The turning point of the Revolution

On Oct. 17, 1777, British General John Burgoyne surrendered his 5,000 British and Hessian troops to American Gen. Horatio Gates at Saratoga, New York. It was more than just a military victory for the colonial army. It was the impetus for French King Louis XVI to recognize the independence of the United States and begin providing aid to the patriots’ struggle for independence from Great Britain.

Iowa police officer caught on video trying to manipulate motorist into unlawful vehicle search

Police officers are trained liars and manipulators. They will go to great lengths to get you to give up your rights and incriminate yourself. A citizen in Ankeny, Iowa, demonstrated how to respond to a LEO’s (legally entitled to oppress) manipulative line of questioning in a video secretly recorded and later uploaded to YouTube.

Crisis!

In October 2007, I warned my readers — for the umpteenth time — of the coming housing, collateral and derivatives collapse. No mainstream economists, and certainly not the Federal Reserve, saw it coming. Yet not only did I tell my readers it was coming, I told them what to do to preserve their wealth.

Illinois proves gun laws are racist

Illinois has the most expensive registration fee in the country. Getting a license is an expensive and burdensome proposition. And even then, obtaining “approval” is a tricky proposition, at best. The Cook County Sheriff has said he would object to as many applications as possible so as to send them to a panel that can deny them without explanation. But it’s easier to get a license if you’re white.

Has PL’s comment moderation changed?

An Open Letter to Mr. Bob Livingston;

I would like to fully understand why you have been strongly regulating posts for the past 2 months and changed the format so it’s all but impossible to contact Personal Liberty any longer. I understand that at times I get extremely vitriol. That happens when I have a liberal and/or progressive attack me, persons, or what I stand for. That I fully understand. But when you start suppressing peoples Freedom of Speech and/or Thoughts in the name of a ‘Benjamin’ you begin to tread a rice paper thin sacred ground. I believe it’s because of the federal gov’t & your sponsors regulating your website now. And yes Mr. Bob you do have sponsors & do make an income off of this website. You do not do this from the goodness of the bottom of your heart. I’ve watched other sites become as Personal Liberty is, “Catering to the PC Police & Liberal Progressives” who can make or break a business anywhere in the world at this current time. I guess I’ll have to resort to, The Drudge Report once again.

Propaganda is force!

Propaganda can be words and phrases that collectivize and mold the public mind so that subtle or overt force is made easier or becomes unnecessary. Carefully chosen words by the establishment are the basis of mass mind control leading to acceptance of force. Until the people accept collectivism under some pretext, they are not docile and completely subdued.
