    the US ran guns from Benghazi to Syria before the attack on the US consulate on September 11, 2012. The US Ambassador to Libya and three others were killed in the terrorist attack. FOX News reported Monday that the US was sending guns to Banias and Borj Islam, Syria before the Benghazi terrorist attack. ... Senator Rand Paul questioned Hillary Clinton about this gun running program back in January 2013 during her testimony on the Benghazi terrorist attack. Hillary Clinton said she did not know about the program while testifying under oath.

Both cautious of the country's surveillance apparatus. Both say police officers should scale back. Both okaywith same-sex marriage. Differences: Basic beliefs about the role of government Sanders doesn't necessarily have a problem with the government getting involved in things hence "socialist" and Paul generallydoes hence "libertarian."

    Candidates from across the country are running against Washington these days but none so aggressively -- or effectively -- as ophthalmologist Rand Paul.Paul's latest anti-Washington volley comes in the form of an ad portraying the nation's capitol as a multi-armed monster seeking to consume private industry. (The cartoon image resembles nothing more than Doctor Octopus -- "Doc Ock" -- from the "Spiderman" series. And, yes, we are aware of how dorky making that comparison is.)"Big government is extending its grasp, scooping up Wall Street banks and business....our health care," says the ad's narrator.Anger directed at the federal government at the...

    Ask Richard Gage how he came to become obsessed with what he calls the truth about 9/11, and you hear what sounds an awful lot like a story of religious conversion. It was March 2006, and the mild-mannered California architect was driving down the Pacific Coast Highway on his way to a construction meeting. Bored, he flipped on KPFA 94.1 FM, a listener-supported free-speech station out of Berkeley to hear what the communists were talking about, as he later told me in a 2009 interview. Up to that point in his life, Gage had been a staunch Ronald Reagan...

    Elections are about choices, and in the GOP primary on May 18th the choice for republicans should be Rand Paul. Here are ten of the top reasons why: 1. Americans have grown justifiably weary of politics as usual. In 2008 an emerging sentiment in our nation helped propel a man into the Presidency in large part because he gave people hope that he would change the way things were going to be done in Washington DC. He didn't, and now Obamas popularity has plummeted. Yet ever since his campaign ended, the cry for change has grown louder, and has spread...

I'm worried [Iran] is twice as strong as it was before the Iraq War. [Rand Paul] I'm no dove. But I must admit: Rand Paul has a point.

    Republican Sen. Rand Paul is standing by his statement that most vaccinations should be "voluntary," telling CNBC that a parent's choice not to vaccinate a child is "an issue of freedom." In an interview with the network Monday, Paul said that vaccines are "a good thing" but that parents "should have some input" into whether or not their children must get them. And he gave credence to the idea - disputed by the majority of the scientific community - that vaccination can lead to mental disabilities.

    Sen. Rand Pauls campaign for the presidency is not more than a few days old and already his mercurial father, former Rep. Ron Paul, himself a former presidential candidate, is starting to make trouble for his son. According to a Saturday story in the Houston Chronicle, the elder Paul called the famous letter that 47 Republican senators, including the younger Paul, sent to the Iranian mullahs a joke. The letter informed the Iranian leadership that any agreement that they reached with President Obama concerning Irans nuclear bomb program would not outlast the Obama presidency lacking congressional ratification.

    And now for a lighter moment from last night’s debate, or at least the weirdest moment. Jim Hoft calls this Ron Paul’s Checkpoint Charlie moment, but it’s really more like an apex of Paul’s paranoid band of libertarianism. In this exchange, Paul opposes building a border fence because he doesn’t believe it represents American values, which is a fair enough argument that one usually hears from Democrats. He then tips over into hilarity when he suggests that the US government might use it to stop Americans from fleeing to, er, Mexico:CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO I immediately noted on...

A barbed wire fence with machine guns, that would do the trick. I dont believe that is what America is all about. Every time you think about this toughness on the border and ID cards and REAL IDs, think its a penalty against the American people too. I think this fence business is designed and may well be used against us and keep us in. In economic turmoil, the people...

    The Anti-Defamation League condemned Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan as the leading anti-Semite in America after a speech in which he blamed Israelis and Zionist Jews for the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. At a time when anti-Semitic attitudes are at historic lows, Farrakhans unabashed promotion of anti-Semitism is a throwback to the intolerance of another era, ADL National Director Abraham Foxman said in a statement issued Thursday. Farrakhan, who has a long history of anti-Semitic remarks, delivered his speech Sunday in Chicago as part of his Saviors Day 2015 sermon. It is now becoming apparent that there...

In an effort to inject some balance of opinion, not to mention pure sanity, into the ongoing debate over what happened to Malaysian Flight MH17, Ron Paul is convinced the US government is withholding information on the catastrophe. "The US government has grown strangely quiet on the accusation that it was Russia or her allies that brought down the Malaysian airliner with a...

Speaking Monday afternoon with CNBC, Paul: 1) Reiterated his contention that vaccines should be voluntary. 2) Said this: "I have heard of many tragic cases of walking, talking, normal children who wound up with profound mental disorders after vaccines." (Michele Bachmann said something similar during the 2012 presidential campaign. It didn't go over well.) 3) Actually shushed the anchor when he thought she wasn't allowing him to answer her questions.

