Here's Adam Kokesh interviewing Penny Langford Freeman:

Penny Freeman, former staffer in tears over Ron Paul betrayals
Published on Jun 8, 2012 by AdamKokesh


Who is Ms. Penny Langford Freeman?

She's only one of the few persons who was responsible for directing Gary Franchi's RevolutionPAC team in to tracking down the story of Mr. James Williams of Matagorda County, Texas, whose story is featured in this interview:


In case some of you may have forgotten just what kind of a gracious man the Doc is, and was, here's the original:

Compassion of Dr. Paul


James Williams of Matagorda County, Texas recounts a touching true story. Living in a still prejudiced Texas In 1972, his wife had a complication with her pregnancy. No doctors would care for her or deliver their bi-racial child. In fact one of the hospital nurses called the police on James.

Dr. Ron Paul was notified and took her in, delivering their stillborn baby. Because of the compassion of Dr. Ron Paul, the Williams' never received a hospital bill for the delivery.

Ron Paul views every human being as a unique individual, afforded the rights endowed by our creator and codified in the Bill of Rights.

Here's Penny Langford Freeman's EXCLUSIVE personal account of working for Dr. Paul, back in the day, as broadcast during the RevolutionPAC's 12hr Marathon Fundraiser 'PowerCast":


Very powerful interviews.

for a true patriot.


Infiltrate from within. Ron Paul supporters knew Jessie was a traitor to the movement. But, now seeing Olson also is a traitor what a disappointment.

For weeks now I've been wondering

what is going on. Thanks to this interview things are quickly coming into focus.

I trust Ron Paul but I don't intend to return to the DP anymore.

I'm sick of the spin and the last few times I've clicked on article/videos like this, my AVG virus protection has detected a threat and had to move it to the vault.

Another necessary bump. Like

Another necessary bump. Like the MSM, this is being ignored as front page material. I love Ron Paul, but I love the truth above all. People should be able to decide for themselves, and not see only the stuff that makes the campaign sound like a well oiled machine, in my opinion. We are adults, right?

A necessary


Many more questions now

Good interview....As I have said many times, whether or not there is chicanery in the campaign, I know what I believe in and bs from the insiders of the campaign doesn't change that. The only thing that concerns me is fleecing of the supporters. I sure hope that Ron Paul doesn't know this...I really trust that man and would take a bullet for him to continue the pursuit of Freedom as he is a better messenger then I. However, to hell with it. I will continue to do what I need to do. But damn Benton...I think I dislike him even more now then ever before. If what is said is true, he is worse then Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, etc. My radar will be on high alert for the future of that scumbag.

Odds on front page vs erase

Then we will see who is about honesty and who isn't. With the ovberwhelming support and importance, people should be allowed to make up their own minds. I can't count all the fluff I've seen on the front page any given day, but something important like this keeps getting erased. Makes a thinking person ask questions.

I mean seriously, now there are users personal opinions on the front page, but Adam and someone who worked with Ron Paul over a decade keep getting erased. Any ideas why?


at least one other

thread on this topic that was generating a fair bit of discussion
was erased.

I also had the experience for the first time of clicking on one
of my comments back to a thread that was still there, but
then being told that my comment was not found?

Anyone else experience this?

you have to admire adams

ability to milk the Paul campaign for all it's worth.
how many elections has Dr. Paul won, adam?
how many has adam won?
Ron Paul has an impressive freedom resume.
adam dances like a monkey for viewers.
who has real integrity?
sorry adam, you lose. i'll keep my faith in Ron Paul.

"The two weakest arguments for any issue on the House floor are moral and constitutional"
Ron Paul

I'm seeing a division starting

on one hand you have jack hunter and his opinion that Rand Paul's endorsement isn't a huge deal and Rand isn't selling out, then you have people who believe this woman and Adam and Penny with their theory that Rand was bought off, their is a conspiracy inside the Paul campaign, and Benton is a evil neocon setup to destroy this movement. When I hear both arguments I believe Hunter has the more rational argument. Any thoughts?

Nobody had to buy Rand off.

Nobody had to buy Rand off. He has long been a suck up who values personal advancement, even if it means playing kissy face with a man, Hannity, who was leading the "Ron Paul is a racist" charge in January. Rand has always been squishy on the issues. A case in point was this three-year old interview with Scott Horton:



Benton is definitely up to no good... he may not be an "evil neocon", but I have never trusted him. I think Penny is telling the truth.

Get this on the Front Page NOW!

Keep posting comments and get everyone's attention on this.

Sure does confirm a lot of (what used to be) suspicions. One thing is crystal clear: No matter what, WE must carry on and forget nothing, good or bad. Don't dwell on the negative, but don't forget it, either. It's easier to keep focused, once the truth is revealed.

“It is the food which you furnish to your mind that determines the whole character of your life.”
―Emmet Fox

The question that this raises in my mind is

How much did she get paid to give this interview? Also who may have paid her?

~Your perception becomes your reality~


Adam found another disgruntled former worker to share demoralizing answers, magically!, the day after Rand makes a strategic political move. Amazing timing!

"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav

Whoa....whoa! Mind is

Whoa....whoa! Mind is officially blown. The neocons may have dealt their blow, but they didn't count on all of the Liberty Babies that Ron Paul has brought into the world...a whole lot more than 4000! =D

OH great! just great....

Thank you very very much Penny!!!

Insightful. The internet is awesome.


Great interview by Adam. Penny seems very level headed. Hopefully she can reconnect with the Doctor.

Thanks Penny for truth and

Thanks Penny for truth and honesty.

What does Ron have to say

What does Ron have to say about this all?

Especially that his Son endorsed a man which 99% of this movement will NOT support, and a mortal enemy of all this movement stands for.

You endorse Romney? I don't endorse YOU. And you are no friend of Liberty or truth, as Romney is a banker backed fraud.

He's tainted, dirty, shifty.

No concessions.

Friend to Minarchists, AnCaps, Voluntaryists, Agorists, Constitutionalists, Libertarians, Paul Supporters, Free Marketeers, Jeffersonians, Status Quo Buckers, and Ron Paul Fans.

Pax Libertas. Semper Veritas. Semper Res Publica.

It answers some questions, but some remain

how come Adam and others knows the answers immediately after big Rand's blow. Why did not they say it much earlier? This woman supposedly was clear one year ago what was going on. That was the time to react. Obviously this campaign could not go too far.

I have had a feeling for a long time that something was wrong with the campaign. Completely passive site while there were so many online supporters, very slow facebook page, poor TV ads, no reaction to obvious frauds and media bias and so on, and so forth.


has spoken about some of this before and gotten slagged for
it by many DP'ers - I had a feeling he was right all along -
this connects quite a few dots.

At least one other thread linking to this video was just
disappeared... hope this one stays up.

Good point, Adam says things

Good point, Adam says things he know will not make him popular in the self proclaimed "hive". Be more aware of those wanting to continually say things that are popular.

Yeah and what was she supposed to do?

Come onto the DP and expose it and get blown off the board as a shill,mole,traitor,neo-con,cia plant? Don't you get it Paul is insulated by Benton.

sorry PollMan

here we disagree.
is Ron perfect?
well, he is human.
is he naive?
i think not, he's been ahead of his time most of his life.
to think he's incapable of running his campaign is absurd.

"The two weakest arguments for any issue on the House floor are moral and constitutional"
Ron Paul

Trygve Olson

This guy is really looking like a spook, he was involved in the "color revolutions", which were failed CIA coups.

"At [Sen. Mitch] McConnell’s request, the National Republican Senatorial Committee sent an adviser to Kentucky to watch over Rand Paul’s general-election campaign — ‘to be the grown-up in the room,’ according to one Washington Republican who spoke on the condition of anonymity to talk candidly.

"The adviser, Trygve Olson, developed a friendship with Rand Paul, and the two realized that they could teach each other a lot — to the benefit of both candidate and party. Olson showed Paul and his campaign establishment tactics: working with the news media, fine-tuning its message. And Paul showed Olson — and by extension, McConnell — how many people were drawn to the GOP by his message of fiscal responsibility…. And at Rand Paul’s suggestion, Olson joined his father’s presidential campaign this year, basically to do what he did for Rand: help bring the Paul constituency into the Republican coalition without threatening the party. It’s probably no small coincidence that the partnership helps Rand’s burgeoning political career, too."

Who is Trygve Olson? A former official of the International Republican Institute (IRI), a tax-funded "regime-change" operation under the rubric of the National Endowment for Democracy, Olson was involved in several of the "color revolutions" that swept Eastern Europe and the central Asian former Soviet republics during the Bush years. This New York Times article reports on his activities in Belarus meddling in their internal politics and plotting to overthrow its thuggish President, Alexander Lukashenko: he also played a part in stirring up similar trouble on Washington’s behalf in Serbia and Poland.

At a meeting of the New Atlantic Initiative, another semi-official interventionist outfit, in 2004, Olson appeared on the same podium as various government apparatchiks of the old Cold Warrior/Radio Free Europe type, who gave seminars on the ins-and-outs of successful "regime change." While others gave talks on Lukashenko’s "links" to Saddam Hussein and Israel’s other enemies in the region, Olson gave a presentation on polling results in the country. A particular area of concern was the possibility of an economic or political union with Russia, which was seen by the participants as the main threat to "democracy" and Europeanization in Belarus. And while meddling in Eastern Europe appears to be his specialty – his wife, Erika Veberyte, served as chief foreign policy advisor to the Speaker of the Lithuanian parliament – this biography on the web site of the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies at Stanford University says:

"Mr. Olson has helped advise political parties and candidates in numerous countries throughout the world including nearly all of Central and Eastern Europe, Indonesia, Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria, Venezuela, and Serbia."

The "color revolutions" of the Bush era were brazen attempts to overthrow regimes deemed unfriendly to the US, and absorb the scattered pieces of the former Soviet Union into the Western sphere of influence. Of course, these efforts all backfired: in Georgia, for one example, our chosen candidate set up a veritable dictatorship, jailed his opponents for "treason," and launched a disastrous war against Russia. In Ukraine and Kyrgyzstan, too, our sock puppets set themselves up for a backlash: both US-installed regimes have since been ousted, either by being unceremoniously voted out of office or by force. In Venezuela, the US government has long sought to overthrow the blustering caudillo, Hugo Chavez, and our meddling has only played into his hands, enabling him to muster nationalist resentment against the democratic opposition. The same is generally true elsewhere. These "strategic" deployments of "soft power" never work, and wind up hurting our interests rather than advancing them.

Another aspect of these "soft power" deployments is the inevitable involvement of the American intelligence community in some form or other, engaging in covert operations with no real congressional oversight and without the knowledge or consent of the American people. This can lead to all kinds of abuses that inevitably impact on our domestic politics – an area where the CIA is supposedly forbidden from entering, although that has never been the case.

In the New York Times piece on the Belarussian operation, the reporter describes a meeting attended by Olson and Belarussian dissidents as "a meeting of the freedom industry," a telling description because that’s exactly what it is: an industry, one in which Olson is a player. It’s the "regime change" industry that has flourished in this country ever since the start of the cold war. The necons played a key role in staffing the organizations and semi-official front groups into which billions of our tax dollar flowed: Reagan gave the National Endowment for Democracy to them as a sort of playground, where they were out of the way and free to think they had some real influence on the administration. In the post-cold war world, the NED took on added importance – and more tax dollars – as the US tried to cash in on the Soviet collapse by sponsoring "color revolutions" throughout the former Soviet bloc. It didn’t matter that the very reason for launching these cold war institutions was no longer in existence: as one needn’t explain to a Ron Paul supporter, government programs have a life of their own, and killing them is akin to driving a stake through the heart of a vampire – a difficult and often impossible feat.

So we have a major player in the "regime change" industry as a "senior advisor" to the Paul campaign: and not only that but a pedagogical relationship between Olson and Rand Paul. The latter has presumably learned from the former why draconian sanctions on Iran – deemed an "act of war" by his father – are a good idea and ought to be supported. Paul recently joined ninety-nine other similarly clueless US Senators in voting "aye" on what is in effect an economic blockade against Iran.
