Your Government has been Lying to You Man!

We often hear the refrain of, “Your government is lying to you,” in spy movies and from conspiracy nuts.

Picture the seen – two people in an intense situation. They don’t know if they will make it out of the predicament they find themselves in. One appears to be in denial. The other grabs him by the collar of his jacket and shakes him, saying, “Don’t you get it? All this time your government has been lying to you man!”

Yet somehow in real life we “don’t get it,” and those who are attempting to uncover the lies are labeled as conspiracy theorists – or worse.

Of course some out there are and should be labeled as such. One certainly comes to mind – a certain Alex Jones, who seems to develop a new conspiracy hypothesis every week. But hey – even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

Others like Tom Fitton’s Judicial Watch and Mark Levin’s Landmark Legal Foundation are completely legit and should be trusted almost implicitly. When they say something is amiss – 99 times of 100, something is indeed amiss.

And once again Mr. Fitton’s organization has discovered that our government “has been lying to you man!” read more

Video Podcast – Thank You for Flying ICE Air

Just how are illegal immigrants deported anyway? It turns out there a few ways. One is to hoof-it back across the border from whence they came. Another is a chartered bus that our benevolent federal government provides, and a third is by aircraft.

They call it ICE-Air, owing to the fact that the aircraft is provided by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency. They charter many flights a year to ferry illegals back to their homeland where they belong – because they certainly don’t belong here in America.

Today I discuss ICE-Air, how it works and maybe an idea or two on improving the system of deportation. read more

More Questions than Answers in Las Vegas

What is going on in Las Vegas? The timeline of incidents leading up to the shooting keep changing – and where is the hero hotel security guard, Jesus Campos?

The next logical question would then be – are the two connected somehow?

Earlier this week, Las Vegas police issued a timeline of events which stated that security guard Campos was shot a full six minutes before the shooter Paddock began firing on the crowd below.

The now famous Las Vegas Sheriff, Joe Lombardo, also corrected the record of those injured. He said Friday, “that the number of injuries related to the Oct. 1 massacre had increased, rising to 546. Of that number, he said, 45 were still hospitalized, some in critical condition,” writes the Chicago Tribune.

Lombardo also confirmed that police do believe Paddock shot at large aviation fuel storage tanks. Igniting the tanks, which didn’t and probably couldn’t have happened, may have had a two-fold effect – furthering the carnage and more easily providing for an escape. read more

MS-13 Charged with Murder in Maryland

from Breitbart:

Five illegal aliens who are part of the MS-13 gang were charged in connection with the brutal murder of a Maryland woman who was beaten to death and buried in June and unearthed in September.

Maryland authorities discovered the body of 21-year-old Jenni B, Rivera in a shallow grave on the outskirts of Annapolis, the Baltimore Sun reported. The victim was allegedly lured to her death and then beaten by Ervin Figueroa, Brenda Argueta, Ronald Mendez Sosa, Darvin Guerra-Zacarias, and Francisco Ramirez-Pena, all five members of the MS-13 who have immigration detainers on them. Each had varying degrees of participation with two carrying out the actual murder.  read more

Just Let the NLRB Run the NFL

Recall that President Trump said, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners,” wondered the president, “when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b**** off the field right now, out. He’s fired. He’s fired!’”

I said that no owner would have the stones to stand up to political correctness like that. I thought they’d be too cowardly to do it, even though at least a few are probably thinking it.

Well, I was wrong and Trump was right. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones came out and said practically that. He said earlier this week if a player disrespects the flag and national anthem by not standing, then the player will not play.

And sure enough, fans loved it. Even I, a Jerry Jones hater, loved it. But the players and the Players Union were not quite as fond of the Cowboys owner’s exhortation.

“Local 100 of the United Labor Unions filed a complaint against the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday, alleging owner and general manager Jerry Jones has violated the National Labor Relations Act by threatening players if they choose not to stand for the national anthem,” writes ESPN. read more

As useful as they are for amputees, prosthetic legs aren’t the most comfortable things to wear. With the whole body pressing down on the point of contact, they can be painful, awkward to walk with and cause infections. Now scientists from the Office of Naval Research (ONR) have developed a more comfortable and “smart” prosthetic that can be attached and detached at will, and monitored for infection and stress with an array of sensors. read more
