President Obama announced today that he will be combining the White House staffs dealing with international and homeland security, claiming that the move would “make Americans safer.” The president will establish a “global engagement directorate” and a “National Security staff” that will deal with all policymaking related to “international, transnational, and homeland security matters.” National Security Adviser James Jones will head the staff.
Jones, a former Marine commandant, praised the move, saying that “terror around the world doesn’t recognize borders.” President Obama said the move “will end the artificial divide between White House staff who have been dealing with national security and homeland security issues.”
The statement was issued as a press release, though it largely took a back seat to the revelation of the president’s choice for the Supreme Court. It claimed to be a required move to “deal with new and emerging 21st Century challenges,” with cybersecurity at the top of the list – even ahead of WMD terrorism.
To that end, the president is expected to appoint an Internet Czar later this week, a position which will have broad oversight both government-run and private networks. The position will said to report to both Jones and top White House economic adviser Lawrence Summers.

Ugh this reminds me me of when the CIA did illegal domestic surveillance in the 60s and early 70s. Keep all these various cops firewalled and separated to reduce their power I say. I may be a lefty but this is one issue I can agree with the Libertarians who are the founders of this site on.
Amen to the CIA (Crime In America) Syndicate. This is going to make things safer for WHOM!?
As for THIS JACK-*SS — Jones, a former Marine commandant, praised the move, saying that “terror around the world doesn’t recognize borders.”
If this MORON believed THAT mouthful of Manure, he would demand that Mexican border be sealed…. The only "war" going on …. is the war on your RIGHTS>
There is currently a National "debate" going on, actually it is a propaganda offensive by the Ruling Powers to "justify" their actions.
Torture is being justified under the argument that it is okay because it is being used against ….. listen carefully ….
NON-uniformed, "fanatics", who refuse to submit to "THE POWER". You are supposed to whole-heartedly support and affirm the use of torture ……
or you are somehow "NOT SUPPORTING THE TROOPS" and you are "LESS than a Patriotic American".
You better be fighting AGAINST torture TOOTH and NAIL, and VIGOROUSLY DEMANDING the prosecution of any and all who engaged in it.
Why ????? Because YOU are next on the waterboard. Or do you intend to passively kneel to Barak Hussein Obama and surrender your ARMS when told to.
What is going on now is forming the framework of the coming conflict over YOUR RIGHTS vs the Governmental "authoriTAY".
YOU are going to classified as an "ILLEGAL COMBATANT" because YOU will not be in a uniform or serving in a "regular" military,
IF you resist ARMS confiscation.
JOIN and DONATE to Amnesty International, they may be the ONLY voice you have when YOU are in the CAMP/DUNGEON
Hey "general jones" ….. why are you not SCREAMING demands that THIS border be sealed:
Above is a transcript from March2nd 60 MINUTES. In brief, the Government acknowledges that it has no control of the border. TONS of drugs and Millions of ILLEGALS enter this country. TONS of cash and TONS of weapons leave this country. They have no way of knowing how many "TERRORISTS" have crossed (IF there IS such a creature)
TWO things were of major interest:
(1) The Department of Homeland STUPIDITY acknowledges they have no control – therefore, HOW are they going to protect you from TERRORISTS, if they cannot stop gangbangers.
(2) The "head" of the Department of Homeland STUPIDITY (and others) tries to blame YOUR right to keep and bear ARMS for the weapons going south. The only trouble is …….. they showed and talked of MISSILES, HAND GRENADES, BELT FED MACHINES GUNS. Those are weapons STOLEN FROM THE AMERICAN MILITARY. They are not coming from the SEMI-auto Civilian world! They are direct from your Military's ARMORIES. Not only can your Government NOT PROTECT the borders …. and YOU. The Government CANNOT HANG ON TO IT'S OWN WEAPONS!!!
