CONGRESSMAN RON PAUL'S FAREWELL ADDRESS
September 19, 1984
Part II

Dear Friend of Radio Liberty,

"I have trouble believing that the foreign policy of the past 70 years has served the best interests of the United States . . . The last two wars were fought without formal declaration and without the goal of victory in mind. . . . [l]

We arm Jordan and Egypt, rescue the PLO (on two occasions), and guarantee that the America(n) taxpayer will be funding both sides of any armed conflict in the Middle East. . . . [2]

We condemn the use of poison gas by Iraq at the same time we aid Iraq, along with the Soviets, in preventing an Iranian victory. . . . We allocate low-interest loans through the Export-Import Bank to build a pipeline for Iraq, giving huge profits to Shultz Bechtel Corp., while hurting our domestic oil producers. . . . [3]

Our official policy currently is to be tough on communism, but at the same time promote low-interest loans, allowing Red China to buy nuclear technology, F-16s, and other military technology. . . . We participate in the bailout of bankrupt Argentina as she continues to loan money to Castro's Cuba, which then prompts us to send men, money and weapons to counteract the spread of communism formed by Castro. . . . [4]

We subsidize Red China's nuclear technology; at the same time, we allow Jane Fonda to ruin ours. . . . [5]

Praising the greatness of the Vietnam veterans and honoring them can never remove the truth of our failed policy that took us there. Resurrecting heroes will never erase the pain and suffering of an interventionist foreign policy that prompted unnecessary military activities and a no-win strategy." [6]

I began my commentary on Congressman Ron Paul's Farewell Address to Congress (1984) last month, and will continue my analysis in this, and at least one subsequent letter, because the information that Congressman Paul presented explains many of the puzzling events that are taking place today.

Congressman Paul's comments are reproduced in bold type, my analysis is printed in italics. I begin this month's analysis at the point where Congressman Ron Paul addressed the Speaker of the House of Representatives for the second time:

"Mr. Speaker, I would like to take some time to point out some of the contradictions that I have observed in my four terms in the Congress. These I have found frustrating and exasperating and, if others agree, possibly this recognition will someday lead to policies designed to correct them. I find these contradictions in three areas: foreign policy, economic policy and social issues.

I have trouble believing that the foreign policy of the past 70 years has served the best interests of the United States. The policy of international intervention has been followed during this time, regardless of the party in power. The traditional American policy of strategic independence and neutrality based on strength has been replaced by an international policy of sacrifices, policy that has given us nearly a century of war. The last two wars were fought without formal declaration and without the goal of victory in mind. There are many specific examples to show how irrational this interventionist policy is."

Congressman Ron Paul's reference to "the foreign policy of the past 70 years" referred to America's involvement in World War I. Why did the U.S. enter that senseless war? Because Colonel Edward Mandell House, J.P. Morgan, and several other members of the Brotherhood of Darkness (the Spiritual Hierarchy) propagandized the American people, and convinced them World War I would be the "War to End All Wars." Nothing could have been further from the truth. Why did the Spiritual Hierarchy foment World War I? Because they hoped the carnage would convince the survivors they must surrender their national sovereignty, and join the "League of Nations." 125,000 Americans died in that senseless war, and twice that number were wounded. [7]

"We pump $40 billion a year into the Japanese economy by providing for essentially all of Japan's defense. At the same time, Japan out-competes us in the market, in effect subsidizing their exports, which then undermines our domestic steel and auto industries. The result: greater deficits for us, higher taxes, more inflation, higher interest rates, and a cry by our producers for protectionism. We insist that Western Europe take our Pershing missiles. We get the bill, and the hostility of the people of Western Europe, and then act surprised that the Soviets pull out of arms negotiations and send more modern nuclear submarines to our coastline. It's a sure guarantee that any conflict in Europe - even one between socialist nations - will be our conflict."

