Ex-Ron Paul Aide to Schlussel: “He HATES Israel,” Banned Sympathy for 9/11 Victims/Support for US Military, Upset We Fought Nazis

By Debbie Schlussel

To all of the PaulNuts out there who argue that Ron Paul isn’t anti-Semitic or anti-Israel, just isolationist libertarian and doesn’t believe we should be involved in foreign policy, that’s just bunk.  As I pointed out previously on this site, Paul, and the two equally nutty Republican Congressmen (including Palestinian Justin Amash) who support him for President, had the opportunity to vote to end U.S. aid to HAMAS, and they voted against it, choosing instead to continue to send your tax money to HAMAS and its supporters in Gaza.  Ron Paul also proudly spoke at the openly pro-HAMAS/pro-Hezbollah Arab American Institute Leadership Conference (see the video of his pandering speech, below).  That’s aside from Paul’s 9/11 trutherism and his constant blaming of America for 9/11 and the Muslim world hating us.  It’s not to mention his constant defense of Iran, its funding of HAMAS and Hezbollah, and its acquisition of nuclear weapons.  And don’t forget how Paul happily accepted campaign contributions from the owner of the anti-Semitic, racist, neo-Nazi Stormfront site. Now, there is more.

Ron Paul Poses @ Pro-HAMAS/Hezbollah Arab American Institute Conference

Over the weekend I received a statement from Eric Dondero, a libertarian Republican, who worked for Ron Paul for 17 years.  Dondero, who now publishes the Libertarian Republican site, was Ron Paul’s personal assistant and worked on his various campaigns, etc.  He had some very disturbing things to say about Ron Paul, his open support for the Palestinians and hatred of Israel, his opposition to fighting World War II, how he asked Dondero to wear a yarmulke and other adornments to a press conference to answer charges of Paul’s anti-Semitism, etc. Dondero also shows us how unprincipled Paul is. He claimed he was against the war in Iraq, and regardless of what you think of the war in hindsight, Paul changed his vote to protect his political career. He’s not the principled libertarian he claims he is.  He’s just another political hack and opportunist, like almost everybody else in office. I don’t agree with Eric’s dismissal of the racist and anti-Semitic comments in the Ron Paul newsletters. Those are important. But so is this information from Eric. As you read Eric Dondero’s statement, remember that Eric occupied these positions in Ron Paul’s employ:

* Fmr. Senior Aide, US Cong. Ron Paul, 1997 – 2003
* Campaign Coordinator, Ron Paul for Congress, 1995/96
* National Organizer, Draft Ron Paul for President, 1991/92
* Travel Aide/Personal Asst. Ron Paul, Libertarian for President
1987/88

Here are some excerpts from the statement Eric Dondero sent me (all of the emphasis/bold-lettering was added by me):

He is . . . most certainly Anti-Israel, and Anti-Israeli in general.  He wishes the Israeli state did not exist at all.  He expressed this to me numerous times in our private conversations.  His view is that Israel is more trouble than it is worth, specifically to the America taxpayer.  He sides with the Palestinians, and supports their calls for the abolishment of the Jewish state, and the return of Israel, all of it, to the Arabs. . . .


On the incident that’s being talked about in some blog media about the campaign manager directing me to a press conference of our opponent Lefty Morris in Victoria to push back on Anti-Jewish charges from the Morris campaign, yes, that did happen.  The Victoria Advocate described the press conference very accurately.  Yes, I was asked (not forced), to attend the conference dressed in a Jewish yarlmuke, and other Jewish adornments.  [DS:  Eric Dondero's mother is Jewish, and, therefore, he is Jewish according to Jewish law, but does not identify as such, only as "half-Jewish."]

There was another incident when Ron finally agreed to a meeting with Houston Jewish Young Republicans at the Freeport office.  He berated them, and even shouted at one point, over their un-flinching support for Israel.  So, much so, that the 6 of them walked out of the office.  I was left chasing them down the hallway apologizing for my boss. . . .

Ron Paul is most assuredly an isolationist.  He denies this charge vociferously.  But I can tell you straight out, I had countless arguments/discussions with him over his personal views.  For example, he strenuously does not believe the United States had any business getting involved in fighting Hitler in WWII.  He expressed to me countless times, that “saving the Jews,” was absolutely none of our business.  When pressed, he often times brings up conspiracy theories like FDR knew about the attacks of Pearl Harbor weeks before hand, or that WWII was just “blowback,” for Woodrow Wilson’s foreign policy errors, and such.

I would challenge him, like for example, what about the instances of German U-boats attacking U.S. ships, or even landing on the coast of North Carolina or Long Island, NY.  He’d finally concede that that and only that was reason enough to counter-attack against the Nazis, not any humanitarian causes like preventing the Holocaust. . . .

There is much more information I could give you on the sheer lunacy of his foreign policy views. Let me just concentrate on one in specific. And I will state this with absolute certainty:

Ron Paul was opposed to the War in Afghanistan, and to any military reaction to the attacks of 9/11.

He did not want to vote for the resolution. He immediately stated to us staffers, me in particular, that Bush/Cheney were going to use the attacks as a precursor for “invading” Iraq. He engaged in conspiracy theories including perhaps the [9/11] attacks were coordinated with the CIA, and that the Bush administration might have known about the attacks ahead of time.  He expressed no sympathies whatsoever for those who died on 9/11, and pretty much forbade us staffers from engaging in any sort of memorial expressions, or openly asserting pro-military statements in support of the Bush administration. . . .

Ron was “under the spell” of left-anarchist and Lew Rockwell associate Joe Becker at the time, who was our legislative director. [DS: Lew Rockwell is an anti-Israel, anti-Semitic, isolationist libertarian nut.] Norm Singleton, another Lew Rockwell fanatic agreed with Joe.  All other staffers were against Ron, Joe and Norm on this, including Lizardo.  At the very last minute Ron switched his stance and voted “Yay,” much to the great relief of Jackie and I.  He never explained why, but I strongly suspected that he realized it would have been political suicide; that staunchly conservative Victoria would revolt, and the Republicans there would ensure that he would not receive the nomination for the seat in 2002.  Also, as much as I like to think that it was my yelling and screaming at Ron, that I would publicly resign if he voted “No,” I suspect it had a lot more to do with Jackie’s threat, for she WAS Victoria.  And if Jackie bolted, all of the Victoria conservatives would immediately turn on Ron, and it wouldn’t be pretty.

If you take anything from this lengthy statement, I would hope that it is this final story about the Afghanistan vote, that the liberal media chooses to completely ignore, because it doesn’t fit their template, is what you will report.

If Ron Paul should be slammed for anything, it’s not some silly remarks he’s made in the past in his Newsletters.  It’s over his simply outrageously horrendous views on foreign policy, Israel, and national security for the United States.  His near No vote on Afghanistan.  That is the big scandal.  And that is what should be given 100 times more attention from the liberal media, than this Newsletter deal.

