There are now fears that the Iowa caucus will get hacked? Ok, so the narrative goes like this.
"OMG! Ron Paul won the Iowa caucus, tell everyone that they were tampered with by these hackers!"
Did I win? fucking sheeple.. give me my prize bitches!
You are obviously a party apparatchik. That, mentally retarded, or completely brainwashed, but if you were that retarded or that brainwashed, you wouldn't understand, or spend time reading this blog.
No, he/she/it (most probably "it") doesn't actually believe what "it" is saying.
I hope that Ron Paul wins the Republican nomination, but I am not very hopeful that he will be allowed to win unless the people start demanding that the Diebold machines are independently tested for security or that manual counting returns.
We have a country that has lost the rule of law, a country that allows financial institutions to commit mass fraud for profit and does absolutely nothing to prosecute any crimes committed by the financial sector, even when these crimes have devastated the economy. We signed the Patriot Act into law, even though it is identical to the Nazi Constitution. We have a State controlled media that blacks out candidates like Ron Paul and does not report on the passages of bills like the NDAA. With a situation as dire a this, could we really trust that the Diebold vote counting machines, a business financed by these very people, would not be hacked to miscount votes cast for a person, like Ron Paul, who has vowed to uphold our Constitution?
If we think this, we are really blind.
The only reason the media is covering Ron Paul is to help Obama. Ron Paul is the weakest candidate. if I were Obama's campaign manager I would want to run against Ron Paul since he would be the easiest to beat.
Remember folks. we don't have a fair press in this country. All except Fox are in bed wiith the democrats.
Well ... if I ..as a foreigner may allow to put forward my suggestion :
Ron Paul would be an excellent president IF he puts his actions where is mouth has been
First of all :
1. an UNCONDITIONAL PROMISE upon entering office to IMMIDIATELY ABOLISH all laws recently indtroduced in the USA INFRINGING on PERSONAL LIBERTY and RIGHTS enshrined in the US Constitution
2. Immidiately DISSOLVE the HOMELAND SECURITY DEPARTMENT and all similar and affiliated organisations of CONTROL , SURVEILLANCE and REPRESSION of the General Population
3. to withdraw US MILITARY from most of the Bases established worldwide
4. to INDICT those POLITICIANS incuding former Presidents of the US who blatantly have violated the US CONSTITITION as well as INTERNATIONAL CONVENTIONS now for decades
5. to INDICT those FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS including Federal Reserve Officials who have lied to and stolen from the general population in the Interest of BIG FINANCE
6. to return to SOUND MONEY .. as hard and painful as that road may be enabling the US to STOP cheating the remainder of the World ... and for the US to be able to live of the fruits of its OWN labour ..and not that of Other nations
I am afraid .. that the Incumbent will be ASSASINATED ...or Elections will be postponed by MARTIAL LAW if there is the slightest possibility that he could win on such a programe ... just like Kennedy and his brother most certainly were murdered by big US INTERESTS ...
If all that you suggest happened in the first month of RP's presidency, there would be a such a sudden upsurge in heart attacks and strokes in the US that would overhelm our healthcare system. there would also be a run Kleenex and other tissue from the rest of us weeping with joy.
RP makes me cry. Sometimes I even think he might be one of Isaiah's 'witnesses'. But that's just me.
Weren't they saving Patraeus for the end-run?
We can only hope the main stream pee stream media serves as more than an effluence outlet.
the biggest problem with the popularity of ron paul is tptb will do everything to shut down the internet before someone(or many people) with the same ideas and way more articulate tries to do the same thing.
the msm has chosen every president since kennedy and they perfected the art with shrub and obama. having an old, plain spoken white dude do an end around their zionist, neocon, fascist game has them chasing free range chickens. they will use a gun to end the chase.
