Oh Jack Hunter, say it ain't so: "Bilderberg conspiracies have become a handicap for the Liberty Movement "

When you get dizzy spinning, should take a break, not look for a new electric motor to keep you spinning.

Bilderberg conspiracies have become a handicap for the Liberty Movement
[No Jack, YOU have.]

by Jack Hunter | June 27, 2012

Bilderbirthers

In 2009, the so-called Birther movement became an embarrassing distraction for the conservative movement. Many conservatives spoke out against the Birthers, who believe President Barack Obama was actually born in Kenya, forged his birth certificate, and is therefore ineligible to be president. I surely did. Still, many insisted on subscribing to it, though luckily their numbers seem fewer today than ever.

For conservatives, Obama is bad. In fact, he's the biggest big-government president to date. Conservatives don't need conspiracy theories to convince them that Obama's agenda must be stopped. There is no need to look for secret conspiracies when the damage is being done in plain sight every day.

Most conservatives have come to see the Birthers as a political handicap, and the same is now true of the vocal minority obsessed with the Bilderberg Group, particularly those within the self-described Liberty Movement to which I belong.

Ron Paul Statement on Supreme Court Obamacare Decision

by Ron Paul | June 28, 2012

"I strongly disagree with today’s decision by the Supreme Court, but I am not surprised. The Court has a dismal record when it comes to protecting liberty against unconstitutional excesses by Congress.

"Today we should remember that virtually everything government does is a 'mandate.' The issue is not whether Congress can compel commerce by forcing you to buy insurance, or simply compel you to pay a tax if you don’t. The issue is that this compulsion implies the use of government force against those who refuse. The fundamental hallmark of a free society should be the rejection of force. In a free society, therefore, individuals could opt out of “Obamacare” without paying a government tribute.

Kucinich Thanks Ron Paul for Federal Reserve Audit Bill

Yet another reason that drones are a really bad idea ...

Seems the US Government challenged a Texas university to hack into and take control of one of their drones. The University of Texas did just that using less than $1,000 of equipment.

From the article: “What if you could take down one of these drones delivering FedEx packages and use that as your missile?” Humphreys asks. “That’s the same mentality the 9-11 attackers had,”

History Lesson: Majority of delegates pledged to Champ Clark; lost at Convention anyway

Wikipedia: In 1912, Clark was the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination, coming into the convention with a majority of delegates pledged to him. But he failed to receive the necessary two-thirds of the vote on the first several ballots. After lengthy negotiation, clever management by supporters of New Jersey Governor Woodrow Wilson, together with widespread allegations of influence by special interests, delivered the nomination instead to Wilson.
