Politico: Paul may object to President Barack Obama’s surprise request to address a joint session of Congress

I hope he does it!!!

"Texas Rep. Ron Paul, a Republican candidate for the presidency, is considering whether to use his power as a House member to object to President Barack Obama’s surprise request to address a joint session of Congress at the same time as a long-planned Republican presidential debate on Sept. 7.

“Dr. Paul is weighing his options,” the veteran congressman’s spokesman, Jesse Benton, told POLITICO when asked whether Paul would object to a voice vote on a concurrent resolution allowing for the president to speak from the House chamber."

Huff Post - I Voted for Obama, Now I'm Voting for Ron Paul

Great article! I imagine we will find more and more of these types of articles being written.

by Anthony Anderson
I truly believe that I speak for so many young progressives that would be proponents for peace, clean food and water, and a government that actually helps and cares for its citizens.

After 8 years of GWB and the lies about WMDs, 9-11, Monsanto, Iraq...etc...anyone coming from the other party looked like a better choice. I was somehow still under the illusion that the Democratic Party would work for the people and not corporate/banking/defense industry interests.

I cried when Obama won. I really thought it was a new dawn for the US and the world as a whole. I was so ashamed of the Bush administration... all the violence and greed just made me ashamed to be from the US. Somehow though I still thought that there was a difference between the two parties.

Senator Paul Responds to Krueger Nomination

The latest press release from Senator Paul's office:

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Yesterday, President Obama nominated Princeton labor economist Alan Krueger to become the chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers. Sen. Rand Paul issued the following statement in response:

“Alan Krueger is nothing more than an extreme government interventionist, cut from the same cloth as those who have failed to correctly predict, diagnose, and manage our economic problem.

“During his tenure at the Treasury Department, Alan Krueger helped design the ‘cash for clunkers’ program and even supported a European style value-added tax that would raise prices on American families.

“This repetition of bad economic decisions by the President and his advisers could be described as the epitome of insanity – doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result each time. Hasn’t the President realized we don’t need more big-government Keynesians in Washington saddling the American taxpayer with trillions in debt?

“The President’s economic policies have been an abysmal failure. His economic advisers have helped lead to these failures.

“I have called for Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner to resign, and I am now calling on Alan Krueger to step down before he even begins his new role, before any more damage can be done to the American economy by this Administration.”

Ron Paul on 9/11 Anniversary: 'I don't think we've learned a whole lot'

By Michael O'Brien - 08/30/11 02:53 PM ET

The U.S. hasn't learned much in the 10 years since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) argued Tuesday.

Paul, the libertarian-minded Republican presidential candidate, voiced criticism of U.S. foreign policy just days before the tenth anniversary of the coordinated terrorist attacks that resulted in almost 3,000 deaths.

"I don't think we've learned a whole lot because our foreign policy hasn't changed," Paul told a guest host on Lou Dobbs's radio show.

Ron Paul: What It Takes To Win

What does it take to win?

Ron Paul spoke on this to supporters recently at the Florida Liberty Summit 2011

"There's two ways to define winning. To win liberty, a lot of people need to be more involved. It isn't a numbers problem. We don't need 51%, and the majority will rule, we don't say a majority is all we need. Rather, we need a determined minority; they must be thought leaders, they have to be involved, they have to lead others, and they have to be in positions of teaching, in the media and in different places. We have lost that fight because Keynesianism and Interventionism and our foreign policy have been the prevailing attitude. So whatever you can do to change the prevailing attitude as a leader. You are a unique group, absolutely unique, because most people either don't pay attention or they pay attention at the last minute before an election. So your responsibility is much different. The burden is on individuals like you because once you've discovered what's going on, and are confident about it, you have a greater moral obligation. You are not capable of just dismissing it, you can't dismiss yourself from the importance of this. If you understand it, you have this obligation to spread this message."

"People ask, 'What should I do?'"

"Do whatever you want. Do what you think is important. Everybody is an individual.

Is there a conspiracy against Ron Paul?

For the record I did not pick the above headline. The editor of the Culpeper Star-Exponent did. Regardless the attached column is my most widely shared in ever in social media and I have decided to post it here with a link to the original column.

