Defiant Trump accuses Comey of lying under oath

A defiant President Donald Trump repeatedly attacked ousted FBI Director James Comey on Friday, accusing him of lying under oath and leaking sensitive information about their talks, even as congressional investigators upped the pressure on the White House to back up its claims.

After remaining quiet on Thursday, letting his lawyers and other surrogates rebut Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Trump used a Rose Garden news conference with visiting Romanian President Klaus Iohannis to launch an array of counterclaims.

“No collusion, no obstruction. He’s a leaker,” Trump said. “Yesterday showed no collusion, no obstruction.”

The appearance was vintage Trump, with the president ready to spar with the assembled press, which he described as “killer.”

Trump denied that he pressured Comey to drop an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. The president, however, stopped short of saying Comey lied when the question was posed directly.

Better Buy: Comcast Corporation vs. Charter Communications

As two of the top U.S. cable providers, Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) and Charter Communications (NASDAQ:CHTR) each sit at the intersection of several big-ticket trends shaping the media, cable distribution, and telecom industries.

Their shares have each eviscerated the SP 500‘s impressive performance over the past 12 months.

CMCSA data by YCharts

However, though the recent winner between these two rivals is clear, let’s take a bigger-picture view of Comcast and Charter Communications through a three-part analysis. 

Financial fortitude

The cable distribution industry operates under a unique set of rules, as these four important measures of solvency and liquidity for Comcast and Charter suggest:

Comcast and Charter share more similarities than differences when it comes to their financial structures. More to the point, there isn’t a meaningful difference between the two in terms of their cash and investments, debt, or current ratio.

However, Comcast’s cash flow-producing

Talk of the County – Lake County News-Sun – Chicago Tribune

Don’t take away landlines

I am a senior who needs my landline phone. It is the only way I can keep in touch with my family and friends. I cannot do the modern technology. It is a little too advanced for me already. So please ATT, do not take away my landline phone.

Hey Trumpians

To all of you Trumpians out there: The president has broken every single campaign promise to the American people. Every single one of them is broken. He lies constantly. Just lies. He is going to destroy this country, yet you defend him. Why? Are you all nuts?

Democrats keep trying to find fault with President Trump mainly about Russia and obstruction of justice. How about investigating former Attorney General Loretta Lynch who told former FBI Director James Comey to go easy on Hillary Clinton and not prosecutor

UFC Fight Night 112 Lee Vs. Chiesa: Results, Winners, Bonuses, Highlights, Attendance & Gate

A highly anticipated and bitter main event came to an abrupt and some would say premature ending in the main event of UFC Fight Night 112 in Oklahoma City on Sunday night.

Kevin Lee submits Michael Chiesa

Kevin Lee scored a victory over Michael Chiesa by first-round submission via rear-naked choke. Lee had the hold locked in under Chiesa’s chin, but the latter never tapped and he hadn’t quite lost consciousness. Yet referee Mario Yamasaki called an end to the fight awarding Lee the victory.

Here’s the finish:

Fighters and UFC president immediately came down hard on Yamasaki.

Sprint Wants to Give You Free Unlimited Data for 1 Year if You Switch Over

Sprint is currently running a pretty wild promotion that customers of Verizon (possibly ATT and T-Mobile too) might want to consider, assuming they have decent Sprint coverage in their area. Should you switch over from your carrier to Sprint by June 30, Sprint is willing to give you free unlimited data for the next year. And I’m talking almost 100% free, where your bill will be little to nothing for the next 12 months.

The promotion isn’t being heavily promoted by Sprint, but it’s starting to get play across media and deal outlets because it sure looks like a heck of a deal. Again, free unlimited at Sprint for the next year if you switch over. 

According to the Sprint promotion page for this free unlimited deal, all you need to do is bring over a phone from another carrier that works on Sprint’s network. It’ll need

The Fastest ISPs of 2017 | PCMag.com

Internet connectivity in the US is a hot-button issue in 2017, thanks to the new FCC chairman performing an about-face on issues like net neutrality, subsidizing access for the poor, and permitting internet service providers (ISPs) to do what they please with your data. None of it bodes well.

This comes as the speeds in our tests remain relatively stagnant. Despite cable companies—the major broadband providers in the US—rolling out more and more of the latest high-end modems to customers to increase speeds, and the advent of more and more fiber-to-the-home (or to-the-premises) coverage in select areas, it’s not having much impact, on average. On the world stage, the US isn’t even close to the top 10 countries when it comes to average broadband speed.

Maybe it’s because there is far too much happening on the mergers and acquisitions end of things for domestic ISPs to

AT&T’s new ‘unlimited’ plan sucks

As of this morning, all four major wireless carriers offer data plans described as “unlimited” to all their customers. But while I’m reluctantly willing to describe the Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint plans as unlimited (despite some restrictions), ATT’s plan could better be described as a “22GB data plan but you can’t actually use that data to watch pretty videos or do work on your laptop” plan.

Admittedly, it’s not such a catchy description, but it does have the alternative benefit of being true.

When ATT announced the plan yesterday, it didn’t give us all of the pricing details or restrictions on that unlimited data. But now that the plan is available, we can see specifics, and it suddenly looks like less of a good deal.

Let’s start with the fine print. There’s a lot of it, which you can examine in detail here, but two

Tekken 7 Player Turns Down Tournament’s T-Mobile Phone Prize, Because He Uses AT&T

Tekken 7 player Bronson Tran lived up to his nickname “the mouth of NorCal” this past Wednesday night when he received and rejected the MVP prize at E3’s Twitch Esports Arena invitational. Fans nominated the MVP via Twitter hashtag, and the winner was supposed to get a T-Mobile phone. Except, as Bronson explained while standing on T-Mobile’s stage, he uses ATT and he’d rather not switch his data plan. Instead, Bronson plans to give his prize to a randomly selected Twitter fan.

Bronson did not win the actual tournament, nor did he expect to win. In his player interview he joked about how T-Mobile should offer “participation trophies” for losers, as he expected to be one. Then, he ended up receiving the next best thing: the MVP award, which was more
