Visiting Certain Websites Can Land You on the No-Fly List

This may not surprise you, but visiting certain websites may land you on the no-fly list. No, that doesn’t mean you were put on trial. That doesn’t mean that a warrant was issued, and surveillance was conducted on you. Just by virtue of you visiting certain websites, you may permanently be banned from flying ever … Read more »

Don’t Relax Just Yet: TSA to Continue X-ray Scanners

If like me, you felt triumphant and relieved when you heard that the TSA is pulling their full-body scanners out of airports, brace yourselves because it’s not over yet. Last week, news reports flooded out, announcing the removal of the controversial x-ray scanners from airports. Many happy readers thought that meant that we were finally … Read more »

White House Petition Labels Catholic Church a “Hate Group”

What have Roman Catholics done to get themselves in such hot water? The Pope stated the Catholic Church’s beliefs regarding the Biblical mandate of same-sex marriage and rejecting gay marriage simultaneously. Apparently that behavior is deserving of being officially labeled as a hate group. On their website, the White House is being petitioned to recognize … Read more »

Goodbye 4th Amendment

How we hardly knew you… This according to Scott Shackford on Reason.com: In 2011, Democratic Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy introduced the Electronic Communications Privacy Act Amendments Act, which would require authorities and law enforcement to get a search warrant to access private electronic communications. The bill is now finally up for possible vote next week. … Read more »

Armed Thugs Using ‘Necessary Roughness’

Many of you will notice as of late I’ve been posting many articles that paint the police force in a bad light. That’s not my intent, I don’t like “grouping people.” Surely not all cops are bad. A doctor is presented with symptoms, and searches for the root cause of the problem. He may prescribe something to … Read more »

The Bipartisanship of Tyranny

The only thing that is certain about 9/11 is that it fundamentally altered America. Within days, the foundations of a fascist system were being put into place, and of course everybody was all for it (in the name of security of course). Now, over a decade later, there’s not as many people so willing. Politicians, … Read more »

We Are Losing Our Rights So Slowly, We Aren’t Even Noticing It

How do you overturn fundamental American rights without forcing people into the streets with protest signs, or even rifles? By doing it slowly… slowly… Bill [Whittle] Looks at how the Affordable Care Act and the National Defense Authorization Act threaten our First and Fifth Amendment rights and how both parties are slowly taking away the … Read more »

Ben Swann: Supreme Court ‘STRIPS’ Americans of Their 4th Amendment Rights?

Here I go again. Just when my Conservative friends think I’m “in the pack” I go and break ranks with them. That’s the funny thing about Libertarians. We just don’t seem to fit anybody’s mold. From the WXIX website: (FOX19) – A stunning ruling this week with major implications for every American. The U.S. Supreme Court … Read more »

Protesters Erased From Reality

I.M. Citizen wrote an interesting piece over on Freedom Bunker that caught my eye.

Apparently, H.R. 347, the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act (or the “no protesters allowed” act) is already making its mark.

On March 21st, President Obama paid a visit to New Mexico. On the way there, the Secret Service learned of a plan by New Mexico TEA Party members to protest his arrival, and promptly changed their destination to avoid the protest.

Sher Zieve writes,

When the US Secret Service discovered that the enterprising group of our Southeast New Mexico Patriots had, also, switched their plans and would drive to Roswell to engage in peaceful and Constitutionally allowed dissent against the Obama policies of the destruction of the United States of America, the SS began to put their respective feet down. First, the SS made a strong request that the anti-Obama rally not occur…at all. When the TEA Party members advised them that they still planned to do so, it was announced that the main road (Earl Cummings Loop) into and out of the Roswell airport would be closed. In other words, only the planned Obama sycophants, adherents and Adoration Groups will be allowed in…all others no longer have any free speech.

America: Land of the Police State, Home of the Domestic Extremist

We used to be the land of the free, and the home of the brave.

Now? More like land of the police state, and home of the domestic extremist. That’s what happens when enough people don’t care, or are bamboozled.

In a free society:

  • Police agencies respond only to evidence of planned and actual criminal activity.
  • Police officers keep the peace; they do not investigate citizens and activities unless there is some reason to investigate.
  • Police do not investigate citizens’ attitudes toward the central government, only their action.
  • Citizen dissent is lawful and police agencies do not investigate citizens’ attitudes toward the criminal justice apparatus.

None of that applies anymore. Now, in the United States, the government may:

  • Kill American citizens abroad, or here on US soil, without a trial or judicial review. A secret closed-door meeting is enough to end someone’s life. (Source)
  • Intercept and store 1.7 billion of your emails, phone calls and text messages each day, without a warrant. Enough information to fill 138 million books every 24 hours. (Source)
  • Charge you with a felony for peacefully protesting. (Source)
  • Imprison you for life, without access to a trial or attorney, and can use the US Military to do so. (Source)
