The Great Ron Paul

Posted by M. C. on June 20, 2022

Ron is the anti-politician. He tells unfashionable truths, educates rather than flatters the public, and stands up for principle even when the whole world is arrayed against him.

By Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.

Many people wish they could have met a great figure in history. What would it be like to talk to Newton, to Tesla, to Shakespeare? Those of us lucky enough to know Dr. Ron Paul don’t have to speculate. We know one of the truly great figures in American history, the best Congressman we have ever had. I have known him for decades, and I’d like to tell you something about him as a person and about his achievements.

I had the rare honor of serving as Ron Paul’s congressional chief of staff, and observed him in many proud moments in those days, and in his presidential campaigns. People today sometimes compare Ron Paul with Bernie Sanders. The comparison of Bernie to Ron goes like this: both launched insurgent, anti-establishment presidential campaigns while in their 70s, shook up their respective party establishments, and attracted large youth followings. But Bernie is no Ron.

Just on the surface: Bernie is a grump and difficult to work with; Ron is a kindhearted gentleman who always showed his appreciation for the people in his office.

More importantly, Ron urged his followers to read and learn. Countless high school and college students began reading dense and difficult treatises in economics and political philosophy because Ron encouraged them to. Ron’s followers, meanwhile, were curious enough to dig beneath the surface. Is the state really a benign institution that can costlessly provide us whatever we might demand? Or might there be moral, economic, and political factors standing in the way of these utopian dreams?

It’s not hard to cultivate a raving band of people demanding other people’s things, as Bernie Sanders does. Such appeals arouse the basest aspects of our nature, and will always attract a crowd. It’s very hard, on the other hand, to build up an army of young people intellectually curious enough to read serious books and consider ideas that go beyond the conventional wisdom they learned in school about government and market. It’s hard to build up a movement of people whose moral sense is developed enough to recognize that barking demands and enforcing them with the state’s gun is the behavior of a thug, not a civilized person. And it’s hard to persuade people of the counter-intuitive idea that society runs better and individuals are more prosperous when no one is “in charge” at all.

Yet Ron accomplished all these thing

Watch “Truth is Terrorism! – New Update from US Government” on YouTube

Posted by M. C. on March 7, 2022

Truth is terrorism! New update from US government and the department of homeland security. Spreaders of online misinformation are now considered domestic terrorists. You better start subscribing to the narrative before you go to jail!

A variation on “truth is treason” as our good friend Ron Paul says.

Letter to Governor Ron DeSantis

Posted by M. C. on February 25, 2022

When doctors have to take hospitals to court to let them administer a Nobel Prize–winning medication with a forty-year safety record, something is fiendishly flawed.

Veto HB 7021 to Protect Floridians from Incentivized Medical Malpractice & Hospicide

Margaret Anna Alice

Margaret Anna examines media narratives, propaganda, mass control, politics, psychology, history, philosophy, language, film, art, music, literature, and culture ​in her aim to unmask totalitarianism and awaken the sleeping before tyranny triumphs.

Margaret Anna Alice
Letter to Governor Ron DeSantis; Drowning Person Holding Umbrella over Head in Sea

“‘Emergencies’ have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have been eroded—and once they are suspended it is not difficult for anyone who has assumed such emergency powers to see to it that the emergency will persist.”

—F. A. Hayek, Law, Legislation, and Liberty

Dear Governor DeSantis,

I’m not a big fan of politicians. I probably only need one hand to count the ones who appear to possess a whit of integrity, rationality, and moral courage—off the top of my head, Tulsi Gabbard, Ron Johnson, Ron1 Paul, Brian Peckford, and you.

Gideon van Meijeren’s pretty kickass, too:

Gideon van Meijeren Confronts Globalist Dutch PM Rutte for His World Economic Forum Connections

But back to you, Governor. Throughout the manufactured COVID crisis, you have displayed sanity, respected individual liberties, followed the actual science, and resisted the worldwide mudslide into tyranny.

