A beacon of sanity in a world of darkness

Daily Paul - Tue, 2015-04-07 15:34 +0000

I'm one of the silent majority on the Ark that comes here for love,comfort,information and open-minded discussion. It's funny because I sorta started out as an "info warrior" and the DP became my hip-waders for navigating my way through the info war.

Anyway I just wanted to thank the DP community and Michael for his trust in us and the liberty movement. Thanks for sharing your personal stories of triumph, victory, achievements, pain, loss. Most of all thanks for being a beacon of sanity in a world gone mad! If the universe truly bends toward justice we must be at the apex!

Texas Straight Talk 4/6/15: The IRS and Congress Both Hold Our Liberty in Contempt

The IRS and Congress Both Hold Our Liberty in Contempt
by Ron Paul

This week the Justice Department announced it would not charge former Internal Revenue Service (IRS) official Lois Lerner with contempt of Congress. Some members of Congress requested that Lerner be charged with contempt after she refused to testify at a congressional hearing investigating her role in denying or delaying the applications for tax-exempt status of “tea party” and pro-limited government organizations.

Cynics might suggest it is not surprising that a former government official would avoid prosecution for refusing to tell Congress about how federal employees abused their power to help the incumbent administration. These cynics have a point, but the problem goes beyond mere partisanship. Government officials are rarely prosecuted for even the most blatant violations of our liberties. In contrast, federal prosecutors routinely pursue criminal charges against whistleblowers. For example, the only American prosecuted and imprisoned in relation to the government's use of torture was whistleblower John Kiriakou!

Hologram replaces Edward Snowden statue in Brooklyn park

Daily Paul - Tue, 2015-04-07 15:31 +0000

Hours after police removed an illicit bust of Edward Snowden from its perch in a Brooklyn park on Monday, artists replaced it with a hologram.

The group of artists — who collectively call themselves "The Illuminator" and are not related to the trio behind the original sculpture — used laptops and projection equipment to cast an image of Snowden in a haze of smoke at the spot where the sculpture once stood.

They say the action was a message of defiance aimed at the authorities who "censored" the piece, according to a tumblr post.

Daily Paul - Tue, 2015-04-07 14:56 +0000

Links to this article at Politico:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — After watching his father try for the presidency and fail three separate times, Rand Paul is poised Tuesday to embark on his own White House bid, a campaign designed to tap into Ron Paul’s legacy without being suffocated by it.

The first-term Kentucky senator and ophthalmologist, elected in the conservative wave of 2010, will appear at the Galt House Hotel Tuesday where, advisers said, Rand Paul would present himself as a change agent who would reform the federal government.

Jesse Benton will not be part of Rand Paul campaign team, will head up super PAC instead

Daily Paul - Tue, 2015-04-07 02:57 +0000

Rand Paul Taps Jesse Benton to Run His Super PAC
The longtime family strategist will head up America's Liberty PAC, a Paul-sanctioned outside group.

BY SHANE GOLDMACHER
April 6, 2015

LOUISVILLE, Kentucky—Rand Paul's presidential campaign is prepared for launch—and so is his super PAC.

Roughly two weeks ago, the Kentucky senator and his top operatives began the process of severing ties with longtime Paul strategist Jesse Benton, who will helm the independent unlimited-money group established to boost Paul's candidacy and, more than likely, tear down his presidential rivals.

Benton's role with the super PAC will be general consultant, according to a person familiar with the arrangement. He will be charged with both crafting strategy and helping to reach the goal of banking between $20 million and $30 million to support Paul.

So Much To Say and Not Enough Words To Say It: My Farewell to the Daily Paul

Daily Paul - Tue, 2015-04-07 02:14 +0000

Where Do I Begin?
I'm so glad and so sad.
So rot and so Distraught.
I knew not what I got til I fought the world of the evil it brought.
A sea of patriots abound
Still don't know what they have found.
A wise old man tired and torn
with a striving son that every libertarian seems to scorn.
Liberty is in trouble and you fuckers don't even care.
Holding on to your self moral preservation as if it were something you wouldn't dare
question your own self worth in the land cheapskates...

Me hates Good Byes... So Hello!

Or, suppose that'd be more like: Good bYallo! ,oD

Hi y'all:

Pardon the absence (for those who maybe curious); been in more foul rhetorical bent as of late (been tossing lyrical at gEVEELe+ under a Chris Carter's creation nomer), didn't want to mar the lovey dovey last days of DP with a bit more 'blue' rhetoric.

Lindsey Graham tried to jump on the 'libertarian' bandwagon-but Amash was having none of it:

Daily Paul - Tue, 2015-04-07 00:17 +0000

Even Lindsey Graham, one of the most hawkish members in Congress, wants to get on the “libertarianish” bandwagon.
Graham told The Gazette that he agrees with a lot of libertarian ideas: “Libertarians want smaller government. Count me in. Libertarians want oversight of government programs and making sure that your freedoms are not easily compromised. Count me in. Ted Cruz wants to fight Obamacare. Count me in.”
“Our view of limited government and free enterprise is pretty commonly shared,” he said. “What we wind up doing is having tactical differences.”

Goodbye Daily Paul and Michael Nystrom

Daily Paul - Mon, 2015-04-06 20:12 +0000

7 years 2 months 19 days. 21% of my life. It has been one crazy ride. It's hard to explain how much this site and community shaped me as an individual over the last decade but I do know that I would not be the same without it.

Thank you Michael, I have the original I Support Ron Paul poster still hanging on my office wall it's #265 out of 500 and I was lucky enough to have it signed by Ron Paul in San Diego, back then I don't know if there was 100 people there. It is a constant reminder for me about what is possible.

How Unknownuser Got Here

Daily Paul - Mon, 2015-04-06 18:48 +0000

Thought I'd jump in and share my story too. Mines not a long and exciting story. It's not dramatic. Kind of boring actually.

Basically my husband, son, and I bought a lake resort way up north to get away from the hustle. Turns out I am a city girl after all. I got really bored during the slow months of the resort business and started an addiction to googling stuff. Saw a picture of a blimp one day that said "Google Ron Paul". So I did...

The rest is history.

Will Rand Paul inherit the energy of Ron Paul’s campaigns?
By Philip Bump April 6 at 2:06 PM
Last week, Michael Nystrom wrote a post at DailyPaul.com, a site he founded, that indicates its end is near. The site was for years a focal point of conversation and energy orbiting the stated and implied political philosophy of Ron Paul. Its animated logo unveils the site's mantra: P (eace) - AU (gold) - L (love).

Are We Gonna Have a Countdown Party?

Daily Paul - Mon, 2015-04-06 17:37 +0000

How about a little countdown party, like the dropping of the ball on New Year's Eve, except to countdown the shutting down of the Daily Paul?

I am not sure if Michael has chosen an exact time, but it would be interesting and somewhat symbolic if it happened right as Rand Paul starts his press conference tomorrow.

And let me just take this opportunity to express my gratitude for each and every one of you. Thank you all :)
