‘The Video That Newt Doesn’t Want You to See’

150-second online ad cross-examines the former Speaker’s record on policy, values and seriousness
LAKE JACKSON, Texas – The Ron Paul 2012 Presidential campaign announced today that it has released and will broadly distribute a 150-second online advertisement that challenges former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on a group of issues dear to conservative voters.
Much of the ad is in the former Speaker’s own voice, and after a few statements by Newt it follows with an image of him sitting on a loveseat beside former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the two chuckling over their agreement concerning as-yet scientifically proven anthropogenic global warming.  The ad also features Newt’s knee-jerk assault on Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) modest budget proposal, and the former Speaker’s lobbying ties to government mortgage giants Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae that perpetuated the financial crisis and recession.  In addition, the spot showcases discussion of Newt’s lobbying ties to healthcare firms prior to his support of an Obama-Pelosi-Reid individual mandate as part of the recent wildly unpopular healthcare reform, to the absolute horror of nationally-syndicated conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh.
Taken together, claims made in the ad present conservative voters with a question about Newt, and indeed the ad concludes with this query.  And that is “What will you tell me next time?”
The campaign will send the ad to a far-reaching email list of conservative voters nationally, including in key early voting states, and it will purchase banner ads on national and state websites where conservative readers congregate.
“Our campaign is making a bold move to debunk the myth that the Newt we are seeing on the 2012 campaign trail is the conservative he has been touted to be all along.  This step we are taking is necessary, as voters are seeking authenticity among conservatives who are able to show a decades-long career of consistently walking the walk of Constitutional principles, limited government, and promoting sound money and economic policy.  Ron Paul is the only Republican presidential candidate with that record,” said Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton.

Ron Paul Top-Tier in Latest Rasmussen New Hampshire Poll

Enjoying solid support with Granite State voters
LAKE JACKSON, Texas – A Rasmussen poll released yesterday shows 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul third place in New Hampshire, further solidifying his position at the top of the field among New Hampshire primary voters. Paul won 14 percent of likely primary-goers in the poll.
“The latest poll results show Ron Paul as a solid choice in New Hampshire and a refreshing voice against the status quo,” said Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton. “The American people, and the people of New Hampshire, are paying attention and are ready for a candidate with the conviction to bring about real change.”
The latest poll follows a number of recent polls placing Paul among the top three in key early states. According to NewsMax/Insider Advantage, Ron Paul is a solid second place in Iowa. And in a recent American Research Group poll, Paul took third among likely Iowa Republican caucus-goers. He also scores third place in New Hampshire, according to a recent WMUR/University of New Hampshire poll. And the most recent Suffolk University/7 News poll has Paul holding steady in second place with 14 percent among likely New Hampshire primary voters.
In addition, a late October CNN/Time poll showed the Texas congressman in the top three in the key Republican primary states of Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina.

Conservative Party Could Have Helped “Super Committee”

Although the Conservative Party congratulated the GOP and the Tea Party for giving Obama and the Democrats a shellacking last November, we’re finding little to cheer about this November.  The Debt Ceiling fiasco was… well... a fiasco and Congress still has not enacted a budget in nearly 1,000 days.
The Super Committee is proof positive of only one thing: It proves the Republi-Dem Congress and the Administration have failed to govern – again.  They shifted the burden and responsibility of making the needed tough fiscal decisions to this Committee.  The President has failed to lead and the Republi-Dem congress is as inept, hamstrung and wracked with fear as ever. The consequences of this Committee’s failure to reach an agreement will be dire, especially on our Defense readiness.  And trying to insert a surreptitious farm subsidy bill into this new arrangement exemplifies “business as usual” rather than true fiscal reform.
Since Congress failed - again, CP-USA offers a Cost-Cutting Road Map. While adopting these solutions will not cure all our fiscal problems immediately, they will staunch the bleeding, slow the mounting debt and get Congress moving in the right direction.  The GOP has no choice but to finally do what it has promised Americans for the past 25 years.  They have this one, last and final chance.  If they fail – again – the GOP will confirm that it’s finished as a viable party.
STEP 1 of 13 - STOP BASE LINE BUDGETING: This pernicious accounting gimmick requires budgets to automatically increase by 10% every year. The net effect is that even if Congress “cuts” a program by 4%, for example, actual spending still increases by 6%. The “cut” is an illusion while the increase is real. It will be impossible to make meaningful budget reforms until this institutional deception is expunged.

Action Required to Save Unemployme​nt Benefits

Right off the bat, let's get something done: Sign The Petition to reauthorize the full federal unemployment insurance program through 2012 before it expires Dec. 31. Unless Congress acts to renew federal unemployment insurance, nearly 2 million hardworking Americans will be cut off in the month of January alone, and more than 6 million will lose these benefits during 2012. The AFL-CIO is delivering the petition to Congress this afternoon, so please sign now!
Job Creation
Would you like another story from the many actions taken on November 17th for infrastructure jobs? This one is from the People's World, focusing on Baltimore, MD. Speaking of job creation, even the Wall Street Journal doesn't think regulation hurts job creation - in fact, it helps it. Read the article here.
December 1st Actions
All across the nation, on Thursday 12/1/11, there will be hundreds of "99% Congressional Speak-Outs" at local congressional  offices to express our disgust that Washington has done nothing for the  struggling majority. Click here to find the MoveOn event near you.
Also, in New York City on December 1 there will be a March for Jobs and Economic Fairness sponsored by the AFL-CIO and the NYC Central Labor Council. If you're near the Big Apple, please join in!
In solidarity,

Ron Paul’s Mainstream Foreign Policy

Writes Conor Friedersdorf at The Atlantic:
Remember when Paul belonged to the minority in Congress that opposed the Iraq War? Now, 62 percent of Americans say fighting the Iraq war was a mistake. You know the Republicans who criticized President Obama for presiding over the end of America’s military presence in Iraq? Well, like Paul (and unlike Obama) 78 percent of Americans support full withdrawal. And in Afghanistan, another country that Paul wants to leave, two thirds of Americans want to see troop levels reduced. “Just one in three Americans believe fighting there is the right thing for the U.S. to do,” CBS News found, “while 57 percent think the U.S. should not be involved in Afghanistan.”
Like Ron Paul, Americans are also overwhelmingly against bombing Iran’s nuclear infrastructure. And although I’ll bet he wants to cut the Pentagon budget more than the average American does, a majority of the public prefers defense cuts to other kinds, and as Rasmussen found earlier this year, “Nearly one-half of Americans now think the United States can make major cuts in defense spending without putting the country in danger. They believe even more strongly that there’s no risk in cutting way back on what America spends to defend other countries.”
Comparing Paul’s positions to those of either the American people or foreign-affairs experts in the State Department and academia, it is clear that his views are closer to normal than most of his Republican opponents’… On the biggest, most consequential foreign policy issues, he is averse to war, as are his countrymen. It is only when they are compared to the views of the Washington establishment, where the Washington Post op-ed page, the Weekly Standard, and the American Enterprise Institute are regarded as mainstream institutions, that Paul’s foreign-policy views seem like the abnormal ones.

VIDEO: White House Grilled on Obama Events in Swing States

Excerpts from Washington Examiner
By Joel Gehrke
November 28, 2011
“White House Press Secretary Jay Carney faced several questions about the high number of official, taxpayer funded events by President Obama in battleground states crucial to his reelection hopes, and defended Obama by arguing that presidential travel should not be restricted by the possibility that the state could plausibly support or oppose the incumbent's reelection.
“Asked about reports that Obama is effectively campaigning on ‘the taxpayer's dime,’ Carney said he ‘reject[ed] the premise’ of the question. ‘If you…said 'the president of the United States cannot travel to states that are perceived to be battleground states,' you would severely limit the capacity of this president…to travel anywhere’…
“‘It's a guessing-game to suggest that we know what states are battleground states necessarily’…
“When a reporter challenged the idea that political benefit played no role in where Obama decided to travel, Carney maintained that ‘the decisions for official events are made for official reasons.’
“You can see Carney field these questions in the video below.”

