Pro-Big-Government Media Lying About Delegate Numbers

May 20, 2012

You also keep missing the point.

CNN was caught lying with its pants down about the delegate numbers.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=akUZvbHR5BA

It looks like the official Government-Corporate-Media complex just doesn’t know what to do with this story. No wonder the plutocrats have had to step in and save some of the Conformist Media in what appear to be acts of charity without good prospects for payback, one millionaire buying Time Magazine for one dollar, and Buffet’s companies snatching up 66 newspapers for fire sale prices. The Omaha tycoon a few years ago said newspapers were going to disappear soon. What’s up with that?

Maybe he figures he’ll get favorable consideration for his companies’ tax debt, and for permits and keep the IRS off my back please…..

It’s not just CNN. It looks like a blacklist on the story after story about what is going on in Republican Party conventions across the country at the local, county, and state levels.

“…Paul backers won 12 of 13 Republican National Convention delegate slots filled in balloting Saturday, May 19, at Rivers Edge Civic Center.

They might have taken all 13 seats if a Paul state delegate had not graciously conceded the final slot to Rep. Michele Bachmann….” Sounds like it means they could have kept her out of the delegate slate but conceded it to her.

So now 32 of Minnesota‘s 40 national delegates in August are committed to Paul. http://www.twincities.com/ci_20663278/ron-paul-backers-complete-weekend-sweep-minnesota

RP has clinched at least the five states needed to place his name in the running at first ballot (the way I understand it at least), and his delegates have already won delegate majorities in eleven states – eleven.

The Doublespeak Media is LYING when they say the Ron Paul campaign has given up, conceded, or quit campaigning. The official campaign has NOT given up, they have said the strategy is shifting to accumulating delegates where it counts and skipping primary beauty contests where the more massive banking money favors Romney. That money is also supporting Obama, but later for that.

It is evident that the campaign is managing expectations among Ron Paul supporters, while at the same time possibly making a show of being gracious to Romney.

But the truth is, the Ron Paul campaign has no more idea than Romney about how close the delegate count may favor Ron Paul when it comes to counting numbers at the national convention. They have no idea what the effect of all this is.

Plus:  neither the Romney campaign nor the Ron Paul campaign, neither Gingrich nor Santorum nor Bachmann, none of them knows for sure what the delegates for the “dropouts” will do, despite the “endorsements”.

The bottom line is, “it’s not over till the fat lady sings”, much more so than before.

I’m old enough to remember the floor fights at some of the party conventions in the 1950s and 1960s, and they were covered live by the three major national networks open gavel to final adjournment, and I remember being intrigued as a young boy and teenager watching them, including speeches on the floor for one candidate or another, then the announcements of the votes, the conclusion that no one had won, and then finally the cheering when one of them got the “magic number”.

Nothing wrong with that. But apparently somebody didn’t like it and they started making the whole thing a horse race in the time of primaries, and making sure the conventions would simply be the infomercial of the anointing of the selected one. Like in the words of the now disillusioned Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama “was selected before he was elected”.

Oklahoma GOP delegate describing an attack on a Ron Paul supporter:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvz5esPEEKg&feature=youtu.be

The Sergeant at Arms apparently removed the wrong guy at first but eventually was convinced and the attacker was removed…

The former state party officials apparently totally broke quite a number of their own rules to dictate the slate over the objection of the majority of the Republican Party delegates present, and simply announced the party boss slate as passed instead of doing the roll call vote as required by their own rules.

The media is cooperating in this obvious blatant farce merely by staying quiet. Have you noticed that there are a lot fewer interviews with Ron Paul ever since the Media Bosses Cartel declared Romney the “presumptive” nominee?

So why are the Old Guy party bosses so desperate?

Like Abraham Lincoln said once, you can’t fool all the people all of the time.

Besides, if nobody else knows, God does…

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.-Galatians 6:7

For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. -Luke 12:2

Somebody should ask Romney if he supports all the breaking of the rules…

 

Rumors of the demise of Ron Paul campaign blown away by Ron Paul gains in reality

URGENT – Rule 40 Explains Ron Paul and Voter Fraud! – YouTube

You cannot believe what the Old Media tells you about the Republican nomination campaign or Ron Paul.

Like Josh says, if Ron Paul didn’t have any chance, they would not be talking about him.

