The Last Hour
Dateline December 24, 2014
"Russian investigators have interviewed as a witness a former Ukrainian airbase employee who suggested in a newspaper interview earlier this week that flight MH17 was possibly downed by a Ukrainian air-to-air missile, Russian Investigative Committee representative said Wednesday.
So sorry this post is needed year after year; please repost everywhere it may do some good:
A South Dakota couple – Molly Bowling and Michael Becker – is preparing for a Christmas without their three children—who are now in the state’s custody. The two took their 2-month-old son Creedance to the ER when he began crying uncontrollably and his tongue appeared to be cut – they had no idea how the injury had occurred. They were told Creedance needed to stay at the hospital overnight. Mike Becker asked for a lawyer and their other two children were taken by Child Protective Services.
When I first realized that things were wrong in our world, I immediately wanted to fight to make things right, and I got involved in politics. I worked on a few campaigns and managed a congressional campaign.
I eventually noticed a pattern - all of the campaigns were completely ignored by the media no matter how much work we put into them, and I came to believe that until we changed the media, we’d always be on the losing end of things.
I wanted to share a liberty minded Christmas gift that I am giving to my nephew, and I'd love to hear any other liberty minded gift ideas anybody else has.
I sent my nephew the following letter along with a copy of Whatever Happened To Penny Candy? (which I heard about on the Tom Woods show of course):
Since the rise of the internet people have changed from mere audiences into authors and editors. With pieces of technology small enough to fit the whole world into your pocket, a revolution might be on its way. The net is now mightier than the sword. This presentation was delivered at the TEDxGroningen conference in the Netherlands on November 20, 2014.
In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, I welcome in the Libertarians in Living Rooms Drinking Liquor for our 2nd annual Holiday Special! I am joined by Brian McWilliams, John Odermatt, Howie Snowdon and the debuting Rico to hand out our Lions of Liberty Naughty or Nice Awards for 2014 over a few adult beverages. The crew discuss Rand Paul, Barack Obama, the Sony / Interview hacking, Cliven Bundy, Darren Wilson and so much, much more! Grab your egg nog and gather the whole family around for this look back at the year in liberty!
Beyond addictions of caffeine, alcohol, marijuana, the internet, work, etc. exists a high level addiction.
Eckhart Tolle takes it all the way up the chain to thinking. Most of us are addicted to thinking. We're thinkaholics,
Google is trying to spell check that for me, and it does not compute. Everyone thinks The Google knows everything, but it doesn't know about the "Thinkaholic."
In the spirit of the season (the spirit is harsh, blanket judgement), the website Mediaite conducted a survey of cable news hosts from CNN, Fox News and MSNBC which asked respondents to rank their colleagues from best to worst. Unsurprisingly (or, perhaps, surprisingly since Bill O’Reilly was nominated in the same category), Sean Hannity was voted Worst Host on Fox News.
Hannity was really sad and mad about it and had to stomp around Twitter to cool off.
@TheMattWilstein Lets do the BEST OF MEDIAITE CONCHA. ALL THE REST OF U MEDIAMATTERS WANNABEES SUCK IMHO . #badge of honor
"So, while we’ll never know if the Amano ploy would have been tried – since Manning’s disclosures made it unfeasible – it surely would not have been unprecedented. The American people experienced similar deceptions during the run-up to war with Iraq when the Bush-43 administration assembled every scrap of suspicion about Iraq’s alleged WMD and fashioned a bogus case for war.
Eventually, Manning was pulled into that war as a young intelligence analyst. He confronted so much evidence of brutality and dishonesty that he felt compelled to do something about it. What he did in leaking hundreds of thousands of documents to WikiLeaks and, thus, to other news outlets was to supply “ground truth” about war crimes committed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Of course, they don't show the follow up that this was a single mom trying her best to raise her son safely, which is why he knew where the gun was, because she was responsible to teach him to respect it–that it is not a toy.
