“We’ve got to handle media leaks first,” Alexander said in report by the Guardian. “I think we are going to make headway over the next few weeks on media leaks.”
I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, find that the actions and policies of persons -- including persons who have asserted governmental authority in the Crimean region without the authorization of the Government of Ukraine -- that undermine democratic processes and institutions in Ukraine; threaten its peace, security, stability, sovereignty, and territorial integrity; and contribute to the misappropriation of its assets, constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergen

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz says he disagrees with his tea party compatriot Rand Paul's foreign policy views.
The two would-be 2016 Republican presidential contenders have divided over how to best handle Russia's invasion of Crimea. Both were scheduled to appear on ABC's "This Week" to discuss foreign policy, but ABC correspondent Jon Karl said Paul backed out "at the last minute."
Hopefully this is true. Please post if you know more about this situation. This is the kind of brave action that is needed against these tyrants. Molon Labe!
"Tyler Jackson has emailed me an interesting story, soon to appear online (I'll link to it once it does)-- the gist is that the head of the Connecticut Peace Officers' Assn has released an open letter stating that the police will not "be party to the oppression of the people of the state by enforcing an unconstitutional law." So far 250 LEOs have cosigned the letter."

MRCTV spoke with attendees at a fifth anniversary Tea Party rally to see if they believe the so-called Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), currently underway in the Nation's Capital, still reflects conservative values.
Attendees told MRCTV that CPAC has strayed from conservatism by inviting groups like GOProud and American Atheists to exhibit, and by inviting more moderate speakers like Gov. Chris Christie and Sen. John Cornyn.
During the scene of big pro-Russian demonstrations last week, 'unidentified armed men' (U.S. mercenaries) were seen and filmed on the streets. A Russian Diplomat claimed some 300 hired guns had arrived in the eastern Ukraine 'flashpoint' city.
Not even a trove of new evidence will stop Darrell Issa from going after Lois Lerner’s testimony.

Why will you be voting in the next Presidential Primary?
I suppose that's an assumption on my part but for all practical purposes I think its safe to say that many of you will.
I will not be participating anymore. I don't see the point of wasting any time on negative outcomes when there is a much larger opportunity to embrace something much more exciting; the awakening of the human being.
Before you turn away, please keep reading and consider my perspective on things.
When I was young and being indoctrinated into Americanism I was told voting is an honor and a privilege. Not voting is an insult to those who serve in our military, who have served — and died — to protect our freedoms and our way of life. It is my civic duty and responsibility as a United States citizen.
Really? Perhaps back when we lived in a more romantic time.
