I was surprised

to hear President Obama say in his speech to Congress last night that when there's no lending families can't afford to buy things like houses and cars.

Gosh, how honest can you get? I was a bit surprised at his candor.

Unfortunately I'm afraid most people won't even give it a second thought that there's SOMETHING TERRIBLY WRONG WHEN PEOPLE HAVE TO BORROW TO LIVE THEIR LIVES.

Phase 3: Rally to Repeal the Fed! - Operation Commences April 25th

When I see Barney Boo Boo disrespect Ron Paul I WANT this

criminal syndicate government to pull out all the stops and accelerate the collapse. Then when Franks is picking through garbage cans in an alley... I want to give him a lesson.

To some of us,

that concepet is as basic as the ABC's and 123's. Greed and envy took over for the rest.

Hey ....

Our traffic went up over 500 just after RP was on.

This was great publicity.


good as gold



Bernake owes Frank

a big old hug and kiss for saving his ass from Dr.Paul...

And Frank will make sure

he gets them. He must really love Bernanke's a** to save it that way.

"It's just one big club... and WE ain't in it!"

I wish RP would as three simple questions.

1. How much does the US owe the FED?
2. Who owns the FED?
3. When was the last time they were audited?

Round two of Bernanke questioning: Paul cut off on BloombergTV

At 7:55 a.m. Pacific time (Feb. 25), I was watching Bloomberg TV, which was showing the House Banking Committee questioning Bernanke. Dr. Paul was introduced, and he began speaking further on the subject of credit vs. capital. After about two sentences, Barney Frank took over the microphone, scolding committee members for chatting while Paul was speaking. Paul spoke about half a sentence further, then Bloomberg talking heads cut him off, with twenty seconds of blather. Then they went to commercials. Did anyone get an uncensored view on CNN or CSPAN?

That is exactly what CNBC did at the same time!

It's probably just a coincidence.

All the networks show commercials, just before the hour. But here's a thought: did Barney Frank deliberately give Dr. Paul his turn to speak at exactly the time when he knew the networks would all be doing other things? We'll never know -- and there's no way to prove it, unless Barney fesses up.

Dr. Paul was recognized, by Barney, for only two minutes. It's

a case of who controls what goes on the record in that small space of 120 seconds. I've watched Barney Frank conduct these proceedings and, prior to members Q&A participation, he's said that the time given to a member for Q&A includes not only the time to ask a question but also the time taken to answer it. Frank has specifically given the case of a member, allowed say 5 minutes by the chair, taking 4mins and 55 seconds to ask a question. According to Frank, when a member does this, they need not expect an answer from the witness. Therefore, whose remarks would you want to hear? Dr. Paul's or Benochio's?

And Bernanke replied... ?

It's a frustrating video to watch. Paul, once again, takes Bernanke to the woodshed over irresponsible fiscal policies, but we are never treated to Bernanke's response.

It would most likely be the standard shuck-and-jive he has given before, but I would think that - in fairness - his response should have been included.


is famous for this....just uses his time to blurt out facts. Their really is no reason for Ben to respond....BECAUSE HE CAN'T!

This was his opening statement, and Bernanke is not

given the opportunity to respond at this time. In Ron Paul's first 5 min. questioning period, he restated the facts---then asked Bernanke questions, and Bernanke had plenty of time to respond!
Bernanke then takes his time with negligible statements to use up time so Ron Paul has no time to ask ANOTHER question. He hates it when Ron Paul questions him.

Why isn't this video

Why isn't this video available anymore? I would like to watch it.

works fine for me

I like most of you truly admire Dr. Paul

for his intellect, behavior, honestly, gentlemanly manners and bravery. I only wish he would change his tone from being a bit on the whinney side, to one that better reflects the authority that his content deserves.

You have to understand that most casual observers form their first impressions by style, tone and appearance. That's not what is important to me but that is the reality!

Dr. P - Please slow down and learn to put in the all important Presidential pause every now an then.

Can you imagine,

day after day standing up alone to these monsters?
He's in his 60s and has been at this for decades. If he's a little tired once in a while, he's still stronger than almost all Americans far younger.
I know you mean you comment helpfully, it's just that I think we owe him so much, including some slack.

I must agree.

The fact that he has a gentle manner helps at times too, though. I think it flows both ways.

The 'voice of authority' is a good thing, but I think Ron Paul wins converts easily by not making people angry. I'm unsure that he needs any makeovers.

I have this big and bold on the top page of my site, Ron Paul

is on of the greatest if not the greatest congressman we have ever had.


As usual, Dr Paul tells it exactly like it is.

How much clearer could he possibly be? He lays it out in such plain language, and it's the most obvious solution to this mess. Why are they refusing to understand something so simple? Bernanke has to be somewhat intelligent to be in the position he's in, but trying to reinflate a false bubble is pure idiocy.

Re: As usual, Dr Paul tells it exactly like it is.

Uuuuhhh, maybe because they'd have to get back to work (like the rest of us) as opposed to just stealing A LOT every day...

At the very least, he was in a room full of warm bodies

and not talking to an empty floor. Warm, yes....awake? You call it.

There is beauty in simplicity. The truth is nice to hear for..

a change. Thank you Ron Paul.

yes there is!

it was AWESOME how he put that. i think my friends might just grasp the concept from this. might. i'm not holding my breath.

TUMA - got that visual?

I wish I could draw...
Can you see Ben with the deflated balloon hanging out of his mouth, cheeks red and puffed, but all that happens is smoke comes out his ears? With RP patiently explaining, "Ben, you can't reinflate that..."

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.
