Odds ‘n Sods:

Journalist Arrested For Defense of First Amendment

JWR’s Comment: We’ve mentioned Gary Hunt’s web site in SurvivalBlog in the past. I hope that readers took my advice and saved the content of those pages before they came under a Federal gag order. It was Hunt who named the large number of paid Federal informants that had infiltrated themselves into the Bundy protest group. And these men, we learned, were not just informants. Many of them were in actuality Agent Provocateurs who actively pushed the group to take illegal actions. Federal Judge Anna Brown apparently felt that Gary Hunt publishing that information constituted a threat—not a threat to a safety of the Federal agents but rather a threat by exposing the FBI’s 21st Century modus operandi. (Of the 22 “holdouts” at the Malheur Refuge, seven of them were paid Federal informants!) Hunt’s arrest is a bad precedent, as it indicates that the Federal courts have no respect for the First Amendment—at least not when it comes to journalists who expose Federal perfidy.

In 2009, YouTuber elifdsa posted this video: Europe Will Become Muslim Eurabia Within 20 Years ABSOLUTELY SHOCKING. Yesterday, we found this disturbing article: Londonistan: 423 New Mosques; 500 Closed Churches. These are sobering numbers. Can the U.S. withstand the onslaught any better? – Thanks to reader K.T. for the links.
