May 8~9, 2012 Post-Delegate Strategy Victory Revelation: MSM FreakOuts & 'Knew It All Along' CYA-Meme


The Case for Ron Paul's Agents of Chaos

Fighting the GOP establishment for influence is the only chance they have of drawing attention to their issues at convention time.

"They [GOP Establishment] need to be confronted by [Ron Paul republican] libertarians, not placated."

By Conor Friedersdorf | May 8 2012, 5:58 PM ET

Reflecting on the indefatigable Ron Paul supporters who are still trying to win delegates at various state GOP conventions, Doug Mataconis writes, "By and large, it appears pretty clear that they are antagonizing mainline Republicans every time they pull this stunt. That's hardly the kind of thing that will win friends and influence people, nor is it the kind of thing you should do if you want to become a voice of influence in the Republican Party as Paul supporters claim that they do."

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


Ron Paul Comes Roaring Back (Sort Of)

The Texas representative scores some surprising wins at the Maine and Nevada state conventions. But will he be able to force a brokered convention?

"What Paul's delegates can do is make a fuss. When Romney goes to Tampa for his coronation, there will be plenty of noisy Paul backers around who can make their voices heard in ways other than the actual ballot."

By David A. Graham | May 8 2012, 10:06 AM ET 29

For months, Ron Paul supporters have been saying that the good doctor's chances have been underestimated, and that his quiet campaign to collect delegates has been far more successful than the media and his opponents would have you believe.

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

Pretty fair one; of course, the writer has a bit of a soft spot for the Doc:

Is Ron Paul misunderstood? What both sides can learn from the liberty-lovin' Texas congressman

By Adam Sparks | 05.08.12 | 03:00 pm

It's hard for outsiders to understand the world of Ron Paul. Friedrich Hayek, Ludwig von Mises and Murray Rothbard — Austrian School economists whose ideas form the basis of Paul's ideology — are not exactly household names, and the vast majority of us make it out of high school (and college for that matter) without hearing one word about the Federal Reserve.

Trouble in Tampa Could Be Spelled 'Ron Paul'

"His problem is that it's increasingly apparent that Paul and his delegates will be a force to be reckoned with at the convention and beyond."

By Kenneth T. Walsh | May 8, 2012

Presidential candidate Ron Paul's supporters will be furious if he is denied a prominent role, such as a prime-time address, at the Republican National Convention in Tampa this August. If that happens, it's likely that many Paul followers will feel cheated and stage protests in Tampa, then boycott presumptive nominee Mitt Romney in the November election, Paul sources say.

With Ron Paul, GOP expects Wash. convention battle

By MIKE BAKER, Associated Press
Originally published May 8, 2012 at 12:21 PM
Page modified May 8, 2012 at 2:46 PM

OLYMPIA, Wash. - Republican leaders are bracing for a combative Washington state party convention as supporters of presidential candidate Ron Paul look to seize more delegates from presumptive nominee Mitt Romney.

...Chris Vance, the former chairman of the state Republican Party, said he expects the state convention to be a battle. Paul's supporters may be particularly successful because so many conservatives have been uncomfortable with Romney and because Paul's loyalists have shown that they are willing to struggle for every last delegate.

"In a caucus convention system, they are formidable," Vance said. "They are motivated. They will come early and stay late."

Another one from AP, this one I believe started circulating immediately after the NV and ME state GOP convention results were announced:

Undeterred, Ron Paul and supporters soldier on

By: ASSOCIATED PRESS | Richmond Times-Dispatch
Published: May 08, 2012

WASHINGTON — Don't tell Ron Paul the Republican primary is over. He's too busy mucking up Mitt Romney's efforts to accumulate enough convention delegates to officially claim the GOP nomination for president.

Then there's the LATimes' deluded political cartoonist Mr. Know-It-All, who doesn't:


Ron Paul continues to complicate Mitt Romney's coronation

Ron Paul keeps nipping at Mitt Romney's heels

By David Horsey | May 8, 2012, 5:00 a.m.

Through most of the primary season, Ron Paul was overlooked, underestimated and laughed off. There was no scenario by which this ideological renegade could become the nominee of the ideologically dogmatic Republican Party. Yet as the last candidate standing in the way of Mitt Romney's smooth slide to the nomination, he is proving himself capable of ingenious mischief.

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

And, YEAH!

Paul backers reject compromise
Supporters stick with tea party platform as adopted in 2010

By Susan M. Cover scover@mainetoday.com
State House Bureau | 12:00 AM, May 8, 2012

AUGUSTA -- References to Austrian economics and resistance to a "one world government" will remain in the Maine Republican Party platform for the next two years.

On Sunday night, after many delegates had left the party's prolonged and tumultuous state convention at the Augusta Civic Center, supporters of presidential candidate Ron Paul rejected a compromise platform that had been crafted over four months, and opted to maintain the tea party platform that was adopted in 2010.

Ron Paul wins Maine, Nevada delegates. But what does it mean?

By Rachel Rose Hartman | The Ticket – Mon, May 7, 2012

Ron Paul has become a footnote in the Republican presidential primary after failing to win first place in any state nominating contest and significantly trailing Mitt Romney in the overall delegate count.

