Obama Administration Plans to use Military Force Against US Citizens

Hat/Tip to the Washington Times. The Obama administration has put in place a plan authorizing the use of Military force against United States Citizens. Presidential Directive No. 3025.18, “Defense Support of Civil Authorities,” was issued Dec. 29, 2010, and states that U.S. commanders “are provided emergency authority under this directive.” A 2010 Pentagon directive on military support to civilian authorities details what critics say is a troubling policy that envisions the Obama administration’s potential use of military force against Americans. The directive contains noncontroversial provisions on support to civilian fire and emergency services, special events and the domestic use of […]

Reports: Scorpions drummer jailed in Dubai for insulting Islam

Scorpions’ drummer, 51 year old James Kottak was arrested on April 3rd of this year for “insulting Islam” and “drinking  alcohol without a license.” The charges stem from an incident in the Dubai Airport, in which Mr. Kottak got lost and vented his frustrations in, well shall we say a very non-PC manner. [A]ccording to The National, he drank five glasses of wine on a flight from Moscow to Dubai (which is roughly a five hour flight), and then, after deboarding, got lost in Dubai International Airport, and then vented his frustration by screaming about “non-educated Muslims,” refusing to travel […]

Quoting Winston Churchill is now a Crime in the UK

Paul Weston, the leader of the Liberty GB party in Great Britain was arrested this past weekend for, of all things publicly quoting one of his country’s greatest statesmen, Sir Winston Churchill. Yes, you read that right. It would analogous to Sarah Palin being arrested in America for publicly quoting George Washington, or Abraham Lincoln. But before we get to the “crime” of quoting Churchill, just exactly what is the Liberty GB party? Well, it has been favorably compared to the Tea Party movement here in the United States. Liberty GB has been compared to the USA’s Tea Party, and […]

Fourth Grade Common Core Assignment Uses Adultery as Topic

As time wears on, we see more and more examples of exceptionally inappropriate Common Core assignments.  Here is the latest, because all fourth graders need to know about how daddy got busted in adultery.  “Making inferences is a skill with which students often need much practice.” So begins the syntactically challenged introduction to a series of Common Core-related educational materials at a site called The worksheets and the site were created by Donald Morton, who — judging from the photograph accompanying the bio under “About” — is a cat. He is also, he informs the visitor, “a prolific online reading, language arts, and teaching […]

The Unmarked Matte-Gray Crown Vic: Afterburner with Bill Whittle

Bill Whittle is at it again.  Here is his latest video: The Unmarked Matte-Gray Crown Vic. Here is the text intro to the video… Bill Whittle noticed something annoying on a recent commute: a Crown Victoria without license plates. Why are the authorities becoming more militarized and treating Americans like the enemy? Hear more on this Afterburner with Bill Whittle. Once again, Bill Whittle causes us to think and question.  No wonder liberals hate him. H/T:  America’s Watchtower

Obama Throwing NSA Under the Bus? Is That a Good Idea?

In going along with the Obama administrations “lie and deny” scandal control template, the deniers and liars are stating that they did not know that the NSA were spying on foreign leaders.  In the process, they are blaming the NSA for the said spying.  The spies, however, are not at all pleased with their new accommodations under the bus.  Poor Richard’s News has more… Officials at the NSA aren’t very happy about the Commander in Chief throwing them under the bus in the recent high-profile spying scandal in which it was revealed they spied on leaders of foreign allies like […]

Spies and Lies in this Brave New World

Remember when conservative bloggers first started warning us about the super secret NSA data center being built in Utah? The warnings that the NSA was going to be able to capture and store all cell phone calls and all e-mails and virtually anything that took place on the World Wide Web. We were told that our government would know everything about every citizen;  that there would be no more reasonable expectation of privacy, in spite of our constitutional protection against unreasonable search and seizure. The usual voices called the people making these warnings “conspiracy theorist” and paranoid wackos. Then a […]

Police State: Former Marine Schools Concord, NH on Militarization of Police

If the fact that you’re having a harder and harder time differentiating between a infantry solider and a cop, Former Marine Colonel,  Peter Martino, held class in a Concord, NH town meeting… Here is a bio on the Colonel from The Business Insider… And here’s a description of the colonel: Mr. Martino is a Colonel in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve who has been mobilized three times. During his military career, he commanded an infantry platoon, company, and battalion. He was also the senior U.S. adviser to an Iraqi Army brigade. Mr. Martino has had a successful civilian career providing […]

Police in Nevada Accused of Violating the Third Amendment?

