Tech at Night: Marsha Blackburn dings Obama on transparency. Just how secure is Tor against the US Government?
Funny how Bitcoin ATM installations get all that hype, but their later flops and removals get much less attention.
They’ve got to be so desperate for good news in the Bitcoin community. Imagine being one of those suckers who bought in at $1000 or even $800, only to get hit with the steady drumbeat of Bitcoin criminality and government attacks.
And don’t forget: Bitcoin mining is getting harder all the time. As time goes on, mining is going to get so hard that the pool will thin, making it easier for a well-off team to take over 51% of the network and hijack the whole thing. If that hasn’t already happened yet. Because if you had 51% of Bitcoin, wouldn’t you… hide some of your resources under an alias so as not to scare people off?

ObamaCare is a success, if you just ignore everything wrong with it
Everyone would like their work to be judged solely on its merits, without a single mention of its flaws. Politicians make this desire into an art form. ObamaCare turns it into an outright psychosis. How else to explain a beaming President Obama taking a victory lap over supposedly reaching 7 million enrollments with a miraculous last-minute surge? No one takes that number seriously, not even | Read More »
The Koch Brothers Ate My Homework
http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com In a stunning development, the Associated Press announced on April 1 that “President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul was on track to sign up more than seven million Americans for health insurance on deadline day Monday.” You may recall that the Congressional Budget Office determined that seven million people would need to sign up for health insurance on the government run exchanges for Affordable | Read More »
Vladimir Putin and The Return of The Czars
Andrej Illiaronov, Putin’s economic adviser between 2000 and 2005 and now senior member of the Cato Institute think tank, said that “parts of Georgia, Ukraine, Belarus, the Baltic States and Finland are states where Putin claims to have ownership. Putin’s view is that he protects what belongs to him and his predecessors,” International Business Times So Czar Vladimir has started chopping off pieces of the | Read More »
Obama Releases Criminal Aliens, Most Republicans Yawn
What happens when Republicans fuel the fire of Obama’s open borders agenda? He takes the prerogative to release dangerous illegal aliens onto our streets with no threat of political reprisal. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials last year released 68,000 illegal immigrants with criminal convictions, undercutting Democratic claims that President Obama has strictly enforced immigration laws. An internal Department of Homeland Security document compiling statistics | Read More »
The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House is the title of a book by Edward Klein that was first published May 15, 2012. The Google eBook synopsis of this publication says: “It’s amateur hour at the White House. So says New York Times bestselling author Edward Klein in his new political exposé The Amateur. Tapping into the public’s growing sentiment that President Obama is in | Read More »

Barack Obama torpedoes changes to NSA program.
Ostensibly, he’s doing something completely different: “The Obama administration is preparing to unveil a legislative proposal for a far-reaching overhaul of the National Security Agency’s once-secret bulk phone records program in a way that — if approved by Congress — would end the aspect that has most alarmed privacy advocates since its existence was leaked last year, according to senior administration officials.” “If.”
If You Like Your Coalition
Republicans in 2012 made a pretty bad error denouncing polls they did not believe. Turns out most of the polls the Republicans relied on showing what they hoped — a Romney win — were wrong. The polls they vigorously denounced were right. Democrats, though, made a mistake too that only now is visible. Democrats believed the polls that showed Barack Obama would win. But in | Read More »
Excuse me, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D), but is that Barack Obama’s dagger in your back?
This was just mean: Former Bay State U.S. Senator Scott Brown is reacting to President Obama’s comments about his potential Senate run in New Hampshire. “I’d be happy to – you know, if Scott Brown wants to move down to Texas, you know, then we could always use some moderate Republicans in other parts of the country…” Or possibly just stupidly incompetent of the President. | Read More »
Obamanomics: High Taxation/Regulation+Subsidization = Long-Term Unemployment + Dependency
Next week, Senate Democrats will restart their effort to create a de facto permanent unemployment entitlement for those out of work for up to 73 weeks. Unfortunately, instead of uprooting the entire premise of the Unemployment Insurance (UI) extension, many Senate Republicans are prepared to go along with this scheme as long as the 5 month cost is offset through some notional promises of more | Read More »
The “Consider This!” Podcast, Episode 70: For Ukraine, From Russia, With Love
The latest episode of the “Consider This!” podcast is out. Conservative commentary in 10 minutes or less. This time, I spent all my time on one topic, but it’s one that spans over 30 years. (But I’ll still be done in 10 minutes or less.) During the presidential debates between Mitt Romney and President Obama, Obama mocked Romney’s thoughts on what was the biggest geopolitical threat. Romney | Read More »
The San Francisco Democrats Finally Rule the Roost
“Vladimir Putin did not read Barack Obama’s soul. He just read Obama’s resume and knew he could take him.” In 1984, Jeane Kirkpatrick, a lifelong Democrat who Ronald Reagan appointed Ambassador to the United Nations, took to the stage at the Republican National Convention in Dallas. The Republicans and this Democrat roundly mocked the unseriousness of the Democrats who wanted to replace Ronald Reagan. Calling | Read More »
Tech at Night: DOJ comes after human trafficking online. Anti-American hysteria reaching new peaks.
DOJ is coming after human trafficking coordinated online. But don’t worry guys, all the drug dealers on Silk Road who get people hooked aren’t to blame at all, except that a lot of the victims of human trafficking get sucked into it via drug addiction. Let alone all the direct human trafficking done via Tor with Bitcoin.
In 1997 I attended a speech by Warren Buffett. One thing I’ve always remembered from it, was how he explained he prefers to invest in businesses he understands, like Coca Cola. Buffett staying away from Bitcoin doesn’t surprise me a bit. I doubt he does understand it, but at the same time the outrage by the Bitcoin ideologues is delicious. I guess it beats continued sobbing over all the exchanges that keep dying.

Send in the Clowns
Send in the Clowns by Michael Goodell http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com I’m so glad I gave up on America after the last election. Otherwise I would look at the world today and wonder whether to cry, run away and hide, or simply stick my head in the oven. However, since the last election, I am able to view this vast diorama of human suffering and decay with sang-froid. | Read More »
Obama is Dismantling Our Sovereignty and the Rule of Law
What happens when the opposition party is so committed to implementing amnesty – to the extent that they are willing to destroy their own base? The President will take the prerogative to implement amnesty on his own without fear of reprisal. I never thought we’d live to see the day when the rule of law is suspended by administrative fiat to the point that Democrats | Read More »