Thanks, Eric, for having the courage to shed more light on this fraud known as Ron Paul. Republicans in Iowa (and elsewhere) who vote for this clown are doing nothing to help America and everything to make sure that Barack Obama is President for eight years instead of just four. I would vote for any of the other potential Republican candidates for President against Barack Obama. But I would NEVER vote for Ron Paul. Never. I would simply abstain in the race.

There is a reason so many kooks, neo-Nazis, Stormfront crowd thugs, and–yes–even Muslims are supporters of Ron Paul.  They know what he stands for.  And so does Eric Dondero, who was his personal aide for over a decade.

Thankfully, Ron Paul will not be the GOP nominee or President of the United States. Anyone voting for him is simply helping to elevate the respectability of this anti-American, Israel-hating, pan-Arabist, pro-Iran fraud.  And, again, they are helping to elevate the re-election chances of Barack Hussein Obama.

Here’s Ron Paul’s disgusting speech to the HAMAS and Hezbollah supporters at the Arab American Institute event dominated by Muslims.

Isn’t Ron Paul one of those nut case Libertarians who want to legalize heroin in the USA? Legalizing heroin would destroy the USA. Heroin is the most addicting drug on earth, it takes over peoples lives. What’s next, legalizing personal ownership of atom bombs?

Truth on December 26, 2011 at 2:42 pm

    No, dum-dum, he want to return the control to the states and end the federal “so-called” war on drugs that costs billions and does nothing. BTW, alcohol is a drug that is controlled at the state level.

    Real Truth on December 26, 2011 at 3:21 pm

      There are plenty of people who support local control and states’s rights who are also not closet Neo-Nazis. The people who know who Ron Paul actually is and vote for him are anti-American and worse. The others who vote for him just for his stance on drugs evidently put shooting up, smoking weed, and snorting snow above all other considerations. Such monomania is a classic symptom of drug addiction. There appear to be a few of those appearing on here today. Once they have crashed and burned, they turn to to government(SSI, Medicaid, SNAP, etc.), relatives, and private charities for the handouts they previously derided others(far more deserving) for taking. What you put in your body is the business of others to the extent that others suffer from it(drunk driving)or have to pay for it(jail, rehab, etc.) If you want to be a genuine libertarian, why not agree to accept swift retribution from any victim of your indulgences in exchange for your “right” to get stoned, drunk, etc? I rather doubt that your principles would go that far, since cowardice would most likely take hold of you if you had to face a real consequence for your actions.

      Worry01 on December 26, 2011 at 4:36 pm

    Keeping Drugs Illegal has already destroyed the USA.

    “The Latin American drug cartels have stretched their tentacles much deeper into our lives than most people believe. It’s possible they are calling the shots at all levels of government.”

    Well maybe if you like our government being run by a criminal cartel all is well.

    “We can defend ourselves”

    -Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu addressing US congress May 2011

    Ron Paul’s views are more in line with Israel’s than the rest of the entire GOP candidates.

    adrian on December 27, 2011 at 4:53 am

      adrian,

      You are assuming that Ron Paul’s stated position is his actual position. I don’t, nor does either Debbie or any other regulars here. Even before Debbie wrote this post, there was too much evidence indicating otherwise to believe that. Whatever doubt there was to our position that Ron Paul’s real position on Israel is worse than is his stated position is now shattered with this post by Debbie. Furthermore, as evidenced by what Debbie wrote and what other regular readers have written, his overall worldview is even worse than my post is indicating here.

      JeffE on December 27, 2011 at 9:27 pm

    Argument against the War on Drugs. It makes sense when you think about it.
    1. The war on drugs costs the taxpayer too much in prisons, courts, and anything related to detaining, prosecuting, or imprisoning a nonviolent user or dealer.
    2. The War on Drugs is supposed to keep illegal drugs out of children’s hands. That is not happening.
    3. The War on Drugs is supposed to make the streets safer. It actually makes them more violent, because gangs fight over territory to sell their drugs.
    4. The War on Drugs is supposed to stop drugs from getting across the border. It does not do that either,.
    5. The War on Drugs perpetuates violence in Mexico and on the border of Mexico and the United States.
    6. Protect the general welfare of society.
    7. Illegal drugs are not measured for potency and quantity. Teens are exposed to drugs that are laced or cooked up in make shift laboratories.
    8. If you believe in promoting Christian morals, then sending a person to prison is going to expose the person to a multitude of immoral influences.
    9. Violates a person’s right to freely choose how to live even though it does not violate other people’s rights.

    The only other argument that against the War on Drugs is morality.

    I believe I have shown how the War on Drugs is an absolute failure for individuals and society as a whole.

    Argument for legalizing drugs.

    1. It saves billions of dollars a year for various government entities.
    2. More money can be spent on educating children about the dangers of abusing drugs.
    3. Street gangs will lose a revenue stream that empowers them to buy illegal guns which are in turn used on the streets.
    4. The US-Mexico border becomes less violent when drugs are removed.
    5. We can offer moral support and medical assistance when a person is ready to be helped and it will cost less than prison.
    6. Less drugs on the streets for children to reach.
    7. The potency and dosage can be verified by trained professionals thereby making the person’s drug use safer. This should lead to less overdoses.
    8. Ask your friends, if drugs are legalized do you plan on getting them? Most people are going to view drug abuse like they would other abusive situations. Drugs will lead to destruction.
    9. Restores the Constitution by allowing a person to live freely and accept responsibility for their actions.

    I may have forgotten a point or two, but this is my argument for legalizing drugs. I would love to hear what your argument for keeping them illegal.

    Robert Rittenhouse on December 27, 2011 at 8:46 am

Debbie, while what you wrote in this expose is spot on and nothing new to those of who have been paying attention, it needs as great a visibility as possible to educate the uninitiated.
Ron Paul is not just a danger to the Republican Party but the United States as a whole. Regardless of whether he wins Iowa or not, just the fact that he is close enough to do so is enough for his Kool-Aid drinking robots to claim mainstream credibility for his alleged line of thinking. He is reminding me of a modern day Father Coughlin.
Keep up the excellent work and enjoy the last couple days of Chanukah! All the best.

Sanford D. Horn on December 26, 2011 at 2:59 pm

Anyone with 1% sense of JUSTICE wont like Israel.Some people agree with holocaust entirely ,some totally deny it.But for sure, medical experiments were done on children(jewish/non-jewish) that was enough a reason for fighting against Hitler & thanks Allah swt,that evil crazy man is dead.
I have all sympathies for jewish victims in Hitler’s Germany, but why should palestinian people pay for crimes committed against jewish people by historically xtian nazi jews. Crimes were committed in europe therefore europe should pay for it ,why palestinians???.Palestinians are completely innocent & had nothing to do with crimes against jews in ww2 ( Dont tell me that a ORDINARY mufti of a jerusalem mosque was telling Hitler how to fight wars). Hitler killed jews as a POLICY & not on some medieval anti jew propoganda.Why should the “JEWISH QUESTION” be answered at expense of demolishing palestinian homes?
Ask any maronite xtian if he ever felt discriminated in Middle east.Xtians go to west & gulf countries( UAE is flooded with xtians from countries like lebanon) bcoz many are well educated & dont want to be part of the conflict imposed on muslims by alien jews.
Just basing opinion on entire arab community by looking at arab version of rednecks on TV is not doing any justice. Many arab economies are booming and many gulf countries including the much hated by non muslims SAUDI ARABIA is a very efficient & well run country.
West is using Israel as FIRST LINE OF DEFENCE, against the so-called danger from arab world. With a nuclear iran ,israel is losing out its bullying trait in mid east , and Israel will shrink in every aspect in future- America will dump israel in the coming years.Just inviting xtians for pilgrimages in holy land (stolen land) wont make israel look legal bcoz its creation is illegal as well against common sense.

Ali Khan on December 26, 2011 at 3:06 pm

    the most asinine sentence you wrote, “the so-called danger from the arab world”

    newsflash: the “danger from the arab world” far exceeded the “so-called” threshold in ’48, ’67 and ’73, wouldn’t you say?

    KIRCHE on December 26, 2011 at 4:22 pm

    If Israel had never existed, both Jews and Christians in the Middle East would be well on their way to extinction. The only country in the Middle East where Christianity is growing is Israel. Many Christian Arabs such as yourself are dhimmi spear carriers for Islam. Your blind hatred of the Jews and Israel won’t save you in the end. The rise of Islamism has nothing to do with Israel everything to do with the fact the Arab Muslim masses are fascist and reactionary in character. Wake the heck up! Facts are stubborn things and all the bashing of Israel in the world won’t change them.

    NormanF on December 26, 2011 at 5:11 pm

    Addressed to Ali Khan:

    You’d be well served to read ‘The Fool’s Guide to trying to reason with the unreasonable’ with a preface by the Egyptian born Rahman Abdel-Raouf Arafat al-Qudwa al-Husseini, commonly known as Yasser Arafat, leader of the PLO. After gleaning some pertinent facts from there please research the Balfour Declaration of Nov 2nd 1917. This should fill you in on your history lapses of Palestine.

    ‘Many arab economies are booming and many gulf countries including the much hated by non muslims SAUDI ARABIA is a very efficient & well run country’
    Does your well run mean controlled by barbaric Sharia law of beheadings, limb chopping etc with the chief sport ‘stoning’where a female can’t drive a car.

    ‘Just inviting xtians for pilgrimages in holy land (stolen land) wont make israel look legal bcoz its creation is illegal as well against common sense.’

    Mr Khan, have you seen any Christians and Jews walking around Mecca and Medina lately. History will tell you that Jews used to live there historically and the land was taken by force and tagged on to Saudi Arabia, the rulers you classify as civilised with prosperous economies. Israel will be standing long after you’ve left this world whilst Christian pilgrims will continue to visit holy sites and be treated with respect, a characteristic rare in ME undemocratic countries.

    Happy Christmas to you Mr Khan.

    Eyes Wide Open on December 26, 2011 at 7:48 pm

    Ali Khan,

    You Arabs are so full of it. You want Israel to disappear from the map,and to be replaced by an Arab state called Palestine,which has never existed in the history of the world. Well,forget it,it’s not going to happen now or ever. You had your chance for an Arab state of Palestine many times,but refused because you and your people wanted and still want everything. And the Arabs who call themselves Palestinians are by no means innocent. The leader of the Palestinians met with Hitler in Berlin and was a close ally of the Nazis. The Palestinian Arabs murdered hundreds of Jews before Israel even came into existence. In one instance alone,they murdered almost 100 Jews in the most brutal ways in Hebron almost 2 decades before Israel became a nation again. I get so sick and tired of how you Arabs always whine about how mean the Israelis are to you. Nothing they have ever done compares to the kind of brutal atrocities you have committed against Israelis mainly women and children.

    ann on December 26, 2011 at 10:48 pm

Hey Ali Khan:
No one is punishing the palestinians but the palestinians themselves. They have had several opportunities for their own state and decided to hold out for the whole thing. The State of Israel exists and is not going anywhere whether the Arab neighbors acknowledge its existence or not.

fred on December 26, 2011 at 3:19 pm

Ali Khan,

So I take it that you support Ron Paul.

Also, did you enjoy reading the Palestine Post paper?

Oh, wait a minute … that was a Jewish newspaper, predecessor to the Jerusalem Post.

Thank you, Debbie. It only reinforces our previous stance not to vote for Ron Paul. He indeed won’t get the nomination, thank G-d, but these points–especially the information that new here–should definitely be made into major issues to stop his drive to achieving mainstream respectability once and for all.

JeffE on December 26, 2011 at 3:28 pm

Paul and his young supporters are NAZI ANTI-SEMITES – end of story!

76 yrar old nearing his death – wont be long you old bigot!

bill on December 26, 2011 at 3:32 pm

I hope more and more conservatives wake the hell up to fact of who Ron Paul really is and what he stands for! It seems like some folks amongst the conservative movement are like liberals during the Bush era, we all remember how the far-left was during GWB’s days, the left wing claimed such things as, “yadda yadda Anyone But Bush yadda yadda”, nowadays, some elements of the right wing are echoing the same mantra of the left by claiming this, “yadda yadda Anyone But Obama yadda yadda”. If they mean Ron Paul, then they need to take a good and deep look at Mr. Paul’s voting records, rhetoric, etc.

And this is the same Ron Paul who said that Israel created hamas (which is a LIE, Gaza created hamas, that’s where hamas’ headquarters are in Gaza NOT Israel), he doesn’t believe that islam is our enemy on “The War on Terrorism”, he also favored the Ground Zero Mosque in my hometown of New York, NY, he ridiculed and attack the protestors of the NYC Mosque as well, etc. It’s NOT rhetoric what I wrote in this message of mines, these are all PROVEN FACTS!

“A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on December 26, 2011 at 3:37 pm

What a nut job! Hopefully,that wacko won’t be elected as the nominee. His chances aren’t good but I doubt he’s going to give up now.

Ghostwriter on December 26, 2011 at 3:40 pm

My fear is that he will cut some wink-and-nod deal with Obama to run on a third-party ticket. Since Paul’s prime motivation in life seems to be hatred of Jews, I’m sure he and Obama can come to some friendly accommodation on this subject.

adam on December 26, 2011 at 3:47 pm

Bachmann still looks like the best choice out of all the knuckleheads currently in the race for POTUS.

Jarhead on December 26, 2011 at 4:03 pm

i never had any doubt that ron paul was a POS… i’ve known a couple of hardcore constitutionalists — who utter the same nonsense as paul — and they push their utopian thinking to asinine levels of insanity that produce a similar fascist/totalitarian hell as any leftist would. just a different brand of hell, but hell nonetheless.

ron paul is just as dangerous as obama. i don’t know what iowans are thinking, but the man is a hate-fileed lunatic of the first order.

i’m ready to reluctantly cast my vote for any of th RINO republicans running against obama, but i don’t think i could do so for ron paul.

