The US needs a truth in origin and packaging law that requires the disclosure of Chinese involvement in any aspect of a product’s supply chain.
Acting Director of National Intelligence
President Trump just named Ambassador Richard Allen Grenell (age 53), current ambassador to Germany to be the acting DNI. Before we discuss more, let’s review what the DNI does:
The United States Director of National Intelligence (DNI) is the United States cabinet level official required by the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 to:– serve as head of the seventeen-member United States Intelligence Community– direct and oversee the National Intelligence Program– serve as an advisor, upon invitation, to the president of the United States and his executive offices of the National Security Council and the Homeland Security Council about intelligence matters related to national security
On July 30, 2008, President George W. Bush issued Executive Order 13470, amending Executive Order 12333 to strengthen the DNI’s role. Further, by Presidential Policy Directive 19 signed by Barack Obama in October 2012, the DNI was given overall responsibility for Intelligence Community whistleblowing and source protection.
Betelgeuse is a red supergiant and one of the largest stars visible to the naked eye. If it was at the center of our Solar System, its surface would possibly extend as far as Jupiter. But all that seems to be about to change.
