“Be wary of those who tell you one thing, and speak the opposite to another”
The motto of Israeli intelligence apparatus Mossad is: “Through Deception Make War”…
One ally of Israel is not just supporting Israel on this assertion, he is embracing it as a campaign strategy.
The irony of Rand Paul’s campaign and his relationship to his supporters is, they will come out and tell you that every position Rand takes that they oppose, “he has to, so he can get in office, and do the opposite.”
This is a rationale for voting for President. “Lie to everyone, so long as I know what you will really do, is in MY best interests…”
This is hillarious, and a perversion of logic. If anything it is politicians like Rand who have to lie to his supporters and would be supporters, so he can get the financial backing to get the Presidency, and then abandon his supporters positions, for the positions of those who funded him into office.
Only the naive Paulestinians believe, Rand is betraying the big money men, and party, in their favor.
If anything his father is a hard lesson in just the opposite. Rand would not fall to far from that tree.
But lets get back to this magical thinking and wonderful deception Rand plays on his own supporters and the people.
Rand says he’s a conservative Republican, but panders to Libertarians on certain issues.
This allows Rand to get libertarians to compromise to join the Republican party and have to embrace the “whacko birds” like Cruz, Carson, Huckabee, and the rest of the lunatics from the insane asylum that reside in the GOP. The ones who believe corporations are people with unlimited rights, while the people who don’t fund or back them, are freeloaders and
“homegrown terrorists” who endanger everything America holds dear, like Israel.
On every major issue Rand dilutes the Libertarian message of freedom without compromise, for endless compromise and sensationalism of government overreach. Conveniently ignoring the fact that the very solution Rand offers is more government.
A law, or policy, or lobbied compromise meant to patch the issue for the moment, until the next time he needs a talking point to push back. Not to fix the problem, but to enhance his status and raise money for proselytizing about another overreach and abuse of power, where Rand would have the government be in control of policing themselves, over a problem they created.
Do you see who is disempowered, here?
Rand says he is for a more rational national defense, but insists on more boots on the ground, and more tools to fight terrorists overseas and here at home. But he never clarifies who he thinks a terrorist is…
The majority of the time a terrorist is anybody who opposes or organizes against American interests, even when it is localized, or specific to their region. This interferes with the “Pax Americana” new world vision of unrestrained capitalism, and corporate profits for the people of America. The corporations. With unlimited privileges, and rights to access to resources, and capital, to create more profits for them and their stockholders, at the expense of the nation(s) and the people who are affected both back home, and abroad.
The very thing he is asking for with lassiez faire capitalism, and a global marketplace, is exactly what has expanded poverty overseas, conflict overseas due to resource scarcity and control, and created the kind of “blowback” that his father knew well, that threatens American interests overseas, and Americans back home in the US.
But instead of targeting the REAL adversary, corporate interests, and their agents who cannibalize the resources at home and abroad to create privatized profits and socialize the losses onto the American taxpayer, Rand targets the threat to capitalist, and capitalism… as… The people.
Here and abroad Rand will talk about how savage the Muslims in affected countries are, with no mention of what was taken from them to put them into that position.
He will be a blowhard on Benghazi with good reason, but he won’t condemn US interests in the region who acted to destabilize a Democratic and resource independent (read DEBT FREE) Libya, he will instead claim that al Qaeda came out of nowhere and it was the US fault that they were empowered to take Libya with NO alternative to Qaddafi present.
Here again, he is wrong.
Libya was a resource rich environment that existed to create independence not only for Libya, but the entire African region from imperialist rule of the Anglo American Establishment.
Qaddafi used the capital of his nations resources to give Libyans the highest standard of living, and literacy of any nation in Africa. And access to health care, even subsidies to get care outside the country, if need be. He took his country off the Petrodollar, 1st for Euros, and then was to use the largest gold reserves outside of North America to exchange his oil and that of Africa for gold. This would have allowed independence and sovereignty of every African country from the financial speculators and globalist banksters, in a vital resource rich environment. Worse still, the success of such a gambit would have shifted the influence of other nations, both emerging and would be emerging, away from the Anglo American stranglehold.
To say Libyans wanted to topple a man who gave them a house, car, and money for getting married… and allowed them to get access to health care, and education, even for women which is taboo in fundamentalist Islam, let alone one who welcomed black Africans to emigrate and work in his country, no questions asked, is nothing short of insanity.
To say that it’s good that Qaddafi is gone, but too bad that Libya is a failed state, while funding and training the al Qaeda who took over the country the same way Iraq was allowed to fall to ISIS, is disingenuous at best, and a pathetic cop out at worst.
