You know, the more they "cut people off" and are so obvious with "their ways", the more powerful Ron Paul and his support will become.

Its actually a good thing that they are showing their colors for all to see.

this is blatent enought to ensure that if enough people see it they will start to question the timing of the CUT OUT
this brave soilder has served and therfore can speek from personal experience about what is ACUALLY going on

the soilders are sent to war and when they have a chance to speak on live tv they are cut off.
this is one of the most disrespectful acts i can think of when CCN is PROMOTING a war with this soilders and other soilders lives,

and at the same time cuting off his opinion and not following up at all.

this is something that needs to be seeded every where,

this disrespected soilder is now the center of an issuie where those sent to serve and die for a nation are disrespected by the media that hypes for war in the first place.

you can say coincedence all you want,
this story needs a proper responce from CNN and to aplogise for their unpatriotic behaviour.

the soilder has serverd for his country,
if CNN lost one of the candidates mid sentence,
they would CUT BACK after transmittion resumed.

CNN have just shown the world they dont respect americans who serve their country.

i will post this video far and wide and i suggest all do the same.

That soldier is in for a serious reaming from his commanding officer. If that so called glitch had not occurred, I guarantee you that the DOD would have been all over CNN's behind to.

Anyone who has served in the Military knows what I am talking about too. It sucks to be that brave soldier right now. He started to get it out there though. That's something.

imo, not just the fact that it was tatted on the dudes neck but the added audible keywords of "9/11" "remember" and "twin towers" in addition to what you said make this especially damaging to them and their agenda. they have put soo much work and time over the last decade into makeing those words ("9/11" "remember" especially) and others like it so emotionally resonant/chained to certain feelings and beliefs when there mentioned(understand me?its late).. a "weapon so to speak" which they just let, until they realized, be used against them seemingly inadvertently... then with the mention of "iran" and "Israel"

i gues my point is if u havent gotten it lol is that ppl would actually hear that, and it wouldnt just fly in one ear and out the other.. so.. i call BULLSH1T.. it was intentional

i hope im making sense, but on a side note
first post been coming here few years been close a couple times but this one finally made we join.. had to add this cause i feel some of yall not catchin how significant this is.

Someone on youtube was claiming they let the soldier speak later, true or false?

Shameful.

The BS that we're going around the World for "democracy".

We dont have a democracy in this country.

Its a media controlled stage show.

This is Viral , Google search About 29,600,000 results (0.22 seconds) wow !


The people in america now know what CNN did to this solider. This is outrageous to say the least, yet we all know they all do it. Only this time has been proven.

CNN broadcasts from Libya Via Sat on the other side of the globe, it's perfect. but from Iowa on clear night, no rain or anything , yet the picture is lost due to technical problems . I don't buy it one bit. by the way I seen that green streak on the screen. It was an interruption of power, meaning it was turned off not a lost signal. there is a difference and that is what you seen when a signal generator is turned off.

Go Army guy.

Go Ron Paul.

The Ron Paul campaign brought him on stage. CNN cut him off prior to the voting to ensure that he didnt sway anyone. They'll give you all the coverage in the World after the fact.

Starts at 9:38. Much respect, poor guy was overwhelmed.

Didn't something similar happen to Charlie Sheen with 2 and a half men?


You would think he was streaking but naked and the FCC went in to damage control mode as fast as they shut him down. I can imagine some elitist in the control booth screaming "PULL THE PLUG" in a rage heck they must have some kind of software that recognizes certain words just like homeland security uses with monitoring terrorist"chatter" in phone lines. But the words mentioned "Israel + 911" combined must have tripped a overload somewhere. They have safe guards that ensure that thought provoking ideas and logical questions are neutralized. Keeping the masses in a coma like state is serious business with these monsters.

I agree, it looks like this guy was intentionally cut off. However, if he is active-dtuy military -- and I haven't seen anything regarding this, one way or the other -- CNN might have been doing him a favor. It is against US Military rules for an active-duty service member to promote a candidate, when said military member is in uniform.

Here is a link to the US military uniform code:

www.dtic.mil...


Here is a link to an article about this issue and this particular incident:

www.huffingtonpost.com...

I know of instances in which retired/ex-service men who have worn their uniforms while engaged in political activity. The question is whether he is active duty or not; if he is, then what he did is a no-no.

FTR, I am no defender of the lamestream news media, and am well aware that what is broadcast is highly filtered and biased in favor of The Establishment. Just want to point out facts pertinent to this specific incident. If someone else wants to contribute to this thread, then I hope he/she can let us know if this fellow, Jesse Thorsen, is activie duty or not. Otherwise, all posts blah-blah-blahhing on about corporate media conspiracies, are doing nothing more than blowing hot air, i.e. contributing NOTHING more to this discussion,

He was not promoting him. he was questioned by the media. Also Ron Paul invited him to the podium,big difference than what the ucmj states. I know because I was commanding officer, not to long ago.

This soldier will not get into any trouble. in short this soldier would have to be in official authority according to the UCMJ. . This soldier is clearly not in official authority, i.e. he was asked by the media, and invited by RP. It is frowned upon if you are wearing the uniform, but again CNN was questioning the soldier. Yes, I'm sure he is active duty. he might get chewed out., then get a hand shake form his commander if RP a supporter.

please don't confuse official authority in civilian terms, it's an entirely different definition by the military ucmj regarding endorsement of political candidates. This soldier does not meet that definition.

Let me quote DoD Directive 1344.10 (Political Activities by Members of the Armed Forces):

"4.1.2. A member of the Armed Forces on active duty shall not:

4.1.2.5. Speak before a partisan political gathering, including any gathering that promotes a partisan political party, candidate, or cause.

4.1.2.6. Participate in any radio, television, or other program or group discussion as an advocate for or against a partisan political party, candidate, or cause."

This purdee much contradicts what you say; 4.1.2.6 applies to Thorsen's CNN interview, and 4.1.2.5 applies to when he went up on stage with Ron Paul. It's quite clear cut. In addition, some other poster earlier in this thread, also evidently well-versed with military protocol, said what this guy did was a big unh-unh-unh. By saying, on camera, that he is for, or voting for, Paul he is de facto promoting/supporting Paul. By saying that Israel can defend itself, he is also supporting the political idea that the US doesn't have to protect Israel against Iran. To claim that he is not promoting/supporting Paul and the policy of decoupling the US from defending Israel against Iran, is disingenuous. That he is being interviewed and asked questions by a reporter makes no difference; he volunteered the answers, and furthermore the reporter didn't even ask him how he felt about US policies regarding Israel and Iran. If one says oneself is for a particular candidate or against a particular policy, one is, indeed, advocating for that person or issue. There's no wiggle room here.

To be clear: I'm not hostile to these notions he expressed, either; however, his actions do contravene this military code if he is, indeed, active duty and said such things while in uniform. Again, however, I acknowledge that this is only true if Thorsen is active duty -- which I, for one, don't know, from the news reports I've seen/read.

This military document I refer to doesn't say what the punishment is for breaking these rules. Perhaps, as you say, he'll just get chewed out by his CO or sergeant, but it seems like worse disciplinary action is possible. None the less, CNN's reasons for interrupting this interview, could have been, in part, for this guy's protection. I'm certainly not claiming that it also wasn't done for news filtering reasons.

Technical glitch at just the right the time it seems...

You can see those video view counts/likes on YouTube have been tampered with as well.


Why are they going so out of their way to downplay support for Ron Paul?

Rand and Ron are not the same.

Rand is closer to Romney and other repubs than his own fater.
