Blast from the past: Michael Barone predicted the Obama Thugocracy in ’08.
The more things change… ‘I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors,” Barack Obama told a crowd in Elko, Nev. “I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face.” Actually, Obama supporters are doing a lot more than | Read More »
The Veiled Reference to Nixon
Bob Woodward was pretty clearly making a comparison between Barack Obama and Richard Nixon.Here is his remark:Can you imagine Ronald Reagan sitting there and saying ‘Oh, by the way, I can’t do this because of some budget document?’ Or George W. Bush saying, ‘You know, I’m not going to invade Iraq because I can’t get the aircraft carriers I need’ or even Bill Clinton saying, | Read More »
Tech at Night: How to fight Chinese Cybersecurity threats? Democrats promoting the Regulatory-Industrial Complex
The evidence mounts that we need to respond to Chinese attacks on American industry. But what do we do about it when we have few tools short of military attack? Hit them back in kind, I would think.
Of course, Seton Motley says Barack Obama is attacking our Internet access with his illegal, overreaching regulations. Remember: the courts have already pointed out his NLRB efforts have been flat out illegal, and the FCC’s Net Neutrality efforts have also been overturned once before.

Lincoln, Zero Dark Thirty and (Les) Miserable(s) Obama
The Great Emancipator, a great moment, a great mistake and the Oscars DeVine Law, even during our increasingly strict TV sabbatical of the past several years, always watches the Academy Awards even if we don’t see most of the nominated movies until they appear years later on TNT. We especially miss the days when Billy Crystals and Johnny Carsons hosted the event, but the annual | Read More »
Tech at Night, er, Sunday Morning: Stop blaming the victim and pass sensible cybersecurity legislation. Free Press not for a free press.
I can’t agree with Jerry Brito on cybersecurity legisiation. That the President did the wrong thing, the wrong way, doesn’t mean we don’t need the right thing done the right way. It’s time we stopped playing blame the victim.
How about more Free Press? Mike Wendy thinks they need to man up, a fair point. Instead of trying to silence opponents, debate. Then Jonathan Lee makes another great point: Free Press trying to silent AT&T isn’t exactly advocacy for a free press, is it?

Full results of poll in fast-growing Kansas City suburb – No, voters don’t want “more taxes” and “more services” from government
PART 4 OF 4 about poll in Gardner, Kansas. You can read part 1 here, part 2 here, and part 3 here. In August 2011, I polled Kansas’ second-largest city of Overland Park, a suburb of Kansas City, MO. We learned, in part: 67% of voters wanted to balance the city budget through cuts in spending, and only 23% wanted higher taxes. Asked a different | Read More »

Annnnnnd the Hanford Nuclear Reservation is leaking again.
Yes, “leaking.” Six underground radioactive waste tanks at the nation’s most contaminated nuclear site are leaking, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee said Friday. [snip] The tanks, which already are long past their intended 20-year life span, hold millions of gallons (liters) of a highly radioactive stew left from decades of plutonium production for nuclear weapons. Yes, “again” (via @seanmdav): In our 1989 report on the Department | Read More »
Tech at Night: The President’s order is published. Wifi Spectrum coming.
I took President’s day off. I know, terrible, right? Well let’s try to catch up.
So the President’s Cybersecurity order has been published. EO 13636. Part of it relates to information sharing. Interesting that even as he does that, he opposes actual regulation to share information. CISPA would be an actual law though, but the President cares not for the Constitution.
Oh, but he’s also going to use diplomacy as cybersecurity. Yeah, that’ll work.

His Idea: Why Did Barack Obama Propose It?
Today, Barack Obama spoke out about the pending sequestration flanked by first responders and others. What he did not mention was that sequestration was President Obama’s idea. Today, President Obama said: Emergency responders like the ones who are here today — their ability to help communities respond to and recover from disasters will be degraded. But sequestration was his idea. Border Patrol agents will see | Read More »
Barack Obama to actively campaign against the sequester THAT HE HIMSELF PROPOSED.
And he’s going to do it with the usual living props, too: “President Barack Obama will once again call on members of Congress to avoid the mandatory spending cuts due to hit at the end of the month, joined by first responders whose jobs may be on the line, according to a White House official.” Some thoughts on this: This is remarkably small-ball for a | Read More »
The Breathtaking Greed of the Self-Proclaimed Cassandra
The Breathtaking Childishness of the Self-Proclaimed Cassandra by Michael Goodell http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com It still being too cold to Reoccupy Wall Street, tens of thousands of baristas and grad students descended upon the nation’s capital yesterday to protest the perpetually proposed Keystone XL pipeline. It was your typical anti global warming protest, “held in biting winds and near-freezing temperatures,” according to Jim Snyder of Bloomberg News. It | Read More »
Dr. Ben Carson’s Biblical Life Lessons as High School ROTC Cadet Colonel
Why does Dr. Carson care so fervently and so deeply? It is quite obvious. He loves America and all that God has given him the ability to do and to helps others with. Dr. Carson has insisted all along, “I have to come to realize that God does not want to punish us, but rather, to fulfill our lives. God created us, loves us and wants to help us to realize our potential so that we can be useful to others.”

The Cruelty of the Minimum Wage
In his State of the Union speech Tuesday, President Obama called for an increase in the federal minimum wage, gloating that it had been endorsed even by his vanquished moderate Republican opponent in the 2012 campaign. A minimum wage increase is not needed, and would harm those it’s supposed to help.
Empty rhetoric and meaningless lines: the Obama non-presidency
After Tuesday night’s State of the Union (5 down, 3 to go!), nothing has changed: Barack Obama remains a Marxist caricature, his presidency vapid by historical standards, and his leadership style exemplar of fecklessness… You wouldn’t know it by the applause in the House chamber, nor by the booming economy that never stopped booming around the Beltway, but this recovery is no recovery outside the | Read More »
