    Hillary Clinton's suggestion this past week that Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is being "groomed" by Russians to act as a spoiler in the 2020 race may have had the opposite effect of what the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee intended: It's elevated Gabbard's candidacy and may have inspired even more ardent interest in her campaign among Clinton critics.

    Omar is a communist illegal alien muslim who makes her hatred for America clear, Gabbard is a supposed moderate who claims to love her country. Gabbard's attempts to schmooze the rich and powerful don't change the fact that she is insignificant.

    Defense Secretary Mark Esper says that under the current plan all U.S. troops leaving Syria will go to western Iraq and the military will continue to conduct operations against the Islamic State group to prevent its resurgence. His comments were the first to specifically lay out where American troops will go as they leave Syria and what the counter-IS fight could look like. Esper said he has spoken to his Iraqi counterpart about the plan to shift the more than 700 troops leaving Syria into western Iraq. As Esper left Washington on Saturday, U.S. troops were continuing to pull out of northern Syria after Turkey's invasion into the border region. He added that the U.S. withdrawal will be deliberate and safe, and will take "weeks not days." According to a U.S. official on Saturday, about a couple of hundred troops have left Syria so far. The U.S. forces have been largely consolidated in one location in the west and a few locations in the east. More at: https://news.yahoo.com/defense-chief-us-troops-leaving-024248227.html

    U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper said on Friday that no U.S. troops will take part in enforcing the so-called safe zone in northern Syria and the United States "is continuing our deliberate withdrawal from northeastern Syria."Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan earlier on Friday said Turkey will set up a dozen observation posts across northeast Syria, insisting that a planned "safe zone" will extend much further than U.S. officials said was covered under a fragile ceasefire deal. The truce, announced by U.S. Vice President Mike Pence after talks in Ankara with Erdogan, sets out a five-day pause to let the Kurdish-led SDF militia pull out of the Turkish "safe zone." "No U.S. ground forces will participate in the enforcement of the safe zone, however we will remain in communication with both Turkey and the SDF," Esper told reporters, referring to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

    An international monitoring agency has given Pakistan four months to prove it is fighting terrorism financing and money laundering — or it could be put on a damaging global blacklist. Pakistan's government on Friday hailed the FATF's decision, which offers a reprieve to Prime Minister Imran Khan as he works to shore up his country's faltering economy and attract foreign investment and loans. "Thank God, we have been successful," Pakistan's foreign minister, Shah Mahmood Qureshi, told The Associated Press. But the agency's assessment remained grim, expressing "serious concerns with the overall lack of progress by Pakistan" to stop terrorism financing. In a statement after meetings this week at its Paris headquarters, the FATF said Pakistan has addressed only five of 27 measures required to avoid being blacklisted. If Pakistan doesn't act by February, FATF president Xiangmin Lui said the agency could put the country on its blacklist, which currently includes only Iran and North Korea. Pakistan's finance ministry in a statement reiterated the country's commitment to fully implement the action plan. "The Plenary meeting decided to maintain status quo on the FATF action plan," it said, adding that the Pakistani delegation on the sideline of the FATF meeting also briefed various delegation about the measures taken by Islamabad against terror financing. Experts say the move means every international financial transaction with Pakistan will be closely scrutinized and doing business in Pakistan will become costly and cumbersome. International agencies could place restrictions on lending money to Pakistan, including key creditors such as the International Monetary Fund, the Asian Development Bank and the World Bank.

    The highly contagious and deadly African swine fever virus has spread to two more provinces in the Philippines, the world's 10th-largest pork consumer, officials said on Friday.Cases of infections were detected in some areas in Cavite, south of the nation's capital Manila, and in Nueva Ecija on Luzon island. Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla confirmed the cases detected in two villages in his province and said a "lockdown" had been declared to contain the disease. Agriculture Secretary William Dar also confirmed infections in Nueva Ecija, but said they were "limited". More at: https://news.yahoo.com/philippines-detects-african-swine-fever-075754858.html

