In a stunning move, the House of Representatives on Tuesday approved an amendment to the Make America Secure and Prosperous Appropriations Act that will roll back Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s expansion of asset forfeiture.

WASHINGTON — When Donald J. Trump set his sights on the presidency in the 2000 election, he pursued the nomination of the Reform Party, a home for disenchanted independents. “The Republican Party has just moved too far to the extreme right,” he explained. “The Democrats are too far to the left.”

“The Fourth Amendment was designed to stand between us and arbitrary governmental authority. For all practical purposes, that shield has been shattered, leaving our liberty and personal integrity subject to the whim of every cop on the beat, trooper on the highway and jail official.”—Herman Schwartz, The Nation

Our freedoms—especially the Fourth Amendment—are being choked out by a prevailing view among government bureaucrats that they have the right to search, seize, strip, scan, shoot, spy on, probe, pat down, taser, and arrest any individual at any time and for the slightest provocation.

Two Bundy Ranch defendants to face third trial

Jerome Corsi | Infowars.com – SEPTEMBER 5, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Recent developments have caused Trump supporters to ask why Attorney General Jeff Sessions is allowing Obama holdovers in the Department of Justice to continue prosecuting Bundy ranch cases, despite continuing set-backs.

The American Legion finally calls for a congressional inquiry
Philip Giraldi • September 5, 2017

On June 8th 1967 the United States Navy intelligence ship the U.S.S. Liberty was attacked in international waters by aircraft and vessels belonging to Israel. Thirty-four sailors, Marines and civilians were killed in the attack. The deliberate Israeli air and sea onslaught sought to sink the clearly identified intelligence gathering ship and kill all its crew. It was in truth the worst attack ever carried out on a U.S. Naval vessel in peace time. In addition to the death toll, 171 more of the crew were wounded in the two-hour assault, which was clearly intended to destroy the intelligence gathering vessel operating in international waters collecting information on the ongoing fighting between Israel and its Arab neighbors. The Israelis, whose planes had their Star of David markings covered up so Egypt could be blamed, attacked the ship repeatedly from the air and with torpedo boats from the sea. When one Israeli pilot hesitated, refusing to attack what was clearly an American ship, he was instructed to proceed anyway.

When ‘aid’ doesn’t help…

Ron Paul | Infowars.com – SEPTEMBER 4, 2017

Texans affected by Hurricane Harvey, including my family and me, appreciate the outpouring of support from across the country. President Donald Trump has even pledged to donate one million dollars to relief efforts. These private donations will be much more valuable than the as much as 100 billion dollars the federal government is expected to spend on relief and recovery. Federal disaster assistance hinders effective recovery efforts, while federal insurance subsidies increase the damage caused by natural disasters.

Throughout 2016, I would occasionally turn on the television to see how the punditocracy was responding to the mounting Trump tsunami. If you get most of your news online, watching cable news is frustrating. The commentary is so dumbed down and painfully reflective of speaker’s biases, you can always basically guess what’s coming next. With a few exceptions—above all Ann Coulter’s famous June 19, 2015 prediction of a Trump victory on Bill Maher—these pundits again and again told us that Trump would eventually go away, first after he made this or that gaffe, then after he “failed” in a debate, then after people actually started voting in the primaries.

Bodycam video shows a Salt Lake City police detective grabbing a frightened nurse and twisting her arm before handcuffing her at University Hospital, all because she cited policy not allowing him to draw blood from an unconscious patient.

“I’m just trying to do what I’m supposed to do,” nurse Alex Wubbels explained to Detective Jeff Payne on July 26. Video of her violent arrest was released by the Salt Lake Tribune late Thursday.

With a little help from Azerbaijan

Jason Ditz
Mon, Aug 28, 2017

A Bulgarian reporter has uncovered evidence that the United States and its allies, notably Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, have been using Azerbaijan’s Silk War Airlines to ferry entire planeloads of weapons to Syrian militants, some of which ended up in the hands of al-Qaeda’s Nusra Front.

Some 350 different flights, all labeled “diplomatic” flights to avoid being searched for weapons, were sent into the area, generally carrying arms purchased in Eastern Europe, so as to disguise the country that was actually sending them.

It is easy to tell things are getting shaky for statist Christian leaders and political activists, when they resort to trotting out the fake Romans 13 card. We’ve been hearing a lot about that lately, even in the mainstream press. It always means the “sheep” need to be subdued and herded back into their pen – back into the bubble of state approved thought.

Here is a tongue in cheek but accurate paraphrase of the passage from the UTV or “Unauthorised Totalitarian Version” (taken from the article, “Rights, Liberties and Romans 13“) which attempts to “translate” not so much the actual text, but the way many Christian leaders have drummed it in:
