    (CNN)The President of Emirates tells CNN that the airline was not aware of some of the potential 5G rollout issues until yesterday morning, calling the situation "one of the most delinquent, utterly irresponsible" he has seen in his aviation career.Major international airlines are scrambling to modify or cancel flights to the United States amid uncertainty about potential interference between new 5G cell phone services and critical airplane technologies. Emirates has canceled flights to nine U.S. destinations today.International airlines suspend some US flights over 5G uncertaintySpeaking to CNN's Richard Quest today, Emirates president Sir Tim Clark said that they were not aware of the issues until yesterday morning "to the extent that it was going to compromise the safety of operation of our aircraft and just about every other 777 operator to and from the United States and within the United States."Transportation regulators had already been concerned that the version of 5G that was scheduled to be switched on could interfere with some airplane instruments, and many aviation industry groups shared those fears — despite reassurances from federal telecom regulators and...
    An eight-months pregnant migrant was rescued by firefighters after she got stuck while attempting to cross from Mexico to the United States in the frigid Rio Grande. The Nicaraguan woman, who was identified only as Jorleni, initially was spotted around 4:45am Sunday standing on an islet in the river by drivers in Piedras Negra, Coahuila. First responders were alerted.  The 23-year-old woman then waded across the river, where temperatures hovered around 33 degrees, before a group of firefighters entered a shallow part of the Rio Grande to stop her from continuing. Two firefighters in Coahuila, Mexico, spent an hour talking to Jorleni, a 23-year-old pregnant woman from Nicaragua, who was trying to walk through the Rio Grande in hopes of reaching the United States. The migrant, who is eight months pregnant, was convinced to return to the shore where paramedics treated her for hypothermia. She was unharmed Jorleni told authorities that she was with another friend when she briefly stopped the trek from Mexico to the United States border via the Rio Grande because of the advanced stage of her pregnancy...
    London (CNN Business)People are paying a lot more for food, gas, cars and services, and inflation isn't over yet as the pandemic continues to distort the economy. So should governments consider setting the price of essential goods?It's been done before, typically during times of crisis, but for most mainstream economists, the answer to this question is a resounding "no." Limiting how much companies can charge will distort markets, they argue, causing shortages and exacerbating supply chain problems while only temporarily reducing inflation. "Price controls can of course control prices — but they're a terrible idea," David Autor, a professor of economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, remarked in a survey published earlier this month by the University of Chicago.Asked whether price controls similar to those used in the United States during the 1970s could reduce inflation over the next year, less than a quarter of economists surveyed said they agree while nearly 60% said they disagree or strongly disagree. The Fed is in a high-stakes race to catch up to inflation"Just stop. Seriously," Austan Goolsbee, a professor at...
    During an interview with CBS’ “Red & Blue,” on Monday, House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) said President Joe Biden “has to stay the course” to fix his bad poll numbers and help Democrats going into the 2022 elections. He also argued that “The press all over this country needs to be exposing” former President Donald Trump, and “If we don’t have a democracy, free enterprise system, every business in this country is going under and we will have one autocrat making the decisions for everybody.” Host Elaine Quijano asked, “Well, you speak with the president fairly regularly, his approval ratings have been declining since the United States withdrew from Afghanistan. What do you believe could reverse his poll numbers and boost Democrats’ prospects going into the midterms?” Clyburn responded, “He has to stay the course. He is going through a rough patch like the country is. He’s going to come out of this on the other end in good shape, I think, provided that the people of goodwill in this society begin to speak up or stand up and...

Heavy snowfall causes widespread power outages: More than 130,000 U.S. homes were without electricity Monday afternoon, according to poweroutage.us. Winter storm warnings are in effect in seven states, from North Carolina in the southeast to Maine in the northeast. “The big winter storm that hit the eastern third of the country is slowly receding today”, The National Weather Service (NWS), the National Weather Service, said in a tweet Monday morning. Corn “The main effects of snow, ice, wind and coastal flooding will last over a wide area.” Winter storm warnings and authorities in many states are urging people to stay off the road because of possible snow, ice and coastal flooding in some areas. # Easy #Winter #Winterstorm #Snow #cgtnamerica pic.twitter.com/InT4KA2Azq – CGTN USA (cgtnamerica) January 17, 2022 In the air, more than 1,600 domestic or international flights were already canceled in the United States on Monday, although more than 3,000 flights were canceled the previous day.

