COLLUSION ADMITTED Ron Paul Fingered, Attacking Gingrich & Santorum for Romney
Gulag Bound ^ | February 25, 2012 | Arlen Williams

Posted on 02/25/2012 8:28:26 AM PST by unspun

Weekly calls between the Paul and Romney campaigns

This entire stream, uploaded this Thursday from Mark Levin, is very important, but be sure to catch what he plays at the 7:04 mark. It is from a recent "Morning Joe," telecast.

at YouTube, "Mark Levin Helps the American People more than Ron Paul could ever hope for"
"There is a de facto alliance between Ron Paul and Mitt Romney; there's no question about it. At this point, it's an open partnership, I mean Jesse Benton, Ron Paul's campaign manager, has talked about the extent to which they're cooperating with the Romney campaign. And he said that there are weekly phone calls...."

What is behind this Alinsky-style pattern of attack?

We suggest one possible answer to this riddle is Ron Paul's principle political benefactor, globalist financier and libertarian activist for the homosexual agenda, Peter Thiel [edit: reportedly, at least former steering committee member of the Bilderberger globalist manipulators].

As has been noted:

For more on Thiel, see "Follow Ron Paul’s Money too: Peter Thiel, Globalist, Bilderberger, GOProud Activist." For more on the candidate in question, see the Gulag Bound tag, "Ron Paul."

In therightscoop.com:

Mark Levin: What is Romney promising Ron Paul?

Levin noted last night that Ron Paul is helping Romney by attacking full throttle Santorum like he did Bachmann and Perry, but won’t spend any significant money attacking Romney. So Levin wants to know what Romney is promising Ron Paul in return:

(h/t: Legal Insurrection)
 

Never forget to follow the money.

As is our policy, we repost in entirety, with credit and backlink, when posts are very brief.

If you watched the debate, it wasn’t very subtle. they made no pretense of anything but tag-teaming Santorum.

Because Santorum is the front runner. They left Newt alone because they don’t consider him a threat and because he would throw it back at them more viciously.

What is so sad and disappointing is that Levin and Rush seem to have forgotten his petty snarky BS attacks. I am really stunned by it, and stand by my prediction that those two folks- whom I thank God for often - will very much regret their lack of vetting.

VOTE SANTORUM in Michigan. (Arizona, on the other hand is Baja Utah and probably a lost primary cause this cycle.)

Why not embarrass Willard while derailing his cash-train and any momentum he was hoping for going into Super Tuesday?

I barely ever leave my really tiny town so I seldom see more than a handful of people everyday but I know my neighbors and a few of the old folks I run into at the post office are Santorum voters.

In 2010 the polls all said my congressional candidate was a likely loser right up to election day, then he ended up winning by 5%. Many of our local papers have taken a hard left turn so they aren’t to be trusted.

I think Santorum will pull off a narrow win here even if I have to march my neighbors to the polling place at gunpoint.

They are holding their own, but the scorched earth campaign has to be having an effect. I know nothing of the Santorum ground game and have never seen one of their volunteers (he is not my first choice, as stated earlier). Romney is coming to our neck of the woods tomorrow, I wish I had the time to protest him. Cripplecreek may know more about their organization here, and what the scuttle from them is.

None of the four do, except Newt, IMO. Thus, my goal would be for the race to stay muddied until Newt can rally - IF he can rally - and I am not sure whether or not that is possible. So no, I am not in a rush to promote Santorum too fast because I think a Santorum nomination damns us to the following possible outcomes:
A: he is totally rejected by the American public because in a two man race his pettiness and snarkiness and self righteousness cannot be hidden the way it was in an 8 person field and therefore we have an absolute disaster in November 2012
B: he wins the Presidency because Obama is weak, but governs as GWB without the charm, damning us to higher spending and congressional losses and a disaster in 2014 and again 2016 where we get the next Obama.

No real country again for at least 20 years or more.

I’m sorry, that’s how I see it with Santorum. In other words, for the rest of the life expectancy of many on FR, the nation is screwed. Just cannot get on board with that now.

Yeah right. Santorum sunk himself by showing his true colors under fire—a "team player" career politician who only gives lip service to so-called consistent principles.

Important to remember that even Soros said there was little difference between Bath-House Barry and Romney.

It does take a rare mind indeed to still be fooled by Huckabee. It takes that same kind of mind to think that a ticket of Santuckabee could get more than a handful of votes nationwide.

And then to think that a pragamtic businessman like Cain would support such nonsense? Next he’ll tell us Bill O Reilly understands the oil business.

