aug 15, 2018 John Miskas Heroic Resistance in Charlottesville, Virginia Reading Rutherford Institute President John W. Whiteheads Monday editorial From Boston to Ferguson to Charlottesville: The Evolution of a Police State Lockdown, I wanted to find out more about an arrest Whitehead mentions took place over the weekend in his hometown of Charlottesville, Virginia. Following a link in Whiteheads editorial to a Daily Progressarticleby Allison Wrabel, I found that John Miska, a local individual who was arrested for defying some of the draconian restrictions government imposed in the city last weekend, provides a heroic example of resistance to the police state and martial law conditions about which Whitehead warns in the editorial. read on…

aug 9, 2018 Ron Paul: We Need Alternatives to Social Media Companies that Are Silencing Dissent Interviewed Tuesday at RT, libertarian communicator Ron Paul weighed in on social media companies purges this week that have affected individuals including popular talk show hostAlex Jonesand Ron Paul Institute Executive DirectorDaniel McAdams. Paul argues that purges undertaken by social media companies often are motivated by a desire to silence people challenging the status quo, instead of the purported reasons social media companies offer related to terms of service. He also chides the companies for doing the work for the NSA, or the National Security Agency, in conducting mass surveillance. read on…

The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity : Neocons …

You can always count on the neocons in Congress to ignore reality, ignore evidence, and ignore common sense in their endless drive to get us involved in another war. Last week, for example, Senators John McCain (R-AZ), Lindsey Graham (R-NC), Bob Menendez (D-NJ), and others joined up to introduce what Senator Graham called the sanctions bill from hell, aimed at applying crushing sanctions on Russia.

Senator Graham bragged that the bill would include everything but the kitchen sink in its attempt to ratchet up tensions with Russia.

Sen Cory Gardner (R-CO) bragged that the new sanctions bill includes my language requiring the State Department to determine whether Russia merits the designation of a State Sponsor of Terror.

Does he even know what the word terrorism means?

Sen Ben Cardin (D-MD) warns that the bill must be passed to strengthen our resolve against Vladimir Putins pattern of corroding democratic institutions and values around the world, a direct and growing threat to US national security.

What has Russia done that warrants kitchen sink sanctions that will crush the country and possibly designate it as a sponsor of terrorism? Sen. Menendez tells us: The Kremlin continues to attack our democracy, support a war criminal in Syria, and violate Ukraines sovereignty.

There is a big problem with these accusations on Russia: theyre based on outright lies and unproven accusations that continue to get more bizarre with each re-telling. How strange that when US Senators like Menendez demand that we stand by our NATO allies even if it means war, they attack Russia for doing the same in Syria. Is the Syrian president a war criminal, as he claims? We do know that his army is finally, with Russian and Iranian help, about to defeat ISIS and al-Qaeda, which with US backing for seven years have turned Syria into a smoking ruin. Does Menendez and his allies prefer ISIS in charge of Syria?

And how hypocritical for Menendez to talk about Russia violating Ukraines sovereignty. The unrest in Ukraine was started by the 2014 US-backed coup against an elected leader. We have that all on tape!

How is Russia attacking our democracy? Were still waiting for any real evidence that Russia was involved in our 2016 elections and intends to become involved in our 2018 elections. But that doesnt stop the propagandists, who claim with no proof that Russia was behind the election of Donald Trump.

These Senators claim that sanctions will bring the Russians to heel, but they are wrong. Sanctions are good at two things only: destroying the lives of innocent civilians and leading to war.

As I mentioned in an episode of my Liberty Report last week, even our own history shows that sanctions do lead to war and should not be taken lightly. In the run-up to US involvement in the War of 1812, the US was doing business with both France and the UK, which were at war with each other. When the UK decided that the US was favoring France in its commerce, it imposed sanctions on the US. What did Washington do in response? Declared war. Hence the War of 1812, which most Americans remember as that time when the British burned down the White House.

