Nothing against Sen Cruz.

Just curious as to why Rand Paul voted for the nomination of Hagel. As did Rubio.

And also no mention of Brennan converted to Islam.

Director of the CIA; imagine that?

Here is one link on this:

As a Muslim, Guandolo said, Brennan became friendly with members of Hamas, designated a terrorist group by the State Department. Brennan, meant to succeed David Petraeus, has also deemed the Iranian-sponsored Hizbullah a political group that could be swayed to stop attacks on Western interests. “He has interwoven his life professionally and personally with individuals that we know are terrorists,” Guandolo said. “He has given them access to the National Security Council and National Security [Council] staff.”

@Ann S,

Rand Paul is of the opinion that the president is entitled to a certain latitude with regard to his appointments.

I heartily disagree, but then, I am a great deal more hard line than anybody in the political sphere. Politicians are ALL too accustomed to compromise as a way to get things done.

I’m a hardliner too.

Hagel is a very anti-semetic who also wants to gut our military.

Besides, not too much Rand can do to convince me he is on “our” side. I thnk he is just playing lip service IMO. (But then everybody has one; opinion that is.)

I just do not trust him. His association with Adam Kokesh and on RT (Russia Today) in the past is very troubling.

If you need info on Adam, I have it; if you don’t know already.

Can hear the gushing and shouting now “Rand Paul for president 2016”.

Anyway, looks like the obama admin is trying to create the perfect storm to a Islamic /Communist World Caliphate

Iranian born slum lord Valerie Jarrett
Muslim in charge of the CIA, Brennan
Hanoi John as Sec of State
and then there’s Hagel.
we got Holder running guns to the Mexican drug cartels
Big Sis Janet Napilitano

What more could a socialist ask for?

@Ann S,

Adam Kokesh appears to be clueless, misguided, and loudmouthed buffoon. That said, there is nothing wrong with appearing on RT in and of itself. 1389 Blog presents RT clips on occasion, and we will continue to do so. Because it is outside the lock-step control of the western MSM, RT often presents the truth when nobody else will. That said, sometimes RT puts a microphone in front of some people who have a few screws loose. For that reason, the fact that Kokesh endorsed Ron Paul isn’t necessarily an indictment of Rand Paul.

What bothers me about Rand Paul is that he should have taken a stand against ALL of these nominees, and he should have made a big issue of exposing the pro-Muslim proclivities of Hagel and Brennan.

Problem is, literally anybody that Obama appoints is guaranteed to be abysmal. So it’s pretty much a losing battle.

I’m just not sure how much Rand is following in his father’s footsteps. Ron has known to associate himself with some very shady people: Stormfront, David Duke, Chris North etc…; he had received campaign money that he refused to return. Adam was even asking for campaign funds on RT for Ron. Which is in violation of our laws. Ron went on Press TV (Iranian TV) and bad mouthed and blame America first which he should of been in violation of the Logan Act. I understand, most patriotic Americans are against this present admin, but we should not be against “all” of them. And we don’t need Putin’s ole KGB tactics and propaganda on RT to tell us that.

Rand just protests too much with his stand for Israel, knowing that any hint of anti-semitism is just taboo with most conservative people. But I have seen some videos where Rand appeared with Adam. And Ron supported Adam’s run for a Congress seat in Arizona. But there is a lot more to Adam and RT to be said.

And Paul’s campaign committee had a member of the Bilderberg group; the one NWO gurus, that the Paulites/Infowars desciples love to hate (Peter Theil)

Just sayin….how politics work when it comes time for paybacks. We should know that by looking at payroll deductions. The cronies get paid back at the taxpayers expense. And just, at what time, will their supporters try to imfluence the policies that reflect their agenda of anarchism once their boy gets in office.

But I am thankful that Ron, along with his massive gold holdings, deicded to ride off into the Texas sunset to retire. But as my granny always said; “you kill one fly, a hundred will come to their funeral”.

@Ann S,
You make some good points about Ron Paul. I consider him to be a loose cannon who is in denial about the Counterjihad.

The Soviet Union is gone and Vladimir Putin’s days in the KGB were long ago. Don’t forget that George H. W. Bush (of whom I harbor an extremely low opinion) didn’t merely work for the CIA – he ran the place. The CIA started out with a bunch of Ivy League socialites and became a dumping ground for the scions of old-money New England families who were too inept to be placed in good jobs anywhere else. Over the years, it’s done a poor job of gathering intelligence, a poor job of protecting the US against foreign espionage and foreign infiltration, and a poor job of protecting US interests abroad. Its management should be dismissed and its intelligence functions be returned to the armed services, where they were before.

Vladimir Putin is a far more trustworthy man than is John Brennan. Mr. Putin is unquestionably loyal to his own country and to his Orthodox Christian faith. John Brennan is loyal to his Muslim ideology and his Muslim associates, and to his own career. And as I mentioned before, RT is not a bad thing in and of itself. Appearing on RT is not inherently wrong, though violating campaign laws by accepting money to appear there while running for office is another matter entirely. As with every media outlet, it is our own responsibility to evaluate its news and commentary with a critical eye.

@ AnnS

Please don’t bad mouth Vlad Putin. He is probably the most decent man in politics today, especial amongst those on the top leaders. If America had a Putin, it would be much better off. He runs his country well and his people love him. Just ask anyone who has visited Russia in the last decade or so.
