Sarah Wheaton in the New York Times

On the 23rd, Sarah Wheaton of the NYT had a space devoted to GOP reaction to Libya; Michele Bachmann comes off as a dove, but one wonders if her protest is just to be contrary? I mean if W had nuked Libya, would she not be giving thanks and praise? One wonders...and one wonders why Wheaton omitted any word about Ron Paul. Are mentally challenged journalists shaking in their boots that there may come to power a president who does not do stupid things that they can go write about easily?
Just for the record, the complaints Romney and Bachmann make do not deserve the space - what is of note is the fact that Ron Paul wanted to limit the president's power to make war like this and he is right.
Whether or not Libya turns out OK, this is a democracy and the president's power needs to be limited in this regard as it was with Washington. Both parties have failed the American people in allowing this to happen. It could set a dangerous precedent - and just now it is too early to say if things are going well in Libya - but that is not the point; we hope the rebels establish a working government and there is lots of peace and love, which may not actually be the case - but whatever happens, it needs to happen lawfully.

Mitt Romney plans to demolish the White House

Just saw this on Mark of the Mask bloodspot...
very funny. Hope it's not true...

Mitt Romney has already decided that when he is elected president, he will have to demolish the White House as it is too small for him and his many kids and grandkids.
Last week he decided to demolish his $12million, 3,009 sq ft mansion in La Jolla and build a palace instead, which will be 11,602 sq ft.
He found his old homestead in Belmont, Mass too small, so he sold it for $3.5 million and also got rid of a chalet in Utah for $5.3.
He is keeping his $10 million waterfront house in New Hampshire. Live rich or die...
And oh, President is too small a title, the GOP wants Americans to call him Your Royal Highness.

Sex, Lies and Rick Perry

A full page ad in the Austin Chronicle asks people to step forward if they had sex with Rick Perry. This may or may not be in good taste; the advertiser insinuates Perry is bi and has relations with women in strip joints. This was all placed by Robert Morrow, a Ron Paul supporter, but it seems he is acting on his own and I doubt Paul knows about it. So we shall see...We may never is not that important, though it would show he is another lying hypocrite.
But we do know about his campaign contributors getting lots and lots and lots and lots of cashpayers' hard-earned dosh after they gave Mr Perry some money. The New York Times was quite explicit about it all in yesterday's paper, with an account of a Mr. McHale getting $3million from the coffers for his company, G-Con. And who are they trying to con? Before this generous endowment, McHale gave the Perry party $50,000. Two Texas agencies, the Texas Enterprise Fund and the Texas Emerging Technology Fund, dole out $635million to people who seem to like Perry a lot, such as David Shanahan, whose company, Gradalis, received a $1.75 million tech grant after Shanahan gave Perry a grant of $10,000 in 2009. Shanahan is also connected to G-Con. And it this did not start to sound like a con game, then consider the fact that a payment made by TXU was dated the same day as the governor's order to fast track their application. Then there is Bob Perry who made  Perry to Perry donations of more than $2million. A new commission headed by Perry gave the other Perry a break - it created a board that sharply limited the rights of homeowners to sue contractors for faulty construction. Bob Perry owns a construction business which benefitted from the curtailment of homeowners' rights. And just after this piece of legilation, he and his wife each sent in $50,000 to Rick Perry. Very Perry. Very suspicious.
And so yet again a lengthy article in the press...which omits any mention of Ron Paul.
And we may yet hear more of Perry, Rick Perry that is, if Mr. Morrow's ad bears any fruit.

S&P Downgrade

S & P Downgrades Iowa’s IQ

Straw Poll ‘Alarms’ Ratings Agency

AMES, IOWA (Borowitz) – Calling the results of today's Iowa straw poll “alarming,” Standard and Poor’s took the unprecedented action of downgrading Iowa’s IQ.

While the effects of such an extraordinary measure are hard to predict, experts say the IQ downgrade could result in Iowans having difficulty completing sentences or operating a television remote.

“This downgrade would be very upsetting to Republicans in Iowa,” said an S & P spokesman.  “Fortunately, there’s no way they’ll understand it.”

The winner in the straw poll, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn), gave a rousing victory speech that was simulcast in English across the state.

But there may be tough sledding ahead for Rep. Bachmann, as a new poll shows her losing support to Texas Governor Rick Perry among voters who describe themselves as morons.

