Donald Trump is the Intellectual Heir of Ron Paul
I think you can tell a tremendous amount about a person, intellectually and psychologically speaking, by the extent to which a person is willing to believe in conspiracy theories. I think most people fall somewhere on the spectrum of reasonable credulity, in which conspiracies that are supported by a great amount of evidence are believed or disbelieved based mainly on ideological predispositions. On the other | Read More »

Newt Gingrich unwittingly highlights another way to stop Donald Trump
There are headlines going around setting up that Newt Gingrich attacked Mitt Romney for his speech against Donald Trump, but his interview on Fox and Friends is raising an important point about the dynamics of a convention which has no first-ballot majority.

Ron Paul: That Ted Cruz Is Owned By Goldman Sachs, But Sanders Has A Libertarian Streak

Marco Rubio is right. Rand Paul seeks to weaken a nation.
We all love to look at the Clinton Foundation’s donors. Even Rand Paul says that foreign donations are thinly-veiled bribes to the Clintons. So why don’t we look at the donations going to Ron Paul, which he is hiding from public scrutiny? Given that the elder Paul has been defending Russia, don’t we have to question just why this is, and just how much money is | Read More »
Trump and Walker down in new CNN Poll. Fiorina and Rubio up.
If the new ORC International poll for CNN is to be believed, Carly Fiorina’s thumping of Donald Trump was noticed. Trump is down 8 points from the previous CNN poll, losing a quarter of his prior 32% support, while Fiorina gained 12 points from a barely-registering 3%. Have we, at long last, reached Peak Trump™?

I expect Donald Trump to do better in Caucuses than in Primaries
Remember Ron Paul? He never had a chance to win the GOP nomination. He was so far outside of the party mainstream, on so many issues, that he was never going to go anywhere. He did however have a strong third place showing in the Iowa caucuses in 2012. The key to understanding how that could be, is to understand the layers of support every | Read More »
Ron Paul on Paris terror attack: B****es had it coming
I try to ignore Ron Paul and his spawn as much as humanly possible but sometimes the doddering old fraud just goes too far. As a recap, Muslim terrorists, or at least everyone in the world thinks they are Muslim terrorists except the Obama administration, stormed the offices of a Parisian magazine that happens to poke fun at Islam and its Mohammed. People were killed. | Read More »
The Worst Possible GOP Candidate for 2016: Lindsay Graham
It took two insignificant events for to become the worst possible GOP candidate for 2016. First, John Huntsman had to become independent in the proud tradition of Lincoln Chafee, and then !RONPAUL! had to hang-up whatever it is that certified nut-jobs hang up when they retire. With the entrenched professional nobodies out of the way, there was a hole in the GOP roster. The position | Read More »
Contra David Frum – Principled Libertarianism Is the Highest Level on the Philosophical Ladder

Rand Paul is a Poltroon
Via Matt Cover, we now have yet another instance of Rand Paul changing his positions on a key issue and then pretending he never held the previous position in the first place. The latest instance comes in the context of aid to foreign countries (specifically, Israel is under consideration here but to be fair to Rand Paul his point was about foreign aid to all | Read More »
Ron Paul, Rand Paul, and the probable Russian shooting of MH17
With Rand Paul almost certainly running for President, it’s very important we evaluate just what his views are on the issues of the day, and what influences shape what his gut instincts are, which will shape his reactions to the unforeseen issues that crop up during any Presidency.
Given the younger Paul’s constant support of his father’s candidacies, and his currying of favor from his father’s supporters, this means we must continue to look at what Ron Paul says, and look to Rand Paul to support or deny those remarks.

Ron Paul: Moral Cretin
On Friday, former Representative Ron Paul was a guest on Newsmax TV. The subject of the shootdown of Malaysia Air flight MH-17 came up. This exchange ensued with host John Bachman, via Mediaite: Speaking with Newsmax TV’s John Bachman earlier today, Paul said “Putin is a little bit smarter than that. I don’t think he would ever come close to participating in an act like this.” “At | Read More »
The Fraudulent Crimean Referendum Exposed
Back a couple of months ago when Russian President Vladimir Putin, the new BFF of both the hate America movement and the American isolationist movement, gouged a large chunk of real estate from a neighboring nation, people like Ron Paul nearly messed themselves in their eagerness to assure us that Putin had international law on his side and self determination was a great thing.
