Ron Paul: Federal Government Should 'Keep its Hands Off the Internet'
Sputnik International
The US Federal Communications Commission has made a historic decision to reclassify the Internet as a public utility. Civil liberties groups are cheering, broadband providers are banging their heads, but who's right? Ron Paul may have a surprising answer.

Internet, RIP?
by Ron Paul

Today the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), a non-elected federal government agency, voted three-to-two to reclassify broadband Internet as a common carrier service under Title II of the Communications Act. This means that – without the vote of Congress, the peoples’ branch of government – a federal agency now claims the power to regulate the Internet. I am surprised that even among civil liberties groups some claim the federal government increasing regulation of the Internet somehow increases our freedom and liberty.

The truth is very different. The adoption of these FCC rules on the Internet represents the largest regulatory power grab in recent history. The FCC’s newly adopted rule takes the most dynamic means of communication and imposes the regulatory structure designed for public utilities. Federal regulation could also open the door to de facto censorship of ideas perceived as threatening to the political class – ideas like the troops should be brought home, the PATRIOT Act should be repealed, military spending and corporate welfare should be cut, and the Federal Reserve should be audited and ended.

The one bright spot in this otherwise disastrous move is that federal regulations making it more difficult to use the Internet will cause more Americans to join our movement for liberty, peace, and prosperity. The federal government should keep its hands off of the Internet!

Ron Paul Blames Psychotropic Drugs For “American Sniper” Murder And Other … – BuzzFeed News

Former Congressman Ron Paul, the father of potential presidential candidate Rand Paul, said Wednesday that “American Sniper” Chris Kyle would be alive today if his killer was not using psychotropic drugs.

Paul has repeatedly linked or blamed mass shootings on the use of psychotropic drugs.

“If Eddie Ray Routh had never served in the military, I’m of the opinion that he would probably not have killed anybody,” Paul wrote on the website of his Institute of Peace and Prosperity on Wednesday as well as on his Facebook page. “He would not be imprisoned for life and Chris Kyle would be alive today. Much of the blame should lie with our foreign policy of interventionism and the VA’s faulty reliance on psychotropic drugs for treating the guilt associated with preemptive wars.”

The post echoes comments Paul made last year in a speech to The Independent Institute in which he said “it doesn’t take a real genius” to figure out psychotropic drugs are the cause of mass shootings.

“Just recently we heard about another shooting at Fort Worth,” Paul said in his April 2014 speech. “Second time you know, within a short period of time and soldiers were killed and the articles kept saying, ‘well we got to get to the bottom of this, what is causing this?’ And yet it doesn’t take a real genius to figure it out. Because when you look at it, if you look at the shootings and the various problems on campuses, and who knows what will happen on the one that happened today, but almost always these massive shootings whether they are military or not, occur with the doctors involved giving psychotropic drugs to people who are depressed.”

Paul said when many veterans return from war they realize the dangers of multiple deployments and come to the belief that perhaps the war they are fighting in is “useless, worthless, maybe there is no benefit to it.”

“When individuals come back, of course they are torn, because they have realization — just as I was pleased that they have the realization that a non-interventialist foreign policy pleased the military — what would it be like to go over the 3,4,5 and 6 times, worrying where your next step is going to be and whether you are going to get blown up. Seeing your buddies killed, and not seeing back home a whole lot of concern about why we are there. Just ‘oh yes you are great guys, you are all a bunch of heroes’ and we all wear bumper stickers and everybody is happy about it. But that is a far cry from these people waking up and saying ‘you know, maybe this war is useless, worthless, maybe there is no benefit to it.’ And all of a sudden they remember about kids getting killed, women getting killed, and all the carnage and saying, ‘you know they never did a thing to me, why did I go 6,000 miles?’”

Paul then again singled out the use of psychotropic drugs, saying “now we have a suicide epidemic” and this was all a consequence of American foreign policy. The former congressman added the ultimate solution to the epidemic of soldiers committing suicide was a non-interventionist foreign policy.

“Now I am convinced that soldiers that are put up with that and when they are exposed to it, when they come back end up with a lot of guilt and so they go see a doctor and unfortunately the doctor gives them these drugs and they end up—and now we have a suicide epidemic. And its a consequence of the foreign policy. We are not going to stop this problem by turning it over to the doctors. We need to turn it over to the American people who insist that our government quit getting involved in these kind of wars and exposing our kids to these predicaments they are in.”

Ron Paul: Black Caucus Favors Food Stamps Over Military Spending – Blue Nation Review

RonPaulLike a modern day Don Quixote, Ron Paul is at it again.

In an interview earlier this month, the former Texas congressman and presidential candidate launched a head-scratching broadside attack on members of the Congressional Black Caucus. According to Paul, they oppose military funding because they would rather see more money spent on entitlement programs like food stamps.

