‘Guns across the Border’ tells inside story of Operation Wide Receiver CI

‘Guns across the Border’ tells inside story of Operation Wide Receiver CI“Operation Wide Receiver,” a precursor to “Operation Fast and Furious” wherein U.S. guns were bought by straw purchasers and “walked” under the noses of ATF investigators into Mexico, has been the subject of numerous Gun Rights Examiner reports. The central figure in those reports was Mike Detty, a gun writer, a firearms dealer, and the confidential informant who literally risked his life over the course of years to do what he believed was right, only to find the obvious criminals weren’t the only ones he couldn’t trust.

Detty has written about his role in a book that’s so new it doesn’t even officially release until next Wednesday. “Guns across the Border: How and Why the U.S. Government Smuggled Guns into Mexico” tells his story in an easy to read narrative that’s nonetheless engaging from the outset, and that held me throughout.

…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.’”

…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.

NSA whistleblowers: Government spying on every single American

The TSA, DHS and countless other security agencies have been established to keep America safe from terrorist attacks in post-9/11 America. How far beyond that does the feds’ reach really go, though?

The attacks September 11, 2001, were instrumental in enabling the US government to establish counter-terrorism agencies to prevent future tragedies. Some officials say that they haven’t stopped there, though, and are spying on everyone in America — all in the name of national security.

Testimonies delivered in recent weeks by former employees of the National Security Agency suggest that the US government is granting itself surveillance powers far beyond what most Americans consider the proper role of the federal government.

In an interview broadcast on Current TV’s “Viewpoint” program on Monday, former NSA Technical Director William Binney commented on the government’s policy of blanket surveillance, alongside colleagues Thomas Drake and Kirk Wiebe, the agency’s respective former Senior Official and Senior Analyst.

The interview comes on the heels of a series of speeches given by Binney, who has quickly become better known for his whistleblowing than his work with the NSA. In their latest appearance this week, though, the three former staffers suggested that America’s spy program is much more dangerous than it seems.

…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.
