No early morning tweets from Easy D yet?

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

But he's going to bring peace to the Middle East as he has said it wasn't that hard.
I have a feeling he's going to suggest that everyone blame everything on Hillary Clinton so that they all have a common enemy and become fast friends and forget about the last thousand or so years.

Goodbye net neutrality.

The US Federal Communications Commission has voted to overturn rules that force ISPs to treat all data traffic as equal.

Commissioners at the agency voted two-to-one to end a "net neutrality" order enacted in 2015.

Ajit Pai, head of the FCC, said the rules demanding an open internet harmed jobs and discouraged investment.

Many Americans and technology firms filed objections to the FCC's proposal prior to the vote.

"This is the right way to go," said Mr Pai ahead of the vote on Thursday.

In a statement, the FCC said it expected its proposed changes to "substantially benefit consumers and the marketplace". It added that, before the rules were changed in 2015, they helped to preserve a "flourishing free and open internet for almost 20 years".

The vote by the FCC commissioners is the first stage in the process of dismantling the net neutrality regulations.

The agency is now inviting public comment on whether it should indeed dismantle the rules. Americans have until mid-August to share their views with the FCC.

This call for comments is likely to attract a huge number of responses. Prior to the vote, more than 1 million statements supporting net neutrality were filed on the FCC site.

Many people responded to a call from comedian and commentator John Oliver to make their feelings known.

Separately, some protestors also used software bots to repeatedly file statements on the site.

Many fear that once the equal access rules go, ISPs will start blocking and throttling some data while letting other packets travel on "fast lanes" because firms have paid more to reach customers quicker.

US ISPs such as Comcast, Charter Communications and Altice NV have pledged in public statements to keep data flowing freely.

Despite this public pledge Comcast, along with Verizon and AT&T, opposed the original 2015 rule change saying it dented their enthusiasm for improving US broadband.

Facebook, and Google's parent company Alphabet as well as many other net firms have backed the open net rules saying equal access was important for all.

He did.

Now he is working on getting rid of some other groups that people have told him about. First up is Daesh, then he will destroy IS before moving onto the eradication of Islamic State. If he still has any time left, he will then get rid of ISIL.

Apparently Rosenstein told the Senate yesterday that the FBI inquiry is no longer just a counter-intelligence investigation, but now a criminal one.

I have this mental image of Trump walking around in a bath robe randomly telling people they're fired. And going "Wooooo!" down the hallway.

Has the bath robe got frilly cuffs with "Nature Boy" emblazoned on the back?

In a strange coincidence, yes it does.

According to the failing New York Times today, Foreign Embassies and leaders are being asked (told) to compliment Donald Trump on his election win when meeting him and make a short presentation with only a few major issues tailored to his attention span.

Have you ever known anything like it.

Rosenstein's comments to the House and Senate are now available. Based on these he won't be getting a Christmas card from James Comey. More importantly, he might not be the Deputy Attorney General for much longer. His account completely contradicts the White House presentation of his role in the Comey firing.

I think he's more focused on eradicating his own presidency first.

I believe this completely. What a world we live in.
