How come Google got to see proposed “Net neutrality” rules (and get them changed) but the public cannot?

Putting aside the fact that Google may very well be right here this development just reflects whose interests are represented at the FCC. It’s not ours that’s for sure.

Why won’t Commissioner Wheeler testify before Congress before the vote? Why can’t the public see the now secret rules before they are adopted? Google apparently got to.

Washington Post: The progressive ideas behind the lack of free speech on campus (More “Left-fascism”)

Left-fascism is the version of fascism which is generally associated with the so called “Left” which is exhibited in many nodes of American culture but particularly at some universities. Many people know it as “political correctness” but it goes much deeper than just that.

Though Left-fascism embraces the Marxist ideas of “hierarchy” and “oppression” and other tenets associated with the radical Left, Left-fascism has more in common with Goebbels and Hitler than it does with anything which could remotely be called “liberal.” God forbid (trigger warning: I used the name of God, oh wait too late) any legitimate quest for truth or beauty. Left-fascism, driven by the grievance studies crowd, is an oppressive, anti-intellectual, anti-liberal, anti-human (even anti-humanist) ethos of death and self pity. It is a philosophy of second class minds.

And the thing is, the Left-fascists know it. That’s why they have to bully everyone.

The Border Patrol Continues to Act as if a Federal Judge Hadn’t Just Blocked Obama’s Amnesty

The issue here is not really one of immigration for us. As we’ve stated before we are open to immigration generally. People have a right to move. But if America becomes a place where the rule of law is not respected, if America becomes a place where the president and the executive branch just do what they want in spite of the judiciary, then we have a problem.

In this instance it appears that the administration is really pushing the legal envelope. But this is not new.

Pen and a phone baby!

And if we continue down this road, one where the rule of law, one of the fundamental tenets of American identity is tossed aside, how long until this country no longer becomes a destination for people seeking a better life?

Who created ISIS? American “friends and allies.” Gen Wesley Clark says it’s like “Frankenstein.” (Video)

These “friends and allies” supported (support?) ISIS because they are a Suni counter to Hezbollah, the Shiite army controlled by Iran.

So now we have to go in and spill American blood because the nutbar brush fire got out of hand? (And by extension help Iran and Hezbollah?) We’ve spilled enough blood for very questionable reasons in the Middle East.

By the way, if you want to read an absolutely fantastic article on the radical Islamic group Clark says our “friends” enabled I suggest What ISIS Really Wants in The Atlantic.

Sharyl Attkisson: Top 10 Astroturfers

I don’t totally agree with everything Ms. Attkisson says here, but I almost totally do. I liked that in the “honorable mention” section she listed; “Republicans making us believe Jeb Bush is strongly favored as the next Republican candidate for president.” That one made me laugh.

50 Million Down The Tubes: How 17 Conservative PACs Are Spending Their Money (Reported by a conservative publication)

In 2013 we posted a speech given by firebrand political strategist Pat Caddell who argued that many of the political consultants during the Romney campaign were interested more in lining their pockets than in getting the former governor elected president. (I personally don’t think it made much of a difference, but who knows.)  The attached article seems to confirm that this sort of thing continues as the GOP gears up for the 2016 election.

This isn’t some hit piece. It comes from a website, Right Wing News, with legit conservative credibility. And for some groups the report is pretty damning.
