Today the Senate began impeachment trial proceedings. Just a reminder that House Democrats completely failed to produce any evidence proving that President Trump did anything wrong. Now the Senate must reject this sham for what it is: A baseless political smear.

2…………..> Robing Medicare Recipients Scam: Big Pharma Slammed

 

Patient Services Inc. (PSI), a foundation based in Midlothian, Virginia, agreed to pay $3 million to resolve allegations that it violated the False Claims Act by acting as a conduit to enable certain pharmaceutical companies to provide kickbacks to Medicare patients taking the companies’ drugs by paying the patients’ co-payments, the Department of Justice announced today. The reason for that is when a Medicare beneficiary obtains a prescription drug covered by Medicare Part B or Part D, the beneficiary may be required to make a partial payment, which may take the form of a co-payment, co-insurance, or deductible (collectively, co-pays). Congress included co-pay requirements in these programs, in part, to encourage market forces to serve as a check on health care costs, including the prices that pharmaceutical manufacturers can demand for their drugs. The Anti-Kickback Statute prohibits pharmaceutical companies from offering or paying, directly or indirectly, any remuneration – which includes money or any other thing of value – to induce Medicare patients to purchase the companies’ drugs, and it prohibits third parties, such as copay foundations, from acting as a conduit for such payments.

“The Department is committed to ensuring that foundations are not used as mere conduits to funnel kickbacks from pharmaceutical companies to Medicare patients and to increase company profits while avoiding an important cost-control aspect of the Medicare program,” said Assistant Attorney General Jody Hunt of the Department of Justice’s Civil Division.

“We will continue to combat unlawful kickback arrangements and their pernicious influence on our health care system.”

3…………..> Trump’s Impeachment Charade: Report

 

The first full day of Donald Trump’s Senate impeachment trial was a 13 hours marathon, after which senators finally agreed to the rules that will govern how the rest of the trial plays out, and today, it’s expected we’ll begin to hear the opening arguments, which you can follow in our live blog below.

Schiff is still calling for witnesses and evidence, undeterred by the 11 votes against them yesterday, as he appealed to Republicans to “ensure a fair trial,” by voting to hear from witnesses and see documents he’ll be referring to throughout the trial.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell kept a provision in the organizing resolution that allows for witness and evidence votes after questioning.

The expected timeline is as follows:

3 days of opening arguments from the Democratic House Managers
3 days of opening arguments from Trump’s defense team (starting on Saturday US time. 
16 hours (most likely two days) of questioning from the Senators, then votes on witnesses and evidence. At this point, there’s nothing to suggest Republicans will change their minds and let that happen.

4……………> China Coronavirus Scare: Deaths Surge

 

Chinese authorities have urged people to stop traveling in and out of Wuhan, the city at the center of a new virus outbreak that has killed 17 people, and those living in the city of 8.9 million people have also been told to avoid crowds and minimize public gatherings.

The new virus has spread from Wuhan to several Chinese provinces, as well as the US, Thailand and South Korea, with 440 confirmed cases, with the origin a seafood market that “conducted illegal transactions of wild animals”, as authorities confirmed the number of dead had almost doubled – from nine – in the space of a day. All fatalities so far have been in Hubei, the province around Wuhan.

Officials in Hong Kong also reported the territory’s first two cases.

Meanwhile, in Geneva, the World Health Organization’s emergency committee is meeting to assess the global risks posed by the virus and decide if it should be declared an international public health emergency – as happened with swine flu and Ebola.

5…………> You Ain’t Welcome Here: Trump’s New Travel Ban

 

President  Trump said he plans to add countries to his existing travel ban to bar more foreign nationals from entry into the US, an expansion of the current ban – signed by him two years ago – closed US borders to citizens from seven countries, most with Muslim majorities, including Libya, Iran, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, North Korea and Venezuela countries from EU, Asia and Africa are also considered.

Mr. Trump confirmed that more countries will be added:

“You see what’s going on in the world, our country has to be safe,” he told reporters at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland on Wednesday.

In June 2018, the Supreme Court upheld Mr. Trump’s ban, rejecting findings from lower courts that deemed the ban unconstitutional.

