Ron Paul Media Alert

by Doug Mataconis

Ron Paul will be on Glenn Beck’s program on CNN Headline News tonight:

Glenn Beck just announced that he will be talking tonight “one on one” with Ron Paul on CNN. Rudy Giuliani did Ron Paul’s campaign a big favor by singling him out. Courtesy of Rudy, Paul is finally getting coverage and many more opportunities to explain his views at length.

In his comments, Beck also claimed that Paul “blamed America for 9-11.” Of course, Paul did nothing of the sort. He simply stated that past American policies had created conditions which made an attack more likely.

Beck’s show airs at 7pm Eastern time, with replays at 9pm and Midnight

Update: Lew Rockwell is reporting that Paul will also be on Wolf Blitzer’s CNN show at 5pm today.

  2. the more exposure Ron Paul gets, the more the American people will understand his policies and begin to see how the Mass Media has been misrepresenting him…

  4. >> Of course, Paul did nothing of the sort.

    Yes, I watched it last night and with Tivo, I was able to rewind and hear exactly what he said. He certainly did blame America for 9-11.

    He’s a complete quack. The whole idea of complete disengagement is completely ridiculous. It’s merely a good piece of advice from George, not a foreign policy. Republicans who believed that we should not enter WW2 were completely wrong, since WW2 is a perfect example of what always happens when good people let evil flourish.

  5. Gunnar-
    If you had listened to Dr. Paul’s main point about the war, you would understand that WWII was a declared war. The Congress of the United States declared war on an enemy and we had a goal, and we won.
    Congressman Paul reminded us again that we are fighting an undeclared war in Iraq which violates our Constitution.

  6. Gunnar,

    He blamed our policy of medeling with other countries afairs. There is a big difference.

    The best question of the debate

    How would you feel if China came here and built a military base?

    So Gunnar how would you feel about that?

  7. For some time now I have been receiving weekly emails from Rep. Paul that present his views on issues that concern all Americans. If Rep. Ron Paul gets the GOP nomination I will vote for him. If fact as an unaffiliated registered voter I will register as a republican so that I can vote for Rep. Paul in my states primary. Rudy Giuliani IMO is nothing more than a common opportunistic gangster waiting to complete the fascistization of America.

    BTW The last time I voted for a republican/Conservative was in 1970 for Paul Adams for Governor of NYS.

  8. Yesterday, I became aware of Ron Paul as I was watching the Fox News Debate. I have been studying about him since then. He is exactly what our country needs at this time. He is the only person that truly and accurately understands the problems of our government’s foreign and economic policies! All the other politicians are simply actors/actress/hypocrites that just want power and fame.

  9. Oh man, this should be interesting.

    Glenn Beck is nothing but a loudmouth, fear mongering, hate merchant. He makes his money by making radical statements regarding wedge issues. Truly a class act…

    WTF, Ron Paul getting coverage? Sure, but we’ll see how much of this coverage is positive and how much of it is nothing but smear tactics. It looks to me like the establishment lap dogs are lining up for their masters, trying to impress them by confronting what they fear. Perhaps Glenn Beck’s plan is to climb a notch or two on the crooked ladder by showing his establishment masters how good of a poodle he can be. Whatever Beck can do to get people to look at him I guess.

    Paul caught the elites off guard and the cronies are scrambling to do damage control. Long live social networking and user generated content, long live the Internet. It’s true, the revolution of everything will not be televised.

  10. You know, that move of putting words in Ron’s mouth, making demagoguery just to give the audience a reason to cheer… man, I’d have expected this behavior from socialist or democrats (that’s how their propaganda works), but not from a Republican. Shame on you, Rudy!

    By the way, Ron is very straightforward about foreign policy, and his reasoning is sound:

  11. >> would understand that WWII was a declared war

    You’re putting the cart before the horse. Isolationists argued for isolation prior to the war. They were wrong, since with that delay, the forces of evil became incredibly stronger, resulting in 72 million dead. The lesson of WW2 is fight evil early, often, and never give up.

    The alleged point about “declared war” is pure sophistry. The constitution does not require the exact words “declare war” to be used.

    >> medeling with other countries afairs

    You need to learn some history. To understand the enemy, you must at least know as much history as they do, since they aren’t letting by-gones be by-gones. It’s a continuous sequence of events:

    The Mufti el-huseini was a muslim nazi (Reference, Reference, Reference). The original reason for US hatred by Islamic extremists is that in a few short years, the US entered WW2 and destroyed their beloved Nazi germany. After nazi germany was destroyed, many nazis escaped to Egypt, and converted or took muslim names. The mufti is the father of all modern muslim extremist movements. The Mufti instigated a nazi coup with a man in Baghdad. Saddam Hussein was that mans’ newphew, and was raised by him. One of the Mufti’s disciples was Yassar Arafat. The Mufti was instrumental in starting the Baathist (nazi) parties in Syria and Iraq. The connection between Islamics and Nazis has always been there. It was the Mufti who orchestrated the 1948 attack on Israel, 3 years after WW2, and directly after the founding of Israel. The Mufti was active in the muslim brotherhood which is the prototype of all the islamic terror groups. The mufti was trying to organize all of arabia into a fascist state, but the US counter attacked by creating regimes friendly to US interests, and relegating the Mufti to the sidelines. Each event since then furthers this continuing battle between us and these nazi-like evil guys.

    If you truly believed in human rights, ie Life, Liberty and Property, you would know that sovereignty does not trump human rights. There is no right to right to violate rights.

    >> if China came here and built a military base?

    My goodness, you have an inverted morality, with no context. If china came here to oppress the american people, it would be wrong. In Iraq, we have freed 25 million people. We are liberators, just like when the US liberated my native country of Norway. By your logic, you would have been appalled when the US invaded Europe on D-day.

  13. Ron Paul is a Patriot! A patriot isn’t popular at first. He is with me! What a brave man–I can’t imagine having the kind of guts he has. He doesn’t play games–he just talks and his truthiness is overwhelming! I was so nervous for him, yet overflowing with pride!

    Comment by radiofriendly — May 16, 2007 @ 2:35 pm
  14. This could be very good, or it could be the final nail in his campaign’s coffin. I don’t care if Paul loses the nomination, but I’ll be upset if his voice is silenced so long before the primaries are decided. Even in last night’s debate you could begin to see other candidate’s beginning to incroporate his ideas. (I believe it was Hunter who invocated the idea that we simply follow Article I Section 8 to reduce the size of our budget).

    Comment by Seer — May 16, 2007 @ 2:36 pm
  15. The smear campaign is the best thing that could happen to Dr. Paul. The game has changed, and the MSM can no plonger pretend he doesn’t exist.

    Comment by Sam Marsh — May 16, 2007 @ 2:36 pm
  16. All Rudy can do is parrot 911 a million times and we are sick of it.
    He has no grasp of foreign policy!

    And Wolf made no mention of the appearance nor the Glenn Beck rumor.

    The official campaign has not said there will be an appearance but you could keep CNN on just in case. (yes I work with the official campaign, and we are not ‘well organized’ as Hannity claimed was the cause of the cell phone vote!)

  20. Ron Paul is the GOP version of Dennis Kucinich. Both of them are crackpot congressmen that are an embarassment to their parties. Only thing I don’t get is how both of these loons keep getting elected…something must be in the Ohio and Texas water supply.

    Comment by Timmie Timson — May 16, 2007 @ 3:47 pm
  21. Yeah, timmie. Ohioans and Texans are complete idiots. After all they gave us Bush in 2000 and 2004. Their water must be pure LSD.

    Great point, keep it up. The more idiotic accusations people like you make, the shorter the “ridicule” period will be.

  23. meant to add: Ron Paul has about 11/15 minutes left, should be over by June 1st.

    Comment by Timmie Timson — May 16, 2007 @ 4:02 pm
  24. Timmie he already has been taken seriously.

    Sorry about that. Maybe next election cycle the fringe candidates will behave more fringy.

    Lets see 70% of people are against the war but out of all the candidates so far 70% are for the war.

    Yet people like timmie want act like the candidates for the mainstream are the rational ones.

  25. Dr. Paul has lots of courage. His answers at the debates have been concise and clear. He has a PHD in medicine and yet people have been calling him irrational. If Dr. Pauls critics would take half the time doing historical research that they spend trying to debase him it would drastically change their point of view. Just because his message is different it scares many people. Be courageous like Dr. Paul and wisdom will follow.

    Comment by Alaskancoyote — May 16, 2007 @ 4:48 pm
  26. Hey Gunnar,

    If you poke a hornets nest repeatedly with a stick, who’s fault is it when the bees sting you?

    You can only screw with people for so long before they will eventually do something about it, wrong or not, they will react.

    Part of sovereignty is also policing and border control, and in this case more importantly its figuring out what happened afterward with an investigation. Sorry dude, but some of the blame does fall squarely on the US. Being on the receiving end of US foreign policy isnt always nice, in fact most of the time it downright sucks. We have one very petty, backstabbing, childish acting country, get used to it, I dont think its gonna change anytime soon. The consequence is an occasional potshot by someone with a grudge.

    Comment by pedex — May 16, 2007 @ 4:57 pm
  27. Having been represented by Ron Paul in Congress (that’s right, I’m from Texas), I know his politics well. He is an ardent defender of the Constitution, so it goes without saying that “real Americans” like Rudy G. will attack him at every turn.

