Can I leave the Daily Paul in your hands?

If I had to go away and do some other things. Can I trust you to be a grownup now? Can I trust the passengers of the ark not to attack one another?

I think of the Daily Paul as the watering hole in an arid desert. All the animals come around to drink - the lions and other animals of prey, as well as the zebras, and deer or whatever. They don't attack each other - not at the watering hole. It is one thing that they all have in common. They all have thirst.

At the Daily Paul, we all have thirst. The thirst is good natured, and well intentioned. Those are the kinds of people that I like to see, and that is why it hurts so much when that is taken advantage of. But that seems to be the way of our hypercompetitive world. Aim for the weak spot, and then plunge.

But it doesn't have to be that way.

A Rick, A Dick & A Chuck Start the Fearmongering Over ISIS

Rick Perry, fresh off his 2nd Amendment rights being stripped, has taken the stage to fan the flames of domestic panic over the terrorist group known as ISIS. He’s not alone, however, as Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel has also jumped on the bandwagon following the brutal and barbaric beheading of American journalist James Foley this week.

Perry:

They need to be eliminated, and they need to be eliminated now,” Texas Gov. Rick Perry said of the growing threat of the Islamic State, a “terrorist army” formerly known as ISIS rampaging through Iraq.

Hagel:

ALS Ice Bucket Chall(scam)enge

Not quite as bad as the American Red Cross but it's up there.

I am always skeptical of a "MANIA" and thats what this has become. Just like Kony 2009....

and like any claim the allegations should be verified. It turns out this dude is only partially right.

Found: The Secret Playbook of Internet Trolls! Understanding their game.

I'm loving it! Another plank to strengthen the Ark!

This article by Washingtonsblog.com can be really helpful to keep the DailyPaul and other Liberty Movement websites troll free or troll controlled. Please do comment on how you think this article about the troll tactics and the links in it could help the discussion and moderation here.

From: http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/08/trolls-whats-confusin...
"What’s Confusing You Is the Nature of Their Game

The reason that Internet trolls are effective is that people still don’t understand their game.

Chasing the Ark with my little row boat

Hey DP,

I'm one of the new people from that one day that the "Ark door" was opened and we were allowed to subscribe again. Believe it or not I have been following the site since at least 2011 during the run up to the 2012 republican primaries. The DP came up when I was searching for more information on Ron Paul and I've been coming back ever since.

Now I feel like I should explain myself a bit. It wasn't really my style to pay a subscription fee to chat it up with a bunch of people that were probably way smarter than me in the comments and to vote on posts. I may have tried to sign up once but registration was only open on Wednesdays and by the time I was serious about doing it the "Ark" door was closed.

When it was finally opened back at the end of July I was excited to finally contribute my part (intellectually and financially). That is when I learned that subscribing could be free anyway. The irony right? I could have been pestering you people for years! Anyway, I decided to go ahead and contribute some money anyway (maybe I'll make a post about contributing to causes you believe in later...?) and sure enough the paypal link was broken so I couldn't become a new member after all.

This may have happened to many of the 100 or so people that tried to make an account and couldn't. I just called the number from the email in paypal and got it figured out that way. Michael is pretty great for doing that. He said that I wasn't the only one with this problem so if you didn't make it in and you have that contact info then I'd go for it. I'm so excited to be here!! Thank you for having me!

The Daily Paul Needs Your Help: Summer 2014 Fundraiser Day 12 - 91% Complete!


Dear Friends,

We opened up registration for the first time in a long time, and that revealed some bugs in the site that are in need of fixing. The DP is like a big old drafty house, in need of some maintenance and repair, and for that I need your help.

I went to set up a donation widget at that great free site chipin.com, and its gone! That internet institution, ChipIn is no more. That's what happens to free resources on the internet. Eventually, they disappear.

Please don't let that happen to the Daily Paul. You can make a one time or recurring contribution to the DP with your PayPal account or your credit or debit card.


PayPal address: bull@bullnotbull.com


Bitcoin is also gladly accepted at the Daily Paul's official bitcoin address:

16oZXSGAcDrSbZeBnSu84w5UWwbLtZsBms


Since ChipIn is no more, and there are no other free substitutes that I can find, I will be updating the thermometer manually.


The address for physical payments (silver, gold, cash, check and love letters) is:

Citizens LOOKOUT! Man Says He Killed Four Americans In Response To U.S. Foreign Policy...

"My mission is vengeance": Ali Muhammad Brown a Seattle Man says he killed four people (right here in America) in response to U.S. foreign policy.

My only question is this:
Why didn't he go after the bastards who MAKE and SUPPORT the policies of intervention and violence like Graham, McCain, King, Cheney, Rove, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Medved, Hannity, Levin, Limbaugh, etc???

The policymakers ALWAYS get by unscathed while we the people are made a lot less safe both abroad AND at home.

The importance of this story must not be underestimated.

Rand Paul snuck off to Guatemala to restore poor people’s sight

http://rare.us/story/rand-paul-snuck-off-to-guatemala-to-res...

It’s tempting to think that Paul’s Guatemala trip was for political expedience, but history shows otherwise.

Eighteen years ago the then-full-time ophthalmologist performed eye surgery pro-bono for two Guatemalan brothers, Juan and Andres Hernandez. The nonprofit group Children of the Americas brought the brothers, along with other children from Guatemala, to Kentucky so they could receive the vision-restoring surgery.

What military weapons does your police department have? A (great) interactive map

Mapping the Spread of the Military’s Surplus Gear

State and local police departments obtain some of their military-style equipment through a free Defense Department program created in the early 1990s. While the portion of their gear that comes from the program is relatively small (most of it is paid for by the departments or through federal grants), detailed data from the Pentagon illustrates how ubiquitous such equipment has become. Highlighted counties have received guns, grenade launchers, vehicles, night vision or body armor through the program since 2006.
