McCain is the projected GOP winner in New Hampshire and the Democrat contest is too close to call with the race tightening.

Ron Paul responds to some of the explosive charges that Flap had here.

“The quotations in The New Republic article are not mine and do not represent what I believe or have ever believed. I have never uttered such words and denounce such small-minded thoughts.

“In fact, I have always agreed with Martin Luther King, Jr. that we should only be concerned with the content of a person’s character, not the color of their skin. As I stated on the floor of the U.S. House on April 20, 1999: ‘I rise in great respect for the courage and high ideals of Rosa Parks who stood steadfastly for the rights of individuals against unjust laws and oppressive governmental policies.’

“This story is old news and has been rehashed for over a decade. It’s once again being resurrected for obvious political reasons on the day of the New Hampshire primary.

“When I was out of Congress and practicing medicine full-time, a newsletter was published under my name that I did not edit. Several writers contributed to the product. For over a decade, I have publically taken moral responsibility for not paying closer attention to what went out under my name.”

The main credibility problem is the fact that these newsletters were written over a period of many years. Was Paul, in fact, a naive, absentee overseer of these writings under his own name.

Where was Ron Paul? Can anyone be this negligent?

So, excuse me Ron Paul but this does does NOT pass the BS test.

But, the New Republic piece goes beyond a discussion of the many newsletters published under Ron Paul’s name over the many years.

What’s more, Paul’s connections to extremism go beyond the newsletters. He has given extensive interviews to the magazine of the John Birch Society, and has frequently been a guest of Alex Jones, a radio host and perhaps the most famous conspiracy theorist in America. Jones–whose recent documentary, Endgame: Blueprint for Global Enslavement, details the plans of George Pataki, David Rockefeller, and Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, among others, to exterminate most of humanity and develop themselves into “superhuman” computer hybrids able to “travel throughout the cosmos”–estimates that Paul has appeared on his radio program about 40 times over the past twelve years.

Ron Paul is a bigoted extremist no matter how he tries to repackage himself .

Newly released video shows Iran Revolutionary Guard small boats confronting United States Naval vessels on routine patrol in the Persian Gulf.

Why?

President Bush leaves this week to visit Persian Gulf States and Iran wants hegemony over the region as the BAD BOY on the block.

President Bush on Tuesday denounced the incident as a “provocative act.”

“It is a dangerous situation,” Bush said during a White House news conference. “They should not have done it, pure and simple. … I don’t know what their thinking was, but I’m telling you what my thinking was. I think it was a provocative act.”

One of these days Iran will either intentionally or recklessly provoke an armed response and the proxy war that America and Iran have been waging will become overt.
