No More “Opting Out”: TSA Can Now Force You to Go Through Body Scanners

They can’t force you to go through the body scanners if you’re not trying to get on a plane. Some people have completely given up flying so they don’t have to deal with a Nazi-style police state at the airport where everyone is considered a potential terrorist and therefore subject to warrantless searches and seizures. Well, unless you actually look like a terrorist with a bomb strapped to your chest. In that case, searching that person would be racial profiling and constitute discrimination. Read more […]

72 Homeland Security Employees on Terrorist Watch List

If they can land on the terrorist watch list, then I guess anyone can. Next, we’ll find out that President Obama is on it. Does this tell us more about these Homeland Security employees or more about the terrorist watch list itself and how useless it is? Somehow, they ended up on the list, and yet they work allegedly to keep us safe from terrorists. Honestly, I’d believe that terrorists are working undercover as employees for our government, and also that the list is useless. Toddlers have Read more […]

Keep Telling Yourself You Live in a Free Country

“Land of the free, home of the brave” doesn’t apply to the US anymore, but don’t tell that to the brainwashed sheeple still singing it at the top of their lungs. The flat fact is that we’re not brave, no matter which side of the aisle we’re cowering in. As a country, we are motivated almost entirely by fear. Fear of terrorism, fear of conspiracy, fear of conspiracy theorists, fear of global warming, fear of declining industry, fear of job loss, fear of socialism, fear of capitalism, fear Read more […]

Police Arrest Man for Legally Carrying Handgun

What started off as a routine traffic stop ended up with the driver in handcuffs in the back of a patrol car. Rosenberg Police in Texas spotted a man making a right turn without signaling. They pulled him over, and everything was going fine until the driver Alonza Gonzalez notified the cop that he had a concealed carry permit. He let him know up front so that the cop wouldn’t be surprised if he saw that the driver had a firearm on him. He thought he was being responsible in letting the officer Read more […]

Donald Trump Wants to do What with American Muslims?

So in another Twilight Zone episode of history repeating itself, Donald Trump is not ruling out tagging, logging, and tracking every Muslim in the US just in case one might be a terrorist: “Some people are going to be upset about it, but I think that now everybody is feeling that security is going to rule,” Trump said. “Certain things will be done that we never thought would happen in this country in terms of information and learning about the enemy,” he added. “We’re going to have Read more […]

North Carolina City Encourages Residents to Turn in Their Guns During “Nonviolence” Event

The Greensboro Police Department in North Carolina thinks it would be a good idea for residents to turn in their guns in the name of “nonviolence.” The event might make sense if only criminals turned in their weapons. But why in the world would criminals turn in their firearms? They wouldn’t. In fact, they probably get a kick out of other residents turning in their guns. It makes the criminals’ job a lot easier. The Blaze reported: A North Carolina town encouraged residents to sign a nonviolence Read more […]

Insane Fact: The Death Penalty Costs More than Life in Prison

It would seem like a really obvious thing that an inmate that is executed costs the State less than an inmate that lives out the rest of his life in jail. In what might be one of the more puzzling realities of the modern justice system, this is actually not the case. At all: It’s true that the actual execution costs taxpayers fairly little: while most states remain mum on the cost of lethal injections because of privacy concerns from pharmaceutical companies, it’s estimated that the drugs run Read more […]

This New Toy Will Help Traffic Cops Rake in the Dough from Unsuspecting Drivers

While speeding laws may have been started with good intentions, they’re used nowadays as ways to bring in large amounts of money for cities and police departments. City and police officials who stand to gain financially from traffic ticket revenue claim it’s all about safety. I’m sure they wish that no one ever violated any traffic codes ever, right? If that were the case, they’d have to come up with more laws for people to break. They’ve got to make money somehow. The Blaze reported: Drivers Read more […]

Transgender “Woman” Upset with Handling by TSA

A man who now self-identifies as a transgender woman is upset that the TSA detained him/her for a while because of an “anomaly” with their scanner. That “anomaly” was the man’s penis. But he’s upset the TSA wanted him to go through the scanners as a man. Because it was embarrassing and all that. And he missed his flight: In her tweets about the situation, [Shadi] Petosky said that TSA agents calibrated the scanner for a woman, and the machine flagged an anomaly — “my penis.” She Read more […]

Why Did the Ahmed Mohamed Clock Case “Blow Up”?

Ahmed Mohamed is a high school student in Texas who was recently suspended for bringing a home-made clock to school. Just why he was detained and suspended is still up for debate, however. The story goes something like this. Ahmed built a digital clock with circuit boards and stuff in a black box he got from Target. He showed it to one of his science teachers, who thought it was cool. But the teacher told Ahmed that he probably shouldn’t show it to any of the other teachers. I imagine the teacher’s Read more […]

Hillary Clinton Courting the Private Prison Lobby

According to an article in The Intercept, the private prison lobby is working closely with Hillary Clinton to fund her 2016 presidential run: Last week, Clinton and other candidates revealed a number of lobbyists who are serving as “bundlers” for their campaigns. Bundlers collect contributions on behalf of a campaign, and are often rewarded with special favors, such as access to the candidate. Richard Sullivan, of the lobbying firm Capitol Counsel, is a bundler for the Clinton campaign, Read more […]

Butthurt Police Don’t Understand How to Take Criticism from Their Employers

The Dallas Police Department is “mentally beat down,” according to its Rob Pinkston, president of the Dallas Police Association. Amid the recent nationwide backlash against police brutality, numerous local criticisms have apparently taken their toll on department morale: The head of the Dallas Police Association tells CBS 11 News that longer 911 response times can be blamed in part by officers being mentally beaten down. “The bottom line is response times are up, violent crime is up, and Read more […]
