Sherry Peel Jackson, the former IRS agent featured in Aaron Russo's documentary "America: Freedom to Fascism," who ended up in federal prison in early 2008 for challenging the legitimacy of the federal income tax, is having a party this August in Georgia to celebrate her freedom and the launch of her new life.Read more »
The Dutch Libertarian party has picked up the gauntlet and, for the second time ever, will participate in the next elections. It would be great if we could get some coverage on your site since there are many Liberty lovers that listen to your station and, well, to be honest, many Dutch are tight on donations. We are growing fast and could use some backing to pick up more momentum.

Indeed, when a group of participants were asked after the meeting if they consider themselves Republicans, nearly all shook their heads and boasted that they were "American citizens." Others said they knew of fellow Tea Party activists who refused to come to the meeting because they do not trust the Republican leadership.Read more »
Last week Daily Kos editor Markos Moulitsas told readers that he was "putting the finishing touches on my new book, American Taliban, which catalogues the ways in which modern-day conservatives share the same agenda as radical Jihadists in the Islamic world." But the liberal Dinish D'Souza (whose sinister claims about the left's "responsibility" for 9/11 are summarized and rebutted here by George Mason law professor Peter Berkowitz) found himself "making certain claims about Republicans that I didn't know if they could be backed up." Working backwards, Moulitsas set out to prove, via a DailyRead more »