I’ve never written on the Third Amendment.  There really have never been a reason to do so.  You see the Third Amendment, at first reading, does seem to apply only to a bygone era… No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law It made sense at the time, as the British had a thing for taking over people’s homes.  But, is there is an application for the 21st century?  It appears there just might.  Take a […]

Video: The Transformation of Society

I know, I said I was going to step back but I just can’t help myself.  Anyway I found this interesting video on You Tube.  Please take a few minutes to check it out. Source: The Corbett Report It’s shocking to see how quickly we have transformed as a society.  Principles that were commonplace only 50 years ago are now gone.  The narrator ask how do we snap people out of this state of affairs; or as I see it this apathetic mindset?  What needs to happen to wake the people up?  In my opinion waking people up will be […]

Jared Marcum, Age 14, Faces Possible Year in Jail for Wearing NRA T-Shirt

Of course, the powers that be will not say that it has anything to do with the shirt, but it appears that Jared Marcum, a 14 year-old student is facing potential imprisonment for wearing a NRA T-shirt. We covered this back in April… And, as the TV report indicates, the shirt in question does not violate school policy, yet they took some rather extreme actions against him. Here is a bit more from WOWK… “I don’t’ see how anybody would have an issue with a hunting rifle and NRA put on a t-shirt, especially when policy doesn’t forbid it,” Lardieri […]

True the Vote, Worked to Prevent or Expose Voter Fraud: Investigeted by the IRS, OSHA, FBI, and ATF

Frankly, they must have run out of alphabet agencies with available staff.  We have mentioned True the Vote before.  They are a group that did much to expose fake voter registrations, and massive flaws in voter registration rolls… Unions Promise to Defend Voter Fraud? Voter Fraud: Unraveling the Progressive Puzzle More Pre-election Quick Hits: Just in Case you are Still Undecided True the Vote: Voter Fraud Revisited Voter Fraud Alert: ACORN Members Plead Guilty, Funny Business in Texas This group became a thorn in the side of the Democratic Party, their allies, and the Obama administration by working to expose […]

Florida Sheriff Ric Bradshaw Encourages Citizens to “Inform” on Neighbors

Ric Bradshaw, Sheriff of Palm Beach Country, Florida, has decided to channel the Soviet Union and have citizens “inform” on their neighbours who are critical of the government.  The Clash Daily has more… A new $1 million dollar program led by Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw aimed at “violence prevention” is encouraging Floridians to report their neighbors for making hateful comments about the government, a chilling reminder of how dissent is being characterized as an extremist threat. “Bradshaw plans to use the extra $1 million to launch “prevention intervention” units featuring specially trained deputies, mental health professionals and caseworkers.

What Really Happened in Boston: Constitution Defied?

I had a very uneasy feeling for the entire search for the second Boston Marathon bomber.  How does one shut down an entire city? Considering the Constitution, under what authority can people be ordered from their homes at gun point, and searched without a warrant?  Just a reminder, here is the Fourth Amendment… The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and […]

German Authoprities Use SWAT Team to Remove Homeschooled Girl From Parents

There are apparently times that the Germans forget exactly who won the war.  When it comes to homeschooled children, they apparently think that the little man with the silly moustache is still in power, and run off to seize the children for the glory of the state.  The Libertarian Republic has more… The state describes the reasons they took the child as because she is overly devoted to her father. It states that she is “A highly disturbed girl who obediently and faithfully obeys the idealistic statements of the father and who describes the state as being despotic and fascist-like.” The girl […]

Missouri Gives Their Concealed Carry Permit List to the Feds

I’ve said before that if the Democrats can’t directly ban guns, that they’ll take any and every path to  confiscate as many as possible.  At some point, you’re going to want to know who has guns in order to confiscate them.  Which is why Democrats wants national databases of gun owners, and Conservatives resist such measures.  But, if Democrats cannot make their own, they will get them from the states.  That is what allegedly happened in Missouri.  Apparently, they shared their Concealed Carry Permit database with the Feds.  Liberty News has more…   This is from yesterday: The Missouri State […]

Live Feed for Rand Paul’s Filibuster

Rand Paul is using a good old fashioned filibuster to delay the nomination of John Brennan for CIA Director.  His focus is drones and the Obama’s Administration assertion that the president can not only order the killing of Americans-not only abroad, but domestically as well.  Since the government has already declared his opposition as “potential terrorists.”  There are rather chilling implications for being a declared terrorist, potential or otherwise. At any rate, here is the video, via Raw Story… I will stickie this for the duration.