KIRCHE on December 26, 2011 at 4:07 pm

Ron Paul is a damn hypocrite. He knows he wouldn’t get elected dog catcher if he didn’t bring home pork to his district,so he submits pork “requests” from his constituents and then votes against them (knowing they’ll pass). This way he gets to brag that he votes against all pork while at the same time satisfying his pork-hungry district.

Mr. Truth, drugs SHOULD be legal. It’s not the business of the gov’t what someone chooses to put in their body, no matter how harmful it is.

When Paul ran for president in 1988, most of his followers were libertarians, NOT anti-Semitic conspiracy nuts.

Unfortunately, since 2007, his movement has been heavily infiltrated with conspiracy fanatics, many of whom are anti-Semitic.

Scott on December 26, 2011 at 4:08 pm

Ron Paul the leading candidate for individual rights make it hard to be Racist. Racist is a collectivist mindset. Where does it say in the constitution we need to give Israel 3 billion a year in Aid while our country implodes unemployment soars and jobs vanish while the debt reaches into the trillions.

Debbie.. You need to do more research before you write a piece of shotty opinion and piss poor attempt at a smear of Ron Paul. He has more support from the actual members in the military by donation numbers alone then any other candidate including Obama combine. And is the only one who will end the Federal Reserve Rothschild controlled central bank which is a parasitical leech on the country.

Stephen Howard on December 26, 2011 at 4:16 pm

    research? schlussel was providing direct statements from a former ron paul insider. not good enough for you, huh? also, ron paul’s very own website — administered by one of his very own staffers — provided puh-lenty of evidence, despite the ridiculous denials by paul himself.

    KIRCHE on December 26, 2011 at 4:26 pm

    “The Federal Reserve Rothschild-controlled central bank” – the hoary meme the Jews control the world’s finances. No wonder you’re strongly attracted to and defend Ron Paul. You don’t find his anti-Semitism and racism repellent. I noticed yesterday a Ron Paul ad ran on this site and while Debbie has no control over what third party advertisers do, rest assured she will seek to prevent a recurrence in the future. For what’s its worth, the reason libertarianism is a fringe philosophy in America is due to its nutty stand on national security, foreign affairs, isolationism, etc. And mix that in with the personal leanings of people like Paul, you’ve got folks who are essentially unelectable. That’s why all of this needed to be put on the record and none too soon.

    NormanF on December 26, 2011 at 4:46 pm

    Howie, there is plenty of information out there. You just need to get your snout out of your bowl and look at it. That former Ron Paul aide was not just some disgruntled former employee speaking in a vacuum. He merely corroborated what has been in the public domain for a very long time now. You and your sort are the ones who will keep Barack Obama in office, and maybe that is your intention. If you want a more receptive audience, you should try the John Birch Society or Stormfront.

    Con Chef (NB) on December 26, 2011 at 10:44 pm

    Very well said, Stephen! The deck here is quite obviously stacked with Zionist agents, as well as those who have sold out thereto. I applaud your courage and conviction, Sir! Salute!!

    Joe P. Bartee on December 27, 2011 at 7:17 am

    Stephen Howard, when you say “The Federal Reserve Rothschild-controlled central bank”– you expose that both you and Ron Paul are liars, idiots, and anti-Semitic scum, without a doubt. People who try to say that there’s an association between the Fed and Jews, the Rothschilds, or Jewish bankers, are mainly envious of the achievements and success of Jews.

    And people who draw this illusory connection either know nothing about the Federal Reserve Bank, or are deliberately lying about it. I once was an in-charge auditor for the Federal Reserve, responsible for examining the entire internal control system, so I know a thing or two about the Fed, its organization, its reporting structure, its internal controls, and how it functions.

    The Federal Reserve is NOT controlled or even remotely influenced by the Rothschilds or any other family. Rather, the Fed consists of appointed officials from the President and is functionally controlled by the leading member banks who hold shares in the Fed. The banks that in effect control the Fed are JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Citigroup, and PNC Financial Services Group, to name some of the largest and most important. What interests do the Rothschilds have in any of these banks? Zilch, zip, nada, that’s what.

    As a matter of fact, do you know what individuals/families really DO have a major foothold in one of the most important banks in the USA and thereby has an influence over the Fed? Did you know that Al-Waleed bin Talal, the Muslim financier and backer of Islamic terrorist activities, holds the largest individual stake in a major bank in the USA? His stake in Citibank is approximately 15%!!! Fortunately, even with bin Talal’s substantial money and influence, his stake is still insufficient to exercise any practical control over the Fed.

    Ralph Adamo on December 28, 2011 at 1:59 am

Stephen Howard,

If you really think that ending the US aid to Israel will end our debt and cause us to have a balanced budget, then you are a moron who can’t even do basic math. Also, do you support the US aid to HAMAS? If so, then you also a hypocrite to boot. Also, do you have any evidence to show that either Debbie and/or former Ron Paul aide Eric Dondero are lying? … I didn’t think so. Sorry pal, but facts are stubborn things.

JeffE on December 26, 2011 at 4:41 pm

[Debbie - I would vote for any of the other
potential Republican candidates for President
against Barack Obama.]

Including Gingrich? You gave me a pretty good
smackdown recently for suggesting voting for
Gingrich, as despicable as he might be, was
justified if it would prevent another term for
Obama.

You disagreed and gave me a very good verbal
beatdown. In the end I decided you were
correct and had beaten some common sense into
me.

IAM: I would NOT vote for Gingrich in the primary and do NOT want him as the nominee, as I loathe many of his views and tight, disgusting friendship with Al Sharpton. However, I would be forced to hold my nose and vote for him against Obama. I think perhaps we misunderstood each other. I want far better than Gingrich, which is why NOW is the time to demand more. November 2012 is too late. DS

I_AM_ME on December 26, 2011 at 5:02 pm

    You need to read that more closely. She said that she would vote for any Republican oontender against Barack Obama, with the exception of Ron Paul. That is not an endorsement of Newt Gingrich. It is more like choosing whether you would rather have a broken arm or stomach cancer. Debbie’s remarks were simply a clarification of what her zero option would be if Ron Paul ever became a Republican nominee. Newt Gingrich only looks good when compared to Ron Paul, and that is hardly a compliment

    Worry01 on December 26, 2011 at 5:14 pm

      We deserve better a nominee tight with Stormfront or with Jihad Norquist.

      Its not too late to choose a more worthy candidate.

      But if Paul wins in Iowa we’ll know that morons are no respecter of ideological or partisan allegiance.

      IA Republicans are flirting with their Kardashian. Hey, Americans can show the world they’re dumb. That may be their privilege in a democracy but its a questionable one.

The real Ron Paul is NOT the Ron Paul his CrAzY supporters make him out to be. Just as DS said, he is a hack and opportunist just like most (of not all) politicians in the USA. SO he is a nutter and so are his zany followers. They think he is better than he actually is.

Just a little Ron Paul will expose him (to you) as the fraud he is. He’s a hypocrite when it comes to earmarks and as DS wrote above, his vote on the Iraq war.

On a local Conservative talk station in Boston, they played a soundbite/commercial where he is questioned by the Conservative host about Osama bin Laden and 9/11 and his moronic reply was that OBL was prolly not a liar (when they host asked him why he would support OBL over American intelligence) and since he was NOT proven a liar, that is all he would need to know about OBL’s credibility. Amazing.

And when you hear his buffonery at the debates, one can piece together that Ron Paul is an absolute nutbag. And those old newsletters do NOT diminish doubt either.

I happen to love Mike Church and his show (however I don’t get to listen anymore) but I get so distressed when I hear he’s such a RP supporter. MC knows his constitution and I don’t think he needs RP to prop him up. MC does NOT need RP.

And I don’t listen to his show BUT that crank Jerry Doyle supports him too. That is telling because even though I like Doyle on a topic NO ONE else tackled with vigor (“Shifty” Paulson) he is totally out to lunch more and more these days and just comes off as a crank minus substance. (I hear some of his show as it comes AFTER Savage…and sometimes I do not turn on my ipod right away.)

Skunky on December 26, 2011 at 5:27 pm

This bias makes me even more motivated to call for Ron Paul!

Tony on December 26, 2011 at 5:31 pm

I read Debbie’s site everyday, a big fan. the only thing about ron paul that concerns me is his support of hamas-voting for that money, not a non-interventionist action. also the vid you posted is typical paul- take away the setting. your problem is with the Arab American Institute. there is nothing disgusting about the speech. Im concerned debbie is more pro israel than pro american. I know that is inflammatory-she has stated she is all American.What other candidate will do what needs doing to turn us around? all others is just a slower slide. I like bachman but she is in the end pro military complex. Im not for or against Israel, they have seeded there own downfall from within, and Paul’s willingness to set up talks with palestine is another strike against him as far as im concerned-they need to get away from usa interference -that’s another topic. all your links- I see nothing negative- where is the pro Iran? anti-american? (saying there is a cause to 911 is supposed to be self hating ?- oh please- childish reasoning,) sorry- i am anti muslim sorry sue me- but not wanting to bomb them does not make me for them. though i would of supported bombing Afghanistan and Iraq and gotten immediately out! no one pokes us in the eye period! but to base our country policy on the actions of islamic crazies is stupid- they are small- why we spending blood on them-if they act up take them out by air simple- why give russia and china a monopoly on that market?why encourage those countries isolationism when we can trade with them and undermine from within with capitalism. I admit I have concerns- like in Lebanon- did we trade with the Christians there arms- did we give vocal support before the muslims took over in their killing spree? Its obvious i’m confused on foreign policy if confused do nothing— my concern is domestic- ron paul wins hands down- what has bush accomplished? stopped Iran going nuclear? no north Korea? no is there more Islamic states? yes, will Pakistan and turkey be one too soon? yes. we need a strong economy and a free country to battle whats coming – i dont think a few years of non-intervention will hurt-considering how powerful the military complex is I doubt paul will have much effect but he will in domestic for growth in economy and reducing the size of gov.- but only if we get the senate and only if we can reduce the rino’s.

finally the man who wrote this letter was fired by ron paul and also ran against him.

markcon on December 26, 2011 at 5:54 pm

Hamas was a counter balance to the PLO, you ignorant, self gratifying Anti American loons. Stop getitng your news from Fox, Cnn, Msnbc and pick up some books…..Ron Paul is LIBERTY DEFINED. The rest are globalist bankster controlled. Debbie?…LOL

Jules on December 26, 2011 at 5:59 pm

    Yeah, Hamas was a counterbalance to the PLO? How do you figure that? Also, Hamas in its charter is quite plain about its desire to eliminate the State of Israel. No one needs to view Fox News, which Debbie is no fan of anyway(try reading previous posts), to see what Hamas and the PLO are about. You can go back to your closet Mustafa.

    Worry01 on December 26, 2011 at 6:41 pm

    Jules, judging from you’re moronic message I’m assuming you were at the “Occupy demonstration” in Omaha, Nebraska two months ago? The reason why I said that is because there’s a youtube video of Occtard protestors in Omaha, NE who happen to be “Ron Paul” (the extreme far-right) fans, and they’ve said the same rhetoric of “yadda yadda the bankers are controlling the US economy yadda yadda”. To be honest with all of you, I believe Ron Paul is a little worst than Obama and you all know that I am NOT no fan of Barack Obama!

    Also Jules, since you claimed that hamas is a counter organization to the PLO, do you have the same tone as Paul by assuming that hamas was invented by the Israeli government? We all know who hamas is and what they stand for (worldwide terrorism, nefarious deals, bidding, etc.) so you don’t need to lecture any of us here about hamas.

Dtom on December 26, 2011 at 6:14 pm

Freedom… with the modern Nazis. If Ron Paul had been President in the 1940s, we’d be living in thrall to the Japanese Empire today.

The fact people are prepared to embrace and vote for him b/c and not in spite of anti-American, pan-Islamist and anti-Semitic and anti-Israel views says all we need to know.

All of the other GOP candidates have their flaws but they are not complete kooks. Keep telling yourself a bigot is “liberty-defined.”

Ron Paul is neither a conservative, a mainstream American or a patriot.

NormanF on December 26, 2011 at 6:14 pm

Jules,

Since when was HAMAS ever pro-American, you ignorant, self gratifying, Paulnut?

In any case, you probably missed this story:

As Debbie has shown here, corroborated by what was already known about him, Paul is NOT Liberty Defined. But Debbie is.

JeffE on December 26, 2011 at 6:20 pm

With all the infighting in the GOP, Obama will look like a Champion. So I am already resigned to the fact that Obama will be in for four more years. After Herman Cain was butchered by the MSM, I could care less. Paul won’t win and since he will he see all the knives stuck in his back then he and his followers will run on the third party ticket. Oh well, just enough to F*ck over the Republican party. PAUL will permanently break off that 15% away from the GOP and they will go Libertarian.
Basically this is getting personal with Paul voters versus the Conservative wing. They can’t stand each other at this point. This will be worse than Hillary versus Obama voters. Just wait the MSM will allow the Ron Paul supporters to vent. They will fan the flames.
I vote in California in June and if Bachman is on the ticket I will vote her but she will be done after Iowa. But I suppose Ron Paul will do a Ralph Nader and play spoiler.

CaliforniaScreaming on December 26, 2011 at 7:12 pm

There’s no one worth voting for in 2012. At least someone who can win.

I have a feeling Paul is the latest GOP Flavor Of The Month. There’s no one who is widely popular and who every one in the party supports.

For me, its NOTA rather than the lesser of two evils.

And no, I will not ever be voting for Paul.

NormanF on December 26, 2011 at 7:33 pm

CS I think I feel exactly as you do.

The Obama twist machine is working. It is utterly laughable and facts EASILY refute his constant lies and schemes BUT you prolly know that the Republican Party does NOT have the cojones to fight to win.

Look at the RNC. STILL not wanting to take Obama on. PATHETIC!

Look at John Boehner and the House. They certainly do not know a THING about fighting dirty like the Dems do. You mentioned Obama and Hillary but let me add to your wise note: The Dems ALWAYS come together no matter how filthy they get with each other. Even Hillary and her cankles are in the Obama cabinet.

