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 Townhall.com 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. It is the one day each year that we come together in reverence to commemorate the Honored Dead. 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…

In February I wrote about a…

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…

Obama’s latest Big Brother assault on the Constitution

Stop Obama's Executive Orders

Obama took America one step closer to George Orwell’s 1984 and Big Brother when he signed an executive order that gives private sector companies permission to spy on anyone they feel like spying on, while providing legal cover for them to share any information they gather amongst themselves and with the federal government. Staying true to the “never let a serious crisis go to waste” approach he has always taken with his job, Obama cited the recent Sony hacking attack as an example for why he issued the order: “The North Korean cyber-attack on Sony Pictures destroyed data and disabled…
