    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...

    A video by authorities in Vietnam about how to prevent COVID-19 coronavirus was so catchy it went viral. The pop song, a collaboration between musicians and Vietnam's health ministry, has been viewed more than five million times on YouTube. Music composer Khac Hung wrote the music and lyrics, and it is sung by popstars MIN and Erik. The Saigoneer site explains the melody was used in a previous hit by these artists, entitled Ghen, but the lyrics were changed.

    The basic building blocks of U.S. health care are now under the control of the Chinese Communist Party. -- Chinese President Xi Jinping recently warned of the “grave” situation posed by the “accelerating spread” of the coronavirus in China. Xi’s frank warnings were unusual for the seniormost official of the Chinese Communist Party and reveal the depth of the concern at the highest levels of the country’s leadership. Already, nearly 500 people have died and tens of thousands more have been diagnosed with the novel coronavirus. It has been found in Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Europe and the United States....

    The "Little Apocalypse" of the Old Testament is found in Isaiah 24. It reveals the Apocalypse of Revelation (on a macro level); the final earthly judgments of the tribulation prior to the Messianic Kingdom called the Millennium (Jesus Christ rules and reigns from Jerusalem for a thousand years). The Apocalypse (also called the Tribulation) is brought upon the earth because man has defiled it. Isaiah 24:1 Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof. 2 And it shall be, as with the people, so with the...

    SEOUL, Dec. 13 (Yonhap) -- Fresh satellite imagery showed a 10-meter-long truck and a possible crane at North Korea's satellite launching site, U.S. experts said, amid concerns the communist nation could launch a long-range rocket from the site. Jack Liu, an expert on North Korea's missile program, and Peter Makowsky, an imagery analysis expert, said in an analysis on the website 38 North that continued activity was captured on satellite imagery taken Wednesday of the Sohae Satellite Launching Ground, better known as the Dongchang-ri site.

    And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might...

    A stunning map published this month by Smithsonian Magazine provides new details about the expansive nature of U.S. military involvement around the world as it relates to the post-9/11 “war on terror.” Contrary to the narrative that the war is winding down, the map resembles a modern-day version of shows a U.S. military presence akin to the period when the the ‘sun never sat on the British empire.’ Some 17 years after the war began, U.S. military presence globally is expanding and has now spread to more than 40 percent of the world’s countries. By ‘presence,’ that includes U.S. military...

    EXHIBIT: The power of media On display here is the power of the media that I think is helping to shape the distorted opinions of millennials. While the charts and maps show optimistic trends in almost every category, the author starts this report by saying: "For most Americans, these feel like bleak times. We have a massively unpopular, scandal-plagued president whose aides are being convicted of serious federal felonies. Overt, old-fashioned racism is publicly visible and powerful in a way it wasn’t only five years ago. More than 200 admired, powerful men have been accused of sexual misconduct or assault....

    “What is good for the United States is good for the rest of the world,” has been Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s mantra. Americans know how stock prices have exploded in the United States since President Trump’s election, but stock prices started rising at the same time around the world. To the shocks of Trump’s American opponents, he was greeted by the international elites at the gathering in Davos, Switzerland as almost a conquering hero. Meanwhile, George Soros told people at the meetings that he thought that Trump was a “danger” to the world. So many people view economics as a...

    Saudi Arabia's asking its people to leave Lebanon will create a crisis, as they are taking their money and the banks will fail. Lebanon's government is now essentially nonfunctioning. Macron has arrived unexpectedly in Saudi to try to make peace. More on the Europeans and Soros's meddling, donating to people and parties in the European Union parliament. And meanwhile Russia is silent. Repercussions of all of this on Israel, of course. An excellent summary and update. Look up, as always.
