Politics in the News

Whether you are a libertarian, conservative, NRA member or simply a citizen concerned with today's political climate, you will find news items of interest and relevance on Reliable Answers "Politics in the News."

What message are our legislators sending to voters, when they publicly admit they haven't done their job? How many bills are passed each year that policymakers haven't even bothered to read? This is disgraceful. This is called dereliction of duties and we must demand a stop to this practice.

This is without a doubt the most vile and disgusting thing I have every seen in my life. There is nothing human in the way these barbaric animals think or behave.

This is the enemy of America that Barack Hussein Obama and John McCain support in our names. These are Hellish Demons, who defy description. We Must Defeat Them.....We Cannot Permit What Is Supposedly Our Government To Help Them in Their Murder of Innocent Children. You hear their raves of "Allahu Akbar" in this insane fervor they are worked into.

In what is probably the most educating 30 seconds you will spend today, a man drives by an accident scene in Kentucky with his camera recording, only to be ordered to turn his camera off.

The driver immediately tells him, "no, fuck you," and keeps driving. The video was posted today on Live Leak with the following description: "I was on my way home from work and saw a pickup upside down and decided to film it as we passed. No one was hurt in this accident. Right to film in public and freedom of speech are both used in this video lol." While it's not the most courteous response, it's even more discourteous to use a position of authority to bark an unlawful order.

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.

Even as the United States government continues to push for the use of more chemically-intensive and corporate-dominated farming methods such as GMOs and monoculture-based crops, the United Nations is once against sounding the alarm.

According to the new UN report, major changes are needed in our food, agriculture and trade systems, with a shift toward local small-scale farmers and food systems recommended. Diversity of farms, reducing the use of fertilizer and other changes are desperately needed according to the report, which was highlighted in this article from the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy.

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.
