December 21, 2011 - From the remorseless liars that brought America into the Iraq War, have kept the US mired in Afghanistan for now over a decade, oversaw the genocide in Libya wrought by NATO-backed Al Qaeda terrorists, and are attempting to incite war with both Syria and Iran, comes a frothing, if not entirely elementary attack against one of the few obstacles that stands in their way of perpetual war fought at America’s expense but for their personal gain.
That obstacle is Ron Paul and the Constitutional reawakening he has spurred. Leading the charge is a slightly misfitting addition to the Neo-Conservative corporate-fascist propaganda machine, openly-homosexual warmongering “libertarian” James Kirchick. While Kirchick’s sexual orientation really is a matter of his own personal business, the necessity of him making it a public issue and the fact that those he works for have used anti-homosexual rhetoric to manipulate the American political landscape for decades is already a display of undermining and astounding hypocrisy.
Kirchick’s argument is based on the same tired, already addressed “newsletter” published in Ron Paul’s name decades ago, and despite none of the articles cited by Kirchick actually even being written by Ron Paul, he still enjoys preceding each accusation with, “He says…” Kirchick’s servile obedience to the Neo-Con agenda, which has cultivated and is directing Ron Paul’s competition - Cain, Romney, Perry, and Gingrich - is fairly obvious to detect. However, it is now a matter of record that Kirchick literally sits, as a “fellow” within a Neo-Con corporate and US State Department-funded think-tank, the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (FDD).
The FDD features as its “executive team,” the likes of James Woolsey and Clifford May while its “leadership council” includes Paula Dobriansky, Steve Forbes, Max Kampelman, Bill Kristol, and Senator Joseph Lieberman. Richard Perle, Eric Cantor, Gary Bauer, and Charles Krauthammer sit on the FDD’s “board of advisors,” while Reuel Marc Gerecht, Bill Roggio, and James Kirchick himself sit as FDD “fellows.” Truly exemplary of everything that is wrong with America, and everything Ron Paul and the ideals he promotes aim at fixing, the FDD is a weed that needs to be pulled from America’s political landscape. (For further reading regarding these names, please see “NED & Freedom House are run by Warmongering Imperialists,” “Neo-Cons for Human Rights?” and to see a good example of FDD’s contrived propaganda exposed and in action, “Neo-Con Infomercial: Iranium.”)
A great look at the machinations behind the scenes and the people who wield incredible power behind the scenes in our government and by slopping their mass to one side of the boat or the other can steer the great ship America to horrible ends.
When The Pentagon is spending billions per year and employing nearly 30,000 people purely for the purpose of “recruitment, public relations and advertising” it might help to have a little healthy skepticism.
Libertarians were well-represented at this year’s CPAC, but given Ron Paul’s victory, should that be expected? After the victory, the mainline “conservative” reaction has been to downplay, marginalize and slander libertarians at large and minimize the impact of Ron Paul’s victory at the straw poll.
Fox News has now been caught manipulating video feeds from last year’s straw poll (also a Ron Paul victory) and this years to make Dr. Paul’s victory seem less powerful and popular.
We all know the GOP has strayed far from its Constitutional roots, now they’re complaining when liberty groups show up and call them out on their follies. As of right now, neo-cons control the rhetoric, but that seems to be changing.
Here’s a clip from the slanderous article by Kevin McCullough at Foxnews.com that accuses “disrespectful” libertarians of “hijacking” CPAC:
“Libertarians and Conservatives are as different as Libertarians and Liberals. The truth is libertarians are the worst form of political affiliation in the nation. Combining the desire of economic greed, with the amoral desire to promote any behavior regardless of its cost to our culture is a stark departure from the intent of the Founding Fathers.”
What a crock….
CPAC had its fair share of silver haired conservatives that propose legislating morality, yet hold their hand out for immoral wealth transfers via Social Security and Medicare. However, the demographics of the conservative movement are changing. Over half of the 3,742 people that voted in the 2011 CPAC Straw Poll were under 26 years of age. With groups such as Young Americans for Liberty exploding in membership we can expect many good things to come.
As this young generation of liberty-lovers grows up we will see their influence become a force on American politics.
