Rick Santorum Drops Out: GOP Presidential Candidate Suspends 2012 Campaign (LIVE VIDEO)

“…In a surprise decision Tuesday, former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) will announce that he is suspending his presidential campaign, The Huffington Post’s Jon Ward has learned and several other outlets have reported.

The Pennsylvania Republican had taken a break from the campaign trail for several days to tend to his ailing daughter, Bella. He had pledged to continue campaigning through the upcoming Pennsylvania primary. But the combination of his daughter’s sickness and recent poll numbers showing him possibly losing his home state apparently prompted the early departure. …”

Report: Santorium to Suspend Campaign

“…Fox News just reported that Rick Santorum will, in a few moments, announce that he is suspending his presidential campaign. His announcement is taking place in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

That would leave Mitt Romney as the clear frontrunner, with Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul trailing far behind in the Republican presidential race.

“…Aired May 23, 1966. Mitt’s Romney’s father was George Romney, Governor of Michigan. He was a progressive, establishment Rockefeller Republican who viciously opposed to the Conservative wing of the party led by Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan. This is very apparent in the video as they praise Senator Jacob Javits, an arch-liberal Republican who led the effort to legalise abortion.”

George Romney was brainwashed and Mitt Romney was etch a sketched.

Ron Paul – “The one who can beat Obama”

No One But Paul — Can Beat Obama

My political philosophy is classical liberalism or what is commonly referred to in the United States as libertarianism.

Starting with Barry Goldwater in 1964 I have been a member of the conservative movement.

Today I am also a supporter of the tea party movement.

I consider myself to be a libertarian conservative, although I am comfortable with both traditional conservatives and national defense conservatives.

A limited constitutional government in scope, size and power with balanced or surplus budgets  is the number one issue with me.

Since 2006 I have been an independent.

Both the Democratic and Republican parties are not fiscally responsible.

I will never vote for a progressive and/or neoconservative whether Republican or Democratic.

SA@TAC – What’s a ‘Neoconservative?’

SA@TAC – The Great Neo-Con: Libertarianism Isn’t ‘Conservative’

SA@TAC – Daniel McCarthy on Neoconservatism

Ron Paul, the ONLY Constant Conservative

Big government progressive Republicans in the past include Theodore Roosevelt, Herbert Hoover, Nelson Rockefeller, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford,  George H.W. Bush, Robert Dole, George W. Bush and John McCain.

Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum are all big government progressive neoconservative Republicans.

The only true libertarian conservative  president that won two landslide victories was President Ronald Reagan.

Only one candidate would cut the U.S government budget by $1 trillion or $1,000 billion in fiscal year 2013, close five federal departments and balance the budget in three years–Ron Paul– a libertarian conservative.

Ron Paul Ad – Secure

Ron Paul Ad – Plan

This is what the conservative and tea party movements want most of all.

Only one candidate of either party has the wisdom, vision and courage to propose such a plan.

If you want another war, great depression/recession, escalating gas and food prices and food stamps–a warfare and welfare state– than vote for Gingrich, Romney, Santorum or Obama.

If you want a peace and prosperity economy and your freedom vote for Ron Paul.

I will support and vote for Ron Paul as a Republican or as a candidate on another party’s ticket.

I will never vote for any progressive and/or neoconservative in either political party.

Unfortunately, most voters including conservatives, vote for the candidate they like and identify with instead of examining a candidate’s political philosophy and position on the issues.

SA@TAC – Identity vs. Philosophy

Largely out of ignorance they fall for fake conservative candidates that are big government progressives and/or neoconservatives.

Gingrich, Santorum and Romney are undeniably big government progressive neoconservatives as evidenced by their own words and actions.

The American people are slowly but surely waking up to the fact that progressive politicians control both political parties in the United States.

Neither libertarian conservatives nor traditional conservatives will support big government progressive conservatives.

They will mostly stay home if the choice is between Obama, Gingrich, Santorum and Romney.

The conservative and tea party movements must rally behind Ron Paul.

No candidate is perfect, but Ron Paul is a consistent libertarian conservative and a man of character and integrity.

He is the best candidate the American people have for he truly understands how dire the economic situation really is and knows what needs to be done to avoid another Great Depression.

Joe Scarborough Credits Ron Paul for Predicting the Housing Bubble

Florida May Not Be Committing Voter Fraud But They Sure Are Committing Delegate Fraud

Republican National Committee Approves 2012 Presidential Nominating Process

“…The Republican National Committee (RNC) approved the Temporary Delegate  Selection Committee’s proposed amendment to Rule No. 15(b) amending the 2012  presidential nominating process.

Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele praised the adoption of  the new amendment. “The decision by more than two-thirds of the Committee will  put our presidential nominating process on the right track and ensure that we  emerge from the primaries with the strongest Republican nominee possible to  defeat Barack Obama,” said Chairman Steele.

Revised Rule  No. 15(b) as Amended by the Temporary Delegate Selection Committee  Proposal

Rule No. 15: Election, Selection,  Allocation, or Binding of Delegates and Alternate Delegates

(b) Timing.

(1) No primary, caucus, or convention to elect,  select, allocate, or bind delegates to the national convention shall occur prior  to the first Tuesday in March in the year in which a national convention is  held.  Except Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada may begin  their processes at any time on or after February 1 in the year in which  a national convention is held and shall not be subject to the  provisions of paragraph (b)(2) of this rule.

(2) Any presidential primary, caucus, convention,  or other meeting held for the purpose of selecting delegates to the national  convention which occurs prior to the first day of April in the year in which the  national convention is held, shall provide for the allocation of delegates on a  proportional basis.

(3) If the Democratic National Committee fails to  adhere to a presidential primary schedule with the dates set forth in Rule  15(b)(1) of these Rules (February 1 and first Tuesday in March), then Rule 15(b)  shall revert to the Rules as adopted by the 2008 Republican National  Convention.

Gingrich memo on Florida delegate allocation

“…The essence of the issue is as follows: The Florida primary, which was binding, was held on January 31, 2012. This primary was held 60 days prior to the winner-take-all allowable date of April 1, 2012, as set by RNC Rules of the Republican Party.

August 6, 2010, which states: Any presidential primary, caucus, convention, or other meeting held for the purpose of selecting delegates to the national convention which occurs prior to the first day of April in the year in which the national convention is held, shall provide for the allocation of delegates on a proportional basis.

 Rule 16 then imposes penalties upon any unauthorized state which chooses to violate Rule 15(b) by holding binding primaries or caucuses prior to April 1, 2012. These penalties include a fifty percent reduction in the number of delegates and a prohibition against RNC members from the state serving as delegates or alternate delegates to the convention. Left unclear in the interaction of Rules 15(b)(2) and 16 is whether the RNC is required to impose proportional allocation of delegates for any state, such as Florida, which elected to violate the mandate that all binding primaries and caucuses held before April 1,

 straightforward language of Revised Rule 15(b)(2) would appear to indicate that proportional allocation in Florida is mandatory upon the RNC.

Fla’s GOP delegates: Should it be 50 for Romney? Or 23 for Romney, 16 for Gingrich?

“…It only takes a registered Florida voter to file a challenge to Florida’s delegation and the RNC’s contest committee will take it up a week before the convention in August. Marc Cross, an Osceola state committeeman and Ron Paul supporter, months ago complained to the RNC about the winner-take-all question. Now Fox News reports that the Gingrich campaign is likely to encourage a challenge as well.

Here’s the memo from the Gingrich camp.

