Rand Paul Meets Seperately With Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch

Now all you need to do is click the “Rand Paul” tag at the bottom of this post and look back to when I first called this man out several years ago, to realize that I was 100% spot on.  NOBODY else was writing about this.  Sure there may have been people who poo poo’d Rand off hand but I was the one who dredged up his old campaign videos and uploaded them to youtube and showed his hypocrisy.  Since that time he has shown time and time again where he stands, and as I’ve written before he has crossed lines you do not come back from.

The latest shenanigans is as the headline says, apparently he met with the chief orchestrators of “conservative” news, who in reality are the biggest promoters of death and misinformation around.  Here’s the brief story

Israeli Senator Rand Paul Endorses Amnesty For ILLEGAL Aliens

SOURCE

WASHINGTON — Republican U.S. Israeli Sen. Rand Paul is endorsing a path to citizenship for the nation’s illegal immigrants, a significant move for a favorite of tea party Republicans who are often seen as hostile to such an approach.

Paul’s path to citizenship comes with conditions that could make it lengthy and difficult for illegal immigrants to travel, according to a speech he was to deliver Tuesday morning to the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Among the conditions, Congress would have to agree first that progress has been made on border security.

Nonetheless, Paul’s endorsement of allowing illegal immigrants an eventual way to become citizens puts him in line with a growing number of Republicans who are embracing action on immigration as a way to broaden the GOP’s appeal to Latinos.

Krauthammer Mocks Rand Paul

I posted nothing about Rand Pauls great political theater about drones, because I saw it as just that, no need to perpetuate it. However it is interesting that the biggest zionists in Washington McCain, Graham and now Krauthammer (among others) all came out on the side opposite of Paul. Clearly DC provides nothing but an illusion of real debate and Rand Paul doesn’t give a rats ass about drones flying domestically or elsewhere it is notable to see conservatives become uncomfortable when their favorite fox news gimp jumps on the wrong side.

Luckily for these neo cons, the citizens of America have a tremendously short memory and will once again be willing to vote for and support them when need be. After all they may not be great but they’re the lesser of two evils.

Neocons Reel In The Ron Paulians

By, Chris Rossini

What can be better for The Republican Party (in general) and Neocons (specifically) than to get those Ron Paul supporters….without Ron Paul?

Now that would be something.

Neocons hate being out of power. Their writings are filled with gibberish on how Obama is gutting the military, how he’s weak in The Middle East, not nice enough to Israel, and just not doing this Empire thing right.

Neocons can’t fathom not being in control come 2016.

Hillary is coming (a 3rd Super PAC has just been formed) and you’re gonna need every edge you can get to beat her. She’s going to have the massive media apparatus at her back. If you think Hope & Change was intoxicating, wait till the Hillary propaganda kicks in.

The elephant in the room for the Republicans/Neocons is the large number of Ron Paul supporters. If I were a neocon, my first thought would be: “How can we get these votes, with as little damage to our agenda as possible?”

The doors swung open immediately after Obama was re-elected.

Despite the relentless blackouts and censorship of Ron Paul just weeks before, the RNC Chairman was now standing with open arms:

“We would be fools not to welcome in the liberty movement in this party.”

Of course it’s ok to welcome Ron Paul supporters now…Ron Paul is no longer a political threat. Having him in power would’ve been a huge problem. But his supporters are not him. They are just numbers…and numbers you’ll need to win the election game in 2016.

After control is achieved, you can throw those gullible Ron Paul supporters overboard and get back to running the world the right way.

Who could possibly be better than Rand Paul to deliver the votes needed for the Neocons. What a fortunate situation. Rand, over time, has consistently proved to the Neocons that he’s not his Dad and can be trusted. When it comes to foreign policy, he’s as flexible as silly putty.

That’s like music to Neocon ears.

Then comes the “spontaneous” filibuster.

National Stage…everyone watching for hours on end. 

In action (i.e., the only thing that counts) the filibuster accomplished absolutely nothing. But the Neocons we’re all cheers (Rubin, Krauthammer, Limbaugh, Beck). Buzzfeed even put together a list of just about every other bad guy that got on board.

Sadly, a large number of Ron Paul supporters took the bait…It proved too hard to resist. You’d have to be for Obama droning you to resist, right?

Yet nothing was done. Brennan was sworn in swiftly the very next day, and The White House gave itself enough leeway to drive a Homeland Security tank through with its “letter”. 