The Dems fight to the end. The Republicans (contrary to the Liberal meme) could not beat a 2 year old in a fist fight. They lack cojones 100%. And they are absolutely frightened of the Democratic machine. It does not matter if on facts alone, the Republicans could wipe the floor with Democrat thinking. They never leave the gate out of fear. And the Dems KNOW that and run with it all the way to the finish line!

And lastly, Herman Cain. Did you see how the Republicans failed to back him up? They did NOT fight for him but wanted him to give up because AGAIN…frightened wimps. It is disgusting. As far as I am concerned all but PERHAPS the last women in the Cain deluge was fake, fake, fake. An assassination of character courtesy of David Axelrod and the shameful Dems. And even the CONSERVATIVE talking heads who knew it was dirty tricks with ZERO substantiation wanted him OUT and climbed on the beat him down bandwagon. I have never been so disgusted by such open stupidity and abandonment on the Conservative side in my life!

I can distinctly remember the farce that was the Edwards campaign and his affair with Lisa Druck BUT the MSM ignored it and I waited EVERYDAY for the dam to burst. You know what happened there. And the Dems had his back even though they knew he was stealing from Bunny Mellon and “kicking it” with Lisa/Rielle. The news did not break until WAAAAAAAAY after he exited the campaign.

I will NEVER forget the dentureless ballessness of the Republican party this campaign season. Even with that crypto-Socialist at the helm and wreaking us they still fight like wimps. It’s absolutely crazy-making!

And like you I am expecting the Zero to win. And that will be the beginning of the end but Americans on their own will have voted for their own destruction and the lack of leadership they deserve. It will be more than a crying shame!

Jarhead on December 26, 2011 at 8:16 pm

America did not and never would have entered WW2 in order to save European Jews ( or any other ethnic group). What is astounding is not that Ron Paul finds this acceptable, but that the young people in today’s media find it so hard to understand. The Jews in Europe were not a vital American interest. Another country sinking US ships may be. It is depressing that younf people these days do not understand things which are self-evident to older people, especially ones of Dr. Paul’s generation.

robert on December 26, 2011 at 9:50 pm

The GOP is running scared because Ron Paul is doing well and is a real threat to the military-industrial empire. Ron Paul is not an Isolationist, he is a noninterventionalist and I have news for you: The Founding Fathers were noninterventionalists as well!
“If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.” – James Madison

“War has been avoided from a due sense of the miseries, and the demoralization it produces, and of the superior blessings of a state of peace and friendship with all mankind.” – Thomas Jefferson

“Never was so much false arithmetic employed on any subject, as that which has been employed to persuade nations that it is their interest to go to war.” – Thomas Jefferson

“There was never a good war or a bad peace.” – Benjamin Franklin

“Preparation for war is a constant stimulus to suspicion and ill will.” – James Monroe

“The fiery and destructive passions of war reign in the human breast with much more powerful sway than the mild and beneficent sentiments of peace.” – Alexander Hamilton

“My first wish is to see this plague of mankind, war, banished from the earth.” – George Washington

“Of all the enemies to public liberty, war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debt and taxes and armies are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. In war, too, the discretionary power of the Executive is extended; its influence in dealing out offices, honors, and emoluments is multiplied; and all the means of seducing the minds, are added to those of subduing the force, of the people…
[There is also an] inequality of fortunes, and the opportunities of fraud, growing out of a state of war, and….degeneracy of manners and morals….No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.” — James Madison

“War is the common harvest of all those who participate in the division and expenditure of public money, in all countries. It is the art of conquering at home: the object of it is an increase of revenue: and as revenue cannot be increased without taxes, a pretence must be made for expenditures. In reviewing the history of the English Government, its wars and its taxes, a bystander, not blinded by prejudice, nor warped by interest, would declare, that taxes were not raised to carry on wars, but that wars were raised to carry on taxes.” –Thomas Paine, Rights of Man, Part 1

“It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world… As avenues to foreign influence in innumerable ways, such attachments are particularly alarming to the truly enlightened and independent Patriot. How many opportunities do they afford to tamper with domestic factions, to practise the arts of seduction, to mislead public opinion, to influence or awe the Public Councils… Harmony, liberal intercourse with all nations, are recommended by policy, humanity, and interest. But even our commercial policy should hold an equal and impartial hand; neither seeking nor granting exclusive favors or preferences…constantly keeping in view, that it is folly in one nation to look for disinterested favors from another; that it must pay with a portion of its independence for whatever it may accept under that character; that, by such acceptance, it may place itself in the condition of having given equivalents for nominal favors, and yet of being reproached with ingratitude for not giving more. There can be no greater error than to expect or calculate upon real favors from nation to nation. It is an illusion, which experience must cure, which a just pride ought to discard.”

-George Washington’s Farewell Address, September 17, 1796

The Founding Fathers on the Constitution’s War Power

Alexander Hamilton: “The President is to be commander-in-chief of the army and navy of the United States. . . . It would amount to nothing more than the supreme command and direction of the military and naval forces, as first General and Admiral of the Confederacy; while that of the British king extends to the declaring of war and the raising and regulating of fleets and armies, — all of which by the Constitution under consideration, would appertain to the legislature.” (The Federalist, 69, 1788.)

“. . . .’The Congress shall have the power to declare war’; the plain meaning of which is, that it is the peculiar and exclusive duty of Congress, when the nation is at peace, to change that state into a state of war. . . .” (C. 1801.)

* * *

Thomas Jefferson: “We have already given in example one effectual check to the dog of war by transferring the power of letting him loose from the Executive to the Legislative body. . . .” (Letter to Madison, 1789.)

“Considering that Congress alone is constitutionally invested with the power of changing our condition from peace to war, I have thought it my duty to await their authority for using force in any degree which could be avoided.” (Message to Congress, 1805.)

* * *
James Madison: “. . . The power to declare war, including the power of judging the causes of war, is fully and exclusively vested in the legislature . . . the executive has no right, in any case, to decide the question, whether there is or is not cause for declaring war.” (1793.)

“The constitution supposes, what the History of all Governments demonstrates, that the Executive is the branch of power most interested in war, and most prone to it. It has accordingly with studied care vested the question of war to the Legislature.” (Letter to Jefferson, c. 1798.)

* * *

William Paterson framer and Supreme Court justice): “. . . It is the exclusive province of congress to change a state of peace into a state of war.” (United States v. Smith, 1806.)

* * *
George Washington: “The constitution vests the power of declaring war in Congress; therefore no offensive expedition of importance can be undertaken until after they shall have deliberated upon the subject and authorized such a measure.” (1793.)

* * * * *

James Wilson: (framer and ratifier): “This system will not hurry us into war; it is calculated to guard against it. It will not be in the power of a single man, or a single body of men, to involve us in such distress; for the important power of declaring war is vested in the legislature at large. . . .” (To the Pennsylvania ratifying convention, 1787.)

Mike on December 27, 2011 at 1:08 am

The problem of Mr. Ron Paul in respect to Israel follows from his greater problem in respect to America – known even prior to the revelation of Mr. Dondero.

