When The MSM Does Not Ignore Ron Paul

In my previous post, I pointed out the way the mainstream media is attempting to ignore Ron Paul or when they do mention his polling numbers, the polls themselves become suspect.  In this post, I will point out that the only thing worse than the mainstream media ignoring Ron Paul is when it decides not to ignore him but instead attempts to denegrate, or ridicule his views.  What’s interesting is that the rivalry that exists between Fox and CNN is put aside as they find the most contraversial Ron Paul statements made during an interview by their competitors and attempt to put him in the position of either defending what’s presented as an outrageous statement, denying it, or admitting that he didn’t mean it.  

The first two videos below illustrate one example of the above tag team strategy used by Fox and CNN.  The last three videos illustrate that Ron Paul knew what he was talking about in the first two videos.  


Chris Wallace (Fox News) interviewing Ron Paul on FEMA in conjunction with hurricane Irene on the Eastern Seaboard asks a series of questions predicated on the premise that Ron Paul’s views are radical, extreme and certainly not mainstream.


Wolf Blitzer (CNN) attempts to get a negative sound bite against Ron Paul from governor O’Malley of Maryland based on Ron Paul’s previous comments about how FEMA is a disaster.  When O’Malley refuses to take the bait and reminds Blitzer to concentrate on the storm and forget politics for a while, Blitzer is shown to be a biased commentator rather than dispassionate news reporter.  Not to worry though, Wolf isn’t ashamed.  When you have no pride in your profession, you don’t worry about shame.


Fox News contemporaneously reporting during and shortly after Hurricane Katrina that devastated New Orleans.  Near the end of this video, a member of Oath Keepers explains why there is a need to get military, as well as, local, state and federal law enforcement officials to swear to obey their oaths to the constitution rather than simply obey a superiors orders when they are clearly unconstitutional.


Wolf Blitzer must have missed the following CNN documentary in which they enumerate and illustrate detail after detail to document FEMA’s irrational, almost unimaginable fraud, waste and symbiotic nature of the corporatism that defines business/government partnerships.
FEMA Waste – part 1.

FEMA Waste – part 2


IN 2012 IT’S RON PAUL
OR
NOBODY AT ALL

In 2012 it’s RON PAUL or NOBODY AT ALL

Message to the GOP leadership and to their willing accomplices in the media:

In 2012, it’s RON PAUL or NOBODY AT ALL.

If the GOP thinks the Republican Party can regain the White House, it had better start recognizing and supporting the candidacy of Congressman, Doctor Ron Paul right now and start to honestly present the history and voting records of his big government, mainstream, media favorite opponents for what they are… regardless of the fact that some of them will come off looking like idiots, corporate shills, socialists and uninformed Tea Party imposters.

The following videos are presented for the simple purpose of illustrating that Ron Paul has been right for AT LEAST 23 years.  The first two videos were recorded in 1988 when Ron Paul ran for the office of president as the Libertarian Party candidate.  Notice that he explains what was going on back then and predicted EXACTLY what the result would be.

Part 1 – 1988 Libertarian Party Presidential Nominee Ron Paul interview.

Part 2 – 1988 Libertarian Party Presidential Nominee Ron Paul interview.

In this video we see that a mainstream media network isn’t happy that it inadvertently allowed Ron Paul’s accurate message to be aired and potentially heard by the American public.

John Stewart hosts a show on the comedy channel.  Even so, it’s possibly the least biased news outlet around.  In the following video, he exposes the blatent bias that exists on a variety of the so-called “legitimate” news channels.

If you don’t want to see Obama re-elected…  All Independents including libertarian Party, Green Party, Constitution Party members as well as freedom loving Republicans and Democrats need to register as Republicans to insure that Ron Paul becomes the GOP nominee and INSURE that either Ron Paul or Barack Obama will be the next president.

Personally;  If Ron Paul doesn’t win in 2012, I don’t think it matters who wins.

LMAO

I hear you

Since the New York Times doesn’t allow me to mirror one of their articles, you’ll have to settle for THIS LINK to their article entitled: U.S. Wants To Make It Easier To Wiretap The Internet.

I’m laughing because me and millions more like me have old copies of PGP as well as programming languages capable of creating encryptions that are difficult if not practically impossible to decrypt.  Not only that, but there are countless ways to pass information between two (or more) people with almost complete confidence that no one will ever discover the encryption medium, or even discover that there is an encryption medium.

First it was an “Internet Kill Switch” and now that they’ve (apparently) discovered that such a thing would be more difficult than keeping our neighbors to the South from visiting us at will, they think they can eavesdrop on it.

Really.  You just have to laugh at these clowns.

Next thing you know, they’ll be appropriating money to build ID Cards that can’t be counterfeited.  Oh wait…

History Of US Currency Defaults

Horror!  Tremble in fear for the possibility of (another) currency default.

We never learn, do we?

Cower in terror at the thought of Moody’s downgrading US currency.

What we really ought to do is reflect on past defaults and try to imagine the really horrible consequence of failing to stop this counterfeiting FED enterprise in it’s tracks right now before it’s too late to prevent our winding up like the Weimar Republic.

In it’s customary fashion, Mises.Org describes US currency default history.

I need to do some more studying.  How about you?
