Conservative Christian Group Alerts America to… a Practicing Homosexual and Dangerous Negroes???

Why does conservative Christianity get so much negative press in America?

News item (via American Family Association’s One News Now)

“President Obama has submitted a list of five nominees for federal judge posts, and a constitutional law expert suggests America will pay a price. Among the nominees are four African Americans, one of them homosexual, [...]

Barack Obama Bans Pictures Of Himself While Stealing Pictures Of You

If Barack Obama were subjected to the kind of privacy violations that he has inflicted upon the American people through the NSA, FBI and CIA, we would be able to read his emails, search through logs of his cell phone activity, and look at up to the minute maps of his GPS-tracked travel, all while watching and listening to live web cams of the Oval Office, top diplomatic meetings, and even the West Wing bedrooms. [...]

On June 22 2013, the the official petition to pardon Edward Snowden surpassed a the threshold of a hundred thousand signatures officially required for a response at the White House’s We The People petition website.

Obama Official: Once We’ve Got Your Data, it’s Not Subject to the Constitution

I am grateful to the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board for at least holding hearings on the subject of the massive warrantless surveillance.

Hashtags: Where Conspiracies Cross

For some time here at Irregular Times, we’ve followed what might delicately be termed “mysteries” and what might more coarsely called “conspiracy theories”: claims that secret evidence (seemingly always about-to-be-revealed) proves the existence of hidden realities or long-smouldering schemes or special dangers that They don’t want you to know about.

Obama Objects To Samsung Using His Picture After Obama Steals Billions Of Pictures From Samsung

Barack Obama is feeling pissy.

It seems that, after Obama agreed to have his picture taken with professional baseball player David Ortiz, Ortiz choose to post that photograph on his Twitter account. Samsung then retweeted that Twitter post, sending the photo to its many followers.

Obama was outraged. He protested. How dare Samsung take a [...]

On Thursday, the Senate Intelligence Committee will be holding a hearing at which it discusses whether information about the American torture programs should be made public – as if that’s a legitimate question. [...]

Senator Sanders Notices Big Holes In Obama’s NSA Plan

President Barack Obama made news this week that he would propose a plan to decrease a small fraction of spying against the American people by the National Security Agency. The Obama plan would switch authority for seizing information about Americans’ private communications by telephone, but wouldn’t address the problem of warrantless wiretapping that gathers audio [...]

Obama Proposes Keeping Most NSA Spying Against Americans

Obama Plan Would End NSA Bulk Data Collection, reads the headline from the New York Post. That sounds wonderful, doesn’t it?

The sad truth is that the new Obama plan would not end NSA bulk data collection.

The Obama plan would end only a small part of the NSA electronic surveillance deployed against Americans – [...]

Barack Obama Less Transparent As President Than George W. Bush

Back in 2008, Barack Obama promised he would be the most transparent President ever.

In 2013, the Obama Administration went opaque:

- Set a new record for delays of requests from journalists for documents – Set a new record for refusals to share information with the American public – Set a new record for the [...]

Have You Found your Obamacare Microchip Implant Yet?

A year ago at this time, conservative and libertarian conspiracy websites like News With Views and Before It’s News were publishing articles that boldly made predictions that on March 23 2013, the presidential administration of Barack Obama would start requiring the implantation of microchips into Americans’ forearms:

“Micro Chip Implant Coming March 23, 2013″

“The [...]
