Rand Paul Discovers $50 Billion In Gov’t Waste, Including $500,000 to Study Frog Mating Calls

And they aren’t even American frogs!?

The United States government steals so much money from the American people on an annual basis in the name of taxes that they literally have no clue what to do with all the money.

Half a million to study the mating calls of Panamanian frogs seems just a little, I don’t know…ridiculous, doesn’t it? Was anyone demanding to know about Panamanian frogs and what they do in the dark in the privacy of their own homes? Highly doubtful.

Still, it happened. And that’s not all. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul (R) has released more information on government waste, via Daily Wire:

In the spirit of the fictitious Seinfeld holiday, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has released The Festivus Report 2019, an annual report to highlight wasteful government spending.

In the report, Paul draws attention to over $50 billion in government waste, which was spent on everything from a grant in which a “significant portion” of the funds went to studying the mating calls of frogs in Panama ($466,991), a program under which the U.S. supplies children in Afghanistan with textbooks, many of which turned out to be subpar or otherwise unusable ($33,921,175), and helping the Peruvian government to develop a “Green New Deal” (up to $10,000,000).

During a recent speaking gig with Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Paul explained how Democrat Socialists like Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders have similar views to those of notorious murderers Josef Stalin and Mao Zedong.

The problem is that the media doesn’t care.

Can the media honestly hate Trump so much that they’re willing to overlook all the bad things Democrats are doing, have done, and/or will do?

From Daily Wire:

When Gaetz asked Paul about the way in which certain politicians and media figures “champion Venezuela,” the senator replied:

Rand noted, “Venezuela is just such a disaster. I mean, people literally eating their pets. We tell the story of a young lady who was a teenage girl, and she has a gang, but her gang is to defend the turf of trash. So, there’s certain garbage receptacles and she keeps people out of them because those are her garbage receptacles to look for food. How sad. People killing rats in the street to try to eat them, pigeons, and it just, it really is a sad thing.

He added, “Kind of going back to the world economy thing, we have to understand why the world economy got better, and we have to understand why Venezuela’s deteriorating into, you know, chaos – and that’s, I think, part of what the book is doing – it’s part of also the debate we should be having up here, and we don’t seem to have it in Congress, is that we don’t develop, we aren’t really talking about which economically system is better.

He continued, “And nobody in the media seems to care that what AOC is supporting or what Bernie is supporting is Stalin and Mao and Pol Pot, and all these terrible ideas, and they get away with it because they aren’t challenged.

LOOK:

Where’s Rand Paul’s neighbor when we need him?

Check this out. Bette says she doesn’t support promoting violence before literally promoting violence.

I DO NOT promote violence but… Rand Paul says the Kurds are being “ingrates” for taking their frustrations out on US troops. Which is a good reminder for us all to be more grateful for the neighbor who beat the shit out of Rand Paul.

Reactions:

The replies in this are gross. You’re ok with violence against a sitting senator? You’d be screaming if this happened to Feinstein, Harris, Blumenthal, etc and rightfully so. But it’s Rand Paul so it’s ok. You all make me sick.

The modern left: I don’t promote violence but fuck you to death

She attracts a vile crowd, by the replies to her.

She convicts herself with her own statement.

She is promoting violence in the very tweet that says I don’t promote violence.

China’s ‘Oppressive & Inhumane Regime’ Has Been Added to UN Human Rights Council (Details)

Right after they failed to warn the world sooner of COVID-19…

China has no business being on the Human Rights Council of the United Nations. That should go without saying. And yet, we live in crazy times. Here’s the deal, via UN Watch: China was appointed on Wednesday to a United Nations Human Rights Council panel where it will play a key role in picking the world body’s human rights investigators — including global monitors on freedom of speech, health, enforced disappearances, and arbitrary detention — in a move that has sparked protest by international human rights activists. “Allowing China’s oppressive and inhumane regime to choose the world investigators on freedom of speech, arbitrary detention and enforced disappearances is like making a pyromaniac into the town fire chief,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, a non-governmental human rights organization based in Geneva that closely monitors the 47-nation UN Human Rights Council, and a leader in speaking out at the UN for victims in China. Neuer added, “It’s absurd and immoral for the UN to allow China’s oppressive government a key role in selecting officials who shape international human rights standards and report on violations worldwide.” https://twitter.com/HillelNeuer/status/1245890358342553603?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1245890358342553603&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Funwatch.org%2Fchina-joins-u-n-human-rights-panel-will-help-pick-experts-on-free-speech-health-arbitrary-detention%2F https://twitter.com/UNWatch/status/1245891526892363776?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1245891526892363776&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Funbelievable-china-joins-united-nations-human-rights-group-despite-unleashing-global-pandemic%2F Here’s more COVID-19 randomness, via Twitter… https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1246522120584208384 https://twitter.com/realDailyWire/status/1246548840980725760 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1246578318679343104 https://twitter.com/realDailyWire/status/1246554736788033536 https://twitter.com/barstoolsports/status/1246587867603886080 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1246432969469726720 https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1246522957398245381 https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1246522958421639168 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1246534491402895363 https://twitter.com/IAMTOMMACDONALD/status/1246510492958494720

Ocasio-Cortez: America Is A ‘Brutal, Barbarian Society’ for Most ‘Working-Class Americans’

She cannot be serious…

New York Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should not be seen as a role model for young women. Sure, she obtained a prestigious position at a young age as a member of the lower chamber. But at the end of the day, morals and values are what matter. AOC also has next to zero love for her country, despite her successes. To claim the United States is a “brutal, barbarian society” is bush league at its finest.

Either that, or she’d unintentionally list things she deems unacceptable that actually occurred on Obama’s watch. Behar named Ocasio-Cortez as a potential running mate for 2020 presidential hopeful Joe Biden. There’s just one major problem. And Joy had no idea.
