By Ericka Andersen ~ If you care about freedom and prosperity, you ought to care about cybersecurity. That’s what Heritage’s James Carafano told an audience at the South by Southwest Interactive (SXSW) conference in Austin, Texas, on Sunday. Cybersecurity, a growing issue of concern around the world, was a hot topic at the nation’s most […]
By Jim Kouri, CPP. ~ An international petition with well over 100,000 signatories urging the Norwegian Nobel Committee (NNC) to bestow the coveted Nobel Peace Prize to Pfc. Bradley Manning — recently convicted of several charges related to his stealing classified documents — will be turned over to the NNC in Oslo, Norway, on Monday, […]
A Dry Bones Cartoon ~ We don’t know what’s really going on because we are forced to rely on the media. Maybe the talks with Iran are just a meaningless smoke-screen? What if the war has already started? What if their attempts to build a Doomsday Device are being torpedoed and being taken out by […]
By Paul Rosenzweig Sometimes my friends and colleagues wonder why I fixate on cybersecurity and the Internet. I tell them all the time that it is the single most important and misunderstood problem in the world today, but often I don’t think they understand the scale of the problem. So it was fascinating to see […]
By James Carafano Ph.D. The scene from “Casablanca” says it all. “I’m shocked-shocked to find that gambling is going on in here,” Police Inspector Renault declares. Immediately, the croupier hands the chief inspector his roulette table winnings. Renault’s disingenuousness disclaimer could be the tag line for U.S. cyber security policy. Just last month, the Director […]
By Dean Cheng The much-delayed 2011 Department of Defense (DOD) report on Chinese military and security developments highlights the growing Chinese emphasis on cyber security and cyberwarfare. As the report notes, “PRC military writings highlight the seizure of electromagnetic dominance in the early phases of a campaign.” Coinciding with the release of the DOD report, […]
By James Carafano, PhD Earlier in the week, the media reported the Pentagon’s position that a serious cyber attack might require a military response—to which the only logical response is: You think? Now we have the findings of a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey that 53 percent “of voters agree with this proposed new […]
By James Carafano, PhD According to an article in The Wall Street Journal, “The Pentagon has concluded that computer sabotage coming from another country can constitute an act of war, a finding that for the first time opens the door for the U.S. to respond using traditional military force.” Since the military has been using […]
By James Carafano, PhD Writing in 1995, before anyone in the West thought all that much about war online, Major General Wang Pufeng (the former Director of the Strategy Department at the China’s Academy of Military Sciences) observed, “Our sights must not be fixed on the firepower war of the industrial age. … Rather they […]
By Alan Caruba The one thing that the pundicracy—the columnists, former government and other folk who express themselves in print and broadcast media—have missed about the latest WikiLeaks outrage is that, like the earlier one regarding Afghan military operations, both have been directed solely at the United States of America. Are we really surprised that […]
By Allan Wall “The fact is governments deal with the United States because it’s in their interest, not because they like us, not because they trust us and not because they think we can keep secrets.” Robert Gates, U.S. Secretary of Defense WikiLeaks, a website operated by Julian Assange that publishes leaked material provided by […]
By Alan Caruba In a long career as a journalist, full time and freelance, I have sometimes said that I knew something was seriously wrong with The New York Times when I began to see my byline show up on stories that appeared briefly. It’s been decades since I have held The Times in my […]
By Jim Kouri, CPP. Army Specialist Bradley Manning (pictured) is again making headlines about his role in leaking classified documents to a so-called blogger who has subsequently released tens of thousands of military and diplomatic secrets. Last August, the Law Enforcement Examiner introduced readers to the disgruntled soldier who betrayed his country. The suspect in […]
By Jim Kouri, CPP. President Barack Obama and his national security team are seeking an expansion of the U.S. government’s role in eavesdropping on the Internet including emails, social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, as well as BlackBerries. According to reports, the Obama White House plans to submit a bill after the new […]
With the release of IC3′s 2009 annual report, it’s clear that the need to be aware of cyber scams is more important than ever. During 2009, did you receive an e-mail that claimed to be from the FBI and asked for money or personal information? If you did, you’re not alone—e-mail scams that misused the Bureau’s name […]
Watch the video at the end of this article to see one more example of why when it comes to passing their health care reform bill, nothing is off-limits when it comes to the DNC. Even if it means the destruction of one of our country’s greatest symbols. Even I never thought that people of […]
It’s long been the practice of the Chinese Government to block or shut down any sites it deems a threat to their national security. Soon our government may have the power to do the same thing. Senator Jay Rockefeller has introduced a bill in the Senate giving the President the power to, “may declare a […]
(Today’s article is by a guest author, and it’s a damn shame that the President’s talk to schoolchildren wasn’t addressed instead to America’s teachers.) (Mr. Obama would be performing a greater service addressing topics such as this rather than delivering a political propaganda speech to young kids.) Fifty years after Rudolph Flesch wrote the blockbuster […]
The Obama administration has taken the concept of don’t ask don’t tell to a whole new level. They don’t want you to ask, and even if you dare to do so, they aren’t going to tell. So how does White House press secretary Robert Gibbs explain people receiving e-mails from Obama crony David Axelrod regarding […]
I want you to watch this video very closely, especially the part following the 2.07 mark where Kanjorski starts to say “Listen, I was there …..” Don’t read the text while the video is playing in the background. Watch the video and just listen to what Paul Kanjorski is saying. I’m willing to bet that […]
Maybe it’s something in their DNA that makes them incapable of telling the truth. Watch the stunt they pulled on Glenn Beck before the election: Carl also writes for his own blog at Right Wing Wiz Kid
THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME Apologies to HG Wells who wrote this work of Science Fiction in 1933. It might be Science Fiction, but a lot of things in the book are remarkably close to things that actually have happened. His actual premise has also been loosely translated to the introduction of a form […]
