Armored vehicle sent to collect civil fine from 75-year-old in small town


By UPI Staff | Oct. 26, 2014

STETTIN, Wis., Oct. 26 (UPI) -- A small Wisconsin town sent an armored vehicle and 24 armed officers to collect a civil fine from a 75-year-old man.

Roger Hoeppner is filing a federal civil rights lawsuit after authorities came out in force to collect an $80,000 civil fine stemming from property disputes.

Marathon County Sheriff's Capt. Greg Bean says the armored vehicle was only sent to the property because Hoeppner initially refused to come out of his house.

Ex-CBS reporter says government bugged her computer

By Kyle Smith and Bruce Golding | October 27, 2014 |

A former CBS News reporter who quit the network over claims it kills stories that put President Obama in a bad light says she was spied on by a “government-related entity” that planted classified documents on her computer.

In her new memoir, Sharyl Attkisson says a source who arranged to have her laptop checked for spyware in 2013 was “shocked” and “flabbergasted” at what the analysis revealed.

“This is outrageous. Worse than anything Nixon ever did. I wouldn’t have believed something like this could happen in the United States of America,” Attkisson quotes the source saying.

In Pennsylvania woods, Eric Frein eludes a massive manhunt

He is a self-trained sniper, survivalist, cop hater and, according to police, a cold-blooded killer who watched his victim die with clinical interest.

For six weeks Eric Frein has dodged one of the largest manhunts in Pennsylvania history, hiding in a small section of the Pocono Mountains he knows intimately and eating ramen noodles and cans of tuna that police say he cached for the ultimate war game.

Jeb Bush’s tax stand could plague possible 2016 presidential run

There is something about taxes, spending and the name “Bush” that can set conservatives on edge, especially now that Jeb Bush is talking like a man who might run for president.

The latest example came earlier this month when testimony Mr. Bush gave at a 2012 House Budget Committee hearing suddenly resurfaced in a news story. In those two-year-old comments, Mr. Bush said he could accept a fiscal deal of $1 in tax increases for every $10 in spending cuts that Democrats would agree to — a position that drew sharp criticism from one of the nation’s fiscal hawks.

Atlas Snubbed: The Director's Cut

A few weeks ago, I posted my review of the new sequel to Atlas Shrugged, Ken Krawchuk's Atlas Snubbed. If you missed it, you can read that review here. At the time I purchased and read the book, I did not know that there was a longer "Director's Cut" version, available directly from the author. I loved the "abridged" version, and happily rushed to purchase the longer version. I have just finished reading it, and want to share my thoughts on both.

In the Afterword to the "Director's Cut" version,Krawchuk had this to say:

"(...)the chapter titles also include an indication of the story's setting, either in the East or West United States. This delineation is useful because the East and West stories are completely unrelated to each other despite the fact they occur simultaneously, have many characters in common, and their plots overlap in numerous places. This means that either the East or West chapters can be read entirely independently of the other with absolutely no loss of context. Further, their basic themes are completely different, making them two very-different stories. West, the more important of the two in my opinion, focuses on the key political and philosophical issues of the book, while East, on the other hand, is a purely post-apocalyptic tale with only a passing nod at philosophy."

Law Lets I.R.S. Seize Accounts on Suspicion, No Crime Required

ARNOLDS PARK, Iowa — For almost 40 years, Carole Hinders has dished out Mexican specialties at her modest cash-only restaurant. For just as long, she deposited the earnings at a small bank branch a block away — until last year, when two tax agents knocked on her door and informed her that they had seized her checking account, almost $33,000.

Ron Paul's Institute For Peace & Prosperity: Once-Peaceful Canada Turns Militaristic; Blowback Follows

Ron Paul's Institute For Peace & Prosperity: Once-Peaceful Canada Turns Militaristic; Blowback Follows

Written by Ron Paul
Sunday, October 26, 2014

In 1968 the government of Canada decided to openly admit Americans seeking to avoid being drafted into the US war on Vietnam. Before, would-be immigrants were technically required to prove that they had been discharged from US military service. This move made it easier for Americans to escape President Johnson’s war machine by heading north.
