    Bilderbergs wish for Ron Paul



    Published on Jun 1, 2012 by

    Following the first day of the "Palm Tree Conference," Bilderberg 2012 those who were invited were greeted to jeers and heckling from over 200 protesters, some of which were streaming the day's events live over the internet. Sadly, networks like Fox News, NBC, CBS, ABC, and CNN; all of which have studios in Washington D.C an almost thirty minute drive away from the Westfields Marriott Hotel in Chantilly Virginia.

    As the members filed into the hotel, veteran reporter Jim Tucker has heard from one of his sources inside Bilderberg that some of the attendees are not too fond of Texas Congressman Dr. Ron Paul, and his historic impact in getting Americans politically involved and interested in the liberty movement. Tucker is reporting that, some attendees were discussing what they would do the Presidential nominee and his supporters.

    I'll let Mr. Tucker explain their wishes to send Paul to the french capitol....

    ANYBODY BUT ROMNEY

    By Dr. Patrick Jonston
    June 2, 2012
    NewsWithViews.com

    [Disclaimer: The opinion expressed in this article are those of Dr. Patrick Johnston and not the opinion of NewsWithViews, it's staff and other writers.]
    The year is 1999.

    Clinton’s cigars and his mistress’ stained dresses are all that’s on the media’s mind. Christian conservatives are as giddy as a five-year-old on the eve of a Disney vacation. They are itchin’ to put an “R” in the White House.

    Their rallying cry? “Anybody but Clinton.”


    Nevermind that Texas Governor G. W. Bush endorsed abortion in cases of rape, incest, and maternal health. Nevermind that he appointed pro-abortion candidates to the judicial bench when he was governor of Texas. Nevermind that he endorsed same-sex “civil unions,” which was basically marriage by another name. Anybody but Clinton.

    When G.W. Bush won the White House from Bill Clinton, he did things that only Clinton could dream of doing Bush

    - Increased federal debt
    - Increased federal spending … at the fastest rate in 30 years
    - Increased farm subsidies and other welfare programs
    - Increased funding of abortion and Planned Parenthood to record-high levels
    - Increased government control of education, which was a colossal failure
    - Increased funding for the National Endowment of the Arts (remember the crucifix in a jar of urine, or the bullwhip penetrating the sodomite?)
    - Promoted more open sodomites to public office
    - Installed John Roberts to Supreme Court, who had worked to further the homosexual agenda
    - Installed Sam Alito to the Supreme Court, who had issued five radical pro-abortion rulings (including ruling that New Jersey’s Partial Birth Abortion ban was “unconstitutional” and cited Roe v. Wade approvingly in the process)
    - Passed the largest entitlement program in a generation, hastening Medicare’s bankruptcy


    Bush’s liberal policies while governor of Texas dwarfed compared to his exploits as president.


    Why couldn’t Clinton do these things? Because of a Republican Congress. How could Bush do these things? Because of a Republican Congress! The Republicans resisted Clinton’s leftist agenda, but stood faithfully by their man G. W. Bush when he outdid the socialist programs of Marxist Bill Clinton.

    Fast-forward to 2012.


    “Anybody but Obama” is now the motto of all the conservatives who are lining up to hold their noses and endorse Mitt Romney.

    Even though Romney single-handedly, illegally, and unconstitutionally put Massachusetts on the map as the first state to hand out marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
    Even though he passed Romneycare which included $50 co-pay, taxpayer-funded abortions – all of this supposedly three years after his “pro-life conversion.”
    Even though under Romney’s leadership, employment in Massachusetts was the worst in the nation and the size of the state government grew to astronomical proportions.


    If you judge a candidate by what he does and not what he says on the campaign trail, who would be the face of legalized gay marriage, tax-payer funded child-killing, and BIG government?

    Mitt Romney


    Romney could run as Obama’s running mate, and yet Christian conservatives have the audacity to hold their noses and endorse this man? If they had lived in Germany in the 1930’s, would they have endorsed Nazism for fear of Communism? Would they have voted for Hitler as the lesser-of-two-evils over the Boogeyman Stalin?

    Answer that question, Gary Bauer, Richard Land, James Dobson, Franklin Graham, Jerry Falwell, Cal Thomas, Pat Robertson, Tony Perkins, Paul Weyrich, Dr. John Willke, Patrick Mahoney, Marvin Olaski, and all you other Judases who’ve betrayed your cause and your people for a seat at the RINO table?