Gov. Perry kicked off his presidential campaign today in South Carolina, unveiling a new stump speech in which he promised to repeal the twentieth century.

Ron Paul on front page now of New York Times

So now Ron Paul gets mentioned, albeit only slightly, in an article on the front page of the New York Times yesterday by John M. Broder, whose theme is that all GOP candidates bash the EPA. Well, not quite in Ron Paul's case. But let's not let a good headline be spoiled by a detailed study of things...
It is almost true, given that Bachmann and Perry want to either padlock its doors or impose a moratorium on environmental regulation. So good news for idiots who want to pollute America.
Herman Cain disappoints me in that he is ready to have independent commissions which would include oil and gas execs. Why not let child abusers run the schools while you're at it.
Broder, not wishing to spoil his own headline, did not bother to mention that Ron Paul is supporting a hemp initiative...see it on Recently one of his contsituents sent him a letter and he replied, it is up there. Broder and his mates at the NYT can check it out. Or just write simplistic articles, which is much easier.
But I have to admit the GOP is the party that scares me when it comes to the environment; remember the joke, how much energy does it take to destroy all America's forests? Just one allusion to James Watt, Secretary of the Environment in the Reagan days...back then they figured that trees caused pollution. Watt went after trees and falconers with a vengeance, trying to get them framed  (the falconers, not the trees) for smuggling in one of the biggest legal farces in US history. He did not like their pro-environemntal stance. Ultimately he, and not a single falconer, went to prison.
So there are lots of falconers in redneck states who are not going to vote GOP that easily, even if they are hunters. If the GOP is going to overcome its image as treekillers, it better get in Ron Paul.
And then there was an article on the back page of the paper, which said a lot of good about Ron Paul without bothering to mention him, but rather by NOT mentioning him; this one by Frank Bruni. Personally, of all the NYT political hacks, I like Bruni the best; I will forgive his ommission in regards to Dr Paul as his article was on GOP loonies, titled "Heroes, Until They've Arrived." It started off with Mr Mouth, Rick Perry; then made its way to mention Sarah Palin (the quitter), Chris Christie (of very little political experience), Paul Ryan ( Paul who?), Rudy Giuliani (of whom he notes: Some Republicans never learn), Michele Bachmann, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich (as the blue-eyed Grinch who stole Grandma's Boniva) and Marco Rubio (Marco who?).
So there you have it; that leaves us with Ron Paul and Herman Cain, even if the latter does have some less than perfect ideas about the environment.

New York Times on lack of Ron Paul coverage

Ron Paul was in yesterday's New York Times for the fact that he was not mentioned in the NYT - after coming in a close second in the straw poll; see previous post for details. Michael D. Shear writes:

'Is Representative Ron Paul getting a raw deal in the news coverage of his presidential campaign? 
Jon Stewart, the host of "The Daily Show", thinks so. And so do many fans of Mr. Paul, who have taken to e-mail and Twitter to vent their frustration that his strong second-place finish in the Iowa straw poll is being largely ignored.
"It's absolutely horrendous and despicable the lack of media coverage Ron Paul is getting," one of them wrote on Twitter.
Readers of the New York Times expressed their views on its coverage of the straw polls in a flurry of e-mails. Mr Paul, a 12-term Republican congressman from Texas, lost to Representative Michele Bachmann of Minnesota by only 152 of 17,000 votes cast.
"We live in a democratic republic, where the votes of the people deserve to be reported by the media, not editorialized into obscurity, wrote Matthew H. Harder.
Richard Timm wrote that "Ron Paul's second-place finish merited much more attention in your article."
"Even if you don't believe he can win the nomination," Mr. Timm wrote, "don't you think it's worth given the only antiwar Republican worth a little more emphasis?"
But some skeptics have pointed out that Mr. Paul's strength at the straw poll seems outsized when compared with his popularity across the country, at least as measured by opinion polls.
Of course, Mr. Paul's followers would say that his low standing in the polls is a result of the failure of the news media to adequately report on his successes at events like the straw poll.

I called the NYT  - 212-556-1234 to get to talk to this reporter, but the voice recognition machine either did not have him on as a reporter or sent me to other people. The NYT  phone maze is hard to navigate, it's as if they want to write hit-and-run articles and then hide from the general public; once a reporter contacted me about a stash of stolen art I was privy to, and when I told him there were Picassos, he was so arrogant the refused to believe me; then it turned out there were Picassos - which had been stolen by the movers, who tried to sell them stupidly in NY.

