Eric Dondero on the Ron Paul newsletters – Damning or exculpatory testimony?

As predicted: after it appeared that Ron Paul, the sole antiwar contender of the major parties in the primaries for the US presidential election 2012 is leading the polls in Iowa, the state to vote first in the primaries, the propaganda machine of the zionist establishment attacks the only peace candidate of 2012 with all it’s might.

And of course, the zionist lobby tries to use it’s standard trick to defame antiwar activism and keep the war machine going: they try to portray Ron Paul as a racist and anti-semite.

Keeping Ron Paul small by ignoring him is no longer possible, so the Israel lobby uses all it’s propaganda might to defame Ron Paul now. However, their propaganda machine is apparently lacking proper ammunition.

Starting the propaganda attack of the zionist mob against Ron Paul was James Kirchick, a „leading voice on gay politics“ – as Wikipedia says – publishing frequently for newspapers including The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, and the Israeli Haaretz. In 2008 James Kirchick published in „The New Republic“ a piece on newsletters distributed under the name of Ron Paul some 20 years ago, saying they were testimony of an „obsession with conspiracies, sympathy for the right-wing militia movement, and deeply held bigotry against blacks, Jews, and gays.“ Now James Kirchick warmed up that old charge again, this time publishing it in The Weekly Standard, the zionist propaganda outlet of the notoriuos and infamous zionist warmoger Bill Kristol. His a href=“http://www.weeklystandard.com/articles/company-ron-paul-keeps_613474.html“>new slur against Ron Paul using 20 year old newsletters reads like this:

While Paul’s views on Israel certainly place him outside the American, never mind Republican, mainstream, there is an even more elementary reason the RJC was right to exclude him from its event. It is Paul’s lucrative and decades-long promotion of bigotry and conspiracy theories, for which he has yet to account fully, and his continuing espousal of extremist views, that should make him unwelcome at any respectable forum, not only those hosted by Jewish organizations.

The zionist propaganda machine is now hyperventilating James Kirchick’s slurs. Ultra-Zionist Jennifer Rubin tries to use the newsletters to bring up charges against Ron Paul in the Washington Post, a paper once famous for investigative journalism and scoops like Watergate, but nowadays hard to distinguish from all the other hasbara outlets:

It’s appalling to those familiar with his racist and anti-Semitic newsletters. As Jamie Kirchick reminds us, his lucrative newsletter business in the 1980s and 1990s was filled with pure rubbish and hate-filled conspiracy theories

And of course, the New York Times, a US publication well known for recklessly spreading misleading propaganda to serve the interests of zionists, warmongers and banksters, uses James Kirchick’s slur against Ron Paul, too. It starts:

Emerging as a real Republican contender in Iowa, Representative Ron Paul of Texas is receiving new focus for decades-old unbylined columns in his political newsletters that included racist, anti-gay and anti-Israel passages that he has since disavowed.

After repeating the old slurs in a long column the New York Times says what the hope of the New York Times and the zionists, warmongers and bankstersit serves, is:

The question now is whether the newsletters’ reappearance will hurt Mr. Paul with some of his younger supporters.

The zionist news channel CNN brought up the same slurs in a recent interview with Ron Paul:

Ron Paul said he didn’t write the newsletters, he disavowed them and they don’t reflect his believes. People dig this up, because his economic policies are winning, his foreign policy is winning, and his monetary policy is winning.

That view on the story is publicly challenged by a former employee of Ron Paul, Eric Dondero. Eric Dondero worked for a dozen years for Ron Paul. In 2007, after Eric Dondero publicly declared that he will compete against Ron Paul in his district Texas 14 in the elections to the House of Representatives, Ron Paul described as a „disgruntled former employee who was fired.“ Eric Dondero recently described political disagreements with Ron Paul in the comments section of the well-known US blog The American Spectator (Archive):

Eric Dondero| 12.18.11 @ 8:45AM

It’s not just „conservatives against Paul.“ We libertarians oppose him, as well. He does not recognize the threat to our civil and sexual liberties that Islamism represents. He doesn’t even acknowledge that Islamo-Fascism exists. How can you take someone seriously, when they flirt with 9/11 Trutherism, and repeatedly say that Islamists are friendly people who pose no threat to the United States?

Ron Paul is a 50%-er. He’s 100% right on 50% of the issues. His economic views are superb. His foreign policy absolutely sucks.

So Eric Dondero disagrees with Ron Paul on the reception of islamism and foreign policy. And a bit later in the comments Eric Dondero is absolutely clear on what kind of a foreign policy he wants:

We need to loose our senses and rein bloody hell on our Islamist enemies in revenge. Whatever it takes. And for the rest of our lives.

Eric Dondero wants revenge, loosing senses, „rein bloody hell“ on Islamists and endless war for the rest of his life. But Ron Paul wants non-intervention, restraint and peace. Eric Dondero is in the camp of the anti-islamic war lobby, while Ron Paul is in the camp of peace. So no wonder that he got fired and there is a lot of bad blood between Eric Dondero and Ron Paul.

