A Tale of Two Leakers

When Edward Snowden exposed the NSA's spying, most on the left and some on the right called him a traitor. True, he did expose some foreign spying operations (which should not be a surprise: nations spy on each other all the time: even friendly ones), but he also exposed a major constitutional violation. He has shown that trading liberty for security results in neither.

The news that Hillary Clinton maintained a private email server has been known for a year, but few have really thought about the damage this has done. It certainly proved that the attack on the Benghazi consulate in 2011 was not motivated by a YouTube video. Now news has come out that her emails contain a treasure trove of classified information (seriously pundits? media? this is a surprise to you?), but no one is calling Hillary Clinton a traitor, despite the fact that she is known to be a greedy and power hungry bitch, and has done nothing redeemable.

Two For Tuesday (NSFW)

Obama's Race Database

We recently discussed a story that wasn’t particularly popular here (to be charitable) which dealt with a new White House plan to implement enforced neighborhood diversity in American towns and cities through the power and influence of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The rest of the nation wasn’t exactly pleased with the idea either, but it did raise some interesting questions. One of the biggest among those was the puzzle of exactly how the federal government plans to figure out precisely how many people in each racial pigeonhole are living where and how they are interacting. Is that sort of data even available to be used in making such determinations, assuming you wanted to do it?
The short answer seems to be “no.” The longer – and apparently more accurate – answer is, “not yet.” But never fear, citizens! As Paul Sperry reports for the New York Post, the required data collection is on the way and it’s going to be mind blowing.

The only reason for such a database is to give preferential treatment for certain races, at best. At worst, possibly racial laws, like the N├╝rnberg Laws .
