1. Here is a link to a speech by Judge Napolitano on natural rights and the contemporary US government. One doesn’t have to look hard to see the contrast with natural rights Vs. various European and Canadian rights as well. The stream seems to be unreliable but it offers a download which should be done anyway and listen to it once you have it as thats more stable.

A suspected British boy has threatened the UK with new terror attacks in a depraved ISIS execution video in which five spies are killed.
Dressed in military fatigues and a black bandanna bearing the white flag of ISIS across his forehead, he points to the distance and declares: ‘We will kill kuffar [non believers] over there.’
The terror group’s captives, dressed in orange jumpsuits, were filmed ‘confessing’ in Arabic to spying for British security services.
One of the executioners threatened David Cameron before the five prisoners were shot in the back of the head at point blank range. […]
With five executioners standing behind the kneeling, shackled prisoners, a masked gunmen said in a clear British accent: ‘This is a message to David Cameron, slave of the White House, mule of the Jews.’
In the 10 minute long propaganda video, he described the Prime Minister as an ‘imbecile’, adding: ‘Your children will pay for your deeds.’
‘How strange it is that we find ourselves today hearing an insignificant leader like you challenge the might of the Islamic State.
‘How strange it is that the leader of a small island threatens us with a handful of planes. One would have thought you would have learned the lessons of your pathetic master in Washington and his failed campaign against Islamic State.

The numbers of UK-born medics being recruited to vile jihadi cause is so worrying that British officials have been sent to Sudan in a desperate attempt to stop the flow.
The Foreign Office understands that the Islamic State – also known as Daesh – are urgently seeking more foreign medics to help at its hospitals in Syria.
[…] He admitted: “The Islamic State realises that in fields like medicine, the non-Muslims are currently those advanced.”

HANOI (Reuters) – Vietnam formally accused China of violating its sovereignty and a recent confidence-building pact on Saturday by landing a plane on an airstrip Beijing has built on an artificial island in a contested part of the South China Sea.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Le Hai Binh said the airfield, had been “built illegally” on Fiery Cross Reef in the Spratly archipelago, in territory that was “part of Vietnam’s Spratlys”.
China’s Foreign Ministry rejected the complaint, saying that what was a test flight to the newly built airfield on the reef, which China calls Yongshu Jiao, was a matter “completely within China’s sovereignty,” the Chinese state news agency Xinhua reported.
The United States said it was concerned that the flight had exacerbated tensions.

Texas Gov Greg Abbott criticized President Barack Obama’s plan to move ahead with possible executive actions on guns in a tweet in which he told the Commander-in-Chief to ‘come & take’ the state’s guns.
Obama said in his weekly radio address that he is looking for ways to keep guns out of the hands of ‘a dangerous few’ without depending on Congress to pass a law on the fraught subject of gun control.
He plans to meet his attorney general, Loretta Lynch, on Monday to see what executive actions might be possible. Steps to strengthen background checks could come this week.
At a rally in Biloxi, Mississippi, tonight Donald Trump also pledged to undo any action Obama takes on gun control if he wins the next election.

Donald Trump blamed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for causing ‘tremendous death’ in the Middle East, while saying that she and President Barack Obama ‘created ISIS.’
Trump appeared on Sunday’s Face the Nation and suggested that Clinton had ruined the world.
‘I mean, the entire world has been upset,’ Trump said. ‘She’s done a horrible job, she’s caused so many of the problems. And, let me tell you something, she has caused death. She has caused tremendous death with incompetent decisions.’

10. Donald Trump makes another important observation about reporting on his appearances
(I must say I agree with Mr. Trump. There were moments when I caught myself clapping at the computer monitor. The media is disgusting and very arguably criminal when it comes to reporting on anything political)
Thank you Johnny U., M., Buck, Richard, ML., and all who sent in news. Its only Sunday and its shaping up to be one interesting week.
Here is an interesting video from last Aug.
Description reads: This Palestinian mother was shown such kindness by Jews when her young son was treated, free of charge, for his heart problem in an Israeli hospital.
She freely acknowledges this, but she still hopes that her child will grow up to be a martyr.