    Monday on FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) reacted to Rep. Maxine Waters’ (D-CA) recent criticism of Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) for refusing to end the Senate filibuster. Donalds argued that the United States was not a “pure democracy.” He said the country was instead a “constitutional republic” and added the “filibuster is one of the mechanisms that helps to maintain the republic.” “I just think it is completely outrageous,” Donalds stated. “It is not based on facts. The reality is what she and what the Democrats want to pass by breaking the filibuster, something by the way that they have defended every single year that the Senate has been in existence up until right now, what they want to do is just basically have the federal government take over all elections in the United States.” He continued, “So if you think that is the Democrat agenda and that’s supposed to be good for all Americans, I completely disagree with you. And I think that Senator Manchin and Senator Sinema are doing the right...
    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) is predicting increased enthusiasm in the midterm elections this year, as the Chinese coronavirus, he said, has made people realize that the “governor has been more consequential in your daily lives than even the President of the United States.” DeSantis, speaking on a Friday episode of the variety program Ruthless, noted that less people typically vote in the midterm elections than the presidential elections. But, he has a feeling that will shift a bit this year. “Because of COVID, people realize the governor has been more consequential in your daily lives than even the President of the United States,” he said, speaking as one governor who refused to lock down his state for months on end, much to the dismay of the left and establishment media. “And so, we have an opportunity to not just get all you all to the polls, but to get your friends and neighbors who don’t always vote in these races, and we’re going to have a tsunami of turnout in November 2022,” he predicted. “And that’s what’s really exciting...
    On January 11, 2022, the United Nations (UN) Emergency Relief Coordinator Martin Griffiths appealed to the international community to help raise $4.4 billion for Afghanistan in humanitarian aid, calling this effort, “the largest ever appeal for a single country for humanitarian assistance.” This amount is required “in the hope of shoring up collapsing basic services there,” said the UN. If this appeal is not met, Griffiths said, then “next year [2023] we’ll be asking for $10 billion.” The figure of $10 billion is significant. A few days after the Taliban took power in Afghanistan in mid-August 2021, the U.S. government announced the seizure of $9.5 billion in Afghan assets that were being held in the U.S. banking system. Under pressure from the United States government, the International Monetary Fund also denied Afghanistan access to $455 million of its share of special drawing rights, the international reserve asset that the IMF provides to its member countries to supplement their original reserves. These two figures—which constitute Afghanistan’s monetary reserves—amount to around $10 billion, the exact number Griffiths said that the country would...
    We have seen intense diplomatic activity during the past week about the fate of Ukraine, a large European country bordering on Russia and four members of the West’s security alliance, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). As the current round of talks conclude, the issues remain dead serious, the stakes high and the choice of war or peace far from settled. Senior diplomats held crisis talks in Geneva, Brussels and Vienna because Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin, moved more than 100,000 troops to Ukraine’s border to underline his demands. Those demands are complicated, but in effect, he wants NATO to guarantee that it will not expand further, particularly into Ukraine. The United States and its allies say that’s a non-starter, that Ukraine, like every other independent country, must be free to decide what is in its national interest, including security arrangements. NATO, for its part, is committed to offering membership to interested parties that meet its qualifications. Article continues after advertisement Since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, NATO has taken in 14 new members, starting with Poland, Hungary...
    Economic sanctions remain one of the most powerful tools the United States has in its foreign policy arsenal. And as Russian forces continue to amass along the border with Ukraine, officials in the U.S. hope the threat of those sanctions can deter a full-scale invasion. "The thing about sanctions is they're most effective if you don't have to use them," said Olga Oliker, program director, Europe and Central Asia at the International Crisis Group. "They're most effective if you can credibly threaten something that the other guy doesn't want enough that they don't then do whatever it is you're trying to keep them from doing." Besides sanctions that target individuals or specific companies, some proposals involve cutting Russia off from the SWIFT system, which would remove Russian institutions from an important global financial network.Another target is the near-completed Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, which when operational would double the amount of natural gas moved from Russia to Germany through the Baltic Sea and likely reduce the need for other pipelines, such as the Urengoy–Pomary–Uzhhorod pipeline that runs through Ukraine.Republican Sen....
    (CNN)In 10 seconds, this animation shows the march of Covid-19 cases across the United States in the pandemic's most recent six months.Starting July 1, 2021, amid a relatively quiet summer the emergence of new cases fueled by the Delta variant spreads across the South in August. Cases then climb across the Plains, Midwest and Northeast by fall.Another dramatic rise overwhelms the map starting in December, likely attributable to the more transmissible Omicron variant. As of this week, nearly every county is reporting average rates higher than 100 new cases per 100,000 people. Average daily new cases nationwide are now more than three times the pandemic's peak last winter. The animation is based on county-level data collected by local governments and tracked by the Johns Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering.An estimated 64 million cases have been reported in the United States since the pandemic started in 2020, a number that is about 19 percent of the population — though some people have had Covid-19 more than once.
    Beijing (CNN Business)People trying to fly from the United States to China may soon be confronted with an unthinkable scenario: Starting next week, there are likely to be no commercial flights bound for the country as Beijing tries to keep coronavirus infections out ahead of the 2022 Winter Olympics. Beginning January 19 and continuing for at least two weeks, all flights from the United States to China have either been canceled or are likely to be suspended because of Chinese aviation regulations, according to CNN Business research of government announcements and published flight schedules. As of Friday, only two United Airlines (UAL) flights still appeared eligible to operate for that period.The Beijing Winter Games open on February 4, and participants are mostly taking special flights restricted to people with OIympics credentials as part of a strict bubble that authorities are implementing around the event. Since June, the Civil Aviation Administration of China has applied a so-called "circuit-breaker" rule to international flights. That rule means that a flight is automatically suspended for two weeks if five or more passengers test positive...
    Spider-Man No Way Home, MCU’s last Spider-Man movie that became a blockbuster during an epidemic, may be too big. Multiverse superhero America Chavez, along with Peter Parker and his friends are featured in some of the arts showing being part of the cast.

