Bitcoin’s Strength is also its Weakness
In the Tech at Night series, I’m constantly pointing out that Bitcoin’s greatest problem is that it’s a magnet for the scum of the earth. It turns out that’s not the problem in itself, it’s merely a symptom. The problem with Bitcoin is much simpler than that.
Bitcoin creates slavery, because Bitcoin is anarchy.

Why Does Progress Texas Photoshop Paraplegics?
Does Progress Texas have something against paraplegics? Greg Abbott, the Republican candidate for Governor of Texas, is wheelchair bound. But in this attack against him from Progress Texas they’ve photoshopped him standing up. Why? Notice also that they paired him in the attack with a shorter hispanic woman instead of even trying to pit him against Wendy Davis. In fact, Progress Texas, which presumably supports | Read More »
Feds say DC Mayor Vincent Gray (D) knew of illegal campaign contributions.
Well, well, well. A major Democratic donor pleaded guilty on Monday to funneling millions of dollars in illegal campaign donations to federal and local politicians, including an unnamed 2008 presidential candidate believed to be Hillary Clinton. District of Columbia businessman Jeffrey Thompson, who federal prosecutors say financed a “shadow campaign” for D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray in 2010, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to violate campaign finance | Read More »
“Drunks,” “Bullies,” “Traitors,” “Fringe,” and Other Things Mitch McConnell Has Called Conservatives
Mitch McConnell is doing his best to walk back his comments about conservatives. He told the New York Times he intended to “crush them everywhere.” Now he says he was only talking about the Jim DeMint founded Senate Conservatives Fund and its candidates — candidates like Ben Sasse supported by Paul Ryan, Mike Lee, Club for Growth, RedState, National Review, and others. Actually, Mitch McConnell | Read More »
Tech at Night: SXSW becomes as reflexively anti-American as the Nobel Prize. Yet more Bitcoin anarchy.
So the anti-American hate rally SXSW (in crony Democrat-run Austin) is on, though apparently some patriots haven’t gotten the message and keep going anyway. Edward Snowden stands in Russia ruled by authoritarian Vladimir Putin, and as Putin’s tanks roll into Ukraine followed by cyberwar against all who speak out against it, Snowden claims the NSA is the one attacking the Internet. I see he’s bucking for the job as the new RT America host.
And then they also let fugitive rapist (and co-conspirator with convicted spy Bradley Manning) Julian Assange speak, from his spot in the embassy of Ecuador, a country ruled for years by a leftist President and a regime conducting routine human rights violations. He made no apology for his rape, and promises more propaganda against America.

In the absence of justice, what is sovereignty but organized robbery? Saint Augustine The United States Civil Service controls entirely too much power not to be aggressively corrupted from without and within. The United States Government also has a long history of scandals and embarrassments that have lead them to pass numerous reforms to rein in corruption within the Civilian Sector of our vast Federal | Read More »

Madison Project + Mike Lee + Me
On Wednesday night, I’m going to join the Madison Project and Senator Mike Lee for a Tele-Townhall. Among the topics of discussion will be: How shrinking the federal government and fostering free market competition will benefit average American families while interventionist policies raise the cost of food, fuel, and healthcare – often to benefit well-connected special interests; Ideas for eliminating corporate welfare and corporate favors; | Read More »
@GovernorPerry: @BarackObama attempting to bully governors.
This was from a RGA panel(?), back in February: “When you have governors, and we all compete against each other — we are the laboratories of innovation — and for the President of the United States to look Democrat and Republican governors in the eye and say, ‘I do not trust you to make decisions in your state about issues of education, about transportation infrastructure,’ | Read More »
A McConnell Majority vs. an Enduring Majority
One of the more trenchant lines delivered from the podium at CPAC last week was Sarah Palin’s zinger regarding the GOP “Beltway Boys”: “You didn’t build that. The Tea Party did.” Palin was referring to the GOP House majority acquired through the 2010 midterm elections, but the same observation is apropos for the potential to win a Senate majority this year. I don’t know about | Read More »
‘Crush Them Everywhere’
“Crush them everywhere.” That is not Mitch McConnell’s expectation on beating the Democrats. That is not Mitch McConnell’s hope against Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats. This — “crush them everywhere” — is what Mitch McConnell tells the New York Times he intends to do to conservatives. “They cannot crush this conservative uprising; they can only delay it.” Across the country, as conservatives realize that | Read More »
Ted Cruz: Republicans Win When They Paint in Bold Colors
When Senator Ted Cruz spoke last week at CPAC, he brought more than a speech designed to fire up the base, though certainly that was part of his rousing appearance oat n the conservative conference. “Our people look for a cause to believe in. Is it a third party we need, or is it a new and revitalized second party, raising a banner of no | Read More »
Whoa!! Pat Caddell channels Erick Erickson at CPAC, and other observations.
Don’t know how many of you caught Pat Caddell’s address at CPAC, but it was fascinating. He excoritated the GOPe, the money men, the Roves in our midst. And then he went after Boehner. He all but called for the House GOP caucus to toss him overboard. Powerful stuff. Note: I’ve looked for a video of Caddell’s talk, but couldn’t find a link. If anyone | Read More »
It’s Time to Move the Individual Mandate Delay in the Senate
The individual mandate delay (H.R. 4118) passed the house Wednesday by a 250-160 margin and, thanks to Senator Rand Paul, the bill should be on the Senate calendar by the time you read this. Although there are tricks to bringing it up, bringing it onto the calendar means that any Senator can force the Senate to vote on delaying the mandate — or any other issue any | Read More »
NLRB accuses union thugs of violence, threats of rape and implied harm to managers’ kids
In the latest development of a more than year-long labor dispute in Vancouver, the National Labor Relations Board has accused picketers of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) Local 4 of a multitude of horrific acts which include violence, threats of rape and implied harm to children, as well as racial slurs toward company security officers. These acts, according to The Oregonian include the | Read More »
Al Cardenas Responds to Lack of Pro-Life Emphasis at CPAC 2014
The 2014 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) caused concern for the pro-life community before the doors even opened on Thursday. As noted at LifeNews Wednesday, while the agenda included a variety of topics, the issue of life was noticeably absent from the breakout panels. From the perspective of pro-life activists, the lack of inclusion perhaps indicated a deficit of interest in openly supporting what has traditionally | Read More »
