WebNetInfo.com is America's news and information center for the 21st Century. WebNetInfo.com brings news, information, and commentary to the world.  We realized that national news portals are void of local touch, flavor, information and interests; local portals are void of the magnitude and dynamics of what a national portal can offer.  Therefore, we retooled our web design so that it can be duplicated for any city.  Our national and world news gathering combined with local news, information and views, along with Internet Radio, HoTTalkRadio.com, make a much more desirable and interesting Portal.

Email: info@webnetinfo.com or Call: 504-455-9956

     We are now in the pre launch stage of one of the biggest and most exciting dot com’s since national news portals, Yahoo and Google.

     We have created a template that will allow us to duplicate a news and information portal for every city in the country at nowhere near the expense and time that it took to build webnetinfo.com.

    Our Internet Portals can be used to enhance an individual's present business; can become a very profitable business by itself, or both. They can also be used by religious and community service organizations.

     We seek to sell you one of our Internet Portals. It can have all the same features as webnetinfo.com and jeffersonwebinfo.com and clarksdalewebinfo.com. You own it completely. We have no control over your web site, and you can name it whatever you want.  We have a list of over 200 national affiliate advertisers seeking to advertise on web sites that attract visitors. Discussing the possibilities with one of our consultants would be a wise investment of your time. 

     There is an old saying that if something is too good to be true, it’s not.  However, all great ideas and inventions were originally considered too good to be true; the train, automobile, telephone, airplane, cell phone, computer, Internet, Yahoo and Google. 

     We provide a turnkey operation -- Full training, procedural manuals, forms and complete support. Our pre launch offers include special pricing, incentives, financing and no risk guarantees. All we ask in turn is for you to spread the word of your success, give us a list of successful professionals you know in other cities and give prospective buyers an honest evaluation of your experience owning one of our web portals.

     If we ask you to swap a hundred-dollar bill with a ten, you will either think we lost our minds, or the bill is counterfeit.  A wise person would at least check out the bill’s authenticity. Yes, our idea and offer will sound too good to be true.  Voice of America, Inc. has been around for over three decades; webnetinfo.com has been operational for almost a decade.

   There are only two reasons why an individual would not purchase one of our web portals – they didn’t take the time to read all the information herein, or they didn’t understand the information, and didn’t call to allow us to further explain or clarify the concept.  Any successful business professional can afford one of our web portals.  Contact us after you read the information herein - info@webnetinfo.com or (504) 455-9956.

     In the past, providing information to the public was originally limited to newspapers, then radio and then television.  Now, the World Wide Web allows any individual and/or group to avail news and information to the world.  Providing news and information to the general public is a very serious and important responsibility.  An individual can obtain considerable credibility, authenticity and fame in the community by being the provider and operator of a professional and quality News and Information Portal.     

Take the time to read all the information herein.  We can provide the up-linking, hosting, maintenance and R&D for the site.  We can also provide all the national and world news gathering and publishing for the site. We provide a special section and links for you to provide the local news and information (obituaries, help wanted, swap shop, community calendar, high school scores and political to mention a few) to the site.  You can also provide information about your existing business or profession.  This information is already readily available and easily obtainable.  We show you where to obtain it and how to upload it to your web site.

     The web site is data based driven. It has many functional areas.  Each area has its own built-in editor to upload information, including pictures and graphics.  Each page has its own privacy user code.  The site provides full online user instructions. Anyone with Microsoft Word experience can easily make additions and changes to all parts of the web site.  That's right, you don't need a professional Web Master or "IT" person on staff to manage or operate this web site.

Trump's Approval Rating Continues To Dip
President Donald Trump's approval rating has dropped over the last month, with a majority of American voters now disapproving of his job performance, a new poll has found. In a national survey released Wednesday, Quinnipiac University found that 38% of American voters approve of Trump's job performance, while 55% disapprove. A poll released earlier this month by Quinnipiac taken shortly after Trump's inauguration found that 42% of American voters approve of his job performance, while 51% disapprove. CNN
VOA VIEW: The erroneously results are liberal CNN wishful thinking.

Big Banks Rack Up $6.4 Billion In ATM And Overdraft Fees
If you've ever had to pay $3 (or more) to get your own money out of an ATM machine, you aren't alone. Nobody likes those fees. Except banks. America's three biggest banks -- JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Bank of America (BAC) and Wells Fargo (WFC) -- earned more than $6.4 billion last year from ATM and overdraft fees, according to an analysis by CNNMoney that was verified by S&P Global Market Intelligence. That works out to over $25 in fees annually for every adult American. Despite public outcry, banks show no sign of scaling back on fees. The big three banks collected nearly $300 million more in ATM and overdraft fees in 2016 than they did in 2015. CNN

Leverage: DHS Given 30 Days To Identify 'All Sources' Of Funding To Mexico
What will the wall look like? Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Sec. John Kelly has ordered a report detailing and totaling “all sources” of U.S. taxpayer money given to the government of Mexico over the past five years – and it’s due in 30 days. Kelly demanded the report Wednesday in a DHS memo calling for “Border Wall Construction and Funding,” in an apparent effort to gain leverage with Mexico to garner support for the wall on the southern border: C. Identifying and Quantifying Sources of Aid to Mexico. “The President has directed the heads of all executive departments to identify and quantify all sources of direct and indirect Federal aid or assistance to the Government of Mexico. Accordingly, the Under Secretary for Management shall identify all sources of direct or indirect aid and assistance, excluding intelligence activities, from every departmental component to the Government of Mexico on an annual basis, for the last five fiscal years, and quantify such aid or assistance.

New Immigration Guidance 'Unleashes The Hound Dogs,' Says 1St (Former) Illegal Alien To Serve In Congress
U.S. Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-N.Y.) says he came to the United States illegally as a nine-year-old child, eventually returning to the Dominican Republic with his family to follow proper immigration procedures. He is the first member of Congress to have once been an illegal alien, and he told CNN on Wednesday morning that he objects to the Trump administration's expanded immigration enforcement because it "unleashes the hound dogs," expedites the removal of illegal aliens and fractures families.

Gitmo Likely To Say Open For Business Under Trump
Top White House aides suggest that President Trump intends to keep the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay open, even as one former detainee's suicide attack near Mosul Tuesday underscored the danger of releasing dangerous captives. President Trump pledged to keep the controversial facility known as Gitmo open during his campaign, even as President Obama released waves of detainees in keeping with his promise to close it. Trump's commitment to “load it up” with some “bad dudes,” as he said on the campaign trail, has not wavered, according to one top aide. Fox News

Feds Paid $1 Billion In Social Security Benefits To Individuals Without A SSN
The Social Security Administration paid $1 billion in benefits to individuals who did not have a Social Security Number (SSN), according to a new audit. The agency’s inspector general found errors in the government’s documentation for representative payees, otherwise known as individuals who receive retirement or disability payments on behalf of another person who is incapable of managing the benefits themselves. The audit released Friday found thousands of cases where there was no SSN on file. Over the last decade, the agency paid $1 billion to 22,426 representative payees who "did not have an SSN, and SSA had not followed its policy to retain the paper application." Fox News
VOA VIEW: The joke is on us - seriously.

White House Delays Revamped Immigration Order To Next Week
The White House has pushed back the release of a new executive order to replace its directive suspending travel to the United States by citizens of seven mostly Muslim countries, a White House official said on Wednesday. The order is now expected to be issued "sometime next week," the official said. President Donald Trump said last week he expected to release the new order this week. Trump said the new directive will address legal concerns raised in Washington state, San Francisco and elsewhere about the original orderhttp://www.reuters.com/article/us-college-sat-security-idUSKBN1612AB, which was issued on Jan. 27.

College Board Tightens SAT Exam Security, But Key Risk Remains
The owner of the SAT college-entrance exam, which has been plagued by a raft of cheating incidents overseas, outlined new security measures but stopped short of remedying the test’s biggest vulnerability. The New York-based College Board said the steps include reducing the number of times the test is given outside the United States and increasing the auditing of test centers. But the not-for-profit organization did not say it would end its practice of reusing test forms overseas that were initially given in the United States - the source of many of its security lapses in recent years.

Study Builds Argument That Infections May Cause Autism
A study released Wednesday supports the argument that infections during pregnancy may cause some cases of autism. Women who had active infections with genital herpes early in pregnancy were twice as likely to have a child with autism than women who did not, a team of researchers found. The findings, published in the journal mSphere, add to evidence that inflammation during pregnancy may affect the brain of a developing fetus. "We believe the mother's immune response to HSV-2 (herpes simplex type 2) could be disrupting fetal central nervous system development, raising risk for autism," said Milada Mahic, a researcher at Columbia University who led the research team.

Trump Policies May Lead To Rate Hike ‘Soon’, Fed Minutes Say
The next interest rate increase could be closer than it appears. That's after documents released Wednesday show that Federal Reserve officials spent their meeting three weeks ago consumed with the changes brought on by a new administration in the White House — concluding with a strong indication that another hike could be just around the corner. The Federal Open Market Committee — the central bank's policymaking arm — discussed at length the impact from lower taxes and regulations and higher domestic spending under President Donald Trump, according to minutes of the Jan. 31-Feb. 1 session. The meeting was the first since Trump took office, following his stunning November election upset. The president's name was never mentioned in the minutes, but the broad brushes of his agenda show up often. MSNBC

Trump Vows To Cut Waste In First Budget
President Trump vowed Wednesday that there will be “no more wasted money” in the federal budget as he prepares his first spending plan to be submitted to Congress. “We must do a lot more with less, and look for every last dollar of savings,” Mr. Trump told reporters in a White House meeting. The president is holding sessions with staff Wednesday on his proposed budget, which is still a work in progress. An outline of the budget could be released as early as mid-March. After a delay, the Senate last week confirmed Mick Mulvaney as director of the White House Office of Management and Budget. Washington Times

Tillerson Alone At The Top As Key State Department Jobs Remain Unfilled
Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson heads to Mexico City for a delicate diplomatic mission Wednesday, but he is going at a moment of tremendous uncertainty back at the office, where more than dozen key assistant secretary positions are still without even a proposed nominee from the White House. Mr. Tillerson will travel with Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly and acting Assistant Secretary for Western Hemisphere Affairs Francisco Palmieri. But he will otherwise have little backup because, a month into the Trump administration, there is still no deputy secretary of state, no new ambassador to Mexico and no clear sign of when those and other diplomatic positions will be filled.

Lawsuit Accuses Drug Makers Of Conspiring To Hike Insulin Prices
More than 29 million Americans live with diabetes, and for some six million of them, insulin is a life or death medication. Between 2002 and 2013, the price of insulin more than tripled, to more than $700 per patient. A federal lawsuit accuses the three insulin manufacturers of conspiring to raise their prices. The drug makers deny the allegations. Those high prices, combined with rising insurance deductibles, mean many people who rely on insulin are feeling sticker shock. Even doctors say without a way to pay, some patients are left facing impossible choices, reports CBS News correspondent Anna Werner. CBS

Trump's Mar-A-Lago Trips Cost Taxpayers About $10M So Far
Budget watchdogs are criticizing the cost of President Trump’s visits to Mar-a-Lago, his private club in Palm Beach, Florida. Mr. Trump has been at his so-called “Winter White House” the past three weekends. That’s 11 of his first 33 days in office. The travel has an estimated price tag of $10 million. Between Secret Service and police surrounding the estate, and the U.S. Coast Guard in the surrounding waters, Mar-a-Lago is a fortress when the president is here. The White House won’t disclose the exact cost of Mr. Trump’s visits, but the $10 million estimate is based on figures from a similar trip by President Obama in 2013. CBS
VOA VIEW: No mention on Obama who wasted a small fortune - Trump worked on his trips.

