Who Leads the Attack On Ron Paul?

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 Libyawrought 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.”)
Of course, despite a “Democratic” president sitting in the White House, America’s foreign and domestic policy has been drawn up and carried out by corporate-fascists who hold sway over both sides of America’s political aisle. “Obama’s” military adventure in Libya, for instance, wasnot only supported by what Americans might call “Neo-Conservatives,” but the war itself was drawn up by them in the first place. This indicates an overarching agenda that transcends presidencies and the perceived political ideologies they supposedly adhere to. The necessity then, to keep puppets like Bush or Obama in place is realized, as any truly independent, principled president would expose and disrupt this long running charade.
From April, 2011?s “The Globalists Coming Full Circle:”
“Ten days after 9/11, General Wesley Clark visited the Pentagon where an officer from the Joint Staff warned him of an impending attack on Iraq. After the Afghan invasion, this officer shared with Clark a document handed down from the Office of the Secretary of Defense indicating plans to attack and destroy the governments of 7 countries; Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Iran, Lebanon and Libya. General Wesley Clark would go on to share this story in a 2007 speech given to the Commonwealth Club of California where he repeated this list.
Of course, the campaigns have already begun against each of the nations Clark listed. Iraq was invaded, decimated, and has been occupied by US troops since 2003. In 2006, Israel attempted to invade and dismantle Hezbollah in Lebanon but the conflict ended in a stalemate and an eventual Israeli withdrawal. Somalia was attacked by a proxy Ethiopian invasion force with US air support starting in 2007, but it too eventually ended in failure. A silent war has already begun within Iran, including covert military operations, the arming of terrorists, assassinations, and 2 failed US backed color revolutions. Sudan has been recently carved into two states and Syria is now being intentionally destabilized by US trained and funded activists.
And now, of course in Libya’s case, aerial bombardment by US, UK, and French warplanes has begun, while the CIA and MI6 are on the ground attempting to collapse the Qaddafi regime.
Wesley Clark would backtrack in his 2007 talk in California and recall a conversation he had in 1991 with then Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Paul Wolfowitz regarding Desert Storm. Clark was told that America’s intervention in Iraq proved that the US could use its military force and the Soviets wouldn’t stop them. Wolfowitz said the US had 5-10 years to clean up the old Soviet “client regimes” before the next super power rose up and challenged western hegemony. Clark claimed that this, along with the aftermath of 9/11 constituted a policy coup where Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, and the other members of the of Project for a New American Century had hijacked US foreign policy to destabilize and turn the nations of the Middle East upside down – much the way they are now. The “Neo-Conservative” element of this current round of destabilization goes deeper than the promotion of war, as the “Neo-Cons” have uncharacteristically dedicated themselves to “human rights” and “democracy” side-by-side with the likes of George Soros and Zbigniew Brzezinski.
