Rand Paul’s Wife Sleeps With Loaded Gun by Her Bed. The Reason Why is Sad.

Published

on

Kelley Paul, wife of the esteemed Sen. Rand Paul, has confessed to sleeping with a loaded gun next to her bed and three deadbolts on the doors due to the fear she experiences from threats made against her husband and their family over the last 18 months.

This, folks, is absolutely atrocious. No person should feel this terrified because of their political opinions. Good grief.

“I now keep a loaded gun by my bed,” Kelley Paul wrote in an open letter to Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), which was published Saturday on CNN. “Our security systems have had to be expanded. I have never felt this way in my life.”

She told Fox News’ Mike Huckabee that she has called Booker to retract his statements this summer that encouraged liberal supporters to “get up in the face of some congresspeople.”

Last year, Rand Paul was severely injured by a man who attacked the senator while he worked in his yard in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Paul suffered six broken ribs, lung damage, and had several bouts of pneumonia.

Some in the media have ridiculed the violence that her husband experienced, Kelley Paul said.

“Then to have people in the media who now claim they are advocating for victims actually ridicule him and laugh and I just found that incredibly hurtful and painful,” Kelley Paul told Fox News.

“MSNBC commentator Kasie Hunt laughingly said on air that Rand’s assault was one of her ‘favorite stories.’ Cher, Bette Midler, and others have lauded his attacker on Twitter,” she wrote in her letter to Booker.

We now live in a day and age when you can’t have different opinions from the status quo without getting violently physically and verbally abused by folks on the left. It’s a truly sad state of affairs.

Gone are the days of civil discourse, when folks from different walks of life could have honest, open, spirited discussions without fearing that someone was going to blow their head off over having a different perspective.

Let’s hope that one day makes a return.

Colorado Mayor Bans Pledge of Allegiance Because It’s Not Legitimate

The left-wing Mayor of Silverton, Colorado, Shane Fuhrman, unilaterally banned the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance.

The left-wing Mayor of Silverton, Colorado, Shane Fuhrman, unilaterally banned the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance because he finds it unnecessary. Mayor Furhman insisted that the Pledge isn’t even legitimate, saying, “it’s not really a thing,” when he argued against reciting the pledge, according to the Denver Patch. The issue came up last year when the city began meeting over zoom because of the coronavirus. At that time, it was decided that the council members who didn’t want to recite the pledge would just turn off their computer cameras during the segment of the meeting. But even during that period, the mayor’s request to ditch the pledge was voted down 4-3. However, now that the meetings are back to in-person, the mayor simply acted unilaterally and ended the recitation of the Pledge. “Due to the direct and indirect threats, inappropriate comments in and out of our public meetings, and general divisiveness and issues created in our community, we will not be reciting the Pledge of Allegiance during Town of Silverton trustee meetings,” Fuhrman said during theJune 14 meeting. Fuhrman went on to demand that if anyone had proof in the city’s rules saying he could not make such a decision they better speak up. “If you’d like to find somewhere in the code, something that doesn’t permit me to do this,” he said, “then I welcome that discussion at our next meetings.” At least one council member was not happy with the decision. Trustee Molly Barela reminded the mayor that they had already voted to continue reciting the pledge, and added, “It’s been done for a long time. We all took an oath, and we as a board we decided it would be done.” Members of the public who were in attendance at the meeting were no less supportive…

Promise Broken: 60 Percent of Americans Will Suffer Tax Hike Under Biden’s Plan

Biden ran for office repeatedly claiming that no one making less than $400K would pay more in taxes under his plan.

Biden ran for office repeatedly claiming that no one making less than $400K would pay more in taxes under his plan. We are now seeing that Biden lied. The Tax Policy Center released new data on the realities of Biden’s tax proposals and found that Biden’s policies will slam middle and low-income taxpayers right where it hurts. The organization says that 99.8 percent of Americans earning between $500,00 and $1million will pay an average of $8,810 more in taxes each year under Biden’s tax plan. This might be in keeping with Biden’s campaign pledge that only “the rich” will pay more. But the TPC also found that people who make far less will also get hit under Biden. The center says that people making between $75,000 and $500,00 will also get pinched. This is not as a result of direct taxes on income but of the impact of the other hikes in rates, such as the corporate tax rise. According to the Daily Mail: Three-quarters of households earning between $75,000 and $100,000 annually would face paying an additional $440 per year in taxes under Biden’s tax hikes, according to the data released last week. About 69 percent of those earning between $100,000 and $200,000 would see their yearly tax bill rise by $830 on average, according to the analysis. Meanwhile, 83.7 percent of those earning between $200,000 and $500,000 would see an increase of $2,040 on average. But most Americans will be impacted indirectly by Biden’s giant tax hike. “For those looking to see if Biden kept his promise to not raise taxes for those making $400,000 or less, the answer is: Mostly, but not entirely,” wrote Howard Gleckman, a senior fellow at the Tax Policy Center. “Including corporate tax increases, most households would pay more in 2022. About three-quarters…
