Rand Paul Scrubs Father's Books From Senate Website

Washington Free Beacon:

Sen. Rand Paul’s (R., Ky.) office deleted a “student reading list” that promoted anti-Israel books from his official Senate website this week, shortly after the Weekly Standard published an article last Friday highlighting the controversial recommendations.

Paul’s Senate website has advertised the list of 17 books as “suggested titles for a student, or anyone else interested in learning more about freedom and the role of government in a free society” under a “students” section since 2011.

While most of the recommended titles focus on economic policy, the list also included books that claim the “Israel Lobby” controls U.S. foreign policy, call for the United States to cut ties with the Jewish state, and argue that support for Israel is anti-Christian and anti-American.

Full story at Washington Free Beacon

Here is the list of the 17 books removed from Paul's Website, according to the Google cache of the list:

  • The Road to Serfdom by Friedrich Hayek
  • The Conscience of a Conservative by Barry Goldwater
  • Human Action by Ludwig von Mises
  • Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

    wow they cut bob murphys book too.

    The Rothchilds Bankers of

    The Rothchilds Bankers have completely taken over and dumbed down the public. I have noticed this more so over the past few years since learning about Ron Paul and the Fed in 2007. I hope Rand is distancing himself from his Dad so he can get elected.

    It is unfortunate that US no

    It is unfortunate that US no longer represents freedom....and sad to say that Canada has hopped on the same bandwagon. The quest for a North American Union is going in place under our noses no matter what we say.The profiteers of this planet are under full steam ahead to save their failing dollar and is being met with major resistance. It is also clear that Rand Paul represents himself (and always has) at anyone's expense even the lifetime's work of his father. The Republicans are so rabid for war that it doesn't matter who is nominated...They'll blow us all up yet. I'm sure the Russians feel safer with Putin at the helm.

    If you visit Maine next summer- y'know, the state where

    you see Maine lobsters on license plates?, the United States' northeastern coastal state where they have lobster festivals where people actually dress up like Maine lobsters for a parade and choose a Maine lobster queen who rides on a Maine lobster float? where apparently some outdoor Christmas trees are decorated with Maine lobsters? - I discovered last summer that if you go into a store in Maine and buy a lobster, it just might be from--- Guess Where! Well, same thing, right? Mexico, United States, Canada...

    When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.

    I suppose it depends where you're trapping the lobsters, eh?

    What a phenominal list of reading material

    That's as good a recommended reading list as I have ever seen, sans rothbard and mosse of course...


    No guts, No glory

    That's pretty disappointing. Rand just keeps selling himself to the Devil continuously. Don't kid yourself. He's very ambitious. He's kidding himself. He's betrayed his dad. I would NEVER have done that. I don't care. At some point, you have to believe that God is in control for allowing these terrible rich elite Rockefellers of the world to have their tremendous power. Maybe Pope Leo XIII was right in his vision, that Satan would have 100 years full reign starting in the 20th century. I'd say his reign is about up, if you start it from that ignominious date of 1913.

    Honor thy father and mother. Rand did not. There is no compromising with the rich elites. They will use him. They will then abuse him as he grovels at their feet. Rand has shown many signs of being a morphed-into neocon.

    I'm sick of voting for the lesser of two evils. I'm beginning to re-think all this and agree with Lew Rockwell---just don't vote at all.

    I take it

    I take it that you have never read the Iron Web.

    You may re-think, as long as you re-re-think.

    "What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

    And half of them were written by Jews - go figure.

    I'm not concerned with this type of move now though.

    He can always stock them in his Presidential Library.

    Glad To See Woods And Murphy Represented

    The Law by Bastiat should be on there as well.

    In his interview with Reason, Rand had said he gives that one, along with Economics In One Lesson, to all of his interns.

    "Bipartisan: both parties acting in concert to put both of their hands in your pocket."-Rothbard

    So what? Don't feed the trolls (media)

    As long as he hasn't scrubbed the information contained in these books from his MIND, what does it matter?

    We all know how the media uses any and everything as ammunition when trying to sully someone's reputation. That means they will sift through every line in those books to find a controversial statement they can associate with Rand. Right or wrong, this is what they do.

    Better for him to just get rid of it all. We know where the Paul men stand.

    so he scrubbed glenn beck from his website?

    Proof that Rand is just another Establishment-Hack.....

    Anyone who would publicly disavow any association with the books:

    . The Revolution: A Manifesto by Ron Paul
    . End the Fed by Ron Paul
    . A Foreign Policy of Freedom by Ron Paul

    ...is in addition to being NOT any kind of reformer, also a lousy, disloyal son as well.


    Rand Paul is just another paid-off, knee-scraping, Establishment tool .....

    Do YOU have all 17 of those

    Do YOU have all 17 of those books on YOUR website? If not, you are an NWO illuminati, troll, Bilderberger RINO!

    That was probably smart. I understand that he didn't just target certain ones.

    Interesting. Most of the

    Interesting. Most of the books deleted from the list have absolutely nothing to do with the Israel issue.

    When is somebody

    going to create the Daily Rand? Instead, of being apologists for Rand's pandering to his idol Israel, and the 'chosen' people he worhips, tell him how you disagree with his appeasing the .063% of the World population. Most of you know nothing about the evil mind frame caused by Zionism, and fail to understand how it will turn his foreign policy position to murderous war. He already supports the murdering of Palestinian innocent people by supporting the Bolshevik state of Israel. As Preston James clearly lines out using empirical facts, 'The neoBolsheviks Coming Soon to Your Neighborhood'. The Police State being created is the same one you see in Israel, and the former Soviet states, not the overhyped Thrid Reich. http://www.veteranstoday.com/2014/07/06/meet-the-neo-bolshev...

    Rand is clever. Hardly anyone knew about Rand's secret reading list buried away on an unread section of his website. But now the word is out! By Rand deleting this section, he has created insurmountable publicity for liberty reading!!

    He's a sly one at times

    Like a few months back when he spouted support for Israel and then used that support to push the fact that we shouldn't be sending money to countries that hate us. He may not be 100% Ron, and there are many things of his I don't agree with, but Rand has many more redeeming qualities than just about anybody else currently on capitol hill.

    Obviously he is trying to

    Obviously he is trying to head off controversy. I think we all see that he will run for president so hes trying to insulate himself from anything people can bring up to "use against him". He really could have left Ron Paul's books on there, you would have to excuse someone for recommending their father's books.

    To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

    The media will use the book list anyways

    Once on the net, always on the net.

    They can use anyone's past against them because pulling them years before, months before or days before will not really be the important part.

    They can also pull up videos of him and use those against him whether someone pulls them off the net or not.

    Just like when Hillarious runs, they have a TON of video to use of her from college and beyond.

    My issue is the fact that the media can sway the sheep towards whatever they want no matter how corrupt or bassackwards a person is.