The NYT has to learn to listen and it would be a better paper; it reports on Michele Bachmann, who got a write up yesterday again for her stupidity - when she remarked on it being Elvis' birthday  - it wasn't - and on Rick Perry - again, for his stupidity - and he got a much lengthier column for saying something that sounded like a threat towards a government official. All the papers covered it, and even right-wingers like John Podhoretz were forced to note how wrong it was.

But when someone acts presidential, reporters ignore it.

I did get through to Jeff Zeleny, who is also covering the debates, and had to call his other number - 202-862-0401. I told him I'd been reading the paper for over 40 years and that they ought to listen to the people who pay their salaries. Next I will email him at

So let's see...they missed the Picasso story, even when they were the ones to contact me, hopefully they will not miss the Ron Paul story as well.

Missing: Real News

The press in New York must not like Ron Paul; oddly for this city, it is lavishing its print space on Rick Perry, Mitt Romney and Michele Bachmann. Michael Barone in the Post  (owned by Rupert Murdoch) writes: 'Some candidates did mention intelligent policy initiatives in the debate.' But does he mention Paul? No. He praises Romney and Bachmann; who are not going to get many votes among New Yorkers. Then he goes on to talk about Thaddeus McCotter (excuse me, Thaddeus who?) for promoting debt-for-equity swaps.
Is McCotter on the House Banking Committee? Did he suggest the fed stop borrowing from the fed and by so doing reduce the debt in a single swoop? Where was Barone when Ron Paul put this forward? Or any of the rest of the press, for that matter?
The New York Times turns a lens on the press when it said in Sunday's paper the following: 'If politicians exhibited some silliness in Iowa, do did reporters. Like hounds to a whistle, they swarmed to Sarah  Palin when she dropped by the state fair on Friday, again rewarding her coyness about the presidential race with extra-rapt attention. She dithers; we drool.'
And you are fools. You mislead the public, whether by accident or by design. The front page of yesterday's NYT one might call an out-and-out lie; it has a line in large print reading: 'Top 3 Contenders Set Sights on Obama and One Another.'
Top 3? Ron Paul was #2 in the straw poll, and only a point behind Bachmann - see the post before this to see why; some would say Bachmann's votes were bogus. But granting her first place, how is the runner-up completely forgotten the next day by so large a news outfit as the NYT? Or are the reporters lost in their silliness, drooling over Ms. Hotlips from Alaska?
The other two contenders they talk about are Rick Perry - who was not even present at the straw poll, and Mitt Romney. And Romney did not come even near to 2nd place. So how is he a top contender?
As to Perry, I think we are in real danger; he was Bush's vice-governor. Not a good sign. He is rather against gun control, having signed measures to make it easier to carry a concealed weapon - he has a permit  for this himself.
But as the NYT reporters Jeff Zeleny and Michael Shear noted in yesterday's article, quoting Senator Charles E. Grassley - 'This is a very fluid situation right now. From here on, you are shooting with real bullets.'

Ron Paul soars ahead in Iowa

So now Ron Paul is on the front page of the New York Times, where he belongs. Jeff Zeleny writes that he came in second to Bachmann, but only by a point - leaving others way behind. He also notes that Bachmann got her votes by investing heavily, paying the $30 fee for her voters, giving them free accommodation, free food and a free concert. He asks parenthetically if that is how we elect our presidents?  Rick Perry did not bother to show, but did announce his candidacy. Yeah, right. Like America wants a guy who holds stadium Taliban style religion shows...Or did he announce his candidacy for president of Texas - which is a possibility - the NYT mentioned that in his race for governor the issue of state secession came up.
One thing that ought to be clear when Perry takes credit for anything good in Texas is that he has been in office there much less time than Ron Paul, and it is Ron Paul's 14th district that is doing well - it is called the 'Golden Crescent.' Perry has little to show for his terms in office.
So expect to see more of Ron Paul on the front page of all the papers...and not for holding immense prayer meetings, gay bashing or being MIA at the his rivals.

Ron Paul's reply to Mina Hegaard, his constituent in Texas

This summer Mina Hegaard contacted Ron Paul about his hemp bill - she supports it and has run a made in the USA hemp business for years - Minawear.

