BIAS AGAINST RON PAUL
CNBC PROVES THE REALITY
Immediately after the
most recent Republican debate CNBC ran an online poll for all the candidates. Ron
Pauls support so overwhelmed the others that CNBC quickly took down the poll. MSNBC
was doing a similar poll and the Ron Paul
landslide results were essentially the same.
The Internet was a buzz over the Main
Stream Media bias against Ron Paul. As further evidence of that bias, Congressman Paul was
asked the least number of questions and received the least air time minutes during the
debate. A tabulation of these results can be found here.
When Giuliani and Thompson get 18 questions and 14+ minutes and Ron Paul gets 5 questions
and less than 6 minutes, then it can be concluded that the fix was in. Chris Matthews of
MSNBC, Maria Bartiromo of CNBC, John Harwood of CNBC and Gerald Seib of the Wall Street
Journal, as moderators and questioners, wear this open prejudice as much as the networks.
CNBCs embarrassment for pulling
the poll was so overwhelmingly that a network big cheese tried to splain his actions
in a piece titled An Open Letter to the Ron Paul Faithful. Click here to read it.
You will find a vacuous justification of why curtailing free expression and
short-circuiting participation in the political process is supposedly a good thing.
The following is a challenge letter
sent to CNBC and its managing editor, Allen Wastler, at this email address - firstname.lastname@example.org - that was listed at the end of his letter.
Thank you for a brief flash
of accountability in posting the letter titled "An Open Letter to the Ron Paul
Faithful". Your acknowledging the removal of the debate poll, because Ron Paul was
trouncing everyone else, is noteworthy. However, your letter defines prejudice, negative
bias and hypocrisy. The function of the news media in America is not one
The Main Stream Media and all politicians regularly exhort the populace to get involved,
register to vote, become part of the solution, express your views in the process and be
active. These days are different than the early 1990s and before. The Internet is
about as ubiquitous as the phone but with a greater capacity for feed back from the
people. You asked the viewers to communicate their responses/views about the debate and
you got it. The Internet worked, even if the result was not what you and The Powers That
Be at CNBC wanted.
Your letter whimpers about
the Ron Paul supporters overwhelming the poll results. Were the McCainiacs, Thompsonians,
Giulianites, Huckabeeans, Brownbackers or other supporters precluded, blocked or inhibited
in anyway from voting? No.
So instead of commenting on the lifeless ineptitude of the supporters for the vaunted
mainstream candidates, you decided to shut down the option of open participation for all.
Why? Because Ron Paul is a real threat of awakening the American people to the reality of
the socialist/communist political establishment that is consuming America and of which you
are an integral part.
... why don't you Scroogle "US Constitution",
open the first web page listed from Cornell University Law School and click on Article 1. Then scroll down to Section 8,
Paragraph 11 and read about the war powers of Congress. Never mind, the heavy lifting has
been done for you.
To declare war, grant letters of marque and reprisal, and make
rules concerning captures on land and water;
Only Congress has the right
and power to declare war. It does not have the authority to cede its decision making power
for declaring war. Correspondingly, the President has no Constitutional authority to take
the nation to war only to execute what the Congress decides. To read the limited scope of
the Presidents powers click here.
cannot transfer the war-making powers to the President neither can an Executive Order.
Congressional resolutions like the one passed before the current Iraq War did not modify
the Constitution. In order for the President to lawfully initiate a war the Constitution
would have to be modified under Article V, which has not happened. The criteria for a
valid Article V modification of the Constitution can be read here.
Since you are likely reading
the Constitution for the first time, if you go just past Article 1, Section 8 there is a
news scoop for you and your network. Read Article 1 Section 9, Paragraph 2 where it states
No bill of attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed.
Currently GWBush is demanding
Congress to immunize retroactively (retroactive means ex post facto) Internet
communication firms for their participation in his criminal, warrantless wiretaps of
American citizens. Quoting from the New York Times on October
President Bush said that he will not sign the bill if it does
not give retroactive immunity to U.S. telecommunications companies that helped conduct electronic
surveillance without court orders.
statements are prima facie admissions of having criminally violated Amendment
IV and the US Code as a Conspiracy
Against Rights and Deprivation
of Rights Under Color of Law.
For either the President or
members of Congress to suggest an ex post facto law to be passed is a form of treason
defined as either Rebellion/Insurrection in the US
Code Title 18, Part 1, Chapter 15, Section 2383, where it reads:
Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any
rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws
thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or
imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office
under the United States.
Or qualifying as Seditious
Conspiracy under US
Code Title 18, Part 1, Chapter 15, Section 2384,
If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any
place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down,
or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them,
or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or
delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take,
or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall
each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.
America and establish global socialism, which is anathema to the
individual rights of the American citizen enumerated (not granted) in the Constitution.
If you have any brains, guts
or conscience, then you will instruct one of your talking-head newsreaders to deliver a
brief Public Service Announcement. That PSA would inform the public of their Congressional
and Executive leadership again doing criminal violence to the rule of law.
But if you were to perform this requisite function as a member of the Fourth Estate, it
would upset the fascist corporate interests that run/own your network. The same Fabian Socialist Financiers who
seek to bury a sovereign
The Constitution, that Ron
Paul upholds and defends unlike any other Republican or Democratic presidential candidate,
defines a little "r" republic and NOT a democracy. A
democracy is the tyranny of the majority and a pernicious form of socialism. A republic is
based on the unalienable rights and inherent freedoms of the individual, which are not
privileges licensed by the government. Republics and Democracies are not the same. They
are political enemies. The Framers of the Constitution knew that explicitly and wrote
So the gauntlet concerning your undeniable bias against Ron Paul and the foundational
truths of the Constitution has been delivered and is lying at your feet.
Will you answer this challenge in substance or slither away in silence?
One more question
light of the ruling
generals in Myanmar recently unplugging the Internet to suppress news of those freedom
demonstrations, does CNBC do public relations and political consulting for that military
