Fireside Chat with Rep. Tom Cole: Securing America’s Health Security

Please join the CSIS Commission on Strengthening America’s Health Security on Wednesday, May 25, from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET, for a fireside chat with Congressman Tom Cole (R-OK-04), member of the CSIS Commission on Strengthening America’s Health Security, Ranking Member of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies, and member of the Appropriations Defense Subcommittee. CSIS Commission co-chairs Julie Gerberding, CEO of the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health, and Susan Brooks, former U.S. Representative (R-IN-05) will moderate the discussion.

A brittle legislative environment and competing geopolitical crises have put the United States at serious risk of falling back into the cycle of crisis and complacency in health security. Pandemic fatigue has settled in as the country marks one million lives lost from Covid-19. What are the prospects for getting the domestic and global funding for the Covid-19 response back on track? How can we sustain a bipartisan dialogue and build consensus around stable, multi-year global health security funding to avoid complacency and ensure continued pandemic preparedness?

This event is made possible by the generous support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Book Release Press Conference: The CCP is at War with America [Video]

The Center for Security Policy has just released a new “Team B” product – an exercise in competitive analysis that strongly challenges the Director of National Intelligence’s September 2021 conclusion that the provenance of the SARS-CoV-2 virus cannot be determined. The Team, co-chaired by former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Pete Hoekstra and former Deputy Under Secretary of Defense Lieutenant General William “Jerry” Boykin, U.S. Army (Ret.) and comprised of intelligence professionals, other national security practitioners and subject matter experts, concluded that: - There is no evidence that the virus emerged naturally;- There is, by contrast, significant circumstantial evidence that it came from a PRC biological weapons laboratory; and- The virus was deliberately unleashed on the world by the Chinese Communist Party when it allowed millions of travelers from Wuhan to fly internationally, even as it was locking down movement within China.The authors, identified collectively as Team B III (in the tradition of the official group that produced the first Team B exercise in competitive analysis in 1976 and a second one sponsored by the Center for Security Policy in 2010 entitled, Sharia: The Threat to America), call their report: The CCP is at War with America. Acclaimed China expert Gordon G. Chang wrote the Foreword.The book can be purchased here:https://ccpatwar.com/

Lebanese Journalist: I Don’t Want Lebanese Children Raised in a Culture That Encourages Martyrdom [Video]

Lebanese journalist May Chidiac, who has formerly served as Lebanon’s Minister for Administrative Development, said in an August 5, 2022 interview on Al-Jadeed TV (Lebanon) that she does not want Lebanese children to grow up in a culture that encourages martyrdom and death. She images of Lebanese children carrying coffins and crying that they want to be killed in war may be expressions of Iranian culture, but not of Lebanese culture. In addition, she mentioned Hizbullah’s 2005 assassination attempt against her, and she said that she wishes to exact revenge against her attackers with peace. For more about May Chidiac, see MEMRI TV Clips Nos. 8679, 2022, 1982, and 1190.