Here is his reply:

Dear Mina:

Thank you for contacting my office regarding allowing farmers to grow industrial hemp.

I have introduced my bill HR 1831, the Industrial Hemp Farming Act. Please see below my speech announcing the introduction of HR 1831.


Statement Introducing the Industrial Hemp Farming Act, HR 1831 
May 11, 2011

Mr. Speaker, I rise to introduce the Industrial Hemp Farming Act. The Industrial Hemp Farming Act requires the federal government to respect state laws allowing the growing of industrial hemp.

Nine States--Hawaii, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon, Vermont, and West Virginia--allow industrial hemp production or research in accord with state laws. However, federal law is standing in the way of farmers in these states growing what may be a very profitable crop. Because of current federal law, all hemp included in products sold in the United States must be imported instead of being grown by American farmers.

Since 1970, the federal Controlled Substances Act's inclusion of industrial hemp in the schedule one definition of marijuana has prohibited American farmers from growing industrial hemp despite the fact that industrial hemp has such a low content of THC (the psychoactive chemical in the related marijuana plant) that nobody can be psychologically affected by consuming hemp. Federal law concedes the safety of industrial hemp by allowing it to be legally imported for use as food.

The United States is the only industrialized nation that prohibits industrial hemp cultivation. The Congressional Research Service has noted that hemp is grown as an established agricultural commodity in approximately 30 nations in Europe, Asia, North America, and South America. The Industrial Hemp Farming Act will relieve this unique restriction on American farmers and allow them to grow industrial hemp in accord with state law.

Industrial hemp is a crop that was grown legally throughout the United States for most of our nation's history. In fact, during World War II, the federal government actively encouraged American farmers to grow industrial hemp to help the war effort. The Department of Agriculture even produced a film "Hemp for Victory'' encouraging the plant's cultivation.

In recent years, the hemp plant has been put to many popular uses in foods and in industry. Grocery stores sell hemp seeds and oil as well as food products containing oil and seeds from the hemp plant. Industrial hemp is also included in consumer products such as paper, cloths, cosmetics, carpet, and door frames of cars. Hemp has even been used in alternative automobile fuel.

It is unfortunate that the federal government has stood in the way of American farmers competing in the global industrial hemp market. Indeed, the founders of our nation, some of whom grew hemp, would surely find that federal restrictions on farmers growing a safe and profitable crop on their own land are inconsistent with the constitutional guarantee of a limited, restrained federal government. Therefore, I urge my colleagues to stand up for American farmers and cosponsor the Industrial Hemp Farming Act.


Ron Paul

Ron Paul crowds in Iowa

Wow! The New York Times has mentioned Ron Paul again...which is rare, as he does not do anything weird or strange that reporters love to mention. What they wrote was this:

Ron Paul, who has been drawing crowds that often rival or surpass many of his rivals, asked for his supporters to send a message to the party establishment, which has paid little attention to his candidacy. He has logged more days in Iowa than almost anyone else, an investment that he hopes will lend a sense of legitimacy to his campaign.

Sending a message to the GOP is part of my purposes with this blog - to tell them that Ron Paul has the broadest base of support while being a real conservative that most GOP voters will embrace.
Ron Paul also snagged the best space for his tent, paying $31,000 for the space adjoining the Scheman Building where the votes are cast. Sarah Palin paid nothing...but then she is not an official candidate. She just hangs about. Getting the press to pay attention to her hairdo and illegitimate grandchildren and anything else that has nothing to do with an ability to run the country.

Herman Cain leads the gang

OK, this is not a blog to get Herman Cain in as president, but he did lead the procession of candidates and gave a very good answer to those who tell him he does not understand who Washington works...he tells them, " Yes, I do. It doesn't."
He chose to attack his fellow candidates for being politicians. Which he is not. But would be if elected. So then how would he stand? I like the guy but realistically, he has no political experience, and that is essential here. But as I have noted previously he could be VP.
Then he'd know firsthand who Washtington works...or doesn't.

