Ron Paul: Bailouts Are Attacking the Dollar

Jesse Ventura On The Economy, A Possible Senate Run, the Media, & More 7.14.08

Jesse Ventura’s July 14th interview on Larry King:

Sounds like he’s not going to run. This is very disappointing, but I understand why he would be concerned for his family, and how that would influence his decision. Add that to the lack of support from the country for truth and good government and its a wonder anyone with integrity and a conscience gets involved in politics. However, the nation will be worse off without him in the Senate.

Here’s the first part of yesterday’s interview on the Alex Jones radio show:

Democrats & Republicans join hands to eliminate 4th Amendment

(Yes, Barack Obama voted for it too—here comes the “change”)

Congress votes to immunize lawbreaking telecoms, legalize warrantless eavesdropping
Glenn Greenwald
July 9, 2008

The Democratic-led Congress this afternoon voted to put an end to the NSA spying scandal, as the Senate approved a bill — approved last week by the House — to immunize lawbreaking telecoms, terminate all pending lawsuits against them, and vest whole new warrantless eavesdropping powers in the President. The vote in favor of the new FISA bill was 69-28. Barack Obama joined every Senate Republican (and every House Republican other than one) by voting in favor of it, while his now-vanquished primary rival, Sen. Hillary Clinton, voted against it. John McCain wasn’t present for any of the votes, but shared Obama’s support for the bill. The bill will now be sent to an extremely happy George Bush, who already announced that he enthusiastically supports it, and he will sign it into law very shortly.

Jesse Ventura Speaks Out on Larry King Live

This is the April ’08 interview, the interview from July 14th 2008 can be seen here.

Bush Tells Truth About the “War on Terror”

Check out the look on Rumsfields face when Bush accidentally tells the truth about the bogus war on terror:

“Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we,” Bush said. “They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.”

Group hopes to ‘flood the Oval Office’ with 25,000 copies of the Constitution


The Center for Constitutional Rights plans to “flood the Oval Office with copies of the Constitution this holiday season … as a seasonal reminder that the Constitution needs to be upheld; not destroyed.”

If you add your name to the long list of signatures on this letter, CCR will send it along with another copy of the Constitution to the White House. The group is hoping to get more more than 25,000 signatures and to send that many Constitutions to President Bush by January 2008.

Giuliani, Thompson, Romney, Mukasey Refuse to Denounce Waterboarding

Rudy Giuliani, Fred Thompson, and Mitt Romney have all joined Michael Mukasey in refusing to denounce the use of waterboarding on detainees, a technique classified as torture since the Spanish Inquisition.

“Waterboarding is inhumane, it is torture, and it is illegal,” say Retired JAGs in letter to Leahy

The pending confirmation of Michael Mukasey to the position of Attorney General, now destined to go to the full Senate, thanks to Lieber-moves of Shumer and Feinstein, is troublesome to more than just we in the progressive community. Senator Patrick Leahy received this letter (.pdf) from four retired JAGs, who understand that the concept of “Rule of Law” must mean something, even with Bushies in charge.

Bush Says Congress Is Wasting Time

More bullying today came from an executive branch that has too much power:

WASHINGTON, Oct. 30 — President Bush lashed out at Congress today, the third time he has done so in two weeks, this time saying the House had wasted time on “a constant string of investigations” and the Senate had similarly wasted its efforts by trying to rein in the Iraq war. Its failure to send a single annual appropriations bill to his desk, he said, amounted to “the worst record for a Congress in 20 years.” Full Story. . .

Maybe if there wasn’t so much corruption that needed to be investigated they could accomplish more. However, the whole idea of a “checks and balances” system is to limit the amount of junk that gets pushed through congress and written into law. “Wasting time” on investigations is not wasted time in my opinion, unless of course the investigations are meaningless.

House speaker Nancy Pelosi responded to the president, “The president calls Congressional oversight that has uncovered tens of billions of dollars in waste, fraud and abuse in Iraq a ‘waste of time.’ We call billions spent in no-bid contracts to Halliburton a waste of money.”

The Great Illusion: Trading Liberty For Security

In the six years since 9/11, the United States has become a weaker nation. I don’t just mean economically, or militarily, or in terms of national sovereignty (which is all true). Amidst all the rhetoric about “getting tough on terror” and standing up to “those who hate our freedoms,” why is it that most Americans are sitting down? Why is it that most Americans can so easily endorse so-called “liberation” campaigns overseas, but are shrinking with fear and ignorance in the face of attacks on our own freedoms at home?
