Ron Paul Warned About Arming The BLM…In 1997


This article was originally published at The Daily Sheeple

In 1997, then-Congressman Ron Paul gave a passionate House speech that was aired on C-SPAN.

He spoke about the reasons Americans fear the government and the “police state mentality that prompted Ruby Ridge, Waco and many other episodes of an errant Federal Government”:

Dr. Paul certainly seems to be ahead of his time, and has a talent for predicting the future.

    That is why one must study the past, understand events, watch what is actually happening instead of “listening” to what is said; there is a reason for the saying “Action speaks louder then words”.
    I know there are a lot of quotes below this, but most of them are from people recognized as great thinkers. They used critical thinking on a daily basis. Others are from those who used government and propaganda to control thinking.

    I do NOT believe that OK should have ever apologized for Mr. Bundy’s words; first he should have recognized that MSN – being part of a cartel media – LIES, makes up stuff, rearranges stuff to portray whatever they are using on the “masses” to control their thoughts. Second it should have been recognized that they have been using “prejudice” as a way to control thinking, ours and everyone elses. Do NOT fall for that or YOU are also being controlled and manipulated.

    It disappointed me greatly.

    Some questions I have had concerning Ron Paul, Judge Andrew Napolitano, others like them – and even here – is WHY have none of you ever filed charges for the crimes being committed – whatever “station” in life, politics that criminal holds.

    I have tried to make my way through constitutional law since none of you seem to support the US Constitution in all ways available to you because it is as if you believe it is “gone”. It is NOT gone, it is just not enforced. Enforcement does not always equal “force” but does here in the USA equal LAWS and charges, and courts. Do not use the excuse of corrupt judges because we all know that judges are ALLOWED to keep their positions ONLY as long as they use “GOOD BEHAVIOUR” in the courtrooms. That it is NOT the executive or legislative branches, and definitely not the
    judicial that decides if a behaviour is “good” or not. The US Constitution tells us EXACTLY what judges are allowed to do. That the PEOPLE are the deciders of the guilt or innocence, if a law is bad and needs to be removed, and IF a judge is using “Good Behaviour” in the courtroom.

    Why have I not done this myself, because I cannot make it through a “progressive” constitutional law class and accept as “truth” the lies and changed made by them “interpreting the US
    Constitution – instead I merely show the instructor where the framers, etc say differently and am soon removed from my classes. Ex: 3 weeks on the US Constitution, 8 weeks on the “unwritten” constitution – actual major prestigious college constitutional law course. I will not allow
    them to lie as if I accept those teachings as truth, it would soon be having a negative propagandist affect on my thinking.

    ALL law students MUST study on their own as what is being taught today is propaganda and lies, much like the “core”.

    “Abuse of words has been the great instrument of sophistry and chicanery, of party, faction, and division of society.” John Adams

    “Reason and free inquiry are the only effectual agents against error… They are the natural enemies of error, and of error only… If free enquiry be restrained now, the present corruptions will be protected, and new ones encouraged” Thomas Jefferson

    ”The opinions of men are not the object of civil government, nor under its jurisdiction.” Thomas Jefferson

    “If everybody is thinking alike, then somebody isn’t thinking.” Gen. George Patton

    “Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.”
    Joseph Goebbels, Minister of Propaganda, Nazi Germany

    “In some of its more lunatic aspects, political correctness is merely ridiculous. But in the thinking behind it, there is something more sinister which is shown by the fact that already there are certain areas and topics where freedom of speech, in the sense of the right to open and frank discussion, is being gradually but significantly eroded” Judge Neil Denison

    “You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.” Ronald Reagan

    And “Trust, but verify.” And “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” (End Ronald Reagan quotes)

    “Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual”. Thomas Jefferson

    “No power on earth has a right to take our property from us without our consent.” John Jay, first Chief Justice of the United States

    “Whenever the legislators endeavor to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any further obedience and are left to the common refuge, which God hath provided for all men, against force and violence.” John Locke, 2nd Treatise on Government.

