In perhaps one of the greatest clap backs of all time, Russia has announced that they will be investigating whether or not the US media “meddled” in their 2016 parliamentary elections.
Leonid Levin, the head of the State Duma Committee on Information and Communication, announced that CNN, Voice of America, and Radio Free Europe will all be looked at as part of their investigation.
“The structures we are discussing are part of a larger American system of pressure on our country,” Levin said at a committee meeting on Tuesday, the Moscow Times reports. “They are using a variety of instruments in respect to both the Russian electoral process and on our country as a whole.”
Levin asserted that the US journalists covering their elections may have had an impact, seemingly mocking the allegations made about Russian media sites since the presidential election.
“The U.S. Senate is considering a bill which grants the U.S. Justice Ministry — including the FBI — additional powers to investigate potential violations of U.S. law by RT America. Similar claims have been leveled at [state-funded English-language news website] Sputnik and other Russian media,” he said.
Levin has now asked for representatives of CNN and Voice of America to appear before the committee.
Earlier this month, New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen set her sights on Sputnik News and RT, comparing Russian media to Nazi propaganda and calling for the companies to be registered as foreign agents.
Shaheen’s shocking statements were part of a speech lobbiying for a bill she proposed in March which would give the Department of Justice additional powers to investigate Russian media’s “funding sources and foreign connections.”
“Our bill will give the Department of Justice new and necessary authority to investigate potential violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act by RT America,” Shaheen said. “This act was passed in the late 1930s in response to concerns about Nazi propaganda being disseminated in the United States without people knowing what it was. Well, this, I think, is absolutely appropriate today for us to take a look at what Russia and other countries may be doing to our news.”
ANOTHER PHONY? Sen. Josh Hawley Does Nothing to Oppose Big Tech Visa Giveaway for Indian Nationals
Hawley’s silence is deafening.
Yesterday, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) was able to pass S. 386 with unanimous consent in the Senate. The legislation is a green card giveaway lobbied for by Big Tech that will flood America with cheap Indian labor and displace native workers.
Lee has been exposed as a lawmaker who is in the back pocket of Silicon Valley monopolists at war with the Bill of Rights and Constitution:

While it is expected that Lee would completely sell America out, the silence from his colleagues who have claimed to vehemently oppose Big Tech has been far more suspicious. The unwillingness of Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) to oppose the measure has caused him to lose credibility among the populist “America First” base.
.@HawleyMO built his entire reputation as the Republican who wants to take on big tech. He couldn't even must up an objection against a bill that gives them a mass amount of cheap labor. https://t.co/nzhHwXtIir

It's been a day and @HawleyMO still hasn't said anything about S. 386. Next time he says he's fighting against Big Tech, don't believe him

Big League Politics reported on how not one GOP senator had the courage to offer opposition to Lee’s big government giveaway to third-world foreigners at the behest of tech corporations who hate free speech:
Utah Senator Mike Lee succeeded in passing legislation in the Senate that would eliminate per-country-caps on recipients of H-1B visas on Wednesday, a policy change that would effectively monopolize the visa system for nationals of large countries such as India.
The Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act has been called the greatest corporate welfare program for Big Tech in recent memory. Lee has persistently sought to pass the corporate giveaway, with previous attempts to eliminate per-country-caps being blocked by Democrat Dick Durbin and Republican Rick Scott. Neither Senator objected to the unanimous passage of the modified S386 legislation on Wednesday afternoon.
Big Tech monopolies such as Apple, Google and Microsoft have fervently lobbied in favor of eliminating per-country caps, seeking to replace their American workforces with de facto indentured workers who accept lower wages and worse working conditions. The pervasive use of the H-1B visa in the American technology industry has displaced countless American workers from their careers.
Lee’s giveaway doesn’t specifically raise annual H-1B visa rates, although an increase in numbers of visa workers would be a likely consequence of its enactment. It’s expected that the program will be dominated by Indian nationals in the event that Lee’s HR1044/S386 is signed into law, providing massive corporations with a considerable labor pool willing to work for less in return for an American visa.
The legislation was most recently updated with a provision blocking Chinese nationals from using the H-1B program. This provision appears to have been instrumental in securing its passage through the Senate.
It appears that Hawley is attempting to co-opt President Trump’s movement without offering much of anything in terms of real substance.
