Insane Leftist Mob Goes After Rand Paul and Republicans in DC on the Final Night of the RNC

Hundreds of screaming Black Lives Matter and Antifa militants converged on Washington, DC on the final night of the Republican National Convention. They shut down the streets and swarmed Republicans leaving the White House after President Trump’s speech. BLM and Antifa squads went after Rand Paul and his wife with intent to harm or kill. Paul said the rioters likely were from out of town and had been paid. Most of them were wearing new cloths and were staying in hotels. He said the hotel bills should be subpoenaed to find out who bankrolled the operation so criminal charges can be made against them and those who hired them. -GEG

Rioters knocked down an elderly Trump supporter. The man was walking through the area with a woman wearing pro-Trump attire when the mob began to follow him and harass him. A black woman punched him in the jaw. Then he was knocked to the ground. As usual, no police are present. The rioters have the streets to themselves.

President Trump gave his speech on the South Lawn of the White House, protesters gathered on the north side of the White House on Black Lives Matter Plaza and put an effigy of Trump in a guillotine for a ritual mock execution. The video of the guillotine scene also includes a clip of Kamala Harris, shortly after becoming Biden’s running mate, professing that the BLM riots will not stop and should not stop.

The rioters surround the historic Episcopalian St. John’s Church and chant a threat to burn it down.

The liberal media and LGBT groups have remained silent about BLM aggressors who screeched an anti-gay slur against Brandon Straka, the gay man who created the ‘Walk Away’ campaign for Democrats who realize the party is radicalized and does not represent them. The night after Black Lives Matter assaulted Republicans exiting the RNC at the White House, the mob marched through the streets of the capital chanting, “who do we protect? Black criminals!”




Senator Rand Paul Released His 2019 ‘Festivus’ Waste Report that Shows How the US Government Burned through $50-Billion on Scandalous Programs


Republican Senator Rand Paul has an annual tradition of revealing how much money the US government wastes in what he calls ‘Festivus airing of grievances.’ Senator Paul unleashed a tweetstorm linking to his waste report that accuses the US government of squandering over $50-billion dollars in 2019 on outrageous programs. Some of the spending included: $466,991 on studying frog mating calls in Panama, $1.2-million on the studying habits of online dating app users, tens of millions spent ‘green growth’ for Peru, $22-million spent on bringing Serbian cheese up to international standards, and more. Paul wrote, “These are only a few examples, but you get the idea. But we couldn’t possibly cut spending right? No waste here, no sir!”

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has an annual tradition of revealing how much money the US government wastes in what he calls ‘Festivus airing of grievances.’

Senator Paul unleashed a tweetstorm on Monday linking to his waste report that alleges the US government wasted over $50 billion dollars in 2019 on outrageous programs.

Below is just a handful of programs the government wastes millions of dollars on while our veterans battle homelessness and shoddy healthcare.

“That reminds me of some of my favorite waste report grievances – your government is terrible and you should really have a lot of problems how you spend it,” Rand Paul said revealing the US govt spent $466,991 on studying frog mating calls in Panama.

US govt spent more than $33 million on textbooks for students in Afghanistan while US teachers use their own money for supplies here.

Also, $1,200,000 on studying habits of online dating app users.

Senator Rand Paul Had Part of His Lung Removed Due to Complications from the 2017 Attack by His Neighbor


Senator Rand Paul announced that he underwent surgery to have a portion of his lung removed, a lingering result of a 2017 violent assault by his next door neighbor, Rene Boucher, who tackled him from behind. Paul suffered six broken ribs in the attack and contracted pneumonia. Earlier this year, he had another surgical procedure to treat a hernia related to the attack. Boucher previously pleaded guilty to assaulting a member of Congress, a federal offense, and was ordered to pay a $10,000 fine and sentenced to 30 days in jail. In a separate lawsuit, a jury ordered Boucher to pay $580,000 in damages and medical expenses. -GEG

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) revealed on Monday that he recently underwent surgery to remove a portion of his lung that was injured after his neighbor assaulted him at his home two years ago.

“Unfortunately, I will have to limit my August activities. Part of my
lung damaged by the 2017 assault had to be removed by surgery this
weekend,” Paul said. “The doctors, nurses, [and] staff at Vanderbilt
University Medical Center were great. I should be able to return to the
Senate in September.”

