…that cost tax payers $6 million for nothing.
The DHS is the biggest waste of taxpayer money created this century. The EPA and the DOE are tops in my mind.
The TSA is a strong arm of the DHS that is absolutely useless and the airports would be safer without them. Private security would work better and be more efficient as well as more courteous to boot.

$5.8 Mil “Text Against Terror” Fails To Provide Any Tips

The U.S. government has blown nearly $6 million on an experimental “anti-terrorism” program in New Jersey that encourages the public to send tips via text message from their cellular phones.

Since it was launched in mid-2011, the federally-funded “Text Against Terror” project has produced no credible tips, according to a local newspaper report that reveals the feds have poured $5.8 million into the initiative. Police in New Jersey claim 307 tips have been texted so far and that includes people “testing the system.”

Of the 307 text messages, 71 “referred to something regarding homeland security,” according to the New Jersey police chief quoted in the story. The majority of the 71 texts were investigated, the chief says, and “eliminated as a cause for concern.” In other words, the costly program, funded with a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) public awareness grant, is a cash cow that’s accomplished nothing.

This country is turning into the Soviet Union more and more every day. Our freedoms are being continually eroded in the name of ‘security’ and the public safety.

The TSA has moved beyond the airports and are now in bus terminals, train stations, and are now expanding into areas that are not even related to transportation.

Now they are moving into the streets of America.
When will it end?
When will the assholes in Congress step in and stop the DHS’ takeover of America?

This is starting to look more and more like a Soviet style police state.
I’m fucking tired of it and our douche bags in Congress need to be tossed out on their collective asses if they don’t stop this in its tracks. Defund TSA, fire Napolitano’s ass. fire Obama, fire them all.

TSA Rifles Through Bags, Conducts Pat Downs At Paul Ryan Event

Government agents moving out of airports and into the streets
Steve Watson

For some time we have been warning that the TSA is systematically moving beyond the nation’s airports and conducting operations on the streets of America.

The latest example of this kind of activity occurred at an event organized by Mitt Romney’s GOP running mate Paul Ryan this past weekend in The Villages, Florida.

The Shark Tank blog reports that TSA officers showed up alongside Secret Service and the local Sumter County Sheriff’s Office, and proceeded to do what they do like no one else does.

“A big WTF is in order here.” the blog notes, adding “We heard that the TSA was going to expand its ummm, ‘reach,’ but to assist in political campaigns is quite the jump in broadening their ‘transportation security horizons.’”

…should be renamed Department of Hyper Sexuality under Nepolitano.

Why am I not surprised.

These are still just allegations, but I don’t think someone that high up in the food chain would initiate something like this without some merit to it.

Janet Napolitano-run Homeland Security treated male staffers like lapdogs, federal discrimination lawsuit charges
By Joseph Straw , Reuven Blau AND Rich Schapiro

James Hayes Jr., who now is New York’s top Homeland Security cop, claims Napolitano filled top spots in Washington, D.C., with two of her gal pals who were bent on tormenting male employees.

Looks like the Department of Homeland Security could be renamed the Department of Hyper Sexuality.

A blistering federal discrimination suit accuses agency honcho Janet Napolitano of turning the department into a female-run “frat house” where male staffers were banished to the bathrooms and routinely humiliated.

…for the upcoming elections.

Looks like the government is starting to gear up for riots when Obama loses in November. It’s not surprising to me, but it is telling.

Enjoy what’s left of your freedoms, if by some unforeseen event, Obama wins, then freedom is pretty much a fantasy.

DHS gears up for civil unrest prior to presidential elections

The Department of Homeland Security has ordered masses of riot gear equipment to prepare for potential significant domestic riots at the Republican National Convention, Democratic National Convention and next year’s presidential inauguration.

The DHS submitted a rushed solicitation to the Federal Business Opportunities site on Wednesday, which is a portal for Federal government procurement requisitions over $25,000. The request gave the potential suppliers only one day to submit their proposals and a 15-day delivery requirement to Alexandria, Virginia.

As the brief explains, “the objective of this effort is to procure riot gear to prepare for the 2012 Democratic and Republican National Conventions, the 2013 Presidential Inauguration and other future similar activities.”

The total amount ordered is about 150 sets of riot helmets, thigh and groin protectors, hard-shell shin guards and other riot gear.

U.S. Army Purchases Riot Gear As Fears Over Civil Unrest Grow

Paul Joseph Watson
It’s not just the Department of Homeland Security that is gearing up for the prospect of civil unrest in America. The U.S. Army also recently purchased a stock of riot gear including batons, face masks and body shields.

As we reported last week, the DHS has put out an urgent solicitation for hundreds of items of “riot gear,” in preparation for expected unrest at the upcoming Republican National Convention, Democratic National Convention and next year’s presidential inauguration.

