The TSA's Secret Watchlist for Travelers Who Don't Kowtow
Post Date: 2019-02-17 15:23:40 by hondo68
I need a witness! exclaimed the worried Transportation Security Administration screener at Reagan Washington National Airport a few months ago. Because I had forgotten to remove my belt before going through a TSA scanner, he explained that I must undergo an enhanced patdown. I told him that if he jammed my groin, Id file a formal complaint against him. So he summoned his supervisor to keep an eye on the proceedings. After his white-suited boss arrived on the scene, I announced that I too, needed a witness. The boss bureaucrat assured me there was a video camera recording the scene. But does it have audio? I demanded to know. Thats ...

Post Date: 2019-02-17 11:57:02 by Deckard
Ann Coulter says shes thankful President Trump distanced himself from her on Friday after he disappointed her once again by signing a bipartisan border deal while simultaneously declaring a national emergency to fund his wall. I havent spoken to her. I dont follow her. I dont talk to her, but the press loves to bring up the name Ann Coulter, Trump told reporters from the Rose Garden Friday morning. Probably if I did speak to her, she would be very nice, but I just dont have time to speak to her, he added, before saying he thinks shes gone off the reservation when it comes to her increasingly loud criticism of him. ...

Television viewers are inundated with drug ads from Big Pharma. Its a flood. Have you ever heard of these drugs? Otezla, Xeljanz, Namzaric, Keytruda, Breo, Cosentyz? Not likely. If you have, do you know what conditions they treat? Highly unlikely. But there they are, splashed in commercials. Why?

If Pharma can pay enough TOTAL money for ads, for ALL drugs, and dominate the allotted TV time for commercials, it can control the newsand that is exactly what it wants to do. ...
Drug convictions overturned for 10 framed by Chicago police sergeant: 'He took everything from me'

Derrick Lewis knew he wasnt guilty of committing drug-related crimes in the mid-2000s. But he pleaded guilty to the cases in his mid-20s because he knew he faced the possibility of decades in prison, he said.Lewis, now 39 years old, didnt have money to hire a private attorney to help fight the allegations against him. He ended up doing two stints in prison on drug-related cases that since have been tied to disgraced former Chicago police Sgt. Ronald Watts.And no matter how innocent you is, you dont want to think about the possibility of being locked up for 30 years, Lewis said Monday at the Leighton Criminal Court Building.

CONFUSION: Pelosi wishes ‘Happy Thanksgiving’— on — on Valentine’s Day
Post Date: 2019-02-17 08:59:58 by IbJensen
What is wrong with Nancy Pelosi? The House Speaker held a public bill signing on Thursday, and during her remarks, she wished reporters a Happy Thanksgiving. It was Valentines Day. She was a mere 84 days late. Watch: The woman second in line to the presidency didnt correct herself. Earlier in the day, the House Speaker gave her weekly brief press conference, she could be seen suffering brain freezes, confusing millions and billions, and at one point, caught herself holding up only five fingers while talking about six bills. After suffering an early brain freeze while talking about her colleagues being in North Carolina for a funeral, Pelosi struggled to ...
5 insane provisions in the amnesty omnibus bill
Post Date: 2019-02-17 00:43:21 by hondo68
Before getting into the details of this crazy omnibus bill, its important to recognize that we dont understand all the details. The worst provisions are written in vague language ensconced in an 1,169-page bill, which has already been posted online in two different versions (the first was 10 pages shorter). That is exactly why Democrats are salivating to vote on this within a few hours of passage, which is exactly why Trump has a responsibility to oppose it immediately and demand at least a short-term clean continuing resolution so that he can digest the consequences of this bill. If he cannot make that simple demand, which would not even trigger a phony shutdown, then his ...

The no-knock search warrant for the drug raid that killed a middle-aged couple in their Houston home on January 28 seems to have been based on a "controlled buy" that never happened by a confidential informant who does not exist. According to a February 8 search warrant affidavit obtained by KPRC, the NBC station in Houston, investigators looking into the raid at 7815 Harding Street, the home of Dennis Tuttle and Rhogena Nicholas, have been unable to identify the C.I. who supposedly bought heroin from Tuttle the day before.

Nancy Pelosi Earned Fortune on IPO Stock Through ‘Illegal’ Insider Trading
Post Date: 2019-02-15 08:27:09 by IbJensen
The new Nazi Party, the party of treason, is also the party of deep and unrestrained corruption. While the Democrats spin endless fantasies about supposed collusion between Trump and Russia, the corruption is pandemic on their side of the aisle. The fortune that Nancy Pelosi has amassed clearly hasnt come from her Congressional salary. So where has it come from? There needs to be a full, searching, serious investigation of Pelosis finances, but there wont be, because her fellow Democrats are as corrupt as she is, and Congressional Republicans are spineless wimps and RINOs.

Trump’s Absurd Claim that Americans Are Free from Government Coercion

This article was originally published by James Bovard at the Mises Institute In his State of the Union address Tuesday night, President Trump received rapturous applause from Republicans for his declaration: America was founded on liberty and independence not government coercion, domination, and control. We are born free, and we will stay free. But this uplifting sentiment cannot survive even a brief glance at the federal statute book or the heavy-handed enforcement tactics by federal, state, and local bureaucracies across the nation. In reality, the threat of government punishment permeates Americans daily lives more than ever before: The number of federal crimes ...

There’s Nothing Ridiculous About Trains Replacing Planes
Post Date: 2019-02-14 09:26:43 by Willie Green
High-speed rail in California was a disaster. But theres a better way. What a train wreck. Last week, the rollout of the Green New Deal brought sustained attention to the idea of high-speed rail in the United States for the first time since the early years of the Obama administration. Various Democratic presidential contenders endorsed, albeit in the vaguest possible terms, the idea of getting more people to more places via faster and more dependable train service. The office of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went one further, suggestingby mistake, apparentlythat a souped-up rail system could replace domestic air travel. Doh. A GOP meme was born. The authors ...

Post Date: 2019-02-14 07:32:42 by Deckard
Despite massive gun restrictions rolling out across the country, for the past two years, the number of concealed carry permit holders has continued to soar. A study conducted at the end of last year showed that the number of Americans licensed to carry a concealed weapon is now over 17 milliona whopping 273 percent increase since 2007. If we were to believe the rhetoric that more people carrying guns would lead to more crime, there would be a correlation showing an increase in crime among concealed carry holders. However, a study conducted by the Crime Prevention and Research Center, which examined these numbers, found the opposite. Whats more, not only are concealed carry ...
