Betrayal — Poetry for Palestine

What can be more treasonous or more poisonous than inviting a hard core ULTRA ZIONIST rabbi, (who supports the GENOCIDE of Muslims, and promotes the DESTRUCTION of Al Aqsa mosque to build the temple of Dajjal), to lecture and poison the minds of innocent, impressionable, young Muslim students, during “Discover Islam Week”, no less? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ […]

CDC Elevates Travel Advisory For All Of China To Highest Level (3) – Warning

Credit CDC


Over the past 3 weeks, as word of an unusual cluster of pneumonia cases in Wuhan, China has morphed into a growing epidemic across China, the CDC has issued increasing stringent travel advisories – first for Wuhan City – then expanding to all of Hubei province.

Tonight – reflecting the growing concern over the situation in China – the CDC has expanded their highest Level-3 (Avoid All Non-Essential Travel) warning to all of Mainland China.


Key Points

  • CDC recommends that travelers avoid all nonessential travel to China.
  • Chinese officials have closed transport within and out of Wuhan and other cities in Hubei province, including buses, subways, trains, and the international airport. Other locations may be affected.
  • Older adults and people with underlying health conditions may be at increased risk for severe disease.
  • The situation is evolving. This notice will be updated as more information becomes available.

What is the current situation?

  • CDC recommends that travelers avoid all nonessential travel to China. In response to an outbreak of respiratory illness, Chinese officials have closed transport within and out of Wuhan and other cities in Hubei province, including buses, subways, trains, and the international airport. Additional restrictions and cancellations of events may occur.
  • There is limited access to adequate medical care in affected areas.

A novel (new) coronavirus is causing an outbreak of respiratory illness that began in the city of Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. This outbreak began in early December 2019 and continues to grow. Initially, some patients were linked to the Wuhan South China Seafood City (also called the South China Seafood Wholesale Market and the Hua Nan Seafood Market).

Chinese health officials have reported thousands of cases in China and severe illness has been reported, including deaths. Cases have also been identified in travelers to other countries, including the United States. Person-to-person spread is occurring in China. The extent of person-to-person spread outside of China is unclear at this time.

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses. There are several known coronaviruses that infect people and usually only cause mild respiratory disease, such as the common cold. However, at least two previously identified coronaviruses have caused severe disease — severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) coronavirus and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) coronavirus.

Signs and symptoms of this illness include fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. This novel coronavirus has the potential to cause severe disease and death. Available information suggests that older adults and people with underlying health conditions or compromised immune systems may be at increased risk of severe disease.

In response to this outbreak, Chinese officials are screening travelers leaving some cities in China. Several countries and territories throughout the world are reported to have implemented health screening of travelers arriving from China.

On arrival to the United States, travelers from China may be asked questions to determine if they need to undergo health screening. Travelers with signs and symptoms of illness (fever, cough, or difficulty breathing) will have an additional health assessment.

Boris Johnson hints at compromise over Huawei and 5G

Little tiny ones, so tiny, even tweezers would have to be small tiny ones.

PM says solution will allow technological progress but not jeopardise US relationship

Boris Johnson has suggested he will arrive at a compromise solution over the decision on whether to let the Chinese company Huawei build parts of the UK’s 5G network in the face of US warnings that it would compromise intelligence-sharing.

During a university visit, the prime minister hinted that he would give Huawei some role in building the high-speed networks, but he faces considerable scepticism from Conservative backbenchers who used a parliamentary debate to raise concerns.

After the revelation that the ex-national security adviser’s book implicates Trump, senators Romney and Collins spoke out

After a bombshell report about John Bolton’s forthcoming book, key Republican senators moved on Monday towards supporting testimony from the former national security adviser in Donald Trump’s impeachment trial.

On Sunday night, the New York Times reported that the manuscript version of Bolton’s memoir, The Room Where It Happened, contains the claim that the president told Bolton in August 2019 to keep withholding nearly $400m of security aid to Ukraine, until officials in Kyiv helped investigate Trump’s political rivals.
