China has gone into lockdown today as authorities and businesses scramble to shut tourist attractions and public transport systems in a bid to stop the spread of the deadly new coronavirus that has killed at least 26 people. In a drastic turn of events, part of the Great Wall of China and Disneyland in Shanghai have been closed as authorities desperately try to stop people spreading the Wuhan coronavirus amid fears as many as 10,000 are already infected with the killer virus. At least 14 cities, home to around 41million people, are reported to have gone into some form of lockdown in the past two days, with public transport halted and roads closed.

Standoff: U.S. troops block Russian forces from capturing Syrian oil field
U.S. troops last weekend reportedly found themselves in a standoff with Russian forces trying to gain access to key oil fields in northeastern Syria. The Saturday standoff - first reported by Turkish media outlets, citing unnamed local officials in the Turkey-Syria border region — seems to have ended without any shots being fired or any real risk of violence between the two sides. American military personnel reportedly stopped a Russian convoy near the town of Rmelan, and the Russian forces then apparently turned back and returned to their home base.

Trump peace move opens Iran for church plants
A global ministry is commending President Donald Trump for his gesture of peace toward Iran to de-escalate the volatile tensions between the United States and the Islamic Republic, with the outreach's leader proclaiming, "No war means more churches can continue to be planted inside of Iran." Following the United States targeting and killing Islamic Republic's Revolutionary Guard General Qasem Soleimani, and Iran's retaliatory strikes on U.S. bases and allegedly shooting down of a Ukrainian jetliner flying over its airspace, Trump has turned from the consideration of war at this time.

KILLER BUG: Coronavirus death toll hits NINE as cases of 'mutating' bug DOUBLE to 440 in just 24 hours
The virus could be declared a global health crisis today after cases of the mystery bug increased from 300 in one day. It comes as experts in Britain said up to 10,000 people could already be infected and the death rate is currently the same as the Spanish flu epidemic, which killed millions after World War I. The WHO announced it will hold an Emergency Committee meeting in Geneva today, to determine if the outbreak should be classed as a global crisis, like the West African Ebola outbreak of 2014-15.

Trump reportedly to make final decision this week when to release 'Deal of the Century'
President Donald Trump will decide this week whether his administration will release the much-awaited Middle East peace plan before Israel's March 2nd Knesset election, or whether the administration will wait until after Israel's third election in less than a year, Channel 13 reported Sunday night.

According to both Israeli and American officials, the president has yet to discuss the issue with his team handling the Mideast peace plan - which has been dubbed the "Deal of the Century", adding that a number of factors this week will determine the timing of the plan's release.

Russian sources: Moscow gave Iran the high precision tech for missiles that struck US bases in Iraq
The high precision technology accounting for the astonishing accuracy of Iran's missile strike on the US Ain Al Asad air base in Iraq on Jan. 8 came from Moscow, say Russian media quoting local military sources. They name the technology as the GLONASS global navigation system, which corresponds to the American GPS, and had the effect of reducing the Iranian missiles' targeting error to just 10 meters.

Re: 'Disrespectful' dismemberment abortions
Members of Nebraska's unicameral lawmaking body may hit a snag in approving a pro-life bill. If LB 814 becomes law, it will prohibit dismemberment abortions, which are performed in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy. "Dismemberment is a particularly brutal procedure," says Marion Miner of the Nebraska Catholic Conference. "Instruments are inserted through the cervix, and the child is pulled apart piece by piece while still alive and not anesthetized until the child bleeds to death."

HHS: 'There Is No International Human Right to Abortion'
In a speech before health leaders from 35 countries on Thursday, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex M. Azar II stressed that "there is no international human right to abortion," but there is "an international human right to life." Azar also rejected the "constant drumbeat" at the United Nations and the World Health Organization (WHO) about "reproductive rights," which he explained essentially means "unfettered access to abortion."

Canada poised to expand euthanasia
Euthanasia has been available in Canada for people suffering a terminal illness, but a Quebec court has now abolished the "near death" requirement. "By removing the terminal illness requirement, that means you can have euthanasia for physical or psychological suffering," explains Alex Schadenberg of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition. "I do believe this situation is going to be opening up the gates to far more deaths by euthanasia. At the same time, our euthanasia numbers have just been skyrocketing. So as much as we have seen this huge increase in euthanasia, they're only going to be opening the doors more."

Almost 40% of the world's countries will witness civil unrest in 2020, research claims
There are 195 countries in the world, if the Vatican and Palestine are included, and a newly released index of civil unrest has claimed that 47 of those states witnessed a rise in civil unrest in 2019. The data model, published Thursday by socio-economic and political analysis firm Verisk Maplecroft, has also predicted that in 2020, the number will balloon to 75 countries.

The Display of the Future Might Be in Your Contact Lens
A glance to the left. A flick to the right. As my eyes flitted around the room, I moved through a virtual interface only visible to me—scrolling through a calendar, looking up commute times home, and even controlling music playback. It's all I theoretically need to do to use Mojo Lens, a smart contact lens coming from a company called Mojo Vision. HOW WOULD THE ANTICHRIST USE THIS TECHNOLOGY TO SPY ON THOSE LEFT BEHIND?

