(FoxNews) “The spy center” — that’s what some of the locals like Jasmine Widmer, who works at Bluffdale’s sandwich shop, told our Fox News team as part of an eight month investigation into data collection and privacy rights that will be broadcast Sunday at 9 p.m. ET called “Fox News Reporting: Your Secrets Out.”
The NSA says the Utah Data Center is a facility for the intelligence community that will have a major focus on cyber security. The agency will neither confirm nor deny specifics. Some published reports suggest it could hold 5 zettabytes of data. (Just one zettabyte is the equivalent of about 62 billion stacked iPhones 5′s– that stretches past the moon.
ne man we hoped would answer our questions, the current director of the NSA General Keith Alexander, declined Fox News’s requests to sit down for an interview, so we stopped by the offices of a Washington think tank, where Alexander was speaking at a cyber security event last year.
(FloppingAces.net) Einstein is proven right again. Not, not relativity.
Not the grand theory. Insanity.
Einstein once defined insanity as…
Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
Barack Obama is no stranger to hypocrisy and he clearly knows how stupid his base is. He knows they won’t remember anything he says from one day to the next. They certainly won’t remember what he said last year, so Obama zombies, pay attention.
Last year the Obama regime basically extorted a settlement from large banks in a mortgage deal. As noted by Investors, Obama blamed everyone except for the real culprits.
(HumanEvents.com) You might not know it from the acrimonious political debate on cable and broadcast TV, or on talk radio, or on websites and blogs. But here’s a counterintuitive observation: Amidst all the negativism out there, I believe optimism is in the air.
That’s right. Optimism.
Sometimes you have to search for it, or read it in the fine print. But I believe the political economy is getting better, not worse.
Let me make a few points to defend what most folks believe is an indefensible position.
(Breitbart.com) On Monday, RNC Chair Reince Priebus, in a much-anticipated appearance at the National Press Club, will lay out a blueprint of reforms to make the GOP more competitive. The goal is to correct a number of missteps that cost the party a number of close elections last November. Breitbart News has learned, exclusively, that the RNC plans to revamp its political education efforts and put a renewed emphasis on direct training of activists around the country.
In the 1990s, a Republican organization, GOPAC, ran a very successful training and education program. Using the technology of the time, it distributed tens of thousands of audio cassettes to candidates and activists throughout the country. priebus-gavel-afp-THUMBThe materials provided issue education, as well as tips and tactics for successful campaigns. The new RNC effort to be announced Monday is, in many ways, a return to these roots.
“In order prepare for 2014, 2016 and beyond the RNC needs to lead the way in training our candidates and activists with the tools and techniques they need to win,” Sean Spicer, Communications Director for the RNC, told Breitbart News. “Utilizing both in person and online classes, we will ensure we have people from coast to coast training in the key areas of campaigns.”
(FloppingAces.net) Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), on Sunday’s (February 10, 2013) Meet The Press, told host David Gregory, “David, sequestration was designed as a budget threat, not as a budget strategy.” That is certainly a shocker, a Democrat telling the truth. Durbin continued, “And, I think all of us understand that if it goes forward in less than three weeks it’s going to have a dramatic negative impact on several agencies.” That is an understatement, to say the least. Sequestration, an Obama administration idea (be sure to read these references), is a result of the budget process of 2011. Sequestration is a mandatory budget cut of $1.2 trillion over ten years, half from domestic (discretionary) programs, half from the defense budget, resulting from the so-called “SuperCommittee’s” inability to agree – on anything.
Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama, in October 2012, said, during a presidential debate, “First of all, the sequester is not something that I’ve proposed. It is something that Congress has proposed. It will not happen.” That was our first hint that sequestration was a threat. And, Obama had the chutzpah to lie about its origin on national TV. As Curt says, Obama has “No Shame.” But, Democrats/liberals/progressives (DLP) and low-information voters believed him. And the lap-dog MSM didn’t call him on it.
