Tech at Night: Nobody cares about privacy, not even criminals
I’m sure everyone’s tired of my saying it, but nobody cares about privacy. That’s why texting and Gmail are so popular, nobody does end-to-end encryption, Facebook is nearly ubiquitous, and nude photos keep getting broadcast everywhere.
This is why it’s so silly to keep trying to obstruct NSA going after the bad guys, when people’s non-existent privacy practices are broadcasting all of that data and metadata anyway. Let’s get serious.Read More »

Sen. Mark Udall Has an Honesty Problem
The news continues to be bad for Democrat incumbent Colorado Senator Mark Udall. While knowledge of his arrest for marijuana possession has long been in the public sphere, the few details offered by the embattled Senator have now been challenged by a look back at news reports from the incident. As Senator Mark Udall tells it, he was just cruising around town back in the | Read More »
Bruce Braley (D CAND, Iowa-SEN)… did *not* vote to authorize air strikes against ISIS.
It doesn’t matter how badly Bruce Braley wants to be the next Senator from Iowa: if he is going to cast votes in Congress, he can do us all the elementary courtesy of paying attention to what he’s voting for.Read More »
Military officers resigning over policy differences is a bad idea
Last week it was reported that Republican Congressman Doug Lamborn was urging general/flag officers in the US Armed Forces to resign if they disagreed with Obama over policy: During a question-and-answer portion of the forum, a service member urged Lamborn to work with his congressional colleagues in both parties to “support the generals and the troops in this country despite the fact that there is | Read More »
Something About Liberalism Makes it Impossible To See The World As It Really Is
In an interview aired this weekend on 60 Minutes, Obama conceded that his administration (well, others in his administration, and not him specifically) had “underestimated” the growing threat that ISIS was becoming in Syria, and as a result, was late in fashioning a strategy to deal with them. One can only wonder if the majority of Americans that voted for this community agitator are learning | Read More »
Lena Dunham message aimed at the key “stupid women” demographic
As we get closer to the November elections, flopsweat is beginning to set in among Democrats. All evidence shows that not only are voters looking more favorably upon the GOP, whether from adherence to principle or abhorrence of Obama, and the intensity of GOP voters is much higher than that measured among potential Democrat voters. The only chance that the Democrats have in November is | Read More »

Democratic CT State Representative Busted on 19 Charges of Voter Fraud
(H/T: Weaselzippers) Time and again, we hear from the Democrats that voter fraud is not an important issue. Despite their ardent insistence, we continue to see people getting arrested for voter fraud, usually from their own party! Today’s news continues that trend. Democratic Connecticut State Representative Christina Ayala has been arrested on 19 counts of voter fraud. Per the New Haven Register: State Rep. Christina “Tita” Ayala, | Read More »

President Obama’s Asinine Abdication of Responsibility on Iraq
In case you missed it last night, President Obama acknowledged (sort of) that mistakes were made [by everyone but himself] in assessing the threat level that ISIS posed to the stability of Iraq and the entire region. Some low level employees in a rogue office in Cincinnati have once again conspired to create bad headlines for the President, but definitely no one should suggest that | Read More »
The Values Voters Summit Speech
Here is my speech to the Values Voters Summit.
This Is Troublesome
Last week, Senator Ted Cruz gave $250,000.00 to the National Republican Senatorial Committee. He wants the majority. Most all of us want the majority. I certainly want the majority. I wish Senator Cruz had given the money to state parties or the RNC instead of the NRSC, which will use the Cruz subsidy to undermine Senator Cruz and his allies. But I also get the | Read More »

Salon addresses the right issue, but reaches the wrong conclusion
I was up at 8 a.m. this morning (a fact I will address with my two year old later), and saw people on Twitter discussing something about a “New Constitution.” My search led me to Donna Brazile tweeting out a link from Salon entitled “We need a new constitution: Here’s how we save American democracy from charlatans, loudmouths and the 1 percent.” As an aside, while | Read More »

WaPo might be insinuating Obama’s strategy won’t work
I’ve been doing a lot of WaPo reading lately, and I’m starting to notice a trend there and in the rest of the liberal media – there is a definite wariness on the part of the journalism elite regarding the Middle East. They posted a story with a headline you might not expect to see from them, “As U.S. takes on the Islamic State, al-Qaeda | Read More »
National Republican Senatorial Committee Accuses Family Research Council of Putting Money Ahead of Values
Floyd Corkins walked into the Family Research Council’s (“FRC”) offices with a loaded gun and fifteen Chick-Fil-A sandwiches. Corkins intended to commit mass murder and smear the faces of his victims with the sandwiches. FRC had been listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center because of FRC’s opposition to the gay rights agenda. Corkins intended to murder those people because of | Read More »
Of course the Attorney General opening will be a campaign point
The news that Eric Holder was resigning wasn’t entirely unexpected. Back at the beginning of 2014, there were reports he was planning to step down before the end of the year. What wasn’t entirely clear then was when he would step down. According to a story run by The New Yorker back in February, Holder had made some noise about leaving this year. Later, the | Read More »
