    Ok, so a little background on the author A.J.Weberman (apologies for the length of the post-there is definitely something going on here):

    ‘ He was also an activist in the Jewish Defense Organization, said by the Anti-Defamation League[2] to be a militant Revisionist Zionist organization regarded as a branch of KAHANISM, but which professes to be a Jabotinskyite organisation.’ [wikipedia]

    ‘Weberman has also studied the 1963 assassination of US President John F. Kennedy and was employed by the late Congressman Henry Gonzalez of Texas and Senator Richard Schweiker of Pennsylvania.[citation needed] Weberman’s book on the subject, Coup D’Etat In America, postulates the assassination as part of a coup d’etat led by rogue CIA agents Howard Hunt, Frank Sturgis (a contract agent) and David Christ, Head of the TSD of the CIA, angered by Kennedy’s failure to remove Fidel Castro from power. The book includes transparent overlays, as in an anatomy textbook, so that the reader can compare the faces of the tramps briefly arrested in Dallas with photos of E. Howard Hunt and Frank Sturgis. Weberman’s assertion that Hunt was involved in this action led Hunt to initiate a lawsuit, later dropped. Before his death in 2005, Hunt told his son that he had been involved in the JFK assassination.[citation needed]’ {wikipedia)

    ‘Kahanism is loosely defined as an nationalist ideology of dedication and self-sacrifice for Jewish causes, such as physical and spiritual freedom and safety of Jews in Israel and worldwide. The term is derived from the name of the late Rabbi Meir Kahane (1932–1990), founder of the Jewish Defense League in USA and the Kach party in Israel. Based on fundamentalist Jewish beliefs, it influenced all types of Jews, from non-observant to Orthodox and Ultraorthodox; it has also drawn strong criticism and hostility from the Jewish establishment.
    The Jewish Defense League was formed in 1968 to combat anti-Semitism in the United States and to fight for freedom of the Soviet Jews. Not all Kahane supporters were Zionists or even Jewish. However, the term Kahanism was coined later, reflecting the views Rabbi Kahane expressed while he was active in Israeli political life. Chief among these is the idea that the State of Israel should defend itself against Arab and Nazi enemies, and thus should accord full citizenship exclusively to Jews…’

    Thanks Vinnie. The second article was more helpful. However the question still stands-what source based material discredits the article I provided. Yes the article sounds like a disinformation campaign, but the way information is layered online I must be sceptical.

    If Ron Paul is genuine (and I hope he is), then there is a very interesting smear campaign going on that really tells a very interesting story.

    The use of a nazi link is of great interest for a number of reasons.

    Dr. Farrell, Godspeed. Despite the fact that you claim you are ill this time, last week’s green event made you look far worse! Seriously, though, you are the only current researcher in the alternate history area whom I trust. I wish you and Dr. de Hart only the best.

    Anonymous Expose Nazi Third Position ‘Bridging Tactic’ with Ron Paul
    By GIANLUCA MEZZOFIORE: Subscribe to Gianluca’s RSS feed

    The nationalist American Third Position Party (A3P) pursued a “bridging tactic” with the Ron Paul Revolution movement that support the Republican candidate for the White House, according to emails hacked by Anonymous.

    Calling for a “White uprising”, A3P webmaster Jamie Kelso, whose email account was hacked by the collective, claims that his racist forum WhiteNewsNow is “the only W[hite] N[ationalist] forum working hard to form a bridge with the 100 times larger Ron Paul Revolution”.

    Other excerpts show Kelso’s efforts in organising meetings between Ron Paul and other members of the A3P such as corporate lawyer William D. Johnson, chairman of the neo-Nazi A3P.

    Johnson, who in 1985 proposed a constitutional amendment that would revoke the American citizenship of every non-white US citizen, founded the American Third Position along with anti-Semite Kevin MacDonald, professor at California State University, Long Beach.

    “I’m going to go to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) with Bill Johnson,” reads an email to an A3P member dated January 2011. “Bill and I will be meeting with Ron and Ran Paul. I have a teleconference call with Bill (and Ron Paul) tonight. Much more later. Things are starting to happen (thanks to folks like you).”

    In another passage, Kelso, a former Scientologist and account owner of other German Nazi forums, wrote: “I’ll be at CPAC from Feb. 9 to Feb. 12. I’ll send back reports to you from personal meetings with Ron Paul, newly-elected Senator Rand Paul and many others. It’ll be here on WhiteNewsNow, a place that is really starting to get interesting because of the presence of folks like you. Birds of a feather flock together, and we are really gathering some quality here.”

    Kelso’s strategy appears to b connect with the extremist wings of Ron Paul’s supporters to lobby A3P racist policies. He became an active fan of Paul in 2007. He was reportedly attracted to Paul because he believed the Republican’s followers would be receptive to his white supremacist views. He described Paul as “implicitly white” and started to actively organise Paul’s events.

    “The tactic is one of aggressively ‘bridging ‘between our explicit WN members (with our very small numbers) and our very IMPLICITLY pro-White kinsmen in movements like Ron Paul Revolution (with their HUGE) numbers.”

    Paul’s connections with racist supporters have been highlighted by the media in America. The Washington Post reported in January that Paul has been a businessman who pursued a marketing strategy that included publishing racially charged newsletters.

    Accusations of racism emerged as far as 1996 when Paul, at the time ex-congressman and former Libertarian Party presidential candidate, was a Republican congressional candidate from Texas The issue resurfaced as Paul moved to the front of the GOP party in recent months. He walked away from an interview in which a CNN reporter pressed him for more answers.

