America launches last-ditch bid to halt Huawei deal amid fears the tech agreement between UK and China is already 'done'

America has launched a last-ditch attempt to stop Boris Johnson giving the green light for Huawei to help build Britain’s 5G network.

Not the change they want! Leading Remainers say they will REFUSE to 'use or accept' new commemorative Brexit 50p coin and will DEMAND 'two 20p pieces and a 10p' instead in shops

Approximately three million of the coins are due to begin entering circulation on Friday as part of efforts to formally mark the UK's departure from the European Union.

The coins, bearing the words 'peace, prosperity and friendship with all nations' as well as the Brexit date of January 31, 2020, have sparked a furious backlash among pro-EU campaigners.

Lord Adonis, a Labour peer who has consistently fought to reverse Brexit, tweeted: 'I am never using or accepting this coin.'

Meanwhile, Alastair Campbell, Tony Blair's former spin doctor, echoed a similar sentiment as he said he will ask shops for alternatives to the coin if he is handed one in the future.

Three rockets 'score direct hits on the US embassy in Baghdad' in latest round of missiles aimed at heavily fortified Green Zone

Three rockets slammed into the US embassy in Iraq's capital on Sunday in the first direct hit reported after months of close calls, as thousands kept up anti-government sit-ins across the country.

The attack marked a dangerous escalation in the spree of rocket attacks in recent months that have targeted the embassy or Iraqi military bases where American troops are deployed.

None of the attacks has been claimed but Washington has repeatedly blamed Iran-backed military factions in Iraq.

Smart motorways ARE death traps and the Government was misled over their safety says minister who introduced them as full review is announced

The government is set to overhaul the smart motorway network after revealing 38 people have been killed on them in the last five years and MPs were misled over their safety.

Former minister, Sir Mike Penning, who approved the expansion of the scheme, claims the government was misled over the safety of taking away the hard shoulder on stretches of motorway during a trial in 2010.

Four people were killed on a section of the M1 in just 10 months after being hit by traffic in a busy lane that used to be a hard shoulder.

On one section of the M25 near misses have increased 20-fold since the hard shoulder was taken away, BBC Panorama has revealed.

Smart motorways do not have a hard shoulder and drivers who break down can be trapped in the speeding traffic.

Only one lab in China can safely handle the new coronavirus

They did it to themselves. We did it to them. A guy eating a hearty bowl of bat soup was the vector. Take your pick, but I smell bull$h!t!

As an escalating viral outbreak unfolds in China, only one lab in the country meets the required biosafety standards needed to study the new disease.

The lab happens to sit in the center of Wuhan, the city where the newly identified coronavirus first appeared, according to the Hindustan Times, an Indian news outlet. The facility, known as the Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory, is housed within the Chinese Academy of Sciences and was specifically designed to help Chinese scientists "prepare for and respond to future infectious disease outbreaks," according to a 2019 report published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

China’s New Coronavirus: An Examination of the Facts

Notable is that while SARS spread to about 40 countries, the infections in most countries were few and deaths almost zero, and it was exclusively (or almost exclusively) Chinese who were infected, those in Hong Kong most seriously, with Mainland China suffering little by comparison.
This appears to be precisely the case with this new virus, in that most of the infected persons (sofar) are Chinese. News reports speak of infections appearing in Thailand or the US, but those (at least to date of writing) were all Chinese who had been to Wuhan. There have been no cases so far of infected Caucasians.
.
As with SARS, this new virus appears to be tightly-focused to Chinese. At this stage it is too early to draw specific conclusions.

DirecTV moving satellite to higher orbit over fears of explosion

US authorities said Friday they had granted permission to a TV provider to urgently lift a four-ton (3,600-kilogram) satellite to a so-called “graveyard orbit” over fears a battery fault may soon cause it to explode.

DirecTV had told the Federal Communications Commission its Boeing-built Spaceway-1 satellite had suffered a “major anomaly” in its batteries and did not have time to deplete its remaining fuel before disposing of it by placing it 300 kilometers (190 miles) above the “geostationary arc.”

This arc is about 36,000 kilometers above the equator and is home to most of the world’s communication satellites because it allows them to move in sync with the Earth’s rotation, so that ground dishes do not have to track them across the sky.

