    Ron Paul Campaign Nets Almost $10.4 million in Q1 Keeping Paul Competitive Ahead of Texas Also cites $2.6 million-plus raised in

    press release
    April 20, 2012, 8:32 a.m. EDT

    LAKE JACKSON, Texas, Apr 20, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- The Ron Paul 2012 Presidential campaign announced today that it raised nearly $10.4 million in the first fundraising quarter of 2012, providing it with ample resources to sustain a 50-state race with establishment-choice Mitt Romney as well as compete decisively in Congressman Paul's home state of Texas.

    For the fundraising quarter ending March 31, 2012, or Q1, total campaign contributions approached $10.4 million. In addition to the impressive eight-figure fundraising total for the quarter, the campaign is announcing that total contributions for the month of March alone exceeded $2.6 million. Other details include total cash on hand of nearly $1.8 million and zero debt, as is customary. Especially noteworthy is that these figures exclude the nearly $1.4 million raised during the campaign's Tax Day money bomb, or online fundraising event.

    "Total contributions of $10.4 million in Q1, including details such as $1.8 million cash on hand and more money bomb cash in the pipeline, amounts to excellent news as these resources fuel our effective delegate-attainment strategy. These ample funds also will help us compete even harder in Texas, where Ron Paul is the only Texan, veteran, and authentic conservative running," said Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton.

    Politico: Paul Raised $2.6 Million In March


    Daily Paul Liberty Forum


    Here is the article: Paul raised $2.6 million in March - POLITICO.com

    Looks rather positive until the end. They have to spin it by saying "Paul may be in better financial shape than, say, Newt Gingrich, but even his loyal supporters seem to be tiring: the $2.6 million figure is down from $3.3 million in February and $4.5 million in January."

    They just can't say that he is still a contender, that his supporters are not giving up, they have to spin the article.

    GOP Delegates Refuse to Sign Romney Pledge

    All wrapped up, right Mitt? Not so fast. From CNN’s Political Ticker:

    Members of the Republican National Committee gathering in Arizona were invited to meet with Mitt Romney in private Friday and have their pictures taken with the presumptive GOP nominee, but there was a price of admission: loyalty.

    RNC members and state GOP chairmen were welcomed into the private reception only after signing a form pledging to support Romney as a delegate to the national convention in Tampa.

    All 168 members of the committee have a vote at the convention as “superdelegates” – and one of Romney’s supporters on the RNC estimated that over 100 members signed the form.

    The Romney “delegate pledge form” asked members to sign their name and “pledge to vote for Mitt Romney at the 2012 Republican National Convention on all ballots until Mitt Romney has been nominated.”

    Signers were given the option of declaring their support publicly or privately by checking one of two boxes….

    Not everyone was allowed to join in the fun.

    All three members of Iowa’s conservative RNC delegation – party chairman A.J. Spiker and committee members Steve Scheffler and Kim Lehman – attempted to enter the reception but were rebuffed after refusing to sign the delegate pledge…

    Several of Romney’s deputies on the committee assured the trio that they could keep their support a secret by checking the appropriate box, but they refused to do so…

    Romney asks GOP delegates to sign pledge, but some refuse


    Posted by
    CNN Political Reporter Peter Hamby

    Scottsdale, Arizona (CNN) - Members of the Republican National Committee gathering in Arizona were invited to meet with Mitt Romney in private Friday and have their pictures taken with the presumptive GOP nominee, but there was a price of admission: loyalty.

    RNC members and state GOP chairmen were welcomed into the private reception only after signing a form pledging to support Romney as a delegate to the national convention in Tampa.

    – Follow the Ticker on Twitter: @PoliticalTicker

    All 168 members of the committee have a vote at the convention as "superdelegates" – and one of Romney's supporters on the RNC estimated that over 100 members signed the form.

    The Romney "delegate pledge form" asked members to sign their name and "pledge to vote for Mitt Romney at the 2012 Republican National Convention on all ballots until Mitt Romney has been nominated."

    Signers were given the option of declaring their support publicly or privately by checking one of two boxes.

    Several state Republican chairmen who have not publicly endorsed a candidate - including party leaders from South Carolina, Ohio and California - signed the pledge.

    Romney spoke only briefly and spent roughly 20 minutes shaking hands and posing with members in a photo line.

    "This is where all the power is, huh?" Romney joked as he entered the room to applause. "Thank you for all your work. Thank you for your help."

    Not everyone was allowed to join in the fun.

    All three members of Iowa's conservative RNC delegation – party chairman A.J. Spiker and committee members Steve Scheffler and Kim Lehman – attempted to enter the reception but were rebuffed after refusing to sign the delegate pledge.

    The dispute became heated in the hallway outside, with the Iowans demanding to know why they had to sign a form to get their picture taken with the former Massachusetts governor.

    Several of Romney's deputies on the committee assured the trio that they could keep their support a secret by checking the appropriate box, but they refused to do so.

    "They don't trust us," a frustrated Scheffler said after the argument. "I have said I will support the nominee when we have a nominee, no ifs, ands or buts."

    The Iowa delegates were later given the opportunity to pose for a photo with Romney at a luncheon for RNC members, after the private event for supporters.

    Romney can say he likes War and the NDAA and thats all I needed to hear... as screwed up as he is on everything else to INCLUDE Monetary Policy; those were the things bankrupting this country and giving the government legal permission to lock up INDEFINANTY without trial ANY AMERICAN ... he is GOOF / He is a Vulture Capitalist and a Soup Sandwhich that has NO CONSISTANCY

    Just Like Bush, he is a GLOBALIST

    WE will not vote for Slim Picken's the Flip Flop Master that has an opposing position on everything

    you better get over it or start trying to wow the Independants and converting the Democrat's to vote for him

    you aint getting my vote or about 15 million hard core Ron Paul Followers

    Even if Ron Paul dropped out... we are writting him in on the Ballot

    Vote Rigger’s Nightmare Come True: the Alabama Delegate Debacle

    Submitted by Dr.K.Research on Fri, 04/20/2012 - 17:17
    Daily Paul Liberty Forum

    Exclusive to the Daily Paul, share widely: April 20, 2012

    In 2012 during the run-up to the Alabama primary there were numerous activists on the ground campaigning on behalf of Dr. Ron Paul. These activists had high hopes of a strong Ron Paul showing, perhaps not first place but surely a solid third place or even a second place finish. This was a reasonable presumption considering the degree of activity and grass-roots effort. Also, it was well known that, overall, Dr. Paul won the presidential debates, including the ones in near-neighboring South Carolina. However, when he only scored 5%, something was obviously terribly wrong.

    It just didn’t add up. Was it merely a poor showing resulting from the media black-out and slander? Was it simply that Dr. Paul isn’t popular? Or, was it something far more sinister such as vote manipulation?

    Mathematicians and engineers began performing analyses on the data and found a massive anomaly. There were, incredibly, more votes for his delegates than for the good doctor himself. It wasn’t even close.

    Rather, there was as count as high as 300% greater of these delegate votes than Paul votes. The vote riggers had revealed themselves, and they didn’t even realize it.

    by the way... when the Democrats start cheating with Voter Fraud in the Fall... dont say a damn thing; if you didnt do so at the state level

    If the Blue team does it; it's Baaaad

    GOP can Nominate Ron Paul - or Join the Dustbin of History!

    Pledge “OnlyRonPaul2012”

    'I will after the GOP convention, WIN or LOSE, pledge to finance Ron Paul

    "I will after the GOP convention, WIN or LOSE, pledge to finance Ron Paul’s 2012 campaign at the rate of $10 per week but only if 1,000,000 other Americans will do the same."

    — Vince Edwards, Extreme Constitutional Fundamentalist

    Deadline to sign up by: 1st September 2012

    Our first WEEKLY 10 MILLION DOLLAR MONEYBOMB will be the day after the GOP convention in Tampa Bay. We will be donating directly to the campaign via the http://www.ronpaul2012.com website. Until then please continue to participate in all moneybombs along the way! Ron Paul is the founding father of this generation’s Tea Party. If Ron doesn’t get the nomination our pledges will be a very compelling reason for Ron to start a REAL Tea Party just like the one that birthed the Declaration of Independence over 230 years ago!

    Why such a small amount? If the people did not have to break the bank on an individual basis and knew their $10 was being pooled in with 1 million others, Ron Paul’s $10 million dollar per week contributions could easily be made each week, as well as demonstrate to the rest of the country, through small donations, Ron Paul has the support of the we the people! Just imagine having a million committed donors every week as a talking point when facing Obama and possibly Romney too, since all they have is just a handful of BANKSTERS!

    There are MILLIONS of Ron Paul supporters in America today! We're ONLY looking for 1 million to sign the pledge! The only reason we can't do this is if you don't pledge and spread the word like the wildfire!

    Is it worth $10 per week…

    …to finally have a president in office who obeys the constitution?

    …to declare an end to the war on we the people which the NDAA represents?

    …to have a family values role model as president instead of someone who just pays lip service to the concept?

    …to release over two million non-violent people from our prisons who’s only “crime” MAY have been harming themselves?

    …to put this Orwellian style government back on its constitutional leash?

    …to have peace officers protect and serve the people instead of harass and intimidate them?

    …to abolish the Federal Department of Education which will put control back into the hands of parents and local communities?

    …to end the Federal Reserve System which is designed to bankrupt America and squander the birthright of your children and your children’s children?

    …to finally have a president in office that you can be PROUD of?

    Finally, would it be worth $10 per week to be able to live your life, have maximum Liberty and pursue happiness without government intervention and END the IRS and INCOME TAX which is a direct violation of your 5th amendment rights guaranteed by Ron Paul’s oath to constitution?

    True freedom requires that you do not have to like how others use their freedom, but as long as they do not violate your rights you MUST allow them to be FREE!

    If you value that kind of freedom, pledge today and spread this pledge far and wide! Let’s leave nothing to chance. With all the fraud that has gone on to this point we must realize that elections in this country can no longer be won, they must be PURCHASED. Once there are 1 million people on this pledge our Liberty will be GUARANTEED, so sign the pledge today!
    A vote does not equal a pledge - please pledge!

    BREAKNG NEWS: Milwaukee County Election Board Served: Evidence of Election Fraud and More

    Submitted by Dr.K.Research on Fri, 04/20/2012 - 18:23 Daily Paul Liberty Forum

    First, let me say I am proud to be an American, something I have never before said in my life. Proud to associate with all the people of Dr. Ron Paul, proud to be involved. Let me also say that Americans have proven themselves to be among the finest people on this earth, brave and steady, thorough and intelligent, shrewd and relentless. The American people are the remaining virile nation left in the Western world, willing to challenge the most powerful, vested individuals in existence. You are the hope for a better world, the hope for real change, and you have proven it.

    Everyone knows that Ron Paul has been cheated out of votes. Yet, what isn’t well realized is that the cheating undermined other candidates, including Rick Perry, Michelle Bachmann, and Rick Santorum. The greatest beneficiary of this thieving is Mitt Romney. Even so, Rick Santorum, despite being an occasional victim, was also a major recipient of stolen votes.

    Yet, here is the important point. Not only are certain candidates being cheated but also, most importantly, the voters themselves. To steal even a single vote is a felony offense, with punishment of jail time and hefty fines.

    Overall, nation-wide, by far the greatest victim of vote theft is Dr. Ron Paul and, therefore, his supporters. Hundreds of thousands of his votes were stolen in Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Michigan, Vermont, Virginia, Illinois, Maine, and Wisconsin plus more.

    I had a good deal of on-the-ground experience in Wisconsin. Here, there is great enthusiasm for Dr. Paul. Through exit polls conducted by this writer it became clear that the official numbers are bogus. How could Dr. Paul score first-place by a 20% margin in the combined exit polls I covered and second in a third ward and yet get trounced everywhere else in Wisconsin, especially in his strongholds, like Madison? Was it because we campaigned in the area so hard that he did well in that isolated spot, or was it something far more sinister? How could the only first place finish of a major ward in Milwaukee be exclusively the polls I manned, polls in which I spent nearly seven hours? It just didn’t make sense.

