Peter Schiff Rigorously Defends Controversial Remarks About Preemptively Bombing Iran

Political endorsements reveal a lot about a person. They offer insight into the agenda and policies which a candidate endorses. Peter blow the place up Schiff, Ron Paul’s former presidential campaign economic advisor and son of Irwin Schiff, has revealed a key element of his ideology by announcing his support and endorsement of Mark Greenberg for Congress.
Schiff, who recently appeared on the Alex Jones show rigorously defending his controversial remarks about preemptively bombing Iran if they dare develop a nuclear weapon...

smear campaigns never get old.

Half of Israel's economy is

Half of Israel's economy is military industrial complex oriented. Schiff's support of Israel is unacceptable.

this thread

just convinced me to donate another $100.

Ron Paul endorsed Mike Lee!

Ron Paul endorsed Mike Lee, US Senate candidate in Utah. Below is a quote directly from Lee's website. I hope this means you will no longer be supporting Ron Paul either. I hope you also speak out against Ron Paul and show your true colors here! If not, you are just attempting to smear Peter!

"As a member of the U.S. Senate, I will support Israel’s right to defend itself against threats to its national sovereignty and security. I will also support U.S. efforts to protect Israel, given the close connection between Israel’s national security and our own. I strongly support the maintenance of Israel's qualitative military edge and recognize the important role the United States plays in assuring that this military superiority is maintained. In the Senate, I would support security assistance for Israel to enable Israel to maintain this critical edge. Such security assistance to Israel plays an important role in helping to maintain our own national security.

The government currently ruling in Iran presents a threat to the security of both the United States and Israel. I will therefore support efforts to place pressure on the government of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, with an eye toward persuading Iran to abandon its nuclear weapons ambitions. Should those efforts prove unsuccessful, military action would be justified. "

The last paragraph and especially the last sentence sucks.

"place pressure" on a country is an act of war.

Should those efforts prove unsuccessful, military action would be justified, IF WAR IS FORMALLY DECLARED BY CONGRESS.



Good luck with that! Do you know when the last time was, when that actually happened in this country? I think it was WII. Getting Schiff elected is just what we need - another warmonger. Oh well, this country is already going to the dogs. What's one more?

That is just why I said that. That is what Ron Paul says.

Wars must declared by Congress. WWII was indeed the last declared war, and look at the endless non-won wars that came after.

If you are referring to me being a warmonger, you are in error.

If you prefer preemptive wars than those formally declared, then I ask you who is the warmonger?

Sorry, evidently I didn't make myself clear.

No, I wasn't calling you a warmonger and no, I'm not a warmonger! I was calling Peter Schiff and his ilk warmongers (you know -Peter blow the place up Schiff). I think we agree here!

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Schiff is proving himself to be a scam artist

Like father, like son.

We need to ride this punk out of here before he tarnishes the good name of Ron Paul.

Frankly, the way this site pushes gold and Schiff, DailyPaul might be a Schiff front.

Ron Paul "pushes" gold all the time.

To use your terminology.

Peter Schiff was RPs economic advisor on his 2008 campaign.

The common link between them is the Austrian School of economics.

wow, just wow

wow, just wow

Good call Michael. It must be

Good call Michael. It must be hard banning people, but sometimes you have to do what is necessary. I applaud the hard work you have done with everything as of lately! It seems like there have been quite a few trolls trying to stir trouble recently, and you and the mods have done a great job sorting things out.



I hope you are referring to

I hope you are referring to that Boru character. He is such a troll and negative and makes racist and antisemitic rants. I am surprised he hasn't gone earlier.

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Good call Michael.

This isn't the first time he's posted the same thoughts on that very theme.

Thanks Mike!

Thanks Mike!

Thanks Michael....

that was perhaps the most uncalled for comment I have ever read on DP in over 2 years that Ive been here.

Please consider deleting his comment as well.

Great news! I was curious

Great news! I was curious about this after being bombarded with these spurious claims for weeks now. The difference is that I research a little better and have better discernment than some folks. Most people here are the same. So I sincerely doubt you are going to be able to bamboozle many patriots. (feign indignation now and claim the moral high ground.)
Keep promoting this nonsense. It won't help you. There comes a time when you just have to grow up.
Even if these ridiculous charges were true, I would still vote for Schiff for his economic views if nothing else.

"The United States can pay any debt it has because we can always print money to do that." — Alan Greenspan

It's walking on "political eggshells"

...I do not like AIPAC owning our congressmen
...I accept Israel has borders, a government, and a military
...I do not like churches saying teh current state of Israel is Bible Prophecy and ALL Christians MUST support them(or they are not Christians)
...I do not turn a blind eye to the arguments made that suggest Muslim clerics are well-funded to cause trouble
...I do not turn a blind eye to the murder of innocent people by military superpowers
... and I wholly LOVE the majority opinion in the Ron Paul camp about pre-emptive war, blow-back, entangling alliances, and Just War Theory!

If we are OBLIGATED to do anything for anybody, it is because our self-centered politicians coming out of the PROSPERITY of our industrial revolution IGNORED the warnings of Proverbs 22:7 - "the borrower is servant to the lender" ... and Proverbs 22:26 "Be not thou one of them that strike hands, or of them that are sureties for debts."

Our best hope - God mercifully guides GOOD MEN to take over stewardship of our nation's governance...and all them self-serving politicians SUFFER the deserved consequences for their willful ignorance and quick decisions against ALL history, wisdom, and sound judgment and counsel.

"Israel defending herself" is NOT the United States committing genocide as a political or monetary pay off...it is also NOT the United States leading a modern day "crusades" against a "created" nightmare ...

The Creator has an accounting of all good and evil in the world - concern yourself with what you can CONTROL; He has awoken many to "take a stand" for the innocent because it has always been the right thing to do ... and He is still personally is sovereign over all the results...

As long as we're WILLING to take in alternate points of views; and not subscribe to blind loyalties or HEAR and HEED "red flags" - we have a shot - as long as our PERSONAL MOTIVES are truly SELFLESS; not protectionist, not denominational, not racist, and NOT money-serving ...

I think we CAN WIN ... we just have to ...



before i even bother with your article

with the same line of personal association logic, i think i've seen you defending socialistic ideas before in your posts if my memory serves me right. so what are you, a real libertarian or a fake one?

Someone told me

that Schiff has changed his positions on foreign policy... he used to be libertarian, but now he talks like a neocon. I wasn't ware of Shiff's shift... I want my 25 dollars back...

Listen to his last interview with Alex Jones.

He said that if there were "good intelligence" on Iranian WMDs, that he would support bombing raids on Iranian nuclear facilities.

I think that sounds like a bad idea myself, but apparently he thinks that is the only position that Connecticut voters will support.

Ohh, pleeeeease. Did you

Ohh, pleeeeease. Did you even hear what he said? I doubt it, but you are going with the hype and rhetoric instead?

He said that as a republican he cannot hold a position that IF there is EVIDENCE of Iran having a nuclear bomb and EVIDENCE that they plan to bomb inside the US, he would strike first.

Unless, of course you want to publicly state as a republican that you want to wait until a nuclear bombs goes off in NYC before you do anything. Good luck getting elected to ANY office with that position.

Its this type of fear mongering and panic that spreads misinformation. Of course you can support Linda Mcmahon instead.

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

The person who told me this, who I trust, actually

decided that Schiff might not be a neocon after listening to a whole interview. I'm going to retract my above statement for now until I do some further investgating (on my own this time).

How about you do some

How about you do some FREEAKIN research BEFORE you make such statements? I am sure you are the first to be appalled by WRONG statements about Ron paul and others BEFORE they look into it, so don't do the same.

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Dood chill the f** out

I already said I retracted the above statement until further notice. There's too much to research to be on top of all things all the time..especially how things change, and opinons channge as new info comes to light. I haven't been following Schiff too much as I've been concentrating on what's going on AROUND HERE, so please, stop with self-rightous crucifiction.
