Freedom Concerns


Fed To Take Over National TV, Radio Today

For years, State and local governments have used the Emergency Alert System [EAS] to notify the public of weather and other emergencies on a local scale, but today’s test will represent for the first time the Federal government’s ability to jam all State, local and national airwaves.

Militarized Police Forces Attack Occupy Camps

Tear gas, non-lethal bullets, flash-bang grenades and arrests “under the suspicion of unlawful assembly” are now all definite realities in the streets of American cities that have been overtaken by Occupy protesters.

Big Brother Considers Tracking Drivers’ Every Move

Instead of raising fuel taxes, many lawmakers support what some Americans may consider an egregious invasion of privacy to raise funding for roadway repairs. The measure would require American drivers to equip their vehicles with a GPS tracking device to measure vehicle miles traveled (VMT).
