Wisconsin John Doe investigation targeted top conservative judges

Wall Street JournalThe GAB and prosecutors tried to rig [Wisconsin] Supreme Court review of a constitutional challenge to their probe. They used information they had collected through kitchen-sink subpoenas to search for information well outside their already voluminous writ. Then they targeted conservative justices while giving liberals a pass. The good news is that in July Wisconsin’s Supreme Court shut down their investigation as unconstitutional.

They tried to force State Supreme Court justices hearing cases challenging their illegal and abusive investigations to recuse themselves. That's basically rigging the court system.

Elizabeth Price FoleyDrip, drip, drip. There’s much more partisan nastiness going on in Wisconsin than has thus far been revealed. Mr. Kennedy, his accomplices on the GAB staff, and the prosecutors involved in this cabal should lose their jobs for their blatant, partisan abuse of government power.

They should go to jail for civil rights violations.

Suppressing the political opposition at the IRS is alive and well

Gateway PunditVeterans for a Strong America raised money after selling tickets for up to $1,000 a piece to see Trump speak aboard a retired US battleship. The Obama IRS acted in less then 2 days after the speech. Amazing how fast the IRS can move when they want to.Meanwhile, numerous conservative groups are still waiting for their tax exempt status.

Obama figures he can get away with it, so he'll keep doing it. And he certainly seems to be correct in that no one is willing to actually stop him.

Sometimes I hate being right

SlashdotAccording to private security firm CrowdStrike's founder, Dmitri Alperovitch, the Chinese are compiling a massive 'Facebook' like database on American federal government employees for use in espionage and blackmail. The data was stolen from high profile attacks against the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, as well as intrusions into the Anthem and CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield health insurance networks. "That can now be used to embarrass you publicly and force you to work for the Chinese government," Alperovitch says. "It's, in effect, a private version of Facebook with much more detail about your life than even Facebook has that the Chinese now have access to."

Sometimes I hate being right.

Missing the obvious

Irons in the Fire (quoting someone else)“I don’t know anyone who is a Donald Trump supporter. I don’t know anyone who knows anyone who is a Donald Trump supporter. They are like this huge mystery group,” the CEO said.

Aside from the obvious thing with a very similar quote about Nixon's election, there's something else going on here. And that is simply this: do you expect people who support trump to be open about it? We've had the IRS targeting people in opposition groups (ie, the Tea Party) for 6 years now. Other government agencies have been involved in other cases. Individuals have been audited and had their private financial affairs exposed publicly for simply asking questions of a candidate at a meeting the candidate set up. The Republican Party leadership has openly stated things like "We will destroy the Tea Party." That is evidence of a bipartisan conspiracy by those in power against those they should be representing.

And in that political environment, you wonder why people are reluctant to come out in support Trump without the protection of some sort of anonymity, whether an online pseudonym or a pollster who will presumably anonymize their published results?

Of course anyone who moves in Left circles won't dare announce that they like him.

If he wins, some of them might admit voting for Trump, but not until then.

Socialist Bernie proposes doubling the national debt

InstapunditSen. Bernie Sanders, whose liberal call to action has propelled his long-shot presidential campaign, is proposing an array of new programs that would amount to the largest peacetime expansion of government in modern American history.

In all, he backs at least $18 trillion in new spending over a decade, according to a tally by The Wall Street Journal, a sum that alarms conservatives and gives even many Democrats pause. Mr. Sanders sees the money as going to essential government services at a time of increasing strain on the middle class.

We have $18 trillion in debt now, and Bernie wants to spend as much again. Is he nuts? Where does he think the money will come from?

In his defense, though, Obama has already doubled the national debt, and it's worked out pretty well for him. Unfortunately, accumulating debt is one of those things that seems relatively simple and painless, until you wake up one morning and apply for more debt to pay off your old debts, and the bank says "No, you may not have any more money." And then everything goes to hell.

Ben Carson disqualifies himself on immigration

Hot AirBut let’s say we get [the borders] sealed, because certainly in a Carson administration that would be done within the first year. You also turn off the spigot that dispenses the goodies, so that people don’t have any incentive to come here. Then those who are here, we have to recognize that we can’t just round them up, but we can give them an opportunity to register. I would give them a six-month period. If they register, and if they have a pristine record, they haven’t been causing problems, I would give them an opportunity to become guest workers — not citizens, not voting people, not people who get goodies. I think that would be a fair way to do it. In terms of them becoming citizens later on down the road if they’ve done things the right way, we the American people will decide what the criteria for that ought to be.

This won't fly, Ben. Americans aren't fond of having second-class citizens, which that broad a "guest worker" program without voting rights or welfare entitlements but paying taxes would be. Further, many people would prefer to remain illegal rather than become legitimate workers that have to pay taxes, because much of the illegal labor is based on wages that come under the table to avoid the tax man and without that tax-free status, the job would not exist at all. It simply is not worth the taxes and the paperwork to hire someone legitimately to do a job that pages less than minimum wage even before you take out the taxes.

For those illegals who managed to land a better level of professional job, allowing them to stay as "guest workers" does nothing to reduce the damage to the job market. The tech industry is already suffering after a decade of wage stagnation due to abuse of the H1-B system of legal guest workers.

The fact is, "you can stay and become legal" is amnesty, whether the people can vote or not. And while that deal might have sounded good when the Democrats presented it to Reagen, we've learned since then that promises to secure the border will never be carried out.

Another reason to run Linux

Ars TechnicaYou might be in the process of acquiring Windows 10—whether you want the free upgrade or not. Microsoft has confirmed that it is “helping upgradable devices get ready for Windows 10 by downloading the files they need” in the event that owners decide to migrate to the new OS, even if they have heretofore passed up on "reserving" their free upgrade from Windows 7 or 8.

I want nothing to do with Windows 10, but I have a lot of games that like Windows 7 just fine. If you run windows you pretty much need to have automatic updates turned on to avoid getting eaten alive by viruses. But I do not feel the need to "upgrade" to an operating system that is basically a giant piece of spyware itself.

But Microsoft cannot respect my choice to avoid Windows 10. Instead they are intent on eating up several gigabytes of disk space without my consent on my own damn computer.

I run Linux because I want to be in control of my computer's actions.

There is a procedure for removing the unwanted Windows 10 install crap.

House challenge to Obamacare spending succeeds

Elizabeth Price Foley at InstapunditBREAKING: Judge Rosemary Collyer of the Federal District Court for the District of Columbia has just ruled that the House of Representatives has standing to sue President Obama, challenging the constitutionality of the executive branch’s decision to spend billions of unappropriated dollars to support Obamacare. Judge Collyer denied legislative standing to pursue the House’s claim that President Obama has disregarded the 2014 effective date of Obamacare’s employer mandate. More updates will follow once I’ve had a chance to digest Judge Collyer’s opinion.

I really want to get excited about this, but I know the Roberts court will kowtow to Obama again, so why bother? Even if the House wins the case, all that will be blocked are repayments for insurance policy risk corridors that have already been made. Will the courts claw the money back from insurers? Will they go out of business? Unlikely. They might raise prices, which would just feed the demand for single-payer from people who don't want to pay for their own health care.

States still oppressing political opponents via tax rules

American ThinkerA friend-of-the-court brief filed by 58 organizations this week asks the Supreme Court to hear the case Center for Competitive Politics v. Kamala Harris, Attorney General of California. The brief describes how Ms. Harris is violating the First Amendment protections of private association described in the 1958 landmark decision NAACP v. California, where the Alabama attorney general sought the names and addresses of NAACP members to stifle the civil rights movement.... The brief describes how Ms. Harris is using extortionate demands to intimidate and censor nonprofit advocacy organizations and charities by requiring they file with her a confidential tax return schedule showing their top donors. Those demands are worse than what the Alabama attorney general tried because they violate federal law protecting confidential tax return information. The New York attorney general is doing the same as Ms. Harris.

The Democrats want donor lists so they can target political opponents personally. It is very difficult for a single individual to stand up to a coordinated attack from the left's media-driven criticism mobs. The targets are isolated, publicly humiliated, and financially destroyed until they apologize and switch sides. And since the attack is directed at a specific individual, it's harder for others to leap to their defense.

Bond, James Bomb

TelegraphHorowitz, the writer of new Bond novel Trigger Mortis, said he had worked carefully to preserve Ian Fleming’s original character and ensuring his 1950s attitudes remained in tact.

But he has introduced a cast of new characters to point out the error of his chauvinistic ways, including messages about smoking causing cancer, women who give him a run for his money, and an “outspoken” gay friend.

In my childhood, I was a fan of the admittedly and deliberately masculine and borderline psychotic James Bond as penned by Ian Fleming and the similarly-scripted character placed in far more absurd situations on the silver screen. When Fleming passed, the authors who tried to carry his torch failed to hold my attention, but the movies did a reasonably enjoyable, if somewhat incoherent, job of keeping the flame alive. I was initially a fan of the reboot; Casino Royale was excellently amoral. Later movies did not live up to the initial promise, but remained entertaining, even as the actor's anti-gun BS dampened any enthusiasm I might have felt for the franchise.

