Snowden’s Ride, Part 8: Papa Snowden and The Paulistinian Libertarian Organization


Dave Emory’s entire life­time of work is avail­able on a flash dri­ve that can be obtained here. [1] (The flash dri­ve includes the anti-fas­cist books avail­able on this site.)

COMMENT: We’ve cov­ered Eddie “The Friend­ly Spook” Snow­den’s exploits in numer­ous pre­vi­ous posts: Part I [2]Part II [3]Part III [4]Part IV [5]Part V [6]Part VI [7]Part VII [8], Part VIII [9]Part IX [10]Part X [11], Part XI [12], Part XII [13]Part XIII [14], Part XIV [15]. Users of this web­site are emphat­i­cal­ly encour­aged to exam­ine these posts in detail, as it is impos­si­ble to do jus­tice to the argu­ments in those arti­cles in the scope of this post.

Suf­fice it to say, for our pur­pos­es here, that Snow­den’s activ­i­ties are–quite obviously–an intel­li­gence oper­a­tion direct­ed at Barack Oba­ma’s admin­is­tra­tion at one lev­el and the Unit­ed States and U.K. at anoth­er.

We note that the indi­vid­u­als and insti­tu­tions involved with Snow­den, as well as Fast Eddie him­self, track back to the far right, Nazi, white suprema­cists, Holo­caust deniers and ele­ments and indi­vid­u­als involved with the Under­ground Reich. [16] Again, PLEASE exam­ine the pre­vi­ous posts on the sub­ject, as there is no way to flesh out this line of inquiry in this post. 

We will be post­ing a sum­ma­ry analy­sis of Fast Eddie’s “op” to aid with sort­ing out and clar­i­fy­ing this long, com­pli­cat­ed and tor­tu­ous pre­sen­ta­tion.

In this post, we update the gath­er­ing domes­tic fas­cist pha­lanx mus­ter­ing on behalf of Eddie the Friend­ly Spook and, in turn, posi­tion­ing to hand the 2014 and 2016 elec­tions to the Naz­i­fied GOP [17]Expect to see L’Af­faire Snow­den play into the Repub­li­can theme of Obama/Democrats as spon­sors of “big gov­ern­ment” etc., etc.

Although a con­gres­sion­al coali­tion of so-called pro­gres­sives and right-wingers is gath­er­ing to take mea­sures to “rein-in” NSA vac­u­um clean­ing oper­a­tions, the gen­e­sis, sub­stance and intent of this “op” is unde­ni­ably and com­plete­ly fas­cist.

It is only too typ­i­cal of the so-called “pro­gres­sive” sec­tor to ally them­selves with those who intend their destruc­tion. We will dis­cuss this more in our sum­ma­ry analy­sis of this oper­a­tion.

Chron­i­cling the fas­cists, white suprema­cists, Nazis and Under­ground Reich forces to which the ele­ments in our analy­sis track back, we not­ed that Snow­den’s Pres­i­den­tial can­di­date of choice was cryp­to-Nazi Ron Paul [18]. Paul’s super PAC was cap­i­tal­ized by appar­ent Under­ground Reich oper­a­tive Peter Thiel, whose Palan­tir firm devel­oped the PRISM soft­ware.

NOTE: Palan­tir offi­cial­ly claims that “their PRISM” is NOT the same PRISM in the focal point of the Snowden/NSA imbroglio. We feel this claim is laugh­able, frankly. The notion that the intel­li­gence ser­vices are using TWO counter-ter­ror soft­ware pro­grams with iden­ti­cal names is not cred­i­ble. Had a com­pa­ny devel­oped a counter-ter­ror soft­ware pro­gram for use by the intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty and called it “PRISM,” there would have been lit­i­ga­tion. The major tech com­pa­nies are NOTHING if not liti­gious, and Thiel and com­pa­ny have PLENTY of mon­ey!

Recent­ly, Snow­den’s father Lon has joined the fray, join­ing forces with ele­ments asso­ci­at­ed with both Ron Paul and his son, Rand–a bird of the same feath­er as his Nazi father.

The polit­i­cal front tak­ing shape against Oba­ma at one lev­el, and U.S. inter­net and media busi­ness at anoth­er, is inex­tri­ca­bly linked with the Nazi/fascist milieu of Ron Paul. Con­sid­er the fol­low­ing:

“Edward Snow­den Bet­ter off in Rus­sia than US, His Father Says” [AP]; The Guardian; 7/26/2013. [27]

EXCERPT: The father of the Nation­al Secu­ri­ty Agency whistle­blow­er Edward Snow­den says his son has been so vil­i­fied by the Oba­ma admin­is­tra­tion and mem­bers of Con­gress that he is now bet­ter off stay­ing in Rus­sia.

Lon Snow­den had been work­ing behind the scenes with lawyers to try to find a way his son could get a fair tri­al in the US. Edward Snow­den has been charged in fed­er­al court with vio­lat­ing the Espi­onage Act by leak­ing details of NSA sur­veil­lance. . . .

. . . . Lon Snow­den and his lawyer, Bruce Fein, released a let­ter on Fri­day ask­ing Oba­ma to dis­miss the crim­i­nal charges against Edward Snow­den and to sup­port leg­is­la­tion “to rem­e­dy the NSA sur­veil­lance abus­es he revealed”. . . .

. . . . Lon Snow­den and Fein are start­ing a non­profit group called the Defense of the Con­sti­tu­tion Foun­da­tion to pro­mote the issues his son has raised. . . .

EXCERPT: Attor­neys Alan P. Dye and Bruce Fein of Wash­ing­ton, D.C. have joined Con­gress­man Ron Paul’s 2008

“Ron Paul’s Chief Attor­ney Bruce Fein & His Clients” by Sibel Edmonds; Boil­ing Frogs Blogspot; 9/8/2011. [30]

EXCERPT: Last month, on August 23, Bruce Fein became Ron Paul’s Chief Legal Advi­sor. In oth­er words, Ron Paul became Bruce Fein’s Client. . . .

“Snow­den Lawyer Close to Sen­a­tor Rand Paul’s Office” by Cliff Kin­caid; Cana­da Free Press; 7/2/2013. [31]

EXCERPT: In a curi­ous devel­op­ment, NSA trai­tor Edward Snowden’s father is being rep­re­sent­ed by attor­ney Bruce Fein, who appeared with Sen­a­tor Rand Paul at his anti-NSA news con­fer­ence on June 13. Fein says “some­one in Sen­a­tor [Rand] Paul’s office” rec­om­mend­ed him to Edward Snowden’s father, Lon­nie. . . .

. . . . .But his involve­ment in the Snow­den case isn’t the only con­tro­ver­sial aspect of Fein’s recent career moves. A well-respect­ed con­sti­tu­tion­al lawyer whose books include Amer­i­can Empire: Before the Fall, Fein has appeared at two con­fer­ences this year spon­sored by the Schiller Insti­tute, a group start­ed by polit­i­cal extrem­ist and con­vict­ed felon Lyn­don LaRouche. . . .

“Leak­er’s Father and Lawyer Plan­ning Vis­its to Rus­sia” by Bri­an Knowl­ton; The New York Times; 8/12/2013. [29]

EXCERPT: Edward J. Snowden’s father and the family’s lawyer said Sun­day that they had obtained visas to vis­it the for­mer intel­li­gence con­trac­tor in Rus­sia and indi­cat­ed that they would encour­age him to return to the Unit­ed States to face fed­er­al charges for reveal­ing secret Amer­i­can sur­veil­lance pro­grams to jour­nal­ists, but only if accept­able tri­al con­di­tions could be nego­ti­at­ed.

“What I would like,” said Lon Snow­den, the father, “is for this to be vet­ted in open court, for the Amer­i­can peo­ple to have all the facts.” He said he favored his son’s return if a fair tri­al was assured. As for a pos­si­ble plea deal, he said, “I’m not open to it, and that’s what I’ll share with my son.”

Appear­ing on the ABC News pro­gram “This Week,” Lon Snow­den and the family’s lawyer, Bruce Fein, declined to say when they would vis­it, to avoid what Mr. Fein called a news media “fren­zy,” but they said it would be soon.