What They’re Actually Saying: Romney’s Ad Deceitful, Dishonest, Manipulates the Truth

By DNC Press
The New Yorker
 .@RyanLizza on Romney's ad: If a journalist quoted someone in such a way, you'd never trust the person’s writing again:
Ames Tribune: “Meanwhile, GOP contender Mitt Romney has just debuted a television ad that also deceives viewers about something the president said during the 2008 presidential campaign…This is dishonest, and it does not reflect the integrity that Romney is seeking to cultivate on the campaign trail.” (The Ames Tribune, 11/23/11)
New York Daily News: “Mitt Romney’s greatest potential vulnerability, fair or fable, is the suspicion he’ll do or say anything to get himself elected President. Which is why his new ad in New Hampshire is such a boneheaded strategic move. It feeds that dangerous perception that has dogged Romney since the 2008 campaign. The new ad is a gross distortion of the truth.” (New York Daily News, 11/22/11)
Washington Post: “This is a truly remarkable response. The Romney camp is explicitly saying it’s totally fair game to take an opponent’s words out of context in a way that completely changes their meaning, simply because the actual words in question did come out of the speaker’s mouth. As many have noted today, the Romney ad’s decontextualizing of Obama’s words is so egregious that it amounts to a lie. Yet here a Romney adviser is claiming that this is fair game, because he said those words.” (Washington Post, 11/22/11)
New Yorker—Why Didn’t Reporters Call Romney a Liar? “While it’s always interesting and useful to report on how a campaign believes something is going to play out, it seems to me in this case the news that the quote in the ad is falsely attributed to Obama outweighs the news of the Romney campaign’s predictable spin.” (The New Yorker, 11/22/11)
Esquire: “The ad is utterly dishonest but, luckily, the campaign already had in place a defense strategy for when the campaign got called on the ad's dishonesty, a campaign that musters all the self-pity and poor-widdle-rich-boy disdain that has made Willard so popular with 22 percent of the people who might actually vote for him.” (Esquire, 11/22/11)
Think Progress: “The Romney campaign’s very first television ad, released this evening, dishonestly presents a 2008 McCain campaign quote as the words of President Obama. The ad features a voice-over of Obama saying ‘if we keep talking about the economy, we’re going to lose.’ Then-candidate Obama indeed said those words, perhaps dozens of times during the closing month of the 2008 campaign. The only problem? Obama was actually quoting the words of a strategist from Sen. John McCain’s campaign.” (Think Progress, 11/21/11)
Washington Monthly: ““[H]ow much more deception can Romney try to get away with before he develops a reputation as a candidate with an honesty problem? Last week, an MIT economist who worked with Romney said the former governor is ‘just lying’ about health care policy. The same week, Romney was caught lying about the makeup of the last Congress, and also got caught lying about a quote from the president… Three weeks ago, the former governor got caught lying about his tax plan, and several times over the last few months, Romney has also been caught lying about economic conditions and whether the president ‘apologized for America’ (he didn’t).” (Washington Monthly, 11/22/11)
Associated Press: “Adwatch: Romney takes Obama out of context again:” “Romney's first ad of the presidential campaign takes Obama out of context and gives the impression that the president is talking about his time in office, not that of his predecessor.” (AP, 11/22/11)

475 Million Pages a Year

Yesterday President Obama signed a Presidential Memo instructing Federal agencies move into a digital-based record keeping system.
The Federal Government creates 475 million pages of records a year-- digitizing these records will save money, promote accountability, and increase government transparency.

