After his 13-hour filibuster stunt on the senate floor Wednesday, Kentucky senator Rand Paul back in the national spotlight and admits to a possible presidential run.
Senator Paul told Politico.com he hasn't made any decision yet and won't until sometime in 2014.
Paul says the Republican Party needs a change if they want to appeal to voters outside of its conservative base.
Paul also discussed the negative effects running a campaign would have on his family and he said that could be a determining factor on whether he runs or not.
"You know when I ran for the senate we didn't realize how difficult it would be on the family." Paul said. "There were so many nights my wife was home crying at the abuse that we got and some of it you really take personally."
Paul made headlines when he held a 13-hour filibuster in order to block the confirmation of President Barack Obama's pick to head the CIA.
Paul's supporters say this move will help him because it shows he can stand his ground.
On this live Sunday edition, Alex returns from a week of vacation with a lot on his mind, including the huge signs of awakening happening in this country, with Sen. Rand Paul making a bold move this week in filibustering Brennan's nomination and objecting to extrajudicial drones now threatening American lives and liberties. Meanwhile Afghan President Karzai's latest comments are further admission that the U.S. is sponsoring terrorism, including groups like the Taliban, to justify it's continued occupations at home and abroad. Incredible attacks on the 2nd Amendment are underway, with states now passing draconian legislation restricting firearms, while a new patsy is being crafted to blame the liberty movement for new terror attacks ahead of manufactured financial collapse and social unrest.
Inside The Bermuda Triangle
A Never Before Published Theory of the Bermuda Triangle Phenomenon by Bruce Gernon
Host: George Noory
Guests: Bruce Gernon, David Pares
George Noory was joined by professor David Pares, who has been researching Electronic Fog and Linear Displacement of aircraft, also known as Local Space Warps, as well as Bermuda Triangle researcher Bruce Gernon, who experienced just such an event inside the Triangle. "He is the first one to try this," Pares said of Gernon's space warp, "not on purpose, only to try and save his life."
Gernon shared his tale of flying through a space warp inside the infamous esoteric zone. According to him, his plane got caught in a storm that wrapped around the craft. This unique weather effect was symmetrical in shape and when he tried to fly beneath it, the storm was resting on the surface of the ocean. After trying to fly around of it, he realized that "this storm was all connected and I was trapped inside the center of it." Eventually, he flew into a tunnel which had developed in the storm. When he emerged from the tunnel, he felt a "strange sensation" of weightlessness and "hydroplaning forward" into a "gray electronic fog." Soon thereafter, the fog dissipated and Gernon had traveled 100 miles in a little over three minutes.
Based on his research, Pares theorized on what happened during Gernon's flight. He put forth the idea that when Gernon flew into the tunnel, it harnessed the massive amount of power contained in the thunderstorms that surrounded the plane. As a result of this tremendous energy, Pares suggested, "the fabric of space in front of his craft is compressed and, in the back, it's expanding," pushing the plane over a great distance in a small amount of time. He clarified that Gernon did not experience time travel, because, when he touched down, the clocks in the plane matched those at the runway. Should this effect be able to be harnessed, Pares said, it could revolutionize travel and "we're going to become a space faring world."
It is perhaps America’s most unsafe airport. Despite being the launching point for one of the planes hijacked on 9/11 — Flight 93, which crashed in Pennsylvania — Newark Airport has had numerous security violations since. The latest: a fake bomb that made it past Transportation Security Administration officers. Here, a Newark TSA screener who recently left the agency tells how silly policies and lazy workers do little to stop real threats:
A LOT of what we do is make-believe.
I’ve had to screen small children and explain to their parents I had no choice but to “check” them. I would only place my hands on their arms and bottom half of their legs, and the entire “pat-down” lasted 10 seconds. This goes completely against TSA procedure.
Because the cameras are recording our every move, we have to do something. If someone isn’t checked or even screened properly, the entire terminal would shut down, as this constitutes a security breach.

The Kolbrin Prophecies
Host: Ian Punnett
Guests: Glenn Kimball
Expert in ancient manuscripts, Glenn Kimball, discussed the origin as well as the stories and dire prophecies of The Kolbrin, an anthology of ancient wisdom books found in the Glastonbury Abbey during the 12th century.
