FCC to Steal or Restore Internet Freedom

Picture of FCC Chairman Ajit Pai

Since the 1980’s income growth for all but the top 10% of the U.S. citizenry has stagnated and in many cases declined. The thought was to concentrate money in the hands of the job creators, who would in turn use the additional wealth to create more jobs, this phenomenon would become known as the trickledown effect (TE). TE never came to fruition, in fact it’s safe to say it was and still is a bad experiment in economics with most Americans ending up on the losing end of the experiment.

To see numbers on the lasting effects of TE see the two census links below. Now that it’s widely agreed TE doesn’t work, lawmakers are bent on proving it does. To this end, lawmakers want to “restore internet freedom”. By redefining media markets so that cartels and monopolies can control the countries media by eliminating ownership bans & restrictions. And if that wasn’t enough the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) wants to remove net neutrality, which guarantees all internet users the same speed of access when using the internet.

Paragraph one above shows the intent & outcome of TE, paragraph two shows lawmakers determinism to make TE work. To be fair this FCC proposed rule change may do wonderful things for the U.S. economy and its citizens, to find out lawmakers need the sheep to standby wait and see. In an alleged speech to the media FCC Chairman Pai, said “me & my rich friends want a bigger share of the pie not Pai”, at this point the chairman couldn’t control is laughter (he thought what a good joke, no one was laughing), after several minutes and a glass of water chairman pie said “we’re going to give control of America’s media to a few wealthy individuals, along with that my friends are going to give those same rich people big tax cuts in a few days but it’ll benefit all of you” at that point he laughed so hard he began to fart and couldn’t continue his speech.

Tropics not Humans cause of Global Warming

Picture of Hurricane

We can all relax, NASA has determined the major increases in carbon dioxide is due to tropical regions, they explain heat & drought cycles in poor regions of Indonesia, Africa & South America are to blame. It’s not human activity driving up global warming but the world’s poor and their stupid tropical forests that’s the culprit. If I’ve ever seen a reason to invade or interfere with a nation’s sovereignty this is it, those tropical forests must be dealt with and all of those indigenous people must be kept from warming the world.

NASA’s Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2), NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) along with gathered evidence from the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency’s Greenhouse Gases Observing Satellite (GOSAT) combined data to prove and pin the crime of increasing the earth’s atmospheric CO2 levels on those indigenous people and their tropical forests, this is a call to arms, those people and their government’s must be controlled.

In a separate observation, NASA has determined why ice sheets are collapsing at astonishing rates, it’s not human activity is warm water under the ice. Again, humanity can feel relieved, if we deal with those indigenous people & their rain forests all danger from global warming (GW) will cease. NASA discovered   naturally occurring geothermal sources called mantle plumes are the cause of melting ice sheets. There you have it, rising sea levels, flooded coastal areas, increasing atmospheric CO2 levels, stronger El Nino responses and more are occurring because of the earths poor & naturally occurring events, boy I’m glad NASA is here to explain things.

Government & Industry Perfect Spying on Citizens

Picture of FAA Administrator Michael Huerta

October 2017 the administration launched an initiative to increase public surveillance with unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) or drones. This initiative opts to partner the federal government with private industry, state, local & tribal governments to improve techniques for unconstitutional public spying. Strategically by allocating federal dollars to local jurisdictions the administration is hoping to get (greedy) onboard states & local governments to write laws that further the administrations citizen surveillance goals.

The program intends to improve line of site surveillance & remote sensing techniques. This new total surveillance world will be implemented under the auspices of protecting the public. On the legal side of this increased spying, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) does not regulate how UAS gathers data on people or property, leaving citizens with few rights to oppose the data warehousing of personal facial, behavioral or social information.

By partnering with companies such as SZ DJI Technology a China based company and one of the largest manufacturers of UAS, a citizen could find their entire personal portfolio in any government’s data warehouse without any rights or knowledge of such records. In an alleged board meeting Michael Huerta the FAA Administrator communicated the government & private industry can package & use gathered consumer data as new profitable products, changing consumers into products to be exploited.

Huerta, continued “citizens not wanting personal data exploited will pay a sum to have their records omitted & every year they’ll have to repay again to maintain that privacy. This is a win win for us, we’ll profit off of packaging their data, and we’ll leak some information prompting citizens of leaked data to pay for the removal of such data”. Continuing, “this is what the dumb public deserves, they should be exploited, as they don’t even vote in their own best interest, their dummies and deserve this treatment”.