    In a 1992 commentary in the Political Report titled “A special issue on racial terrorism”, Paul accuses African American men for the L.A. riots saying: “The criminals who terrorized our cities – in riots and on every non-riot day – are not exclusively young black males, but they largely are.”

    A separate article from the Survival Report said, “If you have ever been robbed by a black teenaged male, you know how unbelievably fleet-footed they can be.”

    Paul claimed he did not know who wrote the articles.

    “It’s been rehashed for a long time, and it’s coming up now for political reasons,” Paul told CNN in January 2008. “Everybody in my district knows I didn’t write them, and I don’t speak like that. Nobody has ever heard me say anything like that.”

    However, a Ron Paul newsletter dated 1992 referred to civil rights leader Martin Luther King as a “world-class philanderer who beat up his paramours.”

      Now that’s off your chest, what does any of your post have to do with the issue of a gold backed currency vs govt fiat money?
      What exactly are you implying here?

      • MattB on February 3, 2012 at 5:30 pm

        While I am not an American and have only see a little of Ron Paul, what I saw (and what Joseph has mentioned) was quite likeable. Ron Paul is a backer of the return to a gold standard-hence this article being here. Second, Joseph has mentioned how a return to the gold standard would still keep monetary power in the hands of some elites.

        My reasons in placing this article here are as follows:

        (a) If Ron Paul is connected to the ‘Nazi International’, his policy of a return to the gold standard MAY hint at one of the groups who would be very happy with this policy. It is a sensational revelation if true.

        (b)This may also be an attempt by the Anglo-American elites to tarnish Paul (accusing him of being connected to their factional rival)as they split further from the Nazi International. This may indicate the factional fighting Joseph has been eluding to.

        (c) There may be a ‘Zionist’ connection of some kind beneath this story. Joseph has eluded to a nasty sub plot involving zionism in YTTFG-I haven’t read that yet so I am happy to be wrong on that assumption.

        (D) Further surface research peaked my interest (I have not evaluated this article yet though):

        As I am not greatly familiar with the internal workings of American politics, I am hoping Joseph would comment on this.

        • Vinnie on February 3, 2012 at 11:41 pm

          Thanks for the answer Matt. After you’ve done a little more investigating on your own, I’d be interested to see if you still think that Ron is a nazi.

          • MattB on February 4, 2012 at 3:48 am

            My initial research doesn’t point to him being a Nazi-one of the reasons I was a little surprised to see such articles. If anything, what I have seen of the man has been very much in opposition to such criminal organisations.

            I would like to hear comments from the American contributors on this board in response to the following article:


            If this is rubbish, and I would like to see some solid arguments to prove as such, then my initial hunch that this is an attempt by the Anglo-American elite to tarnish him with the brush of their major rival, the Nazi International, would be justified.

          • Vinnie on February 4, 2012 at 12:09 pm

            Maybe this will be of some help to you. Better yet. Do a search for yourself and see if you can find any speeches or writing or votes that would be actual proof of the lame charges that have been made against him.

    Don’t you think it’s rather naive to confine all monetary control/issuance to the state? You are only transferring the monopoly from one sector to another. What we should have is an open monetary system, where anyone can issue currency (as a service) and let the market collectively filter out inefficient mediums of exchange while retaining and using effective ones. Who is too say that currency should be one size fits all? perhaps different industries, societies, geographical locations, cultures would gravitate to difference currencies then the rest.

    The point is that control of currency issuance should be at the heart of the matter. I respect Dr. Farrell’s opinions/work more than most, yet I must respectfully disagree that state-issued currency should be sought after, along with the proposition that the FED is a private monopoly cartel; advocating this both implies that states would have the monopoly on money issuance which can be just as lethal, and hides the fact that at best the FED is a quasi-private institution, with a revolving door between the public and private sectors (and containing elements of both).

    In fact, I would go as far to say that putting the monetary system debate into these terms creates a dialectical choice between a private monopoly monetary system and a public monopoly system, a situation that Dr. Farrell so often warns against.

    How does anyone know how much “money” should be circulating? What’s the right amount, or does it all amount to who’s doing the guessing? How do they know and why should we trust anyone to make those decision? It is after all just another form of price fixing isn’t it?
    There’s plenty of historical evidence of the failure of unbacked paper currencies if we’ll just study the Continental dollar and the fiasco that accompanied the Greenback as well as the Confederate currency.
    There needs to be a bit more thought given to the idea of market money, where the consumer decides what to accept as payment. Government and politicians or technocrats need to be kept out of the whole process lest the shortcomings once again will be inflicted upon us.

    “Keep your ears glued folks, because there is going to be interesting things, I think, happening in the independent research community this year with respect to 2012.”

    Was that a sly smile I saw there Dr Farrell? You’re right though, there will be interesting things happening.

    • Don B on February 5, 2012 at 12:45 pm

      2012 will be a breakout year for Drs. Farrell and deHart. Big notoriety and big money, and they both deserve it in spades.

    “The government should issue, and circulate all the currencies and credits needed to satisfy the spending of Government and the buying power of consumers. By adoption of this principles, the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest. Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity.” – Abraham Linclon

    Dr. Farrell is precisely on point, ‘on the money’, andwhen he says[implies] that a gold-based money system is controlled by an elite few, he ain’t whistling Dixie. Genuine State Issued Currency (based on faith & credit), as explained by Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln, Ellen Brown, John McMurtry, Stephen Lendman, – and yes, the good Dr. Farrell, is the path to be taken.