Recent polls show that the majority of Americans approve of President Trumps recent meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Among Republicans, a vast majority support the meeting. Perhaps a good defeat in November will wake these neocon warmongers up. Lets hope so!

aug 1, 2018 TSA Passenger Screening Could Be Eliminated at 150-plus Airports It seems that United States government actions taken in the name of security become more oppressive each year. This trend can be seen in the activities of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) that corrals people into checkpoints at airports for harassment, friskings, and warrantless searches of luggage abuse that worsens over time. For example, last year, TSA friskings were made more invasive with theintroductionof a new universal pat-down procedure. And, this week, we have the revelation of the TSAs Quiet Skies that James Bovard, in a neweditorial, sums up as a surveillance program spurring federal air marshals to target dozens of Americans each day on the flimsiest of pretexts. read on…

Wikipedia Listed Ron Paul On White Supremacists List For …

2:50 AM 07/26/2018

Kyle Perisic | Contributor

A Wikipedia editor placed one of the most influential libertarian Republicans on a list of American White Supremacists for three weeksbefore it was removed Wednesday.

An editor placed former Texas Rep. Ron Paul on the list of American white supremacists alongside some of the most notorious American neo-Nazis in American history, including American Nazi Party founderGeorge Lincoln Rockwell and former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard Don Black.

The Wikipedia edits were automatically accepted, according to the edit history on Pauls Wikipedia page. Many political figures require verification from another Wikipedia-approved editor to verify the accuracy of the edits.

Paul was added to the list on July 2, seemingly after his Twitter account which isnt run by him accidentally tweeted out a cartoon that was considered racist and anti-Semitic.

Earlier today a staff member inadvertently posted an offensive cartoon on my social media. I do not make my own social media posts and when I discovered the mistake it was immediately deleted, Paul wrote in a statementon Twitter that day.

The tweet was deleted and replaced with a picture of the words Political correctness along with theinternational prohibition sign.

The original tweet linked to a Facebook post deconstructing cultural Marxism, which many on the right agree is plaguing the country and especially college campuses.

GOP Rep. Steve King of Iowa was also included in the list of American white supremacists, according to a Wikipediaarchive.

Pauls inclusion on the list brings into question, once again, the merits of sites like Facebook, Google and YouTube utilizing an open-sourced platform as a primary source of information.(RELATED: Google Search Results Describe Justice Neil Gorsuch As A Lib Owner)

Wikipedia came under fire in late June for labeling the California Republican Partys ideology as Nazism. This subsequently led to Google search results listing Nazism as the California GOPs ideology in a sidebar widget that displays other further information.

Nazism was listed as the partys ideology for all of two minutes before it was removed and yet Vice News, which first reported the story, was able to screenshot that and run the story.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to Wikipedia and Ron Paul for comment and will update this article if and when a response is given.

The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity : Spending …

According to financial writer Simon Black, the federal government is spending approximately 52,000 dollars per second. This, not last years tax cuts, is the reason why the national debt has reached a record 21 trillion dollars, which is more than Americas gross domestic product (GDP).

Another ominous sign is that this year both Social Security and Medicare will have to draw down on their reserve funds to be able to pay benefits. The Social Security and Medicare trust funds will both soon be bankrupt, putting additional strains on the federal budget and American taxpayers.

The excessive debt caused by excessive spending will inevitably cause a major economic crisis. Yet, with a few notable exceptions, there is little to no desire in Washington to cut spending. Instead, both parties are committed to increasing spending on warfare and welfare while ignoring the looming entitlements crisis.

Examples of fiscal irresponsibility on Capitol Hill are easy to find. For instance, even though the Untied Stares is currently spending more on its military than the combined budgets of the next seven highest spending countries, Congress recently increased military spending by 82 billion dollars. This brings the total the US spends on a futile effort to police and democratize the world to 716 billion dollars. The US House has also recently passed a farm bill that increases spending by more than 3 billion dollars over the next five years. This bill does not take a step toward ending subsidies to wealthy farmers and even continues providing farm subsidies to non-famers! Pressure on Congress to increase spending on farm subsidies is likely to increase as famers becomes collateral damage in President Trumps trade war.

Many progressives are attacking the House farm bill because it makes some reforms to the SNAP (food stamp) program, even though the House version of bill increases the budget for food stamps by at least 1.7 billion dollars over the next five years!

When the economic crisis hits, there will be no choice but to cut spending and raise taxes. Of course, Congress is unlikely to raise taxes or cut benefits. Instead, it will rely on the Federal Reserve to do the dirty work via the inflation tax. The inflation tax is the worst type of tax because it is both hidden and regressive.

One of the worst features, if not the worst, of the tax reform plan is increasing the inflation tax by authorizing the use of chained CPI. Chained CPI hides inflations effects by claiming that rising prices do not harm Americans as long as they can still afford low-cost substitute goods to replace products they can no longer afford due to the Federal Reserves devaluation of the currency as if people forced to buy hamburger instead of steak are not negatively impacted by inflation.