And here’s the RNC’s memo on the topic out today: …”

MEMORANDUM

TO:  RNC MEMBERS

FROM: BILL CROCKER, GENERAL COUNSEL    JOHN RYDER, CHAIRMAN, PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATING SCHEDULE                    COMMITTEE

RE: FLORIDA DELEGATION TO THE NATIONAL CONVENTION

DATE: FEBRUARY 1, 2012 ________________________________________________________________________

This memo is written to address some questions that have arisen regarding whether or not the Republican Party of Florida can send a delegation to the National Convention chosen pursuant to a winner-take-all rule, and the proper procedure to raise and address such questions.

At the 2008 Republican National Convention, the delegates approved Rule 10(d), which created a temporary delegate selection committee with the limited authority “to review the timing of the election, selection, allocation, or binding of delegates or alternate delegates pursuant to Rule No. 15(b)” and to make recommendations regarding such timing to the full RNC, which could adopt the committee’s proposal by a two-thirds vote.  The amended Rule 15(b) that was recommended by the committee and adopted by the RNC created three timing windows establishing the earliest dates on which states could hold primaries or caucuses to elect, select, allocate or bind delegates to the national convention:

No primary, caucus, or convention to elect, select, allocate, or bind delegates to the national convention shall occur prior to the first Tuesday in March in the year in which the national convention is held.  Except, Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada may begin their processes at any time on or after February 1 in the year in which the national convention is held and shall not be subject to the provisions of paragraph (b)(2) of this rule. (Rule No. 15(b)(1))

Any presidential primary, caucus, convention, or other meeting held for the purpose of selecting delegates to the national convention which occurs prior to the first day of April in the year in which the national convention is held, shall provide for the allocation of delegates on a proportional basis. (Rule No. 15(b)(2))

By holding its primary on January 31, Florida has violated Rule 15(b).  Like the other states in violation, Florida is suffering the mandatory penalties under Rule 16: loss of fifty percent of its delegates and alternates, and the RNC members from Florida cannot serve as delegates.  In addition, the RNC Rules Committee imposed every available discretionary penalty – penalties related to convention seating, guest privileges and hotel location.  Thus, all of the penalties authorized under the Rules have been imposed on Florida.

With regard to proportionality, the RNC does not have the authority to intervene in a state’s primary plans beyond the imposition of the Rule 16 penalties.  A contest procedure exists for challenges to a state’s delegation or delegates.  The RNC cannot consider any issue regarding Florida’s delegation unless and until a proper contest is brought.  If a contest is properly and timely filed, the Committee on Contests and the RNC will have the opportunity to hear the contest and determine if there are any further steps to be taken beyond the penalties that have already been imposed.

We hope you find this information helpful in clearing up some of the questions that have been raised regarding the Florida primary.

GOP Scandal: Florida Violated Another Rule?

“…Most of you will remember that Florida, by moving its primary up to January, waived half of its delegates to the national convention.  As it now turns out, they may have violated another rule, and it stands to benefit Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, and Ron Paul, all to the detriment of Mitt Romney.  It seems that there is another rule that forbids “winner-take-all” primaries and caucuses prior to 1 April.  This is being covered by a variety of outlets, but Burns and Haberman at Politico have given in-depth coverage.

They have outlined the problem, and actually quoted the GOP rules:

“Any presidential primary, caucus, convention, or other meeting held for the purpose of selecting delegates to the national convention which occurs prior to the first day of April in the year in which the national convention is held, shall provide for the allocation of delegates on a proportional basis. (Rule No. 15(b)(2))” (emphasis mine)

Uh-oh Mitt. You see, if we are to accept that the Virginia GOP mustn’t change its rules to permit others who just missed qualification for the ballot access in that state, we must also conclude since the GOP is a party that follows its own rules, it must follow this one.  I have read accounts that the Gingrich camp is already pursuing this, as they should because as the Romney camp  hurries to remind us about Virginia, “rules are rules.”

http://markamerica.com/2012/02/02/gop-scandal-florida-violated-another-rule/

Gingrich to challenge Florida’s “winner take all” rule, demand proportional award of delegates

“…He’s got a case, I think. Simple rule: Every state that goes before April 1 is required to award its delegates proportionally. Florida was supposed to go after that date but moved up its primary in defiance of the RNC’s wishes. They were penalized by having half of their 99 delegates taken away — but for some reason, their “winner take all” rule was allowed to remain in effect despite the date change. So Romney ended up with 50 delegates last night while Gingrich got squat.

But maybe not for long:

The Newt Gingrich campaign is gearing up to challenge the results of the Florida Republican presidential primary based on the Republican National Committee’s own rules which state that no contest can be winner-take-all prior to April 1, 2012…

Fox News has learned exclusively that on Thursday, a Florida Gingrich campaign official will begin the process of trying to have the RNC rules enforced so that the Sunshine State delegates are distributed based on the percentage of the vote each candidate got.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus warned Florida Republican Party Chairman Lenny Curry of the violation in a December letter quoting the rule, “…’winner-take-all’ states cannot hold a primary or caucus before April 1, 2012.”

Newt’s goal here, of course, is to signal to his supporters that he’s in the race for the long haul by scrapping for every available delegate. If Florida used the simplest possible proportional rules instead of “winner take all,” Romney would win 23 delegates from his 46 percent last night and Newt would win 16 — reducing a 50-delegate margin to just seven in one fell swoop. Problem is, the RNC’s already punished Florida once for moving its primary up by taking half its delegates away; if they forced them to go proportional on top of that, it would be an additional sanction. So, to compromise, they could in theory restore all of Florida’s delegates and then award those proportionally. That would mean, obviously, 46 for Mitt and 32 for Newt for a margin of 14. Team Mitt will battle to preserve the current “winner take all” scenario, but as we get closer to the convention, Florida pols will inevitably start demanding that all of the state’s delegates be seated notwithstanding its violation of RNC rules. (The same thing happened in the 2008 Democratic primary between Obama and Hillary, you may remember. Eventually the full Florida delegation was reinstated when the results of the primary became immaterial to Obama’s overall victory.) It’d be hard for the RNC under any circumstances to ignore claims that it’s disenfranchising swing-state Floridians by penalizing the state, but the convention this year is in … Tampa. Good luck telling half the Florida delegation to go home when they already are home. Which means if Mitt and Newt end up battling to the bitter end, the proportional scenario may be the compromise solution. …”

Gingrich Challenges Florida’s Winner-Take-All Delegate Scheme

“…From the day Florida announced it  would flout Republican National Committee rules by holding a winner-take-all  primary prior to the permitted April 1 start date, it was predictable that a  loser of that contest was certain to complain.

Now, Newt Gingrich’s campaign has  announced he will complain.

Spokesman R.C. Hammond told  reporters Thursday that the campaign is sending a letter to the Florida  Republican Party asking it to comply with the RNC rules that require contests  held prior to April 1 to allocate delegates  proportionally.

If Florida were to allocate delegates on a  strictly proportional basis, Gingrich would be leading the delegate race right  now.

Gingrich lost the Florida GOP vote  Tuesday to Mitt Romney by 14 percentage points, 46 to 32. Under the  winner-take-all scheme adopted by the state party, Romney would get all 50  delegates, and Gingrich would get nothing. Under a strictly proportional  allocation formula, though, Romney would get only 23 delegates, while Gingrich  would get 16.

Add those to the delegates awarded  in New Hampshire and South Carolina, and  Gingrich would be leading Romney 39 to 32, rather than losing to him 59 to  23.

“The existing rules say that any  contest held before a certain date is awarded delegates proportionally,”  Hammond said. “They held their contest before that certain date. So we’re asking them to  enforce those rules.”

