The Order

THE ORDER After nearly a year of being in seclusion, Edward Snowden broke his silence about what exactly he did for the government and how he was prompted to speak up when he realized that government overreach had most certainly violated constitutional rights of the citizens.

Under the Gun: Just Defy

UNDER THE GUN: JUST DEFY I get a lot of books to review at the office and as I was taking inventory of them today I found a book hidden in all of the others that caught my eye. The book was all about government secrets and malfeasance that actually confirm some of the most […]
