Those who pirate the show have several reasons for doing so. In some countries there is simply no legal option available, however, the price tag that comes with many of the legal services is almost as big of a hurdle.

The Great New Zealand Economic Boom That Isn't

Lately our sociopath and liar infested John Key led National Govt has been boldly trying to dupe the whole country into believing there is some great economic recovery going on. Evidence of this is hard to find on the ground around town though. If increased homelessness and swelling numbers of beggars on the streets is a sign of our booming economy I hope it tanks again. An article published on recently say's: But Business and Economic Research (Berl) chief economist Ganesh Nana said there was a question mark around the breadth and depth of New Zealand's economic recovery. "I'm of the opinion that it's a fairly narrowly based recovery based on dairy and forestry exports and the rebuild of Christchurch and there's actually not much else to it," Nana said.

Feds Back Down In New Bundy Standoff, Agree to Release Cattle

In an epic standoff that Infowars reporter David Knight described as being like “something out of a movie,” supporters of Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy advanced on a position held by BLM agents despite threats that they would be shot at, eventually forcing BLM feds to release 100 cattle that had been stolen from Bundy as part of a land grab dispute that threatened to escalate into a Waco-style confrontation.

The video below is part of the public comments during an emergency Moapa Valley Town Board Meeting regarding Cliven Bundy's standoff with armed agents on his Nevada Ranch that has grazing rights on public land.

Dallas Police Association against citizens filming police

The police association says they support dashcams and bodycams. Of course, those devices are property of the department and would be operated by the same caliber of officer that would turn it off while another officer plants evidence. In an almost laughable twist, the Dallas Police operate a program called Iwatch that requests that citizens spy on their neighbors and send in video and photos via a smartphone app. To recap: a citizen is apparently ok while spying on neighbors and providing evidence to law enforcement and runs no risk of harm, but when a citizen is filming a police officer, suddenly the video is less reliable and the camera operator may be in danger.

IRS Launches Attack On Ron Paul And Campaign for Liberty

This is one of the toughest letters I’ve ever had to send.

For years, people have joked that the three most feared letters in the English language may well be these . . .

I – R – S.

But today, I’m not laughing.

Just days ago, the IRS handed Campaign for Liberty a hefty fine and DEMANDED we turn over sensitive contributor information.

If we don’t comply with the IRS’ outrageous demand for sensitive donor information, I’m afraid we’ll face additional fines that could cripple Campaign for Liberty and perhaps even force us to shut our doors.

But,I’m not naïve. I know where this is headed.

The statists at the IRS know I’ll NEVER EVER turn over confidential information about Campaign for Liberty’s donors without a fight.

Militias on route: Is the second American Revolution starting in Bunkerville?

What is it all about? Mr. Bundy’s daughter Shiree Bundy Cox explains:
