China Is Buying Up American Farms. Washington Wants To Crack Down.

 

The push to drain China’s influence from the U.S. economy has reached America’s farm country, as congressional lawmakers from both parties are looking at measures to crack down on foreign purchases of prime agricultural real estate.

House lawmakers recently advanced legislation to that effect, warning that China’s presence in the American food system poses a national security risk. And key Senate lawmakers have already shown interest in efforts to keep American farms in American hands.

Donald Trump's Latest Dangerous Vaccine Pronouncement

 

The numbers are deeply worrisome.Covid-19 cases -- fueled by the fast-spreading Delta variant -- have nearly tripled over the past three weeksEvery state in the country has seen an increase in cases.

It is, by any measure, a fraught moment in the 16-month fight against the virus. People need to get vaccinated or run the very real risk of getting the Delta variant.
At moments like these, leaders matter. What our elected officials say (and do) about vaccines matter -- they model behavior that, ideally, people follow. 
Enter Donald Trump.
"Joe Biden kept talking about how good of a job he's doing on the distribution of the Vaccine that was developed by Operation Warp Speed or, quite simply, the Trump Administration," the 45th president said in a statement released via his Save America PAC on Sunday. "He's not doing well at all. He's way behind schedule, and people are refusing to take the Vaccine because they don't trust his Administration, they don't trust the Election results, and they certainly don't trust the Fake News, which is refusing to tell the Truth."

US Issues ‘Urgently Needed’ Cybersecurity Warning To Pipeline Operators Amid New Rift With China Over Hacking

 

The Department of Homeland Security has ordered pipeline owners and operators to implement “urgently needed protections” against cyberattacks, in the second such directive since a crippling ransomware attack in May.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued its latest directive to pipeline owners and operators on Tuesday, more than two months after a ransomware attack shut down a critical gasoline and diesel pipeline carrying half the fuel supply of the entire US East Coast. The attack forced the line’s operator, Colonial Pipeline, to shut much of its network for several days, until a ransom was paid to the cybercriminals responsible.

The directive asks companies like Colonial Pipeline to “implement specific mitigation measures to protect against ransomware attacks,” to “develop and implement a cybersecurity contingency and recovery plan,” and to “conduct a cybersecurity architecture design review.”  Read More

French President Emmanuel Macron Has ‘Gone Mad’

Spiked Online Editor Brendan O’Neill says French President Emmanuel Macron has “gone mad”. “If you look at his vaccine passport idea, it is absolutely crazy,” Mr O’Neill told Sky News host Rita Panahi. “He wants to have a severe system whereby if you aren’t double vaccinated then you basically are no longer a free citizen. “I’m delighted to see people protesting, the way to encourage people to get the vaccination is through persuasion, not through authoritarianism and our leaders should remember that.”

Hannity Pleads With His Viewers To Get Vaccinated: 'I Believe In The Science Of Vaccination'

 

On Monday's Hannity, Fox News primetime host Sean Hannity urged his viewers to get the COVID-19 vaccination.

"Please take COVID seriously," begged Hannity. "I can't say it enough. Enough people have died. We don't need anymore death. Research like crazy. Talk to your doctor, your doctors, medical professionals you trust based on your unique medical history, your current medical condition, and you and your doctor make a very important decision for your own safety. Take it seriously."

Preliminary data from several states has shown that over the past few months, 99.5 percent of the people who have died from COVID were unvaccinated, and Hannity's plea comes as the highly contagious Delta variant, which is now the dominant strain in the United States, spreads throughout the country.
