Video: Desperate Establishment’s Latest Rand Paul Hoax Backfires – Alex Jones Tv

The latest media hoax targeting Kentucky primary winner Rand Paul has exploded in the establishment’s face after a claim that Paul “kidnapped” a woman during a college prank was revealed to be completely mischaracterized, showing once again how desperate the system is to discredit Paul and prevent him from leading a populist revolt against the status quo.

The corporate media has now launched no less than three hyped or outright manufactured “controversies” in an effort to tear down Paul’s popularity in the less than three months since he won the Kentucky primary. The system is scared stiff of what Paul represents because he is a true constitutionalist with a real chance of winning in October after having brushed aside establishment Republican candidate Trey Grayson back in May.

Desperate Establishment’s Latest Rand Paul Hoax Backfires

(PaulWatson&AlexJones) – The latest media hoax targeting Kentucky primary winner Rand Paul has exploded in the establishment’s face after a claim that Paul “kidnapped” a woman during a college prank was revealed to be completely mischaracterized, showing once again how desperate the system is to discredit Paul and prevent him from leading a populist revolt against the status quo.

The corporate media has now launched no less than three hyped or outright manufactured “controversies” in an effort to tear down Paul’s popularity in the less than three months since he won the Kentucky primary. The system is scared stiff of what Paul represents because he is a true constitutionalist with a real chance of winning in October after having brushed aside establishment Republican candidate Trey Grayson back in May.

On the very night of his primary success, the media kicked into high gear and instantly tried to characterize Paul as a hypocrite and a racist elitist simply because he held his victory celebration at a country club. Continue reading

Video: Racist Government Imposed Segregation Laws, Not 2-Year-Old Rand Paul

(PaulWatson) – In an interview with Alan Colmes, Ron Paul points out that it was the government who enforced segregation laws, not his son Rand Paul, who is being branded a racist by the attack dog media for simply re-affirming the fact that even unpopular aspects of the First Amendment must be protected for it to stand for anything.

As we have exhaustively documented, the corporate media was intent on manufacturing a contrived race baiting scandal around Rand Paul even before the Civil Rights Act argument cropped up. In the immediate aftermath of his crushing defeat of establishment neo-con Trey Grayson, the media attempted to characterize the Kentucky primary winner as a racist elitist simply because he held his victory celebration at a country club.

(Newsweek) – Neo-Cons Attack Rand Paul After Primary Victory

On a rough night for conservatives, Rand Paul’s victory in the Kentucky Senate primary was a rare bright spot. The opthalmologist and son of Rep. Ron Paul is one of the highest profile wins yet for the Tea Party, a constituency he trumpeted last night: ”I have a message from the Tea Party. A message that is loud and clear and does not mince words: We have come to take our government back.” Fox News’s Sean Hannity, chatting with Sarah Palin, termed it a “Randslide.” Of course, Paul’s triumph is bad news for the GOP establishment. Mainstream pick Trey Grayson, who got walloped, was hand-chosen and backed by major establishment figures—from Mitch McConnell to Dick Cheney.

But outside the Senate minority leader’s circle, Paul’s selection is cause for celebration. Right? Read More Here

(MSNBC) – Video: Rachel Maddow Attempts to Portray Rand Paul as a Racist

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow is a shill for big government. She uses Paul’s opposition to the federal government dictating to the states — specifically, civil rights legislation handed down by the feds — to insinuate that he is a racist.

This is the same argument constantly used by Chris Matthews and others to portray states’ rights advocates as racists. It is part of the effort by the corporate media and government to label all opposition to Obama as the hateful ranting of white supremacists. Continue reading

(ZeroHedge) – Here Comes The Bailout Bailout: European Cental Banks Gobbling Up Portuguese, Irish And Greek Government Bonds

And so the European private banks win the overnight battle with the Central Banks again: after shorting the EURUSD all the way to almost 1.25, they have forced the European Central Banks to buy ever more of their worthless Government bond holdings. Reuters reports that overnight CBs have been aggressive buyers of Greek, Portuguese and Irish Sovereign (if there is such a laughable concept as sovereign any more) bonds, which in turn has forced a quick short covering spree in the EURUSD and the EURJPY, which in turn has forced futures to go from 10 handles down to up 4. In other words, Central Banks now are fighting tooth and nail to prevent the market from going down ever again. Read More Here

Comex gold futures Tuesday afternoon hit a new all-time record high of $1,232.50 an ounce. The previous record high of $1,227.50, basis nearby futures, was set in December of 2009.
