Sen. Rand Paul’s family receiving death threats after Democrat Cory Booker urged his followers to commit “acts of intimidation” against Trump supporters – Dave Hodges – The Common Sense Show

The wife of Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky has written an open letter to Democrat Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey, expressing deep anguish over the horrifying death threats that she and her family have been receiving ever since Booker told his followers to commit “acts of intimidation” against supporters of President Trump.

In her letter, Kelley Paul tells of how her family has had to turn their home into a residential prison, of sorts, complete with armed police patrols that make sure nobody tries to harm them. In addition to having their home address “doxxed,” Rand’s personal cell phone number was also made public, she says, noting that the threats they’ve faced have been relentless over the past year and a half.

“I now keep a loaded gun by my bed,” Kelley writes. “Our security systems have had to be expanded. I have never felt this way in my life.”

The Proxy War Over Trump’s Foreign Policy | The American Conservative

September 14, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Six years ago, Republican Senators Rand Paul and Lindsey Graham had a “crazy bastard” fight over foreign policy and civil liberties. Politico reported three years later that the entire purpose of Graham’s 2016 presidential run was to “take down Rand Paul.” In June, Jim Antle explored how “Rand Paul and Lindsey Graham battle for clout with Trump.”

This war between libertarian realist Paul and uber-hawk Graham is not new.

Rand Paul Stands Up for Peace – Antiwar.com Original

Libertarians are largely lost in the wilderness of the present era: wandering without a compass, either moral or ideological, and without a clue as to how to get home, never mind reach their ultimate goal of “freedom in our time.” Yes, that was the old slogan that we libertarians started out with: an optimistic battle-cry that, today, seems unrealistic, at best. But is it? And if it isn’t, who can show us the way forward?

My answer is simple: look at what Sen. Rand Paul is doing, and take a lesson. Instead of weeping and wailing about the loss of a “libertarian moment” that never really happened, Sen. Paul is making a difference. As Politico reports:

Ron and Rand Paul Call Out Foreign Policy Hysteria | The American Conservative

July 18, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

 

When Mitt Romney called Russia America’s “number one geopolitical foe” during the 2012 election campaign, Barack Obama mocked him: “The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back.” Vice President Joe Biden dismissedRomney as a “Cold War holdover.” Hillary Clinton said Romney was “looking backward.” John Kerry said “Mitt Romney talks like he’s only seen Russia by watching Rocky IV.”

Romney’s Russia warning came at a time when Republicans were eager to exploitPresident Obama’s hot mic comments to Russian president Dmitri Medvedev where he promised “more flexibility” on missile defense issues after the election. Romney, to the delight of Republican hawks and neoconservatives, was eager to portray Obama as capitulatingweak, and dangerous. For his part, Obama, who once vowed to “reset” U.S.-Russia relations, painted Romney as outdated for disparaging diplomacy.

Rand Paul, Pompeo, and the Koch Connection – Antiwar.com Original

Among the least convincing explanations ever: Sen. Rand Paul’s rationalization for changing his vote on the Pompeo nomination. When pressed, the Senator admits there were no real promises made, just a “general” sense that “we’re going to see less of these wars” after Mike Pompeo takes the helm of State. His fans were not impressed.

Adding annoyance to animadversion, it turned out that Sen. Paul’s vote wasn’t even the decisive one: two Democrats voted for Pompeo, and so his turnabout wasn’t just confusing to his base but also unnecessary.

The Senate’s Patriot Act Betrayal

June 2, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Watching the DC establishment respond to Senator Rand Paul’s efforts to sunset important aspects of the Patriot Act is like peeling back the skin of a decaying onion to expose the rot. Members of the Senate all take an oath to defend and protect the U.S. Constitution. Well those “public servants” who are doing their perfected “Potomac Two Step” would have the public believe that next week’s vote on some version of the House passed USA Freedom Act will halt the NSA from their systematic violation of 4th Amendment protections.

Rand Paul Begins Filibuster Of Patriot Act

May 20, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is filibustering the Patriot Act on the Senate floor, and it doesn’t look like he’s going to stop anytime soon.

The Republican presidential candidate took control of the floor Wednesday afternoon at 1:18 p.m., simultaneously explaining on Twitter that he is filibustering the renewal of the Patriot Act because of the National Security Agency’s program that collects bulk phone record data of American citizens.