    Why is it that everywhere in Wisconsin Ron Paul is on the lips and minds of so many, yet, despite this, officially, his showing was poor? Then, too, how could he lose every single Madison City ward to either Romney or Santorum, that is every ward over 200 voters? Why was he first, there, in the tiny wards only, while scoring mostly third in the big ones near the university? He scored not a single first placed finish in this city. It is simply impossible.

    Again, on the ground, while campaigning there it was clear that countless people spoke highly of him,and fully set out to vote for him. In Madison during that night-time lecture the teeming masses of people, 5200-strong, came forth to see him. Then, on the television he gets a paltry 11%? No way. And don't insult our intelligence. We know better.

    At the second exit poll I was forced out of the building, which is recorded on video. The trauma of being surrounded by security guards and being accosted was significant. There was in my mind an obvious threat of arrest. Thus, there was no option other than serve notice to the Wisconsin Election Board and thus the State.

    My first service was done in person. However, the state employee, one of the top officials, refused. Therefore, a professional process server was hired, and he succeeded in serving the Board. This was duplicated by service of the Election Board of Dane County, where significant vote fraud has occurred.

    During my session with the County Clerk I gave her specific instructions. “Don’t certify these results,” she was told at least a dozen times. “There will be consequences,” that is if the results are proven fraudulent and the County fails to investigate it. Said the Clerk, “I am confident in the results, and they will be certified, as promised, as scheduled (on April 13th). That was over a week ago, and they are yet to be certified. Is this a good sign? Don’t know. What I do know is that there is no way Dr. Paul scored only 11% to 12% on average in these two freedom-friendly cities.

    To be personally accosted is one thing. Yet, far more devastating than any such trauma is the systematic theft of votes. This is a severe crime that affects our entire basis as a civilization. It is the suppression of the peoples’ choice—their casting of ballots for dreams and hope or for whatever they may believe.

    In Wisconsin peoples’ votes for two different candidates were disenfranchised: Dr. Paul and also Rick Santorum. Thus, in a signed affidavit under the penalty of perjury the State has been duly informed. Here is the service.

    Warning: it's a big document, takes time to download: Dr. K.’s Service Against the Wisconsin Election Board | Discussion Room

    Do feel free to use a similar document for serving the County Clerks in your area. Dr. Paul is being suppressed. This man is YOUR choice. So, your voice, your right, is being severely compromised. Build a document of your own based upon vote theft and serve it upon any County Clerk. It is high time to take our rights back. It’s time to fight back with the internal power we have—the power of our God-given rights. In some cases it might be wise to get data first, like voter rolls and poll tapes. There's little time left. We must take action.

    By God, we have a right to be free. So, let us fight with everything we have. Let us be brave and even braver than we could ever conceive. Let them have it good by serving up your own document. Our brave statisticians and mathematicians have given us all the fuel—the proof—we need. All the charts and data can be found on RonPaulForums.com (search for the thread "Voter Integrity" and also http://i269.photobucket.com/albums/j...imariescsv.png

    If you have even the slightest evidence of irregularities, serve your local county officials for corrupting the vote. If you decide to serve it yourself, please do so.

    Yet, be sure to be kind, and let the officials know it is not personal but is instead “political.” You can surely say, if asked, that you are "only trying for everyone's sake to make sure the elections are honest." By doing so we shall finally establish America as the great nation it has always promised to be, the real and true land of liberty—the greatest land on the face of this earth, the land of the free and brave, a land I have learned to become proud of.

    Milwaukee was served, twice: once by me in person, a service which was refused and then successfully by process server.

    After this service the results of the presidential primary, the general results, disappeared. I contacted the County Clerk today; the workers, there, said the results were online. Not so, I told them. When they then went to the Web site while on the phone line with the Clerk’s office, the worker confirmed that the results are nowhere to be found. And that’s the official site for Milwaukee County. The point is that they didn’t certify. Nor should they. We have evidence of fraud, now, and more to break. Everyone: urge the County Clerk’s office in Milwaukee not to certify. Make a major urge for the same to the rest of the state.

    Note: there is even bigger breaking news, huge, of fraud yet to come, starting right in Milwaukee. Will add this powerful news to this post, God willing, within 48 hours.
