Here is a collection of some of the stories that Personal Liberty staffers will be keeping an eye on throughout the day. Click the links for the full stories.

  • Plans are in the works for an armed march on Washington, D.C., this Fourth of July, an act of civil disobedience “to put the government on notice that we will not be intimidated,” according to organizer Adam Kokesh.
  • There’s “no coherent plan” for closing the U.S. military detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, according to Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.).
  • Congressional Democrats are working hard to distance themselves from the Obama Administration’s explanation of the Benghazi, Libya, attacks as it becomes harder to deny that the White House lied.
  • James Porter, whom the National Rifle Association will elect as its president Monday, believes that “revenge is what’s motivating the president’s unrelenting attacks on gun owners today.”

    Cruz is going use every “fear” trick in the book and destroy Rubio and another pragmatic GOPer during his run for the presidency only to find out…
    Cruz can’t run… He wasn’t born in the United States
    More reason why the GOP has no business winning anymore national elections. They are a complete joke.

      Not being born in the U.S. didn’t stop the Bamunist from Kenya.
      I guess your guy started the precedent.

        Well you can repeat that lie as many times as you wish. Doesn’t make it any more true.

        • JimH

          You can deny the truth all you want, it won’t make it false.

          • Dave

            Truth? Do you have any? Sherriff Joe Arpio’s waste of tax payer money to “uncover” a false BC was debunked…Another crasy Donald Trump also failed… So unless you have something concrete… The only one who can’t be president is Cruz.

          • JimH

            Still in denial?

            Cruz isn’t the”only” one who can’t be President.

            There are many other immigrants that can’t and “one” who shouldn’t be.

            I guess you were a Clinton fan, so the truth may be a concept that is strange to you. So I am fighting unfairly.
