How U.S. Tech Giants Are Helping to Build China's Surveillance State | 11 July 2019 | An American organization founded by tech giants Google and IBM is working with a company that is helping China's authoritarian government conduct mass surveillance against its citizens, The Intercept can reveal.

Together, they have worked to advance a breed of microprocessors that enable computers to analyze vast amounts of data more efficiently. Shenzhen-based Semptian is using the devices to enhance the capabilities of internet surveillance and censorship technology it provides to human rights-abusing security agencies in China, according to sources and documents.

The move would make use of "vast" federal databases and free up information sharing among all federal agencies concerning who they know is living in the country, Trump said... Speaking after Trump, Attorney General Bill Barr said the information collected via the executive order could be useful in determining the makeup of the Electoral College and congressional apportionment.

Was Jeffrey Epstein a SPY? Alex Acosta won't deny he made non-prosecution deal with pedophile in 2007 because he was told the financier 'belonged to intelligence' --Asked point-blank if he was ever told Epstein was an intelligence agent, Acosta bobbed and weaved --He wouldn't confirm or deny anything but cautioned about reporters 'going down rabbit holes' | 10 July 2019 | Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta avoided on Wednesday answering a reporter's question about whether he consented to a lenient plea deal for pedophile Jeffrey Epstein in 2007 because he was instructed that the financier was a spy. According to The Daily Beast, when President Donald Trump's transition team vetted Acosta for the top Labor Department post, he was asked about the deal and replied that he had 'been told' to go easy. Acosta, in one source's telling, said he 'was told Epstein "belonged to intelligence" and to leave it alone.' In a press conference Wednesday afternoon, he dodged a pointed question about whether that version of events was true. 'Were you ever made aware at any point in your handling of this case,' a reporter asked Acosta, 'that Mr. Epstein was an intelligence asset of some sort?' Acosta neither confirmed nor denied it.

Murphy wins North Carolina GOP congressional primary runoff

Murphy wins North Carolina GOP congressional primary runoff | 09 July 2019 | A state legislator aided by hardline conservatives on Capitol Hill won the Republican nomination Tuesday for the North Carolina congressional district seat left vacant by the death of Rep. Walter Jones Jr. Voters in the 3rd District GOP primary runoff chose state Rep. Greg Murphy of Greenville over Kinston pediatrician Joan Perry, a first-time candidate...[With 98 percent of precincts reporting, Murphy had won 60 percent to Perry's 40 percent.] They were the top vote-getters in the 17-candidate party primary in April, with Murphy finishing first but falling short of the threshold to avoid a runoff. Murphy's victory is a win for the House Freedom Caucus and for its chairman, Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina, a close ally of Trump in Congress.

Kids in cages: House Dems scrub tweet with photo of Obama-era detention center used to attack Trump

Kids in cages: House Dems scrub tweet with photo of Obama-era detention center used to attack Trump | 10 July 2019 | House Democrats have erased a tweet promoting a hearing on the effects of President Trump's border policies on children after finding out they used a photo depicting a migrant detention center under President Obama's watch. The tweet was posted in anticipation of a hearing scheduled for Wednesday afternoon, dubbed 'Kids in Cages: Inhumane Treatment at the Border,' and included a dramatic photo backdrop displaying the dismal conditions at US migrant detention facilities -- but it was soon deleted after conservative critics pointed out the origins of the image. The congressional Democrats then had another go at it, but their alternative photo choice, much to the lawmakers' immediate embarrassment, was also taken while President Obama was still in office. The second tweet was deleted in record time and replaced with nothing, as apparently the many thousands of up-to-date photos of the detention centers fail to convey the same sense of horror as the Obama-era images.

Michael Flynn's New Brief Shines Sunlight on Prosecutor's Tactics | 09 July 2019 | The defense team for former National Security Advisor Michael T. Flynn has submitted a filing to the Eastern District of Virginia, fighting the government's most recent proposal to ask the court to deem Flynn a "co-conspirator" in the case against his former partner. The designation is solely for the purpose of obtaining the admission of one document the government itself claims is already admissible under a different rule, according to a brief filed by Flynn's defense team. The substantial briefing was filed in just the last few days in the case the government filed against Bijan Rafiekian, Flynn's former consulting firm partner. It was only unsealed Tuesday...The evidence collected by Flynn's current defense Attorney Sidney Powell, who recently replaced Flynn’s former defense attorney Robert Kelner, sheds new light on the extraordinary tactics used to target and retaliate against Flynn, according to the filing.

Steyer is running for president so that he can claim he's a victim of Trump supporters' persecutions, when he goes down with the other "elite" child molesters and sex traffickers.]

Deep State wins again: unelected federal judge rules against Trump on drug pricing disclosures | 08 July 2019 | A federal judge on Monday sided with a coalition of drug companies and blocked the Trump administration from implementing a policy that would require prescription drug manufacturers to disclose list prices in TV ads.