I found this interestng. Chinese economics professor agreeing with Dr. Paul on bubbles from hot money:
“A two-year lending binge and the government’s plan to transform Hainan, in the South China Sea, into an international tourism destination helped fuel a 48 percent surge in Sanya’s home prices last year, making it the nation’s best-performing property market. As China in 2011 switched gears with policies such as increased deposit requirements designed to curb speculation, Sanya’s home prices have dropped 28 percent since last December.
“It was really no different to what was driving prices in other cities in China, which was an explosion of liquidity that caused asset inflation across the country,” said Patrick Chovanec, an associate professor at Tsinghua University’s School of Economics and Management in Beijing.
China spent 4 trillion yuan ($628 billion) to shield its economy as credit markets froze when Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. collapsed in September 2008. It also encouraged banks to lend out a record $2.7 trillion in 2009 and 2010, fueling a surge in home prices and construction that it’s now battling to restrain after warning of an asset bubble."
Just to contrast Ron Paul's lack of enthusiasm for Israel vs. Romney.
Romney selected Michael Chertoff (MC) to head his foreign policy team.
MC is a dual-citizen (Israel) and member of the most brutal, caustic, racist, blood-thirsty branch of Orthodox Judaism, Chabad Lubavitch.
MC was US attorney while US Congressman (R-OH) James Trafficant spoke out publicly against US-Israel policy. JT agrees with George Washington’s Farewell Address regarding our relationship with Israel, which harms the USA because it joins us to the hip with the most hated nation extant.
MC suborned perjury and trumped up corruption charges against JT, resulting in JT spending seven years in prison.
As reward for his great work, the Rabbis ordered their White House sycophant Bush to make MC Chief of Homeland Security.
Immediately after MC left his govt post, he went to work for the company who makes X-ray body scanners, declared carcinogenic and banned by the European transit authority. MC made many millions of dollars selling the body scanners to his friends in high places at the US TSA.
If you love the current Mid East wars, you’ll love the nuclear holocaust in Iran shortly after Chertoff whispers in President Romney’s ear.
Beautiful RT reporters are intelligent analysts, and not just beautiful.
RT Women Discuss David Horowitz Attacks on Ron Paul as Anti-Semite
Hit job on Bloomberg. Pathetic.
Ramesh you have a little RNC-emen running down your chin.
Thx, the article is a master jingo smear.
Timing is perfect - a Ramesh guy shot himself in the toe ...
Go RP !
Ron Paul is one nice old gentleman of principles.
Principles that are anathema to the existing powers.
He will never set foot in the White House as President. 100% certain he will be assassinated before he gets there. And America is a nation of cowards, for pretending that one nice old man can 'save you' from the vast evil that has entrenched itself in the power structures of your nation. It's way past that stage. The only thing that will save you now, is the Carlin Solution. Massive bloodshed. There is no other way to restore the honor of your nation, than to take out the evil focks that are deliberately running it into the ground at present.
For an idea of the scale of solution that is now unavoidable, it's going to require the military to be ordered into actions drastic enough to cause a mutiny, between those obedient to the bankers and The Tribe, and those patriots who will refuse to fire on their own brothers and sisters in the streets. You'd better pray the patriots are still in a majority.
Only after that little problem is sorted out, and the military is once again wholly on the side of the people, will there be any hope of really solving this.
10,000 heads on pikes - that would be a fair start. More likely something like that in each major city. And you all know it in your hearts.
The main objective of the MSM these days, is to postpone that day of violent revolution. The primary means they have of postponing it, is by demoralizing and fragmenting those Americans who understand what is happening, and what must be done.
And this is why, if the MSM are suddenly 'noticing' Ron Paul, he'd better quadruple his bodyguard. Because it means someone has decided to make a public example of him. And when that goes down, the more people who knew of him and what he stands for, and have pinned their hopes on him, the better. (In the view of the Elites.) That will be more people in shock, lost, despairing and fearful of standing against the existing powers.
This is why he's being 'noticed'. Not because he's succeeding at polls. Only because his success despite the MSM ban has stepped the game up to the next level.
