Senator Rand Paul on the Real Point of the Trump-Putin Press Conference No One Is Talking About

Published

on

Leave it to Rand Paul to be the only person saying anything sensible as the rest of the nation bickers over partisan politics.

The press has been absolutely beside themselves at Trump’s Helsinki meetings with President Putin, as they’ve been convincing us for two years that the two colluded to rig the 2016 election in Trump’s favor.

They’ve been undeterred by recent testimony from FBI lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page revealing that the Russia investigation was itself hatched to undermine Trump’s credibility once he won the presidency, and they’ve had quite the time clutching their pearls at Trump’s failure to adequately scold Putin for his perceived meddling in our election.

Both Trump and Putin, on the other hand, seem themselves undeterred by the media’s preferred characterization of their meeting.

But in the midst of all this drama, Senator Rand Paul, speaking on CNN’s State of the Union, infused some common sense into an otherwise facepalm-worthy situation, and reminding us all what we should really be focusing on: the security of our election process.

From CNS News:

They are another country. They are going to spy on us. The do spy on us. They are going to interfere in our elections. We also do the same. Doug Levin at Carnegie Mellon studied this over about a 50-year period in the last century and found 81 times that the U.S. interfered in other country’s elections. So we all do it.

What we need to do is make sure our electoral process is protected. And I think because this has gotten partisan and it’s all about partisan politics, we’ve forgotten that really the most important thing is the integrity of our election,” Paul told Tapper.

Tapper then asked Paul if Trump should ask Putin to extradite the 12 Russians who were recently indicted by Special Council Mueller just prior to the Helsinki summit.

“I think it would be a moot point,” Paul responded. “I don’t think Russia is sending anyone back over here for trial. The same way we wouldn’t send anybody over there for trial. No country with any sovereignty or sense of sovereignty is sending anybody to another country for trial.”

“I think we have to protect ourselves. So because we waste time saying Putin needs to admit this and apologize, he’s not going to admit that he did it. And we can’t take…on face value anything they tell us. We have to assume and if we have proof that they did it, which it sounds like we did, we should now spend our time protecting ourself instead of sort of having this witch hunt on the President.

“If the President was involved by all means put the information forward. There’s no evidence so far of the President’s involvement at all in this. So I think we need to be done with this so we can start actually protecting our elections from foreign countries.”

This is what the Democrats and the media don’t want us to pay attention to.

So that’s all the more reason to focus on our election process and stop trying to use Putin as a club to beat Trump over the head with.

Hundreds of Woke Corporations Sign Letter Opposing Election Reform Laws

Hundreds of anti-American, woke corporations have signed onto a letter opposing the election reform laws

Hundreds of anti-American, woke corporations have signed onto a letter opposing the election reform laws being crafted and passed in red states. Big companies including Amazon, BlackRock, Google, and Warren Buffett claim to be standing against “discriminatory legislation” that makes it “harder for people to vote.” This, of course, is a flat out lie pushed by extreme leftists. Not one red state is looking to make it harder for anyone to vote. According to the New York Times, “It was the biggest show of solidarity so far by the business community as companies around the country try to navigate the partisan uproar over Republican efforts to enact new election rules.” The Times added: The statement was organized in recent days by Kenneth Chenault, a former chief executive of American Express, and Kenneth Frazier, the chief executive of Merck. A copy appeared on Wednesday in advertisements in The New York Times and The Washington Post. Last month, with only a few big companies voicing opposition to a restrictive new voting law in Georgia, Mr. Chenault and Mr. Frazier led a group of Black executives in calling on companies to get more involved in opposing similar legislation around the country. This is just another example of these anti-American, left-wing corporations working to make an end-run around the U.S. Constitution to force a hardcore, leftist philosophy onto this country. https://twitter.com/dgelles/status/1382293992705028100 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

POLL: Most Americans Still Believe Democrats and Biden Cheated in 2020 Election

A new poll finds that the majority of Americans still think that Joe Biden did not legally win the 2020 election

2020 election

A new poll finds that the majority of Americans still think that Joe Biden did not legally win the 2020 election despite the crack down by Big Tech and the drumbeat from the left-wing media trying to force Americans into believing that Biden won. A new Rasmussen poll finds that most Americans still believe that fraud played a big part in Joe Biden’s “win” last year. Per Rasmussen: Most voters say it’s more important to prevent cheating in elections than to make it easier to vote and, by more than a two-to-one margin, they reject claims that voter ID laws are discriminatory. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 29% of Likely U.S. Voters say laws requiring photo identification at the polls discriminate against some voters. Sixty-two percent (62%) say voter ID laws don’t discriminate. The pill adds: “A majority (51%) of voters believe it is likely that cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, including 35% who say it’s Very Likely cheating affected the election.” And… Seventy-four percent (74%) of Republicans believe it is likely last year’s presidential election was affected by cheating, a view shared by 30% of Democrats and 51% of voters not affiliated with either major party. The poll was taken of 1,000 respondents on April 11 and 12. Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
