What is Ron Paul doing?
Rick Santorum has already dropped out of the Republican presidential race. Newt Gingrich is expected to do so this week, Wednesday at the latest. Mitt Romney is virtually guaranteed the nomination.
But Ron Paul supporters continue to fight on at Republican caucuses and conventions. Last weekend, they won at the Louisiana caucuses even though Paul managed just 6 percent of the vote in the state’s primary earlier this year. The Paulites carried the 1st, 2nd, 5th, and 6th congressional districts. According to one count, 74 percent of the delegates elected to the state convention Saturday were Paul supporters.
“As a result,” reports the Times Picayune of New Orleans, “under party rules, Paul is guaranteed at least 17 of the 46 delegates to the convention at which Romney will almost certainly be nominated for president.” By contrast, the primary awarded Santorum ten pledged delegates and Romney five.
That same day, Ron Paul supporters were elected chairman and vice chairman of the Alaska Republican Party. Paul finished third in the popular vote in Alaska’s caucuses, but his supporters joined with former Tea Party Senate candidate Joe Miller to dominate the state convention. According to Politico, “It’s more evidence of the political maturation of the Paul forces, who are beginning to seize the levers of powers from within state parties.”
The Ron Paul Republicans’ mission is twofold. First, they want to secure enough delegates to the Republican National Convention to place Paul’s name in nomination.
Barack Obama’s mother ‘was secretly in contact with his estranged father’

Barack Obama’s mother was secretly in contact with his estranged father during his entire childhood without the future president’s knowledge, a new book claims.
Ann Dunham gave Barack Obama Sr regular updates about his life during the 1960s and 70s and even sent him school reports.
It was not until the 1980s that Mr Obama became aware of the contact between the two – but he still did not forgive his father for being an absent dad.
The claims are made in a new book by Mr Obama’s half sister Auma in which she reveals that their father was routinely ‘exploited’ by the Obama family in Kenya.
She said he was a ‘prisoner of his principles’ who would do endless favours for others even if they had a history of failing to reciprocate.
Barack Obama, 50, was born in Hawaii in 1961 but soon after his parents split and his father went to Harvard University then returned to Kenya where he remarried.
Father and son met just one more time, at Christmas in 1971, leaving the future president with a void in his life he spoke moving about in his memoir ‘Dreams of My Father’.
Now his half sister Auma – one of Barack Obama Sr’s daughter from his second marriage – has revealed that Mr Obama’s mother was keeping secrets from him for his childhood and adolescence.
Much like the greatest Cold-Warrior that ever graced the face of the Earth -Ronald Reagan- broadcasting icon Paul Harvey knew what was in-store for us if we allowed decadence to set-in.
Martial Law Executive Order by Obama

