Earlier this week the Democrats released a video contrasting Rand Paul statements against Rand Paul’s previous statements on a handful of issues. The video is a hatchet job and of course some things are taken out of context, but it highlights a major issue that’s been bugging me about Rand Paul.

Advocating for foreign intervention is not something you usually hear from libertarian poster children like Senator Paul. And yet, that seems to be what he’s preaching. From WaPo:

If I were president, I would call a joint session of Congress,” Paul told the AP. “I would lay out the reasoning of why...

Looks like the Select Committee headed by Trey Gowdy will be Bipartisan!

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker rounded out the top five...

I really enjoyed watching Meet The Press this morning.

It’s not that often that I watch live, usually restricting myself to watching clips.

I’m glad I watched. Rand Paul did a great job at many levels, particularly when Gregory brought up the Big Bubba in the room that no one wants to...

Legal Insurrection #07 coptic church

I have been following the disturbing news from Egypt closely; while it was hoped that a new president and a ban on the Muslim Brotherhood might stem more violence against its Coptic Christians, it looks like that is not to be:

Rand Paul was on Hannity last night.

He makes a point I completely agree with, that Congress should not, by way of authorization, try to micromanage any military action against or regarding Syria.  Either authorize the President to use force as necessary with regard to the use of chemical weapons in, to...

On the very short drive to work this morning, I heard an interview on local AM 870 radio with the Tompkins County town administrator.

The radio host kept trying to scare everyone about the Sequester cuts, repeatedly asking how it would affect people in Tompkins County.  The administrator couldn’t go t...

Just like the Rubio speech, a very good job.

Unfortunately, I could not find it on a channel last night, so I didn’t see it until this morning.

There isn’t going to be a vote tonight in the House, at least.

And it’s not clear what all the details are, but it looks as of this writing that taxes will go up on people making more than $400,000 individually or $450,000 as a couple. But beyond that, according to Rand...
