Ron Paul says chemical attack in Syria was a ‘false flag’


Former US congressman Ron Paul has said that a reported chemical weapons attack in Syria was a “false flag” likely carried out by the US-backed militant groups.

Washington has accused the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad of launching a chemical attack against militant strongholds on August 21, and is preparing for what it calls a retaliatory military response.
“We are not really positive who set off the gas,” Paul, a long-time Republican representative from Texas, said during a Fox News interview filmed Wednesday.
“The group that is most likely to benefit from that is al-Qaeda. They ignite some gas, some people die and blame it on Assad,” he noted.
Paul said that the case for a military intervention in Syria resembles the scenario used prior to the 2003 invasion of Iraq when the US accused the Saddam Hussein regime of having an active “weapons of mass destruction” (WMD) program. The intelligence was later discredited.
“Just look at how many lies were told us about Saddam Hussein prior to that buildup. More propaganda. It happens all the time,” he stated. “I think it’s a false flag. I think really, indeed,” Paul said, referring to the reported use of chemical weapons in Syria.
The US released an intelligence report on Friday claiming the Syrian government was responsible for the chemical attack. The Syrian government has strongly rejected the allegation.
On Saturday, President Barack Obama, who had previously described the use of chemical weapons as a “red line”, announced that he had decided Washington should attack Syria. The president, however, said he would seek congressional approval for an attack.

Obama impeachment bill gaining steam

By Jeffrey Phelps,

Hoping to soon pass committee and make it to the house is HCR 107, a bill threatening the possibility of the impeachment of the President of the United States for high crimes and misdemeanors, now thrust into the spotlight.

Citing a demand Wednesday that Obama regain respect for the War Powers Act, constitutional laws that restrict a President from waging a war without first receiving the approval of the people and its Congress, was the architect of the legislation, 9-term North Carolina Congressman, Walter Jones.

Thanking the most popular internet radio show and its host, Alex Jones, was Congressman Jones, grateful for the opportunity to speak to the perfect audience for gaining support and momentum for this type of bill. One that already has multiple co-sponsors.

After all, it was Ron Paul and his supporters who started the modern Tea Party on the very same radio show in 2007, with dedicated listeners and supporters that helped the movement eventually gain national prominence in the 2010 mid-terms, with many ‘unsuspecting’ upsets and likely more on the way.

Stating the need to reign the Peace Prize White House in from continuing the constant, deafening pounding on the drums of war, the Congressman used Libya as a prime example, alleging the constitution explicitly states something the government has mysteriously allowed a free pass on for far too long…Article II, Section 4 of the US Constitution. Alex Jones added Article I, Section 8, Clause 11.

In order to garner approval for the actions taken against Gaddafi in Libya, for instance, Obama went even one step further by openly waging a war, with US troops and equipment, with only an OK by the UN, again declaring Congress totally irrelevant.

Even Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta recently reiterated the startling sentiments in an Armed Services Committee meeting, ones he shared a couple months earlier, while echoing the administration’s open disrespect for the law and arguing for the UN’s authority, over the US, to use the US military overseas, for its own agenda. Open and clear violations that could present a clear and present danger to US national security.

Especially after such egregious acts of war taken by the last few successive administrations, with 2 or 3 panels of experts on the constitution available for testimony, Congressman Jones is looking to fashion a hearing by July, before the committee moves it to the floor.

Ron Paul Supports Bill To Impeach Obama

Ron Paul Co-Sponsors Obama Impeachment Bill

Ron Paul has co-sponsored a bill which would impeach Obama for going to war without getting congressional approval after he sent troops into Libya to overthrow Gadaffi.

In the H.CON.RES.107.IH bill it gives the following description for it’s conception,

“Expressing the sense of Congress that the use of offensive military force by a President without prior and clear authorization of an Act of Congress constitutes an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under article II, section 4 of the Constitution.”

The architect of the bill Walter Jones was the Congressman who recently questioned Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta if the president would get permission from Congress to go to war.

However Panetta through a number of meetings has continue to affirm his believe that the president can do what he wants so long as there is enough fear or threat.

Ron Paul has also voted for bills which he felt he was 100% behind and with such a big name supporting the bill it is more likely it can now get more co-sponsors.

It shouldn’t be a surpirse that Ron Paul signed the bill to impeach Obama after comments he made last year about the killing of Anwar al-Awlaki in which he said,

“I put responsibility on the president because this is obviously a step in the wrong direction,”

“We have just totally disrespected the Constitution.”

In reply to a question he was asked about Obama Ron Paul said,

“I think the impeachment process would be possible,”

The mainstream media have not  said anything about the bill and are unlikely to do so any time soon which is why we need to make sure this goes viral.

If more people in congress co-sponsor this bill it will force either an impeachment or a change in attitude from an administration which believes Congress is ceremonial.

Please share this and tell everyone that Ron Paul is co-sponsoring  the bill.

Ron Paul Has Been Quietly Piling Up Delegates – For a Brokered Convention?

Romney Nomination in doubt – Brokered Convention likely

White Out Press
April 25, 2012

Two networks yesterday, CNBC and MSNBC, broadcast a little known fact – Ron Paul appears to be winning the Republican nomination for President. When the popular Texas Congressman repeatedly assured supporters that the race was about delegates, not beauty contests, he apparently knew what he was talking about. Now, after three more states locked in delegates to the GOP nominating convention – CO, MN and IA – indicators point to a brokered convention with a possible, even probable, Ron Paul victory.

Mitt Romney in a panic

The only report announcing the news of another Paul victory yesterday was the Doug Wead Blog. That write-up, which included the headline, ‘Romney in a Panic’, was picked-up and reprinted by a number of independent news outlets like RT News and The Daily Paul. Wead’s conclusion is based on a number of factors. First and foremost, Ron Paul continues to win more delegates than Mitt Romney during each state’s respective slating processes. Additionally, the writer points to drastic, last-minute changes to GOP procedure showing an attempt to limit the Paul vote. Some measures include a new poll tax in Washington and robo-calls in New York telling Republican voters that only Mitt Romney remains in the race.

What has the GOP power-brokers and their candidate in such a panic? In three short words – Colorado, Minnesota, Iowa.

Keep in mind that every major US news outlet continues to show Texas Congressman Ron Paul in last place for the GOP nomination and with only 75 delegates. View Politico’s delegate tracker as an example. They show Rep. Paul winning 3 delegates in Colorado, 17 in Minnesota and 1 in Iowa. Those networks however, have based their numbers on which candidate each state’s delegates arepledged or likely to vote for. The more important number is who they actually do vote for. And in that race, the only race that matters, Ron Paul is shocking the political world. Continue reading