The Florida Republican party wasted  little time making clear what it thought of Gingrich’s proposal, pre-empting the  official request with a denial issued via press release. “All campaigns and the  RNC have known since [September] that Florida  was winner take all,” said Florida party Chairman Lenny Curry. “It is a  shame when the loser of a contest agrees to the rules before, then cries foul  after losing.”

Even if Florida rejects Gingrich’s plea, though, he has the option  of pursuing the matter with the RNC’s Contest Committee at the nominating  convention in Tampa this summer. There, as RNC Rules  Committee member John Ryder told NPR as early as November, a challenge could  well succeed, given the clarity of the rules that were adopted in August 2010 —  with the approval of Florida’s committee  members. …”

Romney with 449 delegates is clearly the front-runner in the race for the 1,144 delegates needed to be nominated the Republican presidential candidate. Santorum is in second place with 224 delegates. Gingrich is in third place with 144 delegates. Paul is in fourth place with 73 delegates.

On March 6 Super TuesdayRomney won the most delegates in Alaska, Idaho, Massachusetts, Ohio Vermont and Virginia. Sen. Rick Santorum won the most delegates in Oklahoma, North Dakota and Tennessee.   Gingrich won 43 delegates out of 76 delegates in his home state of Georgia. Paul did not win a single state but did add a total of 21 delegates in Alaska, North Dakota, Vermont and Virginia.

On March 3 Romney won the Washington primary with 19,111 votes or 37.65 percent of the popular vote winning 16 delegates. Ron Paul came in second with 12,954 votes or 24.81 percent of the popular vote winning 10 delegates. Santorum came in third with 12,089 votes or 23.81 percent. Gingrich received 5,221 votes or 10.28 percent of the popular vote.

On Feb.28, Romney won the Michigan and Arizona primaries. Both Michigan and Arizona were penalized for scheduling their primary early and lost 50 percent of their delegates. Arizona was a closed primary with the statewide winner taking all the 29 delegates. Michigan was an open primary with winner-take-all in each congressional district and proportional for the statewide delegates.

Romney received 216,085 votes or 44.27 percent of the popular vote, thereby winning all of Arizona’s 29 delegates. Santorum received 122,008 votes or 26.62 percent of the popular vote. Gingrich received 74,110 votes or 16.66 percent of the popular vote. Paul received 38,753 votes or 8.45 percent of the popular vote.

Romney defeated Santorum in Michigan’s open primary by over 30,000 vote. Romney received 409,131 votes or 40.07 percent of the popular vote, winning 15 delegates. Santorum received 377, 153 or 37.86 of the popular vote, winning 13 delegates. Paul came in third with 115,778 votes or 11.62percent of the vote and received zero delegates. Gingrich came in fourth with 65,007 or 6.53 percent and received zero delegates.

On Feb. 11, Romney narrowly beat Paul in the Maine caucus by just 194 votes. Romney received 2,190 or 39.6 percent of the popular vote, winning eight delegates. Paul received 1,996 or 36.1 percent of the popular vote, winning eight delegates. Santorum came in third with 989 or 17.9 percent of the popular vote, winning four delegates. Gingrich came in fourth with 349 or 6.3 percent of the popular vote, winning one delegate.

Since several Maine counties have scheduled their county caucuses after Feb. 11, the vote count will change. Washington County was the only county caucus scheduled for Feb. 11 that was postponed due to a forecasted 3-5-inch snow storm. Washington County was expected to heavily favor Paul over Romney based on the Feb. 7 precinct caucus results.

The voters of Maine are usually accustomed to driving on snow-covered roads. Several counties along Maine’s coastline had the same snow storm forecast including Cumberland County, which includes Portland, where Romney ran ahead of Paul. The Washington County caucus postponement appears politically motivated. Romney’s campaign needed a first-place win in Maine to counter the momentum of Santorum’s three wins in Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri. Paul was apparently robbed of a first-place finish by Maine’s Republican Party’s decision to postpone the Washington County caucus due to snow.

When all the votes are counted next week, Paul said, “If I were a betting man, I would bet that we will control the Maine caucus when we go to Tampa,” the site of the Republican National Convention.

Romney is still the national front-runner in the race for the Republican Party’s nomination for president with an estimated total of 107 delegates. Santorum is second with 43 delegates, former Speaker of the House Gingrich is third with 42 delegates and Paul is fourth with 36 delegates.

On Feb. 7, Santorum jolted the race for 1,144 delegates and the 2012 Republican Party presidential nomination by a three state sweep of first place finishes in Colorado, Minnesota, and Missouri. In his victory speech to his supporters, Santorum said, “Ladies and gentlemen, I don’t stand here to claim to be the conservative alternative to Mitt Romney. I stand here to be the conservative alternative to Barack Obama.” His supporters shouted, “We pick Rick.”

Santorum won the Republican open non-binding Minnesota caucus on Feb. 7 with 21,436 or 44.81 percent of the popular vote, winning 17 delegates. Paul came in second with 13,030 or 27.24 percent of the popular vote, winning 10 delegates. Romney came in third with 8,096 or 16.92 percent of the popular vote, winning 6 delegates. Gingrich came in fourth with 5,134 or 10.73 percent or 10.73 percent of the popular vote, winning 4 delegates.

No candidate won any of the 52 delegates in the Missouri “straw poll” or non-binding primary on Feb.7. However, Santorum won with the primary with 138,957 or 55.17 percent of the popular vote. Romney came in second with 63,826 or 25.34 percent of the popular vote. Paul came in third with 30,641 or 12.17 percent of the popular vote. Delegates will be selected on the March 7 county caucus.

Santorum also won the Republican closed non-binding Colorado caucus on Feb.7 with 26,372 or 40.24 percent of the populat vote, winning 13 delegates. Romney came in second with 22,875 or 34.91 percent of the popular vote winning 12 delegates. Gingrich came in third with 8,394 or 12.81 percent of the popular vote, winning 4 delegates. Paul came in fourth with 7,713 or 11.77 percent of the popular vote, winning 4 delegates.

Romney won the Republican closed Nevada Caucus on Feb. 5 with 16,486 or 50.10 percent of the popular vote, winning 14 delegates. Romney beat out second place finisher, Gingrich, with 6,956 votes or 21.10 percent of the popular vote, winning 6 delegates. Paul finished third with 6,175 votes or 18.73 percent of the popular vote, winning 5 delegates. Santorum came in fourth with 3,277 votes or 9.94percent of the popular vote. winning 3 delegates.

Romney won the Republican Party’s closed Florida primary on Jan 31 with 774,989 votes or 46.42 percent of the popular vote, thereby winning all of the state’s 50 delegates. Romney beat out second place finisher, Gingrich, with 533,091 votes or 31.93 percent of the popular vote. Santorum came in third with 222,790 votes or 13.34 percent of the popular vote. Paul finished fourth with 117,100 votes or 7.01 percent of the popular vote.

Romney has now won in five states–Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina Florida and Nevada–and has a total of 99 delegates with an estimated total popular vote of 1,117,894. In second place is Gingrich, with a total of 41delegates with an estimated total popular vote of 837,302. In third place is former Santorum with 39 delegates with an estimated total popular vote of 381,793 votes. In fourth place is Paul with 28 delegates with an estimated total popular vote of 305,228.

Gingrich will petition the Republican Party of Florida to allocate delegates proportionally rather than on a winner-take-all basis. Republican Party rule 15 (b) (2) clearly states “Any presidential primary, caucus, convention, or other meeting held for the purpose of selecting delegates to the national convention which occurs prior to the first day of April in the year in which the national convention is held, shall provide for the allocation of delegates on a proportional basis.” This rule was approved by the Republican Party National committee in August 2010 for the 2012 Presidential nominating process. If Gingrich is successful, Romney would receive 23 delegates instead of 50 and Gingrich would receive 16 delegates instead of zero. Gingrich would then have a total of 48 delegates and would be slightly behind Romney with 54 delegates.

In 2012 Iowa will send 28 delegates to the nominating convention including 10 at-large, 12 for the four congressional districts (three per district), three party and three bonus. However, unlike other states where delegates are usually bound for the first vote, Iowa delegates are soft-pledged or not bound to vote for a particular candidate.

*Iowa has a total of 28 delegates   consisting of 12 district delegates, 10 at-large delegates, three party   leader delegates and three bonus delegates. The 25 non- party leader   delegates were allocated to the candidates with more than five percent of the   popular vote. This is an estimate that will change by the time the state   convention meets.

On Super Tuesday, March 6, the greatest number of states hold their primary and caucus elections with the greatest number of national convention delegates, 437, elected on a single date. There are seven primary states–Georgia, Massachusetts, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Vermont and Virginia; and three caucus states–Alaska, Idaho and North Dakota holding elections on this date.

A firm date for the Texas open primary is still awaiting a federal court decision by a three-judge panel in San Antonio approving Texas voting maps. The primary will most likely take place on May 29 for 155 delegates.

How Empires Bamboozle the Bourgeoisie | Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.

With US Military Bases surrounding Iran, Who is threatening Who?

by Jeff Smith (GRIID)

“…The United States has already declared a de facto war on Iran. The partners in crime in the European Union and the NATO alliance have joined in, and are ganging up on Iran as instructed by Washington. The EU voted to ban imports of Iranian oil and the Obama administration is attempting to extract similar promises from Asian nations.

Obama has succeeded in doing what George Bush never could. For the second time in less than one year he has managed to get nearly all western nations on board with his plans for conquest. Regime change in Libya has not been without complications for the west, but Gaddafi was not just overthrown, he was killed, and as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pointed out, Washington could not have been happier with that outcome.

The writing is on the wall, and Americans can expect to see a presidential address within the next few months, announcing bombings, drone attacks or an outright invasion with ground troops against Iran. The thought of this crime is enough to make any conscious individual sick with anger, but with no power in the world capable of stopping the United States, the die are cast.

When George W. Bush invaded Iraq in 2003, millions of people around the world took to the streets. Bush was discredited because of his fraudulent election and his ham-fisted treatment of even allied nations. Obama is hampered by none of these complications. He is loved by Democrats who hated Bush and was likewise welcomed by people around the world who shared that antipathy to his predecessor. He was awarded a Nobel peace prize merely on the basis of having been elected president. Such accolades give him a protective Teflon coating that would have made Ronald Reagan jealous.

After claiming that an Iranian used car salesman hatched a bizarre assassination plot, and lying about Iran’s nuclear capabilities, and threatening that nation for pledging to defend itself, the question is not whether there will be an attack, but when. The other question is what the people of this country and this world will say and do when that occurs. Iran has been demonized so thoroughly that only the most ardent peace activists will come to its defense, but defend it they must.

Iran has done nothing to warrant the enmity expressed by the west and its people have the right to live free from yet another American attack on their nation and on their lives. Thirty years ago another American president, Ronald Reagan, supported Saddam Hussein in his war against Iran. This sorry episode has been largely forgotten, but it should be pointed out that more than one million people died in the decade long conflict which would not have taken place without America’s arms and money. …”

http://griid.org/2012/01/25/with-us-military-bases-surrounding-iran-who-is-threatening-who/

Are we headed for war with Iran? A military expert sheds light.

“…As Iran defies the world and works toward building nuclear arms, Washington is turning up the heat in an effort to get the Iranians to back off. President Obama last week convinced Europe to impose economic sanctions on Iran — which some have called an act of war.

The United States doesn’t buy oil from Iran, but Europe is its No. 2 market. Europe’s embargo, with a push from America, could be crippling. And Obama is trying to convince Iran’s customers in Asia — China, India, Japan, South Korea — to join in.

The attack on Iran’s already wounded economy could push its leaders to retaliate: Iran is threatening to use military force to close the Strait of Hormuz, the entrance to the Persian Gulf, and cut off the flow of oil to the United States and its allies.

Obama has moved more U.S. warships into the gulf — just in case — while he tries to find a diplomatic solution.

Tensions with Tehran are getting worse: Did Israel assassinate an Iranian nuclear scientist? Did the United States know about it? Will Japan and South Korea join the oil embargo? Will Iran execute a U.S. spy?

In the background, meanwhile, Obama’s Republican challengers are talking tough and pushing for a show of U.S. force.

Where’s it all heading? Star-Ledger editorial writer Jim Namiotka last week spoke with Eric Davis, a political science professor at Rutgers University and an expert on Middle Eastern affairs.

Q: Let’s start here: What are the odds of a U.S. war with Iran in 2012? 2013?

A: I would say that the odds are relatively small because neither side would benefit.
Iran would find itself isolated even more internationally. A war would increase support for Iran’s isolation by increasing the number of countries willing to impose sanctions.

For the U.S., war would have a very damaging impact on foreign relations in the Middle East, where it already has a poor image and is viewed as a bully and imperialist power.

Domestically, a war would lead to a drastic increase in gas prices. There are warnings that oil prices would go up to $300 or $400 a barrel or even higher. It would undermine the already tepid economic recovery we’re seeing here now in the U.S.

Q: Iran has threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz. Is that a real possibility?

A: Closing the Strait of Hormuz would be a violation of international law, which might justify action by the United Nations — paralleling the kind of action that was taken against Iraq in the 1991 Gulf War over violations of international law. The Iranian regime couldn’t predict what the outcome of closing the strait would be, but it certainly knows that the U.S. wouldn’t allow that to happen.

Q: Europe has now said it will boycott Iranian oil if Iran’s leaders don’t halt their nuclear production. How can we expect Iran to react?

A: International sanctions have already wreaked havoc on Iran’s currency and forced the government to dramatically increase interest rates. The more significant effect is that the deteriorating economic situation is going to affect the parliamentary elections this coming March. It was Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who has rejected calls to raise interest rates, which is necessary to protect the value of the Iranian rial.

As a result, his parliamentary candidates could suffer in the March elections.
So the sanctions are having both an economic impact and a political impact, as well.

One of the few options available to the Iranians is to try and increase their rhetoric on closing the Strait of Hormuz to force an increase in oil prices. This would have the effect of at least temporarily increasing the price of oil.

Even if Iran sold less oil, what it did sell would bring a higher price.

Iran can saber-rattle and it can threaten certain actions. But the Iranians can only go so far — they’re not about to start attacking tankers and laying mines because that would be considered an international act of war.

Q: What if other countries, such as Japan and South Korea, join in?

A: You might see perhaps — not a collapse of the Iran economy; that would be too extreme a prediction — but severe economic problems.

Five reasons US must avoid war with Iran

Do the drumbeaters calling for ‘war with Iran’ never learn from history? It is tempting to dismiss their hot air as an attempt to score political points, but its sheer volume is worrying. Two former US hostages in Iran say Obama must ignore the war talk, and keep in mind these five key points.

“…The Iranians are claiming they recently disabled an American drone aircraft. If they did so, Americans should find out how, and apply their techniques to deal with those closer to home who drone on about the “Iranian threat,” beat the war drums by suggesting military strikes and regime change, and risk dragging this country into a new military calamity in the Middle East.

