by Skip July 22, 2017

Jeh Johnson (former Obama Secretary of DHS) (emphasis mine, reformatted): Johnson argued on CNN’s “New Day” that Trump’s tone toward illegal immigrants has made those in Central America and Mexico afraid to enter the U.S., and the people would rather stay in their home countries instead of risking an illegal entrance. “Through his rhetoric, he scared off a lot of […]

Using no-fly lists in all their arbitrary glory to ignore due process protections takes on a whole new light when you apply the same empty fascist thinking to other natural rights enumerated in the Constitution. Congressman Trey Gowdy drives the point home in this video from last year which I’ve been sharing all over social media. […]

Homeland Security – dotting ALL the I’s and crossing the T’s identifying domestic terrorists – Oh Wait!

by Skip February 11, 2016

Yeah, we’re in the BEST of Political Correctness (hint: that’s a hint) hands.  Our Dept. of Homeland Security is on the top of their game watching inside our borders (yeah, that’s another sad joke).  Here’s who they think are our greatest threats: Yup, look at them all.  Look hard.  Now, let’s play “where’s Waldo?”

AoSHQ | It’s hard to connect the dots when you refuse to acknowledge the dots exist. Fearing a civil liberties backlash and “bad public relations” for the Obama administration, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson refused in early 2014 to end a secret U.S. policy that prohibited immigration officials from reviewing the social media messages of […]

Just a Quick Note To The Democrat Enablers…

by Steve MacDonald May 22, 2013

There are more than a few people making excuses for the recent scandals involving the Benghazi cover up, the AP phone scandal and the IRS.  Without laboring the point these are just the latest of those we know about.   The point I want to make is this:  Are the people excusing or dismissing this behavior because […]

GAO to Investigate Ammunition Stockpiling By Federal Agencies

by Steve MacDonald April 30, 2013

The Government accountability office (GAO) has begun looking into why the Obama administration is arming agencies with enough ammo to sustain the average war for 27 years?  Good question.  We’ve been wondering that ourselves.  Why would a guy who claimed that the country needed a civilian national security force be arming the department of education, […]

Feds Gobble Up Ammo: Marines and Police Scrimp And Save

by Mike March 30, 2013

First there were the stories about DHS buying 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition, for practice – perfectly innocent, they said. Steve explained that, even if the purchases were for practice, at normal rates of consumption, that would be sufficient for decades of practice, and besides, hollow point rounds are illegal in war, and an expensive […]

Obama’s Army….Only Following Executive Orders

by Tom March 25, 2013

Is Obama’s “Civilian National Security Force” being staged and supplied under our very noses? “We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” – BHO, Colorado, […]

We’ve been warned of tainted food as the FDA furloughs workers, thinning ranks as border agents get let go, and fewer Federal prosecutors, and don’t forget about those FAA employees that have to be let go. So why, in the age of sequesteria, has the Federal Government posted job opening to fill 2,596 positions in just the past ten days? […]

From The Edge Of Sequestration…Another Update

by Steve MacDonald March 5, 2013

The Edge Of Sequestration.  Sounds like a Soap Opera, but then it is.  Take the TSA for example.  Janet Napolitano promised we would suffer if Sequestration were allowed to take effect as workers were furloughed. Wait-times at airports would skyrocket because of these budget cuts. While you’re waiting in those longer lines that may or may not […]

by Tim Condon March 4, 2013

Driving Out The Competition

by Steve MacDonald February 7, 2013

I have posited elsewhere in these pages that the government (when run by this particular crowd of liberal Democrats at least) very likely engages in tax policy designed to eliminate political competition. If, for example, you drive off all the wealthy people or confiscate so much of their wealth that they cling (bitterly) to whatever […]
