The Ron Paul Challenge: 10 reasons why the Alternative Media is failing this test
We can consider ourselves lucky Ron Paul is not likely to win the elections. His economics are a disaster and the Alternative Media’s credibility would suffer a horrible blow from bringing him to power. Just think of the field day the Main Stream Media would have explaining they warned us of Paul when millions take to the street to resist his destruction of the economy with his 1 trillion austerity drive.
How could our best and brightest be suckered in to supporting a Freemason wanting a Gold Standard with an austerity program the IMF would tout as an example?
In many respects it’s heartwarming, the momentum that he creates. It does show how deeply felt the desire for ‘change’ really is. But on the other hand it’s sobering to realize how easy it still is to fool people with a promise of change. Even if it’s just four short years ago that millions were led to continuing disaster with that other change agent. How is it possible that after all these years of exposing Illuminati change agents it is still so hard for people to understand that ‘change’ can be a real threat and that it is not ‘change’ in general we want, but a very specific kind of change?
How is it possible that after all those years of digging in real history, exposing the Money Power and the Illuminati’s control of the money supply that we still can be sold a candidate like Paul?
How is it possible that when I write Ken Adachi about Ron Paul’s Austrian Economics and how he will maintain the Illuminati’s control of the money supply with a new Gold Standard, I get this reply:
“You are mixing apples and oranges. I have no quarrel with Paul if he favors a gold backed US currency. That’s what we used to have until Roosevelt ended the fixing of gold at $35 per ounce and took us off the gold standard……
…….. We have a congress filled with NWO traitors who are working day and night to bring about the destruction of this once great land. The only one addressing the real issues of the shredding of the US constitution and the insane fiscal and war policies that are destroying America is Ron Paul.”
Please understand I greatly respect Ken Adachi. I’ve been following his work for almost ten years. He was already exposing Chemtrailing when I was still explaining to people how wonderful our free market democracy really is.
But how can a man of his brilliance NOT understand that the NWO rules through their control of our money supply while using this control to destroy us with interest and the boom/bust cycle?
The fact is that of all the major outlets only Jeff Rense consistently provided links to Ron Paul’s real opposition within the Alternative Media. Most notably through the writings of Henry Makow and Dick Eastman.
And this shows that the Alternative Media is prone to the same myopia the MSM suffers from when it comes to ‘their own’.
All this is incredibly annoying. Ron Paul singlehandedly disabled the entire blogosphere as a source of opposition. He’s hijacked the voice of reason and we need to clean up our act.
So here’s a top ten of what went wrong.
1. Not understanding economics, not knowing of Interest Free Economics
How can we support a candidate offering a Gold Standard? What’s wrong with us? What does it matter whether the Government pays 700 billion in debt service for paper based credit or for gold based credit?
While it can print interest free money itself?
The choice is not to pay interest for Gold or for Paper.
The choice is to pay interest or NOT pay interest.
How can all the pundits miss that we had a Gold Standard up to the thirties (and via Bretton Woods actually up to 1971)? How can we forget the Rothschilds got rich from lending Gold to Sovereigns in the 18th, 19th AND 20th century?
How can all the commentators denounce the deflationary policies of the IMF and Brussels in Europe and next hail a man calling for a 1 Trillion austerity drive as the new Messiah?
We are falling for just another dialectic: Mainstream Economics vs Austrian Economics, or Inflation vs. Deflation.
It’s worrying that these dialectics still fool us so easily. Whereas they can be easily recognized: they always offer a choice between a rock and a hard place. Evil and lesser evil. When facing such a choice we should realize we’re being played.
I was lucky, I read Lietaer first and only then Rothbard. But it’s not too late: read up on Ellen Brown, Margrit Kennedy, Eisenstein, Greco, Dick Eastman, C.H. Douglas. These people are for real, because they show the way to end interest slavery. And the Money Power cannot be defeated without defeating Usury.
How are we going to end Usurious Usurpation with a Gold Standard?
2. The childish affection for ‘Capitalism’
That’s what made this country great, right? REAL Capitalism, not the socialized semi communist ‘capitalism’ we have now. Or so we say.
Why do we call it Capitalism? Because in this system Capital rules over Labor. That’s why.
Are the 99% of the Capitalist class? I don’t think so.
Why don’t we understand Capitalism is a Monopoly? Just like Communism? That Capitalism vs. Communism is just another dialectic?
Capital wants returns on its investment and it’s just another example of humanity’s severe case of Stockholm Syndrome that we are so enthralled by it.
Capital invented and financed Communism, because in Communism they can exploit their coveted Monopoly unhindered. Communism is Capitalism showing its true face.
Capitalism didn’t bring us prosperity. It brought us the despicable horrors of the Industrial Revolution, with forced urbanization and the hellish 80 hour work weeks in sweatshops for our forefathers.
What brought us prosperity was uncompromising resistance against these horrible conditions.
Capitalism has nothing to do with free markets. If there is one thing a capitalist despises, it’s a free market. He hates competition. That’s why he buys politicians to make laws excluding competition. That’s why all major industries are controlled by cartels of Transnationals.
Capitalism is a system where the few control Capital as a factor of production. Like it was said back in 1862:
“I and my European friends are in favor of for slavery is but the owning of labor and carries with it the care of the laborers, while the European plan, led on by England, is that capital shall control labor by controlling wages… It will not do to allow the greenback, as it is called, to circulate as money any length of time, as we can not control that. But we can control the bonds and through them the bank issues.”
That is Capitalism’s real face. Not some nice little fuzzy cozy all American kind of thing.
3. Lack of Historical Awareness
Yes, historical awareness in the Alternative Media is much superior to that of the MSM. But the first two points show it’s far from sufficient. History shows that humanity has been at war with the Money Power for ever. When reading the history of the Roman Republic, the recurring theme is the ongoing struggle for emancipation by the plebs. Continuously looking for ways to limit the power of the patricians and ending their own disenfranchisement from the political process.
The Plebs lost. The Empire was a consolidation of Patrician power. It is not for nothing that when Caesar ended the republic he also ended fiat money. Up to then, the Romans payed with copper coins, but from then on scarce Gold chained them until they were liberated by the Huns. They were ‘compensated’ with free grains and ever more bloodthirsty ‘games’ in the Colosseum. All payed for by the Empire’s plundering of the provinces, of course.
And what to think of Jesus Christ: we all know he physically attacked the Money Changers.
We must come to terms with these lessons.
4. Settling for Ron Paul’s 9/11 story
Of course Ron Paul knows Israel and the Bush clan did 9/11. But he supposedly avoids this because it would be ‘unacceptable’ to the Media and the wider public.
What utter nonsense!
Most Americans these days understand the truth or at any rate understand the official narrative is a lie. We don’t need a candidate spouting the Noam Chomsky nonsense that ‘Arabs attack us because we are so mean against them’.
Arabs didn’t attack the US!
Everybody saying they did is lying and setting us up for war with them.
Ron Paul is a coward for not speaking out about 9/11. We are cowards for not daring to wait for a candidate who WILL expose what really transpired that day.
How can a peace candidate be for real by coming to power with a campaign based on such a lie?
We need a Real Candidate that will blow the lies out of the water and thus destroy everybody who perpetrated this lie. We don’t need a candidate who is afraid of the truth or the Media spin doctors.
We need a man with the balls, the brains and rhetoric to completely wipe away these nasty lackeys of power.
5. Not noticing the risk of Ron Paul as a War Candidate
The Money Power, through its agents in the CIA, MI6 and the Mossad is well capable of creating ‘facts on the ground’ that would ‘force’ Ron Paul into war.
A ‘Gulf of Hormuz’ incident is easily created. It is hot at the moment too.
What is Ron Paul going to say then?
How is he going to explain to the American People that he is not going to strike in revenge, because he believes it’s a set up? After explaining to them Arabs attacked us 10 years ago?
The fact is, Americans would rally behind Ron Paul if he is ‘forced’ to go to war. And this is a real danger. We saw what happened with our previous ‘Peace Candidate’.
6. He’s a special interest candidate
So we are happy to point out our current ‘leaders’ have stocks in the Oil, Pharma and Banking industries whose policies they implement for them in Congress.
And what kind of portfolio does Paul, owning 5 million in assets, have?
Gold, Gold, Gold.
Seems to me he stands to gain a great deal when he is allowed to force a new Gold Standard upon us.
