War on Youth week for The University of Texas at Austin's YAL Chapter was a week that revealed two things about the flagship campus:
Many of the passers-by at our table expressed concern for the national debt, especially after seeing the colossal liberty pong solo cups,
We had a very productive day on the 16th here at Cal State-Dominguez Hills, when we tabled for four hours outside the student union. We signed up more people and had also more things going on. People would come up to us and thank us for what we were doing and also take some free materials. We had two professors who came up to our booth and ask about what we were about. The game of debt pong also helps to attract people to our table and even the fraternity brothers
Over the last few weeks, Grove City College Young Americans for Liberty has hosted three great lectures from Grove City professors.
On March 24, Dr. Gary Smith, professor of history, spoke on religious liberty and how it has been treated by recent US presidents including Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush. It was a very informative lecture on how these presidents, despite some of their other policies, were generally very friendly to religious liberties.
The first YAL chapter meeting here @ Tompkins Cortland Community College (TC3) was incredible success. More than a dozen student attended, and many people said they would bring a friend to the next meeting. Students here are having serious problems with campus police and this looks to be a major catalyst for our chapter. We have just conducted our 1st tabling event and look to have another next week.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The Bureau of Land Management rounded up a horse herd that roamed for decades on federal land in northwest Wyoming and handed the horses over to Wyoming officials. They, in turn, sold the herd to the highest bidder, a Canadian slaughterhouse.
Wild horse advocates are incensed, saying they should have had a chance to intercede in the March roundup and auction. But the BLM says the horses were abandoned — not wild — and that it publicized the sale beforehand.
The Red River is the boundary between Texas and Oklahoma…or is it?
Byers, Texas along the Red River — The BLM stole 140 acres of the Tommy Henderson ranch thirty years ago. They took his land and paid him absolutely nothing. He sued and lost. Now the BLM is using that court case as precedent to do it again. The problem is, the land they want to seize is property that ranchers have a deed for and have paid taxes on for over a hundred years.
According to several reports breaking on social media Wednesday, federal agents targeting the Bundy Ranch in Clark County, Nev. did much more than merely herd hundreds of cows away from the site prior to backing down from their position Saturday. The following graphic images are being distributed by the Bundy Ranch as proof that multiple head of cattle were slaughtered, apparently under the direction of federal Bureau of Land Management officers.
...Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman sent a letter to Barack Obama, Department of the Interior Sec. Sally Jewell, and BLM Director Neil Kornze, laying out his position that any such action by the agency would violate the U.S. Constitution.

April 17, 2014
For over 20 years, the Bureau of Land Management engaged in a “literal, intentional conspiracy” against Nevada ranchers to force them out of business, according to a federal judge whose court opinion exposes the BLM’s true intent against rancher Cliven Bundy.

The Washington team left Nevada yesterday. Before they left, Gavin recorded a brief call to action by Stewart Rhodes, founder of OathKeepers:
Oklahoma residents who produce their own energy through solar panels or small wind turbines on their property will now be charged an additional fee, the result of a new bill passed by the state legislature and expected to be signed into law by Gov. Mary Fallin (R).
On Monday, S.B. 1456 passed the state House 83-5 after no debate. The measure creates a new class of customers: those who install distributed power generation systems like solar panels or small wind turbines on their property and sell

Senator Harry Reid has escalated the war of words over the Cliven Bundy dispute, sensationally labeling the Nevada cattle rancher’s supporters “domestic terrorists” during an event in Las Vegas today.
During a ‘Hashtags & Headlines’ event at the Paris Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Reid referred to Bundy supporters as “Nothing more than domestic terrorists,” adding, “I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism.”
Once we had a thread here that was lost in a site upgrade from years ago, simply titled The Chicken Thread. I believe it was originally Mike Lawson's, but its been a few years, so for now I credit it to him. But to our dismay, The Chicken Thread was lost long ago, during the site upgrades. A few have been re-kindled but just didn't fly.
So, in light of chicken lovers, and people who enjoy providing for oneself and their family, we release a new chicken thread. And now that you can embed
Not that I think this is a lead up to a false flag or anything, but it is something to be aware of. And I'm kind of glad that I'm going to be out of town for this year's marathon.

In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, I am joined by Dr. Murray Sabrin, Professor of Finance at Ramapo College and Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in New Jersey. Dr. Sabrin describes how he and his family came to America from West Germany after surviving the Holocaust, before going on to discuss how he became a libertarian, studying with Murray Rothbard, and what he hopes to achieve with his Senate campaign. I also get Dr. Sabrin’s thoughts on several topics including U.S. f
"(R-Mich.) Rep. Justin Amash is enjoying wide support for his campaign, which is looking and more and more like it will end with him keeping his congressional seat.
