Steve Bannons Bewegung

Freitag, 24. Februar 2017 - 09:34

In berichtet die The Fiscal Times über die Ziele der “Bewegung” aus Steve Bannons Sicht:

[...] Bannon described what he calls “economic nationalism” motivating President Donald Trump’s supporters.

Bannon’s said the new political order brings together populists, limited government conservatives, libertarians, and economic nationalists.

“The center core of what we believe is that we’re a nation with an economy. Not an economy just in some global marketplace with open borders but we are a nation with a culture and a reason for being,” he said. “I think that’s what unites us and I think that’s what’s going to unite this movement going forward.” [...]

The Fiscal Times ist ein Beispiel für seriösen Journalismus auf der eher “rechten” Seite des politischen Spektrums in den USA.

After Scott Pruitt became the head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) , Joaquín Guzmán seems to be the right candidate for heading the U. S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). However, the fact that he is Mexican might disqualify him.

Trump, Putin, and the Big Hack

By David Remnick
January 6, 2017

[...] A declassified report concluded that Putin ordered a campaign of covert operations, from defamatory “fake news” articles about Clinton to the hack itself. [...]

[...] Like many nationalist politicians in Europe, Trump has made plain his admiration for Putin, complimenting the Russian leader’s “great control over his country,” while at the same time failing to address the reality that Putin’s regime has instituted wholesale censorship of television, increased repressive measures on ordinary citizens, and unleashed his forces in Ukraine and Syria. (Putin, of course, discounts criticism of his policies as Western hypocrisy and points to everything from the invasion of Iraq, which he opposed, to the eastward expansion of NATO, which he sees as an aggressive act.)

Getting the job done is more important than honesty

[...] integrity, trustworthiness, likability of banks doesn’t really matter to a lot of consumers. I know that you don’t want it to be that way, but that’s the way it is. [...]

Vermutlich ist es so. Schöne Aussichten für Wahlkämpfe.

Cheap Tablets

Samstag, 29. Oktober 2016 - 19:27

Not a good choice: I tried out a cheap tablet netbook PC. It is the Trekstor SurfTab twin 10.1 with MS-Windows 10. After about four months of (not to frequent) usage, the keyboard now sometimes stops working. The issue also is related to the position of the tablet. I think, that the cable between the keyboard and the dock for tablet is a weakpoint due to the bending that occurs when opening and closing the device.

By the way, don’t consider to use such cheap tablets for Linux. You can boot it externally (with some tweaks), but latest if it comes to start graphical mode, you’ll be in trouble. I guess that Microsoft made sure, that no competing operating systems can kick Windows out.

Try in case you search computers (including Netbooks etc.) which support Linux.

I now use that SurfTab with an USB hub (which has its own power supply) and an external keyboard for tasks where I cannot avoid Windows (e.g. for my iPhone). But my main computer is a Acer Aspire R11. Computers from that family work fine with Linux.

2016-10-31: I could’t stop myself and opened the keyboard and its dock for the tablet. Now I lost the warranty, but got some insight. What we see here, doesn’t need any further comment.
