Family Security Matters
The dreaded so-called “surveillance state” was held in contempt by many in the media until President Obama announced that he would extend it to police officers. All of a sudden, the idea of the National Security Agency (NSA) targeting the thin blue line between the public and the criminals became a great, “progressive” idea.
Obama euphemistically calls it the “Body Worn Camera Partnership Program ,” and insists it will “help strengthen accountability and transparency.”
Perhaps these body-worn cameras ought to be used by high-level government officials, in order to sniff out corruption such as the location of missing IRS emails.
The Daily Sheeple
The Fourth Circuit handed down an interesting Fourth Amendment decision in United States v. Robertson, involving a consent search at a bus shelter.
The problem is not and never has been guns. In actual fact, virtually all of the recent mass slaughters under Obama’s and other’s watches have been committed in States with the strongest and most draconian gun laws.
In US States where laws permit the concealed carry of guns, these situations rarely–if ever recently–occur. Tragically, the State of Connecticut has–for all intents and purposes–already enacted gun control and just before this horrendous mass murder had tightened up its gun ownership laws. Instead, the true problem is actually isolating and treating those with already recognized and defined severe mental illness and, most especially, turning back to our once-spiritual nature and worship of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
Gun control is meant and has been meant by every modern day dictator to control law-abiding citizens…not criminals. And this is precisely what Dictator-in-Chief Obama and his syndicate plan to do. We have warned you about Obama since before the 2008 elections. What we have warned has already come true in virtually all instances, with some of Obama’s anti-liberty/anti-USA actions now being put into place in his second of who-knows-how-many terms he will serve. Obama and a willing Congress have already stripped out the Fourth Amendment (See the NDAA bill) and severely limited the First Amendment (See HR 347 “Criminalizing Protests Bill” and with Obama’s order to arrest Mark Basseley Youssef for making an anti-Islam film the dictator has officially declared “blasphemy” of Islam as a crime). In other words, what is legally (under the US Constitution) required (three-fourths of US States) to ratify, Obama has done and is continuing to do on his own…unilaterally. Like it or not, folks, these actions are called “dictatorial powers”…and Obama is using them daily.

A recent New York Times article was extremely disturbing. The report was entitled: “27 Deemed to Be Threats Held Aviation Licenses“.
This news article was based on a report
(pdf document) issued by the Inspector General (Internal Affairs) that has oversight responsibility for the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration).
The article stated that that the FAA has no meaningful handle on those to whom that agency has issued pilots’ licenses.
I recently wrote here about constitutional limitations on the new Transportation Security Administration (TSA) strip and grope procedures. They subject us to the sorts of governmental control the Constitution was intended to prevent and violate Fourth Amendment prohibitions in ways highly up close and personal. Some illumination, albeit indirect, is shed by the Supreme Court’s 1968 decision in Terry v. Ohio, 392 U.S. 1 (1968), the essence of which is that a search of one’s person must be reasonable and no more intrusive or degrading than the circumstances mandate. Searches shocking to ordinary human sensibilities fail to meet that test.
President Obama, whose public approval has reached a new low of thirty-nine percent, and his administration are under fire and are
