New World Order Recruits a Global Police Force

obamaThrone U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced at the United Nations on Wednesday that the Department of Justice would be working with several major metropolitan police forces, starting with New York, to create a globe-girdling police force targeting "violent extremism." Yee-haw. It's on like Donkey Kong. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio made it clear that his city has joined 25 other cities worldwide because the global police force will target "intolerance." "The Strong Cities network will Read more [...] Continue reading →

Secret Service Used Personal Data to Punish Sitting Congressman

bigbrother is watching Do you think that the people in the NSA who have access to our personal data will be any more ethical or any less ruthless than the Secret Service? We have asked a time or two about the possibility of a politician being blackmailed by agents of our own government. We’ve wondered about John Boehner’s actions in that regard. Does the NSA have dirt on these politicians so that they can be controlled by others in government? Some want to cling to the idea that, even though the NSA could do Read more [...] Continue reading →

Big Brother Is Fishing in Your Medical Records because Drugs

Obama Death Star If you think your medical records are private, your Federal government disagrees with you. Mark Horne has posted that, by requiring electronic medical records, the government is setting itself up to have access to all our health information. Here is circumstantial evidence that he is right, as reported at “The DEA is rummaging around thousands of people’s medical files without warrants.” DEA, as you probably know, stands for Drug Enforcement Administration—a Federal agency. The Read more [...] Continue reading →

Justice Department Upset over Apple Encryption

iphone Apple encryption means the company cannot hand the Feds real-time interceptions of text messages. The headline in the New York Times reads: “Apple and Other Tech Companies Tangle With U.S. Over Access to Data.” In an investigation involving guns and drugs, the Justice Department obtained a court order this summer demanding that Apple turn over, in real time, text messages between suspects using iPhones. Apple’s response: Its iMessage system was encrypted and the company could not comply. Government Read more [...] Continue reading →

Tax Exempt Organizations Fight to Hide Donors from Government

bigbrother is watching Tax Exempt Organizations have asked the Supreme Court to give them relief from California’s prying eyes. We all know now that a single political donation can get a CEO fired from the company he founded. That is why Mark Horne argued that the IRS should be abolished on First and Fourth Amendment grounds. The lesson here is that the plundering done by the IRS is not their worst feature. If all they did was loot us, we would be immeasurably better off. The IRS is another form of the NSA. They Read more [...] Continue reading →

Jeb Bush Wants Expanded NSA

Bush boys It is crazy that Jeb Bush defended the NSA, but now he is calling for an Expanded NSA. Reuters reports, “Jeb Bush: NSA Needs Broader Powers to Combat 'Evildoers'.” Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush said Tuesday that the government should have broad surveillance powers of Americans and private technology firms should cooperate better with intelligence agencies to help combat "evildoers." At a national security forum in the early voting state of South Carolina, Bush put himself at odds Read more [...] Continue reading →

Federal Agency Installs Surveillance Grid over Major City without Local Government?

Speed Cameras_Yellow Seattle is now under a surveillance grid of cameras thanks to the BATF, who did not consult the Seattle PD or city government. When I first saw this story I thought it must be one of those hoax/satire sites that sometimes fool conservatives. But it looks like a bona fide news site dedicated to happenings and issues related to the Seattle area. The headline: “ATF confirms surveillance cameras installed throughout Seattle.” The Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Read more [...] Continue reading →

Donate to Conservatives: Get Audited

irs delete Judicial Watch has emails that show the IRS used donor lists to decide who got audited. Once again we see the IRS needs to be abolished on First and Fourth Amendment. People are not free to communicate or advocate if they can be subjected to punishments for supporting causes that the IRS does not approve of. And they cannot be free of surveillance and spying if they are required to tell the IRS what causes they support. Being audited is excruciating, even if you are ultimately vindicated. And Read more [...] Continue reading →

Corporations Can Be Good and Generous because Sometimes People Are

southwest airlines And yes, that’s because corporations are people, for better and worse. Everyone pretends that the phrase “corporations are people” refers to the legal concept of “corporate personhood.” It doesn’t. It simply means that  corporations consist of people acting in cooperation. That’s why it is important to realize the restricting the “rights of corporations” is really an attack on people. The only way my writing appears on your screen right now is because of some corporations. Read more [...] Continue reading →

The NSA Is Still Untamed by the Constitution

nsa listens The NSA made the news twice in a way that shows it is still a lawless organization. Several republican candidates are running on a “We need the NSA to keep us safe and it is all Constitutional” platform. Hillary Clinton is not saying anything substantial about it yet, but it is more than likely that she will adopt the same platform. Matt Purple writes at Rare.US: “Two incidents last week proved the NSA is completely out of control.” One incident was reported in the Washington Post. Read more [...] Continue reading →

Judge: If You Are a Conservative You Have Given Up Your Privacy

Viewing Eyes_cropped On the other hand, if you are a Liberal then you get to keep your privacy. I really don’t like Bill Cosby very much from what I read about him lately. It seems likely that he belongs in prison. Since nothing has been prosecuted and the media is biased, I can’t be certain about things, but that is how they look now. So I’m not writing this post to defend Cosby or to express any sympathy for him. Even if he is not guilty of the worst possible charges he is quite certainly an immoral man. Read more [...] Continue reading →

UK Anti-Terrorism Program Targets Christian Children

Education_for_Death Using the excuse of an anti-terrorism program, UK education alerts teachers to children who view homosexual activity as wrong. You can say to yourself that this is only happening in Britain and not here. But it is certainly going to happen here and it probably already is happening. The only difference is the plans and programs are still hidden. Does anyone seriously think there isn’t a government database of all the Facebook profiles that refused to post rainbow images in celebration of the Read more [...] Continue reading →