Mr. Paul negates the exclusive Judeo-Christian national identity of America! Mr. Paul’s “understanding” of the US Constitution is no different than the claims of the Lefts as though America is not specifically Christian nation, but also islamic (and whatever in the world) nation. As though the 1st Amendment protects islam in America giving islam a free pass for proselytization.

In his speeches Ron Dhimmy Paul demonstrated himself as an islamic apologist, who gladly paves the way for islamization of America even more! The so called non-interventionist Mr. Paul has nothing against intervention of islam into the US by every mean.

This – and exactly this – makes Ron Dhimmy Paul unfit for representing America. His negligence to Israel is a consequence of his misunderstanding of the American national identity and mission.

ANYONE who puts the interests of another country before those of the U.S.A. is a Traitor, and the Nation State of Israel is no exception! It’s as if to say that anyone who refuses to give Israel a blank check, and pledge our children’s lives to protecting them while they conduct their Genocidal Expansionist Policy against the Palestinians, is an evil anti-Semitic Nazi racist who supports terrorism!

Case in point: Just this week, Israel was caught red handed attempting to sell a shipment of OUR most sophisticated ballistic missile defense systems, the New Generation Patriot Missiles, to Communist China! Said shipment was intercepted in Finland where it has been seized. We, the U.S. Taxpayers, donated these weapons to Israel, who in turn has attempted to profit by selling them to one of our most formidable adversaries.

http://www.awareandprepare.com/patriot-missiles-israel-sold-to-china-seized-in-finland/

Dr. Paul is the only candidate who is a proven Patriot! As a well established twelve term member of Congress, he has consistently honored his Constitutional Oath, without exception. Dr. Paul is a man of redoubtable character, thus the only angle left to his detractors is resorting to baseless character assassination such as we’re witnessing here.

As for those of you who are attempting to hijack this Patriot movement, you have grossly underestimated our intelligence. As for those of you who are buying into their scheme, understand that YOU are allowing yourselves to be manipulated by malignant agents who represent a Hostile Foreign Government with whom we DO NOT have a formal treaty of any kind!

Joe P. Bartee on December 27, 2011 at 7:30 am

    Joe Bartee, you are yet another liar and an anti-Semite, which is no surprise, considering you are also a Ron Paul supporter. You claims that “Israel was caught red handed attempting to sell a shipment of OUR most sophisticated ballistic missile defense systems, the New Generation Patriot Missiles, to Communist China!” WRONG. Israel was NOT involved at all, and Ron Paul and his lying supporters have just made up another lie. GERMANY, not Israel, was the SOURCE of the Raytheon weaponry. Of course, the Ron Paul liars don’t let facts like that get in the way of good anti-Semitic canard. So they make up BULL and claims that Israel is really behind the whole thing, and that Israel just has Germany on a puppet string.

    You and Ron Paul are just disgusting, lying Nazis, and you think that by repeating your lies on the many anti-Semitic websites that your lies will be believed.

    Ralph Adamo on December 28, 2011 at 2:18 am

Ron Paul’s video shows why he is popular. Americans are tired of spending treasure and lives in oversees adventures. Why are we still in Europe and South Korea? Both areas are wealthy enough to defend themselves. Clinton’s intervention against Serbia now has led to more Muslim power in Europe. Bush’s Iraq War has made Iran more dangerous to the world, particularly Israel. The Arab Spring and the toppling of Ghadafi engineered in part by us has destabilized the region and will lead to a war with Israel (as intended by Obama). Our military presence in the Middle East may be used to keep Israel from defending itself. Interventionist presidents such as Clinton, Bush and Obama have done more to endanger Israelis than Ron Paul would ever do.

http://www.republicmagazine.com/news/the-racist-newsletter-gambit-revisited-the-smearbund-escalates-its-assault-on-ron-paul.html
“The collectivist smearbund revives their tired, desperate gambit
“For decades, as a private citizen, activist, and elected representative, Ron Paul has espoused and lived by a philosophy of individual liberty protected by law. No public figure in recent memory has more consistently preached and practiced the non-aggression axiom – more properly called the Golden Rule – than Dr. Paul. In political terms, this means the categorical rejection of aggressive violence, including state-licensed coercion.

His fidelity to principle has entailed a considerable degree of personal sacrifice: As a private obstetrician, long before he was dragged reluctantly into politics, Paul refused to accept government subsidies through Medicare or Medicaid. He also refused to have anything to do with abortion – thereby displaying the same unqualified respect for the sanctity of human life that led him to become an outspoken opponent of war, and a proponent of abolishing the death penalty….

…Ron Paul, a guileless and principled man, has seen his reputation come under pitiless assault because he has adamantly refused to endorse genocide in Iraq, or aggressive war anywhere. According to the canons of collectivist piety, bombs and drones may break our bones, but only politically incorrect words can hurt us.” – William N. Grigg

Debbie Schlussel – After having read many of your biased, unprincipled, immature, hate filled and slanderous commentaries throughout the years I take much of what you post with a grain of salt.

SovereignMary on December 27, 2011 at 8:55 am

    “After having read many of your biased, unprincipled, immature, hate filled and slanderous commentaries throughout the years I take much of what you post with a grain of salt.”

    WTF? Typical of you Ron Paul hacks, you Ron Paul lackeys are just as terrible as Obama supporters, and to think of it I don’t who worse, Obama supporters or Paul supporters? Mary, in you’re BS comment you said that Debbie is biased, if you think the woman is “biased” then how come over the years numerous bloggers, pundits, etc. have plagarized off of her, stolen her work and NEVER gave her any credit for originally writing the story! DS reports the investigative FACTS!

    Now you said she’s immature? Really, as I’ve said, in the last paragraph, how come all right wing bloggers have copied off of her, stolen her work, etc. if she’s immature to you? Try answer my question Mary and think about it, think before you comment.

    Now you also said hate filled? WTF! So let me get this straight, a former Ron Paul employee during weekend told Ms. Schlussel all of the facts of Ron Paul and what he stands for, represents, etc. And you’re considering “proven facts” as hate-filled? You need to get you’re head straight Mary, you sound exactly like muslim-trolls, dhimmi-trolls and far-left trolls that once in a while comment here, I won’t be surprised if you happen to share the same principles as them?

    Now you said that DS made slanderous commentaries? Really, if Ms. Schlussel has written alot of slanderous articles over the years, don’t you think she would’ve been sued for defamation/libel from the get-go? Truth is is that Debbie Schlussel has NEVER been sued for defamation/libel, and if you’re considering Sean Hannity’s Freedom Concert scams as slanderous, ask yourself this Mary, why didn’t Hannity do his so-called concerts this past summer? Truth was that Debbie was RIGHT from the start about Hannity’s fraudulant concert(s), and she’s NEVER typed anything slanderous, you’re being LIED to by far-right and far-left sources who uses all sorts of propaganda and conspiracy theories against Ms. Schlussel!

