RP on foreign banks (and “US” banks) receiving aid from US taxpayer: “I think it’s criminal…This is not how a free society ought to operate. This is all for special interests.”
Back in February, Bernanke lied when Paul questioned him about foreign bailouts.
Bernanke: “We have no plans, whatsoever, to be involved in any foreign bailouts or anything of that sort.” What about the foreign banks that they bailed out?
Bloomberg Sues Fed to Force Disclosure of Collateral (Update1)
Banks with headquarters outside the U.S. were among the first to begin using the facility in December 2007 and were also among its heaviest borrowers. These included the U.S. affiliates of banks such as Manama, Bahrain-based Arab Banking Corp., Madrid-based Banco Santander SA, and Paris-based Societe Generale SA. Beginning on June 18, 2009, Barclays Bank Plc had two loans totaling $23.45 billion outstanding.
Note that this fed disclosure only occurred due to the Bloomberg lawsuit. We need to use the courts to get our country back!

Given her track record, Goodman is definitely someone who is motivated by principle and not by corporate sponsorship. Here she gives her views on Obama— specificially saying that he is an “enormous disappointment” on the issue of expanded wars, bank bailouts, unemployment, torture, and his handling of the BP oil spill.
“I think the media has to be independent, it’s brought to us by corporations in the United States… when media is covering war they’re brought to you by weapons manufacturers, when they’re covering the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico they’re brought to you by the oil companies, when were covering the massy coal explosion in West Virginia they’re brought to you by the coal industry, they’re brought to you by the gas industry…”

Great to see Rand take the primary win in Kentucky. Few non-presidential political candidates have to face tough questions from national media the way that Rand Paul is having to face them. Given the state of the economy however, some of the questions posed by CNN anchors to Rand here about the economy and about the people who depend on welfare, seemed very unintelligent— Rand is quick to point out that if the debt crisis in the U.S. isn’t fixed soon, there won’t be a welfare state left to debate about. Just look at Greece.

If you pay taxes then you are paying for Michelle Obama’s servants, er, “assistants”.
Forget the fact that we are in the midst of the worst economy since the Great Depression. Forget that there is record national debt, and ignore the high unemployment and suffering amongst the common people. Because Michelle Obama needs 26 assistants at our expense–a bill that works out to more than $1.7 million dollars per year!
Remember, “First Lady” is not a political office–she is not entitled to any assistants. In fact, First Ladies of the past had to pay their assistants out of their own pockets! (I am not referring to Laura Bush here–she had a taxpayer-funded staff as well. But hers only cost us a “mere” $1+ million of wasted money per year.)
Apparently all of the new jobs from the economic stimulus packages were created inside of the White House.

Bob Chapman speaking on the Alex Jones show, breaks down the unemployment numbers pointing out that according to the 1980s formula for figuring unemployment, we’re currently at 20.2%. (Luckily we figure it differently now.)
