It’s Never Too Early to Talk 2016
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Aaron Blake to discuss the 2016 presidential race, efforts to boost Democrat Hillary Clinton, and why Marco Rubio can relate to voters in a way that Mitt Romney never could.

CNN and NBC Must #DumptheDocs
The liberal media is on notice: If you’re in the business of spending millions to promote Hillary Clinton, you will not take part in Republicans’ primary debates in the 2016 presidential election. On Monday, I sent letters to NBC and CNN informing them that the RNC will not sanction any primary debates they sponsor if they do not cancel their plans to promote Hillary Clinton. | Read More »
The Obama Administration’s War on the Constitution
The Obama Administration has not been content to use the intelligence apparatus to spy on millions of Americans, now it is using the same information to arrest Americans for crimes based on illegally obtained information and concealing the source of that information from the courts.

Danny Davis (D), Bobby Rush (D): involved in Mugabe lobbying scheme?
Guys, guys, guys: Mugabe’s radioactive. I know that his money spends as good as anybody else’s, but that’s only because he uses foreign currency for the bribes lobbying. Zimbabwe’s local currency is, in a word, useless; and there’s a reason for that. Tsk, tsk, tsk.
On The “Lady Bro”
Interesting piece. If you’re going to copy men, how about emulating the best parts of men? Because getting drunk and eating live goldfish isn’t “topping gender roles,” it’s just acting like a drunken spaz. I’m a student at Princeton, and before I even arrived on campus my freshman year, I heard the Tiger Inn stories: competitive projectile vomiting, harmonious chanting of “tits for beer,” and naked | Read More »
Wife Of Ft. Hood Survivor: “DOD Is Gagging Us” *UPDATED
Autumn Manning, wife of Army Staff Sgt. Shawn Manning who was wounded in the Ft. Hood terror attack, is speaking out on Twitter. Manning claims that the Department of Defense has “slapped victims of violence with gag orders” and is preventing them to discuss denial of benefits and other developments in the wake of the attack. The attack was famously classified as “workplace violence” and | Read More »
Tech at Night: TOR hacked. Bradley Manning could get 90 years. Christopher Poole profiting from sick behavior.
For months I’ve been dreaming of the day that NSA could crack TOR. Well, it turns out, they did it. That child pornographer in Ireland I mentioned previously? It sounds like that’s how they got him.
TOR, aka The Onion Router, is a distributed network designed to let people do things online without their actions being traceable back to their locations. It failed.
In more good news, convicted spy Bradley Manning is facing 90 years in prison for working with fugitive rapist Julian Assange and his Wikileaks gang.
This is so disgusting: Users of Christopher Poole’s site 4chan are willfully tormenting the family of a dead teenager. Poole, aka ‘moot’, needs to do something about the sick community on his site. I hold him responsible for his continued failure to act. His site is a hub for criminal and anti-social activity. He does nothing to stop it, instead choosing to profit from it.

Colorado Democrats: We Love Guns Again!
So this just happened: Magpul just left Colorado due to the laws they passed which banned Magpul’s primary product — and banned Coloradans from purchasing their product. Colorado Democrats fought hard to disarm women on college campuses. When constituents (who were cut out of a decision about their Second Amendment rights by legislators who refused to put it on the ballot) got the chance to | Read More »
The August Amnesty End-Run Around the Conservative Base
One difference between the two major parties is that Democrats harness the energy of their base to fight legislative battles; Republicans make end-runs around their base to obviate their energy. Let’s examine the GOP’s strategy for dealing with immigration. Instead of harnessing their energy to fight amnesty and hang it around the necks of Democrats in the red state electoral landscape next year, they are | Read More »
Congress’ fiduciary duty to repeal ObamaCare
As I was putting together the latest roundup of horrible ObamaCare news, I found myself wondering how Congress could reconcile a failure to repeal or defund this disaster with their basic fiduciary duty to the American taxpayer. I know this will sound hopelessly quaint, but the government is supposed to be a careful steward of our public treasury. The treasury is filled with property confiscated | Read More »
David Vitter Fights Back Against Obamacare
I reported yesterday that Senate Republicans and Democrats have declared truce over Obamacare as it relates to congressional staffers and members of Congress themselves. Republicans have decided they will not attack Democrats because they want the exemption too.One member of Congress who is not only enraged by this, but is willing to do something about it, is Louisiana Senator David Vitter. This afternoon he has | Read More »
Some time around 11:30 a.m. we reached the $10,000.00 goal from around 200 donors for Ken Cuccinelli. I’m curious to see how much we can raise. Before sunset we crossed $15,000.00.Please join me in giving Ken Cuccinelli a contribution. This is the most important race across the country this year. He needs our help. Just today there is another story about Terry McAuliffe’s dealings with | Read More »
What The American Orwell State Can and Can’t Secure
What a society can and cannot protect speaks volumes about its underlying values. America has increasingly degenerated into a nation that indulgences in over the top, bullying security theatre while proving itself increasingly unable to protect things that are actually important. Congressman Jeff Duncan recently toured an IRS facility and saw agents firing AR-15s. He couldn’t help but wonder what these were for.
“I think Americans raise eyebrows when you tell them that IRS agents are training with a type of weapon that has stand-off capability. It’s not like they’re carrying a sidearm and they knock on someone’s door and say, ‘You’re evading your taxes,’” Duncan said
UVA student Elizabeth Daly will think twice about ever reaching for the cookie dough and bottled water at Harris-Teeter in Charlottesville, VA. It seems the crack para-military agents of the VA Alcoholic Beverage Control Gestapo were concerned that somehow that bottled water was more than just bottled water.

The Coming Sea Change in American Politics
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Allysen Efferson are joined by David Pietrusza to discuss the history of libertarian philosophy in American politics, why there is a real movement for change in America and how Ted Cruz and Rand Paul could significantly shift the country’s political landscape.

Why has Bob Filner not been arrested? #waronwomen
Is there not enough evidence by now for a grand jury? Because there are several members of the National Women’s Veterans Association of America (NWVAA) that would no doubt like an answer to those two questions. Three weeks ago, as women began to step forward to reveal instances of sexual harassment, the veterans at the NWVAA began to compare notes. Tara Jones, the president of | Read More »
