As a variety of names are now being floated for presidential running mates, Republican candidate Ron Paul says ousted Fox News host Judge Andrew Napolitano might be at the top of his list.
Paul was asked the question about whom he would like on a White House ticket with him at a recent public meeting, and he said, “One time somebody asked me who I’d have to consider and the name Judge Napolitano jumps right out at me.”
But as a recent interview with RT shows, it is not Buchanan’s supposed “white supremacist ideology,” as Color of Change ludicrously charged, that got him fired, but his common sense views on U.S. foreign policy, views that often intersect with the views of another pariah and thorn in the side of the establishment, Ron Paul.
As the drums of war grow stronger, the establishment media, including a supposedly liberal establishment, are purging their ranks of critics like Buchanan.
In a normal, non-Bizarro world, Ron Paul would be an ideal candidate for antiwar Democrats.
Pat didn’t rise to the occasion.
I asked Paul Craig Roberts, a friend of Pat’s, to bring Pat up to speed.
Dear Paul Craig Roberts,
I interviewed Pat Buchanan yesterday and brought up your excellent review of his book. He said you’re a friend of his. So when the conversation turned to 9/11, and we strongly disagreed, I urged him to talk to you about it.
Here is my report on the interview, with the interview itself embedded.
In the unlikely event Pat calls you up to ask about 9/11, I’m sure you’ll acquit yourself well.
Dr. Roberts replied:
Pat can’t take a different stance on 9/11 from the official one and remain a TV pundit. He has all the controversial positions he can bear. I don’t know what he really thinks about 9/11, but there is no point in trying to have him commit suicide.
I see the point.
Paul Craig Roberts
But now Pat’s been fired anyway.
Judge Napolitano too.
Actually, there IS one good thing about Pat Buchanan getting fired from MSNBC: Anybody who’s managed to engineer an ebola virus that only kills MSNBC executives and pundits will no longer have to feel guilty about using it.
”That thing was greased,” as they say in Chicago, referring to a political phenomenon known as “being handled before table.”
Well, bloggers are asking, was it? Word now coming out reveals just two days after Secretary of State Brian Kemp gave Barack Obama the green light to appear on Georgia election ballots,, the Department of Energy awarded Kemp’s state an eye popping $8.3 billion loan guarantee to begin construction on two nuclear plants.
In the face of “a shocking dissent by Nuclear Regulatory Commission CHAIRMAN Director Gregory B. Jazcko,” four other commissioners approved awarding Southern Energy the first nuclear construction licenses since 1978, just one year before the tragedy of the Three Mile Island nuclear disaster put a hold on new U.S. nuclear plant construction.
No new licenses have been approved until this huge Vogtle project got its go ahead to build two new reactors near Augusta.“Jazcko said that the approved designs did not take the lessons of Fukushima into account. I cannot support issuing this license as if Fukushima never happened,” he told other NRC members before their shocking vote to approve this estimated $14 billion project. Friends of the Earth’s climate and energy project Director Damon Moglen is vowing to challenge the validity of the newly approved license in court. “The license may be granted, but these reactors are far from a done deal,” he said.

“But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain — that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case, it is unfit to exist.”~ Lysander Spooner
Today, 17 September 2009, is Constitution Day. There will be paeans, abundant commentary and church-like observances of the glories of this document in making us the most blessed nation on planet earth. This essay suggests a contrarian thesis. The Constitution is an enabling document for big government.
Much like the Wizard of Oz, the man behind the curtain is a fraud. In this case, for all the sanctimonious handwringing and the obsequious idolatry of the parchment, it sealed the fate of our liberties and freedoms and has operated for more than 200 years as a cover for massive expansion of the tools and infrastructure of statist expansion and oppression.
Among the many intellectual travels I have undertaken, this is one of the most heart-breaking I have ventured on. I want to acknowledge the compass-bearers who sent me on this journey: Kenneth W. Royce aka Boston T. Party and his seminal book, The Hologram of Liberty and Kevin Gutzman‘s Politically Incorrect Guide to the Constitution.
For most of the political spectrum in America, the document represents their interpretation of how to make this mortal coil paradise. Even in libertarian circles, it is taken as an article of faith the Constitution is a brilliant mechanism to enlarge liberty and keep government at bay.
That is a lie.The document was drafted in the summer of 1787 behind closed doors in tremendous secrecy because if word leaked out of the actual contents and intent, the revolution that had just concluded would have been set ablaze again.
Paul wants to freeze defense spending but has most support from those in the industrySteve WatsonPrisonplanet.comFebruary 21, 2012
Even Defense Contractors Support Ron Paul For President mn ron paul 0497955732Much has been made of the fact that Ron Paul is the choice of the troops, having received more donations from active duty military personnel than all the other GOP candidates combined, as well as Obama. However, new figures also show that Ron Paul is favored among people who work in the defense sector.
U.S. Federal Election Commission FEC contribution records analyzed by Defense News reveal that Paul received both the most contributions and the largest total amount of cash among Republican candidates from employees of the world’s top 100 defense companies.$177,413.39 was donated to to Paul’s campaign by defense employees in 2011, with a total of 824 individual contributions, meaning an average of $215.31 per person.
That figure is the highest any GOP candidate received from defense workers at companies such as Boeing, Deloitte and Lockheed Martin.Although Mitt Romney’s total isn’t far off Paul’s, the figures show that the former Massachusetts Governor received just 198 contributions.Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum received just $27,310 and $8,185, respectively from defense workers. A d v e r t i s e m e n tDefense news notes that the results are startling because, unlike the other candidates, Ron Paul has campaigned for a stemming defense spending.
At least one congressman and an entire state legislature want to put an end to the federal government’s drive toward embedding spy chips in the driver’s licenses of every American.
US Representative Justin Amash (R-MI) earlier this month wrote Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano urging her to undo her 2009 regulatory mandate that states implant radio frequency identification (RFID) chips in in new “enhanced” licenses.
Following a Georgia judge’s ruling that Barack Obama is eligible to be on the state’s 2012 Democratic Party presidential ballot, the front lines in the continuing eligibility battle are being fought in Arizona.
The decay of society is so much harder to quantify than economic decline is. The government keeps lots of statistics on things like unemployment and inflation, but it really does not keep track of how sick and twisted people are becoming.
Most of us recognize that the character of the American people has changed dramatically over the decades, but unlike the national debt, you can’t easily point to a chart or a graph to show exactly how bad things are getting. In this article, my approach will be to point you to various “signs” of social decay. Signs tell us where we are at now and where we are headed.
Some of the signs that I will use will be statistics while others will simply consist of anecdotal evidence. Yes, anecdotal evidence is not perfect, but when you put enough of it together it starts to paint a pretty clear picture of what is going on out there.
Post-World War IIAfter World War II ended, del Valle was ordered back to Headquarters Marine Corps, where he was named Inspector General, a position which he held until he retired on January 1, 1948. On February 19, 1946 New Mexico Senator Dennis Chavez and del Valle held a meeting with President Harry S. Truman in the White House, in which Chavez recommended del Valle for the position of governor of Puerto Rico.
From 1898 to 1942, the governors of the island were officials appointed by the President of the United States. Local Puerto Rican politicians, such as Luis Muñoz Marín, opposed the naming of del Valle in favor of Jesús T. Piñero; to which Del Valle eventually asked President Truman to withdraw his name among those considered for the position. The first civilian and native Puerto Rican appointed governor of Puerto Rico thus became Piñero in 1942.
If Congress had not approved legislation in 1947 allowing Puerto Ricans to elect their own Governor, del Valle may have been appointed to the governorship. Later yearsAfter retiring from the Marine Corps, del Valle worked as a representative of ITT in the company’s office in Cairo, Egypt.
After some time with the company he was named president of ITT for all South America in Buenos Aires, Argentina, a position that he held until 1951.Believing that the United States was in danger of a communist threat, del Valle tried to convince the Central Intelligence Agency and Department of Defense to form a vigilante minuteman group. He also believed that the CIA should operate behind Russian and Chinese lines.
After his ideas were turned down, he decided to form his own group. In 1953, del Valle met with LtCol John H. Hoffman, LtCol Eugene Cowles Poneroy, Brigadier General Bonner Fellers, and Major General Claire Chennault USAF to formed the “Defenders of the American Constitution” DAC. DAC’s main goal was to purge the United States of any communist influence. The idea behind the group was to organize the citizens in each state as vigilantes against sabotage and other forms of treason, then link them up in some national headquarters.
