John Kerry talks a lot, says very little about #Ukraine.
Oh, brother. Bob Schieffer: The President spoke to Vladimir Putin we are told for 90 minutes yesterday. The White House is describing it as the toughest phone call of his presidency. DO you think it had any impact? What John Kerry said:
And the setup of a Russian client state in Crimea continues apace.
Told you this would happen. Meet the new boss, taking orders from the old bosses: The newly installed, pro-Russia prime minister of Crimea declared on Saturday that he had sole control over the military and the police in the disputed peninsula and he appealed to President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia for help in safeguarding the region. [snip] In his statement Saturday, the Crimean prime | Read More »
Tech at Night: Bitcoin sites continue to fall to thefts. A big Satellite TV bill is coming.
Started a new job officially this week, which means I personally have a new day to day schedule. This is going to be an adjustment. I’ll hopefully have a minimal disruption of Tech, but we’ll see at first.
Remember how Edward Snowden kept claiming that he was just protecting American privacy and exposing NSA overreach? That’s a lie. The fact is, Snowden is not reliable and it’s a shame NSA mistakenly trusted him.
Yet another Bitcoin site has shut down due to the rampant theft in the Bitcoin community.

Landrieu campaign, media doubling down on Koch bashing
Not too too long ago, I put up a post on how the Left was going into outrage mode over an Americans For Prosperity ad running in Louisiana that featured paid actors and not Louisiana residents. Lucky for all of us, Mary Landrieu’s office is not yet done attacking AFP and the Koch Brothers, who are the money behind AFP, over the ad. In a clearly | Read More »
The Democrats’ efforts to turn Texas blue, Battle Ground Texas, has gone full ACORN. This week we learned election workers in San Antonio engaged in voter intimidation. According to the San Antonio Express-News, two election workers were chastised for steering Hispanic voters to vote Democrat during this week’s early 2014 primary voting: “Two election workers at a Southwest Side polling site were chastised this week after Hispanic Republican | Read More »

Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards: Does it Matter if We’re Killing Living Humans?
Cecile Richards is the President of Planned Parenthood, an organization that aborts hundreds of thousands of unborn children a year. You would think, given this, that Cecile Richards would have some sort of coherent philosophical belief about when life begins that would indicate (at least to her) that she doesn’t oversee mass infanticide. You would be wrong: On America with Jorge Ramos this weekend, Cecile | Read More »
NC GOP: It’s Time For Senator Hagan To Stop Hiding And Denounce Rev. William Barber’s Extremism
In 2008, a controversy surfaced around President Obama, one that the mainstream press did everything in their power to ignore, suppress, and generally pretend was much ado about nothing. Who can forget Reverend Wright? He was Barack Obama’s bombastic and offensive preacher, who used anti-Semitic and inflammatory rhetoric on a regular basis from the pulpit where our President heard his weekly sermons. Well it seems | Read More »
The (Belated) William F. Buckley Memorial Open Thread
Six years ago yesterday, the modern Conservative Movement lost one of its founders, William F. Buckley. In memory of his passing, here are some clips from his famous show Firing Line that seem especially relevant to our time. Perhaps we can learn a few things from them. First is a clip from his 1966 interview with Senator Barry Goldwater on the future of conservatism: Next | Read More »
Federal Court Okays Ban of American Flag at School
Yesterday, the 9th US Circuit ruled that the display of the American flag could be banned in a school if enough hoodlums threatened violence and the school lacked the will to do anything about it. Apparently Live Oaks High School in Morgan Hill, CA allows a celebration of Cinco de Mayo. Cinco de Mayo, as we know is a Mexican holiday that was popularized in the US by chain | Read More »
@KindforCongress, @Barrow4GA, Collin Peterson, @ericswalwell, & @BishopforCongress’s dirty Koch money.

Barrow, John (D-GA) Bishop, Sanford (D-GA) Matheson, Jim (D-UT) Kind, Ron (D-WI) Peterson, Collin (D-MN) Swalwell, Eric (D-CA) Screenshot here, just in case.
Reefer Madness: Obama’s NLRB Has Gone To Pot
Based on the last 60 years of union decline, it is easy for one to conclude that America’s union movement has been going to pot for many, many years. However, whether due to sheer desperation or perhaps due to its current leadership having come of age during the 1960s, unions have taken a keen interest in unionizing a budding industry—that of the marijuana industry.

You Seek to Dragoon Me Into Violating My Conscience.
We are once again having one of those great debates that in modern politics skips right past any sort of compromise and has the views of elite lawyers cast into law by our courts. I am not speaking of gay marriage; the Roberts Court signaled where that’s going. I instead mean whether Christian merchants can be coerced by act of law into providing services for | Read More »
An Upside Down World
In December of 1865, the several American states ratified the thirteenth amendment constitutionally ending involuntary servitude in the United States. In the twenty-first century, Americans are coming full circle. In a number of states, a black man can again be forced by the government to work involuntarily for a white man. Not since the nation eliminated Jim Crow laws during the civil rights era have | Read More »
