The Dutch National Bank (DNB) announced today that it had repatriated 122.5 tons of gold from the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank in New York.
(Via Telegraph) The UK Independence Party has its second MP (Member of Parliament) in the House of Commons after Mark Reckless won the Rochester and Strood by-election.
Mr Reckless, the constituency’s former Conservative MP who defected in September, won with a 2,930 majority after a bitter seven week campaign.
The victory is further evidence that Ukip’s hold on British politics is strengthening after the party won the Clacton by-election last month.
Thank you Mae Beavers and Andy Holt
NASHVILLE, November 21, 2014– On Friday, in response to President Obama’s plan to take executive action on illegal immigration reform, two Tennessee legislators are filing a Joint Resolution requesting Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam (R) file a lawsuit against the Obama Administration on behalf of the state.
Today, Mexico City's central plaza (the Zocalo) was packed full of people protesting the government-sponsored massacre of 43 students. Protesters are burning President Enrique Peña Nieto in effigy and demanding his resignation, alleging his involvement with drug cartels in the kidnapping and killing of the students.
And of course, I don't have to tell you people, that the revolution is NOT televised. These pics are thanks to Twitter and Facebook.
¡Viva la Revolución!
Hunger Games 2 comes out this friday. I have read the books and saw the first movie. Contrary to what some in the media portray, it is an anti-statist movie and can be very useful to the Liberty movement.
As the much anticipated movie comes out next friday, I pieced together some flyer material that I plan on distributing to people entering and exiting the movie theater. You can view the materials below. Feel free to share and I would be happy to hear suggestions.

Asserting a legal and constitutional authority he himself said he did not have, President Obama is going rogue, issuing an executive amnesty to 4 to 5 million illegal aliens.
He will order the U.S. government not to enforce the law against these 5 million, and declare that they are to be exempt from deportation and granted green cards.
Where did Obama get his 4-5 million figure, not 2-4 million, or 5-7 million? Nowhere in law, but plucked out of his own mind, as to what he can get away with. Barack Obama just felt it was about right.
Thus does our constitutional law professor-president “faithfully execute” the laws of the United States he has twice swore to uphold?

Sen. Rand Paul today issued the following statement in response to President Obama's decision to implement immigration reform through the use of executive action.
"President Obama is not above the law and has no right to issue Executive Amnesty. His actions blatantly ignore the Separations of Powers and the principles our country was founded on. The President has said 22 times previously that he does not have the power to legislate on immigration," Sen. Paul said. "I believe that immigration reform is needed, however for true and effective reform, we must first secure the border. I will not sit idly by and let the President bypass Congress and our Constitution."
Additionally, Sen. Paul appeared last night on the Fox News Channel's On The Record with Greta Van Susteren to discuss President Obama's actions on immigration reform. A clip of the interview can be found HERE or below.
The president cannot act alone; the Constitution requires compromise.

The Constitution designs a system of checks and balances for our nation, and executive amnesty for immigrants here illegally unilaterally decreed from the White House would seriously undermine the rule of law.
Our founders repeatedly warned about the dangers of unlimited power within the executive branch; Congress should heed those words as the president threatens to grant amnesty to millions of people who have come to our country illegally.
To be clear, the dispute over executive amnesty is not between President Obama and Republicans in Congress; it is a dispute between President Obama and the American people. The Democrats suffered historic losses in the midterm elections largely over the prospect of the president’s executive amnesty.
When asked where the buck stops in Ferguson, Missouri, Gov. Jay Nixon literally went silent.
In an excruciating press teleconference, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon (D-MO) attempted to answer questions related to his declaration of a state of emergency in the Ferguson and St. Louis areas.
In audio captured by Guardian reporter Jon Swaine, Nixon is asked by a Huffington Post reporter: “Does the buck ultimately stop with you when it comes to how any protests are policed?”

As Hillary Clinton starts to ponder the curtains she wants to hang in the Oval Office, there is only one person who can realistically stand in her way: Rand Paul.
Readers of this site will be well aware that I spend very little time focusing on Presidential politics. There are many reasons for this, but more than anything else, I believe there are two key components to genuine cultural change, and none of them have to do with electing a savior. These are:
Rader, a 17-year-old senior at PHS, said that after the officer claimed that he had pushed him Rader denied touching the officer. That’s when the ski-masked man shoved him backward into a walkway.
We can then see on the video that the officer sprayed the completely non-violent teen right in the eyes with pepper spray.
