Video about the White House Visitor Logs that it took litigation to get access to; showing the excessive influence of lobbyists in politics.
The NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act), the act that allows the US Government to indefinitely detain US citizens without trial, has had a slight change to it.

A horrifying new bill has passed through congress with 399 votes Yea, and 3 votes Nay.
Once signed by President Barack Obama, HR 347 will empower federal agents to arrest and bring felony criminal charges against citizens engaged in political protests anywhere in the USA where people protected by the secret service are present.
This bill will essentially silence protest at any major political event – in direct contravention of citizens’ First Amendment constitutional rights.

One by one, the democratic rights that America claims to want to institute in countries subject to US military intervention, are being systematically stripped away from its own people, while the whole world watches.
It seems that it is not necessarily the regime in Tehran that Benjamin Netanyahu (President of Israel) is attempting to destabilize – with every new war the US enters, their resources are further depleted and their status as world #1 takes another blow.

You decide.