But with the above, I think I'm done. A Bond tied down and nagged to death by a girlfriend (and remember, in-canon, the foundation for his inability to commit is the death of his wife!), surrounded by anti-smoking messages and friends nagging him about not being gay-friendly enough, is not a Bond that can express the things that fans want him to express so that they can, vicariously, share the experience through fantasy. Or to put it another way, a henpecked Bond is not a fun Bond.

When this stunning bit of social-justice-warrior entryism fails to keep fans who have followed the franchise for decades coming back to see and read the latest adventures of the pathetic pussy-whipped ex-icon, they'll probably claim the character was old, outdated, out of touch, and that modern people just aren't interested anymore.

Someone is wrong on the Internet

Darths and Droids Changing career paths has been a feature of roleplaying games ever since the days of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, with its mechanic for dual-classing. Essentially, you could begin your adventuring career as, say, a fighter, and then after gaining a few levels you could - if you had the requisite ability scores - switch to being a magic-user, or a thief, or whatever. The benefit is that you have the skills you learnt before switching, plus you pick up a bunch of new skills related to your newfound profession. The drawback is that you have to start again from scratch, learning the new skills at a low level.

Anyway, you can extend this sort of thing to any game you are playing. If someone is sick of being a pilot or a journalist or whatever, they don't need to retire and bring in a new character. You can simply have them switch career paths and start learning something new. It's realistic, and you get to muck about with someone at clueless newbie level in your current adventuring group!

twitchDual Classingtwitch. Multiclassing is something else and has been around since the red box.

Not really very shocking anymore...

The Post and CourierThe exhaustive report by the Senate Finance Committee found no evidence that the crackdown was directed by any outside authority. But Lois Lerner is reported to have expressed views hostile to conservatives and favorable to the Democratic Party and the labor movement.

The above is definitely underselling the case. We don't have any proof of involvement by the White House because:

1) Lois Lerner and about 20 of her closest friends and colleagues had their emails and other computer records deleted, scratched, shredded, recycled, degaussed, destroyed, and lost.

2) Lois Lerner twice pled the 5th amendment before Congress on this matter.

3) The White House is refusing to release records of requests for taxpayer information made under Presidential signature, though a judge has recently ordered this information to be released.

4) The FBI is sitting on its investigation. The DC DA has already declined to prosecute Lerner, which he announced on his last day before retiring.

5) The inspector generals normally responsible for investigating corruption have had their investigative authority castrated under Obama, to the point that they have sought legislation from Congress to remedy the restrictions.

Another absurd background check proposal

The FederalistThe legislative text of the proposed bill releases the criminal liability only if the seller “has taken reasonable steps to determine that the recipient is not legally barred from possessing firearms.” However, the most reasonable step available — conducting a background check via the same system used by FFLs — is not available to any private individuals.

Kaine’s gun control proposal is akin to an anti-speeding law that for some reason prohibited drivers from using speedometers to gauge their speeds.

These people seem to think that if they can write a clever enough bill, we won't notice what it does. The truth is, at this point we don't care what it does. We know they are lying, and we aren't going to trust any of them.

Boehner to resign in October

The HillHouse Speaker John Boehner told GOP lawmakers on Friday he will resign at the end of October, capping a tumultuous four-and-half-year reign in which he repeatedly clashed with unruly conservatives in his own party.

He's resigning because he knows he would lose a vote of confidence in the House soon, and it's better to fall on your own sword than be forced out. It's easier to sell your ability to lobby effectively if you leave voluntarily and put a good spin on it. And, of course, he's already been paid for whatever ends up in the continuing resolution we're going to get instead of a budget again this year, so he can't step down until that passes. (I wonder if the House Republicans have the balls to shut down the government until after Boehner steps down and negotiate then?)

And on another topic: "unruly conservatives"? That constitutes both a clear demonstration of biased reporting AND an admission the Boehner was not a conservative. In truth, he was at best a middle-of-the-road type who cared for little beyond maintaining his own power. And he's likely going to be replaced by someone in the same mold, who takes their marching orders from the same people.

This should be a chance for the party leadership to realign itself with their voters, but it's more likely they will simply move another pawn into his place and continue business as usual.