It would amount to an unprecedented wealth transfer from those holding paper to those holding Gold.
Now tell me: is it the 99% that have Gold, or is it the 1%?
8. The idea that he may not be ideal, but at any rate not worse than the others.
This only seems an attractive idea. The problem with it is, that by supporting the lesser evil we are basically saying we accept this system.
We don’t. Or at any rate we shouldn’t.
We don’t accept this system and we will only work with it if it brings a President that will reform it beyond recognition.
By going along with the lesser evil we are maintaining the illusion of choice.
We are empowering people to keep voting, and thus propping up this utterly discredited ‘system’ of ours.
We are hindering the advent of a real candidate.
9. He’s a Republican!
True, party membership does not mean towing the party line and Paul certainly voted his own way.
But he did serve the party loyally for decades. The party that sprung the Bush Dynasty on us and all those maniacs in Congress and the Senate.
Evidently Paul does not mind being associated with them.
And of course we would make the same argument had he been a Democrat. Isn’t that what it’s all about? Yet another Dialectic: Democrat vs. Republican, Left vs. Right.
We are way beyond that so why are we so happy with a candidate who clearly is not?
We need an independent candidate.
10. Our own lack of a clear program
This is what haunts the Occupy movement too. We need to develop a clear cut set of goals.
Occupy tried to solve this in the same way the anarchists tried it during the Spanish Civil War: discuss everything endlessly and try to find common ground everybody can agree with.
Forget about that. It’s not going to happen. It’s never going to work. We can never agree on everything. These discussions are incredibly wearying and they are usually dominated by ego and won by those most determined, not those most intelligent. It usually ends up with the lowest common denominator.
What we should do is have everybody say what they want. Be on the lookout for people doing what they are saying. Decide for yourself whether they are for real or not. And when they are real, support them.
Don’t weary them down with discussions about how you see things yourself, although we should never be afraid to speak our mind. Just understand that when somebody is taking the initiative and you support him, he’s in charge.
Or start your own initiative, of course.
If we just support people and groups we believe are for real, we would automatically gravitate towards centers of progress.
And it’s not difficult to create a basic program. It looks something like this:
1. Interest Free Economics.
Based on an interest free money supply.
Nationalizing or preferably closing the Federal Reserve Bank. The immediate end of bailouts. Ending interest payments. Comprehensive investigation of ALL the culprits, including the absolute top of banking, politics, media and academics. Disowning all profits from collusion, conspiracies and fraud. Reclaiming all interest payments over fraudulent fractional reserve banking based credit from the plutocracy. Closing of all banks convicted of serious fraud. Trial by Jury.
Providing interest free credit (or debt free money) to both the Government and individuals.
2. Truth about 9/11
Actively investigating the real culprits, including those in Israel.
Prosecution of all war criminals, including Bush and Blair. But also exposure of what happened with all the false flags in history, including Pearl Harbor, the Gulf of Tonkin, The Main in Havana, Fukushima and Deep Horizon.
3. Ending the bribing of politicians
By making it a felony.
4. Ending the ‘rights’ of Corporations to ‘free speech’ and being a ‘person’ with associated rights.
Including making them fully liable for damages they do.
5. The End of Empire
Decimating the budget for aggressive war (‘defense’). The US spends a trillion per year on its army. All this money ends up in the coffers of the Plutocracy, while the weapons are maiming and killing millions.
The incredible fact is, that the US spends more on ‘defense’ than all other nations combined.
The army should exist only to defend the American People. A decent navy and air force, a few thousand nukes and a well armed militia is more than sufficient for this. A 100 billion defense budget would do just fine.
Whether he is aware of it himself or not, Ron Paul is a candidate absolutely typical of the Money Power. An agenda for ‘change’, because ‘change’ has been their battle cry for centuries. It is an absolute wake up call for us all that they can still be so effective with this strategy.
Apparently we still have not learned that ‘change’ comes in two varieties. The kind we like and the kind they like.
It is high time we get a better view of what we want, so that we can evaluate candidates according to our own standards, instead of being mind controlled with ‘Austrian Economics’ or ‘Capitalism’.
We are lucky the Diebold computers seem to favor Romney.
We’d had been hard pressed to explain how wonderful a ‘Free Press’ is, had we been responsible for getting Paul the White House.
