I want to tell you a story about what silver is worth.

When I went home to the place of my people as I had done for my father's father and now for my father, the closest I could get was JFK in NYC and it had been so many years that JFK had transformed into Little Havana, everybody was brown, everybody was talking the fastest Spanish, they lost my bags and for a moment I was just another irate gringo.

Facebook Asking For My License.

I work for a music company that has over 13 thousand likes. My music is more focused on activism, so I get reported a lot. I posted about how vaccines are bad for you & how the NFL is corrupt. The next day, they banned my account & said I needed a Government ID.

We Need More of Moore

The Ninth Amendment to the Constitution states that, “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”

This past Sunday Chris Wallace interviewed Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore.  Chief Justice Moore is once again in the news for standing up for the rule of law, limited government, and the viability of the Constitution as a meaningful document as opposed to a Living Document that means whatever the nine black robed oligarchs say it means.

This happened once before.  Back in 2000 he was elected to the position as Alabama’s top jurist on the promise that he would restore the moral foundations of the law in Alabama.  Several months later he made good on that promise when he set a Ten Commandments monument in the rotunda of the Alabama Judicial Building.  He was promptly sued in federal district court by the Southern Poverty Law Center, the American Civil Liberties Union and Americans United for the Separation of Church and State who complained that the Chief Justice’s actions were an unconstitutional “establishment of religion.”

A Libertarian Manifesto for 2016

A Libertarian Manifesto for 2016

Political parties and politicians like to talk in generalities and avoid anything specific that might actually enhance our rights and liberties. Politicians typically say things like “Let’s tackle our debt, fix the tax code, reform the legal system, give parent more choices to better educate their kids, defend the Constitution, etc.” Apparently these sound bites are enough to rally support for the two main parties. Nothing of substantive needs to be done, just offer vague promises or affirmations of faith in conservative/liberal causes.

Escaping Debaltseve Ukraine. The Argument for Gold over Silver.

For all the news junkies out there, you know what happened in Debaltseve Ukraine more or less. It was surrounded by separatists and laid siege to. Thousands of Western-backed Ukrainians (fascists) held for awhile before retreating.

Imagine for a moment that Debaltseve is your home. The population according to wikipedia was 25,000 or so people. If you stay then your supplies will be pillaged and stolen by the defenders. You have artillery blowing up your neighborhood. Your family is likely in danger of being raped/killed by either the incoming or defending forces.

FED's Charter Expired

If the Federal Reserve was granted a 100-year charter on December 23, 1913; then under what authority are they currently operating? I don't recall hearing about a reauthorization vote in the Congress. I recently attended a Ron Paul speech at the University of South Florida, prepared to ask that question, but they only allowed student questions.

Investigation Into Ron Paul’s 2012 Campaign “Expanding”


This whole thing is just sad to me, and underscores my sentiment that there is no solving our problems through utterly corrupt elections.

These are the things that bother me the most:

"The campaign has spent more than $364,000 on legal fees since last August."

I am unaware of one dime being spent on legal fees attempting to remedy the clear fraud that was perpetrated in both 2008 and again in 2012. I am left to wonder, if he had grown fangs and claws and come out fighting after 2008, would they have pulled this stunt? Understand that at this point, I suspect Sorenson was sent in to do exactly this. Pretty sweet deal he managed to cut. Do you suppose Benton was ever offered a deal to squeal on Sorenson? I doubt it.

This also bothers me:

"Benton was involved in email exchanges among Ron Paul staffers regarding the possibility of paying Sorenson to endorse the campaign. Benton resigned from McConnell’s campaign after news of Sorenson’s plea broke.

In December, Rand Paul said he would “welcome” having Benton work for his 2016 campaign. Doug Stafford, Paul’s top political aide, declined to comment on Sorenson’s case."

My biggest complaint with Dr. Paul the senior is his apparent blind spot where family is concerned. This is beginning to look like a genetic trait.

Someone Please Help Me Keep My Friend And His Family Out Of Prison For A Non Crime!

My friend Rolland Gregg and his family thought they were obeying the law out here in Washington State, all have medical marijuana cards and they even painted a green cross on their roof. Their crime? They were growing medical marijuana in a state where it's legal for medical marijuana card holders to grow their own marijuana, and it has been legal for over a decade - we even have legal recreational marijuana out here, and all of this makes no sense...

If anyone reading this can do anything to help, I'm at a loss, I've called our Governors office, my Congressman and my Senators, and I'm getting the run around. Their trial starts Monday, and they are all facing mandatory minimums of 10 years.

The DEA is the outfit pushing this, and my congress critter told me he cant get involved due to separation of powers, so who the heck can help?

Operation Chokepoint Update, FCC's Internet Takeover, and Our Exit Strategy

There is a more concentrated effort by the Administration to shut down dealers of precious metals and firearms now. Operation Chokepoint is all about going after dealers via financial institutions. Here is an update by Mike Maloney since his first video about it.


Also, on a related note the FCC has a 322 page document on how the feds plan on regulating the internet. We aren't allowed to know what is in it until the FCC votes on it. It doesn't sound like Congress has a say.