Drum roll in Iowa

So the whole affair is looking a bit like a WWF event...and reporters are making their notes on it all.
They do tend to concentrate on the most way out contestants, rather than the well paced and sensible.
But the New York Times did mention Ron Paul again yesterday, if only to briefly note that he took exception to Michele Bachman's legislative record. What legislative record?
Michael Cooper of the NYT caught her out on a couple mistakes - sad, again, that press goes to candidates for making mistakes...such as the foot-in-mouth moment of Mitt Romney, who gave Ashley Parker a lengthy column in the paper to scourge him for his 'coporations are people' remark. No they are not; people pay taxes. Corporations do not. OK, I misspoke a bit; some corporations pay taxes.
So this is like the first couple of rounds here, with the novices coming out swinging and girating wildy while the older, more experienced fighters wear them down and bide their time to step in.

Ron Paul in Iowa

Michael D. Shear in the New York Times gave Dr Paul a nice write-up yesterday (11 Aug.) -
he noted that Paul is now better known than when he first ran for POTUS, and is on track for what could be a top-three finish at the Iowa Straw Poll in Ames on Saturday. Rival campaigns suggest they believe Paul might actually win the poll, given the strength of his support among libertarians, college students and an increasing number of traditional Republicans who are now beginning to agree with his longstanding criticism of the government spending and the federal debt.
Asked whether he felt a sense of vindication after preaching for years that the country was headed for a debt crisis, he said he wasn't raised to gloat.
So we shall see...Dr Paul brings to the table the fact that he has been proven right about things; this alone sets him above the others. And the fact that he is not making so much noise about it shows a sense of dignity necessary for a head-of-state.

Politics and Religion

Ever notice that Ron Paul does not play the religion card? Not that he isn't a Christian, just that he does not blow a trumpet when he prays...and does not pray in a stadium so 30,000 people can hear it. Yesterday in the New York Times there was an article about Tim Pawlenty, who is going after the religious vote in Iowa. Or what is left of it after that other candidate from Minnesota takes it.
It was pointed out in the Spanish press that the US is in a war to keep religious fundamentalists from taking over Afghanistan, and, um, using large stadiums for their religious meetings...
I guess since the governor of Texas did not fight in a war he did not take that into account. But he might have read the Gospel in which Christ tells people not to sound a trumpet when they pray or do alms. He commands things to be done in secret that God the Father might reward people openly.
So, if you are religious, by all means pray for Ron Paul, but do it in silence - your prayers need to be effective - the US needs all it can get.

Big Week in Iowa

Jeff Zeleny casts an eye on the GOP antics in Iowa this week. The town of Tiffin is full of the biggies, all waiting to debate on Thursday...which I will miss. The circus may be free but it is not for me.
Although, of course, I am working to get Ron Paul to the White's just that I am not the typical GOP person, and this is not about me supporting the GOP. As Zeleny notes in his article (7 August, New York Times, "Republican Jockey as a Big Week Begins in Iowa"), Dr Paul has 'wide appeal among voters with a libertarian strain...' He then notes the candidate's 'deep support of his core followers', who have been 'encouraged to send the party a message.'
The GOP cannot be unaware of the fact that many of the candidate here are hard core Republicans, too hard core, and cannot win any votes outside of that base. Not that Paul is soft on the major issues - he is anti-immigration, pro-America, and, unlike his GOP contenders, did military time - as an officer in the medical corps.
On the other hand, Paul is more centrist on other issues, such as gay marriage, which he is not out promoting, but has always considered something that ought to be allowed. A non-issue really. And of course the hemp issue seems to put him in the left, or in the Greens - as so many Democrats are MIA on this one, mistaking it for a 'dope' issue - they ought to read. But Paul is an environmentalist, opposed to nuclear power. But against abortion. Some call him a centrist.
Whatever the label, he has the widest base of support of any of the GOPers. So I am not going to watch Bachmann tell me that the White House 'fears my candidacy more than any other' - no, Michele, it probably supports yours as yours has the narrowest support base of any, and you have the least experience of any. Your main issue was gay rights, or the denial thereof.
So it should be interesting, and hopefully we will be hearing more about Dr Paul in the press as the debate turns to real issues. Such as, the economy.

