This is a real head scratcher. Rand Paul will back Mitch McConnell for re-election as Kentucky Senator in 2014. McConnell has had a good day. First Ashley Judd wouldn’t challenge him, now Rand Paul will support him and not support a tea party challenger. McConnell’s camp also claims that Rand Paul has officially endorsed McConnell, although nothing public from Paul has been said.
Ann Coulter whined on Hannity (again) about Rand Paul. She doesn’t like him because ‘He’s Not Our Candidate,’ He Wants ‘Legal Pot And Amnesty For Illegals’ something. This is from the same Ann Coulter who had her (whatever) firmly attached to Chris Christie’s belly for all of 2012. I realize there will never be the perfect candidate. I may not agree with Rand Paul and everything, but if I had a chance to vote for Rand Paul, or one of Coulter’s preferred establishment GOP hacks like Christie, i’d vote Rand Paul in a heartbeat. Could has jumped the shark as far as I’m concerned. I still love her books, but as a pundit, she’s as relevant these days as a box of rocks. Time for her to pen another book: ‘My love affair with the fat man named Chris.’
What do Bill Kristol, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Karl Rove and other old, stale RINO hacks all have in common? They fear Rand Paul and the new generation of libertarian-conservatives or constitutional-conservative. Bill Kristol went on America Live with Megyn Kelly to whine about how ‘dangerous’ the ‘Neo-Isolationist’ Rand Paul is. Kristol also declared that Paul has no political future or something.
It used to be in years past that Ron Paulians would flood the CPAC straw poll making sure Ron Paul would win it. It’s always been, and will always be a meaningless poll. But Rand Paul is different. Ron Paulians don’t like him as much as his daddy and conservatives love him. This makes Rand Paul winning of the CPAC straw poll a bit more impressive. Paul won the poll with 25% of the vote. Marco Rubio got second place with 23%.

Too late! Moss covered RINO John McCain apologizes to Rand Paul and Ted Cruz for calling them ‘wacko-birds’ (Video)
I don’t know why Fox News continues to give this washed up moss covered RINO John McCain a platform. He gets enough air time on the leftist Sunday news shows on ABC, CBS, NBC and CNN. Anyway, the old codger McCain finally apologized (although not directly to their faces) for calling Rand Paul and Ted Cruz ‘wacko-birds.’ Seems ole McCain is backing off a bit on his bashing of ‘those damn libertarian kids.’
Rand Paul didn’t want to name any names when he called said that the current GOP has grown stale and moss-covered, but I think you can figure our for yourself who Rand Paul was taking a shot at. If you need any reminder, just look at the old, state, moss-covered RINO John McCain who had a cute little dinner with Obama during Rand Paul’s filibuster of John Brennan, then threw a tantrum the next day over it on the Senate floor. Paul also spoke about the importance of liberty, and how people just want to be left alone and not have their lives run by government.
Lets take a trip down memory lane back into the late ’80s and early 1990s when John McCain was a part of the Keating Five. This was was a group five United States Senators accused of corruption in 1989. Four of them where Democrats. The other was John McCain. From Wikipedia:
The Keating Five were five United States Senators accused of corruption in 1989, igniting a major political scandal as part of the larger Savings and Loan crisis of the late 1980s and early 1990s. The five senators – Alan Cranston (Democrat of California), Dennis DeConcini (Democrat of Arizona), John Glenn (Democrat of Ohio), John McCain (Republican of Arizona), and Donald W. Riegle, Jr. (Democrat of Michigan) – were accused of improperly intervening in 1987 on behalf of Charles H. Keating, Jr., Chairman of the Lincoln Savings and Loan Association, which was the target of a regulatory investigation by the Federal Home Loan Bank Board (FHLBB). The FHLBB subsequently backed off taking action against Lincoln.
Lincoln Savings and Loan collapsed in 1989, at a cost of over $3 billion to the federal government. Some 23,000 Lincoln bondholders were defrauded and many investors lost their life savings. The substantial political contributions Keating had made to each of the senators, totaling $1.3 million, attracted considerable public and media attention. After a lengthy investigation, the Senate Ethics Committee determined in 1991 that Cranston, DeConcini, and Riegle had substantially and improperly interfered with the FHLBB’s investigation of Lincoln Savings, with Cranston receiving a formal reprimand. Senators Glenn and McCain were cleared of having acted improperly but were criticized for having exercised “poor judgment”.
The crusty old codger just wouldn’t stop his whining about Rand Paul. For some reason, McCain took his clown show and crybaby ranting to Piers Morgan to whine about Rand Paul. Thankfully, no one saw it since it was not only on CNN, but also on Piers Morgan.
“Well, you know, I am always intrigued by the fact that when I disagree with my own party leadership, my own president — like saying that Donald Rumsfeld ought to resign, [or] we need to do the surge — then I’m a brave maverick,” McCain said. “When I’m taking on others, then he’s just an angry old man.”
Marco Rubio – after his little game joining Rand Paul filibuster votes to confirm Al Quds John Brennan (with 12 other ‘Republicans’)
After some Republicans dined with Obama and others joined Rand Paul during his filibuster, today Al Quds John Brennan was confirmed with 13 Republicans voting to confirm him. The list included the usual worthless RINOS of John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Orrin Hatch, and Lisa Murkowski. But Marco Rubio who joined the filibuster yesterday with Paul also voted to confirm Al Quds Brennan.
The thirteen RINOs who voted to confirm Brennan, and thus give Obama or any future president to kill Americans on American soil if the see fit include:
Notice most of the idiots who voted to confirm Brennan also happened to be Obama’s ‘dinner guest’ last night.
Rand Paul shoves it back in McCain-Graham’s faces – they think ‘whole world is a battlefield’ (Video)
I’m so glad Rand Paul did what he did yesterday. Not only did he expose Obama and Brennan, but he also exposed what worthless, spineless ‘Republicans’ there are in the Senate who call themselves conservatives and who stand for constitutional rights. Both John McCain and Lindsey Graham threw tantrum’s today over Rand Paul’s nearly 13 hour filibuster yesterday, and Rand Paul gave it right back to them. In an interview with Megyn Kelly on Fox News, Rand Paul said that these two old neo-cons think that the whole world is a battle field (including the homeland.)
During dinner with RINOs during Rand Paul filibuster – Obama asked for another $600 billion in taxes!
While John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and other worthless RINOs were dining with Obama last night during Rand Paul’s filibuster, Obama not only tried to buy off the Republicans to vote for Al Quds Brennan, but Obama had another request during dinner. Another $600 billion in tax hikes! Obama loves his cocaine. Taxing Americans are like the new cocaine for him.
Rush Limbaugh on Rand Paul and washed up McCain,Graham – ‘Old guard’ GOP ‘playing’ footsie with Obama, ‘new kids’ were talking about liberty (video)
Rush Limbaugh is generally referred to a ‘Neo-Con’ by hard core libertarians. Yet, even Rush Limbaugh loved what Rand Paul, Mike Lee and other young Republicans did yesterday during the nearly 13 hour filibuster of Al Quds Brennan.
Old crusty John McCain and flaming Lindsey Graham throw a tantrum at Rand Paul after dining with Obama (Videos)
Rand Paul is the future of this country. Old and crusty washed up hacks like John McCain and flaming Lindsey Graham are yesterday’s news. Graham is up for re-election next year, and I hope he gets primaried. In the mean time, the two washed up old Republicans McCain and Graham threw tantrums from the Senate Floor over Rand Paul’s ‘scaring of Americans.’ Crusty old McCain yelled ‘Calm Down Senator’ to Rand Paul.
Senator Rand Paul epic filibuster over – lasted 12 hours and 52 minutes and done without a teleprompter
Rand Paul’s epic filibuster finally came to an end, clocking in at just under 13 hours at 12 hours and 52 minutes. How can ANYONE with a good conscious vote for cloture on Al Quds Brennan now? John McCain was no where to be found, nor was Richard Burr of North Carolina or Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. Instead, they decided to dine with Obama, and go God knows what else with him afterwards. Just remember. From this day forward, anyone who votes for cloture on Al Quds Brennan will be casting a vote giving Obama (or any US President) the authority to kill you.
