It's Time For The Third Continental Congress
As much as we liberty-loving, Constitution-loving, America-loving patriots hate to admit it, the government in Washington, D.C., is NOT fixable. The elitist power structure in D.C. is too ensconced and too powerful. They will never cede power to folks, such as Justin Amash, Thomas Massie, etc., who truly believe in limited government. Nor will they permit the states to reclaim ANY of their constitutionally recognized powers. And neither party in D.C. has enough Ron Paul-types to thwart the evil machinations of the power-drunk leviathan that is Washington, D.C.
Furthermore, the same forces of darkness that control the political establishment in Washington, D.C., also control the media and financial establishments in New York City. The voters of America have too often rejected the presidential and congressional candidates who had the potential to help lead our ship of state to safer waters (if we even have untainted elections). The warnings of the prophets and porters have fallen on deaf ears. For the most part, Americans refuse to dislodge themselves from their addiction to government handouts. In addition, America’s pastors have largely abandoned their calling to be watchmen on the wall, which has left our ship of state without a moral compass or a spiritual rudder.
It is only a matter of time before freedomists will be forced to do what freedomists have always been forced to do when facing a tyrannical juggernaut: declare independence.
1. Seedlings: Squashes like company, start 2 or 3 to a pot and keep them together.
2. Potatoes: They grow UP - plant them in a trench and keep piling dirt and straw on them as they grow, leaving just the top sets of leaves above ground. The places where other leaves started to grow will become roots - taters!
It's official. The Internet will now be regulated as a public utility.
After months of anticipation and weeks of frenzied last-minute lobbying on both sides of the political aisle, the Federal Communications Commission has adopted Net neutrality regulations based on a new definition of broadband that will allow the government to regulate Internet infrastructure like the old telephone network.

A liberty activist and co-organizer of Arms Expo 2015 was arrested this morning outside the federal courthouse in Spokane as he attended a states’ rights rally with his family.

American technology companies are losing business on a major scale. The NSA will be responsible for wiping out the United States as a leader in computer science all because they have to listen to the entire world like an old woman addicted to soap operas. I find myself totally shocked at Microsoft. I purchased the latest office at a store. You then have to go online to download the program. They REQUIRE you to have a Microsoft Account. The worse part of this was they demanded I enter a credit card to PROVE who I was acknowledging it would not be used since I already paid for it. I simply refused. They will not refund your money so this is the latest consumer fraud. It is not disclosed that you must PROVE who you are now to use their software. This has gone way too far. There are alternatives out there for word like LibreOffice, and Gnumeric is a better spreadsheet than excel for it can open files excel cannot. There are alternatives to Powerpoint and of course there are alternatives to Outlook such as Thunderbird.
The question is WHY should I have to PROVE who I am to Microsoft to use a product I already paid for? Something just smells funny so the only choice was to walk away and they stole my money for nothing. There are plenty of alternatives and Microsoft just lost all our business.
If Rand Paul were Commander in Chief, his strategy for fighting Islamic militants in the Middle East would start with the Kurds.
“I would arm the Kurds directly,” the Republican Senator and potential presidential candidate told Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric. The two sat down in Washington Wednesday just hours after the FBI announced it had arrested three men charged with plotting to join the Islamic State, or ISIS, and stage attacks against the United States.
Despite urging Congress to make an official declaration of war—for the first time since World War II—against ISIS last November, [http://news.yahoo.com/senator-rand-paul-calls-declaration-war-against-islamic-152703093.html] the Kentucky Senator’s reputation as an isolationist still precedes him. Dismissing that as a “mischaracterization,” Paul told Couric he’s not willing to send American troops to fight anywhere if the people who live there are not also willing to fight.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) got a major ally Tuesday in his endeavor to run for both president and the U.S. Senate at the same time: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Paul has asked the Kentucky Republican Party to hold a presidential caucus in 2016, rather than have residents choose their presidential nominee in the state's primary.
Why? Kentucky law prohibits a candidate from appearing on the ballot for two offices. Paul announced late last year that he's running to keep his Senate seat and said this week that he is leaning toward a presidential run. A caucus doesn't have ballots, and the proposed contest would choose only the presidential nominee; voters would choose nominees for other offices, including the Senate, during the May primary.
In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, host Marc Clair convenes another session of our wildly popular feature, “Libertarians in Living Rooms Drinking Liquor” (LILDL.) Marc welcomes back Brian McWilliams, John Odermatt and J.B. Lubin to discuss current events over a few adult beverages. After the gang gets acquainted and discusses their drinks of choice for the evening, the we react to some recently acclaimed films such as “Citizen Four” and “American Sniper.” Marc and Brian wage a battle over cheap plugs as the LILDL’s discuss recent Lions of Liberty articles such as the diabetic blogger’s defeat of a gag order for “unlicensed nutritional advice” and the 72-year-old New Jersey man facing prison for possessing an antique pistol. Things then get contentious as the topic of guns inspires some heated, booze-fueled debate.
So grab your favorite adult beverage (or perhaps a hot cocoa if you’re underage!), sit back in your favorite comfy chair, and hang with the Libertarians in Living Rooms Drinking Liquor!
A remarkable report from Spencer Ackerman at The Guardian has revealed in detail the existence of an interrogation facility used by Chicago police to detain and hold people in secret. The report describes how police have used a "nondescript warehouse" to keep detainees out of booking databases, beat prisoners, shackle them for "prolonged periods," and keep them from legal counsel for up to 24 hours — including even children as young as 15.

Ukraine To Halt Currency Trading Again Any Minute
As Ukraine's socio-economic situation goes from wost to worst-er, today's announcement by President Poroshenko that the government will take actions to stabilize the currency (which as we previously noted, appears to be heading for hyperinflation) has Ukrainians rushing for the exits into precious metals... with only one goal in mind - wealth preservation.
