DHS Oversight Says Social Media Scanning Program Is Badly Implemented And Agency Doesn't Even Know If It Works

The DHS and CBP have both taken a healthy interest in travelers' social media posts. The DHS head even suggested withholding this information would no longer be an option -- that demands for account passwords were on the way. (Considering the government can search every person and their electronic devices at the border, demands for social media info would seem to be mostly redundant...) The underlying premise is this would give the US a jump on incoming terrorists by checking travelers' posts against a list of troublesome terms.

Has The Deep State Begun Its Revenge On Trump?

The Deep State is set to prick the largest bubble in human history today… The Deep State is the permanently entrenched “national security” bureaucracy - the top tier of the military, the CIA, FBI, NSA, etc. It also includes the Federal Reserve, the quintessential Establishment institution. They all hate President Trump. They did everything possible to stop him from taking office. None of it worked. They fired all of their bullets, but he still wouldn’t go down.

U.S. Army Launches "Jungle Warfare Training" Camp

The United States Army gave up its jungle training school in Panama in 1999 when the U.S. returned land there to the Panamanian government. A couple years later jungle training was all but phased out in the aftermath of the September 11th terrorist attacks as the Army focused money and manpower on preparing soldiers to fight in the mountainous desert terrains of Afghanistan and Iraq. Now, surviving and fighting in tropical rainforests has once again recaptured the Army’s interest and sparked the launch of its first jungle training school in decades located some 30 miles inland from Hawaii's Waikiki Beach.

A potentially HUGE mistake for the Trump DOJ : Sessions Wants To Bring Back Reagan-Era Drug Policies

We thought that a detente had been reached with AG Sessions on the pot issue. We thought we had all agreed that there are probably more important things for the Department of Justice on which to focus than on legal weed. Lord knows there are. It seems to us that marijuana is clearly a state issue per the Constitution. It would appear to fall solidly under the 10th Amendment. (As should any number of issues.) As a presumed fan of federalism and smaller government Mr. Sessions, state regulation of cannabis seems the lawful and morally correct choice.

Federal court allows lawsuit on recording police to proceed

In a major win for free speech and police accountability, a Massachusetts federal court has ruled in favor of two ACLU clients who seek to exercise their constitutional right to record the police in secret. The lawsuit, Martin v. Evans, was brought on behalf of civil rights activists Eric Martin and René Pérez against Suffolk County DA Dan Conley and BPD Commissioner William Evans. Our clients assert that the Massachusetts wiretap statute violates their First Amendment right to record police officers in the public performance of their duties because it prohibits their ability to do so secretly. Filed in June 2016, the suit asks a Boston federal court to issue declaratory and injunctive relief barring the defendants from arresting or prosecuting individuals under the state’s wiretap statute for recording police officers in secret.

Third Time's The Charm - The Neocons Want Another Sunni Insurgency

The U.S. is now engaging with Russia and local Kurdish forces in Syria to destroy the Takfiri groups on the ground. The Kurds are of various religions and denominations with a mostly secular outlook. That plan made some progress though an actual attack on Raqqa, the current center of the Islamic State, is still weeks off. The Syrian government is winning its part of the fight in the west of the country.

How Kenyan spies and cops use Israeli electronic surveillance for illegal murder and torture squads

Kenya has always had an overreaching and often abusive domestic surveillance apparatus -- a legacy of British colonial rule. But the 21st century has proved fertile for those who wish to expand the capacity of police and spies to conduct warrantless, unaccountable programs of murder and torture, thanks to the real threat of terrorism from Kenya's failed-state neighbours and the ready availability of high-tech spying tools bought in from Israeli cyber-arms dealers.

EMS teams compete against each other in national shooting contests

Two years ago, I warned everyone that Paramedics and EMS teams were training for urban warfare and people claimed, I had no clue what I was talking about. I wish they were right, but as you'll see things are only getting worse. For two years now, paramedics nationwide have been competing in marksmanship contests!

The Very REAL PROBLEMS And CONCERNS Regarding AMI Smart Meters

As an aerospace engineer and former employee of the Department of Defense, Sen Colbeck came forward to ask questions and make statements, I think, all policy makers everywhere, especially at federal levels, should be presenting regarding Smart Meters and the Grid. Sen Colbeck feels Smart Meters are “putting our homes, our nation and, frankly, some of the power suppliers at risk.” Why others can’t or won’t see that never seems to amaze me.

Comet Pizza Gunman To Plead Guilty In Plea Deal With U.S. Attorney

Back in early December, the Pizzagate situation took a bizarre turn for the worse when a gunman, since identified as 28-year-old North Carolina resident Edgar Welch, stormed the Comet Ping Pong pizza restaurant with a .38-caliber Colt revolver and an AR-15 in search of an alleged pedophilia ring thought to be tied to various members of Hillary's inner circle. After failing to find the evidence he sought, but not before letting off a couple of rounds inside the pizza joint in the process, Welch was arrested by Washington D.C. police.
