Tech at Night: Google, Apple, Adobe, FCC, FBI, TSA, Free Press
So, while Google may have seen the light on Net Neutrality (which is actually, amusingly enough, making the far left sound like me), they still have other issues going on. The WiSpy Street View spying issue is still ongoing, with South Korea raiding their offices and Germany pressuring the firm to be more transparent and responsive to privacy complaints about the program. Because as I | Read More »

Excerpt Of New Book Sheds Light On Libby Prosecution
What Does I. Lewis ‘Scooter’ Libby REALLY Have To Do With National Security? Did you perhaps miss something in the noise? The courts sealed and withheld justice through fake orders and a secret court. George W. Bush had never really been in charge of his Administration. Justice Anthony Kennedy’s remarks of August 6, 2006 had no effect on the disasterous emotional turmoil, in that, “every | Read More »

On Charlie Crist and the FBI: See, I Told You So
Early this morning I made the case that the FBI and IRS investigation in Florida had more to do with Charlie Crist than Marco Rubio despite breathless headlines to the contrary.I’ve gotten lots of emails that I was just shilling for Marco and, said one, need to take the news “like a man.”Well, I told you so.Turns out the investigation has been going on for | Read More »

More Clown College Antics.
If it weren’t so comi-tragic in these days of the constant threat of terrorist penetration of our vaunted ‘national security’ apparatus, it would make a great sit-com… or a third-ring, floppy-shoe, fright-wig clown act. We have a Justice Department trying to be the CIA, FBI and NSA all in one delightful package, under our intrepid and totally inept Attorney General Eric Holder. It’s one grandstand | Read More »
The Second Most Arrogant Man in Washington, Eric Holder
I apologize for the multiple diaries, but some things are time-sensitive. Iran is, and so is this case of the Christmas “knicker-bomber” which is quickly spiraling out of control; from a departmental security slip-up, to a full blown scandal, with criminal, or at least serious legal overtones. It’s no longer that Obama should fire Eric Holder. The Republican Party should insist on his impeachment, and | Read More »
Information? We don’t need no stinking information……
A Nation of Fools by Peary Perry (Sign up for future columns at www.pearyperry.com) INFORMATION? WE DON’T NEED NO STINKING INFORMATION….. In colonial days, the British soldiers were called ‘redcoats’ because of the color of their uniforms. The powers that be at the time thought it made sense to have their uniforms the same color as blood so that if somebody got shot the other | Read More »

The Domestic Face Of “Overseas Contingency Operations”
From The Political and Financial Markets Commentator Take A Good Look At This Man Remember back in March when the name change order came down from the top? No more Global War On Terror. It was now to be known as Overseas Contingency Operations. I suppose that GWOT had negative connotations to the Obama administration. The President had the idea of putting lipstick on the | Read More »

FBI Director Rebukes Obama Administration, Congressional Democrats
In response to a question from Congressman Lamar Smith (R-TX), FBI Director Robert Mueller gave the House Judiciary Committee a rundown of the Bureau’s concerns about transferring Guantanamo terror suspects to the United States. President Obama and his Democrat friends in Congress would be wise to take note of Mr. Mueller’s warnings.

What were Rahm Emanuel’s (D) links to Tim Mahoney (D), anyway?
No, I don’t have any updates to the FBI investigation of former Congressman Mahoney (D, FL-16) and whether he used campaign funds to pay off one of his mistresses, sorry. That’s going to be a quiet kind of story until the FBI finishes said investigation; after all, Mahoney was brutally sacrificed to the media gods by the Democratic Party desperate to have that story not | Read More »
