Donald Trump publicly spars with nation's top coronavirus expert Dr Tony Fauci as he demands vaccine in a 'couple of months' - and epidemic chief tells him: 'Like I told you, a year.'

President Donald Trump pushed pharmaceutical executives on Monday to develop a coronavirus within 'a couple of months' – as the U.S. death toll reached six.

But he was warned by his own most senior expert, Dr. Tony Fauci, who told the president directly that he had repeatedly told him it would take at least a year.

'We're working very hard to expedite the longer process of developing a vaccine. We're also moving with maximum speed to develop a therapy so that we can help people recover as quickly as possible and a lot of recovery going on,' the president said during a one-hour briefing in the Cabinet room with executives from 10 pharmaceutical and bio-tech companies.

Out of this world: 1st extraterrestrial protein found INSIDE a meteorite, study claims

A team of physicists in the US believe they may have discovered the first extraterrestrial protein known to man, within a meteorite that fell to Earth some three decades ago.

If verified, the find – which has yet to be peer reviewed – would be the latest in a series of milestones bringing us closer to discovering extraterrestrial life. Ribose, a type of sugar found in RNA, was recently identified on a meteor.

Death Toll From Coronavirus in South Korea Reaches 28, Over 4,800 Infected

The outbreak of pneumonia caused by a new strain of coronavirus originated in the Chinese city of Wuhan, Hubei province, last December and has since claimed the lives of more than 3,000 people worldwide.

600 new cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-2019) have been confirmed in South Korea, bringing the total number of cases to 4,812, the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Tuesday. The total number of fatalities has reached 28.

Nike has temporarily closed its European headquarters in the Netherlands due to an employee contracting coronavirus.

Approximately 2,000 employees from 80 different countries work at the massive facility in Hilversum, North Holland.

"We are aware of an employee coronavirus case," Nike told Reuters in a statement.

"Out of an abundance of caution, we are conducting a deep cleaning of the campus."

Nike also closed its worldwide headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, after the state's first presumed coronavirus case was discovered in nearby Lake Oswego.

"While we have no information indicating any exposure to Nike employees, out of an abundance of caution, we are conducting a deep cleaning of campus," a company spokesperson told local media.

"All WHQ buildings and facilities, including fitness centers, will be closed over the weekend."

There are 18 confirmed coronavirus cases in the Netherlands, at the time of this writing.

News Media Attacks Vitamin C Treatment of COVID-19 Coronavirus

First of all, the naysayers are too late. Vitamin C is already being used to prevent and treat COVID-19 in China and in Korea. And it is working.

Here is a verified official statement from China's Xi'an Jiaotong University Second Hospital:

"On the afternoon of February 20, 2020, another 4 patients with severe coronavirus pneumonia recovered from the C10 West Ward of Tongji Hospital. In the past 8 patients have been discharged from hospital. . . [H]igh-dose vitamin C achieved good results in clinical applications. We believe that for patients with severe neonatal pneumonia, and for critically ill patients, vitamin C treatment should be initiated as soon as possible after admission. Numerous studies have shown that the dose of vitamin C has a lot to do with the effect of treatment. High-dose vitamin C can not only improve antiviral levels, but more importantly, can prevent and treat acute lung injury (ALI) and acute respiratory distress (ARDS)."

Greek Orthodox church in Lesvos vandalised by refugees

Images are emerging of a Greek Orthodox church in Lesvos which was vandalised by refugees.

On Monday, more than 500 refugees grouped together to head down to the port of Mytilini from Moria camp.

The group were confronted by members of MAT (Tactical Police) along the way, and resorted to stoning the Greek authorities in order to continue in their journey, only to be met with chemical and flash grenades.

Residents on Lesvos remain united and are trying to maintain a strong front against the situation unfolding on their island.

Turkey in Syria: Down a Blind Alley in an Unwinnable War?

Turkish Forces Will Leave Syria – One Way or Another

Turkish troops will not be able to remain indefinitely in Syria. Their proxies will eventually be liquidated and the positions of Turkish forces surrounded by Syrian forces. In many areas of Idlib this is already the case. Additional Turkish troops and supplies fed into losing battles and what is ultimately a lost war will only delay the inevitable undoing of Turkish interests in Syria.

