The Last Hour
Gingrich applauds, while others wonder whether its pyrrhic

The Washington Times
Rand Paul is courting black voters unabashedly, traveling a path not taken by most Republican presidential hopefuls since Jack Kemp blitzed urban America with his message of economic hope and opportunity two decades ago.
From his speech at a historically black university to his essay decrying the militarization of local police, Mr. Paul is clearly trying to bridge a gap between the party of Abraham Lincoln and a minority voter base that has massively voted for Democrats.
But whether the senator from Kentucky can leverage his libertarian conservative views and anti-government message into a presidential electoral advantage depends on factors that may extend beyond his control.
Awesome Nature Photography: A Falcon Nesting In A Tree
I have received many remarkable nature photographs over the years but this photo of a nesting Falcon is perhaps the most remarkable Nature shot that I have ever seen. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Nature is truly breath-taking!
I've sent this to most of my older friends. The younger ones probably have never seen a falcon and wouldn't recognize it.
Egypt said it was "closely following the escalation of protests" after the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager by a white policeman on 9 August, reports the BBC.
Iran added its voice to the criticism, with Majid Takht-Ravanchi, the deputy foreign minister for European and American Affairs, saying the unrest was a sign of "the phenomenon of racism" in the West.
In light of the horrific situation in Ferguson, an op-ed ran in today's Washington Post, chillingly titled, "I'm a cop. If you don't want to get hurt, don't challenge me." Not "obey the law." "Don't challenge me."
Here's a bit of what this upstanding public servant has to say:
I don't know if that story of the U.S. journalist who ISIS claims to have beheaded is true or not.
But their point is well-taken; that continued U.S. intervention in the middle east will cause more blowback.
Remember the Bush arguments about how terrible Saddam was? And the daily lies from the White House designed to get American acceptance for an invasion of Iraq?
How is this any different?
Obama in the media saying the exact same things about ISIS so we can bomb away.
Sunil Dutta, a 17-year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department and professor of homeland security at Colorado Tech University, has a suggestion for victims of police violence searching for someone to blame: Look in the mirror.
This just about says it all.......
Happy Birthday, Dr. Paul!!!!!!!!!!!!
Simply share your favourite Ron Paul moment weather its of the man or eating pizza locked out of a delegate meeting (in video or pictures, keep text short).
I'll kick it off with pure class...
My daughter and I went to see Tom Petty at the Gorge in WA last Friday evening. I usually buy a t-shirt while I'm at the show and it is usually hot there so I wanted to wear a shirt I could take off and leave at the show since I planned on wearing whatever shirt I bought at the show.
I went to my dresser drawer, I usually have a few old t-shirts in there that are ready to be sent to goodwill, to find a shirt to wear and when I opened my drawer, the first shirt I saw was a black one that was folded up nicely, my girlfriend is really a great woman, and I picked it up and held it by the top and let the bottom fall towards the floor and when it unfolded, I quickly realized it was a Ron Paul t shirt from the 2012 campaign. The shirt felt really great in my hands as they were actually made pretty well. I remember thinking about the time I had spent on the campaign, going to see Ron in Seattle and talking to many people about Ron. I went so far as to put up signs in my yard and windows of my house. I had buttons I would pass out when someone would show some interest in talking about Ron Paul and what he stands for. I had never before been involved in politics, other than talking with people about it. I remember all the great hope I had for Ron winning and being able to start the turn around of our country and what it could mean for the future of us all.

We opened up registration for the first time in a long time, and that revealed some bugs in the site that are in need of fixing. The DP is like a big old drafty house, in need of some maintenance and repair, and for that I need your help.
I went to set up a donation widget at that great free site chipin.com, and its gone! That internet institution, ChipIn is no more. That's what happens to free resources on the internet. Eventually, they disappear.
Please don't let that happen to the Daily Paul. You can make a one time or recurring contribution to the DP with your PayPal account or your credit or debit card.
PayPal address: email@example.com
Since ChipIn is no more, and there are no other free substitutes that I can find, I will be updating the thermometer manually.