Doubling down on this further, Rand now says that we must keep troops in Iraq to protect Americans, the American Embassy that is bigger than the Vatican, and “our strategic interests” in Iraq and the region… while claming that he is the rational actor in the political arena, just because he doesn’t want to bomb or invade Iran, while stating his concern that everything we have done has emboldened Iran, and threatens Israel.
He not only won’t rule out going after Iran, but also gives hints that Russia should be punished for helping Iran be a strong counter to Israel’s interests, in the region.
Does this sound like a rational “anti-war” candidate?
Granted he is more rational that the nutcases in his party who want to nuke the entire middle east to give “liebenstraum” for “Greater Israel,” but this is no moderate. Only in comparison to the “Dr. Strangelove” element of his party, the Dick Cheney wing of the GOP. Where war is profitable. And thus anything and everything is a justification for more war, and a bigger police state here at home, to keep tabs on people who disagree with the establishment.
Rand even wants to bring the war home, by sending more money to the military, while cutting domestic needs here at home. When the needs are increasing. This sets up a scenario for a robust police state, with shell-shocked Army vets coming home to work for contractors here in the US, or staffing “domestic extremist/homegrown terrorist” task forces right back in the good ol’ USA, to keep an eye on people he doesn’t like.
He doesn’t like people that smoke pot, but doesn’t think that government workers, high level, who were caught using adultery sites with taxpayer credit cards and on government computers should be punished for breaking the same kind of laws that Hillary Clinton broke with her emails.
Adultery in the military is punishable with a court martial and imprisonment, because it compromises decisions on personnel and possibly even the battlefield. This is a threat to national security more so than a bunch of African Americans protesting abuses from the very same police state Rand claims to be opposed to.
But to Rand, the protesters exercising their right to assemble in public, for redress of grievances, are a problem that needs to be solved. The threat to our national security from those who could be blackmailed and punished for adultery is nothing.
At the very same time he says that the main problem in the African American community is their lack of faith, and that if they were more Christian, and more personally responsible, they could overcome the barriers imposed upon them by their own government and the corporations that write policy with them. Especially if we empowered the church with tax exemptions for their helpful assistance… Even though churches DO… NOT… PAY… TAXES!!!
Rand is very concerned about the flop flopping of Donald Trump. But enforces doublethink among his own followers. Leading them on to believe he is taking un-Libertarian positions, to get in power, so he can be a Libertarian-Authoritarian, and roll back the overreach of government with Executive Orders, which are Unconstitutional, or by simply letting the laws that concern them, expire. He believes that he can use the bully pulpit to argue positions outside, as well as inside his own party, and get the people motivated to give him the capital to impose his solutions on everybody.
That is NOT libertarian. That is Authoritarian… Just like Donald Trump.
It is the kind of hubris and thinking that has led to his deficit between not only him and his party, but him and the American people.
And this is the problem that is killing Rand’s campaign.
He simply has NO credibility in what he says, and the people are catching on…
Read any article written about Rand Paul, watch any interview with Rand Paul, and something becomes readily apparent quite soon…
He doesn’t like the job.
Doesn’t want the job.
And doesn’t want to be obligated to do what comes with the job.
He says he wants to be President to bring freedom back to America.
But he backs the military and the corporate interests that feed it.
He backs Wall St., just would change one side of influence for another and call that reform.
He doesn’t even argue to end the Federal Reserve, he just wants them to tell him and Congress what’s going on.
When he doesn’t realize Congress uses the Fed as their own personal slush fund.
The very one that allows Rand to put his own family members on his payroll and government pension plans.
Then he not only contradicts himself on being the peace candidate by saying we need to stay in the middle east to defend “our interests from ISIS,” he calls activists he doesn’t like “extremists,” and thinks that the government should crack down on those who participate in the political process, in “un-sanctioned” manners and means that cannot be controlled by the media or the state itself.
This is why the only people Rand loathes more than the media, is the very same alternative media, that was the sole source of coverage and advocacy of his father and his father’s positions, without which, Rand Paul, would still be nothing but the son of a congressman, who works as an eye surgeon for a living…
Funny, I thought that was the POINT of Democracy!
The people assembling (without permission) to DEMAND redress of grievances from government, and policy that adversely affects them.
For Rand, this is unacceptable! It gets in the way of who he has to support, so he can have his privilege as a congressman, and exemption from the Income Tax, guaranteed Cadillac health care plans for his whole family and a nice pension for his staff/family, should he ever screw up big enough to lose his office, in service to/of and FOR the state.
It’s literally made him and his father millionaires!
You would think Rand, who wants to cut back on the mandatory life sentences to something more reasonable, like 30 years, in the name of compassion, would take up or be open TO the “Black Lives Matter” movement…
It’s a NO BRAINER! Especially for somebody trying to make inroads to the Black Community and get more of their votes, than normal, into the GOP camp.