Ankara could – on the other hand – begin aligning its policies with the reality of what is happening in Idlib and expand its cooperation with Russia and Iran regarding the Syrian conflict – incrementally withdrawing support from militant groups, encouraging them to disarm and surrender, and gradually handing over Turkish positions within Syria to the actual military, government, and people of Syria.

How does the coronavirus attack the human body? Scientists reveal the deadly illness kills off lung cells and can cause the immune system to go 'haywire'

The coronavirus could damage people's kidneys and send their immune systems 'haywire' as well as infecting the lungs, according to scientists.

More than 90,000 people have now been infected with the disease, which is known to cause serious lung damage and deadly pneumonia.

It does this by attaching to and reproducing in tissue inside the lungs, where it kills cells in the process of spreading.

Coronavirus cases 'will surge in their thousands by NEXT WEEK' and three 'critical' weeks were lost in containing the spread because CDC tests failed

A New York doctor has warned coronavirus cases in the United States will surge into the thousands by next week after a female healthcare worker in her 30s became the first confirmed case in the state.

Dr Matt McCarthy, who is a staff physician at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan, also claimed he doesn't have the tools to properly care for patients because of the lack of coronavirus tests being made available to hospitals.

Health officials in New York have been scrambling to get their own coronavirus testing kits up and running after getting stuck with faulty tests from the federal government that they said left them unable to diagnose people quickly.

An Iranian official has dismissed President Donald Trump's offer of help in fighting the coronavirus, which on Monday claimed the life of a senior aide to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Abbas Mousavi said Monday that the U.S. is seeking to use the virus outbreak as part of its propaganda campaign against Iran to undermine national unity.

"Since the outbreak of the virus in Iran, we have been observing the U.S.-led anti-Iranian propaganda campaign and know about the measures the Americans have taken to reduce Iranian nation's morale," Mousavi told reporters, according to the Mehr News Agency.

Mousavi added that Tehran is "doubtful" about the U.S. offer of help and accused Washington of hiding its political motives behind the proposed cooperation. "We do not need them," Mousavi said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is unfortunate, that the US government has, historically,and nearly pathologically, given the Iranian government so many reasons to mistrust anything the US might do, even if it is a gesture that at least, on the surface, looks humanitarian enough in its actual intent.

And to the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, as an American who does care about her country very intensely, and wishes peaceful self-determination for all countries of the earth, I would say the following; sir, this is perhaps a time to put down past, and prevailing, upsets with the US (and I do understand that right now, they are MANY), and let us encourage all of our brothers and sisters in our scientific communities to work together, responsibly, to find answers as to why this pandemic spread out of control so so rapidly; what its true nature is; and how to effectively,and intelligently, find a safe vaccine which will immunize all of humankind from this plague.

You have no idea who I am, or that I even exist; but I do read, and post from, frequently, and there is one thing I do know about the Iranian people; they care, very much, for their families, and want to keep them well and healthy.

I am respectfully requesting that you might want to rethink this decision; and to the US government, if there is a little bit of relenting here on the Iranian side, please honor and respect that.

Missouri Farmer Wins $265 Million Verdict Against Monsanto

A Missouri peach farmer notched a rare courtroom victory this month, defeating the former Monsanto Co. and chemical giant BASF in the first of what is expected to be a series of court fights over claims that the companies are responsible for pesticide damage that has wiped out orchards, gardens, and organic farm fields in multiple states.

On February 14, a unanimous jury awarded Bill Bader and his family-owned Bader Farms $15 million in compensatory damages. The following day, they added on another $250 million in punitive damages to be paid by Bayer AG (Monsanto’s German owner) and BASF. The jury found that Monsanto and BASF conspired in actions that created what Bader’s attorney called an “ecological disaster” designed to increase profits at the expense of farmers such as Bader.