    If Christians follow their pathetic finger-in-the-wind leaders to the polls to pull the lever for Romney, we will well-publicize our indictment. The salt’s loss of savor will have been broadcast to all. Judgment will begin at the House of God, and we deserve it.

    The best hope for freedom is not in Washington, D.C. It’s in our living rooms, our churches, and our statehouses. We must prepare our families and churches for the looming judgment. States must exercise their sovereignty and ban abortion, resist federal control over healthcare and education, and put our Ten Commandments monuments back up in our halls and schoolhouses.

    We must get our kids out of the godless government schools. We must get our people off of the federal handouts. We must build local and state governments that can sustain us when the federal government goes bankrupt and the dollar implodes, when the entitlement checks stop coming in and the rioters start wreaking havoc, and when God’s gavel falls against us for the shedding of innocent blood.


    When we rebuild, let’s rebuild not on the shifting sands of relative morality, secular humanism, and pragmatism. Let’s rebuild on the sure foundation of the Word of God, the standard of morality and justice without which posterity will not be free.

    Almost half of new vets seek disability

    By MARILYNN MARCHIONE
    AP Chief Medical Writer

    (AP) - America 's newest veterans are filing for disability benefits at a historic rate, claiming to be the most medically and mentally troubled generation of former troops the nation has ever seen.

    A staggering 45 percent of the 1.6 million veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are now seeking compensation for injuries they say are service-related. That is more than double the estimate of 21 percent who filed such claims after the Gulf War in the early 1990s, top government officials told The Associated Press.

    What's more, these new veterans are claiming eight to nine ailments on average, and the most recent ones over the last year are claiming 11 to 14. By comparison, Vietnam veterans are currently receiving compensation for fewer than four, on average, and those from World War II and Korea , just two.

    It's unclear how much worse off these new veterans are than their predecessors. Many factors are driving the dramatic increase in claims _ the weak economy, more troops surviving wounds, and more awareness of problems such as concussions and PTSD. Almost one-third have been granted disability so far.

    Government officials and some veterans' advocates say that veterans who might have been able to work with certain disabilities may be more inclined to seek benefits now because they lost jobs or can't find any. Aggressive outreach and advocacy efforts also have brought more veterans into the system, which must evaluate each claim to see if it is war-related. Payments range from $127 a month for a 10 percent disability to $2,769 for a full one.

    As the nation commemorates the more than 6,400 troops who died in post-9/11 wars, the problems of those who survived also draw attention. These new veterans are seeking a level of help the government did not anticipate, and for which there is no special fund set aside to pay.

    The Department of Veterans Affairs is mired in backlogged claims, but "our mission is to take care of whatever the population is," said Allison Hickey, the VA's undersecretary for benefits. "We want them to have what their entitlement is."

    The 21 percent who filed claims in previous wars is Hickey's estimate of an average for Operation Desert Storm and Desert Shield. The VA has details only on the current disability claims being paid to veterans of each war.

    The AP spent three months reviewing records and talking with doctors, government officials and former troops to take stock of the new veterans. They are different in many ways from those who fought before them.

    More are from the Reserves and National Guard _ 28 percent of those filing disability claims _ rather than career military. Reserves and National Guard made up a greater percentage of troops in these wars than they did in previous ones. About 31 percent of Guard/Reserve new veterans have filed claims compared to 56 percent of career military ones.

    More of the new veterans are women, accounting for 12 percent of those who have sought care through the VA. Women also served in greater numbers in these wars than in the past. Some female veterans are claiming PTSD due to military sexual trauma _ a new challenge from a disability rating standpoint, Hickey said.

    The new veterans have different types of injuries than previous veterans did. That's partly because improvised bombs have been the main weapon and because body armor and improved battlefield care allowed many of them to survive wounds that in past wars proved fatal.

    "They're being kept alive at unprecedented rates," said Dr. David Cifu, the VA's medical rehabilitation chief. More than 95 percent of troops wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan have survived.

    Larry Bailey II is an example. After tripping a rooftop bomb in Afghanistan last June, the 26-year-old Marine remembers flying into the air, then fellow troops attending to him.

    "I pretty much knew that my legs were gone. My left hand, from what I remember I still had three fingers on it," although they didn't seem right, Bailey said. "I looked a few times but then they told me to stop looking." Bailey, who is from Zion , Ill. , north of Chicago , ended up a triple amputee and expects to get a hand transplant this summer.

