Isaac Has Nothing on Obama and Romney

Obama/Romney:  Far More Destructive Than Any Mere Storm

No matter how many people are injured and killed by Isaac, in the next 4 years both Romney and Obama will kill and maim many thousands of times that number.  Their senseless saber rattling ensures carnage by perpetual, immoral war.

 

 

 

Their unconstitutional Drug War fetish guarantees that in this nation alone each of these presidential mutts will ruin literally millions of lives per year— that’s if they only maim and murder at the current pace.  Each promises to get “tougher”.

 

 

The economic policies of these 2 greedy tax sucking mongrels will wreak true havoc.  4 years from now we’ll wistfully look back upon the fearful winds of Isaac as the good ole days.

 

 

I know not what course others shall take.   I’ll vote for a good and principled man like Gary Johnson rather than cast my lot with either of the rogues advanced by the duopoly.  Then, because that probably won’t be enough I will seek asylum in the nearest Ecuadoran Embassy not already harboring Julian Assange.

 

Compared to 4 more years of major party madness Isaac is happy, happy days.

More Updates are below—This is a summary: We lost big.  Ron Paul lost by doing nothing to help in Nebraska.  Ron Paul supporters all over the nation lost because he did nothing.  The good Ron Paul supporters of Nebraska  did a good job, they worked long and hard.  THEY did work.

The Nebraska GOP Convention

Nation Ruled By Swine

Saturday, July 14th — all day–as early as 8am CDT

Live Streams will be Here and Here Streams provided by Paul supporters

WinLiberty Provided the following updates all day

UPDATES (most recent items at top) :

Omaha newspaper says Paul got “smoked” – because he did nothing

Ron Paul is the candidate who made the fewest campaign appearances of anyone running—BY FAR—and who did literally NOTHING of consequence to assist supporters in the state battles all over the nation.

Again, in Nebraska, he did nothing to help.  He didn’t even bother to send a decent sized crew of surrogates to Nebraska in the last few weeks and hasn’t done anything for 2 months.

Indeed, the good guys “got smoked.” 

Romney had a crew of 5 shipped in specialists plus an attorney, all on hand to make sure it happened.  Ron Paul ALSO made sure it happened by staying away and doing nothing.

To the very good Ron Paul supporters of Nebraska:

Thank You!  You worked long and hard.  You did a good job.

(note, there was no Ron Paul slate being voted on here —the Ron Paul people did not submit a slate, the Romney side DID submit a slate; no way to tell how many on that slate support which candidate but it obviously looks promising for Romney —meaning, delegates might be “stealth” delegates who are expected to vote at the national convention for one candidate but actually support the other.)– UPDATE: There won’t be any stealth delegates; since the Ron Paul campaign did nothing but assist the Romney camp in this one don’t get your hopes up.

2:34pm CDT — They now are voting on Alternate Delegates

2:24pm CDT — (initial reports, not confirmed by WinLiberty) Romney won all 23 of the At Large Delegates

2:06pm CDT — Back from lunch, live stream working again

1:00pm CDT — lunch break; convention due to resume at approx 2:30pm CDT

11:21am CDT —  Romney over Paul 7-2 on delegates selected by district (9 delegates are selected by district)— Next up is vote for 23 At Large Delegates

10:59am CDT — Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana now addressing convention

10:49am CDT — Reince Priebus (RNC National Chair addressing the convention—neither Romney nor Paul attended the convention)

10:28am CDT — Now waiting for tally of ballots–

10:25 am CDT — RP side lost credentials vote 185-125-this indicates Romney supporters have a majority in the room.  Count is overseen by 2 representatives of each side.  First count by machine; second count is ‘overseen’.  There was no count from a show of hands, no count in public.— with just over 300 delegates present and voting, one must wonder why machines are necessary or advisable

Why the Nebraska Convention Is Important

This the last major state convention before the National Convention in August.

Ron Paul remains the only candidate whose supporters come out by the THOUSANDS.

