Can Ron Paul and Conservative Evangelicals Save a Texas Death-Row Inmate - Mother Jones

Mother Jones:

Trial transcripts, medical records, and expert witness testimony have documented that Panetti suffers from severe schizophrenia. He believes Texas is going to execute him to stop him from preaching the gospel—not because he shaved his head, donned camo fatigues, and shot and killed his in-laws in 1992. The Supreme Court has declared that executing the mentally ill violates the Eighth Amendment's prohibition on cruel and unusual punishment, but several Texas and federal courts—including the US Supreme Court—have reviewed Panetti's case, and each one has ruled that the state can proceed with his lethal injection. Now, with Panetti’s execution scheduled for December 3, the only thing that might save him is a national campaign being mounted by conservatives, including former Texas Republican congressman and libertarian icon Ron Paul.

Happy Thanksgiving Michael...

...and to all the DailyPaul community.

Right here is the greatest bastion of liberty I know of.

Maybe we're giving our founders a little to be proud of after all their sacrifices.

Because sadly if there were here today, they would not recognize this country as the sanctuary for individual liberty which they had envisioned.

The fascist "tobacco free" movement

I recently graduated college with a master's degree in engineering. I have recently discovered that many of the places I have been hoping to work for have recently become "tobacco free", meaning no smoking on the premises. The irony is that the tobacco free clause is usually included in the same policy section with the equal opportunity and anti-discrimination clauses. Unfortunately, my experience and interest is in research and development, but this seems to be the area most affected by these policies.

Not Long From Now

Not Long From Now

Not long from now she’ll ask me,
While sitting on my knee,
About the ringing of the Bell again,
And the revival of liberty.

Then I’ll tell her of the rise,
Of Leviathan and his lies,
Of how we woke up again,
And tyranny’s demise.

I’ll tell her about our movement started by Ron Paul,
And about the oppressor and how we made him fall,
I’ll tell her how we stood tall again,
While responding to the call.

And the ringing of the Bell again,
Proclaiming liberty to all.

Let's fly a message over Ferguson!

Let's fly this message (or a similar message) behind a plane and over the city of Ferguson ASAP.

"Ferguson: Want to reduce crime and police brutality? Practice Open Carry!"

There are a few reasons I think we should do this...

  • It is good advice for the people of Ferguson AND for communities that have a problem with high rates of crime and/or police brutality.
  • It puts us in control of, or at least inserts us into, the Ferguson debate.
  • It would get a lot of attention from the media (probably national) and from the people of Ferguson.

Daily Dose of Ferguson Keeps Amnesty Executive Orders Off the Front Page.

Imagine that?

A distraction. You would think we would all be used to it by now.

But these distractions are so overwhelming, so "important", so craved by the American public, that we MUST watch them, we MUST critique them, we MUST "understand" what happened. You are programmed to think you want to know until a week, two weeks later and then, wait a minute, what about that amnesty issue?

Too late. That's old news, isn't it?

Something else comes down the line to distract.

We need something to get us to the football playoffs and the holiday season so here it is. An event that was, really, a non-event. According to witness testimony the homicide was justified. Was it?

Eric Holder will now take his turn at the podium for Chapter 2 as the amnesty issue must REALLY be ignored for awhile longer.

What about those 12 million illegal immigrants that just got added to the welfare roles, MSM?

Crickets.

Rand Paul on Ferguson: Politicians' Wars on Drugs and Poverty are to Blame

The latter half of this op-ed by Rand Paul sounds thrillingly like a nominating convention acceptance speech. As the only presumptive presidential candidate to even visit Ferguson, Rand has more cred when discussing this issue than any other Republican. And people are taking note.

Kevin Glass commented on Rand's article on TownHall.com, saying, "Sen. Rand Paul is perhaps the Republican politician most attempting to create positive change out of the tragedy that occurred in Ferguson, Missouri. He has consistently made the case that it is government dysfunction and mismanagement that created the backdrop for the sense of injustice in the St. Louis suburb."

In the search for culpability for the tragedy in Ferguson, I mostly blame politicians. Michael Brown’s death and the suffocation of Eric Garner in New York for selling untaxed cigarettes indicate something is wrong with criminal justice in America. The War on Drugs has created a culture of violence and put police in a nearly impossible situation. […]

The REAL Ferguson Conspiracy

The REAL Ferguson Conspiracy

HOW DID THIS CASE GET PICKED???

Everyone has been railroaded by the media into a box canyon. Yes, there are thousands of bloodthirsty killer-cops out there. No, Darren Wilson is not one of them and the verdict was correct.

We were all duped, the innocent Gentle Giant walking while black gunned down in cold blood....

We were roped in.

Then the other facts dribbled out: Brown was stoned. Brown robbed the cigar shop. Brown attacked the cop. Etc.

YOU ARE SHEEPLE! You should have given up the ghost a long time ago.

RT Anchor Interview Redacted By CNN After She Criticizes Network As Toeing State Department Line

A discussion between CNN’s Christiane Amanpour and RT’s Anissa Naouai degraded into a tense back and forth on Friday, resulting in Naouai’s criticisms of CNN and its coverage of international affairs being cut from the finalized interview that was broadcast.

After repeated questions which, according to Naouai, implied her impartiality was lacking, the RT host responded by questioning Amanpour’s own impartiality and potential conflicts of interest when it comes to US military interventions.

These comments never made it on air.

Ben Swann speaks to Naouai herself for a reaction.

What about Eric Garner (In my opinion, a true libertarian)

#ItStopsToday

I have been frustrated about this since the latest set of riots.

The media picked this "Officer involved shooting" because it was a divisive issue. Because divisive politics is what fuels the media machine in this country. Because tribal "Us against Them" narratives are what sells.

They didn't pick Eric Garner, what happened two weeks prior! AND WE HAVE BEEN COMPLICIT! This is Trayvon Martin all over again!

And liberals have been complicit!!! Where is the outrage about Eric Garners cold blooded murder???

Liberals don't care about him, because he owned a business, sold cigarettes, and didn't pay his taxes!

They don't care, because like a man, he stood up bravely against the leviathan and said "It ends today"! And where is the indictment of his cold blooded murderer??? Nobody knows! Nobody cares, because they are to busy talking about Mike Brown, the convenience store thug, and whether or not he deserved to die!
