Rand Paul snuck off to Guatemala to restore poor people’s sight

http://rare.us/story/rand-paul-snuck-off-to-guatemala-to-res...

It’s tempting to think that Paul’s Guatemala trip was for political expedience, but history shows otherwise.

Eighteen years ago the then-full-time ophthalmologist performed eye surgery pro-bono for two Guatemalan brothers, Juan and Andres Hernandez. The nonprofit group Children of the Americas brought the brothers, along with other children from Guatemala, to Kentucky so they could receive the vision-restoring surgery.

Warmonger Extraordinaire Dick Cheney Says If We Don't Go To War With IS It'll Be Like Foley Video Multiplied "By A Million."

While a Politico is not generally a good place to get non-partisan info, there is the occasional gem. Like this article, in which Dick Cheney criticizes Obama's foreign policy towards the ISIS/ISIL/IS and recommends we engage in military action against ISIS/ISIL/IS.

Articles like these are important, because they serve to reveal potential motive, and help to support alternative viewpoints in regards to the truth about what is happening in the world. There have already been several sources that have claimed ISIS is a creation of the CIA, designed to take down anti-Western dictatorships, all the while remaining under the thumb of their American masters, so that after a dictatorship is overthrown, we take rebels by surprise, then turn on them, destroy them, and take over the area for ourselves.

The addition of Dick Cheney's wholehearted endorsement of war, as well as his use of fear generated from the Foley video, really serves to emphasize the point that IS is a creation of the American government, in the latest effort to secure the region for themselves.

Texas Governor Rick Perry Losing Right to Concealed Carry and Buy Ammo

This past weekend Texas Governor Rick Perry – our old friend from our days of live tweeting every GOP debate in 2012 – was indicted on charges that he abused his official capacity as governor and of coercion of a public servant. I don’t intend to dwell on the charges themselves. Rick Perry may be corrupt, but it’s hard to imagine he’s much more corrupt than your average “public servant”, and considering the overall coercive nature of our present governmental system, it seems odd to focus on the specific actions of one governor.

Deadspin is Crowdsourcing a Police Shooting Database

Anthony L. Fisher | Aug. 20, 2014
Reason.com

As noted here on Hit & Run last week and on FiveThirtyEight.com yesterday, there is no comprehensive national database of shootings by police. Though academics like David Klinger and Jim Fisher have been on the case for years, there hasn't been a coordinated effort to compile all the necessary data into one place, until now. ||| Ben Re / FoterBen Re / Foter

As part of its coverage of the unrest in Ferguson, MO, following the police shooting death of unarmed teenager, Michael Brown, Deadspin, the hugely popular Gawker Media-affiliated sports and pop culture website, is asking its readers to help crowdsource information on police shootings from 2011-2013.

For a few hours today, they were allowing their readers to update a Google doc spreadsheet, which proved unwieldly due to a limit on the number of concurrent users accessing the doc. They have since moved to soliciting info via a submission form on the site.

Justin Raimondo on Ferguson: Ten Days That Shook the Country

How the tactics of occupation came home

August 20, 2014 | Antiwar.com

The facts surrounding the murder of Michael Brown, an 18-year-old resident of Ferguson, Missouri, gunned down by Darren Wilson, a Ferguson police officer, are not entirely known – but enough is known that it’s quite justified to characterize it as cold-blooded murder. Thanks to Brown’s family, an autopsy has revealed that of the six shots fired by Wilson, five were survivable, but the sixth – which entered through the top of his head – was not. Although the evidence is not yet conclusive, the forensics – and the testimony of eyewitnesses – point to the fatal shot being fired as he was falling to the ground with his hands up in the classic posture of surrender.

Yet regardless of the circumstances surrounding his death, the significance of this event lies in the reaction to it – from the people of Ferguson, and, most importantly, from local, state, and federal authorities. From the former – anger: from the latter – repression.

Another Emergency Supplemental Appropriations

So here is the latest on spending. We can usually expect this type of supplemental appropriations through out the year. But this one is different. This bill started it's life as the "National Nuclear Security Administration for fiscal year 2014" and was voted on by the House in October of 2013.

This is another bill that the entire language was struck out and replaced by something different by the Senate, then sent back to the House where they voted on it again.

Ron Paul on abortions

Ron Paul believes that the ninth and tenth amendments to the U.S. Constitution do not grant the federal government any authority to legalize or ban abortion. Instead, it is up to the individual states to prohibit abortion: http://www.ronpaul.com/on-the-issues/abortion/

Militarized Police Execute American Nationals Indiscriminately

These are just a few among the thousands of American nationals executed as a part of the communist reign of terror. It has nothing to do with race, but rather nationality. They must kill every one of us before they can dispossess us completely of our country.

What Military Gear Do Your Local Cops Have?

Below is a link from the military’s “Defense Logistics Agency”. It is a database used to log the equipment that is given to town municipalities across the country. It displays stuff like 107 mm Mortar Launcher to NYC, Night Vision to this town or AR’s to that town, etc., etc. Just fill in your state and then county, hit search and see where your tax dollars are being spent (wasted).