No, Former President Obama Isn't Planning A Coup Against President Trump
A fake news story making the rounds on Facebook claims in the headline that Congress is concerned that former President Barack Obama might make a "treasonous coup attempt" against President Trump -- and that they're taking steps to stop him. It's not true. Though the headline screams "BREAKING: Congress Moves to STOP Obama’s Treasonous Coup Attempt Against Trump," only parts of the story are based on facts. It's done by seeding the story with quotes that are true, but are twisted out of context. ABC


New EPA Head Scott Pruitt's Emails Indicate Close Ties To Oil And Gas Producers
More than 7,000 pages of emails from Environmental Protection Agency head Scott Pruitt indicate a cozy relationship with oil and gas producers, fossil fuel companies, electric companies, as well as political groups tied to the Koch Brothers during his time as Oklahoma Attorney General. The emails -- made public Wednesday by an Oklahoma judge in response to a lawsuit by liberal watchdog group the Center for Media and Democracy -- indicate coordination between Pruitt and these Koch-backed groups with the goal of undermining the Obama administration's efforts to help curb carbon emissions and prevent climate change. ABC

Air Force Stumped By Trump's Claim Of $1 Billion Savings On Jet
The Air Force can’t account for $1 billion in savings that President Donald Trump said he’s negotiated for the program to develop, purchase and operate two new Boeing Co. jets to serve as Air Force One. “To my knowledge I have not been told that we have that information,” Colonel Pat Ryder, an Air Force spokesman, told reporters Wednesday when asked how Trump had managed to reduce the price for the new presidential plane. “I refer you to the White House,” Ryder said. A White House spokesman didn’t respond to repeated inquiries about Trump’s comments. Trump has boasted that he’s personally intervened to cut costs of two military aircraft -- the F-35, the fighter jet built by Lockheed Martin Corp., and Boeing’s Air Force One. Bloomberg

Exxon Caves To Oil Crash With Historic Global Reserves Cut
Exxon Mobil Corp. disclosed the deepest reserves cut in its modern history as prolonged routs in oil and natural gas markets erased the value of a $16 billion oil-sands investment and other North American assets. The equivalent of about 3.3 billion barrels of untapped crude was removed from the so-called proved reserves category in Exxon’s books, the Irving, Texas-based explorer said in a statement. The revisions were triggered when low energy prices made it mathematically impossible to profitably harvest those fields within five years. The sprawling, 3.5-billion barrel Kearl oil-sands development in western Canada accounted for most of the hit. Bloomberg

McCain Makes Secret Trip To Syria To Meet With US Troops
A spokeswoman for Sen. John McCain says he traveled to northern Syria last week to discuss with the U.S. forces stationed there plans for defeating the Islamic State extremist group and pushing the militants out of their self-declared caliphate in Raqqa. McCain, an Arizona Republican, is chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee. In a statement Wednesday, McCain's spokeswoman described the visit as a "valuable opportunity to assess dynamic conditions on the group in Iraq and Syria." McCain didn't announce the trip in advance. McCain has been a harsh critic of President Donald Trump's worldview, declaring his administration in disarray. But the statement says the president "has rightly ordered a review of U.S. strategy and plans to defeat" the Islamic State. Las Vegas Sun

Conservatives Welcome Trump With Delight And Wariness
For the past eight years, thousands of conservative activists have descended on Washington each spring with dreams of putting a Republican in the White House. This year, they're learning reality can be complicated. With Donald Trump's presidential victory, the future of the conservative movement has become entwined with an unconventional New York businessman better known for his deal-making than any ideological principles. It's an uneasy marriage of political convenience at best. Some conservatives worry whether they can trust their new president to follow decades of orthodoxy on issues like international affairs, small government, abortion and opposition to expanded legal protections for LGBT Americans — and what it means for their movement if he doesn't. Las Vegas Sun

Asthma Drugs May Prevent Deadly Type Of Pneumonia
A new study from the University of Virginia School of Medicine has found that common asthma drugs may be effective in protecting against a deadly form of pneumonia. Influenza pneumonia is caused by a virus and develops when the flu infection spreads to alveolar air sacs in the lower respiratory tract of the lungs."If infection is severe enough, and the immune response is potent enough, you get injury to these cells and are no longer able to get sufficient oxygen exchange," Dr. Thomas J. Braciale, Ph.D., UVA researcher and co-author of the study, said in a press release. "As a result of the infection of the cells, you can develop lethal pneumonia and die." UPI

