Another brick in the wall

In order to obtain more money for the current construction of Trump’s Mexican boarder wall, there are going to be large budget cuts in coast guard and airport security. Donald Trump is trying to cut corners on larger money investments that the American Government has been spending money towards in order to fund the wall project. This, and additionally a 54 billion dollar increase to military spending has caused a dramatic shift to the US Government budget.

Donald Trump’s advisers and experts on boarder control have insisted that a physically large wall will do little in the ways of boarder control as of current, and in addition to that be a gigantic waste of money.

Not only is the Coast Guard funding being cut, but the airport security funding as well. Airport security has been being drained of it’s resources to be forwarded into larger projects, mainly the Trump border wall.

The Coast Guard’s budget is $9.1 billion and will  be cut 14 percent to $7.8 billion, while the TSA/FEMA budgets would be reduced about 11 percent each to $4.5 billion and $3.6 billion.

Only time will tell if the budget allocations were a good thing or a bad thing in regards to what the funding will have to cut in order to compensate, and the overall successful actions of the Government’s spending of said money.

Kim Jong Un tensions are uneasy

Recent developments with the United States and North Korea have been on unstable terms. According to the US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, she claimed that the Dictator leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Un, was not a “rational person,” then followed up with “He is not thinking clearly”

According to reports, several live missiles fell into Japan’s waters as part of a testing seminar. If North Korea is gearing up for some military purposes and testing their firepower and range, this will cause major tension in the east and political unrest as to what to do with a potentially unstable leader intent on engaging a war crime.

The United Nations have already approached North Korea with several questions and demands on their part regarding the launching of several missiles. The concerns ranged from ‘what purpose did it serve to launching them’ and extended into ‘a request that the military arsenal be cut back or dismantled in the way it’s being used currently’

In response to the missile crisis potential, the United States has donated South Korea an anti-warhead system designed to shoot down the missiles.

There are no further developments on North Korea standing down or reformatting their military forces at this time.

“A day without women” makes noise across the nation, and the world

The voices of women were heard all throughout the nation today, and the world, as many women gathered in unison to hold mass protests and marches promoting women’s rights.

Planned rallies met and began their march in several locations across globe, as well as here in the humble lil’ ol’ US of A. This event of course corresponded with “International women’s day” in order to punctuate the concentration of the protesting. The women were speaking out against the unfair treatment in the workforce, at home, the roles they were supposed to accept, and of course, the state that American politics are headed in right now.

In order to be considered a participant, women were encouraged to wear red, to strike off of work, and to spend money only on women owned business or small businesses in general.

Locations of large rally gatherings included many large cities such as New York; San Francisco; Philadelphia; Pittsburgh; Washington, D.C.; Ann Arbor, Mich.; St. Petersburg, Fla.; Raleigh, N.C.; ; Portland, Ore. all of which received major turnouts.

A day without women was a successful protest in the attempt to gain attention from the media to hear the cry out of women everywhere.

Wikileaks and trouble streaks

Thanks too notorious cloud service and email infiltrator “wikileaks”, the FBI is forced to reopen and investigate new properties that have been just now exposed by said man. Wikileaks is back into the fray as he has now exposed a new concern that the Government can’t afford to hide any longer: the use of Government approved CIA hacking tools to get information out of the public’s emails, computers, cellphones, and other devices. The FBI is first having to determine whether or not these allegations have any weight to them, but then following that if they are true or not.

Wikileaks is known for his other case opening exposures like his deleted Clinton email recovery of Hillary Clinton’s mass server and the private chats between her campaign manager and his associates that would make references to coded slang used by child prostitution rings.

At this time it is still to early to determine if the content exposed is factual or not, but at the same time it is being combed and regarded as information that still needs to be looked at.

Wire tapped-out

This weekend I am sure we’ve all heard about the President of the United States interesting accusations at the expense of the previous POTUS. According to Trump’s recent social media call outs, he is accusing President Obama of ‘wiretapping the Trump tower in an attempt to find information they can use to hurt the Trump campaign. Considering this information came out at the time it did, it seems highly unlikely. Sources that claim to seek out where the allegations came from apparently source it back to various click-bait style sites designed to spread false news and generate ad revenue through alluring titles and stories.

This of course could have been prevented by ignoring it, but considering Trump’s stand on being an active voice in his own community, he tweeted out several comments on the state of Obama’s underhanded actions.

A tweet like this is just one example of the things Trump mentioned before having to publicly announce that the information he received wasn’t deemed ‘correct’. However, he is not apologizing for the tweet, and his staff has no way of defending him from the backlash he has received from this incorrect claim.

Many comments about the event are along the lines of “why would Obama try to wire tap and expose trump so late into his campaign” and “why would Obama even bother the Government’s resources to set up an overly elaborate scheme”

Only the future will tell if President Donald Trump will continue to use social media to be aggressive, and if fake news sites will still grip the nation.
