Trump advisor says net neutrality hinderes free data services for the poor.
FCC leadership now fully supports zero-rating, the practice in which ISPs exempt some websites and online services from data caps, often in exchange for payment from the websites. Zero-rating is controversial in the US and abroad, with many consumer advocates and regulators saying it violates the net neutrality principle that all online content should be treated equally by network providers.
But some zero-rating proponents believe it can serve a noble purpose—bringing Internet access to poor people who otherwise would not be online. That’s the view of Roslyn Layton, who served on Trump’s FCC transition team, does telecom research at Aalborg University in Denmark, and works as a visiting fellow at the conservative American Enterprise Institute.Read more
As expected, Retired General John Kelly, the incoming White House Chief of Staff had Anthony Scaramucci removed from his newly appointed position as Communications Director. Last week, Scaramucci removed Sean Spicer from his position as Press Secretary and had Reince Priebus resign as Chief of Staff.

While some criminals are murderous thugs, in the USA you’re still innocent until proven guilty. Police are not judge and juror, their only job is to protect and serve the public by enforcing the laws and arresting anyone suspected of breaking the laws. Of course not everyone is arrested for breaking a law, it depends what law was broken and the severity of the crime.
For the president to imply he’s OK with police roughing criminals up is inhumane and un American. He may as well go live in a dictatorial, communist country if that’s what he supports.
Looks like Trump may have to unblock his social media critics soon. A Virginia district Judge recently ruled that politicians can’t block critics on social media, especially if their account is being used for political input and opinions. Since the president represents every US citizen he should not block his critics, according to the suit doing so violates their first amendment rights. However, off topic comments can be removed or blocked/hidden. An upcoming court case against Trump will rule specifically on whether Trump can block his critics, but this Virginia court ruling sets a precedent in favor of the first amendment and Trump’s critics.Read more
