MCCONNELL SCANDAL; Strategy Session To Attack Ashley Judd’s MENTAL HEALTH, Jesse Benton Involved, FBI Called In By McConnell
War monger Mitch McConnell, the man who wants to preemptively attack Iran using “overwhelming force”, to satisfy his Zionist desires and AIPAC friends, and who also suggests giving his supposed political enemy Obama ”Unilateral Powers”, has been embarrassed by some leaked audio of his campaign strategists at work.
Rather than address the issue McConnell’s campaign is trying to spin this into a “Nixonian tactics to bug campaign headquarters” recording scandal, which it is not, since the leak is obviously from someone inside his own campaign.
I suggest this is just standard political demonization of an opponent practiced by both parties, however, it’s a very interesting look behind the scenes at how they are now focusing on opponent’s Blogs, Facebook, Twitter, family history, mental history, anything to paint their opponent in a bad light. This is also a great example of why the government should NOT be allowed to data mine its own citizens, for this inevitably leads to an elite power using the collected data to blackmail any political opponents.
Interestingly this also involves “Patriot Movement” sellout and traitor Jesse Benton, and also the sellout Rand Paul.

(CNN) – Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky won the presidential straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday. Paul won with 25% of the vote and finished slightly ahead of Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida. In third place was former senator and presidential candidate Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania.
Nearly 3,000 votes were cast by attendees at the three-day conference held at a hotel just outside of Washington. The straw poll is considered one way to gauge where the conservative base stands on potential Republican nominees. The ballot included 23 Republicans with a national political profile as well as spots for write-ins and “undecided.”
Former Secretary of State Condolezza Rice and 43 others – including former president Richard Nixon, who died in 1994 – received at least one write-in vote.
Another potential presidential candidate, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, asked not to be on the ballot. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who received 7%, and Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, were on the ballot but were not invited to speak on the main stage.
Paul earned himself a serving of goodwill from conservatives after he stood for nearly 13 hours on the Senate floor, filibustering and demanding the Obama administration answer his question about the government’s authority to use drone strikes against American citizens on U.S. soil.
His father, former GOP congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul, won the straw poll in 2011 and 2010.
Rounding out the top 10 vote-getters were Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker at 5%, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas at 4%, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal at 4%, and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin – the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate – with 3%.
Dr. Benjamin Carson, a neurosurgeon who became a political figure after speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast last month, had a speaking slot at CPAC and garnered 4% of the vote.
Only 1% reported they were undecided.
Fewer votes were cast than in 2012 and 2011, as the presidential campaign drove interest in politics. In 2011, over 3,700 ballots were cast and last year, there were 3,400 votes.
Eventual Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney won the straw poll last year. Poll organizers released percentages but not the actual number of votes candidates received.
This is just one of the results from the brilliant power play by Sen Rand Paul and Crew. They outed MSNBC-GE-Comcast, Democrats, OBOMBA Koolaid drinkers, AND the McCain / Graham RINO’s!!!!! Gotta love it!
Actor John Cusack describes himself as a progressive, but he has been a critic of the federal government’s drone program regardless of who has been is in office. Frankly, he has also be a pretty harsh critic of President Barack Obama as well.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and other GOP senators on Wednesday conducted an old-school filibuster on the Senate floor to block John Brennan’s nomination and bring attention to the potential for drone strikes on U.S. soil. As the hours went by, Cusack was curious to know: “where are Democrats?”
Cusack had one tweet that was longer than 140 characters, but here’s what he wrote:
AG say its ok to kill us citizens–and other bad guys- but trust us we’re the good guys..
how’d that play out through history mr holder…
pay no attention to the man behind that curtain
the great and powerful O has spoken…
The filibuster lasted almost 13 hours.
One of the oldest and most storied traditions of the Senate made a sudden return to Capitol Hill on Wednesday when a junior senator seized control of the chamber with an hours-long filibuster involving rambling speeches aimed at blocking a vote on President Obama’s choice to lead the CIA.
Led by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) with help from other junior senators, the filibuster was aimed at drawing attention to deep concern on both sides of the aisle about the administration’s use of unmanned aerial drones in its fight against terrorists and whether the government would ever use them in the United States.