Eric Dondero, the real person, is a former aide to Congressman Ron Paul who was fired and who now actively campaigns against Ron Paul

SovereignMary on December 27, 2011 at 9:06 am

    SovereignMary,

    Yes, Eric Dondero is campaigning against Ron Paul. In fact, one of Debbie’s links above makes that plain enough. That one is easy to explain–it’s for the reasons that Debbie reported above. As for your claim that he was fired, even if that is true–which I doubt–what does this have to do with the price of tea in China? It’s possible that the reason why Ron Paul fired Eric Dondero is because the latter had one too many arguments with the former on matters that Debbie reported above. But whether he was fired or if he quit is irrelevant. Either Eric Dondero is telling the truth or he is not. You have shown no evidence indicating that he is not.

    JeffE on December 27, 2011 at 10:28 pm

If Ron Paul thinks that the US entered WWII to save the Jews, he’s a bigger ignoramus than one previously thought. The US entered the war in response to Pearl Harbor, and it was Germany, which honoring its alliance w/ Japan, declared war on the US following the US declaration of war on Japan.

I agree w/ Worry01′s first post above. I consider myself more of a Libertarian than a Conservative, although I don’t support the legalization of drugs. But all the conspiracy theories that too many Libertarians buy into, including several Liberal memes, just makes the entire philosophy look like a fringe one. Their concepts of national security, foreign affairs, isolationism would make sense if only they made a line item exception of Muslims to the rule.

Those above who were arguing against foreign aid to Israel miss the point that the bulk of US aid goes to Islamic enemies, such as Egypt, Pakistan, Iraq, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia(!), and a whole bunch of others. If these clowns were consistent, they’d at least support abolishing foreign aid to all these countries.

http://uniteordie.tumblr.com/post/14824027903/a-former-ron-paul-staffer-has-written-a-long-statement

” This is well-worth reading. Eric Dondero, a former personal assistant and senior aide to Ron Paul, has written a lengthy statement about his former boss, and what kind of guy he is. He covers a lot of ground, and moves well beyond the questions of whether Paul is racist (“In short, no”) or homophobic (“Well, yes and no”). Dondero takes particular umbrage with Paul’s foreign policy views, as well as a widely-unreported incident regarding one Nadia Hayes, a former Paul campaign manager who, Dondero implies, was framed for embezzlement by other Paul staffers. It’s a fascinating firsthand account of Paul and, in its own odd way, one of the better political profiles we’ve read in a while.

Actually this is a worthless read, and not worth your time. Eric Dondero was FIRED by Ron Paul… he then spent the better part of a year attempting to slander him on message boards and comment sections of articles. He made a rather feeble attempt to oppose Paul in the primary for his Congressional seat, however the lack of support for his candidacy was so non-existent that his “campaign” folded after just one week… since then Dondero has continued to troll Ron Paul articles, and is well known amongst those who read Reason’s website as complete clown.”

SovereignMary on December 27, 2011 at 9:11 am

    SovereignMary,

    I read your link. And yes, it says what you said that it said. And your point is … ? What I wrote to you above on December 27, 2011 at 10:28 pm, also applies to your blog link on whether or not Eric Dondero was fired. And what I wrote above in that same post concerning about its relevancy also applies here as well.

    JeffE on December 27, 2011 at 10:36 pm

      One more thing, SovereignMary:

      On your claim that Eric Dondero was fired, see the post by jdawg on December 27, 2011 at 8:42 pm (click on “Newer Comments”, then scroll down to the final post). I did not see that post at the time that I wrote by previous two posts to you.

So we are left with second tier candidates to choose from. I will probably just vote the way Debbie sees it next November.

I don’t agree with all Debbie’s assessments about Ron Paul followers. They have seen a FAILED GOP. They can’t wait any longer. There are many things I agree with these supporters. The Iraq War wasn’t a success. It wasn’t worth the $1trillion+ price tag. And for what, so Iran can leverage control over Iraq. I didn’t agree with the Bank bailouts. I dont agree with defending crooked capitalism. I don’t agree with free trade and trade with China. Ron Paul has been direct opposition with the Karl Rove Republican. The people who are true Libertarians see the world differently than Conservatives. I don’t agree with Ron Paul’s views on foreign policy. It is not practical. It assumes Islam has equal motives but he is sadly wrong.

    CS I agree with everything you listed and I never have been in the Ron Paul corner. He is not the only Libertarian alive. I don’t even like most Libertarians. They are Liberals that know a lot about fiscal politics (and are smart enough to see the reason behind it) but then fall off the edge on social politics and isolationism.

    Ron Paul is *ONLY* running as a Republican because he knows he can never get as far as he has IF he runs under Libertarian. Libertarians in an election are Losertarians. The math says they will NEVER win and Paul is smart enough to know this. But he is NOT a Republican but one in name only.

    If more REAL Conservatives were Constitutionalists, you’d see Paul’s CrAzEd following lessen. Surely there has to be more TRUE Constitutionalists than the default guy: Ron Paul?

    Mike Church does NOT need Ron Paul and neither do you. I agreed with all you believed in and I will NEVER follow Ron Paul. He’s a nutter and his stupid nutter fans are even nuttier!!!

On previous post i meant to finish:
Debbie, if we call into question all the Ron Paul supporters as nuts do you think we have any chance of defeating Obama? Making this personal will divorce good Libertarians away from the GOP. Hopefully I am wrong. But I have friends that are Ron Paul supporters and they very independent minded. A few used to be hard right Conservatives and became that way because of a failed GOP. I think the party failed them and now that is why they have splintered. I don’t think they are all nuts. Not all Ron Paul supporters agree 100% with his foreign policy, but throwing the nut label isn’t going to help defeat Obama.

Ron Paul is one of us, he’s not bought like the rest of the candidates! He’s got my vote even if I have to write him in!

Heather K. on December 27, 2011 at 10:26 am

You status quo Wall Street bought establishment war mongering crony capitalist neo-conservatives are pissing your pants. Your transparency is pathetic. I will picture your face when I select Ron Paul on the ballot or write him in. Thanks for reinforcing that I’ve made the right decision.

Wendi on December 27, 2011 at 11:21 am

    LOLOL! You nutter Paul-bots will be ONLY writing “Ron Paul” and “Zog” on your bedroom walls in your own caca.

    And the anti-semitism oozes out of all y’all! It does not take much and you can NEVER hold it back.

    Your own nuttiness will shine right through!

Paulbots, Paulbots, Everywhere
And all their brains did shrink
Paulbots, Paulbots, Everywhere
The US will surely sink

Hey Paulbots, better brush up on your spanish and arabic, you’re gonna need it. Not matter how you loons put it, that moron wants open borders.

Jarhead on December 27, 2011 at 11:56 am

Jarhead, I won’t be surprised if Congressman Paul supports open borders and is pro-Amnesty for illegal-aliens? I’ve studied spanish when I was in JHS as a pre-adolescent, and if I marry or date an arabic female, I won’t mind if I learn arabic (afterall Jarhead, Debbie speaks fluent arabic), and I know not all arabic people speaks arabic, just as not all arabic people are muslims.