WinLiberty continues to cover Ron Paul because Mainstream Media won’t.

Ron Paul Passion

They Will Seize Guns in Tampa-Despite State Law

Visit our website WinLiberty.com

Like our Facebook Page & Follow us on Twitter & Get our free Newsletter

Concealed Carry

Tampa City Council has asked that the right to hold and carry concealed weapons be “suspended”  under Florida law.  Since that “right” is ‘protected’ under state law and may not be violated at the local level the Democratic Party led Tampa City Council has sought to make this an issue by appealing to the Republican Governor to do it for them.  This is a stunt.

WinLiberty already has met this

The RNC WILL embrace this.  Part of this embrace is the complete silence on the part of the Ron Paul campaign.  They will NOT oppose this.

You can view one bunch of bs here.

The Republican Governor of Florida just issued a stupid assed statement saying he won’t back a violation of gun rights.  What he said decries who he is.  He Will back his stupid ass down once the Republicans in charge tell him to do so.  He’s only awaiting a “ruling” by the Secret Service.  That “ruling” by an administrative agency will come before the end of July.

It will come when there is no time left to challenge it in court and when our people are left defenseless on the streets.

This is how rights are stifled.  They are setting up a perimeter of 1,000 feet out based on line of sight bullshit which completely abrogates the rule of law.

Long standing federal law has held that protestors  MUST be visible to the public.  The essence of this law, these protections is clear to us all.  We MUST be allowed to know our neighbors.  How can we do that if we can’t see them?

This extra legal ruling will determine the perimeter of the events.  In short, this ruling is pre-determined and all among the GOP elite and, sadly, yes, Mr. Ron Paul and his campaign welcome it.

They seek to stifle. WinLiberty seeks speech rights.

WinLiberty is covering this and wants everyone to know there will be no marches in Tampa.  There simply will be no free speech allowed. They’ve already shut off speech to .7 of one mile, where they will permit speech to an industrial area well off the path of line of sight.  NO Ron Paul force is taking them on here, least of all the candidate, whose history is NEVER to take on the feds in anything they wish to do.

So you have these amateurs, these well intentioned people trying to organize marches which will be limited to the one out of the way industrial area sanctioned for a march.

Our Side Already has Lost

It’s going to work like this.  The Tampa City Council is distributing the 50 million taxpayer dollars to various city powers.  This is a grab bag kind of thing.  They are buying influence and that influence includes Republicans at the highest levels of that party.  They take these contracts AND they influence proceedings based on this money.

ACLU IS on this

WinLiberty is on this and very enthusiastically can report that the ACLU is on this.  That means legal help is available to those wising to march (well, maybe anyway).  The ACLU already has filmed the bs public assembly locations announced, doing so just the other day.  They’ve filmed the places under the freeway and out of line of sight of anyone attending the convention and this exactly is what must be done preparatory to a legal challenge.

We hope they make such a challenge.  Anyone wising to march needs to contact them.  IF you are down there and/or expect to be and IF you want to march and/or otherwise protest contact WinLiberty IF you wish to be noticed, if you wish your protest to be seen and heard.  We’ll try to help.

The RNC and Tampa Officials Are Lying Here

WinLiberty notes that the line of sight bs the GOP engages in here is directly counter to long held law.  THEY are saying it’s about line of sight to the frontage of the convention center when court rulings long have held that protestors must be visible to the public.

See, the way Tampa officials are interpreting the relevant law is exactly opposite.  They are saying that it’s about line of sight by the protestors when courts long have held that it’s necessary for the protestors to be visible to the general public.

That is the difference here.  Understand that and you understand a free society.  Miss it and you don’t get a free society.

THEY are saying hey, we’re going to let the fenced in protestors see the frontage of the convention venue and that’s it, that meets the free speech standard.  That’s not it.

