Rand Paul: I'm kinda surrounded here...

Rand Paul sparred with fellow Republican hopefuls last night. Drawing some heat from the crowd, he separated himself from his more hawkish colleagues.

“I’m a big fan of trying the diplomatic option as long as we can…I do think diplomacy is better than war…what are we gonna do? Are you ready to send ground troops in Iran? Are you ready to bomb ‘em? Are you ready to send 100,000 troops?"...

Ted Cruz countered,

“This is the worst negotiation in the history of mankind,” Cruz said, predicting an Iranian nuclear strike in “Tel Aviv, New York or Los Angeles.”

Why You Must Not Sign A “Refusal To Vaccinate” Form – At least, if you want to keep your kids that is

The “Refusal to Vaccinate” form was created by the American Academy of Pediatric’s ‘legal department’ as a response to the growing number of toxic vaccines recommended by them and the growing number of parents who are becoming educated on this issue. According to the CDC our children should now receive 37 doses of vaccine between 0-16 years. [See Vaccine Schedule]

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Sheriffs are campaigning to pressure Google Inc. to turn off a feature on its Waze traffic software that warns drivers when police are nearby. They say one of the technology industry's most popular mobile apps could put officers' lives in danger from would-be police killers who can find where their targets are parked.

What's with The Economist's strange and ominous 2015 cover? (for those who have eyes to see)

Ever play that game in Highlights Magazine as a kid called "hidden pictures?" I'm not sure how many free thinkers are left on the DP, but those in the know, know that the elites like to announce what they are going to do ahead of time. What can be gleaned from this strange cover of a publication known to be connected to the Rothschild dynasty? Vigilant Citizen and the resulting commentary makes for an interesting analysis.

Bankrupt? Who’s Bankrupt?

A few years ago, with tongue securely in cheek, I wrote about the Fed buying Treasury Bonds. I tried using the absurd to make a point. I explained this would be like issuing your own credit card, buying everything you want, paying for the credit card with your checking account, and filling the checking account with cash advances from the credit card. I was just kidding. I never thought this would actually happen. It has. Similarly, years ago when I wrote about the nationalization of GM and the financial system I was again trying to use absurdity to make a point. My problem is that it’s getting hard to be absurd in America today.

When I read the headlines all I do is mutter to myself, “You just can’t make this stuff up” because when I did no one took me seriously.

Today with the Fed buying treasury bonds America has in effect declared bankruptcy. We might not think so because the mainstream media hasn’t mentioned it but our creditors have noticed. China wants higher interest rates and collateral. Dancing down the yellow-brick road to Insolvency City our leaders announce a new trillion dollar something or other every day. A trillion here, a trillion there and eventually trillion doesn’t sound so shockingly big any more.

Daddy issues: Are Ron Paul’s hard-core stands a problem for son’s presidential bid?

While Rand seeks donors, his father talks secession

By David A. Fahrenthold | The Washington Post
January 25, 2015

HOUSTON — Rand Paul wants to lead the United States. On Saturday in Texas, his father was speaking at a conference about how to leave it.

“A lot of times people think secession, they paint it as an absolute negative,” said former representative Ron Paul (R-Tex.). After all, Paul said, the American Revolution was a kind of secession. “You mean we should have been obedient to the king forever? So it’s all in the way you look at it.”

This weekend was a crucial one for Rand Paul, the Republican senator from Kentucky and un­declared candidate for the presidency. He was in California, trying to line up donors at an opulent retreat organized by the billionaire Koch brothers.

At the same time, his father — retired after 12 terms in Congress and three presidential runs — was in the ballroom of an airport hotel here, the final speaker at “a one-day seminar in breaking away from the central state.” He followed a series of speakers who said that the U.S. economy and political establishment were tottering and that the best response might be for states, counties or even individuals to break away.

“The America we thought we knew, ladies and gentlemen, is a mirage. It’s a memory. It’s a foreign country,” Jeff Deist, Ron Paul’s former press secretary and chief of staff, told the group. “And that’s precisely why we should take secession seriously.”
