The War on Antiwar Republicans - Hawks have Walter Jones and Justin Amash on their hit list, and Rand Paul will be next

By W. JAMES ANTLE III • April 7, 2014

Walter Jones is the first target. The ten-term North Carolina Republican has emerged as a leading antiwar voice in Congress. As a result, he faces a primary challenge from former George W. Bush aide Taylor Griffin—and a barrage of hostile spending from outside groups.

The Emergency Committee for Israel has launched a six-figure ad campaign describing Jones as a convert to liberalism. “Once upon a time, Walter Jones was right for North Carolina but he’s changed,” says the narrator in the 30-second spot. “Isn’t it time your vote changed as well?”


Next on the list is Justin Amash, whose primary comes nearly three months later in August. “Over cocktails and chocolate-covered strawberries,” Newsmax reports, a group of west Michigan Republicans gathered at a Tudor-style home in Grand Rapids,” eventually settling on businessman Brian Ellis to challenge Amash.


The main event, however, is going after Rand Paul. Paul is unlikely to face a viable primary challenger for his Senate seat, but he is considered a top-tier candidate for the Republican presidential nomination. “Can he win Iowa, yes. Can he win New Hampshire, yes. Can he win the nomination, maybe—and that’s scary,” an unnamed Mitt Romney bundler fretted to Time.

Our greatest ally?

Anyone still doubt Israel's real intentions for our children? They will never send theirs to the wars they coerce us to start. A quote from the Talmud, Judaism's holiest book. "All gentile children are animals." (Yebamoth 98a). Here's another, "Even the best of the gentiles should all be killed." (Minor Tractates. Soferim 15, Rule 10). They regard us as sacrificial cattle put here to do their bidding. The threat of Congress shifting toward a non-interventionist policy is enough to spring 6 figure FRN's against Walter Jones. Remember, their banker ancestors helped create this bogus money.

The Fight

No one said it would be easy.

Each of us should do our part

And try to grow the grassroots in our home states.

Best time is now, not 3 weeks prior.

Share links galore, friends & family!!!

If you do nothing and have never done anything, then you have little to complain about if you dislike the status quo.

Rand is our last shot

I hope all the Rand naysayers aren't plants, and hope they really were just skeptical, and now it is time, the time to get around him. Please Dailypaul let's wake up and go apechit for one last hurrah!!!!!

Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must. like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.-Thomas Paine

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

The Neo-Cons who attacked Ron Paul daily

Are given a free ride on the DP.

Instead Rand Paul, Jessie Ventura, Adam Kokesh, Peter Schiff, Judge Nap, Ben Swann, Alex Jones and the rest are attacked constantly.

Dick Cheney, John Bolton, Paul Wolfowitz, Bill Kristol, Jennifer Rubin, George Bush, Paul Krugman, Eliot Abrams, Charles Krauthammer, Anne Coulter and the rest of the Neo-con scum are given a free ride.

The same Neo-Cons who used to attack Ron Paul daily. Some people even link to Anne Coulter and Charles Krauthammer articles.

Yeah, there are some plants here.

I live in the District just south of (NC-03) Cong. Walter Jones'

Seat (I support David Rouzer for the NC 7th Congressional District, btw), and I LOVE MR. JONES (Have for years), if there is anything I can do to help I will!


I don't like the word antiwar......

If our country is directly attacked, I am all for war. I hope we all are.

We don't help our cause by saying we're antiwar. Makes people think we'll lay down and take an attack.

Instead, we need to be ant-meddlers in other countries business.

I have a slightly different take on the term

A truly 100% defensive military action (when did that ever happen?) would not, strictly speaking, be a "war," because it would be AGAINST a war, hence would be "anti-war."

I am quite proud to wear the label "anti-war."

I'm not anti-war

I'm pro-peace

Do we have any names to attached to that group

of west Michigan Republicans?

Thanks and for the record

Jones voted 'Present' on that bill
Amash voted 'Yea' and Paul (R) and Dingell (D) were the only 'Nay' votes


If Wars Can Be Started by Lies, They Can Be Stopped By Truth.

ot became a donation for Jones thread

And it wasn't correct because the article said the committee dropped the ad, BUT if you look on the Breitbart link and it shows you the votes.. Jones voted YEA.. PAUL was one of two who voted NAY, and both topic posts, your and his, rather take aim at pumping hate and blame for zio-Israel. IMO it's doesn't make Jones or Amash or anyone who voted YEA, 95.4% anything exceptional.

The ad was dropped.. but the hate mill for Israel continues,, and to me, if all your answers and BOOMS are on Israel, you may be programmed to a UN Agenda for global government, nothing wrong with that, just look at the 95.4% that includes Jones and Amash who both voted YES.

Rand Paul voted NAY.
