In the latest state-led move to curb National Security Agency spying, the Utah legislature advanced a bill this week to turn off the water to NSA’s massive data gathering facility in Bluffdale, which uses more than $30,000 taxpayer dollars-worth of water every month.

We ran Civil Asset Forfeiture out of Utah

Don't ever let any apathetic liberty lover tell you that fighting the system is pointless. Here is Utah I worked with the Libertas Institute to completely drive asset forfeiture out of my state. It is the ONLY state that completely restricts this practice. Looking for somewhere free? We also can use gold as money here.


The rest of the article is here. Never give up the fight! Peace.

Not Everything is a Conspiracy

History proves that conspiracies are real, common, and are often dismissed by the public as nonsense. My favorite example for the harshest critics of my worldview is the munitions found aboard the Lusitania.

History has also shown that not everything is a conspiracy. I like to keep an open mind on a lot of theories but many of them are just that. Theories. Some of them are borderline rational while others seem quite far-fetched. There are people that don't think the moon landing happened. Sometimes bad things just happen on accident. For example, let's look at the Ebola outbreak.

A True OathKeeper's PoliceState Catharsis: Fmr Sheriff Dub Lawrence witnesses his Son-in-Law MURDERed by SWAT founded BY Him!

For strict constructionist Constitutionalist minarchists, here's THE model, of a true OathKeeper: former Davis County, Utah Sheriff William 'Dub' Lawrence (also USMC combat vet), who was a practicing oath keeper before Stewart Rhodes ever founded the OathKeepers.

Please watch the entire speech, as Lawrence recounts how the SWAT, PD, the City/lawyers, the MSM ALL lied about, and covered it up as a "suicide" via "self-inflicted GSW to the chest," when in truth, Dub eye-WITNESSED his UNARMED son-in-law Brian Wood, laying flat on the ground after pepperballed 32 times, flashbanged, and tasered over 8 times, only to be shot EXECUTED by the SWAT sniper's .308win at 38ft (NOT yards!), which went through Wood's cheek, through his throat and exited through his back:

Dub Lawrence October 4, 2014 / Scott Matheson Courthouse [Supreme Court of Utah]

Published on Oct 4, 2014

Dub Lawrence has released a documentary called PEACE OFFICER. We highly recommend that you watch it as soon as it's convenient.

There is something warm and credible about this gentle giant of a man. He speaks with soft authority. He conveys the facts with proper respect for the truth. He is the epitome of the uncorrupted police officer.

Ebola, cautious but not fearful.

Concerning the developing Ebola outbreaks, I am cautious but not fearful.

Here's my question:
I generally think of the US as a tax farm. How does it benefit our ruling class to have thousands of healthy income producers succumb to Ebola?

Here's my take:
At this point I think Ebola is a natural disaster. Like most natural disasters, eventually the government will start throwing money at the problem to recover from poor decisions made from the onslaught. A few people will get very rich.

In the meantime, I'll learn more and take precautions.

How I finally Managed to Ditch Fiat Currency Without Embracing Bitcoin.

There is so much that I want to say and it is important. This is the path that I have taken off the Federal Reserve counterfeit dollars and back to real money. The gold dollars. We don't need to use the Federal Reserve Notes anymore. Be patient with my writing and I will walk you through it.

Utah cops Changes Story In Police Killing Of Black Man; witness claim man shot in back

A law enforcement official in Utah appears to have changed his story about the fatal police shooting of a black man on Wednesday in Saratoga Springs, Utah.

Darrien Hunt, 22, was killed by police last week in a confrontation that authorities said involved a sword outside a Panda Express restaurant. A lawyer for the man's family later said an autopsy showed Hunt had been shot from behind and was running away when he was killed.

Why isn't the media covering the killing of an unarmed white youth by a black police officer?

On the surface, the cases appear nearly identical: Michael Brown and Dillon Taylor, two young, unarmed men with sketchy criminal pasts shot to death by police officers two days apart.

But while the world knows of the highly publicized situation involving 18-year-old Mr. Brown, whose Aug. 9 death in Ferguson, Missouri touched off violence, protests and an angry national debate, most people outside Utah have never heard of 20-year-old Mr. Taylor.

MSM Paints Obama as a Dove by Lying About Syria.

Remember when Obama wanted to do a "limited surgical strike" on Syria's Assad and the people rose up in protest? That was one of the only times that I ever called my congressman about an issue and his secretary was saying that he had received hundreds of call like mine. It was amazing to see Americans rise up and say no to the Syrian War.

Backyard Bees, Chickens, and Fruit Trees. How to start Urban Farming.

People were asking me about it so here it is. About two and a half years ago I bought my first house. I was twenty one and I hadn't the slightest idea of what to do with the 0.2 acres it was on. Over the course of the next two years I figured out how to turn the 1600sqft of land that wasn't covered by concrete into a productive yet very low maintenance farm.

What kind of personality types do we have on the DP? Take the test!

The 16 main personality types has probably been the most fun thing that my wife and I have studied together this year. I feel like sharing because all of my friends that care the most (or at least actively talk about it) share a letter.

Essentially the way it works is you are either an (I) introvert or an (E) extrovert, a(N) intuitive thinker or a (S) observant thinker, a (T) thinking type or a (F) feeling type, and you are either a more (J) judging type or a (P) prospecting type.

Platinum & Palladium vs. Silver and Gold?

Hey guys,

So I watched the "The Hidden Secrets of Money" on youtube series and read at least a hundred articles and a book or two on how silver and gold are real money. I even went out and invested a large portions of my savings in precious metals.
Yesterday I went out and bought myself my first ounce of Platinum. The store I usually go to was sold out. I was able to find just one eagle ounce out of the four places that I called in the Salt Lake area.

Chasing the Ark with my little row boat

Hey DP,

I'm one of the new people from that one day that the "Ark door" was opened and we were allowed to subscribe again. Believe it or not I have been following the site since at least 2011 during the run up to the 2012 republican primaries. The DP came up when I was searching for more information on Ron Paul and I've been coming back ever since.

Now I feel like I should explain myself a bit. It wasn't really my style to pay a subscription fee to chat it up with a bunch of people that were probably way smarter than me in the comments and to vote on posts. I may have tried to sign up once but registration was only open on Wednesdays and by the time I was serious about doing it the "Ark" door was closed.

When it was finally opened back at the end of July I was excited to finally contribute my part (intellectually and financially). That is when I learned that subscribing could be free anyway. The irony right? I could have been pestering you people for years! Anyway, I decided to go ahead and contribute some money anyway (maybe I'll make a post about contributing to causes you believe in later...?) and sure enough the paypal link was broken so I couldn't become a new member after all.

This may have happened to many of the 100 or so people that tried to make an account and couldn't. I just called the number from the email in paypal and got it figured out that way. Michael is pretty great for doing that. He said that I wasn't the only one with this problem so if you didn't make it in and you have that contact info then I'd go for it. I'm so excited to be here!! Thank you for having me!
