The Commission on Presidential Debates is a Conspiracy!

Did you watch the “3rd Party” Presidential debate last year that was hosted by Free and Equal Elections Foundation? The one in Chicago that was moderated by Larry King and watched by an estimated 20 million people? Did you know that debate and the one that followed it were put together on the fly by Christina Tobin and a very small team of people with the simplest of plans?

Our plan was - to A. Get as many cameras there as possible, and B. Line up as many alternative media outlets and organizations as sponsors to help us get the word out there. And it worked! Enough people watched them that it was one of the top trends on twitter the night of the first debate and the next day, and Jimmy Kimmel made fun of us while Lawrence O’Donnell on MSNBC stated that 3rd party candidates deserved a spot in the national conversation after he watched them, and we were inundated with foreign media reporters wanting to talk to Christina Tobin who previously had no idea there were anything but Democrats and Republicans in America.

Ever so minutely we nudged the national conversation and in a big way we demonstrated that there is a demand for 3rd party candidates and the answers they offer to our nations biggest problems that we weren’t hearing from Obama, Romney and company…

I had the idea that those debates had the potential to be game changers while listening to an attorney talk about how he was going to open the presidential debates via a lawsuit, and I listened to Judge Jim Gray talk about the very same thing recently – I respect you greatly Judge, but I’ve heard of 3rd party lawsuit attempts for as long as I’ve been voting when I turned 18. I’m 40 now, and it’s time to try something different.

We put those 3rd party 2012 debates together in a few months – and now we have a few years to create something truly game changing in 2016.

1. Free and Equal - http://freeandequal.org/?v=1 - is hosting events that will keep the Free and Equal name out there in the public via earned media (local and national) and will both build awareness and serve as a platform to help build interest in our 2016 debates. As we make our case in as many states as possible between now and 2016, not only will be making more people aware of Free and Equal Elections Foundation, the CPD and our flawed electoral system and helping them craft local solutions, we’ll be building our organization of F&E state caucus leaders. We plan on asking these state leaders to go to their local MSM TV and radio networks in 2016 to ask that they also broadcast our debates.

2. In the summer of 2012 a handful of Gary Johnson supporters were able to get through to 2 companies and 1 organization (Phillips, BBH New York and the YWCA) that had been sponsors of the CPD’s debates and educate them about their debates being closed. We were late on the ball in trying to bring them on as sponsors of our debates in 2012, but we plan on really promoting this approach to our supporters in 2016 in starving the CPD of their sponsorship dollars, and doing all we can to welcome these companies and organizations on as sponsors of our debates. If we can get just one of these companies to sponsor us, it will create an opportunity for a huge national news story.

3. A Liberty TV Network - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7fITwuzPoM - This is a real game changer and of paramount importance if we are going to challenge the status quo and stand our ground when the pushback comes from the MSM - and it will come -

4. Hosting our debates in LA and NYC. We got lucky with Ora.tv helping us bring Larry King in to moderate our Chicago debate, we weren’t so lucky in DC. While Thom Hartmann is well known, he’s not nearly as big as the names who were interested in moderating our 2nd debate had we been in LA or NYC. Larry King generated incredible amounts of press for us, and we plan on bringing in more names the entire country knows and cameras can’t help but follow to moderate our debates in 2016.

5. Two tiers of sponsors. Our second tier sponsors will expand on the 57 media and organization sponsors we had for our 2012 debates. These sponsors paid nothing, but reported on the debates, a number of them interviewed Christina Tobin and they really helped us spread word of them. Our first tier sponsors are going to be a real game changer - we’re looking to raise at least 20 million dollars, enabling us to then take that money to the major networks to run promotional ads and getting at least one of them to air our debates on top of the networks that carried them in 2012. (Al Jazeera, RT America, CSPAN, Link TV, Free Speech TV and Ora.tv all carried our 2012 debates in addition to a large number of alternative media outlets)

6. At least 8 to 10 debates. We’ll start our 2016 debates late spring/early summer, and space them out so that the last one takes place right before the CPD’s debates start. Last year viewers could vote online for their favorites and we plan on expanding that to voting via text message, and one candidate going home after every debate until 2 are left at the last debate. The plan is to create demand for the candidates to be included in the CPD’s debates. If they don’t allow them to debate, the American people will become very aware of the fraud, and we’ll continue hosting debates with our two remaining candidates on the same nights the CPD’s debates are held and at the same time as well as a debate between their VP’s. We’ll ignore them just as they’ve ignored us. We also plan for a reality TV show that will showcase each of the candidates before the first debate airs.

Viva la r3volution! I hope to see you in Little Rock, Arkansas this coming June 22nd with Jesse Ventura, Ben Swann, Josh Tolley, Larry Pratt, Elizabeth Imus-Zero, Amber Lyon and more at the Verizon Arena!

Politics

in general is a conspiracy. It's a conspiracy to make people believe politicians can actually have any effect on their lives. Mainly it's a conspiracy to convince peace officers that they have duties other than keeping the peace.

Fortunately this condition is quite easily solved by reading the constitution, accepting the contract with a public servant regarding their oath of office... and ignoring all the crap these politicians try to make us believe.

I'm now soliciting confessions from those of you who have not THOROUGHLY studied the constitution - I'm not speaking of the once-over or that you have a couple gems from it memorized...

Yes, but..

You got to do politics...

Or politics is going to do you;)

Great post Zak! Hope you're doing well.

Been a while since we talked.

I watched those debates with interest. I fully support Free and Equal and I agree that the Presidential Debates Commission is a rotten, cheating organization.

When they were created they were headed by ex-officials from the DNC and RNC!

What does that tell you?

They have ONE GOAL and that is to keep any 3rd party OUT. Because when Ross Perot scared the crap out of both parties they united to never allow that to happen again.

Right after he ended his 2008 prsidential campaign, Ron Paul held a meeting the National Press Club in Washington and gave each 3rd party candidate who was going to be on the national ballots in November the opportunity to speak for 5 minutes.

Bob Barr stabbed him in the back by not showing after earlier agreeing to do so.

But the point is Dr. Paul gave them all press and visibility.

He also explained that the League of Women Voters used to run the presidential debates, but they lost that authority after the Ross Perot thing (Remember - Perot was a 3rd party candidate in the Reform Party).

BOTTOM LINE: ANY PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE WHO IS GOING TO BE ON THE MAJORITY OF NATIONAL BALLOTS iN NOVEMBER SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO DEBATE!

So keep up the good work Zak.

And Viva la R3volution indeed!

Use signs in the background at mainsteam candidate appearances

wherever they speak! Having people strategically placed in the background holding up signs promoting the events, in plain view of the mainstream news cameras, could be very effective. Perhaps you could even have a toll-free phone number on the sign where viewers could call to get more detailed recorded information about your debates. The recording could talk about the fact that the CFD is controlling the message and that Americans deserve to have a more open debate process. The message could then urge them to contact their local media to request that they air your events. This is cheap advertising and puts you squarely in the face of the establishment and their candidates. People will start to ask who you are and then hopefully ask the MS Candidates if they will be appearing in your debates.

Champion post Zak!

These are the golden nuggets of the Liberty Movement.

Experience sharing and best practices are key to continuing our decentralized success.

I just subscribed to JAG TV on YouTube; thanks for the link. Looks like it will be a great broadcast platform.
