BB King saluted Eric Clapton with a toast at the 2007 Crossroads Guitar Festival:
I’ve been around the world, I’ve met kings and queens. But I’ve never met a better man, a more gracious man my friend Eric Clapton. May I live forever. But may you live forever and a day. Because I don’t want to be here if you’re not around.

The 5G Network - Trump

The 5G network 

Trump administration is considering a plan to nationalize the next-generation 5G wireless network to protect against cyber-attacks from China or anyone else. According to sensitive documents obtained by Axios:

"...a PowerPoint deck and a memo - both produced by a senior National Security Council official - which were presented recently to senior officials at other agencies in the Trump administration."




Furthermore, according to Axios,

"Trump national security officials are considering an unprecedented federal takeover of a portion of the nation's mobile network to guard against China..."


The memo goes on to explain why America needs a centralized, nationwide 5G network within three years. Moreover, instead of compete against the major carriers, it suggests "the best option would be for the US government pay for and build the network and then rent it to carriers like AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile."

The memo continued,

"It is necessary and possible to build a secure, high-performance, world-leading 5G network platform by the end of the first term."

And,

"It refers to the nationalization of 5G as the "21st century equivalent of the Eisenhower National Highway System" a reference the 1950s-era federal project to build out the US interstate highway system..."


Note: It is still necessary for engineers to work out 'kinks' to support different case-loads of usage.



As the magnitude of this project sets in, one can see Trump's inherent motivation. There are just a few problems. First of all, it would cost hundreds of billions in taxpayer money to fund.

Fact-checking Donald Trump's fake news awards



Fact-checking Donald Trump's fake news awards

The list of "fake news" winners released by President Donald Trump and the Republican Party on Thursday is mainly a tally of reported mistakes about the president and his administration.
Many of the offending journalists and organizations had already acknowledged and corrected their errors. In some cases, there were disciplinary actions.
It is fitting, however, that the final winner is for general reporting about "Russia collusion." The investigations remain under way, and Trump recently became the first two-time winner of PolitiFact’s Lie of the Year for saying that the whole Russia story was a myth invented by frustrated Democrats.
The awards announcement by the Republican National Committee actually has two parts. The first focuses on what the media got wrong, and the second discusses Trump accomplishments that the GOP says got short shrift from the media.
At PolitiFact, we know a bit about fake news, which we define as intentionally manipulated information (and not, as Trump sees it, critical coverage he does not like or mainstream media reporting errors). We’ve debunked literally hundreds of dodgy ersatz news articles that get passed around on the web.
So here is a fact-checkers’ take on the Fake News Awards.
1. "The New York Times’ Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trump’s historic, landslide victory that the economy would never recover."

Trump shithole countries


WASHINGTON — President Trump on Thursday balked at an immigration deal that would include protections for people from Haiti and African countries, demanding to know at a White House meeting why he should accept immigrants from “shithole countries” rather than people from places like Norway, according to people with direct knowledge of the conversation.

Mr. Trump’s remarks left members of Congress attending the meeting in the Cabinet Room alarmed and mystified. They were there discussing an emerging bipartisan deal to give legal status to immigrants illegally brought to the United States as children, the people said, speaking on condition of anonymity without authorization to discuss the explosive proceedings of the private meeting.
When Mr. Trump heard that Haitians were among those who would benefit, he asked if they could be left out of the plan, according to the people familiar with the conversation, asking, “Why do we want people from Haiti here?”
