Rapid Response Team Needed!

Big Name Journalists Lined-Up To Attack Ron Paul

Bill Schneider used to appear all the time on CNN, and on other TV Networks, as the "Election Expert" and Statistition for each and every election cycle.

I don't know how much he is on TV anymore, but they've trotted out his excellance now to pillory Ron Paul in a brand new Huffington Post article at: Ron Paul Will Never Be President

Here are some excerpts:

Ron Paul is something of a crank with extreme anti-government views. He wants to abolish the Federal Reserve system. And the federal income tax. And cut spending by one trillion dollars in the first year. And end all foreign aid (including aid to Israel). And bring home all U.S. forces stationed overseas.

He dismisses a nuclear-armed Iran as a threat to the U.S. He has said he would not have voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964. In 2007, he was the only Member of the House of Representatives to vote against creating a National Archives exhibit on slavery and Reconstruction. He was also the only Member to vote against giving a Congressional Gold Medal to Pope John Paul II, Rosa Parks, the Dalai Lama and Mother Teresa.

In the 1980s and 1990s, Paul published newsletters that included inflammatory contributions by white supremacists, anti-Zionists and far right extremists. The newsletters bore his name -- The Ron Paul Political Report, The Ron Paul Survival Report.

Paul ran for President in 1988 -- 24 years ago! -- as the candidate of the Libertarian Party. He got less than one half of one percent of the vote.

At age 76, he is never going to be President of the United States.

He may be tapping into a long tradition of Midwestern isolationism. In the 1930s, the Midwest was a hotbed of American First sentiment opposed to U.S. involvement in World War II (hint..hint). That sentiment never entirely died on the right. More recently, it has been joined by left-wing antiwar sentiment generated by Vietnam and Iraq. That strain of isolationism horrifies mainstream conservatives.

If Paul wins Iowa, he is unlikely to go much farther. The Republican establishment will stop him.


So Ron Paul is a dangerous pro-Hitler, anti-Israel, anti-government, anti-American, Isolationist, and Racist-White-Supremacist, and also a Crank! -- who will never be President regardless of whatever the hell happens in Iowa (who cares) ... that's the narrative here. Got it?

Say it enough times, and people will believe it.

The Ron Paul Campaign had better be prepared for this type of high-profile thrashing and ugly journalism, and have a plan in place to retake control of the narrative. It is serious stuff, and it requires a public counter-attack.

If they don't his Campaign will be wiped out.

. Mike Dukakis thought voters would never be duped by over-the-top negative attacks (by Bush I) and look what happened.
. John Kerry thought voters would never believe the swift-boat lies about his Vietnam record (Bush II) and look what happened.
. And when Bill Clinton defeated Bush in 1992, he had a Rapid Response Team setup to deal with all the potential attacks on a daily basis coming from Bush I. That's how he overcame the various smears (draft dodger, anti-american, unpatriotic, flag-burner, etc.). It didn't work, because Clinton re-took control the narrative before any political damage occurred. This is what you must do to survive.

Ron Paul and his campaign better recognize that this stuff is quite serious, and he cannot let the U.S. CIA-News Media define who he is.

Interestingly, Jonah Goldberg used to work for Bill Schneider.

"The Republican establishment will stop him. "

The same Republican establishment that demands we send our boys to die in order to force "democracy" down the throats of Middle Easterners now ADMITS they will stoop however low is necessary to SUBVERT that same "democracy" here at home?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

They are pro-democracy only as long as it turns out how they want! That is NOT democratic at all!

my comment

Schneider? Is that you? I couldn't see your face. You are stooping so low... It's a sad way to end your career... as a mercinary for the corrupt political class Republicrat Duopoly.
Hey Schneider? Do me a favor, Google this;

Republicans don't read huffpo

Dont worry and don't click

Kinda my thoughts

Everything from Huffpo, mediamatters, colbert/stewart, maddow, kucinich, etc etc etc... if I were to bring any of that stuff up at Republican meetings it's a deal killer. I don't even read/listen to them much... gotta listen to Rush, Hannity, Foxnews, etc...

Only if I were actively trying to Harm his chances getting the (R) nomination would I refer to those sources in my Republican circles.

The delegates, chairmen, committeemen I talk to... they will have no clue this story even exsists.

It's all 100% foreign policy so far with them as far as Dr. Paul is concerned.

my anecdoteal observation

The 'establishment' Republicans that took over the party ...

have No principles to back them up. They are desperate now that the controlled media is being exposed for what it is.

Truth and Liberty always wins in the end.


"Truth and Liberty" haven't Won in over 200 years

We live under a Military Dictatorship with controlled Media, and controlled Elections, that is owned and operated by International Central Bank Monopolists and Gangsters.

We have seen no truth and no liberty in the last couple-hundred years.

Ron Paul DOES have a plan to deal with this...

..."Just tell the truth."

Aside from that, I'm guessing that, after an Iowa win, Ron Paul will announce a press conference for Thursday in NH, where he'll give a lengthy, detailed prepared statement, and then answer all questions.

He'll then post the statement and Q/A on his website, and be done with it.

Then he'll proceed to kick ass in the two debates prior to NH.

Then he'll win NH.

It'll be clear sailing from there.

I love the way they are

I love the way they are trying to wipe Ron's supporters off the map by their big mouths. They think by saying so it will happen? NOOOO because a whole LOT of us are putting our perception in the opposite direction. For every one that says that there are 10 saying he will win and they are going to vote for him. This is ridiculous. At least last time they were not as afraid of him like they are now, so there was not as much of this. Everytime they call Ron's ideas "nuts" they are demeaning his supporters. I am not sure they realize how many enemies they are making.

The Controlled Media has shaped the minds of Americans for ...

a long time. If the truth could be bent, covered up to accomplish an agenda it was.

That is changing. I'm almost 60 and now understand why America has fallen even though my Conservative candidates won most of the time here in Texas.

The window of truth is now Open and the tyranny that has been here for decades is being exposed.

They are ugly aren't they.


Do NOT underestimate the power of the U.S. News Media

The type of smears that they are throwing at him now will destroy all his momentum.

This is all about winning over new voters, and the uninformed voter.

Silence in the face of these attacks is not the answer, and Ron Paul needs to get control of this stuff ...very quickly!

Rapid Response Team

Does Ron Paul have one?

It's us baby!

I can understand not giving these people traffic and attention, but on the other hand, it really makes an impact on those reading threads to see the shear number of Paul supporters making cogent arguments using real facts.

It's kind of like the padded wall in their echo chamber.
