Wow!  What a good time the Rally for the Republic was.  I arrived on Saturday to do some pre-rally exploring and found the local police-state to be overwhelming, yet friendly.  It was the kind of thing you were warned existed only in evil countries such as the Soviet Union when you were growing up.  Yet here it was, on the streets of Minneapolis in the United States of Amerika.  Cops dressed in military costumes everywhere you looked and in very large numbers.  Creepy.

Monday I ran into libertarian greats such as Angela Keaton and Anthony Gregory. We had lunch and some beers prior to attending the Celebration in Blaine. Good music was heard with Aimee Allen being the highlight of the night with her Ron Paul song. I suspect a good 1,000 – 2,000 were in attendance despite the very odd location. The neocon rag Reason was represented by the human rat himself, David Weigel. He was right in front of me talking to Angela when I wanted to blurt out: “Hey Weigel, are you here to trash Ron Paul again?”. Sure enough: here, here and here.

The after party was held back in Minneapolis at Clubhouse Jäger owned by a Ron Paul supporter. Steve Dore played and hundreds of Ron Paul supporters packed in. I stayed until about 1am hoping Ron Paul would show, but didn’t. I did have the honor of speaking with the founder of the Revolution, Ernie Hancock.  Great guy.  Butler Shaffer was there as well, although I didn’t get a chance to meet him.

On the Glenn Beck show, in early June, Barr said, “Global warming is a myth. And yet it`s being used by the environmental folks, by the internationalists. A lot of the pressure is coming from the United Nations and other countries. Some of which, like China, of course, are pushing the Kyoto Protocol. Why? Because they`re exempt. It`s going to saddle us. And what is McCain doing? He`s out there buying into this global warming, carbon emission cap and trade.”

Now Barr says, “Former Vice President Al Gore and I have met privately to discuss the issue of global warming, and I was pleased and honored that he invited me to attend the ‘We’ Campaign event. Global warming is a reality as most every organization that has studied the matter has concluded, whether conservative-leaning, liberal oriented or independent.”

“There obviously is a role for government,” Barr said.

Barr continues to flip-flop in order to pander to gullible “libertarians”.

Scott Horton has a great new interview with Michael Scheuer on how US foreign policy is al Qaeda’s biggest ally. Only Ron Paul would have worried bin Laden, says Scheuer, former head of the CIA bin Laden Unit.
