Clif and Robin discussed the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) along with Homeland security seized the domain names of 82 Internet websites under the new Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act (COICA) redirecting users to a US government site with a notice stating that, "this domain name has been seized by ICE-Homeland security investigations pursuant to a seizure warrant issued by the United States District Court under the authority of 18 USC 981 and 2323..."

the websites have been closed down for illegal filesharing and and selling counterfeit goods such as sports equipment, athletic apparel and illegal copies of copyrighted DVDs and music.

while I will admit that these sites could be guilty of illegal activity, what is the Immigration and Customs Enforcement who is supposed to be focusing on "immigration and customs enforcement" issues doing going after filesharing websites?

also local news, Portland, Oregon known as the Christmas Tree bomber pleads not guilty and that he was entrapped by the FBI.

US Rep. Steve Buyer (R-IN),"...This is why the American people have thrown you out of power..." was attempting to voice his objects over a bill from the Veterans’ Affairs committee coming to the House floor under the rules of suspension.
