KRISTI KIRK (PATRIOTS AND PAULIES POLITICS & NEWS) – Whatd’ya get when you cross a Libertarian with a Republican? A “liberty Republican?” Or a “Libertarian Republican” perhaps?I prefer, “Republitarian.” But then I think the elephant-porcupine hybrid makes a ‘cute mascot.’
According to the Washington Times, in polite circles, Republicans who borrow a few pages from the Libertarian Party playbook are called “Libertarian leaning” Republicans — which a new poll reveals is now about 41% of the GOP voter base (or closer to 80 percent if you include Republican-leaning Independents.)
Yes, you read it correctly.
Republicans in record numbers are leaning more toward the ideals and principles of Libertarianism — and if you are a fiscally conservative Republican with a moderate social conscience, chances are you’re one of them!
12 Images That Demonstrate How The New World Order Openly Mocks Us
If you know what to look for, it quickly becomes obvious that the elite of the world are not even trying to hide their insidious plans for the planet. They hope to unite the entire globe under their leadership, and they don’t think that we are strong enough or smart enough to stop them.
Ron Paul Makes His Case for Liberty on College Campuses
- Molly K. Hooper
Ron Paul plans to deliver speeches on college campuses next year and beyond, continuing his message of liberty and reducing the size of the federal government. In an interview with The Hill, the retired Republican Rep. from Texas clearly indicated that he isn’t ready for the rocking chair.
KRISTI KIRK (PATRIOTSANDPAULIES.WORDPRESS.COM) -Blogger, author and New York City based financial advisor, Josh Brown, The Reformed Broker, recently came out with a list naming 25 financial media players who he feels are today’s most dangerous. “Dangerous in a good way,” says Brown. Beyond ranking at the top of their fields, Brown says these financial journalists are the movers and shakers who pose a danger to the status quo.
“We tried it [the establishment's] way, allowing the banks and other corporations to write the laws and make all of our decisions for us. Turns out, that’s not true democracy or capitalism, it’s something else entirely, and we’ve all had enough,” Brown says,
“These are the folks leading the charge to take it back.”

Damon Poeter (PCMAG.COM) – Help me help you or help me hurt you? National Security Agency chief Gen. Keith Alexander’s first-ever direct appeal to hackers to assist with national security was greeted with polite applause at the DefCon conference in Las Vegas on Friday but afterwards, it was a different story.
“The people who would say we are doing that should know better. That is absolute nonsense,” Alexander said, referring to former NSA employees who have told the media that the agency does just that.
PATRIOTS AND PAULIES – What did Michelle Obama say that has everyone up in arms?
Did Lip Readers Make Out The First Lady’s
All this for saying, “All this for a dam flag?” Read My Lips: We will probably never know for certain what Michelle Obama was caught on video saying during the 9/11 ceremonies. As for the lip readers? It’s a case of he said she said. K. Kirk, Serfs-Up.net
In the wake of the shootings that took place to day, I would just like to say that the Navy members and their families; as well as any others that were impacted by this tragedy are this evening in my husband and I's thoughts. We hope that peace and comfort come to your soul during this time and we hold the memory of those that have been lost in our hearts.
The recent uproar over armed EPA agents descending on a tiny Alaska mining town is shedding light on the fact that 40 federal agencies – including nearly a dozen typically not associated with law enforcement — have armed divisions.
Paul, a libertarian, has been critical of the agency’s large-scale gathering of data on Americans’ phone calls and Internet activities, saying it’s an invasion of citizens’ personal privacy.
Christie has defended the program, arguing in large part that New Jersey residents are still suffering from the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks that killed nearly 3,000 in New York, at the Pentagon and on the hijacked plane that crashed in Shanksville, Pa.
THE PEOPLE’S POST – “Presidents’ Day,” as it is now commonly called, retains some vague connection to Washington’s birthday, if only for the purpose of advertising “Washington’s Birthday sales.” The traditional birth date of February 22 has been stretched to create a Monday holiday — this year on February 18 — to accommodate America’s patriotic devotion to three-day weekends.
But Lincoln’s birthday, February 12, appears to have lost some of its former aura, since all presidents are now supposedly covered by the amorphous, all-purpose “Presidents’ Day.” (Let us now praise Millard Fillmore.) That is ironic, because despite the energetic work of some recent revisionist historians, Lincoln remains the most revered — some say “deified” — of all our presidents. Historians have repeatedly ranked him the greatest U.S. president, with FDR coming in second.
