Ron Paul's Texas Straight Talk 10/20/14: National Service is Anti-Liberty and Un-American (VIDEO)

Written by Ron Paul | Sunday, October 19, 2014

Youtube: http://youtu.be/iqe-sp4lHx8

Former Clinton Administration Labor Secretary Robert Reich recently called on the government to force young people to spend two years either “serving” in the military or performing some other type of government-directed “community service.” Neoconservative Senator John McCain has introduced legislation creating a mandatory national service program very similar to Reich’s proposal. It is not surprising that both a prominent progressive and a leading neocon would support mandatory national service, as this is an issue that has long united authoritarians on the left and right.

Proponents of national service claim that young people have a moral obligation to give something back to society. But giving the government power to decide our moral obligations is an invitation to totalitarianism.

Mandatory national service is not just anti-liberty, it is un-American. Whether or not they admit it, supporters of mandatory national service do not believe that individuals have “inalienable rights.” Instead, they believe that rights are gifts from the government, and, since government is the source of our rights, government can abridge or even take away those rights whenever Congress decides.

Open Carry Preacher Terry Holcomb arrested at San Jacinto County Texas Commisioners Meeting

Update, Terry was interviewed on Raging Elephants Radio, waiting for archive to be posted.

Terry was one of our Liberty Candidates for State House in Texas this year. He was released from jail yesterday.


Terry Holcomb is accused of disrupting the meeting because he was not allowed to make public comments as the regular portion of the meeting was adjourned for an executive session.
“We’re not gonna allow public comments today?” Holcomb said to the four county commissioners and County Judge Fritz Faulkner.
“It’s not on the agenda,” Faulkner replied.
“That’s unacceptable,” Holcomb said.
Faulkner then told Holcomb he could “go outside and discuss it,” but the meeting was moving forward with an executive session.
Saying again that the situation was “unacceptable,” Holcomb accused the court of taking the rights of the people.
When Holcomb made no effort to leave the courtroom, Faulkner said to him, “You’re dangerously close to disrupting a public meeting.”
Holcomb told the judge that he was denying the people their right to have their voice heard.
Faulkner responded by saying, “You can go out there and talk to the people. We’re fixing to have executive session.”
Still seated in his chair, Holcomb said, “You didn’t want to hear from the citizens and you’re gonna hear from them. You are gonna hear from me. You are not going to silence us by your abuse.”
At that point, Faulkner called for Pct. 2 Constable Roy Pippin Jr. to remove Holcomb from the meeting chamber.
“You have been requested to remove from the court,” Pippin told Holcomb.
“I am not leaving. I am not leaving,” he replied.
Directing his comments to commissioners, Holcomb then said, “And y’all commissioners that are allowing this, you are all cowards. All of you.”
Pippin implored Holcomb to leave the room but Holcomb remained in his chair and demanded to know what law he had broken.
“No law is broken. You were given an order to remove from court,” said Pippin, adding moments later, “By not following my order, you are resisting arrest. Do you want to go to jail for resisting arrest?”
Faulkner told Holcomb that commissioners court meetings are not a political stomping ground.
“That’s all you want to do,” he said.
Outside of the courtroom, Holcomb was confronted by Sheriff’s Deputy Paul Sowell who asked to have a “private word” with him.
Holcomb asked if he was being detained and Sowell replied, “You’re about to be,” prompting Holcomb to ask if he had committed a crime.
“I didn’t say you committed a crime,” said Sowell.
Sowell placed Holcomb in handcuffs and escorted him away from the premises.

Matthew Short:

“I just talked to Corpl Morgan at the jail where Terry Holcomb Sr. is being held. Morgan has been instructed by his superiors not to tell callers, or the press why Terry is being held. I was told that He would be arraigned “some time tomorrow”. i was told ” direct phone calls, and questions to the district attorney”. I have a very large problem with some one being held, and a member of the press not being allowed to know why they are there. i very plainly asked the deputy if he was instructed to answer the way he did or if he di not understand the question. he stated” I was instructed not to say why he is here sir.” When asked if he would be arraigned tomorrow Mr Morgan informed me he would be in the presence of one of 4 JP some time tomorrow…. Mr Morgan also informed me that the office would be open around 8 am for further information. I believe that we should continue to call until we get some real answers where my buddy Terry is….”

