Tuesday, July 16, 2019

United States President Donald Trump said on Tuesday he wants his administration to "take a look" into whether Google has been working with the Chinese government -- an allegation swiftly denied by the US internet giant.

Google has limited business operations in China, but one report this year said one of its scientists participated in a research project that could have both civilian and military applications.

Everyday I scan the news with "Let's see what did he do now???".... and I am never disappointed.

Orangutan.

This seems to have its roots in Peter Thiel

A few questions for Peter Thiel
www.axios.com

...Peter Thiel doubled down last night on his "Google has maybe been infiltrated by the Chinese government" claim, which was eventually picked up by President Trump. When (lightly) pressed for evidence, Thiel simply said he was "asking questions."

Why it matters: You don't propose that someone deserves to face a firing squad without at least a single receipt.

So a few questions for Mr. Thiel:

- Have you shorted Google stock or is Palantir currently competing with Google for a major U.S. government contract?

- You've said on the record that you're "not a vampire." Are you able to provide independent verification of this claim? Because, were you a vampire, it could pose a national security risk given your ties with senior U.S. officials.

- Is it because you're actually a vampire that you deny being a vampire? And would that not be seemingly treasonous, in that the generally accepted societal punishment is death (albeit by wooden stake, in this case)?...

fwiw... Axios has a couple of links in its article with more info on Mr Thiel's comments and this topic in general, if you're interested.

Orange Adolf should be the last person talking about treason when he has Daddy Vlad's DNA dripping off his chin.

This is the executive branch's response to Facebook getting off cheap for 5B. They work by quotas and the batteries are running low on the Drumpf speed detector.

Mr Thiel is also on Facebook's Board of Directors, and Facebook happens to be a significant competitor to google.

No conflict of interest here. Move on....

He's rich so of course Trump is going to listen to him. And Libs want America to fail so of course they are not going to be concerned about treason. These comments on here are pretty much 100% of what can be expected in this country.

Of course "Libs" are worried about treason.

That is why they want to impeach Traitor Trump.

The Collusion Delusion was an Illusion.

Treason is the Reason for the Season.
