Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Very interesting article on how the computer mind set affects so many aspects of our lives in many critical but not always best ways. This articles confirms that it is critical we pay attention to the tech worlds influence over our lives and hold all parties accountable. We can't just set back, not learn what is going on, and expect a few senators or regulators to always decide the right thing. We need to make sure we are informed and weigh in on policy and practices that impacts us directly and indirectly.

Trump’s First 100 Days: What has Trump accomplished so far?

Trump’s First 100 Days: What has Trump accomplished so far? | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
"No administration has accomplished more,” he said this week.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Let see.... to me the only real deal the GOP controlled congress and Trump have truly done is to give every citizen/consumer's online privacy over to AT&t, Verizon, Comcast and Charter to do as they want with and make Billions. This from a group that thinks the visitor log at the White House should not be made public, holds behind closed door meetings With the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) to design policy, and at the same time thinks Wiki Leaks is bad. Our privacy now sold out can help them get money from the big ISPs to win elections so they made the deal for themselves to win and us to lose control over our privacy.

US defense officials are calling recent sightings of Russian bombers off the Alaskan coast "nothing out of the ordinary" -- itself an indication that both nations are toeing the line between routine military posturing and escalating provocation.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
I don't think Russia is showing muscle or might by propping up a president long past a time when his own people wanted him out. They are showing their invasive tendency as a way to control where ever they can. They have proved they were either insincere or not competent about Peace making,

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
“What I do is I authorize my military,” Trump told reporters.......if he owns the military let's send him the bill.... I guess that goes for the rest of the country too. Perhaps this is why a liquidation sale of what was once or government is in progress. Other than Trump intends to spend our money to build up "his" military some.

Tuesday, the Trump administration certified to Congress that Iran is in compliance with the agreement and will continue to receive sanction relief. Make no mistake: this is a huge win for the Obama administration and the permanent foreign policy bureaucracy.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
The Swamp was never really described... many think of it as the good old boy net work. Others think of it as sold out, bought out or weak or greedy, corrupted elected officials and those corrupting them with money. This author at Fox defines the swamp as "Foreign policy careerists – the swamp -". This is Interesting because I doubt if anyone voting for Trump or those that never would even dream of that limited idea of the Swamp at all since Trump went out of way to sound like he wasn't going to be into other nations business. Most anyone with a brain knows the so called, and still yet undefined "Swamp ", what ever this vague idea is was there long before Obama showed up and many think Trump has long been in the practice of feeding the swamp monsters with funds to get what he wanted from them for policy.
