Crazy Ron Paulian Comment of the Day

Wingnuts • Views: 31,084

Browsing around some conspiracy-related websites and Ron Paul-related websites … actually, that’s redundant … I discovered my favorite Paulian comment of the day at a site called “Above Top Secret,” about our post on the Crazy Uncle’s scheduled appearance on the white supremacist Political Cesspool radio show: Ron Paul Was Scheduled to Appear on a White Supremacist Radio Show in 2006.

The PTB are clearly trying to discredit Ron Paul. If they can turn the public opinion of RP and make him look bad then they can take him out of the equation. If you look at all the candidates you’ll notice RP is the only Non Rothschild Zionist. The Zionists hate the fact that RP is more popular with the people than the Zionists are.

Making people look bad in the eyes of the public is something they do very well. And the problem is people are very easily manipulated into believing all their BS.

If RP wins there’s no way he’ll get into power. Regardless of how many votes he gets a Zionist will get into power first. That’s why I never vote. There’s no point. The outcome is decided ahead of time by the real leaders of America. The Rothschilds and the Rockefellers.

So this radio show crap is just another way to sway public opinion away from RP and back to the evil Zionists. And some idiots are believing in it!!

Yeah, that’s how you show 'em that Ron Paul’s no antisemite!

When you have to engage in conspiracy theories to explain why your candidate can only dominate internet and TV polls, then perhaps it's time to put the bong down and seek help.

I was reading through the comments of the uncut CNN/Ron Paul interview posted at Youtube this morning. Given this article I thought it would be appropriate to repost them here since they reflect on many of Ron Paul's fan base:

• 10/3/2001, A.P. News reported via Israel Radio (in Hebrew) Kol Yisrael an argument erupted at the Israeli cabinet weekly session between Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and his foreign Minister Shimon Peres. Peres warned Sharon that refusing American requests for a cease-fire with the Palestinians would harm Israeli interests and "turn the US against us". Sharon yelled at Peres, saying "DONT WORRY ABOUT AMERICAN PRESSURE! WE THE JEWISH PEOPLE, CONTROL AMERICA, AND THE AMERICANS KNOW IT!"

• "I am aware how almost impossible it is in this country to carry out a foreign policy not approved by the Jews.. terrific control the Jews have over the news media . I am very much concerned over the fact that the Jewish influence here is completely dominating the scene and making it almost impossible to get congress to do anything they don't approve of. The Israeli embassy is practically dictating to the congress"---Sec. of State John Foster Dulles, on p.99 of Fallen Pillars by Donald Neff

• She has one sister named Paula. Borger cites her religion as Jewish. Borger lives in Washington, D.C. with her husband, Lance Morgan, a lobbyist who works for Powell Tate and their two sons. Powell Tate is one of the same lobbyists Ron Paul is trying to get out of Washington. The media is trying to fool you!! Think people. Vote Dr. Paul

• Gloria Borger cites her religion as Jewish. Borger lives in Washington, D.C. with her husband, Lance Morgan, a lobbyist who works for Powell Tate. One of the same lobbyists that Ron Paul is trying to get out of Washington. Makes you wonder...

• SHE IS JEWISH? THAT EXPLAINS IT.

• America, GET THE ZIONISTS OUT OF YOUR COUNTRY, THEY ARE GOING TO DESTROY IT.

• Gloria Borger's husband works for: - Powell Tate is a division of Weber Shandwick​, a global public relations and communications leader and political advisory group...so basically, a bunch of rich Jewish lobbyists who would like nothing more than for Ron Paul to fall on his sword...so there is a conflict of interest here, the reporter has her interests at heart and doesn't care about the real questions or facts, which is typical of CNN anyway. LIBERTY WILL WIN - NOT ZIONISM!!! Cheers...

• typical fucking Jewish reporter...zionists must be shitting themselves that Ron Paul is gonna be the next POTUS...Israel better start making peace with their neighbours...lolz

I just looked again and now there's even more.

