The effort to viciously undercut Ron Paul’s bid for the presidency knows no bounds. Now that the establishment media campaign to ignore away Paul’s successful campaign has failed and he is rising in the polls as the Iowa caucus nears, the neocons are sharpening their knives.
For instance, Jamie Weinstein, who writes for the Weekly Standard and Fox News, has penned an op-ed over at the Daily Caller saying that if Ron Paul’s foreign policy had been in effect during the Second World War the Nazis would have ended up with nukes and would have won the war. It would have been the “Nazi Century.”
If Paul had been president in 1941, such a policy would have precluded America from aiding Britain and the Soviet Union under Lend-Lease. Both countries would likely have fallen to Nazi Germany, or been forced into some type of accommodation with Hitler. And with Great Britain and the Soviet Union out of the fight, the Germans would have been free to consolidate control over Europe — and perhaps next the Middle East — with all the utter evilness that would have entailed.
Then again, a Paul presidency would probably have averted the Pearl Harbor attacks since his foreign policy philosophy would have been opposed to an oil embargo on Japan. But without American involvement in World War II, there would also likely have been no Manhattan project, meaning Germany would have have had an open playing field to develop atomic capabilities first — and then global nuclear dominance.
Could American fealty have followed? However you look at it, if Ron Paul were president during the late 1930s and early 1940s, the 20th Century would not be remembered as the American Century. It would have been the Nazi Century.
Weinstein is following the official version of history in his desperate effort to demonize Ron Paul. He does not mention that without the help of Wall Street and the bankers, Hitler and the Nazis would have remained but another fringe political group in post-WWI Germany. Morgan, Rockefeller, General Electric Company, Standard Oil, National City Bank, Chase and Manhattan banks, Kuhn, Loeb and Company, General Motors, Ford, and other industrialists transformed Hitler and the Nazis into the menace they ultiamtely became.
“The financing for Adolph Hitler’s rise to power was handled through the Warburg-controlled Mendelsohn Bank of Amsterdam and later by the J. Henry Schroeder Bank with branches in Frankfurt, London and New York,” writes the late Gary Allen. “Chief legal council to the J. Henry Schroeder Bank was the firm Sullivan and Cromwell whose senior partners included John Foster and Allen Dulles.”
The CFR under the control of the “ubiquitous” banker Paul Warburg, Henry A. Metz and Charles E. Mitchell was connected to the Nazis through the American branch of I.G. Farben.
The Union Banking Corporation of New York was a Nazi front company and Prescott Bush, the grandfather of former president George W. Bush, was a partner at the Wall Street firm of Brown Brothers Harriman and was a director of UBC. “After 60 years of inattention and even denial by the U.S. media, newly-uncovered government documents in The National Archives and Library of Congress reveal that Prescott Bush … served as a business partner … for the financial architect of the Nazi war machine from 1926 until 1942,” the The New Hampshire Daily Gazette wrote in late 2003.
The Senate’s Kilgore Committee discovered after the war that the bankers and the government of the United States were intimately involved in making Hitler and the Nazis into the menace they became.
In other words, if not for the bankers on Wall Street and in the City of London, American and German industrialists, and the U.S. government, the Nazis would have never reached the capacity to threaten the world, let alone develop nuclear weapons.
Not a word about this from Mr. Weinstein. He would have us believe George Washington’s admonition about meddling in the affairs of other nations translates into an appeasement of fascism, totalitarianism, and the murderous evil it unleashes.
Ron Paul has warned against the concentrated power of the bankers for decades. He is tireless in his effort to audit and eventually dismantle the Federal Reserve, the cartel that allows the banksters to not only control the monetary system but also dominate politics.
Republicans and neocons are not only interested in maintaining the status quo – multiple wars, millions of dead, untold misery and suffering – but they are also anxious to spread their psychopathic wars to new frontiers, most notably Iran.
Ron Paul stands in the way of this. That’s why he is now being compared to Neville Chamberlain. That’s why the real history of the world is ignored.