Increasing federal debt will also put pressure on the Federal Reserve to keep interest rates low to prevent federal interest payments on the debt from skyrocketing. Eventually, the Feds monetization of the debt will lead to hyperinflation and a rejection of the dollars world reserve currency status. The question is when, not whether, the welfare-warfare state and the fiat currency system will end. Hopefully, those who know the truth will succeed in growing the liberty movement so we can convince Congress to gradually unwind the welfare-warfare state, restore a true free market in money, and stop trying to run the world, run the economy, and run our lives.

jul 25, 2018 Will Russia ‘Meddle’ to Help Democrats in November? President Trump Tweeted yesterday that the Russians may actually want to help the Democrats in the coming midterm elections because he’s been far harder on Russia than the Democrats have. More bluster or is he now running even more enthusiastically with the Beltway obsession with Russia meddling in our lives? RPI Director Daniel McAdams comments on this and on how we might actually work to fix our broken electoral system. Should President Trump pull security clearances of former senior intelligence officials? Finally, what will the fallout be from President Trump’s announcement that he will invite Russian president Putin to Washington this year… read on…

jul 23, 2018 Trump Tweets War Warning, Pompeo Wants Regime Change: US Iran Attack Coming Soon? President Trump sent out a red-hot Tweet last night threatening Iran with destruction if it does not stop threatening the US over US threats to change the Iranian regime. Round and round it goes, with the well-funded neocon think tanks pushing ever-harder for a US attack. Trump’s Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is extremely close to one of the most bellicose of these, the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, which is staffed by many of the same people who gave us the disastrous 2003 war on Iraq.

jul 21, 2018 Who is Bill Browder and Why is Putin so Interested in Him? At the now-famous Helsinki press conference with Presidents Trump and Putin the name of a former US businessman, Bill Browder, came up as a person of interest to the Russian president. Let’s make a deal, he said: you can come to Moscow and question the 12 GRU officers you accuse of hacking the DNC computers and we’ll question Bill Browder and a group of other businessmen who had done business in Moscow. And the former US ambassador to Moscow. While the usual suspects shrieked at such a deal, many wondered what was wrong with trying to get to the bottom of the indictments and “Russiagate.” So what’s the deal with Browder? RPI’s Daniel McAdams spoke to RT America about the former hedge fund operator who reportedly gave up his US citizenship to avoid US taxes and is wanted in Moscow for tax avoidance… read on…

jul 19, 2018 New Poll: What If Russophobes Held A Rally And No One Came? A new Gallup poll may spell trouble for Democrats hoping to cash in on what they believe is an anti-Russia feeling among American voters. The percentage of people who believe that Russia is a great threat to the United States is so low that it is almost unmeasurable. People are most concerned about the bad quality of government and about immigration. The elites continue to obsess about things that the average voters could not care less about. And they think this time it will pay off? More in today’s Liberty Report… read on…

Ron Paul Exposes The Human Suffering Of "Cultural Marxism"

Ron Paul KNOWS the score:Madlad Ron Paul Tweets A. Wyatt Mann Cartoon Blasting Jew Cultural Marxism

You make sense as does this gentleman:Richard B June 30, 2018 at 8:53 pm Just because the other person is bad doesnt make you good. But, is the other person bad? Maybe, maybe not. Lets talk about it and find out, using all of the available intellectual and social resources at our disposal while exercising our rights to free speech and assembly in the process. Oh, wait, we cant do that. And whos responsible, the Puritans? Theyre long gone.

In any event, when a group is condemned as morally bankrupt and another set up as morally superior one has to consider the source. Judaism passing itself off as morally superior is laughable. Its literally a religion of projection. Its guilty of every accusation it hurls at Whites, ie; Ethno-Supremacy; Its bad to say Master Race but Ok to say Chosen People (and did the Germans really say they were the Master Race, or is that itself a projection?). Its exclusive, not inclusive, its racist and bullying (Palestine! Hello!).

The irony is that you cant imagine the Jewish people feeling guilt not because theyre innocent, but because of their Myth of Innocence, which actually says in effect, We never do anything wrong. Things are done to us. When you live like that you become incapable of learning, change, and growth. Essential qualities today for any people with the pretention of wanting to be global leaders (or, to put it more baldly, to rule the world).

