Christine Blasey Ford HONORED By ‘Time’ Magazine With Prestigious Award (Details)

Kamala Harris wrote her intro!

Just when you think you may never hear the name “Christine Blasey Ford” again, Time magazine goes and does something like this.

Apparently, Blasey Ford is one of the “100 Most Influential People” in the world.

Why?

What point is being made here?

A woman is honored for impugning the character of a man – without any evidence – simply because she and Democrats dislike the president of the United States?

Here’s the deal

Sen. Kamala Harris lauded Christine Blasey Ford for her “courage” in forcing the nation to “reckon with an issue that has too often been ignored and kept in the dark” in a tribute to Blasey Ford who was listed as one of Time magazine’s “100 Most Influential People.”

“Christine Blasey Ford’s ambition wasn’t to become a household name or make it onto this list,” the California Democrat wrote. “She had a good life and a successful career — and risked everything to send a warning in a moment of grave consequence.”

Something is definitely wrong with this picture.

Sex crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, the woman who asked the majority of questions for Republicans during Ford’s testimony before the Judiciary Committee, later appeared to have completely exonerated Kavanaugh.

In late 2018, Ford earned $650,000. Here’s why…

From Daily Wire:

Christine Blasey Ford, a California woman who accused then-Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh of decades-old sexual misconduct without a shred of corroborating evidence, collected nearly $650,000 from a GoFundMe account last week and released a rare statement post-Kavanaugh hearings.

Blasey Ford described the donations as a “godsend” and announced that she would finally be closing the account to further monetary offerings. Justice Kavanaugh was confirmed to the court on October 6, some seven weeks before Blasey Ford closed the account.

She wrote:

The funds you have sent through GoFundMe have been a godsend. Your donations have allowed us to take reasonable steps to protect ourselves against frightening threats, including physical protection and security for me and my family, and to enhance the security for our home.

With immense gratitude, I am closing this account to further contributions.

All funds unused after completion of security expenditures will be donated to organizations that support trauma survivors. I am currently researching organizations where the funds can best be used. We will use this space to let you know when that process is complete.

Words are not adequate to thank all of you who supported me since I came forward to tell the Senate that I had been sexually assaulted by Brett Kavanaugh. Your tremendous outpouring of support and kind letters have made it possible for us to cope with the immeasurable stress, particularly the disruption to our safety and privacy. Because of your support, I feel hopeful that our lives will return to normal.

Let us hear your thoughts on Time magazine’s decision…

Police Say Buffalo Supermarket Shooting was Racially Motivated

Local authorities described the crime as “pure evil”.

Published

on

On Saturday, a young gunman walked into a quiet grocery store in Buffalo, New York and opened fire.

The scene was described as chaotic and “armageddon-like”, as the killer stalked through the store expressionless, cold, and live-streaming the whole thing to the internet.  When the horror ended, ten were dead, several others injured, and the city of Buffalo was left scarred.

Now, in a deplorable revelation, police are disclosing that the crime was racially motivated.

An 18-year-old white gunman shot 10 people to death and wounded three on Saturday at a grocery store in a Black neighborhood of upstate New York, before surrendering after what authorities called an act of “racially motivated violent extremism.”

Authorities said the suspect, who was armed with an assault-style rifle and appeared to have acted alone, drove to Buffalo from his home several hours away to launch the afternoon attack that he broadcast in real time on social media platform Twitch, a live video service owned by Amazon.com.

Eleven of the 13 people struck by gunfire were Black, officials said. The two others were white. The racial breakdown of the dead was not made clear.

Hateful online content has been attributed to the killer.

A document circulating online that appeared to have been written by the killer sketched out a to-do list for the attack, including cleaning the gun and testing the livestream.

In addition, a 180-page manifesto outlining ‘The Great Replacement Theory’ – the idea that white people are being replaced by minorities in the United States and other countries – also circulated online, reportedly authored by Gendron.

The suspect has suggested that he chose this particular grocery store on account of the high minority demographics within the ZIP code, further corroborating his hateful basis.

Wearable Google Device Could Translate Language in Real Time

WHOA!

While there are certainly plenty of reasons to worry about the never-ending march into the technological dystopia before us, we have to admit that some of what were seeing is still pretty darn cool.

For many of us, it’s as though we’re living in an episode of The Jetsons.  Self-driving cars, video phone calls, apps that can tell you what song you’re listening to in the blink of an eye.  These are all revolutionary pieces of technology that we have gained for ourselves in merely the last decade or so.

This week, however, Google may have just taken the cake on powerful consumer electronics, teasing a pair of glasses that can translate languages nearly in real-time.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai on Wednesday teased a pair of smart glasses capable of translating languages in real time.

Pichai showed a video demo of the glasses during Google’s I/O developer summit. While they’re still just a prototype, Google suggested the glasses can show live language translations to the person wearing them.

So, someone with the augmented reality glasses might be able to understand what another person is saying just by reading captions that are presented through the lenses while the other person speaks.

There was no indication as to whether or not the glasses would ever be available to the public, however.
