DEARBORN: Ron Paul makes final push for primary WITH SLIDESHOW

DEARBORN The night before Michigans presidential primary, Dr. Ron Paul made his final push for votes here.

With a standing room only crowd at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center, Paul appealed to Arab-Americans something no other Republican candidate has done publicly using his bedrock campaign planks of individual liberty and fiscal conservatism.

We cant pay the bills. Its a debt crisis, said Paul to a roar of applause from the more than 1,200 people in the audience.

Organized by the University of Michigan-Dearborns Arab Student Union, the theme of the rally was Doctors for Paul. The crowd, however, was much more than just doctors, students or Arabs. While those groups were well-represented, there were also young families, seniors, and blue-collar types. Former ASU president Hussein Saghir, now a medical student at Michigan State University, acted as the liaison between Pauls campaign and the ASU. In 2008 when Saghir was still at UM-D, he helped arrange for Paul to speak to a group of students on campus, he said.

Ive been a supporter of Dr. Paul for a long time, but to see it come full-circle like this with what we had in 2008 and now tonight is really something, Saghir said.

Saghir took the stage following an introduction from the director of Paul’s Michigan campaign. He worked the crowd asking things like if they were ready to put an end to costly foreign wars and abolish the Federal Reserve system. Saghir was followed by Arab American News Publisher Osama Siblani, whose publication on Friday endorsed Paul forpresident.

“We believe that Dr. Paul brings to this campaign sense, sanity and sincerity,”Siblani said. “He’s the only candidate to bring us together while the rest divide us apart.”

Ron Paul: 'We're very pleased with our strategy'

10:27 p.m. EST, February 28, 2012

The Texas congressman spent the night campaigning in northern Virginia, one of 11 states holding a March 6 vote. Though he had no expectation of victory in Michigan or Arizona tonight, he told the crowd they’d still be accumulating delegates.

“Obviously we wished we could have done better,” he said later in an interview with CNN. But, he added, “we’re very pleased with our strategy.”

Paul said that in most of the states that had voted, he’s outperformed his 2008 level of support. “There’s something about this message of liberty … that’s very attractive to young people,” he said.

In Virginia only he and Mitt Romney will be on the ballot. Paul told the network that he’s focusing his efforts on the states where his resources “can be most effective,” and that his message will be “the same no matter where” he goes.

Paul did spend some of his war chest in Michigan for an ad that blasted Rick Santorum as a “fake” conservative. That led the former Pennsylvania senator to speculate that Paul and Romney had forged an alliance, a charge Paul vehemently denied.

“He just pulled that out of the air, because there’s no truth to it,” Paul said.

Ron Paul's Struggle, And The Wikileaks/Anonymous Media "Shrug"

What the news isn’t telling you today…I voted for Ron Paul in the Florida primary. But I don’t think he’ll get the nomination. The corporate broadcast media is not giving Ron Paul’s message a fair shake (okay, that’s an understatement — they’re screwing him).

The corporate broadcast media is also giving very little play to the absolutely massive document dump Wikileaks did the other day, reportedly in “cooperation” with the Anonymous hacker collective.

The leak, which includes 5 million or so e-mails from a prominent global intelligence firm, is truly shocking and dishes dirt on a wide range of Fortune 500 companies, U.S. government agencies, and (allegedly) even media outlets.

Yet the broadcast networks have done little more than mention that Wikileaks has a new release. Relatively obscure publications like Mother Jones have been the ones doing the digging and deep reporting on what’s actually revealed by the Wikileaks/Anonymous email leak, which is being dubbed the “GI Files,” or Global Intelligence Files.

On top of all that, the House passed H.R. 347 in a 388 to 3 vote yesterday. Among other things, it potentially makes peaceful protest in close proximity to government officials or property a federal offense.

Re-read that sentence.

H.R. 347 sounds Orwellian in a way that even George Orwell would have never thought possible. In this evening’s DLCast (full clip available below), I dig deeper into these — and some other — issues the corporate media has failed to cover adequately.

Ron Paul fires up supporters in Virginia as Arizona and Michigan vote

Texas Rep. Ron Paul in Springfield, Virginia

SPRINGFIELD, Va. — Taking the stage Tuesday before an over-capacity crowd gathered for event billed as a “celebration rally” for Arizona and Michigan’s presidential primaries, Rep. Ron Paul chose not to acknowledge those votes were taking place.

“I guess the revolution has arrived in Virginia!” the Texas lawmaker said to more than 1,700 shouting supporters while another 500 were unable to enter the ballroom after the fire marshal deemed it too crowded.

Mitt Romney bested rival Rick Santorum in Arizona and Michigan, one of the most competitive races of the campaign so far.

Having cut his losses early in Michigan after spending a mere three days in the state, Paul opted to spend election night near Washington so he could question Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke Wednesday when he appears before the House Financial Services Committee.

Why Michigan was so close, and how Romney won

But over the weekend Paul seemed equally lukewarm to Virginia’s primary, which offers him the unique opportunity on Super Tuesday to face off against Romney one-on-one, as they were the only two candidates to collect enough signatures for the ballot. Asked about it Sunday, Paul said he didn’t know “to what extent” he’d play in Virginia.

Paul has consistently said he is trying to amass as many delegates as he can.

“They keep asking about winning particular states in this campaign, but guess what? We’re still winning a lot of delegates!” he said to massive cheers.

Still Winless, Upbeat Ron Paul Vows to Keep Picking Up Delegates

Ron Paul may not have been a major player in tonight’s primaries in Michigan and Arizona, but he promised to continue to be noisy in his bid for the Republican presidential nomination.

The congressman, speaking at a boisterous rally in Springfield, Va., addressed the fact that his campaign continues to be winless at 0-11.

“Everyone keeps asking me about winning states,” said Paul. “We are winning delegates, and that’s what counts.”

Afterwards in an interview with CNN, the Texas congressman was more candid, saying that he wished he could have done a lot better tonight, but that he is proud of the strong support he continues to receive – especially from young people.

Paul was introduced by his son, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, who joked that he’s only there for a short time while the Transportation Safety Administration let him out.

As Ron Paul walked on stage, he wished his wife Carol a happy birthday.

Carol Paul, who celebrates her birthday on Feb. 29, stood next to her husband, embracing a bouquet of flowers, and smiled as the audience sang her “Happy Birthday.”

The congressman quickly ran through his stump speech of ending foreign wars, protecting civil liberties, and controlling the Federal Reserve.

Paul, who sits on the House Financial Services Committee, reminded the audience that Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke testifies before the committee Wednesday.

“Guess who might show up?” Paul said. “But don’t count on getting any straight answers.”

Ron Paul ignored the primaries in Arizona and Michigan Tuesday night and took his campaign to Virginia, where only he and Mitt Romney are on the March 6 ballot.

Paul teased a sometimes boisterous crowd at a Springfield banquet hall just a few miles outside of the nation’s capital. “You’re such a noisy bunch. What’s going on here?” Paul joked. “I keep saying they’re sound asleep in Washington. We have to be noisy so they hear us!”

The Texas congressman also introduced his wife of 55 years, Carol, who has a leap day birthday on Wednesday Feb. 29. She received roses while the audience sang, “Happy Birthday.”

Paul finished third in the Michigan primary with less than 12 percent of the vote, and fourth in Arizona, where he looked likely to finish with less than 10 percent of the vote. He barely acknowledged the contests in his speech.
