Is there legal recourse when NSA perverts spy on you naked?

Do you want the NSA looking at your naked body? Americans are fed up with the NSA–but are they ready to do something about it? Have we reached a tipping point? What legal grounds do we have against federal workers who pass around nude pics of us and our loved ones?


Is it government’s job to tell you what we should eat, drink, smoke and think? Shopping carts with Michele Obama telling food stamp recipients what healthy foods to buy? Is this for real? Should government control what they–or you–buy?

Can you be a conservative without being a libertarian? Establishment Republicans are attacking libertarian conservatives like Rand Paul and Justin Amash every chance they get. But can you even be a conservative without, to some degree, being a libertarian? We take a hard look at the definition of conservatism and it’s future.

Cracking the Code on Malaysia 370: The Ping is the Thing….

ping-circle

I can’t take credit for actually cracking the code on this one – that belongs to American Everyman, possessor of the most acute “truthdar” known to man…but even with him laying it out, it took me a few passes to fully comprehend the smoking gun he found, so I thought I would try to explain it in a nutshell….

Here’s what happened in the initial moments of the crisis of Malaysia flight 370…

At 1:07am on March 8, a periodic scheduled ACARS-with-data transmission was sent by flight 370. Another ACARS-with-data was not expected until 1:37.
At 1:19am, one of the pilots radio communicated “Alright, good night.”
At 1:21am, flight 370 disappeared from radar after briefly registering a drop in altitude from 35,000 to 0 feet.

Crimea & Self-Determination: The First Principle of the Law of Nations

comp for of

While living in Los Angeles in 2008, I had an epiphany. I saw a Soviet-style poster of Barack Obama’s face and wondered what red-blooded American would be attracted to such ominous imagery. The face wasn’t bad, it was the Andy-Warhol-meets-Vladimir-Lenin color-blocking that freaked me out. Around the same time, George W. Bush had signed a law that would, incrementally of course, ban the warm glow of the Edison lightbulb. For me, this convergence of events was the tipping point. I realized, the American Experiment had failed. Limited government was a utopian fantasy. No piece of paper, no matter how brilliantly conceived or masterfully written, could defend itself against a central monopoly on the use of force. No matter how limited at its inception, the power would be nurtured and abused until it converted all useful social power into state power.

Once I had this revelation, I gave up hope. I concluded that man was destined for serfdom, perhaps camouflaged as a combination of taxes and regulations, but unjust limits on personal and economic freedom and the theft of the fruits of one’s labor were inevitable in any organized society.

Manufacturing Advocacy

waroftheworlds-vi

Edward Herman and Noam Chomsky used the phrase “manufacturing consent” to describe how the media acts to garner the consent of the governed for policies and actions to which an objectively informed constituency might not consent. This builds on the premise by the great and precocious Étienne de La Boétie that government always requires the consent of the governed. The media, Herman & Chomsky’s theory holds, manufactures this consent.

Recently, however, I have noticed that the phenomenon goes beyond manufacturing consent and now qualifies as manufacturing advocacy. I have noticed that when I try to tell people one-on-one about the truth behind the propaganda, (most recently, for example, with regard to the Ukraine), the majority of people don’t evaluate the new evidence they had been previously shielded from, they actually argue against it! The responses differ between left and right, but the result is the same: irrationally advocating the unprincipled behavior of our agents in government against our own interests as tax-paying citizens who value liberty and justice for all.

Here are two typical responses I got recently when I offered my well-documented claim that Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland plotted with US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt to install a new government in Ukraine weeks BEFORE the coup.

Rep. Mark Sanford: “There is a bigger libertarian footprint” than ever in Congress

Check out the original post from Rare.us

Kurt Wallace: Some argue taxing the American people is necessary for the common good of society, and thus politicians debate on how much lower or higher we should be taxed. Libertarians argue that taxation of individual wages is taking our property from our labor. Therefore, it is what they term as government aggression, and thus services should be privatized. But what happens once the government has our money? Since the government does acquire our money, why is the conversation usually more focused on taxing us, and isn’t focused on government agencies and politicians’ spending habits? Does government spending behavior affect governments’ taxing behavior? And here to discuss is Congressman Mark Sanford of South Carolina. Congressman Sanford, thanks for being with us today on Rare.

Philip Seymour Hoffman vs William Stewart Halsted

article-0-16B89E80000005DC-412_634x462

Two of my brothers were hardcore heroin addicts. One quit, the other died. As a matter of fact, off the top of my head, I could name a half a dozen people in my family circle who died from drug abuse. Even short of risk of death, I think getting high every day, whether from illegal drugs, prescription meds or alcohol, is way more trouble than it’s worth, and I have seen people I loved degenerate into something less than fully human after transmogrifying into junkies.

For these reasons, it is understandable why I don’t take lightly my adherence to the libertarian principle that people are inherently free to abuse themselves, but I do believe neither the state nor the citizenry have the right to forcibly prevent an individual from using drugs for recreational purposes.

Niger Innis: Alan Grayson Prostitutes African-American history

NigerInnis

Kurt Wallace recently sat down with civil rights leader Niger Innis to talk about Democrat Representative Alan Grayson’s racist comments about the tea party, where he compared them to the Ku Klux Klan.

Representative Alan Grayson: This shutdown ended up costing America $24 billion, that’s almost $100 for every man, woman and child in this country. Frankly, they want their money back, and they want the Tea Party out of their lives. At this point, the Tea Party is no more popular than the Klan.

Kurt Wallace for Rare: Alan Grayson sent out a fundraising letter with an image of a burning cross with the words “Tea Party” engulfed in flames, comparing them to the KKK. He also tweeted out “The Tea Party: ‘No more popular than the Klan.’” He continues to stand by his assessment, saying “The Tea Party candidates, including my opponent in the last election, have endorsed forcing Hispanics to speak English.” He added, “One could go on and on, because there is an overwhelming evidence that the Tea Party is the home of bigotry and discrimination in America today, just as the KKK was for an earlier generation. If the shoe fits, wear it.” What is the Tea Party? Is the Tea Party actually made up of people who are bigots, and why are they getting attacked as being like the KKK? Here to discuss, Niger Innis, currently serving as the National Spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality Core and is the chief strategist for the TeaParty.net, and Niger, thank you for joining us today.