    The US didn’t create ISIS, but it did create Noam Chomsky by funding him and hoping that he had some useful insights into linguistics. Instead his only insight was into following up on the earlier work of his colleague Goebbels. The appearance of ISIS and the general spread of radical jihadism is a fairly natural outgrowth of Washington wielding its sledgehammer at the fragile society of Iraq, which was barely hanging together after a decade of US-UK sanctions so onerous that the respected international diplomats who administered them via the UN both resigned in protest, charging that they were “genocidal.”...

The horrors of 9/11 were still fresh on the the minds of Americans.

The plane didn't even crash in that Shanksville, Penn., field, he says, but instead landed safely in Cleveland. And not only that. As Avery sees it, the true 9/11 attackers brought down the World Trade Center in a controlled demolition, most likely to get at $160 billion in gold bars he believes were buried under the towers.

    The views in the video aren’t surprising. CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO They’re the views of Ron and Rand Paul and their intellectual milieu which believes that most wars are set up by banks. According to them, the US need not have gotten involved in WW2. “There are times when sanctions have made it worse. I mean, there are times .. leading up to World War II we cut off trade with Japan. That probably caused Japan to react angrily. We also had a blockade on Germany after World War I, which may have encouraged them … some...

    NEW YORK The biggest parlor game on Wall Street and in corporate boardrooms these days is guessing whether former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will run for president and save the GOPs old establishment base from its rising populist wing. The second most popular game is guessing what happens if Jeb says no. Two dozen interviews about the 2016 race with unaligned GOP donors, financial executives and their Washington lobbyists turned up a consistent and unusual consolation candidate if Bush demurs, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie doesnt recover politically and no other establishment favorite gets nominated: Hillary Clinton....

    Washington Independent ^ | 8 Dec 10 | Patrick Caldwell
    U.S. Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) was one of only four House Republicans to break rank from the party and request earmarks despite a Republican Conference earmark moratorium. Paul sent 41 earmark requests totaling $157,093,544 for the 2011 Fiscal Year. His largest single request was $19,500,000 for a naval training ship at the Texas Maritime Academy in Galveston, followed by a $18,126,000 to provide maintenance on the Matagorda Ship Channel. For Fiscal Year 2010, Paul requested 54 total earmarks, adding up to $398,460,640 in pork that the former presidential candidate sought to bring home to his district. These requests were made...

    Ron Paul, the Texas congressman who is the darling of the Libertarian Right, has more earmarks in the pork-laden $410-billion spending bill than any other Republican. That's not according to the MSM, or the liberal blogosphere. That's what Fox News is reporting. In an interview Tuesday night with Fox News' Neil Cavuto, Paul not only defended his own earmarks, he argued that every penny in the federal budget should be earmarked, to improve transparency. Paul, a fiscal watchdog who said he voted against the bill because he believes federal spending is out of control, acknowledged that $73 million in the...

    By Susan Davis NEW ORLEANSRepublicans and tea party activists are fond of accusing President Barack Obama of being a socialist, but today party gadfly Ron Paul said they had it wrong. In the technical sense, in the economic definition, he is not a socialist, the Texas Republican said to a smattering of applause at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference. Hes a corporatist, Paul quickly added, meaning the president takes care of corporations and corporations take over and run the country.

    Lately many have characterized this administration as socialist, or having strong socialist leanings. I differ with this characterization. This is not to say Mr. Obama believes in free-markets by any means. On the contrary, he has done and said much that demonstrates his fundamental misunderstanding and hostility towards the truly free market. But a closer, honest examination of his policies and actions in office reveals that, much like the previous administration, he is very much a corporatist. This in many ways can be more insidious and worse than being an outright socialist. Socialism is a system where the government directly...

    The question has been raised about whether or not our president is a socialist, Paul said. I am sure there are some people here who believe it. But in the technical sense, in the economic definition of a what a socialist is, no, hes not a socialist. Hes a corporatist, Paul continued. And unfortunately we have corporatists inside the Republican party and that means you take care of corporations and corporations take over and run the country. Paul said examples of President Obamas corporatism were evident in the heath care reform bill he signed into law last month. He said...

  • Ron Paul: Obama Hiding Big Govt. Ambitions

    ABC News ^ | 1-21-09 | Teddy Davis
    Former Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul has recorded a YouTube video warning libertarian-minded Americans that Barack Obama's inaugural address amounted to an effort to camouflage his big government ambitions. "If you are honest with oneself," said Paul, "you have to say, 'I'm for more government.' Or: 'I'm for less government.' But he would like to avoid trying to be blunt and saying, 'I'm for a lot more government.'" Watch it here. Paul, a Texas congressman who raised $35 million during last year's presidential run, says that if Obama's views on government are not "socialism," they are "fascistic." During Tuesday's inaugural...

    Por favor disculpen mi Espanol. Como creCI en Houston -es un poco ‘espanglish y un poco Tex Mex. I lived, worked, played and grew up alongside Latinos. As a teenager I worked alongside immigrants mowing lawns and putting in landscaping around businesses. I remember once asking one of the immigrant workers how much he was being paid. “Cuanto le Pagan por el trabajo? He responded “tres dolars.” I responded, “Yo tambien. Tres Dolars, por hora . . . ?” He shook shook his head, “No tres Dolars, por dia!” At a young age, I came to understand that it makes...
