Trump Prepares To re-Militarize Americas Local Police Departments

Leaked documents reveal that Donald Trump soon plans on overturning an Executive Order banning the sale of military gear and equipment to US police departments. This article isn’t “anti-police,” I just do not think local police departments need armored vehicles, grenade launchers and .50 caliber machine guns. Do you?

US Cyber Command Becomes Newest Branch of US Military

On Friday morning, Donald Trump announced that he would be elevating US Cyber Command to report directly to the US Secretary of Defense, effectively making the agency the newest branch of the US military.

Stop Blaming Drug Users for America’s “Opioid Epidemic” & Newest “National Emergency”

US Government Continues To Make Questionable Cyber Security Decisions

Now, a new cyber security study has found Kapersky to be the safest and most effective anti-virus software specifically for Microsoft systems, two weeks after the US Government banned Kapersky from Federal use.

US Department of Justice Sued for Failing To Disclose Surveillance Documents

Another day and another Freedom of Information Act lawsuit has been filed against the United States Government. This time, the US Department of Justice is being sued for failing to comply with US law, which demands that the agency make all legal records and opinions afforded to them by the Office of Legal Council a matter of public record. The lawsuit hopes to establish whether or not the US Government knew it would be blatantly violating US Law while drafting and ultimately finalizing controversial surveillance laws dating back to 2001.
