File: War on Terror

It’s not just for loony conspiracy theorists anymore. President Obama’s decision to withhold the visual evidence of Osama bin Laden’s death has created a fundamental disagreement between the White House and one of the largest journalism organizations in the world. “This information is important for the historical record,” said Michael Oreskes, senior managing editor at […]

The left would be hurling Molotov cocktails nationwide if it had been the Shrub who had ordered attempted an assassination of an American citizen without due process. There would be cries that he’s a war criminal, and that impeachment is necessary in order to protect America. That the president feels he has the authority to […]

According to the government, if you show visibly that you hold the TSA and their procedures in contempt, it’s likely because you’re a terrorist. Or something. CNN: Don’t like the way airport screeners are doing their job? You might not want to complain too much while standing in line. Arrogant complaining about airport security is […]

So Yummy

The tears of our formally hopeful voters for Obama are so yummy. Slate: In reversing one of its last principled positions—that American courts are sufficiently nimble, fair, and transparent to try Mohammed and his confederates—the administration surrendered to the bullying, fear-mongering, and demagoguery of those seeking to create two separate kinds of American law. This […]

Kenneth L. Wainstein, a former Assistant Attorney General: So long as that person has expressed an interest in committing a crime, it’s appropriate for the government to respond by providing the purported means of carrying out that crime so as to make a criminal case against him. How the fuck is the government providing the […]

Nice smackdown, Radley. Well done indeed. Radley Balko in rebuttal of The Nation’s libertarian blaming piece about the backlash against the TSA: As Matt Welch has pointed out, if the accusation that anti-TSA backlash has a partisan aftertaste were directed at conservatives, vanden Heuvel would have a point. But it isn’t. Her awkwardly-structured hedge is […]

The Economist in a piece gauging the “actual” threat to America and Americans via a terrorist attack: Maybe we should take [the utter lack of terrorist plots in which competent Muslim terrorists have attacked America since 9/11] as evidence that “the surge” somehow succeeded in keeping America’s crowded places unexploded. But it’s far more sensible […]

What Obama Needs

Peggy Noonan of The Wall Street Journal on Obama’s lack of reality based thinking when making decisions for everyday Americans: Mr. President, the rebellion isn’t shame-based, it’s John Wayne-based. Yes. Yes it is.

Just for the Proles

Unsurprisingly, many government officials, including congress and other bureaucrats don’t have to pass through TSA security checkpoints at airports and be subjected to the same undignified treatment of us potential terrorists. Cabinet secretaries, top congressional leaders and an exclusive group of senior U.S. officials are exempt from toughened new airport screening procedures when they fly […]

Rule #1 for Statists

When in doubt, blame libertarians. You know, the political party/philosophy which has no power or influence anywhere in America outside of a handful of local and state offices. The Nation: While this issue is certainly important—and offensive—to Americans, we are nonetheless skeptical about how and why this story turned into a national movement. In fact, […]

I Found Me an Expert

Hey Obama! I found me an expert on counterterrorism, and he said your expert is an incompetent piece of shit whose primary job is to seek rent from the government. Popular Mechaincs: Since 9/11, cryptology expert and security consultant Bruce Schneier has been one of the most pointed critics of the government’s anti-terrorism security programs. […]

Expert Opinion

Obama notes that the new TSA molestation of all flyers is necessary, and that they are the most effective means of protecting Americans, stating that it is the advice of “experts” which lead him to institute the new search policies. I wonder if those best means of identifying potential terrorists as stated by the “experts” […]

Can we stop pretending that our government gives a shit about the Bill of Rights?

Some statist shit eater at The Washingtonian in defense of those who carry out the new TSA molestation security procedures: Cute as Goldberg probably thinks his suggestion is, it’s worth remembering a couple of things. TSA screeners are more vulnerable than most federal employees. Unlike their counterparts elsewhere in the civil service, the agency’s employees […]

Orlando Sanford International Airport has decided to opt out from TSA screening. “All of our due diligence shows it’s the way to go,” said Larry Dale, the director of […]