I am not one for conspiracy theories. One of the important things I learned in my brief time in Washington D.C. is that it is very hard to keep a secret in politics. But in the wake of Ron Paul’s near victory (he lost by less than 1%) in the Iowa Straw Poll I had to fight the thought that there was a concerted effort among many to keep Ron Paul as far off the radar screen of Americans as possible.

It was truly bizarre. As a long time fan of Dr. Paul’s I long ago got used to the shabby treatment given to Paul by most of the media. But after the poll, media shabbiness was taken to a whole new level.

CNN and “Opinion Research Center” — The Numbers Don’t Add Up

My critique of the most recent CNN/ORC poll (released August 29).

In the “South” region, Ron Paul received 10% support among those polled. Given that it makes up such a notable portion of the total sample, this earns Ron Paul roughly 4.15% of the total vote in the sample, regardless of what respondents say in other regions. Yet, Paul receives just 6% of the total vote in the sample. Doing the quick calculation, this means that Paul must have received just 3.16% of the vote in the other 3 regions – West, Midwest, and Northeast – combined.

As far as differences between these regions are negated, that’s effectively a national poll with Paul receiving just above 3% of the vote. The last national poll in which he registered so low (without the presence of Giuliani)? An ABC News/Washington Post poll dated April 14-17, which had Paul at 2%, and a full 50% of respondents offering Other/None/Undecided.

Needless to say, this result falls well outside the expected range of Paul’s support across the rest of the country. In fact, the most recent Gallup poll (which had Paul at a 13%, admittedly on the high end of his polling range) showed that Ron Paul actually performed better in the West, Midwest, and Northeast than he did in the South...

Silence is Deafening

"The Drone President," Pat Buchanan called President Obama this morning.

It is a fitting title for a President who, without any consultation or authority granted by Congress has bombed at last count at least 4 countries (Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Libya) and perhaps elsewhere that for "national security reasons" Americans aren't privy too that information.

On MSNBC's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough ripped into the media for their deafening silence over Obama's unconstitutional, undeclared drone wars.

Libyan rebels "liberated" a prison last week.  It turns out, as many as 600 of those prisoners were "pro-Al-Qaeda militants," imprisoned by Qaddafi, but reports are that many of them may have tried, or actually did, fight against U.S. forces in Iraq.

This news appears to have been overlooked because of last week's Hurricane Irene coverage, keep this on your radar, it could be a sticky situation.

CNN has an article with a little more background on the prison and the released prisoners.

Hurricanes and Broken Windows

Surely, a natural disaster should never be cause for callous humor.  The combined cost of lives and livelihoods of those affected in such tragedies can often yield emotional and physical burdens for undue lengths of time.

Although Hurricane Irene failed to live up to the hype of early prognostications, the damage that did occur should not be overlooked and hopefully the inroads to recovery will be speedy and effective.

Having said that, this is an opportune time to expound upon the "broken window fallacy" as it pertains to current events.

Ron Paul Blows Past 2nd Quarter Fundraising Goal

Posted on July 1, 2011 by Paul Bear

Since I first posted the following article, ABC NEWS made a serious correction to their reporting. The Facebook page they cited is NOT affiliated with the official campaign, the campaign has NOT released an official count for the 2nd Quarter yet, and the fundraising total is NOT yet fully known. What IS known, is that the Ron Paul 2012 campaign blew past their originally set fundraising goals for the 2nd fiscal quarter, and that the final tally (including the donations that arrived by snail mail) will probably be greater than the “$4.5 Million” quoted by ABC News.

What I SHOULD have done, in hindsight, is to have added the campaign store without taking away the links to alternate providers.

Ron Paul: Will Libya Descend Into Anarchy?

This is one area where Ron Paul has a load of credibility. He actually served in the military so he has better grasp on the subject of sending someone’s kids to fight and possibly die.

