Sen. Rand Paul On Comey, Spooks and Obozocare, Oh My!

Here is an excellent interview with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) re: all the politicization and BS around the firing of Comey, the invasive power that the ‘investigative’ community has in the U.S. (which we all knew was coming with the Patriot Act), and Obozocare ‘repeal’.  Sen. Paul, one of the few usually sane voices in Congress, IMHO.

From foxnews.com dated 5/10/2017 entitled, “Paul: Dems Pushing a ‘Huge Myth’ About Trump Collusion With Russia“:

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said he’s seen no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, accusing Democrats of pushing a “huge myth.”

Paul said Democrats will now clamor for a special prosecutor to look into the matter following the firing of FBI Director James Comey.

“I don’t think there’s been any facts presented that anybody broke the law. … I don’t think there’s any evidence that anybody broke the law,” he said on “Fox & Friends” today.

Paul said he has not even heard an “accusation” on what crime Democrats believe may have been committed.

“[Democrats] were for getting rid of Comey too, but now they’re gonna say it’s all about this Russia investigation, which hasn’t produced one iota of evidence,” said Paul.

He said Comey’s firing “could not happen soon enough,” calling out Democrats for criticizing the move despite previously declaring they had lost faith in Comey after his handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

John McCain: Poster Boy for Term Limits

Last Wednesday, 3/15/2017, the TURD John McCain accused Senator Rand Paul of being an agent for V. Putin.  I was seeing blue as this is just another in a long line of crap promulgated by TURD McCain.  Then Sen. Paul, speaking of McCain, returns a day later with, “You know, I think he makes a really, really strong case for term limits.”  I would have said abortion or Planned Parenthood services but Sen. Paul nails it.  The TURDs like McCain have to be called out, enough turning the other check.

Sens. Rand Paul and John McCain are aligned on at least one thing when ...

From breitbart.com dated 03/16/2017 by Jeff Poor entitled, “Rand Paul Fires Back at John McCain: ‘Past His Prime,’ ‘A Little Bit Unhinged’“:


Thursday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) reacted to comments from his colleague Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) a day earlier on the Senate floor accusing him of being an agent for Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Paul had objected to a unanimous consent motion for legislation to advance Montenegro’s bid to join NATO, to which McCain had attacked Paul.

In his “Morning Joe” appearance, Paul ripped McCain as being “past his prime” and “unhinged,” and then went on to argue questions about NATO deserved more consideration.

You know, I think he makes a really, really strong case for term limits. I think maybe he’s past his prime; I think maybe he’s gotten a little bit unhinged.  I do think that when we talk about NATO, there can be a rational discussion about the pros and cons of expanding it. We currently have troops, combat troops, in about six nations. We have troops actively just stationed in probably a couple dozen others. We have a $20 trillion debt. And one of my favorite articles of the last couple years is one that talked about the angry McCains, and if they — if we put active troops and got involved in combat where McCain wants us to be, they put a little angry McCain on the globe, on the map. And it’s virtually everywhere. So his foreign policy is something that would greatly endanger the United States, greatly overextend us. And there has to be the thought whether or not it’s in our national interest to pledge to get involved with a war if Montenegro has an altercation with anyone.

There’s also another argument, is that when you ask the people of Montenegro, only about 40 percent or slightly less are actually in favor of this. They are close to Russia, they’re close to being sort of, like Ukraine, in the transition from Europe to Asia. Perhaps it would be good to be like Switzerland and be more neutral and trade with both.  So, there’s a lot of considerations but to call someone somehow an enemy of the state or a traitor might be considered by most reasonable people to be a little over the top.
