As some of you may have noticed, Ron Paul was being blamed for an anti-Huntsman ad recently and the media wouldn't let this one go. It seems though
that the truth finally came out, and I thought people should see it:
YouTube stats show that Huntsman’s official website was the first website to post the ridiculous, anonymously created “China Jon” video
immediately after it was uploaded, yet Huntsman and the corporate media blame Ron Paul supporters for its creation and call on Paul himself to disown
it. Meanwhile, Huntman uses it as a means to play the victim and paint himself as a cosmopolitan hero, with full media cooperation. TheEndRun.com
January 6, 2012 If you thought it would be impossible for Jon Huntsman and the Establishment media to stoop any lower than they already have in their
attempts to marginalize and discredit Ron Paul, you thought wrong.
I cant believe how stupid these people are. As campaign insiders many of you are aware we created the fake video here
www.youtube.com... and made it look like it came from the ron paul people. This is a suprise it went viral. And the good news
is paul is getting blamed for it. My goodness this is turning out better than expected. I was on the phone today with the campaign and they have
another one coming out monday.
I helped make the video. I almost fell off my chair when i saw it on fox. I even got a call from the big man thanking me personally. This is pauls
weekness. We should ramp this style of attack up. #3 John5 The paul reaction shows how incopmtent they really are. We put them on the defensive with a
video that took 5 minutes to make. These people don't have a hint of street smarts. I agree with you dave, more videos. Have you seen the final for

But it begs the question, how do we know that thread isn't the false flag? The Web site in question is not connected to any political group,
just a free Web forum. The request made in that post "can we move this to the private forum" doesn't make sense, as according to Orinje.com, they only
have 3 types of forums:
Public - open to everyone. There is no restriction on who can join or who can post messages to it
Invite Only - require an invitation to be sent to join them. Invitations can only be sent by the group creator or forum moderators and
administrators. Invitations are sent by clicking 'Pending & Invited Members' at the bottom of the page for that individual group
Moderated - open to everyone to join but messages need to be moderated before they will appear. They are moderated by the group creator and the
site moderators and administrators
There are no "hidden" forums. Which would explain why the post is still available. It really makes me think the post is bogus.
I have no doubt someone OTHER than Ron Paul released the video, and that someone is likely with the Huntsman campaign. But this "slipup" on Orinje.com
is just too obvious a plant.
It could just as easily be a 3rd party trying to create a brouhaha between the Huntsman and Paul camps - let them start slinging mud at each other
while they sit back and reap the benefits. The one candidate we know who has done this in the past has been Perry - leaking the Cain scandal to a
liberal media site - making it appear the "liberal media" was behind it.
I'm certain of two things:
Ron Paul would not ever stoop so low, and was not behind this ad.
The media should never have claimed this was a Ron Paul ad - anyone can upload any bogus trash to youtube and imply so-and-so was behind it. The
biggest failing by the media was to pay any attention to this nonsense.

It is some anonymous poster on a forum claiming

this is a bit crazy grasping at straws.
"Unfortunately for the Huntsman operative who created this campaign, they left a web trail - Google has a "statistics" widget at the bottom right of
the video called "Show Video Statistics" which show that the official Huntsman campaign actually posted the video."
Or did you read the full article? Here's some key points...
"Furthermore, according to the publicly-viewable stats provided by YouTube, the very first place this video was posted was Jon Huntsman’s campaign
website, Jon2012.com. This was done on November 4, the very day the video was uploaded to YouTube, and before the video had received any traffic from
"Furthermore, one of Huntsman’s (biological) daughters – the ones who just days ago he hinted had “plenty up their sleeve” and that “you
might be surprised at what they release in the next few days” – has already gone on national TV denouncing the video as “vile” and promoting
Huntsman as a family man."
"A reader has e-mailed me to point out that the offending “Jon Huntsman’s Values” video was tagged “jon2012girls” by whoever operates the
jon2012girls is the online moniker of Huntsman’s daughters, which they use on YouTube and Twitter. Their Cain “spoof” video carries the same
tag. (Like the info in Update #2, these are just facts – take from them what you will.)"
You make a very good point. This video could have been made by anyone, and so could the forum posts. We have to ask ourselves; who has the most to
gain from this? John Huntsman obviously gained a lot of sympathy for this attack ad and Paul got a lot of bad publicity. I am amazed that any major
news network would give the time of day to such a dumb attack ad unless they stood to gain something from it. It's not well-made, it doesn't say at
the end "I'm Ron Paul and I approve this message"... so why does this poorly-constructed Youtube ad created by some random, insignificant person make
the news??? Why would Huntsman even for a second believe that Ron Paul endorsed this ad when there is no Ron Paul voice-over endorsing the message???
Something stinks to high heaven here. I'd like to say that it was created by some random jokers, but the media attention that this is getting is
completely disproportionate to it's importance.
The same video was also made with Santorum's name at the end. I don't know if one exists with Romney's name in it, but I know those two definitely
P.S. Where the heck did these people dig up home videos of Huntsman with his baby daughter? I guess it isn't impossible that they might be floating
around the internet somewhere, but I find that a little fishy as well.

