Homeland Security Refuses to Review Social Media of People Trying to Immigrate

The other day I warned people about sharing things like “chicken pox parties” on social media where someone who disapproves of their parenting could report them for child abuse. Ironically, Homeland Security doesn’t bother when they are allegedly vetting potential immigrants. From The Hill: “Immigration officials prohibited from looking at visa applicants’ social media.” Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson decided against ending a secret U.S. policy that prohibits immigration officials from Read more […]

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 […]

Homosexuals Outraged that Laws Apply Equally to Them

Why are homosexuals outraged that prostitution is illegal and can get you arrested? I thought they were all happily married now. This story from the New York Times is amazing: “Raid of Rentboy, an Escort Website, Angers Gay Activists.” No, they aren’t angry at the website for degrading and objectifying homosexuals by calling them “rentboys.” They are angry that the laws against prostitution apply to them. For some gay activists, it had shades of bathhouse raids and gay-bar roundups 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 […]

Janet Napolitano Can’t Stand Whiners that Liberals Cultivate

When student whiners hold an underwear demonstration against rising tuition, Napolitano doesn’t seem concerned about income inequality. This would be funny, if it weren’t so sad. The San Francisco CBS affiliate reports, “Napolitano Says ‘We Don’t Have To Listen To This Crap’ As Half-Naked Students Protest Potential UC Tuition Hikes.” University of California President Janet Napolitano remarked to a fellow regent that they “didn’t have to listen to this crap” as underwear-clad 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 […]

Media Keeps Pretending Homeland Security is Our Only Hope

The Senate is caving on immigration and the media is providing cover for them by pretending Homeland Security is indispensable to American security. According to Newser.com, the Senate has hit a wall. According to Politico, it is inching toward a cliff. Republican leaders, racing against the clock to find a tough response to President Barack Obama’s immigration policies, are now left with two messy options: punt or risk getting blamed for shutting down an agency that fights terrorism. A 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 […]

Secret Service Shows How Big Government Degrades

The Secret Service is a legitimate agency of government. Except for anarchists, just about everyone believes that the government is supposed to protect people from harm, including the government itself. But here is the problem. What happens to a competent person who has a history of successfully fulfilling his assigned duties when he takes on many additional responsibilities that were never meant to be part of his job description? He is likely to fail at these new duties—though, perhaps, Read more […]
