BORDER PATROL AND THE TSA ALLOWED TO SECRETLY SPY ON EVERYONE'S SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS

The U.S. Border Patrol (CBP) and the TSA claim they need to secretly spy on everyone's social media accounts so they can understand a person's relationship with their friends, family and the government.

According to a DHS report published last month, nothing can stop the Border Patrol or the TSA from secretly spying on everyone's social media accounts.

"In order to conduct a complete investigation, it is necessary for DHS/CBP to collect and review large amounts of data in order to identify and understand relationships between individuals, entities, threats and events, and to monitor patterns of activity over extended periods of time that may be indicative of criminal, terrorist, or other threat."

Understanding a person's relationship with "entities" is just a euphemism for the government. The Feds want to know if you are anti-government an activist or a protester.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I guess this government must love the fact that I am a Christian pacifist activist, who never promotes violence, then!

You're Welcome, DHS, TSA, and Border Patrol!!

Senate Democrats Introduce Assault Weapons Ban of 2019

The odds that the bill will make it to the floor of the Senate are long. Republicans control the Senate, and just like Feinstein's previous bills, The Senate leadership will probably table the bill and not let it come to the floor for debate. -- Even if this bill makes it to the floor for a vote, it would need 60 votes to prevent a filibuster. That would mean that 13 Republican would have to cross party lines which seems unlikely.

Gee, Ya Think? Fed Chairman Powell says he is ‘very worried’ about growing amount of U.S. debt

The Fed chief’s comments came as the annual U.S. deficit reaches new sustained highs above $1 trillion, a fact many economists worry could spell trouble for future generations. Annual deficits have topped $1 trillion before, but never during a time of sustained economic growth like now, raising concern about what would happen if a recession hits.

Worse still, if its efforts to quash dissenting voices in the U.S. are successful, NewsGuard promises that its next move will be to take its system global.

How Times Have Changed: Pentagon Papers Whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg Wins The 2018 Olof Palme Human Rights Prize—48 Years Later

An incredible, but late, distinction and well-placed honor has been awarded to one of the preeminent whistleblowers in history, the now-87-year-old Daniel Ellsberg, who blew the whistle about what became known as the Pentagon Papers[1].

Ellsberg’s late-coming honor was for his “profound humanism and exceptional moral courage,” revealing successive U.S. administrations had lied to the public about the Vietnam War.

The following insightful statement by the award jury demonstrates, in my opinion, just how stupidly Controllers have embraced the idea that those who ‘govern’ are not accountable to those whom they govern:

California, New York roll out taxpayer-funded health care for illegal aliens; the sick will now flock to these states en masse

California Governor Gavin Newsom and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio are rolling out new “free” healthcare initiatives for illegal immigrants. While illegals may be able to access care in these areas free of charge, it will cost tax-paying Americans a pretty penny. Newsom reportedly struggled to explain how California would pay for the expansion of healthcare for illegals, which he signed into law by executive order earlier this month. The Golden State is already in financial ruin, and it is hard to believe spending more tax dollars is going to help in any way, shape or form.

Much like the ancient Greek goddess Persephone, the Popolocan deity Xipe Totec was honored as the totem of the spring harvest in modern-day Mexico during the era before the Aztecs. But the offerings to this deity proved far more gruesome than one might think: Xipe Totec desired the skin of a human sacrifice.

Coast Guard families told to hold garage sales to cope with shutdown

Employees of the U.S. Coast Guard who are facing a long U.S. government shutdown just received a suggestion: To get by without pay, consider holding a garage sale, babysitting or serving as a “mystery shopper.”

The suggestions were part of a five-page tip sheet published by the Coast Guard Support Program, an employee-assistance arm of the service often known as CG SUPRT. It is designated to offer Coast Guard members help with mental-health issues or other concerns about their lives, including financial wellness.

The Coast Guard receives funding from the Department of Homeland Security, and is subjected to the shuttering of parts of the government along with DHS’s other agencies. That stands in contrast to other military services, which are part of the Defense Department and have funding.

UK Supreme Court: no obligation to bake cake with pro-sodomy-propaganda

The UK Supreme Court has unanimously decided that the refusal to bake a cake with the message “Support Gay Marriage” on it cannot be qualified as “discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation”.

The judges emphasized the importance of the right to freedom from forced speech, pointing out that “the rights to freedom of thought, conscience and religion, and to freedom of expression … include the right not to be obliged to manifest beliefs one does not hold…”.

Lesbians Who Filed Complaint Against Baker for Not Making Wedding Cake Wore Hidden Microphones: Report

Two lesbians who filed a complaint against a Christian baker after she declined to make a cake for a same-sex celebration wore hidden microphones to record the refusal, according to a press release from the baker’s attorneys.

“The evidence shows that this was all a set-up to get money and to destroy Cathy for her Christian faith,” said Charles LiMandri, attorney with the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund. “The couple never intended to actually celebrate their marriage with a custom cake from Tastries. We hope as this case moves forward, the full truth will come to light.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The lesbians also violated California Penal Code § 632 which forbids recording a conversation unless all parties present know the recording is being made.

