Trygve Olson should be fired as Ron Paul 2012 Campaign Advisor

Our truly beloved leader, Dr. Ron Paul encourages his congressional staff to read www.antiwar.com each morning. The main antiwar.com writer, Justin Raimondo wrote this, this morning: "Can Ron Paul be Tamed? No, but his campaign can" Read it here: http://original.antiwar.com/justin/2012/02/02/can-ron-paul-b...

In the article it is disclosed that Trygve Olson, the "regime change" specialist is an advisor to Ron Paul 2012 PCC. It is pointed out that Olson and Rand Paul have a relationship of mutual learning.

As you should know, as good as Rand is, especially in articulation and speech-making (perhaps better than Ron here), he is no Ron Paul when it comes to consistently Constitutional and liberty-oriented foreign policy as demonstrated here with his vote for the santions on Iran-imposing legislation (an act of war according to Ron), where Rand voted for the Kirk-Menendez amendment on December 1, 2011. Read http://comehomeamerica.wordpress.com/2012/01/23/rand-paul-di... for more perspective on Rand's pro-sanctions vote with 99 other clueless senators on this issue.

Without trying to pit Ron against Rand in anyway, they clearly have black and white different views regarding sanctions on Iran.

Please read the article, vote up this post if you think it's important (it is!), and respond with a post whether you think the "regime change" specialist, Trygve Olson, should be dismissed as an advisor to Ron Paul 2012 PCC.

Chime in on Rand's pro-sanctions views and his mutual "learning" relationship with Trygve Olson as well.

Vote this post up for strategic discussion and potential action contacting the campaign to relieve Olson of his advising role. We KNOW Ron is against sanctions, b/c they are acts of war.

Much feedback please. Bump this!

Rand never had the conviction it takes....

to be a great leader like his father.

The only thing bigger than Rand Paul's ego is the silver platter his Senate seat came on!

Just one fortunate son endorsing another, that's all.

I stopped donating in April when I found out that Benton had given the RNC permission to raise cash for Romney. This led to every local and state GOP headquarters turning into Romney campaign offices.

This will be remembered in history as...

...Ron Paul's fatal flaw...that he was far too trusting and kind to be a politician. He is even too trusting--and oblivious to treason around him-- to be a statesman above his current station.

"Truth is an absolute defense to the charge of paranoia."

You have just called Ron Paul an idiot.

You have just claimed to be smarter and more politically savvy than Dr. Paul.

You have just said that Dr. is a bad Politician.

Just listen to yourself for a second.

You are being a narcissist.

RP supporters are helping bury Ron in the filth of staff he has.

most rp supporters love tate adn olson and benton, and they will run like a pack of drunk herds to give money whenever a crony asks for it.

rp supporters are aware of this crappy stuff, but refuse to speak out about it and infact even go as far as to support it and defend it, which all hurts Ron as they know.

rp's fatal flaw is that he won't engage with libertarians. he will only allow in estab freaks from dnc/gop into his life and office. and of course, ron paved hte way for rand to become co-opted and fall under romney's wing.

really, rp's fatal flaw is that he won't go to his roots, and that is with the libertarian party, and wants to remain strictly under the wings of dnc/gop.


What really concerns me, is

What really concerns me, is that Ron Paul's speech on the floor about Syria was not sent out through emails, it's not even featured on the campaign's website. FOREIGN POLICY is the main reason I support Ron Paul. I will NOT support any candidate if they have an war-hungry foreign policy, regardless if they want to audit the fed.



He should have NEVER been allowed ANYWHERE close to Ron Paul's Presidential Campaign.


Worst Enemy Imaginable.

Look at his Record Of Political Manipulation In So Many Countries!

Wisdom Strategies

No more $$$$

Ron Paul after he wins the nomination, will not get a direct red cent from me till this man is removed. It would also require the removal of Jesse Benton. We need more competent men helping our candidate.

They need to be FIRED.

Not "let go"
Not "services were no longer needed"


Now that there is no money in

Now that there is no money in it (at least not being raised or spent) he might just leave anyway, but I'd like to see him fired before he quits.

It will be interesting

to see where Benton's political career goes next.

where Benton's political career goes next?

Rand Paul, that's who

Preparation through education is less costly than learning through tragedy

Jack Hunter

is riding those coattails too. He used to bash the warmongering agenda but now he's changed his tune so he can ride the big wave with Rand.

SCREW MITT "Flip Flopp'n" ROMNEY!!!

It is Ron Paul or nothing.



another Bump

this is serious.

mY guess is

Benton, Olsen are already gone. They left after the money ran out. It appears Jack Hunter is already working for Romney, and I don't trust Wead as far as I can throw him

PLEASE put this INFO thread on FRONT PAGE

there are many causes for the takedown of the campaign here
put it on the frontpage so people can gather in the info

look at these links too:

Once this occurred, Olsen was in control of the campaign.



WHO is Trygve Olson's DADDY ??



Brucie is Fein for FOREIGN LOYALTY but NOT for Ron Paul

Brucie is Fein for FOREIGN LOYALTY but NOT for Ron Paul
Mr. Fein’s public pedigree makes it fairly easy to spot his overt ties and links. For example: he has been an adjunct scholar with the American Enterprise Institute (AEI). By now I think the majority of Americans know about AEI’s claim to fame:

2- AEI seeks candidates who put Loyalty and Allegiance to Israel above all.


and behind it all is George Soros, multi billionaire and Internationalist Extrodinaire .

