The NSA Should Work To Help Secure The Internet

With the discovery of the Heartbleed bug last week, news quickly came out that the NSA knew about the problem and used it to gain access to computers. But if they knew, then it can easily be believed that other countries knew as well. Maybe they used the bug against our interests.

A Peoria family was met with horror this week as police knocked down their doors, seized their electronic devices and hauled them in for questioning. The reason for such a police action? Apparently one member is behind a fake Twitter account that impersonates the mayor of Peroria, Il. The charges he is facing? False personation of a public official, a Class A misdemeanor in the state. 

The big name 2016 GOP hopefuls apparently don't want to jump into the Cliven Bundy fiasco. The Hill has asked Ted Cruz, Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio for their opinions of the Nevada Rancher's stand off with the government and all three have refused to answer.True how can one say they stand for law and order, when this is a case of someone breaking the law and the right helping him avoid justice?

The whole Bundy ranch saga has kicked the feeble minded right wing trolls into conspiracy overload, through their prophetic leader, Alex Jones. The big claim has been that Harry Reid was behind the BLM seizure to build a solar power plant. Well as Bob Morris points out, there is a problem with that conspiracy. The Bundy ranch is 177 miles from where the proposed site is. Even the far-right has gone as far as to denounce the conspiracy. Still, that hasn't stopped Matt Drudge from still pushing the meme today, linking right to Alex Jones' website. I guess Jones' followers and Fox viewers just don't have the necessary brain power to comprehend a map. 

Rick Perry has joined the list of Republican Governors under legal scrutiny. Perry has retained a high profile defense attorney in a case alleging that he illegal withheld money from a local District Attorney office.