2…………..> A Facebook Tip: End Of Child’s Misery

 

A woman identified as Dawn Greenwood, 39, who videotaped a 9-year-old girl forcibly performing sex acts on her husband Shon Greenwood, was sentenced to 30 years in federal prison, the statutory maximum.

The case came to light when Facebook notified the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that Mr. Greenwood had posted sexually explicit images of minors on his account.

“This sentence sends a clear and loud message to individuals who commit these reprehensible crimes,” said Ryan Spradlin, special agent in charge of HSI Dallas.

“When criminals post their abuse online or in other public forums, they continue to victimize innocent children who are already suffering emotionally and physically. HSI remains steadfast in our dedication to find and bring to justice perpetrators who exploit children and abuse their trust.”

3……………> Virus Outbreak Over China: Who’s The Culprit?

 

An unidentified strain of a new type of coronavirus was registered in the Chinese city of Wuhan, Hubei province, earlier this month, with the new infection having symptoms common with the flu or pneumonia, including weakness, fever and coughing, but health professionals are  powerless to stop the rising number of exposed people.

Health officials in Beijing confirmed two new cases of a new coronavirus, and Chinese health watchdogs have confirmed 139 people displaying symptoms of the mysterious illness, with over a dozen of those among the first group of the afflicted reportedly remain in critical condition. At least two persons have died due to the infection.

4……………> Graham Hits Pelosi: Priestess Of Church Of Holy Hell

 

Senator Lindsey Graham, chair of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, slammed Speaker of the House Nancy, “Anyone caught urinating in front of my mansion will be deported to Arizona” Pelosi’s earlier claim that she “always prays” for President Trump, accusing her of orchestrating what he characterized as a “church of holy hell” against the president during his presidency.

“I like Nancy Pelosi, I’ve known her for years, and I think she is a very religious person, but when it comes to Donald Trump, Nancy Pelosi may pray for him privately, but she’s orchestrated the church of holy hell from the time Trump has been sworn in to now has been one thing after another,” said Graham.

Graham charged that Pelosi and the US House of Representatives took 48 days to impeach the president, denying him basic rights  to “call any witnesses” or “have a lawyer present” during the high-profile House Intelligence Committee hearings.

“This has been a partisan railroad job. And you’re asking for fairness in the Senate? You violated every norm of what we do,” declared the Senator, who has been sworn in as an impartial juror for Trump’s Senate removal trial.

5…………> Deep State Billionaire Incubator: Stealing Women’s Money?

 

The world economic system is sexist, and women in low-income communities in Uganda, Zimbabwe, India, the Philippines and Kenya spend on average one year more during their lifetime on care work activities than women from better-off households, as an 8-year-old girl spends 30% more time helping out at home than her twin brother, with the percentage rises to 50% when she turns 10.

Globally, 42% of women working age are outside the labor market because of their unpaid care responsibilities — and only 6% of men, according to a report presented at on the annual World Economic Forum in Davos by Oxfam expert Ellen Ehmke:

“We don’t imply that these 11 trillion dollars should be paid to caregivers, but they have to receive material security for their work. That is what we as society have to recognize and finance.”

George Sorbane Quotes:

1. “So Alex was counting the days until he would step on the holy soil of Boston, ready to breathe the cold Atlantic air and sense the spirits of those remarkable people about whom he had read so much with nearly religious admiration, walk the streets in their footsteps, and pray in the churches where they had found peace and solace in times of fateful junction.”― “The Endless Beginning”

2…………> US On Dangerous Path: President Trump

 

President Trump’s legal team issued a  furious response ahead of opening arguments in his impeachment trial, rejecting of the impeachment charges, and encouraged the Senate to reject “poisonous partisanship”, while House Democrats led by Nancy, “Anyone caught urinating in front of my mansion will be deported to Arizona” Pelosi  presented their case in forceful fashion, saying the President betrayed public trust with behavior that was the “worst nightmare” of the founding fathers, and released a document supporting their charges.

“President Donald J. Trump used his official powers to pressure a foreign government to interfere in a United States election for his personal political gain. [He] then attempted to cover up his scheme by obstructing Congress’s investigation into his misconduct,” House impeachment managers wrote.

“The Senate should convict and remove President Trump to avoid serious and long-term damage to our democratic values and the nation’s security,” the document said, for the first time formally calling for the Senate to convict the President and remove him from office.

Mr. Trump’s legal team issued a resounding rejection of the impeachment charges, which were read out in the Senate earlier in the week during formalities setting the stage for the trial.

“President Trump categorically and unequivocally denies each and every allegation in both articles of impeachment,” the Trump lawyers’ document said.

“This is a brazen and unlawful attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election and interfere with the 2020 election — now just months away,” they argued in a six-page document released on Saturday.

3……………> China’s Forgotten Children: In The Millions

 

Nearly 7 million children are “left behind” in rural areas while both parents worked in big cities to support the family, with the wealth divide and the strict household registration policy that limits the free migration of the population in China to blame for the social phenomenon.

“We haven’t spoken much for many years. We started to quarrel whenever we tried to talk to each other, so we just gave up on talking if [there was] nothing important,” a forgotten child told abc.net.au reporter.

“I know many people are in a similar position with me, with parents working away and being brought up by grandparents.

“But what I can’t let go of is parents of others at least come back home every Spring Festival. My parents haven’t come back for 10 years. They care too much about money.”

4……………> A Mayhem In Beirut: Arrests & Injuries

 

More than 370 people have been injured during several hours of clashes between Lebanese security forces and protesters that rocked central Beirut on Saturday, as police fired tear gas and unleashed water cannon on the crowds, and protests erupted following the government imposition of the “Whatsapp tax.”
People struggle to withdraw more than a few hundred dollars from banks each week, with the country sinking deeper into an economic crisis, and anger has boiling over at a ruling elite who have dominated power since the 1975-1990 civil war.

The Lebanese Red Cross said it had treated 220 people who were wounded on both sides on Saturday, taking 80 of them to hospital. The Civil Defense said it had given first aid to 114 others and taken 43 people to hospital, and The Internal Security Forces said 142 police were injured.

2…………..> Trump’s China Deal: Improve Market Stability, Or A Prelude To Crash?

 

According to International Monetary Fund (IMF) Managing Director Dr. Kristalina Georgieva,  the newly signed China-U.S. phase-one trade deal will reduce the uncertainty that has impeded global economic growth, but the cumulative effect of the U.S.-China trade conflict, provided no actions taken, could mean a loss of 0.8 percent of global GDP, or around 700 billion U.S. dollars by 2020.

“It is a welcoming sign that we now have the phase-one deal, sign in terms of reducing some of the uncertainty,” she said at an event hosted by Peterson Institute for International Economics, a think-tank based in Washington D.C.

Dr. Georgieva warned that trade tensions were “taking a toll” on global growth, at a time when the global economy was going through a “synchronized slowdown.”

“What we are seeing now is that we’ve some reduction of this uncertainty, but it’s not eliminated,” Georgieva said.

“We would see shrinkage of this negative impact, but not the eradication of this impact.”

3……………> Relentless Misery Down Under: Bush-fires, Floods & More

 

Vicious storms and torrential rain have wreaked havoc in the fire-devastated states of New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria, and despite the wet weather, hundreds of blazes continue to burn and many areas remain dry, as several major highways were cut off, while theme parks closed in southeastern Queensland after some of the heaviest rain in months fell in the state. Local media showed video footage of dozens of vehicles being swept away in flash flooding.

Standing water reached 13 inches in some areas and Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology tweeted that over 100 millimeters of rain was expected to fall across the night and early Saturday morning in many other locations.

The Bureau of Meteorology for Queensland also told drivers to “take care on the roads — if it’s flooded, forget it.”

New South Wales, where 4.9 million hectares have been destroyed by fire, saw power cuts due to the heavy rainfall.

Firefighters in the southeastern state were hopeful the weather change would bring much-needed respite for areas where dozens of bush fires still raged.(abc.net.au)
