Rick Steves was asked by worried local people from the U.N. if there was anything he could do (as a travel writer in the Seattle area) to stop the rush to war and saber rattling and help calm things down. His thought? Get me permission from Iran to enter as an American film crew, and I will produce an hour TV show on Iran. Pub Nov 9, 2009

Federal Judge Rules Against NDAA

Today, Judge Forrest permanently enjoined (prevented) enforcement of a portion of the National Defense Authorization Act, stating that the law “impermissibly impinges on guaranteed First Amendment rights and lacks sufficient definitional structure and protections to meet the requirements of due process.”

The NDAA is a federal law signed into law by President Obama on December 31, 2011 that authorizes the government to detain persons–without charge or trial–including U.S. citizens, who “substantially support” Al-Qaeda, the Taliban or their “associated forces.”

House Approves Sweeping, Warrantless Electronic Spy Powers

Wired - 09.12.12: The House on Wednesday reauthorized for five years broad electronic eavesdropping powers that legalized and expanded the George W. Bush administration’s warrantless wiretapping program.

The FISA Amendments Act, (.pdf) which is expiring at year’s end, allows the government to electronically eavesdrop on Americans’ phone calls and e-mails without a probable-cause warrant so long as one of the parties to the communication is believed outside the United States. The communications may be intercepted “to acquire foreign intelligence information.”

Jim Uprichard is Coming Home Today!

I just heard today that Jim Uprichard is being released from the hospital in Daytona Beach, & is flying home to Reno today!

His head injuries are still troubling him & he hasn't regained all of his memory or motor skills, but the hospital felt that he could be released. He also has a broken arm and facial fractures, but there's no reason to keep him in the hospital further.

We're hoping when he arrives, that the Reno VA Hospital can take over his care.

We all know the story about Maine and the duly elected delegates who were unseated. When we were in Tampa, we all stood together and supported Maine. That’s why we had several hundred people in the Maine walk out chanting, “As Maine Goes, So Goes The Nation!”

Let’s continue to support the liberty movement in Maine. Check out these awesome shirts the Maine delegates have put together to commemorate the duly elected delegates to the RNC in Tampa.

US Ambassador To Libya Killed In Benghazi Attack

By Hadeel Al Shalchi
BENGHAZI, Libya | Wed Sep 12, 2012

(Reuters) - The U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other embassy staff were killed in a rocket attack on their car, a Libyan official said, as they were rushed from a consular building stormed by militants denouncing a U.S.-made film insulting the Prophet Mohammad.

Gunmen had attacked and burned the U.S. consulate in the eastern city of Benghazi, a center of last year's uprising against Muammar Gaddafi, late on Tuesday evening, killing one U.S. consular official. The building was evacuated.

The Libyan official said the ambassador, Christopher Stevens, was being driven from the consulate building to a safer location when gunmen opened fire.

"The American ambassador and three staff members were killed when gunmen fired rockets at them," the official in Benghazi told Reuters.

Fed Launches QE3

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — The Federal Reserve, worried that improvement in the unemployment rate has stalled, announced a third, large purchase of bonds on Thursday in an effort to bring down long-term interest rates and spur growth.

The Fed said it would buy mortgage-backed securities at a pace of $40 billion per month.

The Federal Open Market Committee, which ended a two-day meeting on Thursday, said it was concerned that, without the action, “economic growth might not be strong enough to generate sustained improvement in labor market conditions.”Read text of statement.
