On Wednesday, the day after President Obama was re-elected, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) leaned on the president to keep one of the first promises he made after being elected in 2008.  In its letter, the ACLU encouraged President Obama to shutter the infamous detention facility at Guantanamo Bay. The request was couched in congratulatory tones praising the president for his Election Night victory.

President Obama, flush from his Election Night victory, has charged another former government employee with violating the Espionage Act, a linguist for the Navy in Bahrain named James Hitselberger.

The reelection of President Barrack Hussein Obama may coincide with an escalation from covert to open warfare by the United States and its NATO allies against the Assad regime in Syria. Reports from the United Kingdom indicate that mere hours after Obama’s reelection, British Prime Minister David Cameron was already calling for the United States and its allies to do more to “shape the opposition” into a more effective force, and speed the process of overthrowing the government of Syria.

In a recent Washington Post article covering the drone war, White House counterterrorism “czar” John Brennan was quoted as saying, “There are aspects of the Yemen program that I think are a true model of what I think the U.S. counterterrorism community should be doing” to fight the spread of al-Qaeda in Northern Africa.

As recent events have demonstrated, there is very little constitutional difference between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.

U.S. troops are indeed working with the Mexican government under the guise of fighting a war on drugs, the Department of Defense acknowledged in the wake of explosive allegations about the U.S. government’s role in the bloody conflict raging throughout Mexico. However, multiple official sources on both sides of the border have claimed that the cooperation goes much deeper than simply training and equipping Mexican forces.

Four years after discovering recorded drone video feed on militant laptops, nearly half of the Pentagon's drone fleet is still unencrypted.

The U.S. government allowed Mexican drug cartel hit men working as “confidential informants” for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to murder people inside the United States, an American federal law enforcement supervisor told the private intelligence firm Stratfor in e-mails released by WikiLeaks. ICE neither confirmed nor denied the allegations when contacted by The New American.

The Supreme Court will decide whether to allow a constitutional challenge to the government's warrantless surveillance to go forward.  

North Carolina Representative Sue Myrick (R) has been very vocal in warning of a Hezbollah presence in Mexico, and in urging the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to step up surveillance of terrorists there. She joins a host of concerned Americans who are worried about the porosity of the nation’s southern border-and continually cautions that border issues aren’t just about immigrants seeking a better life, but about easy access that terrorists have to America.
