    Donald Trump puts Australia on North Korean rocket alert SHARRI MARKSON, National Political Editor, The Daily Telegraph April 10, 2017 11:00pm AUSTRALIA and its allies have been put on standby for the possibility of the United States shooting down test rockets launched by North Korea. Intelligence sources told The Daily Telegraph that North Korea may launch ballistic missile test flights around the birthday of Kim II-sung, the founder of the rogue nation, on April 15 or even sooner. The United States, which has a fleet headed to the Korean Peninsula, is understood to have notified Australia that it is fully...

    Trump just instigated an unprovoked missile attack on a Sovereign Nation that posed no direct or immediate threat to our National Security or American Citizens. Explain to me why this act of war without any input from Congress is consistent with our Founding Documents and our Constitution?

    On Thursday evening, following the launch of more than 50 Tomahawk cruise missiles on a Syrian air base, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) said that the united States was not attacked, and called on President Donald Trump to follow the Constitution and come before Congress for a declaration of war. “While we all condemn the atrocities in Syria, the United States was not attacked," Paul said.  " The President needs congressional authorization for military action as required by the Constitution, and I call on him to come to Congress for a proper debate." “Our prior interventions in this region have done...

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) asserted Thursday night that President Trump needs congressional authorization for military action in Syria after Trump ordered an airstrike in the country following a deadly chemical attack earlier this week. "While we all condemn the atrocities in Syria, the United States was not attacked," Paul said in a statement shortly after reports that the U.S. had launched more than 50 Tomahawk cruise missiles against an airfield in Syria. "The President needs congressional authorization for military action as required by the Constitution, and I call on him to come to Congress for a proper debate," Paul said....

    After seeing the gruesome images of the chemical weapons attack in Syria, President Trump has threatened to take military action. “My attitude toward Syria and Assad has changed very much,” the president said on Wednesday. United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley has also said the U.S. might use force in Syria. On Thursday, Sen. Rand Paul said any military action taken against Syria by the U.S. would need congressional approval. Appearing on Fox News Radio’s “Kilmeade and Friends,” Paul said: The first thing we ought to do is probably obey the Constitution. When Nikki Haley came before my committee and I...

    Paul vs. MSNBC sheeple Is there anyone, anyone at all, who honestly thinks that Susan Rice demanded detailed spreadsheets of “perfectly legal” Trump communications - and then didn’t run her findings over to the offices of Barack Obama & Hillary Clinton?

    Sen. Rand Paul followed a bomb-blaster of a tweet about Susan Rice’s supposed “spying on [the] Trump campaign” with a call for her to come to Capitol Hill, take the oath and testify. “I don’t think we should discount how big a deal it was that Susan Rice was looking at these, and she needs to be asked, did President Obama ask her to do this? Was this a directive from President Obama? I think she ought to testify under oath on this,” Paul said to reporters, The Hill noted. “I think she should be asked under oath, did she...

    It looked like Republican infighting drove ObamaCare out of bounds two weeks ago, but it might have gotten rescued by a few chip shots on Sunday. Sen. Rand Paul, a vociferous critic of the American Health Care Act and ally of the intransigent House Freedom Caucus, played a round of golf with President Donald Trump and OMB director Mick Mulvaney two days ago — and suddenly declared himself “very optimistic” about a deal to pass the AHCA after all.Now, the Washington Examiner reports that the deal could be announced as early as today, even if it takes a week...

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told reporters Monday afternoon that former Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice “ought to testify under oath” after Bloomberg News’s Eli Lake revealed that, during the presidential transition, she deliberately sought to “unmask” President Donald Trump’s associates from intelligence surveillance. Paul called the reports that Rice made dozens of requests to learn more about the identities of anonymous people thought to be close to the Trump transition team, inadvertently caught on tape during investigations into foreign persons of intelligence interest, “enormous news.” “If it is allowed, we shouldn’t be allowing it. I don’t think we should...

On Thursday morning, Drudge tweeted, "Intriguing lunch in hill office of America's best senator, Rand Paul. He's bold, brave and has somehow kept his heart in such a corrupt city." Drudge has previously said Republicans should be "sued for fraud" for not prioritizing tax cuts and an ObamaCare repeal.

    President Donald Trump said in his inaugural address: “We’ve defended other nation’s borders, while refusing to defend our own.” I couldn’t agree more. Today, the question is: Will we add yet another commitment to defend yet another foreign country? For decades, NATO has been an organization where the U.S. disproportionately spends our blood and treasure. The other NATO countries have largely hitched a ride to the U.S. train that subsidizes their defenses and allows them to direct their revenues to domestic pursuits. Adding a country with fewer than 2,000 soldiers to NATO is not in our self-interest. There is no...
  • Did Rand Paul Have an Alternative to the Failed AHCA?

    IWB ^ | Gabrielle Seunagal
    From the birth of the American Health Care Act (AHCA), Kentucky Senator Rand Paul was vehemently against it. In an interview with MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Paul noted the problematic rising premiums that Obamacare engenders in the individual market. He elaborately explained the much needed demand to eradicate Obamacare’s insurance mandates and high prices. The AHCA would have earned popularity among conservatives if Rand Paul was involved with the crafting of the bill. Speaker Ryan remained woefully out of touch with the AHCA’s dismal unfavorability; his determination to persist with the proposal serves as evidence of such. Senator Paul was one...

    We have already seen the entire media portray recalcitrant conservatives in the Republican party as ideologues. But the real culprits are progressives in both parties whose construct is the primacy of government regulations over free-market principles. While it may be too late for great Senators like Rand Paul to realize a free-market insurance model, it is the only viable solution to a government created catastrophe of immeasurable proportions which has consumed one-fifth (1/5) of the economy.

    Senator Rand Paul, Mike Lee and Ted Cruz pushed the House Freedom Caucus to remain firm in opposition to President Trump. Having successfully defeated his opposition, Senator Paul pulls out the UniParty dance music and proposes solutions that can go no-where. As you watch this, remember the House and Senate schedule spring break is next week…. Ergo Paul says “legislation should be brought up next week” blah-blah-blah. This is a familiar UniParty ‘controlled opposition‘ trick. Go public and make the solution something you know has absolutely no chance of even being explored. Makes the abuser look great, and keeps the...

    Sen. Rand Paul praised House conservatives for blocking the Obamacare repeal bill Thursday, but said the White House could easily break the impasse if it would agree to send Vice President Mike Pence up to preside over the eventual Senate debate. Mr. Paul said that would give Republicans a chance to head off the parliamentarian and reinterpret the budget process rules that have tied GOP leaders’ hands in what kind of bill they’re able to bring to the floor while avoiding a Democratic filibuster. “That alone I think would break the logjam and get things going,” Mr. Paul, Kentucky Republican,...