Congressional Watchdog (GAO) Sounds Liability Bell

Photo of Comptroller of GAO Gene L. Dodaro

Every two years the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) better known as the “congressional watchdog” reviews federal agencies for waste, mismanagement, fraud, systemic abuses & certain problems. Agencies deemed to need restructuring find themselves on a high risk list of departments needing immediate change on the GAO’s High Risk” report to congress. GAO’s recommendations aren’t binding but most agencies adhere to some if not all of GAO’s recommendations over time.

In the latest 2017 assessment GAO reviewed prior year recommendations for various agencies and found that many departments complied with the recommended changes. While adding some agencies are determined not to change. In outlining money spent by departments, GAO noted Federal Environmental Liabilities in some departments continue dramatic climbs from year to year despite recommendations and attempts to slow or bring down the rising costs.

In an alleged speech GAO Comptroller General Gene Dodaro said three new areas of high risk have been identified:

  • Management of Federal Programs that serve Tribes
  • Federal Environmental Liabilities
  • The 2020 Decennial Census

Comptroller Dodaro addressed each during this supposed speech, saying those pesky Indians, many federal agencies like the Bureau of Indian Education and Indian Affairs, the Department of Health and Human Services, Indian Health Service and more are racking up the dollars helping those pesky Indians even though the tribe they’re helping has been dead for a century. During Q&A when asked where has the money gone, Dodaro said it’s the Indians, their taking it, when he leaned over to a colleague saying if I blame them long enough people will start to believe it.

When asked about the exploding Environmental Liabilities Dodaro said if we let the environment go, it’ll save the federal government billions of dollars. Adding I vote for no more environmental spending, however we must spend a few billion environmental dollars on those pesky Indians, just then he leaned over to his friend saying, I think my trick is working, look how all the dummies are  nodding their heads.

Wrapping up his speech Dodaro said the 2020 Decennial Census is a constitutional requirement, regardless of the expense it must be carried out. But I want to make it clear the costs will triple starting with this year because of those pesky Indians. Adding, those four reservations needing to be counted will cost us one trillion to count, when suddenly Dodaro whispered to his friend get ready to be rich as those gullible dopes will now be mad at the dead Indians for wrecking the country.

Electronic Weaponry Advances Guarantees no Peace

Picture of Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis

To a hammer everything looks like a nail, as the U.S. improves its weaponry the inclination for conflict, imperialism, moral interference, perceived threats, superiority beliefs, trampling sovereign nations rights and more will continue to increase. This increasing warfare state, continues to expand as congress is impotent & the Executive Branch sees global events as nails waiting to be hammered.

In this latest technology improvement welcome to the Mobile High Energy Laser (MEHEL) System, which has been greatly improved since the 2015 version which was at 2kW power, here in 2017 it’s now at an astounding 5kW of power. MEHEL will destroy both Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) & ground targets without bullets or sound & can be controlled from a distance making warfare easier.

MEHEL, Anti-UAV Defense System & the Hunter/Killer System are new state of art systems created in part to take out combatant UAS’s and to enhance remote waring capabilities. On the flip side of the UAS coin, the Army Research Laboratory has created a hybrid drone that hovers like a helicopter & while in flight can tilt its wings and begin to fly like a jet mimicking the capabilities of the V-22 Osprey.

With a bigger war hammer, increased defense budget & the war powers act, hardliners, defense contractors & big business are salivating at the endless possibilities for conflict. In fact, in an alleged statement Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis was overheard saying “we need to grow our military ranks because it’s vital we prepare for the upcoming wars we’re going to create. We’ll stir up the masses saying everyone’s a threat and that we must follow the Bush doctrine (preemptive strikes). Our gullible population should fall for this as they’re dumb as bricks”.

Citizenship for Sale & Free Assimilation Grant $

Diplomats-Shaking-Hands

Once again it’s the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) at it again, crunching the constitution by placing some religions over others and by continuing efforts to sell U.S. Citizenship. USCIS just announced $10 million in grants to organizations helping permanent residents get ready for naturalization (citizenship). This award is part of a larger ongoing USCIS Citizenship and Assimilation Grant Program that began in 2009 & since then has awarded over $73 million in grants to help individuals with assimilating into American society.

