Wayne Dupree knocks it out of the park with his tweet:
An absolutely must-listen radio show by Bryan Fischer on Rand Paul’s big social issues tent which is in total contrast to Conservative principles.
Paul’s Endorsement of Mitch McConnell
One must ask, why did Rand Paul endorse Mitch McConnell? Could it be for McConnell’s rolodex as Paul runs for President? Might the Kentucky Kickback, the $2 billion included in the debt deal negotiated with Senator Reid during the government shutdown, play a role in the endorsement since Paul needs Kentucky law changed so he can simultaneously run for re-election to the U.S. Senate while running for President? From the Senate Conservatives Fund:
“The McConnell-Reid deal not only funds Obamacare and suspends the debt limit, it also includes a provision in Section 123 that increases funding for the Olmsted Locks and Dam in Kentucky from $775 million to $2.9 billion.”
Paul’s Positions and Why They Are a Danger to America
Based on his own statements over the last two years, Rand Paul clearly supports amnesty for the illegal aliens who entered the U.S. illegally and those on expired Visas that refused to leave. See some of his statements below. Question the quote? Click on the link and read for yourself.
April 1, 2014 – Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) thinks Republicans can win Hispanic voters only if the party gets “beyond deportation to the rest of the issues.” Breitbart’s article includes several quotes we include below including the damaging from a WNDTv interview: “Are they for sending these people home?” he asked. “Do they want us to put them in concentration camps, on buses, and send them back home? I don’t think anyone’s proposing that.” Source – Breitbart.com
March 19, 2013 – “I think the whole debate on immigration is trapped in a couple of words: Path to citizenship and amnesty,” Paul told reporters on a press call Tuesday. “If we get trapped too much in these descriptive terms, whether we’re for or against a path to citizenship, I think what we’re gonna do is polarize the debate…Let’s start that conversation by acknowledging we aren’t going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants. If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you.” Source – Business Insider
March 13, 2013 – Rand Paul supports pathway to citizenship but not e-Verify. “My plan will not, though — and this is where I disagree with some in the bipartisan group — impose a national ID card,” he said. “It will also not have mandatory E-Verify. I don’t mind if there’s E-Verify, maybe related to the tax code somehow, but I don’t like the idea of making every business owner a policeman.” Source – The Huffington Post Paul gets it wrong again. The employer is NOT the police officer, the employer is protecting their employees from criminals, the illegal aliens that have no issue violating our laws. Instead he rewards the criminals for their lawlessness.
And about those back taxes, Paul says this: “I would be willing to forego the fines and back taxes in exchange for a longer and significant time period before these folks are eligible to enter into the green card line,” he wrote. Source – Huffington Post In Rand Paul’s world, American citizens would continue to serve long prison sentences (5-20 years) for tax evasion but illegal aliens would be rewarded for the felonies they commit.
Senator Paul has been working behind the scenes to corrupt Congressional Tea Party members and push them towards his amnesty. Rep. Justin Amash (@RepJustinAmash) couldn’t wait to draft a letter outlining support, signed by South Carolina Rep. Mick Mulvaney (@RepMickMulvaney) and Rep. Jeff Duncan (@RepJeffDuncan), North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows (@RepMarkMeadows), Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie (@RepThomasMassie), and FORMER Florida Rep. Trey Radel (@TreyRadel) which refers to illegal aliens’ “rights”. Well Mr. Paul and other Congressional members, the only people with RIGHTS are U.S. citizens and you spit in our faces with your reward program for violating the most sanctuary of our laws, our sovereignty.
Question for you Senator Paul. Based on your statements of today, as covered by Breitbart.com, what part of our Constitution and Rule of Law say that Senators can trade amnesty for the potential of future votes? And when will you communicate your position, in person and on live television, to these victims’ families:
- Vanessa Pham MURDERED by an illegal alien living in sanctuary VA here
- Jamiel Shaw Jr.’s family, a young man MURDERED by an illegal alien gang member released after committing a crime involving a gun. here
- Minnesota parents whose 4 school children were MURDERED by an illegal alien here
- 95 percent of all outstanding warrants for homicide in LA (which total 1,200 to 1,500) target illegal aliens. Up to two-thirds of all fugitive felony warrants (17,000) are for illegal aliens here
- Breitbart News reported in July 2012 that released illegal aliens were responsible for committing 19 murders and 142 sex crimes
- Newsmax reported in September 2013 that nearly 3,000 convicted illegal alien sex offenders were released back into the US
- The Blaze reported in July 2013, this illegal alien drug dealer was deported 11 times.
- March 6, 2014 report that 27 illegal aliens convicted of sex crimes, including against children, were arrested at the Texas border
- March 1, 2014 report that 34 illegal aliens committed 100 sex crimes against North Carolina children in just February 2014!
- March 31, 2014 reports here and here and a great UK Mail article here that 68,000 illegal aliens with criminal convictions were released into OUR society in 2013.