The Secret Service has until late July to issue their ‘permits’ for the perimeter of the venue.  At that time, here’s what they will do. The Secret Service is highly unlikely to take on concealed carry directly as protection of that right is state law.  However, direct action isn’t necessary.  Who will challenge the Secret Service who is there to protect us?  No one.  Hence, the Secret Service, by their late July recommendations will ban concealed carry for a minimum of 1,000 feet from the convention frontage.

This, effectively, will tell you that any demonstrator group planning to “disrupt” the proceedings may be stopped and searched and stop and search they will.

WinLiberty has more to say about this and we will say it.

It’s a developing story.

Don’t Buy the GOP Swill on the Healthcare Ruling by the Supremes

“It’s gonna take lots of guns and lots and lots of bullets.”

—John P. Slevin

Health Care? Not ONE Republican has a specifically decent option.

Healthcare

 Long ago I hosted a dinner for this guy then running for Lt. Governor in California

He explained to me something I’ll paraphrase like this: “hey, if you hire a guy to go across the street and steal that old lady’s purse, are you surprised that he keeps some of it for himself?”

Now, consider the essence of this.  Are you really surprised that in an electoral reality based on the concept of theft the thugs we hire cut their own side deals?

Of course they’ll keep some or all of the loot for themselves.

Who is the operative force?  Who is the guy or who are the guys we must vanquish so as to restore sanity, honesty and decency?

Are we really run by sinister forces?

Really?  Or, do we get that for which we require others to pay?

Stop all the bs talk of how, somehow, Mitt Romney is better than Obama or that ANY Republican somehow is better than any Democrat.  Show me ONE example of where that is true and I’ll eat my shorts.

Scumbags are loose on the land.  Some call them candidates.  I call them scumbags.

To any of you who propose a partisan solution, well, fuck you and the lame horse upon which your rode.  The answer to the duopoly is not a new party, a third party which polls consistently for the liberty message, the same message which some misguided souls think originated with Ron Paul.

The answer lies in OPPOSING the oppression, not becoming the Oppressor

Ron Paul IS and backs Republicans.  He backs a failed, unfulfilled and totally morally bankrupt idiocy.  Ron Paul recommends the “strategy” of working within the GOP.

That’s Much Easier for a Sitting Member

The rest of us, Ron, we aren’t in the congress.  Remember us?  We are those who have paid your overstuffed check each month.

So much good you’ve done there, right Ron?  When, EVER have you accomplished for liberty?  Liberty is NOT a speech.  It’s one thing to do; it’s totally nothing to talk.

Now, Ron Paul supporters, those many delegates going to Tampa, what do they expect?

How many of them even will be seated?

The same idiots who put George W. Bush in the White House (Ron Paul IS one of those) and allowed that feeb idiot to trash us for 8 years are to be honored?  Are the same lamebrains who proposed as his better the crooks Gore and Kerry more culpable?

Let’s get real.  The problem is us folks.  And, it is EVERYONE who thinks that somehow Ron Paul is some kind of savior.  No, he’s not.  He never was.  For those of you in doubt, just watch what the guy has done in the latest weeks and months, when basically he sold out his people.

Ron Paul will do it again, and again and again.  Just like he’s been elected to congress…again, and again and again.  And without result.

Ron Paul could not care less about achieving anything in the congress, which is why he’s signed on to give some idiots the thrill of him endorsing a Platform change and such other bullshit which everyone knows is nothing.  Everyone, that is, except those MORONS who believe Ron Paul stands on principle.  To them I ask: When?  When EVER?

Ron Paul failed to stand with his people who got the crap stomped out of them in Louisiana.  It’s not in the guy to engage in the fight.  Moreover, he specifically issued instructions to staff to discredit those of his supporters who have been abused.

We’ve all seen that.

Ron Paul NEVER Will Go Outside the Comfort Zone

Being a member of congress is a soft, real cushy job.  Ron fits right in.  He doesn’t like to offend.  Okay.  Say that three times and it is no more true.  Ron Paul simply won’t stand up for his own people.  So, for who and for what does he stand?