An FCC spokesman told AFP on Friday that permission was granted on January 19 for DirecTV to begin its de-orbiting plan the following day.

Iraqis march in 'millions' to call for expulsion of US troops

Iraqis have rallied in Baghdad in massive numbers to call for an end to US military presence in the country following high-profile assassinations and airstrikes targeting anti-terror forces.

Sayed Sadiq al-Hashemi, the director of the Iraqi Center for Studies, said more than 2.5 million took part in the demonstrations on Friday.

Since the early hours on Friday, huge crowds of men, women and children of all ages converged on the Jadriyah neighborhood near Baghdad University.

The protesters were seen carrying banners and chanting slogans calling for the expulsion of US forces.

"Get out, get out, occupier!" some shouted, while others chanted, "Yes to sovereignty!"

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The photo accompanying this image, was not photoshopped; that is one whole heck of a lot of very ticked off and angry Iraqis, who want their country back.

Iran's Fars New Agency Says Its Website Blocked Due to Recent US Sanctions Against

Iranian Fars news agency wrote on its Telegram channel on Friday that its website was blocked after the US Treasury Department introduced sanctions against the country.

According to Fars, an international provider sent it an email saying that the reason for blocking the website was the order by the OFAC and the agency's inclusion into its Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) list.

At the same time, the agency reported that its website with .com domain was blocked.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My "canaries in the coal mine", in terms of knowing what is happening, would be presstv.com; Farsnews (in English); and presstv.com (in English).

IF all three are all simultaneously blocked by the US, you can guess that the excrement will hit the ventilator shaft very quickly thereafter.

TULSI GABBARD SUES HILLARY CLINTON: “OBVIOUS MALICIOUS INTENT”

Tulsi Gabbard has decided to sue corrupt Hillary Clinton. Gabbard describes the defamation suit over Clinton’s “Russian asset” smear as election meddling.

According to RT, Clinton “lied about her perceived rival Tulsi Gabbard… publicly, unambiguously, and with obvious malicious intent” when she claimed Gabbard was “the favorite of the Russians,” the campaign alleges in the lawsuit, filed on Wednesday in the federal Southern District of New York. While Clinton isn’t technically running against Gabbard in the 2020 contest, the filing drily notes that the role of president is “a position Clinton has long coveted but has not been able to attain.”

People seem shocked that Hillary Clinton has stooped to lying, but she’s a politician. Lying is what they all do. None of them are good people; if they were, they wouldn’t seek power over others.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gooooooo, Tulsi!! :-)

WikiLeaks Editor: US Is Saying First Amendment Doesn't Apply To Foreigners In Assange Case

Authored by Caitlin Johnstone,

WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Kristinn Hrafnsson gave a brief statement to the press after the latest court hearing for Julian Assange’s extradition case in London today, saying the Trump administration is arguing that the First Amendment of the US Constitution doesn’t provide press freedom protection to foreign nationals like Assange.

“We have now learned from submissions and affidavits presented by the United States to this court that they do not consider foreign nationals to have a First Amendment protection,” Hrafnsson said.“Now let that sink in for a second,” Hrafnsson continued.

Pentagon Now Says 34 US Soldiers Suffered Traumatic Brain Injuries In Iran Attack

n the latest major revelation contradicting the White House and Pentagon significantly downplayed casualty count regarding the Jan.8 Iranian ballistic missile attack on Ayn al-Asad airbase in Iraq, The New York Times is reporting that a total of 34 American soldiers have been diagnosed with serious head injuries ranging from concussion to traumatic brain injury.

Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman confirmed the much higher number Friday, after only a day ago the official toll stood at eleven after an initial Jan.17 statement, with at least eight of those which were considered serious enough to transport to a hospital in Germany. Hoffman said up to half of the 34 have already returned to their military duties, however, and 17 are still under medical observation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) will SOMEBODY please, politely explain to the President, that "headaches" are not in the bloody same league with traumatic brain injuries?!?

Trump meets Imran Khan in Davos, offers ‘help’ on Kashmir issue

US President Donald Trump on Tuesday reiterated his offer to “help” on the Kashmir issue, as he met Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan in Davos, Switzerland on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum.