James Franklin:
“Thank God for real men like Terry Holcomb Sr.”

Jason Orsek:
“Talked to Terry ‘s wife Gina .
Terry is fine. As of now no charges filed. Arrested for disturbing a meeting.
Got to see judge in morning to see if any official charges will be filed. Was already informed he can PR bond. (For whatever charges)
Terry says be sure and hound them on the phone But be respectful and he will have a full briefing for everybody tomorrow.”

Quantitative Easing Over in October?

With T-bill rates getting hammered this morning (5,10, and 30-year), my DP instincts are telling me that Yellen is pushing buttons at the Fed to lower interest rates and 'stimulate the economy'. And again, my coworkers and superiors are telling me that that's not the case. In fact, one of my guys on the investment side of the firm actually went on to say that QE is over! Can you believe that?

So, my question is:
-Is there any evidence to QE being halted in October?
-Do you have any charts or graphs to support/refute this claim?

Ron Paul's Texas Straight Talk 10/13/14: Liberty, Not Government, is Key to Containing Ebola(VIDEO)

Link thanks Minnesota Chris


Written by Ron Paul
Sunday, October 12, 2014

According to Forbes magazine, at least 5,000 Americans contacted healthcare providers fearful they had contracted Ebola after the media reported that someone with Ebola had entered the United States. All 5,000 cases turned out to be false alarms. In fact, despite all the hype about Ebola generated by the media and government officials, as of this writing there has only been one preliminarily identified case of someone contracting Ebola within the United States.

Ebola is a dangerous disease, but it is very difficult to contract. Ebola spreads via direct contact with the virus. This usually occurs though contact with bodily fluids. While the Ebola virus may remain on dry surfaces for several hours, it can be destroyed by common disinfectants. So common-sense precautions should be able to prevent Ebola from spreading.

Lawsuit Filed: Seventeenth Amendment Not Ratified (Devvy Kidd - News with Views)

Does the truth matter anymore in this country? Once I began my journey now going into my 24th year, all I found was nothing but lies, lies and more lies. Elected officials as well as unelected adminsitrative honchos like Lois Lerner of the IRS mess do nothing but lie to we the people. Both parties, county, state, federal, it doesn't seem to matter. The agenda is all important regardless of party.

"Our" government for longer than I've been alive and regardless of which party holds "power" in the Outlaw Congress or which puppet occupies the White House, has lied to us about everything from The Gulf of Tonkin 'incident' dragging us into the undeclared Viet Nam "era" to the true nature of who the federal income tax applies to, TWA Flight 800, OKC, 9/11 and every scandal in between like Benghazi and Fast and Furious. .

One man seeking the truth about two constitutional amendments, Bill Benson, discovered that both the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution were not properly ratified and therefore are laws that don't exist. For Bill's efforts, his life was made hell. Bill was railroaded into prison while Americans sat in front of their football games, lined up at some electronics store for a new gadget or stampeded to Macy's for a sale.

The Sixteenth Amendment is commonly known as the "income" tax amendment. On January 19, 2001, Larry Becraft, a constitutional attorney with more than 35 years experience in federal courts, filed a lawsuit on behalf of Bill Benson in the State of Oklahoma. Larry and I had the Wallace Institute at the time. The purpose of that lawsuit was to finally expose the non-ratification of the Sixteenth Amendment. What happened was all to familiar in courts for decades; the truth didn't matter. This is an interview with Larry about that lawsuit.

Ron Paul's Texas Straight Talk 10/6/14: The Real Status of Forces in Afghanistan and Iraq


by Ron Paul
Sunday, October 05, 2014

After 13 years of war in Afghanistan – the longest in US history – the US government has achieved no victory. Afghanistan is in chaos and would collapse completely without regular infusions of US money. The war has been a failure, but Washington will not admit it.

More than 2,000 US fighters have been killed in the 13 year Afghan war. More than 20,000 Afghan civilians were also killed. According to a study last year by a Harvard University researcher, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will cost in total between four and six trillion dollars. There is no way of looking at the US invasion of Afghanistan and seeing a success.