Bettina Arndt speaks at Macquarie Uni on Fake Rape Crisis

Bettina Arndt is currently touring Australian Universities, speaking about the so-called 'rape crisis' on our campuses. She's asking why our higher education sector is lying about the safety of our universities for young women, even after the Australian Human Rights Commission survey showed over 99% of students said they hadn't experienced sexual assault.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The radical feminists pulled this one back in the 1990s, claiming there was a rape epidemic and demanding funding for rape crisis centers and other special protections. Women claiming they were raped in the most outlandish manner shot to instant media stardom, and innocent men went to prison.

It is tragic to see it starting to happen all over again.

Let us be free to debate transgenderism without being accused of 'hate speech'

Criticism of the practice of transgenderism is being censored as a result of a campaign of vilification by transgender activists of anyone who does not accept the new orthodoxy on this issue. A recent Comment is free piece by the transgender activist Roz Kaveney, headlined "Radical feminists are acting like a cult", criticises a forthcoming radical feminist conference, at which I was to be a speaker, on the grounds that I and "my supporters" may be guilty of "hate speech" for our political criticism of this practice.

The year of trans tyranny

Who could have guessed, even a decade ago, that in 2018 the word ‘woman’ would be treated as an expletive? It’s become a dangerous word, either erased from public life altogether or discussed in apologetic, hushed tones. Bizarrely, what ‘woman’ signifies now needs explanation. But anyone brave enough to define women in relation to biology, to make reference to ‘sex’ or ‘female’, risks vilification and public shaming. In a very short space of time we have moved from the premise that men and women exist as fundamentally distinct biological entities with tolerance shown to a small minority of people who chose to live differently, to transgenderism as an ideology that insists all aspects of public life must comply with its demands.

Martina Navratilova in 'transphobic' row over comments about women's sport

Martina Navratilova has angered the transgender community by claiming that people who were born male should not be allowed to compete in women’s sports events.

The former Wimbledon champion and LGBT campaigner made the statement on social media, and was swiftly accused of being “transphobic”.

Responding to a question from one of her followers about transgender women in sport, Navratilova said: “Clearly that can’t be right. You can’t just proclaim yourself a female and be able to compete against women. There must be some standards, and having a penis and competing as a woman would not fit that standard.”

AfD leader blames media smear campaign for ‘assassination attempt’ on state chairman

Magnitz was almost beaten to death by three masked thugs in the northern German city of Bremen. Police said they are treating the incident as a “politically motivated act.”

AfD leader Alice Weidel said “she is completely shocked by this abhorrent act” and partly blames the media for it. According to her the media’s smear campaign against her democratically elected party “finally beared fruit”.

Weidel says “this cowardly attack is to be completely condemned” and “this violence has reached a completely new level”.

The AfD leader also refers to a bombing attack in Döbeln, where an explosive device partly destroyed a local AfD party building.

Diversity Is Strength! It’s Also…Fare Evasion

We can’t have nice things in America for a lot of reasons. Crazy campus Leftists have criminalized conservative speech. Federal judges protect illegal aliens. Christophobes wage War on Christmas. But another reason: the decriminalization of petty crime because the punishment “falls disproportionately” on blacks. Hence the increasing toleration of fare evasion on America’s subways.

The latest municipality to jump (so to speak) on that train: Washington, D.C. City council just voted 10-2 to decriminalize fare evasion, the local news radio station reported, because “criminal penalties disproportionately affected African-Americans.” Unsurprisingly, the two votes against the idea came from whites, Jack Evans and Council Chairman Phil Mendelson (right) who correctly noted the insanity of the change without addressing its racial justification:

Tax Revenues From Legalization Of California Pot Sales Are 34% Below Projections

When Californians voted in 2016 to allow the sale of recreational marijuana, advocates of the move envisioned thousands of pot shops and cannabis farms obtaining state licenses, making the drug easily available to all adults within a short drive.

But as the first year of licensed sales comes to a close, California’s legal market hasn’t performed as state officials and the cannabis industry had hoped. Retailers and growers say they’ve been stunted by complex regulations, high taxes and decisions by most cities to ban cannabis shops. At the same time, many residents are going to city halls and courts to fight pot businesses they see as nuisances, and police chiefs are raising concerns about crime triggered by the marijuana trade.

Although it seemed drastic, Zion’s parents trusted that Kool Smiles — a privately held dental company operating in more than a dozen states — had his best interests in mind.

How Flappers Invented the Modern Woman

One of the most memorable and endearing images of the 1920s is that of a Flapper. Flappers were often depicted as fun-loving, carefree, party girls who could drink and smoke as much as the men who flocked to dance with them. What this generation of young women was doing by cutting their hair, shortening their skirts, taking jobs and breaking societal rules was redefining the role of women in our culture. They were inventing the modern woman. Here’s how.

The Feds Are Using a Gag Order To Censor a Critique of Its Prosecutions. Bring on the Lawsuits.

