. Just yesterday, the public learned about a federal investigation into Google’s “Project Nightingale” (a deal with a large hospital group to build out a new cloud-storage system for patient’s sensitive medical data, effectively placing that extremely valuable data in Google’s hands).

And back in September, Ireland’s data regulator launched an investigation into whether Google’s online advertising exchange illegally taps into sensitive personal information about Internet users. That investigation stemmed from a complaint made by an executive at a much-smaller rival search company called Brave.

Justice Ginsburg Misses Supreme Court Arguments With Stomach Bug

Chief Justice John Roberts said from the bench that Ginsburg, 86, was “indisposed due to illness” but would participate in the day’s two cases based on the briefs and transcripts.

Ginsburg, a four-time cancer survivor, had actively taken part in the previous day’s arguments, including a clash over President Donald Trump’s bid to end a deferred-deportation program for 660,000 young immigrants.

Until this year, Ginsburg, the leader of the court’s liberal wing, had never missed a Supreme Court argument because of illness. She skipped two weeks in January after having two cancerous growths removed from a lung. She later took part in the court’s decisions in those cases.

Ginsburg has become a celebrity among liberals, inspiring movies, books and memes and drawing raucous applause at her public appearances. Some 16,000 people attended when she appeared in Little Rock, Arkansas, in September with former President Bill Clinton, who appointed her to the co

RAY McGOVERN: Ukraine For Dummies

Special to Consortium News

At Wednesday’s debut of the impeachment hearings there was one issue upon which both sides of the aisle seemed to agree, and it was a comic-book caricature of reality.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff led off the proceedings with this: “In 2014, Russia invaded a United States ally, Ukraine, to reverse that nation’s embrace of the West, and to fulfill Vladimir Putin’s desire to rebuild a Russian empire…”

Five years ago, when Ukraine first came into the news, those Americans who thought Ukraine was an island in the Pacific can perhaps be forgiven. That members of the House Intelligence Committee don’t know — or pretend not to know — more accurate information about Ukraine is a scandal, and a consequential one.

As Professor Stephen Cohen has warned, if the impeachment process does not deal in objective fact, already high tensions with Russia are likely to become even mor

Quigley's Greatest Con

I won’t beat around the bush. All of the hate-mongering against Donald Trump in Washington, D.C., is nothing more than public theater—and that includes Trump’s forthcoming impeachment. It is all public theater. Nothing more. In fact, the more opposition Trump receives, the more popular he becomes. And that’s the whole purpose.

Donald Trump is not an outsider. He is not anti-establishment. He is not anti-globalist. He is the globalists’ perfect con on the American people. He tells them what they want to hear but in reality changes nothing of importance to the establishment elite. But Trump makes everybody think he’s changing things. Like I said, Trump is the globalists’ perfect con.

David Risselada recently wrote an astute and accurate analysis of this giant con going on in Washington, D.C. He titled his missive Political Theater: Trump vs. The Left and the unnoticed approach of the police st

The Facebook app has been quietly turning on people's cameras and freaking them out

So paranoid 21st-century folk may not be entirely happy to hear about a ‘bug’ which turns on their phone’s camera whilst they’re using the Facebook app. The glitch affects iPhone owners, who said their camera suddenly switched itself on while they were scrolling through their feed, watching videos or looking at photos. When people turned the video to full-screen mode and then switched back to Facebook’s normal view, they could see a little open space on the left and the camera app in the background. Several people have tweeted about the bug and it has been replicated by tech journalists. Daryl Lasafin, a creative director, tweeted: ‘Facebook app on iOS 13.2.2 opens my phone’s rear camera when I open a profile photo swipe down to return (look at the little slit on the left of the video). Is this an app bug or an iOS bug??’

Steven Crowder shares ‘chilling’ YouTube behavior during Gabbard’s fight against Clinton

The conservative YouTuber risked his 4.18 million-strong channel by directly taking on the social media giant’s meddling in news cycles.

At issue were search results around the world for Ms. Gabbard, the Hawaii Democrat who is vying to become the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nominee, and claims by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that she is a “favorite” with “the Russians,” who are grooming her to run a spoiler third-party candidacy.

“We decided to again, while Tulsi Gabbard was in the spotlight, run some comparative searches on YouTube,” Mr. Crowder said Tuesday. “When we set our VPN … to a non-United States country and we searched for Tulsi Gabbard [on Friday], her channel and the videos from her channel all showed up first. Yet, again, when we switched our searches to the United States, however, nothing. Exclusively in the United States, the country in which she is currently running fo

Rand Paul Drops The ‘C’-Word: Names Whistleblower, Demands Testimony

Read more on this subject: Whistleblowers
News Story Source: https://www.zerohedge.com, by Tyler Durden
Over the weekend, Senator Paul said the whistleblower’s name should be released.

And today, Senator Paul has named the whistleblower publicly…Eric Ciamerella

During a Wednesday interview on Washington, D.C.-based WMAL, Paul named Ciaramella himself and said he should be brought in testify to clarify whether he is indeed the whistleblower.

“I think Eric Ciaramella needs to be pulled in for testimony, and then I think it will be ultimately determined at that point,” said Paul.

“But I think he is a person of interest in the sense that he was at the Ukraine desk when Joe Biden was there when Hunter Biden was working for the Ukrainian oligarch. So simply for that alone, I think he’s a material witness who needs to be brought in.”

This is What You Should Be Doing Instead of Watching the Impeachment Hearings

After you watch it, you will think President Trump deserves a medal for trying to uncover the shady goings-on in Ukraine that involved an American driven coup of the democratically elected Ukranian president and the shady operations to help Hillary Clinton in her 2016 presidential election bid, not to mention the crony stuff the Bidens were up to.

As I have written before. I see nothing wrong with Trump proposing a quid pro quo to get to the bottom of what was going on in Ukraine. (SEE: The Impeachment Show Inquiry: An Assessment).

After you watch this documentary, you will wonder why Trump isn’t going even more aggressively to expose what has been going on in Ukraine with American operatives.

Well, there is good news. Once the impeachment show is over, friends tell me Trump is going to hit back nuclear style exposing the Democrats and their sinister operations in Ukraine.
