Disney's Tomorrowland -- a surprisingly positive film

I took a much younger person; she loved it, and so did I. Despite the usual Disney excesses,
the message of the film was very positive about a future built by individualist "dreamers" unfettered by government or other top-down institutional regulators.

It almost seems a sci fi Galt's Gulch, but as usual something goes wrong; yet it ends on an optimistic note.

And mostly it is great fun.

‘Rand Paul Should Just Run as a Democrat': The New GOP Talking Point

by Andrew Kirell
May 28th, 2015

Over the past 24 hours, an extraordinary conservative talking point was born: If Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) thinks so poorly of his own party’s aggressive foreign policy vision, then he should just pack up and leave.

Senator Paul’s act of heresy? Daring to suggest that the Republican Party’s hyper-aggressive hawkish wing at least partially contributed to the environment in which the militant Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant currently thrives.

The growing, nonpartisan drive to declassify a 28-page finding on foreign government support of the 9/11 hijackers is about to take an enormous step forward with the introduction of a Senate resolution urging the president to release the material to the public. Dramatically compounding the issue’s visibility, the resolution is being introduced by high-profile Republican presidential hopeful Rand Paul of Kentucky.

In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, host Marc Clair welcomes the Rutheford Institute‘s John Whithead to discuss his newsest book, Battlefield America: The War on the American People.

John describes how robots may become our newest law enforcers and how digital surveillance – along with physical surveillance via drones – may serve to quell free speech.

Live Anthrax Was FedEx Shipped to Nine States by Military,.... Accidentally

Forget about the military shipping live anthrax for the moment. Why were they shipping "dead" anthrax at all? Is our government really that inept or is it that they are desperately making preparations to kill us?

Vatican Adviser Says America’s Founding Document Is Outmoded, Reveals Global Game

Top Vatican adviser Jeffrey Sachs says that when Pope Francis visits the United States in September, he will directly challenge the “American idea” of God-given rights embodied in the Declaration of Independence.

Sachs, a special advisor to the United Nations and director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University, is a media superstar who can always be counted on to pontificate endlessly on such topics as income inequality and global health. This time, writing in a Catholic publication, he may have gone off his rocker, revealing the real global game plan.

Take a Drone Tour of Ancient History

By Erin Blakemore

It seems like drones are everywhere these days, but in one sense they’re ancient news — when they’re taking stunning aerial footage of ancient historic structures, that is. It’s time for a little jaunt through the intersection of things ancient and undeniably modern with three drone videos that give a soaring perspective on history.

First stop: Sudan, where a National Geographic team has captured aerial footage of the mysterious Nubian Pyramids. This UNESCO heritage site was left behind by the ancient people of the second kingdom of Kush approximately 3,000 years ago, but historians still aren’t sure about why and how they were constructed.
