The Last Hour
That looks about right :
Taking aim at Jeb Bush, a group of leading New Hampshire conservatives and libertarians are preparing to stage their own caucus three months before the state’s first-in-the-nation primary — and then unify behind the winner.
Sick of the string of centrist GOP-ers who’ve dominated the state’s primary in recent years — including John McCain (twice) and Mitt Romney — conservatives and libertarians are hoping to defy the conventional wisdom that the Granite State is moderate-friendly turf between the evangelical-dominated Iowa caucuses and socially conservative South Carolina.
Another week gone by and another round of questionable moves by Rand Paul, who may have had one of his roughest weeks yet leading into his presumed presidential candidacy announcement on April 7th. Let’s hop right in.
Rand Proposes Defense Spending Bill That Will INCREASE Budget By $76.5Mil
One of the things we had previously enjoyed about Rand was his fiscal conservancy. His message was pure in that regard: cut the budget, decrease the size of government. However, the waters have become muddied to the point of being almost pitch black as of late, following Rand’s new budget proposal that actually seeks to give a massive boost to the defense budget. From TIME:
In an olive branch to defense hawks hell-bent on curtailing his White House ambitions, the libertarian [Writer's note: THIS is why Rand is so worrisome to libertarians in regards to public perception, because he is NOT a libertarian, but as we can see, is regularly referred to as such - Brian] Senator introduced a budget amendment late Wednesday calling for a nearly $190 billion infusion to the defense budget over the next two years—a roughly 16 percent increase.
A Shocking Admission: “The Federal Reserve is a Criminal Conspiracy”

Police abuse of Uber driver in New York City. In an unmarked car, the policeman was allegedly attempting to park without using his blinker at a green light. (His reverse lights weren't on. Likely double parked without hazards on.) The Uber driver pulled around and gestured that he should use his blinker, casually and non-offensively, and kept driving us. The policeman aggressively pulls up behind us and this is what happens.
(This occurred just before 2pm on the West side of Manhattan, in police precinct 6, on March 30th, 2015. The officer did not identify himself, but he had a New York license plate: GSS 8891)

A new report claims that Facebook secretly installs tracking cookies on users’ computers, allowing them to follow users around the internet even after they’ve left the website, deleted their account and requested to be no longer followed.
Academic researchers said that the report showed that the company was breaking European law with its tracking policies. The law requires that users are told if their computers are receiving cookies except for specific circumstances.
Facebook’s tracking — which it does so that it can tailor advertising — involves putting cookies or small pieces of software on users’ computers, so that they can then be followed around the internet. Such technology is used by almost every website, but European law requires that users are told if they are being given cookies or being tracked. Companies don’t have to tell users if the cookies are required to connect to a service or if they are needed to give the user information that they have specifically requested.
I've seen Assad interviewed before and he always seems very poignant and eloquent.
Charlie, as always, tries to steer the discussion towards MSM/Government propaganda and Assad clearly sees right through this.
Sorry Charlie: You think you can trust Parliament w/ this power? Ha!
You can't trust an 'Independent' body! (like us);
You aren't binding the money supply to a tangible commodity.
So don't expect anything 'Revolutionary' to happen. (too bad) :(
REYKJAVIK (AFP) - Here
Iceland's government said Tuesday it would consider a revolutionary monetary proposal removing the power of commercial banks to create money and handing it to the central bank.

Joni Mitchell has been hospitalized, according to the singer's official Twitter. "We are awaiting official word on her condition and will post it here as soon as we know," the tweet said.
It’s clear the PFIC rules are part of the long-term trend of the US government using burdensome regulations to effectively shrink the number of options available to you.
U.S. Army Musician Explains Why He Is Seeking Conscientious Objector Status on the Lions of Liberty PodcastSubmitted by Marc Clair on Wed, 04/01/2015 - 13:20
In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, I welcome in fellow podcast host, James Newcomb of the Outside the Music Box podcast. James describes how he first found his passion in music, and how that led to a job as a musician with the U.S. army. James then details how he became acquainted with libertarian ideas, and how those ideas began the questioning of his role in the U.S. Army, eventually leading to his request for a discharge under conscientious objector status. James and I discuss the process to attain this status, why James is taking this route instead of just walking away, and what military defense might look like in a more ideal world. James then describes how he has channelled his energy into the Outside the Music Box, and as usual I end the show with my wrap-up rant!
