Every time I go on his show, my radio pal Hugh Hewitt asks me why congressional Republicans arent doing more to insist that the GOP suicide note known as the immigration deal include a requirement for a border fence. I dont like to tell Hugh that, if they ever get around to building the fence, it wont be to keep the foreigners out but to keep you guys in.
But, in fact, it would have been extremely difficult to track the Tsarnaevs at, say, the mosque they attended. Your Grannys phone calls, your teenagers Flickr stream, and your Telecharge tickets for two on the aisle at Mamma Mia! for your wifes birthday, and the MasterCard bill for dinner with your mistress three days later are all fair game, but since October 2011 mosques have been off-limits to the security state.
If the FBI guy who got the tip-off from Moscow about young Tamerlan had been sufficiently intrigued to want to visit the Boston mosque where he is said to have made pro-terrorism statements during worship, the agent would have been unable to do so without seeking approval from something called the Sensitive Operations Review Committee high up in Eric Holders Department of Justice. The Sensitive Operations Review Committee is so sensitive nobody knows whos on it.
You might get approved, or you might get sentenced to extra sensitivity training for the next three months. Even after the bombing, the cops forbore to set foot in the lads mosque for four days. Three hundred million Americans are standing naked in the NSA digital scanner, but the all-seeing security state has agreed that not just their womenfolk but Islam itself can be fully veiled from head to toe.

Our two parties are getting to be like the split in the Russian Communist Party
“Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose”
Now if there was a way for everyone to pretend they were Muslims so the NSA would have to leave them alone...without being beheaded by real Muslims for being heretics...
First problem with this article: Steyn calls RINO Hewitt a “friend?”
You mean the Bolsheviks and Menshiviks? Republicans are indeed like Menshiviks. They were more hated by the Bolsheviks than the royalists, who at least had honor. Mensheviks were probably all killed as soon as the Bolsheviks took over.
If they ever start building a fence it will be on the Canadian border. Mark Steyn is right it will be to keep us in.
The GOP will do nothing to restore the constitutional republic. Nothing.
Well, when that happens I guess it will be official what is happening then.
