…Oh, Say, Can You See (that Drone)

February 23rd, 2013

The last several weeks have seen unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) make there way back into the news, as an Obama administration policy white paper was leaked to the press detailing a sketchy legal argument for the use of drones against American citizens. Both Ron and Rand Paul have been vocal opponents of this policy, as you have heard in the previous updates. This controversy has only ramped up in recent days due to John Brennan's pending nomination to head up the CIA. In his first confirmation hearing, Brennan- the US government's own 'Mr. Drone'- failed to articulate whether or not he felt Americans could be killed via drone here in America. As a result, Senator Paul has put a hold on Brennan's nomination until he gets some answers. This file contains commentary and conversation of this debate, as it has evolved over the last few weeks. This is the first installment of topical news coverage from a libertarian perspective. I'll post more whenever the news is compelling and plentiful.

Ron Paul’s America - Courtside Entertainment Group Demos

February 15th, 2013

On Wednesday, Dr. Ron Paul and Courtside Entertainment Group announced the former Congressman and Presidential Candidate will make his national radio and podcast debut on March 18, 2013. Ron Paul’s America will feature one of America’s most popular public figures sharing his thoughts and opinions on the issues listeners care about in twice daily one-minute radio commentaries with radio veteran and bestselling author Charles Goyette as his sidekick. In addition to the daily commentaries, Ron Paul’s America will also be available as a weekly podcast to satisfy the growing demand for on-demand digital content. At the group's press release link above, Courtside posted a series of eight demonstration clips, giving listeners a taste of what the segments will sound like. I took the liberty of naming the clips below. Topics of discussion include (in the order they are heard):

Ron Paul 2012: The Hail Mary - Plans C, D, and E

October 11th, 2012

Most of us have long ago had to accept the fact that Ron Paul will not be the 45th President of the United States. It's questionable if the man himself, ever wanted to win the office, as the campaign really stopped fighting back in March. We sought to win at the ballot box with the popular vote (without success), activists then infiltrated their state parties and picked up many delegate slots for a convention fight. But the Republican Party would not play fair, and the Paul contingent traveled home from Tampa with minimal gains. Yet several folks out there just won't give up, and have tried various other methods of promoting Ron Paul 2012 and laying the groundwork for the future. I probably should have posted the first two events sooner, but campaign coverage was much easier to come by at the time. The latest effort is for a national write-in campaign, which I'll continue to follow here on the podcast. Links to the original media sources are included in the file description, included audio can be heard in the order listed below:

Ron Paul Tribute, Rand Paul speaks at Republican National Convention (8/29/2012)

August 31st, 2012

Rep. Ron Paul did have an informal presence at the RNC in Tampa. Unfortunately, an unedited speaking slot was not part of the festivities. Instead, the party opted for a video tribute that was shown to the delegates on the floor of the Tampa Bay Times Forum on Wednesday. Prominent tea party Republicans like Sen. Rand Paul, Sen. Jim DeMint, and Sen. Mike Lee offered complimentary words about the Congressman's many years of service. Later, Sen. Paul spoke to the convention-goers about conservatism and what this election means to America.

Audio from the P.A.U.L. Festival (August 25th and 26th)

August 31st, 2012

After posting the audio of the Ron Paul campaign's formal gathering in Tampa Bay, I though I would post some sounds from the "fringe" element gathering at the Florida State Fairgrounds at the P.A.U.L. (People Awakening and Uniting for Liberty) Festival. PAULfest welcomed many of the liberty movement's most prominent thinkers, who were not invited to the campaign's official rally. The three day gathering welcomed thousands of Paulistas from around the country and featured speeches from various libertarian/Paul supporters. I included speeches from all the names that you'd want to hear (excluding a couple minor speeches that aren't yet posted on YouTube). Links to the original media sources are included in the file description, included audio can be heard in the order listed below:

Additional Audio from Ron Paul’s ‘We Are The Future’ Rally in Tampa, FL (8/26/2012)

August 31st, 2012

I thought I'd post a good portion of the audio from the festivities during the RNC. On Sunday afternoon, somewhere between seven and ten thousand Paul supporters packed the University of South Florida's (USF) Sun Dome in Tampa Bay, Florida to celebrate the campaign's successes and to honor Ron Paul for his service. If you are looking for audio of Dr. Paul's speech, it can be heard in its entirety here. This audio file contains additional music and speeches from the major rally, for your listening enjoyment. Much of the video from the rally can be watched at C-Span.org; however, I had to rip some video elsewhere since the satellite feed was cutting out (due to Hurricane Isaac). *If there is no link after the speaker's name, the remarks can be seen at C-Span.

