    During his final year in office, President Obama's team significantly expanded efforts to search National Security Agency intercepts for information about Americans, distributing thousands of intelligence reports across government with the unredacted names of U.S. residents during the midst of a divisive 2016 presidential election. 2 of 26 The data, made available this week by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, provides the clearest evidence to date of how information accidentally collected by the NSA overseas about Americans was subsequently searched and disseminated after President Obama loosened privacy protections to make such sharing easier in 2011 in the...

    First, please excuse me. I never post a few-line vanity; if I post my own material, it is usually a well-thought-out and supported editorial. Forgive me, because I think this thought is important. Indulge me, because it is my birthday.I have always viewed this election in terms of how it would effect my Second Amendment Rights. But after seeing the sheer and brazen corruption in which Comey quashed any charges against Clinton -- having reviewed more than a half a million emails in less than three days -- it is obvious that if Hillary Clinton is elected President, we have...

Almost 200 of those who have benefited were serving life sentences. White House counsel Neil Eggleston says Obama will continue granting clemency to more inmates...

The video of a deputy sheriff, Ben Fields, in the classroom quickly went viral, and prompted the Richland County Sheriff, Leon Lott, to ask federal officials to investigate the encounter at Spring Valley High School. On the department’s Facebook page on Tuesday, Sheriff Lott said the federal investigation had begun. Local law...

    One of America’s most famously Christian businesses is amassing a vast collection of Biblical antiquities. The problem is some of them may have been looted from the Middle East. In 2011, a shipment of somewhere between 200 to 300 small clay tablets on their way to Oklahoma City from Israel was seized by U.S. Customs agents in Memphis. The tablets were inscribed in cuneiform—the script of ancient Assyria and Babylonia, present-day Iraq—and were thousands of years old. Their destination was the compound of the Hobby Lobby corporation, which became famous last year for winning a landmark Supreme Court case on...

    The Huffington Post (Germany) is posting peoples names and photos who comment on social media opposing the migrant invasion. If you post a comment on their site or Facebook or any social media, you will be named. The Huffington Post is a global news organization. This is putting a target on anyone’s head that refuses to go along with the leftist/Islamic war on freedom. These are the lengths the left will go to impose the sharia (Islamic law) on the unwilling. I have long said the media is the enemy. It’s why I refer to them as the enemedia. They...
