“The Neo-Conservative Era is Dead”

The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity has been launched, and doesn’t the world need it. According to the media advisory:

The Ron Paul Institute will focus on the two issues most important to Dr. Paul, education and coming generations. It will fill the growing demand for information on foreign affairs from a non-interventionist perspective through a lively and diverse website, and will provide unique educational opportunities to university students and others […]

The ill-advised policies pushed by the neo-cons have everywhere led to chaos and destruction, and to a hatred of the United States and its people. Multi-trillion dollar wars have not made the world a safer place; they have only bankrupted our economic future. The Ron Paul Institute will provide the tools and the education to chart a new course with the understanding that only through a peaceful foreign policy can we hope for a prosperous tomorrow.

RT covered it this way:

Ron Paul retires at the election. He would have given a speech at this week’s Romney-worship, but the gangster, fascist, warmongering Republican Party will allow no dissent to sully the Coronation and so demanded that any speech be vetted first. Ron Paul, always beyond price and principled to the end, declined. Instead, the GOP will air a “tribute video” this evening. Oh yeah, that’ll be great.

This below is a real tribute to the greatest man who ever went to Washington; his magnificent “What if”? speech, made on the floor of the House three years ago, set to Metallica. It strangely works.

Not only are the President-elect’s economic forecasts amazingly prescient, so are his predictions regarding domestic and foreign policy and world affairs. Is he a seer? Does he have a crystal ball? No, but he truly understands government and economics and he has a first-class intellect. Then he demonstrates how big his balls are by making his predictions on the floor of the House.

This is hot. Steve Forbes is very much an insider, and a very sharp one at that. If he’s calling for Ron Paul to head up the Fed then the times are changing.

Speaking of President-elect Paul, Professors Howard Rosenthal and Keith Poole studied every Congressman and President from 1937 to date and listed the top ten most conservative. Who is the most conservative? Need anyone ask?

Yep… Ron Paul is #1 […] He is without a doubt the most ideologically consistent and conservative man to have served in Congress since 1937, if not in the entire history of the United States.

I remain genuinely stumped that not every Republican has concluded that he is exactly what America needs.

(The American) Tax Freedom Day in 1900 fell on 22nd January. This year, thanks in most part to the (unconstitutional and unratified) 16th Amendment, and the Federal Reserve Act, which followed a few months later in 1913, Tax Freedom Day fell yesterday, 17th April. Such has been the monstrous growth of the federal government in the last century and the concomitant loss of liberty.

Incidentally, Tax Freedom Day ought to be much later in the year, given how much federal government spending is borrowed now for the young and unborn to pay back many years hence. Nevertheless, to mark the day Ron Paul issued a truly manful and American statement which read in part (my emphasis):

Knowing that every penny the average American has earned from January 1st until today has gone to pay federal, state, or local taxes is a frightening reminder of how much liberty modern Americans have lost.  Unfortunately, even after Tax Freedom Day, Americans will still suffer from the Federal Reserve’s regressive and hidden inflation tax, which erodes their purchasing power for the benefit of big banks and big-spending politicians…

My ultimate goal remains to repeal the 16th Amendment and end the tyranny of the IRS once and for all.  Of the four men seeking the presidential nomination of one of the major parties – President Obama, Governor Romney, Speaker Gingrich, and myself – I am the only one who has consistently opposed increases in taxes and spending.  I am also the only one who has consistently fought the Federal Reserve’s assault on the middle class’ standard of living.  My campaign to Restore America Now is the clear choice for any American concerned about rolling back taxes, cutting spending, and curbing inflation.

Now that’s a statement of intent. No wonder the establishment has done everything, up to and including blatant vote fraud, to diddle him of the nomination.

The best explanation yet!

Great stuff from Tom Woods, who just gets better and better. Ahead of Super Duper Mega Tuesday the historian, author and senior fellow of the Ludwig von Mises Institute attempts to answer the unanswerable and reveals himself to be a first class piss taker along the way. It’s particularly recommended for Republican drones.

NB: Tom Woods’ explanation for the rotten state of our economies is still the clearest one out there.

President-elect Paul leaves the campaign trail … to vote against the debt ceiling increase.

The ‘mainstream’ bobbleheads on TV and the talk radio blowhards are in perfect agreement on one thing: Ron Paul is unelectable (so good citizens must ignore him).

And that shows you what the bobbleheads and blowhards know.

Michael Scheuer, ex-Chief of the CIA bin Laden Unit, speaks with the great Judge Napolitano. This is what you call an endorsement –

I also recommend this fascinating 55-minute interview with Scheuer, carried out at Berkeley, as part of a “Conversations with History” series. As well as being an intelligent and thoughtful man, Scheuer is a candid and amiable speaker who walks listeners through a history of US relations with bin Laden and Al Qaeda from the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan and much of the history of terrorism and counter-terror efforts since.

In case anyone’s assuming he’s a dove, he certainly is not so. He’s quite hawish and he’s certainly an American patriot and nationalist who believes absolutely that the US must defend itself. But what is apparent in listening to him is that many ‘our’ assumptions are dangerously wrong and that we have, indeed, often been misled, particularly with regard to what motivates islamic terror. Whoever becomes the next president could do much worse than send him to the State Department.

Citizens, reject those independent thoughts!
