Guys calm down haha. 

This is what happens when both sides are so divided and fractured. This is domestic terrorism plain and simple

Our leaders need to come together and do some good for our country and help bring people together and it starts with the President and Congressional leaders

Republican Congressmen as far as I can tell are using this as a unifying event for Republicans and Democrats. It's as shame their followers are using it to start attacking the left.

Exactly, this was bound to happen either during this congress or even the last. This country is so freakin divided right now and its not getting any better. Both sides keep saying they are working for the good of the country, well if that is the case put down the rhetoric and help pull this country back together. This also includes the media!

Why are you politicizing the shootings of congressmen, while calling for violence against the left? Man, the FBI is going to be super busy this week.

 

Oh my bad, you were disagreeing with the post. Sorry.

That was what I was getting at, those news sources intentionally took that quote of context to further their political agenda.

That's a cheap shot (no pun intended). You know full well Tim Kaine wasn't talking about violence.

I can't help but think there is sweet irony when those who so boneheadedly defend liberal "gun rights" get some taste of the chaos and violence they cause.

That's far and away different than attempted assassination. I'm not going to argue these generalizations are valid, because they aren't. However, comparing an attempted mass shooting with words just doesn't make sense.

 

From a political perspective, this should demonstrate no "side" is immune to such bad apples. It's great that injury was the most that happened and the only death was the assailant's.

Absolutely agree with you. But in the current climate I have to admit I am surprised it took this long for something to happen.

The left wing assassination fantasies of Kathy Griffin, Snoop Dogg, the Time-Warner 'Julius Caesar' play etc. and those cheering them on all share the blame. They whipped-up the mood and set the stage.

 

Own it, then dial it back!

 

 

Just so we're clear, we should also assume you feel the same way about Trump during the campaign when he was yelling for beating people up and talking about how they would handle things back in the day. Just want to make sure we're all on the same page.

What chaos are they causing? Blame the person who is guilty, not the victims.

 

"But if he didn't have access to guns..." then he would use something else as we've seen demonstrated repeatedly over the last year or so. Cars can be just as, if not more effective than guns.

Trump started talking about kicking people out of events after a DNC black op where  their hired-gun minions attacked Trump supporters then claimed victim-hood status in the aftermath. A swift kick was exactly what they deserved.

 

Since we have the longstanding memes 'Radical conservatives' and 'Radical Islamists', can we finally use the very overdue 'Radical liberalism?'

      Amazon announces renewable energy projects to help meet its targets
      by Paul Hill



      Amazon has announced five new renewable energy projects that will help it source 80% of its energy needs from clean sources, its goal for 2024. The five new projects will be built in China, Australia, and the United States. Aside from its 2024 goal, the firm aims to use 100% renewable energy by 2030 and expects to be net-zero carbon by 2040.

      Commenting on the company’s plan, Kara Hurst, Vice President of Sustainability at Amazon, said:

      Details of the new projects are as follows:

      China: A 100 megawatt (MW) solar project in Shandong. Once finished, it will generate 128,000-megawatt hours (MWh) of clean energy annually. Australia: A 105 MW solar project in New South Wales. This project is expected to generate 250,000 MWh of clean energy per year once complete; Amazon says this is enough to power the equivalent of 40,000 average Australian homes. Ohio, U.S.: Amazon is planning two new projects in this state, a 200 MW solar project and an 80 MW solar project. Virginia, U.S.: A new 130 MW solar project will be the firm’s 12th in Virginia. Combined, the U.S.-based projects will have enough capacity to power the equivalent of 69,000 average U.S. homes each year. The announcement of these projects comes just days after Greenpeace lambasted Google, Amazon, and Microsoft for developing AI tools for oil and gas companies. As a response, Google announced that it wouldn't sign-off on any contracts like those going forward.

      Amazon announces two new renewable energy projects in the U.S. and EU
      by Namerah Saud Fatmi



      Today saw the introduction of two new projects by Amazon, both being renewable energy plants. The Seattle-based tech giant has announced plans to construct an Amazon Wind Farm in the Republic of Ireland and an Amazon Solar Farm in the U.S. state of Virginia. The project in Cork, Ireland, is not the first plant to be established in the region, it happens to be the second Amazon Wind Farm to be built in Ireland. The U.S. Amazon Solar Farm will be the seventh such plant to be constructed in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

      Upon completion, the second Irish Amazon Wind Farm is expected to supply 23.2 megawatts (MW) of renewable capacity and generate 68,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) of eco-friendly energy per year. Meanwhile, the American Amazon Solar Farm is expected to yield 45 megawatts (MW) of renewable capacity and produce 100,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) of green energy every year.

