The Last Hour
by Ron Paul | Sunday July 27, 2014
Remember back in April, 2007, when then-CIA director George Tenet appeared on 60 Minutes, angrily telling the program host, “we don’t torture people”? Remember a few months later, in October, President George W. Bush saying, “this government does not torture people”? We knew then it was not true because we had already seen the photos of Iraqis tortured at Abu Ghraib prison four years earlier.
Still the US administration denied that torture was torture, preferring to call it “enhanced interrogation” and claiming that it had disrupted so many terrorist plots. Of course, we later found out that the CIA had not only lied about the torture of large numbers of people after 9/11, but it had vastly exaggerated any valuable information that came from such practices.
However secret rendition of prisoners to other places was ongoing.
"My accomplishments as Secretary of State? Well, I'm glad you asked! My proudest accomplishment in which I take the most pride, mostly because of the opposition it faced early on, you know. The remnants of prior situations and mindsets that were too narrowly focused in a manner whereby they may have overlooked the bigger picture and we didn't do that and I'm proud of that. Very proud. I would say that's a major accomplishment."
- Hillary Clinton, 11 March 2014

Border patrol agents pulled a gun on Mid Iowa Boy Scout Troop 111 as four vanloads of scouts tried to drive from Canada into Alaska.
The scout leaders were furious.
POLICING AMERICA: SECURITY VS. LIBERTY
by John Stossel | July 25, 2014
Saturday and Sunday at 10PM on Fox News Channel
Where's the line between security and liberty? American police are now armed like the military; they use their power more often and forcefully than ever before. The state has new and expanding powers to spy on almost everything you do.
THE WARRIOR COP: SWAT teams were once called out only in emergencies. Now there are almost 100 raids a day. The weapons and tactics they use come straight from the military. Sometimes innocent people are killed. Why use so much force so often? What would you do if armed men in masks broke down your door in the middle of the night?
CONSTITUTION-FREE ZONES: Lots of Americans are getting upset about being detained by armed border patrol agents not on the border but miles away from the border. Some push back, sometimes with violent results.
MANDATORY MINIMUMS: Do mandatory minimum sentences work? Prosecutors like them because they give them more power when they plea bargain with suspects. But judges often object, and sometimes people serve long sentences for trivial crimes. Or no crime.
A House Republican decided he’d had enough with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce stance on amnesty and China by refusing an award from the organization.
MH17: A Doomed Flight Path
A Malaysian Airlines spokesman has already confirmed that, for some unknown reason, Kiev-based Ukrainian Air Traffic Control (ATC) ordered MH17 off of its original flight path along the international air route, known as L980. ...

"Ron Paul does not speak for his son, Rand. Rand does not speak for his dad. They are two separate and distinct individuals. Neocons ignore this obvious point to try to make trouble, which is, after all, their role in life."
The Week: Mitt Romney 2014?
Americans are so down on President Obama at the moment that, if they could do the 2012 election all over again, they'd overwhelmingly back the former Massachusetts governor's bid. That's just one finding in a brutal CNN poll, released Sunday, which shows Romney topping Obama in a re-election rematch by a whopping nine-point margin, 53 percent to 44 percent. That's an even larger spread than CNN found in November, when a survey had Romney winning a redo 49 percent to 45 percent.
Federal Judge Rules DC Ban On Handguns Unconstitutional
Court ordered city to allow residents and non residents carry handguns outside their homes..
WASHINGTON Sat Jul 26, 2014 8:05pm EDT
(Reuters) - A federal judge on Saturday overturned Washington D.C.'s ban on carrying handguns outside the home, saying it was unconstitutional.
In a marvelous example of leading from behind, the New York Times breathlessly reports today that it suddenly supports marijuana legalization. This has led to widespread speculation among observers: who or whom let granny out of the basement?
These photos are horrific; the destruction of Gaza...this is horrible...why does our country support this?
As a 12-hour pause begins in Gaza, residents returned to their streets and surveyed what was left of their neighborhoods. Eight-five new bodies were dug out of rubble Saturday morning, and ambulances were still trying to reach other areas in Gaza.
According to reports, the destruction in the past 48 hours far exceeds previous Gaza wars.
"Governments do not dictate major policy, major multinational corporations do. We’ve seen this time and time again, and one of the best examples out there is Monsanto. This time, the United States government wants to force GMO seeds on El Salvadorian farmers.
