US House to Vote on Imposing National ID Cards Worldwide ‘For the Children’

The US House of Representatives is scheduled to vote this week on HR 3398, legislation stating that it is the policy of the United States government to encourage other nations to require all citizens to have national identity cards.

HR 3398 also directs the US government to work with multinational organizations and private entities on imposing registration, identification, and documentation laws on people around the world. As is often the case with legislation intended to increase government power and expand foreign intervention, HR 3398 presents as its justification helping the children

Rand Paul Beats Ted Cruz, Saves NSA From ‘Reform’

One wants to fix the spy agency from the inside. The other wanted to block watered-down reforms of the secret state. The winner just might get to be President.

The fight to rein in NSA surveillance stalled in the Senate Tuesday evening — meaning the lasting impact of the months-long reform effort will be less about the agency and more about the presidential aspirations of Sens. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz.

I Feel So Guilty

I feel so guilty.

The last few days I've listened to more Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Fox News, and even tonight watched Bill O'Reilly. I never do that.

It's not because I like Fox, or any of these clowns. I agree with very little of what they stand for (and what they stand for is very little). It's because of this Gruber thing. They're onto it, ripping into Gruber like junkyard dogs and I revel in the mayhem. I want to see Gruber taken down and humiliated. I want to see the administration and everyone associated with it who supported the Affordable Care Act eat crow. I feel like I did in the year 2000 when I was a neocon and watched Fox News endlessly. I feel sick. Blah.

How would a stateless society handle animal abuse, wildlife management?

I usually don't post here on the DP, but I have an honest question. I'm still new to the idea of a voluntarist/stateless society and haven't educated myself on the subject as much as I should. I'm trying to change that. I didn't even know what libertarianism was until 2011, so cut me some slack. Anyway, my question is, how would animal abuse be dealt with, without the presence of animal cops? I ask because I had on "Animal Cops" on the discovery channel this morning while cooking breakfast. Got me thinking.

Prosecutor Will Go to Jail for Wrongfully Convicting an Innocent Man

For the First Time Ever, a Prosecutor Will Go to Jail for Wrongfully Convicting an Innocent Man

Today in Texas, former prosecutor and judge Ken Anderson pled guilty to intentionally failing to disclose evidence in a case that sent an innocent man, Michael Morton, to prison for the murder of his wife. When trying the case as a prosecutor, Anderson possessed evidence that may have cleared Morton, including statements from the crime's only eyewitness that Morton wasn't the culprit. Anderson sat on this evidence, and then watched Morton get convicted. While Morton remained in prison for the next 25 years, Anderson's career flourished, and he eventually became a judge.

In today's deal, Anderson pled to criminal contempt, and will have to give up his law license, perform 500 hours of community service, and spend 10 days in jail. Anderson had already resigned in September from his position on the Texas bench.

Russia Amends Law on Firearm Possession for Self-Defense

Wow. I mean really... wow. Just like that. Holeeeeeee Shit!
Is RT 'infiltrating' us or are WE (Liberty Lovers) infiltrating them??
Sometimes I think that all the 'coverage' they gave and give to Ron Paul has caused minds and hearts (at the highest levels) to think. Think hard. Amazing. I WISH I could prove it.. RP deserves SO much more credit than this world will EVER know. God knows. :)
Congratulations to the citizens of Russia.

Is it fair to say the purpose of American Media is no longer to inform but to manipulate?

As someone who used to work for the market research industry, I've come to have an appreciation of the importance of perception in shaping public opinion. When I say perception, I want you to think of a phrase called character assassination and think about what that implies. For instance remember That French guy http://www.theguardian.com/world/2011/may/19/dominique-strau... Dominique Strauss Kahn who was head of the International Monetary fund, who was accused of raping a maid at his hotel. He was forced to step down from his position and ostracized.

The Powers That Shouldn't Be

The Powers That Shouldn't Be

The powers that shouldn't be,
Enslave you and me,
From the thug with the badge and gun,
To the president, the selected one.

Doctors and Big Pharma culling the herd,
With treatments deadly and absurd,
Yet foods that create and promote health,
Are banned from the shelf,
Monsanto and the state,
Are determined to depopulate.

The powers that shouldn't be,
Are monitoring you and me,
Eavesdropping on what we say,
Everywhere is the NSA.

Gun control is the plan today,
Tomorrow take them all away,
Monopoly of force is their goal,

Good News! An idea to boost morale

Tag Suggestion: Good news or positive updates, a place to share and find the progress being made in the liberty movement.

----

Sometimes in the struggle for freedom, it can feel like the headlines are always setbacks. We constantly see just how bad the situation is--scandals, corruption, conspiracies--an endless stream of the Man sticking it to us any way he can. It can feel hopeless and we can become discouraged, and give up on the fight.
