This video is the only one that tells honest citizens how to STOP the rigging of the Iowa Caucus 2012. This video includes Ron Paul speaking about the necessity of Watching the Vote. The Iowa STATE GOP has a long history of rigging the Iowa Caucus. The LOCAL Iowans do everything honest and in the open at each local Caucus, and then call in their results honestly. THEN -- the Iowa Caucus is rigged at the STATE LEVEL by the Iowa STATE GOP. Google "A House without Doors" for how the Iowa GOP, the Big TV Networks, and Voter News Service (now renamed National Election Pool) stole 13% of Pat Buchanan's vote in Dubuque County in the 1996 Iowa Presidential Caucus. Dole benefited in 96. This year they will try to rig the Iowa Caucus against Ron Paul and Michele Bachmann -- and for Romney and Gingrich -- if they can get away with it. We MUST STOP THEM AND ENSURE AN HONEST COUNT. THIS VIDEO IS THE ONLY ONE THAT TELLS YOU HOW!
If you thought the establishment’s tactic of ignoring who wins the Iowa primary was bizarre enough, try this one on for size. A USA Today story about how polls show Ron Paul is leading in Iowa is entitled ‘Ron Paul still not in lead’.
The mental gymnastics required to unravel this convoluted premise are somewhat intense, so concentrate…
The gist of the story is that Ron Paul is in fact in the lead according to the polls, but because “mainstream Republicans” insist that he shouldn’t be leading, that means the voters are meaningless and that Ron Paul is in fact not in the lead.
So now we’re being told that surveys of likely voters, the three most recent of which show Paul is leading Romney and Gingrich, have no legitimacy because the establishment doesn’t like Ron Paul.
While the establishment media continues to hype a 15-year-old story concerning decades old newsletters as part of a dirty tricks campaign to smear Ron Paul as a racist, the latest CNN poll shows that Paul has the most support from non-whites out of all the Republican candidates.
The latest CNN/ORC poll released Tuesday finds that Congressman Paul scores highest amongst minorities when matched up against Barack Obama in a hypothetical election head to head.
Paul scores 25% of the vote amongst non-whites, whereas Romney polls at 20% and Gingrich gets 15%.
Ron Paul is clearly the most popular GOP contender amongst non-whites out of the entire field, suggesting that the “racist” smear, which was heavily pushed back in 2008, has had very little impact whatsoever on the views of those who presumably would be the most likely to be offended by it.
Indeed, it’s a remarkable coincidence that those who seem to be most offended by the non-controversy are well to do, white, establishment Republican cheerleaders, Paul’s foremost political adversaries.
The establishment media has predictably launched a second round of smear concerning the “racist newsletter” controversy that was first reported in 1996 and firmly debunked when it cropped up again in 2008.
From rightly heralding the Iowa primary as a crucial indicator as to who will eventually capture the GOP nomination, the establishment has closed ranks and now decided that a Ron Paul victory doesn’t count and that the focus will be on who finishes second.
Despite the fact that two out of the last three winners of the Iowa primary have gone on to successfully capture the Republican nomination, the political class have decided that Ron Paul doesn’t deserve the opportunity to build the same kind of momentum, and that a victory for him in Iowa “would do irreparable harm to the future role of the first-in-the-nation caucuses.”
Both Ron Paul and Michele Bachmann are crying foul after what they said were unfair efforts to limit their air time during CBS' Republican presidential debate on Saturday night.
In an email sent out after the debate entitled "What a Joke," the Paul campaign ripped CBS for allowing the Texas Congressman only a minute and a half of air time in the 90 minute debate.
"It literally made me sick watching the mainstream media once again silence the one sane voice in this election," said Campaign Manager John Tate. "The one dissenter to a decade of unchecked war. The one candidate who stands for true defense and actual constitutional government. Ron Paul was silenced, in perhaps the most important debate of the cycle."
Michele Bachmann's campaign made a similar claim, releasing an email it said was inadvertently sent to Communications Director Alice Stewart by a CBS employee that said Bachmann wasn't going to get many questions, so they should try to get another candidate for a post-debate show.
"I was just speaking with Alice Stewart... about the Congresswoman or a senior member if (sic) her staff joining you for the webshow. She said she would be happy to arrange," said one CBS employee in an email sent Saturday afternoon, hours before the debate.
