‘We must work to root out the hatreds’: Biden admin. announces plan to combat domestic terrorism

District of Columbia | June 15, 2021

The Biden administration unveiled an aggressive plan Tuesday for federal agencies to crack down on the threat of domestic terrorism and White supremacists.

The four-pronged plan calls for increasing the number of prosecutors and intelligence analysts, bolstering the screening of government employees for ties to extremist groups, improving information sharing with social media and better cooperation among federal agencies.

“This is a project that should unite all Americans,” President Biden said in a statement. “Together, we must affirm that domestic terrorism has no place in our society. We must work to root out the hatreds that can too often drive violence.”..

In Wake of Beef Supplier Attack, Wittman Co-Signs Agriculture Intelligence Measures Act

Virginia | June 14, 2021

Congressman Rob Wittman (R-Virginia-01) was one of six Republicans last week who cosigned a bill that would create an Office of Intelligence in the Department of Agriculture. The bill was originally introduced by Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) and Congressman Rick Crawford (R-Arkansas-02) last fall, but the current House version, HR 1625, has gradually gained Republican cosigners this spring.

Two weeks ago, JBS, an international meat supplier, fell victim to a severe cyber attack,” Wittman explained in a Friday newsletter. “This marks the second attack targeting the production of American commodities, such as gasoline and food. This attack highlights the threat cyberattacks potentially pose to the American food supply chain.”

The bill text says the new Office of Intelligence will work with the intelligence community to keep the Secretary of Agriculture informed of foreign threats. Specifically, the office should focus on foreign efforts to steal agriculture technology, biological warfare attacks, cyber operations, and other sabotage or disruption of U.S. agriculture. The bill would transfer functions, assets, and personnel from an agriculture section of the Office of Homeland Security to the new office in the Department of Agriculture.

According to Bloomberg, JBS is based in Brazil, and in addition to closing facilities that provide almost a quarter of U.S.’ beef, the attack also forced shutdowns in Australia and Canada. The hackers targeted JBS computer networks in a ransomware attack. White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre said the FBI was investigating the attack, which likely originated from a criminal group in Russia, according to CNBC.

Senator Blackburn and Fauci Go Toe-to-Toe Over His Emails and Relationship with Big Tech

Tennessee | June 14, 2021

Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) challenged Dr. Anthony Fauci this week over his handling of COVID-19 and apparent collusion with Big Tech. Following the mass release of Fauci’s emails through an open records request last week, Blackburn published a video Tuesday to offer some summarized insight on Fauci’s involvement in the COVID-19 outbreak and his email correspondence with Facebook.

“Here are the facts on Fauci that big tech doesn’t want you to know,” tweeted Blackburn.

Blackburn explained that Fauci and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg discussed means of controlling the narrative around COVID-19, and shared how the National Institute of Health (NIH) provided nearly $1 million to Wuhan lab research under Fauci’s directive.

Okay, a lot of information going on stirring around the Wuhan lab and COVID-19. Here are some facts that I want you to know. First of all – yes, Dr. Fauci was emailing with Mark Zuckerberg from Facebook, trying to create that narrative, cherry-picking information so that you would only know what they wanted you to know and there would be a narrative that would fit with this cherry-picked information. The second thing [to] be aware of: it was Dr. Fauci and his agency that wrote that check, sent that money to the Wuhan Institute of Virology to do this coronavirus research…

Republican Senators Reintroduce Legislation to Hold Chinese Officials Accountable for COVID-19

District of Columbia | June 11, 2021

A group of Republican senators has reintroduced legislation with the aim to hold Chinese officials accountable for suppressing and distorting information about the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The Chinese Communist Party silenced Dr. Li and many others for attempting to speak the truth about the coronavirus outbreak and Beijing’s involvement. Meanwhile, they stood by as the virus spread around the world–resulting in loss of life and loss of livelihood for millions,” stated Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), according to a statement from her office on June 10…

White House tells federal agencies to prepare return-to-work plans

District of Columbia | June 11, 2021

The White House on Thursday lifted a cap on employees working in federal buildings and directed agencies to prepare plans to allow employees to return to work in-person.

The move is the latest sign of conditions in Washington returning to normal as more and more people get vaccinated against COVID-19 in the United States.

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) memo sent to agency heads directs them to complete plans for “reentry” by July 19 that detail when and how an increased number of employees can return to in-person work.

ADVERTISEMENT

“Agency plans for reentry and post-reentry should be informed by lessons learned during the past 15 months. The agency’s eventual post-pandemic operating state may differ in significant ways from the agency’s pre-pandemic operating state,” the OMB memo states.

The new guidance lifts a previous cap limiting the number of people in federal workplaces to 25 percent of normal capacity, though agencies’ COVID-19 health safety plans remain in place and employees are still allowed broad discretion to work from home. The federal government’s operating status remains “Open with maximum telework flexibilities,” it says…
