House orders Pentagon to say if it weaponized ticks and released them --The order requires the agency to say if it experimented with insects for use as a biological weapon between 1950 and 1975 | 15 July 2019 | The House quietly voted last week to require the Pentagon inspector general to tell Congress whether the department experimented with weaponizing disease-carrying insects and whether they were released into the public realm --either accidentally or on purpose. [My money's on *the latter.*] The unusual proposal took the form of an amendment that was adopted by voice vote July 11 during House debate on the fiscal 2020 defense authorization bill, which lawmakers passed the following day. The amendment, by New Jersey Republican [hero] Christopher H. Smith, says the inspector general "shall conduct a review of whether the Department of Defense experimented with ticks and other insects regarding use as a biological weapon between the years of 1950 and 1975." [Guess I can't be labeled a 'conspiracy theorist,' going forward.]

19 MS-13 gang members indicted in 'medieval-style' California slayings were in country illegally, officials say | 17 July 2019 | Nearly all of the members and associates of an MS-13 gang charged in the "medieval-style" slayings of seven people in California were in the country illegally, officials said.

FBI's spreadsheet puts a stake through the heart of Steele's dossier

FBI's spreadsheet puts a stake through the heart of Steele's dossier | 17 July 2019 | (Opinion) Investigators are trying to ascertain what the British intelligence operative [MI6 agent Christopher Steele and his infamous dossier] told the FBI about his sources, his relation to the Democratic Party and Clinton campaign, his hatred for Donald Trump, his Election Day deadline to get his information public and his leaking to media outlets before agents used his dossier to justify a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to spy on ex-Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. There is evidence Steele told the DOJ in July, and the State Department in October, about all of these flaws in his work, and that State officials even detected blatant inaccuracies in his intelligence. If so, all of that information should have been flagged by the FBI as potentially derogatory information weighing against Steele's use as a source for the FISA warrant. But lest anyone be tempted to think Steele's 2016 dossier is about to be mysteriously revived as credible, consider this: Over months of work, FBI agents painstakingly researched every claim Steele made about Trump's possible collusion with Russia, and assembled their findings into a spreadsheet-like document. The over-under isn't flattering to Steele.

Congressman demands to know if the 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, shadowbanned, 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.

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?]
