Trump’s Many Accomplishments So Far

The mainstream media should be thankful that President Donald Trump is in office. Look at all the attention they are getting. Look at all the stories and theories about him they are writing, tin foil hat conspiracy stories and all.  They can’t seem to get enough of him. They criticize him left and right and people wonder how much can he take and will he resign? Therein lies the rub sort of speak.

The other night on Sean Hannity’s show Monica Crowley stated that Trump really enjoys and gets off on all this criticism because it is a major distraction by the media so he can get things done.

Notice the media never mentions all the things he’s accomplished to make it look like he’s not doing anything, but if you do some research like I have you can see what he has accomplished, more than any other president in the shortest period of time. Trump is a workaholic and only gets four hours of sleep a night.

Here’s a list of all his accomplishments so far.

1) He got conservative judge Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court.

2) The stock market is at an all-time high.

3) Consumer confidence is at an all-time high.

4) He created more than a million jobs by undoing Obama’s regulations.

5) Mortgage applications for new homes is  at a 7 year high.

6) Unemployment rate is at a 16 year low.

7) Signed the promoting women in entrepreneurship act.

8) Gutted 800 Obama era regulations thus freeing up companies to hire again and get the economy moving once again.

9) Ended the war on coal and caused a new mine for coal mining to open that will mine clean coal. He also put the miners back to work.

10) Weakened Dodd-Frank regulations.

11) Promotes buying and hiring American.

12) Investments from major businesses such as Foxconn, Ford ,Toyota, Intel amd others will build here now.

13) Reduced illegal immigration by over 70%.

14) Bids for the border wall are underway.

15) He’s fighting back against sanctuary cities.

16) Changed the rules of engagement against ISIS.

17) Drafted a plan to defeat ISIS.

18) Worked to reduce the cost of the F-35 fighter jets.

19) Imposed a five year lobbying plan.

20) Sanctioned Iran over its’ missile program.

21) Responded to Syria’s use of chemical weapons.

22) Reduced tax reform plan.

23) He’s renegotiating NAFTA.

24) He withdrew from the Trans Pacific Partnership thus keeping jobs here.

25) He pulled us out of the Paris Climate Accords thus saving us millions of dollars every year.

26) Created a task force to reduce crime.

27) The DOJ is targeting dangerous gangs like MS-13.

28) Signed independence and economic growth law.

29) Signed an executive order to protect police officers and target drug cartels.

30) Signed an executive order for religious freedom.

31) His administration is working on sending education back to the states.

32) He’s fixing the dept. of Veterans affairs so now vets can choose their own doctors and be covered. This also protects whistle blowers and allows VA to terminate bad employees..

33) Authorized construction of the Keystone and Dakota pipelines. The Dakota pipeline is up and running without harming the environment.

34) Created commissions on election fraud and opioid addiction.

35) Food stamp use is the lowest level in seven years.

36) Reduced the White House payroll saving taxpayers millions of dollars.

37) He’s donating his salary to various causes.

38) Signed 52 pieces of legislation.

39)  Cut 600 billion from UN peacekeeping mission.

40) Gas prices lowest in more than 12 years.

You won’t hear any of this in the mainstream media. All they know is destroy, distract and damage. That shows that they don’t care about the people they claim to care about because if they did they would work with Trump and make the country better.

Trump accomplished all of this on his own without the help of congress who are useless at this point.  All the media cares about is how they can destroy him today. They have no solutions of their own. They are all deranged ideologues suffering from what is known as Trump derangement syndrome. No wonder the media’s and congress’ ratings are lower than Trump’ s. His may be low, but theirs is lower.

In the areas of economics and national security, Trump is in the midst of healing this country’s true woes. He’s facing nearly insurmountable opposition from every corner of Washington and the media. But he’s started something in motion that will ultimately prevail. He has turned the ship around. That’s moral victory. That’s making America great again. That’s all that really, truly matters.

AT&T begs Supreme Court to destroy the internet

AT&T and several other companies, including Kickstarter, Vimeo, and Etsy, last week petitioned the Supreme Court to overturn Obama-era internet regulatory rules. Here we go again, again.

AT&T’s continuing fight to repeal net-neutrality shares so much in common with the GOP healthcare bill that they may as well start being packaged together. Both of them keep getting shot down, but like any grade-B horror movie-icon from the 1980’s, they keep returning in increasingly more stupid forms as shitty sequels to an already terrible premise.

The head of the FCC, Ajit Pai, appears to be struggling to find a way to justify his existence to the people who matter most: internet service providers (ISPs) with deep pockets and very specific expectations for the politicians they support. He’s named personally as an advocate for AT&T’s latest evil plan to fuck up the internet, in the petition.

