Tech at Night: AT&T’s revenge; global infringers shielded abroad as Barack Obama fiddles
Remember when AT&T tried to get T-Mobile’s spectrum in order to give Verizon some more competition? And how Sprint opposed that because it would heighten competition? Well now it’s turnabout. SoftBank is attempting to buy a majority of Sprint, which will in turn take a majority of Clearwire. That will give Softbank control of a large amount of US Spectrum. So AT&T wants regulatory review. Heh.
To be clear, I think it’s a good thing that firms are doing what they can to get spectrum and compete, even if I laugh at the revenge attempt going on here. In fact I think it would have been very interesting to see Softbank/Sprint/Clearwire vs AT&T/T-Mobile vs Verizon. But we’ll see what shakes out in the end.Read More »
RS Interview: Tom Smith (R CAND, PA-SEN).
This is a race that has recently hit the radar, largely because Tom has seriously narrowed the gap between him and incumbent Senator Bob Casey – and if you don’t like a Republican-leaning pollster’s +2, well, there’s always Quinnipiac’s -3, or Morning Call’s -2. Heck, even the Democratic-leaning PPP had to struggle to get Casey at 50: amazing what you can get with a D+11 | Read More »
Another Scandal by Obama Adminstration
Amidst ongoing questions concerning the potential cover-ups by the Obama Administration of Fast and Furious and the Benghazi attack, another scandal is coming back to light for the White House. The U.S. Secret Service made the news last April when a number of agents were suspended after being accused of consorting with prostitutes while in Cartagena, Columbia for the Summit of the Americas attended by | Read More »
Obama Claims Al Qaeda Is ‘Remnant’ After They Sack Our Consulate
Read More »
In Barack Obama’s appearance on The Daily Show last night he asserted that al Qaeda existed in remnant form. This is demonstrably untrue. Since handing Libya over to al Qaeda in Africa it has become a resurgent force on that continent.
Why Todd Akin Should Win
Senator McCaskill should be proud of Craig Woods. She said the following about whistleblowers back in 2009. “[w]histleblowers are our first line of defense against waste, fraud, and abuse. We’ve got to do everything possible to protect them,” McCaskill said then. “Whistle-blowers who raise the alarm about waste, fraud, and abuse should be commended — not punished,” McCaskill said in an April 26, 2012 press | Read More »
Barack Makes A Funny – Four Americans Remain Quite Dead
A lot of people are angry about a lot of things concerning Barack Obama’s ongoing SCOAMF*-Fiesta in the nation of Libya. I addressed what it reinforced to me about his administration in a recent diary. Barack Obama exists at altitude and distance from the results of any decisions that he makes. He takes responsibility for his leadership decisions as President about as much as I take responsibility for playing the wrong guy on my fantasy football team.
He demonstrated his utter lack of concern about what happened by sending out Susan Rice and Stephanie Cutter to tell 1,001 Arabian Lies about what transpired on that fatal anniversary of 9/11 in Benghazi, Libya. When lying and blame shifting didn’t work, he ignored the first rule of holes** and continued his descent. He wants us to believe the whole thing is just a bump in the road – so inconsequential that he can poke a little fun at himself over at Comedy Central.Read More »
Obama’s Solyndra Venture Killed By Free Market Not By Chinese Dumping
Read More »
When Solyndra failed and flushed some $535 million of US taxpayer money down the toilet, Solyndra management and the US government looked around for a scapegoat. They chose Chinese solar panel manufacturers. In reality, the seeds of Solyndra’s demise were sown before it received its first federal dollar and due diligence by the Obama regime would have discovered that fact.

Obama’s Support Among Young Voters Craters
Read More »
Obama’s support among young voters is cratering. Not only are they less likely to vote at all in 2012 than in 2008, their affinity for Obama is no higher that it was for John Kerry. Adding to the bad news, young Romney voters are much more likely to vote than young Obama voters.

Easy Come, Easy Go? Unions’ Suit to Kill Indiana’s Right-to-Work Law Moves Forward
Just as many Hoosiers get used to the idea of not being forced to pay union dues as a condition of employment under Indiana’s new Right-to-Work law, according to a Circuit Court Judge, a suit filed by the United Steelworkers to strike down the new law can move forward. Until earlier this year, Indiana workers who went to work at a unionized company could be | Read More »

RS Interview: Col. Martha McSally (Ret.) (R CAND, AZ-02).
This is an interesting race: the Democrats are faintly desperate to hold onto Gabby Giffords’ old seat in Arizona, to the point where they tried to suggest that a combat pilot and squadron commander was some sort of in-the-kitchen cardboard cutout for the GOP. We had a bit of a chat about that with Col. McSally, and a few other things: …and it actually went | Read More »