    Ron Paul doesn’t have a chance because Americans turned their backs on the Constitution long ago. The ONLY reason most people oppose the Iraq war is because we’re losing. If we were winning, people would be cheering for the next invasion… Iran?, Syria?, Lebanon? ….

    Really? We let Joe Stalin do his thing. And still the world turns. And it appears he beats out old Adolf in total number of murders:

    It’s easy to mouth pithy aphorisms. It’s harder to actually learn something about history. And harder still to deal with the moral certainty that ultimately, you are responsible for you, and the defense of you, and that’s it.

    Comment by Chuck — May 16, 2007 @ 5:14 pm
  29. I have been waiting for someone knowledgeable and articulate to make the points that Dr. Paul made last night. Our country cannot succeed if we continue to hide behind simple minded meaningless platitudes and hypocracy. I love this country and want it to be the country of democracy and justice for all. It is a tall order, but key to that powerful goal is honesty. Throughout the world we have been a bully, supporting dictators, ensuring their leadership which ensures our economic strength. We can’t committ acts of brutality from El Salvador to Iraq and think that other people are going just take it. We are finally being challenged. I was very proud of Dr. Paul last night and for the first time in many years felt that we were hearing a voice of a brave fearless man. For every brave New Yorker who died in the towers, for all Petagon deaths and for every soldier who has died and been mained for a sensless unwinable war I pray that we can reflex as a nation and change our course to one we all can be proud of. God Bless.

  30. It’s just not working for RUDY! Including the main issue he wanted to run on! How could he fail so miserably on this most important issue. Did he not read the commission report? I found portions of this on Yahoo! I think he owes Dr. Ron Paul a huge apology!

    The 9-11 Commission report detailed how bin Laden had, in 1996, issued “his self-styled fatwa calling on Muslims to drive American soldiers out of Saudi Arabia” and identified that declaration and another in 1998 as part of “a long series” of statements objecting to U.S. military interventions in his native Saudi Arabia in particular and the Middle East in general. Statements from bin Laden and those associated with him prior to 9-11 consistently expressed anger with the U.S. military presence on the Arabian Peninsula, U.S. aggression against the Iraqi people and U.S. support of Israel.

    The 9-11 Commission based its assessments on testimony from experts on terrorism and the Middle East. Asked about the motivations of the terrorists, FBI Special Agent James Fitzgerald told the commission: “I believe they feel a sense of outrage against the United States. They identify with the Palestinian problem, they identify with people who oppose repressive regimes, and I believe they tend to focus their anger on the United States.”

    Fitzgerald’s was not a lonely voice in the intelligence community.

    Michael Scheuer, the former Central Intelligence Agency specialist on bin Laden and al-Qaeda, has objected to simplistic suggestions by President Bush and others that terrorists are motivated by an ill-defined irrational hatred of the United States. “The politicians really are at great fault for not squaring with the American people,” Scheuer said in a CNN interview. “We’re being attacked for what we do in the Islamic world, not for who we are or what we believe in or how we live. And there’s a huge burden of guilt to be laid at Mr. Bush, Mr. Clinton, both parties for simply lying to the American people.”

    RON PAUL 2008! It’s time to stop being a good republican or democrat and start being a GOOD AMERICAN!

    Comment by Giovanna — May 16, 2007 @ 5:34 pm
  31. Dr. Ron Paul won the debate. Dr. Ron Paul is only real true conservative. He is not fake like
    Giuliani.

    True conservative supports

    1) Small government;; Ron Paul is supports decreasing government like Homeland Security department, IRS, other department; Giuliani on the other hand made New York city government really big

    2) Supports 100% free market;; Ron Paul pro-free market, Giuliani, Mitt Romney and others don’t support free market

    3) No world policing;; Ron Paul is only one that doesn’t want USA to world police the world

    4) Give more rights to the people and trust the people

    5) No welfare and more jobs;; Ron Paul don’t support giving state aids to other countries, but support giving more private aids to countries

    6) Lower taxes;; Ron Paul wants to get rid of the IRS

    Comment by winter32842 — May 16, 2007 @ 5:51 pm
  32. To me, why is the media and Giuliani so stupid to think that that’s what he meant from it? It’s agrivating but Paul will set them straight.

  35. Shift the entire war effort to a single front- afghanistan. The muslim zealots will follow. Let iraq have the civil war Bush 1 hoped for to sort things out. Set up a stronger diplomatic channels with mideast to get them to own the Iraq problem. Provide aid to Iraq war refugees through those channels if requested. Abandon the “America knows best for everyone, benovelent imperialism” coupled with the “boogie man fears of the pending islamo-fascist blitzkrieg.” Get some integrity, find some traction and start winning this thing. Dr. Paul could do it.

