Fake news Press And Why?

When the press and their copy cats... Make UNINFORMED claims about  PUBLIC opinion and also make their own beliefs and opinion parts of the news cycle:
All the media bloggers and traditional Claim that a SAMPLE of 848 respondents speak for the entire nation of over 300 million.
When the Editors claim  any sample of less that 2500 is a GENUINE science based poll  they are in fact misleading themselves and the AMERICAN public, which is why the purposely quote percentages and never the actual number of respondents..And they do this all the time.
MEDIA CLAIMED AMERICANS BLAME TRUMP for shut down based on the below sample

The study was conducted for CNN via telephone by SSRS, an independent research company. Interviews were conducted from January 10 to January 11, 2019 among a sample of 848 respondents. The landline total respondents were 303 and there were 545 cell phone respondents. The margin of sampling error for total respondents is +/-4.1 at the 95% confidence level. The design effect is 1.46. More information about SSRS can be obtained by visiting Unless otherwise noted, results beginning with the March 31-April 2, 2006 survey and ending with the April 22-25, 2017 survey are from surveys conducted by ORC International. Results before March 31, 2006 are from surveys conducted by Gallup

When news editors don't know the difference between a SAMPLE opinion VERSUS a Genuine poll they don't deserve a seat in any EDITORIAL BOARD....
This author took part in another pool with over 14500 respondents who replied via their emails over 72 % were in favor of Mr. Trump....

News Article Wall street Journal 2031 AD

While I just got back from there, Must tell you things have not changed much other than the sea level encroachment, parts of North Miami beach is now permanently under 325 MM of sea water. Gone is the long wide white sandy beach and the tourist money it generated. Homestead Fl has lost a good portion of farmland. Other than that, the streetlights roads and traffic remain the same.
I did read something interesting... in the Journal

"Remote Reader Inc has filled documents for IPO, The company supplies under license Mind reading algorithm based helmets to military. The helmets are extremely popular between military spouses and the sex industry. Their latest product allows dog owners to HEAR or READ the thoughts of their pets and vice versa.
Wall street expects the IPO to soar on the opening bell"

Those mind reading helmets are a good thing for crime solving. I can see a suspect taken to the station, sat down and made to wear the mind reading helmet. He/she is shown a picture of a person or item, The computer will be able to down load the images of the last time that person made contact with the item or person..
On the other hand couples will need to be mindful not to wear the devices and read or hear their innermost thoughts out loud to their partners... Some thought are best kept to oneself to keep the peace under the roof... Otherwise it will be this...
"So, That's what you think, Really, Well let me tell you."

Good luck to them..

The Anonymous Trump Resistance, Mattis

Meet the resistance
James Norman Mattis is the 26th and current United States Secretary of Defense and a former United States Marine Corps general. He commanded the 1st Marine Division during the 2003 invasion of Iraq and served as the 11th Commander of United States Central Command during the Presidency of Barack Obama. Wikipedia

Excerpt from James Durso *

The real question for Secretary Mattis is: did he know in April the military couldn’t do the job in six months? If so, why didn’t he admit it then so we could have saved a few billion dollars and  some lives?   
It’s not clear why Mattis volunteered to be Trump’s Secretary of Defense — we’ll have to wait for the book deal and speaking tour to learn that — but he was ill-equipped to serve a President who arrived at the White House uninterested in being beholden to the ways of the national security bureaucracy, "…the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.”
Trump entered office without the retinue of advisors that follows most candidates, and the “Never Trump” foreign policy experts who safely protested his candidacy when he was a long shot against Hillary Clinton deprived the administration of experienced hands. Trump’s work style is non-traditional: At the Trump Organization, he dealt directly with the other bosses, like the Mayor of New York or the Chairman of the New Jersey Casino Control Commission, so why not the head guys of Turkey or Russia?
Trump built hotels and a casino — the men in that business pride themselves on knowing, to the day, years in advance, when the doors will open to paying customers. To them, “conditions based” is a luxury for people who don’t have to pay back investors, and a semi-annual update of those “conditions” is just a muddle, an exercise in goalpost shifting.
Surveying Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria, Trump no doubt feels his executives in charge of the defense, diplomacy, and reconstruction subsidiaries have failed to deliver after two decades and unlimited funding. They’re not ready to go to market, so it’s time to liquidate some assets.
Thus, Mattis was faced with a boss who thinks in terms of schedules and deliverables, and return on investment (ROI), with an added obligation to keep his promises to the voters. Mattis’s instincts should have been at their most acute, but he failed to understand that Trump really was getting the U.S. out of Syria, because as he said of the “moderate” Syrian fighters “we have no idea who these people are.”
Are all flag officers fated for failure when working closely with a President? No, they are not. Many have successfully navigated politics at the highest level.
Fleet Admiral William Leahy served as FDR’s Chief of Staff; General of the Army George C. Marshall served as Secretary of State and Secretary of Defense under President Harry Truman; General Maxwell Taylor served as the Military Representative in the Kennedy White House before becoming Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; and Lieutenant General Brent Scowcroft served as the National Security Advisor under Presidents Gerald Ford and George H. W. Bush. None of these military leaders were yes-men, but they all had one critical skill: they knew how to disagree with the President of the United States and leave him happy they did so.
Mattis spent much of his time telling whoever would listen that he was at the Pentagon to protect it from the Commander-in-Chief, which is pedestrian Washington, D.C. image management, at odds with the selfless, soldier-scholar image he cultivated. Mattis the man is not the Mattis of myth.

He was a professional staff member at the 2005 Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission and the Commission on Wartime Contracting in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Mr. Durso served as a U.S. Navy officer for 20 years and specialized in logistics and security assistance.
