Ron Paul Subcommittee to Examine Fractional Reserve Banking and High-Powered Money

Live Stream, 2pm ET: Link - lower left corner

WASHINGTON, June 25 – Congressman Ron Paul, Chairman of the Domestic Monetary Policy and Technology Subcommittee, announced today that the subcommittee will hold a hearing this week to examine fractional reserve banking.

“Fractional reserve banking underpins the entire banking system, yet its effects on society are completely ignored,” Paul stated. “Our financial system consists of vast amounts of credit pyramided on top of very small amounts of real savings—all backstopped by explicit and implicit government guarantees. This poses significant risks to the stability of the economy and monetary system, which ought to give pause to any serious observer of financial markets. Hopefully this hearing will create a greater understanding among the American people about the nature of the banking system, and begin the movement towards serious systematic reform,” Paul continued. “The American people deserve a financial system that is stable and efficient; one that operates without taxpayer subsidies and bailouts.”

An Open Letter to the Ron Paul Communities Regarding Lawyers for Ron Paul

Last week, I decided to support and volunteer as a process server for LFRP because I felt that their efforts were worthwhile in the pursuit of the cause of liberty and for the possibility of Dr. Paul still becoming the next president of our withering country.

This was a purely personal decision, based on the same logic that I used to determine who I would support for president in 2012; at this moment, I feel this is the best course of action.

Is US government setting stage to outlaw Vitamin D like raw milk?

(NaturalNews) The United States government has just crossed the threshold of nutritional insanity with an announcement that postmenopausal women should avoid taking vitamin D. This announcement, made by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, is tantamount to declaring war on nutrition. In a nation where 90+ percent of the population is chronically deficient in vitamin D, any government edict that encourages people to avoid this lifesaving vitamin will only result in more cancer, more Alzheimer's disease, more bone fractures, more diabetes and more kidney disease.

... which is, of course, exactly what the medical establishment wants. After all, how are the drug companies supposed to make money treating patients with cancer if they prevent cancer themselves by using dirt-cheap vitamin D?

The mainstream media, predictably, has dutifully followed the government's anti-nutrition advice by distorting the conclusions of the study and running headlines like this one in USA Today, the corporate-run disinfo outlet:

Ron Paul in the Congressional Baseball Hall of Fame

On Thursday, Paul will be inducted into the CQ Roll Call Congressional Baseball Hall of Fame.

Paul was a solid performer for seven years on the Republican team, but he is being honored largely for a single moment — the night in 1979 when he smacked a pitch from former Ohio Democratic Rep. Ron Mottl over the left-field wall at Four Mile Run Park in Alexandria, Va., a Fenwayesque shot of about 310 feet.

It is believed to be the first out-of-the-park homer in the history of the Congressional game. (The only other, by Illinois GOP Rep. John Shimkus, hit the foul pole in 1997 at Prince George’s Stadium in Bowie, Md. Others have hit inside-the-park homers.)

Paul will become the 22nd member of the Hall of Fame in a ceremony before the start of the 51st Annual CQ Roll Call Congressional Baseball Game on Thursday night at Nationals Park.

Jeb Bush Praises Mitt Romney, Says He Has ‘Common Ground’ With Obama

At the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials or NALEO in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., Bush began by giving Romney a nod.

“We heard an excellent speech, I thought, from Mitt Romney, who is a supporter of education reform and of school choice,” Bush said.

However, in his next breath he aligned himself with Romney’s rival and repeated what has gained him headlines over the last few weeks, but he deeply believes in: Working across party lines works as well as having a more open debate.

Town aims for food self-sufficiency by growing all its own vegetables

(NaturalNews) Different local authorities throughout the USA have been harassing homeowners for growing veggies or herbs in their front lawns. But in the small town of Todmorden, England, a grass-roots food movement has been started by one woman who grew veggies in her front yard and let neighbors pick them free.

It took six months before neighbors and passers-by got the notion that Mary Clear's lowered fence and signs encouraging people to pick veggies from her lawn was for real. Mary, a 56 year old grandmother, kicked off a scheme thought up with local Bear Cafe owner Pam Warhurst and others to engage in local guerrilla agriculture.
