The Last Hour
Dark Journalist will be joining the reddit conspiracy community for an AMA (ask me anything) question and answer session on April 16th at 4pm EST. He is happy to answer any questions that viewers may have on subjects such as the Black Budget Economy, The Breakaway Civilization, Deep State, Secret Space Program and UFO Secrecy.
I'm very proud to have written the most-upvoted review of Larken Rose's great book, The Most Dangerous Superstition. Somehow or other, I never got around to posting the review on the Daily Paul. So here it is, my last words on my late-great favorite website:
Little children learn morality from their parents: things are good or bad because Mommy and Daddy SAID so. A little later, they may be taught that things are good or bad because God SAID so, in some Holy Book. And still later, when they are taught "civics" in government schools, they will be taught that things are good or bad because "It's the law." (And it's GOOD to obey the law, BAD to break it.") But "the law" is just whatever politicians SAY it is.
A person becomes an adult when he outgrows the need to be given moral commandments from people he thinks of as "authorities," and learns to judge for himself what is right or wrong. This is a book to read to discover just how adult YOU really are. The book as a whole is a litmus test that will show whether the reader is an adult with independent judgment, or still a child, believing every fantasy and superstition that the "authorities" in his life have told him to believe.
“Stop the Wars on Drugs and Terrorism” will feature an all-star lineup of three dynamic speakers: Ron Paul, Glenn Greenwald, and Radley Balko.
The Future of Freedom Foundation and Young Americans for Liberty present a one-day conference on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin at the LBJ Auditorium in the Lyndon B. Johnson Library on Saturday, April 11, 2015, that will address the war on drugs and the war on terrorism.
The party is just getting started. And this old ark seems to be springing lots of leaks today.
She was a good vessel, and we'll always love her, but the new ship is really streamlined and comfy! I think we're gonna have some fun at Popular Liberty.

What the Media Hasn’t Told You About Rand Paul’s Announcement
I'm a late bloomer to defining liberty. I was always a true core libertarian, I never knew how to define it....until Ron Paul.
I'd completely missed the 2008 election due to private issues, never even heard of Ron Paul.
In late 2011, I watched the first 3 GOP Primary debates and discovered Ron Paul. His message resonated with me on a scale I'd never experienced before. A day later, I found the Daily Paul.
...and he really did cure my apathy in politics.
I did not vote in a presidential election for 32 years until Congressman Paul ran in 2008.
In addition to curing my apathy, Dr. Paul's candidacy put me on a road to learning which no average university political science or college program could have taught me.
I'm sad to see this site go away and I fear that many who are here will be lost even though a new site is scheduled to replace the DailyPaul.
On this sad day, I am reflecting on many moments that I have experienced in my time with the DailyPaul. As I have previously commented/posted, the DailyPaul was instrumental in my evolution as a political (or rather anti-political) being. The times I shared here from 2007 onwards (though I joined much later) changed my life forever.
Well, I'd first like to thank "Michael and the Mods" for a great ride, (I still say that'd make a great band name btw.) I'd also like to thank people who post here. I appreciate you sharing these ideas with me over the last almost 8 years now.
Going to the Daily Paul every day, numerous times per day, has been a major part of my life. This is going to affect me. I'll go to the new site I'm sure, and it won't be the same.
Stephen Sweeney ran for state Senate in New Jersey in 2002. At that time, he had an “A” rating from the NRA, and curried favor with gun groups such as the New Jersey 2nd Amendment Society (NJ2AS). Sweeney met with their leadership, shook their hands, and promised that he would never do anything to infringe upon the gun rights of New Jersey citizens. The NJ2AS got behind Sweeney, and pushed their base to help get him elected by a very slim margin of around 5,400 votes.
Now, thirteen years later, the NJ2AS is leading the campaign to have Stephen Sweeney recalled and removed from office.
After searching for the outcome of Doreen Hendrickson's sentencing hearing yesterday in Detroit, I finally found a press release from the DOJ announcing she was sentenced to 18 months in prison to be followed by a year of supervised release.
Her "crime"? Refusing to obey a judge's wholly unlawful order to swear to something she did not believe to be true in connection with the government's ongoing effort to suppress the truth contained in the book authored by her husband, "Cracking the Code: The Fascinating Truth About Taxation In America".
Former felons won an important battle this past week against Apple. On Thursday Apple reversed course on a policy that discriminated against construction laborers who had been charged or convicted of a felony within the last seven years. DPR, the construction company overseeing the massive construction of Apple’s campus in Cupertino, California had several workers removed from the job site because being a charged or convicted felon did not “meet the owner’s standard.”
