Naturally I agree, but to do that, we (meaning the anti-NWO
movement) must start focusing on unifying issues
instead of having pointless arguments all day over whether this or that person within the movement is good or bad.
As Bill Cooper said in the 1980's "Stop fighting with each othe." But, even he could not take his own advice. We are human and likely will continue bickering about less important issues. I have rethunk my idea of someone being "good or bad" for the movement and try to focus on the principals of liberty. Webster Tarpley in my opinion makes thousands of aweseome arguments defending liberty and a few that seem counter productive. His arguments should be given attention, but it is difficult when he tweets crap llike:
"#RonPaul ducked vote on totalitarian #NDAA bill letting Obama send you to #Gitmo govtrack.us/congress/vote.…"
"#RonPaul touts crash of 1921 as model for US future- but what if his #DeflationaryCrash is like 1837, 1873, 1893 laissez-faire nightmares?"
"#RonPaul on #FoxNewsSunday supports "RightToWork" union-busting laws which would destroy only mass institutions that can fight #dictatorship"
"#RonPaul #FoxNewsSunday endorses #CreativeDestruction" as "the answer" to US #depression - ie total #deflationary crash, too bad for victims"
"#RonPaul says Americans have surrendered to the barbaric #AustrianSchool of economics-But those who know reply that one Austrian was enough"
"#RonPaul claims we're all #Austrians now - good citizens prefer #TheAmericanSystem of Politica;l Economy, world's most successful #Hamilton"
There was a Tarpley impostor on Twitter a while back, but this looks to be the real Webster G.
Here were some fair assessments back then:
First off let me state that I am fan of Mr. Tarpley and tune into his show religiously, watch his various appearances of RT, PressTV, and the Alex Jones Show. As a credible author, journalist, and historian, I find his analysis of world events, the geopolitical landscape, and history to be truthful, accurate, and unbiased. HOWEVER, Mr. Tarpley crossed the line on his most recent show (Friday, February 24th 1:04 in) when he outright defamed and slandered Ron Paul. His Twitter account has since been broadcasting additional misguided and misaligned "Deceptions" about Ron Paul.
With no basis what so ever and with NO logic or reasoning, let alone proof, he goes on the say that, "The net effect of the Ron Paul campaign is to be an auxiliary to Romney. The entire structural and indeed political content of the Ron Paul campaign is Help Romney get the republican nomination." This is the pattern he says. One thing is for certain; most Ron Paul supports (like myself) are subject matter experts on all things RP. Like Mr. Tarpley usually is with his analysis, we are students, historians, and investigative journalists, of all things Ron Paul and recognize Mr. Tarpley's senseless rhetoric (MSM has been peddling this drivel for 4-5 days now) and disinformation. Tarpley goes on to further discredit himself by saying, "Ron Paul's technique in the 19 debates has been to screen Romney from attacks" To paraphrase, Ron Paul always attacked everyone else, never Romney. The icing on Tarpley's disinfo cake is when he claims, "The purpose of Ron Paul’s candidacy is to spread the poisonous ideology of Austrianism, of extreme austerity, to make the idea of genocidal budget cuts at the expense of the American people presentable, and to do something for his family. He's a nepotist. He wants to do something for his son at the expense of the activists who believed in him." THIS IS ABSURD. And then he goes on about an "alliance between the Scottish right Masons of the Southern Jurisdiction (RP) and the Mormons."... Tarpley has failed miserably in providing objective reasoning behind his claims, and fails catastrophically in investigating the career/life of Ron Paul (Which would serve to educate him on his misguided and fanciful notions.)
I honestly find Tarpley to be delusional on the subject of Ron Paul. For the life of me I cannot ascertain the angle, logic, or reasoning behind Tarpley's blathering. If he knows something we (Ron Paul supporters) don't, than he should just come out and tell us. But instead he hides behind rhetoric (the MSM is spewing the same drivel) he passes as fact on his radio program, website, and Twitter account. (Has no contact info/email, comments are turned off on his webpage, and he doesn't respond to inquires via Twitter)
If anyone can comment or provide insight on where Tarpley is getting this info from it would be appreciated. I consider Tarpley a vital member of the Info War, but this has been annoying me.
Tarpley...Ron is anti-war, anti-bailouts, anti-zombie banks, anti-fascism, pro-freedom, pro-sovereignty, pro or anti nearly EVERYTHING YOU preach. (Aside from expanding the social safety net, state and local governments public works programs, and providing 0% federal credit for
production to the tune of $1trillion) And yet you falsify this mans integrity, SPIN issues to create a perception of Paul that isn't reality, and equally as important, you discredit your own integrity and character in the process! If your so concerned with helping, with making a difference, perhaps you could reach out to Ron Paul. Have him on your show. Propose your 6 step plan to Recovery. But to defame him does the population NO good, and it does you a disservice in trying to unit people to corrective action in restoring the Republic.
Webster loves LBJ and the New Deal. He is a committed leftist and seems to find Libertarian values unpalatable. I am unsure of his views on the Constitution, I think that someone (Alex) should pin him down on this one interview.
And yours which was the most fair to all parties (as usual):
I don't think Tarpley's credibility is in question. Rather I think this is a case where his emotional hostility to Austrian School libertarianism has simply clouded his judgement to such an extent that he's unable to assess Ron Paul objectively.
It's no mystery that I share much of Tarpley's disdain for the Austrian School approach to economic reform. However, I'm not so blinded by my own ideological passion that I'm unable to see the forest for the trees.
And for me it all comes down to this: a vote for Ron Paul is a vote against World War III and against all of the Nazi-style police state measures that have been enacted since 9/11, while a vote for any of the other major party candidates is a vote for World War III and for all of those police state measures.
If Tarpley would simply acknowledge this and stop looking for excuses to impugn Paul's motives, I'm convinced his criticism of Paul's economic program would be viewed by many in a much more constructive light.
Yet there some in this forum (not you) who apparently are against us shifting our focus thusly. Hmm, I wonder why?
We are all just passionate about liberty : ) But really, we have been through so much disinfo, misinfo, military psop crap that tensions are high. I would recommend people take a step back and give constructive criticism rather than escalating rhetoric. I of course always take my own advice...NOT!
Basically Tarpley believes in a more socialist society than Paul and that causes friction. I do also believe that Tarpley's methods in dealing with these different philosophical point of views are very un-Tarpley. But, yeah, please stop bshing each other guys...the enemy ain't each other.
