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.

Deadly Distractions: Laying the Groundwork for the Next Civil War

And so it continues.

This impeachment fiasco is merely the latest in a never-ending series of distractions, distortions, and political theater aimed at diverting the public’s attention from the sinister advances of the American Police State.

Don’t allow yourselves to be distracted, diverted or mesmerized by the cheap theater tricks.

This impeachment spectacle is Shakespearean in its scope: full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Nothing is the key word here.

Despite the wall-to-wall media coverage, nothing will change.

Mark my words: the government will remain as corrupt and self-serving as ever, dominated by two political factions that pretend to be at odds with each other all the while moving in lockstep to maintain the status quo.

75 years ago, Audie Murphy earned his Medal of Honor with nothing but a burning tank destroyer's .50 cal and insane bravery

On January 26, 1945, the most decorated U.S. service member of World War II earned his legacy in a fiery fashion.

Audie Murphy — then a second lieutenant commanding Company B of the 1st Battalion, 15th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division — found himself surrounded by six German tanks and wave after wave of enemy infantry while fighting in Holtzwihr, France. Rather than retreat with his men, Murphy made a gutsy decision: He ordered his soldiers withdraw to the cover of nearby forest and set up their artillery while he remained at his forward command post to direct their fire.

8 Things to Consider Before Panicking About the Coronavirus

Phillip Schneider, Staff Writer
Waking Times

If you read the news, you’ve likely heard about the “deadly” coronavirus in China. You’ve probably seen videos of sick people and heard about the impending doom that our great nation faces if we don’t do something about this grave threat coming from China.

But have you ever thought about why we’re hearing so much about this virus, despite it affecting only a relatively small number of people in another country? Who benefits from a mass media hype around the Coronavirus?

1. This Story is Getting Massive Hype

No one can deny the incredible hype that this story is getting. But, why?

Texas church hero takes on Michael Bloomberg: If we did things his way, many more would be dead

Had there been no average U.S. citizens with guns -- like 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg advocates for -- the "carnage" of the shooting inside the West Freeway Church of Christ on December 29 would have been "significantly greater," Texas church shooting hero Jack Wilson said Wednesday.

The Median Age of Wuhan Virus Fatalities Is 75

We go through this every couple of years. Mad cow disease, bird flu, SARS, ebola are just a few of the past examples. In the end, none of them ever racked up high body counts.

The Wuhan virus has so far killed 26 people, all of whom were elderly or had pre-existing conditions. In fact, the median age of the first 19 victims is 75-years old.

Coronavirus - Another Illuminati Psy Op?

They pull the same scams over and over and the people keep falling for them.

More than 200 viruses cause cold symptoms. They are the most common infectious diseases in humans and are mainly caused by coronaviruses or rhinoviruses. These cold viruses mutate constantly and therefore there is no way to formulate vaccines. Google " WHAT CAUSES COLDS" and you'll find many articles saying CORONAVIRUSES are just common cold viruses.

But mass media again wants TO PANIC EVERYONE. This is the annual panic party to promote social control through fear, anger and distraction. For perspective, I repost this 2014 article about the Ebola panic. (Thanks Andrew for the suggestion.)

REALITY CHECK: Coronavirus fear porn

China is shutting down, or so we’re being told. Cities are on lockdown. Disneyland is closed. New Year is cancelled. Every day, China closes down more theatres or other more public spaces in their desperate attempts to thwart the spread of this terrible coronavirus.

The headlines tell this virus is “mutated”, and that China’s “lockdown” is affecting 33 million people.It all sounds very scary.

The reality is that 26 people have died.

For comparison’s sake, 80,000 people died of flu in 2018 in the United States alone. (at least, according to the CDC).

Coronavirus – or rather, this particular strain of coronavirus, as they are very common and mostly harmless – has had 800 reported cases to go along with those 26 reported deaths. That’s a mortality rate of just over three per cent.

List of Soros Politicians ‘Bought and Paid For’ Includes Republicans By wmw_admin on January 26, 2020

George and Trump have made several hundred million doing business with each other and have even been co-defendants in a civil money laundering suit.

If the creator of the James Bond spy novels, Ian Fleming, were alive and writing a new thriller today, it wouldn’t be a stretch to believe he’d base his diabolical, untouchable villain on the life and activities of George Soros, including allegations of his being a Nazi-sympathizer (see video below).

According to a reliable source, OpenSecrets.org, the list of politicians who accepted cash from multi-billionaire provocateur George Soros includes several Republicans who were already suspected of being RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) or out-and-out liberal-left collaborators or “useful idiots.”

The list includes the who’s-who of the Republican Party “establishment” who campaign as conservatives but legislate or govern as the progressives who are members and who control the Democratic Party lock, stock and barrel.

A Limited-Government Republic versus a National-Security State

The worst mistake that the American people have made in the entire history of the United States was to permit the conversion of the federal government to a national-security state. That conversion has played a major role in the destruction of our liberty, privacy, and economic well-being.

What is a national-security state? It is a totalitarian-like governmental structure that consists of an enormous military-intelligence establishment with extraordinary powers, such as indefinite detention, torture, secret surveillance, and even assassination of both citizens and foreigners.

Assange moved out of solitary in UK prison

Now that he is in General Population let us hope that someone doesn't murder him.

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has been moved out of solitary confinement in a British prison after a series of petitions by his legal team and fellow inmates, his organisation says.

The Australian has been held almost incommunicado with severe restrictions on his access to visitors in Belmarsh prison near London since April as he awaits his US extradition trial set to start on February 24.

The USMCA "Trade Agreement" violates our Constitution and sets up Global Government

By Publius Huldah
January 10, 2019

On November 30, 2018, President Trump, along with the Prime Minister of Canada and the President of Mexico, signed the United States-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) "Trade Agreement." "Trade" is in quotes, because the document isn't about "trade" – it's about setting up global government. "Agreement" is in quotes because the document is a "treaty" – and that invokes the two-thirds ratification requirement of Art. II, §2, cl. 2, U.S. Constitution.

The USMCA Treaty ("Treaty") was negotiated by U.S. Trade Representative, Robert Lighthizer. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, which works to move the United States into the North American Union (NAU). 1

The Treaty advances the economic and regulatory integration of the three Parties. It is the precursor to the political integration the globalists seek with the NAU.2

On the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, he was asked if cutting Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security is on his agenda.

“At some point they will be,” he responded, adding: Cutting them is “the easiest of all things,” falsely claiming greater economic growth that doesn’t exist makes it possible.

Due to Israel’s restriction of gas, prevented from entering the besieged coastal enclave, the people of Gaza are facing a lack of sufficient heating, lighting, and the ability to properly deal with sewage, all this and more whilst their Arab neighbor, Egypt, is purchasing stolen Israeli gas.

EX-CIA Lawyer: The Soleimani Hit Was a Homicide Under U.S. Criminal Law

This is a high crime an an impeachable offence. Like I have said many times the opposition to Trump is a psyop.

In bragging that he ordered a successful hit on Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, President Trump has admitted to killing a senior government official of a sovereign state, Iran, while he was traveling in another sovereign state, Iraq. On its face, his conduct and intent satisfy the elements of premeditated murder under Section 1116 of Title 18 of the United States Criminal Code, "Murder or manslaughter of foreign officials, official guests, or internationally protected persons."

Eagle Point, OR — In October of 2018, a family was devastated and heartbroken after learning that the officers who took their son’s life would not be charged and were ruled justified in his killing—over improperly crossing the street. Matthew Graves, 33, was shot in the back twice by police last month after they followed him into a Carl’s Jr. bathroom because they suspected him of jaywalking. Now, after the cops who murdered him got off Scot free, the taxpayers are being held liable to the tune of $4.5 million.

“The Eye of Moscow”: Russia’s new RDR equipment tracks NATO’s “stealth” vehicles

You know these secret USA satellites, those that still haven’t presented the west with a single image of the moskal hordes in the Donbass? What do you mean you don’t know about the secret satellites and the total dominance of the advanced Pentagon over backward Russia? You are probably just cursed vatniks that do not pay due attention to the filtered newsfeed of American propaganda.