Wait and see. What's the bet an 'Iranian terror terror bomb bomb BOMB!' just happens to kill Ron Paul. Or a 'mentally disturbed gunman' (with curious gaps in his recent history) shoots Ron Paul. Or he has a sudden coronary just after eating lunch. On an '11th' date, just so everyone who understands these bastards *knows* who did it.
You're all pussies. Including the OWS crowd.
I agree with some of what you said, but the namecalling is NOT helpful! Why don't you encourage people to not put all their eggs in one basket instead of casting rude aspersions?
As one who will vote for RP, I do NOT assume that he could "save us" from all of our problems. I have studied the NWO topic for some time now and have a decent grasp on the agenda that defines TPTB. Their tentacles are vast, deep, and yes, GLOBAL. They play to win. But that does not necessitate defeatist thumbsucking or even immediate muskets on the street just yet.
Of course RP is in mortal danger....any idiot could figure that out....and I guarantee HE knows that better than anyone.
For now, I will take the approach of Ghandi...there will be plenty of time for more dire efforts later.
False flag attacks, mysterious "heart attacks", "crazed" lone gunmen....they have a myriad of tricks up their sleeves. But if the threat of danger causes one to NOT use available options such as voting, then they have already won.
Your words insult the basic human tendency to seek hope and a better world. Why denigrate those virtues? We are "big boys/girls" here at ZH....some of the best and brightest posters anywhere on the web...so no need to characterize us as ignorant fools. If RP doesn't win, then we will shake it off and go for Plan B. That's how we roll...
a nation of cowards, for pretending that one nice old man can 'save you' from the vast evil that has entrenched itself
He is a witness to truth. If they kill him the witness will rise.

There has been outright panic by the mainstream media. A friend of mine, who works at Fox news, tells of the news section being 'confused' at their drop in ratings. They apparently seemed to think, that they, not us decided elections.
Like you say, even non Ron Paul supporters became Ron Paul’s supporters, simply because the MSM bias clearly was affecting the election outcome and democracy in general. Every MSM outlet thought 'someone else’ would cover him, and so no one did. With the blackout becoming beyond embarrassing and openly looking like conspiracy the MSM is seeing both plummeting ratings and advertising money was going to less mainstream channels. Apparently Russia Today is very happy with the whole fiasco - its ratings have jumped hugely.
I guess they just ran of bullshit.
Thanks for the "insider" peek into the whore that is the MSM. Please keep us updated on your friend's observations as things progress!
I'd love to see just one MSM news anchor go "Howard Beale" on the world.
Fox Al Waleed, Disney/ABC Al Waleed, CNN/TW-Al Waleed,NBC/Comcast/GE Al Waleed (billions in contractos with House of Saud & GE), the list goes on. F Fox. F CNN and MSNC. TV is for morons cowards. Wake up people. You watch it = you support your serfdom. ALL TV, All Hollywood, All the media are total sh*t. They are there to lie and manipulate. Limbaugh, Hannity, Savage - all hate Ron Paul. Wonder why Glenn Beck got off TV and started his own web network? F TV. F the ball games.
There are about two newspaper exceptions. One in the Uk and one in the US and it is not Murdoch's WSJ.
Dig around and you will see he has connections or investments in all the networks. The Saudis are not the only evil infecting Tv and the media. They are close allies with others involved in the media. Let's just say Iran is their common enemy.
Just one question though: How could ANY ZeroHedger have an employee of FOX News (sic) as a friend?
The one employee at Fox news that I really respect is Judge Napolitano. He is an ardent Constitutionalist. I don't know how he can stand to work there!
That said, I stopped watching Fox a long time ago. The dumbed down, jingoistic spewing is just too much for an educated mind to endure!
One question to you. Do you watch TV? If so then you are with the elites and you are f***king serf and moron.
To be an impartial observer is NOT akin to being a brainwashed devotee.
Ever heard of keeping tabs on your enemies?
I do turn on Fox in my kitchen when I am doing dishes or cooking for this simple reason: I have many friends and family that watch and trust it, and I want to know what the lies d'jour are so I can refute them! But I will say that watching is very painful and intellectually insulting!
