  • Gov. Chris Christie is touting Grover Norquist's support of 23-cent-per-gallon gas tax hike

    TRENTON, New Jersey — Republican Gov. Chris Christie on Wednesday touted an anti-tax crusader's endorsement of a proposed 23-cent- per-gallon gasoline tax hike along with a sales tax cut, sweeping aside objections raised by Democratic leaders in the state Senate and voicing confidence that the measure would be passed in that chamber. Christie all but dared lawmakers not to act on his plan during a statehouse news conference, a day after the Assembly passed the plan to pay for a $2 billion a year transportation trust fund for eight years. The fund runs out of borrowing authority Friday, and Christie's...
  • Iran-Backed Militants Storm US Embassy in Yemen, Seize Hostages and Equipment

    The State Department is working to secure the release of several hostages taken by Iran-backed terrorists after they stormed the U.S. embassy facility in Sana'a, Yemen, U.S. officials told the Washington Free Beacon early Thursday. A group of Houthi rebels reportedly stormed the U.S. compound on Wednesday seeking "large quantities of equipment and materials," according to regional reports translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute. The raid comes just five days after the Houthis kidnapped Yemeni nationals who work for the U.S. embassy. The State Department confirmed to the Free Beacon that the Yemeni staffers are being held hostage...

    Houthi rebels have stormed the American embassy in Yemen and taken hostages, the Washington Free Beacon reported Thursday. State Department officials told the Free Beacon that “the majority of the detained have been released, but the Houthis continue to detain additional Yemeni employees of the embassy.” Houthi fighters reportedly took the compound on Wednesday, demanding “large quantities of equipment and materials,” per the Middle East Media Research Institute. Yemen has been embroiled in a brutal civil war between the Houthi rebels — who are backed, financed, and armed by the Iranian government —and the standing Yemeni government, which has the...

    Isn’t great that America is back and the adults are back in charge? America is back, all right: all the way back to 1979, the last time we had a president so weak that enemies of the United States stormed one of our embassies and took hostages. On Thursday, the Yemeni media outlet Al-Masdar Online reported that Houthi jihadis in Yemen, which are backed by the Islamic Republic of Iran, stormed our embassy in Sana’a, seizing “large quantities of equipment and materials.” Just days before that, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), they “kidnapped three Yemeni nationals...

    Newsweek ^ | 21 November 2021 | Ron Paul
    n 2010, then-chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mike Mullen called the national debt "the greatest national security threat facing our nation." At the time, the national debt was around $13 trillion. Eleven years later, the national debt exceeds $29 trillion—that's bigger than the gross domestic product of the United States! Yet almost no one in Washington is at all serious about cutting spending. The Democratic Party is so devoted to massive spending increases that those Democrats who "only" want to spend $1.75 trillion on the so-called Build Back Better Plan are considered "fiscal conservatives." Republicans may vote...
  • Ron Paul: Great News... Biden’s Vaccine Mandate is Falling Apart!

    Ron Paul Institute ^ | Nov 8 | Ron Paul
    The Biden vaccine mandate appears to be falling apart before it’s even in place. From first responders to truck drivers to everyone in-between, the message is clear: many thousands are willing to be fired from their jobs rather than be forced to take a medical procedure they do not want. They have leverage and they are using it. We should support them. Grocery shelves are bare, shipping containers continue to float offshore, firehouses in New York are shut down, the Los Angeles County Sheriff warns that, in the middle of a crime wave, half of his deputies may quit or...
  • Ron Paul sounds alarm on “unique patient identifier” that would undermine right to privacy

    In a column called the Ron Paul Weekly Column, published by the Ron Paul Institute, the former House Representative from Texas warned about the “unique patient identifier.” According to Dr. Paul, the policy will “destroy what remains of our medical privacy.” In both the Senate and the House, there are bills that, on passing, will remove a provision prohibiting the creation of a “unique patient identifier.” The law preventing the creation of the unique patient identifier, sponsored by Dr. Paul, was passed in 1998. Proponents of the system argue that it would make it easy to track and verify the...

