James Kirchick is a tweezerhead

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/07/10/like-father...

From Wikipedia -

In 2008, Kirchick wrote about newsletters published under the name of Texas Congressman and Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul. The story, which said the newsletters contained racist and anti-homosexual material, became prominent in the 2012 presidential election. It was later claimed by television station Fox19 that Ron Paul was not the author of the newsletters, although they were published under his name and he has taken moral responsibility for them. A number of other freelance writers were stated by Fox19 to have written the newsletters. The report stated that Kirchick had not responded to inquiries on the matter. However, Sam Stein of the Huffington Post wrote in an article on the newsletters that there is evidence from old interviews with Ron Paul that Paul did write some of the newsletters during this time period, as stated by Ron Paul himself.

In addition, Erik Wemple for The Washington Post wrote an article that included Kirchick's response to Fox19, where Kirchick implied that the writer of the Fox19 article, Ben Swann, was incorrect in his naming of the supposed writer of the "Special Edition on Racial Terrorism". Kirchick also linked to a copy of the newsletter that had Ron Paul's name as the byline.

Tweezerhead is

way too nice. Seriously?? The logical leaps this guy is making to paint Ron & Rand Paul a racist are almost laughable. He can't scrape up an old newsletter to pin on Rand so he's painting Jack Hunter a racist and trying to make the connection there. Kirchick goes so far as to link himself (he also links Jimi Hendrix? and Alana Goodman) as sources in the article. Who does that? Who sources themselves? See, I said it here, here and here with no proof, so it must be true. Guess who Alana Goodman links as a source in her article? James Kirchick. I'm not really sure where Hendrix fits in since he died before the racist newsletters were even published.

As far as Jack Hunter goes, my family's from rural North Georgia and I can assure you his views aren't that "extreme" around these parts. They also seem to be disturbed by his mask. Well, I've got news for them, that's not the dumbest thing I've seen a Confederate flag on.

Don't even pay him attention.

How big is the market for flaming homosexual left-wing and neoconservative zionists? The only people who are going to care about these racist hit pieces are the lunatic far left-wingers who have already been at this for years.

This is why Rand Paul is catering to the religious right. They have been putting up with the race card for decades and won't give a crap about these accusations.

The race card is all these pathetic left-wingers have. It's their defense mechanism located in their anal glands. As soon as they feel threatened their release their racist stench everywhere. Plug your nose and move on with your life.

Yes. You are so right on

Yes. You are so right on this, in fact.

It's just not easy to plug one's nose, sometimes, though.

Thanks Cirocco.

Very sad. Can't say I am surprised though. The sickest thing is that Rand is most likely exactly what he claims he is - an honest guy who is a bit neoconish. His character is 1000 times better than the other senators, but that is what makes him dangerous to the Establishment. Psychopaths only.

You're very welcome,

You're very welcome, Poopsiebuttons.

If I may though -

I think Rand is walking the line between being pure Libertarianism and being accepted by the GOP for the simple fact that his Dad had so much trouble during his terms of public service in Congress. Some fights are best left alone. In the end it's a rather brilliant overall strategy for really changing government from the inside. The elder Dr. Paul (while respected) could never accomplish that.

Oooh.

Poopsiebuttons! I hope that sticks.

I think Ron is right on about pirtenear (Granny slipped that out one day. Translation: pretty near) everything. The PTB hate that. Their propaganda arm is well trained in swaying the masses to override their moral compasses. Anybody that MSM hates is a saint. Anybody they love prostitutes themselves. I will have to stick with my 'fringe' moral compass. Rand has voted for war appropriations and Iranian sanctions. These both are egregious acts of complicity to murder, in my mind. My mind cannot let it go.
Rand also has declared that he wants to define life at conception at the federal level. Ron did not even have this hubris and he is a trained scientist in this very area. If Rand got his way, it would mean that a women, not a man, would be guilty of 'federal' murder if her hormones and a horny jerk got the best of her one night and she popped a morning-after pill the next day. Rand did not mention the use of DNA technology to find the other guilty half of the 'crime'. I really struggle with his ability to critically think on this and other matters.
Although his rhetoric is positive about cutting federal spending, I have not seen a bill or vote that backed up his rhetoric.
I could forgive Rand for all his social conservatism and pandering, but I cannot for the votes for murder complicity.