Obama Has Signed ANOTHER Martial Law Executive Order — Click below to DEMAND Congress STOP Obama’s “Emergency Powers” Executive Order: https://secure.conservativedonations.com/rm_martial-law/?a=2565
ALERT: Obama’s preparations to institute MARTIAL LAW IN AMERICA are coming together quickly — he has now signed ANOTHER “Executive Order”, this time to take control of America’s domestic natural gas production!
It’s getting WORSE — we MUST STOP HIM NOW!
SEND A MESSAGE TO EVERY SINGLE U.S. CONGRESSMAN, DEMANDING THEY STOP BARACK OBAMA’S “EMERGENCY POWERS” MARTIAL LAW EXECUTIVE ORDER: SEND YOUR MESSAGE NOW!
As Congressional representatives overwhelming approved the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act in February of this year, few Americans were paying attention.
When President Obama signed the Act into law, he did so in secret, without any of the fanfare that came with his signing of universal health care two years prior – and for good reason. This is one of those laws the government doesn’t want you to know exists until it’s too late to do anything about it.
What would you say if you learned that a member of the highest court in the land has spent the last 30 years openly advocating for the destruction of the US Constitution and even went so far as to accept $20 million from Shariah Law proponents to accomplish her goal?
That Supreme Court Justice is Elena Kagan.
The year after Ronald Reagan entered the Oval Office with the goal of restoring America to greatness; Elena Kagan penned a telling and disturbing senior thesis titled “To the Final Conflict: Socialism in New York City, 1900-1933.” In that body of work, Kagan lamented that “a coherent socialist movement is nowhere to be found in the United States”; and that,” no “radical party” had yet “attained the status of a major political force.” Kagan went on to sound a rally cry for “those who, more than half a century after socialism’s decline, still wish to change America.”
Apparently, this was no mere college dalliance, as the Elena Kagan has spent the rest of her career working to remove the underpinnings of freedom and destroy the American Constitution from within. And Kagan’s grand plan has worked very well indeed.
After graduate school Kagan went on to become Dean of Harvard Law, where she removed Constitutional Law classes from the curriculum, and replaced those necessary and time honored classes with required studies of international law. And in what appears to be a game of using a mutual enemy’s resources to accomplish ones’ true objective, Kagan also accepted a $20 million grant from Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal – a noted Shariah Law proponent – to implement an “Islamic Studies” program.
Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” raved about a speech President Obama made to American troops during his surprise visit to Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan.
“I imagine being a soldier over there [and] this is what you want to hear,” Matthews said, as if he was wearing military fatigues.
Matthews also likened the leadership of President Obama to that of Henry V of England.
“It was right out of Henry V actually, a touch of Barry, in this case, in the night for those soldiers risking their lives over there,” Matthews said.
“Well that’s great stuff. I was so proud of the President there, I must say. This has nothing to do with partisanship; this is the Commander-in-Chief meeting with the troops,” Chris Matthews gushed on his program today.
Matthews continued to express his admiration for Obama, who was in Afghanistan to mark the first anniversary of Osama bin Laden’s death.
A FORD BICYCLE THE TWO-WHEELED CONCEPT FOR THE FUTURE OF TRANSPORTATION (Obama-maobile is unveiled)
Myfordmag.com ^ | Carrie Jones
Posted on Tuesday, May 01, 2012 8:31:06 PM by Brilliant
With electric vehicle technology becoming more desirable to the average consumer, Ford applied its innovative design sense to the two-wheel market and created the E-Bike concept vehicle.
Unveiled at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, this sleek, cross-gender bike is powered not with gas, but by a lithium-ion battery. The drive system is subtly embedded in the 5.5-pound aluminium-and-carbon construction frame for a cool, minimalist look—perfect for the energy (and image) conscious city commuter.
Why now? More than 30 million motorized bicycles were sold globally in 2010, with an increasing market share in Europe. Because the E-Bike can also be ridden with pure muscle, the fear of running out of power far from a charging station is eliminated, giving E-Bikes the potential to become the preferred choice for short- and medium-distance destinations, replacing traditional bikes or larger cars.
American cities have never experienced modern total war, leaving Americans to imagine the impacts of catastrophic warfare on their urban centers. This article examines post-1945depictions of the death of U.S. cities in films, short stories, and novels from the “thriller,” “future war,” and science fiction genres since 1945.
Cities are conspicuous by their absence from fictions of future war and its impacts, often disappearing offstage to allow the plot to follow survivors in small-town and rural settings. This pattern spans depictions of the immediate days after atomic bombing (or a surrogate disaster such as a stray meteor or plague) and stories set decades or centuries after the Big Blowup.
Cities are often depicted as sources of danger even in their death throes and after, supporting the conclusion that these narratives express the strong fear of cities and the preference for middle landscapes that have long marked American culture.

