    I blame him for the headline “Damn You …” on a freelancing irresponsible url site owner. I also blame him for the 62 Likes and 79 Dislikes on this page.

    I would drop Jesse like a hot rock. That b&W portrait drawing of Ron Paul in the video is terrible. Hasn’t he heard of the Rule #38 that says delegates are not bound to the Unity Rule? He talks like a high school kid “talk to them hard” Get a professional announcer. This guy is too negative and he sure shouldn’t be answering questions for Ron Paul. We face a problem with “youth support” no way. He can stay on the team but not talk.

    If Obama did so horribly, yet the democratic party isn’t lifting a finger to even find a new candidate for their party and trying to get him a 2nd term, what do you think will happen if Romney wins? The same thing! If Paul loses here, he loses the next term too, and then after that the sheep will move to the other party again and probably not vote republican. And we’re looking out far enough to the future where America might already collapse. Ron Paul has to win.

    Robin,

    “I also think Ron Paul is also distancing himself from his supporters because he does not agree with what has gone on in the conventions=the verbal attacks and violence. (ROBIN)

    It’s bizarre, I have the opposite feeling. I think that more than ever, Ron Paul wants to get closer to his supporters. This is why, from now on, he will be attending the delegate conventions.

    There are rumors going around that Ron Paul is going to end his campaign and take a V.P. spot with Romney! Tell me that’s NOT true as I would consider that a SELLOUT and would lose ALL respect for Ron Paul! I would rather he run third party! Otherwise I will vote for Gary Johnson!

    Want to know what REALLY scares the GOP establishment? Romney getting booed off the stage at these conventions.

    What a “ruckus” that would be. How dare we peasants make ourselves heard… Who do we think they are?!

    I guess Ron Paul will just have to play peacemaker, because as we all know, Ron Paul had NOTHING to do with it. It was the Ron Paul Republicans. If the GOP wants to pretend that we’ll support Mitt Romney; let them try while we’re booing him back to the stone age.

    I hope Ron Paul is FULLY aware of whats at stake RIGHT NOW. Im telling you he is not just a “hope” or one of many, he IS THE hope, the one and only…

    I am going to be very frank and blunt here, but if RON PAUL does not win THIS election there will be no America for the next…Mitt Romney WILL attack IRAN, and this action WILL bring about WW3!

    DR. Paul, You MUST stand up now like never before, and the rest of you had better stand with him, and I mean physically…This is for all the marbles, PLEASE do not drop the ball this time.

    No matter what happens in Tampa, we’ve made great strides toward restoring our republic. I will be in St. Cloud this Friday for the Minnesota State Convention. I am a delegate and we still have unfinished business to take care of. We still have 13 more national delegates to elect and a US Senate candidate to endorse. We intend on getting all the rest of the national delegates for Ron Paul (we’ve gotten 20 of 24 so far) and we also intend to endorse Kurt Bills (a liberty minded candidate who’s been endorsed by Dr. Paul) for the Senate. We believe we have the numbers to do it. We must not let those like Jesse Benton distract us from what we need to do, we must finish what we started. This is about more than just one man, this is about an idea, it is about liberty. Even if we somehow do get Ron Paul elected president, it won’t do us much good if we don’t have other liberty minded people in elected offices to back him. We need to identify all the RINO’s and neocons, push them out of the party, and replace them with freedom loving candidates at the federal, state, and local levels. We must not let up, we have come too far to turn back now. Victory is within our grasp if we keep on forging ahead. The price of liberty is eternal vigilance. Freedom is never free.

