    You have to find out what Beohner is up to! He is trying to derail Ron Paul from getting the chairman position.

    This reads in part:
    Five GOP leadership aides, speaking anonymously because a decision isn't final, say incoming House Speaker John Boehner has discussed ways to prevent Paul from becoming chairman or to keep him on a tight leash if he does.

    The first wave of fiscally conservative tea party candidates will be part of the next Congress. I think it will take 3 or 4 such "waves", to the point where they have a majority, before real change takes place. Most of the Elephants are still not getting the message, and the Donkeys are beyond redemption as long as progressivism, and not true liberalism, is their guiding ideology.

    BTW, great show, Judge. Nice balance, and you challenged Bolton effectively.

    "National Security" is a euphemism for Totalitarianism.

    Lew Rockwell knows more about what's going on than most people in this country and yet every time he is on he gets about 15 seconds to speak, while we have to listen to liberal bimbos and other guests rudely interrupting him. Get Lew Rockwell on and give him 10 minutes. Let the public learn something instead of hearing a lot of babbling and confusion.l

    bolton aids and abets the enemy by being a neocon.

    he pretty much thinks that as long as we make it a war (now conflated with "security" or "safety") issue, then anything goes. truth, rule of law, constitution be damned.

    what a crook.

    I love this show, but I would like to see less cutting off of other people during the freedom fighters portion. It really derails logical argument and quickly devolves into a war of sound bytes. I believe this does the greatest injustice to the libertarian voice, (which is the most internally consistent to core principles) as the lay viewer may not be able to understand the subtleties of the positions when, as the above commenter pointed out, Mr. Rockwell gets only 15 seconds of elbow room. I love you, Judge N., but please stop allowing Gasparino et. al. shout others down. It is not only rude to the other guests, but it is rude to the viewers.

    Unfortunately, along with the fiscal conservatism, I fear the Tea Party will bring with it, more social repression.

    Does this really surprise anyone?

    I agree with RakeR that Bolton thinks we can justify anything through the governments scare tactics that its for our "security" and "safety". There is a cool blog about liberty that talks about not only the WikiLeaks debate, but other critical areas of liberty that many people just feel comfortable giving away. Check it out: "http://freeradical08.blogspot.com/"
    Let me know what you think!

    Agreed! When Lew interviews someone, he gives them all the time they need to talk.

    This is one reason I hate old media commentary shows. No one gets a coherent thought in. It's constant frustration and confused babbling. I don't care if you have a good put-down; shut up and let the person speak! And they try to cram everything into fifteen seconds. How they think they're accomplishing anything, I don't know.

    I can't stand partisans. They twist and distort things, hold double standards, cherry-pick, are paranoid, use ad-hominems and straw men and think a debate is a verbal fistfight. I am for freedom, not a political party.
