“Expedited Border Crossing” For Drivers Tied To Terrorism, Drug Smuggling

Drivers with terrorism and drug-smuggling ties were cleared by the United States for “expedited border crossing” under a free-trade agreement created to facilitate commercial traffic between Canada, Mexico and the U.S. As inconceivable as this may seem, it’s documented in a federal audit released by the Department of Homeland Security…

In a chilling revelation, the agency created after 9/11 to protect the United States from another terrorist attack claims it achieved its “goal” by gaining “operational control” over a mere 13% of the nation’s borders. It gets better. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) took six years to accomplish this…

Congress Recognizes “Unusual” Fed Studies On Dog Urine, Flies’ Sex Habits

A group of bipartisan federal lawmakers have created a new award to recognize publicly-funded research on outlandish subjects like guinea pig eardrums, dog urine and the sexual habits of a parasitic fly known as a screwworm.