Okay. So...something would have to happen between the votes and the inauguration.

We're left with:

Vote tampering. A possibility. Goodness knows there have been dirty elections in America before, however, we'll need specifics.

Assassination. By whom? The CIA? The Secret Service? The Mob? I suspect this gentleman has answers to that question.

Some sort of Machiavellian scenario in which Paul is forced to decline office based on...not sure what. Grandchildren taken hostage. The negatives. Couldn't be old copies of his newsletters--we have those.

Don't think it'd really matter, if Paul became president, his would be the least impressive presidency by far. Even his own party would tell him where to stick his demands, while the Democrats would make a shitload of political capital off opposing the more insane of his policy proposals. Just pushing the gold standard alone would turn most Americans hair white.

They never bother to define how the conspiracy would actually influence events in a case like that, because an attempt to do so would force them to actually think rather than react with outrage.

Conspiracy theories generally fall apart once you have to start explaining them. Because you have to bring in the thing that generally kills all conspiracy theories: logic. Such as explaining how some shadowy cabal can simultaneously be all-powerful and yet absolutely powerless at the same time.

Most of the don't try. As Jonathan Kay pointed out in his book Among the Truthers: A Journey Through America's Growing Conspiracist Underground , most conspiracists have an unconscious "mental firewall", which divides the fantasy world of the conspiracy theory from their day-to-day reality. They do this so they can still function in society. If that firewall breaks down, though, the decompensation can lead them to lash out violently.

Which shows in Paul's Congressional record, which is that of a guy who leads nothing, proposes nothing, never sticks his neck out. He's a non-entity except for those instances where he makes a headline or two by breaking ranks with the party on some legislation that enjoys widespread party favor anyway. The rest of the time, his voting record is limited to pork-barreling for Texas/his district and voting his ideology.

For many conspiracy theorists, it is essentially like reading a good ghost story; they are trying to be entertained. The danger is that they don't recognise this motivation. Another major motivation is to simply believe that someone is control of this crazy world.
The truly terrifying reality is that our path is rudderless.

I'd found that the UFO nuts who believe that they're special somehow-- that they had contact with the aliens, that they're really smart for figuring it out, that everyone else is just sheep-- tend to be the Jew-hating ones, whereas the hippy-dippy "life is out there, man" types tend span the spectrum of humanity.

Oh, I still believe in UFOs and believe that the government isn't being entirely truthful on what they know. Even to this day, I believe something happened at Roswell that the government doesn't want us knowing about. But even I felt my mind bending in unnatural ways when it came to Jewish conspiracies and vaccination scares.

If there is, it concerned a classified military project, and not space aliens. If there is a UFO conspiracy, the most likely one is that the notion of UFOs was encouraged by the government to deflect attention from experimental military aircraft.

Some conspiracy theorists almost make me think of religious fanatics in their inability to accept that things can happen without there being some shadowy force (be it God or a cabal of some kind) pulling the strings, becoming almost violent in their refusal to acknowledge anything that goes against their "faith," and perceiving those who don't share such "faith" as being simply "blind" at best, heretics/"in on it" at worst.

This is essentially how I feel. Ron Paul unravels the entire GOP story because he actually believes everything the GOP supposedly believes in. The problem is that he actually means it, whereas the rest will roll-over for whatever the actual party mandate it.
And Ron Paul isn't just on target economically with the GOP, he is also super "pro-life" and as the racist newsletters show, also onboard with the historically racist undertones of the GOP platform.
Ron Paul is the GOP's uncomfortable moment in the mirror.

Antisemitism is a disease. Strategic bombing and a heavy dose of tanks and artillery were a good cure in the 40s. Alas, today's anti-semites are not so concentrated and a more gradual therapy regimen is necessary.

Most of the quote:

"If we want to find the God who appeared as a child, then we must dismount from the high horse of our 'enlightened' reason," he said. "... In this spirit let us celebrate the liturgy of the holy night, let us strip away our fixation on what is material, on what can be measured and grasped."

