I really wish

they stop asking Ron Paul stupid questions like how long he will keep campaigning for, etc.

I hope all these nonsensical questions stop once he wins Washington State.

Ron Paul, 24/7.

Nah... he's just focussing on clearing out the underbrush right now so he can more comfortably position his chainsaw against Romney's trunk when he's ready to fell him.

Fixed Vote Counts, Fixed Polls & Media BIAS

Hey MSM!! In your "Heart of Hearts" do you really think that you can continue fooling all the people all the time?
Topic: Honesty and Truth in the Media:
Hey MSM!! Go POLL YOURSELF!! (Maybe Pole is better. :)

LOL at anyone who listens

to the MSM. I thought Paul did a good job, just wish he would sometimes take the Gingrich approach and point out how utterly inane her questions are.

I agree. To anyone who is not

I agree. To anyone who is not following closely will think he is unrealistic according to Candy's description of his media baised losses. RP DOES NOT clarify why he THINKS he is winning. His casual reference to some "confusion" over popular vote tallies is not confirming enough to viewers in general, in my opinion. We know he is getting growing support but the media will contradict this and RP seems to be allowing this.

First 4 minutes ... I almost shut it off

... yet another fake, Corporate Media interview - she takes control over the tone, droning on in that negative voice of hers always implying "... but why cant you win, you are such a loser" ..

And nothing but fake poll data, fishing for gossip about other candidates, and pulling some quote they dig up to see if they can spin it negatively against him.

- No footage of thousands of people at ralleys.

- No mention of the shady business in the vote counts in these early states

- Complete avoidance of any of the 1000 pound elephant issues that are sinking this country like a f*cking stone

He's always straight up, and usually gets around to giving some good answers.

But they string him along, and he keeps letting them get away with it.

He needs to take control of these interviews from the start.

He needs to get mad and get a fire under what he is saying right out of the gate ...


These interviews are his chance to talk directly to the people.

NOT let these corporate elites FRAME HIM AS A LOSER

When are they going to turn this around?

Distancing himself from Romney

This is good news. The media has been trying to claim the two are practically having a love affair. Slick Mitt Romney is probably on the phone with slick Rick and dirty dog Gingrich every night trying to figure out how to control Paul. Any fantasy about Paul being given a position in a Romney administration is likely a joke to Romney. Do not trust Mitt Romney. Ted Kennedy was right about him: Mitt Romney is not pro-choice he is multiple choice.

JT is having a mini fundraiser to keep offering the podcast.

CNN SOTU interview here: http://www.ronpaul2012podcast.com/2012/02/19/ron-paul-on-cnn...

lots of great campaign snippets you won't find elsewhere:

Cyril's picture

Interviewer seems to care only about making it till her next

... pay check.

(By debasing Ron Paul's performances in totally unimaginative and dull MSM bias ways)

Therefore, I didn't see or hear any clue/sign whatsoever about achieving a reasonably good quality in journalism work.

Like ... with bringing to the table ACTUAL issues that matter to not just the candidate's audience, but the People in general.

Instead, was a purely politician-games-centric interview. Who the hell could ever care any longer about those at this point?

Also, misquoted Ron Paul on his concerns re: the threat of political trends developing towards fascism vs. what fascism consists in, once in place, and whether or not we're already into it.

Correct me if I am wrong. Pointers that'd demonstrate otherwise much welcome and appreciated.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

Ron Paul Leaks His Choice for Vice President

Anyone see this before?
Was the question really asked at the event?? (the end where he answers the question)


My concern as to why we are

My concern as to why we are not getting the votes at these primaries and caucuses is because the supporters that we are seeing at Ron Paul's rallies are independents and democrats who for the most part aren't allowed to participate in the selection process. You need to register as a republican in most states as I did in order to participate and get your vote in for Paul. PLEASE let your independent and democratic friends know that time is running out for them to do this if they support Paul!! with regards to the polls, the reason that the MSM is saying that we are in 4th place is because they are only calling registered republicans in very conservative areas so I don't believe this is a good reflection or representation of his true support.

Also, I wanted to mention that I had a family funtion this weekend and while creating small talk peaked the curiosity of a few more family members who will be doing more research on Paul!!

Vote Fraud Deception

Look, the GOP leaders in each state are in collusion with the high level bureaucrats running the national GOP. The Republican Party has done nothing but mitigate Ron Paul to the sidelines, and with the help of the national news media, they control and manipulate the national debate. This is easily understood by reading 'Manufacturing Consent' by one, Noam Chomsky. Ron Paul should pick up as many delegates as he can leading up to the convention. If widespread disenfranchisement of his supporters is suspected in multiple states, he should have no difficulty running as an independent in all 50 states and launching a national campaign. In their 8 year power grab, the GOP did nothing for this country but lower taxes for the top 1% of income earners and bribe the rest of the peasants with $600 worth of stimulus checks. Coming off the heels of the worst president in the history of the United States, the Republican Party had better be willing to change its platform and how it does business. Paul should have no qualms about abandoning a party that has abandoned him - and in my opinion - the sooner the better. He would get substantially more votes in the general election than Ross Perot and would send a historic and clear signal to the corporate powerbrokers and government bigwigs that the American people are sick and tired of being exploited. It is time for a real change and that change is embodied in the spirit of freethinker, doctor, and political genius Ron Paul. By God, if he does not run 3rd party after so much slander from the dirty dogs of the GOP, he should fully condemn the party at a speech during the convention.

