Max Keiser Swipes at Ron Paul; Commenter calls RP a Bankster Tool **UPDATED**

Our economics revolutionary pal over at The Keiser Report takes a swipe at Dr. Paul over New York City's best trash-bin-liner The Sun and its piece on Ron Paul wanting to sell off the contents of Fort Knox.


What's interesting is in the comments section, where a former Idaho campaign activist by the name of "Claire" recounts her disillusionment with the 08 campaign, and specifically refers to Dr. Paul as a willing tool of the Banksters.

UPDATE A: According to MISH, the economics blogger, the NY Sun confused Ron Paul with Ron Utt of the Heritage Foundation, a neocon cesspool heavily promoted by Sean Hannity and Poison Levin.


Ronald Utt's smiling portrait may be found on Heritage's website:


UPDATE B: "Claire" is in fact former Daily Paul member "fishyculture" who went bananas and became an archtraitor to Dr. Paul. So that explains why she wrote heinous drivel about the 08 campaign.

Funny that Max Keiser called

Funny that Max Keiser called Ron Paul a Bankster tool when the big banks were worried that he would get a chairmanship of a subcommittee.

Did Ron Paul verbally said that the comment did not take place? All that I see is just speculation at this point.

I love how people try to

I love how people try to attach a negative connotation to the word progressive! Progressive does not necessarily mean liberal....I would call libertarianism pretty progressive at this point. I mean, it seems like all others are way behind.


O jeez

And I love how recovering statist liberals think that "progressive" merely means "smarter" or "forward thinking".

I suggest you look up the term in the context of political philosophy.

Max Keiser is a CAPITAL "P" Progressive. Progressivism is a political doctrine that espouses a centralization and expansion of government. It is authoritarian, militant and eglatarian. It espouses rule by technocrat elite. It is a philosophy a mere whisker away from Marxism.

See: Woodrow Wilson, Teddy Roosevelt, Margaret Sanger, Thomas Edison, FDR...

The term "progressive" (in an unspecific sense) means absolutely nothing. EVERYONE thinks they are "progressive".

Liberal doesn't necessarily mean liberal either.

Some people think being liberal means liking Che Guevara and supporting gay marriage and pot. But classical liberalism was all about free markets.

It's good to know where confused people stand.

And good to know it this early in the game.

Keiser = Progressive

Although he's with us in regards to banksters, Keiser is in no way a libertarian or government minimalist. He believes in a virtuous and benevolent nanny state...just one that is somehow impervious to capture by the banksters.

He's a classic example of the naive progressive worldview: that somehow we can make government good if we just keep replacing the corrupt versions of it.

if you're all friends with this slanderer

then i'm sorry i can't befriend you.. a shame that you guys otherwise seem to be nice people

look i don't know this "claire" "fishyculture" or whatever name he/she goes by.. but i can see ron paul and the work he has put out there, so when it comes down to it, i'm going to be on ron paul's side every time.

putting aside past incidents for the moment.. if past behavior is any indicator of future, there is bound to be more slanders yet to come from this person

i guess i'm just kinda tired seeing people putting up posts defending a person i don't give a crap about and have no interest in attacking had she not been the willing party to initiate the confrontation and make this a public issue.. you realize it's not people defending ron paul and seeing her as a threat that are at fault, right? do you realize she is using her past involvement with the movement to claim insider status and then proceed to defame ron paul? i'm kinda sick of seeing people patting each other on the back.. this is arguably the most important election this country's ever had.. sorry to sound too cold but this isn't your goddamn dinner table.. keep your issues at home


RP is a country doctor, not a city one :)

*Note...the only question I have is regarding monarchy.

ie. Hans-Hermann Hoppe in his 'Democracy-the God that Failed' or something like that; preferred a monarchy over democracy...ok I can see his viewpoint...yet, the royal monarchs on this world have a whack load of gold and investments in mining companies. The sudden rise in the prices in this area of industry does boost their wealth considerably and if a sound based currency were to come about like proposed here they would most certainly be in the driver seat?


The Gold was Stolen

Originally, the gold in Ft. Knox was held to back "greenbacks", which were redeemable in gold. In other words, the holders of the Federal Reserve Notes were the true owners of the gold. When Roosevelt outlawed private ownership of gold and gold-backed money, he effectively confiscated our gold. When Nixon closed the "gold window", he effectively confiscated the gold of foreign nations.

As stolen property, what is the most equitable way to disperse that property?

I'm thinking that it was

the owners of the gold certificates who were the owners of the gold in Ft Knox? Your main point is exactly right, however!

fishyculture actually broke down right here on the DP.

We are all praying for you fishy.

Get Well.

I wondered what happened to

I wondered what happened to her..she had done some good things..you say now she is against Dr. Paul? How can that be?

Thank you Rhino

many people share Claire's point of view...

Love is the answer...

there is nothing wrong with Fishy!

there is lots of wrong with the planet she lives on.

Nice gesture...

Nice gesture of human compassion,First one must acknowledge that the problem exists in order to heal it.Here lies the problem.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

I have family members that are sick in the similar ...


They behave normal, logical, and rational if they know they are loved unconditionally by thier closest friends and small amounts of medication or a strict diet.

I pray for such an environment for fishy.

Believe me,I understand...

Believe me,I understand,I have those in the family also.They have now become anti social recluses that are unreachable by any means at all.It is always good to hope though.

anyone with half a brain knows that Ron Paul is smart

he said "sell the gold" to audit it lol. Its sneaky and smart for Ron Paul to say sell the gold.You cant sell something that doesnt exist or is fraudulent.


he never actually said that.

I think he said this to be

I think he said this to be able to see the gold in Fort Knox, he did a radio interview from Vegas with this answer, no?

Teach a man to fish and you feed him for the rest of his life.
Teach a man to phish and he'll clean out your bank account.

Swede you're right!Yes, he

Swede you're right!
Yes, he did say that in one of the radio interviews from Vegas.

Listen RP podcasts of radioshows from:

"Air is the very substance of our freedom, the substance of superhuman joy....aerial joy is freedom."--Gaston Bachelard--

paying down the debt with

paying down the debt with gold is a stupid thing to do since the debt is FIAT and gold is real. then the stupid bankers will lend the gold back to the people!

IT was a stupid thing to say to pay down the debt with gold. pay it back with US notes, created from nothing!


it isn't stupid.who will pay the debts if no one pays them? think about it,.....but honestly Ron Paul doesnt intend to sell the gold,he just wants to audit it..hes smart.


It sounds weird at the beginning but having the gold in the market place is much better than rotting in some government building.

Sorry, but I could care less

Sorry, but I could care less what Max says, he's a loser in my book long before this.

He's a troll. Follow him and he will lead you nowhere

What gold?

There is no fine gold (99%) left at Fort Knox. There may be some old coin melt but other than that, Fort Knox is empty.

Maybe Max was criticizing RP for being involved in the gold commission some years ago that was almost as effective as the 9/11 commission?

It is a bit of a farce for RP to now be coy in suggesting that the U.S. sell gold that he knows it doesn't have.

END the FED before it ENDS US

I'm gonna be honest.

But you aren't the most consistent when it comes to character assessment. It's even worse when you try to shame us for it.

She made a video in which thousands of viewers saw her call Ron Paul satanic. She also lied about having inside information that he was. It was her top viewed video. Thousands saw it, Tomasz.

Nothing wrong with...

Nothing wrong with making an attempt to see the good in everybody before searching for the bad.Shows good character.

Fishy says: "Arrest them all, begin with Paul."


LL says she one of us? He's seen these videos.
