    White Double TODAY, THE CHURCH honors the memory of one of those men who were expressly chosen by God to represent the sublime detachment from all things, which was to be taught to the world by the example of the Son of God, born in a Cave at Bethlehem. Paul the Hermit so prized the poverty of his Divine Master that he fled to the desert, where he could find nothing to possess and nothing to covet. He mad a mere cavern for his dwelling; a palm tree provided him with food and clothing; a fountain gave him wherewith...

    Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul (R) praised President Trump on Monday for his tweet calling for an end to aid to Pakistan, telling Trump he "couldn't agree more" with Trump's assertion that the country shelters terrorists on the run from U.S. forces. In a tweet Monday afternoon, Paul responded to Trump's first tweet of 2018 in which the president sharply criticized Pakistan's government. "I couldn’t agree more. I’ve been fighting to end aid to Pakistan for years and will again lead the charge in the Senate. Let’s make this happen @realDonaldTrump," Paul tweeted. I couldn’t agree more. I’ve been fighting to...
  • Ron Paul: Trump may be vulnerable to 2020 GOP primary challenge

    Washington Examiner ^ | December 26, 2017 | Steven Nelson
    Former Texas Rep. Ron Paul says a yearlong economic boom under President Trump is “a bit of an illusion” and that debt, inflation, and inequality could cause turmoil that benefits a “hardcore nucleus” of libertarians. The libertarian Republican leader told the Washington Examiner that Trump could face a strong challenger in the 2020 GOP primary, especially if “things are really much worse." “The big opening for us is the fact that this system is coming apart. We’re on the verge of something like what happened in ‘89 when the Soviet system just collapsed,” he said. “I’m just hoping our system...
  • Long-running feud over grass clippings preceded attack on Rand Paul

    The attack that left Republican Sen. Rand Paul with six cracked ribs outside his Kentucky home came after a long-simmering disagreement with a 17-year neighbor over grass clippings, according to a report. An acquaintance of both men said the fellow doctors stood in their yards about 10 years ago and shouted at each other about grass clippings that Paul’s lawn mower sprayed onto Boucher’s property, the Washington Post reported. The feds said they are investigating the case, in which Boucher could be charged under federal statutes that include a provision that bars assaults on members of Congress and other high-ranking...
  • Sen. Rand Paul: Here's why I plan to vote for the Senate tax bill (and my colleagues should step up)

    Fox News ^ | 11/27/2017 | Sen. Rand Paul
    One of the fundamental problems in Washington is the attitude that the money that people make belongs to the government. That’s why you hear arguments about how much a tax cut “costs,” or big government advocates disingenuously and breathlessly complaining about the people who pay taxes getting a tax cut. I believe it is the other way around. Our default position should be that the money you earn belongs to you, and government has to justify why it should take it from you. Currently, there are at least 97 different federal taxes. The tax code that instructs people how they...

    It's been 19 days since Rand Paul was attacked by a neighbor while mowing his lawn. And on Wednesday, the story got even stranger as the wife of the Kentucky Republican Senator wrote a piece for CNN detailing the extent of the injuries he suffered in the attack. "There have been several nights where I had my hand on my phone ready to call 911 when his breathing became so labored it was terrifying," writes Kelley Paul of her husband. What's even more striking is how Kelley Paul describes the attack -- and the motive behind it... In the immediate...

    Based on his social media profiles, Boucher was fervently anti-Trump and anti-Republican. Seven neighbors think the landscaping excuse is bogus as does Sen. Paul... I understand being cautious about assigning motive until the facts provide one, but what’s left here? Clearly, everyone, including Paul believe the defendant’s excuse is just that. More frightening than the attack itself is the relative neglect this story has received. The press ought to be knocking down doors trying to get to the bottom of this. A lawmaker attacked in his own homes and for what look to be politically motivated reasons is no small...

    A Bowling Green man was arrested Friday and charged with fourth-degree assault following an incident at the Bowling Green home of U.S. Sen. Rand Paul. Rene Boucher, 59, is in the Warren County Regional Jail in lieu of a $5,000 bond, according to online jail records available Saturday afternoon. Paul suffered minor injuries, according to a news release from Kentucky State Police Post 3 in Bowling Green, which did not describe the circumstances surrounding the incident. Kelsey Cooper, Paul's Kentucky communications director, issued a statement to the Daily News indicating that "Senator Paul is fine." "Senator Paul was blindsided and...