Interestingly, Trump volunteered the US’s “help” even before Khan spoke — without any prompting or provocation.

Addressing the media with Khan at his side, Trump said, “We are talking about Kashmir and in relation to what is going on with Pakistan and India and if we can help — we certainly will be helping. We’ve been following that and watching it very very closely.”

Khan said it was the US which will be able to help resolve the issue, and said that he had pinned his hopes on the US President.

This is the fourth time that Trump has made such an offer - each time, India has rejected his proposal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, what is going on in Kashmir, is very complicated, and has a long, and difficult history.

To sum up the issue in as few words as possible, India has suggested Kashmir a referendum, through which the Kashmiris themselves, could decide if they wanted to stay with India; become independent; or merge with Pakistan.

That has never happened, Mr. President; and it will take a great deal of political courage, from the Indian side, to allow this to happen.

But if it does not happen, we can look for more bloodshed in this decades old civil war, between India and Pakistan, over Kashmir; and I politely will remind you, that in the Declaration of the Rights of Man, a UN Document, to which the US, Pakistan, and India are all signatories, there is a statement affirming the right of people for "peaceful self-determination"; that is precisely for what Kashmiris are advocating, which is falling on a collection of truly "deaf ears" in New Dehli.

Israel’s Major Political Blocs Emphasize Plans to Annex Parts of West Bank

Posturing for the next round of elections, Israel’s two major candidates, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Blue and White leader Benny Gantz are both talking up plans to annex pieces of the occupied West Bank if elected. It seems no matter who wins the vote, some annexations will happen.

Gantz is pushing the idea of annexing the Jordan Valley, the southern part of the West Bank. He says it is the eastern defensive barrier in any future conflict. The Jordan Valley borders Jordan, a nation nominally on good terms with Israel.

Netanyahu also wants to annex Jordan Valley, and much more. He says if he is elected, he will annex all settlements in the West Bank “without exception.” This would be a large portion of the occupied West Bank.

Netanyahu is also trying to portray Gantz as a “left-wing” leader for not wanting to annex more. He accused Arab MPs of having stopped Gantz from supporting an immediate annexation of the Jordan Valley.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me unsurprised by this movement; each politician is saying that if elected, they can annex the maximum amount of Palestinian real estate, for settler homes and businesses, with utterly no Palestinian blow-back.

On the 70th anniversary of Orwell’s death: The danger of third parties “curating” and “fact checking” our info

It is a dangerous practice: Government, corporations, universities, news outlets and “experts” curating our information so that we cannot access, see or believe that which they determine we should not access, see or believe.

If anyone had suggested to Orwell, or the American founders, that we would invite this sort of manipulation and control of our information, they wouldn’t have believed it.

The idea was first introduced on the national stage by President Obama in October of 2016 right before the presidential election. He insisted that somebody needed to step in and “curate” our information in the “Wild, Wild West” internet environment.

Nobody had been clamoring for any such thing.

So the challenge for those who came up with this bright idea– in my opinion in an effort to control news and information– was to convince the public to accept something very un-American: their information being shaped and censored by others.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do shudder and despair, at the degree to which Orwell's "1984" has been embraced as a "How-To manual", by those who want to control the narrative, rather than the cautionary tale it was meant to be.

Jan 24 07:04

A Swedish politician says that the government has 'lost control' after new figures reveal a 60% rise in bombings in 2019 over the previous year, amid what Reuters reports as "a surge in drug-linked gang-violence."

A Swedish politician says that the government has 'lost control' after new figures reveal a 60% rise in bombings in 2019 over the previous year, amid what Reuters reports as "a surge in drug-linked gang-violence."

"Unfortunately, this government has lost control of what is happening in Sweden. Now in the morning, we woke up again to news of bombs and explosions, this time in Stockholm’s inner city and in central Uppsala," wrote Moderate Party leader Ulf Kristersson in a recent Op-Ed for Aftonbladet.

