DOJ Still Wastes Millions on Conferences

Illustrating that the nation’s perpetual budget crisis has done little to slow down the government’s manic spending spree, the Department of Justice (DOJ) blew north of $58 million on conferences last year. The figure doesn’t even factor in all of the bloated agency’s extracurricular conferences because it excludes those that…


Did Obama DOJ Nix U.S. Weapons Tech Espionage Probe?

It appears that the Obama Justice Department killed—or at the very least intervened in—a potentially explosive espionage investigation involving the illegal transfer of American weapons technology to China and other foreign countries.

Judge Helps Feds Keep Chandra Levy Case Secret

Court Orders Feds to Pay State’s Legal Fees in Frivolous Voter ID Case

Unprecedented Govt Surveillance of U.S. Citizens

Imam’s Terrorist Ties Exposed by Local News Station

Anti-Semite “Civil Rights Icon” Headlines CAIR Banquet

How appropriate that a notorious race-hustler and renowned anti-Semite will be the keynote speaker at the annual banquet of a terrorist front group that bills itself as the nation’s largest Muslim advocacy organization.

Years, Millions Later U.S. Drops “Largest Human Trafficking Case in U.S. History”