    Reuters/AOL ^ | Oct 20th 2017 11:48AM
    U.S. Republican senator Rand Paul on Friday appeared to back the Trump administration's sweeping tax cut plan, saying he was "all in" for massive tax cuts even as the Senate passed a key budget measure without his support one day earlier. On Thursday, the Republican-controlled Senate approved the budget resolution for the 2018 fiscal year, with Paul casting the lone Republican vote against it. That approval paves the way for their tax-cut proposal that would add up to $1.5 trillion to the federal deficit over the next decade to pay for the cuts. U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday signaled...

    The Pacific walrus will not be designated as endangered or threatened under the Endangered Species Act, the Fish and Wildlife Service announced Wednesday, reversing an Obama administration finding that the walrus deserved protections because of the effects of global warming and receding Arctic sea ice. "Their thorough review, driven by the best available data and science, found that the population of Pacific walrus is robust and healthy, and has proven that it can adapt to the changing conditions in the Arctic," said Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, who is chairwoman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.

    Washington Examiner ^ | 9/27/2017 | Pete Kasperowicz
    Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., predicted Wednesday that President Trump would soon move on his own to make health insurance more affordable, after the Senate failed again this week to advance any bill to reform federal healthcare policy. Paul he has been pitching the idea of using the Employee Retirement Income Security Act to let people buy insurance across state lines. That law already allows corporations to buy insurance across state lines for their workers if they are located in several states. Paul's idea is to let individuals form associations and do the same thing, and he said Trump administration officials...
  • Vanity - Mitch McConnell....The maJority senate leader?

    Mitch McConnell, is he the Republican Majority Senate Leader or a weak sister hiding in the closet of do and accomplish nothing productive or measurable. The great Senate majority leaders in American history were all leaders who kept their caucuses in line and ordered them to vote as guided by their leadership. Mitch McConnell is far from being one of these. He is weak, powerless and lets his caucus run all over him as they desire. Without further verbage or ado, I expect McConnell to do a 180 degree turn and "ORDER", Senators, Paul, Collins, Murkowski & that low life,...

    We have been at war for far too long. Afghanistan is a war that cannot be won. We are not there because of 9/11. We are there to expand the empire and it should not be allowed to continue. So much money is being wasted and one senator has had enough. Kentucky’s Rand Paul sat on the floor of the Senate Monday night to protest the indefensible foreign policy pouring out of the last few administrations. Paul is the one real fiscal conservative in Washington who is opposed to our nation building and endless foreign wars. After 16 years in...

    Christian tradition maintains that after Rome nearly burned to the ground, Nero engaged in a brutal crackdown on Christians which led to the executions of Peter and Paul. On the evening of July 18, in the scorching summer of 64 CE, a fire started in a shop under the Circus Maximus in Rome. The fire quickly spread to nearby homes and businesses and the Circus itself. The fire burned for six days, ravaging the city. It left only four of Rome’s fourteen quarters untouched. The reigning emperor, Nero, a man known for his cruelty and love of theater, scapegoated the...

    President Donald Trump suggested in a tweet that if Republicans remain unable to pass their current healthcare bill, they should immediately repeal and then replace Obamacare. President Trump previously endorsed the Senate healthcare bill, otherwise known as the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA), however, since Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell delayed the vote on the BCRA President Trump has looked into other options. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) recently suggested repealing and replacing Obamacare in two separate bills, an idea that apparently President Trump might endorse if Republicans remain unable to pass the BCRA. Trump tweeted: "If Republican Senators are unable...

    Ron Paul has an article on his site written by Mike Whitney entitled SETH RICH, CRAIG MURRAY AND THE SINISTER STEWARDS OF THE NATIONAL SECURITY STATE. It is an excellent read, being very informative into every aspect of the Seth Rich murder investigation coupled with facts surrounding the case. It is the best I have read thus far. In addition I found a video in which Seth Rich is speaking! In this video he is actually asking questions about Election Commission voting. Here it is: https://youtu.be/xGZLqNgLZ8M Published on Jun 7, 2017 video of Seth Rich asking questions about voter fraud...
