Tech at Night: Republicans are the real tech thought leaders. The FCC stalls innovation for a power grab.
How desperate do you have to be? The radicals at Public Knowledge are trying to take credit for Republican initiatives. To claim a lefty was the ‘thought leader’ behind phone unlocking is ridiculous. That was Derek Khanna. Even Washington Post says so.
AT&T is wishing for a modern FCC so that they can innovate with the IP revolution. Instead FCC is threatening the economy by stalling, and for the basest of reasons: to try a power grab.

Did Terry McAuliffe allow GreenTech to keep on fundraising, using his name?
Man, the Washington Post is really setting itself up for some severe criticism when they finally end up endorsing Terry McAuliffe. It’s like they’re providing us with all the information we need to discredit said endorsement ahead of time: …Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe (D), is listed in a recent confidential memorandum to prospective investors as GreenTech Automotive’s “chairman emeritus.” The 70-page document includes photographs | Read More »
…Did WaPo just defend Jindal’s voucher program?
WaPo is beside itself over the Department of Justice’s suit against Louisiana’s voucher program: The government’s argument that “the loss of students through the voucher program reversed much of the progress made toward integration” becomes even more absurd upon examination of the cases it cited in its petition. Consider the analysis from University of Arkansas professor of education reform Jay P. Greene of a school that lost | Read More »
Christie Needs Conservatives
It is all but certain that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is a likely candidate for president in 2016. New information reveals, however, that the governor will have an even tougher time mobilizing the conservative base of the Republican party than previously expected. A recent YouGov poll found that Christie is more popular among liberals than conservatives. The poll also shows that more liberals (43%) | Read More »
Keywords: Jeff Bezos, Amazon, Washington Post, circulation, problems.
Sorry about the title, but I want to make sure that Jeff Bezos – more accurately, his research team – sees this post. Mind you, I’m assuming that Bezos plans to introduce the Amazon customer service paradigm to the Washington Post, but surely this is not an unreasonable assumption, hey? Anyway, on to the purpose for this post. The Washington Post is doing it again | Read More »
Summer Reading List with Niall Ferguson and Conrad Black
This week on PowerTalk, I’m serving up our late summer reading list. That’s right, the last few weeks of August tend to be filled with cookouts, vacations and lounging by the pool. If you’re doing any of those things, or if you’re like me and you’re not, you still need a good book or two to get you through the dog days of summer. With | Read More »

Hillary Watch 2016: The ‘Queen’s Machine’ Is Gearing Up To Squash Anyone In Her Path
As our Hillary Watch 2016 series marches on, Hillary 2016 pop-up ads from what I am calling the “Queen’s Machine” are bombarding my computer screen. Ads like this one below or others shouting: “Show Your Support. Take the Ready for Hillary pledge.” (One can only imagine what that pledge entails.) The ads are proof the Ready for Hillary PAC is becoming more ready every day and that the Queen’s Machine is in | Read More »

Obamacare is not living up to its promises and even the media knows it.
“For the average American out there, for the 85 and 90 percent of Americans who already have health insurance, this thing’s already happened. And their only impact is that their insurance is stronger, better and more secure than it was before. Full stop. That’s it. They don’t have to worry about anything else.” This is a quote from President Obama, and it’s also incorrect. One | Read More »
The Performance President vs. The Press Conference President
If an alien landed in Washington today and asked me to describe our leader, all I would have to do is show him video footage of two events just days apart. First would be video of our leader performing at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner (WHCD) on Saturday evening. There, the alien would watch as President Obama delivered a series of hilarious jokes with masterful | Read More »
