Time Warner Cable’s services have been restored after suffering a significant outage early on Wednesday.

“At 4:30 a.m. ET today, during routine network maintenance, an issue with our Internet backbone created disruption with our Internet and On Demand services,” the company explained, in a statement emailed to FoxNews.com. “As of 6 a.m. ET services were largely restored, as updates continue to bring all affected customers back online.”

Time Warner Cable spokesman Scott Pryzwansky told FoxNews.com that the company is still investigating the root cause of the outage, and, at this stage, is unable to provide a definitive number of affected customers

Wonder if this is a justification for the Comcast merger?

TINFOILHAT: Louis Freeh, Curious Car Crash, Media black out?

Curious Car Crashes: Louis Freeh, The Man With The Secrets
By Russ Baker on Aug 28, 2014

*** begin quote ***

Any serious student of history is on alert for “interesting accidents.” Because sometimes they are accidents. Sometimes, they’re not.

We have no opinion at the moment on the one-car-wreck that left former FBI director Louis Freeh badly injured around noon on August 25, other than to note some curious facts: the police were hours late informing the office of the governor of Vermont; Freeh was flown by helicopter to the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Hospital in New Hampshire under armed guard, and has remained under armed guard; the hospital has refused to confirm that he is a patient, even after reports of two surgeries; at least for the first few days no one has answered the phones at his company, Freeh Group International.

*** and ***

Louis Freeh was appointed by George H.W. Bush to the federal bench in 1991. In the first year of Bill Clinton’s presidency, Clinton named Freeh head of the FBI.

Right from the start, the Freeh FBI was drenched in controversy. The “screw-ups” were legion—from the exposure of fraudulent FBI crime lab results to the wrongful blaming of an innocent man for the bombings at the Atlanta Olympics—to the bloody standoff and shootout at Ruby Ridge.

*** and ***

If he dared, Louis Freeh could shed a great deal of light on two decades of frequent security emergencies that have led to the greatest buildup of state power in the history of the United States—and limited Americans’ freedom and privacy as never before. Freeh’s strange crash—like most such incidents (see the bizarre one-car crash that killed national security reporter Michael Hastings) – will almost certainly be explained as a flukish accident.

And Freeh, the lucky survivor, is unlikely to volunteer to spread truth about the crash, or any of the other curious events in which he has been involved as the consummate intelligence-establishment insider.

Sorry, I know I am called a tin foil hat Conspiracy Theorist.

But did you hear about this accident?

And on the internet where everything is reported.

Do you realize how much he may know about the scandals and bodies?

Yet, I have the tin foil hat!

HARDWARE: Bond multiple internet connections

Monday, September 1, 2014

Carrier grade capabilities coming down to high end user price levels.

It’s easily now in the SMB range. Won’t be long before it’s in SOHO.

Bond 4g, 3g, cable / fios, cell phone bandwidth together.

Never dreamed of in the old days.

Wow.

Introducing SimplyBonding from 3Gstore
3Gstore is thrilled to announce our new hosting service that allows you to bond multiple internet connections with minimal equipment and easy setup: SimplyBonding. Unlike failover or load balancing, a bonded connection takes multiple internet connections and COMBINES them. The resulting connection is both faster and more reliable: if you have 3 internet connections that are bonded together and one goes down, your connected devices and apps will never know there was a failure – even apps that maintain persistent connections!

Video: SimplyBonding Unbreakable Internet

What is bonding?

When businesses need a more reliable internet connection, they often turn to Failover or Load Balancing, features familiar to many users and available on a variety of consumer and enterprise grade routers. Failover routers have the ability to switch over to a secondary connection when one internet connection goes down, but you lose the connection during the switchover (and again when the primary connection comes up again and it switches back), and failover doesn’t help with connection speeds. Load Balancing routers split the traffic load amongst multiple internet connections, but they do not aid in reliability or increase speed. Failover and load balancing are useful features, but they are NOT the same as bonding.
A bonded connection takes multiple internet connections and COMBINES them to create a faster and more reliable stream. The concept of bonding (AKA aggregating) internet connections has been around for years, but it has historically been prohibitively expensive and very complicated to deploy and manage. SimplyBonding solves both of those problems!

RANT: Loris Lerner’s IRS emails do still exist…

Sunday, August 31, 2014

Dear Friend & Supporter,

We wanted to make sure you saw the breaking developments in our IRS investigation. In a bombshell admission, forced out by Judicial Watch lawsuits, the Obama Administration has disclosed that backs-ups of Loris Lerner’s IRS emails do still exist…

Please donate right now to keep the heat on Obama’s IRS.

Judicial Watch Statement on Discovery of Backups for “Missing”
Lois Lerner IRS Emails

Judicial Watch announced the following developments in our IRS missing emails investigation. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton stated:

Department of Justice attorneys for the Internal Revenue Service told Judicial Watch on Friday that Lois Lerner’s emails, indeed all government computer records, are backed up by the federal government in case of a government-wide catastrophe. The Obama administration attorneys said that this back-up system would be too onerous to search. The DOJ attorneys also acknowledged that the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) is investigating this back-up system

We obviously disagree that disclosing the emails as required would be onerous, and plan to raise this new development with Judge Sullivan.

