Rand Paul has just officially entered the 2016 Presidential race:
As Hilary Clinton starts to ponder the curtains she wants to hang in the Oval Office, there is only one person who can realistically stand in her way: Rand Paul.
The most incredible thing you realize from Carmen Segarra’s account of her brief stint at the Fed, is that when push came to shove and non-compliance issues were revealed, her bosses had no backbone whatsoever and in fact scrambled to protect the banks and coverup their malfeasance.
Incredibly, this was still business as usual just a couple of years after the banks destroyed the global economy, ripped apart the rule of law, and demanded and received trillions in taxpayer backstops and bailouts.
So were Carmen’s efforts all for naught? Thanks to her secretly recording over 46 hours worth of conversations, it’s possible that her whistleblowing may ultimately bear some real fruit.
In the near-term, the most interesting angle is whether or not it will affect the fate of the “Audit the Fed” bill in the U.S. Senate.
Elizabeth Warren has called for congressional hearings into allegations that the Federal Reserve Bank of New York has been too deferential to the firms it regulates in light of the Segarra revelations.
Thursday, Sen. Rand Paul finally did what he had been threatening to do for months: He officially filed a class-action lawsuit against the Obama administration, the National Security Agency and a host of other security officials regarding a US surveillance program that collects information on millions of American citizens.
Rand Paul has issued an impassioned video address demanding that our current surveillance state be returned to the land of the free:
“We were once outraged and dismayed and spurred to resist when British soldiers came knocking at our door with illegitimate warrants seeking taxes on our papers. Today, your government responds that there is no expectation of privacy once you consign your records to a third party...
Your government argues that the Fourth Amendment applies not at all to your bank records, your Visa bill, your internet searches or purchases or emails. If not resistance, shouldn’t there at least be outrage?
Are we so afraid of terrorists that we are willing to give up the very freedoms that separate us from them?

One of the more interesting developments with the Obama Administration’s campaign for war has been the rise of Senator Rand Paul as a key anti-war voice. No surprise. Observers of Rand Paul have expected him to be even more vocal than his father, Ron Paul. The media is looking for a “face” of the opposition. They’re finding Rand Paul. As his prominence grows now, it will prove to be more difficult for the mainstream media to ignore him later and shut his voice out of the national debate — which is exactly what they did to his father during Ron Paul’s campaign for the White House.

Kitco’s Daniela Cambone caught up with Senator Rand Paul on the sidelines of FreedomFest in Las Vegas to discuss the gold standard. His father, former member of the US House of Representative Dr. Ron Paul, has been known to advocate a return to a gold standard and Daniela asked Sen. Rand Paul if he would carry the torch. The senator thinks a commission would be needed to study whether a gold standard is feasible. Paul aims at bolstering the US dollar and he thinks the issue of QE needs to be addressed. “Bernanke has been expanding the money supply exponentially and it is leading to an illusion,” Paul said. This illusion led to the recession we are in now, Paul added.

In the wake of yesterday’s historic 13 hour filibuster by Rand Paul in protest of the Obama administration’s refusal to answer the simple question as to whether it believed it has the authority to make a targeted lethal drone strike against a US citizen within the US that is not an imminent threat, AG Eric Holder has finally submitted an official response from the Obama Administration.
Holder’s official response on the Obama’s Administration view on drone murder of US Citizens is below:
In a letter dated March 4th 2013 written to Senator Rand Paul, Attorney General Eric Holder officially confirmed that the Obama administration will murder uncharged US citizens within the US via aerial drone strike if necessary to protect the homeland.
The USA is now officially the USSA.
Holder’s official full letter to Senator Paul is below:
