Ron Paul, the former Republican presidential candidate and libertarian icon, believes a coup has already occurred in American politics, beginning on the day John F. Kennedy (JFK) was “murdered by our government.”

Paul made the bombshell statement during Tuesday’s two-hour interview with the “TimCast IRL” podcast.

The former congressman and father of Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) began a segment by suggesting “there’s been a coup” in American politics already.

“We don’t have any resemblance to a government that believes in a republic,” he said.

Ron Paul: JFK Was Murdered by the CIA

In the interview, Paul pivoted to selective outrage directed toward Republican George Santos, the embattled congressman currently ensnared in numerous local and federal probes due to a history of lying.

“I got to thinking, well, how many of these people that were complaining about this guy telling lies, how many of them lied when they raised their hand up and swore to uphold the Constitution?” Paul wondered.

“Now, that’s a lie that really has consequences.”

He described those swearing to uphold the Constitution but refusing to do so as fomenting “the real lies.”

“I do believe there has been a coup, and it’s been taken over,” continued Paul.

“And if I want to if I can, I want to just put the date in my mind, and anybody could pick probably any date in the last hundred years. But I have picked November 22, 1963.”

When asked by the interviewer what that date symbolizes Paul replied: “That was the day Kennedy was murdered by our government. You know, by the CIA.”

Dramatically Changed America

The Ron Paul Insititute seemed to recognize that its chairman had “stirred up some attention” with his assertion that the United States government murdered JFK.

“The assassination Paul describes as a coup that helped dramatically changed the nature of America,” they told readers.

While the media attempts to paint people who believe as Paul does as radical malcontents, polls consistently show that a majority of Americans believe President Kennedy was murdered by a conspiracy, not a lone gunman.

Since the assassination, Paul believes America has reached a point where “we don’t have honest money, we don’t have integrity, we don’t even have people in Washington that even pretend that you’re supposed to tell the truth.”

Fox News host Tucker Carlson several months ago made a similar assertion about JFK being murdered, alleging President Richard Nixon was removed from office because he apparently knew the CIA was involved.

Nixon, Carlson claimed, was asking too many questions.

“On June 23, 1972, Nixon met with the then–CIA director, Richard Helms, at the White House,” Carlson explained.

“During the conversation, which thankfully was tape-recorded, Nixon suggested he knew ‘who shot John,’ meaning President John F. Kennedy.”

“Nixon further implied that the CIA was directly involved in Kennedy’s assassination, which we now know it was,” he added. “Helms’s telling response? Total silence.”

Richard Helms, of course, was the CIA Director of Plans starting in 1962.

The Fox News host has pushed the claim previously, even going so far as to suggest an unnamed source has informed him that the CIA was involved in JFK’s assassination.

Carlson claimed to have spoken to somebody who had access to hidden CIA documents that remain withheld from the public.

“Did the CIA have a hand in the murder of John F. Kennedy, an American President?” he asked the source.

“The answer is yes. I believe they were involved. It’s a whole different country from what we thought it was. It’s all fake,” was their alleged response.

The White House ordered the release of thousands of documents on the murder of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy in full for the first time this past December, though they have yet to release all documents.

A 1992 law required the government to release all documents pertaining to the assassination by October 2017.

Despite the latest document dump, the National Archives revealed that 515 documents would remain withheld in full, and another 2,545 documents would be partially withheld.

Almost 60 years after JFK’s assassination, documents remain under wraps. For what possible reason could this be? Where is the transparency?
