Emergency Call To Help Ron Paul VoteWatch

With the exclusion of Ron Paul from the Fox News Forum to be held two days before the New Hampshire primary, there is little question that groups are and will be using some fraudulent tactics attempting to alter the COUNT of the Ron Paul vote. Voter fraud in Iowa and New Hampshire is pretty much guaranteed.

Why is voter fraud nearly guaranteed? Questionable reliability of voting machines, questionable ballot security, and the voter fraud that blatantly occurred during the straw polls and during previous elections. There is a real threat of the final vote counts being manipulated at some level.

Watch the Vote 2008.com is asking for people to volunteer in Iowa and New Hampshire to help ensure accurate, legitimate vote counts. Follow this link to SIGN UP TO VOLUNTEER TO WATCH THE VOTE.

Volunteers can also help the VoteWatch by double-checking the vote counts from your home computer. Sign up at Vote Watch 2008.com.

More information about what the volunteers are being asked to do can be found here. Read the following excerpt about why the vote watch is needed in Iowa:

The danger is that the results called in by the local people will be falsified at the state level. This is what happened in the 1996 Iowa Presidential Caucuses, on February 12, 1996 . The local Iowans conducted themselves with integrity and honor: they did their job. They voted by paper ballot, and immediately counted the results in front of everyone present in each precinct. The leader then accurately called the votes into the state level operatives. THIS IS WHERE THE DANGER OF VOTE FRAUD IS IN THE IOWA CAUCUSES.

The state GOP headquarters of Iowa designated Voter News Service of New York City to take the phone calls from the local county and precincts leaders at the Iowa Caucus that year. This whole event is recounted in the article, A House Without Doors, available online.

Voter News Service is a corporation then owned jointly by ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and AP wire. (FOX did not exist in 1996, but became part of the cabal in 1998.) Voter News Service, based in New York City , then simply falsified the results and sent them out over AP wire. The major media published the false results from AP wire, which “results” have stood to this day. A team in Dubuque , Iowa proved via eyewitnesses that Voter News Service stole 13% of Presidential Patrick Buchanan’s vote in Dubuque County alone. (870 Buchanan votes were reduced by Voter News Service to 757 votes.)

The idea in 2008 is for citizen correspondents to watch all 99 counties in Iowa , instead of just the one county of Dubuque County, Iowa .

Ron Paul Will Finish Top Three in Iowa

This according to the final GOP Power Rankings in today’s Iowa Independent:

Ron Paul – Rival campaigns are beginning to nervously speculate that Paul will finish in the top three on January 3. Paul broke double digits in at least two polls for the first time this week and he seems particularly strong in areas of the state where the media has less of an impact on political deliberations — especially in rural northwest and southern Iowa. Check out a Ron Paul supporters’ websites and you’ll see detailed discussions about caucus rules and strategy. The Paulites are more ready for caucus night than most observers realize.

I don’t put a lot of stock in the polls — especially considering the underestimating and undercounting they’ve done of Ron Paul’s supporters — but this is still great news!

Further Analysis of Mike Huckabee

The American Thinker has done some interesting writing on Huckabee, his political history as governor of Arkansas, and the policies he would implement if elected. These articles ad further support to the conclusion that Huckabee is not the candidate best suited to be our next president.

James Lewis writes in Huckabee’s Amazing Coincidences:

Huckabee is not a conservative. He is a populist, like Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and Hewey Long. He started off as a very successful radio preacher. Huckabee has years of practice doing off-the-cuff repartee with radio listeners. He is a master of the exploding sound-bite. But Huck is no Rush Limbaugh, and he’s certainly no Reagan. He could be the Rush from the Dark Side, using those awesome talents to undermine conservatism, rather than build it up.


In The Church of Huck: Growing Government in the Name of Religion Selwyn Duke (himself a professed Christian) lays out evidence that Huckabee “would impose statism in the name of religion through government”:

It’s not that Huck would impose religion through government. No, his actions would truly offend you. He would impose statism in the name of religion through government.While Huck will say what you want to hear to win office, he will not hear what you want to say once there. He will make tone-deaf Bush seem like a maestro…

Huck invokes faith to justify ambitions ranging from the insidious to the idiotic. For the former, look no further than immigration, where Huck espoused the Christian principle, “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you,” while advocating an apparent open-door policy. This, despite the fact that if any good Christian were to find himself in a country illegally, he would expect its citizens to demand he return home.