In a crim­i­nal com­plaint filed in June, fed­er­al pros­e­cu­tors charged Edward Snow­den with theft, “unau­tho­rized com­mu­ni­ca­tion of nation­al defense infor­ma­tion” and will­ful­ly dis­clos­ing clas­si­fied com­mu­ni­ca­tions intel­li­gence “to an unau­tho­rized per­son.” The sec­ond and third charge were brought under the Espi­onage Act of 1917.

“We intend to vis­it with Edward and sug­gest crim­i­nal defense attor­neys who’ve got expe­ri­ence in Espi­onage Act pros­e­cu­tions,” said Mr. Fein, a well-known Wash­ing­ton lawyer who spe­cial­izes in con­sti­tu­tion­al and inter­na­tion­al law. Such lawyers, he added, are uncom­mon, since pros­e­cu­tions under the Espi­onage Act have been rare his­tor­i­cal­ly.

Mr. Fein not­ed that he has laid out his con­cerns about a poten­tial tri­al, includ­ing its venue, in a let­ter to Attor­ney Gen­er­al Eric H. Hold­er Jr., but he insist­ed that the terms he dis­cussed were not “ulti­ma­tums” but rather nego­ti­at­ing points. . . .

“Rand Paul: Youth with Me on NSA Issue” by: Jessie Markel; campaignforliberty.org; 6/24/2013. [19]

EXCERPT: Last week, Ken­tucky Sen­a­tor Rand Paul said, “I think as we have a fuller debate on these dis­cus­sions you’re going to find that not only Repub­li­cans are with me on this issue, the youth are.” As a for­mer Young Amer­i­cans for Lib­er­ty Chair­man for the State of Flori­da, I know that Rand Paul is 100% cor­rect.

The youth in this coun­try have an appre­ci­a­tion for pri­va­cy, espe­cial­ly Inter­net pri­va­cy, which the “nation­al secu­ri­ty over pri­va­cy” advo­cates don’t seem to under­stand. Young peo­ple are skep­tics as to just how much safer going through our Inter­net search­es of cats in fun­ny hats and our Insta­gram pic­tures of food are mak­ing us. In a gen­er­a­tion where every­thing is shared, young peo­ple cer­tain­ly do not want the NSA read­ing their posts crit­i­cal of Oba­maCare and arm­ing the Syr­i­an “rebels.”

In a recent CNN/ORC Inter­na­tion­al Poll, 61% of respon­dents said they dis­ap­prove of the way Barack Oba­ma is han­dling gov­ern­ment sur­veil­lance of U.S. cit­i­zens (only 52% dis­ap­proved of Pres­i­dent Bush in 2006, for com­par­i­son). If the poll had bro­ken down into age groups, it’s like­ly the youth would have respond­ed most neg­a­tive­ly. . . .

 “Neo-Con­fed­er­ate Rand Paul Aide A Dai­ly Caller Con­trib­u­tor, Fox Reg­u­lar” by Ben Dimeiro & Eric Hanano­ki; Media­Mat­ters; 7/9/2013. [23]

EXCERPT: Jack Hunter, a con­gres­sional aide to Sen. Rand Paul with a his­tory of “neo-Con­fed­er­ate” and “pro-seces­sion­ist” views, has pro­duced dozens of arti­cles and video com­men­taries for The Dai­ly Caller and appeared as what one Fox Busi­ness host termed a “reg­u­lar” guest on that net­work. He also helped then-Sen. Jim DeMint (R‑SC), cur­rently the pres­i­dent of The Her­itage Foun­da­tion, write his most recent book.

The con­ser­v­a­tive Free Bea­con report­ed today that Hunter, a “close” Rand Paul aide who also co-wrote the Ken­tucky Republican’s 2011 book, “spent years work­ing as a pro-seces­sion­ist radio pun­dit and neo-Con­fed­er­ate activist ... Hunter was a chair­man in the League of the South, which ‘advo­cates the seces­sion and sub­se­quent inde­pen­dence of the South­ern States from this forced union and the for­ma­tion of a South­ern repub­lic.’” . . . .

“Rand Paul staffer Expressed Sup­port for Lin­coln Assas­sin” by James R. Car­roll and Joseph Gerth [The (Louisville, Ky.) Couri­er-Jour­nal]; USA Today;  7/9/2013. [26]

EXCERPT: . . . . Hunter still main­tains a web­site, http://www.southernavenger.com [40], where he says he was the offi­cial blog­ger for the 2012 pres­i­den­tial cam­paign of for­mer Rep. Ron Paul, R‑Texas, the father of the sen­a­tor from Ken­tucky.  .  .  .

“Bruce Fein & Turkey”; lukery.blogspot.com; 5/2/2009. [32]

EXCERPT: . . . . . Fein has anoth­er com­pa­ny called Bruce Fein & Asso­ciates, locat­ed at 1025 Con­necti­cut Avenue, N.W., Suite 1000. Wash­ing­ton, D.C.. 20036, which inci­den­tal­ly shares that address with the Turk­ish Amer­i­can Legal Defense Fund — TALDF, where Bruce Fein is the main con­tact. A bunch of sim­i­lar astro-trurf groups — includ­ing the Turk­ish Coali­tion of Amer­i­ca, TCA — share the same address. Bruce Fein is ‘res­i­dent schol­ar’ at the Turk­ish Coali­tion of Amer­i­ca. Fein’s Huff­in­g­ton Post bio also notes that he was pre­vi­ous­ly ‘res­i­dent schol­ar’ at ATAA. Accord­ing to Sibel Edmonds, the ATAA con­ducts “the dirty activ­i­ties” of the Turkey/Israeli lob­by — includ­ing deliv­er­ing bribes and oth­er forms of black­mail to con­gress­men like Hastert, Roy Blunt, Tom Lan­tos, Dan Bur­ton and oth­ers. Phil Giral­di sim­i­lar­ly fin­gers ATAA here.

Fein’s Huff­in­g­ton Post bio also notes that he has been “a con­sul­tant to the Turk­ish Repub­lic of North­ern Cyprus.” Isn’t that odd. Just last month I not­ed that the Turk­ish Repub­lic of North­ern Cyprus (TRNC) was at the heart of Sibel’s mon­ey laun­der­ing claims ‑and that the TRNC was also at the heart of mon­ey laun­der­ing oper­a­tions for Cen­tral Asian dic­ta­tors, ter­ror­ists like Osama Bin Laden, and “US gov­ern­ment agen­cies,” “cer­tain US gov­ern­ment peo­ple,” “cer­tain non-prof­it orga­ni­za­tions in the US,” “cer­tain US insti­tu­tions includ­ing bank­ing insti­tu­tions,” and “cer­tain US-based orga­ni­za­tions.”

So, yeah, Bruce Fein is a ‘res­i­dent schol­ar’ at the Turk­ish Coali­tion of Amer­i­ca, which, as Miz­gin notes, “is close­ly linked to the Deep State and has cre­at­ed and found­ed an “aca­d­e­m­ic” pro­gram to offi­cial­ly deny the Armen­ian geno­cide.” . . . .

“Julian Assange: I’m A ‘Big Admir­er’ Of Ron Paul, Rand Paul” by Nick Wing; The Huff­in­g­ton Post; 8/16/2013. [35]

EXCERPT: Wik­iLeaks founder Julian Assange gave a strong endorse­ment to the lib­er­tar­i­an wing of the GOP on Thurs­day, prais­ing Sen. Rand Paul (R‑Ky.) and his father, for­mer Rep. Ron Paul (R‑Texas), for their polit­i­cal views.

“[I] am a big admir­er of Ron Paul and Rand Paul for their very prin­ci­pled posi­tions in the U.S. Con­gress on a num­ber of issues,” Assange said dur­ing a forum host­ed by Cam­pus Reform and trans­paren­cy orga­ni­za­tion OurSay.org. “They have been the strongest sup­port­ers of the fight against the U.S. attack on Wik­iLeaks and on me in the U.S. Con­gress.

Sim­i­lar­ly, they have been the strongest oppo­nents of drone war­fare and extra­ju­di­cial exe­cu­tions.”
Assange went on to com­mend the lib­er­tar­i­an ide­al of “non-vio­lence” with regards to mil­i­tary engage­ments, the draft and tax col­lec­tion. He then put forth an argu­ment against both estab­lished polit­i­cal par­ties in Wash­ing­ton, claim­ing that near­ly all Democ­rats had been “co-opt­ed” by Pres­i­dent Barack Oba­ma’s admin­is­tra­tion, while Repub­li­cans were almost entire­ly “in bed with the war indus­try.”

The cur­rent lib­er­tar­i­an strain of polit­i­cal thought in the Repub­li­can Par­ty was the “the only hope” for Amer­i­can elec­toral pol­i­tics, Assange con­clud­ed. . . .

“Ron Paul to Speak at Holo­caust Denier’s ‘Gala Din­ner Fundrais­er’” by Bruce Wil­son; Huff­in­g­ton Post; 9/06/2013. [37]

EXCERPT: In a heat­ed Sep­tem­ber 5th inter­view with MSNBC’s Alex Wag­ner, For­mer U.S. Con­gress­man Ron Paul, who is cur­rently surf­ing a wave of main­stream media appear­ances due to his strong crit­i­cism of the push from the Oba­ma Admin­is­tra­tion for U.S. mil­i­tary inter­ven­tion in Syr­ia, defend­ed his planned Sep­tem­ber 11th, 2013 keynote address at a “gala din­ner fundrais­er” to be held dur­ing a con­tro­ver­sial [also see 1, 2] con­fer­ence orga­nized by a fringe, schis­matic Catholic orga­ni­za­tion accused of vir­u­lent anti-Semi­tism, the Fati­ma Cen­ter.

Accord­ing to a new report, Ron Paul’s asso­ci­a­tion with Fati­ma Cen­ter lead­ers, includ­ing Fati­ma Cen­ter head Father Nicholas Gruner — who has espoused Holo­caust denial, traces back at least as far as 1998.

Dur­ing the Sep­tem­ber 5th inter­view, MSNBC’s Wag­ner con­fronted Paul with the fact that the Fati­ma Cen­ter has been called a “hard-core anti-Semi­te group” and has in the past pub­lished writ­ing sug­gest­ing that Jews should be stripped of cer­tain civ­il rights — a sug­ges­tion also once made by one of the speak­ers, Father Paul Leonard Kramer, who will join Ron Paul at the upcom­ing Fati­ma Cen­ter “Path To Peace” con­fer­ence to be held Sep­tem­ber 8th to 13th in Nia­gara Falls, Ontario.

For­mer Con­gress­man Paul respond­ed to MSNBC cor­re­spon­dent Wagner’s chal­lenge by flat­ly refus­ing to recon­sider his planned appear­ance at the Fati­ma Cen­ter con­fer­ence and by accus­ing Wag­ner of “Catholic bash­ing.”

Also join­ing For­mer Con­gress­man Ron Paul (R‑TX) at the event will be speak­ers who have pro­moted Holo­caust denial and por­trayed glob­al warm­ing as a hoax that will be used to jus­tify a Jew­ish and Israeli-led geno­cide of most of the Earth’s pop­u­la­tion, and who reject the long-estab­lished sci­en­tific fact that the Earth orbits the Sun.

Fati­ma Cen­ter head Father Nicholas Gruner, and oth­er top lead­ers asso­ci­ated with the cen­ter, have for over two decades pro­moted claims that a glob­al con­spir­acy of wealthy “apos­tate Jews” and Freema­sons — who are alleged to have financed Hitler and the Nazis and hold a “Hitler-like doc­trine of exter­mi­nat­ing the gen­tile races and repop­u­lat­ing the Earth with their own kind” — is plot­ting to insti­tute a “New World Order” glob­al gov­ern­ment under the com­mand of the anti-Christ.

The South­ern Pover­ty Law Cen­ter, which tracks far-right, racist and anti-Semit­ic groups, iden­ti­fies the Fati­ma Cen­ter as part of the “‘rad­i­cal tra­di­tion­al­ist Catholic’ move­ment, [which is] per­haps the sin­gle largest group of hard-core anti-Semi­tes in North Amer­i­ca.” . . . .

“Top 10 Racist Ron Paul Friends, Sup­port­ers” by Casey Gane-McCalla”; News One; 12/27/2011. [38]

EXCERPT: . . . . 10. Willis Car­to

Willis Car­to is a holo­caust denier, Hitler admir­er and a white suprema­cist. A for­mer cam­paign­er for seg­re­ga­tion­ist can­di­date George Wal­lace, Car­to found­ed the Nation­al Alliance with William Pierce, the author of the “Turn­er Diaries,” which is cred­it­ed for inspir­ing Tim­o­thy McVeigh. Car­to found­ed the Pop­ulist Par­ty in 1984 and ran David Duke as a pres­i­den­tial can­di­date. Car­to also found­ed the Amer­i­can Free Press, which is labeled as a hate group by the South­ern Pover­ty Law Cen­ter (SPLC), where Paul’s col­umn runs. Paul has not sued Car­to for run­ning his col­umn or explained how it wound up in a white suprema­cist pub­li­ca­tion. The New York Times writes that Paul used the sub­scrip­tion list to a white suprema­cist pub­li­ca­tion of Carto’s to solic­it dona­tions. . . .
. . . . 8. Don Black

Don Black is a for­mer Grand Wiz­ard of the Ku Klux Klan, a cur­rent mem­ber of the Amer­i­can Nazi Par­ty, and the own­er and oper­a­tor of the white suprema­cist site Storm­front. Black reg­u­lar­ly orga­nizes “mon­ey bombs” for Ron and Rand Paul and has even tak­en a pic­ture with Ron Paul, who refused to return dona­tions from Black and Storm­front even with the polit­i­cal tra­di­tion of not accept­ing dona­tions from peo­ple who seem unfit. Black, who was sen­tenced to three years in jail for try­ing to over­throw the Caribbean coun­try of Domini­ca in 1981, sup­ports Paul through his Twit­ter account and on mes­sage boards for Storm­front.

Black told the New York Times that it was Paul’s newslet­ters that inspired him to be a sup­port­er:
That was a big part of his con­stituen­cy, the pale­o­con­ser­v­a­tives who think there are race prob­lems in this coun­try.

7. Lew Rock­well
Lew Rock­well is a close friend and advis­er of Paul’s who served as his con­gres­sion­al chief of staff between 1978 and 1982, worked as a paid con­sul­tant for Paul for more than 20 years, and was an edi­tor and alleged ghost writer for his racist newslet­ters. Rock­well formed the Lud­wig Von Mis­es Insti­tute, which Paul still has a close work­ing rela­tion­ship with.

The Lud­wig Von Mis­es Insti­tute is list­ed by the SPLC as a neo-Con­fed­er­ate orga­ni­za­tion. They also add that Rock­well said that the Civ­il War “trans­formed the Amer­i­can regime from a fed­er­al­ist sys­tem based on free­dom to a cen­tral­ized state that cir­cum­scribed lib­er­ty in the name of pub­lic order” and that the Civ­il Rights Move­ment was the “invol­un­tary servi­tude” of (pre­sum­ably white) busi­ness own­ers. Rock­well was list­ed as one of the racist League of the South’s found­ing mem­bers but denies mem­ber­ship. Rock­well reg­u­lar­ly posts arti­cles on his web­site, attack­ing a New World Order con­spir­a­cy.

6. David Duke
David Duke is a for­mer Grand Wiz­ard of the Ku Klux Klan and can­di­date for Gov­er­nor of Louisiana. Duke is also a New World Order con­spir­a­cy the­o­rist who believes that Jews con­trol the Fed­er­al Reserve. On his web­site, Duke proud­ly boasts about the endorse­ments and kind words that Paul gave him in his newslet­ters and in turn endors­es Paul for pres­i­dent:

Duke’s plat­form called for tax cuts, no quo­tas, no affir­ma­tive action, no wel­fare, and no bus­ing…
To many vot­ers, this seems like just plain good sense. Duke car­ried bag­gage from his past, the vot­ers were will­ing to over­look that. If he had been afford­ed the for­give­ness an ex-com­mu­nist gets, he might have won.

