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.
(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.
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.
PAULTICAL TICKER with Jack Hunter (RONPAUL2012.COM) – I keep reading these stories about what happened in Nebraska yesterday, where phrases like “Ron Paul’s last stand” and reporters saying things like “it’s all over for Ron Paul” are used liberally.
This is stupid. These reports are stupid. They may be accurate in the immediate technical electoral sense, but are wholly inaccurate in the much more pertinent and larger sense when reporting on anything concerning Ron Paul and his very large, vocal and influential movement.
PATRIOTS AND PAULIES (Politics & NEWS) – In essence, political candidates “are” the donations they keep. The top contributors to Mitt Romney’s campaign? Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse Group and Morgan Stanley.
Are all super PAC ads created equal? Not according to Google Politics & Elections who looked at YouTube viewer counts last March and found that Super PAC sponsored YouTube ads supporting Congressman Ron Raul are viewed more than YouTube content posted by super PACs (independent expenditure-only political action committees) for all the other GOP Presidential hopefuls combined.
14 Conspiracy Theories That The Media Now Admits Are Conspiracy Facts
— Michael Snyder (BLN Contributing Writer)
How many times have you heard the mainstream media dismiss certain points of view as “conspiracy theories”? It seems as though one of the easiest ways to brush something off is to label it as something that only “conspiracy theorists” would believe. Well, you know what? A whole lot of the time the “conspiracy theorists” are right and the mainstream media is wrong. In fact, we owe a great debt to “conspiracy theorists” because they will go places and investigate things that the mainstream media would never even touch. The reality is that the mainstream media only tells us what the government and the big corporations want us to hear, and much of the time it is those in the alternative media that are left with the task of trying to figure out what the real truth is. So don’t look down on conspiracy theories or conspiracy theorists. In a world where almost everything we are told is a lie, the truth can be very difficult to find.
The following are 14 conspiracy theories that the media now admits are conspiracy facts….

A vote for Mitt Romney is a guaranteed vote and support to reelect Obama both which in turn, are votes for The Banksters and Wall Street Big-Money. Eating right out of the hands of The Powers That Be! I hope you Romney supporters realize this fact. Bye-bye our way of American life… Jamie Trent – FB