    People in the socialist left ruled State of Victoria live in fear of police violence and a corrupt court system backing them up. They threw Cardinal George Pell, the number 4 man in the Vatican under both conservative Benedict and ultra-liberal Francis, into jail for over 400 days in a judgement overturned 7 to 0 by the High Court. I live in fear. And in hope that conservative proudly revivalist Christian Prime Minister Scott Morrison (ScoMo) will stand up against them and defend human rights ( and human life. Just as Americans can be proud of the consistent stand...

    Libertytree ^ | August 16 | Sen. Rand Paul
    After America was attacked by al-Qaeda on September 11, 2001, my father, Republican Congressman Ron Paul, voted for a U.S. strike on the Taliban in Afghanistan for harboring the 9/11 terrorists. We were attacked, so we struck back. This is the reason we have and need a strong military: Actual national defense. But our military is not meant for nation building. Not for policing the world. Not for imposing democracy in places that have never known it. Not only are these bad ideas, but they aren’t the point of our military and they do nothing for our national defense. Unfortunately,...

    This weekend the US experienced another “Saigon moment,” this time in Afghanistan. After a 20 year war that drained trillions from Americans’ pockets, the capital of Afghanistan fell without a fight. The corrupt Potemkin regime that the US had been propping up for two decades and the Afghan military that we had spent billions training just melted away. The rush is on now to find somebody to blame for the chaos in Afghanistan. Many of the “experts” doing the finger-pointing are the ones most to blame. Politicians and pundits who played cheerleader for this war for two decades are now...

    Ron Paul: “Madam Speaker, I have a few questions for my colleagues. What if our foreign policy of the past century is deeply flawed and has not served our national security interest? What if we wake up one day and realize that the terrorist threat is the predictable consequence of our meddling in the affairs of others, and has nothing to do with us being free and prosperous? What if propping up repressive regimes in the Middle East endangers both the United States and Israel? What if occupying countries like Iraq and Afghanistan and bombing Pakistan is directly related to...

    When you run down the list of issues the Oath Keepers are worried about, it reads a lot like a bill of particulars from the American Civil Liberties Union. The Oath Keepers don't like warrantless searches. They're upset that the executive branch has claimed the power to classify American citizens as enemy combatants, detain them indefinitely, and try them before military tribunals. They worry that a large-scale terrorist attack similar to 9/11 could lead to the mass detention of Arabs or Muslims, just as Japanese Americans were detained during World War II. They worry about crackdowns on political speech, protest,...

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—A miracle occurred today at the offices of the Internal Revenue Service as former Representative Ron Paul began marching around the building blowing a shofar, causing the walls of the building to begin tumbling down. Paul gathered a group of libertarians and began marching around the building, completing seven laps around the building. When they had finished, they all blew trumpets and gave a loud shout. Many began singing Rush songs like "Anthem" and "Freewill." IRS guards posted outside the building simply laughed, but a stoic Paul stood firmly and waited. Sure enough, a few moments later, the ground...

    Andrew Torba revealed that Jared Kushner would not allow President Trump onto Gab unless the free speech platform banned criticism of Jewish people and Israel. Torba, the CEO of Gab, spoke to Lauren Witzke of TruNews on Tuesday, and discussed his attempts to bring President Trump onto his free speech social network after he was “totally nuked from the entire mainstream internet” in January this year. “All I wanted to do was to give him his voice back, because there’s a hundred million people or more that want to hear what he has to say,” Torba told Witzke, but as...

    some Congress members get their way, the Federal Reserve may soon be able to track many of your purchases in real time and share that information with government agencies. This is just one of the problems with the proposed “digital dollar” or “fedcoin.” Fedcoin was initially included in the first coronavirus spending bill. While the proposal was dropped from the final version of the bill, there is still great interest in fedcoin on Capitol Hill. Some progressives have embraced fedcoin as a way to provide Americans with a “universal basic income.” Both the Senate Banking Committee and the House Financial...

    Former Texas congressman Ron Paul says he’s been blocked from using his Facebook page for unspecified violations of “community standards” as Big Tech purges users following last week’s Capitol riot. Paul, a libertarian leader and critic of President Trump, tweeted a screenshot of his temporarily restricted Facebook page. “With no explanation other than ‘repeatedly going against our community standards,’ @Facebook has blocked me from managing my page. Never have we received notice of violating community standards in the past and nowhere is the offending post identified,” Paul tweeted. His most recent post linked to an article he wrote denouncing “shocking...
