Ron Paul Tribute Video Played at the GOP Convention

Well they say a lot of nice things, and support his ideas, when he is retiring and no longer going to be there to fight them day in an day out.  Some of them are legitimate, some of them are just trying to appeal to his passionate supporters for their own reelection bids.  Where were these people a year ago when he was on the campaign trail?  Seems like he could’ve gotten a few more votes if some big names came out to support him.  The silence was deafening.

Still though, it’s a well done video and I figured I’d post it FWIW.

Final Delegate Vote Count at Convention

Through all 56 states and territories:

Mitt Romney – 2061
Ron Paul – 190
Abstain – 23
Rick Santorum – 9
Buddy Roemer – 1
Jon Huntsman – 1
Michelle Bachmann – 1


The following states cast at least 1 vote for Ron Paul:

Alaska (9)
Arizona (3)
Georgia (3)
Hawaii (3)
Iowa (22)
Louisiana (12)
Maine (10)
Michigan (4)
Minnesota (33)
Missouri (4)
Nevada (17)
New Hampshire (3)
North Carolina (7)
North Dakota (5)
Oklahoma (6)
Oregon (4)
Pennsylvania (5)
Rhode Island (4)
South Carolina (1)
Texas (20)
Vermont (4)
Virginia (3)
Virgin Islands (1)
Washington (5)
Wisconsin (1)
Wyoming (1)

I would like to point out several things. If you have followed the campaign you know of the corruption in Maine, Nevada, Iowa and a slew of other important states, these dirty tricks not only went on during the caucus but also with the delegate selection. I have no doubt in my mind that Ron Paul’s delegate totals would be close to double if the GOP hadn’t interfered.

Second I would like to show how much of an impact the “front runners” ultimately had at the convention. There were weeks at a time when, Herman Cain, Michelle Bachmann, pRick Santorum and Rick Perry were in the limelight and everyone on every corner of the MSM was telling us that this would be the next POTUS. Well guess what? All of these pricks together got 10 delegates. Let me repeat that, 10. Now how many did that person who was slandered the entire campaign, the person who had no chance in hell why not just quit, get? 190.

That means all of these assholes got 5.2% of what Ron Paul did, stated differently he got 1900% more delegates than all of the other “front runners” combined.  Let the media report on that……..

Ron Paul Movement Not Ready To Pass Torch To Rand (No Kidding)


TAMPA, Fla.—Rand Paul risks alienating his father’s base as he tries to expand his own.

The Kentucky senator, who speaks at the Republican convention Wednesday night, has a younger face and a softer edge, but his name does not guarantee the loyalty of Ron Paul’s most passionate supporters.

With buzz around a potential run for president in 2016, Ron Paul’s son plans to make the case to delegates that it is better for the movement to work with the GOP establishment rather than from the rebellious fringe. But convincing a libertarian movement that puts a premium on purity to play in the big tent of a major party is a big ask.

Among some supporters of the elder Paul, there are doubts about whether Rand Paul is up to the task of carrying his father’s torch.

Many Ron Paul supporters are still upset that Rand endorsed Romney in June during a Fox News appearance while his father was still technically a candidate. In fact, Ron Paul is being denied a speaking slot this week because he refuses to endorse or release his delegates to Romney. During the primaries, Rand always said he planned to support whoever won the Republican nomination whenever asked if his father would consider a third-party candidacy.

That doesn’t go over well with some of Ron Paul’s most fervent supporters.

“I was kind of on thin ice with Rand, and then he went and endorsed Romney. And I said, ‘Dude, that’s it! We’re done now,’” said Nick Tanzillo, 27, who flew here from Boston for a Paul rally on Sunday. “He didn’t need to do it when he did. It really cracked the liberty movement. You’ve got the hardcore Ron supporters saying, ‘What are you doing to us?’”

“It looks like he’s pandering to the party,” added 30-year-old Marshall Soell from San Antonio.”

Ron Paul, 77, is retiring after 24 years in the House. Rand Paul, 49, did something his father never had in 2010 when he won statewide office after upsetting a GOP establishment favorite in the Republican primary. He’s begun raising his national profile, delivered the official Republican Saturday radio address this weekend, has become increasingly close with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and now plans to deliver a primetime address at the national convention. Ron Paul is leaving Tampa Tuesday night, so he will not be at the convention site to watch his son speak.

In separate interviews with POLITICO, both father and son played down their divergent tactics at the convention here.

Asked whether his son can carry his torch, the elder Paul said: “Time will tell. Nobody has a torch that they give to somebody else. I don’t have a torch. Everybody has to own their own way. He’ll do well.”