We ask again: when will Ron Paul speak out against the brutality against  our supporters in Louisiana and elsewhere?  Why has he not spoken to this issue before now?

Now, I ask this as the guy who ran the drive which put Ron Paul on his first state presidential ballot ever, back in 1988.  I’m no lightweight critic here.  I’ve been around awhile and I am what is called a true believer.

I believe in and advocate concepts, principles and NOT candidates.

So let’s dispense with the bullshit.

Let’s get real and let’s call a spade a spade.

There’s a problem.  It’s that Americans believe it’s alright to rip-off their neighbors.  That is the problem.  The current health care debate is a distraction.  It’s a distraction caused by the fact that most Americans are supremely stupid people.

That’s why there are morons heading home in boxes and families weeping over fallen soldiers.  Look at the family albums.  There are other pictures of families beaming at much cherished images of their deceased young in earlier days,you know, when they thought it cool their kid wore that jockstrap of a bullshit military uniform.

Let your kid be owned by the state?  Well, then, take what you get.

Why march?  Cattle do that.  Do free people?

Tampa Declares Most of City Off-Limits to Protestors

Chicago 1968 Convention BrutalityLike us on Facebook & Follow us on Twitter & Get our free newsletter

[This is a very quick note about Tampa/RNC officials and the newest attempts to stifle protests at the GOP convention—we WILL have more details soon]

Tampa Declares Most of City Off-Limits to Protestors

IF you are going to Tampa to protest the GOP convention or anyone or anything related to it be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.

Just be sure you know they aren’t planning to let you anywhere NEAR the convention.  They figure there will  be 15,000 protestors (they NEVER cite any reason for how they arrive at that number except that it means they get to spend 50 million dollars getting ready for that many protestors.   And they don’t cite any distinction between protestor and say, “activist”.   Basically, they are making themselves as free as possible to bust any heads they want, to lock up anyone they want.

IF you are there to do anything but embrace and kiss the butts of the ignorant, bigoted savages of the GOP  you could be in for some serious trouble.

Be sure to follow our series…we’ll have more detailed reports coming very soon, here’s just an outline of some more crap Tampa cops and authorities came out with today.

Today, Thursday, June 29th the Tampa City Council finally declared the 3 very limited and out of the way spots where some protestors will be tolerated.

Basically, if you plan to protest, Tampa says you are a TROLL

They are planning to confine ALL protestors to 3 fenced in sites, 2 of which are under freeways (hence, our “troll” reference) and the other site, also fenced, we haven’t yet got a good photo, but we will get one and put it here—anyway, that site is safely tucked away where protestors won’t actually be able to get much of a “line of sight” to the convention location…like, NO line of sight.

WinLiberty Will Continue to Follow with MORE Details Coming

It’s like this: there are many, many details of spending  that have yet to be made public or otherwise flushed out, but here’s SOME of the spending.  Many dollars for “fencing”, “chemical irritants”, swat vehicles, surveillance cameras, a temporary courthouse (possibly operating around the clock) JUST for meting out sentences to those arrested at or near the convention.

None of what was announced today is new; it’s been in the works for some time.  They’ve been spending much of the last 2 years trying to determine how to jack up the size of their police force by several times over (it’s being increased from the current, normal 900 to up to 5,400) for the time of the convention.

Ron Paul Supporters Won’t Have Any Help from Campaign-So Be VERY Careful

Neither Ron Paul nor anyone on his staff will be able to see any protests and/or protestors, much less lend help in the event of trouble—EVEN IF they wanted to help you they couldn’t.  And as we’ve previously reported, so far they’ve been tolerating and even approving abuse and violence by RNC types against peaceful, honest protestors and activists.

The Ron Paul campaign already has made it very clear they won’t do a damn thing even when their own delegates are beat and broken up at state party conventions or any other functions (like the brutality the RNC types dished out to Ron Paul supporters in Louisiana and which the campaign NEVER has moved to redress).