Approximately 257 bomb attacks were reported to police last year, up from 162 in 2018, according to the country's National Council for Crime Prevention. No details were given as to the most frequent type of explosive, however Swedish media has reported the heavy use of bombs crafted from vacuum flasks packed with explosive material, according to Reuters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to feel very sorry for the Swedish people, who are slowly losing their way of life to this kind of crime, and the degree to which it is exploding, courtesy of unvetted and indiscriminate immigration, which their politicians have embraced with such fervor.

I would suggest that all Swedish politicians who supported this, are in for miserable surprises, come the next general election.

Trump Quietly Takes New Action Against Iran, Crushes Those Providing Concealed Support

The Trump administration quietly announced new crushing sanctions on Thursday against entities that have been providing concealed support to Iran, the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said, “Iran’s petrochemical and petroleum sectors are primary sources of funding for the Iranian regime’s global terrorist activities and enable its persistent use of violence against its own people.”

One of the entities sanctioned by the Trump administration was Triliance Petrochemical Co. Ltd., a Hong-Kong based broker with branches in Iran, United Arab Emirates, China, and Germany:

The other companies that were sanctioned were “Hong Kong-based Sage Energy HK Ltd.; Shanghai-based Peakview Industry Co.; and Dubai-based Beneathco DMCC,” according to The Wall Street Journal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why is Iran being singled out for this kind of treatment?!?

Because Israel wants to see it broken up into little mini-statelets, with no power, and its oil getting controlled by Israeli/US interests.

And can someone, please, tell me, just how President Trump is going to enforce this?!?

I would like to politely remind him, and the others who crafted these sanctions, that interdiction at sea is tantamount to an act of war.

Trump to release ‘great’ Israel peace plan ahead of Netanyahu visit, warns that Palestinians ‘may react negatively’

US President Donald Trump will finally unveil his ‘great’ plan for peace in the Middle East before Israeli leaders visit Washington next week. While the Palestinians may not like it, it will be good for them, Trump said.
Trump has long teased the existence of a plan that would resolve the long-running dispute between Israel and the Palestinians, reportedly developed by his son-in-law Jared Kushner. Its release, however, has been repeatedly delayed.

On the way to an event in Florida on Thursday, Trump told reporters on board Air Force One that he intends to make the plan public ahead of next week’s visit to Washington by Israel’s caretaker prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his chief rival Benny Gantz.

"It's a great plan," said Trump, "It's a plan that really would work."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, a word, please; I am having a palm to forehead moment, at warp speed, upon reading this.

And there is something which, in the most completely tone-deaf way possible, you, and your bff Netanyahu, cannot seem to grasp.

Because for Palestinians, this is not about economy; it is having a homeland of their own, with contiguous borders, which, with the current parsing out and planning of Jewish-only settlements in East Jerusalem and the West Bank, can no longer happen.

Ron Paul: The Impeachment Trial Of President Trump Is "Pure Politicking"

Former United States Hose of Representatives member and presidential candidate Ron Paul is not too impressed with the ongoing impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate. The impeachment trial is “pure politicking,“ declares Paul in a new interview at TRT World focused in the impeachment trial.

Paul further comments in the interview:

It’s always been said that impeachment is a political process. Well that’s an understatement when you look at what’s going on now.

With wrongdoing being pursued by politicians both Republican and Democrat in DC, Paul assesses in the interview that the real battle taking place is over “who’s going be the boss of this” and “who’s going to control the largess.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have watched these Senate impeachment proceedings just as little as I can, because I always need a huge bottle of anti-vomit medication right beside me when I do.

President Trump has been a disappointment to both of us on many different levels; but the objective of the Democrats, from the get go, was to remove him from office before the 2020 elections, because the current Democratic pool of potential Presidential candidates can't begin to fight how the monied have been financially taken care of, as well as the military industrial complex, under his watch.

That... is just the hard reality.

A-10 Warthogs Elephant Walk In Show Of Force, Weeks After 52 Stealth Fighters Taxied Down Runway 

The U.S. Air Force (USAF) conducted its second Elephant Walk within weeks, this time with ten Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II fighters at Selfridge Air National Guard Base, located in Harrison Township, Michigan, said Defense Blog.

