New Global Internet Control – Untraceable Hackers Could Harm US Elections; Double the Number of Immigrants Wrongly Given Citizenship. More! Helena’s News Roundup


Learn More about how Obama -without approval of Congress – is attempting to hand over supervision and control of key internet functions to ICANN, – currently the US exercises substantial control to allow freedom .That may change soon – on 9/30. 

Changing who controls ICANN jeopardizes our presidential election

“Changing who controls the ICANN so close to our election will jeopardize the results of how you vote on Nov. 8 unless Congress stops this changeover. When the calendar hits Sept. 30, the US cannot be assured that if any web site is hacked, the responsible party will be held accountable. We cannot be sure if a web site is a valid. We cannot be sure if one country is being favored over another. These are all the things ICANN is responsible for and has worked perfectly since the Internet was created. Why change it now and so close to the election? Why does that matter to you as a voter?.. ICANN has its own Security and Stability Comm, which “engages in ongoing threat assessment and risk analysis of the Internet naming and address allocation services to assess where the principal threats to stability and security lie…”

Actually, the number of immigrants wrongly granted citizenship is double what was reported yesterday – Hot Air

“..a mistake by the DHS led to 858 immigrants who should have been deported being granted citizenship instead. The DHS IG uncovered the mistake which involved people from “countries of concern to nationall security” who did not have digital fingerprints on file.Today, Tapper reports the 858 number was actually less than half the actual number of immigrants granted citizenship. CNN reports the additional accidental citizens were mentioned in a footnote to the IG report:..The footnote reads, “As of Nov 2015, OPS had identified 953 more individuals who had final deportation orders under another identity and had been naturalized….” So it seems to me DHS identified 1,029 people in 2014 and then another 953 by the end of 2015. That’s a total of 1,982 individuals who had become citizens despite final deportation orders “under another identity.”

Conservatives Warn of ‘Bailouts’ for Obamacare Insurers

“The Affordable Care Act calls for the HHS to transfer a portion of insurers’ contributions to the reinsurance program to the US Treasury, as well as to insurance companies.However, conservatives say the dept skirted the law by giving $5 billion to insurers, money they say was supposed to be transferred to the Treasury before the government made reinsurance payments.Walker and Sen. Ben Sasse both introduced bills that would force the Obama administration to deposit $5 billion to the Treasury by 2017 or face steep cuts to the HHS’ dept management fund both this year and next year under a new president.“HHS is illegally diverting millions of dollars from the [reinsurance] program to the insurance companies instead of returning it to the taxpayers,” Walker said. “That’s a huge problem out of the gate, and it’s something we need to focus on.”

Column: Why five former justices oppose Amendment 2

As former Fl Supreme Court justices, we once took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of Florida. Today, we urge all Floridians to protect and defend our Constitution by voting “no” on Amendment 2.The amendment’s sponsors say they fixed the problems that caused Floridians to reject a similar amendment 2 years ago. This amendment is still defective and again should be rejected. Here are five problems we see with Amendment 2:First Amendment 2 is not limited to doctors prescribing marijuana as a compassionate, alternative treatment for debilitating medical conditions. Instead, it makes marijuana available merely on the “recommendation” of any doctor who believes its use “would likely outweigh the potential health risks for a patient..Second, this marijuana will not be sold at our pharmacies but at new “Medical Marijuana Dispensaries” referred to as “pot shops”. State economists estimate there will be over 2,000 such pot shops in Fl — that’s more pot shops in Florida than McDonald’s, 7-Elevens and Starbucks combined. .”

EXCLUSIVE: ‘Clinton, Inc.’ movie will wallop Hillary on 1,000 screens

Another Oct Surprise!! ‘To understand Bill and Hillary, don’t think of a marriage,’ Morris advises. ‘Think of a racketeering organization.’The Clinton duo began as a hippie love story, to be sure, but morphed into a more savage lust for power.By the time she became first lady, Hillary had parlayed her feminist chic into control over the future of the nation’s healthcare system, which she botched by arrogantly trying to steamroll Senate Republicans. Because Bill sensed that he needed to pull the Democratic Party back from the brink of full-scale liberalism, he put his weight behind NAFTA..The filmmakers agree with Trump that NAFTA led to wholesale job losses, and suggest the president didn’t care because America’s working class would never cross the aisle and support an aging, feckless Sen Dole in 1996.”

