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.

Louie Gohmert Blames Mask Usage for COVID-19 Diagnosis, Plans to Take Hydroxychloroquine to Treat Virus

The mask may have caused him to catch the Chinavirus.

Published

on

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19, which the fake news media has attributed to his lack of using a face mask.

However, Gohmert says he tested positive for the disease after complying with mask mandates more than ever. He feels the mask usage did not protect him from getting the virus and may have even contributed to it.

He told reporters that it is “ironic” that he would catch COVID-19 now “because a lot of people have made a big deal out of my not wearing a mask a whole lot, but in the last week or two I have worn a mask more than I have in the whole last four months.”

“I can’t help but wonder if by keeping a mask on and keeping it in place, if I might have put some germs, some of the virus on the mask and breathed it in,” Gohmert said.

Democrats are chiding Gohmert because he has talked against lockdown policies, mask mandates, and more overreach implemented because of COVID-19 mass hysteria.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that she is “sorry for my members, who are concerned because he has been showing up at meetings without a mask and making a thing of it.”

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) added that he is “concerned about the irresponsible behavior of many of the Republicans who have chosen to consistently flout well-established public health guidance perhaps out of fealty to their boss, Donald Trump, who is the head of the anti-mask movement in America.”

Big League Politics has reported on how the mass hysteria has caused Americans to turn on their heritage of freedom and liberty to support forcible unconstitutional mandates:

A new poll from Morning Consult/Politico reveals that a solid majority of Americans support a mask mandate that would implement fines of jail time for those that refuse to wear masks in public places.

The asks registered voters if they’d support a mandated implemented by their state government. 72% of of responding registered voters stated that they’d “strongly” or “somewhat” support a state-implemented mask mandate that is punishable by jail time or fines.

The poll asked the following question.

Based on what you know about the COVID-19 pandemic (coronavirus), would you support or oppose your state instituting a face mask mandate in public spaces, where not wearing a mask could be punishable by fine or jail time?

Curiously, Baby Boomers, one of America’s most conservative voting demographics, support a mask mandate most strenuously. 78% of Boomers support the mask mandate. Millennials (68%) and Generation Z (63%) support it the least, although wide majorities still do.

Democrats support the mask mandate in almost unanimous fashion, with 86% of them supporting it. A solid majority of Republicans support mandatory masks as well, with a majority of 58%.

There simply is widespread public support for wearing a mask and taking limited measures to deter the spread of coronavirus in the United States. Republicans and conservatives risk alienating such popular sentiment at their own electoral peril.

Gohmert plans to take hydroxychloroquine in order to treat COVID-19 and fend off potential symptoms.

“My doctor and I are all in, and I got a text just before I came on from a dear friend, [a] doctor, who just found out he had it, and he said he started a HCQ [hydroxychloroquine] regimen, too,” Gohmert said while appearing on Fox News.

“I got a tiny little taste of what you and the president get every day,” Gohmert said to host Sean Hannity, “The left went nuts.”

Gohmert hopes to be among the 99.7 percent of coronavirus sufferers who recover from the disease.
