    Anthony J. Russo, a Rand researcher in the late 1960s who encouraged Daniel Ellsberg to leak the Pentagon Papers and stood trial with him in the Vietnam War-era case that triggered debates over freedom of the press and hastened the fall of a president, has died. He was 71.
  • Rand Paul: Trump Cares 'Very Deeply' About Haiti, Financed Medical Mission Trip

    01/14/2018 8:04:15 PM PST · by Kaslin · 28 replies ^ | January 14, 2018 | Timothy Meads
    Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that charges of racism against President Donald J. Trump are unfounded in part because of the 45th president's large financial contribution to Dr. Paul's2015 Haiti medical mission trip. “I think it’s unfair to sort of paint him, ‘oh well, he’s a racist,’ when I know for a fact that he cares very deeply about the people of Haiti because he helped finance a trip where they would get vision back for 200 people in Haiti,” Paul said. In 2015, Rand Paul was part of a group of U.S. doctors who...

    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...
  • Rand: Without Scalise's Security Detail, It Would Have Been 'Massacre'

    ...Had Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) not been at Wednesday’s congressional baseball practice, the scene would have been much more deadly, several witnesses have concluded. Scalise, who was shot in the hip, is currently in surgery. Five people in total were shot, including a Scalise staffer and Capitol police officers, who arrived at the scene within three minutes, managing to subdue the attacker. A shaken Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) explained to the media that because Scalise is the Majority Whip, he is one of few members of Congress who always travels with his security detail. Rand Paul: "I think we're lucky...

    Rand said, “I can tell you, that I think with absolute certainty, nobody would have survived without the Capitol Hill Police. They saved everybody’s life. Incredibly brave and deserve everyone’s praise, because, with this guy, who knows what his — how heavily armed he was, but nobody else had a weapon. So, he was just killing everyone — he would have. … They deserve our gratitude for saving — it would have been a massacre without them.”

    President Trump brought Republican Sen. Rand Paul to Trump National Golf Club in Virginia on Sunday to play golf with him, a little more than a week after the party's healthcare bill failed. "They're discussing a variety of topics, including healthcare," White House deputy press secretary Stephanie Grisham said. Budget director Mick Mulvaney, a former leading House conservative, also joined the two.
  • Sen. Rand Paul: Been told to ‘take it or leave it’ on Obamacare strategy

    washingtontimes ^ | Tom Howell Jr.
    Sen. Rand Paul on Friday said conservatives are being told to “take it or leave it” when it comes to the emerging House GOP plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, setting up a major clash with leaders hoping to mark up legislation as soon as next week. Republicans are trying to repeal and replace as much of the Affordable Care Act as they can under a fast-track budget process that allows them to avoid a Democratic filibuster. Leaders have outlined a three-week timetable to get the legislation over to the Senate, where it must meet arcane budget rules and gather...
  • Rand Paul: We’re “Very Lucky” Trump Is in Charge and Not McCain

    Meanwhile, McCain continued his attacks on Trump this morning comparing his actions to a dictator. The Hill reported: Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) ripped fellow Republican Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) on Sunday after McCain criticized President Trump’s escalating war of words with the media. He argued that the nation is “very lucky” that Trump is president and not McCain, who won the 2008 GOP nomination but lost to Barack Obama in the general election. Paul said that McCain’s recent criticisms of Trump are driven by his “personal dispute” with the president over foreign policy. He added that McCain and Trump are...

    Michael Malice comes to libertarianism more from a Randian perspective, and Tom from a Rothbardian one. Michael recently read The Betrayal of the American Right, Rothbard's part-history, part-autobiography. The resulting conversation is really excellent -- possibly my favorite Malice appearance yet.

    Donald J. Trump is that hero, a hero right out of the pages of an Ayn Rand novel… and I’m going to make you see it. I can hear the scoffing protests now. “Donald Trump is base, abrasive, rough, and uncouth,” and so was Ellis Wyatt. “Donald Trump inherited his money;” so did Francisco d’Anconia. “Donald Trump attacks people;” so did Ragnar Danneskjöld. “Donald Trump only wants to make money and put his name on everything;” so did Hank Rearden. “Donald Trump just wants to blow things up;” so did Howard Roark. “Donald Trump is horrible to women;” actually, “horrible”...

    CHINA could match the military might of the US in a decade and any conflict between them would rock the entire world economy. That is the frightening warning issued by research organisation, Rand Corporation, which highlights how the US and China remain at loggerheads over several regional disputes with large military forces operating closely together. In its new report War With China, Thinking Through the Unthinkable, Rand warn any conflict would ultimately be intense, destructive and protracted. “If an incident occurred or a crisis overheated, both have an incentive to strike enemy forces before being struck by them,” the report...

  • Paul wanted Kentucky to caucus, still taking Trump fire

    The Kentucky Republican Caucus on Saturday has been largely funded by Sen. Rand Paul who convinced the state party to switch from a primary format to get around a state law prohibiting someone from appearing on the ballot in multiple federal races. Paul was seeking a second Senate term and running as a 2016 GOP presidential candidate until he suspended his campaign last month.

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) plans to force senators to vote on the State Department’s approval of $700 million worth of fighter jets to Pakistan using an obscure Senate rule that hasn’t been invoked in decades. The Obama administration cleared the sale of eight F-16 fighter jets to Pakistan last month. But Paul is invoking the obscure Arms Export Control Act of 1976 in a bid to shoot down the sale with a resolution of disapproval. "Over the last few years we have seen that Pakistan is an uncertain ally when it comes to cooperating with the United States,” Paul said...

    A top staffer for Sen. Rand Paul’s campaign said Wednesday that Donald Trump was a key reason for Paul’s failed presidential bid. Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul announced Wednesday morning that he was dropping out of the race for the White House after a poor performance at the Iowa Caucuses. Paul’s Chief Strategist Doug Stafford led a conference call with reporters Wednesday morning where he said Trump sucked the “oxygen out of the room,” making it nearly impossible for Paul to get his message out.
