Ron Paul Warns "We're Just Stirring Up Trouble In Crimea"

Tyler Durden's picture

"I think it was wrong for us to get involved and participate in the overthrow of the government," exclaims Ron Paul in this brief clip, adding the US is "stirring up trouble in Crimea." The American people are "tired of it," and "it would be best for us to stay out." The US doesn't need another war - and certainly can't afford it - and "we don't want trade wars." Simply put, he concludes, "it's best we stay out."

Ol' Ron Paul...


Making far too much sense for the Amerikan people.

OT, but where the hell is that lad of yours?  He pull a carradeine or something?

All of our good trolls got 86'd. A lot of this place's personality went with them.

as much as we bashed Robo, he was right about this QE fueled retardo market, either he killed himself on his dirtbike or he's sipping cognac on the French Riviera with some hot babes

He could also be shacked up in a flea ridden motel, nursing a bad case of the clap that he picked up while hunting for cheap ho´s from downtown Caracas.

Stupidly his son said if he was president he wouldn't have let Russia 'get away' with it...

Rand is a neo-con. Pretending to be a libertarian.

The oddest thing, for everyone who's opposed to Russia taking over Crimea, they want to give Russia their money back? It's so fucked up it's unbelievable.

Where the fuck does everyone think the $38bn the Ukraine needs will go? It will go to Russia to pay their natural gas and crude oil bill.

Why don't we just directly buy Russia some tanks, combat planes and ships instead of going through the Ukrainian middleman? After all, when we go to war and destroy that equipment, it will end the recession according to Paul Krugman.

It is a shame about rand. His daddy needs to take him out back and beat some liberty into him. Especially since every poll says Americans don't want us getting involved, he could come out with something like "we condemn the Russian incursion into the Ukraine and call on a peaceful end to this conflict, and ask that the sovereignty of all nations be respected, but as this does not directly impact America's national security, we will not be involving ourselves in this internal conflict" it is surprising you only got one down vote for calling out rand Paul though. I guess as long as you don't question mark levin or Sarah palin you are ok though....

I'd estimate maybe 1 in 100 Amerikans have heard the "Fuck the EU" recording and are aware of the level of meddling the US is engaging in. Most people are just woefully ignorant when it comes to what's going on, and while it's easy to blame the media for acting as propagandists, there really isn't an excuse anymore since facts are freely available on the internet.

Most Amerikans just prefer to remain in the dark because the truth is too scary.

Ed Zachary Disease.  Where the pols in charge have their heads and asses looking exactly the same.  I also refer to this as 'Rectal-cranial Inversion Disease' and in most cases it's synonomous with 'Rectal-cranial Impaction Disease'.

I agree almost 100%...

Im gonna doubt the number is as high as "1" in 100... Unfortunately.

Or all they heard was, "Fuck the E.U.," and it got them into a "Freedom Fries," "It's not a war until the French surrender" giggling fit, and that's all the more they thought about it.  They sure didn't read or listen to the other 99% of the conversation, which laid out pretty clearly why Putin is so pissy about this.  Actually, the rest of the conversation reveals why the US isn't going to do much about this.  The banksters have already gotten what they want.  Their boy "Yats" handed over all the gold, and now they're going to impose crushing "Austerity" on Ukrainians, which will draw a knowing shudder from Greeks, Latvians and the Irish.  Oh, and anybody with bank deposits worth more than $9,675 (100,000 Hryvnia) is going to get the Corzine/Cyprus treatment.  Never mind the price of natural gas in Ukraine.  If it doubles they got off lucky.

But yeah, it was funny when that lady said "Fuck the E.U."  Stupid frog-and-cheese eating surrender monkeys. Ha-ha.

Freddie's picture

Yes I agree but the western newsmedia is pulling out all the stops to demonize Putin.  I don't watch scum TV but even sites like National Review and others are in full retard mode.  Idiots on Free Republic attacking Putin lovers as it is a Neo Con site.  The libatrd sites are probably exponentially worse.  They are saying Tea Baggers love Putin.  Sick.

Soros and the Zato types are spreading the lies in all the newsmedia.

Got into a conversation at my local bar with an attorney over the whole Ukraine situation last weekend. I broke down the Nuland phone call to him and he vehemently denied the fact that it even happened. He proceeded to ask me "where are you getting this stuff??" I told him to go on youtube and listen to it for himself. He fired back at me with "man, you can't believe everything you see or read on the internet as fact, most of these alternative news sites have not been vetted for authenticity, mainstream news has a strict code they must follow or they can flat out get sued for false reporting."

I give up man, I really do. Fuck this ride I want off now.

The idiocy of boobus americanus goes beyond the scales these days. The Zombie fad couldn't be more fitting.

