Coronavirus Hits 15% Fatality Rate, 83% Infection Rate for Those Exposed; Lancet Publishes Early Study That Points to Alarming Consequences for Humanity

Coronavirus Hits 15% Fatality Rate, 83% Infection Rate for Those Exposed; Lancet Publishes Early Study That Points to Alarming Consequences for Humanity --If the infection rate stands at 83%, this pandemic will be impossible to contain. | 25 Jan 2020 | Earlier today, the Taiwan media began reporting on a new mainland Chinese study that specifically looked at the individuals involved in the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak. According to this news, which is widely circulating in the Taiwan press and is based on a study published in The Lancet, the Wuhan coronavirus fatality rate has leaped to 15%, and the infection rate among those exposed is 83%. These numbers are virtually unheard of in the world of microbiology and infectious disease transmission. It means that 15 out of every 100 infected people will die. It also means that 83 out of 100 exposed people will become infected and able to transmit the disease to others...The story is from TaiwanDaily.net and states the following (translated):

Hong Kong and Chinese researchers published the latest research on "New Coronavirus 2019" (referred to as "Wuhan pneumonia") in the medical journal "Lancet" on the 24th. Chinese experts pointed directly to the disease. The [fatality] rate is fifteen percent. Hong Kong experts confirmed for the first time that Wuhan pneumonia can be transmitted from person to person, and patients may not have surface symptoms. Taking a Shenzhen seven-person home with six people as an example, the analysis shows that the attack rate is as high as 83% and the incubation period is three to six days It is expected that a large number of cases will break out in China within a week, and the next two weeks will be a crucial period to prevent any place from becoming "another Wuhan".

Spy Court Admits FISA Warrants Against Carter Page Were 'Not Valid' --The FISA court's top judge wrote in a secret ruling on January 7 that at least two of the four spy warrants against Carter Page were invalid and not lawfully authorized. | 23 Jan 2020 | Authority granted to the federal government to secretly wiretap and spy on former Trump affiliate Carter Page was "not valid," the nation's top spy court noted in a secret ruling penned earlier this month. The order from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), which was created and authorized by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), was initially signed and issued on January 7, 2020, but was not declassified and released until Thursday afternoon. Judge James Boasberg, the current federal judge presiding over the FISA court, wrote in his order that at least two of the four FISA applications against Carter Page were unlawfully authorized. Additionally, according his order, the Department of Justice similarly concluded following the release of a sprawling investigate report on the matter by the agency's inspector general that the government did not have probable cause that Page was acting as an agent of a foreign power.

Lindsey Graham will oppose subpoena of Hunter Biden

Lindsey Graham will oppose subpoena of Hunter Biden | 24 Jan 2020 | Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman [Deep State dirt-bag] Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) says he will vote against a motion to subpoena Hunter Biden if a majority of colleagues agree next week that additional witnesses and documents need to be summoned for President Trump's impeachment trial. If Republican colleagues introduce a motion to subpoena former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Graham said "I vote against it." Republican lawmakers such as Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and John Kennedy (R-La.) have threatened to weaponize balance the debate over witnesses by forcing the Bidens into the impeachment spotlight.

Expert says coronavirus is spread through eyes as killer disease 'shuts down China'

Expert says coronavirus is spread through eyes as killer disease 'shuts down China' --Wang Guangfa, who contracted Coronavirus but since recovered, says protective eye wear as well as mouth masks are a must | 24 Jan 2020 | A top medic who contracted Coronavirus says the deadly respiratory disease is so contagious it can be transmitted through the eyes. Wang Guangfa, who was a leading figure in helping China fight Sars in 2003, himself caught the virus but has since recovered. Mr Wang says he believes he became infected because he did not have protective eyewear. The respiratory specialist at Beijing's Peking University First Hospital had reportedly been ridiculed in some parts of the media after he contracted the disease despite saying it was "preventable and controllable" two weeks ago. The expert has now claimed that he may have contracted the disease because of a lack of eye protection when visiting fever clinics and isolation wards in Wuhan, in Hubei province, where the outbreak emerged.

Trump becomes first president to speak at March for Life: 'Every life brings love'

Trump becomes first president to speak at March for Life: 'Every life brings love' | 24 Jan 2020 | President Trump on Friday became the first sitting president to address the annual March for Life rally in Washington, appealing to the anti-abortion movement with a call to protect the sanctity of life while accusing Democrats of becoming more "radical" on the issue. The president, who for years was pro-choice, has since embraced a pro-life position and made clear Friday he plans to continue that agenda as he seeks re-election. Underscoring Trump's stance, his administration hours earlier moved to challenge California over a rule that mandates insurance plans cover elective abortion.

Trump says he will 'save' Social Security after signaling openness to benefit cuts

Trump says he will 'save' Social Security after signaling openness to benefit cuts | 24 Jan 2020 | President Trump on Thursday sought to assure his followers on Twitter that he would protect Social Security benefits after Democrats seized on an interview in which he indicated he would be open to cutting entitlement earned benefit programs down the road. Trump told CNBC in an interview on Wednesday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, that he would "take a look at" rolling back entitlements "at the right time" before quickly pivoting to discuss the strength of the economy. But the indication that he was open to cutting government programs like Social Security and Medicare provided Democrats with an opening that Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) latched onto. "The president promised that unlike other Republicans, he wouldn't touch Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare. He's already broken that promise and gone after Medicare. Now it looks like Social Security is in the president's crosshairs as well," Schumer said at the outset of a press conference to discuss the Senate impeachment trial.

Liberal super PAC to run digital ads slamming Trump over Medicare comments

Liberal super PAC to run digital ads slamming Trump over Medicare comments | 24 Jan 2020 | American Bridge, a liberal super PAC, is launching a series of digital ads criticizing President Trump's recent comments indicating he would be open to cutting entitlement earned benefit programs in the future. Starting Friday, the digital ads will run in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania -- all key battleground states that Trump won in 2016. "Donald Trump made it clear this week that he'd put Medicare and Social Security on the chopping block, jeopardizing the livelihoods of countless seniors," Shripal Shah, the vice president of American Bridge, said in a statement. "This raises the stakes even higher for hard-working Americans, and why we're going to remind them that Donald Trump’s attacks on these critical, hard-earned benefits are a complete betrayal of the very people he promised to help," he added.

Susan Collins asked Justice Roberts to intervene after Nadler late-night 'cover-up' accusation

Susan Collins asked Justice Roberts to intervene after Nadler late-night 'cover-up' accusation | 23 Jan 2020 | Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) wrote a note to Chief Justice John Roberts on Wednesday morning, moments before he admonished the House impeachment managers and President Trump's defense team for a fiery exchange between Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) and White House counsel Pat Cipollone around 1 a.m. Collins later revealed in an interview with the press that she wrote the note to the justice asking him to make sure that the Senate rules on what she believed were unsettling comments apply to the House Judiciary Committee chairman. The rule would strike the words of a senator, should they impute a colleague. Nadler accused Republican senators of participating in a "cover-up" after voting against amendments that would have allowed them to bring witnesses to the trial.

Schiff pleads to Senate GOP: 'Right matters. And the truth matters.'

Schiff pleads to Senate GOP: 'Right matters. And the truth matters.' | 24 Jan 2020 | Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the lead House impeachment manager, made an impassioned effort to break through to Senate Republicans on Thursday night in his closing argument by exhorting them to remove President Trump from office because "you know you can’t trust" him "to do what's right for this country." Senate Republicans have said for months that there are nowhere close to 67 votes in the upper chamber to convict Trump on articles of impeachment, yet Schiff, the California Democrat who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, pleaded with them to follow their consciences.

There are 63 cases being monitored in the U.S. that stretch across 22 states, including the first patient in Washington state and the new case in Illinois, said Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. Officials said the new patient, a woman in her 60s, is doing well and is in stable condition.

China built a lab to study SARS and Ebola in Wuhan - and US biosafety experts warned in 2017 that a virus could 'escape' the facility

China built a lab to study SARS and Ebola in Wuhan - and US biosafety experts warned in 2017 that a virus could 'escape' the facility --The Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory is located about 20 miles away from the Huanan Seafood Market and some have wondered if the outbreak's epicenter is coincidental. --The Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory is the only lab in China designated for studying dangerous pathogens like SARS and Ebola --Ahead of its January 2018 opening, biosafety experts and scientists from the US expressed concerns that a virus could escape the lab --In 2004, a SARS virus 'leaked' from a lab in Beijing | 23 Jan 2020 | Scientists warned in 2017 that a SARS-like virus could escape a lab set up that year in Wuhan, China, to study some of the most dangerous pathogens in the world. Now, a SARS-like coronavirus has infected more than 800 there, spread to at least 10 other countries and killed 25 in Wuhan and nearby provinces. China installed the first of a planned five to seven biolabs designed for maximum safety in Wuhan in 2017, for the purpose of studying the most high-risk pathogens, including the Ebola and the SARS viruses. Tim Trevan, a Maryland biosafety consultant, told Nature that year, when the lab was on the cusp of opening, that he worried that China's culture could make the institute unsafe... In fact, the SARS virus had 'escaped' multiple times from a lab in Beijing, according to the Nature article.

Mueller's Convictions in Question After FISA Court Admits at Least 2 Spy Warrants Against Carter Page Were 'Not Valid'

Mueller's Convictions in Question After FISA Court Admits at Least 2 Spy Warrants Against Carter Page Were 'Not Valid' | 23 Jan 2020 | The FISC [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court] admitted in a secret order that at least two of the spy warrants against Carter Page were not lawfully authorized. Presiding FISA judge James Boasberg wrote in a January 7 order which was not declassified and released until Thursday, that the last two FISA warrants on Carter Page dated April 7, 2017, and June 29, 2017, were not valid. The June 2017 FISA warrant was signed by former DAG Rod Rosenstein and Former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe. Rosenstein signed the June 2017 FISA warrant a month after he wrote the memo authorizing the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller -- and 20 pages of this FISA application are still redacted. Did Robert Mueller actually use information gathered in real time by the illegal wiretaps on Carter Page? If so, this could pose a huge problem for Mueller's cases against Trump officials because the wiretaps are now officially invalid.