But the Texas congressman still keeps racking up delegates across the country.

"a footnote"??

WTF?

Do thse pressitutes have any clue how irrelevant they are to history? A man with MILLIONS of WORLDWIDE supporters who will be carrying on his philosophical message, hell, many of whom have built entire liberty enterprises around him, and will continue to pay, invest, support and show up, no matter what anyone thinks, is gonna far outlast ANY MSM scribe or know-it-all nobody wonks.

Talk about delusional; when all is said and done, these delusional MSM kids won't even be a popped zit in the footnotes of footnotes of footnotes of history. The only 'history' they'll make is whatever is left on NSA/Google/Facebook servers which frankly with billions, possibly trillions of pages, who's gonna care?

Pardon, as if it's news, but seriously it's hard not to just absolutely get vexed reading these little snide petulant dolts who continue to ridicule, literally the smartest man in DC, if not in all of public service. Gosh dang it! argghhgghgh!

PS. Hope you guys take the time when it permits and occasionally remind yourselves just what a beautiful bunch of souls y'all are: you guys do realize that IF WE ALL WANTED TO, we got enough diversity in skills within the R3VOLution anywhere from plumbers mechanics, welders, artists, designers, writers, philosophers, poets, musicians, film makers, engineers, computer scientists, business(wo)men/entrepreneurs/investors, inventors, farmers, genetic scientists, bio-mechanical engineers, architects, nurses, medical doctors, nutritionists/alt.medicine/holistic/homeopathy specialists, spiritual gurus pastors/monks/imams/rabbis from practically all faiths, tactical shooters/ex-cops/vets, etc. among us to literally be our own little self contained country or start an entirely new civilization, right? .D

I for one, am grateful to be among y'all and gotten a chance to 'hear' from even just some of ya!

And, please start making liberty babies, y'all. Have you seen how beautiful all of you are? Take a gander.

Not related to the delegate strategy, but on gold, and a pretty good OpEd recognizing Dr. Paul's nuance on "Competing Currencies":

Ron Paul Has a Gold Ally in the Buffett Family

By John DeFeo 05/08/12 - 10:45 AM EDT

The late-Congressman Howard Buffett is a posthumous pillar of the Libertarian party, the anti-war movement and asset-backed currency -- the "Ron Paul of his day," according to Philip Klein. And on the subject of gold, Buffett Sr. may have penned the best-ever essay in support of a gold standard: "Human Freedom Rests on Gold-Redeemable Money."

Howard Buffet:

"Is there a connection between Human Freedom and A Gold Redeemable Money? At first glance it would seem that money belongs to the world of economics and human freedom to the political sphere."

One wonders what truly go wrong with their progeny; had Howard Buffet been alive today, if he were truly a principled man, as oft cited to be, I cannot imagine him supporting ANYONE other than Dr. Paul; does the following description not sound EXACTLY like Dr. Paul's guiding principles, too?

Leila Buffett, Warren Buffett's mother, recounted that her husband said he considered only one issue when deciding whether to vote for a bill: "Will this add to, or subtract from, human liberty?" Now that's a concept that more policymakers, business leaders, their economists and advisers should ask of themselves.

Does Ron Paul loyalists’ revolution have any ammo?

By Anjeanette Damon (contact) | Wednesday, May 9, 2012 | 2 a.m.

Confused by this weekend’s Republican convention?

No one blames you.

Yes, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney won the Nevada caucuses in February, capturing 50 percent of the vote.

Why then, did this weekend’s headlines read that Texas Rep. Ron Paul won almost all of Nevada’s national delegates?

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

Now, they're openly mulling? Kinda.

What happens if Ron Paul actually wins?

By Steve Sebelius | Posted: May 9, 2012 | 2:03 a.m.

Before we leave the subject, while the supporters of Texas Rep. Ron Paul bask in their victorious takeover of the Nevada Republican Party convention, let's ponder a question.

What if Paul wins?

Yes, it's an extreme longshot, but one Paul fans vigorously embrace. It would require supreme organizational skill, incredible lobbying and deft changes to the rules allocating delegate votes. But what if Paul fans descend on the Republican National Convention and replicate their Nevada success?

Ron Paul Is Still Racking Up Delegates — And Mitt Romney Is Finally Getting Nervous

Grace Wyler | May 9, 2012, 2:29 AM | 312 |

For several weeks I have been writing about Ron Paul's upset victories at district and state GOP conventions, and about the surprising success of his delegate strategy. Now, with Paul's delegate sweeps in Maine and Nevada, it looks like Mitt Romney and the Republican Party are finally starting to catch on to the trend.

Paul supporters swept this weekend's state GOP conventions, picking up 21 of 24 RNC delegates in Maine and 22 out of 28 delegates in Nevada. The twin victories come on the heels of Paul's surprise delegate wins at district caucuses and state conventions in Missouri, Minnesota, Colorado, and Louisiana, as well as a Paul-friendly takeover of the Alaska GOP.

Paul supporters have managed to stage these state-level coups despite significant resistance from local Establishment Republicans, many of whom are predictably reluctant to relinquish their power to the insurgents. So far, however, the Paul campaign has attributed most of the Establishment's "shenanigans" to local animosities.

I feel strangly confident today

moreso than I have throughout this election. Not sure why. Maybe the mainstream media/establishment's house of cards will come tumbling down, I don't know, but for some reason the votes today didn't phase me. Seems like just more evidence that the vote is rigged. Rigged througout this primary season by both fraudulent vote counting and by the corporate owned media's influence.

It is becoming more and more evident as our forfathers' wisdom comes to light in their design of the caucus and delegate system to safeguard against a rigged election. This year's primary is the most blatant example of a rigged election in the nation's history and I really think more and more americans who actually participate are realizing this, even those who initially supported Romney. Many have noticed something is fishy and consequently; have done their research.

I don't know why but I was completely content with the election results today and didn't even bother checking, knew mitt would win by a landslide in the popular vote. Guess that's why our founders didn't make the popular vote system our system of election although it is the form of democracy we push on other countries to control their elections. I really think the bad guys are going to be exposed soon, and when they do, as has been seen in history, the masses will come down on them in revolt. They can keep their cake.

Same HERE!

for the same exact reasons you've outlined here:

!!!

Yup, prior to a Super Tuesday, I went through exactly the same cycle:

1. meditate & pray on the eve of a given primary/caucus,

2. then wait with anticipation fully knowing after Iowa, the polls are as always rigged-push polls and MSM will smear and belittle Dr. Paul as always,

3. AP will as always 'report' preset/pre-determined vote outcome and rest of TV morons will act 'surprised' as the results start 'just coming in'

4. then get pissed knowing that it's all rigged, grumble grumble, check DP, refresh, refresh, refresh, refresh for local news from the R3VOL in electing states,

5. then settle, wallow for a nanosecond, then the brain kicks in, and are reminded: 'Ha! Suckers! As long as my beloved R3VOL show up at county/district/state conventions and WIN, it doesn't matter! We got this in the bag! Turn the TV off ya boob!'

6. followed by, 'oh but those state conventions are a month away! grumble, grumble, gotta wait for those results... gettin' agita here!'

7. then 'zen' sets in: 'We've already won! As there ain't a single item of public discourse that those loudmouthed MSM pliant sheeple whore bastards in NYC and DC who HAVEN'T STOLEN any and EVERY one of Dr. Paul's ideas/platforms! Our issues are the ONLY game in town, in the world right now! Whether they credit the Doc or not, is irrelevant, as "laws of economics" will force everyone to deal with reality eventually. And that entropy is right around the corner! There ain't nothing they can do to stop it!

8. gnawing and teething primal... at something in the meantime while awaiting State Convention dates, and outcomes. Then, huge relief and excitement, like this past weekend!

Then, the cycle repeats, again. Such is the life of a non-delegate R3VOL .D

Of course, in the interim though, paying attention to news sheerly out of idiot and propaganda vigilance can drive one up the wall. The MSM and politicos only proceed to feign to discuss the issues of import with a-holes like Paul Ryan or even Moron Perry on TV, AS IF either of those two actually 'get' econ, or budget, or slashing departments at all! While NEVER giving Dr. Paul credit for those ideas!

I swear I wanted to throw my TV/laptop whenever MSM whores mentioned Perry wanting to eliminate departments, NONE of which he could even remember properly. All the while pathetically propagandist MSM ACTING as if that was Perry's original idea to begin with, when it's hilariously obvious that he STOLE it from Dr. Paul!

Not to mention, the title of the politically expedient Bilderberg Perry's book (that he didn't write, nor his illiterate ass could read or comprehend) "Fed Up!" which has long been a rallying cry from 'END the FEDers' for DECADES, was conveniently published a year prior to his POTUS run announcement? arghghggh! Seriously, just how moronic do these aholes delude we are??

All those things aside, I'm simply reminded that this is all a matter of waiting game.

But I can viscerally sense the shift in the urgency and fear in the MSM & Ruling Class & RINOs, with the weekend's clearly illustrating growing testament to OUR success!

I'd say it's time to brace for an impact, starting this week, and on... they're pissed, and those RINO bastards and NWO hacks want some action and get their hands really dirty now.

We're ready. I think.D

Though hope he doesn't reveal too much, as I can literally FEEL the rapacious spying eyes of RINOs/Wrongneyites closing in, after getting P0wNz in NV, ME, LA, MA, MN, etc. They're watching us like vultures now, for any and all ammo.

Unfortunately they simply don't care, that's why were in this mess in the first place

yup, which makes one truly wonder,

even IF they actually understood the gravity of just how absolutely dire and imminent the coming currency collapse is, would they actually change, or do anything different, or admit that they were wrong and actually started to research all those things that Dr. Paul have talked about for so many decades, and that we constantly pester and annoyed them to death via email and comment sections on.

My guess? Probably a big fat no. As eventually, when one lives in a happy delusion for so long, they'd rather live in the bliss of the Blue Pill, preferably forever like Cypher from the Matrix, than face reality, even if changing may literally save their lives.
