"If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter."
                                             -- George Washington

"If we stuck to the Constitution as written, we would have: no federal meddling in our schools; no Federal Reserve; no U.S. membership in the UN; no gun control; and no foreign aid.

We would have no welfare for big corporations, or the "poor"; no American troops in 100 foreign countries; no NAFTA, GATT, or "fast-track"; no arrogant federal judges usurping states rights; no attacks on private property; no income tax. We could get rid of most of the cabinet departments, most of the agencies, and most of the budget."

Liberty Defined: 50 Essential Issues That Affect Our Freedom by Dr. Ron Paul

"Freedom is not defined by safety. Freedom is defined by the ability of citizens to live without government interference. Government cannot create a world without risks, nor would we really wish to live in such a fictional place. Only a totalitarian society would even claim absolute safety as a worthy ideal, because it would require total state control over its citizens' lives. Liberty has meaning only if we still believe in it when terrible things happen and a false government security blanket beckons."
                                             -- Congressman Ron Paul

End the Fed by Dr. Ron Paul

"The government is best which governs least."
                                                       -- Thomas Jefferson

Our latest Homeland Insecurity item of the day comes from a new DHS report warning of the threat of jihadi infiltration of nuclear, utility, and other infrastructure facilities.

It's one of those routine "Hey, there's no specific threat we can speak of publicly, but we want you to know we're worrying about it" releases. Last March, I noted the South Jersey Jihadist and al Qaeda-linked radical Sharif Mobley - who held positions at several nuclear power plants in Salem County, NJ.

Forgive the racially offensive headline as it should inflame and anger the reader and cause an outcry for the crucifixion of the reporter but the fury should instead be directed at two other parties; a West Texas juror who uttered this phrase and the U.S. federal court who sentenced a Jamaican National musician to thirty years in prison for possessing marijuana seeds. For sixteen years, his story has gone unreported. And you may remember Federal District Judge Robert Junell who vacated Yolanda Madden's sentence after a notorious NeverGetBusted investigation labeled, "KopBusters," caught the Odessa Police Department raiding a trap house set by this reporter and his team of investigative journalists. Keep reading.

For nine months, this Utah ISP had a little black box in the corner, courtesy of the NSA. Its owner tells his story.

When people say the feds are monitoring what people are doing online, what does that mean? How does that work? When, and where, does it start? Pete Ashdown, CEO of XMission, an internet service provider in Utah, knows. He received a Foreign Intelligence Service Act (FISA) warrant in 2010 mandating he let the feds monitor one of his customers, through his facility. He also received a broad gag order. In his own words: The first thing I do when I get a law enforcement request is look for a court signature on it. Then I pass it to my attorneys and say, "Is this legitimate? Does this qualify as a warrant?" If it does, then we will respond to it. We are very up front that we respond to warrants. If it isn't, then the attorneys write back: "We don't believe it is in jurisdiction or is constitutional. We are happy to respond if you do get an FBI request in jurisdiction or you get a court order to do so."

Many Republicans are expressing disdain at the thought of another four years of President Obama. Some have started blaming Ron Paul and the Libertarians. Others blame the establishment Republican Party for nominating Mitt Romney.

The fact remains, the Tea Party became angry on Tuesday. Ron Paul lost the nomination at the Republican convention although many of his supporters say that the establishment Republican Party cheated. Many Ron Paul supporters refused to compromise and were vocal about the fact that they would not vote for Mitt Romney. After the close popular vote count, some Republicans have said that Ron Paul supporters cost the Republicans the election. "But as the old saying Goes. United we Stand. Divided we fall. All Paul did by continuing to run is divide the vote and in an election this close the few votes that went Paul's way kept Obama in office," said Don Wiggins on The Angel Clark Show fan page on Facebook. Little does Don know, many Ron Paul supporters would have loved to have cost the Republicans the election considering they feel the party betrayed them at the Republican National Convention. Regardless, it may never be able to be proved that Ron Paul supporters actually cost the Republican Party the election as many wrote Ron Paul in, and many states do not count write-ins.

SWAT teams raiding poker games and trying to stop underage drinking? Overwhelming paramilitary force is on the rise

Sal Culosi is dead because he bet on a football game - but it wasn't a bookie or a loan shark who killed him. His local government killed him, ostensibly to protect him from his gambling habit. Several months earlier at a local bar, Fairfax County, Virginia, detective David Baucum overheard the thirty-eight-year-old optometrist and some friends wagering on a college football game. "To Sal, betting a few bills on the Redskins was a stress reliever, done among friends," a friend of Culosi's told me shortly after his death. "None of us single, successful professionals ever thought that betting fifty bucks or so on the Virginia-Virginia Tech football game was a crime worthy of investigation." Baucum apparently did. After overhearing the men wagering, Baucum befriended Culosi as a cover to begin investigating him. During the next several months, he talked Culosi into raising the stakes of what Culosi thought were just more fun wagers between friends to make watching sports more interesting. Eventually Culosi and Baucum bet more than $2,000 in a single day. Under Virginia law, that was enough for police to charge Culosi with running a gambling operation. And that's when they brought in the SWAT team.

David Boaz makes a fantastic cultural case against federal funding of PBS, an organization that consistently confuses its ability to cater to a niche bourgeoisie audience with an unquestionable moral crusade on behalf of all.

June 6, 2012, marked a milestone in the further advancement of the Internet: World IPv6 Launch Day. It was by no means an Earth-shattering event or a "flag day" where everyone switched over to IPv6 completely.

What actually happened was that content providers enabled AAAA DNS records for their websites and other applications, and ISPs committed to providing IPv6 connectivity to at least 1% of their customers by this date. What's all of this fuss about the IPv6 transition about? The simplest way to explain the situation is that the current Internet can stay working as it does, using IPv4 addresses, forever ... if we're okay with it not growing any more.

Earlier this evening my husband, Chris Loesch, had his Twitter account suspended.

There have been stories going around of conservatives getting suspended from Twitter over innocuous things while accounts like @KillZimmerman (an account which threatened to kill George Zimmerman) and other such accounts were left active for weeks. After a user remarked about me being raped and murdered, Chris and others defended me.

NBC pays billions of dollars to give us coverage about the Olympics instead of actually showing, you know, the Olympics. #nbcfail

NBC has united the world...in scorn, contempt, and mockery of its gaffe-plagued, stone-age Olympics coverage. Cutting the tribute to the 7/7 London Islamic terror victims from the network's opening ceremonies coverage was just the tip of the iceberg. Yesterday, the #NBCFail hashtag erupted worldwide and showed no signs of let-up. Ridiculous tape delays, news/programming spoilers, arrogant tweets from former NPR executive-turned-NBC chief digital officer Vivian Schiller, geographic errors, and streaming woes have earned the peacock network global social media mockery.
