#USA #WashingtonDC #University #foreigners #Coronavirus

Foreign students at US universities who only offer online courses in the winter semester because of the corona virus are supposed to leave the country according to the will of the US government.
The US Immigration Service ICE announced that foreign students enrolled in such universities would have to leave the country or move to a university that offers face-to-face classes. Otherwise they face expulsion.
Foreigners who wanted to study at a university that taught exclusively online from autumn onwards would not be issued a visa. They are not allowed to enter the country. The new regulation affects students who hold or wish to apply for an F-1 student visa.

I want to share a few thoughts on why I'm loving #AlbertPike eating dirt. It's probably not for the reasons you think. Yes, he was a Confederate general (a terrible one). But on the outset of the Civil War, Pike played a role in dragging several Native nations into the war. 1/
In 1861, Indian Territory (now OK) held the Five Tribes: Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek (Muscogee), and Seminole. These tribes enjoyed limited sovereignty, were slaveowning, and deeply reliant upon U.S. money. The U.S. bounced at war's start, leaving the Indians alone. 2/
Enter Albert Pike, a clever/pompous Arkansas lawyer who's been appointed commissioner to the Five Tribes by the CSA. He's represented several tribes legally before. Pike starts with the Cherokee, but is told to buzz off by Chief John Ross who prefers neutrality. 3/

According to a preliminary study, the Sars CoV-2 virus now circulating in Beijing differs somewhat from the strain that previously affected the country.
This is reported by Zeng Guang, epidemiologist of the health authority, according to the "Global Times". The results are to be compared with analyzes from other countries in order to trace the lineage of the pathogen.
It is normal for the genetic makeup of viruses to mutate over time and new subtypes to emerge. Properties of a virus can change, but do not have to. In the recent outbreak in Beijing, the virus was traced back to a chopping board on the Xinfadi wholesale market,

News Analysis🔎The @EpochTimes has so far counted 85 “Unusual” instances for the case of Lt. @GenFlynn, which has been filled with contradictions, falsehoods, apparent blunders, extraordinary moves, and strange coincidences. (Thread👇)…
The case of @GenFlynn is inevitably heading toward its conclusion.

While District Judge Emmet Sullivan is trying to keep it going, there’s only so much he can do since there’s nobody left to prosecute the case after the #DOJ dropped it last month.…
In the latest developments, the #WashingtonDC appeals court set a hearing in the case on June 12, while the #DOJ’s solicitor general himself, as well as 5 of his deputies, urged the court to order the lower-court judge to accept the case dismissal.

If you aren't following a developing situation out of Washington, D.C.: roughly 40 protesters were invited into a private home to prevent police from roughing them up. This put the protesters in compliance with D.C. curfew law.

In response, police teargassed the private home.
Police have surrounded the #WashingtonDC home, and have attempted to gain entry by threatening the homeowner, claiming COVID-19 gives them authority to enter, and ultimately teargassing the entire place.

Activists on the ground are livestreaming.
Right-wing outlets are using this standoff to create hysteria, claiming these protesters are violently breaking into homes.

Even more concerning, police are echoing that rhetoric even though the homeowner has repeatedly said these protesters were invited.

People who want to trash our show tell me that I am not doing enough to be critical of #Trudeau. Many who want me to condemn him, want me to praise #Trump Once upon a time I would ask "What's wrong with these people?" But I don't have to ask any more.
Forced myself to watch an hour of @FoxNews prime time the other night, and I swear to God, I wanted to go for some sort of medical test afterwards - sickest trash I've ever seen on a news station. Person in #WashingtonDC who I find most difficult to watch is not the President.
It's the Vice President. Watching someone stimulate themselves by being submissive, sycophantic and obsequious toward authority, disgusts me like few other behaviors. #MikePence disgusts me.

#USA #NorthKorea #WashingtonDC #KimJongUn #김정은

President Donald Trump noted that he knew exactly what was happening with North Korea's chairman Kim Jong-un in his State of Health.
"I know what's going on," President Trump said after being asked about Chairman Kim's status at an event held at the White House on the 30th (local time). But President Trump said, "I can't talk about Kim Jong-un right now." I just want everything to be fine. "
President Trump also emphasized, "I know the situation very well." The emphasis was placed on the fact that the US intelligence agency has accurate information regarding the outflow of reports on Kim's health ideals. Nevertheless, the contents were asked.

It is time for one long #Coronavirus update. I have been resisting doing this as (1) I do not want to add to the hysteria & the panic & (2) I don't believe in doomsday predictions. Moreover, things have been moving so fast, who knows what's what. BUT it's time for real talk...
Overall, #Coronavirus (the outbreak of #COVID19) is REAL. The effects on your daily life from the fallout will be REAL. The impact society, economics, & politics in 2020 will be severe & REAL. None of this is Fake News. None of this should be downplayed. (2/
People who are trying to silence REAL discussion are doing a disservice to the public interest. This is a 9/11 & 2008 level event in terms of its impact on domestic & international dynamics. This thread is not about creating panic but encouraging a smarter response. (3/