If the source video of Huntsman's daughters could only come from Huntsman, then it would be mighty incriminating indeed. But the Orinje.com
postings imply it was some group of supporters of Huntsman, and not even well-enough connected to be a part of any official Huntsman Web site -
instead setting up shop on a freebie forum like Orinje. (If you're not familiar with the site, it's like Craigslist clone, with open forums for every
city/region covering all general topics.)
I see both Paul and Huntsman as underdogs in this primary race - and Huntsman is so far down in the polls I don't see him going after anyone but the
leader - Romney. If not Romney, then he'll make his points against Obama so he could finish his campaign and hold his head high among his fellow
GOPpers - and not start some trivial dirty-ad war against another underdog. Paul might be polling better than he usually does, but he's traditionally
been the underdog for several outings now.
A really underhanded tactic would be to sling mud at one candidate and frame another for it. By making Huntsman the victim of the sleazy attack ad,
the resulting sympathy would hardly do his campaign any good (he is at 1%), and consequently not harm any of the front-runners. By framing Paul for
the ad however, it would alleviate the front-runners of his annoying rise in popularity.
Who would gain the most from this? Not Huntsman, even with sympathy, he would hardly bounce more than a few percentage points. What's 5% versus his
current 1%? Running such a negative ad could hardly help Paul, especially such a sleazy one - and this one was purposely made extremely sleazy.
The obvious beneficiaries are the other candidates. Romney, Perry, or Santorum. Of course it could also be some random group who doesn't like Paul's
stance on Israel, the military, govt. spending etc.

This is ridiculous.
Why the hell would the media report on this to begin with?!?!
It's most likely just some randomass teen trolling, thinking he's cool.
Have y'all seen these?

***note- I do freelance video editing/special effects/post-production work, and I am well-versed in many editing programs including imovieHD, Final
Cut Pro, Adobe After Effects, Photoshop, Maya, Cin4D, Blender, and more.***
Both of these vids were uploaded yesterday (Jan. 6th)
And they ARE NOT alternate endings of the same video file. First, there is noticeable decline (lossy) in resolution in these two from the original.
This would result from importing the original back into an editing program and/or converting the format of the original video. Secondly, when you
look at the final slide, it's pretty obvious that they just 'censor-boxed' over the "Vote for Ron Paul" with the alternate text.
See for yourself (I took screenshots of the final slides for each and then compared them side by side- I did not edit the pictures in any way other
than putting the images next to each other and taking a side-by-side screenshot)
Now, it's possible that NH4LibertyPaul didn't save the original project file and had to do this.
If it was this same person that made the second two, what would be his/her motive?
Damage control maybe.
Perhaps it's an experiment to see if there is a disproportionate media bias against Paul- and if so, it will be used to humiliate the MSM and PROVE to
even the most bashful of the sheep how incompetent, ignorant, and biased they are. (I'M REALLYYYY HOPING THIS IS WHAT WILL COME OF ALL THIS-
regardless of whether it was the intention!)
maybe it's just more trolling for 's**ts & giggles'
