    I can't speak for all libertarians, but what I've seen in the Ron Paul movement is that we've blown our wads on failed presidential campaigns that gave us hope but not much else and then never really looked into personal financial solvency so that we could actually fund other projects. After the initial money bombs people overestimated Ron Paul's fundraising strength because the vast majority of Ron Paul supporters had not reached the FEC limits of $2,300. For the average Ron Paul supporter the real limit was more like $230 or even $23 dollars. I've seen people so broke on here that they've posted threads asking "Can somebody order me a pizza?" And truth be told, while I've never done that, I've been there. Until we figure out a way to truly help each other financially, a movement that is dependent on the generosity of working class people is going to struggle. Ron Paul moneybomb amounts were evidence of desperation for something real as opposed to evidence of a reliable funding source for liberty causes. In a way from this I can understand Donald Trump's appeal to some in the liberty movement. His campaign was in no way ever dependent upon donations. He had the billions to self fund and he is a master at media whoring. There is simply no way to media blackout someone like Donald Trump.

    I would like to clarify this, for people who are not paying attention to this matter.

    CBS didn't want to tighten control on his content when he talked about all of the controversial issues we know he talked about over the many years, week after week.

    CBS wanted to tighten up control on his content after he talked about Pizzagate.

    But that's a fake conspiracy right?

    He says his FB page will go dark (for now).

    Here is my interpretation and theory;

    It probably means that CBS wants control of the content he produces for them and also they renegotiated his contract so that he exclusively work for them but they are giving him more control and more money.

    And he asks for trust because he feels like he now has a bigger platform or he thinks the extra money he will make will help produce better content in the future when/if he leaves.

    The Pizzagate video is still on his FB page (which I thought was deleted but I guess I was wrong).
    They confronted me in the day of my calamity, but the Lord was my support.

    OMG.

    I know what's going on now. I recall very briefly hearing about #pizzagate and the massive pedophilia ring that supposedly includes LOTS of politicians and business leaders in D.C. and this pizza joint. I remember the code words (symbols, as Swann says) that people supposedly use when they go into "order."

    I just found Ben Swann's video on pizzagate as well, so everything is becoming clearer. Just finished listening to it, and I now understand where the conspiracies are coming from. I'm shocked that video is still even allowed to be viewed, or that his affiliate let him air that.

    So, what is going now since he's gone dark?

    Ben hit a nerve. Either real, or imaginary. By mentioning Podesta (i.e. Hillary - guilt by association) he pissed a lot of people in Atlanta off who watch CBS46... and a lot of other people who just do not want to believe something like this could possibility happen from those elected to our government. They think he is a "conspiracy" fringe reporter.... as far as I could tell from reading comments on a local Atlanta website discussing the subject...

    I think Ben will be justified and those people will wake up to a harsh reality check, but time will tell.
    Once you go Paul, you see through them all.

    You're right. Though I would posit that this is specifically Pizzagate related, not Hillary/Podesta related. You can see that over the past year he has many videos on his (deleted) youtube (archive) dissing Hillary, Obama, Brazile, DOJ, etc.

    My theory is that he is collaborating with the new administration and like-minded journalists, going dark as to not shine a light on the cockroaches, until Jeff Sessions is in position to order arrests.

    Sessions isn't going to be ordering any arrests of politicians. He is of Washington. They fake argue and don't go to committee hearings and things like that. But they aren't going to start putting people in jail. That's a pipe dream.
    Too bad our elected officials are not as aggressively trying to reduce the federal deficit as they are trying to strip us of our constitutional rights.

    Maybe, maybe not. I don't like dealing in absolutes when it comes to individuals anymore, and you have to admit that something is going on. Maybe Sessions just really hates pedophiles.

    Just the fact that Trump is pushing back at all against this evil system means he deserves credit. Few could have pulled off what he did this year, and now he has many of the evil interests scrambling.

    When you're a "little guy", they can just squash you like they did Ben Swann overnight. And yes, the Ron Paul revolution was squandered. The money that could have went into building the foundation for lasting success went into the pockets of political hacks. Breaks my heart just thinking about it.

    ...could a fan of ben swann, donald trump, alex jones, or ANY other 'teevee/radio/newspaper republicrat' please merely copy and paste their hero's 100 (or more) best consecutive words as to the absolutely all-controlling and hideous monetary order under which we are en$laved?

    ...(i didn't think so)...

    "Tzuday" may translate to 'Tease you day.' Just a conspiracy theory. I think he just wants us to share his stuff all at once in order push his coverage above trends which typically have little bearing on the REALITIES of our rapidly paced discourse." This is a publicity stunt and I intend to watch.

    ...he 'said' he had to go quiet
    for something he has been working on for 6 years,
    and that he'll be going quiet on "Tzuday Feb 1st"

    I am not sure if it is a wild goose chase or not, but much of the sourcing related to this whole "Pizza Gate" comes from the Wikileaks Podesta e-mail archives. If you go to the Podesta emails and conduct a search for TZU DAY, more than a couple search returns come from Burns Strider, head of "American Bridge 21st Century" which appears to be a PAC affiliated with CTR somehow – they receive most of the CTR talking points emails (CTRFriendsFamily@americanbridge.org, burns.strider@@americanbridge.org) Perhaps this TZUDAY alteration is a coded message, as much as a "pizza related handkerchief."

    His presence was not removed from CBS46.

    He's been on the air many times lately, too.

    I don't understand why we need to spread lies. The truth is sincerely significant enough.

    I'm still not sure what's happening. And his cryptic language about trusting him is odd.

    Perhaps we're looking into this too far.

    Not sure how much credit one should give this website, but if this is partially accurate (arrest will happen at some point, but maybe not "today") then I bet Ben is waiting for vindication and then will come back and say "see, my reality check was right"

    Newer video (2/14/17) with Ben Swann commenting (NOT Reality Check)

    2:06: "we, we know we are being spied on, all the time... even by..... ..... tech companies..... but they're not gonna tell you there doing it by calling you and saying 'hey, we noticed there is a problem.'"

    It won't take very long to get them home but it won't be overnight either but Iraq says they can't stay and they are coming home just like Trump said.
