- How scandal could touch Rand Paul, McConnell (The Courier Journal, Aug 30, 2014):
Jesse Benton may have mitigated harm to U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell’s campaign when he resigned in reaction to a burgeoning bribery scandal on Friday, but it could send shock waves through the expected 2016 presidential campaign of Sen. Rand Paul, who is his uncle by marriage.
Benton quit following the guilty plea announced Wednesday of Kent Sorenson, a former Iowa state senator who admitted to switching his support in the 2012 Iowa caucuses from former Rep. Michele Bachmann to Paul’s father, former U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, in exchange for $73,000. Continue reading »
- Rand Paul: Cut aid to Palestinians unless they recognize Israel as Jewish state (JTA, April 28, 2014):
WASHINGTON (JTA) — U.S. Sen. Rand Paul said he will introduce legislation that would cut U.S. funding to the Palestinian Authority unless its government recognized Israel as a Jewish state.
Paul (R-Ky.), a likely contender for the Republican presidential nod in 2016, said the law was needed because of the interim governance agreement last week between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority.

- Did Rand Paul Endorse Establishment Republican To Block “Liberty Democrat”? (Benn Swann, April 28, 2014):
Did Senator Rand Paul endorse an establishment Republican to protect her seat from a “liberty Democrat”? As we reported Saturday, Senator Rand Paul was the keynote speaker at the Maine GOP Convention on Saturday where he endorsed Republican Senator Susan Collins in her re-election bid this year.
Speaking to the Portland Herald Press minutes before taking the stage, Paul said,
“I whole-heartedly endorse Senator Collins for re-election. I think she is doing a great job for Maine and for the country.” He went on to say that he was unaware of her stance on the NSA saying, “I don’t really know, exactly, what her position is on the NSA; you’d have to ask her about that.”
As we exclusively reported, Senator Collins record on NSA spying and wiretapping is not strong for those who believe in liberty.
Collins voted YES on extending the PATRIOT Act’s roving wiretaps in February of 2011.
Voted NO on requiring a FISA court warrant to monitor US-to-foreign calls. (Feb 2008)
Voted YES on removing need for FISA warrant for wiretapping abroad. (Aug 2007)
Voted NO on preserving habeas corpus for Guantanamo detainees. (Sep 2006)
Voted NO on requiring CIA reports on detainees & interrogation methods. (Sep 2006)
Voted YES on reauthorizing the PATRIOT Act. (Mar 2006)
Voted YES on extending the PATRIOT Act’s wiretap provision. (Dec 2005)
Based on those issues one would question why Senator Rand Paul, who is building his campaign largely on the issue of NSA spying and the restoration of Constitutional rights and civil liberties, would say Susan Collins “is doing a great job for Maine and for the country.”
In a Time magazine op-ed, Rand Paul said:
“Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine is a gross violation of that nation’s sovereignty and an affront to the international community. His continuing occupation of Ukraine is completely unacceptable, and Russia’s President should be isolated for his actions.… Putin must be punished for violating the Budapest Memorandum, and Russia must learn that the U.S. will isolate it if it insists on acting like a rogue nation.”
“This whole thing that Putin is the big cause of the trouble and yet there’s pretty good evidence that the Europeans as well as the American government had to contrive to have the overthrow of a government that most people say had been elected,” Paul said.
“And then for them to come along and say ‘Well, it’s an illegal government,’ and they want to have a referendum now, you know, in Crimea ‘Oh no that’s not permissible’,” he added. Continue reading »
- Paul: My Foreign Policy ‘in the Same Line as’ George H. W. Bush’s (National Review Online, March 9, 2014):
Despite portrayals that his foreign-policy stance is out of line with most in his party, Rand Paul insists his approach is within the Republican mainstream. Along with public opinion behind him, the Kentucky senator, who has been described as a having a “non-interventionist” stance, said on Fox News Sunday that many of his Republican colleagues agreed with him on the issues of Syria and Ukraine.
He also pointed to former leading Republicans as sharing his views on international issues. “I see my foreign policy in the same line as what came out of probably the first George Bush,” Paul said. He also cited similarities between his approach and that of Ronald Reagan and Henry Kissinger.

