Shudder ...

She's probably a nice person and definitely is a pretty lady. When I see Michelle Malkin on tv though, I get this disturbing vision of stiletto heels, black leather, whips, chains, spiked collars and of being bound and gagged with hot wax dripped on me for being a bad boy. That she comes to Rand Paul's defense is kind of uncomfortable. Come to the light girl! Repent your neoconservative ways!


you've just got to realize someone's just trying to jerk your underwear up over your head, and not allow for it....Glenn Beck with a *****.


Isn't this the same woman who said that Ron Paul really had NO business being in the debates? Maybe she has had a change of heart. Or maybe it's just because now there is a Democrat in office. Can't be sure ;)

Malkin is praising Rand...

for the same reason Bill Kristol and Netanyahu are... :)

"... Sen. Paul of being out of line for criticism of..."

Oh! So, that's how it works, anyway, on the "DEMOCRATS", "LIBERALS", "PROGRESSIVES" 's end!


Tell me about "PROGRESS", then!

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

When I was a neocon

Malkin was HOT. Now I know, she might be seeing the light and realizes that the republican party cannot move forward without the revolution. This tastes good.

she is a toad..

anyone remember her declaring that Ron Paul didn't deserve to be on the debate stage?

Screw her and her opinion. Id rather watch grass grow.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

Raimondo has nothing good to say about her back to 2005

Everyones doing a brand new dance now!

Do the Glen Beck.

It's easy, Pander here demagogue there.

Do the Glen Beck.

Free includes debt-free!

"The worst tragedy since 911" - lol.

Not a fan of this kind of behavior. I don't think it helps to be polarizing like this. It didn't help Sarah Palin win any elections.

That's the problem...

...when you are pretending to be someone you are not, sometimes you forget where the line is, and go way across it.

Personally, I am of the school of thought that Rand saw what his dad dedicated his life to, and is frankly pissed at how the establishment belittled and tried to diminish him. He saw the techniques Ron used and what it achieved. Not to diminish the fact that Ron single-handedly sparked brushfires in the minds of millions, but Rand's goal is different. Thus, he is acting differently than Ron. The problem is that half the time Rand is now portraying a fictional character that he thinks will allow him to be accepted by the "main stream" in a way that his father never was. Whether or not this strategy works is yet to be seen. I give him props for putting his neck on the line either way, and for doing what he thinks in his mind will ultimately advance the cause of liberty.

As if...

an attack by disgruntled locals against representatives of a country that had just finished militarily replacing their govt with al qaeda can even begin to be coherently or morally equated to an attack on a financial district full of civilians. The instant Rand said that the gears in mind seemed all munged up going "wait... what? o_O". I actually backed the video up and replayed it thinking I had misheard what he said. :p

Comparing apples and oranges is more coherent than comparing 911 and the Benghazi attack...

~wobbles but doesn't fall down~


conservatives, tea party, oath keepers, right wingers etc etc like this talk- Most liberals Ive seen, do not.
Thats why he does it and Rand will only get louder and more vulgar.
Rand will not make the same mistake his father did by pandering to liberals- at times.
Rands hands are clean and will say what he wants to whomever he wants- as much as he wants. He called McCain a TROLL- TO HIS FACE.
Thats why he will win. Rand is feisty and we like that- and you can bet Ron Paul is behind the pages of the daily news GIGGLING at what comes out of Rands mouth!
Rand has a much fresher mouth then Ron Paul and has no problem climbing into the swamp for a while, and I, and millions of other conservatives, like that.

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

Rand Paul 2016


Ron pandered a bit to his left flank at times. These progressive whackjobs are exploiting that. Rand is a professional man with moral legitimacy who is calling them out without fear. We need that.


