    Congratulations Omni on the open movement ( especially on universal basic income), its a great step toward freedom, on this invisible war. I am an open promoter of the basic income because its the start for human beings to get political freedom, economic security and also to be free to choose a path which seem to fit the most and not to be a robot just for the sake of a payment. It will have some consequence in the beginning because it will be seen as a promoter of laziness but I am sure that will change with time. I think that this forum also need to focus on this matter because its an opportunity to make a radical change within this actual system. Most of people talk about utopia that maybe wont be realised within this lifetime, but Basic Income is something that we all together can archive.

    Lets go than and take this small step but with huge importance for humanity

    Omni, I am continually bowled over by the amount of energy, creativity, thought, effort and intelligence you display. I may not agree with everything you say, but at least you say and do. I love the concept of the open movement.

    Sounds inviting, yet i still hold to “open firewall awareness” as an option to “consensual reality”, in the quest for overcoming the human, self imposed beliefs though the memory-wiped-incarnations, which we now have, along with the Babylonian money trap, which beats down the higher abilities of postulating higher, self empowered realities… Open headed postulating, to be supportive here.

    AT&T paid $$$$$$ to Trump’s attorney, payments stop right after Trump’s FCC pick Ajit Pai repealed net neutrality
    From: Fight for the Future
    "We believe there's hardly anything as important as ensuring that our shared future has freedom of expression and creativity at its core."
    May 8, 2018

    From FFTF's newsletter today:
    Quote My jaw actually dropped when I read this:
    AT&T was just caught paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to President Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, and the payments stop right after his FCC Chairman appointee Ajit Pai repealed net neutrality.
    Are you kidding me?
    This is stunning, transparent corruption. It’s so bad AT&T isn’t even really trying to hide it. Their top lobbyist just resigned over the scandal.
    We can’t waste this chance. Congress still has the power to block the FCC’s repeal, and this latest scandal could tip the scales.
    The Senate will vote on net neutrality THIS WEDNESDAY! We have until then to flood lawmakers with calls and emails demanding they vote for the resolution. Click here to take action!
    https://www.battleforthenet.com/?org...you-kidding-me

    Since the payments were first leaked, AT&T has confirmed it paid Cohen over $600,000 for “consulting.” The contract they signed with him explicitly states he’d help them gain influence “with a focus on the FCC.”
    This type of outright bribery is par for the course among the monopolies trying to kill net neutrality. They’ve funded fake astroturf groups, misleading ads to confuse the public, and lined lawmakers’ pockets with massive campaign contributions.
    But with the coming Senate vote, we have a once in a lifetime chance to win a huge victory against corporate corruption and save net neutrality.
    If you haven’t already, please contact your lawmakers now, and join the Red Alert protests.
    It's clear AT&T tried to buy off the White House, but they're no match for the whole Internet coming together to sway Congress back to our side.
    We’re counting on you!

    Quote AT&T is sketchy as hell and you should join the Red Alert for Net Neutrality starting tomorrow and contact your lawmakers!
    So, its entirely possible that there is a “very reasonable” explanation for this (in that way where giant corporations can have reasonable explanations for why they pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to sitting president’s personal attorneys), but…
    Stormy Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, alleges that AT&T paid $200,000 to Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen through the same shell company he used to pay Stormy Daniels.
    The money came in four installments of $50,000, starting in early 2017 and ending in January 2018, right after Trump’s pick for FCC chair, Ajit Pai, rushed through the repeal of net neutrality, despite overwhelming outcry from across the political spectrum.
    UPDATE: Reuters is now reporting that the amount paid by AT&T to Michael Cohen’s shell company was even greater, likely $600,000 or more.
    UPDATE 2: The Washington Post has obtained internal documents showing that the payments were to push for AT&T’s corporate interests “with focus on the FCC” as well as their massive merger, tax law, etc.
    [IMG]https://cdn-images-1.medium.com/max/1000/1*pL6x5-wYzGWlp_iv7nhXdg.png[/IMG]
    AT&T confirms the payment, and explains it away saying they paid Cohen as a consultant to “gain insight” into the Trump White House on net neutrality and other issues.
    Not conclusive, but frankly, this is sketchy as all hell. The Senate is about to vote on a resolution to block the FCC repeal and restore net neutrality, so contact your lawmakers now, and join the Red Alert protests continuing until the vote on May 16.
    Each breath a gift...
