The Justice Department is suing a telecommunications company for challenging a request from the Federal Bureau of Investigation for customer information — despite the fact that the law authorizing the request explicitly permits such challenges.

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) says he will sue President Obama because of the president’s illegal order to stop the deportation of illegal aliens under a certain age, and that the lawsuit is within weeks of being filed.

King is ready to proceed with the legal action he has been planning against Obama, The Daily Caller reported last week. He announced his plans to sue Obama during an interview with the Des Moines Register in June.

 

Outraged U.S. members of Congress on both sides of the aisle are speaking out against the United Nations “World Intellectual Property Organization” (WIPO) after it was caught providing potentially dangerous American technology to the regimes ruling Iran and North Korea. The UN agency reluctantly promised to “review” the issue, but GOP and Democrat lawmakers on Capitol Hill say that is simply not enough. 

“We have written to WIPO demanding an independent, external investigation of how WIPO could have provided sophisticated U.S.-origin technology to rogue regimes like North Korea and Iran,” explained Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) and Rep. Howard L.

The Obama administration’s efforts to plug the leaks in government continue as Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta on Thursday ordered Pentagon officials to monitor the media for any hint of unauthorized disclosures of classified or other sensitive government information.

Just hours after emerging from a private meeting with the House of Representatives Armed Services Committee reportedly dealing with the recent alleged leaks of government secrets, Panetta issued the directive.

 

 

Despite his father’s invitation to the Republican Convention apparently having been lost in the mail, Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is encouraging the army of Ron Paul supporters not to give up on the GOP.

Appearing on CNN Thursday, the first-term senator said that his father has stoked the fires of a freedom movement that will have “an enormous effect” on the future of the Republican Party, if they can be convinced not to abandon it.