Finally, USA Chavez took the next doctor to the Multiverses of Madness. Spider-Man No Way Home Spoilers Announcement from next paragraph. Is Chavez America Important in SpiderWars? It was collected by sales outlets such as The Direct, which shared the concept art of Spider-Man No Way Home artist Masjid Guziara, in which America Chavez can be seen in two scenes of the film, which were not eventually filmed.

                 Tennessee Senator Bill Hagerty (R-TN), a member of the Senate Banking and Foreign Relations Committees, joined 15 of his GOP colleagues to introduce the Coronavirus Origin Validation, Investigation, and Determination (COVID) Act of 2022, according to a Tuesday press release by the senator’s office. “The Americans whose lives and livelihoods suffered due to the pandemic deserve the unvarnished truth about the pandemic’s origins,” Hagerty said. The bill would authorize sanctions if, 90 days after enactment, the Chinese Communist Party fails to allow for a credible and comprehensive international investigation into the origins of COVID-19 at laboratories in Wuhan that engaged in risky research involving bat coronaviruses, the press release states. Specifically, the bill would sanction the leadership of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and its affiliated institutes and laboratories, including the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Additionally, the bill would suspend federal research funding across all academic fields for studies that involve the CAS, and impose a prohibition on gain-of-function virus research cooperation between any individual or institution based in the United States that receives federal funding and...
    When Barbara F. Walter was part of an advisory panel for the CIA, the political scientist offered insights on the conditions that can lead to civil wars and violent conflicts. And in 2022, Walter believes that those conditions can be found in the United States. Walter, author of the new book “How Civil Wars Start, and How to Stop Them,” discussed her concerns during a Monday, January 11 appearance on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut.” Walter told host Joy Reid that when a major political party is heavily focused on “identity” and “race” rather than “ideology,” that is one of the conditions that can lead to a civil war — and the modern-day Republican Party, according to Walter, is obsessed with White racial grievance and identity politics rather than a traditional conservative agenda. “Here in the United States, we’re in the midst of a grand transition from a white-majority country to a white-minority country,” Walter noted. Many white Americans, of course, aren’t worried about that transition, as they have spent their lives in large urban centers that are racially and ethnically diverse....
    Two massive fires have devastated the United States in the first nine days of 2022, with a Philadelphia row house fire killing 12 people on Jan. 5 and a New York City apartment fire killing 17 on Sunday.  "This is going to be one of the worst fires that we have witnessed during modern times," New York City Mayor Eric Adams said of Sunday's fire, which also left at least 63 people injured.  The Philadelphia row house fire, which authorities say may have been started by a toddler who was playing with a lighter near a Christmas tree, was the deadliest to hit the city in more than a century.  Here is a look at some of the deadliest residential fires over the last 20 years in the United States. Chicago apartment fire on Aug. 26, 2018 Ten children died in this Chicago apartment when a fire broke out in August 2018.  (Chicago Fire Department) Ten minors, including six children under the age of 12, were killed during a sleepover when a blaze broke out on the porch of a...
