- The White House is already
apparently ignoring the recommendations of the group it put
together to analyze the operations of the National Security Agency
and will allow the agency to retain control over
U.S. Cyber Command rather than switching to civilian
- As far as the other recommendations go, which have not been
released yet, reports indicate that the panel is pushing for bulk
records collections to continue, but will be
held by third parties or the phone company with tighter
controls on access. Some are
disappointed by the extremely predictable outcome when you ask
for recommendations from former government officials.
- The golden goose is running out of eggs. California voters are
turning against unions in the latest polls.
The White House press corps is starting to get upset over lack
of access to President Barack Obama and is lashing out.
Mike Huckabee may be gearing up for another run for the
president, because “more government” and “social conservatism” are
polling so well right now.
