Ron Paul’s neo-Nazi ties, Romney alliance exposed

When hacking activist group Anonymous began Operation Blitzkrieg – a mission to take down the white supremacist American Third Party – they were surprised by what they found: a direct connection with GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul.

A document dump currently made public on a site by Anonymous includes private forum messages, emails, and organizational notes by the neo-Nazi A3P. While sifting through this information, the hacktivists uncovered numerous links to Paul. The Republican presidential hopeful met with several A3P members on a regular basis, participated in conference calls with their board of directors, and utilized racists to bolster his presidential campaign.

Anonymous also hacked into the private email account of A3P webmaster Jamie Kelso – a former Scientologist and owner of several German Nazi forums. They found coordinated meetings between Kelso and Paul. One was in the form of a January 2011 email from Kelso to a fellow A3P member, in which Kelso stated, “I’m going to the Conservative Political Action Conference with Bill Johnson. Bill and I will be meeting with Ron and Rand Paul. I have a teleconference call with [them] tonight. Much more, later. Things are starting to happen, thanks to folks like you.”

William Johnson, who Kelso mentioned, is a corporate lawyer and chairman of A3P. In 1985, he proposed a constitutional amendment that would revoke the U.S. citizenship of every non-white American.

“According to these messages, Ron Paul has regularly met with many A3P members, even engaging in conference calls with their board of directors,” Anonymous declared in a statement. “Ron Paul’s racist politics and affiliations are already well-known, being viciously anti-immigrant, anti-abortion, and against gay marriage – not to mention having authored the racist ‘Ron Paul Papers,’ and receiving financial support from other white power groups.”

Though accusation of racist and Nazi ties have come Paul’s way over the years, Paul has gone the predictable route in response, by issuing denials and feigning ignorance to any purported neo-Nazi connections.

And another of Paul’s unpleasant alliances has come into the public spotlight – according to a report by the Washington Post, Paul has formed a strategic alliance with fellow GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney.

Indeed, while the current GOP candidates are constantly throwing verbal attacks at one another, Paul and Romney haven’t really said a bad thing about each other. That’s because they’ve been friends since 2008. But it’s more than that.

This alliance is by and large a win-win scenario for either candidate: If Paul’s bid for the presidency fails, Romney’s presidency would allow for Paul to still have some degree of authoritative control – the ability to play a role in shaping policy, rather than mere opinion. For Romney’s part, this would be a chance to gain extra support from the pro-Paul subgroups of the Republican Party, as well as many of Paul’s supporters who would approve of this alliance. Essentially, accomodating Paul could unify Republican voters against President Obama.

What Paul will say in response to Anonymous’ revelatory discovery about his racist connections is anyone’s guess.

  • Awesome Post!!

  • You made some clear points there. I looked on the internet for the topic and found most guys will go along with with your phorum. Wish you luck!

  • It’s sad that people listen to the propaganda of Ron Paul but fail to look at his record. He has sponsored 420 guns bills but not a single piece of legislation to actually help Americans.
    His record of racist activity is well documented, well reported and then denied by his supporters. Lies and distortions about Paul’s activities abound and are sponsored by his campaign committee. They never miss an opportunity to distort or make up lies. An example of this is the widely reported claim that America’s military overwhelmingly supports Ron Paul. The only basis for this claim is Paul’s campaign committee, without any supporting documentation or data from other candidates. It’s a lie that spreads like a virus.
    We now have delegate theft to add to Paul’s crimes. Still on going the regimen is exactly that of Adolf Hitler in his rise to power.
    Ron Paul is truly America’s Hitler.

  • The Romneys were/are literally in bed with the Nazis. Pop Romney got his start in politics working for Senator David Walsh who got busted while frequenting a gay whorehouse which was a front for a Nazi spy ring. Pop Romney was probably an extortionist not a lobbyist the whole time he worked at Alcoa and Alcoa was trading with the enemy.

    Alcoa sabotage of American war production had already cost the U.S. “10,000 fighters or 1,665 bombers,” according to Congressman Pierce of Oregon speaking in May 1941, because of “the effort to protect Alcoa’s monopolistic position.

    “If America loses this war,” said Secretary of the Interior (Harold) Ickes, June 26, 1941, “it can thank the Aluminum Corporation of America.”

  • This is a stupid arguement as just meeting does not mean much. At least compared with Obama, Ron Paul sounds better, in spite of some shortcomings in his policy, which I believe will be modified or moderated once he becomes president.

  • Wow, do a story about Paul and here come the Ronbots! The thing is, we don’t really need Anonymous to expose a “conspiracy” to show Paul’s racism, we have his own newsletter. It’s pretty disingenuous for him to say he didn’t know what was in it– he published it, his name’s on it, some of the hateful articles in it are written in the first person! If he disagreed with them, why didn’t he do something about it when they came out? Like issue a correction: “Sorry, I didn’t mean to call MLK Day “Hate Whitey Day”?!

    Sure, he’s against the Drug War. But would just legalizing drugs, while at the same time eliminating all social programs, do anything to improve society or address the root causes of drug abuse?

    Paul’s championing of “states rights” would likely bring and end to the Civil Rights Act. Paul finds big chunks of modern life–such as having interstate highways–as “unconstitutional.”

    I find the libertarian dystopia envisioned by Paul’s dedicated legion of young white males very scary.

  • This Author definitly hasnt checked any facts. Way to spin up false accusations. This is slander isnt it?

  • The Vancouver Observer has picked up on this and is reporting that the main people denying any support for or connection to Ron Paul are the very white supremacists whom are being cited in these emails (on second page of web article):

    Furthermore, the official Anonymous hacker group is denying that they conducted this hacking and it is not a part of their official Operation Blitzkrieg:

    As the VO summarizes, this appears to not be a legitimate hack by Anonymous exposing Ron Paul, but rather an effort by a group claiming to be Anonymous putting out false information in an attempt to discredit Ron Paul. Which somewhat makes sense: If you do a little research you can find that most of the individuals supposedly claiming to “campaigners” for Ron Paul aren’t even affiliated with his campaign much less any of the grassroots organizations or Meetup groups in the areas these individuals claim to be working from. It all goes back to that article from the American Conservative – there is a very well coordinated effort from the GOP establishment to discredit Ron Paul as a racist in order to remove his signature positions, particularly his nonintervention foreign policy position, from being seriously discussed among the party:

  • Interestingly enough, the ones who seem to be in denial about this are the authors of these forum posts (they are not emails which is being widely reported). I’ve been researching the topic and came across some white supremacy forums where the members of A3P have been quite actively denying the claims of these posts…

    Here is an interesting article published by Scott McConnell yesterday which very astutely sums up Ron Paul’s political history, including the allegations of racism, and discusses what the motivation and strategy is behind these allegations. They seem to be the main thrust of credible criticisms against Ron Paul although they certainly cannot be said to be anywhere near the heart of his political platform:

  • Id’ have thought the fact that Ron Paul hasn’t criticised Mitt Romney is because he is biding his time. Mitt has so much money and can buy ad time very easily, that Ron would struggle to hold this back. He is probably hoping Mitt will focus on Newt and get him out, as well as Santorum, and then when we get to the states with only Paul and Romney on the ballot, Paul will push in and try to win those states and try and tip public opinion in his favour. These are the only two candidates on every ballot in the country, so it’s a long-term game that Ron Paul needs to play.

    Also, as Ron Paul is a conservative figure, he probably doesn’t see Romney’s supporters as being people to target, rather Santorum and Gingrich’s fans might be people that can be swayed if Paul appears to be most conservative.

    Altogether, the likelihood of Paul working for a Romney administration seems extremely thin. On many issues they disagree heavily. And whilst I’m a Paul supporter, or current stats, I wouldn’t say that reaching out to Ron Paul would unite the party, as half the party supports Gingrich or Santorum. So I think the reasons for Paul not attacking Romney might be a lot more tactical than you suggest.

  • I am contacting the FBI and reporting this and the handful of other sites promoting the terrorist groups writings because one of you clearly had contact and are conspiring with terrorists.

  • plus theres like one source underneath all this (trace it back)

  • I dont want to read that stupid information dump ‘released’ by anonymous. I can tell you dont want to read it either. So why not just drop the whole thing and call it a stupid prank?

  • Sorry to say, you’ve been had. You apparently didn’t look at the so-called “document dump” yourself, because if you did you’d wonder why you’re not finding any of the stuff you’re reporting on. There’s nothing of the sort in there. This is nothing more than a hoax aimed at tarnishing Paul in the hopes that people like you would report on it without doing the leg work yourself.

  • So, you don’t like Ron Paul or Mitt Romney, where is your blind, deaf and crippled hatred for Newt? Is it like Cuba is hated for being a communist dictatorship and we don’t trade with them, but China is a communist dictatorship that makes everything from major appliances to rubber poo?

  • Time after time, false flag smear attempts against Ron Paul draw in gullible pundits such as the Jon Huntsman “Manchurian Candidate” YouTube posting. Then there is a Washington Post article that uses anonymous assertions along with a secretary’s statement that Paul proofread articles. This was given the meaning never explicitly stated by the secretary that Paul proofread every single newsletter, something she would not be in a position to know. For perspective on how rarely such material appeared in one of the multiple monthly newsletters check out Ben Swann’s two-part Reality Check. In subsequent reference, the Wasington Post’s article was itself taken out of context to eliminate the quotes by named sources denying the assumption contained in the headline. Now a neo-nazi group’s secret computer records exposes Paul’s connection to them. Wow! That is truly lame, made even more lame by you not even getting the name right. It’s not American Third Party, It’s American Third Position.

  • 1) Make up crap about Ron Paul to stir up the Paul bot.
    2) ???
    3) Fail. hahaa

  • Sounds like alot of hot air to me. I have pictures of me standing by lots of famous people and of course I shine on nutty people by being nice. However, the Romneys have ties to REAL NAZI’S.