      When I joined the Army in 2006, I thought I could affect change in our great nation. I felt that I was supporting the Constitution and swore an oath based on that belief. After serving in Afghanistan, as a Battalion Intelligence Team (BIT) member (original MOS 25U – Commo, communications specialist), and witnessing the atrocities portrayed by this government of bankers, I refuse to destroy my morals and defile the names of the great leaders who instituted the United States. I swore to defend OUR Constitution against all aggressors both foreign and domestic. There are many threats to freedom, but none so pertinent as allowing any nation-less, immoral, and anti-humanitarian banker to dictate OUR rights. We the People had a powerful meaning at one time, those days are slipping away. Rockefeller, Silverstein, JP Morgan, etc. – You are not immune to these things which are happening. You will be found, tried and punished for these crimes. No amount of money can buy me, I operate on the principle of Life, Liberty, and Justice for All. I am prepared to die to uphold OUR self-evident truths, do you feel the same way? I doubt it. What good is money when you are no longer among the living? I know my patriotism and beliefs will live beyond me. This is no direct threat, this is a warning from the American People. You cannot silence me, you cannot silence the world. Obama, Romney, major media outlets… This is your chance to repent. A revolution is brewing, one that I am truly proud to support. Unity is our stance, non-violent action is our platform. Violence begets violence and should you choose to bring my brothers and sisters home to wage war on the American public, you are merely signing your own death warrant.

      I am an American Soldier.
      I am a warrior and a member of a team.
      I serve the [b]people[/b] of the United States, and live the Army Values.
      I will always place the mission first.
      I will never accept defeat.
      I will never quit.
      I will never leave a fallen comrade.
      I am disciplined, physically and mentally tough, trained and proficient in my warrior tasks and drills.
      I always maintain my arms, my equipment and myself.
      I am an expert and I am a professional.
      I stand ready to [b]bdeploy, engage, and destroy, the enemies of the United States of America in close combat[/b].
      I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life.
      I am an American Soldier.

      My oath of enlistment states that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States from all aggressors, both foreign and domestic. NDAA and the Patriot Act are in direct violation of Amendments IV, V, VI, VII to the U.S. Bill of Rights. And especially Amendment XIV… “No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States.” When confronted with such fundamental truths, how can anyone allow such blatant disdain from Obama? When did he inherit the ability to decide what nations we go to war with? Impeach Obama, forbid Romney from destroying our nation, and please think about our children’s future. I love my country, but I love my people more.

    I also think Ron Paul is also distancing himself from his supporters because he does not agree with what has gone on in the conventions=the verbal attacks and violence. I also don’t believe it is the fault of Paul supporters(they were set up), but they are under a microscope right now, so they have to think about how they do things. That does not mean they lie down and play dead. Like most campaigns, there are those that act appropriately and others who don’t. Emotions are running high now, so I think that Ron Paul knows he does not control what we do, so he is backing away. It’s up to us now. I have often felt he has not been forceful enough when it was necessary. This is not the time to be timid and placate to the powers that be. I agree with you on that score. We don’t have time to play anymore games.

    Robin,

    I really like Doug Weed. He is such an energetic guy and so positive. I wish he would be Ron Paul’s campaign manager. He often comes on the Alex Jones Show. I always listen to him with pure delight.

      French Canadian,
      I hope you are right. I remember when Ross Perot was threatened when he was running and pretty much said no one is going to blackmail me. I would just hope that nothing like this is going on. When the NWO feels threatened, they don’t pull out any of the stops. I will hope for the best and just continue what we are doing. Our county GOP chairman had nothing but praises for the Ron Paul supporters. He said he wished everyone in our GOP would be so involved instead of always sitting on the sidelines. Thanks for the info…We’ve already made some big strides in our local area and hope to do much more. Getting people to trust you is the first step.

    “Doug Weed says there are just some things that you can’t discuss in a political campaign and he was very nervous, laughing in between.” (ROBIN)

    I believe this is good news! To me it seems like his “laughts”… meant that he knows that Ron Paul is winning, but he cannot say it for now. His nervousness was perhaps because he was afraid to reveal too much by saying this.

    I still believe in Ron Paul, and I will vote for him no matter what, at the end of the day I will have peace knowing that I voted on principle and not for an “assigned” candidate which to make matters worse is the wrong one.

    Don’t give up, keep fighting, there’s still a long way to go.

    VICTORY IS WITHIN OUR GRASP IF MOST OF THE DELEGATES WERE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS NOBODY KNOWS WHO THEY’LL DECLARE FOR TILL THE CONVENTION! im willing to make a bet that for every two romney delegate elected 1 of those is a secret ron paul supporter and that goes for the other two former clown candidates! never give up never surrender! THIS NATION NEEDS TRUE CHANGE WITH TRUE LIBERTY AND IT NEEDS IT NOW! NOT 4 YEARS FROM NOW! HELL IT NEEDED IT 75 YEARS AGO WHEN THE MAFIOSO’S TOOK OVER WITH THE FED! if you need to take a low profile to get in there and get the right men elected (and no that does not mean Mittock Obamney, or the other jackass Boritt Robama) our nation is the last bastion for freedom and human thought and that little bit it has is, likely a farse to keep the population complacent and footin the bill! WHEN TAMPA COME’S WE WILL HAVE THE NUMBERS, AND WE’LL GET THE RIGHT PERSON ELECTED! AND HOPEFULLY SAVE OUR NATION FROM FINANCIAL COLLAPSE, AND HALT IT’S DECENT INTO TYRANNY AND OPPRESSION!

    AdamGmoney,

    There is in fact a NWO coming on. And you can count on Obama and Romey to welcome it with open arms.

    Only Ron Paul and his supporters are sane enough to fight it. We can win this.

    Alex Jones always say:

    “We can win this. Do you think I work everyday to exhaustion and put my life at steak here saying what I say on this show, if I did not think that we can win this? We WILL win this fight.”

    He says that the best way to fight them is to EXPOSE them. When you expose them, they back up for a while. They are counting on a dumbdown population to install the NWO… it is the only way they can succeed. If people wake-up, they are done. This is why they want to control the Net. Use the Net as a powerful tool, while you still have it to defeat them. Just don’t post only on that site, post everywhere.

    So therefore, Jesse Benton’s strategy is irrelevant and foolish. Don’t bow down to the system, don’t be nice/nice to Romney, expose their fraud, contest the GOP shenanigans in delegates convention… go public again, again and again, till every soul on earth knows about it. Don’t let them get away with that. This is what they are counting on… your apathy. If you stand up to them, you will WIN.

    Just listened to an interview with Doug Weed asking him about what is going on during the past week and about that memo from Jesse Benton, and he says there are just some things that you can’t discuss in a political campaign and he was very nervous, laughing in between. Next, Ben Swann just posted that he finally heard back from the Arizona GOP-been staling for the past few days and they say Romney has 26 delegates and Ron Paul has 3.

    I too feel this way as well. I can’t for the life of me see how Paul would alienate all his supporters/delegates and our hard fought wins. I don’t for one minute believe Paul cut a deal with the enemy (Romney) All I know is that it’s going to be a battle til the end.

    Guys, we’ve been Hood-Winked! !

    3 Possibilities;

    1)this is a brilliant strategic move;
    2)Dr. Paul, Rand, &/or the Campaign leadership &/or their families have been Threatened or Bribed by the “powers that be”;
    3)this campaign was created by the “powers that be” to ‘smoke out’ & take a census of the true Resistance to the New World Order, the numbers, the leaders, the most critical targets, & biggest threats to their power

    “All Warfare is Deception” – Sun Szu

    I will NOT give up on RON PAUL’s Campaign, even though the Campaign appears to be throwing the Fight, just when it’s looking like we might ACTUALLY WIN! Notice as soon as all the Rule#38 & #11 stuff came out they pulled the plug.

    However, I am no longer looking at the Ron Paul 2012 campaign as the fast-track to Restoring the Constitution & Freedom to America. Looks like there really is a New World Order coming NOW! We have to FIGHT!

    I am Jewish! I am a Die-Hard Ron Paul supporter! The New World Order NAZIS are planning to KILL US!!!! What happened in Germany happened because those who were turned on did not FIGHT, until it was too late!! That WOULD HAVE happened to us before our original Revolution, but WE DID FIGHT, & WON OUR FREEDOM!!!!

    My thoughts:

    1) Ron Paul HAS to become our next President! The mantle of delivering us from this evil government is being thrust upon him — and he, being the brave Patriot, WILL accept it…we just need to do our part to assure his win in Tampa (make sure all National Delegates are aware of RNC rule #38)!

    2) Seems his team though, is pulling back the reins:

    a) Benton SEEMS to be conceding to Mitt (perhaps a ploy to have his hawks relax)?
    b) What is worrisome is the transparent attempt to conciliate with Rmoney (the bartering of principles is the downfall of liberty).
    c) The plea to have Ron Paul supporters respect the BLATANT Frauds perpetrated in front of their own eyes (that one is a shocker — rather than expose the GOP’s PERFIDY, the people are asked to close their eyes, be mute and accept their disenfranchisement for the sake of DECORUM)!?

    3) Benton further astounds us with the comment that Ron Paul may, or may NOT, speak at the Tampa Convention (ploy, subterfuge or just plain betrayal)? Ron Paul HAS to make his speech in Tampa (which will finally give his message a national exposure)!

    4) Benton seems to indicate that the goal is no longer to win the presidency, but rather to eventually change the Republican Party by the election of a few Ron Paul supporters in key positions (long term wishing, rather than a spot on solution — the nomination of Ron Paul)?
    —————————————————————————————-

    My apodictic statements — and you can bet the farm they’ll transpire (unless Ron Paul wins)!

    A) Mitt Rmoney will NEVER become President (his “followers” are apathetic, and Ron Paul’s true supporters will NEVER vote for him, but will write him in instead — meaning Mitt will lose about 10% of the Republican vote and possibly 5% from the Libertarian one).

    B) Therefore, the BO will be reelected by a landslide.

    C) All of the myopic visions of Jesse Benton’s goal to have some Ron Paul supporters get elected in order to give the Republican Party “new vision”, will come to naught — since the BO will have 4 more years to finish the destruction of our nation he started (and by the time he’s done, the BO will also be successful in destroying ALL opposition…such as a “NEW” Republican Party ).

    D) Under the BO’s second term: Expect the disappearance of ALL individual Freedom, a total collapse of our economy, loss of right to private property, a police state that tells us what to do…or else…! And that’s just the tip of the iceberg!
    ———————————————————————————-

    The ONLY Logical Conclusion that follows to prevent the above is:

    Mitt Romney HAS to withdraw from the race now IN FAVOR of Ron Paul, and pledge his total support of Ron Paul! (Failure to do so, will result in Mitt becoming an UGLY footnote in US History — as the one that ASSURED the BO’s DESTRUCTION of the USA, because he, Mitt, was too selfish to assume he may win — when faced with the FACTS he NEVER could)!
    ———————————————————————————-

    Send this to the Mitt — Resign NOW in Favor of Ron Paul, or be cursed LATER as the one that Destroyed The USA!
    ————————————————————————————

    Below is Jesse Benton’s message:

    Also, if you are a delegate to your state convention or going on to the national convention, remember you are under the microscope. Say as little as possible to people you don’t know because we will accomplish much more being like a cunning fox. Also, being mutually respectful is so very important now. Let’s not give them any reason to discredit who we are and what we represent for the future of this country. As a former liberal democrat, I am committed to changing our local GOP from the inside. We have changed in all areas over the past 11 years and feel like we are the true Republicans. Even our chairperson recognizes that we are the future of the party, and he appreciates our presence and our support on the local and state level. There is hope, but we all have to be involved at the local level. Sign up to be an election observer in your precinct and bring more transparency to the process. This is what it will take. Apathy is the killer of freedom and why things have gone on for too long. People either don’t care, or don’t think they can make a difference.

    Even if Ron paul won do u really think the nwo globalists would let him step his foot into office to get rid of certain bills that are killing the united states and the world as the time ticks. I’m gonna vote Ron paul but god is our only answer the end of the world is near governments will collapse and Satan will completely rule the world it’s almost here. 7 billion people on earth we consume so much so fast we polute and destroy things there’s no way in hell we can keep prices down with that many people wake up people ur only hope is being saved through Jesus Christ. Ron paul got his message out and that’s what matters.
