Tech at Night: Netflix got used and betrayed over Net Neutrality
Before the FCC’s vote on Barack Obama’s secret plan to regulate the Internet, Netflix was the golden boy of the Net Neutrality movement. They were constantly cited as the reason we needed regulation, and Netflix played it up, hoping winners and losers would be chosen. Well now it turns out, even Netflix opposes Obama’s plan.
Treading carefully to avoid our profanity rules here at RedState, Democrats are all upset over 47 Republican members of the Senate sending Iran a letter indicating any deal with the President is dead on arrival in the Senate. There will be no Iranian treaty. Democrats are now claiming sedition, treason, and other outrages. They are hysterically screaming that politics is supposed to stop at the | Read More »
Hillary Clinton Admitted She Is Not “An Expert on Software-Defined Storage.”
Last year, Hillary Clinton spoke at the OpenSDx Summit in San Francisco, CA. She was asked about privacy, security, and technology. In the speech, Hillary Clinton admitted “I’m not an expert on software-defined storage or the intricacies of cloud computing.” Further Admitting the U.S. Government is “woefully behind” on upgrading to next-generation technology, Clinton noted that under her tenure at the State Department, it was | Read More »
Republican Leadership Wants Barack Obama to Run Congress
This is truly unbelievable. The Main Street Advocacy group, which is a group that was formed by Republican leadership and funded by Republican leadership and their allies, and run by leadership lapdog Steve LaTourette has issued a truly unbelievable ad.

A Dumb Playbook Written by Out-of-Touch Dinosaurs
In case you were wondering where Republicans in Congress would do for an encore after having completely dispirited and depressed their voting base in less than 60 days by flubbing a slam dunk abortion bill and passing a clean DHS funding bill without anything more than a token fight over Obama’s executive amnesty, well, you’re going to want to sit down because [mc_name name=’Sen. Mitch | Read More »

Silence is Hillary’s Only Play
Yesterday on Meet the Press, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) 0% theorized that Hillary Clinton was hurting herself with the personal email scandal by not speaking out and taking questions about the whole affair. Feinstein’s reasoning is that the rules and laws regarding email archival were inherently ambiguous and if Clinton just comes out and explains that, everything will be fine: Feinstein pointed | Read More »
You Will Be Made To Accept
A bit of a deviation from Erick’s noted mantra, but hey, we’re all deviants at some level. Except for this guy, apparently… [Yvette Cormier] went to the front desk after someone who looked like a “man” entered the women’s locker room while she was changing. “I wanted to know why there was a man in the women’s locker room,” she told CNN. “He looked like a | Read More »
Hillary Milhous Clinton
Could the leaders in Washington please tell us which rules we are allowed to not follow? Please? This is getting confusing for the average American. Since 2005, the United States State Department has had very clear rules that employees cannot use personal email for official business. In 2011, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sent out an internal directive reminding State Department employees that they could | Read More »
Shoot First, Ask Questions Later
There’s been a surge of a very well meaning, but often unrealistic sentiment within our society that calls for violence being a last resort. Thing is, I notice that “violence should be a last resort” is too often applied to folk who had reacted to violence, and not the person initiating the violence. I also notice that this is only said when the offender is | Read More »
The ‘Anything political besides Hillary Clinton’ Overnight Sunday Open Thread.
Because I can’t imagine that all of you are any less tired of that woman than I am right now. It’s been a horribly slow Sunday in the news, and honestly I will start gibbering at the moon* if I don’t have other news to pontificate about. It’s all no doubt necessary that we have the current tawdry round of stories play out – as | Read More »

The Evil Party: Still Smarter than the Stupid Party
Here is an unfortunate fact of life: the shortest route between any elected Republican and an invitation to a television interview is criticism of another elected Republican. And hey, who doesn’t like being on television? Accordingly, every time any Republican says anything even slightly off kilter – especially a front running Presidential candidate, the media goes looking for other Republicans to pile on their own criticism | Read More »
Tech at Night: Regulation broke encryption, and now it may break streaming
We got news of a new, widespread Internet security hole this week, and it turns out this one was caused by government. They caused it. Government is bad at controlling the Internet, and so now it turns out the Net Neutrality plan of Barack Obama’s to regulate the Internet may cause even more problems. Net Neutrality will break streaming.
