Neocons Target Ron Paul After CPAC Poll Win

by Paul's Anti-War Stance Called "Traitorou Tuesday, Feb. 15, 2011 at 4:53 PM

Following accusations by Ron Paul's supporters of Cheney being "war criminal" at the recent CPAC conference, neocon warmongers have started a campaign against Ron Paul for his non-interventionist and anti-military occupation positions, labeling him a "traitor" to the people. However, the facts show that Cheney and GW Bush are the real traitors, who authroized use of torture and deceit to engage the U.S. military in two illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan

February 14, 2011

Establishment Republicans exploited a gullible Tea Party movement in order to get the neocon agenda of forever war against manufactured Muslim enemies back on track. Now they must purge Congress and the mainstream political landscape of those who would resist this agenda.

The primary target of the effort is Rep. Ron Paul.



Ron Paul on U.S. foreign policy.

Paul has stood tall against the neocon version of U.S. foreign policy. He is an ardent opponent of the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan.

Once again, Ron Paul has won the CPAC presidential straw poll. Millions of Americans support Paul’s call for a return to a constitutional government and a non-interventionist foreign policy. If Paul throws his hat in the ring for the 2012 election, there is a good chance he will win.

On Saturday, Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) announced that Paul would be expelled from the organization’s National Advisory Board because of his “delusional and disturbing alliance with the fringe Anti-War movement,” in other words his opposition to the neocon plan in the Middle East and Central Asia.

“It is a sad day in American history when a one-time conservative-libertarian stalwart has fallen more out of touch with America’s needs for national security than the current feeble and appeasing administration,” YAF’s Senior National Director Jordan Marks said in a statement.

“Rep. Paul’s refusal to support our nation’s military and national security interests border on treason, aside from his failure to uphold his oath to the United States Constitution and defend our country and citizens against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” Marks added.

“Freedom and prosperity cannot peacefully exist alongside radical Islam. It is unfortunate that Ron Paul – a member of the U.S. Congress – does not understand this. Surely, our enemies do.”

According to YAF, Ron Paul is somewhere to the left of Obama. Not mentioned by YAF is the fact the Obama administration has continued the so-called war on terror and has embraced and expanded the neocon agenda abroad and at home.



Obama’s foreign policy — a continuation and expansion of the neocon agenda

Paul served on YAF’s board of advisors for more than two decades. He has made positive comments about the organization on the floor of the House. YAF even gave him its top honor, the Guardian of Freedom award.

Now YAF has decided to expel him and embrace the neocon agenda.

YAF describes itself as “the nation’s oldest, largest, and most active conservative-libertarian youth organization. YAF was started at the estate of William F. Buckley, Jr. in 1960 to uphold the principles of the Sharon Statement.”

Buckley was a CIA operative, a fact documented by his son, Christopher Buckley.

As an Ivy League student at Yale, Buckley was recruited by the CIA and served for two years including one year in Mexico City working as a political action specialist in the elite Special Activities Division – the division responsible for covert operations, black operations and other “special activities” including covert political action — and worked directly under E. Howard Hunt, the notorious CIA operative who admitted before his death that he was intimately involved in the John F. Kennedy assassination.

Neocon Republicans are sick and tired of Ron Paul and the Constitution of the United States that specifically requires Congress to declare war. They are determined to take him down prior to the election season that begins later this year.

Warner Todd Huston, a neocon op-ed writer and one-time shill and sycophant for presidential candidate and television actor Fred Thompson, encapsulates the establishment contempt for Paul. Following Paul’s CPAC straw poll win, Huston wrote that Paul’s supporters

'are rabid, grossly over amped, childish, petulant, stick any negative description here and they are it. CPAC is a conservative event. But it is one for adults. Not the loud, unruly children that Ron Paul has repeatedly sent to the event. CPAC should be a place where all versions of Republicans and conservatives (which are assuredly not synonymous, of course) can come to hear speeches and learn what all sides of the conservative movement are thinking. We should sit and listen attentively like grown ups and not constantly boo people with whom we disagree.'



According to Huston, we should sit attentively as the neocon leadership – and the Obama administration and a Democrat Congress – violate the Constitution and invade small countries. Adults of Huston’s ilk cheered as the neocon tool Bush ordered the mass murder of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis under the false pretense of aluminum tubes (the death toll is now around 1.5 million men, women, and children – a war crime approaching that of the Nazis).



If elected to the presidency, Ron Paul will end the wars, bring home the troops, and restore constitutional sanity to government.

In the months ahead, we can expect the establishment Republicans and the rabid neocon Muslim haters and warmongers to go after Paul with all guns blazing.

Here's the video of Ron Paul supporters calling Cheney a "war criminal" at the CPAC conference;



'Draft Dodger! War Criminal!' - Cheney Heckled At CPAC; Ron Paul Supporters Walk Out On Rumsfeld



Video - Earlier today Dick 'Five Deferments' Cheney gets a spirited welcome at CPAC from some Ron Paul conservatives - Feb. 10, 2011

Cheney was at CPAC this afternoon to present the Defender of the Constitution Award to Don Rumsfeld. Rumsfeld was booed loudly when he made his own entrance just a few minutes earlier. A large contingent of the audience also got up and left in protest. Beautiful.



Ron Paul supporters speak out on Cheney

It was all very odd, especially considering that when Cheney appeared as the "surprise guest" at last year's CPAC he was greeted with the kind of cheers generally reserved for a rock star. But Team Paul -- whose numbers appear to have grown at CPAC in 2011 -- were not going to let that happen this time around.

"Uh, Defender of the Constitution?" Justin Bradfield of Maryland scoffed when I caught up with him after he walked out of Rumsfeld's speech. "Let's see: he expanded the Defense Department more than pretty much any other defense secretary and he enforced the Patriot Act."

"[Speaking] as a libertarian, that's not really the type of person who should be getting Defender of the Constitution," he added.

Bradfield said the moment showed that "half" of CPAC this year is libertarian, which means his side is winning in the civil war between "libertarians and right-wing conservatives."

"We're loud," he said.
