The attacks on Rand Paul begin

I've noticed in the last two to three days many news organizations and talking heads have begun their assault on Rand Paul, and it seems to coincide with his filing of his law suit against President Obama over the NSA spying of American citizens. Below are a just a few, of many, articles describing these attacks.

It is nothing personal

Just an occupational hazard.

In case you haven't noticed, the attacks on Christie have begun as well. That whole bridge thing, in case you haven't heard of it.

The media's job is to sell newspapers, and commercials. The higher their ratings and the more papers they sell the more money they make.

There is no grand conspiracy other than capitalism at work.

All art is only done by the individual. The individual is all you ever have, and all schools only serve to classify their members as failures. E.H.

Over the target.

Well, it seems Senator Rand Paul is now over the target.

Rand Paul didn't plagiarize

Rand Paul didn't plagiarize his NSA lawsuit. It's been debunked.

The attacks on Rand started a long time ago, even here on the DailyPaul. And they ave continued since. He gets a really bad rap in the comments section on a lot of these sites.

I personally have issues with him too, but mostly because he tries to hard to be a politician and dance around a lot of the issues sometimes, instead of being straight forward like his dad..

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

why even give traffic to these goons?

Update! Bruce Fein Says His Ex-Wife Did It

UPDATE: Bruce Fein came forward Thursday to dispute Milbank and the (Washington) Post's version of events. MSNBC reported that Paul’s political action committee RANDPAC forwarded an email from Fein to journalists disavowing his ex-wife Mattie’s characterization of the situation.

“Mattie Lolavar was not speaking for me,” Fein wrote. “Her quotes were her own and did not represent my views. I was working on a legal team, and have been paid for my work.”

The, "mainstream," media is wrong...again.

Good try guys, good try.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Didn't Bruce Fein work for Ron Paul?

Yes, he did.

And now this?

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Rand Paul plagiarism allegations over NSA? Nonsense

Lawyers don't own any part of the lawsuit. It is all clients' property. You can hire and fire lawyers at will. If not, the legal system doesn't work.

Another MSM diversion from the serious issue.

It was debunked.

Well at least those sites are already regarded as pathetic

I was banned from Politico last month with no explanation, I don't remember NYDailyNews publishing any of my comments any time I have tried, and NationalReview just seemingly pre-emptive auto-delete blocked any of my comments because I successfully posted this to that story, and they deleted this as well:

Updated screen capture, from my Disqus profile

The comment was "Marked as spam" and deleted. NationalReview is a pathetic site.

In a nutshell

“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
"Gold is the money of kings; silver is the money of gentlemen; barter is the money of peasants; but debt is the money of slaves."

Unfortunately, it was just a matter of time that they would do

this to Rand, just like they did Ron. But, we can fight back and counter the attacks by leaving our comments at these various sites. Thanks for your post. ( :
