Rand Paul will "hijack the pro-Israel GOP"

Say what?

How is it a person can be accused of being anti-Israel simply because they want to cut aid to foreign nations to help fix the desperate economic situation this country is in? What possible merit could these accusations have?

Rand Paul: 'Portraying me as being against Israel...is as nonfactual as it is offensive'

Matt Welch | Reason | Nov. 19, 2012 11:18 am

There's an interesting back-and-forth over at Commentary magazine between Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) and Jonathan S. Tobin over whether the libertarian-minded Tea Party senator will (in the formulation of Tobin's original headline) "hijack the pro-Israel GOP." I think Paul gets the better of what is an important argument; you be the judge.

You are

what you are - an average size populist, above and below.

Total number of socialist-progressives in USA, UK, France is more than total Jewish population on Earth. Total number of USSR and China communists were bigger than tottal number of Jews. Total number of non-Jewish employees at Goldman Sachs is more than total Jewish employees there. Total money from non-Jews are more then money from all Jews.

But mental anxiety and deep inferiority you cannot admit makes your brain focus on Jews.

"deep inferiority"

lol oh the irony... the fact that you constantly result to personal attacks on anyone who bothers to respond to you only makes it look like YOU have an inferiority complex.

You just do not get it do you?

1. It has NOTHING to do with practitioner of Judaism (Jews).

2. It has EVERYTHING to do with Zionist.

3. A company can have 10 or 1000 or a million employees who are not zionist but the bosses are all zionist.

4. See who gave $$$ to Obama n Romney? Why did Obama, Romney, Bush, Hillary, Biden, McCain went to Tel Aviv? The ppl of Tel Aviv do not partake in US election. Israel is not the 51st of USA.

Wouldn't it be EASIER just to go to New York IF the point is to get the Jewish votes?

5. So you see, it is NOT about Jews or their numbers. It is about the $$$ and media owned by these Zionist


do not what to argue with mentally weak. Just one comment out of pity. Companies do not donate, only employees. Bosses are limited to $2500 as anyone else. There is NO reason why non-Jews cannot be a doctor, lawyer, start his/her own company. Compensate few rich Jews by many non-rich non-Jews - 10 bosses by $2500 is 1000 by $25.

PACs are just a recent law, it did not help republicans. There is absolutely no reason for Zionists to vote for Obama.

The media coverage

1. Let take Ron Paul's example. Financially we were doing OK although we did not had the $$$$$$ that Romney had. But we managed.

2. However one thing Romney HAD in abundance that Paul did not was fair or good media coverage. Who controls these MSM, i wonder?

3. Oh maybe you are new to the Repub vs Dem thing but it does not matter who wins, coz they are all the same. We the People are always the losers

I find it interesting the way

I find it interesting the way the Zionist and Zionist sympathizers in Washington are manipulating our politicians. It appears they have bought and paid for 99 percent of them. Let me see, the way I see it, the lobbyists bribe the politicians, the politicians pass legislation to give the government of Israel our tax payer money, the Israeli government pays off the lobbyists -- the beat goes on. I have no doubt Rand will get his share. Of course I could be wrong.

As the next election...

draws closer, people like Tobin and other Neoconservatives will be heckling Rand Paul.

The party bosses, and the neoconservatives have already selected the next candidate; Jeb Bush. And this time, in order to pander to Latino voters, they'll add a little bit zing called Marco Rubio as VP.

And the worthless GOP will once again pick another blue blooded Bush family member as part of their Republican legacy. And I thought Democrats were bad with the Kennedys.

The Libertarian Party, irrelevant since 1971.

@RandyDog: One slight but

@RandyDog: One slight but important detail is missing! Jeb and Rubio CAN'T be on the same ticket!!


Rubio is NOT a natural born citizen. He is not qualified to run for POTUS OR VP...
Rand still has my support. While I have not agreed with all of his Senatorial voting record, I agree with most of it...

O.P.O.G.G. - Fighting the attempted devolution of the rEVOLution
Ron Paul 2012...and beyond

Did that...

stop Obama...


sure. Some say Frank Marshall Davis was Obama's real father; some say Malcolm X...

O.P.O.G.G. - Fighting the attempted devolution of the rEVOLution
Ron Paul 2012...and beyond

Let us be fair and objective here...

1) To SURVIVE in modern American politics (post cold war), you need to be a subservient OR at least seems to be a subservient of the Zionist.

2) The FACT is post cold war, the Zionist have HIJACKED both parties.