- Rand Paul is a FRAUD and another Obama! He has committed Treason against his Father and Now U.S. Citizens. I have NO Respect for him at All! (Sherry Questioning All, April 24, 2013):
First I believed in Rand Paul when he ran for the Senate in Kentucky. I supported his run and win.
Then during the 2012 Presidential election when he committed Treason and was a traitor against his father by endorsing Romney, I never listened to another word he said until his epic filibuster..
He redeemed himself in my eyes when he accomplished the epic 13 hour filibuster which I actually watched more than half of. I was thrilled he was standing up for all of us and the country. I became a Rand Paul supporter once more.
NOW…. he has committed treason against the U.S. people and he has nullified his epic filibuster by going directly against it.
Rand Paul says at 2:30 point of the video below “If someone is coming out of a liquor store with a gun and $50 dollars I don’t care if a drone kills him or a policeman kills him.”
You – Rand Paul….. Don’t Care if a drone is JUDGE JURY AND EXECUTIONER of someone ROBBING a store? So someone should be KILLED for robbing a Store?
How Dare you….. believe drones should KILL people during a crime instead of letting a jury of their peers convict them!!!! Also, who is to say the real robber didn’t toss the person out with the gun, no one knows what the real situation is, until evidence is completely provided in a COURT ROOM!
You are not a TRUE Constitutionalist and you are a traitor, Rand Paul!!
I hope the people of Kentucky Vote You OUT! I will NEVER support you, We can not TRUST you! You are a true politician. Not trustworthy, a player of the game and I have NO respect for you!
- Boston Bombing Changes Lawmakers’ Views on Drone Killings of Americans on U.S. Soil (US News, April 23, 2013):
After Boston, lawmakers see case for use of drones to kill Americans
In the aftermath of the Boston bombing standoff that ended last Friday, lawmakers have changed their tune on whether a drone should ever be used to target an American citizen on U.S. soil.
The use of drones to kill American citizens is not “inherently illegal,” as long as that citizen is a “combatant,” a constitutional expert told a Senate panel considering the implications of targeted killings Tuesday.
YouTube Added: 06.03.2013
Rand Paul’s filibuster today, during which he demanded the Obama administration promise not to kill Americans with drone strikes on U.S. soil, was interrupted by a test of the government’s emergency alert system.
Footage from C-SPAN shows the Kentucky Senator speaking before an EAS alert for the New York region cuts in. The system has stoked concerns that the government is preparing to take over all civilian communication outlets under the guise of a national emergency.
Some will see the timing of the emergency alert test as more than coincidental, given what Senator was discussing during his filibuster of John Brennan’s nomination to be CIA director. “No American should ever be killed in their house without warrant and some kind of aggressive behavior by them,” Paul said on the Senate floor. “To be bombed in your sleep? There’s nothing American about that . . . [Obama] says trust him because he hasn’t done it yet. He says he doesn’t intend to do so, but he might. Mr. President, that’s not good enough . . . so I’ve come here to speak for as long as I can to draw attention to something that I find to really be very disturbing.” “I will not sit quietly and let him shred the Constitution,” Paul added.”No person will be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process,” he said, quoting the Fifth Amendment.
- Eric Holder: Drone strikes against Americans on U.S. soil are legal (Examiner, March 5, 2013):
Attorney General Eric Holder can imagine a scenario in which it would be constitutional to carry out a drone strike against an American on American soil, he wrote in a letter to Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky.
“It is possible, I suppose, to imagine an extraordinary circumstance in which it would be necessary and appropriate under the Constitution and applicable laws of the United States for the President to authorize the military to use lethal force within the territory of the United States,” Holder replied in a letter yesterday to Paul’s question about whether Obama “has the power to authorize lethal force, such as a drone strike, against a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil, and without trial.”
Paul condemned the idea. “The U.S. Attorney General’s refusal to rule out the possibility of drone strikes on American citizens and on American soil is more than frightening – it is an affront the Constitutional due process rights of all Americans,” he said in a statement. Continue reading »
- Rand Paul’s Third Letter to the CIA: Can You Kill with Drones in the USA? (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Feb 27, 2013):
This letter is a few days old, but is very important for every American to be aware of. Essentially, Rand Paul is threatening to filibuster Barack Obama’s nominee for the CIA, John Brennan, due to his refusal to answer a simple question:
Do you believe that the President has the power to authorize lethal force, such as a drone strike, against a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil, and without trial?
This should not be a complicated question to answer, yet it seems Obama, Brennan and pretty much every other little power consumed bureaucrat is incapable of doing so. Below is Rand Paul’s letter reprinted in full (my emphasis added). Continue reading »

