DC Madam Predicted She Would Be Suicided

DC Madam Predicted She Would Be Suicided
“Rape, beating, maiming, disfigurement and more than likely murder disguised in the form of just another jailhouse accident or suicide would await me,” Palfrey wrote – Time Magazine curiously quick to re-affirm suicide story

Click here to listen to Palfrey clearly state that she would not commit suicide.

DC Madam Deborah Jeane Palfrey predicted she would be “suicided” on several occasions both recently and as far back as 17 years ago – comments that now appear ominous in light of the announcement that the former head of a Washington escort service allegedly killed herself today.

“If taken into custody, my physical safety and most probably my very life would be jeopardized,” she wrote in August 1991 following an attempt to bring her to trial, “Rape, beating, maiming, disfigurement and more than likely murder disguised in the form of just another jailhouse accident or suicide would await me,” said Palfrey in a handwritten letter to the judge accusing the San Diego police vice squad of having a vendetta against her.

During several recent appearances on The Alex Jones Show, Palfrey also said that she was at risk of being killed and that authorities would make it look like suicide. She made it clear that she was not suicidal and if she was found dead it would be murder.

Palfrey had threatened to release the names of well-known clients of her upscale call girl ring in the nation’s capitol, and had indicated that Dick Cheney may be one of them.

“We now know it goes at least as high as a United States Senator,” Palfrey told The Alex Jones Show, “I’m hearing rumors now from other people that there are other possibilities in that stratosphere so to speak, on that level.”

“No I’m not planning to commit suicide,” Palfrey told The Alex Jones Show on her last appearance in March, “I’m planning on going into court and defending myself vigorously and exposing the government,” she said.

“Blanche Palfrey had no sign that her daughter was suicidal, and there was no immediate indication that alcohol or drugs were involved, police Capt. Jeffrey Young said,” according to an AP report.

UPDATE: In an almost uncanny development, as soon as this article started to go viral on the Internet, Time Magazine released a story claiming that Palfrey told author Dan Moldea that she would rather commit suicide than go to jail. What a funny coincidence!

 

Eerie Flashback: DC Madam said ’I’d never want my life to end in suicide’
Palfrey rejected suicide in May 2007 interview

Examiner.com
May 2, 2008

When Deborah Jeane Palfrey (aka the “DC Madam,” who was found hanged in Tarpon Springs, Florida on Thursday) sat down in May 2007 for an interview with Carol Joynt, host of the Q&A Cafe interview series, most everything was up in the air: Palfrey faced a criminal indictment on prostitution charges and was fighting courts over how to handle thirteen years of phone records which contained the phone numbers of many clients of her escort service.

But, for Palfrey, one thing was crystal clear during that interview: She would never end her life by hanging herself.

Joynt brought up the subject of Brandy Britton, a Baltimore prostitute whom had occasionally worked for Palfrey and whom had hanged herself in January 2007, only days away from facing prostitution charges.

Palfrey told Joynt in no uncertain terms: “I don’t want to be like her. I don’t want to end up like her.”

In the months following the interview with Joynt, Palfrey’s fortunes took a turn for the worse. In April, a federal jury convicted Palfrey of running a prostitution ring and she awaited her sentencing on July 24, where she faced up to six years in prison.

In the end, Palfrey’s proud and defiant statements about Britton’s tragic end couldn’t stop her own sad conclusion, and it all too closely tracked the final days of her former employee: A woman caught up in an illegal world of sex and money, and for whom the pressure ultimately became too much to bear.

 


Palfrey Considered Call Girl’s “Suicide” Possible Murder
DC Madam employee also found hanged despite family’s insistence she was upbeat, positive

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet
May 1, 2008

DC Madam Deborah Jeane Palfrey, who was found hanged today in what authorities claim was a “suicide,” not only asserted that she would never commit suicide, but also thought the alleged suicide of one of her former call girls was possibly murder.

Brandy Britton was an employee of Palfrey before the D.C. Madam’s prostitution ring was busted. She was found hanged after allegedly committing suicide in January 2007 days before she was set to go to trial.

Asked if the suicide was in fact murder, Palfrey told the Alex Jones Show in July last year, “Well we don’t know about that, there’s two schools of thought – one says yes one says no,”

Asked what the circumstances were that made people question the alleged “suicide” of her former call girl, Palfrey responded, “People say that she was a very upbeat person, a very positive person that she was going into court, she was ready to fight them, that she absolutely was not going to give in and all of a sudden a few days before she was to go to trial she committed suicide and her family members and friends say this was extremely abnormal.”

“She was not in a frame of mind to commit suicide, you know perhaps she knew something, there’s been a lot of speculation about that,” said Palfrey, “She had very little to lose, she wasn’t going to go to jail, she’d been charged on a prostitution case,” added Palfrey, noting that individuals involved in the call girl scandal possibly thought Britton was about to name names.


Brandy Britton

According to a Post Chronicle report, Palfrey and Britton’s alleged “suicides” bear similar hallmarks.

During several recent appearances on The Alex Jones Show, Palfrey conceded that she was at risk of being killed and that authorities would make it look like suicide. She made it clear that she was not suicidal and if she was found dead it would be murder.

“No I’m not planning to commit suicide,” Palfrey told The Alex Jones Show on her last appearance in March, “I’m planning on going into court and defending myself vigorously and exposing the government,” she said.

“Blanche Palfrey had no sign that her daughter was suicidal, and there was no immediate indication that alcohol or drugs were involved, police Capt. Jeffrey Young said,” according to an AP report.

Ron Paul Comes In 2nd In Louisiana

Ron Paul Comes In 2nd In Louisiana

Gambling 911
January 24, 2008

Fbiiraqisbein_mn

Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul enjoys yet another second place finish in a state caucus. This time it’s Louisiana.

The Louisiana contest, however, is not a battleground state in the race for the Republican nomination as candidates have focused on bigger prizes in South Carolina and Florida.

Fred Thompson dropping out of the race helped boost Paul’s vote count.

If Thompson had still been in the race, a Louisiana political source explained to NR, his state delegate strength in Louisiana would have been enough to potentially get him all of the state’s 47 national delegates. The one big problem, though, is that he dropped out only hours before he finally won something.

John McCain won the state Tuesday.

Louisiana voters have become disenchanted with its state’s stance against online gambling. Ron Paul is against Internet gambling prohibition.

 

Paul Raises Nearly $2M On MLK Day

FMNN
January 22, 2008

It’s been a great few days to be a supporter of Ron Paul, and not only because of the successful fundraising day or our great second-place showing in Nevada.

On the endorsement front, Ron Paul has won the support of three significant public figures in the last two days.

Yesterday, former New Mexico Governor Gary “Veto” Johnson announced that he is supporting Dr. Paul for president. Governor Johnson is an icon to small-government conservatives and libertarians for his long-standing commitment to the principles of the Founders. You can read our press release here.

This morning, Ron Paul also received the glowing endorsement of Donald L. Luskin, a prominent financial commentator on CNBC and Chief Investment Officer for Trend Macrolytics LLC. You can read Don’s editorial in National Review about why Ron Paul is right for America here.

Finally, Dr. Paul hosted a press conference this morning with well-known pro-life activist Norma McCorvey, better known as ‘Jane Roe’ from the infamous Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade. Much more good news about the campaign is coming soon.

FOX News Ignores Ron Paul’s 2nd Place Nevada Win


Nevada Caucus – Fox News: Ron Paul nonexistent with 14%

Third Party Watch
January 20, 2008

For some reason, Fox News continues to disregard the fact that Ron Paul is one of the GOP presidential candidates and he didn’t ignore Nevada like most of the presidential candidates.

I received the graphic above in my e-mail (click to enlarge) and don’t know to whom the credit is due. However, this screenshot was obviously taken of Fox News coverage of the Nevada results. For some reason, they failed to mention the 2 candidate, although they covered 1, 3 and 4.

Of course, most folks can easily figure out that Ron Paul was the candidate they “accidentally” forgot to cover.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=sFXqUgRxtzY

Considering Paul’s exclusion from the New Hampshire debate, this incident, and a variety of snide remarks made by Fox commentators, it’s starting to look like Fox News has a political agenda. I wonder how this squares with campaign finance regulations, as corporations aren’t supposed to be making in-kind contributions to federal campaigns. I may disagree with the regulations, but it seems that John McCain shouldn’t be able to benefit like this from a regulation which bears his name.

UPDATE: It looks like Fox is continuing with the same general level of distortion regarding incoming South Carolina results. I’ve been watching the results come in at CNN and haven’t seen any point around the time this particular screen shot was taken when Giuliani was ahead of Paul.

 

Ron Paul Bags Second In Nevada Caucus

Small Government Times
Januay 19, 2008

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQVWAXKl9dg

So-called long shot candidate Ron Paul managed to finish 2nd place in the Nevada caucuses held today, which proves the Texas Representative may have more support around the country, and especially out west, than he’s getting credit for.

Romney destroyed the competition in Nevada with over 50% of the vote and finished first. Ron Paul came in second with 13%, and John McCain finished third, also with 13% but with fewer popular votes than Paul.

Independents overwhelmingly supported Paul in the western state, which clearly helped propel Paul into a much needed second place finish. Normally, independents support the much more liberal John McCain.

Fred Thompson finished fourth, Mike Huckabee fifth and Rudy Giuliani, again falling far short of popular expectations, came in a distant sixth place. Duncan Hunter rounded out the GOP candidates with a seventh place finish, barely picking up 2% of the vote.

Ron Paul compared to a Terrorist on National Television

Ron Paul compared to a Terrorist on National Television
MSNBC Hack Describes Ron Paul As “The Al Qaeda Wing Of The Republican Party”

Steve Watson
Infowars.net
January 18, 2008

MSNBC correspondent David Shuster today compared Ron Paul to a terrorist on live television commenting that the presidential candidate represents “the Al Qaeda wing of the Republican party”.

Shuster, a regular on Hardball with Chris Matthews and other MSNBC programs was responding to comments Matthews himself had made during an appearance on the Jay Leno show.

Matthews stated that the GOP candidates could be compared to tribal factions in Iraq, commenting that that that Mike Huckabee and Fred Thompson are like “the fanatics, the Shia wing” while Rudy Giuliani and John McCain are “the more moderate Sunnis”, with Romney as “the Kurd”.

To describe Rudy Giuliani as “more moderate” is a joke in itself but that is beside the point.

When this exchange was reviewed this morning on MSNBC with Joe Scarborough, Shuster waded in and blurted out “I think it’s a great analogy, I mean Ron Paul is the Al Qaeda wing of the Republican party”. Shuster then began to smirk and laugh as the two anchors attempted to wriggle their way out of the situation.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jEcUTYbuDvY

So there you have it, the mainstream media, in the form of GE owned MSNBC, literally saying Ron Paul is Al Qaeda.

Shuster goes even further than Glenn Beck did last November when he declared Ron Paul’s supporters to be terrorists. Beck and CNN were flooded with complaints, will this happen to MSNBC? (click here to politely complain and demand a retraction)

Despite the fact that Ron Paul is the only GOP candidate who advocates a complete withdrawal from Iraq, despite the fact that Ron Paul is the only candidate advancing a humble foreign policy, despite the fact that Ron Paul is the only candidate to denounce the concept of preemptive war, he is somehow compared to terrorists.

At the core of Ron Paul’s message lies the unimpeded freedom of the individual in America, the very aspect of life we are told on a daily basis by the same mainstream media is the reason “Al Qaeda” wants to kill us all.

Never mind, Ron Paul is Al Qaeda, just accept it. The sad thing is many people listening to Shuster’s idiocy will.

Huckabee: Deliver Iran to “Gates of Hell”

Neocon Selectees: Deliver Iran to “Gates of Hell”

Kurt Nimmo
Truth News
January 12, 2008

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyUXdkrwrd4

During the Faux News “debate,” actually a tightly scripted soap opera, the Huckster said Iran would see the “gates of Hell” if it dared confront U.S. warships parked off its coastline in the Strait of Hormuz.

Mr. Law and Order, faux good ol’ boy Fred Thompson, agreed whole heartedly. “Mr Huckabee has faced grave doubts about his foreign policy experience, his greatest vulnerability, but got one of the biggest cheers of the night when asked about the incident last week when Iranian boats swarmed US navy ships in the Strait of Hormuz,” reports the Times Online.

Asked whether the American commanders on the scene were right in not attacking the Iranian boats, Mr Huckabee said he backed their decisions, before warning Iran: “Be prepared, first, to put your sights on the American vessel. And then be prepared that the next thing you see will be the gates of Hell, because that is exactly what you will see after that.”

Fred Thompson, the former Tennessee senator and Law & Order star who is banking all on victory in South Carolina to revive his campaign, said of the Iranian boat crews: “I think one more step and they would have been introduced to those virgins that they’re looking forward to seeing.” The crowd cheered.

Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor, said: “I think an incident like this reminds us that we shouldn’t be lulled into some false sense of confidence about Iran.”

Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor seeking to become America’s first Mormon president, said: “I believe it was a very serious act.”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7SFPxOd_jM

Indeed, the “crowd cheered,” as they are accustomed to celebrating lies, sort of the same way a well trained monkey dances to an organ grinder. As Gareth Porter notes for Inter Press Service, the entire incident is little more than a boatload of hooey. “Despite the official and media portrayal of the incident in the Strait of Hormuz early Monday morning as a serious threat to U.S. ships from Iranian speedboats that nearly resulted in a ‘battle at sea’, new information over the past three days suggests that the incident did not involve such a threat and that no U.S. commander was on the verge of firing at the Iranian boats.”

In fact, it appears the neocon propaganda spinners exploited the fact “that in the Persian Gulf, the ‘bridge-to-bridge’ radio channel used to communicate between ships ‘is like a bad CB radio’ with many people using it for ‘hurling racial slurs’ and ‘threats.'” Porter writes that a “veteran U.S. naval officer who had served as a surface warfare officer aboard a U.S. Navy destroyer in the Gulf sent a message to the New York Times” indicating that his “first thought” was that the message “might not have even come from one of the Iranian craft.” Pentagon officials later sheepishly admitted to the New York Times that they could not rule out that the broadcast might have come from another source, not the Revolutionary Guard.

In other words, it is certainly not out of the realm of possibility that the entire affair was made up, as the neocons are infamous for making things up as a pretext for mass murder.

Of course, none of this matters because, thanks to the corporate media, a lot of people now believe Iran was ready to attack our precious warships. All it takes to “catapult the propaganda,” as the neocon tool Bush would have it, is to run a few hours of sensationalistic and bogus sound bites on Faux and CNN, rerun file footage of destroyers and fast boats, and of course ominous images of mullahs and fanatical Revolutionary Guards marching in formation.

Bingo, zingo — you have another Gulf of Tonkin, or something perilously close.

Thus serious catapulting as a matter of course occurred during the “debate,” with the selectees pounding their chests like primates and making not so veiled threats against a country that has done absolutely nothing to the American people, not that any actual threat is the reason the neocons have made so much noise about Iran. It has nothing to do with reality. It has everything to do with the neocon plan to deconstruct the Muslim Middle East by way of bunker buster and cruise missile.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLOGak7mYxE


NBC Tonight Show host Jay Leno felt Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul got a raw deal from Fox News after he was excluded from their Sunday night debate.
“He (Ron Paul) is tied with Rudy Giuliani in the state of New Hampshire according to polls. He’s not an obscure candidate,” said Leno, who believes that Fox News excluded Paul simply because they do not like his politics.Supporters of Paul called for a boycott of Fox and all its sponsors last week following the news and the New Hampshire GOP later dropped their sponsorship of Sunday night’s Republican debate. An unprecedented 96% of AOL respondents believed it was unfair to keep the long time Texas Congressman out.Paul is beating Fred Thompson in New Hampshire according to polls while running tight with Giuliani. Both Thompson and Giuliani were invited to participate in the debate.CNN appears to be capitalizing on the Ron Paul fiasco by allowing pools of his supporters to hold signs behind Anderson Cooper throughout his Monday night broadcast, some holding signs that read: “Watch Ron Paul on Jay Leno Tonight”.“I think you got screwed over,” Leno told Ron Paul. He also expressed frustration that neither CNN nor MSNBC were really bringing up the exclusion. “I think this is a big story that’s getting ignored. I thought it was blatantly unfair.”Leno’s message will get out to plenty of people. Leno grabbed 7.2 million viewers last Wednesday, making his show the biggest on late night.

Ron Paul’s 10% In Iowa Shocks Establishment Media


Ron Paul’s 10% In Iowa Shocks Establishment Media
Even Fox News’ own talking heads think decision to exclude from presidential forum should be reversed

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet

January 4, 2008

Ron Paul’s double digit support in Iowa has shocked establishment media figures who have long derided the Congressman as an insignificant candidate with just 2 or 3 per cent of the vote. Even Fox News’ own talking heads now agree that Paul should not be excluded from the upcoming presidential forum as campaign momentum builds.

Dr. Paul blew “national frontrunner” Rudy Giuliani out of the water, who got just 4% of the vote, and is handily placed behind McCain and Thompson heading into New Hampshire.

The Congressman’s strong showing has led to new calls for Fox News to reverse the decision to exclude him from the January 6th presidential forum, not from Ron Paul supporters but from Fox News’ own flagship hosts.

“Ten per cent is not insignificant – that’s a huge number,” said Fox’s Greta van Susteren, appearing with host Shep Smith last night. Smith noted that Paul had more than doubled Giuliani’s total.

“Should Fox News reconsider?” asked Smith, to which Susteren responded, “I’m not sure why he’s out of it (the forum).”

“Here you have a candidate that 10 per cent of the people caucused in his party really want him and it’s not like he’s an insignificant player,” she added.

“He didn’t just drop in yesterday to the process, he has been running for president for a long time, and certainly many of the issues he’s raised are rather provocative and certainly stimulate the debate, that’s not a bad thing – and why not pull up another chair?” Susteren concluded.

Watch it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qi_XBgzHxQs

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and Larry King also noted Paul’s double digit finish during a discussion last night.

“Ron Paul I think is gonna be a factor in New Hampshire on the Republican side much more than he was in Iowa given all the Independents there so let’s not neglect Ron Paul when we’re talking about this,” remarked Blitzer.

Analyzing the Ron Paul Numbers in Iowa
There are a number of reasons to be encouraged by Ron Paul’s showing in Iowa.

Nolan Chart
January 4, 2008


The morning after Ron Paul’s stronger-than-expected 10% showing in Iowa was no surprise to Paul supporters (and probably disappointing to some), but it had to come as a bit of a surprise to most of the pollsters. Over the past week, most pollsters had Paul in the 5-8% range. So 10% pushes the limit on “margin of error” and suggests that Paul supporters have been right all along. His support is underrepresented in the polls.

Paul wasn’t the only candidate the pollsters were wrong about. Rudy Giuliani was consistently polling in mid-teen double-digits up until about a week ago, but he ended up at 4%. He had fallen to the 5-8% range within the past few days, but 4% has to be considered a monumental drop for him. Mike Huckabee’s poll numbers were consistently 5 points lower than what he actually got. The other candidates were pretty much in line with what the pollsters thought they would get.

It’s not a surprise that Huckabee picked up extra points the night of the caucus. People love to vote for the likely “winner,” which is probably where his extra 5% comes from, but the Giuliani and Paul numbers should give pollsters pause to reconsider. Essentially, it looks like Giuliani lost the lion’s share of his support to Paul and Huckabee.

CNN entrance polls are even more interesting when you look at them up close.

For instance (and not surprisingly) when asked to rate their feelings about the Bush administration, Paul supporters represented 54% of those said they were “angry” at Bush out of all “angry” voters. These represented only 5% of the overall totals, which is also not surprising given that most Republican activists are Bush supporters, but it’s very helpful in terms of understanding how much pull Paul could have among the overall electorate who tend to hold our current King George in relatively low esteem.

Paul was also the clear winner among Republican caucus goers who view themselves as being “independent” rather than identifying with the Republican party, with 29% of that group’s support (well ahead of Romney at 19%). Independents accounted for 13% of overall Republican caucus goers.

Paul’s support is stronger among lower-income Americans. He tied for third with John McCain with 14% of people making less than $50,000 a year, and scored a high of 18% (second place) among those making $15,000 to $30,000 annually.

He also finished a strong third among young Iowans. Voters in the 18-29 age range picked Paul 21% of the time, just one tick behind Romney who was in second place.

One thing I couldn’t find was any reference to what the results were among cell phone users. We may have to wait awhile before this information comes out, but it would be very interesting to see how much of Paul’s extra support came from voters who have cell phones but not land lines.

 

The Stages of Ron Paul
Ron Paul’s showing in Iowa is only a phase in a larger picture.

Nolan Chart

January 4, 2007

The Caucus held in Iowa last night is an important stage of the Ron Paul movement and cannot be discounted. Although the Mainstream media will ignore/discredit his numbers, they really do show positive hope for him. Here are 7 stages of his candidacy.

1- The first stage is when he announced he was running. this was about 9 months ago. He had few followers, (I was in this group) and was not taken seriously at all.

2- The second stage is the “few internet spammers” stage. This is when he was accused of having a few 16 year old kids in their moms basement as his supporters.

3- The Internet phenomenon. Online polls started picking up. The meetup groups started forming. It soon became apparent that he was a force online. This soon converted to the straw poll stage. Of course still not taken seriously.

4- The mass fundraising stage. Guy Fawkes says it all. The Boston Tea party showed the world that there is a real revolution going on… Still not taken seriously by MSM.

5- This is the stage we are in now. This is the stage where we find out if internet support can convert to real votes. It appears in Iowa, where Ron Paul did not campaign that much and has views unpopular for farmers had a very well outcome. This is the stage where the rubber meets the road so to speak.

6- The rising star stage. hopefully New Hampshire will propel him into the underdog gone mainstream status.

7- The Viable electable stage. He has the money already. He has a fervent base. He has proven he can bring people to the polls. He just needs the push to get here.

I say this to encourage. I cannot predict the future, but it seems like it could be well with him. Even when the MSM is gloom and doom, it is only spin, and might not be consistant with reality.

Ron Paul Will Finish 3rd in Iowa

Ron Paul Will Finish 3rd in Iowa

Nolan Chart
January 2, 2008

Zogby currently shows Ron Paul tied with Giuliani and Thompson at 8%, and 3 points behind McCain in Iowa, among likely Republican caucus voters.

Another Zogby poll in November showed that Independents and Democrats represent 60% of Paul’s support nationwide. From the last paragraph of Zogby’s press release:

“Paul was the big winner among that universe of voters, winning 33%, compared to 19% for Giuliani, 15% for Romney, and 13% for Thompson.”

If this poll is at all reflective of Paul’s true support, and holds true in Iowa, then his real polling number in Iowa is closer to 20%, which would give him at least a 3rd place finish.

After that, all the rules may change.

 

Ron Paul Running Third in New Hampshire According to Oddsmakers

Gambling911
January 1, 2008

He may have been excluded from participating in an upcoming Fox News New Hampshire debate, but that hasn’t stopped the betting market from overwhelmingly giving US Presidential hopeful Ron Paul a third place finish in the “Live Free or Die” state, well ahead of both Mike Huckabee and Rudy Giuliani.

The oddsmakers at BetUS.com had Ron Paul listed with +1000 odds to win New Hampshire one week before the primary. Compare that with Mitt Romney as the slight -120 favorite and John McCain at even odds. For those of you unfamiliar with how to read the American betting odds displayed at BetUS, +1000 simply means that a $100 bet would pay out $1000 or a $1 bet would pay out $10.

Political prediction markets provide us — the consumers of this information — with a way to cut through this clutter.

A prediction market is a bit like the stock market, except that you are buying shares whose value depends on the success of a political candidate, rather than the profits earned by a corporation. And just as stock prices are a useful barometer of the health of a company, so too the price of a prediction contract is a barometer of the health of a political campaign.

A third place finish in New Hampshire would be something that Ron Paul supporters savor since it solidifies their candidate’s true popularity in the race while putting to rest once and for all the idea that Paul’s supporters are nothing but Internet bots that just happen to be able to raise nearly $20 million in a single quarter.

Gambling911.com reporter, Jennifer Reynolds, believes that if Ron Paul is not seen as a viable candidate, people will simply vote for the individual they believe can win (i.e. a Mitt Romney or a Rudy Giuliani), even though they have a preference for the long time Texas Congressman.

“I have never subscribed to the ‘who is most popular’ method of picking a candidate, I prefer to choose based on substance, but there are many who still believe that it is wasting a vote to vote for the man you want to win if you think he could lose and instead choose a lesser candidate with more of a chance.”

A third place or higher finish in New Hampshire would instill confidence in voters that Ron Paul does indeed have a fighting chance.

Christopher Costigan, Publisher of the Gambling911.com website, points out that this information will have many a Ron Paul supporter extremely delighted in the face of his exclusion by Fox News.

“We have gotten so many emails related to an organized boycott of Fox News and it’s obvious the new year got off to a bad start for Ron Paul supporters with the news about his exclusion,” Costigan said. “As we get closer to a particular race like the New Hampshire primary, these odds tend to become more accurate and there is some suggestion that the Fox ‘controversy, which CNN is starting to capitalize on, will only help to increase his chances of a win in New Hampshire.”

 



Tim Russert predicts Paul could beat Giuliani in Iowa

Tim Russert predicts Paul could beat Giuliani in Iowa

Raw Story
January 2, 2008

Republican presidential contender Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) could be poised to beat Rudy Giuliani — once perceived as a frontrunner for the GOP nomination — in Thursday’s Iowa caucus voting, according to NBC’s Tim Russert.

Appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe program for a discussion about the latest Iowa polling numbers, Russert said Paul could realistically score a fourth place showing in the state.

“Having gone around and watching this thing,” said Russert, “to say for example Huckabee wins, Romney is two. McCain comes in third. Thompson is out — he has already said if he’s not two, he’s out. I think Ron Paul has a chance of coming in fourth here. I really do.”

Assuming former Sen. Fred Thompson (R-TN) took fifth, Russert added that it appeared likely Giuliani could slip to a lowly sixth place finish.

Conservative pundit and two-time Republican presidential aspirant Pat Buchanan said he believed the former New York mayor was now facing an uphill fight for his party’s nomination.

“I think Rudy is toast…I mean, you can’t go 0-4, 0-5, and come back and win Florida,” said Buchanan of the possibility that Giuliani could fair poorly in the opening contests of the primary season.

Giuliani has not campaigned heavily in Iowa, choosing instead to adopt a national strategy focused on other states, such as Florida, that vote later in the primary process. More than twenty states, including New York and California go to the polls on February 5.

“When you get to Florida and the February 5th states,” Giuliani told Fox News, “we’re ahead in some cases by large percentages and in some case by closer percentages. We believe it’s a good strategy and it’s going to work.”

The latest poll from Iowa’s Des Moines Register tallies Giuliani’s support in the state at five percent. Paul and Thompson each notch nine percent.

Ron Paul Breaks Record, $6+ Million in 24 Hours

Ron Paul Sets All-Time Fundraising Record

Nolan Chart
December 17, 2007


This screenshot was taken 3 minutes after the fundraiser ended

Unofficially, the Ron Paul campaign raised $5.92 million dollars on-line yesterday. That’s the largest amount every raised by any candidate on-line in any electoral campaign ever, anywhere. Over 57,668 Paul supporters can be justly proud of themselves and delighted about what those kind of funds can bring to their campaign.

The Boston Tea Party blitz “broke the thermometer” on the $12 million campaign quarterly goal within the first few hours. Reporters and columnists will probably be quibbling about what records it actually broke for the next week, while they’re taking rides on the Ron Paul Blimp. Volunteer promoter Trevor Lyman will probably be getting more than his 15 minutes of fame.

Campaign Records

Candidates are not required to record contribution receipts on the day they are received. They are only required to exercise “due diligence” in entering the data prior to the end of the quarter, for reporting to the Federal Election Commission (FEC). Campaign offices may have stacks of checks received during the course of a week, before allocating staff to do the required data entry before a reporting deadline.

As a result, there is no way to tell, from FEC reports, what day the contributions were sent or received. The only thing known is when they were entered into the computerized reporting systems. The last day of a quarterly reporting period may be the most hectic. That’s when Hillary Clinton’s campaign entered $6.2 million dollars of contributions: June 30, 2007. At the time, her campaign publicized several million-dollar fundraising events in the prior week, but took no credit for any one-day record for receipts.

Ron Paul beat that record too! In addition to the on-line contributions, he received over $400,000+ in off-line contributions on Sunday, bringing his verified record one-day fundraising total of $6.32 million.

On-Line Receipts

In the 2004 presidential campaign, John Kerry took in $2.7 million from on-line contributions (automatically recorded into their systems on that day) two days after he “locked up” the nomination: March 6, 2004. That record was broken by the November 5th Ron Paul Money Bomb that brought in $4.2 million.

However, FEC records indicate that the Kerry campaign entered an additional $3.0 million on the same day. There is no way to tell when those additional funds were sent or received. Nevertheless, the total of $5.7 million has been reported as a one-day fundraising record for Kerry. Ron Paul total receipts broke that dubious record by more than a half-million dollars.

Quarterly Records

The 4th Quarter FEC reports are not due until ten days after January 1st, 2008. Given Ron Paul’s totals, it is unlikely that any competitors will be bragging about their quarterly totals before the numbers are released by the FEC, well after the Iowa and Wyoming caucuses and the New Hampshire and Michigan primaries.

At this point, the Ron Paul effort is projected to raise over $21 million for the fourth quarter. That exceeds the third quarter totals reported by every other Republican candidate for President. None of them have reported their receipts so far this quarter, although Mike Huckabee was delighted with breaking a $2.0 million campaign goal last week. At the beginning of this quarter, Ron Paul had more cash on hand ($5m+) than any other Republican candidate except Rudy Giuliani and Fred Thompson. Both Romney and McCain were in the red, due to debts incurred by their campaigns (for Romney, three loans from his own pocket).

For too many months, reporters have discounted Ron Paul’s credibility. He either couldn’t raise enough money (“the mother’s milk of politics”) or he couldn’t develop enough grass-roots support to turn out voters. On the first count, Paul is now the apparent leader in Republican Presidential candidate fundraising. He will undoubtedly be hiring more staff and buying more advertising. But, for real grass-roots activists, none of the campaigns even come close to the 77,949 real people who are participating in MeetUp events around the country. That’s twice as many committed supporters as all of the other campaigns (Republican and Democrat) combined. There are a dozen other social internet groups with tens of thousands of Paul supporters. In terms of grass-roots activism, nobody even comes close to the Ron Paul rEVOLution squads.

Next Sunday, Tim Russert will not be able to sayYou can’t win” to Ron Paul’s face. That hour-long appearance on Meet The Press will expose millions more to the Ron Paul message. What astounds the other campaigns is that Ron has no “handlers” to “prep him” for this major appearance. He doesn’t need them. He’s been practicing for 30 years and never varied in his principles. He is naturally eloquent and he can be totally honest, because he respects voters and knows the facts. There will be a lot of people astounded by the successes of the Ron Paul campaign. And they will be astounded again when the January election results start arriving.

The Ties That Bind Rick Perry & Rudy Giuliani

The Ties That Bind Rick Perry & Rudy Giuliani

Aaron Dykes
JonesReport
December 14, 2007

As Texas Governor Rick Perry goes on the road to stump for Giuliani’s campaign, it is increasingly clear that the two figureheads not only share a penchant for presiding over thinly-veiled corruption, but do their presiding in the same globalist circles.

Perry’s appearance at the secretive Bilderberg meeting in 2007 gives credence to whispers about the Texas Governor becoming a GOP running mate alongside Giuliani, even as Perry denies interest in being VP. Bilderberg has a noted and well-deserved reputation as kingmaker.

Together, Rick Perry, as Governor, and Rudy Giuliani, as a named partner in the Houston-based Bracewell & Giuliani, have been instrumental in selling off Texas infrastructure and utilities while ushering in agents of globalism and (North American Union) regional control.

TRANS-TEXAS CORRIDOR

Giuliani’s law firm is heavily tied to Rick Perry’s Texas-style ‘Big Dig’– a highly contentious and very real Trans-Texas Corridor that has foreign firms building up on land seized in the face of opposition from both the state legislature and the people.

Bracewell & Giuliani is exclusively representing the Spanish-owned Cintra and essentially won the contract to build the first ever private toll road in Texas. The Online Journal refers to Bracewell & Giuliani as “the ‘guiding’ law firm on the privatization of Texas State Highway 121”

Cintra is further partnered with the Australian company Macquarie, who “previously acquired the business and assets of an investment bank known as Giuliani Capital Advisors,” according to Cliff Kincaid who further observes:

Terri Hall, founder and director of Texans Uniting for Reform and Freedom (TURF), notes that Giuliani clients with an interest in acquiring Texas roads and infrastructure have also invested in his presidential campaign. She comments, “This could explain why Giuliani has spent so much time fundraising in Texas. The monied proponents of the Trans-Texas Corridor, of which there are many, would like to see this man become President.

Perry’s advocacy for the TTC has been unwavering and he has refused to back down even after the legislature passed a two-year moratorium. Perry called in U.S. Secretary of Transportation Mary Peters to lobby against the moratorium while publicly declaring that there is no alternative to toll roads (Peters has, of course, been present at a number of NAFTA super-highway meetings as well).

Bracewell & Giuliani gave Rick Perry $20,000 in PAC money in the 2006 cycle. Current Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott was also a partner in Bracewell & Giuliani, which Lobby Watch suggests was related to his run for office after stepping down from the Texas Supreme Court. He received $25,000 in PAC contributions in the 2006 cycle.

TxU BUYOUT

As we previously reported, the ‘largest ever’ buyout of TxU (now slashed from $45 billion to $32 billion) was managed by KKR, who are represented annually at Bilderberg by partner Henry Kravis.

“Energy Future bought TXU Corp. in a $32 billion leveraged buyout that closed in October. It was formed by Kohlberg, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co., TPG, formerly Texas Pacific Group, and other investors,” reports the Dallas Morning News.

