chYna you want students/spies in the US, GFY



NEW: ICE just put down a notice to students in the US on student visas that they must leave the United States if their classes are going to be only online this fall. If they want to stay, ICE says they must transfer to a school with in person instruction.

SEVP modifies temporary exemptions for nonimmigrant students taking online courses during fall 2020 semester

WASHINGTON – The Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) announced modifications Monday to temporary exemptions for nonimmigrant students taking online classes due to the pandemic for the fall 2020 semester. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security plans to publish the procedures and responsibilities in the Federal Register as a Temporary Final Rule.



Temporary exemptions for the fall 2020 semester include:



Nonimmigrant F-1 and M-1 students attending schools operating entirely online may not take a full online course load and remain in the United States. The U.S. Department of State will not issue visas to students enrolled in schools and/or programs that are fully online for the fall semester nor will U.S. Customs and Border Protection permit these students to enter the United States. Active students currently in the United States enrolled in such programs must depart the country or take other measures, such as transferring to a school with in-person instruction to remain in lawful status. If not, they may face immigration consequences including, but not limited to, the initiation of removal proceedings.

Nonimmigrant F-1 students attending schools operating under normal in-person classes are bound by existing federal regulations. Eligible F students may take a maximum of one class or three credit hours online.

Nonimmigrant F-1 students attending schools adopting a hybrid model—that is, a mixture of online and in person classes—will be allowed to take more than one class or three credit hours online. These schools must certify to SEVP, through the Form I-20, “Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status,” certifying that the program is not entirely online, that the student is not taking an entirely online course load this semester, and that the student is taking the minimum number of online classes required to make normal progress in their degree program. The above exemptions do not apply to F-1 students in English language training programs or M-1 students pursing vocational degrees, who are not permitted to enroll in any online courses.

Schools should update their information in the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) within 10 days of the change if they begin the fall semester with in-person classes but are later required to switch to only online classes, or a nonimmigrant student changes their course selections, and as a result, ends up taking an entirely online course load. Nonimmigrant students within the United States are not permitted to take a full course of study through online classes. If students find themselves in this situation, they must leave the country or take alternative steps to maintain their nonimmigrant status such as a reduced course load or appropriate medical leave.



Due to COVID-19, SEVP instituted a temporary exemption regarding online courses for the spring and summer semesters. This policy permitted nonimmigrant students to take more online courses than normally permitted by federal regulation to maintain their nonimmigrant status during the COVID-19 emergency.



F-1 nonimmigrant students pursue academic coursework and M-1 nonimmigrant students pursue vocational coursework while studying in the United States.

Now if only we would kick the United Nations out of our country and let some other country host and subsidize them.

Lots of $ to fund a corrupt org.

How much does the U.S. give to WHO?

In 2018-19, the U.S. contributed nearly $900 million to WHO's budget. That was about one-fifth of the organization's $4.4 billion budget for those years.

It’s Happening: Americans Turn to Trump as Democrats Continue to Embrace Lawlessness, Defunding Police, Ongoing Street Violence



Black Lives Matter activists torch a Minneapolis Police Precinct.

New polling confirms Americans are not as crazy and clueless as their mainstream media.

Despite all the media BS about peaceful protests, Americans are not so willing to go along with ripping down all the statues of heroes and saints, burning and looting the business districts and threats to abolish the police.

According to a new poll by Democracy Institute the fallout from the Black Lives Matter protests and riots will win President Trump his reelection.

The Express reported:



According to the poll conducted by the Washington based thinktank the Democracy Institute, President Trump is neck and neck with his rival Joe Biden on 47 percent. However, Mr Trump would win in the electoral college system by 309 to 229 delegates because he is on course to win the crucial swing states including Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin where he outpolls Vice President Biden by 48 percent to 44 percent.

The findings come as the US President went to the iconic Mount Rushmore to make a speech attacking “the angry mobs” who want to erase America’s history.

He told the crowd of supporters: “There is a new far-left fascism that demands absolute allegiance. If you do not speak its language, perform its rituals, recite its mantras, and follow its commandments then you will be censored, banished, blacklisted, persecuted, and punished. Not gonna happen to us.”

According to the poll, the concerns over the effects of the protests appear to be boosting Mr Trump’s chances even though his campaign is believed to be flagging.





Given a choice between which phrases identified their views 71 percent chose “all lives matter” while 29 percent picked “black lives matter”.

The American People Just Endorsed President Trump’s Black Lives Matter Crackdown in Two Stunning Polls

https://www.revolver.news/2020/07/american-people-support-trump-crackdown-rioters-vandals-protect-heritage/

Two new shocking, just-released polls confirm that the American people are standing firmly behind President Donald J. Trump’s crackdown on rioters and defense of our American heritage.



A stunning 59 percent of the American people support President Trump’s handling of the protests and riots, with 45 percent even going so far as to say President Trump has not been tough enough, according to a poll conducted by The Democracy Institute.



What’s more, a shocking 70 percent of Americans believe that the Black Lives Matter movement has not improved race relations, with 38 percent even saying they’ve made race relations worse, according to a poll conducted by Monmouth. Only 26 percent of Americans believe Black Lives Matter has made race relations better.



These polls confirm what many Americans already suspected.



There exists a very large silent majority that could propel President Trump to a second term in the White House, if he stays the course on cracking down on rioters and vandals and protecting America’s heritage, history, culture, public art, and monuments.



THE SILENT MAJORITY IS STRONGER THAN EVER, JUST WATCH!!!



— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 8, 2020



The Democracy Institute poll indicates that the American people are tired of the Black Lives Matter movement. When given the choice, 71 percent of Americans say that All Lives Matter describes their viewpoint on race relations, and only 29 percent choose Black Lives Matter.



This is no surprise, considering the Black Lives Matter movement has been exposed as Marxist in origin and often operating hand in glove with the alleged domestic terrorist outfit, Antifa.



A mere 27 percent of Americans believe that President Trump has been too tough on riots, and a shocking 45 percent would support a greater crackdown.



Democracy Institute



According the the Democracy Institute, a vast silent majority of 74 percent of Americans disapprove of ripping down monuments, and 77 percent disagree with the failing New York Times that Mount Rushmore is a “racist monument.”



The Democracy Institute also found that the riots and violence caused by Democrat proxies are beginning to take a toll on Joe Biden’s election chances.



A stunning majority of 60 percent say that Joe Biden has been insufficiently critical of the violent riots. Furthermore, 67 percent picked Trump as the stronger leader between the two, and only 27 percent selected Biden. Seventy percent considered President Trump to be a populist, and 61 percent said they considered Joe Biden to be an establishment politician.



What’s more, 55 percent of Americans believe Biden is suffering from some form of cognitive decline, such as dementia, and 44 percent said that Biden’s cognitive decline would make them LESS likely to vote for him.



Finally, when asked whether Trump or Biden was too old to be president, 58 percent of Americans said Biden was too old, and only 37 percent picked Trump.



Revolver Conclusion: President Trump’s pathway to victory is stronger than ever before, and these polls provide the roadmap for his success.



To win in November President Trump must crack down even harder on riots and vandalism, and continue vocally and symbolically defending our nation’s monuments and heroes with more arrests, and more rallies at historically important locations.



Furthermore, President Trump should continue to enact policies, like withdrawing from Afghanistan and suspending legal immigration, which draw a contrast between Trump the Populist and Biden the Establishment Politician.



Finally, President Trump must paint Biden as a senile, demented, and weak candidate who is too weak or clueless to stand up to rioters and vandals.

The President’s Executive Order on Hong Kong Normalization



I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, determine, pursuant to section 202 of the United States-Hong Kong Policy Act of 1992, that the Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong (Hong Kong) is no longer sufficiently autonomous to justify differential treatment in relation to the People’s Republic of China (PRC or China) under the particular United States laws and provisions thereof set out in this order. In late May 2020, the National People’s Congress of China announced its intention to unilaterally and arbitrarily impose national security legislation on Hong Kong. This announcement was merely China’s latest salvo in a series of actions that have increasingly denied autonomy and freedoms that China promised to the people of Hong Kong under the 1984 Joint Declaration of the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the Government of the People’s Republic of China on the Question of Hong Kong (Joint Declaration). As a result, on May 27, 2020, the Secretary of State announced that the PRC had fundamentally undermined Hong Kong’s autonomy and certified and reported to the Congress, pursuant to sections 205 and 301 of the United States-Hong Kong Policy Act of 1992, as amended, respectively, that Hong Kong no longer warrants treatment under United States law in the same manner as United States laws were applied to Hong Kong before July 1, 1997. On May 29, 2020, I directed the heads of executive departments and agencies (agencies) to begin the process of eliminating policy exemptions under United States law that give Hong Kong differential treatment in relation to China.

China has since followed through on its threat to impose national security legislation on Hong Kong. Under this law, the people of Hong Kong may face life in prison for what China considers to be acts of secession or subversion of state power –- which may include acts like last year’s widespread anti-government protests. The right to trial by jury may be suspended. Proceedings may be conducted in secret. China has given itself broad power to initiate and control the prosecutions of the people of Hong Kong through the new Office for Safeguarding National Security. At the same time, the law allows foreigners to be expelled if China merely suspects them of violating the law, potentially making it harder for journalists, human rights organizations, and other outside groups to hold the PRC accountable for its treatment of the people of Hong Kong.