I agree.
and I even liked the libs around me when they were working his campaigns in our district.
I never knew they expected RP to change his prolife views, or his 2nd amendment views or many others they cant get on board with.
Many are socialists at heart and think they have a right to everything.
Education, healthcare, credit, nice clothes, nice cars, homes to live and on and on.
They think "rights" fall from trees they hug and they are a given.
This is where the divide is. They realized at one point this is not how RP views rights and he will NEVER change. So they started a new "liberty movement" in hopes of changing them.
what we have now is conservative 102 (Rand)
and lib 102 (liberty movement).
Its the same argument but a new generation.
libs still cant wrap their heads around conservative thinking, as much as RP tried to explain- libs do not get this thinking when it comes to gvt.
and Im afraid never will.

We have a right to our privacy, liberty and our property and thats it.
everything else is EARNED. Libs dont like that and cant get it.

Rand Paul 2016

What are you on about? o_O

I have been on the inside of many a gathering of both dems and repubs for going on 30+ years and I am clueless to where you are getting your characterizations from.

In general republicans and conservative-leaning folk are quite frumpy, laid back and extremely polite and respectful even with their enemies and those they disrespect.

Democrats and the liberal-leaning tend to be the loud ones spewing vulgarity with an in-your-face "I don't care you think about me" attitude. But even most of the libdems display decorum most of the time.

And where are you getting that Ron Paul engaged in pandering to liberals? Ron Paul sometimes would work with dems and liberals that shared common legislative goals but he was quick to articulate any political differences.

And where are you getting that Ron Paul secretly likes trash talking and loud vulgarity? From you imaginary friends? Ron has never held back from aggressively confronting things he considered immoral or upbraiding someone for philosophies he thinks are harming others. He just does it thoroughly yet with the dignity and composure of a statesman attacking the ideas and not the person.

You keep flippantly calling people here "liberals" when most of the time it is obvious you haven't even researched the background and history of the person or are just doing it dishonestly.

You keep referring to yourself as a conservative and your little exclusive club of conservatives as if true conservatives in the Old Right and Reaganite veins are some rare quantity here on Daily Paul. Just what do you define as a conservative and what well-known conservatives that typify your brand of conservatism can you refer us to? The good folks over at little green footballs or red state who constantly spew ad homs and vulgarity and instantly ban any contrary viewpoints and discussion? Or perhaps **put list of arrogant loud smearmongering neocon radio show hosts here**?

I've mingled in many a formal political setting on several sides and odd nooks and crannies of many political aisles and have spent sometimes seemingly endless hours in casual political conversations with people of all stripes on the street, in homes, in offices, in the woods and on the water and I am clueless to the "reality" you seem to be operating in and describing.

When you refer to "liberals" just what are you referring to? People who are anti-war? People who are for civil liberties or that smoke weed? Social liberals that have more open attitudes towards sexuality? There is certainly very few if any big govt liberals hanging around. Maybe a few outsider observers. Nearly all "liberals" here are social liberals that at the same time harshly object to big government. Are you just using the term "liberal" as a smear against libertarian purists?

Just what are you on about? You mostly come off as just goofy in a "me and my imaginary friends" kind of way and your constant labeling and categorizing of people seems arbitrary, petty, baseless and merely cheap attempts at smearing those who disagree with you or that don't support your fave political personalities.

~wobbles but doesn't fall down~


anyone who is prochoice is a liberal to me.
It starts there.
By one being prochice, shows that the person does not understand the proper role of gvt- and its most important mandate.

and YES liberals/lib leaning- FAR outnumber the conservatives here.
So I have been using the term "lib" much more often. at least I dropped the "tard" part.
It was not always this way here at the daily paul.
GJ broke and split and it needed to be done- im seeing now.
because rand will not let the libs take him down like they did his father. libs broke from ron at the last minute and should never EVER be trusted again. Rand knows this first hand and thats why hes tea party and not liberty movement.

LL thinks its slick posting pro Rand threads!
It thinks DPers believe it is pro rand!
only the dummies believe something like a canadian/european socialist lib would be pro paul.

Rand Paul 2016

Rand got headlines...