Shortly before noon, Paul — the scion of a political family at the heart of the libertarian movement — came to the Senate floor and declared his opposition to the nomination of John O. Brennan, Obama’s choice to lead the spy agency, who has overseen the drone program.
“I will speak until I can no longer speak,” Paul said as he began. “I will speak as long as it takes, until the alarm is sounded from coast to coast that our Constitution is important, that your rights to trial by jury are precious, that no American should be killed by a drone on American soil without first being charged with a crime, without first being found to be guilty by a court.”
Has Capitol Hill suddenly gone green?
Just a day after Democratic Rep. Jared Polis of Colorado introduced legislation to decriminalize marijuana, Republican Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky introduced another bill Thursday in support of industrial hemp, currently illegal in the U.S. because it comes from the same plant as marijuana.
And now, Sen. Rand Paul’s office tells Whispers it could introduce companion legislation in the Senate “as soon as next week.”
In late January, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said he’d throw his support behind industrial hemp, a surprise endorsement from the long-time opponent of marijuana. McConnell cited conversations he’d had with Paul, and the Huffington Post’s Ryan Grim points out the change came after the Kentucky senator hired Jesse Benton to run his 2014 re-election campaign. Benton is the former campaign manager of Paul’s father, former Texas congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul.

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul said preliminary details of a potential fiscal cliff deal that emerged Monday are a “deal killer” for him because they don’t slash spending, though he conceded a scaled-back deal could pass both chambers with bipartisan support.
From my point of view, this leaves the junior senator from Kentucky, Rand Paul, standing near the altar like a jilted bridesmaid. Not a very pretty picture.
And now what has Rand Paul got?
I’ll tell you in four words at the end of this article.
First, the bigger picture … So far Rand’s gamble – endorsing Romney – doesn’t seem to be paying off. And there may be a salutary lesson in this.
It is late in the day.
The power elite that wants to run the world is more ruthless than ever. Panicked by the Internet and the exposure of the globalist conspiracy, they have launched half a dozen wars and kicked off a worldwide economic depression.
If they cannot run the world, they seem to be saying, no one else shall have it either. Like children, they clutch the Earth’s big blue ball to their collective chest.
Only they are not children. They control the world’s central banks, the world’s nuclear arsenal and are collectively worth trillions. And they are furious.
They don’t like to be challenged, apparently, not fundamentally, as the Internet has done.
What we call the Internet Reformation has exposed their plans and shown quite clearly the length and breadth of the directed history they’ve practiced while snickering behind their long, gilded sleeve.
Rand Paul can promise to serve them. But it is, as I said, late in the game. Their arrogance is rising along with their fear. And thus, they treat their servants more carelessly than ever. They are discarding the useless ones feverishly.
They are preparing to jettison a whole shelf-load of bankers, for instance – accusing them of corruption in order to pass more laws that will further tighten their grip over the world’s financial commerce. These elites RUN government. When laws are passed, they inevitably benefit.
Their servants, former masters of the universe, are just now starting to understand what it means to work for Money Power … and how quickly the dynastic families worth trillions will slough off mere billionaires if it suits their purposes.
Rand Paul is getting that treatment now. Perhaps he insufficiently understood their ruthlessness and desperation.
Did he really believe at this late date that he – a mere mortal – could horse-trade with the gods? Once they saw how angry he’d made his base with the Romney endorsement, they no doubt cast him aside.
Perhaps Rand Paul didn’t know … or doesn’t understand. Their promises are worthless. He is less than human to them, a two-bit player in the carny act of regulatory democracy.
What does Rand have now?
There is the nebulous promise of speech-ifying at the GOP Convention, but no specifics announced yet.
And, really, at this point, who will be watching the convention?
They’re not excited about Romney, you see … just excited about ridding themselves of someone else.
“Savvy” observers counseled that Rand Paul had made his endorsement to “play the game” – with the idea that you have to show the powers-that-be that you are willing to accept the current reality before you are allowed to change it.
These observers speculated that Rand Paul was in the running for the vice presidential nomination. They also surmised that Rand Paul’s endorsement might have won him a center-stage speech slot at the upcoming convention. Maybe even his dad might be given a slot as a result.
But so far, it doesn’t look like it.
