PAUL OF PERSIA: Rand Paul Emerges as President Trump’s New Peacekeeping Force in Iran

The non-interventionist Senator is expected to take a more hands on role in diplomacy with Iran.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) recently proposed to President Donald Trump that he should take a larger role in negotiating with Iran during a golf outing, a notion that Trump apparently supports, in order to prevent another endless war from starting in the Middle East.

Paul wants to sit down with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif in order to ease tensions with the Islamic Republic, which has been confirmed by four U.S. officials according to Politico. This news has enraged the neocon war hawks in the Trump administration, who want a wedge to remain between the two nations preventing any talks.

Zarif is in New York City this week for meetings at the headquarters of the United Nations. He is scheduled to meet with several journalists and think-tank officials, but a meeting with the junior Kentucky Senator may also be in order. Zarif made it clear in recent statements that Iran is not opposed to engaging the the U.S. in peace talks.

“No, we are at the bargaining table. It is the United States that left the bargaining table,” Zarif said to NBC News reporters who suggested Iran was unwilling to engage in talks. “And they are always welcome to return.”

“The United States is addicted, unfortunately, to sanctions,” Zarif added. “Once those sanctions are lifted, then room for negotiation is wide open.”

This is already yielding positive results in the global markets, as oil prices have started to plunge over the news that there is less of a likelihood for a U.S. war with Iran. The WTI fell to $57 on Tuesday while the Brent dropped by 3 percent, slumping below $65.

Paul has praised Trump’s ability to avoid conflict with Iran even with the various pressures of the military-industrial complex trying to goad him into another regime change war.

“It really takes a statesman to show restraint amidst a chorus of voices for war,” Paul said to Fox News’ Martha MacCallum.

Paul has previously conducted a diplomacy mission to Russia in Aug. 2018 where he delivered a letter to the Russian government on Trump’s behalf, much to the chagrin of the fake news and deep state forces that have tried to keep the two nations at odds.

“The letter emphasized the importance of further engagement in various areas including countering terrorism, enhancing legislative dialogue and resuming cultural exchanges,” Paul wrote last year.

Paul remains as a prominent influence on Trump’s thinking, assisting the President with helpful advice as Trump implements his ‘America First’ foreign policy and fixes the immense damage caused by his globalist predecessors. Paul’s bold efforts may help the U.S. bridge the gap with Iran and begin talks that will result in a deal that works for both nations.

“I Needed to do Something:” Army Soldier Stops Armed Gunman on Kansas/Missouri Bridge

A U.S. Army soldier driving across a bridge between Kansas and Missouri likely saved lives when he neutralized an armed, active shooter with his vehicle on Wednesday.

Leavenworth, Kansas Police Chief Patrick Kitchens said that Master Sergeant David Royer’s actions on the Centennial Bridge were “absolutely heroic.

Royer, who is stationed at Fort Leavenworth, recounted the incident during a press conference outside the installation on Thursday. He had been driving across the bridge when he saw a man firing a rifle at oncoming traffic in a random fashion. Police initially suspected that the man was engaging in road-rage style violence, but authorities now believe the unnamed man was indiscriminately firing upon vehicles crossing the bridge.

As the investigation unfolded, we learned this was an active shooter with multiple weapons on the bridge firing at cars with no particular association,” recounted the police chief.

I knew people’s lives were in danger. I needed to do something. My military training kicked in. So, I took action as I saw appropriate, and I just knew I had to do something,” stated Royer during his remarks at Leavenworth on Thursday.

Royer states that he rammed into the shooter with his truck, pinning the gunman under his vehicle. The man wasn’t killed, and Kansas authorities are expected to announce criminal charges against the suspect within a few days.

Multiple cars had been shot by the gunman, and one individual- also an active-duty soldier at Fort Leavenworth- was injured. Royer is comparing the incident to some of his military experiences in high-stress environments, including a service assignment to Guatanamo Bay earlier in his career.