Ron Paul: Don’t subsidize or overthrow governments in Pakistan

Remembering the fact that the U.S. government is beyond broke right now, Ron Paul’s policy on Pakistan is the only one that makes any sense.

I almost put this in the Political Humor section but decided not to — it’s just too darn creepy.

Ron Paul’s Hour With Glenn Beck

After equating Ron Paul supporters with terrorists and alienating them from his viewership, Beck seemingly has offered an olive branch to Dr. Paul (and Paul’s supporters) giving him a full hour on Beck’s CNN show.

Whether or not the interview is completely unbiased is probably not the main issue, as there were definitely some questions from Beck that weren’t the most appropriate — or intelligent for that matter. As Paul has said about media, “they have their right to be biased.” Sometimes I just wish the media would be less biased and more eager to exercise their right to be fair and truthful. Nevertheless, Beck did let Paul answer his questions and say what he wanted to.

Ultimately it gave Dr. Paul an opportunity to present his positions in greater detail and to a wide audience. Beck deserves some credit at least for allowing that. It was interesting to hear Beck again reference Cleon Skousen’s book, “The 5000 Year Leap.” (Especially given the fact that Skousen’s nephew Joel recently said Beck “isn’t a legitimate conservative,” likely referring to Beck’s comments equating Ron Paul supporters with terrorists.)

Finally! Ron Paul Gets Fair Mainstream Media Coverage

Well, maybe not 100% fair coverage, but it’s about as close as Dr. Paul has gotten yet. Here is a great ten minute interview with Ron Paul on MSNBC.

Add Your Guess: Tea Party’s Final Donations Total?

Here’s my guess for the final fundraising number:

$8,750,000

Ron Paul Tea Party To Break One-Day Fundraising Record Dec. 16th

The Ron Paul Revolution is looking to break the final remaining single-day fundraising record that was set by Hillary Clinton who reportedly raised almost $6.2 million on June 30, 2007. It should be made clear that the Hillary record certainly wasn’t made by thousands of individual donors and likely was “pledged money” rather than actual money hitting her account, if the number is even accurate. John Kerry also brought in $5.6 million one day during the Democratic nomination 2004 convention after the primaries. But on December 16th, Ron Paul’s grassroots supporter-organized “Tea Party” is expected to raise over $6 million and this is before the primaries and without the help of a large party convention. Paul already holds the one-day internet fundraising record of $4.3 million.

Pay attention America, liberty is brewing.

On December 16th, 1773 the Sons of Liberty staged the “Boston Tea Party” protesting British taxation policies by dumping crates of tea into the Boston Harbor, helping to spark the American Revolution.

Now, on December 16th, 2008 Ron Paul supporters are staging the “Tea Party ’07″ protesting the unconstitutional inflation tax by dumping millions of dollars into the Ron Paul campaign.

Why is $6 million a legitimate number to expect on the 16th? During the weeks leading up to the November 5th fundraising haul, around 18,000 Paul supporters pledged to participate by giving $100 each. This translated into over $4.3 million in donations given by over 38,000 donors (more than twice the number who pledged). Now on the Tea Party ’07 website there is over 33,000 pledges to donate on the 16th. Double that number and the total is easily over $6 million. Plus gambling911.com is saying at least $6 million. The goal for the day is $10 million so don’t be too surprised if Ron Paul’s support base runs up the score.

Paul’s supporters around the country are planning to celebrate the Tea Party with meetings, rallies, speeches, and parties. There’s the rally in Boston, there’s events from LA to New York to Seattle to Florida to D.C. and everywhere in between. They will be marching through the streets in Vegas,

The Ron Paul Revolution isn’t just a national phenomenon. Ron Paul fans around the world will be having celebrations of their own across Europein Strasbourg France, in Munich, in Britain, in Switzerland, and likely in other nations as well.

Paul’s grassroots fundraising power is unparalleled in the history of presidential elections.Paul is expected to have the highest 4th quarter donation total among the GOP candidates. Giuliani has next the highest 4th quarter total at $11.6 million.

This Is The Time For Lawyers To Speak

From Naomi Wolf’s article on Huffington Post:

“We have all seen over the past couple of months pictures of brave lawyers in Pakistan risking their careers and even their own health and safety to stand up for their nation’s constitution. At the same time, we are witnessing at home a similar – if not quite as acute – assault on our own Constitution by the Bush administration. Yet we have not seen a coordinated movement of lawyers in defense of the Constitution in this country.”

“It seems like this is about to change. . . Conceptualized just last month, the (American Freedom Campaign) has already brought together scores of law professors and other prominent lawyers. . .”
