    James O’Keefe on Saturday said O’Keefe Media Group (OMG) will be publishing undercover video of intel officials. “If I publish the video @OKeefeMedia has of these intel guys, you all better have my back,” James O’Keefe said on X. Earlier Saturday James O’Keefe said elected officials are “afraid” of the intel community because they can use personal stuff as blackmail. “It’s time to expose the intel community on video,” O’Keefe said. “Elected officials are afraid of them because they could use personal stuff as blackmail.”

    The creators of PaintCam Eve want it to be a new, rather artistic force in neighborhood watchPaintCam The humble security cam is now ready and willing to choose violence. A big-thinking Slovenian startup has created a curious smart security camera that doesn't just spy on your visitors, but will actively open fire on potential intruders with paintball pellets – or even tear gas rounds – with "ultra high precision." What could possibly go wrong? Do-it-yourself home security systems are commonplace these days. They're clever and simple enough that more or less anyone can install one to keep watch on property...

    A Muslim University of Southern California (USC) valedictorian has been barred from giving a speech at the school's graduation ceremony following a series of social media posts she allegedly made about Israel. A spokesperson for the college directed Fox News Digital to information posted on the provost office website, which announced that Asna Tabassum will not deliver her speech at the ceremony that draws 65,000 people to the University Park Campus. "While this is disappointing, tradition must give way to safety. This decision is not only necessary to maintain the safety of our campus and students but is consistent with...
  • Dem Rep. Robert Garcia: Thinking of Immigration as a Security Issue Means We Can’t See It as Economic Necessity

    On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” Rep. Robert Garcia (D-CA) said that because we’ve lumped immigration in with border security, we can’t think of immigration as an economic necessity because it’s viewed as a security issue. Host Ali Velshi said, “Congressman, I’m always — I’m concerned about, in this country, we have, accidentally or otherwise, decided to treat immigration as a security threat, as opposed to an economic matter. We’ve done this — immigration falls under the Department of Homeland Security, which I’ve always thought, I understand why it was done after 9/11, but it feels like it...
  • Faced with high prices, Biden administration cancels oil purchase to refill U.S. energy stockpile

    In March, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm had stated that the SPR would be refilled by the end of 2024. The Biden administration is reportedly putting a hold on plans to replenish the nation’s energy stockpiles, citing cost. The Energy Department announced it would not be purchasing 3 million barrels of oil as part of an effort to refill the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, according to Bloomberg, saying it is “keeping the taxpayer’s interest at the forefront.” The administration’s target for the buys is $79 a barrel, but its purchase of 2.8 million barrels last month averaged approximately $81 per barrel. Oil...

    President Joe Biden, with the help of Congress, is spending hundreds of millions in American taxpayer dollars on border security initiatives in foreign countries. At the same time, border crossings at the United States-Mexico border have surpassed 7.4 million since Biden took office. Slipped into a $1.2 trillion budget signed by Biden last weekend is about $380 million for “enhanced border security” projects in Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Oman, and Tunisia — about $150 million of which must go to border security in Jordan. Meanwhile, the budget puts strict limitations on the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) ability to construct physical...

    Washington — In an exclusive interview with CBS News, U.S. Border Patrol chief Jason Owens called the situation at the southern border a "national security threat," expressing concern about tens of thousands of migrants who have evaded apprehension and entered the country surreptitiously over the past five months. Owens said Border Patrol is "closing in" on recording one million apprehensions of migrants in between ports of entry along the U.S.-Mexico border in the 2024 fiscal year, which started in October. For the third consecutive year, his agency is on track to record two million apprehensions by the time the fiscal...

    Hidden cameras are being found in hotel rooms, house rentals, cruise ships, and even airplane bathrooms, leaving many travelers to wonder: “Could a hidden camera be watching me?” Spycams, as they’re called, are getting smaller, harder to find and easier to buy. From alarm clocks to air fresheners, water bottles and toothbrush holders, cameras come embedded in common household items that seamlessly blend with home decor. They can be purchased in shops or online, and through retailers like Amazon and Walmart. And rather than having to retrieve the camera to obtain the recording, owners can stream live images straight to...