There is no place where the might of the West is felt stronger than Zuckerbook, democratically moderated by euro-ukros, and sumerian websites like censor.net.ua. Whoever wants to immerse themselves in the wondrous fantasy world e.g. the War of the Rifle Against the Laser, can ask the forelocked ones and their imaginary colleagues like the fake Pentagon analyst David Jewberg.

All other people living in the real world, instead of their personalized newsfeed world, are kinda aware of the fact that the generally technical or specifically military superiority of the West over Russia is no more.

VFW demands apology after Trump claims traumatic brain injuries are not 'very serious'

The Veterans of Foreign Wars has demanded an apology from President Trump over recent comments in which he downplayed the seriousness of traumatic brain injuries suffered by American troops in an Iranian missile attack.

"The Veterans of Foreign Wars cannot stand idle on this matter," William "Doc" Schmitz, VFW National Commander, said in a statement Friday, noting TBI is a serious injury known to cause depression, memory loss, severe headaches and other symptoms in the short and long-term.

Man who pushed SARS dud now pushing new Chinese virus

by Jon Rappoport

January 24, 2020First, a few updates. Things are moving fast.

The Chinese government has locked down Wuhan, a city of 11 million people, owing to the “threat of the coronavirus.” There are also travel restrictions in several other Chinese cities. What does all this prove?

Answer: Nothing.

It proves the Chinese government wants to install tighter controls. It doesn’t lead to the conclusion that a coronavirus is making people sick or killing them.

“The Great Die-Off”: 6 … that never happened.

On the first Earth Day in 1970, environmentalists predicted the direst imaginable consequences, including the possible extinction of the human race, within 30 years.

That is, if we earthlings didn’t obey them and go back to living the life of the savage: “poor, nasty, brutish, and short”. They didn’t put it that way exactly. But that’s what their wishes would have brought us to.

“Solitary” should also be in that quotation from Thomas Hobbes, but that wouldn’t be the case because the doomsday environmentalists are collectivists to a man and feminist.

Not a single one of their predictions has come true.

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.

Donald Trump and Israel: When Does a ‘Passionate Attachment’ Threaten National Security?

Philip Giraldi

December 12, 2019
In his Farewell Address, of 1796 America’s first president George Washington famously warned his fellow citizens that “…a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils. Sympathy for the favorite nation, facilitating the illusion of an imaginary common interest in cases where no real common interest exists, and infusing into one the enmities of the other, betrays the former into a participation in the quarrels and wars of the latter without adequate inducement or justification.”

In today’s United States, there is no more “passionate attachment” than that which exists with Israel.

Is this what is going on behind the scene? The Yinon plan

“Greater Israel”: The Zionist Plan for the Middle East
The Infamous "Oded Yinon Plan". Introduction by Michel Chossudovsky

Introduction

The following document pertaining to the formation of “Greater Israel” constitutes the cornerstone of powerful Zionist factions within the current Netanyahu government, the Likud party, as well as within the Israeli military and intelligence establishment.

President Donald Trump has confirmed in no uncertain terms, his support of Israel’s illegal settlements (including his opposition to UN Security Council Resolution 2334, pertaining to the illegality of the Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank). In recent developments, the Trump administration has expressed its recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

“Greater Israel” will be part of the forthcoming March 2020 election campaign. Netanyahu has pledged to annex large parts of the occupied West Bank.

US seeking to carve out Sunni state as its influence in Iraq wanes

Backed into a corner and influence waning, the United States has in recent weeks been promoting a plan to create an autonomous Sunni region in western Iraq, officials from both countries told Middle East Eye.

The US efforts, the officials say, come in response to Shia Iraqi parties’ attempts to expel American troops from their country.

According to chief Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman, half of the troops have returned to active duty, but the other 17 remain under medical observation, The Associated Press reports.

Initially, President Trump said that no troops had been injured during the Jan. 8 attack. When reports of the head injuries surfaced, the president downplayed the severity of the trauma, referring to them as "headaches."

Trump needs to denounce these traitors, specifically by name, and have the appropriate law enforcement agencies investigate them.

When Trump speaks in generalities like, ‘The Democrats want your guns,’ it’s only to make him look good to his USA! USA! crowd.

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.

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.

