Fox News’ Chris Wallace is finally treating Representative Ron Paul with the respect he deserves. Rather than try and paint him as a kook and hitting him with “gotcha” questions, Wallace gives an honest interview and allows Paul to answer his questions.
In track, a gun is fired to signal the start of the race. If a runner leaves the block before the starter fires his pistol, it is called jumping the gun. The Republican race for a Presidential nominee seems to have started already, but I want to caution you about jumping the gun. By that, I mean don’t glom onto the candidate flavor-of-the-month until you have vetted him or her properly.
Despite the best efforts of the mainstream media and the Republican apparatchik to ignore him or paint him as a kook, Representative Ron Paul can win the Republican nomination. The MSM is finally recognizing that Paul’s message of liberty, sound money and ending foreign intervention is resonating with a growing segment of the American electorate.
The United States Department of Agriculture knew a dangerous form of salmonella was present at a Cargill, Inc. turkey plant but did not inform the company until after one person died and 77 others were sickened by the bacteria. Cargill and the USDA announced the recall of ground turkey from the Cargill plant in Springdale, Ark., on Aug. 3.

A woman in South Carolina is facing a jury trial for choosing to decorate her truck with an object that the local police chief believes is obscene. I feel that obscenity laws are like the Federal government’s own proverbial gateway drugs: First it makes obscenity laws, then there is systemic censorship, then the Constitution is being rewritten to leave out the 1st Amendment altogether.
I have a friend who suffers from migraines (not Rep. Michele Bachmann, though I’m sure she’s a delightful person). For years, she sought answers from Conventional Medicine, until she got some unusual advice in an emergency room.
If you have a bag of walnuts sitting in your food pantry, you need to move them quickly. They belong in your medicine cabinet. At least that’s the view of the Food and Drug Administration, which last year sent a warning letter to Diamond Foods, Inc., because the packaging “misbranded” the product, causing them to be drugs.
Some of you have noticed that lately Personal Liberty Digest™ has been difficult to access and slow to respond. Posted comments are taking longer than normal to appear, and sometimes error messages are popping up. We’re aware of the problem, and our technical team is hard at work to solve it.
The War on Terror, at least as a name, is over, but the war on white Americans by the Department of Homeland Security is in full stride. The DHS has targeted Tea Party members, Ron Paul supporters, military veterans and gun owners as potential terrorists and encouraged Americans to spy on each other.
