Since the first court decision to articulate Native American law back in 1823, our nation’s courts have repeatedly invoked historical “facts” as a basis for fashioning judicial doctrines
that have been prejudicial and harmful to Native Americans.
NSA Propaganda video is one of the most disliked videos on youtube ever
The very epitome of propaganda, a video put out by the Department of Defense Youtube channel featuring calls by the NSA Director to limit journalism and expand spying has now achieved one of the highest known percentage of downvotes in Youtube history (4500 downvotes, 70 upvotes).
Checkout the video below, which likely only achieved its 70 upvotes from government bot programs.
The fact that the video has even been released shows how desperate the NSA and DoD are to repair their tarnished reputation. Ultimately, of course, they have and will continue to fail.
Jessica L. Tozer sits down with NSA Director and CYCOM Commander General Keith Alexander to get the story straight about the National Security Agency’s most criticized foreign intelligence and cybersecurity programs.

Judge Roy Bean didn’t have the FEDS looking over his shoulder and if he had I’ll bet a white faced calf against a rattlesnake he would have taught them what REAL ‘gun control’ was all about. . . . EDITOR

Armed with a tattered law book and a pair of six-shooters, the legendary Judge Roy Bean doled out a peculiar form of frontier justice in a lawless section of far West Texas during the last half of the 19th century. Photographs show a tough, grizzled old geezer in a dusty black coat. Tales from the life of the manipulative magistrate bridge the gap between horror and amusement.
Before he mounted the judicial bench in Texas, Roy Bean served as a California Ranger with a penchant for stealing the hearts of San Diego señoritas. One such amorous episode nearly cost him his life. With Bean in the saddle, a jealous suitor and others got the jump on Bean, strung him up to a poplar tree, urged his horse out from under him and left the scene. Unseen, the señorita dashed from her hiding place to cut Bean down. He was alive and kicking, but spent the rest of his life with a stiff neck. . . . Read Complete Report

Players can fight through the wetlands of the country surrounded by fellow guerrillas to a soundtrack of gunshot
Cuban programmers have unveiled a new 3D video game that puts a distinctly revolutionary twist on gaming, letting players recreate decisive clashes from the 1959 uprising in which many of their grandparents fought.
Fight your way through swamps shoulder-to-shoulder with bearded guerrillas clad in the olive green of Fidel Castro and Ernesto “Che” Guevara. Your mission: topple 1950’s Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista. Out to foil you are Batista soldiers and police who pop out from behind trees and fire from trucks and farmhouses. You pick them off with a vintage Colt .45 or Springfield rifle. If you’re hit three times, it’s revolution over. . . . Read Complete Report

. . . “The minimum wage in the two years before 1966 was five 90% silver quarters. That 90% silver $1.25 is roughly $25 in today’s money. Let me be clear: if the minimum wage had stayed at a mere $1.25 an hour and the central bank had not debased the money supply forcing the reduction or removal of the silver content, minimum wage workers would have been roughly two or three times better off today in terms of real purchasing power than they currently are with a nominal minimum wage nearly six times the nominal amount prior to 1966. Because of money supply inflation, the minimum wage is nearly six times as high…but buys roughly half as much…or less.” . . . Read Complete Report

New research has shed fresh light on Stonehenge’s past, suggesting that it was originally a graveyard and then a venue for mass celebrations that unified the whole of pre-historic Britain.
According to the team of researchers led by archeologist Professor Mike Parker Pearson of University College London, the historic site was in fact older than previously thought and had different functions.
“In many ways our findings are rewriting the established story of Stonehenge,” Parker Pearson said. . . . Read Complete Report
