The West Virginia Senate on Feb. 10 approved a bill that would penalize physicians who don’t provide “reasonable” medical care to a baby born after an abortion attempt.

Senators unanimously approved the bill following testimony from state Sen. Mike Romano, who said lawmakers have wasted time angling for political points on a bill that has no impact, instead of working on the state’s more serious problems, according to The Associated Press.

U.S. authorities have indicted four members of the Chinese military on charges of hacking the credit-reporting agency Equifax, stealing the sensitive personal information of roughly 145 million Americans and Equifax’s trade secrets, the Department of Justice (DOJ) said on Jan. 10.

The breach into Equifax in mid-2017 was one of the largest hacks on record, and exposed Americans’ sensitive financial records, Social Security numbers, and driver’s license data.

Our History

Having witnessed events like Tiananmen Square and the persecution of the spiritual group Falun Gong, and at a great risk to themselves and their loved ones, a group of Chinese-Americans started publishing The Epoch Times in Chinese in May 2000 in New York City. Some reporters in China were jailed, and some suffered severe torture. Yet despite the risks, they could see the growing need for uncensored coverage of events in China.

Local editions published by regional bureaus soon followed. Today it is the largest Chinese-language newspaper outside of Mainland China and Taiwan. The English edition of The Epoch Times launched in September 2003 on the web, and in August 2004 as a newspaper in New York.

Our Reach

The English Epoch Times prints Monday-Friday in New York City and Washington, D.C., and weekly across the United States and Canada.

In English, as well as in other languages, The Epoch Times serves a broad, international readership. We are proud to offer print and web editions in Chinese, English, Spanish, Hebrew, Vietnamese, Japanese, Korean, and Indonesian, as well as web versions in French, Dutch, German, Italian, Portuguese, Swedish, Ukrainian, Russian, Romanian, Polish, Czech, Slovak, Turkish, Bulgarian, and Persian.

Simplistic stupidity meets reality... -- Trump’s border wall, vulnerable to flash floods, needs large storm gates left open for months Trump's border wall will require the installation of hundreds of storm gates to prevent flash floods from undermining or knocking it over, gates that must be left open for months every summer. The open, unmanned gates in remote areas already have allowed for the easy entry of smugglers and migrants into the United States. At locations along the U.S. southern border where such gates already are in operation, Border Patrol agents must manually raise them every year before the arrival of the summer thunderstorms that convert riverbeds into raging torrents that carry massive amounts of water and debris, including sediment, rocks, tree limbs and vegetation. Trump's wall, which features 30-foot metal bollards spaced four inches apart, effectively acts as a sewer grate that traps the debris; when clogged, the barriers cannot withstand the power of the runoff. Because the gates typically are located in isolated areas that lack electricity, they cannot be operated remotely. Smugglers and other border-crossers can enter through the large gaps and go north following stream channels and narrow canyons to avoid detection. The Trump administration has said little about how it plans to manage the hydrology of the border region.
Stock futures drop as coronavirus fatalities rise Stocks sank Thursday morning as fears over the coronavirus flared further. A mixed report on U.S. economic activity in the fourth quarter of last year did little to move the needle on the three major indices. -- If this plague brings on a recession, what is Trump's plan? Is there a plan?