Cops told to ignore Muslim rape gangs and probe 'other ethnicities'
A Muslim rape gang in England was allowed to roam city streets and abuse young girls because police officers were told to "find other ethnicities" to investigate, according to a detective who spoke to the Telegraph of London.

Socialists are coming for your children
Socialists are coming for your school age children — and that's no hyperbole. In a post on its website, the Democratic Socialists of America writes, "Why Socialists Should Become Teachers." And from there, the DSA of West Virginia explains how the success of a socialists'-led teachers' strike in that state in 2018 that brought them a 5% pay raise could segue into long-term reform within America's public schools. Without understating, this seems a danger to America. It's an attempt to crumble the country from within, by instilling the youth with anti-American viewpoints. In another decade, that would be called seditious. Nowadays? Nowadays, it's called freedom of speech.

'Satanic' sect kills pregnant woman and six children in violent 'exorcism'
Officers found a mass grave containing seven bodies - the 33-year-old woman, five of her children and a neighbour's child - in the indigenous region of Ngabe-Bugle in Panama. The gruesome discovery came after local authorities were told several families had been held against their will in a church where exorcisms were believed to have taken place. Fifteen people were rescued from the religious sect where they were reportedly tortured by being beaten with bibles, choked and having burning sticks rammed in their mouths to "cast out the demons".

Israel intel: Iran will have fissile material for a nuke this year, a nuclear-capable missile in two years
The Israeli intelligence 2020 assessment published on Tuesday, Jan 14, estimates that if Iran continues its nuclear program at the present pace, it will have 25 kgs of highly enriched uranium by winter 2020 and a missile capable of carrying a nuclear bomb in two years. This estimate matches the forecast Israel made five years ago, DEBKAfile's sources note, when six world powers signed a nuclear accord with Iran for curtailing its development of a nuclear bomb. What happened was that the $150bn reward received by Iran was invested in advanced weapons systems and in establishing paramilitary groups under its control for planting around Israel's borders.

Iran tensions could fulfill prophecies about the end of the world, some religious teachers say
Many of these religious leaders view actions in Iran, a Muslim-majority country, as playing a special role in these predictions, which usually focus on the apocalypse, or the end of days. California-based prophecy writer Bill Salus told viewers this week on the show "Prophecy Watchers" that "Iran is the elephant in the room in the Middle East … he's the bully." Salus suggested on the show that God is angry with the current Iranian leadership and that Christians should watch recent events as likely to fulfill biblical prophecies.

Iran's attack on US airbase in Iraq finds Israel vulnerable to same kind of ballistic missile strike
The breakthrough achieved by Iran in upgrading the precision of its ballistic missiles was displayed in its Jan. 8 attack on the big US Ain Al-Asad airbase in W. Iraq. US President Donald Trump laid stress on the absence of casualties and "minimal damage" caused, adding "our early warning system worked very well."

Iran: 35 missiles strike US Ain al Assad and Irbil bases in Iraq. US Mid-East troops & IDF on top alert
The US Ain al-Assad air base in W. Iraq and a US facility at Irbil, capital of the Kurdish republic, were hit by 35 missiles early Wednesday, Jan. 8, Tehran announced. Sources linked to Iran's Revolutionary Guards said that these attacks were part of a series still to come in revenge for the killing of Gen. Qassem Soleimaini. The source of the attack was not immediately clear – whether it came from Iran or a local Shiite militia. And although extent of the damage and casualties was equally unclear, the attack definitely notched up the friction prevailing between Tehran and the US over the killing of the powerful Al Qods general last Friday.

February 11, Iran's Revolution Day, marks estimated revenge timeline for Soleimani's death
Tehran and Washington are on a straight line to collision, DEBKAfile's military sources report. Tehran is unshakably resolved to avenge the death of its top general Qassem Soleimani, while the Americans are deep in preparations for counteraction. An incident on Monday, Jan. 6 created a misleading impression of US confusion. In a Pentagon letter, Baghdad was notified to expect unusual US helicopter activity over Baghdad's Green Zone due to the "US-led task force preparing for onward movement." This was misinterpreted in some European capitals and Baghdad as meaning that US forces were preparing to pull out of Iraq.

US Mid-East bases and Israel on top alert for repercussions from Iran
DEBKAfile's military and intelligence sources report that Soleimani's death represents an extraordinary US operational-intelligence feat in which Israeli intelligence may be presumed to have assisted. It ramps up the US-Iranian contest to the level of open war between US forces serving in Iraq - numbering some 5,000 - and Iran's Revolutionary Guards units operating in the country under Soleimani's command.

Observers: Strike 'united' from UMC's title
The denominational split that everyone knew was coming now is upon the United Methodist Church. The designers of the plan say it's fair and accommodating to both sides, but not everyone agrees. Last month a group of United Methodist leaders came up with a nine-page plan to split the denomination called "Protocol of Reconciliation & Grace Through Separation." It was announced publicly on Friday. The issue that could not be reconciled was whether the 13-million-member church was going to allow homosexual clergy and bless same-sex unions.

