Massive March On The White House By Active Duty Military & Veterans For Ron Paul

Massive March On The White House By Active Duty Military & Veterans For Ron Paul

Author: Asshole Blogger

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- On President's Day, Monday, February 20, there was a massive march on the White House by active duty military & veterans to show their support for Ron Paul, however, perhaps you haven't heard of it, that's because mainstream media intentionally ignored it, clearly showing their bias.

Veterans for Ron Paul: March on the White House.

Veterans for Ron Paul is a grass roots organization of US veterans and active military personnel who support Ron Paul as the next president of the United States, who started their march at the Washington Monument onward to the White House in a military march formation, rotating cadence calls of "President Paul" and "End the Fed".  Arriving at the White House, with an “about face,” veterans and active duty service members turned their backs to the White House and sent a message to the President, Ron Paul is the choice of the troops.

Organizer Adam Kokesh, an Iraq War veteran, bellowed that each second of quiet was for every military suicide since President Obama took office. After eight minutes of saluting, they observed a 21-minute silent prayer, one second for every service member who died abroad during President Obama’s term.

Adam Kokesh said he believes the message sent by the “about face” is anything but unpatriotic. “It’s not about the office, it’s not about the building, it’s not about the White House,” he said. “It is a symbolic repudiation of Barack Obama’s foreign policy.”

One of the marchers held a sign reading “Don’t let anybody make you think that God chose America to be a policeman of the whole world.” The line was paraphrased from remarks by Dr. Martin Luther King regarding the Vietnam War.

The march concluded with Adam Kokesh parading the procession away, complete with color guard, away from the White House, ending with a running charge towards the Washington Monument..

As a former Air Force flight surgeon, Ron Paul is the only former serviceman campaigning for president, therefore, the only one qualified to serve as Commander in Chief of the United States Armed Forces.  Organizer Adam Kokesh says "“It seems very clear to me that those of us who are willing to put our lives on the line to defend this country want a commander in chief who is going to be decisive, who’s going to put America’s security interests first, and who’s only going to send us into harms way with a clear mission,” he said, “Ron Paul is the only candidate that comes close to measuring up to that standard.”

Ron Paul has more support and donors from active duty military and veterans than any other candidate.

Were the 2012 New Hampshire Primary Election Results Rigged

Were the 2012 New Hampshire Primary Election Results Rigged


I intended on writing this blog post several hours ago, but, due to an overwhelming need to sleep due to over extending myself and being exhausted, I ended up sleeping throughout the day.  At the time of writing this, polls are in the process of closing in New Hampshire and the results are beginning to be reported.   It will be very interesting to see the final outcome and what is said, particularly since Associated Press was allegedly reporting the results on Google at 3am Pacific time, at least an hour before the voting polls even opened in New Hampshire.   Google allegedly showed the results with AP listed as the source and no explanation has been given by either Google nor Associated Press to the Twitter user who Tweeted asking for an explanation. on why they were publishing results before polling even took place, and several people have claimed to have seen these same results on Google, allegedly catching AP and Google red handed for publishing predetermined NH primary election results.  The question remains, that if this is true, who predetermined these results.  Below are claimed to be screencaps of the results published that show Newt Gingrich as the winner of the NH primary, followed by Rick Santorum in 2nd, and Ron Paul in 3rd.

Associated Press reported these results at 3am Pacific Time on 01/10/2012

Imagine Foreign Military Troops on US Soil

  There are far too many American's whom falsely believe that Ron Paul is an isolationist, due to his foreign policy positions and ideas.  One of the problems America has is that there are 900 military bases in 130 countries and the US military is overextended. As a consequence to this occupation of other nations, America has experienced "blowback" in the form of terrorism. Unconstitutional and illegal wars as well as global policing are bankrupting the U.S., and is weakening our national defense.  One of Ron Paul's solutions is to stop spending to police the world, and start properly defending our own border.

NOTE: It is important to separate hunting down terrorists who attack our country and deserve justice (which Ron Paul is 100% for), and not confuse justice with occupying entire countries for a decade under the guise of the "War on Terror" or "Spreading Democracy". Terrorists are individuals and small groups, so why are we picking fights with entire nations? BILLIONS for Defense, NOT A PENNY for Empire.

This speech is called "Imagine" and it was given by Ron Paul on March 11, 2009. The original text of the talk is below:

Imagine for a moment that somewhere in the middle of Texas there was a large foreign military base, say Chinese or Russian. Imagine that thousands of armed foreign troops were constantly patrolling American streets in military vehicles. Imagine they were here under the auspices of "keeping us safe" or "promoting democracy" or "protecting their strategic interests."

