Big Brother Knows Best — at least in Oregon
Ever since Hillary Clinton’s now infamous statement from decades past, “it takes a village to raise a child,” such Socialist ideologies have been taking on gaining momentum. This ideology is now germinating in pending legislation in the state of Oregon. Oregon Governor Kate Brown is on record supporting ‘universal’ gov’t visits for all newborns and families. Brown is on board with a bill which would establish “universal” invasive home visits by state employees to all households with newborns is causing shockwaves throughout the nation.
While the proposed legislation, known as Senate Bill 526, remains in an infancy form with very few published details, it has nonetheless generated great excitement among progressive statists while sending chills down the spines of parents and families who fear increased government interference in their private lives.
President Trump Okay with Another Shutdown. In the aftermath following the longest government shutdown in US history, Democrats and FAKENEWS sources were quick to proclaim victory, stating that “Trump Caved.” KNews is not sure how opening a three week window, encouraging dialogue and negotiations is “caving” President Trump remains the only voice of reason in the midst of insanity. The Democrats, during the shutdown refused multiple invitations to sit down with the president. In relaying his willingness to reinstate the shutdown, Trump is also weighing his options to build “the wall” using executive orders, using funding from other alternative sources. We MUST recall at this point that each Democrat leader involved in this current debate has voted in favor of border security and a wall/fence/barrier, in the past. This current so called controversy is little more than Democrat, anti-Trump, partisan politics.
Government agencies reopening today, after President Trump signed legislation crafted by congressional leaders and his administration to end the 35-day partial government shutdown. The bill funds the government through Feb. 15, giving lawmakers time to negotiate long-term funding and border security bills. Some 800,000 federal employees — including 380,000 furloughed workers — missed two paychecks during the five-week long shutdown.
The Securities and Exchange Committee is looking into the finances of Japanese car maker Nissan, reports The Wall Street Journal. This follows the arrest last November in Japan of its former chairman Carlos Ghosn, who stands accused by authorities of siphoning millions of dollars from the car company. The early stage investigation by the S.E.C. “hasn’t extended beyond a request for information,” according to anonymous sources cited by the Journal. Although Nissan does not trade in the U.S., it uses a U.S. bank for some of its business, thus exposing it to possible penalties from the regulator.
California is suing one of its own cities, Huntington Beach, alleging that the city has blocked the construction of adequate affordable housing. The lawsuit, at the request of Governor Gavin Newsom, may be the first of many to come from the state; it is based on a 2015 law requiring local governments to provide housing that keeps up with the pace of job and population growth. The state’s median home price increased 6% in 2018 to $570,010 — more than double the national median of $259,100.
There’s a sizable shortage of professionals equipped to respond to cyber-threats — with estimates that the industry is lacking close to 3 million workers across the globe, according to a recent study by nonprofit cybersecurity association (ISC)2. Some companies have tried to fill the gap with artificial intelligence and machine learning, but those technologies are in a nascent stage and will not address the larger problem.
