Japan’s GDP Is Collapsing, And Experts Are Warning That China Will Be Next

February 16, 2020 by Michael Snyder

Global economic conditions are really starting to deteriorate quite rapidly. Economists were projecting that Japan’s GDP would shrink by 3.8 percent on an annualized basis in the fourth quarter, but instead it greatly surpassed expectations by plunging 6.3 percent. If Japan’s GDP falls again during the first quarter of 2020, and thanks to the coronavirus outbreak that seems very likely, then the world’s third largest economy will officially be in a recession. But of course the outlook for China is even worse. At this point, economic activity in China has come to a standstill, and this has thrown global supply chains into a state of chaos. It certainly appears that the entire global economy will shrink during the first quarter, and that will be the very first time that has happened in more than a decade. And if this coronavirus outbreak continues to intensify in the months ahead, the economic consequences are going to be absolutely catastrophic. Even though the experts were anticipating a slowdown in Japan, nobody had any idea that it would be this bad… Japan’s gross domestic product shrank at an annualized pace of 6.3 percent from the previous quarter in the three months through December, according to a preliminary estimate by the Cabinet Office released Monday. Economists surveyed had predicted a fall of 3.8 percent, flagging the adverse impact of a sales tax increase, weak global demand and typhoon disruption. The sales tax increase is being primarily blamed for this collapse in GDP, and without a doubt consumer spending in Japan was way down last quarter…

Consumer spending fell 11.1% after the national sales tax was raised in October to 10% from 8%. During the same month, Typhoon Hagibis ravaged a large swathe of the country. Capital spending declined 14.1% and exports slipped 0.4% due to the fallout from the U.S.-China trade war. Japanese officials were hoping that GDP would bounce back this quarter, but now the coronavirus outbreak has changed everything. At this point it is very difficult to be positive about the immediate future of the Japanese economy, and an increasing number of experts are now anticipating a recession. Here is one example… “I’m getting ready for another contraction in Japan’s first quarter. There just aren’t any positive factors to build a positive growth forecast,” said Mari Iwashita, chief market economist at Daiwa Securities Co., flagging her view that the economy is likely falling into recession. The Japanese economy greatly benefits from the horde of tourists that usually come over from China, and the two nations have developed a very close trading relationship. Now that those two factors are being disrupted, the outlook for the second quarter is decidedly grim… “There is a good chance of Japan’s economy falling into a recession,” Yoshiki Shinke, chief economist at Dai-ichi Life Research Institute, said before Monday’s data was released. He flagged the risks of supply chains being affected if the outbreak was prolonged. The coronavirus is taking a toll on the number of Chinese tourists to Japan and manufacturing activity due to the economy’s close ties with China, prompting some economists to forecast a contraction lasting two quarters. Ultimately, it is going to be exceedingly difficult for Japan to avoid a recession. But if Chinese GDP also plunges into recession territory this year, that will be even bigger news. According to the New York Times, “the entire global economy could suffer from a prolonged shock in China”, and so investors will be watching the development of this crisis very carefully. The number of confirmed cases and the official death toll both continue to rise, and the draconian measures that the Chinese have taken to contain the outbreak have slowed the Chinese economy to a crawl. The following is how Zero Hedge summarized the recent economic data that we have seen come out of China… While not perfect, and certainly not a comprehensive view of what is really taking place “on the ground”, the above data is a useful real-time indicator of how the people in China perceive the threat of the coronavirus pandemic, and one thing is abundantly clear: as the pandemic spreads further without containment, and as the charts above flatline, so will China’s economy, which means that while Goldman’s draconian view of what happens to Q1 GDP is spot on, the expectation for a V-shaped recovery in Q2 and onward will vaporize faster than a vial of ultra-biohazardaous viruses in a Wuhan virology lab. Of course many in the financial world are still hoping that things won’t be too bad. For example, Dun and Bradstreet is hoping that the crisis in China will only “cause a drag of approximately one percentage point on global GDP”… China, the world’s second largest economy after US, contributes about 20 percent to the world’s gross domestic product (GDP). However, according to a report by Dun and Bradstreet, the Chinese economy might cause a drag of approximately one percentage point on global GDP if prevention of Coronavirus gets delayed beyond the summer of 2020. That is a wildly optimistic projection, but hopefully they are right. Hopefully the coronavirus will fizzle out with the arrival of warmer weather and the global economy can start to get back to normal. Unfortunately, a return to “normal” is probably not in the cards. Even before this coronavirus outbreak, the global economy was really starting to slow down. Economic numbers were absolutely dismal all over the world, and many experts were warning that we were right on the verge of the next global recession. Now that this outbreak has erupted, we definitely have much more momentum in a downward direction. Very challenging times are ahead, although most people in the western world still don’t understand what is happening. As far as the coronavirus is concerned, the key will be what happens to the number of confirmed cases outside of China. Over the past week that number has roughly doubled, and if that keeps happening every week we will soon have a full-blown global pandemic on our hands. There are now 75 confirmed cases in Singapore, 59 confirmed cases in Japan and 57 confirmed cases in Hong Kong. It is becoming increasingly difficult to keep this virus contained, and we are rapidly approaching a major tipping point.

HSBC To Cut 35,000 Jobs, Shed $100 Billion In Assets As Profits Plunge

by Tyler Durden Tue, 02/18/2020 - 07:04

Banks around the world are supposed to benefit the most from central banks inflating assets, and hyperinflating stock markets, but over the past few years, central banks have instead caused some of the biggest bank job cuts in half a decade. HSBC, Europe's largest bank and troubled lender, although not nearly as troubled as Deutsche Bank, said it would cut upwards of 35,000 jobs, shed $100 billion in assets, and take a massive $7.3 billion hit to goodwill as part of a major overhaul under Chairman Mark Tucker, the company said in a press release on Tuesday morning. This comes months after HSBC's interim CEO Noel Quinn unveiled plans to "remodel" large parts of the bank. The restructuring of the London-based bank is being led by Quinn, who replaced John Flint in August on an interim basis. Quinn is vying for the permanent role of CEO, which the bank said will be decided this year. Europe's biggest bank by assets is expected to focus more on Asia and the Middle East, while it winds down operations in Europe and the US; HSBC derives at least 50% of its revenue in Asia. The bank said net profit plunged 53% to $5.97 billion last year, due to the $7.3BN goodwill hit and also thanks to the record low interest rates and NIRP unleashed by central banks. Tucker said the bank faces substantial challenges in the UK, Hong Kong, and mainland China. He also issued a warning over the Covid-19 outbreak in China and quickly spreading across Asia to Europe, indicating that the virus could impact the bank's performance this year. Quinn confirmed the bank would cut 15% of its workforce over the next two-three years. This is on top of the 10,000 jobs it axed in Oct. "The totality of this program is that our headcount is likely to go from 235,000 to closer to 200,000 over the next three years," Quinn told Reuters. adding that "HSBC will be “exiting businesses where necessary." “Around 30% of our capital is currently allocated to businesses that are delivering returns below their cost of equity, largely in global banking and markets in Europe and the U.S.,” he noted. In its long-struggling U.S. arm, Quinn said HSBC will cut assets in investment banking and markets by almost half, and shut around 70 of its 229 branches. As of September, HSBC was the U.S.’s 14th largest commercial bank according to Federal Reserve data, with around $181 billion assets. Mr. Quinn said he had considered putting the unit up for sale but decided against it because the U.S. is a crucial part of the bank’s global network. The benefits of the restructuring will be evident largely from 2023 onward, said Citigroup analyst Ronit Ghose, who recommended investors sell HSBC shares. And to think it was only last year when 50 banks laid off 77,780 jobs, the most since 91,448 in 2015. With the global economy quickly decelerating, and a virus shock that could tilt the world into recession, if we had to guess, tens of thousands of more banking jobs will be slashed this year.

'Hate Speech Laws' Are Democrats Attempt To Do Away With The 1st Amendment

Apparently, two wrongs now make a “right”, stealing is now a “right” and might makes “right”. How did I arrive at these conclusions? Let me elucidate my reasoning.

Bygone - Days - Years - People - America

In bygone days, more than a hundred years ago now, “some” people in America had slaves. Those who had them lived largely in the South (By the way, a lot of white men in the North died to set the slaves free. Do they get compensation?). Some who held slaves were white and some were black. The slaves were largely black, although some might consider indentured white servants to have also been slaves. It doesn’t matter. We must punish ALL white people today for actions (which by the way were not considered crimes in their time period) for the actions of very few. I will not (and do not) condone slavery. So do not impute any animus to my statement above. It is a simple fact. It was not a crime in the South at the period in time. Nor was it a crime throughout most of humanity’s history. Was it right? No, it was not. But it was prevalent throughout most of our past. Guess what? It wasn’t limited to black people either. Every ethnicity on the planet has been a slave at one point or another in humanity’s history. At no point did any of them receive any kind of compensation and every single one of the other groups managed to pull themselves out of the...

DEVISING PSYCHOTRONIC WEAPONS FOR ANTICHRIST: Redefining Neuroweapons Is New Focus Of Emerging Capabilities In Neuroscience And Neurotechnology

February 18, 2020 by SkyWatch Editor

As global conflicts assume increasingly asymmetric and “gray zone” forms, the ability to employ current and newly developing techniques and tools of neurocognitive science to manipulate human thought and behavior must be viewed as a present and increasing challenge. Ongoing developments in neuroscience and technology, which trend toward 5 to 10 year trajectories of progression, make the brain sciences valid, viable, and of growing value for operational use in warfare, intelligence, and national security (WINS) applications […] particular advances in neuroscience-tech have an increased potential for dual use and direct use in… applicability of gene editing methods, nanoparticles, and other tools that can modify the central nervous system… (READ MORE)

Israel’s Top Rabbi: “I’m Currently In Discussions With The MESSIAH Himself”

February 20, 2020

A Haredi rabbi, privy to secrets concerning the Messiah, was sworn to silence for several decades by hidden righteous men but they have now ordered him for the first time to publicize their messages about current events and the imminent arrival of the Messiah. They tell him that it is literally a matter of life or death. Rabbi Zissholtz explained that he had been charged by these hidden righteous men to break his silence and to begin informing the public of the imminent arrival of the Messiah. “Getting the word out now that the Messiah is closer than ever is a matter of life and death,” Rabbi Zissholtz said. “Haven’t you heard of…

Convention Of ‘Christian Witches’ To Gather In Salem On Easter Sunday To Use Bible For Casting Spells

February 20, 2020

A group of “Christian witches” will be holding their annual convention on Easter in Salem, Massachusetts. The gathering of “Witches, Sorcerers/Soceresses, Wizards, Warlocks, Necromancers, Readers” and “like-minded Magickal Beings” is being organized by Rev. Valerie Love (aka KAISI). Scheduled for April 10-12, it will coincide with the Christian holiday of Easter and feature elements of witchcraft as well as Christian prayers. Love bills herself as a spiritual life coach and “ordained Minister of Spiritual Consciousness.” On her website, Love claims to have been born a witch, and, as a child, “saw spirits and communed with otherworldly entities.” She also claims to be a practicing Christian Witch and founded the Covenant of Christian Witches Mystery School which she claims is in the “Solomonic tradition.” In an Instagram post, Love stated that the Book of Psalms “is really a book of spells…

Sanhedrin Assembly On Third Temple Brings Representatives From Sons Of Ishmael

On Sunday night, the Sanhedrin hosted a conference to discuss the role of the Arabs and Muslims in the Third Temple. The conference featured a lecture by Dr. Mordechai Kedar, a senior lecturer in the Department of Arabic at Bar-Ilan University. Dr. Kedar has frequently referred to the claim that Jerusalem is holy to the Muslims as “fake news.”

Is The Prophesied End-Times Apostasy Happening Right Before Our Eyes?

February 20, 2020

I listened as a man “deconstructed” his Christian faith for nearly 1 million podcast subscribers, saying, “I have jumped ship,” taking his wife and children with him “into the waters.” A local pastor resigned following his own deconstruction of the faith. What prior generations called “a crisis of faith,” this generation terms “deconstruction,” stemming from hard faith questions that seem to have no answers (or perhaps the answers are too hard to bear). The Bible calls it abandoning, falling away or departing from the faith (Matt. 24:10) and it is one of the signs Jesus said we would see prior to His return. The signs are not only prominent today, but converging…

Food Supply to Collapse after Outbreak? Billionaires Predict "Global Problems"

74,703 views  •Feb 15, 2020

Ice Age Farmer  56.7K subscribers

A 2015 Soros-funded think tank predicted a 2020 breakdown of the global food supply following an outbreak -- just as Bill Gates' 2019 "event 201" simulated a global pandemic. Why are multiple billionaires been speaking to outbreaks and food insecurity in 2020? Because Agenda 21/2030 isn't just a name: it's a war on all of us, and it has gone HOT.

AMERICA: This is Why YOU need to prepare, RIGHT NOW, over Coronavirus: Quarantine=No Trucking

Nation News Desk 17 February 2020

Most Americans remain grossly uninformed about the coming MEDICAL QUARANTINES over the continuing - and worsening - Coronavirus outbreak. Those who are keeping up to date, think they still have time to prepare "if things get bad." They're wrong. Your time is almost up. You have only DAYS left. Here's why . . . When the government finally cannot hide the spread here in the United States, they will be forced to utterly lock down the country. There simply won't be any other choice because this virus -- which is actually a military Bio-Weapon that escaped China's only Level 4 Bio-Lab (Story Here) -- is so contagious. It spreads by AIR, Coughing, Sneezing, Urination, Bowel movements. The virus can live on surfaces for up to 28 days, which means door handles, public toilets, cashier counters in stores and supermarkets, computer keyboards and most everything else. It flows through public sewer lines from toilet flushes, then can evaporate up out of manhole covers. The virus has an eighty-three percent (83%) Infection rate. That means if 100 people get EXPOSED to it, 83 of them will get sick. About half of those who get sick, develop serious pneumonia, requiring hospitalization. Of those, about half require Intensive care, intubation and a respirator to breathe. Of the people who get hospitalized, fifteen percent DIE. And that's __if__ they get top-notch hospital care. For those who do not get hospital care, about sixty-five percent die. Now, some quick math: In the United States, there are about 2.4 hospital beds for every 1,000 population. Yes, you read that correctly: 2.4 hospital beds for every 1,000 people. Here's the math: If 1,000 people get exposed, 830 will get sick (83%). About half will need hospitalization. So about 400 people will need a hospital bed. But there are only 2.4 hospital beds for them . . . . So the rest will NOT be able to get care. Certainly not "top-notch" care. 15% of those 2.4 people will die. 65% of the 398 remaining sick people, will die. That converts to 258 people DEAD out of every 1,000 INFECTED. Those are the real world statistics for this virus. The numbers claiming otherwise from inside China are completely false. They are intentionally lying about the number of deaths to make it APPEAR the Communist regime is still in control. It is not. That's why, as of today, 17 February, 2020, a total of seven-hundred-sixty MILLION people in 70 cities in China, are under Quarantine. Health officials here in the USA are already concealing the number of confirmed infections. From officials at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta, who are concealing "over 1,000 cases" as of two weeks ago (Story Here), to the local county Health Commissioner in Erie County, New York (Near Buffalo, Rochester and Watertown) who issued a GAG ORDER preventing police, fire and EMS from talking to anyone about Coronavirus cases, (Story Here), the people in the USA are NOT being told the truth. Officials fear mass-panic will occur if people find out, so they are INTENTIONALLY keeping the whole thing "hush-hush." Now, here's the uglier part . . . Quarantines mean no one in, and no one out. That means no trucks for deliveries. According to an analysis of the United States transportation network, performed by the American Trucking Association, here's what "No trucks" turns into: You must prepare right now while you still can. Here are suggestions: The best strategy for this is NOT to be exposed. Fat chance of that; we ALL go out: Work, school, shopping, recreation, and so forth. So how might we protect ourselves while we're out? Well, the fact this virus can be spread by air, in addition to staying alive on surfaces like counter tops, desks, water fountains, door handles, inside cars and buses, product packages on store shelves that someone else handled, or sneezed-on or coughed-on, - including ones that get delivered by mail, FedEx, UPS, etc. -- complicates things greatly.

Step One: Stay home. Do not go out unless you absolutely MUST.

Step Two: Presuming you have to go out (we ALL do) wear a filter mask eye and hand protective gear (below). The N-95 filter masks are almost completely sold out already, nationwide. So you can get a better mask rated as N-100 or P-100 for the time being until THEY sell out. Links to various suppliers are HERE-N-95 and HERE N-100. (I am NOT the seller)

You can also get the VASTLY AVAILABLE 3M 7500 (HERE) which uses 3M 2091 filters (HERE) This mask system is more expensive, but it works and is widely still available. (Again, I am NOT the seller)

Get Eye Protection, either cheap swimmer goggles (HERE) or better safety goggles (HERE)

Get a box of rubber/nitrile Gloves (Here) Wear this gear when you go out. Yes, you'll look and feel ridiculous. But you are much more likely to have the last laugh because YOU are protecting yourself.

THIS IS URGENTLY IMPORTANT: The absolute moment you get home, take off your shoes and leave them in the foyer. DO NOT WALK AROUND YOUR HOUSE IN SHOES YOU WORE OUTSIDE. You may have walked on a large amount of infected material as you were out and if you wear those shoes in the house, the virus will spread in the house. Next: Go into the bathroom, take off your clothing, put it in a hamper or plastic bag, and take a shower. You HAVE TO WASH OFF any virus that may have landed on your body or hair, while you were out. Put on clean garments. You cannot go sit in your chair or lay on your couch or bed in clothing you wore outside. The virus will come off the clothing, onto the furniture and pow, someone in the house catches it. Make every person in your household do this the absolute moment they come home. This virus is HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS and it KILLS people. We cannot skimp or get lazy protecting ourselves. Eat right, take vitamins (I use Centrum), and, I don't want to sound hokey, or like some Bible thumper, pray to Almighty God that you be protected by Him during this crisis. I'm not kidding. I mean it: PRAY. Even if you haven't prayed in decades, start now. "Hi God, it's me (so and so). I know I haven't prayed to you in a long time, but I'm coming back to you now. . . . ." And then talk honestly and earnestly to him, in a very quiet voice. Just remember, this is God, not a magician to be summoned to do tricks or render services at our beckon call. He made us. We are HIS to do with a HE sees fit. OTHER "PREPS" with Links Have Emergency food (HERE, HERE, and HERE) in the house in case Quarantine gets implemented, so you and your family can eat for the 6 weeks or so such Quarantines are likely to last.

Have Emergency Water (HERE) stored up in case the water supply gets contaminated.

Here is a complete list of "Preps" that folks might consider for themselves. RELATED:

If Apple is hurting due to the coronavirus, its suppliers and rivals likely are too

[Reuters] By Stephen Nellis and Josh Horwitz Reuters February 18, 2020

SAN FRANCISCO/SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Apple Inc's <AAPL.O> surprise warning that it will likely fall short of this quarter's sales target due to the coronavirus epidemic points to much pain for its chip and other suppliers as well as for rivals who also rely on China to build their products. Revising guidance set just three weeks ago, the world's most valuable tech company said while many factories that make iPhones have reopened for work, they were ramping up more slowly than anticipated. The outbreak, which has infected more than 72,000 and prevented many employees from returning to work due to travel and quarantine restrictions, was reverberating throughout the U.S. firm's supply chain, a source familiar with Apple's operations in China said. "If one component factory stays closed and they're the only supplier, then everyone has to stop and wait. And if there are two suppliers and one is shut down, then we need the other to do more," said the source who was not authorized to speak to media and declined to be identified. Stacy Rasgon, a Bernstein analyst, said Apple's woes probably also mean fewer chips will be sold throughout the mobile device industry because the overwhelming majority are made in China. "Maybe this is the wake up call. I would be astonished if Apple is the only one," he said. "Every electronic supply chain runs through China in a big way.  "Research firm Canalys estimates both Apple, which outsources much of its manufacturing to Taiwan's Foxconn <2317.TW>, and rival Huawei Technologies [HWT.UL] have 99% of their production in China. The world's No. 1 smartphone market is likely see sales halve in the first quarter due to the virus, analysts have said.

Chinese rivals Oppo, Xiaomi Corp <1810.HK> and Vivo have 83%, 72%, and 65% of their production in China respectively. Reuters reported last week that roughly 10% of Foxconn's workers in China have resumed production, while other plants in the country remain largely shuttered. Foxconn denied the reports in a company filing without elaborating. A SLEW OF SUPPLIERS Shares of Apple's chip suppliers fell on the news on Tuesday, with Samsung Electronics <005930.KS> losing 2.8%, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC) <2330.TW> down 2.9% and SK Hynix <000660.KS> shedding 2.9%. Analysts at ANZ noted Qualcomm Inc <QCOM.O> was vulnerable to disruptions caused by the epidemic as it supplies mobile modem chips to almost all major smartphone makers and generates nearly half of its sales from China. U.S.-based suppliers that do a lot of business with Apple include Broadcom Inc <AVGO.O>, Qorvo Inc <QRVO.O> and Skyworks Solutions Inc <SWKS.O>.

Broadcom makes a range of wireless components for iPhones and said last month it had signed a deal to supply Apple for contracts worth as much as $15 billion. Sales to Apple accounted for 20% of its annual revenue in fiscal 2019. Qorvo, which sells parts that help phones connect to wireless data networks, generated around one third of its revenue from Apple in fiscal 2019. Skyworks, another wireless component supplier, got more than 10% of its annual revenue from Apple. Other U.S. suppliers to Apple include Texas Instruments Inc <TXN.O>. Its battery charging chips have been found in iPhone teardowns, although the company sells across a broad spectrum of the electronics industry. In Europe, the Netherlands' NXP Semiconductors <NXPI.O> supplies Apple with the near-field communications chips used in the iPhone's Apple Pay contactless payments feature, according to TechInsights teardowns and industry analysts. Chips made by Franco-Italian firm STMicroelectronics <STM.MI> <STM.PA> are used for wireless battery charging and for infrared cameras in iPhones, according to teardowns. Its shares lost 3.5% in morning trade. Investors in chipmakers have until now have been willing to look past temporary coronavirus disruptions, hoping for a sales recovery in the second half, said Bernstein's Rasgon. Mike Fawkes, who previously ran supply chain operations for Hewlett-Packard, said even if it wanted to, Apple was unlikely to find alternative production sources soon. "They're stuck with China for some period of time," he said. "It's very hard when you're managing a big battleship like they are."

10 Plagues That Are Hitting Our Planet Simultaneously

February 17, 2020 by Michael Snyder

All of a sudden, really crazy things are starting to happen all over the world. Giant swarms of locusts are absolutely devastating entire regions, extremely unusual storms are confounding meteorologists, earthquake and volcanic activity are both on the rise, and five very dangerous diseases are sweeping across the globe. So far in 2020, it has just been one thing after another, and many are speculating about what could be ahead if events continue to escalate. The other day my wife mentioned that one of her friends suggested that I should put together a list of all the weird stuff that has been taking place, and so that is what I have decided to do. The following is a list of 10 plagues that are hitting our planet simultaneously… #1 Armies Of LocustsAs I detailed the other day, swarms of locusts the size of major cities have been devouring entire farms in Africa in as little as 30 seconds. These swarms have also been spreading throughout the Middle East, and now we have learned that they have even reached China…

A gigantic swarm of locusts that belong to a plague that has ravaged millions of acres of crops across east Africa has been spotted reaching the Chinese border.

Billions of the insects have destroyed food supplies across Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia in what has been described as the worst plague for decades.

#2 Extremely Bizarre Weather Patterns – It is almost as if virtually all of the old rules have suddenly been thrown out the window. An all-time record 209 mph wind gust just hit Calfiornia, and absolutely crazy storms are happening all over the planet. For example, just check out what just took place in Australia… Sydney has been thrown into chaos by a devastating storm that saw two months of rainfall in just two days – forcing mass evacuations, leaving 150,000 homes without power, and prompted warnings not to drive to work. The storm dumped 400mm of rain on the city over the weekend, causing mayhem for commuters on Monday morning with roads blocked, ferries canceled and trains suffering major delays across the network.

#3 Unprecedented Flooding – We are seeing unusual flooding all over the world right now, and the flooding that is devastating the southern U.S. at this moment is being called “unprecedented”…

In Jackson, Mississippi, hundreds of residents either watched their homes flood over the weekend or worried their residence would soon be drenched as the Pearl River crested Monday at 36.8 feet, its third-highest level ever recorded – behind only 1979 and 1983.

Calling the Jackson floods “historic” and “unprecedented,” Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves said in a Sunday press conference that “we do not anticipate this situation to end anytime soon. It will be days before we are out of the woods and the waters recede.”

#4 Major Earthquakes Really big earthquakes are happening with such frequency now that it is very difficult for me to write about them all. For example, a magnitude 7.7 quake recently struck off of the coast of Jamaica, but I have been so busy writing about other disasters that I have not even mentioned it until now… A magnitude 7.7 earthquake struck Tuesday about 80 miles from Jamaica, shaking people in the Caribbean and as far away as Miami.

A tsunami of 0.4 feet was recorded in the Cayman Islands at George Town, but no tsunami was observed at Port Royal, Jamaica, or Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic.

#5 Unusual Volcanic Eruptions – Seismic activity has been rising all over the globe, and over the past couple of months we have seen volcanoes all over the world pop off like firecrackers. One of the most notable eruptions that we have seen in recent days was the most powerful eruption of Mount Merapi in 90 years…

One of Indonesia’s most active volcanoes, Mount Merapi just experienced its most powerful eruption since 1930! The eruption reportedly took place on Thursday and was caught on video displaying a powerful and terrifying eruption showing the moment the crater exploded and launched lava and ash an estimated 2,000 meters into the air forcing local residents to stay outside of the designated no-go zone 3km (1.8 miles) from the crater.

#6 The Coronavirus – Needless to say, the coronavirus outbreak in China has been getting more headlines than anything else on this list. The numbers continue to rise, and many are speculating that this could potentially become the worst global pandemic since the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918. In a desperate attempt to keep the truth from getting out, the World Health Organization is asking the major social media companies to censor their users… The World Health Organization has held talks with tech giants to stop the spread of coronavirus “misinformation,” despite the fact that some things once labeled “misinformation” have since turned out to be true.

The meeting was organized by the WHO but hosted by Facebook at its Menlo Park campus in California. Attendees included representatives from Amazon, Twilio, Dropbox, Google, Verizon, Salesforce, Twitter, YouTube, Airbnb, Kinsa and Mapbox.

#7 The African Swine Fever – “Pig Ebola” has already wiped out millions upon millions of pigs in China, and it has now spread to more than 40 other countries. The price of pork is absolutely skyrocketing in China right now, and to help fill the demand the Chinese are increasingly importing pork from U.S. sources…

Tyson Foods Inc. says it’s just starting to see the benefits of the African swine fever outbreak in China, which includes a 600% year-over-year increase in pork orders to China in the fiscal first quarter.

#8 The H1N1 Swine Flu – Unlike the African Swine Fever, the H1N1 Swine Flu can actually kill humans. In fact, it has already killed more people outside of China than the coronavirus outbreak has. For instance, 13 people in Taiwan died from the virus in one recent week alone…

As of now, the H1N1 virus is posing a great threat once again as it has claimed 13 lives in Taiwan in the last week. This virus is highly contagious and is known to spread from human to human. It is especially dangerous for those with a compromised immune system like those suffering from chronic medical conditions and long-term health conditions.

#9 The H5N1 Bird FluThis strain of the bird flu caused a massive global scare a number of years ago, and now it is experiencing a stunning resurgence. China has had to kill thousands of chickens so far, and experts are warning that this outbreak could be just getting started…

China also is reportedly dealing with an outbreak of the deadly H5N1 bird flu in chickens in the Hunan province, an area that borders the province where the coronavirus emerged, according to the South China Morning Post.

As of Feb. 1, local authorities had culled 17,828 poultry after the H5NI outbreak, according to a statement by China’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs.

#10 The H5N8 Bird FluThis strain is different from the H5N1 bird flu, but many believe that it is even more frightening. It has started to pop up in numerous places around the globe, and experts were really surprised when it recently made an appearance in Germany…

Germany has reported an outbreak of the highly pathogenic H5N8 bird flu virus in a backyard in the southwestern part of the country, the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) said on Monday.

The virus killed 44 birds out of a flock of 69 in Bretzfeld, in the Baden-Wurttemberg region, the Paris-based OIE said, citing a report from Germany’s food and agriculture ministry.

Can any of you remember a time when we have been hit by crisis after crisis like this all at once?

2020 has certainly started off with quite a bang, and many expect global events to continue to accelerate.

So hold on to your hats, because things are likely to get even crazier in the months ahead.

Mitt Romney Caught Taking Big Money Donations from George Soros

Mitt Romney has taken big money donations from George Soros Anti-Trump Republican Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) has been caught taking large donations from liberal billionaire George Soros, financial records have revealed.  The globalist financier’s Soros Fund Management invests heavily in political figures, including Democrat powerhouses such as former President Barack Obama, Sen. Chuck Schumer, twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, and others. Back in 2012

George Soros stated that he saw little difference between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama.

According to political donations records, it has now been revealed that Romney is now also on the George Soros’ payroll. The Utah senator left his Republican colleagues stunned when he sided with Democrats to shun his own party and vote to convict President Donald Trump in the partisan impeachment trial. Records show Mitt Romney took $17,250 from George Soros via Soros Fund Management According to OpenSecrets.org, Romney has accepted at least $17,500 from Soros Fund Management.  The organization is a left-wing influence operation funded by George Soros. The donations listed are the ones made by publically by Soros, who has a track record for “immoral” financial activity.  Hungarian-born Soros is widely regarded as the man who broke the Bank of England in 1992. He was also declared a “financial terrorist” in Malaysia and found guilty of insider trading in Europe. George Soros has a reputation for having little respect for the law and no interest in playing by the rules. By accepting money from Soros, the move will surely raise further questions regarding Romney’s credibility. Remarkably for a Republican, Romney actually makes the top 20 of politicians who have accepted money from Soros Fund Management. Mitt Romney shunned his Republican colleagues to side with Democrats in their anti-Trump impeachment campaign Romney’s vote during the Democrats’ impeachment campaign has certainly ruffled the feathers of his fellow-Republicans.

First, he was notified by a tweet from the chair of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Matt Schlapp that he was “not invited” to the annual conference.  Schlapp’s decision came after Romney became one of two Republicans in the Senate to vote to call additional witnesses in the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.  “The ‘extreme conservative’ and Junior Senator from the great state of Utah, @SenatorRomney is formally NOT invited to #CPAC2020,” Schlapp tweeted. And now a lawmaker has filed a bill to allow Utah citzens to recall an elected United States senator. The lawmaker, Rep. Tim Quinn, R-Heber City, told the Deseret News in an interview shortly after the bill was made public that it’s not meant to target any specific sitting Utah senator — but it comes amid heightened national attention on Sen. Mitt Romney, who has been among the few Republican senators publicly critical of President Donald Trump.  While Quinn said his bill isn’t aimed at Romney or any specific senator, he acknowledged his bill comes at a time that people will likely construe it that way.   “I know that’s what’s going to be the narrative,” Quinn said.  “If it were, then it might make sense to have a sunset on it.”

Two arrested after armed gang makes run for toilet rolls in HK$1,600 heist as coronavirus panic shows no signs of easing

Masked men struck outside Wellcome store in Mong Kok around 6am, escaping with about 50 packets holding 600 rolls

Barrister says case is serious and toilet paper in current circumstances can be considered valuable

Chan Ho-him

Published: 11:26am, 17 Feb, 2020

Armed robbers stole about HK$1,600 worth of toilet paper from outside a Hong Kong supermarket on Monday morning, as panic over the spread of the coronavirus showed little signs of easing. Three masked men stole 600 rolls in about 50 packets from a delivery man outside a Wellcome store in Mong Kok, at around 6am on Monday. Police said one of the men was armed with two knives. Two people, aged 49 and 54, had been arrested by midday on Monday, and the force said they were hunting down three more people thought to be aged between 20 and 30. The stolen toilet rolls were found in a guest house on Sai Yee Street, not far from where it was taken. Detectives from the Mong Kok criminal investigation unit are handling the case. Wellcome said its staff were threatened and robbed while they were unloading a delivery of toilet rolls from a lorry at the store. No one was injured. “This is a senseless act and we are shocked,” a spokeswoman from the supermarket chain said. She added all Wellcome stores had sufficient supply of toilet rolls with regular supply coming in, as she urged customers not to bulk purchase in panic. “A temporary shortage was caused by a sudden and unusual surge in demand. We will do our utmost to speed up replenishment in our stores until the situation stabilises,” she said. etc.

Japan Releases First 500 'Diamond Princess' Passengers As 14-Day Quarantine Ends

by Tyler Durden Wed, 02/19/2020 - 04:49

Summary:

Death toll passes 2,000 as Hubei reports 132 deaths for Tuesday

Japan to release first wave of 500 passengers + crew at 10:30 am in Tokyo

Florida health officials mysteriously refuse to share virus info with reporters

Russia bars all Chinese from entering

NYT notes signs of impending economic distress

South Korea announces "emergency steps" to prepare for outbreak.

South Korea announces 15 new cases

* * *

Update (1940ET): It's Wednesday morning in Yokohama. So you know what that means.

Japanese health authorities are beginning the process of offloading the remaining 2,000+ passengers and crew aboard the 'Diamond Princess', a ship that has been under quarantine for 14 days. The offloading will take place in phases over three days, finally wrapping up on Friday. The first 500 people are set to leave at around 10:30 am Tokyo time on Wednesday. There will be no preference given to different nationalities, according to Japan's Ministry of Health. Many who depart will be subject to another 14 days of quarantine, including any Americans who elected to stay on the ship instead of traveling back to the US on the evac flight. Roughly 40 Americans were also excluded from that flight because they were being treated for the virus in a Japanese hospital. So far, 542 people - including at least 14 of the 300 or so Americans who traveled back to the US on Monday in Japan - have tested positive for the virus. And while Japan says it has tested everybody aboard, doctors and experts say there's no way to certain that people being released won't be carrying the virus - hence the quarantines when they return home. But where will they go between now and then? And with no immediate after-care plans - at least none that have been publicly disclosed, it looks like Japan is about to set thousands of people aboard the most infected environment outside China loose in Tokyo.  Of course, Japanese authorities are so paranoid about the Olympics, one would think they would be doing everything in their power to stop an outbreak in Tokyo, especially at such a sensitive time.  About 500 people are set to leave the ship from around 10:30 a.m. Tokyo time on Wednesday, with no preference given to any particular nationality, Japan’s Health Ministry said. Hopefully, health officials will manage to convince the world that they successfully screened for the virus. The ship was first quarantined on Feb. 5 more than a week after a man who tested positive for the virus in Hong Kong disembarked. Journalists have shared stories of desperation and paranoia from those trapped on the ship, making it sound like such a nightmare that many who read those stories may never want to travel on a cruise. In other news, Yonhap reported minutes ago that South Korea has another 15 cases, increasing the countries total by roughly one-third to 46 one day after the country's president warned of an "economic emergency" as companies like Hyundai suffer from supply shortages from China. The South Korean government has already announced a fiscal stimulus package to help companies hurt by the virus.

* * *

Update (1720ET): Health officials in Hubei reported a big jump in deaths on Tuesday, shattering the state's narrative that the virus is being beaten because the number of confirmed cases and deaths were falling. And with the new figures, the China death toll has hit 2,000 exactly, up from 1,868 deaths as of the end of Monday, according to China's NHC. HUBEI REPORTS 1,693 NEW CORONAVIRUS CASES, 132 DEATHS FEB. 18 CHINA'S CORONAVIRUS DEATH TOLL HITS 2,000

Meanwhile, state officials in Florida are refusing to release any information about the state's efforts to contain a coronavirus outbreak, including data about the number of patients who have been tested for the virus, according to the Tampa Bay Times. "The goal of this public health response is containment," said state Surgeon General Scott Rivkees, who presented to the Senate Health Policy committee Tuesday. "And if there’s a confirmed case, it will absolutely be reported." Rivkees added that the state wasn't allowed to release the information because of "privacy concerns" - likely a rule about patient confidentiality codified in the federal HIPPA guidelines. However, veteran journalists in the state pressed the surgeon general: These numbers were shared with the public during Zika, and since the numbers don't include any personalized details, there shouldn't be any conflict with HIPPA.

Despite their protests, the state simply deferred to the Department of Health, which has created a 700-person incident management team to liaise with states and help the country prepare for the potential outbreak. Certain protocols have been shared with officials in every state. Though if not sharing this information is part of some kind of federal 'protocol', then how come Washington State is sharing some of this information directly on a Department of Public Health website? Also in the US: the CDC said earlier that the State Department is planning to bar any Americans who were aboard the Diamond Princess but didn't return with the evacuees from returning to the country until next month.

Update (1600ET): Writing in the latest update to its coronavirus live blog, the New York Times points out that more signs of economic pain from the outbreak have emerged on Tuesday. It cites HSBC's bloodletting, Jaguar's warning about looming production problems and Apple's latest production warning as worrying signs of corporate blowback even as the Nasdaq closed at a record high.

Economic fallout from the new coronavirus epidemic continued to spread on Tuesday, with new evidence emerging in manufacturing, financial markets, commodities, banking and other sectors.

HSBC, one of the most important banks in Hong Kong, said it plans to cut 35,000 jobs and $4.5 billion in costs as it faces headwinds that include the coronavirus outbreak and months of political strife in Hong Kong. The bank, based in London, had come to depend increasingly on China for growth.

Jaguar Land Rover warned that the coronavirus could soon begin to create production problems at its assembly plants in Britain. Like many carmakers, Jaguar Land Rover uses parts made in China, where many factories have shut down or slowed production; Fiat Chrysler, Renault and Hyundai have already reported interruptions as a result.

U.S. stocks declined on Tuesday, a day after Apple warned that it would miss its sales forecasts due to disruption in China, as concerns about the impact of the outbreak weighed on the outlook for the global economy.

Stocks tied to the near-term ups and downs of the economy slumped, with energy, financials and industrial shares the leading losers. The S&P 500 index was down 0.5 percent at midafternoon in New York trading. Bond yields declined, with the 10-year Treasury note yielding 1.55 percent, suggesting investors are lowering their expectations for economic growth and inflation. With much of the Chinese economy stalled, demand for oil has fallen and prices were down on Tuesday, with a barrel of West Texas Intermediate selling for roughly $52.

In Germany, where the economy depends heavily on global demand for machinery and automobiles, a key indicator showed economic sentiment has tumbled this month, as the economic outlook has weakened.

You know it's bad when CNBC's unspoken economics 'Word of the Day' is 'one-off'.

Meanwhile, America's 'paper of record' reported that at least 150 million people in China are living under severe lockdown restrictions confining them largely to their homes. That's one-tenth of China's population, and 1% of the global population.

Kind of hard to work and consume when you can't leave the house.

Update (1410ET): In an interview with Fox News, the CDC's Dr. Anthony Fauci said the risk to Americans of contracting COVID-19 is relatively low right now, but that "could change" given the chaotic and unpredictable situation. "The risk clearly is relatively low right now, but that could change. So we're telling our American citizens to not be fearful, to not be afraid, but to keep an eye on it." Dr. Fauci added that the federal government has quarantined every known case of the virus. "The people in this country that were aware of being infected they've been contacted, isolated and made aware that this is the case." Just in case any get through, the US is starting 'sentinel surveillance' of patients around the country who go to the hospital to report flu-like symptoms, as we reported yesterday. "That will give us a better idea of whether there are any cases that we haven't identified or noticed," the doctor added. Watch the clip below: Update (1300ET): In a landmark decision, Russia has temporarily banned Chinese from entry as of Feb. 20, becoming the first country to ban all Chinese from entry in response to the coronavirus outbreak, according to Russian news agency TASS. This is only the latest step from Russia, which has already closed most entry points along its 4,200-kilometer border, suspended e-visas and work visas for Chinese nationals. Russia has already reported two cases of coronavirus - the only cases confirmed in the country so far - both involving Chinese nationals. Though there haven't been many cases, there have been a number of interesting virus-related headlines out of Russia in recent weeks. Two men in the city of Chelyabinsk were fined for hooliganism after they filmed a prank video where they pretended to shoot a man infected with the virus in a park. The men wore white hazmat suits and face masks while simulating the shooting of the third person, who wasn't actually infected.

Russia discharged a Chinese national from the hospital in the Siberian city of Chita on Wednesday after he recovered from a coronavirus infection, the second of Russia's two confirmed cases of coronavirus to recover. The other victim, also a Chinese national, was also said by authorities to have recovered and been released from quarantine in Siberia's Tyumen region.

Meanwhile,apropos of nothing, BNO News shared one of the latest videos out of Hubei Province, which we'd like to now share with you.

Video from Hubei province shows doctors running across the street to take patients who are critically ill with coronavirus to a new ICU unit. It took 30 minutes per patient, 10 in total - Xinhua pic.twitter.com/16XLrYzB8l 

— BNO Newsroom (@BNODesk) February 18, 2020

This could be an Olympic Sport (if they don't cancel the Olympics, that is).

As a handful of brave foreign correspondents continue to report on the outbreak inside mainland China, the Epoch Times' reporter Jennifer Zeng revealed on Tuesday that 71 people from one workplace in Beijing have been placed under quarantine after one employee was infected by COVID-19.  We're glad to see China's shift back to work is going so well.

* * *

Update (0840ET): Global Times editor Hu Xijin, a government mouthpiece whose tweets were closely followed during the 'Phase 1' trade-deal negotiations, is touting China's dubious data as a sign that the Communist Party is winning the 'People's War' against COVID-19. * * *

Last night, the western press exposed the Americans for breaking Japan's quarantine on the 'Diamond Princess' by ferrying some 14 infected individuals to the US. But with one day left to go before the Japanese government ends its quarantine and releases thousands of terrified and paranoid passengers into the streets of Tokyo. On Tuesday, another 88 passengers from the Diamond Princess were diagnosed with the virus, bringing the total to 542. Japan has completed tests for all passengers and crew aboard the ship as of Monday, but the results for the last batch of tests aren't expected until Wednesday, the day that the quarantine is slated to end. So far, results are back for 2,404 passengers and crew, out of the 3,711 who were on board the ship when the quarantine began on Feb. 5. Japanese Health Minister Katsunobu Kato said Tuesday that people who have tested negative for the virus would start leaving on Wednesday, but that the process of releasing passengers and crew won't be finished until Friday, according to the Washington Post. The remaining 61 American passengers on the DP who opted not to join the evacuation will not be allowed to return to the US until March 4, according to the American embassy in Tokyo. The governments of Australia, Hong Kong and Canada have also said they would evacuate passengers. Elsewhere, Japan confirmed three more cases of the virus. This time, they were confirmed in Wakayama, a prefecture in eastern Japan. In the latest indication that the 14-day quarantine simply wasn't enough to kill the virus, a British couple has tested positive for the virus just one day before Japanese authorities are set to release everybody from quarantine, according to the Guardian. "David and Sally Abel, a British couple onboard the Diamond Princess cruise liner in Japan, have tested positive for coronavirus, a day before passengers who tested negative were due to start leaving the ship after spending two weeks in quarantine." Including all of the cases announced overnight, there are now 73,336 confirmed cases of the virus worldwide, compared with 1,874 deaths. As the battle against the virus rages in Wuhan, Liu Zhiming, 51, a neurosurgeon and the director of the Wuchang Hospital in Wuhan, became the latest high-profile medical worker to succumb to the virus, as we noted last night. Late last week, China confirmed that nearly 2,000 medical workers had been infected. The Commission overseeing China's virus response has released a statement commemorating Liu's life and honoring his death. "From the start of the outbreak, Comrade Liu Zhiming, without regard to his personal safety, led the medical staff of Wuchang Hospital at the front lines of the fight against the epidemic," the commission said. Dr. Liu "made significant contributions to our city’s fight to prevent and control the novel coronavirus," it added. In Beijing, senior officials including President Xi continued to play down the economic blowback from the virus. During remarks on Tuesday, Xi insisted that China could still meet its 2020 economic targets - which called for a doubling of the size of the Chinese economy in 10 years - despite the outbreak. Of course, China' goalseeked economic data has never offered a truly accurate reflection of the world's second-largest economy. And a report by PitchBook warns that Chinese startups are struggling to raise money as the epidemic complicates deal talks an deals a serious blow to the country's 'venture capital' scene.  From the start of the year through Feb. 12, venture capital activity in China fell from 381 to 137 deals, and the capital raised declined from $4.05 billion to $1.37 billion, compared to the same period last year. Prior outbreaks like SARS and swine flu also weighed on investment activity. Moving south to Seoul, South Korean President Moon Jae-in called for South Korea to take "emergency steps" to prepare for a more widespread outbreak of COVID-19. In contrast to Xi, Moon warned the coronavirus could have a "bigger and longer-lasting impact" on his country's economy than the 2015 MERS outbreak, which prompted South Korea to roll out a supplemental budget while the central bank cut rates, WaPo reports. Speculators are now betting on a rate cut at the Bank of Korea's meeting next week. Singapore also announced on Tuesday that it had earmarked $2.8 billion for virus relief measures to help stabilize its economy and assist workers. Over in the Philippines, 25,000 stranded workers can now return to work. French Health Minister Olivier Veran said Tuesday there was a "credible risk" that the virus could transform into a pandemic, Reuters reports. "This is both a working assumption and a credible risk," Veran told France Info radio, when asked about the possibility of the coronavirus spreading globally. Taking a brief break from the news, our disturbing video of the day comes from Xinjiang, the far-flung province that's home to millions of Uyghur Muslims.  In this video, shared by the Epoch Times' Jennifer Zeng, a police officer suddenly collapses while walking. His current status is unknown. Offering a lesson in contrasts, the Global Times, a mainland tabloid, has continued to tweet lighthearted human interest stories from the heart of the outbreak. Today's story: A health-care worker getting married in the heart of the outbreak. The GT also reported that officials in Hubei are continuing with a "comprehensive search" for patients with fevers, and have even started tracking down every individual who has purchased fever or cough medicine since Jan. 20. As we reported last night, Apple published a press release admitting it "does not expect to meet the revenue guidance we provided for the March quarter" due to coronavirus-related issues.

Since we haven't reported a full breakdown of cases in a while, here's a complete list and breakdown of infections by country and territory, courtesy of the AP:

Mainland China: 1,868 deaths among 72,436 cases, chiefly in Hubei

Hong Kong: 58 cases, 1 death

Macao: 10

Japan: 607 cases, including 542 from a cruise ship docked in Yokohama, 1 death

Singapore: 77 cases

Thailand: 35

South Korea: 31

Malaysia: 22

In a recent study, China's CCDC found that the virus's fatality rate - 14.8% - is for people aged 80 or older with co-occurring medical conditions. Young and healthy people, meanwhile, typically experience much more mild symptoms, according to the BBC. Along those same lines, the WHO confirmed on Tuesday that the virus manifests as only a minor infection in four out of five people who contract it, according to the Guardian. For everybody still saying that the virus is no more dangerous than the annual flu outbreak, here's some food for thought: An analysis of 44,672 coronavirus patients in China whose diagnoses were confirmed by laboratory testing has found that 1,023 had died by Feb. 11, a fatality rate of 2.3%. That's far higher than the mortality rate for the seasonal flu. Finally, the New York Times has reviewed lockdown conditions across China, and confirmed that more than 760 million people are living in neighborhoods or villages with at least some imposed strictures regulating residents' comings and goings. That represents half of China's population, and one out of every ten people on the planet. Some neighborhoods only require residents to show ID, sign in and have their temperature checked. Other villages prohibit bringing in guests. In places with more stringent restrictions, households are only allowed to send one person out at a time - and often not even every day. Last night, Zeng reported that in some parts of Wuhan the lockdown has become so strict that people aren't allowed to come outside at all.

A Huge Wake-Up Call - Coronavirus & Prepping Go Hand-In-Hand: Reader Recommendations And Preparing For Supply Chain Disruptions As We Learn In China Some Cannot Leave Their Homes, Even For Groceries

By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine February 17, 2020

While Stefan Stanford has been doing an outstanding job updating readers on new information about the Coronavirus, from "super spreaders" to possible martial law as we are seeing in parts of China, where the virus originated, there is another aspect that I would like to cover. ANP readers have also, as always, been a wonderful source of information, from suggestions, to links sharing every and any new report as they find it, to help other readers stay fully informed, as well as recommendations to help others get and stay prepared. Before we touch on certain points such as what ANP readers are utilizing the most, and then the need to prepare for what is assuredly going to be a supply chain disruption, whether large or small, and the need for prevention and protections, there are a few points we would like to make.

• One: While we do provide Amazon affiliate links, which we do make pennies on the dollar for, if a reader has the means to get the same product from a store close to their location, for a better price, we encourage the readers to do so.

It does not matter where readers get what they need to protect themselves from this virus or even just colds and flu during the season, all that matters is that they have that protection. If like us, and there is no access to a store without a long drive, the ease of delivery may be handy.

• Two: While we can access the products bought from the affiliate links we do not have access to any personal information i.e. CC information, address or name of buyer. The whole reason we use affiliate systems is because we do not want your personal information. Heck, companies with far bigger websites than ours, with the ability for the best protections, have seen data breaches over the past few years, so we don't want responsibility for keeping personal information.

• Three: Last but not least, we are listing the products that readers have gravitated to, have bought, in bulk at times, using their favoring one over another as our basis for recommendation. Many ANP readers are preppers, some newer and some have been prepping for years, so who better to recommend certain products than them? HEALTH: PREVENTION AND PROTECTION

The most ordered products, by far, are the ones used to prevent the spread, and protect against, the Coronavirus (or colds and flu) should it appear in a city or neighborhood near you, from cleaning products to masks and gloves. This is not as unlikely as some might think as we have a reader lives within miles of one of the people in the U.S. tested for the Coronavirus. The top recommendations from purchased products are, hands down, the disinfectants, refills, masks, gloves and disposable body suits. Links below listed in order of appearance in reader recommendation list. Some of the products listed were not on our original lists, but were recommended by purchase from the "related" list, so we made sure they were the same and chose the least expensive but still the same quality. In other words, there different links to the same exact product, all within dollars of each other, so we choose the least expensive to share below. If readers have ordered and tried any of the products below, please share your opinion on which is best in your opinion, in the comment section.

SUPPLY CHAIN DISRUPTION - HYDROPONICS, SUPER FOODS AND INDOOR GROWING Recently Stefan covered the likelihood of supply chain disruptions especially since so many products are "made in China," and where they also supply the majority of medications to the U.S., so while other top links were a variety of Emergency Survival Foods, and Water Filtration Systems, we would prefer to think about long term as in, what would we do if we ran out of those supplies after a few months, or maybe the first year. That brings us to super foods, hydroponics, being able to grow and maintain a garden indoors all year round so when winter hits, no one will starve. Back in May 2019, Steve Quayle, who has been a proponent of prepping since before it became a thing, made some suggestions to us when asked what he thought was important but rarely addressed, and his suggestions were sprouting, hydroponics and stocking up on protein powders.

All excellent suggestions that we at ANP had never addressed either, proving that we can all learn something new. Via that article:

• We'll start with sprouts, often described as a "miracle food" as they are healthy and nutrious, offer vitamin, mineral, amino acid and protein boosts, are affordable, requires no soil (perfect for apartment preppers with a limited amount of space), and offer a large variety, sprout seeds, beans, legumes or grains, and more. The information on sprouting is out there if one knows what to look for and the easy process "involves germinating seeds and legumes, and then eating them raw," so they don't even have to be cooked, and most can be added to soups, stews, salads, among a number of other foods. In researching sprouts we found that they can be grown in simple mason jars, or sprouting trays that barely take up any room and some sprouts can be ready to eat within a week. (Note - Some can take 10-20 days to harvest) Hydroponics is a method of growing nutritious sprouts and other greens and vegetables that doesn't require soil. While researching this method, we were amazed to see how many different herbs, vegetables and greens can be grown using a hydroponics system. Lettuces, tomatoes, cucumbers, spinach and much more can offer decent yields, with no messy soil or the need for a full outside garden, and they can be grown all year round. While the systems themselves range from larger hydroponic growing systems, to smaller ones for those that take up much less space, we found the majority of them to be relatively inexpensive. The great part of being able to grow sprouts, vegetables, fruits and greens indoors using hydroponics is that one is not limited by season or weather and can be harvested more rapidly than traditional gardening. The best part is using non-GMO seeds and growing your own food, you always know exactly what is in the food you are eating and how fresh it is. With the massive amounts of food recalls in recent years due to listeria, salmonella and ecoli, growing your own food is also safer.

Protein Powders: One of the best tips Steve offered in our email communications (although I found them all important) was the need to accumulate protein powders, which in hindsight should have been common sense, but it is something we rarely see addressed when talking about prepping and survival.  We have often linked to freeze dried meat packages, and with the long shelf life, they are still an awesome investment for survival, but when talking about long-term survival, when the possibility of no longer being able to refresh your supply due to food shortages, having a large accumulation of protein powders to simply mix up and drink, is not only imperative but is also an answer for those without a lot of storage space for those large emergency survival food buckets. From organic, plant based, to flavored powders, to gluten free whey powders, to any other number of powders available, one can accumulate enough to last years, or even a decade using a limited amount of space for storage.

Indoor growing: Don't wait until it is too late, learn about indoor growing and start now. Even if nothing ever happens, which is doubtful at this point, to our ability to obtain food, growing your own is healthier, and one knows exactly where it has been and who has touched it!

Freeze Dried Ground Beef BOTTOM LINE - THIS CORONAVIRUS SCARE SHOULD BE A WAKE UP CALL

They could announce a cure for the recent COVID-19, which is what they named the recent Coronavirus, today and we would still consider this whole example of how fast a virus can spread and get out of control, as a huge wake up call. Back in the pioneer days, everyone was a prepper, they grew much of their own foods, baked their own breads and didn't have a grocery store to run over to for food. Today, the majority of the country would not survive if that ability was removed. This wake up call should teach all of us that preparing to protect and prevent from catching a virus, any virus, is just a smart, common sense thing to do, but that also preparing for any type of event that could disrupt our food supply chain, should also be a priority. No one is suggesting going out and spending every penny you have.... but getting a little here, a little there is better than having nothing if SHTF.

Below the Patriot Nurse has some excellent suggestions on staying healthy, not just from this Coronavirus but during cold and flu season. Look to China, at least two cities have banned people from leaving their homes, even to buy groceries, as we hear below from DW, German news.

The 'Wipe Out Humans To Save The Earth' Insanity Now Being Babbled By 'Elite Leftists' Another Hint Coronavirus May Really Be A Depopulation Weapon

- As Flu-Like Illnesses Explode Across America, One Homeless Coronavirus Carrier Could Cause Havoc

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die February 18, 2020

While much of the mainstream media continues to sound like a broken record playing within an echo chamber with the Washington Post joining Foreign Policy, Wikipedia, Fact Check, PolitiFact and numerous others recently putting out stories echoing the same globalist talking point, that this coronavirus outbreak was not caused by a bioweapon or linked to any labs in Wuhan, China and such reports are 'conspiracy theories' or 'disinformation', stories like this new one over at the Daily Mail directly from China and the South China University of Technology beg to differ. As the Daily Mail story reports, following a lengthy study into this coronavirus outbreak, Beijing-sponsored South China University of Technology concluded that 'the killer coronavirus probably originated from a laboratory in Wuhan' while pointing out that research on bats and respiratory diseases carried by the animals at the Wuhan Center for Disease Control and the Wuhan Institute of Virology happened only 300 yards away from the seafood market originally blamed for the outbreak. And with a leading medical journal now reporting this outbreak is highly contagious and much more deadly than originally estimated according to this linked study by the Los Alamos National Laboratory which we've also embedded at the bottom of this story, each of us needs to decide what information we're going to believe and how we're going to prepare for this outbreak, what the mainstream media is reporting or what we're learning from the independent media. And now we learn from Senator Tom Cotton that China is refusing to hand over any evidence or information the US had requested about the Wuhan biolab in question. With Mike Adams reporting in this new story over at Natural News that a pandemic could achieve all of the globalists satanic objectives, including depopulation and the kind of authoritarian government being implemented in China being rolled out in America and across the planet, we learn in this important new Zero Hedge story that even those who've been infected and recover from coronavirus are not safe and in fact, those who become re-infected often die sudden deaths from total heart failure. From Zero Hedge.: Doctors working on the front lines of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak have told the Taiwan Times that it's possible to become reinfected by the virus, leading to death from sudden heart failure in some cases. "It’s highly possible to get infected a second time. A few people recovered from the first time by their own immune system, but the meds they use are damaging their heart tissue, and when they get it the second time, the antibody doesn’t help but makes it worse, and they die a sudden death from heart failure," reads a message forwarded to Taiwan News from a relative of one of the doctors living in the United Kingdom. The source also said the virus has “outsmarted all of us,” as it can hide symptoms for up to 24 days. This assertion has been made independently elsewhere, with Chinese pulmonologist Zhong Nanshan (鍾南山) saying the average incubation period is three days, but it can take as little as one day and up to 24 days to develop symptoms. Also, the source said that false negative tests for the virus are fairly common. It can fool the test kit there were cases that they found, the CT scan shows both lungs are fully infected but the test came back negative four times. The fifth test came back positive. -Taiwan Times So when we read stories about people coming back from China who are testing negative, that doesn't really mean that they really are negative for coronavirus and as has been reported again and again, those who aren't even showing symptoms can still spread the virus to others. And with a locust plague like 'something out of the Book of Exodus' devouring entire farms in Kenya within as little as 30 seconds, it's easy to understand why some warn it feels like we're moving towards the 'end times' as Michael Snyder reports in this Charisma News story.

(ANP FUNDRAISER! Following Susan Duclos' heart attacks and hospitalization, All News Pipeline will need some financial help in the months ahead. So if you like stories like this, please consider donating to ANP to help keep us in this 'Info-war' for America at a time of systematic censorship and widespread corruption.) As has been reported previously, coronavirus presents to many with very few symptoms, with a sore throat the only symptom one carrier of the virus was showing according to the CDC who has warned the disease can be spread by those who show no symptoms at all, so the map we see above from the Flu Near You website gives us another very good reason to avoid the big cities across America if possible where among the large homeless population should it arrive, it could spread like wildfire.  With many of the large clusters of those reporting either flu-like symptoms or any symptoms at all this very moment near the large East-coast megalopolis that stretches from Washington DC north towards New York and Boston, concerning is this Los Angeles Times story which reports coronavirus is spreading as readily as the 1918 Spanish flu, an outbreak which ended up killing between 20 and 50 million after infecting 1/3 of the world's population. Even this story over at The Atlantic had reported that Medeival diseases are now running rampant among the homeless in the big cities of California, diseases such as typhus and tuberculosis, so imagine just one carrier of coronavirus getting loose in one of the massive homeless encampment's in San Francisco or Los Angeles or even here on the East coast in Baltimore, Atlanta, New York city or even Washington DC. And as we see in the map below from the CDC's flu tracker website, so called 'influenza-like illnesses' are in the high range all across America right now with only a few states in moderate to low yet with coronavirus presenting with a full range of different symptoms that are very similar to the flu, it's understandable that hospitals in 5 different US cities are testing people for coronavirus if they show up with flu-like symptoms. Those cities are Seattle, San Francisco, Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles. Yet with many 'false negatives' coming back in tests of people who had coronavirus as we previously mentioned had been reported in this Zero Hedge story, all bets are off about how far it has already spread in America with some not showing symptoms for up to 24 days. As we had mentioned within our opening segment, Mike Adams points out in this must-read story as also heard in the final video at the bottom of this story just how 'fortuitous' this coronavirus outbreak could be for the globalists, allowing them to 'kill many birds with one stone'. While the globalists depopulation agenda has long been called 'conspiracy theory', how many other leftists think just like Cambridge Professor Patricia MacCormack who just wrote a book about how 'only human extinction can save the planet'? Actually writing in her book that the only answer to 'climate change' would be for the human race to be wiped out, calls for MacCormack to be the first to volunteer for that honor have gone unanswered. Yet as Mike Adams points out in this story, such a sinister plan may be coming together perfectly for the globalists. If the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) pandemic began from an “accidental” release, it sure was a happy accident for the globalists. Everything the pandemic is achieving just happens to perfectly fit the top priorities of the globalist agenda. Consider the following:

– The coronavirus pandemic is currently on track to infect 60% – 80% of the world population and kill up to 15% of those infected, according to an increasing number of doctors and scientists. Conservatively, this could kill up to half a billion people (500 million people), which would go a long way toward accomplishing the globalist goal of depopulation.

The pandemic allows governments to declare medical martial law, with gunpoint-enforced quarantines, mandatory vaccinations and government kidnapping of children from parents who refuse to go along with the medical tyranny. It’s a dream come true for the CDC and the vaccine industry.

– Simultaneously, the pandemic also allows Big Tech to justify total censorship and de-platforming of “anti-vaxxers,” who will of course be immediately blamed for every infection and every death, as soon as a commercial vaccine is available.

Make no mistake, this CoVid-19 Wuhan coronavirus outbreak is almost the perfect weapon against humanity that keeps the globalists in power and even increases their tyranny on a global scale.

It’s almost as if — dare we say — the virus was intelligently designed with these goals in mind…

Also mentioning within his story the possibility of coronavirus being used to both crash the US economy as well as used to defeat President Trump in November, would you put it past them to do such evil things?

Washington State Monitoring 712 People for Coronavirus Symptoms

By Zachary Stieber February 18, 2020 Updated: February 18, 2020

Hundreds of people in Washington state are under public health supervision for the novel coronavirus, state officials said on Feb. 17. The 712 people being monitored are at risk of having been exposed to the virus, the Washington State Department of Health said. “The number of people under public health supervision includes those at risk of having been exposed to Novel Coronavirus who are monitoring their health under the supervision of public health officials. This number includes close contacts of laboratory-confirmed cases, as well as people who have returned from China in the past 14 days and are included in federal quarantine guidance,” the department said in an update on its website. The first confirmed case of the COVID-19 virus in the United States was in Washington; the Snohomish County man was treated and has been released from the hospital. Twenty-four others have tested negative for the virus. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, close contact means being within about six feet of a person who has the virus for a prolonged period of time. Close contact can also mean direct contact with secretions from a person with a confirmed case.

While hundreds are being monitored in the state, there are no persons under investigation (PUIs), the department said. A person under investigation is an ill patient who might have the new coronavirus. Because there are no PUIs, there are no pending test results. Still, testing for the virus is occurring in Seattle, one of five major cities where people who show flu-like symptoms will be tested for the new virus if they test negative for the flu. “This is an extra layer of our response that will help us detect if and when this virus is spreading in the community,” Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said last week. “All of our efforts now are to prevent the sustained spread of the virus in our community, but we need to be prepared for the possibility that it will spread.” Coronaviruses typically circulate among animals but can, in rare cases, jump from animals to humans before starting to spread from person to person. Some viruses are man-made. Officials in China or at agencies elsewhere have not confirmed the origins of the new virus, and the World Health Organization has left open the possibility of the virus not originating with an animal. Coronaviruses spread to humans through the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes, through close personal contact, and through touching an object or surface with the virus on it and then touching the mouth, nose, or eyes. A fourth way, which occurs rarely, is fecal contamination. Symptoms of the new virus are similar to symptoms of the flu and include fever, coughing, and a headache. Other symptoms, such as confusion, have also been reported in some cases. Experts recommend washing hands often as a way to stave off infection. People should also not touch their eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands; avoid close contact with people who are sick; and clean and disinfect objects and surfaces. If people are feeling sick, they should self-isolate at home. Sick people are also asked to use a tissue when they cough or sneeze and throw the tissue in the trash before washing their hands. And they should wear masks if they are going out in public, such as going to a doctor. There are no known treatments for the new virus, and no vaccine. While some people who became infected with the new virus have recovered, it has also killed hundreds of people, primarily in China. The virus emerged in Wuhan, China, in December 2019.

COMPLETE LOCKDOWN OF WUHAN CHINA; NO ONE ALLOWED OUT OF HOUSE -- NOT EVEN TO BUY FOOD OR WATER

Nation News Desk 18 February 2020

Yesterday, February 17, Drone robots began going door-to-door in Wuhan informing residents via audio recordings they are no longer allowed out of their homes FOR ANY REASON; not even to buy food once a week, until further notice. We have video of the Drone making the announcement, below. It seems the outbreak has gotten so terrible, that the government of China is now willing to let the citizens of Wuhan literally starve or dehydrate TO DEATH. That this is happening in China, just 6 weeks into their outbreak, necessarily means it can happen here in America as well. Will YOU be one of those who starve or dehydrate to death? Prepare now using the links below. Here is the video, with English language translation: What the Chinese have done is unprecedented in human history. They have literally enacted "cordon sanitaire" for whole cities totally at least 760+ million people. Cordon sanitiare is what they did during medieval times when the Black Plague hit Europe. In those cases, first they locked up potentially infected family together in their homes for a period, which all but guaranteed death as each in succumb to illness and ultimately could not feed themselves and ran out of water. Dehydration kills most. Then they realized the disease was coming in due to trade, so they would hunt down merchants and barbaric violence occurred. The cities were walled and under guard so there was no foot traffic or carts in and out of the city. Watch the Tudors TV series and during such a plague, Henry the VIII fled to a small fortification with some soldiers until the disease burned out.

In postmodern times with Ebola, soldiers cordoned off the sick or possibly infected, and so these folks would often die from an inability to get to the village well and so would die from dehydration. China has a horrendous issue with the city water being polluted and contaminated with likely pathogens, so no one drinks it, but buys drinking water. Now they are not allowed to leave their homes, so dehydration will cause desperation and some will drink the water and get sick. You will have crews who later incinerate the dead, but that will collapse due to logistics, and so mass graves. Hardly a nothing burger. See, America may have lousy tap water, but despite tasting bad, people can survive on it. And so as long as they have supplies, even if the supply chain goes down and people are unemployed, then this is likely survivable. But in 12-14 days, all city water utilities will run out of chlorine, so the supply chain issues will catch up then. Imagine 320 million on city water of some kind all trying simultaneously trying to acquire chlorine. That is first obstacle to overcome. If I were a strategic planner, that would be my primary goal and then ensuring coal to electric plants and that natural gas is readily available as I believe 35% of electric generation is through natural gas. In a month, we would see pharmaceutical supply to chronic patients about 43% of Americans) begin to falter. Then issues with heart and respiratory problems as their conditions are not being mitigated. Some diabetics will run of insulin. Anyone with mood altering drugs will start acting squirrelly. Riots will break out as if people are EBT cards, they may not be able to resupply groceries plus just ordinary folks can't source groceries either. But the former likely won't have freezers or pantries so they will be in bad shape.

Coronavirus: Largest study suggests elderly and sick are most at risk

18 February 2020

Health officials in China have published the first details of more than 44,000 cases of Covid-19, in the biggest study since the outbreak began. Data from the Chinese Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CCDC) finds that more than 80% of the cases have been mild, with the sick and elderly most at risk. The research also points to the high risk to medical staff. A hospital director in the city of Wuhan died from the virus on Tuesday. Liu Zhiming, 51, was the director of the Wuchang Hospital in Wuhan - one of the leading hospitals in the virus epicentre. He is one of the most senior health officials to die so far. Hubei, whose capital is Wuhan, is the worst affected province in the country. The report by the CCDC shows the province's death rate is 2.9% compared with 0.4% in the rest of the country.

The findings put the overall death rate of the Covid-19 virus at 2.3%. China's latest official figures released on Tuesday put the overall death toll at 1,868 and 72,436 infections.

Why Singapore is so vulnerable to virus spread

Officials reported 98 new deaths and 1,886 new cases in the past day, with 93 of those deaths and 1,807 infections in Hubei province - the epicentre of the outbreak. More than 12,000 people have recovered, according to Chinese authorities. What does the study tell us? The paper by the CCDC, released on Monday and published in the Chinese Journal of Epidemiology, looked at more than 44,000 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in China as of 11 February. While the results largely confirm previous descriptions of the virus and patterns of infection, the study includes a detailed breakdown of the 44,672 confirmed cases across all of China. It finds that 80.9% of infections are classified as mild, 13.8% as severe and only 4.7% as critical. The number of deaths among those infected, known as the fatality rate, remains low but rises among those over 80 years old. Coronavirus fatality rate in China Source: Chinese Centre for Disease Control Looking at the sex ratio, men are more likely to die (2.8%) than women (1.7%). The study also identifies which existing illnesses put patients at risk. It puts cardiovascular disease at number one, followed by diabetes, chronic respiratory disease and hypertension. Pointing out the risk to medical staff, the paper says that a total of 3,019 health workers have been infected, 1,716 of which were confirmed cases. Five had died by 11 February, which was the last day of data included in the research. On 13 February, China broadened its definition of how to diagnose people, including "clinically diagnosed cases" which previously were counted separate from "confirmed cases". This is by far the most detailed study of the coronavirus outbreak within China. It gives us incredible insight into what is happening, but the picture is far from complete. You can study only the cases you find, and other scientists have estimated there could be 10 times as many people infected as are ending up in the official statistics. That means the overall death rate is likely to be lower than the one reported in this study. The report also suggests the outbreak peaked in late January, but it is too soon to know for sure. What this analysis clearly describes is a "highly contagious" virus that spreads "extremely rapidly" even in the face of an "extreme response" by China. That should be a warning to the rest of the world. What does it say about the future? Looking forward, the paper finds that "the epidemic curve of onset of symptoms" peaked around 23-26 January before declining up to 11 February. What are the symptoms? 'No change' in virus outbreak despite China spike Apple warns coronavirus will hurt iPhone supplies The study suggests that the downward trend in the overall epidemic curve could mean that "isolation of whole cities, broadcast of critical information (e.g., promoting hand washing, mask wearing, and care seeking) with high frequency through multiple channels, and mobilization of a multi-sector rapid response teams is helping to curb the epidemic".

But the authors also warn that with many people returning from a long holiday, the country "needs to prepare for the possible rebound of the epidemic". China's response to the virus has seen the lockdown of Wuhan - the largest city in Hubei - and the rest of the province as well as severe travel restrictions on movements across the country. What's happening with the cruise ships? The virus has spread beyond mainland China to countries around the globe and two cruise ships are now confirmed to have been affected. The Diamond Princess was quarantined in the Japanese port of Yokohama on 3 February, after a man from Hong Kong tested positive. More than 450 of the 3,700 people on board have since become infected. The US has begun evacuating its citizens from the vessel. On Tuesday South Korea joined the list of the countries and territories also planning to get their residents out which already includes Canada, Australia, the UK, Israel and Hong Kong. A second ship, the MS Westerdam, was turned away by multiple ports around Asia over fears it could be carrying the virus. It was finally cleared to dock in Sihanoukville, Cambodia, after no cases were found on board. Disembarking passengers were personally welcomed by Prime Minister Hun Sen. No one was quarantined. However, days later, a woman who had been on the ship tested positive after arriving in Malaysia. Huge efforts are now being made to track down the passengers, who have moved on to many different countries including Malaysia and Thailand, but also further afield to the US and Canada.

Several countries have said they will not admit foreign visitors who were on the ship.

There are still 255 guests and 747 crew on board the MS Westerdam, while more than 400 passengers have been sent to a hotel in the Cambodian capital, Phnom Penh, to await test results.

Is Chinese Coronavirus Tyranny the Blueprint for America?

Plus other coronavirus updates. Pentagon approves quarantining Americans against their will on military bases amid Corona virus outbreak The Pentagon has approved quarantine camps, a.k.a. death camps, in the United States, to house American detainees suspected of being infected with the 2019-nCov Coronavirus or merely coming in contact with someone who was. However, the camps are not limited to people who have traveled from overseas as most media outlets make it out to be. One report from CBS Sacramento reveals how the military will be snatching and grabbing regular everyday citizens off the streets. The real truth of the matter is that just like in China when the camps become full or overwhelmed many people in them start dying. In fact, the Chinese military had to build motes around the camps in an effort to detour detainees from escaping. Keep in mind, wargaming such a scenario, one could simply be eating lunch at their favorite fast food place sometime in the near future when the military arrives and grabs everyone inside after an infected person was reported to have entered the establishment. Detainees would then be taken to a camp where if not infected already they will likely then become infected. Especially, being packed in with other sick and unruly people, anything could happen. A good example of this is how people have been quarantined on cruise ships where the virus just keeps spreading adding to the number of infections until nobody is left.

Deception and the Bible

By Hal Lindsey

In Matthew 24, when Jesus taught about the end of the age, He began with a stark warning. “See to it that no one misleads you.” (Matthew 24:4 NASB) Deception has been a primary part of human character since Adam and Eve sinned. But it is worse today. That’s partly because evil people tend to become more evil over time. 2 Timothy 3:13 says, “But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.” (NKJV) The other thing that makes deception worse today isn’t about human character, but the technology that amplifies human character — whether good or bad.  Today, we think of radio and television as old communications media. But in the sweep of history, they’re new. In fact, the development of the printing press is a relatively new event in the overall human experience. Think about how much the ability to deceive grew with each of these advances. Mass producing printed material instead of copying documents one at a time, took deception to a whole new level. The telegraph made communication instantaneous across vast distances. The completion of the transatlantic cable in 1858 made that communication available from one continent to another, changing the world in a fundamental way. After that, came the telephone, allowing people to speak and be heard from one side of the world to the other. Radio and television allowed a few people to talk to the masses, and without a connecting wire — creating another communications revolution. With the advent of the internet, it all changed again. Today, a television program can be created, edited, and made available to the world using one, pocket-sized device — a smartphone. Social media found a way to harness the power of the internet for the masses. These tools did good things, but they also threw rocket fuel on the fires of deception. And since deceiving is a deeply ingrained part of humanity, that spells trouble. From “fake news” websites to the mainstream media, technology amplifies lying to a whole new level. Jesus showed the human condition without Him in John 8:42 and 44. After some ultra-religious types told Jesus that they were children of God, He answered, “If God were your Father, you would love Me.… You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature; for he is a liar, and the father of lies.” (NASB) The devil and deception go hand in hand. Satan is at war with God. And in any military campaign, armies try to destroy their enemy’s command and control. For Christians and the Church, God’s command and control comes primarily from the Bible. It makes sense then that the devil works to diminish God’s word at every turn. In an age of deception, expect the Bible to be attacked in every way possible. One of Satan’s most successful ploys against the Bible has been to make Bible-reading subjective instead of objective. In churches, seminaries, Sunday Schools, and Bible study groups across the land, people are being taught to read into the Bible their own feelings and prejudices. Many Bible teachers don’t teach. Instead, they ask questions. They read a scripture, then ask, “How does this make you feel?” or, “What does this mean to you?” But in reading anything, the first question should always be, “What meaning did the author intend?” If we give other authors that consideration, shouldn’t we extend the same courtesy to God? The Bible will address your feelings, and it will give you feelings. But that’s not how we interpret it. We primarily interpret the Bible by reading the words, and studying the context. But you will never understand it unless you choose to make God’s thoughts paramount. He is God, after all. Psalms 100:3 says, “It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves.” (NASB) Hebrews 1:1-2 says, “God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son.” (NKJV) It’s an amazing thing to realize that “God… has… spoken.” Speaking is a means of imparting one person’s thoughts to another. The Bible is God’s word. It imparts the very thoughts of God to human beings like you and me. What a privilege! Today, many see the Church as an institution whose primary function is to make people feel good. It follows that they try to limit the Bible to this same role. But that totally misses the point. We have the honor of bringing into our minds the very thoughts of God. Should we relegate those thoughts to self-help, or self-esteem building? Psalms 107:20 says, “He sent His word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.” (KJV) People around the world are starving for the healing and deliverance of His word. And in a sea of babbling voices, they’re also starving for truth — not touchy-feely stuff — but built-upon-the-rock truth. And in the Bible, we have it.

Let’s use the powerful communications tools of today to export God’s unadulterated word across the world.

Big Brother Goes Global

by Hal Lindsey

On September 25th, Pope Francis gave an address to the United Nations General Assembly. In it, he presented a list of what he called UN accomplishments. Then he said, “Without all those interventions on the international level, mankind would not have been able to survive.” It was a bizarre moment to hear this man, famous for his faith, praising the UN as mankind’s savior over the last 70 years. Because he sees the UN in such a lofty role, it’s only natural that he wants to give it more power — even to the point of world governance. He said, “The experience of these seventy years since the founding of the United Nations in general, and in particular the experience of these first fifteen years of the third millennium, reveal both the effectiveness of the full application of international norms and the ineffectiveness of their lack of enforcement.” In other words, he sees the UN as highly effective, except where it has lacked the ability to enforce its will. The implication is obvious. He believes the UN should be given the teeth to enforce its edicts on everyone. People sometimes see the United Nations for what it should be, and forget what it is. It has two power centers. The weaker of those two is the General Assembly where third-world nations hold sway. In general, those countries tend to be anti-American and anti-Semitic. But the most powerful part of the UN is its Security Council — especially the five permanent members, each of which has full veto power. Two of the five, Russia and China, have no freedom of the press, little freedom of religion, and a high disregard for human rights in general. On paper, the UN sounds like a noble idea. But in reality, it is a hot mess. And now, Pope Francis and others want to give that hot mess, power over all our lives. With the skillful use of public relations, they have engendered a worldwide fear of global warming. The UN has used this “problem” to uniquely situate itself on the world stage. It is now poised for the greatest power grab in history. That power grab is called “The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.” In his UN speech, Francis called the 2030 Agenda “an important sign of hope.” We don’t know the extent to which the nations of the earth will actually comply with the 2030 Agenda. But all 193 member states of the General Assembly voted for it. We also know that every nation in the world is at least giving lip-service to the proposal. Simply put, the 2030 Agenda is a plan to completely rearrange the power structure of Planet Earth between now and the year 2030. That’s just fifteen years. This is huge! There are various estimates on the 2030 Agenda’s cost, but it will probably be between 5 and 7 trillion dollars per year. That’s double the entire annual budget of the United States government. That’s almost half of the annual Gross Domestic Product of the United States. Over the 15 years of the 2030 Agenda, we’re talking about a hundred trillion dollars. If money is power — and it is — imagine putting that kind of power in the hands of one of the most corrupt and hypocritical organizations in history. The UN describes Agenda 2030 in utopian terms. “We are determined to take the bold and transformative steps which are urgently needed to shift the world onto a sustainable and resilient path. As we embark on this collective journey, we pledge that no one will be left behind.” “No one will be left behind” means “No one will be able to opt out.” The 2030 Agenda is a plan for every man, woman, and child on the face of the earth, like it or not. The Agenda consists of 17 items. Let’s look at a couple of them. Number 1 says, “End poverty in all its forms everywhere.” This goal is something like a mirage in the desert. It looks like water, but it’s just sand. The UN can chase this objective all the way to an economic takeover of the entire world, and the poor will still be with us. But to those who want to run the world, failure to achieve the stated goal won’t matter. To them it only matters that they will have taken Planet Earth another step closer to world government. Item Number 10 says, “Reduce inequality within and among countries.” This contains two huge, but very different ideas rolled into one. Reducing inequality “within” countries, puts the UN at the doorstep of local businesses, schools, and governments — all in an effort to redistribute wealth. It might well become an excuse to raid private bank accounts and confiscate property. Reducing inequality “among countries,” puts the UN in charge of an even bigger wealth redistribution scheme — that of nations. The people behind this do not believe a decent standard of living is “sustainable.” Therefore, equality “within and among countries” cannot mean prosperity for all. It means prosperity for no one… except an elite ruling class. Some will say that it’s all a pipedream, that the UN has no chance of meeting these goals. But meeting the goals will not be the problem. The problem will come from the havoc wreaked by the pursuit of those goals. I have said this before, but I am charged by the LORD to say it repeatedly. We must continue to believe one of Gods most solemn promises that He made right after destroying mankind by water, “… I will never again curse the ground on account of man … and I will never again destroy every living thing, as I have done. While the earth remains, Seedtime and Harvest, And Cold and Heat, And Summer and Winter, And Day and Night, SHALL NOT CEASE.” (Genesis 8:21b-22 NASB) Believe what the LORD promised. Global warming destroying the earth is a lie of Satan to give a reason for man to set up a one-world-government so that the “elite” can rule it. God is coming soon to take out His own. Keep trusting in Him.

Tehran-backed Hezbollah steps in to guide Iraqi militias in Soleimani's wake

(Reuters) - Shortly after Iranian Major General Qassem Soleimani was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Iraq, the Tehran-backed Lebanese organization Hezbollah urgently met with Iraqi militia leaders, seeking to unite them in the face of a huge void left by their powerful mentor’s death, two sources with knowledge of the meetings told Reuters. The meetings were meant to coordinate the political efforts of Iraq’s often-fractious militias, which lost not only Soleimani but also Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, a unifying Iraqi paramilitary commander, in the Jan. 3 attack at Baghdad airport, the sources said. While offering few details, two additional sources in a pro-Iran regional alliance confirmed that Hezbollah, which is sanctioned as a terrorist group by the United States, has stepped in to help fill the void left by Soleimani in guiding the militias. All sources in this article spoke on condition of anonymity to address sensitive political activities rarely addressed in public. Officials with the governments of Iraq and Iran did not respond to requests for comment, nor did a spokesperson for the militia groups. The discussions shed light on how Iran and its allied groups are trying to cement control in the unstable Middle East, especially in the wake of the devastating U.S. attack on a revered Iranian military leader.  The Tehran-backed militias are critical to Iran’s efforts to maintain control over Iraq, where the U.S. still maintains some 5,000 troops. The country has experienced years of civil war since U.S. forces toppled Saddam Hussein and more recently, the government - and the militias - have faced growing protests against Iran’s influence in the country. Iran helped found some Iraqi militia groups. In the months ahead of his death, Soleimani had waded ever deeper into the Iraq crisis, holding meetings with the Iraqi militias in Baghdad as Tehran sought to defend its allies and interests in its power struggle with the United States, one of the two Iraqi sources said. Hezbollah’s involvement marks an expansion of its role in the region. The Shi’ite group, founded by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards in 1982, has been at the heart of Iran’s regional strategy for years, helping Soleimani to train paramilitary groups in both Iraq and Syria. One pro-Iran regional official said Hezbollah’s guidance of the militias would continue until the new leadership in the Quds Force – a unit of the Revolutionary Guards led by Soleimani since 1998 – gets a handle on the political crisis in Iraq. The meetings between Hezbollah and Iraqi militia leaders began in January, just days after Soleimani’s assassination, the two Iraqi sources said. Reuters couldn’t confirm the number of meetings or where they took place. One source said they were in Beirut and the other said they were either in Lebanon or Iran. Sheikh Mohammad al-Kawtharani, the Hezbollah representative in Iraq who worked closely with Soleimani for years to guide the Iraqi militias, hosted the meetings, the Iraqi sources said. Kawtharani picked up where Soleimani left off, the Iraqi sources said. The sources said Kawtharani berated the groups, as Soleimani had done in one of his final meetings with them, for failing to come up with a unified plan to contain popular protests against the Baghdad government and the paramilitaries that dominate it. The government and militia groups have killed hundreds of protesters but not managed to contain the rebellion.

Kawatharani also urged a united front in picking a new Iraqi prime minister, the Iraqi sources said. Since then, former Iraqi communications minister Mohammed Tawfiq Allawi has been named - a development welcomed by Iran and accepted by the militia-linked parties it backs but opposed by protesters. BIG SHOES TO FILL For now, Kawtharani is seen as the most suitable figure to direct Iraqi militias until a permanent Iranian successor can be chosen, although he possesses nowhere near Soleimani’s clout and charisma, according to the two Iraqi sources and a senior Iraqi Shi’ite Muslim leader. “Kawtharani has connections with the militia groups,” the Shi’ite leader said, noting that he was born in Najaf, lived in Iraq for decades and speaks Iraqi dialect. “He was trusted by Soleimani, who used to depend and call on him to help him in crises and in meetings in Baghdad.” One of the Iraqi sources close to the militias said that Kawtharani also met with the Iraqi populist cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, a powerful but unpredictable figure, to convince him to support the new Iraqi prime minister. As Reuters has reported, Sadr has given Allawi his support. Kawtharani will face serious - perhaps insurmountable- challenges in filling the shoes of the leaders killed in the drone attack, the Iraqi sources close to the militias told Reuters. “A lot of faction leaders see themselves as too big and important to take orders from “ one Iraqi source said. “For now, because of pressure from Iran, they’re cooperating with him, but I doubt that will continue and the Iranians know that.” One of the pro-Iran sources, a military commander, said Hezbollah’s involvement would consist of political guidance but stop short of providing manpower and materiel to retaliate for the Solemani killing. The militias “do not need Hezbollah’s intervention because they have the strength in numbers, combat experience and firepower,” the commander said. Those groups are difficult to control while Hezbollah is seen as more disciplined. But like the rest of Iran’s network, Hezbollah risks stretching itself thin, a senior U.S. official in the region and an Iraqi political leader said. In recent years, Hezbollah’s role has grown considerably. It has fought in support of President Bashar Al-Assad in Syria and extended political support to the Iran-allied Houthis of Yemen in their war with a Saudi-led military alliance. Iran is likely to rely partly on the clout Nasrallah, a figure who commands deep respect among Iran’s allies across the region, the U.S. official said. Nasrallah is seen as overseeing Kawtharani’s efforts, according to a senior Shi’ite Iraqi leader. “I think ideologically, religiously, he’s seen as a charismatic figure to many of the Iraqi Shia militias,” the U.S. official said, requesting anonymity because he was not authorized to speak on the record. In two lengthy televised addresses, Nasrallah has paid homage to Soleimani and vowed to avenge his death. He has also declared it a goal of Hezbollah and its allies to eject U.S. forces from the region once and for all. U.S. forces have been in Iraq since 2014 as part of a coalition fighting against Islamic State. If the Iraqi militias have their way, sources close to them say, these troops will be the first to depart. Editing by Julie Marquis

Pregnant woman and baby among 30 killed, burned to death by Boko Haram

By Samuel Smith, CP Reporter

Boko Haram militants are suspected to have burned and killed no less than 30 people and abducted others Sunday night as the extremist faction continues to terrorize northeast Nigeria and the Lake Chad region. A spokesperson for Borno Gov. Babagana Umara Zulum told CNN that at least 30 people, including a pregnant woman and her baby, are now dead after suspected Boko Haram militants set sleeping travelers on fire in the Auno village of the Borno state. The travelers were camping out in the village for the night as they missed a 5 p.m. curfew in the state capital of Maiduguri, about 10 miles away. Sources reported to Vanguard that while most counts say that at least 30 have died, the death toll could be as high as 40. That would include the death of six militants. According to the state government, militants burned 18 vehicles. Some of the destroyed vehicles included trucks loaded up with food to be taken to the markets the following day. State government spokesman Ahmad Abdurrahman Bundi told AFP that militants stormed Auno village with trucks and mounted weapons. The militants killed, looted and burned. Village resident Shehu Tanko told CNN that the bodies of the pregnant woman and her baby were among the corpses recovered. "They burn everywhere. The fire was still on till this morning,” Tanko explained. “We are still looking for many people around here."  A source told Vanguard that the pregnant woman was likely raped before she was burned to death and that the baby’s head was crushed. Boko Haram is an Islamic militant insurgency responsible for killing tens of thousands and displacing millions in the last decade-plus. The terrorist group pledged allegiance to the Islamic State in 2016 but soon splintered after Islamic State leadership tried to replace Boko Haram’s leader, Abubakar Shekau. Although the Nigerian government claims to have defeated Boko Haram militarily, Boko Haram and its offshoot Islamic State West Africa Province continue to carry out attacks in Borno. “We have to be brutal in telling the truth. I am pushed to the wall to say the truth. Since I was inaugurated as governor of Borno State, Boko Haram has attacked Auno six times,” Zulum said in a statement, according to Vanguard. “Another thing is that the military has been withdrawn from Auno town. I am not undermining the capacity of the military but we have made repeated appeals for the military to establish their unit in Auno.” Gov. Zulum recently gave a guest lecture at the National Defence College in Abuja in which he detailed the challenges of the Boko Haram insurgency in the Borno state. Zulum alleged that the insurgency is responsible for making 59,311 orphans and 59,213 widows. Boko Haram over the years has abducted hundreds of school girls. The group has also abducted pastors and others in attempts to raise funds through ransom payments. Last month, Boko Haram executed Rev. Lawan Andimi, chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria’s chapter in the Michika Local Government Area of Adamawa State. Andimi was kidnapped in early January and was seen in a ransom video praising God before his death. Also in January, the Islamic State released a propaganda video purporting to show the killing of a Nigerian Christian university student by a child soldier. In December, the Islamic State faction claimed to have killed 11 Christian aid workers in Nigeria in retaliation for the killing of Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. In a statement Monday, Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari declared that the Nigerian government is “combating frontally the dreadful activities of terrorist groups like Boko Haram and the so-called Islamic State.” Buhari and his administration have faced international scrutiny over their inability to thwart extremist attacks by Boko Haram, ISWAP and radical Fulani herdsmen in the country’s Middle Belt. Last December, the U.S. State Department listed Nigeria for the first time on its special watch list for countries that engage or tolerate severe religious freedom violations. Nigeria was placed on the list because of the “lack of effective government response” to increasing violence. Follow Samuel Smith on Twitter: @IamSamSmith or Facebook: SamuelSmithCP

Armed robbers steal hundreds of rolls of toilet paper amid Hong Kong coronavirus panic

By Yaron Steinbuch February 17, 2020 | 6:32am | Updated

Armed robbers in Hong Kong held up a delivery driver Monday, wiping him clean of hundreds of rolls of toilet paper in a city facing acute shortages amid the coronavirus outbreak, according to reports.  “A deliveryman was threatened by three knife-wielding men who took toilet paper worth more than HK$1,000 ($130),” a police spokesman told Agence France-Presse. Two suspects were later collared and the missing rolls recovered, though it was not immediately clear if they were involved in the TP caper outside a supermarket in the Mong Kok district, a police source told AFP. Video broadcast by Now TV showed investigators milling around crates of toilet paper outside the Wellcome Supermarket in the district, which has a history of “triad” crime gangs. Toilet rolls have become a hot commodity, with stores struggling to keep them in stock as residents make runs to clean them off the shelves during panic-buying sprees. One woman passing by the scene of the heist told local TV station iCable that “I’d steal faces masks, but no toilet roll,” according to AFP. Authorities in the financial hub — where there have been 58 confirmed cases of COVID-19, the official name of the illness – insist that the supply of household goods and foods remain stable, though face masks have been hard to come by. And yet, images shared online have shown people hoarding toilet paper rolls in their tiny apartments – prompting officials to warn that they could develop mold in the humid climate. The supermarket chain denounced the “senseless” robbery and called on residents not to buy toilet paper in bulk. “We want to emphasize that we have sufficient toilet roll supply to meet demand,” Wellcome said in a statement. “The temporary shortage was caused by the sudden and unusual surge in demand.”

Dozens killed in church attack in Burkina Faso

Local pastor among 24 dead as armed men target Protestant church in Yagha province as religious attacks continue.

17 Feb 2020

At least 24 people were killed after unidentified gunmen attacked a church in northern Burkina Faso, officials said on Monday, in the latest assault against places of worship in the West African nation.  The attack took place on Sunday during a weekly service at a Protestant church in the village of Pansi in Yagha, a volatile province near the border with Niger. A group of "armed terrorists attacked the peaceful local population after having identified them and separated them from non-residents", Colonel Salfo Kabore, the regional governor, told AFP news agency. "The provisional toll is 24 killed, including the pastor... 18 wounded and individuals who were kidnapped," he added. A resident of the nearby town of Sebba said Pansi villagers fled there for safety. "It hurt me when I saw the people," Sihanri Osangola Brigadie, the mayor of Boundore commune, told The Associated Press news agency after visiting victims in the hospital in Dori town, 180km (110 miles) from the attack. The attackers looted oil and rice from shops and forced three youth they kidnapped to help transport it on their motorbikes, he said. 'Alarming rate' Christians and churches have become frequent targets in the north of the country. Last week, also in Yagha province, a retired pastor was killed and another pastor abducted by gunmen, according to an internal security report for aid workers. Violence has dramatically escalated in the once-peaceful West African nation. Analysts are concerned that attacks against civilians, including Christians, are increasing "at an alarming rate". "Perpetrators use victims' links to government or their faith to justify the killings, while others appear to be reprisal killings for killings by the government security forces," Corinne Dufka, West Africa director for Human Rights Watch, said. More than 1,300 civilians were killed in targeted attacks last year in Burkina Faso, more than seven times the previous year, according to Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project, which collects and analyses conflict information. The insecurity has created a humanitarian crisis with more than 760,000 people internally displaced, according to the government.

Canadian Scientist At Center Of Chinese Bio-Espionage Probe Found Dead In Africa?

by Tyler Durden Sat, 02

Update (1135ET): It seems that Mr. Plummer made a habit of getting the biological material he was working on "stolen," as we found a report from 2009 in the Winnepeg Free Press that details the theft of 22 vials of biological material was "confirmed by scientific director Dr. Frank Plummer." Plummer, allegedly, alerted authorities to the missing material on the same day a former vaccine researcher was arrested by FBI special agents after U.S. Customs discovered the vials stuffed in a glove in the trunk of his car at the Manitoba-North Dakota border crossing. Some of the vials included genes from the deadly Ebola virus, but local scientists say the material is not infectious. But more than a week after the theft came to light, police said no one from the lab has reported the incident. Plummer has said the researcher signed a form declaring he did not steal anything from the lab and understood he was not allowed to. The national lab does not conduct searches of staff when they exit the lab and does not routinely take inventory of the thousands of vials containing non-infectious biological substances. However, court documents allege the former researcher stole the vials on his last day of work at the virology lab in January because "he did not want to start his research over from the beginning when he entered into his next fellowship" with the National Institutes of Health at the Biodefense Research Laboratory in Maryland. All very curious.

* * *

As GreatGameIndia.com detailed earlier, in a very strange turn of events, renowned scientist Frank Plummer who received Saudi SARS Coronavirus sample and was working on Coronavirus (HIV) vaccine in the Winnipeg based Canadian lab from where the virus was smuggled by Chinese Biowarfare agents and weaponized as revealed in GreatGameIndia investigation, has died in mysterious conditions. According to CBC, Plummer, 67, was in Kenya, where he was a keynote speaker at the annual meeting of the University of Nairobi’s collaborative centre for research and training in HIV/AIDS/STIs. Dr. Larry Gelmon, who helped set up that meeting, said Plummer collapsed and was taken to hospital in Nairobi, where he was pronounced dead on arrival. No confirmed cause of death has yet been released. Plummer was born and raised in Winnipeg, where he headed up Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory for several years. He was also involved in an innovative research partnership between the University of Manitoba and the University of Nairobi, established before the world was very aware of HIV/AIDS. “He helped to identify a lot of the key factors that are involved in HIV transmission in the early days,” said Keith Fowke, a professor in the medical microbiology and infectious diseases department at the University of Manitoba. “He was so hopeful that he was on the path that would end with discovery of the HIV vaccine — the road he had started down almost 30 years ago,” said Plummer’s colleague, Dr. Allan Ronald. What is not mentioned in the CBC report however is that Plummer worked in the same National Microbiology Laboratory (NML) in Winnipeg, Canada from where Chinese Biowarfare agent Xiangguo Qiu and her colleagues smuggled SARS Coronavirus to China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology where it is believed to have been weaponized and leaked. Infact, as GreatGameIndia reported in our exclusive report on Coronavirus Bioweapon, as Scientific Director Frank Plummer was the one who acquired the SARS Coronavirus sample of the Saudi patient at the NML Winnipeg Lab from Ron Fouchier, a leading virologist at the Erasmus Medical Center (EMC) in Rotterdam, the Netherlands who was sent the virus by Egyptian virologist Dr. Ali Mohamed Zaki who isolated and identified a previously unknown type of Coronavirus from the Saudi patient’s lungs.

Fouchier sequenced the virus from a sample sent by Zaki using a broad-spectrum “pan-coronavirus” real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) method to test for distinguishing features of a number of known coronaviruses known to infect humans. This Coronavirus sample arrived at Canada’s NML Winnipeg facility on May 4, 2013 from the Dutch lab received by Frank Plummer. The Canadian lab grew up stocks of the virus and used it to assess diagnostic tests being used in Canada. Winnipeg scientists worked to see which animal species can be infected with the new virus. Research was done in conjunction with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s national lab, the National Centre for Foreign Animal Diseases which is housed in the same complex as the National Microbiology Laboratory. This Winnipeg based Canadian lab was targeted by Chinese agents in what could be termed as Biological Espionage. The viruses was reportedly stolen from the Canadian lab by Chinese Biowarfare agent Xiangguo Qiu and her colleagues and smuggled to none other than the Wuhan Institute of Virology where the virus is believed to be weaponized and leaked. Further, Frank Plummer was also working on HIV vaccine and interesting recently published study be Indian scientists found HIV-like injections in Wuhan Coronavirus – the key that made the jump to people possible. The Indian Scientists came under massive online criticism by Social Media experts and were forced to withdraw their study, in retaliation of which now the Indian authorities have opened an investigation against China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology. Although it should be noted that now China has started using HIV vaccine to cure Coronavirus. Frank Plummer was the key to the entire investigation on the origins of Coronavirus Bioweapon. But will the Canadian government open an investigation into this matter? Unlike their American counterparts who have charged the Chinese Biowarfare agents trying to smuggle deadly viruses from Harvard University, the deatils of the Canadian investigation on the Winnipeg Biological Espionage case is shrouded in secrecy.

Supervolcano in Utah: The Eruption of Wah Wah Springs and 20 Others Ancient Supervolcanoes Discovered Near the Utah-Nevada Border Was 5,000 Times Larger Than the 1980 Mount St. Helens Eruption

By Strange Sounds - Feb 11, 2020

For 30 years, BYU geologists have searched for the volcano that produced thousands of cubic kilometers of pyroclastic flow on the Utah-Nevada border. Piecing together the geologic evidence from five different mountain ranges across hundreds of miles, they report the discovery of a massive 30-million-year-old supervolcano in Utah. Utah-Nevada supervolcanoes near Wah Wah Springs. This map shows locations of at least 20 ancient supervolcanoes in Utah and Nevada. Image credit: Geosphere One of the largest documented supervolcanoes worldwide sits in Utah. And I am pretty sure you didn’t know about it. The ancient caldera, which would have been several miles deep, is no longer visible as it has eroded and filled with pyroclastic flow many years ago. The original Wah Wah Springs pyroclastic deposit associated with this caldera covered an area of ~12,000 square miles and had a volume of 5,900 cubic kilometers or ~1,400 cubic miles. That is 5,000 times the size of the Mount St. Helens eruption that emitted just one cubic kilometer of material. Meanwhile, it seems that a super-eruption is actually overdue. Discovery of the supervolcanoes in Utah-Nevada Brigham Young University geologists found evidence of some of the largest volcanic eruptions in earth’s history right in their own backyard. These supervolcanoes aren’t active today, but 30 million years ago, more than 5,500 cubic kilometers of magma erupted during a one-week period near a place called WahWah Springs. By comparison, this eruption was about 5,000 times larger than the 1980 Mount St. Helens eruption. “In southern Utah, deposits from this single eruption are 13,000 feet thick,” said Eric Christiansen, the lead author for the BYU study. “Imagine the devastation! it would have been catastrophic to anything living within hundreds of miles.“ Wah Wah Springs Supervolcano and 20 others As described in their impressive science paper, the research group found that the Wah Wah Springs eruption buried a vast region extending from central Utah to central Nevada and from Fillmore on the north to Cedar City on the south. They even found traces of ash as far away as Nebraska.

But this wasn’t an isolated event; the BYU geologists found evidence of fifteen super-eruptions and twenty large calderas. Despite their enormous size, the supervolcanoes have been hidden in plain sight for millions of years. The ravages of erosion and later deformation have largely erased them from the landscape. What are supervolcanoes? Supervolcanoes are different from the more familiar stratovolcanoes – like Mount St. Helens – because they aren’t as obvious to the naked eye and they affect enormous areas. Supervolcanoes as we’ve seen are some of earth’s largest volcanic edifices, and yet they don’t stand as high cones. At the heart of a supervolcano instead, is a large collapse. Those collapses in supervolcanoes occur with the eruption and form enormous holes in the ground in plateaus, known as calderas. Not many people know that there are still active supervolcanoes today. Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming is home to one roughly the same size as the Wah Wah Springs caldera, which was about 25 miles across and 3 miles deep when it first formed. [Geosphere, BYU]

Caspian Sea Turns Blood Red in Kazakhstan

By Strange Sounds - Feb 12, 2020

The water and ice along the shore of Aktau, Kazakhstan, have turned blood red, worrying locals. Meanwhile, officials are investigating the strange phenomenon. The water and snow along the Caspian Sea along the beach of Primorsky, Aktau, Kazakhstan turned blood red on February 9, 2020, baffling and frightening local residents. According to local officials, the blood red water is due to at least 25 different types of algae that bloom from January to March. On week ago, black snow fell over another city in Kazakhstan, during a power blizzard that turned the country upside-down. So what behind this biblical red water? Pollution? Algae? Another sign of the End Time? More biblical headlines on Strange Sounds or Steve Quayle. [Lada.kz]

Blue-Green fireball Turns Night Into Day Over Israel and Lebanon (Videos)

February 11, 2020

Israel residents were left baffled when a lager meteor fireball turned night into day.

The blue meteor was so bright it was seen in neighboring Lebanon and Cyprus. Here some videos of the amazing space rock disintegration: Suddenly the whole sky turned vibrant blue. According to the Israeli Astronomical Association, more than 200 skywatchers reported the bright fireball across the three countries. According to the scientists, the object was probably very large and part of it may have fall down to Earth as meteorite.

The Anti-Christ UK Court: Bible Is Incompatible with Human Dignity “Tribulation”

February 12, 2020/StevieRay Hansen/8 Comments

Featured Story

In another sign that Britain has officially entered a post-Christian age of barbarism, a judge in the United Kingdom just ruled that belief in the Bible is “incompatible with human dignity.” In reality, the only reason that “human dignity” exists is that God–the author of the Bible–made man in His image. Without God, there can be no inherent value to human life at all. The crazy case in the U.K. involved a self-proclaimed “transgender” man who wanted his doctor to refer to using objectively incorrect pronouns of the opposite sex. Citing Genesis 1:27, though, which states the fact that God created people male and female, Dr. David Mackereth refused to play along with the delusion. Of course, Romans 1 makes clear that certain truths–the fact that God exists, for instance–are obvious, even without the Bible and divine revelation. The fact that there are men and women is another one of those facts: Nobody needs a Bible to realize that God created people as male and female. Indeed, every strand of DNA testifies to this truth. In his court filings with the Employment Tribunal, Dr. Mackereth said he “holds to the principles of the Great Reformation of the 16th Century including a commitment to the supremacy of the Bible as the infallible, inerrant word of God as his final authority in all matters of faith and practice.”As such, the good doctor argued that authorities discriminated against him and his religious beliefs. However, the court ruled that “belief in Genesis 1:27, lack of belief in transgenderism and conscientious objection to transgenderism in our judgment are incompatible with human dignity.” (Emphasis added) The court also claimed that adhering to one’s belief in the Bible would “conflict with the fundamental rights of others, specifically here, transgender individuals.”And so, unable to play along with the patient’s dangerous and objectively false delusion, Mackereth lost his job at the Department for Work and Pensions. The Christian Legal Center, which represented Mackereth in the legal case, warned that the ruling against the Bible and Christians would have “serious ramifications” for Christian professionals and all others.  “The judgment dictates the language that professionals must use in the workplace,” the Center said, adding that the ruling contradicts scientific reality and will undermine freedom of speech. It was not immediately clear whether doctors might also be forced to play along with the dangerous delusions of bulimics and anorexics–potentially even to the point of being forced to provide liposuction. But that would be just as reasonable, or just as ridiculous, depending on one’s views on truth and reality. Christian Legal Center attorney Michael Phillips noted that this ruling officially excludes Christians from legal protections. It also puts the Bible and Christianity on par with neo-Nazi ideology as far as government is concerned, Phillips added.  Dr. Mackereth promised to appeal the ruling.“I believe that I have to appeal in order to fight for the freedom of Christians to speak the truth,” he said. “If they cannot, then freedom of speech has died in this country, with serious ramifications for the practice of medicine in the UK.  ”No doctor, or researcher, or philosopher, can demonstrate or prove that a person can change sex,” Mackereth added. “Without intellectual and moral integrity, medicine cannot function and my 30 years as a doctor are now considered irrelevant compared to the risk that someone else might be offended.  ”In Sweden, “Justice Ombudsman” authorities investigated the Bible in 2008. They concluded that God’s Word was a violation of Swedish “hate speech” laws, but that it was impractical to ban it at this time. Today, across the United Kingdom and Sweden, two once-great Christian nations, Christians can be and are being literally arrested and jailed for stating the truth about marriage, sexuality, and gender as revealed in Holy Scripture. On the bright side, the Church tends to grow under persecution. God will not be mocked. And Christ is already victorious. Source Jeremiah 30:7 says, “That day is great so that none is like it.” The only time period that fits this description is the period of the Tribulation. This time is unparalleled in history. Jesus described the Tribulation using some of the same imagery as Jeremiah. In Matthew 24:6-8, He stated that the appearance of false Christs, wars, and rumors of wars, famines, and earthquakes are “the beginning of birth pains.” Paul, too, described the Tribulation as birth pains. First Thessalonians 5:3 says, “While people are saying, ‘Peace and safety,’ destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.” This event follows the Rapture and the removal of the Church, in 4:13-18. In 5:9, Paul reemphasizes the absence of the Church from this time period by saying, “For God has not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” The wrath spoken of here is God’s judgment on the unbelieving world and His discipline of Israel during the Tribulation. These “birth pains” are described in detail in Revelation 6-12 Part of the purpose of the Tribulation is to bring Israel back to the Lord.

Torben Søndergaard and his family fled Denmark for America this year like refugees fleeing a war zone, leaving with only what they could carry in eight suitcases. Torben is the founder of The Last Reformation, a worldwide movement that seeks to return Christianity to the Book of Acts. He also began the Jesus Center in Denmark, which trained disciples from 30 nations to spread this message around the world. A Series of Attacks Against Him Attacks against his ministry in Denmark began in 2016 when the Jesus Center was investigated by six different Danish government agencies for everything from food safety to unpaid taxes. Officials found nothing wrong. Then last year, the government began to investigate their family when they began homeschooling. Then they put their daughter back into public school, but that didn’t stop the investigations. But the worst was yet to come. Torben Søndergaard’s life and ministry would take a dramatic turn when Danish TV approached him and said it wanted to profile his ministry. It sounded like it could be very positive. It wasn’t. Danish TV Investigates Him Danish TV not only sent a film crew. Torben says they also sent two undercover reporters, one who said that he wanted to follow Jesus and was even baptized, and another who pretended to be mentally ill. The resulting documentary on national TV, called “God’s Best Children,” lumped Torben in with other so-called “radical Christian” ministries that had had serious moral or ethical failures or even criminal activity. Torben said, “When I saw that I was like, ‘I’m finished. No one will ever trust me again.’” Portrayed as a Liar, Abuser, and a ‘Quack’ Torben watched in horror as he saw himself depicted on national TV as a liar, as an abuser of children and the mentally unstable through healings and so-called “exorcisms,” and as a quack who takes medicine away from the sick, something he says he has never done. “I’ve been doing my ministry for 18 years. I never had a problem, I never had complaints,” Torben said. “Of course, there were misunderstandings. Maybe people got hurt and so on, like every other church and every other ministry. But when these programs started it just changed the whole atmosphere in Denmark. We were like, ‘We need to leave Denmark. This is not going to stop.’” Source

UP-DATE: 10-3-2019 Name: Randy Message: Hi. And thank you for your work. I\’ll make this short.

I know you value integrity and truth, so I\’ll just make a brief comment on an article you wrote about a new law in Denmark. In short, Torben Sondergaard claims a law has been proposed and passed (and because of him). There is no such law. There is a law – that was initiated before Torben Sondergaard got media exposure – about defending vulnerable people from harm from family members and close relatives. Torben Sondergaard is not the cause of this law, as he claims. And the law was passed – with no reference to religion or exorcism or anything similar whatsoever in it – after Torben Sondergaard had arrived at in the USA. In other words, the passed law was not the reason he fled. The facts are that Torben Sondergaard has made several million euros in the past few years and he didn’t have to pay such taxes in Denmark, and he received financial support from the government as well. He conveniently became “persecuted” when someone started asking how he used the money and how he treated people. So, there is no law against Christianity and nobody else in Denmark has made a claim of persecution like Torben Sondergaard has. Because there is no persecution. Torben Sondergaard is simply a guy who always causes problems for himself, others and makes new enemies – especially among those close to him – so he has “restarted” his ministry multiple times. Just a portion of truth for the day. All the best.

…………………………………………………..

The majority of Americans are Christians, but we’re not treated with respect by the culture, the schools, or by our politicians. “Vengeance” may be the Lord’s to dish out, but that doesn’t mean Christians have to support the people who are attacking us or meekly stand by when other followers of Christ are denigrated and oppressed for their faith. The habitual wimpiness of so many Christians is particularly grating because when Christians shine a spotlight on these attacks and say, “That’s enough,” more often than not we win. So, if Christians across the country were consistently willing to speak out and take action, you’d be surprised at how quickly our culture would begin to change. If that happens, instead of seeing this many incidents every year (All of these happened in 2013), they’d be a once in a blue moon occurrence.

1) Florida Ministry Told To Choose Between Jesus And Helping The Poor: “For the past 31 years, the Christian ministry has been providing food to the hungry in Lake City, Fla. without any problems. But all that changed when they said a state government worker showed up to negotiate a new contract. …(A) state agriculture department official told them they would not be allowed to receive USDA food unless they removed portraits of Christ, the Ten Commandments, a banner that read ‘Jesus is Lord’ and stopping giving Bibles to the needy.” When the government tells the Christian Service Center it has to give up on Christ or quit using USDA food to help the poor, that’s religious discrimination.

2) Billy Graham Evangelistic Association: Obama’s IRS Was “Targeting and Attempting to Intimidate Us:” It’s well known that the IRS targeted Obama’s political enemies in the Tea Party, but the IRS also targeted his Christian enemies in the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

Franklin Graham, the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the family’s international humanitarian organization Samaritan’s Purse, said that the IRS notified the organizations in September that it was conducting a “review” of their activities for tax year 2010.

…“While these audits not only wasted taxpayer money, they wasted money contributed by donors for ministry purposes as we had to spend precious resources servicing the IRS agents in our offices,” Graham wrote in the letter, which was shared with POLITICO. “I believe that someone in the administration was targeting and attempting to intimidate us. This is morally wrong and unethical – indeed some would call it ‘un-American.’”

Graham said that “in light” of the IRS admission that it targeted tea party groups for added scrutiny, “I do not believe that the IRS audit of our two organizations last year is a coincidence – or justifiable.”

The IRS would certainly deny targeting Graham’s group because it’s a Christian organization, but of course, the IRS would deny that it targeted the Tea Party groups for political reasons as well.

3) California Christians Found “Not Guilty” of Reading Bible Near Government Offices: “A court has said that a pair of Christians were ‘allowed’ to read the Bible aloud outside the Department of Motor Vehicles in Hemet, California. Wasn’t it kind of the government courts in California to say that these Christians were allowed to have their rights to free religious expression? …Back in 2011 Mark Mackey and Bret Coronado were arrested and charged with misdemeanor offenses for reading the Bible outside the DMV location. … But on August 13, Superior Court Judge Timothy Freer found the men ‘not guilty’ of any offenses. …Interestingly, the judge also pointed out that the law prosecutors tried to invoke was likely unconstitutional as it gave law enforcement overbroad powers to quash public gatherings in the first place. Sadly, this case did not go toward settling the constitutionality of the law, but it was a victory of sorts to have the judge even mention the fact.” Yes, there were actually Americans arrested for reading the Bible on public property. What do you think the chances are that two Muslims reading the Quran would have been arrested under the same circumstances?

4) Colorado Baker Faces Year In Jail For Refusing To Make Cake For Gay Wedding: You can support gay marriage or you can be Christian, but you can’t do both. You can pretend to do both, but you’re giving up your Christian beliefs to be more palatable to people who are hostile to Christianity. The folks at Masterpiece Cakeshop simply declined to make a cake for a gay wedding because it conflicted with their Christian beliefs. They learned that’s now illegal. According to attorney Nicolle Martin, the owners of a Colorado bakery could face a year in prison for refusing to make a cake for a gay wedding, Jim Hoft reported at the Gateway Pundit Monday. “The complainants can sue him civilly in the regular court’s system or he can potentially be prosecuted by the district attorney for up to twelve months in jail,” Martin told Hoft. In June, the Advocate said the Colorado Attorney General’s office filed a discrimination complaint against the owners of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Denver after the bakers refused to bake a cake for Dave Mullins and Charlie Craig, a Denver area gay couple, last year.

But Jack Phillips, one of the owners, declined to make the cake citing his Christian beliefs.

“We would close down the bakery before we compromised our beliefs,” he told KCNC, adding that protests and petitions will not make him change his mind. We have Americans being threatened with jail time for doing nothing more than refusing to affirmatively sanction an event that goes against Christianity. In other words, liberals aren’t just trying to make gay marriage legal; they’re trying to make opposition to gay marriage illegal.

5) Airforce Veteran Faces A Court Martial For Opposing Gay Marriage: Under Barack Obama, the military has become aggressively anti-Christian and pro-gay to such an extent that the troops are no longer even allowed to privately oppose gay marriage. Senior Master Sgt. Phillip Monk found himself at odds with his Lackland Air Force Base commander after he objected to her plans to severely punish an instructor who had expressed religious objections to homosexuality. During the conversation, his commander ordered him to share his personal views on homosexuality. “I was relieved of my position because I don’t agree with my commander’s position on gay marriage,” he told me. “We’ve been told that if you publicly say that homosexuality is wrong, you are in violation of Air Force policy.”

…Last week, Monk was supposed to meet with an Air Force investigator tasked with gathering facts about the complaint. But when he arrived, Monk was immediately read his Miranda Rights and accused of providing false statements in a conversation Monk had with (Fox’s Todd Starnes). After he was relieved of his duties, the Liberty Institute filed a religious discrimination complaint on his behalf.

…“I immediately got the sense that this was retaliation against me for coming forward with my religious discrimination complaint,” he said.

The accusations against Monk are a court-martial offense in the Air Force – and it’s quite possible that the 19-year veteran with a spotless record could be booted out of the military because of his Christian beliefs. And he’s not the only Christian at Lackland Air Force Base facing persecution for opposing gay marriage, according to Monk’s pastor. If you think the military has problems recruiting soldiers now, let the military keep persecuting Christians for their faith and see how well it does over the long haul. Of course, that wouldn’t upset the Left one bit, but the rest of us should be concerned.

6) Government Forces Churches To Get Permits For Baptisms: Nevertheless, the Park Service recently began a new policy requiring churches that wished to hold baptisms in public waters to apply for a special permit at least 48 hours in advance of the baptism. The Park Service justified this recent demand by saying that the permits were necessary to “maintain park natural/cultural resources and quality visitor experiences, specific terms and conditions have been established.”

…On August 21, Rep. Jason Smith (Missouri, R) heeded the complaints of his constituents and wrote a letter to the NPS asking what the heck was going on…

…Between citizen outrage and Rep. Smith’s threat to bring the matter before the full Congress, however, the Park Service quickly reversed its new policy, writing to the Congressman that, “As of today, the park’s policy has been clarified to state that no permit will be required for baptisms within the Riverways. I can assure you the National Park Service has no intention of limiting the number of baptisms performed within the park.” When the government demands that a church get a permit to do baptisms, it’s also tacitly saying it has the right to deny that permit. That’s not acceptable.

7) Florida Professor Demands Student Stomp On Jesus: It all started with a conflict between an antagonistic professor and one brave student at Florida Atlantic University. Ryan Rotela was told by his professor to write Jesus Christ’s name on a piece of paper and stomp on it. Rotela defiantly refused and in retaliation, formal disciplinary action was started against him. But, before the system could roll over Rotela, a funny thing happened. The word about what was happening to him got out, Christians became outraged, and suddenly the university’s tune quickly changed. “FAU’s Senior Vice President for Student Affairs, Dr. Charles Brown, has since issued a groveling formal apology.” Next thing you know, the disciplinary action was waved off. Now, comes word that the professor, Deandre Poole, has been put on administrative leave following a withering public response, that included complaints from the Governor of Florida, Rick Scott. Unfortunately, that story didn’t have a happy ending. Even after the governor got involved, Deandre Poole still kept his job. However, had Christians not risen up, the student who refused to stomp on Jesus would have been the one punished while the professor would have paid no price at all. Moreover, you can be sure there won’t be any more Jesus stomping going on in the classrooms at Florida Atlantic University any time soon. If there’s a lesson here, it’s that when Christians refuse to back down, we usually win. What that means is if enough Christians stand up for our faith, you’ll be surprised how fast the people in power lose their nerve about going after us. Source

Google has a frightening amount of control over the internet, and although one of their past mottos was “Don’t be evil,” they seem to have a different set of rules when it comes to dealing with Christians and conservatives. The firm recently informed the CEO of Concordia Publishing House, Bruce Kintz, that they were banning ads related to their cph.org domain, which sells religious books, music, and other items related to their conservative Lutheran denomination. He was told that the problem was related to the fact that items featured in the ad and on their website refer to the Bible and/or Jesus and that such references would need to be removed before they could be considered for reinclusion.

Kintz posted on Facebook: “[A CPH associate] was told, as an example, that things like our bible challenge on our [Vacation Bible School] webpage would clearly need to come down before they could consider us for ads.” Interestingly, the ad type in question is remarketing ads, which are shown to people who once visited a website but didn’t buy anything later on in hopes of attracting them back. In other words, the people who saw these ads in the first place would have already visited their site and presumably don’t find the idea of Jesus or the Bible offensive. A steadfast Kintz said his firm refuses to compromise their beliefs to meet Google’s demands. On the contrary, he feels it’s now even more important than ever to spread the word as society’s hostility toward Christians grows. This is all pretty typical behavior for Google, who regularly abuses its power in this and many other ways. They might not be able to remove websites they don’t agree with from the internet entirely, but they can certainly ensure these sites are buried so far down the search results that few people ever see them. Google also likes to wield its power to bury conservative sites, and this bias is also seen in its corporate culture. The firm is currently facing a class-action lawsuit filed by former employees for discrimination based on political views and the fact that they were white males. One engineer said he was fired after he wrote a memo expressing concerns about the firm “alienating conservatives” at its head office. The suit also indicates that managers at the firm created blacklists of employees known to have conservative beliefs so they could avoid working with them on projects and pass them over for promotions. Earlier this year, they were accused of censoring conservative media sites like Breitbart and WND by giving them “fake news” warnings. Last year, Google blacklisted Natural News from its search results for six days without justification; it was only restored after very vocal backlash. Christianity under attack in California In California, where Google’s headquarters are situated, lawmakers are considering a new bill that could essentially criminalize the Bible. The amendment would outlaw goods like religious texts that deal with topics related to gender and sexual orientation. Presumably, if certain sections were not edited out of the Bible, it would become illegal to sell it there. It will be interesting to see if something like this can pass because it looks like a clear violation of the constitutional freedom of religion. Kintz is right: Christianity is indeed under attack, and the great irony is that those who accuse Christians of being intolerant are not practicing what they preach. See Antichrist.news for more stories about attacks on Christianity. A piece of legislation known as the Equality Act is expected to be introduced soon by House Democrats. The bill’s provisions add the categories of “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the list of protected classes in the 1964 Civil Rights Act. As I wrote in 2015, when the Equality Act was first introduced, the bill represents the most invasive threat to religious liberty ever proposed in America. Given that it touches areas of education, public accommodation, employment, and federal funding were it to pass, its sweeping effects on religious liberty, free speech, and freedom of conscience would be both historic and also chilling.

The bill represents the most invasive threat to religious liberty ever proposed in America.

Its passage would sound the death knell for hopes of détente in the culture wars that pit conservative Christians against their LGBT neighbors. For progressives, it would be winner-take-all. Virtually no area of American life would emerge unscathed from the Equality Act’s reach. No less significant would be the long-term effects of how the law would shape the moral imagination of future generations.

Supporting the Sexual Revolution To be clear, Christians reject all forms of invidious discrimination. We believe all persons, including those who identify as LGBT, are made in God’s image and deserve respect, kindness, and neighborliness. But this truth does not necessitate Christian capitulation to the sexual revolution. No Christian who believes that the Bible’s depiction of created reality is both sacred and also authoritative can accept the Equality Act’s underlying tenets. By codifying the ideas that (1) sexuality has no core ethical limits other than consent and that (2) male and female definitions are psychologically based, rather than biologically based, the Equality Act must be interpreted as an assault on Christian institutions and especially on parental rights—since public education will be transformed to follow the law’s provisions. It will further lead to the corrosion of our public discourse, the type of discourse that breeds zero-sum outcomes. One only has to look to Tim Gill (who infamously remarked that he intends to “punish the wicked”—those who fail to endorse LGBT politics) or Harvard law professor Mark Tushnet (who compared those who fail to endorse LGBT policies to Nazis) to see how fraught this conversation has become. For progressives, the Equality Act is the rallying cry that would forever cement the legitimacy of sexual-revolution ethics into federal law. For progressives, the Equality Act is the rallying cry that would forever cement the legitimacy of sexual-revolution ethics into federal law. The Equality Act will not only accelerate the number of conflicts pitting Christians against their conscience, it will also shift the Overton Window to accelerate the pace of anti-Christian bias in society. Of course, Christians expect persecution and anti-Christian bias. Our Lord Jesus predicted as much. But our Lord’s words need not mean we hasten persecution. The tragedy of the moment is that many progressives, sensing the cultural winds at their backs, have signaled no interest in playing nice with those who disagree with them when it comes to matters of sexuality and gender. Consider the scathing opinion editorial by actress Cynthia Nixon, who took to the pages of The Washington Post to call Vice President Mike Pence “insidious” because he holds to a culturally conservative worldview on matters of sexuality and gender. According to Nixon, not only do Christians hold views she personally disagrees with; she also can’t understand how a group of people could hold to views she considers so innately toxic and immoral. Culturally Disfavored ≠ Morally Repugnant

But at the level of public policy, why is support for the Equality Act completely unacceptable? Here’s why: It’s not viewpoint neutral. It communicates that Christian beliefs about what it means to be male and female, and how marriage ought to be defined, are incompatible with what U.S. law considers to be decent, reasonable, goodwill convictions. The Equality Act fails to make meaningful status/conduct distinctions. It treats the Christian baker who objects to using her creative talent to design a same-sex wedding cake the same as an individual who would stupidly, and bigotedly, deny an LGBT person a booth at a restaurant. In short, the Equality Act equates Christian ethics with hatred and bigotry. Moreover, if the new bill is the same bill as previously introduced, it has a specific—and stunningly audacious—provision that guts the Religious Freedom Restoration Act from being appealed to in situations where the Equality Act applies. It specifically defenestrates and subjugates constitutional and statutory precedent beneath the ever-evolving norms of “gender identity” and “sexual orientation.” The Equality Act equates Christian ethics with hatred and bigotry.

