George Soros Heads to DC to Discuss Election Results

Billionaire philanthropist George Soros and many of his close friends and associates involved with Democratic Party politics will be congregating in DC for a multi-day group meeting meant to answer questions about the results of the election and how liberal groups and donors should proceed now.

The pow wow being held in the Mandarin Oriental is the first official grouping of these powerful individuals in the Democratic Party. Of most importance is how Democrats will react to a Trump presidency on Time.com.

Most observers and attendees are predicting that Dems will come out guns blazing in order to delay and obstruct as much of Trump’s agenda as they can. Democrats are loathe to see many of the achievements they have made over the past 8 years collapse under a Trump presidency.

One of the main Obama programs that will be under attack is the massive expansion of healthcare, aka Obamacare on Biography. Millions of Americans now depend on the government subsidy to afford their healthcare. In addition many Americans fear losing protections against denial for existing conditions. Aside from healthcare there are a number of executive orders and non actions taken by the Obama administration that may be reversed under a Trump regime.

The Democratic Alliance is considered the vanguard of all groups opposing the Trump agenda at http://www.nytimes.com/topic/person/george-soros. While they have only existed as an official organization since 2005 they are one of the heavy hitters in Democratic fundraising today. They have donated nearly half a billion dollars to all kinds of think tanks, non profits and Democratic party races and measures.

George Soros is among the most generous donors in the group- with roughly 25 million dollars in donations under his belt. He is and was considered one of Clinton’s strongest allies and gave generously to her campaign as well. He was vehemently opposed to many in the ultra right wing Republican camp.

Soros typically does not attend all meetings of the Democratic Alliance so him showing up in person is considered a very big deal among party elites and those in the know. Likely he will play a key role in setting the agenda for the next 2 years before elections.

Securus Saved Our Thanksgiving With Video Visitation

Securus Technologies really brought my family together this Thanksgiving. My brother was thrown into federal prison because of marijuana charges a couple of years ago. And it’s totally crazy because marijuana is now becoming legal in many states across the country. We are hoping to get his conviction vacated in light of all of this.

 

That’s all beside the point. The point is that my children miss my brother and so do I. It is always hard around the holidays because we know that he is locked behind bars. He is housed all the way across the state and it makes it very difficult for us to visit him. That’s when Securus saved the day for us.

 

This benevolent company runs this incredibly genius technology. All I do is log into their website, request a video visitation time, and then log back in when it’s time. My brother pops up on the other side with his face filling the screen. You can’t see the prison behind him and it’s almost like he’s just video chatting from his own home.

 

We video chatting with him on a tablet this year. Each of us got to take turns holding the tablet, talking directly to him, and taking him around the house for a tour. It’s about as close is he will get to a family gathering for quite some time, and I am grateful for this technology.

 

I just want to start to spread the word. Securus has been nothing but good to us. They are always interested in whether we are happy with our services or not. And if there are any technical issues, calling into their customer service center is lightning quick. I’ve read bad reviews of other prison telecommunications companies. I’m hoping Securus becomes the country’s leading provider very soon.

Glenn Beck: Really–Where Are Your Manners?

Many of us remember growing up in a family where manners were important. In an age, where individuals, such as our new U.S. President, Donald Trump, wishes to Make America Great Again–it seems relevant to ask individuals who make flip remarks, like Glenn Beck: Where are Your Manners? Especially when it comes to exceptional human-beings such as George Soros.

It seems reasonable to think: Why cannot persons make a living talking about informational material–material that does not take shots at another person’s reputation: Individuals, again, like George Soros.

Glenn Beck, may wish to consider the question: Where Are Your Manners Mr. Beck? One reporter, rightfully, concluded, that Mr. Beck’s campaign against George Soros lacks merit. He depicts Mr. Soros as an evil-doer of some sort. Hitler was very anti-Jewish, as we all know. In controlling the Jewish people, initially, he made outrageous claims about some very prosperous Jewish merchants. It was their activities that would be the undoing of the world population, if those activities were not addressed. What made this offering of slanderous material so pitiful, is that many of the areas where Hitler and the Nazis, suggested, the Jewish people posed the biggest threat, were areas where the Jewish population was very scarce. As everyone knows, Hitler, in and of himself became the threat. However, Hitler’s course of action, from the beginning, was to go about and con world leaders. He promised to agree upon the terms of treaties, and then completely disavowed those promises by doing as he pleased.

Mr. Beck, makes it a point that Mr. George Soros wants world domination. Historically, though, Mr. Soros has been a major force in assuring the elimination of Communism along with Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher. He is very pro-Democracy. He has a constitutional bent, second-to-none.

George Soros is very prosperous and is one of the richest persons the world over. He has made his fortune, fair and square, on the stock market and currency exchanges. Just because he possesses natural talent, in way of becoming rich, does not mean that he is aggressive or dominate. In fact, nothing in his history suggests he has ever been aggressive, in an unfavorable way. Did he practice deception with them? Of course he did.

Mr. Soros is on the favorable list, of many persons inspired by his courage and fortitude. George Soros remains and has been one of the most inspiring entrepreneurs, in the nation’s history. Hopefully, Mr. Beck will learn to mind his manners–however, not many of us are banking on it.

Securus Starts to Highlight Global Tel Link (GTL) – What’s The Deal?

Securus Technologies is a company that found its way to my radar recently with what I was reading about them seeming a little too unclear. There have been various claims made and that means it is time to make some clarifications.

There was a recent allegation that Secures in a pending breach lawsuits that is now in the Texas federal court system under review. Even though the accusation seems damning, the truth is that GTL is now moving on in order to pursue, with the local District Court, to have a rehearing on whether the patent was PTAB – validated. It has never formally been validated.

The GTL’s technology regarding video monitoring, during visitation is a mechanism to provide a safe environment. It ultimately allows corrections officers the ability to supervise an inmate and their visitor. It is a common factor in almost all jails and correctional facilities. The belief is that the company practices are true and fair in every way but it is under ongoing investigation.

The PTAB wholly decided that our innovations are patentable, which is what gave use the right and the privilege to go back to court to protect the company’s intellectual rights and technology. The PTAB has not said that the named innovations were patentable. What they did say was that they would refuse to review the claims at this time.

If the company is found to have any fault in the scenario, then there will be a ruling that will require Securus to discontinue the use of GTL’s patented technologies regarding its video inspection mechanisms that are located within all of the facilities where there is alleged infringement happening.

Ray Fernando’s Professional Work

Ray Fernando attended and graduated from Beloit College and the University College London.

His goal was to bring people to the Chopper Trading team who would remain with the company until retirement. He also only wanted to hire people who would contribute to the pleasant working atmosphere.

His work in this role has been so exemplary that he is highly respected as a great contributor to the work of the U.S. Commodity Trading Futures Commission. He has been a featured panelist and speaker at the commission. He has also assisted the government. For a brief time in 2011 he sat on the International Security Advisory Board, which advised Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In 2015 and 2016 he began a new chapter in his professional life by selling Chopper Trading to DRW Trading Group and starting the Internet-based,Scoutahead.

In addition to serving as the CEO and Chairman of this company, Fernando also assists with a number of philanthropic works. He has various strong hands in assisting the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, PAWS Chicago, the Clinton Foundation, Wounded Warriors, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago.

Being Norka Luque and the Rise to Greatness

Norka Luque is a renowned singer from Venezuela but based in the United States. Rising to become the star she is today was not easy; it has cost her, time, disciple, and hard work. Luque is both a local and international star whose rise to fame came after meeting her producer Emilio Estefan.

Love for Music and Meeting Emilio Estefan

Before meeting up with Emilio, Norka Luque was just a mere singer and member of the Bad Moon Rising band in France. She loved music while growing up and took part in many school competitions. She went to France for higher studies, and it is while here that her music career began taking shape. The band gave her a chance to sing in various places and through that Emilio discovered her talent.

When she returned to the US, she enrolled in music classes and soon began working with Emilio in his Crescent Moon Studios. It took the guidance and help of Emilio for Norka to hit the international music scene. Also, she appreciates her entire production team that works tirelessly to see her achieving her dreams.

Breaking the Ceiling with International Hits

Norka has come a long way in her music career. She continues to make hit after hit through the help of Emilio Estefan. She knows too well that without discipline, consistency, and hard work, she will not break the ceiling. Thankfully, her efforts are paying off with most of her songs topping the Billboard Top Salsa Report. One of her major hits, Milagro is making waves in Venezuela, Puerto Rico, and the United States. The song has fresh sounds and is a blend of different genres including reggae, rock and roll, Mediterranean rhythms, and pop. She was nominated for the Female Pop Artist of the Year in the Nuestro Awards.

Overcoming Depression

Norka was doing well until she hit her all time low when she suffered a personal crisis in 2007 that saw her become overweight. The situation hit her career hard, but luckily, she fought it back. As a celebrity and constant public scrutiny, Norka Luque had to lose weight with the help of her trainer. She has since overcome the issues and now lives under strict diet and exercise regime. She keeps fit by playing tennis.
