    So far we have 144,094 Coronavirus Cases 5,397 Died 70,920 Recovered. Things are serious bu the mainstream media is pushing for even more panic. There are currently no proven therapies for the latest outbreak, which has spread worldwide since emerging from the Chinese city of Wuhan a little over two months ago. Things should relax after a team of US scientists confirmed that they have completed a Coronavirus vaccine. As the Daily Mail reported: Scientists at Greffex, a Houston, Texas-based genetic engineering company, claim they’ve created a coronavirus vaccine. The company told the Houston Business Journal that it had completed...

    The federal government is seeking to tackle a new issue stemming from the deadly coronavirus outbreak; how to treat uninsured patients. On Tuesday, President Trump and top health officials discussed the possibility of funneling federal funds to health care providers..."The professionals are doing a great job, we're really happy with the job they're doing," he stated." "...we're ahead of it by stopping so much earlier...nobody wanted us to cut off access to our country and I did it early; by doing that, that was a big step."

    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Tuesday alerted Americans to begin preparing for the spread of coronavirus in the United States, after the flu-like virus surfaced in several more countries. The announcement signals a change in tone for the U.S. health agency, which had largely been focused on efforts to stop the virus from entering the country and quarantining individuals traveling from China.

    The coronavirus outbreak may be taking a heavier toll than expected on businesses in the United States, according to a survey released Friday. Private firms across the U.S. signaled “a slight decline in business activity in February,” IHS Markit said. The IHS Markit Flash U.S. Composite PMI Output Index dropped to 49.6 in February. That is down from 53.3 in January and below the consensus forecast. IHS said that overall contraction was driven by a the first fall in service sector output in four years. “With the exception of the government-shutdown of 2013, US business activity contracted for the first...

    A Syrian was killed and another was wounded when government supporters attacked American troops and tried to block their way as their convoy drove through an army checkpoint in northeastern Syria, prompting a rare clash, state media and activists reported. The U.S. military said its force came under fire, and that troops responded in self-defense. It said an investigation of the incident was underway.

    If the coronavirus is a real thing, and I assume it is, why are we letting planes from China land here?? They shouldn’t be able to come to the US at this time. Well, that could have been done a few years ago but now it would be a racist thing to do. Our mainstream media doesn’t care about our health they care about not offending any race. As infectious disease specialists and epidemiologists race to contain the outbreak of the novel coronavirus centered on Wuhan, China, they’re getting back up that’s been possible only since the explosion in genetic...

    Here’s a question for Speaker Nancy Pelosi: Have you heard of Albert Einstein’s definition of insanity? You’ve been screwing up for three years, starting with the juvenile resistance where you refused even to negotiate over big national interests such as border control. Then, just when it seemed you couldn’t sink any lower than that cheap, partisan impeachment you engineered, you hit a new low during the State of the Union. Your mumbling and sneering smiles throughout President’s Trump’s powerful address were bad enough, but your decision to tear into shreds your copy of his speech and drop it like a...

    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ^ | January 26, 2020 | Ana Swanson, The New York Times
    WASHINGTON — The Trump administration has temporarily shelved a proposed rule change that would further restrict American sales to Huawei, the Chinese telecom giant, after some officials in the Defense Department and other agencies argued that the measure, which was intended to protect national security, could actually undermine it, according to people familiar with the matter. The rule change, which multiple government agencies were reviewing, would close a loophole that allowed technology companies like Intel and Micron to continue shipping chips, software and other products to Huawei despite a ban that prevented the Chinese company from buying some American products....

    Despite its cool Green parties and ambitious wind and solar agendas, Europe remains by far the world’s largest importer of oil and natural gas. Oil output in the North Sea and off the coast of Norway is declining, and the European Union is quietly looking for fossil fuel energy anywhere it can find it. Europe itself is naturally rich in fossil fuels. It likely has more reserves of shale gas than the United States, currently the world’s largest producer of both oil and natural gas. Yet in most European countries, horizontal drilling and fracking to extract gas and oil are...

    At this point, Red and Blue America are not even speaking the same language. We stand near the point of what divorce lawyers term “irreconcilable differences.” In increasingly strident and self-assured tones, the Left believes it is morally superior, intellectually untouchable, and wholly justified in pursuing whatever extralegal, corrupt, or violent methods available to implement their ideology. Talk of a breaking point has been circling conservative circles for some time, with three tangible options arising from the chatter: 1) continued focus on barely winning elections, appointing "conservative" judges that uphold Obamacare, keeping Arizona from going blue, etc.; 2) a “divorce”...

    President Donald Trump’s United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement is finally up for a vote this week—just in time for Christmas. After nearly a year of delay, this gift for the American people represents an opportunity for freer trade and a chance to grow our economy, reduce prices on many goods, and increase our exports to the world, creating more and higher-paying jobs in the process. As we all know, just like with other Christmas gifts, you also can get the occasional ugly sweater that you really didn’t want. The same is true here. Some compromises were made to get USMCA through Congress,...

    The video of Hong Kong students singing the Star Spangled Banner was quite moving (click the photo above to see it). What a contrast to the self-centered, spoiled little snowflakes who are having a years-long temper tantrum because they want to be more like China, while the youth in Hong Kong is willing to die to be more like them. at least as far as liberty and freedom go. I am happy that I will be dead by the time this rotten tree bears fruit, and I only hope that the generation after the millennials can clean up what's...

    (Video Link) Hong Kong democracy supporters joined a March of Gratitude rally on Sunday to openly thank U.S. lawmakers for backing their fight against Beijing rule and their desire to live in freedom not tyranny. Some held banners reading “President Trump, please liberate Hong Kong” and “Let’s make Hong Kong great again” — a riff on his 2016 campaign pledge to make America great again. One showed the president standing atop a tank with “Trump” emblazoned on the front and side. Sunday’s show of defiance by thousands of marchers in the former British colony follows skirmishes overnight between police and...

    Global debt hit a record high of over $250 trillion in the first half of this year, led by a surge in borrowings in the U.S. and China, according to a new report. The report, released by the International Institute of Finance (IIF) on Thursday, showed that global debt surged by $7.5 trillion in the first six months of 2019. The IIF said the overall number hit $250.9 trillion at the end of this period, and will exceed $255 trillion by the end of 2019. “China and the U.S. accounted for over 60% of the increase. Similarly, EM debt also...

    KYIV, Ukraine—As the Russian shells and rockets rained down on them in the frontline town of Debaltseve in February 2015, Ukrainian troops began to receive curious, anonymous text messages on their cellphones. “Your comrades nearby already left their positions, so you should leave yours as well,” one message read. The messages also claimed that Petro Poroshenko, Ukraine’s president at that time, as well as Ukrainian military commanders, had “betrayed” their soldiers. The Ukrainian military later concluded that Russian military forces had taken over the local cellphone network with mobile jamming stations. The text messages were part of a psychological operation...
