A new mobile game designed to commemorate the historical 2016 US presidential election of Donald J Trump, is now available in the Google Play. Store. The mobile game app called "Thump It Up" was developed by Subhranil Dhar, an animator / app developer in Kolkata, India. The ideas behind the game developed, as Mr Dhar watched the US presidential campaign on internet at the urging of his US partner, who resides in Indiana, the home state of Vice President Elect, Mike Pence. In an "East meets West", "India encounters Indiana" real life story line, Mr Dhar put Indian talent to work to create a humorous American themed game--- a sort of "Donald Thump takes the White House." The game is being produced by the visual media business of Mr Dhar and his partner, called Sand and Sky Productions, which creates mobile applications and animations and can be found at sandandskyproductions.com. The Thump It Up gaming app itself can be found at www.thumpitup.com.
In a letter to members of Congress (bit.ly/2f637lE), A Just Cause asks them to take an active role in advocating for the freeing of six wrongly-convicted Colorado software executives of the IRP Solutions Corporation who are known on the Internet as the IRP6. The men were wrongly-convicted and have spent over 4 years at a federal prison camp in Florence, Colorado. "This was more than destruction of a small, promising software company...This is a human issue that deserves compassion for the plight of children who have unfairly lost their fathers, mothers who have unfairly lost their sons, wives who have unfairly lost their husbands and siblings who have unfairly lost their brothers," Lamont Banks, Executive Director of A Just Cause, said in the letter.
I believe the election of Donald Trump illuminates a true paradigm shift in American politics, a shift away from a politics driven at base by issues to one driven by identity. In the rise of both Bernie Sanders' progressive populism and Donald Trump's nationalist populism, we are increasingly seeing voters choosing a new sort of Internet-era tribalism, banding together in communities so like-minded that they serve as echo chambers for shared hopes and fears alike.
The election of Donald Trump represents the repudiation of 8 years of a failed world-view, failed politics, failed economics and domestic policy and a misguided foreign policy. In a larger sense, they represent in addition, a repudiation of the preceding 8 years of domestic, economic and foreign policy. The Elites - including the elite bureaucrats working within the Beltway surrounding Washington D.C. - know they have lost the battle of promoting their leftist agenda over the will of the people.

New proposals from the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry have suggested that going forward companies in London should still be allowed to sponsor skilled and in many cases much needed migrant workers with job offers for visas. London's economic success is heavily dependent on immigrant labour so it is likely that this is something in which the government will consider.
According to an April 1, 2016 nextgov.com article, President Obama's Chief Information Officer Tony Scott has called the government's reliance on outdated technology a "crisis" that rivals Y2k/Year-2000 computer glitch. The congressional 9/11 commission found that the FBI's antiquated case management system and processes contributed to information sharing failures that led to the 9/11 attacks (govinfo.library.unt.edu/911/report/index.htm). It is no secret, especially in DC that both the Department of Homeland Security and FBI have yet to modernize their case management systems that are used by tens of thousands of federal agents to conduct criminal and terrorism investigations. Since 9/11 two large defense contractors, SAIC & Lockheed Martin, have wasted over a billion dollars of taxpayer money on failed case management projects. SAIC's $458 million Virtual Case File (VCF) was declared "unfit for use" in 2004 and according to FBI Chief Technology Officer Jack Israel's interview with Fierce Government IT in 2012, Lockheed Martin's $800 million-dollar Sentinel project's "demise" occurred when trying to "build an independent electronic case management system."

With just weeks to go before Election Day, the repugnant daytime-TV drama of the political process just gets more and more sickening to many. It seems deceit, dishonesty, and disgusting personal failings are the primary mover in this election, for both candidates, and more and more people I talk to are answering "no one" when I ask who they're going to vote for on Tuesday, November 8th, a crying shame when our country desperately needs us to participate in the processes of governance. With sexual allegations on the one hand and the dump of thousands of humiliating emails on the other, it's as if we Americans are being held hostage to a poorly written TV show, watching the race for the highest office in our land become a race to the bottom.