The Limits of Force: A Bayonet in the Back Will Not Restore China’s Economy

Force cannot restore legitimacy, trust or confidence, nor can it magically erase the consequences of a still-unfolding national trauma. The Chinese authorities threatening to punish workers who refuse to return to work are getting a lesson in the limits of force in an unprecedented national trauma: a bayonet in the back will not restore the legitimacy and confidence that have been lost. There are two enormous blind spots in conventional media coverage of the pandemic: 1. The limits of force in restoring China’s economy to pre-pandemic levels. 2. The longer term (i.e. second-order) consequences of the immense trauma experienced by the Chinese people. While the media focuses on questionable statistics and economic claims–factories are already back to 60% capacity, etc.

Smith is entirely correct in his assessment here.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What we at WRH want to do, is spread awareness, and not panic.

That being said, you may want to consider some reasonable precautions, and do some prepping, if you have not already. Consider your local big-box store your "friend" right now, and think about doing some stocking up, just in case. It is always better to have, and not need, rather than the converse.

If you, those you care about, and/or your pets take any meds, you might want to talk to your doctor about having more than necessary in your medicine chest; make sure you have potable water, storable food; and ways to cook if something goes south with your utility system.

Again, all of the above is reasonable, non-panic-inducing ways to keep yourself (and those you care about) safe.

President Trump authorized new travel restrictions and warnings Saturday – and said he’s even looking at closing the southern border – in response to the coronavirus outbreak that has claimed the first American life, while assuring the nation at an all-hands-on-deck press conference there’s “no reason to panic.”

Trump announced new strict travel "edicts" affecting Iran, Italy and South Korea and Trump confirmed he's looking to potentially tighten the U.S.-Mexico border.

"Yes, we are thinking about [the] southern border, we have received a lot of power on the southern border over the last couple of years from the courts but we are looking at that very strongly," Trump said at a press conference.

The rare appearance in the White House press briefing room came shortly after news of the first death in the United States from the new virus and a terrible week on the stock market over fears of the outbreak.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What he is talking about doing is absolutely reasonable, given where clusters of the disease are cropping up; and yes, including the Southern Border closure makes sense; but my question is, until there is a viable vaccine, will it be enough?!?

For me, the jury is out on that one; please observe the standard protocols, like frequent hand washing.

But for people living in a "hot zone", where a number of these cases have been diagnosed, you may want to research, and get, some colloidal silver; some probiotics (because much of human immunity comes from our gut 8 health benefits of probiotics); and some Vitamin C, to assist your immune system in protecting you from getting ill, as much as might be possible.

Worried families blast Washington nursing home where one man has died from coronavirus and 50 more are ill for 'not testing patients and ignoring phone calls' - as it emerges facility has history of failing to control the spread of illness

The Washington state nursing home where the second US man to die from coronavirus was a resident has been slammed by worried families who claim they are not being kept informed about the conditions of their loved ones.

Six coronavirus cases have been confirmed at the Life Care Center in Kirkland, including one resident in his 70s who later died at hospital, while more than 50 staff and residents have shown symptoms and will be tested.

It has also emerged that the facility has been slammed for failing to control the spread of viruses in the past.

One distraught woman has come forward blasting the facility's handling of the outbreak, telling how she has been kept in the dark over her husband’s condition and treatment at the home.

Authorities announce 2nd coronavirus death in US

Health officials in Washington state said Sunday night that a second person had died from the coronavirus — a man in his 70s from a nursing facility near Seattle where dozens of people were sick and had been tested for the virus.

Researchers said earlier the virus may have been circulating for weeks undetected in Washington state.

In a statement, Public Health—Seattle & King County said the man died Saturday. On Friday, health officials said a man in his 50s died of coronavirus, the first death from the virus in the U.S.. Both had underlying health conditions, and both were being treated at a hospital in Kirkland, Washington, east of Seattle.

The United States badly bungled coronavirus testing—but things may soon improve

Speed is critical in the response to COVID-19. So why has the United States been so slow in its attempt to develop reliable diagnostic tests and use them widely?

