Elizabeth Warren proposes criminal penalties for spreading 'voting disinformation' online

Elizabeth Warren proposes criminal penalties for spreading 'voting disinformation' online | 29 Jan 2020 |Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Wednesday released a plan to fight disinformation and to hold tech companies accountable for their actions in light of the 2016 election to ensure a Deep-State dirt-bag wins, overriding the will of the people. "Disinformation and online foreign interference erode our democracy, and Donald Trump has invited both," Warren said in a Tweet Wednesday. "Anyone who seeks to challenge and defeat Donald Trump in the 2020 election must be fully prepared to take this on - and I've got a plan to do it." Warren proposed to combat disinformation by holding big tech companies like Facebook, Twitter and Google responsible for spreading misinformation designed to suppress [anti-Deep State] voters from turning out.

Flight with Americans evacuated from China over coronavirus lands at military base in California --The Department of Defense said it was ready to 'providing housing support' | 29 Jan 2020 | A plane carrying 201 U.S. citizens evacuated from Wuhan, China -- the epicenter of a deadly coronavirus outbreak -- has landed at a military base in California after briefly stopping in Alaska on Tuesday night to refuel. The Boeing 747 with red and gold stripes and no passenger windows landed at March Air Reserve Base on Wednesday morning, just after 8 a.m. local time. The plane was initially headed to Ontario International Airport in San Bernardino County but was diverted to March Air Reserve Base in Riverside County "for the logistics that they have," according to an official... The Department of Defense said it was ready to "providing housing support to Health and Human Services (HHS) as they work to handle the arrival of nearly 200 people, including Department of State employees, dependents evacuated from Wuhan, China."

Trump's lawyers make final arguments in Senate impeachment trial

Trump's lawyers make final arguments in Senate impeachment trial | 28 Jan 2020 | President Trump’s lawyers are poised to wrap up their defense in the Senate impeachment trial Tuesday as pressure increased on Republicans to allow witnesses to testify after the revelations about Ukraine leaked from former national security adviser John Bolton's book. During its arguments Monday, the White House legal team -- featuring presentations from Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz and Ken Starr, the independent counsel who headed the investigation that led to President Bill Clinton's impeachment -- picked apart the House managers' case against Trump. Starr warned senators of the dire consequences of conviction for the nation and the government... Dershowitz directly addressed the allegations in Bolton's unpublished book in the context of the impeachment trial.

Coronavirus: British Airways stop all flights to China after Foreign Office warning

Coronavirus: British Airways stop all flights to China after Foreign Office warning | 29 Jan 2020 | Brritish Airways has grounded all flights to and from mainland china as fears a coronavirus outbreak could become a global pandemic continue to grow.

The BA website shows no direct flights to China are available in January and February. The carrier usually operates daily flights to Shanghai and Beijing from Heathrow.

Ohio health officials investigating 2 possible cases of coronavirus at Miami University

Ohio health officials investigating 2 possible cases of coronavirus at Miami University | 28 Jan 2020 | Two students at Miami University in Butler County are under investigation as possibly having the coronavirus. The virus has sickened more than 4500 people in China, and killed more than 100 people there. As of Tuesday, there were only five confirmed cases in the United States. If confirmed, the two at Miami would be Ohio's first. The Ohio Department of Health last week took the step of declaring the new coronavirus a Class A Reportable Infectious Disease.

Trump lawyer calls Bolton book 'inadmissible,' as defense team wraps impeachment arguments

Trump lawyer calls Bolton book 'inadmissible,' as defense team wraps impeachment arguments | 28 Jan 2020 | President Trump's legal team argued John Bolton’s book manuscript should be "inadmissible" in the impeachment trial and urged an immediate acquittal as they wrapped up arguments before senators on Tuesday. Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow said senators should not pry the trial wide open to new evidence in light of the New York Times' reporting on Bolton’s book manuscript that says Trump explicitly linked a hold on Ukraine aid to an investigation of Joe and Hunter Biden. "You cannot impeach a president on an unsourced allegation," Sekulow said, of reporting on the manuscript. Sekulow dismissed those referring to the Bolton manuscript as new "evidence." "I'd call it inadmissible," Sekulow said.