Zika Infection Shrinks Testicles In Mice
Zika virus can be sexually transmitted through semen, and a new mouse study could help explain why that occurs -- and how the virus might damage male fertility. In lab research, Zika attacked the testicles of mice, targeting cells that produce the male hormone testosterone and ultimately causing testes to shrink, the researchers said. These findings "explain the persistence of the virus in semen," said Dr. Amesh Adalja. "If these findings hold in humans, the long-term consequences could include diminished fertility in males who were infected with Zika," said Adalja, an affiliated scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in Baltimore. He was not involved in the study. UPI

US Vice President Mike Pence on Wednesday visited a Jewish cemetery in Missouri attacked earlier in the week, helping aid workers repair over 170 tombstones toppled by vandals. The act was a tipping point for the White House after weeks of reports that antisemitic incidents and rhetoric were on the rise. Senior officials, including US President Donald Trump, began speaking out forcefully against the phenomenon  this week, breaking a period of silence. Jeusalem Post

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked was the biggest winner Wednesday night in the battle over the Supreme Court’s future, with three of four justices appointed by the Judicial Selection Committee either reflecting a more conservative approach to the law or being on her list of acceptable non-activist judges. Shaked had pushed for Jerusalem District Court Judge David Mintz, a conservative Gush Etzion resident, to be named to the Supreme Court. Haifa District Court President Yosef Elron was primarily the Israel Bar Association’s and Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon’s candidate, but was viewed as acceptable by Shaked. Jerusalem Post

Yemen crisis: Army chief killed in missile strike on camp
Maj Gen Ahmed Saif al-Yafei is said to have died in the attack outside the port city of Mokha. His death will be seen as a major setback for government forces, which are backed by a Saudi-led coalition. The Yemeni government has yet to recapture the capital, Sanaa, after two years of civil war. Maj Gen Yafei was killed along with several others when the missile hit the army camp near Mokha early on Wednesday, the military source, who is also a member of the general's family, told Reuters news agency.

Donald Trump's Golf obby under scrutiny with Clinton tweet
A Hillary Clinton retweet has drawn attention to President Donald Trump's golf outings, which critics are hoping to turn into a political handicap. The former Democratic White House candidate shared a graph suggesting her former rival spent 25 hours on the links during his first month in office. Mr Trump made his sixth trip to the golf course on Sunday, joined by professional golfer Rory McIlroy. The Republican was a frequent critic of Barack Obama's fairway excursions. BBC

Forget Five A Day, Eat 10 Portions Of Fruit And Veg To Cut Risk Of Early Death
Five portions of fruit and veg a day is good for you, but 10 is much better and could prevent up to 7.8 million premature deaths worldwide every year, say scientists. The findings of the study led by Imperial College London may dismay the two in three adults who struggle to manage three or four portions – perhaps some tomatoes in a sandwich at lunchtime, an apple and a few spoonfuls of peas at dinner.

DoJ Moves To Prevent CIA Official From Detailing Role In Bush-Era Torture
Donald Trump’s justice department has indicated it will seek to prevent the new deputy CIA director from telling a court about her role in Bush-era torture. In a Wednesday filing in a federal court in Washington state, a team of US attorneys and justice department officials said the government “anticipates asserting the state secrets privilege” to prevent Gina Haspel from being deposed by two former CIA contractor psychologists. The psychologists, James Mitchell and Bruce Jessen, are battling a lawsuit by representatives for four men who seek to hold them liable for torture they experienced in secret CIA prisons. Mitchell and Jessen designed for the CIA the so-called “enhanced interrogation” program that three of the men endured and which killed one of them. Guardian

Refugees Seeking A New Life Stream Across Canadian Border Due To 'Anti-Immigrant Feeling' In Donald Trump's America
It is just a 12 foot wide ditch at the end of an unmade road in rural Quebec where the border between the US and Canada is marked by an orange wooden stake and a five feet high stone obelisk. This ditch at St Bernard de Lacolle, about an hour’s drive south of Montreal, is just one of the unmanned border crossings along the 5,000 mile long border that has seen a surge in the number of asylum seekers since Donald Trump won the White House.