    Comment by bruce hoby — May 16, 2007 @ 10:23 pm
  36. Yes, it is true that Ron Paul is the last chance we have to save this country through the political system. If Ron Paul, or his friend Tom Tancredo, is not elected president in 2008 the Establishment will have U.S. submerged in the North American Union before we can vote again. But it will be too late because that election will be for president of North America.

    Comment by americanism — May 16, 2007 @ 10:35 pm
  37. I support Dr. Ron Paul 100%…

    He needs not only our verbal support but he needs donations to fight and keep his message moving ahead. I just found a new article that stated they were going to try to keep him from all future debates.

    I pray for his strength and family and out nation.

    WIthout a doubt the elite are afraid of postive showing… I would suggest he call Rudy out and debate him 1:1.

    In fact why don’t we all begin to post a requst for Rudy to debate Paul 1:1.

    Comment by Darel — May 16, 2007 @ 10:50 pm
  38. Only a whacko like Giuliani, and his ilk, could possibly consider his ignorant, misinformed interruption a “win.”

    “I don’t think I’ve ever heard that before.”

    Really?

    Was that to mean Fruity Rudy doesn’t THINK? Because he’s fully aware of the concept that provoking someone could possibly elicit a repsonse. A three year-old understands that simple cause and effect.

    If RuGu (pronounced “roo joo”) can’t comprehend simple human nature, he shouldn’t even be president of the glee club, let alone the U.S. of A.

  39. Ron Paul is the best presidential candidate by far – Republican or Democrat. People like Gunner are so scared of him that the best criticism they can come up with is to call him a “quack”. Ron Paul for president!

  41. Its no mystery – Giuliani’s firm represents the Parent Company of FOX NEWS. Yep. Bet they won’t be emphasizing that fact in their coverage of Giuliani’s debate behavior. Look it up. “Fair and Balanced”. Fact is, its not just FOX, all the major media outlets are bought and paid for.

    On another note- that Giuliani could be the frontrunner, after exhibiting that he has no familiarity with basic facts laid out in the 9-11 commission report, is frightening, and portends just how far into the Orwelian rabbit hole we’ve fallen.

    Comment by Miami Voter — May 18, 2007 @ 5:06 pm
  42. it’s funny how people like gunnar make the case about how we should get involved constantly in foreign affairs to prevent ‘ an attack on the homeland ‘ and use ww2 ( a declared war ) as an example. tell me something gunnar why is it this whole time we have been fighting this ‘ war on terror ‘ overseas we have left our borders wide open and letting people cross in by the millions? over 6 million people came across since bush has been in office and these clowns still have the nerve to make the claim they are defending the country? I think it’s very dishonest to constantly play on peoples patriotism and and constantly parrot an undecalred war in iraq while ignoring the borders and encouraging illegal entrance.
    that’s being irresponsible it’s as simple as that.

    if this administration and all the other neo-cons like rudy think national defense is so importance in this ‘age of terror’ then why have we not guarded our borders 100 % and made them secure? how can we fight a war on terror with wide open borders? the talking points are getting old, washington has sold this country out and the undeclared war in iraq is a distraction to whats really going on behind the scenes in our own homeland. americans need to wake up.

    and for all those drones saying paul is a 9/11 truther all he said was he wants a non government investigation done by a private party. paul does not trust the government to investigate themselves.

    the sooner people stop drinking fox koolaid and other corrupt media outlets the better.

    Comment by ape — May 24, 2007 @ 11:43 am
  43. on another note rudy is a globalist just like bush. his law firm has a stake in the north american union and IMO thats a conflict of interest since he is running for president.

    according to the texas department of transportation guilianis houston based law firm ‘ bracewell & guiliani ‘ represents cintra concesiones which is a spanish megacorporation that joined with zachary construction on the trans texas corridor. this means he has a stake in this backdoor plan the elites are trying to pull on us. whats funny is he is the media darling and the elites darling. fox news is constantly propping him up and this should be very alarming how non of this is reported.

    Comment by ape — May 24, 2007 @ 11:53 am
  44. >> why is it this whole time we have been fighting this ‘ war on terror ‘ overseas we have left our borders wide open and letting people cross in by the millions?

    You’re right, this is a huge failure of the govt. It’s partly congress, both parties, who have not dealt with this issue, did amnesty before, and only gave him the border fence law a short while ago. It’s partly Bush, who is soo wrong in his view that we shouldn’t or can’t deport the illegals. It’s also Bush’s fault that we have only built 10 miles of fence. If they really wanted to, they could build it quickly.

    Forget the 1000 pages, the real solution is simple: 1) finish fence by summer’s end 2) Announce that whoever comes forward now will be given amnesty for the immigration violations only, and returned, along with their family, to their country of origin, with $1000 each. 12 billion isn’t much in the whole scheme of things. Each person will be biometrically identified, and will never be allowed to return. 3) Whoever is found after the deadline will be subject to 1 year in jail.
