Posted on 04/26/2011 12:11:05 AM PDT by RobinMasters
Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) told Sean Hannity tonight that he will announce his intent to run for President of the United States tomorrow.
Ron Paul also praised notorious anti-Semite Michael Scheuer as someone he respects on foreign policy. And, of course, Ron Paul still blames the United States for Islamic extremism.

Anyone who thinks that we are the “cause” of Islamic violence is flat out wrong. However, as someone who did 3 tours in Iraq, I have no love for the foreign policy of the last decade. Even when we have done the right thing, we have done it the wrong way. There is some hope that things will turn around in the Middle East, but there is also the very real possibility that every one of the failing dictatorships currently under duress will fall to religious extremists. I don’t think that is a net positive for my future grandchildren.
is the sexy female in skimpy clothing responsible for the rapist raping her? Ron Paul says yes
Someone tell the CIA they’ve been agreeing with Ron Paul about blowback, quick.
Didn’t Ron Paul name his kid “Rand” after Ayn Rand? Is this the position Randists take with respect to Islamic extremism? That it’s America’s fault?
“Didnt Ron Paul name his kid Rand after Ayn Rand?”
His first name is really Randall (spelling?), but his wife began calling him Rand.
Common misconception, but no, he is not named after Ayn Rand, it actually happens to be a coincidence.
Earlier this month he was wasting taxpayers' money summarizing an Ayn Rand novel to the Energy and Natural Resources Committee Hearing.
Was it part of a filibuster? I have his contact address - I could pass it on if you’d like to write him a letter.
Silly question. I’ll read what you write more carefully before flippantly responding next time. Do you have a video link or something? I’ll take a look myself.
I got no sound at the moment so I'm not sure, but I think it's this one.
Thanks, having a look now.
It wasn’t that bad, but it was dull and didn’t seem to serve the rest of what he was saying, which I don’t see anything to take issue with. Less than a minute of a book I probably don’t have to read now - ‘Anthem’ sounds as ham-handed as the rest of her writing was.
What were the chances that Ron Paul was going to become less crazy?
His followers treat him as some sort of messiah...
A little crazy is too much crazy for the top job...
Ron Paul is a nut!
Endless drivel on trutherism, whack conspiracies, gold standard soapboxes
Here's the winning GOP ticket Trump/Paul < / S >
It is interesting that Ron Paul bases his entire philosophy on the global Islamic insurgency on the opinions of Michael Sheuer. Michael Sheuer epitomizes all that is wrong with America’s bureaucratized counterterrorism apparatus. First of all, he broke longstanding CIA regulations at the encouragement of his politicized superiors to write a book while in active service. This alone makes him a scumbag in my book. Thousands of honorable CIA operators could have done the same, but none did. There is a reason. It’s called honor. Second, Sheuer had a uniquely disturbing career in the CIA. A career analyst with no field experience, he was somehow allowed to become a case officer and eventually found himself in charge of the CIA unit tasked with killing or capturing Bin Laden. He failed miserably. Moreover, if you actually read his work, it is readily apparent that Sheuer has at best a superficial level of knowledge of Islamic threat doctrine. He is appallingly ignorant for someone who was in the position he was in. This has resulted in his belief that we are only being attacked because of things we have done and especially for our support for Israel.
I ask the members of Free Republic:
Is Jemmaah Islamiya attempting to establish an Islamic state in Indonesia because the US supports Israel?
Are the Chechyan jihadists waging Jihad against Russia because the US supports Israel?
Is Abu Sayyef attempting to establish an Islamic state on Mindanao because the US supports Israel?
Are Jihadists attempting to establish an Islamic state in southern Thailand because the US supports Israel?
Have Nigerian Jihadists attacked innocent Christians repeatedly because the US supports Israel?
Is Al Shabaad conducting terrorist attacks in Kenya and Somalia on innocent civilians because the US supports Israel?
Are Jihadists attempting to create an Islamic state in India’s Kashmir because the US supports Israel?
Have Jihadists killed thousands in attacks on innocent civilians in Morocco, Algeria, Argentina, Brazil, the UK, Spain, Jordan and Bangladesh because the US supports Israel?
Are young Jihadis rioting in France because the US supports Israel?
Why is all this happening? Could it be that there is something more to this global violence than the simple “blame America first” concept that Ron Paul supposes?
Why hasn’t he bothered to learn about the enemy threat doctrine?
He also points out that our military in Saudi Arabia was used by Al Qaeda as a recruitment tool (something everyone acknowledges, and why we left). He also points out that we shouldn't be spending our money sending troops all over while we're in economic trouble (remember, Osama bin Laden pointed out that his strategy was to make the US spend lots of money, and it's well known that he wanted to bog us down in warfare that would drive up the price of oil--and it looks like we're helping his plan). He also spoke against supporting Obama going into Libya.