- Rand Paul: U.S. should make clear to world ‘any attack on Israel will be treated as an attack on the United States’ (The Daily Caller, jan 25, 2013):
Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul took what very well could be considered his most pro-Israel stance yet, saying in an interview that an attack on Israel should be treated as an attack on the United States.
Asked whether the United States would stand with Israel and provide it foreign aid if the Jewish state were attacked by its enemies, Paul went a step further.
“Well absolutely we stand with Israel,” he said in an interview with Breitbart News, “but what I think we should do is announce to the world – and I think it is pretty well known — that any attack on Israel will be treated as an attack on the United States.”

- Is Rand Paul a born again Zionist? (Telegraph, Jan 18, 2013):
Last week Rand Paul went to Israel, and it looks like he came back with more than just a lousy t-shirt. The goal was to put some distance between his antiwar libertarianism and the accusation that he’s anti-Israel – and he may have had some success. During his tour of the Holy Land he met with Benjamin Netanyahu, Simon Peres and Naftali Bennett – a Right-wing leader associated with the settlement movement. On the settlements, Paul opined that Obama had no right to tell Israel where to build. On bombing Gaza, he said, “I don’t think you need to call me on the phone and get permission.” David Lane, the evangelical conservative who organised the trip called it a “home run.” When he did get home, Paul called reporters to let them know that he’s also coming out in favour of a new missile defence programme. The Business Insider concludes that he’s turned in to a “pro-Israel defence hawk.” Some antiwar libertarians are even worried that he’s become a “Christian Zionist” by association.
In my opinion Rand Paul has lost all credibily by endorsing elite puppet Mitt Romney.

Sen. Rand Paul has made plans to nullify President Obama’s 23 executive actions on gun control policy, claiming the president is exercising too much power and demonstrating a ‘king complex’.
The Kentucky Senator made a Wednesday night appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity”, during which he outlined the legislation he hopes to pass in order to prevent the president from using his executive powers.
“Our founding fathers were very concerned about us having separation of powers. They didn’t want to let the president become a king,” Paul said. “In this bill, we will nullify anything the president does that smacks of legislation.”
- NDAA Indefinite Detention Provision Mysteriously Stripped From Bill (Huffington Post, Dec 19, 2012):
WASHINGTON — Congress stripped a provision Tuesday from a defense bill that aimed to shield Americans from the possibility of being imprisoned indefinitely without trial by the military. The provision was replaced with a passage that appears to give citizens little protection from indefinite detention.
The amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013 was added by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), but there was no similar language in the version of the bill that passed the House, and it was dumped from the final bill released Tuesday after a conference committee from both chambers worked out a unified measure.

Rand Paul is not one of the big names, but Rand Paul has been rumored as a possible presidential contender in 2016, and today he confirmed that is indeed a possibility. “I want to be part of the national debate,” he told ABC News. “I’m not going to deny that I’m interested.” Paul also discussed taxes – he’ll never vote to raise them – and his dad’s legacy. “He’s grown the party in a tremendous way,” Rand said, crediting Ron with bringing in more young people, independents, libertarians, and constitutionalists. “There’s a sea change on the Republican side, and I think my father’s responsible for some of that.” newser.com
Also remember that we have already started the war …

Paul said that Iran would be justified in responding to sanctions by blocking the Straits of Hormuz, adding that the country blocking the strategically important strait is “so logical” since they have no other recourse.