Ron Paul Remains Top-Tier in Latest Iowa Poll

Strong second, leads field in Independent vote
LAKE JACKSON, Texas – A NewsMax/Insider Advantage poll released yesterday shows 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul in second place in the state of Iowa, solidifying his position at the top of the field and remaining a serious threat to take the Iowa Caucuses in January. Paul won 13 percent of likely caucus-goers in the poll and an impressive 30 percent of independent voters, leading the rest of the field. In addition, Paul won 47 percent of voters between 18 and 29 years old.
“The latest poll results clearly prove Ron Paul’s status as a top contender, and confirms that our campaign is continuing to surge in early states,” said Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton. “The American people are ready for real change in Washington and Dr. Paul is the only candidate who has a plan to cut $1 trillion in spending, balance the budget, and restore prosperity to the American people.”
This latest poll comes on the heels of a number of recent polls placing Paul among the top three in key early states. According to a recent American Research Group poll, Paul takes third among likely Republican caucus-goers in Iowa. He also scores third place in New Hampshire, according to a recent WMUR/University of New Hampshire poll. And the most recent Suffolk University/7 News poll has Paul holding steady in second place with 14 percent among likely New Hampshire primary voters.
In addition, a late October CNN/Time poll showed the Texas congressman in the top three in the key Republican primary states of Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina.

Des Moines Register: PAC-Sponsored Poll of Iowa GOP Caucusgoers Shows Paul and Cain in the Lead

Note: Jennifer Jacobs omitted the primary poll statistic that showed Ron Paul in First Place from her article. She did however link to the full PDF of our report.
For the full poll results and analysis see:
Jennifer Jacobs 2:45 PM, Nov 25, 2011
A poll on Monday of Iowa likely GOP caucusgoers paid for by a political action committee that supports presidential candidate Ron Paul shows Paul in the lead, tied with Herman Cain at 22 percent.
Timothy Hagle, a politics professor at the University of Iowa, after examining the poll results said: “Paul supporters will certainly find things to like in the poll.
The finding that Paul and three others are jammed at the top in the low-20 percent to high-teens is consistent with J. Ann Selzer’s Bloomberg survey from Nov. 10-12, Hagle noted.

Flip-Flopping Newt Gingrich

Photo by Gage Skidmore
Newt Gingrich’s chronic flip-flopping almost makes the ever-malleable Mitt Romney look consistent. Here’s a compilation from MSNBC and please note, this is just the tip of the iceberg:
Health-Insurance Mandate:
Flip: “Personal responsibility extends to the purchase of health insurance. Citizens should not be able to cheat their neighbors by not buying insurance, particularly when they can afford it, and expect others to pay for their care when they need it.” — June 2007
Flop: “I am against any effort to impose a federal mandate on anyone because it is fundamentally wrong and I believe unconstitutional.” — May 16, 2011
Flip: “I think if you have mandatory carbon caps combined with a trading system, much like we did with sulfur, and if you have a tax-incentive program for investing in the solutions, that there’s a package there that’s very, very good. And frankly, it’s something I would strongly support.” — February 2, 2007
Flop: “A carbon cap and trade system … would lead to corruption, political favoritism, and would have a huge impact on the economy.” — April 21, 2008
Climate Change:
Flip: “I think is that the evidence is sufficient that we should move towards the most effective possible steps to reduce carbon-loading of the atmosphere.” — April 10, 2007
Flop: “I actually don’t know whether global warming is occurring.” — November 8, 2011
Paul Ryan’s Budget Plan:
Flip: “I don’t think right-wing social engineering is any more desirable than left-wing social engineering… [Paul Ryan's Medicare proposal] is too big a jump.” — May 15, 2011
Flop: “I made a mistake…” — May 17, 2011
Flip: “Exercise a no-fly zone this evening … Provide help to the rebels to replace [Qaddafi] … All we have to do is suppress his air force, which we could do in minutes.” — March 7, 2011
Flop: “I would not have intervened. I think there were a lot of other ways to affect Qaddafi … I would not have used American and European forces.” — March 23, 2011
Criminal Court Trials for Suspected Terrorists:
Flip: “Well, I think if [members of the Bush administration] believe they have enough evidence to convict [Jose Padilla], going through the process of convicting him and holding him, I suspect, may be for the rest of his life without parole would not be — would hardly be seen as a loss. I think this administration is still wrestling with what are the real ground rules for dealing with people who are clearly outside of normal warfare? They’re not wearing a uniform. They’re not part of an army. They are openly threatening to kill thousands or even millions of people.” — November 22, 2005
Flop: “Why would you take a Nigerian national who just tried to blow up a plane over Detroit … Why would you take that person, put them in the American criminal justice system, give them an attorney, read them their Miranda rights?” — January 4, 2010