US administration shifting Daesh terrorists from Syria to Iraq

By Stephen Lendman

Last December, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem said “(t)he Americans…are feeding Daesh, encourag(ing) them, protect(ing) Daesh leaders and help(ing) them move from one area to another.”

At the same time, an unnamed Iraqi official accused the Pentagon of supplying Daesh terrorists in the country with weapons and military equipment.

“The American forces send aid from their bases to the Daesh terrorists in the Makhoul mountains, and their assistance still continues,” the official stressed, adding:

“Iraqi forces seized US weapons during an operation against terrorists in al-Hazar island. US military bases in Iraq are used against the host country and Syria.”

America Escalates its “Democratic” Oil War in the Near East

by Michael Hudson exclusively for the Saker Blog

The mainstream media are carefully sidestepping the method behind America’s seeming madness in assassinating Islamic Revolutionary Guard general Qassim Suleimani to start the New Year. The logic behind the assassination this was a long-standing application of U.S. global policy, not just a personality quirk of Donald Trump’s impulsive action. His assassination of Iranian military leader Suleimani was indeed a unilateral act of war in violation of international law, but it was a logical step in a long-standing U.S. strategy. It was explicitly authorized by the Senate in the funding bill for the Pentagon that it passed last year.

More Than 4 Times as Many Police Officers Killed Themselves Than Were Shot in 2019

The biggest threat to the police are the police.

In 2019, according to the Officer Down Memorial Page, 47 police officers were shot, 7 killed in a vehicular assault, and three died from assault. Another 77 cops died as a result of car crashes, heart attacks, and illnesses. Absent from the database of fallen officers, however, are the 228 cops who ended their own watch. This number is a giant leap from the year before and the fourth consecutive year that it’s risen.

Video Shows Everything Cops Told the Public About Killing Man in His Driveway Was FALSE

San Antonio, TX — If you believed the official story of how the San Antonio Police Department and federal law enforcement agents killed Randall Goodale while serving an arrest warrant earlier this month, you’d think the officers barely escaped with their lives and had no choice but to use lethal force. However, unlike the officers involved in the execution of Goodale, video captured on a nearby surveillance system does not lie.

Russia would annihilate US in a nuclear war

by Jonas E. Alexis

Oliver Stone once again should be commended for asking Vladimir Putin thought-provoking questions. Back in 2017, Stone asked Putin: “In a hot war is the US dominant?” Without hesitation, Putin responded: “I don’t think anyone would survive such a conflict.”

In other words, the Neocons, the war machine, ethnic cleansers in the Middle East, and probably even Donald Trump would not survive a nuclear war with Russia. That means that if Trump is even thinking about attacking Russia, then he is digging his own grave.

Politicians in the United States, said Putin, have been living in a crazy or diabolical world since the beginning of time.

26 Years After the Fall of Apartheid and Implementation of Black Rule, South Africa Experiencing Nationwide Blackouts as Electricity Grid Collapses

Twenty six years after the fall of Apartheid in South Africa and the implementation of black rule (a nation truly proving democracy is nothing more than a racial headcount), we get the consequences of a people rejecting whites and mistakenly believing they can maintain the civilization and infrastructure they have inherited.

Natural News Hacked & Attacked — Founder Mike Adams Reveals the Culprit

After two days of investigations involving several lawyers and a private investigator, we have identified the source of the attacks on Natural News. It turns out our original fears were not quite right. Rather than “cyber warfare,” it turns out that Natural News was the target of industry sabotage.

The source of the sabotage is the vaccine deep state, a secretive, fascist cabal of operators with ties to both Big Pharma and the pro-vaccine branches of the federal government (NIH, CDC, FDA).

Natural News has now learned that this vaccine deep state has gained control over a federal court and is now issuing secret, extrajudicial orders to tech companies that order them to disrupt or deplatform so-called “anti-vax” publishers and news organizations.

Impeach the Impeachers

The articles of impeachment submitted to the US Senate, as the chamber charged historically with representing the wealthiest in the respective states, by the US House of Representatives, the chamber charged with representing the wealthiest individuals among the population, in the case of the servile president of the United States, charged with representing the combination of unelected covert and overt institutions of the US empire, is first of all proof that the United States of America is represented by some of the most poorly educated and simultaneously pretentiously arrogant people in recorded history.

