Dear Readers: Once again, Silvio Canto and I are thrilled to have Legal Insurrection Editor Mandy Nagy as our Guest. She will be joining us on Thursday, March 20th; click HERE at 7 pm PST/9 pm CT/10 pm EST for live show or afterward for archived podcast).
However, my colleague Barry Jacobsen at Deadliest Blogger will be starting the show with a special FLAMING HOT CAPITALISM ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!!!!
As always, there will be lots of news to cover. We will get an update from Mandy about her quest to obtain Obamacare. News fresh from the Legal Insurrection site:
The former Director of the Office of Research Integrity (ORI), David Wright, recently resigned in powerful fashion, penning a scathing letter to his boss in the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) about the “remarkably dysfunctional HHS bureaucracy.”
The letter, written on February 25th and recently published at sciencemag.org, details the “intensely political environment” that is HHS, the department charged with crafting and implementing Obamacare policy and regulations.
Also, we will chat about the status of the lost Malaysian airliner:
A recent report from the Malaysian newspaper, The New Straits Times, has generated a lot of buzz and fueled speculation that the missing plane may still be in tact, somewhere.
[The report indicated] the plane may have flown low to the ground — 5,000 feet or less — and used mountainous terrain as cover to evade radar detection. The newspaper cited unnamed sources for its reporting, which CNN could not immediately confirm.
However, Malaysian officials said Monday that they were not aware of the report.
“It does not come from us,” said Malaysia Airlines CEO Ahmad Jauhari Yahya.
Experts were skeptical, however, noting that even if the plane did drop to that altitude, it likely would not be able to avoid radar detection.
And we’ll get Mandy’s take on the US giving control of the Intenet to the UN.
The U.S. government’s plan to give away authority over the Internet’s core architecture to the “global Internet community” could endanger the security of both the Internet and the U.S. — and open the door to a global tax on Web use.
“U.S. management of the internet has been exemplary and there is no reason to give this away — especially in return for nothing,” former Bush administration State Department senior advisor Christian Whiton told The Daily Caller. “This is the Obama equivalent of Carter’s decision to give away the Panama Canal — only with possibly much worse consequences.”
The U.S. Commerce Department announced late Friday it would relinquish control of The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) — the organization charged with managing domain names, assigning Internet protocol addresses and other crucial Web functions — after its current contract expires next year.
As always, it will be a great night of Insurrection with Mandy!!!!
