Nigel Farage: The Purple Revolution

How did Farage persuade Reckless and Carswell to ditch the Conservatives?

Would UKIP ever do a deal with another party?

How have three near-death experiences shaped Farage's politics?

How does Nigel feel about controversial kippers and their high-profile gaffes?

Twenty-one years after its formation as a single-policy protest party, and on the eve of what promises to be one of the closest, most exciting general elections in recent memory, the truly remarkable rise of UKIP and its charismatic leader, Nigel Farage, have caused nothing less than a tectonic shift in British politics. And the aftershocks are being felt far beyond the corridors of power in Whitehall…

This book, written by the man who orchestrated that extraordinary rise, is not an autobiography, but rather the untold story of the journey UKIP has travelled under Farage’s leadership, from the icy fringes of British politics all the way to Westminster, where it is poised to claim the popular vote. In it, he reveals for the first time exactly how, over the last few years, Farage and his supporters have ushered in a very English revolution: secretly courting MPs right under the nose of the political establishment, in the tearooms and wine bars of the House of Lords.

Ron Paul's Texas Straight Talk 3/23/15: After a Twelve Year Mistake in Iraq, We Must Just March Home


Written By Ron Paul | Sunday, March 22, 2015

Twelve years ago last week, the US launched its invasion of Iraq, an act the late General William Odom predicted would turn out to be “the greatest strategic disaster in US history.”

Before the attack I was accused of exaggerating the potential costs of the war when I warned that it could end up costing as much as $100 billion. One trillion dollars later, with not one but two “mission accomplished” moments, we are still not done intervening in Iraq.

Ted Cruz to announce presidential campaign on Monday?

Rumor is that Ted Cruz will announce presidential candidacy on Monday in order to get a few steps on the rest of the field.

This will surely hurt Rand Paul the most - as the conservative MSM will jump on the Cruz bandwagon and undercut any momentum Rand Paul has generated by 'playing the game'. In a bit of political 'blowback', remember, Ron Paul endorsed Ted Cruz when he was running for senate just a couple years ago.

That's right, Sparklemuffin. Or, maybe you would prefer Skeletorus. Both are recently discovered members of the genus Maratus of the family Salticidae.

In other words, spiders.

I just found out about these fascinating little guys last night, they're amazing, but I'll let the video 'splain:
