Catherine Austin Fitts - Gregg Hunter: Awesome video

I watched this awesome interview by Greg Hunter of Catherine Austin Fitts that talks about the banking system and how the government system is dependent on it, some comparison to nazi-germany, how to fix it (because the government is not capable to fix it) and alot more. The video is being deleted all over youtube, 3 out of 4 have been deleted. This is the last one I have found that isn't deleted.

Fellow rancher’s viral letter explains so much about why ranchers support ‘hero’ Bundy.

"There have been a lot of people criticizing Clive Bundy because he did not pay his grazing fees for 20 years. The public is also probably wondering why so many other cowboys are supporting Mr. Bundy even though they paid their fees and Clive did not.

Feds accused of leaving trail of wreckage after Nevada Bundy ranch standoff

The federal agency that backed down over the weekend in a tense standoff with a Nevada rancher is being accused of leaving a trail of wreckage behind.

Fox News toured the damage -- allegedly caused by the Bureau of Land Management -- which included holes in water tanks and destroyed water lines and fences. According to family friends, the bureau's hired "cowboys" also killed two prize bulls.

Harry Reid reaped $1.1 million from sale of land he didn't own

WASHINGTON — Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid collected a $1.1 million windfall on a Las Vegas land sale even though he hadn't personally owned the property for three years, property deeds show.

In the process, Reid did not disclose to Congress an earlier sale in which he transferred his land to a company created by a friend and took a financial stake in that company, according to records and interviews.

What is the single most expensive ingredient in beer? Guess.

The Beer Institute points out that “taxes are the single most expensive ingredient in beer, costing more than labor and raw materials combined.” They cite an economic analysis that found “if all the taxes levied on the production, distribution, and retailing of beer are added up, they amount to more than 40% of the retail price” (note that this may include general sales tax and federal beer taxes, which are not included in the estimates displayed on the map). Last year, we did a podcast with Lester Jones, Chief Economist at the Beer Institute on tax treatment of beer, which is worth a listen.

Does Cliven Bundy Have Something Called “Prescriptive Rights” (Ben Swann)

By Ben Swann.

In this ongoing story surrounding cattle rancher Cliven Bundy, there are a series of questions media has ignored. For instance, in the 20 years Bundy hasn’t been paying his fees, why hasn’t he been taken to court? Why this year, spend nearly $1,000,000 of taxpayer money to round up 400 cattle that ultimately have to be returned? Why didn’t the BLM just place a lien on the cattle rather than attempting to take them by force and then auction them off? The Bureau of Land Management has suffered a huge black eye this week because of their response to the Bundy situation. Perhaps though, there is a reason the BLM chose force over the courts.

Among the questions Devlin asked of the BLM, “Is it possible that this guy (Cliven Bundy) has prescriptive rights?” The response from top officials at the BLM, “We are worried that he might and he might use that defense.”

So what exactly are prescriptive rights? Prescriptive right to property is an easement that gives some one the right to use land owned by someone else for a particular purpose. An example is using a path through Party A’s land to get to your land, a prescriptive easement is allowed which gives the user the right to get to his land through A’s property.

Ron Paul Should Follow the Example of Clive Bundy

I just read the email from Ron Paul regarding the IRS demand on the Campaign for Liberty to produce donor information and pay a fine and I gotta say I was not impressed. In fact I was disappointed and offended that he would suggest that they might not have any choice but to pay the fine and turn over the donor info.

Clive Bundy wouldn't turn it over. He wouldn't worry about court orders. He would force their hand. What are they going to do? Put Ron in jail? Would we let that happen? Of course not.

Is there anyone in our movement who would suggest that C4L turn over the info?

Calling All Oath Keepers to Stand Watch at Bundy Ranch

April 15th, 2014
Calling All Oath Keepers to Stand Watch at Bundy Ranch

Updating With Stewart Rhodes

NOTE: First, at the moment things are quiet here. 99% of the rumors on the internet are either blatantly false or wildly inaccurate. No strong presence of federal agents has been seen. Remnants of BLM’s recent sojourn here are still present, such as the lights they had put up at their “field-headquarters” and no doubt we are under surveillance of all kinds, but there is no overt, visible massing of federal law enforcement.

Tails: Inside the Operating System Edward Snowden Used to Evade the NSA

BY Klint Finley | Wired | 04.14.14

When NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden first emailed Glenn Greenwald, he insisted on using email encryption software called PGP for all communications. But this month, we learned that Snowden used another technology to keep his communications out of the NSA’s prying eyes. It’s called Tails. And naturally, nobody knows exactly who created it.

Tails is a kind of computer-in-a-box. You install it on a DVD or USB drive, boot up the computer from the drive and, voila, you’re pretty close to anonymous on the internet. At its heart, Tails is a version of the Linux operating system optimized for anonymity. It comes with several privacy and encryption tools, most notably Tor, an application that anonymizes a user’s internet traffic by routing it through a network of computers run by volunteers around the world.

Snowden, Greenwald and their collaborator, documentary film maker Laura Poitras, used it because, by design, Tails doesn’t store any data locally. This makes it virtually immune to malicious software, and prevents someone from performing effective forensics on the computer after the fact. That protects both the journalists, and often more importantly, their sources.
