    Corporate Media Officially Stops Covering Paul Campaign

    Only one news organization has an “embed” reporter covering Paul full time


    Steve Watson
    Infowars.com
    March 1, 2012




    GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul and his supporters have long complained that the establishment media deliberately operates a blackout when it comes to Paul’s campaign, a claim that has been verified time and time again.

    Now yet more evidence has emerged that highlights the level to which the media is purposefully sidelining the Libertarian Congressman.

    As Dylan Byers of Politico reports, NBC News is the only media organization that still has a reporter covering Ron Paul full-time.

    With only four candidates remaining in the race for the GOP nomination, with Super Tuesday looming, and with the Republican national convention just six months away, you would think that mainstream media organizations would have dispatched at least one reporter to cover each of the candidates campaigns.

    Not so for Ron Paul, however.

    “I’m the only dedicated embed consistently covering Ron Paul,” NBC’s Anthony Terrell has declared.


    “CBS & Fox occasionally send someone to events, they were in Michigan, but weren’t in Washington State last week.” Terrell wrote in an email.

    Terell also noted that AP reporter Beth Fouhy was also covering Paul up until recently but was re-assigned, making him the only reporter left following Paul on a full time basis.

    It is clear that Paul is staying in the race. The Congressman is steadily picking up delegates, and reporters and GOP strategists know that Paul will likely play a major role in the outcome of the nomination process and the convention itself, yet the media continues to ignore his campaign.

    Letter of Warning to the GOP

    Submitted by KingDiz on Fri, 03/02/2012 - 04:31
    Ron Paul 2012

    ** I'd like to preface this to the Daily Paul crowd by saying that this was written directly to neo-cons who don't actually realize that they're neo-cons and that while some here might not relate to my opinions or share my journey to enlightenment, I feel that many will. **

    I'm sick of my only option being which establishment candidate can you stomach the most? How many times will we have to say "I don't really like any of them, but..." and vote right down party line. I'm 29. I voted for the "compassionate conservative" Bush in 2000 because he was the republican. I defended the hell out of him and voted for him again in 2004, obviously, because he was the republican. Same in '08. I naively wanted Romney, but voted McCain (like there is any difference) so I could help the team win.

    I listened to Rush and Levin and Glenn. I watched Foxnews and only Foxnews, regularly. I’d brag about how “I don’t watch the mainstream media” unable to see the irony that Fox has more viewers than every other cable news channel combined. I would go to Drudge multiple times daily and keep up with only the news cycle that he peddled. I was informed. I knew I was informed. Liberals know nothing, liberals hate and are destroying this country, liberals don't care about patriotism OR the constitution OR freedom, blah, blah, blah. While that's true, they don't. I was never looking at the other side of the same coin. Why hadn’t they informed me of the path of destruction, debt, and disregard for our Constitution that the “conservative” majority Congress and Bush had actively been undertaking for the last two decades? Why don’t they ever talk about how deficit spending really started under Reagan, ramped up with Clinton, and then exploded with Bush? And why wasn’t I smart enough to see through it?

    The reason is that the "conservative" party was hijacked long before many of us were ever born and we've never gotten a chance to truly appreciate or learn about what REAL conservatism is. We get accustomed to getting our news from comfortable sources. Sources that reinforce our beliefs, regardless of whether or not they are right. Here’s something everyone should know: Ron Paul is the last remnant of what, for the majority of our nation's history, was considered conservative.

    You hear Rush or Levin say "neo-cons" and immediately you think of the David Frums or David Brooks or Bill Kristols. But in reality, they don’t even realize that they should be looking in the mirror. It’s every program on Fox; it’s all the talk radio personalities "conservatives" adore as these brilliant beacons of truth and knowledge. Hannity is one of the most vocal with his, "I'm not a republican, I'm a conservative." Whether its self-delusion or just ignorance, I couldn't tell you. Do I think these guys lack intelligence? Absolutely not. They have accrued a lifetime of knowledge and on many subjects, they are spot on. The problem is that very often they are not right and their influence is so pervasive that many people blindly follow them regardless. Myself included for a long time.

    My awakening came just last spring when I got into an argument over our foreign policy. I rattled off all the talking points I had come to know as truth. "The world needs us to keep them safe. They might act like they hate us, but we'll see who they call when they need help. The terrorists attacked us for our freedom, our ideals, our culture, etc." It wasn't until I decided to open a book to better educate myself on why I believed, what I believed, that I realized how misinformed I had been. Have you ever said, "I like Ron Paul, except for his foreign policy?" I did too, frequently. If you ask the average GOP voter to describe RP's foreign policy in one word the most frequent responses would be "crazy" “dangerous” or "isolationist."

