The Disney company had its lawsuit against Gov Ron DeSantis tossed out yesterday as a U.S. District Judge said that Disney lacked standing and lacked merit. Disney has now lost control of a district that it was once allowed to "govern" back in a far better time in America. Disney will appeal the decision.
Meanwhile, there were two import hearings going on in congress. One was an explosive hearing concerning big tech's failure to protect children on its sites. That story is already on our front page thanks to management. The other hearing concerned China's targeting of American infrastructure:
US officials say they have disrupted a state-backed Chinese effort to plant malware that could damage civilian infrastructure, as the head of the FBI warned that Beijing was positioning itself to disrupt daily life in America were the US and China ever to go to war.
The operation disrupted a botnet of hundreds of small office and home routers based in the US that were owned by private citizens and companies that had been hijacked by the Chinese hackers to cover their tracks as they sowed malware.
Their ultimate targets included water treatment plants, the electrical grid and transportation systems across the US, official said on Wednesday.
The comments align with assessments from outside cybersecurity firms including Microsoft , which said in May that state-backed Chinese hackers had been targeting US critical infrastructure and could be laying the technical groundwork for the potential disruption of critical communications between the US and Asia during future crises.

The world still waits to find out what Joe Biden will do about the killing of 3 US service members and the wounding of about 40 others. He says he knows what he wants to do. It is amazing that the idea of this happening never crossed his mind. One would think that there would already be a plan should something like this happen.
Biden says he can do whatever he wants without congressional approval. The opposite of what he said when Donald Trump and George W Bush were President.

Rep Ilhan Omar had this to say:
"For as long as I am in the U.S. Congress , Somalia will never be in danger, its waters will not be stolen by Ethiopia or others … Sleep in comfort, knowing I am here to protect the interests of Somalia from inside the U.S. system."

And unbelievably there is this:
NASHVILLE — Six pro-lifers were found guilty on Tuesday after the Biden administration charged them over a peaceful protest at a Tennessee abortion facility in 2021. They face up to 10.5 years in prison.
The pro-life activists were accused by the Department of Justice of violating the FACE Act and civil rights conspiracy for a protest that took place in a hallway outside of a Mount Juliet abortion provider on March 5, 2021. On that day, a group of demonstrators gathered on the second floor of an office building in the hallway outside the Carafem Health Center Clinic. The group prayed, sang hymns, and urged women showing up to the clinic to not get abortions.

And our great critical thinkers and indoctrinated democrats tell us that they don't see two systems of justice, nor do they think Biden's DOJ is corrupt.
