Rand Paul Moves Opinion Column To Breitbart News

By Alexander Marlow

Breitbart News Network is pleased to announce that it will be the new home of Kentucky Senator Rand Paul's editorial column.

Paul, a Tea Party favorite and son of former libertarian Congressman Ron Paul, is widely perceived as one of the frontrunners for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.

Breitbart News reported last month that it has gone through a period of exponential growth. The conservative media outlet has surpassed websites such as Politico, the Daily Beast, and The Washington Times, according to web traffic analytics firm Alexa.

Doug Stafford, a political aide to the Senator, told Breitbart that "Paul is pleased to partner with Breitbart News and looks forward to the new, wider audience for his columns."

12 months ago i would have been disappointed.

but honestly i just don't care any more.

I like the news on

I like the news on Brietbert.com but I think the design is horrible. Everytime I click on an article it starts playing a video about football or some dumb shit. I hate websites that automatically start playing videos of random stuff. Alot of the times I'll go on Drugereport and open up 10-15 articles at the same time to read through (in tabs) and I end up with multiple videos playing in the background that are both annoying and have nothing to do with the article itself.

That he would go to a neocon site like breitbart, He'll fit right in.

Can't handle politics anymore...

Ugh. More preaching to the

Ugh. More preaching to the choir. This does not help to grow his exposure to independents or moderate/conservative leaning Democrats.

He's better off there anyway.

Far more of an audience of potential Republican primary voters.

That's excellent news.

Disappointed In Rand

I am disappointed that Rand got caught up in plagiarism. I have no idea if he knew words were being attributed correctly or not, but it is hard for me to believe that he knew since he is an educated man. This hurts like hell - Ron got caught up in a whole who wrote what and by whom scandal so one would think Rand would have DTA with writing for you down pat. I am not sure if Rand can recover from this, but obviously he needs to pen his own columns. Also, is everyone with me that Doug Stafford sucks?

I don't see it like that

I made a top post just for my own compact package and references of the indeas that I'm getting about this.. not too long ago Diane Feinstein was telling us what a journalist is, and Glenn Greenwald has been debating what a journalist is, and the journalists and knocking Rnad for not being a journalist.. and it seems to me, that the bottom line here is noe one is going to speak for themselves..

But to me, this Rand thing, he was surprized, because it's petty, and I don't see it a plagerism because he was taking ideas to make a point, not the claim the idea.

He was calling for a Fed Audit in the Senate.

Then the media gang tackles him.

My guess is other news outlets see the potential benefit of Rand's opinion.

Some don't buy the smear campaign.

Virtually no one reads news

Virtually no one reads news papers anymore. It's a wonder why the Washington times lasted this long.

I say..

Screw The Washington Times anyways, they've never been a friend of liberty in my books. They're probably trying to make the fallout of this whole "plagiarism" BS hurt as much as possible and it's becoming quite obvious.


Che bella


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

Would that not..

Be "Che Bello"? Not to be a pain in the ass but I'm actually curious as I always thought Che Bella was the feminine singular and Che bello the masculine?


Bella is the feminine and Bello is the masculine, yes

...but there's no object (either masculine or feminine), so you could use either: but the convention is to use the feminine.

Va bene?

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

The (implied) object is "thing" ("cosa" - feminine).

And yes, it is a beautiful thing. Che bella!

Aha, that makes sense


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