Is the U.S. Setting the Stage for War With Russia? Ron Paul Thinks So…

28457189_sWhile you were sleeping, House resolution 758 was passed with only 10 in the congress voting “No” in what might be one of the most damaging pieces of legislation to have been passed in decades.

More damaging than Obamacare?

It’s possible.

Ron Paul took to his Facebook page to denounce the resolution. In his own words, the passage of this piece of legislation will set America on a path where we will go toe-to-toe with a formidable foe…

Russia.

Paul has been a light in the darkness for the past 30 years. He’s denounced war not because he’s a limp-wristed pacifist, but because he values freedom and liberty far too much.

Paul has acknowledged the more violent our country becomes, the more individual freedom suffers.

If you’ve been disappointed with Republicans before, this might be just another disappointment in your long list.

Only 5 Republicans voted against 758. So did 5 Democrats.

Here’s the list of congressmen who voted “No”

1) Justin Amash (R-MI)
2) John Duncan (R-TN)
3) Alan Grayson, (D-FL)
4) Alcee Hastings (D-FL)
5) Walter Jones (R-NC)
6) Thomas Massie (R-KY)
7) Jim McDermott (D-WA)
8 George Miller (D-CA)
9) Beto O’Rourke (D-TX)
10 Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA)

Now maybe you’re reading this and wondering if this is all overblown hype.

Take a look at what Paul wrote below. His reasoning is sound, and while you might not agree with him, the one thing you can’t deny is we’ve been a nation at war.

Since 2001 we’ve been engaged in military conflict. So, it’s not that farfetched to think this might lead us into another period of violence and calamity. From PersonalLiberty.com

If anyone thinks I am exaggerating about how bad this resolution really is, let me just offer a few examples from the legislation itself:

The resolution (paragraph 3) accuses Russia of an invasion of Ukraine and condemns Russia’s violation of Ukrainian sovereignty. The statement is offered without any proof of such a thing. Surely with our sophisticated satellites that can read a license plate from space we should have video and pictures of this Russian invasion.

None have been offered. As to Russia’s violation of Ukrainian sovereignty, why isn’t it a violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty for the US to participate in the overthrow of that country’s elected government as it did in February? We have all heard the tapes of State Department officials plotting with the US Ambassador in Ukraine to overthrow the government. We heard US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland bragging that the US spent $5 billion on regime change in Ukraine. Why is that OK?

The resolution (paragraph 11) accuses the people in east Ukraine of holding “fraudulent and illegal elections” in November. Why is it that every time elections do not produce the results desired by the US government they are called “illegal” and “fraudulent”? Aren’t the people of eastern Ukraine allowed self-determination? Isn’t that a basic human right?

The resolution (paragraph 13) demands a withdrawal of Russia forces from Ukraine even though the US government has provided no evidence the Russian army was ever in Ukraine. This paragraph also urges the government in Kiev to resume military operations against the eastern regions seeking independence.

The resolution (paragraph 14) states with certainty that the Malaysia Airlines flight 17 that crashed in Ukraine was brought down by a missile “fired by Russian-backed separatist forces in eastern Ukraine.”

This is simply incorrect, as the final report on the investigation of this tragedy will not even be released until next year and the preliminary report did not state that a missile brought down the plane. Neither did the preliminary report — conducted with the participation of all countries involved — assign blame to any side.

Paragraph 16 of the resolution condemns Russia for selling arms to the Assad government in Syria. It does not mention, of course, that those weapons are going to fight ISIS — which we claim is the enemy — while the US weapons supplied to the rebels in Syria have actually found their way into the hands of ISIS!

Paragraph 17 of the resolution condemns Russia for what the US claims are economic sanctions (“coercive economic measures”) against Ukraine. This even though the US has repeatedly hit Russia with economic sanctions and is considering even more!

The resolution (paragraph 22) states that Russia invaded the Republic of Georgia in 2008. This is simply untrue. Even the European Union — no friend of Russia — concluded in its investigation of the events in 2008 that it was Georgia that “started an unjustified war” against Russia not the other way around! How does Congress get away with such blatant falsehoods? Do Members not even bother to read these resolutions before voting?

In paragraph 34 the resolution begins to even become comical, condemning the Russians for what it claims are attacks on computer networks of the United States and “illicitly acquiring information” about the US government. In the aftermath of the Snowden revelations about the level of US spying on the rest of the world, how can the US claim the moral authority to condemn such actions in others?

Chillingly, the resolution singles out Russian state-funded media outlets for attack, claiming that they “distort public opinion.” The US government, of course, spends billions of dollars worldwide to finance and sponsor media outlets including Voice of America and RFE/RL, as well as to subsidize “independent” media in countless counties overseas.

How long before alternative information sources like RT are banned in the United States? This legislation brings us closer to that unhappy day when the government decides the kind of programming we can and cannot consume – and calls such a violation “freedom.”

The resolution gives the green light (paragraph 45) to Ukrainian President Poroshenko to re-start his military assault on the independence-seeking eastern provinces, urging the “disarming of separatist and paramilitary forces in eastern Ukraine.” Such a move will mean many more thousands of dead civilians.

To that end, the resolution directly involves the US government in the conflict by calling on the US president to “provide the government of Ukraine with lethal and non-lethal defense articles, services, and training required to effectively defend its territory and sovereignty.” This means US weapons in the hands of US-trained military forces engaged in a hot war on the border with Russia. Does that sound at all like a good idea?

There are too many more ridiculous and horrific statements in this legislation to completely discuss. Probably the single most troubling part of this resolution, however, is the statement that “military intervention” by the Russian Federation in Ukraine “poses a threat to international peace and security.”

Such terminology is not an accident: this phrase is the poison pill planted in this legislation from which future, more aggressive resolutions will follow. After all, if we accept that Russia is posing a “threat” to international peace how can such a thing be ignored? These are the slippery slopes that lead to war.

As it’s been said, war is hell. So why is it that the United States has been so intent on bringing hell to Earth for over a decade?

Could it be that politicians are doing what they normally do… looking out for number one?

There’s not enough room to flesh out the unending conspiracies and figure out which ones have a shred of truth, and which don’t.

But you can plainly see, just through a quick analysis of history, the government always turns on its people.

The United States sits on a razor’s edge.

That’s why these past elections were so important.

But it doesn’t look like things are going to get better anytime soon.

At the end of the day, the best thing you can do is be prepared for what might be coming down the road.

That’s why the second amendment is so important.

Don’t let them steamroll you and turn you into another victim of tyranny. Do what you can to protect yourself now!

    Nothing about what this trash in our White House should surprise anyone .
    I am not talking about the color of his skin just his actions.
    He is after all doing what he said + more, when he was put on the Democratic Presidential list. In my opinion he did not have the right to run the meniate he sealed his records. Can anyone here explain why he sealed his records,
    After all, please tell me when a Presidential candidate of the United States of America was allowed to seal his entire life and still be placed on a parties ticket. The smell test has been taken and there is a rotten body smelling up our government.