Unfortunately,
I will have to limit my August activities. Part of my lung damaged by
the 2017 assault had to be removed by surgery this weekend. The doctors,
nurses, & staff at Vanderbilt University Medical Center were great.
I should be able to return to the Senate in September — Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) August 5, 2019

The
Kentucky senator told police that his neighbor “came onto his property
and tackled him from behind, forcing him to the ground and causing
pain.” The attack left him with six broken ribs, pleural effusion, and, consequently, pneumonia.

Rene
Boucher, 59, was arrested in November 2017 after he attacked Paul
outside his Bowling Green, Kentucky home. He was reportedly upset after
Paul blew some leaves onto his property with his lawnmower. The judge
presiding over the case referred to the attack as a “dispute between
neighbors” and denied that it was politically motivated.

Boucher
ultimately pleaded guilty to assaulting a member of Congress resulting
in personal injury. He was subsequently sentenced to 30 days in prison, a
year of supervised release, and required to serve 100 hours of
community service for the attack. Paul was further rewarded more than $580,000 in damages and medical expenses.

The news comes only a week after Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) faced widespread backlash for circulating a tweet that appeared to celebrate the violent attack.

Omar retweeted actor and outspoken leftist Tom Arnold on July 29
after he wrote on Twitter: “Imagine being Rand Paul’s next door neighbor
and having to deal with [Rand Paul] lying cowardly circular whiney
bullcrap about lawn clippings. No wonder he ripped his toupee off.”

Wow, it appears @IlhanMN is celebrating/calling for violence against @RandPaul.

I hope every Democrat and Republican in Congress, as well as members of the media have the courage to call this out.

Calls for political violence should never be tolerated, regardless of Party. pic.twitter.com/AQcz5gqLI6 — Andrew Surabian (@Surabees) July 29, 2019

Leading up to Omar seemingly promoting the attack, Paul had expressed his discontent
with the freshman congresswoman’s frequent criticism of the country
that has provided her so much since she arrived as a refugee fleeing
from Somalia.

“I’ve met people who have come here from behind the
Iron Curtain. They got away from communism, they’re some of the best
Americans we have because they really appreciate how great our country
is,” Paul said at the time. “Then I hear Representative Omar say America
is a terrible place – well, she came here and we fed her, we clothed
her, she got welfare, she got [schooling], she got healthcare, and then
lo and behold, she has the honor of actually winning a seat in
Congress.”

Jury Orders Senator Rand Paul’s Neighbor Who Attacked Him to Pay $580,000 in Damages


US: While mowing his lawn in November 2017, Senator Rand Paul was violently attacked by his leftist neighbor, Rene Boucher. Paul was tackled from behind and suffered six broken ribs, including three displaced fractures and recurrent pneumonia. Boucher was sentenced to 30 days in jail for the assault. A Kentucky jury awarded Paul $580,000 for damages and medical expenses. -GEG

It appears Senator Rand Paul’s leftist neighbor is going to have to pay up big time for his assault.

From Fox News:

Sen. Rand Paul was awarded over $580,000 in damages by a
Kentucky jury on Wednesday after he was attacked by his neighbor in the
fall of 2017.

Paul, R-Ky., was awarded $375,000 in punitive damages and $200,000 for pain and suffering, plus $7,834 for medical expenses.

The lawmaker was violently attacked by his neighbor, Rene Boucher, in
November 2017 while he was mowing his lawn. Paul was tackled from behind
and suffered six broken ribs, including three displaced fractures. His
recovery was complicated by fluid and blood around the lungs and
recurrent pneumonia.

[…][Boucher] was sentenced in June to 30 days in federal prison for
the assault. He was also ordered to one year of supervised release, a
$10,000 fine, 100 hours of community service, and ordered to have no
contact with Paul’s family.

[…]Boucher’s lawyer said they will appeal.

Hopefully, that number will be doubled on appeal.

Paul was asking for $1.5 million, which is perfectly reasonable considering he was almost killed.

It’s truly insane Boucher only got a slap on the wrist by the criminal courts for his assault.

