Tech at Night: CISPA is fine, Lieberman-Collins is not. Let Verizon innovate. Make Netflix compete.
Yup, CISPA is still the top story. It will improve our security, which matters in an age of Chinese and Anarchist Internet attacks. And unlike Lieberman-Collins, Which is the bill being pushed in the Senate, no government power grab is involved. So the House is right to challenge the President’s push for Lieberman-Collins. Lungren’s PRECISE Act is another bill that would create no new regulations. | Read More »

Facts Obama Doesn’t Want You to Connect
Cross-Posted from my new site Emerging Corruption. What really happened during the 2008 elections? Recent information regarding the primary caucuses paints the picture of a campaign that would stop at nothing to win. A campaign that was willing to strong arm candidates and volunteers in order to meet its goal. The documentary We Will Not Be Silenced delves into the Obama 2008 Campaign. “We believe | Read More »
The ‘For The Record’ Tuesday Memorial Open Thread.
For the record: I expect and require that the 112th Congress will pay a whole lot more attention to its duties with regard to monitoring and overseeing the Federal Election Commission than the 110th Congress ever did. They can feel free to call the Commissioners in for weekly reports and Q&A sessions, in fact. I suspect that the American electorate – at least, the ones | Read More »
Reverse The Vote!: a reminder.
The subject came up yesterday about what specific funds groups like the NRCC can or cannot collect on their phone calls. You see, there is a section of the GOP base that is simultaneously mad at the national committees and aware that said committees do in fact provide support for worthy Congressional candidates; unfortunately, it turns out that the FEC regulations are – surprise, surprise! | Read More »

SarahPAC raised $733,000 in five months
That’s right, five months — not six — bacause as Allah notes at Hot Air — SarahPAC wasn’t fully operational until the end of January: “By comparison, Romney’s PAC raised $1.4 million through the end of May, but then fundraising is pretty much Mitt’s full-time gig these days and he already has a polished team around him left over from the primaries. Let’s see what | Read More »
U.S. Government claims power to ban books and speech. Citizens United v. FEC.
www.thepoliticalclass.com U.S. Government claims power to ban books and speech. Citizens United v. FEC. Back in early 2008 a 527 organization attempted to release a movie about Hillary Clinton titled Hillary, The Movie but it never made it to theaters. The battle between Clinton and Obama for the nomination of the Democratic Party was still toe-to-toe and any attacks on Hillary were considered verboten | Read More »
Palin has NOT filed for a 2012 presidential run
How do we know? Well, we actually bothered to call the FEC for confirmation of what this page on its website is all about. Some folks were getting a little carried away on the web over this.
A technical look at Obama’s campaign finance fraud
For months now, Barack Obama’s Presidential campaign has been praised for its expert use of computer technology. The website and other communications media were all supposed to be so well done for reaching out to voters and fund raising. His was a website made by expert. It is therefore unlikely, then, that the fraud-friendly Obama donation form with its flaws found by Matthew Mosk was | Read More »
Barack Obama, Jr.
Evidently many Americans don’t realize they’re being sold down the river – and they’re not concerned with all of the illegal money Obama is plopping into his campaign funds? It will take years for FEC to straighten out this “Obama Mess.” The Presidential Election isn’t a lottery or game show – it’s our one chance to select a “real leader” who will place country first. | Read More »
Show me the money
Picked up an interesting blog here on Obamas campaign money source Obama’s internet campaign started out innocently enough with basic e-mail networking , lists saved from previous party campaigns and from supporters who visited any of the Obama campaign web sites. Small contributions came in from these sources and the internet campaign staff were more than pleased by the results. Then, about two months into | Read More »
Billionaires and Millionaires Endorse Obama

Can’t See the Transparency Through The Fog
The New York Times today has basically pooh-poohed the GOP for ‘complaining’ over a couple million dollars from foreign donors. They ignore the fact the recent Newsmax report that gives examples of foreigners giving donations and the Obama campaign promising to refund their money at a future date (after ‘repeated FEC warnings’, compliance claims by the Obama campaign, and the inability to tell if the | Read More »
Obama campaign funded by foreign citizens
It’s against the law. But it doesn’t matter to Barack Obama. He is allowing foreign citizens to fund his Presidential campaign. Campaigns do not have to disclose anything about people who give less than $200.00 to a campaign. John McCain discloses all the donors, regardless of their contribution. Barack Obama? Not so much. But Ken Timmerman has been able to piece together enough clues to | Read More »
