Gene Kelly has been the Clark County Sheriff since forever and has a lot of respect locally. It's common to say, "I vote a straight Republican ticket, except for Gene Kelly, of course."
That's why I was surprised the county was participating in this "no refusal" checkpoint. Well, it turns out Gene Kelly is having nothing to do with it anymore.
I have actually had one idiot tell me he would just come shoot my cow if SHTF, after I pointed out that there will be no deer or elk in the wilderness after about three days of everyone "heading for the hills."
The cow thus threatened is my milk cow, when she was a calf. She would have been less than 100 pounds of meat. I plan to keep her as a breed cow and milk her for my own food, and to have enough to share if people come to me hungry.
We have all heard about our police departments stockpiling military surplus. Simply go to this link to see what yours has acquired. Anything interesting in your county? Sound off in the comments section.
Remember, those things listed are at a HUGE discount price. Those $499 5.56 rifles are most likely auto M4's, and those $79000 "utility vehicles" are most likely armored vehicles.
Pharr, TX — Trial is set to begin December 1, in the case of former Pharr police officer Erasmo Mata, Jr., accused of repeated first-degree felony sexual assaults of a child.
A federal civil lawsuit filed with Texas Southern District Court back in May accused Mata of assaulting the minor five times, on five separate occasions, all while on duty. The suit alleges that the attacks took place in abandoned houses around the city as other Pharr police officers stood by and watched.

...some observers believe that Saudi Arabia is pushing down oil prices to hurt Russia and other petro-states unfriendly to the U.S.
However, that seems unlikely...
...It takes a lot more money to produce oil from shale than it does traditional wells.
The cost of drilling shale and deepwater formations ranges from $85 to $115 for each barrel of oil produced, compared to $20 to $30 per barrel for traditional oil wells in Saudi Arabia.
The Tuscaloosa shale in Louisiana breaks even at about $92 per barrel, for example.
Over the past few years Peter Schiff has consistently predicted that gold was headed higher, and has consistently been proved wrong. On Thursday, he vigorously defended his calls in a heated debate with trader Scott Nations, who calls his confidence "dangerous."
Several months ago, a Russian rocket, carrying Russia's most advanced communications satellite, exploded on launch and the west was amused at Russia's seeming incompetence, while birthing extensive speculation of the NSA's involvement. Well, moments ago either Karma, or Russian hackers, intervened, and 6 seconds after launch, the NASA unmanned Antares rocket of rocket-maker Orbital Sciences, likewise ended its mission prematurely in a massive flaming fireball.
A video of the explosion:
Kaci Hickox has gotten a lot of mileage out of her emotion-packed description of her ordeal with screening and monitoring of individuals entering or returning to this country from Ebola stricken West Africa, her criticism of forced quarantine and the claim of civil rights violations. But, it might be more mileage than she originally intended. In her article for The Dallas News, Hickox claimed that she worked with Doctors Without Borders caring for Ebola stricken individuals in West Africa.
I love what Gav has been up to... Here he discusses the 2nd Amendment and how we should NOT comply if legislation is to be passed.
Since I was a boy I've loved planes and especially our mighty Air Force. Airshows, parades, museums, air force bases, movies and so on were many examples of America's might. Never again! It is all a charade and I was duped into believing this is what makes our country great. It's all a lie and our government and military has done nothing but invade, pillage, murder, destroy, enslave, and terrorize innocent people who have done nothing to us.
I am ashamed of our military and will do everything possible to keep my kids and grandkids from joining.
Friends in Liberty!
Do not post on the Daily Paul while drunk.
I say this from my heart.
From my own experience.
Stay away from this site while intoxicated with alcohol.
This way you will not be loosing friends here.
You will not be afraid to see what you posted here.
The last few days I'm on a drinking binge.
Truth must be told.
I just had a bottle of Jagermeister.
So this is the only posting on this day for me.
Stay away from anything that makes your mind blurry while posting here on the Daily Paul.
This site deserves people who are totally sober.

It is apparent now more than ever that our government has grown out of control—and under Democratic leadership, it will only continue to infringe upon our civil liberties. Currently, this Democratic leadership is telling you how to run your businesses, telling you which doctor to see, telling you what you can and cannot eat, and monitoring your phone calls and data without a warrant.

A few months ago, we wrote about the strange saga of self-described "anarcho-capitalist" Stefan Molyneux more or less admitting that he and a colleague named Michael DeMarco had filed questionable DMCA notices in response to some critical YouTube videos. DeMarco and Molyneux defended the use of the DMCA by arguing that the videos involved doxxing some Molyneux supporters. While that may have been true of some, it did not appear to be the case with one account, from so-called "Tru Shibes," whose videos were pretty focused on criticizing Molyneux himself. Either way, we found it especially bizarre that someone so against "state violence" of any kind (and who had spoken out against intellectual property entirely) would then resort to abusing government-run copyright law to silence criticism. Even worse, Molyneux flat out admitted (on a Joe Rogan podcast) that he wasn't using the DMCA for any copyright-related purpose. In that post, I noted that it seemed unlikely to lead to a lawsuit, but Molyneux had probably opened himself up to a DMCA 512(f) claim for "materially misrepresenting" a copyright claim.
