Former Reagan official, David Stockman was interviewed on CNBC yesterday and stated that Ron Paul is the only one right about the Fed and the military industrial complex–not Mitt Romney…
Ron Paul is the only one who is right about the Fed, and the Fed is the heart of the problem. They have destroyed the capital markets and the money markets; interest rates mean nothing; everything is trading off the Fed and Wall Street isn’t even home – as it’s now a bunch of computers trading word-clouds emitted by this central banker…The Fed, and the lunatics that run it, are telling the whole world untruths about the cost of money and the price of risk.

Ben Swann Reality Check takes a look at how the most controversial rule change in party history was not legitimately passed.
No matter if you are right, left or capable of critical thinking and not needing a party to tell you where to cast your vote, this should appall everyone. Maybe more will wake up and realize the illusion of choice is just that, an illusion to make you think you still have a voice.
In the state of Nevada, an important showdown is about to occur. Nevada was long ago placed by some pundits solidly in the “win” column for Mitt Romney, but this weekend will likely prove those estimates wrong as Nevada Republicans meet to unanimously send Ron Paul supporters as Nevada’s national delegation to Tampa, Florida.
Realizing that Romney will likely suffer the embarrassment of losing the state with the fourth highest Mormon population in the U.S., a threatening letter was recently sent by the allegedly impartial Republican National Convention in an attempt to save face in Nevada. In it, RNC Chief Counsel John R. Phillippe, Jr., seemed to take sides by threatening all of Nevada’s delegates if Nevada Republicans did not show enough support for Mitt Romney.
The story runs deeper – Nevada’s Republican old guard has spent a considerable effort in keeping Ron Paul’s supporters out of the process.
Presidential historian and Paul campaign spokesman Doug Wead points out that Romney’s campaign has no interest in welcoming Paul to the table: ”Romney Hawks, now in complete control of his campaign are using strong arm tactics to shut out the Ron Paul forces.”
After a very challenging 2008 election, Paul supporters in Nevada worked hard to take over their state party.
A Republican state delegate who identified himself only as “not Romney and not Paul” commented impartially on the Romney vendetta against Paul: “Less motivated Republicans fall by the wayside between elections. Paul supporters came four years ago and stuck around. They won the party by caring more than others.”
He continued, “Some of them came out of vengeance, some of them came out of concern for the future of the country. Either way, I’m happy to have them and just wish the Romney campaign would accept them too. These Romney people aren’t looking at the long game. They are going to ruin our party just to have their man nominated… Paul supporters are the future of this party…either welcome them or destroy our party…looks to me like Romney would rather see our party destroyed… blacks, Hispanics, the young voters, independents, people who never even got involved before… that Paul attracts a big group – the biggest builder of the Party I’ve seen since Reagan.”
The big tent Republican Party that Reagan built is being splintered by a Romney campaign vendetta.
“Romney might win the nomination, but without Paul and his people, he’ll never win the Presidency and has no chance [winning] Congress,” continued the Clark County delegate.
While many pundits have named Romney the nominee, it sounds like Mitt Romney himself does not actually believe he has this wrapped up. A Paul staffer recently pointed out that, ”If Mitt Romney had this thing won, he would be telling his state chairs to make it easy for new people to come into the party. The fact that they are shutting us out is revealing.”
Nevada Republicans and Maine Republicans will meet this weekend to select delegates to the Republican National Convention being held August 27-30 in Tampa, Florida. Contrary to many media estimates, it looks like Paul will come out of both states as the winner.
The time is NOW to take back our personal liberties and freedoms!

I’ll never forget the moment. It was very late on election night in November, 1994, and I was at a friend’s house transfixed by election coverage. The Republicans had done it. Led by Newt Gingrich, the combative Georgia congressman, they had ended decades of Democratic dominance in the House, they were taking the Senate, and Bill Clinton was on the ropes.
Here was the triumph, recorded for posterity on YouTube:
This was the “Republican Revolution,” the moment when the party — demoralized by defeat in 1992 — was reborn, when the grassroots conservative movement cultivated by Ronald Reagan finally achieved Air Force One, ethics, repVictories in Congress would be followed by victory two years later, and Reagan’s vision of a conservative America would finally be realized. It was a great night.
Sadly, it was also our best night. What followed was perhaps the most agonizing slow-motion train wreck of my political life.
Our champion walked into the arena, faced off against Bill Clinton, and was crushed. For those with long political memories, the stories are well-known:
-Gingrich shut down the government partially because he was annoyed at his seating on Air Force One . . . and admitted it to the press.
-He was the first sitting Speaker reprimanded for ethics violations, with the vast majority of Republicans voting against him.

[CIM Comment: "Core issues for a man that as he said doesn't seem to have a core." I think that sums it up best, somebody with no integrity, who's view change daily depending on the wants of the crowd he is speaking to. Bottom line, if you love what Obama has given you but want to prove you are/are not racist then vote for Romney to serve Obama's second term. What is your definition of a shill, mine is Romney. BTW, great video to the folks that put it together. For some of us a fake is obvious but others need it shown side by side, which this video does a very nice job.