The deal stalled over environmental issues with TxU’s plans for new coal plants, but never faltered thanks to cheerleading by Rick Perry as well as personal appearances by Henry Kravis, who is known as a virtuoso in the world of leveraged buyouts (see Barbarians at the Gate which dramatizes his infamous high-priced buyout with R.J. Reynolds and also features a younger but no less-aged Fred Thompson).

Governor Perry was involved in facilitating the TxU buyout, including the issuance of an executive order to instigate fast-track approval for TxU plant deals:

“Last year, after private meetings with TXU executives, Perry fast-tracked the permitting process for TXU’s 11-plant expansion through an executive order, slashing the time frame in half, to six months….”

“The bottom line: Only Governor Perry and TXU, which stands to make a lot of money, are championing these plants.”

Goldman Sachs and Credit Suisse First Boston (both deeply nested in Bilderberg) were also involved in the deal while Bracewell & Giuliani represented TxU (as they handle a number of energy companies). A number of criminal insider trading cases involving Pakistani financiers working inside these firms– including Hafiz Naseem– have already been prosecuted as a result of the buyout. Others, still under investigation, are potentially outstanding.

In fact, Hafiz Naseem, then a Credit Suisse investor, was defended by Bracewell & Giuliani’s Marc Mukasey, who is the son of U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey. Bracewell’s Mukasey commented that the “case is inference built on inference built on inference.” However, prosecutors were investigating other links to alleged inside trading that went as high as Pakistani Prime Minister Aziz, who is also a former Citigroup chairman. Investigators also believe there was a link to al Qaeda money laundering.

MEXICO

And what about Mexico? If a continent-wide merger is underway, it seems to coincide with the cozy relationship Perry and Vicente Fox had as contemporaries. As WND reports, the vision to expand the Corridor into Mexico is heavily discussed and well under way.

On May 24, Gonzáles Parás announced during his recent meetings in Austin, Perry had agreed the envisioned Trans North America Corridor would pass through Laredo and connect with San Antonio, just as Mexico ultimately planned to extend the superhighway south into Colombia.

Note also that the current U.S. ambassador to Mexico is none other than Bracewell & Giuliani partner Tony Garza (who is, incidentally, married to Mexico’s richest woman, billionaire Grupo Modelo heiress María Asunción Aramburuzabala).

Wolfowitz Back in Bush Administration

Bush Administration Offers Paul Wolfowitz Top State Department Job

Michael Isikoff
Newsweek
December 2, 2007

Don’t ever say the Bush administration doesn’t take care of its own. Nearly three years after Paul Wolfowitz resigned as deputy Defense secretary and six months after his stormy departure as president of the World Bank—amid allegations that he improperly awarded a raise to his girlfriend—he’s in line to return to public service. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has offered Wolfowitz, a prime architect of the Iraq War, a position as chairman of the International Security Advisory Board, a prestigious State Department panel, according to two department sources who declined to be identified discussing personnel matters. The 18-member panel, which has access to highly classified intelligence, advises Rice on disarmament, nuclear proliferation, WMD issues and other matters. “We think he is well suited and will do an excellent job,” said one senior official.

Wolfowitz, now a visiting scholar at the conservative American Enterprise Institute, will replace former senator Fred Thompson, who quit over the summer to run for president. Although officials declined to say how Rice came to choose him, Wolfowitz began his government career in the 1970s in the State Department as an arms-control expert; he forged a relationship with Rice during the 2000 presidential campaign, when they both served as top foreign-policy advisers to the then candidate Bush. But his selection has raised more than a few eyebrows within State because he’ll be providing advice on some of the same issues that critics say the administration got spectacularly wrong when Wolfowitz was pushing the case for the Iraq War at the Pentagon. (One of the department sources called the appointment “amazing.”) At least Wolfowitz, who did not return calls seeking comment, will have like-minded company: other panel members include Robert Joseph, the former National Security Council official in charge of Iraq WMD intelligence, and ex-CIA director James Woolsey, both strong allies during the Iraq debate.

The sources said Wolfowitz has already accepted Rice’s offer to fill the part-time position, though it won’t be announced until the completion of a standard check for conflicts of interest. But he won’t have to worry about any complaints from pesky Democrats. The position doesn’t require Senate confirmation.

 

Bush Lays Secrecy Defense Over Abramhoff

AP
December 2, 2007

The Bush administration is laying out a new secrecy defense in an effort to end a court battle about the White House visits of now-imprisoned lobbyist Jack Abramoff.

The administration agreed last year to produce all responsive records about the visits “without redactions or claims of exemption,” according to a court order.

But in a court filing Friday night, administration lawyers said that the Secret Service has identified a category of highly sensitive documents that might contain information sought in a lawsuit about Abramoff’s trips to the White House.

The Justice Department, citing a Cold War-era court ruling, declared that the contents of the “Sensitive Security Records” cannot be publicly revealed even though they could show whether Abramoff made more visits to the White House than those already acknowledged.

“The simple act of doing so … would reveal sensitive information about the methods used by the Secret Service to carry out its protective function,” the Justice Department argued.

“This is an extraordinary development and it raises the specter that there were additional contacts with President Bush or other high White House officials that have yet to be disclosed,” said Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group that filed the suit. “We’ve alleged that the government has committed misconduct in this litigation and frankly this is more fuel for that fire.”

A response by White House spokesman Trey Bohn referred to the Secret Service, saying, “We have nothing to add to the USSS. position as stated in the court filing.”

Sensitive Security Records are created in the course of conducting more extensive background checks on certain visitors to the White House. In sworn statements accompanying the filing, two Secret Service officers said the extra attention is paid to some visitors because of their background, “the circumstances of the visits” or both.

The Sensitive Security Records were discovered in the course of another lawsuit seeking similar records, the court papers state.

Another private group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, also has requested Secret Service records of Abramoff’s White House visits. On Friday, the Justice Department asked for a consolidation of the two cases. Such a move would take the CREW case from U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth and give it to Judge Rosemary M. Collyer, an appointee of the current president who is hearing the Judicial Watch case. Lamberth, a federal judge for two decades, has taken both Republican and Democratic administrations to task during his tenure.

To date, the government has turned over Secret Service records referring to seven White House visits by Abramoff — six of them in the early months of the Bush administration in 2001 and the seventh in early 2004 just before Abramoff came under criminal investigation.

The White House has released little information about the visits, but none of them appears to involve a small group meeting with President Bush.

Nearly two years ago, just after Abramoff had pleaded guilty in the influence peddling scandal, Bush told reporters, “I can’t say I didn’t ever meet” Abramoff, “but I meet a lot of people.”

“I don’t know him,” Bush said at the presidential news conference in January 2006. “I’ve never sat down with him and had a discussion with the guy.”

After Bush’s comments, Abramoff wrote an e-mail to the national editor of Washingtonian magazine saying that Bush had seen him “in almost a dozen settings, and joked with me about a bunch of things, including details of my kids. Perhaps he has forgotten everything, who knows.”

Time magazine reported that its reporters had been shown five photographs of Bush and Abramoff. Most of them, the magazine said, had “the formal look of photos taken at presidential receptions.”

In an attempt to bolster its case, the Justice Department is citing a lawsuit on a secret operation of the Cold War, the attempted raising of a sunken Soviet submarine. In a 1976 ruling, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit allowed the CIA to refuse to confirm or deny its ties to Howard Hughes’ submarine retrieval ship, the Glomar Explorer.

“A refusal to either confirm or deny the existence of responsive records is a well-recognized and accepted response in circumstances such as these,” the Bush administration’s court filing states.

The Justice Department probe of Abramoff and his team of lobbyists has led to convictions of a dozen people, including former Rep. Bob Ney, R-Ohio, former White House official David Safavian and former Deputy Interior Secretary Steven Griles.

Abramoff is serving six years in prison on a criminal case out of Florida. He has not yet been sentenced on charges of mail fraud, conspiracy and tax evasion stemming from the influence-peddling scandal in Washington.

 



Ron Paul’s 30th Drive Reaches More Than Half a Million


Ron Paul’s 30th Drive Reaches More Than Half a Million

The Rudy’s Reading List money “bomb-let” won’t produce the kind of numbers that the 5th of November money bomb produced, but it’s creating a nice little fundraising tweener for the Ron Paul campaign.

Walt Thiessen
Nolan Chart
November 30, 2007

Halfway through the day today, there has been a definite jump in donations for the Ron Paul campaign. According to this graph at Ron Paul Graphs, donations for the first half of the day are about $200,000 higher than normal. The counter at Rudy’s Reading List shows about 2,300 committed donors. Since the 5th of November money bomb produced total revenue of $4.3 million from roughly 20,000 committed donors (plus an additional 20,000 or so who didn’t commit via the website) a reasonable extrapolation would suggest that $430,000 might be expected from today’s money bomb-let.

