In the wake of recent mysterious plane crash deaths of freedom-leaning political figures, perhaps it's time to revisit 2008, when a plane carrying Dr. Ron Paul and six other congressmen depressurized and had to make an emergency landing in New Orleans en route from D.C. to Houston:
Is there any way to find out what happened with the investigation into this? All I know is that I never heard anything more about it. The Washington Post article on it is gone. Click through:

“It’s been over five months since the night a SWAT team broke into the house in which we were staying…We were staying with relatives and my whole family was sleeping in one room. My husband and I, our three daughters and our baby (nicknamed “Baby Bou Bou”) in his crib. Dressed like soldiers, they broke down the door. The SWAT officers tossed a flashbang grenade into the room. It landed in Baby Bou Bou’s crib, blowing a hole in his face and chest that took months to heal and covering his entire body with scars…
“Doctors tell us that my son will have to have double reconstructive surgeries twice a year, every year for the next 20 years… [I]n five short months our family has taken on nearly $900,000 in medical bills, some of which have now gone into collections… After initially offering to cover the medical expenses, the county has since refused to cover any of our medical costs, all of which would never have happened if the SWAT team hadn’t broken into the home.”—Alecia Phonesavanh
Who pays the price for the police shootings that leave unarmed citizens dead or injured, for the SWAT team raids that leave doors splintered, homes trashed, pets murdered, and family members traumatized and injured, if not dead?

The Obama administration has quietly approved a substantial expansion of the terrorist watchlist system, authorizing a secret process that requires neither “concrete facts” nor “irrefutable evidence” to designate an American or foreigner as a terrorist, according to a key government document obtained by The Intercept.
The “March 2013 Watchlisting Guidance,” a 166-page document issued last year by the National Counterterrorism Center, spells out the government’s secret rules for putting individuals on its main terrorist database, as well as the no fly list and the selectee list, which triggers enhanced screening at airports and border crossings. The new guidelines allow individuals to be designated as representatives of terror organizations without any evidence they are actually connected to such organizations, and it gives a single White House official the unilateral authority to place entire “categories” of people the government is tracking onto the no fly and selectee lists. It broadens the authority of government officials to “nominate” people to the watchlists based on what is vaguely described as “fragmentary information.” It also allows for dead people to be watchlisted.

Former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) thinks if former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton runs for president in 2016, "she’d be pretty average" as commander-in-chief.
During an interview Thursday on Ora.Tv’s PoliticKING with Larry King, Paul wasn’t at all enthused about the possibility of another Clinton campaign.
"Oh sure, the media will love her, but she’ll get beat up too," Paul said.
I'm not sure what to say. Just thought this was interesting.
"As of Friday morning (Oct. 17), after just two days of donations, the Wyllie for Governor Campaign Money Bomb has already raised $8,000 of its $30,000 goal. However, with time running out, the campaign needs the contributions quickly. Here is how Campaign Manager Danielle Alexandre broke down what is needed for the money bomb, and how the money will be spent towards buying advertising:
We can run 180 commercials per week for the rest of the election for $30,000!"
Welcome to the new Ebola panic. It began in the last week and it is rooted in the idea that people have become too hysterical about the spread of Ebola. I’m calling it the anti-hysteria hysteria.
The possibility of Ebola (whether real or manufactured) being used as a "false flag" op by the goons is real. "They" want more control and less resistance from the sheeple and what better way than to scare them into compliance by using a horrific disease (the invisible enemy)...
In the Importance of Gold to Nations and Individuals we noted that Russia takes very favorable view of gold.
Russia continued its voracious gold buying in September adding 1.2 million ounces of gold to its reserves.
During President Barack Obama’s speech at a Maryland Democratic campaign rally Sunday, crowd members departed while he spoke — an action that “underscored his continuing unpopularity,”...
Sleeping 7-Year-Old Girl Shot in Head During No-Knock Police Raid on Wrong Home
On the evening of May 16, 2010, the Detroit Police Department’s Special Response Team (SRT) prepared for a surprise raid to arrest a wanted man. A surveillance unit had been monitoring the duplex in which he lived throughout the day and a no-knock raid was scheduled for just after midnight.

Here it is. Even a third-world country can kick Ebola's backside. Too bad here in the "greatest" country in the world we are shaking in our boots because we are afraid of the big bad "Ebola" spirits...
The Verge: Facebook has a message for the DEA: if you want to use our service, you have to use your real name. In a letter sent to the Drug Enforcement Administration on Friday, chief security office Joe Sullivan chided the agency for allowing one of its officers to lure criminals with a fake Facebook account created in a suspect's name. "We regard the DEA's conduct to be a knowing and serious breach of Facebook's terms and policies," writes Sullivan. He adds that the social network "asks that the DEA immediately confirm that it has ceased all activities on Facebook that involve the impersonation of others or that otherwise violate our terms and policies."
The issue came to the fore earlier this month when BuzzFeed reported on a case filed in a federal district court. The suspect, 28-year-old Sondra Arquiett, sued DEA agent Timothy Sinnigen for violating her privacy and putting her in harm's way. In court filings, the DEA admitted that Sinnigen used photos obtained from Arquiett's cell phone to create a phony Facebook account.