If there is a catastrophic outcome from all this, then maybe it will go down in history as a major screw up by the arrogant, narcissistic, lying, illegal alien kenyan muslim sociopathic ignoramus fudge packer in chief.  Even if that were to happen, doubt the sheeple would wake up enough to know what happened and of course the pravda MSM will bury it....  what a great country....

Ron Paul... nice guy.


Also living proof that genuine, significant change cannot and will not ever come from within a hopelessly corrupt system.

Ifigenia's picture

Ron Paul is the modern Laoconte. The modern trojans, blindly lead by the ethernal jews would only fuck him.

LibertyBear's picture

I always thought Ron was a good debater. But MSM always says otherwise.

Libertarian777's picture

it's odd. In all his debates, he debates facts.

While people often say the Left doesn't like facts and makes emotional arguments, the Neocon right does the exact same. For example:

Ron says: "let the market take care of healthcare"; and the left says "you'll let people die on the street!" 

The reality is Ron, as a physician would provide services to people on the street without charge. Those left liberals wouldn't lift a damn finger to help a homeless person themselves (but they will spend all of YOUR tax money to help that homeless person).

Ron says: "we don't need to go to war with Libya / Iran / Syria / Iraq / Somalia / Kenya / Uganda / etc"; the right says "you isolationist! if we don't bomb the brown/black/green/orange/pink people, then they will soon invade the USA with terrorists. And we don't need any more terrorists in the USA, we already have 330 million of them {that's why we need the NSA program to monitor all these terrorists!})

Either way both sides argue with emotions, while Ron debates facts.

As usual the only sensible, well thought out advice comes from the guy widely viewed to be a dangerous crank.

Dr. Engali's picture

Juxtapose Ron Paul's response against Zero's, Mcshitstain's, and Boner's then ask yourself who you would prefer to lead this country. I think the answer is obvious.

Ifigenia's picture

Ron would never lead America, because he just represents the interests of 99 sheeps and not the majority 1%

Libertarian777's picture

anyone with even elementary logic training will come to the same conclusion as ZH and Ron Paul. It's like Ron Paul said, if you tell the truth, you don't need to have a good memory!

Does Ron have gazprom stocks, too?  He must have missed the email to sell.

Ron Paul is right; however, I think the Military Industrial Complex wants to stir up trouble.

NO ! REALLY ? What an amazing thought.

Remember Ross Perot? "Giant Sucking Sound" was our jobs and industry leaving on deregulation and Nafta. They shut him down, the psycho-manipulators, and they probably have an entire office dedicated to shutting down Ron Paul.

I'd like to punch those guys in the face.

I remember when he was in the run, he was asked how many limousines he had in his entourage (as if that had any real bearing on his ability to lead). His reply: we rented a car.

Duke Dog's picture

Yep, back when he was running in 1992. a local radio station here in Dallas called him up while he was driving down the ND tollway to get an interview. He was driving his Pontiac to WORK. They were fucking amazed that he didn't have a driver. During the same interview he told 'em that he still got his hair cut at the same place he had for 20+ years - $7.25.

Could we use a guy like that right now? I voted for him then and never again voted for a goddamned mainstream republican.

Blues Traveler's picture

Perot was the Man, brillant problem solver who was street wise and could be ruthless when confronted w execuses or incomeptence. I interned for Perot Systems when it first started.  He nailed NAFTA but he underestimated the ignorance/compicity of the press and underestimated the level of corruption w/n both parties as they traded american souls for asian dollars.

He also knew who the real Connecticut Bush klan were.

Ross was paid to split the repuke vote. A tried and true tactic used over and over by the Clintons. Who was the first guest invited to the white house after Bills win? (it wasn't Oprah)

Blankenstein's picture

How about the tactic to disparage those who really are good??  You know, the tried and true tactics of David Axelrod and other henchmen of TPTB.

Quantum Nucleonics's picture

Perot actually was wrong.  The jobs would have left with or without NAFTA.  The taxes and regulatory environment in the US drove manufacturing away. (If you account for productivity, 3rd world labor really isn't all that cheap)

Never heard of The Carribean Basin Initiative?

Our USA Congress voted to pay $10,000 to corporate America for every job they relocated to approved CBI Nations.


Paid OUR MONEY to make jobs go away!  Tip of the iceberg...

 "it's best we stay out."

The Vietnam war cost $738 billion in 2011 dollars and yet forced the US off the gold standard on Aug. 15, 1971.  The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have a price tag of $6000 billion.  Can we afford another war?

Of course we can, our printers go to 11.

"it's best we stay out"

Isn't that what Neville Chamberlain and Lord Halifax told each other when Germany seized the Sudetenland?  That certainly turned out swell.

Someone should tell Ron (and Obama) that having a spine is ok.

I'm beginning to think Ron Paul and Tyler Durden are one in the same. ;-)

Dont guys like Ron Paul, David Stockman & Paul Craig Roberts have any friends in high enough places to do something about this shit?