US News recently pointed out that Ron Paul “suffered a setback in his effort to have a major impact on the Republican National Convention” when the Republican National Committee declined to recognize a slate of Paul delegates from Louisiana.
Much thoughtfulness there, eh? Meanwhile, there is no news about Ron Paul addressing the convention. The leading constitutionalist politician of his era will not even speak at his “last hurrah.”
And if Rand does, I doubt he’ll get center stage. I doubt in the long run it will mean anything at all.
He can’t bring the young people with him to vote for Romney because the young people have delved deep into the Internet and discovered the con. The wars are a con, the economy is a con … even their future is a kind of con.
Are they supposed to vote for this media airbrushed personality, this second-rate financial thug whose supporters literally beat Ron Paul supporters like a collective drum in order to satisfy … what? Rand Paul’s measured, calculated massaging of the GOP ego?
It is late in the day for Ron Paul supporters as well. And there are tens of millions of them. They could have been Rand’s.
And ironically, if he hadn’t decided to be a little too smart, he could have “taken them with him.” If he hadn’t compromised, if he’d stood up to the pressure and the powers-that-be, he’d actually have come closer to achieving his goal.
What’s clear is that Rand Paul DOESN’T control his father’s base. One only needs to read the Internet to see that. If they perceived of him as they do his Daddy, then they WOULD be his.
And he would be stronger rather than weaker.
Because ALL they respect is strength. Rand Paul may have thought by portraying himself as a more reasonable man than his father, he’d ingratiate himself and receive cooperation and kudos. (And eventually more power.)
But ironically, he HAD the power … millions, young and old, who were willing to donate for him, campaign for him, literally bleed for him.
All he had to do was say “no” to the established interests.
But he thought he was just a bit smarter than those around him. He apparently figured he’d play the game and keep his base, anyway. Instead, they’re casting him off.
So again, I ask, what has he got?
A taste like ashes.
Could the RevolUTION cause a revolt on the floor? Don’t bet on it – But we can dream ….. We were told that Dr Paul has a VERY pissed off base asking for donations returned (about $150,000.00) – so I guess YOU are dictating the actions of the candidate now… Feels good doesn’t it. Well see.
August 28, 2012
Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, speaks at a rally at the University of South Florida Sun Dome on the sidelines of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., on Sunday, Aug. 26, 2012.
TAMPA—Ron Paul is expected to make a surprise appearance on the floor of the Republican National Convention Tuesday at about 1:45 p.m., sources close to the GOP presidential candidate just told me.
His presence is apparently designed as a way to show solidarity with his several hundred delegates, many of whom are frustrated and seething because they are being outvoted and, in their minds, shunted aside at the Republican National Convention.
Paul, a GOP congressman from Texas, remains a candidate for the GOP presidential nomination but acknowledges that Mitt Romney long ago accumulated a majority of delegates and will win the roll-call vote Tuesday to secure the nomination.
But Paul supporters feel they have been pushed aside by the convention managers and the party establishment. Paul delegates and others are fighting proposed changes in party rules designed to tie delegates to the results of official nominating caucuses and primaries, rather than allowing delegates to ignore those results and support insurgent candidates at district and state party conventions.
This is what Paul forces did earlier this year in a handful of states, and they say the proposed new rules would shut them out and keep other insurgencies from getting traction in the future.
Another source of irritation for Paul delegates is that he will not be a speaker at the convention, although his son, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, will be. Rand Paul has endorsed Romney, acknowledging that his father can’t win the nomination. Ron Paul has not endorsed Romney.
Some of the hard feelings boiled over Monday when a small group of Paul delegates gathered in the back of the massive convention hall for a protest. A few held signs reading, “We can do better.” John Honey, 37, an alternate delegate from Arkansas, told The Washington Post, “We can do better than Romney. Romney may beat Obama. Paul definitely would.”
At a rally for Paul Sunday at the University of South Florida Sun Dome, 11,000 people cheered him during a speech and festival dedicated to his campaign. Lorie Siefer, of Biloxi, Mississippi, told my U.S. News colleague Elizabeth Flock, “I won’t vote for Romney. Romney and [President] Obama are two sides of the same coin….They tell you what think, how to live your life.”
