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

Posted by M. C. on November 18, 2021

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.”

Even Mainstream Media Is Now Asking Big Questions About Covid Vaccines | ZeroHedge

Posted by M. C. on August 26, 2021

Even The Daily Beast, which has spent much of the pandemic shaming the ‘vaccine hesitant’ is now admitting that “ultra-vaxxed” Israel is now seeing numbers of infection

Former Congressman Ron Paul has highlighted this week that a handful of mainstream media articles have actually begun to break ranks in terms of questioning key aspects of vaccine effectiveness and mandates, particularly when it comes to the controversial boosters now being widely proposed.

“Even mainstream media is now asking big questions about the vaccines” Wednesday’s Liberty Report featured. A couple of recent headlines in Bloomberg and BBC were unexpected in terms the criticism reflected and somewhat skeptical pushback against the ‘consensus narrative’.

The first news article that Congressman Paul and co-host Daniel McAdams highlight is from Bloomberg.

Here’s how the very unexpected Bloomberg article, which was published this past weekend, began:

Anecdotes tell us what the data can’t: Vaccinated people appear to be getting the coronavirus at a surprisingly high rate. But exactly how often isn’t clear, nor is it certain how likely they are to spread the virus to others. 

Though it is evident vaccination still provides powerful protection against the virus, there’s growing concern that vaccinated people may be more vulnerable to serious illness than previously thought.

And the same day as the BBG headline, there was this from UK government-funded BBC…

“Is catching Covid now better than more vaccine?”

The story began:

It is now a serious question that has implications for whether children should ever be vaccinated. And whether we use the virus or booster shots to top up immunity in adults. Both have become contentious issues.

“We could be digging ourselves into a hole, for a very long time, where we think we can only keep Covid away by boosting every year,” Prof Eleanor Riley, an immunologist from the University of Edinburgh, told me.

Surprising…

A mere month or more ago such statements found in these couple of mainstream media articles would get a person possibly suspended from Facebook or Twitter.

But they underscore just how ‘experimental’ the whole scenario is, despite governments in a number of places now mandating COVID-19 vaccines, with boosters just around the corner and already being implemented in some places (with Israel previously being the first) on a mass scale.

Health experts warn not to jump the gun—or line—in taking a third dose. https://t.co/2Fqh0sfv4z — ABC News (@ABC) August 21, 2021

Soon we could see health officials pushing a second booster, a third, and on and on it will go…

Even The Daily Beast, which has spent much of the pandemic shaming the ‘vaccine hesitant’ is now admitting that “ultra-vaxxed” Israel is now seeing numbers of infections skyrocket

“I don’t want to frighten you,” COVID-19 czar Dr. Salman Zarka told the Israeli parliament. “But this is the data. Unfortunately, the numbers don’t lie.”

A massive surge of infections in ultra-vaxxed Israel is pointing to a complicated path ahead. https://t.co/ZVwdlLrxQL — The Daily Beast (@thedailybeast) August 24, 2021

It appears that some in the media are actually beginning to acknowledge the “rush” for boosters is far too premature, and too little is yet known.

Guess Who Was Called a Crank, and Who’s Now a Covid Hero – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on June 24, 2021

Here was the man who, on the House floor in 2001, predicted exactly what would happen with the housing boom and bust. He said the Federal Reserve was replacing the dot-com boom with a real estate boom, which would surely unravel.

He knew Fannie and Freddie’s days were numbered.

Not one other person running for president in 2008 or 2012 had had the first clue about any of this.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2021/06/thomas-woods/guess-who-was-called-a-crank-and-whos-now-a-covid-hero/

By Tom Woods

From the Tom Woods Letter:

There have been a lot of bad guys over the past year and a half.

But there have been good guys, too.

And there’s something interesting that the two best guys have in common (and it has to do with my subject line for today).

By my estimation, the best U.S. senator — by far — throughout this fiasco has been Rand Paul, and the best member of the House has been Rep. Thomas Massie.

