Hey Daily Paul, I got an exclusive with Congressman Bentivolio regarding the reach that his bill has. The Safe and Secure Act will shut down any federal website that you enter personal information if the site is hacked or compromised by hackers and yes the NSA. This billed just passed the House unanimously and if it passes the Senate then the Obamacare website will have to be shut down immediately.

The Federal Marijuana Ban Is Rooted in Myth and Xenophobia

This is all common knowledge to those who've read, The Emperor Wears No Clothes

The federal law that makes possession of marijuana a crime has its origins in legislation that was passed in an atmosphere of hysteria during the 1930s and that was firmly rooted in prejudices against Mexican immigrants and African-Americans, who were associated with marijuana use at the time. This racially freighted history lives on in current federal policy, which is so driven by myth and propaganda that is it almost impervious to reason.

Peter Schiff and Doug Casey on the REAL State of the Economy

Another One-Sided Israel Vote Scheduled Today In Congress

It has been only a few days since Congress re-affirmed its support for the Israeli government's assault on Gaza, in which nearly 1,500 Palestinians have been killed.

In this ongoing operation, some three out of four Palestinians killed have been civilians. The infrastructure has been decimated. Gaza's only power generation plant has been destroyed by Israel, meaning life is about to get that much more hellish for innocent civilians

The MH17 Crash: US Veteran Intelligence Officers Slam the Flimsy “Intelligence” Against Russia

Senior U.S. Intelligence Officers: Obama Should Release Ukraine Evidence

Preface: With the shoot-down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over Ukraine turning a local civil war into a U.S. confrontation with Russia, former high-level U.S. intelligence veterans released a statement today urging President Obama to release what evidence he has about the tragedy and silence the exaggeration and rush to judgment. (The whole post is a must-read; but we at Washington’s Blog have added bolding for emphasis.)

Kafkaesque Banality of Everyday Tyranny Actualized: Anally Raped Victim of NM Cop TerroristS Profiled by Reason TV

Suppose if Nazi rapists did the following for a living during the short reign of the unicorn 1000yr Reich that never was, they'd be this clinically nonchalant about the normalcy rationale, of what they were about to do; no amount of tax-payers' stolen wealth/monetary compensation can ever erase the visceral, permanent body-memory of loss of dignity & inhumane treatment (predictable, of course) by the terrorist State:

The Walters' Animals

Some time back there was a thread where people posted pics of their pets, but at the time, I didn't participate. After looking through some pics tonight, I'm feeling a little sentimental and thought I might post a few.

Glenn Greenwald: IDF Are Terrorists

Terrorism in the Israeli Attack on Gaza

Jewish journalist Glenn Greenwald SLAMMED IDF (led by their demonic-satanic leader Netanyahu) as terrorists.

If you landed on earth from another planet this week, knowing nothing other than the most common use of the word “terrorism,” which side do you think would most frequently be referred to as “terrorists”?

Inside the Great Pyramid at Giza

Back when I went a little bit crazy, I flew into Cairo, where I stayed in a hostel for about a week. From there, I took a cab to Giza to see the Pyramids up close. Of course I'd seen pictures of them, and I'd read all kinds of crazy things about them, but I wanted to go there to see if I felt anything.

There had been a massacre of tourists in Luxor about six months before I arrived, and as a result Giza was completely deserted. It should have been a blessing, but I could not go more than a minute without encountering a tout who wanted to sell me: Water, Fanta, Coca-Cola, pictures of hieroglyphics on fake papyrus, a ride on a camel (which I eventually did take), even - I kid you not - a Barbie doll.

The only place I could get any peace and quiet was inside the pyramid itself, where I took this selfie on an analog SLR with 35mm film. I promised in another thread that I'd post it, so here it is!

Those were the days. Young and wild and free!
