The closure of China’s Houston consulate is the latest move in a weeks-long escalation of tensions between the United States and China over geopolitics, technological interference, global health, and human rights.

Many expect the confrontation to only further escalate with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s planned speech at the Nixon Library in California on Thursday.

The announcement comes a day after Houston firefighters responded to a call at the consulate, where papers were allegedly being burned.

The firefighters, however, were denied entry.

Hydroxychloroquine could save up to 100,000 lives if used for COVID-19: Yale epidemiology professor

“There are many doctors that I’ve gotten hostile remarks about saying that all the evidence is bad for it and, in fact, that is not true at all,” Risch told “Ingraham Angle,” adding that he believes the drug can be used as a “prophylactic” for front-line workers, as other countries like India have done.

Risch lamented that a “propaganda war” is being waged against the use of the drug for political purposes, not based on “medical facts.”

Researchers at the Henry Ford Health System in Southeast Michigan have found that early administration of hydroxychloroquine makes hospitalized patients substantially less likely to die.

Yesterday’s Google “Glitch” that Disappeared Conservative Websites Reveals Secret Blacklist – Proves CEO Sundar Pichai Lied to Congress Under Oath

It is clear today that Google, Facebook and Twitter are using their own political blacklists to censor and diminish traffic to prominent conservative publishers and their supporters.

If you search Google for prominent conservative voices including: Mike Cernovich, Joe diGenova, Jack Posobiec or Gateway Pundit you will see hit pieces and biased attacks.

In April 2019 Project Veritas released leaked documents from a Google insider that revealed The Gateway Pundit, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Newsbusters, American Thinker, MRCTV, American Lookout, Twitchy, Daily Caller, Natural News, The Rebel Media, LifeNews, BizPac Review, YoungCons and many others were being targeted, censored, blacklisted and silenced by Google.

Google Censors Top Conservative and Pro-Life News Web Sites From Search Results

Google users wouldn’t know that conservative websites like NewsBusters, The Daily Wire, and Breitbart exist if they consulted an organic search result on the platform today.

The company has seemingly blacklisted numerous conservative websites like NewsBusters, MRCTV, CNSNews, Free Beacon, Breitbart, The Resurgent, Twitchy, RedState, PJ Media, Judicial Watch, The Blaze, Townhall, Project Veritas, LifeNews, PragerU, and The Daily Wire. None of these websites show up in an organic search on Google.

While more than 3.5 billion Google searches are performed per day, certain conservative news sites appear prohibited from appearing in the general results.

Twitter will stop recommending accounts and content related to QAnon, including material in email and follow recommendations, and it will take steps to limit circulation of content in features like trends and search.

The action will affect about 150,000 accounts, said a spokesperson, who asked to remain unnamed because of concerns about the targeted harassment of social media employees.

The spokesperson said that as part of its new policy, the company had taken down more than 7,000 QAnon accounts in the last few weeks for breaking its rules on targeted harassment.

Jordan: Obama Biden Admin Had No Proper Predicate For FBI Trump Probe. There Must Be Indictments.

Rep. Jim Jordan told Fox News Wednesday that former FBI and Obama officials must be held accountable for dragging the nation through four years of turmoil in an investigation against President Donald Trump and his campaign that in “their own words” was not predicated on any real evidence.

Jordan, the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, said the “Obama- Biden intelligence community told us” they didn’t have any evidence showing the Trump campaign was conspiring with Russia.

The investigation into Trump was purely political and based on lies, he added.

Iranian Hezbollah Poised for Large-Scale Attack on Israel, Says Former IDF Officer

Hezbollah forces have been building complex tunnels and amassing arms along Israel’s northern border with Lebanon in recent months, generating concerns the Iranian-backed terror group is planning a large-scale attack reminiscent of its 2006 cross-border raid that resulted in the deaths of three Israeli soldiers and the capture of two others.

The militant group is consolidating its forces and conducting movements reminiscent of the lead-up to that 2006 attack, according to former IDF intelligence officer Sarit Zehavi, who spent 15 years in the Israeli military and now runs the Alma Research and Education Center, which has been investigating Hezbollah movements along the border area with Israel.

Zehavi briefed reporters on the developing situation on Wednesday during a call hosted by Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Pakistanis say India deliberately hits civilians in Kashmir

Pakistan and India have fought two of their three wars over the disputed region since gaining independence from British rule in 1947.

“Indian forces have been intentionally targeting us,” said Abdul Aziz, 57, who was wounded July 3 when shrapnel from an Indian mortar wounded his arm. “Even our last child will fight to defend Kashmir if India attacks us.”

Indian officials did not immediately comment but in the past they have accused Pakistan of starting the hostilities in violation of a 2003 accord and causing casualties in the Indian part of Kashmir.

After an effort by the legacy media to disappear the story, the nation is finally hearing about the mayhem and violence overtaking Portland, Oregon.

For almost two months, the city has been in the grip of typical vandalism, chaos and bedlam that is the hallmark of the fascist group Antifa, a federally declared terrorist group.

They, along with the Democratic-aligned Marxist group Black Lives Matter, have made Portland a hellscape for the law-abiding citizens who live there.

This story is now only being covered because President Trump realized local Democratic leadership had no real interest in ending the chaos and sent in federal law enforcement to establish the law and order every American wants and deserves.

Should We Defund the Police?

Wow! You have to wonder how many Americans hold the same (VERY-incorrect) assumptions.
