Rand Paul Opposes Trump’s Neocon Picks for CIA and State Department

GINA HASPEL. NOMINEE TO HEAD CIA.

MIKE POMPEO. NOMINEE TO HEAD STATE DEPARTMENT.

That group of patriotic American Nationalists who came to be known as the alt-right supported Donald Trump for the presidency because he said he wanted to end the senseless wars that the USA has been fighting since 9/11.

There’s every possibility that the alt-right will split on Rand Paul’s position on President Trump’s two latest nominees. Speaking only for myself, waterboarding terrorists is a good thing. Gina Haspel, that mild librarian-looking woman above is a strong supporter (or at least was) of torturing terrorists to extract information from them.

John McCain and now Rand Paul are on the record as strongly opposed to torturing our enemies, who have no reservations about torturing and murdering us. Opposing torture in advance gives the enemy more leeway to recruit new terrorists.

Where I part company with Trump’s picks and stand with Rand is on the issue of endless wars for Israel’s benefit. We don’t need a war with Iran or Russia.

Better choices for Trump would be antiwar nominees who would put America First, not the Jews and their insane desire to expand the borders of Israel.

WASHINGTON — Republican Sen. Rand Paul said Wednesday that he will oppose President Trump’s nominations of Mike Pompeo to be secretary of State and Gina Haspel to be CIA director.

Rand Paul’s Attacker Pleads Guilty in Federal Court, Facing 21 Months in Prison

RENE BOUCHER. GUILTY PLEA ACCEPTED.

The Democrat nut who attacked good guy Senator Rand Paul appears to be going to prison later this year.

He will be among fellow Democrats in prison, those Democrats of the darker tint.

ABC News

The man who attacked U.S. Sen. Rand Paul last year at his home in Kentucky pleaded guilty Friday morning in federal court.

Rene Boucher, 59, pleaded guilty to assaulting a member of Congress resulting in personal injury, a felony under federal law.

Trump: Dreamer Program “probably dead”

First, a brief word about my health. I started coming down with a cold or flu on Tuesday. It really took hold on Thursday and continues today.

I’m on the library patio right now, but will probably need to leave shortly to safeguard my health. It’s 56 degrees, which isn’t bad, but there’s a brisk, cold wind. I probably won’t get to post until Tuesday when the library reopens, although the high on Tuesday is supposed to be 28. We southerners don’t like Yankee weather.

Turning our attention to Trump, no one knows what kind of game he’s playing, maybe not even himself. What I think we can safely say is that his alleged “sh*thole” remark has opened the door wide for a significant cultural change.

All we need to do for now is spread photos like this one far and wide in order to trigger liberals and the (((other))) miscreants who defend the Haitian invasion of America.

WASHINGTON – Prospects for a bipartisan agreement to protect young immigrants from deportation and prevent a government shutdown later this week faded Sunday as key lawmakers traded sharp accusations and President Donald Trump said hopes for a deal were “probably dead.”

Negotiators spent last week seeking a solution that would shield young immigrants brought illegally to the United States as children, including the roughly 800,000 who secured work permits under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program created under President Barack Obama.

But a tentative deal worked out Thursday by a small bipartisan group of senators crumbled in an Oval Office meeting in which, according to multiple people involved, an angry Trump asked them why the United States should accept immigrants from “shithole countries” such as Haiti, El Salvador and African nations over those from European countries such as Norway.

That Daily News meme above is weak in comparison to this simple Tweet.

Fake News Media Continue to Publish Falsehoods to Protect Rand Paul’s Socialist Attacker

RAND PAUL AND WIFE.

American Senator Rand Paul will never be able to enjoy doing yardwork again after being attacked as he finished mowing his lawn last week.

The fake news media actually have the stupidity to write that Rand was brutally beaten by his next door neighbor, a man widely known to hold extreme socialist views, for growing pumpkins in his yard.

Pumpkins!

The most likely explanation is that his attacker stewed in anger over Rand’s libertarian principles. Being a little too old to be part of the Berkeley Antifa, he decided to LARP, to role play by attacking Rand.

Infowars

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul provided a health update Wednesday notifying everyone via social media that he’d sustained several broken bones and is suffering a lung condition after being attacked by one of his neighbors.

“‪I appreciate all of the kind words and support from everyone. A quick medical update: final report indicates six broken ribs and new X-ray shows a pleural effusion‬,” Sen. Paul wrote.

The update cleared up earlier reports which stated Rand had sustained five broken ribs and lung lacerations.

The Republican senator was assaulted last Friday at his home in Bowling Green, Kentucky, by next-door neighbor Rene Boucher, who tackled Paul as he was mowing his lawn in regards to an alleged property dispute.

According to The Washington Post, Boucher, who was charged with fourth-degree assault, identified as a socialist who was “pretty much the opposite of Rand Paul in every way,” and disagreed with the Republican agenda.

Boucher’s attorney insisted to Fox News Monday that the attack had nothing to do with politics.

“The unfortunate occurrence of November 3rd has absolutely nothing to do with either’s politics or political agendas,” said Boucher’s lawyer Matthew Baker. “It was a very regrettable dispute between two neighbors over a matter that most people would regard as trivial.”
In new reports Wednesday, however, neighbors disputed claims that a landscaping dispute was to blame, and asserted Boucher’s motive was unknown.

“As a friend and neighbor of the Paul family, I have been disturbed by the inaccuracies in numerous media accounts of the assault that occurred on Friday, November 3rd,” neighbor Travis Creed wrote in an email to Breitbart. “The stories of a ‘landscaping dispute,’ or a dispute of any sort between Rand Paul and Rene Boucher are erroneous and unfounded. The reason for Mr. Boucher’s bizarre attack is known only to him. Statements to the contrary are irresponsible and unnecessary.”

“The Pauls are and always have been great neighbors and friends. They take pride in their property and maintain it accordingly. Rand has enjoyed working on and maintaining his lawn for as long as I have known him. He was attacked on his property for no apparent reason and suffered serious injury. That is the only fact known at this time,” Creed said.

Another neighbor, Danny Renshaw, wrote, “The Senator and his wife Kelley are great people who would never harm anyone in any way.”
Boucher was arrested Friday and released Saturday on a $7,500 bond.

The left in America drank far too much Obama Kool-Aid. Now, they’re way off the deep end. You may recall that Rand was one of the Republican Congressmen who came under rifle fire at baseball practice earlier this year.

American liberalism must be destroyed as a political ideology. Liberals must be rooted out of schools, universities, churches, and the media. We have to return to sanity and truth.

Rand Paul Suffered 5 Broken Ribs in Assault by Leftist Neighbor in KY Home, Unable to Travel, in Extreme Pain

RAND PAUL. WILL NEED MONTHS TO RECOVER FROM INJURIES.

Senator Rand Paul is one of the few good guys.

Don’t believe me?

Ponder the fact that when he was assaulted on Saturday that he was mowing his own grass.

Can you picture Bill or Hillary Clinton mowing their grass? Ever?

When you’re not on the take you save a few bucks by doing your own chores and not hiring a MEXICAN!

Unfortunately, Rand may be sidelined for months by the injuries he sustained in a cowardly attack by a socialist neighbor.

NY Mag

After Rand Paul was assaulted by a neighbor on Friday, a spokesman for the Kentucky senator said he was “fine.” On Sunday afternoon a senior adviser, Doug Stafford, revealed that the senator actually suffered five broken ribs, and it’s unclear when he’ll be able to return to work.

“Senator Paul has five rib fractures including three displaced fractures,” Stafford said. “This type of injury is caused by high velocity severe force. It is not clear exactly how soon he will return to work, as the pain is considerable as is the difficulty in getting around, including flying.”

Stafford’s statement noted that displaced rib fractures can lead to life-threatening injuries, such as”hemopneumothorax, pneumothorax, pneumonia, internal bleeding, laceration of internal organs and lung contusions.” Paul is already suffering from lung contusions, or bruising. The pain from such injuries is severe, and can last from weeks to months.

Paul was attacked while he was mowing his lawn at his home in Bowling Green, Kentucky around 3:20 p.m. According to a criminal complaint, Paul “told police that his neighbor came onto his property and tackled him from behind, forcing him to the ground and causing pain.”

Police say Paul’s neighbor, Rene Boucher, admitted to attacking him. He was charged with one count of fourth-degree assault and released Saturday on $7,500 bond.

Boucher is a 59-year-old anesthesiologist who invented the Therm-a-Vest, a device meant to relieve back pain. David Ciochetty, a doctor with Interventional Pain Specialists in Bowling Green, told the Washington Post that Boucher worked there for about a year and a half in 2010 before leaving. Ciochetty said Paul, an ophthalmologist, had full staff privileges at the hospital at the time, so the two men, “must have worked together at some point.” Ciochetty was not aware of Boucher working anywhere else since leaving the hospital.

Boucher’s motive is unclear. Jim Bullington, a former member of the city commission, who knows both men, described Boucher as a socialist and said he’d been known to get into “heated discussions” with the libertarian senator about health care. However, it’s unclear if the assault had anything to do with politics. Paul was one of the few Republican senators who voted against repealing Obamacare last summer, but he said it was because the plan didn’t go far enough.

Paul’s absence could have consequences for the GOP legislative agenda, as Republicans usually only have two votes to spare. He was the only Republican senator who voted no last month on the budget resolution meant to set up tax reform, and after it passed, he signaled that he would try to push the legislation in a more conservative direction.

The charges against Boucher need to be upgraded. If convicted he should spend at least five years in prison. He could have killed Rand. What he did do was subvert our entire system of government.

