EXCLUSIVE: Rand Paul Scores Vote To End Wars, Asks, ‘Where Was The Anti-War Left?’

Published

on

Left-wing senators Cory Booker and Bernie Sanders both bolted when confronted about supporting Senator Rand Paul’s amendment to the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which would end the authorization of military force in Afghanistan and Iraq.

A vote on the AUMF will be held on Wednesday morning, the first vote on the issue in 15 years — thanks to Senator Paul’s efforts.

The left, once the side of opposing endless and needless wars, has now become the side of destruction as Senator Paul leads the fight to get the nation out.

On Monday evening, Senator Paul staged a lone sit in on the senate floor to demand an end to the authorization of military force in Iraq and Afghanistan. The protest came to an end when senate leadership agreed to grant him a four hour long debate on the issue will be held on Tuesday, under his control.

“Where was the anti-war left demanding wars to end? Where is the constitutional conservative right demanding Congress reclaim its war powers?” Paul asked in a comment provided to Big League.

When questioned by Big League Politics and the Gateway Pundit on Tuesday afternoon in the Dirksen Senate Building about whether or not he would support Senator Paul’s efforts, progressive independent Senator Sanders could not get away fast enough.

“Wait and see,” Sanders said when asked if he would support Senator Paul’s amendment.

When asked why the right is leading the fight against endless intervention instead of the left, Sanders would not respond. He also refused to respond to a question by Gateway Pundit’s White House Correspondent Lucian Wintrich about why the Democrats are now the party of war.

Likewise, Democratic Senator Booker was all smiles when first approached, but quickly slammed the door in the reporters faces when pressed for details on why the Democratic Party is supporting endless occupation.

Here is the Periscope of our encounter:

“What makes you think that I’m not?” Booker said when asked why he wasn’t supporting Senator Paul’s efforts. Well, Booker, the fact that you tweet every move you make but have not said a word about the amendment speaks volumes.

Senator Paul spoke on the Senate floor to begin making his case in the afternoon.

“Senator Paul isn’t finished and still controls four hours of debate. He wanted to start while they keep working to secure a vote, but if the vote doesn’t happen soon, he will be back,” Senator Paul’s office told Big League Politics.

Republican Senator Jeff Flake, as well as Democrats Dick Durbin, Tim Kaine, Ron Wyden, and Chris Murphy are expected to speak in support of Senator Paul’s amendment, sources tell Big League Politics.

“The Senate attempted to shorten debate and move forward without consideration and debate on my amendment to end our AUMF in Afghanistan and Iraq. Senate leaders have agreed not to try to end debate early, and have agreed to debate under my control to debate these wars. I will continue to fight, and if necessary, object, to continue this debate, secure a vote, and force Congress to do its duty,” Senator Paul said in a comment to BLP on Monday evening.

House Democrats Call on FBI To Investigate Parler Over Jan. 6 Capitol Siege, Possible Russian Ties

Psychotic levels of tyranny.

Published

on

House Democrats are calling on the Biden administration to investigate the social media provider Parler for its supposed role in fomenting the Jan. 6 Capitol siege as well as the company’s possible Russian ties.

Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), who is Chair of the House Oversight Committee, released a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray demanding investigations into Parler, as the Democrats prepare unconstitutional overreach against their political opposition on the first day of the Biden regime.

“Numerous Parler users have been arrested and charged with threatening violence against elected officials or for their role in participating directly in the January 6 attacks,” Maloney wrote.

Additionally, Democrats are seizing upon the fact that Parler CEO John Matze’s wife is Russian to spread more Russian collusion conspiracy theories.

“Concerns about the company’s connections to Russia have grown since the company re-emerged on a Russian hosting service, DDoS-Guard, after being denied services by Amazon Web Services,” Maloney wrote in the letter. “DDoS-Guard has ties to the Russian government and hosts the websites of other far-right extremist groups, as well as the terrorist group Hamas.”

She concluded her letter by stating “as the Committee conducts its own investigation of these matters to inform its oversight and legislative efforts, I request a meeting with appropriate FBI officials on the status and scope of its review, consistent with protecting the integrity of law enforcement efforts on this front.”

Portions of the letter can be found here:

Big League Politics has reported on the systemic discrimination against Parler by Big Tech entities as part of their institutional oppression against conservative speech:

The conservative social media platform, Parler, is already on its last legs, as the platform’s developers relied upon Big Tech to provide their infrastructure.

Parler CEO John Matze had claimed that there were a bunch of competitors vying to host the social media site. However, the notion of a free market is laughable with a handful of far-left tech monopolies dominating the world, and he was forced to admit the awful truth in a Fox News interview.

“They all work together to make sure at the same time we would lose access to not only our apps, but they are actually shutting all of our servers off tonight, off the internet,” Matze explained.

“They made an attempt to not only kill the apps, but also destroy the entire company… Every vendor from text message services to email providers to lawyers all ditched us too on the same day,” he added.

Matze said that Parler is pretty much doomed because of the Orwellian super-structure that has been put into place to destroy all potential competition.

“We’re going to try our best, ya know, to get back online as quickly as possible but we’re having a lot of trouble because every vendor we talk to won’t work with us because if Apple doesn’t approve and Google doesn’t approve, they won’t,” he said.

“Amazon is the largest cloud storage vendor in the world, and we use them to host our servers. Hundreds of them. Hundreds of servers. And they gave us basically, they said, you have 24 hours to get all of your data and find new servers. So, where are you going to find 300 to 500 servers in a 24-hour window, and how can you send all of the data from everybody out to them in a 24-hour period? It’s an impossible feat,” Matze explained.

The momentum is behind the Orwellian Nightmare, and the rule of law is dead. The people are running out of peaceful options to combat Big Brother tyranny.