U.S. troops are still stationed in Japan, the U.S. continues subsidizing Japan's defense, Toyota has transferred a large component of their manufacturing facilities to the United States, and will soon replace GM as the largest automobile manufacturer in the United States. In addition, the BOD has transferred most of our industrial production to other nations. Why did that happen? Because the Global Elite (the BOD- Brotherhood of Darkness) want to raise the standard of living in other countries, and lower the standard of living in the United States. To verify that statement, I suggest you obtain a copy of the transcript, "The New Order of the Barbarians," and a copy of the Earth Charter. Both are available from Radio Liberty. [8]

"Loyally standing by our ally Israel is in conflict with satisfying the Arab interests that are always represented by big business in each administration. We arm Jordan and Egypt, rescue the PLO (on two occasions), and guarantee that the America(n) taxpayer will be funding both sides of any armed conflict in the Middle East. This policy prompts placing Marines, armed with guns without bullets, between two warring factions. Our F-15s shooting down our F-5s in the Persian Gulf War is our idea of neutrality and getting others to test our equipment. America's interests are forgotten under these circumstances."

Why does the U.S. State Department usually finance both sides in foreign wars? Because most of the highly placed State Department officials are members of the Council on Foreign Relations which was organized in 1921 as a front organization for the Round Table which was a front organization for Cecil Rhodes' secret society that was controlled by the Spiritual Hierarchy. [9] Why does the BOD promote foreign wars? Because they believe the carnage and horror of war will convince the public they must submit to the rule of a world government. [10]

"We condemn the use of poison gas by Iraq at the same time we aid Iraq, along with the Soviets, in preventing an Iranian victory, forgetting that Iraq started the war. Inconsistently, the administration pressures Congress to manufacture new nerve gas so we have something with which to go to the Soviets and draw up some unworkable treaty regarding war gases. We allocate low-interest loans through the Export-Import Bank to build a pipeline for Iraq, giving huge profits to Shultz Bechtel Corp., while hurting our domestic oil producers."

Very few Americans are aware of the fact that the U.S. and the Soviets often work together to promote chaos and foreign wars.[11] Why would the leaders of opposing nations cooperate with one another? Because the leaders of both nations are under the control of the Spiritual Hierarchy which is dedicated to the formation of a new world order, a new world religion, and a new world leader. [12]

"On the day we 'stood firm' against Communist aggression in this hemisphere by invading Grenada, our president apologized to those liberal House Members who were 'soft on communism' and pleaded for their vote to ensure the passage of the IMF bill, so the 'Communist dictators' can continue to receive taxpayer dollars - dollars used to support Castro's adventurism in the Caribbean and in Central America."

Most Americans believe the U.S. opposes Fidel Castro, but nothing could be further from the truth. The U.S. State Department installed Fidel Castro's regime in Cuba in 1959, and has directly or indirectly subsidized that brutal regime since then. If you would like to verify the fact that the U.S. installed Fidel Castro, I suggest you watch "World Revolution," a DVD which contains a segment of my interview with Ambassador Earl E. T. Smith who was the American ambassador to Cuba from 1957 to 1959. [13]

"Our official policy currently is to be tough on communism, but at the same time promote low-interest loans, allowing Red China to buy nuclear technology, F-16s and other military technology - all this by the strongest anti-Communist administration that we've had in decades. We participate in the bailout of bankrupt Argentina as she continues to loan money to Castro's Cuba, which then prompts us to send men, money and weapons to counteract the spread of communism formed by Castro. It's doubtful if any of these loans will be repaid, and the military equipment and technology will probably end up being used against us at a later date. We talk about a close alliance with Taiwan while subsidizing their hated enemy, Red China.

We subsidize Red China's nuclear technology; at the same time, we allow Jane Fonda to ruin ours."

Why did the U.S. finance Red China in 1984? Why is the U.S. subsidizing and financing Communist China today? Most Americans believe the U.S. opposes Communism, but that is a misconception. U.S. officials, U.S. bankers, U.S. corporations, and powerful U.S. citizens have financed the Soviet Union and Red China since their inception. [14]

"We continuously sacrifice ourselves to the world by assuming the role of world policeman, which precipitates international crises on a regular basis, all the while neglecting our own defenses. New planes go overseas while our Air National Guard is forced to use planes 20 years old. We neglect our defenses by signing treaties like Salt 1 and the ABM Treaty that prevents us from building a non- nuclear defense system - and follow Salt II without even signing it. The result: a massive arms race based on a doctrine of mutual assured destruction.

Praising the greatness of the Vietnam veterans and honoring them can never remove the truth of our failed policy that took us there. Resurrecting heroes will never erase the pain and suffering of an interventionist foreign policy that prompted unnecessary military activities and a no-win strategy."

The U.S. military wasn't allowed to win the Vietnam War or the Korean War, and the U.S. military hasn't been allowed to win the current wars they are fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq. [15] Why did the United States engage in a no-win war in Vietnam? The U.S. official primarily responsible for that policy was McGeorge Bundy, who was a member of the CFR, a member of Skull and Bones, president of the Ford Foundation, and under the control of the Spiritual Hierarchy. You can read his explanation of the no-win war in Vietnam in the January 1967 edition of Foreign Affairs magazine, which is the theoretical journal of the Council on Foreign Relations. [16]

"There are 42 wars now going on in the world, and it's reported we're involved in many of them - on both sides. We have troops in a total of 121 countries. National security is used as justification for all this activity, but rarely is it directly involved.

Our Export-Import Bank financed the building of the Kama River truck plant in Russia - trucks then used in the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan over a road built by our own Corps of Engineers. Our response? Draft registration and an Olympic boycott!"

Why did the U.S. finance and build the largest truck manufacturing plant in the world for the Soviets during the Vietnam War when the Soviets were supplying the military weapons that were being used to kill American soldiers in South Vietnam? [17]

"In pleading for the MX funds, the administration explains we need it as a bargaining chip. I guess to bargain away to the Soviets whom we can't trust anyway. We even modify the MX to conform with the Salt II Treaty - a treaty we never even signed.

If we look closely at the record, we find the conservative hawk is frequently the one who appeases and subsidizes the Communists, and never starts the war; the liberal dove is the one more likely to involve us in a war to protect democracy and stop Communist expansion. Images play tricks on us and policy is achieved by deception. Is this a mere coincidence, or is it contrived by those dedicated to internationalism?"

The Globalists (the Spiritual Hierarchy) are trying to confuse the American people so they won't be able to understand the events that are taking place today. What is happening? The financial and military power of the U.S. is being used to bring about a world government, a world religion, and a world leader. [18]

"The carnage of the 20th Century, as compared to the 19th Century, must someday make us aware of the difference between the two policies pursued. Does the modern age mandate that we reject a policy of self-interest and non-intervention, or is it just possible that worthwhile policies are of value, regardless of the age in which we live? It's an important question, because it will determine whether or not we will enjoy peace and prosperity in the generations to come.

Our economic policy is no less contradictory. It's fair to say that even with all the good intentions of the Members, the planned welfare state has been a complete and miserable failure. For the most part, the programs achieve exactly opposite results from those sought. There is a limit to how long the economy can tolerate these insults before we all suffer from the severe consequences. What we say and do are in conflict with each other. We talk boldly of balanced budgets, full employment, prosperity, low interest rates, and no inflation. So we either do not believe, as a body, what we say, or we are inept in our ability to pursue and achieve the goals that we seek. Either way, the results remain the same.

The economic contradictions are numerous. Conservatives, for years, preached balanced budgets - until in charge - then the deficits soared to $200 billion per year. Liberal big spenders who led the way to runaway spending quickly excoriate conservative deficits and nothing happens; the deficit financing continues and accelerates.

Campaigns are won on promising tax cuts; some are given, but are quickly canceled out by numerous tax increases associated with accelerated federal spending.

Congress and the administration are quick to blame the Federal Reserve System for high interest rates and do nothing about the huge deficits. Congress totally ignores their responsibility in maintaining the integrity of the money and refuses to exert their rightful authority over the Federal Reserve. We routinely preach about helping the poor, then plunder the working class to subsidize foreign socialist dictators and the welfare rich through abusive taxation and inflation.

Our government pursues a policy of currency debasement, causing steadily rising prices, and blindly treats only the symptoms while punishing, through regulations and taxation, those capable and willing to take care of themselves.

Vocal support for free trade is routinely heard as protectionist measures march on. The steel, sugar, textile, shoe, copper, and automobile industries all come for help, and we do nothing to remove the burden of taxation, inflation, high interest rates and labor laws that put our companies at a competitive disadvantage. Our protectionist measures then hurt our trade partners, precipitating our need to send them more foreign aid to help out their weak economies and to relieve their debt burden.

Archconservatives champion tobacco subsidies, which are criticized by archconservatives who champion milk subsidies. Government then spends millions of dollars to regulate the tobacco industry and points out the hazards of smoking.

A liberal champion of the peace movement and disarmament pushes for the B-1 bomber as a reasonable alternative - and because it's good for the economy - the bomber, by coincidence, to be built in the Senator's home state.

The well-intentioned do-gooder legislates minimum wage laws to help the poor and minorities, causing higher unemployment in the precise groups who were intended to be the beneficiaries.

We learned nothing from the Depression years and continue to pay farmers to raise crops not needed, then pay them to stop planting. Our policies drive prices of commodities down, so we prop up the prices and buy up the surpluses. The consumer suffers, the farmer suffers, the country suffers, but our policies never change; we just legislate more of the same programs that cause the problems in the first place.

Our steel plants are closing down, so we pursue protectionism and stupidly continue to subsidize the building of steel plants throughout the world through our foreign-aid projects.

We pay for bridges and harbors throughout the world and neglect our own. If we feel compulsion to spend and waste money, it would make more sense at least to waste it at home. We build highways around the world, raise gasoline taxes here, and routinely dodge potholes on our own highways.

Why do we cut funding for day-care centers and Head Start programs before cutting aid to the Communists, Socialists, and international bankers?"

The U.S. has financed Marxist dictators throughout the world since Communism was established in Russia in 1917. [19]

"A substantial number of businessmen demand the rigors of the free market for their competitors, and socialism/fascism for themselves.

Economic interventionism, a philosophy in itself and not a compromise with anything, is the cause of all these contradictions in the economy. Rejection of government planning, controlled by the powerful special interests, at the expense of the general welfare is necessary, and even inevitable, for that system will fall under its own weight. The question that remains is whether or not it will be replaced with a precise philosophy of the free market, rejecting all special interests and fiat money, or with a philosophy of socialism. The choice when the time comes should not be difficult, but freedom lovers have no reason for complacency or optimism." (underlining added-ed)

Congressman Ron Paul's Farewell Address covered other important issues that will be addressed in subsequent letters. Why is Congressman Paul's information important today? Because he warned the American people that:

"Economic interventionism . . . controlled by the powerful special interests . . . will fall under its own weight. The question that remains is whether or not it will be replaced with a precise philosophy of the free market, . . . or with a philosophy of socialism."

We have reached that point today. The fiat money system that was imposed on the people of the world by "the powerful special interests" is falling "under its own weight." There were over 45,000 home foreclosures in the U.S. in January 2008, several hundred thousand Americans have lost their homes, millions of home owners are behind on their payments, 5 million Americans have lost high-paying manufacturing jobs, credit markets throughout the world are contracting, inflation is 10%, and the U.S., government is borrowing $2.5 billion a day to pay its bills. How long can the current situation continue?

Professor Laurence J. Kotlikoff wrote an article that was published by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis (July/August 2006) that stated:

"Countries can and do go bankrupt. The United States, with its $65.9 trillion fiscal gap, seems clearly headed down that path." [20]

What is the Bush administration doing to stave off the imminent financial collapse of our nation? They have arranged to forgive $42 billion of the international debt of the impoverished nations of the world, and they are sending hundreds of billions of dollars to Africa, Asia, Central America, and South America in order to raise the standard of living in those regions, and lower the standard of living of the American people. Why is the Bush administration trying to impoverish our nation? Because they are carrying out the dictates of the occult leaders who wrote the Earth Charter.

Section 10 a and b of that document stipulates:

a. Promote the equitable distribution of wealth within nations and among nations.
b. Enhance the intellectual, financial, technical, and social resources of developing nations, and relieve them of onerous international debt. [21]

What can you and I do? We can tell everyone we know that their life savings, their CDs, their annuities, their pensions, their insurance policies, and everything they possess that is denominated in U.S. dollars, will be destroyed if the current rate of inflation continues. Most people will reject your warning, but before long they will be coming to you for help and advice. Is there hope? Yes, we have hope because we are involved in a spiritual battle for the souls of men and the survival of Christian civilization, and we are not required to win the battle. That is God's job. We are only required to do our best, and George Bennard's great hymn will help us, because he proclaimed:

"On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,
The emblem of suffering and shame;
And I love that old cross, where the dearest and best
For a world of lost sinners was slain.

Oh, that old rugged cross, so despised by the world,
Has a wondrous attraction for me;
For the dear Lamb of God left His glory above
To bear it to dark Calvary.

In the old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine,
A wondrous beauty I see;
For 'twas on that old cross, Jesus suffered and died
To pardon and sanctify me." [23]

That statement reflects our hope, and our promise. Barbara and I appreciate your faithful support, and your prayers.

Yours in Christ,

Stanley Monteith
