Ron Paul Warns That the Feds May Bring “Waco” To the Bundy Ranch

As soon as Cliven Bundy squared off against the big, bad Bureau of Land Management — instantly becoming a folk hero to idiots who romanticize the notion of armed insurrection against the federal government, seeing it, ironically, as an act of patriotism — you knew it was only a matter of time before either Fox News or RT consulted the legislative Patient Zero of this whole movement. And so it is that Ron Paul’s recent appearance on Neil Cavuto has begun making the rounds, with Paul issuing dire warnings of another showdown between Bundy and the feds that’s surely on the horizon.

  • Paul is poking at this powder-keg, basically cautioning the pro-Bundy army not to let its guard down because the jackbooted thugs of the U.S. government will soon return and this time they'll be bringing Waco and Ruby Ridge with them.
  • Paul goes on to say that he hopes any potential standoff won't end with violence, but -- oh, come on.

Why Photo Social Security Cards Are a Stupid, Dangerous Idea

soc sec

The issue of voting rights is beginning to gain some suction with the mainstream media, a trend that should be encouraged. One idea that should not be encouraged is former President Bill Clinton’s suggestion that Social Security cards should have a photo option, in order to defang voter I.D. laws that address a nonexistent problem, and which have disproportionate impact on minorities.  White House Press Secretary Jay Carney was asked about the concept at Friday’s daily briefing, and his answer demonstrates why Clinton’s idea isn’t just wrong, it is dangerous.

In what surely won’t be the last revelation in the internet vapor trail of Kansas shooting suspect Frazier Glenn Miller, Jr., radio host David Pakman has unearthed a lengthy 2010 interview with the man who would go on to be arrested for deadly shootings at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City and Village Shalom in Overland Park, Kansas. A lost-cause U.S. Senate candidate in Missouri at the time, Miller spent most of the interview ranting about the Jews, but also praised Ron Paul, and declared President Obama the winner in a game of “Elect, Deport, Waterboard.”

Dove beauty

Dove parent company Unilever has made yet another condescending ‘viral video’ based on the idea that grown women are as gullible and as obsessed with their looks as 7th graders. Women would find concrete actions on issues like climate change, chemicals in beauty products, and corporate responsibility far more inspiring than emotionally manipulative montages.