Putin Calls for a New System Guided by the UN Charter… But Is It Possible?

Putin is obviously in the bankers hip pocket if he wants The UN to be a global government. Russia still has a central bank controlled by the international bankers. He is a big promoter of the holocaust story. And like Trump he is hooked up with Chabad and Israel.

After speaking about Russia’s vision for internal improvements, Putin shifted towards the international arena saying:

“I am convinced that it is high time for a serious and direct discussion about the basic principles of a stable world order and the most acute problems that humanity is facing. It is necessary to show political will, wisdom and courage. The time demands an awareness of our shared responsibility and real actions.”

Russia’s New 22350m Frigate Will Have More Firepower than America’s Cruisers and Heavy Destroyers - Reports

While Russia has yet to lay down a new class of destroyer or heavy cruiser since the Soviet era, its expanding shipyards have laid down a number of new frigates under the ambitious Admiral Gorshkov Class warship program. Fifteen of the 5,400 ton ships are planned of which three have been completed and four more are under construction. Supplementing the original Project 22350 Gorshkov Class ships, the Russian Navy is planning to commission a heavy class of frigate which borders the weight range of destroyers, the 7,000 ton 22350m, which is also designated the Gorshkov Class.

China To Ramp Up Shale Gas Production At Home

Despite the fact that United States President Donald Trump declared a truce between the U.S. and China in their more-than-a-year-long trade war in Switzerland this week, we shouldn’t expect to see a quick economic turnaround. The problem, as explained by The Hill in their article “Trump's 'phase one' deal with China won't undo trade war damage,” is that “the positive results of the deal remain on paper and in the future, while the damage caused by the bruising U.S.-China trade war will continue indefinitely.”

THE ANGRY ARAB: US Violated Unspoken Rule of Engagement with Iran

Something big and unprecedented has happened in the Middle East after the assassination of one of Iran’s top commanders, Qasim Suleimani.

The Iranian response was very measured and very specific. It was purposefully intended to avoid causing U.S. casualties; it was intended more as a message of Iranian missile capabilities and their pin point accuracy. And that message was not lost on Israel.

What Trump Didn’t Know About Cultural Locations in Iran

President Donald Trump’s comment about bombing 52 cultural sights of Iran if the Iranians retaliated against the U.S. assassination by killer drone of a top Iranian military officer was walked back the Secretary of Defense Mark Esper. “The U.S. will comply with the Law of Armed conflict” which forbids the destruction of cultural sites, Esper said.

General Qassem Soleimani was killed while reportedly on a diplomatic mission to Iraq to discuss talks with Saudi Arabia.

Trump’s Katyusha Conundrum

Katyushas are short-range, unguided artillery rockets typically fired in salvos from truck-mounted launch-tubes. Iraq’s insurgents deploy three types.

The smallest is 107 millimeters in diameter and 1 meter long. Its 19 kilogram weight includes an 8 kg high-explosive, shrapnel-bearing warhead. The 107mm is often fired from a 12-tube launcher, however, infantry-portable single-tube tripods are common. An experienced crew with a standardized weapon can hit a 400 X 400 meter target from 8 kilometers away. During the Vietnam War the US Army considered the 107mm to be their adversaries’ most formidable weapon.

The 122mm ‘Grad’ Katyusha is 3 meters long and weighs 75 kg. Its warhead spans a third of its length and weighs 18 kg. It has a 20-kilometer range and a 30-meter lethal radius.

220mm Katyushas hurl 100 kg warheads 30 kilometers.

Architect Of CIA's Torture Program Says It Went Too Far

One of the architects of the CIA's torture program for the accused Sept. 11 terrorists testified Wednesday in a Guantánamo Bay courtroom that he eventually came to believe that those torture techniques had gone too far and verged on breaking the law.

Testifying publicly under oath for the first time as part of a pretrial hearing for the criminal case against five accused Sept. 11 terrorists, psychologist and interrogator James Mitchell spoke specifically and graphically about one prisoner, Abu Zubaydah, who was waterboarded more than 80 times at a CIA site overseas. He has been held at Guantánamo for more than 13 years and has never been charged with a crime.
