Tech at Night: The Patent fight is on (with bonus Logan Act “violation”)
Looks like we have the same problem going on with patents we’ve had with so many other legislative issues over the years. There’s a kernel of a good idea (go after patent trolls), but then the lobbyists all pile on, and we get a monster of Comprehensive Patent Reform. Which works about as well as comprehensive immigration reform or omnibus budgeting. ACU’s against it, economists | Read More »
A 2016 Advantage?
Yesterday, something phenomenal happened. While I dare not call DOOM (1. that’s Moe Lane’s job and 2. I think it would be a bit premature), I do believe Hillary irreparably hurt herself in the race for the White House in 2016. My colleague Leon Wolf updated the Republican Power Rankings yesterday, so you can see where the GOP is in terms of having a series | Read More »
Human Trafficking vs. Taxpayer-Funded Abortion
The Democrats are really working hard to remain genuinely awful, and a bill that fights human trafficking is their latest attempt to do so. Senate Democrats are threatening to pull their support from a bipartisan anti-trafficking bill set for Senate action this week. They are infuriated over an abortion-related provision that Democrats say was slipped in without their knowledge. The legislation passed the Senate Judiciary | Read More »
Hey President Obama: Do Something About It
As it happens, I tend to agree that members of the opposition party in Congress should not send letters to foreign governments that the President is negotiating with in order to undercut his negotiating position. I think the proper thing to do in case the opposition party feels that they will not ratify an agreement the President might make is for them to send a | Read More »
Hillary Clinton to America: Bite me!
It wasn’t political theater on the scale of Andrew Breitbart hijacking Anthony Weiner’s press conference but it verged on epic in a Buddhist-monk-self-immolating type of way. Hillary Clinton used the occasion of her appearance at the UN on behalf of the ongoing RICO violation and money laundering operation known as the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation to address the building avalanche of questions around | Read More »
Jed Babbin on Hillary’s Email Scandal and a Nuke Deal with Iran
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Allysen Efferson are joined by Jed Babbin to discuss Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, the Iran nuke negotiations and reactions to Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech before Congress.

The Ludic Fallacy in Modern American Climate Science
It’s Not Reality That Is Wrong. The Ludic Fallacy* has overtaken many fields of advanced intellectual endeavor in Post-modern America. Bo Bennett of Logically Fallacious.com describes this philosophical error as follows: Assuming flawless statistical models apply to situations where they actually don’t. This can result in the over-confidence in probability theory or simply not knowing exactly where it applies as opposed | Read More »
My friend Dave refers to Hillary Clinton as America’s ex-wife. Her press conference yesterday proved him right. The dirty little secret of the Clinton regime is that the press adored Bill Clinton. He was a McDonalds eating, womanizing man whore, who could chit chat on anything, tell a joke that’d make you blush, and then get back to work. And the fraternal press corps loved | Read More »
BREAKING: House Democrats Send Letter to U.S. Adversary Pledging Opposition to the President
Coming on the heels of the revelation that 47 Republican Senators sent a letter to Iran undermining President Obama’s ambitions in the country, I can now report to you that a number of Democrats, including the former Speaker, have engaged in the same behavior. They sent a letter to one of our clear adversaries and declared their opposition to the President’s foreign policy in the | Read More »
The ‘Logan Act’ is the Talking Point of Hacks and Morons
I have to hand it to Democrats. This is the first time they’ve ever labeled someone a traitor and not sought to ally with him against the United States. Chris Matthews, the longer he stays at MSNBC, becomes more and more as dumb as a bag of rocks. He thinks the 47 United States Senators who signed a letter to Iran should be charged under | Read More »
ISIS Is Not Lying To Anyone
He Means Business. Evil Business. Christopher Cornell of Cincinnati, Ohio doesn’t deal in pretense or mince words. He joined ISIS, he stockpiled weapons, and he intended to wax prominent figures in and around DC. He threatened to personally shoot President Barack Obama. It’s a shame nobody found Cornell a nice job at Target or Jiffy Lube. He describes his plans below. | Read More »
More Failure Theater from the GOP
Recently I posted on the concept of Failure Theater. This happens when the GOP pretends to do something but in reality intends to do nothing. The resulting kabuki drama is carried out solely for the benefit of the people they are trying to fool. The letter written by Senator Tom Contton to Iran’s leaders has allowed a small group of GOP senators to put on | Read More »
