Rand Paul Makes Appeal To Fiscally Conservative, Socially Liberal Voters: ‘A Plurality Of People Are No Longer Republican Or Democrat’

Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.), looking very much like a man testing liberals’ tolerance for a Republican presidential candidate with hybrid social and fiscal values, made the case for a more “live and let live” Republican platform last week in Silicon Valley, where he spoke at the tech-centric LincolnLabs Reboot Conference.

Illustrating his message by focusing on the shifting political values of a young, technically proficient Silicon Valley workforce, Paul told Reason TV he believes “a plurality” of Americans aren’t aligning with the competing platforms extended by the Nation’s two dominant political parties.

“I think they’re not completely comfortable in either party…and I truly believe the conclusion that a plurality of people are no longer Republican or Democrat,” he told Reason’s Nick Gillespie.

“If you ask people out here, ‘are you more fiscally conservative? – less taxes than the President [wants]; less regulation,’ they’ll say, ‘yeah, I’m more conservative than the President.’”

But, when the topic shifts to civil liberties and personal freedoms:

“’Are you more moderate or liberal on social issues than the Republicans?’ – ‘Yes.’ So they don’t fit neatly in either category, but I think they’re also primed for someone who will come to them with a message that is not entirely Republican and not entirely Democrat.”

No Facts Or Evidence Needed For Obama To Deem You A Terrorist

An expansion of the Federal government’s terrorist watchlist system under the Obama Administration allows for American citizens and foreigners to be blacklisted as possible terrorists with “neither ‘concrete facts’ nor ‘irrefutable evidence.’”

That’s according National Security Agency story-breaker Glenn Greenwald’s The Intercept, which released the governments “March 2013 Watchlisting Guidelines” to the public Wednesday.

The Intercept reports:

The new guidelines allow individuals to be designated as representatives of terror organizations without any evidence they are actually connected to such organizations, and it gives a single White House official the unilateral authority to place “entire categories” of people the government is tracking onto the no fly and selectee lists. It broadens the authority of government officials to “nominate” people to the watchlists based on what is vaguely described as “fragmentary information.” It also allows for dead people to be watchlisted.

The implications of labeling people as terrorists based on lacking information are great, ranging from causing individuals problems with law enforcement to making it virtually impossible to travel freely or find employment. And while getting put on the watchlist can result from something as simple as having an unfortunate encounter with law enforcement on government property, the secrecy surrounding Nation’s intelligence apparatus makes it very difficult to be removed.

Again from The Intercept:

The government has been widely criticized for making it impossible for people to know why they have been placed on a watchlist, and for making it nearly impossible to get off. The guidelines bluntly state that “the general policy of the U.S. Government is to neither confirm nor deny an individual’s watchlist status.” But the courts have taken exception to the official silence and footdragging: In June, a federal judge described the government’s secretive removal process as unconstitutional and “wholly ineffective.”

The difficulty of getting off the list is highlighted by a passage in the guidelines stating that an individual can be kept on the watchlist, or even placed onto the watchlist, despite being acquitted of a terrorism-related crime. The rulebook justifies this by noting that conviction in U.S. courts requires evidence beyond a reasonable doubt, whereas watchlisting requires only a reasonable suspicion. Once suspicion is raised, even a jury’s verdict cannot erase it.

New American Wars Would Be Very Unpopular

Despite rising tensions in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, a new poll shows that a broad margin of war-weary Americans want the U.S. to mind its own business.

The poll, out Monday from POLITICO, found that only 17 percent of Americans believe that the U.S. should intensify its response to Russian aggression in Ukraine compared to 34 percent who want the U.S. to be less involved. Thirty-one percent of those polled said that America’s current foreign policy toward Russia is sufficient.

As the situation in Iraq continues to deteriorate, respondents to the poll were largely against getting more involved in the country to stem the tide of violence. While 51 percent said that the current Iraq conflict affects U.S. national security, just 19 percent want the U.S. more involved. Twenty-three percent of people polled said that the current strategy in Iraq is enough.

Getting involved in the ongoing Syrian crisis is even less appealing to American voters, according to the polling data. Forty-two percent of respondents said that America should stay out of the conflict, compared to just 15 percent supporting military interventions.

Likewise, more than 75 percent of voters said that the plan to remove all U.S. troops from Afghanistan by the end of 2016 should move forward as planned.

“The picture that emerges from the survey is consistent across issues of foreign policy and national security: Americans are profoundly wary of getting entangled overseas and seem to be skeptical of the value of projecting U.S. power on foreign conflicts,” POLITICO noted. “Republicans are modestly more hawkish than Democratic and independent voters, but a majority of self-identified GOP voters support pulling out of Afghanistan and maintaining or reducing involvement in Iraq, Syria and Ukraine.”

The Perfect Song If The Immigration Crisis Has You Angry

Back in 2010, legendary satirical musician Ray Stevens released a song criticizing the Obama Administration’s immigration policies. The 3-minute, 19 second “Come to the USA” has since garnered more than 8 million views on YouTube— and Steven’s criticisms are more prescient than ever.

At one point, Stevens sings:

Come to the USA.

It will be your lucky day

‘Cause when you get in there’s lots of goodies waitin’

Like health care, welfare, free education,

Help with your voter registration

And driver’s license and credit card.

And license plates for your old car.

Other than irritating a few liberals, the song got little fanfare following its release. It’s now making a resurgence in the conservative blogosphere— and for good reason.

Largest Ever Rally Against Illegal Immigration To Kick Off Friday

Americans are expected to gather at more than 300 locations throughout the United States Friday and Saturday in what organizers are calling “the largest coordinated protest against all forms of amnesty, comprehensive immigration reform, and President Obama’s complete failure to enforce immigration laws and secure our borders.”

Via a flyer announcing the event:

Our Border Patrol is overwhelmed by the massive flow of illegal aliens crossing our border daily.   Illegal aliens with communicable diseases and conditions such as tuberculosis, scabies, and head lice are entering our country unabated.   There is a very real security risk to Americans from drug cartels, gang members, and terrorists – all of whom can cross our border with no resistance.   Adding insult to injury, American taxpayers are being forced to pay for transportation, housing, schooling, legal assistance, and more for the illegals crossing our border.

Americans for Legal Immigration Reform reports that more than 50 organizations are working together to make the nationwide protests a reality.

Organizers say they have four main goals for the protests:

1)      Raise public awareness of the current Obama inspired illegal immigration surge at our borders!

2)      Unify Americans of all races, political parties, and walks of life against immigration reform amnesty and Obama’s surge!

3)      To stand in solidarity with the Americans in Murrieta, CA and Oracle, AZ and many other communities that have turned back Obama’s invasion buses and to get Americans in every state fighting back in similar fashion!

4)      To harness the growing anger and discontent in America and channel that energy into the remaining GOP primaries and general elections of 2014 and to throw as many immigration reform amnesty supporters out of office in the coming weeks!

Snowden: Government Spies Routinely Gawk At Nude Photos While Sifting Through Communications Data

In an interview with The Guardian, National Security Agency whistle-blower Edward Snowden said that the people tasked with digging through private digital communications data routinely stumble across nude photos and share them with friends.

Snowden revealed:

You’ve got young enlisted guys, 18 to 22. They’ve suddenly thrust into a position of extraordinary responsibility, where they now have access to all of your private records. Now, in the course of their daily work, they stumble across something that is completely unrelated to their work in any sort of necessary sense. For example: an intimate nude photo of someone in a sexually compromising situation, but they’re extremely attractive. So what do they do? They turn around in their chair, and they show their coworker. And their coworker says, “Oh, hey, that’s great. Send that to Bill down the way. And then Bill sends it to George, George sends it to Tom, and sooner or later, this person’s whole life has been seen by all of these other people. It’s never reported. Nobody ever knows about it, because the auditing of these systems is incredibly weak.