Thank God Paul survived as he’s one of the only voices of reason in the
Senate. He also survived the congressional baseball shooting by a crazed
Bernie Sanders supporter back in 2017.

Syria: 16 People Killed, Including Four Americans, in Suicide Bomb Attack as Trump Prepares to Remove Troops


Manbij, Syria: Two US soldiers and two American contractors were killed in a suicide bomb attack on Wednesday. ISIS claimed responsibility. The attack occurred just as President Trump announced plans to pull US troops out of Syria. Since the predictable reaction to this attack was pressure to cancel the announced troop withdrawal, the motive behind the attack and its timing is not in doubt.

On cue, Fox newscaster, Brian Kilmeade, a pro-war neocon, argues for US troops to remain in Syria to ‘stop the next 9/11 attack’. Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul points out that 99% of ISIS has been eradicated and that Syria should be able to finish the job. He says the US has been in Afghanistan for 17 years, and Islam needs to police Islam. -GEG


Senator
Rand Paul appeared Thursday morning on Fox and Friends to discuss his
meeting with President Trump on pulling out of Syria and Afghanistan.

Brian Kilmeade, who criticized Paul yesterday
on Twitter for supporting pulling out of Syria, similarly sparred with
him today, saying the reason to stay in Syria is to “stop the next 9/11
attack.”

“When we had the 9/10 policy of Bill Clinton of not letting al Qaeda
metastasize in Afghanistan, they end up taking, killing thousands of
people here in New York City,” Kilmeade said.

“When we had the Barack Obama policy of pulling out of Iraq prematurely we get ISIS it almost lose the entire region.”

Rand responded: “We’ve been in Afghanistan for 17 years. So people like
yourself saying, oh it’s precipitous we’re going to leave Afghanistan…
We’ve been there 17 years! You will say the same thing in 17 more
years, say oh it’s too soon to leave in a thousand years you could say
that. These people are going to be killing each other in a thousand
years.”

Historic Victory!  Senate Votes to Stop US Support in Saudi Arabia’s War in Yemen

The resolution that expressed congressional disapproval against the US-backing of Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen passed 56-41, over the objections of many establishment Republicans, but with strong support from conservatives like Senators Rand Paul and Senator Mike Lee, as well as from leftists like Senator Bernie Sanders.  Rand Paul said that since he has entered public office, he has spoken out against Congress’ abdication of its constitutional responsibilities in foreign policy.  This is the first time Congress has invoked the War Powers Act to vote to end support for war since Vietnam.  Bloomberg reported that a bipartisan group of senators say they’ll try again in 2019 to enact stronger legislation to cut off arms sales to Saudi Arabia.

In a historic action, Senate has voted to end US involvement and support for the war in Yemen — the first time they have voted us out of war since Vietnam.

On Thursday, Senate voted 56-41 to pass S.J. Res. 54 and end support for Saudi Arabia’s war on Yemen.

In a statement, Senator Rand Paul — a long time critic of US support for the war in Yemen — praised Senate’s action.

“Today, in an historic vote, the Senate sent a clear message to Saudi Arabia that we will not turn a blind eye to their abuse of human rights, killing of dissidents and innocent Yemenis, and fueling of a humanitarian crisis. Since entering the Senate, I have spoken out against Congress’ abdication of its constitutional responsibilities in foreign policy, and I have worked across the aisle to help build the bipartisan consensus that made its voice loudly heard today. I will continue working to ensure that today’s victory is just the beginning of a long-awaited change in how Congress operates,” Senator Paul said in a statement.

A press release from Senator Paul’s office noted that over the past five years, Dr. Paul has spoken out and led multiple bipartisan efforts against U.S. involvement in Yemen. “Most recently, in November, he forced a procedural vote on his resolution that would have blocked the sale of an estimated $300 million in high-explosive rocket artillery and associated training and support to Bahrain, a member of the Saudi-led coalition waging the war in Yemen.”

Senator Rand Paul Rebuked the Deep State for Secrecy and Called for Congress to Take Back Power to Declare War

Senator Rand Paul organized a press conference outside the CIA’s briefing on the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi that the lawmaker was blocked from attending, even though he is a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Paul said that only eight Congressmen are given intelligence information, which creates an oligarchy-like system instead of a democratic system. Paul called out the deep state and argued that, if lawmakers aren’t allowed to have access to the intelligence community’s conclusions, they can’t provide oversight. Paul said that the Senate needs to take back foreign policy as the president lacks the authority to declare war (in Yemen) without permission from the Senate. He said that 63 Senators support a vote for a resolution requiring President Trump to stop support for Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen.




Rand Paul Blocks $38-Billion in Aid to Israel. Says US Cannot Subsidize the Country Forever

Top pro-Israel lobbying groups in America are mobilizing against Senator Rand Paul (R- KY) for blocking the continuation of US aid to Israel amounting to $38-billion in taxpayer funds over 10 years.  AIPAC, the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee, bought ads on Facebook complaining of Paul’s hold on the funds while CUFI, Christians United for Israel, a Christian-Zionist organization, launched an email campaign to pressure the senator to back away from is position.  Paul says he wants time limits on assistance to Israel and cuts in aid to countries that are hostile to the US. -GEG

Sen. Rand Paul acknowledged that he had placed a hold on major funding legislation for Israel, saying he wanted time limits on assistance to the Jewish state.

The Kentucky Republican also said he wanted cuts in aid to countries he says are hostile to the United States.

“While I’m not for foreign aid in general, if we are going to send aid to Israel it should be limited in time and scope so we aren’t doing it forever, and it should be paid for by cutting the aid to people who hate Israel and America,” Paul’s office said in an statement.

Paul said he planned to introduce an amendment to the legislation, the United States-Israel Security Assistance Authorization Act of 2018, in coming days. The bill codifies into law the $38 billion defense aid package for Israel over 10 years that was negotiated in the final days of the Obama administration.

The Washington Free Beacon first reported Paul’s hold, a parliamentary procedure that allows senators to prevent a motion from reaching a floor vote, and which usually is anonymous. The hold has been countered vigorously by major pro-Israel groups, including the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and Christians United for Israel, through online ads and action alerts to membership. CUFI has specifically targeted Paul through actions in Kentucky, including ads in newspapers there.

In his statement, Paul blamed AIPAC and other unnamed pro-Israel groups for not meeting his demands.

“Each time I’ve tried to stop giving aid to enemies of the U.S. and Israel, I have been thwarted. Often by groups that claim they are pro-Israel,” he said. “Why would supposedly pro-Israel groups oppose my legislation to end aid to the Palestinian Liberation Organization? Maybe it’s because they fear any debate on anyone’s foreign aid threatens a broader debate on whether we should be borrowing from foreign countries simply to send the money to other foreign countries.”

AIPAC has in the past opposed radical cuts to the Palestinians, heeding in part Israeli security officials who say the assistance helps stabilize the region. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has recently endorsed President Donald Trump’s wide-reaching cuts in assistance to the Palestinians. It is not clear yet whether AIPAC is on board with the cuts as well.

AIPAC also vigorously advocates for foreign assistance in general, which Paul opposes. The lobby believes broader foreign assistance is critical because it advances U.S. influence generally and builds support for Israel overseas, and because making Israel a special case while other countries are neglected does Israel no favors.

Asked about Paul’s claims, AIPAC’s spokesman, Marshall Wittman, would only say, “We believe it is critical for Congress to adopt this legislation before adjourning given the growing threats to Israel’s security from Iran, Hezbollah and Hamas.”

CUFI noted in its statement that it has supported cuts to assistance to the Palestinians, and said the argument over those cuts were not germane to aid to Israel bill.

“Sen. Paul’s decision to hold this bill does not make America safer and does not ensure taxpayer dollars are used most efficiently – quite the opposite,” said CUFI Action Fund Chairwoman Sandra Parker. “Aid to Israel provides the U.S. with an extraordinary return on investment.”

The Senate passed the act in early August and the House of Representatives followed suit the following month. Now the Senate must pass a final version in line with the bill passed by the House.

The $38 billion deal negotiated in 2016 is the most generous ever to Israel. The act also expands a stockpile of weapons that the United States keeps in Israel, which may access the stockpile in wartime. It also enhances Israel’s qualitative military edge and urges space research cooperation between Israel and the United States.

Paul, a presidential candidate in 2016, alienated pro-Israel Republicans almost as soon as he became a senator in 2011, when he embraced his congressman father’s longtime call to cut defense assistance to Israel. The younger Paul later backtracked, saying he regarded Israel as a close ally, and would cut assistance only once it was clear the country was self-sufficient in its defense needs.

Rand Paul’s Wife Issues Public Letter to Senator Cory Booker After Paul Was Doxxed

Kelley Paul, the wife of Senator Rand Paul, wrote an open letter to Senator Cory Booker in response to being doxxed, which means their home address and Rand’s cell phone number were published on the internet after Booker encouraged activists to get up in the face of lawmakers with whom they disagree. She publicly asked Booker to publicly retract his position. In the past 18 months, Rand Paul has been the target of a gunman on a baseball field, was savagely attacked by a neighbor, and has been subjected to screaming protests at the airport. His family has received numerous threats of extreme violence. -GEG

It’s nine o’clock at night, and as I watch out the window, a sheriff’s car slowly drives past my home. I am grateful that they have offered to do extra patrols, as someone just posted our home address, and Rand’s cell number, on the internet — all part of a broader effort to intimidate and threaten Republican members of Congress and their families. I now keep a loaded gun by my bed. Our security systems have had to be expanded. I have never felt this way in my life.
.
In the last 18 months, our family has experienced violence and threats of violence at a horrifying level. I will never forget the morning of the shooting at the congressional baseball practice, the pure relief and gratitude that flooded me when I realized that Rand was okay.
.
He was not okay last November, when a violent and unstable man attacked him from behind while he was working in our yard, breaking six ribs and leaving him with lung damage and multiple bouts of pneumonia. Kentucky’s secretary of state, Alison Lundergan Grimes, recently joked about it in a speech. MSNBC commentator Kasie Hunt laughingly said on air that Rand’s assault was one of her “favorite stories.” Cher, Bette Midler, and others have lauded his attacker on Twitter. I hope that these women never have to watch someone they love struggle to move or even breathe for months on end.
.
Earlier this week, Rand was besieged in the airport by activists “getting up in his face,” as you, Senator Booker, encouraged them to do a few months ago. Preventing someone from moving forward, thrusting your middle finger in their face, screaming vitriol — is this the way to express concern or enact change? Or does it only incite unstable people to violence, making them feel that assaulting a person is somehow politically justifiable?
.
Senator Booker, Rand has worked with you to co-sponsor criminal justice reform bills. He respects you, and so do I. I would call on you to retract your statement. I would call on you to condemn violence, the leaking of elected officials’ personal addresses (our address was leaked from a Senate directory given only to senators), and the intimidation and threats that are being hurled at them and their families.
.
Sincerely,
.
Kelley Paul

 




Rand Paul Is Blocked from Ending Indefinite Detention of Americans

Republican Senator, Rand Paul, is trying to end the US government’s power to indefinitely detain Americans, because it violates the constitutional right to a speedy and public trial He is seeking support for a new Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) Act, because he sees the existing version as a blank check for costly and unfettered war. In the meantime, he has introduced an amendment to the existing bill to partially achieve his objective. The inclusion of the amendment in the GOP package to be attached to the new military spending bill requires consent from all senators but is short by one vote, believed to belong to Senator Lindsey Graham. Graham, a retired colonel, in the past has supported indefinite detainment and has opposed limiting the president’s ability to conduct war without the consent of Congress. -GEG

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) wants to end the U.S. government’s ability to detain people indefinitely, arguing that it violates Americans’ Sixth Amendment rights to a speedy and public trial.

He has proposed an amendment to the yearly, must-pass defense legislation authorizing Pentagon spending that would repeal a 2012 provision giving the president the ability to indefinitely detain anyone based on the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF).

Paul, a Libertarian, has long-pushed for Congress to approve a new AUMF, arguing that it is a blank check for costly and unfettered war.

However, sources suspect that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is secretly blocking the amendment from being included in a package of GOP amendments that would be voted on and attached to the defense bill, since its inclusion requires consent from all senators.

