Police State

Must See Video: Saratoga NY Police Officer Suspended Due To This Video

Hat/Tip to Epic Times and Editor’s Note: The staff and owners of Conservative Hideout 2.0 have nothing but the utmost respect for Law Enforcement Officers, First Responders, Firefighters and the Military. We understand that the vast majority of police take up that calling to serve their fellow man and to try and make their corner of the world a better place. However when one of the boys in blue over-reaches the bounds of his/her authority as laid out in our United States Constitution, they make the rest of the LEOs look bad. Further, when video evidence of that crosses our […]

Keeping Our Children Safe At School With Grenade Launchers?

Militarization of our police forces has been a hot topic off and on. It became a very hot topic after the Fergusun, Missouri fiasco and, as a result, the federal government has initiated another “investigation” into to their own role in supplying military equipment to police forces around the country. Interestingly, the negative reaction has come from both the sides of the political spectrum. I’m wondering why we haven’t seen this same bipartisan outrage over the militarization of our public schools? You’re not aware that public schools are also being militarized? Maybe that’s because the story is being under reported […]

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 […]
