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.

Suspected Terrorist Murders Three In Attack At French Church, Mayor Wants To Oust ‘Islamo-Fascism’

Three individuals were murdered in cold blood in Nice, France on Thursday in what looks to be the third terrorist attack on French soil in the past month. A man armed with a knife walked into Notre Dame Basilica in Nice and killed two people, fatally wounding a third individual who was able to get outside before dying. French police are treating the incident as a terrorist attack. “Everything leads us to believe it was a terrorist attack within the Notre Dame basilica,” Mayor of Nice Christian Estrosi posted on social media. Here’s more on this from The Daily Wire: Several French media outlets reported that at least one of the victims of the attack was beheaded, mirroring an attack earlier this month in which a French schoolteacher was beheaded by a suspected Islamic radical. Police captured the attacker soon after the incident, shooting him in the shoulder and transporting him to a local hospital, according to The Guardian. Estrosi said that while the man was being taken into custody, he repeatedly yelled “Allahu Akbar.” “We have two people killed inside the church … and a third person who was in a bar facing the church where she had taken refuge,” Estrosi told the media. “Enough is enough … we have to remove this Islamo-fascism from our territory.” On Oct. 16, an 18-year-old man beheaded French history teacher Samuel Paty outside of the secondary school where he taught. Paty was killed after showing caricatures of the Prophet Muhammed to his class for a lesson on free expression. “Before it was a school professor, this time the Islamo-fascist barbarism chose to attack inside a church. Again, it is very symbolic,” the mayor said. Toward the end of the month of September, a suspected terrorist with a butcher’s knife seriously wounded two…

Luxury Buildings Hire Armed Guards In Preparation For Election Day Madness

Published

on

The ultra-rich in the city of New York have been preparing for the possibility of civil unrest on Election Day next, hiring armed guards to watch over luxury buildings in Manhattan. Managers over at the Time Warner Center, located on Columbus Circle — where penthouse apartments are only a measly $62.5 million — are deploying off-duty police officers armed with “submachine guns” to keep an eye on things. Other homes and buildings for the wealthy are taking other measures to increase security. “Everybody is worried about security,” an insider said to reporters. “Every top building is adding security. It’s out of control. We hope it won’t be needed, but we will be ready.” The insider said the building is currently working with the NYPD and Homeland Security. “There will be officers with submachine guns,” the source stated. “We’ve always had immense security, but there will be more. We’ll have extra patrols. The entire building can be shut down with one button.” via Fox News: Many buildings are hiring off duty cops instead of private security companies because they fear a repeat of Denver, where a private guard shot and killed a protester, said one real estate insider. “The NYPD is advising buildings to get the extra security,” the source said. “They’ve never done this before.” Other top buildings, such as 220 Central Park South, which is home to hedge funder Ken Griffin’s $238 million condo, say they are already well guarded but will take extra precautions, like keeping entrances locked at night, and only open to residents. How sad is it that folks are terrified about their physical safety and for the property they own simply because of a national election, which is one of the many privileges of living in a republic? We, unlike many nations, get to choose…