The liberty-loving attorneys of the Institute for Justice are teaming up with the Cato Institute to fight a federal policy that forbids defendants from discussing the terms of civil settlements they enter into with the federal government. If they don't keep their mouths shut, these defendants are threatened with harsher punishments.

The offending agency targeted in a federal lawsuit filed today is the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The Cato Institute wants to publish a book by an entrepreneur who believes he's the victim of prosecutorial overreach by the SEC. But he can't tell his story for fear of further prosecution.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why are have they "gag-noticed" this person?!?

Something here is plainly just not right, if the Securities and Exchange Commission is so eager to not have this person speak about the complaint against him.

Central American migrants keep heading toward USA, even as Trump focuses on stopping caravans

In his first ever Oval Office prime time address, President Donald Trump argues funding for his long-promised border wall is needed on security and humanitarian grounds and urges Democrats to "acknowledge the crisis." (Jan. 8) AP

President Donald Trump's efforts to halt migrant caravans and limit asylum have not deterred Central American minors and members of their families from rushing toward the USA, according to data released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection on Wednesday.

Border Patrol agents apprehended 27,518 members of family units in December, the highest monthly total on record. That figure has steadily climbed for five months, even as Trump made stopping migrant caravans the centerpiece of his midterm election strategy and drove Washington into a partial government shutdown over funding for his border wall.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump is absolutely correct, in characterising this as "a crisis". And I have an interesting companion piece to share:

Number of sick kids soars at the border.

Please, contact your (alleged) Congressional Representative, and Senator, and share this with them. Be polite; be consistent; but just make absolutely certain that THEY Know...THAT YOU know what is going on here.

Gregg Jarrett: Why Rosenstein’s departure will help restore the rule of law at the Justice Department

Reports Wednesday by Fox News and others that rogue Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is expected to resign in several weeks – soon after William Barr is confirmed by the Senate as our nation’s next attorney general – mean that the Justice Department is headed for badly needed reforms.

Under the failed leadership of fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Rosenstein, the department has been operating more like the Department of Injustice in its handling of the out-of-control and ever-expanding Russia probe led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and overseen by Rosenstein. And that’s only one example of Rosenstein’s misconduct.

Rosenstein has been the de facto attorney general almost since the outset of the Trump administration. Throughout his tenure, Rosenstein manipulated and supplanted the feckless Sessions, who served as attorney general in name only.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to hope this writer is correct, but I am not holding my breath that this is really going to happen.

Reporters nonprofit calls for court to unveil filings in mystery grand jury subpoena

A nonprofit that fights on behalf of journalists has asked the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., to make public filings in the fight over a mystery grand jury subpoena thought to be tied to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

In a 33-page motion filed Wednesday, The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press argued that the First Amendment and common law require at least some documents to be made available to the public.

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals last month upheld a lower court order that found a foreign government-owned company in contempt and imposed a $50,000 fine per day for its failure to comply with a federal grand jury subpoena for information.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good; I hope this group gets a positive nod on this motion; It is high time the American people know what is really going on, in terms of Mueller's investigations.

$3.5 Trillion A Year: America’s Health Care System Has Become One Of The World’s Largest Money Making Scams

If the U.S. health care system was a country, it would have the fifth largest GDP on the entire planet. At this point only the United States, China, Japan and Germany have a GDP that is larger than the 3.5 trillion dollar U.S. health care market. If that sounds obscene to you, that is because it is obscene. We should want people to be attracted to the health care industry because they truly want to help people that are suffering, but instead the primary reason why people are drawn to the health care industry these days is because of the giant mountains of money that are being made. Like so many other things in our society, the health care industry is all about the pursuit of the almighty dollar, and that is just wrong.

Please, TSA Workers, Don’t Come Back

Understandably, Transportation Security Administration (TSA) employees are no more enthusiastic about working when their paychecks are delayed than is anybody else on the planet. That's why they've been calling-in sick in increased numbers—some to seek temporary work elsewhere in order to pay their bills—as the more-theater-than-reality "government shutdown" drags on. But, isn't this an opportunity for us all? Given that the world is a better place when TSA employees and other government minions don't do their jobs, and some are already seeking alternative employment, what a great opportunity to shut down their agencies, shrink the government, and make everybody's lives a little better!

Social media wastes no time erupting with Chuck and Nancy 'disappointed parent' memes, after their instant rebuttal of Trump's border security speech

Twitter was flooded with memes Tuesday night comparing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer to 'disappointed parents' as they responded to President Trump's Oval Office address.

Pelosi and Schumer used their allotted time after Trump's prime-time speech to rip his 'obsession' with the border wall and castigate him for 'throwing a tantrum'.

Schumer and Pelosi, who both served in office during the shutdowns of the Clinton administration where House Republicans ended up getting most of the blame, blamed the president for a 'senseless shutdown' and called the wall 'cruel' and unnecessary.

Meanwhile, Twitter users wasted no time pointing out their stone-cold sober appearance.