John Dickerson, a CBS News political analyst, then responded, "Okay let's keep it loose though since she's not going to get many questions and she's nearly off the charts in the hopes that we can get someone else."
The campaign said the email indicated "a planned effort to limit questions to Michele Bachmann at tonight's CBS/National Journal Debate."
The principal organizer of the Values Voters Summit derided his own group’s straw poll as irrelevant after Ron Paul won, dismissing the results as not being “truly reflective of where values voters stand.”
Despite Family Research Council President Tony Perkins telling CBS News that the organization prevented campaigns from buying blocks of tickets for the event, Perkins still “dismissed the results as irrelevant, citing 600 people who registered Saturday morning and, he said, “left after Ron Paul spoke.”
Congressman Paul won the straw poll after he received 37 per cent of the vote, but Perkins described the result as an “outlier”.
Even in the course of deriding the accuracy of the poll, Perkins still found time to praise former Kansas City Federal Reserve director Herman Cain, saying there was “something to be said about his results” and his “strong” second place finish.
Every electiion cycle we all end up getting sucked into the standard, dysfunctional political debates that usually boil down to which party and which candiates would be the lesser of two evils. This always ends up producing no change whatsoever after the elections are over. We MUST change the political dialog. We must stop playing the game according to the same old rules of engagement and begin to engage the "real enemy" and the "real issues," namely globalization.
If you don't know this by now, ANYONE who appears from nowhere and is thrust into the "frontrunner" position by the establishment and the establishment media is NOT someone who is on your side. DUH. How many times does this have to happen before everyone realizes it and stops falling for it. RICK PERRY IS A NIGHTMARE!
Perry wasn't always the "gun slinging" Texas cowboy. Long before Perry created his phony macho image, he was a cheerleader at Texas A&M in the 1960's.
A lifelong Democrat, Perry supported Jimmy Carter over Ronald Reagan in the critical 1980 election.
In 1984, the liberal pretty boy Perry was elected as a Democrat State Legislator. In 1987 Perry voted for a 5.7 billion dollar tax increase!
In 1988, Perry was Texas campaign manager for Al Gore's presidential run. Perry then backed super liberal Michael Dukakis in the General Election.
When it became obvious that being a Democrat in conservative Texas was a career killer, the opportunistic and ambitious Perry switched to the Republican Party in 1990. The liberal Democrat college cheerleader cleverly transformed his image into a tough talking, gun slinging Texas cowboy.
"I intend to vote the same convictions," Perry said. "The only difference is that there will be an "R" next to my name."
On Sunday morning, Jon Stewart woke up to a cornucopia of material to write into Monday’s program: Tim Pawlenty’s sad campaign goodbye, Rep. Michele Bachmann’s straw poll victory, Rick Perry’s entry into the race. He somehow covered all his bases and then some tonight: finding plenty of time for the one thing the media didn’t cover: the fact that Rep. Ron Paul has emerged as a top-tier candidate in 2012.
Beginning with the news that Pawlenty exited the race, he attempted to keep awake but, of course, failed. “Here’s the problem with that guy in Iowa: any time he’s around, you can’t work any farm machinery.” He also had some problems understanding that Texas governor Perry, “the Josh Brolin character from W,” was “a real guy,” though he had a pretty convoluted explanation for why he wasn’t “George Bush on steroids” involving horse semen and solar flares.
Stewart then turned to the Sunday morning talk show talking points, and found that, universally, Bachmann, Romney, and Perry were considered the “top tier.” “You’re not forgetting anyone?” Stewart asked, referring to Rep. Paul, who had come in second. Rep. Paul managed to be ignored over Rick Santorum– “he lost to the guy who lost so bad he dropped out of the race”– and Jon Huntsman, who got 69 votes. “If all of Jon Huntsman’s supporters met at the Ames, Iowa Quiznos, the fire marshal would say, ‘yeah, that’s fine, here are some more seats.’” Stewart found it bewildering that Rep. Paul had become “the 13th floor of a hotel,” culminating with a clip of a CNN anchor requesting a reporter leave out the Ron Paul reporting if they found any juicy Sarah Palin stuff– saying, in Stewart’s words, “I mean, f*ck that guy, right?”