You did lock down (a disappointing concession to authoritarianism, but, to your credit, one you later expressed regret over and vowed not to repeat), but only for a month. Unlike most of your peers, you kept your word and lifted the stay-at-home order after thirty days.

You stated at a November 2020 press conference that there would be “no lockdowns, no fines, no school closures. No one’s losing their job because of a government dictate. Nobody’s losing their livelihood or their business.”

You signed legislation to protect Floridians from coercive mandates. You support the rights of workers to decide whether to wear masks.

You set up monoclonal antibody treatment sites around the state—until the FDA suddenly revised the emergency use authorizations to prohibit providers from administering these highly effective treatments in the United States.

You support proposed legislation to protect the rights of loved ones to visit patients in hospitals and long-term care facilities, noting, “COVID cannot be used as an excuse to deny patients basic rights.”

You advocated for the rights of physicians to prescribe drugs they believe will work without fear of penalties such as loss of license, preserving the sacred doctor-patient relationship from interference by politics.

You even honored Firecracker Fiona Lashells, a second-grader I proudly featured as an example of brave noncompliance with unhealthy mask mandates.

Fauci Lied and Thousands Died… RPI Year-End Update

Posted by M. C. on December 30, 2021

https://mailchi.mp/ronpaulinstitute/yearend?e=ff526b933a

Everybody is talking about this Ron Paul Liberty Report!
Liberty Report In the News: Fighting for You! Dear Friends:

As 2021 winds down to its last couple of days, I am writing to toot our horn a bit. You see, the Ron Paul Liberty Report has spent this year – and the previous year – in the trenches fighting what can only be described as the greatest assault on Americans’ civil liberties since slavery.

All of a sudden we saw that our house of liberty was built on sand – that the elites made billions with their boots on our necks while the rest of us suffered. Never again!

You have probably received many solicitations for end-of-year support from organizations that put their finger to the wind to see when it’s safe to come out in favor of liberty and freedom. As you know, Ron Paul has never played that game. Please make your year-end, tax-deductible donation
to the Ron Paul Institute!
From the very first moment they started ramping up an authoritarian response to a virus, Ron Paul was calling their bluff. He published “The Coronavirus Hoax” on the Ron Paul Institute website in March, 2020, just as President Trump was following his malevolent covid advisors toward lockdowns and tyranny.

It certainly was not the “cautious” thing to say – and we received some nasty notes from a few supporters – but Ron Paul always speaks the truth regardless of whether it is popular at the time.

In this prescient March 2020 article he wrote: Governments love crises because when the people are fearful they are more willing to give up freedoms for promises that the government will take care of them. Did he call this whole thing or what? Governments use “crises” to frighten the people into submitting their liberties to the “authorities” in exchange for protections that governments never deliver. And how well did the government protect us from illness and death from this coronavirus? About as well as it protected us against a terror attack on 9/11. Help RPI Continue to Grow! Senator Rand Paul said it best as a guest on a recent episode of the Ron Paul Institute’s Ron Paul Liberty Report: I would venture to say that thousands of people die in our country every month now because [Fauci] has deemphasized the idea that there are therapeutics. The mainstream media is doing a great job amplifying Sen. Paul’s Liberty Report statements – of course with the intention of ridiculing the Senator.

But we’re past that. Their game is up.

We’ve travelled down this road together these past two years. Dr. Paul and I scouring the media every morning to try and bring the latest bit of truth to our growing viewership. As the mainstream media loses viewers by the millions, the Ron Paul Liberty Report GAINS viewers by the millions!

Our influence is growing thanks to your generous support. But we cannot continue to produce a top-quality news and analysis program every day without you. Behind the camera there are so many expenses that we must meet if we are to continue.

And we are not just the Ron Paul Liberty Report! This year the Ron Paul Institute held two sold-out conferences, in Houston and Washington, DC, including speakers like Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Rep. Thomas Massie! We also held our second Ron Paul Scholars Seminar – a foreign policy boot camp for a terrific group of upper division undergrads and grad students! And don’t forget the thousand-plus articles we publish each year!

Without the Ron Paul Institute and the Liberty Report who would be left to tell the unvarnished truth? 

Time is running out to get all the tax credit for your donation to the Ron Paul Institute –  501(c)3 Charity – for 2021! Please act NOW before midnight on December 31st to keep the Ron Paul Institute and Liberty Report alive and growing in 2022.

The bad guys are not giving in. They are not giving up. We can stop them in 2022…but we need your help!

Please take a moment and make a stand for peace and liberty NOW!

Hope to see all of you at a future Ron Paul Institute event in 2022!
Sincerely yours,

Daniel McAdams
Executive Director
Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity

Spread Love Not Fear During Holiday Season

Posted by M. C. on December 21, 2021

It is the ultimate tragedy that criminals are in charge of the earth. In the name of public health, they have taken over, and even those confronting them, like Senator Ron Paul, are being way too nice as people, and now babies increasingly die. But, unfortunately, it is not just ordinary criminals but criminally insane psychopaths who have claimed the right to dominate 8 billion people.

https://drsircus.com/general/spread-love-not-fear-during-holiday-season/

It has been a while since I have made a personal communication. For starters, I wish everyone the best holiday possible. Though it is a time for joy it is hard to make any serious communication without mentioning what is going on in the world. For instance, governments worldwide are introducing new restrictions to curb the spread of the Omicron variant. We might as well try to curb the spread of the common cold or ordinary flu or even curb people’s thoughts.

They say that Omicron is rapidly spreading, but to know that, they would have to have installed extremely expensive testing equipment all around the world, which they have not done. So again, we have a propaganda virus being spread by the elite-owned media, which hates the human race with lies.

South Africa delivered good news on the Omicron coronavirus
variant on Friday the 17th,
reporting a much lower rate of hospital
 admissions
and signs that the wave of infections may be peaking.

This virus, which is probably a fantasy, is reported to be mild, maybe even milder than the common cold. Though no one seems to have died from it, stock markets are dropping because of this fiction. For those who love to panic, and for politicians and demented virologists who eat up any excuse to take more power, just go ahead and panic but the rest of us should enjoy our holidays.

The English, who love bad news, are saying
“England is “almost certain” to be suffering hundreds
of thousands of omicron variant cases a day
.”

Insightful Tom Luongo said, “There is still the threat in its name to our liberty and sanity from those who profit most from the fear of the virus. The aftershocks from COVID will be with us for the foreseeable future. An entire generation has been scarred by this manufactured apocalypse, and there will be no going back to the way things were.”

Wokeism

Posted by M. C. on December 5, 2021

“Wokeism” represents a political guide for replacing thousands of years of human progress. America today is suffering from mass delusions generated by various factions which agree that social and economic chaos should be promoted to bring about radical political changes.

‘Making Sense of Current Political Idiocies’ – RPI 17 November Update

Posted by M. C. on November 18, 2021

https://mailchi.mp/ronpaulinstitute/rpbook?e=4e0de347c8

Ron Paul’s Amazing New Mini-Book! Dear Friends:

Ron Paul spent this year taking a hard look at some of the seemingly intractable issues of our time. Why are CEOs of major corporations, owners of major professional sports teams, and so on, embracing a Cultural Marxism and “Woke-ism” that is rejected by the majority of the US population and seems destined to have a seriously negative impact on the bottom line of the company? Why would a company manufacturing non-political goods and providing non-political services so enthusiastically embrace hyper-political agendas destined to divide and alienate? Who the heck is Larry Fink and why is he one of the greatest threats to our liberty??? The relationship of the Federal Reserve with the pro-Woke business community is crucial to understanding how the influence of Wokeism became such a powerful threat to our liberties and social order. Why is nihilism so much on the rise? How did Dostoevsky absolutely nail what we’re going through in a book written just as the Bolsheviks were preparing to spring their trap on the Russians? If nothing else, allegiance to the ‘nothingness’ of nihilism is a rather boring way to spend one’s life. How does the emergence of Wokeism, guided by Cultural Marxism, relate to the past nearly two years of Covid tyranny? Ron Paul ties it all together in a most convincing way.

