Next President of the United Fates of America
Quote:Apple has told Republican leaders it will not provide funding or other support for the party’s 2016 presidential convention, as it's done in the past, citing Donald Trump’s controversial comments about women, immigrants and minorities.

Unlike Facebook, Google and Microsoft, which have all said they will provide some support to the GOP event in Cleveland next month, Apple decided against donating technology or cash to the effort, according to two sources familiar with the iPhone maker’s plans.

Quote:China remains an authoritarian state, one that systematically curbs fundamental rights, including freedom of expression, association, assembly, and religion, when their exercise is perceived to threaten one-party rule.  Since a new leadership assumed power in March 2013, authorities have undertaken positive steps in certain areas, including abolishing the arbitrary detention system known as Re-education through Labor (RTL), announcing limited reforms of the hukou system of household registration that has denied social services to China’s internal migrants, and giving slightly greater access for persons with disabilities to the all-important university entrance exam.
Quote:Falun Gong or Falun Dafa (literally, "Dharma Wheel Practice" or "Law Wheel Practice") is a Chinese spiritual practice that combines meditation and qigong exercises with a moral philosophy centered on the tenets of truthfulness, compassion, and forbearance (Chinese: 真、善、忍). The practice emphasizes morality and the cultivation of virtue, and identifies as a qigong practice of the Buddhist school, though its teachings also incorporate elements drawn from Taoist traditions. Through moral rectitude and the practice of meditation, practitioners of Falun Gong aspire to eliminate attachments, and ultimately to achieve spiritual enlightenment.
Falun Gong was first taught publicly in Northeast China in 1992 by Li Hongzhi. It emerged toward the end of China's "qigong boom"—a period which saw the proliferation of similar practices of meditation, slow-moving exercises and regulated breathing. It differs from other qigong schools in its absence of fees or formal membership, lack of daily rituals of worship, its greater emphasis on morality, and the theological nature of its teachings. Western academics have described Falun Gong as a qigong discipline, a "spiritual movement", a "cultivation system" in the tradition of Chinese antiquity, or as a form of Chinese religion.
Although the practice initially enjoyed considerable support from Chinese officialdom, by the mid- to late-1990s, the Communist Party and public security organizations increasingly viewed Falun Gong as a potential threat due to its size, independence from the state, and spiritual teachings. By 1999, government estimates placed the number of Falun Gong practitioners at 70 million.[1] Tensions culminated in April 1999, when over 10,000 Falun Gong practitioners gathered peacefully near the central government compound in Beijing to request legal recognition and freedom from state interference. This demonstration is widely seen as catalyzing the persecution that followed.
On 20 July 1999, the Communist Party leadership initiated a nationwide crackdown and multifaceted propaganda campaign intended to eradicate the practice. It blocked Internet access to websites that mention Falun Gong, and in October 1999 it declared Falun Gong a "heretical organization" that threatened social stability. Falun Gong practitioners in China are reportedly subject to a wide range of human rights abuses: hundreds of thousands are estimated to have been imprisoned extrajudicially,[2] and practitioners in detention are subject to forced labor, psychiatric abuse, torture, and other coercive methods of thought reform at the hands of Chinese authorities.[3] As of 2009, human rights groups estimated that at least 2,000 Falun Gong practitioners had died as a result of abuse in custody.[4] Some observers put the number much higher, and report that tens of thousands may have been killed to supply China's organ transplant industry.[5][6] In the years since the persecution began, Falun Gong practitioners have become active in advocating for greater human rights in China.
Falun Gong founder Li Hongzhi has lived in the United States since 1996, and Falun Gong has a sizable global constituency. Inside China, estimates suggest that tens of millions continued to practice Falun Gong in spite of the persecution.[7][8][9] Hundreds of thousands are estimated to practice Falun Gong outside China in over 70 countries worldwide.[10][11]

Quote:May 20, 2016—Dr. Ron Paul and Daniel McAdams used the latest Liberty Report video to discuss the criticism the TSA has been receiving over the long security check lines.
Dr. Ron Paul kicks off the video with the following:
Quote:“The subject [today] is in the news, very much. It’s an aggravating thought for anybody who’s ever been on [an] airplane or contemplates getting on an airplane, [and] that has to do with the TSA and the long lines.
[Image: tsalines.jpg?w=548&h=308]Everybody knew they were inefficient but somebody had the temerity to actually take a picture of a line it was described as miles long. I guess when you do all that zigzagging it’s very, very long. And the exasperation…
The record for the TSA actually protecting us and saving us from any terrorist attack so far, I think they are not doing so well. They haven’t come up with any great successes and we’ll talk about their failures and what we need to do about it, but this problem has been here with us since it was created, you know, quickly after 9/11 just like the Patriot Act was passed quickly and the law was available with a little tinkering, and we passed the Patriot Act under this very difficult condition. So, once again, I remember the debate very clearly on the House floor, ‘we have to have the TSA, if you don’t [want it], you don’t care about safety, you don’t care about the people, you don’t care about [the fact] we’ve been attacked!’
And, of course, we fought it, but we weren’t very successful because the whole argument was, if we need a little bit more security in our airlines, obviously we do, should we continue to depend on the federal government?
They were already in charge, FAA was in charge of the security that we did have, because the airlines didn’t want it, they didn’t want to have to have the liability so the big argument was, ‘well, what we need to do’ of course, from the left and the right, we had a Republican president, and that is this massively increase, of not the FAA, but a new Department of Transportation. … And of course that’s the way it went and there, the debate was really: Is there really any reason why we might not be able to, at least discuss privatization versus unionization and government bureaucracy? And I think you know the conclusion of what happened, we didn’t win the argument.”
McAdams reminded Dr. Paul that many people seem to forget how many government agencies failed in keeping us safe at the time the 9/11 terrorist attacks happened:
Quote:“Nobody wants to talk about this part. The terrorist attacks on 9/11, the government was already in charge, we already had a CIA, the cost is $100 billion a year, we already had the NSA, the FBI, and all these organizations that failed, and now we know how many times they failed.”
Watch the whole discussion for Ron Paul’s personal TSA horror stories:
