Ron Paul’s Soros Defense Plan

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

Also on the task force is Laicie Olson of the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation. The Center is actually a subset of the Council for a Livable World. Olson originally worked for Physicians for Social Responsibility.

Another task force member was Heather Hurlburt of the National Security Network (NSN). The NSN’s goals are to “build a strong progressive national security and counter conservative spin.” Its founder was part of Obama’s transition team and resigned to work for Janet Napolitano. Soros’s OSI helped fund NSN, and its Special Counsel was on the NSN Policy Committee.

If you’re tired of reading through all this, then here’s the summary. Of the Paul-Frank Task Force, 9 out of 14 members were linked to Soros’s organs. Two were affiliated with the Cato Institute. One is indeterminate.

Ron Paul proposed to put a bunch of Soros-funded think tank experts in charge of dismantling the US military. Think about that for a moment. Ron Paul supporters can see conspiracies in a glass of water; can they see anything wrong with this picture? Can they see anything wrong with having a man from a group that was investigated for its Communist ties in the driver’s seat on national defense?

The task force’s proposals included cutting nuclear deterrence; reducing the fleet by 57 ships, including two carriers; canceling the Joint Strike Fighter; “severely curtail missile defense” — and that is a direct quote from the report — retiring four Marine battalions; reducing the military by 200,000 personnel; cutting defense research spending by 50 billion over ten years; and increasing health care fees for members of the military.

Not only did Paul join forces with Barney Frank to slash military preparedness, but he ended up putting the experts of a foreign billionaire with global ambitions in charge of the project. And that was what he did as a congressman. Can anyone imagine what he would do as president?

But why would Ron Paul allow George Soros that much power and influence over America’s defense policy? There are a number of possibilities. There is the possibility that Ron Paul just didn’t know and didn’t bother to do his research. Which is not much of a recommendation for the job he’s running for. There’s another possibility that Ron Paul knew and didn’t care, that he had no objection to being part of a left-right alliance against the “American Empire” with Soros. But there’s also a third possibility.

During the previous election, Americans Against Escalation in Iraq (AAEI) ran an ad praising Ron Paul for his position against the war. AAEI was an umbrella group for MoveOn.org, the Center for American Progress, SEIU, Americans United For Change, the National Security Network and others in the progressive bestiary. A number of those beasties were Soros groups.

I’m not one to dabble in conspiracy theories, but when Soros pays for an ad praising you during the Republican primaries and then you put his experts in charge of America’s defense policy, then maybe some questions should be asked.

  • Paul

    RON PAUL FOLLOWS THE CONSTITUTION — THE RINO'S DO NOT!!!
    WE ARE FIGHTING 'WARS' FOR DEFENSE PROFITEERING! WAKE THE FU** UP!

  • BewilderedAmerican

    Yes, exactly. Ron Paul will run as an independent, siphoning votes away from the Republican candidate, and give the election to Obama. And his idea of defending America is to lay down and die; thus helping set up a world-wide Islamic caliphate; which is Soros' goal.

    My son is a battalion commander in A-Stan, which is the main reason why I WON'T vote for Ron Paul.

    More like support the troops by getting rid of Ron Paul… unless of course you meant the troops of islam, Mr. copy-paste.

    Ru Paul blamed Iraeli mossad for the WTC 1993 attack.
    Koo koo, koo koo

  • Military Mom

    My son just returned from Iraq, and he’s currently in Iowa, campaigning for Dr Paul. Paul has received more campaign contributions from active duty soldiers than any other candidate. Support our troops! Support Ron Paul!

    Let's see, Daniel Greenfield has backed up his claim all throughout the article (which you haven't read). You, on the other hand, are repeating R.P propaganda, without anything remotely close to an argument to back it up.
    So, who is misleading again?

    Gen G Patton:

    "In times of peace, prepare for war"

    You are a moonbat, Obama is ALL OVER the east, murdering people all over.
    You are a jacka$$ if you REALLY think that he would bring the troops all home after the Obama clusterf*ck

  • Sandy

    You took the words right out of my mouth, was just getting ready to say as much.

  • Paleocon

    Okay. You claim he’s an “anti-semite,” yet offer no proof. I provide evidence to the contrary, and your only response is that Professor Block, a Jew, “is just the type of person who would support Ron Paul.” No argument there, but you kinda surrendered your initial assertion.

    And, how does the fact that Murray Rothbard was 10x smarter than you’ll ever be make HIM “self-hating”? If anyone should hate himself, it should be YOU, for being such a dumb@ss.

    If it were possible for you paul-haters to combine IQs, I would recommend it. I mean, really:

    1) “he’s an anti-semite,” who apparently doesn’t hate Jews or Arabs — both semites. But, apparently, many paul-haters are anti-semites, because THEY obviously have a HUGE problem with Arabs.

    2) “neocon is code for anti-semitic” (never mind that this statement isn’t even coherent). “Neocon” is a term invented by… wait for it…NEOCONS, and applied to themselves, to describe themselves. It isn’t an epithet. If you don’t like your word anymore, come up with something new [I recommend "avant-garde traditionalists," because it's fun, and it makes just as much sense as your current name], but stop pretending you’re real conservatives, because you’re not.

    3) finally, make up your minds: does he hate all semites, just Jews, Israelis, neocons (I gotta give you that one), or just Israeli Jews who are neocons? If you’re gonna make up stories, you really need to stick to them, because, if your smears are too convoluted, people are just gonna know you’re lying. So, get your story straight.

    At any rate, get therapy, because you people really are too much. What a riot!

  • mjazz

    That's why that recent comment from the O administration trying to make a distinction between European antisemitism and arab antisemitism was untrue.

  • Stephen_Brady

    "Neoconservative" was the term self-applied by the idea's original adherents. They have long since abandoned the idea, because the moment in history passed when the spread of democracy and Western values was possible, after the fall of the Soviet Union. It would seem that people on the Left, and libertarians, didn't believe that Western values and democracy should be advanced, across the world, by the nations that won he Cold War.

    Today, "neocon" is a word which is almost exclusively used by the followers of Ron Paul, and applied to anyone who disagrees with either Dr. Paul or themselves.

    Naturally, I don't expect someone with the the IQ of a slug … like you … to understand this …

  • sasss31

    Beautifully stated my friend!

  • Andy

    Nuts. We can defend ourselves better without being spread out all over the globe. Bring home our 15000 tanks and we can DEFEND and PROTECT, something we cannot do while our tanks are overseas.

    Ditzkopf.

    IF Ron Paul runs as an Independent he will siphon votes from Obama via disenfranchised Democrats right along with a sizable share of the Independents while keeping his Republican votes.
    Sounds like a win to me.

  • sasss31

    I loved that commentary of yours! It truly highlighted who Ron Paul is and the threat he poses to not only America, but to western civilization and at the end of the day: humanity itself!

  • KS Patriot

    Source?

  • Paleocon

    While it’s nice that you’ve started reading, and have stopped claiming that “‘neocon’ is a curse-word made up by Democrats, and doesn’t mean anything,” apparently you’re still having trouble coping with your predictable cognitive dissonance.

    That fact of the matter is this: though the original neocons themselves may be dead, the monster they created lives on. Since they did not have the good manners to take along the political-philosophy they contrived and christened, when they passed, since we’re still stuck with it, we must call it something; so we call it by its given name (to do otherwise would be imprecise and ill-mannered).

    A person who denies the existence of God may claim he’s “not an atheist,” but whether he knows it or not, whether he knows the meaning of the word, or even that the word exists, an atheist its exactly what he is; there’s no escaping it.

    I’m glad to see that you no longer claim that “neocon” is a code word for “Jew” (there may be some hope for you, after all); to continue to claim such — in light of the evidence — would be continued foolishness, since only a fraction of contemporary neocons are Jewish, and since many of the neocons’ most prominent detractors are Jewish, themselves … but of course, you’re starting to realize that, now, aren’t you? Good for you. You’re starting to grow up.

    Exactly, Mah.

    What I think of Rus followers is this:
    If they were handed the kool aid, they would swallow it willingly like cheshire cats.

    "and please don't bring up USS Liberty crap "
    Why? Because the majority who support funding Israel don't know that Israel intentionally fired on one of our ships and probably would reconsider that position if they knew about it?
    At one time I was such a person…
    But then I learned a couple things and now have two very good reason not to continue that aid. Those two good reasons are: Israel fired upon us and we cannot afford to continue printing money to give away anyone, let alone Israel and the REST of the Middle East…

    In Communism, government controls the wealth.

    In Fascism, the wealthy control the government.

    In Individualism, there is minimal government, with what rules do exist applying equally to all, without favoritism or privilege for any. People are responsible for themselves, and only responsible for each other, to the degree they privately choose to be. Taxation is recognized as theft and conscription as slavery, so other methods must be employed for funding and defense.

    I’m an Individualist. Unlike you, I don’t subscribe to any authoritarian/totalitarian political philosophies. In fact, if you aren’t an Individualist, you aren’t a real American, and I want you out of my country, now.

  • Rachel Corrie

    “pro-israel” if code pink for “israel ober alles!” Anytime someone declares himself “Pro-Israel,” I imagine him clicking his heels, and giving a Roman salute.

    If you’re “Pro-Israel,” you are anti-America. If you’re only “Pro-America” to the extent that Americans dedicate their wealth and their blood to the defense of Israel, above all other nations, then get your un-American arse out of my country, and stop interfering in American elections.

    Got it?

    In other words you have not he slightest clue what a "Commie" or a "Fascist" is. You also have no idea what Personal Liberty or the Constitution is.
    Way to astound us with your giant intellect.

  • nalejbank

    We government workers are the Commies and Fascists, not Paul supporters. They are just outnumbered and have no chance of making a difference. We understand why they're pissed but we just laugh! After all, to be patriotic today is to protect the fine jobs that all our government workers do each day. We don't worry about taxes because we don't pay any. It's you private sector suckers that are getting milked of your production. Our union pay and contractors will fund only those candidates that will leave the key instrumentalities like the Federal Reserve and the Income Tax in place and unchallenged. If we can't raise taxes on you private sector laborers and small businesses then we'll just have China or some other foolish country to buy our debt. If that doesn't work, the FED will buy it by creating money with their computers or print what we need. You lose!
    With nearly 50% of American "workers" getting a check from some level of government, how the heck do you think you will ever elect a guy like Ron Paul? Now that we have this many voters, you are outnumbered. If you were going to save this country, you should have kept George H.W. Bush off of the Reagan ticket. He is one of us! Why do you think he supports Mitt Romney? Why do you think McCain endorsed Romney? Why do you think Romney and Obama get so much Goldman Sachs donations?
    If any of us really cared about the Constitution, don't you think we would have said so? We don't. In fact, we only tell you we do so you'll get off our backs and think there is hope.
    We will ride this gravy train until the system collapses so we can nationalize all of the private sector and make you permanent serfs to us! We only care about ourselves and you are our meal ticket!
    Try as you might, you cannot beat the heavy hand of government force.
    Oh, and by the way, we're shutting down the internet eventually too!
    Resistance is Futile!
