ISIS Is Blowback With a Vengeance

ISIS Is Blowback With a Vengeance
http://www.lewrockwell.com/lrc-blog/isis-is-blowback-with-a-...

When innocent people are being killed, wounded and driven from their homes as refugees and nowhere to go, it is very painful to have to say “We told you so”. … ISIS is blowback with a vengeance. The libertarian non-intervention and anti-war position has been totally correct for a very long time. The war and intervention position of the U.S. government has been totally wrong for a very long time. …

Another push to convince you that "Global Warming" is man induced...

The global-warming community has been suffering from numerous black eyes lately so now they are going to further distort the data so they can "prove" that some current event is caused by man's influence. They are going to "estimate" sea temperatures so they can push their "conclusions" before the have the actual data. We've seen how poorly they represent "actual data" and now we are supposed to accept their "highly accurate" estimates?? What a joke these guys have become...

"by using highly accurate estimates of sea surface temperatures rather than waiting for the actual readings"

Russia Set To BAN Bitcoin

This is harsh.

Here is the draft language of the Russian Ban on Bitcoin:

"administrative fines to be imposed on both businesses and private citizens who issue, create or deliberately disseminate information about the release or operation of digital currencies"

Just writing about crypto currencies it seems will land you with a hefty fine

Ann Coulter: Republican GOPfather (with commissioned Ben Garrison art!)

Instead of worrying about how Libertarians are going to vote, maybe Ann Coulter’s time would be better spent exposing the phony 501(c)(3) corporation known as the Presidential Debate Commission, the same Presidential Debate Commission (PDC) that is now being sued by Gary Johnson and his Our America Initiative organization:

Gold, Silver or Bitcoin - Which is the Best Store of Value?

In 2014 Gold Has Been The Best Store Of Value

This year and for hundreds/thousands of years, Gold has been the most consistent store of value.

Bitcoin's 50-60% price drop this year disqualifies it to even be considered as a store of value.

Silver? not so much this year.

These charts show the stability of gold compared to Bitcoin and silver.

Ron Paul Warns of Ebola ‘Overreaction’

By Jesse Byrnes - 10/02/14
The Hill

Former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) warned that it was “very dangerous” for the U.S. to overreact to Ebola and urged “common sense” to contain the deadly virus.

"I know there's a lot of reason to be concerned. It is a serious problem, but in my lifetime, when we have been frightened by this so-called coming epidemic — most of it has never materialized," the veteran lawmaker and former physician said in an interview with conservative Newsmax TV Wednesday.

Why Did the FBI Make Animal Cruelty a Top Tier Felony?

Animal cruelty is a topic that understandably evokes an emotional response. A person that chooses to consistently release their aggression by harming a defenseless pet is the lowest scum in society. Hopefully, there is a special place in hell reserved for despicable individuals that harm dogs, cats, and other domesticated animals.

UK Health Overlords Want Pill Prescribed To Anyone Drinking More Than ONE Alcoholic Bev Nightly

Ah yes, nationalized healthcare run amok. The UK’s National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence is pushing through their demands that British doctors interrogate their patients during any visit and ask them how many alcoholic bevvies they drink in a night. Anyone who says they have more than a single drink will be prescribed a nalmefene pill that (it’s claimed) will stop you from wanting a second. Insanity. But let’s hear more, shall we? The Telegraph fills us in:

Police Ticket Quotas In The news

It should come as not surprise that the Police Department bases many of their practices as potential fundraising activities. It's just slightly amusing to see it actually reported on.