The documents were written during the intertestamental period, Kimball explained, and its final form was intact by the beginning of the second century A.D. He said The Kolbrin was used as a textbook in religious schools throughout Great Britain and taught all the way up to the time of the Crusades. The Knights Templar eventually took possession of these documents (to protect them from the likes of King Edward I of England) and redacted The Kolbrin to reflect their point of view, Kimball noted.
Kimball shared several stories from The Kolbrin, including its account of Creation, Adam and Eve, and the Exodus. He also talked about a potential threat to Earth from 'The Destroyer,' a large spherical planetoid in orbit around the Sun. Kimball said The Kolbrin provides a firsthand, journalistic description of the devastation caused the last time this celestial body approached our planet.
Money need to be store of value. Then it cuts away to a bank/banker selling you money at interest. Any intelligent being can see that since the inception of Modern Money Mechanics and the FED Reserve system money has done nothing but lose it's value. It is this system and the exploitative process thereof that is the problem. CENTRAL BANKERS and their system are the problem, not money itself. All else is a consequence of the concealment of the true nature of money - a promise to pay each other, not a bank, which is merely a printer/publisher of these tokens/representations of our labour and production we have to each other.
Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky has ended his filibuster after nearly 13 hours. Paul was blocking the Senate confirmation vote of John Brennan, President Obama's pick to head the CIA, due to his concerns about unmanned drones.
Andrew Sullivan Takes Shot At Catholic Church, Declares Many Cardinals Are Secretly Gay
On the Chris Matthews Show Daily Dish publisher Andrew Sullivan declared that many of the cardinals picking the next pope are gay and that gay marriage will not be a factor in their voting. Matthews opened the segment pointing to a poll showing a majority of American Catholics now support gay marriage. Some of the panelists speculated that this has more to do with the libertarian streak of the country.
"The pervasive things Americans believe is libertarianism. 'Don't Tread On Me' is our national, motto," said Washington Post columnist David Ignatius.
CNN's Gloria Borger and The Washington Post's Kathleen Parker both agreed that it had more to do with changing demographics and a greater acceptance of gays and lesbians among young people.
Matthews asked Sullivan if these changing sentiments among lay Catholics will have an impact on the selection of the next pope.
Sullivan said no and then added that many of the cardinals are actually gay, prompting chuckles from some of the panelists off screen.
"There are so many gays electing the next Pope that who knows whether that would happen," said Sullivan, talking about a topic he has written about before.
"You mean the Cardinals?" a startled Matthews interrupted.
"Yes," Sullivan answered.
Sullivan noted that the the only religious group in the United States that still opposes gay marriage in large numbers is white evangelical Christians. Sullivan contended that continued opposition to gay marriage by evangelicals will kill them off the way it has hurt the Catholic Church.
Earlier this month Sullivan speculated that Pope Benedict XVI was in a gay relationship with one of his assistants.
Spying drones threaten US civil liberties: Gareth Porter , An analyst says the people pushing spy drones in the US with no accountability in their policy are a threat to the civil liberties or Americans. In the background of this several US states are pushing a Bill to restrict spy drones from spying on American citizens. Drones currently conduct surveillance on Americans and properties and seemingly with no accountability. In other countries the drone culture of Obama has advanced to the use of assassination drones currently in Somalia, Yemen and Pakistan. The US is not officially at war with any of these countries and Western mainstream media does an effective job of hiding the devastation and illegalities of these operations from their public. Figures show that civilians are the main targets or at least the main victims with 9 out of every 10 deaths said to be innocent men, women and children.
Our guests today are Phil Armstrong, Brenda Johnson and Christine Weick. They are all hosts on the Prophecy Zone Radio Network founded by Phil Armstrong. We are talking about the Antichrist, wars and rumors of wars, what are the signs of the end times, Islam and Apostasy in the church
Dumbing Down Children in the Education System and the Mass Media Programming of America. Your Government is Getting Exactly What It's Paying For .Blaming it all on the government is not only pointless but irresponsible. People who blame government for all this crap don't want to take credit for their own failure as a human being. Seriously people look in the mirror first before you blame government. Let's take a look at reality for a sec. All of this is connect to the severe lack of morality, ethics, judgement, conviction, and common sense which are not taught in a classroom. That stuff is taught at home. Better education would change nothing. Also all the crap on TV is driven by money. Stupid reality TV shows plague the air waves because the majority of people want to watch it, not because it's being shoved down their throats in order to dumb them down