Can I still keep the Poopsiebuttons nickname though?
I am glad your back at DP. Don't let the trolls gnaw on ya.

My Bubbe (grandmother) had

My Bubbe (grandmother) had one of those words too. Frigiderator for refrigerator. She also used to say, "The whole vorld is shaped like a chick'n". Never did figure that one out. Must be Newtonian physics.

I cannot claim to understand the thinking of professional politicians, but a lot of people forget that Rand is a physician in his own right. He freely admits that he's not his father and Ron's said that his son is his own man.

Even if you disagree with some of the issues you've outlined Rand is still better than 99% of the rest of the assnoodles currently elected to Congress.

Dear Mr KirCHICK should know he also has the right to shut up :)

Well, yes, there's a little problem with Mr KirCHICK.

I'm alluding to his attitude - let alone, his credibility - as a lesson-giver; it seems he just hasn't been able to change his wolf! wolf! wolf! crying song about the Paul's for years now:

http://www.newrepublic.com/article/politics/angry-white-man

(OCD much?)

On the other hand, as for what could rightfully support the argument for the impeachment of one's president and/or a people to cease trusting their parliament who condones legal plunder, he had no problem to radically change his lenses, it seems; help yourself for an informative and oh so noble! read, folks:

(So, everything's fine, all good, still, in direction of the Obama/Biden administration, James? Nothing to really worry about, right? Just checking, ya know)

Or would that be a pathological case of extremely selective memory for James? 8-O

Dunno, I'm no doc. :/

Dang, wish I could help more, ah well...

...

So, yeah, right, Mr. KirCHICK:

Keep spitting, vomiting your group think and Yale-born elitism and pretend you can lecture your fellow(?) citizens, morally speaking.

That might work, who knows?!

I'm interested, sure. Totally. (psst... hint, hint: maybe you forgot to delete some older stuff that doesn't quite fit your current intellectual fraud. Welcome! wink, wink)

Neocon/Zionist shill/scumbag

Kirchik presently works for the "Foundation for the Defense of Democracies", probably
the most powerful neocon pro-Zionist organization in existence (and at least in the running
for most grotesquely misnamed). With a three billion a year budget to work with they
can definitely afford him.

"The Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (FDD) is a neoconservative think tank aand lobbying organization that claims to conduct "research and education on international terrorism — the most serious security threat to the United States and other free, democratic nations. FDD produces independent analyses of global terrorist threats, as well as of the historical, cultural, philosophical and ideological factors that drive terrorism, and which threaten democracies and the individual freedoms guaranteed within democratic societies." Their work is closely linked with that of the National Endowment for Democracy.[1] FDD was created two days after the September 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Ever since its creation, FDD has pushed for US wars against Iraq and Iran – Eli Clifton states that "In recent years, FDD has become one of the the premiere DC organizations promoting more aggressive actions against Iran."

Oh! *slaps forehead*

Oh!

So, that's WHAT comes out of Yale, these days!

Now I get it!

Makes perfect sense! Haha moment!

What a wonderful world!

And its beautiful 21st century "elites".

Aren't we so darn lucky?!

Hey Cyril, I think you meant to say 'A-ha moment'...

but 'haha moment' is good too - I'm going to use that!

Not a spelling error. A Freudian slip.

You see clowns so you think 'haha'. No error there. I think clowns are funny too.

Didn't Gary North come out and say he wrote the

controversial bits?

Off topic:

How come you are turning everything purple?

Did you mess up the code?

Could be, but I've also heard

Could be, but I've also heard the name Lew Rockwell bandied about for those.

I have also heard Lew's name tossed around,

but the newsletters (the "controversial" parts) sound more like Gary North to me. I have never heard either of them take responsibility.
Aren't both of them on the board of Dr.Paul's new Homeschooling project? Unfortunately, it will keep this issue alive until someone 'fesses up.
I believe this issue is the only thing Kirchick can rely upon to get him some publicity.

Dr. Paul is a smart man. I suspect his reticence to speak on the matter is out of respect for his staff and an unwillingness to implicate anyone. Always a class act.
