The Democrat Party of South Carolina called for a press conference to undermine Rand Paul, and guess who the only Reporter to show up, none other than a reporter from anti-establishment /Liberty news outlet Breitbart.
How embarrassing for the Democrats.

A white police officer in North Charleston, S.C., was charged with murder on Tuesday after a video surfaced showing him shooting and killing an apparently unarmed black man in the back while he ran away.
In this WaPo piece there's no mention of Rand. Is it the beginning of a blackout or could they just not find anything solid to tar him with?
Back in 2007, one of the speakers who motivated me to fully dig in to the Liberty movement was Naomi Wolf, when I saw her lecture given October 11, 2007 at Kane Hall on the University of Washington campus, in regards to her book "The End of America: Letter of Warning To A Young Patriot". The lecture could've be retitled: Blueprint to a Closing Society and is frightening to recognize that all 10 points have already been fulfilled in America.
I've always wondered what Naomi's perspective would be today, especially after Obama has been in office. Well I found her updated perspective today while looking up something regarding Paris (#1 on blueprint - Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy) for RB and thought I'd also post for y'all her follow-up lecture to the New Hampshire Liberty Forum 2014. I did not see this video update in the DP search and apologize if we've already hammered this out.
The updated discussion is gripping (and not short) but I found great relief in seeing "how far we've come" and that we truly can build bridges and recognized again (if you have a heart-gut) "we're really not all that different".
So without further ado, I give you the updated version of "End of America", it seems weird to say but "I hope you enjoy it":
ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) — A white former police chief here was indicted on murder charges in the 2011 shooting death of an unarmed black man after an argument, a case that instantly drew comparisons to the Ferguson shooting and the chokehold death in New York.
The indictment of Richard Combs, the former chief and sole officer in the small town of Eutawville (YOO'-tah-vihl), was released Thursday. He faces 30 years to life in prison if convicted in the death of Bernard Bailey.

I live in S.C. near the savannah river site where there is a lot of nuclear waste stored. I know a lot of people who work there and I live upriver from it so I am not exactly worried about a nuclear waste leak but I was reading a story on how long it takes plutonium to go away http://finance.yahoo.com/news/future-plutonium-130000398.html and they said we cant launch the stuff into space because rockets fail and thats to expensive.

Rand Paul usually starts with a joke; it relieves the tension that’s never there. On Tuesday, Sept. 30, the junior Senator from Kentucky is running a little late, but a University of South Carolina lecture room is already overfull, stragglers fighting for space behind a row of TV cameras. A few college Democrats are in the room, but as listeners, not hecklers.
The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016.
In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said.
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — An unarmed man shot by a South Carolina trooper during a traffic stop repeated one question through his anguished cries as he lay wounded, waiting for an ambulance: “Why did you shoot me?”
In a video captured by a dashboard camera in the patrol car, then-Trooper Sean Groubert told Levar Jones it was because he “dove head first” back into his car. Jones said he was just reaching for his license as Groubert had instructed. Groubert’s lawyer says the officer justifiably feared for his life. I wouldn't necessarily say worse because this. Guy luckily survived.
S.C. Highway Patrol Trooper Sean Groubert opened fire during a stop for a seat belt violation. He was arrested Wednesday and faces up to 20 years in prison.

South Carolina Highway Patrol Trooper Sean Groubert opened fire on an unarmed man during a routine traffic stop earlier this month.
Groubert, 31, pulled over Levar Jones, 35, for a seat belt violation on Sept. 4.
A super good summary of 1991 to today starting with Gulf War 1, Operation Dessert Storm. Man how time flies and we just don't get it :(
