CARLOS LAM: PAULBOT?
I'm sure you know about Carlos Lam, the Indiana deputy prosecutor who's now resigned after it was revealed that he urged Wisconsin governor Scott Walker to stage a "false flag operation" in order to gain public support in his battle to bust unions:
...Carlos F. Lam submitted his resignation shortly before the Center published a story quoting his Feb. 19 email, which praised Walker for standing up to unions but went on to say that the chaos in Wisconsin presented "a good opportunity for what’s called a ‘false flag’ operation."
"If you could employ an associate who pretends to be sympathetic to the unions' cause to physically attack you (or even use a firearm against you), you could discredit the unions," the email said....
The quoted story goes on to quote some of Lam's Net writings, including the profile he wrote when he registered at one site:
Lam wrote in his account profile there that he “believes that to truly prosper as the republic envisioned by the Founding Fathers, we must return to principles of sound money and limited government. He has his own '3G network' that is quite apart from Apple: guns, gold and gasoline.'"
"Guns" and "gasoline" are boilerplate wingnut -- but, um, "gold"? That suggests he's part of a wingnut sub-cult.
My first guess was that he's a Beckite. Then I Googled around and found this story, about a January 2010 Rand Paul campaign rally just over the state line from Lam, in Louisville, Kentucky -- a rally that also featured daddy Ron Paul:
...The son of Texas Congressman Ron Paul has gone from underdog to front runner, and his supporters have gravitated to his conservative views and belief in limited government.
"He understands that these foreign entanglements that we're in, Iraq, Afghanistan and now Haiti for that matter; the founders of our country warned us about getting involved in foreign entanglements. And we can't keep writing blank checks for overseas wars," said Carlos Lam....
Hmmm ... that's pure Paulism -- as is this Lam comment at the blog Seeking Alpha:
Several people warned that the bubble in real estate could have very negative consequences: Peter Schiff, Jim Rogers, Bill Fleckenstein, Ron Paul. Take your pick.
You are correct that none of the above would be fit to run the Federal Reserve; they all believe that the Federal Reserve as an institution should be either severely reformed or done away with precisely because central banking cannot possibly work.
Why do I bring all this up? Because Ron Paul World is a place where everything is a "false flag operation" -- the attempted underwear bombing in 2009, the Fort Hood shootings, of course 9/11; Obama is planning to cancel the 2012 elections after a false flag operation ... you see the pattern.
I don't know how far into the Paul parallel universe Lam got, but if I'm right and he made it even partway in, it's no wonder he thought this idea was just, y'know, normal.