Christians need to do a much better job of explaining the rationale and merits of their beliefs around gender and sexuality. We do not believe these are sectarian truths applicable only to Christians. Rather, we believe how God patterned creation in Genesis is the blueprint for human flourishing. If we don’t contend for the legitimacy and rationality of our views, they’ll end up being sidelined as intolerant and harmful—to the detriment of all. Some beliefs and viewpoints within society—for example, racism—are morally repugnant. Even so, our constitutional framework allows such attitudes to exist on the margins of society where they belong, and when deemed necessary, impeded upon for the sake of equal treatment under the law. There are also viewpoints, held in goodwill, by millions of Americans that are culturally disfavored, especially views concerning the definition of male and female and the definition of marriage. But what is culturally disfavored is not necessarily synonymous with what is morally repugnant. Opinions or viewpoints that don’t enjoy cultural support can be held with sincere goodwill. It’s important that legislation that aims to protect all sides understand this point. Any piece of federal legislation that fails to differentiate culturally disfavored views from morally repugnant views, or implies that culturally disfavored views are necessarily morally repugnant, is legislation that evangelicals cannot support. The Equality Act not only fails to do so, but it also contributes to the decline of understanding and civic pluralism. What is culturally disfavored is not necessarily synonymous with what is morally repugnant. The concerns expressed here say nothing of the absurdities of the bill itself. As one panelist at the Heritage Foundation suggested, the Equality Act should be called the “Female Erasure Act,” since in codifying the transgender worldview into law, it defines womanhood (and manhood) as little more than psychological fantasy.

Opposing the Equality Act The Equality Act must be opposed. Any Christian legislator or conservative legislator who understands the vital urgency of religious liberty must oppose it. Or else, with the stroke of a pen, pillars of human history—the ideas that marriage is a complementary union of a man and a woman, and that male and female are immutable, biological realities—would be thrown into the dustbin of history. If progressives get their wish, the Equality Act would usher in “the Right Side of History” to which they constantly appeal. The timing of the Equality Acts release comes at a providential time. Just last week, Christian baker Jack Phillips—of the infamous “Masterpiece Cakes” legal case—had complaints of discrimination against him dismissed in Colorado. The reason? Colorado’s Civil Rights Commission was deemed as treating Phillips’s religious convictions with contempt. Just as one hopes that the government would learn a lesson in refusing to punish individuals like Phillips, who hold their faith with charity and goodwill toward all, the Equality Act is coming along to cement the same type of anti-Christian bias into American law.

This makes no sense since sexual orientation has to do with gender, not age, with whether you are attracted to males or females, not how old they are. There are even organizations (like B4UAct.org) which are claiming that pedophiles are being unfairly stigmatized for their feelings!

Pope Pushes One World Religion on Israel’s Independence Day

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz February 11, 2020 , 2:51 pm

They have said: ‘Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.’ For they have consulted together with one consent; against Thee do they make a covenant; The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites.” Psalms 83:5-7 (The Israel Bible™) Historically, the Vatican was no friend to the Jews but its new initiative aligns the Catholic Church with Islam in a one-world religion that may be the biggest threat ever to the Jewish People. A major event to advance the project will take place on the anniversary of the birth of the State of Israel which, according to one rabbi, is fitting since Judaism is the last bastion, entirely incompatible with a New World Order. At an address to Vatican diplomats last month, Pope Francis announced that the Vatican will be hosting a global event with titled, “Reinventing the Global Compact on Education.” “A global educational pact is needed to educate us in universal solidarity and a new humanism,” the Pope said when he first proposed the summit. A Vatican-backed website to promote the pact added: “Educating young people in fraternity, in learning to overcome divisions and conflicts, promote hospitality, justice and peace: Pope Francis has invited everyone who cares about the education of the young generation to sign a Global Pact, to create a global change of mentality through education.” The Pope described the need for the global alliance. “‘Never before has there been such need to unite our efforts in a broad educational alliance, to form mature individuals capable of overcoming division and antagonism, and to restore the fabric of relationships for the sake of a more fraternal humanity,’” he said. The Pope cited the aphorism “It takes a village to raise a child,” explaining its place in his global vision. “All change, like the epochal change we are now experiencing, calls for a process of education and the creation of an educational village capable of forming a network of open and human relationships,” he said. “Education is not limited to school and university classrooms,” the Pope said at the address last month. “[It is] principally ensured by strengthening and reinforcing the primary right of the family to educate, and the right of Churches and social communities to support and assist families in raising their children.” The education initiative is a continuation of the Pope’s global vision as laid out in his Document on the Human Brotherhood for World Peace and Common Living Together signed by Pope Francis and Sheikh Ahmed el-Tayeb, Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, in February 2019 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The agreement between the two religious leaders was criticized for its stance on the diversity of religions. “The fact that people are forced to adhere to a certain religion or culture must be rejected,” the document read. “As too the imposition of a cultural way of life that others do not accept.”   Rabbi Pinchas Winston, a prolific end-of-times author, noted that in many surprising respects, the Vatican is now practically indistinguish able from secularism. “It used to be that the Catholic Church was the bastion that stood against liberalism in every way, denouncing it as heresy,” Rabbi Winston said. “This was the case for as long as the Vatican could impose its will on its people and influence the rest of the world. That reality has changed because they don’t have that power anymore. Pope Francis is a result of this change. He is a ‘man of the people.’” Rabbi Winston noted that traditional values in the Catholic Church are indeed changing in ways that would have been inconceivable not so long ago.

“They used to say that secular values and liberalism were bad but when the people changed and liberalism became widespread, the Vatican reversed that position.,” Rabbi Winston said. “How can a religion claim to be from God when a man can decide to change it?” Rabbi Winston noted that the theme of one-world order as presented by the Pope was presented several times in the Bible. “Seeing the world as one is how it was in the days before the Tower of Babel,” Rabbi Winston said. “This was when men joined together to take over the world and kick God out.” Rabbi Winston noted that the counterintuitive mix of secular intellectualism and religion appeared later in Genesis. “According to Midrash, Esau impressed his father, Isaac, with questions that seemed to relate to religion but were only leveled on the intellectual level. The real intent of the questions was to generate chaos and division. The erev rav (mixed multitude) works this way, by making it appear that their intentions are pure and that they are good people. But their real intent is destructive; to disable truth.” “The secular present universalism as the source of all brotherhood but it is exactly the opposite. There is more diversity in the world than ever before in human history. To have one way to worship God before Moshiach (Messiah) comes and brings everyone up to speed is not realistic and harmful to anyone who does not conform. The Pope should be smart enough to realize that there are very good reasons for the differences. People are different. This new initiative by the Vatican is classic liberalism in the garb of religion.” The date of the global educational summit is May 14, precisely 72 years after Israel proclaimed its independence. Rabbi Winston suggested that this could have a deeper meaning, indicating the inherent conflict between the Jewish People and universal religion. “They can’t get rid of the Jews and what they represent anymore by simply attacking us, which was how it was done for 2,000 years,” Rabbi Winston said. “Are they trying to get rid of the Jews and the Torah by creating one world religion? Anyone who wants a one-world order has to get rid of the Jews because all of human history has proven that the core of Torah Judaism doesn’t change, even, when necessary, and the cost of death. We are still the same people in the same land with the same Torah.”

Domestic Terrorism In Portland, Oregon! Antifa Terrorists Attack Journalist, Woman, Deface War Memorials & More

By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine February 10, 2020

There is only one way to handle a thug and a bully. Put them on their butt, hard and fast. Make it clear that if they get in your face that you will knock them out of it. If they touch you, you will punch them. If they punch you, then you will put them in the hospital. Lastly, if they put you or someone else in the hospital, you will put them in the ground. Self defense is a God-given right and unless "we the people" fight back, soy-boy Antifa thugs that form mobs to attack innocent people will win, every time.  Notice how Antifa members, supposedly "anti-fascists," yet more fascist than anyone they accuse of being, never attack groups or events that have armed attendants, or bikers' rallies, or other types of large patriot groups, or cities where it is legal to openly carry weapons? Because they are cowards that can only terrorize people by forming mobs and harassing them, and getting violent the majority of the time. PORTLAND, OREGON ANTIFA GET VIOLENT AGAIN One specific city has more of a problem with Antifa groups, violence and riots than any other in the United States. That is Portland, Oregon. The reason Portland has such an issue is because the Mayor is a liberal coward, scared to death of facing off with Antifa members, and is known for forcing the police to stand down. We have seen videos of Antifa members literally taking over the streets, harassing motorists, forcing them to detour and cursing and yelling at motorists that refuse to allow them to direct traffic. We have seen journalists attacked, even hospitalized from violent mob attacks. Just a quick search over at YouTube for "Antifa Portland Oregon" brings up a cornucopia of videos from three years ago, two years ago, one year ago, nine months, seven months , six months..... Pretty sure you all get the point. Antifa owns Portland, Oregon because of a cowardly mayor and law enforcement that stands around and watches the majority of the time, without offering any help to the victims. On Saturday, that happened again. A journalist from Stumptown Matters went to document an rumored rally by the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), and Antifa groups were planning a protest against the KKK. On the Stumptown Matters' YouTube channel the journalist explains what happens in the details of the 2 minute video. On Saturday February 8th 2020, Stumptown Matters went into Downtown Portland Oregon to film and document the protest of a KKK rally that was reported to take place that day. When I arrived at the scene, I learned that the KKK cancelled their event. I despise the KKK and racism in general. I was actually looking forward to siding with Antifa on this day. For they had real and legit racists to confront had the KKK followed through with their initial plans. So ultimately I stood across the street from the Antifa Gathering and gazed upon them just to estimate the number of their turnout. which was probably 300 to 500 people. I was planning on leaving and I hadn't even begun filming yet. Then Luis Marquez called me out by name. I said hello and then I raised my camera to start filming the commotion. Then a masked group of 20 or more people began to spread out and cross the street from where Luis was standing and began to walk fast toward me. They had concealed objects or weapons in their hands. One of which was approaching me while shaking a can of pepper spray. I wanted no part of whatever intentions they had for me so I immediately abandoned my camera duties and sprinted to safety. I didnt want to be hurt or pepper sprayed and I didn't want to hurt any of them either. So running was the only sensible action to me at that moment. People can call me a pussy all day long until they are blue in the face. That's perfectly fine with me. I simply did not want to play and I got away unharmed. My safe space happened to be the justice center where the riot police confronted me and told me that if I go back out where I was, then they wouldnt protect me. Implying once again that masked thugs run the streets of portland Oregon and if you are targeted by them, then you are the problem according to portland police.

(ANP EMERGENCY FUNDRAISER! Due to the recent unforeseen medical expenses, All News Pipeline will need financial help in the months ahead. If you like stories like this, please consider donating to ANP to help keep us in this 'Info-war' for America at a time of systematic censorship and corruption.) Independent journalist Andy Ngo, who has been documenting Antifa's terrorizing Portland citizens for years, and who had to be hospitalized for a brain injury after Antifa attacked him in 2019, explains the liquid that was sprayed on the Stumptown Matters' journalist. Ngo tweeted "The “orange liquid” sprayed over Brandon Brown’s face was bear mace. It’s an oil that burns & doesn’t easily wash off. Antifa have been using it as a weapon of choice in attacks against journalists they dislike. Brown did nothing to provoke this violence." Here is a partial video from a different angle, where you can see the journalist who was attacked. If that is not domestic terrorism, what is? Out of the dozens of Antifa domestic terrorists seen causing trouble at different locations and times during the event, shown in the last video at the end of this article, the police managed to arrest just three. In that video below, it shows Antifa goons attacking a woman and pushing her around into the street, and she was there protesting president Trump's acquittal. So, basically we now have leftists goons attacking leftists protesters. We never claimed they were very smart! ANTIFA DEFACES WAR MEMORIALS

Since there was no KKK event to protest, Antifa members didn't disburse, they went and found trouble elsewhere by deciding to deface war memorials. Some of the messages spray painted on the memorials include "All cops are B*stards," "Punch Cops" and "Kill Cops," as can be seen in the image below. BOTTOM LINE Portland residents need to replace Mayor Ted Wheeler who has allowed Antifa domestic terrorists to literally take over the streets of Portland, Oregon, and elect someone that will clean up the mess Wheeler's liberal policies have allowed. Below is a compilation of some of the violent events Wheeler and the Portland Police allowed on Saturday.

UN warns of ‘major shock’ as Africa locust outbreak spreads

Associated Press / 08:18 AM February 11, 2020

JOHANNESBURG — Uganda scrambled to respond to the arrival of the biggest locust outbreak that parts of East Africa have seen in decades, while the United Nations warned Monday that “we simply cannot afford another major shock” to an already vulnerable region. An emergency government meeting hours after the locusts were spotted inside Uganda on Sunday decided to deploy military forces to help with ground-based pesticide spraying, while two planes for aerial spraying will arrive as soon as possible, a statement said. Aerial spraying is considered the only effective control. The swarms of billions of locusts have been destroying crops in Kenya, which hasn’t seen such an outbreak in 70 years, as well as Somalia and Ethiopia, which haven’t seen this in a quarter-century.  The insects have exploited favorable wet conditions after unusually heavy rains, and experts say climate change is expected to bring more of the same. Keith Cressman, the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organizations senior locust forecasting officer, said Kenya has received “waves and waves of swarms” since the beginning of the year from the Horn of Africa, and “over the weekend they moved on the side of Mount Kilimanjaro across the border into Tanzania.” “Also over the weekend they moved into northeastern Uganda,” he told a news conference at U.N. headquarters in New York. “We’re expecting any day they will move across the border into the southeast corner of South Sudan,” where another several million people face hunger as the country struggles to emerge from civil war. A medium-size swarm of locusts can eat the same amount of food as the entire population of Kenya, Cressman said, and “that swarm in one day can eat the same amount of food as everybody here in the tri-state area, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York. So not taking action in time — you can see the consequences.” U.N. officials warn that immediate action is needed before more rainfall in the weeks ahead brings fresh vegetation to feed new generations of locusts. If left unchecked, their numbers could grow up to 500 times before drier weather arrives, they say. “There is the risk of a catastrophe,” U.N. humanitarian chief Mark Lowcock told a briefing in New York on Monday, warning that 13 million people already face severe food insecurity 10 million in places affected by locusts — and the region can’t afford another jolt. Dominique Burgeon, the FAO’s emergency and resilience director, warned at the U.N. briefing that another 20 million people in the region are in danger of becoming food insecure. Without enough aerial spraying to stop the swarms, the locust outbreak could turn into a plague, “and when you have a plague, it takes years to control,” Burgeon told The Associated Press last week. The U.N. has asked for $76 million in immediate aid. So far just under $20 million is in hand, including $10 million released by Lowcock from the U.N. emergency relief fund and $3.8 million from FAO, officials said. The United States said Monday it has released $800,000 and the European Union has released 1 million euros. “The response today is not gonna work, unless there’s a big scale-up,” Lowcock said. The locusts are eating the vegetation that supports vibrant herder communities in the region, and Kenyan Ambassador Lazarus Amayo warned of the “inherent risk of communal conflict over pastures.” The outbreak is so severe it might even disrupt the planting of crops in the coming weeks, he said, adding that the locusts “do wanton damage.”

Americans Will Have To Make Some Tough Choices On How They’ll Go About Surviving When Basic Necessities Become Nearly Unaffordable

grekalbert Alternative 3rd Feb 2020 8 Minutes

A group of influential economic experts has discovered what they call a” frightening pattern” that they say will be unlike anything ever seen. They have presented their findings to the U.N. and a long list of world governments and indicate that this collapse could happen before the November elections in the U.S One member of the team, Chris Martenson, stated, “We found an identical pattern in our debt, total credit market, and money supply that guarantees they’re going to fail. This pattern is nearly the same as in any pyramid scheme, one that escalates exponentially fast before it collapses. Governments around the globe are chiefly responsible.” “And what’s really disturbing about these findings is that the pattern isn’t limited to our economy. We found the same catastrophic pattern in our energy, food, and water systems as well. For 30 years – from the 1940s through the 1970s – our total credit market debt was moderate and entirely reasonable,” he says. “But then in seven years, from 1970 to 1977, it quickly doubled. And then it doubled again in seven more years. Then five years to double a third time. And then it doubled two more times after that. Where we were sitting at a total credit market debt that was 158% larger than our GDP in the early 1940s… By 2011 that figure was 357%.” “Most frightening of all is how this exact same pattern keeps appearing in virtually every system critical to our society and way of life,” Dr. Moors stated. “It’s a pattern that’s hard to see unless you understand the way a catastrophe like this gains traction. At first, it’s almost impossible to perceive. Everything looks fine, just like in every pyramid scheme. Yet the insidious growth of the virus keeps doubling in size, over and over again – in shorter and shorter periods of time – until it hits unsustainable levels. And it collapses the system.” Fitz-Gerald says, “If our research is right, Americans will have to make some tough choices on how they’ll go about surviving when basic necessities become nearly unaffordable and the economy becomes dangerously unstable. People need to begin to make preparations with their investments, retirement savings, and personal finances before it’s too late”. When everything collapses at the same time the primary need will be food. The disruption of transportation and distribution systems will create a nation of very desperate people that may be capable of anything. When the distribution of food stops the only way to feed yourself is to already have food stores and/or the ability to grow your own. The worst time for a collapse of the food system is in the fall and winter months. During the spring and summer months it is possible to grow some food locally just about anywhere but when the weather turns cold, if you do not already have food stores or a winter garden in place, you are more likely to starve. The winter weather will not only prevent local food production in most areas of the country but the lack of systems to provide fuel and keep the roads clear of snow and ice can prevent the relocation of people to other areas making them prisoners wherever they are. People will be without food at the time of year when their bodies need even more to keep warm. This is only one aspect of a complete collapse and does not even get into the lack of heat for warmth and cooking, water , power and security issues that will be prevalent everywhere. While a collapse will stretch your coping ability to new limits, it will be far worse if it happens in the colder months of the year. The lack of preparations by a majority of the population will be nothing short of catastrophic because those people have simply refused to listen to the warnings up to now. For those that have prepared it will be difficult to have sympathy for those that ignored the warnings and continued life as usual. Once the system collapses it will be difficult to restart and will probably be led by the local production and distribution of food and water. This will likely follow a massive die off of the sick, elderly and very young that will have a difficult time coping until things improve. If you are in one of these groups you may not get another chance to stock up on the critical items you need to live so use this time wisely. As dire as this sounds, the situation will in all likelihood be much more severe and dangerous for the unprepared and prepared alike. If you have not done so yet, prepare now. Simply having supplies piled up in preparation for some occurrence is not enough to insure your survival. There are several other things you must keep in mind and balance out among your preparations.

You must imagine the potential catastrophic possibilities

You must prepare yourself mentally to deal with whatever happens

You must have knowledge of how best to employ your resources

You need to use your imagination to think outside the box

You must be able to improvise, adapt and overcome obstacles

You must have a flexible plan to guide you

Many people have spewed hateful rhetoric at preppers over the years and today some are finding themselves in dire circumstances as infrastructure and supplies are cut off for an indefinite period of time. Those unprepared individuals have few options and now rely on the actions of others to insure their survival. As many in the Caribbean can now attest to, having to wait for help to come from hundreds or even thousands of miles away is slow and stressful to those who wait. They do not know when help will arrive and what resources will be available when they arrive. It could take years for many locations to return to some type of normalcy and this is at a time when help is available and forthcoming. What happens when that help is not available following an event? In the world we now live in the bulk of the population is conditioned to wait for help to come. They are not encouraged to perform self help to minimize their suffering. This leads to many more victims to deal with overloading services and resources available to the public. This is happening in good times. What happens when things deteriorate and no help is available to communities or cities? What will happen when people and equipment do not come because damage is wide scale? What happens when all expendable resources are exhausted and cannot be replaced? Preppers already know the answers to those questions and that is why they prepare. They know that someday an event could happen where no help will be available and they will be on their own for weeks or months. They know if something happens, what they have on hand is all they will likely have to work with for the duration. They know those that have not planned will be victims and most will expect someone to help them and their family. This creates a difficult situation for preppers and victims alike. The act of learned helplessness is the only thing many people know today and that will lead to a reduced chance of survival for many depending on the depth of the event. A prepper can only do so much to help others in this type of situation but the main thing they possess are the leadership qualities and survival skills the masses need to come through the situation. Following an event there will be a certain number of survivors that will see the light and understand what preppers have been trying to tell them for years. These people will differ from those that will still have the entitlement mentality and expect others to care for them and provide resources they need. These newly enlightened individuals are the ones that preppers will be able to help the most. The true leaders in society will be able to direct these individuals on courses of action that will allow them to slowly recover and build up some resilience over time. These are the actions that will be necessary to reduce the chaos in society and provide some stabilization. These people will help provide a buffer between preppers and the hostile unprepared masses that manage to survive. Make no mistake about it. There will be groups with varying mindsets roaming about following an event and it is advantageous to have as many of them on your side as possible. There is little you can do about the entitled victims except defend against their actions. In this case, there will be safety in numbers. While a prepper cannot foresee every problem, they can plan ahead and set aside some resources that can help solidify your leadership among those you are able to work with. This could take the form of setting aside a few drums of bulk grains like oats or beans that can be purchased cheaply now but will allow you to feed a small group of people a basic meal for several weeks. The small price of a few drums of grain could buy a lot of goodwill. Being able to provide clean drinking water to a small group by purchasing a good spare water filter will help eliminate the spread of disease among the group. Having a few medications that can help a few individuals that do manage to become sick will mean a lot to their families. Having a few extra radios that the group can share will help with security for everyone. Having a means to provide a small power source for lighting or battery recharging could mean a great deal to those with no power. In some locations having an extra wood stove to share and some wood will provide these people with heat and cooking ability. There are many little things that could be worth a great deal to unprepared survivors that will help to stabilize their situation and insure they do not become a hostile force you would eventually have to deal with. You may not be able to help everyone or provide everything they need but being able to help a few can have long term benefits. In a survival situation there will be many that become threats to you no matter what you do but the more you can eliminate from that potential pool the safer life will be for you. No matter what type of event takes place or how long the effects last eventually there will come a time of stabilization. The type of people in control of that stable situation could be a good thing or a very bad thing. As a prepper you could have a lot of influence over the outcome.

Turkey Deploys Hundreds Of Tanks, APCs And Commandos To Idlib; Attacks Syrian Army

by Tyler Durden Mon, 02/10/2020 - 17:05

With the geopolitical situation now firmly on the backburner, we remind readers that the last time we checked into the flurry of recent events in Syria over the weekend, we found that the Syrian Army was making major gains inside Idlib in a military offensive condemned by Turkey and the United States, capturing the key town of Saraqib from al-Qaeda linked Hayat Tahrir al-Sham. Amid the military advance, in the latest embarrassment to the US State Department, the Syrian and Russian governments said they've recovered proof of US support for the anti-Assad al-Qaeda insurgent terrorists, publishing photographs of crates of weapons and supplies to state-run SANA. In any case, the growing feud between Russia and Turkey over control of Syria last remaining rebel holdout in Idlib province escalated overnight, and as Bloomberg reports, Turkey sent hundreds of tanks, armored personnel carriers and commandos to the Syrian province of Idlib as preparations continue for a likely attempt to break the siege of some of its outposts by Bashar al-Assad’s forces. The massive buildup over the weekend included the deployment of howitzers, multiple-rocket launchers, ambulances and trucks loaded with munitions, according to Turkey's state-run Anadolu Agency.  Meanwhile, Turkey resumed talks with a Russian delegation in Ankara on Monday after failure to reach an agreement on Idlib on Saturday, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said, adding that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Russia’s Vladimir Putin may meet if no deal can be reached Turkey dramatically reinforced its forces across the border since Syrian troops killed five Turkish soldiers and a civilian in Idlib on Feb. 3 as they closed in on the country’s last major rebel holdout. "Five of our troops were killed and five others were injured in the shelling by the Syrian regime,” the Turkish Defense Ministry said on Monday, adding that “return fire was opened." It wasn't the first shelling incident between Turkish and Syrian forces in Idlib. A week ago, six Turkish troops were killed by Syrian artillery fire in an incident that Russia said was a result of miscommunication. The casualties could have been avoided if Ankara properly notified Damascus that it was moving troops in a border area where Damascus was holding an anti-terrorist operation at the time, Moscow said. Turkey's Daily Sabah reported that in response to the alleged death of Turkish soldiers, 115 regime targets have been struck, 101 regime soldiers have been neutralized (i.e. killed), and 3 tanks and 2 mortars have been destroyed, as the conflict is rapidly devolving into an all out war between Syria and Turkey. Turkey also called on Moscow to put pressure on Damascus to halt its offensive in Idlib. Meanwhile, Syria’s government has been using Russian air support to vanquish onetime al-Qaeda affiliates and Turkey-backed rebels in the province. Erdogan last week threatened to use force to break the siege of military outposts in Idlib unless Syrian forces withdraw before the end of February. At least three of 12 Turkish outposts were confirmed to be cut off by Syrian forces in the area. Feigning humanitarian concern, Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar told Hurriuet newspaper that Turkey's main goal was "to prevent a refugee exodus and humanitarian drama" adding that "we’re trying to reach a cease-fire and stop the bloodshed." However, he then made it quickly clear that the fight over northern Syria is all about strategic positioning, noting that if the violation of the Sochi and Astana agreements, which were signed by Turkey, Russia and Iran to curtail fighting in northern Syria, "continued, then we have plans B and C," Akar said. “We keep telling them not to force us” to implement those plans. Ankara was expected to use its influence on anti-government militants to prevent fighting with Damascus troops in order to create the basis for a peaceful resolution. However, jihadist groups in Idlib continue hostile activities, with Russia saying there were several thousand attacks in the last two months alone, in which hundreds of Syrian troops and civilians died.

Mudslides, washouts block access to Mt. Rainier National Park 'indefinitely'

by Carleen Johnson & KOMO News StaffMonday, February 10th 2020

ASHFORD, Wash. — Landslides, washouts and floodwaters will keep roads into Mount Rainier National Park closed until further notice, state transportation officials said. The damage, triggered by last week's driving rain, has essentially cut off people who live in the town of Ashford, with portions of State Route 706 buried in soupy debris up to six feet deep. Several hundred people live in the affected area, according to local residents. Access to the park itself, including the Nisqually entrance, Longmire and Paradise, also is shut down - and may remain shut for days or weeks. Doug Adamson, spokesman for the state Department of Transportation, says a U.S. Forest Service road above the highway collapsed and a creek has diverted down onto the main road. "Generally whenever (there are) slides, our expert maintenance crews go out there and work diligently with heavy equipment to scoop aside the debris (but) this is a much different situation. This slide is much more dangerous," he said. "The plan going forward is we have to get that running water off the highway before we can do anything." Troy Cowan, assistant regional transportation administrator, said removing debris from the highway isn't possible right now because that could trigger more slides. "That could put lives – both of crews and travelers – in danger," he said. In addition to clearing the slide when it is safe to do so, state transportation engineers also will work with the National Park Service to begin the process to determine a long-term fix to stabilize the hillside. The Park Service has been running an escort convoy each day over a Forest Service back road for residents dealing with the landslide, so they can get supplies. Historic structures, including the National Park Inn and other buildings within the Longmire National Historic District have also been damaged by floodwaters. To the north and east of the national park, State Route 410 was blocked by multiple slides, but crews planned to reopen the roadway Monday evening. Great news for skiers and the people who run the Crystal Mountain Ski Resort. State road crews late Monday reopened all of State Route 410 by removing the last of four landslides. Greenwater just down the road from Crystal is finally freed from the isolation of being behind those massive mudslides. “It’s been very difficult,” said Carol Haines who lives in Greenwater. “We’ve gone through the floods in the past and this one was unusual because we had such a high snowpack and then relentless rains.” Haines and the rest of the hundred or so people who live and vacation here have been without power and phones. “It does wear on you after a couple of day,” she said. “Especially when you lose all of your groceries in your refrigerator and then you kind of have to scramble and make stuff on the wood stove like the old days.” The slide just east of town was cleared away Sunday night which allowed Jessica Atherton to finally get back to her cabin. “So you’re obviously anxious when you can’t get up there and you want to, but not overly anxious because we’ve just felt that all of the information has been forth coming and it’s been great," Atherton said. "Great community effort.” The closure came at a tough time for the ski resort because they say, even though we had a lot of rain, it led to a lot of snow. They say conditions up are no perfect. From Air 4 you could see the new snow that has fallen since Friday night. Some Crystal Mountain employees and guests have been trapped at the resort since Thursday. But they say it’s a resort, after all, and everyone was kept warm, fed and fine. They said thanks to the quick work of the state transportation crews in safely clearing away the last remaining massive mudslide, operations can be up and running tomorrow between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. For the folks at Wapiti Outfitters in Greenwater that’s great news. “We fully anticipate that to pick up and everyone to be fully back at it and skiing and snowshoeing and doing all of the things that they love this weekend,” said John Clark.  King County Emergency Management is asking property and business owners to submit flood damage reports in response to recent winter storms. Those who suffered property damage or other losses since Jan. 20 may be eligible for financial assistance. Eligibility is determined through a damage assessment process, now underway, that takes into account the total reported losses within King County. Individuals and businesses in King County are encouraged to submit reports of losses to King County Emergency Management online HERE or by phone at 1-800-523-5044 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. beginning Feb. 11.

Cruise Ship Rejected by Five Ports Runs Out of Options

K. Oanh Ha 2 days ago

(Bloomberg) -- The 2,257 passengers and crew onboard the Westerdam luxury liner are in limbo once again after Thailand became the latest country to turn the ship away from its ports, leaving guests desperate to disembark after almost two weeks at sea. Fearing that some passengers aboard the Westerdam may be infected with the deadly new coronavirus, Thailand’s Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul announced Tuesday in a Facebook post that he’s directed authorities not to let them disembark. The statement was confirmed by other Thai officials. The ship’s operator has said it has no reason to believe there are any cases of coronavirus on board. The World Health Organization seemed to offer a ray of hope -- saying that health authorities may try to board the ship to assess the passengers’ health to see whether they may be allowed to get off the ship in Thailand. Operated by Holland America Line, a brand owned by Miami-based cruise giant Carnival Corp., the ship has been refused entry by five countries or territories, according to the WHO. Ports in Taiwan, Japan, the Philippines and Guam have also sent it away on concerns over the virus, which has killed more than 1,000 people since it was first reported late last year in Wuhan, China. The refusal and quarantine of cruise ships are the latest stepped-up measures by governments around the world struggling to contain the outbreak. Carnival’s Diamond Princess and its 3,700 passengers are quarantined in the port of Yokohama, Japan, as authorities battle an increasing number of infections onboard.  The WHO said Thai officials have indicated that if the ship enters the country’s waters, “authorities may seek to board the ship to determine the health status of passengers and crew, to determine whether they would be allowed to eventually disembark in Thailand,” according to a statement. The ship is currently off the southern coast of Vietnam, according to the WHO and Bloomberg data. On board the Westerdam, passenger Stephen Hansen said he was relieved when travelers were initially told Monday that they would be allowed to disembark in Thailand. Guests scrambled to rebook flights home and everyone had their temperatures taken. By Tuesday morning, they learned from media reports that Thailand had refused the ship. ‘Back in Limbo’ “To have that snatched away at the last minute with no other solution at hand was very upsetting,” said Hansen, who is traveling with his wife. “So we are back in limbo again.” Hansen called on the governments of passengers’ home countries to seek a solution, saying medicine, food and other supplies would soon run short. Others on the Westerdam took to social media after learning about Thailand’s refusal. The cruise ship operator hasn’t had much news to offer passengers.

On board the Westerdam, passenger Stephen Hansen said he was relieved when travelers were initially told Monday that they would be allowed to disembark in Thailand. Guests scrambled to rebook flights home and everyone had their temperatures taken. By Tuesday morning, they learned from media reports that Thailand had refused the ship. ‘Back in Limbo’

To have that snatched away at the last minute with no other solution at hand was very upsetting,” said Hansen, who is traveling with his wife. “So we are back in limbo again.”

Hansen called on the governments of passengers’ home countries to seek a solution, saying medicine, food and other supplies would soon run short. Others on the Westerdam took to social media after learning about Thailand’s refusal.

The cruise ship operator hasn’t had much news to offer passengers.

“We are actively working this matter and will provide an update when we are able,” Holland America Line said, adding it’s aware of the reports about Thailand’s refusal. “We know this is confusing for our guests and their families and we greatly appreciate their patience.”

I can understand how despair can set in when hope is dashed. Ive never been one to accept Helplessness. As of now our ship hasn't told us we are not going to Thailand to disembark. First time this morning laughter was heard that has again quieted #westerdam @HALcruises

In a blog post Monday evening, the operator announced the ship was headed to Laem Chabang port -- about 50 miles east of Bangkok -- where passengers would disembark and end their journey on Feb. 13.

The ship’s plight is adding to Carnival’s woes sparked by the virus.

The Westerdam departed Hong Kong on Feb. 1 on a 14-day Taiwan and Japan cruise. The 1,455 guests, traveling with 802 crew members, were originally scheduled to disembark at Yokohama Feb. 15, according to blog posts on Holland America Line’s website. The ship has sufficient fuel and food provisions to last until the end of the voyage, according to an earlier Holland America Line blog post on its website. While passengers wait for news, Christina Kerby said she’s been killing time learning how to fold bath towels into decorative shapes. The Northern California resident kept her posts upbeat and humorous: Here’s a science fiction plot line for ya. Amidst a global epidemic that wipes out the earth’s population, it’s up to the people aboard one cruise ship- the only safe place on earth- to repopulate the planet. **Passengers onboard the #Westerdam begin eyeing each other nervously**

The South gets soaked! 17 MILLION are on flood alert as slow moving storm dumps rain from Texas to North Carolina and six inches of snow is expected in the Great Lakes and New England

The slow-moving storm system will continue dropping rain on the south through the middle of the week

Due to an already saturated soil, flash flooding and washed out roads will be a concern for millions this week

Meanwhile a band of snow will hit the Great Lakes and New England through Friday, forecasters have said

By Keith Griffith For Dailymail.com and Associated Press Published: 01:12 EST, 12 February 2020 | Updated: 11:19 EST, 12 February 2020

A slow-moving storm system threatens millions of people with flooding in the Deep South, while up to six inches of snow is forecast for parts of the Great Lakes and New England. The National Weather Service on Tuesday issued flood alerts for a region stretching from east Texas to Tennessee and North Carolina, covering some 17 million people at risk of flooding. The slow-moving system could drop an additional two to three inches of rain into Wednesday on already-saturated ground, raising the risk of floods, the NWS said. In Tennessee, a hillside collapsed, roads were flooded and rivers were rising on Tuesday after a day of heavy rains, and in Mississippi a dam threatened to fail. The National Weather Service said minor to moderate flooding was expected from central Mississippi to north Georgia following downpours. The Tennessee River was predicted to crest about 7 feet (2.1 meters) above flood level at Perryville, Tennessee, on Sunday. Near Great Smoky Mountains National Park in eastern Tennessee, tons of rock and soil slid off a 70-foot (21-meter) hillside and blocked the northbound side of a U.S. 441 spur linking the tourist towns of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, the National Park Service said. At least 45 dump truck loads will be required to clear the road, officials estimated, but no injuires were reported. Multiple roads were covered with water or washed out because of rainfall that exceeded 5 inches in spots across central Alabama, and forecasters said totals could reach 6 inches by nightfall. Schools opened late or closed in parts of Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana because of flash flooding. A flood watch stretched from eastern Texas to Mississippi, and parts of Alabama were under flood warnings. North of Birmingham in Cullman, the sheriff's office said Deputy Adam Clark and his police dog were badly injured in a wreck during heavy rains overnight. The cause of the crash was under investigation. In eastern Mississippi, officials in Starkville said the water at Oktibbeha County Lake had once again reached a critical level just weeks after heavy rains caused a mudslide that put the earthen dam in danger of failing. Pumps had been used to lower the lake level by about eight feet since mid-January, but officials said the water had risen to an even higher than before because of recent storms. 'It has risen over 8.5 feet from our low elevation during pumping and continues to rise,' said a statement by Kristen Campanella, emergency management director in Oktibbeha County. Officials also were monitoring the site of a potential dam failure in Yazoo County, where the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency said a 40-acre lake in a subdivision was leaking around a culvert and washing away dirt, threatening four homes and a church. Five homes were evacuated after a levee breach in Leake. Elsewhere in Mississippi, 25 homes had been damaged and four people were hurt in wrecks caused by vehicles hydroplaning on wet roads, according to the state. The damage was worst in Yazoo, where a dozen people were displaced from homes. In addition, the National Weather Service confirmed Tuesday that an EF-1 tornado touched down Monday about 2.5 miles northwest of Piave, Mississippi, in Greene County. The twister caused minor roof damage and uprooted several trees, the weather agency said. The Tennessee Valley region has received 550 per cent of its normal rainfall during the past seven days, James Everett, senior manager of the Tennessee Valley Authority's River Forecast Center, said in a briefing. Rainfall averaged around 6 inches across the valley, but some places got as much as nine inches. 'We're getting a brief break in rainfall today, but we expect it to pick up tomorrow through Thursday,' Everett said. To manage all of the water, the TVA will continue storing water in large mountain reservoirs to help reduce flooding downstream, Everett said. The agency plans to adjust its strategy for water storage and flows depending on how much more water falls on the already saturated ground, he said. Isolated tornadoes and winds in excess of 60mph are possible in some areas of the South after nightfall Wednesday, the National Weather Service said. With the weather system moving eastward, West Virginia Governor Jim Justice instructed emergency officials to be ready for flooding in addition to high water that already had led to school closures in the state.  Meanwhile, the same system threatens to disrupt air travel and make roads dangerous farther north. Winter weather alerts are in affect from Kansas City to Syracuse, New York. On Wednesday, an area of snow, or a rain-and-snow mixture, is possible from north-central Oklahoma northeast as far as western Pennsylvania. Less than six inches of total snow is predicted for most other areas from the Texas Panhandle to the Midwest. However some six-plus-inch totals are possible from central Illinois, central Indiana and northern Ohio into the higher elevations of upstate New York and central New England.

How Many 'Super Spreaders' Are On The Loose With Millions Escaping Wuhan Before The Lockdown And Experts Now Warning 60% Of The Global Population Might Eventually Be Infected?

Preparing To Survive TEOTWAWKI With No Life Saving Medications

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die February 11, 2020

On Monday in this ANP story titled "Bioweapons Expert Warns ANP: The 'Nazi Death Science Biological Warfare Work' Going On In America MUST Be Stopped! This Is What YOU Can Do To Help Protect America - In A 'Worst Case Scenario', Coronavirus Could Collapse America's Heathcare System" we reported that we'd be taking a look at some alternatives to some of the major medications that Americans use with coronavirus a threat to the world's pharmaceutical supply chain and China supplying the majority of drugs in America so we'll be doing that in this story as well as taking a look at some very concerning news out in the last few days. While the mainstream media and others have called this coronavirus possibly being a bioweapon a 'conspiracy theory', time will certainly tell. With a new warning from an expert that coronavirus could eventually infect 60% of the world's population another sign of just how far this outbreak could spread, we get more proof from this story over at Focus Taiwan that we're really only seeing the 'tip of the iceberg' in the number of coronavirus deaths and just how lethal this 'virus' really is from medical experts who've been studying the outbreak there. And the following paragraphs from their story both confirm what we had reported in this January 30th ANP story titled "Weathering The Coming Storm: How To Overcome Our Own Bodies Immune System's Attempts To Kill Us - Understanding The Deadly 'Cytokine Storm" as well as add a chilling new dimension to reports of people with the disease being cured; it often comes back with a frightening vengeance! From Focus Taiwan.: Experts have blamed a form of systemic inflammatory response syndrome called "cytokine storm" for killing some novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV)-infected patients who were not very sick in the early stage of infection but eventually died of multiple organ failure, according to Chinese media reports. The epidemic, which started mid-December in Wuhan, in China's Hubei Province, had claimed more than 800 lives in China as of Feb. 8, including Li Wenliang (李文亮), a 34-year-old ophthalmologist at Wuhan Central Hospital who tried to issue the first warning about the deadly coronavirus outbreak late last year but was silenced by the Chinese authorities. Li was confirmed Feb. 1 to have been infected after treating a patient who later tested positive for coronavirus. He died on Friday. While most victims have been middle-aged, elderly or suffering from chronic disease according to official Chinese data, Li's death, as well as that of a 39-year-old man in Hong Kong, drew media attention as the epidemic has attacked more than 37,000 people in 28 countries around the world. According to Chinese media reports, Zhong Ming (鍾鳴), a physician at the department of critical care medicine of Zhongshan Hospital in Shanghai, warned that in some novel coronavirus cases, patients who developed only moderate symptoms at the onset of the disease later fell seriously ill and died of multiple organ failure. He termed the condition a "storm of inflammations"   And with this story over at the Guardian reporting that a 'super spreader' of the virus had unknowingly infected at least 11 others in 3 different countries, a perfect example of how quickly this disease can spread without people even knowing they had it, how many more such 'super spreaders' are now on the loose across the world with even the Associated Press reporting millions had escaped Wuhan before the quarantine was launched? As mentioned previously above, this new story over at the Guardian is absolutely mind-blowing with a coronavirus expert warning that 60% of the world's population could eventually be infected by the 'virus', hinting at something not only straight out of our worst nightmares but helping us to understand why the US Department of Defense is now setting up mass quarantine camps across the US as Mac Slavo reports in this new story over at SHTFPlan. It appears that things are about to 'get real'. (ANP EMERGENCY FUNDRAISER! Following Susan Duclos' recent heart attacks and hospitalization, All News Pipeline will need some financial help in the days and weeks ahead. So if you like stories like this, please consider donating to ANP to help keep us in this 'Info-war' for America at a time of systematic censorship and widespread corruption.) Once again reminding us of the movie "12 Monkeys" where one person intentionally flew with a killer virus to numerous cities to infect and eventually kill off most of the world's population with a 'novel virus', just imagine how much damage might be caused all across the planet with over a million people from Wuhan 'on the loose', with authorities having no idea where they have gone! And with reports coming out now from CNN of all places that that the first US evacuee infected with coronavirus was mistakenly released from the hospital because the initial tests performed on him didn't detect the virus, how many more such cases are there across the US, of people returning from China being tested with those tests not detecting the virus even though the person might be infected? Mike Adams over at Natural News had warned near the beginning of this outbreak that the proper tests to detect it weren't available due to the numerous mutations it was going through and now he reports that between 50% and 70% of the test kits rushed out to detect coronavirus are failing! So how many positive coronavirus patients are walking around right now in America freely due to inaccurate test results, possibly spreading the disease to others who'll do the same with many not showing symptoms for up to 14 days? Before we go on, two recent stories from the South China Morning Post give us the latest looks at what's happening there as China's capital city of Beijing is locked down and as we see in the gif image above taken from this 2nd SCMP story titled "Coronavirus: Everything You Need To Know In A Visual Explainer", the prices of medical supplies such as masks are skyrocketing and the lines are incredibly long. And if nothing else, seeing that gif image gives us every reason to avoid the cities and mass population centers all across America, if possible, while this beast is on the loose. Before we continue below, we must emphasize here that we ARE NOT medical doctors, we're simply looking out for what we as Americans may have to do should TEOTWAWKI unfold here in America and Americans dependent upon crucial medication no longer able to get their medications.

With 'a storm of inflammations' from a cytokine storm killing many victims of coronavirus according to medical doctors, with their bodies own immune systems quite literally attacking and killing them, we'll first take a look here at natural ways to deal with inflammation. As Natural News had reported in this 2018 story, scientists have confirmed that inflammation is the cause of almost all diseases and they had some great suggestions on how to help treat that inflammation naturally. ANP is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program. Fortunately, inflammation can be avoided or prevented in natural ways. One of these is by including naturally powerful, anti-inflammatory herbs. These include turmeric, ginger, Manuka honey, green tea, white willow bark, olive leaf extract, cloves, chili peppers, black peppers, frankincense, bark from maritime pine tree, cat’s claw, pepper, rosemary and cinnamon. These herbs will help reverse chronic inflammation in the body very fast. Another natural way to fight chronic inflammation is by adhering to an anti-inflammatory diet. In this diet, refined sugar and processed oils like corn and canola oil, are eliminated as these two things worsen chronic inflammation. Including fresh organic fruits and vegetables, seeds, beans, sprouts, whole grains, and healthy oils that are rich in omega 3s – coconut oil or hemp seed oil, helps in reducing inflammation. According to this 2017 story over at Medscapes titled "From Folk to Pharma: Natural Remedies That Became Medications", up to 25% or more of 'big pharma' medications were derived from plants and other natural sources. With 97% of America's antibiotics coming from China according to this story over at ABC 7, we're going to be starting here with all-natural antibiotics, with garlic and honey absolutely being our favorites here at ANP, having used them numerous times to help get rid of tooth infections, etc. And as this story at Natural News had reported, garlic is not only 'antibiotic' but can kill off parasites, viruses, bacterial infections, is anti-fungal and is a great source of antioxidants so garlic is absolutely our #1 go-to though as this story over at Medical News Today reports, there are a number of other all-natural antibiotics available as well. This extended excerpt from their story. The scientific jury is still out concerning natural antibiotics. While people have used remedies like these for hundreds of years, most treatments have not been thoroughly tested. However, some show promising results under medical review, and further studies are underway. With an ongoing increase in drug-resistant bacteria, scientists are looking to nature when developing new medications.

Here, we examine the science behind seven natural antibiotics.

1. Garlic Cultures across the world have long recognized garlic for its preventive and curative powers. Research has found that garlic can be an effective treatment against many forms of bacteria, including Salmonella and Escherichia coli (E. coli). Garlic has even been considered for use against multi-drug resistant tuberculosis.

2. Honey Since the time of Aristotle, honey has been used as an ointment that helps wounds to heal and prevents or draws out infection. Healthcare professionals today have found it helpful in treating chronic wounds, burns, ulcers, bedsores, and skin grafts. For example, results of a study from 2016 demonstrate that honey dressings can help to heal wounds. The antibacterial effects of honey are usually attributed to its hydrogen peroxide content. However, manuka honey fights off bacteria, though it has a lower hydrogen peroxide content. A 2011 study reported that the best-known type of honey inhibits approximately 60 kinds of bacteria. It also suggests that honey successfully treats wounds infected with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Antibacterial properties aside, honey may help wounds to heal by providing a protective coating that fosters a moist environment. (ANP: We'll swear by Manuka Honey as well from personal experience as being an excellent antibiotic.)

3. Ginger The scientific community also recognizes ginger as a natural antibiotic. Several studies, including one published in 2017, have demonstrated ginger's ability to fight many strains of bacteria. Researchers are also exploring ginger's power to combat seasickness and nausea and to lower blood sugar levels.

4. Echinacea Native American and other traditional healers have used echinacea for hundreds of years to treat infections and wounds. Researchers are beginning to understand why. A study published in the Journal of Biomedicine and Biotechnology reports that extract of Echinacea purpurea can kill many different kinds of bacteria, including Streptococcus pyogenes (S. pyogenes). S. pyogenes is responsible for strep throat, toxic shock syndrome, and the "flesh-eating disease" known as necrotizing fasciitis. Echinacea may also fight inflammation associated with bacterial infection. It is available to purchase in health stores or online.

5. Goldenseal Goldenseal is usually consumed in tea or capsules to treat respiratory and digestive problems. However, it may also combat bacterial diarrhea and urinary tract infections. In addition, results of a recent study support the use of goldenseal to treat skin infections. In a lab, goldenseal extracts were used to prevent MRSA from damaging tissue. A person taking prescription medications should check with a doctor before taking goldenseal, as this supplement can cause interference. Goldenseal also contains berberine, an important component of natural antibiotics. This alkaloid is not safe for infants, or women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Goldenseal capsules are available to purchase in health stores or online.

6. Clove Clove has traditionally been used in dental procedures. Research is now finding that clove water extract may be effective against many different kinds of bacteria, including E. coli.

7. Oregano Some believe that oregano boosts the immune system and acts as an antioxidant. It may have anti-inflammatory properties. While researchers have yet to verify these claims, some studies show that oregano is among the more effective natural antibiotics, particularly when it is made it into an oil. And while we'll re-emphasize here once again that we are not medical doctors and this content is not intended to be a substitute for medical advice, should coronavirus along with SHTF arrive here in earnest in America and our supply lines for medications are cut off as some are now warning may happen, people will be doing whatever they possibly can to survive so we'll be taking a look in part 2 of this story at attempting to replace other life saving medications that millions of Americans use daily.

In the 3rd video below, Mike Adams identifies 3 molecules that might help to inhibit coronavirus replication as also reported in this new Natural News story while in the final video below, Adams argues why it's time to start thinking beyond 'containment' with all signs emerging this could get very ugly, very quickly as we're now seeing in China.

Meanwhile In Brazil... Scientists Discover 'Puzzling' Virus Of Unknown Origins Without Recognizable Genes

by Tyler Durden Mon, 02/10/2020 - 23:45

The findings of a new virus by Brazilian researchers have 'puzzled' the scientific community, consisting of unrecognizable genes, a new study revealed, published in bioRxiv. The "mysterious" virus was discovered in amoebas in an artificial lake in Brazil has been considered the world's smallest lifeforms, because none can survive and reproduce without a host, some scientists have questioned whether they should even be considered living creatures. Researcher, Jônatas Abrahão, a virologist at the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, called the new virus "yaravirus," a character from Brazilian mythology that means "mother of all waters." When Abrahão and his team sequenced the new virus genome, they discovered that 90% of the DNA sequence was from unknown origins. Elodie Ghedin of New York University, who sequences viruses in sewage, said the finding of yaravirus isn't surprising. Ghedin said 95% of viruses in sewage have "no matches to reference genomes [in databases]," adding that, in Abrahão's case, new viruses are found all the time.  Researchers were unclear about the impact of the new virus on human health. Future tests could include making those connections. The approach "is an important tool to learn the distribution of hundreds or thousands of viral genomes," Abrahão said. Curtis Suttle, an environmental virologist at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, said that some viruses that are found within humans keep us healthy, and others are essential for keeping ecosystems humming smoothly. "We could not survive without [them]," Suttle said. "There are enormous benefits to the discovery and characterization of viruses." The recent finding by Abrahão and his team shows just how much modern science lacks in their characterization of viruses found on Earth. This is currently the case in Nigeria, where the government has warned about a "strange epidemic" of a mystery virus that has claimed the life of 15 people in less than one week. The outbreak of coronavirus in China and across the world has also shown just how underprepared governments and the scientific community are to emerging infectious diseases.

Japan is rattled by 5.2-magnitude earthquake near Fukushima

The earthquake struck around 20 miles off the coast of Fukushima province

Witnesses said they had felt a 10-second long shake during the tremor today

No tsunami warning has been put in place by Japan's meteorological agency

By Tim Stickings For Mailonline Published: 06:35 EST, 12 February 2020 | Updated: 07:17 EST, 12 February 2020

Japan was rattled by a 5.2-magnitude earthquake off the coast of Fukushima province today.

The quake struck just over 50 miles from the city of Fukushima where the nuclear disaster occurred in 2011. Witnesses said they had felt a 10-second long shake during the tremor at around 7.30pm local time. No tsunami warning has been put in place by Japan's meteorological agency. The US Geological Survey said today's earthquake had struck at a depth of around 50 miles under the sea. One witness told earthquake monitoring service EMSC that the quake produced a 'weak but long shake' lasting about 10 seconds. Another said their heater had moved around on its four wheels while making a sound. Officials in Fukushima prefecture warned residents that there could be aftershocks and directed them to official public safety advice. Energy company TEPCO, which runs four nuclear power plants in the prefecture, said it was awaiting further information about the earthquake's impact. In 2011, Fukushima was the site of the world's worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl when a 9.1-magnitude earthquake caused a tsunami. The wave flooded the nuclear power plant and caused a massive meltdown, spewing out radiation that forced 160,000 people to flee their homes. Japan is located on the Pacific 'Ring of Fire' and is one of the world's most earthquake-prone countries.

The Coronavirus Outbreak Could Affect the Availability (and Cost) of THESE Essential Products from China

by Daisy Luther

The effects of the Wuhan coronavirus could end up being far more widespread than the illness itself. It is already affecting China’s economy, potentially to the tune of $60 billion. Other predictions are even less optimistic, suggesting that if the outbreak isn’t rapidly contained, Chinese banks could face a $6 trillion disaster. And the fallout won’t stop with China. The United States and China are intimately linked economically. The coronavirus outbreak could directly affect our economy, as well as the availability of many essential products that are made in China. How the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak could affect economies Zero Hedge reports that it has “all the hallmarks of a true Black Swan event.” If you’re not familiar with that term, it is a market-related term that describes a severe and unexpected event that cannot be predicted beforehand but could potentially cause catastrophic damage to the economy. (You can learn more about the term “black swan” here.) A report on GnS suggests that it isn’t just the US and China that could suffer economically. Tuomas Malinen writes that this could trigger a global economic catastrophe. The first shoe to drop outside China is likely to be the export-and China-dependent Eurozone. And, as we have warned on several occasions, many European banks will be unable to withstand a recession (see also Q-Review 3/2019 and Q-Review 4/2019). When the European banking crisis, driven by the ensuing recession, resumes it will “go-global” fast as Europe holds the biggest concentration of globally systemically important banks, or G-SIBs. It is also unlikely that hyper-valued U.S. stock markets will be able to endure the impact of a global recession. This is even more the case if the Fed tapers its term repo-operations in February, as planned. Global recession, a European banking crisis and a crash in the U.S. capital markets will produce a global economic collapse which will almost certainly overwhelm any attempts—massive and coordinated as they may be—to turn the tide by over-stretched central banks and over-indebted governments. This is, why the coronavirus outbreak should be treated for what it is: a potential harbinger of human and economic calamity. (source) Currently, at least, global stocks are rising in optimism of a slowdown of the spread of the virus, but the Federal Reserve is monitoring the risk of economic disruption. What does this mean for us? All this market stuff is a whole bunch of big numbers that don’t feel very personally relatable. But that doesn’t mean we won’t suffer financially as a result of the outbreak. Getting down to nuts and bolts, how will this affect us here in the United States personally? There are a few different ways. First of all, we import a crapton of stuff from China. The cost of goods could go up as China attempts to recover from its own economic crisis. The availability of goods could decrease since 400 million people are currently locked down in China. It’s a pretty safe guess that manufacturing is not ticking along as it has been in the past. And it goes even deeper than that. Even products that are “made in China” have components that are made in the United States. A lot of the research and development is done in the states, and of course, the retail aspect also takes place here. In fact, 56% of what you pay for an item “made in China” goes to American workers and businesses. And with the latest news that the virus can live up to 9 days on surfaces and that the actual incubation period is 24 days and not 14, well, bringing stuff in from China no longer seems like such a great idea now, does it?

So you can see how the ripple effect could cause a lot of problems on our side of the ocean. Here are the products we currently import from China Last April, the US and China were involved in a trade war that resulted in tariffs being added to products we were importing from China. At that time, my friend Marilyn Matthews compiled a very thorough list of the products that could see a price increase due to import tariffs. That list is useful today in that we can use it to predict the products that could soon increase in price, be in short supply, or even be completely unavailable. You can use this list to foresee the things that could become a problem. Some things you could stock up on – like medications – but others are items you won’t know you need until you actually need them – like parts to repair your furnace.

Tires, tire retreading products, all rubber products including but not limited to stoppers, caps, lids, hoses, belts, tubes, pipes, etc. This will affect everything that rolls or is contained.

If it flies it’s on the list as well as the parts to repair or assemble

If it floats it’s on the list.

Satellites of all kinds and all parts

And it isn’t just mechanical goods and electronics. A large number of medications and medical supplies will be affected:

Coenzyme Q10 (ubidecarenone) heart health supplement increases oxygen

Quinone drugs including Malaria testing kits

Aromatic drugs derived from carboxylic acids with additional oxygen function, and their derivatives

Appliances identifiable for ostomy use

That’s a whole lot of stuff – and much of it is incredibly vital, like medications, medical supplies, and essential components of things that we use every day.

Conclusion It’s impossible to say whether the items in the list above will become unavailable, just like it’s impossible to truly predict how far and fast the Wuhan coronavirus will spread. Like the virus, we just don’t know enough yet and the situation is rapidly evolving. If nothing else, your awareness of the possible economic and supply ramifications is a tool in your arsenal. Preparing for the economic fallout is just as important as preparing for the virus itself. You won’t be caught totally by surprise like most of the other folks in this country. At this point, 2020 has certainly been full of surprises. It would be difficult not to wonder with a certain amount of dread, what’s next?

Coronavirus-Novel

Data FAQs Immunization Investigation Reporting Resources

For current 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) guidance documents and information please see the DSHS Novel Coronavirus website: https://www.dshs.texas.gov/coronavirus/ .

Disease Condition

Novel coronavirus causing severe acute respiratory disease.

Organism

Two novel coronaviruses have been identified—SARS coronavirus (SARS-CoV) and MERS coronavirus (MERS-CoV).

SARS-CoV (the coronavirus that causes Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, or SARS) was first recognized in China in 2002, and it caused a worldwide outbreak from 2002 to 2003. Since 2004, there have not been any known cases of SARS-CoV infection reported anywhere in the world.

MERS-CoV (the coronavirus that causes Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, or MERS) was first reported in Saudi Arabia in 2012, and it continues to circulate and cause illness. Between 2012 and June 30, 2018, 2,229 MERS-CoV cases has been reported to the World Health Organization (WHO), 83% of whom were reported by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. In total, cases have been reported from 27 countries in the Middle East, North Africa, Europe, the United States, and Asia.

In addition to novel coronaviruses, there are four “seasonal” (non-novel) coronaviruses—alpha coronaviruses 229E and NL63, and beta coronaviruses OC43 and HKU1—that commonly circulate and that most people get some time in their lives. In contrast to the novel coronaviruses, seasonal coronaviruses typically cause mild to moderate upper-respiratory illness of short duration.

Transmission

The ways that common human coronaviruses spread have not been studied very much. It is likely that human coronaviruses spread from an infected person to others through–

The air by coughing and sneezing,

Close personal contact, such as touching or shaking hands,

Touching an object or surface with germs on it, then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes before washing your hands, or

Rarely, fecal contamination.

MERS-CoV has repeatedly entered the human population via direct or indirect contact with infected dromedary camels in the Arabian Peninsula. Limited, non-sustained human-to-human spread mainly in health care settings continues to occur, primarily in Saudi Arabia. The risk of exported cases to areas outside of the Middle East due to travel remains significant. There is no evidence of sustained human-to-human spread in the community.

Symptoms

Based on current information, the time between when a person is exposed to MERS-CoV and when they start to have symptoms is usually 5 or 6 days, but can range from 2-14 days. Most people confirmed to have MERS-CoV infection have had severe acute respiratory illness with symptoms of fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Some people also had gastrointestinal symptoms including diarrhea and nausea or vomiting. For many people with MERS, more severe complications followed, such as pneumonia and kidney failure. About 3 to 4 out of every 10 people reported with MERS have died. Most of the people who died had an underlying medical condition. Some infected people had mild symptoms (such as cold-like symptoms) or no symptoms at all; they recovered. Based on what researchers know so far, people with pre-existing medical conditions—such as diabetes, cancer, and chronic lung, heart, and kidney disease—may be more likely to become infected with MERS, or have a severe case. Individuals with weakened immune systems are also at higher risk for getting MERS or having a severe case.

Prevention

Currently, there are no vaccines to prevent coronavirus infections, including infections with MERS-CoV. General preventive measures to protect yourself from respiratory illness—including novel coronavirus disease—including the following:

Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds, and help young children do the same. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, and then throw the tissue in the trash.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Avoid personal contact—such as kissing, or sharing cups or eating utensils—with sick people.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces such as toys and doorknobs.

In addition to the measures listed above, the following preventive measures are recommended for travelers to countries in the Arabian Peninsula:

Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Germs spread this way.

Avoid close contact with sick people.

Be sure you are up-to-date with all of your shots and, if possible, see your healthcare provider at least 4–6 weeks before travel to get any additional shots.

Visit CDC’s Travelers’ Health website for more information on healthy travel.

Practice general hygiene measures, including regular handwashing before and after touching animals, and avoid contact with sick animals.

For more information about World Health Organization (WHO) general precautions for anyone visiting farms, markets, barns, or other places where animals are present, please see http://www.who.int/csr/disease/coronavirus_infections/faq/en/ .

People who are traveling to provide health care services in the Arabian Peninsula should review CDC's recommendations for infection control of confirmed or suspected MERS cases.

Avoid contact with camels if you are at a higher risk of severe illness.

If you are sick:

Cover your mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, and throw the used tissue in the trash.

Avoid contact with other people to keep from infecting them. This might mean delaying your travel until you are well.

Call a doctor if you develop a fever and symptoms of lower respiratory illness, such as cough or shortness of breath, within 14 days after traveling from countries in or near the Arabian Peninsula. You should tell the doctor about your recent travel before you go in for an appointment.

Tell people who have been in close contact with you to monitor their health for 14 days after the last time they were around you.

They should call a doctor and tell them about your illness and travel history and their current symptoms.

If you get sick while you are traveling, see Getting Health Care Abroad for information about how to locate medical services overseas.

