You'll have to sift through

You'll have to sift through his videos on "Uncommon Knowledge" via the Hoover Institute or find other videos of him. He admitted to jumping on the communism bandwagon when he was in school in some of them.

I'm at work and can't access youtube but that is the first place to look.

"Bipartisan: both parties acting in concert to put both of their hands in your pocket."-Rothbard

I've appreciated Ben Swann SO much but...

This interview is so "off the wall" bizarre that my stomach is queasy. Maybe it's because of all the times RP supporters have gotten burned or all the ways our Bill of Rights is getting shredded but I get this feeling that I'm getting played.

Ben Swann is known for his hard-hitting interviews.

Why would Obama give Ben the time of day?

Down vote me, call me paranoid. The ELITE know Ben and don't make mistakes like this.

What do THEY hope to accomplish by THIS?

Obama is

a much smarter politician than Romney and probably sees an opportunity in the Ron Paul supporter's dissatisfaction with Romney. Maybe he thought speaking to Ben was an opportunity to appeal to us since there are many former Democrats in the liberty movement.

I also appreciate Ben Swann but I wish he had not edited and cut Obama's response. I would have liked to hear his answer uncut in its entirety and then hear what Ben Swann had to say about it.

Ohio is a swing state

that is the only reason Romney and Obama have been interviewed by Ben Swann. It is because Ben Swann is a reporter for a television station in a swing state. The interview itsels wasn't that confrontational. Ben Swann was more direct in his commentary, and I imagine that if the Obama Campaign sees this, Ben Swann won't get a second interview.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

-C. S. Lewis

I don't get what you don't get.

Ben was truly brave to ask the guy with a kill list about the kill list. Don't you think it important he gets this out in the open since it's more than probable that Romney would have one, too, if he get the WH?
I think Ben is warning the sheeple that the kill list won't go away when BO does.

Ben, Truth Teller

This is amazing that Ben gets to ask the President this question. I can't wait to see Ben's career take off.

Ben Swann...

...Should get an award.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

But I was thinking a medal would be more appropriate.

I hate to admit this but...

What's with the flag with the big circle on it with the triangular wedges of red and white?

Yes Ben did a great job but I was completely distracted with the unfamiliar flag. Is this the new flag for the new "CSF" (civilian security force).

Keep in mind all these "leaders" rely heavily on symbolism for some reason. If anyone knows please fill me in. And yes I do think Ben may have officially put himself in harms way.

Somewhere there are men planning the next destructive and evil ploy to make this world their own... The common man is not part of that plan as we would see fit... Merely pawns to be used against one another.

That is the Ohio flag... I

That is the Ohio flag... I had to look it up because it is a non conformist for not using the rectangular shape like real flags.

Southern Agrarian

Not actually a flag, per se...

It's the Ohio State Burgee. Just a little arcane trivia for your next bar bet. Flags are rectangular. Burgees are penant-shaped, with one or two points. Yacht clubs have official burgees, usually with one point. It is an exercise for the reader to figure why the State of Ohio would use a yacht club flag :-). Actually, the wikipedia page for the Ohio flag cites the shape as based upon the design of cavalry flags of the Civil and Spanish-American wars.

Again, not sure why the cavalry would fly yachting flags :-)

I'm voting for Peace.


Yachting burgee = Naval
Naval = Admiralty
Admiralty = Corporate
Corporate = Legal
Legal vs. Lawful

Am I getting warm? :-)

Thanks... I googled "O" flag and it was nothing but Obama everywhere.

I feel pretty stupid right about now.

Swann has been kicking ass for over a year now

Best Obama interview ever.

Fight the Ron Paul blackout on the Daily Paul (now 'P AU L'), put his removed poster back as your avatar:

Obama is looking and sounding

more like a dictator by the day. Romney is less intelligent, but would continue with the authority to:

- arrest without warrant,

- detain indefinitely without a lawyer,

- murder by presidential order.

And that is one good reason the REVOLUTION will continue. The media needs to talk more about this issue, because they and their families are at risk as well. There is too much power allowed in the hands of ONE man, and that is how dictators are created. There has been NO accountability for the MURDER of a 16 year old boy.

Ben Swann follows the Ron Paul example of courage and speaking the truth.

You should always watch Ben,

You should always watch Ben, He's the next best thing to Ron Paul, since Rand sold his soul.

He has the heart of a Lion

Wait till more and more like him start multiplying, Liberty can be contagious

I wish we could "promote" him, within the liberty movement

so that he would appear at rallies, write bestselling books, do interviews with RT, and so on.

More exposure.

A little song

Do your balls hang low, Do they wobble to and fro: Can you tie them in a knot, Can you tie them in a bow: Can you throw them over your shoulder like a continental soldier, DO YOUR BALLS HANG LOW!!
