When a bipartisan Senate panel last week lambasted Swiss bank Credit Suisse for helping rich Americans evade billions in taxes, some watching the high-profile hearing couldn’t help but notice an elephant in the room.
That is, Sen. Rand Paul.
The connection? Paul for years has single-handedly blocked an obscure U.S.-Swiss tax treaty that lawmakers, prosecutors, diplomats and banks say makes the difference between U.S. law enforcement rooting out the names of a few hundred fat-cat tax evaders — and many thousands more.

Is it the voting machines, or did Texans like those insulting "I fight Obama everyday" radio spots? Representative Lamar Smith, TX 21, changed the name and ran the same ad.
How can results be called in an hour? Have you ever tried to organize people to coordinate something technical? American elections look like a sham. "Just click this button, Bob, and you'll win the election. Oh, a recount? No, the other button."

Moscow (AFP) - Russia could reduce to zero its economic dependency on the United States if Washington agreed sanctions against Moscow over Ukraine, a Kremlin aide said on Tuesday, warning that the American financial system faced a "crash" if this happened.
"We would find a way not just to reduce our dependency on the United States to zero but to emerge from those sanctions with great benefits for ourselves," said Kremlin economic aide Sergei Glazyev.
He told the RIA Novosti news agency Russia could stop using dollars for international transactions and create its own payment system using its "wonderful trade and economic relations with our partners in the East and South."
Russian firms and banks would also not return loans from American financial institutions, he said.

WASHINGTON — Shortly after Senator Rand Paul filed suit last month against the Obama administration to stop its electronic dragnet of American phone records, he sat down for lunch with Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. in his private dining room at the Justice Department.
Mr. Paul, a Kentucky Republican, is one of the Obama administration’s most vocal critics. But their discussion focused on an issue on which they have found common cause: eliminating mandatory minimum sentences for nonviolent drug offenders.
The two men are unlikely allies. Their partnership unites the nation’s first African-American attorney general, who sees his legacy in a renewed focus on civil rights, and some of Congress’s most prominent libertarians, who have accused the Obama administration of trampling on personal freedom with drones, wiretaps, tracking devices and too much government.

DNR counter-sued Baker, and until recently, was seeking fines of $10,000 for each of the 70 “illegal” pigs the department claimed the farmer had. DNR also sought a court order to destroy the pigs. On February 26, 2014 DNR reversed its position and suddenly the pigs the department sought to condemn were now legal.

The decision by Patrick Byrne, CEO of Overstock.com, to accept Bitcoin in exchange for its products has turned out to be a very savvy business decision for the online retailer. While the pace of Bitcoin sales has dropped off significantly from the tremendous $130k recorded in the first 24 hours, the sales have continued to come in. Only two months into the experiment, the retailer has now surpassed $1 million in BTC sales. More importantly, Mr. Byrne estimate 60% of these sales came from entirely new customers.
Without going in to great detail here, I have a health issue that is "ruining my life".
And now is causing loss of work.
I have discussed this in the past with several of our good friends here at the DP.

I am not used to nor am I comfortable asking for a hand out.

"Nice, eh? So, Turkey’s spy agency is arming and training “jihadist Tatars” and then shipping them off to Ukraine to fight in Uncle Sam’s NWO Sweepstakes? What a tangled web we weave. But, then, just about everyone knew that the so called Ukrainian “revolution” was a big, fat fraud engineered by foreign Intel agencies, subversive NGOs and voracious globalist oligarchs. Still, it makes it a lot easier when the main players leave their fingerprints on the murder weapon so you can figure out who’s who.
