Confidential House ethics probe gets out

They would love to sweep this under the rug. That is why the report accidentally got out. This was not the press exposing corruption. Capitol Hill is a cesspool.

in reference to:

"A confidential weekly report of the House ethics committee found its way to an Internet site in a case of "cyber-hacking," the committee's chairwoman said Thursday.

The report from last July contains a summary of the committee's work at the time, but Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., the panel's chairwoman, said no inferences should be made about anyone whose name is mentioned.

The committee makes a public announcement when it begins an investigation of potential rule-breaking, which is conducted by an investigative subcommittee whose members also are made public."

Texas law on children seeing porn being challenged

And I thought Texas was a pro-family conservative state. This sounds like the type of issue that comes in liberal places like NY and San Francisco. Showing porn to kids is child abuse.

Reports: Cyberattacks traced to NKorea

Guess where they learned their hacking skills? China.

in reference to:

"The North Korean government was the source of high-profile cyberattacks in July that caused Web outages in South Korea and the United States, news reports said Friday. The IP address—the Web equivalent of a street address or phone number—that triggered the Web attacks was traced back to North Korea's Ministry of Post and Telecommunications, the chief of South Korean's main spy agency reportedly told lawmakers."

US admiral concerned about China military buildup

He's probably the only one concerned. Because there is little concern shown by the government. China is a ever growing threat to America. And just like with Japan just prior to Pearl Harbor, we will wake up too late.

in reference to:

"A U.S. Navy admiral expressed new concern Friday over China's military buildup and urged Beijing to be clearer about its intentions.With China's military growing at an "unprecedented rate" — spending was up almost 15 percent in the 2009 budget — the U.S. wants to ensure that expansion doesn't destabilize the region, Rear Adm. Kevin Donegan told reporters on a visit to the Chinese territory of Hong Kong."When we see a military growing at that rate, we're interested in transparency and the understanding of the uses of that military," said Donegan, commander of the USS George Washington aircraft carrier strike group, a key part of the U.S. Pacific Fleet.Donegan's comments come as a top Chinese general visits the United States on a mission to strengthen trust between the two militaries and dispel U.S. concerns about the growth of the People's Liberation Army."
