The odds are you are not just a face in the crowd any longer. Even if your picture isn't plastered all over social networking and photo-sharing sites, facial recognition technology in public places is making it harder if not impossible to remain anonymous. Lesley Stahl reports on the new ways this technology is being used that even has one of its inventors calling it too intrusive. Her 60 Minutes report will be broadcast Sunday, May 19 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

Obama's Emptiest Benghazi Talking Point
- Michelle Malkin - TOWNHALL.COM
On Sept. 12, 2012, President Barack Obama vowed to "bring to justice" the perpetrators of the deadly attack in Benghazi, Libya. On Oct. 26, 2012, Obama said his "biggest priority" was bringing the "folks" in Libya responsible for murdering four Americans to "justice." Tick, tock, tick, tock.
While White House press secretary Jay Carney sneers at the GOP's "obsession" with what went wrong at the besieged Libyan consulate, Obama continues to ply his emptiest talking point. On May 13, 2013, more than eight months after the bloody disaster, Obama snippily reminded reporters that he had told us all back in September that "we would find out what happened, we would make sure that it did not happen again, and we would make sure that we held accountable those who had perpetrated this terrible crime."

Suspects feds gave bank information to 'leftist journalist'
NEW YORK – Amid disclosures of IRS harassment of conservatives, the maker of the controversial film “Dreams from My Real Father” now suspects he was the victim of tag-team harassment by the IRS and a leftist journalist apparently working in concert to intimidate him and his investors.
WND previously reported director Joel Gilbert (pictured at right) was concerned a journalist investigating his documentary used information that could only have been obtained by hacking into his company’s bank account.

When It's Their Rights, Media Become Tea Party, NRA
- John Nolte - BREITBART
Rush Limbaugh apparently thinks the mainstream media will not start aggressively asking hard questions of this Administration after playing 'kissy-face' with their 'hero Obama' for over five years. Rush could be wrong. After the IRS overstepped their authority with the Associated Press, I think all of the mainstream media Obama puppets realize he has no loyalty. Hopefully, neither will they. - Dale
Another brilliant column from National Review's Rich Lowry at Politico. Lowry makes the indisputable point that the same media that have spent years attacking the Tea Party, and months savaging the NRA, are now revealing brazen hypocrisy when it comes to protecting their own rights. In spirit and goal, the media are now one with the Tea Party and NRA.
What animates the Tea Party and NRA is a legitimate concern that the government -- especially under President Obama -- has made a disturbing pivot from their Constitutional requirement to protect our liberties, to infringing upon our liberties. In turn, Obama and his media label us as anti-government crazies suffering from paranoid delusions.
Washington Post's Kessler Calls Out Obama, Sen. Boxer on Benghazi Lies
- Matt Vespa - NEWSBUSTERS
Political prostitution seems to know no party label. Nixon lied about Watergate. Clinton lied about most everything and Obama has made Clinton (both Bill and Hillary) look like saints. Oh, by the way, GW Bush, in his second term, seemed to be no saint either. He was a good man who should have (as with Obama) served ONE term. - Dale
As the Obama administration’s Benghazi narrative begins to crumble, they’ve decided to recycle old talking points in the hope that the news media won't fact-check them. On May 13, during a press conference, President Obama said, “The day after it [Benghazi] happened, I acknowledged that this was an act of terrorism.” The Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler – in this instance – should be commended for calling Obama’s statement for what it is: a lie.
IRS Targeted Catholic League
- Bill Donohue - NEWSMAX
The problems with the IRS extend beyond playing politics with conservative groups seeking a tax-exempt status. I have never made this public before, but given the heightened interest in the way the IRS has conducted itself, the time has come to disclose what happened.
Just weeks after Barack Obama was elected president in 2008, I was notified by the IRS that the Catholic League was under investigation for violating the IRS Code on political activities as it relates to 501(c)(3) organizations. What the IRS did not know was that I had proof who contacted them to launch the investigation: Catholics United, a George Soros-funded Catholic organization.
Lawmakers demand jail time for IRS scandal

'We need to find out where the hell the buck stops with this administration' (Rep. Cory Gardner, R-Colo)
Furious over revelations that the Internal Revenue Service targeted conservative groups seeking nonprofit status, several Republicans are now demanding jail time for anyone involved in the scandal. “Now my question isn’t about who is going to resign,” House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, told reporters. “My question is who’s going to jail over this scandal?”
D.C. Moves to Force Gun Owners to Buy Prohibitive Liability Insurance
- Kurt Nimmo - INFOWARS
I wonder how many of these elitist lawmakers carry weapons. I wonder how many have armed security carrying concealed weapons. I wonder if they know they are elitist hypocrites. I wonder if they care. - Dale
In a frontal assault against the Bill of Rights, the District of Columbia is moving to force firearms owners to purchase prohibitively expensive liability insurance. California, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York and Pennsylvania have also proposed forcing gun owners to buy liability insurance.
Democrat City Council member Mary Cheh proposed the law. It requires residents purchase at least $250,000 in insurance coverage before city government would consider applications to register a firearm.
If passed, the law will be the first in the country and serve as a precedent for Democrats and gun-grabbers working to dismantle the Second Amendment.
