Rand Paul Tries to Have Abby Martin Fired From RT For Daring to Ask a Question

I don't know the background behind this story, but I didn't see it posted here yet. Curious what the Daily Paulers think about it.

If I haven't seen it, it's news to me.

Rand is a shill of what his father once was. He is establishment.

Not saying this isn't important

But I'm certain I saw this video several months ago

Truth fking hurts sometimes.

Truth fking hurts sometimes. rand paul is a lowlife and the people who support that liar will continue the cycle that is destroying this place.

we are change are premature ejaculators

they need to calm down and take a different approach in order to be successful with main stream America imo.

you're doing the same thing

MSM is doing with snowden/NSA attacking/focusing on the messenger and refusing to look at the message.

a different approach? listen to the abby martin/ben swann interview.
the MSM is not interested in truth.

i listen to both of them and love them, but We are change...

just seems like little kids trying to get attention with a temper tantrum.

here check out my videos i made: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7wK5qaNOtY

and : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kMUB79vckJs


nice work

i enjoyed both of your videos.

we are change are a little rough around the edges (common in activists groups) but i think their hearts are in the right place and they're actually doing something. chapters all around the country now and i predict they will become more
sophisticated as they grow. with your own talent i think you'd be an asset to them.


good points,i will keep that in mind.

how could anyone

go after abby martin (in a mean way)

Its disgusting

and very discouraging to see Rand Paul speed up his step when dude mentions bilderberg. If Rand was on our side he would jump all over those questions and give these guys a real interview. I mean I would, wouldn't you?

or at least stop

and say something like: sorry, i'm in a hurry at the moment, but my aide here will take your contact info and we'll set up something later.

i'll bet they would have said: swell and thank you senator.

it's disgusting for a rookie like yourself.

to make such a comment.

why do you think jumping on the third rail of politics would be a good strategy at this point?

Forget the %^&%^% strategy.

Forget the %^&%^% strategy. You're not marketing cereal. People are fed up with blatant ingenuous "marketing" called "strategies". People are crying for integrity which Rand seems to lack.

Exactly right, Shuleba

I am sorry to see so many Rand Paul supporters on this site. He is just not in the same league as his father. I would sooner support Ralph Nader or Dennis Kucinich or others on the right than Rand Paul. I approved of his filibuster, but a lot of what he says and does leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

I'm not sure what all this is

I'm not sure what all this is about, but... if pure hearts and emotions won elections than Ron Paul would be President now. Obviously, almost all of our entire system; media, gov't, politics; is on a completely different track.

When in Rome??

On a sidenote, look at what happened with Debra Medina and 9/11 truth questions on Glenn Becks' ambush interview.

If pulling the plug on your

If pulling the plug on your father at the 11th hour to endorse your opponent is in the name of strategy...then the system has failed long ago. If integrity no longer plays a part in the leadership of a country then it doesn't matter what"strategies" you use .... the game is rigged. This whole concept of winning at all costs is the current culture of politics and is the downfall of USA.

"If Rand was on our

"If Rand was on our side..."

It's only the divisive psychology of the likes of Rudkowski in which a quote like that can even make sense.

"I mean I would, wouldn't you?"

Yes I would, and Rand would have too. A month or so before this video was made Rand invited Luke for a lengthier, more convenient, more relaxed, sit down interview. Luke never followed up on that!

do you have a source

for that claim?

Luke is a Soros pawn

same as Kokesh.

Tasked to bring the Liberty movement down from the inside.

"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav


Care to back that up or do you always flaunt personal opinions as fact?


awl19 asks for a source, is ignored and voted down.
that says a lot.

Most of the

childish antics he engages in draw negative attention. One over-the-top speech given 7 years ago a "leader" does not make.

Easy to understand if you simply observe his behavior.

"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav

I wouldn't have answered either...

and if you were foolish enough to answer, you would give your opponents a ton of ammo to be used against you.

And for what? So that you could say you don't like the Bilderberg folks?

Are you shitting me?

There are much smarter ways to say that you oppose world gvt without getting lured into a suckers game.

I'm sorry

but you need to answer to the base at some point for reassurance. Endorsing Mitt mother f'n Romney and running from libertarian journalists aint the way to do it..Ron has no problem answering these kinds of questions. Something aint right

Old News...

...I like Abby and Luke on a lot of things but this deal was a real ambush and I did not care for it at all.

Rand did the right thing by not answering their question. Any way that Rand would have answered would have given Rand's opponents some really good ammo to be used against him in a future election.

Very bush league.

don't worry

eventually tough questions, and investigating journalism will be outlawed.



This issue is 11 months old

and was already discussed in depth here on the DP. Looks like the video was just re-issued to stir more controversy where there is none.

I would suggest removing this pointless thread.

Last Years News

It's a recent upload of a year old video.

It's no more true today than it was last year.

The headline of this post is an utter fallacy.

Luke Rudkowski, XRepublicTV, and matt_ all equally engage here in something beyond even what might be called extreme spin or yellow journalism. Call it what you will, fabrication, fallacy, deception, false allegation, conspiracy theory, hopeful thinking, whatever... It's quite simply not true!

to matt_
If you want to contribute something worthwhile here, how about poring through Rudkowski's body of work and finding his follow-up videos in which he shows evidence to support this claim.

Good luck! :D
