Have you heard about First Amendment zones? Basically whenever the Feds come to town they designate an area of your town where you can invoke the First Amendment and speak/protest. What this fails to recognize is the rest of the First Amendment including religion. There is nothing more repugnant to the Constitution than this policy. We exude the First Amendment simply by being American. Are my religion or seditious thoughts not legitimate if I am standing next to the president or a federal agent?
Oklahoma residents who produce their own energy through solar panels or small wind turbines on their property will now be charged an additional fee, the result of a new bill passed by the state legislature and expected to be signed into law by Gov. Mary Fallin (R).
On Monday, S.B. 1456 passed the state House 83-5 after no debate. The measure creates a new class of customers: those who install distributed power generation systems like solar panels or small wind turbines on their property and sell the excess energy back to the grid. While those with systems already installed won’t be affected, the new class of customers will now be charged a monthly fee — a shift that happened quickly and caught many in the state off guard.
Not that I think this is a lead up to a false flag or anything, but it is something to be aware of. And I'm kind of glad that I'm going to be out of town for this year's marathon.

The Weekly Standard - The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) will spend the four days leading up to the Boston Marathon conducting a helicopter-based survey to measure naturally occurring background radiation in a ten square mile area west of downtown Boston. The measurements are being taken to "establish baseline levels [which] is a normal part of security and emergency preparedness", especially before large public events such as the marathon. A similar survey was conducted in northern New Jersey and New York City before the Superbowl in January.
The NNSA made the announcement to alert residents who may be alarmed by the low-flying aircraft. The twin-engine helicopter out of the military's Joint Base Andrews in Maryland will fly a grid pattern as low as 150 feet above the ground at 80 miles per hour, though only during daylight hours.
Bundy Ranch Nevada Update 1: Call to Stand
April 17, 2014 by Roberta
The Washington team left Nevada yesterday. Before they left, Gavin recorded a brief call to action by Stewart Rhodes, founder of OathKeepers:
"The state of Michigan has just became the 34th state to vote that a Constitutional Convention be called, and no one really noticed. Now the required 34 States Call for Constitutional Convention."
“Being incoherent is a problem,” John Bolton said last night of Rand Paul’s column on what he’d do about Iran’s nuclear program.
Rand Paul wrote a column yesterday called Where I stand on containing Iran, defending his foreign policy positions with regard to Iran and aligning himself with former President Ronald Reagan. But John Bolton said he found the column as incoherent as the remark that led to the article:
'Being incoherent is a problem and that’s what his op-ed was and that’s what the remark that originally provoked it was. He was asked about what to do about Iran’s nuclear weapons program and he couldn’t quite get it out whether he really wants to stop Iran from getting nuclear weapons or how he intends to do it or what he intends to say about it.'
In an historic 104-page ruling, Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada has struck a major blow for property rights and, at the same time, has smacked down federal agencies that have been riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners. The long-awaited ruling, which had been expected before the end of last year, was finally issued at the end of May. The court case, U.S. v. Hage, has been keenly watched by legal analysts and constitutional scholars — but has been completely ignored by the major media.
According to several reports breaking on social media Wednesday, federal agents targeting the Bundy Ranch in Clark County, Nev. did much more than merely herd hundreds of cows away from the site prior to backing down from their position Saturday. The following graphic images are being distributed by the Bundy Ranch as proof that multiple head of cattle were slaughtered, apparently under the direction of federal Bureau of Land Management officers.
"(R-Mich.) Rep. Justin Amash is enjoying wide support for his campaign, which is looking and more and more like it will end with him keeping his congressional seat.
According to the latest press release, the campaign “raised more than $224,000 during the most recent fundraising quarter and stockpiled more than $840,000 in cash on hand.”
Also of note, Amash’s campaign raised more money from individuals than any other U.S. House campaign in Michigan."
In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, I am joined by Dr. Murray Sabrin, Professor of Finance at Ramapo College and Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in New Jersey. Dr. Sabrin describes how he and his family came to America from West Germany after surviving the Holocaust, before going on to discuss how he became a libertarian, studying with Murray Rothbard, and what he hopes to achieve with his Senate campaign. I also get Dr. Sabrin’s thoughts on several topics including U.S. foreign policy, the War on Drugs, and Senator Rand Paul.
Without an autopsy, Leone said, "That could make things a little more complicated in getting an expert medical opinion on the cause of death and tying it to the a causal factor."
