Nazi-Linked Pied Piper Ron Paul: All Roads Lead to Romney

Ron Paul, Rom­ney Confederate

COMMENT: In the past, we’ve looked at GOP can­di­date Ron Paul’s sup­port from, and active liai­son with, Nazi and white suprema­cist ele­ments. We’ve also looked at his Islam­o­fas­cist sup­port as well. (Paul appears to have been involved in the abortive Dominica coup in 1981, dis­cussed in AFA #13.)

To see a GOP pres­i­den­tial can­di­date cozy­ing up with Nazis and white suprema­cists shouldn’t come as a sur­prise, given the fact that the party’s eth­nic out­reach orga­ni­za­tion lit­tle more than an exten­sion of the Third Reich.

The Rea­gan GOP was staffed by per­son­nel selected by Helene von Damm, a pro­tege of Otto von Bolschwing, Eichmann’s supe­rior in admin­is­ter­ing the Third Reich’s exter­mi­na­tion of the Jews.

Implicit in this post are sev­eral questions:

  • Is Ron Paul an oper­a­tive of the Under­ground Reich? Is that why he main­tains the kinds of con­nec­tions that he fos­ters? Is that why he wrote the things in his newslet­ters that he did?
  • Is “1% er” Mitt Rom­ney an oper­a­tive of the Under­ground Reich?
  • Is Peter Ack­er­man, another “1% er” and one of the dri­ving forces behind the “Mus­lim Broth­er­hood Spring” of 2011 Under­ground Reich? Is that the rea­son behind his launch­ing of Amer­i­cans Elect? Note in this con­text that Grover Norquist and Karl Rove launched the Islamic Free Mar­ket Insti­tute, a par­al­lel net­work to the GOP/Nazi eth­nic out­reach milieu.
  • Will Paul’s young pot­heads be allowed to inhale some weed, just before they inhale some Zyk­lon B?

 

Russ Bellant’s land­mark text about GOP/Nazi Interface

Not the mav­er­ick he por­trays him­self as being, Paul is openly allied with GOP fron­trun­ner Mitt Rom­ney, and could serve Rom­ney in a num­ber of ways.

Recently, Paul gar­nered enthu­si­as­tic sup­port dur­ing a tour of col­lege cam­puses, tout­ing his oppo­si­tion to the Iraq War, desire to elim­i­nate the Fed­eral Reserve and sup­port for states rights, among other things.

Claim­ing he might not sup­port his ally Rom­ney if he got the nom­i­na­tion, Paul has floated the idea of run­ning as an inde­pen­dent. Should he do that, it is pos­si­ble that he might pull in some of the morons–young morons in particular–who’ve been hood­winked by his Third Posi­tion views.

Ful­fill­ing the role of a right-wing Ralph Nader, he could be decisive–for Romney.

In this post, we are going to exam­ine a num­ber of things, including:

  • Ron Paul’s suc­cess with young and igno­rant vot­ers. Using his oppo­si­tion to wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, desire to cut off U.S. for­eign aid to Israel (which res­onates with the Berkeley/Pacifica Radio con­stituency), sup­port for “states rights” mar­i­juana ini­tia­tives and adher­ence to the 9/11 Truther ide­ol­ogy, Paul has suc­cess­fully played the role of pied piper to the young and inno­cent. His recent suc­cess at U.C. Berke­ley fol­lows on the heels of a stand­ing ova­tion given to Louis Far­rakhan by an audi­ence at the same institution.
  • The curi­ous loca­tion of Ron Paul’s super PAC in Utah, home to the largest Mor­mon pop­u­la­tion in the U.S. (Rom­ney is, of course, a mem­ber of the LDS.)
  • The piv­otal role of ultra right-winger Peter Thiel in the Ron Paul fund-raising effort. Thiel has donated most of the money that has gone into the Utah-based Ron Paul super PAC. In FTR #718, we looked at Thiel’s links to the Under­ground Reich milieu.
  • The overt polit­i­cal alliance between Paul and Rom­ney, some­thing that should sur­prise no one.
  • We also under­take review of some inter­est­ing con­nec­tions between the Under­ground Reich and the Mor­mon Church.
  • A Ger­man national who has become one of the most impor­tant offi­cials in the Mor­mon faith has overt links to the ver­triebene milieu. Jerry Uchtdorf’s fam­ily are Sude­ten Ger­mans, expelled from Czecho­slo­va­kia and later East Ger­many, expe­ri­ences that appar­ently informed much of Uchtdorf’s cur­rent polit­i­cal per­spec­tive.
  • The LDS has given a con­sid­er­able amount of money to Islamic Relief World­wide, a Mus­lim Broth­er­hood front orga­ni­za­tion founded by a rel­a­tive of Has­san al-Banna him­self. (Al-Banna is the founder of the fas­cist Mus­lim Broth­er­hood.) Islamic Relief’s U.S. rep­re­sen­ta­tive is Kazbek Soob­zokov, son of SS offi­cer and for­mer U.S. intel­li­gence agent Tscherim Soob­zokov. Islamic Relief has man­i­fested overt Nazi sym­pa­thies and sym­bol­ism, as well as sup­port­ing Hamas and [allegedly] Chechen terrorists.
  • Sup­port for Ron Paul given by Amer­i­cans Elect, an orga­ni­za­tion founded by Peter Ack­er­man, for­mer right-hand man to Junk Bond King Michael Milken, finan­cial angel to non­vi­o­lent the­o­reti­cian Gene Sharp and one of the forces behind the “Mus­lim Broth­er­hood Spring” of 2011. Amer­i­cans Elect could lend impe­tus to a Ron Paul Third Party can­di­dacy which, in turn, might siphon enough anti-war, anti-Israel, “Truther,” pro-weed votes away from Obama to do for Rom­ney what Ralph Nader did for George W. Bush in 2000.
  • Romney’s alliance with Israeli Prime Min­is­ter Ben­jamin Netanyahu, him­self an heir to the fas­cist ele­ment within the Zion­ist movement.

“Ron Paul Says He Won’t Quit Race” by Carla Mar­in­ucci; San Fran­cisco Chron­i­cle; 4/6/2012.

EXCERPT: GOP pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Ron Paul, on a three-day cam­paign swing in Cal­i­for­nia that has attracted over­flow crowds, said Thurs­day his with­drawal from the race is “not going to hap­pen” — and he isn’t cer­tain he’ll sup­port Mitt Rom­ney should the for­mer Mass­a­chu­setts gov­er­nor win the party’s nomination. . . .

. . . . Paul also left open the door — at least a crack — to declare him­self an inde­pen­dent pres­i­den­tial can­di­date. Asked if he had ruled it out, Paul said, “I have my hands full right now.” He added: “I’m in the mid­dle of a process and I want to find out how many del­e­gates we have and whether there’s going to be a bro­kered convention.”

This week, Paul has attracted record crowds of 5,000 to 7,000 peo­ple at Chico State Uni­ver­sity and UCLA.

On Thurs­day night, he spoke to thou­sands of peo­ple in Memo­r­ial Glade in front of UC Berkeley’s Doe Library. Paul was greeted with chants of “Pres­i­dent Paul” and was obvi­ously ener­gized to be in what he called the home of “free speech.”

The chants were atyp­i­cal of those usu­ally heard on the cam­pus, includ­ing “End the Fed,” and “U.S.A., U.S.A.”

Paul spoke about cut­ting the fed­eral bud­get and end­ing wars, but the loud­est cheers came when he railed against the war on drugs.

In a ref­er­ence to the raid this week on Oak­s­ter­dam Uni­ver­sity and mar­i­juana dis­pen­sary in Oak­land, he said, “If you have states’ rights in Cal­i­for­nia, you wouldn’t have the feds bug­ging you and telling you what you could do with your own body.” . . .

COMMENT: Ron Paul’s super PAC is in Romney’s back­yard. (Rom­ney is, of course, a Mormon–the faith that is pre­dom­i­nant in Utah.)

“Utah-Based Super PAC Sup­ports Paul–not Rom­ney” by Matt Can­ham; Salt Lake Tri­bune; 2/20/2012.

EXCERPT: . . . . This isn’t a class project or some kind of prank. It’s the work of Endorse Lib­erty, the biggest super PAC sup­port­ing Ron Paul. Founded in late Decem­ber and head­quar­tered in Utah, this group of polit­i­cal novices backed by a Sil­i­con Val­ley bil­lion­aire has already spent $3.5 mil­lion push­ing its online ads into early pri­mary states where they have been viewed 12 mil­lion times.

“It is safe to say Endorse Lib­erty is a new force on the scene,” said Michael Beckel, who tracks super PAC spend­ing for the Cen­ter for Pub­lic Integrity.

Super polit­i­cal action com­mit­tees have been around for only two years, cre­ated in the after­math of a Supreme Court rul­ing that allowed cor­po­ra­tions, unions and indi­vid­u­als to give as much money as they want to groups act­ing inde­pen­dently of the candidates. . . .

COMMENT: The bulk of the financ­ing for Paul’s super PAC comes from Sil­i­con Val­ley mover-and-shaker Peter Thiel. An ultra-right winger with a back­ground sug­ges­tive of pos­si­ble Under­ground Reich con­nec­tions, Thiel has opined that “Free­dom and Democ­racy are incompatible.”

“Pay­Pal co-Founder Peter Thiel Donates Mil­lions to Ron Paul Super PAC” by Charles Riley; money.cnn.com ; 2/20/2012.

EXCERPT: Silicon Val­ley renais­sance man Peter Thiel donated another $1.7 mil­lion in Jan­u­ary to a super PAC that backs Ron Paul, accord­ing to dis­clo­sure doc­u­ments filed Monday.

The Pay­Pal co-founder donated $1 mil­lion on Jan­u­ary 3, and fol­lowed that up 10 days later with an addi­tional $700,000 gift.

. . . Thiel’s $2.6 mil­lion in total dona­tions account for 76% of the super PAC’s fundrais­ing since it came online late last year, under­scor­ing the abil­ity of deep-pocketed donors to have a major impact on cam­paign spending. . . .

COMMENT: It should sur­prise no one that Rom­ney and Paul are strate­gic polit­i­cal allies.

“For Paul and Rom­ney, a Strate­gic Alliance between Estab­lish­ment and Out­sider” by Amy Gard­ner; Wash­ing­ton Post; 2/1/2012.

EXCERPT: . . . Despite deep dif­fer­ences on a range of issues, Rom­ney and Paul became friends in 2008, the last time both ran for pres­i­dent. So did their wives, Ann Rom­ney and Carol Paul. The for­mer Mass­a­chu­setts gov­er­nor com­pli­ments the Texas con­gress­man dur­ing debates, prais­ing Paul’s reli­gious faith dur­ing the last one, in Jack­sonville, Fla. Imme­di­ately after­ward, as is often the case, the Pauls and the Rom­neys grav­i­tated toward one another to say hello.

The Romney-Paul alliance is more than a curi­ous con­nec­tion. It is a strate­gic part­ner­ship: for Paul, an oppor­tu­nity to gain a seat at the table if his long-shot bid for the pres­i­dency fails; for Rom­ney, a chance to gain sup­port from one of the most vibrant sub­groups within the Repub­li­can Party.

“It would be very fool­ish for any­body in the Repub­li­can Party to dis­miss a very real con­stituency,” said one senior GOP aide in Wash­ing­ton who is famil­iar with both camps. “Ron Paul plays a very valu­able part in the process and brings a lot of vot­ers toward the Repub­li­can Party and ulti­mately into the vot­ing booth, and that’s some­thing that can’t be ignored.” . . .

COMMENT: In FTR #631,we explored a high-ranking Mor­mon offi­cial who rep­re­sents an appar­ent link between the LDS and the “ver­triebene groups.” That broad­cast high­lights the back­ground of a Ger­man national, who has become one of the most impor­tant mem­bers of the lead­er­ship of the Mor­mon faith. Note that Jerry Uchtdorf’s fam­ily was expelled from the for­mer Czecho­slo­va­kia. The Sude­ten Ger­mans and other Ger­man minor­ity fac­tions in the for­mer Czecho­slo­va­kia formed a pro-Nazi Fifth Col­umn before the Ger­man occu­pa­tion of that coun­try. The alleged “oppres­sion” of the Sude­ten Ger­mans and oth­ers was the pre­text for Hitler’s takeover of that coun­try. After the war, those Ger­mans were expelled, and came under the sway of the ver­triebene groups, over­seen by ele­ments of the post­war SS and sub­si­dized by the Ger­man gov­ern­ment. This gam­bit was a man­i­fes­ta­tion of“volks­grup­pen­rechte” or “the rights of native peo­ples,” dis­cussed in FTRs 615616,

Jabotin­sky, writ­ing in the Ital­ian Zion­ist paper, indi­cated that the alliance was one of ide­ol­ogy, not of con­ve­nience and expe­di­ency. Ben­jamin Netanyahu’s father Ben­zion Netanyahu, was the per­sonal sec­re­tary for Jabotin­sky. The elder Netanyahu was also a pall­bearer at Jabotinsky’s funeral. Men­achem Begin had been a mem­ber of the Betar. Another Israeli Prime Minister–Yitzhak Shamir–belonged to the Stern Gang.

The Israeli right-wing has con­tin­ued its inter­face with Euro­pean Nazis and fascists.

The Romney/Netanyahu axis, in addi­tion to pre­sent­ing a dis­tort­ing ele­ment to Obama’s mid­dle east pol­icy, could con­ceiv­ably man­i­fest as some sort of Octo­ber Sur­prise gam­bit vis a vis Iran.

“A Friend­ship Nur­tured in 1976 Res­onates in 2012″ by Michael Bar­baro; The New York Times; 4/8/2012.

. . . . That shared expe­ri­ence decades ago led to a warm friend­ship, lit­tle known to out­siders, that is now rich with polit­i­cal intrigue. Mr. Netanyahu, the prime min­is­ter of Israel, is mak­ing the case for mil­i­tary action against Iran as Mr. Rom­ney, the likely Repub­li­can pres­i­den­tial nom­i­nee, is attack­ing the Obama admin­is­tra­tion for not sup­port­ing Mr. Netanyahu more robustly.

The rela­tion­ship between Mr. Netanyahu and Mr. Rom­ney — nur­tured over meals in Boston, New York and Jerusalem, strength­ened by a net­work of mutual friends and height­ened by their con­ser­v­a­tive ide­olo­gies — has resulted in an unusu­ally frank exchange of advice and insights on top­ics like pol­i­tics, eco­nom­ics and the Mid­dle East.

When Mr. Rom­ney was the gov­er­nor of Mass­a­chu­setts, Mr. Netanyahu offered him first­hand point­ers on how to shrink the size of gov­ern­ment. When Mr. Netanyahu wanted to encour­age pen­sion funds to divest from busi­nesses tied to Iran, Mr. Rom­ney coun­seled him on which Amer­i­can offi­cials to meet with. And when Mr. Rom­ney first ran for pres­i­dent, Mr. Netanyahu pre­sciently asked him whether he thought Newt Gin­grich would ever jump into the race.

Only a few weeks ago, on Super Tues­day, Mr. Netanyahu deliv­ered a per­sonal brief­ing by tele­phone to Mr. Rom­ney about the sit­u­a­tion in Iran. . . .

