    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told Breitbart News he will honor his pledge to support the presumptive 2016 GOP presidential nominee, Donald Trump, in the general election against former Secretary of State Hillary Clintonthe likely Democratic nomineein November. Paul, along with every other 2016 GOP presidential candidate, signed a pledge that they would back the nominee in the general election. I took a pledge when I ran for president to not run as an independent candidate and to support the Republican nominee, Paul said. I stand by that pledge, and I think that anybody who signs their word to a document...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan has no issue with a national NBC News/SurveyMonkey poll released Tuesday that indicates that more Republican and Republican-leaning voters trust Donald Trump to lead the party than Ryan. I hope its Donald Trump. Hes getting the nomination, Ryan told reporters Tuesday in a clip aired by MSNBC. Hes wrapping up the nomination. Donald Trump has a lot to learn from Paul Ryan and Ryan has a lot to learn from Trump. Nearly six in 10 Republicans and leaners said they trusted Trump, the partys presumptive presidential nominee, more to lead the GOP, compared to 39...

    Democracy Now! ^ | Aug 29, 2012 | Democracy Now!
    DemocracyNow.org - Controversy erupted on the convention floor when a dispute broke out over whether to seat the delegates of presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul of Texas. Part of Maine's delegation stormed off the floor in protest of a decision to strip away half of Paul's delegates. Supportive members of other delegations rose to their feet and hollered their objections, angered by new rules that they say they will make it harder for grassroots candidates to stand a chance in future elections. Democracy Now! producer Deena Guzder was on the scene and filed this report.
  • Paladino: Anyone interested in primary to defeat Elise Stefanik?

    Buffalo businessman Carl Paladino is circulating a call for primary challengers to Rep. Elise Stefanik, a North Country Republican who is heading into her first re-election bid. In an email sent to supporters Wednesday, Paladino called Stefanik a RINO Washington elitist establishment sell-out. Ron, we are done with Elise, he wrote in response to an email from Ronald Deeley, a conservative activist from the western side of Stefaniks district. She drinks the cool aid (sic). Clearly shes a fraud.

    While Donald Trump is dominating the GOP field in national polls, you wouldnt know it from his tepid support in Wisconsin, which may be as resistant as any place in America to the lure of Trump-mania. About one in five Wisconsin Republicans supported Trump in the past two statewide surveys by the Marquette University Law School. That compares to the high 20s, 30s and even low 40s that Trump has drawn this fall in other states and nationally.

    Presidential hopeful Marco Rubio is downplaying his perfomance in the four states that held GOP caucuses or primaries on Saturday, saying that he had had long known this would be the roughest period of the campaign. Speaking primarily in Spanish at a press conference in Puerto Rico, where voters will head to the polls on Sunday, the Florida senator noted that the contests in Kansas, Maine, Kentucky and Louisiana are proportional, saying hell leave them with more delegates than he started with. Rubio is eyeing his home state, which will vote on March 15, as the turning point for his...

    Donald Trump personifies the Liberty Movements finest anti-establishment spirit. He is the only rational choice left in the presidential race for those of us who hold liberty dear. Just like Ron Paul, Donald Trump loves America and Americans, and we find it fascinating that he arrived at many of the same positions as Ron Paul not by extrapolating them from libertarian principles but by applying his ample business experience and sheer human decency. Most importantly 1. Donald Trump is a diplomat, a dealmaker and a non-interventionist. He wants to make the military so strong that we never have to use...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan said Tuesday the rise of Donald Trump can be explained by voters being fed-up that America is on the wrong track. Ryan blamed the progressive policies of President Barack Obama. "You have conservatives, like myself, ... who are very upset about the direction of the country," Ryan told "Squawk Box" on CNBC. "You have people in America panicked because they have economic anxiety." As House speaker, Ryan is not supporting any one candidate as the nomination contests continue.

    Photos and more than 350 "intense" letters from Pope John Paul II to a married woman he corresponded with for more than three decades have been found at the National Library of Poland, Deutsche Welle reports, via a BBC documentary. The notes and images—often showing the pontiff, who was made a saint in 2014, in casual wear—reveal a friendship between himself and American philosopher Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka that included holidays spent together and an intimate relationship that historians are trying to figure out. "Here is one of the handful of transcendentally great figures in public life in the 20th century, the...

    The night could have gone worse for the GOP establishment-but I'm not really sure how. Not only did Donald Trump win an overwhelming victory in New Hampshire, but the establishment lane of viable candidates got more crowded than it had been going in. And remember that since the current primary calendar was inaugurated in 1976, no GOP nominee has ever emerged without winning Iowa or New Hampshire. In case you haven't been paying attention, that means that, if history is a guide, the GOP is likely going to be choosing between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz as a nominee, which...

    Echoing the recent sentiments of Steve Forbes, this week Republican presidential contender Ted Cruz told a group in New Hampshire: "Money is ... a unit of measurement. So, the reason why we see these rapid oscillations in commodities markets, it's because of unstable currencies. And it's why I think we should look at going toward rules-based money supply, ideally tied to gold, so you have stability." Perhaps this will trigger another flood of disagreement in the mainstream press, such as the recent New York Times item which reported that 40 out of 40 "leading economists" said that a gold standard...

    Two Republican presidential candidates -- Sens. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Rand Paul, R-Ky. -- have proposed replacing much of the federal tax system with a VAT.

Both VATs would be administered through the subtraction method rather than the credit invoice method used by most countries with VATs. ...

Enough is enough.  If Carson wants to talk about the depths of deception and dishonesty he should “start looking at the man in the mirror.”I was born and bred...

Ted Cruz and Rand Paul have endorsed flat-tax plans that, for full disclosure, were designed by Arthur Laffer and myself. These plans have drawn some criticism from the Right of late, though these attacks are...

    The liberty movement must help elect Senator Ted Cruz the next President of the United States. Many of us in the liberty movement saw the handwriting on the wall some time ago, as far as the Rand Paul campaign was concerned. He came in a distant fifth in Iowa, a state many thought he would win a year ago. His polling looked bleak in the other early states, and he was short on resources. He likely could have gone on, but instead, suspended his campaign Wednesday morning. He'll focus on securing re-election to the Senate, which he should easily accomplish....

    I think we now know why Ben Carson and his campaign are making such a fuss over Ted Cruz’s campaign. The Cruz camp took advantage of the Carson campaign’s misstep in Iowa. The Carson campaign generated headlines that Carson was packing it up after Iowa and heading back to Florida.

    he establishment media and Iowa Caucus losers Donald Trump, Ben Carson and Marco Rubio have been savaging Ted Cruz and his campaign team for the tactics that helped Senator Cruz win the Hawkeye State's first-in-the-nation election contest. But we think that Republicans, and especially conservatives, should celebrate the fact that they have a candidate and a campaign team in the race that are smart, technologically savvy, in the moment, right on the issues and ruthless enough to use every issue and advantage they can identify to win. First, let's knockdown the ludicrous charge by Donald Trump (repeated to our disappointment...
