Conor Lamb Endorsed By End Citizens United

The fight to eliminate corruption from American politics continues. In 2010 the Supreme Court made a controversial ruling on the court case Citizens United versus the Federal election commission. As a result of this decision, corporations were ruled as being entitled to the same rights as individuals. This is allowed an influx of donations that are untraceable from individuals and corporations who have deep pockets. This is being referred to as big money in politics. Tiffany Muller at her grassroots political action committee End Citizens United are fighting to change things in the United States of America. Since its inception

End Citizens United has managed to generate nearly $50 million in fully accountable and traceable political contributions that have been submitted to the Federal elections commission for auditing.

Just recently End Citizens United has made an endorsement of potential senatorial candidate Conor Lamb. Conor Lamb is running for a position in the 18th District of Pennsylvania as a Democrat. End Citizens United pledged $250,000 worth of advertising in order to support this candidate. The money will be used in order to purchase air time for television ads as well as digital video ads that are going to inform the public about the mismanagement of funds that has occurred under their current representative Republican Rick Saccone. Rick Saccone first ran for election on a platform that promised not to accept donations from political action committees however immediately upon receiving his political position he spent $435,000 on personal expenses. This was deemed as a frivolous use of taxpayer money as taxpayers have been adding to his expense account since 2010. This is just one example of what has been called the Big money 20. The big money 20 is a group of 20 political power in Congress that are recipients of political contributions from large corporations and billionaires.

End Citizens United has taken a pledge to promote campaign-finance reform and as such is working towards and overturning of Supreme Court decision from 2010. As part of this effort End Citizens United has dedicated itself to the support of Conor Lamb. Tiffany Muller, the current executive director of End Citizens United, has stated that they aim to inform the public that Conor Lamb has a strong record of integrity in comparison to Rick Saccone’s history of exploitation. As of now, Conor Lamb is need of a significant amount of support from outside groups. The Republican candidate is outspending the Democratic candidate by a margin of 17 to 1. The district that Conor Lamb is attempting to overtake is one of the most contested districts in all of America.

Betsy DeVos – Article Recap

Betsy DeVos, the education of secretary for the United States, is a force to be reckoned with. Ms. DeVos is known as a driven, persistent and effective political fighter in her home state of Michigan. Having little experience with politics, Ms. DeVos had a rough entry into Washington. She lacked confidence in her Senate confirmation hearing, where she seemed to be completely uneducated on basic education terms, let alone department policies and growth assessment. She was made a mockery of in late night comedy regarding her weak answers and her suggestion that some school officials should carry guns because of grizzly bears. However, her gallant effort to publicly shake off the humiliation.

 

While she is fairly new to the political game, Ms. DeVos has been an advocate for Charter Schools and School Vouchers into private school for years. She has spent decades acting as a Republican donor, with her born into fortune of billions, to fulfill her vision to improve public education by creating competition and school choice. However, the use of school vouchers allows public funding to be taken from public schooling and funneled into private, and often religious education. That means public funds are given to private groups. Detroit, Michigan has the largest concentration of charter schools because of Ms. DeVos’ efforts. However, these schools are low-performing, and the supply exceeds the demand. Detroit public schools are still among the worst schools in America.

 

There is definitely a bright spotlight on Ms. DeVos currently. With her millions in philanthropy to support a failing cause, her lack of prior experience in the political game, and her weak answers at the start of career in Washington there is much speculation on her success under the Trump administration. However, critics and admirers believe that she will catch up to speed in no time.

Robert Johnson’s Tragedy and How It Can Be Prevented By Securus Technologies

How many articles can you read today that show you some of the threats and dangers that cell phones pose to society? There’s probably not that many, as most of the articles you read are trying to sell cell phones and the companies paying for their bills are phone-production companies. However, one story that would stand out in the search for the threats of cell phones in facilities is the story from NBC 6 South Florida of Robert Johnson, the officer at the Lee Correctional Institution.

 

The Tragedy of Contraband

 

The tragic story about his life-threatening event had been told for over seven years already, but the horror of it still haunts Robert Johnson. It all started when he was working in the facility and confiscated some contraband. That package turned out to be worth about $50,000, and the confiscation undoubtedly caused a lot of distress and even grudge to those who owned it.

 

Weeks later, when he was at home getting ready for work, an intruder went inside his house and tried to assault him. When the intruder was trying to go head for Robert’s wife and kids, he distracted him and got him to attack him instead. This led to the intruder to shoot Robert in the chest several times. The next thing he knew, he was already in the hospital, coping with the damage, and talking to his doctor, who was trying his best to save his life. It was revealed that the shoot to kill order against Robert Johnson was made inside the prison with a cellphone.

 

Wireless Containment Solutions

 

Right now, Robert Johnson is okay, and the man who shot him, a former inmate, was now caught and put to justice. However, Robert Johnson is still dealing with the blow. He goes to the doctor regularly for follow up stitches and to make sure that his scars don’t escalate. He now works for Securus Technologies, and he’s implementing what is now called the Wireless Containment Solutions, which is a service from Securus that, according to Business Wire, disconnects calls that come from or go to the prison cells. I think this is such a useful tool to prevent the tragedy that Robert Johnson experienced. I believe this is a great achievement for Securus. I hope there’s more like in the pipeline.

 

Securus’ Wireless Containment Solutions

 

It’s evident and proven that Securus is right now a leading provider of various criminal justice tools that help investigate and weed out the wrongs of the set-up in prison systems. With its Wireless Containment Solutions, Securus is able to stop about 1.7 million illegal calls made across the eight U.S. Correctional. All of these calls could potentially harm the inmates and the officers, and it’s good to know that Securus has spent millions of dollars on innovating a solution.

 

Clayton Hutson and the role of technology in the live music industry

Clayton Hutson believes live music is much more than just music played on a venture. It must be a sensorial experience. Live music has to give chills and unforgettable moments. The music industry is filled with pioneering technologic advancements so you need to be constantly actualized in order to be successful and not to become obsolete. The live music experience must go beyond just a gigantic screen playing some videos and images behind the performing artist. This is amazing but is plain. It’s not a stimulating experience; it does not capture the essence of what a live show must be. You need to be creative to surprise you audience without relying on simply showing images in a high-definition surface. He says he enjoys and admires artists like P!Ink (who worked with Clay on her I’m Not Dead Tour) and Lady Gaga because they “incorporate a lot of acrobatics, and aerial stunts, into their routines”. The artist’s performance is not just music, it involves a particular form: the way the artist shows his art, how they express the feeling they’re trying to transmit to the spectators with their music. Learn more: http://www.digico.biz/docs/latest_news/EkFlpVAlpkPbdvCaIx.shtml

 

Technology must be a helping hand of this rounded way of perceiving artistic performance. Not the easy shock that’s alike the easy scare of a horror film, but a perdurable image on the minds of the audience. That’s why one of his favorite brands on the industry is DiGiCo. While working on Aaron Lewis on his debut solo tour, he wanted a console small enough to be comfortable to travel with while on tour, and not be at the sake of local production companies who had fairly suboptimal gear. This would allow him to be as faithful as possible to the sounds played by Lewis’ music. To be able to deliver a complete and deep experience to his audience. The DiGiCo SD11 allowed him to make justice to the instruments played by the former Staind frontman, especially his classic Gibson acoustic guitars so they may sound as pristine and clean as they could. This is just a small example of Hutson’s philosophy: technology must be always at the service of the show; not as a quick shock, but as a way to provide a more pure performance and to give the audience a profound and haunting experience.

Strategic Planner Dick Devos

Urban strategist Dick DeVos formed Grand Action, a group of Michigan businessmen who changed the Grand Rapids skyline and the direction of the city. He did not lose his city to urban sprawl. DeVos called Air Trans Airways and convinced them to fly nonstop to Orlando, Florida, from the Grand Rapids’ Gerald R. Ford International Airport. His success led to $45 million in improvements to the Grand Rapid’s airport: new security and check-in procedures, new business centers, and the expansion of local restaurants.

 

Southwest Airlines

 

Southwest bought AirTran Airways a few months later and negotiations began again. Southwest previously refused Dick’s invitation to locate a transportation hub in west Michigan. DeVos managed to keep Southwest Airlines in his hometown airport by demonstrating Air Trans’ success. Southwest expanded the nonstop flights between Grand Rapids and Orlando, Florida, and added nonstop flights to the Baltimore Washington International Airport in Baltimore, Maryland. Southwest Airlines also added nonstop flights from Michigan to Denver, Colorado, and St. Louis, Missouri.

 

Forbes Magazine

 

Forbes Magazine voted Dick and Betsy DeVos 26th among America’s Top Givers in 2016. With inherited family money, Dick and Betsy DeVos spent most of their lives changing institutions and policies. As GOP mega-donors, they’ve influenced state laws and improved the standard of living in Grand Rapids. In 2012, Dick DeVos successfully converted Michigan to a right-to-work state. Michigan employees are now free to choose whether they want to belong to a labor union. Dick and Betsy DeVos donated $12.5 million for the construction of the $103 million DeVos children’s hospital named for Dick’s mother Helen. Michigan families no longer have to drive to the Mayo Clinic for specialized pediatric medical care.

 

West Michigan Aviation Academy

 

With his wife Betsy DeVos, President Donald Trump’s choice for Secretary of the United States Department of Education, Dick DeVos opened an aviation charter school, West Michigan Aviation Academy, in 2010. He donated the school’s first airplane and lent $3 million in the form of no interest loans to the school for flight simulators and other equipment. The aviation charter school encourages minority and low income children to excel in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The nonprofit charter school flourished into a 600-student public school on the grounds of the Gerald R. Ford International Airport. Placement in the West Michigan Aviation Academy is determined by public lottery because applications always exceed the number of openings. The tuition-free public school receives $7,500 per child from the state of Michigan every year, and the DeVos Family Foundation has contributed more than $7 million to the school.

 

FAA Oversight

 

On September 28, 2017, Dick DeVos was appointed to the FAA’s Management Advisory Council by the United States Department of Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao. The oversight board advises senior FAA officials on strategic planning, policy and decision making, spending, and regulatory procedures. His three-year appointment is strictly voluntary, and he’ll remain a pilot and board member of his aviation charter school.

 

Gerald R. Ford International Airport

 

“Dick will be a tremendous asset to the FAA Management Advisory Council. [His] deep roots in aviation as a pilot … [made him] an outstanding partner with our airport. He’ll bring strong leadership skills and industry insight to the FAA” according to Jim Gill, CEO of Ford International Airport.
