    Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul reportedly won the U.S. Virgin Island caucuses Saturday, although it was reported rival Mitt Romney secured the victory. According to the U.S. Virgin Islands’ Republican Party results, Mr. Paul won with 29 percent of the votes, followed by Mr. Romney at 26 percent. Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum placed in third with six percent, followed by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich at three percent of the votes. In contrast, The Associated Press and several other major media outlets reported Mr. Romney as the winner of the Virgin Island caucuses, because he actually comes away from...
  • A Vote For Ron Paul Is A Vote For The Left

    Some of my regular readers will wonder why I'm wasting my time with Ron Paul. After all, ol' RuPaul is nothing but a piker, and our eyes should be on the prize--- the White House in 2012. This would be a fair assessment----if one only looks at the small picture. I am fighting for the soul of the Conservative Movement. I'm heading off RuPaul and his cyberstormtroopers at the pass before they irrevocably damage the Movement. If the Conservative Movement is destroyed, all hope is lost. The Republic will not survive. It's that simple. It's that cut and dried.

    Canada Free Press ^ | March 12, 2012 | A.J. Cameron
    Just as those in union leadership cavalierly and ruthlessly use their rank and file members as tools for their own empowerment and enrichment, the GOP elite prey upon their base for power and wealth at the expense of the American taxpaying citizen. Congress has become an elite society of male and female Willie Sutton (prolific U. S. bank robber) imitators, because that is where the money and power in American Politics is. The Mafia must be jealous of how those in Congress have co-opted and corrupted the legislative branch of our Federal government into their own syndicate.

    National Review Online ^ | 10 March 2012 | Andrew C. McCarthy
    "We will hold sacred the beliefs held sacred by others.” That’s the concluding rally cry of the U.S. Department of Defense’s newly issued guidance on the “Proper Handling and Disposal of Islamic Religious Materials — Service Members/Civilian Training.” Here’s how it works: Mainstream Muslims throughout the Middle East believe, based on the Koran and other “Islamic Religious Materials,” that if an infidel force invades a Muslim territory, its members must be killed until the force has been driven out. They further believe that if non-Muslims commit some act — even an inadvertent one — that Muslims perceive as insulting to...

    Anytime Ron Paul sits across from Ben Bernanke you know sparks will fly. Sure enough, they did: starting 50 seconds into the clip below, Ron Paul, guns blazing, asks the Chairman if he does his own shopping, if he is aware of what true inflation is, and if he knows that Americans don't trust the government because they are being lied to about inflation. And it only gets better, once Paul starts brandishing a silver coin. The punchline: "The Fed will self-destruct anyway when the money is gone" - amen. And ironically letting the Fed keep on doing what it...
  • Flashback to 2001: Bush apologizes for Muslim being removed from WH

    WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush, described as very upset about a Muslim leader being ordered out of the White House, issued an apology Friday for the incident. ``The president is very concerned that an action was taken that was wrong, inappropriate and the president apologizes for it on behalf of the White House,'' press secretary Ari Fleischer said. A group of Muslim leaders walked out of a White House meeting Thursday, angered when a uniformed Secret Service officer ordered one of them - Abdullah Alarian, a congressional intern - out of the building. Secret Service spokesman Jim Mackin later said...

    Jerusalem Post ^ | 1/4/12 | HILARY LEIILA KRIEGER
    DES MOINES, Iowa – Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul’s views on Israel and Iran have been greatly misunderstood, his son Senator Rand Paul said in a conversation with The Jerusalem Post just hours before Iowans voted in the first caucuses for the GOP nomination Tuesday night. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, who like his father espouses libertarian views, said his father’s positions on the threat of a nuclear Iran are in line with those of Mossad head Tamir Pardo and other prominent Israeli figures, who he suggested has questioned the wisdom of using a military option against Iran. Pardo was quoted...

    With the arrest of a second Lodi resident, the Bergen County Prosecutors Office (BCPO) says that it has resolved all the executed and planned attacks on area synagogues that took place in December and January.Nineteen-year-old Aakash Dalal was arraigned on Monday as co-conspirator in the most dangerous attacks, in which firebombs were thrown into the rabbi’s residence at Congregation Beth El in Rutherford. According to Prosecutor John Molinelli, who announced the arrest at an afternoon press conference on Friday, March 2, Dalal has been friends since middle school with Anthony M. Graziano, who was arrested in January and charged with...
  • It’s Time for Ron Paul to Drop Out

    03/07/2012 9:56:30 AM PST · by jmstein7 · 52 replies · 1+ views
    It is time for Ron Paul to pack up his bags and go back to Texas. To the best of my knowledge, nobody in the media or blogosphere (which is technically part of the media) has called for Paul to exit the race. So, let me be the first. Get out! At various times, the media – in print and on air – and GOP establishment have called for the exit of Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, and John Huntsman. Oddly, nobody has asked the same of Paul. Paul has already admitted that he probably won’t win any states or pick...
  • Ron Paul Panders to Anti-Semitism in Michigan

    Ron Paul, who has consistently engaged in anti-Semitic nonsense over the course of the past few decades, has largely attempted to hide his anti-Semitism throughout his campaign. No longer. Ron Paul has issued this Arabic-language flyer outside the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn, Michigan:The flyer actually has two sides. The English side promotes Paul’s “Plan to Restore America” and touts his deficit cutting prowess and dislike of the Federal Reserve. The Arabic side, however – the side shown above – is far less subtle. It says that Paul will cut foreign aid, and specifically mentions only foreign aid to...

    The Daily Caller ^ | 22 Feb | Matt Lewis
    On Wednesday, Chuck Todd, NBC News’ political director and host of MSNBC’s “Daily Rundown,” rhetorically asked: “Just what has Romney promised Ron Paul.”Nobody knows if some sort of bargain has been made, but it is interesting that Rep. Ron Paul has never really attacked Mitt Romney, yet he has frequently attacked more conservative candidates at just the moment they were beginning to pose a threat to Romney. (For example, consider his latest ad, attacking Rick Santorum.)The timing has been noticeable.Now, a Kentucky media outlet, WFPL News, might be offering us a clue: Kentucky’s junior senator says it would be...

    Ron Paul revels in the fact that he is the presidential candidate of America's small donors, receiving more contributions under $200 than any other Republican seeking the White House in 2012.But, like every other GOP presidential contender, he also has a mega-millionaire "sugar daddy" helping to fund a super PAC that is promoting Paul's candidacy.Yet while Newt Gingrich underwriter Sheldon Adelson and Rick Santorum super-supporter Foster Friess have shared the campaign stage - and the national political spotlight - with their candidates, Paul's benefactor, San Francisco entrepreneur Peter Thiel, has never met the Texas congressman he's aiding.Who is this mystery...

    MSNBC ^ | msnbc.com | Bill Dedman
    As Libertarian Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul looks for a state he can win, some of his supporters have turned to a new theme: voting fraud. A Super PAC supporting Paul has pledged to monitor the vote in all the remaining states, using an army of exit pollsters to fight what it calls results that are "outrageous, unacceptable and patently un-American." The group, called Revolution PAC, has spent half a million dollars supporting Paul with videos, webcasts, online ads, direct mail, billboards and radio ads in primary and caucus states. We first noticed Revolution PAC last week, when it told...

According to the official, the intervention scenario calls for the establishment of a buffer zone on the Turkish border, in order to receive Syrian refugees. The Red Cross would then provide the civilians humanitarian aid, before NATO crews would arrive...
