Ben Swann = Paul Harvey

Ben is the Paul Harvey of the new media...

Great interview!

I think we all learned a lot more about Ben's motivations and thought processes. I like how he talked about the "news for profit" and how he fought against his own station trying to shorten his segments. Great stuff all around!

With liberty and justice for all...who can afford it.

Just wrote Rachel

and CCed Ben. I REALLY hope she gets him on her show.

Love you Ben! Thank you

Love you Ben!

get him on Maddow

Rachel Maddow seems to be the only show willing to report on the election corruption that has a primetime national audience in mainstream outlets. Someone should lobby to get Swann on her show discussing these multiple instances of fraud that are going on. Would make for a great segment. Not sure if there would be additional difficulty being associated with a Fox affiliate, but I'd like to see his reporting get national attention in front of a broader audience among different demographics that get their news from mainstream outlets.

email RACHEL MADDOW (We read our mail.)

To Rachel Maddow!

Great Idea!

So Rachel Maddow if you are reading this: invite Ben Swann to your show to talk about the GOP election process.

Yes, Thanks.

The way Dr. Paul preserves both his dignity & mission in the face of neo-con & neo-lib voting fraud is astounding - more than merely presidential in quality.

The way Dr. Paul, manages and seeds the convention delegates is also an astounding bit of generalship - showing commander-in-chief qualities.

An open or brokered convention may require rule changes to succe

An open or brokered convention may require rule changes to succeed in raising an electable Republican platform and FULL slate of candidates.

Given the relative extents of A) neo-con/neo-lib primary voting fraud and  B) Pro-Paul convention delegate placement: The Ron Paul for President campaign may need to prepare for RNC Convention rule 40(b) “Each candidate for nomination for President of the United States and Vice President of the United States shall demonstrate the support of a plurality of the delegates from each of five (5) or more states, severally, prior to the presentation of the name of that candidate for nomination.”

Even though the required plurality of state delegates may be readily achieved for Paul once the delegate have fulfilled their 1st vote candidate commitment -The convention may set its rules and the rules of the RNC and there is cause for the Paul inclined delegates to change that rule.

Consider that No POTUS, No single man can save our REPUBLIC. Republicans need to recognize their situation and act resourcefully and cooperatively.
Personal ego raised above the necessities required to SAVE OUR REPUBLIC MAY be quickly used to disqualify any proposal or proposed candidate.

So much must be accomplished so quickly if we are (God so helping) restore our economic prosperity and liberty.

The Republican party needs to raise that proposed cabinet (1st & 2nd strings) and include that proposed cabinets objectives in the party platform.

By platform and practical necessity, most cabinet secretaries will need to devolve their departments unconstitutional missions to the states – employing congress-authorized interstate compacts were needed – this will return to the states their power, along with inherent political and budget problems.  Dr. Paul is best positioned to bring this proposed cabinet together – particularly since Dr. Paul might be happiest, safest and most effective if he stood for three offices combined: VP, Treasury & Chairman of the Federal Reserve.  

Then that cabinet needs to raise a POTUS candidate from the convention floor that is fit to MANAGE such a strong cabinet.

We do not need a POTUS Candidate who grandstands which both inflames opposition and steals both the credit and heat due a cabinet officer.

We need a POTUS with a Calvin Coolidge style of presidency.

VA Gov. Bob McDonnell might be the best fit available among the constitutionally eligible ‘natural-born-citizens’.  It might take a change of rule 40(b) for that to happen.  But if the platform and proposed cabinet was truly excellent then the rule 40(b) plurality should not be difficult to obtain.

Speaking of a FULL SLATE: In all this it is useful to remember that retaining the House majority and winning a senate majority is important.  These persons should take an active & highly visible role in gaining platform solidarity and solidarity with the proposed cabinet.  Their labors and buy-in should be formally, publically and gratefully acknowledged by the convention.   Exceptionally American Victorious Teamwork by Republican will win the confidence, minds and hearts of the American People – And will win votes come election time.

VA Gov. Bob McDonnell can earn the public stage for this honorable elevation of the Republican party by gently, graciously and firmly doing his VA Constitutional duty to ‘take care that the [duly authorized constitutional] laws be faithfully executed”, and honorable embody all such force as is necessary to suppress insurrection, and enforce the execution of the laws upon each and every customary felony of each and every officer of the Virginia Judiciary, by offering them pardon upon the virtue of parole oath.  The customary conclusively evidenced felonies, each having evidenced criminal intent, are against Va-248, Va18.2-481(5), Va18.2-482, Va18.2-111, Va19.2-191(2) & the VFOIA.  Once the honor of Virginia’s courts are restored, including the Federal Courts in Virginia in that each Va Federal Judge is an officer of the SCOVA, then EVERY POTUS candidates Constitutional NBC eligibility can be examined according to VA1-248 under the as-ratified evidenced intent.  It is likely that Obama’s signatures as POTUS will be ab inito void and indictments must issue to many out-of-state persons that fall under Virginia’s jurisdiction.   Those indictments may be preceded by Gov. McDonnell’s invitation to surrender and pardon under the virtue of their parole oath.  The United States may have its political alienations healed by Va. Gov. McDonnell even before he is vested as POTUS.

Ben Swann is the Ron Paul of Journalism

Not only smart, a critical thinker, unafraid to tackle the big, complicated issues, but principled and consistent, and cares about the integrity of the complex voting process.

Very informing interview. Bump!