While well below what organizers of today’s fundraiser were hoping for, it’s still a respectable number. For contrast, consider that Howard Dean’s best fundraising day in 2004 was $700,000, so the Rudy’s Reading List bomb-let is still in very respectable company as far as online political fundraising goes. Also, there is very little doubt that the Paul campaign will appreciate today’s cash influx. An email they sent out a little more than a week ago pleaded with donors to give sooner than the Tea Party money bomb scheduled for December 16th, because they need to purchase advertising now for January. TV and radio stations don’t wait…they give their timeslots on a first-come, first-served basis.

There’s no word yet as to whether Rudy Giuliani has actually read any of the assigned reading given him by Dr. Paul last Spring. At this late date, it appears likely that Giuliani has probably blown off his homework entirely.

As for the aforementioned Tea Party money bomb, that site currently shows nearly 22,000 donors have signed up to-date. If donors on that day give the way that donors gave on November 5th, Dr. Paul could be looking forward to more than $5 million in one day, which would break his own one-day record, and that’s if the fundraiser were to happen today. With 16 days left before that fundraiser makes its own waves among the mainstream media, Dr. Paul could be looking at a $10 million day. Given the fact that his campaign reached the $10 million mark for the 4th quarter, it would mean a total quarter haul of over $20 million. Early January should be very, very interesting between the large media buys, the 1,000+ volunteers descending on New Hampshire, and a blimp flying around the country with Dr. Paul’s name plastered on it.

And that’s only based on what we know so far. Who knows what else those wonderful Paulites will come up with over the next 30 days, as the start of the primary season approaches.

The Dirt on Huckabee

Huckabee’s Record: Freed a Rapist Who Became a Killer, Destroyed Gov’t Hard Drives, Misappropriated Funds, Raised Taxes

Brad Blog
November 28, 2007

Recent polls show that Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas and Baptist preacher, is rising in popularity in Iowa, where he is cutting into Mitt Romney’s lead. (Romney has 28 percent, Huckabee has 24 percent in the ABC news survey; Romney is at 27 percent and Huckabee’s at 18 percent in the local KCCI-TV poll.) He’s also moving up in in Florida, where he’s running second to Rudolph Giuliani, 26 percent to 17 percent — leaving good ol’ boy actor Fred Thompson in fifth place with 9 percent.

With Thompson’s campaign fading, Huckabee becomes the last best hope for the GOP’s Christian nationalist base. Unlike Thompson, Huckabee is authentically one of them. He believes in the inerrancy of the Bible and says he does not believe in evolution. He wants to amend the Constitution to outlaw abortion, and he is the only candidate who has smeared a gay person in the debates, so far.

But Mike Huckabee comes with some serious baggage, and with his rise in the polls comes new scrutiny of his record as governor Arkansas, both in the media and by his opponents, who are quickly finding his record in Little Rock to be what opposition researchers might call a “target-rich environment.”

The scandals associated with the Huckabee administration in Arkansas include:

  • A rapist released at Huckabee’s behest who went on to murder his next victim
  • Accusations that Huckabee and his family misappropriated tax-payer funds for personal use
  • The charge that at the end of his term, Huckabee ordered the destruction of government computers worth over $300,000, apparently to obstruct possible future investigations
  • While he was governor, the state of Arkansas raised taxes by hundreds of millions of dollars

Details follow:

Fox Accuses Ron Paul Campaign Of Using Botnets

Fox Accuses Ron Paul Campaign Of Using Botnets

Kurt Nimmo
Truth News
November 1, 2007

“Ron Paul supporters may be using e-mail spam and dirty tricks to gin up support for their presidential candidate on the Internet,” Fox News claims, and then drags out an expert to pour on the slime.

“This is clearly a criminal act in support of a campaign, which has been committed with or without [its] knowledge,” University of Alabama at Birmingham computer-forensics expert Gary Warner told Wired News. “Warner says his lab traced the e-mails back to servers in Asia, Africa, South America and Europe—signifying that whoever sent them may have used a botnet, or world-wide network of hijacked computers, to pump out massive volumes of e-mail.”

Of course, it is entirely possible over zealous Paul supporters are guilty of such tactics. As well, it is possible a neocon or “conservative” operative is guilty of attempting to heap dirt on the Ron Paul campaign, although Fox does not bother to reach this conclusion. No wonder they are considered “fair and balanced.”

“Ron Paul spokesman Jesse Benton says the campaign has no knowledge of the scam. Warner himself says that he has no reason to believe that the Paul campaign had anything to do with these messages,” adds Wired News. “Some participants in the online political world have long suspected Paul’s technically sophisticated fan base of manipulating online tools and polls to boost the appearance of a wide base of support. But the UAB analysis is the first to document any internet shenanigans.”

Of course, any such “shenanigans”—real, imagined, or conducted by dirty tricksters tasked with taking out the libertarian candidate—pale in comparison to the concerted corporate media and big political machine effort to ignore Paul and lock him out of the election process.

“The finding is significant, because Paul’s online support—as gauged by blog mentions, friends on social-networking sites such as MySpace and popularity in online polls—has garnered him wide mainstream print and television coverage, despite his relatively poor performance in offline polling,” Wired continues.

Naturally, Ron Paul’s grassroots and ingenious viral campaign irks the heck out of his opponents because it is not a dog and pony show controlled by transnational “news” and “entertainment” corporations, determined to shove Bilderberg Hillary or Rudy the mob boss stand-in down the throats of voting Americans.

Ron Paul Has Mandate For Equal Time

Ron Paul Has Mandate For Equal Time

USA Daily
October 18, 2007

Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul has broken through to the top tier of Republican candidates running for president. He knows it, GOP voters know it, and as previously reported; media outlets are grudgingly admitting it.

Ron Paul commented on the issue in a message to supporters, “The blackout is ending; our campaign is starting to get mainstream media attention, thanks to growing donations and volunteers.”

Ron Paul continued in his message to supporters:

“All over America, our support is wide and deep and growing, and young people are joining like never before. After the Dearborn debate, I went to the University of Michigan for a rally. 2,000 students turned out, something that has happened to no other candidate this year.”

It is a remarkable fact that Ron Paul has consistently drawn crowds all across the country that continuously seem to dwarf those of his opponents. Given the scant media coverage Paul has received it is a testament that his message is resonating.

The Republican Party appears to be recognizing that Ron Paul has a chance of winning the nomination. Paul said to supporters:

“After all the aggressive wars, the assaults on our privacy and civil liberties, the oppressive taxation, and the crazed spending and deficits, I believe that many Republican voters are ready to return to our roots. And the big boys feel it too.It is no coincidence that the Republican National Committee invited me to a fundraising dinner involving only top-tier candidates.”

Commenting on Alan Greenspan’s recent interview on the Fox Business Channel Paul said:

” the reporter asked if we really needed a central bank. Greenspan looked stunned, and then said that was a good question; he actually talked about fiat money vs. a gold standard. Now, the ex-Fed chairman is not about to endorse our sound monetary policy, but you know our Revolution is working when such a question is asked in the mainstream media, and this powerful man gives such an answer.”

He continued on about the crowd of 2000 at his campaign’s Dearborn rally:

“They cheered all our ideas, but especially our opposition to the Federal Reserve, and our support for real money of gold and silver, as the Constitution mandates, instead of prosperity-wrecking fiat money. American politics hasn’t seen anything like this in many decades. It is truly revolutionary”.

Ron Paul’s campaign does not appear to be willing to sit in the background of the presidential race any longer and made that very clear Wednesday during a press conference. Paul’s campaign pointed out that only four candidates remain viable at this time in the Republican field.

Paul’s campaign highlighted that according to the financial reports, the indication is that the only viable candidates where Rudy Giuliani, Fred Thompson, and Ron Paul. Mitt Romney’s campaign is viable as long as he continues to spend his personal wealth.

Ron Paul’s campaign may do many things in this election but it has already made media polls irrelevant suggesting them to be an outdated obsolete method of rating candidates. If the polls were accurate Dr. Paul should not be in third place in the GOP money race.

The cable networks have been giving a disproportionate amount of time in televised debates to what they believed to be the top tier of candidates (Giuliani, Romney, Thompson, and McCain). Fox News, to their credit has already started giving Paul more coverage than before.

‘Expect a reshuffling of that order, replacing McCain with Paul during the Fox News debate in Orlando Florida this Sunday, or viewers may see a flashback to the famous Ronald Reagan line from a presidential debate, when he said, “I’m paying for this microphone” but instead, Paul might say, “the American people have paid for this microphone”

CFR Pushes For Regional Monetary Integration

CFR Pushes For Regional Monetary Integration

Lee Rogers
Rogue Government
October 17, 2007

The traitors at the The Council of Foreign Relations are set to release a book entitled Regional Monetary Integration. The book is written by Council on Foreign Relations member Peter B. Kenen and Ellen Meade an Associate Professor at American University. The book analyzes the prospects of regional monetary integration around the world and what it would mean for the United States.

Below is a synopsis of this soon to be released book direct from the Council on Foreign Relations.

This book surveys the prospects for regional monetary integration in various parts of the world. Beginning with a brief review of the theory of optimal currency areas, it goes on to examine the structure and functioning of the European Monetary Union, then turns to the prospects for monetary integration elsewhere in the world—North America, South America, and East Asia. Such cooperation may take the form of full-fledged monetary unions or looser forms of monetary cooperation. Regional Monetary Integration emphasizes the economic and institutional requirements for successful monetary integration, including the need for a single central bank in the case of a full-fledged monetary union and the corresponding need for multinational institutions to safeguard the bank’s independence and assure its accountability. The book concludes with a chapter on the implications of monetary integration for the United States and the U.S. dollar.

According to the synopsis, the authors endorse the concept of a regional central bank to control a regional monetary union. The authors see prospects for regional monetary integration in North America, South America and Asia. With this in mind, it is clear that these two authors support the concept of a North American Central Bank, a South American Central Bank and an Asian Central Bank to control monetary policy in those regions of the world.

This is not the first time that the Council on Foreign Relations has released material endorsing the idea of regional currencies. Benn Steil another member of the Council on Foreign Relations wrote an essay entitled The End Of National Currency which concluded that national currencies were incompatible with a global economy.

This book release from the CFR is more proof that this think tank seeks to undermine national sovereignty not just here in the United States but around the world.

Bill Clinton’s mentor, Carole Quigley was quoted as saying the following about the CFR.

“The CFR is the American Branch of a society which originated in England and believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one-world rule established.”

The power and influence of the CFR is much like a shadow government. Several of the 2008 Presidential candidates including the likes of Mitt Romney, John McCain, Fred Thompson, Chris Dodd, Bill Richardson, John Edwards and Hillary Clinton are either members or have close affiliations with this think tank. What are the odds that so many people running for President would be linked to this group? More proof of their influence can be seen with their Building a North American Community document which laid out much of what eventually became the Security and Prosperity Partnership the 2005 agreement with Canada and Mexico that George W. Bush went along with despite all sorts of Constitutional problems with him doing so.

This new book from the CFR should give us insight into how we will see the global elites attempt monetary integration in various regions of the world. The book is set to be released in November of 2007. If anything, the title of the book shows that these people care not about the American people’s wishes or the Constitution. They are hell bent on furthering the aims of globalism through the creation of regional institutions and eventually a one world government.

What is the ‘North American Union’?

 



Republicans saber rattle on Iran

Republicans saber rattle on Iran

AFP
October 16, 2007

WASHINGTON (AFP) – Republican White House candidates pounded Iran Tuesday, with Rudolph Giuliani warning of a military strike to deprive it of a nuclear bomb, and a top rival lashing “terror masters” in Tehran.

The candidates talked tough before the receptive audience of the Republican Jewish Coalition, fleshing out already hawkish stands on the Iran, emerging as a dominant foreign policy issue in the 2008 campaign.

Giuliani, running on his legacy as New York’s mayor after the September 11 attacks in 2001, sharpened his rhetoric as the campaign raced towards first party nominating contests in less than 90 days.

The date of the first of those contests, the fabled Iowa caucuses was expected to be set by Republicans in the state later Tuesday for January 3, in the earliest start ever to a US electoral contest.

Giuliani said every new American president prayed to avoid war, but accused Tehran of backing attacks on US troops in Iraq, and ruled out the notion of America learning to live with a nuclear Iran.

“We have seen what Iran will do with ordinary weapons,” Giuliani told a forum of presidential candidates organized by the coalition.

“If I am president of the United States, I guarantee you, we will never find out what they will do if they get nuclear weapons, because they are not going to get a nuclear weapon.”

“The military option is not off the table. If America is clear that we will exercise the military option, the chances that we will have to do it decline.”

Giuliani, who leads national Republican polls, said there was no doubt Iran was building nuclear weapons — a charge Tehran denies, saying its effort is designed to meet energy needs.

Fred Thompson, the former actor and senator who jumped into the race last month, hit out at Iran and Syria, a tactic popular with the hawkish base of core Republican voters candidates are trying to woo.

“The terror masters in Tehran and Damascus make only the most minor distinction between America and Israel,” Thompson said.

“They say America is the ‘Great Satan’ and Israel is the ‘Little Satan’ and both must be destroyed.

“The US must make it clear that we will not allow Iran to be a nuclear threat,” Thompson said, calling for greater steps to get rid of the “hated regime” in Tehran.

Attacking Iran is good politics for Republican candidates, allowing them to pose as robust on national security, paper over differences with the party’s social conservative wing, and detract attention from the issue of what to do about Iraq.

Hawkish rhetoric is part of every US election campaign, though it is not always followed up with action, once the victorious candidate faces the reality of conducting foreign policy in a difficult world.

Giuliani also used the issue of Iran to hammer another rival, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney.

At a debate on October 9, Romney, asked whether he would seek authorization from Congress before launching a military strike against Iran, replied: “You sit down with your attorneys and they tell you what you have to do.”

Giuliani compared the moment to when he threw late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat out of a United Nations concert in New York.

“I didn’t call for a team of lawyers, to tell me, ‘on the one hand we can throw him out, but on the other, maybe we can partially throw him out'”.

“I just made a decision. I led.”

Romney joined other Republicans Tuesday in accusing Democratic 2008 candidates, particularly front-runner Hillary Clinton and her chief rival Barack Obama, of weakness on Iran.

“It is time for Democrats to break their silence and answer this question — will you act to stop a nuclear Iran? Let me assure you I will,” he said.

On Monday, Clinton said in a new foreign policy essay that the United States should offer Tehran a calibrated package of incentives for it to renounce nuclear development, reject terrorism and back Middle East peace moves.

But she and her aides clearly also stated that she would not take the military option off the table if negotiations failed.

Ron Paul Supporters Prove CNBC’s Ratings Stink

Ron Paul Supporters Prove CNBC’s Ratings Stink

Mark Anderson
Op Ed News
October 13, 2007

After the most recent Republican Party debate on CNBC, the network ran a post-debate poll, which was promptly removed after too many Ron Paul supporters voted. In all seriousness, the explanation for removal is that Ron Paul supporters voted. In other words: CNBC didn’t like the results, so then removed their own poll.

This prompts the question: if poll results are to be discarded because you don’t like the results, then why even run a poll? This almost causes me to wonder if the “scientific” and “legitimate” polls are also designed to achieve a pre-ordained outcome. If a polling company gets something other than a desired result, do they change the results, or throw the poll out altogether?

In the CNBC editor’s explanation, he writes: “Now Paul is a fine gentleman with some substantial backing and, by the way, was a dynamic presence throughout the debate , but I haven’t seen him pull those kind of numbers in any ‘legit’ poll.”

You see? Pursuant to this calculus, all polls must show the same results – which makes them something other than real polls. If there is a disparity between two polls, then the one showing Ron Paul in the lead must be wrong, and then discarded. If, on the other hand, say, Rudy Giuliani had won the poll by a hefty margin, would they have discarded those results as well?

Which prompts the question: if Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, Fred Thompson, and John McCain are the true front-runners, with legions of fans everywhere, why can’t they replicate the same thing Ron Paul supporters are doing? Where are the supporters for the other candidates?

What exactly makes the offline polls so much more scientific? In those polls, the polling companies get to choose the respondents. In online polls, people can choose to respond. Let’s not forget that elections are not conducted the same way polls are. The media and the polling companies do not get to choose who they want to vote.

Ron Paul has dominated virtually every single post-debate poll, causing the media to ignore and conceal the results of their own polls. The media has ignored so many Ron Paul debate poll victories that I have lost count. After Ron Paul does well in a poll, there is always some status quo conspiracy theorist to come along and accuse Ron Paul supporters of “spamming” or “hacking” polls, albeit without offering any evidence.

Many people who have researched this issue more than I have concluded that “spamming” polls isn’t as easy as pretended. For example: polling software will prevent a single Internet Protocol address (i.e., I.P. address, which is unique for every computer) from voting more than once.

Okay. So it is possible to vote a plurality of times in a single poll. Although I have never attempted to vote more than once in any poll, theoretically, I could have pulled off such a feat by voting once on my computer, and then, I suppose, drive to a friend’s house to vote from their computer as well. But so could any other candidate’s supporter do the same thing.