But for a man with NO brains, even he can screw this up. Which he does when he goes in the opposite direction, like when he said on one hand he was sympathetic to the riots after the Ferguson incident, THEN joked about not having to stop in DC, since he takes the private subway for Congressman and government officials to get to his television interviews…!
He continues to be given opportunity after opportunity and screws it up!
His father’s biggest supporters, he throws under the bus for the establishment and he wonders why he can’t raise money.
His father’s position on foreign policy, that made his dad seem rational and get those supporters, Rand runs them off, in order to get support from the establishment, who break their own by laws, and the State Constitution just so he can run, illegally in order to pay them back, once he gets in office.
And this capitulation and collusion he wraps in the flag and slogan of “Stand with Rand, Defeat The Washington Machine.”
He gets national attention for a filibuster against the NDAA and drones used against American citizens, he stops it when the cameras stop, goes home, and is satisfied with a non-binding statement that they don’t interpret the law, the way Rand doesn’t want them to. While he uses these assertions as evidence that he stood up to the police state, in order to justify campaign contributions to fund his personal status and ambition.
And even when it backfires, and his own family members are indicted in federal court for breaking campaign finance laws, Rand doesn’t “STAND” up to the media, or hold the guilty accountable, he BLAMES the media, and everyone else BUT himself, while he politely asks his nephew in law to excuse himself from running his official PAC and campaign while he is being investigated and prepared to stand trial in federal court.
Does he call out the people responsible, and hold them accountable?
Does he give his side of the story with the media, and stand up for the ethics of his father, and his own ethics, making a distinction between the accused and himself?
Does he campaign and use the media like his father did to make his case to the American people…
Instead he runs away, out of the country, in the middle of a Presidential campaign, and political scandal…
An intentional failure and lack of accountability we haven’t seen since George W. Bush on the day of 911.
Every mistake is an opportunity lost.
When Rand has tried to stand on principle, it has been shown to be artificial and weak.
When he has compromised, he has lost the respect of his most loyal supporters, some of which have already LEFT his campaign, while he has also paradoxically failed to gain any new supporters from the establishment he is compromising, and casting out people, to appeal to… apparently in vain…
It is nothing but a continuous pattern of poor judgement.
A consequence of somebody who was given opportunity, but had nowhere he wanted to go with it, and didn’t even know why. He just ran(d) with it… And now he has no purpose. He has nothing to stand for, so will stand for anything and everything.
He has no one to stand behind him as the establishment comes for him, to tear down his ambition, and the monument to his own self importance.
Rand tried be defined by others through his father’s message, while at the same time, define himself by how successful he would be by abandoning it…
And the result is, he has collapsed well long before his father even ever did….
A collapse as swift as Nero, and as dramatic as Caesar.
He has no one to blame but himself, in trusting the most selfish and greedy he knew, to make the case for him to have his own selfishness and greed be exhalted as the new standard for the GOP.
But the GOP’s selfishness, greed, and jealous guard of their own status and property, was never going to allow Rand to put himself above them and their hierarchy.
He was so naive and full of ambition that he has blinded himself to the truth. That he could NEVER be one of them,of the Inner Party, he was only to be a useful idiot, a pied piper, leading the march of those in the Outer Party, and used to skillfully scapegoat the Proles to secure the spoils that was taken from the weak, and the near weak, and given to the Inner Party, with false promises that it would be shared among the Outer Party members.
Rand has self destructed, but honestly, for all his aims, and the emptiness of his goals, better he go down with the cost of his ambition, than the rest of us all.
Luckily he imploded and fell under the weight of his own delusions and self(ish) importance before his lack of ideals, and moral bankruptcy cost the rest of the country, and when you look at his foreign policy, particularly in regard to Russia and ISIS, perhaps even the world.
So now, no matter what he says. It’s a deception.
He is deceiving himself that he can salvage the mess he created if he finds the right scapegoat.
He is deceiving his supporters to think that he can, is able to, or would even want to take on TPTB, his own party, the Democrats and the rest of America who would balk at the changes he feels is necessary to make society more of his liking and utopian.
He is deceiving pawns like the Black community, by paying them lip service when it serves his ambition, and castigating and infuriating them, when he calls them out to appeal to another group of people he needs to support him to have credibility, within his own party.
He already threw out his biggest allies, from his father’s camp who would have his back at times like this, so he could be given the false perception of inclusion and relevance within the party and the political arena.
So in sacrificing his base, and making the greatest sin for the compromised apparent, simply that he is too incompetent to run a campaign let alone the country, Rand is left in limbo.
If he continues his campaign, he will lose money he needs for his re-election for his Senate seat in Kentucky.
