Giuliani: New York Survived 9/11 Because Of Me

Giuliani: New York City Survived 9/11 Attacks Because Of Me

Think Progress
January 9, 2008

In a Wall Street Journal op-ed today on homeland security, Rudy Giuliani references September 11 nine separate times. In one of those instances, he claims he prepared New York City well to “withstand the 9/11 attack“:

One reason New York City was able to withstand the 9/11 attack was that we were prepared to meet 21st-century security threats. … And while we didn’t anticipate the specific scenario of 9/11, the constant practice, and the relentless follow-up from actual emergencies, certainly helped in its aftermath.

Jim Riches, a deputy New York City fire chief who lost a son at the Trade Center, has a very different perspective:

“Lives were lost because of the lack of preparation and (Giuliani’s) lack of leadership,” said Riches, who spent 16 days in a coma after the attacks due to respiratory failure. “All he did was run that day, and get on TV and provide a calming influence for the United States of America. And they made him a hero.”

Because of Giuliani’s failures, first responders were forced to use old radio equipment on 9/11 that prevented them from hearing evacuation orders when the World Trade Center buildings were about to collapse. The radios had malfunctioned eight years earlier, during the 1993 attacks on the WTC.

Giuliani claimed last month, “It would have been impossible for me to have those radios ready.” It would not have been impossible. After the 1993 incident, Giuliani gave Motorola a $14-million no-bid contract to produce faulty radios that had to be taken out of service in March 2001. Brave New Films released this web video detailing the negative impact Giuliani’s no-bid decision had on firefighters on 9/11.

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.

9/11 Workers Confront Giuliani in New Hampshire
Ailing 9/11 Workers Confront Giuliani In New Hampshire

Sam Stein

The Huffington Post

January 6, 2007
Finishing a disappointing sixth in the Iowa caucus and staring down a similarly poor result in New Hampshire, Rudy Giuliani has yet another problem on his hand.
Before Saturday’s GOP debate, several members of the 9/11 recovery effort will be stationed outside the forum petitioning the former New York City Mayor to discuss the mishandled health safety issues following the 2001 terrorist attacks.

The protest coincides with and promotes a new short video by Robert Greenwald and Brave New Films, which uses the testimony of these 9/11 workers to detail the dangerous conditions and serious illnesses encountered at the recovery site.

Still today, many suffer from violent coughs, severe asthma, and pulmonary and mental health issues. Giuliani, the workers note, is not responsible for their sicknesses, but he did not sufficiently warn about the hazards at the site and, more importantly, has done next to nothing to help the thousands who are suffering from recovery-related ailments.

“The hypocrisy of running a campaign on a 9/11 agenda and you have these people still dying and becoming much sicker then they were a year or two years prior is really insulting,” Alex Sanchex, a janitorial worker, says in the film.

Greenwald told the Huffington Post: “These first responders are not blaming Rudy for being sick, they are asking why he has done nothing to help them since they got sick. They want to meet with him and ask what he is going to do to help them. They have tried to call and meet with him. Nothing. He who is Mr. 9.11 has abandoned the real heroes of 9/11.”

More than 2,000 New York City firefighters have been treated for serious respiratory problems following their work at the World Trade Center recovery site. Toxic dust from that area has been directly linked to sarcoidosis, a debilitating disease that FDNY members now develop at five times the rate they had previous to working around the toxins.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1P-VUTjM0Ko

Following the Democrats takeover of Congress in 2006, hearings were held to determine what went wrong in exposing these firefighters to such porous conditions. Much blame was laid at the feat of the then-EPA chief Christie Todd Whitman. Subsequently, several investigations have called into question the extent of Giuliani’s knowledge and handling of the hazardous 9/11 site.

According to the New York Times, in the aftermath of 9/11 Giuliani “seized control and largely limited the influence of experienced federal agencies” during the clean up effort, but “never meaningfully enforced federal requirements that those at the site wear respirators.” Moreover, the paper added, Guiliani “warned companies working on the pile that they would face penalties or be fired if work slowed.”

But what has drawn the ire of the recovery workers is not what Giuliani did in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11, but rather how he has seemingly forsaken their plight in favor of focusing on his business and political careers. Giuliani, Greenwald notes, has offered no assistance to other New York elected officials in efforts to lobby the federal government for funds for victim treatment. He won’t even meet with the victims themselves.

“The fact of ignoring those who sacrificed the most while he profits and profiteers from 9/11 is a scandal and is disgusting,” the filmmaker said.

The remarks echoed those made in the film by Mike McCormack, a USAF Auxiliary Civil Air Patrolman: “After he left office, you may have to turn in your key to the city. But I don’t believe turning in your moral compass and responsibility to people who trust you. That shouldn’t fall at the wayside.”

This is the third Giuliani movie made by Greenwald and Brave New Films. The first looked at Giuliani’s decision to put New York’s terrorist response center in the World Trace Center complex – a known and obvious terrorist target. The second focused on Giulaini’s failures to upgrade the faulty radios used by FDNY members on 9/11.

NH GOP Withdraws Support From Fox News Debate

NH GOP Withdraws Support From Fox News Debate

Daily Paul
January 5, 2008

CONCORD – New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman Fergus Cullen releases the following statement regarding Sunday’s Republican forum on FOX:

“The first-in-the-nation New Hampshire primary serves a national purpose by giving all candidates an equal opportunity on a level playing field. Only in New Hampshire do lesser known, lesser funded underdogs have a fighting chance to establish themselves as national figures. Consistent with that tradition, we believe all recognized major candidates should have an equal opportunity to participate in pre-primary debates and forums.

This principle applies to tonight’s debates on ABC as well as Sunday’s planned forum on FOX. The New Hampshire Republican Party believes Congressmen Ron Paul and Duncan Hunter should be included in the FOX forum on Sunday evening. Our mutual efforts to resolve this difference have failed.

While we understand that FOX News continues to move forward it is with regret, the New Hampshire Republican Party hereby withdraws as a partner in this forum.”


New Hampshire GOP has quit as a co-sponsor of tomorrow night’s nationally televised Fox News Debate

Union Leader
January 5, 2008

The New Hampshire Republican Party has quit “with regret” as a co-sponsor of Sunday night’s nationally televised GOP forum on FOX News.

The 8 p.m. event at Saint Anselm College — the last debate before Tuesday’s primary — became controversial when FOX refused to include Ron Paul.

In a press release, state Republican Party chairman Fergus Cullen said on Saturday afternoon, “We believe all recognized major candidates should have an equal opportunity to participate in pre-primary debates and forums. This principle applies to tonight’s debates on ABC as well as Sunday’s planned forum on FOX. The New Hampshire Republican Party believes Congressmen Ron Paul and Duncan Hunter should be included in the FOX forum on Sunday evening. Our mutual efforts to resolve this difference have failed.”

FOX News issued a one-sentence statement this afternoon from its vice president of news, David Rhodes: “We look forward to presenting a substantive forum which will serve as the first program of its kind this election season.”

“The New Hampshire Republican Party did the right thing by pulling its sponsorship,” said Ron Paul 2008 spokesman Jesse Benton, who called FOX’s continued refusal to admit his candidate “unfair.”

Paul is included in tonight’s ABC/Facebook/WMUR debate among top Republican contenders, which begins at 7 p.m.

 

Paul Doubles Polling Numbers, Third In New Hampshire
Ron Paul has doubled his support in New Hampshire over the past 15 days, according to Rasmussen Reports.

Nolan Chart
December 5, 2008

A daily poll by Rasmussen is showing Ron Paul has doubled his share of the vote in New Hampshire, jumping from 7% up to 14% in just 15 days. Obviously, this is major news. The Rasmussen website was so jammed with Ron Paul supporters earlier today trying to get to it right now that no one can get through. That alone shows the power of the Ron Paul revolution. We’re not talking about a boycott or a bunch of angry activists. We’re just talking about tens of thousands of people trying to view a web page because news has spread like wildfire throughout the net that Ron Paul is now polling in third place in New Hampshire.

While the Rasmussen page remains under seige from all the demand, you can read the actual numbers at pollster.com.

Ron Paul: Fox News Is “Beyond A Joke”
Presidential candidate slams decision to exclude him from forum

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet
January 4, 2008


Speaking to The Alex Jones Show today, presidential candidate Ron Paul commented on the controversy surrounding his exclusion from a Fox News January 6th presidential forum by encouraging supporters to keep up the pressure on the network to reverse their decision and slamming the network’s claim of being fair and balanced as “beyond a joke”.

“People are outraged and a lot of them are coming to our defense including the Republican Party up there so we haven’t heard the last word about that yet,” said Paul.

The Congressman identified the main reason for his exclusion as Fox News’ fear that he would express strong anti-war opinions, which they see as a “threat” when coming from the most conservative member of the house.

“They have to realize that what the numbers are and if it’s hurting them, if it’s not in their interests I think they’re in a bind, I don’t think they have any easy way out and they dug themselves into this situation so hopefully they wake up and realize that they have to come around to be much more fair and balanced, it’s gone beyond a joke for them to advertise they’re fair and balanced when they’re just the opposite,” said the Congressman.

Discussing the broader success of the campaign, Paul said, “Everybody’s upbeat and they wanna win but they are also very realistic to know what is the future regardless of what’s gonna happen….how can we keep working this, how can we keep our group together….I think we’ve really opened the eyes of a lot of people so there’s reason to be optimistic,” said Paul.

The Congressman added that the New World Order must be defeated not with weapons but with ideas and that the movement which he is now the figurehead for is much larger than he ever dreamed it would be.

“Most people thought that you’d have to be part of the establishment to get money and support but the supporters have proven that not only will they work hard and go out and do the legwork that is necessary but they’ll also send in the money and they’ll also be very creative,” added Paul.

Giuliani’s Advisor Calls For Palestinian Collapse

Giuliani’s Advisor Calls For Palestinian Collapse

Ethan Allen
Rogue Government
January 4, 2008


Daniel Pipes, a neocon analyst and Giuliani campaign advisor, recently wrote a piece for JewishWorldReview stating that a Palestinian economic collapse would be good for Israel and the west. Throughout the Bush administration, warhawks like Pipes have been leading foreign policy and encouraging deeper commitments of the west in supporting Israel’s open warfare campaigns against the Palestinian people. In his recent article, Pipes states:

“Exhilaration, not hardship, accounts for bellicose Palestinian behavior. Accordingly, whatever reduces Palestinian confidence is a good thing. A failed economy depresses the Palestinians’ mood, not to speak of their military and other capabilities, and so brings resolution closer.

Palestinians must experience the bitter crucible of defeat before they will drop their foul goal of eliminating their Israeli neighbor and begin to build their own economy, polity, society, and culture. No short-cut to this happy outcome exists. Who truly cares for Palestinians must want their despair to come quickly, so that a skilled and dignified people can move beyond its current barbarism and built something decent.

The huge and wasted outpouring of Western financial aid, ironically, brings on that despair in two ways: by encouraging terrorism and by distorting the economy, both of which imply economic decline. Rarely has the law of unintended consequences worked so imaginatively.”

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.

Watch it.

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 Raises Near $20 Million In Quarter

Ron Paul Raises Near $20 Million In Quarter

Ron Paul 2008

January 1, 2008

ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA –Texas Congressman Ron Paul’s presidential campaign had a record fundraising quarter, exceeding its original goal of $12 million by over 50 percent when it raised nearly $20 million during the months of October, November and December.

“Only Dr. Paul has the ability to inspire Americans to contribute and take action that is necessary if Republicans want to defeat the Democrats in November,” said campaign chairman Kent Snyder.

In two 24-hour periods on November 5 and December 16, the campaign raised over $10 million dollars. The total of over $19.5 million represents an increase of nearly 300 percent from its third quarter total of $5.28 million.

For the quarter, the campaign had over 130,000 donors, including over 107,000 new donors. The total was reached with an average donation size that was just under $90.

Of the other Republican candidates, only Mike Huckabee – who reported $5.04 million this quarter – discloses his fundraising total online. However, Dr. Paul’s total is over $9 million more than any Republican candidate raised in the third quarter.

Giuliani: It was ‘impossible’ for the 9/11 firefighters to have working radios

Giuliani: It was ‘impossible’ for the 9/11 firefighters to have working radios

Raw Story
December 24, 2007

Former New York City mayor and Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani talks to George Stephanopoulos about accusations that firefighters died on 9/11 due to radios that Giuliani himself knew weren’t suitable for use.

Giuliani has been personally blamed for the deaths of firefighters on September 11, 2001, including by NYFD Deputy Fire Chief James Riches, whose son, also a firefighter, died at Ground Zero. Giuliani is not only accused of providing faulty equipment, but also of ending the search for survivors too early.

“I feel very bad about that,” responds Giuliani. “I mean, I feel very bad about the whole situation.”

“Myself,” he continues, “and all the people that are involved in this have been very hurt by this, and it creates a lot of pain. It creates a lot of suffering. And, if they’re angry at me, so be it. I did everything I could–I did everything I could think of doing in that situation to help.

“I think I made mostly the right decisions.”

Says Giuliani about the radios in question: “Well, the radios that you’re talking about weren’t put online for three, four, five years after, so it would have been impossible for me to have those radios ready.

“It took the city two, three more years.”

Responds Stephanopoulos, “But they had a malfunction in 1993.”

As Think Progress points out, it wasn’t impossible for firefighters to have working radios when entering the twin towers, had the no-bid contract with Motorola produced a product that worked properly after the 1993 malfunctions; the faulty replacements were decommissioned in March of 2001, leaving the firefighters using the same radios inside the World Trade Center in 2001 that they had in 1993.

One Think Progress commenter, identifying as “Comrade Rutherford,” says that New York City might be continually equipping firefighters with radios that aren’t suitable to begin with:

As a amatuer (sic) radio enthusiast I was flabbergasted to learn (back in the day) that the NYFD were on VHF, but the NYPD was on UHF. The higher frequenices (sic) of the police band at 460 MHz can get out of buildings better than VHF, making for more reliable communications from *inside buildings*. The fire dept was on 154 MHz for many, many years (are they still?). This frequency range has larger dead areas inside buidlings (sic) meaning that you have to carefully move around to get your radio into a hot spot to be able to communicate reliably. If you move at all, you lose the signal. Now imagine having to do that while the building is burning around you and the message you need to send is of life or death. Many other cities have long ago moved their emergency comm to 800 MHz, and digital radio is now here. But wasn’t it Giuliani that made a sweet-heart deal with Motorola for the Radios That Didn’t Work?

Video of the exchange is available below, as broadcast on ABC’s This Week on December 23, 2007.

The latest cover of the American Conservative depicts Rudy Giuliani in a fascist uniform. Ali Eteraz notes “it’s interesting that paleo conservatives feel this strongly against Rudy.”

Glenn Greenwald has a piece in the magazine arguing that, as NYC mayor, Giuliani “developed a reputation as a power-hungry, dissent-intolerant authoritarian, obsessed with secrecy and expanding his own power.”

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).

Mitt Romney to Buy Clear Channel Communications

Mitt Romney to Buy Clear Channel Communications

LRC Blog
December 13, 2007

What would it cost to buy the support of just about every nationally-syndicated neocon talk show host in America? About $19.5 Billion, which is what Mitt Romney’s private equity firm, Bain Capital, and Thomas H. Lee Partners have agreed to pay in a leveraged buyout agreement with Clear Channel Communications, the largest radio station owner in the country.

Clear Channel owns over 1,100 full-power AM, FM, and shortwave radio stations, twelve radio channels on XM Satellite Radio, and more than 30 television stations in the United States. Premiere Radio Networks, which is the largest syndication company in the United States, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Clear Channel and is home to Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and many others. Sean Hannity recently signed a large multi-market contract with Clear Channel, as well.

From an anonymous email:

“I’ll bet those hosts won’t reveal that conflict of interest, but it’s worth noting when you hear them begin hyping Romney, which has already begun. A lot of GOP supporters will support whomever they are told to support, so be prepared for a big push for Romney. On the bright side, Romney has more vulnerabilities than Rudy, based on his record. Look at this as the GOP establishment doing us a favor. Rich men can bankroll their own campaigns (a la John Kerry), but it takes a special breed to use investors’ money to buy entire networks that can operate as passive wings of a presidential campaign.”

