Cruz in Charge of the Conservative MovementTownhall.com ^ | July 18, 2014 | Erick EricksonPosted on 7/18/2014, 10:55:05 AM by KaslinIn what appears to be the ultimate modern demonstration of “drinking the Kool-Aid,” Republicans across the spectrum seem http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v73/gunnyg/th_big-1.jpg

to have entered a pact in sticking together to defend, and even celebrate, campaign tactics predicated on gross voter fraud and manipulation of minority voters.

July 17, 2014 1 comment

By Chuck BaldwinJuly 10, 2014NewsWithViews.comJust as they did with his father, Ron Paul, globalist elitists within the GOP are pouncing on Kentucky Senator Dr. Rand Paul. Obviously, the only reason for Republican leaders to be ganging up on Rand like this is because

they are scared silly that he might just win the Republican nomination for President in 2016. And if there is anything that frightens the GOP establishment, it is an independent-minded, non-interventionist, reader of the Constitution–you know, someone like George Washington or Thomas Jefferson–or Rand Paul.Here is how Politico covered the story:

It was a dark cloud on the horizon on Friday, when Governor Perry of Texas published an op-ed in The Washington Post that attacked Senator Paul as a foreign policy isolationist.

Paul is reluctant to devote more US troops and weapons to Iraq, and Perry used that position to portray the Kentucky lawmaker as the reverse of Ronald Reagan, as someone who wants to hunker down at home rather than lead the world.“Paul is drawing his own red line along the water’s edge, creating a giant moat where superpowers can retire from the world,” Perry wrote, mockingly.

I wrote here about Rand Paul’s unconstitutional plan to propose federal legislation that would enfranchise some felons. Now, Sen. Paul has addressedthe constitutional issue posed by such legislation.He argues, in essence, that states decide who votes in state elections, but the federal government has the final say on who can vote in federal elections. Roger Clegg makes short work of Paul’s contention:

Rand Paul has suddenly become aware of facts that do not exist. “Immigrants are drawn to the magnet of free market capitalism here in the United States,” he wrote in an op-ed last week.However, over half of Hispanics are literally telling us that they reject “capitalism,” and the two largest immigrant groups Hispanics and Asians are voting overwhelmingly for the more anti-capitalist of the two major parties…..

“Abroad, we see our foreign policy collapsing and every region in the world is getting more and more dangerous,” Cruz said at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s conference in Washington.“[ISIS'] stated objective is to create an Islamic caliphate that runs from Syria to Iraq and then to work to exterminate Jordan, Israel and, ultimately, America,” he said.Cruz declined to offer any particulars for a policy in Iraq against ISIS, maintaining the cautious route he and fellow tea party Republican Sen.

Liberal media and politicos are hitting the fainting couches today over Sen. Rand Paul’s criticism of Bill and Hillary Clinton over the former president’s predatory sexual behavior while in office.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) called former President Clinton a sexual predator on Meet the Press.

These same reporters and politicos covered-up Bill Clinton’s ongoing affair in 2008 as Hillary competed with Barack Obama for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.

Happy New Year. Just when you thought the NSA spying scandal couldn’t get any worse, it has.

Last week, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., wrote to Gen. Keith Alexander, director of the National Security Administration (NSA), and asked plainly whether the NSA has been or is now spying on members of Congress or other public officials.

The senator’s letter was no doubt prompted by the revelations of Edward Snowden to the effect that the federal government’s lust for personal private data about all Americans and many foreigners knows no bounds, and its respect for the constitutionally protected and statutorily enforced right to privacy is nonexistent.

That, at least, seems to be the consensus in Washington. We’re inclined to a somewhat different view.

Earlier this week, in an effort led by Sen. Ted Cruz, some of my Republican colleagues and I took to the Senate floor with the intent of making Washington listen. The American people have made it abundantly clear that they do not want Obamacare. In fact, a majority of elected officials, the same officials that voted to implement this health care mandate, do not want it, either.

Arguing federal workers should not get special treatment, Rand Paul says he does not want taxpayers subsidizing the personal health care plans of any federal employee — including Chief Justice John Roberts — anymore.

With some in Congress arguing lawmakers and their staff should not get subsidies to cover their health insurance as President Obama’s health care law goes into effect, the Republican senator from Kentucky told The Daily Caller on Sunday that he’s going to start pushing a constitutional amendment that goes even further.

Paul’s proposal — outlawing any special exemptions for government employees — would mean all federal workers would have……….

Poll: Republican voters have embraced libertarian valuesUnited Liberty ^ | 9/12/13 | Jason PyePosted on Thursday, September 19, 2013 12:45:28 PM by shego

The libertarian philosophy is taking the Republican Party by storm, according to a poll conducted by FreedomWorks, a DC-based grassroots service center with over 6 million members.

With Sen. Rand Paul R-KY, Rep. Justin Amash R-MI and many other liberty-minded politicians gaining influence, libertarianism has generated new interest inside the Republican Party, much to the chagrin of the GOP’s political establishment….”FreedomWorks’ poll shows that 42 percent of Republicans have a favorable view of the word ‘libertarian,’ and only 10 percent don’t know the word, compared to 27 percent who don’t know nationally,” they added.

Mark, if you haven’t studied the issue, why are you shooting your mouth off about something that you don’t know. The Constitution is plain in that a candidate for POTUS must be born on US soil, and be a “natural born” citizen, born of two citizen parents at the time of the birth. Curz qualifies on neither account. He knows it. If you do your research you will also. You shame yourself.

By Alan Keyes: ‘Non-birther’ Rand Paul denigrates Constitution… “Like almost everyone else who collaborates with the current two-party sham, Sen. Paul has chosen to abrogate the Constitution’s natural-born citizen………………..”

Sen. Rand Paul just “sidestepped questions about fellow Sen. Ted Cruz‘s (R-Texas) eligibility to run for president, saying he was not a ‘birther.’” Paul’s contempt for the requirements of the Constitution comes as no surprise to me, despite the fact that his supporters frequently pretend he is a staunch “constitutionist.”

 

But a staunch constitutionist would be careful to remember Joseph Story‘s admonition that acceptable constitutional construction “can never abrogate the text; it can never fritter away its obvious sense; it can never narrow down its limitations; it can never enlarge its natural boundaries.”

(CNN) – Republican Sen. Rand Paul welcomed praise from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who said she’s on “Team Rand” when it comes to the recent intraparty feud between the senator from Kentucky and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

 

In an interview to air on CNN’sErin Burnett OutFront,” Paul also said Tuesday he plans to stay out of the debate over whether his fellow Republican colleague Sen. Ted Cruz would be eligible to run for president. [...]

On another front, his Senate colleague Ted Cruz has stoked speculation of a potential White House bid with his recent trips to early presidential primary voting states. Some, however, question whether Cruz would be eligible to run for president, given that he was born in Canada to an American-born mother and a Cuban-born father.

 

But Paul said he’s not wading into that debate.