If he stops his campaign, he will be seen as a failure in running for the Presidency perhaps in the next election, or the one after that, if one of the “whacko birds” defies reality and wins the Presidency.
Rand is between I-raq and a hard place…
Somehow he has to reverse and repair enough burned bridges to have somebody to build him back up into a credible, solid, consistent candidate.
But if he starts to buck the people he ran to, he looks not only weak, but limits his ceiling as a politician.
He would have to be satisfied being a Senator, and getting attention an issue at a time, while the GOP or Democrat gets to set the agenda….
And perhaps, if time heals most wounds, and he kisses enough ass, and gets his priorities straight, while balancing the uncompromising positions from his father’s base, who feel they are owed something, as well as the uncompromising positions from the power brokers who demand everything for themselves at the expense of his father’s base, as well as the voters, themselves…
He can try again in 4-8 years…. That is a long time in politics…
That sounds like a hell of a burden and obligation to meet for anyone…
Considering Rand’s colossal failure in meeting his latest huge obligation…
It sounds damn near impossible.
But history has shown us, with people like Richard Nixon, claims of anybody’s political death are often premature…
First things first, Rand must decide what he wants, and rectify that with what an honest assessment of what he is truly capable of.
If he is serious. He has to mend fences, CLEAN HOUSE, and temper his ambition with ethics… The ethics that apparently were so absent in his father’s last campaign.
He must be as pious, as transparent, and as open and painfully honest as his father.
He has to be willing to go anywhere, take any audience, listen to everything they have to say… and try to meld his position to something that includes the views and concerns of those who disagree with him.
The “talking down to black people” rather than talking TO them, HAS to STOP! Instead he has to engage them. And include them. Even if he disagrees.
The blamestorming with his paid mercenaries, designed to scapegoat his father’s principled supporters, to absolve himself and his hired guns, from any accountability for their incompetence, as well as the continued funding of people who divide his movement, instead of work to grow it, must end.
He cannot alibi them, he must REMOVE them! This means Jack Hunter, Jesse Benton, Trygve Olson, John Tate, Doug Wead, Michael Nystrom, and the rest of the crew that betrayed his father’s supporters, with or without Ron Paul’s permission, THEY MUST GO!!!
He has to start OVER, with people who aren’t trying to use the Paul name to grow their business or “Brand” and are motivated by advocating and working to share the cause of liberty, with those who are in need, and are being cannibalized by this system of control.
Rand failed to get that message.
He forgot the freedom message that made his father so popular, in SPITE of the media and all the negativity thrown at him, and it was A LOT!
Instead he took on the obligation of his father’s name, the pressure of meeting his father’s supporters expectations, as well as the demand for compromise and ejection of those same principles from the self appointed kingmakers.
He forgot his audience… The American People… Black, White, Brown, no matter ideology or their “programming,” Ron showed how to break that programming, to get people to think for THEMSELVES, and listen to what is true, vs. what is popular.
Rand instead decided that his audience was his father’s enemies, took on their ideology while watering down his father’s principles, and tried to stick with his program or “Brand” that was designed by his father’s enemies to END Rand… And it WORKED! And the only way it could work was if Rand’s insecurity and lack of principle in the name of his ambition gave the opening…
Now he must treat the open wound, repair his psyche, and re-align his principles with his ambition so that the former serves the latter, instead of the latter destroying the former.
Does he have it within him to do do the self examination necessary to be stronger, a person that will stand with the principled, no matter the consequences and see that their voice is heard, and that government works FOR the people, instead of for itself at the expense of the people…
Time will tell…
He was never honest with himself, how could we ever have expected him to be honest with us???
Now, he’s got 4-8 years, to do the work.
The hard work, that he should have done in the 1st place, before he ever decided to run a national campaign for President of the United States…
Rookie mistake kid,
“Live and Learn”
“Self loathe and Burn”
This is the second biggest decision you will ever have made in your life…
Will you stand up to make it…
Or fall down and fail, yet again to meet it..
We are waiting…
We are watching…
It’s on you, now…
Be honest with us…
Or walk away…
You ask for the party to exempt you from their by laws and the State Constitution…
You tell them to “trust you,” they tell you to go to hell. After you reveal you haven’t paid/bribed them to cover the cost of an illegal “caucus” to circumvent election law.
You then tell them, there is no point in putting up your own money, UNLESS they give you what you want.
They call your bluff and give you time to shake down your own supporters, YET AGAIN for a shitload of money (250,000) to fund your ambition. Literally buying ballot access. Just like the guy who YOU railed against for doing the same, Donald Trump.
If you can’t produce the bribe money, the election will go on, by the State Constitution.
And by 13 votes, you choose your ambition over the Constitution.
