Trump Seeks to Ban TikTok

President Trump has announced he plans to ban TikTok in the US. The social media app is highly popular with young people. However, there are concerns that the Chinese owned app is gaining access to US teens personal data, and is a security risk.

TikTok has also seen calls for its ban in other countries over safe guarding issues. Children have been targeted by paedophiles on the app. TikTok have been criticized for not doing enough to protect children from being groomed.

How to hide in plain sight- A growing fashion trend

Artists and fashion designers are coming up with novel ways to stay private in public

Emily Roderick, 23, and her cohorts in “The Dazzle Club” walked around the British capital last week with blue, red and black stripes painted across their faces in an effort to escape the watchful eye of facial-recognition cameras.

The artists took their silent stroll through the city’s King’s Cross area hoping their bold make-up would act as camouflage and confuse the cameras.

“We’re hiding in plain sight,” Roderick told the Thomson Reuters Foundation, explaining that bright colours and dark shades of make-up are known to hamper a camera’s ability to accurately recognise faces.

In Hong Kong, for example, protesters against a bill that would have allowed people to be sent to mainland China for trial have sought to avoid surveillance by wearing masks and dressing in black.

Protesters in Hong Kong Sing Hallelujah to the Lord

A simple hymn sung in Hong Kong’s churches has become the anthem of the protesters across the city. The protests are about new extradition laws that China want to impose on Hong Kong.

At first the Christian protestors hoped the hymn would release tensions with the police. For Christians the protests are not only political but also religious. They can see the new laws being used to limit religious freedoms they enjoy, but are not shared by the church in mainland China. Many Christians in Hong Kong have smuggled Bibles to the mainland, and the new laws could see them arrested and sent their to face trial. Hong Kong is also a safe haven for Chinese believers who have fled the persecution of the mainland.

However, the hymn has quickly been taken up by all the protestors, not only those of faith. The Hong Kong authorities have said have suspended the bill, however protestors say they will continue until the bill is scrapped entirely.

RADICAL: Democrat Bill Would Block States From Passing Pro-Life Laws, Upend Laws On The Books

On Thursday, Congressional Democrats held a press conference flanked by Planned Parenthood president Leana Wen boasting of new legislation intended to cripple states from enacting pro-life legislation and remove pro-life laws already on the books.

CLICK FOR VIDEO

The legislation has a predictably euphemistic name, the “Women’s Health Protection Act” (WHPA), and is sponsored by Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Rep. Judy Chu (D-CA).

The proposed bill would block and upend vital pro-life legislation, such as so-called “heartbeat bills” — which protect unborn babies with a detectable heartbeat from abortion — waiting periods, and mandates on ultrasounds, among other abortion restrictions.

More US States to Mandate LGBTQ History in Public Schools

There are a growing number of States who are mandating the teaching of LGBTQ history in schools. California was the first state to bring such curriculum into law in 2011 , New Jersey followed suit in January of this year, however limiting the curriculum to Middle and High Schoolers.

Colorado is likely to be the next to bring the new curriculum for K-12 into law in the coming weeks. As the first openly gay governor of the State, Jared Polis, will review the legislation and decide whether or not to sign off on it.

The True Scale of American Debt: $220,000 for Every Man, Woman, and Child

The 22 trillion dollar debt of the federal government receives a lot of  media attention. But this is only part of the picture. The true figure is an additional 50 trillion dollars.

When discussing America’s debt problem we have to also consider: corporate debt, which has doubled since the last financial crisis; consumer debt, accounting for $13 trillion; and state and local government debt, growing at an alarming rate.

So that is $72,000,000,000,000 and works out at $220,000 for every man, woman and child in the US.

Chilling World War III ‘wargames’ show US forces crushed by Russia and China

RAND Senior Defense Analyst David Ochmanek discussed the simulations at the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) in Washington D.C. last week. “In our games, where we fight China or Russia … blue gets its a** handed to it, not to put too fine a point on it,” he said, during a panel discussion. Blue denotes U.S. forces in the simulations.

Russia and China have amassed large inventories of precision-guided cruise missiles and ballistic missiles that can reach hundreds of miles and strike military targets, the researcher said. Set against this backdrop, U.S. military outposts and aircraft carriers in the contested regions could face a potential devastating barrage of missiles.
