Ron Paul DID KNOW About the Newsletters and ENDORSED THEM in 1995

I discussed the Ron Paul Newsletter a few days ago which he claims he had no knowledge of at the time. And Paul’s followers take him at his word. They might want to reconsider this one.

Only there is a problem with his assertion that he knew nothing about these letters.

My CPAC friend Doug Ross of the Doug Ross Journal posted an interesting “Top 10” list, and the 4th item on the list struck my eye.

In a television interview he gave in 1995, Ron Paul explicitly and personally endorsed the views of his newsletter: “I also do an investment letter. It’s called the Ron Paul Survival Report, and I put that out on a monthly basis … which is a gold-oriented newsletter, but it’s also, uh, convening — expressing concern about surviving in this age of big government, where there’s a lot of taxes and regulations, and attacks on our personal liberties.”

Apparently, Ron Paul did know what was in these letters and did a really good job of summing up the content. The problem with using your fame to sell a newsletter is that people actually record and document what you say. I think gives Paul a +10 on the Pinocchio Honesty Scale. And there is a report at Hot Air with additional information and other things that are turning up as Ron Paul surges. (And I did say that these things would all be pushed out in the news as Paul moves up. This is what I was talking about.)

And I find tat rather disappointing.

And Doug’s Top 10 List of things you may not know about Ron Paul is pretty interesting. I admit I was not aware of many of these.

10. “Of the 620 measures that Paul has sponsored, just four have made it to a vote on the House floor. Only one has been signed into law.

9. Ron Paul is 76 years old and would be 80 at the end of a hypothetical first term.

8. In 2007, Ron Paul criticized Abraham Lincoln for using military force to end slavery during the Civil War: “He shouldn’t have gone to war… Slavery was phased out in every other country in the world and the way I’m advising that it should have been done is do like the British Empire did; you buy the slaves and release them.”

7. In 2009, Ron Paul said even the Nazi Holocaust was not sufficient cause for interventionism. He said, among other things, “No, I wouldn’t. I wouldn’t risk American lives to [end the Holocaust].”

6. The Washington Post‘s Charles Lane — hardly a “neocon” — says that “Paul actually comes closest to the foreign policy views of Obama’s longtime religious leader, Jeremiah Wright.”

5. Just days after the horrific 9/11 attacks that killed 3,000 Americans,Ron Paul blamed America for the attacks: “It is clear that protecting certain oil interests and our presence in the Persian Gulf help drive the holy war. Muslims see this as an invasion and domination by a foreign enemy, which inspires radicalism.”

4. In a television interview he gave in 1995, Ron Paul explicitly and personally endorsed the views of his newsletter: “I also do an investment letter. It’s called the Ron Paul Survival Report, and I put that out on a monthly basis … which is a gold-oriented newsletter, but it’s also, uh, convening — expressing concern about surviving in this age of big government, where there’s a lot of taxes and regulations, and attacks on our personal liberties.”

And yes, I’m gonna make you click this link to jump to Doug Ross’ Journal to read the top 3 items.

  1. Sara for America says:

    Another great post. It appears all this evidence stands to be ignored by those who already have their minds made up. Sort of like how Obama ended up in the Oval Office.

  2. Mark the American says:

    Quite honestly I don't care about these newsletters and really don't care if Paul wrote them himself. Given the length of time and the fact that humans change or evolve how we think and act over time this information is simply garbage! There is no candidate from any party that with enough time and effort you can't dig something up from their past to paint them in a negative light. As long as we waste our time with these silly insignificant butt nuggets from our past then we might as well reside ourselves to living the remaining years of our lives with a country stuck in a ditch. I do hope you enjoy your wallow in the mud.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
