Nader on 9/11. Nader on Ron Paul.

The two topics seem unrelated.

On 9/11:

Ralph Nader, the consumer activist and independent presidential candidate, seems to think that the report of the commission assigned to investigate the events of 9-11 should not be the last word.

“There are unanswered questions in the 9-11 investigation, and they should be answered,” Nader said at a recent address at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. “How do you go from plausibility to evidence? You have a more independent inquiry.”

On the morning of September 11, 2001, airliners collided with each of the twin towers of New York City’s World Trade Center, after which they and a third nearby office building mysteriously collapsed. Other incidents on the same day at the Pentagon and in a field in Pennsylvania were also attributed to aircraft collisions. All were pitched by the government as the result of a terrorist conspiracy, although it is widely believed that the government may have played a direct role in orchestrating the events.

On Ron Paul:

On another topic, Nader had kind words to say for presidential candidate, Ron Paul.

“Ron Paul is very good on foreign policy,” he said. “He’s a refreshing voice.”

Nader also praised Paul for his outspoken opposition to the aggressive U.S. stance against Iran and the so-called ‘war-on-drugs.’

    “There are unanswered questions in the 9-11 investigation, and they should be answered,” Nader said

    Strange that the socialists have the ability to see through the bullshit, but a lot of “libertarians” can’t find their ass from a hole in the ground on this one.

  2. Stine Says:

    The quote when juxtaposed with the “editorializing” makes it seem as if Nader supports the “inside job” theory, when no such support exists.

    Really sloppy reporting by the source.

  3. Mike Gillis Says:

    Yeah, Nader is no 9/11 Truther. Nor does he hang out in their circles.

  4. Eric Prindle Says:

    Two things I have noticed:

    1. Many left-leaning Greens, when asked why they support Ralph Nader, point to the amount of media attention he gets, and some even claim that any Green who supports a candidate with a lower media profile is just a “Demogreen” in disguise.

    2. An alarming percentage of the time Nader appears in the media, he sings the praises of one or another right-wing or centrist D.C. elected official.

  5. Sivarticus Says:

    So Ron Paul is just another “right-wing elected official”? I see left-wing cliquishness is alive and well, especially among the Greens.

  6. Sivarticus Says:

    Oh yeah, I recall Nader and Buchanan gave each other a kind word on a couple different occasions in 2000. I didn’t hear any whining about it from the Greens then though, I wonder why…

  7. James Madison Says:

    “Strange that the socialists have the ability to see through the bullshit, but a lot of “libertarians” can’t find their ass from a hole in the ground on this one.”

    A sad but true commentary, Disinter. Very sad.

  8. James Madison Says:

    FYI

    actually nader signed the 2004 9/11 Truth Statement calling for an investigation specifically focused on “let it happen on purpose”

    so these “nader’s no truther” trolls are off-base

  9. Joseph Marzullo Says:

    What are you trying to say about libertarians? Libetarians are correct on every issue.

  10. David Gaines Says:

    Nobody seems to have noticed the irrelevance of the phrase “Strange that the socialists have the ability….” If this is a reference to Ralph Nader, someone needs to go read up on who Ralph Nader is. He’s no socialist, as anyone who’s ever actually heard him speak or read anything he’s written - or anyone who actually is a socialist - would know. Would that he were. I’m not surprised, though, that someone who thinks that the most widely accepted concept within the climatology and geophysics communities worldwide is some sort of conspiracy thinks that Mr. Nader is a socialist, however.

    As a presidential candidate, Ralph Nader has always had kind things to say for people who are pushing the same rock up the same hill as he is, even if they’re not ideological soulmates. That’s why he’s on record as having complimented Patrick Buchanan, Ron Paul, Cynthia McKinney, etc.

    He’s not being hypocritical, he’s not gaining anything from it, and he’s certainly not running around advocating the return of the gold standard and the abolition of public property just because he said a few nice things about Ron Paul’s stance on war and foreign policy. And being in favor of cracking down on corporate welfare and returning control of corporations to those who own them (i.e. shareholders) hardly makes him a socialist, any more than it makes John Conyers or Russ Feingold a socialist.

    Nader pandering to the troofers? lol

    “There are unanswered questions in the 9-11 investigation, and they should be answered,” Nader said at a recent address at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. “How do you go from plausibility to evidence? You have a more independent inquiry.”

    Substitute JFK or RFK in place of 9-11, Or MLK. Or JFK Jr. Or Sen, Wellstone. Or Lee Harvey Oswald. The unanswered questions of 9-11 will lead to answers about many “operations” which were explained as “lone nut” or “tragic accident” by the complicit media.

    Patriots, like Alex Jones, David Griffin, Kevin Barrett, Jim Fetzer and many others with the 9-11 truth movement, made similiar statements Nader has concerning the above historical figures. They too were vilified by the complicit media. The truth to be kept safe from inquiry. The “official” truth rubber stamped by a “commission”. History seems to keep repeating itself

    By the way, by fifth grade in my day you knew that quotation marks clearly bracket quotes. The absence of such clearly editorial by writer.