Elephant walks are generally conducted right before a minimum interval takeoff (MITO), a technique used by USAF to scramble all jets to take off at twelve- and fifteen-second intervals.

The objective of the exercise is to get all fighters and bombers in the air within fifteen minutes of an alert of an incoming missile attack.

Defense Blog noted that an Elephant Walk "is a fundamental training element when preparing for global strike missions."

The 127th Wing's motto is "We Stand Ready," as the latest training exercise suggests the A-10s could be preparing for combat in the Middle East.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder; was this exercise more for domestic, or international consumption?!?

Were I a betting woman, I would bet on the former, rather than the latter, because I am sure that Iran, working with Russian intelligence, has a pretty decent grip on the US's military resources.

Just please remember; in pushing for a war against Iran, the US is also pushing for a war against Russia.

Iran ‘Won’t Be Alone’ If U.S. Attacks, Russian Official Says

I truly believe that Iranian leadership can "take that promise to the bank.", should hostilities devolve into a shooting war.

People like Zamir Kabulov, the Foreign Ministry’s special envoy for Asian countries including Iran, who made this statement last summer, rarely FART, without Putin's express approval.

US To Deploy Anti-Missile Systems In Iraq As Trump Downplays Troop Injuries As "Headaches"

President Trump was dismissive of widespread reports of eleven US soldiers sustaining head injuries as a result of the Jan.8 Iranian ballistic missile attack on Ayn al-Asad airbase in Iraq. At least eight had been airlifted to a medical facility in Germany for possible "traumatic brain injuries", which the Pentagon and administration kept mum about in the days following.

While fielding questions at Davos on Wednesday, Trump downplayed what he likened as mere “headaches” when pressed about the issue and the administration's evolving narrative, which initially emphasized "no US casualties" as a result of the Iranian attack.

Trump explained at the news conference his view that the injuries were “not very serious,” and added that “I heard they had headaches.” This prompted some veterans groups to reportedly say Trump is “somewhat out of touch” with the seriousness of it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would imagine that the anti-aircraft defenses would not be desired, if some sort of false flag was wanted (most probably crafted by Mossad) to demonise Iran, as the "justification" for a war against it.

But there is one interesting bit which seems to be missing from this article, and that is the timing of the arrival of these missiles.

Russiagate Spy Paid $1 Million By Obama Was WaPo Deep Throat

Stephan Halper, the longtime CIA and FBI operative who conducted espionage on the 2016 Trump campaign, was feeding information to Washington Post reporter David Ignatius through his handler, according to The Federalist, which describes his actions as "more evidence that the intelligence community has co-opted the press to push anti-Trump conspiracy theories."

According to a court filing by Michael Flynn's defense team, Halper's 'handler' in the Office of Net Assessment (ONA), Col. James Baker, "regularly lunched with the Washington Post reporter."

(Also leaking to Ignatius was Christopher Steele)

As we noted in May of 2018, Halper was paid over $1 million by the Obama administration through the Office of Net Assessment - nearly half of which came during 'Russiagate' - in which he not only surveilled multiple Trump campaign aides, he was involved in an effort to tie General Flynn to a Russian academic, Svetlana Lokhova, as part of a smear campaign.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think the words "amazingly corrupt" even scratch the surface of what was done here.

With the world's attention focused on the Coronavirus outbreak and to a lesser extent on Trump's impeachment trial, the war in Libya just got a lot more scary in terms of the potential for mass civilian death.

Incredibly, Gen. Khalifa Haftar's Libyan National Army (LNA) just threatened to shoot down civilian planes after days ago declaring a 'no fly zone' over Tripoli following increased Turkish intervention. The BBC reports the unambiguous and shocking declaration as follows:

Gen Haftar's spokesman, Ahmad al-Mesmari, said in a statement on Wednesday that "any military or civilian aircraft, regardless of its affiliation, flying over the capital will be destroyed".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It looks as though a lot more people are going to die, courtesy of the assassination of Ghadaffi back in 2011..

Of course, no one wants to talk about his being about ready to introduce a new currency, a gold-backed dinar, which could have unified the African economy, and thrown the US dollar into an horrific decline.

