New Cybersecurity Bill Protects Companies as Government Snitches

A new bill passed this week will grant protection from prosecution of for violation of privacy laws to companies who share private data.  While it is allegedly limited to specific types of information, the concerns of lawmakers and privacy groups is that this law will open the door to government encroaching on the rights of the citizenry. The Washington Post Reports The Senate on Tuesday passed a cybersecurity bill that would give companies legal immunity for sharing data with the federal government, Read more […]

DOJ Lets Lois Lerner, IRS Off the Hook

It was a foregone conclusion, but the Obama Administration’s right hand just couldn’t find anything wrong with what the left hand did, even if it was designed to help the president win a second term by targeting his political opponents. The Department of so-called Justice announced Friday that Lois Lerner and other IRS managers will not face any charges after singling out for harassment conservative groups that applied for nonprofit status leading up to the 2012 election. Dozens of conservative Read more […]

Barack Obama Doubles Down on Arrogance

The mainstream media is admitting that Barack Obama is a self-adoring scoffer who thinks advertising his arrogance is a winning strategy. It is easy to feel ambiguous about the President’s way of speaking and the media’s reporting of it. On the one hand, overwhelming arrogance is obviously bad. On the other hand, it is somewhat refreshing to see the President stop pretending and the media to stop covering for him. Politico.com reports, “Obama’s Trash Talk.” It’s not just the fourth Read more […]

Another Imperial Raid of a Rebel Base: Uber Offices

The raid of the Uber offices in Amsterdam shows that “the free world” is not remotely as free as it likes to posture itself as being. When one thinks of Amsterdam today, as opposed to its older history, one thinks of drug culture, legal marijuana, and an overabundance of sex workers. I don’t doubt that the Dutch pride themselves on being “a free country.” They probably hear about SWAT drug raids in the United States and say to themselves with a feeling of satisfaction, “We don’t Read more […]

The FDA Will Tell You What Mayonnaise Is, for the Egg Lobby

The FDA is about to hammer a company for selling egg-free mayo because they are making mayonnaise without eggs in it. Control freaks. I don’t like it but there are vegans in the world. And there are others who, sadly, don’t think eggs (or too many of them) are healthy. Furthermore, there are people with real egg allergies who should not eat eggs. And there are many such people who like mayonnaise. So there is a company called Hampton Creek that caters to these customers, selling them Read more […]

When Zero Tolerance Is Gun Control on Steroids: What Happens When ALL Self-Defense is Illegal?

Zero tolerance means that one person rescuing another person from violence might be prosecuted as a crime some day. While there are times when one wishes for more police accountability, many other times they are the most sensible of public employees. In fact, they can often use common sense when others refuse to do so. A recent instance of this occurred when a teen began attacking a legally blind kid by punching him. Another teen intervened by punching the bully and knocking him to the ground. According Read more […]

The Campaign to Criminalize Climate Change Dissent

A group of scientists are petitioning Barack Obama to criminalize climate change dissent by prosecuting the dissenters under RICO law. Since most scientists in the United States and the Western countries generally are a pack of welfare dependents, this request amounts to the government asking itself to expand its power. “Science” is now a government-industry that has massively expanded since WWII through the state university system as well as through funding for “research.” So these Read more […]

What’s Love Got To Do With It?

“This is a vision of love,” claims a statement from the group Black Lives Matter. Meanwhile, group members have rioted, committed assault, torched and destroyed. “Love won! Love won!” shouted pro-homosexual demonstrators outside a Kentucky courthouse where Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis was thrown in jail for practicing her Christian beliefs and not issuing homosexual marriage certificates. The Left will tell you these two movements are about love because they are fighting for equality. But the Read more […]

NYPD Says You’re Helpless with a Workplace Shooter, but They Will Arrest You if You Carry

If a workplace shooter comes to your office, you had better be able to run and hide because the police won’t be there in time to help you. This headline from Newser.com reads as if the police are doing us a favor by giving us helpful information: “NYPD: Your Desk Won’t Save You From a Shooter.” Most mass shootings happen in the workplace and most of them are over before police get there, according to the New York City Police Department, so workers need to know how to react. The NYPD held Read more […]

San Diego Plunders a Woman $25 Grand for Using AirBnB to Provide Lodging for Consumers

The city says she needed a permit for using AirBnB—which would have cost her $5,000 to $10,000 and taken up to a year to get. When Liberals get outraged because the Supreme Court allegedly said that corporations are people, think about their strategy. Liberals rarely (until they reach a later stage) want to admit that they want to plunder people, or punish them. And claiming to be “against” a corporation allows them to manufacture this diversion. Corporations are always these abstractions Read more […]

The God-Ordained Family Government

I had the privilege this week of graduating a class of homeschooling students that I taught in our summer school at IOTC. I taught them the Biblical view of Law and Government and our founder’s understanding of the founding documents. What an encouragement it was to see young students from 5th grade and up, eager to learn these essential principles of liberty. I believe one of the few bright spots on the horizon in our land today is the homeschool and Christian school movement. There are Read more […]

Another Defeat of the First Amendment in Court

A baker lost his case that he had a First Amendment right not to support a same-sex “marriage.” We have judges in this country who are completely committed to emptying the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. We get to see another instance of this in the ruling, yesterday, against Jack C. Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver. A three-judge panel claimed that he was guilty of discrimination for refusing to make a wedding cake for two men. What makes this ruling extra Read more […]
