Brent Stafford Trial Begins

This is infuriating to read if you know the truth and have seen the videos, but Brent deserves to have us all pulling for him.

St. Peters trial begins for Paul activist accused of trespassing

ST. PETERS • A local leader in Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul's campaign was arrested because he tried to "reorganize and reopen" the unruly St. Charles County GOP caucus March 17 after it disbanded, a St. Peters police officer testified Tuesday.

"He was attempting to keep the people from leaving," Sgt. Tim Hickey said on the opening day of the trial of Brent Stafford, 45, of O'Fallon, Mo., who faces a trespassing charge in municipal court. The trial resumes next Tuesday night.

Stafford maintains he did nothing wrong. He has said he left the caucus site, the Francis Howell North High School gym, with other participants as ordered by police and then exercised his free-speech rights on the sidewalk outside by trying to reconvene.

The police order didn't apply there, argued Stafford's attorney, David Roland. City officials contend that it did.

Ron Paul Campaign Prepares to Challenge the Entire Slate of Louisiana's 46 Delegates

(CNN) – The Ron Paul 2012 campaign is preparing to challenge the entire slate of Louisiana's 46 delegates selected to attend the Republican National Convention next month in Tampa, Florida.

See: http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2012/07/27/ron-paul-cam...

The timing of this is great. With so many now thinking that Romney is a tax cheat, chances are Romney may exit the race. Having Dr. Paul clearly still working to win gives the GOP a runner up who will step in to take the White House for them. Oorah!

CBS Politic365: Experts Say Ron Paul is Right: Drug War “Very Biased Against Minorities”

Experts Say Ron Paul is Right: Drug War “Very Biased Against Minorities”

While the focus of this week on Capitol Hill for Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) has been his “Audit the Fed” bill, the Texas Republican spent a little time discussing something other than monetary policy: the government and its impact on race relations.

Louisiana Paulers Left out to dry by the state party.

I have it on good authority from someone in Louisiana that the LAGOP has just submitted its list of delegates to the Tampa convention to the RNC. Conspicuously missing are any Ron Paul supporters. This is the same state where Paul supporters controlled over 61% of the delegates at the state convention who voted to send 27 Paul supporters out of the 46 total for Louisiana.

It is stunts like this that have totally alienated the influx of young, committed and knowledgeable individuals into the party. These people are told by the establishment (after getting cheated in 2008) to get involved...flex your political muscles...call out with the voice of freedom and liberty and when they do and beat the socks off of the establishment, the establishment just turns around and pretends they don't exist.

How can they expect Paul supporters who have been so treated to stay involved and support their continued efforts let alone support their presupposed candidate? The Republican party faces a battle against demographics and if they don't do something to encourage the above-mentioned people, it is doomed to obsolescence and ultimately death.

Can you see the steam coming out of my ears? Louisiana certified all (but 1) Romney delegates

"WASHINGTON - On the eve of Saturday's deadline, the Louisiana Republican Party Friday afternoon certified with the Republican National Committee its slate of delegates to the party's national convention in Tampa, filling slots that backers of Ron Paul won in the caucuses with supporters of Mitt Romney."

As you scan the face on that giant billboard, it may just be scanning your face right back.

Increasingly sophisticated digital facial-recognition technology is opening new possibilities in business, marketing, advertising and law enforcement while exacerbating fears about the loss of privacy and the violation of civil liberties.

Dem Turncoats Protect the 1%: 8 Co-sponsors of ‘Audit the Fed’ Vote Against It

The House of Representatives approved Texas Republican Rep. Ron Paul’s “Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2012″ by a wide margin in a 327-98 vote Wednesday. But lost in the bipartisan revelry was the fact that eight co-sponsors of the legislation actually voted against it.

The eight co-sponsors, all Democrats, that voted against their own legislation not only sponsored the 2012 bill, but each also co-sponsored its 2009 incarnation.

The government owns the rain and snow in Oregon!

Oregon Man Sentenced to 30 Days in Jail -- for Collecting Rainwater on His Property

(CNSNews.com) – A rural Oregon man was sentenced Wednesday to 30 days in jail and over $1,500 in fines because he had three reservoirs on his property to collect and use rainwater.

Gary Harrington of Eagle Point, Ore., says he plans to appeal his conviction in Jackson County (Ore.) Circuit Court on nine misdemeanor charges under a 1925 law for having what state water managers called “three illegal reservoirs” on his property – and for filling the reservoirs with rainwater and snow runoff.

Next time it snows tell the government to come get their water off of your driveway.
