For the past week or so, I’ve been warning readers that the supposedly “liberal” state of New York has some of the most repressive voting laws in the country. Before reading the rest of this post, I suggest refreshing your memory on just how undemocratic New York is by checking out the following:
Activist Post reporter Derrick Broze speaks with the president of the Mises Institute, Jeff Deist, at the 2016 Texas Libertarian Party State Convention about different ways that activists can best increase liberty around the world.
In Pennsylvania, delegates may have the power to swing GOP presidential race
While most states award convention delegates on a winner-take-all or proportional basis, 54 of Pennsylvania’s 71 delegates — three for each of 18 congressional districts — are officially unbound to a candidate and do not have to announce their intentions before Tuesday’s vote. The winners can vote for whomever they want at the convention.
The complexities of the process mean Trump could once again come up short on delegates despite winning the popular vote. Campaign manager Corey Lewandowski told reporters after Trump’s victory in New York on Tuesday that Pennsylvania has “a very difficult process” of selecting delegates.
“I don’t want to get into the intricacies of our Pennsylvania strategy, but I think we’ll make sure people know who the Trump delegates are,” he said.

Let's not pretend that dollar isn't a tool of enslavement… Behind the news that Harriet Tubman will appear on the face of the $20 bill is a hidden struggle between the faction that wanted to kill the private central bank in America, and the faction that empowered it.
Originally, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew was going to replace Alexander Hamilton, the nation's first Treasury secretary, on the $10 bill in favor of a woman's face (originally it was going to be Susan B. Anthony)
But former Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke was "appalled" and launched a revolt to oust President Andrew Jackson from the $20 bill instead.
Why? Because Hamilton, on the $10, instituted a central bank and fought for strong central government, while Jackson, on the $20, vowed to kill the central bank.
US President Barack Obama arrives in the UK on Thursday to urge the British public to vote to ‘remain’ in the European Union in the June 23 Brexit referendum. Since the presidential visit was announced, however, critics have told him to “butt out.”

Senior Tory ‘leave’ campaigners have been just as withering in their commentary, with US-born London Mayor Boris Johnson accusing Obama of “outrageous and exorbitant hypocrisy.”

For believing, we ever lived in a “free” country. As long ago as the reign of His Rotundity – the second president of the United (at bayonet-point) States – people were being dragooned off the street and roughly thrown into cages for having annoyed the powers-that-be. Or who were deemed “dangerous” by the powers-that-be? This was more than 200 years before The Chimp came along with his squinty-eyed pronouncements about “the enemies of freedom” and being either “with us” or “against us.”

The Saudi rulers – as corrupt, autocratic and reprehensible as they are – are little more than slavish middle-mangers of the American-Zionist Empire, a far cry from the domineering Caesarian overlords that the deceptive mainstream media and some Zionist apologists in the alternative media want to make them out to be. Middle-managers cannot organize the biggest conspiracy of the 21st century, hoodwinking the world’s foremost superpower and somehow managing to get away with it.

Sean Hannity got a little frustrated with Ted Cruz during a radio interview this afternoon over his campaign’s delegate game. Cruz said he doesn’t think most people care about this stuff. Hannity shot back by invoking his millions of followers and saying plenty of people “find this whole process confusing.” When Cruz dismissively said only Donald Trump‘s people are complaining, Hannity kind of blew up: “Senator, why do you do this? Every single time––no, you gotta stop! Every time I have you on the air and I ask you a legitimate question, you try to throw this in my face, I’m getting sick of it!” Cruz testily asked, “Sean, can I answer your last question without being interrupted?” He explained how the system works and how the “noise and complaining and whining” is only coming from Team Trump.
