In the latest round of the Peter King–Rand Paul squabble, the New York congressman doubted the Kentucky senator’s interest, or even ability, to have a reasonable debate on the issue of national security.
On Wednesday’s Morning Joe, King accused Paul of “expedience paranoia” by taking fears of drones and the National Security Agency to a “hysterical level.”
BREAKING: New Emails Show Lois Lerner Was in Contact With DOJ About Prosecuting Tax Exempt Groups
According to new IRS emails obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request from Judicial Watch, former head of tax exempt groups at the IRS Lois Lerner was in contact with the Department of Justice in May 2013 about whether tax exempt groups could be criminally prosecuted for "lying" about political activity.
WASHINGTON -- Negative campaigning and mudslinging may be a fact of life in American politics, but can false accusations made in the heat of an election be punished as a crime?
That debate makes its way to the Supreme Court next week as the justices consider a challenge to an Ohio law that bars false statements about political candidates during a campaign.
The federal agency that backed down over the weekend in a tense standoff with a Nevada rancher is being accused of leaving a trail of wreckage behind.
Fox News toured the damage -- allegedly caused by the Bureau of Land Management -- which included holes in water tanks and destroyed water lines and fences. According to family friends, the bureau's hired "cowboys" also killed two prize bulls.
I watched this awesome interview by Greg Hunter of Catherine Austin Fitts that talks about the banking system and how the government system is dependent on it, some comparison to nazi-germany, how to fix it (because the government is not capable to fix it) and alot more. The video is being deleted all over youtube, 3 out of 4 have been deleted. This is the last one I have found that isn't deleted.
Thank you to those who have followed the string of threads that have brought us to this one. I am ever-grateful for your consideration and time in entertaining such ideas. These ideas I share are not for entertainment, rather to convey one man’s belief of how [we] can alter the political, economic and ecological atmospheres mired amongst us in order to see that the situation, rather the condition of our entire focus continues to exacerbate the decimation of integrity concerning trust in [man], t
WASHINGTON — Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid collected a $1.1 million windfall on a Las Vegas land sale even though he hadn't personally owned the property for three years, property deeds show.
In the process, Reid did not disclose to Congress an earlier sale in which he transferred his land to a company created by a friend and took a financial stake in that company, according to records and interviews.

Sedgwick, Maine Took the Controversial Libertarian Position on GMO Foods. And yes, They're Still Alive.
Nine European countries have already banned Monsanto's GMO corn. Throughout Europe there's a growing outcry of just getting rid of Monsanto and GMO all together. That same public sentiment is now beginning to spread throughout the United States as anti-GMO protests and
“They’re after us! They want money from us!”
Watch Ron Paul’s interview on Cavuto discussing the IRS targeting Campaign for Liberty:
All of the ride-sharing companies operate on the same principle, claiming that their fares are "voluntary" and admittedly fluctuating based on supply and demand. Because they aren't charging rigid rates, they claim they are not subject to local ordinances in various cities that require taxicabs to pay per-cab tolls to city transportation departments/agencies. Cities transportation agencies are pretty upset about not getting their cut of the pie.
"There have been a lot of people criticizing Clive Bundy because he did not pay his grazing fees for 20 years. The public is also probably wondering why so many other cowboys are supporting Mr. Bundy even though they paid their fees and Clive did not.

Calling All Oath Keepers to Stand Watch at Bundy Ranch
Updating With Stewart Rhodes
NOTE: First, at the moment things are quiet here. 99% of the rumors on the internet are either blatantly false or wildly inaccurate. No strong presence of federal agents has been seen. Remnants of BLM’s recent sojourn here are still present, such as the lights they had put up at their “field-headquarters” and no doubt we are under surveillance of all kinds, but there is no overt, visible massi

When NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden first emailed Glenn Greenwald, he insisted on using email encryption software called PGP for all communications. But this month, we learned that Snowden used another technology to keep his communications out of the NSA’s prying eyes. It’s called Tails. And naturally, nobody knows exactly who created it.
Tails is a kind of computer-in-a-box. You install it on a DVD or USB drive, boot up the computer from the drive and,

One of the diseases afflicting modernity is the assumption that every problem has (or should have) a solution, and every ill a cure. The latest item on the endless laundry list kept by the professional busybodies: texting and driving.
An interesting battlefront on the issue of distracted driving involves dueling statistical studies surrounding whether "distracted driving laws" alleviate or exacerbate the likelihood of car accidents. To a Jesuit-trained philosophy student
Muckraking journalist Matt Taibbi makes us look at what we might want to avoid, ignore. And he does it with a rage that compels us to keep looking. He’s gone after the lords of Wall Street as a “great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity.” This time out, he’s going after a great skewing, he says, of American justice. In an age of great inequality, says Taibbi, our rule of law has been subverted. Divided into two tiers. Free passes for the rich. Criminalization for the poor. T
Yesterday, YAL @ University of Duluth held our War on Youth tabling event. Overall, we had a lot of interest (especially with the "beer pong" buckets!) and plenty of informative materials to hand out. The giant debt banner was hung in a main walking corridor and will remain there for the rest of the semester as a reminder to students of the massive debt burden the federal government is placing on us all. Our tabling event lasted 2 hours and we had multiple new
Found this story linked from another one I just posted on people living in cars.
For months now, Mr. Smith has feared he might lose his current home, which is stationed on a street near a quiet Palo Alto park. An ordinance passed by Palo Alto last year would punish people cited for living in a vehicle with as much as a $1,000 fine or six months in jail.
"You're at risk of losing everything," Mr. Smith said recently. "It's a weird feeling that until you've lived this way, you don't realize what
