WASHINGTON (AP) - A Nigerian man boarded a Virgin Atlantic airplane last week with an invalid boarding pass—making it through a federal security checkpoint where travelers must show identification and their boarding passes.

After the man, Olajide Olwaseun Noibi, got through security, the airline let him onto the plane even…

CAIR Loses Nonprofit Status!

Posted on Politico-By Ben Smith-On June 23, 2011:

The Council on American-Islamic Relations has lost its nonprofit status, according to the Internal Revenue Service.

The civil rights group, long accused of ties to radical Islam, is on a list of 275,000 organizations who have not filed the requisite paperwork with the IRS to maintain nonprofit status. Tax law requires annual disclosure of assets, expenditures and salaries for 501© nonprofits. Both CAIR and…

Time For Congress to Lead on the Debt Ceiling!

Posted on The Heritage Foundation-On June 30, 2011:

As we saw at yesterday’s press conference, President Obama is not going to lead on the debt ceiling issue. Nor is he going to compromise or play a mediating role. He is more interested in blaming others for his troubles, demagoguing other solutions and running for re-election.

This is why conservatives need to be reminded not to yield to scare tactics.  Last night, our sister organization,…

Ding Bat Senator Durbin Sees Illegal Alien As Future President!

Apart from the fact that he is woefully ignorant of the U.S. Constitution, Senator Durbin seems unaware of the origins of the community organizer who is currently posing as U.S. president.



As reported at the reference, the never- to- be- mistaken- for- a-Mensa member Senator from Illinois, embarrassed himself with this asinine…

The Black Hole

“While Obama promises the world and emases more money ( five bucks each from millions of the known and from ‘mystery’ donors millions) it is easy not to notice endless elephants running through the living room destroying everything in site."

 

A History Channel discussion on black holes last night finds me this morning with the question of the meaning of life.  Whole galaxies disappearing in black holes, the question: Is the basic information that created the galaxy retained or…

Obama Is Out Of Touch!

OBAMA LAUNCHES CLASS WARFARE...

Kids versus corporate jets. If President Obama's news conference accomplished anything on Wednesday afternoon, it underscored, in striking tones, his strategy for winning the debt ceiling fight with Republicans: Make it a clash of classes.



Rich versus Poor.  Us versus Them.



Those who support children, food safety, medical research and, presumably, puppies and apple pie…

Is Being Poor in America Unconstitutional?

By John W. Lillpop





Being poor is no fun. As Mae West allegedly once said, “I’ve Been Rich and I’ve Been Poor. Rich is better!”



Right on, Mae!



Being poor is also un-American, anti-capitalism and should be a serious crime.



Being poor in America is a choice. A very bad one.



Most poverty can be attributed to sloth and ignorance,…

Spanish "Imposition" Mars Soccer Match, Graduation!

 By John W. Lillpop

 

Spanish-language apologists in denial refuse to admit that Latinos, including millions of illegal aliens who should not even be here, refuse to assimilate into American culture by learning and speaking English.



The lie to those denials was exposed in abundance by two recent events, one in California the other in Nevada.



The first involved a soccer match between the U.S. and Mexican teams in Los Angeles. Under…

Five Ways Obama Is Circumventing the Legislative Branch!

For all of candidate Barack Obama’s campaign rhetoric promising to respect Congress’s authority to draft the nation’s laws, President Obama has demonstrated a persistent pattern of circumventing the legislative branch via administrative fiat whenever his agenda stalls.

Marxist theory: Hate Your Neighbor

Glenn Beck laments the hate being exhibited.

In a victory for President Barack Obama, a Senate panel voted Tuesday to approve U.S. participation in the military campaign against Libya and Moammar Gadhafi's forces.



The 14-5 vote in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee stood in sharp contrast to the House's overwhelmingly rejection of a similar step last week, muddling the message about congressional support for the commander in chief's actions and the NATO-led operation.

ALERT ALERT

OMG!! -> Government Now Wants To Seize Your Car For Going 5MPH Over The Limit

We’ve discussed this on and off for several years now. Civil asset forfeiture is a legal process that allows the government to seize assets and cash from citizens without any due process or judicial oversight.

You don’t even have to be charged with a crime. You are assumed guilty unless you can somehow prove your innocence.

Of course, not everyone has this ability… if you aren’t local, state, or federal law enforcement, this is called stealing, and you go to prison.

But the government is actually a bigger problem than common thieves.

A 2015 report showed that law enforcement used civil asset forfeiture to steal more from US residents than every thief, robber, and burglar in America combined.

About $4.5 BILLION worth of cash, cars, homes, and other property is taken by civil asset forfeiture each year – hundreds of millions more than common criminals steal.

And it happens at every level. Your local cop can use civil asset forfeiture just like your state trooper. And then any one of the armed agents of the US government—from the FBI to the Fish and Wildlife Service—can rob you for whatever reason they want.

This travesty continues to grow because the cops who take your stuff get to keep it. Police departments and government agencies around the country depend on civil asset forfeiture to boost their budgets.

Cops will literally keep some of the cars they take as squad cars. And they make a fortune auctioning off the houses, boats, and anything else they confiscate.

Obviously this gives cops an incentive to steal, whether or not they actually think the property was used in a crime, or acquired illegally. Remember, civil asset forfeiture adds billions every year to their bottom line.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court heard arguments in a case of civil asset forfeiture.

Tyson Timbs was convicted of selling a small amount of drugs to an undercover police officer. He was sentenced to house arrest, and paid about $1,200 in fines.

But then police used civil asset forfeiture to take his $42,000 Land Rover which Timbs purchased with money from a life insurance policy after his father died. The money did not come from selling drugs, or any other illegal activity.

Timbs sued, and the case made its way to the Supreme Court, because every lower court in Indiana said the forfeiture was perfectly legit.

The case revolves around whether or not the seizure of the Land Rover was an excessive fine under the 8th amendment, and whether or not this protection against excessive fines applies to state governments.

And the public got some crazy insight into the government’s position.

The Indiana Solicitor General was arguing in favor of civil asset forfeiture when Justice Stephen Breyer asked him a hypothetical.

Breyer asked, if a state needs revenue, could it force someone to forfeit their Bugatti, Mercedes, or Ferrari for speeding? Even if they were going just 5 miles per hour over the speed limit?

And the utterly appalling answer from the Indiana Solicitor General was, yes.

That’s right… the official government position is that they can steal any amount of your property in “connection” with any crime whatsoever, no matter how trivial the crime may be… even exceeding the speed limit by 5 miles per hour.

This is how overbearing and authoritarian the government has become in the land of the free.

This is how much power your local cop has… and the power only grows as you go to state, and federal officials.

If there is any solace in any of this, it is that the other Supreme Court Justices were reportedly laughing at this exchange.

The justices seemed incredulous that Indiana’s top lawyer was using such absurd assertions and flimsy reasoning in his arguments.

So, for now, we can keep our cars if we get pulled over for speeding. But that may not always be the case…

Depending on how this is ruled, it could pave the way for even more egregious abuses of power… or it could curb the practice, and reign in these thieves in uniforms.

Just understand where the government is coming from. These politicians, bureaucrats and officers think they can do whatever they want. Absolutely anything goes, with no limitation whatsoever.

And that makes it a little tough to feel like you really live in the land of the free.
