Chinese government hackers are busily targeting water treatment plants, the electrical grid, transportation systems and other critical infrastructure inside the United States, FBI Director Chris Wray will tell House lawmakers on Wednesday in a fresh warning from Washington about Beijing’s global ambitions. Wray will say that that there’s been “far too little public focus” on a cyber threat that affects “every American,” according to a copy of prepared remarks that he is to give before the House Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party.

This is why the push for digital currencies must be resisted- the ability to virtually turn off or steal your “money” - by a hacker or a government

When you read "FBI director warns", the FBI is cooking up a new plan for us! Like the time they warned about trouble at the capitol, and then their agents prompted chaos there.

Stopped clocks, and all that, but I think Wray may, for once, be right about something. Security on "the Internet of things" is often shockingly weak. The Internet is in some respects like an unguarded border that anybody may cross without scrutiny.

LIAR! This is laying the groundwork for another DeepState false flag so the Dimocrats can declare a state of emergency and manipulate the 2024 election. Sad when conspiracy theories are more plausible than anything coming from the FBI or other deepstate orgs. The FBI is not trustworthy.

If not China, they will be Russian, Iranian, North Korean, and on and on. I just want to know why we allow critical infrastructure to be accessed by the internet. They should be on networks disconnected from everything else. If the hackers want to break in, they have to do it in person.

Chances are adverse foreign intelligence agencies have been taking advantage of Biden’s and the leftist and socialist Democrat’s “open borders” and “catch and release” partisan leftist and socialist Democrat policies to get their agents and operatives into the USA. As they recognize that those policies are designed to flood the USA with Third World poor, uneducated, and non-English speaking illegal aliens (migrants) in which their agents and operatives can secret themselves. Those Biden and leftist and socialist Democrat bogus non-enforcement of the immigration laws scams have been using the fraudulent guise that such illegal aliens may be eligible for asylum in the USA in unlimited numbers and that the “right thing to do” is to allow them into the USA so that they may apply for asylum in the immigration courts that are already overwhelmed by millions of such asylum claim cases filed by illegal aliens. Those Biden and leftist and socialist Democrat policies are completely ridiculous as they apply to all the billions of people of Third World origin who simply have to appear at a US border and claim that they wish to enter the USA to apply for asylum, and in addition history shows that about 90% of such past borderline claimed asylum cases have been denied in the immigration courts after the illegal alien applicants were found not to be eligible for asylum because their claims were fraudulent, or did not meet the lawful showing that aliens must show to be eligible for asylum in the USA. Those denied asylum applicants, instead of then being deported, then simply disappeared back into the growing vast illegal alien population. The leftist and socialist Democrats are not completely stupid but are highly partisan and know that very high percentages of illegal aliens now being allowed by Biden to gain entry to the USA will never be granted asylum under the current immigration laws, and instead plan on granting just about the entire illegal alien population a Democrat designed “path to citizenship” amnesty and transform a very high percentage of those legalized foreigners into tens of millions of future leftist and socialist Democrat supporters and voters in the years ahead, using their “New American” supporters and voters to permanently politically control the Congress and the White House on into the future, thus sending the wimpy Republicans into political oblivion.

Why is it that, when Wray or any FBI operative is testifying before congress, they refuse to divulge information about "ongoing investigations", but in this case they freely reveal sensitive information (which certainly helps China, if true). Clearly this is an ongoing investigation, no? But they have no qualms about telling the Chicoms that FBI are onto them. If there is havok wreaked before the election, the FBI's telling us now to look at them first.

A little cautionary tale here. I've set up a home LAN on an old computer stuffed with drives where the wife and I can store and access files. At a certain point, I decided to open the SSH port to the internet so that I could share files with far-away friends, and could even access the server with my phone. Then I looked at the user logs- there were at least twenty break-in attempts a day, most just ham-fisted efforts to guess usernames and passwords. Almost all were traceable to Chinese IP numbers. Back in place went the firewall.

As he looks past the GOP primary and towards a likely general election rematch against President Joe Biden, Donald Trump will meet with members of the Teamsters Union in Washington Wednesday afternoon as he tries to cut into Biden’s support. The former president will participate in a roundtable with the group’s executive board, its president and rank-and-file members as he targets the blue-collar workers who fueled his 2016 victory and who are expected to play a major role in November, particularly in critical Midwestern swing states like Wisconsin and Michigan. Union voters tend to vote Democratic, with 56% of members and households backing Biden in 2020, according to AP VoteCast.

A Republican-led House panel approved articles of impeachment against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas early Wednesday for having “willfully and systematically” flouted federal immigration laws and breached the public trust. The House Homeland Security Committee voted 18-15 along party lines for the two articles of impeachment, affirming that Mayorkas failed to detain migrants crossing the border before deciding whether to grant asylum. The articles also state that the secretary ignored records requests from the committee and misled Congress about having “operational control” of the US border and maintaining that it is “secure.”

A 33-year-old firefighter and father of three died from injuries he sustained while battling a massive blaze in New Jersey early Friday morning. Officials in the city of Plainfield are mourning the loss of Marques Hudson, a hometown hero who rushed into a raging inferno at a two-story family home on Emerson Avenue just after 8 a.m. Hudson had been a firefighter with the city for only two years. He was the first firefighter to die in the line of duty in recent memory, city officials said. The heroic first responder never emerged from the blaze, prompting a mayday call, Plainfield Mayor Adrian Mapp said during a press conference.

A slew of Republican pols Sunday quickly called on President Biden to retaliate against Iran after three US service members were killed and 34 others wounded in an attack by Iranian-backed militants in Jordan. “Hit Iran now. Hit them hard,” wrote Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), well-known for his hawkish views, on X. When the Biden Administration says ‘don’t’, the Iranians ‘do’. The Biden Administration’s rhetoric is falling on deaf ears in Iran,” Graham said. “Iran is undeterred,” he said. “The only thing the Iranian regime understands is force. Until they pay a price with their infrastructure and their personnel, the attacks on U.S. troops will continue.”

But initially, they were only able to arrest four of them, when obviously there were more than four involved.

At around 10:15 p.m. on Saturday, officers took Kelvin Servat Arocha, 19, and Wilson Juarez, 21, into custody. All four suspects were released hours later with no bail.

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden on Thursday issued an executive order that targets Israeli settlers in the West Bank who have been accused of attacking Palestinians in the occupied territory, imposing financial sanctions and visa bans in an initial round against four individuals. Those settlers were involved in acts of violence, as well as threats and attempts to destroy or seize Palestinian property, according to the order. The penalties aim to block the four from using the U.S. financial system and bar American citizens from dealing with them. U.S. officials said they were evaluating whether to punish others involved in attacks that have intensified during the Israel-Hamas war.

The Oregon Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that 10 Republican state senators are ineligible to run for reelection after they participated in a quorum-denying walkout for six weeks last year to stall legislation on abortion, transgender treatments and firearms. The high court decided in favor of Oregon Secretary of State LaVonne Griffin-Valade, who had disqualified the senators from running for office again after voters approved a measure in 2022 to amend the state constitution to ban lawmakers with more than 10 unexcused absences from running again.

Ms. Griffin-Valade said in 2023 that the senators, under the measure, could not try for another term. “My decision honors the voters’ intent by enforcing the measure the way it was commonly understood when Oregonians added it to our state constitution,”