I was invited via an email from Cabela’s to trick out my AR. It took a minute to figure that they were talking about an automatic rifle. The picture looked like the M-16 I carried 40 years ago in military service, but more upscale. I don’t own an AR. I don’t even have a gun. It is usually nice shirts and camping equipment I get from them. So it was a little surprising.
I like Cabela’s. When we lived in Michigan I’d take my kids to see their beautiful four-story displays of bears, coyotes, foxes in hinterland settings. It seemed a representative part of glorious northern Michigan known as the UP. I tend to like guns as well. But the AR is not a hunting gun. It is a war weapon and a lot of people are buying them. In fact, guns today are said to be the only bright spot on the economy and Cabela’s stock is booming.
But why are so many Americans buying guns? It has been like this for several years now. Since Obama was elected president. The question should be asked in the same way Thomas Mann once asked, “Why are they disinfecting the streets of Venice?” Is something dark and unknown rising within us? Is it already here?
The blowback continues from President Obama’s overreaching attempt to turn the killing of Osama bin Laden into a weapon with which directly to attack Mitt Romney.
First, some Navy SEALS, the outfit whose members risked their lives to kill bin Laden, took exception. Then, a key operative at the CIA, who helped secure intelligence that led us to bin Laden using practices opposed by Obama, balked.
“A recently disclosed memorandum from then-CIA Director Leon Panetta shows that the president’s celebrated derring-do in authorizing the operation included a responsibility-escape clause: “The timing, operational decision making and control are in Admiral McRaven’s hands. The approval is provided on the risk profile presented to the President.
Washington has pressured the Philippines, whose government it owns, into conducting joint military exercises in the South China Sea. Washington’s excuse is that China has territorial disputes with the Philippines, Indonesia, and other countries concerning island and sea rights in the South China Sea.
Washington asserts that China’s territorial disputes with the like of Indonesia and the Philippines are a matter of United States’ national interests.
Washington has not made it clear what Washington’s stake is in the disputes. The reason Washington cannot identify why China’s disputes with the Philippines and Indonesia are threats to the United States is that there is no reason. Nevertheless, the undefined “threat” has become the reason Washington needs more naval bases in the Philippines and South Korea.
What this is all about is provoking a long-term cold war conflict with China that will keep
profits and power flowing into Washington’s military-security complex. Large profits flow to armaments companies. A portion of the profits reflow into campaign contributions to “the people’s representatives” in DC and to presidential candidates who openly sell out their country to private interests……….
Media Blames Alex Jones For Obama Nazi Posters

AOL corporate asset the Huffington Post has posted an article insinuating that Alex Jones is linked to a flyer distributed in Michigan that features a Nazi swastika.
Media Blames Alex Jones For Obama Nazi Posters 10922839 large“The flyer pairs an image of a swastika alongside a movie cover for the film, ‘The Obama Deception,’ a ‘documentary’ by renowned right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones,” the site reports.
According to Mlive.com, the flyer was placed on parking meters in downtown Grand Rapids.
“Readers of the card are referred to a website to sign a petition that espouses tea party ideas and urges people to support Ron Paul. The views there come from a woman who claims to live in Grand Rapids, but listings for a person by the same name were disconnected or answered by people who denied knowledge of the flyer and the petition,” writes Nate Reens.
“Using direct comparisons of Obama to Nazis or other notorious political villains has been somewhat common since the president’s election,” AOL-Huffington Post explains without mentioning the fact that president Bush was often referred to in the same way by people who share HuffPo’s socialist political stance.

