A Kentucky man who seriously injured Senator Rand Paul in a devastating 2017 assault is set to receive a serious prison sentence after a judge overturned a lenient 30-day prison term he had received for the attack on Monday.
Rene Boucher brutally tackled Senator Paul at his Bowling Green, Kentucky home in November 2017. The libertarian Republican Senator suffered fractured ribs and later had to have a piece of his lung removed as a result of lingering complications from the assault.
Paul’s attorneys had appealed a ruling in which Boucher got away with 30 days in prison for his violent assault, a mere slap on the wrist. Their successful appeal makes it far more likely Boucher will have to serve a real prison term.
Judge Jane Branch of the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals explained her reasoning in ordering Boucher to be resentenced. “Federal defendants with a criminal history category of I [the lowest possible level] who were convicted of assault received an average sentence of 26 months’ imprisonment and a median sentence of 21 months. We therefore VACATE Boucher’s sentence and REMAND for resentencing.”
Boucher, who was Paul’s neighbor at the time, claims the brutal assault was motivated over a dispute over a pile of leaves. But it’s known the Kentucky doctor was a staunch leftist with an intense dislike for Senator Paul’s conservative politics.
A two year prison sentence probably won’t be an equivalent to the suffering that Boucher’s brutal and arguably politically motivated ambush caused Senator Paul. Paul was seriously injured for about a year, and continues to suffer lingering complications.
But perhaps a real prison sentence will send a message to politically-motivated fiends who take their policy disagreements to a level where they’re inclined to brutally injure their own neighbors.
IT’S A START: Portland Rioter Arrested With Pipe Bomb Materials, Will Face Federal Charges
This merits federal prosecution.
Acting Deputy Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Ken Cuccinelli revealed that a rioter in Portland, Oregon was arrested with materials used to create a pipe bomb on Saturday night.
Cuccinelli shared an image of the rioter’s terrorist paraphernalia on his Twitter Sunday, announcing that the rioter would face federal criminal charges for his possession of the destructive device.

Customs and Border Patrol official Mark Morgan confirmed that the thus-unnamed rioter had been arrested on Sunday morning not only with pipe bomb paraphernalia, but a machete and a knife
Morgan staunchly rejected any description of Portland’s criminal rioters as protestors, making it clear that the riotous thugs had no right to attack federal law enforcement and terrorize the community. The rioters staged a siege of the Hatfield Federal Courthouse in Portland, vandalizing the federal building and coating it with graffiti.
Portland ANTIFA has staged some of the most vicious criminal riots and political terrorism in the country, having rioted in the city’s streets for what some officials have claimed to be 38 straight days. Reporter Andy Ngo has documented the terrorist group’s crimes, exposing them deploying laser devices in the direction of a police headquarters building to blind law enforcement.
Last night, violent protesters used lasers on police officers guarding the Justice Center in Portland while also pelting them with rocks, glass bottles, water balloons filled with paint, fireworks and more. #antifa #BlackLivesMatter #portlandriots pic.twitter.com/AX9Cc2eFL0

“We are doing disservice to peaceful lawful protestors when we call these individuals protestors. They’re not. They’re criminal thugs with an agenda.”
Rioting in downtown Portland by antifa. They came fully equipped with shields and explosive fireworks. Federal police (not @PortlandPolice) have used CS gas to forcibly disperse them. It’s working and antifa hate it. pic.twitter.com/MA8f3BRLzO

The Department of Justice is expected to announce criminal charges against the alleged bomb-wielding terrorist on Sunday, naming the criminal suspect.