Yes I do, at least on occasion.
But then again, I am an intellectual masochist.
Looks like ZH now has established the Ron Paul Volatility Index (RPVIX), based on the whip-sawing of positive and negative responses to various Ron Paul comments posted here. And much like its counter-part, the Market Volatility Index, increased volatility in the RPVIX is a harbinger of change to come. No, not the sticky, sweet pabulum BS the has been shoveled down the collective gaping pie-holes of America’s slumbering middle-class by the MSM, et.al.; and not the gooey yellow baby-shit that is normally extruded by the “bought and paid for” politico space-monkeys, e.g., “Change We Can Believe In” (and other straight out lies such as "Transparency in Government").
If the Ron Paul Volatility Index says anything, it says that real change is coming down the road, and that change probably won’t be comfortable for many. Change never is. But if its change that levels out the playing fields, and fosters a new beginning of growth and prosperity for this country; if it shakes the average Joe and Jane Six-pack out of their Tivo and iPod induced stupors; then brother – bring it on!
RPVIX = delta Ron Paul + marks / delta Ron Paul - marks ?
The sheeple are waking!!!
Bring it awwwwwwwwwwwn!!!
This nonense article says it's because he's anti-Fed and anti-war. There are plenty of anti-war politicians who get a lot more press than him, and Rick Perry is anti-Fed. Being both isn't enough to explain the media ignoring him.
The real reason the media ignore him is because he even ADDRESSES Zionism (inclduing him dedicating a chapter to the topic in his last book), and as he gains popularity you start seeing more desparate, obvious methods to isolate him like banning him from platforms like this:http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/dec/05/republican-jewish-coalition-...
Look...I live in Texas and know Rick Perry's hijinx all too well. I can authoratatively tell you that Perry has adopted the "anti-FED" stance just recently after noticing how much traction it is getting politically. And then, at the same time he was denouncing the FED, video evidence shows him receiving hearty support from the big banks! He is a liar extraordinaire, and he would be the banksters little bitch if he were to be elected, which he won't.
Next thing some god-forsaken crackpot will post the Rabbis and Judaics are NOT God's Chosenites!
Previously posted by me:
DISCLAIMER: I Love Ron Paul, but see him as unelectable for a variety of reasons, none of which you Libertarians seem to want to face.
Ron Paul CAN NOT and WILL NOT get the nomination. Not because of lack of general popularity, but because the lib media will destroy him, just as I am about to do below:
He has delivered 4000+ babies:
Do you really think he will make it through the election gauntlet with this baggage? He has manhandled 4000 snappers with kids hanging out. For sure, a bunch of them will come forward to say that RP abused them in some way, touched them inappropriately, fucked up their kid or did something else wrong. This is certain. Even if all of it is BS, it will bog him down.
Not enough? Already hit the neg vote arrow?
How about this:
Here is an excerpt from an article on RP electability from Hot Air:
Paul, writing in his independent political newsletter in 1992, reported about unspecified surveys of blacks.
”Opinion polls consistently show that only about 5 percent of blacks have sensible political opinions, i.e. support the free market, individual liberty and the end of welfare and affirmative action,”
Paul continued that politically sensible blacks are outnumbered
“as decent people.”
Citing reports that 85 percent of all black men in the District of Columbia are arrested, Paul wrote:
“Given the inefficiencies of what D.C. laughingly calls the `criminal justice system,’ I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal,” Paul said.
Paul also wrote that although
“we are constantly told that it is evil to be afraid of black men, it is hardly irrational. Black men commit murders, rapes, robberies, muggings and burglaries all out of proportion to their numbers.”
Need more or are you still in political fantasy land salivating over the Libertarian Dream Team?
How about Paul’s suggestion that the age of adulthood for criminal prosecution be lowered — for blacks?
