Failure Theater presents Planned Parenthood edition
For two weeks now we’ve all been talking about how reprehensible and evil Planned Parenthood is. If you follow life issues, you didn’t need the two videos of alleged doctors haggling over the price of baby parts to know this. If you were under the impression that Planned Parenthood was that nice, friendly white lady who gave contraceptives to minorities and minor children and poor | Read More »
What the Hell Happened to Rand Paul?
Here is the guy who should be doing some cross-party fusion. He rallied a lot of Americans in bipartisan fashion on national security. He seemed to be playing his cards right. And . . . ? Bernie Sanders is kicking his butt in campaign fundraising. In fact, I dare say Sanders froze Paul’s chance at fusion. All the little rich libertine millennials that Paul was | Read More »
That Guy – Governor Scott Walker Runs For President
So you want a fighter to run against the perpetually angry Left. You are sick and tired of being offense-bullied by the terminally and professionally malcontented. You like good old-fashioned active aggression instead of the passive sort that ruins social trust and cohesion the way a termite colony will undermine a beautiful wooden deck. Then you want a guy who just means what he says | Read More »

Does Rand Paul Have A Fix For Our Messed Up Tax Code?
Rand Paul offers us his take on why we are having such a recoveryless recovery from the 2008 recession. He believes we are being hamstrung by our current levels and methodologies to collect Federal tax revenues. He employed Stephen Moore and numerous other experts to design a tax plan that would replace the current code and basically allow him to gut the IRS. Mr. Moore | Read More »
Tech at Night: …. but NSA gathering public information was the REAL threat
On a multi-user computer system, different user accounts have different permissions. In most Unix-based systems, there is a special account besides. Account zero, the ‘root’ user, bypasses all permissions checks. The Chinese attackers had root access to Office of Personnel Management servers. But NSA was the real threat ah, Rand Paul?
If President Obama Has No Strategy Yet To Fight ISIS, Why Is He Sending 500 More Soldiers To Fight ISIS?
President Barack Obama could end his Potemkin war against ISIS in one of two ways. He could annihilate the enemy, or he could write off Iraq and Syria. This is a tough leadership decision that a real leader would agonize over. Barack Obama in no way resembles a real leader. He will take the easy wrong over a hard right. Continuing to send additional military | Read More »
Lincoln Chafee Runs For President
Lincoln Chafee is in! He is running for President! For the first time in centuries, a man who has worked professionally as a blacksmith* is gunning for The White House. The Republic is saved. He is running as the last vestige of the old, Liberal Northern GOP. If you wondered what had become of the Progressive Wing of The GOP, Lincoln Chafee’s recent cursus honorem | Read More »
Tech at Night: Rand Paul replaces one data gathering program with another
wants you to think that large-scale data mining on (publicly available) metadata is a horrible thing, and a massive threat to your privacy. Even when that data gathering is done with a warrant. So it shows just how disingenuous his whole stunt was, that he’s doing his own privacy-threatning database building. His supporters have been duped. He was grandstanding with the national interest in order | Read More »
Good for Rand Paul
When the government shut down because refused to back down over Obamacare defunding, government agencies made all sorts of hysterical claims about what would happen if they did not have money. Conservatives were quick to point out that the calamitous claims were overblown hysteria by the government. For some reason, when the government makes calamitous claims about what is doing to the NSA, conservatives are | Read More »
Let’s not forget…
As the accolades and attaboys come in for standing up against the continuation of NSA surveillance, we would do well to remember that this is a man who believes the GOP created ISIS. While many candidates are saying that “knowing what they know now” they wouldn’t have supported the Iraq War, Paul went a step further and basically gave an updated version of his father’s | Read More »
NO DEAL: Senate Fails To Pass Short Term Extension Of Spy Program
On Sunday, key intelligence gathering provisions of the Patriot Act, set to expire at midnight, were not extended by the U.S. Senate in an 11th hour vote that took place just a week after the fate of the program was left hanging after resistance, largely organized by , prevented a consensus. However, the Senate did vote by a large margin to move forward on the | Read More »
Rand Paul PAC runs birther ad attacking Ted Cruz
It seems like every day we are confronted with more evidence that Rand Paul and his followers should be kept as far from the levers of power as Barack Obama. Paul seems to be either unable or unwilling to break free of the need to suck up to the same nutjobs and douches that kept his old man in psychotropic drugs for a couple of | Read More »
Tech at Night: Internet anarchist and Silk Road founder gets life
Ross Ulbricht, aka the Dread Pirate Roberts, founded an online crime syndicate using the Tor network. Drugs, human trafficking, guns, and even possibly murder for hire were traded in the network. He was caught, and he got life in prison. These are the threats, not monitoring terrorists.
Obama 2012: I Ended The War. Obama 2015: Only The USA Patriot Act Can Save Us!
President Barack Obama bragged during his 2012 Reelection Campaign that he ended the war in Iraq. GM alive, Bin Laden dead, Barack Obama 2012! Barack Obama was dismissive when told that threats still remained. He initially described ISIS as “the JV.” For all who would listen he loudly proclaimed a victory for peace. Now that is demanding a peace dividend in the form of reduced | Read More »

Tech at Night: Democrats and fellow travelers shut down more of the War on Terror
Yeah, at this point Rand Paul is pretty much running as Hillary Clinton-lite. You see, through various intelligence programs, the US government is able to identify foreign terrorist organizations. When those terrorists then contact folks in the United States, we have legitimate reason to know who they’re talking to, so NSA has developed means of sifting that information. And yet here we are, 13 and change | Read More »
