The first crypto war revolved around the hardware-based Clipper Chip and coercing companies to deploy broken encryption with backdoors to enable domestic State spying. Fortunately, the good guys won.
The next crypto war is still a war of the government against its own citizens but this time enlisting the corporations, including social networks, as direct agents of the State. What some have dubbed Crypto Wars 2.0 manifests itself in the current litany of legislative acronyms designed to confuse and befuddle.
What has gone largely unnoticed in this torrent of analysis, however, is that privacy tools for individuals already exist and they have so for many years! Quietly anticipating encroachment against basic Internet liberties, concerned cyber privacy advocates has been coding and releasing the tools that allow for private electronic communication and private web surfing. Proposed legislation like CISPA may or may not pass and become law, but if it does we have to understand the new landscape. Your privacy is up to you!

This is my call for sanity from all RNC delegates. Please take a pause from your daily grind or whatever it is you may be doing right now and reflect on what made you decide to do the work and invest the time in the Republican party as I have to become a delegate or elector to elect the next President. Unfortunately I did not get elected from the Texas Convention this year. Since you have, what will you do with your opportunity? Was it a career decision or something more?

A recording of the public lecture by Dmitry Orlov on 9 June 2009, at the Davenport Hotel, Dublin, Ireland.
If you haven't heard of Mr. Orlov before give him a listen now. It will be an eye opener as he draws comparisons and highlights differences between the Soviet collapse and the ongoing collapse of the US.

Congressman Paul scolded the Fed Chairman for being “secretive” while claiming that the financial crisis is “far from over.”
Bernanke’s visits to Capitol Hill have recently been marked by his exchanges with Ron Paul, a staunch Fed basher who believes in the merits of the gold standard. After facing a relatively tamer Senate Banking Committee, the Fed Chairman’s feet were held to the fire by Ron Paul & Co.
While the exchange was rather one-sided, Ron Paul made his points heard. He first criticized the Fed for equivocating independence with secrecy, noting that about $15 trillion had been used for overseas bailouts during the crisis, via currency swaps, which the Congress could not monitor.
