    THE UNITED STATES announced that it has sent 2 million doses of the anti-malaria drug touted as a coronavirus treatment by President Donald Trump to Brazil. In a joint statement Sunday, the U.S. and Brazil said the hydroxychloroquine will be used as a prophylactic to defend health care workers in Brazil against the virus, as well as a treatment to help Brazilians who become infected. The U.S. is also sending 1,000 ventilators to Brazil, which has the second most cases of COVID-19 in the world. Globally, health officials report more than 6.18 million cases of the coronavirus and more than...

    In April something was bugging me a familiarity amid the COVID lock-down status & another time I couldnt quite put my finger on it until a dear friend reminded me.Many U.S. states are acting like the early 1980s and the imposition of Martial law in Poland to target the Solidarity movement. Subsequently I wrote about it on a Twitter thread, because the parallels were really quite remarkable.Both Poland circa 1980 and the U.S. friction in 2020, center around fragile economic issues. Both were an outcome of state control; and the key connection is government targeting control over the workers.In both...

    Dozens of Chinese “propaganda” centers still operate across the United States, even as U.S. lawmakers debate how to hold the communist country accountable for withholding information about the coronavirus, which originated in China’s Wuhan province.For years, Campus Reform has reported on the number of Confucius Institutes on U.S. college campuses. Funded by the communist regime, these centers are marketed as Chinese language and culture centers. However, U.S. intelligence officials have warned that these centers are little more than “propaganda” arms of the communist country.Even the former Chinese propaganda minister,  Liu Yushan, wrote in a 2010 article for Chinese-state media:“With regard to key...

    BRUSSELS (Reuters) - World leaders and organisations pledged $8 billion to research, manufacture and distribute a possible vaccine and treatments for COVID-19 on Monday, but the United States refused to contribute to the global effort. Organisers included the European Union and non-EU countries Britain, Norway and Saudi Arabia. Leaders from Japan, Canada, South Africa and dozens of other countries joined the virtual event, while China, where the virus is believed to have originated, was only represented by its ambassador to the European Union. Governments aim to continue raising funds for several weeks or months, building on efforts by the World...

    An internal report presented to Chinese President Xi Jinping and other top leaders concludes that global anti-China sentiment is at a level not seen since the 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown, and recommends preparing for a worst-case scenario of armed conflict with the United States, according to Reuters, citing people familiar with the content of the document. The report, created by the China Institutes of Contemporary Internal Relations (CICIR) which is affiliated with the Ministry of State Security suggests that the wave of anti-China sentiment is led by the United States, which sees Chinas rise as a global superpower...

    A seething woman wearing USA gear is leaning out of a pickup truck in Denver, Colorado. She points at her sign - Land of the Free - while around her, vehicles blare their horns. Facing the metal mass are a pair of health care workers clad in teal scrubs. Theyre serene, blocking the crosswalk with crossed arms. In San Francisco, a line of cars creeps through downtown, sleeping bags and tents lashed on their roofs. The drivers blare their horns, signs posted on their windows demand #HotelRoomsNotHospitalBeds and Test us now! We need to know! On the sidewalk, advocates wearing...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) on Wednesday ordered that all New York City subway cars be cleaned every night by Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) workers to ensure the safety of essential personnel during the coronavirus pandemic. Any essential worker who shows up and gets on a train should know that that train was disinfected the night before, Cuomo told reporters at his daily coronavirus press briefing. Letting them endanger their own life and endanger the lives of others is not helping anyone, Cuomo said. The governor said that he wants the MTA to present to him a plan for...

    Millions of Americans who have been thrown out of work during the coronavirus pandemic have been unable to register for unemployment benefits since the U.S. economy entered a free fall, according to a poll released on Tuesday (April 28). The left-leaning Economic Policy Institute found in an online poll that for every 10 people who have successfully filed unemployment claims, three or four people have been unable to register and another two people have not tried to apply at a time of acute economic crisis. **SNIP** EPI's survey indicates that an additional 8.9 million to 13.9 million people have been...

    Hackers are trying to infect organizations throughout the world with a popular strain of malware by sending emails that appear to be from an Egyptian oil company. In research published Tuesday, Romanian antivirus company BitDefender noted a surge in attempted phishing attacks that try to trick users into downloading malware by masquerading as Enppi, an oil company owned by the Egyptian government. The malware, known as Agent Tesla, is a spyware tool which enables hackers to monitor keystrokes, steal data about file downloads and collect username and password credentials from internet browsers, among other capabilities.

    With the unwinding of the U.S.-Philippines Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA), the utility of Washingtons oldest alliance in the Indo-Pacific hangs in the balance.In February, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte ordered the termination of a 1998 Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA) with the United States, accusing Washington of neocolonial interference in his countrys domestic affairs. As political disagreements continue to fester, recent Chinese actions in the South China Sea underscore the need for a functioning U.S.-Philippines alliance. Richard Haass of the Council on Foreign Relations, writing in Foreign Affairs earlier this month, warned that declining U.S. leadership and mounting global discord, coupled with...

    Many times, when Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar talk, its their lips that move but the voice of Karl Marx that comes pouring out. In videos posted Thursday night by The Hill, Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Omar, D-Minn., suggested a radical transformation of significant parts of the American economy that are essential for fighting the effects of the coronavirus. After complaining that Americas systemic priorities are all wrong, AOC said, We have to start demanding and organizing from the bottom up - from grassroots movements, from nurses to warehouse workers to grocery store employees to the halls of Congress, demanding...

    Oil prices continued to rise for the third day in a row, recovering earlier losses as U.S. lawmakers pressure Saudi Arabia to end the oil war. The ongoing oil war, in which Saudi Arabia and Russia are the key players, has exacerbated the already tremendous glut in oil markets, and demand destruction could end up reaching 15-20 million bpd in April. According to Russell Hardy, Vitols chief executive, the supply overhang could end up filling storage tanks at a very high pace as India, with the worlds fastest-growing oil consumer now facing a nationwide lockdown.
