‘China Was Correct': Biden Advisor Applauds CCP-Style ‘Monitoring And Speech Control' of Speech.
[The national Pulse] A top legal advisor to President Joe Biden argued that the Chinese Communist Party’s approach to internet censorship was "largely correct," insisting that the U.S. "government must play a large role" in the "monitoring and speech control" on Big Tech platforms.

Harvard Law School Professor Jack Goldsmith, tapped for the president’s exploratory commission on reforming the U.S. Supreme Court, argued in an August 2020 Atlantic op-ed that "in the debate over freedom versus control of the global network, China was largely correct, and the U.S. was wrong."

Throughout the piece, Goldsmith calls for the U.S. government to play a more active role with internet and social media censorship, appearing to invoke the Chinese Communist Party as a model:

The public internet in its first two decades seemed good for open societies and bad for closed ones. But this conventional wisdom turned out to be mostly backwards. China and other authoritarian states became adept at reverse engineering internet architecture to enhance official control over digital networks in their countries and thus over their populations.

-Short Attention Span Theater-
Kamala Worries Rural Folks Can't Find a Copy Machine
[The Post Millennial] Harris, who has been tasked by the Biden administration with handling voting rights issues, spoke to BET about voter ID laws. This requirement would be just too much for American voters, she said, because they would have to "photocopy" their IDs.

"I don't think that we should underestimate what that could mean," Harris told BET. "Because in some people's minds, that means well, you're going to have to Xerox or photocopy your ID to send it in to prove that you are who you are."

"Well," she continued, "there are a whole lot of people, especially people who live in rural communities—there's no Kinkos, there's no Office Max near them. People have to to understand that when we're talking about voter ID laws, be clear of who you have in mind and what would be required of them to prove who they are."

"Of course people have to prove who they are," she said, "but not in a way that makes it almost impossible for them to prove who they are."

Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado shot back, saying: "I live in a rural community and I am perfectly capable of operating a copying machine, Kamala."
Well, sure! But you gotta find one first!
At Kinkos the staff will make the copies for you, if you ask. Even at the public library, if you look helpless enough. But why would I go to Kinko or the public library and pay to use a copy machine when I can use the scan and print functions on my computer printer at home?

Dr. Anthony Fauci: More 'local' vaccine mandates might be needed
[WASHINGTONTIMES] The federal government does not require COVID-19 vaccinations, but Dr. Anthony Fauci
...American epidemiologist with rotating opinions, warnings about the unlikely, and reassurances that if you wear a mask you won't get COVID, as long as you're wearing multiple masks, assuming wearing a mask is necessary in the first place...
said Sunday he welcomes mandates at the local level, particularly once the Food and Drug Administration grants the shots a full license instead of relying on an emergency authorization.

"At the local level, there should be more mandates," Dr. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told CNN
...the organization formerly known as the Cable News Network. Now who knows what it might stand for...
’s "State of the Union." "We’ve lost 600,000 Americans already."

He didn’t specify which entities should push the vaccines, but the White House has taken a hands-off approach to colleges and businesses that decide to require the shots for their employees.

Government Corruption
White House Wants Maximum Secrecy for Hunter Biden Art Deal
[Free Beacon] The White House is negotiating a deal that would shield the identities of anyone who purchases Hunter Biden's artwork due to concerns that transparency would reduce interest from potential buyers, according to the Washington Post.

Biden is set to market his abstract paintings in the fall for prices between $75,000 and $500,000, drawing concern from ethics experts, the Washington Free Beacon reported last month. Government watchdogs have noted that foreign nationals or lobbyists could buy the high-priced art in order to gain influence with the White House and have urged the Biden administration to publicly release the names of any buyers.

But under an agreement that White House officials negotiated with Hunter Biden's art dealer, the names of buyers and bidders "will be kept confidential from even the artist himself, in an attempt to avoid ethical issues that could arise," the Post reported on Thursday.

Officials who helped negotiate the deal reportedly told the paper that "if buyers were publicly disclosed it would restrict interest, because the identities of most art purchasers are not automatically made public."

Biden's dealer, New York gallery owner Georges Bergès, has also "agreed to reject any offer that he deems suspicious or that comes in over the asking price," reported the Post, citing sources familiar with the agreement.

