Becoming the first credentialed, well-known media insider to step forward and state publicly that he was secretly a "propagandist," an editor of a major German daily has said that he personally planted stories for the CIA.
Saying he believes a medical condition gives him only a few years to live, and that he is filled with remorse, Dr. Udo Ulfkotte, the editor of Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, one of Germany's largest newspapers, said in an interview that he accepted news stories written and given to him by the CIA and published them under his own name.
Dr. Ulfkotte says the corruption of journalists and major news outlets by the CIA is routine, accepted, and widespread in the western media, and that journalists who do not comply either cannot get jobs at any news organization, or find their careers cut short.
In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, I welcome in award winning independent journalist, the host and producer of the Truth in Media Project, Ben Swann! Ben fills us in on what’s been happening in the past year with BenSwann.com and the Truth in Media Project, why he decided to focus on the issue of police militarization, and how events in Ferguson, MO caused him to rework the project. Ben and I then go on to discuss exactly what “police militarization” is, the detrimental effects the trend is having on individual liberty, and just what is at the root of it all. Be sure to stay tuned for mywrap-up rant, as I get just a little fired up in the Lions of Liberty Studios.

By S.A. Miller - The Washington Times - Sunday, January 25, 2015
Conservatives saw it as raising a white flag when Republican congressional leaders pledged not to withhold funding for the Department of Homeland Security in the fight over President Obama’s deportation amnesty, stoking fears that for the next two years House Speaker John A. Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will consistently surrender.

VIDEO: Sheriff Tells Citizens to Defy NY SAFE Act’s Pistol Permit Renewal Rule at Oath Keepers Meeting [BenSwann.com]

At a January 17 meeting of the Oath Keepers, Fulton County Sheriff Thomas J. Lorey told attendees to defy the state's new pistol permit recertification rule in an effort to gum up the law's enforcement by causing an overwhelming number of permit expirations on the same day.

Barry gave aid and comfort to the enemy, that's treason.
Kinloch, Missouri – Theda Wilson, the former mayor of a Missouri town says that she was assaulted by police after she called 911 to report a burglary in her apartment complex.
“In the back of my apartment I called 9-1-1 thinking they were going to help,” Wilson said.
Unfortunately, “help” is rarely what actually arrives when the police are called, as Wilson soon found out.
As the police arrived, Wilson approached them and let them know that a suspicious person was seen going in and out of a nearby building. That is when police told her that she was under arrest, and instead of explaining anything they moved to physically apprehend her.
Basically, use common sense. This includes:
don't try to do all that shoveling at once.
Stay safe and warm, everyone!

I know I'm a bit like a broken record when it comes to advocating liberty media creators with mainstream potential and all things Ben Swann - but yes! Liberty media creators and all things Ben Swann! :)
Here's two ways you can help promote Ben in a way that will help get him attention from the mainstream -
Nominate Ben for a Shorty Award in the journalist category -
Ben has been the fan favorite in his category the past two years, and I'm thinking the 3rd time could be the charm that they recognize him and he wins the Shorty! (I'm cool with him just winning the fan favorite for his category again too though!)
If you're not familiar with the Shorty Award, Neil Patrick Harris, Big Boi, Will Ferrell and others can be seen talking about it here - http://shortyawards.com/about
With a Washington Post writer in the audience to compose a hatchet job about Ron Paul and his friends, Tom Woods told the crowd exactly how the media operates, and why we're not allowed to discuss serious things.
Texas Lawmaker: Are You Sick and Tired of Begging Government for Your Rights?
Rep. Jonathan Stickland returns! I LOVE this guy!
Jonathan Spence Stickland (born September 4, 1983) is a businessman from Bedford, Texas, who is a Republican member of the Texas House of Representatives from District 92, which encompasses a portion of Tarrant County in suburban Fort Worth.
What I posted on the site:
All I know is that I have a visceral response to Ron Paul. When I hear him speak I think, "There's someone who's telling the TRUTH!" Rand just seems watered down. Also, I was a national delegate who unbound & helped nominate Ron Paul in 2012. Didn't know he was nominated, did you? But, he was. Rancid Prepus & the RNC wouldn't even let Ron give the nomination speech to which he was entitled. What has Rand done about this? Just gotten even cosier in bed with the RNC. Remember the saying about lying down with fleas?

WASHINGTON — Rand Paul is demonstrating how he could disrupt the Republican presidential field if he seeks the nomination, sparring with potential rivals over Iran, Cuba and the Pentagon’s budget in a face-to-face forum that offered an early preview of the feisty policy debate to come.
The Kentucky Republican joined fellow first-term senators Ted Cruz of Texas and Marco Rubio of Florida on stage Sunday evening in California for a summit organized by Freedom Partners. That group is the central hub of the powerful network of organizations backed by conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch.
VIDEO: Ron Paul Refutes Washington Posts Attempt to Paint Him As A Secessionist
On Jan 24th at the Von Mises institute conference in Houston Texas, Kit Daniels asked Ron Paul about the accusations leveled against him by the Washington Post about being a Secessionist. Ron Paul gives a clear and concise answer that refutes those accusations.
Rand Paul sparred with fellow Republican hopefuls last night. Drawing some heat from the crowd, he separated himself from his more hawkish colleagues.
“I’m a big fan of trying the diplomatic option as long as we can…I do think diplomacy is better than war…what are we gonna do? Are you ready to send ground troops in Iran? Are you ready to bomb ‘em? Are you ready to send 100,000 troops?"...
Ted Cruz countered,
“This is the worst negotiation in the history of mankind,” Cruz said, predicting an Iranian nuclear strike in “Tel Aviv, New York or Los Angeles.”
