War is a racket…would you like to buy some surplus military hardware?

War is a racket…would you like to buy some surplus military hardware?

by Patrick Devlin In Sonny Boy Williamson’s song called “Decoration Day” he sings that his deceased wife asked him before she passed to bring flowers to her grave on every Decoration Day. Already a holiday of remembrance for the nearly half a million Civil War dead when the song was recorded in Aurora, IL in 1938, Sonny Boy’s wife asks him that he pay respects to her while he is at the graveyard on Decoration Day honoring the memory of our fallen soldiers. The years tick by, the number of fallen ‘warriors’ (in today’s parlance) rises unabated and we stand […]

The Imitation of Christ is a Public Safety Violation in Ft. Lauderdale

by Patrick Devlin A 90 year old man was arrested in Ft. Lauderdale for violating the city’s new public safety ordinance as he attempted to bring safety to disenfranchised members of the public.

Supreme Court agrees that Uncle Sam can kick those damn kids off property granted to him by the public

Supreme Court agrees that Uncle Sam can kick those damn kids off property granted to him by the public

by Patrick Devlin The US Supreme Court has ruled unanimously in a case involving Americans’ freedom to petition the government on a public highway that is “controlled” by the US military, deciding that a citizen could be permanently barred from protesting at a US military base. In the case before the court, John Apel was appealing his arrest for protesting the US Military’s use of nuclear weapons on a public highway that traverses Vandenberg Airforce Base, a nuclear weapons facility in California. Apel’s contention was that he was immune from prosecution because he was protesting on a public byway and […]

Supremely disturbing constitutional analysis changes bill of rights

by Patrick Devlin The US Supreme Court has handed American law enforcement agencies an unqualified victory that arguably restricts the Constitutional prohibition against unwarranted searches and seizures. In a split decision the court ruled that even when a person who is the subject of a law enforcement investigation has refused to have his home searched by police, the Supreme Court determined that, if law enforcement officers simply ask another person who happens to live at the same address while the investigatory target is not present (a type of third party consent referencing another’s constitutional rights) the law enforcement agents can […]

In a letter to NSA Director Keith Alexander that Sanders made public on January 3, the senator said he was “deeply concerned” about the recent revelations regarding […]

when the pope says ‘maternal tenderness’ he ain’t thinking hillary

by Patrick Devlin The people’s pope ventured again into precarious doctirnal waters when he recently made comments suggesting that he believes that human ‘fundamentalism’ has been a barrier to advancement. The pope shared his analysis with 120 priests who are the leaders of Catholic religious orders in a meeting in Switzerland this past November. Responding to queries regarding how the new leader of the church wants his priests to approach the communities of the faithful as well as those who may consider becoming Catholic, the pope proposed his analysis stating, “It is a hermeneutical question: reality is only understood if […]

iPhone and you’re known: spooks coming in through Apple’s “back door”

by Patrick Devlin Digital activist Jacob Applebaum (@ioerror), in a wide ranging presentation on what is currently known about the massive government coordinated and private business architected and facilitated uber-surevillance regime that interlopes into all planetary electronic interpersonal communications before the 30th Chaos Communication Congress over this past weekend, provided evidence of the National Security Agency’s creation of a software application that provides a ‘back door’ into all Apple iPhones allowing direct government surveillance of any purchaser of what is Apple’s flagship consumer product. The power-point slide that Applebaum revealed to conferees describes that the US government created Apple iPhone […]
