The New York Times Admits That Virtually Every Major News Organization Allows The News To Be Censored By Government Officials
In one of the most shocking articles that the New York Times has ever put out, a New York Times reporter has openly admitted that virtually every major mainstream news organization allows government bureaucrats and campaign officials to censor their stories. For example, almost every major news organization in the country has agreed to submit virtually all quotes from anyone involved in the Obama campaign or the Romney campaign to gatekeepers for “quote approval” before they will be published. If the gatekeeper in the Obama campaign does not want a certain quote to get out, the American people will not see it, and the same thing applies to the Romney campaign. The goal is to keep the campaigns as “on message” as possible and to avoid gaffes at all cost. But this kind of thing is not just happening with political campaigns. According to the New York Times, “quote approval” has become “commonplace throughout Washington”. In other words, if you see a quote in the newspaper from someone in the federal government then it is safe to say that a gatekeeper has almost certainly reviewed that quote and has approved it. This is another sign that “the free and independent media” in this country is a joke. What we get from the mainstream media is a very highly filtered form of propaganda, and that is one reason why Americans are turning away from the mainstream media in droves. People want the truth, and more Americans than ever realize that they are not getting it from the mainstream media.

1.) Mitt Romney cannot win the Presidency without the votes of Ron Paul supporters, and everyone knows it.
2.) The GOP establishment hates Ron Paul, and everyone knows it.
3.) If Ron Paul is not included at the RNC he could throw a counter convention that would likely have more attendees than the GOP convention itself.

One of the victims was a three-month-old infant.
Diversity – Stubborn Ignorance
Academic intelligentsia, their media, government and corporate enthusiasts worship at the altar of diversity. Despite budget squeezes, universities have created diversity positions, such as director of diversity and inclusion, manager of diversity recruitment, associate dean for diversity, vice president of diversity and perhaps minister of diversity. This is all part of a quest to get college campuses, corporate offices and government agencies to “look like America.”

Another Angle On The Batman Shooting
Mike Adams and Alex Jones are covering the Batman shooting with very good reports. No need for me to recycle their insights and evidence.
I want to make a few points.
Once law enforcement has satisfied itself that James Holmes acted alone, the case will be pushed along to a disposition: a confession or a trial or a plea. And with minimal fuss, the media will fall into line.
However, independent journalists like Alex and Mike will continue to look at the situation from many sides, because there are unanswered questions, contradictions, and political consequences. Front and center is the question: was the Denver attack in some way staged?

As a teacher in a public high school, I am daily confronted with the lamentable realities of state-monopoly education. Student apathy, methodological stagnation, bureaucratic inefficiency, textbook-publishing cartels, obsessive preoccupation with grades, coercive relationships, and rigid, sanitized curricula are just a few of the more obvious problems, attended by the cold-shower disillusionment and gradual burnout among teachers to which they almost invariably lead
It’s Cruel Not To Teach Children Grammar
When my daughter Veronica was little she came home from school in a rage brandishing her exercise book, in which she had achieved nought out of 10 in a spelling test. She had spelled fate as “fata”, hate “hata”, mate “mata” and so on. Her contention was that she should have got nine out of 10 because she had only made one mistake: adding “a” instead of “e” to fat, hat, mat etc, to produce the “long” sounds.
Feminist Journo Charged with Hate Crime for Helping Muslim Woman with Groceries
Want an example of how a liberal society is set up to eventually commit suicide? A feminist journalist from England, Cinnamon Heathcote-Drury, got involved in a case that serves as just such an example.
Heathcote-Drury got her world turned upside down over the last few months, and the liberalism of her own self-defeating British culture is what did her in. One has to feel for her, if only a little bit, but her case most certainly shines a spotlight on the failings of progressivism.

Mayor Bloomberg Says Cops Should Go On Strike Until Americans Give Up Their Guns
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg told CNN’s Piers Morgan last night that he doesn’t “understand why police officers across this country don’t stand up collectively and say we’re going to go on strike, we’re not going to protect you unless you, the public, through your legislature, do what’s required to keep us safe.”
…and then he recanted.
The interesting thing is, if everyone was armed and the police went on strike, there would probably be less crime and we would be living a little freer. (See the next two stories for what I mean).
By the way…

Flex Your Rights Law Student Puts Cop In His Place – Carrying A Concealed Weapon Edition

“I was detained by Portland PD officer J McDonald on 26MAY2012. He detains me without suspicion of any criminal activity in violation of Delaware v Prouse.

He seizes my weapon with no reasonable suspicion that I’ve committed a crime in violation of Terry v Ohio. He demands my ID without reasonable suspicion in violation of Hiibel v Nevada”.
Personal Secession – Reactions and Suggestions
I received a lot of feedback after posting my latest video inspired by my previous essay, “I Hereby Secede.” I also received a number of recommendations on how to make such a declaration into a physical reality. From this I realized I should make clear the nature of such a personal declaration.
Please understand that this declaration/affirmation is just a first step. It must be followed with concrete action. Many folks contacted me offering a number of viable options to choose from. I think whatever plan of action you devise and execute is only limited by your creativity. If that runs out, you have the creativity of the entire human race to draw upon, which I believe is unlimited.

Obama creating African-American education office
President Barack Obama is creating a new office to bolster education of African-American students.
The White House says the office will coordinate the work of communities and federal agencies to ensure that African-American youngsters are better prepared for high school, college and career.
Yet Obama, and his enablers and worshipers, calls everyone ELSE racist. I wonder what would happen if a white president established an Irish-American Education Office? How about a Scandinavian-American Education Office?

18-Year-Old With Cojones
Sean Combs tested the system in Birmingham, Michigan by openly carrying an M-1 rifle, strapped to his back, through the quaint streets of new-money, downtown Birmingham. He was acquitted on charges of brandishing a firearm and disturbing the peace. The amazing fact is that Sean is only eighteen years old. The Observer & Eccentric writes:
Combs just graduated high school in June and had received the long gun — a vintage 1942 M1 Garand .30 caliber combat rifle — as a gift from one of his brothers on his 18th birthday.
In his testimony, Combs said he decided to walk around with the rifle to exercise his civil rights.
He knew he wasn’t breaking the law, and thus he refrained from showing his ID to prove his age. That is what set off the cops, and then he was then arrested. It is interesting how the police carried out the charges, even while blatantly confusing “brandishing” with open carry.

Video (4 1/2 minutes): [From Site]: From 1987 to 2010 (nearly a twenty five year period) Harry Reid publicly advocated for an audit of the Federal Reserve.

Today a bill calling for a Federal Reserve audit has passed the House for the first time in the Fed’s one hundred year existence…and Harry Reid is vowing to never let the bill come to a vote.
