The Daily GOP Ignominious: Ron Paul In Defense of Putin And Ukrainian Separartist

For some reason Ron "Legalize Heroin" Paul is again on the conservative talking-head circuit.  

Life for the rest of this year, or at least until the November Mid-term Elections will be hard to stomach. Sarah Palin is filling the airways with her exclusive brand of Frankenstein Monster drivel. Alan West is filling clean-air with complete insanity on any topic he feels will garner attention. Rick Santorum continues on his anti-gay crusade. Newt Gingrich is fanning the fires of combat between Rand Paul and Chris Christie. I might even have heard Herman Cain may come out of obscurity for a run for the GOP nomination. And, as per our lede above, Paul is on the "Zany Trail" with thought and rhetoric only concoct-able via the mind of Ron Paul.

Before, The Raw Story piece, below, let's refresh on Dr. Paul.

I probably never used those words, you put those words someplace..."  What? 

Another crack at the whacked out one from Chris Matthews, MSNBC.  Do you think the man could simply answer the questions? Why does he and his some have deep issue with answering questions?

On Paul and Edward Snowden. It should be noted we heard not one word from either Paul after the 2001 commencement of INTEL activities out of the 9/11 attacks. I do not recall any Ron Paul response to the 2006 revelations of  monitoring facilities shared by the NSA and AT&T (in San Francisco).

Yet, a convenient truth regrading US INTEL provided the Ron Paul admirer, Snowden, and the shifty and evasive Paul opportunity to make a flawed political argument.  He argues that he fears for Snowden's life because the US government might kill him with a cruise missile or drone.  WHAT?

He supports his argument with common Libertarian rhetoric and typical Paul zaniness via positing about the Fourth Amendment of the US Constitution. Isn't it amazing conservatives argue for strict interpretation of the Constitution when they wish to advance their positions. When is the last time, and how many times, have you heard an American conservative yelling about the unfulfilled verbiage related to the American Revolution that reads, "All men are created equal?"  

Paul yelps and rants about US extra judicial executions against an American citizen who via the Internet exhorted and recruited potential combatants against the US. His argument by extrapolation also includes US citizens who have journeyed to the war zones to join Al Qaeda and other anti-US militant groups.  Am I to think it wrong for the US military and INTEL agencies to take them out before they are turned into individual carriers and deliverers of ordinance for killing and maiming US citizens? 

Would Paul speak unfavorably if actionable INTEL yielded information that could have prevented Timothy McVeigh's attack on the Oklahoma City Federal Building? How about actionable INTEL that could have prevented the Boston Marathon Bombing? The perpetrators in both massacres could have been stopped via extra judicial execution. Would you have pushed the button to stop either attack before petitioning a US Court? Yes, Paul's drivel is hard to take and even harder to understand.

While some can sit for hours and listen to Ron Paul's sophisms, and zaniness, know the video is a bit long. But, his true flavor is only revealed if you give a few minutes for absorption of his complete mind-blowing gobbledygook.

Ron Paul Worried US  Might Kill Snowden With A Drone......

OK, so Paul as a libertarian icon spews wackiness with each public appearance. Therefore, we should not in any way be surprised he has come to the defense of Putin and Ukrainian rebels regarding the death of Malaysian Airlines #17 and the deaths of all aboard. 

MH17: ‘Who Would Benefit The Most?’ – Ron Paul

Paul responds to questions from Newsmax with answers that can only come from his wacky brain. "....who would benefit most?"  

A competent and seriously probing interviewer would have immediately asked Paul: "Well Dr. Paul, who is on record for total glee about shooting down Ukrainian military planes within the past two weeks?" Even the twisted and evasive Paul would be hard pressed to disavow the fact Ukrainian "separatist" and select appointees from Moscow perpetrated the acts of war. Paul doesn't even allow his mind to venture into an inept mistaken downing of the plane by Putin supported operatives.  Or, quite probably Paul's love fest with Putin simply blocks him from rational thought regarding the now deceased MH#17 and all aboard. 

‘Who Would Benefit The Most?’

Alas, again we error. We posited from the premise Newsmax is about true journalism. We also failed to recognize delivery of messages, no matter how zany, to conservative viewers means Paul fulfilled his role admirably.

Give The Raw Story (Newsmax) piece a read and watch.

Former Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) recently defended Russian President Vladimir Putin against critics in the United States who had said that he was complicit in the deaths of nearly 300 people because because Russian weapons were likely used to shoot down a Malaysian Airlines plane. 
“Everybody’s angling to propagandize and make their position known,” Paul told Newsmax on Friday. “So, I think it would be unwise to say, ‘The Russians did or the Ukraine government did it or the rebels did it.’” 
“Who would benefit the most from this? And of course, if it’s blamed on Russia, then of course, the Ukraine government would get the most benefit,” he explained. “Since Russia would have the least benefit, I think Putin is a little bit smarter than that. I don’t think he would ever come close to participating in act like this.”
