Philippine’s Duterte Deals Blow To US By Terminating Military Troop Agreement, Lema/Petty, Reuters
CS Commentary: This is the first time in over three years we have had a real problem with Duterte’s actions. Though we do not believe he is a ‘dictator’ in the ilk of Erdogan, Madero or others as the Global MSM, including US media sources, would have you believe, this decision seems somewhat irrational and out of bounds. Time will tell. Also see, Philippines President Duterte Says He Will End Defense Pact With US, Daily Mail/AP
CS Commentary: Whether this is about ‘press freedom’, ‘dictatorship’ or something more important, like, ‘press manipulation and propaganda’ is difficult to tell, but we side with the later for now. The reader can be assured that global forces of liberalism will come to the defense and aid of ABS-CBN, just like they did Rappler. This is and of itself should be a clue where the real battle lies: it is between liberal propagandists and neo-fascists – in whose camp we would not place Duterte – and those who would let democracies work the way they were supposed to.

Must See – Levin: Every President Theoretically Has Abused Power, Hannity, Fox News
Quote: “After three years of unfair and unwarranted investigations, 45 million dollars spent, 18 angry Democrat prosecutors, the entire force of the FBI, headed by leadership now proven to be totally incompetent and corrupt, you have found NOTHING!…. You are the ones interfering in America’s elections. You are the ones subverting America’s Democracy. You are the ones Obstructing Justice. You are the ones bringing pain and suffering to our Republic for your own selfish personal, political, and partisan gain…. If you truly cared about freedom and liberty for our Nation, then you would be devoting your vast investigative resources to exposing the full truth concerning the horrifying abuses of power before, during, and after the 2016 election, including the use of spies against my campaign, the submission of false evidence to a FISA court, and the concealment of exculpatory evidence in order to frame the innocent…. This is nothing more than an illegal, partisan attempted coup that will, based on recent sentiment, badly fail at the voting booth [bold italics CS].”

CS Commentary: This is the first third of Dershowitz’s defense of President Trump only. The entire argument is must-see viewing. An impassioned and clear defense of the Constitution and a tearing to shreds of grounds for impeachment.

Coronavirus Named COVID-19 (video, left), BBC News
CS Commentary: These videos might be a little technical, but are none the less, fascinating. This one explains why there has been a recent bump in virus numbers – probably nothing to be alarmed about because the bump relates to methodology, not actual increased spread – then it explains the importance of duration and efficiency of sleep in combatting viruses. The major news media just caught up with the information presented here – but, a day late.
13 Coronavirus Cases In The US – Where They Are And What You Need To Know, Evie Fordham, Fox Business
CS Coronavirus Update: As of today, 2/15/20, the coronavirus is considered a global pandemic by many, but outside of China spread and number of cases, particularly in the US, is expected to be limited – though because of the spread and secrecy in China this is not certain. Global cases are 67,192+, and still rising, with current globally reported deaths around 1527+, though there are conflicting reports and actual cases and deaths may be much higher. That said, the good news is that the R naut, the rate of spread, now seems to be declining. See this link for bi-daily updates. Part of the discrepancy of reported cases is China’s penchant for under-reporting, or in many cases, falsifying numbers. According to at least one report, China has more cases of Coronavirus than it did of SARS. SARS occurred in 2002-03. Any useful vaccine for the virus will not be ready for mass distribution for at least one year, though there is hope that two medicines already in use for HIV and Malaria might be effective now. Mortality rate presently estimated around 2%, though so far 20% of cases with outcome have resulted in death. Some experts believe the true infected rate may be as high as 100,000 which would mean that 2000 people may have died. SARS mortality rate was 10%; but, flu has a much lower mortality rate of about .5% and kills many more people a year, so control of this virus is mandatory. Flu has already infected 19 million globally this season and killed approximately 10,000. There are likely more than the reported cases/deaths of Coronavirus in some Asian countries. The Coronavirus is not expected to peak in China until April/May. The danger of future spread is primarily to Developing Nations. The US State Department has advised against all travel to China.
