DHS Caught Planning to Ignore Court Orders to Obey Immigration Law

The Daily Signal reports, “Leaked DHS Memo Reveals Attempt to Skirt Immigration Law; Senate Republicans Demand Explanation.” Senate Republicans are asking the Department of Homeland Security to explain a leaked agency memo reportedly revealing that federal officials are planning to evade a federal court order barring pieces of President Barack Obama’s executive immigration actions. Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, led eight others on the committee in a letter sent to DHS Secretary Read more […]

Did Someone from DHS Expose Secrets to Discredit Kevin McCarthy?

Wikipedia was altered to allege that Kevin McCarthy had an extra-marital affair and the IP address of the editor was that of the DHS Offices. Several times on this blog we have raised concerns about how domestic spying and surveillance could be used to destroy or control politicians. It seems as if virtually all politicians are vulnerable to blackmail. We know that the Secret Service recently used its dossier on a politician to punish him. There is no reason to think the NSA would hesitate to Read more […]

DHS Follows the President, Not Laws; Congress Impotent

Federal bureaucrat brazenly testifies that DHS follows the President and can disregard the law to do so. From Republic, to Banana Republic. From the Rule of Law, to Tyranny. Republicans, this is what happens when you completely fail in your duty; when you put power politics above standing on principle, defending liberty, and doing what’s right. This President should have been impeached a long, long, long time ago, to defend the integrity of the office, and uphold your own oath to the Constitution. In Read more […]

DHS Ignored Judge’s Order and Granted Amnesty to Illegal Immigrants

It seems that an executive order for amnesty trumps a judge’s ruling on the Constitution. From the Washington Times: “DHS broke judge’s order, approved amnesty applications despite injunction.” President Obama’s lawyers admitted to a federal judge late Thursday that they had broken the court’s injunction halting the administration’s new deportation amnesty, issuing thousands of work permits even after Judge Andrew S. Hanen had ordered the program stopped. The stunning admission, filed Read more […]

Media Applauds Congress for Saving Homeland Security

Instead of saving Homeland Security, Congress should save America. What a sickening missed opportunity. Congress could have forced the President to choose between funding Homeland Security and funding his executive orders (i.e. self-authorized legislation) on immigration. That would have guaranteed the American people at least some victory no matter what happened. But no, the oppression of the American people is an unconditional commitment for the majority in Congress. So they have “rescued” Read more […]

John Boehner Does Right on Funding DHS

Congress has done their job funding DHS and defunding Obama’s executive orders. The Senate needs to get on board. I am not a big fan of John Boehner, quite the opposite. But compared to Mitch McConnell he seems rather steadfast. On the issue of risking a “shutdown” of the Department of Homeland Security, Boehner is saying that he will not compromise. According to CNN, “House, Senate GOP spar over DHS funding.” The story reports on Boehner’s appearance on Fox News Sunday: “The Read more […]

GOP Immigration Vote: Fighting Obama or Playacting?

The GOP immigration vote tied the issue to Homeland Security. Does this mean they plan to cave? According to Associated Press, “House Dumps Key Obama Immigration Reforms.” In an assault on one of President Obama’s top domestic priorities, House Republicans approved measures today that would overturn his immigration actions and remove protections for immigrants brought illegally to the country as children. Despite a White House veto threat, Republicans attached language blocking Obama’s immigration Read more […]

Dear Senator: Second Amendment Is Real Homeland Security!

Lindsey Graham is afraid to confront Obama fully because we can’t live without Homeland Security. Lots of fodder for discussion in this article at National Review, “What Not Even the King of England Could Do,” like: Not even the King of England at the time of the American Revolution had the authority to suspend laws unilaterally, the Law Library expert wrote in a memorandum to the Senate committee tasked with responding to President Obama’s recent executive orders on the enforcement Read more […]

Is Obama Pulling an Amnesty Bait and Switch?

A funny thing happened on the way to Obama signing his executive order giving amnesty to 5 million plus illegal aliens. He didn’t sign it. The National Archives have confirmed that while Obama signed two executive orders in Las Vegas the day after his national amnesty announcement, neither of them was an executive order fulfilling his amnesty program. In fact, the only document dealing with implementation of the amnesty program Obama outlined is actually a memo from Department of Homeland Read more […]

Without DHS, Who Would Save Us from Pirated Panties?

Pirated panties and unlawful lingerie, oh my! Thankfully, the Department of Homeland Security exists to save us. After the attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, we needed a new Federal agency to protect us from the horrible threats facing the nation. Thus, the Department of Homeland Security was founded. So now this Federal agency is being used to stop panties from being sold with pirated designs that allegedly infringe on the cash cow of an NFL team. According to the Washington Read more […]

DHS Withhold Evidence & That Is Just Fine

Gee, and what would happen to a mere mortal, like me, if I were to “withhold evidence” from a Federal investigation? I’m sure I’d get to keep my freedom, and my job… Yeah, right! –Bob Allen Bob is absolutely right. He is commenting on this story at the Washington Post website: “Aides knew of possible White House link to Cartagena, Colombia, prostitution scandal.” As nearly two dozen Secret Service agents and members of the military were punished or fired following a 2012 prostitution Read more […]

Gov Pays Settlement to Journalist for DHS SWAT Raid

Almost a year ago, I posted about Audrey Hudson who suffered a DHS SWAT raid. Hudson is a journalist and, though the stated reason for the raid was her husband’s firearms, the Homeland Security storm troopers snatched all her private notes. It wasn’t until a month later that Hudson was informed that her confidential papers had been stolen (that’s the word that should be used; not merely “taken”!). Nothing about her notes or property was included in the warrant. They told her that they Read more […]
