Some of you have noticed that lately Personal Liberty Digest™ has been difficult to access and slow to respond. Posted comments are taking longer than normal to appear, and sometimes error messages are popping up. We’re aware of the problem, and our technical team is hard at work to solve it.
The War on Terror, at least as a name, is over, but the war on white Americans by the Department of Homeland Security is in full stride. The DHS has targeted Tea Party members, Ron Paul supporters, military veterans and gun owners as potential terrorists and encouraged Americans to spy on each other.
The United States Food and Drug Administration is trying to implement new guidelines that will effectively kill the nation’s supplement industry. The guidelines were reviewed by the Alliance for Natural Health, and the alliance determined them to be onerous and punitive.
How long before every aspect of government has its own police force? Apparently, we are nearly there, as an 83-year-old New York woman found out on June 25. On that day, Darbe Pitofsky threw a brown bag filled with old papers in a city litter basket — a crime for which a city sanitation worker wrote a summons.
Senator Charles Grassley continues to peel back the layers of the U.S. inJustice Department’s conspiracy to send arms to Mexican drug dealers and use those gun sales as a pretext to impose stricter gun laws on the American people. Grassley has told news agencies that high-ranking Justice Department officials were briefed on Operation Fast and Furious and Operation Gunrunner as early as October 2009.
If there’s one thing President Barack Obama does well, it’s talk (as long as his teleprompter is handy). On Tuesday, Obama spouted more empty rhetoric from a manufacturing plant in Bettendorf, Iowa, when he said: “I want the cars and planes and wind turbines of the future to bear the proud stamp that says ‘Made in America.’”
The Texas Legislature blinked Monday and passed a watered-down anti-groping bill that gives Transportation Security Administration agents carte blanche to continue groping travelers at Texas airports based on reasonable suspicion.
President Barack Obama’s decision to bring home 10,000 of the 33,000 “surge” troops in Afghanistan by the end of the year and the remainder by September 2012 is obviously a political ploy. Regardless, it’s a start. The mission’s accomplished (apologies to President George W. Bush). Osama bin Laden is dead. The Taliban cut and ran to Pakistan.
The Texas anti-groping bill that died after the thugocracy that is President Barack Obama’s so-called Department of Justice threatened to make Texas a no-fly zone is up for consideration in a special legislative session.
