Ron Paul: "US Interferes In Foreign Elections All The Time"

Tyler Durden's picture

When asked whether all the "Russian hacking" allegations were just a simple "political stunt" or whether a serious investigation needed to be conducted, Ron Paul offered up a startling bit of reality pointing out that America has a long history of interfering with elections and even invading countries "to have our guy in."  We suspect the following response was a bit more truth than Fox Business News expected.

“I think it is politics more than anything else.  It's really is nothing new. It’s like, guess what – somebody might have done A, B, C.”


"The very rarely, if ever, compare what we do with election around the world.  We are interfering all the time." 


"I’m sure the Russians are interfering.  But when you lose, you can jump on that and make a big point of it. But I don’t think it made any difference.  I think it’s insignificant."


“If you review the history of how many elections we’ve been involved with, how many countries we’ve invaded and how many people we’ve killed to have our guy in, I’ll tell you what – we don’t have very much room for condemning anybody else.”


“I think the spying and interference is sort of the nature of our governments. That’s why I’d like to see government much smaller."

Here is the full interview:

Pointing out hypocrisy is fine but it was a leak...not a hack.

Ron Paul, the voice of reason in a world of illusion.

Now this is how stupid THEY think WE are...

"Because Podesta received so much data through the private account, several aides also had access to it – and one of them sent the warning to a computer technician to make sure it was legitimate before anyone clicked on the "change password" button, the Times reported.

"This is a legitimate email," Clinton campaign aide Charles Delavan replied to another Podesta aide who'd noticed the alert, the Times reported. "John needs to change his password immediately."

"With another click, a decade of emails that Mr. Podesta maintained in his Gmail account — a total of about 60,000 — were unlocked for the Russian hackers," the Times reported.

But Delavan told the Times he knew the warning was a phishing attack because the campaign was getting "dozens of them" – and that he'd meant to type that it was an "illegitimate" email.

It was an "error that he said has plagued him ever since," the Times reported."

...we are "expected" to believe that in >>>2016<<<...anyone...(even the smartest people in THE FUCKING WORLD...IT, aides or even click on an offered link in an unsolicited email?

(Mumbling, cursing, spitting)

These are the stupidest people on the planet for even putting something like this out there.

It would have been careless of Russia NOT to interfere when their national security was at risk. And Putin isn't [extremely] careless...unlike someone we know.
But yes, the CIA is still second to none when it comes to interfering with elections around the world.

Sorry Ron, liberals can be anything they want, up to amd including, liars, cheaters, thieves, rapists, murderers, and of course hypocrites, without any consequence.

Inlcuding being straight up fake liberal progressives. Notice how fake liberals and fake conservatives, actually promote the same ideas just with different language, whilst just giving lip service to real liberals and real conservatives.

I agree with you.

The real point is that the warmonger globalists consider that the mere fact that Russia does not make its submission to their will, that Russia prefers that the US elect for president someone who does not want to balkanize or attack It, is an agression, a threat, a hack, ... etc.

The russian hacking mantra is nothing but spin.

Wasn't Mossadegh democratically elected?

musimann's picture

and democratically killed by the CIA. Yea bozo appeared like a complete retarded hypocrite threatening Russia for things that the US does all the time - and much much worse. At one point in his self righteous diatribe he said "our democratic values" and I had no idea what he was referring too.

That's OK. I'm just a dedicated smartass. That misspelling just struck me as funny, reminding me of a character in a novel who pronounced frog as flog.

He's been driving the bandwagon, not jumping on it at the last second.

Sure. Have it your way. I didn't say "at the last second", I said a couple of weeks later.

With all the information out there, it's astonishing that people in the US still think that the war in Syria and other countries are for humanitarian efforts.

What about the illegal activity of the Clinton campaign / DNC: - conspiring to break the Hatch Act, - coordinating funding activities with SuperPAC's, - paying subcontractors to incite violence and stuff ballot boxes, not to mention various and sundry immoral and unethical activity? 

Keep ur eye on the ball, bitchez

Yes, those people in UKR, SYR, and LBY have secure Elections held with all that Regime Change-Coup-thingy going on for them...

Oh, great. Now Ron Paul is talking Stupid. The Russians did not interfere in our Elections. A young man lost his life handing over a thumb drive to WikiLeaks and Podesta's email was hacked. The only interference proven in our election was from the Democratic Party fixing the votes and "special" electors for Clinton. Now, Obama is threatening War with Russia. Americans are totally idiots, unable to even tell a hack from a leak.