Ron Paul: Bernanke Keeps Printing Money to steadily suck wealth out of the community and into the hands of a few people, a fact that bankers and most politicians stubbornly refuse to admit. Charging interest on money created out of nothing is, in the main, unjust and immoral, and Plato, Aristotle, Cicero, the Bible (Deuteronomy 23:19), the Koran (2:275-278), the Catholic Church, many codes of law and most writers on morals have condemned it for more than two thousand years. The historical name for this evil is usury. Nevertheless bankers enjoy peace of mind because they know that the public thinks they merely lend out the savings of their depositors. In fact, banks create more than 95 percent of all deposits, for when a bank creates a loan it simultaneously creates a deposit. What banks do to justify the accusation of being economic parasites is to lend out interest-bearing money of their own creation using a very thin sliver of legal tender (cash) to back it up.

How did the banks gain this oppressive power of charging interest on mere computer entries? Very simply they lobbied and hoodwinked our politicians into giving it to them. Before World War II cash reserves of 1:10 had been the norm in practice. This meant that if you deposited $100 of cash in a bank, the banking system (though not that one bank) would eventually use that $100 to create up to $900 of credit. That credit shows up in their books as $900 of interest-bearing loans (assets), and $900 of deposits (liabilities). Note that credit is not cash

Foxs News Front Page - Paul: Bernanke Is Out of Options to Save Economy

Chairman Ben Bernanke is not calling for another fix to the economy by the Federal Reserve because he's already used up all the quivers in the Fed's bow, Rep. Ron Paul said Sunday.

Paul is a 2012 Republican presidential candidate and supports the U.S. returning to the gold standard to protect its currency and force a balanced budget. He has been highly critical of the Federal Reserve and its chairman over plans for "quantitative easing," a two-part program which flooded the market with dollars in an attempt to make money more available for borrowing and lending.

Paul argued that Bernanke's plan to buy bank assets and drop more than $2 trillion into the economy did not yield the results the chairman hoped, a conclusion that Paul says Bernanke implicitly acknowledged during a speech last week in which he offered no new bailout programs from the Fed.

Lord and Levin Welcome Ron Paul to the Top Tier

Punctuated by his move past Michele Bachmann to third in the race for the Republican nomination for president, Ron Paul has arrived in the "top tier.” While this is a significant positive for his supporters, it does not mean that opposition to Paul from within the party will diminish. On the contrary, now that it is undeniable that he really could win the nomination, Paul’s supporters should expect attacks from the opposition to intensify. They have.

Beginning with a piece in the American Spectator by Jeffrey Lord, conservative opponents of Paul have fired the first shots in what from here on out will probably be an all-out bombardment of Paul and his platform. I say “Paul and his platform” because along with substantive criticism of his positions, one should expect a generous amount of ad hominem directed at Paul himself. Judging from the Lord piece and Mark Levin’s replies in weighing in on the matter, one can expect even more mudslinging than usual.

That is not to single out Lord or Levin as particularly unique in this regard. Mudslinging or “muckraking” has been a part of American politics since the earliest days of the republic. Contrary to what many Americans seem to believe, there never was a “golden age” of American journalism where reporters objectively reported the facts and avoided all political bias. In fact, early American newspapers were not only unapologetically biased; they were unconcerned about even the veracity of the mud they slung. During the election of 1800, John Adams was reported to have “ordered Charles Cotesworth Pinckney to London to procure four pretty mistresses to divide between them.” [1] Adams laughed off this completely false accusation, saying that Pinckney must have kept them all to himself.

Santorum, Paul spar over Sept. 11

Josh Hafner | Aug 28, 2011
Des Moines Register

Rick Santorum pounced on fellow GOP candidate Ron Paul’s assertion that U.S. intervention in the Middle East helped motivate the 9/11 attacks, saying in an email to The Des Moines Register on Sunday that the Texas congressman’s argument is flawed and belittling to victims of the tragedy.

“To imply that we were the catalyst of the attack on 9/11 disparages the memory of those who lost their lives on that tragic day and is an insult to who we are as a people,” said Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator. “Congressman Paul’s understanding of the enemy and why they have attacked us is shockingly misguided.”

This marks at least the second time Santorum has sparred with Paul over Middle Eastern policy this month. In a heated exchange at the Ames GOP debate, Santorum said Iran seeks to destabilize the region. Paul called Santorum’s words “propaganda.”
