Well, I'm unfamiliar with AP.

Well, I'm unfamiliar with AP. But it's not too difficult to get some clues on the relatively "standard" practices of the profession... (read: per Wall Street's "standards", anyway)

Is it? I didn't even need to go past the first name listed... initials "M. J.":

Is he gossiping? Is he slandering? Or just pointing out facts?

Funny, for some strange reason, I don't think so (about gossip or slander). I rather take it that, he, too, might be getting tired of the ambient hypocrisy.

As for reasonably good morality - an euphemism (if not an excellent one) - I'll stick to Dr. Ron Paul, thank you.

I'll leave AP have fun with their masters, as it's likely they were perfectly fine with the game of cronyism not so long ago.

Ah, well, the wind turns, sometimes... Doesn't it?

Doug Wead is weird

His logic is as usual flawed. We should stick up for the AP because they might give Rand good coverage in the future if they do??

Stay out of entangling alliances. We will never be free if there is faith in the integrity of the Rothschild owned AP, even if they are nice to rand. We won't be free when the AP is nice to us, we will be free when no one believes the AP.

Stay out of it and let them eat themselves.

Without addressing your

Without addressing your assertion that Doug Wead is weird, I'll just say that "entangling alliances" refers to countries, not individuals.

and to specify

we are all weird, but doug wead is weird in one of those deceitful evil ways.

But to address your statement, not when I say it. I think that sentiment can be broken down to small units than countries.

CAUTION:

Reporters are easily replaced. Those who do not comply will be replaced with those who will and most will be forgotten yet again.

This is another tactic where they give you a delicious bone to chew, you forgive/forget/sympathize, and they revert back to the same tactics used over and over again the last 120 years.

It is time to stand and demand, not only with Rand, but on your own. Hopefully, for this movement and Liberty, that little rhyme will stick.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

True that

I assumed that we might be graced with one chance to publicly use their voices to proclaim Ron Paul's, and Liberties voice to the masses. After that, they would likely be " turned out " by the Elite, in fact I think we count make book on that happening.

Irony

Irony describes it, but is there wisdom is being forgiving in how we openly discuss this issue?

Let me clarify, the journalistic community is at present reeling over the what they view as a betrayal by the administration: is this not then an opportune time to turn their hearts from adversity to favorability towards us?
For we have now a commonality ( that being we've both been abused by tyranny), between them and us that did not prior exist, is it then not more wise to temper our speaking towards them to express kindness and not indignation for past wrongs?
I think, that we should in our blogs and public speakings make no mention of " them getting theirs ", or " you deserved it ", rather we should patiently point out that our way, limited and well overseen Government, is the only way to insure they don't go through this yet again.
If we can convert but a tenth part of these voices, then thousands who only listen to them at present via their journalism might also become persuaded to join themselves to Liberty, and through them family members, and so onwards. We can do far greater a work of restoration of freedom by graciously and gladly being forgiving than we ever might hope too by expressing our self justification at their expense.

Just some words of wisdom, let each see if it makes common sense to themselves as we will.

God Bless

I agree

Sometimes people have to get bitten by their own follies in order to understand the values of "rules" that are set in place. These journalists are not realizing that they can't trust the "king" whom they've favored. Now is the perfect time to hold up the rights of the press and encourage them to support freedom and the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and reject any further corruption. If they're not given a light to follow, they'll have to fall back on what they know: old habits, including continuing the corruption.

There is great wisdom in praying for one's enemies, that their hearts would be changed. It's far, far better that these people change and become allies, than for them to be laughed at and mocked.

As human beings, they have inalienable rights. If we truly believe that, we ought to be standing up for their rights just as much as the rights of anyone else.

Yes, irony but also...

karma.

Blowback is a form of karma.

The AP fostered a disassociation of truth in media and failed journalistic integrity when it ignored the Ron Paul "revolution" in this country and tried to sell romnie, sanitorum, Bachmann, the Grinch, McCain, and cain to the people.

This is what they get for starting/perpetuating/continuing the lies. I hope they burn in hell!

We, the people get stronger with or without them. We have alternative sources for the truth.

This is just like the gop. I am NOT going to them. They are coming to me or they can rot in the dustbin of history.

Rob, It is easy to have that

Rob, It is easy to have that feeling but what would Ron Paul do?
I feel we must treat and address even the most evil among the opposition to liberty as simply asleep or uneducated. Accuastions and condemnations will not win them over or get them to advocate to their network of people around them if we are perceived as unwelcoming or condemning of them in their previous sleeping life.

In the end the evil will become the frustrated and the sleeping will wake to welcoming arms and hearts in liberty.

Remember, what would Ron Paul do when you feel the anger sharks swimming in your head.

Thank you for your kind response, fyi2day.

And thank you for calling me by my name:)

My stance is that I have VERY LITTLE belief that we can "deal" with these folks. They are NOT going to change and will continue to undermine us until we do as Andy Jackson did...call them what they are, "a den of vipers" and we MUST rout them out!