Do these droners and drumbeaters never learn from history? Would they have the United States enter a new catastrophe just as we are extricating ourselves – with great difficulty – from two bloody, costly, and unproductive misadventures in Iran’s neighborhood?

To all appearances American drumbeaters are no smarter than Iraq’s Saddam Hussein, who, in 1980, thought that a weakened and divided Iran would fall easily to his better-armed and better-organized forces. Instead his attack united Iranians – even those who detested the prevailing holy fascism – behind defending the homeland. In that sense, Hussein also helped the authorities in Tehran to suppress all domestic dissent and consolidate power under the most authoritarian and intolerant of ideologies.

Just because a war with Iran is foolish, however, does not mean it will not happen. Several discredited former American officials such as former ambassador to the UN John Bolton and former House Speaker Newt Gingrichare essentially calling for one. While it is tempting to dismiss the current rhetoric as hot air intended to score political points, its sheer volume and frequency is worrying. Nine years ago, in the case of Iraq, a similar flood of rhetoric, fear mongering, and distortion overwhelmed good judgment, and led America on a course that defied common sense. It could happen again, this time in a way that could make Iraq look easy.

US officials – particularly the president – who have the difficult task of dealing with Iran should ignore the recent cacophony of war talk, and keep in mind the following:

Iran is chiefly a threat to itself. Its diplomacy has been inept, featuring charm offensives alternating with making gratuitous enemies. It has few friends in its region, beyond tiny, Christian Armenia. Unlike most of its neighbors, it is not Arab, Turkish, or Sunni Muslim, and thus lacks a ready entree into regional affairs. Its support of President Bashir al-Assad’s regime in Syria, while under­standable from a strategic point of view, has won it few friends in the region.

The priority of those in power in Tehran is their own political survival. When that is at stake, they can become remarkably flexible (or brutal). As a former Iranian official once put it, regarding the Iran-Iraq war: They don’t care how many young people die in the Iraqi swamps. But they are not going to commit political suicide. …”

The Republican Party establishment definitely wants Mitt Romney to be the party’s Presidential candidate in order that the Republican Party can stay in power in the House and capture the Senate.

Unfortunately, neither the tea party nor the conservative movement including libertarian and traditional conservatives, independents, the unemployed and the youth of America want another big government spending progressive neoconservative as the next president.

I for one will stay home if Romney, Gingrich or Santorum are the party’s nominee.

Romney, Gingrich and Santorum are all big government spending progressive neoconservatives that will never cut spending and balance the budget.

Instead, all three want to start another war in the middle east with Iran.

The American people want Federal government spending to be cut  by at least $1 trillion and the budget balanced in the next two to three years.

The American people want the elimination of the IRS and all federal income taxes and payroll taxes and their replacement with a consumption national sales tax–the FairTax.

The American people want government departments, agencies, and programs shut down permanently and welfare, entitlement and defense spending cut.

The American people want government spending limited to what the federal government collects in tax revenues and no more increases in the national debt.

The American people want all the troops to come home and a withdrawal from the middle east.

The Republican Party establishment elite wants none of the above.

The Republican Party establishment has been captured by the progressive neoconservatives.

Romney, Gingrich and Santorum are all progressive neoconservatives.

The only candidate advocating limited government and non-intervention at home and abroad is Ron Paul.

Paul has been highly critical of big government progressive neoconservatives.

Congressman Ron Paul, MD – We’ve Been NeoConned

Should Paul not get the Republican nomination, I sincerely hope he runs as the candidate of a third-party.

The Republican Party establishment are simply no longer listening nor understanding what conservatives and libertarians want is limited government with balanced budgets and a non-interventionist government at home and abroad.

The time is ripe for a third-party that would attract independents, Republicans and Democrats.

No more big government spending progressives and/or neoconservatives of either party.

The American people want a real choice and not another counterfeit conservative. who “talks” conservative but spends insanely.

Both libertarian conservatives and traditional conservatives will need to find a new political party should the Republican Party establishment dominated by progressive neoconservatives get their dream ticket of Romney and Rubio, the Republican’s R&R.

Such a ticket would leave no doubt that the right-wing progressives, formerly of the Democratic Party and now calling themselves neoconservatives, have won and destroyed the Republican Party.

Real conservatives, both libertarians and traditionalists, will form another political party and search for candidates that want neither a warfare or welfare state.

Both the progressive socialists of the welfare Democratic Party and progressive neoconservatives of the warfare Republican Party are statists and collectivists that want the American people to be dependent upon big government.

The American people will reject both the left-wing progressive socialists that offer welfare and right-wing progressive neoconservatives that offer warfare.

The American people will support libertarian and traditional conservatives that advocate limited government with balanced budgets and a peace and prosperity economy.

As both a libertarian and traditional conservative and tea party patriot, I for one will not vote for a progressive socialist ticket of Obama/Biden or a progressive neoconservative ticket of Romney/Rubio.

Progressives of either stripe are tickets to serfdom with out of control government spending and massive government deficits and debts requiring higher taxes and inflation.

The lesser of two evils is still evil.

Republican presidential candidates  Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum are also big government progressive neoconservatives.

SA@TAC – Newt Gingrich is Not a Conservative

Romney Campaign Run by Charlie Crist’s Political Aides

By Andrew Henry

“…As Mitt Romney puts the South Carolina primary in his rear-view mirror and hits the accelerator in a bid to win Florida, he may discover himself crashing headlong into the bitter legacy of Charlie Crist, the former Florida governor who defected from the GOP and was soundly defeated for the U.S. Senate by Marco Rubio.
Romney’s “Charlie Crist” problem is this: Romney’s chief campaign strategist and several of his most senior campaign staff were Crist’s top political advisers — the same ones who crafted Crist’s moderate, ignore-the-tea-party strategy epitomized in Crist’s famous “hug” of President Barack Obama. That strategy led Crist, once the most popular Republican governor in the nation, to defeat.

Crist’s erstwhile political team was led by controversial GOP strategist Stuart Stevens. Stevens and partner Russ Schriefer are the principals in the high-profile Stevens & Schriefer Group consultant firm and are playing the lead role in crafting Romney’s primary and national campaign strategy.

According to the Stevens & Schriefer website, the firm had a long history with Crist, serving as chief strategists for his bids for education commissioner, attorney general, governor, and later for the U.S. Senate.

Other senior Crist political aides from his failed Senate campaign now hold key posts in Romney’s campaign. Amanda Henneberg, who had served as  Crist’s press secretary, now is a spokeswoman with the Romney 2012 campaign. Likewise, Andrea Saul, who was Crist’s communications director, now is Romney’s press secretary. …”

Resulting In Massive Government Deficits and Debtshttp://www.federalbudget.com/

“Deficit” vs. “Debt”

“…Suppose you spend more money this month than your income. This situation is called a “budget deficit”. So you borrow (ie; use your credit card). The amount you borrowed (and now owe) is called your debt. You have to pay interest on your debt. If next month you spend more than your income, another deficit, you must borrow some more, and you’ll still have to pay the interest on your debt (now larger). If you have a deficit every month, you keep borrowing and your debt grows. Soon the interest payment on your loan is bigger than any other item in your budget. Eventually, all you can do is pay the interest payment, and you don’t have any money left over for anything else. This situation is known as bankruptcy.

“Reducing the deficit” is a meaningless soundbite. If the DEFICIT is any amount more than ZERO, we have to borrow more and the DEBT grows.

