China social credit system, punishments and rewards explained – Business Insider

The Chinese state is setting up a vast ranking system that will monitor the behavior of its enormous population, and rank them all based on their “social credit.”

The “social credit system,” first announced in 2014, aims to reinforce the idea that “keeping trust is glorious and breaking trust is disgraceful,” according to a government document.

The program is due to be fully operational nationwide by 2020, but is being piloted for millions of people across the country already. The scheme will be mandatory.

Focus in Spygate Scandal Shifts to CIA, Former Director Brennan

More than two and a half years after President Donald Trump assumed office, focus on actions taken during the 2016 presidential campaign is starting to shift toward the CIA and its former director, John Brennan.

While some observers, including this publication, have pointed out for more than a year that Brennan appears to have played a key role in the scandal that’s become known as Spygate, actions taken by Brennan and the CIA now appear to have become a central focus of investigators.

America’s failure to stand up to socialism might make us the Stupidest Generation

“It amazes me that almost none of our best voices points out the very real danger — at least not with any frequency or clarity. We’re so focused on getting justice for the crimes committed by the Deep State that we’ve lost sight of the gigantic socialist apparatus that ties all of this together. From Clinton, Mueller, Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page, and Baker to Obama, Brennan, Clapper, Ohr, Preistap, Yates, Rice, and Lynch (and far beyond), this has been a seditious conspiracy to overthrow the will of the people.

But why?

Dictatorship.

Socialists have murdered well more than 100,000,000 innocent folks in the past 102 years, often in ghastly ways. This same form of socialism is alive and well in American politics. It is lying below the surface — and all they allow us to see are its brightly colored deceits. “

Trump: Would Be Hard To Make A Deal With China If Hong Kong Becomes “Another Tiananmen Square”

“I think it’d be very hard to deal if they do violence [the Chinese government against protesters in Hong Kong]. I mean if it’s another Tiananmen Square, I think it’s a very hard thing to do,” he said on the runway tarmac before boarding Air Force One. “I really do believe that if this weren’t part of the deal [not responding to protesters with violence], possibly something would have happened already a long time ago.”

The quantum revolution is coming, and Chinese scientists are at the forefront

Beijing is pouring billions into research and development and is offering Chinese scientists big perks to return home from Western labs. China’s drive has sparked calls for more R&D funding in the United States, and helped trigger concerns in the Trump administration that some types of scientific collaboration with China may be aiding the People’s Liberation Army and hurting U.S. interests.

“The United States must be prepared for a future in which its traditional technological predominance faces new, perhaps unprecedented challenges,” the Center for a New American Security wrote in a recent report about China’s quantum ambitions.

Why We Left England:  Mom of 3 Arrested, Jailed for Putting Recycling in Wrong Color Bag

Webb was cited for four separate violations of the Environmental Protection Act, but when she failed to show up to an April court hearing she was arrested and detained in a holding cell.She was also ordered to pay a fine of £50, as prosecutors argued the new changes had been widely publicized, and was “given a six-month conditional discharge,” according to The Daily Mail.

Webb’s lawyer, Jeremy Kendall, contended she’d received permission to continue to use black bags for her recycling, as she’d requested the new color bags but they never arrived.“The black bags chucked out by Lindsey were flagged by a passing warden, who saw 10 bags dumped on the pavement,” Metro reports, adding her address was found during a search of the bags and she’d additionally been identified through surveillance footage.

Liz Warren Vows to Tax Gun Owners Back to the Stone Age with Radical Anti-Second Amendment Agenda | VodkaPundit

If elected, Warren promises to raise taxes on firearms and ammo purchases by 30% and 50%, respectively. That’s on top of her plan for federal licensing for gun ownership — presumably with a federal database of who owns what — expanded background checks, and a renewed ban on “assault-style” weapons.

Warren revealed her plans at the Gun Safety Forum in Des Moines, Iowa, on Saturday, an event organized by Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety.

Joe Biden Repudiates the Founding Fathers on the Reason for the Second Amendment

“Folks, don’t apologize at all about the Second Amendment,” Biden advised, explaining how the amendment allows for limitations on who can own a weapon and what type. “These guys will tell you, the tree of liberty is watered with the blood of patriots. Give me a break.”

“Can you go out and buy a flamethrower? Can you go out and buy an F-15?” he added. “If you want to protect yourself against the federal government, you’re going to need at least an F-15.”