See what he has to say at the following link, it’s below his picture:

http://m.sodahead.com/united-states/santorum-supporter—visits-ron-paul-rally-ft-worth-texas—shares-his-reaction/question-2587931/

Over the years I have been to more political rallies, events, forums,
roundtables, discussion groups, debates and whatever than I care to
remember. While a whole range of adjectives from boring to thrilling
could be used to describe these events, I have never before been moved
to use contradictory metaphors for the same event. Attending a Ron Paul
campaign rally is a singularly unique experience. I have never seen
anything like it before. Perhaps phenomenal is the word that comes
closest in accuracy, not in the ordinary “awesome” sense, but in the
other-worldly, spatiotemporal sense.

 

Rivals and “conservative” talk show hosts are lying about Ron Paul’s straw poll wins

February 15, 2012

Here again, there is another lie repeated:

Santorum: ‘It’s a two-person race’ – Washington Times:
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/feb/12/santorum-country-needs-richie-cunningham/

They’re saying that the Ron Paul campaign is paying for people’s tickets to vote in straw poll contests like the one last year at CPAC, the California Young Republicans, and a great number of other such polls.

This is just a lie, because the bulk of Ron Paul‘s numbers “on the ground” and in events like that come from the enthusiastic support of folks who are just tired of the same slop, all packaged with pretty brand names. They open up the other candidates’ products and get the same slop they always got, but they open up Ron Paul’s and it’s the genuine real McCoy.

Ron Paul gets one of his strongest results so far, and the count still might beat Romney’s

February 12, 2012

“Breakthrough in Maine! Ron Paul exceeds expectations yet again”:
http://www.ronpaul.com/2012-02-11/ron-paul-comes-in-a-strong-second-in-maine-with-36/

It looks the party bosses have “officially” declared Romney the winner in Maine, even though not all the votes are counted from all the precincts, and the (heh heh) “unofficial” actual count will still change with the pending votes.

And it’s a virtual tie. But is it? Romney only has 194 votes on Ron Paul so far with 83.7% of precincts reporting.

Washington County (pop. 32,856) postponed its caucuses due to the threat of 1-3″ of snow (which did not materialize). They will be voting next Saturday. However, Maine GOP Executive Director Michael Quatrano announced that the official results are permanent and will not be changed when the new votes come in.

Washington County GOP Chairman Chris Gardner objected, saying he had known his county’s tally wouldn’t be included in Saturday’s announcement but didn’t realize it wouldn’t be counted at all. He said he had called state party leaders and “expressed my complete and utter dismay.”

Some have called Washington County a “Ron Paul stronghold” that could have propelled Ron Paul to a Maine victory. Ron Paul campaign chairman Jesse Benton suggested that the Romney campaign was involved in the cancellation of the caucus as Paul’s campaign had expected to do well: “It’s not completely insidious, but they knew we were going to swamp it up there.”

In 2008 Ron Paul got 8 out of 113 votes (7%) while Mitt Romney received 40 out of 113 votes (35%) in the county. If Romney had remained stagnant at 40 votes and Ron Paul had received an additional 227 votes (+ in Washington County, Paul would have won Maine.

Ron Paul campaign suing the fraudulent anti-Huntsman ad is a win-win for Ron Paul’s message

“Under current law” he wins, if the courts follow the law.

There are none so blind as those who can’t see “that Ron Paul has any legitimate case”.

#1. The persons that posted that video obviously intended for it to slander Ron Paul’s good name by making it look like his campaign created it, by the names they used at the end, PLUS the author’s comment on the web site itself saying that “the campaign” had requested they not divulge any identifying information.

#2. The very first external reference back to that video was on the Huntsman campaign web site, within scant seconds of its posting on youtube.

#3. The damages are real, as the usual guilty parties in the Big Money Media figures pushed it as something from the Ron Paul campaign.

#4. The fact that they are suing based on sufficient grounds to uncover the anonymous authors of this libelous subterfuge, is already a win-win for the Ron Paul campaign, in the real world, because
(a) it demonstrates that it was not the Ron Paul campaign that posted this video, but that
…(b) they also consider it a despicable and legally actionable slander against what his message stands for, and that
…(c) it shows that somebody was out to intentionally smear the campaign, the message, and the man in an illegal and actionable way
…(c) other “fellows of the baser sort” that might consider another such subterfuge should beware that they could be hit up for damages, whether it is another candidate’s supporters, or media figure.
