"Some even believe we are a part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty and I am proud of it." -- David Rockefeller, Memoirs.

AP Confirms: Democrats Are Lying to the Public About Coronavirus Readiness

An Associated Press fact check confirms what Breitbart News reported earlier this week: that Democrat presidential candidates are falsely claiming that President Donald Trump cut funding and personnel needed to fight coronavirus.

On Tuesday, Breitbart News fact-checked “mostly false” claims by former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg during the Democrat debate in South Carolina. Bloomberg claimed that Trump had “fired” a pandemic specialist at the White House, and “defunded” the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The implication: Trump was to blame for the spread of coronavirus — even though there have been just over a dozen cases and no fatalities in the U.S.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ok, folks; I am having a palm to forehead moment, at warp speed, upon reading this.

The last thing in the world that politicians on both sides of the aisle should be doing right now, is politicizing this horrific outbreak; you should be figuring out how to keep Americans as safe as possible, and encouraging scientific collaboration for the discovery of a vaccine which is safe and effective against this.

But Democrats, to be making such patently false charges; shame on you!

The American people deserve better than this, and you know it.

U.S. mulls using sweeping powers to ramp up production of coronavirus protective gear

President Donald Trump’s administration is considering invoking special powers through a law called the Defense Production Act to rapidly expand domestic manufacturing of protective masks and clothing to combat the coronavirus in the United States, two U.S. officials told Reuters.

The use of the law, passed by Congress in 1950 at the outset of the Korean War, would mark an escalation of the administration’s response to the outbreak. The virus first surfaced in China and has since spread to other countries including the United States.

U.S. health officials have told Americans to begin preparing for the spread of the virus in the United States.

The law grants the president the power to expand industrial production of key materials or products for national security and other reasons. The biggest producers of face masks in the United States include 3M Corp and Honeywell International Inc.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given the rapidity of the spread of this virus, invoking such a law would not be an unreasonable thing to do.

The one thing that neither side of the aisle should do right now, particularly in the light of the reality of the fact that we are in a hotly contested election year this year, is politicize the governmental response here; every single politician, running for office than not, should be precisely on the same page regarding protecting everyone here from this virus as much as can possibly be done, period, end of discussion.

SAN FRANCISCO DECLARES STATE OF EMERGENCY OVER CORONAVIRUS

SOURCE: CNN
San Francisco's mayor on Tuesday declared a local emergency to make it easier for the populous city and international travel hub to combat novel coronavirus if it comes -- even while stressing that it isn't there yet.

The move will, among other things, help the city get reimbursed by state and federal governments for money it spends on preparedness, Mayor London Breed said at a news conference "This declaration of emergency is all about preparedness," Breed said.

The announcement follows similar declarations in California's Santa Clara and San Diego counties. The move came as US health officials warned they expect to eventually see a continual spread of coronavirus in the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not think that San Francisco has "jumped the shark", or been unreasonable in attempting to protect the city's citizens regarding this, considering the widespread path of this disease, and the potential for further infections down the road.

CORONAVIRUS: JAPAN CLOSING ALL SCHOOLS

SOURCE: REUTERS
Japan’s entire school system, from elementary to high schools, will be asked to close from Monday until spring break late in March to help contain the coronavirus outbreak, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Thursday.

The dramatic escalation of Japan’s fight against the virus follows rising criticism of what has been seen as a lukewarm government response.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a rather draconian response, but I can certainly understand why Japan is doing this right now.

BUTTIGIEG FACES MORE ACCUSATIONS OF PLAGIARIZING OBAMA IN CAMPAIGN SPEECHES

Former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg is facing more accusations of plagiarism after a montage emerged comparing his campaign rhetoric to President Obama's.

Political outlet The Recount shared a video on Monday, showing several short clips of Buttigieg and Obama with similarly worded sayings during various stump speeches.

"Just a thought" and "this country was built" were the more generic phrases that were lined up between the two Democrats, but things get very similar when "church basements" are invoked.

Even more aligned were when Buttigieg and Obama each spoke of the country "shining as a beacon" to the world.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am profoundly disappointed by Buttigieg on this; I really expected better of both him, and his speech writers here.

Schools Are Pushing the Boundaries of Surveillance Technologies

By Mona Wang and Gennie Gebhart

A school district in New York recently adopted facial recognition technology to monitor students, and it is now one of a growing number of schools across the country conducting mass privacy violations of kids in the name of “safety.” The invasive use of surveillance technologies in schools has grown exponentially, often without oversight or recourse for concerned students or their parents.

