The Real Ron Paul stood up alright

As hard as it is to say about any politician in the United States today, especially at the federal level, I find Ron Paul to be a sincere, consistent, decent man. It's quite clear to me that he is the only sane individual involved in the current shit show commonly known as the 2012 election. There are many issues that I agree with him on -- ending our empire of military bases and foreign wars, auditing and eventually eliminating the private Federal Reserve Bank, ending the War on Drugs and their criminalization, his overall message concerning individual liberty and personal freedom, and repealing the un-Constitutional Patriot Act (and other illegal War on Terror-initiated federal laws and policies).

I think most clear thinking individuals would agree with those issues. But when it comes to major, 'Deep State' issues -- like 9/11 -- Ron Paul fails miserably.

TAPPER: One of your former close aides recently said that you, quote, “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.” So have you ever expressed in front of anyone…

PAUL: Now, wait, wait, wait, wait. Don’t — don’t go any further on that. That’s complete nonsense.

TAPPER: It’s nonsense?

PAUL: Just stop that.

TAPPER: Not true?

PAUL: Yeah, no. I did not — I never bought into that stuff. I never talked about it.


PAUL: About the conspiracy of Bush — of Bush knowing about this? No, no, come on. Come on. Let’s be reasonable.


PAUL: That’s just off-the-wall.
Full video here.

Ron Paul has said similar things about 9/11 'conspiracy theories' in the past. Video found via aangirfan.

And he not only fails miserably on arguably the most important event in recent memory, he uses disinfo, CIA-coined theories to explain his foreign policy stances, perpetuating the War on Terror mythology. Yesterday, we read in Townhall.com:

May I have your attention please? Will the real Ron Paul please stand up? I repeat, will the real Ron Paul please stand up?

I keep hearing the same three rumors about Paul: He blames America for 9/11, he’s anti-Israel and he’s pro-Iran. So, who is the real Ron Paul?
Kieffer goes on to show how Ron Paul does not blame the United States as a country for 9/11, arguing instead that 9/11 occurred as a result of the foreign policies pursued by the United States government.  He and others promote a CIA-coined limited-hangout theory called 'blowback', which contends that attacks like 9/11 are the result of the destabilizing foreign policies prosecuted by the United States over the years. Chalmers Johnson explains:
"Blowback" is a CIA term first used in March 1954 in a recently declassified report on the 1953 operation to overthrow the government of Mohammed Mossadegh in Iran. It is a metaphor for the unintended consequences of the US government's international activities that have been kept secret from the American people.
There can be no doubt that many of the destructive policies that have and continue to be prosecuted will result in blowback.  But let's be serious here: the United States government has engaged consistently in covert operations aimed at destabilizing other countries, including false flag terrorism, assassination, drug/weapons/human smuggling, espionage, and other forms of warfare.  In fact, the United States government has utilized these illegal tactics on it's own people on numerous occasions, 9/11 being one of the more obvious examples. And since Ron Paul fails the 9/11 litmus test, I cannot support him.  I am hereby issuing a mea culpa in regards to my post about two weeks ago, in which I argue that we all should be supporting Ron Paul.


  1. All media reports I've seen indicate Ron Paul came in 3rd in the Iowa Caucus. Surprise, surprise -- they wouldn't dare let him win the GOP nomination. My guess is he'll end up having to run as a third party candidate.

  2. Good work John. Thank you.

    Now the litmus test.
    Contact every blog on your page and
    ask them one simple question...
    Why won't they link to iamthewitness.com?
    Like you do.

    Sit back in awe at the deafening silence.

  3. Great piece of work here...


  4. Thanks Anon, ZCF has the best info if you want a historical run down of this crime gang.

    And that is a damn good question: why don't others link to Daryl's website, iamthewitness.com?

    I've said before that his site woke me up more to this conspiracy than any other site. In fact, he linked to ZCF's work, which is when I read 'Israel did 911 - All the Proof'. That's how I got this blog started. It's a mystery to me why others don't link to his extremely informative site.

  5. Hey John,

    Happy New Year!

    Speaking of Ron Paul .. I think that he has no desire to meet the same fate as JFK, so that's why he wouldn't touch 9/11.

    Just like any other trained politicians, he speaks half truth and leaves out the rest. Since we still have thinking power left among us, we still can manage to read between the lines delivered by the politicians. How 'bout rest of the country? Ummm ... Zilch.

    Earlier I saw perv murdoch twitting away - going gaga over sick insanetorum. Just spotted devil Pat Robertson "God Told Me Who The Next President Will Be" !!!


    I rather have that fake ancient Mayan prediction happening over g_d picking our future President!

  6. This whole damned thing is nothing more than a 'dog and pony' show that is designed to trick Americans into thinking they actualy choose, then vote into office the prez of their choice.

    What a superb con job, to trick most Americans into thinking that we still have a democratic republic.

    Uncle Joe Stalin was right, it's not those voting that counts, but those who count the votes.

  7. Good work John!

    Anon@10:14 - Good point. For some reason, I and many have tried, but his site refuses to go on blog-role. It won't update or even show up.

  8. Let's see the list of blogs linking to iamthewitnes.com.

    1:Mr Friend's (that's 1)
    2:WRH... (yeah, right)
    3:Alex Jones (when pigs..)

    How about we really out the gutless shills? Finally.
    Feel free to add to the list.

  9. Hey John

    As long as Ron Paul touted the gold standard he was a non starter.
    He was a tool of the bankers.

    IMHO anyway.

    How come so many are moderating comments now? Just curious?
    Have I missed something that happened?

  10. Hey everyone, thanks for the input!

    Hey Penny! I turned it on a while back because I kept getting Anonymous smear comments! I'll leave it on for now, but may end up changing it in the future.

  11. Thanks Timster.

    I had an idea DBS was being censored
    at the isp level.

    Go to your local hospital, library, ...etc..it's the same.
    Homeland BS Insecurity software blocks all.

    Timster, maybe you and the rest being blocked could ask your isp
    and or blogroll..umm..why?
    Not that anybody should hold their breath mind you.
    Somehow tho, I'd guess it's not
    a problem at #2 and 3 above.
    And a %&#*load of "other" sites.


  12. Go to your local hospital, library, ...etc..it's the same.
    Homeland BS Insecurity software blocks all

    My local library had the anti-war site, "Anti-War" blocked, until I complained about the block.

    When I asked why a site that was against all these wars was blocked, the librarian got all huffy and refused to answer.

    Josef Goebbels, take a bow.

    Guess I better go back and check to make sure they haven't blocked that site again.

  13. And that is a damn good question: why don't others link to Daryl's website, iamthewitness.com?

    The first attempt to go to "iamthewitness.com" site got me to this link: http://ww38.iamthewitnes.com/

    It appears someone--hmm, wonder who--has or is trying to hijack the original "iamthewitness.com" blog with one promoting Zionism and is polluted with ad links.

  14. iamthewitness.com is often blocked in public places in my experience.

    They even blocked Anti-War.com?! Wow, that surprises me, they usually only block the real truth tellers, not the limited hangout, disinfo types like Anti-War.com. They put out some good info, but I can't stand that Scott Horton dude anymore... haven't visited the site or listened to his radio show for some time now. I sent him some emails regarding 9/11, and he accused me of being a Jew hating, anti-Semite. The guy is a fraudster, weak-minded shill!