Rand Paul pushed back at suggestions that he may be alienating some of his father’s supporters. And he argued that the GOP platform is a “very libertarian, conservative document.”

“One out of 1,000 will be unhappy,” Rand Paul said of his father’s supporters. “But the vast majority come up to me and are complimentary and are very supportive.”

Ron Paul Left Tampa Yesterday, Harassed By TSA


Ron, Carol, and one of their granddaughters left the GOP snake pit yesterday afternoon, but the State was not yet through with them. At the little airport in Clearwater, 8 TSA agents descended on them and ordered them not to board their private plane. First, the pilots, the airplane, and the passengers would have to be screened in great detail, because Romney might be nearby. After a long examination of the pilots and their credentials, the agents said they had to check the plane for explosives. One of the pilots noted that the plane, full of aviation fuel, was already a bomb. Then Carol Paul, who has a pacemaker, refused to be screened, and an aide started taking video of the whole rotten process. At that point, the TSA backed down and let them through, to Texas and freedom.

Mises, Rothbard, Woods and Keiser

I started seeing grumblings last week about some blow up between Max “Bernanke is a Protestant” Keiser, and Tom Woods.  The whole thing was apparently over Max not bowing down to Mises and Rothbard which got the number one cheerleader Tom Woods quite riled up.  I do not know the ins and outs of what was said, and for the basis of this post it is somewhat irrelevant. 

After this article appeared on ZH I decided to briefly write my thoughts as well because I had wanted to get this out there for some time.

I always found it funny that the two people Lew Rockwell and Tom Woods revere the most in the space of Austrian Economics is Murray Rothbard and L v Mises (both jews of course).  I have been interested in this for some time, because arguably the Mises Institute run by Lew Rockwell is the biggest Austrian economics think tank on the planet.

I like Lew and Tom, I have listened to every one of Lew’s podcasts (many of which are stellar) and routinely post videos from both of them here on the blog.  So I am not an enemy of either of these men, yet I do find it curious that they are such cheerleaders for Mises  and Rothbard, to be honest it’s alittle scary.  I understand that Lew and Tom both knew Rothbard and that Lew knew Mises so it could just be that they happen to be in charge of keeping up their legacy, but to me it goes deeper than that.  By focusing on these two economists many other great economists take a back seat.  As I see it the L v Mises Institute exists to insure that Mises and Rothbard are remembered as the two heavy hitters and thus make two jews the patriarchs of the entirety of Austrian Economics thought.

To the new reader, or to the reader who doesn’t understand the realm of jewish influence this observation may seem boring, but the study of jews controlling both sides of a debate or movement I find very fascinating.   Today you have economists such as Ben Bernanke, Alan Greenspan and Paul Kruggman who are also jews yet follow Keynesian principles, whereas the flip side (apparently) is Mises and Rothbard.  So you have the most prominent proponents on either side and they are all jewish?

“So what”, you may be saying, “they are all jewish, well not all jews have to agree on every subject” while this is true there is no more a cohesive group of people on planet earth than the jews and that is a fact, sure they will sell their own grandmother for a nickel (no honor among thieves) but when it comes down to promoting their own be it hollywood, the music industry or any other field they do it every single day.

I really have no direct conclusion with this post, just the fact that I find it quite odd that Lew and Tom spend a disproportionate amount of time building up the legacy of Rothbard and Mises where without Lew and Tom most people today wouldn’t even know their names.  If their contribution to economics was so great they wouldn’t need cheerleaders constantly reminding people of their importance, and the fact that they do it with such regularity and fervor just sends up a red flag with me. 

Ultimately I find it suspicious and unfortunate that nearly every major player in economics period now is jewish, and the people today who could be great on the Austrian side seem content to just give all the credit to jews of the past.

Jewish Actress Calls For Christians To Be Thrown Into The Sea


“The jew punches you, and then he cries out in pain” – Polish Proverb

I recall a lot of jews claiming the President of Iran said he wanted to drown the jews by pushing them into the sea. Even though that is an utter fabrication, it is repeated often as a chant as the neo cons bang the war drum. The reality is though straight from the horses mouth that the jew wants to drown all the Christians in the sea.

The first example is apparently grounds for nuclear war, the second is just a tiny blip on the radar screen of non mainstream media sources. Hypocritical?

Here is the quote from Ellen Barkins twitter.

“C’mon #Isaac! Wash every pro-life, anti-education, anti-woman, xenophobic, gay-bashing, racist SOB right into the ocean! #RNC”

As I recall a man was taken away in his underwear and thrown into a mental hospital for saying far tamer things about the government. Again there is no hypocrisy here, move along.