GOP develops aggressive 'Plan B' in impeachment trial, as several Dems appear to support acquittal - source

GOP develops aggressive 'Plan B' in impeachment trial, as several Dems appear to support acquittal - source | 29 Jan 2020 | With several Democrats openly floating the possibility they might vote to acquit President Trump, congressional Republicans are planning an aggressive "Plan B" strategy in the event some Republicans break off and demand additional witnesses in the president's impeachment trial, Fox News has learned. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., privately said early Tuesday that he wasn't sure there were enough Republican votes to block more witnesses, given that some moderates in the GOP's 53-47 Senate majority were wavering. Any witness resolution would likely require four Republican defections in the Senate, because in the event of a 50-50 tie, Chief Justice of the United States John Roberts is highly likely to abstain rather than assert his debatable power to cast a tie-breaking vote. Late Tuesday night, a Senate leadership source told Fox News that Republicans were specifically assessing the viability of two alternative options. One plan is to amend any resolution calling for a particular witness to also include a package of witnesses that assuredly wouldn't win enough support in the Senate... Another option, the congressional leadership source told Fox News, is for the White House to assert executive privilege to block witnesses, including former National Security Advisor John Bolton.

U.S. Widens Virus Travel Scans, Seeks Entry to Outbreak Zone

U.S. Widens Virus Travel Scans, Seeks Entry to Outbreak Zone --United to suspend most U.S.-China flights starting on Saturday --U.S. health official urges more cooperation from China | 28 Jan 2020 | U.S. health officials told travelers to avoid all non-essential trips to China, ramped up screening at airports and called for more cooperation from their Chinese counterparts as they rush to prevent the spread of the coronavirus that’s claimed more than 100 lives. The U.S. is trying to get front-line public health experts into China so the new, fast-moving pathogen can be better understood. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said he has repeatedly raised that possibility with Chinese officials for weeks and is hopeful a U.S. team will be let in. Meanwhile, United Airlines Holdings Inc. said on Tuesday it would suspend most of its flights between the U.S. and China starting Feb. 1, citing a big drop in demand.

China Death Toll Climbs to 132 as Cases Soar: Virus Update

China Death Toll Climbs to 132 as Cases Soar: Virus Update | 29 Jan 2020 | The novel coronavirus spread further, with the number of confirmed cases in China soaring to overtake the official number of infections in the country during the SARS epidemic. Governments tightened international travel and border crossings with China as they ramped up efforts to stop the spread of the disease. Germany said Tuesday it identified a cluster of local patients infected by a woman from Shanghai who had been visiting Europe. That’s a worrying sign for health authorities who have taken aggressive steps to stop what for now has been mostly a Chinese outbreak from becoming an international one.

Trump's defense did what it set out to do, Robert Ray says

Trump's defense did what it set out to do, Robert Ray says | 29 Jan 2020 | Former federal prosecutor Robert Ray, a member of President Trump's impeachment legal defense team, said the defense team did what they set out to do in their arguments that wrapped up Tuesday and said it is time to trust in the judgment of the senators. "The task at hand is to have a trial to determine whether or not it's appropriate to remove the president from office. Period. End of story," he told Laura Ingraham. "Once you've made that argument...I think it’s time to sit down...and put your faith and trust in [the senators] and respect and abide by their wisdom."

Poll: 75% of voters want witnesses for Senate impeachment trial

Poll: 75% of voters want witnesses for Senate impeachment trial | 28 Jan 2020 | Three-quarters of registered voters think witnesses should be allowed to testify in the Senate impeachment trial, which has reached a crucial inflection point, a new national poll from Quinnipiac University finds. This includes 49% of Republicans who think witnesses should be allowed to testify, 75% of independents and 95% of Democrats. President Donald Trump's legal team ended their opening arguments Tuesday afternoon and the trial now moves on to a 16-hour period for senators to ask questions. Following that could be a vote on whether to bring witnesses, which has long been seen as a critical vote but has taken on new importance in the wake of news reports on former Trump national security adviser John Bolton's book.

