Moral Test For Senate Democrats In David Barron Vote

Will they have the courage to stand against their party’s own leader, and defend the Bill of Rights, in which the Fifth Amendment promises that no one can be executed without due process of law and the indictment of a grand jury – or will they help Barack Obama expand George W. Bush’s attack on the Constitution? [...]

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.

How the US Government Spies on Americans without “Spying on Americans”

How are we to make sense of the news that the US government has been “helping” the UK government collect e-mails, phone records, app records, voice chats and now the naked web photo chats of millions of Americans? How can that possibly be reconciled with President Barack Obama’s bald assertion that “there is no spying [...]

NSA Pictures Of You Naked Smash The Metadata Myth. Yahoo!

Apologists for the Obama Administration’s Big Brother electronic spying have spent much of the last year wagging their heads at concerns about privacy, saying that gosh, the age of privacy is just plain over, and we all need to accept that some of our private information will end up in government hands, because we need [...]

Long After Reaching Threshold, Unanswered Snowden Petition Still Adds 100s of Signatures a Day

217 days ago, the official petition to President Barack Obama to pardon the whistleblower Edward Snowden surpassed 100,000 signatures.
