Best New interview with Lawyers for Ron Paul

Part I:

Ian Snow Carpenter


I don't think people realize just how explosive the initiative of Lawyers For Ron Paul really is. That program was awesome, especially the second part. I'll post the links to both parts as the second didn't naturally show up at Youtube.

Part 1
Part 2

She's not....

...talking up Ron Paul, she's trying to destroy the credibility of the Republican party by reporting on the division within the party. She's pretending to serve up unbiased "reporting", but I detect an underlying tone of RP supporters' efforts being pointless. All I see is more MSM engineering.

I'm happy to see Dr Paul was on the Morning Joe show (if that's the correct name?) and I suppose right now any press is good press for RP, but I won't give any "news show" an ounce of credit unless I actually see Dr Paul on the show. You know he would happily go on the air for the media exposure and we all know he can dismantle anyone's manipulation and give em a strong dose of the TRUTH.

Put him on the show Maddow!!!


The neocons squash the revolution, people will be ready to start a real revolution. Protesting hasn't worked, we have tried voting and it didn't work. That leaves only one other option.

"But you must remember, my fellow-citizens, that eternal vigilance by the people is the price of liberty, and that you must pay the price if you wish to secure the blessing." - Andrew Jackson

I live in Nevada.

I've gone to two state conventions 2008 & 2012, served on the Platform Cmtes, attended State Central Cmte mtgs, & I've NEVER heard of Steve Schmidt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Who does he think he is?
In Nevada, he has no name among the RP crowd & we're the ones running the state party.

Talk about living in a dreamworld!
What drugs are YOU taking, Steve?
You need a reality pill real bad!!

Steve Schmidt is actually

Steve Schmidt is actually from California. He was John McCain's advisors in 2008 and was one of the main characters in the HBO TV movie "Game Change". He probably has retired in Nevada and just works as a guest pundit.

Thank you

I live on the northern side of the lake tahoe boarder in CA, and it's surreal how much local Ron Paul enthusiasm there is here, and was visible 5 years ago. I've been regretting not having transplanted myself 20 miles east in time to be try to be a NV delegate. I've been following the news and I know that Vegas is more of a strong hold then Reno, yet there is fertile ground for the Liberty movement in this area, but perhaps you already know that?

Press Release: Ron Paul Lawyers

Part I:

Ian Snow Carpenter

Its funny how this people

Its funny how this people forget we live in a republic, where everyone is supposed to be represented. We have been receiving this bs for so long, that people don't realize the implications of our country becoming solely democratic. The method should be applied to the process, but not its philosophy. We need to educate people on what the constitution stands for and not what the gov says it is.

Ron Paul for Freedom!!!

Knowledge is the currency of the Universe.-
Giorgio A. Tsoukalos

Ding Ding Ding! Wrong Mr. Schmidt. But thanks for playing!

Sure sounds as if Schmidt and Wead are reading from the
same political history book. "'s been tried before. It didn't work then and it won't work now..." uh-huh, uh-huh. There's so much wrong with that attitude I don't know where to begin.

Suffice it to say, when you have the public's hearts and minds, it means you don't need $1billion to run a campaign. Only panderers, good liars with good hair, and ones with horrendous records need gobs of money. What? The media's going to blackout RP in a head to head race against Obama? I wouldn't put it past RP to tell them he'd be glad to talk to them.... for free.

Then, when you have technology on your side, maybe that alone differentiates this lawsuit from all those in the past. That was a pretty damning little piece of evidence Rachel played, for starters.

Better luck next time, Mr. Schmidt. You're gonna need it.

"If you want something you've never had before, you have to do something you've never done before." Debra Medina

You're in for a rude awakening, steve

Oh, yes, we're all gonna be sorry when the establishment punishes us with their finances and doesn't send us money to keep our folks in positions of power. We'll be out by next year without their money according to this guy.

We didn't need their establishment money to take the power and we don't need it to stay there. Raising money is not an issue for the Liberty Movement.

" goes to where

" goes to where it's welcome. People, in neither party, want to donate money where it's gonna' be wasted, where it's not gonna' have any productive function."

That's a very telling statement considering how much banking and big elite monies go to Romney. I guess they see the American people and freedom as a waste of time.

We don't have to take over the WHOLE party...

That is right, fortunately for you and me and other RP Patriots, we do not have to win over the whole, not even half! We don not even have to win over over 1/3, although I sincerely believe 1/3rd is possible.

First lets ask, what is a "Win" for liberty? Answer: When two liberty candidates are the ONLY CHOICE come election time. That is a "win" because the outcome is always More Liberty.

Now that CHOICE can be inside the GOP races -- as in 5 people are running for State Governor inside the GOP and the winner will go against the winner DNC candidate. Only 1 of the 5 in the GOP race is a OUR R3VOLution Candidate. Are you with me?

Ok, imagine this. In the State of _____ the GOP has 5 candidates (the more the better for us). SINCE THE R3VOLUTION IS A NATIONWIDE FREEDOM MOVEMENT FOR LIBERTY, we all direct our attention and resources to THIS RACE. Activism, blogging, you-tubing, money bombs, signing, and most importantly door to door PC work.

Our LIBERTY GOP PC WORK that targets and identifies "OUR liberty leaning voters", "single or double or triple issue voters", "the personality voters", and importantly "Statist authoritarian voters" etc. THERE IS OUR POWER. THERE IS OUR POWER to get votes and raise money.

Come election day, we DO NOT help get the Statist authoritarian voter to the voting booth that day. We get our people to the voting booth. The bottom line is we make sure that our "unknown" GOP freedom candidate for the State Governors race BEATS the other 4 candidates. We bring our NATIONWIDE movement to bare on that local race. That is "flexing our muscle" and that is powerful.

Now the same is true for the 5 man DNC race. Same situation. Same action from us. Bring our nationwide liberty movement to bare on that local race.

And here is the "Win". When our liberty candidate from the GOP goes up against the liberty DNC candidate come election night. That is a BIG WIN for liberty, it matters little which candidate wins.

Notice that this is EXACTLY how the very small minority ideologues called liberal warhawks or conservative neocons always "Wins".

Notice further that we CAN DO THIS in congressional races and Senate Races. This is why showing our love to in her Congressional Race is so very important.--- sadly she just lost while everyone was yapping about a feel-good-about-myself-vote in november for Gary Johnson.

This is how we FLEX OUR MUSCLE in the r3VOLution! Don't get GJ distracted. We make Winners out of Congressional races, Senate races and State Governor Races. As I told GJ to his face, if he rand for New Mexico Senate race, the r3VOLution would be behind him all the way. But he cut some sort of deal with a neocon-israel firster wanting to be the Senator and promised (her?) that he would not run for the US Senate!!! We COULD have had Rand Paul joined by Senator Gary Johnson, think about that. 6 years of Senator Gary Johnson. And he is still widely popular in New Mexico. It could have been a big win for the r3VOLution. GJ chose to allow a neocon senator enter the US Senate for 6 years, for reasons that he could not explain straight to my face. Some silly "deal" and he must keep his "word" now. Why make such a "deal" in the first place is completely unexplained and unclear.

So, we do not have to win over the whole GOP or DNC, instead we need to stay a MOVEMENT. that does not get sucked back inside the LP.

You have seen the Tea Party movement get sucked into the GOP - and it died.

You are seeing the OWS movement get sucked into the DNC - and its dying fast.

Question: Are you going to allow the r3VOLution movement for liberty get sucked back into the LP?

FYI, I spent from 1980 thru 2004, my young and middle years, inside the LP and I have ZERO to show for it. Success for the libertarian message came when we took it outside of the LP. Inside, its just one big echo-chamber. It sounds all loud and important, but really you are just in a cave of your own digging.

In 2004 we Arizona libertarians and a big thanks to Ernie Hancock, took the freedom message OUTSIDE the Libertarian Party. Why? Its a "freedom car that won't start". But now, now that the r3VOLution is OUTSIDE the LP, and alive and well and full of energy, who needs who?

I submit to you to understand that our decentralize amorphous liberty MOVEMENT --outside of LP control --- is WHY we are thriving.

I submit to you and your brilliant sharp mind that the STRATEGY to infiltrate the 2-party duopoly is working for two really big reasons:

Access to their Database and Access to their "legitimate" debate Stage which is media controlled.

I submit to you that going BACK inside the LP, that is putting our energies, time and money there, means we loose precious time in the race to "go deep" inside the 2-party matrix.

