Jesse Benton: What The Heck Are You Doing?

Just when we are starting to win tons and tons of states, Jesse Benton and the campaign send out all these mixed signals. First it was Doug Weads video several nights ago that left me with a sickening feeling in my stomach. Then it was Ron Paul's very reassuring audio statement the next day saying that we have everything under control and that we need $650K in the next 2 weeks. But then the campaign never put up a money bomb tracker or ticker to move forward with the money bomb.

Then Ron Paul releases another statement that the media got ahold of saying that he is not going to try anymore in upcoming primaries. Then Jesse Benton goes on talk shows all day explaining what is going on. During the talk shows he mentions how Ron Paul supporters are the problem because we are disrupting these caucuses. He never mentions that Romney supporters are hitting our delegates. Or that they are shutting lights out on us and closing the conventions without a proper vote. Or that they have been stealing votes from us in many of the early primary states. Or that the main stream media has been blacking out Ron Paul althogether and ignoring all of our successful wins. But the minute Ron Paul hints at dropping out it is on the front page of every paper in a matter of seconds.

Then today Jesse Benton releases an email saying that Ron Paul can't win. But we should keep trying.


We were winning everything. We were taking these states down into our win column all over the place. People were motivated and going to everything. People were even so much as ordering pizzas for our delegates who had to stay late for a fraudulent GOP caucus.

As Ron Paul supporters, we didn't know what winning felt like. We had lost every single primary. Now we are starting win these things even in states like VA, Mass, and Michigan! But then the campaign decides to jack everything up. If they would have just kept quiet and stayed below the radar we would still be cleaning house!!!

Every time Romney puffs his chest and knocks us around we act like little girls and let them. This is our country darn it! I want to bring the troops home from over a decade of war! I want to get my liberties restored. I want to get the drones out from over my house. I want the TSA to stop groping my kids. I want the Fed to stop robbing me blind!!!

We have given time, money, and tons of effort to this campaign and to have Jesse Benton blame the supporters on national TV is shameful. To tell me that we are the problem is shameful. We are the only things keeping this revolution going. I am sick of the campaign being so timid.

AND I AM SICK OF THE MIXED SIGNALS!!!! Say something definitive or don't say anything at all! Help us out or get out of the way!

Ron Paul's Presidential Campaign Is Infiltrated From The Inside.

Ron Paul's Presidential Campaign Is Infiltrated From The Inside.

This is not a "conspiracy theory".

It is obvious and to be expected.

***WATCH OUT FOR "minus" Votes And Have A Good Laugh :) ***


Think THOUSANDS of people with money and influence from ALL OVER THE WORLD don't have a vested interest in getting their New World Order Puppets In Office While Trying To Undermine The Ron Paul R[3]VOLUTION?

World Bankers.

England, Israel and many people from many countries are trying to influence this outcome.

Who owns The U.S. Media? Track it's investors.


Official Campaign: Rewards Where Merited and if someone screws something up: FIRE THEM IMMEDIATELY.

There are many, many of us in The Grass Roots who work EVERY DAY and never asked for a penny.


Without Us, There Is No Ron Paul R[3]VOLUTION.

Without Us Grass Roots, It Would Be A Conventional Presidential Campaign Like So Many That Went Down In Flames, Bankruptcy and Overnight Oblivion: None Of Those Were Worldwide Grassroots Movements.

Remember The "In-It-To-Win Moneybomb?" That was going really well until the DONATIONS TICKER was taken off the front page at The Daily Paul (...while it remained on www.ronpaul2012.com for like a full day longer.

That is what made that Money Bomb Tank: It was growing everyday until someone "pulled the plug".

I am going to call Eric and Curt at Ron Paul Products to see how I can help them mail ALL of California. I trust those guys. They are TRULY SERIOUS: www.SuperBrochure.com - 941 - 962 - 7660

Maybe these guys can get behind a MEGA-MONEY-BOMB DRIVE FOR CALIFORNIA.


Same thing with Dr. K Research.

I happen to trust him.

I Trust The Grassroots. That Is The Ron Paul R[3]VOLUTION.

I'm an alt delegate...

...and I could care less what JB says. My vote will only go to one candidate, and that is Ron Paul, come hell or high water.

Yeah what the hell

As a delegate I am changing my mind. I don't start anything to quit. That would be the Jesse Benton style. No I will be at that freaking convention just like you and I will thumb my nose at the Republican Party. No one is going to take my hard work away from me. Jesse Benton needs his rear end kicked until his nose bleeds but he is not going to take this one away from me. Win or no win I am going to give some body a bad trip down there.

You are a true patriot!

You are a true patriot! Thank you for your steadfastness!!!

I don't get where Benton got those numbers.

My first thought was that Benton was trying to blow smoke up the Rmoney campaign's ass so they might roll over. I think that's still the case regarding Doug and Dr. Paul's messages. I haven't seen anything where Benton down puts Paul supporters so if you have links.. If that is the case that he did say that then I'm disappointed he's still in charge considering what RP delegates have had to put up with. At the same time they would have to publicly distance themselves from violence, no matter how minor.

I think that supportive VETS should have "Boots on the Ground" at these next caucuses as a quiet show of determination. Right now I see women being hard and kids filming and men doing what they can with no support excepting those pizzas.