Ron Paul Turnout May Shock the Iowa Caucus

Ron Paul Turnout May Shock the Iowa Caucus

Matt Towery
The National Ledger
December 9, 2007


Ron Paul Rally in Philidelphia, Nov. 10, photo by AppalIT

“Listen. Do you want to know a secret? Do you promise not to tell?” No, it’s not the lyrics to the famed Beatles song. This is deep politics and strategy. What has seemed for so long to be a far-distant Iowa caucus is now about to arrive in less than a month. First, the secrets. There are plenty of people who’ve worked in presidential campaigns, or who have deep knowledge of how the system works.

For them, this will not come as a great surprise, especially for those who are familiar with the old term “street money.” They’ll know that street money was used primarily in Southern or big-city elections in the past. Maybe it won’t come as a surprise, either, that there has also been a more quietly kept tradition of “cash for a vote” in past Iowa contests.

Here’s how it has worked in some instances: Potential voters were recruited by deep-pocketed campaigns, often from states other than Iowa. They were put on buses to be delivered to the appointed caucus locations.

While Iowa has taken measures to end the “invasion” of out-of-state participants in this year’s caucus, it’s unlikely that the use of “gratuities” by at least one or two campaigns will come to an end.

Is there proof positive, a smoking gun or a photo of $100 exchanging hands for any voter’s participation? Absolutely not. But then again, there has never been that same evidence for the widely accepted fact that payment of voters in the Southern and big-city races has taken place. But it has.

The real problem this go-round is that some of the big-money candidates have squandered their cash. One wonders whether their campaigns, or their friends, have managed to hold on to enough loot to provide the presents and gratuities necessary to pull otherwise uninterested voters out of their homes, to force them to remain locked in some community center, where they must listen to advocates for candidates and remain firmly entrenched in the corner of the facility until their candidates’ votes are finally counted.

And, of course, those buses are less likely this time to be carrying any shipment of “Iowans” who just happen to reside outside the state. In other words, it may well be that just as “street money” is a dying tradition in the South, its Midwestern equivalent is dying off as well.

Let me make it clear: This past practice was not limited to one political party. More importantly, those in the know in Iowa plan to be on high alert for indications of gratuity incentives that might be used to increase voter turnout in January.

And that brings me to what I increasingly believe will be the “shocker” in the Iowa caucus. Let me make it clear that my vague description of activities above has nothing to do with the prediction I’m about to make.

As I’ve written in prior columns, I find it hard to believe that massive numbers of voters returning from their New Year’s celebrations — in a state where it gets dark at 4:30 p.m. and is likely to be very cold — will be compelled to leave the toasty confines of their homes and abandon watching the Orange Bowl game in order to vote in a caucus.

Under this theory, turnout will be impossible to predict. There are many theories that I’ve already explored about which candidates, of both major parties, might benefit from this quirky set of circumstances created by the move of the Iowa caucus to Jan. 3. But the one candidate I believe could benefit above all others will be GOP candidate Ron Paul. Iowa political insiders I’ve talked to agree.

After covering the public appearances of various presidential candidates on the Republican side, and even participating in the seemingly secure atmosphere of a post-debate media “spin room,” I have been amazed at the zeal of Ron Paul supporters to appear in huge numbers.

What received little coverage out of last week’s CNN-YouTube debate in Florida was that the biggest demonstration outside the hall was a parade of Paul supporters. Inside the spin room, where credentialed journalists and, now, bloggers are allowed to interview candidates and their surrogates, a seemingly unknown but large group of “reporters” surrounded Paul.

At a recent Rudy Giuliani rally, the Paul supporters virtually outnumbered the Giuliani crowd.

All of this tells me that what looks like 6 percent of the vote for Paul in states like Iowa could easily, especially where turnout is low, move toward double digits. From what my friends in Iowa are telling me, Huckabee or some other candidate may emerge the winner, but the big story that night may be that the contrarian Paul could find himself placing ahead of some really big names. Time will tell.

Israel warns Iran to co-operate or pay the price

Israel warns Iran to co-operate or pay the price

The Age
December 7, 2007

ISRAEL has warned Iran to either co-operate with the West over its uranium enrichment program or face military action.

Ron Prosor, Israel’s newly appointed ambassador to Britain and one of his country’s leading experts on Iran’s nuclear program, said that Tehran could enrich enough uranium to make an atomic bomb by 2009.

“At the current rate of progress, Iran will reach the technical threshold for producing fissile material by 2009,” he said.

“This is a global threat and it requires a global response.

“It should be made clear that if Iran does not co-operate, then military confrontation is inevitable. It is either co-operation or confrontation.”

Mr Prosor, who served Ehud Olmert, the Israeli Prime Minister, as his senior adviser on Iran, said that time for resolving the nuclear issue was rapidly running out. But he was non-committal about the possibility of Israel launching military action.

“There needs to be full verification of what is happening in Iran,” Mr Prosor said. “In Israel, there is a belief that the Iranians are continuing with their nuclear weapons program.”

U.S. and allies continue to push for sanctions against Iran

RIA Novosti
December 5, 2007

The U.S. and its European allies are continuing to seek stronger sanctions against Iran despite an intelligence report that says the Islamic Republic halted efforts to build a nuclear weapon in 2003.

The U.S. National Intelligence Estimate (NIE), published on Monday, stated that Tehran had put a stop to weapons production in 2003, although it was continuing to enrich uranium.

The report contradicted a previous U.S. intelligence assessment in 2005 which said that Iran was actively pursuing a nuclear bomb.

However, the U.S. envoy to the UN, Zalmay Khalilzad, said on Tuesday that he had received no new instructions from the Bush administration, and that he was preparing to complete work on a new sanctions resolution.

Commenting on the NIE at a news briefing, Khalilzad said, “Let me say what the NIE says and what it doesn’t say. The NIE says that there was a covert military dedicated nuclear weapons program. That in 2003 stopped because of international pressure… But, it does not say that Iran does not have the intention to develop a nuclear weapons capability, that it has abandoned the goal of acquiring a nuclear weapons capability permanently.”

The envoy’s words echoed those of President George W. Bush, who said on Tuesday that, “Iran was dangerous, Iran is dangerous and Iran will be dangerous if they have the know-how to make a nuclear weapon.”

When asked if military action remained an option, the president answered, “The best diplomacy – effective diplomacy – is one in which all options are on the table.”

“What’s to say they couldn’t start another covert nuclear weapons program?” the president told a news conference at the White House.

International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) chief Mohamed ElBaradei welcomed the report, saying it was consistent with the agency’s own findings and that it “should prompt Iran to work actively with the IAEA to clarify specific aspects of its past and present nuclear program.”

“This would allow the agency to provide the required assurances regarding the nature of the program.”

Russia, which has previously stated its opposition to increased sanctions against Teheran, did not comment on the NIE, although President Vladimir Putin insisted that Iran’s nuclear program should be transparent and carried out under the supervision of the UN’s nuclear watchdog, the IAEA. Iran’s foreign minister was in Moscow on Tuesday for talks.

China has, however, demonstrated its opposition to new sanctions in more direct terms, saying that the UN Security Council would have to take into account the new information because “now things have changed”.

Britain and France, who have backed U.S. calls for sanctions in the past, reiterated their commitment to maintaining pressure on Iran.

“We must maintain pressure on Iran,” said French Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Pascale Andreani. “There is no new element that could make us change our position.”

British Foreign Secretary David Miliband told BBC Radio that, “None of us want to see Iran as a nuclear proliferator. … We have got to be clear there are negative consequences if they pursue enrichment which could lead to a nuclear weapons program.”

Two sets of mild UN sanctions are already in place against Iran. China and Russia have both so far blocked the imposition of any new round of punitive measures against the Islamic Republic.

Rudy Drowned Out By Ron Paul Supporters

Atlanta Journal Constitution
December 2, 2007

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3JCiHAjcjQ

It was Rudy Giuliani campaigning for president on the Marietta Square on Sunday afternoon, but anyone listening may well have thought the candidate’s name was Ron Paul.

“RON PAUL! RON PAUL! RON PAUL!” — a crowd chanted from Glover Park, effectively drowning out comments from the former New York mayor and occasionally changing the chant to “FREEDOM! FREEDOM! FREEDOM!”

enthusiastic, lungs than the middle-aged crowd of Giuliani’s gaggle, who responded with a college try — “Rudy! Rudy! Rudy!” — while the Paul cadres tailed the GOP front runner on his walking photo op in downtown Marietta.

The Paul backers, handing out their own candidate’s literature, said they were more interested in a president who would truly try to shrink government, not just promise to do it, and who promises outright to bring the troops home from Iraq.

“You’re being very inconsiderate,” an elderly woman, aghast at the lack of Southern manners, told three young female Paul acolytes.

“You’re not helping your candidate with this,” a middle-aged man told a 20-something man toting a blue-and-white Paul campaign sign.

“This is a Republican rally,” a testy older man snapped, apparently forgetting that Paul, a physician and Libertarian by philosophy, is an elected Republican and running in the GOP primary for president.

His supporters simply answered, “RON PAUL! RON PAUL! RON PAUL!”

“We just came by to say, ‘Hey,’ ” said Rob Miller, a 35-year-old Paul supporter with a mischievous grin, who with his cohorts said their candidate would trounce Giuliani in the New Hampshire primary.

A weary looking Giuliani, in metro Atlanta for a Buckhead fund-raiser, started his tour of Marietta at The Brumby Chair Co. on the west side of the historical square. The store is owned by Otis Brumby Jr., publisher of the Marietta Daily Journal.

Along with Brumby, U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) and state House Speaker Glenn Richardson, who co-chairs Giuiani’s campaign in Georgia, gave the candidate a less-boisterous welcome.

Paul: Republicans Face Certain Defeat With Pro-War Candidate


Paul: Republicans Face Certain Defeat With Pro-War Candidate
Congressman says base must change views on Iraq or forget about the White House in 2008

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet
December 3, 2007

Ron Paul has a message for the Republican base who continue to offer blinkered support for the endless occupation of Iraq – pick a candidate who has vowed to bring the troops home immediately or surrender the White House in 2008.

“Since 70 per cent of the American people want out of the war and they’re tired of it – the Republicans better pick somebody who is opposed to the war or have a new foreign policy or they can’t win,” the Congressman told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer yesterday.

“The sentiment is shifting, the people are sick and tired of the war, we can’t even afford it, we can’t even fight the war without borrowing the money from the Chinese – so it doesn’t add up – it really doesn’t matter whether I’m right or wrong, the war is going to end because we’re going to have such a political and financial havoc here….this is usually how empires end – by spending too much money maintaining their empires,” he added.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTj3STZqviY

The Congressman’s warning is backed up by the polls. A recent Zogby survey found that a sizeable majority of Americans will not vote for a pro-war candidate. Zogby polling analyst Fritz Wenzel agrees that Ron Paul is the strongest contender out of the entire Republican field to go up against Hillary Clinton because of his lone anti-war stance.

In an earlier part of the interview, the Congressman elaborated on his response to Senator John McCain’s feeble attempt to smear Paul as a Nazi appeaser during Wednesday night’s debate.

“First off, Iraq is not Nazi Germany,” a humored Paul commented.

“I thought it was Hitler that caused world war two, not the American people….it didn’t make any sense – then he was awfully confused about isolationism versus non-intervention – there’s a big difference,” said the Congressman.

Paul said that non-interventionism meant not getting involved in other country’s affairs and “not pretending that Iraq is Nazi Germany.”

“Iraq had no army, no navy, and no weapons of mass destruction – it had nothing to do with 9/11 – so the comparison makes no sense,” he concluded.

McCain’s claim that U.S. troops want to stay in Iraq has no basis in reality.

Out of all the Republican candidates, Ron Paul has by received far the highest military donations, that is donations from members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard. The Congressman has received double McCain’s total and over eight times the amount garnered by Romney or Giuliani.

The troops support Ron Paul because Ron Paul advocates bringing the troops home.

Moreover, a recent Zogby poll found that the Congressman also has the highest support amongst military families, far ahead of Giuliani, McCain or any of the other Republican stooges who want to keep the troops in the meat grinder.

 

Obama Supporters Fail Attempt to Emulate Ron Paul’s “Money-Bomb”

Ron Paul’s campaign raised $4.2 million from 37,000 supporters on Nov. 5th and other candidates have taken notice. A Barack Obama supporter created an event called Barack’s Friday that was supposed to raise the campaign $5 million on Nov. 16th. The event was a LITERAL BOMB; the event raised a mere $4,650 from 72 individuals.

Here is the proof from Barack’s website

Fred Thompson and Mitt Romney have also failed to emulate “money bombs” of any substantial significance.

Contrast that, to having hundreds of people travel from all around the country, quitting their jobs, and going into personal debt, to campaign in New Hampshire door to door in 3 degree windchild for Ron Paul. Read the article from salon.com about the lengths Ron Paul supporters are going through to save the country.

All Obama’s money is coming from corporate PAC money because people aren’t enthusastic about him. All Ron Paul’s money and volunteers are coming from people who know we are living in serious times and don’t want, but KNOW we HAVE TO change the country/world, AND SOON before it’s too late.

The dollar is collapsing; economists admit we’re probably going into another Depression soon. Ron Paul’s solutions for the economy/foreign policy are what we need to turn around. Not Barack Obama, who offers no solutions to this issue and says attacking Iran is OK and fear-mongering just like everyone else “we need to stop the terrorsits”!

Go to google news and type in “dollar” and research it yourself. Then go research what Ron Paul has been saying and doing in congress for 3 decades about it.

Ron Paul Wins Virginia Straw Poll

Ron Paul Wins Virginia Straw Poll

Tyler Whitley
Richmond Times Dispatch
December 2, 2007

ARLINGTON — Texas Rep. Ron Paul easily won a presidential poll at a Republican Party of Virginia conference here yesterday.

Paul polled 182 out of about 500 votes cast. Former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson finished second with 112 votes, and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee finished third with 51 votes.

The straw poll was held at the 24th annual Republican Advance, generally attended by activists and grass-roots workers, at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City Hotel in the Washington suburbs.

Republican officials dismissed the poll’s outcome, noting that Paul has been concentrating on winning straw polls all over the country.

Paul bused in young supporters. They waved signs and shouted loudly when his name was mentioned.

“He brought people in here. What is more critical to look at is who finished second and third. That is a more true indicator of the feelings of the Republican Party of Virginia,” said Tucker Watkins of Randolph in Charlotte County, a former 5th District GOP chairman.

Virginia Republicans and Democrats will each hold presidential primaries on Feb. 12. Because several other states have earlier votes, many observers think the nominees of the two parties will be decided by the time Virginians choose.

The major candidates, occupied in Iowa or New Hampshire where the earliest nominating contests will be held, sent surrogates yesterday.

The meeting brought good news for former Gov. Jim Gilmore, who is seeking the party’s nomination to run for the U.S. Senate. A prospective opponent, Del. Christopher B. Saxman of Staunton, said he would not seek the nomination. He said he would not be able to raise money while the General Assembly is in session this winter and so would not be able to mount a credible candidacy.

Del. Robert G. Marshall of Prince William has hinted that he might run, but he did not show up and had a friend read a statement prepared by him which indicated he likely would not run.

Gilmore in a brief speech to the Republicans, urged against defeatism and said he could beat former Gov. Mark R. Warner, a Democratic candidate for the seat now held by Republican Sen. John W. Warner, who is retiring.

“We’ve won two statewide contests [attorney general and governor], we’ve carried Northern Virginia twice,” Gilmore said.

 

Media Getting Wind of Ron Paul Blimp

Colette Von Hessen
Nolan Chart
December 1, 2007

It was bound to happen. The mainstream media are starting to get wind of the Ron Paul Blimp. Yes, you read that correctly — a blimp. In case you have been hiding under an Internet boulder, Ron Paul’s wildly creative and resourceful supporters have been up to their old tricks again, much to the dismay of leftists around the country. I’m sure the neocons at Redstate will have their fun with this one, too — they surely miss the traffic now that they’ve banned Ron Paul supporters from posting anything about the candidate on their blogs. Ron Paul? Das ist verboten! But back to the dirigible: a blimp is born, and his name is Who is Ron Paul?


The Los Angeles Times published a piece today called “Foot Soldiers for the Ron Paul Revolution.” Yes, you read that correctly: the L.A. Times actually referred to the revolution as just that, a revolution. In the article they mention the Ron Paul Blimp as part of a laundry list of decentralized campaign achievements at the grassroots level: “One Colorado backer quickly raised more than $350,000 online this week, with a plan to launch a Ron Paul blimp.”

Who in the old media will be next to discover the airborne Paulmobile? We’ll be waiting…

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.
