Another Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul's 'I told ya so' - moment: Israel-Palestine Conflict Edition

As per "Predictions in Due Time," it's that time again, to check back on his predictions...

As usual, The Remnant's Champ is correct:

Ron Paul - Predictions in Due Time (Original)

This is Ron Paul's famous Predictions speech from April 24, 2002. This is the original video compiling recent images and video to give his speech a chilling effect.

Delivering Breaking Hit News Pieces - http://www.CollectiveCheckup.com

"I have no timetable for these predictions, but just in case, keep them around and look at them in 5-10 years. Let's hope and pray that I'm wrong on all accounts. If so, I will be very pleased."

As Dr. Paul states, as featured in the video, 'we' ARE again, paying to fund both sides of the conflict. The following is by the commie The Nation mag's scribe, David Corn whom & whose opinions I generally can care LESS about, whose most recent propaganda-fame has been to proffer popcorn sessions watching intra-GOP bout by shiit-stirring neoCons & chiding Rand Paul into the fray, intentionally, in the following, he's merely citing what's always been known, as per John Perkins' Confessions of an Economic Hitman: Anglo-American NWO modeled "humanitarian aid" is nothing more than euphemism for no-bid corporatist contracts. Or as the Good Doc has always said: "'Foreign Aid' is stealing money from poor people in a rich country, then giving it to the rich in poor countries."

How America Finances the Destruction in Gaza—and the Cleanup
The US-subsidized Israeli military wreaks devastation, and a US-funded UN agency deals with the aftermath

by David Corn | Mother Jones | July 24, 2014

On Monday, Israeli warplanes fired 182 missiles into Gaza, Israeli ships launched 146 shells into the territory, and Israeli tanks shot 721 shells, with all these attacks striking 66 structures and killing 107 Palestinians (including 35 children), while Hamas launched 101 rockets toward Israel, and 13 Israeli soldiers were killed. That day, the State Department announced that the United States would be providing $47 million “to help address the humanitarian situation in Gaza.” A third of these funds would go to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), which is providing food, water, and shelter to tens of thousands of war-affected Palestinians in Gaza. So once again, US taxpayers are in an absurd place: They are partly paying for the Israeli military action in Gaza and funding the cleanup.

Each year, the United States gives Israel about $3.1 billion in military assistance, a commitment that stems from the 1978 Camp David accord that led to peace between Israel and Egypt. Those billions are roughly divided into two funding streams. About $800 million underwrites Israeli manufacturing of weaponry and military products. The rest finances what is essentially a gift card that the Israeli military uses to procure arms and military equipment from US military contractors. It can be safely assumed, says a US expert on aid to Israel, that all units of the Israel Defense Forces benefit from US assistance—and this obviously includes those units fighting in Gaza. So to a certain degree, the destruction in Gaza does have a made-in-the-USA stamp.

But at the same time, the US government is financing efforts to deal with the awful consequences of Israeli attacks. The UNWRA noted in a July 21 situation report that it is operating 67 shelters that are harboring more than 84,000 Palestinians. It is distributing food (in one day, nearly 55,000 tins of tuna and 16,000 loaves of bread), water, baby hygiene kits, blankets, and mattresses to these shelters. It is removing solid waste. It is running up to 21 health clinics, as security permits. The report notes that UNWRA’s shelters are overwhelmed with huge numbers of displaced Palestinians, adding: “The continuing conflict is having an impact on delivery of basic services. Despite a strong commitment from UNRWA sanitation staff, the Agency is struggling to maintain solid waste management operations in the context of ongoing escalations in violence and high numbers of [displaced persons] in shelters. This presents a potential serious public health risk.” The report also says the UNRWA is trying to educate children to leave unexploded ordnance alone.

ADDENDUM:

If there is a "policy" at all, other than the obvious Ordo Ab Chao Hegelian Dialectic modus operandi of "Problem, Reaction, Solution," at least more econ-academically speaking, at least in terms of US "foreign aid" political discourse, this is nothing more than Frédéric Bastiat's the Broken Window Fallacy, manifested as fascist WarWhore-Keynesianism:

“Ideas are very important to the shaping of society. In fact, they are more powerful than bombings or armies or guns. And this is because ideas are capable of spreading without limit. They are behind all the choices we make. They can transform the world in a way that governments and armies cannot. Fighting for liberty with ideas makes more sense to me than fighting with guns or politics or political power. With ideas, we can make real change that lasts.” ― Ron Paul, Liberty Defined: 50 Essential Issues That Affect Our Freedom

You rightly and properly used the word "Remnant".

Most people are not aware of RP's extensive knowledge and reliance on the Bible. He always demonstrates Biblical knowledge heads-and-sholders about the rest of the speakers when attending the religious conferences.

yup. and he doesn't even have to wear it on his sleeves, because

unlike those jokers, he's a living embodiment of his internal philosophy & principles: no need to advertise, when you're the walkin' talkin' proof ,o)

Ron Paul’s Task: Build Up the Remnant

by Thomas E. Woods, Jr.
June 22, 2012

Few people in public life ever stray from the three-by-five card of approved opinion. On those rare occasions when they do, a macabre ritual of clarifications, retractions, and apologies – a veritable liturgy of expiation – invariably follows. Forgive me, for I have contradicted the holy mainstream. Never again shall I stray from the Biden-to-Romney spectrum.

The world changed on May 15, 2007. Someone strayed from Establishment opinion, and then not only declined to do penance, but actually stood his ground and refused to be intimidated into silence.

That day, in a Republican presidential debate, Ron Paul said things Americans were not supposed to hear about their government’s foreign policy. When Rudy Giuliani demanded a retraction, Dr. Paul wouldn’t give him the satisfaction. He instead pressed his point even harder.

IMHO, one of the most informed (he friggin' reads...a LOT; he works for an oil company traveling from site to site, in between his trips, he'll show you on his vids his reading collection. a really good collection), articulate, and highly intelligent 'internet-libertarians' out there (though he readily admits, he sucks at spelling. lol). Ironically, he's a gay AnCap, discussing Dr. Paul's Christian heritage and the Remnant reference, accurately; worth watching:

This just makes me cry with

This just makes me cry with regret that "we the people" rejected such and extraordinary man.
Our collective karma for this enormous act of ignorance will be great.

hate to admit it, but so true: rarely do I not fight a bout of

man-tears, when watching this particular vid.

it's truly uncanny: just knowing what could've been, just how overwhelmingly, undeniably truthful he's always been, and how accurate his historically based assessments have been, and where and what America and Americans could be... yet, still can be...

yup. all that, and a ball of reality check: the world's run by psychos, being destroyed by psychos, and all good people can do is just live well and develop a parallel economy to simply outlive them, because there is no mathematical way for these goons to keep this house of cards charade going.

and, when their fiat currency reset commeth, it's clear they literally want to scorch the entire earth and can care less about the cyanide-d pool that they themselves will have to swim out of, as frankly they've burnt the forest so thoroughly, what little series of burrows they've dug through, won't save them in the least: they too in the end have nowhere to escape to (unless what the rumors of their "BreakAway Civilization" is indeed true).

though, in some sense, seeing as how most of the technocracy are cruddy shriveling, literally age-appropriate croaking goons, we only have to outlive and out-breed the bastards with more liberty babies, than they can eugenically destroy!! ,9)

but still... there will come an unavoidable entropy point, where the good people of Team Free Humanity, will be put in a position to decide, just what to do with them, to 'remedy' the situation. A day no one looks forward to, no doubt.

Ronald Earnest Paul = no slouch in the wisdom category

Thanks for the excellent re-cap, AnCapMerc.

Dr. Ronald Earnest Paul was my congressman for many years. I met him once or twice in Galveston and Kemah, Texas. But it was his run against incumbent Phil Gramm for senate during the 1984 primaries that made me a Ron Paul fan. (Not to mention his prowess on the baseball diamond! He has the stance of a slugger, eh?

I moved away from Texas for 3 years. When I returned, I found property that was located within Dr. Paul's recently gerrymandered district ( Thanks, Tom Delay!) because to live in any other congress critter's district would have been a gargantuan step backwards into the stone age.

Dr. Paul's appearance on the larger political stage in 2007 will likely be the high-point of my life. I cannot convey to you, my fellow DP-ers, just how buoyed my soul was for the whole year after his initial announcement. (And, btw, Jan Brennan, we haven't forgotten you!!!)

no slouch indeed. but a slugger? why yes! ,o)
