Silhouette Of Security Cctv Camera With Sunset Background

The Rise of the Invasive Security Camera – Do They Really Stop Crimes?

The surveillance camera has become particularly controversial in terms of its usefulness, practicality and success rate. While skeptics warn against these devices’ violation of civil liberties and individual privacy, law enforcement officials counter that real-time video footage can further investigative efforts and apprehend perpetrators (Urban Institute). I can totally understand wanting to utilize every tool to catch criminals, and even to deter crimes. But, not when it's in violation of our individual privacy and civil liberty! (Note: there is a difference between the government … [Read More...]

Gun Confiscation

Patriot Group Stand Up Against Gun Confiscation

10 years ago if someone had told me that citizens must register their firearms or face arrest, I'd have said they were crazy.  5 years ago, I'd have said, "I wouldn't put it past Obama."  And now here we are.  The bitch about it is that it's the state of Connecticut infringing on the people's right to bear arms.  I suppose that's better than the feds doing it. Here we have a situation where the vast majority of gun owners are good citizens, with only a small minority who are criminals.  But the leftist thugs of Connecticut have decided to make all gun owners criminal, lest they surrender to … [Read More...]

Nullification

The Age of Ignorance – Nullification Deniers!

This is The Age of Ignorance. Our “intellectuals” can’t think. Our “scholars” parrot each other. The self-educated fixate on idiotic theories. Our People despise Truth and disseminate lies. Nullification deniers such as Matthew Spalding of Heritage Foundation, Jarrett Stepman of Human Events, law professor Randy Barnett, David Barton of Wallbuilders, and history professor Allen C. Guelzo, say that nullification by States of unconstitutional acts of the federal government is unlawful and impossible. They make the demonstrably false assertions that: States don’t have the right to nullify … [Read More...]

The Obama Agenda

The Obama Agenda – Tyranny

The History channel’s “Sons of Liberty” series may have been short on facts but they did a great job of capturing the colonist’s passion. That was the secret to the colonies’ victory, passion, dedication, and commitment. That’s what President Obama brings to the table, passion for his agenda, commitment to his transformation aka revolution, dedication to each piece of his plan. His ultimate goal, to radically reconfigure America, consumes all his energy. He and his government, because it’s no longer the people’s government, work tirelessly to complete each step of America’s … [Read More...]

Not a Good Time to be Jewish

Not since the 1940’s has it been so dangerous to be Jewish. The shooting in Denmark, the shootings at the Jewish Grocery in Paris (that Obama said was random) and the other anti-Semitism activities spreading across Europe have led Israeli and European Jewish leaders asking European Jews to come home … [Read More...]

AMNESTY – THE GREAT AMERICAN HEIST

You’re Asking The Wrong Questions

You remember that smug teacher who would draw you into an argument, play devil's advocate, then verbally jab and punch until you finally screamed uncle?  Then that teacher would turn the debate on its head with a single sentence, "You're asking the wrong questions?" As annoying as that … [Read More...]

I recently sat down to watch one of my favorite movies, Chicago, for the 127th time (or thereabouts) and I was suddenly struck by a bizarre revelation: President Barrack Obama, who learned the art of politics in Chicago, is the real life Billy Flynn. For those of you who need reminding – Chicago … [Read More...]

Healthcare Costs – Hear What Obama Administration Now Admits!

So Obama spent three years telling us, "Under my plan the average family will see their healthcare costs reduced by $2500." That's an AVERAGE he was talking about - that means a bunch of people will save even more! But then there is this: So tell me - any idea why this wasn't the tune Obama … [Read More...]

What’s Going On Now

Terrorism & ISIS are Americans’ #1 Concern

The American public is swirling with many controversies, concerns and political opinions. People are taking to social media to voice concerns about Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, party rules at the Republican National Convention and currently the buzz is due to the Democratic National Convention's lack of flying Old Glory - although there have been Palestinian flags flying and even a former USSR flag was spotted.

How Security Cameras are Changing America’s Privacy Landscape Forever

In a world where new technology is always thought of as nothing but good, the advent of the surveillance camera - also known as closed-circuit television (CCTV) - was celebrated as a huge advancement in safety and law enforcement technology in the 1980s. The cameras were first used by local and city governments to monitor public streets, but businesses with high rates of theft quickly began implementing them as well.   Today, use of … [Read More...]

Rubio vs Paul: Isolationists We Are Not

America was not, is not, and cannot be an isolationist nation. Our Founding Fathers did not create an isolationist nation; our Constitution does not advocate isolationism; and it cannot be otherwise. During a recent Republican presidential debate candidate Sen. Marco Rubio accused Sen. Rand Paul of being an “isolationist.” The facts are Senator Paul has given no reason to believe he is an isolationist. While I have not yet made my decision who … [Read More...]

A Novelist’s Invitation Down the Road to Tyranny

Back in 2000, when I wrote FORTY DAYS AT KAMAS, I often received comments that the dystopian future America I described in that novel, with its corrective labor camps, Department of State Security and President-for-Life, was too remote a possibility to be believed. Those comments stopped coming years ago. Today, my readers sometimes ask: “How far do you think we’ve come on the road to Kamas?” The broad outline of my answer remains the same … [Read More...]