Proof Hillary conspired to evade FOIA law

Sharyl AttkissonThe newly-released batch of Hillary Clinton emails provides further proof that Freedom of Information (FOI) law has been blatantly violated. The documents include material directly responsive to a FOI request I made back in 2012 after the Benghazi terrorist attacks on the U.S. compounds. However, the material was not produced at the time, as required by law. Once again, there appears to be nobody who holds government officials and agencies accountable for their routine violation of this law. So the infractions occur frequently and with impunity. If nobody polices our government officials and agencies–if they are above the law–then how does a lawful society function?

It doesn't; that's the point.

The irony is strong in this one

George RR MartinI have seen some hopeful signs on that front in some of the Hugo round-ups I've read. Puppies and Puppy sympathizers using terms like Fan (with a capital), or trufan, or anti-Puppy, all of which I am fine with. I am not fine with CHORF, ASP, Puppy-kicker, Morlock, SJW, Social Justice Bully, and some of the other stupid, offensive labels that some Pups (please note, I said SOME) have repeatedly used for describe their opponents since this whole thing began. I am REALLY not fine with the loonies on the Puppy side who find even those insults too mild, and prefer to call us Marxists, Maoists, feminazis, Nazis, Christ-hating Sodomites, and the like. There have been some truly insane analogies coming from the kennels too -- comparisons to World War II, to the Nazi death camps, to ethnic cleansing. Guy, come on, cool down. WE ARE ARGUING ABOUT A LITERARY AWARD THAT BEGAN AS AN OLDSMOBILE HOOD ORNAMENT. Even getting voted below No Award is NOT the same as being put on a train to Auschwitz, and when you type shit like that, well...

He's talking about the Hugo awards puppy controversy, and he's simultaneously demonstrating an utter lack of self-awareness. Because I haven't seen any of the Puppies, sad or rabid, describing anyone as Nazis; however.

Mad Genius Club quoting Irene Gallo“Extreme right-wing to Neo-Nazi groups, called the Sad Puppies and the Rabid Puppies… they are unrepentantly racist, misogynist and homophobic. A noisy few but they’ve been able to gather some Gamergate folks around them and elect a slate of bad-to-reprehensible works on this year’s Hugo Ballot.”

That's the only time I'm aware of that accusations of Naziism have been thrown around, and note well that Gallo is in a position of some power and influence at a major publisher of science fiction and fantasy. While, no doubt, some random person on the internet who considers him or herself a puppy supporter can be found to have said similarly intemperate things, prominence does matter.

So, George, call out your own side rather than trying to lump the bad acts of your friends onto your enemies.

As for the other terms. I'm not going to play social justice warrior terminology games. Just not. I'll call them as I see them, and I will describe someone whose self-image involves fighting for social justice as a social justice warrior, and if they are bullying people in the process, I'll use that term. If they are a Maoist, a communist, a socialist, I will use those terms as well, and I will be the judge of whether they fit appropriately or not, because I won't submit to tone policing. I write what I think and to hell with being told to shut up.

Stop kicking puppies, George. It makes you look like a bully.

No such thing as voter fraud?

PJ MediaThe Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) has put 141 counties on notice across the United States that they have more registered voters than people alive. PILF has sent 141 statutory notice letters to county election officials in 21 states. The letters are a prerequisite to bringing a lawsuit against those counties under Section 8 of the federal National Voter Registration Act (NVRA).

It would be very interesting to find out if any of those dead people voted after they died, and for which party.

Obama adds transgender care to health regulations

Gateway PunditThe Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced a planned new regulation Thursday that will require health insurers participating in Obamacare to cover more health procedures sought by the transgendered.

Keep in mind what's going on here.

Rather than asking Congress to pass a law to provide government funding for transgender medical procedures, which the Constitution requires originate from Congress, Obama is doing things differently. He's having his HHS department issue regulations requiring insurance companies to add these measures to all of their policies -- measures needed by a tiny fraction of the population. So everyone with a medical insurance policy is going to pay for these procedures now, without any opportunity to decline or even vote through their representatives. They will pay in the price of their medical insurance going up, and they will pay again when those insurance companies come to the government to make up the money they are losing on Obamacare. (Yes, there is a provision in Obamacare allowing for "reimbursement" of financial risks).

I have nothing against people who are confused about their gender, but I think that the problem is that they are confused about their gender, not that they need expensive and publicly funded cosmetic surgery to make their physical body match their mental self-image. If they really feel they need that surgery, they can pay for it themselves; I have no objection to that.

I do object to being required to pay for such treatment, however indirectly, and I object to the end-run around appropriate Constitutional process.