Several art world insiders questioned the steep asking prices for Biden's artwork, with one critic describing it as "somewhere between a screen saver and if you just Googled ’midcentury abstraction' and mashed up whatever came up."

During CPAC Speech President Trump Reveals Letter from Pennsylvania U.S Attorney Detailing Bill Barr Blocking Philadelphia Vote Fraud Investigation
[ConservativeTreehouse] There are three U.S. Attorney Divisions in Pennsylvania: Eastern (Philly), Middle (Wilkes-Barre) and Western (Pittsburgh/Erie). Given the nature of the story as told during the speech, it would most likely be the former USAO in the Philadelphia office; that was William M. McSwain who announced his resignation on January 14, 2021.

In previous comments attributed to AG Bill Barr, he claimed to have seen no evidence of election fraud. The Atlantic Article cites Bill Barr stating to an AP journalist December 1st 2020: ” To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election,” and then the article covers the fallout with the White House from that AP interview.

However, there’s a big difference between not seeing election fraud and purposefully blocking a United States Attorney Office from investigating allegations of fraud with an institutional motive not to discover or see it.

Judge Blasts DC Jail for Not Allowing Jan. 6 Capitol Defendant Access to Evidence
[THEEPOCHTIMES] A federal Washington D.C. judge faulted a district jail on Thursday for failing to provide evidence to a defendant who was arrested for allegedly being involved in the Jan. 6 Capitol breach and has been held there for months.

Jorden Mink, the defendant in the case, was indicted (pdf) on several federal charges, including destruction of government property and theft. Mink, who has pleaded not guilty
"Wudn't me."
, has been held in jail since January. Officials have alleged Mink used a baseball bat to smash windows at the Capitol and passed furniture through the smashed windows to the crowd outside.

"I can’t allow someone to sit in prison for this long without access to material," Judge Randolph Moss said at a court hearing on Thursday, saying the delay in evidence was "utterly unacceptable" and "not consistent with due process."

During the Thursday court hearing, prosecutors said they had given the evidence to the jail in May and didn’t understand why Mink hasn’t been able to obtain the documents. Mink was offered a plea deal, prosecutors noted, but they said he can’t decide on whether to accept the deal because he hasn’t seen the evidence against him.

Randolph ordered prosecutors to work with the jail to grant the defendant access to the evidence against him by the end of Thursday, reported CNN
...the organization formerly known as the Cable News Network. Now who knows what it might stand for...
. If Mink doesn’t gain access to the documents soon, the judge said, his detention may be reconsidered.

There have been other reports of Jan. 6 defendants not being able to gain access to evidence against them, essentially denying them due process under the Constitution’s Fifth Amendment. Prosecutors have suggested that due to the sheer number of arrests related to the incident, there have been delays.

So far, more than 500 defendants across nearly every U.S. state have been charged over the past six months over the Jan. 6 breach, according to the Department of Justice in early July.

AOC slams Rep. Boebert for calling for an end to extra jobless benefits at CPAC
[NYPOST] Rep. Alexandria Boom Boom Ocasio-Cortez
Dem Congressgirl from da Bronx in Noo Yawk and leader of the Mean Girl Caucus in Congress. One of the Great Minds of the 21st Century, she is known as much for her innaleck as for her dance moves. She is all in favor of socialism, even though she's fuzzy on the details. She was the inventor of the Green New Deal, though she doesn't talk about it much anymore...
took a shot at a Colorado Republican congresswoman who urged the government to end extra jobless benefits, saying Rep. Lauren Boebert was spouting "good ol conservative values."

"Tell ’em loud and proud girl! GOP will strip your unemployment protections and dismantle any semblance of a public safety net we have left!," the New York Democrat said on Twitter Saturday evening.

"Then make working people pay way more for everything on low wages while Wall St gets a meal ticket! Good ol conservative values baby!," she added.

Boebert, speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas, drew cheers when she blasted the Biden administration, the same old faces in slightly different places, the same old ideas, the same old graft
...knaves, footpads, and adjusters employed by the Biden Crime Family. They leave a trail of havoc everywhere they turn their attention, be it the nation's borders, the Keystone XL Pipeline, or epidemics, sometimes on purpose, most times through sheer arrogant ineptitude. They learnt this stuff in college, you know...
’s coronavirus (aka COVID19 or Chinese Plague)
