Ron Paul Supporter | CNN Loses Feed | Mediaite


Conspiracy theories abounded during last night’s CNN Iowa caucus election coverage when a Dana Bash interview with a Ron Paul-supporting caucus goer, Jesse Thorsen, was interrupted by technical difficulties.

Or was it?

Bash met with Corporal Jesse Thorsen at a caucus site, and asked what he had liked about the Republican Congressman:

BASH: We have here Corporal Jesse Thorsen, who is 28 years old, and you are active duty US Army. Why did you vote for Ron Paul?

THORSEN: I’m really excited about a lot of his ideas, especially when it comes to bringing the soldiers home. I’ve been serving for ten years now, and all ten years of those have been during wartime. I would like to see a little peace time army, and I think he has the right idea.

BASH: You’ve done two tours and you’re going to go back for a third tour. You can see — your neck right there, a tattoo, 9/11, remember, and a picture of the twin towers. Some Republicans have been saying that Ron Paul would be very dangerous for this country, because he wants to bring troops like you back from your post from all over the world.

THORSEN: Well, I think it would be even more dangerous to start nitpicking wars with other countries. Someone like Iran, Israel is more than capable of –

All of a sudden, CNN’s feed was lost, and Wolf Blitzer tried to explain what happened.

“All right. We just lost our connection, unfortunately, with Dana. Dana, stand by, if we can hear you, we’ll get back.”

Innocuous technical issues or something more dark and sinister?

“It’s absolutely clear what happened here,” said one Paul fan on his YouTube channel. “The powers that be at CNN cut this guy off because he stood for everything that he shouldn’t. He was one soldier who was too smart for his own good.”

Reddit lit up with conspiratorial Ron Paul supporters crying foul.

Later in the evening, Paul singled out Thorsen for his support.

Huffington Post’s Jason Linkins notes that the soldier violated protocol by wearing his uniform while participating in political activities, citing Defense Department Directive 1344.10:

4.1.1. A member of the Armed Forces on active duty may:
[...]
4.1.1.9. Attend partisan and nonpartisan political fundraising activities, meetings, rallies, debates, conventions, or activities as a spectator when not in uniform and when no inference or appearance of official sponsorship, approval, or endorsement can reasonably be drawn.
[...]
4.1.2. A member of the Armed Forces on active duty shall not:
4.1.2.1. Participate in partisan political fundraising activities (except as permitted in subparagraph 4.1.1.7.), rallies, conventions (including making speeches in the course thereof), management of campaigns, or debates, either on one’s own behalf or on that of another, without respect to uniform or inference or appearance of official sponsorship, approval, or endorsement. Participation includes more than mere attendance as a spectator.
[...]
4.1.2.5. Speak before a partisan political gathering, including any gathering that promotes a partisan political party, candidate, or cause.
4.1.2.6. Participate in any radio, television, or other program or group discussion as an advocate for or against a partisan political party, candidate, or cause.

Isn't the Internet great, where whatever you say never really disappears and can come back to haunt you?

Rick Santorum’s foreign policy: combative hawk–and, according to Bono, “defender of the vulnerable” | The Envoy - Yahoo! News

Rick Santorum--the surprise almost-first-place finisher in the Iowa GOP presidential caucus Tuesday--advocates a hawkish, internationalist and compassionate foreign policy deeply informed by his socially conservative, Roman Catholic faith.

Santorum had been a prominent leader in the GOP Senate caucus from 2001 through 2007, when he served as the chair of the Senate Republican Policy conference. The Pennsylvania lawmaker had been "a big supporter of AIDS funding in the Senate," a former Santorum staffer told Yahoo News Wednesday on condition of anonymity because she does not work for campaign. "He took the lead in funding for African development. He cares a lot about the underdog."

At the same time, Santorum has also been a consistent hawk when it comes to projecting U.S. power abroad, advocating a more aggressive American posture toward regimes in Syria, Iran and China. And like many conservative lawmakers, Santorum has taken an extremely pro-Israel line on the perennially-stalemated Middle East peace process. He had served on the Senate Armed Services committee for eight years, and was a principal author of legislation sanctioning the Syrian regime and promoting support to opponents of the Iranian regime.

