Tech at Night: Russia is still on the move. Where is Snowden?
Edward Snowden’s Russian asylum is set to expire, but he’s going to try to stay there rather than come back to America, despite his stated willingness to serve his time.
Edward Snowden could show the courage that the women have shown, who quit their jobs with RT to expose Vladimir Putin’s lies for what they are. He has chosen not to. Why is that?

Why We Fight
Today was my final day as a summer law clerk with the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee.

We live in a deeply disturbed world. Ethnic minority separatists | Read More »
Obama’s Own Stimulus Predictions Show We’d Have Been Better Off Without It
Upon arriving late (as usual) to his press conference, Obama launched into a tirade about the obstructive Republican party that has gotten in his way so often that the world is now on fire as a result. This was, in part, a way of using the bully pulpit to remind Americans how awesome the Recovery Act (Stimulus) was and that it is the reason for | Read More »
Josh Marshall & TPM Promise a “BOOM,” Deliver A Dud
There’s a well-known saying among lawyers that when the facts are against you, argue the law; when the law is against you, argue the facts; and when the facts and the law are both against you, pound on the table and yell like heck. The behavior of Josh Marshall of TalkingPointsMemo is just the latest illustration of this axoim among the critics of Halbig v | Read More »
The Giver: A Close Look At Reality
As a child one of my favorite places to go was the library. To be swept up and transported to another world by a book was a joy, and, although I’m not quite sure I understood it at the time, I learned much about this world in my readings.

Gaza Ceasefire Fails Utterly
For the United States, it’s nice to have the rest of the world respect us but failing that, it’s important for the stability of the globe at large to have them fear us. The current complete disintegration of the situation in Gaza is demonstrating nicely that they do neither anymore. Blaring headlines across the global news sphere are now announcing that the 72-hour ceasefire, negotiated | Read More »
Ending Spending Uses Michelle Nunn’s Memo for Advertising
Michelle Nunn’s campaign in Georgia is off to a rough general election start with the release of her campaign memo.

People Who Can Read Are “Obamacare Truthers” Now
The left has been in power so long they have completely lost both the ability to persuade people and any interest in doing so. Instead the only tools remaining in their kit are mocking and derision. So it is that we find that the left has coined a new and not very creative insult for people who believe that the Halbig plaintiffs were correct and that Obamacare, | Read More »
Putin’s Potemkin rebellion in Ukraine
When Moscow’s tool, Ukraine President Viktor Yanukovych, was deposed by a popular uprising because of his policy of turning Ukraine into a Russian client state when the people wanted a closer association with the European Union, an insurgency developed in Eastern Ukraine. That region is economically depressed and heavily populated by ethnic Russians, these Russians saw an Anschluss with Russia as their best hope for | Read More »
Boehner Has Time to Salvage a Ridiculous Farce Descended to Stupidity
House Republican leaders had a closed door meeting with their conference late yesterday where they blasted Senator Ted Cruz for obstructing their plans to hand more than $600 million of your tax dollars to the man they’re also suing for not doing his job, Barack Obama. As an aside, Senator Jeff Sessions deserves a great deal of praise, along with Senator Cruz, for his actions | Read More »