Invasion, not immigration

Gateway PunditLa Raza–which endorsed Rubio’s signature legislation, the Senate Gang of Eight immigration bill–has advocated for a trio of policies that includes permanent toleration for illegal immigration, citizenship for illegal immigrants already residing in country, as well as substantial increases to the annual levels of immigration established by the federal government through green card allotments...

La Raza’s rebuke of Trump comes on the heels of a new census data report authored by the nonpartisan Center for Immigration Studies. The report found that “immigrant households use welfare at significantly higher rates than native households,” with more than half of U.S. immigrants on welfare.

If the American economy was humming along at full employment, desperate for unskilled (but trainable) workers to manufacture goods, people who were willing to work hard to become Americans, then high levels of immigration would make sense. Historically, that has been the condition of America: lots of room, lots of economic growth, and little in the way of a safety net for people to relax in.

Lerner had third secret email account

Legal Insurrection“It is disturbing that the Obama administration’s explanations to a federal judge about Lois Lerner’s emails become inoperative after only one week. Last week, the court was told that that Lois Lerner had a second alias email account under the name “Toby Miles”. This week the court is told that the “Toby Miles” account isn’t a separate account but that that there still is a second Lerner account, address unrevealed, with IRS-related emails. This game of cat and mouse shows that both the Obama IRS and Justice Department continue with their contempt for Judge Sullivan’s orders that Ms. Lerner’s emails about this scandal be disclosed as the law requires.”

The interesting thing here is that the IRS is reporting each of these things like it is discovering them for the very first time. Yet Congress has been looking for Lerner emails for years now. Either the people providing those emails to Congress are entirely separate from (and not talking to) the people searching for Lerner emails via the Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit, or the IRS failed to discover these materials in prior searches.

Regardless, now that the IRS has learned it can destroy criminal evidence while that evidence is under Congressional subpoena without legal consequences, we can be pretty sure they will provide nothing damaging. Whether it exists or not.

Friendly fire ain't

CNN“There are a lot of donors out there who see it as much too dangerous, obviously, for the candidates, or their allied super PACs, to go after Trump,” said Reston. “So they’re looking to more establishment PACs to potentially take him down in post-Labor Day ads.”

There's no such thing as friendly fire. If someone is shooting at you, react appropriately. If they are buying attack ads against the person leading the Republican primary field because he is so popular they are afraid to have their candidates challenge him directly, consider the possibility that they are not your friends.

Daily CallerIn his “Introduction to Multicultural Literature,” for example, professor John Streamas informs students in his syllabus that he expects white students who want “to do well in this class” to “reflect” their “grasp of history and social relations” by “deferring to the experiences of people of color.”

I'm glad we're clear on who has privilege in that particular classroom.

And I can't think of a better way to raise the racial consciousness of hundreds of college students proceeding through that man's classroom.

Not precisely in the intended manner, though, unless he's trying to create a new generation of racists.

Read the whole thing to see what racial epithets the professor thinks can be appropriately directed at the white underclass.

The courts will not save us

Ars TechnicaThe first major judicial ruling slamming the NSA's bulk collection of phone records has been overturned. In 2013, US District Judge Richard Leon ruled the program was likely unconstitutional, but held off on shutting it down until an appeals court could weigh in.

That's finally happened, and the appeals ruling (PDF) shows the three-judge panel didn't see things the same way as Leon.

3-0 ruling, with opinions claiming that the government can regulate "what the citizen may know". Which is utter nonsense.

Good recommendations for improving the police

InstapunditSecond, if you really want to improve policing (1) abolish official immunity; (2) require insurance for all police; (3) give people a choice of who polices their neighborhoods. That won’t happen, though, because it’s bad for public employee unions and it doesn’t make for appealing slogans designed to drive black voter turnout in November of 2016.

I'll call out point 3 as the most important. Right now we have the illusion of choice; we can vote on local and state law enforcement officials, or the politicians who appoint them. But usually that's not a very granular system, so abuses at the state level can't be addressed locally, and even if you vote out the county sheriff, you're not voting out the local police -- you'll likely get a new sheriff and most of the old police with a new boss. The new boss will have similar self-interest to the old boss and will likely end up in similar policies, given the incentive structure.

If we could actually have competing bids for law enforcement services by different companies, changing the law enforcement service you hired would actually mean something. It might mean the difference between a polite knock on your door and a 3am SWAT raid that shoots your dog, grenades your kid, and sends you to prison based on planted evidence.
