Databases, Dems and Intimidation

Silicon Valley isn’t buying GOP’s data plans


A California investor — with help from Karl Rove — won the highly competitive contest to help build the Republican National Committee’s data platform.

But he’s having trouble winning over Silicon Valley.

Dick Boyce, once a partner at Bain & Co. and the former CEO of J.Crew, launched Liberty Works with the goal of helping Republicans catch up to Democrats in the digital data world.

Liberty Works was hired to create an open-source voter data platform, meaning outside groups and campaigns would have access to the information for outreach and fundraising and also be able to build on it with their own applications. The RNC describes the goal for the shared data as “iPhone-like.”

Since the RNC announcement on May 1, Liberty Works has gotten off to a shaky start. Top engineers in Silicon Valley who have been looking for ways to help Republican campaigns question Boyce’s vision and say the company’s outreach is underwhelming — as are its salary offers.

“At a minimum, they should buy a round or two of drinks before they ask the tech community to get into bed,” said Garrett Johnson, the chief executive of SendHub, an Internet communications firm in Menlo Park.

The big risk for the RNC is that any delay or failure to keep up with the Democrats’ vaunted data operation could hurt their already uphill efforts to win the Senate next year and further cement the GOP’s reputation as behind the times in the digital data world.

So they label it “an already uphill battle to take back the Senate”. But of course, I see no criticisms or singling out individuals from the left about Obama’s massive, even secretive, database operation. All that matters is the Republicans building one — and the more scrutiny they can give it the better.

I expect to hear some statements soon from Obama or his top operatives. Next comes the intimidation campaign

Not buying Republicans’ plans? What a crock. But what is next for Obama, send some goons to intimidate and attack anyone working with Repulicans? Let’s see, the IRS may be a little busy and indisposed right now. Have no fear, they’ll find a Chicago way.

From Breitbart February 6, 2013.


“It’s very powerful what [Obama’s] leaving in place.”

See Breitbart video

Maxine Waters says:

“The President has put in place an organization with the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life,” Representative Maxine Waters told Roland Martin…. “That’s going to be very, very powerful,” Waters said. “That database will have information about everything on every individual on ways that it’s never been done before and whoever runs for President on the Democratic ticket has to deal with that. They’re going to go down with that database and the concerns of those people because they can’t get around it. And he’s [President Obama] been very smart. It’s very powerful what he’s leaving in place.”

    Biggest problems with this are these two things: 1. Karl Rove. Taking the GOP ever closer to RIP. 2. Silicon Valley. Tell me, how many conservative tech firms are out there? Whatever they do, to ostensibly “help” the GOP, you can bet the farm the democrats WILL know what’s there. Good post,bull.

      Well, Rove is some mad scientist/demon to Dems. There could be a much better face on it than his though. Marxists think they have a lock on the tech industry now. While Obama has every in industry getting in bed with him. Why can’t they wake up?

    Good post Bull. “The President has put in place an organization with the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life,”…well NO SHIT! His Shitcago style gov organizations have stolen any piece of info they want in their normal style of f*ck the law. There was only one Watergate, but there’s already been so many Obamagates the sumbitch could let Hitlery use that good ole phrase in the next election “An Obamagate in everyone’s back yard!” Of course the Repukes will stick to their normal slogan “Another chicken in the legislative branch!…buy I digress.

    Rove had his 15 minutes of fame and did a damn good job way back then IMO, but his days are over. The Repukes need to get rid of that “old white men country club” neon sign on their foreheads (be it reality or not it is the perception).

    And why in the living hell are the Repukes looking for help in Socialist Silicon Sanctuary?? You cut those bastards they bleed liberal yellow. Whoever they get to help them the Demonrats will have THAT info before the Repukes! Hint to the Repuke dipshits…there are other parts of the United States that has great tech organizations. SSS does not have a patent on that’s the only place to create get technology….good Lord….and we sit and wonder why we keep losing elections! The f*cking blind poorly leading the highly disappointed….

      Dave, lost my comment again. It smells like OBama stench all over. Rove has got to go (off the front desk anyway) Anything they do create is subject to Dem espionage like everything else. Libs are like that kid who believes everything is only about them. Marxists will have the info as soon as they do.

      Right No kidding, Maxine, a super duper database. And what do they do with all that data they mine? They have data and records on everyone, except the King. That’s illegal. Scary and it proves again that Dems will use anything and everything for political gain. Its all politics to them. And we never think they will use the medical info the same way? What a bunch of dumb people we have.

      They better get moving, as Maxine said, that word everything is a pretty big commodity.

      Dave, Hitler and Stalin would have loved to have today’s technology.
