I think Rand

I think Rand, no matter how many votes spew forth from his opponents, should vote his conscience. Oh wait....

Rand's actions are NOT just

Rand's actions are NOT just ones of strategy. It goes deeper than that. Rand has some major character issues. Several cases come to mind, most notably his endorsement of Romney on the show of man who had smeared his dad. I don't care if my father was a raving neocon or communist I would never do that, nor would any person of character!

Now....before you hit me back, let me stress that I have often defended Rand here such as on his views on Genetically Modified Food and immigration. I'll also agree that he is the best Senator, though Amash is better in the House and I have some hopes for Cruz. Despite all that, the man had a major character issue when it comes to parental loyalty and respect that goes far beyond ideological differences.

Rand is willing to compromise

Rand is willing to compromise on the issue of human life for foreigners. He thinks we can be in a 1984 style endless war and still maintain civil liberties and a free market at home. He is sadly mistaken. The more fearmongering you do abroad the more people at home accept if not outright clamor for a police state. Cause and effect.

So Everyone...

...we are all pretty disappointed, right? This is one issue but there is so much we can agree with Rand Paul on such as stuff like this: http://www.dailypaul.com/264886/rand-paul-we-need-to-cut-som...

We need to get an early start on 2016: Support Rand PAC 2016



Talk is talk and when it

Talk is talk and when it comes to the important things, he's a weasel jusr like 99% of the other republicans/democrats/scumbags.

The world is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good things is my religion. Thomas Paine, Godfather of the American Revolution

oh well

Not every son is like his father. Look at Ronald Reagan's son, he is opposite of his father. Saying that, I guess we should be glad that Rand isn't like that, complete opposite of his father. I'm still hugely disappointed though, but not surprised.


I think this measure will obviously cause some discomfort for the country yet I would also think that China, N. Korea, etc. would be more than willing to pick up any slack in trade with Iran.

So why easily enrich the Chinese anymore?


Like Ron said, Rand is his Own Person

Unfortunately, not the strict principled person his father is and yet he's the best we've got in the Senate. If Rand runs in 2016 he's likely to get my support (but certainly not because of yesterday's vote).

Rand absolutely shuns anything "conspiracy" and yet if Rand is going to be a little bit more lax on principles than his father then he really needs much more understanding of conspiracy to vote correctly whereas his father would have voted correctly on constitutional principles alone.

The fact of the matter is that Rand does not get it that the war on terror is a fraud perpetrated upon the American people (because 9/11 was a false flag designed to get us to accept this "war on terror"). Knowing that questions like should we or should we not sanction Iran become irrelevant. Let's delve into this so you can see what I mean. Please watch this first video linked here. It’s only one minute. You’ve read this far into my letter so please take just one small minute and watch this first video. You’re going to be impressed. This is a local news video of a witness named Kenny Johannemann testifying to explosions that happened in the basement of one of the WTC towers. While he is testifying you still see both of the twin towers burning behind him in the background. This was live footage and it's only ONE minute long. Go ahead and watch this here:

(YouTube Key Words: Johannemann suicide)

Those explosions were from charges that were set up to weaken the structure preparatory to pulling the tower. You say, “wait, this doesn’t fit anything I know, maybe there is some other explanation for those explosions in the basement.” True. This is just one piece of evidence, but it’s a piece of evidence that raises a lot of questions. You didn’t see this on TV either. Does that prick your interest?

The government has promoted a “theory” that maybe the fuel from the jet trickled down the elevator shafts into the basement and subsequently exploded. Could this be? Let’s continue and look at other evidence. Barry Jennings was another witness that got stuck in Building Seven during 9/11. Remember, Building Seven was NEVER hit by a jet. In Barry's case an explosion blew out a stair well below him leaving him hanging and stranded for hours until the fire department got him out. Both the twin towers went down during the time he was stranded. Building Seven, a tall building in it’s own right (47 stories tall), came down at around 5:20 (later that day). Fortunately, he was saved. Watch his account here:

(YouTube Key Words: Barry Jennings dead age – more hits when “dead age” excluded)

Again, the explosions he talked about were from charges that were set up to weaken the structure preparatory to pulling down this building. You say, “Hold On! Building Seven housed the FBI and the CIA offices, so who would have access to set up explosives in there? There has got to be another explanation.” True. This is just one piece of evidence which raises more questions. Again, you didn't see Barry’s testimony on TV.

William Rodriguez, head janitor at the towers, was meeting with some people in basement level #1 (the highest of several basement levels) when an explosion from below pushed everyone upwards, causing ceiling tiles to fall and walls to crack. Just as William started to express to others what he thought that explosion might be, an airplane hit and shook the building from above. His story begins at 9:31 here:

(Google Video Key Words: William Rodriguez Alex Jones)

Now, let’s look for other different kinds of evidence. Steve Jones, a physicist, obtained WTC dust samples from the collapsed WTC towers from people who lived nearby. He analyzed it and found that the dust contained residues of explosives. Steve Jones first became famous when he became known as the “voice of reason” during the Pons / Fleischman "Cold Fusion" debacle of 1989, if you remember that. For a Nuclear Physicist, like Steve Jones, analyzing dust samples for explosive residues is a relatively simple task. It may be similar to asking a PhD mathematician to do arithmetic. He reported his detailed findings here in Boston:

(Google Video Key Words: Steve Jones Boston)

In this lecture, you recall, he offered other scientists to take parts of his samples in order to analyze the "red chips" that he had recently discovered. That was December 2007. These specks have now, in fact, been confirmed to be unexploded “nanostructured super-thermite” particles. That confirmation is not just a smoking gun IT IS THE GUN. See the article here:


The actual paper in its entirety can be found here in PDF form. Be sure to click the “download” link here:


If you get into the actual paper, you learn that the explosives may actually have been sprayed into position like paint or insulation!