This is a rare mind. Thank GOD!

I share your selection of Newt as our best hope, he has the gift of being able to paint a compelling case for conservative principles, the experience of defeating the libs nationally, the knowledge of the legislation process, and dealing with the liberal media bias.

I do not think Santorum would be as horrible as you are suggesting, my take is that both the conservatives (yes, an 88 ACU rating is conservative) in the race, Newt and then Santorum would do well in the race, whereas it will be easier for the dems to take out Romney than the other two.

Santorum has his baggage (heck, so does Newt, BIGTIME), but I think you may be exaggerating Santorum's problems.

At this point, it is my belief that neither of them can stand against Romney without the other staying in the race. Romney will be able to focus on only one with his scorched earth tactics if the other leaves the race, but if he has to do it to both, he exposes himself, uses more of his campaign chest, and becomes weaker. If Newt and Santorum do not tag team Mitt back, he will win.

If Newt does not win, I can support Santorum, it is Romney who is the candidate of death, the only one IMHO that cannot win against Obama.

“Interesting indeed, because a pretty fair case can be made that Santorum was himself a tool of the Romney Campaign to destroy Newt”

There is no case that can intelligently be made that Santorum was a tool of the Romney campaign. You are distracting from the actual facts in the case that Paul is a Romney tool by spreading outright lies.

Are you trying to create a disinformation campaign to cover up and distract from what is really going on? Or are you a troll or something? What is your purpose in spreading idle gossip?

I respect your assessment of RS, and I would hope that you are right and that I am wrong.

Yes, he has a decent, and by decent, I mean “NOT GREAT” ACU rating, but beyond that, those ratings don’t measure success or accomplishments on these issues. It’s just a check box. I just don’t think RS can lead any kind of real needed change, even though he would perhaps believe most of the right things.

Talent matters.

I agree, which is why I support Newt (his ACU rating is 90).

I do not think RS has the same capacity to do the battle, but I do believe he has some solid strengths, connects to blue collar dems, does well with other demographics Newt does not do so well with.

I would not hesitate to support him if he wins, and think he will run a strong campaign if he does. I simply think Newt would be better as a campaigner, and much better as a president. Obama will demagogue the Hell out of either one of them (both have different kinds of baggage), and both will fight back. Newt is better at fighting back, IMHO. It's a shame that the scorched earth Romney tactic has brought him so low, I hope he can recover with super Tuesday. I do believe they need to tag team Mitt, or Mitt will win.

I like anyone that the establishment fears. They are the problem and the only solution is to put one of their biggest nightmares in the White House. Sarah Palin is my #1 choice as she obviously terrifies them with her record of jailing corrupt politicians. If the establishment likes and trusts and promotes a pol, you can bet he is not on our side. I do not think the GOP is to be trusted and see their support as a negative. I don’t think I am alone in this and maybe, just maybe, it is time for a third party. An admittedly dangerous course, but these are very dangerous times and I think both parties are taking their orders from some source other than “we, the people”, and it may be time to throw them both out and start anew. Maybe.

Seriously. Newt supporters should at the very least stop ripping Santo on FR until at least after Tuesday. Stop crowing and passing out cookies for him slipping in the polls. Santo needs to beat mitt in MI or else. For this week, stop bashing Santorum! Support Gingrich quietly for one week only and we might avoid Rominee. Please?

**************************************
C. Edmund Wright, these words extracted from this post of yours are representative of much of your postings in this thread. My personal opinion is that it is counterproductive to insult your fellow conservatives but I guess that that is your right here.

I hope that ROMNEY DOES NOT GET the nomination and that GINGRICH DOES get it. And, strategically thinking, that is why I hope and pray that Santorum DOES win the Michigan primary. That will go a long way in slowing up the momentum (or appearance of momentum & inevitability) that the Romney organization has been trying to build.

I encourage ALL MICHIGAN FReepers to support and VOTE FOR SANTORUM.

I have nothing to do with the Gingrich Campaign.

I am a part time consultant and writer for a PAC that supports Newt and is also involved in energy related projects. I believed in domestic drilling and in Newt BEFORE this organization asked me to work for them.

Again, that might be difficult to understand. But sometimes the gig follows the belief and not the other way around. In fact, this is how it should always flow.

Thanks. I asked him twice why he was spreading an obviously false narrative. The first time he responded with nothing but personal insults. The second time he did not respond.

Do Newt supporters realize their financial contributions are going to support someone who spends his time spreading lies and personally insulting conservatives?