    President Trump lashed out at the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton on Saturday, quipping that Democrats "need a Green Party more than ever" after Clinton suggested that the third party's 2016 candidate for president was a "Russian asset." In a tweet, the president weighed in on the ongoing controversy sparked by Clinton on Friday when she suggested that Stein was working on behalf of Russia or to aid Russian election interference efforts during her 2016 run for president. Stein has been blamed for winning votes that otherwise could have been won by Clinton. "Crooked Hillary Clinton just called the respected environmentalist and Green Party candidate, Jill Stein, a 'Russian Asset.' They need a Green Party more than ever after looking at the Democrats disastrous environmental program!" Trump tweeted. He returned to the attack later Saturday, slamming Clinton for suggesting both Stein and Gabbard were "Russian asset". "So now Crooked Hillary is at it again! She is calling Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard “a Russian favorite,” and Jill Stein “a Russian asset.” As you may have heard, I was called a big Russia lover also (actually, I do like Russian people. I like all people!). Hillary’s gone Crazy!" he tweeted Saturday night.

    Sometimes the obvious just slips by you. This is one of those times. Crowdstrike reportedly didn’t determine that ‘Russia’ hacked Hillary’s emails until June 2016. So how could Australia’s Alexander Downer know that ‘Russia’ hacked her emails in May 2016? The dates just don’t add up. In May 2016 George Papadopoulos was contacted by Australian Alexander Downer and told you that Russia had Hillary’s emails. But Crowdstrike didn’t investigate Hillary’s emails until June 2016 when they somehow claimed that the Russians had hacked into the DNC.

    A new study conducted in mice explores the previously unknown role of the central amygdala (region of the brain associated with emotional processes) in upgrading and downgrading pain signals in the brain. The study, which was conducted by researchers at the Division of Intramural Research at NCCIH, was published in the journal Cell Reports. The researchers found that there is a “switch” in the central amygdala that can both turn up or turn down pain signals. The “switch” acts more like a “pain rheostat,” similar to a home thermostat that regulates temperature—the pain rheostat reacts to pain signals to regulate pain sensations. Working in mice, the researchers found that activity in neurons that express protein kinase C-delta (CeA-PKCδ) turned up the pain rheostat and demonstrated increase in pain-related responses. Conversely, researchers found that activity in neurons that express somatostatin (CeA-Som) turned down the pain rheostat, inhibiting nociception or the chain of activity in the nerves required to communicate pain. During the experiments, researchers were able to take advantage of molecular genetic approaches that allow them to fluorescently label and manipulate the activity of these two central amygdala cell-types. They found that when they blocked CeA-PKCδ neurons, pain activity decreased. When researchers activated CeA-Som neurons, they observed a marked analgesic response in mice. The researchers noted that these results demonstrate that CeA can amplify or suppress pain in a cell-type-specific manner, which uncovers a previously unknown mechanism underlying bidirectional control of pain in the brain. https://nccih.nih.gov/research/results/spotlight/study-explains-how-amygdala-regulates-pain

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said Saturday that Syrian armed forces should withdraw from an area of Syria near the border with Turkey so that Turkish armed forces can resettle as many as 2 million refugees in the region. A spokesman for Erdoğan told The Associated Press that the resettlement will be impossible without the withdrawal of both Kurdish and Syrian forces from the region, as the refugees currently being housed in Turkey do not wish to return to areas controlled by Syrian President Bashar Assad's forces. Turkey will also discuss the issue with Russia, the spokesman said. More at: https://thehill.com/policy/international/466597-turkey-wants-syrian-forces-to-leave-border-region

    Republican Rep. Francis Rooney (Fla.), who this week refused to rule out impeaching President Trump, announced Saturday that he won't seek reelection. Rooney revealed his decision in a Fox News interview. A spokesman for Rooney confirmed to The Hill that the lawmaker won't run for a third term. "I don't think I really do, and I don't think I really want one," Rooney, 65, said in the interview when asked if he needed a third term. Rooney's district is not considered a swing district, as it was won by President Trump with nearly 60 percent of the vote in 2016. Rooney said he came to Congress to secure money for Everglades projects and for an offshore drilling ban to protect Florida. He concluded he'd met those objectives in his two terms in Congress.
