An open letter from Libertarian Party Chair Nicholas Sarwark to Sen. Rand Paul

For Immediate Release | Tuesday, November 25, 2014

Dear Sen. Paul,

We agree with you that Congress should obey the Constitution. We should never engage in foreign wars without a congressional declaration of war, a restraint on military action put in place by our Founding Fathers to ensure lawmakers never send our troops to war without deliberation.

But a constitutional war in the Middle East is just as bloody, destructive, and likely to incite terrorism as an unconstitutional war.

Our half-century of interventions in the Middle East have been a colossal failure. We have provided arms, military training, and subsidies to virtually every country in the region, inciting continual war and unrest. This has created a breeding ground for international terrorists that pose a real danger to our country and the world — one that would not have existed had we kept our noses out of the affairs of other countries.

U.S. military interventions have put our troops in harm's way, separated them needlessly from their families, and led to tens of thousands of American deaths and casualties — plus many more losses for innocent citizens of foreign countries.

Diabetes And Milk

Years ago, my husband and I saw a study published that indicated milk was probably a culprit in the onset of juvenile (type 1) diabetes. The study was soon scrubbed, and the insulin manufacturers continued with their highly profitable business. Similar studies can now be found:

(although the CDC continues to deny the link.)

Years ago, I had a lot of stomach problems. No need to get graphic, just know that any sort of issue that can occur in a digestive tract was going on in mine. I heard that changing to raw milk might help, so I tried it. I found IMMEDIATE relief from all symptoms. Hallelujah!

In recent years, a LOT of marketing has been done to promote "probiotic" foods. This morning, I see that yogurt is being touted as a preventative for adult onset (type 2) diabetes. "Probiotics" are beneficial micro-organisms that we pasteurize out of raw milk, then grow in a lab to put into yogurt.

Rand Paul on Ferguson: Politicians' Wars on Drugs and Poverty are to Blame

The latter half of this op-ed by Rand Paul sounds thrillingly like a nominating convention acceptance speech. As the only presumptive presidential candidate to even visit Ferguson, Rand has more cred when discussing this issue than any other Republican. And people are taking note.

Kevin Glass commented on Rand's article on TownHall.com, saying, "Sen. Rand Paul is perhaps the Republican politician most attempting to create positive change out of the tragedy that occurred in Ferguson, Missouri. He has consistently made the case that it is government dysfunction and mismanagement that created the backdrop for the sense of injustice in the St. Louis suburb."

In the search for culpability for the tragedy in Ferguson, I mostly blame politicians. Michael Brown’s death and the suffocation of Eric Garner in New York for selling untaxed cigarettes indicate something is wrong with criminal justice in America. The War on Drugs has created a culture of violence and put police in a nearly impossible situation. […]

Obama tells Ferguson not to resort to violence while he sends more troops, guns and bombs to Iraq...

and Afghanistan. Am I missing something here? Is this not a prime example of hypocrisy? The warmonger has no business telling the city of Ferguson to talk things out and begs them not resort to violence and destruction. "Nothing of benefit results from destructive acts," the president said.

What a charade!

The REAL Ferguson Conspiracy

The REAL Ferguson Conspiracy

HOW DID THIS CASE GET PICKED???

Everyone has been railroaded by the media into a box canyon. Yes, there are thousands of bloodthirsty killer-cops out there. No, Darren Wilson is not one of them and the verdict was correct.

We were all duped, the innocent Gentle Giant walking while black gunned down in cold blood....

We were roped in.

Then the other facts dribbled out: Brown was stoned. Brown robbed the cigar shop. Brown attacked the cop. Etc.

YOU ARE SHEEPLE! You should have given up the ghost a long time ago.

Meet Norton I - First Emperor of the United States

Scholars will debate till time merges with the singularity the merit and validity of presidential decrees, signing statements and executive orders. But no one can argue with the proclamations of an emperor - particularly when that emperor is Norton 1: First Emperor of the United States (& Protector of Mexico.)


the emperor frequently rode a bicycle when checking on the welfare of his subjects

Joshua Abraham Norton was born in England, raised in South Africa, and came to settle in San Francisco USA in 1849, where he lost his fortune, lost his mind, and finally declared himself 1st Emperor of the United States. The 2008 short film 'If I Were Emperor Of the United States...' (Emperor Norton's Decree) tells the story weller than I could:

Wow, I Feel So Accomplished!

Hey everyone, I'm so ecstatic right now. I have this natural high that you can't get from any drug. I'm just so proud of myself and only my DP Family can fully appreciate why.

I've been doing a few projects around the house lately to alleviate some stress and boredom. In October, I decided I was finally gonna start a garden and become a little more self-sufficient. I started collecting 5 Gal. buckets from work and picking up potting soil every week. I planted and I hoped, and it grew and grew.

Can Police be punished? Is it possible?

I've read about a mayor* who plainly admitted that he couldn't ever go after corrupt police. He confessed that if he did, the entire force would harass him and his family and other public workers related. E.g., follow them home from restaurants for DUI arrests, bust their kids for pot, invent prostitution charges etc.

The stiffest allowable punishment for a cop is probably a paid vacation.

In a case where a cop shoots somebody, the people who collect the evidence and investigate are co-workers of the cops. Maybe even his friends. And they are likely to protect their own fraternity. After all, if you are one of them, it might be your own investigation that needs help some day.

Once a case goes to court, it's the judicial system vs. the judicial system. At a practical level, they need the cops' support and participation like no other group.

They need a stream of criminals and convictions. Cops bring this. The court's income is at stake. Every organization's primary objective is to survive and grow. This is the court's mission, well above dispensing justice.

You hear about the growing prisoner population, but not so much about a growing court business. But if prisons are getting larger, so must the courts.

Buying a house...

Ok, so I would like to buy a house. What kind? How big? Who cares. Anything with a couple bedrooms is fine, but this is practically off topic.

My question deals with the economy. What I would like to know from the experienced minds on here is when you think the housing market may crash again. Tough to say yes, but I would like to hear you opinions.

Second question, what would be the difficulty of getting a home loan after the crash versus now and what sort of interest rates are we going to be seeing?

Israel – America’s Biggest Frenemy

The Jewish State in the Levant is a burden we shouldn’t have to bear
by Justin Raimondo, November 24, 2014

Today [November 24, 2014] is the deadline for the closing of a deal with Iran regarding their nuclear program. No one should be surprised that Israel is marking this deadline with a threat to attack Iran regardless of the outcome of the negotiations. As the Jerusalem Post is reporting on its front page:

"Israel has issued a stark, public warning to its allies with a clear argument: Current proposals guarantee the perpetuation of a crisis, backing Israel into a corner from which military force against Iran provides the only logical exit."

This is a lie, and is widely recognized as such: the Israelis don’t have the military capacity to take out all the Iranian nuclear sites without American assistance. Aside from that, however, they never attack those capable of hitting back in any significant way, so we can write off this latest threat as just so much kvetching.
