If there is hope, you are it. You are motivated to find truth. You can think outside the box. You can see through propaganda. You are the remnant with the common sense that once was a common American virtue. You come to this site, because you get explanations that are not agenda-driven, that are not BS, that are not right-wing or left-wing, conservative or liberal, Republican or Democrat. You get explanations based on my lifetime of unique education and experience. Some of you are young enough to be equipped with the energy and courage to organize whatever resistance there may be to the Gestapo State that is descending on the United States of America. This is your site. Support it.
Don't forget to call your senators. Here's a list of "your" Senators:
NYPD Officer: " “If you're not a terrorist, if you’re not a threat, prove it“This is the price you pay to live in free society"Submitted by Verrater on Sun, 05/05/2013 - 19:57
Teenagers, social media, and terrorism: a threat level hard to assess.
Using a zero tolerance approach to track domestic terrorists online is the only reasonable way to analyze online threats these days, especially after the Boston Marathon bombing and news that the suspects had subsequently planned to target Times Square in Manhattan, Mullins says. The way law enforcement agencies approach online activity that appears sinister is this: “If you’re not a terrorist, if you’re not a threat, prove it,” he says.
Federal Reserve Blows More Bubbles [Link thanks to adap2k]
Last week at its regular policy-setting meeting, the Federal Reserve announced it would double down on the policies that have failed to produce anything but a stagnant economy. It was a disappointing, but not surprising, move.
@LukeBozier just tweeted this, said it was huge explosion just now in Damascus. Haven't seen anything reported in media yet. Man this looks like a freaking mushroom cloud.
Update: Reuters reporting it was Israeli attack now as well
Jennifer Grossman (formerly w/Cato Institute, now Senior VP at Dole Fruit) is heading up a liberty/libertarian television network along with Michael Strong (run’s John Mackey’s Conscious Capitalism org) and Ricky Ray Butler. (Plaid Media/Endorse Liberty PAC) Ricky Ray is also introducing Jennifer to the other tech geniuses/Silicon Valley creatives who were the motor behind that PAC that supported Ron Paul last year.

A former FBI counterterrorism agent claims on CNN that this is the case
Saturday 4 May 2013
The real capabilities and behavior of the US surveillance state are almost entirely unknown to the American public because, like most things of significance done by the US government, it operates behind an impenetrable wall of secrecy. But a seemingly spontaneous admission this week by a former FBI counterterrorism agent provides a rather startling acknowledgment of just how vast and invasive these surveillance activities are.
43 years ago today. The Kent State shootings. 4 were killed when the Ohio National Guard shot at the UNarmed college students while they protested US involvement in the Vietnam War.
Here is an in depth article about it provided by Jefferson:

Here they go again. The Obama administration has asked its allies in Congress to introduce legislation that would permit the feds to continue their march through the Fourth Amendment when it comes to obtaining private information about all of us.
"The United States believes Israel has conducted an airstrike into Syria, two U.S. officials tell CNN.
U.S. and Western intelligence agencies are reviewing classified data showing Israel most likely conducted a strike in the Thursday-Friday time frame, according to both officials. This is the same time frame that the U.S. collected additional data showing Israel was flying a high number of warplanes over Lebanon.

Some of the faces are out of date (the 2012 GOP presidential contenders seem rather unlikely to be remembered by history), but in light of the viciousness toward Ron Paul over the past several weeks, I thought this was appropriate.

and barrel (as to comply w/1988 Undetectable Firearms Act), it's 100% 3D-printed polymer. Looks aside, the point is the proof of concept. To that end, it's a success:
"Holder's understanding of the United States Constitution is incorrect."
It's great to see Kansas come right back at Holder pointing out that he is in error when it comes to his interpretation of the constitution, but also the hypocrisy he displays by seeking to prosecute others for standing up for their rights, while turning a blind eye to his own violations.
Eagle Scout, Senior High School Honor Student 2 Wks Shy of Graduation, Expelled & Charged with FelonySubmitted by RobHino on Fri, 05/03/2013 - 02:31
Meet Cole Withrow from Princeton, NC. Eagle Scout; great student; devout Christian; responsible citizen. Just two weeks shy of high school graduation... and now, ACCUSED FELON?!?
Cole arrived to school Monday morning and reached behind the seat of his truck to get his book bag. He suddenly realized he'd accidentally left his shotgun in his vehicle after bring out fishing and shooting over the weekend and that it needed to be returned home immediately.
Afraid of getting in trouble for skipping class, Cole locked his truck, walked to the front office and called his mother to come and retrieve it, as he couldn't leave school; he would miss class.
Due to his conversation being overheard by school staff, the police were called, Cole was arrested and charged with a felony, along with a year's expulsion. He will not be able to graduate with his class.
If you believe this boy acted responsibly and doesn't deserve this, PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE IT! Thank you! Info below:
