We’ll Get The President We Deserve

By Mary Starrett from News with Views

Try this. Ask fellow “conservatives” who our next president should be. After you hear the candidate’s name ask: “Why?”

Nine times out of ten, you’ll hear some mutterings like: “He’s really conservative” or “We need a Christian in the White House” or “He’s the best qualified.” Ask for some specifics and you’re likely to see eyes shift downward as the subject is changed.

The truth of the matter is, most people are woefully uninformed and are buying the lying of ‘front-runner’ candidates and their media sock puppets.

Last weekend at a department store, I heard two sales women mention Ron Paul. I listened to the following comments as I poked through the sweater racks.

Woman #1: “He’s so creepy, I just kept taking that poll online ‘til it finally showed I was for someone else.”

Woman #2:” I know, he’s really a weirdo. It came up for Ron Paul for me, too, but I would never vote for him.”

For one moment, I questioned the wisdom of women’s suffrage.

Along with the media embargo on Congressman Ron Paul’s silver medal showing in the silver state as well as his unprecedented fund-raising, many Americans refuse to acknowledge the one, true constitutionalist in the GOP presidential race. Many folks twist themselves into pretzels trying to defend candidates who do not represent them at all on the major issues and whose track records should be cause for serious concern.

[…]

Some voters will bemoan the problem of illegal immigration in one breath and in the next breath tell you they want former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee to be president.

Obviously, these people have not done any homework on their candidate of choice or they would know Huckabee created a veritable sanctuary state in Arkansas. While governor, he courted a cheap, illegal workforce for corporate cronies at Tyson Foods and WalMart, thus lowering the pay scale for legal residents of that state who then found jobs harder than ever to come by.

At the same time, Huckabee provided taxpayer-funded office space to the Mexican government, pushed healthcare jackpots for illegals and likened the current population of illegal aliens to slaves brought here from Africa, all the while suggesting that those who had a problem with the onslaught might be “racist.”

Huckabee’s presidential “immigration reform” plan is to have those here illegally go back to their home countries for one day and then come back lickety- split all legal-like. The so-called ‘touch-back” program is nothing less than amnesty. This, Huckabee touts as “tough” immigration policy.

Media Smeared Paul For Racism, Ignored McCain’s “Gook”/Hate Comments

From: Prison Planet

Media Smeared Paul For Racism, Ignored McCain’s “Gook” Comments
Corporate establishment machine protects its cherished war candidate

A shining example of how the media engaged in a witch hunt as part a coordinated campaign to sink the presidential campaign of Congressman Ron Paul is when they attacked him for vaguely racist comments made by other people in the 80’s, while completely ignoring the fact that Republican frontrunner John McCain openly said he hated “gooks” more recently.

James Kirchick’s New Republic hit piece, which was echoed by every sector of the establishment media for weeks on end, was a vitriolic, biased, and agenda-driven smear attack that lumped in half-truths, outright lies and guilt by association in an attempt to demonize Ron Paul as a racist.

Bear in mind that the comments Kirchick based his article on were largely drawn from newsletters put out in the 1980’s of which Ron Paul had no editorial control over. Despite the fact that the comments were made by other people, Ron Paul apologized anyway and yet the feeding frenzy that ensued blatantly exposed the fact that the establishment had been chomping at the bit to seize on anything negative to attack the Congressman with.

Meanwhile, John “Keating Five”, ahem I mean John “anti-corruption” McCain, disgracefully said he hated “gooks” in public for assembled reporters to hear during his previous presidential campaign in 2000.
“I hated the gooks. I will hate them as long as I live,” McCain said on his campaign bus.

PULLING STRINGS FOR SENATOR McCAIN

The US political circus is an amazing, if not agonizing, show to watch. First, we saw Rudy Giuliani, the establishment’s pre-election favorite (only because the media said so) go from front runner status to a disastrous showing in the primaries–garnering less votes than Rep. Ron Paul, who was systematically denied any meaningful media coverage at all. It appears the public is either fickle or the media polls were just plain lying–perhaps both. Then we saw John McCain with almost no support suddenly rise to front runner status after a barrage of big name newspaper and personality endorsements so unanimous that there had to have existed some guiding hand. The establishment boost for McCain is still ongoing in a big way and is intended to gain McCain a majority of delegates before the convention convenes–which would eliminate a brokered convention where deals and concession have to be made in order to gain that majority. In an up or down vote between McCain or Romney, without Huckabee to draw away votes from Romney, McCain would lose. That’s what the king makers are trying to avoid by manipulating the public during the primaries. It’s time to let America know more about the real McCain. Believe me, he is no hero.

Pastor Baldwin: Pastors are the Main Problem in America

From Chuck Baldwin’s, 1/29/08 News with Views article:
Why Are Ron Paul’s Supporters So Angry?

[…]

In addition, I can even understand whatever anger and exasperation Ron Paul’s supporters feel regarding my fellow evangelical believers. Today’s Christians–and especially our pastors–have become little more than toadies for the establishment elite. They apparently have never read our U.S. Constitution, Declaration of Independence, or Bill of Rights. They are seemingly oblivious to our great American history and heritage. They seem to lack the most elementary understanding of even the most basic American principles.

For example, it makes absolutely no sense that Christian pastors would embrace the sudden pro-life candidacy of Mitt Romney and reject the proven, twenty-year pro-life record of Ron Paul. It makes no sense that evangelical Christians would embrace the pro-illegal amnesty, pro-McCain/Feingold, pro-No-Child-Left-Behind, pro-gun control John McCain and reject the proven, twenty-year no-amnesty, pro-freedom, anti-No-Child-Left-Behind, pro-Second Amendment record of Ron Paul. It makes absolutely no sense that Christians would fall for Mr. Big Government himself, Mike Huckabee, and reject the champion of limited government, Ron Paul.

Beyond that, how is it that pastors and evangelicals cannot see through the GOP’s complicity in helping to establish a Luciferian New World Order? How can they be so blind and dumb regarding the global machinations of the Council on Foreign Relations? How can they not understand and reject the philosophy emanating from the Trilateral Commission and Bilderburgers?

Ask the average pastor and Christian about the CFR, the Trilateralists, or the Bilderburgers and they just stare into space. They are absolutely clueless. Ask them about the burgeoning NAFTA superhighway, North American Union, or Amero and they look stupefied. Again, they are absolutely clueless. And, yes, I am angry about it. I am saddened and angered at the lack of knowledge, perception, and discernment demonstrated by my Christian brethren.

I believe with all my heart that if the pastors and Christian people of America would come off their high horse and start supporting the principles of liberty, the U.S. Constitution, and limited government, not only would there be a rebirth of freedom in America, there would be a spiritual revival as well.

As it is, freedom-loving people cannot see past the ignorance, elitism, and partisan phoniness of modern Christians in order that they might see Christ. The Scripture plainly says, “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” (II Corinthians 3:17)

When America’s Colonial preachers and Christian people fought for liberty and independence, God gave us two Great Awakenings. I believe another Great Revival would come to America, if our Christians and pastors would stand on their hind legs and once again fight for liberty and independence. And, yes, I am also angry that they will not do that either.

Ron Paul is the Only Candidate Who Can Avert a Depression

In the face of this week’s market meltdown—which has been called the worst financial crisis since WWII—the current crop of U.S. presidential candidates are preaching a hodgepodge of trite economic boosterism and disastrous governmental intervention. Unsurprisingly, the elephant in the room is Ron Paul, the political leper of anointed establishment politics, who just happens to have a massive, growing, devoted following capable of breaking fundraising records in support of him, and who has real plans to avert the global depression which is almost certainly on the way.

Romney has praised the Federal Reserve’s panic cut in the federal funds rate by 75 basis points. The cut, however, has earned round condemnation from most delegates to the World Economic Forum, who fear the move is prolonging the inevitable correction of an over-inflated marketplace.

Obama believes the severe economic woes—the symptom of hundreds of trillions of dollars of under-regulated high-risk financial instruments known as derivatives, a fiat currency, and the staggering debt and deficit the federal government is creating in foreign adventurism—can be solved by “saying to banks that they have to invest in their communities.”

McCain has been shamelessly trumpeting the old political hogwash that despite the crashing market, spiraling currency and signs of crisis in some of the largest institutional lenders in the country, “the fundamental underpinnings of our economy are strong.”

All agree that Bush’s harebrained scheme to increase inflation by printing money and handing it out in rebate cheques—a scheme with questionable short-term benefits and no long-term benefits—is a great idea.

All, that is, except for Paul. Paul has spoken and written at length about the inflation tax, ….

John McCain in “Missing, Presumed Dead”

The group Vietnam Veterans Against McCain attacks Senator John McCain’s heroism as a POW in the Vietnam conflict; this is making some waves in the news due to McCain’s presidential candidacy. The documentary “Missing, Presumed Dead the Search for America’s POWs” however focuses more on Senator John McCain successfully blocking the release of classified POW/MIA documents. Here is an excerpt from that documentary.

 

Ron Paul Ponders Plunge Protection Team

January 26, 2008 — Republican White House hopeful Ron Paul has made shining some light on the secretive President’s Working Group on Financial Markets – better known as the “Plunge Protection Team” – his pet cause.

The Texas congressman brought up the issue at Thursday night’s Republican debate in Florida. Paul asked candidate John McCain whether he would keep the Working Group and if the Arizona senator would open it up in order for the public to see how it works. …

On Wednesday, Paul indicated that the Working Group may have had something to do with that day’s nearly 300-point stock market rally.

Ron Paul Asks McCain About the Working Group (Plunge Protection Team)

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]

ELECTION CENTRAL: ROMNEY–THE ONE TO STOP

With a solid win in the Michigan primary, supposedly a “make it or break it” contest for Romney, the establishment is now going to have it’s hands full trying to stop the surge for Romney. The media claimed Romney’s grasp of the economy was what propelled him to victory in Michigan. Not so. It was just bad, old-fashioned pandering to a depressed economic area, promising federal help-though avoiding the word “bailout.” Romney is not taking the high road of a Ron Paul, who would never stoop to promising benefits. This, sadly, makes Ron Paul less electable and easier for the establishment to dismiss. But Romney is playing the establishment game with the best, and that is the establishment’s problem. As Romney tries to appeal to a wide audience, the election insiders are having to promote 3 different candidates, in different ways and at different times, in order to stop various aspects of the Romney appeal.

Skousen: Election Manipulation in Full Swing

ELECTION MANIPULATION IN FULL SWING

We live in a fractured society pitting a few million ideologically savvy people against a growing majority of ill-informed voters whose ideas are manipulated by the media. Almost all voters are dissatisfied with the status quo, but often for the wrong reasons. The majority keeps being lured away from limited government by the promise of greater federal health and education benefits as if that were the solution to galloping inflation. In fact, it is the problem-not the solution.

Predictably, they always vote for change, but change never comes. This is because we are rarely presented with a candidate who understands the totality of change necessary. When a candidate like Ron Paul emerges, who really understands the problems and proposes the inevitable tough solutions, he is labeled as a kook, or extremist,…but mostly ignored. About 2-5% of the nation is able to see through it all, but as we found out in the New Hampshire primary, it’s not enough to overtake the momentum of ignorance within the majority. The system is rigged for secrecy, and takes advantage of the average American’s dependence upon the half-truths and distortions we are fed by the establishment media, public education and conventional political theory. Thus, the typical voter holds an almost infinite variety of ignorant and irrational ideas about both cause and effect of our national crises and thus becomes easy prey to false solutions and media manipulation. We saw all these things play out in New Hampshire this week, including some last minute media manipulation and vote fraud–signs that the Powers That Be (PTB) are having to scramble to control this race.

N.H. Debate: Candidates Mock Ron Paul – Persecuted for Righteousness!

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.

Skousen: Beck’s Ron Paul Interview; What’s Behind the McCain Surge?

World Affairs Brief, December 21, 2007. Commentary and Insights on a Troubled World.

WHAT’S BEHIND THE MCCAIN SURGE?

When several major American newspapers act in unison to endorse the candidacy of someone like Sen. John McCain, who is out of money, pushing a warmongering agenda, and declining in the polls, it is clear there is manipulation afoot. Even Henry Kissinger chimed in with an endorsement of McCain, which is very telling. This week a lot of private phone calls were made as insiders worked their influence behind the scenes to manage media endorsements and reverse negative public perceptions about McCain. Up until last week, The Des Moines Register editorial board was negative on McCain and Clinton. Something turned them around this week to make them endorse McCain and Clinton and it wasn’t the candidates themselves. Last week the media was pushing Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and his Christian credentials (which they despise) in an effort to dampen the robust lead of Mitt Romney in both Iowa and New Hampshire. Yet, in contrast, there was hardly a word about the real surge in popular support for Congressman Ron Paul, except for the begrudging acknowledgment of his $6 million fundraising day on Dec. 16. This week I’ll analyze why the Powers That Be in Washington are worried this election might get away from them. Continue reading “Skousen: Beck’s Ron Paul Interview; What’s Behind the McCain Surge?”