I think Rand should be allowed to vote on bills from home since he can’t travel.

Senator Rand Paul Attacked While Mowing His Lawn in Kentucky

Senator Rand Paul dodged bullets when a Democrat attacked the Republican baseball game practice that left Representative Steve Scalise seriously wounded. That was earlier this year.

Rand’s neighbor blindsided him in today’s attack. Thank goodness a gun, bat, or knife wasn’t used.

Senator Paul, the son of Ron Paul, isn’t alt-right, but he has shown some independence from the globalist agenda. He’s not a lawyer. That alone is reason enough to like him.

New York Mag

Senator Rand Paul was assaulted by his neighbor while mowing his lawn at his residence in Bowling Green, Kentucky on Friday afternoon, suffering minor injuries. His assailant, a 59-year-old man named Rene Boucher, was subsequently arrested by Kentucky State Police and charged with 4th degree assault, a misdemeanor.

The FBI is currently investigating the incident to see if it was politically motivated, but according to WAVE 3 News, the GOP senator and his neighbor have had an ongoing feud. The Bowling Green News reports that, according to the police report, Paul said that Boucher attacked him from behind, knocking him to the ground. Paul apparently suffered injuries to his face and was having some trouble breathing on account of an injury to his rib.

Boucher, an anesthesiologist, was reportedly once registered as a Democrat and had criticized President Trump on his Facebook page — but it is not clear that the assault had anything to do with politics, and WAVE 3 didn’t find any Facebook posts from Boucher mentioning Paul. Boucher also once developed a back-pain vest which was marketed by QVC.

One of the senator’s spokespersons explained on Saturday that Paul was “blindsided” in the attack, but that the senator was “fine” and everything was “now a matter for the police.” That investigation is ongoing.

The Bowling Green Kentucky Daily News also has this story covered.

Arizona RINO Senator Jeff Flake Declines to Seek Reelection, Slams Trump on Senate Floor to Standing Ovation

Excerpt from AP News

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican Sen. Jeff Flake said Tuesday he would not seek re-election next year, delivering a forceful condemnation of the “flagrant disregard of truth and decency” and bemoaning political complicity in a Senate speech clearly directed at President Donald Trump.

The liars are not Donald Trump, Steve Bannon, and (((Stephen Miller,))) all of whom are finally getting out the message of truth about the swamp and the border-jumping invaders.

No, the liars are people like RINO (Republican in Name Only) Jeff Flake, John McCain, Lindsay Graham, and most of the rest of them.

Speaking to a rapt audience of other senators, the first-term Arizona lawmaker spelled out his frustration and disappointment in a floor speech before relaying the news that he would not be on the ballot in 2018.

“There are times we must risk our careers,” Flake said. “Now is such a time.”

Flake, you ***hole, you are risking NOTHING. Once out of the Senate you’ll be put into a million dollar a year law firm where you’ll do nothing to earn a legitimate living.

Stop, lying, you dumbass. No one with an ounce of brains is buying what you’re selling.

Flake, who has criticized the path that the Republican Party has taken under Trump, said the impulse “to threaten and scapegoat” could turn America and the GOP into a “fearful, backward-looking people” and a “fearful, backward-looking party.” Flake didn’t mention Trump by name, but clearly was directing his remarks at the president and his administration.

Some fears are justified, you POS. Anyone who would deny that globalism and the New World Order isn’t something to fear is a shill for the globalists.

That’s you, Flake, and most of those who gave you a standing ovation.

Flake, a former House member, is a conservative who favors limited government and free markets but one known to work on bipartisan legislation. Most notably, he has worked on immigration legislation aimed at finding a path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants living here illegally.

Conservative? Conservatives have conserved nothing. Cuckservative is a better word.

“A political career does not mean much if we are complicit in undermining these values,” he said. He received applause at the conclusion of his remarks.

His extraordinary speech came shortly after Trump had joined Senate Republicans at their weekly policy luncheon, and came a few hours after the president had engaged in a war of words with another retiring Republican senator, Bob Corker of Tennessee.

Republicans and Democrats were upset with the news.

“It is one of the most depressing things that has happened during my time in the Senate,” said Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., who called Flake a man of great integrity and principle.

Moderate Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine said she was “extraordinarily disappointed” and called Flake a “person of utmost integrity.”

After bucking Trump in a state the president won, Flake is bottoming out in polls. Republicans may be left with a hard-core conservative challenger that might win the primary but lose in the general election.

Flake was facing a challenge from former state Sen. Kelli Ward, who failed in her effort to take out Sen. John McCain last year but has gained some traction this year. Last week, former Trump strategist Steve Bannon attended a fundraiser for her.

Flake was going to lose. So he bailed. He’s no hero, although the Trump-hating media are portraying him as one.

Kudos to Rand Paul, who has apparently decided to side with the populists over the globalists. He’s a bit of a hero today:
