On the website of the Ron Paul Institute, Daniel McAdams features as the executive Director:
Clicking on the twitter-symbol in the top right corner of the website brings you the twitter account of the institute at https://twitter.com/RonPaulInstitut.
The Twitter-profile @DanielLMcAdams looks like this:
A search on twitter on both @RonPaulInstitut and ADanielLMcAdams gives results like this:
This clearly connects these accounts and it means @DanielLMcAdams is not a fake account impersonating the real McAdams, but it is indeed the executive director of the institute.
Daniel McAdams can be found as an author on the Russia Today website:
These are some things he says:
- "Ukrainian authorities are carrying out ethnic cleansing."
- Ukrainian "election in such a climate ... result of 'wonderfully democratic' vote"
- "Imposing sanctions on Russia is an act of war."
- "Stalemate can only be resolved by returning to February 21 agreement between Yanukovich and the opposition."
McAdams came to my attention because of his extremely rude remarks towards a Ukrainian citizen reporting live from Novoazovsk while it was being shelled, under attack and being taken over by Russian forces:
I jumped in to his defense, but no mercy for him... which is ridiculous in such circumstances. This made McAdams a suspect to me.
So I looked at some of his tweets and found things like this:
Some typical retweets from Russian Trolls:
He even takes on Carl Bildt in a rude way, who is the foreign minister of Sweden and who really supports Ukraine:
Daniel McAdams, the executive director of the Ron Paul Institute is a Russian Propagandist. Very likely he must be paid, bribed or who knows what to do this kind of thing.
My advice: ignore him and block him.
Whether the Ron Paul Institute itself is a cover up for Russian Propaganda or whether they happen to have the wrong director is something I did not bother to investigate yet. Yet they clearly seem to have a US-criticizing attitude.