PATRIOTS AND PAULIES POLITICS AND NEWS – An estimated 450 veterans and active duty military “marched on” the White House last February on President’s Day to show their support for Ron Paul’s run for President. During the demonstration the Veterans stood saluting for a duration of one second per each soldier that had died in combat or committed suicide since President Obama became Commander in Chief. The soldiers also did an about face turning their backs on Barack Obama’s White House.
RON PAUL’S TEXAS STRAIGHT TALK – Last year more US troops died by suicide than died in combat in Afghanistan. More than 20 percent of military personnel deployed to combat will develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Some 32 percent of US soldiers reported depression after deployments. More than 20 percent of active-duty military are on potentially dangerous psychotropic drugs; many are on multiple types. Violent crime among active duty military members increased 31 percent between 2006-2011.
Our best hope of restoring rights, liberties and justice in America hinges upon a spiritual rebirth and reawakening. There really isn’t any hope of that happening without it. While thoughts and focused intentions are very powerful, the most powerful essence in the world is truth. NWO politicians who pose in phony prayer for photo ops are trying to steal the power of the people by tricking us into thinking their god is the only truth. But if we can all come together and focus on discovering the real truth, their false god and imagined power will disappear like a shadow from the light.
(COMMUNITIES.WASHINGTONTIMES.COM) — Suddenly, Ron Paul’s supporters are relevant. You remember Ron Paul — that old Republican guy who ran for president. His non-interventionist foreign policy ideas were considered kooky during the Republican debates but have since landed him interviews on Fox.
He is the guy who barely cracked 10 percent in the primaries but managed to attract tens of thousands of people, from all walks of life, to his rallies during the primary season. People lined up to hear Paul speak about free-market economics and Constitutional government.
KRISTI KIRK(PatriotsandPaulies.wordpress.com) – Do the TrapWire and Facebook facial recognition scandals leave you feeling uneasy? Want to KEEP YOUR FACE from being DATABASED? Simply wearing a hat, sunglasses or even a mask does little to prevent facial recognition by today’s sophisticated video surveillance systems and security cameras utilizing facial recognition software. Fortunately however, for those who value privacy, there are still a few tricks that may keep your face from ending up in a government, marketing or law enforcement database. Watch this video release from ANONYMOUS. The secrets it reveals about fooling facial recognition cameras and video surveillance systems are so good, we had to share it!
Facebook dropped its controversial facial recognition feature for European users following a privacy backlash from users and regulators.
Facebook terminates face recognition tool in Europe, while depleting privacy in the US (RT.com) – US social media giant Facebook is deleting facial recognition data collected from European users and plans to terminate the feature there soon. Meanwhile, the software is gaining traction in the US, attracting apps that now recognize faces in public.
When users “tag” a friend in a photo uploaded to Facebook, the service stores and remembers facial features that identify that unique individual. Facebook is then able to suggest “tags” on newly uploaded photos to match pictures with names. Since 2011, the Ireland-based Data Protection Commissioner (DPC) has led an investigation into Facebook to see if the social media giant complied with European privacy laws. Continue reading →
About one-hundred delegates from all over the country loudly chanting “So Goes Maine, So Goes The Country” march out of the Republican National Convention sympathetic to the plight of the Ron Paul Maine delegates who were not seated at the convention in Tampa, Florida August 29, 2012.

AURORA GEIB (NaturalNews) — The recent roll out of smart meters has brought about mixed reactions from consumers. On one hand, there are activist groups broadcasting the health and privacy concerns that smart meters may potentially have. On the other, the utility companies are championing the advantages of smart meters in the face of a $3.4 billion fund stimulus given by the government for smart grid technologies. (It sure is nice of them to be advocating energy savings while they line their pockets with all that money from the government.)
JANE AITKEN (BEDFORD PATCH) - There is much abuzz over Mitt Romney’s announcement naming Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan as his vice presidential running mate.
But many see the naming of Paul Ryan as unimpressive and even premature and just another indication of a desperate move by Mitt Romney to distract from the idea that the “presumptive nominee” has in truth, been fighting for his political life.
“When the Fed talks about independence, what they’re really talking about is secrecy. What the GAO cannot audit is monetary policy. It would not be able to look at agreements and operations with foreign central banks, and governments, and other banks, transactions made under the direction of the FOMC [Federal Open Market Committee], and discussions or communications between the board and the Federal Reserve system relating to all those items. And why this is important is because of what happened 4 years ago. It’s estimated that the amount of money that went in and out of the Fed overseas is $15 trillion. How did we get into this situation where Congress has nothing to say about bailing out all these banks?”
Are Western governments waging a war on people power? The signs of a sprawling police state in the U.S. are abundant and conspicuous: a specialized military police trained for civil unrest, a wall-to-wall spying apparatus monitoring ordinary citizens, media censorship, re-education camps, etc.