If we are to assume that if Ron Paul does well in a poll, it must have been due to a certain percentage of spam votes, then it would only be fair to assume the same trend for all of the candidates. Do Ron Paul supporters have super-secret poll spamming technology that nobody else knows of? Are only Ron Paul supporters motivated enough to attempt this?

Or, what about Sean Hannity explaining away the results of FOX News’ own poll by saying that Ron Paul supporters were “re-dialing” in text messages? That one was done via cellular phone text messaging, and it was impossible to vote more than once from one cell phone. Well, I suppose I could own more than one cell phone. But then so could any of the other candidate’s supporters. Only Ron Paul supporters “cheat” now? Is that it?

BTW, I only have one cellular phone, as I can barely afford to pay my only cellular phone bill.

If Ron Paul supporters are so technologically savvy, are so willing to cheat, and possess such secretive technology that seems to escape everybody else, then I must say I feel much more re-assured about the future of U.S. elections. We should have no problem stopping Diebold from tampering with the real election results, right?

It shouldn’t be so hard to believe Ron Paul could do well in polls for those who pay careful attention to the news. Albeit, one has to look hard for the news coverage. Ron Paul has been doing very well at straw polls. “Spamming” a straw poll in which the person must show up and vote in the flesh would be a fairly difficult feat to pull off.

When I looked at the results of the CNBC poll which was removed, the first thought that came to my mind was that CNBC may be trying to conceal more than just another Ron Paul victory.

There were just over 7,000 votes cast in their poll. Ron Paul garnered 75% of the vote. This means approximately 5,250 votes were cast for Ron Paul, leaving the other 8 candidates with a combined total of approximately 1,750 votes.

If we are compelled to abide by the mainstream media’s “scientific” curve, then we are allowed to give Ron Paul no more than, say, 2% of the total. This means we can add approximately 36 votes for Ron Paul onto the 1,750, throwing out 5,214 Ron Paul votes. This leaves us with a grand total of 1,786 votes cast on CNBC’s post-debate poll.

What do I see in this? Either a)There was no spamming, in which case Ron Paul supporters outnumber CNBC viewers by far, or b)As CNBC claims, Ron Paul’s total has to match the “scientific” polls, making everything else “spam,” meaning CNBC had only 1,786 viewers who voted in the poll.

From what I can tell, CNBC should be very concerned about its own ratings. The old media is dead. If polls showed that more than .05% of the population watches CNBC, I couldn’t believe it. I would have to discard those poll results. Maybe CNBC is trying to conceal its piss poor ratings.

How else do you explain the supporters of a man garnering “2%” in the “scientific” polls organizing so effectively that they are able to skew poll results of a network television station 3-to-1 in their favor, against 8 other candidates?

Congressman comes out on top despite being given least time, least questions and despite CNBC pulling its poll half way through

October 11, 2007

Ron Paul won another debate by a landslide this week despite efforts on the part of the mainstream media to limit the Congressman’s exposure and to force Rudy Giuliani down the necks of viewers.

According to an MSNBC online poll participated by over 22,000 people, Texas Congressman Ron Paul won the Tuesday night GOP Michigan debate in a landslide.

As shown in the screenshot, when asked who they thought was standing out from the pack, Paul received 86% of the online vote.

Critics have again charged that the polls were deluged by Ron Paul internet spammers. Recently hacks such as Sean Hannity and others have suggested their own polls have been fixed simply because Ron Paul won them.

In a familiar move CNBC even removed its own poll on Tuesday night just hours after the debate had ended when they realized Ron Paul was winning by such a wide margin.

Many Neo-Con blog sites do not even include Ron Paul in their polls anymore because too many people are voting for him! This is not as a result of one person voting multiple times, as in all the online polls only one vote per IP address is allowed, but the operators of the site simply don’t like Ron Paul and have chosen to ignore reality and pretend that he doesn’t exist.

In another poll this week, so called “conservative” bloggers listed Paul as their most hated “person on the right”, even though he is the most conservative Congressman in office!

In addition to CNBC pulling their poll, and continued attacks on the Congressman, the anchors of the debate on Tuesday night only allowed Paul a total of 5:44 minutes to speak, just over 6.5% of the time allotted in total to all candidates. In addition Dr Paul was only asked 7 questions, where as Giuliani and Fred Thompson were both asked over double that amount.

Ron Paul wowed viewers once again both during the debate and afterwards as he slammed the candidates who willingly accepted the idea of striking Iran from the air without the authorization of Congress:

“Why don’t we just open up the Constitution and read it? You’re not allowed to go to war without a declaration of war. Now, as far as fleeting enemies goes, yes– if there’s an imminent attack on us. We’ve never had that happen to us in 220 years. The idea that Iran could pose an imminent attack on the United States is preposterous. There’s no way.”

“This is just war propaganda preparing this nation to go to war and spread this war not only into Iraq but into Iran unconstitutionally. It is a road to disaster for us as a nation. It is the road to our financial disaster if we don’t read the Constitution once in a while.”

Afterwards the Congressman hit out at the current Administration, describing them as “all big government people” and calling for massive cuts in spending.

 

CNBC On Why They Pulled Debate Poll

CNBC
October 12, 2007

Dear folks,

You guys are good. Real good. You are truly a force on World Wide Web and I tip my hat to you.

That’s based on my first hand experience of your work regarding our CNBC Republican candidate debate. After the debate, we put up a poll on our Web site asking who readers thought won the debate. You guys flooded it.

Now these Internet polls are admittedly unscientific and subject to hacking. In the end, they are really just a way to engage the reader and take a quick temperature reading of your audience. Nothing more and nothing less. The cyber equivalent of asking the room for a show of hands on a certain question.

So there was our after-debate poll. The numbers grew … 7,000-plus votes after a couple of hours … and Ron Paul was at 75%.

Now Paul is a fine gentleman with some substantial backing and, by the way, was a dynamic presence throughout the debate , but I haven’t seen him pull those kind of numbers in any “legit” poll. Our poll was either hacked or the target of a campaign. So we took the poll down.

The next day, our email basked was flooded with Ron Paul support messages. And the computer logs showed the poll had been hit with traffic from Ron Paul chat sites. I learned other Internet polls that night had been hit in similar fashion. Congratulations. You folks are obviously well-organized and feel strongly about your candidate and I can’t help but admire that.

But you also ruined the purpose of the poll. It was no longer an honest “show of hands” — it suddenly was a platform for beating the Ron Paul drum. That certainly wasn’t our intention and certainly doesn’t serve our readers … at least those who aren’t already in the Ron Paul camp.

Some of you Ron Paul fans take issue with my decision to take the poll down. Fine. When a well-organized and committed “few” can throw the results of a system meant to reflect the sentiments of “the many,” I get a little worried. I’d take it down again.

Sincerely,

Allen Wastler
Managing Editor, CNBC.com

U.S. Troops Thought Killing Civilians Was Legal

U.S. Troops Thought Killing Civilians Was Legal

Irish Examiner
September 5, 2007

The documents, released yesterday by the American Civil Liberties Union ahead of a lawsuit, total nearly 10,000 pages of courts martial summaries, transcripts and military reports about 22 incidents.

The killings include the drowning of a man soldiers pushed from a bridge into the Tigris river as punishment for breaking curfew, and the suffocation during interrogation of a former Iraqi general believed to be helping insurgents.

Soldiers covered the man’s head with a sleeping bag, then wrapped his neck with an electrical cord in what they insisted was an approved technique.

Chief Warrant Officer Lewis Welshofer was convicted of negligent homicide over the death of Major General Abed Hamed Mowhoush at a January 2006 court martial that got wide media attention due to possible CIA involvement in the interrogation.

Welshofer insisted his actions were appropriate and standard.

“Interrogation is supposed to be stressful or you will get no information,” Welshofer wrote in a letter to the court asking for clemency. An interrogation without stress is not an interrogation – it is a conversation.”

Welshofer said in the same letter that he was “within the appropriate constraints that both the rules of law, and just as importantly, duty, imposed on me”.

Meanwhile, Baghdad has not met 11 of its 18 political and security goals, according to an independent report on Iraq that challenges US President George W Bush’s assessment on the war.

The study, conducted by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) was slightly more upbeat than initially planned. After receiving substantial pushback from the White House, the GAO determined four benchmarks – instead of two – had been partially met.

But GAO stuck with its original contention that only three goals out of the 18 had been achieved.

The goals met included establishing joint security stations in the capital Baghdad, ensuring minority rights in the Iraqi legislature and creating support committees for the Baghdad security plan.