Each year since 1969, Congress has spent more money than its income. The Treasury Department has to borrow money to meet Congress’s appropriations. Here is a direct link to the Congressional Budget Office web site’s deficit analysis. We have to pay interest* on that huge, growing debt; and it cuts into our budget big time. …”

http://www.federalbudget.com/

“…Bar Chart Data Source: Monthly Treasury Statement (MTS) published by the U. S. Treasury Department. WE DON’T MAKE THIS DATA UP! IT COMES FROM THE U. S. TREASURY DEPARTMENT! NO ADJUSTMENTS.

The MTS published in October of each year contains the total “actuals” for the FY just ended. The MTS covering through September 2011 was released on 14 October 2011, so this chart shows Actuals for FY2011.
Normally the chart also shows the proposed budget line for the next fiscal year, but there is no U. S. budget for FY2012.

As part of the “War Supplement Bill for FY2011“, The House of Representatives “deemed” the 2011 Budget, and the Senate completely discarded the Presidential Budget Proposal. So there was not Federal Budget for FY2011.
Similarly, the President submitted a budget for FY2012, but Senator Reid tossed it, and would not let Congress vote on it. The House of Representatives also sent a 2012 budget proposal to the Senate. Same result. There is no U.S. Federal Budget for FY2012.

Instead, we have a series of “continuing resolutions”, allowing Congress to continue spending without the guidelines of a budget. But the Treasury Department has to borrow money to pay for that spending. It adds to the National Debt.

The Congressional Budget Office reported on the Federal Debt and the Risk of a Financial Crisis in this report on the 2011 non-budget.

On 4 October 2011, a Congressional Panel Hearing suggested that Congress skip the entire budget process.

NDAC studies the Budget Proposals submitted to Congress each year by the President of the United States. One of the documents that goes along with the Budget Proposal, “Historical Tables“, is published by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Our analysis is discussed on the home page of this web site.

Just for clarification: “entitlement” expenditures are handled by several federal agencies, not just Health and Human Services. Agriculture Department administers “food stamps”, HUD is all welfare.

Some suggest “tax the rich to make up the deficit”. The total worth of all American billionaires is $1.3 Trillion. We could take ALL their worth, not just high taxes, but ALL their WORTH; and it wouldn’t dent our national debt. It wouldn’t even pay this year deficit! And if we did take their money to pay some of this year’s deficit, what would we do next year? We’ve already spent too much. Here’s a video to explain better. …”

Conservative vs. Neoconservative

The neoconservatives – a name they gave themselves – have diligently worked their way into positions of power and influence.

They documented their goals, strategy and moral justification for all they hope to accomplish.

 Above all else, they were not and ARE NOT true conservatives dedicated to limited, constitutional government.

If the neocons retain control of the conservative, limited-government movement in Washington, the ideas once championed by conservatives of limiting the size and scope of government, will be a long-forgotten dream.

Here is a partial summary of what neocons believe:

1. They agree with Trotsky on permanent revolution – violent as well as intellectual.

2. They are for redrawing the map of the Middle East and are willing to use force to do so.

3. They believe in preemptive war to achieve desired ends.

4. They accept the notion that the ends justify the means.

5. They express no opposition to the welfare state.

 6. They believe lying is necessary for the state to survive.

7. They believe a powerful federal government is a benefit.

8. They believe pertinent facts about how a society should be run should be held by the elite and withheld from those who do not have the courage to deal with it.

9. They believe neutrality in foreign affairs is ill-advised.

10. They believe imperialism, if progressive in nature, is appropriate.

11. Using American might to force their ideals on other nations is acceptable.

 12. They endorse attacks on civil liberties, such as those found in the Patriot Act, as being necessary.

Breaking: Rick Perry Drops Out Of GOP Presidential Race Endorses Newt Gingrich 

Rick Perry to drop out of U.S. presidential race

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

“…Texas Gov. Rick Perry is abandoning his Republican presidential bid and endorsing Newt Gingrich.

That’s according to Republican officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to avoid pre-empting Perry’s announcement.

Perry plans a news conference Tuesday morning inSouth Carolina, where he will announce his decision.

He has faced calls to drop out of the race as polls show him languishing while Gingrich gains steam.

Meanwhile, a swirl of late developments and sharpened campaign tactics have tightened the Republican nominating race in South Carolina before the state votes Saturday, but polls show front-running Mitt Romney still leading a hard-charging Gingrich by about 10 percentage points.

The first Southern-state vote is viewed as a chance for Romney, the formerMassachusettsgovernor and venture capitalist, to seal the contest to challenge a vulnerable President Barack Obama in November. The five candidates still in the Republican contest meet Thursday night for their second debate this week.

Since 1980, no Republican has won the presidential nomination without a victory inSouth Carolina. …”

“Read My Lips No New Taxes” Mitt Romney?–Will Big Government Neoconservative Progressive Mitt Romney Add Another New Value Added Tax or VAT To Pay For Future Aggressive Interventionist Wars With Iran and Syria?–Videos

Taxman 

Mitt Romney Open To Value Added Tax (VAT) ! 

The Value Added Tax: A Hidden New Tax to Finance Much Bigger Government

Controlling Leviathan: The Battle for Limited Government

Rest in Peace Tony Blankey.

The Republican Party neoconservative progressive establishment candidate, Mitt Romney, is playing with dynamite if he proposes a value added tax or VAT in addition to the current Federal tax burden of the American people.

Mitt Romney: “My Views Are Progressive”

The tea party and the conservative movement will revolt and throw-out both Democrats and Republican progressive candidates that dare to propose such a tax.

I do not trust Mitt Romney.

He is perfectly capable of flip-flopping on “no new taxes” just like President George H.W. Bush did.

Both Democratic and Republican progressive are noted liars and flip-floppers.

Daniel Mitchell: Beware as GOP Hints of VAT Tax

Daniel Mitchell
“…Republican heavyweights like Mitt Romney, House Budget Committee Director Paul Ryan and Herman Cain have hinted they’d consider looking at implementing a Value-Added Tax, or VAT tax, which levies taxes on goods along the chain of production.While the argument goes that such a tax raises revenue without crimping income or investment, voters should view it with suspicion, says Daniel J. Mitchell, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute, a Libertarian think tank.

A VAT tax, like any tax, leads to bigger government, which would ultimately serve as a victory for the left.

“The most important thing to realize is that many people in Washington want bigger government, and a VAT is a necessary condition for that to happen,” Mitchell writes in a Wall Street Journal column.

“Simply stated, there is no way to turn America into a European-style welfare state without this new source of revenue.”

Imposing more taxes on the wealthy won’t generate enough revenue to create bigger government embraced by those on the left, Mitchell argues.

“And that’s why, looking at the long-run fiscal situation, the left needs a VAT. It’s is the only realistic way to collect the huge amount of revenue that will be necessary to finance the mountainous benefits promised by our entitlement programs.”

That’s why Republicans must resist the idea. …”

Making Sense of the Conservative Movement

What’s the Modern Definition of a Conservative?

Movie Magic Crippled Conservatives

The Bulwarks of the Conservative Movement

Progressives have taken over the Republican Party  as they did the Democratic Party.

Romney, Gingrich, Santorium and Perry are big government progressives that try to fool the American people into believing that they are conservatives that support limited government.

All four “talk” conservative while they “walk” progressive and expand the size and scope of Federal and state governments.

What is even worse is all four are also neoconservatives that want  the United States to police the world and empire or nation build abroad–spread progressivism over the entire world–with an interventionist aggressive foreign policy!

The neoconservatives want war with Iran and Syria.

Progressives want government intervention at home and abroad.

