Ron Paul: Neocons Are Back With A Big War Budget & Big War Plans

“This isn’t a conspiracy theory. This is conspiracy fact…”

Neocons Are Back With A Big War Budget & Big War Plans:

By Ron Paul

On Friday, President Trump signed the omnibus spending bill for 2018. The $1.3 trillion bill was so monstrous that it would have made the biggest spender in the Obama Administration blush. The image of leading Congressional Democrats Pelosi and Schumer grinning and gloating over getting everything they wanted — and then some — will likely come back to haunt Republicans at the midterm elections. If so, they will deserve it.

Even President Trump admitted the bill was horrible. As he said in the signing ceremony, “there are a lot of things that we shouldn’t have had in this bill, but we were, in a sense, forced — if we want to build our military…”

This is why I often say: forget about needing a third political party – we need a second political party!

Trump is admitting that to fuel the warfare state and enrich the military-industrial complex, it was necessary to dump endless tax dollars into the welfare state.

Ron Paul Fears “Huge” Correction In Stocks, Warns “It’s Going To Be A Calamity”

Ron Paul Fears “Huge” Correction In Stocks, Warns “It’s Going To Be A Calamity”:

“I think we have a greater distortion and a financial danger sitting out there bigger than ever before,” warned former presidential candidate Ron Paul in an ominous interview with CNBC this week.

While markets briefly got nervous over Trump’s tariffs last week, Paul warns Wall Street is missing the bigger picture and that the real trouble stems from Fed policy and easy money

“If the Fed continues on the things that they are sort of planning on doing, it’s going to be a calamity.

The former Texas congressman explained that The Fed has made critical policy errors that have helped caused a “rigged economy.

It’s the debt, stupid, is Paul’s clear message…

Everything is just very burdened with debt, and there’s no stopping it.

According to Paul’s latest prediction, the February pullback may be just a blip compared to what’s ahead.

Ron Paul: After 15 Years, Perhaps We Should Listen To The Iraqi Parliament

Ron Paul: After 15 Years, Perhaps We Should Listen To The Iraqi Parliament:

This month marks the 15th anniversary of the US war on Iraq. The “shock and awe” attack was launched based on “stove-piped” intelligence fed from the CIA and Pentagon through an uncritical and compliant US mainstream media. The US media was a willing accomplice to this crime of aggression committed by the George W. Bush Administration.

Despite the lies we were constantly bombarded with, Iraq never presented a threat to the United States. Iraq never had the weapons of mass destruction that the neocons used to frighten Americans into supporting the war. How many of them knew all along that there were no WMDs? We’ll never know. Attacking Iraq and overthrowing its leader was long a plan in the neocon playbook and they used the 9/11 attack on the US as an excuse to pull the plan off the shelf and put it into action.

Ron Paul Warns America’s “On The Verge Of Something Like 1989’s Soviet System Collapse”

Ron Paul Warns America’s “On The Verge Of Something Like 1989’s Soviet System Collapse”:

Ron Paul does not believe the U.S. will break into separate countries, like the Soviet Union did, but expects changes in the U.S. monetary policy, as well as the crumbling of the country’s “overseas empire.”

The godfather of the Tea Party movement and perhaps the most prominent right-leaning libertarian in America, Ron Paul, believes the economic boom the United States experienced under President Trump could be a “bit of an illusion.”

Mr. Paul sees inequality, inflation, and debt as real threats that could potentially cause a turmoil.“the country’s feeling a lot better, but it’s all on borrowed money” and that “the whole system’s an illusion” built on corporate, personal, and governmental debt.

“It’s a bubble economy in many many different ways and it’s going to come unglued,”

In a recent interview with the Washington Examiner, Paul said,

Gold, Yuan, Or Crypto? Ron Paul Asks ‘What Will Replace Dollar Hegemony?’

Gold, Yuan, Or Crypto? Ron Paul Asks ‘What Will Replace Dollar Hegemony?’:

All Empires have collaborators and accomplices.

Creditors, vassals, and partners will play ball with the Empire if they see it in their interest to do so.

But once the Empire over-stretches militarily or financially (or both) the search for the exit door begins.

Ron Paul Says He Was “Surprised” His Followers Prefer Bitcoin To Gold

Ron Paul Says He Was “Surprised” His Followers Prefer Bitcoin To Gold:

Earlier this week, former Congressman Ron Paul posted a Twitter poll asking his followers to choose between four different assets for a long-term investment, with the stipulation that the bearer would need to keep their money locked up for ten years.

Paul admitted he was surprised when he saw that a majority of respondents – 54% – selected bitcoin over gold, dollars and a 10-year Treasury bond.

During an interview with the Street, a reporter asked Paul if he was surprised that his followers prefer bitcoin to gold.

Yea a little bit. I was a little bit – of course I wasn’t surprised that only 2% would store it in Federal Reserve notes, nor do they think they should buy Treasury bills. Gold has 36% but bitcoin has 54%…it’s the sort of information that tells me where my viewers are and what they’re thinking. Most of my viewers know how supportive I am of gold, and they know I’m tolerant of digital currencies.

Still, Paul believes cryptocurrencies are an interesting experiment and is generally supportive of their development and increasing popularity. But when asked for his thoughts on where bitcoin might be in ten years, he demurred.

Ron Paul Warns “Government Interest In Bitcoin Makes Me Nervous”

Ron Paul Warns “Government Interest In Bitcoin Makes Me Nervous”:

Former presidential candidate Ron Paul urged legalization of all competing cryptocurrencies to fiat during a televised phone interview with The Street’s Daniela Cambone, Editor-in-Chief for Canadian outlet Kitco News

As Coinivore reports, Paul noted how the trend seems to be that the government waits until something grows successful enough and then attempts to severely restrict it with regulations.

“If Bitcoin is a really good deal and a good process,” he said, “rest assured the government will be looking at it very carefully.”

Government interest in Bitcoin “makes me a little bit nervous,” he added, “people should be very cautious.”

As for currency competition, “If the people want Bitcoin and want to use it, the government should stay out of it,” he told Cambone.

Ron Paul Fears False Flag Looms, Urges Americans To Resist Deep State Push For War On North Korea (Video)

Ron Paul Fears False Flag Looms, Urges Americans To Resist Deep State Push For War On North Korea:

We are seeing now in regard to North Korea a replay of the type of campaign the deep state and the media used in 2001 through 2003 to stir up the American people to support the invasion of Iraq.

 The Ron Paul Institute’s Adam Dick writes that this is the assessment of former United States House of Representatives member and presidential candidate Ron Paul in a Tuesday interview with Alex Jones on the Alex Jones Show.

In the interview focused on US foreign policy and, in particular, relations between the US and North Korea, Paul declared:

In Angry Tweetstorm, Ron Paul Lashes Out At “Neocon” Trump

In Angry Tweetstorm, Ron Paul Lashes Out At “Neocon” Trump:

Roughly around the time Trump started his Afghanistan speech, Ron Paul tweeted out a cautiously optimistic note: “Hoping for the best in tonight’s @realDonaldTrump speech but fearful that foreign intervention is only going to get worse.  #Afghanistan.” Alas it was not meant to be, and over 20 tweets later in what proved to be the angriest tweetstorm of the night, Ron Paul had come to a conclusion: Trump is now nothing more than the latest neocon, one whom even Lindsey Graham applauded.

Below is a chronological rundown of Ron Paul’s progressively angier tweets, as he was live commenting on Trump’s speech:

Ron Paul To America: “Oppose Fascism of the Right and the Left”

Oppose Fascism of the Right and the Left:

By Ron Paul

Following the recent clashes between the alt-right and the group antifa, some libertarians have debated which group they should support. The answer is simple: neither. The alt-right and its leftist opponents are two sides of the same authoritarian coin.

