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 Republicans Beg Attorney General Bill Barr to Investigate Hunter Biden’s Laptop

Barr doesn’t seem too concerned.

Published

on

House Republican leaders are pleading with Attorney General Bill Barr, essentially begging him to actually investigate Hunter Biden’s laptop.

They issued a letter to Barr on Monday urging him to appoint a special counsel to look into the contents of Hunter Biden’s emails, which appear to show an extreme amount of cronyism that may implicate his father in some illegal or at least highly immoral activity involving foreign governments.

“These alleged revelations raise serious questions about former Vice President Joe Biden’s reported participation with his son’s business, dealings, specifically whether the former vice president (1) received foreign monies during his tenure in the Obama administration and (2) if former Vice President Biden allowed his son to peddle access to his father with foreign business entities,” the letter states, according to a Fox News report.

House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) signed the letter along with Reps. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Ted Yoho (R-FL), Andy Harris (R-MD), Steve King (R-IA), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Jody Hice (R-GA), Ted Budd (R-NC), Jeff Duncan (R-SC), and Mark Green (R-TN).

“Americans deserve public officials who take great care to protect the integrity of their offices. Our constituents place great trust in their leaders at every level of government to conduct the people’s business with the utmost honesty, transparency, and accountability,” the letter continues. “If these reports about former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, are true, the former vice president fell far short of his responsibility to uphold his constitutional oath and betrayed the sacred trust of the American people.”

“It is imperative that the American people receive answers and a full accounting of former Vice President Biden’s dealings with his son and his son’s business partners, and if the former vice president misused his office for personal gain,” the letter states.

However, these Republican lawmakers are not likely to get anywhere considering Barr’s inability or unwillingness to clean up deep state corruption.

Big League Politics has reported on how Barr’s probe into the Russia-gate scandal is resulting in no indictments despite the incredible amount of evidence showing brazen criminality:

Those who “trusted the plan” that Attorney General Bill Barr was going to clean up the deep state and put corrupt actors from the Obama administration to justice are learning a hard lesson in how the swamp works.

Barr, who initially served under globalist President George H.W. Bush and was responsible for orchestrating the heinous Ruby Ridge atrocity, is reportedly not going to charge anyone from the Obama regime for the “unmasking” of their political opponents in the Russia-gate scandal.

According to the Washington Post, the investigation ordered by Barr has concluded without “finding any substantive wrongdoing.” U.S. Attorney John Bash is the man who was tasked with this investigation by Barr, and he is allegedly using his authority to protect the deep state from being held accountable for the greatest crime in American history. Barr’s office is hiding Bash’s findings from the public.

Bash announced his departure from the Department of Justice on Oct. 5 but never mentioned the unmasking probe. The AG’s office has seemingly done everything in its power to keep this information under wraps, similar to what has been done with the probe into the origins of the Russian collusion scandal that is being conducted by U.S. Attorney John Durham…

President Trump is getting the picture that he along with the American public have been had by AG Barr and other veteran deep staters.

“If that’s the case, I’m very disappointed,” Trump told Rush Limbaugh last week. “I think it’s a terrible thing, and I will say it to [Barr’s] face.”

Barr has shown he is all bark and no bite. If President Trump gets elected to a second term, Barr will need to be replaced with an AG who has a spine in order for lasting reforms to institutional corruption to take hold.
