Laurie Garrett: World Can't Let Racist Attitudes Impact Handling of Coronavirus Outbreak

The Chinese doctor who warned the government about a possible coronavirus outbreak has died after contracting the virus while working at Wuhan Central Hospital. Thirty-four-year-old ophthalmologist Li Wenliang warned his fellow medical workers about coronavirus on December 30. He was then investigated by police and accused of "making false comments."

Risk of Nuclear War Rises as U.S. Deploys a New Nuclear Weapon for the First Time Since the Cold War
Staff | democracynow.org | 2020-02-07
The Federation of American Scientists revealed in late January that the U.S. Navy had deployed for the first time a submarine armed with a low-yield Trident nuclear warhead. The USS Tennessee deployed from Kings Bay Submarine Base in Georgia in late 2019. The W76-2 warhead, which is facing criticism at home and abroad, is estimated to have about a third of the explosive power of the atomic bomb the U.S. dropped on Hiroshima. The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) called the news "an alarming development that heightens the risk of nuclear war." We're joined by William Arkin, longtime reporter…

Roaming Charges: When Satan Quotes Scripture

The caucus system has been fetishized by the political pundit class for decades as an example of small state "town hall" style democracy in action. In fact, they're anti-democratic, often controlled by party bosses, where, lacking secret ballots, people bullied into voting with the mob. Less than 10 percent of registered Democrats turn out for these spectacles, far less than 60 percent you'd expect to vote in a primary.

Human Rights Watch found that some 138 people deported to El Salvador were murdered by gang members, police, soldiers, death squads or ex-partners between 2013 and 2019.

The U.S. Senate has acquitted President Trump of two impeachment charges in just the third presidential impeachment trial in U.S. history. Trump was accused of abusing power and obstructing Congress to aid his re-election campaign by pressuring Ukraine to investigate his political rival Joe Biden. Every Democratic senator voted to remove President Trump from office, but they were joined by just one Republican: Senator Mitt Romney of Utah, who supported impeaching Trump on abuse of power. Romney became the first senator ever to vote against his own party's president in an impeachment trial. President Trump respond…

PHONY liberal media turns Republican Romney into HERO for sticking it to Trump (just like it did McCain & Bush)
rt.com | 2020-02-06
Mitt Romney is the latest token Republican being hoisted up on the shoulders of the mainstream media thanks to his "courageous" decision to defy Donald Trump by voting with Democrats to impeach the president. | You would think the Utah senator single-handedly defeated Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) and then rescued a few kittens out of trees on his way home the way the media is writing about him. | The New Yorker declared that the former presidential candidate "seized" a chance to "rewrite his own place in history" with his impeachment vote. | An opinion piece in the Washington Post deemed the decision "cou…

Republicans Have Weakened Congress in Order to Protect Trump
Staff | truthout.org | 2020-02-06
In the United States, money is synonymous with merit. There is a presumption at the core of capitalism's narrative that if you are wealthy, you earned it through virtue and "hard work," not theft or nepotism. This mythology helped fuel the deregulation that led to the financial crisis, and it is also part of President Trump's rise. Trump's wealth earned him prestige in the eyes of millions, who in turn handed him the power of the presidency. And Trump's wealth and power has now led Congress to declare him ab…
