Ron Paul Fox News Phone Blitz

Sidenote to the Fannities: Thanks for linking to us! You should turn off your faux news and stop trying to start more wars with those scary middle eastern countries who HAVE NEVER ATTACKED US — you’d have time to leave your Hannity forum more often and learn about what’s really going on in the world.

(Updated on Jan 6th, 2008)

First of all kudos to the NH GOP for pulling their sponsorship of the Fox forum! There was a lot of confusion out there about this story, some of it no doubt the result of intentional misinformation. In the last few days there were many rumors and conflicting reports. Anti-Ron Paul WorldNetDaily even claimed the forum was canceled. The bottom line is Ron Paul was excluded unfairly from the Fox News forum. Because of this and all of the other nonsense Fox pulls, I say no matter what’s going on let’s pester them indefinitely. For now email, write and call them and let them know you want fair coverage and equal inclusion for Ron Paul on everything all the time.

The background info on this story is this:

By now most of you probably know that Fox News is scared of Ron Paul and they are snubbing him by not letting him into their latest forum in New Hampshire on Jan. 6th. Of course the main focus and energies of the Ron Paul Revolution should be on getting Ron elected and on positives like the message of liberty and peace. If you are in a location and position to impact Iowa, New Hampshire, or any other primaries, etc. do that instead and forget about Fox! But Faux News is playing dirty and it won’t hurt for some of the rest of us to let them know we aren’t happy about it. The pressure is already working so lets keep it going!

Note: there have been efforts by some to organize specific call in times as part of the phone blitz. I don’t have time to sift through everyones strategies and opinions on the matter and put up links so just do what you think is best, but the main idea is to hit them hard during east coast business hours. Give Fox and their sponsors a call anytime — especially this week — and let them know how you feel in a bold, direct, intelligent and polite way. The more calls the better, if you get a busy signal try another number.

  1. Good info, I guess I’m still trying to figure out what’s going on here.

    Go Ron Paul!

  2. Thanks for putting this stuff up. I’m not a Paul supporter, nor a Republican, but it’s so funny how FOX is ignoring Paul. Equally funny is the way that they have unleashed the dogs on Huckabee. They are going to great ends to support Rudy’s run for the White House and they’ve gone beyond transparent.

  3. As far as the confusion, I tend to not always trust the Worldnet Daily stuff if it has anything to do with Ron Paul. They’re claiming the debate was “officially canceled three weeks ago.” Why did AP run this story Dec. 27th and not have retracted it if it was just a rumor?

    GOP candidates to meet at NH forum

    Or this story on Yahoo Finance:

    Has Fox News Excluded Ron Paul?

    The Baltimore Sun, a NH GOP Leader, as well as various supporter telephone calls to Fox and NH GOP have also confirmed the debate.

  4. […] After watching check this out and take action: Ron Paul Fox News Phone Blitz […]

    Ron Paul
    Hope For AMERICA
    Be a Part of it!!!

    First they came for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up, because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up, because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up, because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time there was no one left to speak up for me. by Rev. Martin Niemoller, 1945

  6. Please see this ad which ran in New Hampshire’s Manchester Union Leader newspaper 2 days before the Primary: http://www.votefraud.org/ron_paul_NH_newspaper_2008.pdf It was an attempt to get poll watchers to watch the polls.

    If you watched the New Hampshire primary results come in as I did, you would have noticed that the distribution of votes remained constant, with no change or fluctuation over the whole state, all night. In the real world- that doesn’t happen. In the real world we could have expected sudden surges as one candidate pulled ahead as votes from some towns were tallied, but that didn’t happen- the percentages stayed constant- a sure sign that the fix was in from the beginning.Jim Condit clearly spells out the problem we’re facing at http://www.votefraud.org Especially see these key articles in his archives http://www.votefraud.org/primer_archive_articles.html

    In the town of Sutton, at least 3 people voted for Ron Paul, but their votes were not tallied http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/files/elections/2008/by_county/NH_GOP_0108.html?SITE=NPRELN&SECTION=POLITICS yet check this out: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?t=82909

    “My mom, aunt, and dad all voted for RP today in my hometown, My mom and aunt both work passing out ballots, and checking them off. I just looked at the politico map and it says their town has ZERO votes for Ron. Now i know that there isn’t corruption on voting in that little town, so where they reported it must be. What do I do, anyone know???

This is a town that had 20 people counting the ballots and I have no reason to believe that they cheated. Small town and I was born and raised there. The real numbers will come in by morning. The electronic machines in the big towns are the ones we have to worry about.”