Apparently, DHS is Preparing to Shoot Pregnant Women, Children, and the Elderly

There has been a rather disturbing development in the training that DHS is providing.  If it can be said that one trains for the fight one expect to have, it’s pretty clear that DHS plans to shoot pregnant women, children, and the elderly.  For the lead-in to my discussion, Doug Ross (no relation) has more… Finally, the DHS will put an end to the epidemic of seven-year olds and pregnant women shooting cops. The company says it’s all about, uhm, realism. The subjects in NMH targets were chosen in order to give officers the experience of dealing with deadly force […]

Setting the Stage: Making Criminals out of Law Abiding Citizens

I think we might be seeing a coordinated effort to make criminals out of law abiding citizens.  For the set up, Gateway Pundit has more… THIS IS AN ORGANIZED NATIONAL EFFORT FOLKS…… This is not a coincidence. It is a concerted effort. Missouri Democrats are pushing a bill to confiscate guns giving gun owners 90 days to turn in their weapons. Minnesota Democrats are pushing the same bill. Dana Loesch has more details. Here is the language: 4. Any person who, prior to the effective date of this law, was legally in possession of an assault weapon or large capacity […]

Law Abididng Citizens Preparing to Resist Gun Laws

Of course, once the laws pass, the law abiding with be, shall we say; “reclassified?”  In NY State, citizens are stating their displeasure with the state’s efforts to disarm them. In other words., they are preparing to resist gun laws.  Take a look at this video from a public meeting last week… In the end, government at all levels can pass gun laws.  The question is, how many people are they willing to kill or imprison to enforce them?  Some will not follow unjust laws.  What are your thoughts?  

Obama/Holder’s War on Small Business and Their Gestapo Like Tactics

Last year on the campaign trail, Obama let his slip show when he said that if you owned a small business, you didn’t build that. With absolutely zero experience in the private sector, our president has no idea what it means to risk your own, hard earned money, time and good name to start a business. Being steeped in the politics of Marx, Obama actually loathes folks that have made it on their own, with no help or thanks from the federal government. His education in Alinsky’s tactics, the MSM’s blind devotion and a dumbed-down electorate have all come together […]

Is the Obama Administration Selecting Generals Based on Whether or not They Would Order Soldiers to Fire on US Civilians

You might want to sit down for about 20 minutes and watch this video. This strikes me as being part of a larger play. We’ve been informed that we are potential terrorists.  And, if you want the military to fire on US civilians civilians, it’s a lot easier to shoot at terrorists.  It’s easy to vilify and dehumanize potential terrorists.  Of course, the MSM has helped tremendously, as it’s easy to kill KKK, racists, Nazis, and teabaggers. I hope this is wrong, but based on what we know of Obama, it is completely plausible. H/T: Moonbattery

David Gregory Above the Law? Media Bias Trumps Gun Laws!

Oh to be a influential liberal!  I could be Al Gore, and while telling everyone that they need to live in thatch huts, I could live in big mansions and fly around in private jets.  Or, I could be Michael Moore, and hang out with the 99% and tout democracy, while living in a 1% house, and forcing workers to join unions.  Because, as well all know, nothing says democracy like forced union membership. But, David Gregory media talking head at NBC, may take the cake,  He appeared on Meet the Press last week… Visit for breaking news, world […]

Connecticut State Police Threaten to Investigate and Arrest People Spreading False Information on Social Networking Sites

This is a rather chilling example of authoritarianism.  A spokesman for the Connecticut State Police threatened to investigate and arrest people spreading false information on the Sandy Hook shooting.  Here is the video, via Steve Piotrowski’s 1776-R.   This is chilling for three reasons: 1.  People can be wrong, and post things that they think are true.  Perhaps people were just posting what they saw on one of the alphabet networks?  Because, quite frankly, they have been reporting incorrect information all the time. 2.  What happens when facts don’t fit the narrative, and are discarded?  There are plenty of times, as of late, where information has been […]

Drone and Cyber Technology : Moral, Leagal and Privacy Issues- Part I

Technological advancements often bring with them moral and ethical issues. Two such technologies that are often in the news today have to do with drones and the cyber world of the internet. Part I will deal with drone technology and Part II will deal with cyber technology. Drones and  the War on Terrorism: Abroad and at Home The inspiration for today’s subject came from a recent thought-provoking  post at Freedom By The Way where she discusses what has become known as Obama’s personal hit list and asks the question: “Is murder by drone constitutional?” This is an excellent article and includes a short video […]
