McCain says he would support Rand Paul for president

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) told The New Yorker he would support Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) for president if Paul is the Republican nominee.

“I’ve seen him grow, and I’ve seen him mature, and I’ve seen him become more centrist," McCain told The New Yorker's Ryan Lizza, who wrote a long profile of Paul.

"I know that, if he were president or a nominee, I could influence him, particularly some of his views and positions on national security. He trusts me particularly on the military side of things, so I could easily work with him. It wouldn’t be a problem.”

Don’t panic over Ebola in America

Ebola is terrifying. But it's not likely to kill you, or to spread widely in the United States. What's scary — and hyped — about Ebola isn't what makes it dangerous.

NO Cameras America (said the sign on the door)

Moses Lake is a small town of about twenty thousand run by corrupt a city manager named Joe Gavinski. He does the dirty work while the city council hides. During my Congressional race the city was stealing my signs, sometimes on camera. Why? Because I would not sign a contract with them for a grant of free speech.

Gold Is Not in a Bear Market

Just because gold has fallen in price from its highs the past 3 years doesn't mean that it's in a bear market. While you have read in many of my articles about the possibility of what a stronger dollar might do to gold I have also provided you with many of the indicators I follow so you can see the same things I see. But don't think for a moment any bearishness you may perceive I have has me negative on the future of gold. Don't believe for a moment that gold is in a bear market.

3 Phases of a Gold Bull Market
Richard Russell from Dow Theory Letters sums up best the 3 stages of a gold bull market (this quote was included in my book Buy Gold and Silver Safely).

First phase is where sophisticated investors, sensing a new bull market, make their initial commitment.

In the second phase, the public will start to buy gold, this in reaction to increasing political and social uncertainty, rising debt levels and nervousness as to the future of the dollar.

Baby Murdered In Foster Care After Being Taken Away Due To Father’s Marijuana Use

Marijuana may be legal in Colorado, but authorities in the state are still using the drug as an instrument to tear families apart, this time with absolutely tragic consequences.

A baby girl was taken away from her biological parents, Tierra and Ted Place, after the father told human services that he used marijuana. Human services had been summoned to the home after a fight between the couple.

The baby, 11 month old Angel Lane Place, was dropped and shaken during her time in a foster home and died. Ted Place is now threatening to sue Mesa County.

The New Yorker cover story : The Revenge of Rand Paul

The Revenge of Rand Paul

The Senator has fought to go mainstream with the ideology that he shares with his father. How far can that strategy take him?
BY RYAN LIZZA - October 6, 2014 Issue

At 8 A.M. on a Friday in late July, Senator Rand Paul, of Kentucky, stood before a predominantly African-American audience of about a hundred at an Urban League conference in Cincinnati. An ophthalmologist before he was a senator, Paul has spent much of his career in surgical scrubs, but he was dressed nattily, in a charcoal suit and a red rep tie. His typically unkempt curls, which give him the look of a philosophy student lost in thought, were restrained with the help of a hair product. His aides had been promoting the talk for weeks, as part of a yearlong effort to reintroduce himself to political constituencies—on both the left and the right—that may have reason to distrust him. In the next few months, he is planning to deliver a major speech on foreign policy; like race, it is an area in which Paul has encountered strident opposition.

Paul began with the story of Clyde Kennard, a black man in Mississippi who was jailed in 1960 on false charges after he tried to enroll at an all-white college. “Despite our progress,” Paul said, “there are Clyde Kennards today who can’t fully access the franchise because they’re handicapped by either educational or judicial systems.” He laid out a criminal-justice-reform package he has introduced in the Senate to end mandatory minimum-sentencing laws, expunge nonviolent felonies from criminals’ records, reclassify some felonies as misdemeanors, and restore voting rights to citizens who had committed a nonviolent felony. Like Barack Obama, he vowed to free many people imprisoned for crack cocaine, and he announced a new proposal to end the sentencing disparity between crack and powder cocaine. He had even spoken with the President about it—not something about which a Republican would normally boast: “I talked to him last week and said, ‘I will help in any way I can.’ ”
