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.

Biden’s Age Has Democrats Drawing Up Special “Pledge” for Geriatric Joe

As of this writing, no such clause has been floated for fellow democratic candidate Bernie Sanders who is, in fact, older than Biden.

Joe Biden

With Joe Biden “not” running for President in 2020, (wink, wink), the democrats have been able to spend their time fawning over a whole gamut of Oval Office wannabes. From the bizarre antics of dirt-eating Beto O’Rourke, to the racially tone deaf lies of Kamala Harris, the democratic field for our next presidential contest is rife with unintentional humor. And that’s before Joe Biden has even officially announced his presidency.  Make no mistake about it; he’s running, but the political PR firm pulling the elderly Biden’s strings have likely warned the former VP about announcing too early. Biden’s “slip of the tongue” was a cheeky way to gauge interest in his potential bid, and belied the longtime DC dweller’s true intentions. The democrats, however, have had a bit of a trepidation about a Biden candidacy, often citing his 76 years on this planet as a detriment.  Now, they’re taking their old-Joe ageism to the next level. According to a Thursday New York Times report, Biden’s advisers are discussing “a possible pledge to serve only one term” and framing Biden’s 2020 campaign “as a one-time rescue mission for a beleaguered country.” Biden is reportedly “uneasy with the prospect of pledging up front not to seek re-election,” though, “believing that it would make him a lame-duck president before he even takes office and cripple his ability to get anything done.” This news comes just days after leaked reports that Biden could be considering Stacey Abrams as a possible running mate, hoping to announce both candidacies at once. Abrams is known for her contentious loss in the 2018 Georgia Gubernatorial race, and for her participation decades ago in a flag-burning protest regarding Confederate symbolism on the Peach State’s flag.

Rosenstein Prepares the Democrats for a Major Let-Down in Mueller Report

Rod’s latest, emphatic characterization of Mueller’s final report has taken the wind out of the democratic sails in a BIG way.

Rod Rosenstein

President Donald Trump has been absolutely emphatic in his denouncement of the Robert Mueller-led “Russiagate” probe. “No collusion!”.  “It’s a hoax!”. We’ve heard these sentiments over and over again, and, as Mueller prepares to conclude year two of his wide-ranging investigation, the President has been spot-on so far.  Mueller’s only successes have come from charging low-level, former Trump acquaintances with crimes unconnected to the Kremlin, Vladimir Putin, or the Russian government. We also have learned from expert legal observers that we should be expecting the final report to drop sometime soon, based on a number of personnel changes and DC insiders. Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General will be staying on to provide a “heat shield” for the final report…his words, not ours. Rosenstein also detailed a very dreary reality for the democrats in a new letter, explicitly explaining why they shouldn’t be getting their hopes up for some slam dunk against the sitting President. In the letter, Rosenstein makes it clear he believes the Department of Justice will not – and cannot without violating long-standing Department of Justice policy – include disparaging or incriminating information about anybody who has not been charged with a crime. “Punishing wrongdoers through judicial proceedings is only one part of the Department’s mission,” Rosenstein wrote. “We also have a duty to prevent the disclosure of information that would unfairly tarnish people who are not charged with crimes.” According to inside sources, the investigation itself will no longer be seeking indictments, ergo, with the President not being indicted, Robert Mueller would be shirking his prosecutorial creed in releasing any information disparaging Donald Trump. Rosenstein is emphatic on this point: “In fact, disclosing uncharged allegations against American citizens without a law-enforcement need is considered to be a violation of a prosecutor’s trust.” And this isn’t some special,…