Steve Jones’ findings may not fit the stories that you have heard in the news but it does lend support to what Johannemann, Jennings and Rodriguez testified that they saw. You say, “The news media isn’t going to shoot itself in the foot by making something up.” So how do we rectify all the contradictions that we were told in the news? Could Steve Jones and these witnesses be glory-seeking kooks trying to make a name for themselves?

Then take a look at this:

Here is a BBC report announcing the collapse of the Solomon Building (the official name for Building Seven). There is only one problem. The reporter standing at the scene and announcing this didn't realize that, in fact, you could still see Building Seven still standing off to the right. It actually collapsed within about 20 minutes after that live report. Watch it here:

(YouTube Key Words: BBC Solomon slips – you get more hits by excluding “slips”)

How did the BBC know in advance that Building Seven would collapse? The fact that it was announced in advance is strong support that the flow of information on this tragedy was being controlled.

Were the people at the BBC the only people privy to this information? Probably not. Larry Silverstein was the leaseholder of Building Seven. In a 2002 PBS documentary he talked about how he discussed the Building Seven situation with the fire department and how the decision was made by that department to "pull" it. Well, there is one problem with his testimony that you may want to consider. It takes about a week to rig a building with explosives before you pull it. So are buildings constructed with built-in explosives just in case they need to be blown up in a hurry? Building Seven went down that same day. Whoops! Watch Larry's testimony from the PBS documentary here in this short clip:

(YouTube Key words: PBS Silverstein)

Incidentally, luckily for Larry, he insured his property in the nick of time just six months before September 11th! It was a sweet deal. So who orchestrated this terrorist event anyway? They had to get past the FBI and CIA and prepare at least three buildings for demolition as well as direct the activities of men with box cutters (if they even existed). It’s clear from the evidence presented here so far that at least some of the media was in on this. What else could explain the BBC blunder? They had to control the information to those of us who might not like the idea that a few thousand people had to be killed in order to fulfill some kind of agenda. What’s in it for these people that were “in the know?”

Aaron Russo was a famous movie producer who became best friends with one of the Rockefeller family members (Remember “The Rose” and "Trading Places" starring Eddie Murphy?). This is the same Rockefeller family that is a large shareholder of the Federal Reserve Bank -- a private company that loans money to our government and contributes to our huge national debt. You see the name “Federal Reserve” at the top the dollar bill. Yes, we're talking about THAT Bank! Anyway, the upshot of this friendship was that in the year 2000 (11 months before 9/11) Aaron Russo learned from his Rockefeller buddy that there was going to be an "event". He was told that out of this event the U.S. would go into Afghanistan and look for Bin Laden in Caves and then the U.S. would go into Iraq. His fascinating testimony about this "event" starts at 26:45 here in this interview:

(Google Video Key Words: Aaron Russo Reflections Warnings)

One more thing. In February 2009 a 44 story Chinese skyscraper caught fire and thoroughly burned into a crinkling cinder. However IT DID NOT COLLAPSE. By comparison WTC Building Seven had a few small fires and was never hit by a plane. It DID COLLAPSE. See that article here:

(Google Key Words: China 44 fire consumes)

Now see this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZEvA8BCoBw
(YouTube Key Words: architects engineers 911 truth)

Amazingly, all this evidence is only the tip of the iceberg. Each of these are separate independent pieces of evidence from unconnected sources. When taken together they paint a clear picture. You are a juror in a court of law. What would be your verdict? Remember, the word “conspiracy” is not in the dictionary to describe a fiction.


He is his own person and he

He is his own person and he just happened to vote like the 100 other own persons in the Senate. Bwah ha ha ha ha ha.

He could have voted against and said he did not want to undermine the President, who stated that if sanctions get too onerous allies will not support them.

This was not a bread and butter issue. It got nothing and did not cost anything for Kentucky. I doubt it would have been a big problem if he voted against it.

Well stated. He is actually

Well stated. He is actually more of a warmonger than Obama is on this issue.

Is it possible he wasn't

Is it possible he wasn't there, and the other guys next to him pressed his button on the vote?

Tired of making excuses for Rand...

He's really got them fooled

He even votes like a neocon.

And you guys still didn't

And you guys still didn't know that Rand is NOT like his dad? I have never been a big fan of Rand.. He is way too political, even though some things he does are good...

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

The only thing he seems to back up is civil liberties in the

States, so we can't expect much else really. I'm happy he works on freedom issues but he seems to be going mainstream, unlike his AWESOME FATHER.

Shocker!! Not!!

Stop putting your hope and faith into politicians. They're not going to save the world.

If you don't know what anarcho-capitalism is, it's time you found out.


...riiight, and you bring this about by, uh, well, I guess one day the State will just give up. Don't waste your time on politics. /sarc

By the way, this is not an attack on an-cap, I'm an an-cap, it's an attack on your political strategy, or lack thereof.

Back To The Republic

Have you checked out this video? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYleC7l86ys&feature=plcp this video was told to me by my uncle in Nebraska.

There is a Republic site for every state in the union. Find yours.

Here is my state: http://www.republicfororegon.org/

The main site, http://www.republicfortheunitedstates.org/ is under maintenance right now, but should be back up soon.

That was a losing proposition when it started.

I doubt the main site will come back up.