3) When Rand Paul suggested to CUT giving money to all other nations, he did not mentioned Israel EVEN though Israel is included in the list. Instead he used Muslim countries.

This to me is a STRATEGY. The FACT that he was the ONLY one against the sanction recently shows he is one of us.

4) America is a big continent where 90% are IGNORANT with what is happening beyond their borders.

Americans DEPEND on Hollywood and the main stream media (does not matter if it is CNN or Fox). Guess who control these two things?

5) If he goes around criticizing Israel openly, he is finished (the MSM will attack him 24/7).

Dont blame Rand Paul. We get the Govt we deserved. Americans get the Govt they deserved because majority of our people are ignorant. Rand just playing the game to survive

Yup... the ol' Palin trick.

It's basic rebranding. You (A) take someone like Palin, who is a FAKE-TEA HUGE-GOVERNMENT republican... and (B) run stories about "so-n-so Establishment is attacking Palin" - thus FALSELY POSITIONING HER as ANTI-Establishment. Then (C) watch the weak-minded folks knee-jerk circle the wagons to "defend" Palin... WHILE SEEMING TO FORGET SHE'S A FAKE-TEA HUGE GOVERNMENT REPUBLICAN!!!!!!

I strongly suspect the Liberty Movement co-opting republicans are gonna pull the same scheme with Rand "playin' the game" Paul. Rand Paul IS A LYING SELLOUT WHO NOW HAS SUGGESTED A "PATHWAY" (AMNESTY) FOR ETHNOCENTRIC ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIMINALS WHO ARE KILLING, RAPING AND CHILD-MOLESTING THOUSANDS... just to give the LEFTIST republican party a tiny percentage boost (which would realistically NEVER HAPPEN, ANYWAY)!!!!! WHO CARES WHO IS SAYING WHAT ABOUT RAND PAUL?!?!?!?!?!

As a Constitutional Libertarian, I will NEVER, EVER, EVER support nor vote for Rand "playin' the game" Paul. EVER.

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

I love the irony

Mexicans are not just child-molesting rapist murderers, but they are "ethnocentric" as well :D

Who said anything...

about Mexicans?

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

I upvoted you

even though I can't say I agree with your analysis on Rand Paul. Nobody knows what his true M.O is or what he wants to do long term except him, and maybe his father. We forget who groomed him from birth, i have a hard time believing that his sole objective for going into politics was to immediately sell out but again, who knows?

I upvoted you because you explained the propagandists tactic perfectly. They put in Sarah Palin, who's actually a neocon, then the controlled opposition "left wing media" attacks her and it legitimizes her from the standpoint of people on "the right". It's brilliant. It's like reverse, reverse psychology!

The neocon talking heads do the same thing. They attack Obama on things his supporters like anyways. For example they'll say something like "Uuuugh you see Obama wants to cut DEFENSE spending!?! He is soft on the war on terror!" Obama supporters hear that and think "well good, he MUST be anti-war if the republicans are bashing him for this" And in actuality, Obama is Bush 2.0 and has started MORE wars...It's two birds one stone. It is BRILLIANT propaganda.

HOW did YOU MAKE it THROUGH HIS paragraph?!?!?


You post seems heavy on

You post seems heavy on emotion and light on logic.

Your response seems heavy on...

criticism and light on EXAMPLES.

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

Rand Paul's actual voting

Rand Paul's actual voting record is closer to Ron Paul's than any Senator in the last 100 years.

The record doesn't concern me.

The SEVERE lack of integrity does.

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

Back to emotion vs fact I

Back to emotion vs fact I see.

Lack of integrity

IS a fact.

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

I think the votes speak for

I think the votes speak for themselves.

Why are you yelling? Also, who cares what you are saying

about Rand Paul?

Maybe you should go back to campaigning for the Libertarian and Constitution parties. They need your vote!

How about instead of campaigning against Ron Paul's son on the DailyPaul, the only libertarian in the Senate and the best chance in a 100 years we have for a president who follows the Constitution and the rule of law, you go campaign positively for someone else?


No, Rand "playin' the game" Paul IS REPUBLICAN. NOT "libertarian." REPUBLICAN.

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.


there are a lot of voters who don't seem to understand the difference between political party "Republican" and "constitutional libertarian" political ideology. You sir are just another statistic.

The Libertarian Party, irrelevant since 1971.

Then let my tic mark...

fall on the side of TRUTH and not DECEPTIVE semantical gymnastics.

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.


Why the heck would your tic mark end up on the truth side?

Ooooh... look, a section for emotional raving. There you go, you'll feel at home there.
