Hmmm. This is awfully coincidental. I guess Rand Paul wont be around to filibuster the digital currency “aid package” being negotiated today.
Outstanding review of one of my favorite movies, “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” (1939), starring Jimmy Stewart as the future Ron and Rand Paul!
True, Rand does compromise more than Ron, but he still stands up on principle against the oligarchs, and filibustered for 13 hours to protect the 4th Amendment!
First half is good. I’ll go even further. Trump is setting US up for disaster! He has refused to talk with Iran (as Rand says), tore up the peace deal (lying about the $), and implemented sanctions (an act of war); though, they have had no nuclear bomb program.
Trump talked with Kim of North Korea, on the other hand, who has nuclear weapons, and now just lets them do whatever they want.
Trump is following the deep state orders, which will destroy US.
Tulsi’s forthrightness during Tuesday’s debate about our ‘regime-change’ goal in our post-9/11 wars seems to have emboldened Rand Paul to speak more straightforwardly as well — which frustrates Jake Tapper of CNN.
3:55 “I would say that the majority of leadership on the Republican and the Democrat side are interventionists. … Republicans and Democrats are unified in being in support of war, support of intervention, and support of never going home.”
5:30 “The U.S. has been preventing any kind of discussion, because it’s been the policy of the war caucus to have Assad removed. This is the John Bolton; this is the Lindsey Graham move. They believe in regime change. They want to get rid of Assad. But also, the Hillary Clinton group wants this too. So it’s really left and right saying we have to have regime change.
“Trump Derangement Syndrome has officially come to the senate. The hatred for the president is so intense that partisans would rather risk war than give diplomacy a chance.

Good, but Russia now has nuclear superiority to the US, and soon also will China. Dumitru Duduman and many other serious Christians have had visions of Russia and China nuking US, which will likely include EMP bombs too. We need to protect our power grid now and tell the truth about Russia and China’s nuclear buildup, and our build-down — and PDD 60, Clinton getting rid of “launch on first warning.”

Chuck Baldwin: ‘Christian’ bookstores are packed with tomes unmasking Islam, but not one volume delves into the depravities of Orthodox Judaism — In “Judaism’s Strange Gods,” Christian scholar Michael Hoffman documents his provocative thesis that Judaism is not the religion of the Old Testament, but the newly formalized belief system of the Pharisees • Liberating the reader from the accumulated shackles of decades of misinformation, this book shows that Judaism’s god is not the God of Israel, but the strange gods of Talmud and Kabbalah, and the racial self-worship they inculcate
(audio) Amazon Bans Texe Marrs’ Book “Holy Serpent of the Jews: The Rabbi’s Secret Plan for Satan to Crush Their Enemies and Vault the Jews to Global Dominion” w/ Jeff Rense 3/13/17 — Claiming free speech, Amazon sells millions of books, including witchcraft, rape, torture, murder, sexual perversion and cannibalism. They sell ‘Jesus in the Talmud,’ which covers the Judaic belief that Jesus was a bastard child of a whore and is burning in a vat of fiery excrement in hell • ‘Holy Serpent of the Jews’ has struck a raw nerve, exposing the true religion of Judaism • Both the Talmud and the Kabbalah are racist documents, claiming the Jew as the ultimate in evolution and as gods on earth. Their ‘Great Purification’—espoused by rabbis today—is at hand, where Gentiles will either capitulate and become slaves to the Jews or they shall die—a truth that must not be known • Jesus warned about the ‘leaven’ of the Pharisees, saying they ‘follow their father the Devil’ • Most pastors today enable these Talmudic, Satanist destroyers, claiming they’re obeying Gen. 12:3, which is about Abraham, not Talmudic, anti-Christ Israel

Senators Look to End Yemen War With First-Ever War Powers Challenge
US involvement in Saudi invasion never authorized by Congress
A bipartisan effort by four senators is looking to end the US military’s involvement in the Saudi-led war in Yemen, with the introduction of the first ever War Powers Act vote to come out of the Senate.
Senators Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Rand Paul (R-KY), Mike Lee (R-UT), and Chris Murphy (D-CT) are forwarding the bill, which notes that Congress has never authorized the use of military force in Yemen. This should allow Congress to oblige the administration to end US involvement in the war. Sens. Sanders and Lee had a formal press conference Wednesday.
The US has participated in the Saudi invasion of Yemen since it began in 2015, with US planes performing mid-air refueling missions for Saudi bombers, and US warships at times participating in the Saudi-led naval blockade which is causing mass starvation in Yemen.

REPUBLICANS CAVE ON BUDGET DEAL
The Republican leadership finally gave up any pretense of fiscal responsibility Thursday after RINO Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell forged a budget deal with Democrat Chuck Schumer that abandons all of the previous spending caps that have partially limited government spending for the past two years. President Trump thinks it is “wonderful” and House Speaker Paul Ryan pushed through this new spending bill in the House that will raise the deficit by almost a trillion dollars over the next two years. This follows in the footsteps of back-to-back Obama Administration trillion dollar deficits that Republicans loudly condemned. A fully predictable consequence of this unwise compromise is that it will help Democrats blame the growing deficit on the Trump tax cut rather than their own participation in this increased spending bill. In the House, among Republicans, only the Freedom Caucus block of 30 conservatives opposed the bill and pointed out the obvious—that this only accelerates the road to national insolvency, when in the future, all US revenues will be needed just to pay the interest on the national debt.
Here’s what’s in the Senate deal….
The Senate was expected to pass this vote on Thursday, but Sen. Rand Paul, who is vehemently opposed to this removal of the current spending caps refused to allow a vote. Under Senate rules, all 100 senators must agree to hold a vote, if it violates mandatory time limits for consideration of a bill. Without unanimous consent, the vote could only occur on Friday at 1 a.m. Senators excoriated Paul for standing on principle, saying he was just wasting their time in forcing them to wait until after the midnight deadline. Paul responded that he was elected to stop this kind of spending and that he wouldn’t add his name to the yes list under any circumstances. Bravo! …
“Government isn’t going to make us be a virtuous society.”
