Trump pledges probe into Google 'treason' claim

Trump pledges probe into Google 'treason' claim | 16 July 2019 | President Donald Trump on Tuesday said his administration will look into tech investor Peter Thiel's accusation that Google may be committing treason through its work in China, suggesting he may urge the Justice Department to launch an investigation into the matter.

Thiel later criticized the company's approach to China as "very peculiar" during a Monday night interview on Fox News.

Dems override House rules to allow Pelosi to refer to Trump's tweets as 'racist'

Dems override House rules to allow Pelosi to refer to Trump's tweets as 'racist' | 16 July 2019 | The House voted along party lines to allow Speaker Nancy Pelosi to call President Donald Trump's tweets about minority Democratic lawmakers "racist" in the Congressional Record on Tuesday, overriding a parliamentary ruling and GOP objections. Pelosi's comments were initially ruled "out of order" on the floor itself, a small victory for the Republicans during a tense day in which both sides exchanged accusations of racism, hypocrisy and indecorous behavior unworthy of Congress or the country. The drama over Pelosi's comments played out before the House voted 240-187 to condemn Trump's weekend tweets about four Democratic members of color -- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) and Ayanna Pressley (Mass.). All 235 Democrats were joined by four Republicans and Rep. Justin Amash (I-Mich.) in backing the measure.

Congress investigating possible secret 'bioweaponization' of insects by the Pentagon

Rep. demands to know if Pentagon's 'bioweaponized' Lyme disease-carrying ticks were released on purpose: Congress investigating possible secret 'bioweaponization' of insects by the Pentagon | 16 July 2019 | The US Congress has backed an amendment to the 2020 US Defense budget which could force an investigation into allegations that the pentagon had weaponized insects, including ticks, in a secret program. Rep. Christopher Smith (R-New Jersey), co-chair of the House Lyme Disease Caucus, asked a series of hard-hitting questions about the alleged 'bioweaponization' program and its potential side-effects, including the possible spread of a bacterial infection. "Americans have a right to know whether any of this is true," Smith said in a news release. "And have these experiments caused Lyme disease and other tick-borne disease to mutate and to spread? Who ordered it? Were any ticks released by design?" Lawmakers are considering whether or not to include Smith's amendment in the final version of the budget which will ultimately be presented to President Donald Trump. The amendment to the House version of the Defense budget for 2020 would require the Department of Defense Office of the Inspector General to explain whether the US military had indeed experimented with weaponizing ticks and other insects between 1950 and 1975.

Welcome to Social Government

Welcome to Social Government | 15 July 2019 | Each day we wake up and see the latest way conservative [and, anti Deep-State] voices are being censored, shadow-banned, silently deleted, hidden from view, buried in searches, algorithmed out of existence. ...Big Tech companies absolutely are controlling our speech...They cannot stop speech at the government level, it would never get past the Constitutional review. But private companies do not need to abide by the Constitution. As our lives become digital conduits that flow through private companies, they have congregated at the helms of these companies, silencing the right starting with the fringe and working their way in as far as they possibly can.

Con Ed can't explain what caused the Manhattan blackout

Con Ed can't explain what caused the Manhattan blackout | 14 July 2019 | Con Edison has yet to figure out why a large swath of Manhattan's West Side was plunged into darkness by the blackout that lasted more than five hours on Saturday night. In a statement released late Sunday morning, the power company said it "will be conducting a diligent and vigorous investigation to determine the root cause of the incident." Con Ed spokesman Alfonso Quiroz blamed the blackout on a "disruption on the transmission side" of the company's power grid. Officials initially suspected a manhole fire that affected an underground transformer, but Quiroz said there's "no evidence of a fire at this point."

It also claimed school officials failed to adequately train staff for lockdowns, which it said may have saved lives. [Sandy Hoax can never go to court, because it never happened (as claimed) and officials would be perjuring themselves on the stand. Imagine what the discovery process would produce?]