Trump promise Broken -- Fourth-quarter GDP rose only 2.1% Full-year 2019 posts slowest growth in three years at 2.3% Trump said his stimulus would lead to GDP increases of at least 3%, but that hasn’t happened. Gross private domestic investment fell 6.1% in the quarter, the third straight decline and significantly worse than the 1% dip in the previous period. Investment in structures slumped 10.1% and equipment, particularly on the industrial side, declined 2.9%. Government consumption expenditures and gross investment increased 2.7%, pushed by a 4.9% rise in defense spending. The Congressional Budget Office this week released revised projections that see trillion-dollar fiscal deficits well into the future. The budgetary red ink has fueled a national debt that has now swelled past $23 trillion. Trump has pressured the Federal Reserve to continue to cut interest rates to help lower debt costs, but the central bank on Wednesday kept its benchmark rate in a range between 1.5%-1.75% and indicated it likely is on hold unless economic conditions change significantly.
Democrats are already bracing for a ‘hostile’ Trump transition Democrats fear Trump and his aides won’t meet, share documents or otherwise cooperate in a handover of power. -- Democrats are bracing for the possibility that if Trump loses the 2020 election, he and his aides will bungle a smooth handover of power, and maybe even outright sabotage the transition. At least one outside group that works with the 2020 Democratic campaigns has quietly launched a transition-related effort designed to offer an early look at the landscape that awaits them if they oust Trump. The Partnership for Public Service, is openly appealing to Trump and his Democratic opponents to start thinking early about transition planning, even if it comes across as “presumptuous.” One leading Democratic presidential candidate, Elizabeth Warren, just days ago unveiled a plan that, among other things, describes how she would move quickly to staff the government if she wins the White House. In the plan, Warren voices the fears of many Democrats. “This will be no ordinary transition between administrations. Unlike previous transitions, we will not be able to assume good faith cooperation on the part of the outgoing administration.” That Democrats are making transition-related moves more than nine months before Election Day underscores not only their distrust of Trump but also the reality that taking over the U.S. government is a mammoth task with high stakes. Any government is especially vulnerable during a transition of power, and Democrats who deal with national security are among those most concerned about a Trump-to-Democrat handover. Every transition is tricky, but several Democrats attached to different campaigns mentioned very specific concerns about what a Trump departure could mean. The Democrats said they worry that Trump’s political appointees won’t meet with the incoming team, that there will be little, if any, paperwork left behind to guide them, and that what documents are shared will not be trustworthy. Some fear that Trump aides will destroy paper trails related to controversial issues, not to mention quietly push through last-minute initiatives that could constrict the next administration’s ability to tackle hot button issues such as immigration or relations with Iran. Some Democrats fear they will have to devote precious time in the early weeks of a new administration piecing together what happened under Trump on a range of areas. And that’s all if Trump accepts the election results and leaves. “This could be the most hostile, least professional transition in American history,” a former senior official in the Barack Obama administration said. “And the new administration will have to spend the early period — when it should be hitting the ground running — unearthing buried bodies.” One center-left organization, National Security Action, is already coordinating more than a dozen working groups focusing on specific areas — such as climate change, China, and defense policy — with the goal of producing transition-related information for the eventual Democratic nominee. The Trump campaign did not respond to requests for comment. A White House spokesman, however, said, “The Trump administration will meet all requirements under the law as it relates to any needed transition between administrations.” By May, Trump technically won’t have a choice but to get a transition process going. Thanks to a 2016 law, the executive branch is required to set up transition-related infrastructure at the White House and agencies no later than six months before the election. Once formally nominated, Trump’s Democratic challenger will be given access by the federal government to office space, secure computers and other support to go full-steam ahead with transition planning. The challenge for a Democratic successor will be figuring out what happened that wasn’t made public, especially if Trump political appointees prove unhelpful and many top agency positions remain unfilled. There are, of course, laws that govern how an outgoing administration handles the records it has created — what has to be archived, for how long it is classified, and what can be destroyed. The laws vary depending on whether they are being applied to specific White House offices or the executive branch agencies. But Democrats are worried that Trump and his aides will disregard those statutes. “I would not be surprised if they try to destroy things they worked on, hide evidence or whatever,” the former senior Obama administration official said of Trump political appointees. Democrats say one saving grace is the deep involvement of career government staffers in the transition process. Those staffers are sworn to serve in a nonpartisan fashion, implementing the policies of whoever is in the White House. But Trump political appointees have never trusted them, denigrating career employees as a “deep state.” Democrats expect they will have to reach deep down into the career ranks to get basic information about policymaking under Trump. Democrats may want to start making lists now of career staffers so they’ll know who to talk to, several people said. Another major concern is whether the documents produced by the Trump administration, not just for a possible transition but even sooner, are reliable. There have been many instances of the Trump administration including incorrect information in everything from news releases to internal communications. In one case, the administration acknowledged serious flaws in a report it issued implying a link between immigrants and terrorism, but then refused to take down the report or correct it.
Who are we as a nation? That's what is this impeachment really all about. It is about who we are as a nation, and what we aspire to be. Do we aspire to be a nation of liars and cheats? Do we aspire to be a nation of ignorant people who know little about the world? Do we aspire to be gentlemen (and gentlewomen) in the full sense of the word? The president of the United States represents us all, and our nation, to the world. That person should not represent the most common in us all, but rather the exceptional — our best. The current White House occupant in no way satisfies this standard. And what he has done regarding our election process is not what the founders of our nation intended — inviting foreign intervention is illegal and antithetical to our Republic. This is not the president who should represent us, the people of the United States.
Evidence is 'clear and compelling' In our country's foreign policy and national security, we are heading in the wrong direction. Please consider the following. The circumstances surrounding the offense during Watergate were relatively narrow in scope and more of a criminal than constitutional nature. The "clear and compelling" evidence became more apparent with each new revelation. The country came to clearly understand the evidence and the American people responded. Now, the offense (largely constitutional) is broader in scope and appears less cut and dried as a purely criminal matter. Now the evidence is entwined in the intricacies of foreign policy and national security. For many, at this point, the "clear and compelling" evidence is not as apparent as with Watergate. Those who take the time to understand what is happening now will appreciate its existing and potential repercussions. They will know that the "clear and compelling" evidence we have today is just as "clear" and just as "compelling" as with Watergate and represents an even greater danger to the Constitution and the nation.