Despite obvious and longrunning efforts of the GOP AND Tampa officials to stifle speech, Ron Paul and the people around him remain silent.  The candidate and his staff are going along with the anti speech people who basically rule the GOP—at least they are not doing anything to oppose that element.

The Ron Paul campaign has said absolutely nothing to support speech rights in Tampa AND you can expect the Ron Paul campaign will continue to turn a blind eye to any abuses of ANYONE arrested and otherwise harassed in Tampa.

So, you need to be very, very careful.  The city of Tampa, the RNC and federal and local police agencies are stocking up on things to HURT people—they PLAN to lock you up and to hurt you.

As one example, some city officials already have said one of the cities they studied so they could model their budget after a “successful” convention was St. Paul, Minnesota.

That city paid close to 2 million dollars for EXTRA chemical irritants.  Most of these numbers are NOT being reported publicly.  Some of it is getting out, but precious little.  So, just know if you are going there are going to be literally thousands of extra cops there who are there just for one reason…to cause you trouble.

We’ll try to keep you updated.

Doug Wead Appeals to Morons

Some gutter morons just interviewed Doug Wead and it really is for laughs.

Tracy Diaz, Josh Tolley and RonPaulTribune just helped Doug Wead scam some more people out of money.

I figure it’s time to call a spade a spade. Tracy and Josh are super morons, Doug Wead is what he is…and well, just watch this shit.

Right at the beginning, the dumbass Diaz says she’s sure Ron Paul still can win the nomination AND that there’ll be hundreds of thousands of his followers in Tampa.

She’s a dumbass…and Josh Tolley, the guy who doesn’t correct her, he’s a dumbass and ronpaulribune, well, they are scamming on this.  They just had a known con artist on the air and they didn’t call him what he was.  Doug Wead IS a con artist, he cons people out of money, he does it for Ron Paul and here, he does it with the help of ronpaultribune.

“…We’d need 40 or 50 million dollars to do it…”  Dougie Wead said that.

Guess what Dougie, Ron Paul, your boss, took off his contributors for that…what’s your explanation?

Tracy Diaz and Josh Tolley couldn’t possibly do worse

The moron Tracy actually says there’ll be hundreds of thousands in Tampa.  Want to bet you magnificently stupid person?

Josh, well, the guy literally pops a boner near the end, actually saying “that’s what we’ve been waiting to hear”…or something like that.  I can’t understand yokels like this, and I don’t know why ronpaultribune put them on, but they did so I revoke everything nice I ever said about Chris Dillard and the folks over there.

That’s moron city.

RonPaulTribune.com is responsible for this fiasco, and they ought to be ashamed of themselves.  Probably, they are not.  Morons who put this kind of stuff out there speak for themselves, they sure as hell don’t speak for me.

That’s the sad thing.  Complete, obvious idiots like Sanchez and Tolley continue to give a pass to obvious con artists on the Ron Paul payroll, people like Doug Wead.

Hey, the gooood news is, after this election?  Ron Paul goes back to being a nobody, a guy who appeals just to morons, like Tracy Diaz and Josh Tolley.  The rest of us can just laugh like hell at the morons, at ronpaultribune, at Tracy Diaz, Josh Tolley and the other idiots.

In a good mood, I’d say all they are trying to do is leech some of the support dollars from Ron Paul.

If you are reading my blog, well, I think you are safe.

You aren’t that stupid, are you?

[This is Pt. 1 of the WinLiberty series on the GOP convention-The Introduction is HERE]

GOP Smackdown in Tampa

WinLiberty told you the GOP convention is going to be a hatefest and there will be blood.

“There’s no place for the GOP to go.  They are going to bust some heads in Tampa.  That’s all that makes sense to them anymore, it’s what they know.  They are going for it.  It won’t be pretty.” John P. Slevin

At the Democratic convention in 1968 there was what has been called a “police riot”.

The older people couldn’t understand why war and murder of millions was wrong.

At the GOP convention in Tampa 2012, Ron Paul supporters will press the age old claim for justice.  The GOP isn’t going to like it and they are gearing up for trouble.

In 1968, Eugene McCarthy answered claims that he was a weird sort of Pied Piper who’d corrupted the youth of America while standing for those who chose to oppose war.

He answered them as Ron Paul answers for the youth of America today.

The Pied Piper

Ron Paul supporters are the McCarthy supporters.  2012 is 1968.

If we get enough support WinLiberty is going to be in Tampa.  We want to cover this convention. WinLiberty has a history of telling the Truth.  We told you the Truth about the Massive Crowds for Ron Paul.

Let us finish the story.  Help us with your contributions and WinLiberty will bring you the Truth from Tampa.  You can Donate HERE.

WinLiberty has told the Truth about Massive Crowds for Ron Paul and we’ll continue to tell the Truth right thru Tampa.

GOP Ready to Bust Some Heads in Tampa

[Note: this is an introduction to an ongoing series of reports]

The GOP Is Capable of Busting Many Heads in Tampa

Ahead of the GOP convention there are disquieting indications that Tampa and Republican honchos are gearing up to do some serious violence to people and the already tattered Bill of Rights.

Whether your trip to the Tampa GOP convention is to support Ron Paul, otherwise protest the GOP or simply to be a witness to convention happenings be very, very careful.

BearCat Swat Vehicle(The BearCat is one of Tampa’s Toys for the GOP convention in August)

On the one hand, the GOP convention is a coronation of Mitt Romney.  On the other, it’s a chance to grab more tax money and add to already overstocked police arsenals.

Tampa just got 50 million more dollars, courtesy of federal taxpayers.  The money may be used basically any way the city chooses so long as it’s supposedly for GOP convention security under the guidance of the Department of Homeland Security (which these days is top dog in major party security).

Already, the city has gleefully paid out nearly $300,000.00 for the BearCat Swat Vehicle pictured above (“BearCat” is an acronym for Ballstic Engineered Armored Response Counter Attack Truck).  That’s just one of the many armored vehicles which might well be roaming the streets as peaceful people gather to be a part of history in the making.

It’s not clear where “counter attack” fits into the equation.  How many conventioneers and/or protestors will be commuting, politicking and speechifying via armored vehicle?

The Republican host city also is adding new “eye in the sky” and other snoop technology for the immediate, express purpose of keeping an eye on conventioneers and anyone else in the area.

Originally, discussions included adding at least 2 unmanned drone aircraft to monitor Tampa from above, but that plan was scrapped in favor of upgrading video technology in existing police helicopters and providing live feeds to officers on the ground.

Security CameraTampa City officials and police acknowledge that at least 60 new surveillance cameras will be installed (locations are being kept secret) and that up to 4,000 additional police officers will be imported from other Florida communities to augment the 950 strong Tampa police force.

Tampa also has considered and even adopted some strange new ordinances to handle potential “trouble” in the streets, including a zero tolerance for gas masks.  Yes, even as they ramp up their ability to gas and otherwise maim citizens Tampa police are limiting defensive postures an astute citizen might wish to take.

Free Speech and plain old physical safety are not laughing matters.  WinLiberty hopes all those attending the GOP convention in Tampa will be safe and that all Tampa Police and assorted (sordid) other government goons will be restrained in their use of force.

Certainly, they’ve already damaged our public pocketbook.

Politics in America largely is a duopoly affair, and we don’t absolve the other half.  A week after the GOP confab the Democratic Party is holding a convention in Charlotte, NC.  And those jackasses also are up to no good with the constabulary in that city.

WinLiberty will be issuing periodic updates and more detailed reports.