The World Health Organization (WHO) has shipped testing kits to 57 countries. China had five commercial tests on the market 1 month ago and can now do up to 1.6 million tests a week; South Korea has tested 65,000 people so far. The U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in contrast, has done only 459 tests since the epidemic began. The rollout of a CDC-designed test kit to state and local labs has become a fiasco because it contained a faulty reagent. Labs around the country eager to test more suspected cases—and test them faster—have been unable to do so. No commercial or state labs have the approval to use their own tests.

Watch: SpaceX's "Starship" Explodes On Launch Pad During Routine Pressurization Test

When the world first caught a glance of SpaceX's "Starship" super rocket, many joked about it looking like an abandoned grain silo wrapped in tin foil.

OK, we admit. That was mostly us joking that it looked like an abandoned grain silo wrapped in tin foil. But look at it...

Now it turns out that had it actually been an abandoned grain silo, it may have performed better during SpaceX's pressure test of the "vehicle" that was held right before the weekend.

Instead, the product of Elon Musk innovation wound up blowing up on the launch pad at the company's South Texas facility, after being tested for pressure with inert liquid nitrogen. The photographs from the morning after show the extent of the damage on the rocket, which we're certain will not be reused.

Trump And The Politics Of Coronavirus

I don’t disagree that China, assuming that the numbers they’ve published are any more real than a lot of their economic numbers, has shown remarkable power to stop the spread of the disease.

And they have done so so as to disrupt supply chains all across the world. This week the equity markets finally came to terms with the real world effects of such a disruption, even if the disease itself is, in the end, controllable and the response to it to this point, overblown.

I’m not saying it is one way or the other. I’ve heard every conspiracy theory about this virus you can imagine. It speaks directly to the power of rumor and the ability for people absent good information to make up stories that fit their personal bias.

Panic grips the West Coast and coronavirus hotspot California, with anxious shoppers stocking up on canned food and Clorox wipes after first US death from the deadly disease in Seattle

Panic is setting in for residents on the West Coast as California becomes a coronavirus hotspot, Washington state reports the first US death from the virus and Oregon officials announce that an elementary school employee has tested positive for the disease.

Anxious shoppers descended on California supermarkets, stocking up on supplies like bottled water, canned food and Clorox wipes.

The state has become a coronavirus hotspot, with more than half a dozen residents diagnosed with the disease in recent days.

Late last week, two Northern California residents were revealed to be confirmed cases despite having no known contact with anyone else who was infected.

Yes, it is worse than the flu: busting the coronavirus myths

Wearing a face mask is not an iron clad guarantee that you won’t get sick – viruses can also transmit through the eyes and tiny viral particles, known as aerosols, can still penetrate masks. However, masks are effective at capturing droplets, which is the main transmission route of coronavirus, and some studies have estimated a roughly five-fold protection versus no barrier. If you are likely to be in close contact with someone infected, a mask cuts the chance of the disease being passed on. If you’re just walking around town and not in close contact with others, wearing a mask is unlikely to make any difference.

Washington state declares emergency over coronavirus as CDC warns risk is ‘increasing’

Washington Governor Jay Inslee has declared a state of emergency after three new cases of COVID-19 and one death resulting from the coronavirus were confirmed there on Saturday. Inslee said that the time had come for “proactive measures,” adding that state officials have been preparing ever since the first US coronavirus case was confirmed in Snohomish County. The measure will also allow the authorities to use the National Guard if necessary.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have so far reported that the two new coronavirus cases were linked to a Life Care Center in Kirkland, a suburb of Seattle, adding that those infected were a patient and a health care worker. Both of them are alive. However, it is still unclear how exactly they were infected.

New Coronavirus Cases In California, Oregon, & Washington Suggest Community Spread: Officials

New coronavirus cases confirmed in the Pacific Northwest suggest the new virus may be spreading in the community in the United States, officials said.

Washington state, Oregon, and California officials confirmed in total four new cases on Friday. Officials do not know where or how three of the patients became infected, making them “possible” instances of community spread, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Community spread means that people acquire COVID-19, the disease caused by the new virus, through an unknown exposure in the community.

If the Coronavirus is not huge and spreading rapidly, why has the Chinese government totally quarantined (i.e., locked down, sealed off) 23 major cities with a total population of 125 million people – the largest such quarantine/lock-down in world history? (And it may even be larger than that by the time you read this.) The Chinese military has surrounded these cities; has blocked all exit roads with huge truckloads of dirt and boulders, and has orders to shoot to kill anyone trying to escape. If it’s not huge, why has the Chinese government declared up to seven-year prison sentences for anyone putting non-government approved information on the coronavirus on social media or the Internet?

Climate Change is Not Decimating Bees

Several media outlets -- namely National Public Radio -- are touting a tall tale that climate change is decimating bee populations throughout North America. The (false) alarm is based on a February 7 study published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). The study, however, is deeply flawed and does not change the very low likelihood of climate change seriously impacting bee populations.

Sen. Cotton: China Is 'Still Lying to the World' about Coronavirus | Virus Can Live Up To 9 Days Outside The Body

China has engaged in rampant malpractice, dishonesty, and deceitfulness from the very beginning. If they hadn’t concealed the outbreak of this virus in early December from the World Health Organization and from their own people. They might not have only protected their own people more effectively, but prevented it from spreading so far around the world already. They are still lying to their own people. They are still lying to the world. They are responsible for the spread of this virus outside of their own borders. That’s one reason why we need to take a new look, once again, at our entire relationship with China, in particular, the relationship we have in trade, where we have so many of our medical devices and equipment, or even basic pharmaceuticals manufactured in China.”

Pentagon races to counter coronavirus threat on military forces

The Pentagon is taking care to prevent a slip in national security and readiness following the steady global spread of the coronavirus that has the Department of Defense (DOD) holding off on a military exercise, quarantining fleets and curtailing troop movement.

As cases of COVID-19 continue to rise, DOD in the last week has canceled a joint military exercise with South Korea, restricted access to public areas at Army installations in Italy and ordered all ships that have visited countries in the Pacific region to remain at sea for 14 days, essentially a self-quarantine.

U.S. Central Command has also ordered a stop to all nonessential travel in the Persian Gulf region.

First coronavirus death in USA, Washington declares State of Emergency as Trump administration flounders with narrative control

The first U.S. death of the coronavirus is now confirmed in Washington State, and Gov. Jay Inslee has issued a statement lamenting the “sad day in our state.”

What’s even more sad, of course, is the fact that the CDC withheld coronavirus tests from state-level public health labs, allowing the virus to spread while nearly all U.S. states conducted exactly zero tests. Now that states have suddenly been granted permission to start conducting tests, it’s no surprise that a slew of new outbreaks and infection confirmations has already begun.

Seattle's lack of housing forces families to live in their cars: "I reached a point where I didn't see any hope"

The Generals are stealing all our money for wars.10 trillion missing from the Pentagram and Americans are living on the streets. Why do we put up with these scumbags!

Turkey Asks NATO to Join Its War Against Syria and Russia

Note: The events that led to this critical impasse were reported by me last night, and that report thus continues here, in order to provide context to these events.

The spokesperson for the Islamist party of Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan has called upon all of NATO to go to war against Syria for Syria’s having killed dozens of Turkey’s troops in order for Syria to defeat Turkey’s invasion and military occupation of Syria’s Idlib Province, which borders on Turkey. Going to war against Syria would mean going to war also against Russia, which is in Syria to protect Syria’s sovereignty over its own territory. If the United States accepts that Turkish proposal, then World War III will consequently result.

Gerson Therapy

Dr Max Gerson


One of the most important creators of Natural Cancer Cures in the early 20th century was Dr Max Gerson. After suffering from excruciating migranes during his student days, he developed a unique regimen of nutritious organic foods and was finally able to cure himself completely of migraines.

Next, he applied his unique therapy to heal tuberculosis and later cancer. He discovered that toxicity and nutrient deficiency were the primary factors leading to cancer. Thus, the essence of his therapy was a plant based diet, avoiding meat, animal fats, excess protein and sodium while alleviating the buildup of toxins in the body. Supplements include potassium iodide, CoQ10, liver extract, pancreatic enzymes, Niacin, B12, vitamin C and flaxseed oil.