Young Americans Want Less Government

By Jack Hunter
Many observers can’t figure out why Ron Paul attracts so many young supporters. This CNS News report gives some insight as to why a rising generation wanting less spending and debt continues to rally behind the greatest modern day champion of limited government:
Generation Opportunity, a non-profit group that seeks to engage Americans of all ages who are dissatisfied with the status quo and have the willingness to create a better tomorrow, conducted a poll recently that showed the views that 18-29-year-olds have on leadership in Washington and government spending, current satisfaction with employment, and national security concerns.
“People don’t feel as though small businesses and startups are in an environment right now where the government understands what needs to get done, which is get out of the way,” said Generation Opportunity President Paul Conway. “People are frustrated, extremely frustrated.”
According to the poll, young Americans favor a smaller budget.
On the budget battle in Washington, the poll shows that 76 percent of millennials—those born between 1981 and 2000—favor a decrease in federal spending from its current level. Also, 69 percent prefer reducing spending over raising taxes on individuals in order to balance the budget, and 59 percent think the economy would grow best if Washington got out of the way.
Terrorism was not the greatest threat to national security, the poll showed. Topping American national security concerns was the national debt (63 percent), energy dependency (61 percent) and indebtedness to foreign powers (50 percent) were second and third respectively. Terrorism ranked fourth among national security concerns.

Zach Foster's Thanksgiving 2011 Message

Thanksgiving 2008 at Baharia, Iraq.
Photo by the U.S. Navy
This is a very special day in the United States, and I hope the traditions we celebrate here today will soon spread throughout the world.  The very first Thanksgiving in North America was a day when two clashing civilizations were able to set aside their differences as one helped the other not to starve, and they sat together as brothers and gave thanks to the Almighty.
Today, I have many reasons to give thanks to God, though Thanksgiving Day is by no means the only day I’m truly thankful.  I have a strong faith in God, a wonderful family, loyal friends, a comfortable job, and even further, I’ve been given the privilege of I living free in an exceptional Constitutional republic, of serving my state and country as a reservist, and to attend an excellent university.  I see the Almighty working in the world every day, guiding us all to make improvements in our lives and the way we get along with others.
I’m also incredibly thankful and fortunate for everyone reading this message.  It’s the readers of the Political Spectrum as well as the other Political Spectrum Publishing blogs that make this venture so worth it!  Every day hundreds of people stop by to get the latest news and commentary on the political and economic arenas, and among all the mainstream media and junk media available, I’m glad that those readers came here.  Thank you all!
So far we’ve all met many of Political Spectrum Publishing’s New Year’s goals:
·         We have more than doubled the combined readership of the blogs
·         My political Facebook account has over 1,500 friends (500 more than our goal by December 31, 2011)
·         We have over 300 loyal followers on Twitter, many of whom mention and re-tweet @PublishPolitics
·         Thousands of people have viewed Political Spectrum Publishing videos on YouTube (channel PoliSpecPublishing)
·         Political Spectrum Publishing has published several books and is merely waiting for the best time to release them to the market!
·         Readers continue to submit articles, op-eds, and comments which are great!  (If you have a submission, send it to or
May every one of you have an amazing day with your families, friends, or improvised families and have a warm time of togetherness to reflect all you’re thankful for.  I send my warmest greetings and best wishes to all troops overseas, from Japan and South Korea to Belgium and Germany, from Afghanistan and Iraq to Kuwait and North Africa.  Stay safe, brothers and sisters!
If you’re not with loved ones right now and won’t be with loved ones today, go out right now!  Find someone who’s hanging out all alone and invite them to have a Thanksgiving dinner with you, whether it’s beef jerky in the park or a large meal at your home or a restaurant.  Make new friends that will stick with you through thick and thin!
Because of the fact that the original thanks givers were able to set their differences aside like adults, despite radically differing faiths, cultures, languages, and systems of ethics, I have hope for the future of mankind.  I have hope that the Palestinian will soon be able to sit and dine with the Israeli, that the Shi’ite will be able to sit with the Sunni, the North Korean with the South Korean, the Christian with the Muslim, that angry and estranged brothers in the United States will forgive and embrace each other again, and that Almighty God will warm the hearts of human beings through knowledge and understanding.
Have a happy Thanksgiving.  God bless you.

