The Last Hour
An extemporaneous speech that was beautifully delivered by Nigel Farage. "This Party is not about left and right. This party is about right and wrong."

A former Vatican archbishop accused of paedophilia stored tens of thousands of child porn videos and photos on a computer in his office at the Holy See diplomatic compound in the Dominican Republic, it has emerged.

The Revenge of Rand Paul
The Senator has fought to go mainstream with the ideology that he shares with his father. How far can that strategy take him?
BY RYAN LIZZA - October 6, 2014 Issue
At 8 A.M. on a Friday in late July, Senator Rand Paul, of Kentucky, stood before a predominantly African-American audience of about a hundred at an Urban League conference in Cincinnati. An ophthalmologist before he was a senator, Paul has spent much of his career in surgical scrubs, but he was dressed nattily, in a charcoal suit and a red rep tie. His typically unkempt curls, which give him the look of a philosophy student lost in thought, were restrained with the help of a hair product. His aides had been promoting the talk for weeks, as part of a yearlong effort to reintroduce himself to political constituencies—on both the left and the right—that may have reason to distrust him. In the next few months, he is planning to deliver a major speech on foreign policy; like race, it is an area in which Paul has encountered strident opposition.
Paul began with the story of Clyde Kennard, a black man in Mississippi who was jailed in 1960 on false charges after he tried to enroll at an all-white college. “Despite our progress,” Paul said, “there are Clyde Kennards today who can’t fully access the franchise because they’re handicapped by either educational or judicial systems.” He laid out a criminal-justice-reform package he has introduced in the Senate to end mandatory minimum-sentencing laws, expunge nonviolent felonies from criminals’ records, reclassify some felonies as misdemeanors, and restore voting rights to citizens who had committed a nonviolent felony. Like Barack Obama, he vowed to free many people imprisoned for crack cocaine, and he announced a new proposal to end the sentencing disparity between crack and powder cocaine. He had even spoken with the President about it—not something about which a Republican would normally boast: “I talked to him last week and said, ‘I will help in any way I can.’ ”
...another great Crosstalk program on RT...
I commend the producers for finding this stooge who would advance the notion that Assad created ISIS...to create a 'greater evil' in order to paint himself as a 'lesser evil'!
WATCH the MSM and FoxNews and conservative blab talk radio run with this narrative - for every moment that passes by, until Assad is toppled!!!
Up until the 1970s, color photography was extremely rare, and so when we think about history prior to that time, we often envision it in black and white. Today’s technology now enables us to “colorize” historical photos, giving us our only chance at seeing what the world really looked like back then. And it was truly spectacular. Take a trip back in time through these photos below. It’s quite incredible to see Abraham Lincoln and Albert Einstein in living color.
Here's a little taster...

Layin it straight out... with a hat tip to Ron Paul.
What do you want to see happen? In the short term AND the long run. What do you want to see happen?
If it is that more people wake up, what will that look like?
Do you want to see a change in the way people are "represented" in DC? Even if you do not consider the state legitimate, what way do you want to see government lose its legitimacy?
If it is to change minds, what is going to happen once peoples minds are changed?
What will success look like to you? When will you have achieved your goal? Why is your goal what it is?

It’s hard to keep the American people engaged with foreign affairs: notoriously "isolationist," we just can’t stay interested in the various overseas "threats" our rulers would have us in a panic over. While Al Qaeda was Washington’s biggest "success" in this regard – the 9/11 attacks really got everyone’s attention and managed to keep Americans focused on the absolute necessity of gutting our Constitution and rampaging over half the earth – that was some thirteen year ago. The assassination of Osama bin Laden, and two drawn-out and absolutely disastrous wars – both ending in what looks dismayingly like defeat – have pretty much exhausted everyone’s patience. The "war on terrorism" launched by George W. Bush with such dramatic fanfare was in danger of petering out, ending not with a bang – or a victory – but without even any acknowledgment on the part of our wise rulers that it was a) over, and b) a horrific failure.
Yet the blowback from our obtusely wrongheaded policies continues to play havoc with the international landscape, destabilizing governments throughout the Middle East and putting Americans and American interests at risk around the globe. The political class is united in the belief that Washington has to Do Something – after all, our National Prestige is at stake!
