“What if the American people woke up, and understood that the official reasons for going to war are almost always based on lies and promoted by war propaganda in order to serve special interests?” – Congressman Ron Paul Nary a week seems to go by around this here site where we don’t mention the insidious indefinite detention provisions of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), signed under the cover of New Year’s Eve by President Obama without as much
In the alphabet soup of tyranny, the letters “N.D.A.A” have become infamous as one of the disturbing pieces of legislation passed in recent times. We’ve covered this bill, the provisions of which allow for the indefinite detention of American citizens without charge for the mere suspicion of “supporting terrorists”, and the attempts to combat it quite extensively here. While several states have attempted to nullify the NDAA at the local level, today a major development occurred in the battle against
“Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.” – Sun Tzu, “The Art of War“ Despite misleading headlines to the contrary, Ron Paul has not dropped out of the race for the Republican nomination, nor has the campaign for liberty come to an end. In fact, it is stronger than ever and merely changing gears as we shift into a new phase of the campaign. It’s true that the Ron Paul campaign has recently made the
“The Revolution is alive and well. Armies cannot stop us, and the government cannot stop us…the seeds have been planted. There is no way they can silence the freedom movement today” – Ron Paul, May 4th, 2012, University of California San Diego We know full well by now that The Revolution will not be televised, so I decided to brave Southern California Friday afternoon traffic and head down to UC San Diego to see a Ron Paul rally in person.
Last night I was driving home with a friend at a fairly late hour. I knew I had a headlight out when I left and made the remark in the car “I have a headlight out, so there’s about a 50% chance we’re getting pulled over. Sure enough, after pulling up right behind a police car at a stop light, the officer pulled into the right lane, slowed down, and then pulled back into my lane to pull me over.
Yes, I know, we keep harping on this darn NDAA thing. It’s easy to forget about a law that allows Americans to be snatched off the streets without being charged with any crime and held indefinitely by the military. It’s a law the effects of which are not easily visible to us. We don’t see people being snatched away by men in black off the street. Most people probably still haven’t heard of the NDAA and it’s indefinite detention provisions,
Remember SOPA and PIPA? No, they aren’t characters in “The Hunger Games”. Rather they were attempts by Congress to censor the internet earlier this year under the guise of intellectual property protection. Luckily, thanks in part to an internet protest day in which many websites including this one partook, SOPA and PIPA were scurried away under the cover of night. Of course, much like the mighty cockroach, the attempts of the government to censor the internet are persistent and certainly
If you’re reading this blog post right now, there are a few things I can safely assume about you. Firstly, you are probably very intelligent! It’s also likely that you get at least a decent portion of your news from the internet, whether it’s alternative news sources like The Huffington Post or The Drudge Report or various forms of social media such as Twitter and Facebook. This is commonplace for every advertiser’s favorite demographic, the beloved “18-34″‘s. It’s easy for
It’s a frantic Friday here at Lions of Liberty, what with our own Dom appearing on The New American Media’s “Agree to Disagree” this afternoon (will be posted here next week for those late to the dance). But in the meantime, we’d be remiss not to promote a major money bomb for the Ron Paul campaign, coming up ironically on what is usually known as the dreaded Tax Day, April 15. Since it falls on a Sunday this year we
