A new initiative by the Department of Homeland security will allow you (yes, You!) to combat terrorism from the comfort of your own La-Z-Boy. How, you might ask, you fine fine patriot, you? Well, it's kinda like a cross between the Neighborhood Watch and the Gestapo.

Slate writes, "President Bush's TV address [Thursday] was the worst speech he's ever given on the war in Iraq, and that's saying a lot. Every premise, every proposal, nearly every substantive point was sheer fiction. The only question is whether he was being deceptive or delusional."

It's now been two years since the destruction of New Orleans caused by defective flood protection built by the US Army Corps of Engineers following Hurricane Katrina. Check out the video of the "progress."

As some of you know, New Orleans is the home of BSAlert. Stay tuned... This week we're assembling a team of professional photographers and we'll be driving throughout the city taking pictures and will post them before the end of the week. We've opted to do this after the 2-year anniversary because, well, we don't want to think the only time we can call national attention to this problem is on a particular anniversary day.

Many times, the only people who know about acts of government agency or private company fraud are the people who work for those entities. When they gather up enough evidence and courage, they step forward and become whistleblowers. For this brave action in service to their country, they get to watch their lives be ruined.

Nobody Knows What's Going On With The U.S.'s "No Fly" List

The government's terrorist screening database flagged Americans and foreigners as suspected terrorists almost 20,000 times last year. But only a small fraction of those questioned were arrested or denied entry into the United States, raising concerns among critics about privacy and the list's effectiveness.

Supposedly more than 230,000 names are on the list and there are many stories of innocent people getting snagged on the list, but nobody knows how to remove innocent people from the list.

White House Declares Itself a "Freedom" Free Zone

Posted by Pile (7082 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]


The Bush administration argued in court papers this week that the White House Office of Administration is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act as part of its effort to fend off a civil lawsuit seeking the release of internal documents about a large number of e-mails missing from White House servers.

In other words, us taxpayers pay for everything over there, but those guys are no longer able to be scrutinized in any way, and if we don't like it, well I guess we know what Cheney would say.

State-sanctioned teams of computer hackers were able to break through the security of virtually every model of California's voting machines and change results or take control of some of the systems' electronic functions, according to a University of California study released Friday.

The researchers "were able to bypass physical and software security in every machine they tested,'' said Secretary of State Debra Bowen, who authorized the "top to bottom review" of every voting system certified by the state.

Government Hands Proof of Spying To Lawyer, Then Wants It Back

Posted by ueberbill (3900 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]


Recently the 6th U.S. Court of Appeals (no, that's not where the Heretics burn in open tombs for eternity- that's the 6th Circle of Hell, although there are similarities) threw out a case challenging President "Herr" Bush's domestic wiretapping program on the grounds that they could not prove that they were affected by the program. This is fortunate for the government as they are also the one with the list of those they were (allegedly) illegally wiretapping and they aren't eager to go posting that information on their blogs. So that's quite a pickle- you don't have standing to sue the government unless you're affected by the wiretapping and the government won't tell you IF you were affected by the wiretapping so that you can then sue... them. Fortunately for Wendell Belew he got this document one day...

JFK Terrorism Informant Was A Pinched Drug Trafficker

Posted by Pile (4390 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]


Earlier this month, when federal officials announced charges against four men for plotting to blow up gas lines at JFK, a paid "confidential source" was credited with infiltrating the terror cell and gathering critical information. A footnote in a criminal complaint notes that the source had two prior drug convictions and was, through his cooperation, seeking leniency in sentencing on the latter trafficking rap.

It seems this so-called valuable informant was a drug dealer who was caught with $2M in cocaine, tried to murder a rival drug lord in New York, and was looking to get his own sentence reduced in the process of turning over these goofball terrorists which nobody in their right mind thought were capable of doing as much damage as the media claimed.

The Smoking Gun has learned the identity of this informant and the more you know, the more you understand how "reliable" this guy likely was.

Freedom Fence Not So Fancy

Posted by ueberbill (5480 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]


James Campbell, a retired Arizona homebuilder, decided that investing for the future is important. But rather than put his money into selfish ventures that might make him or his descendants any money, he wanted to make America secure. For that noble purpose, he took out a loan and gave $100,000 of it to the Minutemen Civil Defense Corps (MCDC) to help build an "Israel-style" fence around our borders to the south (I had an Israel-style reuben the other day--MUCH more delicious than the fence). But the MCDC, which has failed to staunch the incoming tide of illegal entrants into this country, also kinda failed to keep up its end of the bargain fence-wise. The fence, which was to be made of steel tube and be otherwise Israeli fence-like (I have no idea what that's supposed to be--perhaps bearded), is in fact rather dinky and not what Campbell was promised by the founder of the MCDC, Mr. Chris Simcox. So Mr. Campbell is undertaking another patriotic act--he's suing.
