Southern Poverty Law Center admits it does not monitor 'the extreme Left'

In a stunning display of candor the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) of Montgomery, Alabama admitted today that it does not monitor "the extreme Left" although for years the organization has billed itself as a watchdog of hate groups.
The admission came during a phone interview conducted by Charles C.W. Cooke of National Review, during which Cooke asked a spokesman for SPLC if the organization had plans to begin to track the Occupy movement in light of the foiled terrorist attempt to blow up a bridge in Cleveland, Ohio.
The suspects who were arrested in the case are connected directly to the Occupy movement.
According to Cooke the person who first answered his call at SPLC appeared stunned by the question. She then transferred him to a representative who was conducting an international conference on right wing extremism.

Paul launches effort to end TSA

U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., has launched a campaign that would abolish the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and end the federal government's involvement in airport security altogether.
The Senator announced the campaign today in an article sent to the members of Campaign for Liberty in which he stated that he intends to introduce legislation that would end the agency. He asks citizens to sign a petition in support of the drive.
Paul was detained by the TSA earlier this year at an airport when he refused to submit to an invasive pat down. He had already passed through a full body scanner. 
The incident became national headline news. Some conservatives believed that Paul was singled out by the TSA due to his criticism of the agency on the floor of the U.S. Senate.

Murder of Mexican lawyer with Fast and Furious gun regains spotlight

In the course of the investigation into the Operation Fast and Furious scandal it has been determined that at least two murders of U.S. agents can be traced to the guns the ATF walked across the border to drug cartels, in addition to the hundreds of Mexicans killed along the border.
Another murder is once again gaining the attention of some media outlets in the aftermath of the Obama Administration's campaign to place U.S. guns in the hands of Mexican criminals in order to create false statistics that could be used as justification for calling for strict gun control laws.

Defying the May Day Commies

Well, I went out today, twice, in fact, to make some purchases.

Big news, eh?

Normally such a mundane matter would not be worth the time, effort, and energy to report it...except for today.

You see, the labor unions, the anarchists, and the Commies wanted May Day to be a day in which workers went on strike and stayed home, not only refusing to go to work but refraining from making purchases at retail outlets. They wanted to 'send a message' that they could bring down the economy.

So, being the highly cooperative soul that I am, I did my part. I went out and did exactly the opposite of what the May Day 'Occupy' Commies said to do.

Not only did I make purchases at retail outlets but I worked as well. I was up early today writing and monitoring the movements of the Occupy thugs around the country. No, I did not stalk them. I never left the house while doing it. But I do keep up with sources who keep their ears to the ground.

So far at least the May Day disruptions did not quite go as well as expected. It seems the movement has lost significant steam since last year. But it is too early to let our guard down. These people are dangerous, and they never really give up.

Bill Ayers is still around, after all, stirring up the pot.

House Judiciary Committee report blasts Holder and DOJ

The House Judiciary Committee issued its official report on the Department of Justice on Monday. The report blasts Attorney General Eric Holder for "partisan ignorance" of the Constitution, and the entire DOJ is cited for the failure to adhere to the law.
Titled "The Obama Administration's Disregard of the Constitution and Rule of Law," the report begins with the following:
The Attorney General is responsible for the enforcement of the laws of the United States and defending the Constitution. Of all agencies in the federal government, the Justice Department should not be motivated by a partisan agenda. Unfortunately, under the Obama administration, the Justice Department has become more partisan than ever. 
The House Judiciary Committee has jurisdiction over the Justice Department and oversees the actions of the Agency.  The following report gives several high profile examples of how the Justice Department has ignored the Constitution to impose the Administration’s partisan agenda on the American people.

Twitter suspension of conservative sparks protest

On Sunday evening the talk on the social networking siteTwitter was ablaze with outrage over the suspension of a conservative's account after he had defended his wife against a coordinated attack by liberals.
Chris Loesch, the husband of Big Journalism editor and CNN contributor Dana Loesch, had defended his wife against statements directed to her apparently for no other reason than her political ideology.
Apparently his actions were enough to get his account suspended.
Conservatives who witnessed the entire display were livid, claiming that Loesch had not violated any of Twitter's terms of service, nor did he threaten anyone. The liberals attacking him, on the other hand, had engaged in personal threats of violence, according to those who saw the events as they happened, including this reporter. 
The conservatives, thus, began to send tweets with the "hashtag" #FreeChrisLoesch. Within two hours the hashtag was trending nationally and had reached the level of the third most tweeted subject on Twitter.

Looming May Day protests indicate Occupy movement escalation

Organizers of the Occupy Wall Street movement plan nationwide May Day protests on Tuesday, May 1, 2012 in an escalation of the movement's activity.
A report at Bloomberg on Thursday indicates that the major Wall St. firms have already initiated heightened security and monitoring of the group's movements in anticipation of possible confrontations.
According to Marisa Holmes, a member of the Occupy planning committee, at least 99 firms have been targeted in midtown Manhattan, including JP Morgan Chase and Bank of America.
Protests are scheduled in over 115 cities across America, including San Francisco, where participants state that they will attempt to shut down the Golden Gate Bridge.
