UPDATED -- House Democratic Caucus server was faked
This seems... bad.
The Daily Caller reports on a memo from Congress’s top law enforcement official, Sergeant-at-Arms Paul Irving, and Chief Administrative Officer Phil Kiko that identified Imran Awan and his family as "an ongoing and serious risk to the House of Representatives."
Multiple sources connected to the investigation told TheDCNF that shortly after an IG report came out identifying the House Democratic Caucus server as key evidence in a criminal probe, the evidence was stolen.
“They [the Awans] deliberately turned over a fake server” to falsify evidence, one official close to the CHA alleged. “It was a breach. The data was completely out of [members’] possession.”
Imran Awan was the IT services administrator for more than three dozen Democratic members of Congress, and the FBI arrested him last July on bank fraud charges.
UPDATE: But then...
Happy Independence Day!
Today, I came across this piece from national treasure Walter E. Williams. He wrote it a month ago, but I had not seen it. Williams writes about the growing comfort that millennials have with socialism, and how we need to be better at defending free market capitalism as a morally superior system.
Free market capitalism is disfavored by many Americans—and threatened—not because of its failure but, ironically, because of its success. Free market capitalism in America has been so successful in eliminating the traditional problems of mankind—such as disease, pestilence, hunger, and gross poverty—that all other human problems appear both unbearable and inexcusable.
The desire by many Americans to eliminate these so-called unbearable and inexcusable problems has led to the call for socialism. That call includes equality of income, sex, and race balance; affordable housing and medical care; orderly markets; and many other socialistic ideas.
Not only is there the massive death toll of socialist regimes to take into account, but also the very principles upon which America is founded:
All of us own ourselves. I am my private property, and you are yours. Murder, rape, theft, and the initiation of violence are immoral because they violate self-ownership. Similarly, the forcible use of one person to serve the purposes of another person, for any reason, is immoral because it violates self-ownership.
Meanwhile, The Federalist has a list of the 15 best films to celebrate America. You can see it here.
But, wait! There's more!
