Trump Approves Budget & Declares A National Emergency At The Same Time

Reflections On Trump’s Current Chess Game by Mitch Santell

Congratulations, you have just witnessed something in America that no other President would have the guts to do. What is it? President Donald J. Trump signed the current budget to keep the U.S. Government open while at the same time declaring a National Emergency. In my view? This is an absolutely brilliant strategy. This is the long game. It will still be a wild ride, but at least the amusement park is also known as America will still be around so that the circus can continue. (I love my country, I don’t take what is happening lightly but I do realize, we have to keep our sense of humor).



The White House confirmed Thursday that President Donald Trump will declare a national emergency in an attempt to bypass Congress and get more funding for his Mexico border wall project.

Trump will also sign off on a congressional bill that would authorize a much smaller amount of wall money than the president had been demanding.

“President Trump will sign the government funding bill, and as he has stated before, he will also take other executive action, including a national emergency, to ensure we stop the national security and humanitarian crisis at the border,” spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said.

Funding The Wall Trump 2019


The person I worry about is Nancy Pelosi. Why? Our Madam Speaker here in Washington D.C. appears to have a pretty strong case of dementia.


Nancy Pelosi always seems to be having a conversation with herself out loud sort of like a monologue.

Is Your Trash Listening To You? I.O.T.

A Unique Video from a Truther in Southern California by Mitch Santell

The internet of things is a real thing and while it is fun to be connected, has it gone too far?

Technology is not a neutral tool. There are thousands of engineers working behind the scenes to make their company’s products persuasive and to keep users coming back.

Millennials check their phone about 150 times a day, according to Harris. People are always refreshing their social media accounts to see how many new likes their posts received. It’s a reward system similar to what happens when we pull a slot machine lever. “Even when we’re aware that we’re being manipulated, it doesn’t change the fact that the design is still appealing to us,” Harris said. “It’s based on how our psychology works.”

Never in human history has something been able to constantly project images directly to our eyes, he said, adding that if those images depict our friends having fun without us, it can damage our self-esteem. The AI algorithms behind such apps are designed to prioritize the best pictures posted—which over time can change the physiology of our brain and cause anxiety or depression.

The IOT is back in the news again this week. A judge has ordered Amazon to turn over audio data from an Alexa device related to a murder investigation.

There’s a few interesting things raised by this warrant. The investigators believe that Alexa may have captured audio of the attack itself and uploaded it to Amazon servers, which means that Alexa would have been listening despite the “wake word” not being spoken. This would go against how Amazon tells us the device functions. The investigators may be hoping that Alexa may have incidentally heard something that sounds like the wake word, and recorded audio based off of that. This has happened before.

They are also asking for a list of all devices that connected to the speaker during the time period in question. This means that Amazon is collecting information on everyone that visits your home and when based on their mobile devices that they bring along with them.

These new developments only add to the pile of issues that come with placing internet-connected microphones in your house. There’s the obvious problems like the security of the device, a hacked Alexa can listen to everything you say and do. And deeper problems like being unable to figure out what the speaker is collecting. The device can easily listen and record based on specific marketing or “national security” phrases and wait to upload the information until the next wake word is spoken. You can cram low quality audio in surprisingly small spaces, and because all communication with home servers is encrypted, you can’t know what information is actually being transmitted. A great example is Google Android sending GPS information to Google even while GPS was explicitly disabled.

The Dark Side of Information Overload

Comments On A Sane Mind by Mitch Santell

The ability to Think, to live Zen, and to use discernment is something that the majority of humanity cherishes in my view. Don’t allow the A.I. of social media systems to ruin your real interactions with the real world. This blog post from Joel Latto may help.

I’m an information addict, no doubt, but then again isn’t that the case for the most of us these days? The thing is that unlike (unfortunately) most of us, whenever I find something especially interesting/intriguing online, I dig deep and go for the original source – behind the scenes, so to say, in order to see what really is under the polished end-product, which is fed to the masses.

The Internet has indeed made the creating, consuming, sharing and searching for information easier than ever before, but it has not done so without consequences. The openness of the Internet has lots of debatable downsides, ranging from cyber terrorism to illegalized peer networks, but although many of those regularly gain flashy headlines, I’m writing about an issue that is often ignored: the quality and the worthiness of the data itself.
