Dr. Ron Paul's TheHill Op Ed: The Libya fiasco and the Folly of Intervention - Sept. 14, 2012

The Libya fiasco and the folly of intervention

By Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.) - 09/14/12 11:27 AM ET

The attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya and the killing of the U.S. ambassador and several aides is another tragic example of how our interventionist foreign policy undermines our national security. The more the U.S. tries to control the rest of the world, either by democracy promotion, aid to foreign governments, or by bombs, the more events spin out of control into chaos, unintended consequences, and blowback.

Unfortunately what we saw in Libya this week is nothing new.

In 1980s Afghanistan the U.S. supported Islamic radicals in their efforts to expel the invading Soviet military. These radicals became what we now know as al-Qaeda, and our one-times allies turned on us most spectacularly on September 11, 2001.

Latest G. Edward Griffin interview is a gem (as usual)

http://youtu.be/sFii8vqVTTg

What else is new? G. Edward Griffin continues like the Energizer Bunny, doing so incredibly great with his public speaking style. Here is his latest interview from 3 days ago. Great to see him staying so right on the message & doing this at his advanced age.

As always goes on to say: General elections are bunch of rubbish distractions from real issues.

Jesse Benton Responds: Why I joined Mitch McConnell’s team

I know you're angry, but consider upvoting post, rather than downvoting it. Perhaps, others want to read it?

By Jesse Benton | Daily Caller

I discovered Mitch McConnell on May 22, 2010.

Of course, as a budding young politico, I had followed Sen. McConnell for more than a decade. I respected his achievements and understood his importance, but it was that day that I was first allowed an inside look at the man who led my party in the United States Senate.

FIVE Elected Maine Delegates are Running for Office!

Try as they might, the GOP establishment just can't seem to keep those stubborn Liberty Mainers down! Proud of how Maine stood up for liberty in Tampa? This is your chance to show it!

FIVE of the Duly Elected Maine Delegates (http://MaineDelegates.com) to the GOP Convention are running for the Maine Legislature, and they are not really getting the support that they should from their party for these campaigns. The help of our community is really need to get these heros elected.

A Breath of Liberty in Arizona ~ Saying no to corruption in Arizona GOP

Arizona’s State Convention was a joke. Liberty delegates and their votes were cast aside and left out in the cold despite having a massive voting bloc.

We’ll we are not standing for it anymore. WE are passing resolutions condemning the actions of the AZ GOP leadership and kicking out the charlatans. Here is a video showing the people standing up against corruption. You can too!

This also provided a great moral boost for our liberty movement in AZ! Video below:

Marc Faber: "Fed Will Destroy The World"

"Everything will collapse" is the consequence Gloom, Boom, & Doom's Marc Faber sees from the Fed's latest 'stimulus' (and the fallacy and misconception of how money-printing can help employment). In a wondrously clarifying interview on Bloomberg TV this morning, Faber explained why he was 'happy', since "the asset values of his holdings will go up" but as a responsible citizen he is worried because "the monetary policies of the US will destroy the world." It truly is class warfare under a veil of 'its good for you' as he notes: "the fallacy of monetary policy in the U.S. is to believe this money will go to the man on the street. It won't. It goes to the Mayfair economy of the well-to-do people and boosts asset prices of Warhols." Congratulations, Mr. Bernanke.

Video below. Must-watch (or read the transcript) - it is truly remarkable.

Ron Paul: Danger Signal

Danger Signal

In response to yesterday's announcement from the Federal Reserve, Congressman Ron Paul issues the following statement:

"No one is surprised by the Fed's action today to inject even more money into the economy through additional asset purchases. The Fed's only solution for every problem is to print more money and provide more liquidity. Mr. Bernanke and Fed governors appear not to understand that our current economic malaise resulted directly because of the excessive credit the Fed already pumped into the system.

Check out one of the top stories on Politico right now...

I dunno, is this how it's supposed to be? Are we as a movement going to be co opted and diluted? It sure seems so.

What do you guys think?

Politico: The two men couldn’t be more different on paper: One is a five-term septuagenarian, career politician and the embodiment of the Republican establishment; the other a 49-year-old tea party firebrand who never before held elected office and the de facto leader of the libertarian movement.

But behind the scenes, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and freshman Sen. Rand Paul are charting anything but divergent paths. They are methodically forming a tight-knit alliance to bridge the divide between the sparring factions of their party, an effort that could boost their own political careers in the process.

Would you look at that. The Daily Paul is alive and well!

Ron Paul was denied the nomination by the RNC. Jesse Benton has gone his own way. Gary Johnson wasn't endorsed. Rand Paul hasn't been dubbed the new boss. Ron Paul isn't running third-party.

Shouldn't these things mean that the Daily Paul would dry up and disappear?

But in fact, there has been excellent content and discussion. The grass roots are growing into a friggin' tree here. There is hope for Ron Paul to run again in 2016, and people are keeping their eyes on other important offices up for grabs.

Do you know what this reminds me of? Hope. I don't mean Obama "hope". I mean something more like "Jakob the Liar" kind of hope...though I think we're a bit more optimistic.

No matter what the power-lusting politicians do, we have formed our army. We're a rag-tag bunch of who-knows-what, and we're regularly clicking the "reload" button on the Daily Paul website, but the unavoidable fact is that we are still here.

Yes, we are still here.

I know what it means to me. What does that mean to you?