    How could a guy so spot on about economic and domestic policy be so wrong on foreign policy? To better understand this I decided to read his book The Revolution: A Manifesto and got to see his views straight from his pen, without the bias.

    Consider my amazement when he tried to defend his positions by quoting from the founding fathers: Washington, Jefferson, and Adams. Wait…what? That can’t be. These same founding fathers that we hold in such high esteem shared the same foreign policy views as “crazy, isolationist” Ron Paul? It couldn’t be, yet it was staring me right in the face. If you don’t believe me, look it up for yourself. I read on. He considered himself not an isolationist, but a noninterventionist. If you’re anything like I was, you’re probably thinking, what’s the difference?

    Consider this quote:
    “It is easy to dismiss the noninterventionist view as the quaint aspiration of men who lived in a less complicated world, but it’s not so easy to demonstrate how current policies serve any national interest at all. Perhaps an honest examination of the history of American interventionism in the twentieth century, from Korea to Kosovo to the Middle East, would reveal that the Founding Fathers foresaw more than we think.

    Anyone who advocates the noninterventionist foreign policy of the Founding Fathers can expect to be derided as an isolationist. I myself have never been an isolationist. I favor the exact opposite of isolation: diplomacy, free trade, and freedom of travel. The real isolationists are those who impose sanctions and embargoes on countries and peoples across the globe because they disagree with the internal and foreign policies of their leaders. The real isolationists are those who choose to use force overseas to promote democracy, rather than seeking change through diplomacy, engagement, and by setting a positive example. The real isolationists are those who isolate their country in the court of world opinion by pursuing needless belligerence and war that have nothing to do with legitimate national security concerns.”
    That was enlightening truth straight from the mind of Ron Paul. Have any of you ever heard his foreign policy presented like that? I hadn’t. If you have and still consider him nuts, than I’m sorry I’ve wasted your time and you can just quit reading because I doubt anything else I can say will sway you. When you understand that though and really think about it, it’s no wonder the soldiers overwhelmingly support him, receiving five times the military donations as every other candidate combined. Unlike EVERY OTHER candidate who are all bankrolled by giant corporations and Wall Street, Ron Paul’s top 3 donors come from individuals in the US Army, US Air Force, and US Navy. Maybe instead of throwing that yellow ribbon on the back of your car, you actually listen to and support the troops. You know those same troops who support Ron Paul. Its sad how those who rail on about the injustices and dangers of governmental intervention in our country, fail to even question when we pursue the same actions overseas.

    After understanding his views and finding myself agreeing with them, I decided to consider the whole package. Here we have a candidate who went to Washington D.C. having already served a lifetime in the private sector as an OB/GYN. Spurred to action by a deep understanding of history, our Constitution and sound economic policy and foreseeing the dangers inherent in the direction the country was headed, set out to make a difference. His principles were grounded in the wisdom of the Founding Fathers and knowledge of Austrian Economics. It’s easy to be consistent when you know what you believe in and have a framework on which you base your decisions, the Constitution. He never once voted to raise taxes, never once voted for an unbalanced budget, never once voted for anything he wasn’t expressly permitted to by his oath of office to that founding document.

    There’s a reason he is never attacked on his record, it’s because they can’t. It’s flawless and purely consistent. There’s a reason he was the lone no vote in congress, over and over again, on bill after bill. He didn’t have the authority. Imagine how much integrity and personal courage it took to take that stand, time and time again, all the while knowing he was going to be labeled a kook or unpatriotic because of it. Imagine the patience of this man, surrounded by the cesspool of corrupt, ignorant, opportunists in politics only for the fame and fortune, shining the beacon of individual liberty and steadfastly moving onward converting followers’ one person at a time. They say that once you become a Ron Paul supporter, you’re a supporter for life. I believe that to be true. The message of true liberty, once understood, is too powerful.

    It’s because of Dr. Ron Paul that for the first time in my life I’ve donated politically, volunteered for a campaign, sought to educate myself more fully on economics, history, the Constitution, the dangers of the Federal Reserve and interventionism (foreign and domestic) and why I believe what I believe. Finally, I’ve got a candidate that I want to vote for; I’m excited to vote for and will do what I can to inspire others to vote for. That’s why myself and millions like me will be voting for Ron Paul and no one else. The GOP can once again nominate whatever puppet, establishment candidate, they’d like. And when Obama wins re-election, you can all stand around scratching your heads and pondering why, but just remember that I tried to warn you.

    Paul Campaign: GOP Insiders Engaging In “Shenanigans” To Prevent Congressman Winning

    Points To “Substantial Irregularities” In Delegate Appointments

    Steve Watson
    Infowars.com
    March 2, 2012



    The Ron Paul 2012 campaign has officially complained of “substantial irregularities” in the appointment of delegates in a major Washington County.

