Is Ron Paul the Real D.B. Cooper?

According to reports, the FBI is returning to the search for the famous D.B. Cooper, the mysterious skyjacker who robbed an airliner in 1971 and then parachuted to an unknown future. The FBI’s release of a new picture raises the disturbing question of whether D.B. Cooper is hiding in the open: as presidential candidate Ron Paul.

The man calling himself Dan Cooper, also known as D.B. Cooper, robbed a Northwest flight en route from Portland fto Seattle on the night of November 24, 1971, and commandeered the plane, claiming he had dynamite. In Seattle, he demanded and got $200,000 and four parachutes and demanded to be flown to Mexico. He jumped out of the plane somewhere over southwestern Washington from the plane’s tail exit with two of the chutes.

Now, the FBI is trying again to find Cooper, click here. A close look at the picture released today, when aged, bears striking resemblance to the Paul. He also fits the rough weight and height descriptions. There is also the fact that there is something quintessentially libertarian in jumping out of a plane to land on your own in a remote location. Then there is the fact that not long after the skyjacking, Paul first ran for office in 1974. Was the money needed for his first run? You decide.

  1. Lol Ron Paul would never steal paper dollars. He would probably just never steal. He’s had plenty of opportunities to participate in stealing taxpayers’ dollars as a congressman and consistently votes against it.

    Kenny Christiansen (the ex-paratrooper, long time NorthWest Airlines employee) was D. B. Cooper.

  2. Just amazed bby all the crap people come up with…..

    Been drinking too much freakin Kool Aid, now step back very slowly from the pointy things……

  3. Now that is a very intriguing point, indeed. Could it have been a fit of gold-standard frenzy? Could he have rationalized that he was not really stealing? Did he deny that it was actually robbery given the lack of a gold-based currency?

  4. Would Ron Paul have stolen paper currency? This was a few months after Nixon took us off the gold standard, after all.

  5. This is precisely why we had to sew a GPS transmitter into Uncle Nunzio’s underwear. He insists Barbara Bush is the Quaker Oatmeal man. and Pope John Paul 1 was murdered. I’m pretty sure I know for whom he’ll be voting.

  6. Thank you. I for one intend to scream COOPER next time I spot Paul to see if he turns around.

  7. Hey conspiracy theories are always interesting to read…not only that but a conspiracy theory is just that. Cannot be proven so don’t be to deterred by people’s comments, you may be wrong but that shouldn’t stop you from blogging it anyways because hey…how cool would you be if you turned out to be spot on, am I right? 😛 haha

  8. It is comments like that that keep me from sharing my Jimmy Hoffa/Justice Souter conspiracy theory . . .

  9. Please check the eggnog left in the fridge from last week. I think it may have gone bad!

  10. There may be an additional piece of evidence.

    D.B. Cooper could well have hit his head quite hard after such an adventure. A severe head blow could explain Paul’s mostly wacky platform. His one point of seeming rational thought is his stance opposing the occupation of Iraq. Even this, however, is not based on the lies preceding that invasion or the mismanagement of the results, it’s simply his policy of non-intervention of any kind.