Deafening silence from Rand Paul on the travesties listed above. Does he believe he represents illegal aliens and not American citizens? His actions and his statements today covered by Breitbart.com is bringing that into focus.
Paul refuses to listen to Americans. In a February 2013 poll by Townhall.com, the majority of those polled support deportation of illegal aliens. So what is Paul’s position on deportation? He said this during an interview with WNDTv “They’re not going home,” Paul said, adding that even the most vocal opponents of so-called “amnesty” seem to recognize this fact. “Are they for sending these people home? Do they want us to put them in concentration camps, on buses, and send them back home? I don’t think anyone’s proposing that.” Perhaps Rand Paul should read U.S. law, that law he SWORE an OATH to uphold. Deportation is REQUIRED. And the Reuters poll confirms it too. Mr. Paul, perhaps this from The Daily Caller and the Quinnipac Poll will convince you!
Paul also ignores Evangelical Christians on immigration. According to the Center for Immigration Studies, in a recent poll conducted by NumbersUSA of Evangelical Christians: “respondents, by five to one, regard strict immigration laws as “follow[ing] biblical teaching by protecting the most vulnerable within the national community.” The small minority says such laws “violate biblical teaching by keeping out poor foreigners seeking a better life.”
FLASHBACK when the law mattered: According to the Huffington Post, Paul’s amnesty position is an about-face from his 2010 and 2011 stance. “In June 2010, Paul said there should be an underground electric border fence to keep out illegal entrants. He also introduced a resolution in January 2011 with Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) — who opposes immigration reform plans — that would end the right to citizenship for children born in the United States to undocumented immigrants.”
Israel and Evangelical Christians
From the Weekly Standard in September 2013: “In an interview with Buzzfeed’s McKay Coppins, Kentucky senator Rand Paul criticized “some” Christians who support Israel and the Jews and those Christians’ “overeagerness” to go to war. Adding to sentiments he expressed in a speech earlier this year, Paul told Buzzfeed:
I think some within the Christian community are such great defenders of the promised land and the chosen people that they think war is always the answer, maybe even preemptive war. And I think it’s hard to square the idea of a preemptive war and, to me, that overeagerness [to go to] war, with Christianity.”
And his father’s actions are no better, giving the keynote address to a fringe group that denies the Holocaust. Also from the Weekly Standard: “Rand Paul’s father, former Texas congressman Ron Paul, recently spoke at a conference sponsored by a fringe organization whose leader has denied the Holocaust took place.”
Likely the most insulting tweet from Rand Paul, taking our Lord’s name in vain all in the name of campaign fundraising.
Obama’s Cabinet Appointments
And then there are the Obama cabinet appointments he voted to confirm, stating the President should be free to choose his own cabinet. Confirmation is one of the fundamental roles of the U.S. Senate. Paul’s statement on voting for John Kerry:
“I voted for John Kerry and I agree with nothing he represents,” he said, “but I voted for him because I thought there was a level of at least basic human decency and honesty that exists there … and that the president has the prerogative to determine political appointees.” (emphasis added). Read the entire article here.
Pot Legalization or Ignoring Federal Law
The Pro-Pot Paul supporters frequently beg Rand Paul to legalize pot and did so again at the 2014 CPAC event. So let’s wait for the driver high on pot to slam into a vehicle filled with children on their way to a soccer game (reported effect: “Slowed reaction time and impaired motor coordination”); let’s pay the price of adolescent learning disabilities because they inhaled (reported effect: “Impaired short-term memory.”) (Marijuana’s health effects: Memory problem and addiction). And no worries about the employer that is sued for having a “pot-prohibition” policy or dares to discipline and employee that shows up to work high or doesn’t show up for days and screams discrimination. See Marijuana’s health effects: Memory problem and addiction for more information.
Interesting how Rand Paul rails about the Obama Administration failing to enforce “certain laws” but he has been dead silent on Holder’s admission that they will not seek to enforce the marijuana laws against Washington and Colorado.
Paul’s Connection to Big Tent GOP and Karl Rove
Could Rand Paul’s about-face on enforcement of immigration laws be tied to the GOP’s 2012 post-mortem “analysis”, Karl Rove, Jeb Bush? Perhaps. Breitbart News reported in March 2014 that Paul is doing a robocall for Rove’s organization American Crossroads in support of the GOP-endorsed candidate in FL.
Paul’s New BFF Eric Holder
Such a cozy relationship between Rand Paul and Eric Holder, both attempting to dictate to states that felons, yes rapists, child molesters and murderers, should be permitted to vote and is framing his new bill as a “civil right”! From The Hill in February 2014:
“Paul is working on a bill, referred to as the Civil Rights Voting Restoration Act, (emphasis added) that would apply to federal elections, he said during a speech at the law center.”
I must ask Mr. Paul, what about the victims’ civil rights? Loss of voting rights is part of the criminal sentence.
