Ron Paul: We have one political party and all they fight over is power

Republicans and Democrats belong to the same political party, fighting over power–not philosophy:

Rest in Peace Alex Chilton

Normally this blog focuses on politics. But it’s a sad day, and I can’t resist saying a few words about Alex Chilton, who died yesterday in New Orleans.

As a member of Big Star and The Box Tops (not to mention his work as a solo artist and producer) the music he created played a major role in my teenage years and beyond. He was a huge influence on countless great bands. He was years ahead of his time. He was a quirky, underrated, iconoclastic musical genius… and he will be missed.

Ron Paul at CPAC

At a convention that included the likes of Glenn Beck, Newt Gingrich, Ann Coulter, Liz Cheney and Mitt Romney, Ron Paul was one of the few voices of reason and sanity. There is hope though–Ron Paul filled the entire convention hall at the recent Conservative Political Action Conference, and some of his supporters were turned away after the room reached its capacity of 1,100 people. Ron Paul also won the straw poll, taking 31% of the vote.

Fake TV News: Corporate Media is Propaganda

With a new story from Stars and Stripes out today (see link below)  about media manipulation, it seems like as good a time as any to review some examples of corporate media dishonesty:

Also, don’t forget about “Operation Mockingbird”

Here we have fake news (if this video is what it appears to be) from the 1991 Gulf War era:

Video News Releases (VNR’s) are a whole other dimension of fake news:

Here are some clips from a year or two ago about Pentagon dissemination of propaganda and talking points on the news:

Lets not forget about the fake FEMA conference from a couple of years age where the FEMA employees were pretending to be reporters:

Reasons To Be Critical of the Federal Reserve

I’ve been reading “The 5000 Year Leap,” a book about the principles the Founding Fathers espoused which inspired the formation of the Constitution. Coincidentally I had been reading the chapter about “Free Market Economics” when I was directed to the article I quote below—but in this chapter the author (Cleon Skousen) describes how it had been Thomas Jefferson’s desire to set up the United States so that Congress (not private banks) controlled the issuance of money. Sadly, his desire was never fully implemented in the U.S., and pretty much from day one, because of bad policy amidst an economic depression, the issuance of money was turned over to a private consortium of bankers, and later to the fed, another private bank.

Jefferson seems to be calling from the grave with disapproval:

“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs. “

Ron Paul MSNBC Florida Debate 1.24.08

The other candidates and the MSM are just flat out scared of Dr. Paul now, hoping to avoid having to confront him or be confronted by him because they know they always lose. No more half-witted attempts to make him look bad, no more strange cackling while he speaks, just avoiding eye contact seems to be their plan.

Total Times
Romney: 21:11, during 13 times
McCain: 16:00, during 13 times
Giuliani: 13:50, during 11 times
Huckabee: 12:11, during nine times
Paul: 6:31, during six times

John McCain was very confused.

And then of course there’s the strange “man behind the curtain” whispering to Romney, apparently the brains of the operation.

And Then There Were 5

Huckabee and Giuliani are nearly broke so they’ll be next to go.

URGENT: Ron Paul’s Economic Solutions

A welfare-style tax rebate band-aid? Lowering interest rates and injecting billions of fiat dollars into an already over-inflated economy? This is like sticking bubble-gum into the cracks of a dam that is about to burst. It is only delaying the inevitable and making things worse.

Our economy is now facing imminent collapse, this will not be abated by faulty, temporary “fixes” that are only contribuing to the problem. Here are the real, urgent economic solutions provided by Ron Paul that need to be implemented.

1. Tax Reform: Reduce the tax burden and eliminate taxes that punish investment and savings, including job-killing corporate taxes.

2. Spending Reform: Eliminate wasteful spending. Reduce overseas commitments. Freeze all non-defense, non-entitlement spending at current levels.

3. Monetary Policy Reform:
Expand openness with the Federal Reserve and require the Fed to televise its meetings. Return value to our money.

4. Regulatory Reform:
Repeal Sarbanes/Oxley regulations that push companies to seek capital outside of US markets. Stop restricting community banks from fostering local economic growth.