The statement came during a conversation with Guardian editor-in-chief Alan Rusbridger and reporter Ewen MacAskill in Moscow. The full interview is set to be released Friday.

  • President Barack Obama listened to immigration activists run through a long wish list of executive actions – then added a request of his own. “You’re not going to get me impeached, are you?” Obama said, according to people in a private White House meeting late last month. “Because there’s lots of other things I want to do besides immigration.” Source: POLITICO…
  • With thousands of undocumented immigrant minors crossing the nation’s southern border in recent months, the percentage of Americans citing immigration as the top problem has surged to 17% this month, up from 5% in June, and the highest seen since 2006.

  • Detroit has experienced 37 percent fewer robberies in 2014 than during the same period last year, 22 percent fewer break-ins of businesses and homes, and 30 percent fewer carjackings.

Personal Liberty Digest™ P.M. Edition 7-16-2014: Americans Increasingly Worried About Immigration; Liberty Groups Sue Obama Over NSA; All Guns Are The Most Dangerous Guns; Gitmo Secrets Impede Justice; Michelle Obama Race Baits In White House Photo

Brush up on the day’s headlines with Personal Liberty’s P.M. Edition news links.

News Flash: Guns In America Have Triggers, Fire Projectiles

Rolling Stone magazine recently published a highly informative photo essay titled “The 5 Most Dangerous Guns In America” which lends further credence to the notion that those who most fear firearms are also those who know the least about them. Doh!..

Americans Haven’t Been This Worried About Immigration In Years

Michelle Obama’s Hammer-Subtle Racial Photo Op

For all their acceptance among America’s pseudointellectual elite, Barack and Michelle Obama possess a gift for nuance and subtext that even the most uneducated of jerks would likely find offensive and gauche.

Today, the White House released this insult to everyone’s intelligence (as well as their sense of American unity) on its Flickr page, meta-martyring the first lady under the cruel sign of yesterday’s racists:

MO

Depending on the level of criticism the White House receives over this one, its qualified comment on the photo either will be “we still have a long way to go” (if the criticism is scant), or “look how far we’ve come” (if the criticism is robust).

Michelle Obama laid the groundwork for either reinterpretation during her speech in May, when she spoke to high school graduates in Topeka, Kansas and toured the Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site – where, obviously, this picture was taken…by White House photographer Chuck Kennedy.

However many more words a picture like this may be worth, given the context – we’re done.

Disgusting.

Meet Phillip Mimouf-Wifarts, An Honest Politician

Gil Fulbright, a satirical candidate in the Kentucky race between Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and his Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes, is giving Americans a rare glimpse at an honest politician.

Enjoy:

Fulbright, the brainchild of the campaign finance reform group Represent.Us, is running his fake campaign in Kentucky because the McConnell/Grimes race is shaping up to be the most expensive Senate race in U.S. history.

Via Represent.Us:

The race between McConnell and Grimes is on pace to cost an unprecedented $100 million. Over three quarters of both candidate’s money is coming from outside of Kentucky, including a who’s who of big money special interests. When it costs that much to win an election, the candidates become dependent on their funders, not on the people they’re supposed to represent. As a result, the issues that matter to the people go unsolved.

In order to raise awareness about the electoral corruption that affects Americans of all political affiliations, Gil will be inserting himself in the Kentucky race by renting billboards and TV ads and crashing campaign events in his tour bus. Unfortunately, he won’t actually appear on the ballot.

Rather, Holder argues, Americans ticked off at the Obama Administration and his Department of Justice are simply racists. Read More…

NSA Spying: Now It’s Personal

Imagine that you watched a police officer in your neighborhood stop ten completely ordinary people every day just to take a look inside their vehicle or backpack.

Even the most law-abiding person would eventually protest this treatment. In fact — they have.Electronic Frontier Foundation…
