Ron Paul Smears
Slain War Hero

PJ Media, by Bryan Preston

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/4/2013 1:27:59 PM

Former SEAL sniper Chris Kyle was murdered at a gun range near Glen Rose, Texas on Saturday. Fellow vet Eddie Ray Routh has been arraigned in Kyle’s death and that of a second veteran murdered at the range, Chad Littlefield. Routh apparently suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Kyle and Littlefield were trying to help Routh deal with his PTSD. The motive in the killings remains unclear. That did not stop former Rep. Ron Paul from popping off about it on Twitter. Ron Paul ? @RonPaul Chris Kyle´s death seems to confirm that "he who lives by

And to think, people were willing to vote for him just so they could more easily smoke their pot.

We really don´t have the facts yet. This is the kind of bad taste and careless, superficial, reckless thinking and jumping to conclusions for which liberals are justly famous. But people who cannot or will not think straight really should not be in positions of responsibility, regardless of how they choose to identify themselves politically.

That´s why Ron Paul will always be a very marginal politician. It´s marginal politicians like that who are dragging the Republican Party down in the eyes of the average American. As an example look at the two dimwit out of the mainstream Republican senate candidates who made off the cuff and stupid remarks to the liberal media about the consequences of women being raped that had nothing to do with the responsibilities of a US Senator. As a result the Republicans lost two senate seats that they should have won. The liberal media will always be out there ready to ask gotcha questions to marginal Republican candidates hoping to elicit a response that will bring them down.

As far as Chris Kyle is concerned, since he repeatedly has said that the Iraqi insurgents have put a bounty on his head, that angle should be throughly explored by law enforcement and the intelligence agencies to determine if the perpetrator or any of his family or acquaintances have had contact with Middle Eastern intelligence operatives or Muslims.

I cant believe Ron Paul said such an insensitive thing like this. Chris Kyle killed enemy combatants in a war . Routh apparently suffering from PTSD murdered Kyle and his friend who were trying to help the veteran.
Ron Paul should know the difference.

Ron Paul has seriously always been an ultra-libertarian nutcase. Those of us in Texas have always known that.

Now I have to wonder if he wasn´t always a lie-beral ´´plant´´. It makes a lot of sense now.

Just go away Ron. You have overstayed your welcome and are wasting valuable oxygen at this point...

Kyle must have known the risks involved in this approach to treating PTSD. He took those risks to help a brother in arms. Now the guy he was trying to help has lost everything he might have had, so it´s natural to second guess the prudence of Kyle´s program. If Paul isn´t a psychologist, then neither was Kyle. Best left unsaid for now, though.

Paul should not confuse those who sit in their little mahogany cubes in Washington, dreaming up foreign entanglements, with those who serve their nation proudly and have no say in the missions. Kyle is a hero, no matter how you slice it. It is the politicians who live by the sword, and the soldiers who die by it. Paul should know better.

My family has always had guns and have hunted with guns and have given guns to the kids when they were ten or so. I have never in my life of seventy two years known or heard of anybody I have ever known who has ever had an accidental or on purpose shooting of another. None at all. Never.

Maybe it´s Karma or "live by the sword, die by the sword" and then maybe it´s just so rare of an occurrence that when it does occur that it is a real chance for a politician to blow smoke that you hear about it for weeks.

Ron Paul is simply another politician who will never let a crisis go to waste like that weenie in Chicago or that play time president in DC.

#18 Why exactly is he a "good man"? A good man would not have even considered saying something so obviously hurtful to the slain man´s family, and just as obviously stupid. Just because Ron Paul as a politician, makes some statements supporting fiscal responsibility, and adherence to the Constitution, does not make him a "good man". How one treats others is the measure of that claim.

Chris Kyle’s death seems to confirm that “he who lives by the sword dies by the sword.” Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn’t make sense — Ron Paul (@RonPaul) February 4, 2013

#18, I´m not a Paulbot, so I won´t push this too far: My take was that he was slamming the wisdom and propriety of Kyle and Littlefield going to a shooting range with a PTSD victim like Routh, not the reputation of the slain war heroes. Good men occasionally say or tweet things that come across the wrong way. It was a major ´faux pas´ to be sure, requiring an apology, but I don´t see the malice in it.

If Ron Paul had said that as a physician he thought that trying to treat PTSD by taking a person with PTSD to a firing range would be ineffective, he would have been right on target, but he did not, instead he went right over the right field fence, unfortunately just as he usually does.

Dittos #23. Just from what we have been reading in the news lately, I question the wisdom of taking anyone who is mentally ill to a shooting range, no matter what their good intentions were. Some things you just don´t do out of common sense. You don´t bring an alcoholic along with you to a bar while you drink in front of them. You don´t bring a nut case along with you to a shooting range and teach him how to shoot better. Doing both could have bad consequences.