Senator Rand Paul Responds to Endorsement Critics

June 15th, 2012

Ron Paul still remains silent about the campaign and why things were done the way they were, but Rand Paul has come out swinging in defense of his decision to endorse Mitt Romney. The Senator has a bad habit of pointing out abhorrent behavior (or language on certain message boards) and smearing all of his critics with the actions of others. Dr. Paul's prickly response was perhaps not what the movement was interested in hearing, but in reality, the endorsement is one of the most ceremonial of gestures. Sen. Paul continues to stick his neck out for the cause of liberty on a constant basis, and the included interviews in this file remind us of some of the important work he is doing.

Ron Paul 2012 - Campaign Related Talk Radio

June 12th, 2012

Don't listen to this audio if you are averse to hearing criticism of Ron Paul, his son, and his campaign staff. This file contains a block of Ron Paul related talk radio- particularly concerning the campaign developments of the last week. All the supporters are trying to figure out what happened with all those hard earned delegates and the anticipated fight in Tampa? What happened to the $500k that the campaign raised on the May 17th moneybomb? Where the hell is Ron Paul, and how come he won't formally address his supporters (outside of the occasional email)? What in Mittens Romney's political career suggests that the man's word is trustworthy? Is Rand Paul just another Republican politician? Are we all just overreacting to a campaign that fought long and hard, but came up short? I want some answers- but all we really have now is speculation. Links to the original media sources are included in the file description, included audio can be heard in the order listed below:

Ron Paul Concedes Nomination, Rand Paul Endorses Mitt Romney - Supporters React

June 11th, 2012

We all knew that it would take an extraordinary set of circumstances for Ron Paul to become the next President of the Unites States, but it's a shame that the campaign has to end like this. I'm concerned that the way the campaign has operated in the last several months, and the subsequent endorsement of Mitt Romney by Rand Paul, could potentially undermine Dr. Paul's legacy (and our movement's cohesion)  in the future. All kinds of theories have been put forth over the last few days to try and explain how we got to this point. This audio file contains additional coverage of the Rand Paul endorsement and the current state of the movement, along with commentary from many different voices affiliated with the r3VOLution. Some are being way too harsh in their critique of the situation- using words like "sellout" or "betrayal." The situation is only exacerbated by Dr. Paul's virtual silence over the coarse of the last month, and the campaign's poor communication with their supporters. We all want answers, and I'll continue to update the podcast as long as financially possible.

Audio from the Texas for Ron Paul Rally and Music Festival (5/19/2012)

May 23rd, 2012

Despite the campaign's disappointing concession of the 2012 Republican nomination, the grassroots continues to foment enthusiastic support for their candidate and their cause.  On Saturday in Austin, liberty-lovers from all around came to The Stage on Sixth to be apart of The Texas for Freedom Rally and Musical Festival. The free event was organized in support of the Ron Paul 2012 campaign and the upcoming primary in Texas, and included speeches by special guests and liberty candidates for office in the Lone Star state. Of course, Dr. Paul was not at the event, but the attendance seemed surprisingly low, nonethelss. I know, that with a lineup like that, I would have loved to attend!

Ron Paul 2012 - Campaign Related Talk Radio

May 17th, 2012

For the second time in the last week, I'm posting another compelling block of Ron Paul related talk radio for the many listeners who are likely uneasy due to the recent campaign announcement and Dr. Paul's media silence. Thankfully, recent campaign developments and author Brian Doherty's new book about our movement, Ron Paul’s Revolution: The Man and the Movement He Inspired, has fostered alot of discussion about the state of the 2012 race and the liberty movement more broadly. Links to the original media sources are included in the file description, included audio can be heard in the order listed below:

Is the Campaign Throwing in the Towel?

