Rand Paul Calls Hillary Clinton A ‘War Hawk’

Rand Paul labeled Hillary Clinton a “war hawk” on “Meet the Press.” Paul predicted a “transformational election” if the Democrats nominate “a war hawk like Hillary Clinton.” “I think that’s what scares the Democrats the most, is that in a general election, were I to run, there’s gonna be a lot of independents and even [...]

The Kentucky Senator and likely presidential candidate says police tactics are part of too-big government. Washington has incentivized the militarization of local police precincts by using federal dollars to help municipal governments build what are essentially small armies—where police departments compete to acquire military gear that goes far beyond what most of Americans think of [...]

The Libertarian Moment?

Sunday’s New York Times Magazine has a feature story on the libertarian movement, suggesting it’s more popular now than ever. (h/t Political Wire) Libertarians, who long have relished their role as acerbic sideline critics of American political theater, now find themselves and their movement thrust into the middle of it. For decades their ideas have [...]

Yesterday on his MSNBC telecast, Ronan Farrow, like too many other seemingly naive members of his generation, confessed to being a fan of Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) in spite of the fact that Farrow, seconds earlier, aired a clip of the senator vocally endorsing the idea of “traditional marriage” and attributing the redefining of marriage [...]

Not that the Democrats need the help after the House of Representatives made an ostentatious display of passing their Fuck the Hispanic Vote bills last week, but Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) did their part for the Dems by producing some great campaign video for them last night. The only thing that [...]

Sen. Rand Paul has a white supremacy problem, and it isn’t MSNBC’s (completely true) “lousy lies” about the Civil Rights Act, or his defense of the Southern Avenger, or his dad’s racist newsletters. Instead, it’s with his devotion to protecting the white supremacist status quo, even as he attempts to surgically cut away some of its negative effects. [...]

Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) threw a hissy fit on MSNBC’s The Cycle Wednesday afternoon over coverage of his 2010 remarks about the Civil Rights Act, and the inflammation was still raging hours later when he spoke to a group of young libertarians about how the “cranks and hacks” at MSNBC just totally ruined his day. [...]

The two vastly different wings of the Republican party are exemplified by Rick Perry and Rand Paul. Kentucky Senator Paul says Rick Perry’s new glasses haven’t helped him see things more clearly. …apparently his new glasses haven’t altered his perception of the world, or allowed him to see it any more clearly. There are obviously [...]

Rand Paul On A Roll

Rand Paul is having quite a month. He slammed Vice President Cheney.  Then he makes a lot of sense on criminal justice policy.  He announced his support for immigration policy.  Less noticed was his speech on our criminal justice system. PAUL: If you look at the war on drugs, 3 out of 4 people in [...]

YouTube sensation Dick “Blame Obama for my criminal mischief” Cheney was given a platform to purvey his trademark fearmongering Neocon palaver this morning by ABC’s Washington bureau: “If we spend our time debating what happened eleven or twelve years ago, we’re going to miss the threat that is growing and that we do face,” Cheney [...]