While AT&T’s lawyers make it perfectly clear the company believes the Obama White House pressured the nation’s courts into defying previous court rulings that protected AT&T and its ilk from being regulated like a utility. This regulation prevented ISPs from destroying the internet by letting Comcast and AT&T, for example, meter bandwidth based on company preference.

TNW has published numerous articles in defense of net-neutrality, even beseeching our readers to help tell our politicians that we support a free and open internet. The FCC was overrun with millions of comments that said the same. Overwhelmingly the American people and most companies have shown support for net-neutrality, including (wait for it) AT&T.

We covered AT&T’s pointless attempt to stand beside Google, Facebook, and hundreds of other tech companies in the fight for net-neutrality – while it was simultaneously the most vocal voice in trying to have net-neutrality repealed.

The ambiguous nature of the company’s have-it-both-ways stance on net-neutrality has it seeking to repeal the Obama-era rules and replace it with new, better rules; the kind that are drafted by AT&T lawyers. Don’t be fooled; it’s the same bullshit plan with a different angle-of-attack.

AT&T is currently trying to manipulate the conversation by having politician Ajit Pai represent them in lieu of his duty to the American people, a tactic that has failed twice already.

AT&T and its gang of salivating lawyers may never end the ridiculously transparent money-grab of a quest to destroy the free and open internet. But overwhelming support from Silicon Valley and tech journalists seem to indicate that, like most of the American people, those who know what’s at stake won’t ever stop fighting the enemies of net-neutrality.

Tomi Lahren: Las Vegas Victims Were Americans, Not Democrats or Republicans


In her newest Final Thoughts commentary, Tomi Lahren reacts to the Las Vegas massacre

Las Vegas, I have no words to describe how heartbroken I am. Las Vegas was my college town, it was my home for four years. My heart breaks for you, for the city, for what you’re going through.

The deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history with the death toll rising by the hour. It’s times like these and tragedies like this that put it all in perspective. Those innocent people at that concert weren’t Democrats or Republicans, they were Americans. It’s sick and sad some can’t see it that way. Like the now former CBS vice president and senior counsel who took to Facebook to say quote: I’m actually not even sympathetic because country music fans often are Republican gun toters.”

Listen here Hayley Geftman-Gold, it’s those Republican gun-toters who would risk their lives to protect you in any active shooter situation and it’s very sad you’re too ignorant and hateful to see it that way. You make me sick but you’re not the only one.

Last year’s failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wasted zero time before she made this tragedy into an anti-gun political talking point. First of all Hillary, you have no idea what you’re talking about. Second, how dare you. You’re going to blame this senseless shooting on the NRA and law-abiding gun owners, really? For what? To advance your own agenda and political aspirations? Do some soul-searching and learn about firearms before you open your mouth.

Hurricane Irma is a threat for the U.S. coast, but the details on its track are unclear

Hurricane Irma is a beast of a storm, feeding on warm water as it churns west across the Atlantic Ocean. It seems likely to impact the Caribbean next week, but beyond that, this storm’s path is a question that will only be answered confidently with more time. The U.S. coast is certainly at risk, but unfortunately, details beyond that won’t become clear until next week.

There is good news for the storm-weary Texas coast, though: The potential for a new tropical storm has diminished since Thursday. Forecast models are now predicting just a short-lived disturbance in the Bay of Campeche — the southern Gulf of Mexico, west of the Yucatán Peninsula — around the middle of next week. That’s not to say the threat is over, but this is a spark of good news for relief efforts.

That being said, it looks like a cold front could be strong enough to push through Texas and Louisiana next week, which would in all likelihood be a rainmaker. Until then, the weather there should be mainly dry.

Beyond that, Hurricane Irma is the storm to watch. Though U.S. impacts are impossible to predict this early, the storm must be monitored as it moves west. In the short term, at least, it is not a threat to any land within the next five days.

In a span of 12 hours on Thursday, Irma rapidly intensified from a tropical storm to a 115-mph, Category 3 hurricane. In doing so, it became the season’s fourth hurricane and second major — Category 3 or stronger — hurricane. On Friday morning the storm was located 2,100 miles east of the Lesser Antilles and tracking west-northwest at 12 mph. Irma should maintain at least Category 2 intensity for the foreseeable future.

Even though it’s still six days from potentially reaching the Lesser Antilles — the islands on the far eastern border of the Caribbean Sea — locations farther west are watching this storm carefully given its strength. The problem is that nature isn’t precisely predictable this far in advance. The best we can do is watch forecast-model-based probabilities and trends, and caution against paying attention to the details of any single forecast, especially at such long lead times.