...for his exchange with Clinton. That soundbite was replayed over and over. It showed Rand "looking tough" on Republican-despised Hillary Clinton. That exchange (which no doubt was planned to have this effect) did more to build support for Rand than would a thousand well written articles.

Almost all voters vote on emotion, they're not reading anything, they're not reasoning out anything. They're watching the political football game on TV. Rand scored a touchdown. Can you dig it?

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."


And he was right. This thing was botched then covered up. It will lead right to Obama if Senators have the cajones to stay with it. This was a clear abuse ow power.


Hitlery felt the pressure and LOST IT later on in her question/answer.
Rand got to her and she felt the pressure.

The question rand asked and no one seemed to notice was he asked her if she knew anything about weapons transfers from the US to Turkey- or any other nation, and using Lybia as a transfer point.
She said she would get back to him.
Think about what that meant.

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

Rand Paul 2016

what does it mean?

what does it mean?


many things.
we are supplying weapons through a country we dont even have protection for our embassy workers for one. We are selling weapons and then cant even protect our own!lol
If she had admitted it, she would be admitting under the table arms dealing.
Lybia is not a US weapons store.
Hillary didnt say "no", she said she will get back to him.
Who gave the US permission to sell or send weapons out of Lybia?
Where do the payments go for these weapons and to who?
So many questions raised by this question to her from rand.
McCain knew what it meant and shut his mouth.
We are arming both sides, with no authorization and profiting from it. Thats illegal.

Rand threw a hard right punch at the military industrial complex with that question

Rand Paul 2016

"I don't think it helps to be polarizing like this.

It didn't help Sarah Palin win any elections."

But it sure seems to help the opposition.

Rand said what was on his mind. I do not believe that it was pre-scripted. I am not making a decision to support or not support Rand at this time, but he was correct in his questioning.

Polarizing is neither here nor there for those who seek truth. I want answers, and accountability.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

It's really as simple as

It's really as simple as this: Rand <> Ron

Ron the purist was unacceptable to the conservative pundits, whereas Rand, a conservative with strong liberty leanings, is acceptable to them. For now, at least.

I must be willing to give up what I am in order to become what I will be. Albert Einstein

Tea Party and Malkin

like Rand b/c Rand is one of them with a smack of "libertarianism" to try and impress Ron Paul folks. Rand is trying to appeal to both sides, and panders to both, and serves his own belly, IMHO.

AD in NV


rand would tell any liberal that followed him they were confused and should seek out hillary, joe or gary.
He panders NOT! Thats why the division at the daily Paul.
Libs here feel randy doesnt like them and HE DOESNT!
libs and others call randy many many things but you never hear them call him a rino!
and never will.

Rand Paul 2016

If he wins the Republican primary...

and then wins the Presidency.

I'll take it.

It won't be the "Paul" I wanted to see in the White House, but it will be the best US President we've had since Grover Cleveland.

Rand Paul 2016 for Peace

Wow - I feel like I'm in the twilight zone here.

Who the hell is Malkin? A correspondent who's opinion we're supossed to value? I'm NOT a fan of Malkin's - not even by a long shot. Many here remember her being a good little prestitute and the disrespect she's given Dr. Paul in the past. WE DON'T FORGET (talking to you too priebus).

I also don't condone or support biased and emotional(sensationalistic) reporting. But I do have to admit that it felt somewhat refreshing (for a change) : )


I will not up vote scum

please no more front page malkin posts

i get it , she is a little asian hotty , i get it , but agreed she is a paid off shill bitch and doesnt deserve daily paul's peoples time or respect.

no more Michelle Malkin posts PUHHLEEEEZE!

"He's this eccentric Ghandi-Like figure that you cant touch with the normal bribes that people respond to."
the man Doug Wead on DR. RON PAUL

i hate this statist bitch

being half asian I feel she is brings us disrespect.

She made fun of RP in an interview not long ago, but now all the sudden Rand Paul is ok cause he loves Israel. She's a paid off mouth piece.