    Colombian authorities and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrested 11 members of a smuggling gang that helped migrants from all over the world, including China, Cuba, Nigeria, and Pakistan, migrate illegally to the United States. The National Police said the network operated out of Pasto in the western department of Nariño, Colombia, and was under investigation since September 2021.   The smuggling network used a fleet of cars, public transportation buses to transport the migrants from the Nariño cities of Pasto and Ipiales to the northwestern department of Antioquia for a fee that ranged between $150 and $350. The group reportedly targeted migrants from Cuba, China, Angola, Nigeria, Somalia, Bangladesh, India and Pakistan and promoted their services at parking lots and hotels near bus terminals.  In recent years, South America has become a transport hub for global migrants who want to illegally enter the US in recent years.  People from all over the world will land in the Chile or Ecuador of Colombia and find traffickers to smuggle them north - to avoid trying to enter the US at its high...
    Australia will spend more than $3.5billion to purchase 120 tanks and other armoured vehicles from the United States. The upgrade could see the Australian Army gain up to 75 Abrams tanks, 29 assault breacher vehicles, 17 joint assault bridge vehicles, and six armoured recovery vehicles. Defence minister Peter Dutton says the tanks, teamed up with other vehicles, would provide the ADF with critical firepower for land operations. 'The new Abrams will give our soldiers the best possibility of success and protection from harm,' he said. The vehicles will are set to arrive in 2024.  More to come

    Josh Lederman slammed the official response or apparent lack thereof to the bottleneck on I-95 outside of Washington, D.C. – something that the NBC News correspondent himself experienced. After having reported Tuesday morning from his car on I-95, appearing on NBC’s TODAY and MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Lederman finally made it home after almost 24 hours on the road. On Tuesday evening, Lederman appeared on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House to discuss his experience. Anchor Nicolle Wallace asked him, “What are the sort of calls for accountability in the aftermath?” Lederman responded: Well, one thing I’ll say, just from what we could see on the ground, is it wasn’t like there was one accident if they could only clear that. The issue was the roadways were such a mess of ice and snow that, looking around, it was littered in every direction with disabled vehicles, cars, trucks, tractor-trailers. So you’d clear one accident and 10 feet down the road, there would be another one. So there were certainly a lot of issues there. Now the authorities are saying that part of the problem was that they had this rain right before the snow, and so that made it hard for them to...
              by Francis Sempa   The Biden administration appears to be heading in the direction of waging a two-front Cold War over Ukraine in Eastern Europe and Taiwan in East Asia, both of which could turn “hot” any day. The imprudence of such an approach should be obvious, but the great danger is that such “crises” could get out of hand before the leaders involved step back from the brink. Russia’s Vladimir Putin may want to extend Russia’s rule to Ukraine and other former Soviet republics, but he definitely wants to ensure the end of NATO expansion. China’s Xi Jinping, like all of his predecessors, wants Taiwan unified with the mainland, and while he would prefer to do it peacefully, he may be willing to risk war with the United States to achieve his goal–especially if he believes he can win such a war at an acceptable cost. That leaves the Biden administration, which to date has been sending mixed signals to both Russia and China. Administration spokespersons have warned of severe consequences should Russia invade Ukraine, but President Biden has...