“We don’t think a child of 13 should be held responsible as a man of 23. That’s true for most people, but black males age 13 who have been raised on the streets and who have joined criminal gangs are as big, strong, tough, scary and culpable as any adult and should be treated as such.”
Do you really think that with quotes like this on record, and not having the backing of the MSM to cover for you, as they have done for POTUS, that he stands a chance?
The Congressional Black Caucus will eat his lunch.
The Hot Air article goes on with much more, but suffice it to say that if RP wins the nomination, this election is a walkaway. The libtards will destroy him.
Save your money. Go buy a new Wii instead. The impact on your life will be far greater.
Again, I love the guy, but as we say here in Texas:
This dog don't hunt.
I'm guessing you never read, "The Fountainhead". The above quotes remind me of how Dominique Franconcommented about Howard Roarke's architecture. I think that if Ron Paul did say these things, he did soin the spirit of Dominique with the goal of taking a poke at the government's way of spinning thingsrather than making a racist comment. Unfortunately, nobody but Paul got the joke. But that's theproblem with Paul... he is an incredibly smart man with incredibly poor communication skills. Hedoesn't understand that the world works in terms of sound bites, and that if he tries to communicateas a man instead of as a puppet, he is going to have his words twisted and ridiculed.
Let them come after RP for racism and they will accidentally strip white mans guilt off of millions of us and demolish the stigma of racism.
"Racist, culturalist and religionist."
aka "I am white, I hate ghetto culture and I am Christian so fucking deal with it"
"Racism: If it's good enough for blacks, Japs and Zionists, it's good enough for the rest of us"
PS: I expect to receive at least several red arrows for adding the word "Zionists" above to my list of racist groups. Well, to all the Mossad-employed trolls and paid operatives who give me such, fuck you and your whole wargod-chosen-people mythological racist fantasies already.
Kamikazi,Thou knowest not what love is, methinks, thou protesteteth too much.

Testiculese (213 B.C.)
does this mean I shouldn't vote for him or are you just saying "don't get your hopes up"? I read the article and all of those allegatons can be explained more easily than the fact that our current prez is willing to accept the power to kill American citizens without a trial or the fact that he has continued wars that he promised to end or that his justice department has left the guilty banksters go free. At least the explanations make more sense to me
if ron paul won all the states that mccain won in 2008 and picked up indiana & iowa, he would still need north calrolina OR virginia AND pennsylvania, ohio and florida to win.
even if paul wins florida, virginia and north carolina, he could not beat obama without either pennsylvnia or ohio.
I dont see independents swinging another landslide to the same degree that they did in 2008. I think turnout will be about even, with obama wininning with 299 electoral votes.
What you don't realize is that if he runs as the Republician nominee, he will take California.
riiiight and detroit will win the superbowl. what you don't realize is that the gop can try the reagan strategy, but this isn't the california of 1980 and paul is no actor.
Spreading dirt on a candidate only works when it is true, or at least honestly reflective of the character of that individual.
However, as we all know (or should), the above quotes (which were NOT writtten nor approved by Ron Paul) are NOT representative, in even the slightest degree, of his views or of his character, as the simple fact that there are NO other even vaguely similar statements or writings made by the man himself which express such sentiments or beliefs --- on the contrary, there is a VAST amount of his quotes, writings and speeches which directly contradict such misattributed racist viewpoints.
So which is one logically going to believe truly represents Ron Paul's beliefs: the 0.01% of everything that could even be remotely attributed to Ron Paul, and which he manifestly did NOT write nor endorse, or the 99.99% of everything written or spoken by the man which expressly contradict that 0.01%?
They've aired this crap the last time around. The problem when you give enough time to expose such lies, the propagandists utterings the second time 'round often backfire.
Yes. Racist/Zionist/Rabbinical Talmudist Micheal Medved was all over this last election cycle.
We elected a coke head, deserter, womanizing drunk...and a southern hill billy with a penchant for trailer trash and fat chics...
yes, RP is 'electable', but it will have to be with the people's money...can we raise that much money???
You forgot the islamic with sealed records.