The alt-right elevates racial identity over individual identity. The obsession with race leads them to support massive government interference in the economy in order to benefit members of the favored race. They also favor massive welfare and entitlement spending, as long as it functions as a racial spoils system. Some prominent alt-right leaders even support abortion as a way of limiting the minority population. No one who sincerely supports individual liberty, property rights, or the right to life can have any sympathy for this type of racial collectivism.

Ron Paul: “Attack Venezuela? Trump Can’t be Serious!”

Attack Venezuela? Trump Can’t be Serious!

There is something unsettling about how President Trump has surrounded himself with generals. From his defense secretary to his national security advisor to his White House chief of staff, Trump looks to senior military officers to fill key positions that have been customarily filled by civilians. He’s surrounded by generals and threatens war at the drop of a hat.

President Trump began last week by threatening “fire and fury” on North Korea. He continued through the week claiming, falsely, that Iran is violating the terms of the nuclear deal. He finally ended the week by threatening a US military attack on Venezuela.

He told reporters on Friday that,

Ron Paul: “We Must Declare Independence”

We Must Declare Independence:

By Ron Paul.

As Independence Day comes around again we should spend a few moments between barbecue and fireworks to think about the meaning of independence. The colonists who rebelled against the British Crown were, among other things, unhappy about taxation. Yet, as economist Gary North points out, the total burden of British imperial taxation was about one-to-two percent of national income.

Some 241 years later, Washington claims more of our money as its own than King George could have ever imagined. What do we get in this bargain? We get a federal government larger and more oppressive than before 1776, a government that increasingly views us as the enemy.

Ron Paul: Trump’s Budget Projections “Bear Little Or No Resemblance To Reality”:

Authored by Ron Paul via The Ron Paul Institute for Peace & Prosperity,

President Donald Trump’s proposed budget has generated hysteria among the American left. Prominent progressives have accused the president and his allies of wanting to kill children, senior citizens, and other vulnerable Americans.

The reaction of the president’s allies – including some conservatives who should know better – is equally detached from reality as they hail Trump for launching a major assault on the welfare state and making the hard choices necessary to balance the budget.

Ron Paul Warns Iran Is In The Crosshairs: “Neocons Are Still Writing The Script”

Neocons Are Still Writing The Script:

By Ron Paul

Iran has been in neocon crosshairs for a very long time. U.S. Presidential Administrations come and go, Democrat and Republican, but the neocon script has remained the same.

President Trump, voted in as an “outsider,” has adopted the insider script.

Today’s speech in Saudi Arabia was crafted by Trump’s neocon Senior Policy Advisor Stephen Miller.

Miller’s “long-time mentor” is David Horowitz. Here are Horowitz’s thoughts on Bush’s invasion of Iraq:

Ron Paul Warns “We Are In The Last Stages Of The Welfare-Warfare State”

Ron Paul Warns “We Are In The Last Stages Of The Welfare-Warfare State”:

Authored by Ron Paul via The Ron Paul Institute for Peace & Prosperity,

Congress ended the week by passing a continuing resolution keeping the government funded for one more week. This stopgap funding bill was designed to give Congress and the White House more time to negotiate a long-term spending bill. Passage of a long-term spending bill had been delayed over objections to Republican efforts to preserve Obamcare’s key features but give states a limited ability to opt out of some Obamacare mandates…[ZH: that longer-term bill has been agreed with the Democrats]

This type of brinkmanship has become standard operating procedure on Capitol Hill. The drama inevitably ends with a spending bill being crafted behind closed doors by small groups of members and staffers and then rushed to the floor and voted on before most members have a chance to read it. These “omnibus” spending bills are a dereliction of one of Congress’s two most important duties — allocating spending. Of course, Congress long ago abandoned another primary duty — preventing presidents from launching military attacks without first obtaining a congressional declaration of war.

Having blasted the Trump administration for their hyprocritical flip-flop from “loving WikiLeaks” to “arrest Assange,” Ron Paul made his feelings very clear on what this signals: “If we allow this president to declare war on those who tell the truth, we have only ourselves to blame.” Today he sits down with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange for a live interview…