    He is still transitioning from active duty and is not yet a veteran. Just over half of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans eligible for VA care have used it so far.

    Of those who have sought VA care:

    _More than 1,600 of them lost a limb; many others lost fingers or toes.

    _At least 156 are blind, and thousands of others have impaired vision.

    _More than 177,000 have hearing loss, and more than 350,000 report tinnitus _ noise or ringing in the ears.

    _Thousands are disfigured, as many as 200 of them so badly that they may need face transplants. One-quarter of battlefield injuries requiring evacuation included wounds to the face or jaw, one study found.

    "The numbers are pretty staggering," said Dr. Bohdan Pomahac, a surgeon at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston who has done four face transplants on non-military patients and expects to start doing them soon on veterans.

    Others have invisible wounds. More than 400,000 of these new veterans have been treated by the VA for a mental health problem, most commonly, PTSD.

    Tens of thousands of veterans suffered traumatic brain injury, or TBI _ mostly mild concussions from bomb blasts _ and doctors don't know what's in store for them long-term. Cifu, of the VA, said that roughly 20 percent of active duty troops suffered concussions, but only one-third of them have symptoms lasting beyond a few months.

    That's still a big number, and "it's very rare that someone has just a single concussion," said David Hovda, director of the UCLA Brain Injury Research Center . Suffering multiple concussions, or one soon after another, raises the risk of long-term problems. A brain injury also makes the brain more susceptible to PTSD, he said.

    On a more mundane level, many new veterans have back, shoulder and knee problems, aggravated by carrying heavy packs and wearing the body armor that helped keep them alive.

    One recent study found that 19 percent required orthopedic surgery consultations and 4 percent needed surgery after returning from combat.

    All of this adds up to more disability claims, which for years have been coming in faster than the government can handle them. The average wait to get a new one processed grows longer each month and is now about eight months _ time that a frustrated, injured veteran might spend with no income.

    More than 560,000 veterans from all wars currently have claims that are backlogged _ older than 125 days.

    The VA's benefits chief, Hickey, gave these reasons:

    _Sheer volume. Disability claims from all veterans soared from 888,000 in 2008 to 1.3 million in 2011. Last year's included more than 230,000 new claims from Vietnam veterans and their survivors because of a change in what conditions can be considered related to Agent Orange exposure. Those complex, 50-year-old cases took more than a third of available staff, she said.

    _High number of ailments per claim. When a veteran claims 11 to 14 problems, each one requires "due diligence" _ a medical evaluation and proof that it is service-related, Hickey said.

    _A new mandate to handle the oldest cases first. Because these tend to be the most complex, they have monopolized staff and pushed up average processing time on new claims, she said.

    _Outmoded systems. The VA is streamlining and going to electronic records, but for now, "We have 4.4 million case files sitting around 56 regional offices that we have to work with; that slows us down significantly," Hickey said.

    Barry Jesinoski, executive director of Disabled American Veterans, called Hickey's efforts "commendable," but said: "The VA has a long way to go" to meet veterans' needs. Even before the surge in Agent Orange cases, VA officials "were already at a place that was unacceptable" on backlogged claims, he said.

    He and VA officials agree that the economy is motivating some claims. His group helps veterans file them, and he said that sometimes when veterans come in, "We'll say, `Is your back worse?' and they'll say, `No, I just lost my job.'"

    Jesinoski does believe these veterans have more mental problems, especially from multiple deployments.

    "You just can't keep sending people into war five, six or seven times and expect that they're going to come home just fine," he said.

    For taxpayers, the ordeal is just beginning. With any war, the cost of caring for veterans rises for several decades and peaks 30 to 40 years later, when diseases of aging are more common, said Harvard economist Linda Bilmes. She estimates the health care and disability costs of the recent wars at $600 billion to $900 billion.

    "This is a huge number and there's no money set aside," she said. "Unless we take steps now into some kind of fund that will grow over time, it's very plausible many people will feel we can't afford these benefits we overpromised."

    How would that play to these veterans, who all volunteered and now expect the government to keep its end of the bargain?

    "The deal was, if you get wounded, we're going to supply this level of support," Bilmes said. Right now, "there's a lot of sympathy and a lot of people want to help. But memories are short and times change."