Liberal Methodist caucus rips IRD for call to follow biblical sexuality
A caucus within the United Methodist Church (UMC) was called out recently for condemning a Christian ministry that urged the mainline denomination to take a stand for biblical sexuality instead of promoting the far-left's pro-LGBTQ agenda. Last week, Institute on Religion & Democracy (IRD) president Mark Tooley pointed out that a pro-homosexual faction within the UMC attacked his ministry for defending God's teaching on sexual morality.

Millions of animals are dying from the Australian fires, and the environment will suffer for years to come
In a grim video posted on Twitter, a man drives into the fire-ravaged town of Batlow, in the Australian state of New South Wales (NSW). Both sides of the road are covered with ash and lingering smoke. They're also littered with the charred remains of animals killed in wildfires that have ripped through the region. The blazes, which have been burning across Australia for months, have razed homes and wiped out entire towns. Across Australia, nearly 18 million acres of land have been burned -- much of it bushland, forests and national parks, home to the country's beloved and unique wildlife.

Australia's Catastrophic Fires Threaten to Upend the Way People Live
The human, environmental and economic toll of Australia's devastating wildfires is mounting each day, but the country has barely begun to grasp the total cost of the "unprecedented" blazes and how it will change the way people live. Igniting two months earlier than the usual start of the Australian fire season, the flames have torn through an area about the size of West Virginia—killing at least 20 people, shrouding cities in choking haze and stretching firefighters to a breaking point.

Donald Trump tweets that he'll 'strike back' in a 'disproportionate manner' if Iran hits any US targets after Tehran put an $80m bounty on his head, threatened the White House and tore up nuclear deal
Donald Trump has warned that the U.S. will 'strike back' harder at Iran if it retaliates against over the killing of military leader Qasem Soleimani. 'These Media Posts will serve as notification to the United States Congress that should Iran strike any U.S. person or target, the United States will quickly & fully strike back, & perhaps in a disproportionate manner,' Trump tweeted on Sunday afternoon. 'Such legal notice is not required, but is given nevertheless!' he continued.

On short notice, US fast-response force flies to Mideast
Being a U.S. soldier in a fast-response force sometimes means being sent halfway across the world within a day, leaving no time to say goodbye to those staying behind. That's what happened to April Shumard when her husband, a member of the 82 Airborne Division at Fort Bragg, got the call. He was at home, minding the couple's five children while Shumard was at work at Healing Hands day spa, when he sent her a text. He had to rush to base. He wasn't sure if it was a drill or a deployment. Then she got another text: "We're leaving tomorrow."

Qassem Soleimani, head of Iran's Quds force, was among five people killed when an American Reaper drone fired missiles at two cars carrying him and other senior officials out of Baghdad airport early Friday morning. The senior general, commonly known as the second-most powerful man in Iran and tipped as a future president, was so badly maimed in the strike that he had to be identified by a large ring he wore on his finger. Soleimani had arrived at the airport on a plane from either Syria or Lebanon around 12.30am when he was met on the tarmac by Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy commander of the pro-Iran Popular Mobilization Forces in Iraq.

Iran's leaders are not likely to be deterred by US President Donald Trump's warning on Dec. 31 that Tehran would be held responsible for attacks on US forces in Iraq and the storming of the US embassy in Baghdad.

Iran believes that ramping up the pressure on US forces in Iraq will serve its interests in Iraq as well as in Syria.

Why Is The UN Hiring English-Speaking Disarmament Officers In New York?
No, it's not a conspiracy theory. It's a real conspiracy. As the Second Amendment comes under attack, the United Nations is actually hiring for new positions and among those positions are English-speaking disarmament, demobilization and reintegration officers. Why are they doing this, and why are we continuing to be a part of an anti-Christian, anti-American organization?

Mother Miriam: Pope's proposal for 'new humanism' would 'wipe out Christianity'
News of the pope's just-launched "Global Pact" for "new humanism" has "to do with ruining our society, ruining our culture, and destroying the family," Mother Miriam said on her live show Monday. On September 12, the Vatican issued a statement inviting religious, humanitarian, and international leaders, and leading politicians, academics, scientists, and athletes, to sign a "Global Pact on Education."

"This [the Global Education Pact]," the pope said, "will result in men and women who are open, responsible, prepared to listen, dialogue and reflect with others, and capable of weaving relationships with families, between generations, and with civil society, and thus to create a new humanism."

Mother called the pope's initiative to globalize education "demonic." "This is not to protect the family at all. An educational village that will once and for all destroy the family and the human race."

Kim Jong Un Announces 'A New Strategic Weapon,' Stops Short of Ending Diplomacy With US
North Korea entered 2020 not with Kim Jong Un's customary new year speech but with state media outlets reporting on a just-ended four-day meeting of the ruling Workers' Party, at which Kim "confirmed that the world will witness a new strategic weapon to be possessed by the DPRK in the near future."
