    Do people in Milwaukee really expect ‘da Journal’ to report hard news after their reporters watched the Milwaukee County board and Tom Ament pass back drop pension payments right underneath their noses? The liberals over at 4th and State are complicit by default. Under their noses, again they’ve watched the Milw. police set-up a fusion center without so much as even finding out what this fusion center actually does. Ed Flynn says the fusion center is a good thing so it must be. Why the government would never lie or withhold informaton, right?

    Fox News, CNN and the networks are afraid of the Obama regulators retaliating if they report the truth about government surveillance. Outstanding article, Steve. It takes guts for a former cop to call the statists out.

    Hello Steve, great post once again. You obviously get it. Like I’ve commented before, I hope and pray that those currently in law enforcement and the military get it. Sooner or later, they will have to make a decision. Do they support the Constitution and the Bill of Rights or tyranny and open world government?

    Believe me many of those employed in the media do not have the intelligence necessary to understand what surveillance and the means used to obtain and catelog the data. These are the same folks who believe that a 6% increase in government spending reduced to a 4% increase in government spending is a budget cut. Explaining fusion centers or the NSA those in the media is like telling a 7th grader about astro-physics.
