    So much can change in just 24 hours. It was just yesterday that China's top twitter troll and Beijing propaganda voice to the west, Global Time Editor in Chief Hu Xijin was downplaying the risk from the coronavirus outbreak, comparing it to the SARS epidemic in 2003, and saying that "during SARS epidemic, even many medical staff contracted virus and died of it. It doesn't look the same this time." Chinese society is mobilizing to deal with the new coronavirus. But its risks of human-to-human transmission and fatality rate appear lower than SARS. During SARS epidemic, even many medical staff contracted virus and died of it. It doesn't look the same this time. https://t.co/k43u1R4d5c — Hu Xijin 胡锡进 (@HuXijin_GT) January 20, 2020 Oops, because just a few hours later, we got confirmation that at least 15 medical staff had in fact contracted the virus which now appears to be spreading human-to-human, as six people have died among 291 confirmed cases in China, eliminating any attempts to further downplay the significance of the coronavirus epidemic which has reportedly infected hundreds of people across China. So in a dramatic 180-degree reversal, the same twitter troll now had an entirely different message to the word: not only is "the epidemic expanding" and "concerns are mounting", but more importantly, "It is inevitable that people will cut their trips during Spring Festival and holiday consumption will be hit." Coronavirus cases have been found in other places out of Wuhan, Hubei Province, indicating the epidemic is expanding. Concerns are mounting. It is inevitable that people will cut their trips during Spring Festival and holiday consumption will be hit. — Hu Xijin 胡锡进 (@HuXijin_GT) January 21, 2020 So what happened? It appears Beijing decided to not let a perfectly good crisis go to waste, and just as "trade war" was used as a 2019 scapegoat on which to blame the slowdown in the economy, an economy which is rapidly slowing down for vastly different reasons, it will now blame the coronavirus epidemic on the ongoing slowdown of the Chinese economy. The reason reason for the slowdown? China's ghastly debt load of over 300% of GDP...

    The day after a massive gathering of gun-rights activists at the Virginia Capitol, the state Senate on Tuesday advanced legislation that would allow authorities to take guns away from people deemed dangerous to themselves or others.The Democratic-led Senate gave preliminary approval to approved the so-called “red flag” law. The measure is set for a final vote in the Senate, likely Wednesday, before going to the House. Republicans blasted the bill as an assault on gun rights and civil liberties. Democrats said the bill was a thoughtful measure that would preserve due process while also protecting people against potential gun violence. Also on Tuesday, the Democratic-led House killed several pro-gun measures in a subcommittee meeting. Those GOP-backed measures included a bill to allow people to carry concealed handguns without a permit and to repeal a limit on carrying weapons in churches and other places of worship.

    The Trump administration is planning to add seven countries - Belarus, Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Myanmar, Nigeria, Sudan and Tanzania - to its travel ban list, U.S. media reports said on Tuesday.Some countries will face bans only on some visa categories, the Wall Street Journal reported. The list of countries was not final and could yet change, website Politico said. U.S. President Donald Trump said in an interview with the Journal that he was considering adding countries to the travel ban, but declined to state which ones. Politico said an announcement was expected as early as Monday. A senior Trump administration official said that countries that failed to comply with security requirements, including biometrics, information-sharing and counter-terrorism measures, faced the risk of limitations on U.S. immigration.

    Oil production in the seven most prolific shale plays in the United States is set to increase by 22,000 bpd in February to 9.2 million bpd, the Energy Information Administration said in the latest edition of its monthly Drilling Productivity Report. Production in set to decrease in the Anadarko, Eagle Ford, and Niobrara regions by a combined 28,000 bpd next month, but are more than offset by increases in the Permian and Bakken plays, which together should add 50,000 bpd in February, according to the EIA.

    With the Illinois primary less than two months away, a spokesman for the Illinois State Board of Elections has admitted that some non-citizens of the United States may have illegally voted in the 2018 election because of the new automatic voter registration process implemented in the state.Spokesman Matt Dietrich told WCIA on Monday that 574 non-U.S. citizens were inadvertently registered to vote in Illinois, adding, “We do know that some of them voted in 2018.” He surmised that some may have been legal citizens who incorrectly filled out the state form to vote, although it appears much if not all of the problem was that Illinois permits non-citizens to obtain driver’s licenses. Democrat Secretary of State Jesse White’s office acknowledged the mistake in a letter to the State Board of Elections on December 18. Spokesman Henry Haupt of White’s office stated, “For whatever reason that technological programming error did not properly remove the individuals. The individuals who are applying for driver’s license were inadvertently pooled into the automatic voter registration.” More at: https://www.dailywire.com/news/illinois-dems-admit-mistake-allowed-non-citizens-to-vote-in-2018 But Zippy keeps telling me this is impossible.:confused:

    Gun Owners of America (GOA) announced the passing of its founder, Hubert Leon “Bill” Richardson, on January 13, calling him a “feisty” Republican from Southern California who challenged the powers that be. Called “Wild Bill” by his friends, Richardson served as a California state senator for 23 years, from 1966 to 1989. He failed in efforts to gain a seat in the U.S. Congress, but left a legacy in how successful political campaigns are run. Blessed with an effervescent personality and a sense of humor, he galvanized efforts to replace three liberal state Supreme Court justices, including Rose Bird, the only Supreme Court justice in California history to be removed from office by voters. When threats to the Second Amendment appeared in the mid-1970s, Richardson formed Gun Owners of California, using a strategy that remains in place today. Says its current executive director Bill Paredes (Richardson’s son-in-law), “Any time a legislator talked against the Second Amendment, Richardson would recruit candidates and help fund them, train them, and run them against some of these incumbents. They didn’t like that but they had no means to fight back except not to sponsor legislation like that anymore.” Richardson teamed up with Richard Viguerie, the master developer of direct-mail campaigns in political races, and brought in millions from small donors to fund those efforts. Richardson worked with then-Governor Ronald Reagan in overhauling California’s welfare program and capping state spending (Proposition One failed but passed five years later as Proposition 13). He served on the board of the National Rifle Association, but his experience with that group led him to found Gun Owners of America, which now boasts more than two million members. Its purpose is “to preserve, protect, and defend the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, including promoting and developing a greater understanding and awareness regarding the importance of firearms ownership, and conducting education and policy related to such rights.” The GOA uses its vast network of Second Amendment lawyers to challenge anti-gun legislation in the courts so effectively that former Congressman Ron Paul calls GOA “the only no-compromise gun lobby in Washington.”

    An unruly squirrel is defying Disney stereotypes by terrorizing one Houston neighborhood, according to KPRC-TV. “We usually don’t go outside in the daytime because he comes out in the daytime,” Sharlene French-Amezquita told the TV station. The feral animal who’s anything but friendly has even attacked two people, leaving them bloodied, bruised and in need of stitches. “When I stepped outside the door he leaped on me and bit my arm, I pulled him off, threw him to the ground, and tried to get in the house,” said French-Amezquita. “I couldn’t get in the house because he came back, he bit this leg.” She has the stitches and bite marks to prove it. The squirrel also attacked Katie Herrera who lives in the Bridgeland Shores neighborhood. “It’s scary,” Herrera said. “I’m just very grateful that it actually attacked me and not my children.” Residents have contacted both animal control and Texas Parks & Wildlife. They were told until someone traps the squirrel, they can’t move it. https://dfw.cbslocal.com/2020/01/16/bloodthirsty-squirrel-leaves-2-hospitalized-neighbors-hiding-out-during-daytime/

    A network of archive documents on the history of the Second World War accessible to the whole world will be created in Russia, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in his annual State of the Nation Address to the Federal Assembly (parliament) on Wednesday. "The largest and most complete collection of archive documents, film footage and photo materials on the Second World War will be created in Russia and will be accessible to our citizens and the whole world," he said. According to the Russian leader, establishing such an archive is "our duty as a victorious power and responsibility to future generations.". https://tass.com/society/1108825

    Google critic, 66, who testified that the tech giant’s 2016 ‘election meddling gave 2.6m votes to Hillary Clinton’ now suggests his wife’s fatal car crash was not an accident. His wife’s vehicle swerved into oncoming traffic, which just happened to be a double tractor trailer carrying two loads of cement. From the article: “On Sunday he tweeted: ‘Last year, after I briefed a group of state AGs about #Google’s power to rig elections, one of them said, “I think you’re going to die in an accident in a few months.” A few months later, my beautiful wife #Misti died a violent death. Makes you wonder…’ About a month after his testimony, Epstein shared an article that claimed he had been ‘killed’ by a Google Street View vehicle.”

    Anonymous voting would empower the deepstate, so of course you support it. The people have a right to know how their Senators vote on impeachment because it will always be political in addition to judicial.