    Two Kentucky historians are issuing a stern warning to Democratic lawmakers about what they should make clear to their constituents before the 2022 and 2024 elections. In an op-ed published by The Courier-Journal, Brian Clardy, a Murray State University history professor, and John Hennen, a history professor emeritus at Morehead State University, sounded the alarm on the Republican Party's long-term plan for the United States. According to Clardy and Hennen, the GOP is preparing to lead the United States down a path "straight toward white supremacy and authoritarianism." “This is real, this is serious and it’s frightening,” Clardy warned. Clardy and Hennen insisted that "Democrats are wrong if they think beating back COVID-19 and boosting the economy via their economic program will be enough to hold the House and Senate in 2022 and earn Biden a second term in 2024." “The Democrats have to remind people that next year and in 2024, democracy itself will be on trial,” Clardy warned. Hennen went on to discuss what needs to be done in order to combat the GOP's push...

    The death rate from COVID-19 in the United States remains stubbornly high compared to the United Kingdom and other developed nations, raising questions about why the world's largest economy hasn't been able to better rein in mortality. Considering a variety of factors, it is likely that differences in vaccination rates play a key role in the higher US death rate, with less widespread adoption of vaccines in America fueling more severe illness and death.  The US overtook the UK in June as the G7 nation hardest hit by COVID deaths on a total per capita basis, and has maintained the ignominious title ever since. Since November 1, the US has averaged about 3.8 COVID deaths per million people each day, more than double the UK rate of 1.8, according to a DailyMail.com analysis of data from Our World in Data. The difference has remained consistent even as the UK saw COVID case rates spike well above US levels as the Omicron surge took hold. Since November 1, the US has averaged about 3.8 COVID deaths per million people each day,...
    CNN medical analyst Dr. Jonathan Reiner took Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) to task on Tuesday for comments he made on Fox News about the safety and effectiveness of Covid-19 vaccines. “We all hoped and prayed the vaccines would be 100% effective, 100% safe,” said Johnson on Monday’s Fox News Primetime. “But they’re not. We now know that fully vaccinated individuals can catch Covid, they can transmit Covid. So what’s the point?” After playing a clip of Johnson’s appearance, CNN’s Poppy Harlow asked Reiner for his reaction. “I’d say that he’s so misguided that it makes me wonder whether this is all just an act,” Reiner responded. “And if it is an act, what does that say about what he thinks his constituents want to hear?” In his remarks, Johnson omitted the crucial fact that being vaccinated against Covid-19 greatly reduces one’s risk of dying or requiring hospitalization as a result of having the virus. “The only people dying essentially now from this virus are the unvaccinated,” Reiner continued. “And the vast majority of people being hospitalized in this country are...
    Each new variant has its complications. With the eruption of the Omigron variant first discovered in South Africa in mid-October, the United States has been experiencing an explosion of lawsuits, but not only that. In New York City and New York State in general, the number of hospital admissions has been on the rise since November 1, with an increase of nearly 190%, according to health officials. NBC New York. Of those admitted to this new hospital, more children are with Govit-19. The New York State Department of Health is closely monitoring the hospitalization of children associated with Covit-19, according to a report released Friday. “The biggest increase is in New York City, which quadrupled between Dec. 5 and Dec. 19,” it said.

    (CNN)An American teacher detained in Libya for more than six weeks has returned to the United States after the Libyan foreign minister personally intervened to expedite his release.Fernando Espinoza, 29, landed Monday afternoon at New York's JFK International Airport to a welcoming party that included his mother, Sara Espinoza, and executives from the nonprofit Richardson Center who negotiated his return."I obviously made some mistakes, but multiple other parties made several mistakes as well, and it all just snowballed," Fernando Espinoza told CNN from the car on the way to his hotel.Espinoza's arrival on US soil ended weeks of anguish for his mother, who said she was given very little information about where and why her son, a former US Navy submariner, was being held -- or when he would be freed. Her work to secure his release dovetailed with mounting political tensions as Libya approached what was supposed to be its first presidential election in a decade."I'm just feeling happy and grateful that he's back and that this didn't last as long as it could have lasted," Sara Espinoza said.Read...

