"Since the Seattle raid, the globe has been swept with outrage when the Russian activists Pussy Riot were jailed for similar expressions of their freedom of speech. Especially here in America, observers found the punitive role of Putin and the corruption of the Russian justice system to be intolerable. Many notables, from human rights groups to the rock star Madonna, stood up for the punk band with the rallying cry "Free Pussy Riot!"

Ron Paul supporters turn out in droves for speech at UVU w/ Video

Though he is no longer in the race, thousands turned out for Ron Paul's appearance at Utah Valley University Thursday.

The Texas congressman and former Republican presidential candidate's "revolution" continues for droves who turned out to hear him give his 45 minute speech at the school. The speech, which he delivered without notes, ranged in issues from free markers, the deficit, welfare, poverty and limited government.

"Once you endorse the principle of welfarism, guess what? The poor get poorer, and the rich get richer," he said. "It's a totally failed system. And we can't be intimidated by those that argue, 'If you don't support the welfare system, you're not a humanitarian.'"

Local Police Keep Secret Files on MA Protesters for Homeland Security

Related: ACLU: Records Reveal Boston Police Spy on Political and Peace Groups

WHDH News 7: Law enforcement officials are secretly videotaping events, and creating secret "intelligence files" on innocent people. Are you in these videos? If you were at the peace march at the Park Street T in downtown Boston last October you might be. But 7news didn't shoot this--it's from Boston police department's secret surveillance files. Files marked "homeland security" and "extremist."

Now two major civil rights groups are calling for the practice to stop. How could it happen?

You have to listen to Dr. Jill Stein talk about being arrested outside the debate this week. Your blood will BOIL!

This is an interesting dialogue between Gary Johnson & Jill Stein about the issues as they apply to their presidential campaigns. I knew that Jill & her VP were arrested outside the debate this week, but how they were treated made me run to my computer to post this. The "arrest" part starts at 21 minutes. You have to at least listen to that part.

What country are we living in when bonafide presidential candidates get arrested & hancuffed to chairs for hours?

Story from the McDonald's drive-thru

I got some Mickey D's last night before work.

Girl at Window: *Looks at my sign in the back window* "Ron Paul, huh?"
Me: "That's right!"
Girl: "Never heard of him"
Me: "Not surprised... the media never talks about him because he speaks the truth. You should google him"
Girl: "He's running for President?"
Me: "He was. Not anymore though. The Republican Party disenfranchised a whole voting block of liberty minded voters and made sure to shut out Ron Paul at the convention"
Girl: "Oh I see. Still got your signs up though!"

Can I get everyone's objective opinion on this please? Thank you.

I'm going to write a letter to the editor for my local paper (Beaver Dam Daily Citizen, Beaver Dam, WI), and may also do this as well for the largest papers in Wisconsin, too.

Here's what I intend to submit to my local paper tomorrow:

In 18 days, we head to the polls to cast our vote for the President. And probably about 95% of us will be voting for either President Obama, or Governor Mitt Romney.

However, the fact is that NEITHER of these two men have done a single thing to deserve the votes most will give them.

Under Obama, we have seen the “Nobel Peace Prize” winner further expand our military adventurism around the globe, and WITHOUT proper Congressional approval for these actions. We have seen the debt ceiling raised multiple times, because our debt gets larger. We have seen continued and further erosion of our liberties with the reauthorization of the Patriot Act, and the signing of the NDAA which allows for the indefinite detention of American citizens WITHOUT due process. We have seen the further deterioration of our economy, further debasing of our currency, and rule by executive order. We have also seen criminal misconduct by Attorney General Eric Holder on the infamous “Fast and Furious” program that has led to his being found in Contempt of Congress for his lack of transparency. An American teenager suspected of nothing is dead today because of the drone strikes authorized by this President as well. There are dead diplomats as well that should be alive.

You Can't Solve A Problem

You can't solve a problem until you admit you have a problem.

After five years of researching and observation of the world around me, I had to admit that the country I thought we were was an Illusion.

Elections are an Illusion of choice, our military are used as Invaders not as Defenders of Liberty. Our schools are not for Education but Indoctrination. Capitalism is a cover for Corporatism. That the media I Trusted is Untrustworthy.

The so called Professional community whether it is Science, Medicine or other is under the control of elitists who block out competition of thought and discovery.

What a depressing time it has been, realizing that the people you've trusted with your vote and loyalty are under the control of a Global cartel with an agenda. I always knew there were greedy politicians but I never knew they would turn on their country and purposely destroy it. I also know, that they are under GREAT pressure to go along with the agenda are risk being dismissed, ruined or family threatened or terminated. It cannot be easy to do such things for a pay check.

Mind control seems to play a big part in their agenda which makes sense since normal people would not be willing to go along with their own demise.

7 Phrases You Can't Say In Presidential Debates

While nodding in and out of the 2nd Presidential Debate last night in order to bring our fans their much-expected tweets, it occurred to me that, in addition to the secret debate agreement made regarding how the debate would be conducted, there must be some sort of even more secret list of banned phrases. As far as I can tell, not only were some of the most important topics relating to the office of the Presidency completely ignored, but there were some key phrases that weren’t even allowed to be uttered.

A brief scan through the full transcript shows that I was dead on. Without further ado, the 7 phrases you haven’t and won’t hear in the U.S. Presidential Debates:

“Constitution”

When the President of The United States is sworn into office, he puts his hand on The Constitution and swears an oath to the best of his ability to ”preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” It’s literally right there in his job description. So shouldn’t it maybe get at least a superficial mention? This would be like the Boston Red Sox interviewing for a new manager and never mentioning “baseball”. Though that may actually be how their interview with Bobby Valentine went last year.

“NDAA”

Growing! Welfare up 34% Now Tops $1 Trillion

Washington Times: Welfare spending has grown substantially over the past four years, reaching $746 billion in 2011 — or more than Social Security, basic defense spending or any other single chunk of the federal government — according to a new memo by the Congressional Research Service.
