FCC Investigating 911 Outage That Affected CenturyLink Customers Nationwide

Washington, DC...Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai announced today that the agency has launched an investigation into the nationwide CenturyLink outage, which has affected 911 service for numerous consumers across the country. Chairman Pai issued the following statement regarding the situation:

“When an emergency strikes, it’s critical that Americans are able to use 911 to reach those who can help. The CenturyLink service outage is therefore completely unacceptable, and its breadth and duration are particularly troubling. I’ve directed the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau to immediately launch an investigation into the cause and impact of this outage.

This inquiry will include an examination of the effect that CenturyLink’s outage appears to have had on other providers’ 911 services. I have also spoken with CenturyLink to underscore the urgency of restoring service immediately. We will continue to monitor this situation closely to ensure that consumers’ access to 911 is restored as quickly as possible.”

        People have been calling to seal the Border and Build The Wall since the 70's!! The problem has always been soft people who think it cannot happen to them. The problem has been Politicians who refuse to listen to their Constituents. The problem has been a demographic make up of Politicians who are Globalism Minded and want no Borders. The problem has been Voters allowing the Politicians to operate freely with absolutely no threats of recall or Class Action Law Suits for incompetence and misrepresentation. There are hundreds of more problems that can be named but nothing will change until the Voters decide enough is enough and they decide to vote out every Globalist and Socialist Politician in this State who is dragging everybody into the Globalist Minded Society. Globalism does NOT work. Look at Europe in shambles look at the UK and look at Venezuela!! Those regions are the future of California and this Nation unless you the Voter make a strong stand against the Liberal Progressive Socialist's now in Elected Offices in California and in all States.
        If you agree with all of the above please go out and educate others.
        Change starts with in you. Nothing changes if nothing changes.

    Truth is poison to Liberals
    Posted on: 2018-12-29 06:41:14   By: Anonymous

    Liberal groups push Dem leaders to take harder line in shutdown talks.
    The American Civil Liberties Union and a coalition of left-leaning political, immigration, environmental and labor groups are urging Democratic leaders to further pare down their border fence offer to President Donald Trump once Democrats take over the House and try to reopen the government.
    In fact, the groups want House Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) to deny the president money for his fence altogether rather than give the Department of Homeland Security a year of funding at the same level as last year. The two Democratic leaders have offered Trump roughly $1.3 billion in money for fencing as part of a continuing resolution for DHS, though Trump has publicly asked for as much as $5 billion.

      What are the money gains all of these people will lose out on by Building The Wall?
      How many will be losing kick backs from Illegal Drug Money? How many in Congress are getting any kick backs? How many Corporations are getting kick backs? How many at Federal, State and City levels are getting kick backs??
      Who really is losing money by not funding this Wall? Who are the players pushing extremely hard against the Wall?
      Once you find all of the answers above it all comes together why they do not want this Wall?
      My bet is you will find deep corruption from the Democrats to the Republicans In Name Only to major Corporations to Law Enforcement and yes the United Nations Globalists involved not just in Drugs but in Human Trafficking, Child Trafficking, Child Pornography, The Deep State and into the darkness of Satanism itself who want nothing more that to destroy our nation!
      Think I'm wrong? Follow the money trails backwards!!
      Do the research it is all out there in black and white and in full color layed out all across the internet. They put it directly in your face knowing you won't believe it can be real. That is why they are called "The Deep State".
      Truly we are a Nation In Distress!

**** I know why democrats and liberals have been like this for decades and decades.
The reason is, When a Republican President named Abraham
Lincoln freed all the slaves of the democrats, the democrats have
been mad ever since. Now democrats act self-righteous and only see fault in others.
*************FUN FACTS FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY*************

*****Four US sitting Presidents have been assassinated. All four Presidents
assassinated have been BY DEMOCRATS. The last President
was John F Kennedy. He was assassinated be a Marxist
American, also know in this day and age as a democrat.

There you have it Ladies and Gentlemen, FACTS. Not ''Fake News''
like the immature whining little liberal/democrat on here says, COLD...HARD...FACTS
