Ben Swann New Video - Truth in Media: Feds Says Cannabis Is Not Medicine While Holding The Patent on Cannabis as MedicineSubmitted by USA 2012 on Tue, 09/16/2014 - 13:00

For those who believe in marijuana and cannabis freedom, the future has never been brighter. Right now there is an awakening to the benefits of cannabis for medicinal purposes, specifically something called CBD oil. But is the new CBD craze being manipulated by media and politicians? If it weren’t we wouldn’t need to do a show about it.
The first step toward truth is to be informed.
Take Action: View the "Activate" Plan at the end of the story
It is a rare morning that Mark can sleep in, so I got dressed in the dark. The chickens don't care if I am color coordinated. Turned out I had my "I Support Ron Paul" T-shirt on. Once Mark got up, we headed to "the big city" for some supplies.
First stop was the local Farmer's Supply where I was in line behind a man in a "Don't Tread On Me" T-shirt. I had something covering my shirt, so I let my arms drop down until he could read it. We exchanged a smile that said "Glad to see you."

“I tell you, freedom and human rights in America are doomed. The U.S. government will lead the American people in — and the West in general — into an unbearable hell and a choking life.”—Osama bin Laden (October 2001), as reported by CNN
What a strange and harrowing road we’ve walked since September 11, 2001, littered with the debris of our once-vaunted liberties. We have gone from a nation that took great pride in being a model of a representative democracy to being a model of how to persuade a freedom-loving people to march in lockstep with a police state.
What began with the passage of the USA Patriot Act in October 2001 has snowballed into the eradication of every vital safeguard against government overreach, corruption and abuse. Since then, we have been terrorized, traumatized, and tricked into a semi-permanent state of compliance. The bogeyman’s names and faces change over time—Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein and now ISIS—but the end result remains the same: our unquestioning acquiescence to anything the government wants to do in exchange for the phantom promise of safety and security.
Ironically, just a short week after the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we find ourselves commemorating the 227th anniversary of the ratification of our Constitution. Yet while there is much to mourn about the loss of our freedoms in the years since 9/11, there has been little to celebrate.
If Assad dares to defend his country from illegal American airstrikes...America will bomb him for that too!Submitted by go213mph on Tue, 09/16/2014 - 08:55
This kind of rationale reminds me of all the people here in Amerika being arrested for resisting arrest. Assad must sit by and allow the US Air Force (and drones) to bomb his nation...or else Amerika will double down and bring MORE death and destruction to Syria. Kind of like a parent telling some child to "stop that crying or I will really give you something to cry about". Unflippingbelievable!
Record Beheadings and Mass Arrest of Christians :Saudi Arabia
I have highlighted the inhumanity of the Saudi regime frequently recently in order to demonstrate the incredible hypocrisy of U.S. foreign policy.
• Saudi Arabia Passes New Law that Declares Atheists “Terrorists”
• Saudi Arabia Passes Draconian, Medieval Laws to Crush Dissent
• Saudi Man Receives 3 Year Prison Sentence and 450 Lashes for Being Gay
It broke Ruth Freeborn’s heart to give up her U.S. citizenship that fateful day last year. Unfortunately for the Oklahoma native, though, it was either that, or her family. Ruth’s Canadian husband of 33 years, who earns all of the middle-class family’s income, “simply could not go along with this situation,” she explained. “To find myself suddenly not able to live, bank, save or to keep peace in my marriage while being American at the same time was shocking at first and deeply disturbing to me.”

John McCain’s slip of the tongue won’t help him quell Internet accusations that he once met and took pictures with members of the terrorist group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
Appearing on Fox News’ “Hannity” Monday night, the Arizona Republican senator went off on Rand Paul after host Sean Hannity brought up the Kentucky Republican senator’s concern that providing weapons to Syrian rebels will only end up benefiting ISIS.

The Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur rarely has kind words for Republicans, but on Monday he said he would be willing to bet money that Rand Paul would beat Hillary Clinton and win the presidency in 2016.
Uygur credited Paul as a “voice of reason” on fighting ISIS, in contrast to Clinton’s hawkishness. He agreed that “our invasion of Iraq in the first place and all of the other bombings we’ve done in the Middle East… has in fact led to the rise of ISIS.”
A Soldier's Musty Virtues
"How long shall we sit in our porticoes practicing idle and musty virtues,which any work would make impertinent?"
- Henry David Thoreau, Walden
I took a class in college. It had something to do with the psychology of choice. What motivates the choices of men?..... Reason? Experience? Fame? Emotion?.... Love? Hate? Fear? I guess it could be any one of these things at any given time. The premise of the class has always sparked some interest in me. The question sometimes weighs on me.Why do people do some of the things they do? How do they find courage and strength to do what is right?
I joined the Army when I was 18. In 2010, I found myself in Afghanistan, working on a Civil Affairs team on a small outpost near the Pakistan border in Eastern Afghanistan.. The summer of 2010 was perhaps one of the most intense years in the Afghanistan War to date. That summer I learned a lot of things. A lot of things about me... About life and death... About joy and sorrow. But I can name the day that really changed my outlook on living this life.
One day we received rocket, mortar, and gunfire from the hills surrounding our outposts. One of my teammates and I immediately grabbed our weapons and gear and ran for the roof of one of the buildings. We climbed to the top. We started looking through the scopes on our rifles for any sign of the Taliban on the surrounding mountainsides. We hadn't been up there for more than 5 minutes, searching,when all of a sudden the cracking and buzzing sound of bullets could be heard between us. Seconds later a rocket could be heard flying overhead and exploded outside the compound behind us. I yelled "I think they see us!" and he responded "No shit!" And that second, my buddy and I looked at each other, as if to say "Nice knowing you," and he went back to scanning. The bullets still whizzing by. I was scared shitless.
When everything calmed down and the attack stopped, I couldn't help thinking and asking my buddy, "What makes a man keep scanning,like you did, despite all the things that are going crazy around him?"
Rand ahead in New Hampshire.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is leading the pack of potential Republican presidential contenders, but the GOP race is wide open according to a new poll.
In a CNN/ORC poll released on Monday, 15 percent of those polled said that they would most likely support Paul from a long list of contenders. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Rep. Paul Ryan (Wis.) follow with 10 percent, followed by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee with support falling at 9 percent.
Special correspondents Alexander Kots and Dmitry Steshin drove through the villages and the territories liberated from the National Guard and the Ukrainian Army, alongside the “Trophy Group”, observing how the Militia obtains their weapons.
Grown-up “toys” for children
“Oi, brats, over here! Turn out the backpacks,” the soldier from the Oplot Battalion calls to a group of teenagers, with a commanding voice. The grimy boys stop digging around the ex-field camp of the Ukrainian Army, near the village of Kuteynikovo, and shuffle over.
Over the years on the Daily Paul I saw many cool "what is your favorite song" posts.
How about favorite educational quotes?
Today while searching for some material to post on Twitter I came across this great quote that moved me so much when I was growing up as a teen in at the time Communist Poland:
"In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act."
- George Orwell
So what is your favorite quote/s?
"For everyday Americans, ignorance about what lies within the 28 pages is imposed; for apparently far too many in Congress, that ignorance is willful.
You see—unlike the citizens they represent—when it comes to reading or not reading the 28 pages, legislators enjoy the luxury of a choice."
"Given legislators’ role in advocating, shaping and funding defense and foreign policy, one would think descriptions like those offered by Jones and Massie would instantly spark a long, long queue outside that soundproof room in the Capitol—if not prompted by representatives’ professional curiosity, then surely by simple human curiosity.
I try to listen (or at least I did) to Larry Kudlow's weekly radio show.
Kudlow usually espouses the principles of free market capitalism.
But this past weekend he completely crapped the bed on his show.
All he could talk about was how we should send in our military over there to fight the ISIS threat which he claims "will be coming here next."
He sounded like a posterboy for the GOP war-mongers.
The 2nd thing he said which pissed me off was that he slammed gold and goldbugs (like us I suppose).