    The very least parents expect when they send their children to any educational institution is security. This is the safety of both the physical and mental variety. After this safety is provided, the educational institute must provide a forum for a healthy exchange of ideas and debates. Education isn't merely about imparting knowledge but also about challenging students intellectually and compelling them to confront opposing perspectives. This is not a place for dogma but for open-mindedness. A student must be taught to challenge the seemingly immutable and form opinions after digesting facts about any subject from multiple perspectives. An educational...

    Concerned parents calling themselves SafeBears have raised $40,000 to pay for security guards or “safety ambassadors” to patrol the UC Berkeley campus area for a few weeks in early March. UC Berkeley may be one of America’s most prestigious schools, but its location in the California Bay Area has parents and students both wary of safety on campus. A group called SafeBears, that touts itself as comprising “1,300+ Cal parents and community allies working to improve safety for UC Berkeley students,” has worked to solve the problem themselves, hoping their prototypical program of patrols around campus will inspire the college...
  • An Open Letter From Author Alan Korwin

    Dear Reader, It's important to keep in mind everything conceivably wrong or criminal about firearms is already illegal. So, when new laws are proposed, they typically only impact the innocent. It's precisely why we, the people, object so strenuously to new laws: They affect us and don't impact crime and violence. Because new proposals omit the criminal problem, new rules raise the real specter of actual conspiracy within some halls of government to wrest control and disarm the public. Many in government furiously deny this, but it's supported by evidence and countless public statements. I'm a Utopian Pacifist. I support...

    U.S. spies and cops are vacuuming up huge amounts of data about Americans from data brokers — a trend that puts us on a dangerous path already trodden out by authoritarian regimes such as China. In America, we curtail government powers and guarantee civil liberties by limiting the amount of information citizens provide to the state. Police need a warrant to strap a GPS device on your car or listen to your telephone calls. Intelligence agencies and military units are banned from targeting Americans for surveillance and are supposed to focus their attention overseas.

    More Soldiers Volunteer than Expected An unexpectedly high number of soldiers from the Tennessee National Guard will be deploying to Texas to assist the Lone Star State as they continue to battle the Biden regime in their efforts to secure the southern border. As WKRN reported, Tennessee Governor Bill Lee and his wife on Saturday flew from John C. Tune Airport to Millington-Memphis Airport, where they met with Maj. Gen. Warner Ross. They then visited soldiers before their deployment at the Millington Tennessee Army National Guard Armory outside Memphis. Back in February, Lee promised to send two waves of Tennessee...

    When it comes to mailing letters, many people do it by dropping their envelopes in the United States Postal Service's blue collection bins placed in neighborhoods across America. However, the USPS is now warning would-be mailers that those blue boxes might not be the safest option. In a press release, the Postal Service explained that unfortunately, the collection bins have become very attractive to thieves looking to steal identities or checks, especially at specific times and on specific days. The agency stated, "The biggest variable enticing these criminals to steal are customers depositing mail into blue collection boxes after the...

    The reports out of China arrived just before Thanksgiving. A surge in respiratory infections among children in the northern part of the country triggered a sense of foreboding -- and Deja-vu. Meetings between the World Health Organization and Chinese officials quickly followed.The WHO's conclusions brought some relief. The surge was caused by an "immunity gap" in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, wherein children had few defenses against influenza and other respiratory infections after years of quarantine.This episode should be a wake-up call for the U.S. national security establishment. We remain reliant on other nations, including countries of concern, like...

    California officials employed debunked Democrat election lies to justify designating a Los Angeles-based “transgender empowerment” facility as a vote center for the state’s 2024 primary elections.During a Thursday press conference, California Lt. Gov. Eleni Kounalakis and L.A. City Councilwoman Katy Yaroslavsky, both Democrats, revealed the Connie Norman Transgender Empowerment Center (CONOTEC) will serve as one of Los Angeles County’s vote centers during the Golden State’s primary elections this month. While this “first-of-its-kind voting center in the nation” will “accommodate” all voters, the facility specifically caters to transgender-identifying individuals, according to KNX News. “The opening of the nation’s first transgender voting...

    Prince Harry demanded to know the person responsible for downgrading his UK police protection when he and his wife, Meghan Markle, were stripped of their security in Feb. 2020. On Wednesday, the Duke of Sussex, 39, lost his bid for taxpayer-funded UK security protection for his family and will now have to pay out of pocket for his family’s security when visiting the UK. Court documents have revealed that Harry even asked for the identity of who demoted the level of his personal protection on home soil.
