Maybe Pat wants a job with Fox News? He seems just as excited about this pick as William Kristol.

"...Romney is owed a debt for choosing a man of principles and conservative philosophy as a running mate, thereby giving this country a clear choice as to the future it wants to live in..."
All fascinating, but pay special attention from 3:50 on!

Ecuador to Grant Julian Assange Asylum, Report Says
BY KIM ZETTER 08.14.12 4:55 PM
After weeks with his fate hanging in the balance, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is about to be formally granted asylum in Ecuador, according to a news report.
Ecuadorean president Rafael Correa has agreed to give the WikiLeaks founder asylum, according to an official in Quito who spoke with the Guardian newspaper.
Unnamed government officials in Quito told the British newspaper that Assange had in fact been given an offer of asylum by Ecuador months ago, and that the offer had followed confidential negotiations between Ecuador and senior London embassy staff. But according to one Ecuadorean source, the British government “discouraged the idea” of offering Asssange asylum, and the Swedish government also was “not very collaborative”.
They are now called P.A.U.L. Festival which stands for "People Awakening and Uniting for Liberty"
"We love Ron Paul, he is the inspiration for the Festival.
We would give anything to have him speak or visit the Festival. For whatever reason he has decided against it. We did not seek his approval, or ask him to sanction this event, we just DID IT. Being the LIBERTARIAN MINDED PEOPLE we are, we did not ask for permission.
We are grassroots activists, not concert promoters, nor are we part of the (broken) GOP machinery.
Dr. Paul called us PERSONALLY a while back, thanked us, and wished our event success. But he found it necessary to hold his own event in which he had complete control of. This is understandable,
and we accept that, and have gone to great lengths to work it into our program.
Weeks after it was widely reported in the media that Ron Paul had lost his "last chance" to be eligible for the Republican nomination at the Nebraska state convention, Tampa Bay Online, the online subsidiary of the Tampa Tribune, has reported that a movement to nominate Ron Paul at the upcoming Republican National Convention may be "Romney's greatest fear."
"Romney's greatest fear could be a movement to nominate Paul from the floor of the convention, which could happen if five state delegations line up behind him."
This follows up a report in The New American in May which said of Paul's state-by-state delegate strategy:

Mitt Romney has picked the youthful warmonger Paul Ryan to be his running mate.
From my point of view, this leaves the junior senator from Kentucky, Rand Paul, standing near the altar like a jilted bridesmaid. Not a very pretty picture.
And now what has Rand Paul got?
I'll tell you in four words at the end of this article.
First, the bigger picture ... So far Rand's gamble – endorsing Romney – doesn't seem to be paying off. And there may be a salutary lesson in this.
TAMPA, August 14, 2012 – Ron Paul insists that the U.S. government shouldn’t go to war without a declaration of war by Congress. His son Rand has also taken this position, as have a few other libertarian-leaning Republican candidates. The U.S. Constitution delegates the declaration of war power to the Congress, but they have not exercised this power since WWII.
Why is this important?
Most people misunderstand the declaration of war power as “permission” to start a war. By that definition, George W. Bush argued that H.J. Res. 114 (October 16, 2002) fulfilled this constitutional requirement regarding the Iraq War. With that resolution, Congress authorized the president to use military force in the war on terror.
Just before the housing meltdown in 08, I noticed the media and markets were really jittery. I went into work and said to everybody that something was happening and that I believed the economy was about to crash. Sure enough.. a day or two later the meltdown happened.
Im not claiming to be psychic but I just had a gut instinct something big was about to happen and it did. Im having that feeling again.. Its my personal thought that if a crash happens it will be very close to the election. Either right before or weeks after.
What are your thoughts?
Lyndon Johnson's remarks at the signing of the Coinage Act, where he announces the first changes to our coinage (i.e. from silver to base metals) since the 18th century, and warns we have no idea of ever returning to the 18th century, and warns people not to hoard the silver coins still in circulation at that time:
Some have asked whether our silver coins will disappear. The answer is very definitely-no.
“Check in with your face” is the motto a U.S. marketing company is using to preface its new face scan deal-linking technology.
Redpepper, out of Nashville, TN, has developed technology that says it will save you money, however, the methods engaged are much more intrusive than your standard grocery store coupon.
The process starts when a “Facedeals” camera, mounted at a venue’s front door, scans and matches your face’s likeness to your Facebook profile, generating customized deals for your area according to your “likes.”
Chinese firms leave US stock markets amid complaints about price, accounting scrutiny
By Joe Mcdonald, AP Business Writer | Associated Press
BEIJING (AP) -- Just a few years after Chinese companies lined up to sell shares on Wall Street, a growing number are reversing course and pulling out of U.S. exchanges.
How’s this for a conspiracy of silence? With less than three months to go until Election Day, President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney have successfully avoided saying almost anything about America’s war in Afghanistan. Remember that war? You will at some point, however little the two candidates talk about it.
You can make your own guesses about why the candidates have said so little about Afghanistan—their positions are virtually identical, the economy is more important, etc. My own guess: neither of them knows what to do about the place. In a mere twenty-eight months, the United States is scheduled to stop fighting, and every day brings new evidence that the Afghan state that is supposed to take over is a failing, decrepit enterprise.

You’ve heard them on television and read them on POLITICO — cheerful, defiant statements from Republican political professionals about Mitt Romney’s bold masterstroke in tapping Paul Ryan as his running mate, and turning the 2012 presidential race into a serious, far-reaching debate about budgets and the nation’s future.
Don’t buy it.
Away from the cameras, and with all the usual assurances that people aren’t being quoted by name, there is an unmistakable consensus among Republican operatives in Washington: Romney has taken a risk with Ryan that has only a modest chance of going right — and a huge chance of going horribly wrong.
In more than three dozen interviews with Republican strategists and campaign operatives — old hands and rising next-generation conservatives alike — the most common reactions to Ryan ranged from gnawing apprehension to hair-on-fire anger that Romney has practically ceded the election.
