Rand Paul Surge Sparks Republican Rush to Find 2016 Alternative

By Jonathan Allen
Jul 14, 2014 12:00 AM ET

Republican jockeying in the 2016 U.S. presidential primary is becoming a contest over who will become the alternative to the Tea Party’s candidate.

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is the favorite of the small-government movement, and Republican rivals are starting to gang up on him to argue that he could dim the party’s chances against a Democratic Party unified behind Hillary Clinton.

Rand Paul bodyslams Rick Perry in Politico op-ed – "On foreign policy, Perry couldn’t be more stuck in the past"

Rick Perry Is Dead Wrong

July 14, 2014

There are many things I like about Texas Gov. Rick Perry, including his stance on the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution. But apparently his new glasses haven’t altered his perception of the world, or allowed him to see it any more clearly.

There are obviously many important events going on in the world right now, but with 60,000 foreign children streaming across the Texas border, I am surprised Governor Perry has apparently still found time to mischaracterize and attack my foreign policy.

Rick Perry, Neocon Tool – His pathetic "comeback" is going to go nowhere - fast

by Justin Raimondo
July 14, 2014

The media hates Republicans, and so naturally they’re elevating Texas Governor Rick Perry to the status of a potential 2016 GOP presidential contender who must be taken seriously. After his last embarrassing run – embarrassing not only for him, but for the much-maligned state of Texas (see the video above) – one would think he’d put his presidential aspirations in the back of the garage, along with that Stairmaster he never uses. But no: dumber than a steer who’s been zapped by a cattle-prod and still won’t move, Perry is going along with the joke. He’s been busy lately inveigling himself into the good graces of those Republican grandees who think they can dictate whom the candidate will be. And he’s doing that by taking on the prospective candidate the GOP Establishment is determined to stop at any cost: Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky).

Retro Report: Checking the Media's Integrity

Retro Report is a relatively new (2013) journalistic website that goes back to look at news stories promoted in the media, but long since forgotten, to see if the reporting was actually true or BS.

According to the website:

How often does a great story dominate the headlines, only to be dropped from the news cycle? How often do journalists tell us of a looming danger or important discovery – only to move quickly to the next new thing? What really happened? How did these events change us? And what are the lingering consequences that may affect our society to this day?

Couple of weeks ago I purchased silver at $18.75. Did everyone else? That's about 8.9% in 30 days. In 5 years it is up 67%.

ah... Thank you Dr. Paul

Bitcoin Hedge Fund

A new $200 million hedge fund has been formed that will exclusively trade Bitcoin. Is there even $200 million in Bitcoin out there? I don't know, but I wonder.

It is run by a former JP Morgan trader. Usually, I would think this is a positive thing, but in this case, I wonder whether (a) it is a legitimate investment opportunity for hedge fund investors, or (b) it is an attempt to control the Bitcoin market.

Interesting, either way.

Ron Paul's Texas Straight Talk 7/14/14: What’s Missing in the Current Immigration ‘Crisis’ Debate? (VIDEO)

Ron Paul's Texas Straight Talk 7/14/14: What’s Missing in the Current Immigration ‘Crisis’ Debate? (VIDEO)

by Ron Paul | Sunday, July 13, 2014

Over the past several weeks we have seen a significant increase in illegal immigration, as thousands of unaccompanied minors pour across what seems an invisible southern border into the United States. The mass immigration has, as to be expected, put an enormous strain on local resources, and it has heated up the immigration debate in the US.

Most liberals and conservatives miss the point, however, making the same old arguments we have all heard before. Liberals argue that we need to provide more welfare and assistance to these young immigrants, while conservatives would bus them to the other side of the border, drop them off, and deploy drones to keep them out.

Neither side seems interested in considering why is this happening in the first place. The truth is, this latest crisis is a consequence of mistaken government policies on both sides of the border.

How the US Govt bears substantial responsibility in Israel savage miliarism and aggresion

A central premise of US media coverage of the Israeli attack on Gaza - beyond the claim that Israel is justifiably "defending itself" - is that this is some endless conflict between two foreign entitles, and Americans can simply sit by helplessly and lament the tragedy of it all. The reality is precisely the opposite: Israeli aggression is possible only because of direct, affirmative, unstinting US diplomatic, financial and military support for Israel and everything it does.

Fart smells have health benefits, according to Exeter University researchers

The smell of flatulence has secret health benefits - and could help stave off cancer, strokes, heart attacks and dementia, scientists have revealed.

Hydrogen sulfide is one of a number of potent smelly gases produced by bacteria as it breaks down food in the gut.

It is toxic in large doses but in tiny amounts it helps protect cells and fight illness, according to boffins at Exeter University.

McCain: Rand Paul part of ‘Fortress America’ wing of GOP

By Martin Matishak - 07/13/14 10:03 AM EDT

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Sunday waded into a brewing foreign policy debate inside the Republican Party, saying Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) represents a more isolationist outlook.

Paul is “part of a wing of the party that has been there prior to World War I, that is a withdrawal to ‘Fortress America,’” McCain said on CNN’s "State of the Union."


McCain, who serves on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee with Paul, acknowledged the freshman senator has a “far different view than mine of the world.”
