Mark Levin Rips Into Rand Paul Over Iran

0 Comments
Levin: Kentucky senator 'no different than' Ilhan Omar on foreign policy. Mark Levin tore into Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.) on his radio show Wednesday over his foreign policy after news that Paul wanted to be President Donald Trump's emissary to Iran. The conservative radio host responded to news that Paul had pitched Trump on being a backchannel to Iran for the administration and meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to reduce tensions. Paul had previously criticized the administration over the economic sanctions placed on Iran, saying Iranians viewed the sanctions as an act of war. Levin said Paul was "no different than Bernie Sanders or frankly Ilhan ...

Rand Paul Would Undermine Trump’s Iran Policy

The senator's views on the Islamic Republic are dangerous and deeply misguided. The Trump administration's strategy toward Iran is to exert maximum pressure on the regime to force it to renegotiate the flawed nuclear deal and, hopefully, to reach a broader agreement that curtails Iran's nonnuclear belligerence, both within its borders and across the Middle East. And if Tehran refuses to negotiate, then the administration will crush Iran's tyrannical regime using the immense weight of American power, giving Iranian leaders a choice: yield, compromise, and survive, or risk untold suffering—and possible extinction. The strategy is working. Already one hears ...

Libertarians smarter? [Full Thread]

Are liberals really smarter than conservatives? Or are libertarians smarter than anyone else? A recent column in The Daily Mail suggests so. True or not, it shows that “liberal” and “conservative” are not the only two extremes of opinion. In fact, they are special cases of a far more general political landscape.Traditional political labels By tradition, “conservative” and “liberal” (formerly “progressive”) stand for two different sets of freedoms on one hand, and entitlements on the other. This linear graph of left-of-center v. right-of-center dates from the National Assembly of Revolutionary France. The only thing that defined the ...

An Islamist, a Communist, and a libertarian walk into a bar. The Islamist says submission to Allah is the highest virtue and an ideal society adopts Sharia Law. The Communist strokes his grizzled beard in disagreement. “Religion is the opium of the people. What really matters is equality!” He then explains how Communism fixes inequality caused by bourgeois decadence. The Islamist nods approvingly—after all, decadence is sinful. Finally, the libertarian pipes up: “No, no. Individual liberty is what really matters! Sharia Law and communism are fundamentally immoral because they violate personal freedoms.” The Islamist and communist exchange a furtive glance before ...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: 'I Have a Lot of Common Ground With Many Libertarian Viewpoints'

(Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call/Newscom) Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D–N.Y.) spends much of her time in the public eye separating herself from the pack in Washington, D.C. Sometimes that means criticizing the GOP, other times, lamenting what she sees as the sheepishness of her own party. But in an Instagram live stream last week, the democratic socialist congresswoman told viewers that she does find some commonality with libertarians."I actually think I have a lot of common ground with many libertarian viewpoints in [the Republican] party," Ocasio-Cortez said, emphasizing her stances on immigration, the military, and privacy rights. Her admission comes not long after she and ...

Cory Booker Is Right: Joe Biden's Criminal Justice Record 'Destroyed Lives'

A sharp exchange at tonight's Democratic debate showed that, no matter how much he'd like to, former Vice President Joe Biden won't be able to sidestep his disastrous record on criminal justice. CNN moderator Jake Tapper asked Biden to respond to New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker's criticism that Biden's recently unveiled criminal justice reform proposal was "an inadequate solution to what is a raging crisis in our country." "Right now, we're in a situation where, when someone is convicted of a drug crime, they end up going to jail and to prison," Biden said. "They should be going to rehabilitation. They shouldn't be going to prison. When in ...

(TMU) — Political insider George Nader has been indicted on federal charges of sex trafficking for reportedly raping a 14-year-old boy that he transported from Europe. The Lebanese-American businessman pleaded not guilty to the charges—which also included separate counts relating to possession of child pornography and obscenity—in a Virginia court on Friday. According to court documents, Nader brought a 14-year-old boy into the U.S. through Dulles International Airport in Washington D.C. in February of 2000, the Washington Post reported. Nader, 60, once served as an adviser to the ruler of Abu Dhabi and also played a key part in Robert Mueller’s investigation ...