Pagans are tolerant by NATURE.


This post has more up votes then almost half of the posts on the front page!!! Why is it not on the front page. Are the moderators pulling an MSM shanninigan?
Are they PICKING AND CHOOSING what's important for us the subscribers?

What the hell is going on here?

The answer is in the silence

beginning to get the picture
Just looked at this
Newest & Top
New | Top | YouTubes | Ron

This probably wont get much attention either:

I was voted down when I questioned Benton's motives when he did the telephone press conference talking about "making deals" w/ mitt.

BTW, Benton blessing the abandonment rule 11 was the eye opener.


FORGET RAND PAUL. We need to figure out how to get Tom Woods into this mix for the next race, if this country doesn't implode before then. I would much rather have Tom Woods running for Pres then Rand. Imagine the debates....Tom Woods Would DESTROY everyone.

i think

that each one of you should write ron paul a letter, using your names and addresses, and tell him that he has very poor judgement in the people that he has working for him in the campaign. let him know what you have found out about olson, benton,(using documented proof) and i am sure that he will take care of the problem. l am sure that he will appreciate your letting him know that his son has betrayed him and his supporters, even tho rand is not your senator, but the senator from kentucky that supports romney,and that his employees are embezzling the money you sent him. and that you suspect benton is using the money to cheat on his wife, because your read it in the national enquirer. have you ever thought that bad mouthing the host, rp, will not get you invited to the party? how old are you guys?


Awwwwww an attempt at

Awwwwww an attempt at sarcasm(squeezes cheeks) how 'cute'.

Dear Ron Paul,

You have to start putting established patriots LIKE YOURSELF into leadership positions around you.

This disaster with your son endorsing the antithesis of everything you and we stand for is the final fruit of your dangerous willingness just to trust people. Not everyone is honest and integrity filled.

This Olson character must go, and Jesse Benton must be demoted.

Thank you!

Thank you!

Why are these issues not

Why are these issues not being mentioned on the front page of the daily paul?

Trygve Olson & Jesse Benton OUT NOW or We will see a great divide.
Chose a side. UP or DOWN to fire infiltrators at the top.
the r3volution may be lost to the establishment, just like what happened to the "Tea Party".
Off to do more research
I'll be back later to see how many here become aware of this.
I'll bet Alex will be all over this today @ 4pm cst, just like Adam the Man.

RP Inner Circle

Hopefully you did a lot of research on this guy, Olson. . .he came fresh from the John "I Want To Be At War For 100 Years" McCain campaign. (Read his background: http://www.linkedin.com/pub/trygve-olson/14/431/82a)

Olson was brought to Ron Paul's camp via Jesse (oh my god when are they going to kick him OUT?!!) Benton, via Rand Paul's campaign. That's after Jesse ran in and sacked Rand's campaign chair, did a lot of spin, and settled down the masses - from Rand Paul's slippery tongue getting him into trouble.

Did everyone read this about Jesse, from 2008? http://www.dailypaul.com/26755/jesse-bentons-second-choice-i...

In case you missed it - Bruce Fein, a Ron Paul insider, is also a piece of work: http://www.boilingfrogspost.com/2011/08/30/the-greatest-plot...
The Ron Paul campaign announcing him: http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20110823006296/en

In my personal estimation, Rand Paul is an arrogant, self-aggrandizing, pompous arse. He is riding the wave of his Father while not adhering to his Father's counsel and/or following his good example. Rand exhibits a minimal amount of the awesome character Ron Paul has demonstrated for 30 years.

This is not the first time in history that a good mans son has chosen his own path: "William Franklin: The son of Benjamin Franklin, William Franklin served as Royal Governor of New Jersey during the critical years between 1762 and 1776. An ardent Loyalist, William split with his father over their political differences in the early days of the Revolution, and after enduring two years of imprisonment, became a leader in the Loyalist cause. He settled in London in 1782, where he worked as an agent for Loyalist claims."

The best thing that can happen to Rand would be to first try to get his head removed from his posterior. Secondly would be for him to be defeated in the next election. Maybe then he would shake off his haughtiness.

Aside from that - Jesse Benton is behind most of this. . .he saw opportunity (from 2008 http://www.linkedin.com/pub/trygve-olson/14/431/82a) and seized upon it. . .and made a huge mess of everything. A bunch of unseasoned, uncommitted co-opters. . .such a shame.

The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. ~Thomas Jefferson

“It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie...the greatest enemy of the State.” ~Joseph Goebbels



this is a useful comment

..but i will vote it down because of the "removing head from the posterior".

I am sure such an image and idea would make Ron Paul very sad. Why this lynching? - it is innocent until proven guilty.

Ron Paul ... forever.

I really wish Ron Paul had Tom Woods by his side.

Through it all.

Trygve Olson is Jesse Bentons Alter Ego

If anyone is familiar with the book Philip Dru: Administrator by
Edward Mandell House you will immediately see the glaring similarity.
