candidate Ron Paul announced he will be filing a class action lawsuit against President
Barack Obama, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, Director of National
Security Agency Keith Alexander and FBI Director, James Comey.

Rand Paul stated: “I am filing a lawsuit against President Barack Obama because he

Rand Paul: You did build that. You earned it. You worked hard

Newscast Media TAMPA, Fla—Even though his father did not deliver a live speech, Rand Paul managed to talk about some of the topics his father Ron Paul has often addressed. Surprisingly, in almost all the speeches given by all the speakers, either they or their grandparents only had $10 when they first started out in life. Ten dollars must be the magic number for success, yet on a serious note, the spirit of entrepreneurship is one of the underlying messages of Romney’s campaign.

Rand Paul’s speech in part read:

When I heard the current president say, “You didn’t build that,” I was first insulted,
then I was angered, then I was saddened that anyone in our country, much less the
president of the United States, believes that roads create business success and not
the other way around.

Anyone who so fundamentally misunderstands American greatness is uniquely
unqualified to lead this great nation. The great and abiding lesson of American
history, particularly the Cold War, is that the engine of capitalism — the individual —
is mightier than any collective.

American inventiveness and desire to build developed because we were guaranteed
the right to own our success. For most of our history, no one dared tell Americans:
“You didn’t build that.”

To lead, we must transform the coldness of austerity into the warm, vibrant
embrace of prosperity.

To overcome the current crisis, we must appreciate and applaud American success.
We must step forward, unabashedly and proclaim: You did build that. You earned
that. You worked hard. You studied. You labored. You did build that. And you
deserve America’s undying gratitude. For you, the individual, are the engine of
America’s greatness. Thank you.

Another titan at the convention was Governor Tim Pawlenty

Pawlenty said, “We’ve had four years of Barack Obama in the White House. Ah, the Obama White House, one bad decision follows another. Hard to say exactly just what his worst mistake has been. There’s so many to choose from: The stimulus. His energy policy. Obamacare. Taxes. Joe Biden. I hear Joe’s particularly interested in tonight’s proceedings. He even thought about coming here to Tampa. And he’s taking notes because when Paul Ryan speaks, Joe will finally get to hear what a real vice president sounds like! But you know, President Obama isn’t as bad as people say, he’s actually worse.”

He then continued to say, “I’ve come to realize that Barack Obama is the tattoo president. Like a big tattoo, it seemed cool when you were young. But later on, that decision doesn’t look so good, and you wonder: what was I thinking? But the worst part is you’re still going to have to explain it to your kids.

“Next week, Barack Obama will plead with America to give his failed ideas another chance. He’s asking Americans to give him more time and more money. Well sorry, Mr. President, but you’re out of time, and we’re out of money. Barack Obama’s failed us. But look, it’s understandable. A lot of people fail at their first job.”

In support of Romney Gov. Pawlenty then concluded by saying, “Mitt Romney knows what our problems are, and he has the tools, the experience, the energy and the right polices to fix them. After four years of this president, we need Mitt Romney now, more than ever. I’m proud to be supporting him for president of the United States, and I know you are too. And with any luck, in a few months, Barack Obama will at last get some experience in the private sector. Thank you. God bless you, and God bless the United States of America.”

Rand Paul Hoax Story By GQ Is A Corporate Media Disinformation Campaign

Rand Paul

Newscast Media — GQ magazine has proven itself to be a tool for the corporate media by publishing false allegations and deceiving the public with their Rand Paul hoax story. This kind of unprofessional journalism is the reason why many readers and viewers have a distrust for the media. GQ editors published a story this week claiming that Rand Paul kidnapped a nameless woman and forced her to get high on drugs. It turns out, the whole hit piece was a hoax, and I would be surprised if GQ doesn’t get sued by the Rand Paul camp.

In a feature, GQ has revealed that they were lying to their readers and the whole thing was a giant hoax. Perhaps the magazine has so much contempt for its readers it doesn’t think they are capable of doing their own research. The conservative politician was supposedly a member of a secret society called the NoZe Brotherhood while an undergraduate at Baylor University. The group participated in a variety of pranks on university administration. As a member of the group, the news source claimed, he once kidnapped a female member of the university swim team and forced her to do drugs.

In the GQ article, the nameless woman was quoted: “They told me their god was ‘Aqua Buddha’ and that I needed to bow down and worship him … they blindfolded me and made me bow down to ‘Aqua Buddha’ in the creek. I had to say, ‘I worship you Aqua Buddha, I worship you.”

Now the nameless woman says that while the odd things did occur, she apparently was never kidnapped in the legal sense of the term.

“The whole thing has been blown out of proportion … they didn’t force me, they didn’t make me. They were creating this drama: ‘We’re messing with you,” the woman told the Washington Post.

Paul’s campaign spokesperson Jesse Benton wrote in an email, “It is satisfying to see the libelous and grossly irresponsible charges of kidnapping completely shot down. It remains puzzling to us why the drive-by media continues to focus on an alleged 30 year old teenage prank when our nation faces high unemployment, a thirteen trillion dollar debt and are threatened with a Cap and Trade national energy tax.”

The woman says she doesn’t want her name in print because she’s a clinical psychologist who works with former members of the military, some of whom are Tea Partyers, and fears that complicating Paul’s Senate run could put her in danger, even though she didn’t hesitate to put Paul’s campaign in danger.

Rand Paul denies alleged kidnapping

Rand Paul

Newscast Media –On Tuesday, the Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul of Kentucky on Tuesday denied suggestions he ever kidnapped anyone or forced them to use drugs, and said he hasn’t ruled out a lawsuit against a magazine that ran an article describing events from his college days.

The article in GQ quotes an unnamed woman as saying Paul and a friend once blindfolded her, tied her up, drove her to their house and tried to force her to smoke marijuana. The woman said she and Paul were teammates on the Baylor University swim team at the time, about a quarter-century ago.

In an interview with Fox News, Paul did not directly answer when asked about another detail in the article attributed to the woman — that he and his friend drove her to a creek, where they told her their god was “Aqua Buddha” and she should bow down to him.

“To produce someone anonymously, and then I’m supposed to somehow respond to an anonymous person from 27 years ago, who in the end says — whoever this person was, says — we didn’t do any harm to them and it was all in fun and we didn’t do anything wrong — and yet it’s being characterized as kidnapping, it’s kind of a craziness,” Paul said.
