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 […]

Former TSA Lobbyist Now on TSA Appropriations Committee

Oh, the revolving door. How I hate thee. It’s becoming quite common for corporate lobbyists to get seats in key bureaucratic committees overseeing funding for their former employers (see: Comcast and the FCC or Monsanto and the FDA/EPA). The latest entry in that increasingly ballooning file involves the ever-repugnant TSA: Rapiscan Systems lobbied aggressively to win a major contract with the Transportation Security Administration to provide X-ray body scanners at airports, only to lose the Read more […]

Republican Mules Chase the Compromise Carrot

“I am patient with stupidity but not with those who are proud of it.” – Edith Sitwell How many times can one dangle a carrot in front of a mule before the mule figures out that it will never get that carrot? If that mule is a Republican, the answer is never. For decades, Republicans have been caving to the demands of Democrats in an effort to be “bi-partisan,” but all they ever get in return is empty promises. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me…I dunno, several thousand times, shame on me. The Read more […]

Utah Congressman Proposes Disarming BLM Agents and Other Federal Bureaucrats

Gun control fanatics claim they’re against guns, but they’re usually the ones in favor of heavily arming government agents. If you work for the government, you deserve all the heavy weaponry you can get your hands on to protect you from evil, rebellious and dangerous civilians. So, we see agencies like Homeland Security, the Bureau of Land Management, even the Social Security Administration and the Postal Service ordering large amounts of ammo and weaponry. They’re allowed to protect themselves Read more […]

Is the Military Training for American Martial Law?

There’s a 300-acre city in Virginia now that wasn’t there about six years ago. It has public transportation, a sports stadium, offices, and parking lots. It’s a ghost town though. No one lives here. It is a military training city that cost $96 million. Perhaps to make us all feel a little more comfortable, the military included a mosque in this fake city, but in every other way, it appears to be a mock version of pretty much any city in America. The street signs are in English, and the subway Read more […]

TSA Ordered Not To Pat Down Or Screen Members Of Muslim Brotherhood

If you ask the average American on the street what he thinks of the TSA, he might respond with something like this:  “The TSA’s security procedures might be mildly inconvenient and uncomfortable, but they’re a small price to pay for national security and the prevention of terrorism.” If they’re really trying to prevent terrorist acts, then why don’t they screen people who are known members of a terrorist organization? Documents released under a Freedom of Information Act request show Read more […]

Obama Buys Gun Ammo So That We Cannot

There are times when I think I have it all together; when I think I know everything that’s going on. Then someone says something that forces me to realize just how little I actually know. This happens frequently, but it always catches me off guard in the most positive way possible. Seeing something in a new light always helps me refresh my brain and gets me excited about writing. James Inhofe said something recently regarding the government’s ammo purchases that blew me away. It was so simple, Read more […]

The “HS” In DHS Means Our Prison, Not Our Protection

The border has never been safer. That was Janet Napolitano’s testimony recently. She praised her Department’s accomplishments (in other words: boasted in her own) saying that the border “has never been stronger.” And she has evidence to back this up. The number of illegal aliens apprehended by the Department of Homeland Security has never been lower. Obviously, this means that fewer of them are managing to penetrate our border security and arrive in this country illegally. Obviously, Read more […]

Police Chief Opposes Second Amendment; Gets Tank For His “Troops”

Another blog is reporting that the Milwaukee Police Department has purchased an armored tank to use to patrol the city. “This is something you see in a monster truck show,a third world country or the old rural Michigan wastelands I grew up in as a kid.  But seriously what is this used for?  Besides intimidation, the upcoming food riots  or the arrest of bloggers like myself, I can’t really pin point many uses.  It’s not economical to chase speeders and write tickets in a tank,  and I’m Read more […]

DHS Instructional Video For “Active Shooter” Situation: Just Die

I’m sure whatever government bureaucrat produced this video would disagree with me. His script doesn’t tell “civilian” viewers to die from a crazed gunman, he would claim. No he gives great advice on how to survive. You watch the official Homeland Security video and you tell me. However, I also think there is some great stuff in this instructional video that all Americans should see and take to heart. In fact, I recommend this video as the single most powerful argument that every Read more […]
