This just made my day!

I was sooo steaming mad yesterday I could barely think straight. I know this kind of disrespect was commonplace last election but I thought we had come a long way, apparently not. What a relief, this video clip finally made me laugh and cheer up a bit.

What is great about this is

that more people probably watch Jon Stewart than most of the MSM outlets.


I think the comment by the CCN reporter about Palin and Paul violates CNN's FCC broadcast license. I think we file a complaint with the FCC (I know not very "libertarian," but sometimes the devil comes in useful).

I'm no experts but a violation could lead to a million dollar fine? Hey, let's give CNN and their miscreant reporter a FCC headache.

How does one go about filing a complaint?

Plano TX

Yeah that guy.

Really pissed me off.

We have to step up our efforts and take every one of them down, one at a time. Enough is enough.

MSM is scripted

Main Stream Media are conniving to shut down Ron Paul supporters. They are indeed intimidated and afraid. Ron stands for real peace, liberty, justice and sound money. Jon clearly shows it eloquently. I mean he's the only one doing real journalism on TV.

"When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty."

I can see it now...

New movie poster photoshops:

Liberty's Patient Zero!

The 13th Floor President! (ala the 13th Warrior or the 13th Floor... or both)

This is amazing.

Just made my day. This and the release of the new ad just got me so pumped.

"We don't need a Department of Energy; we need a Department of Freedom" - RP
"We need to defend liberty.. and liberty!" - RP

The John Stewart video just

The John Stewart video just made front page of the Drudge Report. This thing is going viral!


It may be time to show our displeasure with the MSM by starting an organized writing campaign to one or more of their sponsors. This lack of objective coverage is shameful and deserves to be brought to the attention of the businesses who enable it.

Beautiful Job Jon, you said

Beautiful Job Jon, you said what Im thinking.


just sent comedy central an email thanking Jon for his expose on the lies were being fed again.

"Politics ought to be the part-time profession of every citizen who would protect the rights and privileges of free men."

Dwight D. Eisenhower

The 13th floor of a hotel...

perfect metaphor.

Glad to see someone calling out the prostituted MSM.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
Ron Paul - The Revolution

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

I submitted this to Drudge last night...

AND HE POSTED IT!!!!! Go to the Drudge report and see for yourself! Thanks Matt!


Thank you.

I send lots of stuff to Drudge but only had success 2 or 3 times.

last night Jon's Facebook

last night Jon's Facebook page was full of thank you's and comments, this morning it looks like his wall has been scrubbed clean... is Jon getting his blowback from the MSM already??

Thank you, thank you Jon

Thank you, thank you Jon Stewart!

Greatest video ever !!!





By Winning

The caucuses, primaries, an conventions. By becoming a ton Paul delegate.

WHAT a GREAT, principled report by Stewart

He really put the MSM in their place. WOW!!! I didn't expect this one to be SO GOOD!!!!

Interestingly, yesterday Lew Rockwell predicted that the media blackout would BACKFIRE on them. I think Jon Stewart just started the backfire!

Thomas Jefferson: “Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever."

Viva La Revolucion!

Rush Limbaugh

Just made a comment regurgitating verbatim the "Top Tier" speal.

You know - I don't think I've ever heard Rush regurgitate so exactly the talking points before - but you know - I just realized - they don't have any choice but to do this.

Because he is polling so consistently they are forced to talk about the remaining candidates only and this is a huge victory. Jon Stewart just cut them off at the knees and drove a huge stake through little game.

Politico is being forced to run stories on him now. He's all over their front page.

I wrote to Jon:

Many thanks for showing the truth of how the media ignores an honest statesman (Ron Paul) who speaks nothing but truth and commonsense. I hope Jon's producers approve, and more folks like Jon will "stick their necks" out in this battle for freedom and peace. “We must, indeed, all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately", as Ben Franklin said!

"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a rEVOLution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford

Wouldn't it be funny...

....if Jon Stewart was the one that "won" us the nomination?
How convenient would it be if RP happened to be on The Daily Show in the next few days to discuss this. Everyone loves the underdog, the "forgotten" one (Santorum was trying to play off of this)

Question is....

How do we make this happen?

Glad everyone loves me!


Go underdog Ron!

"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a rEVOLution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford


Well played underdog, well played

Ron Paul

has not been ignored "for weeks", he has been ignored for years. IMO

Prepare & Share the Message of Freedom through Positive-Peaceful-Activism.

True, but

he was getting at least SOME coverage during the whole debt ceiling nonsense.

Someone else mentioned that Stewart's Facebook page was scrubbed of RP comments...but I just checked and saw a TON of them. Either you guys work fast or FB glitched from the overabundance of comments (it happens on YT occasionally).

A signature used to be here!


I wish we could all meet up and go to NYC... march to the front doors of the news channels with megaphones.

Watch Stewart almost every

Watch Stewart almost every night. Got so fired up when this came on I woke up my 11 year old. Hey, it's summer, he can sleep late today.

10-15 million more voters need to believe in non-interventionism (liberty) at home and abroad to change America. Minds changed on Syria. Minds changing on privacy. "Printing money" is part of the dialogue. Win minds through focus, strategy.

The iley show

is supposed to be a comedy program but it is closer to the facts and news than any of the MSM.. Fair and balanced, yeah, right,keep up the bad reporting FOX,MSNBC,ABC,CBS,NBC,CNN>


I don't know why I'm surprised by this but to see it put together like that is striking to say the least. It really puts into perspective what we're up against.

I'm pissed... and energized!
