The ability to travel in the United States is about to become more restrictive as the TSA announces it will soon be enforcing new identification standards in American airports.
ARNOLDS PARK, IOWA — A woman’s entire bank account was seized by the Internal Revenue Service — without even a criminal charge — because the agency claimed she deposited money “suspiciously.”
We know we aren’t imagining a problem when a leading intellectual think tank holds a conference specifically devoted to the topic of the American police state. Former Congressman Ron Paul was invited to speak at the Ludwig Von Mises Institute’s event in Houston, titled “The U.S. Police State.”
While some “journalists” would have you believe the biggest stories of 2013 were about twerking celebrities and over-hyped real-life courtroom sagas, much bigger events were happening with far more lasting national significance.

Aside from the ignorance and apathy of American voters, the biggest enabler of the American police state is the central bank, which provides limitless cash supplies to the government. December 23rd marks the 100th anniversary of this bank, called the Federal Reserve (or “the Fed”). This historic anniversary is no reason to celebrate; rather it is time we reflect on the practically invisible, yet unimaginably devious system which has been robbing Americans for the last century.
