Cops being turned against the public, targeting Constitutionalists, and Liberty lovers.

A friend of mine that is a police officer locally brought it to my attention that they watched a training film. He did not know where the video came from, but it was pointed directly as those that hold the Constitution as the supreme law of the land. Here is the video that was shown to represent "all" Constitutionalists.

How we, the people lost JFK, MLK, and RFK and what we got in return.

On November 22, 1963 our entire country was assassinated when JFK was killed in a coup and overthrow of our Nation's highest office.

The people didn't want LBJ, we wanted JFK, but we got Johnson and WAR instead of Kennedy and PEACE and wasn't that just grand?

On April 4th, 1968 the soul of our country was assassinated when Martin Luther King was killed in Memphis by a "lone assassin", a two-bit bum, who then traversed the globe on the run. We, the people of ALL colors didn't want Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to be our spiritual guides, we wanted Martin Luther King but we got the charlatans, instead. These charlatans have become "rich" in the trappings of earthly treasures but sorely lack the richness of God.

On June 5th, 1968 our last, great hope, Bobby Kennedy was assassinated as he sat on the cusp of being elected by the people to be our next President.

Liberty is dead in Berrien County Michigan! Activist jailed without evidence!

Today is a depressing day in MI as a local activist Rev. Pinkney is imprisoned for up to 10 years with no evidence!

This is what happens when you try to make meaningful change. The local racket (judicial system) falsely imprisons you for taking part in the election process to remove a corrupt mayor.

Jeremy Howard: The wonderful and terrifying implications of computers that can learn

http://youtu.be/t4kyRyKyOpo
TED | Published on Dec 16, 2014

What happens when we teach a computer how to learn? Technologist Jeremy Howard shares some surprising new developments in the fast-moving field of deep learning, a technique that can give computers the ability to learn Chinese, or to recognize objects in photos, or to help think through a medical diagnosis. (One deep learning tool, after watching hours of YouTube, taught itself the concept of “cats.”) Get caught up on a field that will change the way the computers around you behave … sooner than you probably think.

The Russian Ruble is Hereby Halted until further notice.

Earlier, we reported that various currency brokers such as FXCM and FxPro, would - as a result of the soaring liquidity in the USDRUB pair - suspend trading in the Russian Ruble (while other merely hiked margins to ridiculous levels). It appears things have escalated again, and as FXCM just reported, instead of just politely advising clients not to open new USDRUB position tomorrow, it has advised anyone long, or short, the USDRUB that their positions will be forcibly shut in moments.

Michigan Republicans Spearhead Charge Towards Internet Sales Tax

Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville, a Monroe Republican, said he held a vote on the legislation because it was the “right thing” to do...

“This has been a freebie for people for a long time,” Richardville said. “It’s not a new tax. We’ve got laws that are on the books. People have been bypassing those laws and it’s time to pay the taxes that are due. Nobody likes taxes, but if they’re owed they’re owed.”

Do we finally have proof of life on Mars?

In the past few months, conclusive evidence has been found that Mars once had water on its surface, but one greater question remains: Was there, or is there still, life on Mars as well?

Scientists may be on the brink of answering that question with an equally conclusive 'yes', as convincing evidence has been detected by Nasa's Curiosity rover.

An instrument on the rover identified spikes of methane that scientists believe may have come from bacteria-like organisms on the surface - and it could be the first alien life ever detected....

Haruki Murakami: I will always stand on the side of egg

I came across this story about the Japanese writer Haruki Murakami in The Forbidden Worlds of Haruki Murakami.

Through and through, Murakami is an individualist. He follows his own internal compass, and in doing so helps to guide the way for others. This story is one illustration.

In 2009, he was awarded the Jerusalem prize for the Freedom of the Individual in Society by the Israeli Government. Pro-Palestinian groups urged him not to travel to Israel, and not to accept the prize.

"Please turn your attention to the Palestinians, who are being denied their freedom and dignity as human beings," the letter from the Palestine Forum Japan said. "We would humbly ask you to consider the effects your receipt of the Jerusalem prize would have, what sort of message the world would receive in this Middle East situation, what kind of propaganda value it could have to Israel and the possibility of aggravating the critical situation Palestinians are facing."

What would you have done, Daily Paul?