Ron Paul isn´t a "crazy old coot"; that´s too nice of a description, sort of like "crazy old uncle". No, rather, Paul is dangerous, and he is sounding more and more like the Left and the gals in Code Pink.

The mushy middle is no place
to find a Republican victory
Washington Times, by Ralph Reed    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/1/2013 10:23:38 PM     Post Reply
Calls that Republicans must “move to the center” reach a fever pitch every time the party loses a major election. No doubt the GOP needs to do a better job of appealing to women, younger voters and Hispanics, but it need not shed its principles. The media trope that the Republican Party is a “Star Wars” bar scene of theocrats and religious zealots by now has become a threadbare cliche. The Huffington Post said after the 2012 elections that the GOP resembles “a rump parliament of Caucasian traditionalism: white, married, churchgoing — to oversimplify only slightly.”

A new poll finds 77 percent of Americans support either delaying or repealing Obamacare´s individual mandate. The extensive survey of 2,076 registered voters found that 28 percent say the individual mandate that Americans purchase health insurance coverage should be delayed, while 49 percent say the mandate should be repealed entirely. Among those who favor delay or repeal of the mandate are 91 percent of Republicans, 77 percent of independents, and 65 percent of Democrats.

A federal judge on Wednesday dismissed a lawsuit by immigration agents who challenged the Obama administration’s program that gives a reprieve from deportation to undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as minors. U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor, who earlier this year had expressed agreement with the agents’ contention that the deferred deportation program undermined their duty to enforce the law, said on Wednesday that it was not within his court’s jurisdiction to decide on what essentially is a dispute between federal employees and their employer, the U.S. government. President Obama implemented the program, called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA

WASHINGTON — If the Democrats are the Party of Treason, then the Republicans are the Party of Ingratitude. Tuesday night on Fox News, in a rare interview, Rush Limbaugh said the Republican Party establishment does not like the tea party because they cannot control the tea party. The Republican ingratitude towards the tea party gets even worse. John McCain, in an interview reported on yesterday in The Washington Times, said the tea party was damaging the Republican Party. Maybe the Republican Party needs some damaging. Perhaps it is time to remind McCain of a little history.

Dear Conservatives: Democrats

The thoroughly entertaining back and forth that erupted this week between New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has captured the media’s attention and focused the political mind on 2016 like nothing has since the night President Barack Obama won reelection. It is hard not to view the two GOP officeholders’ heated war of words in the media through the prism of the Republican presidential primaries. Many conservatives have become so disillusioned with Christie, though, that they recoil at the thought of nominating him to be the party’s next presidential nominee.

Bill O’Reilly tonight faced off with Illinois state representative Monique Davis, who said on a radio show this week that many of her constituents have “suspicions” that Chicago police are gunning down black children. O’Reilly told Davis that she unfairly legitimized a “destructive” rumor, and that she had a responsibility in her role as an elected official not to say such garbage in the public eye. Davis insisted to O’Reilly that she wasn’t alleging anything, just repeating what constituents told her.

For years billionaire Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal has been in a fight with Forbes Magazine over its estimation of his wealth and his position on the Forbes Billionaires list. He even sued the magazine over its 2013 ranking, which placed him #26 in the world. I guess all that expensive Photoshop work was for nothing. At odds in ranking his net worth is the value of his company, Kingdom Holdings Co. As a private equity firm, Kingdom Holdings has exposure to various management, real estate and financial services companies. It also invests in industrial and energy interests.

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - Newport News Police say a local rapper’s song helped link him to a cold case involving a double homicide in 2007. On May 10, 2007, officers were dispatched to the 23rd Street and Orcutt Avenue area for reports of shots fired. While en route, the call was upgraded to a shooting after a victim was found lying on a front porch in the 2300 block of Orcutt Avenue. That victim, identified as Brian Dean, suffered a gunshot wound to the head. Dean was unconscious but breathing and was taken to a local hospital.

President Obama emerged from a meeting with Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi praising him for ushering in serious diplomatic reforms and pushing back against al Qaeda but pointedly did not announce an agreement to repatriate any Yemeni detainees from Guantanamo Bay. Under Hadi’s leadership, relations between the U.S. and Yemen have improved dramatically, Obama said, as the Yemeni people have worked to “produce a constitution and transition to a fully democratic government.” Obama also gave Hadi credit for cooperating with the U.S. on countering terrorism in the region and for helping to curtail al Qaeda’s influence in Yemen.

But, thanks to a new round of joint therapy that continues even now, the couple was able to put the relapse behind them. “They really became a unit, and she feels much closer to Anthony now,” a relative told the magazine.

The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,
