Kafka’s America: Secret Courts, Secret Laws, and Total Surve
Kafka’s America: Secret Courts, Secret Laws, and Total Surveillance, by John Whitehead, The Rutherford Institute
In a bizarre and ludicrous attempt at “transparency,” the Obama administration has announced that it asked a secret court to approve a secret order to allow the government to keep spying on millions of Americans, and the secret court has granted its request. Late on Friday, July 19, 2013, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) — a secret court which operates out of an undisclosed federal building in Washington, DC — quietly renewed an order from the National Security Agency to have Verizon Communications hand over hundreds of millions of Americans’ telephone records to government officials ...

The IRS Scandal Escalates
The IRS Scandal Escalates, by Matthew Clark, The American Center for Law and Justice
Everything we have heard from the IRS and the Obama Administration about the targeting of the Tea Party seems to end up being proven false, one by one, as the congressional investigation and our lawsuit on behalf of 41 targeted conservative groups continues. The latest bombshell revelation comes from congressional testimony of senior IRS attorneys directly involved in the targeting of the Tea Party that IRS Chief Counsel’s office was directly involved in targeting the Tea Party, delaying their applications, and developing the unconstitutional and intrusive inquire process ...

San Antonio Schools Withdraw Student RFID Chip, The Rutherfo

According to school officials, the decision to cease the “Student Locator Project” was due in part to low participation rates, negative publicity, and a lawsuit by The Rutherford Institute ...
