But first, in order to understand Ron Paul we have to take a good hard look at his primary supporters. We begin with Alex Jones.
He's a popular figure this Alex Jones. Quarter million subs on his youtube channel alone. And how about that prison planet website? Lots of advertisers over there. But there's one thing you won't see or hear at any of Jones' web material. You won't see anything positive said or written about the United States of America.
The fact is on all of the Alex Jones web properties there is an enormous amount of support for America's enemies and none for America herself. Iran plays heavily in the headlines and always in a positive light. Iran has the right to peaceful pursuit of nuclear power, according to Jones' material. And then there's Israel. Many of the stories featured, and often written by the Jones staff, accuse Israel of atrocities around the world including the recent bombings around the world which have been solidly linked to Iran.
Jones mocks the evidence in support of the existential threat from Iran against Israel. In a recent post Jones linked to a site which lists 10 reasons to attack Iran. All of these are sarcastic attacks against the US and her attempts to suppress the world-wide Islamic attempt to establish a caliphate; an Islam-dominated world government of sharia law. Where is all of this coming from? Consider this: Iran is also a friend to the Russians.
Russia has supplied Iran with the technology and material to actually establish a nuclear program. The former communist nation has profited tremendously from the exploits of the Persians. And now Iran is close to fulfilling her goal: destroying Israel.
Alex Jones seems bent on ignoring the stated goals of Iran and it's ruling class to get rid of Israel. He consistently implies that this threat is conjured; not real. Yet the President of Iran, along with the spiritual dictators, have boldly and openly declared that Israel is in the way of the Islamic tenets. In fact very recently a website with close ties to Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei outlined why it would be acceptable to kill all Jews and annihilate Israel.
Conservative site Alef has published a doctrine detailing why the destruction of the nation and the slaughter of all its people would be legally and morally justified.
The doctrine, first reported by WND.com, warned that the chance to remove the 'corrupting material' of Israel must not be lost - and that it would only take nine minutes to wipe it out.
And it said it was a 'jurisprudential justification' for Iran's Islamic government to then take the helm.
The article, written by Khamenei's strategy specialist Alireza Forghani, is now being run on most state-owned conservative sites, indicating it has the regime's support. The crux of dossier said Iran would be justified in launching a pre-emptive strike against Israel because of the threat the Jewish state's leaders are posing against its own nuclear facilities.
Alex Jones himself has featured prominently on Russian television. RT, previously known as Russia Today, is a government-funded global multilingual television news network based in the Russian Federation. It was founded in 2005 as Russia Today by the government-owned RIA Novosti.
If McCarthyism was still an active American doctrine Alex Jones would be locked up. Yet as we examine this evidence we have to wonder: what about Ron Paul - the one Alex Jones is so fervently supporting? Is he in any way related to this? In fact he is in total lock-step with Jones on every issue. Perhaps even more deeply.
Ron Paul actually raised one million dollars from the Russian government-funded group at RT (Russian Television). A commentator on the Russian government-funded television news network RT boasted of a $1 million “money bomb” on behalf of U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination.
The donation raised legal questions, because while the commentator happens to be an American, allowing him to donate to Paul’s presidential campaign, foreign entities such as RT are prohibited. (see here)
This poses a loyalty problem for Paul who seems to hold the Russian view on issues. In fact, in a recent GOP debate, Ron Paul seemed to be making the case for Russian foreign policy.
So, the evidence seems to be clear on this issue. Paul has taken $1 million from the Russians - the primary suppliers of nuclear technology to Iran. His biggest supporter is a prominent figure on Russian government television. And he poses as the poster-boy for Americana. How entirely ironic and tragic at the same time.
America is not interested in retracting her exceptional-ism. Americans, in spite of a few die-hard libertarians, know that there exists an existential threat from the evils that exist in the world. Ron Paul and Alex Jones have open friendships with the government of Russia which votes against the US on matters of security. The time has come to lift the veil off of Paul. What's really going on with this guy? Why is he taking campaign money from the Russian Government. Why is Alex Jones so angry toward America? And why is this not mentioned in the main stream media? Following is a video interview by Russia Television where the Russian government is interviewing Alex Jones and he is actually attacking a US - based company... on Russian Government television. What is he thinking?
Wait... what? He's actually comparing himself to black and Jewish tribulation? Alex Jones has sold out his own country. He's upset that Youtube won't give him a partnership which would be very lucrative for him financially. And he's whining about it like a child throwing a temper tantrum on Russian television.
Ron Paul, through donations from Russian entities, has shown a tie to foreign, and some might argue hostile, governments and Alex Jones is entirely too cozy with Russian interests. There is some very distasteful activity going on here; activity which seeks to undermine the unique position America has in the world. Paul and Jones are openly backing Russian interests, both politically and in the media and it's time to call them out on it.
