    China, the same country that gave us the China coronavirus, costing over 100,000 American lives, is also behind much of the bad press related to President Trump and the USA. China’s CCP (Communist Party) created an entity labeled the “United Front” directed to ensure the media in the US is flattering towards China and policies beneficial to China. The United Front also supports Democrat policies that benefit China and pushes the promotion of these policies. We’ve reported numerous times how China’s economy is stalling, if not going backwards. There are numerous measurements that support this position, and yet you...

    On Aug. 14, 2019, a gravitational wave -- a massive ripple through the fabric of space-time -- washed over the Earth. The signal was one of the strongest ever seen by the gravitational wave scientists at the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory and Italy's Virgo observatory. After an alert was sent out moments after detection, teams of astronomers across the world turned their telescopes to the point in space that the wave emanated from. But their searches came up empty. No light, no X-rays, no infrared, no gamma rays. On Tuesday, researchers from the LIGO and Virgo collaborations detail their full...

    Covid-19 may have been circulating in China as early as August 2019, a new study from Harvard Medical School (HMS) claims. The virus, which is widely believed to have originated in a wildlife market in the Chinese city of Wuhan, was first reported to the WHO in late December. However, an analysis of hospital traffic and search engine data in Wuhan indicates that there was early disease activity in the fall of 2019, according to HMS researchers. In a study published on Monday on Harvard University's DASH server, analysts used satellite images of parking lots at six hospitals in Wuhan...

    President Trump on Friday night fired Michael Atkinson, the inspector general for the intelligence community who had deemed urgent a whistleblowers complaint about the presidents actions on aid to Ukraine. In a letter to the top Republican and Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, the president said it is vital that I have the fullest confidence in the appointees serving as inspectors general. That is no longer the case with regard to this inspector general, Mr. Trump said. The president said the firing would take effect in 30 days and he will nominate a new candidate, who must be confirmed...

    United Nations (United States) (AFP) - The UN General Assembly on Thursday approved a resolution calling for "international cooperation" and "multilateralism" in the fight against COVID-19, in the first text to come out of the international body since the outbreak began. The resolution, approved by consensus, also stresses "the need for full respect for human rights" and that "there is no place for any form of discrimination, racism and xenophobia in the response to the pandemic." The UN resolution emphasises the central role of the body in the global health and economic crisis. It was submitted by Switzerland, Indonesia, Singapore,...

    The Trump administration simulated the ability of the United States to handle a flulike pandemic months before the coronavirus turned the scenario into a reality. The Health and Human Services Department led the exercise, known as the "Crimson Contagion," last year in conjunction with dozens of states and federal agencies, according to the New York Times. HHS also invited charitable groups, insurance companies, and major hospitals to take part in the effort. Former Air Force physician Robert Kadlec, who has studied biodefense issues for decades, led the exercise, which imagined a contagious disease that originated in China and spread globally...

    Former vice president Dick Cheney and his daughter Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., are to appear at a lunch fundraiser Monday in support of President Donald Trump's 2020 reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee, according to an invitation to the event. The luncheon fundraiser in Jackson, Wyoming, will feature White House advisers Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, along with acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney as "special guests," according to the invitation, which was obtained by The Washington Post. The invitation does not list the official titles of Mulvaney and the president's daughter and son-in-law, and it clarifies...

    A National Rifle Association leader-turned-critic is meeting with New York investigators...and the NRA wants to be there. The powerful gun lobby asked a New York state judge Friday to let it in the meeting, saying it would be severely prejudiced if privileged information is divulged. NRA lawyers said they reviewed 899 pages of documents from Norths lawyers that were prepared for investigators and found several dozen examples of privileged information that had not been redacted. The NRA is facing several legal battles. The attorney general of Washington, D.C., has subpoenaed the group and its related charitable organization in a probe...

    You might remember that during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings democrats were constantly finding new evidence and last second witnesses. Just when a witness was dealt with and it was time to move on, democrats would magically discover another witness, each succeeding one less credible than the last.Julie Swetnickwas the classic example. Well, its deja vu all over again. We have a new magic act at hand. Back in October we learned that former National Security adviser John Bolton waswriting a bookabout his time in the Trump administration. Publication was said to occurprior to the 2020 election. It seems that date...

    Months before a whistleblower complaint that would spark the Democrat effort for impeachment, a shadowy liberal group founded and staffed by Obama administration alums and former Democrat congressional staffers launched an outside investigation into whether President Trumps allies were seeking foreign interference from Ukraine in the 2020 elections. The group, American Oversight, began investigating the issue in May more than two months before the whistleblower filed a complaint alleging Trump was using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country to investigate one of the Presidents main domestic political rivals. The groups purpose is to...

    As the black SUV came to a stop on 33rd Street in Manhattan, its lights flashing, a pale hand stretched through the open window of the passenger door and gave a little wave. It was attached to Rudy Giuliani, who smiled from behind his tortoiseshell sunglasses. He apologized for being late. Couldnt go on sidewalks like I used to, he said, mourning a perk of his past life as mayor. It was early in the afternoon on Sunday, December 8, and Giuliani had just returned from Ukraine, where he said he was looking for information to undermine the case to...

    So wrong in so many ways is how Gordon Wood, the Pulitzer Prize-winning historian of the American Revolution, characterized the New York Timess 1619 Project. James McPherson, dean of Civil War historians and another Pulitzer winner, said the Times presented an unbalanced, one-sided account that left most of the history out. Even more surprising than the criticism from these generally liberal historians was where the interviews appeared: on the World Socialist Web Site, run by the Trotskyist Socialist Equality Party. The 1619 Project was launched in August with a 100-page spread in the Timess Sunday magazine. It intends to reframe...

    Yet another staffer for Rep. Adam Schiff served as a fellow for the Atlantic Council, a think tank that is funded by and works in partnership with Burisma, the natural gas company at the center of allegations regarding Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden. Sean Misko has been described as close friends with Eric Ciaramella, whom Real Clear Investigations suggests is the likely so-called whistleblower. Misko reportedly joined Schiffs staff at the House Intelligence Committee in August the same month the so-called whistleblowers complaint was filed after first reportedly interfacing with a staffer for Schiffs office.

    A pair of Russians pretending to be the defense minister of Turkey tricked Sen. Lindsey Graham into two calls where he discussed President Donald Trump and US policy on Turkey, according to reports released Thursday. The call was actually from Alexey Stolyarov and Vladimir Kuznetsov, who made a name for themselves making prank calls to high profile Americans and Europeans according to Politico, which shared recordings of the calls. The pair go by nicknames Lexus and Vovan, and some people suspect they could have ties to the Kremlin and Russian intelligence services, Politico reports. Graham spokesman Kevin Bishop confirmed the...
