Thank You, Thomas Massie (Demands roll call vote on "Global Food Security Act")
Post Date: 2016-04-19 17:40:55 by hondo68
Yesterday, the House passed H.R. 1567, the "Global Food Security Act." As I wrote earlier this week, H.R. 1567 "....requires the President to coordinate the development and implementation of a comprehensive strategy to accomplish the objectives of promoting global food security, resilience, and nutrition consistent with national food security investment plans." It also authorized the federal government to spend one billion dollars on foreign aid programs, which is chump change in DC, but as Senator Everett Dirksen once said, "A billion here, a billion there, and pretty soon you're talking about real money." This is on top of the billions the U.S. Government ...
THE TRUTH ABOUT THE OKLAHOMA CITY BOMBING
Post Date: 2016-04-19 08:47:48 by Deckard
On April 19, 1993, in Waco Texas the U.S. government incinerated 86 of it's own citizens for the crime of exercising their constitutional rights of freedom of religion, right to bear arms, and freedom of speech. Timothy McVeigh, who had been at the scene to witness some of the events during the preceding 50 day standoff with U.S. troops, witnessed the inferno erupt on television. Two years later to the day, on April 19, 1995, the Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City was destroyed by a bomb blast. McVeigh was arrested a short time later after being pulled over for driving a car with no license plate and possession of an unlicensed firearm. Several days later he was identified by ...
Value Life Like We Do! Or Else!
Post Date: 2016-04-19 05:27:15 by Deckard
I overheard a somewhat interesting if disturbing conversation this weekend. A career U.S. military man was telling these folks at a coffee shop that we need to go into the Middle East and mean business this time. As in, you know, kill them all and let Allah sort them out. Now, Ive heard all of this before so I wasnt especially astonished. This is standard-issue manure that gets doled out via government propaganda outlets we call talk radio and television talk shows. But what he said next is what I found astonishing: They dont value life like we do! What?! Excuse me, but, what?! Right, they dont ...
Exclusive — RNC Challenges ‘.01 Percent’ Hillary: Pay the Extra $5 Million in Taxes Your Own Plan Would Require
Post Date: 2016-04-18 08:51:35 by cranky
Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman Reince Priebus will, on Monday, send a letter to former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clintons personal tax attorney Rorrie Gregorio, asking her if Clinton has paid the tax rates she expects billionaires and millionaires to pay or if shes not leading by example. Under Hillary Clintons own tax plan, those making more than $5 million a year would be required to pay a surcharge to the treasury. In doing the math, since 2001, the Clintons would need to pay nearly $5 million more in taxes to comply with their own proposal. Clintons campaign tells Breitbart News shell pay that much just as soon as the RNC agrees ...
How US covered up Saudi role in 9/11
Post Date: 2016-04-17 20:31:56 by cranky
In its report on the still-censored 28 pages implicating the Saudi government in 9/11, 60 Minutes last weekend said the Saudi role in the attacks has been soft-pedaled to protect Americas delicate alliance with the oil-rich kingdom. Thats quite an understatement. Actually, the kingdoms involvement was deliberately covered up at the highest levels of our government. And the coverup goes beyond locking up 28 pages of the Saudi report in a vault in the US Capitol basement. Investigations were throttled. Co-conspirators were let off the hook. Case agents Ive interviewed at the Joint Terrorism Task Forces in Washington and San ...
I pay ... I pay .... I pay and what do I get?
Post Date: 2016-04-17 11:54:04 by buckeroo
I am working on my 2015 federal taxes this weekend. I am in a bit of a pickle since I owe the US Government some money; actually, I owe the US Government quite a bit of money. What do I get out of the deal of being a bonafide citizen? I pay and I pay and I pay FOR NOTHING WORTHWHILE from this useless government other than affording the President his Hawaii vacations and the chief Wookie's little garden plot besides giving illegals all they want. Not one presidential candidate addresses my problem with the issue of paying more and getting less. In the private sector we fire people for less.
The Last Full Measure of Misery: When Will Prohibition Finally End?
Post Date: 2016-04-16 17:31:24 by Deckard
Our safety and happiness lie in obedience to law by every man, woman, and child, pontificated Attorney General Harry Micajah Daugherty in his keynote address to the 1921 annual conference of the American Bar Association in Cincinnati. His homily on the supposed virtue of submission to the state was offered in the service of the crusade to suppress the age-long evil of the liquor traffic, a holy errand to which the assembled legal luminaries were firmly committed, at least while they were on the clock. After hours, Edward Behr wryly observed in his book Prohibition: Thirteen Years that Changed America, many of those attending the meeting were ...
Bernie Earned Less in Year than Hillary Made in Single Speech
Post Date: 2016-04-15 16:48:19 by cranky
Bernie Sanders reportedly earned just over $200,000 in 2014. That same year, Hillary Clinton, Sanders's top Democratic rival, gave about 45 paid speeches, many of which paid her more in a single hour than Sanders made the entire year. The Washington Post reports on Sanders's income. "The senator from Vermont reported income of just more than $200,000 on his 2014 returns, according to the first few pages of his federal and Vermont filings, which were shared with The Washington Post back in June. On Friday, the couple is planning to release the rest of the returns, including attached schedules," writes the paper. Bernie Sanders reportedly earned just over $200,000 in 2014. ...
The 50-Year Disaster of Government Trains, Buses, and Streetcars
Post Date: 2016-04-15 04:26:30 by hondo68
Today, Less than 2% of Trips Use Transit Ronald Reagan once quipped that "government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it." There, in a nutshell, you have a short history of mass transit in America. CEI's Marc Scribner explains, Following decades of excessive local government fare regulation that led to a terminal decline in the private mass transit industry, government began taking over the responsibilities performed by now-bankrupt private mass transit companies following the Urban Mass Transportation Act of 1964. Over the span of a decade, the ...
Another Sexual Assault in Service of the Drug War
Post Date: 2016-04-14 09:13:39 by Deckard
Yet another case of a driver sexually assaulted in the name of the war on drugs dramatically illustrates the dangerously broad power that police officers have to mess with motorists. According to a lawsuit filed last September, described in a February 3 ruling by federal judge in Pennsylvania, Kimberlee Carbone was pulled over by New Castle police in November 2013, ostensibly because "she did not apply her turn signal at least 100 feet before the intersection." She was then subjected to a degrading five-hour ordeal that included a bogus DUI arrest, a search of her person and her car, a strip search at the county jail, and multiple probings of her anus and vagina ...
Clinton Email Server Greatest Intel Disaster in History