May 15th, 2012

Hell no...or at least, not exactly. On Monday morning, Ron Paul sent out an email/press release stating that the campaign will not formally contest any of the 11 remaining primaries before the convention. The campaign will instead utilize its resources at the various Republican state conventions taking place across the country, in an effort to secure the maximum number of delegates possible. This announcement has the Paul community in a frenzy, as the decision has understandably disappointed many supporters and activists who were under the impression that the campaign would fight it out to the end. The media has predictably ran with many headlines inferring that Dr. Paul has ended his bid for the White House, but prominent spokesmen for the campaign (as heard in this file) assure us that the race is anything but over. Make up your own mind after listening. This writer is somewhat distraught over the announcement. We all knew the Congressman lacked the war-chest to compete in huge statewide races; but just a week ago Dr. Paul stated his intention to win as many Congressional districts in Texas and California as possible. Hopefully, those who took the time to register Republican will still show up to vote, but this will surely demotivate some. One hopes this isn't some reflexive reaction to the bad PR from the contentious conventions in Arizona and Oklahoma over the weekend. More coverage will be included in the weekly update on Saturday.

Alex Jones Talks Vote Fraud and the Sinister Romney-Paul Alliance (MUUHAAHAA)

February 26th, 2012

Over the last couple of months, pundits (and the neocons in particular) have pushed a conspiracy theory that asserts some kind of nefarious back-room deal between Ron Paul and Mitt Romney- a quid-pro-quo, if you will. From the perspective of the neocons, this serves to undermine both men, in favor of Santorum and/or Gingrich. There has always been a lack of enthusiasm for Mitt Romney amongst the Republican electorate- demonstrated by the various GOP flavors-of-the-month. The challenge for the talk radio mafia is to crown a neoconservative/social-con alternative, thus demonstrating their collective power within the Republican Party. We all know that Ron Paul is not only an anathema to the neoconservative narrative- he challenges their fundamental worldview! Tying the two together (to the detriment of both) is sort of a stroke of genius, considering that this supposedly sinister "alliance" is based on a thread of truth. Dr. Paul and Gov. Romney do get along personally, and their campaigns coordinate when it is mutually beneficial. I think the so-called alliance ends there. Romney is a known quantity, an establishment favorite and a moderate New England former Governor. Ron Paul has always sought to be the last anti-Romney standing, so it is to his benefit to use his campaign's resources to expose the others (rather than Romney). The trouble comes in when our people buy into this propaganda- as if Dr. Paul is in the process of selling us out (and the articles are out there!). This line of thinking can accomplish more than the neocons could ever dream (while it is clearly their ultimate goal): to destroy the Congressman's legacy into the future. Alex Jones has been about the only one out there discussing these rumors, and in my opinion, doing a good job putting them to rest. He has also been out front exposing outright voter fraud and the many irregularities in the electoral process. This audio file contains a couple hours worth of discussion into these controversial issues. Make of the what you will.

Arizona GOP Debate - Ron Paul Coverage Recap

February 24th, 2012

The Republican debate last Wednesday night was perhaps the final one of the 2012 primary cycle. Although all the standard questions have been asked in triplicate by this point, at least these forums are an opportunity to remind voters that Ron Paul is indeed still in this contest (the media would just assume black him out completely). And we all know that many Paulistas have found their champion only due to his participation in these very forums! Congressman Paul did us all proud in Mesa, calling out the newest Republican flavor of the month and distinguishing himself as the only game-changer in the group. This file includes remarks from Dr. Paul after the debate, his speech to supporters, and some other reaction from friendly media. Due to the large amount of relevant coverage available in the past week, I am splitting up the audio somewhat, based on topics. I will then put the remaining audio into the weekly update.

Ron Paul is the Choice of the Troops! - Sounds from the Rally, March, and Afterparty

February 22nd, 2012

On Monday the 20th of February, Adam Kokesh, Nathan Cox,  and the grassroots Veterans for Ron Paul group held a rally and march in support of Ron Paul's campaign for President. At least 500 veterans and active duty soldiers traveled to the nation's capitol to visibly express their support for Dr. Paul- the Presidential candidate who far and away receives the most campaign donations from the active duty military (over 70%, including Pres. Obama). Many veterans and prominent liberty activists took to the stage at the rally to vocally support the Congressman, and express their displeasure at the bipartisan consensus that is the foreign policy of the United State government. An impressive sight, the battalion sized element then marched to the White House, stood in silence to honor all those who have died since Obama has taken office, and then turned "about face"- signifying their repudiation of the Nobel-laureate's militaristic policies. I have compiled a collection of audio from the day's events for your listening enjoyment, including: speeches, interviews, and music from the afterparty (posted in chronological order). Some of the audio at the rally is less than perfect (they seemed to struggle with feedback/distortion in the PA system at times). Of course, the national media largely ignored the gathering (save a few web articles and the like)- wouldn't want to upset the corporate narrative and the left-right paradigm.

WTF Is Going on in Maine? Audio Update

February 17th, 2012

In case you haven't been following the controversy that exists in the aftermath of the Maine caucuses, I thought I would post some audio including the coverage of the irregularities that exist. The caucus- which was called for Romney last Saturday- reeks of some of the same shenanigans that came out after the contest in Iowa last month. As you may know, the caucusing in Washington County (which just happens to be home for Ron Paul's strongest support in the state) was cancelled due to a few inches of snow. Yet the election was called for Romney, despite the fact that less than 200 votes separated the two according to the Maine GOP's initial figures. Moreover, the published tallies for Waldo County inferred that noone had voted there at all! I have seen conflicting reports as to whether or not the Paul campaign continues to contest the results (Dr. Paul never conceded defeat last weekend)- but at this point, I would contest anything and everything! "Conservative" media has been silent on this issue- Fox News has essentially dropped all coverage of the Paul campaign. Ironically, it is MSNBC's Rachel Maddow who has covered the situation like a blanket on her evening program, along with WXIX-TV's Ben Swann. Due to the loud demands of Ron Paul supporters, Maine will apparently be recounting caucus-goer's votes (though Maine Republican Chairman Charlie Webster assures us that the outcome will be the same). We shall see! Links to the videos are included in the file description, included audio can be heard in the order listed below:

Ron Paul 2012: Campaign Related Talk Radio

We have a bit of a lull in the action here, as we await the results of the Maine caucus (which Ron Paul is wining thus far) and prepare for the Arizona and Michigan primary contests on February 28th. Dr. Paul has apparently taken a short break from the campaign trail, so I have a couple of hours of Ron Paul related talk radio for your listening enjoyment.

Audio Rewind: News & Coverage of the Nevada Caucus

February 6th, 2012

The Nevada caucus took place across the Silver State on Saturday, yet the relatively small number of statewide votes have still not been counted in entirely at the time of this posting! Can anyone say, incompetence (Iowa all over again)? Something tells me the Nevada caucus will be in the news for awhile. One thing is for certain- Mitt Romney came away with yet another convincing victory in the race for the GOP nomination. At this time, Dr. Ron Paul trails Newt Gingrich by about 700 votes for second place  (with 90% of the state reporting). Current caucus tallies can be accessed through Google. This audio montage is a compilation of caucus coverage, including news from the campaign trail, sounds from caucus night, and interviews with Congressman Paul (and surrogates). Controversy abound and CNN executed yet another hit job against Ron Paul supporters. Links to the videos are included in the file description, included audio can be heard in the order listed below:

Ron Paul 2012: Campaign Related Talk Radio

January 25th, 2012

For your listening enjoyment- another three hours of Ron Paul related discussion. As the campaign transitions from South Carolina to Florida and beyond, we have approached a lull in the campaign that I will fill with some longer, radio-style conversations about our cause and our candidate. A large percentage of this audio file relates to Dr. Paul's foreign policy of non-intervention, how his position is perceived by the public, and how a more rational defense policy differentiates the Congressman from his rivals. Other news and campaign developments are also discussed. The clips are generally heard in chronological order, and were originally broadcast in the past month. These talk radio files are always among the most downloaded of the entire podcast- so enjoy!

Audio Rewind: News & Coverage of the South Carolina Primary

January 24th, 2012

This audio file recaps the last few days of media coverage- leading up to, on the day of, and in the aftermath of the South Carolina primary. I like to include surrogates speaking to the media on behalf of the Paul campaign, various clips illustrating the kind of grassroots efforts taking place on the ground, news packages by local affiliates and national networks, and even some previously unposted audio with Dr. Paul, himself. The media rarely covers Dr. Paul even when he does well at the ballot box- they had even less to say on Saturday night. By the numbers, the Congressman received around 77k votes from SC voters- a huge increase over four years ago in a somewhat hostile state. Unfortunately, the disappointing showing was enhanced by the fact that the candidates certain to finish behind him dropped out prior to primary day. But most outlets recognize that our campaign will push forward for the foreseeable future, collecting delegates as we go. I want to say that regardless of the results, the activists and supporters in South Carolina should be very proud of themselves! Waking up Americans, particularly those in the deep south who have their traditional faith and patriotism manipulated by the GOP for political gain, is no simple task.

Ron Paul 2012: Campaign Related Talk Radio

January 12th, 2012

I have another extended talk radio-style audio file for you all that I think you will find interesting. Given that we have entered the primary season and the news cycle moves on so quickly, some of the content may be slightly outdated- despite the fact that it has all been broadcast in the last few weeks. But this audio provides some more in-depth discussion of Ron Paul- the man- and the people that make up our surging movement. Links to original media sources are included in the file description, included audio can be heard in the order listed below:

Audio Rewind: News & Coverage of the New Hampshire Primary

January 11th, 2012

Well, primary day in New Hampshire largely went off as expected, with Dr. Ron Paul placing a strong 2nd place gaining upwards of 24% of the statewide vote. What happened to that 10% ceiling all the "experts" predicted? Congressman Paul remains in position to be the true tea party, grassroots alternative to Mitt Romney- if we can keep it close and steal a few going forward! This audio file contains a media sampling of coverage, in case you had been hiding under a rock somewhere on Tuesday (or had a life to tend to). My two favorite developments from the NH primary? 1.) The Santorum Surge appears to be in the rearview mirror (thank goodness- there's no other proudly anti-liberty candidate in recent memory). 2.) Despite his nastiest efforts, Jon Huntsman finished behind Dr. Paul despite wagering his entire candidacy on the Granite State. This file includes news from the campaign trail, reports from the ground in NH, interviews with Dr. Paul and his surrogates, and media commentary- all within the 48 hours or so before the polls closed. As it should be- our movement is finally starting to receive some recognition for it's unmatched dedication, unique enthusiasm, and defiant nature. Don't mess with us- it's not worth your trouble!

Rick Santorum: The Smiling Authoritarian

January 9th, 2012

The 2012 campaign for the Republican nomination for President has surely been an insane whirlwind tour through the several flavors of the month. Dr. Ron Paul aside, the average GOP voter has changed their mind over and over again- and in this writer's opinion, for the worse! Michele Bachmann was, at least, a legitimate tea party candidate in opposition to the expansion of the federal government. Of course, Rick Perry is an archetypal Texas cowboy (always appealing to conservatives) who touted his tea party inspired manifesto, "Fed Up." Herman Cain portrayed himself as an outsider and something of a populist (of which he was actually neither). Those three could at least claim to be representative of the tea party, but the last couple months of the campaign have been troubling  from the perspective of a limited government conservative. Newt Gingrich is no advocate of free markets and limited government; but at least he showed well in the debates and could impress voters with his professor-esque insights. What can we say about Rick Sanitorium? He's an odd little man, who essentially played point-man for all the Bush administration's big government initiatives. More troubling, a Sanctimonium-led America would be both socially oppressive at home and unapologetically militant abroad. Luckily, I think it's safe to say that Santorum is truly the most unelectable candidate- he would probably lose a general election against President Obama by a 70% to 30% margin.  But the man must be exposed, nonetheless!
