    U.S. Senator Rand Paul - Facts matter May 27, 2020 US Sen. Rand Paul (KY-R) was attacked in an opinion piece from KPR. The author was literally lecturing one of the few elected officials who actually has the scientific background and medical training to comment on the COVID studies. The following op-ed is Sen. Paul's response: I don’t think any medical professional would enjoy receiving a lecture from someone who is clearly scientifically illiterate. Ryland Barton’s charged, leftwing diatribe scolding me for making “claims [not] backed up by science” is itself ignorant of and misrepresentative of abundant scientific evidence. Take...

    While writing in an op-ed with Republican representative Andy Biggs in the USA Today, Republican Senator Rand Paul unloaded on director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci, accusing him of destroying the medical care system and ruining the economy. Paul and Biggs did admit that they appreciate Fauci's professional medial opinion however they came down hard on him for his weak and inaccurate coronavirus models including one that said 2.2 million people may die from the virus in the United States. “Fauci and company have relied on models that were later found to be...

    Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., along with Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., said in an op-ed Thursday that the coronavirus lockdown recommendations of Dr. Anthony Fauci have “emasculated” the health care system and “ruined” the economy. “Fauci and company have relied on models that were later found to be deficient. He even has suggested that he can’t rely on any of the models, especially if the underlying assumptions are wrong,” the pair wrote in an op-ed for USA Today. “Yet, Fauci persists in advocating policies that have emasculated the medical care system and ruined the economy.” They pointed to Fauci's testimony last...

    President Trump says he intentionally stayed out of negotiations on legislation to reform federal surveillance laws, but that he will closely review the final product before signing. “They have a lot of views on FISA. I didn’t get involved. I purposely said to Mitch, 'You do what you want. We’ll take a look,'” Trump said, referring to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) The Senate voted 80-16 last week to pass a bill with modest reform to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act after rejecting deeper change pushed by privacy advocates including Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.).

    Sen. Rand Paul slammed efforts by members of the U.S. intelligence community to evade restrictions within the Constitution in an attempt to target President Trump via former national security adviser Michael Flynn. On Thursday, the Kentucky statesman told Fox News host Tucker Carlson that he was appalled to learn members of the intelligence community allegedly circumvented the rule of law to surveil Flynn. "I think it's worse than you could even imagine," Paul said. "This is an end run on the Constitution. They had no warrant to listen to Flynn's conversations, so what they do is they go and they...

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Wednesday said that former Vice President Joe Biden had been "caught red-handed” eavesdropping on former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn after it was revealed the National Security Agency received a request in Biden's name to unmask Flynn’s identity in a classified transcript. Paul accused Biden of an “abuse of power” by requesting the authority to know the identity of the American citizen who was in contact with then-Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak by telephone after President Trump won the 2016 election. “This was being led by Vice President Biden, if not the president, and we...

    Sen. Rand Paul speaks to members of the press regarding FISA reform: "If you do not exempt Americans from the FISA court then the FISA court could do this again. They could go after a political candidate they could go after a religious figure, they can go after an issue group, a pro-life group. I'm very fearful of letting that power of remaining with FISA so my amendment would get Americans out of FISA and say if you wan to spy on Americans you can but you have to go to a regular Constitutional Court and get a warrant."

    Senator Rand Paul had the best five minutes in the first two hours of the hearing in the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee today. It is clear he has been abiding by shelter-in-place orders because his hair and beard look dangerously close to qualifying him to join the cast of Duck Dynasty. However, his questions could not have been more on point. The doctor in Rand Paul took over for the questioning. He began by challenging Dr. Fauci on the media narrative that there is no evidence that patients who survive coronavirus have immunity. To be helpful Paul...

    President Trump is looming as a wild card in the Senate’s fight over reauthorizing three lapsed surveillance programs. Trump, who has repeatedly lashed out that his 2016 campaign was “spied” upon, has not said if he will sign the House-passed bill, which would pair reauthorization of the three lapsed parts of the USA Freedom Act with some reforms to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court. The Senate is expected to vote on a handful of amendments to the House bill as soon as Wednesday, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and his allies hoping to prevent additional changes....

    Anthony Fauci bluntly told Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Tuesday that he has never put himself up as the definitive authority on the coronavirus pandemic. "I have never made myself out to be the end all and only voice in this. I'm a scientist, a physician and a public health official. I give advice according to the best scientific evidence," Fauci, the director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said during a Senate hearing about the coronavirus pandemic. Fauci pushed back on Paul's comments that scientists should "have a little bit of humility" because they do not...

    The Senate failed Thursday to override President Donald Trump’s veto of a bill that would curb his ability to take military action against Iran. The Senate came up short of the two-thirds majority, and it voted 49-44, with seven GOP senators joining Democrats. Seven Republicans broke with Trump: Sens. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine, Mike Lee of Utah, Rand Paul of Kentucky, Todd Young of Indiana, and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana. Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) joined Democrats in February to pass the bill, but he did not vote Thursday. Trump on Wednesday night,...

    U.S. Senator Rand Paul Thursday accused Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear of being “drunk with power” and said the state is living under the “dictatorship of Beshear” while making an argument to reopen the economy in an interview with a Louisville television station. “So we have a relatively weak governor under normal circumstances, but right now we’re living under the dictatorship of Beshear, and we’ve got to get out from under him,” Paul told Lawrence Smith of WDRB. “He’s killing the economy. We have to get started again, and if we’re doing it according to his rules, there are going to...
  • Beshear Vetoes 'Born Alive' Abortion Bill

    04/25/2020 10:57:56 AM PDT · by Republican Wildcat · 30 replies
    FRANKFORT - Kentucky's Democratic governor has vetoed abortion legislation pushed by Republican lawmakers. The bill would have given the state's Republican Attorney General Daniel Cameron authority to regulate abortion clinics and the power to suspend abortions as an elective procedure during the coronavirus outbreak. Another part of the vetoed measure would have required doctors to provide life-sustaining care for an infant born alive after a failed abortion attempt. The measure cleared the legislature in the waning hours of this year’s legislative session. As a result, lawmakers won’t have an opportunity to override Governor Andy Beshear’s veto. In a statement on...

    FRANKFORT, Ky. (KT) – Gov. Andy Beshear vetoed Senate Bill 9 on Friday, saying that Kentucky law already fully protects children from being denied life-saving medical care and treatment when they are born. ... House Speaker David Osborne said he was “outraged and saddened over the decision to veto a bill aimed at protecting human life” and Attorney General Daniel Cameron called it "reprehensible." “Make no mistake, the governor had a choice and he used it to defend the indefensible,” Osborne said. “The Born Alive Act simply requires physicians and other health caregivers to provide life-saving medical care to infants...
