Secret Kremlin Documents 
Tell a Story Hardly Anyone Knows
by Michael Ledeen
{frontpagemag.com} ~ I will never forget the day Vladimir Bukovsky, the celebrated Soviet dissident, walked unsteadily across a bridge to freedom... having been swapped with the head of the Chilean Communist Party. He was one of my heroes, and became a friend while studying psychology at Stanford University. He spent years in the Gulag, but the KGB was unable to break him, and his first book, To Build a Castle, will long remain one of the classic testimonies to the evils of Soviet Communism. When the Soviet Empire fell, in part as the result of Bukovsky’s tireless efforts to destroy Communism, many of us hoped it would be possible to get our hands and minds on the Kremlin’s archives, but there were endless bureaucratic hurdles, some of them shamefully on our side of the great divide. In the end, many of these were overcome by a handful of private citizens. A group of us bought a laptop computer and a scanner, taught Bukovsky how to use them, and off he went to Moscow. For a brief period, the Soviet archives, even the secret ones, were accessible to investigators, and we thought Bukovsky might well be able to get his electronic hands on the documentary history of Soviet Communism, one of the most malevolent forces in twentieth-century history. We hoped that the Soviet documents would enable our citizens to understand what had really happened in the Cold War, and help us frame a more realistic foreign policy in the future. Moreover, we and Bukovsky wanted to stage a trial of the Communists, along the lines of the Nuremburg trials of the Nazi leaders after World War II. We didn’t get that trial, and the documents have been locked up by Putin. But Bukovsky got a lot, and now his book on his discoveries is about to be published in English (Judgment in Moscow), after its original appearance in French and German twenty years ago. It’s a fascinating saga. Once there, Bukovsky scanned tens of thousands of Politburo documents into his laptop, and brought them back to the free world. You can find them all in the Bukovsky Archive, and read about them in his book. He recounts such secrets as the Kremlin’s clandestine payments to foreign Communist parties and leaders, covert paramilitary training in places like Czechoslovakia for their foreign comrades, and extensive disinformation campaigns throughout the “West.” He also details the cooperation between the Kremlin and our own political class...

Treasury joins White House, Pentagon 
in warning Israel over Chinese encroachment   
by MICHAEL WILNER
{jpost.com} ~ Yet another Trump administration official expressed alarm this week over China's creeping influence over Israeli infrastructure... Following statements of concern from the White House and Pentagon, a top official at the Treasury Department has now told Israeli cabinet members during a visit to the country that Chinese technology companies working in Israel pose a threat to intelligence cooperation between the longstanding allies. The Trump administration has taken steps to curb market penetration by Huwaei Technologies Cos Ltd and ZTE Corp, two of China’s biggest network equipment makers, seeing them as spying threats. Both firms deny having any such purpose. Interest by Huwaei and ZTE in Israel has worried its US ally, as has the green light it granted China’s Shanghai International Port Group in 2013 to build a private port near Haifa, a berth for the US Mediterranean fleet. In December, The Jerusalem Post first reported of concern within the Navy over  China's future role at the port. A spokesman for the Sixth Fleet said that its use of the port might be in doubt once the Chinese arrive in 2021. Foreign and defense ministry officials have internally lamented that the SIPG agreement was not vetted through an inter-agency process. Transportation Minister Israel Katz has told the Post that the security cabinet is now reviewing Washington's concerns...
House Majority Leader scumbag-Steny Hoyer
walks back 'The State of the Union is off' declaration
by Katelyn Caralle
{washingtonexaminer.com} ~ House Majority Leader scumbag-Steny Hoyer’s office walked back his stunning declaration Wednesday afternoon that the State of the Union would not proceed as planned... “Mr. scumbag-Hoyer had not read Speaker Pulosi’s letter and mischaracterized it,” scumbag-Hoyer’s deputy communications director, Mariel Saez, told the Washington Examiner. In light of the government shutdown, House Speaker Nancy Pulosi, D-Calif., on Wednesday morning shared a letter suggesting to President Trump that he should work with her on rescheduling his Jan. 29 State of the Union address or give his prepared remarks to Congress on paper.Ultimately, the decision rests with Pulosi, not Trump. scumbag-Hoyer, D-Md., appeared on CNN around noon and went a step further than Pulosi when he said, "the State of the Union is off.” “What if the president — I don't know — responds with ‘No?’ He wants to keep the date. Any chance that he could convince you otherwise?” CNN anchor Kate Bolduan asked scumbag-Hoyer...  https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/house-majority-leader-steny...

Revolutionary Guards commander warns 
Israel Iran will retaliate for Syria strikes 
by ILANIT CHERNICK 
{jpost.com} ~ Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps commander Mohammad Ali Jafari warned Israel Wednesday to “fear the day when Iranian precision missiles hit you... and take revenge of all the blood of oppressed Muslims which you have shed.” The tit-for-tat comes after comments made by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu saying Israel would continue striking Syria so long as Iranian forces remain in the country.  “I'm telling you, get out of there fast. We won't stop attacking,” he said on Tuesday. On Wednesday, Mehr News Agency quoted Jafari as saying that Netanyahu’s threat was “ridiculous,” stressing that “the Islamic Republic of Iran will keep all its military and revolutionary advisers in Syria,” as well as “equipment and weapons” with which it aims to “train and empower Islamic Resistance forces and support oppressed people of the country. "Be sure, we do not take into account your ridiculous threats,” the Iranian commanded said. “You know that if we have chosen to wait against your hostile measures, some considerations lies behind it.” "Don't play with the lion's tail," Jafari added...
“Mystery Virus” Spreading Like Wildfire Across U.S.
Population, Putting People in Bed for a Month
by Isabelle Z.
{naturalnews.com} ~ A cough can be rather annoying, especially when it keeps you up at night, but you can usually take comfort from knowing that it tends to run its course rather quickly and you’ll be back to normal in no time... Unfortunately, a new virus is going around that is turning what is normally a week-long nuisance into a month-long nightmare – and speculation abounds regarding its origin. Physicians around the nation are reporting a spike in cases of people suffering from a very unusual cough. It’s caused by a virus and it’s lasting anywhere from four to six weeks – and in some cases, even longer. One doctor, Texas Health Dallas’s Dr. Gary Gross, says he has been seeing at least a patient a day suffering from the virus, and he lamented the fact that it lasts so long without seeming to get better. Dr. Gross told CBS DFW that the virus has no quick fix. Patients have no choice but to let it run its course, although some medications can help soothe the cough somewhat. Patients are advised to get plenty of sleep as well as lots of fluids. Emergency medicine specialists in Cincinnati have warned the public about the virus, which they say has caused a surge in patients presenting with upper respiratory symptoms such as a cough, congestion, and shortness of breath...  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-01-11-mystery-virus-spreading-acro...

Leftmedia Hot Air on 2018 Carbon-Emissions Increase
by Jordan Candler:  A paradoxical development in the U.S. of late has been its reduced CO2 footprint. This reduction has occurred even though President Donald Trump removed the U.S. from the Paris climate accord. Yet the Left assured us this feat was impossible to accomplish without acceding to a global pact. Now ecofascists are asserting that new data on CO2  emissions prove that the downward trend in emissions is unsustainable and that emissions are slated to take off once again. They are wrong on both counts.

             According to the Rhodium Group, “After three years of decline, US carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions rose sharply last year. Based on preliminary power generation, natural gas, and oil consumption data, we estimate emissions increased by 3.4% in 2018. This marks the second largest annual gain in more than two decades — surpassed only by 2010 when the economy bounced back from the Great Recession.
               Investor’s Business Daily says the report “has set off alarms in all the predictable media quarters.” But before getting our knickers in a twist, it’s important to consider why emissions might have risen. “Thanks to a booming economy set off by President Trump’s new trade deals, tax cuts and deregulation, in the past two years the U.S. has seen manufacturing jobs surge,” Investor’s explains. That surge manifested in roughly 500,000 additional manufacturing positions. “All those people going back to work in refurbished factories in America’s Heartland … helped push emissions from manufacturing up 5.7% last year alone.”
               Other causes for the emissions increases might include jet fuel (33.1%), diesel fuel (3%), electricity producers (1.9%), and Old Man Winter. “That’s right,” Investor’s says. “Businesses and homes used more fuel for heat than they have in years. Rhodium noted that CO2 from this winter effect rose 10% in 2018.” A similar situation could unfold this year. Over the coming weeks, severe cold is expected to encompass a large swath of the country.
               “A healthy economy always produces more CO2 when it’s growing fast than otherwise,” Investor’s observes. “Our current growth rate is roughly 50% higher than it was under President scumbag/liar-nObama. If it didn’t produce more CO2, that would be surprising.” The editors also point out, “By the way, those gains in CO2 won’t go on forever. The next slump or slowdown will take care of that, by causing many companies to close and many people to lose their jobs. And fracking will continue to chip away at our COemissions. … The truth is, the world is getting much cleaner, when measured by CO2output per dollar of GDP. So is the U.S. It’s decarbonizing. And as the world population begins to decline later this century and new energy technologies come on line … COemissions won’t be a problem, real or imagined.
               In other words, when it comes to emissions rhetoric, our media need to cool it. A warming economy is far more alluring than a temporary increase in CO2 that, truth be told, may not even have anything to do with climate change.  ~The Patriot Post

ALERT ALERT

LOOK: Obama Declared National Emergencies 13 Times Including Swine Flu, Iran And Flint Water Crisis

President Trump is expected to declare a State of Emergency at the US southern border on Friday.

Declaring the immigration crisis a national emergency is overdue. Presidents have declared national emergencies for nearly 50 years.

4

Barack Obama declared 13 national emergencies, 11 of which continue to this day. The Obama emergencies included the Swine Flu, Flint water crisis and Iran.

The Conservative Tribune reported:

As it turns out, there are currently 31 ongoing national emergencies over which the president wields certain authorities, the first of which has been in existence since 1979 and is one of only two emergencies declared by Carter.

There were a total of six national emergencies during former President Ronald Reagan’s tenure, as well as four more during the administration of former President George H.W. Bush, all of which have ended.

Former President Bill Clinton declared 17 national emergencies — six of which remain in effect — while former President George W. Bush declared 12 national emergencies, of which 10 remain ongoing.

Then we get to former President Barack Obama, who declared 13 national emergencies, 11 of which continue to this day. Thus far, President Trump has declared three active and ongoing national emergencies.
