On my local am station after Coast 2 Coast, the show "First Light with Dirk Van" comes on, 4-5am here. I am not a fan of the show, and do not listen to it much. A guy named Bart was filling in for Dirk Van today. It's an NBC radio show, so mainstream media at its best.

They ran some pre-made coverage of the republican debate, focusing on everything but Ron Paul. He was not even mentioned. I immediately picked up on that. Bilderberg pick Rick Perry was talked about more than enough. Part way through the show, the fill in host asks to take calls. He talks a little bit about the debate and mentions Ron Paul, the tea party, etc. His first caller was some fellow from Nashville I believe. He made some great points about the NWO, Ron Paul, The banker fiasco, and such. The host let him talk for some time, which seemed like more time than normal. There was a commercial break, and when they came back, a pre recorded interview with Dirk Van and some woman. No more calls, and the show ended.

This just seems that it was cut short, due to the length of the call and going against the grain of NBC and the NWO.

Anybody else catch this? I wonder if it's recorded online somewhere...

First post, do what you will with it.

Ron Paul didn't get much screen time at the debate, either (more than Santorum or Gingrich, though)

The points he managed to squeeze in were mostly stuff you can hear, cheaper, from any democrat (he was wearing his anti-war underwear tonight) so he probably went way outside any interest from republicans...

And I know we on the left don't really give a damn whether you nominate Moe, Curly, or Larry, they're all stooges being set up for an amusing pratfall.

"And I know we on the left"

What a terrible place that must be.

The first problem you have is classifying yourself as being "on the left". Reality is there is no "left" and there is no "right". There is just common sense and understanding that makes the world go round.

It is much like that scene in the movie "The Matrix".... "There is no spoon".

Business as usual for the establishment. During the 2008 primaries, they demonized and censored him. However, soon after the primaries ended, they seemed to embrace him and gave him quite a bit of media attention in the form of interviews. Demonizing him didnt work. Maybe they thought he would "hang himself" vis his non-establishment ideals.

Unfortunately for the establishment, the more people who hear Ron Paul, the larger his following becomes. People are tired of these endless wars. They appreciate a message of liberty and freedom. They want someone who opposes the TSA. They have come to understand the importance of sound money. Ron Paul has single handedly educated an entire generation on the evils of money printing, debt and the hidden tax on the middle class known as inflation.

What the establishment fails to realize is that the more they play these games, the more emboldened Ron Paul supporters become.

I know! We lack the flickering, comforting drone of Fox news swaddling us in propaganda. We lack the hyper-alertness brought on by constant fear of brown people and heathens. And we don't get the amazing sexual fantasies about gay people shoving things down our throats. Our candidates are all brains and little looks, and we have to consider the prospects of our own offspring. Truly, it's a terrible, frightening life. Did you know we don't punch women in the face when they speak, and men can't demand absolute authority over their uteruses? It's totally backwards. Hell, we even try to feed poor people!

Pity us.

I'm happy for you. I bet you keep the drug reps happy at your doctor's office and pharmacy. Liberals are the problem, and you sound like a liberal. But your probably some disinfo clown sitting in a cubicle, trolling. Go drink your kool-aid, fluoride, and save the planet. Don't forget to get your flu shot.

Actually, friend, idiots are the problem, and you sound as if you listen to a lot of them.

Would a cupcake help?

I dunno, you're the one listening to them. Someone's pouring that stuff into your head. And despite my big government satellite dishes and surveillance equipment, I'm not certain who all is telling you we leftists are miserable objects of pity. You tell me


Now, back to the point of this thread. Ron Paul didn't offer a lot of "meat and potatoes" stuff for the target audience - i.e., "average Joe republican." he spent most of his time in the debate criticizing the wars in the middle east. Which is good on him, he makes some strong points in that regard... buuuuuut... that's not stuff that fires the engines of most of the Republican voters i have ever spoken with. Which may be a reason for his lack of coverage. Pair that up with the fact he didn't score any points against the competition when talking of fiscal matters (they all said the exact same things, across the board) and you kind of have a weak showing as far as the average Republican can be considered.

And he's not getting much coverage from our side of things because, frankly, we just don't care. All the Republican candidates are just a can of fava beans short of Hannibal Lector, so, it's a moot point from this perspective.

Yep. Instead, the Left have the cult of the Victim. They have an insistence on giving political correctness a higher priority than sanity. They have an inbuilt paranoia and terror, more than anything else, of potentially offending anyone.

The one thing that the Left need the state to do for them, more than anything else, is help the victims. The poor, eternally suffering victims. Won't someone please, please spare a thought for the victims?

And of course, in the Left's mind, there's really no such thing as a non-victim. We're all victims, in one way or another. If you got a papercut while opening your mail this morning; guess what? Congratulations! You're now a member of that exalted group, the victims.

So as a result, we have Islam engaged in a slow, creeping, Borg-esque takeover of society by attrition and political correctness, and no one must dare say anything about it, because (*gasp*) we might offend them! We have the homosexual population getting preferential treatment from the legal system, while the rest of us become second class citizens. We have the state gradually destroying the previous freedom of the Internet, in the name of combatting child pornography. (The children are probably the single most revered group of victims, after all) We have that social monument to rampant schizophrenia, PETA, releasing their own brand of torture porn, and trying to force the rest of us to willingly compromise our own health, in order to prevent animals from becoming victims.

Worst of all, we have civil liberties across the board being destroyed and removed by governments, in order to supposedly protect us from becoming the victims of that greatest threat of all, terrorism.

But hey; it's all good. We're still doing the most important thing, and that's really all that counts.

We're still looking after the victims.

Happy to report that at least Drudge has his name on the page and the linked article is fair.
caucuses.desmoinesregister.com...

No mention Dr. Paul winning the Fox poll though. Although unscientific, I suspect if an establishment candidate had won there would have been. I am wishing him all the best in this Saturday's Iowa Straw poll.

I'll be listening to the pundants today. I've adopted my local afternoon radio host and on a continuing basis gently provide them with info on Dr. Paul's statements, positions and record.

When I started, they barely mentioned him and when they did they sounded like a Fox correspondent. I'm happy to report that now, they mention him far more and are vastly more accurate when discssing his positions.

I'll keep saying it as long as it needs to be said...

If you find yourself pointing fingers at 'the right', 'the left', 'liberals', 'conservatives', 'Republicans', 'Democrats', etc. YOU are the problem. Until We The People can collectively realize that it's Them v. Us WE are going to lose. And those of you deluded enough to believe that 'your party' or 'your guy' is gonna change/fix things. Or that they are somehow 'better' than the 'other team'. Or that they give a rat's gluteus about anyone besides their corporate handlers, benefactors and themselves... well, YOU are the ones perpetuating this screw-job.

Please, for once and for all, get it through your pointy litte tinfoil wrapped heads, BOTH sides are the same frigging team with slightly different branding. They ALL work for the same people, they ALL take money from the same people and they ALL could care less what happens to the rest of us. That, my dear deluded firends, is the truth. Bank on it. Listen to the people in the coutries already in the streets. They're all saying the same thing: the elite are getting away with everything and accountable for nothing, robbing their respective countries and destroying the common man. Get a clue before it's too late for all of us.

It's them v. us. Get it? THEM v. us. This political bickering is EXACTLY what they want. While we argue with one another it's business-as-usual for them. Break the cycle. For all our sakes.

I belong to the US party. Their all criminals, but I believe Ron Paul is our ONLY hope.

US vs them.

Any one else and nothing will ever change. This is why they fear him and US.

It would be better if he was an Independent, but he is a man of principal and has been fighting "Them" since he was elected.

I would beg to differ. Both sides have only provided anti-war sentiments as lip service only. Like "yeah it sucks but we still need it". Ron Paul's the only one who's been that vocal about a no compromise draw down of all troops including all foreign bases.

Closest ones to say that are the Green Party. Republicans and Democrats both rely on war profiteering too much to promise anything other than frowning at drone murders and civilians shot from choppers.

Awww, I'm sorry

You should be used to it by now...
Just keep bugging everybody as to how he's the only REAL candidate and that any opinion that differs from yours is not only wrong but retarded and I'm sure that will change their minds.

There are statist leftist and there are libertarian leftists.
I'm a libertarian leftist. Yes, there IS a left and a right. That's reality.
That Obama is left and Bush is right - that's where reality breaks down.

RP can pull the left libertarians. I know he can. He might have trouble with the right AUTHORITARIAN STATISTS though. Like the ones at Fox.

I personally think it is sick too see the msm showing edited clips of Ron that don't really show his actual stances on various political questions. If the MSM actually gave a FAIR reporting of all the actual candidates the general public would actually be able to make an informed decision. Instead we get a few seconds of actual debate between a few unknowns, a question about submissiveness to their partner, and then like 5 min of Palin who wasn't even in the debate at the state fair. WTF?!?!?! NO the media isn't trying to push in any direction. Really?? How is it that Someone who is not even in the debate gets more air time in a story about the debate??? This isn't just fox, its all of them from what I see. CNN, MSNBC, FOX, CNBC, ABC, ETC

I sure I am glad that My mom raised be to think for myself rather than rely on the Boob Tube to do the thinking for me. And I really hope that the American People wake up and take the county back.
