China’s WeChat Admits To Secretly Scanning Users’ Photos

Chinese messaging platform WeChat – which President Trump sought to ban from operating in the United States – has admitted to regularly scanning users’ photos even while the app isn’t in use.

WeChat – which saw the Trump-era efforts to ban it halted by Joe Biden’s Commerce Department – confessed to the disturbing and intrusive practice after an exposé by a tech influencer known as “Hacklous”.

Owned by Chinese Communist Party-affiliated Tencent – which counts high-profile Biden appointees and Democratic officials as investors – WeChat “scans photo galleries for durations of up to 1 minute each while running in the background,” according to Hacklous.

“The same influencer later added that Tencent’s QQ messaging app and Taobao, Alibaba Group Holding’s top online shopping marketplace with roughly 900 million MAUs, have also been found to be routinely scanning user photos,” a report added.

Those people are serious.

American liberals aren’t

Woman Caught on Camera With Gas Can Charged in Brooklyn Yeshiva Fire

 

A 39-year-old Brooklyn woman was arrested and charged with reckless endangerment as a hate crime and attempted arson on Sunday. Sharee Jones was captured on surveillance footage last week allegedly pouring gasoline outside the Yeshiva of Flatbush and lighting it on fire. A school security guard quickly put out the fire before it could spread, and no one was injured. But it did leave local residents—several of whom are Holocaust survivors—shaken, according to ABC7 New York

Loudoun County Defends Alleged Rape Cover-up, Attacks Victim’s Father

 

Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) released a statement Wednesday defending the cover-up of an alleged rape while attacking the alleged victim’s father.

Here’s a quick rundown of what happened in Loudoun County, Virginia…

On May 28, the 15-year-old daughter of the father in question, Scott Smith, says she was brutally raped and sodomized in a Stone Bridge High School girls’ bathroom by a boy who gained entry by wearing a skirt and identifying as “gender fluid.”

You are very special people if you cover up sexual assaults and attack the victim’s family.

“Rolling Coal” ?………………………..

I did not know what “Rolling Coal” was.

Apparently it’s what you call a diesel truck blowing big clouds of black exhaust out of the tail pipe.

A Teenager Hit Six Cyclists While Trying To Roll Coal And Was Not Arrested

A 16-year-old pickup driver hit multiple cyclists on Saturday morning near Waller, Texas, a city just west of Houston. The teenager struck six cyclists in all, and two of them were airlifted to local hospitals to treat shoulder, neck and back injuries; one cyclist suffered head trauma, according to KTRK. Police questioned the teenager afterwards, but didn’t arrest or otherwise detain him.

The teenager was driving a Ford F-Series Super Duty pickup, and had been harassing the cyclists earlier by “rolling coal,”or blowing a noxious cloud of black exhaust from your truck tailpipe.

 

 

 

Homemade Apple Cider (and bees)……..

Went out to my brother’s house on a fine (and very warm) October morning to make apple cider.

Below is the cider press that has been in the family since about 1910.

97% of it is original with just a few pieces of wood being replaced or remade.

Note the stainless bowl that is at the front of the press.

This is about 3/4 of the apples that were picked/gathered.  There are a few apple trees on the former homestead that the new owner let us have , there are several trees that are on township property and some trees we’ve knocked on doors to ask if we could have their apples.  Surprising number of people own apple trees that view the fruit as a nuisance, not an asset.

 

I wasn’t really planning on making a post about making cider so I did not document and photograph everything I should have.  The below blue bucket has a stainless honey filter and honey cloth that is used for the first filter.  This is a relatively new process and I have to laugh at how much more difficult it used to be using cheese cloth that was clothes pinned to the bucket.

This is most of what we pressed.  A few people had stopped by and we probably already gave several gallons away by this time.

This was the best year for apples that we have had in 10 years.  It was just my brother and myself working as several others that said they would be here, had other obligations come up.  Turning the hand crank is quite the workout.

This is how many apples we had left that we will save for another weekend.  It takes about 3 of the 5 gallon buckets to make one squeeze.

Going back to the first photo and that stainless bowl, that gets filled with each squeeze, not including the amount of juice that comes out from just grinding the apples.  These were very juicy apples.  Two red buckets to one yellow made a very good mix.  I like the cider tart.

Now, we could have probably finished the cider on this day, but being warm lent to the BEE infestation.

Almost every time we have made cider in the past, it was cold and damp, this time it was 80 plus and the amount of bees was astonishing.  My dad got stung once, my brother twice and I was not stung at all.  Bees were literally getting pored into the containers and we had had enough of the bees.

Range Time …….

Got a chance to stop at the range (indoor) for some quick shooting:

9 rounds of 380 on the right at 7 yards and 9 rounds at 5 yards on the left.

I was using some bulk ammo I bought last year.  Seems to be “ok”.

The paper is 12×18 and the circles are 4″.

 

60 rounds of 22LR from the Beretta M9 22 at 7 yards.

I was at the gunshop all of about 30 minutes !!

bLACK Woman Commits Fake Hate Crime

Color me shocked !!!

Dindunuffin, Georgia Terrorist Threatening to Kill Black People Was Actually a Black Woman Creating a Hoax Crime

Since last December, a Douglasville, Georgia neighborhood has been gripped in fear due to racially charged messages that have anonymously been left in the mailboxes of residents of color, reports Fox News. But now police said they have made an arrest and the alleged culprit is not who the neighbors expected.

Wednesday, the Douglasville Police Department confirmed that they had filed criminal charges against Terresha Lucas. Lucas is a 30-year-old Black woman who they believe threatened people in her community while posing as a Ku Klux Klan member

Shocking !!!