Pharma Founder Gets 66 Months For Bribing Doctors To Overprescribe Deadly Opioids

Millions of Americans who lived through the financial crisis probably recall that not a single executive of a major investment bank was jailed in the aftermath, despite running organizations seemingly dedicated to perpetuating a criminal fraud on nearly every counterparty and client.

But when Americans look back at the opioid crisis, they'll remember that at least one executive of a major opioid manufacturer and distributor was sentenced to a fairly weighty sentence - five-and-a-half years (66 months) in federal prison - for an illegal kickback scheme that effectively involved bribing doctors to prescribe potentially lethal doses of fentanyl. That's right: Packaged under the name brand Subsys, Insys sold a painkiller made from the same ultra-powerful synthetic opioid responsible for tens of thousands of deaths across America.

The Empire's War On Oppositional Journalism Continues To Escalate

Authored by Caitlin Johnstone via Medium.com,

Journalist Glenn Greenwald has been charged by the Bolsonaro government in Brazil with the same prosecutorial angle used by the US to target WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

Citing intercepted messages between Mr. Greenwald and the hackers, prosecutors say the journalist played a “clear role in facilitating the commission of a crime.”

For instance, prosecutors contend that Mr. Greenwald encouraged the hackers to delete archives that had already been shared with The Intercept Brasil, in order to cover their tracks.

Prosecutors also say that Mr. Greenwald was communicating with the hackers while they were actively monitoring private chats on Telegram, a messaging app. The complaint charged six other individuals, including four who were detained last year in connection with the cellphone hacking.

They Killed King For The Same Reason They Killed Kennedy

Authored by Jacob Hornberger via The Future of Freedom Foundation,

Amidst all the anti-Russia brouhaha that has enveloped our nation, we shouldn’t forget that the U.S. national-security establishment — specifically the Pentagon, CIA, and FBI — was convinced that Martin Luther King Jr. was a communist agent who was spearheading a communist takeover of the United States.

The loss of both Kennedy and King constituted conclusive confirmation that the worst mistake in U.S. history was to abandon a limited-government republic type of governmental system in favor of a totalitarian governmental structure known as a national-security state. A free nation does not fight communism with communist tactics and an omnipotent government. A free nation fights communism with freedom and limited government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It has been apparent to me, for quite some time, that the image...of what I thought this nation truly was, was simply just that; an image, having nothing to do with the reality of what this country does, or how it conducts is business, both at home and abroad.

Turkey Demands Greece "Demilitarize" 16 Aegean Islands Amid Gas Drilling Dispute

At a moment tensions are soaring over Turkey's expansive East Mediterranean claims, and after starting early last summer it began sending oil and gas exploration and drilling ships off Cyprus' coast, Ankara is demanding that Greece “demilitarize” its islands in the Aegean Sea, reports Bloomberg.

The demand from Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar, who formally requested Greece move to withdraw armed forces and weaponry from 16 Aegean islands near Turkey on Wednesday, is rich given it's Turkey that's been provocatively sending warships and military jets to accompany illegal gas drilling in the area, something lately condemned by the EU.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This could get very ugly, very quickly; I would like to hope that some of the adults in the room in NATO, to which both countries belong, can have a quiet conversation with Greek and Turkish officials about not resorting to a military "brass knuckles" approach in resolving this issue.

Putin Calls For A New System Guided By UN Charter... But Is It Possible?

Authored by Matthew Ehret via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

Anyone looking with sober eyes upon today’s world and the feeble economic and geopolitical underpinnings holding the system together must accept the fact that a new system WILL be created.

This is not an opinion, but a fact. We are moving towards eight billion lives on this globe and the means of productive powers to sustain that growing population (at least in the west) has been permitted to decay terribly over the recent half century while monetary values have grown like a hyperinflationary cancer to unimaginable proportions. Derivatives speculation alone under the deregulated “too big to fail” banking system has resulted in over $1.5 quadrillion in nominal values which have ZERO connection to the real world (GDP globally barely accounts for $80 trillion). Over the past 5 months $415 billion of QE bailouts have been released into the bankrupt banks to prevent a collapse. So, economically it’s foundation of sand.