    “Conspiracy theory” was born to describe anything that questions official, establishment positions. Problem is, in the realm of establishment positioning, by definition, everything is conspiracy, putting the term conspiracy theory in the same league as “wet water”.

    “Politicians brought the Nazis to power and started the war. They are the ones who brought about these disgusting crimes.” Karl Doenitz, German admiral and would-be fuehrer after Hitler

    “They that can give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety”. Ben Franklin, 1755, to the Pennsylvania State Legislature

    “The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime, and the punishment of his guilt”. John Philpot Curran (1750-1817), Irish lawyer and politician. Speech, July 10, 1790, Dublin.

    “All restraints upon man’s natural liberty, not necessary for the simple maintenance of justice, are of the nature of slavery, and differ from each other only in degree”. Lysander Spooner – “Trial by Jury”

    ”The basic test of freedom is perhaps less in what we are free to do than in what we are free not to do. It is the freedom to refrain, withdraw and abstain which makes a totalitarian regime impossible”. Eric Hoffer, “The Passionate State of Mind”, p 176

    “Too many people are only willing to defend rights that are personally important to them. It’s selfish ignorance, and it’s exactly why totalitarian governments are able to get away with trampling on people. Freedom does not mean freedom just for the things I think I should be able to do. Freedom is for all of us. If people will not speak up for other people’s rights, there will come a day when they will lose their own”. Tony Lawrence

    ”He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent which will reach to himself.” Thomas Paine (1737-1809), Dissertation on First Principles of Government, 1795

Quoted in William L. Shirer, “Education in the Third Reich,” ch. 8, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich (1959)

    The history of liberty is a history of resistance. The history of liberty is a history of limitations of governmental power, not the increase of it. Woodrow Wilson (yeah, I know he was a huge part of the start of the destruction of our nation. He lamented his actions at the end though.)

    ”I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations”. James Madison

    ”The people never give up their liberties, but under some delusion”. Edmund Burke

    ”In order for an act to be a crime, libertarians say, someone must be harmed – there must be a victim. Anything that’s peaceful, voluntary, and honest should be tolerated regardless of whether we agree with it. Part of the price of our own freedom is allowing others to be free”. Scott Banister

    “There is nothing new in the realization that the Constitution sometimes insulates the criminality of a few in order to protect the privacy of us all”. Antonin Scalia, Associate Justice, US Supreme Court. Majority opinion in 6-3 ruling that refused to expand police powers to search or seize evidence that they suspect may be stolen, 3 Mar 87

    “The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground.” Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)

    “I would remind you, that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And… moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue”. Barry Goldwater

    ”The prohibition is general. No clause in the constitution could by any rule of construction be conceived to give congress a power to disarm the people. Such a flagitious attempt could only be made under some general pretence by a state legislature. But if in any blind pursuit of inordinate power, either should attempt it, this amendment may be appealed to as a restraint on both”. William Rawle, “A View of the Constitution of the United States of America” (1829)

    “Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest”. Mahtma Gandhi, Indian Political Leader

    ”The strongest reason for the people to retain their right to keep and bear arms is as a last resort to protect themselves against tyranny in government”. Thomas Jefferson

    “The militia is the dread of tyrants and the guard of freemen”. Gov. R. Lucas, former Major General of the Ohio Militia, 1832

    “In Germany they first came for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a protestant. Then they came for me and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.” Reverend Martin Niemoller, Germany, 1930’s

    Stay Safe everyone!

    So Ron, Judge Napolitano, as many times I have asked you have never answered why you did not use our laws to go after the criminals and traitors within our governments – WHY NOT?

    Using the system against itself has never worked. Ron Paul used the exposure of political status to educate millions about federal corruption, and he did this well. It was not his job to defeat the NWO single handed. That job goes to ALL OF US.
