The Identity Ecosystem: Obama’s Plan for Internet Control (Right Side News)
[…] if Congress falls in line with the Obama Administration’s dictates, all online communications services—including communications sent using texting platforms, BlackBerries, social networking sites, and other “peer to peer” communications software such as Skype—will be required to use technologies that would make it easier for the government to collect private communications and decode encrypted messages that Americans send. That doesn’t sound like any kind of “change we can believe in” to me.
When all is said and done, it doesn’t really matter what party controls the White House or Congress, because the objective of our bureaucratic government remains the same: total control—of the nation, of the internet, and ultimately of you and me.
Russian Cruise Missiles on US Soil (YourDaddy’s Politics)
A Russian weapons company is marketing a new missile system that is hidden inside an ordinary shipping container. It can turn a ship, train or truck into a long range missile launcher. Channel Two Action News anchor Justin Farmer investigated the threat and found officials at the Port of Savannah had never heard of the Club K Missile system.
It sounds like something out of a James Bond movie. A hidden cruise missile that can transform a shipping container into a missile launcher. The problem is it’s real and a Russian weapons company is advertising it for sale to anyone who has the cash to pay for it. Channel Two Action News went to the Port of Savannah to find out how the feds are combating this potential threat. They did not even know about it, until Farmer told them.
[…] Mexican trucks are known to be overweight and lacking in safety regulations we consider essential, such as anti-lock brakes. Mexico doesn’t have national databases that track drivers’ records, background checks, drug usage, and arrests, and it’s known to be easy to get a commercial driver’s license with a bribe.
Nevertheless, Obama’s Transportation Secretary, Ray LaHood, has announced he wants to admit Mexican trucks, and he thinks he can appease Congress by presenting on January 6 what he calls a “concept document.” It is two pages of bureaucratic pablum that does nothing to assure the safety of Americans on our highways and roads.
Gosnell, Baby Feet Kick the Nation – UPDATES (The Anchoress)
A massacre perpetrated by a deranged man is not about the deranged man; it’s about “rhetoric.” But a massacre perpetrated by an abortion provider whose violations against laws of the nation and of humanity were overlooked for years is “not about abortion.” It’s about criminal behavior, and that’s all. But some of our most prominent politicians have voted against the very bill — the “born alive” bill — that defines such behavior as criminal. Meaning, I guess, that if only enough politicians had voted with Sen. Barack Obama, Gosnell’s behavior would not be “criminal” at all, and therefore we wouldn’t even be talking about it?