Thru the 1st three quarters of 2017 over 44 organizations have been financially rewarded by USCIS’s Assimilation Grant program. In reviewing grant winners, several awardees standout namely a handful of Catholic Organizations, a religious Non-Denominational Organization, a handful of Jewish Organizations, a Lutheran & Ministry Organization to name a few. Now somewhere in this list of religious organizations I expected to see the other major religions too, after all they have been buying U.S. Citizenships for eons just like those listed above.

In reviewing locations of grant winning organizations several facts stick out, (1) states with the largest new permanent resident populations include California & New York (2) top metropolitan areas with new permanent residents includes California & New York (3) top ten states having the most naturalization includes California & New York. There’s something else California & New York top the charts at, care to guess, good guess – TAXES. Both states are the kings of taxes and to be honest both states make tons of revenue selling citizenships, rewarding democrats & republicans both politically and personally.

In an alleged private meeting the two governors Andrew Cuomo (NY) & Gerry Brown (CA) could be herd laughing at taxpayers calling them nincompoops and losers. Adding, do what you want we’ll keep getting new voters faster than you can build a coalition to oppose us, we’re in office to stay, keep complaining & we’ll keep replacing you suckers. More laughter then a question between the two, I wonder what it feels like to be an ordinary loser, said one to the other when they both began to laugh, then silence, then in one clear voice the words “they’re the 99% why should we care”, could be heard from a distance, visually it appeared a high five was given, then more laughter could be heard.

U.S. Streamlines Process to sell Citizenship

The U.S. is back at it again, selling U.S. citizenship which begins as temporary and eventually becoming permanent via legal gymnastics with the support of law makers. The hidden agenda behind many temporary employment stints is U.S. citizenship (pay to play). The United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) released its newly updated Form I-765, which combines the streamlining of work authorization and the obtaining of a social security number conveniently in one form. In the past USCIS & the Social Security Administration (SSA) through policy made it clear to temporary hosts the obtaining of social security numbers (SSN) was not needed nor should be pursued (what changed?).

With the new form an applicant can apply for a SSN without ever visiting the social security office. In some cases I guess the government can be efficient, just not where it counts. Starting Oct 2, 2017 USCIS started transmitting form data to the SSA on behalf of applicants who complete form I-765. Applicants receiving an approved Employment Authorization Document (EAD), will receive their new SSN within two weeks, outstanding I didn’t know the SSA could work that fast. In answering the previous question what changed (USCIS & SSA pushing applicants to obtain SSN), I noticed Lee Cissna before his appointment (April 2017) wrote immigration legislation that brought foreign physicians to rural and supposedly underserved areas.

On reflection, Cissna wasn’t a draining of the swamp, his appointment was a filling of the swamp. While touring underserved medical facilities Cissna could allegedly be overheard saying “thank god I won’t be coming to this facility, it’s good enough for these poor sobs, they’re ignorant & dumb, but at least they vote, although I’m appointed I still need these it it’s because they vote, I won’t stop what I’m doing because I want to make America great again, that is no unions & more at will employment”.

Technology Drones/Robots and More War

Picture of Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis

There are drones that can launch from moving objects, track various movements and targets, protect perimeters, orbit targets, monitor threats and more. In fact, there are drones that swarm and work together like bees, who change their contributions according to the need of the swarm. Essentially, when members of the swarm can no longer perform their duties other drones change their tactics to cover the lost drone’s activities.

There are robots that carry pistols, move freely up & down stairs, can move undetected just like a thief in the night and send reconnaissance pictures while being undetected. In stealth mode, these robots or artificial intelligence (AI) bots can choose & neutralize (kill) targets while being controlled from afar. Welcome to ThunderDrone an event sponsored by Special Operations Command (SOCOM), who chaired & led a prototyping, demonstration event to test robotic & drone limitations and capabilities.

This event held in Ybor City, Florida lasted for over a month, it partnered the military with private industry & academia. Other missions of the event were to allow the military to leverage private technologies with military use. The Department of Defense (DOD) Strategic Capabilities Office, along with the Army Rapid Capabilities Office (RCO) and the Science, Technology, Research and Accelerated Capabilities Division of the Army Capabilities Integration Center (ARCIC) saw great promise in the improved drone & robotics technologies.

