On December 30th 2009, I received an email from Dr. Ron Paul which concluded by him asking me to consider supporting Lamar Smith in his bid for re-election. I instantly thought to myself, "wait a second! Lamar Smith is a 22 year incumbent, two-time bailout voter, AND he voted for the War In Iraq!". This doesn't make sense. Couple that with the fact that a real liberty candidate, Stephen Schoppe, is currently fighting tooth and nail in a low funded raw grassroots campaign to unseat Representative Smith, and I became downright perturbed. I had to get to the bottom of this. I had the opportunity today at a CFL Regional Liberty Conference in Atlanta. Take from it what you will.
Joe Kennedy has closed his email account because of threats:
Unfortunately we have had to shut down this email address. We have been flooded by spam from Brown supporters including insults and threats of violence against me and my family. Please contact another campaign committee member with your request. We apologize for this inconvenience.
A marriage between the "left" and "right," Howard Zinn and RP, two peas from the same pod when it comes to warSubmitted by rhino on Sat, 01/16/2010 - 02:39
Well worth watching...
I think they would agree on most things with regards to foreign policy and wars.
Another that comes to mind ... General Smedley Butler.
A group of individuals worth respect.
The One Day Goal is $20,000 Make your donation at: RJ Harris Money Bomb
The RJ Harris campaign needs to purchase a publicly visible campaign head quarters for the remainder of the campaign. Having raised over $30,000 the campaign has reached poll numbers of 31% and brought Tom Cole down to fewer than 50%. With $250,000 we will not only be able to afford the campaign head quarters, but we can engage in a full throttle advertising push to let Oklahomans understand that they have a real choice for their representative this year. The issue is not whether or not our message is winning, it is whether or not we’ll have enough funds to spread our message to enough voters. On this January 15th, please make your donation and help elect a constitutional conservative to Congress!
"Cass Sunstein has long been one of Barack Obama's closest confidants. Often mentioned as a likely Obama nominee to the Supreme Court, Sunstein is currently Obama's head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs where, among other things, he is responsible for "overseeing policies relating to privacy, information quality, and statistical programs." In 2008, while at Harvard Law School, Sunstein co-wrote a truly pernicious paper proposing that the U.S. Government employ teams of covert agents and psuedo-"independent" advocates to "cognitively infiltrate" online groups and websites -- as well as other activist groups -- which advocate views that Sunstein deems "false conspiracy theories" about the Government. This would be designed to increase citizens' faith in government officials and undermine the credibility of conspiracists. The paper's abstract can be read, and the full paper downloaded, here."
The thing is, this sort of stuff has likely been going on for a while now anyway. How many "cognitive infiltrators" do you think have tried to sway the thinking here at the DP?
Overnight, Haiti has gone from an organized, civil nation to a scenario of total chaos with gangs running wild through the streets, ransacking shops and fighting over food with machetes.
Learning this, many an ignorant westerner might naively say, "That could only happen in Haiti. It's because those people are so poor, so uncivilized. It could never happen here..."
Oh but it could.
Haiti isn't so different from wherever you live -- a city in America, Canada, Australia, the UK or anywhere else. Everywhere in the world, people will fight for survival when the situation becomes desperate. The only reason the streets in your town aren't overrun with firearms and machetes right now is because food is plentiful. The electricity works. The water supply is functioning and police keep the relatively few criminals under control.
But wherever you live, your city is just one natural disaster away from total chaos. Hurricane Katrina proved it: Even in America, a civil, law-abiding city of people can be turned into looting, stealing and dangerously armed bands of gang-bangers.
Today my home was surrounded by Police, FBI, SWAT teams armed with machine guns and even a sniper that set up position in front of the house (not a good sniper since I spotted him right away). They insisted there was a pizza bandit hiding in my home. This is no joke.
SWAT team deploys, but robbery suspect isn't there
[one of many media lies: I never exited the house, nor would I ever in such a situation - that's how you get thrown to the ground, cuffed and arrested, or shot]
They arrived pounding on the doors and windows, so I was already upset to begin with, but then when I answered the door, a plain clothes officer in a parka and night cap, who looked and acted like a criminal himself, jammed his leg in the door so I couldn't close it. When I asked him to move his leg, he refused saying that he had to have his leg there so I couldn't close the door. He said he had to talk to me.
I checked their badges because they were acting like criminals and I wasn't sure if they weren't. They told me who the pizza bandit was and showed me a photo. When I told him I never heard of the pizza bandit and had never seen him before, he insisted I was lying and told me he wanted to search the house. Well, thanks to my education on the Constitution from the Daily Paul, Youtube, and other liberty oriented sites I told him no.
If you haven't done so, read sempiternal's post, SWAT Team Surrounds My Home Looking for Ninja Pizza Bandit. This is the MSM's coverage of the event. Writes sempiternal:
More inaccurate media reporting!
In this one they actually go as far as saying that the robber was at my home earlier, but then "somehow escaped"!
Every single media report has had key facts that were false, and they all have conflicting information too from one media outlet to the next!
The media is entirely unreliable, but that's not news here. The unfortunate thing is the many people trust the news.
This video is about one year old.