For years my colleagues and I have been asking Ron Paul about a slew of petrochemical disasters in and around his Houston-area congressional district. Several of them occurred during federal terror exercises, and resulted in record profits for Big Oil. He has stonewalled not only us, but also his constituents on this life-and-death subject.
At last there may be cause for hope, though. During a Thursday Austin speech, Paul said he was concerned that a “false flag” attack might be used to plunge the United States into a war with Iran. Hopefully this means that he is now prepared to answer questions about what we believe to have been false flag events in his own back yard.
Some have suggested that Paul’s truther remarks are an attempt to appease false flag students who think that he is simply another establishment apparatchik, albeit one who poses as an anti-establishment rebel. After all, five years before this latest headline, Ron Paul Warns of False Flag in Town Hall .Speech, there was Presidential Candidate Fears “Gulf Of Tonkin” To Provoke Iran War. Between the two “candid candidate” moments, though, there has been half a decade of dodging, while wishful supporters supposed that their man was somehow different from the rest.
With celebrities and recognizable political figures weeping with joy on Election Night 2008, it was easy for the gullible to swallow Barack Obama’s widely accepted promise for ‘Hope and Change’.
Video images from real time at Grant Park on November 4, 2008, still available today, show a weeping Rev. Jesse Jackson and tearful Oprah Winfrey.
Ron Paul dealt a quiet, but embarrassing, blow to Republican rival Mitt Romney this weekend, scoring an impressive delegate victory on the presumptive nominee’s home turf.
The Boston Globe reports today that Paul supporters filled more than half of the delegate slots at this weekend’s Massachusetts Republican district caucuses, edging out at least 16 Romney delegates for a spot at the Republican National Convention.
Paul’s wins aren’t likely to effect on Romney’s all-but-certain coronation as the Republican nominee. Romney won the Massachusetts Republican primary with 72% of the vote, so 38 of the state’s 41 RNC delegates are legally bound to vote for their former governor on the first ballot at the convention.

In the question and answer portion of the lecture, We Are Change founder Luke Rudkowski confronted Sunstein concerning his avocation of a “provocateur” style program to silence what have become the government’s most vociferous and influential critics.With tongue firmly in cheek, Rudkowski introduced himself as “Bill de Berg from Brooklyn college”, before directly asking Sunstein to explain his comments.“I know you wrote many articles, but I think the most telling one about you is the 2008 one called ‘Conspiracy Theories’. Where you openly advocated government agents infiltrating activist groups for 9/11 truth, and also to stifle dissent online.” Rudkowski stated.

Bret explains “natural born citizen” requirements for president and vice president
Fox News ^ | 5/1/2012 | Bret Baier
Posted on Tuesday, May 01, 2012 12:32:22 PM by GregNH
Here’s the deal…
Many legal analysts and scholars agree with this take– and until the Supreme Court weighs in.. this is how the law is interpreted:
The Constitution requires that the president be a “natural born citizen,” but does not define the term. That job is left to federal law, in 8 U.S. Code, Section 1401. All the law requires is that the mother be an American citizen who has lived in the U.S. for five years or more, at least two of those years after the age of 14. If the mother fits those criteria, the child is a U.S. citizen at birth, regardless of the father’s nationality.
Occupy protesters have amped up May Day labor demonstrations across the country with a wide range of partnering organizations and individuals. Former 60s anti-war activist William “Bill” Ayers is among those protesting in Chicago on Tuesday.
He said he planned to participate in the May Day demonstration at Union Park in Chicago and the subsequent march.
“We’ll march right past the scene of the Haymarket massacre,” Ayers said of the protest in favor of an eight-hour work day in 1886 that was bombed. ”There used to be a big statute in tribute to police power but it was taken down.
First lady Michelle Obama has figuratively evicted her 74-year-old mother from the White House in an apparent effort to boost her appeal to middle-class voters.
The eviction notice came April 30 when the first lady told fellow Democrats at a fundraiser that she shared their values. “My family, we lived in a little bitty apartment on the South Side of Chicago over my aunt’s house [and] my mom still lives in that house to this day.”
However, the first lady’s mother, Marian Robinson, has lived in the White House since March 2009, when Essence Magazine announced her move from Chicago to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
“She will stay as long as her son-in-law and daughter want her to stay there,” Angela Burt-Murray, the editor of Essence Magazine, said in an April 2009 “Today” show interview.
White House officials have largely kept Robinson out of sight, and she makes relatively few public appearances. One recent exception came on April 9, when she publicly read ”The Rainbow Fish” at the 2012 White House Easter Egg Roll.
People complain. Obama’s always complaining about what Bush left him. “The mess was worse than anybody knew,” whatever it is. I don’t know how to deal with people who complain. I don’t know what to say to ‘em. I don’t know whether to be sympathetic, ’cause that doesn’t accomplish anything. I don’t know what to do when people start whining and moaning and complaining about stuff because it never gets anything done.
Obama Lands in Afghanistan In Surprise Visit

Posted on Tuesday, May 01, 2012 3:11:45 PM by tcrlaf
President Barack Obama made a previously unannounced visit to Afghanistan on Tuesday, the first anniversary of the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden in neighboring Pakistan.
The president will make a televised address from Afghanistan at 7:30 p.m. ET.
The trip was Obama’s third to Afghanistan since taking office. He visited in March 2010 and returned in December of the same year. He also visited Afghanistan in 2008 as a presidential candidate.
Tuesday’s visit came at a particularly delicate time in relations between the United States and Afghanistan. The countries have been negotiating a strategic agreement that would outline the basis for U.S.-Afghan cooperation after most U.S. and allied troops withdraw in 2014.

BARACK OBAMA RUSSIAN PLANT? NEW EVIDENCE
A research group tried to contact this man of the “The first time I heard of Barack” story back in January to no avail. His purported name was Tom Fife. Here’s the link:
It’s next to impossible to prove the following - as nearly everything else about Obama's life before October 1992 - but it is believed by some researchers that there MAY be some correlation with this Tom Fife story and the nationally-published story BELOW from Feb 13, 1992, which was a plea for cash from the Left elite to get communist and socialist “students” out of Moscow.
Three months ago conservatives were jubilant over reports Congressman Darrell Issa would offer a Contempt of Congress complaint against Eric Holder.
After all, the Attorney General had openly refused to honor House Oversight Committee subpoenas for an estimated 80,000 documents vital to the Committee’s investigation of the role played by members of the Obama Regime in Operation Fast and Furious.
Warrantless checkpoints in the city of Liberty, Kentucky that were used by authorities to interrogate drivers who refused to display a sticker in their vehicle have been ruled unconstitutional by the Kentucky Supreme Court.
At a time when America desperately needs to come together, we are becoming more divided than ever. The mainstream media and most of our politicians love to pit us against one another in dozens of different ways, and right now class warfare has become one of their favorite tools for getting us to hate one another. If you are struggling in this economy, you are being told that “the wealthy” are the cause of your problems.
If you have money, you are being told that the poor hate you and want to tax you into oblivion. Class warfare has already become a dominant theme in the 2012 race for the White House, and there will certainly be endless speeches given along these lines by politicians from both major political parties all the way up to election day. Class warfare will be used by both sides as a way to divide America and get votes.
And the frightening thing is that it is clearly working. There is more hatred between the poor and the wealthy in America today than at any other time that I can remember. But hating people because of how much money they have or don’t have is not going to solve anything. Instead, it is just going to cause more problems.The other day, Yale economics professor Robert Shiller told CNBC that the globe is already in a state of “late Great Depression“. The United States is heading into unprecedented economic and financial problems and we desperately need to pull together as a country and solve these problems.

The libertarian, who is experiencing surge of support in delegates, made the statement after going head-to-head with Nobel Prize-winning economist — and ideological opposite — Paul Krugman in a debate about the U.S. economy.
“Depends on what his platform is going to be,” he said in an interview with Bloomberg’s “Street Smart.” “If every single thing in the platform I disagree with, it’s gonna be tough [to endorse him (Romney)] . If it’s 100 percent opposite of everything I’ve said on civil liberties, on war issues, on spending cuts, on monetary policy, what could I do?”
He continued: “We have millions of people now supporting our campaign, and millions that haven’t been heard of because they are independents and Democrats that aren’t happy with Obama…
The Ultimate Appeal to Persuade Fellow Blacks to Stop Voting Democrat
American Thinker ^ | 05/01/2012 | Lloyd MarcusPosted on Tuesday, May 01, 2012 9:31:14 AM by SeekAndFind
Candidly, I have struggled with this for years — how best to explain why I am a black conservative and why fellow black Americans should join me.I served on a board with an extremely bright black mom. Both of her kids, a boy and a girl, are brilliant; her son received a full scholarship to Yale.This black mom is well-read on “whiny” black liberal authors and philosophers.
I am talking about the majority of black authors you see featured on mainstream TV. They sound extremely intellectual, explaining how white America is still systematically abusing blacks and why more heavily funded government programs are the answer. I feel like screaming at my TV, “Knock it off! Bottom line is you hate white people and are seeking more entitlement government freebies!” Such needy victim rhetoric has nothing to do with, nor does it achieve, real black empowerment. Frankly, these people turn my stomach.
As I said, the black mom is extremely well-read on victimhood-peddling black authors and has never heard of brilliant black conservatives Professor Walter Williams and Dr. Thomas Sowell.Professor Walter E. Williams is an American economist and academic.
He is the John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics at George Mason University, as well as a syndicated columnist.Dr. Thomas Sowell is an American economist, social theorist, political philosopher, and author of 30 books. Dr. Sowell is currently a Rose and Milton Friedman Senior Fellow on Public Policy at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University.
Both these guys are about “real” black empowerment, teaching personal responsibility, education, hard work, and morality — not the standard blacks-are-eternal-victims and white-America-owes-us garbage spouted by black pundits on TV. Thus, you never see Prof. Williams or Dr. Sowell on mainstream TV.
President Barack Obama is shredding the U.S. Constitution faster than any of the 42 men who preceded him in office, according to Fox News judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano, author of the brand new "It is Dangerous to be Right when the Government is Wrong."
It is so bad he should be impeached over the murder of American terror suspect Anwar al-Awlaki – and if Congress won’t take that action, he should be indicted once he is out of office.

Many years ago, a phrase was coined by the leaders of the Soviet Union to describe those in the West who naively promoted the cause of Russian Communism when in reality they were held in contempt and were being cynically used by the Soviet hierarchy.
The term “useful idiot” more than ever applies to a vast swath of citizens in the United States who have been cynically used by the hardcore left for a cause they are unwilling to understand.
Anybody who thinks Republican nominee Ron Paul has lost his core support obviously wasn’t driving down Cullen St. around 6:30 p.m. Friday.
“I’m sure glad the revolution is alive and well in Houston,” Ron Paul said to thousands of supporters as cheers echoed off the walls of Hofheinz Pavilion.
Hours before Paul’s speech, a line of supporters sporting their favorite Ron Paul T-shirts and buttons snaked around the block, eagerly waiting to hear the man of the hour make his case for liberty. People of all sorts and ages were in attendance, and the mood was lively to say the least.
As you may have expected, throughout his speech Paul carried the same tune he’s been singing since the start, and it seems like nothing is ever going to change that.
His consistency is truly impressive, and as far as I’m concerned, Paul demands and deserves respect, no matter what ideology you have.
It’s a shame that he doesn’t get the proper amount of attention, because while some of his ideas may be out there, a lot of what he says makes sense.
Who do you think won the debate? Did stimulus (Paul Krugman’s position), debt liquidation (Ron Paul’s perspective), or something else end the Great Depression?

Chicago, Illinois is expected to swell with armed security forces during next month’s NATO Summit, but will that be enough to keep the Windy City under control? Officials are now readying a massive exit strategy to vacate the entire metropolis.
A memo has been sent out of the Milwaukee, Wisconsin Red Cross office that confirms that officials are already taking measures to handle an emergency of epic proportions during the upcoming NATO Summit, scheduled for the week of May 20 in the city of Chicago, 70 miles to the south. In addition to armed security forces expected to begin patrolling Chicago as early as this week, authorities are now making plans to usher residents up to Milwaukee in case the planned NATO protests cause an emergency that warrants an immediate evacuation of the city.
