Limo Rider Hillary Clinton Lectures Us on Evils of Uber

uber_logo Uber is bad because consumers aren’t paying more to crony taxi cab companies. When a politician is described as “boosting labor” that means he or she wants to force consumers to pay more and get fewer options.  Thus the U.S. News and World Report headline: “Hillary Clinton Boosts Workers, Blasts Uber.” Hillary Clinton is out to boost labor rights at companies like Uber, a move that may resonate with some voters but could alienate small-business owners. The leading Democratic presidential Read more [...] Continue reading →

The GOP Candidate Who Scares Dems the Most?

rand paul cspan Rand Paul is the GOP candidate who has been attacked more times by DNC social media than any other Republican candidate. The Hill reports, The Democratic National Committee has unleashed relentless attacks on a handful of GOP candidates in the ever-widening 2016 presidential field, while virtually ignoring others. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush have emerged as the DNC’s top punching bags, while the committee has mostly disregarded other Read more [...] Continue reading →

Rand Paul’s New Patriot Act?

Rand_Paul_Filibuster Doesn’t the term “patriot” sound so good?  Being called a patriot is something that every citizen of every country considers a badge of honor and distinction. So in the political battle of words and semantics, whoever can claim the “high ground” of patriotism would most likely emerge as the victor. After the terror attacks of 9/11, former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft brought before Congress a list of recommended changes in the law to combat terrorism. Some of these measures Read more [...] Continue reading →

Republicans, Dems Furious that Illegal Spy Program Paused

rand paul Rand Paul is learning that hell hath no fury like Republican politicians scorned in their attempt to continue an illegal spy program. The author of the Patriot Act says that the NSA was running an illegal spy program that was never authorized by the legislation. Right now the courts have agreed with him and told the NSA that their bulk data collection is an illegal spy program. That was a significant failure because they should have ruled it was unconstitutional under the Fourth Amendment, but Read more [...] Continue reading →

Rand Paul Would Be Risking His Career If He Supported the Patriot Act

nsa obama Contrary to the media, the risk for Rand Paul would be to cave, not to hold firm. Politico.com ran an interesting article yesterday: “The moment Rand Paul has been waiting for.” What concerns me about the story shows up in the teaser line: “He plans to force the expiration of a surveillance law he’s been railing against for years — but the political risks are enormous.” No they are not. Not for Rand Paul. Rand Paul has been talking against the Patriot Act and against the Read more [...] Continue reading →

Rand Paul's Best Campaign Ad Is also His Greatest Act as Senator

rand ron paul Rand Paul's best campaign ad might be saving the American people from the Patriot Act before he is even President! The best part about Rand Paul's best campaign ad is it doesn’t cost him a penny. He doesn’t have to buy time on television or on the radio or in the newspapers. He gets publicity for free. For example, consider this headline from Politico: “PATRIOT Act on life support after Rand Paul stymies renewal efforts.” The Senate plunged into chaos Saturday as Republicans found themselves Read more [...] Continue reading →

FBI Admits Patriot Act Hasn’t Helped

fbi wall seal The FBI admits that they have not stopped any terrorist attack or caught any terrorists using the Patriot Act. While Jeb Bush is campaigning on how Rand Paul is wrong and the Patriot Act is great, the FBI admits that it hasn’t had anything to do with keeping us safe as far as they are concerned. This is (somewhat surprisingly) reported in the Washington Times: “FBI admits no major cases cracked with Patriot Act snooping powers.” FBI agents can’t point to any major terrorism cases they’ve Read more [...] Continue reading →

Rand Paul Is Right: ISIS is Far Worse than Saddam Hussein Was

iraq terrorism Rand Paul makes the most obviously true statement about ISIS and Saddam Hussein, but it is one that other Republicans are running from. CNS News reports, “Sen. Rand Paul: 'ISIS Is More of an Aberration' Than Saddam Hussein.” Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) told NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday that the threat of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is “more of an aberration” than Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was. “I would say that I think that we are more at risk for attack from Read more [...] Continue reading →

Pro-Life Rand Paul Distinguishes Himself on Opposing Abortion

rand paul Some other Republican candidates would hold to the same views, but pro-life Rand Paul is making them central to his campaign. I saw this on Rand Paul’s Facebook page. Here is a version I found on Youtube.com: I strongly believe in the sanctity of life and that an abortion takes the life of an innocent human being. As a physician, one of the first things we learn is to ‘do no harm.’ Since the Roe v. Wade decision, over 50 million children have been killed in abortion procedures. This Read more [...] Continue reading →

Democrat Senator Trying to Rescue Us from Republican Spy-Lovers

repeal the patriot act Democrat Senator Ron Wyden promises to filibuster the Republican attempt to renew Patriot Act with NSA surveillance. God bless him! There’s no other way for a Conservative Christian to pray: May God defeat the Republicans and bless Ron Wyden, Democrat, as he tries his best to give us back a piece of our Constitutional republic and our Fourth Amendment. From the Hill: “Spy critic pledges to filibuster rubber-stamp Patriot Act.” Sen. Ron Wyden is increasing his opposition to Senate Republicans’ Read more [...] Continue reading →

"Who Has the Right Vision to Lead America?"

Rand Paul tweet hc messages The jury is out regarding a new potential Democratic nominee for President of these United States. Many questions are traveling media circuits such as, “Can a woman lead the country? Can a Saul Alinsky Democrat heavily steeped in the corruption of China Gate of the 90s, and the current failed policies of the Obama administration, lead the country? Ted Cruz, who I had the opportunity to share the stage with in January, asked the question on Twitter. “Is the world a safer place because Hillary Read more [...] Continue reading →

Michael Gerson Tells Huge Lie That Americans Want to Believe

mccain Syrian terrorists Michael Gerson attacks Rand Paul and shows what kind of delusions he thinks his readers want to embrace. Ironically, Gerson’s headline in the Washington Post is “Rand Paul’s grand deception.” I don’t want to say much about Rand Paul in this post. I’m more interested in Gerson’s sick denial of the truths he admits in his own column. What kind of mental illness pervades our nation that we actually read this stuff? Gerson writes about an anti-war push by Rand Paul back when he filibustered Read more [...] Continue reading →