The party chose money over the people and their own by laws and the law…
And you destroyed the Constitution to save your ambition. And so that you would have a chance to “save the US Constitution.”
Rand sold out the Tea Party candidate for Senate to save Mitch McConnell, his father’s biggest adversary in the Republican party.
Now Mitch returns the favor by auctioning off the nomination for the Presidency, and the US Senate to Paul, if he can kick back money from his supporters, OR big money Presidential donors as a “down payment” on his Presidency.
He can’t stand up to McConnell OR the GOP, OR the big party donor’s…
THEY OWN HIM NOW, and FOREVER!
He took that chance, when he decided to break the law, and illegally run for the Senate and the Presidency.
Every reason Rand gives TO be President, he just discarded and threw away.
Compromising himself into the position where he has to back down to the party, the party bosses, and their Corporate masters…
He can’t “Defeat the Washington Machine” he OWES THEM EVERYTHING NOW!!!
From the 1st day in office, he HAS to return their calls, meet with them, and let them write legislation, he has to advocate and carry through Congress…
Is that in your best interest?
Think about it…
“Paul’s early endorsement of McConnell in last year’s Senate race was enormously helpful in denying Matt Bevin any momentum in his losing bid to take out McConnell in the primary.
That endorsement caused Paul a lot of problems with his base, but he stuck it out, even as Bevin angrily tried to dissuade Paul from getting involved as the primary campaign wore on.
And even after McConnell and Paul found themselves at sharp odds over renewing the expiring Patriot Act this year, Paul did not go the route of Sen. Ted Cruz, making McConnell an establishment foil in an effort to rile up the Tea Party base.
So perhaps it’s no surprise it was McConnell and his allies rescuing Paul from himself Saturday, because the case could be made that McConnell owed Paul a little rescuing.
Given the stakes of Saturday’s vote, it’s safe to say that debt has been repaid with interest”.
And that interest, NEVER stops!
Do you see?
All we get is compromised candidates.
Obama/Romney= Obamacare vs. Romneycare.
Obama/McCain= Two people who were not natural born citizens, and compromised, McCain for his capitulation with the Communist in Vietnam. And Obama with his shady past.
Bush/Kerry= Two pro war candidates, both “brothers under the skin” at Yale “Skull n’ Bones” elite fraternity. Kerry worked with McCain in Classifying McCain’s war record, and telling families of POW’s to go home, shut up, and stop harassing him and McCain, who were in charge of the POW committee in the Senate in the 90’s.
The list goes on…
Bush the father with his connections to Iran Contra and CIA. And his illegal wars in Panama, and the Gulf, after telling Hussein that the US would have no involvement in “regional disputes” which created the US/Iraq war, after Hussein was put into debt as America’s ally, in the 8 year long Iran/Iraq war.
You can go through every President in history, and there is a price in human blood and treasure they have to pay, to be in position to serve the masters.
Ford pardoned Nixon.
Nixon and Bush the father, whacked JFK.
Eisenhower left German POW’s to starve and freeze to death in winter…
Truman gave us the Nuclear age, when Japan was preparing to surrender IF they could keep the Emperor.
FDR gave us the Depression to bail out the banks, and Wall St. which lead to Americans living in poverty and starving to death…
Shall I continue…
Read your history books.
Power has a price.
And that price is human lives.
Just ask the people in Arkansas about how many bodies are buried in Arkansas for the Clinton’s…
Now Rand has sold out his own people, he compromised himself for his ambition, and threw himself upon the altar of the false God/Golden Calf, pleading in the name of his father, to have the doors that were closed to him, opened, so that he may have a stake in the lottery to serve at the right hand of Satan. And his father was right there, behind him, with his hand on Rand’s arm, leading him into the gates of Perdition, and watching him walk through…. and descend unto the realm, and into the gallows, where the souls of all spiritually dead men of power and self appointed privilege shall abode.
There is nothing to be gained for anyone there… Only temporary privileges subject to obedience. The same delusions of exceptionalism and privilege that Rand’s supporters (the ones who haven’t been cast out by Rand’s handlers, that is) want SO desperately as to stoop to ANY low, call out ANY person, and cast out EVERY person, who gets in the way of Rand’s ascension to be a useful servant, to the godless, immoral, and unconscionable elite that rule us all.
Instead of “Defeating the Washington Machine” Rand will read their edicts and punish all willful disobedience to his God, as their faithful servant, and worshipful master.
Guess those lessons as a Freemason Ron Paul learned well, and imparted such wisdom to his son, who only wanted to eclipse his father’s ambition, and now in doing so, will do anything to find a purpose with what he is to do with such power.
Rand Paul is dangerous. Just as dangerous as Obama, and for the same reasons.
