As you may know, Dr. Paul just sent out an email stating that his event ".....will be the ONLY pre-Convention event at which I'll be speaking, so I hope to see you'll be able to make it."
We hope you'll make it too. As a matter of fact, when we learned he was having his own event we posted this: http://www.dailypaul.com/242552/paul-festival-plans-for-sunday
While we have been hopeful that there was a chance he would still make an appearance at our event, we now know definitively, that he will not. Of course, this is disappointing to us since we have been planning this event for many months now. But, we know first hand that he is very appreciative of our efforts and he told us he didn't want his event to interfere with ours. And of course it won't, as you can read in the above linked thread, we intend to fully support his event.
Paul Festival will provide a way, and a venue for supporters, in all our diversity, to converge on Tampa in a moment of celebration and unity with music, comedy, great speakers, and much more.
My team and I have been hard at work getting our rally ready for Tampa, and I'm happy to say things are coming together nicely!
Our theme for this event will be, "We Are the Future - A Rally for the Liberty Delegates." I'm sure it will not only be a great time, but it will also go a long way to proving you and I are the future of the Republican Party.
Has anyone else been noticing an increasing trend toward increasing Ron-Paul-friendliness in your areas? It seems like where I live, when only a month or two ago the general consensus about Dr. Paul was that he was too extreme, too radical; but now people seem to more and more be siding with his views and his supporters. They're being allowed on the local talk stations and people in general seem to be very disgusted with Mitt Romney. Almost like they'll be looking for a way out soon.

The Governor is ruling Nebraska with an Iron Fist and trying to crush Nebraska delegates who support Dr. Paul. Please help by commenting and let them know we will not stand for a crooked convention
"The Libor scandal is about to get a whole lot worse. And, that’s the good news.
Not only are at least twenty more big banks under investigation as part of a massive fraud to manipulate interbank lending rates that affect some $800 trillion in loans and derivatives, but the Bank of England is about to take center stage in the scandal.
And that’s bad news for central banks around the world.
I'd give that a big YES!!!!
"Is Mitt Romney's honeymoon with conservatives already over?
By The Week's Editorial Staff | The Week
It's been a brutal week for Romney in the conservative media, suggesting that Republicans are sick of their candidate's vagueness and health care fumbles
Mitt Romney's presidential campaign is taking it on the chin from the conservative media. With Team Romney failing to deliver a cogent message in the wake of the Supreme Court's game-changing ObamaCare ruling, Rupert Murdoch tweeted that Romney needed to dump "old friends from his team" and "hire real pros." ...
Yes. The honeymoon is over: "Romney is facing the backlash from conservatives that his opponents predicted in the primary, and it isn't pretty," says Matt Negrin at ABC News. The proximate cause is Romney's muddled, awkward message on the Right's No. 1 cause, ObamaCare, but that has simply opened the floodgates of criticism over Team Romney's inability to move the polls in his favor.

"If there was ever a clear cut case of good versus evil, then surely it is the contest between Julian Assange and most of the world’s governments. They hate him because he exposed their lies, their manipulations, and their routine violations of the most elementary rules of human decency. By publishing virtually the entire corpus of messages sent to and fro between Mordor Washington and their Nazgûl diplomats in the field, WikiLeaks has given us the true history of the world in modern times, or, at least, a good glimpse into its secret underside historians rarely uncover."

In the last few years, we have witnessed the rise of several protest groups and organizations that have made their voices heard in the public and in the media. On the left, there is the Occupy Movement, on the right, there is the Tea Party.
There is also a self-described "liberty movement," with strong libertarian convictions and influenced by the presidential candidacy and ideas of Ron Paul. Although both the Occupy Movement and the Tea Party highlight legitimate grievances, both groups have obvious inconsistencies and shortcomings. The more principled and focused liberty movement will undoubtedly have the biggest effect on public debate and long-term political trends.

Awesome parody video of LMFAO's "I'm Sexy and I Know it" song. These guys are great and spreading the word on the importance of agriculture in our society in a humorous way.
The Nightmare Scenario | What Really Happened
Let us start with some unpleasant facts.
1. The debt-based economy of the private central banks has failed and is collapsing.
By design private central banks such as the Federal Reserve, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the European Central Bank, etc. all create debt faster than they create money with which to pay the debt. Under the rules of private central banking money can only enter circulation as the proceeds of a loan at interest. All the so-called "bailouts" are simply more loans, plunging the subjugated populations deeper into debt. The private central bankers cannot change the rules without admitting to the public the system was flawed from the start and governments that sold their populations into the slavery of private central banking cannot change the rules without admitting they were stupid (or corrupt) for falling for the fraud in the first place.
Last week supporters of Federal Reserve transparency had a major victory when the House Committee on Government Oversight and Reform passed my Audit the Fed bill, HR 459 unanimously with all major audit provisions intact. This clears the way for a House floor vote expected sometime in late July, and with a whopping 263 cosponsors, the chances of it passing have never looked better!
We always knew that the financial markets were rigged, but this is getting ridiculous. It is now being alleged that 20 major banks have been systematically fixing global interest rates for years. Barclays has already been fined hundreds of millions of dollars for manipulating Libor (the London Inter Bank Offered Rate). But Barclays says that a whole bunch of other banks were doing this too. This is shaping up to be the biggest financial scandal in history, and criminal investigations have been launched on both sides of the Atlantic. What those investigations are likely to uncover could shake the financial markets to their very core. In the end, this scandal could absolutely devastate confidence in the global financial system and it could potentially bring down a number of major global banks. We have never seen anything quite like this before.
Iran’s plants, at Natanz, where uranium is enriched to 5 percent, and at Fordow, where it is enriched to 20 percent–both below weapons grade–are under constant U.N. monitoring. Iran has offered to surrender its 20 percent uranium and cease enriching to that level, if the West will provide isotopes for its nuclear medicine and lift some of the more onerous sanctions.
No deal, says the United States. Iran must give up enrichment entirely and indefinitely.
This is the sticking point in the negotiations. Iran contends that as a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, she has the right to enrich uranium for peaceful purposes. On this, the Iranian people stand behind their government.
Should this deadlock be a cause for war?
New Jersey’s branch of the American Civil Liberties Union has taken its mission of policing the police to smartphones.
The ACLU has released an app called “Police Tape” that lets users secretly record police stops.
The ACLU’s Alexander Shalom said the app is easy to use.
“There’s really only three buttons that the user needs to deal with,” Shalom said. “There’s a know your rights button that educates the citizen about their rights when encountering police on the street, in a car, in their home or when they’re going to be placed under arrest, and there’s a button to record audio and a button to record video.”