Persons who are confirmed to have, or being evaluated for, MERS-CoV infection should do the following to prevent transmission of illness:

Stay home, except for getting medical care (if needed)

Separate yourself from other people in your home

Call ahead before visiting your doctor

Wear a facemask

Cover your coughs and sneezes

Wash your hands

Avoid sharing household items

Monitor your symptoms

Recent Texas Trends

No cases of novel coronavirus (including MERS-CoV) have been identified in Texas residents.

Public health departments continue to work with healthcare providers to identify, evaluate, and test persons with suspected novel coronavirus disease. Three Texas public health laboratories are able to perform testing for MERS-CoV on persons who meet certain illness and exposure criteria as defined by CDC.

US celebrates withdrawal of UN Security Council resolution against peace plan

After Palestinian-spearheaded measure is pulled, Trump official says the world body has ‘demonstrated that the old way of doing things is over’

By Eric Cortellessa and Raphael Ahren 11 February 2020, 9:18 pm

WASHINGTON — After a rancorous UN Security Council debate Tuesday, during which every member nation except the United States and Israel distanced themselves from President Donald Trump’s peace plan, the White House celebrated the withdrawal of a resolution rejecting the proposal. The administration reportedly put heavy pressure on critics to drop the measure, introduced by Indonesia and Tunisia, and diplomats gave up when it risked not having the necessary nine out of 15 votes to secure its passage and necessitate a US veto. “By not putting forward a polarizing resolution, the United Nations Security Council demonstrated that the old way of doing things is over,” a senior Trump official told The Times of Israel. “For the first time on the Israeli-Palestinian issue, the Council was willing to think outside the conventional box, and not reflexively fall back on the calcified Palestinian position, which has only allowed the failed status quo to continue.” Palestinian officials insist that they may still propose a resolution at the Security Council, possibly later this week. The text’s initial draft, which said the plan violated international law, had been softened to say it departs from accepted parameters of an Israeli-Palestinian settlement. “The Palestinians’ inability to put forward a vote tonight shows the change that the international community has gone through in recent years,” Ron Prosor, a former Israeli ambassador to the UN, told The Times of Israel on Tuesday. Two years ago, the Palestinians easily recruited many countries willing to vote in favor of a resolution condemning the US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The US vetoed the decision. “This time they don’t have nine countries behind them,” Prosor said. “It shows that countries have different priorities now and they put their own interests first. Sure, they will probably go to the General Assembly where they have an automatic majority to pass a resolution, but the majority might not be as large as it was after the Jerusalem declaration.” At Tuesday’s Security Council session, representatives of all 15 member states spoke, all of whom — except the Israeli and the American envoys — declared their respective support for the traditionally accepted parameters of an Israeli-Palestinian peace accord. Some welcomed the American initiative, saying it injected a new impetus into the stalled peace process. Still, all made clear that their positions have not changed. “Germany remains firmly committed to a negotiated two-state solution, based on 4 June 1967 lines, with equivalent land swaps as may be agreed between the parties, with Jerusalem as future capital of both states,” said Jürgen Schulz, Germany’s deputy ambassador to the UN. The UK’s ambassador, Karen Pierce, said that Britain’s longstanding position have not changed: “We support a negotiated settlement leading to a safe and secure Israel living alongside a viable and sovereign Palestinian state, based on 1967 borders with agreed land swaps, Jerusalem as the shared capital of both states, and a just, fair, agreed and realistic settlement for refugees,” she said. Breaking with past US administrations, the Trump plan envisions the creation of a Palestinian state in about 70 percent of the West Bank, a small handful of neighborhoods in East Jerusalem, most of Gaza and some areas of southern Israel — if the Palestinians recognize Israel as a Jewish state, disarm Hamas and other terror groups in the coastal enclave, and fulfill other conditions. The plan also allows Israel to annex settlements, grants the Jewish state sovereignty over the Jordan Valley and overriding security control west of the Jordan River, and bars Palestinian refugees from settling in Israel. The European members of the council all expressed their deep concern over Israel’s plan to apply sovereignty over large swaths of the West Bank. “The annexation of any part of the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, constitutes a breach of international law, undermines the viability of the two-state solution and challenges the prospects for just, comprehensive and lasting peace,” the Belgian foreign minister said, speaking on behalf of his own county, as well as Estonia, France Germany and Poland. “In line with international law and relevant UN Security Council resolutions, we do not recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the territories occupied since 1967.” The representatives of Indonesia, Tunisia, South Africa, Vietnam, China, Russia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, the UK, and the Dominican Republic, in their respective statements likewise insisted that the basis for peace talks must remain the two-state solution leading to a Palestinian state on the 1967-lines, with mutually agreed swaps, and Jerusalem as shared capital of Palestine and Israel.  The senior Trump official said that Washington was “optimistic that countries are keeping an open mind with regard to our Vision for Peace, and are willing to have an honest and open discussion on it as a possible basis to restart negotiations for a realistic two-state solution. As we’ve said all along, our plan is the start of a process, not the end.” Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas firmly rejected the US plan before the Council on Tuesday, but said he would be willing to open negotiations with Israel under the patronage of the Quartet and on the basis of international resolutions. The Quartet is composed of the US, Russia, the UN and the European Union. “I came to all of you today to affirm the Palestinian position which rejects the American-Israeli deal,” Abbas said. “It legalized what is illegal: settlement building and confiscation and annexation of Palestinian lands. I affirm, here, that it is necessary that this deal or any part of it not be considered an international reference for negotiations.”

Abbas: Palestinian state in Trump’s plan is ‘like Swiss cheese’

Danon says Abbas would go to Jerusalem, not New York, if he really wanted to negotiate peace.

By LAHAV HARKOV FEBRUARY 11, 2020 19:23

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas unequivocally rejected the Trump administration’s peace plan in the UN Security Council on Tuesday.

“This plan should not be considered an international reference for negotiations. It is an Israeli-American preemptive plan to put an end to the question of Palestine,” he argued. Abbas said of the plan allowing for a demilitarized Palestinian state on 70% of the West Bank: “This plan violates international legitimacy… It annuls the legitimacy of Palestinian rights, our right to self-determination, freedom and independence of our own state.” The Palestinian Authority delayed their vote on a UNSC resolution against the US plan, but the meeting continued as scheduled. The delay came amid US pressure to soften the language of the resolution towards the US and Israel. There has been speculation that the delay was a way of pulling the resolution because it lacked the requisite support of nine members for passage, as several countries were expected to abstain. Even if it had passed, the US had been expected to veto the original text put forward last week by UNSC members Tunisia and Indonesia. In his address, Abbas referred to the part of the plan allowing Israel to annex 30% of the West Bank, saying: “It legitimized what is illegal, settlements and confiscation of land and annexation of Palestinian land.” The plan is “the entrenchment of occupation and confiscation of occupying force by military regime… strengthening the apartheid regime,” he stated. Abbas called the map in US President Donald Trump’s plan “like Swiss cheese,” referring to Israeli enclaves within the Palestinian state and vice-versa. The PA president also lamented that according to the plan, “Jerusalem is no longer under the sovereignty of the state of Palestine,” although it never was and such a state never existed. “Jerusalem is occupied land. Who has the right to give this as a gift to one state or another? We came before you,” Abbas said. Abbas also held up a series of maps commonly used by anti-Israel groups to claim Israel has stolen land, which falsely claims the Ottoman Empire and the British Mandate were a Palestinian state and that Israel is built on land that belonged to the state that did not exist. As violence against Israelis roiled the West Bank and Jerusalem, Abbas commended those who “took to the streets by thousands and hundreds of thousands in the West Bank and Gaza, although it’s freezing outside.” Abbas argued that the problem is not with Trump, but the “terrible advice” that he has received. He rejected the criticism of the US president's special adviser, Jared Kushner, who he called “the son-in-law,” for saying the Palestinians have missed opportunity after opportunity for peace. The PA president also called for the Palestinians and Israelis to be allowed to reach peace on their own, rather than it be imposed from the outside. “We have reached peace without the intervention of anyone, in Oslo. We were willing to commit to that agreement, until we reach a solution. However, they killed [former prime minister Yitzhak] Rabin,” Abbas said. He implied Rabin’s death was the reason the accords did not bring about peace, though Palestinian terrorists bombed 10 Israeli buses, killing 38 people, between when the Oslo Accords were signed and when Rabin was assassinated. Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon also called for direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, saying that Abbas is being disingenuous when he says he wants peace.  If Abbas was truly interested in peace, he wouldn’t be here, he would be in Jerusalem,” Danon said, referring to former Egyptian president Anwar Sadat speaking in the Knesset before signing a peace treaty with Israel. Abbas should “use this opportunity to start direct negotiations,” the ambassador stated. “Complaining instead of action – that is not leadership. Abbas says he wants sovereignty for the Palestinian people, but he has done everything to avoid it. The call for sovereignty has become a battle call, rather than an actual goal, a way to keep the conflict alive.” Danon accused the international community of encouraging Abbas’s “rejectionism” by way of their UN voting patterns and by calling for pre-1967 lines to be the basis of negotiations. “They apply preconditions that directly contradict previous agreements between the sides,” he said, pointing out that Israel and the PLO agreed in the past that future borders would be determined via negotiations. “Why should he negotiate for us, when you’re negotiating for him?” Danon also praised Trump’s “sane approach” in trying a different way to make peace and not “accept[ing] out-of-date concepts… [and] a formula that has failed for over 70 years.” “Even if you have criticism of the specifics of the plan should embrace its spirit, a new pragmatic approach to solving this conflict,” he stated. “Abbas refuses to be pragmatic [and] refuses to negotiate… Only when he steps down can Israel and the Palestinians step forward. He will never be a partner for real peace,” Danon concluded. Earlier, in remarks to the media, Danon accused Abbas of being “well-versed in the art of double-speak,” in that he will come to the UN and say he wants peace, while he “remains committed to incitement at home… encouraging Palestinian violence against Israelis.” The ambassadors of the EU countries in the UNSC – Belgium, Estonia, Germany and France – came out against the Trump plan in their statement prior to the meeting. They reiterated the EU’s commitment to transatlantic partnership and commended “efforts taken by the US towards resolving this conflict.” However, their statement said the EU “remains committed to a two-state solution based on 1967 borders with land swaps,” allowing for a “contiguous, viable state of Palestine living side-by-side [with Israel] in peace, sovereignty and material recognition.” “The US plan,” they added, “departs from these internationally recognized parameters.” They also expressed concern about Israeli plans to annex parts of the West Bank, saying that doing so would breach international law and make a two-state solution unviable. The US and Israel worked hard in recent days to ensure that the Palestinian resolution would not pass. “In recent days, great pressure has been brought to bear on council members. Those efforts bore fruit,” an Israeli source told The Jerusalem Post after the Palestinians’ resolution was pulled from Tuesday’s agenda The “Palestinians had realized they would not have much support, and they took it off the table,” the source added. It is still unclear if the matter will be brought back to the Security Council or to the General Assembly.

First US evacuee from China to develop coronavirus was MISTAKENLY released from San Diego hospital after initial test was negative as it becomes 13th case in the US as global death toll tops 1,000

An evacuee who landed in the US last week from Wuhan was confirmed to have coronavirus on Monday evening in San Diego, California

This marks the 13th confirmed case of coronavirus in the US

The patient was one of 232 American citizens flown from Wuhan to the US on a charter flight arranged by the State Department last week

Details on patient's gender and age are not yet known

The patient is being treated at the San Diego UC San Diego Medical Center

Hospital said the patient is 'doing well and has minimal symptoms'

Coronavirus has been confirmed in at least 24 countries and the global death toll stood at 1,013 by Monday evening

The first American rescued from Wuhan who has been confirmed to have coronavirus was mistakenly discharged from hospital after he initially tested negative. After the patient was airlifted from the locked-down Hubei province, China, last week, they were quarantined with 231 fellow evacuees at the University of California health department, where they will remain for two weeks. They and three others who were displaying possible signs of infection were bundled into isolation at San Diego hospital for immediate probing - but doctors dismissed the suspected symptoms as a false alarm and released them back to the quarantine compound. However, on Monday, the city's health authority announced that further testing revealed that this patient was suffering from coronavirus, marking the 13th case on United States soil. University of California, San Diego Health said in a statement: 'CDC officials advised San Diego Public Health that further testing revealed that one of the four patients tested positive. 'The confirmed positive patient was returned to UC San Diego Health for observation and isolation until cleared by the CDC for release.' The highly contagious virus has a 14-day incubation period of no visible symptoms where a carrier can still spread infection. Since the outbreak spawned in Wuhan late last year, it has infected over 42,000 and killed over 1,000 worldwide, the overwhelming majority of which in China. The American patient is being treated in isolation at the UC San Diego Medical Center in Hillcrest. The patient who tested positive is 'doing well and has minimal symptoms,' hospital officials confirmed to DailyMail.com. Last week, two planes arrived at MCAS Miramar with American evacuees from Wuhan, China, escaping the epicenter of the deadly fast-spreading virus. The first flight carrying 167 Americans landed on Wednesday February 5 and five of those passengers were hospitalized for coronavirus-like symptoms. A second plane carrying 65 more US citizens landed Friday morning after a stopover in Vancouver, British Columbia. They were all placed in a 14-day federal quarantine. No one else who is currently under evaluation for coronavirus from the flights that arrived at MCAS Miramar has tested positive, according to the CDC. At first four patients under evaluation were tested for coronavirus and their results came back negative on Sunday, San Diego Public Health officials said. Those four patients were then discharged and returned to quarantine. But on Monday, additional testing confirmed one of those four did in fact contract coronavirus. Another person quarantined at the base was also isolated at UC San Diego Medical Center for further evaluation on Monday. Monday's San Diego case is the first confirmed case in San Diego County since the deadly outbreak began. Seven of the US coronavirus cases are in California.

Coronavirus could infect SIXTY PER CENT per cent of the global population if it cannot be controlled, top Hong Kong medical official warns Professer Gabriel Leung said authorities need to establish the spread of the virus A one per cent death rate could result in hundreds of thousands of deaths There are 43,000 cases worldwide so far, with more than 42,000 in China By Luke Andrews For Mailonline Published: 04:45 EST, 11 February 2020 | Updated: 06:31 EST, 11 February 2020 

Coronavirus could infect more than 60 per cent of the global population if containment methods fail, a top Hong Kong medical official has warned. Professor Gabriel Leung, chair of public health medicine in the city, also said that even if the death rate reaches just one per cent, the potential spread means it could still kill thousands of people. There are more than 43,000 cases reported in the world so far, with more than 1,000 deaths due to the virus. Professor Gabriel Leung, chair of public health medicine in Hong Kong and pictured at the University of Hong Kong last month, made the comments on a visit to London There are more than 43,000 cases worldwide so far and more than 1,000 deaths Prof Leung told The Guardian during a visit to London that the priority now is to establish the size and shape of the ‘epidemic iceberg’. READ ALSO: Coronavirus labs to begin testing in Scotland - BBC News Most experts believe that each infected person has gone on to transmit the virus to around 2.5 people, giving an ‘attack rate’ of 60 to 80 per cent. The death rate, however, is thought to be much lower. Prof Leung expects it to be around one per cent once milder cases, that have not been diagnosed, are taken into account. ‘Is 60 to 80 per cent of the world’s population going to get infected?,’ he asked, ‘Maybe not. Maybe this virus will come in waves. ‘Maybe the virus is going to attenuate its lethality because it certainly doesn’t help it if it kills everybody in its path, because it will get killed as well.’ Even if the virus reaches just one per cent, many people could still die. Pictured above are emergency workers evacuating residents from public housing in Hong Kong After establishing the epidemic’s scale, he said they would then need to establish whether containment methods being used are effective at stopping the spread of the virus. Governments worldwide are currently focusing on containment to prevent the spread of the virus but, if it fails, this response will switch to mitigation. China locked-down cities infected by coronavirus, including Wuhan at the virus’s epicentre, in a desperate effort to stop the disease spreading. Cruise ships such as the Diamond Princess off the coast of Japan have been isolated after coronavirus cases were identified, and many countries have isolated travellers returning from Wuhan and other areas of China. There have been allegations that China has not accurately reported the spread of coronavirus and the number of people killed by it, making the virus’s ‘infection iceberg’ harder to figure out. Wuhan medic Jeisi Luo, not his real name, warned that there are likely many more infections than reported due to limited test kits and the fact that people are dying before they are diagnosed. Prof Leung pictured talking to journalists during a press conference in Hong Kong in January ‘When preliminary tests determine that a patient has a lung sickness, the nucleic acid test which detects the virus, cannot always be carried out because the waiting list is too long,’ he said. ‘The patient is therefore not diagnosed.’ Medics are instead dealing with the crisis by sending people home with medicine and advising them to ‘self-isolate’. Social media reports have also alleged that China’s body burning facilities in Wuhan are working flat out, suggesting that the death toll from the virus may be significantly higher than the country has reported.

End of Freedom of Speech or Stopping Discrimination? Switzerland Votes on Anti-Homophobia Law

Europe

14:01 GMT 09.02.2020Get short URL by Polina Strelnikova

The Alpine country is having a referendum on widening the legislation that prohibits discrimination or inciting hatred against any group on the basis of religion or ethnicity. It will ban denigrating gay people in text, images, or gestures. As opponents of the bill argue, it could censor free speech and open the way to legalising same-sex marriage. The Swiss have reportedly supported a bill that outlaws discrimination and fomenting hatred against gay people, dubbed the anti-homophobia legislation by its supporters and the “censorship law” by its opponents. According to the preliminary results, 62% voted to include the LGBTQ community in the existing legislation that bans discriminating people on ethnic or religious grounds, Nau.ch reports. The new law does not criminalise comments made in a family circle or among friends but outlaws the public denigration or discrimination of gay people or fomenting hatred against them in text, speech, images, or gestures. Jokes are said not to be banned, as well, however as long as they are off-colour. So the government insists that it will not hamper opinionated debates on same-sex marriage, for example. The results have prompted regret in the right-wing Swiss People's Party (SVP), which is the biggest political force in the country’s parliament and staunch opponents of the legislation. In their communiqué, dedicated to the results of the referendum, the SVP’s youth wing lamented that a “yes” to this anti-discrimination bill opens the door for "terrorism of the mind" and the "massive restriction of freedom of expression". Earlier similar fears were voiced in the Federal Democratic Union of Switzerland (EDU), whose platform is based on Christian values. Member Marc Frueh even dubbed the bill a "censorship law". In addition, one of the SVP’s local lawmakers in Geneva, Eric Bertinat, described the changes as a "part of an LGBT plan to slowly move towards same-sex marriage and medically assisted reproduction" for gay people. Resistance also came from gay rights campaigners. The group called "No to Special Rights!" insisted that there is no need for special protection for the LGBTQ community. However, apart from the SVP, all of the country’s major parties, including the Green, left-wing and centrists, supported a law that was passed by parliament in 2018. However, its opponents argued that it could end up censoring free thought and insisted on holding a referendum. As one of the supporters of the new law, founder of an association of gay teachers Jean-Pierre Sigrist, told AFP it would stop intolerance against gay people. He noted that he backs freedom of expression, "but not the freedom to say anything at all".

Why Jews have reason to fear in America

Opinion: Much of the rhetoric that is feeding the present day anti-Semitism is coming from the Left.

Joseph Frager, MD, 10/02/20 00:12

The 75th anniversary of the Liberation of Auschwitz was just highlighted and given special attention around the globe. Unfortunately, the lessons of the Holocaust have not sunk in. American Jews have a right to be frightened by the turn of events and the blatant acts of anti-Semitism that have increased exponentially. To make matters worse much of the rhetoric that is feeding the present day anti-Semitism is coming from the Left. The Democratic Party, whether it wants to admit it or not, is being held hostage by Alexandra Ocasio Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Elaine Taibi. The Democratic Debate held this past week in New Hampshire made it patently clear that the New Democratic Party has broken away from the traditional Democratic Party of yesteryear. Mr. Tom Steyer said he would reverse President Trump’s decision to move the Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Mr. Steyer, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren said they would put strong conditions on any military aid to Israel. Ms. Warren said, “Today, the continued expansion of Israeli settlements and the increasing normalization of proposals for Israel to annex parts or all of the West Bank are the most immediate dangers to the two-state solution.” Elizabeth Warren went a lot further at a separate function on 2/6 when she nodded along, smiled and said ‘Yeah” as a questioner slandered AIPAC as an “unholy alliance” of “Islamophobes”, “Anti-Semites” and “white nationalists” that perpetuates bigotry. Without blinking Warren then agreed to boycott this year’s AIPAC Conference. Elizabeth Warren had attended at least four AIPAC events in the past. It is bewildering and frightening how fast the political world can change. It can literally change overnight. This is what scares American Jews. Unfortunately, the Jewish People have been down this road before. It started in Biblical times when “A new King arose over Egypt, who did not know of Joseph” and continued in modern times with the rise of Hitler in Germany. I am sure there is a great deal of soul searching going on in the Democratic Party today but the lurch to the Radical Left and towards Anti-Israel sentiments is a recipe for disaster. American Jews have good reason to be afraid.

Russian diplomat warns alleged Israeli strikes in Syria could lead to 'conflict'

i24NEWS

February 10, 2020, 11:57 AM - latest revision February 11, 2020, 9:18 AM

Russian envoy to Syria denounces attacks on pro-Iranian militias as violations of its sovereignty   The alleged Israeli strikes on pro-Iran militias in Syria are "provocative" and increase the odds of a "conflict" flaring up, Russia's envoy to Syria Alexandr Yefimov warned Monday. In his interview for Sputnik.Arabic, Yefimov said that the air campaign went deep into Syria, covering not just the Golan Heights area, but also targets as remote as in Damascus. He claimed that civilians fell prey to the strikes and denounced the attacks as a violation of Syria's sovereignty. Yefimov also reiterated the allegations voiced earlier by the Russian Defense Ministry, which said a passenger jet had to change course and land at a Russian base in Syria because Israeli fighter jets were trying to use it as a shield. In the recent months, Syria saw a string of attacks on Iran-backed assets in the country, including Thursday's attack on three separate militia positions that left some 23 fighters dead, as reported by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The attacks were routinely attributed to Israel as it sought to turn the tide on Iran's encroachment in Syria amid the war in the country. Israel rarely acknowledged such raids, however, preferring to ambiguity on the matter.

Sanctuary City Challenge: US Goes to Court for Denver Records

Monday, 10 February 2020 04:50 PM

U.S. immigration officials are asking a federal judge to force Denver to turn over information about four men accused of crimes who are subject to deportation after the city refused to comply with its order to do so. In a continued escalation of the conflict between federal officials and so-called sanctuary cities, U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement filed a complaint in Denver federal court Thursday asking that a judge enforce administrative subpoenas it issued to the Denver's sheriff department last month for information such as addresses, identification and arrest reports on the three Mexicans and a Honduran. Accusing ICE of seeking the information for “political reasons," Denver said it would not comply unless a judge determined that the orders were appropriate. Denver officials declined to comment on the latest move by ICE on Monday, as did the U.S. Attorney's Office for Colorado, which is representing ICE in court. According to ICE, all four men have been deported multiple times. One of the men from Mexico was arrested in Denver for sexual assault, another for vehicular homicide and a third for child abuse and strangulation assault. The Honduran man was arrested on domestic violence charges. Three of the men have been released from the jail, and one was still being held. Denver jail officials notified ICE before the three were released. But there was not enough time for ICE agents to get to the jail before they were freed, according to the ICE court filing.  In a letter last week explaining the city's refusal to comply with the subpoenas, Chad Sublet, the attorney for Denver's Department of Safety, said that ICE already had access to the state and federal database to which the city feeds information. He pointed out that ICE had already accessed biometric data like fingerprints about the men that the Denver jail had shared when the four men were booked.

Pestilence Rising

By Hal Lindsey

When it comes to the coronavirus, we have more questions than answers. But one thing we know for certain — health officials around the world are very much afraid. China normally downplays these kinds of events. But Chinese President Xi Jinping calls this outbreak a “grave situation.” For many Americans, it seemed to hit home when the Shanghai Disneyland closed. The original Disneyland in California has had only two unplanned all-day closures — after the assassination of John Kennedy and after 9-11. Not only did Disney in China close, but so did other regional tourist attractions. Even MacDonald’s and Starbucks closed along with other well-known restaurant chains. As of this writing, there have been 4,100 confirmed cases in China, with at least 106 deaths. 56 million people in China have had their travel restricted. This adds a great deal to people’s fear and anxiety. Residents have said they feel trapped — locked in with a dangerous virus. In much of China, trains are either unoccupied or not running at all. Train and bus terminals are eerily empty. The US State Department is evacuating its personnel from the city of Wuhan. But another thousand Americans live in that city, and they have been told that the United States cannot get them all out of the hot zone. The State Department has issued a travel warning to Americans considering a trip to China. Despite the flight restrictions and intense passenger screening, confirmed cases of the virus have popped up in 13 countries so far. That includes, as of this writing, five confirmed cases in the United States. Five Americans out 327 million may not seem like much. But the point is, it’s here! Then we learned why the passenger screening process has not always been effective. According to China’s health minister, people with the virus may be contagious before they show symptoms. Testing people for fever doesn’t help if they are contagious before they get a fever. Dr. William Schaffner, an adviser to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said this would mean “the infection is much more contagious than we originally thought.”  Yes, health officials are afraid. They know that this virus has the potential of becoming a global pandemic. But we’ve heard that before. Do you remember the SARS and MERS viruses? They, too, were coronaviruses and had the potential to ravage the earth. We still don’t have vaccinations against them, but they have largely disappeared. That’s what happens with these kinds of diseases. Even without human intervention, they rise and then they lose strength. The current outbreak may turn out to be even less destructive than SARS or MERS. Or it could be worse. The question is how much damage the disease will do while it is most active. The Spanish flu pandemic of 1918 and 1919 infected one-third of the world’s population. It killed more Americans than World War I, World War II, Korea, and Viet Nam combined. Jesus said that the last days would be marked by pestilences. Revelation tells about specific pestilences that will arise during the tribulation period. As we get closer to the beginning of the tribulation, the world seems to be primed for a series of massive global pandemics. The ease and speed of global travel is one of the big factors here. The other great danger is the rise of superbugs. Over the last hundred years or so, we humans have been inadvertently developing bacteria, viruses, and fungi that are stronger than anything in history. We call them superbugs because they are resistant to antibiotics, antivirals, and antifungal medications. By the extensive use of such drugs, we have made it so that only the strongest of each species survives. And the strong bugs are increasingly difficult to kill. This is what the UK’s Chief Medical Officer, Dame Sally Davies, was talking about when she warned of a coming “superbug apocalypse.” Here’s the amazing thing. The Bible predicted this almost two thousand years ago. It’s just another example of something that should be crucially important to everyone. The Bible is true! We can trust it. We can trust its warnings and its promises. Even bleak news like this should remind us that our faith in God and heaven is built on a firm foundation.

West Point Tackles 'Toxic Masculinity'

“I’m being taught how not to be a man.”

Mon Feb 10, 2020 Mark Tapson

Mark Tapson is the Shillman Fellow on Popular Culture for the David Horowitz Freedom Center. If you are a good, committed cultural Marxist and your mission is to help dismantle the cultural, economic, and power structures in the capitalist West from within, how do you undertake such a grand task? How do you subvert an entire civilization? You undermine its foundations, and the most basic building block of all is the nuclear family. To deconstruct the family successfully, you must subvert masculinity, because masculinity is the warrior spirit of that nuclear family. To emasculate a civilization, you indoctrinate its youth to believe that the natural traits typically associated with masculinity – such as aggression, competitiveness, and emotional self-control – are poisonous to society and even to boys and men themselves. You convince men – especially society’s warriors – to reject their very nature altogether. This January, cadets at West Point, the United States Military Academy, were required to attend educational events for “Honorable Living Day,” the academy’s third such day hosted during the short tenure of Superintendent Lt. Gen. Darryl A. Williams. The first was held last February and focused on eliminating sexual assault and harassment at the academy, which has been co-ed since 1976. The second, held last semester, called upon cadets, staff and faculty to improve the culture in order to combat sexual assault further. At this most recent Honorable Living Day, the goal was to “expand the discussion beyond sexual assault and talk about how all aspects of the community can come together and promote an atmosphere of honorable living to include diversity, inclusion and acceptance of people from differing backgrounds, races and genders.” Lt. Gen. Williams described the curriculum as being “connected” to improving combat readiness. Eradicating any sexual assaults or harassment at West Point is a worthy goal. They shouldn’t be tolerated in any work or study environment. Encouraging cadets to live with personal integrity and to treat others according to the content of their character and not the color of their skin are also vital aims. But if reports from several male West Point cadets are true, there appears to be more going on in this past Honorable Living Day than meets the eye. Breitbart News reported that it received comments from some cadets, on condition of anonymity, complaining that the program went beyond merely discouraging sexual harassment. As one cadet put it: “I’m being taught how not to be a man.” The day’s schedule included discussion groups led by upper-class cadets who referred to “toxic masculinity,” which is the notion, rapidly becoming a household phrase, that our traditional understanding of masculinity is a sexist, violent social construct that is harmful to men themselves as well as to others, and must be acculturated out of existence. Those who push this concept insist that the label does not mean that masculinity itself is toxic, but in fact that is exactly what they mean, because they never concede that there are any positive characteristics of masculinity, and their only solution for it is to replace it with characteristics stereotypically attributed to women: empathetic, emotionally open, and conciliatory. The whole aim of indoctrinating young men about their “toxic masculinity” is to convince them that their very nature is problematic for society and therefore they must act more feminine (meanwhile, our culture pushes women to adopt all the character traits of the most “toxic” men: aggression, hyper-competitiveness, crudity, and promiscuity). West Point cadets were required to view Miss Representation and The Mask You Live In, two documentary films produced by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the wife of Gavin Newsom, a California Governor so leftist he makes former Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown look like former Governor Ronald Reagan. I have seen both these films. Miss Representation examines “the ways in which mainstream media and culture contribute to the underrepresentation of women in positions of power and influence,” according to its website. It features commentary from such experts on masculinity as Cory “Spartacus” Booker, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Jane Fonda, Rachel Maddow, Rosie O’Donnell, and Gloria Steinem. Needless to say, these far-left ideologues have no inspirational insights to offer West Point’s male cadets (or the female cadets, for that matter). The Mask You Live In focuses on the false “masks” of masculinity that boys and young men are pressured to wear in order to be considered men. Masculinity is presented as emotionally repressive. “We’ve constructed an idea of masculinity in the United States that doesn’t give young boys a way to feel secure in their masculinity, some make them go prove it all the time,” declares Stony Brook University professor Michael Kimmel, a prominent male feminist, in the film. There is absolutely no discussion of traditional masculinity as a positive force. “Masculinity is not organic,” claims Occidental University professor Caroline Heldman in The Mask You Live In. “It’s reactive. It’s not something that just develops. It’s a rejection of everything that is feminine… through our popular culture, through our parenting styles, through our educational style, and through assumptions of natural manhood and maleness.” In other words, femininity is the baseline nature of humanity, and masculinity exists only in opposition to it, like darkness exists only in opposition to light. It is an unnatural, false social construction that is oppressive and damaging. Afterward, Breitbart News was told, cadets attended workshops in which they were questioned about the films’ content. They were also addressed by featured speaker Bruce Stewart, a self-described “leading thought leader in the field of inclusive diversity,” who told them, “This whole thing around sexual harassment, sexual assault, discriminating and saying racist things has got to stop.” Below are a few other activities presented in the day’s curriculum: Session 1 (gender-based Discussion):

Cadets will bring a 3×5 card identifying 3 things that make them feel included/valued and 3 things that make feel excluded/no [sic] valued

Cadets will discuss their gender socialization and how that socialization affects behavior and relationships

Live Honorably Lunch:

Facilitators will invite cadets to share their thoughts from the morning discussion and examine how society/culture/West point, etc. shapes their gender norms and expectations

Session 2 (Role Play Scenario Development)

Cadets will select from 8 topics per company and create role play scenarios

Settings or topics for role play scenarios: Sexism, Racism, Cyber bullying, Alcohol, Mental Health, Sexual harassment or Sexual assault, Discrimination based no [sic] Sexual orientation, Cadet choice (other topic)

According to the complaints Breitbart News received, Honorable Living Day didn’t have quite the effect it should have. “I’m going to quit West Point. It’s no longer teaching me to be a leader of men. It’s teaching me how to be a victim,” said one cadet. “I’m being taught how not to be a man,” another added. “The real bias we need to talk about [is] why it’s scandalous to be conservative in a professional environment but ‘brave’ to follow the crowd and be liberal,” yet another cadet wrote. A fourth reported that “The guest speaker had us all make a black power sign and yell, ‘Fight the power!'” “Fight the power” is, of course, a call to revolution against society’s purportedly oppressive power structures. What does that have to do with living honorably, eradicating sexual harassment or improving combat readiness? The answer is: nothing. It is an act of subversion, pure and simple. Asked about the Black Power salute, West Point responded to Breitbart News that it was unaware of any speaker encouraging it. The stated mission of West Point is to produce graduates who are “leaders of character committed to the values of Duty, Honor, Country.” God knows we need such leaders today, but you produce them – among the male cadets, anyway – by empowering their masculinity, not vilifying it, and channeling it toward virtuous, honorable ends. You don’t produce them through propagandistic, feminist-driven documentaries that make young men feel devalued and dishonorable, through role-playing scenarios concocted by social justice academics, through deconstructing and demonizing “gender norms,” or through racially-charged revolutionary chants led by diversity “thought leaders.”

Mahmoud Abbas makes noise at UN again rather than try to negotiate peace

By Danny Danon February 9, 2020 | 6:53pm

Someone in the Palestinian Authority should get President Mahmoud Abbas a map — because he seems to be lost and confused. You’d think he’d respond to President Trump’s “Peace to Prosperity” plan by traveling to Jerusalem or Washington to negotiate ­directly with Israel. Instead, he’s coming to the Big Apple. On Tuesday, he will speak before the UN Security Council and seek a vote condemning the American plan. This isn’t the first time Abbas has taken a very wrong turn. After receiving an Israeli peace offer in 2008, he continued down the well-trodden path of Palestinian rejectionism and never delivered a response. Four years later, Abbas evidently lost his way to the ­Obama White House, refusing to respond to Israeli gestures and explore ways to break an impasse in ­negotiations. Instead, he ended up petitioning the UN General Assembly to grant the PA “non-state-observer” status. Two years ago, the Trump ­administration recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel — in recognition of historical fact, present-day political reality and US law. Abbas again ran to Turtle Bay to denounce the administration’s decision instead of negotiating. As in the past, Abbas is combining his pleas for international sympathy with incitement back home. To generate attention for his dramatics at Turtle Bay, he is inciting violence and calling for the habitual Palestinian “Day of Rage.” This time, he said he would thwart Trump’s plan “no matter who the victims might be.” As usual, it is Israelis and Palestinians who will pay the price of such incendiary rhetoric. Perhaps the reason Abbas so often tucks tail and runs to New York is that Palestinians can find a semblance of support only at antiquated international organizations. Like a mother shielding a child fearful of facing reality, the Arab League, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the United Nations and other such institutions still try to shield the Palestinians and their agenda. And they still speak with a fairly unified, anti-Israel voice.

But the diplomatic traditions and bureaucratic mechanisms of these organizations move at glacial paces compared to the rapid transformation of the world outside. Things have changed dramatically — in the Middle East and beyond. The more accurate barometer of international patience for ­Abbas’ antics is to be found in national statements and bilateral relations. Here, it is clear that many countries have stopped buying into the lie that Abbas is interested in a peaceful resolution with Israel. Crucially, that includes many Arab and Muslim countries, which are increasingly weary of Abbas. They are choosing to downgrade the Palestinian issue to refocus on other national priorities, such as guarding against the Iranian threat, thawing relations with Israel to access our defense and tech capabilities and so on. Hence why Bahrain, Oman and the United Arab Emirates sent their ambassadors to the White House for President Trump’s ­unveiling of his long-awaited plan. Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Morocco, meanwhile, urged both sides to entertain the plan. While international organizations may stand with Abbas, their individual member states and other nations around the world are seeing through continued Palestinian intransigence and rejectionism. They prefer to entertain a more realistic path that could lead to a peaceful resolution, which Trump’s vision represents. Yet Abbas and his PA remain uninterested in this path forward, choosing instead to seek refuge in the plush halls of the United Nations. Abbas’ performances may resonate with his sycophants at Turtle Bay, but they won’t help the Palestinians living in Jenin, Tulkarm or Qalqilyah. And while his news cycle will be brief, the lasting impact of direct negotiations can be just that: lasting. Seventy-three years ago, Jewish leaders said “Yes” and never looked back. In the same time, Palestinian Arab leaders have repeatedly said “No” and never stopped looking back. With his scheduled trip to New York, Abbas is committing the Palestinian people to living in the past. His repeated rejections throughout his decade and a half in office have held his people back from a prosperous future. As Trump, like his predecessors, explained last week, the path toward a brighter future begins with negotiations in Jerusalem. Someone with the best interests of the Palestinian people in mind would do well to remind Abbas of this fact — and point him in the right direction. Danny Danon is Israel’s ­ambass­ador to the United Nations.

Palestinians withdraw UN vote on Trump plan

Diplomatic sources say Palestinian Authority withdraws request due to proposal lacking 'sufficient support'; Abbas to appear before Security Council Tuesday as scheduled

AFP | Published: 02.10.20 , 20:27

The Palestinians have abandoned their request for a vote at the UN Security Council Tuesday on rejecting the U.S. Mideast plan, over a lack of international support, diplomats said.

Follow Ynetnews on Facebook and Twitter

After the resolution was introduced by Indonesia and Tunisia, fears had risen that it would fail to muster nine out of 15 votes in its favor, the minimum required, provided there is no veto by a permanent member, the diplomats told AFP. Palestinian Authority President Mahmud Abbas is set to take part Tuesday in a session on U.S. President Donald Trump's peace outline, which paves the way for Israeli annexation of much of the West Bank but also allows for a demilitarized Palestinian state.  The sudden Palestinian withdrawal of their request came after the United States - which enjoys veto power as a permanent member - proposed a series of amendments that could come for a vote at the session attended by Abbas. In proposals seen by AFP, the United States would significantly alter the text to remove references to 1967 lines being the basis of peace. It would also cut out a line stating that West Bank settlements are illegal, a position taken by virtually every country except the U.S. and Israel.  The United States is also seeking to eliminate language that equated East Jerusalem with the West Bank. The Trump plan calls for recognition of the holy city as Israel's undivided capital while establishing a Palestinian capital on its eastern outskirts. While recognizing that the Trump plan "departs from the internationally endorsed terms of reference and parameters," the U.S. wants the resolution to state that the Security Council "welcomes discussion on this proposal to advance the cause of peace." "Discussions are continuing on the text," a diplomat said on condition of anonymity.  Other diplomats cast doubt on whether a vote could take place at a later date, considering the wide divergences in positions.

Shocking Footage Inside China's Newly-Constructed Hospitals, 'Like Jail Cells Where You Go To Die'

by Tyler Durden Sun, 02/02/2020 - 08:45

China has gone from constructing ghost cities to now erecting hospitals to treat coronavirus patients. As we've reported, China could be hiding the true number of confirmed cases and deaths, and in some cases, not reporting the deaths at all, and "immediately" hauling the bodies down the street to a local crematorium, effectively burning the evidence. The government's official death toll on Saturday night topped 300, with more than 14,550 cases reported globally. China is attempting to show the world, it has been proactive and responsible during the outbreak, and in one way that it can optically please everyone that it has everything under control, is to build a hospital in Wuhan, the epicenter of where the deadly virus supposedly began. UK researchers have warned upwards of 75,000 could be infected in Wuhan, as more than 137,600 have been placed under observation across China. While China and the World Health Organization (WHO) attempt to calm fears of a deadly virus outbreak, the actions by Beijing in locking down dozens of cities and quarantining 50 million people or more, suggest the situation remains severe. RT News reports that Wuhan's new 25,000-square-meter hospital, one of two new facilities commissioned in response to the coronavirus outbreak, has been completed. Construction started on Jan. 24, has made national press and headlines across the world for China's quick response in handling the epidemic. Though as we've noted before, China stalled for weeks if not a month, with minimal action in attempting to contain the virus and notify world health officials about the developing incident, hence why confirmed cases are now seen across the world. State-owned China Global Television Network (CGTN) published satellite images of the facility's construction, declaring the hospital was completed on Saturday and can start receiving patients next week. It would appear Chinese media has been told to promote the rapid building of this facility as we are seeingit across many outlets... Allegedly, a video from inside the hospital is circulating social media channels on Sunday morning. Each room appears to be airtight, with bars on the windows so the infected patients cannot escape. If the patients die from coronavirus, state-owned Global Times said, "victims should be cremated close by and immediately. Burials or transfer of the bodies not allowed. Funerals not allowed to avoid the spread of the virus: National Health Commission." We noted Thursday night that over 100,000 Chinese had been placed under observation for suspected coronavirus. The virus has uncontrollably spread across China, forcing the Trump administration on Friday to restrict entry into the US from the outbreak area. The 8th US coronavirus case was confirmed on Saturday in Massachusetts, and a suspected one is being tested in New York City. Putting the coronavirus in the context of the deadly SARS epidemic, the coronavirus pandemic has now officially exceeded SARS in cumulative cases in just two weeks.

'Terrifying' moment thousands of black birds swarm the parking lot of a Texas shopping center, resembling iconic scene from 1963 Alfred Hitchcock film The Birds

Grackles are seen soaring over the sky for an extended period of time January 24

The clip evokes reminders of Alfred Hitchcock film The Birds, where townsfolk are attacked by them at a gas station

Videographer Tracy Miller says: 'This is just [expletive] crazy. Look at these birds, they're like everywhere. Just thousands and thousands and thousands…'

Grackles had taken over this parking lot for several days prior to the recording

Miller said: 'It was truly terrifying with them swarming like flies. They were everywhere: rooftops, cars, on the ground, in the trees'

She added that the sky was 'abuzz with them all' and 'they were so loud!'

Grackles 'prefer shopping centers and fast-food store parking lots where there's trash for food and trees or light posts for perching,' Houston Audubon states

By Leah Simpson For Dailymail.com Published: 11:11 EST, 2 February 2020 | Updated: 13:28 EST, 2 February 2020

Thousands of birds are seen taking over a Texas parking lot, leaving the area practically deserted in a video that evokes flashbacks to the 1963 Alfred Hitchcock film The Birds. One clip shows the swarm of grackles dominating the area in Fort Worth suburb Burleston on January 24, with a woman recording the moment later calling it 'terrifying'. 'This is just [expletive] crazy. Look at these birds, they're like everywhere,' the amateur videographer says. 'Just thousands and thousands and thousands…' As the camera pans, it shows many of the black birds soaring over the sky for an extended period of time. Some are also seen taking over areas on the ground where vehicles are positioned in bays and no people are seen walking through the lot. The footage evokes reminders of Alfred Hitchcock film The Birds. In the 1963 motion picture starring Tippi Hedren, an iconic scene shows birds attack townsfolk at a gas station. It had been a similar scene in the days prior to the video being captured. 'The grackles had taken over this parking lot for several days prior to me shooting the video,' Tracy Miller told Storyful. 'It was truly terrifying with them swarming like flies. They were everywhere: rooftops, cars, on the ground, in the trees. The sky was abuzz with them all, and they were so loud!' Great-tailed grackles are one of North America's fastest-expanding bird species. Houston Audubon says that since the 1960s, they have followed the spread of irrigated agriculture and urban development into the Great Plains and West. The birds are a permanent sight in Houston and can be found in any area inhabited by humans that has some trees, according to the website. 'They tend to congregate in large flocks and prefer shopping centers and fast-food store parking lots where there's trash for food and trees or light posts for perching,' Houston Audubon states. The website also explains why Miller found them to be so loud. 'Great-tailed Grackles have a wide repertory of songs and sounds including piercing whistles and creaks,' Houston Audubon states online. 'In the evening, raucous flocks pack neighborhood trees creating noisy roosting aggregations.'

Gary Stearman: The Prophecy of the Wolf

August 26, 2017

There are two men in the Bible who share the same first name—King Saul and Saul of Tarsus, the man we call the Apostle Paul. Though they share the same first name, their spiritual choices led them in opposite directions. Little did they know that God built their triumphs and tragedies into an end-times prophecy—The Prophecy of the Wolf. Track the lives of these two men across a span of 1,000 years and see how even their names interconnect in remarkable ways. Paul, once a ravening wolf who hunted down members of the early church, became God’s messenger to the New Testament church. Looking ahead to a future prophecy, his brethren from the Tribe of Benjamin will once again find themselves face-to-face with another “Wolf.” Watch Gary Stearman travel through the biblical timeline to deliver this important prophetic message.

40 Privacy Groups Warn That Facial Recognition is Threatening Democracy

TOPICS: Derrick Brozefacial recognitionPrivacy February 1, 2020

By Derrick Broze

On Monday, forty organizations signed a letter calling on an independent government watchdog to recommend a ban on U.S. government use of facial recognition technology. The letter was drafted by the digital privacy advocacy group Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) and signed by organizations including the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Color of Change, Fight for the Future, Popular Resistance, and the Consumer Federation of America. The letter calls on the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board (PCLOB) to “recommend to the President and the Secretary of Homeland Security the suspension of facial recognition systems, pending further review.” The PCLOB was originally created in 2004, as an independent agency that advises the administration on privacy issues. “The Congress specifically found that new surveillance powers ‘calls for an enhanced system of checks and balances to protect the precious liberties that are vital to our way of life and to ensure that the Government uses its powers for the purposes for which the powers were given’,” the letter states. The organizations challenge the PCLOB to “examine the more significant public concerns about the use of facial recognition in public spaces.” They also call on the board to address concerns that facial recognition software can be used by “authoritarian governments to control minority populations and limit dissent could spread quickly to democratic societies.” The letter from EPIC mentions a recent New York Times investigation of a facial recognition service used by more than 600 law enforcement agencies across the country. As the Mind Unleashed recently reported, Manhattan-based Clearview AI is collecting data from unsuspecting social media users and the Chicago Police Department (CPD) is using the controversial facial recognition tool to pinpoint the identity of unknown suspects. The Times investigation shows that the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security are also using the controversial tool. MIT Technology Review believes EPIC’s letter is “one of the biggest efforts so far in the fight to stem the use of facial recognition technologies.” And while these 40 organizations call on the PCLOB to make an official recommendation, there are already examples of pushback against facial recognition. San Francisco, CA and Somerville, Massachusetts recently became the first local governments to ban the use of facial recognition tools. The European Commission is also considering a ban on facial recognition in public for five years. In June 2019, the Georgetown Law Center on Privacy & Technology released a report titled “America Under Watch: Face Surveillance in the United States” which calls for a moratorium on facial recognition technology. In June 2019, I also noted that “the editorial board of the Guardian also recently spoke out about the privacy threats, calling the technology ‘especially inaccurate and prone to bias.’ The editorial board also noted that a recent test of Amazon’s facial recognition software by the American Civil Liberties Union found that it falsely identified 28 members of Congress as known criminal.” Whether or not the PCLOB or some other government agency chooses to take action on a moratorium on facial recognition, it is imperative that consumers begin educating themselves about the technology and take steps to protect their privacy. While we are limited in how often our faces are scanned in public, we can voluntarily opt-out of facial scanning at airports, grocery stores, and other locations. We cannot depend on the government to protect our privacy and liberty. We must take action and guard what little privacy remains before it’s too late.

California’s nightmare is spreading nationally

California’s nightmare is spreading nationally By Lloyd Marcus for American Thinker

I recently returned home to West Virginia from filming my Trump Train 2020 song music video in California. It was exciting and fun — a sound stage; green screen; lights; cameras; and the director yelling, “Action!” With the mixed bag of enthusiastic locals we used as extras, the atmosphere in the studio felt like a Trump rally. They love Trump and eagerly want to do their part to help him “Keep America Great.” The Trump Train 2020 song official music video will be released early February.  Folks, it is pretty crazy out there in California. We were not in San Francisco, where they give tourists maps to avoid piles of human excrement. We rode past a private home with a rainbow sign stating that all gender identities were welcomed. The restrooms at the San Diego airport car rental center had signs assuring gender-confused men that they are welcome into women’s restrooms. The average gasoline price was around $4.60 per gallon. We pay around $2.40 in West Virginia. While in California, Robert Kirk, the director of the music video, gave me a sneak peek at his comedy short film, Nightmare in Paradise. Robert’s hilarious movie is about a transgender who shows up for a job interview. The interviewer must handle the transgender with kid gloves and extreme caution to avoid breaking laws. Robert is a former prosecutor. The scary thing about his brilliant script is that it is based on existing California laws. Here is a link to watch Robert Kirk’s Nightmare in Paradise. While turning down a pro-life Super Bowl ad featuring abortion survivors, Fox proudly announced its plan to feature the first drag queen Super Bowl ad. Drag queens are a minuscule percentage of the population. Pro-lifers are a huge segment of the population. Why are so many major corporations giving mainstream America their middle finger while bending over backwards to please an extreme tiny minority of counter-culturists? Even Democrat presidential candidates say, “Screw you, mainstream America; we’re pandering to transgenders.” Joe Biden tweeted, “transphobia is the paramount civil rights issue of the current era.” As a proud American who happens to be black, it offends the heck out of me that a behavior is absurdly deemed the same as the racial discrimination fought by my late dad and his fellow black civil rights pioneers.

“WOKE” U.S. Military Academy at West Point is force-feeding cadets cultural Marxist propaganda about gender and masculinity

February 2, 2020 by BareNakedIslam

America’s premiere military academy West Point is adopting the far left cultural Marxist propaganda in which cadets are being forced to accept so-called new “gender norms” and reject “evil toxic masculinity,” leading one cadet to comment, “I’m being taught how NOT to be a man.” Breitbart West Point cadets attended mandatory eventsframed by the military academy as educational curriculum — on “inclusion,” “diversity,” and “gender norms,” Breitbart News has learned. The programming included discussion groups led by upper-class cadets, labeled “facilitators,” making references to “toxic masculinity.” This was the military academy’s third “Honorably Living Day” hosted by West Point Superintendent Lt. Gen. Darryl A. Williams,” reported the Military Times, describing West Post’s characterization of “honorable living” as including “diversity, inclusion and acceptance of people from differing backgrounds, races and genders.” Williams described the event as relevant to the development of “combat readiness.” Cadets were obligated to view Miss Representation and The Mask You Live In, two documentary films produced by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, first lady of California and wife of Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA). Miss Representation features commentary from assorted left-wing and partisan Democrat figures, including Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA), Katie Couric, Rosario Dawson, Jane Fonda, Rachel Maddow, Rosie O’Donnell, and Gloria Steinem. Debuted by the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), Miss Representation frames American society as broadly pathologized by anti-woman sexism. The Mask You Live In derides “hypermasculinity,” and masculinity more broadly, as stultifying boys’ and men’s emotional development. Its features commentary critiques what its speakers characterize as arbitrarily socialized “gender roles” associated with manhood. “Be a man,’ that’s one of the most destructive phrases in this culture, I believe,” stated Joe Ehrmann, former NFL defensive lineman. “Masculinity is not organic,” claimed Caroline Heldman, a professor of politics at Occidental University. “It’s reactive. It’s not something that just develops. It’s a rejection of everything that is feminine … through our popular culture, through our parenting styles, through our educational style, and through assumptions of natural manhood and maleness.” Breitbart News received comments from several West Point cadets on condition of anonymity. Cadets are prohibited from speaking with the press without the school’s authorization under threat of disciplinary action. “I’m being taught how not to be a man,” said one cadet “I’m going to quit West Point. It’s no longer teaching me to be a leader of men. It’s teaching me how to be a victim,” said another cadet. “The real bias we need to talk about [is] why it’s scandalous to be conservative in a professional environment by ‘brave’ to follow the crowd and be liberal,” a third cadet wrote. A fourth cadet said, “The guest speaker had us all make a black power sign a yell, ‘Fight the power!’” Instead of developing leaders, West Point is taking time to attack masculinity. The program even questions the phrase “be a man.” Yet, by attacking masculinity, mandatory trainings such as Honorably Living Day undermines the very characteristics our military desperately needs.  Patriot Post General Boykin quoted George Orwell, who fought in the Spanish Civil War and observed the hardships of battle first-hand: “Orwell said, ‘We rest well in our beds at night because rough men stand ready to do violence against those who would threaten us.’” General Boykin argues that the campaign against masculinity inflicts a great deal of damage on society beyond the military. “This whole idea of ‘hypermasculinity,’ which is one of the phrases that they’ve coined now… is absolute nonsense, has nothing to do with reality. It is about destroying men because they are the foundations of the family… Remember when the U.S. Army FORCED ROTC cadets to wear high heels to promote a feminist-linked campaign on sexual violence against women? ROTC cadets are complaining on message boards that they were pressured to walk in high heels on Monday for an Arizona State University campus event designed to raise awareness of sexual violence against women. (Because this is so much more important than learning how to kill Muslim terrorists) U.S. Army Lt. Col. Doug Pietrowski, 7th Sustainment Brigade deputy commanding officer, wears a pair of women’s high heels while participating in the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event at Fort Eustis, Va., April, 10, 2013. The event is one of many that are meant to bring awareness to sexual assault and gender violence. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Wesley Farnsworth/Released) Washington Times The Army openly encouraged participating in April’s “Walk A Mile in Her Shoes” events in 2014, but now it appears as though ROTC candidates at ASU were faced with a volunteer event that became mandatory.Attendance is mandatory and if we miss it we get a negative counseling and a ‘does not support the battalion sharp/EO mission’ on our CDT OER for getting the branch we want. So I just spent $16 on a pair of high heels that I have to spray paint red later on only to throw them in the trash after about 300 of us embarrass the U.S. Army tomorrow,” one anonymous cadet wrote on the social media sharing website Imgr, IJReview reported Monday. The Army has not tried to hide from the event. It promoted similar events in 2014 on its website, saying “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is open to everyone. We are trying to get maximum participation and even if they can’t be there, we still encourage them to make a donation.”

Canadian Prime Minister Hoping to Force News Websites to Have Government License

February 3, 2020 by Lighthouse Trails Editors

“Trudeau Minister Proposes Forcing News Websites to Have Govt Licence”

By Chris Tomlinson Breitbart

Canadian Heritage Minister Steven Guilbeault has stated that news websites, along with social media companies, could be forced to obtain government licences to operate in Canada. The minister, who has been tasked with updating Canada’s broadcasting laws using the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), stated that internet news sites will be “asked” to obtain a government-approved licence, broadcaster CTV reports. The report, entitled “Canada’s communications future: Time to act”, was released on January 29th and included 97 recommendations. It details how the CRTC would be vastly expanded to not only regulate radio and television broadcasters but news websites as well. Click here to continue reading.

FBI warns of new online threat to personal, credit card information

Published Fri, Jan 31 20208:05 AM ESTUpdated Mon, Feb 3 20209:14 AM EST

Companies including Macy’s, British Airways, Puma and Ticketmaster have been hit by a new form of personal and credit card hacking, known as e-skimming or magecart, which steals information from websites.  Never using a debit card online and asking a company for a virtual credit card are among steps that consumers can take to protect themselves. Federal authorities have a consumer warning for shoppers. Hidden skimming devices (commonly thought to be attached to gas station pumps and ATMs) have gone high-tech. “It’s hard to put really — definite numbers around it. But one thing we know for sure is that millions of credit card numbers have been stolen, even over the course of the past two years,” Herb Stapleton, section chief for the FBI’s cyber division told CNBC. This new type of skimming is called e-skimming or Magecart. Cybercriminals can gain access to your personal and credit card information in a number of ways. They can break into a web server directly or break into a common server that supports many online shopping websites to compromise them all and once a site has been compromised, the shopper can’t spot the difference. “It’s nearly impossible for a consumer to detect that this has happened to them before the actual occurrence. The site that they would look at, which is already infected, would look no different to a consumer,” Stapleton said. Randy Pargman is the senior director for threat hunting and counterintelligence at Binary Defense, an Ohio-based cybersecurity company that monitors companies’ computers for signs of attacks. The company won’t disclose its clients but says many are in the retail sector. “Any retailer that has a significant online presence that accepts online orders is definitely concerned about e-skimming,” Pargman said.

For consumers, there are several things you can do to protect yourself when shopping online.

1. Always shop with a credit card instead of a debit card online. This lessens the inconvenience if your card is compromised, Pargman said. Credit card users usually have a lower liability for fraud. In addition, getting money returned to your debit card can take some time.

2. Consider asking your bank or credit card company for a virtual credit card. Not all banks offer it but many do. The virtual credit card is a unique credit card number to be used for specific transactions and for a specific merchant. If this number is compromised, other charges will be declined.

3. Monitor their cards for any unusual activity and report it right away.

While the FBI’s Stapleton said e-skimming has been on its radar for nearly seven years, he said the crimes are growing because cybercriminals are sharing the malware online and becoming more sophisticated. “If we put up a wall,” Stapleton said, “they’re building a ladder or a tunnel or a way to go around it.”

Posting anti-vaccine propaganda on social media could become criminal offence, Law Commissioner says

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 76%. (I'm a bot) Posting anti-vaccine propaganda on social media could become a criminal offence - even if those promoting it believe the pseudoscience, the UK's new criminal Law Commissioner has said. In her first interview since taking up the role, Penney Lewis, revealed she is considering whether laws should be amended to "Lower the threshold" of criminality for posting false information online that endangers lives. Prof. Lewis became one of the Law Commission's five commissioners last month, and will lead its work drawing up reforms to modernise swathes of the UK's criminal law over her five-year term, starting a wide-ranging review of how Britain's communications laws function in the social media age. The Law Commission is set to release its proposals on modernising communication laws for public consultation later this year.  Prof. Lewis will then draw up recommendations, which will be signed off by four other law commissioners, before going to the Government. One model the new law commissioner is looking at for modernising the UK's laws is New Zealand's approach of criminalising online messages based on the harm they cause, with harm largely defined as emotional distress.

Britons Airlifted from Wuhan Ride to Quarantine on Four “Horseman” Buses

February 2nd, 2020

Via: Daily Mail: The bus drivers for the 83 British evacuees suspected of carrying the deadly coronavirus spent an entire 172-mile journey with them without wearing face masks. Although none of the passengers rescued from Wuhan have been confirmed infected, the virus is highly contagious and they are being bundled into quarantine in Arrowe Park Hospital, Wirral, for 14 days. Yet, the men behind the wheel of the buses spent hours cooped up in the vehicles without protective clothing.  Earlier this afternoon, they even greeted the suspected patients with handshakes at RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire before embarking on their long-haul drive across the country to the North West. The coronavirus, which has infected nearly 10,000 people and killed 213, is known to spread easily through coughs and sneezes and close contact, and people may be contagious even if they feel well. The Department of Health said coach drivers – who will not be quarantined, MailOnline understands – would be wearing ‘appropriate protective equipment’, but images have emerged of them wearing none, despite being sat beside hazmat-wearing medical workers. The drivers will also spend 14 days in isolation themselves. They were asked to drive those brought back from China without any masks or specialist clothing – and will now take a period of paid leave away from others. A spokesman for Horseman Coaches said their staff had been reassured by Government officials that they did not need to wear masks for the 180-mile journey because passengers had been quarantined for eight days in China and only allowed on the flight because they were clear of any symptoms.

Giant Flocks of Crows and Huge Mosquitoes Invade Skies and Cities Around Coronavirus Ground Zero Zone in China

By Strange Sounds - Feb 3, 2020

Chinese social media users around the country have reported unusual sightings of dense flocks of crows and a mass of giant overwintering mosquitoes… And all they want to know is if those unusual animal phenomena are somehow related to the coronavirus and its outbreak. Someone from the online community provided a possible answer: “The crow is an eater of carrion. The elderly say that crows seem to anticipate death because they can smell it, even before a person dies. In other words, they can smell the odor of a dying person; but we humans cannot. They will then circle around this person waiting for him to die. That is why in Chinese culture crows are considered inauspicious and are always linked with death.” Most of the videos, all filmed and posted online on January 28, 2020, show flocks of crows are from Yichang, Jingzhou, and Hanchuan, cities situated in Hubei Province, the epicenter of the Wuhan coronavirus. In the Hanchuan City video, a large, dense flock of crows was videotaped flying around and cawing loudly. One observer said, “This situation has never occurred before.” In a similar video from Yichang City, a man exclaimed, “Oh my God, it is said that abnormal scenes predict something unusual is about to happen.” After those videos were viewed on the internet, netizens from other cities, including Jiaozuo and Puyang, in Hunan Province; and Beijing and Tianjin cities, wrote that they had observed similar phenomena recently. A netizen from Beijing wrote: “I saw an even larger flock of crows in Beijing’s Haidian district last month. There were at least 1,000 crows.” Meanwhile, thousands of black birds – aka grackles – also took over parking lot in Houston, Texas: Meanwhile, a resident of Beijing noticed a large number of oversized mosquitoes clustered underneath a highway ramp in the city’s Haidian District on Jan. 25. “This has never been seen before. It is very abnormal indeed. Can a research team in the related field come and examine it?” he asked.  Beijing is very cold in winter and adult mosquitoes, like the ones in the video, usually don’t emerge until April. Ancient Chinese wisdom tells us that when there are a large number of overwintering mosquitoes or when they emerge in the early spring, they will likely bring about an outbreak of contagious diseases. More than 2 million deaths? Meanwhile, a new research estimates that up to 75,800 individuals in the Chinese city of Wuhan may have been infected with 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) as of Jan. 25, 2020. But the number of newly infected patients will reach maximum, about 200,000 per day, in April, while other cities like Chongqing, Guangzhou, and Shenzhen, will peak in May. In the following months, the total number of coronavirus infected people across China could reach 18 million, and the total number of deaths would be 1 to 2 million. So yes, those strange animal events may be some really bad signs for the future of this coronavirus outbreak, or even for humanity. Be ready and prepared!

