Y’know. Reading this Ron Paul solicitation for one of his newsletters…
… The, uh, Ron Paul Survival Report?…
Actually, no. But it is the Ron Paul Survival Package.
It hits me right with the opening…
Dear Fellow American.
This might be a preview of the themes a President Ron Paul will go in for his State of the Union Addresses.
You may not have much time left.
Next year, or next month, the New Money could wipe you out — destroy everything you’ve worked and saved for — and leave your family destitute.
It could happen any time. And I don’t mind telling you I’m scared. For myself, for my family, for my friends, for my country.
We’ve seen a lot of financial tyrannies from Washington in this century. This one could take the cake. And popping out of the cake, with a big Surprise!, will be an IRS agent with an AK-47.
I uncovered the New Money plans during my last term in the U.S. Congress, and I held the ugly new bills in my hands. I can tell you — they made my skin crawl.
Yeah, I kind of like the old designs better myself.
Thank goodness, a patriotic American within the Federal Reserve told me about this financial Manhattan Project. But this time, the government wants to drop the bomb on us.
To manufacture the New Money, the feds have built a colossal blockhouse in Ft. Worth, Texas, as ugly as it is evil. Designed in Stalin-style, guarded by KGB-level security, and full of three-color printing presses and spy device embedders, it belongs in Moscow, not Texas.
Stage One of the New Money — microprinting and a polyester thread — was meant to lull us to sleep, before the knife fell. But the bureaucrats’ scheme went awry when the old Bureau of Engraving and Printing plant in Washington, D.C., couldn’t handle the new technology.
They’ve fixed that now, and Stage Two will chill your blood.
“As Ugly as it is evil.” Well… y’know… for the purpose of dramatic storytelling you can’t have beautiful architecture home of evil doing.
I’ve been told not to talk, but these stooges don’t scare me. Threats or no threats, I’ve laid bare the coming race war in big cities. The federal-homosexual cover-up on AIDS (my training as a physician helps me see through this one.)
And yet… his training as a physician was of no use in helping him see through this one.
In 1988, Ron had a hardcore Libertarian supporter, Jim Peron, Owner of Laissez Faire Books in San Francisco. Jim set up a magnificent 3-day campaign swing for us in the SF Bay Area. Jim was what you would call very openly Gay. But Ron thought the world of him. For 3 days we had a great time trouncing from one campaign event to another with Jim’s Gay lover. The atmosphere was simply jovial between the four of us. (As an aside we also met former Cong. Pete McCloskey during this campaign trip.) We used Jim’s home/office as a “base.” Ron pulled me aside the first time we went there, and specifically instructed me to find an excuse to excuse him to a local fast food restaurant so that he could use the bathroom. He told me very clearly, that although he liked Jim, he did not wish to use his bathroom facilities. I chided him a bit, but he sternly reacted, as he often did to me, Eric, just do what I say. Perhaps “sternly” is an understatement. Ron looked at me directly, and with a very angry look in his eye, and shouted under his breath: “Just do what I say NOW.” [...]
Again, let me stress. I would not categorize that as “homo-phobic,” but rather just unsettled by being around gays personally.
Anyway… back to all that other crap.
The Bohemian Grove — perverted, pagan playground of the powerful. Skull & Bones: the demonic fraternity that includes George Bush and leftist Senator John Kerry, Congress’s Mr. New Honey. The Israeli lobby, which plays Congress like a cheap harmonica. And the Soviet-style “smartcard” the Justice Department has in mind for you.
There is something… something… there with Skull and Bones… and Bohemian Grove, but it’s a realm of soft conspiracy –like: the Rich and Elite are allowed the luxury of having done stupid things that the rest of us don’t get to get away with… which, like, if you’re in a court hearing would be used against you as sort of character bloodying. And we have just one just connector in the power structure up there.
And damned John Kerry wouldn’t let himself free himself from the grip of Skull and Bones on Meet the Press back in 2004.
Those who act decisively — and have the right information to act on — will survive the New Money and big government’s other economic calamities. In fact, history shows that bad times offer the greatest profit opportunities.
A liberal clergyman sneered: “Isn’t it immoral to benefit from catastrophe?” I told him, “No, not if you didn’t cause it.” In fact, the few who preserve and even increase their wealth in the coming chaos will be needed to rebuild America.
I suppose it’s hear that I have to ask… given that we’ve had what, I guess(?) is the Great Catastrophe and Big Economic Calamity… have the Ron Paul Investor profited and are they rebuilding America as we speak?
Surviving the New Money, the Ron Paul Investment Letter and the Ron Paul Political Report will be your survival kit, and if you act now, you can get this $224 value for just $99 — 55% off!
The scene is preceded by an image of of a building that’s been converted into a “United World Temple” emblazoned with UN flags, and immediately followed by images of soldiers and guerillas fighting in the streets.
This is exactly what you’d expect from the John Birch Society, an organization that has spent four decades urging the United States to leave the United Nations. It’s not what you’d expect from a serious Republican presidential candidate. It’s not even the kind of language you tend to hear from Paul on the campaign trail, where he’s more likely to talk about raw milk than the New World Order. And that’s been Paul’s best defense; the newsletters just don’t sound like anything he’s ever said.
That’s partially true, but in the last few days, we’ve seen a clip (from 1990) of Paul embracing the idea that the Trilateral Commission and Council on Foreign Relations are secretly running the country, and now this. Josh Marshall reminds us, meanwhile, that back in September, Paul said that the border fence might actually be used to keep Americans penned in. Setting the racist articles aside, Paul really did endorse some of the more out-there arguments in his newsletters.
What? You think that the John Birch Society and the realm of conspiracnoia took after him in a vacuum?
This is something like the tip of the iceberg.
“I disavow those positions,” he said in the interview. “They’re not my positions, and anybody who knows me, they’ve never heard a word of it.”
Ron Paul. At least he’s a fascinating politician — unlike the most of the other ones.
And, sure, I believe that he didn’t write the solicitation letter, signed by him and employed with the first person pronoun and promoting “Ron Paul” brand items. Yet…