      Kara Hurst, Director of Sustainability at Amazon, stated:

      Both the new renewable projects are expected to launch clean energy production at some point next year, in 2020. The energy generated by the farms will be used to power Amazon Web Services data centres.

      Richard Bruton, Ireland’s Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment, commended Amazon's commitment to renewable projects in the country, stating that he is looking forward to "continuing to work with AWS as we strive to make Ireland a leader in the renewable energy space".

      Virginia Senator Mark R. Warner had similar feelings about the company's move, commenting that the Amazon Solar Farm in Virginia will not only contribute to the environment but also better the economy by creating jobs in rural areas as it has in the past.

      Virginia, U.S., becomes one of the first states to make deepfake revenge porn illegal
      by Paul Hill

      It’s now illegal to share deepfake photos and videos of people without their consent in Virginia after a new amendment to a law came into effect. The law, which was originally introduced in 2014, only covered revenge porn but was updated to include the digital trickery known as deepfakes where someone’s face is digitally attached to another body.

      The law passed through Virginia’s General Assembly in March and was signed into law by the state’s governor, Ralph Northam in the same month. While the state is one of the first places to put such a law into effect, other places are hot on Virginia’s heels to introduce their own anti-deepfake laws.

      In the United States, Representative Yvette Clarke (D-N.Y.) introduced a bill to the House on June 24 which would “defend each and every person from false appearances”; if the law was passed, offenders would face fines, imprisonment, or both. Across the Atlantic in the U.K., the government is looking to introduce laws to tackle revenge porn and as part of this is reviewing digital trends including deepfakes.

      Deepfakes have been around a while now and have the potential to cause major headaches for different groups of people. While the laws above talk about revenge porn, deepfakes can also be employed to put words in other people’s mouths, such as politicians, with that said, some efforts are more convincing than others.

      Amazon granted $23 million in subsidies for its planned Arlington, Virginia HQ
      by Jay Bonggolto



      Amazon's ambition to divide its second headquarters facility between two cities was canceled when it abandoned its plan to build an HQ in Long Island City, New York, due to opposition from local politicians and community groups. That decision left the e-commerce giant with only one target location for its new offices: Arlington, Virginia.

      The company's plan to build its second HQ in Crystal City in Arlington appears to be advancing as intended after the Arlington County Board agreed to subsidize Amazon's project with a total of $23 million in local and state funds. The board's decision was unanimous, but not without having met resistance from opponents consisting of left-leaning and immigrants’ groups who argued that housing prices in the area will soar high and lower-income workers will be displaced as highly paid employees may begin flocking to Arlington.

      Supporters of Amazon's plan, however, touted the project's benefits to the region including economic boost, employment growth, and tax base expansion. It is expected to bring more than 25,000 jobs to Northern Virginia over 12 years, for example. Within that same period, Arlington's revenue is also estimated to reach $162 million and $392.5 million over a 16-year period.

      As part of Amazon's incentive agreement with Arlington, 50% of new revenues that the district may generate beginning in 2021 will be spent on improving the infrastructure around Amazon's new offices over the following decade including sidewalks and parks.

      Amazon likely to bring second HQ to Crystal City, Virginia
      by Paul Hill

      Prospective location for new Amazon headquarters via The Washington Post Amazon is looking more likely to set up its second headquarters in Crystal City, Virginia, according to a new report from The Washington Post. The retail giant is said to have held "advanced discussions” about creating a second headquarters in the city which would bring with it 50,000 new jobs. The firm has held discussions with other cities too, but these were more detailed.

      While Amazon refused to pass comment on the news, CEO Jeff Bezos told an audience in New York:

      The sources suggested that the real estate developer, JBG Smith, has already taken some of its properties off the leasing market in anticipation of the deal being struck. If Amazon does move to the city, it will likely move several hundred employees to 1851 S. Bell Street or 1770 Crystal Drive at first. Potomac Yard, in Alexandria, was another site included in the bid.

      If the deal does go through, Amazon and city officials in the area plan to make an announcement as early as this month after the midterm elections.
