    Fact, along with Trump, is on trial in the Senate

    WASHINGTON — “The truth is there,” Rep. Val Demings, D-Fla., said at the opening of the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump, a statement repeated and paraphrased countless times by the seven House impeachment managers, who have treated the case against Trump as self-evidently true based on the facts they have gathered. Now they just have to convince Republicans.

    China Is Building a Hospital for Coronavirus Patients in Just Six Days. How?

    Authorities in Wuhan, China have begun construction on a new temporary hospital in the region, designed to isolate and treat patients of the coronavirus. This isn't the first time China has pulled off such an enormous feat; During the SARS outbreak in 2003, Beijing built a similar medical facility in just under seven days. Wuhan, China is the epicenter of a new type of coronavirus that has infected more than 830 people and killed as many as 26 throughout China, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, Taiwan, and the United States.

    Hong Kong, U.S. take steps to curb coronavirus spread

    As experts tell people not to panic about the unfamiliar coronavirus, several governments are taking steps to limit its spread. A second case of the respiratory virus that originated in Wuhan, China, leaving more than 40 people dead and causing quarantines and transit closures throughout China, has been confirmed in the United States. The Chicago patient, who last week returned home from Wuhan, is reportedly isolated in the hospital, and officials say she's doing well and has had limited contact with others.

    ‘Fox & Friends’ Desperately Tries to End Unhinged Giuliani Interview, Repeatedly Fails

    President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani showed up on the president's favorite morning program on Friday—and apparently didn't want to leave. A day after Giuliani claimed on Twitter that he was about to go public with evidence that will reveal the “Biden Family Enterprise made millions by selling public office” when Joe Biden was vice president, the former New York City mayor sat down on Fox & Friends' curvy couch for what can generously be described as an unhinged, rambling, off-the-rails performance. Giuliani, whose involvement in the Ukraine scandal is at the heart of the president's impeachment, continually left the hosts of the Fox News slack-jawed as he prattled on and bulldozed right through their efforts to keep him from incriminating and implicating himself.

    March for Life 2020: I'm a single-issue, pro-life voter. What's wrong with that?

    The student argued that pro-lifers were actually going to cause suffering because if a baby was permitted to live, things might go wrong and the child could end up in foster care. The student's conclusion was that we both need to end life in the womb and quit focusing on abortion until, apparently, all other problems in the world are solved. My question to her was one I've asked many people: Is it upsetting that the American Diabetes Association doesn't fight cancer, or that the American Cancer Association is not trying to cure every life-ending disease?

    They’re local heroes. But do Australia’s unpaid ‘firies’ deserve more?

    Mr. Macquart and his 20-member brigade belong to the Rural Fire Service (RFS), a force of some 70,000 volunteer firefighters scattered across New South Wales. Similar corps of “firies” exist in neighboring Victoria and other states, manning the front lines against hundreds of infernos in a bushfire season already considered the most severe in Australia's history with half the summer remaining. The ferocity and scale of the fires have strained the service's capacity to respond and stirred public debate about the country's reliance on a volunteer firefighting model that dates to the late 1800s.

    Damaged By Drone Strike: Suleimani's Sainthood Is Now Being Questioned

    In the wake of Washington's assassination of former Quds Force commander Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, Arab Shi'a desires and interests across the Middle East are under a microscope. Have they shifted their protest slogans from opposing Iran to denouncing the United States? Americans should not assume that wide-angle television images of Shi'a protests in Iran calling for the downfall of the Great Satan reflect Shi'a sentiment across Arab societies.

    Chinese Uighurs in Saudi face impossible choice

    His eyes brimming with tears, a Uighur student in Saudi Arabia holds out his Chinese passport -- long past its expiry date and condemning him to an uncertain fate as the kingdom grows closer to Beijing. The Chinese mission in Saudi Arabia stopped renewing passports for the ethnic Muslim minority more than two years ago, in what campaigners call a pressure tactic exercised in many countries to force the Uighur diaspora to return home. Half a dozen Uighur families in Saudi Arabia who showed AFP their passports -- a few already expired and some approaching the date -- said they dread going back to China, where over a million Uighurs are believed to be held in internment camps.