Some will celebrate his ascension, demand rights and privileges for their associations, and demand they come at the expense of others natural rights. And say that the rest of us, deserve to be punished for their willful disloyalty to the king. And that the followers of the reign of Rand, be entitled to the same exemptions, privileges and immunites that all Presidents, especially Obama’s supporters, have expected and enjoyed at the cost of everyone else’s natural human rights.
We will get new “think tanks” selling Rand’s corporate campaigns against everything that stands in the way of the corporatists agenda, and we will get agents coming out of the woodwork, everywhere to tell us, our law says that our role, is to serve the leader, and the leader’s agenda, and put our will aside for that of the greater good. For Rand Paul. For Libertarianism. For Conservatism. For everyone and everything, except ourselves.
We will instead be asked to pay for the wars, the aide to politically connected agents, to the corporate masters, with “Free Trade Zones” that exempt them from the law, and allow them to be subsidized on top of already privatized profits, they can continue to use to outsource their cost, and cut out the American worker, so that they can kick back some of that to their man Rand in the White House…
We will be called “freeloaders” because we can’t find work. Because of the bastardization of education for the corporate masters, and the teacher’s unions. We will be told that the days of yesteryear are GONE, and it’s on US to “retrain, and refresh our skill sets” to meet the challenges of the global marketplace, “Because what’s good for GE, is good for America.”
No matter how many Unconstitutional “conflicts” we have to engage in, to keep Americans employed, stockholders happy, and “America safe from terrorists, home and abroad.” Even if we have to give the police “drones” to “arrest” people… for shoplifting or illegally selling cigarettes, which they are forced to do, with no job in sight, to feed themselves and their families.
Let’s hope Rand stops at just drones, and doesn’t arm them with hellfire missiles… But isn’t that what we do to fight “terrorists on the battlefield of Iraq and Afghanistan, and Pakistan….” Isn’t America now considered a “battlefield” under Presidential Directive 51. Can a Rand Paul if he chooses STILL suspend government for “any national emergency…”
Well if “terrorists on the Homeland” isn’t a reason for such, I don’t know what is….
Do you trust Rand Paul with that kind of power? Considering who he answers to now…
I don’t see freedom in drones.
Or expanded military, and interventions overseas… on behalf of foreign nations.
I don’t see freedom when corporations are people, and people get to pay welfare to corporations, on top of record corporate profits, while taking that money from the people, by cutting their welfare in a Depression.
I don’t see freedom by cutting services, agitating the people, making them more desperate, then unleashing a massive corporate, militaristic, surveillance, police state, to protect the corporations, their interest, and the interests of property owners, which are now largely corporations AND thanks to the mortgage fraud crisis, BANKS that OWN housing in the US!
Now you tell me, after what Rand just did, to get in a position to be selected by the elite to serve them, do you think he is going to tell the banks to go to hell, and save the “tenant” who used to be a homeowner, with property and rights, but now is a debt slave, with no means to pay, no income, and not even benefits from government to have enough income to be able to beg for a job, to pay for his right to exist?
I just don’t see it.
I don’t see Rand standing up for the common man…
I see him standing behind the masters as they rape, pillage, and burn all that is left in and of our society.
Granted ALL the candidates so far this election cycle are BAD!
When Donald Trump sounds reasonable, the American people are desperate.
The people have reached their “Howard Beale moment.”
They have had enough with a system they know is serving them up as a meal to the powerful.
But how can they survive? Where is the way forward?
Sadly, it is not to be found in the likes of Rand Paul.
Certainly not in the company he keeps, in his family, nor in who he runs to, to “save him from himself.”
We, the People have only each other.
These bastards would only let us have them…
We are the host, they are the parasite.
As long as we look up to them, and give them dominion over us. We will be left with nothing.
A slow descent into tyranny and darkness.
All shrouded in the flag, clutching the Constitution, and praising people like Rand Paul, as he destroys us… just to have a purpose to his empty life.
What does every person do, the minute they accomplish a long held dream, or goal?
They realize that moment is nothing… and they ask themselves… “Now what?”
“What is the point to it all”
“What do I do now…?”
Thankfully for Rand, like George W. Bush, his agenda has already been laid out for him…
It was said of Bush that he didn’t know why he was President, but according to Dick Cheney “on 911, he found out why…”
Rand Paul, should he be (s)elected by the masters is set to come to the same epiphany.
He is the spokesman for the agenda… nothing more… just like Obama. Just like W. Bush.
It is the agenda of the masters, the SAME people who have lived off of us as parasites since the inception of this country.
An election, ANY election is NOT going to change that.
It is WE that must change, we must cast them away, as they have done unto us, and will continue to do unto us, until we refuse.