…David Broder, also of the Post and equal­ly lib­er­al, writ­ing on an entire­ly dif­fer­ent sub­ject, had it right: ‘No one wants to talk about race pub­licly, but if you ask any cam­paign con­sul­tant or poll­ster pri­vate­ly, the sad real­i­ty that a great many work­ing-class and mid­dle class white Amer­i­cans are far less hos­tile to the rich and their tax breaks than they are to the poor and minori­ties with their wel­fare and affir­ma­tive action pro­grams.”

Lib­er­als are noto­ri­ous­ly blind to the soci­o­log­i­cal effects of their own pro­grams. David Duke was hurt by his past. How many more Dukes are wait­ing in the wings with­out such a taint?

“Duke lost the elec­tion,” it said, “but he scared the blazes out of the Estab­lish­ment.” In 1991, a newslet­ter asked, “Is David Duke’s new promi­nence, despite his los­ing the guber­na­to­r­i­al elec­tion, good for anti-big gov­ern­ment forces?” The con­clu­sion was that “our pri­or­i­ty should be to take the anti-gov­ern­ment, anti-tax, anti-crime, anti-wel­fare loafers, anti-race priv­i­lege, anti-for­eign med­dling mes­sage of Duke, and enclose it in a more con­sis­tent pack­age of free­dom.”

Duke also gave advice to Paul on his web­site, say­ing:

What must Paul do to have any real chance of win­ning or mak­ing a big­ger impact? I think he should do exact­ly what I did in Louisiana, and for Ron Paul to fol­low exact­ly the same advice Ron Paul gave in his newslet­ters for oth­ers, take up my cam­paign issues with pas­sion and pur­pose.

Could it be that Paul is tak­ing Duke’s advice by hid­ing the racist “bag­gage from his past” in a more con­sis­tent pack­age of “free­dom?”

5. Thomas DiLoren­zo
Thomas DiLoren­zo is anoth­er neo-Con­fed­er­ate who believes the South was right in the the civ­il war and that Abra­ham Lin­coln was a wicked man who destroyed states’ rights. DiLoren­zo is list­ed as an affil­i­at­ed schol­ar with the racist League of the South, which pro­motes seg­re­ga­tion and a new south­ern seces­sion. Paul invit­ed DiLoren­zo to tes­ti­fy before con­gress about the Fed­er­al Reserve and is close friends with Paul and works for the Lud­wig Von Mis­es Instiute. Paul cit­ed DiLorezno’s book when telling Tim Russert that the North should not have fought the Civ­il War.

4. James Von Brunn
James Von Brunn was a white suprema­cist and anti-Semi­te who opened fired at the Holo­caust muse­um, killing an African-Amer­i­can secu­ri­ty guard. Von Brunn was an avid Paul sup­port­er who post­ed a mes­sage on the Ron Paul Yahoo Group, say­ing, “HITLER’S WORST MISTAKE: HE DIDN’T GAS THE JEWS.” In 1983, Von Brunn was con­vict­ed of kid­nap­ping mem­bers of the Fed­er­al Reserve Board, a com­mon tar­get of Paul’s, and was sen­tenced to six years in prison.Von Brunn died while await­ing sen­tenc­ing for his crime.

3. William Alexan­der “Bill” White
Bill White is a neo-Nazi who is a for­mer mem­ber of of the neo-Nazi group the Nation­al Social­ist Move­ment and founder of his own Nazi group, the Nation­al Social­ist Worker’s Move­ment. He has called for the lynch­ing of the Jena 6 and the assas­si­na­tion of NAACP lead­ers. White pre­vi­ous­ly cam­paigned for Pat Buchanan and the Reform par­ty. This year, White was con­vict­ed of threat­en­ing a juror but then freed by a judge who called the threats free speech. White is a for­mer Ron Paul sup­port­er who became dis­en­fran­chised with Paul, when a Paul spokesman called white suprema­cy “a small ide­ol­o­gy.” Here is what White wrote about Paul on a pop­u­lar white suprema­cist web­site:

I have kept qui­et about the Ron Paul cam­paign for a while, because I didn’t see any need to say any­thing that would cause any trou­ble. How­ev­er, read­ing the lat­est release from his cam­paign spokesman, I am com­pelled to tell the truth about Ron Paul’s exten­sive involve­ment in white nation­al­ism.

