Ron Paul says Bush was thrilled with 9/11

Ron Paul stopped in Ames, Iowa on the campaign trail on Thursday, and used some harsh words to explain President George W Bush’s reaction to the September 11 terrorist attacks.

Specifically, the Texas congressman said that the former president was pretty happy about the events. After all, said Paul, the attacks served as pretext to finally put American troops overseas in what instantly became a justifiable reason for war.

“Think of what happened after 9/11,” Paul told a crowd of around 1,000 in Ames this week. “The minute before there was any assessment, there was glee in the administration because now we can invade Iraq, and so the war drums beat.”

What’s more, said the presidential hopeful, is that a decade later, the current administration is creating excitement themselves over what is erupting with enemy forces overseas.

“That’s exactly what they’re doing now with Iran,” said Paul.

Tensions between Washington and Tehran have been high for years, but talks of a budding nuclear program in Iran has America and its allies up in arms over what could be developing overseas. The loss of a high-tech American drone aircraft in Iran last week has only escalated a stand-off between nations, as Washington and Tehran bicker back in forth in the days since over what the craft was doing in the skies above Iran and whether or not Iran has actually recovered the craft.

Paul has been a critic of both the Bush and Obama administrations, but speaking from the campus of Iowa State this week, revealed that the excuses that each president has used to embroil American forces in overseas skirmishes are eerily similar.

“I think extremists have taken over,” said Paul. “They’re the ones that run the foreign policy and that convinced us as a country to go along with all these wars.”

From Ames on Thursday, the National Journal reports that Paul’s audience was unperturbed by the statement. A reporter with the paper relayed the statements to the rest of the world by way of Twitter, in which one critic in particular, however, shares sentiments about the libertarian-leaning GOP candidate. Former Bush administration official Ari Fleischer fired back at Paul’s statements, saying simply, “The man is nuts.”

Paul’s statements aren’t anything new for the libertarian icon, who has opposed the Bush administration’s reaction and response to 9/11 for some time. During a televised debate of Republican Party candidates earlier this year, Paul put the blame of the attacks on America itself, saying, “They attacked us because we have been over there bombing them for 10 years.”

“If we think we can do that (occupy foreign lands) and not have retaliation, we are kidding ourselves.”

Man Says He Has Proof He’s Been ‘Chipped’

DECEMBER 09, 2011
By Victor Thorn

Last year, retired Sacramento paramedic and firefighter Jesse Beltran says he visited a dentist for what he thought was a standard procedure. Upon waking nearly four hours later, unbeknownst to Beltran, he believes an RFID chip had been implanted in the rear area of his mouth where the lower and upper jaws connect.

During a Nov. 29 interview, Beltran told this writer, “A recent girlfriend of mine that was associated with law enforcement took me to a dentist that I’d never before visited. Without my consent, the dentist used a very unusual looking syringe and knocked me out for between three and four hours. Since I’d been in the medical field for over 20 years, I’m familiar with syringes, and this large-gauge needle looked like the old-style equipment that military doctors used.”

The horrors got worse during this procedure. Beltran continued his account: “When I regained consciousness three to four hours later, my entire chest was drenched in saliva. Supposedly, I had received two root canals and had two teeth capped. But after visiting a different dentist earlier this year, his X-rays revealed that only one root canal had been performed, and no crowns put in place.”

In an extensive portfolio presented to AFP, Beltran provided a series of X-rays and MRI scans that show what appear to be two foreign bodies in the back portion of his mouth. Beltran claims two different doctors have confirmed these results.

When asked if he has experienced any physical afflictions as a result, Beltran replied, “A former Marine told me that similar RFID chips are used by the U.S. military on prisoners in Afghanistan to send and receive information. The device in my mouth is approximately the size of a grain of rice, and depending on the frequencies being transmitted, I undergo nausea, vertigo, hearing loss and swollen glands. Plus, because [I have a] technical background, I can hear a ‘60-cycle whine.’ ”

To clarify this phenomenon, Beltran explained, “This 60-cycle whine is an electrical sound emitted from the device, but with a higher pitch that I hear originating from around my right ear, but not exactly.”

When Beltran visited a local district attorney with his X-rays, he was told, “This was done because of something you know that somebody wants, or they don’t want you to say something.”

The district attorney then told Beltran about S.B. 362, introduced by state Sen. Joe Simitian (D-Palo Alto), which states that “subdermal implantation of RFID chips in the state of California against a person’s consent” is illegal. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed this legislation in 2007.

“Why would there need to be such a law in the first place unless these procedures were already being performed?” asked Beltran.

The obvious question at this point is: Why would someone want to implant an RFID device in Beltran’s mouth? This is where the story gets eerie.

Beltran provided the answer. “In 1991 I was the supervisor for a private ambulance company in Sacramento when we were dispatched to the scene of a highspeed pursuit involving the potential kidnapping of a four-or five-year-old girl,” he said. “The suspect was apprehended and dragged from his car by law enforcement officers and then beaten to death. However, it turned out that the suspect was actually the little girl’s father, and it wasn’t a kidnapping, but a custody issue. So, this child’s father was beaten to death with billy clubs before her very eyes.”

He added: “After I tried to write a report about what I’d witnessed, my supervisor told me to keep my mouth shut or I’d be blacklisted. That’s when the cover-up began.”

Still, why would this incident affect Beltran nearly two decades later to the extent that an invasive medical procedure was perhaps conducted without his knowledge and against his will?

Beltran filled in the final blanks:

“The motive leads back to me witnessing a murder that now affects the candidates (in a local 2010 sheriff’s election) who were in charge of the cover-up,” he said. “Last year, I emailed one of the candidates and asked: If a law enforcement officer is informed of a murder, are they required to report it? Twenty minutes later I received a phone call from one of the officers associated with the cover-up of this murder. If this information is divulged, it will completely ruin the sheriff’s election [in November 2010]. A colleague has also told me that the sheriff’s department and local FBI are behind what has happened to me.”

Although California politicians such as Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Rep. Dan Lungren (D-Calif.) have offered no help, nor has local media, Beltran says TruTV and Jesse Ventura have shown an interest in filming the surgery when the RFID device is removed from his mouth. Beltran has also met with an area district attorney, who has yet to decide whether the crimes committed against him fall under local jurisdiction or that of the PATRIOT Act and domestic terrorism.
