"Pentagon Like Federal Reserve" Our Foreign Policy Breakthrough!

The Paul Administration's Sec of Defense, Col. Macgregor opens up about the FED-like Pentagon finances and corruption.



As Ron Paul moves into first place and goes on to win early state contests people have legitimate questions about his role as Commander-in-Chief.

By introducing Col. Douglas Macgregor as Secretary of Defense and letting his record speak for itself we will assure voters that Ron Paul would have nothing less than the best in mind for our national defense.


Lt. Col. Macgregor's unit vastly outperformed its peers against the "Opposition Force."

Macgregor was a top Army thinker on innovation.
He "became prominent inside the Army" when he published Breaking the Phalanx, which argued for radical reforms. Breaking the Phalanx was rare in that an active duty military author was challenging the status quo with detailed reform proposals for the reorganization of U.S. Army ground forces. The head of the Army, United States General Dennis Reimer, wanted to reform the Army and effectively endorsed Breaking the Phalanx and passed copies out to generals; however, reforming the army according to the book met resistance from the "board of directors"—the four-star generals—and Reimer did not press the issue.

Many of Macgregor's colleagues thought his unconventional thinking may have harmed his chances for promotion. While an Army NTC official called him "the best war fighter the Army has got," colleagues of Macgregor were concerned that "the Army is showing it prefers generals who are good at bureaucratic gamesmanship to ones who can think innovatively on the battlefield.

Too bad

Chalmers Johnson isn't alive to see this.

Chalmers Johnson

The Blowback series

Johnson believed that the enforcement of American hegemony over the world constitutes a new form of global empire. Whereas traditional empires maintained control over subject peoples via colonies, since World War II the US has developed a vast system of hundreds of military bases around the world where it has strategic interests.

He developed

his theories on blowback after auditing the CIA. I think he would have liked to have lived to see the mainstream starting to follow his research.

we don't know what he can see

we don't know what he can see now.

But the bible says we have no bad memories of this life when we are in heaven


What an interview - send it far and wide!

Sweet Liberty

i sent it to all the major

i sent it to all the major news outlets/anchors

ytc's picture

Robert Greenwald reported that Military Contractor CEOs'

2010 pay were:
$ 22.84 Million for Northrop Grumman CEO, Wes Bush
$ 21.89 Million for Lockheed Martin CEO, Robert Stevens
$ 19.4 Million for Boeing CEO, James McNerney

and that War Industry Lobbying Expenditures for 2010 were:
$ 12.7 Million for Lockheed Martin
$ 15.7 Million for Northrop Grumman
$ 17.89 Million for Boeing

(FireDogLake.com Oct. 27, 2011 "Meet the 0.01 percent War Profiteers")

To maintain this kind of "military" expenditure every year they surely need to keep tax payers fearful enough of the ghosts of terrorists to acquiesce to the bloated budget.


supports Obama too. Good find.

That's a FANTASTIC interview!

That's a FANTASTIC interview! Let's get it bumped on youtube as much as possible folks.

Paul hasn't named his pick for Sec of Defense, but he and the judge are close, so I'd say this is either Paul's way of introducing the public to his future pick, or the judge's way of recommending a pick to Paul.

Based on what I'm seeing, this is EXACTLY the kind of guy we'd want to see in the DoD in a Paul administration. A professional military man, against whom the media can't level charges of amateurism/naivete/ideologue, but who (as a practical matter - whatever his politics) is 100% down with non-interventionism. He cuts a good figure too, looks and sounds like a military man - unlike Leon Panetta, for instance, who looks like he belongs in a basement crunching numbers at Langley, or sneaking up on somebody with piano wire.

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

This guy!

Wow very impressive. He certainly sounds like one of us. Does anyone have any more information on the Col? What is his record, reputation in the military, previous stances, convictions and philosophy? Im intrigued





Wow... it's refreshing to

Wow... it's refreshing to hear Ron Paul's exact arguments from Colonel MacGregor!


Thank You!Great video and pick!

Great video!

Great video!

Has Ron

actually named this guy, or is this just someone who agrees?

I don't see anything about him being named

Quick Yahoo search came up empty. He certainly seems like a good choice though, from what little I now know of him.

What is begun in anger, ends in shame.

quick google search


I saw mention of it over last

I saw mention of it over last weekend and got busy with other things then forgot where I saw it.

I found nothing through search either


That's my question too..

Bump for an answer..

Can I get a moderator to

I need a moderator to embedd the top video?

Wow, right on the money...pun intended