Clinton Email Server Greatest Intel Disaster in History-Scott Uehlinger By Greg Hunter On April 13, 2016 In Political Analysis By Greg Hunters USAWatchdog.com Former frontline CIA Officer Scott Uehlinger says Hillary Clinton clearly broke the law with her private unprotected server. Uehlinger explains, What the Clintons rely on is most Americans dont really understand the security procedures. So, they can throw up a lot of smoke and mirrors that confuses people and makes them think that this was not so much of a problem. But people in the military and people in the intelligence community understand this better, and certainly it is even worse than it appears. . . . The ...
All Government Is Evil and Laughable (Even the local gangs)
Post Date: 2016-04-12 07:50:30 by Deckard
Hey, did you know in Texas, its illegal to possess an Erlenmeyer flask without a permit from the government? Whats an Erlenmeyer flask? Its that glass conical-bottom, narrow-necked flask you see in all the science labs. Remember high school science class? So why is a piece of science lab equipment illegal without das paperwerken from das government? Because its allegedly used to manufacture illegal drugs. Well, gosh, so are a lot of things! But this is a thing I have mentioned before here and now would like to expand on: Local government is often the most tyrannical because they can pass laws faster than the federal government can spend a billion dollars.

An infuriating video of a man being harassed by San Diego police was uploaded to Youtube highlighting the asinine persecution doled out by those sworn to protect.In this short video, a man was simply walking down the sidewalk when he noticed multiple cop cars stalking him. So, he began to film them.The cops had apparently targetted him, and there was nothing that he was going to do to prevent his harassment. While he was filming the police cruisers, the man merely took one step off of the curb and the officers used this as their trigger to attack.All of the sudden multiple units pull up and swarm this man who had done nothing wrong.Did I do anything wrong? asks the ...
OK Sheriff, Deputy Indicted For Asset Forfeiture Extortion
Post Date: 2016-04-08 23:22:54 by Deckard
An Oklahoma sheriff has suspended himself after he and deputy were indicted and jailed last week on felony extortion and bribery charges stemming from a civil asset forfeiture seizure.A grand jury said last Thursday that Wagoner County Sheriff Bob Colbert and Deputy Jeffrey Gragg conspired to get a motorist and his passenger to hand over $10,000 in exchange for not pursuing drug charges against them during a Dec. 2014 traffic stop.Civil asset forfeiture allows cops to seize any property they allege is involved in a crime even if the owners are not even arrested or convicted of anything.Property owners are then left having to prove a negative, reversing the ...