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,A German panel of linguists which decides on a new word to ‘ban’ every year has announced the ‘un-wording’ of the term “climate hysteria” because it undermines propaganda about man-made global warming.

First of all, just let it sink in that there is an organization comprised of linguists which exists solely to ‘ban’ words and terms that they don’t like. Their action is known as ‘Un-word of the year’.

They’re literally attempting to re-create 1984’s Newspeak dictionary, which shrank in size year after year in order to eliminate language and limit free thought and free speech, making it harder for the plebs to vocalize their opposition to The Party.

As you may have suspected, every word or term already ‘banned’ by the group in recent years are ones used by conservatives to challenge leftist political tropes. Imagine my shock.

Terms ‘un-worded’ in recent years include “alternative facts,” “do-gooder,” “Lügenpresse” (liar press) and “welfare tourism” (referring to “foreigners in Germany allegedly leeching on the welfare system.”)

The panel says it exists to discourage the use of words that “discriminate against societal groups or may be euphemistic, disguising or misleading.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable, yet thoroughly predictable, courtesy of the German "Word Police".

Because when a narrative does not jive with the science facts of what is happening with the earth's climate, that narrative has to be confined, condemned, crushed, and restrained, so that no one will hear anything approximating a what is tantamount to a dangerously reasonable challenge to the status quo belief.

George Orwell was much more than a brilliant writer; he was a prophet of the highest order, and now that we see his societal prophecies taking shape, both in this country, and the world, at absolutely beyond warp speed, we recognise how completely dystopian this world has become.

Post-Brexit Britain Eyes New Forceful Role In Asia

Authored by David Hutt via AsiaTimes.com,

When Britain leaves the European Union (EU) later this month, it will be free to chart its own independent course in foreign affairs and fulfill years of promises to build a truly “global Britain.”

That will likely entail a historic realignment of its foreign policy interests from the Middle East and Africa to the “Indo-Pacific,” one of the three “primary centers of the global economy and political influence”, after North America and Europe, according to the United Kingdom’s last National Security Capability Review published in March 2018.

The Indo-Pacific is currently home to most of the world’s largest and fastest growing economies, as well as the center of US-China geopolitical competition, which isn’t likely to dampen down anytime soon.

'Please, Help Us!': Supply Shortages Rock Wuhan As Outbreak Overwhelms Chinese Healthcare System

Summary: Here's a glimpse of new virus-related developments that occurred overnight.

Total number of confirmed cases now 900+, 26 dead.
China restricts travel for 40+ million people as the death toll surges.
Two deaths have been reported outside Wuhan.
Some residents displaying symptoms are being turned away from hospitals.
Hospitals in Wuhan make urgent pleas for help and supplies.
UK and US governments tell citizens to avoid outbreak zones.
* * *
Asian markets closed on Friday for the Lunar New Year holiday, which officially begins on Saturday. But in China, the Communist Party leadership are scrambling to contain the virus as 13 cities in Hubei Province are now under quarantine, meaning more than 40 million Chinese will be forced to spend the holiday week at home, the South China Morning Post reports.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And here is a companion piece, from zerohedge.com, indicating what might have happened here The Real Umbrella Corp: Wuhan Ultra Biohazard Lab Was Studying "The World's Most Dangerous Pathogens

When strict protocols are abandoned, or relaxed, even for a moment, crud like this can descent on a facility like Wuhan Ultra Biohazard Lab, in a heartbeat.

Science, like music, should be an international language; and I implore (and pray) that the international scientific community is working with Chinese scientists to find out how this happened, and insure that it never happens again.

A "Pro-Life Hero"? Trump Becomes First President To Speak At 'March For Life'

After the editor of Christianity Today infuriated the president and stunned the American evangelical community by declaring that President Trump should be booted from office, the president has apparently found a way to show this critical constituency of his base that he truly is fighting for them.

According to the Washington Post, in an unprecedented move, Trump is slated to become the first sitting American president to speak at the 'March for Life' - an annual rally in Washington that draws hundreds of thousands of anti-abortion activists. This despite the frequent criticism leveled at the president complaining that he doesn't respect religion, despite having appointed two conservative justices to SCOTUS and hundreds more to the federal bench.