TeleResearch: Crossover Appeal Catapults Ron Paul in Iowa

Comprehensive study of Iowa electorate puts Rep. Paul firmly in first among caucus-goers.
NORTHBROOK, IL Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul is leading by a significant margin in Iowa, according to a new TeleResearch poll commissioned by Revolution PAC.
In addition to likely Republican caucus-goers, the automated telephone survey, conducted November 21, is the first to incorporate disaffected Iowa Democrats and Independents who indicated that they will not vote to reelect Obama and will instead crossover to participate in the Iowa Republican Caucus.
The survey is also distinguished by its comparatively large sample size of 2,983 individuals.
Factoring in both likely Republican caucus-goers (678) and disaffected Democrats and Independents (168) intending to participate in the Iowa Republican Caucus in January 3, Ron Paul leads at 25 percent, with a four-point advantage over Newt Gingrich and a five-point advantage over Herman Cain.
Factoring in only Republicans voters, Ron Paul is in a three-way dead heat for the lead, with Paul and Cain tied and Gingrich trailing by one point. This result mirrors recent national polls of the Republican landscape in Iowa.
The TeleResearch poll also reveals that more than 25 percent of all respondents – Democrats, Republicans and Independents – stated that an interventionist foreign policy is the greatest threat to long-term peace and national security.
TeleResearch reports that the margin of error for its study is less than 3 percent. Complete survey results can be found at
“This poll really gets under the surface of the typically elusive Iowa Caucus electorate,” notes TeleResearch founder and CEO Jeff Lewis. “It’s clearly the most comprehensive study currently available for Iowa.”
Lewis continues, “Of course, the sample size of nearly 3,000 is notable. But, also significant is our proven automated methodology, which serves to mitigate interviewer bias and increase response accuracy.”
“This poll confirms that Americans from across the political spectrum are warming up to a man who’s proudly running on his record, not away from it,” remarks honorary Revolution PAC Chair Tom Woods. “We’ve seen the GOP flavors of the month rise and then fall for months now. Ron Paul’s campaign isn’t based on flashiness and superficiality, but on the record and ideas of the most principled, consistent and courageous statesman our country can boast.”
Indiana-based TeleResearch, a pioneer in the use of automated polling technology, has conducted public opinion/research surveys and provided consulting services for both public- and private-sector entities since 1993. Of the 95 candidate polls the firm has conducted during the last eight election cycles, TeleResearch has forecast 94 winners.
Revolution PAC is supporting Ron Paul’s consistent, constitutional message with targeted TV advertising, direct mail campaigns and Web promotions complemented by billboards and radio ads in key primary states. Unlimited donations by individuals, businesses and organizations are being accepted by Revolution PAC to support that effort.
