    Senator Rand Paul is promising to file a resolution of disapproval to block an arms deal with Saudi Arabia as soon as the administration formally notifies congress, Senate sources tell Big League Politics. On Friday, it was reported that Trump is planning to announce the arms deal during his trip to the nation over the weekend. The terms have not been officially announced, and value ranges from being reported as $100 billion to as much as $300 billion. The action by the Kentucky senator will force a congressional vote on the executive action. He will reportedly be citing the war...

    WASHINGTON -- Attorney General Jeff Sessions' new memo for federal prosecutors to pursue harsher mandatory minimum sentences drew a quick rebuke from Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who accused the administration of underscoring "injustice" against minority communities. "It is a core principle that prosecutors should charge and pursue the most serious, readily provable offense. This policy affirms our responsibility to enforce the law, is moral and just, and produces consistency. This policy fully utilizes the tools Congress has given us. By definition, the most serious offenses are those that carry the most substantial guidelines sentence, including mandatory minimum sentences," states the...

    Well, this is interesting. Last week, a report circulated which indicated “the Obama administration conducted more than 35,000 searches on NSA intercepts seeking information about Americans during the divisive 2016 election year.” Obviously, the biggest fish caught in the “incidental surveillance” net was President Donald Trump. The former administration has been claiming that Trump was never targeted, he was just surveilled due to associations with others.

    Looking at all the smiling faces on the other side of the aisle, I have to ask: are Democrats still the minority party? You would be tempted to think the $1 trillion government funding deal is like Christmas morning for them, as Republicans have handed them free media to brag about how much of the President’s agenda they have stopped. You’ll see it in the news as an “Omnibus spending bill,” when it should really be called “the Status Quo Protection Act.” President Hillary Clinton would have been proud of this bill. It tosses out campaign promises as it continues...

    On Thursday’s broadcast of “The Laura Ingraham Show,” Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) said, “I think that Congress, and the people who appropriate the money, we should think about whether or not we should be sending money to universities that only have one set of speech.” When asked if he thought the “federal government, Donald Trump” could “impound” funds that would go a place like UC-Berkeley, Rand answered, “I think if it were a liberal president, and they were shutting down speech, they could probably do it. I don’t think that — I don’t think impounding funds is probably going to...

    After seeing the gruesome images of the chemical weapons attack in Syria, President Trump has threatened to take military action. “My attitude toward Syria and Assad has changed very much,” the president said on Wednesday. United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley has also said the U.S. might use force in Syria. On Thursday, Sen. Rand Paul said any military action taken against Syria by the U.S. would need congressional approval. Appearing on Fox News Radio’s “Kilmeade and Friends,” Paul said: The first thing we ought to do is probably obey the Constitution. When Nikki Haley came before my committee and I...

    It looked like Republican infighting drove ObamaCare out of bounds two weeks ago, but it might have gotten rescued by a few chip shots on Sunday. Sen. Rand Paul, a vociferous critic of the American Health Care Act and ally of the intransigent House Freedom Caucus, played a round of golf with President Donald Trump and OMB director Mick Mulvaney two days ago — and suddenly declared himself “very optimistic” about a deal to pass the AHCA after all.Now, the Washington Examiner reports that the deal could be announced as early as today, even if it takes a week...

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told reporters Monday afternoon that former Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice “ought to testify under oath” after Bloomberg News’s Eli Lake revealed that, during the presidential transition, she deliberately sought to “unmask” President Donald Trump’s associates from intelligence surveillance. Paul called the reports that Rice made dozens of requests to learn more about the identities of anonymous people thought to be close to the Trump transition team, inadvertently caught on tape during investigations into foreign persons of intelligence interest, “enormous news.” “If it is allowed, we shouldn’t be allowing it. I don’t think we should...
