"Big Legislation Leads to a Lot of Mischief"
Listening to this song hundreds of times:
The words pierce my heart every time with clear message.
Human beings must hear these words in order for us to change things on this planet.
Rand Paul on Fox News Hannity discussing term-limits, balanced budgets, reading the bills, and limited government.
"The administration should tell the American people why it's necessary for us to be there."
Sounds like someone asking Barack Obama why we are in Afghanistan. But that quote came from then-U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi in 2005, challenging George Bush to explain why the U.S. military was in Iraq.
Notice how clear she was. No ambiguity or confusion. Same thing with these comments, "I've thought this war was a grotesque mistake. It's hard for anyone to argue that the war meets the standard of a strategy for success."
Compare those remarks to this statement from now-Speaker of the House Pelosi on July 1, 2010, following her "Yes" vote for placing "tough restrictions" on Afghanistan war funding:
Our men and women in uniform continue to perform heroically in Afghanistan, Iraq and around the world, and it is critical that Congress has the most up-to-date information as we debate policies that impact our soldiers, their families and our national security.
I put together a new site: www.schiffstorm.com
I set the goal of 25,000 calls over next weekend, August 7-8, the last weekend before the CT Republican Primary. I think that's an attainable goal, looking at some of the better phone banking days. If we can encourage everyone who has ever phone banked to do it for an hour or two over that weekend, we will be there and more.
I also included photos of the mailers and embedded the TV ads.
Let's get this around as soon as possible so more people can get wind of it before Saturday!

An organization that tracks 250 million IP addresses a day has been developing portfolios on Internet users and handing the information to U.S. federal agencies as the latest incarnation of the supposedly defunct Total Information Awareness spy program is revealed.
Bruce Fein joined us to discuss his new book American Empire Before the Fall. During the interview he discussed WikiLeaks' recent release of classified documents, the Bush Cheney – Obama relationship, his opinion of President Reagan vs. Neoconservatives and of the Federal Reserve stated "The Federal Reserve Board is the domestic equivalent to the CIA in its secrecy.”
If you are in Michigans 3rd disctrict Vote for Justin Amash today!
View the election results as they come in at the following sites.
Justin Amash Leading in polls!
Some of the highlights from the article:
"State Rep. Justin Amash has opened a small lead over his two chief rivals in the 3rd Congressional District Republican primary, a Press poll finds."
"The Cascade Township Republican is favored by 28 percent, followed by state Sen. Bill Hardiman at 23 percent and former Kent County Commission chairman Steve Heacock at 17 percent, according to the poll by Practical Political Consulting."
"“I would say things are marginally in (Amash’s) favor, but it is by no means over,” Ballenger said.
He said a poll he ran in June had Hardiman at 23 percent, Amash at 17 and Heacock at 8, with 47 percent undecided.
“Obviously for Amash, things are moving in the right direction,” he said."
"Most expected Amash, 30, to run an aggressive campaign marked by his no-compromise stand against tax hikes. But he has surprised many by his ability to make the cash register ring.
His campaign took in $379,000 through July 14, while spending nearly $270,000 with $111,514 in cash on hand. Heacock took in $292,000 and spent $227,000, leaving $65,284 in cash. Hardiman raised $148,000, spent nearly $130,000 and had just $19,000 in cash."
Amash is trying to reach his goal of 10,000 fans on facebook and $500,000 raised. He's very close to reaching both goals and winning the primary. He's in a safe republican district so once he wins the primary the seat is pretty much guaranteed to be his.
Ron Paul Goes After The SEC's FOIA Exclusivity, Introduces SEC Transparency Act
by Tyler Durden on 07/31/2010 10:21 -0500
Just because being the most corrupt organization in the world was not enough, the SEC decided, courtesy of Donk (aka Frankendodd), that it is beyond accountability to anyone, even the constitution, after it was recently made public that the world's most incompetent and bribed regulators will continue watching kiddie porn, instead of regulatoring, only do so in complete opacity from now on, as in the future the SEC would be exempt from FOIA responses.
And with retail investors saying "no more" to trading stocks in a rigged casino that shares the same level of integrity as its regulator, and is programmed to generate profits for the house and the computers on 99.9% of trades (except of course for those newsletter and subscription peddlers who catch every single inflection point ever, and can predict what the market will do not only tomorrow but a week, a month and a year from now) the market will soon be a ghost town. Recent attempts by Senator Kaufman to bring some honesty to stocks have so far been met with failure as the Sisyphean task is far too great for any one individual.
Which is why we are glad to learn that Ron Paul has joined those few who still hold the long-forgotten dream that the market should be fair and impartial for all (and yes, that means eliminating discount window access for the chosen few Bank Holding Company hedge funds out there) and has introduced the SEC Transparency Act of 2010 (HR 5970), a bill designed to force greater transparency in the Securities and Exchange Commission.
This one is brilliant, he really get into it. Enjoy.
Congress Could End Obama’s Wars
by Ron Paul
Our foreign policy was in the spotlight last week, which is exactly where it should be. Almost two years ago, many voters elected someone they thought would lead us to a more peaceful, rational coexistence with other countries. However, while attention has been focused on the administration’s disastrous economic policies, its equally disastrous foreign policies have exacerbated our problems overseas.
Timothy McCollough freely admits that he stopped making payments on his Chase Manhattan credit card in 1999. He says he did not have the means to pay after he was disabled by a head injury that cost him his job as a school security guard.
But more than a decade later, Mr. McCollough, who is 52 and lives in Laurel, Mont., is still haunted by the unpaid balance, which was originally about $3,000.
In 2007, he was sued a second time over the debt, and this time the suit contended that he owed significantly more: $3,816 in credit card debt, plus $5,536 in interest and $481 in legal fees. As he did the first time, Mr. McCollough sent a handwritten note to the court explaining that the statute of limitations on the debt had passed.
“I have had no dealing with any credit card in 8 1/2 years,” he wrote to the court. “The pain they caused is worth more than the money they want.”
These remarks were given July 30th, 2010, at the campaign’s Freedom Concert. For those unaware, the campaign has been featured on four (4) front pages (see 2 of them here) of both of the district’s key newspapers during the past 6 days due to incumbent demanding that I be barred from debating him and also a character assassination attempt over a band that had volunteered to play at the concert.
