Moreover, Reuters reports that Japan and Europe are less than sanguine with the American-led sanctions against Iranian oil exports and the resulting energy price shocks an embargo would inflict on these already-weak economies.
But, as we’ve come to learn from past geo-political events, there always seems to lie that rest of the story behind the ‘approved’ story—a story told that inevitably ends with the ‘good’ guys beating the ‘bad’ guys.
But aside from the predictable future documentaries, which may shed some light on Israel’s intelligence agency Mossad’s hand in many false-flag ‘terrorist’ activities, there lies a story even more profound, yet a positive and refreshing one for America. That tale centers on America’s Congressman Ron Paul of Texas and his fight against the American Empire.
“Europe and Japan just yanked the legs out from the plan to provoke Iran with oil sanctions,” wrote blogger Michael Rivera of WhatReallyHappened.com. “The U.S. government will likely not raise on this busted flush because Ron Paul’s success in the primaries, despite the concerted efforts of the corporate media, the GOP, and Israel, has sent a clear and unambiguous message to the status quo that starting yet another war for Israel is going to cost incumbents their jobs come November.”
Though the threat of an oil price spike and the economic catastrophe of higher gas prices on the U.S. economy and its allies’ economies of Europe and Japan was no doubt an important factor in Washington’s call for a retreat, astute observers of Ron Paul’s political movement have suggested that the ‘incorruptible’ Paul (as he’s been labeled by both his supporters and others) could rival Iran as a threat to Washington power, maybe no less than India’s Mohandas Gandhi’s grass root threat to the declining British empire during the days of colonized India.
Though no reference to the eerie comparison between the Gandhi threat to a crumbling British empire and the noticeably vulnerable U.S. empire and its covert fight against Ron Paul has been made, Trends Forecaster Founder Gerald Celente picked up on Ron Paul’s robust message of liberty to America.
“Ron Paul, in his speech after the New Hampshire primaries, he picked up the call that I’ve been calling for and have written about in the Trends Journal,” Celente told Jeff Rense of the Jeff Rense Radio Show on Friday, “ . . . and that was my call for an intellectual revolution. That’s right, that’s what Ron Paul called for in his speech—an intellectual revolution . . . This is the battle of the minds; it’s the battle of the spirit; it’s the battle of the soul. It’s not a battle of guns.
A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes.
A nation’s culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people.
“Isn’t it ironic, the United States, the great peacemaker, has the most guns, the most armaments,” added Celente. “That’s not a peacemaker, that’s a bully . . . This is a revolution about thinking, not manning the barricades.”
I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people. —Mohandas Gandhi
Celente said the speech delivered by Ron Paul on the night of the New Hampshire primary was the best he’s “ever heard”, especially the part of the speech which makes reference to a trend Celente sees for America—an intellectual revolution.
Following the results of the NH primary, Ron Paul said, “What we are involved in will not go unnoticed. Let me tell you. I think the intellectual revolution that’s going on now to restore liberty in this country is well on its way and there is no way they’re going to stop the momentum that we have started.”
Celente concluded about Ron Paul, “Anyone who calls themselves a moral person and believing in one of the basics out there, do onto others as you would have them do unto you, could not in clear conscience not vote for Ron Paul, because the United States government is killing innocent people around the world.”
Is it not enough to know the evil to shun it? If not, we should be sincere enough to admit that we love evil too well to give it up. —Mohandas Gandhi
Whether America is ready for a President Ron Paul may be too early to tell, but there is little doubt that he’s making history before our eyes with the same message that toppled the British Empire in India. After declaring independence from the British Empire in 1776, it’s time to declare independence from the American Empire in 2012, according to Celente.
