(KurtNimmo) – The Cato Institute has compiled information on botched SWAT thug raids around the country and produced the map below. The map graphically reveals how often militarized police mistakenly terrorize citizens as the government pursues its totalitarian drug war. Continue reading
Once in a while, someone writes a column that leaves me enviously exclaiming, “Darn! I wish I had written that!” Candidly, I do not often find myself saying that, but I sure did when I read William Norman Grigg’s excellent column entitled “Casus Belli” (Latin for “Case for War”) on Monday, March 29, 2010. Read his column (even if you don’t read the rest of mine) at: Continue reading

(TenebroustVLog) – Campbell’s Soup replied to my straightforward question about fluoride in the water they use for their products. The letter was a masterpiece of dissembling. I hate when people skirt questions. As far as I’m concerned it is enough to convince me that they use fluoridated water.

Some political commentary on my views and promoting individual thinking. Continue reading
(DetroitNews) – Adrian — This small town in rural southeastern Michigan is known mostly for Adrian College and corn farms, but it’s no stranger to controversial anti-government movements.
The raid of an alleged Christian extremist group, Hutaree, has shocked residents of the small community of about 22,500 residents.

“Frankly, it seemed like a lot of overkill to me this weekend,” Hayes said about the raid. “Cars, trucks, a helicopter — why, they had more people out there than there was in church Sunday.”
Adrian, the Lenawee County seat, is the home base of the Rev. Rick Strawcutter, whose low-power radio station “Radio Free Lenawee” garnered attention for broadcasts stridently denouncing the federal government before it was shut down by the FCC in 2001 because it hadn’t obtained the proper broadcast license.
