Rachel Bovard: Congress has a role to play in regulating Google

FOX News

A new Google artificial intelligence model appears capable of more accurately spotting breast cancer in mammograms than radiologists; Fox News contributor Dr. Manny Alvarez reacts. The Silicon Valley libertarians at Google are spending a lot of money these days to keep the government out of the company's business. But their sudden aversion to government regulation is a newfound religion for Google: the company has been profiting for years off of a sweetheart deal with the government struck in 1996 -- a government subsidy which Google no longer deserves. Blockbuster reporting from the Wall Street Journal reveals that Google is no longer the neutral search platform they have long led consumers to believe they were. "It is not possible for an individual employee or a group of employees to manipulate our search results," Google CEO Sundar Pichai told Congress.

Hans von Spakovsky: Trump killing of Soleimani and action against Iran legal – Despite Democratic complaints

FOX News

The War Powers Resolution passed Thursday by the House in an effort to restrict President Trump's ability to take military action to defend America against attack from Iran is a meaningless political document designed only to embarrass the president. The nonbinding resolution criticizes the president for not "consulting" with Congress and receiving its "authorization" before ordering the killing of Iranian general and terrorist mastermind Qassem Soleimani. The resolution also orders Trump to stop using military force against Iran until he gets congressional approval. Trump acted fully within his constitutional authority when he ordered the drone strike against Soleimani, a mass murderer responsible for thousands of deaths – including over 600 Americans – who was engaged in planning additional imminent and ongoing deadly attacks. President Trump told Fox News' Laura Ingraham in an exclusive interview Friday that Soleimani was planning attacks on four U.S. embassies.

We have $35 billion of their money right now sitting in an account. And I think they'll agree to pay. I think they'll agree to pay. Earlier this week, Iraq's outgoing prime minister, Adel Abdul-Mahdi, called for American troops to leave the country to avoid further tensions with Iran. Mahdi's comments came the day after Iranian Quds Force Gen. Qassem Soleimani was killed in a U.S. drone strike at Baghdad's airport. A senior Iraqi commander of an Iran-backed militia was also killed. Trump had tweeted last week: "The United States has paid Iraq Billions of Dollars a year, for many years.

Meanwhile, some hosts have characterized Soleimani as an icon of Iran. "I mean, he was a terrorist," Logan said.