“It is inconceivable that in 2018, a senator would block language to prevent indefinite detention of Americans. What happened to the rule of law? Lindsey Graham should own up to this and explain to innocent Americans why he’s fine with detaining them indefinitely,” said a senior Senate aide.

Breitbart News reached out to Graham’s office to confirm whether it was true, but did not receive a response on that specific question.

Graham, a retired colonel, has in the past supported the ability to indefinitely detain those captured under the current AUMF and has opposed limits on the president’s ability to conduct war.

But Paul argues the law currently would also allow American citizens apprehended within the boundaries of the U.S. could be held indefinitely without trial.

“Giving the accused their day in court isn’t a suggestion,” Paul said in a statement to the Washington Examiner last year. “It’s enshrined in our Constitution as a cornerstone of our judicial system. My bill reminds our government that the Founders did not put an expiration date on the Sixth Amendment.”

Rand Paul Forced a Senate Vote on the Budget to Expose RINOs

Rand Paul’s ‘Penny Plan Budget’ bill would have cut $30 billion in spending by cutting one penny from every dollar over five years, delivering a balanced budget. He suggested that much of the cuts could have come from defense, education, and corporate welfare. He forced a vote on his fellow senators to show who the real conservatives are, and the Senate overwhelmingly rejected by 76 to 21. Click below for the list of 76 Senators, including RINOs (Republicans in name only), who have now been put on record voting for uncontrolled spending.

UPDATE: The motion to proceed on the Penny Plan Budget failed. Sen. Paul shared the roll call vote on his Twitter page.

ORIGINAL POST

On Thursday the Senate will vote to balance the budget – or not. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) predicted on Neil Cavuto’s Fox News show Wednesday that half of his Republican colleagues will show their true cowardly colors and vote against his Penny Plan Budget, which would cut about $30 billion in spending.

“When we have this vote tomorrow, half the Republicans in the Senate will show their true stripes, and they won’t vote to balance the budget, even though they say they`re for it,” Paul said. “When they’re home at the local rotary, they say they’re for it. So, really, you can`t give people courage. You can’t give people intestinal fortitude.”

“If Republicans come begging for your vote, they come begging for your contribution, and they say they’re going to balance the budget, and they don’t, there needs to be repercussions,” Paul added. “People need to be aware of who up here actually is a conservative and who up here actually is just playing a game.”

Rand Paul Questions Syria Gas Attack and New Evidence It Was a False Flag Hoax

A boy who was featured in the viral video that showed children being showered with water because of a chemical attack expressed confusion over why he was grabbed and had water poured over him.  An Arabic-speaking British investigative journalist interviewed locals in Douma who reported that there was no chemical attack.  Rand Paul questioned the attack and told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that if Assad did it, he has to be the stupidest dictator on the planet.

A Syrian boy, Hassan Diab, who can be seen in the viral video being “treated” in the hospital by being sprayed with water, said that he was told to go to the hospital, grabbed and water was poured on him.  His father said that he didn’t know anything about the chemical attack, but was told his family was in the hospital.  A doctor at the hospital said that the people there did not have symptoms from a chemical attack.  If there had been a chemical attack, hospital staff would have become sick, too.

Renowned British foreign correspondent Robert Fisk, who speaks Arabic, went to Douma, Syria and spoke with Dr. Assim Rahaibani, a 58-year old senior staff doctor at the hospital where the children were treated, who said that they were having trouble breathing caused by dust that has been shaken loose inside the tunnels where they live, due to shelling and bombing. The doctor said that there was no chemical attack, although someone did run into the room and yell that there had been a gas attack, which caused the patients to panic. Local witnesses told Fisk that there was no gas attack.

Senator Rand Paul, who is a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and Homeland Security Committee, said that he has yet to see any evidence that Syrian President Assad launched a chemical attack against his own people. He said that the intelligence agencies that claim Assad did commit the attack have failed to present proof, and that it doesn’t make any sense for Assad to attack his own citizens, as he is winning the war.

While reporting from a refugee camp near the Syrian border of Turkey, the senior international correspondent for CNN, Arwa Damon, put her face in a backpack from 7-year-old children who survived the alleged chemical attack. She reported that “there’s definitely something that stings.” If she really believed that there was a chemical attack, why would she put her face inside the knapsack and inhale?
