Ron Paul Behind Scenes the at the CNN Debate 1-30-08
From: Max Kennedy at Nolan Chart
The CNN Debate was held tonight, January 30th, for the Republican party. Again, they excluded Ron Paul from speaking. …
I took particular offense at where Ron Paul tried to answer a question, and the CNN host [Anderson Cooper] PROMISED to let him answer in two minutes, and he would get back to him. He never did. …
He lied on the air, intentionally, in front of millions. That lying is considered not wrong is outrageous and unbelievable. A Democracy can not exist where debates no longer exist.
Rep. Ron Paul of Texas:
_ On the federal government’s role in stimulating the economy: “Yes, we have a role to play, but it’s a negative role. We want the people to be free. We don’t want to manage the people and tell them how to live. … But the most important thing as a commander in chief is not moving troops around, as much as it is having a wise foreign policy that doesn’t get us involved in so many things that we get trapped in and we linger year after year. We’ve been doing this for so long. And I like President Bush’s argument that we have a humble foreign policy when he ran in 2000, and that we not be the policemen of the world.”
Florida, Jan. 24 Republican debate transcript—MSNBC
[Brian] Williams: … Congressman Paul, a question for one of your colleagues on stage.
[Ron] Paul: My question is for Senator McCain.
This is an economic question that I want to ask. It has to do with the President’s Working Group on Financial Markets.
I’d like to know what your opinion is of this and whether you would keep it in place, what their role would be if you — or you would get rid of this group? And if you kept the group, would you make sure we would see some sunlight and know what they’re doing and how they’re being involved in our markets?
McCain: Well, obviously, we like to see more sunshine. But…. [McCain evades the question]

RON PAUL DROPS BALL ON 9/11
A lot of Ron Paul supporters were disappointed by Ron’s failure to defend them against the poisonous trap/questions posed to him about 9/11 conspiracy theories (in both the Glen Beck interview and the latest Michigan debate). Ron, obviously trying to evade being labeled a “conspiracy theorist” –the whole purpose behind these questions–said he did not believe the government was behind the attacks. Many who have joined the movement because no establishment candidate will listen to their challenges felt betrayed by Ron’s lack of knowledge on the subject and his blanket rejection. I talked to Ron’s campaign manager Lew Moore and he is aware of the disappointment and feels bad about it. He assured me that Ron has mentioned on numerous other occasions that if elected, he would open a new investigation and make sure that the 9/11 Truth Movement is represented.
Clearly, the Ron Paul campaign has made a tactical decision to avoid openly siding with the conspiracy issue, but it should be enough for his supporters to know that he would support an open investigation. He could have said that, citing the numerous flaws in the 9/11 Commission Report, as he has before in lesser venues, but in the heat of being pressed about it on national TV, he failed to do so. In one CNN poll, a whopping 89% indicated they believe the US Government was covering something up in 9/11. That doesn’t mean they believe in a major conspiracy (which takes a lot of courage and knowledge to defend) but it does show to what degree people realize the government is covering for something.
Letter: ‘Fair and balanced,’ except for Paul
January 16, 2008 – 12:01 AM
I cannot believe the degree of blatant bias that Fox News showed at the recent GOP debate in South Carolina. Their “mediators” asked the “top tier” candidates about their views on important issues, while using each question to Ron Paul as an opportunity to discredit him.
They asked Mike Huckabee about his views on the economy and his associated plans, then turned and asked Paul about some of his supporters who believe 9/11 was an inside job. They even had the nerve to ask Paul, “When it comes to electability…do you have any?” This drew laughter from the other candidates and some audience members. Paul was able to turn the question around on them, drawing huge applause from the crowd.
So now “Faux” News has edited that question out of the re-aired debate. This treatment happening just days after they decided to exclude Paul from their debate in New Hampshire because he wasn’t a “viable” candidate. That seemed awfully strange to me, seeing as they invited Rudy Giuliani, whom Paul beat in the Iowa caucuses by 6 percent.
How is it that a news organization whose motto is “fair and balanced” can get away with treating Ron Paul like this? It makes me angry that more people are not up in arms at Fox’s attempt to influence the masses through the facade of honest reporting. Fox News is nothing more than a neo-con propaganda machine.
For, behold, the wicked bend their bows.
They set their arrows on the strings,
That they may shoot in darkness at
the upright in heart.

Faux News Exposed [Again]
When FauxNoise replayed the debate tonight they cut to commercial and EDITED OUT — yes, they DID NOT SHOW — Ron Paul’s above answer to the electability question! How can you even call yourself a decent human being and like this anti-free speech, anti-free thought network? They censor and spin anything that threatens them and it’s a sickening suppression of truth.

The credibility of Fox News is pretty much close to zero. It was bad enough that they refused to allow Ron Paul in their NH debate forum, but now they have been caught planting an actor in their supposedly random focus groups. Frank Luntz one of the chief propagandists for Fox News who organizes these focus groups has been caught planting people in focus groups in a clear attempt to distort reality. During tonight’s Fox News GOP debate, Luntz organized a focus group to provide feedback from so called random Republican voters. However, one of the people in the focus group was also used in a previous focus group Luntz organized for the September 5th, 2007 GOP presidential debate. Take a look at the two videos….
PAUL: Try to visualize how we would react if they did that to us, if a country, say China, came that great distance across the ocean, and they say, “We want you to live like us. We want you to have our economic system. We want bases on your land. We want to protect our oil.”
Even if we do that with good intentions — even if the Chinese did that with good intentions, we would all be together and we’d be furious.
PAUL: We, in foreign policy, ought to have a golden rule. We ought to treat others as we would want others to treat us. And we don’t treat others so fairly. We treat them like we’re the bully, that we’re the policeman of the world, and we’re going to tell them to behave.
Blessed are you when people reproach you, persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven. For that is how they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
– Jesus (Mt. 5:11,12)
During Saturday night’s ABC/Facebook debate American’s witnessed presidential candidates laugh at, patronize, and mock Congressman Ron Paul. Well, it is not Dr. Paul they are laughing at, but it is the majority of Americans who they mock, patronize and abuse.
A bully can’t hide their psychopathy. And these candidate’s exhibit their psychopathy when someone like Dr. Paul presents sound, principled and ethical discussion around current important issues. The candidates repeatedly interrupted Ron, shook their heads while he spoke, made faces, and utter comments like John McCain, who was caught on microphone saying: “we’ll miss you tomorrow,” referring to Fox’s decision to keep Ron out of Sunday’s debate.
“We, in foreign policy, ought to have a golden rule. We ought to treat others as we would want others to treat us. And we don’t treat others so fairly. We treat them like we’re the bully, that we’re the policeman of the world, and we’re going to tell them to behave.”
– Ron Paul in the ABC, N.H. Republican debate: Transcript
As we get deeper into the campaign, I do not have a problem with excluding candidates who are not generating any substantial public support. Gravel, I think, was an example of that in the Democratic debates. But I think the Paulbots have a pretty good case for outrage with Ron Paul’s exclusion from the upcoming Republican debate in New Hampshire.Paul’s supporters lay most of their claim to a place in the debate on his mammoth fundraising numbers. To me, the bigger issue is that Paul is consistently outpolling Fred Thompson, who is being allowed into the debate.
Ron Paul will be excluded from an upcoming forum of Republican candidates to be broadcast by Fox News on January 6, 2008. Please check here for actions to take to remedy this situation. It is now paramount that we organize a solution to show Fox the meaning of “blowback” for their apparent tampering of the election process.