Both Con­gress­man Paul and his aides reg­u­lar­ly meet with mem­bers of the Storm­front set, Amer­i­can Renais­sance, the Insti­tute for His­toric Review, and oth­ers at the Tara Thai restau­rant in Arling­ton, Vir­ginia, usu­al­ly on Wednes­days. This is part of a din­ner that was orig­i­nal­ly orga­nized by Pat Buchanan, Sam Fran­cis and Joe Sobran, and has since been most­ly tak­en over by the Coun­cil of Con­ser­v­a­tive Cit­i­zens.

I have attend­ed these din­ners, seen Paul and his aides there, and been invit­ed to his offices in Wash­ing­ton to dis­cuss pol­i­cy.

For his spokesman to call white racial­ism a “small ide­ol­o­gy” and claim white activists are “wast­ing their mon­ey” try­ing to influ­ence Paul is ridicu­lous. Paul is a white nation­al­ist of the Storm­front type who has always kept his racial views and his views about world Judaism qui­et because of his polit­i­cal posi­tion.

I don’t know that it is nec­es­sar­i­ly good for Paul to “expose” this. How­ev­er, he real­ly is some­one with exten­sive ties to white nation­al­ism and for him to deny that in the belief he will be more respectable by deny­ing it is out­ra­geous – and I hate see­ing peo­ple in the press who denounce racial­ism mere­ly because they think it is not fash­ion­able

Ron Paul has not sued White for libel, which would be in his rights to do if White’s statement’s were lies. White is out of jail and has not lost cred­i­bil­i­ty in the white suprema­cist world, writ­ing for the neo-Nazi web­site the Amer­i­can Free Press and the same paper that used to car­ry Paul’s col­umn.

2. Richard Poplaws­ki
Richard Poplaws­ki is a neo-Nazi from Pitts­burgh who reg­u­lar­ly post­ed on the neo-Nazi web­site Storm­front. Poplaws­ki would post videos of Ron Paul talk­ing about FEMA camp con­spir­a­cy the­o­ries with Glenn Beck.

Polaws­ki was afraid of a gov­ern­ment con­spir­a­cy to take away people’s guns and wound up killing three police offi­cers who came to his house after his moth­er made a domes­tic dis­pute call. . . .

“Lud­wig von Mis­es Insti­tute”; Wikipedia. [39]

EXCERPT: . . . . The Insti­tute is crit­i­cal of democ­ra­cy, which authors in Mis­es Insti­tute pub­li­ca­tions have called coercive,[22] incom­pat­i­ble with wealth creation,[23] replete with inner contradictions,[24] and a sys­tem of legal­ized graft. . . .

. . . . Insti­tute schol­ars have con­demned Abra­ham Lin­col­n’s con­duct of the Amer­i­can Civ­il War (e.g. sus­pend­ing habeas cor­pus), assert­ing that his poli­cies con­tributed to the growth of sta­tism in the Unit­ed States. Senior fac­ul­ty mem­ber Thomas DiLoren­zo, in his crit­i­cal biogra­phies The Real Lin­coln and Lin­coln: Unmasked, argues that the six­teenth pres­i­dent sub­stan­tial­ly expand­ed the size and pow­ers of the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment at the expense of indi­vid­ual lib­er­ty. Adjunct fac­ul­ty mem­ber Don­ald Liv­ingston shares a sim­i­lar view, blam­ing Lin­coln for the cre­ation of “a French Rev­o­lu­tion­ary style uni­tary state” and “cen­tral­iz­ing totalitarianism.”[28]

LvMI’s Thomas DiLoren­zo’s ref­er­ences to the Amer­i­can Civ­il War as the “War to pre­vent South­ern Inde­pen­dence” and Mis­es fac­ul­ty mem­ber Thomas Wood­s’s pres­ence at the found­ing of the League of the South were cit­ed by James Kirchick, writ­ing for the New Repub­lic, as sug­gest­ing a “dis­turb­ing attach­ment to the Confederacy.”[29] Woods has stat­ed that he was present at the meet­ing at which the orga­ni­za­tion was founded,[30] and lat­er con­tributed to its newsletter,[31] . . .
