A Failed DREAM + More – Daily Digest

May 20, 2014 by


The Patriot Post ~ THE FOUNDATION “It is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth – and listen to the song of that syren, till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and […]

It’s the Profiling, Stupid!

June 13, 2013 by


Obama, Trust and the NSA By Mark Alexander “All men having power ought to be distrusted…” –James Madison (1787) Last week, Barack Hussein Obama deflected new concerns about the National Security Administration’s intrusive domestic data-mining operations, saying, “If people can’t trust … the executive branch … to make sure we’re abiding by the Constitution, due […]

Did You Know Homeland Security is Monitoring the Internet?

January 13, 2012 by


By Alan Caruba One of the lessons one learns in military basic training is “situational awareness”, a term that reflects the importance of watchfulness in combat. It can mean the difference between life and death. Police practice this as well, looking for people who seem out of place in a neighborhood. The average citizen blithely […]

Why Are We Still Asking Why?

May 9, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba We are now nearly nine years passed the attack on September 11, 2001 that killed some 3,000 Americans in the Twin Towers and Pentagon, and seventeen years since the first attack, a car bomb, failed to bring down the Twin Towers. Jihadists have been killing Americans for a long time; from the […]

Domestic Terror Threat

March 26, 2010 by


In April, 2009, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), headed by Secretary Janet Napolitano, sent out a secret 10 page report to law- enforcement agencies nation wide warning about a potential homegrown terrorist threat from rightwing extremists. The report and other statements by the DHS describe these groups as “anti-government, hate-oriented, paranoid, dangerous, and violent”. […]

Fans Can Feel Safe At Super Bowl XLIV

February 3, 2010 by


If I were attending Super Bowl XLIV, I’d feel security measures the NFL has taken, in spite of a nerve-racking statement from someone who, thank goodness, has no affiliation with the NFL, yet pretends to know something about security. I think that NFL vice-president of security Milt Ahlerich, will do a fine job. Ahlerich had this […]

Why Is Hillary’s State Department Getting UndyBomber Pass?

January 9, 2010 by


By Michelle Malkin Forget about no-fly lists, full-body scanners and air marshals. All the loud recriminations about who should have done what to stop the UndyBomber from boarding a plane to Detroit on Christmas Day miss a more fundamental point: Young, single, rootless foreign Muslim Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab should never, ever have received a temporary […]

Low Blow

January 6, 2010 by


President Obama ended President Bush’s “War on Terrorism” but, apparently America’s enemies have not ended their terror war against the U.S. And although it takes two to tango, it only takes one to make war. President Obama at first called Abdul Mutallab, the Nigerian terrorist, an “isolated extremist,” but al-Qaeda claimed responsibility for the attack, […]

Honolulu, We Have A Problem

December 31, 2009 by


By James Carafano, PhD TonyfromOz prefaces ….. Isn’t it just wonderful how there’s always a way to be able to blame it all back onto George W Bush. There was a “systemic failure” declared the president yesterday (implying the system set up under George W. Bush). That declaration gets Obama off the hook. It also […]

The Public Be Damned!

December 30, 2009 by


By Alan Caruba The most dangerous political trend of 2009 has been the disdain for public opinion that has manifested itself in the White House and among the Democrats who control Congress. Combined with an obvious preference for lying to the public, it portends a difficult year ahead. The assumption of politicians, from the President […]

Homeland Security 101

December 30, 2009 by


By Frank Gaffney, Jr. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano came in for some well-deserved criticism for declaring over the weekend that “the system worked” with respect to Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s effort to blow up the plane he was flying from Amsterdam to Detroit. By Monday, she was backpedaling, acknowledging that “our system did not work […]

The Bigger They Are…

December 29, 2009 by


By Alan Caruba The phrase, “The bigger they are, the harder they fall” comes from the world of boxing, but it applies increasingly to government. Americans have seen that the bigger the government grows, the less able it is to respond to both the major needs of Americans, like national security, and the immediate ones […]

Do The Benefits Of Jihadist Training Camps In America Outweigh The Risks?

October 16, 2009 by


One of our recent articles regarding jihadist training camps here in America stirred up quite a controversy between two individuals who both claim to have been members of America’s intelligence community. One commenter appeared to be trying to make the case that it is better to leave them in place, because the intelligence to be […]

The Department Of Homeland Security Finally Catches Up With The Freedom Medium

October 13, 2009 by


Janet Napolitano and her crew at the Department Of Homeland Security finally found us. She must have stumbled across us, read some of our commentary, watched the Fox News videos, and started to become aware of what we have been talking about for months. And we don’t mind her taking credit for our hard work, we […]

DHS Is Not Invited To Terrorist Convention In Obama’s Hometown

July 21, 2009 by


Recently, nearly 500 members of Hizb-Ut-Tahrir held a convention in a Chicago-area Hilton Hotel. Although not officially recognized as a terrorist organization by the State Department, many terrorism experts, one example of which is shown in the video appearing a little later in this article, consider them to be more of a threat to America’s […]

The Wheels Are Starting To Come Off Of The HOPE And CHANGE Bus

July 7, 2009 by


Yesterday, I submitted  my opinion that the Spirit of ’76 is not dead, where I pointed out that it appears that small-town America is growing weary, perhaps resentful, of President Obama and his Socialist policies. That in and of itself is enough to boost the spirits of a patriotic American like myself. Then I learned […]

Department Of Insecurity: Making America Less Safe From ‘Man-Caused Disasters’

May 13, 2009 by


Frank Gaffney, Jr. Give Janet Napolitano her due. The Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security has taken to heart Barack Obama’s campaign pledges of “change” and “hope.” Unfortunately, the changes she has effected seem generally to be to dismantle sensible Bush-era internal security policies and practices, replacing them with politically correct nostrums and generally […]

You Might Be A “Radicalised Right Wing Extremist” If …

April 15, 2009 by


Michelle Malkin. What and who exactly are President Obama’s homeland security officials afraid of these days? If you are a member of an active conservative group that opposes abortion, favors strict immigration enforcement, lobbies to protect Second Amendment rights, protests big government, advocates federalism or represents veterans who believe in any of the above, the […]

BILLIONS INVESTED IN HOMELAND SECURITY PROGRAMS LACK ADEQUATE OVERSIGHT Jim Kouri CPP In fiscal year 2007, the Department of Homeland Security obligated about $12 billion for acquisitions to support homeland security missions.

Your phone call could be the one that stops the amnesty. Phone your Senators today and tell them to oppose any immigration provisions in the Iraq Supplemental […]