And if Rand is to be the one to preside while they lock us up, seize our property, fine us, put us in jail, and call us “domestic extremist/terrorists” simply because we believe our lives matter, that our will is just, and our rights eclpise anything offered by government, and offered, so that those in government may be exempt from ANY and ALL accountability…
SO BE IT!
It’s time to choose…
Rand Paul, and who he serves, with his unlimited means granted to him by the masters, to satisfy their unlimited ends…
Or yourselves, and each other…
Who matters more…
This holds true for Hillary, or the rest of the GOP or Democrat puppets…
But Rand had a choice.
He could have stood with his father’s supporters, and stood with the people as an agent for reform, and put the powers that be on notice, instead, with his father’s help, he pleaded to be the one to send us to the gallows, to keep his masters warm, and ensure his ticket to a seat in their room. It may be facing the wall, BUT hey, at least, he’s not in the fire, with the rest of US!
That seems to be all he is after, and what his father spent his life trying to obtain for him and his family.
Which now includes McConnell operative, Jesse Benton, who is facing time in a federal prison…
You have made your father proud…
But he won’t be there when they turn on you.
And he sure as hell won’t be there when we do…
You asked for this…
You may be finished…
But our battle has just begun!
You cannot buy us out…
You cannot intimidate us…
We are not leaving…
We are watching you..
And we will be there, waiting for you…
When those you sold us out for, cast YOU aside…
“His Judgement Cometh, And That… Right Soon!”
You brought this on yourself…
Now it’s your time to reap the whirlwind…
You can’t externalize or postpone your comeuppance, any longer…
“the moral arc of the universe is long…
…but it bends towards justice…”
And justice we shall have over the likes of you…
The clock is ticking…
YOUR clock is ticking…
You think you are running for President…
If I were YOU, brother…
I’d just RUN!
I’ve got my own problems with the “Southern Dipshit” and my run ins with him and his compadres are well known to readers on here…
But this time, the Ultimate Sellout has and is going, TOO far!
Jack(ASS) Hunter has always been a hustler, using a hustle to get money.
He used it as a radio host, trying to be his state’s version of Rush Limbaugh…
He used it as a writer “ghostwriting” Rand Paul’s books, before Paul put him on the book cover, then had to take him off his last couple of books Jack wrote for him due to the controversy surrounding Hunter.
The controversy with the grassroots started when Hunter began to purge people from the Brand Paul movement, who had views he didn’t like. Basically anything that countered the GOP orthodoxy…
He engaged in collaboration with other hacks of the Liberty movement like Austin Petersen, to “be the scapel” and cut “the cancer” out of the Brand Paul liberty movement.
But when Jack finally was taken to task for his racist, separatist, and over the top characterizations of more people he didn’t like who just happened to be black or democrats, then the media came after him, using him to discredit Rand Paul, and the “Brand Paul” movement as a whole.
Jack erased his southernavenger.com web site, took the money he got from Rand Paul’s donors, to be “the offical campaign blogger” for Rand Paul 2016, and RAN over to http://www.rare.us, to be their “political blogger in cheif.”
But Jack has a problem. Just like Rand did.
If he wants credibility like Rand does, he MUST sellout his people, and condemn where he came from.
Just like Rand, who used his father’s supporters, then cast them aside with Jack’s help, Jack must now do a 180, and condemn HIS supporters and followers to save his “brand,” and make sure that he is palatable enough to the Democrats, the RINO’s and sellout Republicans, to keep the people, as well as his own people, in line!
This is why he must condemn the Confederate flag, and the people behind it, even the African American Sons of the Confederacy
Because it doesn’t fit the narrative. It breaks people out of their ideological bind to party over principle, and people before power.
Jack is all about his party, himself, and his small role in controlling them and molding them into camps, to divide and conquer. There are no Libertarians, there are no Conservatives, just Libertarian-ish Conservatives.
That is his patent and trademark. Bring Libertarians into the GOP mainstream fold, and back the party and the candidate, no matter how despicable, be it Jeb Bush, or Mitt Romney, so that the GOP will let you into their club and give you position and privilege, so long as you are obedient to their propaganda, and attack any and ALL who counter it. Be they Libertarian, Republican, Moderate, or especially Democrat.
The Democrat part is important, because it must never be made public that you are using fear, and threats of ostracism, and expulsion from the party, in order to be more predictable and in line with establishment GOP control and leadership.
No matter if they contradict your position on war, on money, on taxes, trade, or any other issue. You MUST stay in line, donate, take orders from the top down, and stay on message. And while your at it, throw a few bucks Hunter’s way, or to Julie Borowski, or to Austin Petersen, or Michael Nystrom, or to Rand Paul, so that they can get even more privledges, exemptions and immunities, from not only the government, but from the consequences of their own failed, naked, partisan ideologies. They are seeking no more than welfare for them, through peddling propaganda, to preach division and scorn and contempt for those beneath them, on the basis of ideology or dogma.
