Rand Paul 2016 Watch - August 12th thru August 18th

August 20th, 2013

It may be summer recess for the US Senate, but Rand Paul continues to make the media rounds to support the relaunch of Government Bullies- the paperback version of which was released earlier this month. The Senator continues to be a prominent voice in the national dialogue, weighing in prominently on foreign aid to Egypt reforming the mandatory nature of the nation’s drug laws. The dust has begun to settle following the war of words between Dr. Paul and Gov. Chris Christie, although the press is not particularly interested in letting the issue go. Also, the Senator is receiving scrutiny over his ongoing support for the reelection of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConell (R-KY). The alliance is arguably hypocritical for a man who rode in on the 2010 tea party rebellion.

Politics of Freedom Update - August 10th thru August 16th

August 20th, 2013

It’s getting harder to justify continuing this podcast, seeing as Dr. Paul has both a podcast and a television channel for his supporters. It will be a tough habit to break- as I’ve been continuously updating this site since January of 2010! And truth be told- I enjoy listening to the weekly updates and such. The Ron Paul channel is up and running- and the content is superb! It has received a fair amount of coverage in the media, and many of the people whose shows the Congressman has joined over the years have returned the favor, so Dr. Paul could promote his new endeavor. As always, there's plenty of developments in the areas of civil liberties, government corruption and the national security state!

August 15th, 2013

In his latest Texas Straight Talk column, former Congressman Ron Paul reacts to the Pentagon's deadly drone attacks in Yemen, which have allegedly killed dozens of innocent civilians. This is a foreign policy of madness! If Americans continue to support this kind of bloody aggression around the world, we cannot be surprised if it leads enemies of the US government to strike back against our people in retaliation. The fact that such attacks have not occurred inside the United States since 9/11 proves that the purported terrorist threat has been overstated from the beginning.

Rand Paul 2016 Watch - August 5th thru August 11th

August 14th, 2013

Despite the Congressional recess which began this week, Rand Paul continues to remain in the headlines and as a popular topic of conversation in the media. The Senator’s ongoing war of words with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie appears to be coming to end…for now. But the ramifications for the identity of the Republican Party will be felt in the coming months. Sen. Paul’s interview with NPR- in which he chastised host John Harwood for dwelling on Jack Hunter’s foibles and reading insults from ideological foes- raised eyebrows and made news. Particularly lame attack pieces continue without respite. Some of us have been disappointed by Rand’s tactical and political decisions since he was elected in 2010. But the entire establishment is teamed up against him. He can only withstand the barrage of negativity if his support base stands with him!

Politics of Freedom Update - August 3rd thru August 9th

August 11th, 2013

In this week’s update, coverage continues from YAL’s 5th annual national convention. Rep. Amash continues to be front and center in opposition of NSA spying and the domestic national security state. Rand Paul continues to battle New Jersey Governor Chris Christie- who did clearly start the ordeal. It was the media that inserted Rand’s name- but there’s no doubt who Gov. Bacon was talking about. The Ron Paul Channel is set for launch on Monday, 8/12. Unfortunately, it will be at a cost of $9.99/mo. Not sure what the network will me for this podcast- as together with Ron Paul’s America, it seems that the Doctor is swooping in on the liberty media market share. In other news, the leftists and their minions have apparently manufactured a new scandal, involving Iowa State Senator Kent Sorenson. There is no evidence that Dr. Paul had any knowledge or involvement in this- why would one State Senator’s endorsement be worth $200k?

Rand Paul 2016 Watch - July 29th thru August 4th

August 9th, 2013

Welcome to this week’s Rand Paul 2016 media watch update. I apologize for falling behind a bit as of late- I’ve been putting in long hours on the job. Sen. Paul continues to thumb his nose at the leadership of both parties- namely, the advocates of the so-called “bipartisan consensus” on foreign policy. The Senator staged an attempt to defund foreign aid to the Egyptian government. He has also begun his formal advocacy for school choice.

Politics of Freedom Update - July 27th thru August 2nd

August 7th, 2013

While Ron Paul doesn’t make quite as many headlines now that he is ‘retired,’ the increasing influence of Justin Amash and Thomas Massie is making it easier to fill up hours of content for the podcast. All of our favorite elected leaders were together last weekend for the 5th annual Young Americans for Liberty national convention. The festivities went off in the midst of increased 2016 speculation for both Rand Paul and Ted Cruz. Establishment hacks and liberal Republicans like Chris Christie continue to attack libertarian thought regarding the Anglo-American empire and the domestic national security state.  Also, the Ron Paul Channel is said to be launching this month. Although I’ve heard few details about the schedule or content, it looks as though ripping and reposting content will not be welcomed!

Ron Paul Gives Keynote Speech at the Young Americans For Liberty’s National Convention (8/2/2013)

August 7th, 2013

On Friday evening, former congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul delivered the keynote address to the 5th Annual Young Americans For Liberty National Conference. Over 300 enthusiastic students eagerly anticipated his arrival on the campus of George Mason University in Arlington, Virginia. The energy in the room proved that there is still a bit of juice left in the old liberty movement- if it can be harnessed by the next generation of leaders. Dr. Paul told students of their obligation to advance the cause of liberty and personal freedoms by using current technology such as the Internet to spread ideas. He also commented on current issues including the actions of whistleblowers Edward Snowden and Bradley Manning, and the closing of U.S. embassies and consulates due to terrorist threats. Following his remarks, he answered a few questions from students. Video coverage is available via C-Span.