Are You Prepared To Shelter-In-Place Today? Imagine Turning On The News To Learn Coronavirus Had Arrived In Your City! Getting Ready For The Worst Case Scenario

February 2, 2020 By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine

The "official" number of those infected with Coronavirus is 13,000 worldwide, but the actual numbers are unknown because news from China, where the 2019-nCoV is believed to have begun, must be state approved and no one really knows if they have been totally forthcoming with their data, but it is unlikely that they have been. What we do know if that the virus has now been confirmed in nearly 20 countries, including the U.S. The latest "suspected" case in the U.S. is in New York City, with a population of over 8 million people. This follows the recently confirmed case of a college student in Boston, which was the 8th to be confirmed in the U.S. The World Health Organization has declared a global emergency, while the U.S. government has imposed travel restrictions and mandatory quarantines over Coronavirus outbreak. Major corporations are taking their own preventative measures, such as WalMart that has temporarily limited all non-business critical travel to, from, and within mainland China, and conducting all planned meetings virtually, according to their press release. Apple is closing all it's stores and corporate offices in China. The U.S. Defense Department has indicated they are prepared to offer quarantine facilities if need be. (That information is provided in the news clip at the bottom of this article.) The U.S. government, wisely is cautioning people not to panic, as it should, but panicking and preparing are two different things. While Stefan Stanford has done an excellent job updating readers on the spread of the Coronavirus and provided a number of suggestions, and links, to items that can help protect from and fight the virus should it be reported in your state or city, as it spreads we thought it might be a smart idea to prepare to shelter-in-place if need be. Make no mistake, we never want to see the government order it, that is too much like Martial Law, but Americans are smart and understand the best way to prevent catching any type of cold, flu or virus is to stay away from any body or anything carrying the virus. I won't reinvent the wheel here but will Copy and paste those suggestions and links at the very end of the article, because I would like to focus on whether readers are prepared, today, right now if it came to that, to shelter themselves in place to ride this out.

shelter-in-place-img.jpg IMAGINE TURNING ON THE NEWS AND FINDING OUT CORONAVIRUS IS IN YOUR CITY

Now, imagine turning on your TV or opening your favorite news sources online and seeing a map like the one at the top of this article, and seeing your state as having a confirmed case of this new global threat, then hunting where in the state and seeing your city, town or village....are you ready or do you need to put on your face masks, grab you anti-bacterial wipes and run to the store real quick to get ready? The smart thing to do is prepare now. For those capable of sheltering themselves in place, just hunkering down and waiting until everything is under control, they are far more likely to come out on the other side without having gotten close to anyone that could be infected. For those that absolutely have to work outside the home, well, some of the suggestions at the bottom of this article from Stefan's previous piece can help you protest yourself to the best of your ability. Many ANP readers are already preppers in one form or another, and others are just starting, so a quick run-down of items not often mentioned in prepping pieces, enough to allow for an extended amount of time, might be handy, and we always encourage readers to list anything we didn't that they see as important to help guarantee that no family member needs to leave the house unless absolutely necessary. Food and water goes without saying. What kinds of food depends on each individual, some may want a stock of meats because we aren't talking about an EMP or losing electricity, so a full freezer can't hurt, the food will eventually get eaten. Other may want to have a month or two worth of emergency survival food, if they don't have it already. (Note: Stay away from items made in China for now!) VARIETY PACKS WITH MEAT

One of the main warnings that we have seen in our comment section and others is that many of those pails or buckets do not include meat, forcing consumers to buy meat separately if they want meat and more protein in their meal. For those that already have those, meat items alone will be linked as well.

First a few choices freeze dried foods that include do meat.

Mountain House Classic Bucket | Freeze Dried Backpacking & Camping Food

Mountain House Essential Bucket

BOTTOM LINE While we all hope and pray that this deadly Coronavirus doesn't continue to spread, there is never any way to guarantee the final outcome nor how far and wide it will spread, so being as prepared as you can be, without panicking, just making sure all your bases are covered, is simply the common sense thing to do. For those that do notwant to wait the few days it takes for delivery from the links above... head to the grocery store, learn how to freeze milks and other perishables, stock up on foods you usually buy and like, just much more of them and prepare that way. At the very bottom of this page we are providing the list of protective and preventative items that Stefan Stanford first published on January 25, 2020.

CHICOMS and the Democrats Are Making Their Final Push to Take Down America

Submitted by Dave Hodges on Sunday, February 2, 2020 - 09:00.

This mutlpart series will demonstrate that the CHICOMS are in league with each other to remove Donald Trump from office. This is a globalist plot endorsed at the highest levels. There are presently 40% of the nations of the world who are in some level of rebellion against the New World Order. Trump is the face of this populist rebellion. Trump must be removed at any cost, according to the globalists who control the Deep State and the Democratic Party. China has been chosen to takeover the plan to bring America down from the Deep State who has failed to remove Trump and slow down and reverse the rising tide of populism across America and the world. The Chinese are in the process of unleashing a multitude of bioengineered viruses designed to thin out their own population, and as such lessen their food procurement burden. Also, Chinese trade will be enhanced with Donald Trump out of office. This article will demonstrate how the Chinese will use a series of bio-attacks upon America to remove Trump. However, once the American government is replaced by the Bolsheviks, formerly the Democratic Party, then China will fulfill its foreign policy mandate and unleash a massive and genocidal attack upon America (see the five part Wei Fenghe analysis referenced below). China has declared war upon the United States. They are already killing tens of thousands of Americans and nobody is holding them accountable, through the shipping of Fentanyl into the United States, but should be surprised? No, this is not genetic specific genetic bioweapons that I previously wrote about back in July of 2019. This was the beta test for what is happening now. The real attack upon America has moved beyond Fentanyl. We do not have to fear a Chinese nuclear attack and that is the long and the short of the good news. Early in the summer of 2019, I reported that, not only did Chinese Defense Minister, Wei Fenghe, state this openly in a leaked government document which expressed Chinese war plans intended to utterly devastate the United States, he stated that genetic specific bioweapons would be used to commit mass genocide against the United States while leaving the infrastructure and the 12 million Chinese alive in which only non -Chinese would perish and that the origin of the attack is coming from the Chinese biolab in Wuhan. Even Senator Cotton has said he doubts that this release was an accident. Wei Fenghe's private declaration of war was made by him as he spoke to the planning committee of the Communist Chinese Party (CCP) in which he called for genocide against the United States and announced their intention to create hundreds of millions of Chinese colonists the opportunity to become "good Americans". As I established in this five part series, the Chinese had ample motivation and the means to carry out such an attack. If you missed the five part series, you will want to review the major points prior to reading the following content. How Serious Is the Wei Fenghe Plan to Commit Genocide Against America? The Experts Weigh In I have several sources that I rely on to provide me with reliable information and quality interpretation of the facts. One source had direct knowledge of this plot to attack America as had possession of the same document that I referenced earlier this past summer in print on the CSS. The other three sources of information had no direct knowledge but they all agree that if any nation on Earth were to invoke such a vicious battle plan, it would be the Chicoms. In fact, my most experienced covert source said "If I were still at the Pentagon and advising the Joint Chiefs, I would be telling them to expect China to kill tens of thousands of people in Hong Kong and import Chinese peasants into Hong Kong to take their place. To the Chinese government, human life and the loss of human life means nothing, on any scale." THE CHINESE UNLEASHED THE FIRST PART OF THEIR BIOWEAPONS ATTACK UPON THE UNITED STATES THROUGH THE CARTELS BRINGING IN FENTANYL WHILE USING MASS IMMIGRATION FOR COVER. NOW THAT THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY HAS FAILED TO REMOVE DONALD TRUMP, THE CHICOMS ARE TAKING OVER THE PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITY FOR REMOVING TRUMP FROM POWER. WITH THE ADVENT OF THE CORONAVIRUS, THE WEI FENGHE PLAN IS IN FULL EFFECT AND WE SEE EVIDENCE THAT IT IS BEING UNFOLDED IN PHASES. All of my sources felt that it was possible that China would pursue the Wei Fenghe course of action, they all thought it more like, that they first attack America using more covert means. I have also detailed how the Chinese are prepared to unleash a massive 5th column attack inside of the United States when circumstances sufficiently weaken America such as massive domestic disturbance such as the type that Antifa is escalating towards. As the biolengineered biovirus arrives in the United States, the weakening of America has begun in earnest. The CHICOM's goals are being followed on behalf of the globalists who want to take out the American government and Donald Trump:  The detabilizing of the American economy will occur here, just as it is in China due to the release of the virus. China has lost $75 billion from its economy as many manufacturing plants have been shut down. Taking down the American economy gives the Democrats a fighting chance to defeat Trump in November.

The destabilizing of America has begun. There was just an announcement of 17 quarantine zone in America, on Friday. In many areas of China, people are ordered to stay in their homes. One person, per family, every two days, by select neighborhoods is allowed to go outside the home and to procure food. The same is about to happen here.

Chinese children are not going to school. People are not shopping or eating out. The Chinese economy is in free fall. By the way, many of our medicines in America are manufactured in China. Better learn to go natural and stock up NOW!!!

According to Chinese cultural and political experts, the virus is being directed at areas where the people are more progressive in their approach to government and they actually oppose the Communist Party. Wuhan is just such a place.

Hospitals are becoming one big hospice and are ultimately becoming crematoriums. The same will soon be happening here in America.

Many of my insider sources fear that when American is sufficiently crippled, as they are in China, the terrorist/RED DAWN TET-style-offensive will be unleashed against America. The detabilizing effect could bring about a coup against the American government or certain make Trump more vulnerable to removal from office, either administratively or through the election process. At this point it is critical to mention that this is only the preliminary attack by the CHICOMS upon America. This early phase is only designed to remove Trump from power. This also satisfies the mandate by the United Nations that the CHICOMS are replacing the United States as the world's globalist policeman. Taking out America is the CHICOMS first goal. The next phase of the CHICOMS attack upon America will seek to kill as many Americans as possible through the release of an even more deadly pathogen..

The CSS has already shown that the Democrats, former DNC head Congresswoman Wasserman-Schultz Awan brother terrorists, the Clinton Foundation's "pay for play" and Ukrainian arms dealers illegally shipped arms to Iran via Pakistan. It has been shown that the Awan brothers were, at one time or another, were on the payroll of 80 Democrats including Schiff, Pelosi, Feinstein, etc. What else could we possibly conclude that the Democrats are using the CHICOMS bio-attack upon the US as their doomsday device since their efforts to remove Trump and effect a Bolshevik Revolution has failed. These notions are further bolstered by the fact that the CHICOMS are being allowed to take over the assault upon America. We have also demonstrated that key Democrats (eg Pelosi, Kamala Harris, Feinstein, Schiff, et al., have been in bed with the CHICOMS military for decades (eg VP Al Gore and the DNC shipping Silkworm technology to the CHICOMS for dark money campaign contributions in 1996 to Hunter/Joe Biden shipping F-35 technology to the CHICOMS in 2014-15). It is the operating hypothesis and presumption of the CSS that we will find that the CHICOM biolab was shipped the technology to manufacture the very bizarre Coronavirus. Paul Preston and myself believe that we know who the delivery agent is, however, we are working on procuring the details along with Alexandra Daley. Further, I am going to withhold any release of the identity of this group until it is determined that Attorney General Barr is not going to prosecute this group, located inside of California, and is under the control of the Governor of California, When it appears, that nothing is going to be done in this matter by the Trump adminstration, a full release of information will be authorized. Dead man switches are already in play. In a later article, the CSS will clearly demonstrate that all quarantine camps are disguised medical camps and they will be run by HHS and the United Nations. To conclude, the accuracy of these claims are embedded in the following quote by Wei Fenghe:

"The central committee believes, as long as we resolve the United States problem at one blow, our domestic problems will all be readily solved. Therefore, our military battle preparation appears to aim at Taiwan, but in fact is aimed at the United States, and the preparation is far beyond the scope of attacking aircraft carriers or satellites. - Chinese Defense Minister Gen. Wei Fenghe

When one eliminates the traditional military goals of the CHICOM government, there is not much left but the use of bioweapons and this is exactly what we see. It is the belief of the the CSS that we will remember the CHICOM so-called Coronavirus as the good ole days. What is coming next is the fulfillment of the Wei Fenghe strategy. The goal of the CHICOMS is genocide and as stated last July, race-specific bioweapons will be used. As Wei Fenghe stated in his speech, the only way China can survive is to procure the assets and resources of America and they have no interest in joint occupancy.

Why Are Liberal Cities Such a Mess?

By Steve Feinstein February 1, 2020

Many major U.S. cities run by liberal Democrats are in rough shape. They are afflicted by the problems of homelessness, violent crime, gangs, and unemployment to a far greater degree than the country as a whole. Consider the following: Chicago's violence and gang-related drug problems are well-known. What’s less well-known is that the city hasn’t had a Republican mayor since 1927. The city’s finances -- like most Democratically-run major cities -- are in shambles. At the end of 2015, according to a 2017 report by the Fiscal Times, Chicago had assets of just $4.7 billion against liabilities of more than $14 billion, a funded ratio of barely 33%. The homeless population in Los Angeles has risen from a staggering 33,000 in 2010 to over 55,000 in 2018. The city -- already dominated by a liberal super-majority of legislators -- has just recently pushed through massive local tax increases designed to address the homeless crisis. San Francisco actually has maps so people can track where the worst incidences of human waste are on the sidewalks. The homeless population now approaches 7000 and there is no law prohibiting sleeping on the streets, sidewalks, or other public places. Discarded syringes are everywhere. San Francisco’s property crime rate is the highest in the nation and “smash and grab” thefts involving broken car windows are so commonplace that repair shops have waiting lists. The DA’s office no longer prosecutes “victimless” crimes like prostitution or drug possession, resulting in a massive influx of drug dealers into the city. Frighteningly similar situations exist is nearly every other major Democrat-run city, all around the nation: In New York City, Detroit, St. Louis, Baltimore, Hartford, CT, Newark, Philadelphia and on and on, the story follows the same pattern: Homelessness, high crime, underwater finances, soft policing, lax immigration control (often sanctuary cities), high taxes, and business-averse regulations. It’s a guaranteed formula for failure.  As Investors Business Daily put it: When Democrats are in control, cities tend to go soft on crime, reward cronies with public funds, establish hostile business environments, heavily tax the most productive citizens and set up fat pensions for their union friends. Simply put, theirs is a Blue State blueprint for disaster. The question, of course, is why? Why do they choose to govern like that? Can anything about the efficacy and propriety of liberal governing doctrine be extrapolated from these examples? The answer is a resounding “yes.” To boil down the essential difference between conservative and liberal governing philosophy into the simplest terms, it would be this: Conservatives believe in equal opportunity. Liberals believe in equal outcome. The conservative’s view of government’s role in society (after fulfilling its fundamental responsibilities of national defense, common-sense safety/liability regulations, environmental protections and providing a basic social safety net for those in a temporarily disadvantageous situation) is to set up the game pieces such that those choosing to participate have a reasonably equal chance of winning. Not perfectly equal, perhaps, but a reasonable shot at success. In the conservative paradigm, individual initiative, hard work and a bit of luck can eliminate almost all the barriers to educational, professional and financial achievement. In contrast, liberal doctrine stipulates an equal outcome for all people. Their view of government is that its responsibility is to ensure that every individual has at least a minimally acceptable share of society’s spoils (that share being quite arbitrarily determined by liberal politicians, according to their whims and the political exigencies in effect at the time). Liberal governing practices of wealth redistribution, punitive taxation, excessive regulations designed to impede runaway capitalistic profits and “cover every contingency” individual benefit programs all combine to produce -- in many instances -- the unintended consequence of short-circuiting personal initiative and ambition. Instead, these excessive giveaway programs essentially “teach” some people how to game the system and get the government to pay for their existence in society. That’s not the original intent, but that’s how it ends up playing out in many cases. Liberal cities are governed by the guiding tenets of softness, misplaced “compassion,” and individual unaccountability. Examples include: Hands-off policing style (NYC has long since abandoned the highly successful stop-and-frisk practices of the Giuliani years that led to low street crime).  Sanctuary cities, which give rise to higher incidents of crime, poverty, unemployment, and the wasting of taxpayer-funded public resources because of the undocumented population’s draining effect on the community.  The inexplicable decision of cities like Boston to no longer prosecute crimes such as shoplifting and breaking and entering, leading to urban stores not being able to remain open and be profitable (thus denying the community of a valuable resource).

Widespread locally approved abuse of the SNAP/EBT program, allowing its acceptance for alcohol and other nonessential items.

Explicit sanctioning of sleeping on the street or other common public areas and unrestricted public loitering. Liberal policies have worked almost perfectly to degrade the quality of inner-city life for their residents to the point of abject unacceptability. Instead of raising the standard of living for all the city’s inhabitants, excessive giveaways (too often offered without requiring adequate, verifiable proof-of-need) and lax or missing enforcement of local laws and edicts have the opposite effect -- such governmental practice only teaches people that they are forever unaccountable as regards the purported norms of society and that they will be given their daily sustenance for free, without putting forth any commensurate effort on their part. In short, overindulgence by local city governments denies the notion of ownership over their own lives to the lower strata of society. That notion of self-ownership over the control and ultimate destiny of one’s life is absolutely critical to a well-functioning society. Without that sense of personal responsibility, there is no civilized order. There is an old cliché that speaks perfectly to the societal dangers inherent when the individual does not feel the responsibility of ownership: “No one ever washes a rented car.” Liberal cities are strewn with the abandoned, rusted hulks of rented cars, their rotting carcasses a blight on the landscape, indisputable testimony to failed Democratic policy.

The Great Displacement of Americans: Devolving Western Civilization

By Frosty Wooldridge|January 30th, 2020

In an interview with my longtime friend, top immigration specialist Fred Elbel, he gave a frightening look at America’s future. He said, “In the United States, the culture war can loosely be defined as the battle between those who adhere to conservative, traditional, and constitutional views and leftists who espouse political correctness, diversity identity group politics, and belief in more than two biological sexes. (www.Cairco.org) “Mass immigration is a tool of the global elites and of the Left – that is, of the Democrat party – to fragment American society and to displace those who adhere to traditional American values and the foundational premise of our Constitutional Republic. In other words, to disempower Whites, who will become a minority in their own country by mid-century. This isn’t a slur on Blacks or any other nationality, but in essence it is White Europeans who invented and perpetuated Western Civilization. This great displacement of Whites is therefore synonymous with the displacement of Western Civilization.If you don’t think this displacement isn’t going on right under your eyes, take a trip to Detroit, Michigan; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Miami, Florida; New York City; Los Angeles, Atlanta, Georgia and most other large cities with welfare offices and refugee centers. Be prepared to see a deformation of American culture into strange and incompatible cultures taking root. “In Canada, it’s the same, only worse,” said Elbel. “There is no fundamental protection of freedom of speech as there is in the U.S. Indeed, Canada has hate speech laws which are readily interpreted to restrict criticism of mass immigration and the agenda of political Islam.” (Trudeau has his country’s free speech by the throat.) One trip to Vancouver, British Columba, now known as “Hongcouver”, 65 percent pure Chinese have run native Canadians out of that city and, in time, will run them out of that province. Soon enough, the Chinese will secede from Canada. At that point, you will see millions immigrate from China to newly named “Chinese Columbia.” “Western Europe is much like Canada, only worse still,” said Elbel. “European nations have been systematically overwhelmed with hostile, unassimilable Islamists – Muslims. For the most part, individuals are prohibited from discussing and objecting to the invasion. “In all of these nations, the outcome is converging on displacing the native population (e.g., Whites) who perpetuate Western Civilization. The fabric of Western Civilization is under significant threat. While we like to think that the great works of art, music, and architecture of Western Civilization will be revered and preserved forever, all of it is on the chopping block.” In the January 25, 2020 American Greatness article, In the Global Culture War, People and Paintings Are Both at Risk, Karl Spence explains how much is at stake. The article is well worth reading in its entirety. Here are a few excerpts: “The global war we face today puts everything—both civilian lives and cultural artifacts at grave risk. (Has anyone noticed what Muslims do to artifacts? Answer: they blow them up or destroy them no matter what their importance to humanity.) “This war is not properly called a “Global War on Terror.” What we’re up against is the world’s largest and most violent religion: Islam. I doubt that anyone understands Islam better than the men who had been living and breathing it all their lives and killed 3,000 of us in a single morning on 9/11. “I call it a cultural war because it is a struggle over whose values, beliefs and practices will prevail.” In the end, who wins such cultural wars? Answer: the army with the most people and religious fervor. Who might that be? Answer: Muslims! And, we aren’t winning it in America because we continue importing them to increase their numbers and powers. It’s purely America’s suicide death march in action, all in the name of, “We’re a nation of immigrants.” Would Muslims destroy the Sistine Chapel? Yes! How about the Mona Lisa? Yes! Would they destroy “David” in the city of Florence? How about Notre Dame Cathedral? Without a doubt, they would destroy every statue and painting of every classic in the known world if they gained power. How about the Lincoln Memorial? You betcha! Once in control of any country, Muslims destroy any artifact that fails to honor Allah. That means: everything. Then, they install Sharia Law, the most barbaric practices under the sun against women, children, animals, free speech, free thought and anything rational. And yet, the Canadian and American people, as well as all Europeans—work for their own suicides as cultures, religions and languages. It’s curious to watch. It’s curious to see the speed of it. It’s painfully curious that it occurred in my short lifetime on this planet. It’s sickening how a barbaric 6th century religion could topple Western humanity, Western civilization, Western thought and Western Law. But day by day, city by city, that’s what’s happening to Europe, Canada, Australia and Americas. How can we stop this accelerating destruction of Western Culture and society? Answer:

Rescind the 1965 Immigration Reform Act and shutdown all immigration immediately.

Enforce E-Verify documentation of an employee applications.

Outlaw and deport all illegal alien pregnant woman who are here to birth their “anchor baby.”

Stop all chain migration and diversity migrations.

Stop all welfare, food stamps, medical care and schooling for all illegal aliens within the United States.

Enforce US Code 8, Section 1324 in order to take jobs away or the ability to live in the USA by anyone in violation of our laws. The estimated 25 million illegal aliens would have no other choice but to leave on their own dime.

California 'Nanny State Prisoner' Has Dire Warning About The 'Nightmare In Paradise' That Will Be A 'Model For America' If President Trump Doesn't Win In November

- Medieval Diseases, Loss Of Parental Rights And Unlimited Illegal Immigration Await Us

By Robert Kirk - All News Pipeline February 2, 2020

I’m a California Nanny State prisoner. I yearn to break free to what remains of the land of the free but family obligations keep me moored to a one party progressive state whose signature achievements are oppressive taxation, business killing regulation coupled with massive immigration of a welfare dependent class. As Victor Davis Hanson has pointed out, the cherry on top are virtue signaling utopian projects such as the bullet train to nowhere and feel good environmental policies and over-regulation of public utilities which have led to the worst wildfires in the State’s history and the “necessity” of shutting off the power to large segments of the population during high winds as an Orwellian third-world solution to government waste and mismanagement. So. I’m stuck here. One way I try to cope with it is humor. Of course, in today’s politically correct culture, even humor is becoming verboten under the influence of the Lefto-Natzis. That is especially true in the media and entertainment industry which is dominated and controlled by the left. Awhile back I was encouraged by the overwhelmingly positive response of the right wing low brow unwashed Cretans who read All News Pipeline to my article published on ANP a few years back about a nightmare a business owner/émigré from Kansas has about the rules and regulations in his adopted state of California.   So I decided to bring my story to the silver screen. Well, “silver screen” is a bit of an exaggeration. My forte is not only “independent” but also low budget film making. A more apt description would be that I decided to bring my short film as a thrust into the culture war by way of the internet and your computer screens. (ANP EMERGENCY FUNDRAISER! Following Susan Duclos' recent heart attacks and hospitalization, All News Pipeline will need some financial help in the days and weeks ahead. So if you like stories like this, please consider donating to ANP to help keep us in this 'Info-war' for America at a time of systematic censorship and widespread corruption.) My short film, based on my earlier ANP story is titled "Nightmare in Paradise". My film ends with an ironic twist underlined by the classic song, “California Here I Come” playing during the end titles. Though I filmed Nightmare in Paradise this past October, I held it for release until now because the classic song “California Here I Come”, written by Joseph Meyers and Buddy DeSylva in 1924, just come into the public domain this January. Waiting two months for release saved me the cost of having to purchase the composition rights. Also it gave me an opportunity to record our own performance of “California Here I Come” when Lloyd Marcus came out to my home during our filming of his current music video, Trump Train 2020. In mid-January Lloyd Marcus and seven of his fellow Deplorable Chorus members flew out to my neck of the woods so we could finish the studio shoot of the soon to be release music video. On January 11th, after our studio shoot, I had Lloyd and his fellow Chorus members over to the house for dinner and they graciously agreed to belt out a few bars of “California Here I Come.” Another friend and acquaintance, Lance Roettger, did the musical score and also joined in the chorus so that we could finish up Nightmare in Paradise and release it on January 31st. Lloyd published an excellent article in American Thinker not only about his experience coming out to California but most importantly, about the issues which pertain to the culture and political war we are currently engaged in. As Lloyd stated in part in his American Thinker article: California is a state that seeks to remove all parental rights and ban homeschooling, forcing parents to surrender their children for LGBT, socialist/progressive, and anti-American indoctrination. This is a state that coddles illegal aliens, showering them with freebies unavailable to legal residents, while legal residents struggle to survive. This is a state that has ushered in the resurgence of medieval diseases because vagrants are allowed to set up tent cities and defecate on the streets. Criminals who steal under a thousand dollars’ worth of products are not charged. If Bloomberg or any of his fellow wacko Democrats is elected president, Americans will immediately fall backward, resuming the economic, cultural, and world leadership decline of the Obama years. … Trump must be re-elected in 2020. Meanwhile, laugh a bit. Please enjoy Robert Kirk’s Nightmare in Paradise. Yes, I second Lloyd’s opinion. We need to keep both our sense of humor and our focus on victory in 2020. Gold help us if Trump is not re-elected and California becomes the model and the norm for the rest of the Country! Robert Kirk, a retired Prosecutor, suffers from a rare malady that only afflicts a tiny percentage of his fellow Californians – common sense conservative thought.

Dr. Dobson Asks Why Fox Says 'Yes' to Drag Queens, 'No' to Abortion Survivors in Super Bowl Ads

01-31-2020 Steve Warren

Lyric Gillett, director of Faces of Choice appeared on the Friday afternoon edition of CBN's Newswatch to talk about Fox's dealings with her group and their response to her television commercial. Newswatch can be seen weekdays on the CBN News Channel. For a programming schedule, click here.  After Fox Sports declined to air a pro-life advocacy group's television commercial during the Super Bowl this Sunday, Dr. James Dobson, the founder and president of the James Dobson Family Institute, asked the network, "Why are you saying 'yes' to drag queens and 'no' to abortion survivors?" As CBN News reported, Lyric Gillett, director of Faces of Choice and producer of the ad, claimed earlier this week that Fox is essentially censoring their commercial after stringing her group along since last July. According to the Washington Times, Fox said they did not accept the commercial because their ad spaces sold out early. Yet just six days ago, the network announced it had additional ad slots available, according to Variety. "Fox's response would have been acceptable in November but we have been working with their legal team since July, so executives claiming ad space was not available is intentionally deceptive. And it's such an uninventive excuse to say they ran out of space, which is easily disprovable," Gillet said in a statement. "Faces of Choice provided every answer and documentation the legal team requested, and though the network has every right to decide which advertisers to accept, stringing along an eager advertiser who met every demand is professionally shady." "The ad features several people who survived abortions, a part of the population whose voices are rarely heard, so what bigger stage to allow them to speak than on a Super Bowl commercial?" Gillet continued. "In an era where voices that have previously been silenced are allowed to be heard, this particular rejection by Fox Sports seems like a more calculated decision to deem abortion survivors worthy of being ignored." She also announced her group has already started discussions with CBS for airing a commercial in the network's presentation of the Super Bowl in 2021.

30–31 December 2019 On 30 December 2019, an "urgent notice on the treatment of pneumonia of unknown cause" was issued by the Medical Administration and Medical Administration of Wuhan Municipal Health Committee. 27 people with pneumonia of an unknown cause were reported to the WHO on 31 December. Most were stallholders from the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market, seven of whom were in critical condition.

1 January 2020 Hunan Seafood Wholesale Market, the source of the initial pneumonia cases, was closed on 1 January 2020 for cleaning and disinfection.

2 January 41 admitted hospital patients were identified as laboratory-confirmed 2019-nCoV infection in Wuhan. 27 (66%) patients had direct exposure to Hunan Seafood Wholesale Market.

3 January Thailand began screening passengers arriving from Wuhan at four different airports. Singapore began screening passengers at Changi Airport on the same day.

5 January Early investigations into the cause of pneumonia ruled out seasonal flu, SARS, MERS and bird flu. The number of suspected cases reached 59 with seven in a critical condition. All were quarantined and 163 contacts commenced monitoring. At this time, there were no reported cases of human-to-human transmission or presentations in healthcare workers.

Projected outbreak credit muskie? @abuforlife1

6 January Wuhan's city Lianghui started. City representatives met until its closure on January 9. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a travel watch at Level 1 ("Practice usual precautions") on 6 January, with recommendations on washing hands and more specifically advising avoiding animals, animal markets, and contact with unwell people if travelling to Wuhan

9 January The WHO confirmed that a novel

coronavirus had been isolated from one person who was hospitalised. The first death from the virus occurred in a 61-year-old man who was a regular customer at the market. He had several significant medical conditions, including chronic liver disease, and died from heart failure and pneumonia.

10 January The gene sequencing data of the isolated Wuhan coronavirus, a virus from the same family as the SARS coronavirus, was posted on Virological.org by researchers from Fudan University, Shanghai. A further three sequences from the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, one from the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, and one from Jinyintan Hospital.

11–12 January In China, more than 700 close contacts of the 41 confirmed cases, including more than 400 healthcare workers, had been monitored, with no new cases reported in China since 5 January. The WHO published initial guidance on travel advice, testing in the laboratory and medical investigation.

13 January The CDC announced that the genome had been posted on the NIH genetic sequence database, GenBank. On the same day, Thailand witnessed the first confirmed case of 2019-nCoV, first outside China. The affected 61-year-old Chinese woman, who is a resident of Wuhan, had not visited the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market but was noted to have been to other markets. She had arrived in Bangkok on 8 January.

14–15 January On 14 January, two of the 41 confirmed cases in Wuhan were reported to include a married couple, raising the possibility of human-to-human transmission. A second death occurred in a 69-year-old man in China on 15 January.

16–17 January On 16 January, the WHO was alerted by Japan's Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare that a 30-year-old male Chinese national had tested positive to 2019-nCoV during a hospital stay between 10 and 15 January. He had not visited the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market, but possibly had close contact with an affected person in Wuhan. On 17 January, Thailand's second confirmed case was reported in a 74-year-old woman who arrived in Bangkok on a flight from Wuhan. The number of laboratory-confirmed cases rose to 45 in China. The Big Wobble's first report on the virus A second person has died in China from a mystery virus that has stricken dozens and has appeared in Thailand and Japan: Human-to-human transmission "cannot be excluded"

18 January After the first 41 laboratory-confirmed cases were identified on January 2, 2020, 16 days elapsed with no further confirmed cases before China reported 17 additional laboratory-confirmed cases, with three cases in critical condition. The number of laboratory-confirmed cases rose to 62 in China, with the ages ranging from 30 to 79, of which 19 were discharged and eight remain critical. On the same day, the Wuhan government organised an annual banquet of forty thousand families. They shared meals and ate together. The Big Wobble reports New Chinese virus infected hundreds: "I am substantially more concerned than I was a week ago," disease outbreak scientist: Actual number could be over 2,000 infected NOT 45 confirmed cases

20 January Chinese premier Li Keqiang has urged decisive and effective efforts to prevent and control the epidemic. First confirmed case reported in South Korea. Beijing and Guangdong reported an additional three and thirteen laboratory-confirmed cases, respectively. Shanghai confirms its first case, bringing the total number of laboratory-confirmed cases in China to 218. The investigation team from China's National Health Commission confirmed that the coronavirus can be transmitted between humans. At least two people had become infected whilst living hundreds of miles from Wuhan.

21 January The World Health Organization announced that it would hold an emergency meeting on the virus the following day to determine if the virus is a "public health emergency of international concern (PHEIC)". Confirmed cases were reported in several new locations in China. The total number of laboratory-confirmed cases in China increased to 312 and the death toll increased to six. 15 Wuhan medical staff infections were reported, of which 14 were from a suspected super-spreader. Taiwan reported its first laboratory-confirmed case, and the United States reported its first laboratory-confirmed case in the state of Washington, the first in North America.

22 January New cases: Macau and Hong Kong reported their first laboratory-confirmed cases, with Hong Kong reporting its second on the evening of 22 January. The total number of laboratory-confirmed cases in China increased to 571 and the death toll to 17. In response, the government announced a quarantine until further notice, cancelling outgoing flights and trains from Wuhan, and suspending public transportation in Wuhan. However, statistics compiled by the Chinese Railway Administration showed that on the same day approximately 100,000 people had already departed from Wuhan Train Station by the deadline. Furthermore, many Wuhan residents bypassed the checkpoints by taking antipyretics, having seen tips shared on Sina Weibo. Internationally, two more laboratory-confirmed cases were reported in Thailand, raising the total number of laboratory-confirmed cases in Thailand to four. New data showed indications of the current rapid spread of the disease and an increase in the rate of transmission.

23 January In all, the total number of laboratory-confirmed cases in mainland China increased to 628 while the death toll remained at 17. Singapore reported its first laboratory-confirmed case, a 66-year-old man from China. Vietnam confirms its first two laboratory-confirmed cases, a 66-year-old father and 28-year-old son from China. Wuhan suspended all public transportation from 10 a.m. onwards, including all bus, metro and ferry lines. Additionally, all outbound trains and flights were halted. In Wuhan, construction began near midnight for a specialist emergency hospital, modelled after the Xiaotangshan Hospital during the 2003 SARS outbreak in Beijing, after it was proposed earlier in the afternoon. The new Huoshenshan Hospital is expected to open by 3 February with a capacity of at least 1,000 beds.

24 January Singapore confirmed its second and third cases. Thailand confirmed its fifth case. Hong Kong confirmed three additional cases, bringing the total number to five. Nepal confirmed its first case, a student who returned from Wuhan. France reported its first three confirmed cases, the first occurrences in the EU. The first confirmed incidence of human-to-human transmission outside of China was documented by the WHO in Vietnam. A study by Chinese researchers indicates that people can be symptom-free for several days while the coronavirus is incubating, increasing the risk of contagious infection without forewarning signs.

25 January Australia confirmed its first four cases, one in Victoria and three in New South Wales. Malaysia reported its first three cases in Johor Bahru, and a fourth case later. Japan confirmed its third case. Canada confirmed its first case in Toronto. Thailand added two new cases for a total of seven. Singapore confirmed its fourth case. A 62-year-old doctor reportedly died in the Hubei province from the coronavirus. Wuhan announced building a second emergency speciality hospital, named Leishenshan Hospital, with a planned capacity of 1,300 beds, to be in use in half a month. The United States announces plans to evacuate US citizens out of Wuhan by charter jet. Beijing announced it will halt all inter-provincial bus and train services starting January 26. Xi Jinping, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, stated that the country is facing a "grave situation" as the number of infected people is accelerating. Hong Kong declares a state of emergency. Hong Kong announced it would close schools until 17 February. A Chinese and a Sri Lankan suspected with the infection were admitted to a hospital in Sri Lanka.

The Big Wobble reports The Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory is the only lab in China designated for studying dangerous pathogens like SARS and Ebola and had its annual safety drill days before outbreak!

26 January Shanghai reported its first death, an 88-year-old man. China banned all wildlife trade with immediate effect. The United States confirmed its third, fourth, and fifth cases: two in California and one in Arizona. Macau confirmed three additional cases, bringing its total to five. Hong Kong has confirmed its sixth, seventh, and eighth cases. Thailand has confirmed its eighth case. There are another 39 suspected cases awaiting confirmation. Health officials are dealing with a suspected case of coronavirus in Ivory Coast, the country's health ministry has announced. The Beijing Government stated it will not lock-down the city. The death toll has now climbed to above three per cent.

The Big Wobble reports 3 glaringly obvious coincidences missed by the MSM: Flu virus killed 200 million pigs in China last year: The Wuhan Biosafety Lab is the only one in China: Situated just 20 miles from Huanan Seafood Market and none of these points is being discussed or even mentioned by governments or the media, why?

27 January Mongolia closes border with China, shuts down schools until 2 March, and calls for all public gatherings to be cancelled. Wuhan suspends visa, passports services for Chinese citizens until 30 January. The Shanghai government has said companies in the city are not allowed to resume operations before February 9. Canada reported its first confirmed case and another presumptive case. Health officials have confirmed the fifth case of coronavirus in Australia, and have suspected an additional 5. The Sri Lankan Health Ministry confirms its first case of coronavirus, a 43-year-old Chinese woman. Cambodia confirms its first case of the virus, a Chinese man who came with his family to Sihanoukville. Singapore confirms a fifth case, a 56-year-old Chinese national who arrived from Wuhan on 18 January. First confirmed case in Germany, a man in Bavaria had been confirmed to have coronavirus. Three new suspected cases in Austria. 'Matei Balș' Institute reports the first possible case in Romania. Ecuador reported a suspected case of coronavirus. Fiji authorities are holding six Chinese travellers in quarantine in Nadi as a precaution after they failed to gain entry to Samoa due to Samoa's quarantine requirements that were implemented Friday. In Poland, two children were admitted to the Kraków hospital with the suspicion of coronavirus. In Mongolia a 14-year-old girl who was studying in China had fallen ill with a suspected case of pneumonia and laryngitis; she was pronounced dead on the same day. Two Mongolian students returning from Taiwan to Chinggis Khaan International Airport have shown symptoms of high fever and rising temperature and were put into quarantine after landing in Mongolia. In Samoa, two men were put in quarantine over coronavirus fears. In Switzerland, two people are under quarantine at the Triemli Hospital in Zurich, both had previously been to China. Beijing reports first death from coronavirus. The mayor of Wuhan acknowledges criticism over his handling of the crisis, admitting that information was not released quickly enough. The Big Wobble Reports The virus is impossible to contain: Actual number infected thought to be up to 200,000: Virus can spread before symptoms show: Towns around Wuhan barricading roads and motorways to stop people entering.

28 January The Philippines suspends issuance of visa on arrival to Chinese nationals. The CDC stated it was boosting staffing at 20 US airports that have quarantine facilities. Germany confirms the first case of infection. Death toll climbs to 106 as China tightens measures. The number of total cases confirmed by China rose to 4,515 as of 27 January, up from 2,835 a day earlier an incredible surge of 91%. Japan is sending a plane to Wuhan to evacuate its citizens, as efforts to repatriate foreign nationals from the city at the epicentre of the outbreak gather pace. Thailand confirms six more cases, bringing the total infected there to 14. Thailand starts scanning all travellers from China with immediate effect. The virus has spread across China and to at least 16 countries globally...MORE and more patients in the Philippines have been placed under investigation (PUI) for the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV), said the Department of Health (DOH) Tuesday, January 28, 2020. In a press briefing, DOH Secretary Francisco Duque III said that as of 12 p.m. Tuesday, a total of 27 PUIs have been recorded Japan confirms 2 additional cases, bringing the total infected there to six. Singapore confirms two more cases, bringing the total infected there to seven.

29 January Tibet reported its first suspected case identified on the previous day and declared a level 1 health emergency in the evening, the last mainland provincial division to do so. Suspected cases have now been reported in all 31 mainland provincial divisions. Companies in Hubei are required not to resume services before 13 February, and schools in Hubei are to postpone the reopening of schools. Chinese police drop their case against eight people, accused on 1 January of spreading "false rumours" about a new SARS-like virus, who have been referred to as "the eight brave (八勇士)" by some on Chinese social media. The UAE confirms its first case. Shortly afterwards, an Emirates' news agency confirmed four people from a Chinese family to be infected. Finland reports its first case of the virus in Lapland, found in a tourist who left Wuhan before Wuhan was locked down. Singapore confirms three more cases of the virus, bringing the total infected to 10 cases. Malaysia confirmed three additional cases, bringing its total to seven. Japan reports four additional cases, including a tour bus guide that was on the same bus as one of the cases confirmed on 28 January and three evacuated from Wuhan. France confirmed a 5th case, the daughter of the patient in the fourth case. Two Chinese nationals were placed in isolation wards in Armenia amid the first suspected case of coronavirus in the country. The Chinese nationals were tourists travelling to Armenia from neighbouring Georgia. Liana Torosyan, the head of the Department of Infectious Diseases, advised that samples will be sent to European labs, as Armenia does not have the capacity to test for the novel coronavirus. Brazil now reports a total of 6 suspected cases in the country.

30 January Tibet confirms its first case, which was previously suspected. Cases have now been confirmed in all 31 provincial divisions of mainland China. India confirms its first case of coronavirus in a student who had returned from Wuhan University to the Indian state of Kerala.

South Korea confirms two more cases, with one of them being the first human-to-human transmission there. Vietnam confirms three new cases, bringing the total to 5. The three became infected during a training trip to Wuhan. France confirms its sixth case. Italy confirms its first two cases in a press conference by the Prime Minister, Giuseppe Conte. Germany confirms its fifth case, an employee of the company where the four previously known cases are also employed. The United States confirmed its sixth case, the spouse of another patient in Chicago. This is the first confirmed case of human to human transmission within the United States. The Huanggang Communist Party committee announced the dismissal of its health chief, Tang Zhihong.

31 January The United Kingdom confirms two patients have tested positive for the coronavirus. Italy suspends air travel to and from mainland China for 6 months. Thailand confirmed 5 more cases with first time human-to-human virus transmission inside the country on a local taxi driver, bringing the total to 19. First Swedish and Spanish cases were confirmed. A seventh confirmed case in the U.S. is in Santa Clara County, California. The fourth case of coronavirus in Canada has been confirmed in London, Ontario. Thailand confirmed 5 more cases with the first human-to-human virus transmission inside the country of a local taxi driver, bringing the total to 19. Chinese health experts warn the public that coronavirus patients can become reinfected. China starts repatriating citizens to Wuhan.

1 February Vietnam confirmed its sixth case in Khánh Hòa Province, another domestic transmission in direct contact. Singapore had two more coronavirus cases, bringing their total to 18. Australia reported another three cases, including the first two cases in South Australia, bringing their total to 12. Japan reported two more cases, increasing their total to 15. South Korea confirmed the twelfth case of the coronavirus: a 49-year-old Chinese man who works as a Japanese tour guide in western Seoul. The United States reported the 8th case in a man from Boston who recently returned to college after travelling to Wuhan.

2 February Vietnam announced its seventh case positive to nCoV, a Vietnamese-American with 2-hour transitting in Wuhan Airport. South Korea reported three more cases, currently 15 in total. The first confirmed death from 2019-nCoV outside mainland China was announced in the Philippines. The case was that of a 44-year-old male who is the companion of the first confirmed case in the country. He was in stable condition prior to his death on 1 February. Wuhan's Epidemic Prevention and Control Headquarters arranged for Jointown Pharmaceutical to overtake the warehouse management of Wuhan Red Cross after days of scandals and controversies regarding the Red Cross' incompetence, extreme delays in allocating donation resources, and unexplained apparent misallocation of crucial medical supplies. Wenzhou, Zhejiang announces implementing the same measure as Huanggang, where every household may send one person every two days outside for purchases, from 00:00 on 2 February to 24:00 on 8 February. Huoshenshan Hospital completed construction in the morning and was transferred to the military, half a day earlier than scheduled. Hubei allows imported and re-imported masks that are unlisted in China to be sold in the provincial market. The Ministry of Transport extended the cut-off time for the minibus toll-free period of the 2020 Spring Festival to 24:00 on 8 February 2020. Meituan starts an initiative to disinfect all shared bikes in eight mainland cities regardless of the brand. With immediate effect, Wuhan's government announced the quarantining of "all suspected patients and those known to have been in close contact with a confirmed case." It stated "Patients shall cooperate. Whoever refuses to cooperate will be subject to enforcement by the police." Chinese Premier Li Keqiang has asked the European Union to facilitate the sale of medical supplies “through commercial channels”. According to a Chinese government statement, the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen said the European Union will try its best and coordinate all necessary resources to provide assistance to China. A new mask factory has started production in Beijing, after only seven days of being proposed and having all licenses on the 31st of January. According to Beijing Daily, the new factory is "capable of producing tens of millions of masks per month". It is located in the Yizhuang Economic-Technological Development Area in southeast Beijing.

Freak Double Bombogenesis Cyclone Engulfs Alaska Just Five Days After Another Explosive Cyclogenesis Exploded in Heavy Winterstorm

By Strange Sounds - Feb 2, 2020

Bomb cyclone after Bombogenesis and explosive cyclogenesis… Is that the new normal for Alaska?

Just five days after a violent North Pacific cyclone exploded in a vicious winterstorm in Alaska, another extra-tropical cyclone is undergoing Bombogenesis. But it’s not just a Bomb… No, it’s a double bomb cyclone, after its center pressure dopped by more than 59 mbar in 48 hours! Pretty amazing video isn’t it. And in the next tweet, windspeed of more than 90mph measured! The first rapid cyclogenesis took place south of Kamchatka peninsula on January 31, 2020:

1005 mbar at 00 UTC, Jan. 31

994 mbar at 06 UTC, Jan. 31

987 mbar at 12 UTC, Jan. 31

978 mbar at 18 UTC, Jan. 31

967 mbar at 00 UTC, Feb. 1

The second rapid intensification happened on February 1, 2020 as the system was growing in power towards the Aleutian Islands (Alaska) and the Bering Sea: 978 mbar at 18 UTC, Jan. 31

967 mbar at 00 UTC, Feb. 1

955 mbar at 06 UTC, Feb. 1

948 mbar at 12 UTC, Feb. 1

946 mbar at 18 UTC, Feb. 1

Alaska double bombogenesis in February 2020

When taking all the data together (from the beginning of the storm on January 31, 2020 to the end of the rapid cyclogenesis on February 1, 2020), there is an amazing drop of 59mbar of the center pressure. That’s indeed a Rare Double Bomb Cyclone!

1005 mbar at 00 UTC, Jan. 31

994 mbar at 06 UTC, Jan. 31

987 mbar at 12 UTC, Jan. 31

978 mbar at 18 UTC, Jan. 31

967 mbar at 00 UTC, Feb. 1

955 mbar at 06 UTC, Feb. 1

948 mbar at 12 UTC, Feb. 1

946 mbar at 18 UTC, Feb. 1

Although the cyclone has stopped growing in power, it is still growing in size! This giant bouble bomb cyclone will bring some powerful windstorms across the Aleutian Islands. Be ready! Read more on Strange Sounds or Steve Quayle

'Corpses Taken Directly To Crematorium' - New Accounts Detail Grisly Operation At Wuhan's Fifth Hospital

by Tyler Durden Sat, 02/01/2020 - 16:00

Radio Free Asia (RFA) has tweeted a disturbing video on its Twitter account on Saturday morning detailing how those who died of coronavirus in Wuhan, the outbreak area in China, were loaded up on a bus and taken "directly to the crematorium." RFA said (in a translated tweet): "[Latest Situation of Wuhan Fifth Hospital] Some Wuhan citizens entered Wuhan Fifth Hospital on February 1st and found many patients who died of pneumonia. The corpses were packed directly to the crematorium. Paramedics are busy rescuing the dying patient." RFA's video is in line with our report from Friday that said those who died of the deadly virus were hauled off to a crematorium in Wuhan by Chinese authorities. DW News East Asia correspondent William Yang cited a report from the Chinese-language news outlet Initium, which said cremation facilities in Wuhan were receiving bodies directly from hospitals without proper identification and were excluded from the official record. "So, there are reasons to remain skeptical about what China has been sharing with the world because while they have been more transparent about certain things related to the virus, they continue to be sketchy and unreliable in other aspects," said Yang. "Without properly identifying these patients, which means there are patients who died from the virus but not adding to the official record. That shows the current death toll of 133 that we are seeing is way too low," he said. The closest funeral home/ alleged crematorium is right down the street from Wuhan Fifth Hospital. We noted Thursday night that over 100,000 Chinese had been placed under observation for suspected coronavirus. The virus has uncontrollably spread across China, forcing the Trump administration on Friday to restrict entry into the US from the outbreak area. Putting the coronavirus in the context of the deadly SARS epidemic, the coronavirus pandemic has now officially exceeded SARS in cumulative cases in just two weeks.

Putin Sends Air Force To Evacuate Hundreds Of Russian Citizens From China

by Tyler Durden Sun, 02/02/2020 - 11:45

As the list of countries both shutting their borders to China and canceling major carrier flights in and out of the country grows, Russia is set to take drastic action by airlifting its nationals out of the country via Air Force planes. "The evacuation of Russian nationals from China on the Aerospace Force’s aircraft is scheduled for February 3-4, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Saturday," reports TASS news agency, which further indicated the evacuation order came directly from President Putin. This also after the first two cases of coronavirus in Russia were confirmed on Friday. Two Chinese nationals have been quarantined in the Siberian region of Tyumen and the far eastern Zabaykalsky region, and are expected to recover. Russian authorities promptly restricted direct flights to China and shut the massive land border with China, which extends over 4,000km. No doubt this will have significant economic impact for both countries, given China remains Russia's largest and most important trading partner. Peskov announced further in the Kremlin statement: "Due to the fact that it has taken certain time to finalize the coordination of flight information by the Chinese side, the evacuation of Russian nationals from China by planes of the Aerospace Force will be carried out on February 3-4." Russian media reports have indicated there remain 300 Russians in Wuhan, with another 341 across Hubei province. Peskov also indicated Saturday that while all Russian nationals will be taken out by Monday and Tuesday, "They will start carrying out [evacuation] flights as of today." And Russia's embassy in China said in a Sunday statement: "We have established contact with 202 fellow countrymen and 130 of them have expressed readiness to leave the Hubei province." Russia joins a growing list of others who have sent emergency charter flights or military aircraft to take evacuate their citizens trapped in quarantined Wuhan, including the US, France, Germany, Britain, Canada, Japan, Spain and others. But then a crucial question remains: at this late point could the evacuation flights set to commence Monday simply be unwittingly be bringing the deadly virus back into Russia? Russian authorities have said they will take extreme precautions, including making each returnee spend at least 14 days in quarantine.

Pestilence Rising

By Hal Lindsey

When it comes to the coronavirus, we have more questions than answers. But one thing we know for certain — health officials around the world are very much afraid. China normally downplays these kinds of events. But Chinese President Xi Jinping calls this outbreak a “grave situation.” For many Americans, it seemed to hit home when the Shanghai Disneyland closed. The original Disneyland in California has had only two unplanned all-day closures — after the assassination of John Kennedy and after 9-11. Not only did Disney in China close, but so did other regional tourist attractions. Even MacDonald’s and Starbucks closed along with other well-known restaurant chains. As of this writing, there have been 4,100 confirmed cases in China, with at least 106 deaths. 56 million people in China have had their travel restricted. This adds a great deal to people’s fear and anxiety. Residents have said they feel trapped — locked in with a dangerous virus. In much of China, trains are either unoccupied or not running at all. Train and bus terminals are eerily empty. The US State Department is evacuating its personnel from the city of Wuhan. But another thousand Americans live in that city, and they have been told that the United States cannot get them all out of the hot zone. The State Department has issued a travel warning to Americans considering a trip to China. Despite the flight restrictions and intense passenger screening, confirmed cases of the virus have popped up in 13 countries so far. That includes, as of this writing, five confirmed cases in the United States. Five Americans out 327 million may not seem like much. But the point is, it’s here! Then we learned why the passenger screening process has not always been effective. According to China’s health minister, people with the virus may be contagious before they show symptoms. Testing people for fever doesn’t help if they are contagious before they get a fever. Dr. William Schaffner, an adviser to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said this would mean “the infection is much more contagious than we originally thought.  Yes, health officials are afraid. They know that this virus has the potential of becoming a global pandemic. But we’ve heard that before. Do you remember the SARS and MERS viruses? They, too, were coronaviruses and had the potential to ravage the earth. We still don’t have vaccinations against them, but they have largely disappeared. That’s what happens with these kinds of diseases. Even without human intervention, they rise and then they lose strength. The current outbreak may turn out to be even less destructive than SARS or MERS. Or it could be worse. The question is how much damage the disease will do while it is most active. The Spanish flu pandemic of 1918 and 1919 infected one-third of the world’s population. It killed more Americans than World War I, World War II, Korea, and Viet Nam combined. Jesus said that the last days would be marked by pestilences. Revelation tells about specific pestilences that will arise during the tribulation period. As we get closer to the beginning of the tribulation, the world seems to be primed for a series of massive global pandemics. The ease and speed of global travel is one of the big factors here. The other great danger is the rise of superbugs. Over the last hundred years or so, we humans have been inadvertently developing bacteria, viruses, and fungi that are stronger than anything in history. We call them superbugs because they are resistant to antibiotics, antivirals, and antifungal medications. By the extensive use of such drugs, we have made it so that only the strongest of each species survives. And the strong bugs are increasingly difficult to kill. This is what the UK’s Chief Medical Officer, Dame Sally Davies, was talking about when she warned of a coming “superbug apocalypse.” Here’s the amazing thing. The Bible predicted this almost two thousand years ago. It’s just another example of something that should be crucially important to everyone. The Bible is true! We can trust it. We can trust its warnings and its promises. Even bleak news like this should remind us that our faith in God and heaven is built on a firm foundation.

U.S. confirms its eighth case of coronavirus; Pentagon to provide quarantine housing

Brad Brooks

(Reuters) - U.S. health officials on Saturday confirmed an eighth case of the fast-spreading new coronavirus in the United States and the Pentagon said it would provide housing for people arriving from overseas who might need to be quarantined. The latest U.S. patient, who is in Massachusetts, recently returned from Hubei province in central China, the epicenter of the outbreak, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said in an emailed statement. The person was not identified and no other details were provided. The flu-like coronavirus, which is believed to have originated in a market that traded illegally in wildlife in Hubei’s provincial capital Wuhan, has so far resulted in 304 deaths in China, state broadcaster CCTV said early on Sunday in China. Confirmed cases of the virus have been reported in 27 other nations, according to the CDC. All but one of the patients in the United States was believed to have contracted the disease while they were traveling in the Wuhan area. U.S. officials this week reported the first human-to-human transmission of the disease in the United States in Illinois. Concerns about the virus spurred the Trump administration to declare a public health emergency and bar entry to the United States for foreign nationals who have recently visited China. In addition, U.S. citizens who have traveled within the past two weeks to Hubei will be subject to a mandatory quarantine of 14 days, believed to be the incubation period of the virus, officials said. Americans who visited other parts of mainland China will undergo special health screening upon their return, followed by up to 14 days of “monitored self-quarantine,” under the temporary restrictions. In a statement on Saturday, the Pentagon said Defense Secretary Mark Esper approved a request for assistance from the Department of Health and Human Services for housing support for 1,000 people who may be subject to quarantine on arrival from overseas. Health officials had asked the Defense Department to provide several facilities capable of housing at least 250 people in individual rooms through Feb. 29. The Pentagon said four military installations have been selected: two in California, one in Colorado, and one in Texas. It said Defense Department personnel would only provide housing support and HHS would be responsible for all care and transportation. “DOD personnel will not be directly in contact with the evacuees and evacuees will not have access to any base location other than their assigned housing,” the Pentagon said. QUARANTINE PROCEDURES  The first quarantines of U.S. citizens potentially exposed to coronavirus in China began hours before the White House announcement on Friday. Nearly 200 Americans evacuated earlier this week from Wuhan and voluntarily confined to a California military air base for 72 hours of health screenings were placed under a mandatory 14-day quarantine on Friday. By Saturday afternoon, none of those quarantined showed any symptoms of having the virus, said Jose Arballo, a spokesman for the public health department in Riverside County, where the air base is located. He said test results were still pending. The order to keep the Americans on the base marked the CDC’s first mandatory quarantine for decades. “Since this hasn’t been done in 51 years there’s quite the scramble to work through all the procedures,” a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) official said, adding that the last mandatory quarantine was ordered to fight smallpox. The official, who requested anonymity because they are not authorized to speak publicly about the matter, said DHS personnel would take over running medical screenings at airports this weekend to free up their CDC counterparts for other tasks.  State and local authorities will likely play a role with mandatory quarantines, the official said, which could mean “a lot of variance across the country for how it gets implemented.” A DHS spokeswoman denied the department was scrambling and said it has been working on these plans since last summer, when it began contracting medical professionals and readying quarantine and health screening plans in case it had to ramp up for the Ebola outbreak. “We were able to quickly tailor those plans and contracts to the coronavirus,” said the spokeswoman, Heather Swift. Swift said state and local officials are always involved in public health and emergency response, but that there is a uniform standard. “All passengers who receive a positive symptoms screening will be placed in quarantine. Those who show no symptoms will be sent home on self-quarantine,” she said. Nearly 12,000 people have been infected globally by the virus, according to the WHO, with all but just over 130 of those cases occurring in China. U.S. health officials have said risks to the United States remain low.

ISIS claims attacked Egypt-Israel gas line, gas flow undisrupted

ISIS claimed that it had detonated a number of explosives next to a pipeline linking "the Jews" and "the apostate Egyptian government."

By TZVI JOFFRE FEBRUARY 3, 2020 18:46

Militants attacked a gas pipeline in Egypt’s northern Sinai Peninsula on Sunday night, reportedly aiming to disrupt gas flow between Israel and Egypt. Israeli authorities said gas supply between the countries remained unaffected. The Islamic State’s Sinai Province affiliate claimed responsibility on Monday for the attack on the pipeline. Local sources told Paris-based AFP that the gas pipeline targeted was in fact a domestic supply line for a local power station. In a statement, the Sinai affiliate said it had detonated a number of explosives next to a pipeline linking “the Jews” and “the apostate Egyptian government,” and had caused damage to the pipeline. The attack happened near the city of El-Arish, with initial reports claiming that the targeted pipeline was a line carrying gas from Israel’s Leviathan gas platform to Egypt. The partners operating the offshore platform stated that no damage had been caused to the EMG pipeline connecting the countries, and gas flow was continuing as usual.  Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz’s office stated on Sunday night that gas was continuing to flow from Israel to Egypt and it was working with relevant authorities to investigate the nature of the incident.   Reports on Monday morning stated that the pipeline that was hit by the attack was actually a domestic one that leads to a power station in El-Arish, which supplies electricity to homes and factories in the central Sinai, according to AFP. Israel started exporting natural gas to its southern neighbor last month from the Leviathan field, which commenced operations on January 6. Exports follow a $15 billion, decade-long deal, signed by energy firms Delek Drilling and Houston-based Noble Energy in February 2018, to supply 64 billion cubic meters of natural gas to Egypt from the Leviathan and Tamar gas fields, located off Israel’s coast. Gas will be supplied to Egypt’s Dolphinus Holdings via a 90 km. subsea pipeline, connecting the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon to the Egyptian network near El-Arish.  Delek Drilling CEO Yossi Abu told an investors’ conference on Monday that the project had a “very significant security system,” Reuters reported. “We are not blind to the risk and are prepared for every scenario,” said Abu, citing the presence of an alternative pipeline system, a quick response mechanism and insurance covering damage impacting gas exports to Egypt and Jordan.  Last year, Egypt paid a $500m. fine to Israel for backing out of an agreement to provide natural gas, following jihadist attacks on the pipeline in the Sinai Peninsula. Previous militant attacks closed the long-dormant pipeline, then-operated by Egyptian gas transport company Gasco, a subsidiary of the national gas company EGAS, for weeks. At the time that the gas supply was halted in 2012, gas flow in the opposite direction from Egypt to Israel was supplying the latter with more than 40% of its natural gas needs to produce electricity. Terrorists blew up the gas line in the Sinai three times during the first six months of 2011.  Eytan Halon and JTA contributed to this report.

A Light in the Darkness

By Hal Lindsey

Two facts about our times stand in stark contrast. The first is just how well things are going. With dangers growing on every side, the world seems to be doing amazingly well. There are some rough spots, but generally people are rising out of poverty, living longer, and living more comfortably. In the United States, life expectancy has dropped slightly over the last few years, but is holding relatively steady. The economy continues to grow, wages continue to rise, and more people are working than ever. We are the beneficiaries of astounding technological advances that impact every area of our lives. The obvious conclusion is that things are great. People should be happier than ever. But they’re not. I just said that life expectancy in the US has dipped slightly in recent years. Stop and think about that. We spend almost 18% of the nation’s gross domestic product on health care. Every year, scientists make tremendous advances in medicine and medical technology. Yet life expectancy has been falling since 2015. How is that possible? The answer is that, in the midst of these “good times,” people are stressed and miserable. The folks at the Centers for Disease Control don’t say it like that. They blame the drop in life expectancy primarily on three things — suicide, drug overdoses, and liver disease due primarily to growing levels of alcoholism. Think about those three things. Each one is a symptom of hopelessness. You see the contradiction. Things are going well. So why do so many people feel stressed, hopeless, and miserable? There are many answers to this question. But it can be summarized by something Jesus said. In Matthew 7:24-25, He said, “Everyone who hears these words of Mine, and acts upon them, may be compared to a wise man, who built his house upon the rock. And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and burst against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded upon the rock.” For a long time, most Americans including those who did not consider themselves Christians, held God’s word in high esteem. However imperfectly, they tried to live by things like the Golden Rule. In court, they swore to tell the truth with a hand on the Bible. But today, influential Americans primarily in the media and academics hold the Bible up to ridicule.  To them, it’s good for a laugh. And that brings us to the rest of the Lord’s statement. In verses 26 and 27, He said, “And everyone who hears these words of Mine, and does not act upon them, will be like a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand. And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and burst against that house; and it fell, and great was its fall.” No wonder people are miserable. They feel the early trembling of an imminent fall. They have cut themselves off from the Source of life, joy, and fulfillment. Terrible as the situation is, it has created an amazing opportunity for followers of Jesus. In John 12:36, Jesus called His followers “the children of light.” In every way we can — using television, the internet, and every part of our everyday lives — we must let the light of Jesus shine out into a dark and forbidding world. And we must do so with urgency.

