Brainwashed Paulbots

by Donna Garner –

How can there still be people in this country who are voting for Ron Paul?  How naïve, brainwashed, and indoctrinated can they be? We may be on the verge of nuclear war with Iran over the Strait of Hormuz (please read Debka article posted below), yet Ron Paul still thinks Iran deserves to have nuclear weapons of its own. Whether we like it or not, Iran is not just going to take its “marbles” and go home!

I have posted further on down the page the most comprehensive, well-documented report on Ron Paul that I have ever seen.  Ron Paul is not a Republican.  – Donna Garner]

Russian, French warships off Syria, Iran, US drones over Iranian coast
DEBKAfile Special Report January 9, 2012, 10:21 AM (GMT+02:00)

US, Russian French and British air and naval forces streamed to the Syrian and Iranian coasts over the weekend on guard for fresh developments at the two Middle East flashpoints.

The Russian carrier Admiral Kuznetsov anchored earlier than planned at Syria’s Tartus port on the Mediterranean Sunday, Jan. 8, arriving together with the destroyer Admiral Chabanenko and frigateYaroslav Mudry.
To counter this movement, France consigned an air defense destroyer Forbin to the waters off Tartus.

DEBKAfile‘s military sources report a buildup in the last 48 hours of western naval forces opposite Iran in the Persian Gulf and Arabian Sea in readiness for Tehran to carry out its threat to close the Strait of Hormuz.

Britain has dispatched the HMS Daring, a Type 45 destroyer armed with new technology for shooting down missiles, to the Sea of Oman, due to arrive at the same time as the FrenchCharles de Gaulle aircraft carrier.

Our sources report too that Saturday, the giant RQ-4 Global Hawk UAV, took off from the USS Stenning aircraft carrier for surveillance over the coasts of Iran.

The Stennis and its strike group are cruising in the Sea of Oman at the entrance to the Strait of Hormuz after Tehran announced it would not be allowed to cross through.
This was the first time the US has deployed unmanned aerial vehicles over Iran since its RQ-170 stealth drone was shot down by Iran on Dec. 4. It was also the first time the huge drone was ordered to take off from an aircraft carrier for a Broad Aerial Maritime Surveillance Mission (BAMS).

US military sources reported Monday, Jan. 9 that the Global Hawk’s mission is “to monitor sea traffic off the Iranian coast and the Straits of Hormuz.” The US Navy was ordered to maintain a watch on this traffic, another first, after Iranian Navy chief Adm. Habibollah Sayyari said in a televised broadcast Sunday night that the Strait of Hormuz was under full Iranian control and had been for years.
Also Sunday, Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the US Chiefs of Staff, warned in no uncertain terms that Iran has the ability to block the Strait of Hormuz “for a period of time.”  He added in a CBS interview:  “We’ve invested in capabilities to ensure that if that happens, we can defeat that.” Gen. Dempsey went on to emphasize: “Yes, they can block it. We’ve described that as an intolerable act and it’s not just intolerable for us, it’s intolerable to the world. But we would take action and reopen the straits.”
Appearing on the same program, US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta warned of a quick, decisive and very tough American response to any Iranian attempt to close the Strait of Hormuz.

 

They both spoke a few hours after a spokesman for the Revolutionary Guards said the supreme Iranian leadership had ruled the Strait must be closed in the event of an oil embargo imposed on Iran by the European Union.

 

DEBKAfile‘s military sources report the constant escalation of military tension around Iran and Syria in recent days as not just stemming from the rapid advances Iran is making toward production of a nuclear weapon, but from fears in the West and Israel that Tehran and Damascus are in step over their military plans for the Persian Gulf and Mediterranean sectors.

 

After the Admiral Kuznetsov docked in Tartus Sunday with much fanfare, the Syrian Navy commander Dawoud Rajha was received on the deck by a guard of honor of marines under a flyover of Russian Su-33 and Su-25 fighter-bombers. This was taken as a signal of Moscow’s willingness to back the Assad regime up against any Western military intervention as well as a gesture of support for cooperation between Syria and Iran in their operational plans.

 

Sunday, the Iranian media issued divergent statements about the situation at Iran’s underground uranium enrichment plant at Fordo, near Qom: In English, the site as described as going on stream soon, while the Farsi media reported it was already operational.

 

The head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization Fereydoun Abbasi Davani declared furthermore,” …the Islamic Republic is capable of exporting services related to nuclear energy to other countries.”

 

This statement showed that Tehran has no fear of raising the level of its threats to the West up to the point of offering to hand out its nuclear technology to other countries in a gesture of uncontrolled proliferation.

 

=======================

 

 

Ron Paul: Hostile To Our Military

 

 Ron Paul has teamed with far-left liberal Barney Frank (D-MA) to propose massive reductions in military spending, far beyond those Barack Obama is imposing. Obama is instituting approximately $500 billion in cuts to the Pentagon’s budget over the next ten years. In 2010, Paul and Frank pushed a proposal by the Sustainable Defense Task Force calling for cuts of $1 trillion.i Not surprisingly, most members on the Sustainable Defense Task Force have connections to George Soros’-funded organizationsii and other radical groups like the Democratic Socialists of America.iii

 

 Paul routinely refers to America as an “empire” and insists we are “occupying” over one hundred countries. Conjuring images of mercenaries, Paul’s obvious insinuation is that our soldiers are “imperial occupiers.” But as Bret Stephens of the Wall Street Journal has noted:

 

“The bulk of U.S. forces deployed overseas … are stationed in just seven countries: Afghanistan, Iraq, Japan, South Korea, Germany, the U.K. and Italy, all of which are home to at least 9,000 troops. Aside from Afghanistan and Iraq (which may soon drop off that list) all of these are World War II and Cold War legacies. Another five countries—Spain, Turkey, Belgium (the headquarters of NATO), Bahrain and Djibouti—have between 1,000 and 1,500 troops. The next largest deployments are Portugal (703), Qatar (555) Honduras (403) and Greece (338).”iv

 

Are we “occupying” our allies who invited and welcome our military presence? To get 100+ “occupied” countries is difficult unless you include the small Marine detachments protecting U.S. embassies.

 

 In May 2010, Paul was also one of just five House Republicans to vote to repeal the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, thereby allowing open homosexuality in the military.v

 

Ron Paul: Hostile To Israel

 

 Examples of Paul’s hostility toward Israel are almost too numerous to list. But in 2009, Ron Paul was the only Republican and one of just five members of the House — along with Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) and Maxine Waters (D-CA) — to oppose House Resolution 34, condemning Hamas as a terrorist organization and expressing America’s support for Israel’s right to defend itself from repeated rocket attacks from Gaza.vi As an example of Paul’s warped mindset, he took to the House floor to oppose House Resolution 34 and stated that Hamas was “encouraged and started by Israel,” a gross misinterpretation of historical events.vii Hamas was started by the Muslim Brotherhood and its charter calls for the destruction of Israel.viii

 

Ron Paul: Hostile To Ronald Reagan

 

 In 1987, as he was preparing his third party presidential bid, Paul formally resigned from the Republican Party and blamed, of all people, Ronald Reagan for his leaving. Here is an excerpt of Paul’s letter:

 

“I want to totally disassociate myself from the policies that have given us unprecedented deficits, massive monetary inflation, indiscriminate military spending, an

irrational and unconstitutional foreign policy, zooming foreign aid, the exaltation of international banking, and the attack on our personal liberties and privacy. …There is no credibility left for the Republican Party as a force to reduce the size of government. That is the message of the Reagan years. …I therefore resign my membership in the Republican Party and enclose my membership card.”ix

 

Ronald Reagan is widely credited for staring down the Soviet Union, rebuilding our military and our economy after the disastrous Carter years. He left office with a 63% approval rating. Once again, Ron Paul was in the minority. What exactly was Paul referring to when he referred to Reagan’s “irrational and unconstitutional foreign policy”? In condemning Ronald Reagan’s “indiscriminate military spending,” we can see now that his teaming up with radical leftist and conservative-hater Barney Frank to slash the Defense budget is nothing new. Paul has been trying to slash defense spending for years!

 

 In 1988, during his campaign for the White House as the nominee of the Libertarian Party, Paul said this about Ronald Reagan: “I think we can further thank Ronald Reagan of course, for doing a good job. He certainly did a good job pointing out in 1980 the fallacies of the Democratic liberal agenda. He certainly did a good job on following up, showing the disaster of the conservative agenda as well.”x

 

 

Ron Paul: Hostile To Values Issues

 

 While Ron Paul says he is pro-life and presents himself as a pro-family conservative, he has frequently voted against pro-life, pro-family legislation. Consider the following examples:

 

o 1999 — voted against the Child Custody Protect Act, which would make it illegal to take a minor girl across state lines to get an abortion in violation of her home state’s parental notification laws.xi

 

o 1999 — voted against the Unborn Victims of Violence Act, which would make it a separate crime to injure or kill an unborn child in any assault against a pregnant woman.xii

 

o 1999 — voted against the Pain Relief Promotion Act (anti-euthanasia legislation)xiii

 

o 1999 — voted against the Religious Liberty Protection Actxiv

 

o 1999 — voted against school choice legislationxv

 

o 2001 — again voted against the Unborn Victims of Violence Actxvi

 

o 2001 — voted against the Human Cloning Prohibition Actxvii

 

o 2001 — voted against school choice legislationxviii

 

o 2002 — again voted against the Child Custody Protection Actxix

 

o 2003 — again voted against the Human Cloning Prohibition Actxx

 

o 2003 — voted against school choice legislation — for the third timexxi

 

o 2004 — voted against the Unborn Victims of Violence Act — for the third timexxii

 

o 2004 — voted against the Federal Marriage Amendmentxxiii

 

o 2005 — voted against the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act (reaffirming state parental notification laws)xxiv

 

o 2006 — again voted against the Federal Marriage Amendmentxxv

 

 Ron Paul left the Republican Party in 1988 to run for president as the candidate of the pro-choice Libertarian Party. At that time, the Libertarian Party platform supported “the right of women to make a personal choice regarding the termination of pregnancy.”xxvi

MISCELLANEOUS

 

 Ron Paul has suggested that the 9/11 investigation was a cover-up and called for a new investigation headed by left-wing radical Dennis Kucinich.xxvii

 

 Ron Paul opposed the killing of Osama bin Laden and said that if he had been president he would not have ordered the SEAL raid into Pakistan.xxviii This position, like many others, puts Paul in a very small minority. According to a Gallup poll, 93% of Americans supported the killing of bin Laden, while just 5% opposed it.xxix

 

 In 2008, when virtually all conservatives were working to prevent the election of Barack Obama, Ron Paul refused to endorse the Republican nominee, Sen. John McCain, and instead told his supporters to vote for one of four third party candidates.xxx One of them was Green Party nominee Cynthia McKinney — an anti-Semitic, anti-Israel socialist who accused George W. Bush of allowing the 9/11 attacks to happen.xxxi