In other words, the ship is still on course. It just now has a bunch of Ron Paul passengers on board! Talk about a unified Republican Party is everywhere.

But I’m going to repeat Jennifer Rubin:

He wasn’t attacking the war on terror. He wasn’t attacking drone use overseas. He surely wasn’t attacking indefinite detention at Guantanamo for enemy combatants.

Max Boot echoed:

“…he was clever enough not to make his filibuster about drone strikes per se.”

Yes Max…very clever of Rand (who had the stage, and all eyes and ears on him) to not denounce this:

Droves of Ron Paul supporters hopped onto the the wrong ship. They felt comfortable because a man with the last name “Paul” was greeting them as they climbed aboard.

The filibuster was a BIG score and the answer to my Neocon question was answered: “How can we get these votes, with as little damage to our agenda as possible?”

In this battle, the Neocons won.

 

Rand Paul Votes in Favor of $631 Billion U.S. Defense Legislation

Rand Paul’s To Do List before officially running for president:

Visit is Israel (scheduled for January)

The bill supports the Pentagon’s plans for the Air Force to spend $3.7 billion on the F-35 fighter program and the Navy to spend $3.2 billion, on what is the biggest weapon program in history.

The Military Corp Times reports:

The legislation also largely endorses the Army’s vehicle and helicopter programs. plans. It authorizes the Army to enter into a five-year procurement contract for CH-47 Chinook helicopters made by Boeing.

The upper chamber’s bill also endorses the Army’s plans to spend $639.9 million in 2013 to develop its envisioned Ground Combat Vehicle. (GCV). The legislation also fully supports the ground service’s $373.9 million Paladin Integrated Management effort and its $318 million plan to buy 58 Stryker vehicles.

The Army request for ed $1.3 billion to buy UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters also was approved. Sure, said the Senate.

Ron Paul Movement Not Ready To Pass Torch To Rand (No Kidding)

TAMPA, Fla.—Rand Paul risks alienating his father’s base as he tries to expand his own.

The Kentucky senator, who speaks at the Republican convention Wednesday night, has a younger face and a softer edge, but his name does not guarantee the loyalty of Ron Paul’s most passionate supporters.

With buzz around a potential run for president in 2016, Ron Paul’s son plans to make the case to delegates that it is better for the movement to work with the GOP establishment rather than from the rebellious fringe. But convincing a libertarian movement that puts a premium on purity to play in the big tent of a major party is a big ask.

Among some supporters of the elder Paul, there are doubts about whether Rand Paul is up to the task of carrying his father’s torch.

Many Ron Paul supporters are still upset that Rand endorsed Romney in June during a Fox News appearance while his father was still technically a candidate. In fact, Ron Paul is being denied a speaking slot this week because he refuses to endorse or release his delegates to Romney. During the primaries, Rand always said he planned to support whoever won the Republican nomination whenever asked if his father would consider a third-party candidacy.

That doesn’t go over well with some of Ron Paul’s most fervent supporters.

“I was kind of on thin ice with Rand, and then he went and endorsed Romney. And I said, ‘Dude, that’s it! We’re done now,’” said Nick Tanzillo, 27, who flew here from Boston for a Paul rally on Sunday. “He didn’t need to do it when he did. It really cracked the liberty movement. You’ve got the hardcore Ron supporters saying, ‘What are you doing to us?’”

“It looks like he’s pandering to the party,” added 30-year-old Marshall Soell from San Antonio.”

Ron Paul, 77, is retiring after 24 years in the House. Rand Paul, 49, did something his father never had in 2010 when he won statewide office after upsetting a GOP establishment favorite in the Republican primary. He’s begun raising his national profile, delivered the official Republican Saturday radio address this weekend, has become increasingly close with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and now plans to deliver a primetime address at the national convention. Ron Paul is leaving Tampa Tuesday night, so he will not be at the convention site to watch his son speak.

In separate interviews with POLITICO, both father and son played down their divergent tactics at the convention here.

Asked whether his son can carry his torch, the elder Paul said: “Time will tell. Nobody has a torch that they give to somebody else. I don’t have a torch. Everybody has to own their own way. He’ll do well.”

Rand Paul pushed back at suggestions that he may be alienating some of his father’s supporters. And he argued that the GOP platform is a “very libertarian, conservative document.”

“One out of 1,000 will be unhappy,” Rand Paul said of his father’s supporters. “But the vast majority come up to me and are complimentary and are very supportive.”
