Obama Finally Appoints IP Czar... Puts It In The Wrong Department

via Techdirt by Michael Masnick on 9/25/09

In a move that surprises no one, the Obama administration finally got around to officially nominating Victoria Espinel to be the IP Czar, a position that was created out of thin air a year ago in the ProIP Act, though the position went entirely unfilled until now. Hollywood lobbyists have been pushing the administration to appoint someone ever since the spring, and VP Joe Biden had to come out and calm Hollywood execs and lawyers by promising them the "right person" would be appointed (meaning: not someone who is interested in copyright reform).

And yet... there was no appointment for so long. Why? Well, a few weeks ago, it was explained that there was a fight over where to put the position and under what group Espinel's office would exist. The most obvious group was the Office of Science and Technology Policy. The problem? Most of the folks in OSTP actually seem to understand the problems of copyright law. They're fans of openness and understand things like Creative Commons. Entertainment industry lobbyists started to freak out again, that even if they got someone on "their side," that placing them in OSTP would stifle them, as the rest of the group might (gasp!) actually push back on attempts to stretch copyright enforcement towards the maximalist position. Instead, they wanted the position to be either its own office (entirely unlikely) or, in the Office of Management & Budget. Why OMB? No good reason. The position doesn't fit there at all... but putting it there keeps it away from those darn "copyleftists" in OSTP.

So where did the position end up? Yup... it's a part of OMB, just like Hollywood wanted. Lobbyists on all sides of the equation -- including consumer advocacy group Public Knowledge, though, are saying that Espinel is a good appointee. I certainly hope so, though I disagree that the position should exist at all. Also, Espinel was formerly the IP boss for the US Trade Representative -- a group that has been known to push for more draconian IP laws, and to do so cloaked in secrecy. So... I'm hoping to be surprised, but putting the office in OMB and having someone from USTR isn't encouraging.

Bachmann Lies: ACORN Trafficking in Underage Immigrants

via digg / prietoj / friends by ForumDriv on 9/25/09

In calling for a congressional investigation of ACORN, Rep. Michele Bachmann yesterday said "we have seen" that the poverty and housing group has been involved with "furthering the trafficking of illegal aliens, minor girls into childhood prostitution and child abuse." But Bachmann's confused — or willfully distorting the facts.

Obama takes the supplication of America to a disgusting new level

 
 

Sent to you by John via Google Reader:

 
 

via Power Line by Paul on 9/23/09

Conservative commentary on President Obama's U.N. speech has correctly taken note of the extent to which Obama once again has apologized for America. What struck me as new, though, was extent to which he begged his audience to award the U.S. brownie points for his good acts. The one form of supplication follows from the other. Obama isn't just saying that the U.S. has been a bad boy in the past; he's also saying that we're a good boy now:

We know the future will be forged by deeds and not simply words. Speeches alone will not solve our problems -- it will take persistent action. For those who question the character and cause of my nation, I ask you to look at the concrete actions we have taken in just nine months.

Obama then listed a series of decisions that he hoped might placate the assembled thugs, dictators, and hypcrites -- a crowd from which he feels compelled to seek approval on behalf of the United States. Obama noted that he has banned torture, closed Gitmo, moved to end the war in Iraq, moved towards disarmament, attempted to advance the ball on creating a Palestinian state, "re-engaged the United Nations, paid our bills, joined the Human Rights Council."

So here was the president of the United States doing everything but getting down on his hands and knees before the representatives of every wretched regime in the world to plead that the U.S. has turned over a new leaf and, in effect, become harmelss.

Does Obama believe that anything positive will come of this stomach-turning spectacle. Or does he just like to bask in the glow of applause for the proposition that the U.S. was a pretty rotten place until he assumed control, without worrying about who it is that's applauding?

Castro to Obama, right on

President Obama has received high marks from Fidel Castro for his U.N. speech of yesterday. Castro was impressed that by Obama's admission of past errors by the U.S. with respect to climate change issues. "It would only be fair to recognize that no other United States president would have had the courage to say what he said," Castro gushed.



Castro is wrong. Modern Democratic presidents are quite prone to admit errors, real and imagined, committed by their predecessors. What it is that's "courageous" about such statements remains unclear.



Still, with Obama's foreign policy being widely panned, and playing out so poorly in key areas of the world, Obama will perhaps take comfort from the fact that one veteran practitioner, albeit from a backwater, has praised him.

Oops! Egypt Learns Why Killing All Its Pigs Was a Dumb Idea

So, the government in Egypt decided a while back that it should kill all the pigs in the country. You know, to stop the dreaded Swine Flu. On the surface, this was an unbelievably stupid idea. But it turns out, it was even dumber than first thought -- because those pigs were eating Egypt's garbage. Now they've run out of places to put the stuff.

THIS RACISM MUST END!!!

THIS RACISM MUST END!!!

Jimmah Carter had better step up to the plate again to denounce yet
another despicable act of racism!


I've had enough, I tell you!


The latest instance involves telling a sitting governor to get out of
the race for re-election, just because he's black! Not because he's
inept, mind you, which he is, but because of the color of his skin.


Black Governor by Default David Patterson has been told, not asked,
to drop out, allegedly because he can't win.


But Jimmah and I know the real reason. It's not incompetence nor the
content of Patterson's character nor his incessant bumbling nor
because he's legally blind, although he's also being discriminated
against because of that last factor.


Patterson knew this was coming. The New York Daily News reported on
August 21st that he "blamed a racist media . . . for trying to push
him out of next year's election." More specifically, he added, "The
whole idea is to get me not to run in the primary:" http://bit.ly/
17pgdE.


Now it's happened. Transparent racists want him out and used Rep.
Gregory Meeks of Queens, N.Y. to deliver the bad news to Patterson: http://bit.ly/45P45Q
.


Incidentally, Meeks is black and Patterson's marching orders came from
black president Barack Obama.


Jimmah, stop eating those peanuts! Where are ya when we really need
ya? At least try to get Patterson a job in Washington as Obama's
Peanut Czar, you jackass!