Del Valle ran for governor of Maryland in 1953 and was defeated in his attempt to be nominated in the Republican primary election. The controversial views shared by some of the members of “DAC” was to blame for the organization’s decline in popularity. On April 12, 1961, del Valle invoked The Protocols of the Elders of Zion during a speech before the United States Daughters of 1812, in an attempt to prove that Communism and Socialism were introduced to Russia by an “Invisible Government” whose intention was to destroy that country.
Del valle also belonged to a group known as the Sons of Liberty, established in 1967 in Annapolis, Maryland and named after the secret patriotic society which directed the actions of the Boston Tea Party on December 13, 1773.Lieutenant General Pedro del Valle, who was married to Katharine Nelson 1890–1983, died on April 28, 1978 in Annapolis, Maryland.
He was buried in the United States Naval Academy Cemetery and Columbarium. After del Valle’s death at age 85, the DAC ceased to exist.

Aaron BurrSunday, February 19, is the 205th anniversary of the arrest of the former hero of the American Revolution and Vice President of the United States, Aaron Burr, on charges of treason.Aaron Burr’s disaffection with the federal government began six years earlier when he was denied the presidency by the House of Representatives.
After equaling Thomas Jefferson in the delegate count in the electoral college each man received 73 electoral votes, the House of Representatives was called upon to fulfill its constitutional role of tie-breaker. After 36 ballots, Thomas Jefferson was elected President by one vote and Aaron Burr became his Vice President. In March 1805, after four troubled years filled with partisan in-fighting and blossoming distrust among Burr and many of the leaders of the day — including the famous collaborators Thomas Jefferson and James Madison — Burr left the Jefferson administration and began preparing for an armed expedition in the West that has come to be known as the Burr Conspiracy.
LaRouche: To Stop World War III, Obama Must be Removed from Office Now ~ “In addition to these impeachable crimes, President Obama is clinically insane, and should be immediately removed…” « ~ BLOGGER.GUNNY.G.1984+. ~ (BLOG & EMAIL)

In addition to these impeachable crimes, President Obama is clinically insane, and should be immediately removed from office under Section IV of the 25th Amendment, which provides for the orderly removal of a President who is physically or mentally unfit to continue to serve.
If a few people in positions of authority step up to the plate and demand action along these lines, this will already weaken Obama and greatly reduce the immediate danger of world war. This is the true measure of patriotism today.
(“French President Sarkozy called Obama, “Insane”. Other world leaders have publicly called him incompetent and other derogatory names”) Obama the Chicken is Being Plucked
Like a dead chicken being plucked, Obama has lost his power and his support. Six months or so ago, French President Sarkozy called Obama, “Insane”. Other world leaders have publicly called him incompetent and other derogatory names.
Since then, major news in America has been slowly, quietly, as if testing the waters, pointing out Obama’s faults and crimes. Little by little they are feeding America, and the World, the truth about the man they fought so hard to cover up for these past four years. Feather by feather, the chicken known as Obama, is being plucked. The most hated psychopath on Earth and his administration are going to be thoroughly plucked, gutted, tossed in an oven, cooked and devoured. And like any dead carcass with no use, Obama and his faithful supporters will be thrown onto a garbage heap until they rot to nothing.
American firearm sales and concealed handgun permit applications are at all-time highs since the 2008 election of President Barack Obama. President Obama’s perceived hostility towards gun owners has been one of the key factors behind the multi-year financial boom the firearms industry continues to enjoy.
Entitled simply “Fake”, the 30 second spot makes the case that it is a myth that Santorum is in any way a fiscal conservative.
The concise ad crams in the facts that Santorum voted to raise the federal debt ceiling five times, voted to double the size of the Department of Education through No Child Left Behind, and voted for Medicare Part D — the biggest entitlement expansion since the ’60s.
The ad also highlights the fact that Santorum voted to send foreign aid to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il and also endorsed sending billions in tax dollars to the corrupt regime in Egypt.
Finally, the ad makes the point that Santorum also voted to give the abortion provider Planned Parenthood millions of dollars in funding.
“Our new ad ‘Fake’ contains just a snippet of evidence against Rick Santorum being a fiscal conservative, but because these examples are so damning it makes the case convincingly,” said Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton.
The parallels between Nazi Germany and the United States of today are going to absolutely shock many of you. Most Americans simply have never learned what life was really like back in Nazi Germany.
Under Adolf Hitler, Germany was a Big Brother totalitarian police state that ruthlessly repressed freedom and individual liberty. Under Adolf Hitler, Germany adopted socialism, dramatically increased government spending and raised taxes to astronomical levels. Under Adolf Hitler, abortion became legal in Germany, the government took over health care and Christianity was pushed out of the public schools and out of public life.

Hope to see you there!
Google has secretly been bypassing your privacy settings in Internet Explorer, Microsoft claimed Monday afternoon.The startling accusation came in a blog post Monday by Dean Hachamovitch, Microsoft’s corporate vice president for Internet Explorer.
On Friday, a Wall Street Journal investigation revealed that the search and advertising giant was bypassing the privacy settings of millions of people using Apple Safari browsers on iPhones and desktop computers.“When the IE team heard that Google had bypassed user privacy settings on Safari, we asked ourselves a simple question: is Google circumventing the privacy preferences of Internet Explorer users too?” Hachamovitch wrote.“We’ve discovered the answer is yes: Google is employing similar methods to get around the default privacy protections in IE and track IE users with cookies.”…
How To Use the Internet in ‘Stealth Mode’ The Key To Staying Private When Big Brother is Watching by Kyle Gonzales
…..Many Internet Service Providers ISPs in the western world are required by law to track nearly everything you do online. While the US government has been trying to hide their electronic wiretapping program as a state secret, the EU made theirs public by passing the Data Retention Directive of 2006. Article 5, under “Categories of data to be retained”, lists the gory details of what is tracked.

(Feb. 21, 2012) — Are Washington, DC politicians absolutely sure that they want to make the US Constitution null and void? If the US Constitution is null and void, then so is the union of states that it created, as that fragile union of sovereign states was very carefully ratified via a very specific and carefully crafted balance of power between the federal government and the states.
Listening to the local news this moring, they were reporting on Virginia’s legislation requiring “rans vaginal ultrasound“. I had not heard that term, so I tried to do a Google search. Firefox flashed this:

SEE READER COMMENTS…
Given the opportunity on “Face the Nation” to amend his remarks, Santorum declined the offer and plunged on:
“I don’t question the president’s faith. I’ve repeatedly said that I believe the president is a Christian. He says he is a Christian. I am talking about his worldview and the way he approaches problems in this country. … They’re different than how most people do in America.”
Obama’s surrogates on the Sunday shows charged Santorum with questioning the president’s faith.
Not exactly. What Santorum is saying is that in the struggle for the soul of America, though Obama may profess to be, and may be, a Christian, he is leading the anti-Christian forces of what Pope Benedict XVI has called “radical secularism.”
In Plano, Texas, last week, Santorum was even more explicit:
“They (the Obamaites) are taking faith and crushing it. Why? Why? When you marginalize faith in America, when you remove the pillar of God-given rights, then what’s left is the French Revolution. … What’s left in France became the guillotine.
“Ladies and gentlemen, we’re a long way from that, but if we … follow the path of President Obama and his overt hostility to faith in America, then we are headed down that road.”
Santorum is saying that where Thomas Jefferson attributed our human equality and our right to life and liberty to a Creator, secularism sees no authority higher than the state. But what the state gives, the state can take away.
The media think Santorum is singing “Onward Christian Soldiers” while heading off into the fever swamps. But Santorum is wagering his political future on his assessment of where we are in 2012.
He sees America dividing ever more deeply between those who hold to traditional Christian views on marriage, life and morality, and those who have abandoned such beliefs. He believes that the former remain America’s silent majority, and he is offering himself as their champion against a militant secularism that has lately angered more than just the right.
Last week, Santorum declared that radical environmentalism is also rooted in this same anti-Biblical view of mankind’s purpose here on earth.
“I think that a lot of radical environmentalists have it backwards. This idea that man is here to serve the earth as opposed to husband its resources and be good stewards of the earth. Man is here to use the resources and use them wisely, but man is not here to serve the earth.”
This is straight out of Genesis:
“Then God said, ‘Let us make human beings in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
Santorum seems to want to steer his primary and general election campaign into a conflict that goes back deep into American history and has surfaced time and again.