Ensemble-based track probabilities out to 10 days from the ECMWF model (top) and GFS model (bottom). Their deterministic runs are the red and green dashed lines, respectively. (B. Tang, UAlbany)

If you have been following these ensemble maps closely over the past few days, one trend that we’ve seen is that the European model is nudging northward at the longer forecast times, and coming into slightly better agreement with the U.S. GFS model, which has maintained that the storm will pass north of the Caribbean (and even the Bahamas) later next week. But on Friday morning, the European model forecast was still far south enough to impact the Antilles in the coming days.

Our message to the Caribbean, Bahamas, Gulf Coast and East Coast is to watch this storm carefully. Day by day we will see better forecasts, and uncertainty should decrease.

Overall, the 2017 hurricane season is running very close to age, which you can see in this chart. Irma will probably nudge this season upward later this weekend.

North Korean… Oh my, we did it too!!

Kim Jung Un had NO military experience whatsoever before Daddy made him a four-star general.
This snot-nosed twerp had never accomplished anything in his life that would even come close to military leadership.
He hadn’t even so much as led a Cub Scout troop, coached a sports team, or commanded a military platoon.
So he is made the “Beloved Leader” Of North Korea.

Terrific!

Oh nuts! I’m sorry…

I just remembered that we did the same thing.

 

We took an arrogant phony community organizer, who had never worn a uniform, never ran so much as an ice-cream stand, and made him Commander-in-Chief.

A guy, who had never had a real job, worked on a budget, or led anything more than an ACORN demonstration, and we made him “Beloved Leader” of the United States – Twice!

So if you think North Koreans are stupid…

I’m sorry I brought this up….never mind!

Build the Wall

Can America solve its illegal immigration problem both justly and humanely? Yes, but it requires first building a border wall. Washington Post columnist and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Charles Krauthammer explains why.

Ann Coulter Made A Fool Of A Trump-Hating Reporter On His Own Show

Ann Coulter, on top of being one of the biggest Trump supporters there are, is one of the smartest political pundits in the business. Her book, Adios America, talks about the scourge of illegal immigration in the country and how it has shaped the political arena and tainted what was once a great country to raise a family and destroyed all hope for the future. She went on Fusion TV to speak with Jorge Ramos, a journalist who is virulently anti-Trump and pro-illegal immigration. Well, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that he was beaten badly by Ann’s wit and knowledge on the subject. This is a must-watch and must-share:

She went on Fusion TV to speak with Jorge Ramos, a journalist who is virulently anti-Trump and pro-illegal immigration. Do you think Ann went too far? We say not far enough! Don’t give ’em an inch!

What is VoIP… really?

Last week, we touched on some of the technological advances that have allowed VoIP telephony to surpass the PSTN in both quality and reliability.

Yet, even though VoIP has been around for two decades, there are still some misconceptions about what it really is. A lot of people think of VoIP as a technology that allows placing phone calls over the internet. Although this is true, such a narrow definition encompasses only a fraction of the functionality of VoIP.

The unfortunate consequence of this misperception is that VoIP is often associated with low quality and best-effort services that offer low cost or free voice calls over the internet. Those familiar with these services have experienced the frequent disconnects, jitter and stuttering on the line characteristic of this type of service. As a result, VoIP has erroneously been associated with an unreliable user experience.

The truth is, VoIP is much more (and better) than just voice over the internet.

Voice over internet protocol, as its name suggests, is a technology that allows for the digitization and packetization of analog voice signals in a format that can be transmitted over an IP network. There are four types of IP networks on which VoIP operates. One is the internet, which is its least functional use case. The more significant ones for private and enterprise users are customer premises networks, SIP trunks, and mobile networks.

Customer premises networks

Enterprises and organizations worldwide have private IP networks in their buildings and branch offices to connect their employees with internal network services. Many universities and public sector organizations maintain geographically extensive private IP networks for interconnecting and providing network services to their locations. All these networks, which are also called LANs (local area networks) and WANs (wide area networks), depending on their geographic reach, comprise infrastructure over which VoIP can operate. Although most of these networks do connect to the public internet, their infrastructure is managed privately and thus they function in a very controlled environment.

Because VoIP shares the same infrastructure as data networks, it can be implemented wherever the organization’s private IP network is available. An IP PBX can be installed at the core of the network and IP phones can be physically located anywhere on the network topography. This makes VoIP telephony more scalable and flexible than a legacy TDN PBX used for analog telephony.

SIP trunks

The other domain in which VoIP operates is on the telecom service provider side (telcos or network operators). This is very different from the best-effort voice services described earlier. A toll-grade VoIP telephony provider provides packetized voice services over a controlled network, not over the public internet. This is in the form of what are called Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) trunks. SIP trunks deliver VoIP in conjunction with Quality of Service (QoS) mechanisms that ensure the voice packets arrive at their destination in a timely and orderly manner, thus maintaining the voice quality that users have come to expect. The counterpart of this network in traditional telephony is the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) or an ISDN PRI voice circuit.

Mobile networks

Mobile telephony networks are a special case of networks that provide both voice and data from end to end. In other words, these networks don’t have a natural demarcation point that separates the customer premises from the operator’s network; the network instead extends to the handset itself.

Mobile operators, too, offer a privately controlled and managed network environment on which VoIP services can be successfully deployed. In the case of mobile, voice is most often carried using the GSM standard, which uses Time Division Multiplexing to digitize voice (similar to an ISDN voice channel), or the CDMA standard, which uses Code Division Multiplexing to digitize voice. However, some mobile telephony operators do instead use VoIP to transmit voice to their subscribers.

Another way that VoIP can be used to transmit voice over a mobile network is via OTT (over the top) applications (think Skype, WhatsApp, etc.) that send voice as data packets. However, because this type of data travels part of the way over the internet, the quality is not as reliable.

CONCLUSION

Much more than merely allowing users to place phone calls over the internet, VoIP is a technology that provides a high-quality, flexible and easily scalable internal telephony infrastructure within the domain of private IP networks, as well as reliable and low-cost routing of voice calls worldwide.

Now We Know: Those ‘Spontaneous’ Anti-Trump Airport Protests Weren’t Spontaneous At All

The mainstream press widely, and falsely, reported that the carefully planned airport protests against President Trump’s executive order on refugees were a spontaneous public reaction. (Ronen Tivony/NurPhoto/Sipa USA/Newscom)

 

There was always something fishy about the outbreak of “spontaneous” protests at airports around the country in the immediate wake of President Trump’s executive order pausing visas and refugees from terror-prone countries.

Not that you’d suspect anything from the way they were covered. Nearly every story published over that weekend stated without equivocation that the protests were an unplanned and visceral reaction to Trump’s executive order. Examples:

“Spontaneous Protests Hit Airports Across America Following Trump’s Executive Order”

“Protest Grows ‘Out of Nowhere’ at Kennedy Airport”

“The senseless cruelty of the executive order has led to spontaneous protests at many of America’s major airports.”

“Word of the spontaneous demonstration was spread across social media.”

But these protests weren’t spontaneous at all. They were, in fact, the result of months of careful planning by hard-core left-wing activist groups.

“News reports and TV broadcasts about the week’s protests described the events as ‘spontaneous protests’ mounted in response to the Trump administration’s travel and immigration executive order,” author Asawin Suebsaeng writes at the liberal leaning Daily Beast. “But to Make the Road New York, and the groups like it across the country, there was nothing ‘spontaneous’ about it.”

Suebsaeng notes that “professional organizers had been waiting and planning for this type of mass, direct action — ready-made to go viral on social media — even since, well Nov. 9.” These professional organizers, he says have been “anticipating and mapping out their battle plans for Trump’s orders on deportations, bans, and detention.”

The executive director of the Arab American Action Network told Suebsaeng that “we had been laying the groundwork for this for a long, long time.”

Since Trump had made clear that he planned — on day one, in fact — to issue a temporary ban on visas and refugees from terror prone countries, all these groups had to do was wait until he made good on that pledge to spring into action.

What’s amazing isn’t the planning or the execution of these protests, but the fact that the media acted as though it was all happening without any planning or coordination at all.

This was important because making the protests appear spontaneous gave them a sense of urgency and legitimacy they otherwise wouldn’t have had.

As the Huffington Post put it: “These powerful images show Americans everywhere rallying against the president’s immigration crackdown.”

Did these news outlets know that the airport protests had been carefully planned? Or that stories they were getting about disarray and families torn apart were being fed to them by activist groups?

After all, the organizations involved in planning the “spontaneous” protests all seemed eager to share their successes with the Daily Beast, including about how they were in “constant contact with … lawyers’ associations, lawmakers, reporters … .”

The fact that the mainstream press either ignorantly fell for — or were active participants in — what amounts to anti-Trump agitprop calls into question much of the rest of the coverage about these events. How much of what was being reported as fact was actually made up or wildly exaggerated by professional activists?

We learned earlier this week, for example, that a widely reported story about a 75-year old mother who died in Iraq after being barred from re-entering the U.S. was a complete lie made up by Iraq-born Mike Hager, who now lives in Michigan.

An in-house ad on The New York Times’ homepage says: “The truth is hard to find.” That’s true. Especially when supposedly trustworthy news outlets are busy spreading falsehoods.