Both have been excellent on lockdowns, masks, vaccines and vaccine passports. Both have pushed back against Fauci. Were it not for Rand, we probably wouldn’t know a thing about gain-of-function research and Wuhan.

Ain’t no way a product of the GOP establishment was going to come out swinging like Rand.

Mitt Romney standing up to Fauci? Don’t make me laugh.

John McCain standing up to Fauci? This is the guy who assured us he was learning about economics because he bought Alan Greenspan’s book — an indication of utter hopelessness if ever there were one.

Most Republican governors were horrendous through this ordeal.

But Rand Paul and Thomas Massie? A+ throughout.

Yes, both men represent Kentucky, but that’s incidental.

The key: both are products of the Ron Paul revolution.

Now let’s recall: when Ron Paul himself was running for president, both the media and the Republican establishment — and, to their eternal shame, some “conservatives” — ridiculed him. He’s a “crank”! We demand someone who will flatter us and speak in platitudes we recognize!

It was embarrassing.

Here was the man who, on the House floor in 2001, predicted exactly what would happen with the housing boom and bust. He said the Federal Reserve was replacing the dot-com boom with a real estate boom, which would surely unravel.

He knew Fannie and Freddie’s days were numbered.

Not one other person running for president in 2008 or 2012 had had the first clue about any of this.

And of course he was right: when the market tried to send people red lights in 2000 and 2001, the Fed turned them all green. So people persisted in the same bad investments, making the eventual crash all the worse, and perpetuating the myths that “housing prices never fall” and “a house is the best investment you can make.” (The 2001 recession is the only one on record in which housing starts actually increased.)

Dr. Paul was withering on the U.S. warfare state, and this of course turned “conservatives” against him. The idea was: we favor limited government, but exporting feminism to Afghanistan and running a world empire? Sign us up!

Not exactly the conservatism of yesteryear, that.

Now, after COVID, perhaps some conservatives are willing to entertain the idea that the whole regime is dangerous and rotten and run by liars, and that that just might also include the people who run the foreign policy.

Incidentally, has anybody been checking in on where Rick Santorum stands on lockdowns? Or the utterly forgettable Tim Pawlenty, whom Sean Hannity promoted? Or any of the other empty suits?

Ron created something lasting. Unlike the suits, he took on rather than aped the establishment. He raised issues like the Federal Reserve that no focus group told him to mention, simply because he considered it urgent for the American public to know about them.

He told a Florida audience that free trade with Cuba was the morally correct position, even though he knew that meant a lot of people would never consider voting for him.

Who else does that?

Who else just honestly tells us his views, and is consistent in those views over a 40-year period?

Even if you disagreed with him on this or that, those disagreements are trivial when compared to the big picture: here’s someone who’s honest, who will stand up against anyone, and who actually is what all the other Republicans only pretend to be?

Yes, it’s that kind of man who inspires a Thomas Massie — and, of course, a Rand Paul.

And Ron himself, on his daily Liberty Report, has been outstanding on COVID from day one.

For old times’ sake, here’s the TV ad I wrote for Ron in 2012, summarizing his merits in a mere 60 seconds, and which ran on CNN:

And of course, here’s the K-12 homeschool curriculum I created 400 videos for at Dr. Paul’s request:

http://www.RonPaulHomeschool.com

 The man is a hero, and his anti-establishment stance — the very thing that got him called a “crank” — has now been vindicated a thousand times over.

The Social-Cultural Authoritarian Bubble Will Pop!

Posted by M. C. on February 12, 2021

The century-old big government obsession in America is getting old and weathered. Debts that are never-ending…Wars that are never-ending…One Federal Reserve economic bubble after another…Social-Cultural manias…All are coming to a head at some point. Big Government is always unsustainable, and Americans should once again embrace their roots of individual liberty.

Do Elections Matter? | Mises Institute

Let us continue to preach the truth of Liberty. Ideas have consequences, and unless we spread the ideas of freedom and free markets first, no election or politician will bring about the changes we want.

In a country of 330 million people, the idea that democracy produces outcomes that reflect “the consent of the governed… becomes entirely meaningless.”