    George Romney worked for Massachusetts Democratic U.S. Senator David I. Walsh during 1929 and 1930 as a staff aide working on tariffs and other legislative matters.

    The New York Post ruined the career of Senator David Walsh with the story that he was involved in a gay Nazi whorehouse full of gay, Nazi, pro-Hitler whores trying to bring down America through extortion.

    It was 1942, and police were tipped off that there was a gay brothel in Massachusetts that was infested with Nazi spies. It wasn’t entirely random — at the risk of propagating a cliche, the brothel was a popular haunt for Navy personnel. So it was a good place to gather military information, if you were an undercover Nazi and willing to bone a sailor in order to get him talking.

    But after city detectives raided the sex club/spy nest, news emerged from somewhere that a U.S. senator had been caught in the sting. Armed with what might very well have been a rumor, the Post handled this insanely juicy gossip with the utmost of professionalism: They sensationalized the shit out of it and stretched out the reveal as long as they could.

    The Post first released the story as just the scandal, then dragged out the affair by hinting that a famous person was involved, then called that person “Senator X” and then finally published Walsh’s name.

    When Walsh was accused of having gay sex with Nazis, the first thing he did was deny it. He then requested a full FBI investigation to prove his innocence. The investigation was conducted, and sure enough, they couldn’t find anything to pin on him except that the brothel owner, Gustave Beekman, swore he saw Walsh fraternizing with the Nazi gigolos, including a notorious spy known as “Mister E.y.

    Although Walsh was exonerated, his career was crippled — it’s speculated that elements of the government who desperately wanted the USA to enter the war were engaged in smearing politicians with isolationist policies, like Walsh.

    Dec 9,1933 – Church News article “Mormonism in The New Germany,” enthusiastically emphasizes parallels “between the LDS Church and some of the ideas and policies of the National Socialists.” First, Nazis have introduced “Fast Sunday.” Second, “it is a very well known fact that Hitler observes a form of living which Mormons term the Word of Wisdom. Finally, due to the importance given to the racial question by Nazis and the almost necessity of proving that one’s grandmother was not a Jewess, there no longer is resistance against genealogical research by German Mormons who now have received letters of encouragement complimenting them for their patriotism.

    George Romney was now an Executive at Alcoa lobbying congress for the next nine years and became very wealthy.

    “Thurman Arnold, as assistant district attorney of the United States, his assistant, Norman Littell, and several Congressional investigations, have produced incontrovertible evidence that some of our biggest monopolies entered into secret agreements with the Nazi cartels and divided the world up among them,” states Seldes in his book, “Facts and Fascism,” published in 1943.

    “Most notorious of all was Alcoa, the Mellon-Davis-Duke monopoly which is largely responsible for the fact America did not have the aluminum with which to build airplanes before and after Pearl Harbor, while Germany had an unlimited supply.”

    Alcoa sabotage of American war production had already cost the U.S. “10,000 fighters or 1,665 bombers,” according to Congressman Pierce of Oregon speaking in May 1941, because of “the effort to protect Alcoa’s monopolistic position.

  • The supposed file ( with all the data is not even working and the link is down.

    Allegations require proof, which there is NONE to speak. And yet people keep writing articles on websites claiming proof when all they have is hearsay. It’s pathetic and childish to assert things without the proof to back it up

    Guilt by Association is a tactic of the weak and desperate, and in itself is an ad hominem fallacy.

    To suggest that because a candidate is supported by a group of people who associate with an ideology make said candidate complicit is wrong and dishonest.

    The message of Freedom and Liberty, protected by a Constitutionally Bound Republic, resonates with all peoples. And no one group supports Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul, because his message brings all walks of life together.

    Anyone with real understanding of Liberty also has faith in their neighbor, friends and family. We understand and believe in the notion that people when left to make their own decisions with their future can do great things.

    We recognize and understand that in spite of it all, people are people and that no person should be punished for the benefit of the few. And that no person should be fined or imprisoned for the food or substances they have chosen to consume.

    We recognize that freedom can manifest in all walks of life, and we have faith in ourselves and others to make their own choices on how to express it. As long as a person does no harm to others, expressions of freedom are healthy and empowering.

    People can differ in this perspective, and groups will always want to impose it’s will upon another. But in a truly free society groups do not have rights. Only individuals do.

    But this tactic we see in this article is the opposite of this ideology, for they themselves have declared themselves the moral compass for the masses. But they themselves have become a tool of oppression by breaking the law to fulfill their political agenda.

    When a group of people have to resort to hate and violation of the law to promote their cause, they have become like the very monster they believe they are fighting.

  • Ha – Paul is not a racist or a neo-nazi. I think if he were, his policies would reflect such hatred. On the contrary, Paul wants to end the war on drugs and pardon millions of non-violent drug offenders (predominantly minorities) – doesn’t seem like the actions of a racist, neo-nazi to me…

    These accusations lack substance and, really, any hard evidence.