RCO is tasked with seeking & bringing in new promising technologies that are likely to meet field commander’s needs. Often the technologies at events such as this are predecessors of more advanced future technologies. During this event thru synergy the teams managed to overcome the challenge of resupplying drone power while in flight.  Because of the positive feedback SOCOM is planning two more similar events for 2018 to be at the SOFWERX facility in Florida.

While talking to field commanders and private industry participants Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis could allegedly be herd saying “our peaceful drone & robotics programs should not give anyone pause as our intentions are wholesome, I mean we’re the good guys, everyone should trust us, I don’t understand why they don’t, it’s so confusing”. Just then as Mattis was concluding an employee of a private firm said what about the innocent people killed by our drones, Mattis replied “they’re all mistakes – we can’t be held accountable for errors”, when the employee laughed & said do you think two more scheduled events is enough, Mattis chimed in, “no we’ll schedule more, we need to work on our excuses too”.

CO2 Catastrophe not Deterrent for Government

Picture of Energy Secretary Rick Perry

Secretary of Energy Rick Perry is projected to award 36 million in grant money for promising projects linked to advancing Carbon Capture Technologies. The federal financial assistance will be awarded by the Office of Fossil Energy (FE) which will aid in supporting joint private & federal research for the creation of new technologies that will capture carbon dioxide and inject it into the earth. The proposed process will capture carbon dioxide a byproduct of power plants or some industrial process, compress the captured carbon dioxide, transport it, finally it’ll be injected deep underground in rock formations.

Underground injections (geologic sequestration) will be at a depth of 5,280 feet or one mile. At this depth and only being injected into sandstone, shale, dolomite, basalt, deep coal seams or porous rock, experts are convinced there’s little danger in the concept and eventual underground injection systems that will be deployed throughout the United States. Because the carbon dioxide will be under several layers of rock & will continuously be monitored for seepage the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has dubbed these projects a priority for U.S. leadership in reducing greenhouse gases and in the creation of leading edge carbon reduction technologies.

In an alleged speech Secretary Perry chimed we’re at the forefront of a new age, an age when coal can be used all over the world without harm to the environment. He continued, our sequestration technology will allow us to inject carbon under constituent homes and not risk their health. This is when a reporter asked, isn’t that what was said about fracking, that it was safe and would lead to unlimited sources of natural gas with no environment cost? Secretary Perry and it has, the reporter yelled what about the earthquakes, they’re up fivefold since fracking began. Secretary Perry, well yes it’s up but no one has died from it, so with this new technology no one will die from it either, they’ll just be a little dumber as the seeping carbon dioxide will kill parts of their already dumb brains.

California’s Creepy Education System

Picture of Tom Torlakson CA State Superintendent of Public Instruction

The California Department of Education has begun work on its pilot system the California Science Test (CAST) which supports California’s state testing program dubbed the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). The CAST is still under development, currently field tests are underway for years 2017-2018, after which the program is expected to be fully operational in 2019. CAST will measure student achievement, be administered to all students from grades 5-8 and will also be administered to students attending their last science course of high school.

Administrators find themselves worried some students will miss the pilot assessment due to poor school attendance. California law requires kids 6-18 years of age attend school except in cases when minors have completed school or passed the California High School Proficiency Exam (CHSPE). The School Attendance Review Board (SARBs) helps parents of truant or recalcitrant students find ways of coping and correcting attendance & behavioral problems. SARBs is not intended to be disciplinary, however the Review Boards do have the power to force parents and truant students to court.

In forcing delinquent students to change their behavior the California Department of Education (CADE) has come up with chosen practices & activities designed to encourage students to attend school on a regular basis. CADE recommends holding drawings or special prizes for students showing improved attendance, really…are these some of the tricks they learned in graduate school, reward bad behavior and hope for the best. Another genius recommendation is to personalize relationships between children and various adults, how personal are they talking, home meetings alone, dinners for two, this one’s a bit creepy, as the list of recommended adults to personalize a relationship with said minors is pretty long, maybe someone should rethink this one?

Lastly, if a truant youngster & their parent or guardian can’t be convinced to improve the youths attendance then cases are to be referred to SARB, the district attorney and/or a probation officer mediation program, because jailing troubled youths is preferred. In an alleged staff meeting Tom Torlakson State Superintendent of Public Instruction told his staff our creepy adult dating youth program, scratch that – I mean the adult matched with youth personal program will either get us the results we want or we’ll lock those juvenile undesirables up.
