The neocons and their allies in the media and politics will always be after Ron Paul. Now they are claiming he will not speak at the DC statefest called CPAC because the group will not pay him. In fact, his agent told CPAC in December that it was not possible for him to speak because he has an engagement in Orlando at that time. Yet CPAC kept claiming that he would be a featured speaker. Now they plant lies in the media about speakers fees. Yet Ron and his agent knew that CPAC, a Beltway coalition of Republican faction bosses and financial fixers, did not pay for speakers. But if Ron were willing to speak at their celebration of Bush, Rubio, Cruz, the wars, the CIA, etc., why not get paid, if that were possible?