Two people stabbed, police shoot knifeman in London ‘terrorist-related incident’

2 Feb, 2020 15:11 / Updated 21 hours ago

London police have shot a man dead in the city’s Streatham area in a “terrorist” incident. Two people have been stabbed, and the incident has been described as "Islamist-related." Armed police officers descended on the London suburb of Streatham on Sunday afternoon, and shot a knife-wielding criminal dead. The Metropolitan Police said on Twitter that the perpetrator stabbed and injured two people, and that the incident has been declared “terrorist-related.” Police later clarified that the incident was "part of a proactive Counter Terrorism operation," and that the stabbing attack was likely "Islamist-related." One of the victims is in hospital with life-threatening injuries. Another victim was stabbed and is in less serious condition. A third was injured by glass following the police shooting.  Video footage shared on social media shows a man lying on the ground outside a shuttered pharmacy, as armed police officers train their weapons on his unmoving body. The man was wearing what looked like a suicide vest, but police later declared it a "hoax device." Police have advised the public to avoid the scene of Sunday’s shooting while emergency services deal with the aftermath. Patrols in the area will be stepped up following the attack. London’s mayor, Sadiq Khan, thanked police for their swift response, and said “Terrorists seek to divide us and destroy our way of life - here in London we will never let them succeed.” The incident comes two months after police in London shot a jihadist terrorist dead on London Bridge, after he stabbed two people to death. The murderer had a history of terror offenses and was described by a judge several years earlier as a “serious jihadi.” He was on parole at the time of his stabbing spree.

Russia and Turkey standoff over Syria fighting

According to reports the Syrian regime forces have successfully taken ground against various extremist groups in Idlib in recent weeks, capturing Ma’arat al-Numan.

By SETH J. FRANTZMAN FEBRUARY 2, 2020 20:45

Hundreds have been killed in Syria in fighting that spanned around 50 km. from western Aleppo to the town of Saraqib in Syria’s Idlib province. The fighting appears to pit Russian-backed Syrian regime forces against areas where Turkish-backed Syrian rebels and extremists are located.  But Turkey and Russia are also working on an S-400 air-defense deal and energy deals, making the Idlib fighting a depressing sideshow to the real agenda of Moscow and Ankara. According to reports, Syrian regime forces have successfully taken ground against various extremist groups in Idlib in recent weeks, capturing Ma’arat al-Numan. This caps months of fighting in which the Syrian regime and Russian airpower have slowly strangled Idlib, where many hundreds of thousands of Syrians have fled over the years. Idlib is dominated by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), a group that was once Syria’s version of al-Qaeda. In September 2018, Turkey and Russia signed a deal in Idlib to create a demilitarized zone between the two sides. Turkey has set up a dozen observation points in Syria. But its real goal in Syria is to defeat the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), and it has recruited Syrians from Idlib to fight in Afrin and other areas where hundreds of thousands of Kurds have been driven from their homes. Turkey is trying to send Syrian rebels to fight in Libya, hoping to remove them before the regime takes back their areas. Millions of Syrians live in Turkey and hope the Turkish government will do more to stop the Russian-backed offensive. Russia has been backing the Syrian regime for years and hopes to help it retake most of Syria. But Turkey occupies part of northern Syria, meaning that the fighting in Idlib now brings the two countries closer to a mistake that could lead to wider tensions. Ankara and Moscow are jostling for control of the narrative. The UN, which has watched some 12 million people being displaced and made refugees in Syria’s fighting over the years, is calling once again for an end to the hostilities. Meanwhile, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says 205 people have been killed in the last week, UNICEF says 6,500 children are fleeing daily, and 300,000 people have fled since December. A Turkish military convoy has entered Syria’s Idlib, Russia’s TASS news agency and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) both reported. These dozens of vehicles could help hammer out a new ceasefire line with Russia and new Turkish observation points. Russia says Idlib is controlled by “illegal armed groups,” and it seems to distinguish between Turkish-backed militants and the extremists in Idlib. The reality is more complex. Turkey likely is watching Russia decimate HTS with hopes that the Syrians in Idlib will run to Turkish-controlled Kurdish areas of Afrin and be resettled where Kurds once lived, becoming dependent on Turkey for protection. The concept is to move Syrian Arab rebels to areas where Kurds were to create a buffer. Turkey claims it is threatened by the Kurdish PKK, which it views as terrorists. It says the US has backed the PKK in eastern Syria, which it invaded last October. Then, Turkey and Russia signed a deal in eastern Syria. This means Turkey and Russia have effectively partitioned Syria. Syria’s government is not happy about this and wants the Turks to leave. Turkey wants the US to end support for the Kurds in Eastern Syria. Russia wants to sell Turkey S-400s while using Idlib as leverage. Idlib is also home to some ISIS members, as well as people who fled ISIS-held areas in Baghouz last year. ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed in a US raid in Idlib last year. Additionally, ISIS took Yazidi captives to Idlib from 2017 to 2019. If Idlib falls to the regime, Turkey will be pressured to take in many people fleeing the province.  The fighting and pressure brought by the regime has led Syrian opposition groups to launch their own minor offensive near Aleppo, a city they lost in 2016. They hope to take pressure off other areas in Idlib. The overall picture is not of a massive battle across all of Idlib’s long front line, but of small battles in certain areas. This is likely because of some deals that have been made between Turkey and Russia regarding certain sectors that the Syrian regime will operate in. Syrian regime forces and Russian air-force commanders have been careful to avoid harming Turkish forces in Idlib and neighboring areas.  The question now is whether the fighting will grow and boil over to other parts of Idlib or rebel-held areas. Turkey hopes that UN, EU and US pressure might get Russia and the regime to pause. But Turkey is in an awkward position. It needs S-400s to keep its prestige as much as it does not want its observation points in Syria humiliated. It must continue to work with Russia and Iran regarding Syria, as it has done since 2017. And Turkey needs to deal with Russia in Libya, where the countries back opposing sides. Turkey also wants to be a champion of the Palestinian issue, hosting Hamas over the weekend. The hundreds of thousands of Syrians fleeing the regime’s offensive are therefore not a priority. But they cannot be allowed to flood into Turkey, and their displacement must be managed. Syria’s regime knows this and operates slowly and consistently, pressuring and then stopping, pressuring and stopping, to give Turkey time to release the pressure each time.  Turkish pro-government media reflects Ankara’s narrative. It generally ignores Idlib fighting, only noting that the Turkish-backed Syrian rebels are trying to retake ground near Aleppo.  Turkey’s Daily Sabah reminds readers this is an area that Turkey took in 2016 in northern Syria. Anadolu, another pro-government news agency, does not even mention Idlib. Turkey hopes the whole thing will just go away with a new deal in Moscow.

Top Democrats fume after Trump expands travel ban to six new countries

By Adam Shaw | Fox News

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was one of a number of top Democrats to rip into President Trump’s decision to expand the travel ban to include six more countries on Friday -- with Pelosi describing it as “discrimination disguised as policy.” “The Trump administration’s expansion of its outrageous, un-American travel ban threatens our security, our values and the rule of law," she said in a statement. "The sweeping rule, barring more than 350 million individuals from predominantly African nations from traveling to the United States, is discrimination disguised as policy." TRUMP ADMINISTRATION EXPANDS TRAVEL BAN TO SIX MORE COUNTRIES The Trump administration is expanding .  The initial ban was branded by critics as a “Muslirestrictions to include Burma, Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria, Tanzania and Sudan. Those are added to the current seven countries already included in the ban: Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela and Yemenm ban,” noting that President Trump had promised such a ban during his campaign and that the initial countries (which did not include North Korea and Venezuela, but did include Chad) were Muslim-majority countries. But after multiple court challenges, the Supreme Court upheld its constitutionality in 2018. For Burma, Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan and Nigeria, the restrictions will apply to immigrant visas -- for those seeking to live or work in the U.S. permanently. For Sudan and Tanzania, the restrictions are being placed on diversity visas -- that come from the controversial diversity lottery program that grants visas to prospective immigrants randomly each year. The initial seven countries have restrictions on both immigrant and non-immigrant visas, but Acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Chad Wolf told reporters that the six countries announced Friday are very different from the current seven, which is why the restrictions are lighter. “These countries, for the most part, want to be helpful, want to do the right thing, have relationships with the U.S. and are in some cases improving relations, but for a variety of different reasons failed to meet those minimum requirements that we laid out,” he said. Criteria considered when judging countries included to what extent the countries share information on passports and prospective bad actors, as well as whether or not the country poses an elevated national security risk in relation to crime, terrorism and illegal immigration. But the more nuanced approach did not appear to soften Democratic complaints about the move. “With this latest callous decision, the President has doubled down on his cruelty and further undermined our global leadership, our Constitution and our proud heritage as a nation of immigrants,” Pelosi said. IRANIAN STUDENT WHOSE DEPORTATION SPURRED DEM OUTCRY HAS FAMILY TIES TO IRGC, HEZBOLLAH: DHS OFFICIAL Pelosi pledged that Democrats will oppose the ban in the courts and in Congress. She said that the House Judiciary Committee will mark up and send the “NO BAN Act” to the House floor. That legislation prohibits religious discrimination in immigration-related decisions. It also imposes restrictions on the president’s authority to restrict immigration -- forcing the administration to provide evidence of such a need to Congress for that restriction. Some 2020 candidates also weighed in on the ban's expansion. Sen. Elizabeth Warren called it a “racist, xenophobic” ban, and called on Congress to pass the NO BAN Act while also pledging to reverse what she called the “Muslim ban” on the first day of her presidency, if elected. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., meanwhile, called it a “racist travel policy that dehumanizes immigrants and their families for [Trump’s] own political purposes." Former Vice President Joe Biden said Trump was "adding more countries to his list of who's not welcome in America" and promised to end the ban if elected. Later, Biden wrote on Twitter that the ban was a "disgrace." The expanded travel restrictions are one of a number of ways the administration is trying to enhance efforts to better vet potential immigrants. The administration announced Thursday that the public charge rule -- which restricts green cards to immigrants deemed likely to rely on welfare -- will go into effect in February after the Supreme Court allowed it. That rule too has seen significant Democratic opposition.

Australia's capital lifts state of emergency as fire threat subsides

Jonathan Barrett, Will Ziebell 3 Min Read

SYDNEY/MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Wildfires that threatened Australia’s capital, Canberra, over the weekend have been brought under control as containment lines held and hot and windy conditions eased, prompting authorities to lift a state of emergency. While fire in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), home to the capital city, has spread to more than 55,000 hectares (136,000 acres), close to a quarter of the territory’s entire landmass, the heat fuelling the danger is subsiding. ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr said the threat was not yet over and that there may be weeks of firefighting ahead. “We may need to return to a state of emergency if the situation requires it,” he said on Sunday. The ACT declared a state of emergency leading into the weekend, which gave authorities greater powers to order evacuations, close roads and take control of properties as fire threatened suburban areas. It was the first time an emergency was declared in Australia’s capital since 2003 when fires destroyed almost 500 houses and led to four deaths. But containment lines supported by airdrops of fire retardant helped keep the blaze back over the weekend, even in the face of wild winds and elevated temperatures which only fell in the capital overnight on Saturday, according to Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology. The dangerous conditions started to ease on Sunday, and there is favorable weather - and even rain - forecast for the rest of the week in the nation’s capital. Australia’s prolonged bushfire season has killed 33 people and an estimated 1 billion native animals since September. About 2,500 homes have been destroyed and more than 11.7 million hectares of tinder-dry bushland have been razed. The fire in the southern tip of the ACT also crossed into the state of New South Wales (NSW) and destroyed some homes, authorities said on Sunday. Seventy fires were burning across NSW late on Sunday afternoon, with 30 of those not contained. NSW Health issued a statement saying air quality would be poor in parts of the state, including Sydney, due to a combination of bushfire smoke and dust blowing in from drought-hit areas. Affected residents were urged to stay indoors and minimize physical activity, NSW Health said, adding those with chronic respiratory and cardiovascular conditions are particularly at risk. Parts of NSW were struck by thunderstorms late on Sunday which helped douse flames, although authorities said storms could also trigger new fires. “Widespread thunderstorms and lightning strikes today may produce new ignitions,” the NSW Rural Fire Service said in a tweet. “Cooler conditions have seen reduced fire activity across most firegrounds today.”

U.S. killed a top al-Qaida leader in Yemen, reports say

Sean D. NaylorNational Security Correspondent ,Yahoo News•January 31, 2020

The leader of al-Qaida’s Yemen branch is believed to have been killed in a U.S. airstrike earlier this year. The New York Times said three current or former U.S. officials “expressed confidence” that Qasim al-Raymi, the emir of al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), was killed in Yemen, although there was no official confirmation. U.S. forces had been tracking al-Raymi for months, and there was a $10 million price on his head. It is unclear whether the strike was carried out by the U.S. military or the CIA. Spokespersons for U.S. Central Command, the National Security Council and the CIA declined to comment. For more than five years, al-Raymi, a native of Yemen, had eluded U.S. forces as he led what experts sometimes refer to as al-Qaida’s “most dangerous franchise.” If confirmed, his death would be “very significant,” said Mick Mulroy, who was deputy assistant secretary of defense for the Middle East until late last year. “He’s a real bad actor,” said Mulroy, who is also a retired CIA paramilitary operations officer and an ABC news analyst. “This is a big win for us.” Al-Raymi, 41, had been on the United States’ radar for years. After training other militants in al-Qaida training camps in Afghanistan during the 1990s, he returned to Yemen and became a commander of AQAP, according to the U.S. government’s Rewards for Justice website. In 2005 he was sentenced to five years in prison for planning to assassinate the U.S. ambassador, but he escaped the following year. Since then he has been linked to some of AQAP’s highest-profile attacks, including a September 2008 assault on the U.S. Embassy in the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, that killed 10 Yemeni guards and six civilians. After swearing allegiance to al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, al-Raymi was named the emir of AQAP in 2015. The United States offered a $5 million reward for information on his whereabouts in 2014 and raised it to $10 million in 2018. This was not the first time the United States had tried to get al-Raymi. He was the target of the Jan. 29, 2017, special operations raid in which Navy SEAL Ryan Owens was killed, according to Mulroy. “The United States never forgets,” he said.

Bone-Chilling! New cold records set in Russia: Magadan and Yakutia region suffer temperatures of -56C (-68.8F). ‘The wind chill sensation could go to -61°C

Earthwindmap

Not much ice will be melting a -56C (-68.8F). Every day of the past week in the Magadan region the frosts grew stronger, and over the past day, the air temperature dropped below the norm by 8.5 degrees. But in continental areas, temperature set new records. In the village of Talon, on January 24, the temperature dropped to -46.2C (-51.1 F), which is 0.2 degrees below the previous record set in 1978. But these are not the lowest temperatures in Russia. In the east of Yakutia last night, frosts intensified to -56C (-68.8F). ‘The wind chill sensation could go to -61°C in this region.’ Ice Age Now

'Biblical' Locust Plague With Mega-Swarms The Size Of Cities Descends On East Africa

by Tyler Durden Mon, 01/27/2020 - 02:45

As if the world's facing a looming new global pandemic weren't enough, here's yet another rare occurrence of apocalyptic proportions threatening to devastate the economy and way of life on an entire continent: the worse outbreak of desert locusts in seventy years is ravaging East Africaspecifically Kenya as hundreds of millions have swarmed in from Somolia and Ethiopia, reports the Associated Press. The hum of millions of locusts on the move is broken by the screams of farmers and the clanging of pots and pans. But their noise-making does little to stop the voracious insects from feasting on their crops in this rural community. The by all accounts "huge" infestation is threatening to devastate communities and a region already long struggling with food security. One news source likened it to a Biblical Locust Plague With Swarms the Size of Cities. The invading locusts are "deadly" in the sense that these 'mega-swarms' devour crops at incredibly rapid pace — at a faster rate of destruction than other natural disasters. The numbers and immediate destructive force are staggering, according to quotes in the AP:

About 70,000 hectares (172,973 acres) of land in Kenya are already infested.

A single swarm can contain up to 150 million locusts per square kilometer of farmland, an area the size of almost 250 football fields, regional authorities say.

One especially large swarm in northeastern Kenya measured 60 kilometers long by 40 kilometers wide (37 miles long by 25 miles wide).

Farmers are afraid to let their cattle out for grazing, and their crops of millet, sorghum and maize are vulnerable, but there is little they can do.

Even cows are wondering what is happening,” one local farmer laments in the AP report. “Corn, sorghum, cowpeas, they have eaten everything.” This as the mega-swarms consume the very fodder the livestock survive on. There's additional concern that new rains after March could bring another explosion of the fast breeding locusts prior to the dry season taking their numbers back down. The UN Food and Agricultural Organization is reportedly mobilizing an emergency response, given even small swarms can wipe out crop fields at sizes constituting enough food that could have fed tens of thousands of people in a single day, which makes it a humanitarian disaster in the making. It's both the nature of their small size (about a finger's length) and the fact that they swarm in millions at a time that make preventative measures nearly impossible. The UN agency listed some creative but futile methods suggested and/or initiated in the past: “Although giant nets, flamethrowers, lasers and huge vacuums have been proposed in the past, these are not in use for locust control.” It added, “People and birds often eat locusts but usually not enough to significantly reduce population levels over large areas.”

Cruelty to Animals Gets More Media Coverage than Beheaded Christians

by Giulio Meotti January 26, 2020 at 5:00 am

The Bishops' Conference of Nigeria described the area as "killing fields", like the ones the Khmer Rouge created in Cambodia to exterminate the population.

"We are Aramaic people and we don't have this right to have anyone protect us? Look upon us as frogs, we'll accept that -- just protect us so we can stay in our land". — Nicodemus Daoud Sharaf, the Syrian Orthodox Archbishop of Mosul the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan, home to many of the Christians who fled jihadis, National Catholic Register, April 7, 2017.

In an era of round-the-clock information... the abominations suffered by Christians have been left without images, while the brutality against the Chinese pig was streamed all over. Christians are an endangered species; pigs are not.

One of the last Nigerian Christians was executed by an Islamic State child soldier. Slaughterhouses' workers go on trial in France for abuses to animals. But the same France has already repatriated more than 250 ISIS fighters, the same people who turn Iraqi churches into slaughterhouses.

First there was the beheading of 11 Nigerian Christians during the recent Christmas celebration. The next day, a Catholic woman, Martha Bulus, was beheaded in the Nigerian state of Borno with her bridesmaids, five days before the wedding. Then there was a raid on the village of Gora-Gan in the Nigerian state of Kaduna, where terrorists shot anyone they met in the square where the evangelical community had gathered, killing two young Christian women. There was also a Christian student killed by Islamic extremists who recorded his execution. Then pastor Lawan Andimi, a local leader of the Christian Association of Nigeria, was beheaded. "Every day", says Father Joseph Bature Fidelis, of the Diocese of Maiduguri, "Our brothers and sisters are slaughtered in the streets. Please help us not be silent in the face of this immense extermination that is taking place in silence". The Bishops' Conference of Nigeria described the area as "killing fields", like the ones the Khmer Rouge created in Cambodia to exterminate the population. Most of the 4,300 Christians killed for their faith during the last year came from Nigeria. Nina Shea, an expert in Religious Freedom, recently wrote: "An ongoing Islamic extremist project to exterminate Christians in sub-Saharan Africa is even more brutal and more consequential for the Church than it is in the Middle East, the place where Christians suffered ISIS 'genocide', as the U.S. government officially designated." Unfortunately, the murder of these Christians during the last month has been largely ignored by the Western media. "A slow-motion war is under way in Africa's most populous country. It's a massacre of Christians, massive in scale and horrific in brutality and the world has hardly noticed", wrote the French philosopher, Bernard Henri Lévy. While Christians were murdered in Nigeria, the global media ran a story of a pig being tied up and shoved off a bungee tower at a new theme park in China. The story went viral on BBC, The Independent, The New York Times, Sky News, Deutsche Welle and many other mainstream media outlets. The Chinese pig got more media coverage than any of these murdered Christians in Nigeria. You often have to search for these martyrs on local African sites. "Pig Bungee Jumping Stunt In China Prompts Global Outcry", wrote the Huffington Post. Where has been the global outcry for the serial butchering of Christians just because they are Christians? The killing of a gorilla in a Cincinnati zoo, committed to save a child's life, triggered more emotion and media coverage than the beheading of 21 Christians on a beach in Libya while they invoked the name of Jesus in Arabic and whispered prayers. ABC, CBS and NBC devoted six times more coverage to the death of one gorilla than they did on the mass execution of Christians. "The world prefers to worry about pandas rather than about us, threatened with extinction in the land where we were born", said Nicodemus Daoud Sharaf, the Syrian Orthodox Archbishop of Mosul as well as a refugee in Erbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan, home to many of the Christians who fled jihadis. When the Archbishop said that four years ago, it looked as if it were just provocation to shock Western public opinion. But Archbishop Sharaf was right. The French-Lebanese writer Amin Maalouf also noted "threats to pandas cause more emotion" than threats to Christians. Archbishop Sharaf gave another example: "In Australia they take care of frogs. One of our Syriac citizens, who's a builder, bought land, took money from a bank and wanted to build houses and sell them. Then when he wanted to get a certificate to build, in the middle of the land, he came across a hole with eight frogs in it. The government of Sydney told him: 'You can't build on this land'. He said: 'But I've taken money from the bank and I must get to work' and they pushed him to build in another place, making him pay $1.4 million to build a different place for these eight frogs. And yet we are the last people who speak Jesus' language. We are Aramaic people and we don't have this right to have anyone protect us? Look upon us as frogs, we'll accept that — just protect us so we can stay in our land". In an era of round-the-clock information on our mobile phones, computers, televisions and social media, the abominations suffered by Christians have been left without images, while the brutality against the Chinese pig was streamed all over. Christians are an endangered species; pigs are not. "The International Union for the Conservation of Nature has several categories to define the danger of extinction that various species face today", according to Benedict Kiely, the founder of Nasarean.org, which helps the Christians of the Middle East. "Using a percentage of population decline, the categories range from 'vulnerable species' (a 30-50 per cent decline), to 'critically endangered' (80-90 per cent) and finally to extinction. The Christian population of Iraq has shrunk by 83 per cent, putting it in the category of 'critically endangered'". If you search for a cover dedicated to this extinction you have to go on the confessional media, such as the British weekly Catholic Herald, which just noted "The end of Iraqi Christianity?" Or the French Catholic media, La Croix, telling the story of Syrian Christians: "Before the start of the civil war in 2012, 20,000 Assyrians populated the banks of the Khabur, a river that crosses northeastern Syria and flows into the Euphrates. The occupation of part of the region by Isis in 2015 forced the majority into exile. The Khabur is today a dead valley". One of the last Nigerian Christians was executed by an Islamic State child soldier. Slaughterhouses' workers go on trial in France for abuses to animals. But the same France has already repatriated more than 250 ISIS fighters, the same people who turn Iraqi churches into slaughterhouses. Western media stirred global indignation about Russia's laws against "homosexual propaganda" prior to the Winter Olympics in Sochi. But the same Western media never protested the Islamist regimes that punish people with the death for converting to Christianity or countries where Christians are threatened with death if they do not convert to Islam. Mauro Armanino, a priest of the Society for African Missions in Niger, who describes a situation of open genocide, writes: "The repeated threats to the Christian communities in the border area with Burkina Faso have achieved the aim they set: to decapitate the communities and then fall prey to the fear of professing faith in Sunday prayers in the chapels....On Tuesday, January 14, in a village not far from Bomoanga, which, for over a year, has helplessly witnessed the kidnapping of Father Pierluigi Maccalli, a group of criminals who went to settle the scores with the chief nurse who works in a dispensary in the area, took the nephew from his home and was beheaded. In Bomoanga people no longer go to church on Sunday". These persecuted Christians feel more and more alone in a world that sees them as intruders. They are as if suspended in a limbo, between an amnesic and weak West and a rising radical Islam. There seems to be no way to push the Western world to become aware of this tragedy that no one talks about and which could have fatal consequences for the future of our civilization. "Out of fatigue or shame, or both, we close our eyes", writes Franz-Olivier Giesbert. "Does the life of Christians from East, Africa or Asia count for a negligible amount? This is a question that we have the right to ask when we see the place that our dear media give to the killings and discrimination that Catholics and Protestants are subjected to on the planet: nothing or almost nothing, with a few happy exceptions. It is our hypocrisy that feeds the clash of civilizations". So, shall we now return to our hypocritical indignation about the cruelty inflicted on Chinese pigs? Giulio Meotti, Cultural Editor for Il Foglio, is an Italian journalist and author.

UFOpen for business: Britain’s Royal Air Force to declassify X-Files kept in secret for years

27 Jan, 2020 09:52 / Updated 2 days ago

After decades of secrecy, the UK’s Royal Air Force (RAF) will now publish its entire record of UFO sightings above British territory, in an unprecedented move which is sure to spark even more conspiracy theories. The RAF closed down its ‘UFO desk’ in 2009 after 50 years of reports in which no serious threat was identified. Records from this RAF unit were traditionally sent to the National Archives, where they were kept as classified documents. Now, however, the most recent reports will be placed in an online archive on a dedicated gov.uk page, according to a Freedom of Information request submitted by the PA news agency. “It had been assessed that it would be better to publish these records, rather than continue sending documents to the National Archives, and so they are looking to put them onto a dedicated gov.uk web page,” a spokesperson for the RAF said. The declassification clearance process is already under way and the spokesperson expects they will be published online “some time within the first quarter of 2020.” The archives are comprised entirely of correspondence with members of the public, who have had to file UFO sighting reports with local police since the RAF closed its UFO desk. The RAF spokesperson was careful not to confirm or deny the existence of aliens, however, merely stating that: “The MoD has no opinion on the existence or otherwise of extra terrestrial life and does not investigate UFO reports.” As recently as January 21, there were UFO sightings over London, in broad daylight no less, so the new archives are likely to be a hotspot for X-Files enthusiasts and internet sleuths alike. “When I worked on the MoD’s ‘UFO desk’ we didn’t find definitive proof of extraterrestrial visitation, but there were so many bizarre and unexplained sightings that we didn’t entirely rule it out,” said Nick Pope, who used to investigate reports of UFO sightings for the MoD. As expected, many weren’t buying the upcoming disclosure and instead fell back on old conspiracy theories.

Dead Hand: Russian Real-Life Doomsday Machine

by Tyler Durden Sun, 01/26/2020 - 23:25

Submitted by SouthFront,

The existing system of international relations and arms control treaties is slowly, but steadily crumbling. The Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty is dead, with both Washington and Moscow publicly developing previously banned short-to-medium range missiles. The New START (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty) is also moving towards its end in 2021, and it is likely that New START will not be renewed. The United States, China and Russia are developing hypersonic weapons, which are not limited by any existing arms control treaties. The major powers are preparing for a possible global conflict. The dismantlement of the system of international treaties is another factor increasing military tensions around the world. Russia is actively working towards restoring lost Soviet capabilities and developing new strategic deterrence projects. One of them is the Dead Hand, also known as the Perimeter. This Cold War-era automatic nuclear weapons-control system is one of the most protected secrets and most important deterrence tools of the USSR and Russia. The Dead Hand is the last line of deterrence in the event of a crippling nuclear strike. It entered into service in 1985, shortly after a major escalation in 1983, which had almost led to war between the US and the Soviet Union. It has been likened to a real-life doomsday machine. Upon activation and determination of an ongoing nuclear strike, the system sends out command missiles with special warheads that pass encrypted launch commands to all nuclear weapon carriers of the sea, air and ground components of the Russian Strategic Nuclear Forces. In peacetime conditions, the system slumbers, waiting for a turn-on command or an alarm signal from the missile attack early-warning system. It has a human “firewall,” for example, an on-duty officer who would switch it into the fully automated mode. Therefore, there is no risk of an accidental or unauthorized missile launch. Having received a command or signal about missiles being launched from the territory of other countries, this Dead Hand goes into an automated combat mode. Through a wide-scale sensor network, it monitors signs of an incoming nuclear strike. The decision to launch command missiles is made by an autonomous control and command system – a complex pseudo-artificial intelligence system. The system receives and analyzes a variety of information about seismic activity, radiation, atmospheric pressure, and the intensity of chatter on military radio frequencies. It monitors telemetry from the observation posts of the strategic missile force and data from early warning systems. Before launching, the system reportedly checks for four conditions: Once the system is activated it first determines if a nuclear explosion has taken place on Russian territory; If this is determined, the system will then check the communication link with the General Staff operation center; If a connection is established the system will After some time – from 15 minutes to 1 hour – passing without any further signs of an attack, it will assume that a number of the officials with the authority to give the order to strike are still alive and the system will shut down; If the General Staff operation center does not respond, the system sends a request to Kazbek, the automatic system for command and control of the Strategic Nuclear Forces. If there is no response there either, the system automatically transfers launch authority to the command bunker personnel and launches the retaliatory strike. All of the channels through which the Dead Hand receives its information are backed up multiple times, to remove the possibility of false information being fed to it. According to openly available data, the Dead Hand is an integral part of the “Zveno” system of air command posts, the development of which was carried out in the Soviet Union. The “Zveno” includes the airborne command and control post on the Il-86VKP aircraft, airborne radio relay on the Il-76RT aircraft, silo-based command missiles ‘Perimeter’ and mobile command missiles ‘Gorn’. In a period of threat, three Il-86VKPs would have the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, the Defense Minister and the Chief of the General Staff respectively on board. The Il-86VKP is able to launch an 8 km long antenna, which not even impulses from nuclear explosions can affect. Using this antenna the aircraft can transmit commands to launch all the country’s intercontinental missiles even if all underground command posts are destroyed by the aggressor’s nuclear strike. The radio relay aircraft Il-76RT would transmit commands to launch missiles in distant regions, including those deployed on submarines. In this way, the Dead Hand guarantees a devastating retaliatory strike in the event of communications disruption and the destruction of command posts after the first-strike surprise nuclear attack by the enemy. Its command missiles launch their warheads into space, where no hostile satellite or nuclear explosions can reach them and from there “wake up” nuclear forces to strike the aggressor. The dissolution of the USSR in 1991 led to a deep social and economic crisis on the territory of the former Soviet republics. The Russian Armed Forces also entered a period of crisis. In 1995, the Dead Hand was removed from combat duty. After the start of the ‘Putin era’ and the restoration of proper funding for the Russian Armed Forces in the 2000s, national security once again became one of the key priorities of the Russian leadership. In 2011, it was officially confirmed that the Dead Hand had been put on combat duty. The successful test launch of the 15Yu75 missile took place in Plesetsk in 2016. Furthermore, the Dead Hand is also being modernized. In December 2019, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced plans to sign a contract for the new Sirena-M missile complex. The Sirena-M is the most modern variant of the “command missile system” and “command missile” for the Dead Hand. The tests of the Sirena-M missile, which is based on the first version of the Topol intercontinental ballistic missile, began in 1990. All of them were carried out successfully. The Sirena-M system will enter service in the period up to 2025.

BREAKING: Coronavirus Hits 15% Fatality Rate, 83% Infection Rate for Those Exposed; Lancet Publishes Early Study That Points to Alarming Consequences for Humanity

Saturday, January 25, 2020 by: Mike Adams

(Natural News) BREAKING: The U.S. news media is currently running about one to two days behind the Chinese media in covering the bombshell revelations surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. Natural News has Chinese-speaking investigators on the ground in Taiwan, and they’re scanning the Chinese media for the most important announcements. Earlier today, the Taiwan media began reporting on a new mainland Chinese study that specifically looked at the individuals involved in this Wuhan coronavirus outbreak. We have a partial translation and link below. According to this news, which is widely circulating in the Taiwan press and is based on a study published in The Lancet, the Wuhan coronavirus fatality rate has leaped to 15%, and the infection rate among those exposed is 83%. These numbers are virtually unheard of in the world of microbiology and infectious disease transmission. It means that 15 out of every 100 infected people will die. It also means that 83 out of 100 exposed people will become infected and able to transmit the disease to others. So for every 100 people who are exposed, around 12 will die (15% of 83). The only criticism of this study is that its sample size was relatively small, given that it’s still very early in the outbreak of this disease. The study looked at 41 cases of individuals who were exposed. If the infection rate stands at 83%, this pandemic will be impossible to contain The story is from TaiwanDaily.net and says this (translated): Hong Kong and Chinese researchers published the latest research on “New Coronavirus 2019” (referred to as “Wuhan pneumonia”) in the medical journal “Lancet” on the 24th. Chinese experts pointed directly to the disease. The [fatality] rate is fifteen percent. Hong Kong experts confirmed for the first time that Wuhan pneumonia can be transmitted from person to person, and patients may not have surface symptoms. Taking a Shenzhen seven-person home with six people as an example, the analysis shows that the attack rate is as high as 83% and the incubation period is three to six days It is expected that a large number of cases will break out in China within a week, and the next two weeks will be a crucial period to prevent any place from becoming “another Wuhan”. The same article also reveals the recorded rate of symptoms among those who are infected: Overall, 98% of the symptoms were fever, 76% coughing, 44% muscle pain or feeling tired. With 98% showing fever, this means that one out of 50 people infected will show no fever and therefore easily bypass current screening methods that are practiced by health officials. If one in 50 infected people is able to get through screening that’s primarily looking for fever and respiratory symptoms, it means this outbreak is highly unlikely to be contained. The article from Taiwan also describes the slow progression of symptoms, in some cases taking as long as eight days to appear: As a result, one person had fever and diarrhea in Wuhan one day; many relatives they visited also began to have fever and cough on the fourth day; another did not go to Wuhan, but lived with four family members who were subsequently diagnosed, and the eighth day also began Found physical discomfort and confirmed the illness. The Lancet publishes the study: More details As we were working on this story, The Lancet study appeared, providing more details and a direct link to the research article. You can find it here:

https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(20)30183-5/ fulltext

The findings:

By Jan 2, 2020, 41 admitted hospital patients had been identified as having laboratory-confirmed 2019-nCoV infection. Most of the infected patients were men (30 [73%] of 41); less than half had underlying diseases (13 [32%]), including diabetes (eight [20%]), hypertension (six [15%]), and cardiovascular disease (six [15%]). Median age was 49·0 years (IQR 41·0–58·0). 27 (66%) of 41 patients had been exposed to Huanan seafood market. One family cluster was found. Common symptoms at onset of illness were fever (40 [98%] of 41 patients), cough (31 [76%]), and myalgia or fatigue (18 [44%]); less common symptoms were sputum production (11 [28%] of 39), headache (three [8%] of 38), haemoptysis (two [5%] of 39), and diarrhoea (one [3%] of 38). Dyspnoea developed in 22 (55%) of 40 patients (median time from illness onset to dyspnoea 8·0 days [IQR 5·0–13·0]). 26 (63%) of 41 patients had lymphopenia. All 41 patients had pneumonia with abnormal findings on chest CT. Complications included acute respiratory distress syndrome (12 [29%]), RNAaemia (six [15%]), acute cardiac injury (five [12%]) and secondary infection (four [10%]). 13 (32%) patients were admitted to an ICU and six (15%) died. Compared with non-ICU patients, ICU patients had higher plasma levels of IL2, IL7, IL10, GSCF, IP10, MCP1, MIP1A, and TNF?.

Interpretation: The 2019-nCoV infection caused clusters of severe respiratory illness similar to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus and was associated with ICU admission and high mortality. Major gaps in our knowledge of the origin, epidemiology, duration of human transmission, and clinical spectrum of disease need fulfilment by future studies. Note the language saying there are “major gaps in our knowledgeabout the “duration of human transmission.”

Also note the more detailed list of symptoms offered by The Lancet:

Fever: 98%

Cough: 76%

Fatigue: 44%

Sputum production: 28%

Headache: 8%

Haemoptysis: 5%

Diarrhea: 3%

Also note it took eight days to develop dyspnoea, or difficulty breathing.

Also notice that 12% suffered “acute cardiac injury” which means permanent damage to the heart.

Sadly, through policies such as open borders, filthy liberal cities and biosludge “recycling” of human sewage onto food farms, humanity has created the “perfect storm” for a pandemic wipeout that cannot be stopped: Brighteon.com/0aaf4243-1dfe-47e9-9c56-32232a96cdfc

BREAKING: Coronavirus a stealth strain that can be carried by people who show NO fever or coughing symptoms… detection almost impossible under current government guidelines

Friday, January 24, 2020 by: Mike Adams

(Natural News) Coronavirus is spreading among people who show non-respiratory symptoms. This means detection of the carriers of the virus is going to be extremely difficult, given that nearly all health officials around the world are looking for respiratory symptoms such as coughing, sneezing and breathing difficulties. Some carriers of this rapidly spreading strain of coronavirus show no fever and no coughing, but instead are exhibiting symptoms of diarrhea, vomiting and chest pains.

“Thus far, official guidance on the symptoms of the Wuhan virus has been limited to fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as coughing, difficulty breathing or shortness of breath,” reports The Epoch Times: However, according to local media a report by doctors and experts from Renmin Hospital of Wuhan University on Friday noted the appearance of initial symptoms not related to the respiratory system. It said that many patients who contracted the virus did not have a fever. Therefore simply taking the temperatures of passengers at transport hubs is not enough to screen for the virus. Three confirmed cases in the USA, total secrecy about which hospitals have the patients  Human-to-human transmission of this novel coronavirus has already been confirmed, and according to multiple sources, there are now three confirmed cases in the United States. As we expected, the CDC and local health officials are refusing to release the names of the hospitals in which these coronavirus-infected patients are being treated and quarantined. The secrecy has begun. Meanwhile, the World Health Organization so far refuses to declare this a global pandemic, even as they were rapidly declaring faked, hoax pandemics in years past, such as the “Zika virus” hoax. What Americans need to know is that this coronavirus situation is far worse than what’s being reported by the controlled media, and that carriers are going to slip past even the best detection methods, because those methods are all based on looking for fevers and respiratory problems.

Stay tuned. More updates coming soon.

5 Million Potential Carriers Have Left Wuhan As Coronavirus Appears To Mutate Into ‘More Transmissable’ Form

Communist government fails to contain spread due to lack of symptoms in some cases

Zero Hedge - January 26, 2020

Over the weekend, there were numerous media reports published in hopes of easing fears that the coronavirus spread was uncontained, and informing the general public just how seriously China takes its quarantine of no less than 17 cities and roughly 60 million people. Take this report from AFP, according to which Police at a roadblock on the outskirts of Wuhan turned away cars trying to leave the virus-stricken epicenter on Saturday, as other anxious residents trapped inside spent the Lunar New Year stocking up on masks and medical supplies. “Authorities have prevented anyone from leaving Wuhan, the city of 11 million people at the heart of the viral outbreak which has so far infected nearly 1,300 people and killed 41 others” AFP writes adding that its reporters saw “a steady trickle of cars approaching the roadblocks around 20 kilometres (12 miles) east of the city centre on Saturday morning, only for police in fluorescent jackets wearing masks to tell them to turn around.” The barricade, at one of the tolls for highways exiting the city, was blocked with red and yellow plastic barriers and cones. “Nobody can leave,” a policeman told AFP. Yet, but… there is just one problem: the much needed quarantine and lockdown were far too late, because as Wuhan’s mayor Zhou Xianwang revealed on Sunday during a press conference, about 5 million residents had already left Wuhan before the lockdown because of the deadly coronavirus epidemic and the Spring Festival holiday. As the SCMP reports, many of Wuhan’s residents had already left the city for the holiday, while others rushed out after the lockdown was announced on Wednesday night. As a result, only 9 million people were remaining in the city after the lockdown, with roughly a third of it, including countless cases of coronavirus, having already spread across China. Meanwhile, in Chinese health officials ­warned the virus’ ­ability to spread was ­getting ­stronger, and in the worst possible news for China, Ma Xiaowei, the minister in charge of China’s National Health Commission (NHC), told a press conference that battling the outbreak had become especially complicated, after it was discovered that the new virus could be transmitted even during incubation period, which did not happen with Sars (severe acute respiratory syndrome). In other words, as many as tens if not hundreds of thousands of Coronavirus carriers quietly fled, and may have infected as many as 3-4 other people each, depending on the R0 of the virus.

From observations, the virus is capable of transmission even during incubation period,” Ma said, adding that the incubation period lasted from one to 14 days. “Some patients have normal temperatures and there are many milder cases. There are hidden carriers,” he said. As for the piece de resistance, Ma said also that the virus had adapted to humans and appeared to have become more transmissible: “There are signs showing the virus is becoming more transmissible. These walking ‘contagious agents’ [hidden carriers] make controlling the outbreak a lot more difficult.” Even China’s authorities sounds like they are giving up: Li Bin, deputy minister of the NHC said the authorities that the severe measures they had taken to control the spread of the virus – such as issuing travel bans and locking down cities – would at least delay the peak and “buy time to combat the next stage of the outbreak”, according to SCMP. Yes, China is already bracing for “the next stage of the outbreak.” To help tackle the epidemic, which has closed off 17 cities, Ma said that 2,360 military and civilian doctors and nurses had been sent to Wuhan, the city in which the outbreak was first detected at the end of last month. As the pressure has mounted on the city’s hospitals, the medical system has moved ever closer to collapse. Many people who developed feverish symptoms were turned away by hospitals earlier in the week because there were not enough beds, local residents said earlier. Medical practitioners are also running seriously short of protective kits and are being forced to recycle goggles and masks. Ma said 2,400 hospital beds had been added in Wuhan, and the government was planning to add 5,000 more over the next three days. Wang Jiangping, China’s vice-minister of industry and information technology, said China had the capacity to produce a maximum of 30,000 protective outfits per day, but that was less than a third of what was needed in Hubei. Meanwhile, the hunt for the real source of the pandemic continues. China imposed a nationwide ban on wildlife trade on Sunday, as the outbreak was originally suspecteded to have originated at a seafood market in Wuhan, which also sold wild animals. However, a research paper published by medical journal The Lancet on Saturday said the first confirmed case of the viral infection was a person who had not been to that market. Which begs the question we asked on Saturday: Did China Steal Coronavirus From Canada And Weaponize It?

Greyerz – Richard Russell, Jim Sinclair, China, Massive Inflation And $50,000 Gold

January 26, 2020

As the world edges closer to the next crisis, today the man who has become legendary for his predictions on QE and historic moves in currencies and metals spoke with King World News about Richard Russell, Jim Sinclair, China, massive inflation and $50,000 gold.

Richard Russell’s “Inflate Or Die”

January 26 (King World News) – Egon von Greyerz: “Inflate or die” was coined by the legendary and extremely wise Richard Russell of Dow Theory Letters. He understood the necessity of permanent central bank money printing already at the beginning of this century. Richard died in 2015, so sadly he didn’t live to see how right he was. After three decades of massive money printing and credit expansion, “inflate or die” has artificially kept the world economy going. But we are now in the 2020s moving in to the next stage which will be INFLATE AND DIE. Because, as stock and credit bubbles implode and money printing accelerates, the world will soon realize that not only is the freshly printed money worthless, but also most of the manufactured money from the last 20 years. But before we look at the consequences of inflate and die, last week 117 billionaires attended a Weather conference in Davos. They were joined by another 2,900 CEOs, political leaders, climate activists and other self-important people. It is quite surprising that so many “important” people get together to talk about the weather. With Swedish Greta (not Garbo) telling everyone “how dare you, the entire eco-system is collapsing, people are dying” etc., not just every Davos VIP but also all major central banks must now have a green agenda. For example, Lagarde, the ECB Chief, has made a strategic review of the bank’s purpose and stated that action on climate is a fundamental component of monetary policy. Climate change action will be a “mission critical” priority for the ECB. Would be better if she controlled the EU financial system rather than getting involved in controlling temperatures. Never before has such a crowd met up to discuss the climate, traveling there by 309 private jets plus hundreds of commercial flights and either helicopter or car from Zurich to Davos. I haven’t seen a Davos CO2 calculation yet but someone will most probably produce that. The organizers have made some politically correct and contrived calculation to justify this extravaganza to say that the WEF conference is carbon neutral. Hmmm!… Of course the globalists didn’t go there to only talk about the weather. But no one dared to attend Davos, except for Trump, without being totally behind the only Politically Correct position which states that humans are now in control of the earth’s temperature. So climate cycles are no longer valid as humans have raised the temperature recently and must now limit the increase to 1.5º C by 2050. The earth was formed 4.5 billion years ago and since then the climate cycles have taken care of themselves just as they will in the next few billion years. It is today compulsory to be committed to controlling the climate even though it can never be achieved. But this is today at the top of the global agenda for the West. Using young people to threaten the world with these Hobgoblins is working very effectively. The American writer Henry Louis Menken understood the purpose of these actions: The world will soon forget about the climate hobgoblins as much more dangerous trolls emerge. The Davos conference should have focused on these trolls rather than the climate hobgoblins. The trolls I am talking about is obviously the unprecedented level of economic, financial and political risk that the world is now facing. I produced the time-bomb above some time ago with 3 dozen reasons to worry with the main risk being global debt. For every day that passes new risks are emerging like the Coronavirus in Wuhan. Unofficial reports state that China is not telling the whole story and that there may be as many as 10,000 dead in Wuhan. Viruses have ravaged the world before and the Black Death or the Pest killed up to 200 million people in the 14th century. 50% of Europe’s population perished and around 35% in the rest of the world. We have most probably not seen the end of the Iran situation and there is a major risk that this could evolve to a global conflict involving the US and Russia. With the current US administration being extremely capricious, catastrophic events are near at hand. Very little was discussed in Davos in regard to global risk. Also, around the world, MSM (main stream media) have barely covered the warnings of a global debt crisis from the World Bank: “Low global interest rates provide only a precarious protection against financial crises,” said Ayhan Kose, a World Bank official. “The history of past waves of debt accumulation shows that these waves tend to have unhappy endings.” The World Bank is obviously right, there will be an “unhappy ending.” And as has been the case historically, the majority of the world will be totally unprepared. The graph below shows that investors haven’t got a clue and live in a world of fantasy and euphoria. The statements and actions by central banks since late August 2019 were the clearest sign of severe problems in the system that the world could receive. But the graph below shows that the “Don’t Worry Be Happy” attitude of investors is unperturbed. So more money printing due to a serious liquidity and solvency crisis in the financial system is only seen as good news for stock investors. As money printing to save the system accelerates so does the stock market. But profits have virtually stagnated since 2011 as the graph below shows. The gap between share price growth and profit has become much bigger than in 2000 and 2007 when we saw the big falls in stocks. The coming fall will be substantially bigger. Commodities, including precious metals, are still at historically low prices to stocks. The reversal will start in 2020 and be devastating for the world. Stock investors will in coming years lose up to 95% in real terms. Food prices will surge and so will gold and silver. High food prices and shortages will cause major problems. China knows what will happen since they are likely to trigger a financial event that leads to a dollar collapse and gold revaluation. As the chart below shows, China as a whole has bought 19,000 tonnes of gold since 2006. The real level of China’s gold reserves are not public but the estimate is that this could be as high as 20,000 tonnes. At some point China will declare their hand and the US will be forced to prove if they have even half of the 8,000 tonnes that they officially declare. The Russian Central Bank has also been preparing for the fall of the US and the dollar. Their gold holdings are up almost 6x since 2006. The individual who knows gold better than anyone living today is Mr Gold, Jim Sinclair. He has accurately predicted the gold market for 1/2 century. What Jim calls Emancipated Gold will reach $50,000 by 2025 according to his forecast. I believe this is similar to Freegold, which I wrote about in Dec 2018. Freegold is physical gold free from official money systems, owned free of all other claims and freely traded. Of course Jim’s forecast can be wrong. But only a foolish man would bet against him. For two decades I have been writing about gold and discussing the importance of holding physical gold outside the banking system. Gold is up 5 to 7 times since then in the major currencies and a lot more against other currencies. Still, the world financial system is still standing. But that is likely to change soon. Our technical indicators for stocks and gold indicate that a major turn in markets should be imminent. In my article two weeks ago I indicated that the Dow/Gold ratio spells trouble ahead. The correction up in the ratio since 2011 most probably finished in 2018. In the chart below I show that the quarterly MACD has just turned down. This is a very important long term trending indicator and spells trouble ahead for the world. But the Dow/Gold ratio will only move down with force once the stock market has turned down. Our proprietary cycle theory, called MAMCYCLE, forecast already in 2018 that the Dow would top in January 2020 and most probably in the second week. The top January 17th fits that forecast perfectly. So based on MAMCYCLE, the January monthly close should not be overtaken in a subsequent monthly close. Instead, a secular bear market in stocks is now likely to start. The turn down in the Dow will also be the start of a rapid fall in the Dow/Gold ratio and thus a very strong move up in gold. For information, the MAMCYCLE system forecasted the top in gold in September 2011 which I mentioned in a published article, well before the top, in the spring of 2011. So the 2020s will be a dramatic decade starting at any time. The financial system will not survive in its present form and nor will any currency. This is why we will see inflate and die as a depressionary hyperinflation takes hold of the world. Gold will reflect the coming cataclysm and probably reach Jim Sinclair’s $50,000 or much higher in hyperinflationary money. So I urge investors to hold physical gold because: Gold is money, gold is insurance and gold is financial survival…For those who would like to read more of Egon von Greyerz’s fantastic articles CLICK HERE.

World stocks skid as virus fears spook markets, hit tourism

By ELAINE KURTENBACH AP Business Writer Jan 27, 2020 Updated 21 hrs ago

BANGKOK (AP) — Stock markets and the price of oil tumbled Monday after China announced sharp increases in the number of people infected with a potentially deadly virus. In Paris, the CAC 40 lost 2.2% to 5,889 while Germany's DAX skidded 2.3% to 13,271. Britain's FTSE 100 gave up 2.3% to 7,414. Shares also looked set for declines on Wall Street, where the future contracts for the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average both sank 1.5%. China announced it was extending its week-long public holiday by an extra three days as a precaution against having the virus spread still further. By midnight Sunday, the National Health Commission said 80 people had died out of 2,744 cases that were confirmed. Various governments have announced plans to evacuate people from Wuhan, the central Chinese city at the center of the pandemic. China halted outbound tours and Wuhan and some other cities stopped public transport, obliging tens of millions of people to stay where they are at the time of the country's peak travel season. Many Asian markets, including China's, were closed for Lunar New Year holidays, while Australia was closed for Australia Day. Tokyo's Nikkei 225 index sank 2% to 23,343.51. India's Sensex lost 1% to 41,204.15, while the benchmark in Thailand dropped 3.1%. Indonesia's share benchmark was 1.8% lower. Apart from the direct impact on tourism and travel, “any economic shock to China's colossal industrial and consumption engines will spread rapidly to other countries through the increased trade and financial linkages associated with globalization," Stephen Innes of AxiCorp said in a commentary. The virus that has spread to a dozen countries in addition to Hong Kong and Macau can cause pneumonia and other severe respiratory symptoms. The World Health Organization has not yet declared the situation a global emergency, which would bring more money and resources to fight it, but could trigger still more economically damaging restrictions on trade and travel. On Friday, the S&P 500 had its worst day since early October, dropping 0.9% as health care stocks saw steep losses. The sell-off followed news that a Chicago woman had become the second U.S. patient diagnosed with the new virus from China. Investors have been shifting money into safe-play, high-dividend stocks and government bonds. The surge in bond-buying has sent yields lower. Investors also are digging through the latest batch of company earnings reports, including strong results from chipmaker Intel and American Express. This week is shaping up to be the busiest week for earnings, with roughly 40% of the companies in the S&P 500 due to issue their results for the last three months of 2019. Benchmark U.S. crude gave up $1.71 to $52.48 per barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. It lost $1.40 to $54.19 per barrel on Friday. Brent crude, the international standard, declined $2.63 to $58.06 per barrel. It shed $1.39 to $59.89 per barrel on Friday. In currency trading, the dollar weakened to 108.94 Japanese yen from 109.28 yen. The euro was steady at $1.1020.

Death toll stands at 22 in Turkish earthquake; 1,000 hurt

The Associated Press ANDREW WILKS Jan 25th 2020 9:43AM

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — The death toll from a strong earthquake that rocked eastern Turkey climbed to 22 Saturday, with more than 1,000 people injured, officials said. Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu, speaking at a televised news conference near the epicenter of the quake, said 39 people had been rescued from the rubble of collapsed buildings, including a woman recovered 14 hours after the main tremor. Rescue workers were continuing to search for people buried under the rubble of collapsed buildings in Elazig province and neighboring Malatya, Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said earlier. Emergency workers and security forces distributed tents, beds and blankets as overnight temperatures dropped below freezing in the affected areas. Mosques, schools, sports halls and student dormitories were opened for hundreds who left their homes after the quake. “The earthquake was very severe, we desperately ran out (of our home),” Emre Gocer told the state-run Anadolu news agency as he sheltered with his family at a sports hall in the town of Sivrice in Elazig. “We don’t have a safe place to stay right now.” The quake hit Friday at 8:55 p.m. local time (1755 GMT) at a depth of 6.7 kilometers (around 4 miles) near Sivrice, the Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency, or AFAD, said. Various earthquake monitoring centers gave magnitudes ranging from 6.5 to 6.8. AFAD said it was followed by 228 aftershocks, the strongest with magnitudes 5.4 and 5.1. At least five buildings in Sivrice and 25 in Malatya province were destroyed, said Environment and Urbanization Minister Murat Kurum. Hundreds of other structures were damaged and made unsafe. Soylu said 18 people were killed in Elazig and four in Malatya. Some 1,030 people were hurt. Speaking at the same news conference, Koca said 34 people remain in intensive care. Television footage showed emergency workers removing two people from the wreckage of a collapsed building in the town of Gezin. Another person was saved in the city of Elazig, the provincial capital, and two more from a house in Doganyol, Malatya. A prison in Adiyaman, 110 kilometers (70 miles) southwest of the epicenter, was evacuated after being damaged in the quake. AFAD said 28 rescue teams had been working around the clock. More than 2,600 personnel from 39 of Turkey’s 81 provinces were sent to the disaster site. “Our biggest hope is that the death toll does not rise,” Parliament Speaker Mustafa Sentop said. Communication companies announced free telephone and internet services for residents in the quake-hit region, while Turkish Airlines announced extra flights. Soylu said emergency work was proceeding under the threat of aftershocks. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Twitter overnight that all measures were being taken to "ensure that the earthquake that occurred in Elazig and was felt in many provinces is overcome with the least amount of loss." Neighboring Greece, which is at odds with Turkey over maritime boundaries and gas exploitation rights, offered to send rescue crews should they be needed. Elazig is some 565 kilometers (350 miles) east of the Turkish capital, Ankara. Turkey sits on top of two major fault lines and earthquakes are frequent. Two strong earthquakes struck northwest Turkey in 1999, killing around 18,000 people. A magnitude 6 earthquake killed 51 people in Elazig in 2010. More from Aol.com:

Under Trump deal, Israel said to retain security control over Palestinian state

Offering ostensible new details of imminent plan, TV report says US expects Palestinians to reject it, would encourage them to rethink; Trump says reports on content ‘speculative’

By TOI staff 24 January 2020, 10:02 pm

Under the terms of the soon-to-be released Trump administration peace plan, Israel would retain overall security control of the entire West Bank even if a Palestinian state is established in parts of it, Israeli TV reports said Friday night. Adding fresh ostensible details regarding the content of the plan, Channel 13 said it ultimately provides for a demilitarized Palestinian state in some 80 percent of the West Bank, under overall Israeli control. That state would not be empowered to maintain an army and sign military treaties, and Israel would control its borders, further reports on Friday said. The Channel 13 report said the US expects the Palestinians to reject the plan, but would encourage them to think again, and would say that the 80% of West Bank territory intended for their state would be kept for them for several years. The various Israeli reports on the plan to date have made no mention of the intended fate of the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. US President Donald Trump, who said Thursday that he has invited Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and rival Benny Gantz to the White House next Tuesday to discuss the plan, and that he would likely release it before that meeting, has dismissed reports on its ostensible content as “purely speculative.” Israeli reports have described the deal as the “most pro-Israel plan ever presented” by a US administration. In the Clinton era, prime minister Ehud Barak offered to relinquish over 90% of the West Bank to the Palestinians; in 2008, prime minister Ehud Olmert offered what amounted to 100% of the West Bank with one-for-one land swaps, a capital in East Jerusalem, and the Old City under international control. Based on what it said were briefings given by US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman to various Israeli politicians in recent days, the Channel 13 report also said the Jordan Valley will be defined in the plan as Israel’s eastern security border. If Israel wants to annex that area, however, it would have to give the Palestinians territory in return in the Negev close to the Gaza Strip. Elaborating on a Channel 12 report Thursday, the Channel 13 item said Israel would annex all 100-plus settlements, but that minor settlements among them would not expand further; building there would be frozen. Dozens of illegal outposts would be evacuated. Again echoing Thursday’s report, Channel 13 said Israel would be sovereign in Jerusalem — though it added that several Arab neighborhoods formally inside Jerusalem that are located on the West Bank side of the security barrier would go to the Palestinians. Israel would be sovereign at the Temple Mount and other Old City holy sites, but the Palestinians would have a role in their administration, it said. Quoting sources in Gantz’s Blue and White party, Channel 13 reported that Israel would not be allowed to start annexing West Bank settlements and other areas unless it accepted the full plan. Gantz, who initially was inclined to accept Trump’s invitation to the White House, is now leaning against going, Friday night TV reports said, regarding the timing of the plan’s release as a “trap,” with the trip likely to be utilized to boost Netanyahu and undermine him ahead of the March 2 elections. Gantz is to make a statement on the issue on Saturday evening. The Palestinian Authority has preemptively rejected the plan, and is reportedly threatening to cancel its security coordination with Israel in the West Bank if it moves ahead. The PA has had no substantive dealings with the US administration since Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in December 2017.

The US is seeking to encourage allied Arab foreign ministers to attend Tuesday’s White House meeting, thus far to no avail, Channel 12 said. In its report on the plan Thursday, Channel 12 said it provides for full Israeli sovereignty throughout Jerusalem, for Israel to annex all 100-plus West Bank settlements, and for no significant “return” to Israel of Palestinian refugees. It provides for the establishment of a Palestinian state, but on condition that the Hamas terror group gives up its weapons and the Palestinians recognize Israel as a Jewish state with Jerusalem as its capital. It also said if Israel accepts the plan and the Palestinians reject it, Israel would have US support to begin annexing settlements unilaterally — a detail contradicted in Friday’s Channel 13 report. https://www.timesofisrael.com/under-trump-deal-israel-said-to-retain-security-control-over-palestinian-state/

Some Practical Questions about the Coronavirus Epidemic

Restrictions that allow a significant number of people to move about, either with official approval or unsanctioned "black market" activity, cannot stop the spread of contagious diseases.

Like everyone else, I've been reading the mainstream media reports on the Coronavirus epidemic. I haven't found any information about the practicalities that immediately occur to me, such as:

1. When public transportation is halted and commerce grinds to a halt as people avoid public places and gatherings, thousands of employees no longer go to work. Who pays their wages while the city is locked down? The employers? Then who compensates the employers, since their income has also gone to zero? Does China have a universal unemployment insurance system that can quickly issue payments to all people who are no longer going to work and getting a paycheck from an employer?

What about the thousands of migrant workers who don't have regular employers? Who pays them? If they're technically not officially sanctioned residents of the city, they don't exist in government records.

2. If people idled by the lockdown are supposed to live off savings, what about all the marginal workers with few resources? What are they going to live on once their meager savings are gone?

3. Given the choice of obeying the lockdown rules and starving or slipping out of the city to find paid work somewhere else, how many migrant workers will choose to slip away?

4. Unlike the developed West, many people in China still have ancestral villages to return to, rural towns where their grandparents or or other close relatives live. If work has dried up and you're fearful of catching a potentially lethal virus, wouldn't it make sense to slip out of the city and make your way back to the village where you can hunker down until the epidemic blows over?

Since people who caught the virus may not know they're a carrier, how will this migration not spread the disease to rural areas with few medical resources?

5. The typical city has about a week's supply of food, fuel, etc. at best. If the lockdown runs longer than a few days, scarcities of essentials will ignite hoarding, and remaining supplies will be snapped up.

Since the city's residents need food, fuel, etc., it must be brought in regardless of the lockdown. This brings outside workers into the city and provides residents desperate to flee avenues to escape the lockdown. Every individual involved in this system is potentially exposed to the virus or is a potential asymptomatic carrier of the virus leaving the city.

These realities leave officials with an impossible choice: either truly isolate the city, which isn't possible for more than a few days, or allow the stupendous flow of goods required to sustain millions of city residents, thereby creating uncontrollable avenues for the virus to spread beyond the city as transport workers and those fleeing the lockdown travel to other cities.

