In the same spirit as my Weekly Reads recap, here are some great videos that are worth watching. I pretty much always have two monitors on my desk, so I can watch them while I work, and many of the videos I watch can often be just listened to.

In this post lots of James O’Keefe, one of the reasons I hate the FDA, Rand Paul, school shooting discussion for people who are open minded to have a discussion, Ron Paul explains the Fed, exodus from high tax states, Missouri Senate Candidate Austin Petersen on Glenn Beck, fascinating video on a nuclear fuel that could be important, and a little fun from Tripp and Tyler.

Michelle Malkin: James O’Keefe has Gathered an Incredible Group of Citizen Journalists

Not the best talk I’ve ever heard Michelle Malkin give, but she raises some great points about the value of James O’Keefe’s work. I couldn’t agree more, much less eloquent summary of this video: Screw J-Schools, they’re worthless.

James O’Keefe Talks Journalism With Legendary Undercover Reporter Clarence Jones

Clarence Jones, a legendary undercover reporter, sits with James O’Keefe to discuss the risks and ethics of undercover journalism, and why investigative reporting is necessary.

Great discussion on modern media.

FDA’s Gag Order for Vape Entrepreneurs

I hate the FDA. Hate. It.

Suppression of Conservative Views Panel – James O’Keefe, James Damore – CPAC 2018

James O’Keefe spoke on a panel about the suppression of conservative views in Silicon Valley in the wake of Project Veritas’ latest undercover Twitter investigation at CPAC 2018. In addition to O’Keefe, panelists included “Google memo” author James Damore, free speech attorney Harmeet Dhillon, Media Research Center Vice President Dan Gainor and tech entrepreneur Marlene Jaeckel.

Sen. Rand Paul Speaks at the 2018 Kentucky Farm Bureau Breakfast in D.C. – Feb. 27, 2018

Not a majorly important speech. Comments on tax reform and potential advantage of the health care reform that allows individuals to purchase health insurance through groups.

How to Respond to School Shootings

This is a podcast I listen to. This is an outstanding episode about the topics of guns.

In the wake of the recent school shooting in Florida, New York Times bestselling novelist and former firearms instructor Larry Correia joins me to respond to the barrage of demonstrations against guns. If you oppose gun control, you value guns more than your own children, they say. That’s the intellectual level of the discussion so far. Larry and I raise it by 50 points in this episode.

The Fed Is At A Crossroads – Crisis Coming

Dr. Ron Paul explains how the Federal Reserve works. It’s one of the most important things you should understand. America is not a true free-market driven nation, it will never be as long as there is a central bank that controls the price of money which in turns manipulates the prices of everything in our society. Sorry your high school history teacher who was busy working on his playbook was probably not smart enough to explain this to you.

And if you think Ron Paul is crazy, that’s okay, I used to, too, until I actually listened and read the man. He’s brilliant.

Exodus From High Tax States Is Pouring Gasoline On Pension Fire

No ink has been spared documenting the looming “pension crisis.” Conservative estimates put the total unfunded pension liabilities of state and local governments at a staggering $2 trillion.

But if you thought it couldn’t get any worse, you’re wrong.

A Conservative/Libertarian Alliance? Austin Petersen on Glenn Beck

I’m supporting Austin Petersen for Missouri Senate. The Missouri GOP has picked an uninspiring, milk-toast candidate in state Attorney General Josh Hawley. I’m about done with the Republican party in every way possible. They’ve basically abandoned every principle I thought they supposedly held; markets, freedom, responsibility. Either change it in the primary or burn it to the ground. And don’t give me the crap about Petersen not being able to win in the general. Hawley can’t take a firm position on anything of substance, hides from the voters, has already stuck his foot in his mouth embarrassingly a couple of times, promised voters just a year ago to not ladder climb and is now ladder climbing, and right now will do no better than Petersen in a potential general election match-up with McCaskill. I suspect he was picked by the Missouri GOP because he was young and checked all the right establishment boxes.

Great interview of Petersen on Glenn Beck’s show.

Thorium: Kirk Sorensen at TEDxYYC

Fascinating science with incredible implications. We should hear more about this stuff.

Kirk Sorensen is founder of Flibe Energy and is an advocate for nuclear energy based on thorium and liquid-fluoride fuels. For five years he has authored the blog “Energy from Thorium” and helped grow an online community of thousands who support a renewed effort to develop thorium as an energy source.

Tripp and Tyler: A Rental Car Success Story

Because sometimes you just need a laugh. If you’ve never seen Tripp and Tyler videos, they’re a lot of fun.

Ah, yes, yet more news in the William (Bill) James Norris saga. You may recall, that I broke a story just before the election that raised some strange questions about a Jeff Smith that was on Twitter supporting Mr. Norris’ candidacy for Clay County Auditor. Chris Till of the Northland Young Republicans took it upon himself to contact Mr. Smith about some of his comments on his Twitter feed. I can’t blame the guy, because the comments were really kind of rude. “Mr. Smith” responded to Mr. Till, it appears that the man doesn’t have a clue what Mr. Till was talking about. Strange?

The really interesting thing about all this, is that “Mr. Smith’s” profile logo has changed to the Chiefs and he keeps tweeting about random stuff. Now, William James Norris Twitter profile no longer exists and when you access it, Twitter puts up a warning about it being suspended. Of course, guess who “Mr. Smith” follows….me. Ah, probably a coincidence.

The email communication is below, emails have been edited out.

Mr. Smith,
My name is Christopher Till.  I am from Excelsior Springs, MO and I am wanting some answers so if you could clarify and clear up some of the muddy waters for me, that’d be great.
I believe that my character has been degraded by stuff that, under your name and picture, on twitter were just plain lies.  One even claiming that I was on Government Assistance.  I have been on VA Compensation for my war wounds in Iraq.  But to just plain out slander someone is horrible.
I also don’t believe it was you who put this information out.  I believe it was a newly elected county auditor in Missouri who was slandering the current auditor and myself and anyone who opposed him.  From your professional profile, I suspect that you are very professional and that you wouldn’t do anything of this nature.
Listen, the questions I have are simple:
1.)  Is this your twitter profile?
2.)  Do you know a William James Norris of Liberty, MO?
3.)  If you do know Mr. Norris, do you approve of him using your picture to defame your character?
I don’t want to get anyone in trouble, but, stuff like this has to stop.  I am currently reviewing all legal actions to pursue and I will hold anyone accountable for these actions.  Here is a link that should provide you with some help.
This has a page in which we found your picture and upon finding out that it was your picture, it was immediately changed.  I will be willing to cooperate with you regarding anything and am not asking for anything.  Just trying to get answers.  Thank you so much for your time.
Best Regards,
Christopher Till