Obama wary of generals, admirals commanding in war

Wow!”As the four armed forces chiefs testified in the Senate about the national security dangers of mandated budget caps, Sen. Graham asked each officer if he had discussed the readiness crisis with Obama.Their unanimous answers ..underscored a key aspect of the Obama presidency, noted by his own past defense secretaries and a former NATO commander: The president maintains a wary approach in dealing with the four-star generals and admirals who direct his wars…Gates wrote that Obama deeply distrusts senior military leaders and suspects them of conspiring against him. He recalled one meeting in which the president resorted to a clipped “That’s an order” to the top brass.“That order was unnecessary and insulting, proof positive of the depth of the Obama White House distrust of the nation’s military leadership,” a “shocked” Gates wrote.”

Charlie Crist, David Jolly spar right out of the gate in Congressional District 13 debate

“Just minutes in, former Gov. Crist, a Republican-turned-independent now running as a Democrat, was asked about abortion. He said he supported a woman’s right to choose.”Mr. Crist, this is why we can’t believe what you say,” said Rep. Jolly, the Republican incumbent fighting to retain a seat he won in 2014. Jolly then ticked off the anti-abortion positions Crist had taken when he was a Republican politician.That’s how most of the debate went before a packed crowd at the Palladium Theater in St. Petersburg..Jolly went after Crist again and again, repeating over and over that the longtime politician could not be trusted.Crist volleyed back. He asked for civility while portraying himself as a moderate and painting Jolly as a conservative Republican in a district that now leans Democrat.”

Campus “Diversity” = Hatred of the West

Long but well worth the Read! “Peter Thiel, a speaker at the RNC wrote an important book: The Diversity Myth: ‘Multiculturalism’ and the Politics of Intolerance at Stanford (1995). Although the book is specific to Stanford, what takes place there is now common to many campuses in America and is also taught in our nation’s K-12 public schools. Diversity is the twin of multiculturalism, a term that hardly existed 20 years ago. The fact is that multiculturalism is not about learning foreign languages or cultures, it is really about requiring students “to agree with or even applaud views and values that mock the values with which they have been reared.” In plain language, diversity and multiculturalism require students to be indoctrinated in an Anti-Americanism, anti Christian and anti-western point of view.”

Former Democratic Congressional Candidate Says Hillary Stole Nevada

“After releases by Wikileaks and Guccifer, the role in which NV played in stopping Sanders is brought into light. The nature by which Clinton won the Democratic primaries sets a dangerous precedent.On Sep 15, former Congressional candidate Dan Rolle, took to Twitter to explain how, starting in 2012, the NV Democratic Party began changing the state’s voter registration system as a means to rig the caucuses for Clinton. Most state Democratic parties-including NV moved to NGPVAN database system, which Rolle says facilitated the monopolization of voter data in favor of Clinton…“I met with NV Dem Party executive members who told me they were aware of caucus members being bussed in from CA,” Rolle said -noting there were significant discrepancies with the NV Democratic Party’s voter file. “When I pressed on the accuracy in the voter file,I was told ‘it’s garbage’ by an executive board member.”

Articles: Democrats Are Losing Control of Black Americans

Must Read! “Regardless of the outcome of the 2016 election, Trump’s rise will force the Democratic Party to eventually have to address how its elected officials have neglected black Americans, its most loyal constituency.The Democratic Party’s worse nightmare happened when Trump reached out to black Americans at a campaign rally in WI. Trump’s outreach was prefaced by challenging blacks to do an honest assessment of their return on investment after 50 years of voting Democratic. The most damning words that Trump spoke were “what the hell do you have to lose” by voting Trump? The last thing Democrats want blacks to do is to ponder that very question, knowing that the answer is nothing.In the meantime, Democrats and their cohorts in the media have become unhinged at Trump’s outreach to blacks.”

Just 5.7 Percent Of Clinton Foundation Budget Actually Went To Charitable Grants

What a lie about how she is helping the poor!! Deplorable! “Just 5.7% of the Clinton Foundation’s massive 2014 budget actually went to charitable grants, according to the tax-exempt org’s IRS filings.The rest went to salaries and employee benefits, fundraising and “other expenses.”The Clinton Foundation spent a hair under $91.3 million in 2014, the organization’s IRS filings show. But less than $5.2 million of that went to charitable grants.That number pales in comparison to the $34.8 million the foundation spent on salaries, compensation and employee benefits. Another $50.4 million was marked as “other expenses,” while the remaining almost $851K was marked as “professional fundraising expenses.”
St. Pete sewer plant operator seeks whistleblower protections, saying city knew it shouldn’t shutter Albert Whitted plant

“A chief plant operator at the city’s Northeast wastewater treatment facility on Friday sought whistleblower protection, saying the city knew sewage dumps and spills were possible if it shut down the Albert Whitted sewer plant.A 2014 study showed that simulated models showed that a flow of 69 million gallons of sewage would “exceeded the top of the wall” for the Southwest plant, which officials said was able to replace the 12.5 million gallons of capacity from Albert Whitted, which was shut down in 2015, Craven R. Askew contended in an 11-page letter to Mayor Kriseman, City Council members and other senior city staffers.Overall, the city has dumped or spilled more than 190 million gallons since Albert Whitted closed.Askew said Albert Whitted should be reopened until a multi-million dollar expansion of the Southwest plant is completed. That expansion is expected to be complete in summer 2018.”

Exclusive: Hillary Clinton Campaign Systematically Overcharging Poorest Donors

Whoa!! “Clinton’s campaign is stealing from her poorest supporters by purposefully and repeatedly overcharging them after they make a one-time small donation through her official campaign website.The overcharges are occurring so often that the fraud department at one of the biggest banks receives up to 100 phone calls a day from Clinton’s small donors asking for refunds for unauthorized charges to their bankcards made by Clinton’s campaign. One elderly donor, who has been a victim of this fraud scheme, has filed a complaint with her state’s AG which forwarded her case to the FEC.“We get up to a hundred calls a day from Hillary’s low-income supporters complaining about multiple unauthorized charges,”Wells Fargo fraud department told the Observer. The source claims that the Clinton campaign has been pulling this stunt since Spring of this year.”

Trump should give this speech every day to Nov. 8

“Trump made his best case yet for his candidacy. In a speech to the NY Economic Club, he zeroed in on the No. 1 issue affecting Americans: the anemic Obama economy and Hillary’s embrace of the policies that caused it.. when you drill down on what Americans care most about, it’s the economy. And this is where Hillary is possibly at her weakest, at times promising to expand upon the policies that have given the country low growth, massive under-employment and putrid wage growth for the middle class..Trump offered a stirring, Reaganesque vision of America’s economic future where he would cut taxes ($4.4 trillion) and simplify the tax code (from 7 to just 3 brackets).He would also lower our onerous corporate-tax rate to 15%, making the US more competitive globally, and cut job-killing regulations that squeeze corp profits and of cost jobs.”

FEA Appeals Tax Credit Scholarship Lawsuit to Florida Supreme Court

Lawsuits to stop school vouchers continues. The education union will do anything to stop low income kids from receiving vouchers and a better education. How about suing to end tenure and reward teachers with merit pay!! “The FEA alleges Fl’s Tax Credit Scholarship prog violates the state’s constitution and funnels away tax dollars from public schools as a result of the growing program. Corps fund the entire voucher program. Companies then receive a tax break in return for their participation. Since its inception, the voucher program has become one of the largest tax credit scholarship programs in the country. Around 80,000 students currently participate in the Tax Credit Scholarship program, with the average scholarship equaling around $5,800. Over 1,600 schools participate in the Tax Credit Scholarship program statewide.”