Wuhan, a city of more than 11 million people in east-central China, planned to shutdown outbound flights and trains Thursday to contain the disease that has sickened hundreds and killed 17 in the country, The Associated Press reported Thursday. The Air Force's 374th Medical Group at Yokota posted an alert to social media the same day, stating that the World Health Organization had been informed of a cluster of cases of pneumonia of unknown cause detected in Wuhan.

China coronavirus infections soar to 830 with 25 deaths as WHO says it's too early to declare global emergency | 24 Jan 2020 | The World Health Organization (WHO) held off designating a new fast-spreading coronavirus as an international health threat, but did deem it a crisis within China, where the pathogen has infected some 830 people and killed 25. After two days of meetings, WHO determined it was a "bit too early" to label the outbreak an international health emergency on Thursday at a conference in Geneva, despite the rapidly rising disease toll...China's National Health Commission updated the latest figures on the virus's impact across the country on the heels of the WHO decision, confirming a total of 830 infections and 25 fatalities, with an additional 8,420 "close contacts."

Yang: Trump followers 'kind of like me'

Yang: Trump followers 'kind of like me' | 23 Jan 2020 | Entrepreneur and Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang joked Thursday that he is President Trump's "worst nightmare" heading into the 2020 elections and that his supporters "kind of like me." "You know who's figured out that I'm the worst nightmare for Donald Trump in the general? Donald Trump," Yang said at a town hall in Iowa Thursday. Yang continued, saying that the president has "tweeted about every candidate in the field except for me," for three reasons. "One, he knows his followers kind of like me," Yang said...

As this happens, the university says they continue to stay in close communication with the Tennessee Department of Health.

White House Rolls Out New Rules to End 'Birth Tourism'

White House Rolls Out New Rules to End 'Birth Tourism' | 23 Jan 2020 | The Trump administration will implement new rules that aim to prevent pregnant foreign nationals from visiting the U.S. for the sole purpose of giving birth on U.S. soil. The White House announced rules Thursday meant to crack down on "birth tourism," where foreign pregnant women enter the U.S. on a tourist visa in order to give birth, giving their child automatic citizenship. Under the upcoming guidelines, pregnant women applying for B visas -- otherwise known as nonimmigrant visitor visas -- may have to prove that they have a specific purpose for traveling to the U.S. other than giving birth.

US informant may have received taxpayer funds to spy on Trump campaign, Grassley says

US informant may have received taxpayer funds to spy on Trump campaign, Grassley says | 23 Jan 2020 | The Department of Defense may have used taxpayer funds to pay longtime informant Stefan Halper, a Cambridge University professor, to recruit members of the Trump campaign as sources in the run-up to the 2016 election, Finance Committee Chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said in an explosive letter on Wednesday. Grassley, writing to James Baker, the director of the Office of Net Assessment (ONA) at the Defense Department, or DOD, also flagged other suspicious payments to Halper -- including some for DOD contracts that he may not have performed, and others from "unknown" foreign entities. (In response to a lawsuit last year alleging that he was part of a smear campaign to discredit the Trump campaign, Halper claimed a kind of immunity ordinarily afforded to government agents.)... In one DOD contract awarded in September 2015, Grassley noted, "Professor Halper lists former Deputy Foreign Minister for Russia, Vyacheslav Trubnikov, as a consultant and advisor to a paper delivered" to ONA. That's significant, Grassley went on, because Trubnikov is a "known Russian intelligence officer, who was listed by Christopher Steele as a source in the now-debunked Steele dossier, which was used as a predicate to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to surveil Trump campaign adviser Carter Page."

Texas A&M student being tested for Chinese coronavirus, Brazos County officials say

From 2017: Inside the Wuhan, China, lab poised to study world's most dangerous pathogens

Lo and behold, a novel coronavirus emerges from the same city in China: From 2017: Inside the Wuhan, China, lab poised to study world's most dangerous pathogens --Maximum-security biolab is part of plan to build network of BSL-4 facilities across China --Future plans include studying the pathogen that causes SARS | 22 Feb 2017 | A laboratory in Wuhan is on the cusp of being cleared to work with the world's most dangerous pathogens. The move is part of a plan to build between five and seven biosafety level-4 (BSL-4) labs across the Chinese mainland by 2025, and has generated much excitement, as well as some concerns. Some scientists outside China worry about pathogens escaping, and the addition of a biological dimension to geopolitical tensions between China and other nations... The SARS virus has escaped from high-level containment facilities in Beijing multiple times, notes Richard Ebright, a molecular biologist at Rutgers University in Piscataway, New Jersey.
