Gen. Wesley Clark wants U.S. citizens put in internment camps

July 22, 2015
Japanese internment camp

Retired General Wesley Clark, a former presidential candidate for the Democrat party and the past supreme allied commander of NATO, was a vocal critic of George W. Bush’s response to the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon; saying that Bush overreacted in a way that violated the civil liberties of everyday Americans. Constitutional rights? That was so yesterday. In a recent interview on MSNBC, Clark called for the use of domestic internment camps—like the ones used for Japanese Americans during World War II—to be used to round-up Americans who are disloyal, and potentially disloyal, to the…

TSA fails background checks

Over the past few months there have been several alarming reports about the Transportation Safety Administration–the word “safety” is apparently a relative word–more commonly referred to as the TSA. Some of the recent revelations in a story included: Documents detailing alleged sexual assaults by TSA agents at airports across the country. Thousands of missing TSA uniforms and security badges. Failure by the TSA to prevent potential terror attacks, detect explosives and other weapons in 96% of undercover tests. Failure to screen dozens of airport workers who ended up having ties to terrorism. Americans are outraged, and lawmakers claim to…

Memorial Day 2015

While it’s always appropriate to show honor and appreciation to members of the military, I want to provide this reminder to my readers: today is not Veteran’s Day.

We commiserate with the Gold Star families, old and new, who have paid the ultimate price to ensure that the United States of America will endure. As Americans, it’s important to acknowledge the sacrifices of the men and women in uniform that died to defend her. Civil society only survives in a world of…

Majority favors limiting Fifth Amendment and killing Americans

May 6, 2015
Fifth Amendment - modified

The attack on the Constitution by every branch of government on every level — federal, state, and local — is troubling to say the least. But even more troubling is a recent upward trend indicating a willingness by many Americans to surrender their constitutional rights to government under the misguided notion that doing so will make their world a safer place. In January I wrote about a Washington Post – ABC News poll that showed how 63% of Americans were willing to give up their personal privacy rights in order to help battle terrorism. In February I wrote about a…

New poll: Voters prefer dictator to the Constitution

February 23, 2015

Actually, there are a few Republicans and unaffiliated voters who would be OK with it too, but I’ll get to that later. It’s no secret that Obama couldn’t get away with his dictatorial approach to immigration and health care if the Democrats didn’t have his back, but a new poll seems to indicate that they are willing to take things to a whole new level. While Obama has limited his unconstitutional overreach to ignoring or rewriting federal statutes—such as immigration and Obamacare mandates—Democrats are starting to wonder: Hey! Why don’t we rewrite some federal court rulings too? According to the latest…
