You LiesMan! :-)

Guess he sleeps well at night with his Federal Reserve TeddyBear and CFR PJs on.

Good stuff



Best RP interview I have seen in a while... he kills it so hard that the anchors are enamored... Steve L. is a little skeptical, but he agrees since the other two agree...

Go Ron Go!

I so hope they do this and promote it BIG TIME

I don't think he should talk

I don't think he should talk about wanting to get rid of fractional reserve. While he can't really avoid talking about the negatives that such a system would bring about, it would be better to focus on removing legal tender from fractional reserve banks so that they don't get special treatment. I don't think that ending fractional reserve banking is a fight that we can win.

fraud always ends in collapse

Fractional reserve banking is the mother of all bubbles, it is the underlying fraud of the world's banking system. "There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root." Thoreau. To say it is a fight we can't win is a presumption, it depends on how bad things get and how well informed the people become about this fraud. Anything is possible, everything is in flux, our duty is to strike at the root of the problem which is exactly what Dr. Paul is doing.

Just sent a very polite thank you note

and encouraged them to bring Ron Paul back on the show. I'm not sure Dr. Paul wants to do a two hour show though, he's a busy guy.

"the times they are a changin'"!!!!!

ahh but that is the beauty!

What we are literally witnessing here are market forces in action. Media companies are responding to viewership numbers to increase ad revenues.

Look at the numbers - almost every major media outlet in America has DRASTICALLY seen its ad revenues fall - many posting major losses (for example, Ted Turner is down to "his last $2 Billion" lol).

The Liberty movement is taking off like wildfire, and if media companies don't respond quickly the process of marginalization through the internet will mortally wound them. And so, they are reacting to the changing tides.

Remember they are businesses interested in profits, first and foremost - maybe the ones that receive government bailouts excluded, but otherwise these guys are in it to make a buck.

People have stopped buying the shill garbage put out there for so long - the media market is reacting to a huge change in public perception. I guarantee you upper management of CNBC is licking their chops at the idea of ad-blasting a Ron Paul special. He has been getting a lot of press (rightfully so) lately and I would love to see the ratings for slots that he is booked for.

So it is a moot point whether or not these people were shunning him last year (and they were). They were just reacting to the type of perception that existed at the time, the type of "change" that the Obama camp et al were preaching. We should instead be praising the virtues of real markets and human action (economics) that FORCES corruption out the door! The very thing they bemoan is what gives them the "do or die" choice.

The irony is making me smile right now :)

What you are saying is correct, however

there is another over riding issue.

MSM networks are owned by larger corporations like GE who have vested interest in financial, energy and military institutions. They have full time personnel in place who monitor and direct the content of these shows to their advantage. Also the PTB are really a group of families that have large stock holdings in these key corporations. However since they are hidden behind various holding companies the public cannot easily identify who they are.

I can assure you there are many in high places who will be adamantly opposed to RP having 2 hours of LIVE access to the public airways!


well stated! BRAVO! <<< BIG GRIN~!


Just fired off a comment for the good doctor and telling them to hurry up and book that 2-hour special!

I hear destiny calling! Do you?

Two hours and advertised? Fingers crossed!

I'm sending another message, the suggestion of studio time at the end just sounds great! They made Ron's job easier by actually asking some intelligent questions too.


B) Let the good doctor talk!!!

Not to be the naysayer....

But, it seems to me that only a year ago these same people would have shunned Dr. Paul. Now, here they are just basically buttering Dr. Paul up with "we'll give you a 2 hour show and you can just go off!".

I am absolutely delighted to see Dr. Paul getting this kind of attention in the media. I just still can't trust what the MSM is doing, ever.

That's my peace.

I really enjoyed Ron's "liveliness".

That clip drew me in, like near the fire.
You're right, he rocked.

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

Watched it!!

Love it.
Wrote them.

That put a big smile on my face!

I love to see him laugh. Most of the time he is just too serious because he has to talk about all of this serious stuff.

Opportunity for Ratings

What an opportunity for a network to grab hold of a huge audience! FOX would be blown out of the water if another station grabbed a few Constitutional hosts. CNBC should try to grab The Judge off of FOX and put him up against Allaboutme (Hannity)