When we can single them out I

When we can single them out I completely agree. But we must shy from grouping the unknowing with them. That is our in to undermine them. They become our whistle blowers and saboteurs. I love Andy!!! He killed the bank once. we can do it again!!! Change the hearts and minds of the support structure and we win. The Commys know this and we should too. Tactic is the same though our message is undeniable. Freedom and Liberty

Sad.

You are ruled by your passions in this.
The rest I deleted because you too deserve my best effort to understand. If you already read my prior, forgive me, if not then all the better for I spoke as a fool.

You are 100% correct.

Which is why I changed the content of my comment above, because I was wrong in what I HAD SAID, so I took action to correct myself.
I saw my wrong by reading your reply to him. Thank you.

I AM Superior!

Because my fight lies with the Constitution and TRUTH. Let the chips fall where they may.

I AM Superior because my motives are NOT for the hidden, the secretive, the few. My fight is for individual Liberty and I WILL fight to destroy those that seek to undermine it. In that respect, I AM Superior.

I don't have to go "off" on you. You have chosen your path. As for a battle, I don't see you fighting anything. I see you as being who you are...steadfast (not moving forward).

Peace be with you on your path.

Peace to you as well.
I changed my comment, because I too spoke from my passions.
I hold us, that is those who truely love our country up to a very high standard, forgetting how easily I fall short of it myself.
Again, I ask, please forgive my harsh words towards you. You are far more gracious to me than I deserved already.

Ps. And Stēkō, is steadfast in Koine Greek, it is an expression of the concept of " a steadfast growth, and purposed movement towards a specific desired goal to be achieved in the future but not realized in the present "
An applicable word in today's English might be " trudge ", that is to " walk with intent and purpose ", though today's English is woeful in describing concepts in singular words, which is why I use Stēkō, because Steadfast does not convey the entirety of what or whom I am.
I also frequently use the Koine Greek word/ concept " Parrēsia ", which is " to speak boldly, consistently themed and long presented voice, openly proclaiming, speaking over the din or canopy of noise loudly, to proclaim "

Boyz Boyz!!! There will be a

Boyz Boyz!!! There will be a time for fighting (real fighting I fear) Now is the time to educate in love. We will need everyone when it starts and no one will be allowed to sleep then. We need to keep piercing the Public School indoctrination and Controlled Media. It is working. Look how far we have come since just 2008.

Think how long RP has worked. Feed off his optimism of putting the 100 years of Fed Reserve tyranny the 30 years he has fought and where we are since 2008 in perspective. We should all be excited and know momentum is on our side. Look at the recent frustration and lashing out by TPTB. They see us coming.

“Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government take care of him better take a closer look at the American Indian.” ― Henry Ford.

I agree and disagree

We need to point out their past injustices so they are not repeated. That is what the White House is saying ( it is all they are saying) when they offend us with "What ;difference does it make " or It is "irrelevant" and we need to make sure it doesn't happen again...blah blah.. blah I agree that the press will become allies from injustice and loss of liberty now because of what they have experience. So it isn't really about come-up-ins or retribution, but more of a join the "ban wagon, help us and maybe we can prevent it from getting even worse...

Maybe the worker bee

Maybe the worker bee reporters that were truly sleeping, but remember the elite monopoly is their boss and they will have to face that first. Don't be surprised to see some of them "Amber Lyoned" and even more settled into their chains even with the new knowledge. I do not see a lot integrity in journalism. I believe it has been "educated" out of them.

Sure, that works

Sure, that works if the order in which we proceed is at first one that seems welcoming to their eyes and ears.
No one however likes to be browbeaten, and allying oneself to those who vilify you seems unlikely not to mention foolish.

Your point is going to fall on a lot of deaf ears

sadly, this movement is largely akin to Augusta National Golf Club. It is a mystery how you can ever become a member -and once you are - it seems the job to point out why nobody else is worthy - LOL.

For the record - I agree with you. Kicking someone in the face may make you feel better - but it sure the hell isn't going to wake them up like some believe. Unfortunately it takes a big person to reach down and lend a prior enemy a hand. For me, if they take my hand - I may gain an ally. If they spurn my hand - I am no worse off - and perhaps better, for now my consious is clear.

For all the bravado and talk, those who are afraid to offer that hand are afraid of many things - mostly the perception they are suckers, but also the feeling of being unimportant.

EXACTLY ,

Wow, that's exactly what I said, only you are much more clear.
How about being my proof reader? I jest, lol.

Thank you.

NOT

If you do the leading and they are forced to follow.

Understood

But force never played a part in my comment. But I agree with your intentions, we have no real means of compelling them anyway.
And should they deny the truth, that Governmental tyranny effects us all in that they won't use their voices for truth, then let them suffer the results of their prior guilt in complicity with Government by raising our voices against them.
We should offer them ONE chance to be right, after that let the chips fall where they may.
