Ron Paul - Inappropriate News Letters
Throughout the years, Congressman Paul has been involved in publishing several newsletters. Some of these newsletters ran for many years and some ran only during the few years between his two times in office. Ron Paul's involvement in each newsletter was limited, and in some cases he only let the newsletters use his name and pay him a royalty.
In June of 1992, an issue of the Ron Paul Political Report was devoted to the sole topic of racial terrorism and the recent riots in Los Angeles. That issue discusses what happened in the Rodney King beating, how the city reacted, and the assaults committed by black citizens in Los Angeles against people who were passing through their section of town and happened to be white. The article concludes by noting that the riots concluded that one of the main reasons that the rioting ended was that the postal service was suspended in the area and the rioters had to go to the post office to pick up their welfare checks.
In 1990 and 1991, the Ron Paul Newsletter ran a series of short articles discussing Martin L King Jr. The articles state that Dr King was known to have plagairized his doctoral thesis, his sermons, and numerous other items. The articles also note Dr King's extra-marital affairs and make the claim that he sought sexual relationships with other male pastors.
In 1993, the Ron Paul Survival Report discussed the first attempt to bomb the World Trade Center and makes the claim that the bombing may have been an Israeli plot.
When he returned to Congress in 1995, Congressman Paul mentioned the newsletters in a CSPAN interview while he noted that remained active during his time practicing medicine. In that interview he stated that the newsletters discussed economic issues and currency issues dealing with monetary policy.
The newsletters surfaced in the 2008 Presidential campaign and Congressman Paul admitted that he had not been involved in some on the newsletters other than to lend his name. He stated that he was not aware of the content of the letters, that the content in question was abhorrent, and that he disavowed the writings. He took a moral responsibility for letters and stated that he had a moral responsibility to know what was being put out in his name.
This statement is at odds with the format of several of the articles which are written in the first person as if Congressman Paul was indeed the author. However, the style of the writing in the letters and the content itself is not consistent with Congressman Paul's other writings and statements.
During his time in and out of office, Congressman Paul published or lent his name to numerous newsletters. During his first term in office, Congressman Paul initiated a "think tank", named the Foundation for Rational Economics and Education (FREE). In 1976, the foundation began publication of the first monthly newsletter associated with Paul, Dr. Ron Paul's Freedom Report (or Special Report).
In 1984, Congressman Paul created Ron Paul & Associates (RP&A), Inc. The organization had Ron Paul as its President, Lew Rockwell as its Vice President (Paul's former Chief of Staff), and Ron Paul's wife Carol as the Secretary. The company published a variety of newsletters and was dissolved during 2001.
In 1985, RP&A began publishing The Ron Paul Investment Letter and The Ron Paul Survival Report. In 1987 it added the Ron Paul Political Report. Another newsletter named Ron Paul Newsletter has run for an extended time, but not enough information has been found to determine an exact start and end date.
Special Issue on Racial Terrorism
In June of 1992, an 8 page issue of the Ron Paul Political Report addressed the recent riots in Los Angeles following the Rodney King verdict. The article discusses the Rodney King arrest and the actions of the city of Los Angeles during the riots in shutting down transportation systems and removing law enforcement from areas where they would be protecting citizens from the rioters. It also discusses the inability of Califonia citizens to defend themselves due to California gun law waiting periods. After that, it goes through a list of violent attacks that took place where rioters attacked and often killed people passing through neighborhoods, reporters, or responders if they were white.
After discussing the riots, the article notes that the postal service had suspended delivery to riot areas. It then states that the only thing that ended the riots when it was time for the welfare checks and rioters were required to go to the post office to obtain their checks.
The article also discusses the actions of President Bush in granting money to area to quell the violence and excusing the actions of rioters as legitimate response to legitimate complaints. The main section that created the controversy stemmed from the welfare check statements and is shown below.
I've got a feeling that there were many more incidents of looting, fires, and violence that we haven't heard about for the simple fact that the media doesn't want us to know about them. Newsmen and editors are protecting us from the truth.
Order was only restored in L.A. when it came time for the blacks to pick up their welfare checks three days after rioting began. The "poor" lined up to get their handouts (since there were no deliveries) -- and then complained about the service.
What if the checks had never arrived? No doubt the blacks would have fully privatized the welfare state through continued looting. But they were paid off and the violence subsided.
In December of 1990, and January and February of 1991, the Ron Paul newsletter contained references to Martin Luther King Jr that claimed that Dr King had committed plagairism in his PhD and in his writings. One article also stated that Dr King was carrying out an affair with another male pastor.
The December 1990 article discussed Dr King's plagairism, stated that he was a communist sympathiser, and was a world-class adulterer.
In a January 1991 article again refers to Martin Luther King as a Marxist and discusses his sexual behavior and plagairism.
In February of 1991, a short part of one newsletter speaks again about Dr King's plagairism and the his sexual conduct with another minister.
In May of 1990, the Ron Paul Newsletter published an article called "The Double Standard." That article discusses a recent demonstration after a black person was killed by white assailants. It then notes that a similar recent attack in which the assailants were black and the victim was white was dismissed as revenge.
The Double Standard
We know about the crimes at Bensonhurst and Howard Beach because of press propanganda and because great oddities took place in each: white on black crime. Virtually inter-racial crime is black on white, not white on black.
When blacks kill whites, however, it's not defined as news. A month after the Bensonhurst killing, points out Jared Taylor, an almost identical crime was committed in the Bronx. A white got out of his car to use a phone. two blacks asked him what a honkey was doing on Tremont Avenue, shouted at him, and then shot him in the stomach.
There were "no marches, no outbursts, no handwriting, and hardly and press coverage." When a black minister who had helped stir up the Bensonhurstomania was asked about it, he said it wasn't racism, it was "revenge."
Renaming New York
In October of 1990, the Ron Paul newsletter published an article discussing a recent rally held by Jesse Jackson in which the group demanded that New York City be renamed to Martin Luther King City.
A mob of black demonstrators, led by the "Rev." Al Sharpton, occupied and closed the Statue of Liberty recently, demanding that New York be renamed Martin Luther King City "to reclaim it for our people."
Hmmm, I hate to agree with the Rev. Al, but maybe a name change is in order. Welfaria? Zooville? Rapetown? Dirtyburg? Lazyopolis?
But Al, the Statue of Liberty? Next time, hold that demonstration at a food stamp bureau or a crack house.
The First WTC Bombing
In the April 1993 issue of the Ron Paul Survival Report, an article was ran titled "The New York Bombing." The article discusses the recent bombing of the World Trade Center and discusses the possibility that the bombing was a setup by Mossad.
CSPAN Interview - 1995
In 1995, Congressman Paul was interviewed on CSPAN in relation to the returning to Congress. He speaks about the newsletters in that interview and states that they discuss economics and monetary policy.
CNN Interview - 2008
In 2008, Congressman Paul was interviewed by CNN and discussed the newsletters. The CNN piece discusses Congressman Paul's statements in which he stated that he found the statements abhorrent and that he did not know who wrote them.
CNN 2012 Interviews
In December of 2012, Congressman Paul was interviewed by CNN and asked questions about the newsletters. Congressman Paul eventually walked out on the second interview after being asked about the articles numerous times.
