  • Obama’s Dirty Watchdogs

    Human Events ^ | 4/25/2014 | Michelle Malkin
    The Obama administration doesn’t have watchdogs. It has whitewash puppies. The president’s Chicago bullies have defanged true advocates for integrity in government in D.C. from day one. So the latest report by the Senate Homeland Security and Government Operations Committee on corruptocrat Charles K. Edwards, the former Department of Homeland Security inspector general, isn’t a revelation. It’s confirmation. Investigators found that Edwards compromised the independence of his office by socializing and sucking up to senior DHS officials. “There are many blessings to be thankful for this year,” the sycophantic Edwards wrote to the DHS acting counsel on Thanksgiving 2011, “but...

    As if you needed another reason not to wear your dumb Google Glass in public—or ever, actually—an Ohio man claims he was yanked out of a movie theater and interrogated by federal agents, who believed he was illegally filming the movie with his face computer. The man’s full account is posted on The Gadgeteer, but we’ll summarize it here so you can get the gist of it before you’re engulfed forever in this ghastly winter storm. Last Saturday, our Glass-wearing protagonist and his wife went to a showing of Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit at an AMC in Columbus, Ohio. About...

    PASADENA, Calif. -- NASA and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security are collaborating on a first-of-its-kind portable radar device to detect the heartbeats and breathing patterns of victims trapped in large piles of rubble resulting from a disaster. The prototype technology, called Finding Individuals for Disaster and Emergency Response (FINDER) can locate individuals buried as deep as 30 feet (about 9 meters) in crushed materials, hidden behind 20 feet (about 6 meters) of solid concrete, and from a distance of 100 feet (about 30 meters) in open spaces. Developed in conjunction with Homeland Security's Science and Technology Directorate, FINDER is...

    Vice President Joe Biden made it clear Friday how he feels about departing Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. "I think Janet Napolitano should be on the Supreme Court of the United States," he said Friday morning at her going away ceremony. His statement was met with raucous applause by those attending, including current and former cabinet secretaries, law enforcement officials, and Attorney General Eric Holder. Napolitano announced in June she would leave her current position this month. She's now preparing to start her next gig as president of the University of California system.

    Legal Insurrection ^ | June 22, 2013 | Professor William A. Jacobson
    One of the things I learned from Obamacare was that each section of the law could take many hours to understand because of cross-references to other sections and other laws. Amendments make the problem even greater. Put that problem into a 1000+ page bill, and it is almost impossible to uncover all the mischief — intentional and unintentional — buried in the language, something we are learning after the fact with Obamacare. The rush to pass the Gang of 8 1000+ page bill is another example. As if that weren’t bad enough to start, Sen. Bob Corker last night unveiled...

    Department of Homeland Security officials said Friday that they are improving the student visa system after a friend of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev re-entered the country with an invalid visa. The officials said the department was “reforming the student visa system” to make sure customs and border officers get almost instant updates on visa information. Azamat Tazhayakov, a Kazakh student and friend of Tsarnaev, re-entered the United States in January with a visa that was no longer valid because he had stopped attending classes at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth. That information was apparently not relayed to customs officers....

    "Under the Constitution’s separation of powers, the Executive is charged with enforcing the laws that Congress enacts. In Obama’s America, the executive office has aggregated to itself a previously unknown power: the power to pick and choose which laws to enforce and which laws to ignore. ......That arrogance has trickled down to Janet Napolitano, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, who is actually in charge of immigration matters. Last year, agents from the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (“ICE”) sought an injunction against Napolitano challenging her directive that the agents must stop any efforts to deport illegal immigrants....
