Wow. Great.I foresee a Paul

Wow. Great.

I foresee a Paul Ryan vs Paul Ryan video in the works soon.

I'm going to name my first born BEN-SWANN-all in capital letters. I bet other journalists wreak of jealousy when they're in his presence. This guy deserves a medal.

Don't forget the great work

Don't forget the great work Julian Assange had been doing as well, blazing the trail for people like Ben Swann to follow.

Immoral funding of Military Industrial Complex by Federal Reserve and US taxation system must stop!!!! End illegal/unconstitutional wars! Preserve US currency!

Wow! That was epic!

Just watched it. Loved the closing.

"What other principles can be preserved by compromising them?"

allegory - ˈalɪg(ə)ri/ - noun - 1. a story, poem, or picture which can be interpreted to reveal a hidden meaning, typically a moral or political one.

I wonder sometimes if this isn't one big show

put on for us.

That kind of illogical statement reminds of this wrap song where a guy gets caught humping a girl by his then girlfriend.

First thing out of his mouth was "It wasn't me".. Seems to be the same kind of goofy mentality.


Voted for bailouts ..It wasn't me!
Voted for the bridge to nowhere... It wasn't me!!

I'm scared for Ben! If he keeps up this whole truth thing, he is going to need body guards.

I like the slogan used by Tricia Macke.

"In our commitment to balance news"

“I have joined your revolution and I’m proud to be part of what you want to do.” - Ron Paul

His last point is EPIC !!!

"What OTHER principles might you abandon in order to 'save' your principles?"

Now THAT is the whole point. And THAT is the whole problem with government today, especially on the GOP side.

Should a person who claims that their "principle" is to defend the Consitution actually work to destroy the Constitution in order to "save" the Constitution?

Seems like the Orwellian newspeak that is so pervasive in the corrupt Republican Party leadership.

Of course ... that's because they are neocons (i.e. socialists) rather than actual conservatives, and certainly they are antithetical to libertarians.

Ben Swann hits it out of the ballpark ... again.

That has to be some amazing talent

that Ryan has, being able to talk out of both sides of his mouth at the same time!

Is This Ben's Youtube Page

Thanks for the good suggestion


Why don't the Fox 19 guys

Why don't the Fox 19 guys setup their own youtube channel to upload, instead of their own proprietary video page? If they want to earn advertising revenue, it'll still be possible for them to do it through youtube.

The problem is that audience exposure is much bigger through youtube. Most people have natural tendency to search for things on youtube instead of individual station pages. They can also run such applications on mobiles, iPhone whatever...and that's hard to do with specific station pages.

Anyone who thinks that the

Anyone who thinks that the mortgage industry is operating as a free market, and the collapse happened because of the free market, needs to have their head examined. I work for a "private" small business in the mortgage industry, and yet everyday I feel more like a government employee. There are four basic types of mortgages people can do: Conventional, FHA, USDA, and VA. ONLY conventional are free market loans. And conventional are still quasi-free market because of the many requirements mandated by the government. Everything else is backed up and subsidized by the government. Then there is the issue of the artifically low interest rates. Paul Ryan abandoned his principles to temporarily save a socialized mortgage industry failing. If he wants a free market ask him if he is willing to abolish the FHA and return interest rates to market mechanisms.

"Where liberty is, there is my country." -Benjamin Franklin

No matter what business you're in

ALL jobs feel like government employees/slaves.




This guy just doesn't stop! And he keeps getting better and better.

oh snap! Way to go Ben.

oh snap! Way to go Ben.

He does America Proud!!

I don't know about anyone else, but I see the Hand of Providence at play with the advent of a real news journalist entering the scene at this time in our nation's history. One man brave enough to report the truth against an entire body trained to obfuscate and deceive who takes their cue from TPTB. God Bless Ben Swann.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.

"The Paul Ryan Deception"

There it is, in a nutshell. Good piece. Both are. I like that guy. It's funny how he didn't mention Ron Paul's name and yet that's what comes through loud and clear! It's someone like Ron Paul whom we need: someone to change the way things operate in Washington and who will STOP THESE DAMN WARS.

In less than 10 clips, Ben

In less than 10 clips, Ben Swann has accomplished what I was not able to do in 5 years. Maybe its the cache that goes with being on TV, but Ben has turned my neocon, sean hannity loving, grandpa into someone finally considering the Ron Paul point of view.

I can only imagine how quickly the Republican discorse would change if Ben was presented to millions.

It's because "Fox" is associated with Mr. Swann.

Part of his brainwashing is in play here.

But no doubt, we should be excited about Ben out there reporting with a foundation of goodness and truth.

"I'd Really Like to Know"

"What other principles can be preserved by abandoning them? I'd really like to know"

Me, too!

Excerpts from Ben's show would make great cannon fodder for an advertisement exposing Ryan's hypocrisy and LACK of constitutional principle. ;)

Ben Swan is the Only Real TV Journalist Out There

Now that Judge Napolitano's show is off the air.

May our efforts in support of Congressman Ron Paul be blessed with supernatural success.

Awesome piece!

Awesome piece!