6. The only way to end a contagion is to identify every carrier of the disease and immediately isolate them in full hazmat mode, and then track down every individual they had contact with during the incubation/asymptomatic period of the disease--up to two weeks--and isolate all these individuals until they either develop the disease or pass through the crisis unharmed.

This was the basic procedure used to end the SARS epidemic in 2003. As this article from the The New England Journal of Medicine explains (Another Decade, Another Coronavirus, (via correspondent Cheryl A.), the Wuhan Coronavirus shares characteristics with SARS and cannot be dismissed as just another run-of-the-mill flu virus.

During this process of isolating / quarantining everyone with the disease and everyone they had close contact with, all healthcare workers caring for these people must also remain isolated from the general populace lest they become infected and spread the disease outside the quarantine.

Treating people in crowded hospitals where hundreds of people are coming and going and moving freely into the rest of the city won't stop a contagion from spreading.

If the only way to end a contagion is to identify every carrier of the disease and immediately isolate them, and then track down every individual they had contact with during the incubation/asymptomatic period of the disease--is this even possible in China now?

Please study the map below before claiming it's still possible. 7. China is making a big show about sending 1,000 doctors to Wuhan, but precisely what medical treatments are available for this virus, how effective are these treatments, and do they require a physician to be administered? If the answers are: there are no effective targeted medical treatments for this virus, and doctors are not required to administer what is available, then why expose a scarce resource--physicians--to the disease since they really can't do much to halt it or heal the patients?

Isn't sending 1,000 doctors to Wuhan more a PR move than anything else? And if it's basically a PR stunt to appear to be "doing something," doesn't that call the entire official response into question?

If there is no targeted treatment available, then the recovery of the patient is a function of their immune system. Building tent hospitals that are porous--healthcare workers returning home after their shift, relatives visiting the stricken, workers moving supplies in and out of other facilities, etc.--will do little to isolate carriers and potential carriers. And since complete isolation is the only way to stem the contagion, these porous tent hospitals won't do much to limit the contagion.

8. Are the travel bans on tours and other travel restriction measures 100%, in other words, not a single individual is being allowed in or out? If the travel restrictions are haphazard, then what's stopping asymptomatic carriers of the virus from traveling freely around the world?

There are many other practical questions about the epidemic and China's response that aren't being addressed in the conventional media. While we don't know precisely how contagious and lethal the virus is at this point--and it could mutate into a more contagious and lethal variation within a carrier at any moment--we do know complete isolation of every carrier and everyone they had close contact with is the only way to end the contagion.

We also know cities can't truly be isolated for longer than a few days, and we know people can't live without food, water, fuel, etc. and money to buy these essentials. We also know that restrictions that allow a significant number of people to move about, either with official approval or unsanctioned "black market" activity, cannot stop the spread of contagious diseases.

Top 10 Mass Graves

Ryan Thomas

Revering the dead is a purely human ideal; unfortunately, it is only an ideal. There have been many occasions – scattered like ashes throughout history – where the dead have been treated less than favorably, sometimes downright improperly. Bodies were, in these haphazard and callous instances, not placed in a finished mahogany beneath a smooth slab of granite, but rather piled up like stacks of rotten meat. Each of these dead, lying like sardines in unlabeled cans, seem to die into a form of irrevocable anonymity. Perhaps though, remembering these individuals as part of a larger number is a way of remembering these individuals as one part of history we hope never repeats itself. In doing so, here are the top ten mass graves: Just 3 years ago, the most brutal mass-murder in journalistic history took place, in which at least 34 journalists were deliberately killed as casualties of political terrorism. There was tension in Maguindanao (a province of an island in the Philippines) as an election was underway; two rivaling members of the same party running for the same office. Vice Mayor Esmael “Toto” Mangudadatu, who was filing his certificate of candidacy, received threats that his rivals (supporters of the Andal Ampatuan, Sr. family) would cut him up into little piece afterwards. Thinking a battalion of journalists would prevent such things from occurring, he invited 37 of them to accompany him. Unfortunately, they were no deterrent, as his caravan was stopped by 100 armed men who went on to slaughter all or most of Mangudadatu’s group in the most heinous of ways (e.g. women, some who were journalists, were raped and shot in the genitals). They were all set to be buried in a mass grave dug two days earlier (along with their vehicles), until they were caught in the act by a helicopter. A shovel found near the site bore the name Ampatuan. A total of 58 people were killed, a count which included – aside from an exceptionally high journalist count – Mangudadatu’s wife (who sent him a text upon recognizing the attackers as Ampatuan’s men), his two sisters, as well as some lawyers and aides. This sports stadium was just one casualty of a Sri Lankan civil war that was responsible for over 65,000 deaths. It was damaged structurally and abandoned during conflict, and its renovation – this was back in 1999 – should have been a sign of comfort. That was until some workers digging into the foundation collided with boney remains. What was discovered was the compacted, skeletal remains of 25 bodies, two of which were children. While there is some mystery about the circumstances surrounding this mass grave – and apparently proper forensic methods weren’t used in the uncovering and could have destroyed necessary evidence – 12,000 civilians are said to have gone missing since the start of the conflict, and a number of residents are still looking for their missing family members, hoping this grave might put their minds at (relative) ease. This island situated on upstate New York’s Lake Champlain was used as a hospital during the 1814 Battle of Plattsburgh for American and British troops. Being the nearest island to the ground where actual conflict took place, the dead – some of whom washed up on shore – were packed in rows in a mass grave-site south of the hospital. All but respected officers – who received proper graves – were lumped together in nameless piles. Only in 1908 were these men, who indeed had names and distinct identities, commemorated by way of a Congress-commissioned granite obelisk. Although, still no one’s gone so far as to memorialize these men individually. As if we need more proof of how sinister this world and the people in it can be, the Vukovar massacre stands as one more testament to the existence of human evil. Taking place in 1991 just outside the city of Vukovar, which was winding down from battle, the 264 mostly Croatian victims were largely civilians and hospital patients shipped into the prison camp of the Serb militants. Most were executed by shooting, while some were beaten to death-, the bodies were crudely dumped in an unearthed trench and bull-dozed back over. Seven men deemed responsible have since been charged with committing these horrific war crimes by the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (Yugoslav military leaders Veselin Šljivančanin and Mile Mrkšić have been convicted, while a few others died before trial and/or committed suicide). The island was used as a Prisoner of War camp during the Civil War in 1865, and Confederates who died there were buried on the island, along with Union soldiers whose remains were eventually relocated. But the real morbid stuff is that which follows the war; after New York City bought the island in 1869, they decided to use the grounds to unload their dead. A particularly chilling New York Times article titled “Where the Unknown Dead Rest” from 1874 goes on to delineate the procedure by which the deceased are handled, and just how stolidly: unidentified bodies and remains of adults and children are dumped in “common trenches,” but not without a photograph taken at a time when “the process of decomposition is not too far advanced.” Photographs and plots were given corresponding numbers so potential relatives could, upon identifying a body, provide a proper burial. But often times these faceless corpses were presumed friendless (some having died by suicide), while other relatives were simply too poor to afford a traditional (and much more respectful) burial. When the Bubonic plague (a.k.a. “Black Death”) ravaged Europe in the 14th century, traditional burial methods had collapsed under the weight of one-to-two-thirds of Europe in corpses. Traditional procession were reserved for the wealthy, or else just deemed too ridiculous with a pile-up that overwhelming. This kind of practice became standard procedure in times of plague, such as when plague struck again in England in the form of the Great Plague of 1665 (this time killing 100,000 people, which is about 20% of London’s population). Iraq is basically one big mass burial ground; since the 1980s it has provided pockets of earth in which victims of genocide (mostly against Kurds, as in 1983), massacre, and execution have been laid to waste. There are 250 reported mass grave-sites (40 of which have been confirmed), and a million missing Iraqis – a hundred-thousand of which are presumed to be in one of these collective plots. Some of the most notorious Iraqi auto-atrocities include the rounding up of 8,000 Kurds in 1983 and their execution in the middle of some remote desert; chemical attacks between 1986 and 1988 where the Iraqi Air Force dropped poison on Kurdish villages, killing 5,000 outright (with many more suffering long-term corrosive health defects); and 1988’s Anfal Campaign which resulted in 182,000 missing Kurdi families, with the remains of many wives and children turning up in mass graves. Mass graves in Chechnya have started turning up by the bushel since the start of the Chechen War in 1994. As of 2008, 57 mass burial sites have been located, which may contain thousands of bodies, 5,000 of which are civilians who disappeared amidst the Second Chechen War in 1999. The largest mass grave of them all is in Grozny and contains 800 bodies (from the First Chechen War). While some countries might go so far as to try to help identify the various bodies for grieving relatives, Russia has a general “Do Not Exhume” policy. Amidst a totalitarian Soviet Union, and under the crushing hammer of Joseph Stalin, great numbers of Soviet citizens as well as foreigners were executed outright by the famous “secret police” – most popularly via a bullet to the base of the skull – in numbers that reached 700,000 (all dumped in mass graves) by the time of the Great Purge of 1937-1938, whereby all of Stalin’s political opponents were effectively silenced. This was the ultimate means to put the fear of Stalin into the Soviet people’s hearts – fear which can quite easily be fashioned into a crude, desperate kind of loyalty by those who wish to not meet the fates of their neighbors. The graves which are scattered all about the former U.S.S.R. are turning up all the time, with horrifying body counts – in Bykivnia, 120,000-250,000; Kurapaty, 30,000 to 200,000; Butovo, more than 20,000; and Sandarmokh, more than 9,000 dead. Pol Pot is one more name to add to a list which includes the likes of Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin, as genocide by the staggering numbers was what he was best known for. He has 20,000 mass grave-sites in his name, containing a minimum of 1.38 million bodies. Amongst them are: anyone associated with (or even suspected of) the former government, intellectuals/professionals, and a variety of ethnic/religious groups his regime singled out. His Kmer Rouge regime only lasted from the end of the Cambodian Civil War (1975) to 1979, but in that time he accomplished a great deal of evil.

Coronavirus quarantine centre is FIRE-BOMBED: Hong Kong rioters torch housing complex as city BANS anyone who has set foot in Hubei in last 14 days from entering

Protesters hurled molotov cocktails at a public housing complex Sunday night

It had been earmarked to become a temporary quarantine zone for coronavirus

Hong Kong - which so far has six confirmed cases - is braced for infections

But dozens of local residents are opposed to having the facility in their area

By Ross Ibbetson For Mailonline and Afp Published: 10:21 EST, 26 January 2020 | Updated: 12:02 EST, 26 January 2020

Hong Kong protesters have fuelled coronavirus chaos by lobbing petrol bombs at an empty housing complex in fury over it being designated as a quarantine zone. Molotov cocktails were launched on Sunday night at the empty block which had been earmarked to become a temporary facility after the city confirmed six cases. Among other ramped-up measures to reduce the risk of further infections, officials proposed using the building to house suspected victims, as well as front-line medical staff worried about infecting their families. But dozens of angry local residents and protesters opposed to the measures set up roadblocks outside the complex before riot police moved in with tear gas. An AFP photographer on the scene saw fierce flames coming from the entrance of two apartment blocks before firefighters got the blaze under control. Riot police were controlling the area and protesters had left, although some local residents were arguing with officers who used pepper spray. The Centre for Health Protection said the plan to turn the housing estate into a quarantine zone would be suspended. The agency has already turned a holiday park in an isolated rural area into a working quarantine facility. Two other holiday parks located away from major housing estates are also ready to be used as similar facilities. But officials say they have struggled to find hotels and spare rooms for doctors and nurses working on the isolation wards where patients are being treated. The virus outbreak comes at a time when Hong Kong is already boiling with widespread anti-government sentiment after seven months of often violent pro-democracy protests. The city's pro-Beijing leader Carrie Lam boasts record-low approval ratings while the police force is loathed in many neighbourhoods. The frequency and ferocity of protests have died down in the last six weeks, but sporadic clashes still take place. Police fired tear gas on Saturday night - the first day of the Lunar New Year - at small groups of masked protesters in Mongkok. Nearly 300 people were killed by SARS in 2003, a tragedy that left a profound psychological impact on one of the most densely populated places on earth. The city's ability to combat the crisis was hampered by moves in mainland China to cover up and play down the outbreak, leaving a lasting legacy of distrust among many Hong Kongers. Animosity towards China has intensified in recent years as Beijing tightens political control over the semi-autonomous territory and as mainlanders compete with locals for jobs, property and goods in the pricey city.

UPDATES! 4th Coronavirus Case Confirmed In The US - Like Scenes From The Walking Dead, Chinese Doctor's Twitter Shows Chaos Unfolding - Photographs & Videos Show Food Gone, Checkpoints Everywhere & People Dropping Dead In The Streets

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die January 26, 2020

ANP received a reader tip on Saturday from 'Logical American' who has been following the FluTrackers website as well as the twitter pages of several people from China, including a doctor who has posted numerous photographs, videos and updates of what's happening now, and with this new Reuters story confirming a rapidly strengthening virus, things appear to be much worse in China than we're being told. While the Chinese government immediately hit back at a video by a nurse believed to be in Wuhan who claimed that 90,000 people in the city were already infected as the Daily Mail reports in this new story, posts being made over at FluTrackers as well as by Harry Chen PhD on twitter seem to confirm the nurse's reports of things being much worse there than government and media are letting the people know. That video is the 1st video at the bottom of this story. So we'll be taking a look within this story at numerous photographs, videos and updates that we've found on twitter, FluTrackers and elsewhere online which we hope helps to paint a much better picture of what's happening now in China, and with the world interconnected like never before, thus across the entire planet. UPDATE! 4th coronavirus case confirmed in the US in California. With confirmed reports now out that there is a 14-day incubation period for coronavirus with the Wall Street Journal reporting that means it could take roughly two weeks for someone infected with the virus to develop symptoms although it's possible they could be contagious before showing symptoms, Harvard epidemiologist Dr. Eric Feigl-Ding warns that not only is he "deeply worried about this new coronavirus outbreak because the virus seemed to have an upward infection trajectory curve much steeper than SARS" but "this is thermonuclear, pandemic-level bad". So while some claim that this is all a massive hoax, as ANP reader 'Icy Peacemaker' mentioned in a comment on this ANP story on Saturday: "It should also be noted that this is a manufactured virus whose patent is owned by Bill Melinda Gates Foundation. There are those asserting this is a hoax. Would you be willing to bet your life on that? That said, and the globalist train of thought, I'm considering that the banksters who've been wanting a war to mask their perfidy, this may be the perfect opportunity to crash the system. In any event, it would behoove us all to keep an ear to the ground and be vigilant. Prepare to hunker down for at least a month or more." So the rest of this story will be taking a look at pictures, videos and updates posted online by people in China which paint a much different picture of what is unfolding there now than we are being told by authorities.

(ANP EMERGENCY FUNDRAISER! Following Susan Duclos' recent heart attacks and hospitalization, All News Pipeline will need some financial help in the days and weeks ahead. So if you like stories like this, please consider donating to ANP to help keep us in this 'Info-war' for America at a time of systematic censorship and widespread corruption.) With checkpoints like the one seen above being rolled out across parts of China while in other locations such as the two seen in the photograph at the top of this story showing the Chinese people having to step up to prevent coronavirus carriers from coming into their communities, as we had reported within our January 25th story, we should all be prepared to self-quarantine ourselves here in America should this outbreak explode here. With another case of coronavirus confirmed in Orange County, California and US hospitals absolutely NOT ready for coronavirus as the Wall Street Journal reports in this new story, we'll be on our own should this beast arrive here in its totality. And not surprisingly as we see from the next image from Dr. Chen below, food is being bought up like there will be no more food tomorrow, giving us all another reason to purchase long term survival food that will get us through a 3 to 4 week 'self-quarantine' just in case SHTF arrives in America as well. Those who are taking medications should also stock up on as much as possible as we see in the next image below, what Dr. Chen calls a 'swarm of crows' has lined up to buy medicine as the virus spreads there. Though as he also points out, millions are completely unprepared in China and soon to be 'sitting ducks'as the entire city is quarantined. Something out of an apocalyptic disaster movie? And the next 2 photographs from China help to confirm the 'apocalyptic disaster movie' theme with Dr. Chen claiming the photographs look just like scenes from The Walking Dead as transportation between cities is banned, with many places having no power and no food. Just imagine that same scenario unfolding here in America! Would you be prepared? A bizarre phenomenon that Dr. Chen has pointed out in numerous posts on twitter show people simply falling dead in the streets of China as seen in the photo below and the 2nd video at the bottom of this story. So we shouldn't be the least bit surprised that armed guards are being stationed at hospitals there. While ANP is unable to confirm the numbers being thrown around in the FluTrackers post seen below, there have been reports of a death rate from this outbreak of a staggering 40%, a number also reported in this SQAlert and a number which would be not only 20 times higher than the 2% death rate of the Spanish flu but almost guarantee that the virus was weaponized. With a death rate of even 38%, as the poster mentions, he doesn't expect the CDC to reveal the true numbers due to that possibility causing mass panic though as he also points out, "the fact the CDC is not revealing this number scares the bejesus out of me". So with it looking more likely that coronavirus will be something that could spread in America and it possibly being a weaponized virus, we urge all of our readers to prepare to self-quarantine at some point in time in the days ahead, especially with a 14-day incubation period and potentially alarming consequences for humanity as Mike Adams reports in this new story over at Natural News. Many more photographs and videos of what's unfolding now in China from Dr. Harry Chen's twitter account here.

And in another update, trucks apparently full of villagers escaped roadblocks in Wuhan, China.

China says coronavirus can spread before symptoms show -- calling into question US containment strategy

By Elizabeth Cohen, CNN Senior Medical Correspondent Updated 5:23 PM ET, Sun January 26, 2020

(CNN) China's health minister Ma Xiaowei made a startling statement Sunday about the Wuhan coronavirus: He said people can spread it before they become symptomatic.

"This is a game changer," said Dr. William Schaffner, a longtime adviser to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It's much harder to contain a virus -- to track down a patient's contacts and quarantine them immediately -- if the patient was spreading the disease for days or weeks before they even realized they had it. "It means the infection is much more contagious than we originally thought," said Schaffner, an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. "This is worse than we anticipated." Ma didn't explain why he thinks the virus can be spread before someone has symptoms. If the Chinese health minister is right -- and there are those who doubt him -- that means the five confirmed cases in the United States might have been infectious while traveling from Wuhan to Arizona, California, Illinois and Washington state, even if they had no symptoms at the time. On Sunday, Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said the risk to the American public for contracting this virus continues to be low. "We at CDC don't have clear evidence that patients are infectious before symptom onset, but we are actively investigating that possibility," Messonnier said. "We need to be preparing as if this is a pandemic, but I continue to hope that it is not," she added. The Wuhan coronavirus has killed more than 50 people in China and infected thousands there, and spread as far as the US, France and Canada. 'We're going to have to reevaluate our strategy' US health officials believe the Wuhan virus has an incubation period of about two weeks, CDC officials said Friday during a media briefing. "Based on what we know now about this virus, our concern for transmission before symptoms develop is low, so that is reassuring," Dr. Jennifer Layden, an epidemiologist with the Illinois Department of Health, said at the Friday briefing. The update on Sunday from the Chinese health minister should encourage health officials to change that thinking, some infectious disease experts told CNN. "Assuming that Ma is correct, we're going to have to re-evaluate our strategy, that's for sure," Schaffner said. Dr. Paul Offit, another longtime CDC adviser, said given Ma's news, he thinks health officials should alert people on the flights that the three US patients took from Wuhan that they might have traveled with someone who was infectious. "I think the conservative thing to do would be to cast a wider net," he said. NIH doctor wants US to inspect Chinese data The United States' top infectious disease doctor wants a team of CDC disease detectives to go to China and check on these crucial questions about how the Wuhan coronavirus is spreading. But there's something stopping them: China first has to invite the CDC. "Up to now, to my knowledge, we have not been invited," Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the US National Institutes of Health, said Sunday. NIH and CDC are separate divisions of the US Department of Health and Human Services. The implications of Ma's statement that the coronavirus is transmissible before symptoms are so important "that in my mind it's absolutely critical that we ourselves see the data, because what goes on over there has implications for what happens here," Fauci said. He added that to his knowledge, the Chinese did not tell US health authorities that the virus could spread before someone is symptomatic, a crucial aspect of any disease investigation. He said he learned about it after reading a CNN reporter's email.  Fauci said that CDC disease detectives would need to see precisely how Chinese health authorities have gathered their data and how they came to their conclusion. "To my knowledge, we have not seen the precise minute, granular data and how they collected it," he said. "We need to get to the real bottom line of how they collected their data and see if it's valid." "The Chinese have good people. I don't want to impugn their capabilities," Fauci added. "But when it's something as important as this, our people who are trained epidemiologists need to go over their data and the best way to do that is go there and see how they're collecting it." CDC's Messonnier said Sunday the CDC has staff in China, but the team is not directly involved in the Wuhan coronavirus response. The agency hopes to have "additional engagement" on the outbreak in China in the coming days, she said. In a tweet on Sunday, World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said, "I am on my way to Beijing, [China] to meet with the Government & health experts supporting the #coronavirus response. My @WHO colleagues & I would like to understand the latest developments & strengthen our partnership with [China] in providing further protection against the outbreak." Are Chinese officials right? In a fast-spreading, evolving outbreak like this one, information often changes. Some experts are skeptical because of the lack of data from China. "I seriously doubt that the Chinese public officials have any data supporting this statement," said Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota. "I know of no evidence in 17 years of working with coronaviruses -- SARS and MERS -- where anyone has been found to be infectious during their incubation period." Severe acute respiratory syndrome and Middle East respiratory syndrome are both caused by coronaviruses. While each has killed hundreds of people worldwide, together they amounted to only a handful of cases and no deaths in the United States.

Offit, on the other hand, said it wouldn't surprise him if the Chinese health minister is right and the Wuhan coronavirus can be spread while people are asymptomatic. Measles, mumps, rubella and chicken pox all spread that way, he said. Despite that, he said he's optimistic that the US can control the outbreak before it gets out of hand, as it has in China. That's because the spread of the outbreak doesn't just rely on the time period of contagiousness. It also relies on how easily the virus spreads. Some viruses, such as measles, spread easily even to people on the other side of a room. Other viruses spread only with much closer contact. "My gut says we're going to be able to contain this real quick -- we're going to be able to put a moat around this fire," said Offit, a pediatric infectious disease expert at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. "I think this is going to be much more like SARS or MERS than the movie 'Contagion.' " "But then," the Philadelphia-based doctor said, "I'm an Eagles fan, so I tend to be optimistic about things." CNN's Steven Jiang contributed to this report.

Rockets 'hit US embassy' in Iraq capital amid anti-gov't protests

Washington calls on Iraq to protect US embassy after third against the diplomatic facility this month.

10 hours ago

The US embassy in Baghdad's heavily fortified Green Zone came under attack from rocket fire on Sunday evening. Five rockets crashed into a riverbank near the embassy in the Iraqi capital without causing any injuries, the US Joint Operations Command said in a statement, but AFP news agency citing a security source said three of the rockets "directly hit the US embassy". One slammed into a cafeteria at dinner time, it added. If confirmed, the attack would mark the first time the complex had been directly hit in the third attack against the embassy this month. Caretaker Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi swiftly condemned the attack in a statement, calling it an "aggression" that could "drag Iraq into becoming a war zone". In a statement, the United States urged Iraq to protect the embassy.  "We call on the Government of Iraq to fulfill its obligations to protect our diplomatic facilities," a State Department spokesperson said in a statement. Wathiq al-Hashemi, an Iraqi political analyst, told Al Jazeera that the attack was an "embarrassment" for the government of Abdul Mahdi, who resigned in November under pressure from Iraq's months-long protest movement demanding an overhaul of the country's political system. "Abdul Mahdi's position is not one to envy. He had told armed groups to stop these kinds of attacks on the US embassy, but to no avail," al-Hashemi said. "What is interesting to note is that the pro-Iranian militias have denied any role in this attack, saying they did not target the embassy and that it could have been other armed groups. I expect there will be a US response but it remains to be seen whether it will be a military one or not." Protesters killed Meanwhile, one protester was killed in Baghdad and another in the southern city of Nasiriyah as security forces tried to clear sit-in protest camps, medical sources told Al Jazeera. Scores of protesters were wounded. More than 500 demonstrators have been killed since the protest movement began in October, with rights groups accusing security forces of using excessive force. The protesters are demanding the removal of what they consider a corrupt ruling elite and an end to foreign interference in Iraqi politics. Unrest resumed last week, after a lull of several weeks, following the January 3 US drone strike that killed Iranian General Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, an Iraqi commander of the pro-Iranian Hashd al-Shaabi militia group. The killing, to which Iran responded with ballistic missile attacks on two Iraqi bases hosting US troops, has revived tensions in Iraqi politics and delayed the formation of a new government. Amid growing calls for an end to interference, the Iraqi Parliament on January 5 backed a nonbinding resolution for all foreign troops - including 5,200 US soldiers - to leave the country. Shia leader cancels march Meanwhile, leading Shia leader Moqtada al-Sadr had called for renewed demonstrations against the US in Baghdad and other cities on Sunday but cancelled them with his office giving "avoiding internal strife" as the reason. On Friday, tens of thousands protested against the US military presence in Iraq in a march. Sadr, who has millions of supporters in Baghdad and the south, said on Saturday he would end his involvement in the anti-government unrest. Al-Sadr's supporters have bolstered the protesters and at times helped shield them from attacks by security forces and unidentified gunmen, but began withdrawing from sit-in camps on Saturday following his announcement. The Iraqi High Commission on Human Rights called on all sides to exercise self-restraint and keep the demonstrations peaceful. Additional reporting by Linah Alsaafin in Baghdad

Palestinian factions call ‘day of rage’ on day of Trump peace plan

Palestinians often mark “days of rage” by initiating clashes with IDF soldiers in the West Bank and Israeli policemen in east Jerusalem.

By KHALED ABU TOAMEH JANUARY 26, 2020 20:24

Palestinian factions on Sunday called for a “day of rage” for the day US President Donald Trump releases his long-awaited plan for Mideast peace. Parts of the plan are expected to be publicized during separate meetings in Washington this week between Trump, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Blue and White chairman Benny Gantz. Palestinians often mark “days of rage” by initiating clashes with IDF soldiers in the West Bank and Israeli policemen in east Jerusalem.  The latest call for a “day of rage” came as the Palestinian Authority continued to threaten that Trump’s upcoming plan, also known as the “Deal of the Century,” would ignite mass protests in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. PA officials have also hinted that the Palestinian leadership may renounce all signed agreements with Israel and halt security coordination between the Palestinians and Israel in the West Bank. The factions, in a statement signed by the National and Islamic Forces in Ramallah and El-Bireh, called on Palestinians to consider the day the peace plan is announced as a “day of popular rage” against the “deal of shame.” The group urged Palestinians to unanimously state their rejection of Trump’s plan. The group called on Palestinians to express their anger toward the US administration by removing all street signs concerning US funding for various Palestinian projects. It also called for boycotting US goods, the same way Palestinians have been boycotting settlement products.

Dershowitz changes his mind on impeachment requirements, argues crime must be committed

By Andrew O'Reilly | Fox News

As President Trump’s impeachment trial moves into the defense phases, attorney Alan Dershowitz on Sunday said that he has changed his mind on whether a crime is needed to remove a president from office -- a reversal of his stance during the impeachment of President Bill Clinton in 1999. Dershowitz, who recently joined Trump’s impeachment defense team, argued that a crime needs to be committed to impeach a president – a 180-degree shift from his previous thinking – and added that even after lengthy arguments by the House managers last week, he still sees Democrats' arguments falling far short of swaying the Senate to remove Trump from office. “The conduct has to be criminal in nature -- it can’t be abuse of power; it can’t be obstruction of Congress,” he said. “Those are precisely the arguments that the framers rejected.” NEW UKRAINE CHARGES FLY AMID GIULIANI 'EVIDENCE,' SECRET TRUMP TAPE The Harvard Law School professor said that he changed his thinking after doing more research on the matter. During an interview in the midst of the Clinton impeachment, Dershowitz said, “you don’t need a technical crime” to impeach a president. “I did say that then, and then I’ve done all the extensive research,” Dershowitz said on Sunday. “I’ve been immersing myself in dusty old books, and I’ve concluded that no, it has to be crime.” Dershowitz called the charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, which the House impeached Trump on in December, “vague” and “open-ended.” “Even if the factual allegations are true -- which are highly disputed and which the defense team will show contrary evidence -- but even if true, they did not allege impeachable offenses,” Dershowitz said on “Fox News Sunday.” “So there can’t be a constitutionally authorized impeachment.”  Dershowitz is expected to argue next week that an impeachable offense requires criminal-like conduct, even though many legal scholars say that's not true. Defense lawyers say Trump was a victim not only of Democratic rage but also of overzealous agents and prosecutors. One of Trump’s lawyers, Jay Sekulow, cited mistakes made by the FBI in its surveillance of a former Trump campaign aide in the now-concluded Trump-Russia election investigation, and referred to the multimillion-dollar cost of that probe. The Senate is heading next week toward a pivotal vote on Democratic demands for testimony from top Trump aides, including Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney and former National Security Adviser John Bolton, who refused to appear before the House. It would take four Republican senators to join the Democratic minority to seek witnesses, and so far the numbers appear lacking. The Associated Press contributed to this report.

It's Time Democrats Are Charged With Treason & Sedition And Held Accountable For Their High Crimes Upon America With Their Entire 'Coup Attempt' Based Upon 'Fruit Of The Poisonous Tree'

January 17, 2020  By John C. Velisek, US Navy, Retired - All News Pipeline

On January 28, 2018, Adam Schiff presented his lie-filled memo entitled "Correcting the Record-The Russia Investigation." It was a memo that was disseminated to all the media and progressive socialists that was an attempt to defend the deceptive tactics used by the FBI to obtain a warrant on Carter Page, and from there, the entire Trump campaign. The information that has come forward since then has proven that the memo was basically false and contradicted the truth that has been shown. It was nothing more than a smear campaign of his predecessor, Republican Rep. Devin Nines. His lies even went so far as to try to remove Rep. Nunes from being the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. The memo was meant to perform two services for the lying Adam Schiff. One was to discredit Chairman Nunes, and the second was to claim that the manipulation and lies sent to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court were lies to facilitate the illegal spying on the Trump campaign. It has since been proven that Christopher Steele was in contact with top FBI officials well before Adam Schiff claimed and showed the bias and motivations of Christopher Steel had for candidate Trump. Adam Schiff neglected to mention that Bruce Ohr met with Steele on July 30, 2016. Also, at the meeting was Nellie Ohr, who had been hired by Fusion GPS head Glen Simpson in late 2015. The next day, July 31, Bruce Ohr met with Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Lisa Page. He was referred to Peter Strozk, who was a crucial figure in the Trump- Russia collusion hoax. In August Ohr briefed Senior Justice Officials including the Steele dossier to Andrew Weissman, a soon to be member of the Mueller witchhunt. A portion of the memo that Adam Schiff fabricated mischaracterized the dates and significance of the meetings described, and the media made full use of the lies in the Schiff memo. None of this was corrected until Bruce Ohr’s testimony proved that Schiff was lying. In typical Adam Schiff, there has never been any explanation for the lies he put forth. (ANP EMERGENCY FUNDRAISER! Following Susan Duclos' recent heart attacks and hospitalization, All News Pipeline will need some financial help in the days and weeks ahead. So if you like stories like this, please consider donating to ANP to help keep us in this 'Info-war' for America at a time of systematic censorship and widespread corruttpion) Another lie in the Schiff memo was the claim that magazine articles such as a Yahoo news article by Michal Isikoff was independently corroborated and was not provided the information in the Steele dossier by Steele. Isikoff has confirmed that a meeting between Isikoff, Steele, and Glenn Simpson from Fusion GPS was the impetus for the story. Schiff should amend his memo, and publically apologize for misleading the American public. Another lie in the Shiff memo was that the FBI "independently corroborated" that Carter Page had traveled to Moscow in July 2016 to meet with two Putin associated and was offered bribes to work to ease sanctions that the U.S. has implemented. This lie was never mentioned in the Mueller report. To this day, and after all the lies and smears that pencil-neck Schiff pushed to the American public about Carter Page, no charges against Carter Page have ever been filed. Never explained by the ethically challenged Adam Schiff was his meeting in Aspen with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson. Simpson was an integral witness in the House Intelligence Committee, whose chairman was Adam Schiff. It was supposedly a brief meeting and did not discuss the investigation. Because of a photo taken in Aspen, Schiff could not hide the meeting. Never explained was Simpson, who is at the heart of the Steele dossier that was used to go directly after Carter Page with a lie and was used in the quest of Adam Schiff to find any semblance of collusion. It is now known that Glenn Simpson lied to Congress about his meeting with DOJ official Bruce Ohr. What did Schiff know about that? When Schiff was made the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee in November 2018, his first act shut down all the investigations into the fraud and innuendo that were a part of the FISA warrant. It was Schiff, as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, who went to great lengths to hide the fact the Fusion GPS was hired through a law firm at the direction of the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Pencil neck Adam Schiff went out of his way to obstruct the investigation to identify the funding. It took going to court to get the information that Adam Schiff was trying to hide. In an unprecedented move, Schiff even went further and asked Glenn Simpson about his suggestions of where the investigation should go. It is informative that the chairman of the investigation would ask for direction from a biased witness who had lied to Congress, being paid by Schiff’s party to collect unverified opposition research. The media, complicit with the progressive socialist talking points, have since March of 2017 have continually pushed the talking points of Adam Schiff about there being “more than circumstantial evidence now.” He stopped mentioning this only when the Senate House Intelligence has shown publicly, that no evidence had been found. They are now attempting to zero in supposed financial dealings in the Trump family. Once again, Schiff has worked with Glenn Simpson, that was an integral part of the Trump-Russia collusion hoax. Schiff, throughout that Russian hoax, has smeared innocent men and women of being Russian agents. He lied about calls before the Trump tower meeting that Don Jr. made. Schiff lied about the FBI probe that was based on the Steele dossier. He lied about Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen being told by President Trump to lie. The Russian collusion hoax is primarily based on the fact that the hacked e-mails that were put out through Wikipedia were hacked by the Russians. The only sign that this was true was an investigation by a third-party investigator, and Adam Schiff can not show a link between Trump and the hacking. Even the 13 Russians that were indicted and will never see the inside of a courtroom do not show any corroboration between anyone in the Trump campaign. General Flynn was indicted on a process crime that even the FBI agents who interviewed Gen. Flynn said that Gen. Flynn did not lie contrary to Schiffs assertions. It is Adam Schiff who can not see what is plain sight and uses his self serving lies to mislead the American people. Gen. Flynn was the incoming administration's national security advisor and had every right to discuss with a foreign counterpart regarding sanction. We can not take whatever Adam Schiff says at face value owing to the massive amount of leaks that Schiff leaked during the hearings. Nor can we ignore the classified information that Schiff intentionally placed in his memo so that he could whine about being silenced when the information was redacted for being a danger to national security. Adam Schiff has yet to explain why he met with Michael Cohen for 10 hours before his testimony before Schiff’s committee. Cohen admitted that they discussed topics that were to be raised in the hearing. The question then becomes, did Schiff coach Cohen to get the answers he was looking for? Patrick Boland, a Schiff schill, declared that there was nothing nefarious about the meeting with Cohen and said Schiff welcomed the opportunity to meet with potential witnesses to determine relevant topics to cover to make productive use of their time. It also informed Schiff to go to the media, “This Week with George Stephanopoulos," to say he expected Cohen to disclose alleged crimes, including money laundering and obstruction of justice. This boils down to demanding what a witness will say, an actual obstruction of justice that deserves to be prosecuted. When the conservatives take the House back in the next election, there will be a possibility to have some questions answered. The House Ethics committee should push for an investigation of Adam Schiff for witness tampering, obstruction of justice, illegal leaks of non-public information misleading Congress, and character assassination of Devin Nunes.

The Mysterious New “SARS-Like Virus” That Is Killing People In China Has Now Spread To Japan

January 16, 2020 by Michael Snyder

On top of everything else that has happened so far in 2020, a very mysterious “SARS-like virus” that doctors have never seen before is causing grave concern among global health officials. It has been identified as “a coronavirus”, but that category covers a very broad range of illnesses. If you have a common cold right now, it was caused by a coronavirus. But SARS and MERS also came from the same virus family, and those two outbreaks made headlines all over the world. In 2002 and 2003, SARS infected more than 8,000 people worldwide, and more than 700 of them ended up dying. Global health officials are hoping that what we are now facing won’t be any worse than that, but at this point they just don’t know enough about this mysterious new virus to make any firm projections. What we do know is that this outbreak just started, and China has just announced that this virus has claimed a second life. The following comes from the BBC… A second person has died in China from a new, pneumonia-like virus, local officials have announced. They say the death was recorded in the eastern city of Wuhan, where the outbreak began in December. And we also know that there have been at least two cases where people have transported the virus outside of China via airplane. The first case happened earlier this week when a woman flew from China to Thailand… The new virus, known for now as 2019-nCoV, was first identified on Jan. 7, about a week after officials first reported a cluster of pneumonia cases in Wuhan, WHO said. Recently, officials reported the first “exported” case of the virus in Thailand. In that case, a resident of Wuhan got on a direct flight to Thailand along with several members of her family and a tour group, according to WHO. When the 61-year-old woman arrived at the airport, she was found to have a fever, and she was taken to the hospital where she tested positive for 2019-nCoV.  Subsequently, on Thursday we learned that a man that flew from China to Japan had also contracted the virus. The following comes from Time Magazine… Japan’s government said Thursday a man treated for pneumonia after returning from China has tested positive for the new coronavirus identified as a possible cause of an outbreak in the Chinese city of Wuhan. The man developed a fever and coughs on Jan. 3 while in Wuhan, returned to Japan on Jan. 6, and was hospitalized four days later due to persistent coughs and fever, with his X-ray image showing signs of pneumonia, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare said. At first, global health officials were greatly downplaying the possibility of human-to-human transmission. But now even the World Health Organization has been forced to admit that “limited human-to-human transmission” may be happening… There may have been limited human-to-human transmission of a new coronavirus in China within families, and it is possible there could be a wider outbreak, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Tuesday.  In other words, the evidence has forced them to change their tune, but they are still trying to not alarm the general public too much. Unfortunately, the truth is that this outbreak is still very new, they have never seen this virus before, and they are still trying to figure out exactly how dangerous it is. Hopefully this is not going to develop into a major pandemic. Without a doubt, it is certainly possible that this whole thing could fizzle out even faster than the bird flu scare did. But let us not forget that a horrific pandemic about 100 years ago killed between 50 million and 100 million people. The following comes from Wikipedia… The 1918 influenza pandemic (January 1918 – December 1920; colloquially known as Spanish flu) was an unusually deadly influenza pandemic, the first of the two pandemics involving H1N1 influenza virus.[1] It infected 500 million people around the world,[2] including people on remote Pacific islands and in the Arctic. Probably 50 million, and possibly as high as 100 million (three to five percent of Earth’s population at the time) died, making it one of the deadliest epidemics in human history.[3][4][5] Bill Gates has identified pandemics as one of the three greatest threats that humanity is facing, and he says that we are woefully unprepared if one were to break out today. In fact, he says that we should be preparing for one right now as if we were preparing for war… “In the case of biological threats, that sense of urgency is lacking,” Gates said in a 2018 presentation hosted by the New England Journal of Medicine. “The world needs to prepare for pandemics in the same serious way it prepares for war.” Sadly, authorities will probably never make preparation a true priority until a major pandemic has already begun. The symptoms of this new mystery virus include congestion, headache, cough and fever. Of course those exact same symptoms are associated with the common cold. If you have shortness of breath, chills or body aches in addition to the other symptoms, that could be an indication that you should get checked out. But there have been no reports of this virus reaching the United States yet, and hopefully we won’t see that happen at all. For the Chinese, this outbreak comes at a particularly bad time, because their Lunar New Year celebration is on January 25th. Hundreds of millions of people will be traveling around China, and that could potentially accelerate the spread of the virus. It may have been prudent for Chinese officials to completely cancel all of the festivities, but at this point there are absolutely no plans to do that. So we will watch and see what happens. If this particular virus doesn’t become a pandemic, scientists assure us that it is only a matter of time before some other virus does. And considering the hour in which we live, we are certainly very vulnerable to a potential pandemic right now. Once again, I want to stress that there is no need for people in the U.S. to start freaking out about this virus just yet. Only two people have died, and there have been no reported cases in the U.S. so far. But as we have seen in the past, global air travel can spread a virus around the world very quickly, and authorities are still trying to figure out how dangerous this new mystery disease really is.

Colorado Getting Non-Citizens Off The Public Welfare Dole — By Making Them Cops!

By Dean Garrison - January 18, 2020

Things get more bizarre by the day in America. People in Colorado have evidently smoked too much of their legal weed because serving and protecting no longer requires citizenship. Here are the job requirements from Colorado.gov: Hiring Requirements These are the minimum requirements to be hired in the state of Colorado. Each agency’s requirements differ. By law, an individual must pass a Colorado POST basic academy, a certification examination administered by the POST Board, a physical and psychological examination, and a background check before they may serve as a peace officer in Colorado. Provisional certification is available for out-of-state officers. Please note that students in training to be law enforcement officers and those whose certification has expired are ineligible to serve as police officers in the state of Colorado. Background Checks Under Rule 14 – Fingerprint-Based Criminal History Record Check, every applicant must be fingerprinted and cleared through the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The fingerprints can be complete by an out-of-state law enforcement agency but must be done on the Colorado POST fingerprint card. The academy, agency or the individual may send the fingerprint card to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, 690 Kipling, Suite 3000, Denver, CO 80215 with the $39.50 processing fee (certified check or money orders only – made out to CBI). Alternatively, applicants can submit fingerprints digitally through the CBI CABS system, using a CBI approved vendor. For full instructions about how to submit fingerprints either via fingerprint card or digitally, click here: Fingerpint Card Sumission Instructions. Contact Information Joe Piccinetti Compliance Specialist 720-508-6724

Click to email. Rule 14 – Fingerprint-Based Criminal History Record Check State law prohibits POST certification of any person who has been convicted of a felony or certain misdemeanors. For more information about this topic, please refer to the Basic Certification page. Additionally, individuals with domestic violence convictions may not be eligible to serve as peace officers, due to federal laws. Upon passing the basic academy, POST certification exam, and background check, an applicant for Basic certification under Board Rule 10 – Basic Peace Officer Certification will receive a certificate allowing them to seek employment as a Colorado peace officer. Additional Requirements After receiving POST certification, an individual must meet additional requirements before being appointed as a peace officer. State law requires a physical examination and a psychological evaluation of an applicant be completed before any such applicant may be appointed. The hiring agency determines the scope of the examination and evaluation. The hiring agency also determines standards of acceptability of such results. In addition, please note that individual law enforcement agencies may evaluate a variety of additional factors as part of their own hiring process. Some of these factors may include:

Written employment test Oral board interview Physical agility test Polygraph test Minimum age (usually 21) Clean driving record Additional college education Complete background investigation, including fingerprint check, interviews of neighbors and employers Be sure to check with individual agencies to determine their particular employment requirements. POST does not determine agency employment requirements. Non-United States Citizens Each agency is responsible for determining the employment eligibility of applicants, including matters regarding citizenship. Employment ctiizenship requirements and peace officer certification citizenship requirements are not necessarily the same. Click here if you would like information about what is required for a non-United States citizen to become certified. I just noticed the typo. Colorado can’t even spell the word citizenship on their own official state website. Why? Because how would the non-citizens running and maintaining their website be expected to know how to spell a word that is so foreign to them? This is where our country is headed. Baltimore: Illegal Alien Hired by Church as Van Driver Faces 19 Charges Stemming from Molesting 13 yo Girl New York: Illegal Aliens Line Up Around The Block For Driver’s Licenses Under New Law CA governor Newsom pardons 3 convicted illegal aliens to prevent their deportation Fifth Illegal Alien Accused of Rape Arrested in Maryland County in LESS THAN A MONTH Worst Serial Killer EVER? — Illegal Alien From Kenya Now Being Investigated in 750 Deaths Willingly putting guns in the hands of non-citizens and giving them a license to kill isn’t as horrible as it sounds. It’s just a good step in the right direction toward population control. How in the hell can Colorado think non-citizen cops is a rational idea? Maybe I’m just a little closed-minded. Seriously, what could possibly go wrong?

The Garbage Crisis In Venezuela: Sanitation Issues For When The SHTF

January 18, 2020 by IWB by J.G. Martinez via The Organic Prepper

It´s surprising how bad news related to situations generated by the collapse doesn´t stop. I have some ties to a relatively small town. It´s located not so close to any major city, not so far away neither. It´s not so rural, and it still has some of the charms of small towns, while being big enough to not be boring. That being said, let´s proceed with the most important news I´ve received from my sources there. With the lack of income, as all of the few money produced is going to someplace (which is not exactly the majority of the Venezuelan people´s pockets but to some tax haven, or maybe private accounts in Turkey, Iran, Andorra or God knows where). Managing a 30 million people country is not exactly easy. And with such a stressed economy, our country is a real mess. But it´s the only one I´ve got, and have to love it. There’s a sanitation crisis. As in most of the cities, the collapse has impeded to the (not elected but imposed by the ruling mafia) “authorities” to handle properly some crucial aspects like city sanitation and public garbage collection system. Collector trucks are no longer functional in almost any city. This originates a huge business for private “spontaneous” entrepreneurs, who swiftly prompt to offer their garbage collection to the communities. Of course, the city employees in charge of the trucks have (very likely) been previously bribed to sabotage the trucks and equipment. No surprises there. Otherwise, those trucks would be working flawlessly, those things are built for heavy-duty. I know what I´m talking about. These “entrepreneurs” hire a few young men to collect and make their routes in the communities. When these brave, generous and kind souls (and yes, I´m being sarcastic as heck) don´t show, garbage starts to pile up. This is exactly what has been happening these last few weeks. For some reason, from November to after Mardi Gras in February, fires in some places suddenly start. Wild bushes are burning to the ground. Entire mountains that otherwise would be covered in green, are desolated and sad. It´s something unexplainable, and it´s just one of the most outstanding pieces of evidence we could have been populated with the wrong kind of seed. Because many of the areas surrounding the places where fires appear, are the same blocking the roads with violence demanding “the government” to install water pipelines (instead of banding together and work for one month digging a pond to collect some rain water…but maybe I´m wrong by thinking this way).

Trash is being improperly handled and people are getting sick. When the “private” garbage collection system does not work, people have to deal with the waste. When the town is over 20k people…this can start to become uphill. Especially if it´s a small valley. So people started to select random places to pile up the garbage bags, throw some fuel on, and burn them. My friends living in that town reported that, after two months of such treatment, there was a thick layer of smoke, almost every day since they began. The person submitting this report was sick with pneumonia, indeed. This is a strong alert. He was in bed, and unable to work. All of the garbage must be properly selected for disposal. It´s not healthy to send such amounts of chemicals into the atmosphere!! That person reported to me feeling his nostrils burn, and a few hours later his throat and even his eyes were swollen. This and other symptoms, like sudden weakening and being tired, was what made him look for medical care. Thanks to God, it’s a small town, and good doctors (many of them known by my parents since they were kids) have been able to survive the crisis without running away, as many nurses in the private practice.  You just can´t burn plastics, polymers and all kinds of similar stuff and expect the wind to take it away harmlessly. It´s going to some other place, and deposit itself there. It´s heavier than air! What were you expecting? I am not a specialist on this. But some useful lessons can be learned. Those of you in the bigger countries with more industries, have already a huge advantage at your favor: a fully developed industry, and a recycling culture dating from decades ago. An entire industry surrounding the recycling, indeed. That is wonderful, and one of the best things we should learn all over the world. Most of the South American countries have barely an incipient industry of this kind, at best. Why, if this is an industry with so much potential? I really don´t know. But in the 5 countries, I´ve been, it´s not easy to find a well-tuned recycling facility. Some exceptions, of course, but we could do much better. The worst thing is, this is happening in some other parts of the country. Waste is being openly burned, without any consideration for the inhabitants of the nearby communities. This is generating already some diseases in the breathing apparatus of people. We all know already how antibiotics are scarce and expensive, so getting sick because of a totally avoidable cause is…well, unfair. So to speak. People are burning here and there the trash, using empty lots, without too much control nor care and the smoke is getting people sick. Biodigesters are one answer. Most people don´t have the habit of selecting the waste to dispose of in a more environmentally friendly manner. That´s why biodigesters are one of my priorities. Using all of the fruits and vegetable residues to generate fuel for my kitchen in a country where you have to get on a 5 hours line to buy bottled gas? Priceless. (F*** u, Commies. Pardon my French, people) It´s quite interesting to learn this. One could suppose that, under the current circumstances, less food and consumables available because of the collapsing economy would mean much less waste. But as I´ve mentioned in some other articles, something odd seems to be happening with the economy: over 120 fancy, luxury places have been opened, and almost all of them with ties traceable straight to people related to the ruling mafia. And this, somehow, added to the recent Christmas season, ended up increasing the amount of waste. However, people found some creative ways to “recycle” some stuff, especially with the lack of toilet paper. There is a lot of options with this. But let´s keep talking about waste disposal. Biodigesters would take care of most of our vegetable residues. Used TP (and anything used to replace it) can be burned in a small, and dedicated firepit dug into the ground. However, polymers need some other treatment to decompose properly, just like metals. It´s not all that bad, after all. If we choose wisely, we should be in a position generating a small amount of waste, manageable enough without harming our patch of land and consequently affecting the surrounding ecosystem. Be sure to have masks. After this story, I find quite important to have in our BOB a good gas or dust protection mask. I´d have to select carefully what to carry because an Israeli type mask would mean a huge problem if some commies get their nose inside my bag. Those guys have been brainwashed to the extreme, and just by showing off to their superiors (although this attitude is universally found, really) they are doing their work, could make someone go through a hard time just for fun. Roaming on a bike, and getting into a dense cloud product of wildfires (this has already happened to me, and it´s quite dangerous and scary). I even saw many (deadly) accidents because of stupid drivers launching inside a dense cloud next to wildfires at the side of the road, without any visibility. Gene Pool cleaning, though. A side effect of the garbage piles, other than suffocating the population, is the increasing amount of vermin like rats and mice. This collapse has not been something easy to deal with. It has affected millions of people, my family included in one way or another. It´s not something you wish to get into, but you just can´t avoid it. You can be prepared, or partially prepared as I thought I was. If my financial situation in the good times would have been better, my cottage would have been ready. It´s a shame family situation got into all of this and messed up with the plans. Should I have known how things were abroad, I´d thought twice about being here for so long and spending all of my hard-earned money paying rent, instead of investing in my cottage. However, some reports of improvement have been showing up. However, this is going to need a careful review, with boots on the ground to assess properly the degree of the devastation. People with businesses can´t just pack and leave behind their lifetime efforts. This is something that many people seem not to understand when I talk about coming back, even for a short time. There are a lot of patrimonies I have to take care of. Not just mine but my kiddo’s. That will be covered in more detail in the next few weeks. So please stay tuned.

TEPCO says new leak has spilt 20,000 litres of radioactive coolant at the stricken Fukushima Nuclear Plant: It is now almost 7 years since Prime Minister Shinzo Abe declared everything is "under control,"

Friday, 17 January 2020

Radiation-contaminated debris and soil are stockpiled for disposal near the Tokyo Electric Power Company's embattled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. (Photo: Christopher Furlong / Getty Images) Tokyo Electric Power Company says coolant has seeped out from an underground frozen soil wall built around its crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. The frozen soil wall came into operation four years ago. It was built to keep groundwater from flowing into reactor buildings. They were damaged by the March 2011 earthquake, tsunami and subsequent nuclear meltdowns. The utility firm, TEPCO, says it found coolant leaking at three locations from components that connect pipes in the wall. The company had noticed a reduction in coolant in its tank earlier this month and was searching for the cause. TEPCO says it believes 20,000 of 1.1 million litres of the coolant has leaked, but that this will not affect the operation of the wall. The company says it will replace the components in the wall and repair another leak that was found in December. nhk.org Almost six years after Prime Minister Shinzo Abe famously declared the contaminated water problem at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant "under control," today it remains anything but. Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) continues to face difficulties in dealing with water contaminated with radioactive substances at its crippled plant. About 18,000 tons of highly contaminated water remains accumulated in reactor buildings and other places. Abe made the "under control," declaration in September 2013 while Tokyo was bidding to win the 2020 Summer Games. In reality, however, the situation is not under control even now. In a meeting of the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) in June, one of its members, Nobuhiko Ban, told TEPCO officials, "I want you to show whether you have a prospect (for the reduction of contaminated water) or you have given up." The water level did not fall as planned in an area of a basement floor at the No. 3 reactor building for two months. Asked why the level did not drop, TEPCO officials offered only vague explanations in the meeting. Ban made the remark out of irritation. Highly contaminated water that has accumulated in reactor buildings and turbine buildings is a major concern at the Fukushima plant. In addition to water that was used to cool melted nuclear fuel at the No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 reactors, groundwater also has flowed into those buildings through cracks. The concentration of radioactive substances in highly contaminated water is about 100 million times that of the contaminated water that has been processed and stored in tanks. Immediately after the nuclear accident at the Fukushima plant in March 2011, highly contaminated water leaked into the sea through underground tunnels. As a result, radioactive substances whose concentrations were higher than allowable standards were detected in fish and other seafood. After the nuclear accident, about 100,000 tons of water initially accumulated in the basement portions of buildings that housed the No. 1, No. 2, No. 3 and No. 4 reactors and buildings that accommodated turbines. TEPCO has removed groundwater through wells. It also created "frozen walls" in the ground by freezing soil around the buildings. Using those methods, the company has decreased the flow of groundwater into the buildings and, as a result, the level of highly contaminated water has dropped there. Nine years since the nuclear accident occurred, the volume of highly contaminated water in the buildings has fallen to 18,000 tons. TEPCO aims to reduce the volume further to 6,000 tons by the end of fiscal 2020. Fairwinds.org

The Robots Are Coming, And They Are Going To Take Over Millions Of Jobs

January 13, 2020 When we get to a point where literally just about everything can be done more cheaply and more efficiently by robots, the elite won’t have any use for the rest of us at all. For most of human history, the wealthy have needed the poor to do the work that is necessary to run their businesses and make them even wealthier. In this day and age we like to call ourselves “employees”, but in reality we are their servants. Some of us may be more well paid than others, but the vast majority of us are expending our best years serving their enterprises so that we can pay the bills. Unfortunately, that paradigm is rapidly changing, and many of the jobs that humans are doing today will be done by robots in the not too distant future. In fact, millions of human workers have already been displaced, and as you will see below experts are warning that the job losses are likely to greatly accelerate in the years to come. Competition with technology is one of the reasons why wage growth has been so stagnant over the past couple of decades. The only way it makes sense for an employer to hire you is if you can do a job less expensively than some form of technology can do it. As a result, close to two-thirds of the jobs that have been created in the United States over the past couple of decades have been low wage jobs, and the middle class is being steadily hollowed out. But as robots continue to become cheaper and more efficient, even our lowest paying jobs will be vanishing in enormous numbers. For example, it is being reported that executives at Walmart plan to greatly increase the size of their “robot army”… Walmart Inc.’s robot army is growing. The world’s largest retailer will add shelf-scanning robots to 650 more U.S. stores by the end of the summer, bringing its fleet to 1,000. The six-foot-tall Bossa Nova devices, equipped with 15 cameras each, roam aisles and send alerts to store employees’ handheld devices when items are out of stock, helping to solve a vexing problem that costs retailers nearly a trillion dollars annually, according to researcher IHL Group. In addition to scanning shelves, Walmart already has a whole host of robots doing such things as scrubbing floors, unloading trucks and gathering grocery orders… The new robots, designed by San Francisco-based Bossa Nova Robotics Inc., join the ranks of Walmart’s increasingly automated workforce which also includes devices to scrub floors, unload trucks and gather online-grocery orders. Meanwhile, Walmart has been testing “a new employee structure” which is intended to “cut down the size of its store management staff”… Walmart is testing out a new employee structure within its stores in an attempt to cut down the size of its store management staff. The nation’s biggest employer is looking to see if it can have fewer midlevel store managers overseeing workers, with these managers seeing both their responsibilities and their pay increase. So the employees that survive will get a “pay increase” to go with a huge increase in responsibility, but what about all the others that are having their jobs eliminated? Don’t worry, because in an interview about this new initiative one Walmart executive assured us that their employees “like smaller teams”… “Associates like smaller teams, and they like having a connection with a leader. They want something they can own and to know if they are winning or losing every day. And today that does not always happen,” Drew Holler, U.S. senior vice president of associate experience, said in an interview. Today, Wal-Mart is the largest employer in the United States by a wide margin. But these coming changes will ultimately mean a lot more robot workers and a lot less human workers. Of course countless other heartless corporations are implementing similar measures. And considering the fact that one recent survey found that 97 percent of U.S. CFOs believe that a recession is coming in 2020, we are likely to see a “thinning of the ranks” in company after company as this year rolls along. Sadly, even if there was no economic downturn coming we would continue to lose jobs to robots. According to one study, a whopping 45 percent of our current jobs “can be automated”… Here’s the truth: Robots are already starting to take jobs from hourly human workers, and it’s going to continue. Research from McKinsey found that 45% of current jobs can be automated. We need to stop avoiding the situation and create real solutions to help displaced workers. In this day and age, no worker is safe. I know someone that gave his heart and soul to a big corporation for many years, and then one day he was called into the office when he arrived for work and he was out of a job by lunch. He hadn’t done anything wrong at all. It is just that his heartless corporate bosses had decided to eliminate his position throughout the entire company. If you think that they actually care about you, then you are just fooling yourself. Unfortunately, the job losses are just going to keep accelerating. In fact, it is being projected that approximately 20 million manufacturing jobs around the globe could be taken over by robots by the year 2030… Robots could take over 20 million manufacturing jobs around the world by 2030, economists claimed Wednesday. According to a new study from Oxford Economics, within the next 11 years there could be 14 million robots put to work in China alone. And as wealthy executives lay off low wage workers in staggering numbers, that will make the growing gap between the rich and the poor even worse… “As a result of robotization, tens of millions of jobs will be lost, especially in poorer local economies that rely on lower-skilled workers. This will therefore translate to an increase in income inequality,” the study’s authors said. The good news is that the full extent of this ominous scenario is not likely to completely play out. The bad news is that this is because our society is rapidly moving toward complete and utter collapse. I wish that there was an easy solution to this growing problem. In a free market system, should anyone be trying to mandate that employers must hire human workers? But if millions upon millions of men and women can’t feed their families because they don’t have jobs, that will create the sort of social nightmare that we cannot even imagine right now. This is something that all of the 2020 presidential candidates should be talking about, because this is a crisis that is spinning out of control, and it is getting worse with each passing day.

Transgender propaganda is media’s way of making you believe 2 plus 2 equals 5

Once the media have us believing that trangenderism is real, what else will they have us believe?

Thu Jan 16, 2020 - 9:23 pm EST By Andrea Widberg

January 16, 2020 (American Thinker) — George Orwell knew that totalitarian dictatorships retain power by compelling people to agree that 2+2=5. But what happens if it's not the government, but the media that lie? With the American media pushing transgenderism, we're finding out. With accelerating force, the media insist that biological sex is meaningless and that people's sex is determined by their feelings. We are told to accept that people, through wishing, hormones, and surgery, can magically become the opposite sex. Over the years, the homosexual rights movement has made people realize that, in a free society, no one should be penalized for a sexual preference. Today, the transgender movement, using the homosexual movement, is working with the media to force us to give it the same rights and respect. This ignores that homosexuality is different from so-called transgenderism. Homosexuality does not force us to deny biology. Homosexual men are still men, and homosexual women are still women. Their differences are behavioral. Transgenderism, however, is not about behavioral choices or biology. It's about denying fundamental biological realities. The saddest thing is that those who have accepted the media's drumbeat, often as an antidote to deep depression, are discovering to their cost that it's a lie. Those committed to individual liberty will let people claim to be the opposite sex, or a camel or a Martian. But while the First Amendment ensures that our government can neither tell us that these beliefs are true nor punish us for denying those beliefs, our media are subtly trying to recalibrate our brains. The latest shot fired in this media war to have us accept that 2+2=5 is an NBC article bemoaning women suffering from periods. Wait. That's wrong. It's not about the fact that, since the dawn of humankind, periods have been a pain in the tuchis. Instead, the article is about the psychic suffering of women who think they're men but, in relentless fealty to biological reality, still have periods: When transgender model and activist Kenny Ethan Jones experienced his [sic] first period, he [sic] faced both physical and psychological pain. Initially, Jones, who had not yet come out as trans at the time, felt like he [sic] was losing control and didn't understand what was happening to his [sic] body. However, one thing was clear: He [sic] didn't feel like himself. "I didn't believe that having periods would be a part of my lived experience," Jones told NBC News. "I felt isolated; everything about periods was tailored to girls, yet me, a boy [sic], was experiencing this and nothing in the world documented that." He [sic] currently experiences a wide range of challenges with his [sic] monthly bleeding, especially when it comes to getting his [sic] hands on menstrual hygiene products. Women all have a wide range of challenges when it comes to periods. They are painful, messy, and inconvenient, and they alienate women from their own bodies. You're not different, Kenny. You just think you are. The real horror for Kenny, though, is that the companies who make tampons, pads, and other products for menstruation keep marketing them as if their customer base is...get this...female: Some transgender and gender-nonconforming people who menstruate, like Jones, say when the products are categorized as women's products, they can feel alienated — and may even avoid purchasing them altogether. The same women who believe they're men also believe they deserve special price breaks on menstrual products...because they're not really women. They're just men who every month have a period just like women: The hurdles some trans men [sic] and gender-nonconforming people who menstruate say they face include the high cost of period supplies[.] The article demonstrates that our media are relentlessly using the transgender movement to force Americans to believe that 2+2=5. Once the media have us believing that trangenderism is real, what else will they have us believe? Perhaps they'll have us believe that, when Iran shot down a passenger jet flying out of Tehran Airport, Donald Trump was responsible for the 176 innocent people who died. What's sad is that, even in Iran, a tyrannical nation in which lies are government currency, the people aren't buying that story. Published with permission from the American Thinker.

