    The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is opening a new China-related counterintelligence case about once every 10 hours as it pushes back against Beijings expansive campaign to steal American intellectual property (IP) and influence policymakers, FBI director Christopher Wray said in a speech on July 7. Wray warned that Beijings counterintelligence and economic espionage operations are the greatest long-term threat to the United States economic and national security. Its stealing of U.S. technology and trade secrets is on a scale so massive that it represents one of the largest transfers of wealth in human history, he said in a speech...
  • COVER-UP: Cuomo Investigates Himself, Finds He's Not at Fault for Deadly COVID-19 Nursing Home Policy

    Downstate New York isnt just the hot spot of the coronavirus pandemic in the United States, but the entire world. Without a doubt, Governor Andrew Cuomos nursing home policy contributed significantly to this. On March 25, Cuomo ordered nursing homes to accept patients regardless of their coronavirus status. Even then it was well-known that the elderly were more vulnerable to the virus, yet Cuomo defended the policy. Nursing homes dont have a right to object. That is the rule and that is the regulation and they have to comply with that, Cuomo said in April. He finally rescinded the order...

    Hackers used malicious Office 365 apps to gain access to customer accounts, which they later used to orchestrate BEC attacks. Microsoft has obtained a court order this month allowing the company to seize control of six domains that were used in phishing operations against Office 365 customers, including in campaigns that leveraged COVID-19 lures. According to court documents obtained by ZDNet, Microsoft has targeted a phishing group that has been targeting the company's customers since December 2019. The phishers operated by sending emails to companies that hosted email servers and enterprise infrastructure on Microsoft's Office 365 cloud service. The emails...

    A doctor at Stanford University said the spike in hospital patients in Texas has "nothing to do with COVID-19. Dr. Scott Atlas, a senior fellow at Stanford Universitys Hoover Institution and the former chief of neuroradiology at the universitys medical center, joined Fox Newss The Story on Monday and said the public should not panic about the spike in hospitalizations. When I looked at every single hospital area in Texas today, 15-20% of people in the hospital as inpatients are COVID-positive patients. That means 80-85% have nothing to do with COVID-19. And the same thing goes with some of these...

    Julianne Moore, Jennifer Aniston, and Amy Schumer were among a group of Hollywood celebrities who joined President Obama in a post-San Bernardino gun control video ad produced by Everytown for Gun Safety. The three actresses were joined by other celebrities-including Kevin Bacon, Michael J. Fox, Sofia Vergara, Sarah Silverman, Ty Burrell, and Nick Offerman-each of whom take turns looking into the camera to say, "We can end gun violence." No one explains how to end it, but they take turns saying the words and, at times, repeat the sentence over and over together.Obama takes time to say, "When we come...

    Enforcement officials will first seek cooperation with local health officials and business owners, he said, which has been the state's approach with rules throughout the pandemic. But if they find violations, the teams will leverage their enforcement and regulatory authorities to enforce the public health orders, he said. Fred Jones, attorney for the Professional Beauty Federation of California, said it's appropriate to have the Board of Barbering & Cosmetology participate, as that agency has sole authority to regulate barber and beauty shops. But he warned of legal challenges if the teams enforce emergency orders that have not been approved by...

    On the Fourth of July, actor Matthew McConaughey suggested that in order to see Americas next birthday, everyone needs to wear the damn mask. Happy 244th birthday, America. We is going through some growing pains on this one, arent we? said McConaughey in an Instagram video posted on Saturday. But growing pains are a good thing, because how the hell else are we going to grow up? continued the Dazed and Confused actor. I think we gotta look each other in the eye. I think we gotta look ourselves in the eye. We gotta look in the mirror and ask...

    Matthew McConaughey appeared on the second episode of Emmanuel Achos show to ask how he, as a white person, can be better about dismantling systemic racism. The former NFL star welcomed the Oscar-winner as a guest following a solo episode of his new show Uncomfortable Conversation with a Black Man. Acho started the show in the wake of national protests against police brutality that were sparked by the death of George Floyd, a black man who died while in police custody in Minneapolis, Minn. [snip] McConaughey asked if ubiquitous adoption of the Black Lives Matter values would act as a...

    Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey made a surprise appearance on Fox News's Bret Baier's show Tuesday night to try and bring some common sense back to society. He regretted to see that we Americans started off on the same page, intent on defeating the coronavirus, but once again we let politics overwhelm us. "About a month ago I could feel that this united purpose that we all have as Americans to beat this enemy and this virus, that purpose got hijacked a bit by partisan politics," McConaughey explained. "All of a sudden the narrative became, 'If you want to go...

Happy birthday, @ChelseaClinton.' . . . Eyebrows have also raised over Clinton's association with pedophile and sex-trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, who's said to have died August 29 in his Metropolitan Correctional Center cell.

    According to Matthew McConaughey, assault weapons are not alright, alright, alright. But banning them is. The 48-year-old actor spoke at the Austin, Texas March for Our Lives, stating that he was there because hes an American citizen, a proud Texan, a March for Our Lives believer, and, most importantly, because Im a father and Im a husband. Though he claimed that he wasnt advocating for gun control, he asked that Second-Amendment supporters take one for the team. McConaughey, a famous face at the gun-control rally, announced that he didnt attend for the sake of subverting the Second Amendment, but that...

    Matthew McConaugheys True Detective character, Rust, describes himself as a realist and McConaughey is calling for the same approach to President Donald Trump. During an interview on BBC One, Andrew Marr asked about whether its time for Hollywood or cultural elite to give Trump a break. McConaughey, the star of Gold, departed from the oppositional views many other actors or celebrities have taken to Trump. Well, they dont have a choice now, McConaughey told Marr. Hes our president. And its very dynamic and as divisive of an inauguration and time as weve had. At the same time, its time...

    "Well, they dont have a choice now. He's our president," he told ChannelFI. "And, its very dynamic and as divisive of an Inauguration and time as we've had. At the same time, its time for us to embrace and shake hands with this fact. And be constructive with him over the next four years." The 47-year-old said it's okay to strongly disagree with some of Trump's policies but it's important to wait and see how his first term in office plays out.

    The headlines are filled with dire warnings of a second wave and trigger-happy Governors are rolling back regulations to try to stem the tide of new cases. But, is any of it actually true and should we all be worried? No, its not a second wave. The COVID-19 virus is on its final legs, and while I have filled this post with graphs to prove everything I just said, this is really the only graph you need to see, its the CDCs data, over time, of deaths from COVID-19 here in the U.S., and the trend line is unmistakable:
