Tom's Take: "Historic! Feds Forced to Surrender to American Citizens" - YouTube

Here's what InfoWars said:

In an epic standoff that Infowars reporter David Knight described as being like "something out of a movie," supporters of Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy advanced on a position held by BLM agents despite threats that they would be shot at, eventually forcing BLM feds to release 100 cattle that had been stolen from Bundy as part of a land grab dispute that threatened to escalate into a Waco-style confrontation.

Here's the video:

Right off the top, let me say that this will only send the federal government into planning overtime. They will analyze everything and analyze it again and again. They will approach it as a war now. They'll plan well ahead for cutting off transportation routes, just the way they cut off communications. They'll train and drill for how to combat the tactics that were used against them here. The next "rancher" or "farmer" will first be completely isolated (cutoff) and a total perimeter around him will be sealed by various means including drones (armed when it comes to that). I don't mean little drones but the full-blown ones that fire hellfire missile from beyond handgun and typical rifle range. They have many options and a blank check. They could gas everybody. They have sound and microwave and other technologies.

They already cut off communications in this incident. That was done just in case they opened fire on the protesters.

Look, the constitutionality of the federal lands is certainly debatable. It's been debated down through many, many decades. The Enclave Clause and the Property Clause have their "strict constructionists" and "originalists" versus "penumbra" and "living document" adherents.

I think it is strange, and always have, that 80% of Nevada is federal land. At the same time, I like national parks and don't want them privatized at all. I'm a conservationist and environmentalist too, but I see the federal government allowing clear cutting and strip mining where such should never have occurred. It's not as if the federal government has done a great job managing the lands that way too often it puts off limits to the public, who ultimately own the land because the government is of them: the People.

I've read the criticisms of Harry Reid about the Chinese solar company, but I've not been convinced that that planned deal is the reason for this federal action against Cliven Bundy. I'd have to see a great deal more detail on it before reaching that conclusion.

We need more and better investigative journalism on the subject, not reporters making up their minds before they really have all the facts and have really researched the issues by going to the sources.

I'm not saying don't speculate out loud. I'm saying to call things "alleged" rather than certain criminal evidence.

InfoWars doesn't know what Harry Reid is thinking or doing behind the scenes on every bit of business (governmental or otherwise) that he conducts.

Some of the information about him doesn't look good. He seems to have been more than a bit careless about conflicts of interest, but InfoWars should learn to approach people such as Reid to let him tell his side and then InfoWars let the whole picture tell the story.

If Reid were to decline to comment, decline an interview, that would be his problem.

Must Watch, Especially Youths: "Why I'm burning my last bridge with Obama" - YouTube

Back before he even announced his candidacy for President, I warned as many people as possible that Barack Obama is a huge fraud and would be a huge disappointment. Well, there were lots of young people who simply had to find out for themselves. I'm glad many have. Here's just one of them. Watch this:

Must Watch: "Understanding Same-Sex Attraction" - YouTube

This is the best overview of the subject I've seen, and I've seen quite a few. The only area where I'll mention any difficulty is with the statement that identical twins would necessarily be 100% the same. I would mention epigenetics in the same sense (difficulty), but I see epigenetics as environmentally sensitive on a different and higher level than are genes, per se. As for the actual percentage less than 100%, it certainly would be very high, in the 90's for sure to my understanding and certainly not 11% (or 20 or 40%, as some other studies have suggested). The methodology of such studies is always called into question, but keep in mind that the same holds for the studies cited by the homosexual activists.

This documentary is an eye-opening experience for many as it presents clear evidence showing that no one is "born gay" and that many people with unwanted same-sex attraction have been able to change. We summarize the research data, include interviews with top experts in the field, and present powerful testimonials from four men who speak honestly, openly and compellingly about what it was like for them to develop same-sex attraction and live the homosexual lifestyle. They then discuss their experiences with therapy that helped them to develop a healthy heterosexual sexual orientation.

In conjunction with the release of this video, we are also releasing our extensive new policy brief, Laws Banning Sexual Orientation Change Therapy are Harmful and Violate Fundamental Human Rights.

Our new documentary and policy brief together are very timely. More and more people are confused because of misinformation regarding homosexuality, and they believe the "born that way" (and can't change) myth. Increasingly, the rights of those who seek change therapy (also known as sexual orientation change therapy or SOCE) are violated, as laws are being enacted to ban it.

Also keep in mind that the above is a very cursory overview. The actual therapy, in its finest details, is every bit as enlightening.

As for harm, that subject has been abused by the homosexual movement's activists. The subject is initially anxiety provoking, and homosexuals are typically hyper-sensitive relative to the general population. Failure can be internalized after a very short and still confused, anxiety provoking, effort to comprehend, digest, and effectuate the aspects of the Reparative Therapy (RT).

Lastly, motivation appears to be the most important factor.