If you think it's going to be easier to take back the Constitution if something cataclysmic happens, you're deluded. That's when Patriots will really have to step up or TPTB is just going to sweep it all up. Now, or this country is done. Just my opinions.

Now it's about the Constitution and the fight to defend it.

The Vet Presence Idea was Green-lighted by Benton

When Larry Sinclair stated in the conference call that there would be a large contingent of Vets marching to Tampa and would make their presence known would Benton try to "step in front of them" in some way. Benton replied that those are free people and are entitled to do as they wish and had no intention of interfering. He did say that his only responsibility was to the delegates and hope they would continue in being respectful.

Now it's about the Constitution and the fight to defend it.

Continue in being respectful

Benton that is all we have ever been. So were are you people coming up with this disrespectful?

Dave P 's comment

I agree 100%!! We need some VETS at the caucuses.

Just listened to the conference call

Benton seemed defensive in respect of the delegates and how badly they've been treated and vowed to give respect if respect was received. He's not much of a speaker and I think he comes across as waffling in conviction and still kow-towing to the press that's treated his campaign so badly.

Now it's about the Constitution and the fight to defend it.

Jesse Conference

Jesse Conference Call:

Are You All Ready to Fall in Line for Romney?

Start getting ready for it. Get your shoes shined and your uniforms tidy. However, if you don't have confidence in Mitt, then check out Gary Johnson, Libertarian candidate for President. He is not ideal but he is a far sight better than ORomney. Read more: www.garyjohnson2012.com and www.lp.org




We are winning this campaign and becoming a thorn in the side of big government.We shall restore America to it's principles, but only if we stay strong.

All you need to do is to

All you need to do is to prove that what Jesse said is wrong, we proved it to Jesse the last time, why should this be any different?

If the delegates are Dr. Paul's supporters and the alternatives are Dr. Paul supporters too, Dr. Paul's name is on the ballot and the delegates vote as they should, according to who they see fit, then removing the delegates won't work for Romney either.

If the majority of the delegates vote for Dr. Paul then disqualifying the delegates because of their votes will mean removing the delegates of more than half of the delegates who represent their states at Tampa, show me the man with enough guts to do it at the floor of Tampa.

I know and I don't care about

I know and I don't care about what he said, I have seen Dr. Paul supporters make miracles and I saw so many establishment upsets to fall for an illusion. Jesse may say whatever he wants, he is not the boss. The boss is every RP supporter that have been working at the ground for the sake of the message. Delegates is the name of the game, that will never change.

Dr. Paul will be voted for at Tampa, even if Dr. Paul says "Don't".

Got audio or video for that?

I just listened to an interview posted on this thread.


I don't see hear your point in it, brit.


Please move this post to the cry room.


Free includes debt-free!

Who does Jesse really work for?

I think this is a question Jesse needs to answer for himself.

"We The People", that's the employer, that's the boss.

Benton says Ron Paul Can't Win?

Are you serious? Benton sent our an email today saying RP "CAN'T" win? Please - could you provide a link.

Thank you.

already answered.

AH! Thank you. Yes I saw that....

Thank you, yes, actually I did read that either late last night or early this morning and had to re-read it to make sure I got that right. I questioned some folks on FB but got zero replies. Here was my question. Are their enough primaries/caucuses left to give Romney the 1144 needed? Does anyone here know that answer? How can one have a moneybomb on the 17th and declare the delegate strategy will not pan out because Romney is already too close to getting the 1144. I love to donate for a win, but frankly, with this type of talk my donation can only be like a token of appreciation.

My find function must be broken. I didn't find the word "can't" anywhere in that document.

Me neither...

It's Working!

http://t.co/maADrJG4 Matt is right, they are trying to get us fired up! Kinda reverse psychology.

ClayABrown on Twitter

our dedication and time is spent to win and nothing less

Yesterday I was laughing to myself about the complete disconnection the Romney campaign has with the Paul campaign. I was thinking about how the Romney camp seems completely clueless when it comes to the psyche of the average Ron Paul supporter. Now I see that it is not only the Romney campaign that is clueless. Listen clearly. We are not busting our tail as delegates to "shape" some platform that no politician pays any attention to anyways. We are not busting our backs to have Dr. Paul speak at some whore convention that just 4 years ago had security remove him from the premises and treated like a criminal. And we are for sure not working for a seat at the table of some corrupt Republican country club party to see who can get the largest donation from Goldman Sachs. However, we are working for the same goal we had from the start; to send delegates to Tampa to vote for Dr. Ron Paul regardless and take over local, state, and national leadership positions along the way. So the "unforeseen" that you refer to. It does exist and maybe it is best that neither you or the Romney campaign know about it.

Maybe as Baracuda_Trader wrote

in another post the RNC was threatening Dr. Paul's campaign.

he said: I really think that the intention of his message yesterday was to protect the open invitation to the convention. In this environment it would be so easy for the RNC to contrive and justify withdrawing the offer.

interesting thought... and

interesting thought... and we could also speculate about the Bernake meeting.

Lovely post



AND let them know

WE are in this till the END
We will NOT support ROMNEY


To arms! To arms! The Redcoats are coming!
