‘New’ Republicans Behind Paul Ryan’s Political Rise

By Michael Collins Piper


.No media report on the selection of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) as Mitt Romney’s running mate has noted its real significance. The first-ever candidate on a national ticket of his generation to emerge from Congress — the exception being Barack Obama, who served in
the Senate — Ryan spent his entire adult life, beginning at age 19, immersed in the inner circles of the “new” Republican Party.
This one subtle nuance says much about Ryan, who, as a high school senior, was voted “biggest brown-noser.” In fact, Ryan’s entire career has been sponsored by high-level, hard-line pro-Israeli forces that — at the time Ryan first became involved in politics — were just beginning to make their heavy-handed presence felt in the GOP. Until that time, the Republican Party had largely been indifferent to the demands of the Israeli lobby, with some GOP leaders actually (on occasion) standing up to that lobby.
Ryan’s first political stint came as an intern for then-Sen. Bob Kasten (R-Wis.), who — in prior service in the House — was associated with the Conservative Opportunity Society (COS), a bloc of House Republicans led by then-Rep. Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.). The group’s leaders publicly proclaimed their determination, in the words of then-Rep. Vin Weber (R-Minn.), to make the GOP “America’s new internationalist party.”
COS members were outspoken advocates for Israel and actively worked to advance the interests of Israel, once even frustrating an effort by former Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Thomas Moorer to force Congress to launch an inquiry into Israel’s murderous 1967 attack on the USS Liberty.
Later, Ryan went to work for Weber at a “think tank” called Empower America founded by Weber after he left Congress. Empower America was so much a front-line force promoting Israeli interests and the globalist agenda to the point that Ryan’s sponsor was named to the powerful Council on Foreign Relations (where he is a member of its board) and served as chairman of the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), on whose board he still serves. Critics view the NED as an influential force advancing American imperial meddling around the planet.
Ryan then went back to Capitol Hill, where he was legislative director for then-Sen. Sam Brownback (R-Kan.). Although Ryan had, by that point, left Brownback’s office, Brownback received unwanted attention when AMERICAN FREE PRESS revealed in an international exclusive that Brownback entered into an agreement with Israeli lobby forces to institute legislation to curtail criticism of Israel by professors and students on American college campuses. Brownback did this by threatening to cut federal funding to colleges that permit such exercise of free speech. Brownback even spoke of
setting up a tribunal to enforce the censorship.
Considering all of this, it is no surprise that preceding Romney’s selection of Ryan as his running mate, two major journals with long-standing ties to pro-Israeli neo-conservative circles — The Wall Street Journal (published by Zionist billionaire Rupert Murdoch) and The Weekly Standard (founded by Murdoch and still edited by neo-conservative power broker William Kristol) — urged Romney to select Ryan. That both publications are closely allied with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — a longtime friend of Romney — points further toward the Zionist origins of Ryan’s rise to the top of the GOP pyramid.