So they need a sign in front of the church that reads: "abandon all enlightened reason ye who enters here!"

Now that you mention it... I remember seeing a round plane in the Dallas Frontiers of Flight Museum...

IIRC, it was canned because jets were invented shortly after they were experimenting with it.

Vought V-173 "Flying Pancake"

The developmental V-173 made its last flight 31 March 1947. In 131.8 hours of flying over 190 flights, Zimmerman's theory of a near-vertical takeoff- and landing-capable fighter had been proven.[8] The V-173 is now part of the Smithsonian collection at the Paul E. Garber Preservation, Restoration, and Storage Facility in Silver Hill, Maryland. It is currently at the Vought Aircraft plant in Grand Prairie, Texas being restored to go back on display.

"Right now, I am looking at the tracker and I can see a dot on the satellite screen. It says that Santa, right now, is flying over Finland," Obama told a girl named Summer, and said the sleigh was full of toys.
The first lady, on vacation with President Barack Obama and their daughters in Hawaii, took part for a second time in the annual NORAD Tracks Santa program, run by the North American Aerospace Defense Command.
Another girl, Victoria, asked her if the space-age tracking technology deployed by NORAD could decipher whether Rudolph was at the head of Santa's sleigh.
"There's a little flashing light on this tracker, and the experts think that it is probably Rudolph who's leading the sleigh this year. So he's out there," Obama said.

The wife asked for a nice irish stew so I got out some lamb, potatoes, carrots, flour, beef broth and the usual suspect herbs (parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme & bay leaf) and threw it all in the crock pot at 4:30 this morning. 8 ~ 9 hours later, a nice stew to go with a good loaf of bread.

Right now I'm waiting on the sweet rolls to finish the third rise before baking so we can have home made rolls like I always to for Christmas morning.

I think that recipe was set to music:

Not really. The French Armee du Nord was a well organized, veteran force with good officers and a first rate commander. Newt's Virginia campaign basically fell off the Stupid Tree and hit every branch on the way down.

I think that recipe was set to music:

[Video]

Reminds me of another Simon and Garfunkel song:

The remarkable thing about many songs of that era is how profoundly evocative they can be, as though 40+ years can vanish in a flash and I am back there, and young again. I especially remember hearing Homeward Bound while I was trying to go to sleep one night in my quarters in Vietnam. It had been a hellish day, with heavy fire in our landing zones and 3 dustoffs (med-evac flights). We had hosed blood and other fluids out of the chopper afterward. I was clean and safe back at our base, but my eyes burned from powder smoke and the horrible smell lingered around me like a dark cloud. The song came on. I listened for a minute, then sat up on my cot and silently cried. Tough guy, hardass. Many others, I am sure, have done the same.

I am still here, all these years later, and I am very, very glad of that.

I am going to have a merry Christmas with my daughters and grandchildren. I wish all of you the same, and a happy and safe new year.

That doesn't work anyone. He can't sprout from genetically-modified corn. You see, GM foods are the key to stopping the Ronulan Invasion. And that is also the real reason why Glenn Beck hocks 'non-hybrid' seeds; Gardens planted with those seeds are to be the Ronulans' landing zones.

Soldier shot, paralyzed during welcome home party
December 24, 2011 | 4:38 pm

A soldier on leave from Afghanistan was shot and seriously injured Friday night in San Bernardino during a welcome home party in his honor, police said.

Christopher Sullivan, 22, was on leave from the Army for the holidays and attending a party when his brother and another man began arguing over football a little before midnight, San Bernardino Police Lt. Gwendolyn Waters said.

The gunman, a man in his 20s, punched Sullivan's brother, Waters said. Sullivan stepped in and the other man pulled a gun from his waistband and fired at least three shots. Two shots hit Sullivan, one in the neck and the other in the buttocks.
