And now for something completely different… The infamous creators of the Bed Intruder song, the Gregory Brothers, have released a hilarious new video for their “Songify the News” series with shots of VP Joe Biden on guns and Rand Paul on drones and the NSA. It’s remarkable how these issues have become such major scandals, and videos like this continue to stoke the fire of frustration against government power. Enjoy!

Recapping a few interesting and significant links of the past few weeks.
Here are some things you might not have seen in your internet sojourns lately…
Pope Francis is urging that world leaders end the “tyranny of money”. Unless he’s talking about fiat money like the Federal Reserve and the European central bank, I am not sure this is his best moment. Would any Catholics care to comment further? I may not have all the information here…
Rand Paul had an interesting day at the Reagan Forum last week.
Looks like Ayn Rand really hated C.S. Lewis. I’m not a big fan of Rand in the first place, and this isn’t increasing my esteem.
Check out these really intense historical anti-war posters. Wow!

Anthony Gregory explains the significance of the Rand Paul Filibuster in two minutes:
This is an exciting time for liberty, so major props to Rand Paul for taking this stand and letting the establishment know that civil liberties really are sacred. (Now, if only he’ll give LCC the interview he promised! )

Recapping the interesting and significant news and articles of the past week.
American Christians should be concerned about drugs not because the drugs themselves harm (some do, and some not so much), but because the United States government uses drugs as an excuse to wage total war on the American people. Anthony Gregory recently published reasons why the Right should oppose the drug war at AmCon Mag.
I’m also excited to announce that our very own Laurence Vance is releasing a new book about the drug war on September 30th. He is sending me a copy with haste and I look forward to telling all of you about it soon.
Rand Paul, to me, is somewhat of a mixed bag, but sometimes he really surprises me. For instance, at the recent Values Voter Conference he clearly argued for a non-interventionist foreign policy, even saying, “I don’t believe Jesus would have killed anyone.” Kudos to Rand for sticking to the peace message here.
I would be remiss to point out, though, that one can also be a Christian nonvoter like Jim Fedako. Whatever you choose, do so knowing why you do it.
Did you know that the Federal Reserve now has police powers? And that they’re buying massive amounts of ammunition? So much for being a “private” institution (as if it ever was one)!
How about another infographic? Here is one on online piracy that is… very informative!
And now for you’re moment of Zen…
The chemist in me found this very, very funny.
