2…………> On Russian Bear Doorsteps: US Navy Ship


The U.S. will sail a Navy warship into the Black Sea amid heightened tensions over Russia’s seizure of Ukrainian ships and sailors, as the Pentagon requested that the State Department inform Turkey of the possible action.

The U.S. is required to notify the country under the terms of the 1936 Montreux Convention, which governs the movement of military ships through the Turkish Straits, waterways which connect the Mediterranean to the Black Sea. Russia seized two Ukrainian navy ships and a navy tugboat along with 24 crew members off Crimea in late November, accusing the vessels of entering its waters and provoking conflict.

It said the vessels had ignored calls to stop, sparking military action.



3…………> Crooked Drugmaker: Actelion Pharmaceuticals


Pharmaceutical company Actelion Pharmaceuticals US, Inc. (Actelion), based in South San Francisco, California, has agreed to pay $360 million to resolve claims that it illegally used a foundation as a conduit to pay the copays of thousands of Medicare patients taking Actelion’s pulmonary arterial hypertension drugs, in violation of the False Claims Act, the Justice Department announced today.

When a Medicare beneficiary obtains a prescription drug covered by Medicare, the recipient may be required to make a partial payment, which may take the form of a copayment, coinsurance, or a deductible (collectively “copays”).

These copay obligations may be substantial for expensive medications. Congress included copay requirements in the Medicare program, in part, to serve as a check on health care costs, including the prices that pharmaceutical manufacturers can demand their drugs. Under the Anti-Kickback Statute, a pharmaceutical company is prohibited 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 company’s drugs.

This prohibition extends to the payment of patients’ copay obligations. Actelion sells some pulmonary arterial hypertension drugs, including Tracleer, Ventavis, Veletri, and Opsumit (the “Subject Drugs”). The government alleged that Actelion used a foundation, which claims 501(c)(3) status for tax purposes, as an illegal conduit to pay the copay obligations of thousands of Medicare patients taking the Subject Drugs and to induce those patients to purchase them, because it knew that the prices Actelion set for the Subject Drugs could otherwise pose a barrier to those purchases.




4…………> Bin Salman Caught Redhanded: Sen.Graham


“I believe it’s vitally important to U.S. national security interests to make a definitive statement about the brutal murder of an American resident — Mr. Khashoggi — who has three American citizen children,” Senator Graham said in a statement as a group of Republican and Democratic colleagues defied the White House and introduced a resolution that would hold Saudi Arabia’s crown prince accountable for the murder of Jamal Khashoggi.

The resolution was introduced by Republicans Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio and Todd Young and Democrats Dianne Feinstein, Ed Markey, and Christopher Coons. The resolution says the Senate believes Mohammed bin Salman “was in control of security forces” during the killing and has “a high level of confidence” that the crown prince was “complicit” in the murder, based on “evidence and analysis made available.”

Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist, and columnist for The Washington Post went missing after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in early October. After initially saying he had left the consulate alive, Saudi Arabia admitted weeks later that he was killed there, blaming his death on a group of rogue Saudi operatives.



5…………> Jailhouse USA: Half Been In Prison


“These numbers are stunning, all the more so if you think of them not as numbers but as stories like mine. One of the worst parts of growing up with a father in and out of prison was the isolation and shame I felt,” Felicity Rose, FWD director, said in a foreword to a report that alleges nearly half of all US adults have had an immediate family member incarcerated at some point in their lives, according to a new study.

With over 2 million Americans currently in prison researchers also reported that one in seven adults have seen immediate family incarcerated for over a year, with minorities most impacted. Will the tenure of President Trump make any difference? With borders sealed, drug traffic drying up, and the new prison reform act in place, all combined with a booming economy, the answer is undoubtedly “yes,” let’s pray for that.

2…………> “Bin Salman Did It”: Sen. Graham


“The crown prince is a wrecking ball. I think he’s complicit in the murder of Khashoggi to the highest level possible. I find it very difficult to be able to do business because I think he’s crazy. I think he is dangerous, and he has put the relationship at risk. I cannot support arms sales to Saudi Arabia as long he is going to be in charge of this country. The war in Yemen has gotten out of control,” Graham told reporters after the CIA Director Gina Haspel briefed a small group of senators on the killing of Khashoggi, after an outrage by lawmakers for her absence last week during a Senate briefing on Yemen that was attended by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton.

Senator Bob Corker, one of eight senators also at the briefing, told reporters he believed bin Salman was responsible for the murder.

“If he were in front of a jury he’d be convicted in 30 minutes, guilty. I have zero question in my mind that the crown prince, MBS, ordered the killing, monitored the killing,” he added, referring to bin Salman by his initials.


3…………> “End Obama’s Pork”: No To Renewables 


As a matter of our policy, we want to end all of those subsidies, and by the way, other subsidies that were imposed during the Obama administration, we are finishing, whether it’s for renewables and so forth. It’s just all going to complete shortly. I don’t know whether it will end in 2020 or 2021, that is how White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said he expected subsidies of $US2,500–$US7,500 for buying electric cars would end in 2020 or 2021.

Is Trump about to about to ground the Silicon Valley “billionaire incubator” who’s lapdogs borrowed money at near zero rates, just to turn around and invest into enterprises that were shielded from the forces of supply and demand by their “ultra-liberal”, “New World Disorder” exponents of D.C. alligator infested swamp? Don’t bet against it.



4…………> “Sully” Next To Her Master And Best Friend


The service dog of the late US President George H.W.Buch attended his funeral in Washington, D.C., surrounded by former and current government officials, and many ordinary Americans who paused to say “goodbye” to a war hero and admired a member of the “greatest generation.”



5…………> From “Glitz To Death”: US Model


Search teams combing regions Costa Rica in a search for a US tourist named Carla Stefaniak had found a body of a woman in the woods, confirmed to be that of a woman, just days before a scary message was posted on Facebook. Ms. Stefaniak regularly updated her holiday pictures on Instagram, including the recent album of alluring snapshots around a pool surrounded by what appears to be a tropical forest, and many more of her best angles and the beautiful Costa Rican landscape around her.
