Looking Beyond Election Day: The Issues That Threaten to Derail the Nation posted 11/02/2012, 5:04 AM (The Rutherford Institute)
[Category: Commentary]
While it may be months before the devastation wrought by Hurricane Sandy can be fully resolved, Americans cannot afford to lose sight of the very real and pressing issues that threaten to derail the nation.

What follows is an overview of the major issues that both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, despite their respective billion dollar war chests, have failed to mention during their extensive campaign trail stumping and televised debates. These are issues that aren’t going away anytime soon. Indeed, unless we take a proactive approach to the problems that loom large before us, especially as they relate to America’s ongoing transformation into a police state, we may find that they are here to stay.

Militarized police. Thanks to federal grant programs allowing the Pentagon to transfer surplus military supplies and weapons to local law enforcement agencies without charge, police forces are being transformed from peace officers to heavily armed extensions of the military, complete with jackboots, helmets, shields, batons, pepper-spray, stun guns, assault rifles, body armor, miniature tanks and weaponized drones. As Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, observed, “Today, 17,000 local police forces are equipped with such military equipment as Blackhawk helicopters, machine guns, grenade launchers, battering rams, explosives, chemical sprays, body armor, night vision, rappelling gear and armored vehicles. Some have tanks.” In other words, what we are witnessing is an inversion of the police-civilian relationship.

Drones. As mandated by Congress, there will be 30,000 drones crisscrossing the skies of America by 2020, all part of an industry that could be worth as much as $30 billion per year. These machines will be able to record all activities, using video feeds, heat sensors and radar. Some drones are capable of hijacking Wi-Fi networks and intercepting electronic comm

Obama and Civil Liberties: The Prospect of Four More Years posted 11/02/2012, 5:04 AM (Anthony Gregory)
[Category: Commentary]
Most voters prioritize the economy and far behind that comes foreign policy, where both major presidential candidates offer more of the same. One can make arguments that on these important issues, one side is worse than the other. But another important set of issues, those of civil liberties, has gotten much less attention than jobs, health care, or war. This is unfortunate because precedents set today on questions of law enforcement, presidential power, detention policy, surveillance, and the r... (more)

Behind the Scenes: Mitt Romney speaks about Mormon faith posted 11/02/2012, 5:04 AM (InformationLiberation)
[Category: Politics/Corruption]

This is an interesting clip of Romney acting like an actual human-being arguing with a radio host during a break about his Mormonism. It doesn't seem like he's fully aware he is being recorded, regardless he actually talks about his Mormon beliefs, which is a big "no-no," in that a politician expressing anything but the most popular "acceptable" politically correct vi

Editor's Note: Your editor caught up with Doug Casey backstage at the New Orleans Investment Conference, where we both had just given talks.

L: Doug, I know you're no fan of either presidential candidate – a pox on both their houses – but we got more questions today about what would happen to our investments if one or the other would win than just about anything else. So, what do you think – does it matter? Should we play things diff

[Category: Big Brother/Orwellian]
A federal court in Illinois has handed down the largest ever damages award in a BitTorrent case. In a default judgment defendant Kywan Fisher from Hampton, Virginia is ordered to pay $1,500,000 to adult entertainment company Flava Works for sharing 10 of their movies on BitTorrent. The huge total was reached through penalties of $150,000 per movie, the maximum possible statutory damages under U.S. copyright law. It’s expected that the verdict will be used to motivate other BitTorrent defendants ... (more)

Price Gouging Laws Are Causing Gas Shortages posted 11/02/2012, 5:03 AM (James Ostrowski)
[Category: Economy]
Contrary to what politicians such as Romney, Gary Johnson, Obama and Chris Christie would say, it's during emergencies when you need liberty the most. (Thanks to "Baldy" Harper for that insight.) Here's an object lesson. New York has a silly law making it illegal to raise prices during an emergency. It's almost beside the point that the law itself is unintelligible.

Dr. Shaygan's Saga: Prosecutorial Misconduct in the War on Pain Docs posted 11/02/2012, 5:01 AM (StoptheDrugWar.org)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
In what could become an historic case, a Florida doctor acquitted of drug dealing charges over his prescribing practices is asking the US Supreme Court to reinstate a $600,000 award made to him by a lower court after federal prosecutors were found to have engaged in misconduct that was "vexatious, frivolous, or in bad faith." That language comes from the Hyde Amendment, enacted in 1997, which gives federal judges the power to force the government to pay attorney's fees to acquitted defendants if... (more)

West Virginia: Traffic Stop Cannot Be Used to Justify Home Search posted 11/02/2012, 5:00 AM (TheNewspaper)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
Police may not use a traffic stop as a pretext to enter a man's "crib," a federal judge ruled last week. US District Judge Irene M. Keeley last week adopted the findings of a federal magistrate overturning the evidence a Morgantown police officer obtained by following a West Virginia man, Samad Harvey, into his home. Harvey had been one of three black men in a silver Jaguar stopped by Officer Kenneth Walker Murphy on University Avenue at around 9:45pm on December 16, 2010.

ATLANTA — A Channel 2 Action News investigation found nearly 100 cases of local officers shooting dogs within the past two years.

The investigation looked into the heartbreaking circumstances when a police officer kills a family pet -- probably one of the most difficult scenarios for a pet owner and for police.

Nearly two years after Basil was shot and killed in an empty lot by Fulton County Marshals, Elizabeth and Carey Cullifer said they still feel every bit of th