I therefore determine that the situation with respect to Hong Kong, including recent actions taken by the PRC to fundamentally undermine Hong Kong’s autonomy, constitutes an unusual and extraordinary threat, which has its source in substantial part outside the United States, to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States. I hereby declare a national emergency with respect to that threat.

South Dakota Governor: There Were No New Outbreaks After Trump July 4th Event – Coronavirus Numbers are Dropping


South Dokota Governor Kristi Noem was blasted by the liberal mainstream media for holding a 4th of July celebration at Mount Rushmore with President Donald J. Trump.



The media warned Noem that coronavirus numbers would explode following the event where most of those in attendance chose not to wear masks at the historic event.



On Friday South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem joined FOX and Friends to give an update on the situation in South Dakota.



Governor Noem told Steve Doocy there were no new outbreaks following the Independence Day celebration.



Governor Kristi Noem:



Last week Governor Kristi Noem opened the Professional Bull Riders competition on Saturday, July 11, 2020, at the Denny Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls, SD. Governor Noem rode into the rodeo on a horse with the American flag. Nicely done!

Trump: Administration has cut eight federal regs for every one enacted, eclipsing campaign promise
'American workers were smothered by a merciless avalanche of wasteful and expensive and intrusive federal regulations' - Trump

President Trump on Thursday touted his efforts to cut federal regulations, saying his 2016 campaign promise to permanently remove two federal regulations for every one his administration enacts has far exceeded its mark.


“Before I came into office, American workers were smothered by a merciless avalanche of wasteful and expensive and intrusive federal regulations,” Trump said at a Rose Garden event.


The president, using the power of office to showcase his accomplishments ahead of reelection, said that since taking office in January 2017 his administration has in fact removed nearly eight federal regulations for every new one enacted.





“What an incredible achievement,” said Trump, who in recent days has also rolled out an infrastructure plan, popular among many voters of all political parties.


Trump said the cuts in regulations have saved the average American about $2,300 and that African-Americans are among those who have most benefited financially.


The White House said ahead of the president’s speech that the reforms over the past three years have saved the country a total $50 billion in regulatory costs, resulting, prior to the impact of the COVID-19 global pandemic, bringing more than 2 million Americans out of poverty.

New York Times staffers say leadership ‘terrified of the young wokes’

By Jon Levine and Keith J. Kelly

July 18, 2020 | 10:33am




The Gray Lady’s convulsions continue.
Former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson says she’s dismayed by the troubles surrounding the New York Times op-ed section, particularly the departure of its editor James Bennet after he published a commentary by a U.S. senator calling for military force to quell riots.
“I don’t think that James Bennet should have been forced out at The Times,” Abramson told The Post, adding she “felt terrible” about it.
“He and I worked together in the Washington Bureau of the Times and I think he is one of the great journalists of our time. So I was very sad to see him pushed out,” Abramson said.
Abramson, who led the Times newsroom from September 2011 to May 2014, expressed sympathy for Bari Weiss, who shockingly resigned from the op-ed desk this week in a blistering open letter to publisher A.G. Sulzberger. Weiss said she’d been bullied and criticized by a Twitter-obsessed Times culture increasingly intolerant of any ideas outside its progressive, leftist orthodoxy.
Abramson said she’d been told by friends still at the company that its internal Slack channels have become “mean-spirited,” with employees frequently “overreacting” to trivialities.
“I feel terrible for [Bari] if it’s true that she was bullied and that colleagues said the things she said they did. Anybody would empathize with someone who had gone through that,” Abramson said. “I had heard about a lot of overheated statements shooting back and forth on Slack. For more than a year I have heard about it.”
Enlarge ImageJames BennetR. Umar Abbasi
Abramson was at the Times before the newsroom had the Slack messaging system and when Twitter was a more benign place — and said it was “probable” that the growth of these platforms had impacted staffers since her departure.
The famed editor, who was ousted after then-publisher Arthur Sulzberger claimed she’d misled him over the hiring of a new co-managing editor, pushed back against some of Weiss’ claims.
“I really take issue with the notion that The Times editors cede their authority to Twitter and that a lefty cabal is somehow deciding what appears in the New York Times. That is ridiculous,” she said.
Her assessment was challenged by multiple current Times insiders, however, who said the “diversity channel” on Slack often devolves into a cesspool.
“It started as a place for journalism and deteriorated into a place for rage,” one Times staffer told The Post. “The masthead reads Slack and doesn’t do anything about it.”
Enlarge ImageFormer New York Times Executive Editor Jill AbramsonBrad Barket/Getty Images for WIRED
Times brass, in fact, are “terrified of the young ‘wokes,'” the source said.
“It’s [Bari] as a person that many find unacceptable,” added a second person familiar with the matter. “She doesn’t fit neatly into boxes of being on a side, and that really frustrates a lot of people.”
In a statement responding to Weiss’ missive, a Times spokeswoman said the paper was “committed to fostering an environment of honest, searching and empathetic dialogue between colleagues, one where mutual respect is required of all.”
That claim, however, has been undermined by how Weiss’ colleagues freely vented against her on Twitter in starkly personal terms both before and after her resignation.
Styles reporter Taylor Lorenz in May publicly attacked Weiss’ story about MMA commentator and podcaster Joe Rogan as “dishonest” and “untrue.” In her piece Weiss attributed Rogan’s popularity with men to his embrace of more traditional expressions of masculinity like hunting and body building.
“When did it become okay for a @nytimes reporter to publicly describe a @nytopinion columnist as “dishonest?” asked former Times opinion columnist Joe Nocera in a public rebuke of Lorenz.
Lorenz later argued she was not attacking Weiss’ credibility and that she “enjoys reading Bari’s work.”
In June, Peter S. Goodman, a London-based economics correspondent for The Times, compared her opinions to “holocaust denial.”
Enlarge ImageBari WeissMike Vitelli/BFA
After her resignation letter was published, many of Weiss’ colleagues dismissed the document.
Tech columnist Kara Swisher described the letter as “decidedly inaccurate” and a “sad” “pile of words.”
Nikole Hannah-Jones, who won a Pulitzer Prize for her work on the now widely discredited New York Times 1619 project, pointedly suggested the letter was false.
“Interesting how everything in this letter is simply taken as fact,” she said.

Mike Pompeo Rips Hollywood, ‘Corporate Acquiescence’ To Communist China

For too long, Hollywood, American corporations, and even American sports (see: NBA) have self-censored to appease communist China. Secretary of State Mike Pompe says that era needs to end.

Speaking at the Nixon Library in California, Pompeo gave a lengthy speech about the dangers of the United States doing anything and everything possible to squeeze cheap dollars out of the Chinese Communist regime

Executive Order on Lowering Prices for Patients by Eliminating Kickbacks to Middlemen



By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:



Section 1. Purpose. One of the reasons pharmaceutical drug prices in the United States are so high is because of the complex mix of payers and negotiators that often separates the consumer from the manufacturer in the drug-purchasing process. The result is that the prices patients see at the point-of-sale do not reflect the prices that the patient’s insurance companies, and middlemen hired by the insurance companies, actually pay for drugs. Instead, these middlemen — health plan sponsors and pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) — negotiate significant discounts off of the list prices, sometimes up to 50 percent of the cost of the drug. Medicare patients, whose cost sharing is typically based on list prices, pay more than they should for drugs while the middlemen collect large “rebate” checks. These rebates are the functional equivalent of kickbacks, and erode savings that could otherwise go to the Medicare patients taking those drugs. Yet currently, Federal regulations create a safe harbor for such discounts and preclude treating them as kickbacks under the law.



Fixing this problem could save Medicare patients billions of dollars. The Office of the Inspector General at the Department of Health and Human Services has found that patients in the catastrophic phase of the Medicare Part D program saw their out-of-pocket costs for high-price drugs increase by 47 percent from 2010 to 2015, from $175 per month to $257 per month. Narrowing the safe harbor for these discounts under the anti-kickback statute will allow tens of billions in dollars of rebates on prescription drugs in the Medicare Part D program to go directly to patients, saving many patients hundreds or thousands of dollars per year at the pharmacy counter.

Interesting highlights from Trump's press conference on lowering drug pricing.

He kept emphasizing that "this should have been done a long time ago." And anons know why it was not. Because pretty much ALL the presidents and congressmen were on the take, beholden to big pharma.

POTUS also spoke of the pressure that was put on him not to sign these executive orders. He said he got more calls from more powerful people than he's had on any other issue.

POTUS said we would not even be able to calculate the money that was being reaped by those at the top of this scam (intimating a lot of them are all in West Palm Beach, interestingly).

I especially liked when POTUS called out the "so-called allies" who pay far, far less for the very same drug than Americans, even though the drug is made by an American company and shipped off in the same box, with the same ingredients to some socialist country. Americans might be 800% more for the same drug.



So much winning. America is blessed by God to have this great man as president.

As I understand it the higher prices merikan's pay was to make up for the sales to poorer countries. Globalization, ya know. That includes a wide range of products, not just meds.