    We Have 1,000 Delegates! - Business Insider

    "Ron Paul Festival will also serve as a pre-game rally for Ron Paul's national convention delegates, which could number up to 1,000, according to one source familiar with the campaign's internal delegate count."

    Ron Paul Fans Are Pre-Gaming The Republican Convention - Business Insider


    The Title should read we WILL have over 1,000 Delegates; thats why the Republican Party is trying to eliminate Ron Paul Delegates in Mass. as well as other states.

    As far as what i am reading... Ron Paul has already surpassed Romney when the Delegates were unbound

    Romney can say they will vote for Mitten's all he wants... the Reality will hit at the convention

    Palin: Tea partiers have 'no choice' but Romney

    'Of course they're going to go with anybody but Obama'

    Published: 6 hours ago by Drew Zahn
    After a long and sharply contested GOP primary battle, many Republicans, conservatives and tea-party types have been left questioning whether they can, in good conscience, vote for Mitt Romney in November.

    Romney’s statements as a former advocate of legalized abortion, his hotly contested record on same-sex marriage and his health-care reforms while governor of Massachusetts – sometimes maligned as “Romneycare” – have left conservatives uncertain if the presumptive Republican nominee is really one of their own.

    Tea-party darling and former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, however, is basically dismissing the concerns, telling Fox News Channel’s Shannon Bream that Romney has the Republican Party’s conservative base in the bag.

    On “America’s News Headquarters” over the weekend, host Bream asked Palin if Romney’s choice of Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., as running mate would help persuade those “not completely sold” on the name at the top of the GOP ticket.

    “A lot of maybe Tea Party patriots have understood, wisely, that they’ve had no choice,” Palin answered. “Of course they’re going to go with anybody but Obama, and now, yes, I believe that there will be a strengthening, more enthusiasm, because [of] this ticket.”

    When asked how Romney needs to “coalesce” his message to communicate with voters, Palin doubled down on the notion that the GOP base is secured.

    “It’s all about the independents, Shannon,” Palin said. “We don’t have to just keep on preaching to the choir, there, of the hardcore base of fiscal conservatives within the Republican Party – we got ‘em; Romney’s got ‘em. We’ve got to reach the independents.”

    According to the latest polling data from Rasmussen Reports, however, Palin’s claims may be more predictive of voting in November than descriptive of the current divide within the Republican Party.

    Rasmussen’s most recent poll on the question of voter enthusiasm found that only 16 percent of Republicans believe Romney and Obama are the best two options to be running for president, only 35 percent will affirm excitement about the match-up and a sobering 46 percent of all voters believe they “will simply be voting for the lesser of two evils this November.”

    Nonetheless, according to the most recent Gallup polls, 90 percent of Republicans say they would vote for Romney if the election was today, and 92 percent of those who voted for GOP candidate John McCain in 2008 say they plan to vote for Romney in 2012.

    When asked if she would endorse and stump for the presumptive GOP ticket, Palin responded, “Oh, 100 percent in support; I’m all in for Romney and Ryan.”
    Bream’s interview with Palin can be seen below:



    Palin: Tea partiers have ‘no choice’ but Romney





    Palin: Tea partiers have 'no choice' but Romney <--- WRONG

    ~ Some will stay home
    ~ Some are so PISS'd Off from the RNC and GOP cheating they will vote Obama... check out the forums you will see exactly what i am talking about
    ~ Some Will do a write in Vote
    ~ Some will vote for the Constitution Party
    ~ You better start looking for votes or get those Dibold Machines going screwy to bulk up your numbers... its far less than what you think you have... numbers are going to Wobble badly right after the RNC


    When asked how Romney needs to “coalesce” his message to communicate with voters, Palin doubled down on the notion that the GOP base is secured. <--- Wrong ... I have been a Hard Core Republican for the last 11 years and a straight party voter an additional 18 years (Not no More)

    “It’s all about the independents, Shannon,” Palin said. “We don’t have to just keep on preaching to the choir, there, of the hardcore base of fiscal conservatives within the Republican Party – we got ‘em; Romney’s got ‘em. <--- Wrong There are an estimated 11 - 13 Million Ron Paul Fan's and there is no such Animal as a on the fence Ron Paul voter ... Even if there was; those numbers are to small to Matter

    the GOP / RNC threw away Millions of young highly motivated voters by CHEATING against Ron Paul in state after state


    We’ve got to reach the independents.” <--- Correct and you are running out of time