In a previous solicitation, the U.S. Army also put out a contract for riot gear to be delivered to the United States Military Academy at West Point in New York.

…as tits on a boar hog. But, then, you already knew that!

Their latest buffoonery comes to us out of Boston. Where an illegal alien was running a flight school where 25 other illegal aliens attended, six of them received their pilots license.

Oh, and as usual, it wasn’t DHS/TSA that discovered the problem, it was once again discovered by local law enforcement. This time through a traffic stop. Read on…

TSA Let 25 Illegal Aliens Attend Flight School Owned by Illegal Alien
By Edwin Mora

(CNSNews.com) — The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) approved flight training for 25 illegal aliens at a Boston-area flight school that was owned by yet another illegal alien, according to the Government Accountability Office.

The illegal-alien flight-school attendees included eight who had entered the country illegally and 17 who had overstayed their allowed period of admission into the United States, according to an audit by the GAO.

Six of the illegal aliens were actually able to get pilot’s licenses.

Discovery of the trouble at the flight school began when local police–not federal authorities–pulled over the owner of the school on a traffic violation and were able to determine that he was an illegal alien.

WTF, over?

By The Armorer

bubbas at Homeland Defense up to these days? Well, they bought a boatload of ammunition (driving up prices for all of us, dangit. It’s hard to compete with the government when they can just print the money they need). Well, it turns out once you buy all that ammo, you need something to shoot it out of. 7000 somethings. So, they’ve asked vendors to submit bids for “Personal Defense Weapons,” PDW for short. PDWs are simply the latest way of saying “carbine” but the marketers liked it because it sounds so modern, whereas, well, Custer’s troops had carbines. Eurocops have had these for some time, as they were developed for that purpose.

Here at the Castle, we have demo’d a PDW, the FN PS90, in it’s legal-for-civilians form with 16″ barrel.

Make this shit go viral people!

Don’t think the government isn’t watching you. Just put a few words on your blog and you are being watched.  I must be high up on their list then. Those assholes in Homeland Security can insist all they want that they are just “looking for genuine threats,” but I call bullshit on that. Get out of my blog you fucks. DHS sucks dick. That should put me on their list if I wasn’t already on it. Ever heard of free speech assholes? I don’t call them Department of Homeland Stupidity for nothing!

Revealed: Hundreds of words to avoid using online if you don’t want the government spying on you (and they include ‘pork’, ‘cloud’ and ‘Mexico’)

Department of Homeland Security forced to release list following freedom of information request

Agency insists it only looks for evidence of genuine threats to the U.S. and not for signs of general dissent

By Daniel Miller

The Department of Homeland Security has been forced to release a list of keywords and phrases it uses to monitor social networking sites and online media for signs of terrorist or other threats against the U.S.

The intriguing the list includes obvious choices such as ‘attack’, ‘Al Qaeda’, ‘terrorism’ and ‘dirty bomb’ alongside dozens of seemingly innocent words like ‘pork’, ‘cloud’, ‘team’ and ‘Mexico’.

Released under a freedom of information request, the information sheds new light on how government analysts are instructed to patrol the internet searching for domestic and external threats.

The words are included in the department’s 2011 ‘Analyst’s Desktop Binder’ used by workers at their National Operations Center which instructs workers to identify ‘media reports that reflect adversely on DHS and response activities’.

Great day for many airports and travelers. The TSA is getting jerked the hell off of airline security and replaced by private security. This will go a long way in making American travel not only friendlier, but more safe as well. The TSA is useless and an insult to the American people.

Senate Passes Bill Allowing Airports To Evict TSA Screeners

Legislation could lead to despised federal agency being marginalized from aviation security

Paul Joseph WatsonInfowars.com
Tuesday, February 7, 2012

The Senate has passed legislation that includes a provision allowing airports to replace TSA screeners with private security, opening the door for the widely loathed federal agency to be marginalized from aviation security altogether.

The bill was primarily concerned with how the Federal Aviation Authority would be funded for the next four years, but also included measures that would force the TSA to reconsider applications from airports to replace TSA workers with their own privately hired screeners.

“Security companies would have an easier time winning contracts to operate airport checkpoints,” reports Businessweek.

More and more the government takes away our freedoms. More and more until we have no more freedoms. If you think this is idle chat, I suggest that you start paying attention. The Democrats and their enablers (media) will continue to nibble away at our freedoms, until they are completely gone.

The analogy of the frog in a pot comes to mind. Just keep turning up the heat a little at a time until the water is boiling, then it’s too late for the frog.

It’s time to wake up frogs.

DHS is overstepping its bounds. This administration and their lackeys continue to violate the Constitution at every opportunity.

Obama must be defeated in the next election, or this country’s freedoms will be surely lost.