 Do not let the so-called “conservative” talk radio show hosts fool you that they favor one of the Republican progressive  candidates as their “conservative” choice.

None of the Republican progressive candidates are either conservative libertarians or conservative traditionalists, they are big government Republican neoconservative progressives.

The Republican progressives want to make the American people dependent upon war.

The Democratic progressives want to make the American people dependent upon welfare.

Both political parties are running budget deficits exceeding $1 trillion and will never run balanced budgets or pay off the national debt.

The American people pay the bills in taxes, inflation, damaged bodies and their lives.

Only the American people can stop Republican and Democratic progressives.

Keep in mind that most of the media are either Democratic or Republican progressives including many of the so-called “conservative” talk radio show hosts.

Many of these talk radio show hosts are neoconservative progressives that support Romney, Gingrich, Santorium and Perry.

 These talk radio show hosts fear that the American people are starting to wake up to the fact that all four Repubican presidential candidates that they support and praise are neoconservative progressives.

 This includes Bennett, Beck, Limbaugh, Hannity, Hewitt, Levin, Medved and Ingraham.

The American people are reading and discovering that Republican candidates are big government neoconservative progressives and not conservative libertarians or conservative traditionalist.

Do not be fooled by either the Republican neoconservative progressive candidates nor your favorite talk radio show hosts.

I have been in the conservative movement since Barry Goldwater ran for President in 1964.

I am a classical liberal or what in America is called a libertarian.

I identify my political philosophy as classical liberal or traditional libertarian or simply conservative.

SA@TAC – The Great Neo-Con: Libertarianism Isn’t ‘Conservative’

I have read and reread the works of Smith, Burke, Bastiat, Say, Menger, Mises, Hayek, Friedman, Sowell, Rand, Rothbard, Nock, Nash, Kirk and many others.

For many years I voted the lesser of two evil progressives by voting for Republican candidates that I knew were neither libertarians nor traditional conservatives.

Only one President, Ronald Reagan, was a conservative libertarian, but he was a disappointment for he failed to reduce the size and scope of the Federal government.

I am no longer a Republican, but an independent.

Life is too short and I have wised up.

I will no longer vote for the lesser of two evils for the simple reason it is still evil.

The only Republican presidential candidate that is clearly not a progressive but a classical liberal or traditional libertarian is Ron Paul.

The only Republican presidential candidate that wants to decrease the size and scope of the Federal government, balance the Federal budget, bring the troops home and  eliminate the progressive income tax, IRS, Federal Reserve System, and many government departments, agencies and programs is Ron Paul.

The only way to stop the progressives of both political parties is to vote for candidates that truly believe in the Constitution and limited government.

This will take decades to accomplish and another political party with the financial backing of the American people.

Progressives control both political parties, media, professions, colleges, unions, and most large businesses.

It will not be easy, but it can be done over time.

Do not be fooled by the neoconservatives who are actually right-wing progressives who left the Democratic Party.

Now and in the future I will not support or vote for any Republican or Democratic candidate for any public office that is a progressive or neoconservative.

As they say in Texas, fool me once shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.

“…Sheldon Adelson likes a fight. The billionaire Republican donor transformed  Las Vegas with the construction of a vast conference centre at his Venetian  casino to the great chagrin of his rivals, such as Steve Wynn. He also defied  convention when he helped develop  Macao as a gaming destination, building casinos that have eclipsed anything  ever constructed in Sin City.

Now he hopes to transform the Republican  primary race with a $5m donation to a super-political action committee that  is backing Newt Gingrich. The “Winning Our Future” super-Pac  has acquired a controversial film that  portrays Mitt Romney, the leading Republican candidate, as a predatory  capitalist and destroyer of jobs.

Ron Paul is taking the advice of Sheldon Adelson and changing the status quo.

May be Adelson should start backing Ron Paul instead of Newt Gingrich.

The irony is Paul may be Israel’s greatest friend, yet AIPAC and Republican Jewish Coalition opposes him.

Adelson appears to have been neoconned by Newt Gingrich.

Sheldon Adelson: The Deep Pockets Behind Newt Gingrich

By Eli Clifton

“…The funding behind Newt Gingrich’s American Solutions for Winning the Future, an independent political committee, offers an intriguing clue into the financial deep pockets backing Gingrich’s candidacy. This week, McClatchy revealed that American Solutions footed the $8 million bill for private jet charters while Gingrich weighed whether to enter the 2008 and 2012 presidential races. Casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson was the biggest funder of American Solutions, contributing $7.65 million and rumored to have committed $20 million to a pro-Gingrich super PAC, a report deniedby an Adelson spokesperson. Whether the report is true or not, the facts increasingly show that the billionaire casino magnate is a central figure in Newt Gingrich’s political career.

Sands Corporation CEO Sheldon Adelson is based in Las Vegas but has business and political interests in Macau, China and Israel. In Israel, Adelson’s importance stems from his close friendship with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his ownership of Israel HaYom, a free daily newspaper which supports Netanyahu’s Likud party. Back in the U.S., Adelson sits on the board of the Republican Jewish Coalition and is outspoken about his views on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

During the George W. Bush presidency, Adelson opposed efforts to jump start peace talks between the Israelis and Palestinians and even took sides against the influential American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) when the organization supported peace talks. “I don’t continue to support organizations that help friends committing suicide just because they say they want to jump,” Adelson told the Jewish Telegraph Agency. …”

Ron Paul: What If? (speech on House floor 2/12/09) 

Update from Congresswoman Michele Bachmann on Israel 

Ron Paul Interview w/ Jack Hunter on Foreign Policy & Israel 

Ron Paul  – “The one who can beat Obama”

Ron Paul wants to secure America’s borders and not Israel’s borders and Saudi’s borders by going to war with Iran.

The American people are finally waking up to this fact and the neconservatives, Israeli lobby and the Government of Israel do not want Ron Paul to be president.

I used to think that Ron Paul was going to choose Michele Bachmann as his running mate.

Not any more.

Bachmann’s problem is she believes what her staff and advisers tell her without doing her own homework and challenging them.

Ron Paul vs. Michele Bachmann on Iran Fox Iowa Debate 12-15-11

Ron Paul On The Tonight Show With Jay Leno Part 2 (12/16/2011) 

Bachmann should have remained focused on attacking the two progressive/neoconservative candidates, Romney and Gingrich.

Instead she decided to go after Paul over Iran.

Paul will respond to her attacks by attacking the neoconservative warmongering over Iran by Romney,  Gingrich, Perry and Santorium.

Ron Paul Attacks Gingrich…AGAIN!

Newt Gingrich: Serial Hypocrisy

Ron Paul Ad – Consistent

Sometimes she has her facts straight, many times she does not.

She is simply not ready for prime time.

Iran has been attacking the United States via proxies for over thirty years.

The question is what exactly does the U.S. do about it.

Start World War III. I think not.

Covert operations to support those wanting to overthrow the current regime is by far the better option.

Ron Paul understands this, even if Bachmann does not.

Bachmann would be more useful to the tea party movement if she went after the progressives including Romney, Gingrich and Perry.

Instead she attacks the one person in the race that the tea party and independents would support.

Bachmann will be lucky to come in fourth or fifth in Iowa.

I suspect she has just come out of the closet as a neoconservative warmonger.

Unfortunately for her this is a very crowded field which the American people are rejecting.

New Ron Paul 2012 Ad – Big Dog

The Republican Party establishment prefers progressive Mitt Romney over progressive Newt Gingrich.

Unfortunately, the Republican base does not want Mitt Romney and prefers Gingrich.