Do you want the r3VOLution movement for liberty get sucked back into the LP? A simple yes or no can rest my fears.

MODS: If I post something, please don't change my title

or I will delete the whole post. If you want to say something, use the comments section and leave what I use as a title alone. Why did you add, "Paul insurgents seize control of State Republican parties"? This is not the first time this has happened. If my title was misleading or offensive, I can see the point, but to add your own commentary, that is not right. Use the comments section.

I agree Ralph Hornsby --

Also, if the mods do this, the variety wastes away and so does our complexity.

It reminds me of any city government's zoning board... its theses guys with their rules, codes, and design guidelines that make for a very very bland subdivision. The mods, if they take headline liberties, will make the DailyPaul suffer the same fate; blandness

would you rather it not be front paged?


"You underestimate the character of man." | "So be off now, and set about it." | Up for a game?

If you are a mod Jon, perhaps you can explain to me

what makes front page and what does not. After all these years, I still don't get it. I never get front page yet my post I think deserve them over others that don't. I read the guidelines in Handbook, still don't see it.

Actually, at this point, I think my essays are simply blackballed. That is, some mod doesn't like my work.

My ego does not care if something is front paged or not.

I would rather people look for things they want to read on their own. I've had plenty of my posts front paged and it doesn't matter one way or another to me. I always go to the "new" section and don't pay much attention to the front page.

Also, how many times do you see the readers ask the poster

to change the title because it is misleading, and the mods leave those alone, yet they want to add their own commentary to something that does not need one? There is video to this they can watch and see.

Thanks Rach. Why is Steve

Thanks Rach.

Why is Steve assuming the RP parties are dysfunctional... Just because they no longer endorse tyranny?

Yes, The Establishment Is Friggin Scared!

Ron Paul can still win and they friggin well know it..


How can I believe Steve?

Steve doesn't know much - he's been on 2 losing teams so far; McLame/Palin and now MSNBC.

That about says all you need to know about Steve.

reedr3v's picture

He's a hack who cannot see the RP r3VOLution

as any different from past factions in the Rep. Party. I think Maddow sees that there are some real differences and is wait and see mode.

Insurgents eh?

So now their calling Ron Paul supporters insurgents? Katt Williams has a good standup explaining the use of the word "insurgent" to describe people...

Unsuspecting, willing, blind, controllable herd
Pawns in a covert game conducted by hands we trust
Dominated, compliant and deceptable
Confident that we matter - we don't see that we're but dust.

-Meshuggah "Dancers To a Discordant System"

Glad someone else caught that.

Catch the wording of all this. "Infiltrate". RacHELL is not doing Ron Paul any favor, she is just continuing to plant how dangerous RP people are and how they need to all be sent to Gitmo. Wake up folks.

It would benefit us to

It would benefit us to understand her target audience is not us. She uses words the average MSM viewer sees as negative..."infiltrate", "insurgent", and chooses a guest that rips apart all of our accomplishments. Yet somehow this makes the front page, when real information like Adam interviewing Penny Freeman(a 10 year employee of Dr Paul) was ignored, buried, and/or erased.

I don't necessarily need a majority to agree with me, but it would warm my heart if people looked beyond the surface of how certain folks interpret and promote certain things, and consider the bigger picture.

Madcow is a vile human being hellbent on ridiculing liberty and anything that isn't leftist, who laughed about the death of innocent Palestinians on the air, and there are many posts far more worthy of the front page whether I like them or not. I'm just an individual with an opinion, but I believe it will resonate with others. Peace and liberty, my friends.

her main goal

I think her main goal, like the rest of MSNBC is to see Obama re-elected and, like you said, her target audience is not us but people who also want to see Obama re-elected.

The point of these Ron Paul spots are probably to show the GOP as being divided and in disarray - "oh, man, these guys are so divided we're gonna crush them in November."

That being said, who cares? I'd rather see these spots with that motivation than no spots on Ron Paul at all.

Liberty will win in the end and maybe the Movement will get many more supporters from this coverage, even if that's not their intent.

i've been meaning to speak

i've been meaning to speak with alex jones and others, but i need to tend to my garden, God willing, if i can have a garden. but there is a kid's camp where the illuminatti send their children, and rachel maddow was there. flo from progressive insurance was there as well.