"Rick has had intelligence briefings, he has been on the Senate armed services committee," said Barbara Ledeen, a former Santorum Senate aide, in a telephone interview with Yahoo News Wednesday.

"He has a deep concern about China, about the Middle East and about America's place in the world," Ledeen added. "He is well read and well informed. And he believes that America is a gift to the world."

Indeed, in 2006, Santorum earned a surprise--if somewhat backhanded--nod for his support for international anti-poverty work in Africa from U2 front-man and humanitarian activist Bono.

Santorum "has a kind of Tourette's disease," Bono told New York Times columnist David Brooks in 2006. "He will always say the most unpopular thing. But on our issues, he has been a defender of the most vulnerable."

he originally got into this to sell more books, which he's written a lot of, and now it's about intellectual validation via the destruction of "establishment" (and, once the general election starts, generally mainstream) Republicans like Romney.

i think he wants power insofar as it would enable him to conduct his supervillan schemes.

this is fun: Play the Game | Supervillain or Newt
Condescending seems to most accurate word, he would have made a terriffice Liberal on NPR.

One thing and seems to be a mystery is what Calista sees in him, she is lovely to look at, although I haven't heard her speak.

Ok, the witch picture was a bit mean but meant to be sarcastic but the shrew was not totally inaccurate: the woman is aggressive, has a volatile temper and has erupted in public as well as privately, and she packs cellulite. So, that's that.

Welcome to the brutally honest, gender-less world of politics where one is scrutinized more than one can ever imagine.

I do think the Democrats were sexist for not electing her over Barry as she had much more experience.

i'm sure she's not allowed, unless Newt asks her a direct question.

What does cellulite have to do with her intellectual abilities or her ability to be President or Secretary of State? Maybe Mitt has cellulite too, men can get it. I "pack" cellulite too. I'm not obese but cellulite happens. I can't afford to go get it removed and working out and losing weight doesn't get rid of it. It doesn't affect how my brain works.

Mitt Romney and all the other male candidates are also capable of having volatile tempers and erupting in public and private. I bet they can be very witchy.

If Chris Christie were the GOP primary race I'm sure his weight issue would be mentioned here.

And if Mitt, Newt or others have cellulite, bitchy witchy melt downs and so on and so forth, they'll be posted or have been posted.

I'm sure if they're out there: you or someone will post them as history here demonstrates

In the end, you are one of the most the prolific posters in this forum-so knock yourself out if you want.

Whatever dave.. <>

Yes cellulite doesn't prevent forum posting, unfortunately. One can also do certain chair exercises that might help with the appearance of cellulite but not completely eliminate it. I'm multitasking right now.

I wonder if Mitt's hair dye has seeped into his brain and affected his abilities, maybe you can diamondinvestigate.

yes, agreed, though a difference might be that, 1) Christie's weight is more of a health condition/concern, in the way that, say, McCain's recurrent skin cancer is a condition/concern, and 2) men haven't been traditionally marginalized for being overweight. no, it isn't fair, but there just seems something at least a little bit refreshing when men are the victims of the double standards they've placed on others for so long.

also, i saw Hillary once walking through DCA. yes, she does have cellulite. she also looks *perfect* from the shoulders up -- flawless hair and makeup.

Chris Christie could still get elected President at his current weight. A woman his size and weight? Don't think so.

I don't care what he weighs, I just care what he says and thinks and does as a governor. If he was President he should just have a good VP, because his weight might be dangerously unhealthy. Secretary Clinton travels all over the world on a very vigorous schedule, as far as I know her cellulite has not been an issue in her job performance. She has also never made Star Magazine's celebrity cellulite issue.

People are physically imperfect and flawed and I think that makes the world far more interesting. Even Steven Tyler has some man boobs going on.

Fucks sake Bono. Bipartisan greater cause Jesse Helms tearing up blah blah blah, whatever... this guy explicitly equated homosexuality with child rape and beastiality only last decade, probably only shortly before that (mostly) complimentary quote. Wish he'd draw a stronger line on that kind of thing sometimes. It's not Tourette's, he's just a complete fuckwit.
