The Senate recently passed a symbolic resolution Monday rebuking President Trump’s withdrawal of military forces from Syria, and Rand Paul rose on the Senate floor in opposition to make the case for an America First foreign policy.
The resolution, intended to embarrass the President and place foreign policy strategy in the Senate away from its place in the executive branch, was said to have been orchestrated by Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. It passed the Senate overwhelmingly, 70-26.
It seems to have been inspired by the departure of former Defense Secretary James Mattis, who opposed the Trump administration’s stated policy of withdrawal from Syria and potentially Afghanistan from within. Mattis finally resigned when Trump ordered the U.S military to begin withdrawal from the troubled Middle Eastern nation.
The Kentucky Senator, perhaps one of the sole legislators in the chamber who opposes a policy of eternal war and nation building, eviscerated Senate globalists who seek to keep American forces in Syria indefinitely.
Paul broke down the pointlessness and waste of an American foreign policy that sought to use the military in order to install democratic political institutions in distant Middle Eastern countries with no tradition of western-style democratic systems.
“I’m for replacing [the resolution] completely and saying to President Trump, we think you’re doing a great job, and thank goodness for being bold enough to say it’s time to start thinking about America First.”
YUGE: DHS Creating Statue Defense Task Force to Defend National Heritage Against Leftist Thuggery
Finally getting serious?
The Department of Homeland Security has created a law enforcement task force to prevent the destruction and vandalism of statues and monuments commemorating the heritage and history of the United States. The task force was announced in a statement from Acting Secretary Chad Wolf on Wednesday.
“DHS is answering the President’s call to use our law enforcement personnel across the country to protect our historic landmarks,” said Wolf. “We won’t stand idly by while violent anarchists and rioters seek not only to vandalize and destroy the symbols of our nation, but to disrupt law and order and sow chaos in our communities.”
A lackadaisical federal response to the rounds of statue destruction and cultural vandalism has enabled left-wing rioters to destroy statues with impunity. Only recently did federal authorities begin to signal that they intent to start seriously punishing criminal suspects who destroy images of Presidents and great American men.
The Department of Justice announced late last week that four men suspected in a failed vandalism attempt targeting the statue of former President Andrew Jackson in Washington DC’s Lafayette Square have been indicted on federal charges of destruction of federal property.
President Donald Trump signed an executive order late last month mandating that federal prosecutors assign stricter penalties to left-wing cultural criminals seeking to destroy statues and images commemorating the national heritage of the United States.

It’s likely that when the punks of ANTIFA realize that they’ll stand to spend years in federal prison for criminal acts of vandalism targeting American heritage, they’ll back down into the cracks of society from whence they came.
