Some recent events have made me think about the past, and the journey that I - and we- in the liberty movement have had- as the 2016 presidential election races forward. Since I'm feeling a bit nostalgic and sentimental today, I would like to share a very powerful video I made after the 2007 Ron Paul Presidential campaign ended. It's called The Ron Paul Bumper Sticker Is Still On MY Car. It includes a lot of photos videos I took during that time, at various Ron Paul rallies, and events, at the Tonight Show with Jay Leno in Burbank, etc. (set along with music,) from the grassroots campaign... and I think it really conveys the hopeful spirit of the people.
With people very cynical nowadays, I think we need to be reminded of this spirit now and again.
I hadn't watched this video in years, and had pretty much forgotten about it, but I heard "Beautiful Loser" on the radio today and remembered this vid, so I got a little nostalgic, and dug it up.
As the video caption states, "Remember the good times.. a tribute to Dr. Paul and his supporters who love liberty."
I remember very well how a lot of people were not happy with the outcome of the 2007 campaign and the way it ended. I also know a lot of people didn't support the 2012 campaign with the same spirit and hopefulness.
I was not involved in the 2012 campaign at all. But that's not the point here. The spirit and hope of the people at that time, during the grassroots 2007 campaign, to me, was something much more meaningful and revealing than just about the man Ron Paul, strengths and flaws.
If you know what I mean. It was about eternal the hope of how things could be.
And that is why that time will always be special.
The Fight for Liberty is eternal.
I don't really believe in politics or politicians anymore. Ron Paul was the only politician I ever donated money to. "Remember, Remember the 5th of November," the Ron Paul Moneybomb in 2007, which was record-setting for the most donations in a single day ever to any candidate. That was very special at the time, and was amazing for even me to donate, since I am a notorious cheapskate. ;-)
The only other politician I ever sort-of donated to besides Ron Paul was Rep. Tom Tancredo, when I paid $50 bucks to see him speak at a fundraiser in 2003. Tancredo later turned out to be a Zionist loon who wanted to "bomb Mecca," as he put it. The only other politician I ever really supported was Tom McClintock, when he was running for Governor of California against Arnold Schwarzenegger. Tom Talked an absolutely great game and said all the things we wanted to hear- he was as good as Ron Paul-- or so i thought. I was very much against Arnold Schwarzenegger and knew he was an evil gun-grabbing collectivist, and it made me sick to see all those GOPers adoring him like they did. It was INCREDIBLE. I have so much footage from that campaign I could make a 10 hour documentary on it. It was painful to watch. When Arnold won, President George W. Bush came to California to meet with new Governor Arnold. I went down there and
was on the 11 O'clock KNBC TV News protesting both, because they were fake conservatives who would grow government and increase tyranny. Go to minute 5:00 of this video to see that TV news clip or watch it at the left. Of course, Arnold's disastrous tenure as governor proved me right. (does banning .50 caliber ring a bell?) In the very next Governor's election, Tom McClintock endorsed Arnold for governor and said everyone else should too! WOW!! I even have a Tom McClintock archive section on my website documenting all of this- this joke and a fraud of a politician who I had met several times and tirelessly promoted him, (read Tom's classic speech FREEDOM AND FIREARMS in the California State Senate on 6/09/2001 and you will get the idea of why I had supported him). I worked real hard to get him elected. Tom later became a U.S. Congressman, voted for the Patriot Act, NDAA, voted for money to Israel, sanctions on Iran, etc. etc. and turned out to be a Zionist loon, just like Tancredo!
And honestly, that's when I thought, WOW, man. I was done. I have been done with politics and politicians for many years now.
That is not our hope.
God's moral laws, the spirit of goodness and liberty, and tireless resistance to evil is our hope.
Another thing that led me to write this column today is that the DailyPaul.com is reportedly closing down- although the owner Michael Nystrom has threatened to pull the plug and fretted about closing the site for years with a lot of melodrama, it appears he's gonna kill his site. And while that's not really a big deal to me since I only go there occasionally, it's a disappointment to a lot of really good people, it reminded me of 'our' - the Ron Paul supporters in general - our journey and how far we've come, and how we've evolved over the years in the course of our journey. All the good people involved in the fight for liberty.
I've had my problems with the DailyPaul site- their censors actually banned me from the site in 2009, because I posted this- so - full disclosure here, haha- I later rejoined with another username.
As I explain on my new website RandPaulZionist.com, I supported Ron Paul for president in 2008 and my website, LibertyFight.com, was launched in 2007 as my local way to help promote Ron Paul's presidential campaign when me, along with my dad and my best-buddy sidekick Samoyed dog Maxine, (pictured there in front of the Ron paul sign without a leash I might add) put up a giant Ron Paul sign on a friend's building on a busy street in my town. Here is my website as it originally appeared. At the time in 2007, like many others, I was very excited at the prospect that Ron Paul could be president. I met him several times at various rallies and at the Tonight Show. My dad and I went to the very first 'Ron Paul Meet-Up' in Pasadena, Calif. You see, I was already familiar with Ron Paul because my dad had been a follower of Dr. Paul since I was a kid, and had received Dr. Paul's newsletters and materials. [The New York Times reported on that very first Ron Paul Meet-up and insinuated that the participants were a group of conspiracy theorists who hated Jews. In actually no one even mentioned Jews, although the leader of that meeting kept droning on promoting the 'John Birch Society,' and we left early. It was kind of a joke. But at any rate, the 'Ron Paul Meet-ups' were off to some sort of a start, and grew wildly from there.]
Here I am with Ron Paul in Burbank outside the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. People lined up a day in advance just for the chance to get in. Hundreds of people waiting all night sleeping on the sidewalk just for the chance to meet Ron Paul and show their support for him. Tom Cruise and Shakira were the other guests on the show that night- it was a great show and an experience I will never forget. Ernest Hancock of FreedomsPhoenix.com gave every single person a free bright yellow neon 'Ron Paul ReEVOLution' t-shirt for the show. What a great guy Ernie is. He's the one who created that design, you know. I was a guest on Ernie's show in 2012, the MP3 is here (2nd hour.)
Somewhere I have a photo of that episode with Jay Leno on TV, and Ernie and I and a bunch of other Ron Paul supporters in the audience. I'll have to dig it up.
And actually what had happened was, the NBC producers herded hundreds of us into the studio and then abruptly announced that no one wearing a neon yellow (Ron Paul) T-shirt was allowed to be on camera, because "the coloring looked bad on TV." It was sad and chaotic, with hundreds of people scrambling for sweaters and jackets to try and cover up with. Many people had to move seats out of camera view, or leave altogether.
That's all for now, thanks for listening and I hope you enjoy the video, and cheers to liberty. May God bless you all, and here's to a peaceful and prosperous 2015.
Note: I should add, that at the time I made this vid, several people told me it was a tearjerker.

LAPD To Hold Two Public Meetings on Use Of Officer On-Body Cameras 1/9/15
With hostility, suspicion and distrust between police and the public becoming more pervasive in recent years, LibertyFight.com applauds this move towards transparency on behalf of LAPD and the Los Angeles City government. I encourage everyone in the Los Angeles area to attend these meetings.
Introducing RandPaulZionist.com: Because We Really Need To Do Better In 2016 12/23/14
This site will be a clearing house for Rand Paul Zionist information- keeping a close watch on Randy as he ramps up to his attempted 2016 presidential bid. As someone who heartily supported Ron Paul for president, it's offensive to me that Rand would use his father's support & money base to get elected to the U.S. Senate and then betray his constituents to the degree that he has. Starting with endorsing Romney, slathering at the 'wailing wall,' etc. etc. You may not know that Rand has actually admitted in official Senate speeches that he "meets with Israeli groups daily," a story I broke last year. There are many similar stories in our archives.
I realize that Rand Paul's rhetoric on domestic issues and supposed 'limited government' are better than all the other legislators in Congress. But I believe there is a very serious reason that we as Americans need to reject people like Rand outright, and we should admonish and shame them publicly. The bottom line is that you can promise to 'cut government' all you want, but if you support the maniacal neocon-Zionist foreign policy of giving trillions to Israel and defending Israel at all costs, you're not a friend to Americans or an advocate of peace. Not to mention my good friend Greg from Houston, who made international news in 2010 when he confronted George H.W. Bush in a pizza place and called him a piece of ^%$# Zionist murderer, is helping me with the site. Stay tuned! ;-)
Rand Paul to Ferguson: "Come on guys, you got to wait to have your kids." (Government Meddling in Procreation: Is Rand Paul a Crypto-Eugencist?) 12/1/14
"Birth control is not our business. I cannot imagine anything more emphatically a subject that is not a proper political or governmental activity ... or responsibility," President Eisenhower said in December 1959. Oh how things have changed, with even supposed 'limited government' politicians promoting 'family planning.'
Don't let that cop search your car! (The Supreme Court held that the Fourth Amendment prohibits a police officer from further searching a vehicle which was stopped for a minor traffic offense once the officer has written a citation for the offense.)
"The more one does what is good, the freer one becomes. There is no true freedom except in the service of what is good and just. the choice to disobey and do evil is an abuse of freedom and leads to "the slavery of sin." [CCC 1733]
"Freedom is exercised in relationships between human beings. Every human person, created in the image of God, has the natural right to be recognized as a free and responsible being. All owe to each other this duty of respect. the right to the exercise of freedom, especially in moral and religious matters, is an inalienable requirement of the dignity of the human person. This right must be recognized and protected by civil authority within the limits of the common good and public order." [Catechism of the Catholic Church 1738.].