There is A WHOLE LOT of spending going on…police arms and monitoring capabilities have been and are being added to police agencies in Tampa and Charlotte–all intended to limit and punish anyone with a fresh idea or who simply doesn’t fit in with the powers who control the two major parties.  It’s all very, very disconcerting.

Boys (& Girls) Still on the Bus

Boys (& Girls) Still on the Bus

Why didn’t Mainstream Media report that Mitt Romney’s bus tour was a huge flop? WinLiberty has documented that flop HERE & HERE.

The same media outlets which have ignored the massive crowds for Ron Paul speeches also have just ignored no crowds for The MUTT.

Mitt's Luxury Bus(belatedly, today’s New York Times online had this photo from inside the bus)

How come we never saw contemporaneous accounts from inside that bus?  Why didn’t Mainstream Media report the facts, the truth of that poorly planned and executed disaster which was The MUTT’s bus tour?

In the seminal work Boys on the Bus author Timothy Crouse exposed what the decried as the very shallow, imitative tendencies of American political journalism in the 1972 presidential election (Crouse was writing for Rolling Stone as was another journalist, Hunter S. Thompson who’d also produce a great book about that campaign Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ’72)

Boys on the Bus Crouse coined the term pack journalism to describe how journalists ape one another and how the news industry encourages the phenomenon, to the detriment of any reader/viewer who desires honest, detailed reporting.  Crouse documented and explained that almost all industry journalists churn out the same dull, misleading story, time after time, event after event.

Mitt Romney just got a pass from a press corps which should have reported that The MUTT’s bus tour was a huge fiasco, a series of uninspiring, unimaginative and pathetic GOP grunts and groans with very tiny ‘crowds’.  Instead, it was treated as great theater.

Flattering, closely cropped camera angles ensured that the audience (that’s all of us at home) never saw that in reality, very few people actually were at these speeches…at least, they never even came close to generating the kind of spontaneous and very large crowds which characterized all those Ron Paul speeches.

America was denied a chance to learn that many thousands of people came out to see and hear Ron Paul.  Now, the same Mainstream Media have overhyped The MUTT’s bus tour, treating it as important political news when in fact there was no there there…no audience, at least not like the thousands of enthusiastic people who populated the actual crowds for Ron Paul.

Why didn’t American readers and viewers see that fairly opulent bus in which The MUTT traveled and why weren’t we all clued into the fact that in reality, the guy took to traveling by air for more of his bus tour miles than he actually spent down here on the ground with the rest of us?

Journalism in America today could use the likes of Crouse and Thompson, 2 individuals who simply and professionally told the truth…instead of what we’ve got, a tribe of apes, journalists who don’t know the truth much less have the ability or strength of character to insist on reporting it to us.

The MUTT just scammed us and Mainstream Media helped him do it.  The MUTT and Mainstream Media each got what they wanted and we learned nothing.

Go figure.

WinLiberty has produced a series of Ron Paul Speech films.  We have covered Ron Paul because Mainstream Media won’t.

The MUTT’s Sorry Speech Spectacle Continues

Romney's Small CrowdUpdates:

9:30 am EDT Rally at Bavarian Inn in Frankenmuth, MI

Update: Romney BOMBED in Frankenmuth-another tiny crowd

Another small crowd for Romney(almost could fit Romney’s audience into one campaign bus-slight exaggeration )

1:15 pm EDT Sweetie-licious Bakery Café in DeWitt, MI

Update: Another Epic Fail; Crowd of “hundreds”-again not Ron Paul Size

6:25 pm EDT Rally at Holland State Park Holland, MI

They are busing them in; not enough buses, I guess…

Romney and All-Star Republicans Can’t Draw a Large Crowd

To say there’s no excitement for presumed nominee Romney is an understatement.

This MUTT can’t BUY a crowd.  Pawlenty, Ryan, Walker and Boehner -.the bunch of ’em can’t draw a crowd.

By comparison, Ron Paul routinely has drawn thousands to speech events.

Here’s a WinLiberty film recording thousands at a Ron Paul Speech
