Once you become knowledgeable, you have an obligation to do something about it

The title is words directly from Ron Paul taken from a video (http://youtu.be/I8NhRPo0WAo) made by a supporter who tries to make a point about Paul's foreign policy of bringing the troops home. The video has gone semi-viral and although there is some truth is in it, the main concern and buzzword is blowback. It even early on shows one of the twin towers exploding - no building 7 footage though - but the message is still that Arabs did the deed. Blowback is a valid concept in that we do create more enemies each time we occupy and kill in foreign lands but I'm just tired of hearing the 9/11 official story being repeated in one form or the other. It's infuriating. Paul and his supporters are so afraid of telling the whole truth in fear that it would spoil his electability. I do understand why they do it but it doesn't mean I'm happy about it. It's another example of the means justifying the end I suppose. Politics as usual.

Criticisms and support of Dr. Paul come from all over. In the alternative blogs we find James and AP (http://twelfthbough.blogspot.com/2011/12/ron-paul-and-economic-theories-and.html) discussing Paul's monetary policies and how they are somewhat misguided knowing what we know about who controls the gold, b'man (http://buelahman.wordpress.com/2011/12/22/ron-paul-the-consumate-controlled-opposition/) is quite emphatic that we are being set up and aangirfan (http://aangirfan.blogspot.com/2011/12/iowa-laughingstock-of-country.html) weighs in with the questions of why Paul would continue to be a Reagan apologist in the aftermath of the carnage since his administration. On the flip side we have Video Rebel (http://vidrebel.wordpress.com/2011/12/22/lets-bankrupt-fox-news-and-abc-nbc-cbs-cnn-msnbc-too/#comments) , John Friend (http://mrfriendsblog.blogspot.com/2011/12/will-american-people-buy-attempts-to.html) and WRH (http://whatreallyhappened.com/), among others, saying that Dr. Paul is the only hope we have to avoid World War III and the bankers new world disorder. I think it's safe to say that the only thing we're going to agree on is that all the rest of the candidates are proven traitors to this country, Obama included. Elections are painful instead of a celebration of democracy, the republic and hope for the world.

It's not a matter of who the American people want as president. It's who those in the background want. The bankers want a puppet who will allow the continuation of the plunder. The war contractors want a puppet who will keep their industry of death intact. Other major string pullers have their own agendas. The wild card is who does Israel want?

Who will continue the policies of A Clean Break (http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article1438.htm) and PNAC (http://www.newamericancentury.org/) and the complete balkanazation of the Middle East? Israel has not gotten this close to their 'dream' to let it slip away. Iran, Syria and Lebanon are the missing pieces and if Venezuela and Cuba (http://youtu.be/z8bCbXIg3dQ) can be added to the mix so much the better for the neocons and zionists. The bottom line is that all the candidates will allow it to happen. In the unlikely event of Dr. Paul winning and following through with his threats to cut off Israel's aid and end the ongoing wars, it could force Israel's hand. One of the whores of Babylon, Michele Bachmann, made the observation that Paul would allow a nuclear attack (http://youtu.be/d5XHgw9h3QA) on the U.S. before he would do anything because she knows that with their back to the wall, Israel would pull the false flag out again and the wars are on again. A big question is why Israel would think that they could survive a major war? Maybe they're not supposed to? The centers of power possibly could still exist without them, world population would be reduced and the narrative of 'victims' would add a new chapter to further the one world dictatorship. Slowly but surely a number of Israelis are waking up to the fact that unless they change direction they won't be around much longer anyway so the end game may need a push before that idea takes hold. Some jews have no problem sacrificing their own for the benefit of a few. Some Americans don't either. Those at the top of the planning always think they have an escape route. They may be wrong.

The splintering of the Republican party with the infighting and name calling brings up what could happen if no one comes out to be a clear cut leader with the potential of beating Obama. The convention could reject them all and draft someone else. Jeb Bush (http://welcome-to-pottersville2.blogspot.com/2011/12/draft-jeb-movement-takes-off-i-told-you.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+WelcomeToPottersville2bloggin gAgainstFascism+(Welcome+to+Pottersville+2+(Bloggi ng+Against+Fascism!))) has been mentioned but that's a long shot. Michael Bloomberg (http://draftmichael.com/) is a possibility along with Chris Christie (http://draftchrischistie2012.com/) who continues to get face time in the MSM and his first official overseas trip (http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2011/10/gov_christie_to_travel_to_isra.html) as governor will be to Israel next year. As strange as things are getting, I wouldn't be surprised to see a drafted nominee who doesn't have the baggage of the primaries and would jump right into the debates with Obama with little time for a protracted analysis of their past. Still, any one of these would be Israel first, America second.

I see the last three presidential elections as having a designated loser. The winner was chosen in advance; Gore, Kerry and McCain were never meant to win. That brings up the question ... has Obama pleased his masters enough for them to want him back or will there be a new president? Only the electronic voting machines and those that control them know for sure.



A Ron Paul Christmas?

In a few days many of us will gather together with family and friends to celebrate something or the other and talk will turn to politics sooner or later. Even if some in the family want to enforce the 'rule' of no politics or religion on holidays like some in my family do, the 'rule' will be broken. The fussin' and cussin' about government and politicians is going to happen and Ron Paul will come up. What do we say? An undying adulation of the man probably won't change many minds but an honest critique of what he is saying might. We may also have to pick and choose what message will be effective. Around the dinner table is not the internet so sound bytes may have to suffice. I don't know about you but talking about usury, monetary policy, the Fed, a gold standard, contrived debt that can never be re-payed and so on are too often met with blank stares. Voodoo economics is actually a good term for it and not very many are knowledgeable in this type of voodoo. People understand the economy is screwed but the solutions are kept evasive and that's by design.

I'll just start with my standard; "Does the government and media ever lie to us?" I've never met a person who would answer that with a no. Perhaps then on to the wars and possible wars to come. "Aren't all wars based on lies and deceptions?" "Is the cost in lives and treasure worth it if it's all for lies?" Are we willing to risk World War III or at the least 2, 3 or 4 hundred dollar a barrel oil if we attack Iran?" How will that effect us?" Is ending the 'War on Drugs' in our best interests or do we continue to allow government sponsored drug running and money laundering?" "Doesn't Christianity promote peace?" "Didn't Christianity negate the idea of the 'chosen ones' and their supremacist myths?" "Does render unto Caesar mean we just ignore lies, fraud and killing?" "Does speaking out against the war mongering thieving government and their banking masters justify the possibility of be detained indefinitely without charges to silence us and as an example to keep the rest silent?"

Whew ..... getting a little wound up there. But maybe that's what it takes.

Will I promote a Ron Paul nomination to those who still vote within the system? Yes ... if only to keep the anti-war, pro-humanity narrative alive. Just to have the issue of Israel 'on the table' no matter how limited is worth it. No other candidate will dare to do anything but grovel at the jews feet and unfortunately Ron does a bit of that himself by recognizing Israel as a legitimate state and by not denouncing groups such as AIPAC and the ADL as foreign agents who work against the majority of Americans and their interests. Where we think Dr. Paul is wrong, we'll point it out. Where he is afraid to go, we will go. We can expand the ideas beyond what any politician is willing to do. We have little to lose by doing so and it's getting late. The lessor of all evils is not the best option but please, someone point out what else we can do at this time besides not voting at all or opting out of the system entirely which for most is not going to happen. Dr. Paul may be controlled opposition. He definitely is the designated dissenter of the moment. He is not the 'savior.' It really rests on our actions and to paraphrase ... "Citizen, heal thyself."

Ron Paul: Race, Ritual and the Scottish Rite (http://cryptogon.com/?p=26833)January 6th, 2012Disclosure: I sent $20 to Ron Paul’s 2012 Presidential campaign, even though I don’t vote in U.S. Presidential elections, and haven’t since I voted for Ross Perot in 1996. See: Waiting for Clarity on the Brink of Oblivion (http://cryptogon.com/archives/2006_11_01_blogarchive_month.html#1162856859054510 25), for my opinion on national elections in the U.S.

While many of you might quickly write off the Secret Sun post below as a descent into apophenia, stick with it.
I didn’t know that Ron Paul’s wife was Eastern Star and his daughters were Rainbow Girls, for example. I also wasn’t aware of the 2008 Ron Paul and Freemasonry magathread over on Aftermath News (http://aftermathnews.wordpress.com/2008/04/22/ron-paul-and-freemasonry/).
Click through for copious links and images.
Via: Secret Sun (http://secretsun.blogspot.com/2012/01/ron-paul-race-ritual-and-scottish-rite.html):
But is Paul a Freemason? One fact people have pointed out is that Ron Paul’s wife is Eastern Star and his daughters are Rainbow, an arrangement essentially unheard of for a man who is not in fact a Mason himself.
In this handwritten letter (note the reverse of the Great Seal) to a “Charlotte” published on his site Paul denies being a “Freemason.” And here’s where we come to the classic non-denial denial. A “Free” Mason is a member of the Ancient, Free and Accepted Masonic Order. There are other Orders that do not define themselves as “Free.” Several, actually.
And as longtime secret Sun readers know, the Free-masons are the low men on a much bigger Masonic totem pole in which Masonic-inspired and Masonic-created fraternities and secret societies wield the true power. And here’s where we hit paydirt…
Paul is a proud member in good standing of Lambda Chi Alpha, yet another Masonically-created fraternity that is classified as a “secret” fraternity. Lambda Chi traces its origins to Boston (birthplace of American Freemasonry) and Phila(e)delphia, in Paul’s native Pennsylvania. Here’s an obituary of Lambda Chi’s founding father, John E. “Jack” Mason (seriously).
Funeral services were held on Wednesday, June 5, at the Oliver H. Bair funeral parlors in Philadelphia. Cremation and private burial were in Woodland Cemetery. Masonic services were conducted by Lodge 51, of which he was a past master, the preceding evening with his close friend and associate, past Grand High Alpha Fischer, in his station of senior warden.
That Lambda Chi is in fact a Masonic fraternity and not just a drinking club is made clear by its original seal, prominently featuring a Masonic handshake. Lambda Chi also includes an inner body called “The Mason’s Circle,” a classic example of esoteric double-entendre.
It’s current seal also features the handshake, which is overshadowed now by explicit Knights Templar (and Solar) iconography, as well as the cojoining of the cross and the crescent, which is a byword for the Order.
