Doug Wead: Don't Want My Nephew Dying over Bush Family Feud! & Why MSM Stopped Rabidly Smearing RP!

All of the following videos were taken on Feb. 1st, 2012 at Fetzer Center, Western Michigan University:

WHY and HOW Doug evolved into a Ron Paul supporter: I didn't want my Nephew dying over a Bush Family Blood Feud.

Doug also gives an excellent 1st hand account of how corrupt corporatist lobbying works at Executive Branch level: mainly how McDonald's got MILLIONS in subsidies and bailouts. While he doesn't say them by name, who he's referring to IS MickyD's is easily verifiable as they recently got bailed out by the FED. On a sidenote, for The Doc's own health sakes, while saving $ on the campaign trail is good, but I truly hope he'd stop eating at McDonald's!

Doug knows intimately the details of such lobbying as he was a senior adviser and campaign debate coach for Georg Herbert Walker Bush. He knows directly from 1st person experience, what he speaks of.

Most importantly, Doug lays out WHY the MSM suddenly stopped rabidly going after Dr. Paul on the Newsletters: Black family members of the victims of drugwar and truly racist, completely biased against poor minorities who suffer the most under our 'Judicial' system, actually en masse, without any organization, started writing and emailing MSM, and calling them out to DEFEND Dr. Paul and his proposed Anti-Drugwar policies!

It's become a cliche here, to a certain extent, and not to say, 'hey let's hang up the spurs,' but in a very REAL sense, we truly have ALREADY WON!

The Doc and We've done what no other modern political movement has been able to do: TRULY change hearts and minds of the citizenry, in an Intellectual Revolution, and inspired them to take the initiative and get involved!

Also being the master communicator that Doug his, he pretty much summed it all up in simple words what I've been telling those around me about the REAL point of a non-interventionist foreign policy, for a long time: "Pride of Ownership."

Just as in any individual's own lives, when one learns or earns something on their own, there's always a resultant "Pride of Ownership." You've earned that skill. You've earned that knowledge. And no one is gonna be able to take that away from you, even by force. It is yours forever, and because of the manner in how you acquired it, you value it more. You don't owe anyone, you don't feel obligated to pay back anyone for it. It really is ALL yours.

Now a Great Mentor would inspire you to seek knowledge and OWN it, NOT be spoon fed it: which is always the mindset of a insecure control-freak authoritarians.

Why "insecure?"

Because when one incessantly tries to convince or force others, or WANTS others to believe that they NEED him, to be worthy, to survive, to succeed, etc. THAT is a precise characteristic of an insecure person.

Because they themselves are needy, they want you to feel like you need him, too. Same dynamic as the one in an abusive relationship, aka a citizen's 'relationship' with their Govt.

Yes, the Govt is the WifeBeater and the gullible citizenry are those who continue to rationalize a Stockholm Syndrome by telling themselves "he beats me because he loves me."

Frankly, the three joker RINO candidates are exactly that.

But the same extends to our foreign policy, too.

Most cultures go through internal tribal infighting that over time grow to be partisan to city-states bickering over personalities and resources. Now there are always typically a time frame in which those feuds either get resolved or settle down enough where each side can just tolerate each other enough to live on and not constantly try to kill each other.

Well, introduce a foreign power into their thousands of yrs old feud, even IF in the unlikely scenario in which an outsider helps them resolve the feud, not as a broker but as an active financier and arm one faction vs. another, even when the bombs stop dropping, those feuding parties NEVER truly get to OWN their independence. They merely become vassal States, like Japan, Germany, S. Korea, and Israel. And, are simply left arguing over what coulda shoulda happened without outside influence.

"Pride of Ownership" is precisely what the Doc has been saying, and Doug so masterfully articulated in that video.

Mr. Wead, if you're reading, I for one, and I know many here consider ourselves lucky to have you on our side.

So, thank you Doug.

And keep "killing them with kindness." Your disarmingly charming smile as you gently slay with your common sense tome, is a DeathRay against your unsuspecting foes.o)

Doug Wead Full Speech Ron Paul Campaign Feb. 1, 2012

Although this is not an official campaign post, I as a Ron Paul campaign volunteer and supporter remember my decision.
I held the value of a few hours of my time in one hand. I held the future of my children, nay, my progeny, in the other...

==========================================

This presentation, and where it took place is what Doug meant in MSDNC's Alex Witt interview, when he was referring to the 'right' counties that local MI R3VOL ARE intentionally, strategically targeting, regardless of the Doc's poll numbers in MI.

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

Upon Maine Caucus results,

along with the requisite GOP party establishment's shenanigans, in terms of cancelling caucuses, deciding not to count the 20% or so counties left who have not yet participated, without notifying them, to voiding ballots, and outright fraud in general, nevertheless, we're gonna WIN what really counts: the Delegates.

Be that as it may, it is time one should be reminded WHY we're all doing this.

Of course, many of you got here via various path, and for various personal reasons. But I hope if there are a few things that do bind us all, is all our core conviction that while we'll never agree on everything as human beings, we CAN however agree on the purest acceptance of the Constitution for starters, to more fundamentally, to leave each other alone, not impose our will via initiation of force, as one it is immoral, but even at a more pedestrian sense, it simply does not work in the long run. And, as the most pertinent issue of the day. We do so to STOP all the killings, the murders, the tortures, the secret and indefinite detentions, the rapes, the humiliation, the human indignity institutionalized by the State at all levels.

Doug simplifies it all, in the best way that he's been known to do.

Please, if you have not watched this, I implore you to watch these videos.

And spread them.

Thank you.

Great Stuff!

Thanks for posting.