512 and falling fast

These last two weeks have brought about a string of bad news on the market, with the Dow Jones falling 512 points yesterday...much of this has been psychological, though on top of real problems like a loss of industries to other countries.
The budget deal was reached, with both parties looking bad. This does not inspire confidence. Bad news causes more bad news and few are betting on a rally.
Ron Paul voted no on the compromise, which was a sensible move. But he is not in with the GOP hardliners who just wanted a tax break. He has real ideas about cutting silly things like the government borrowing from the government which is a big part of the debt...common sense does not prevail, why not?
He barely gets mention in the press. What does get mention is the warmongering scare tactics of Arthur Herman and Peter Brookes, who tell us in the Post that we need more money for the Pentagon...which lost $2.4 trillion - not million, not billion - trillion - by 10 September, 2001. Find the money lads and we can balance the budget; why ask for more money for an institution that cannot account for such sums? And that was before billions more got 'lost' in Iraq...
Michael Barone, in the same Murdoch rag, tells us that the GOP has no one with the high-level experience in foreign or fiscal matters that some contenders in the Democratic fields of 1968 and 1972 had. This clever wording avoid mention of Ron Paul - who is both on the House Banking Committee, and the House Foreign Affairs Committee...Barone makes it sound like none of the candidates have such experience, who really remembers the CV of the '68 and '72 Dem candidates?
With this much self-serving and selective information, or disinformation in the press, it is possible that a candidate WITH financial and foreign experience will be overlooked. The very tone of the Post's rants add to the gloom. But might that not be part of a Murdoch strategy? Kick the people when they are down, and then buy up shares cheap?
With or without help from the press, we are in for more selloffs on Wall Street, the summer is usually a time of slow trading and losses, so we have another month of this. Not that the usual September rally is a given either, so we may be in for many months of it all. The best thing for the economy would be to get some good news, and having a candidate with the experience of Ron Paul, however he does not, in Mr Barone's opinion - measure up to the unnamed and long-forgotten Dem candidates of yore, who by the way both lost to Nixon - would possibly bring a measure of confidence; both in his ability, and in his honesty. That last a rare trait in a politician these days. Actually both seem to be rare traits; ones we need, and can get in with Ron Paul.

Talk in NY about Ron Paul

New York, New York...some think this is the capital of the world. In some areas, though, it certainly is not without a say. Such as finance and politics. Two topics of discussion best not brought up at a summer garden party...right? Well, somehow it is hard these days not to talk about them...after all, Wednesday on Wall Street there was a bare market...50 people demanding transparency got in front of the big banks and stripped starkers.
Later that day I was at a charity event for the St George's Society of New York held at the Union Theological Seminary, which is in the Columbia University complex (fully dressed I might add...). Fine examples of architecture they were! Grey cathedrals on a wet, grey day... which meant the garden party was held indoors.
The speaker was the new General Consul from the UK, Danny Lopez, a finance man with former experience at Barclays (here in NY) and a former interim CEO of the London Development Agency. He will be promoting the 2012 Olympics. Of course there was a long queue to meet and greet, and then another long queue as we went back to our T&Ts and beef sandwiches and talked about, well, you know, finance and politics...and me, being the guy from Texas with an interest in Ron Paul, I was just a wee bit curious to see which way the wind was blowing among a well heeled well educated NY crowd...full of Churchillians, Pilgrims, etc. etc. I was pleased to find support for Ron Paul; the other candidates just seemed to leave a void, right or left. And there was just one other bloke from the Lone Star State - attired in a kilt. A fellow Celt. And a fellow Ron Paul supporter...
So it was a good party after all, despite the rain. Which of course blew in from London!
A warm welcome to Mr Lopez, who, on account of his role as HM Consul to NY, has a solid excuse to avoid at least the subject of politics...
One day I hope he will meet the Texan Congressman and future President of the United States.
And as to finance and politics? I am sure they will find better things to talk about...

Official Ron Paul for President blog started today!

I just found out the official Ron Paul blogspot has started this is the, or one of the, unofficial ones...and one of the first too! But I am happy to send people to the official one - and would do a link if there had been one on bradenton - so I just cut and pasted as is with a bradenton link to it at the bottom...navigate as you can, and I will do a link when the URL is made public.

The Ron Paul 2012 presidential campaign committee has announced the kick-off of the official campaign blog. The blog, provided by columnist Jack Hunter, will serve as a direct link to voters.
“It is a genuine privilege to be a part of the Ron Paul 2012 presidential campaign, and I am excited to get this blog going,” said Hunter.
Hunter, a long-time radio host and The American Conservative Magazine columnist, is a prominent figure on the conservative political scene. He has worked for WTMA 1250 AM talk radio in Charleston, South Carolina, and writes a column for the Charleston City Paper. Jack also produces widely popular weekly video podcasts.