Dershowitz calls out House Dems in Trump's Senate impeachment trial

Dershowitz calls out House Dems in Trump's Senate impeachment trial | 28 Jan 2020 | Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz, delivering a spirited constitutional defense of President Trump at his Senate impeachment trial Monday night, flatly turned toward House impeachment managers and declared they had picked "dangerous" and "wrong" charges against the president -- noting that neither "abuse of power" nor "obstruction of Congress" was remotely close to an impeachable offense as the framers had intended. In a dramatic primetime moment, the liberal constitutional law scholar reiterated that although he voted for Hillary Clinton, he could not find constitutional justification for the impeachment of a president for non-criminal conduct, or conduct that was not at least "akin" to defined criminal conduct. "I'm sorry, House managers, you just picked the wrong criteria. You picked the most dangerous possible criteria to serve as a precedent for how we supervise and oversee future presidents," Dershowitz told the House Democrats, including head House impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif.

Pentagon now says 50 service members suffered brain injuries from Iran attack | 28 Jan 2020 | The Pentagon now says 50 American military service members suffered traumatic brain injuries following Iran's Jan. 8 missile attack on a base in western Iraq that was housing the U.S. military personnel. Initially the Pentagon said there were no injuries in the missile attack, but as more symptoms were diagnosed, the number was updated to 11, then 34 and now 50. Officials have acknowledged that it can take time for the concussion-like symptoms to present themselves.

Thousands in line for Trump's rally in Wildwood; crowds began to form on Saturday

Thousands in line for Trump's rally in Wildwood; crowds began to form on Saturday | 28 Jan 2020 | A line that snaked back and forth outside the Wildwoods Convention Center continued to grow early Tuesday as hundreds and hundreds of people from across New Jersey and other states joined to stand in the biting Jersey Shore cold for hours for a chance to see President Donald Trump. Bundled up in sleeping bags, hats and gloves, and sitting on folding chairs many of them planned to toss later, the crowd -- which started to form Sunday afternoon -- quickly grew to a few thousand people trying to be among those admitted inside to see Trump speak tonight.

'Deal of the century': What's in Trump's peace plan for Israel and Palestine

'Deal of the century': What's in Trump's peace plan for Israel and Palestine | 29 Jan 2020 | The proposal for peace in the Middle East unveiled by US President Donald Trump envisions the conditions under which a Palestinian state might be recognized. RT delves into the 180-page 'deal of the century' to see what’s inside. The "Vision for Peace, Prosperity and a Brighter Future" bills itself as "the best, most realistic and most achievable outcome for the parties" right from the start. It says that the 700 or so UN General Assembly resolutions and 100-plus Security Council resolutions have failed to bring peace, while the 1993 Oslo Accords left too many key issues unresolved, "including, among other items, borders, security, refugees and Jerusalem." Trump's vision addresses all those issues -- mostly by siding with Israel.

Joseph Bondy, Parnas's attorney, said his client had received tickets to attend Wednesday's proceedings from Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.). Schumer's office confirmed it offered the tickets... No electronics are allowed in the Senate chamber during the trial.

Plane carrying US evacuees from China amid coronavirus outbreak diverted to March Air Force Base

Plane carrying US evacuees from China amid coronavirus outbreak diverted to March Air Force Base | 29 Jan 2020 | A plane carrying about 210 U.S. citizens evacuated from Wuhan, China--the epicenter of the deadly coronavirus--was diverted Tuesday to California's March Air Reserve Base "for the logistics that they have," an official said. The plane was initially headed to Ontario International Airport in California. Curt Hagman, the chairman of the San Bernandino County Board of Supervisors and a commissioner at the airport, said on social media that the CDC had informed him of its decision to divert the flight. "Ontario International is one of the repatriation airports for the west coast and we are always prepared to receive our citizens abroad in times of emergencies," Hagman said in a video posted to his YouTube channel. "We were prepared but the state department decided to switch the flight to March Air Force Base for logistics that they have."

GOP confident of win on witnesses

GOP confident of win on witnesses | 28 Jan 2020 | Republican senators emerged from a caucus meeting Tuesday voicing confidence they will win a vote later this week that would block new witnesses from being called and end President Trump's impeachment trial this week. While Republican sources acknowledged several senators are wrestling with the question of whether to bring in former national security adviser [Deep-State neocon dirt-bag] John Bolton as a witness, they said Democrats do not have the four GOP votes they need to win such a vote. While it does not appear that Republicans have the votes to reject such a motion yet, GOP senators on Tuesday said they thought the caucus would get there.

Coronavirus: Japan and Germany confirm patients who caught disease did not visit China

Coronavirus: Japan and Germany confirm patients who caught disease did not visit China | 28 Jan 2020 | Two people from Japan and Germany who had contracted coronavirus had not visited the area in China where the deadly viral outbreak originated, authorities have confirmed. One of the patients was a Japanese tour bus driver in his 60s in the city of Nara who had driven two groups of Chinese tourists who had come from Wuhan earlier this month. He was diagnosed with pneumonia on Saturday and has been hospitalised... It comes as Germany's first case of the virus was believed to have been infected by a Chinese colleague who visited his workplace.

Trump allies throw jabs at Bolton over book's claims

Trump allies throw jabs at Bolton over book's claims | 28 Jan 2020 | John Bolton is facing a surge of vitriolic attacks from President Trump's allies after a leaked manuscript revealed that the former national security adviser's unpublished book will dish damaging details about Trump’s contacts with Ukraine. Almost overnight, the president's defenders switched from friend to foe toward Bolton after The New York Times reported Sunday that Bolton's book will claim that Trump wanted to withhold $391 million in Ukraine aid as leverage for investigations that would benefit him politically... Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), a frequent sparring partner of Bolton's, said people should ask whether the former Trump official is a neutral party or "someone who is a very unhappy, disgruntled, fired employee who now has a motive -- a multimillion-dollar motive to inflame the situation?" Trump on Monday denied the account attributed to Bolton's manuscript and accused him of trying to sell books.

Trump proposes a two-state solution for Israel-Palestine in 'win-win opportunity' for both sides | 28 Jan 2020 | Donald Trump has proposed a two-state solution for Israel-Palestine which would see the Palestinian capital located in east Jerusalem, in a move the US president called a "big step towards peace." Trump said that Israel had agreed to negotiate on the basis of a conceptual and detailed proposed map for the first time. If Israel agrees to the proposed map, the US will recognize it, he said. The plan will "more than double the Palestinian territory" and "no Israelis or Palestinians will be uprooted." The US will also "proudly" open an embassy in the new Palestinian capital in east Jerusalem, Trump said.

White House officials called executives at major U.S. carriers on Tuesday, telling them that a temporary ban on China flights is on the table, according to people familiar with those conversations.

Illinois ex-lawmaker charged with bribery in red-light camera program

Illinois ex-lawmaker charged with bribery in red-light camera program | 27 Jan 2020 | A former Illinois state senator was charged Monday with accepting payments in exchange for supporting costly red-light camera programs across the state, according to reports. The U.S. attorney's office in Chicago filed bribery and tax charges against state Sen. Martin Sandoval, who had represented the 11th District since 2003. The 56-year-old Chicago Democrat "corruptly solicited, demanded, agreed to accept and accepted" payments for "continued support for the operation of red-light cameras in the State of Illinois," the document says. The alleged bribery occurred between 2016 and 2019, when, as chair of the transportation committee, Sandoval wielded enormous influence in how state transportation funds were spent.

Hunter Biden agrees to pay monthly child support, ending standoff over contempt

Hunter Biden agrees to pay monthly child support, ending standoff over contempt | 27 Jan 2020 | Hunter Biden has agreed to pay monthly child support retroactive to November 2018, ending a standoff that began after the judge in his Arkansas paternity case ordered him to appear in person for a hearing to explain why he shouldn't be held in contempt. Independence County Circuit Court Judge Holly Meyer noted that the exact amount of child support couldn't be determined "based off the defendant's income," and that modifications to the total amount owed each month could be made. Biden was recently photographed driving a sports car, prompting concerns he was shirking his child-support payments. Contempt proceedings over Biden's failure to turn over financial documents have been delayed until March, giving Biden an opportunity to resolve the issue in the meantime by turning over the information.

Supreme Court allows Trump administration to enforce 'public charge' immigration restriction

Supreme Court allows Trump administration to enforce 'public charge' immigration restriction | 27 Jan 2020 | The Supreme Court will allow the Trump administration to enforce, for now, its "public charge" immigration restriction, lifting a pair of preliminary injunctions issued by federal judges. The Monday order followed a 5-4 split vote that divided the court's conservatives and liberals. At issue is the administration’s rule issued in August that would restrict immigrants entering the United States if the government believes they will rely on public assistance, such as housing or health care benefits. Lower federal courts had blocked the policy from being implemented while the issue is being litigated.
