Life in 2013 is starting to resemble a modern-day Upton Sinclair novel.

Congress plans to re-introduce surveillance bill CISPA completely unchanged, citing recent cyberattacks. Will they take out the most worrying aspects of CISPA before trying again? Negative. As The Next Web reported, CISPA will be attempted again “in its exact previous form.”

Oh, and your delicious supermarket “beef” may contain up to 100% horsemeat.


For those who are still quite fond of their 4th Amendment rights, Ron Paul raised the alarm over on his official Facebook page earlier today that the Senate’s current immigration reform package is a civil liberties nightmare.

The former Congressman and presidential candidate warned that the proposed McCain/Schumer immigration “reform” plan, as it exists now, would usher in warrantless surveillance of US citizens using drones, a de facto mandatory national ID system barring those without it from working legally, increased federal database information on US citizens, and the further erosion of our core civil rights under the guise of keeping our economy “safe” from a mostly non-existent wave of illegal immigration.

Scariest paragraph of Ron Paul’s post: “Harper rightly notes that E-Verify is in fact a national ID card, writing last week that, ‘the system must biometrically identify everyone who works—you, me, and every working American you know. There is no way to do internal enforcement of immigration law without a biometric national identity system.'”

In today’s David Seaman Hour! video segment, I talked about a report posted by ABC 13 Houston that there were, in fact, military helicopters running aggressive urban warfare exercises over parts of the city — this comes just days after disturbing social media reports of similar ‘war games’ in Miami.

If these exercises are merely to train our troops for existing combat zones — namely, Afghanistan — what city over there resembles Houston or Miami? (Hint: None of them do.)

And even if these exercises were being conducted with the utmost transparency, would this be a reasonable use of our tax dollars, at a time when millions are unemployed, our education system is falling behind, and our infrastructure is in dire need of upgrades…