VIRGINIA GUN CONFISCATION IS DESIGNED TO BECOME THE PRETEXT FOR CIVIL WAR! BOB GRISWOLD & DAVE HODGES

Submitted by Dave Hodges on Friday, January 17, 2020 - 11:06.

ANTIFA, PATRIOTS , GOV NORTHAM, 2A SANCTUARIES & CIVIL WAR! BOB GRISWOLD AND DAVE HODGES

it is true that the Deep State and their Democratic Party minions want to disarm America because it will make much easier to implement the Soviet-style government that the globalists desire. However, gun confiscation is also a means to an end. Gun confiscation could very easily lead to civil war and that is what the Deep State and their globalist controlles desire because they know that they cannot win an election against Donald J. Trump. Bob Griswold and Dave Hodges recently discussed the means to execute the coup that is presently in process. Some of the topics covered in this interview include the following:

Bernie Sanders campaign espousing FEMA camps for Trump supporters and burning down cities if Trump is elected in November  Persecution of conservatives  The game plan of the Deep State  Personal Preparation for what is coming

Robert Griswold, owener of Ready Made Resources, will be a speaker at the Branson True Legends Conference, July 10-12.

Dave Hodges has been publishing the Common Sense Show since 2012. The Common Sense Show features a wide variety of important topics that range from the loss of constitutional liberties, to the subsequent implementation of a police state under world governance, to exploring the limits of human potential. The primary purpose of The Common Sense Show is to provide Americans with the tools necessary to reclaim both our individual and national sovereignty.

Hundreds Seek Free Firearms Training for US Church Security Teams - Gun Rights Group

18:10 16.01.2020

WASHINGTON (Sputniks) - An offer from an Ohio sheriff’s office for free gun training and firearms permits for church security teams elicited hundreds of responses within days, the National Rifle Association (NRA) reported in an article on the organisation’s website on Thursday. "Probably within two days we had 200 people that sent emails in. We’ve been inundated with people from other states and counties as well", Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones told the NRA publication titled "America’s 1st Freedom". "We’re only going to train those the church hierarchy wants trained and we’re going to help them set up security, big or large churches, we’re going to make this happen", Jones said. Jones pointed out that his office has two classes scheduled for February with room for about 50 trainees in each class. More than a dozen deadly shootings have hit houses of worship in recent years, including a church shooting in the state of Texas last month that killed three people. The attack was halted within seconds when a legally armed congregant shot and killed the gunman. In one of the deadliest attacks - a November 2017 shooting also in Texas that killed 26 and wounded 20 - a nearby resident shot and wounded the gunman as he drove away. The shooter later committed suicide.

VIDEO: US special operations just purchased Sig Sauer’s new machine gun – here’s what it can do

The Sig Sauer MG 338 machine gun. (Sig Sauer/Released)

January 16, 2020 Ryan Morgan

The U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) has completed its safety certifications of Sig Sauer’s latest machine gun offering, the MG 338, and has begun purchasing the weapons systems. In a press release, the firearms company confirmed it had passed the certifications and delivered the first of its machine guns to the U.S. military’s elite military command on Wednesday. The new machine gun is touted as a lightweight new weapon that can bridge the gap between the U.S. military’s current M240 (7.62x51cal) medium machine guns and its Browning M2 (.50cal) heavy machine guns.  Click the video below to watch: The MG 338 was approved along with Sig Sauer’s new .338 Norma Mag Ammunition and a new suppressor system. According to Sig Sauer, the certifications represent the first time in decades that the U.S. military has approved a new machine gun, ammunition and suppressor at the same time. “For the first time in decades the U.S. military certified a new machine gun, ammunition, and suppressor at the same time, bringing new innovation, portability, and increased lethality to our ground forces, with all components coming from one company,” said Sig Sauer President and CEO Ron Cohen. Among its features, the MG 338 also touts a significant weight reduction to the M240, coming in at only 20 pounds. On top of its M240 predecessor, Sig Sauer claims the MG 338 has increased range the .338 ammunition can deliver greater lethality. The MG 338 touts an effective range of 2,000 meters, a distance of over 1.2 miles. The weapon’s proprietary recoil mitigation system, and free-floating barrel are meant to further assist the accuracy of the weapon, while reducing the fatigue a user may experience from heavy and repeated weapon recoil. The new machine gun is also designed with ambidextrous controls, allowing both right-handed and left-handed users to easily operate the weapons system. Further, the machine gun has a quick change barrel, allowing operators to easily remove a damaged or overheated barrel. The machine gun also has a built-in folding stock. The new suppressor system, described by Sig Sauer as the Next Generation Suppressor, “drastically reduces the impact of harmful toxic fumes and signature, making the operator less vulnerable.” Sig Sauer won another U.S. military contract in 2017, to produce the Modular Handgun System. The 10-year, $580 million U.S. Army handgun contract conferred Sig Sauer the right to produce the services’ replacements for its existing Beretta M9 pistols.

Putin's Now Purged The West From The Kremlin

by Tyler Durden Fri, 01/17/2020 - 05:00

Authored by Tom Luongo via Gold, Goats, 'n Guns blog,

It came as the biggest shock of the day on Wednesday. The Russian government resigned. The day before President Vladimir Putin gave his State of the Nation address and outlined a slate of constitutional changes. That speech prompted an overhaul of Russia’s government. Putin’s plan is to devolve some of the President’s overwhelming power to the legislature and the State Council, while beefing up the Constitutional Court’s ability to provide checks on legislation. From TASS:

In Wednesday’s State of the Nation Address, Putin put forward a number of initiatives changing the framework of power structures at all levels, from municipal authorities to the president. The initiatives particularly stipulate that the powers of the legislative and judicial branches, including the Constitutional Court, will be expanded. The president also proposed to expand the role of the Russian State Council. Putin suggested giving the State Duma (the lower house of parliament) the right to approve the appointment of the country’s prime minister, deputy prime ministers and ministers.

The bigger shock was that in response to this Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev dissolved the current government willingly and resigned as Prime Minister. Within hours Putin recommended Federal Tax Service chief, Mikhail Mishustin as Prime Minister. The State Duma approved Putin’s recommendation and Mishustin was sworn in by Putin all within a day. While this came on suddenly it also shouldn’t be a surprise. These changes have been discussed for months leading up to Putin’s speech. And it’s been clear for the past few years that Putin has been engaged in the second phase of his long-term plan to first rebuild and then remake Russia during his time in office. The first phase was rescuing Russia from economic, societal and demographic collapse. It was in serious danger of this when Putin took over from Boris Yeltsin. It meant regaining control over strategic state resources, rebuilding Russia’s economy and defense, stabilizing its population, getting some semblance of political control within the Kremlin and bringing hope back to a country in desperate need of it. Hostile analysts, both domestic and foreign, criticized Putin constantly for his tactics. Russia’s reliance on its base commodities sectors to revive its economy was seen as a structural weakness. But, an honest assessment of the situation begs the question, “How else was Putin going to back Russia away from the edge of that abyss?” These same experts never seem to have an answer. And when those critics were able to answer, since they were people connected to monied interests in the West who Putin stymied from continuing to loot Russia’s natural wealth, their answer was usually to keep doing that. Don’t kid yourself, most of the so-called Russia experts out there are deeply back to Wall St. through one William Browder and his partner-in-crime Mikhail Khordokovsky. Nearly all of them in the U.S. Senate are severely compromised or just garden variety neocons still hell-bent on subjugating Russia to their hegemonic plans. Their voices should be discounted heavily since they are the same criminals actively destroying U.S. and European politics today. In the West these events were spun to suggest Putin is consolidating power. The initial reports were that he would remove the restraint on Presidential service of two consecutive terms. And that this would pave the way to his staying in office after his current term expires in 2024. That, as always when regarding Russia, is the opposite of the truth. Putin’s recommendation is to remove the word “consecutive” from the Constitution making it clear that a President can only ever serve two terms. Moreover, that president will have had to have lived in Russia for the previous 25 years. No one will be allowed to rule Russia like he has after he departs the office. Because Putin understands that the Russian presidency under the current constitution is far too powerful and leaves the country vulnerable to a man who isn’t a patriot being corrupted by that power. There are a number of issues that most commentators and analysts in the West do not understand about Putin. Their insistence on presenting Putin only in the worst possible terms is tired and nonsensical to anyone who spends even a cursory amount of time studying him.

These events of the past couple of days in Russia are the end result of years of work on Putin’s part to purge the Russian government and the Kremlin of what The Saker calls The Atlanticist Fifth Column.

And they have been dug in like ticks in a corrupt bureaucracy that has taken Putin the better part of twenty years to tame. It’s been a long and difficult road that even I only understand the surface details of. But it’s clear that beginning in 2012 or so, Putin began making the shift towards the next phase of Russia’s strategic comeback. And that second phase is about taking a stable Russia and elevating its institutions to a more sustainable model. Once birth rates improved and demographic collapse was averted, the next thing to do was to reform an economy rightly criticized for being too heavily dependent on oil and gas revenues. And that is a much tougher task. It meant getting control over the Russian central bank and the financial sector. Putin was given that opportunity during the downturn in oil prices in 2014. Using the crisis as an opportunity Putin began the decoupling of Russia’s economy from the West. During the early boom years of his Presidency oil revenue strengthened both the Russian state coffers and the so-called oligarchs who Putin was actively fighting for control. He warned the CEO’s of Gazprom, Rosneft and Sberbank that they were too heavily exposed to the U.S. dollar this way in the years leading up to the crash in oil prices in 2014-16. And when the U.S. sanctioned Russia in 2014 over the reunification with Crimea these firms all had to come to Putin for a bailout. Their dollar-denominated debt was swapped out for euro and ruble debt through the Bank of Russia and he instructed the central bank to allow the ruble to fall, to stop defending it. Taking the inflationary hit was dangerous but necessary if Russia was to become a truly independent economic force. Since then it’s been a tug of war with the IMF-trained bureaucracy within the Bank of Russia to set monetary policy in accordance with Russia’s needs not what the international community demanded. That strong Presidency was a huge boon. But, now that the job is mostly done, it can be an albatross. Putin understands that a Russia flush with too much oil money is a Russia ruled by that money and becomes lazy because of that money. Contrary to popular opinion, Putin doesn’t want to see oil prices back near $100 per barrel. Because Russia’s comparative advantage in oil and gas is so high relative to everyone else on the world stage and to other domestic industries that money retards innovation and investment in new technologies and a broadening of the Russian domestic economy.  And this has been Putin’s focus for a while now. Oil and gas are geostrategic assets used to shore up Russia’s position as a regional power, building connections with its new partners while opening up new markets for Russian businesses. But it isn’t the end of the Russian story of the future, rather the beginning. And the slow privatization of those industries is happening, with companies like Gazprom and Rosneft selling off excess treasury shares to raise capital and put a larger share of them into public hands. Again, this is all part of the next stage of Russia’s development and democratizing some of the President’s power has to happen if Russia is going to survive him leaving the stage. Because it is one thing to have a man of uncommon ability and patriotism wielding that power responsibly. It’s another to believe Russia can get another man like Putin to take his place. So, Putin is again showing his foresight and prudence in pushing for these changes now. It shows that he feels comfortable that this new structure will insulate Russia from external threats while strengthening the domestic political scene. Gilbert Doctorow has an excellent early reaction to this dramatic turn by Putin which I encourage everyone to read in full. The subtle point he makes is: To understand what comes next, you have to take into account a vitally important statement which Putin made a few moments before he set out his proposed constitutional reforms. He told his audience that his experience meeting with the leaders of the various Duma parties at regular intervals every few weeks showed that all were deeply patriotic and working for the good of the country. Accordingly, he said that all Duma parties should participate in the formation of the cabinet. And so, we are likely to see in the coming days that candidates for a number of federal ministries in the new, post-Medvedev cabinet will be drawn precisely from parties other than United Russia. In effect, without introducing the word “coalition” into his vocabulary, Vladimir Putin has set the stage for the creation of a grand coalition to succeed the rule of one party, United Russia, over which Dimitri Medvedev was the nominal chairman. The end result of this move to devolve the cabinet appointments to the whole of the Duma is to ensure that a strong President which Putin believes is best for Russia is tempered by a cabinet drawn from the whole of the electorate, including the Prime Minister. That neither opens the door to dysfunctional European parliamentary systems nor closes it from a strong President leading Russia during crisis periods. Once the amendments to the constitution are finalized Putin will put the whole package to a public vote. This is the early stage of this much-needed overhaul of Russia’s constitutional order and the neocons in the West are likely stunned into silence knowing that they can no longer just wait Putin out and sink their hooks into his most likely successor. Sometimes the most important changes occur right under our noses, right out in the open. Contrast that with the skullduggery and open hostility of the political circus in D.C. and you can which direction the two countries are headed.

Be Aware Next Week In Virginia! Signs Point To A 'Dark State Trap' To Demonize The 2nd Amendment & Disarm Americans As 2020 Becomes 'Do Or Die' For Globalists

- A Well-Armed People Will NEVER Be Put Into 'Gulags' To Be 'Re-Educated'

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die January 16, 2020

As talk of Civil War fills the air and the state of Virginia is looked at as potentially America's new 'ground zero', Virginia Democrats learned partially about what they are up against on Monday as Breitbart reports in this story; after thousands of NRA members and supporters showed up in Richmond, Virginia, Democrats withdrew an AR-15 confiscation bill. With the NRA urging members to show up to drown out the voices of those calling for more gun control laws in the state, and their members responding in huge numbers, as NRA-ILA Virginia Director Daniel Spiker made clear, one small victory is not enough in a state that seems dead set in leading the country into globalist tyranny. With gun confiscations threatened by Virginia's Democrats, history provides us with a record that gun confiscations nearly always lead to horrific genocide carried out by 'the state' against their real or perceived political opponents. And with 2020 shaping up to be one for the record books with Democrats sure to riot in the streets and attempt to burn down cities should President Trump be re-elected in November while most certainly, any Democrat victory in 2020 would lead to the full-scale implementation of the globalists tyrannical agenda in America, the destruction of the US Constitution and the 1st and 2nd Amendment's and the full-scale loss of American sovereignty, we pray for President Trump and America at this time of great potential danger all around us. So as we'll explore within this story, with baby-butchering Virginia governor Ralph Northam already declaring a state of emergency to ban guns and other 'weapons' from Virginia's Capitol Square ahead of the gun rights rally next week, more and more signs have been emerging that the globalists/democrats are growing more desperate by the day and will potentially resort to carrying out 'false flag' acts as former US Navy Seal Matt Bracken warns in the 1st video at the bottom of this story. And with Virginia now in the spotlight, the globalists will try to not only demonize the 2nd Amendment and gun right supporters by manufacturing a false flag event to cause outright chaos in America, but might eventually even resort to mass murder as all Communists/totalitarian government's eventually resort to. With unconfirmed reports coming from the AR-15 Forum that FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, had recently signed a purchase agreement with Beijing-based weapon manufacturer Norinco that will deliver into the agency’s rapacious hands 5,000 CQ-A rifles, a clone of the M4A1 carbine used by U.S. military and various law enforcement agencies, are FEMA or any other US government agencies secretly buying sniper rifles from China that can't be traced? We already know that there is a rogue anti-America cell within the US State Department; how many more are there in different US government agencies? We'll explore that AR-15 forum thread later in this story but first, from the Breitbart story.: The Washington Free Beacon reports the presence of thousands of NRA members “appeared to have an impact.” Democrats withdrew a bill aimed at AR-15 confiscation and moderated other gun control proposals. But NRA-ILA Virginia state director Daniel Spiker made clear the changes, though good, were not enough. He said, “While there were some improvements to some of these bills, overall, it’s still bad legislation. Putting in more regulations and making it more onerous on the law-abiding citizens of Virginia is not something we stand for.Richard Cosner, a Chester, Virginia, preacher, was present to oppose new gun controls. He pointed out attempts to legislate gun control serve as a way to usurp the Constitution: “The Constitution is specific; it ‘shall not be infringed.’ If somebody wants to restrict those rights then they need to follow it by altering the Constitution, not by putting in place legislation that is in conflict with the Constitution.” (ANP EMERGENCY FUNDRAISER! Following Susan Duclos' heart attacks and hospitalization, All News Pipeline will need some financial help in the days and weeks ahead. So if you like stories like this, please consider donating to ANP to help keep us in this 'Info-war' for America at a time of systematic censorship and widespread corruption.) While Virginia's Attorney General Mark Herring recently claimed that there was no 'legal force' behind the still-growing 2nd Amendment Sanctuary movement in Virginia, as was perfectly laid out in the US Constitution by America's Founding Fathers, the 2nd Amendment and the United States Constitution are THEMSELVES a 'legal force', a 'force' that guarantees Americans won't ever be sent to Gulags like a bunch of completely insane leftists want to do to Trump supporters and Conservatives, or be powerless against tyranny. Who in their right minds would attempt to 'round up' tens of millions of very, very well-armed and law-abiding Americans and put them in 'Gulags' to 're-educate them' into the 'leftist mindset'? Such people attempting to carry out a mass round-up probably wouldn't last very long in a still-free America. As the Guardian reports in this story, while only 3% of Americans own a collective 133 million weapons with more guns in America than people according to this Washington Post story (saved at archive), an unverified legend states that during the American Revolution, the active forces in the field against the King’s tyranny never amounted to more than 3% of the colonists, thus born the 'Three Percenters'. And with America's Founding Fathers only enshrining into writing our God-given rights to protect ourselves and our families and loved ones when they are being threatened, why would leftists actually cheer the thought of Conservatives and President Trump supporters being thrown into Gulags and 'dragged into the streets and lit on fire' as Susan Duclos had reported in this January 15th ANP story? With Bernie Sanders staffer Kyle Jurek becoming one of the best selling gun salesmen in America after his insane remarks about putting Conservatives into Gulags, remarks cheered on by the dumbed down Bernie voters, as we'd reported in this January 14th ANP story, only the insane would give up their means of defending themselves with leftists calling for violence against people for merely supporting President Trump. And all of those remarks by Jurek have practically confirmed what we all thought when Hillary Clinton suggested throwing Conservatives into 'fun camps' to be 're-educated'. From this new story over at the Burning Platform titled "2020 - Year Of Living Dangerously", we see why things are heating up to the boiling point in Virginia, America and across the world, with a great risk of boiling over. The Trump team is now poised to go on the offensive as this Constitutional crisis intensifies and hurtles towards a violent conclusion. Barr and Durham are busy building a case against the Obama administration and their illegal activities before and after the election. As the election approaches and Durham concludes his investigation, indictments handed down on Clapper, Brennan, Comey or any of the other conspirators would lead to turmoil not seen since the Civil War. No matter the result of the upcoming election, neither side will accept the outcome. This country is irretrievably broken and there will be no compromise or negotiated agreements. With Virginia Governor “Blackface” Northam attempting to overturn the 2nd Amendment and forcefully confiscate lawfully owned firearms from his citizens a modern-day Harper’s Ferry confrontation could be in the offing. There are no viable political solutions to our current dilemmas. It’s just a matter of when and where the conflict goes hot and blood is spilled.

The domestic turmoil and disintegration of societal norms is a big enough risk by itself, but the international conflicts swirling across the globe add a particularly dire dimension to the twelfth year of this Fourth Turning. As we entered 2019 I thought the likely global recession would lead to further international tensions and possible military conflict. The flooding of the entire world with central bank produced liquidity has continued to shroud the deteriorating economic conditions in the U.S, EU, China and Japan. As mentioned within our opening segment, according to still-unconfirmed reports coming from the AR-15 Forum as was also reported within this story at Investment Watch Blog, FEMA had recently signed a purchase agreement with Chinese weapons manufacturer Norinco that would deliver a whole lot of sniper rifles to that agency. While a search of recent government purchase orders found no such orders for FEMA, as we were warned by 'behind the scenes eyes' that if true, the reasons for that could be extremely sinister with the weapons being untraceable, not registered with official government agencies and no way to track them back to US sources. And with the Democrats/globalists under Barack Obama until today bowing to Communist China and China the world's largest exporter of the 'surveillance state', is it really out of the realm of possibility that some rogue current or former employees of some 3-letter government agency might bring in thousands of untraceable sniper weapons to cause mass chaos and havoc in America? With Democrats/globalists and their 'win at all costs' attitude in 2020, we shouldn't put anything past them, even mass murder.

In fact, as mentioned previously, Communists/socialists are very good at that kind of thing, brutally slaughtering hundreds of millions of their own people over the past 100+ years. And with Democrats in Congress now looking exactly like the traitors America's Founding Fathers long ago warned us about, any thought of turning America into a Communist/Socialist nation gives Americans another great reason to never, ever give up their guns nor the 2nd Amendment. A well armed people will NEVER be sent to gulags! So between what's going on now nationally in the US with a very real Constitutional crisis unfolding before us and 'impeachment' finally going to the US Senate, we should all get ourselves prepared for absolutely anything in 2020 with the left pushing further and further towards a political philosophy that has led to the deaths of hundreds of millions. As Susan Duclos had pointed out in this January 16th ANP story titled "Can You Protect And Defend Your Family When SHTF? Part Three In The Survival Series: Prevention And Protection", with leftists pushing America closer and closer to the edge every day, law-abiding Americans best prepare to defend our families and loved ones with leftists hoping to bring America a poltical system that has brought the deaths of a countless number of people globally the past 100+ years. And with the dumbed-down leftists actually laughing about locking up Conservatives in gulags for their political beliefs and now radical leftists advocating the burning of Americans in the streets as Susan Duclos had reported in this January 15th ANP story, with the self-defense and the protection of our friends, families and loved ones on our minds in these days of mass Democratic insanity, we've gone ahead and put together a list of ways to defend ourselves as close by as an internet order and just a one or two day delivery away.

King Northam’s Wall—Afraid of His Subjects!

David L Brockett - January 17, 2020

Under siege would be an understatement

With over 90 percent of his counties rebelling against his draconian gun law proposals and thousands of pissed off Virginia citizens prepared to storm the castle, Gov. Northam is frantically erecting physical barriers to contain the riff-raff. Imperious and lordly, this little tyrant strikes a comedic pose as he struts around the castle walls, daring his subjects to defy him. Watch: Virginia’s “Representatives” Conspire Against The People They Serve Northam has buttressed his capitol police force with city cops and state troopers and he is having barriers erected around the capitol building and statehouse. Streets immediately surrounding Capitol grounds will be closed and there’s going to be additional fencing around the Capitol building. On Monday, there will only be one public entrance at the gate near N 9th Street and Grace Street, where all visitors will have to go through a security checkpoint with metal detectors. Setting a tone of fear and paranoia, he is flapping around like Henny Pen-Pen screeching about the militia, white supremacists, and out of state troublemakers. Only it isn’t the sky that’s falling in Virginia, it’s the Constitutional rights of Old Dominion citizens—and they aren’t having any of it! King Northam has decreed that no weapons will be allowed on the capitol grounds, not even helmets or shields! Does this remind anyone else of the 1775 British army’s march on Lexington and Concord to seize colonial weapons? Didn’t that officially touch off the Revolutionary War? Does the dwarf tyrant really believe law-abiding citizens would try to assassinate him, or fire on the legislature–or is he attempting to touch off a shooting war between his troops and those who refuse to disarm? That would be a colossal mistake. By instilling an “us vs them” attitude among Virginia troopers, Northam appears to be intentionally setting the stage for bloodshed. In an attempt to justify his alarmism, the governor clucked to the media: “We’re seeing threats of armed confrontation and assault on our Capitol!” It appears he is also trying to gin up outrage among the race-baiters. Northam painted the specter of White Nationalists at the gate and swore he would never allow another Charlottesville, as if being a 2ndAmendment advocate meant you were also racist. Like a good neighbor, West Virginia is there Always sympathetic to their cousins, West Virginians have invited as many Virginia counties to join their state as wish to. The West Virginia state government just drew up this bill to officially welcome new territories: “Whereas, Article VI, Section 11 of The Constitution of the State of West Virginia explicitly permits additional territory to be admitted into, and become part of this state, with the consent of the Legislature and of a majority of the qualified voters of the state; and  Whereas, In a spirit of conciliation, the Legislature of West Virginia hereby extends an invitation to our fellow Virginians who wish to do so, to join us in our noble experiment of 156 years of separation from the government at Richmond; and, we extend an invitation to any constituent county or city of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the body politic of the State of West Virginia, under the conditions set forth in our state Constitution, specifically, with the consent of a majority of the voters of such county or city voting upon such proposition; and we hereby covenant that their many grievances shall be addressed, and, we further covenant with them that their firearms rights shall be protected to the fullest extent possible under our Federal and State Constitution.” Virgexit? King Northam is powerless! Ouch! Here is what would have to happen for the above to be official. The West Virginia legislature would have to approve the bill and the governor sign it into law. Then the Virginia counties who wished to would have to vote on leaving. Those counties which voted to leave would then have to be voted on by the good people of West Virginia to be accepted. Then it’s a done deal. All Northam and his liberal toadies could do about it is watch that revenue and representation in Washington walk away. Let’s play what-if. What if Virginia counties make their move? Will that trigger further rebellion across the US? According to the Annexation agreement of 1845 when Texas joined the Union, it retains the right to further divide into a total of five states. As the Texas border region turns dark blue, many Texans in more rural areas fear the state will turn into another California. There are many other states like Colorado, and California that have regions unhappy with their state’s politics. Will Northam go down in history as the man that started a nation-wide rebellion against liberal government? Oh God! Even the clergy have abandoned him. Jerry Falwell Jr. made this statement: “I’m pretty sure I’m going to call for civil disobedience if the Democrats go through with this (gun control legislation).” Uh oh! The extremely popular Falwell has seen a lot of governors come and go, and he knows when he’s looking at a bad one. Who will administer the last rites to Humpty Dumpty when he falls from the castle wall?

SHERIFF’S DEPUTY VOWS TO DEFY ‘UNCONSTITUTIONAL’ GUN CONTROL

Jan 17, 2020U.S.

Tripp Kester, a sheriff’s deputy in North Carolina’s Davidson County, channeled the civic sentiment of many American patriots this week at a meeting of his county’s board of commissioners, which voted unanimously to adopt Second Amendment “sanctuary county” status. In neighboring Virginia, Democrat lawmakers are touting sweeping gun control proposals that could create a constitutional crisis. The Democrat-controlled Virginia Senate passed three gun control bills Thursday which ban multiple gun purchases per month, mandate background checks for private gun sales, and compel local government gun bans for public events. Though Democrats decided not to press forward with a proposed assault rifle transfer ban, Democrat governor Ralph Northam issued an executive order banning guns at a Jan. 20 Second Amendment rally in Richmond and is expected to sign the new Senate gun control bills into law if they pass the Democrat-controlled General Assembly. The Virginia Democrats’ increasingly radicalized plans leave patriots scrambling for solutions. That patriotic movement has clearly spread to North Carolina, where Democrat Roy Cooper reigns as governor.

“The Constitution needs no explanation. It’s been enforced for several hundred years now. It’s easy to understand. It says what it means. It means what it says,” Tripp Kester stated in his remarks at the meeting in Davidson County, North Carolina on Tuesday.

Kester’s speech citing the Declaration of Independence’s promise of inalienable rights in convincing the Board to join with five nearby “sister counties” is inspiring patriots online. Watch it here:

REVEALED: US military lost contact with drones overhead during Iranian ballistic missile strike on Iraqi bases after fire severed command link

US Army was flying seven drones over Iraq during Iran's strike on January 8

One missile struck fiber optic line that linked pilots to satellite antennas

Soldiers scrambled to lay new fiber after the missile attack ended

All drones landed safely after the command link was restored

By Afp Published: 00:11 EST, 16 January 2020 | Updated: 02:00 EST, 16 January 2020

Moments after volleys of Iranian missiles began to batter Iraq's Ain al-Asad airbase, US soldiers at the desert facility lost contact with their ultra-powerful - and expensive - eyes in the sky. At the time the attack was launched at 1.35am on January 8, the US Army was flying seven unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) over Iraq to monitor bases where US-led coalition forces are deployed. They included MQ-1C Gray Eagles, advanced surveillance drones that can fly for as long as 27 hours and carry a payload of up to four Hellfire missiles. 'We thought it may lead to a ground assault, so we kept the aircraft up,' said one of the pilots, 26-year-old Staff Sergeant Costin Herwig. Herwig was flying a Gray Eagle when the first Iranian missile struck the base, retaliation for the January 3 killing of top Iranian general Qasem Soleimani in a US drone strike in Baghdad. Most of the other 1,500 US soldiers had been tucked away in bunkers for two hours, after advance warning from superiors. But 14 pilots had stayed in dark containers-turned-cockpits to remotely fly the 'birds' and monitor essential feeds from their high-powered cameras. The first missile blasted dust into their shelter but the pilots stayed put, Herwig told AFP during a press tour of the base organized by the coalition. The next rounds came closer and closer, and the light-haired soldier recalled that he had 'accepted fate'. 'We thought we were basically done,' he said. But the real crisis was yet to come. The volleys of missiles, which soldiers said lasted about three hours, slammed into sleeping quarters directly adjacent to the pilots' operations rooms. 'No more than a minute after the last round hit, I was heading over to the bunkers on the far back side and saw the fire was burning all through our fiber lines,' said First Sergeant Wesley Kilpatrick. Those lines link the virtual cockpits to antennas then satellites that send signals to the Gray Eagles and pull the cameras' feeds back onto the screens at Ain al-Asad. 'With the fiber lines burnt, there was no control,' said Kilpatrick. 'It's a pretty big deal, because it's so expensive and there's a lot of stuff on them that we don't want other people to have or the enemy to get,' said Herwig. A single Gray Eagle costs around $7 million, according to 2019 army budget estimates. They have been used in Iraq since at least 2017 by the coalition to help fight the Islamic State jihadist group. The coalition is required to get a green light from the Iraqi government to fly drones and planes, but those permissions had expired several days before the Iran attacks. The US army had kept the drones in the air anyway, a senior American defense official told reporters, after months of rocket attacks on Iraqi bases where their forces are based. As the bombs crashed closer on January 8 and with the drones unaccounted for, the pilots finally clambered into bunkers. But as soon as the blasts stopped, they rushed back out, now facing a race against time to get their signals up and running so they could find - and land - the Gray Eagles. As dawn started to break, soldiers scrambled to replace 500 yards of melted fiber cables and reprogrammed satellites so they could reconnect to the UAVs. 'The airfield was shut down so we had to land without talking to anybody. We didn't know where any (other) aircraft was. That part was pretty stressful,' said Herwig. The priority was one Grey Eagle that had been scheduled to land just as the missile attack began, and which stayed flying throughout until it was worryingly low on fuel. The pilots worked for hours to land each drone one by one, their adrenaline pumping even as other soldiers were recovering, showering and assessing the damage. At around 9am, the final drone was brought down to earth. 'We landed all our own birds back on site,' said Kilpatrick, smiling in relief and pride. 'It was quite a feat.'

7 Major Earth Changes That Are Happening Right Now That Everyone Needs To Know About

January 14, 2020 by Michael Snyder

There has never been a time in modern human history when our planet has been changing as rapidly as it is changing right now. The sun is behaving very strangely, freakishly cold weather is breaking out all over the world, ocean temperatures continue to rise, volcanoes all over the globe are shooting ash miles into the air, Australia is experiencing the worst wildfires that they have ever seen, and the north magnetic pole has been moving at a pace that is deeply alarming scientists. Could it be possible that all of this bizarre activity is leading up to some sort of a crescendo? Sadly, most people don’t even realize what is happening, and that is because the mainstream media only emphasizes stories that fit with the particular narratives that they are currently pushing. But it has gotten to the point where nobody can deny that really weird things are happening. The following are 7 major earth changes that are happening right now that everyone needs to know about…

#1 According to NASA, solar activity has dropped to the lowest level in 200 years. The following comes from the official NASA website… The forecast for the next solar cycle says it will be the weakest of the last 200 years. The maximum of this next cycle – measured in terms of sunspot number, a standard measure of solar activity level – could be 30 to 50% lower than the most recent one. The results show that the next cycle will start in 2020 and reach its maximum in 2025. Of course NASA insists that everything will be just fine, but others are wondering if this lack of solar activity could potentially spawn another “Little Ice Age”… When solar activity gets really low, it can have the effect of a “mini ice age.” The period between 1645 and 1715 was marked by a prolonged sunspot minimum, and this corresponded to a downturn in temperatures in Europe and North America. Named after astronomers Edward Maunder and his wife Annie Russell Maunder, this period became known as the Maunder Minimum. It is also known as “The Little Ice Age.”

#2 When solar activity gets very low, it has traditionally meant very cold and very snowy winters, and right now we are seeing snow in places that are extremely unusual… The Egyptian capital, Cairo, was also turned white at the start of the month, despite the city not having snow in 112 years, and experiencing less than an inch of rain each year. Many parts of Greece were covered in snow in early January, with low temperatures and strong frost. The cold front named ‘Hephaestion’, after an Ancient Greek army general, thrashed the Greek landscape, bringing rain, sleet and ice in the east.

#3 Meanwhile, the oceans of the world just keep getting hotter and hotter. In fact, ocean temperatures off the California coast have been setting new all-time record highs. It is odd that this is taking place at a time of such low solar activity, but according to NBC News this is definitely happening… The world’s oceans hit their warmest level in recorded history in 2019, according to a study published Monday that provides more evidence that Earth is warming at an accelerated pace. The analysis, which also found that ocean temperatures in the last decade have been the warmest on record, shows the impact of human-caused warming on the planet’s oceans and suggests that sea-level rise, ocean acidification and extreme weather events could worsen as the oceans continue to absorb so much heat.

#4 There have always been wildfires, but we have never seen anything like this. During the summer, countless catastrophic fires burned millions upon millions of acres in the Amazon rainforest, and this winter Australia’s fires have actually been a total of 46 percent larger than the fires that we witnessed in the Amazon. Australia has never seen anything like this before, and according to NASA the smoke from these fires will completely circle the Earth… Once was bad enough, but smoke from Australia’s devastating bushfires is set to return to the country to complete a round-the-world trip that has seen it impact on air quality as far away as South America. By Jan. 8, the smoke had made its way halfway around the world and will make at least one full circuit, according to scientists at NASA, citing satellite tracking data. New Zealand experienced severe air quality issues, while hazy skies and colorful sunsets and sunrises were seen in parts of Chile and Argentina.

#5 During the first half of 2020, volcanoes all over the world have been roaring to life and have been shooting giant clouds of hot ash miles into the sky. For example, in the Philippines the Taal volcano shot ash nine miles into the air on Sunday, it has also been shooting scorching hot lava half a mile into the air, and the ground around the volcano is starting to crack wide open. But even after all the devastation that we have already seen, authorities are warning that it could “re-explode at any moment”… The gray ash is knee-deep. It covers the homes, the bloated cadavers of cows and horses, their limbs protruding at unnatural angles in the shadow of a sulking volcano that could re-explode at any moment. “My home is now gone,” said Melvin Mendoza, 39, a boatman who returned on Tuesday to Taal, the volcanic island in the middle of a freshwater lake just 40 miles south of Manila, which erupted on Sunday like an atomic bomb mushroom cloud. Let us hope that this volcanic activity does not spread throughout that general area, because the largest super volcano caldera in the entire world has been discovered not too far from the Philippines… A team including members from GNS Science have identified an ancient mega-volcano that could have the largest known caldera on Earth. The 150km (93.2 miles) wide feature is on the crest of Benham Rise, an oceanic plateau off the Philippines coast. In comparison, the caldera at Taupō is about 35km (21.8 miles) wide, and that at Yellowstone about 60km (37.3 miles).

#6 All of this is taking place while the north magnetic pole is moving toward Russia at a very rapid pace. The following comes from CNN… The north magnetic pole has been slowly moving across the Canadian Arctic toward Russia since 1831, but its swift pace toward Siberia in recent years at a rate of around 34 miles per year has forced scientists to update the World Magnetic Model — used by civilian navigation systems, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and US and British militaries — a year ahead of schedule.

#7 On top of everything else, the Earth’s magnetic field has been steadily weakening over time, and this has some experts extremely concerned… In a forum on Quora, science fiction writer and journalist C Stuart Hardwick revealed that satellite data, such as those collected by the European Space Agency’s SWARM mission, revealed that the magnetic field has been weakening for about 5 percent each century. He noted that currently, the strength of the magnetic field is at 29.5 microteslas, which is 14 percent weaker than its previous state three centuries ago. According to Hardwick, the SWARM satellites detected increased deterioration within regions of the magnetic field over North America. He said these regions weakened by about 3.5 percent over the span of just three years. Without our magnetic field, life on Earth could not exist for long. And it doesn’t have to disappear completely to be a massive problem. If it simply gets weak enough, dwelling on the surface is going to become exceedingly difficult. As I keep warning, our planet is becoming increasing unstable, and what we have experienced so far is just the beginning. The demands of life can often cause us to focus on things that don’t really matter. Hopefully we can get more people to wake up while there is still time, because the clock is ticking for humanity and for our planet as a whole.

The Taal Volcano eruption in the Philippines on Sunday blasted ash plumes 9 miles into the air, amazing new satellite imagery reveals. The volcano's eruption, which had not happened in 40 years, caused travel disruptions and extreme weather events in and around its location, south of the capital city of Manila, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Almost 600 quakes of all magnitudes up to a 6.5 struck Puerto Rico in the last 7 days with 1,500 since Dec 28th 2019: Thousands still sleeping outside: Puerto Rico still recovering from Hurricane Maria

Map USGS. Almost 600 quakes of all magnitudes up to a 6.5 have struck Puerto Rico in the last 7 days and a further 1,500 since Dec 28th 2019. Some in Puerto Rico are beginning to fear the ground will never stop shaking. The island has been pummeled by hundreds of earthquakes in recent weeks, including Saturday’s 5.9 magnitude temblor, where there were reports of landslides in the town of Peñuelas along the southern coast, rattling residents already on edge from last Tuesday’s massive 6.4 magnitude quake. That was the largest to strike the island in more than a century causing hundreds of structures to crumble, forcing thousands from their homes and leaving millions without power.

Puerto Rico’s public utility, PREPA, tweeted some welcome news Monday: that nearly all of the homes and businesses it serves have had electric power restored. Still, it is urging customers to conserve energy. Reporting from the port city of Ponce, NPR’s Adrian Florido said the Costa Sur Plant, which produces more than 40% of Puerto Rico’s electricity, was badly damaged in last week’s quake. It remains offline indefinitely. He also reports many residents are still reeling from the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria, a deadly Category 4 storm that battered the island in September 2017. The storm exposed the fact that buildings across the island were not up to code. The series of earthquakes are only amplifying fears that structures have been further weakened. wmfe.org 

Thousands still sleeping outside Puerto Rico's recovery following the devastating Hurricane Maria was slow and uneven. And then last week, the largest earthquake to hit the island in a century made things worse. Thousands of people in Puerto Rico are sleeping outdoors nearly a week after a 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck the island. The fear of aftershocks as people in tents or under tarps. NPR's Adrian Florido reports from Puerto Rico's southern coast. npr.org Map USGS

According to USGS, more than 4,000 small to mid-sized quakes have rattled the tiny island of Purto Rico since January the 1st 2019. Full Story

2000 to 2018 recorded a staggering 2,697 more major quakes than in the same period 1900 to 1918 but 2017 records the lowest amount this century

Graph Gary Walton/ Stats USGS

It is not the expected narrative we have come to expect but for the second year running major quakes (mag 6 or greater) are down on the previous year with 2017 recording the lowest total this century and the lowest total since the 1980's. With 110 recorded major quakes and a mag 6.3 thought to have been caused by a nuclear test in North Korea bringing the yearly total to 111 that figure is 50 down on this century's average of 161. The biggest quake was the historical magnitude 8.2 struck the west coast of Mexico which was the biggest Mexican earthquake in 100 years, however, that quake which struck in September was the only mag 8+ recorded this year. Apart from the mag 8.2 above, only 6 more quakes in the whole year managed mag 7+ with a 7.9 which struck Papua New Guinea in January being the largest. Another massive mag 7.1 struck Mexico three weeks after the mag 8.2 struck in September. 2017 saw Yellowstone becoming a concern as an ongoing earthquake swarm at Yellowstone volcano was one of the biggest ever recorded, with over 2,400 tremors since it began in June.

As of August 30, 2,357 earthquakes had been recorded. The most powerful in recent was magnitude 3.3; it took place on August 21, The most powerful in the current swarm was a magnitude 4.4, which was recorded on June 15. Septembers mag 5.3 is by far the biggest. Graph Gary Walton stats USGS

If the major quakes have been down a little over recent years the overall big picture is much different of course, between the years 1900 to 1918 just 107 major quakes were recorded (mag 6 or higher) that 17 year period produced 4 major quakes less than 2017 produced in just one year, see below. USGS

In the same period, 2000 to 2018; 2,804 major quakes were recorded, a staggering 2,697 more than 1900 to 1919. USGS The increase in major quakes since 1900 is staggering, see below. USGS

CHOO-NAMI Moment huge wave smashes train window as 161 flood alerts issued across Britain before -4C plunge tomorrow

Alex Matthews 17 Jan 2020, 11:39Updated: 17 Jan 2020, 16:07

PASSENGERS were left injured when a huge wave smashed a train window as Britain got battered by the tail end of Storm Brendan. The water crashed through the service from Exeter to Paignton in Devon, while 161 flood alerts were issued across the country. Flooding is not all that’s in store with forecasters warning of a temperature plunge to -4C over the weekend. But today is expected to reach highs of 11C in certain parts of the country while most people will enjoy mild conditions of 10C. Great Western Railway said its 10.57 service from Exeter was "damaged by sea debris". Passenger Gill Garratt said: “Huge wave smashes into moving train and breaks windows passing through Dawlish, several passengers injured. “Two trains stuck and ours abandoned at Newton Abbot.' Huge wave smashes into moving train and breaks windows passing through Dawlish, several passengers injured. Passenger Phil Garratt

After the train terminated at Newton Abbot, customers were transferred to a Cross Country service.

Paramedics were called to Dawlish Railway Station at about 12pm and treated one person for a minor injury. A spokeswoman for South Western Ambulance Service said: "The caller reported to us that someone was injured after a wave hit a train. "Our crew treated one patient at the scene for a minor injury. The patient did not need to be taken to hospital." FLOOD WARNINGS Brits have been warned of rivers bursting their banks with alerts in Kent, Devon, West London and as far North as the Lake District.

But Met Office meteorologist Luke Miall said temperatures today will not be as chilly as recent days.

He said: “We have another low pressure storm coming in bringing strong winds and heavy rain. Rain is likely to be heaviest in the west of the country. “Going into the weekend there is a big area of high pressure, so most places in the country will see a nice day but also some frost, which we haven't seen so far this winter. It will be mostly sunny skies although cold and clear.”

We have another low pressure storm coming in bringing strong winds and heavy rain. Rain is likely to be heaviest in the west of the country. Luke Miall BRENDAN'S BITE Parts of the UK are dealing with the fallout from Storm Brendan that sparked travel chaos on air, land and sea. In Christchurch, Dorset, high tides flooded car parks by the quay, with the same happening in nearby Mudeford. Inland, the River Avon burst its bank in places on Wednesday morning, spilling on to roads near Chippenham, Wiltshire, and leaving some vehicles stranded. Clear-up work has continued in Slough, Berkshire, after high winds blew a roof off a building on to the High Street on Tuesday. Taxi driver Haris Baig, 30, said he had to slam on his brakes as a large section of roof crashed in front of him, saying: "It was a disaster. It was a miracle no one was killed." A ten storey scaffolding tower also fell from a block of flats in Orpington, Kent, while an uprooted tree crushed a Kia Sorento at Dartford train station. On Tuesday, a car was pictured in the sea during rising tides in Starr Gate near Blackpool, Lancashire, but was later recovered by the Coastguard.

Iranian security forces purportedly fire live ammunition to disperse protesters despite Trump's warning

By Edmund DeMarche | Fox News

Videos emerged online Monday that purportedly show Iranian police and security forces firing live ammunition to disperse demonstrators protesting against the Islamic Republic after the country mistakenly downed a Ukrainian airline plane shortly after takeoff from Tehran. There was no immediate report in Iranian state-run media on the incident near Azadi, or Freedom, Square in Tehran, but, if true, could be seen as an act of defiance against President Trump who warned the regime against the use of deadly force. Trump late Sunday tweeted in Farsi that a combination of protests and sanctions have "choked off" Iran and said Tehran will be forced to the negotiation table. STEVE HILTON GOES OFF ON 'ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICANS' Trump insisted that he "couldn’t care less" if the regime negotiates, but he appeared to lay down non-negotiable issues that included the development of nuclear weapons and the use of deadly force against protesters. "Don't kill your protesters," he tweeted. Videos were sent to the New York-based Center for Human Rights in Iran and later verified by The Associated Press. They show a crowd of demonstrators fleeing as a tear gas canister landed among them. People cough and sputter while trying to escape the fumes, with one woman calling out in Farsi: “They fired tear gas at people! Azadi Square. Death to the dictator!” Another video shows a woman being carried away in the aftermath as a blood trail can be seen on the ground. Those around her cry out that she has been shot by live ammunition in the leg. “Oh my God, she’s bleeding nonstop!” one person shouts. Another shouts: “Bandage it!” Photos and video after the incident show pools of blood on the sidewalk. Hossein Rahimi, the head of the Tehran police, said in a statement seen by Reuters that police "absolutely did not shoot" due to orders to show restraint. US TROOPS PRAISE GENERAL'S KILLING, COTTON SAYS The tweet in Farsi appears to be an attempt by Trump to speak directly to the Iranian people. Tehran has experienced upheaval after the missile strike on a Ukrainian airline flight out of the country's capital that the country called a mistake. Still, the mishap was seen as an international display of military ineptitude. Many of the country’s protesters chanted "death to the Dictator," referring to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Another group near a university in Tehran chanted, “They are lying that our enemy is America, our enemy is right here," Reuters reported

Trump, who says he is not interested in ousting the Iranian regime, reinstated economic sanctions on Iran after withdrawing from the nuke deal. He said it gave Tehran too many economic benefits without doing enough to prevent Iran from eventually developing a nuclear weapon. Brig. Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, the head of the Revolutionary Guard's aerospace division, said his unit accepts "full responsibility.” Iranian officials had earlier denied that it had shot down the jet. Gen. Hossein Salami, commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, apologized, according to CBS News, citing Iran's state TV.  “I swear to almighty God that I wished I were in that plane and had crashed with them and had burned, and had not witnessed this tragic incident,” Salami said. Alam Saleh, an Iran expert, told the Wall Street Journal that the state’s legitimacy has been “severely challenged by the people.Trump, hours earlier, again warned Tehran not to kill protesters, saying, “Thousands have already been killed or imprisoned by you, and the World is watching. More importantly, the USA is watching."

Karen Pierce, British ambassador to the United Nations, echoed Trump's message to Iran.

Report: Iran’s Only Female Olympic Medalist Defects to the Netherlands

Iran’s sole female Olympic medalist has defected from her country and reportedly fled to the Netherlands, according to a post on her Instagram account Saturday. Taekwondo athlete Kimia Alizadeh stated that her decision was difficult but something she had to do, according to the AP. Alizadeh also said Iranian officials forced her to wear the hijab headscarf and accused them of sexism and mistreatment. She continued: I am one of the millions of oppressed women in Iran who have been playing with me for years. They took me wherever they wanted. Whatever they said I wore. Every sentence they ordered I repeated. Whenever they saw fit, they exploited me. They put my medals on the obligatory veil and attributed it to their management and tact. My troubled spirit does not fit into your dirty economic channels and tight political lobbies. I have no other wish except for Taekwondo, security and a happy and healthy life. She concluded by stating that she would “remain a daughter of Iran wherever I am.” Initially, news outlets reported that Alizadeh was missing, which caused Iranian politician Abdolkarim Hosseinzadeh to blame “incompetent officials” for allowing the Islamic Republic’s “human capital to flee,” according to the BBC. In a statement, U.S. State Department spokesperson Morgan Ortagus praised Alizadeh’s decision and said it showed she had “rejected the regime’s oppression of women.”Iran will continue to lose more strong women unless it learns to empower and support them,” Ortagus commented. In recent years, several Iranian athletes also left the country because they felt pressured by the government, according to the AP. “In September, Saeed Mollaei, an Iranian judoka, left the country for Germany. He said Iranian officials had forced him to not compete with Israeli judoka,” the report said. Alizadeh won a bronze medal during the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro and is reportedly training to compete in the 2020 Summer Olympics scheduled to take place in Tokyo, Japan. However, she will not do so under the Iranian flag.

Canadian PM Trudeau Tells Iran Crash Vigil He Will Pursue Justice

Sunday, 12 January 2020 06:18 PM

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, his voice sometimes breaking, on Sunday told a vigil for some of those killed in an Iranian plane disaster that he would "pursue justice and accountability" for what happened. Iran says it mistakenly shot down a Ukrainian airliner on Wednesday, killing 176 people. At least 57 Canadians died, most of them of Iranian descent, in one of the biggest single losses of life Canada has suffered in 40 years. "You may feel unbearably lonely, but you are not alone. Your entire country stands with you, tonight, tomorrow, and in all the years to come," Trudeau told a crowd of 1,700 in a basketball gymnasium in Edmonton, Alberta, home to 13 of the victims. Most had direct links to the University of Alberta. As Trudeau spoke, young children could be heard in the audience, and boxes of tissues were passed among those present. Black-rimmed photos of the dead stood on the stage, where mourners had placed rose petals, candles and plates of dates. "This tragedy should have never occurred, and I want to assure you that you have my full support during this extraordinarily difficult time ... you give us purpose to pursue justice and accountability for you," said Trudeau, who has demanded Canada take part in the crash probe. "We will not rest until there are answers." Family and friends wept and hugged before the vigil started. "Still I'm in shock, still I can't believe it," said Vahid Rezania, a friend of engineering professor Pedram Mousavi, who was killed. "I am always thinking, 'He is going to come. This hasn't happened'. It is very hard to accept." Alberta Premier Jason Kenney, a prominent political Trudeau foe, lamented an "epic demonstration of human folly" and told the vigil he had confidence the prime minister would give his all to find out what happened. Edmonton's Iranian community is collecting funds to pay funeral and other expenses for the victims' families. Earlier in the day about 2,000 people packed into a Toronto university hall, voicing grief and rage. "There is no justice in this world," said Masoud Niknam, mourning his brother Farhad, a dentist and married father of two children. "I don't believe in anything anymore. We will have a hole in our hearts forever and that cannot be filled with anything." The memorials follow several days of grief in Canada, including candlelight vigils in many cities.

The elite narrative on Iran brushes aside the fury of the Iranian people

By Post Editorial Board January 12, 2020 | 8:07pm

In case you missed it, Tehran’s admission that it shot down that civilian Ukrainian plane triggered massive anti-regime protests, complete with fresh denunciations of the late Gen. Qassem Soleimani. Plus, Iran’s only female Olympic medalist just defected, denouncing the regime for its brutal oppression of women. And you might well have missed either story — because much of the US media is downplaying this news, simply because it doesn’t fit their pre-existing narratives. It’s not just Trump Derangement Syndrome, but part of the outlook of much of the Western elite, which tends to assume that the West’s past sins are the root of all the world’s evils — and that any anti-Western regime, however oppressive, still has a fundamental legitimacy, and popularity. Thus, the blatant glossing over, amid all the fallout from the droning of Qassem Soleimani, of the unpopularity of the Iranian regime as well as the perils it poses to its neighbors and the world. A vast wave of “news analysis,” commentary and even straight reporting suggests that President Trump is to blame not just for Iran’s downing of that plane, but even for the dozens of trampling deaths at Soleimani’s funeral. That’s insane: No matter what the context, both were the result of horrible screw-ups by Iranian officials.   Same for the absurd media treatment of public reactions in Tehran and other Iranian cities after the Soleimani killing — taking the anti-US demonstrations at face value as real signs of public anger, and thus supposedly proof that Trump had rallied Iranians around the government. In fact, they closely resembled the rent-a-mob “fury” the regime has staged for decades. Such anti-Trump analyses also conveniently ignored the spontaneous celebrations that broke out in Tehran and elsewhere as soon as word broke of Soleimani’s deathgenuine public anger at the Iranian government, which also surfaced when the regime admitted the obvious, that Iran’s own “defenses” had shot down the Ukrainian plane. Because the regime and its supporters have all the guns, we don’t pretend that the huge discontent (also seen in months of massive demonstrations late in 2019) makes it sensible for Washington to put all, or many of, its Iran-policy chips on “regime change.” But it’s even more foolish to act as if that anger doesn’t exist, because it greatly limits the options of Iran’s leaders — and means that, for just one example, killing Soleimani was far less risky that Trump’s critics pretend. How broad is this anger — and how extensive the regime’s efforts to conceal it from the world? Consider the letter the Olympian, 21-year-old Kimia Alizadeh posted on Instagram on Saturday to explain her flight to the West, calling herself “one of the millions of oppressed women in Iran who [Iran’s rulers] have been playing with for years.” “They took me wherever they wanted. I wore whatever they said. Every sentence they ordered me to say, I repeated. Whenever they saw fit, they exploited me,” she wrote.  ”I wasn’t important to them. None of us mattered to them, we were tools.” She “didn’t want to sit at the table of hypocrisy, lies, injustice and flattery” any longer, she wrote, nor remain complicit with the regime’s “corruption and lies.” And: “My troubled spirit does not fit with your dirty economic ties and tight political lobbies.” Apologists for the Obama nuclear deal don’t want to think about this reality, because it begins to expose how unreal the deal’s assumptions always were. They also don’t want to talk about how the hundreds of billions of dollars the deal meant for Tehran went for military adventurism in Syria and Iraq as well as Lebanon, Gaza and Yemen — not to make Iran a better place. That’s another common theme for Iranian protesters — and more proof that the deal didn’t make the world safer. “How Trump brought us to the brink of war” is the headline for one major piece still up on The New York Times site — a story that sticks to the delusion-ridden elite understanding of Iran’s relations with its own people, including the refusal to recognize that Iran’s been quietly, carefully at war with America ever since the revolution. As we say, regime change can’t be the center of US policy on Iran. But that policy is still at its wisest when it sides with the Iranian people — and not with their despised rulers.

Supreme Court Allows Muslims to Build Mosque on Temple Mount

By David Sidman January 13, 2020 , 10:08 am

I will bring them to My sacred mount And let them rejoice in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices Shall be welcome on My mizbayach; For My House shall be called A house of prayer for all peoples.” Isaiah 56:7 (The Israel Bible™)

As if the massive Al-Aksa Mosque wasn’t enough, Israel’s Supreme Court has rejected a petition by the Regavim movement to prevent the construction of a mosque at the Gate of Mercy on the Temple Mount reports 0404. The court claimed that they “don’t get involved” in these types of disputes unless it is regarding “extreme circumstances”. This is not the first time that the Muslim Waqf has illegally built structures at the expense of ancient relics on the Temple Mount that they eventually converted into mosques. In the past, the Waqf has done the same type of thing at Solomon’s Stables as well and the Huldah Gates. The Regavim movement appealed to the Supreme Court stressing that the state itself allowed this to happen despite the fact that “the Waqf Council as well as Hamas operatives illegally broke into the compound and operated hostile activities” from there and asked for a court order to close the compound but the state didn’t enact any such measure. Regavim responded to the decision saying: “Regarding basic laws of human dignity, the Supreme Court has nullified laws passed by the legislative branch. They have nullified the law of ‘Welcoming Committees’ which destroyed flourishing Jewish towns because they would not allow any sort of discrimination in Israel. But when there is discrimination of human dignity on a daily basis against Jews on the Temple Mount, that’s fine as far as they’re concerned. This time, the Supreme Court has decided not to be activists, has abandoned the Jewish right to worship in their holiest place.”

Jersey City shooters had massive bomb that could have killed people 500 yards away, feds say

Updated Jan 13, 2020;Posted Jan 13, 2020

By Joe Atmonavage | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com and Blake Nelson | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

The man and woman who killed four people in Jersey City last month in a hate-filled assault on a kosher market had broader plans to sow violence and fear in New Jersey’s Jewish community and harbored hatred toward police, authorities said Monday. An explosive device that had the capacity to kill or injure people up to 500 yards away was found in van of the suspects, authorities said. David Anderson, 47, and Francine Graham, 50, prepared for months before carrying out the attack, which included the killing of a Jersey City police detective on Dec. 10 followed by a rampage at a kosher grocery store that took the lives of three civilians, authorities said. Anderson and Graham were killed in a shootout with police at the Jersey City market. Fueled by a radical ideology loosely affiliated with the Black Hebrew Israelites, the pair purchased a cache of weapons and trained to use them in Ohio, authorities said. Before the Jersey City attack, they researched another attack on a Jewish community center in Bayonne, officials said. State and federal authorities disclosed new details of their ongoing investigation Monday, one month after the horrific spree of violence, saying that they are confident Anderson and Graham were motivated by hatred of Jews and law enforcement. U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito described the Jersey City attacks as “profoundly un-American” and a “senseless, evil and cowardly act,” but said the broader plan was thwarted. “We know now that they planned greater acts of mayhem on both communities,” he said. Video from inside the kosher supermarket captured Anderson saying: “They stole our heritage, they stole our birthright, and they hired these guys to stop us,” Carpenito said. Authorities also provided more information on what happened at the Bayview Cemetery where Jersey City detective Joseph Seals was killed shortly before the attack on the grocery story. Seals, who had gone to the Bayview Cemetery to meet with a man whose vehicle had been impounded in an unrelated matter, apparently had a chance encounter with Anderson and Graham.  “He was just there doing his job,” Carpenito said Monday. Authorities said they aren’t sure what prompted the interaction, but Carpenito said a notice had been issued for officers to be on the lookout for a U-Haul van, like the one Anderson and Graham had rented. He said investigators have speculated that is why Seals approached the pair. Carpenito said the detective’s interaction with Anderson and Graham threw them off of their “broader plan” of potentially more violence. An explosive device found in the U-Haul van Anderson and Graham had rented could have killed or injured people up to five football fields, or 500 yards, away, said FBI special agent in charge Greg Ehrie. The two also had enough materials to construct a second deadly explosive device, but Ehrie said it may never be known what they intended. Surveillance video showed Anderson and Graham, both wearing tactical gear and armed with a total of five firearms, arrive outside of the kosher grocery store in Jersey City’s Greenville neighborhood after they had killed Seals in the cemetery, authorities said. The video shows them shooting as they moved into the store. Inside, the two killed Mindel Ferencz, 33, who owned the store, Moshe Deutsch, 24, of Brooklyn and Miguel Douglas Rodriguez, 47, who worked at the store. Authorities said they recovered five guns inside the store, including a “possibly self-manufactured” AR-15-style weapon believed to be used by Anderson and a Mossberg 12-gauge shotgun that Graham was carrying.  Investigators also found at least two handwritten notes in the Anderson’s pockets. One note read: “FBIs war on black America 35:45,” referencing the title of a 1990 documentary and a moment in the film, in which Fred Hampton, the Black Panther leader, describes law enforcement officers as “fascist pig cops.” The other note had the phone number of a Keyport man who was charged with illegally possessing 12 firearms after FBI agents interviewed him a few days after the attack. In the U-Haul van, authorities found a pipe bomb and a note that read: “I do this because my creator makes me do this and I hate who he hates,” law enforcement sources told the New York Post, and later confirmed by others close to the investigation. Authorities confirmed Monday that Anderson and Graham were suspects in two other incidents leading up to the deadly Jersey City attack. A week before, on Dec. 3, two shots were fired at a vehicle driven by a person clearly identified as of the Jewish faith, Carpenito said, on Route 1 and 9 near Newark and Elizabeth. The rear window was shot out and no one was injured. Investigators determined Graham’s phone was in the area at the time of the shooting, and the ballistics matched a gun linked to the pair, authorities said. Days later, on Dec. 7, authorities said Anderson and Graham killed Michael Rumberger, a Bayonne taxi driver by bludgeoning him and then shooting him in the head. They left Rumberger’s body in the trunk of the Lincoln Town Car he was driving. Officials said Monday that Rumberger’s blood was found on a bible that belonged to the attackers and that his DNA was on their clothes and at least one weapon. Carpenito said he could not say if Rumberger was targeted, but he said Anderson and Graham Googled the meaning of the surname “Rumberger” after killing the 34-year-old. Ehrie, the FBI agent, said Anderson and Graham were not on the radar of law enforcement before the Jersey City shooting. Anderson, who served in the Army reserves, had a lengthy criminal record for a number of gun charges and served time in prison. He met Graham in 2017, and neighbors of the woman said she began to change after her relationship with Anderson began. Drake Serge, who lived next door to Graham in an Elizabeth housing development, said after Graham met Anderson, "everything went downhill from there.”

Authorities said one of the guns used in the shooting were purchased legally in Ohio by Graham in 2018. As a convicted felon, Anderson could not legally purchase a firearm.