    A YouTube video from Black Box Voting that you won’t soon forget:


    John Silvestro and his small private business, LHS Associates, has
    exclusive programming contracts for ALL New Hampshire voting machines,
    which combined will count about 81 percent of the vote in the primary. And
    as to Super Tuesday and beyond: Silvestro also has the programming
    contracts for the states of Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Vermont.

    Silvestro IS the New Hampshire chain of custody in New England — Or at
    least, a very large component in it.

    Last fall, with the help of citizens like you, Black Box Voting began
    working on “Chain of Custody” projects, in which we identified some of
    the areas of concern that might affect many jurisdictions at once. First
    on the list for the Northeast U.S. is LHS Associates, a vendor with
    inside access to every memory card, as well as to the chips containing
    the “brain” of the Diebold optical scan machines.


    In an unusual confluence of available video, we obtained footage of
    Silvestro grappling with Harri Hursti, the master hacker who had his way
    with the Diebold optical scans in Leon County, Florida in the famous
    exploit that was showcased in the film Hacking Democracy.

    The exact same make, model and version hacked in the Black Box Voting
    project in Leon County is used throughout New Hampshire, where about 45
    percent of elections administrators hand count paper ballots at the
    polling place, with the remaining locations all using the Diebold version
    1.94w optical scan machine. Because the voting machine locations tend
    to be urban, this represents about 81 percent of the New Hampshire

    The video shows Harri Hursti testifying on Sept. 19 before the New
    Hampshire legislature, attempting to explain significant vulnerabilities
    requiring urgent mitigations; throughout his testimony, Silvestro
    inserted his own comments, opinions, misstatements and speculations.


    One area of disagreement between Hursti and Silvestro was the amount of
    expertise needed to exploit the Diebold 1.94w optical scan system.
    Silvestro claimed (in a strange contortion of reasoning) that he doesn’t
    hire very skilled programmers, implying that this makes New Hampshire
    elections more secure.

    Hursti pointed out that hiring programmers with a lack of knowledge is
    generally not considered a security feature, and also that an average
    high schooler can learn to exploit the system in two days to two weeks.


    Black Box Voting purchased a Diebold optical scan with 1.94w firmware,
    and chose a computer repair shop out of the phone book, took it in,
    grabbed the first available technician. It took him less than 10 minutes
    to zero in on the memory card as a point of critical vulnerability —
    and oh my, did he point out some other intersting things!


    Silvestro tries to claim that the security problems have been fixed in
    newer editions. Whether or not they have been, it’s a moot point in New
    Hampshire where the upgrade is not made unless the Ballot Law
    Commission meets, and they have not met for ages.

    Silvestro then points to extraordinary measures taken by other states
    to enact special procedural safeguards, but of course none of those were
    implemented in New Hampshire either, because the Ballot Law Commission
    has not bothered to meet since March 2006.


    Not only that, they have turned all the programming over to a sole
    source private company, taking vote counting for 81 percent of New
    Hampshire citizens out of the public domain.

    LHS is not subject to public records requirements, as the government
    is, at least, not in New Hampshire. The control over memory card contents
    is absolute; when cards malfunction or get lost, LHS brings the


    Since LHS maintains the machines, repairs the machines, and replaces
    the machines — often on Election Day — when they malfunction, they have
    intimate access to the chips, sockets, ports, communications devices
    and other electronic components.

    Silvestro stated that the chip has “read only memory” and cannot be
    reprogrammed without frying it under ultraviolet light overnight.

    Hursti never had a chance to examine the hardware, nor have most of the
    recent university studies had access. But our friendly neighborhood
    computer repair guy differed with Silvestro on the point of plug & play
    reprogramming of the guts of the machine.

    After I push the button to send this message out to the media and the
    citizenry, I’ll work on getting a short YouTube video of the Accuvote
    checkup by our local computer repairman. And before you say, “But wait!
    He’s not a world class expert!” — That’s just the point.

    Our local computer repairman may hit or miss on some of his analyses.
    You’ll all be able to try your hand at second guessing him as soon as
    the next video is up. But if he hits even one of his ideas for how to
    exploit the machine to steal votes, that’s all it takes. From someone who
    is not, certainly, a world class hacker or even a hacker at all.

    I’ll post the link to that in a follow up here:
    http://www.bbvforums.org/forums/messages/1954/71200.html?1199744175 ,
    and invite you techs to weigh in.

    The We the People Foundation has filed this lawsuit in all 50 states to push for verifiable paper ballots in all elections http://www.wethepeoplefoundati…..-11-06.htm They deserve everyone’s support. We must immediately challenge this rigged Primary and demand a recount. If Ron Paul’s campaign staff doesn’t do it, as far as I’m concerned that would be indicative of plants on the staff.

    How could that be? Melinda Pillsbury has exposed the Cato Institute, a Libertarian Think Tank in Washington DC as being controlled by the Neocons- see her excellent article “The Enemy Within- Cato’s Covert Agenda” at http://www.nolanchart.com/author18.html

    Jim Condit of http://www.votefraud.org had poll watchers in at least some of the precincts. I talked with him yesterday, and will be in touch with him about anything they might have found out. If there were any discrepancies in those precincts that used paper ballots, he would have found them out. Also, if the result from the precincts counted via paper ballots differed noticably from those where the vote was counted by LHS associates using hackable Diebold Machines, that would also raise a red flag. Stay tuned folks, and while this gets sorted lets keep pushing full tilt for Dr. Paul. We have no choice at this point, he either gets elected, or we get the iron boot of tyranny stomping in our faces forever.

    WHAT TO DO: Call Ron Paul’s campaign office at 703-248-9115 and demand that they officially demand a RECOUNT!! The Supreme Court has ruled that a constitutional election entails two things 1) That we have the right to cast a vote, and 2) We have the right to have that vote COUNTED accurately!

    It is very evident from the information cited in this message that LHS Associates just rigged the New Hampshire primary. Every American who has contributed to the Ron Paul campaign has just been ROBBED along with the registered voters of New Hampshire including those in Sutton whose votes were not counted! Email this whole alert to Ron Paul via this contact form on their website http://www.ronpaul2008.com/contact/form





    In 1996, Fox News began broadcasting extreme right propaganda labeled “fair and balanced” reporting.

    Fox “News” today is little more than an advertising arm of the current White House administration. With a clear intent : disseminate false information to support a government administration that came to power under questionable circumstances; maintain a government administration that remains in power through more questionable circumstances; and disseminate false and misleading information to the American People to support that current [and questionable] government administration.

    We, the American People, will no longer tolerate or support advertising or political propaganda in the guise of “news.” We will no longer tolerate or accept the brainwashing of America. We will no longer tolerate or support any sponsor who financially supports or contributes to Fox News’ continued and mis-labeled “journalistic” practices

  10. N.H. Recount – Urgent Action Required
    I was on the road from January 15-25th and fully expected the recount to be completed by the time I returned to Texas. On January 25, 2008, I spoke with a true American patriot named Eric, who has been on the ground since the beginning and has sacrificed a great deal for all of us. During our conversation, Eric informed me that the recount had been repeatedly delayed and there was a problem with the chain of custody with the ballots among other possible violations of the law. While listening to Eric as I was driving, had my rental vehicle been steam driven, I could have powered it the rest of the way home I was so incensed……..

  11. Just when you think the Big Business Lobbyists can’t be any more callous …

    At the same time as reports that we may be in an economic recession and that the job market is getting more and more difficult for Americans, the magazines, newspapers and airwaves are filled with op-eds, editorials and articles quoting the business leaders and lobbyists saying we must import more foreign workers!
    The Big Business Lobby and its well-compensated friends in Congress always use every upturn in the economy to cry for more foreign labor because of perceived shortages. But they never change their tune when the economy turns down. In every period of rising unemployment, the Big Business Lobby continues to cry about terrible worker shortages and always brings in hundreds of thousands of foreign workers during recessions.

    Your NumbersUSA Capitol Hill Team has talked to a number of people who have been in high level Hill meetings where leaders of both Parties have expressed a desire during this time of economic turmoil to sneak through giant increases of H-1B visas for foreign tech workers, H-2B visas for foreign laborers, greencards for permanent foreign nurses and a five-year visa for 12-20 million illegal foreign workers and their dependents.

    Friends, I know that all of this may seem too crazy to be true. But please believe me that that the worse our country’s economic situation, the more your congressional leaders see a chance to give their corporate sponsors the huge foreign labor increases that the People’s Lobby has been blocking the last several years.

    Both the Democratic and Republican leadership of U.S. House and Senate are right now conspiring to bring legislation to the floor to greatly expand the pool of foreign labor in this country — even as they talk about the need for taxpayers to provide more unemployment compensation for all the Americans who are losing their jobs.

    This kind of insanity is nothing new.

    And it will never slow down unless we as a Lobby of the People mobilize in massive fashion to put an end to it.
