Ron Paul’s Texas Straight Talk: House Chooses New Cold War With Russia

Ron Paul seems to think that the November elections gave the Republicans a license to start declaring wars. Do you agree?

Transcript

Last week the US House voted overwhelmingly in favor of an anti-Russia resolution so full of war propaganda that it rivals the rhetoric from the chilliest era of the Cold War. Ironically, much of the bill condemns Russia for doing exactly what the US government has been doing for years in Syria and Ukraine!

For example, one of the reasons to condemn Russia in the resolution is the claim that Russia is imposing economic sanctions on Ukraine. But how many rounds of sanctions has the US government imposed on Russia for much of the past year? I guess sanctions are only bad when used by countries Washington doesn’t like.

The resolution condemns Russia for selling weapons to the Assad government in Syria. But the US has been providing weapons to the rebels in Syria for several years, with many going to terrorist groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS that the US is currently bombing!

The resolution condemns what it claims is a Russian invasion of Ukraine (for which it offers no proof) and Russian violation of Ukrainian sovereignty. But it was the US, by backing a coup against the democratically elected Yanukovich government in February, that first violated that country’s sovereignty. And as far as a military presence in Ukraine, it is the US that has openly sent in special forces and other military advisors to assist the government there. How many times have top US military and CIA officials visited Kiev to offer advice and probably a lot more?

The resolution condemns Russia for what it claims are attempts to “illicitly acquire information” about the US government. But we learned from the Snowden revelations that the NSA is spying on most of the rest of the world, including our allies! How can the US claim the moral authority to condemn such actions in others?

The resolution attacks Russian state-funded media, claiming that they “distort public opinion.” At the same time the bill demands that the thousands of US state-funded media outlets step up their programming to that part of the world! It also seeks “appropriate responses” to Russian media influence in the rest of the world. That should be understood to mean that US diplomats would exert pressure on foreign countries to shut down television networks like RT.

The resolution condemns what it claims is Russia’s provision of weapons to the Russian-speaking eastern part of Ukraine, which seeks closer ties with Russia, while demanding that the US government start providing weapons to its proxies on the other side.

As I have said, this is one of the worst pieces of legislation I can remember. And trust me, I have seen some pretty bad bills. It is nothing but war propaganda and it will likely lead to all sorts of unintended consequences.

Only ten Members – five from each party – opposed this reckless resolution. Probably most of those who voted in favor did not bother to read the bill. Others who read it and still voted in favor may have calculated that the bill would not come up in the Senate. So they could vote yes and please the hawks in their districts – and more importantly remain in good graces of the hawks who run foreign policy in Washington – without having to worry about the consequences if the bill became law.

Whatever the case, we must keep an eye on those Members of Congress who vote to take us closer to war with Russia. We should thank those ten Members who were able to resist the war propaganda. The hawks in Washington believe that last month’s election gave them free rein to start more wars. Now more than ever they must be challenged!

Senate Passes ‘No Social Security for Nazis’ Bill

Signs of change? Maybe. We’ll know for sure when people involved in Operation Paperclip appear on the list… -LW

The U.S. Senate approved a bill that would end Social Security payments to former Nazis.

The No Social Security for Nazis Act passed Dec. 4 by voice vote. Having passed the U.S. House of Representatives unanimously earlier in the week, the bill now goes to President Obama for his signature.

It closes a loophole that had allowed ex-Nazis who lied about their past when immigrating to the United States — and had been identified and deported by the Justice Department — to continue receiving Social Security and other benefits.

It seems likely Obama will sign the bill, as the White House has encouraged bids to close the loophole.

News of the continued benefits came in October, when The Associated Press published an expose.

There are at least four living beneficiaries, including Jakob Denzinger, a former guard at Auschwitz. Denzinger, 90, lives in Croatia, where he receives approximately $1,500 a month in Social Security payments.

Internet News Sites Being Blocked (or DNS Issues?)

Based on my experience, this problem has more to do with DNS servers than anything. With some DNS servers, I found that I was repeatedly flushing the cache, because Chrome would report the address was being spoofed or had an invalid security certificate. This is not new, but there seems to be more of it, lately, so I set up with OpenDNS, once again, and haven’t had any problems.

 

Coca-Cola’s Next Big Drink Is… Milk?

I just saw this on The Colbert Report, and I was stunned. Would you buy milk from Coca-Cola?

A tall glass of nutritious, cold milk may be one of the last things consumers associate with the Coca-Cola Company (NYSE: KO) , but by early next year, one of the company’s newest brands, “Fairlife Milk,” will hit grocery store shelves nationwide. The premium drink offers 50% more protein and calcium than regular milk and contains half the sugars, in addition to being lactose-free.

Fairlife Milk was launched by Fair Oaks Farms, LLC, a company jointly owned by Coke and its dairy partner, Select Milk Producers. Select Milk Producers is a co-operative owned by 97 farms that produces over 6.3 billion gallons of milk annually. “FairLife” is actually the second brand to be launched by Fair Oaks Farms; the first, “Core Power,” a high-protein sports recovery drink, has benefited from Coke’s marketing and distribution might.

At the center of Fairlife Milk’s appeal is its proprietary cold filtration process, in which milk is filtered at the molecular level into its primary constituent parts: water, vitamins/minerals, lactose, protein, and fat. These basic ingredients can then be recombined into any proportion desired. The following video from the company’s website explains the process in a clear, visual manner:

And just think, it it doesn’t sell, they can always introduce Milk Classic.

Fulford: President Obama May Have Been Poisoned

benjamin_fulford_ottowa_senators_shirt_8The satanic cabal is suffering a series of catastrophic defeats. Like a snowball gradually turning larger, the removal of a few cabalists is now turning into an avalanche of losses for the cabal. The removal of Pope Maledict and the abdication of a several European royals is now being followed with the removal of key cabal power brokers in the United States. The low IQ, and easy to manipulate, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel has been replaced with Ashton Carter, a polymath with a PHD in theoretical physics. Under cabal rule, meritocrats like Carter ran into a glass ceiling. The fact that such a man is now in the top post is a good sign but, Carter will have to show with his actions that he is on the right side. The early omens are good. The US military industrial complex is out to oust mass murdering psychopath Benyamin Netanyahu had have already managed to overthrow his government. The evidence presented in a British court that Netanyahu was one of the key planners of the 311 tsunami and nuclear mass murder attack was a key reason for his loss of support inside the military industrial complex as well as in the Israeli government, Mossad sources say.

As soon as the US move to oust Netanyahu was reported in Israeli newspapers, US President Barack Obama was sent to a top military hospital for “acid reflux.” MI5 sources say it was likely he was poisoned by people close to Netanyahu. What the people close to Netanyahu fail to realize is that even if they had killed Obama it would have made no difference because he is just a spokesperson for the military industrial complex. The military industrial complex has a lot more men with guns than the cabal could ever dream of defeating even with their usual tool of targeted assassinations.

The other big sign that it is not business as usual in Washington is the fact the US Congress passed legislation that amounted to a declaration of war against Russia

but this was ignored by both the military and the media. It means the cabal bribed fools in Congress have been removed from any real power.

The next thing the Joint Chiefs of Staff must do is to start rounding up and putting in jail the members of murderous Bush clan, starting with George Bush Sr.

In China as well, there was a very big move last week with the arrest of former top Security Chief Zhou Yongkang.
