Tech at Night: Even Dianne Feinstein tells it like it is about Edward Snowden. We have two new FCC Commissioners.
Tech at Night is coming when it’s plenty light out this afternoon, because I need to start getting some sleep in preparation for my 25 hour broadcast as part of the Extra Life children’s hospital charity event.
The FCC got two new commissioners this week, a good one in Michael O’Rielly, and a likely bad one in Tom Wheeler. This came only after Ted Cruz got the answers he was looking for. Then again, under Barack Obama that’s the best we could hope for.
It’s very rare that I agree with a gun grabber like Dianne Feinstein but come on, she’s annoying the right people by calling out Snowden as the traitor he is.

Stop the Penance — How Republicans Should Grow a Pair and Answer “the Cruz Question”
Rick Santorum is only the latest Republican finger-wagger to be hauled in front of the Sunday talk shows to offer sage after-the-fact counsel on Ted Cruz’ misdeeds and pronounce solemnly on the incalculable damage done to the GOP cause. Given the fact that the Republican party currently resembles not only a nest of vipers but a completely aimless, leaderless nest of vipers, it’s anyone’s guess | Read More »
Now, Dems want King Obamacare to delay mandate, illegally
Offered no less than two chances to delay Obamacare’s individual mandate earlier this month, not one Democrat in the United States Senate refused to grant Majority Leader Harry Reid’s motions to table those delays during the government shutdown. Yet, now that the debt limit has been raised and Big Government is back in full swing, legally; elected Democrat lawmakers revert to their apparently preferred role of granting | Read More »
The Vindication of Ted Cruz
Pundits and journalists across the country have suggested that Ted Cruz and friends accomplished nothing with the government shutdown. I’d beg to differ. Indeed, I’d suggest just the opposite. The best parallel I can draw is with Ronald Reagan in 1976 when he angered the GOP establishment by challenging Gerald Ford for the party’s nomination before he went down to defeat at the hands of | Read More »
Americans for Tax Reform’s Ryan Ellis Thinks Tea Party Activists Are “Freaking Retarded”
When last we checked in on Ryan Ellis, the Tax Policy Director for Americans for Tax Reform, he was online saying Ted Cruz can go to hell and comparing Cruz to Aaron Burr. Not content to express his hatred of Cruz, Ellis is now going after the tea party. Like with Cruz, his tweet speaks for itself: I’m pretty sure ATR has, in the past, | Read More »
Why Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are responsible for Obamacare roll out failure.
Follow me on this one. Yes, I fully supported them in their bid to defund or delay Obamacare. I truly believe that it is the most destructive force to ever be unleashed upon the American workforce and the economy as a whole. But look at it this way. Contrary to what Obama and HHS want to admit, they knew that the webpage was going to | Read More »
Ted Cruz Causes Americans for Tax Reform’s Policy Director, Ryan Ellis, to Lose It
Ryan Ellis is the tax policy director of Americans for Tax Reform. I’ll let his tweet speak for itself. UPDATED: This just got passed on to me. A few days ago Ellis attacked Cruz at the Daily Caller. Ellis participated in the comments writing: “ive been fighting obamacare since long before anyone ever heard of ted cruz. frankly, he can go to hell.“
ITIN de facto amnesty empowers Obama IRS to buy votes
Outraged that illegal aliens claimed child-tax-credits, but no outrage that current tax law allows them to report income and pay taxes without threat of deportation? The power of a president to succumb to the temptation to use executive power for political purposes has always been available. That the current occupant of the Oval Office is so uniquely brazen in betraying the trust inherent in the | Read More »
2016 and Cruz: Should we?
A lot of Republicans griped that the shutdown took away from their idea of the story to harp, on, the failed rollout of the Healthcare.gov site. Once again, the establishment would rather let people suffer than try to help them, which is possibly the exact opposite of what governing should be. It is only through the efforts of Ted Cruz and Mike Lee that a | Read More »
Cruz, Lee and me, the new RINOs…and proudly so
This gamecock thinks it’s time that tea partier and other conservatives in the GOP started referring to ourselves as RINOs, and proudly so, unless and until the majority of elected Republicans in Congress use the means that the Constitution provides to try to achieve conservative ends. To label a fellow member of the GOP as a “Republican in name only” is to question their commitment to | Read More »
Merely maintaining sequester cuts no GOP victory
Non-tea partying Senate Republicans insisted upon cruising to debt limit and government shutdown-showdown defeat after Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) dared prevent the raising of the white flag on their exclusive clubs floor for over 22 hours. And no amount of postmortem-spin of the sequester status quo can deny McCains and McConnells their latest longed-for losses at President Obama’s hands. George Will was right to describe the sequester | Read More »

Ted Cruz demonstrates what ‘walking the walk’ looks like
No more Conservative in the primary and moderate in the general. This is how ALL Senate Republicans should be talking, and walking right now. This man is doing what he was elected to do, and I for one wish Georgia had a Senator like him. http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/power-players-abc-news/ted-cruz-faults-his-party-for-agreeing-to-lousy-deal-to-reopen-the-government-211727075.html
Putting Ted Cruz Birtherism To Rest
There have been many questions regarding the Presidential eligibility of Ted Cruz. They must be answered. I trust this diary is not in violation of the site prohibition on promoting Obama-birther theories. Imagine for a moment you are a young woman, say 25. You and your husband are out of college and have bright futures ahead of yourself. You decide you want to procreate and | Read More »
GOP Operative Calls Conservatives And Tea Partiers “Uneducated” “Toxic Losers” “Neanderthals” And Ted Cruz Stupid
Frank Dyke is an area captain with the Winnebago County Republican Party and precinct committeeman in Rockford first ward who most of you have never heard of. That needs to change because what Frank has had to say in the last few days about conservatives, the Tea Party, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, and congressional candidate and Tea Party leader David Hale is important because it | Read More »

Tech at Night: Team Obama pirates software. Ted Cruz wants answers on FCC.
Seen on RedState Friday: Geoffrey Manne talks about FCC rigging the spectrum game, which is such a shame since spectrum auctions are one of the greatest regulatory innovations we’ve seen.
I bet you heard all there was to hear about Ted Cruz after the shutdown ended? Nope. He’s taking on the President’s nominee for FCC Chairman, Tom Wheeler. He wants answers, and he’s entitled to get them.
Bitcoin and crime just seem to go hand-in-hand.
