It’s My Party and I’ll Convene if I Want to

Rep. Ron Paul really wants to speak at the Republican convention. He’s been getting the cold shoulder from the GOP, so now Paul is planning to hold his own convention in a nearby arena during the week that John McCain officially becomes the nominee.

The Thorn in McCain’s Side

Ron Paul has framed his campaign as a long-term fight for the soul of his party. To that end, Paul has continued to campaign against John McCain, even though he has no shot at the nomination, and his supporters are planning to publicly upstage the nominee at the Republican convention in September.

Ron Paul Won’t Go Away

John McCain may have the Republican nomination wrapped up, but that isn’t stopping Ron Paul from campaigning in Pennsylvania, where he is attacking McCain as insufficiently conservative. It’s an odd posture for a candidate who won much support for his anti-war position, a topic that Paul omits here.

Inquest: Driver, Paparazzi at Fault in Diana ‘Manslaughter’

An inquest jury in Britain has officially concluded that Princess Diana and her companion, Dodi Al Fayed, were killed in a 1997 car crash in Paris as a result of “gross negligence manslaughter” by their chauffeur, Henri Paul, and the paparazzi.

Republicans Spar Over the War

There were some heated exchanges in Wednesday’s debate between the Republican candidates. John McCain and Mitt Romney argued about who wanted to stay in Iraq longer and Ron Paul won a round of applause when he said the front-runners were bickering over “technicalities” while their war bankrupts the country.

Who Will Take On the Banks?

Because Dennis Kucinich was barred from the Democrats’ South Carolina debate, there was no one willing to say what Kucinich would have said: Bankers are crooks who will steal from the public unless the government holds them accountable.

Ron Paul on CNN

Ron Paul Calls CNN Out for Being ‘Biased’ in Debate

Boy, was CNN ever psyched about a Ron Paul interview they had on their site—a major traffic driver for CNN.com!—the day of the CNN/YouTube Republican debate, CNN’s John Roberts tells Paul in this clip from the channel’s post-debate coverage Wednesday.  Paul, seemingly nonplused, points out that he was summarily and unfairly ignored until close to the end and gets in a few digs at his fellow candidates.

A Thanksgiving Reality Check

Along with family gatherings and counting one’s blessings, Thanksgiving has come to signify a rather rosy view of the unity of American society.  This weekend, however, two largely overlooked news items—one about unexpected financial issues that some wounded American veterans face and another about hunger in New York City—tell a different story.

‘Liberty Dollar’ Crackdown

Ron Paul may not be ahead in the polls, but he’s probably the only presidential candidate who already has his face on a coin. The feds have seized a cache of gold, silver and copper “liberty dollars” bearing Paul’s visage. Other than a mutual distaste for the Federal Reserve, the Republican candidate has no relationship with the makers of the coins.

Chris Matthews and Van Taylor

Matthews, Hackett Demolish GOP Candidate

This one was so brutal it almost wasn’t fun to watch. Almost. NBC’s Chris Matthews and antiwar veteran Paul Hackett made mincemeat of Texas GOP congressional candidate Van Taylor, whom they repeatedly chastised for using meaningless talking points. Taylor was more out of his depth than George Bush at a Mensa convention.

Colbert Delivers Vintage Comeback to Antiwar Vet

The ex-Senate candidate and Iraq War vet Paul Hackett asked Stephen Colbert, “Do you really think we’re going to spread democracy with the business end of an M-16?” Colbert’s response was classic. Check it out.

Henry Paulson and President Bush

New Treasury Secretary Channels Paul Krugman

Bush’s new secretary of the Treasury, former Goldman Sachs CEO Henry Paulson, said in his first public remarks since taking office that he recognized the economy was not benefitting all Americans.

  • That’s quite an understatement—as Paul Krugman made abundantly clear in a 2002 N.Y. Times Magazine essay—but for a Bush appointee, it was a hell of an admission.

    Truthdigger of the Week: John Paul Stevens

    Truthdig salutes the 86-year-old Supreme Court justice who wrote the majority opinion in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, which struck down the military tribunals Bush set up to try Guantanamo detainees. But more important, this decision, in the words of a Yale law professor, “effectively undermines the Administration’s strongest claims about Presidential power,” and may constitute the legal framework necessary to halt the more egregious of Bush’s civil liberties-infringing programs—like warrantless wiretapping and holding terrorism suspects without trial.

    Paul Krugman: A Bad Day for Joe Lieberman

    The N.Y. Times columnist writes that the Connecticut senator is in trouble, as evidenced by neophyte challenger Ned Lamont’s strong showing at the state Democratic Party’s nomination convention. Lieberman’s problem: He consistently parrots GOP talking points and has fallen out of touch with Connecticut voters.

    You Mean Jesus Didn’t Have a Bodily Resurrection?

    Interested in a real Paschal Mystery this Easter? How ‘bout this? Why does the Catholic Church insist that Jesus had a bodily resurrection, when Paul clearly says in Corinthians 15:44: “It is sown a physical body, it is raised a spiritual body.