Imagine that they operated outside of US law, and that the Constitution did not apply to them. Imagine that every now and then they made mistakes or acted on bad information and accidentally killed or terrorized innocent Americans, including women and children, most of the time with little to no repercussions or consequences. Imagine that they set up checkpoints on our soil and routinely searched and ransacked entire neighborhoods of homes. Imagine if Americans were fearful of these foreign troops, and overwhelmingly thought America would be better off without their presence.

Imagine if some Americans were so angry about them being in Texas that they actually joined together to fight them off, in defense of our soil and sovereignty, because leadership in government refused or were unable to do so. Imagine that those Americans were labeled terrorists or insurgents for their defensive actions, and routinely killed, or captured and tortured by the foreign troops on our land. Imagine that the occupiers' attitude was that if they just killed enough Americans, the resistance would stop, but instead, for every American killed, ten more would take up arms against them, resulting in perpetual bloodshed. Imagine if most of the citizens of the foreign land also wanted these troops to return home. Imagine if they elected a leader who promised to bring them home and put an end to this horror.

Imagine if that leader changed his mind once he took office.

The reality is that our military presence on foreign soil is as offensive to the people that live there as armed Chinese troops would be if they were stationed in Texas. We would not stand for it here, but we have had a globe-straddling empire and a very intrusive foreign policy for decades that incites a lot of hatred and resentment towards us.

According to our own CIA, our meddling in the Middle East was the prime motivation for the horrific attacks on 9/11. But instead of re-evaluating our foreign policy, we have simply escalated it. We had a right to go after those responsible for 9/11, to be sure, but why do so many Americans feel as if we have a right to a military presence in some 160 countries when we wouldn't stand for even one foreign base on our soil, for any reason? These are not embassies, mind you, these are military installations. The new administration is not materially changing anything about this. Shuffling troops around and playing with semantics does not accomplish the goals of the American people, who simply want our men and women to come home. 50,000 troops left behind in Iraq is not conducive to peace any more than 50,000 Russian soldiers would be in the United States.

Shutting down military bases and ceasing to deal with other nations with threats and violence is not isolationism. It is the opposite. Opening ourselves up to friendship, honest trade and diplomacy is the foreign policy of peace and prosperity. It is the only foreign policy that will not bankrupt us in short order, as our current actions most definitely will. I share the disappointment of the American people in the foreign policy rhetoric coming from the administration. The sad thing is, our foreign policy WILL change eventually, as Rome's did, when all budgetary and monetary tricks to fund it are exhausted.

Ron Paul and the Real Tea Party

Ron Paul and the Real Tea Party


by Scott Ledd


Have you ever wondered how the Tea Party was actually born? Was it a secret plot by GOP strategists? A movement designed and orchestrated by the Koch brothers? The brainchild of Karl Rove? WRONG. The origins of the modern Tea Party (before being co-opted by the Establishment) came out of the 2007 presidential campaign of RON PAUL.

When the Tea Party emerged onto the political scene and played a major role in the 2010 election cycle, many people came to believe (erroneously) that the Tea Party was some sort of radical Republican ploy to energize their base and consolidate power. Nothing could be further from the truth. While it is certainly correct that the Establishment Right moved quickly to co-opt this unabashedly populist, independent movement (in the same way that the Establishment Left has moved swiftly to co-opt the originally populist Occupy Wall Street movement), the real truth of how and why the REAL Tea Party was formed has been suppressed...

The TRUTH of the matter is that it was the Anti-Establishment Ron Paul and his supporters who spawned the REAL modern Tea Party on December 16, 2007, on the anniversary of the original Boston Tea Party. Just as the colonists cast the tea into Boston Harbor as a powerful protest against an imperial government that had overstepped its bounds, so too did Ron Paul's supporters reenact that fateful act, but with a modern twist: they also cast out their money into Ron Paul's campaign coffers, raising over $6 Million in just that one single day. The message could not have been any clearer: the People have suffered enough abuse of their inalienable Rights, and they will not stand for more.

And what are just some of the most GLARING abuses of the People's Rights?

--Our 4th Amendment Rights of privacy and against unwarranted searches and seizures have been eviscerated by the PATRIOT ACT

--Our 5th Amendments Rights of due process of law have been gutted with provisions in legislation and via executive order for indefinite detention of American citizens without trial

--Our 10th Amendment Rights have been shredded by agencies such as the TSA, a federal police force now expanding out of the airports and onto local streets

--Our endless, undeclared wars have reduced our national security while completely bankrupting us

--Our money has been destroyed through inflation, due to the private central banking cartel known as the Federal Reserve

--And the list goes on and on....

Flash forward to 2011 and December 16 looms large again. Will you help the REAL Tea Party of Ron Paul reestablish itself as the non-partisan group whose only purpose is the rebirth of Liberty and the restoration of our Republic? Please watch the video linked to in this article-tweet it, post it to facebook, email it out to all you know-and pledge to help Ron Paul and the Real Tea Party RESTORE AMERICA NOW.
