The Consequences of Legislating Cyberlaw After Terrorist Attacks

In an extension of the article’s logic, and on a slightly more sinister side, the following statement would have been considered outlandish and a movie fiction conspiracy theory to an uninitiate just a little over a year ago: how hard is it for a any interest — political, religious, idealogical, a mix of all,  etc.  group or sub-group — desiring accumulation of power or influence through any means including legislation, surveillance, or social division or unrest it can benefit from, to persuade, collude, coordinate with or ask a foreign power, entity or interest with access to or influence in FTOs or TCOs, to effectuate (catastrophic) events that can facilitate or lead to those outcomes? A lot easier than the 2016 election interference which went on mostly by independent opposing self interests. For free, personal desire, vengeance, a favor or return of one?

Hastily drafted laws passed under pressure tend to create new problems while doing little to counter threats from terrorists and violent extremists.

As part of a recent push to clear their FOIA backlog, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has released 30 pages of new documents on Senator James Eastland, adding to the 521 previously released pages.

What to Make of Bill Barr’s Letter

Skeletally speaking …

Barr’s letter contains good news for the president, but it also raises ominous questions that only Mueller’s report can answer.

25th Amendment Poetry

Seeing DT rhyming and all this poetry, I let my creative juices flow on this President’s day …

0 (Not 25) Fucks Given

There is all this talk about 25th A
We are under attack again
May be history, is on replay
It is that simple, and plain

Russians by Acosta — or by Hannity
There is something to this bark
For sure, the other was — insanity
Since there were none in that park

I feel bad for the Sergeant at Arms dog
When I see all this fuss
He must have traded it — for a hog
That’s the anecdote of Jack Russ
