Ron Paul's facebook post says DIA is being expanded overseas to rival CIA in size

"In 2010, I said in a speech that there had been a CIA coup in this country. The CIA runs the military, the drone program, and they are in drug trafficking. The CIA is a secretive government unto itself. Now we are told that the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) is to be radically expanded overseas to rival the CIA in size.

Thousands of new DIA spies are to be hired and placed undercover to help foment ever more covert wars and coups in foreign lands. Where will it all end?"

wow, I feel stupid...

This is the first time I ever heard of the DIA. Interesting story...

You are not alone! :)

Maybe together we can make it a couple of "stupid" guys, and hey, when two guys are "stupid" that is actually kinda FUN!

Dr. Paul does remind us all the time to HAVE FUN! :)

Just plain 'Happy'about the direction the world is taking! Especially if we live to reach LEV [Longevity Escape Velocity]

Need to Startpage up

What the agency's official budget is and send the number to Congress n ask them to stop

I have Levin and Stabenow, and they are way too busy to talk to one guy who wants to take away their Golden Goose...

Candace Miller, who got to vote NO on the first bailout because she was in her first term!

Guess I gotta move to Justin Amash's district.

What is his voting record on NDAA and Iran sanctions? If he YEAd any of that he needs to go, too.

Who will be the 21st Century Ron Paul?

Maybe it'll be a French Blonde woman who can not only find the numbers, but would have numbers of her own that need to be double checked.

Lets not go back to the stone ages of sexual liaisons with slaves. Let us instead settle in the period in which an older gentleman might take such a creature and, as (Ayn)Rand might, so to say, Galt her Dagny.

Hello from Mt. Pleasant MI!

Ahhh, Levin and Stabenow... I do not understand how they continue fooling our state into voting for them.

A vote where people tax themselves

To operate a large racketeering group called, here, the 'Drug Task Force' was called in the county in which I live YEA by Ten Thousand Votes.

I know of two people who voted no, at least.

But my money is given to these wealth and family Destruction Bots, who likely will take their Loot and purchase tiny drones to 'help keep Blank County Drug Free!'

Ten thousand people who voted YEA to stealing my neighbors' Money.

But Hey, Who Won The Game?

Is it any wonder the hub of Bread and Circuses is in Connecticut?

ESPN, H Dubya, NFL, ABC, spies foreign and domestic, FOX, NBC?

Hey governments, your 'budget' and your 'business', when copied by me, would earn me the title 'Gangster'.

Go away and let humans live, we'll bake a cupcake for your knapsack

Well that sounds pleasant....

You know, its probably for "the greater good..." (sarcastic eye roll)

What county are you in?

Saint Clair

not only do they get endless dollars and no sense, my neighbors are taking jobs as Border Patrol Agents and driving up and down the state highway along the lake for 15 an hour, and I get rubuked by the old folks for not taking a federal job.

1995- no feds
2012- a fleet of brand new GM SUVs and Chrysler sedans, all housing Federal Agents, and recession.

As an added bonus, they have 'agreed' to provide 'assistance' to local law enforcers, who are buying gas masks, flak jackets, and things that go BOOM.

Boomsticks, army gear, a tank with optional Turrets and ALL courtesy of DubyaMoney, ObamaMoney, a lazy and greedy congress, and Helicopter Ben Bernanke.

What will Sheriff Tim Donnellon do?
Kick the Feds OUT of St. Clair County, right?

All these intelligence agencies

Are these positions unionized?


:shrugs indifferently.....

When the people calling themselves 'The United States of America' spend 4200000000000 'dollars' a year, yes, ballpark $$EIGHT MILLION DOLLARS PER MINUTE$$, I don't wonder if teamsters gets a patch on their shirt.

I wonder if I should slice a loaf of bread up for everyone in the land, ten pcs, 100, 5000?

and then hand out the top 3 pieces to the best friends who paid for the big money market ads, and show Johnny Taxpayer that he gets to shuffle the last 1/16 in. of the loaf and try to feed everyone.

Who starves first? The guy at the bottom of the pile

I posted something related

Bump...so much for small

Bump...so much for small gov...

Probably why 2 US official jets were parked up

in Wellington, New Zealand. According to our PM, one lot were heading to Antarctica and the other one was an "intelligence" guy....but he didn't know who. Really? The PM of a sovereign country, doesn't know the name of this person, or who he is?
Our PM is openly selling us out to Mr H W Bush and his cronies.

I'm glad to see someone else

makes the connection between H W and the business plan of the CIA.

Some of this stuff is just so damn crazy.

Hey, I was on top of this the other day...

That means that RP and I are on the same wave length. I keep thinking how much I'd like to have dinner with RP. I wonder if he is thing the same thing. lol


Wonder how many people say that about Tim Pawlenty?

"Gee, now there's a guy I could really sit down and have a stimulating philosophical discussion with!"

I think it's pretty amazing that I got to vote for this guy 4 times. How many other politicians have authored so many in-depth articles on political theory, economics, foreign policy, and are also a veteran and medical doctor? I'm not the most optimistic guy in the world, but it does give me hope to know that there was a guy in Washington who said what no one else would say, even when it seemed like no one was listening.