    Fight disinformation. Get a daily recap of the facts that matter. Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.On December 11, a TikTok user named @dumpsterdivingfreegan uploaded a video showing a bounty of packaged and unopened food products that the account claimed came straight from a Whole Foods dumpster. “Dumpster diving at Whole Foods is nothing like I’ve ever seen before,” exclaimed the voiceover as the video panned to tables loaded with dozens of packages of meat, produce, dairy products, and even an entire frozen turkey, all allegedly pulled from the garbage. None of the food, the video claimed, had yet gone past its sell-by date.  So in the middle of the night I got lost in this girl’s tik tok who dumpster dives at Whole Foods.

                 The United States Department of Justice U.S. Attorney’s Office Eastern District of Tennessee on Thursday announced Hamilton County Schools would receive a $266,314 grant under the Students, Teachers and Officers Preventing School Violence Act (STOP) School Violence Act. The grant is a part of a more than $125 million nationwide program aimed to help keep schools safe. “The Justice Department has no greater responsibility than protecting Americans from harm,” Attorney General Merrick Garland said in a statement. The grants were awarded by the Office of Justice Programs’ Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and the department’s Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) to help advance school safety. Safety measures under the STOP School Violence Act include implementing safety measures in and around primary and secondary schools, supporting school violence prevention efforts, providing training to school personnel and students, and implementing evidence-based threat assessments.

    RT Follow RT Under the above heading, Yevgeny Fyodorov wrote in the “Fouine Observerencia” about the draft resolution to prevent the delivery of US space technology to Russia and China. The article said: The Americans seemed to be blocking everything Russia could achieve. But it turns out that there is still room for maneuver. The problem is not in the system Swift, But one of the most realistic – in the export of space technologies. Concerned about US leadership in space, Senator Marco Rubio introduced a bill in the Senate entitled “Protecting America’s Space Leadership and Institutions,” which includes not only Russia but also China. Rubio is actually worried about the industrial intelligence of Russia and China (he is more afraid of China), but all the concerns are centered on the business elements of the space program. In the United States, they fear they will disguise themselves as Russian and Chinese intelligence businesses and explore America’s closest space secrets. All technologies that revolve around the business are primarily two-dimensional. It is much easier to buy...

    The United States has just surpassed 50 million reported cases of COVID-19 and over 800,000 (a conservative estimate) deaths from this disease. While these numbers are a stark reminder of where we’ve been, the current view of where we’re going is unclear and potentially alarming. We had been confronted with a surge of delta cases and then omicron, a much more transmissible variant, exploded last week in our country as it had around the world. As if this is not enough, we are entering the influenza season. We have a lot to be concerned about. Simultaneous waves of delta, omicron and influenza, a “tridemic,” could easily exceed the capacity of our healthcare system and cause untold misery and deaths. We need to do everything we can to avoid this. We came out of the summer delta surge in September. Then by November delta cases started to increase again (Thanksgiving gave it a big boost). But by last week Omicron had become the dominant version of the coronavirus in the United States, accounting for 73% of new infections, federal health officials...
    An unvaccinated man in his 50s with underlying health conditions became the first confirmed American to die from the omicron variant of COVID-19, Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo said Monday.  The death comes as omicron spreads rapidly throughout the United States, replacing delta as the dominant strain.  Omicron accounted for 73.2% of new cases in the week that ended Dec. 18, up from just 12.6% the prior week, according to data released by the CDC on Monday.  A person has a COVID-19 test administered at a walk-up testing site on December 15, 2021 in New York City.

A theater in Mayfield, Kentucky was actually destroyed by a hurricane on the night of December 10-11. If the red seats did not move, the screen was washed away by bad weather. The first photo of the room was taken by Shawn Triplet, a former Marine Corps member from the city. Returning from Chicago to take part in relief work, he watched the indestructible movie on his iPhone before posting on social media. He also gave it a title: “End Credits” (Results Credits – Author Note). Kentucky was the worst-hit U.S. state with 77 deaths after the disaster. “This hurricane swallowed everything in their path.

