The Last Hour
Former Rep. Ron Paul’s push to audit the Federal Reserve got another boost Wednesday when the House passed the bill for the second time in three years, and by a bigger margin than before.
The bill, now sponsored by Rep. Paul Broun, Georgia Republican, was approved on a 333-92 vote, with all but one Republican and 106 Democrats in favor of it. That’s a major jump from last time, when a majority of Democrats voted against it.
This Appalling Practice Is Only Used in Two Nations—And the US Is One of Them
"The UN has condemned one country for “using extortion, threats of violence” to collect taxes. It then turns a blind eye to another country doing exactly the same thing… but much worse."
From Amash's Facebook Page:
What have we learned from the last decade of war?
Those years should have taught us that when going to war, our government must:
(1) be careful when defining a military mission,
(2) speak forthrightly with the American people about the sacrifices they will be called to make,
(3) plan more than one satisfactory end to the conflict, and
(4) be humble about what we think we know.
These lessons should be at the front of our minds when Congress votes today on whether to arm groups in Syria.
Senator John McCain attempted to respond to his very own gaffe by attacking Senator Paul. The comments on the Fox Facebook post are priceless…
“Sen. Paul has obviously been doing some somersaults as these beheadings took place, and the American people's opinion has shifted rather dramatically. He has even said I met with ISIS, which is patently false.”
The top comments are not looking good for John McCain...
The top 'liked' comment is, "Both parties are scared of Rand...I love it!"

Next year, come May 7th, 2015, will be the 100th 'anniversary' of the sinking of the RMS Lusitania...

By no means have I followed this deeply, but have been reading the headlines, and came upon these; recent, newly de-classified UK govt files revealed the fact that their 1982 salvage team feared the existence of live munitions exploding on them, during the salvage operations; was prompted by a reply on another thread:
Cruz said, “We should not permit them to return to America.” Those joining a violent group would automatically lose all of their rights as Americans citizens and are to be labeled traitors. Maybe so, or maybe not, but the constitution speaks to the serious nature of convicting an American citizen of treason.
(NaturalNews) Have you noticed the incredible detachment from reality exhibited by the masses these days? The continued operation of modern society, it seems, depends on people making sure they don't acknowledge reality (or try to deal with it). "Denial" is what keeps every sector of civilization humming along: medicine, finance, government, agriculture and more.
The trouble with the denial approach is that eventually the lies collide with reality. Until that day comes, however, happy-go-lucky Americans are merrily enjoying their courtship with self delusion, repeating the following 37 lies to themselves as if they were true:
Lie #1) All FDA-approved medications are safe to consume in any combination, because the FDA protects the public.
Lie #2) Food prices keep going up because inflation is a natural force that can't be halted.
Here is a new chart from Sharelynx showing the correlation of U.S. debt vs. the price of gold.
You'll notice an almost direct correlation between the US debt levels and the price of gold from 2000-2013.
From 2013 through the present, however, that correlation has diverted significantly.
2013 was the year when massive naked short selling of gold began taking place.
Take a look:

“I tell you, freedom and human rights in America are doomed. The U.S. government will lead the American people in — and the West in general — into an unbearable hell and a choking life.”—Osama bin Laden (October 2001), as reported by CNN
What a strange and harrowing road we’ve walked since September 11, 2001, littered with the debris of our once-vaunted liberties. We have gone from a nation that took great pride in being a model of a representative democracy to being a model of how to persuade a freedom-loving people to march in lockstep with a police state.
What began with the passage of the USA Patriot Act in October 2001 has snowballed into the eradication of every vital safeguard against government overreach, corruption and abuse. Since then, we have been terrorized, traumatized, and tricked into a semi-permanent state of compliance. The bogeyman’s names and faces change over time—Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein and now ISIS—but the end result remains the same: our unquestioning acquiescence to anything the government wants to do in exchange for the phantom promise of safety and security.
Ironically, just a short week after the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we find ourselves commemorating the 227th anniversary of the ratification of our Constitution. Yet while there is much to mourn about the loss of our freedoms in the years since 9/11, there has been little to celebrate.
