Specifically, officials warned that programmers in Belarus, a former Soviet republic closely allied with Russia, were suspected of inserting malicious code that could be used for cyber attacks, according to U.S. officials familiar with the concerns.

Like I´ve said in the past, what is to stop India, China, Pakistan, or other Nationals to put back-doors into software and/or hardware?

Why are US companies and the US government allowing potential enemies to write code for them? Other than the bottom-line?

There are millions of un/under-employed US citizen software engineers ready to go to work. H-1B Visas need to be tightly regulated.

I’m absolutely sure that there are real security concerns about the ObamaCare website. But I’m leery of this story. It sounds like something the media is pushing to catch the attention of the American people, cause an alarm, and then be proven false thereby giving false assurances that the ObamaCare website is safe. But it’s not!

Ain´t it just wonderful that Obama trusts our vital personal medical data to the tender mercies of software writers from what used to be called the Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic?? Self-described Citizen-of-the World Obama isn´t identifiably American in upbringing, education, or philosophy--he´s an alien--and along with him the Democratic Party has moved off the page into some irrationally inclusive realm that seeks to stir what used to be American interests into an internationalist stew that submerges and hides our national identity, and makes American citizens vulnerable to foreign thieves.

Who cares that our medical data has been given to probable hackers? At this point what difference does it make? The damage is done. Whoever is responsible for farming out work with deep national security implications to people outside this country (who don´t share our interests) ought to be tarred and feathered.

We also hire felons to handle our private data. This is a well thought out plan by the enemies of the United States of America to destroy us. It is time to look past the color of the skin and look at the content of the soul. Name just one thing that Obama has done that is for the good of our country. Oh Yeh he got Bin Laden.

But vis-a-vis BO-care? lack of security, lack of protection of personal health information, shoddy attention? care-LESSness when people by the millions have lost the coverage and the doctors they had. Reid keeps his Senate where the sun don´t shine.

At least we´re not stuck in NJ traffic for a few hours, who cares about subcontracting out website code to the last Stalinist dictatorship nation´s government by an 800 million dollar no bid, sole source web design company owned by one of Michelle´s best friends? What could possibly go wrong? When does Justin Bieber make his decision to go to jail or the Marine Corps? Why not think about how we all can help prevent actors who make tens of millions per year from killing themselves with heroin. CNN had a good question; Why do we all let that happen? Why is Gertz such a racist?

Gates: Tax consumption to fix
unemployment caused by technology
The Daily Caller, by Neil Munro    Original Article
Posted By: terry_tr6- 3/18/2014 11:50:16 AM     Post Reply
Billionaire software mogul Bill Gates has joined the growing chorus of tech experts who predict that low-skill Americans will face greater unemployment because more jobs are being done by software and robots. The Microsoft founder, whose net worth is $76 billion, suggested the problem could be fixed by reducing taxes on employers and raising taxes on employees, via the reduction of payroll taxes and the addition of new federal consumption taxes.

Top MIT scientist: Newest UN

Not all scientists are panicking about global warming — one of them finds the alarmism “hilarious.” A top climate scientist from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology lambasted a new report by the UN’s climate bureaucracy that blamed mankind as the main cause of global warming and whitewashed the fact that there has been a hiatus in warming for the last 15 years. “I think that the latest IPCC report has truly sunk to level of hilarious incoherence,” Dr. Richard Lindzen told Climate Depot, a global warming skeptic news site. “They are proclaiming increased confidence in their models

Salinas, Calif. - On a windy morning in California´s Salinas Valley, a tractor pulled a wheeled, metal contraption over rows of budding iceberg lettuce plants. Engineers from Silicon Valley tinkered with the software on a laptop to ensure the machine was eliminating the right leafy buds. The engineers were testing the Lettuce Bot, a machine that can "thin" a field of lettuce in the time it takes about 20 workers to do the job by hand. The thinner is part of a new generation of machines that target the last frontier of agricultural mechanization - fruits and vegetables destined for the fresh market,

Attorney General Eric Holder exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday. In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

Baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron compared Republicans that oppose President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan. Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen.

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

More than a hundred Republican Party elders gathered this weekend in Texas to celebrate George H.W. Bush’s legacy. But many of the event’s participants had another, much simpler agenda: launching a Jeb Bush presidential campaign. The two-day festivities featured a widely covered speech by Jeb. And on the sidelines, former Bush retainers were frank about their hopes that the eldest son could save a party the family has led on and off since 1988. “We have a responsibility to make sure Jeb runs,” said longtime Bush adviser Andy Card after the speech. “If Jeb Bush does not run, shame on us.” Card added,
