Rand Paul: Chris Christie Is the 'King of Bacon'
by Arlette Saenz
July 30, 2013
The feud between two potential GOP presidential contenders escalated today as Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie traded barbs about "pork" and "bacon" throughout the day.
In an interview on CNN's "The Situation Room" with Wolf Blitzer, Paul nicknamed Christie the "King of Bacon" after the New Jersey governor accused him of engaging in "pork barrel spending." "This is the king of bacon talking about bacon," Paul said.

September 26, 2012
In the latest apparent case of what have been hundreds of thefts by TSA officers of passenger belongings, an iPad left behind at a security checkpoint in the Orlando airport was tracked as it moved 30 miles to the home of the TSA officer last seen handling it. Confronted two weeks later by ABC News, the TSA officer, Andy Ramirez, at first denied having the missing iPad, but ultimately turned it over after blaming his wife for taking it from the airport.
Ron Paul Defends Romney, Lashes Out at His Critics
by Jonathan Karl
January 10, 2012
In an exclusive interview outside a Manchester polling place, Ron Paul lashed out at fellow Republicans for making unfair and ignorant attacks on Mitt Romney's business record.
"I think they're wrong. I think they're totally misunderstanding the way the market works," Paul told me. "They are either just demagoguing or they don't have the vaguest idea how the market works." Paul also came to Romney's defense for saying "I like to be able to fire people."
Car Company Gets U.S. Loan, Builds Cars In Finland
by Matthew Mosk, Brian Ross and Ronnie Greene
October 19, 2011
With the approval of the Obama administration, an electric car company that received a $529 million federal government loan guarantee is assembling its first line of cars in Finland, saying it could not find a facility in the US capable of doing the work.
Vice President Joseph Biden heralded the Energy Department's $529 million loan to the start-up electric car company called Fisker as a bright new path to thousands of American manufacturing jobs. But two years after the loan was announced, the job of assembling the flashy electric Fisker Karma sports car has been outsourced to Finland. "There was no contract manufacturer in the U.S. that could actually produce our vehicle," the car company's founder and namesake told ABC News. "They don't exist here."
Ron Paul Launches National-Security Themed Ad
by Jason M. Volack
October 7, 2011
Republican presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul is out with a new ad that portrays him as a veteran who will secure America's borders and rebuild its defenses.
Unlike most of his GOP rivals, Paul has advocated against building a large fence at the US-Mexico border. Paul said in September at a GOP/ Politico debate that "fences may be used against us, keeping us in." He served as a flight surgeon in the Air Force from 1963 to 1965 and in the Air National Guard from 1965 to 1968.
Majority Rates Obama 'Same' as or 'Worse' Than George W. Bush
by ABC News
September 23, 2011
A majority of Americans rates President Obama "about the same" or "worse" than his predecessor, George W. Bush, according to a new Gallup poll.
Predictably, Democrats were most supportive of Obama, while Republicans favored Bush in the poll. The response from independent voters might be most telling for Obama: a troublesome 67 percent said they considered him about the same or worse than Bush.
Judge Accused of Raping Prostitute Will Put Away His Gavel
by David Lat
July 27, 2011
A New Mexico judge who has been accused of raping a prostitute has decided to resign from the bench.
Here's a quick update on the unfortunate tale of Albert "Pat" Murdoch, the New Mexico state court judge who has been accused of raping a prostitute. He will be retiring from the bench, as of Friday, and he has agreed never to seek another judicial office in the state. (Maybe he should run for elective office? It worked out for Alcee Hastings, who successfully ran for Congress after getting impeached from his federal judgeship.)
71-year-old taken to the ground for questioning Paul Ryan
August 12, 2012
I guess this sets the tone for what we should expect. Are we really surprised?
The old man didn't exactly use tact by expressing his view, but I can understand the frustration he is feeling to watch everything you work for get pissed away and they don't care. They (both sides) just don't care about anything other than staying in control.
The IRS Scandal Escalates
by Jay Sekulow
July 18, 2013
Everything we have heard from the IRS and the Obama Admin about the targeting of the Tea Party seems to end up being proven false, one by one, as the congressional investigation and our lawsuit on behalf of 41 targeted conservative groups continues.
The latest bombshell revelation comes from congressional testimony of senior IRS attorneys directly involved in the targeting of the Tea Party that IRS Chief Counsel's office was directly involved in targeting the Tea Party, delaying their applications, and developing the unconstitutional and intrusive inquire process. IRS Chief Counsel William Wilkins is a direct political appointee of President Obama in 2009 and significantly calls into question the Obama Administration's ever evolving timeline of who knew what when, but even more importation who directed and orchestrated the targeting of the Tea Party.
Abortion-Pill Accommodation Unacceptable
by Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice (aclj)
June 27, 2013
Less than 24 hours after being socked on the chin by the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in the Hobby Lobby case, the Obama Administration showed that it is still incapable of understanding reality when it comes to religious liberty.
In the latest version of the "Final Rules" - known better as the "HHS Mandate" - the Administration offers religious groups such as the Little Sisters of the Poor and Louisiana Baptist College the same carrot they've been dangling before them for over a year - "you provide your employees a health insurance plan that excludes drugs you have religious objections to, including abortion-inducing drugs, and we'll magically make sure they get them anyway." How this is to happen technically is spelled out in 110 pages of bureaucratic gobbledygook that has as a goal (so the government assures us) "respecting the concerns of nonprofit religious organizations that object to contraceptive coverage." The Founders didn't need 110 pages - or even one page -- to protect religious liberty. They needed only one sentence, the sentence that stands at the top of our Bill of Rights...