    The best of Adam Schiff from the impeachment trial

    As House Democrats wrapped up their 24 hours of opening statements in the impeachment trial of President Trump on Friday, one thing members of both parties acknowledged — albeit somewhat grudgingly on the Republican side — was that Rep. Adam Schiff had done about as good a job as he could in arguing the Democrats' case. Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, was the lead impeachment manager for the Democrats, speaking on his feet for hours at a time with fluency, eloquence and command of the facts. “He's well-spoken,” Sen. Lindsay Graham, R-S.C., told reporters on Thursday.

    China virus outbreak revives calls to stop wildlife trade

    The outbreak of a new virus linked to a wildlife market in central China is prompting renewed calls for enforcement of laws against the trade in and consumption of exotic species. It's also raising questions about how it could happen again after the lessons learned from the 2002-2003 outbreak of SARS, or Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, which was traced to consumption of wild animals in the southern city of Guangzhou. Demand for wild animals in Asia, especially China, is hastening the extinction of many species, on top of posing a perennial health threat that authorities have failed to fully address despite growing risks of a global pandemic.

    New Trump Rule Requires U.S. Officials to Weigh Pregnant Visa Applicants' Medical Needs

    The Trump administration issued a new rule on Thursday instructing United States consular officials to deny pregnant women visas unless they can prove “to the satisfaction of the consular officer” either that they are not traveling to the U.S. to give birth, or that they have a legitimate medical reason to give birth in the country. The administration says the new provision is an attempt to cut down on what's known as “birth tourism,” or when women come to the U.S. specifically to give birth so that their children gain American citizenship. But critics say the new rule may be deeply flawed.

    ‘On life support’: Buttigieg's struggles with black voters threaten his candidacy

    When Pete Buttigieg holds “big rally type events” in South Carolina, “it's mostly white folks showing up,” he acknowledged ruefully Thursday night. Buttigieg's low standing with black voters has been a long-running theme, and as he and his campaign argued that he simply wasn't well-known enough, it is one he has worked to correct. Over the past month and a half, he has invested more money advertising in South Carolina, where a majority of Democrats are African American, than any of the non-billionaire Democrats running for president.

    China is Expanding into the Indian Ocean—Here Are Five Things the Indian Navy Can Do About It

    For decades, the Indian Navy has been the dominant regional power in the Indian Ocean, and has even boasted a carrier aviation capability that was nearly unique in Asia. But as outlined in a report by the Center for New American Security (CNAS), the growth of Chinese military power in the last two decades has dramatically eclipsed India's own attempts to modernize and expand its forces—particularly in the maritime domain. This is problematic due to New Delhi's tense relations with Beijing since a 1962 border war.

Republican Gov. Bill Lee signed the bill Friday without fanfare or an official announcement, making it the first law to be implemented in Tennessee this year. Previously, Lee said he endorsed the law because he believed defending religious liberty “is very important.

    'Kids are taking the streets': climate activists plan avalanche of events as 2020 election looms

    Organizers in the youth climate movement plan an avalanche of activities beginning next week, determined to make the future of the climate the major issue of the 2020 election. Capitalizing on turnout in the September climate strikes, when 6 million people worldwide turned out to demand urgent action to address the escalating ecological emergency, young US organizers are making the leap from mobilization to demands. “The headline message of the strikes in 2020 is: the kids are taking to the streets to strike for climate and they're asking you to vote,” said Katie Eder, the executive director of Future Coalition, a communications and training hub for youth climate groups.

"CBS News reported last night that a Trump confidant said that key senators were warned, 'Vote against the president and your head will be on a pike.' I don't know if that's true," Schiff said. Overall, Graham was complimentary of the Democrats arguments, even if the chance that they swayed his opinion is negligible.