Not only that, but schools are experimenting with the very same surveillance technologies that totalitarian governments use to surveil and abuse the rights of their citizens everywhere: online, offline, and on their phones. What does that mean? We are surveilling our students as if they were dissidents under an authoritarian regime.

Schools must stop using these invasive technologies...

7 Tips to Create a Hack-Proof Password You'll Actually Remember

Sure, both Visa and MasterCard have zero-liability policies that say you won't be held responsible for unauthorized card charges as long as you report the fraud promptly. But wording in the fine print adds a caveat: to qualify, the cardholder must use care to protect the card. Could a password that's easy to crack violate those rules? At least one bank in Canada this year was reported to have held a 20-year-old student accountable for around $6,800 in fraudulent charges made after she lost her debit card because she'd used the last four digits of her phone number, an easy-to-figure-out sequence, as her personal identification number.

Georgia city sues drug company over medicine that went from $40 to $39,000

The city of Marietta, Ga., has filed a class action lawsuit against a drug company after the price of a decades-old medicine went from $40 a vial to more than $39,000.

The city, which covers health care costs for employees and their families, says it has already spent more than $2 million on the drug for a single patient.

Stacie Dusetzina, an associate professor of health policy at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, reviewed the complaint and said it’s indicative of a national problem with market-driven drug prices.

Why the Coming Economic Collapse Will NOT be Caused by Corona Virus

With Monday’s 1000 point stock market plunge the internet has been set ablaze with discussion of a new crash looming on the horizon. The fact that such a chain reaction collapse was only kept at bay due to massive liquidity injections by the Federal Reserve’s overnight repo loans should not be ignored. These injections which began in September 2019, have grown to over $100 billion per night… all that to support the largest financial bubble in human history with global derivatives estimated at $1.2 quadrillion (20 times the global GDP!).

Sadly economic illiteracy is so pervasive among today’s modern economists that the real reasons for this crisis have been entirely misdiagnosed with financial experts from CNN, to Forbes blaming the volatility on the spread of the Corona virus!

Tesla Burning: Down 30% In Days As Markets Blindsided By Worst Weekly Selloff Since The Financial Crisis

Yes, every millennial and annoying family member crowing over the last 2 months at family gatherings and social events about what investing geniuses they are for buying Tesla is now rushing to slam the sell button and get ahead of what is likely to be continued, non-stop selling, as the coronavirus pandemic continues to grind the global economy to a halt and strike the investing public with fear of the many unknowns that still remain.

Tesla is down about 12% today so far and about 30% off its 52 week highs.

Researchers find Xanax, caffeine and cough medicine in “pure” blood ready for transfusion

In a collaboration between researchers from the University of Illinois and Oregon State University, samples were tested using mass spectrometry that had been collected by blood banks and were destined for transfusion but had expired before they were able to be used. The samples were being tested in order to determine the purity of the blood samples prior to using them for their study to test a method that examines how botanicals such as ginkgo biloba, echinacea, and CBD oil affect drug metabolization.

The researchers did not expect to find any substances in the so-called “pure sample” transfusions, but it turned out that a full 100 percent of them contained caffeine. Even more surprisingly, 70 percent of the samples contained alprazolam, the chemical behind the anti-anxiety medication Xanax.

Another chemical that appeared frequently was dextromethorphan. A component of cough medicine, it appeared in eight of the samples tested.

Media ‘infodemic’ causes more damage to Italy than coronavirus outbreak — FM Di Maio

The “infodemic” around COVID-19 is more damaging to Italy than the virus itself, Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio has said. This is as the number of registered Italian cases jumped by 100 overnight and two more people have died.

“The epidemic of misleading information will do more damage to Italy than the risk of the virus epidemic itself,” Di Maio told reporters Thursday. “We have gone from an epidemic risk to an ‘infodemic’ one.”

The spread of “misleading” reports damages not only the fragile economy of the country — that has seen three recessions in just over a decade — but also the reputation of its scientific community, the minister added.

Italian scientists are “addressing the situation brilliantly,” while the media scare blows the situation out of proportion, he argued. So far, the outbreak affects only 0.089 percent of the country’s population, including infected and quarantined, the official explained.