GOP Establishment Money Funding Mark Levin, Glenn Beck, Erick Erickson To Attack Trump
Post Date: 2016-04-08 15:13:17 by Roscoe
The next time you hear Mark Levin on the radio, or watch Glenn Beck on TV, or read Erick Erickson, RedState.com on the Internet, you might just ask yourself who is paying for the message? And why is it so stridently anti-Trump? Dont fool yourself. Theyre doing it for the money. As the spearhead of the Dump Trump movement, the same GOP establishment big- dollar donors and PACS that are pushing House Speaker Paul Ryan as a dark-horse presidential candidate, despite the big-government omnibus-budget deals Ryan reached last year with President Obama, are funding Mark Levin, Erick Erickson, and Glenn Beck, to promote Sen. Ted Cruz. The Conservative Tree House blog ...

Post Date: 2016-04-08 09:16:59 by Deckard
Grand Rapids, MI In a case of mistaken identity, an undercover cop and an FBI agent beat an innocent college student unconscious because he matched a vague description of a different suspect. After a jury acquitted him of felony charges, the young man recently filed a lawsuit against the officers for using unreasonable force and ordering witnesses to delete footage taken of the incident. On July 18, 2014, Grand Valley State University student James King was walking to his job when FBI Special Agent Douglas Brownback and Grand Rapids Police Detective Todd Allen approached him asking for identification. After King told them that he didnt have his ID with him, the undercover cops ...
You Probably Spend More On Taxes Than Food, Clothing, and Housing Combined
Post Date: 2016-04-07 11:09:30 by Deckard
By Joshua Krause Are you familiar with Tax Freedom Day? No, it isnt the day after April 15th. According to the Tax Foundation, its the day of the year when the average American has earned enough money to pay for all the income taxes they will accumulate throughout the rest of the year. In 2016, that day will fall on April 24th. Or put another way, if you work during all 52 weeks of the year, more than 16 weeks of your labor are going to the IRS. According to the Tax Foundations annual report, Americans are going to spend a total of $5 trillion on federal, state, and local taxes this year, which amounts to about 31% of our nations income. Thats almost $1 ...
Dems on FEC target conservatives, vote to punish maker of anti-Obama movie
Post Date: 2016-04-07 09:41:58 by cranky
The three Democrats on the Federal Election Commission, in their latest and boldest move to regulate conservative media, voted in unison to punish a movie maker critical of President Obama after he distributed for free his latest work, Dreams of My Real Father: A Story of Reds and Deception. Filmmaker Joel Gilbert, owner of Highway 61 films, has produced several independent politically-themed movies and sent Dreams out to millions of voters in key swing states prior to the 2012 election. While he acted on his own, and with no ties to political groups or parties, an FEC complaint was filed claiming he violated reporting rules, prompting him to seek the standard media ...
Americans spend more on taxes than food, clothing, housing combined

A tax advocacy group on Wednesday revealed that Americans spend more on taxes than their whole budget for food, clothing and housing. The Tax Foundation, in its annual report on when the nation as a whole has earned enough to pay its taxes, announced the date as April 24. "Tax Freedom Day gives us a vivid representation of how much federal, state, and local tax revenue is collected each year to pay for government goods and services," said Tax Foundation Analyst Scott Greenberg. "Arguments can be made that the tax bill is too high or too low, but in order to have an honest discussion, it's important for taxpayers to understand the cost of government. Tax Freedom Day ...
The Big Short - Trailer
Post Date: 2016-04-06 01:24:35 by Pinguinite
I watched this movie last night. I wasn't sure I'd actually do more than see the beginning but it grabs you. It goes beyond outlining the collapse of the housing market in 07-08 by illustrating the complete failure of the PTB's to do the right thing in preventing it. From the big banks having monopolizing control, the SEC with compromised personnel, self-serving fund managers, real estate agents rewarded more for selling sub-prime mortgages and even the ratings agencies all had a financial motive not only to look the other way in the years leading up to the crash, but even continue to do so as the crash was unfolding. Most ominous is the final note of the movie that the same ...
Florida boldly moves to require criminal charges before the government can seize your property [signed today!]
Post Date: 2016-04-04 16:26:30 by Tooconservative
Taylor already wrote about the reinstatement of the federal civil asset forfeiture sharing program, which was bad news. The practice of law enforcement using the property of citizens who have not been convicted of a crime as a revenue source is a scourge which needs to be abolished in this country. Fortunately, much of the burden of making this needed change falls on the states and Florida has taken a step in the right direction. (Reason) Some great news in asset forfeiture reform is coming out of Florida. S.B. 1044, approved by the legislature earlier in the month, was signed into law today by Gov. Rick Scott. The big deal with this particular reform is that, in most cases, Florida police ...
