McConnell's estimate comes as congressional Democrats and the administration are struggling to reach an agreement after days of talks about a potential fifth coronavirus package as cases climb across the country and...

    The man who tackled Republican U.S. Sen. Rand Paul in 2017 in anger over Paul piling yard waste near their shared property line will serve another 14 months behind bars or on home detention. A federal judge initially sentenced Rene Boucher to 30 days in jail for the attack, along with 100 hours of community service and a $10,000 fine. Prosecutors argued that sentence was unreasonably light given Paul’s injuries, which included six broken ribs. Prosecutors won the right to try to get a longer sentence for Boucher. U.S. District Judge Matthew F. Leitman imposed the additional punishment in a...

    Washington Examiner ^ | July 22 | Sen. Rand Paul
    The time came when the emperor decreed: “The people are in need; a plague is upon the land. I will give them money.” The people had been made to believe that paper was money. So, the emperor ordered that paper bearing the government insignia be printed and distributed to the people. Now, the people had been trained to accept paper as money, but they still hung onto the belief that even paper money required work to be considered valuable. But the emperor reassured them that paper is money backed by the full faith and credit of government (aka paper money...

They simply don’t care about debt and are preparing to add at least another trillion dollars in debt this month, combined with the trillions from earlier this summer.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — As the nation reimagines the criminal justice system following widespread protests over the deaths of Black Americans in police custody, Kentucky's junior senator Rand Paul (R) is reintroducing several policy proposals concerning civil liberties.
