Overnight Open Thread (13 Jun 2015)

The NSA can't stop, won't stop.

Now the Obama Administration has asked the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance court to grant permission to restart the program for a 6-month "transition," a move that not only seems particularly unnecessary, but also flies against the spirit of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals' decision that bulk surveillance is illegal.

The Supreme Court in Iowa has affirmed your right to be drunk on your front porch.

Decline Of America's Power

Who's afraid of America? With our current leadership? Not many and that was largely left out in the article. Obama's track record with red lines and focus on the political appearance side appeases our enemies and emboldens them. They don't seem to fear hashtags.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Race

So now the litmus test for what race you are is what you espouse to be "when it matters"? Your genes don't matter.

Cyber Security

I guess this is the administrations response to the cyber attack. This should've been done a long, long time ago and already incorporated into SOP.

Also on Friday, the White House announced a "30-day Cybersecurity Sprint" in which the administration is instructing agencies to take actions such as testing their networks' vulnerabilities, patching weaknesses, restricting the number of privileged user accounts and "dramatically" ramping up the use of so-called multifactor authentication, which goes beyond requiring people to use passwords. In addition, a "Cybersecurity Sprint Team" will engage in a 30-day review of federal cyber efforts.

Only a matter of days before we get a cybersecuirty sprint team czar.

Polar Bears vs Dolphins

Polar bears are eating dolphins. Of course climate change gets blamed but check out this paragraph.

Two virtually ice-free winters enticed the dolphins into the Arctic region, where their food has also showed up thanks to warm water. But a sudden influx of ice trapped the dolphins, making them easy prey for hungry polar bears.

Um no, it wasn't virtually ice free the last two winters in the arctic. Can you say stranded warmists needing rescue the last few years because of, wait for it, ice.