  1. Paul’s ver­sion of free­dom is encap­su­lated in Ana­tole France’s obser­va­tion that “The law, in its majes­tic equal­ity, for­bids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread”. His sim­plis­tic lib­er­tar­i­an­ism is an apoth­e­o­sis of the wealthy and dif­fers from Nazi ide­ol­ogy in no impor­tant aspect. What can pro­gres­sives be thinking?

  3. @Dwight: I totally agree with the apoth­e­o­sis part but I’m afraid the Ana­tole France quote doesn’t seem to be at all accu­rate.
    I’d describe it more like this, if I may: The rich, being the supe­rior class they sup­pos­edly are, in the cor­po­ratist view, will have free reign to do pretty much what­ever they please, while the poor and mid­dle class are stuck in a dog-eat-dog exis­tence where they are not only forced to beg and steal to sur­vive, but per­haps even per­se­cuted when they do man­age to move up!

    Per­haps I may be mis­un­der­stand­ing the orig­i­nal con­text of the quote and if any­one has a cor­rec­tion to make, you are more than wel­come to do so. =)

    Again, Dwight, just to reit­er­ate, I whole­heart­edly agree with this sen­ti­ment of RP glo­ri­fy­ing the wealthy, as all the evi­dence I’ve seen is that he is indeed a pro-corporatist fringe faux-libertarian that many peo­ple have come to view him as.

    And the real tragic thing is is that he has man­aged to present him­self in a man­ner that does still endear him to some of the more cen­trist lean­ing social pro­gres­sives, par­tic­u­larly the hijack­ing of the pro-cannabis movement(which the Estab­lish­ment com­pletely despises, btw. Same rea­son they tried to destroy the youth move­ment in the ‘60s).

    How­ever, though, I also see that more peo­ple are begin­ning to ask ques­tions, most notably, why he seems to be asso­ci­ated with Holo­caust deniers & other fringe-right ass­holes and dickheads(like Mr. Duke for instance), so there is some hope, and frankly, RP’s chance for any major suc­cess in dent­ing the Democ­rats’ vot­ing ranks was in ’08 and he failed mis­er­ably.
    With more and more peo­ple get­ting pissed off at the GOP and lib­er­als start­ing to come together, if RP is going to be manip­u­lated by the Crim­i­nal Estab­lish­ment as Nader was, it’s likely they’ll fall flat.

  4. How­ever, though, there’s a pos­si­bil­ity that things may go in the other direc­tion as well. It is only April, after all, and there’s another 7 months until the elec­tion. Not a bad idea to keep our eyes open, IMHO. =)

  5. Dave: Your Aryan Nations show (part four) men­tions a Ronald Paul hav­ing knowl­edge of and sup­port­ing the failed Dominica coup of 1981. Michael Per­due says that he and the infa­mous John Con­nally gave it the thumbs up. Can I assume this is the same fella?

  6. @Brad: Hello, Brad! Per­son­ally, I now find myself ask­ing the same ques­tion. It’s been a long time since I’ve lis­tened to that par­tic­u­lar show but I’m gonna go back to it some­time and see if I can put some pieces together. Who knows? Maybe ol’ Ronny was con­nected to the Dominica inci­dent as well.

  7. @Brad–

    Yes, it is the same Ron Paul. Note that he is joined at the hip with Romney.

    Best,

    Rom­ney Woos Sen­a­tor Paul
    By Robert Costa
    May 24, 2012 8:45 P.M.

    Sources close to Sen­a­tor Rand Paul tell National Review Online that Paul and Mitt Rom­ney had a pri­vate meet­ing on Wednes­day. Details of the top­ics dis­cussed are hazy, but Paul — the son of Texas con­gress­man (and pres­i­den­tial can­di­date) Ron Paul — report­edly found the meet­ing productive.

    The one-on-one con­ver­sa­tion in the nation’s cap­i­tal lasted 30 min­utes. Sources say the tone was cor­dial but it wasn’t meant to be an exchange of pleas­antries. The Ken­tucky Repub­li­can focused his ques­tions on policy.
