Now that Ron Paul’s presidential candidacy is undeniably viable, no stone can go unturned in the effort to paint him as an extremist. Jim Rutenberg and Serge F. Kovalesky for the New York Times:

The American Free Press, which markets books like “The Invention of the Jewish People” and “March of the Titans: A History of the White Race,” is urging its subscribers to help it send hundreds of copies of Ron Paul’s collected speeches to voters in New Hampshire. The book, it promises, will “Help Dr. Ron Paul Win the G.O.P. Nomination in 2012!”

Don Black, director of the white nationalist Web site Stormfront, said in an interview that several dozen of his members were volunteering for Mr. Paul’s presidential campaign, and a site forum titled “Why is Ron Paul such a favorite here?” has no fewer than 24 pages of comments.

Media Roots Radio: Cyberculture, NDAA, OWS, GOP

Via Media Roots:

Abby & Robbie Martin discuss the age of information in the 21st century and philosophize what the ability to instantaneously connect with people worldwide has done to modern society; the subjectivity of “truth” as history becomes re-written with every passing generation; Alan Moore v. Frank Miller on Occupy Wall Street; The passing of the new National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that allows the indefinite detention of American citizens; the GOP race as a parody of itself with the candidates running and how voting for Ron Paul would be a fun social experiment if nothing else than to spoil the GOP primary.

Is Ron Paul Now The Favorite For GOP Presidential Nomination?

Ronpaul1Slowly but surely, the mainstream media is coming to terms with the fact that Ron Paul may very well be Republican voters’ first choice. From the Wall Street Journal:

Ron Paul is the wild card in the Republican presidential deck—and that makes him one of the most important cards of all right now.

It was possible earlier this year to write off the libertarian Texas congressman as an eccentric simply looking, as he did four years ago, for a place on a debate stage to proclaim his gospel of small government and hard money. But now Mr. Paul appears to be the man who could shape the outcome of the Iowa caucuses, which could go a long way toward shaping the overall race.

Nationally, Mr. Paul’s support runs a modest 10% or so in most polls, putting him well behind front-runners Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney. But in Iowa, four polls in the past couple of weeks have put him at an average of 18%—high enough to compete for second place.

The Obama Kill Order On Ron Paul Conspiracy Theory

TinFoilHat002You gotta love the Internet for its ability to spread spurious stories far and wide (don’t forget to call your Congressman to stop SOPA). From Examiner.com:

A crazy conspiracy theory making its way around the web claims that President Obama has issued a “kill order” against GOP Presidential candidate Ron Paul.

The theory was published at the European Union Times, which claims:

The Federal Security Service (“secret letter” sent to Prime Minister Putin by Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda contains a warning that United States President Barack Obama has issued an executive-level “kill order” against US Congressman Ron Paul over fears this charismatic politician, who many believe could capture the Republican Presidential 2012 nomination, is about to expose to all Americans what can only be described as the largest mass theft in human history

The article, which cites the Russian Federal Security Service with no corroborating evidence, has been linked on a number of sites, including The Daily Paul, a website that advocates the Paul candidacy.  Google returned several links mentioning the claim at the Paul site, but one is currently not working…