Which is why, though theyre certainly good at shame, blame, denial, projection, infiltration and subversion, theyre no damn good at social-management. Just look at the places they rule over. The sun never sets on their dysfunction. Its literally everywhere. And theyre calling US morally bankrupt?!

Its this amazing lack of self-awareness (another important quality needed to lead anything today, let alone an entire civilization) and incredible inability to admit when theyre wrong, about anything, that keeps them from seeing those moments when in fact they are wrong, ie; Whites are capable of feeling guilt exactly because they HAVE a conscience which Jews and many other non-White groups simply lack, as if they all have a morality chip missing in their DNA. In short, having a conscience that the other groups in general and Jews in particular lack makes Whites morally superior, not inferior.

And if Jews arent morally superior but insist on saying they are, in spite of all the evidence to the contrary, then what are they? Well aside from being inauthentic and dishonest, it makes them Psychopaths, of course!

Any one individual or group walking around acting as if theyre morally superior when theyre actually criminal psychopaths are DANGEROUS!And this is why so many times throughout history theyve had to be stopped. And its happening again now ON A GLOBAL SCALE!

No ones saying Whites are perfect. Kevins article makes it clear just how imperfect they are, though theres certainly lots of other evidence. Evidence we know about because Whites Dont Hide Their Imperfections! They actually make it a matter of public discourse so they can learn, change, and grow!No, were not saying Whites are perfect. But we are saying that Jews are dangerous and not just to Whites. But Whites have to think about themselves. The West is a towering human acheivement and Whites have nothing to apologize for. Only a people poisoned by envy and a lust for power would suggest otherwise. And such a people cant be morally superior to anyone.

Sure, Whites have made mistakes and given the accidents of history, its understanable weve made them. But we are the ONLY people in the history of the world who believe in and practice the idea of a Developing Conscience. Whereas the many peoples judging us arent even aware that thats possible or, to the extent theyre aware, desirable.

Again, we have nothing to apologize for and everything to be proud of. Were going to see more and more Whites express their justifiable irritation, and not just irritation, at constantly being judged by a people who we all know will never judge themselves, thereby revealing their hypocrisy and moral inferiority. When this happens their worst nightmare is going to turn into a daymare as they realize that the usual accusations dont work anymore.

The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity : Spending …

According to financial writer Simon Black, the federal government is spending approximately 52,000 dollars per second. This, not last years tax cuts, is the reason why the national debt has reached a record 21 trillion dollars, which is more than Americas gross domestic product (GDP).

Another ominous sign is that this year both Social Security and Medicare will have to draw down on their reserve funds to be able to pay benefits. The Social Security and Medicare trust funds will both soon be bankrupt, putting additional strains on the federal budget and American taxpayers.

The excessive debt caused by excessive spending will inevitably cause a major economic crisis. Yet, with a few notable exceptions, there is little to no desire in Washington to cut spending. Instead, both parties are committed to increasing spending on warfare and welfare while ignoring the looming entitlements crisis.

Examples of fiscal irresponsibility on Capitol Hill are easy to find. For instance, even though the Untied Stares is currently spending more on its military than the combined budgets of the next seven highest spending countries, Congress recently increased military spending by 82 billion dollars. This brings the total the US spends on a futile effort to police and democratize the world to 716 billion dollars. The US House has also recently passed a farm bill that increases spending by more than 3 billion dollars over the next five years. This bill does not take a step toward ending subsidies to wealthy farmers and even continues providing farm subsidies to non-famers! Pressure on Congress to increase spending on farm subsidies is likely to increase as famers becomes collateral damage in President Trumps trade war.

Many progressives are attacking the House farm bill because it makes some reforms to the SNAP (food stamp) program, even though the House version of bill increases the budget for food stamps by at least 1.7 billion dollars over the next five years!

When the economic crisis hits, there will be no choice but to cut spending and raise taxes. Of course, Congress is unlikely to raise taxes or cut benefits. Instead, it will rely on the Federal Reserve to do the dirty work via the inflation tax. The inflation tax is the worst type of tax because it is both hidden and regressive.

One of the worst features, if not the worst, of the tax reform plan is increasing the inflation tax by authorizing the use of chained CPI. Chained CPI hides inflations effects by claiming that rising prices do not harm Americans as long as they can still afford low-cost substitute goods to replace products they can no longer afford due to the Federal Reserves devaluation of the currency as if people forced to buy hamburger instead of steak are not negatively impacted by inflation.