A 'Mission' lecture series on The Four Last Things: Death, Judgement, Heaven, and Hell: - By Fr. Isaac Mary Relyea
This is an absolute must-hear from my favorite website, AudioSancto.org. I highly recommend this five part series of free audio lectures by this traditional Catholic priest on the most important things which we all will face. (Of course we will experience only three of the four last things, since a person can not go to both Heaven and hell.)
Did you know that the United States government willingly helped slaughter tens of thousands of Catholics in North America only 80 years ago? It was called the Cristero War, a Masonic led slaughter of Catholic freedom fighters. Below is our work documenting the matter. I also highly recommend the excellent film For Greater Glory which was released in July 2012.
Part 1: When the U.S. government supplied ammo & military planes to kill thousands of Catholics 9/18/13
This is an expose on the U.S. government's role in the slaughter of tens of thousands of Roman Catholics in Mexico fighting for their freedom to simply practice their faith. For naive well-intentioned Catholics who believe that we should always trust the government, these documented facts should be a real wake up call. As Archbishop of Baltimore Michael Joseph Curley stated at the time, "Our government has armed Calles's killers!"
Part 2: Admitted Fact: U.S. Govt supplied 10 Million rounds of ammo, 10,000 Rifles, planes & tanks to slaughter thousands of Catholics 10/17/13
LibertyFight.com has further documented many original sources which confirm for the record that the U.S. Government supplied directly from United States arsenals ten million rounds of ammunition, ten thousand Enfield rifles, machine guns, & military aircraft to slaughter innocent Catholics. We found Testimony taken at the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Foreign Relations heard in 1920 and the original New York Times newspaper articles reporting the military supplies ordered by president Herbert Hoover.
U.S. Senate Testimony On the Cristero War April 29, 1920 On Thursday, April 29, 1920, The United States Senate Subcommittee on Foreign Relations heard Testimony taken at Washington D.C. Among the many people who testified were Fr. Francis P. Joyce, a Captain and Chaplain in the United States Army, Monsignor Francis C. Kelley, President of the Catholic Church Extension Society of the United States of America, and Catholic nun Mother Elias De Sta Sacto, of the Discalced Carmelite Order. Note that this testimony was taken on April 29, 1920, which proves that the countless abuses, murders and sacrileges enacted upon Catholics by the Mexican and United States Governments began much earlier than 1926 and extended much later than 1929, as is the period commonly referred to when discussing the 'Cristero War.'
"...My friends, have we not learned that modern wars settle no disputes? By this time are we not dissillusioned? Do we not realize that wars are the enemy of democracy? Do we not appreciate that poor men- the laborers and farmers- pay for all wars- pay with their lives or their liberties?"
Fr. Charles E. Coughlin of Royal Oak, Michigan had one of the most popular radio shows in the U.S. during the late 1930's. At his height of popularity, upwards of thirty million listeners tuned in to his radio show each week and he received 10,000 letters per week with a clerical staff of over 100 people. He advocated a sound money system, abolition of the Federal Reserve, a non-interventionist foreign policy, and was a stringent opponent of both Nazism and Communism, which he pointed out was funded by corrupt Jewish interests and international bankers. Fr. Coughlin exposed war-mongers and government propagandists, which made him a real threat to the establishment. He was a devout and influencial priest who stressed the Gospel and teachings of Jesus Christ. The government banned his programs and threatened to arrest and imprison him. I consider Fr. Coughlin one of the wisest and greatest American heros ever. His material is an absolute treaure, a must-see.
His work, in retrospect, was prophetic and still holds true today.
There is a well circulated clip of Fr. Coughlin on stage at an Illinois rally shouting about the treasonous politicians in Congress who refused to oppose the Federal Reserve Bank's control of American money, noting "They're not even Americans, these so-called Democrats and Republicans!" [Father Coughlin speaks against the Federal Reserve.]
An influential critic of president Roosevelt and America's empirical foreign policy, Coughlin became the target of FDR himself, who was temporarily successful in getting Coughlin kicked off the air.
LibertyFight.com has put together seven articles documenting specific aspects of the brilliant and heroic work of Father Charles E. Coughlin. I have compiled hundreds of newsletters, pamphlets, books and recordings written and spoken by this priest who to this day is shamefully and dishonestly smeared as un-American and an 'anti-semite'. In reality the exact opposite is true. A close examination of Fr. Coughlin's work is important for a revealing documented historical perspective. Also, it relates to the situation today because the same war-mongers, bankers and internationalists about to start World War III by getting the U.S. entangled in a completely fraudulent, unwinnable, an unnecessary war in Syria. As the saying goes, there is nothing new under the sun.
I encourage everyone to download Fr. Coughlin's absolutely invaluable books and listen to his recordings. More posts of interest will come in the following weeks and months as time permits. The story of how I came across this great historical figure is here. Resources are at the bottom of this page.