  13. Catholic Trotskyist Says:

    Disinter is on to something. The Obama Democrats, the Paul Republicans, the libertarians and the socialists will soon unite to defeat the stalinist/fascist criminal Ralph Nader and his pawns, George W. Bush, John McCain and Hillary Clinton. Nader is to be blamed for the war in Iraq and all of the Bush administration’s destructive policies. Fortunately, Bill Clinton is not part of this conspiracy, as he is working to sabotage Hillary’s campaign. I have deducted from secret codes that Bill Clinton secretly voted for Barack Obama in the primary.

  14. Drumz Says:

    I think a lot of people believe Paul is more “right-wing” than he really is, and that Nader is more “left-wing” than he is.

    The issue is not “who?” is right, or “which party?” is right. The issue is “WHAT?” is right. Both of these guys should band together and clean house. But, again, idealogues on both sides dismiss the idea because the other guy isn’t 100% for all of “their” causes.

    Umm, his number one issue is advocating socialized healthcare. You Nader nuts either don’t know what you are supporting or can’t figure out what socialism is.

    You just contradicted yourself. If something is the “most widely accepted” of whatever it is you are referring to, then you are describing a conspiracy. You have learned to spell these incredibly complex (for you) words: socialist and conspiracy. Now you may want to attempt to figure out what they mean.

  17. Joseph Marzullo Says:

    Universal healthcare lol. That would be a disaster. If it actually did great I’d be the first guy in link to support it. But does not work great. It goes from great…to…good…to tolerable to…well, at least we have it.

    I think would be great is every state running their own healthcare policies. Citizens will be free to decide which one works for them. Competition among states.

    Ideally I’d prefer a free market healthcare system but I know that won’t be happening anytime soon.

  18. Eric Prindle Says:

    “Ron Paul is very good on foreign policy” is a very broad statement, not an indication of some incidental agreements on policy details. Ron Paul’s foreign policy is resolutely nationalist, as is Pat Buchanan’s.

  19. Joseph Marzullo Says:

    Eric, you’re a moron. Pat Buchanan is a protectionist. Ron Paul believes in free trade. And what are you? A socialist?

  20. Iconoclast421 Says:

    I see the green party is as clueless as ever. The country is broke. Do you know what insolvent means? Do you know what 60 trillion in unfunded obligations means? Do you know what inflation means? It means socialized healthcare is a pipe dream.

    Go to google and type in “CMAL crash course”. And click on the “take the crash course now” button at the top. It’s a great series of short videos that get right to the point. If you agree with what is presented, then you should be a Ron Paul supporter. All other issues are just fluff at this point.

  21. Joseph Marzullo Says:

    What we should do is let doctors and patients come together and not interfere.

    Yeah, Nader is no 9/11 Truther. Nor does he hang out in their circles.”

    Nader believes that there are a lot of unanwsered questions about 9/11 and that the 9/11 investigation needs to be reopened. This makes him a 9/11 Truther.

    for those of you who wrote all of that bullshit you need to do you home work. you need to LOOK up these website infowars.com prisonplant.tv.com . and read you constitution and look what is happening to your food you are being poison why are you taxs going up everday. why are your gas pricing going up you is getting richer and your getting poorer. think about you so smart ass. and yes 9/11 was an inside job our own gov did it and they will do it again. i dare you to look up thosewebsite. go ahead do it if you think you know it all

  24. G.E. Says:

    James Madison - Are you a socialist? I’m confused. As for “bullshit,” last I heard from you, you were claiming that the IRS was efficient.

    Andy - So all I have to do is believe there are unanswered questions and the investigation should be reopened and I’m a Truther? Okay, I’m guilty then.

  25. Joseph Marzullo Says:

    There was a socialist that called himself a “libertarian” on RonPaulForums going by “jamesmadison,” so he might really be the same socialist ;)

  26. James Madison Says:

    G.E.

    James Madison is the Father of the Constitution.

  27. Joseph Marzullo Says:

    And? I’m talking about you - not him. You have distorted libertarianism by supporting socialized healthcare.

  28. James Madison Says:

    I don’t support socialized healthcare, that is an unlibertarian initiation of force.

  29. Andy Says:

    “Andy - So all I have to do is believe there are unanswered questions and the investigation should be reopened and I’m a Truther? Okay, I’m guilty then.”

    Well, you don’t believe that all of the questions have been anwsered and you support reopening the investigation to look for the truth, so by definition you are a 9/11 Truther.

  30. Alexander S. Peak Says:

    discinter writes, “Strange that the socialists have the ability to see through the bullshit, but a lot of ‘libertarians’ can’t find their ass from a hole in the ground on this one.”

    I don’t think that those of us who believe that bin Laden is real and the culprit disagree with Nader that there “are unanswered questions in the 9-11 investigation [that] should be answered,” we simply don’t see any rational reason to suppose that bin Laden is this Emanuel Goldstein-like character.

    Drumz writes, “I think a lot of people believe Paul is more ‘right-wing’ than he really is, and that Nader is more ‘left-wing’ than he is.”

    You’re probably correct.

  31. truth Says:

    I think you used the words “ron paul” just to get hits on your lame website.
