Ron Paul: ‘We Now Live In A Police State’

We now live in a police state. If we do not recognize and resist this development, freedom and prosperity for all Americans […]

You can’t have a presumption of privacy from the government when talking on a cell phone. The FBI won’t bother to obtain search warrants before it uses interception devices on people in public, according to a letter written by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and staffer Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa). These devices include […]

Florida Congressman Alan Grayson believes he’s being denied access to 28 pages of classified information because of his criticism of the National Security Agency. Why was I denied?

The Keystone XL pipeline wasn’t the only piece of legislation that was killed on Tuesday. Make no mistake, it’ll unfortunately be back after the new Congress is sworn in next year, but for now it’s been blocked.

James Risen, author of the new Pay Any Price, is facing jail time because of stories he broke about the NSA spying on Americans. He spoke on radio Thursday night of the corruption, excesses, and wasted billions in the war on terror. As the New York Times review of the book reported: We see how, […]

During his TED Talk presentation last week, The Intercept‘s Glenn Greenwald issued a challenge: If you defend the National Security Agency’s surveillance activities by insisting that you have nothing to hide, then you should send all of your usernames and passwords to Glenn Greenwald, allowing him to publish anything he finds particularly juicy. Here’s the […]