Increasing federal debt will also put pressure on the Federal Reserve to keep interest rates low to prevent federal interest payments on the debt from skyrocketing. Eventually, the Feds monetization of the debt will lead to hyperinflation and a rejection of the dollars world reserve currency status. The question is when, not whether, the welfare-warfare state and the fiat currency system will end. Hopefully, those who know the truth will succeed in growing the liberty movement so we can convince Congress to gradually unwind the welfare-warfare state, restore a true free market in money, and stop trying to run the world, run the economy, and run our lives.

Ron Paul disavows racist newsletters under his name – CBS News

John Huff

Ron Paul reiterated Tuesday that he did not write a series of newsletters that appeared under his name in the 1980s and 1990s that included controversial comments about African-Americans, including a claim that “[o]rder was only restored in L.A. when it came time for the blacks to pick up their welfare checks.”

Asked by CBS News and National Journal if the newsletters are fair game on Tuesday in New Hampshire, Paul responded, “I don’t know whether fair is the right word.”

“I mean, it’s politics,” he continued. “Nobody talked about it for 20 years until they found out that the message of liberty was making progress. And everybody knows I didn’t write them, and it’s not my sentiment, so it’s sort of politics as usual.”

Writing in The New Republic in 2008, reporter James Kirchick revealed some particularly incendiary passages from the monthly newsletters, which carried names like “Ron Paul’s Freedom Report” and the “Ron Paul Political Report.” Many of the newsletters, which were mostly written in the first person and usually didn’t otherwise carry a byline, were reportedly being held in collections of extreme-right political literature.

The newsletters included a criticism of Ronald Reagan for legislation creating a federal holiday in honor of Martin Luther King Jr., who is described as a “world-class philanderer who beat up his paramours” and “seduced underage girls and boys.”

“We can thank him for our annual Hate Whitey Day,” one newsletter said of Reagan, according to Kirchick. The newsletters also claimed that AIDS sufferers “enjoy the attention and pity that comes with being sick,” expressed support for and offered advice to the “local militias now training to defend liberty” shortly before the Oklahoma City bombing, and questioned whether the 1993 World Trade Center bombing “was a setup by the Israeli Mossad.”

Kirchick revisited the newsletters in the Weekly Standard on Tuesday, writing that “Paul’s lucrative and decades-long promotion of bigotry and conspiracy theories, for which he has yet to account fully, and his continuing espousal of extremist views…should make him unwelcome at any respectable forum.”

Kirchick tied the newsletters to Paul’s willingness to appear on the radio program of conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who has reportedly accused the government of encouraging “homosexuality with chemicals so that people don’t have children.” He noted that Paul seemed open to Jones’ suggestion that the military’s NORTHCOM combatant command is “taking over” the nation.

Paul denied his involvement with the newsletters back in 2008, saying the controversial comments “are not mine and do not represent what I believe or have ever believed.”

“When I was out of Congress and practicing medicine full-time, a newsletter was published under my name that I did not edit. Several writers contributed to the product,” he said. “For over a decade, I have publicly taken moral responsibility for not paying closer attention to what went out under my name.”

In 2008, the Libertarian magazine Reason (citing libertarian activists, some close to Paul) reported that Paul’s chief ghostwriter for the newsletters was one Llewellyn Rockwell, Jr., who was Paul’s congressional chief of staff from 1978 to 1982 and a longtime Paul confident and adviser. (Rockwell denies this.) Paul and his wife were officers of Ron Paul & Associates, the now-defunct company that published the newsletters, which reportedly earned Ron Paul & Associates nearly one million dollars over one year, according to a 1993 tax document. Paul, his family and Rockwell were listed as four of the company’s 11 employees.

Paul’s campaign chairman, Jesse Benton, told Hotsheet Tuesday that “We take Ron at [his] word that he did not write” the newsletters.

“So have his constituents in Texas,” Benton continued. “We do so because everything he has worked and stood for forty years stands anathema to racism. We know that Dr. Paul stands for Liberty for all Americans.”

Asked if the issue was fair game, Benton responded, “He has answered questions about these newsletters for 20 years, but it is reasonable that he answer them again now.”

“We are confident that Americans will look to his vast, consistent and principled record, his life [as] a doctor, faithful husband and family man, and accept his answer,” he added.
