Sure they may bitch and complain while drinking with coworkers at happy hour, but they won’t write a letter or make a phone call to voice displeasure over something that costs them 40 percent of their paychecks.
- On Monday, Federal District Court Judge Richard Leon issued an injunction against the National Security Agency (NSA), which temporarily put an end to the agency’s bulk metadata collection.
According to US News, Leon is the first and only district court judge to rule against the NSA program.
- Congress recently passed a bill that allocated $500-Million to train a new fighting force of more than 3,000 “pro-American” Syrian rebels.
As it turns out, only 190 rebels were trained at a cost of $2 million per rebel. After spending $384 Million of the $500 Million, the program was abandoned last month. Approximately 95 of those trained actually ended up fighting in Syria. The rest are unaccounted for.
The Pentagon has recently vowed to spend even more tax dollars by providing new weapons to Syrian rebels.
United States Senator and Republican Presidential candidate Rand Paul (Ky.) has been a vocal critic of arming the Syrian rebels.
Just recently, large swaths of these U.S. backed rebels switched their allegiance, taking with them all of the weapons and training funded by American taxpayers.
- A Republican-controlled Congress recently passed a $670-billion defense bill that provides aid to Kiev and Syrian rebels. However, there’s one provision of the bill that President Obama isn’t happy with. The bill keeps GITMO open.
The White House is planning to push an Executive Order forward in order to shut down GITMO regardless of what Republicans have called for. Although the White House admits it’s not quite certain whether or not the Executive Order is even constitutional, they plan to push forward anyway.
Spread the word, expose the truth, it's never too late.