They want you to serve their aims and ends. And attack anyone who would ask you to question them, scrutinize them, and take their works out of the darkness, and put them under the light of day. Exposing them for what they are, hustlers, businessmen and women who are using their advertising, or “Brand” to keep you dependent on them, for your belief system, which is nothing more than their talking points/ideology/dogma, that they manifest, to KEEP you beneath them, and them above you, with the privileges, exemptions and immunities, YOUR money grants them.
Jack Hunter would be nothing, without you funding him, and listening to him.
Same with Julie Borowski, Austin Petersen, Michael Nystrom, Alex Jones, and the rest of the Brand Paul pushers.
They ALL have to sell you out, to stay in business…
That is why they have to gate-keep, purge, censor, attack, obfuscate, and cover up their allegiances to the masters. They criticize all day, but never offer solutions. What they offer is membership into their club, and always at a price!
The cold comfort of being a member of a virtual unreality, and dystopia. That is counter to reality and how the world really works, and is.
To see Hunter use a narrative taken from the news about a crazed white racist shooter, without question, when anybody who looked at the facts of this shooting, and others, and had SERIOUS doubts about the evidence, and the endless questions of the lack of evidence, and then have the gall to say: “I’m not here to settle those arguments. I tired of them years ago.”
Shows what this article and Jack is put on this Earth to do…
Fear monger, and scare people into his “respectable” camp, by comparison…
“You don’t want to be a white male white supremacist, nutcase! So you better get in with me, because I’m NOT!” (And everybody else is?) Do you see the manipulation going on here…
“Ideologues ridicule and dehumanize people at the expense of their personhood. Ideologues believe some groups must be attacked, and although the groups are comprised of flesh-and-blood human beings, it’s better not to think of them as people too much—it could get you off message.
It’s crude collectivist thinking. It’s an intentional lack of sympathy. It’s dehumanization. It’s at the heart of everything that’s wrong with our politics and culture.”
And is precisely Jack Hunter’s stock and trade.
“In its most extreme form, it’s what’s wrong with Dylann Roof”
Here Jack scapegoats somebody for his own sins…
“I’m writing this column in a restaurant I frequent and am conscious every time a particular black server I’ve come to know walks by. I don’t want him to see the words “Confederate flag” and think I’m writing about it positively. I have no intention of stopping him to educate him about the “true” meaning of the Confederate flag, as I might have years ago. I’m certain as a black American he already has a pretty concrete idea of how he feels about that symbol.”
Yet another thing Jack has “no intention” of doing, so what IS he doing?
“I care about moving beyond groupthink where right and left stop dehumanizing people more than I care about a flag. I care about white and black Southerners and Americans coming together, as we’ve seen on the streets of Charleston, more than I care about a flag. I’d like to see more coming together.
We will have a future that can be so much better than what a lot of Southern and American heritage represents, but only if we stop thinking of each other as separate camps constantly at war. We can only improve to the degree that we begin viewing one another not as enemies to be attacked but brothers to be loved.”
You can’t bring people together by picking sides, and casting them out of “your movement.”
You can’t have relevance if you bring people across partisan lines together, you sure as shit can’t make any money off of people unless you bring down one set of people against the other, so that you have relevance and can indoctrinate them to your ideology so they are dependent on you, will listen to ONLY you, and send you money to keep you going, “for them!”
“The Confederate flag will always be a roadblock to the betterment of our natures. Let’s take it down so that we might all rise up.”
But we will never “rise up” with people like Hunter tearing us down, and pitting us against ourselves, Conservative vs. Republican, Republican vs. Libertarian, or name caller vs. other name callers…
Do you see the deception, the Bullshit, the unmitigated GALL of an ASSHOLE like Hunter, to use transference to subscribe his sins to his own people, and castigate and victimize them to absolve himself of his own sins, THEN have the gall to say that when we ALL do the same as Jack and engage in collective punishment against our own people, and treat other people SOLELY on the basis OF their race, which is what Martin Luther King DIED to eradicate, and all in the name of being tolerant and respectful to and be a part of society, you can see who Hunter serves, what Hunter serves, and to what ENDS Hunter serves…
Why was this racist, radio slug, brought back into respectable employment as a political editor of a website… So that he could be useful in balkanizing and pitting the people of the Liberty movement against each other, and make any and everybody who wasn’t a mainstream sellout Republican seem like the DEVIL.
But who is acting more like the devil these days…
Jack Hunter… or YOU!
He believes it is YOU!
I respectfully disagree…