Ron Paul Rand PaulAs his son, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky), gears up for a potential presidential bid of his own and goes about the country making entreaties to black voters, the elder Paul seems hell-bent on alienating them. In his mind, CBC members all too often voted for sanctions against U.S. adversaries. They “never get the results that they thought there were going to get,” Paul said.

Himself a staunch opponent of American interventionism, the libertarian fireball blasted the group for its devotion to eradicating poverty.

“I was always annoyed with it in Congress because we had an anti-war unofficial group, a few libertarian Republicans and generally the Black Caucus and others did not — they are really against war because they want all of that money to go to food stamps for people here,” Paul told a reporter.

Ron Paul: Interventionism kills — Ukraine one year late – Red Bluff Daily News

It was one year ago last weekend that a violent coup overthrew the legally elected government of Ukraine. That coup was not only supported by U.S. and European governments — much of it was actually planned by them. Looking back at the events that led to the overthrow it is clear that without foreign intervention Ukraine would not be in its current, seemingly hopeless situation.

By the end of 2013, Ukraine’s economy was in ruins. The government was desperate for an economic bailout and then-president Yanukovych first looked west to the U.S. and Europe before deciding to accept an offer of help from Russia. Residents of south and east Ukraine, who largely speak Russian and trade extensively with Russia were pleased with the decision. West Ukrainians who identify with Poland and Europe began to protest. Ukraine is a deeply divided country and the president came from the eastern region.

At this point the conflict was just another chapter in Ukraine’s difficult post-Soviet history. There was bound to be some discontent over the decision, but if there had been no foreign intervention in support of the protests you would likely not be reading this column today. The problem may well have solved itself in due time rather than escalated into a full-out civil war. But the interventionists in the U.S. and Europe won out again, and their interventionist project has been a disaster.

The protests at the end of 2013 grew more dramatic and violent and soon a steady stream of U.S. and European politicians were openly participating, as protesters called for the overthrow of the Ukrainian government. Senator John McCain made several visits to Kiev and even addressed the crowd to encourage them.

Imagine if a foreign leader like Putin or Assad came to Washington to encourage protesters to overthrow the Obama Administration.

As we soon found out from a leaked telephone call, the US ambassador in Kiev and Assistant Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland, were making detailed plans for a new government in Kiev after the legal government was overthrown with their assistance.

The protests continued to grow but finally on February 20th of last year a European delegation brokered a compromise that included early elections and several other concessions from Yanukovych. It appeared disaster had been averted, but suddenly that night some of the most violent groups, which had been close to the U.S., carried out the coup and Yanukovych fled the country.

When the east refused to recognize the new government as legitimate and held a referendum to secede from the west, Kiev sent in tanks to force them to submit. Rather than accept the will of those seeking independence from what they viewed as an illegitimate government put in place by foreigners, the Obama administration decided to blame it all on the Russians and began imposing sanctions.

That war launched by Kiev has lasted until the present, with a ceasefire this month brokered by the Germans and French finally offering some hope for an end to the killing. More than 5,000 have been killed and many of those were civilians bombed in their cities by Kiev.

What if John McCain had stayed home and worried about his constituents in Arizona instead of non-constituents 6,000 miles away? What if the other U.S. and European politicians had done the same? What if Victoria Nuland and US Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt had focused on actual diplomacy instead of regime change?

If they had done so, there is a good chance many if not all of those who have been killed in the violence would still be alive today. Interventionism kills.

Former Republican Rep. Ron Paul has a few choice words to say about those who do not support war. He is making a controversial claim that the Congressional Black Caucus is opposing war to save money specifically for food stamps.

“I was always annoyed with it in Congress because we had an anti-war unofficial group, a few libertarian Republicans and generally the Black Caucus and others did not—they are really against war because they want all of that money to go to food stamps for people here,” Ron Paul said.

“But when it came to sanctions they just could never vote against sanctions that would prevent war and they wanted to look tough and they would go on with the sanctions but never get the results that they thought there were going to get.”

He went on to say that he does not believe sanctions work against Iran, saying, “I think it does the opposite. So if you have the senators in Iran and then you put on sanctions, people by their very nature unify. If we were attacked by foreigners and you know, have a 9/11 you know, Republicans, Democrats come together because we see it as a foreign source. So you know, this undermines the dissonance in these countries. But the two areas — as a matter of fact the neocons claim the sanctions have done this wonderful good because that is what brought them to the table — but at the same time many neocons say we don’t even want to talk to them. But uh, I don’t believe that they do achieve anything.”

He also claimed that sanctions against groups like the Islamic State are nearly impossible to use effectively once oil or other resources are involved.

“I mean if ISIS can get the oil out of the ground, pack it up sell it, and get millions of dollars to run their so called quasi-government and fight these wars, I mean how, the sanctions don’t seem to be, you know, a tremendous success. Also, they have always used South Africa as an example where sanctions made the difference. But I think that they’re some geopolitical social changes that occur there that made that come about. But they won’t give up, they have to feel good about it.”