Why is it that threads about Ron Paul must use lies? I guess it's because the truth supports him.
If a sexy female in skimpy clothing walks into the shadows of a lawless part of down, the rapist raping her is not unexpected, even if the rape is entirely the fault of the rapist, not the victim.
If you saw your daughter was going to do something so risky, would you not try to dissuade her--or do you consider that "making her responsible for the rape"?
Evidently, you believe the latter. And on the other hand, I don't see any evidence that Ron Paul believes what you claim.
As long and the idiots who title stories like the one above (in this case, Jim Hoft) don't know the difference between such terms as "cause," "blame," and "responsibility," we'll keep dumping billions of dollars into third-world sewers, tearing military families apart, having the best of our blood shed on foreign land, etc.
I imagine Osama is grinning from hell with a banner: "Mission Accomplished"
“Ron Paul is a nut!”
His supporters are even crazier than he is.I was arguing with one of his die-hards a couple years ago,after about 30 seconds I realized that I was talking to a mental patient.
in both your examples, i dont consider the girl or the daughter responsible for the rape. The fault, responsiblity and blame lie totally with the rapist because the girl/daughter did nothing wrong even if going down a risky dark street.
Ron Paul blame US for terrorist attack by supporting Israel, but US is not doing anything wrong by supporting Israel.
Israel is only defending their right to exist and there is nothing wrong with supporting this position. When terrorist attack US for US defending Israel right to exist, it is the terrorist that are wrong and not the US.
This is why I disagree with Ron Paul. Ron Paul may explain why terrorist do what they do, but its wrong to justify, defend or excuse terrorist’s action
Ron Paul used to write two newsletters: The Ron Paul Survival Report and the Ron Paul Political Report. What he wrote may surprise you:
He accused US troops of war crimes in Desert Storm:
Ron Paul accuses US troops of “mowing down civilians in the streets” in Somalia:
Ron Paul implies that President Reagan was in league with communist traitor Armand Hammer:
Ron Paul blames Winston Churchill for World War II:
Ron Paul accuses Jesse Helms of being bought by Jewish lobby:
Ron Paul complains about bill introduced by Bob Kemp and Bob Dole to close the Palestinian PLO office in NYC:
Michael Scheuer is a craven dhimmi but I’ve never seen Jew-hatred from him. RAther he fears Islamic radicalism so much that he blames everything including Israel for it. He ignores Al Qaedas calls about liberating Al Andalus (Spain) and other parts of Europe once under the Muslim boot.
I have similar questions for the Ron Paul drones.
Where is the "neo-con" support for American blood in Libya, Syria, Egypt and other Arab uprising? If you listen to them, you would think that there would be multiple threads a day from massive amounts of Freepers advocating these things. But there are none. Conservatives believe in Military action only when required, not everywhere and for any reason.
Funniest post of the day.
Blind loyalist? You bet!
At least he is honest.
He calls Kemp and Dole “statists” for closing a terrorist office. I have recently learned from my libertarian coworker that anyone who is not a libertarian is therefore a statist.
The dictionary is available online these days. Hint: look up “Blame” and “Cause” and “Reason” and see where you went wrong.
Don't you see the fallacy in your claim?
And then you imply that Ron Paul doesn't believe the terrorists are wrong for attacking the US? Come on.
Ron Paul may explain why terrorist do what they do, but its wrong to justify, defend or excuse terrorists action
If you have footage of him doing such a thing, share it, as it's not in the public domain, to my knowledge.
Well those things are expressions of collectivism, no? The "looters and moochers" think that way, no? Loyalty, patriotism, respect for the traditions and history of the nation, saluting officers, standing in court when the judge comes in... why, that's all collectivist thinking! It's statism! It's evil! Check your premises! A ruggedly individualistic individual like John Galt or Johnnie Goodboy Tyler would never sympathize with such oppressive anti-individual anti-conservative anti-capitalist sentiments.
Ron Paul also praised notorious anti-Semite Michael Scheuer as someone he respects on foreign policy. And, of course, Ron Paul still blames the United States for Islamic extremism.Thanks RobinMasters. The POS claims that "Islamists" (not jihadists, not terrorists) attack us because of our "interventionism".
I regret leaving Jamestown, as I have great respect for its analysis on several vital U.S. security issues. But at the same time, I am grateful to the Foundation's directors for terminating me. In the hardcover of Marching Toward Hell, I condemned the U.S.-Israel relationship and those who take it "upon themselves to decide who is and who is not a 'good American,'" based on his or her views of U.S.-Israel relations, and "then mete out punishment to those of their countrymen who do not make the grade." At the time, my view was based on what pro-Israel U.S. citizens had done to Pat Buchanan, President Carter, and Professors Walt and Mearsheimer.
Michael Scheuer is not an antisemite. He simply cowers in fear of Islam. It’s kind of sad.
Sorry, but based on what he writes, and the company he keeps, he is.