And then Eric Dondero speaks about the newsletters:

Eric Dondero| 12.18.11 @ 8:24AM

Lew Rockwell and Jeff Tucker wrote the Newsletters (with major input from Murray Rothbard and Marc Thornton). Jean McCiver edited them for clarity and grammar out of the Houston office on Nasa Blvd. Ron was merely a figurhead.

But he did read them, every line of them, off his fax machine at his Clute office before they were published. He would typically sign them at the bottom of the last page giving his okay, and re-fax them to Jean to go to the printer.

Eric Dondero, Personal Asst./Travel Aide
Ron Paul, Libertarian for President, 1987/88
Crdtr. Ron Paul for President Exploratory Comm. 1991
Campaign Coordinator, Ron Paul for Congress, 1995/96
Senior Aide, US Cong. Ron Paul, 1997-2003

So, that looks like damning testimony. If that’s true it looks like Ron Paul didn’t write the ugly newsletters, but he knew the content of the newsletters, or, to say the least, he must have known it, and he was responsible for it. The Spectator made a damning story on Ron Paul out of this comment. In this way it pretty much looks like that Ron Paul about 20 years ago was a racist, and anti-semite and hating gays.

However, Eric Dondero made another comment there which casts a different view on Ron Paul (emphasisi mine):

Eric Dondero| 12.18.11 @ 8:56AM

One other note before I sign off. Many here in the comments section have called Ron Paul, an „anti-Semite.“ I wouldn’t use that phrase exactly. I worked for the guy for 12 years, and never once heard an anti-Semitic word come out of his mouth. He has absolutely no problem with Jewish Americans.

However, he is most certainly Anti-Israel. He wishes Israel did not exist at all. He told me so numerous times. His basic view is that the Israeli State is much more trouble than it’s worth, and costs the American taxpayer way too much money; better to hand it over to the Arabs he said to me on numerous occasions.

Ron also care not one wit about protecting Western civilization. He is an isolationist in the truest form. Protecting France, the UK, Germany, Italy, Greece from Islamist immigrants and worse, Islamic terrorists, is not at all on his radar screen.

Finally, let me clear one thing up for the record. Ron Paul did NOT want to vote for the intervention in Afghanistan after 9/11. He sided with our Legislative Director Joe Becker (a self-described Anarchist) and Paleo-Conservative Norm Singleton, then Legislative Asst. in opposing any sort of strike against Al Qaeda.

It was only the threat from half of his staff at the time, including myself, and our District Director Jackie Gloor, to publicly resign if he did not vote for the Afghanistan bill, plus his wife Carol and almost his entire family (INCLUDING HIS SON RAND PAUL), haranguing him to change his position, that finally convinced him to vote for the bill. And he only made that decision on the very final day, in the very final hours, causing us staffers incredible anxiety and angst.

Read the key sentence again: „I worked for the guy for 12 years, and never once heard an anti-Semitic word come out of his mouth.“

That’s a public testimony from a war monger who knows Ron Paul well and who is currently very much at odds with Ron Paul. That guy damns Ron Paul for his opposition to the „war on terror“ and publicly testifies against him regarding the newsletters to build a case against Ron Paul.

So that’s the truth: it’s all zionist smears. Ron Paul is not a racist, he’s not an anti-Semite, but he dislikes the costly US policy regarding Israel. There is no reason to believe otherwise. His opposition to the US policies regarding Israel is why the powerful lobby of the apartheid state of Israel is runnning wild and tries to trump up any charges they can find against Ron Paul. Ron Paul’s major mistake regarding racism was to have war mongers and hate preachers as Eric Dondero in his environment, but in the cases of the newsletters and Eric Dondero Ron Paul has corrected a long time ago.

And now let’s see what Ron Paul himself has to say on racism:

So, Ron Paul is the only presidential candidate, who wants to end the senseless so-called „war on drugs“ and get it’s incarcered victims out of prison – and very many of them black. While others use racism for their campaign purposes, Ron Paul is going to make real change happen.

  1. Hoffentlich gewinnt er die Wahl. Er braucht in jedem Fall Bodyguards die ihn beschützen, soviel steht fest. Gegenwärtig kann ihm keiner der antretenden Kandidaten das Wasser reichen. Ich hoffe für die Amerikaner, dass sich nach Jahren der Steinzeitpolitik, Verlogenheit und Gier – endlich wieder Intelligenz und Humanismus in der Staatsführung etabliert. Und sich das auf die Bevlkerung abfärbt. Mit einem Ron Paul als Präsidenten wäre das möglich.

  2. Vielen Dank für die hervorragende Analyse. Bitte entschuldigen Sie diese Google Englischen ins Deutsche Übersetzung vorschlagen, wenn falsch. Es ist sehr entmutigend, so viel Desinformation in den großen US-Medien zu sehen. Allerdings hat Ron Paul ein Heer von Anhängern, die die Freiheit lieben und wollen, dass unsere Bundesregierung zu ihrer verfassungsrechtlichen Grenzen zurück. Ich stimme mit den vorherigen commentor, dass mit Ron Paul als Präsident wäre es viel einfacher für die Freiheit Liebhaber in den U.S., Deutschland und anderen Ländern auf friedliche Wege zu Wohlstand zu verfolgen.