As Dr. Paul makes it clear in this mini-book, we who believe in personal freedom and civil liberties are under assault from all sides. Even from places we would never expect. He wrote: “The Marxists and their philosophical allies are greatly influencing world affairs, but a resistance movement is rapidly developing.”

Yes there is a resistance growing and that is the great takeaway from this mini-book!

As you all know, we rarely hit you with traditional “fundraisers” like most organizations. We hope that our achievements speak for themselves and that people spontaneously support what we do rather than hit them over the head with financial demands all the time. That has worked very well for us to this point.

So this is not a traditional “fundraiser,” but an opportunity for us to thank you for your support of the Ron Paul Institute with a unique premium that you literally will NOT find anywhere else!

Ron Paul’s new mini-book is not currently commercially available anywhere: You can only get it from the Ron Paul Institute. We are offering you something special – a collector’s edition of Ron Paul’s latest work.

How to get this amazing new Ron Paul publication? Simply make a tax-deductible donation to his Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity! A donation of $50 will get you a “thank you” of a copy of the book. For $100 Dr. Paul will sign the book himself, making it a treasured addition to your personal collection.

The time is very limited and the supplies are very limited so act NOW! 

What to get your liberty lover for Christmas? How about a signed copy of Ron Paul’s latest – and in my view greatest – work?

What to get someone potentially interested in liberty but not yet on board to the cause? As Biden would say, “come on, man!” It’s a no-brainer: Make your contribution to the Ron Paul Institute for a “thank you” gift of Ron Paul’s TREMENDOUS new book!

And the beauty of it is you don’t have to click any buttons or send us any message: ALL donations of $50 or more will receive this gift and ALL donations of $100 or more will receive a signed copy of the book! It could not be easier.

Your donation is made on a secure page within RPI so you can donate with complete confidence.

Support Ron Paul, support his Institute for Peace and Prosperity, and own a piece of Liberty History!

Dear Ron Paul Institute and Ron Paul Liberty Report supporters: There is an illusion that the bad guys are winning, but it is a mere chimera. We are a team, we are a tribe, we are the future of liberty. And, together, our time has come! 

Thank you so very much for being a part of this growing movement!
Sincerely yours,

Daniel McAdams
Executive Director
Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity

Property Ownership: The Ultimate Civil Liberty

Posted by M. C. on November 12, 2021

Former Congressman Ron Paul gave the tenth talk in our webinar “Restoring Our Civil Liberties.” Dr. Paul explains how without property rights, all other rights are impossible. Starting with the ultimate property right, the rights to one’s own body, to the sanctity of contracts, to the right of the people “to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures,” property rights are the fount from which liberty flows.

Ron Paul on President Biden’s New Vaccine Mandate – Campaign for Liberty

Posted by M. C. on September 17, 2021

http://www.campaignforliberty.org/ron-paul-president-bidens-new-vaccine-mandate

POSTED BY Ron PaulSeptember 10, 2021

Campaign for Liberty Chairman Ron Paul issued the following statement regarding President Biden’s vaccine mandate on all businesses with 100 or more employees:

“President Biden’s executive order forcing companies with 100 or more employees to require COVID vaccination or weekly testing has no basis in science, the Constitution, or the principles of a free society. It also sets a dangerous precedent that can and will be used to justify future federal mandates on businesses and their employees.

“My Campaign for Liberty group will mobilize pro-liberty Americans to resist these mandates and other abuses of power in regard to COVID by authoritarian politicians and bureaucrats to expand their power and shrink our liberties.”