This is a jaw-dropping revelation. The Obama administration had been lying to the American people about Lois Lerner’s missing emails. There are no “missing” Lois Lerner emails – nor missing emails of any of the other top IRS or other government officials whose emails seem to be disappearing at increasingly alarming rate. All the focus on missing hard drives has been a diversion. The Obama administration has known all along where the email records could be – but dishonestly withheld this information. You can bet we are going to ask the court for immediate assistance in cutting through this massive obstruction of justice.

Here is the second set of sworn declarations by IRS officials in response to Judge Emmet G. Sullivan’s investigation into the missing emails of Lois Lerner and other IRS officials. The declarations were provided after close of business on Friday, August 22.

Sincerely,

Your Judicial Watch Team

Yes, I am a Judicial Watch contributor.

I don’t understand why there are not people going to jail or being disbarred?

Personally, I am going to review all the testimony in front of Congress and statements to the media. Any lawyer involved will generate a letter to the appropriate Bar Association asking for disbarment proceedings to start. It was done to Clinton and it should be done to another liar!

Argh!

We have to fight for the Republic against the D’s, the R’s, and the Crony Capitalists.

Argh!

GUNS: Kolbe v O’Malley

Court Upholding Ban on Militia-Suitable Firearms Ignores Key Second Amendment Purpose
By David Codrea published on August 15, 2014 in Legal Issues

*** begin quote ***

U.S. District Judge Catherine C. Blake decided Tuesday against plaintiffs in Kolbe v O’Malley, a challenge to Maryland’s Firearm Safety Act, ruling “assault weapons” and their standard-capacity magazines “fall outside Second Amendment protection as dangerous and unusual.”

The Clinton-appointed judge went through double-jointed judicial contortions, revealing politically-motivated hostilities to be dissected by no shortage of legal scholars and pundits. They, and readers following their work, will be examining case details and disconnects, including prejudicial weapon descriptions, agenda-driven “expert” testimony, and myriad questionable assertions presumed by the court to be indisputable facts. Those include allegations of enhanced danger posed by the affected firearms, challenges to the effectiveness of the weapons in home-defense situations, dismissal of the relative distribution of such guns among the population, abuses of the demonized weaponry by criminals, and offensive police training comparison arguments used to undermine equal protection and disparage gun-owner competency. Those can then all be balanced against fraudulent “compelling state interest” and judicial scrutiny-level arguments, as if the security of a free State isn’t the most compelling interest, and as if unalienable rights don’t merit the strictest scrutiny.

What part of “shall not be infringed” doesn’t the judges, politicians, and bureaucrats not understand?

You can not parse a “right”!

The ability to resist the Gooferment and it’s Gestapo is fundamental.

GUNS: Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership

Sellout: JPFO to be handed off to SAF — unless we stop it
Friday, August 22nd, 2014

*** begin quote ***

I was hoping I wouldn’t have to post this, but now that we’re out of alternatives I’ll be as succinct as I can and attempt (no doubt unsuccessfully) to keep my most heated personal judgments to a minimum.

Somebody reminded me this week of that statement from Aaron, the late, great founder of Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership. That was how Aaron contrasted himself and JPFO with Alan Gottlieb and Gottlieb’s SAF/CCRKBA.

Aaron wanted to educate people so that victim disarmament would go away. He would have been thrilled to be able to close JPFO’s doors and say, “We’ve done it.”

On the other hand, he despised Alan Gottlieb and saw him as an opportunist who used scary mailings to turn SAF/CCRKBA into a fundraising factory. He saw Gottlieb as a person who needed and wanted “gun control” because that’s what kept the money and the publicity flowing.

*** end quote ***

It’s always a case of follow the money?

Like “doctors” that really don’t want a “cure”.

Like March of Dimes that moved on to “birth defects” after polio was cured.

And, the United Way and Red Cross with highly paid CEO and bureaucrats!

Why can’t non-profits be happy when they succeed?

It’s all about aligning “motivations”.

GUNS: Nine-year-old girl given full auto Uzi!

Nine-year-old girl kills shooting instructor with an Uzi submachine gun in U.S.

# – # – # – # – #   

This is STUPID in action.

Where where the parents?

Where did this “shooting instructor” get his training?

Has anyone ever fired a full auto? Which ever way it ejects, than it will move in the opposite direction.

The joke in boot was that if an untrained shooter is firing fully auto at you, then go low and charge when it runs out in a few seconds. 

During the “War of Northern Aggression”, Union supply officers wanted to discourage repeating rifles because it would encourage soldiers to waste ammo and exacerbate supply shortages. 

Full auto is for defending again a Banzai charge. Nothing else. The Marines have proven that semi-auto is “good enuf”!

When recently I was a “strange gun shoot” (i.e., 15 different guns from 22 to 50 cal semi-auto fixed mount machine gun), there was an instructor and range safety officer at every firing position as well as 5 range safety officer watching each of three stations and one Chief Range Safey Officer in something like a tennis umpire’s chair watch the entire range and commanding “Hot and Cold”. 

Argh!

What were these fools going to do next? Have the child juggle a few running chainsaws.

Between the open carry fools, who damage the cause, and this one, we don’t need “gun control advocates” to oppose us, we are doing the job for them.

Argh! Argh!