    In a letter to GOP leaders in Washington, the Paul campaign says it is suspicious of the way that precinct-committee officers (PCOs) are being selected in King County, which covers 2,600 precincts.

    The Paul campaign suggested King County GOP Chairwoman Lori Sotelo may have engaged in “shenanigans” and may have violated party rules in appointing PCOs after the December deadline, claims that Sotelo denies.

    Campaign lawyer David Warrington intimates that the GOP establishment may be attempting to prevent Paul from winning the caucuses by appointing anti-Paul activists as PCOs.

    Warrington’s letter also notes that the King County GOP has refused to make the list of appointed PCOs public.

    PCOs have the responsibility of running caucuses and as such are automatically appointed as delegates to the county and legislative-district conventions, which in turn make decisions on the allocation of Washington’s 43 delegates to the Republican National Convention.

    As has been well documented, the Paul campaign is focusing on this aspect of the caucuses, rather than the so called “beauty contest” straw polls, much lauded by the media.

    “Should this blatant attempt to corrupt the process continue in King County, or anywhere else, the Paul Campaign will pursue all of the legal remedies to ensure that the process is fair and legal and that the rights of citizens participating in the process are (not) violated,” Warrington writes.

    Paul’s national campaign chairman Jesse Benton added that he was not surprised by “the shenanigans happening inside the King County Republican establishment.” adding that “all options are on the table, including the ‘nuclear option’ ” of disallowing King County PCOs to be seated at the national convention.

    In comments to the Seattle Times, Sotelo and State GOP Chairman Kirby Wilbur called the concerns of the Paul campaign “conspiracy theories”, but refused to say how many PCO vacancies they had filled.

    The GOP officials suggested that the Paul campaign is preparing excuses in the eventuality that the Congressman does not win the caucuses.

    “I think they are looking for a way to discredit the process,” said Sotelo.

    If the Paul campaign’s concerns turn out to be accurate, this would not be the first time that foul play has prevented a Paul victory during this election run. As we have extensively reported, questions over voting and the appointment of delegates have been raised in almost every state thus far.

    Rick's DONE! May run away from Words, but NOT Video: CSPAN 1996 w/Spector “Protect a Woman’s Right to Choose”

    Ron Paul 2012

    And certainly, he can't run away from a press conference!

    So, the question is, WHEN is the campaign gonna do an ad based on this?

    An official release directly from the RP2012 camapaign:
    Santorum with Specter in 1996 to "Protect a Woman's Right to Choose"*|*Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign CommitteeRon Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign Committee

    Santorum with Specter in 1996 to “Protect a Woman’s Right to Choose”

    The campaign released this as an “In Case You Missed It” release today and just wanted to further make sure nobody missed it. Wow. Just wow. Is there no end to the chronic flip-flopping from every Republican presidential candidate except Ron Paul? From the release:

    At Senator Arlen Specter’s official presidential campaign announcement in March 1996, then-Senator Rick Santorum showed his public support and encouragement of Specter by sitting directly next to him as Specter denounced the GOP’s war on abortion. It was at this event that Specter proclaimed his total opposition to social conservatism and declared he is in fact running to make the GOP pro-choice.

    Here are a few key takeaways from the 25 minute C-SPAN video, with Santorum seen nodding and applauding at Specter’s side:

    3’46 mark: “In 1996, I intend to win the other house — the White House — with ten commitments to America… including a woman’s right to choose…

    13’22 mark: “Even though we have this historic opportunity for these achievements, there are those in our party who would lead us down a different path — and squander this unique moment in our nation’s history — by using our political capital — to pursue a radical social agenda — that would end a woman’s right to choose…

    13’48 mark: “When Pat Robertson says there is no constitutional doctrine of separation between Church and State, I say he is wrong…

    14’31 mark: “When Ralph Reed says a pro-choice Republican isn’t qualified to be our President, I say the Republican Party will not be intimidated or blackmailed by those kinds of threats.I, and millions of other pro-choice Republicans, will not be disenfranchised and made second class citizens.

    15’33 mark: “… it is not Christian, or religious, or Judeo-Christian to bring God into politics; or to advocate intolerance and promote exclusion.

    15’54 mark: “I want to take abortion out of politics. I want to keep the Republican Party focused on the vital economic and foreign policy issues — and leave moral issues such as abortion to the conscience of the individual. I believe abortion is an issue to be decided by women…

    16’40 mark: “I pledge to lead the fight to strip the strident anti-choice language from the Republican National platform…”
