  • Talking to Paul supporters about the US-Israel alliance

    By Shmuel Rosner

    January 3, 2012 | 4:57 am

    First one must say that they were all very courteous and nice. If Ron Paul supporters – today we can start calling them voters – bear any grudge against Israel, for being such an annoying country, or for Israelis, for being so needy and apprehensive, or for anyone who might be...

    December 29, 2011 | 12:10 pm

    Two Republican presidential candidates said they would vote for Rep. Ron Paul if he wins the GOP nomination.

    Mitt Romney, considered a frontrunner, and Rick Santorum, now undergoing a late surge in polls in Iowa, both told CNN in recent days that they would vote for Paul if he were...

  • Chasing Paul in Iowa, for old times sake

    By Shmuel Rosner

    December 29, 2011 | 12:07 pm

    On the airplane that is taking me from New York to Iowa for a week of my favorite pastime – watching American politics in action – I’m reminded of a similar visit, four years ago almost to the day. I’m taking a look at the Iowa polls and am pondering the possibility that Ron Paul...

  • Gingrich questions Ron Paul about racist newsletters

    December 23, 2011 | 2:48 pm

    Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich on Friday urged rival Ron Paul to explain his links to newsletters two decades ago that carried the Texas congressman’s name and contained racist, anti-homosexual and anti-Israel rants.

    “I think that Congressman Paul has to explain his...

  • Ron Paul 1993 appeal letter warns of ‘race war,’ assails ‘Israeli lobby’

    December 23, 2011 | 1:33 pm

    A 1993 subscription letter appearing above Ron Paul’s signature said the “Israeli lobby plays Congress like a cheap harmonica,” warned of a “race war” and said there was a gay-led cover up of AIDS.

    The letter appealed for subscriptions to Paul’s newsletter at the time, which...

  • Jewish voters and the Ron Paul effect

    By Shmuel Rosner

    December 23, 2011 | 1:57 am

    What can they say about Paul?

    What happens to Jewish Republicans, or to Jews who might consider voting Republican if Ron Paul takes Iowa - not an impossible scenario according to current polling. What happens to the Obama-bad-for-Israel Republican theme if Paul becomes the leading...

  • Ron Paul, The Media is Waking Up—Better Late Than Never

    By  David A. Lehrer

    December 21, 2011 | 5:09 pm

    We are nearly a year out from the next presidential election and there have been about a dozen Republican debates——more than enough time for the 24/7 news cycle and voracious cable news channels to inspect, examine and scour each candidate for every present and former wart. The...

  • Opinion: What country commits suicide?

    November 29, 2011 | 11:47 am

    The drums of war with Iran will be beating increasingly loudly in the three months leading up to AIPAC’s policy conference early next March. The Republican candidates for president (with the exception of Texas Rep. Ron Paul) will try to outdo each other in professing devotion to...

  • Opinion: Keeping up with the Kandidates

    By Marty Kaplan

    November 14, 2011 | 10:08 am

    “Are you not entertained?”

    That was Jon Stewart’s response to Rick Perry’s brain freeze.  He said it twice, maniacally.  “Are you not entertained?”  Stewart’s right about what’s happening.  America is on track for the most amusing apocalypse ever.  Things may be going to...

  • Ron Paul is off his rocker about Iran!

    By Karmel Melamed

    November 6, 2011 | 4:00 pm

    Over the past year there have been a host of American talking heads and politicians who have opined about Iran from both sides of the political spectrum, saying some of the most ridiculous garbage I have ever heard in my life. Yet today the comments made by Republican presidential...

  • Paul won’t run for House again

    July 13, 2011 | 10:10 am

    Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), one of the most consistent opponents of pro-Israel legislation, said he will not run again as a congressman.

    “I have decided not to seek re-election to Congress,” Paul, 75, said Tuesday on his Twitter account.

    He linked to a story in The Facts, a Texas news...

    The Republican Jewish Coalition expressed its concern about reports that Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) is planning a third bid for the GOP presidential nomination.

  • If Web hits were votes, the election will be between Baruch Obama and Ron Paul

    By The Web Guy

    January 31, 2008 | 10:47 pm

    Based on the number of visitors to our election stories today, look for a November contest between Democrat Baruch Obama and Republican Ron Paul.

    Four times as many people visited the Paul profile as checked out a pro-Obama pitch, the next most popular story.

    But web hits aren’t votes, thankfully. 

    I don’t think America is ready for the gold standard and other Flat Earth ideas.

    America likes humps.  Also, Israel.

    Jim Perry, a 22-year-old Libertarian, made a name for himself in college when, shortly after moving to New Hampshire to live free or die, he strapped a gun to his side and marched into a local Borders book store and proceeded to rip up a copy of his Massachusetts income tax return.
  • Ron Paul: Maybe ‘93 WTC attack was Mossad

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    January 9, 2008 | 8:43 am

    No one ever claimed Ron Paul was mainstream. But, sheesh, look what The New Republic found in his old newsletters:

    Martin Luther King Jr. earned special ire from Paul’s newsletters, which attacked the civil rights leader frequently, often to justify opposition to the federal holiday...

  • Ron Paul won’t return neo-Nazi donation

    Now it’s really hard to believe there actually is a group called Jews for Ron Paul.

  • The Jews for Ron Paul

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    November 16, 2007 | 12:14 am

    I do not understand why Ron Paul is so popular on the Internet, though I did once find him to be worth a good quote. Anyway, JTA has a story out about the few Jews backing the maverick Republican running for president. (That’s Ron Paul, not Crazy Rudy.)

    Paul’s candidacy was dismissed...

    Clinton Backs Israel Attack on Syria

    U.S. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) backed what she said was an Israeli attack on a Syrian nuclear target. "What we think we know is that with North Korean help, financial and technical and material, the Syrians apparently were putting...