    In the grip of insecurity and poverty, the vaccine is not at the center of Haitian concerns … and it has almost come to a standstill. The Pan American Health Organization wants to address this. The Pan American Health Organization described the situation in the country during a weekly press conference in Washington. He said he was doing everything he could to expedite vaccination in the Greater region, especially in Haiti. Across the Caribbean and Latin America, 72 million people have been vaccinated, and 55% of the region’s population is now vaccinated. In 20 countries, the World Health Organization estimates that 40% of its target is still far from reached, but that it could be achieved by the end of the year. Except for 6 of them: Saint Lucia, Jamaica, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in particular … But it is in Haiti that the World Health Organization is most concerned about this situation. Less than 1% of the population has a complete immunization schedule and more than 1% have been vaccinated. The Ministry of Health...
    (Geneva) The United States on Thursday denied plans to equip its Australian ally with nuclear-powered submarines, denying China’s accusation of violating the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), and instead presented it as a plan with exemplary protections. Released December 16, 2021 at 2:07 pm. “Australia will block this project, which it wants to end with the United States and the United Kingdom,” the Foreign Exchange Agreement said, adding that during a press conference, a foreign ministry official did not want to be named. Australia, the United States and the United Kingdom signed a defense agreement (AUKUS) in October, calling on the Australian navy to equip itself with nuclear-powered submarines. Brazil also wants to buy a nuclear-powered submarine. This type of submarine is currently only available in nuclear-armed countries. The AUKUS agreement led to the spectacular conclusion of the Franco-Australian agreement on conventional propulsion submarines. China, for its part, described AUKUS as a “very irresponsible” attack on the stability of the region. The U.S. official assured that the unprecedented agreement was “precisely the reason...
              by John D. O’Connor   Russia’s looming invasion of Ukraine presents a clear and present danger to the safety of the European Union and a direct challenge to the NATO alliance, but only now are our major media waking up to this dire threat to Western security. We must now confront urgent questions: Did the United States strengthen Russia, did it weaken Ukraine, and did it do so under the nose of these media? First, a quick run-through of American actions that strengthened Russia. In his 2009 inaugural address, Barack Obama promised to approach adversaries with an open hand, not a closed fist. For this, he won a Nobel Peace Prize, an oxymoronic name, equivalent to the Affordable Care Act. Accordingly, Obama’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton began the “Russian reset” initiative, in which “reset” was misspelled in Russian to mean “overcharge,” the latter ultimately proving more descriptive. Soon after his election, Obama scuttled existing plans to deploy ground-based interceptors in Poland and the Czech Republic, because Russia expressed disapproval, and Obama did not want to be provocative. The media did not seem to...
    Mexican drug traffickers have been turning to social media sites like Facebook, TikTok and Snapchat to peddle massive quantities of fentanyl and fake prescription pills across the United States that have been linked to dozens of overdose deaths. 'Mexican criminal drug networks are harnessing the perfect drug trafficking tool: social media applications that are available on every smartphone,' DEA administrator Anne Milgram said during a press conference Thursday. 'They are using these platforms to flood our country with fentanyl. The ease with which drug dealers can operate on social media and other popular smartphone apps is fueling our nation's unprecedented overdose pandemic.' The DEA's three-and-a-half month investigation led to the seizure of more that 1,500 pounds of fentanyl and over 8 million fake pills that were linked to 46 overdoses.  Between September 29 and December 14, four out of 10 counterfeit prescription pills that were seized in every state of the country nearly resembled authentic Oxycotin, Percocet, Vicodin, Adderall and Xanax and contained at least two milligrams of fentanyl - considered deadly by the DEA.  Between September 29 and December...

    Former President Donald Trump said he believes that Jewish Americans are not interested in Israel anymore, according to clips from a podcast interview. Trump argued Jewish Americans have abandoned support for Israel, instead pointing to white Evangelicals, who have historically expressed strong support for the Middle Eastern nation, as the country's strongest backers, saying, "Evangelical Christians love Israel more than the Jews in this country." "The Jewish people in the United States either don't like Israel or don't care about Israel," Trump told Israeli journalist Barak Ravid in a clip released on an episode of Unholy: Two Jews on the News on Friday. "There's people in this country that are Jewish [who] no longer love Israel."
