I was referring to TWO who aren't there anymore: Julian Sanchez and David Weigel, and the two who are: Matt Welch and Nick Gillespie, all of whom intentionally orchestrated the entire newsletters smear with Jamie Kirchick, TNR, and F*cker Carlson.
I've fleshed it out in previous posts so if interested you can probably track them down, for reference. But, the gist of it is that they played the 'independent 3rd party verifying all of Kirchick's assertions.' Making it seem like 'more than one source, thus the story must be true'- propaganda was the reality.
The four are also the reason why Lew Rockwell and even Murray Rothbard and Justin Raimondo's names were all cited by ReasonMag, and repeated and endlessly cited by moronic liberal sites, as well as the RINO sites.
It had NOTHING to do with the Doc, nor the Newsletters but much more to do with KOCHtopus vs. Mises.
They could've all helped us out. But instead of aiding the man who was introducing libertarianism to more people than CATO/Reason Faketarians could ever dream of, they decided because of long ongoing feud between Koch Bros' CATO/Reason vs. Mises, and because in their minds, the Auburn set are a whole bunch of pro-life anaracho-capitalist of 'disreputable' pedigree and not 'their' kind of libertarians, nor did they think they're cool enough to project the 'we are the world' Coca-Cola ad feel image to the masses; hence Nick Gillespie'c 'Happy Days'-era "Fanz" leather jacket. It's all petty, but not minor, especially now that the Kochs are sorta suing 'thyself' by suing Ed Crane to 'take back' the reins of "independent" CATO.
So it's doubly disgusting now that Matt Welch, a socialist liberal who hasn't got the slightest clue that NAP (Non-Aggression Principle) is really the cornerstone of libertarian thought, and furthermore, voluntarysm, is riding the Doc and R3VOL's coattails to sell their new book "Declaration of IndependenTS."
Frankly they sort of have the same attitude that Bob Barr had. Like an entitlement liberal he was actually incredulous at the thought that Dr. Paul wouldn't simply hand of over the reigns of the Freedom/Liberty/Patriot Movement that he's headed, built up by himself and close associates and dedicated hardcore supporters, just because Barr was there and slightly younger.
the f'ng arrogance of it all. still pisses me off just thinking about it. Frankly when Adam Kokesh reneged/retracted his endorsement of Bob Barr precisely because of his treachery against the Doc, that's when my respect for Adam shot through the roof, and looked upon him kindly ever since.
It's disgusting how it was those four who concocted this whole plan to in effect sink the 2008 campaign, were constantly on TV (you'll never see Lew on MSM, unlike the Beltarian set), first to float the rumor that it was Lew, Murray, and Justin who were the authors, WITHOUT any proof, in fact trying to malign Mises Institute with it all, to now acting like how they've always respected the Doc and the message.
That's why Brian Doherty is one of the few good ones, IMHO.
Besides, it's no secret that, that was one of the few reasons why there were rumors Brian wanted to leave Reason/CATO. If he did, Lew would welcome him with open arms.