That Romney $1.00 donation story is unbelievable.

And shows the disingenuous nature of Romney himself.

The rat just wants power - ANY way he can get it.

I honestly think Gingrich is less of a liar then Romney.

But of course, that isn't saying much.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

LOL

looks like Mutt Wrongney's bumped the scheme up to $5!

Guess even $1 is tool much of a loss, even for Mutt.

He quoted Doug wrong. Doug

He quoted Doug wrong. Doug said it was a subsidy, not a bailout.

a "subsidy" IS a BailOut

with a regularly scheduled payment plan to the subsidy receiver.

let's get real.

PS I never quoted Doug as saying "subsidy" those are my descriptions, not his.

My short reply was meant for

My short reply was meant for helping RiverRun and not a critism of your comment.

If I were going to google it, I would include the terms tarrif, subsidy, bailout, loan, and any other similar term. It all boils down to the same thing in the end, so I understood where you were coming from . . . I thought I would send a QUICK help to River Run. And since it was quick, I incorrectly said that you quoted Doug - sorry. :)

I have made no such claim. I

I have made no such claim. I was commenting on the original post.

Brilliant

It is so enjoyable to hear Doug speak. Great insider stories. Brilliant folksy style. He's learn a lot from the good, incorruptible Dr. Paul. Loved it. "I’ve worked for 7 presidents, but I sleep better at night working for Ron Paul." Doug Wead

The smears haven't stopped and nothing's changed.

Stopped if obviously too

Stopped if obviously too final, but he is trying to make a point and not an accurate observation.

I don't watch TV, so all I'm going by is interviews I see with Ron Paul. With those, I see no mention anymore. What have you seen?

I Just LOVED The Reference

To the Stockholm Syndrome...LOL!...wife beatings? LOL!

Thanks to that comment I'm reminiscing about the days of Colonel Cinque,Patti Hearst and the Symbyonese Liberation Army that held her captive many days while a Nation watched & waited.

Wonder if that's why so many Dems hang onto Obama.

At least Patti Hearst went on to marry a bodyguard (ex-cop)

yup, an entire nation

it's no secret why the Ruling Class spends 90% of their effort, time, and currency all on ways of propagandizing, which essentially is brainwashing a pliable populace to 'police each other,' as they are a few, we are a many.

"Who will the American people cling to in the days to come?"

hopefully themselves, individually.

well... ok, so that's overly optimistic, perhaps when there's a mass 300 million instantaneous brain transplant. lol

Damn it I didn't realize Doug was scheduled to speak at Western this past Wed, I would have driven down from Grand Rapids to attend the lecture ... anyway thank you for posting the videos!

I don't know how many from the official campaign

sorta 'man the fort' and others are available as 'surrogate communicators' on the campaign trail, but if scheduling allows, they really should do more of what Wead is doing, like say send one or two surrogates to constantly talk to local media in states that are like TWO caucuses/primaries ahead. perhaps they do it already & since they are local we may not be hearing too much about them. who knows?

Wead is definitely stellar at simply P0Wning MSM, it's a sight to behold.

I am curious as to why there's less of "spin alley" immediately after the debates. It seems like the campaign actually did more 'narrative framing' in 2008.

while I'd definitely agree what is more crucial, is spending more time directly meeting and reaching out to viewers, and obviously knowing the MSM's hate for the Doc and the R3VOLution, every time we interact with MSM, there's always a potential for ambush built in, but the Doc does it so effortlessly, despite what some may say, observing in context of the type of message and philosophy, the schedule fatigue, his age, and simply who he is combined, I don't care what anyone says, or how biased I may come off, but frankly, I think the Doc's kicking ass wherever he goes!

I personally cannot imagine having to go sometimes on 3~4 consecutive townhalls, traversing often 100's of miles, doing 5~8 TV/print/radio interviews along the way, all in the same day, while shaking 1000's of people's hands, dutifully, without losing cool, with full sincerity waiting on anyone and everyone, all at age 76.

I mean just who the heck is this guy?? lol

Frankly I think I'd be tired after the 1st 50 handshakes, and probably bitch and moan.

I did not know either

Weeeead!

I luv me some Doug Wead.

wolfe's picture

Thank you for the post...

This hopefully puts to rest any doubts that some in the community had about Wead...

He has been truly awesome for the campaign and we could not have done this without him.

I will admit it still creeps me out when he is introduced as a former Bush campaign adviser though... But I have never doubted Wead because of the stand up job he has done compared to what 2008 looked like.

The Philosophy Of Liberty -
http://www.thephilosophyofliberty.com/

You're welcome. Don't know if you've ever seen

"For Liberty" RP R3VOLution documentary, but in it, Doug openly admits, "I was a shill..." completely repentantly!

I can't recall when he says that, but I believe it is within the first 15 minutes of the film:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GR4WYqabTxU

Dollars to Donuts (I never use that, nor do I know where it originated but always like the sound of it.o) that the entire Iowa Caucus strategy to evangelical outreach was probably ENTIRELY championed by him.

He is a tremendous asset. And he really kicks ass in MSM interviews.

If anyone wants to see the phrase "Killing them with kindness" in action, just watch any of his interviews then he switches on his charm as he starts chuckling as if amused with an on going thought in his head, then proceeds to surgically begin to drop series of info-bombs, with facts, after facts, after facts.

Watching him P0WnZ MSM pressitutes is like watching a chess master go up against a child playing tic-tac-toe!

he definitely needs to go out there more, immediately after debates.

Frankly, is it me, or does it seem like there are less TV cameras at post-debate "spin rooms" where surrogates answer extensively? I could swear I actually saw more of that during the 2008 cycle...
