  • Sen. Rand Paul to campaign for Mo Brooks in Alabama

    06/13/2022 9:39:48 PM PDT · by RandFan · 15 replies ^ | June 13 | By Ashley Remkus
    Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky will visit Alabama to campaign for Congressman Mo Brooks in the Republican primary runoff for U.S. Senate. The Brooks campaign announced that Paul, Republican of Kentucky, will headline two townhall events on Friday in Homewood and Huntsville. Paul in March became the first sitting member of the Senate to endorse Brooks in the race, saying in part, “Mo has proven time and time again he will stand up for liberty and do what he thinks is right.” Brooks’ campaign announced the events on Friday, just hours before former President Donald Trump said he was endorsing...

    The top Democrat and Republican in the US Senate joined forces in a rare moment of unity on Thursday in an attempt to pass $40bn in aid for Ukraine, only to be stymied by a single Republican lawmaker: the Kentucky libertarian Rand Paul. Faced with the prospect of an extended delay for the package that passed the House of Representatives on Tuesday, the Senate majority leader, Chuck Schumer, and his Republican counterpart, Mitch McConnell, sought to move forward on the aid package only to be blocked by Paul, a fiscal hawk who objects to the amount of spending proposed. The...
  • Sen. Rand Paul vindicated with judge’s ruling to end travel mask mandate

    washingtonexaminer ^ | April 26 | Christopher Tremoglie
    Paul's crusade to end the mask mandate began with introducing the Travel Mask Mandate Repeal Act in July 2021. While the bill was unsuccessful, it paved the way for the eventual end of the mask mandate. What the senator considered a "bureaucratic power grab," many Democrats considered a necessity to combat the spread of COVID-19. Ultimately, so far, the courts have sided with Paul. The Biden administration's Department of Justice filed an appeal on the ruling last week. Last month, Paul forced a vote in the Senate on his resolution to repeal the travel mask mandate. It passed with bipartisan...
  • PAUL BLASTS BIDEN: 'Gaffes A National Security Risk,' 'He Lives in Alternate Universe'

    Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) dropped by Jesse Watters Primetime to discuss President Joe Biden’s recent string of gaffes while stumbling through Europe. Paul has concerns that Joe’s gaffes pose a serious security risk. “A lot of times when you’re around somebody who’s in cognitive decline, you find yourself trying to help them with a sentence, trying to help them complete it… but we shouldn’t have to do that for the commander-in-chief,” Paul says. “And, it is actually a national security risk because he’s sending signals that no one in their right mind would want to send to Russia at this...

    Romney, Rand Paul, and Rob Portman vote with Democrats in support of State Dept nominee Three Senate Republicans shattered party unity to advance the nomination of a State Department nominee who has been accused of lying to Congress about the terms of a new nuclear agreement with Iran. On Tuesday, the nomination of Barbara Leaf, a veteran Democratic foreign policy hand who was nominated last year to serve as assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern affairs, was approved by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee after three Republicans—Sens. Mitt Romney (Utah), Rand Paul (Ky.), and Rob Portman (Ohio)—abandoned their party...

    On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Jesse Watters Primetime,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) stated that we shouldn’t have to treat President Joe Biden like someone who is declining cognitively by having to help him say what he really means, Biden’s “intemperate speech” is “a national security risk.” And Biden lives “in an alternate universe where he just says they’re not true and he didn’t say them.” Host Jesse Watters asked, [relevant exchange begins around 4:25] “Are you surprised by these comments, Senator?”

    Previewing President Biden’s trip to Europe last week, US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said that, “the president is traveling to Europe to make sure we stay united.” That sure didn’t go as planned. This may have been the most disastrous – and dangerous – Presidential overseas trip ever.The US and its NATO allies have repeatedly proclaimed that “protecting Ukraine’s democracy” has never been about threatening Russia. Holding out NATO membership and sending billions of dollars in military equipment to Ukraine, starting under Trump, was not threatening Russia. CIA training camps in eastern Ukraine, where paramilitaries were trained on US...

    As long as the COVID-19 pandemic has been in the headlines, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., has been fighting against the authoritarian mandates that have resulted from government bureaucracies. Whether it has been questioning NIH director and media pariah Anthony Fauci or rallying behind movements that protest against policies that have hurt small businesses and even children, Paul has been as consistent as any elected official in the country when it has come to being correct on these issues. Paul has continued to be proven right as well. The CDC eventually came around to agreeing with him about cloth masks offering...

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) says he plans to subpoena Anthony Fauci's records if Republicans retake the Senate in November's midterm elections and he becomes chairman of a committee. Paul stands to become chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions (HELP) Committee if Republicans flip the 50-50 upper chamber. The current HELP ranking member, Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), is retiring."If we win in November, if I'm chairman of a committee, if I have subpoena power, we'll go after every one of [Fauci's] records," Paul said during an interview with conservative podcast host Lisa Boothe. "We'll have an investigator go...

    President Biden’s efforts to insert himself into the tense situation in Ukraine drew a sharp rebuke from Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky. Biden’s warning that “Ukraine is on the brink of being sacked by Russian troops” was rejected by Zelensky as “hysterical panic-mongering. We have already agreed to respect a previous truce with Russia and are working with Germany and France’s acting as mediators to try to reach a more definitive resolution of all the concerns of both sides.” Press Secretary Jen Psaki characterized the agreement and negotiations as “illegitimate. Without the participation and approval of the United States any settlement...

    @RandPaulDemocrats control the House, Senate and White House and we still can’t get cannabis banking reform bills passed. This should be a complete no brainer, as so many states have legalized now and we need business to operate. I would go much further and end the federal war on a plant entirely, but at LEAST let legal business operate as legal business. It probably doesn’t help that the two Democrat leaders are almost as old as the movie Reefer Madness, and clearly gave it two thumbs up when they watched it. The war on cannabis is among the many dumb...

    Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is facing criticism for requesting federal aid for his home state despite his long track record of opposing aid for other regions recovering from disasters. Kentucky was one of several Midwestern states rocked by tornadoes over the weekend. The storms decimated large portions of towns, and as many as 70 people are believed to have been killed in Western Kentucky. Paul shared a photo of a letter he sent to the Biden administration requesting "expeditious approval" of a request for federal aid made by Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear. Requests like these by senators in states affected...

    America's top infectious disease doctor Anthony Fauci on Thursday blasted Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) for suggesting he is somehow responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic. "You have said I am unwilling to take any responsibility for the current pandemic. I have no responsibility for the current pandemic," Fauci said. Paul accused Fauci of misleading the public about the role the National Institutes of Health played in funding potentially dangerous "gain of function research" in Wuhan China, and suggested that the SARS-CoV-2 virus was the result of such research, and then was released into the world because of a lab leak.

I live in fear. And in hope that conservative proudly revivalist Christian Prime Minister Scott Morrison (ScoMo) will stand up against them and defend human rights ( and human life.