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Kentucky Democrats will have more options on next year's ballot when deciding who should take on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in 2020. Farmer and retired Marine Mike Broihier, a first-time candidate, entered the race Thursday with a three-minute advertisement that calls on voters to forget their labels. “It's time to retire Mitch McConnell," Broihier said in an interview with the Louisville Courier Journal this week. "We have to do it to restore our democracy, and I've been warned about what he's capable of doing, but it doesn't scare me."

Media And Public Disagree On Tulsi Gabbard's Debate Performance

Quartz cites multiple polls which show that Tulsi Gabbard won the debate: [T]wo candidates seemed to pique a lot of interest among US voters, at least when judged by who Americans searched for on Google: New Jersey senator Cory Booker and Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard. A poll by the right-leaning Drudge Report also found Gabbard to be the breakout of the debate with 38% of the vote, well ahead of Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren in second place. Gabbard also topped polls by local news sites including NJ.com and the Washington Examiner. Now contrast that with the ...

Who is John Bolton? "Tough Guy," Vietnam Draft Dodger

Who is John Bolton? "Tough Guy," Vietnam Draft Dodger Joining a long and illustrious list of privileged boys who start wars but never have to fight in them, it turns out John Bolton, Mister Let's Attack Iran, took an easy way when it was his turn to fight. It is not surprising that Bolton supported the Vietnam War while at Yale and might have even debated in favor of it as a member of the Yale Political Union. But when his draft number came up 185, Johnny Boy copped to the Guard. Since the National Guard units across America were full of boys doing exactly the same thing, almost guaranteed stateside service rather than nasty ambushes in the jungle, it sometimes took some ...

Trump fills the Pentagon swamp

When Donald Trump spoke of coming to Washington to “drain the swamp,” you might have thought the swamp he derided was the incestuous network of insiders who enrich themselves while passing through the revolving door between government and K Street. You might have thought the “draining” would involve slowing the revolving door and ceasing this cycle of self-enrichment. But no. By “the swamp,” Trump clearly just meant “people I don’t like.” And the draining never happened. This week, as a former executive from Boeing (the No. 2 contractor for the Defense Department last year) stepped down as Trump’s acting defense secretary, Trump replaced him ...

Why Avoiding the Cult of Personality Is Important

Many have been attracted to numerous political figures, and they can take it too far.Cult of Personality One of my biggest weaknesses is developing too much admiration for those who help contribute to how I think. I believe this rings true for most people. You likely experience this when listening to a band that soon becomes your favorite or an author who writes the novel that speaks to you. This often contributes to fan groups online and could potentially evolve into very heated arguments as to whose group is superior. When this translates to politics, the emotional connection is very similar. We often think about political figures in unhealthy ways, whether they fill us with overflowing ...

President Donald Trump claimed this week that he does not want war with Iran. If he really believes this, the president ought to look into what his subordinates are doing. Among their bellicose actions are deployment of the ‘Abraham Lincoln CVN-72’ carrier task force to the coast of Iran, massing a strike package of B-52 heavy bombers in Qatar, just across the Gulf from Iran, positioning more US warplanes around Iran, readying a massive cyber attack against Iran, and trying to stop the export of Iranian oil, upon which its economy depends. Plus repeated attempts to overthrow the government in Tehran – something the US already did very skillfully in 1953. If all this is not ...

Cali Democrat Dianne Feinstein Slams Illegal Immigration: “People Who Should Be Here Are Those Who Come Legally”

Democrats have been staunch supporters of unfettered, borderless immigration over the last several years, often claiming that anyone against allowing undocumented individuals into the United States is a xenophobe and morally bankrupt. But as you’ll see below from none other than California Senator Dianne Feinstein, reducing the flow of undocumented migrants is a necessity for a variety of reasons, including budgetary considerations and lower crime. In the following video Feinstein makes the exact same points President Trump is making today, except somehow Trump is a wrong for doing so. What changed? People who should be here are those who come legally… We’ve got to enforce ...
