Very soon the Department of Homeland Security won’t have to touch you to know everything it wants to know about you. Using a new laser-based scanner that fires a beam from about 164 feet, the government will be able to see everything it wants to see about your body, your clothes, and what’s in your suitcase. Reports indicate that the soon to be deployed scanner is so powerful that it can detect everything from “what you had for breakfast to the adrenaline level in your body.”
In a recent speech delivered to supporters in Roanoke, Virginia, President Obama reignited a class warfare-brand of rhetoric that is sure to inflame many hardworking Americans who have labored tirelessly to achieve their own success. Emphasizing that affluent individuals “didn’t get there” on their own, the president’s dialogue during the July 13 campaign event arrived only days after he urged Congress to extend the Bush tax cuts only to families earning an annual income of less than $250,000.
A federal judge has temporarily blocked a state law that would close down Mississippi’s only abortion clinic, meaning that for the time being the clinic can continue to operate. The law requires that anyone performing an abortion in a clinic be a licensed Ob-Gyn medical doctor, with professional privileges allowing them to admit patients to a local hospital. Lack of such a doctor at the Jackson Women’s Health Organization in Jackson, Mississippi, threatened its closure, until the judge stepped in on July 1 to keep the facility open.
The United Nations is polishing up a global Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) this month in a New York convention that would create a global registry of private ownership of firearms. This treaty — which would also mandate creation of a national collection agency for those guns and is contrary to the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment — has the long-standing and enthusiastic backing of the Obama State Department, headed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The President and Congress are still creating "a multitude of new offices" with officers to "harass our people and eat out their substance." ObamaCare's Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) is a serving of "alphabet soup" that could be hazardous, even fatal, to your health.
In his new book, Plundered: How Progressive Ideology Is Destroying America, Michael S. Coffman, Ph.D., claims that “America is at war” and most Americans “don’t know it.” He exposes the harm being done to America by progressives (socialists) who have achieved great influence in government and in both the Democratic and Republican parties, and he outlines a program to rescue America and return the nation he loves to the principles of good government.
Ron Paul forces failed to secure a plurality of delegates at the state Republican convention in Nebraska, a state that could have guaranteed that Paul be entered into nomination for president and be given a speaking slot at the Republican National Convention in Tampa.
Compelled under the despotic power of a local government in Virginia, one business owner is losing his property under the government’s alleged authority of eminent domain. And it’s not because officials in Norfolk plan to build a new road or a public park; it’s so they can clear the area for new “retail space.”
President Obama’s drone fever is contagious and is spreading worldwide, and the American industries that build the drones are slavering over the chance to supply the demand. Christopher Ames, the director of international strategy development for Pentagon contractor General Atomics Aeronautical, was almost gleeful in his statement to Reuters regarding the opening of a potentially lucrative overseas market for his company’s remote control killing machines.
