Rand Paul Squandered The Only Shot At NSA Reform For A Long, Long Time

The Keystone XL pipeline wasn’t the only piece of legislation that was killed on Tuesday. Make no mistake, it’ll unfortunately be back after the new Congress is sworn in next year, but for now it’s been blocked. The other item on Tuesday’s agenda was the USA Freedom Act, a bill designed to reform the National […]

Rand Paul: Having It Both Ways

2016 Schröedinger’s Candidate, Sen. Rand Paul, has taken another one of his principled stands both before and against a pet issue (again), and has voted against a bill that would curb some of the NSA abuses of US Citizens: Some of its opponents, like Senator Saxby Chambliss, Republican of Georgia, believe it went too far in […]

Not too long ago, Bill Maher opened the door to the possibility that he’d support Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-KY) forthcoming presidential run, forcing many of us to ask how Maher, who’s otherwise pretty savvy, could be so thoroughly flimflammed by Rand Paul’s duplicity on a long list of issues. As we’ve covered here many times, […]

Rand Paul’s Big Problem

Under Kentucky law, he can’t run for two offices at once. So, if he runs for president, he will have to forfeit his Senate seat. While the national GOP’s resources primarily targeted the state’s Senate race, Paul focused his attention on winning control of the Democratic-controlled Legislature in Frankfort. His reasons went beyond mere party […]

In a not-so subtle dig at Hillary Clinton’s age, Rand Paul told Politico how grueling it is to run for president. the 51-year-old senator talked unblinkingly about the possibility of a run, and sought to draw a sharp contrast between himself and Hillary Clinton — none too subtly raising the issue of her age. At […]

Senator Rand Paul says Tuesday night’s election is a repudiation of Hillary Clinton. “I think we’re going to pick up enough [seats] to take over the Senate, and I think it is a repudiation basically of the president’s policies, but also Hillary Clinton,” Paul said on Fox News Tuesday night.”Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton have […]

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul says the Libertarian in him is “horrified” by the government quarantining someone. “The libertarian in me is sort of horrified at the idea of indefinitely detaining anyone without a trial,” Paul said. “One of the basic rights we inherited from the English and that we got from common law was the […]

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul was speaking at a Republican field office in Michigan in a predominately African-American neighborhood. The weakness, Paul added, is particularly serious when it comes to appealing to black voters. “Remember Domino’s Pizza? They admitted, ‘Hey, our pizza crust sucks.’ The Republican Party brand sucks and so people don’t want to be […]

Ralph Nader does not want to see Hillary Clinton become president. “Well, Hillary [Clinton] is a corporatist and a militarist,” he said during an recent interview with We Are Change. “Do we want another corporatist and militarist? She thinks Obama is too weak. He doesn’t kill enough people overseas. So she’s a menace to the […]

Rand Paul, the eye doctor turned Republican Kentucky Senator, weighed in on the Ebola virus, which is like going to a foot doctor when you have stomach pains. “[The Obama administration] has downplayed how transmissible it is,” Paul told CNN on Thursday morning. “They say it’s the exchange of bodily of fluids. Which makes people think, […]
