Video Update: Newt Gingrich on the Hannity radio show recognized the Ron Paul movement ...

http://youtu.be/jjmbl_XnQiQ

... Hannity was asking Newt what Romney's first big challenge would be in the campaign from here on out. Newt said Romney has to deal with Ron Paul at the convention (At that point I was jumping up and down - LOL), and Hannity was eerily ... i'll repeat eerily silent when Newt said that .... Hannity didn't say a word after that .... It was rather awkward. I think Hannity was caught off guard by Newt saying that. Then he changed the topic to something else about the campaign.

Hannity's scared to death of the Ron Paul movement, because he knows if .... no, rather WHEN that movement takes over, it's the end of his show - LOL!

South Dakota for Liberty operation is up and running!

The Campaign may have given up on Primaries, but we haven't.

On June 5th, 2012, registered Republicans in South Dakota will vote in the Republican presidential primary. Recently, the official Ron Paul campaign announced it will fully channel its financial resources and staff to delegate and convention operations instead of upcoming primary states, like South Dakota. Consequently, it's up to grassroots supporters of Dr. Paul and his message, to carry the torch and deliver a strong showing on June 5th.

http://www.southdakotaforliberty.com/

Please help us out. We need to try and raise between $10,000 and $25,000 in the next week or so for this to have maximum effect. We already have a few big donors lined up but every little bit helps.

Ideas For the Post-Campaign Future

Following the 2012 nomination, win or lose, the movement and community that has coalesced around Dr. Paul's ideas will have some decisions to make about the future.

Time, resources, and energy are always limited, and how we spend them will be an important choice we have to make as individuals, small groups and collectively as a movement.

Major Tea Party Announcement in NJ!

May 21st, 2012 | For Immediate Release

A Statement from Tea Party Groups of New Jersey

Monmouth County Tea Party Coalition | Ocean County Citizens For Freedom | Bayshore Tea Party Group | Tea Party of Middlesex County

No longer will we be forced by both political parties and the media to choose between the lesser of two evils. We say, not on our watch will we ever give in to this sort of tyranny again. This game ends right here, right now! Endorsing Mitt Romney and his record of left-leaning policies would be a complete hypocrisy that collides with everything the Tea Party Movement stands for.

So, it is with great pleasure and honor that We of the above mentioned Tea Party Groups of New Jersey, announce our full endorsement of Dr. Ron Paul for President of The United States of America 2012. Dr. Paul's 20+ year voting record as an ardent constitutional conservative speaks profoundly of his integrity both as a representative of the people and as a human being. Dr. Paul's message of Limited Constitutional Government and Individual Liberty is what motivated the Tea Parties into action to begin with and this message will continue to resonate within our movement until America is restored to her former glory and is once again a beacon of freedom.

Awesome Article and Video! Ron Paul wins Minnesota and takes on Romney on his home turf !

* Excellent article with video by Stephanie Ealy..please share!

Ron Paul supporters everywhere may have been prophetically chanting when they yelled "President Paul" as the 2012 Presidential candidate not only came out victorious in delegate count in Minnesota but in several other states as well this weekend according to RonPaul2012.com.Ron Paul, marching to the beat of a different drum by saying he'll cut a trillion his first year in office, turn the lights out on the IRS, among countless other promises he can back up with years of consistent voting has caused hundreds of thousands of Americans to wake up. Those who have joined the throngs, throw off their past "sheeple" behavior, begin by doing their internet homework and march with Paul carrying a torch of liberty and hope toward the red, white and blue aiming to save the dollar and keep the eagle strong in a revolution that surely has left the mainstream media and those not in sync in a quandary.

Doug Wead: Romney Fraud at Arizona GOP convention

"“They took a bunch of our winners off and then stuck on a bunch of their losers. At first they had a total of 58 elected, most of them were ours. Then it all turned.” – Shawn Dow, Ron Paul State Coordinator.

According to many sources, Ron Paul supporters won a clean democratic majority of the delegates at the recent Arizona State GOP convention but Mitt Romney had an advantage that in the end the Ronulans could not match. Romney had Nathan Sproul, a political operative who was famously accused of voter registration fraud during the last election cycle. . . " (cont'd)

CS Monitor: Ron Paul 'bloodless coup' in Minnesota takes most delegates.

By Brad Knickerbocker | CS Monitor
May 20, 2012

Ron Paul’s forces pulled off “a bloodless coup” in Minnesota, as one observer put it, winning 12 of 13 Republican National Convention delegate slots in St. Cloud Saturday.

But what’s the point, given that the Texas congressman has effectively ended his campaign for lack of funds to carry on in the states yet to hold GOP primaries?

The campaign is more than the 2012 presidential election, Rep. Paul told supporters this past week.

Billionaire Investor Bets On Paul

May 19, 2012 | NPR

In the race for the Republican presidential nomination, only one candidate remains to challenge presumptive nominee Mitt Romney: Texas Rep. Ron Paul.

Even Paul has said he will no longer campaign in states that have yet to hold their primaries. And Paul has always been considered a long shot to win. But that hasn't deterred many of his hard-core supporters, including the Silicon Valley billionaire who has bankrolled the superPAC backing Paul.

JP Morgan's Potential Trading Loss Just Keeps Spiraling Higher

When JPMorgan first announced that its CIO office had blundered into a huge trading loss, the number was pegged at $2 billion, though the company said it could go higher. Then the loss was reported to be $3 billion. And now....

$5 billion or more? From the WSJ:

The nation's largest bank has said publicly that its losses on the trades have surpassed $2 billion, and people familiar with the matter have said they could over time reach $5 billion.