The tea party, conservatives, libertarians, and independents do not want any progressive Republican candidates–neither Gingrich nor Romney.

Who do they trust?

Who wants to balance the budget and cut government spending?

Who would end the IRS , the income tax and repeal the 16th amendment?

Who wants to bring the troops home and cut military spending for policing the world and nation building?

Who wants to end bailouts, subsidies and the Federal Reserve?

Ron Paul.

The Republican establishment cannot stand Ron Paul.

Why?

He will try his very best to do what he says–balance the budget, cut spending, end the IRS and income tax, bring the troops home, and end the Fed.

Why does Glenn Beck oppose Ron Paul?

Beck is a pro-Israel neoconservative and not a libertarian.

Beck supports an interventionist foreign policy just like the progressives do.

True classical liberals or libertarians oppose government intervention at home and abroad.

Ron Paul is a true libertarian whose message is resonating with the American people.

Do not let Glenn Beck fool you.

The Republican establishment opposes Gingrich–so does Beck.

The Republican establishment opposes Paul–so does Beck.

The Republican establishment consists of progressives and neoconservatives.

This is the reason Mitt Romney is their favorite–he is both a progressive and a neoconservative.

Support and vote for Ron Paul.

Welcome to Dallas, Texas, Glenn. What took you so long to get here?

Progressives and neoconservatives are both collectivists and statists that support government intervention at home and abroad.

Eventually even Beck will figure out government intervention at home and abroad is detested by the people at home and abroad.

Suggest he read Ludwig von Mises’ Omnipotent Government written in 1944.

Hans F. Sennholz’s review of Ludwig von Mises’ Omnipotent Government

Beck goes after Gingrich.

Bennett  goes after Gingrich.

Levin goes after Paul.

Limbaugh goes after Paul.

Divide and conquer.

The big four of talk radio likes Bachmann, Santorium and Perry.

Tea party, conservatives and libertarians are leaving the Republican Party

If the Republican Party puts yet another progressive and/or neoconservative as their Presidential candidate, they will lose.

The Republican Establishment will be the real losers.

Young Americans Revoluted By Gingrich

Ron Pauls’ “Trust”

Three to four weeks ago the word went out to selective talk radio hosts that the Republican Party establishment leadership, power brokers and special interests had selected Mitt Romney as their candidate.

The talk radio show hosts did not take this very well.

Nor for that matter did the conservative movement including libertarians and tea party supporters.

Romney is considered to be a big government progressive that simply cannot be trusted.

Three out of four Republicans simply do not want Romney as their Presidential candidate.

The Republican establishment main selling point or argument was that in the general election, Romney would be more electable than a more conservative or libertarian candidate. Really? Give me a break.

Michael Savage Argues with Newt Gingrich Supporter – (Sound Clip Aired on November 28, 2011)

This is complete nonsense for the simple reason almost any Republican candidate should be able to beat Barack Obama.

The Republican Establishment knows this.

This is exactly the reason why they want their guy–Romney– to be nominated.

Electability is not the issue.

The real issue is who do the American people trust.

Obama Runs Second to Republicans In Voter Trust On Key Issues

“Just over one-third of Likely U.S. Voters trust President Obama more than the Republican candidates for president when it comes to the handling of the economy, national security and health care. However, the president does have the trust of more voters than any individual GOP candidate at this time.”

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/general_politics/december_2011/obama_runs_second_to_republicans_in_voter_trust_on_key_issues

The American people do not trust Obama–Romney–Gingrich.

The reason is very simple, Obama is a pathological liar.

The American people will largely ignore and turn off Obama’s $1 billion propaganda campaign.

The Republican establishment is having a nervous breakdown over the possibility that Newt Gingrich may get the nomination given his dramatic rise in the polls.

Newt Gingrich has issues or baggage–both old baggage (three wifes, three religions, ethics issues) and new baggage (bank bailouts, Freddie Mac and drug and health care company contributions)–that many voters are not aware of until they start watching and listening to Ron Paul’s ads.

Besides the old and new baggage, Gingrich is a big government progressive.

The tea party supporters, conservatives, libertarians, and  independents simply will not vote for any progressive Republican, Gingrich or Romney.

Sean Hannity Defends Progressive Newt Gingrich

Glenn Beck Grills Newt Gingrich pt1

Glenn Beck Grills Newt Gingrich pt2

Once this is understood and both the old and new baggage are displayed for all to see, Gingrich like Perry and Cain before him will rapidly fall in the polls.

The Republican Party establishment’s dilemma is that they do not have a candidate that is acceptable to both the conservative and libertarian base, the tea party or for that matter the Republican Party base.

The reason why many conservatives and libertarians have left the Republican Party is that do not want another big government progressive like Nixon, Ford, Bush, Dole, Bush, and McCain.

The American people do not trust the two flip-floppers and progressives–Romney and Gingrich.

Who do the American people trust?

Who do the American people know is a consistent and principled conservative that opposes government intervention at home and abroad?

Ron Paul.

The Republican Party establishment as well as the pro-Israel neoconservatives cannot stand Ron Paul.

Why?

Ron Paul would actually balance the budget, cut spending by $1 trillion including the elimination of at least five departments for starters, cut military spending used to police the world and nation build, bring the troops home, end foreign aid, end the IRS and income tax, eliminate subsidies, reform entitlements and restore the republic.

Ron Paul scares them to death. He cannot be bought and is happily married.

Ron Paul’s campaign has a series of ads that are quite effective.

Slowly, but surely, Ron Paul’s message is resonating with the American people.

Both the Republican establishment and most of the so-called “conservative” talk show radio hosts are out-of step with the American people especially America’s youth.

While the “conservative” talk radio show hosts usually will not formally endorse any of the Republican Party candidates, they definitely have their likes and dislikes which are no secret to their regular listeners.

Bill Bennet’s favorite, Paul Ryan, is not running and his second and third choices, Rick Perry and Rick Santorium, are behind Paul in the polls.

Boortz likes Gingrich.

Beck likes Santorium and Bachmann but dislikes progressives Romney and Gingrich.

Rush Limbaugh likes Gingrich.

Hannity likes Gingrich.

Levin likes Bachmann.

Savage to boost ratings favors Romney over Gingrich.

Many of the above also want young neoconservative Marco Rubio as the Vice-President candidate.

“The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 29% of Likely U.S. Voters believe, looking back, that the United States should have become involved in Iraq. Fifty-five percent (55%) say America never should have gotten involved an even more negative assessment than we found in February.”

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/current_events/the_war_in_iraq/55_say_u_s_should_never_have_been_involved_in_iraq

59% Want US Troops Home from Afghanistan

“As trouble with neighboring Pakistan shines a new spotlight on a troubled region, most voters are ready to bring U.S. troops home from Afghanistan.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 59% of Likely Voters nationwide want the troops to come home either immediately or within a year. Twenty-nine percent (29%) oppose any firm timetable and 12% are not sure.”

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/current_events/afghanistan/59_want_us_troops_home_from_afghanistan

Paul would bring all the troops home and end all foreign aid including military ad to Israel as well as foreign aid to the enemies of Israel.

While some of the above talk show hosts are closet neoconservatives, all are pro-Israel and foreign policy interventionists.

The Republican talk radio show hosts have lost their way when they decided to be Republicans first instead of consistent and principled American conservatives and libertarians.

Neither Romney nor Gingrich are conservatives.

Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney are progressive neoconservative Republicans.

Time for the so-called “conservative” talk radio show host to come clean with their listerners.

The conservative and libertarian base will wake up to this fact as will the tea party, independents and even the Republican base.