She cannot even speak directly to him...

...she addresses him in the third person.

FK you Candy, you degenerate piece of human garbage.

Candy Let Ron Talk

So I can see why he keeps doing interviews with her. She may have asked a lot inane questions, but he deflected all of them to talk about why he is the only true conservative choice.

Candy Crowley

Should stick to things she knows about, and that is candy.

Why doesn't she do us a favor and eat Dana Shultz-Bash.

Sorry for my immaturity.

This will fly in the face of my usual faux maturity

But is Candy Crowley a transexual? She looks rather mannish to steal an old Austin Powers line.

Seriously I thought that was an awful interview. 75% on the same old horserace bullshit. Shut up already. The country is falling apart. Paul might actually have an idea how to save it!


Candy Crowley is a transexual.

And from the look of it, she was beaten with an ugly stick.

The fire rises.


With CNN, ABC, MSNBC, Fox there is no such thing as a substantive interview. Every question is nuance, or symantics and about the electibility, or path to the Republican nomination.

Have they ever questioned Santorum or Gingrichs' path to the nomination? Especially since they're not on all of the ballots.

What pisses me off more is that why does it seem that every election cycle the issue of abortion (in this case contraceptives) and gay marriage are always the main issue. The country is on the brink of collapse and the MSM emphasizes those social issues...? WTF!?

Our currency is a social issue.
Our economy is a social issue.

The fire rises.

Why does a salad cost more than a Big Mac?

In the fascist state the consolidation of industrial power is always given precedence over the individual. Continual deceit becomes common place, all to make even the evil deeds of those with money and influence seem justified in order to grow the state's industrial machine. In this deceit, speaking the truth is always seen as a revolutionary act


do you see yourself in this to the end?

i mean, can you see this five more states?
do you plan to follow through?
can you give us the conditions necessary to make you reconsider?
are you going to continue on?
when do you think you'll give up?
is there a point you see yourself quitting?
do you think it's about time to quit?
are you going to quit soon?
is it time to quit yet?
do you plan to throw in the towel?
when will it be time to throw in the towel?
can you see a point which you might throw in the towel?
what would it take for you to throw in the towel?
have you given any thought to throwing in the towel?
isn't mittwit really the best candidate?

Ron Paul

Ron Paul is the Thomas Jefferson of our time!

Exactly. I thought that most of this interview really sucked. I thought that Ron did fine with his answers. I cannot even begin to imagine the patience this wise man has inside him. To tolerate the mistreatment he receives from the press, his supposedly fellow republicans, the stress of a national campaign. I'm almost 48 years old and I guarantee you that I would have already snapped…more than once. We all know and acknowledge that he is a very intelligent man and a good man, but he has the patience of a Saint. And sometimes I am amazed at his wisdom. He certainly isn't the run of the mill kind of guy. He's a special person. I sometimes wonder if anyone or anything can keep this empire of ours from going the same way that all empires have gone. If anyone can do it, I believe it would be Ron Paul. It seems strange to say this about a living person, but in the same way that I believe that our Founding Fathers were blessed and directed by God…I think that might also be true of our good doctor!

A poor excuse for journalism.

Suggestions: How would the Austrian Economics approach differ from the Keynesian approach adopted by Obama (and the other doofuses in the Republican field)?

How will your approach create jobs?

Why is your approach apparently so popular with the middle class?

Australian Press reporting a two horse race

Thought this article was interesting in the Australian MSM..it basically says that the GOP Presidential candidate race is between Rommney and Santorum!!
It even quotes the Michigan GOP consultant Tom Shields as saying that Santorum is "exciting people"??!
Hmmm Ron Paul is getting thousands of people at his rallys, gets more donations from the military than all other candidates combined ..but Romney's closet rival is Santorum? Am I missing something?
In an effort to spread the message about Ron Paul's performance, I added my comments to the story. Still waiting to see them published....still waiting..wont hold my breath though!

Its BS

Im watching that too Sprite, Its BS, Santorum does everything Ron Paul has already done, Million dollars in a day (if true), Big crowds (Not as big as Pauls), and it gets reported, and Paul never receives a mention. I was watching I think Newshour, It gets broadcasted over here on one of the more obscure channels, and they had a couple of pundits talking about the race, they mentioned everyone EXCEPT Ron Paul. The Guy ALMOST said Rons name, Went something like "Romney's doing well, Ro . . I mean Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich are still picking up delegates too" It is so blatant, it is Unbeleivable.

MSM trying to shut Ron out

Australian occupation has begun with U.S. military bases being placed there. When Bill Clinton left office he went there to prepare the Australians for the occupation.
