There's A Mole At The Daily Paul

Dearest friends,

Que paso amigos - sorry to be the bad-news bearer but here it is: we have a mole.

Someone has been leaking our stories, views, dissertations, and egregious attempts at humor to the outside world. They might even be spying on us.

By way of speculation it is suspected that these individuals are using the TWITTER, FACEBOOK, REDDIT, STUMBLEUPON, and very infrequently the GOOGLE PLUS-1 icons to LEAK OUR STUFF to the outside world.

Again, sorry to have to be that guy. But here's my advice: DON'T click on the social media icons at the top of each article we read here in secret at the Daily Paul. We are very obviously an effective echo chamber, and we don't want any more of our stuff to get out there.

How to Catch a Mole

3 bottle rockets in a row....ought to do the trick, stick em down.....

What does the Daily Paul weigh?


Pandacentricism will be our downfall.

That's difficult to measure on account

of the fact we have different opinions. Along with posts on politics or current events, I love the nightly jam session. I usually check out humour posts. I'm a total sucker for those on animals. (Did you see the elephant & dog friends or cats stealing dog beds?) Because of members who left, I miss those posts related to science and math, or unexplained phenomena, or phenomena that *has* an explanation, just not in line with current thinking. I recently (even) defended the sports thread. But, there are those who consider all the above out of place and a waste of time. In other words, we don't all agree as to what is, or is not, of substance. So, if we can't even delineate *that* for sure, then there is no possible way to determine what a mole would be, and therefore no way to determine mass.

"Throughout this course, we will use the term "molecular weight" to refer to the mass of a mole of a substance."

Blowin' out mole-holes?

I don't know.

I hope he's okay. Btw, chris, this is probably a silly question since it's clear by now from books you've posted that you must browse through my bookshelves (through astral projection?) to supplement your reading. (Yes, it's flattering, although we'd prefer that you knock.) I'll ask anyway. Ever read Radical Chic & Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers? http://www.amazon.com/Radical-Chic-Mau-Mauing-Flak-Catchers/...

When I was little, I had a crush on Leonard Bernstein, whom I'd seen on tv many times. I loved the music, and I loved his hair, the way it flew around as he conducted. Years later I read Tom Wolfe's book and just never felt the same. Ah, such is life. If you don't mind my asking, to what were you referring in choosing to have that statement below your comments?

from this here post...


I was catching a lot of flak myself at the time and thought of perhaps changing my moniker to 'flak catcher' but obviously didn't. For a moment I thought I had even cleverly invented the term but google proved me wrong.

Never heard of that book but I'll read the amazon reviews!

(edit) OK - read a review. So Bernstein was a lefty lib-tard? Who knew! BONUS - the perspicacious reviewer reintroduced me to a lovely word I'd forgotten. Have you the perspicacity to guess what it is?

Pandacentricism will be our downfall.

PantherParty pains pitiful plutocrat, pleases pungent penman

was an interesting review title with the right alliteration: I momentary wondered if plutocrat was the word. http://images2.fanpop.com/image/photos/10100000/Pluto-the-Ro...

Nah. It's probably just perspicacity. Personally, as far as lovely words in the book's reviews, I'd have chosen prescient, a word I associate with--- what? It's not on the DP bookshelf??!!--- DUNE. http://www.amazon.com/Dune-Frank-Herbert/dp/0441172717 Btw, if you didn't happen to read it this won't mean anything, though I guess it's funny enough on its own. http://i.imgur.com/zJDFlD9.jpg

Thanks for explaining about flak catcher and that linked post. Man, did I catch flak on Thanksgiving. It's a good thing I don't take these things personally! http://i.istockimg.com/file_thumbview_approve/23272226/2/sto...

I miss that guy. He always talked about math and numbers, it was cool.

Turns out, I upvoted that months ago



Great detective work

I think the mole is none other than Michael "the Leak" Nystrom. After all, but for what other than dastardly intention would he have placed the social media buttons on his site.

Wow - it goes all the way to the top.

Though I guess all good conspiracies do...

That's crossing a line.

Quit looking at my butt.

I didn't think about that.

But I can see some dweebie desk dork at NSA updating my file:

Identifying Marks: May have mole on butt. Cheek unknown at this time.

I have known this since early election stage

I have had CIA and/or Ex-CIA following and reading my facebook/blog posts, as I have talked to at least 2 people(saying Ex-CIA) claiming I was being watched, and I honestly have no idea how they found me in the first place, I don't know them.

Also many journalists posted our issues in mainstream news as "facts the liberty movements were engaged in", when we merely discussed them.

To think we could make the news for posting our opinion in a political forum, I appreciate all here, even the moles, for making this the place it is.

Yes, what a tragedy it would be if the ideals of freedom

peace, love, self reliance, small government, ending wars, healthy food and lifestyle leaked out to the other 7 billion people on the planet.


I was just trying to draw attention to the fact...

that lots of great stuff is hardly tweeted out or 'facebooked' at all and that's a shame. I too am guilty of this btw.

Pandacentricism will be our downfall.

Teach you to do that here.


If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Ah, so what? Webster Tarpley comes here to get "Paultard News"

Ah, so what? Dirigist Deflation Scaremonger Dr. Webster the Griffin Tarpley comes here to get "Paultard News" for his radical progressive radio programme "World Crisis Radio" all the time! He must've mentioned Daily Paul half a dozen times over the past couple of years.

That's kinda why I mock him here often. I listen to him mock us, and he reads me mock him. Its a bit like Rick James and Charlie Murphy.

The older I get, the more I think, "What isn't like Rick James and Charlie Murphy?"

There is also a Dog at the Daily Paul

At least one. Probably more.

do not worry if rand paul is in it, i do not bother sharing it. not worth my time.

Ron Paul 2016

It's me. I cannot lie.

I have on numerous occasions discussed subjects broached on the Dailypaul with outsiders. I stand guilty as charged.

Maybe it's being leaked...

through the internet?

Can't tell if this post if sarcasm or not..

I assume it is... Because the alternative would be quite sad.

The DP is certainly up to date, but not leading the entire internet on breaking news.. That's what an rss reader is for.
