Rand Paul Calls for Russia Hoax Perpetrators in the Obama Administration to be Investigated

Published

on

Senator Rand Paul has called for an investigation into Obama officials who spread the Trump-Russia collusion hoax.

Paul has followed in the footsteps of Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham requesting an investigation into Obama-era officials who were responsible for pushing the costly, irresponsible conspiracy theory.

Reports revealed that the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid Fusion GPS to produce a dossier alleging the existence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

However, a number of Obama administration officials were also in on the action.

The co-founder of Fusion GPS, Glenn Simpson and the author of the dossier, ex-MI6 agenda Christopher Steele, sent the dossier to several Obama officials at the State Department, Justice Department, the FBI, and members of the media.

A report from the New York Times indicated that former FBI Director James Comey discussed with White House officials, who refused to be named, about how to proceed with the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 elections. Comey claimed that the “president replied that going public would play right into Russia’s hands by sowing doubts about the election’s legitimacy.”

Following the 2016 elections, Comey handed the dossier over to President-elect Trump. However, when Comey briefed the dossier to Trump, it was abruptly leaked to CNN.  Obama’s Director of National Intellgience James Clapper was the primary suspect behind the leak.

When CNN reported on the briefing, Buzz later published the full version of the dossier.

But the involvement of Obama-era officials did not end there. Former and current officials anonymously leaked intelligence and other material to the media suggesting a conspiracy between Trump campaign officials and Russia.

The recent Mueller Report has effectively put an end to all of the Trump-Russia collusion narrative.

Rand Paul is now one of the leaders spearheading a move to bring Obama officials to justice for their apparent overreach.

This is a significant bounce back from Paul’s latest vote against Trump’s emergency order measure. A move which was criticized by the hosts of the Liberty Conservative Podcast, Shane Trejo and Rocco Lucente,  as a strategic misstep.

Nevertheless, the Kentucky Senator has proven to be a reliable opponent of the entrenched military-industrial complex in Washington D.C.  and recently introduced a withdrawal bill of his own.  Paul has stood by President Trump’s decision to withdraw troops from Afghanistan and Syria despite Senate interventionists doing everything they can to block it.

Border vote notwithstanding, Rand Paul continues to be a reliable advocate of President Trump’s America First agenda.

Did Bernie Sanders Just Endorse a Neocon Regime Change Foreign Policy?

Published

on

Is Bernie Sanders the anti-war candidate that many non-interventionists are making him out to be?

Journalists Jacob Crosse and Barry Grey presented some interesting observations about Sanders’ foreign policy views.

Sanders criticized the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani in January and also stressed his opposition to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

During the Iowa presidential debate, Sanders loudly boasted, “I not only voted against that war, I helped lead the effort against that war.”

However, Sanders changed his tune when chatting with the New York Times.

The answers the Sanders campaign gave the Times showed its flexibility when it comes to foreign policy.

In other words, the Sanders campaign signaled to the military and intelligence apparatus that Sanders won’t present a threat to their interests and may actually carry out their interventionist agenda.

One question in the survey that the Times sent the Sanders campaign stuck out above the rest.

The third survey question asked, “Would you consider military force to pre-empt an Iranian or North Korean nuclear or missile test?”

The Sanders campaign responded, “Yes.”

Based on this response, Sanders’ is signaling that he’s willing to continue Bush-era policies of “preemptive war.”

Like Obama, Sanders’ opposition to the Iraq War was a matter of politics rather than a principled opposition to regime change wars.

His campaign was also asked, “Would you consider military force for a humanitarian intervention?”

Sanders responded, “Yes.”

Some of the wars that the U.S. carried out in the name of “human rights” have been the Bosnian war and the bombing of Serbia in the 1990s along with the aerial campaign against Libya in 2011 and the Civil War launched in Syria.

All in all, Sanders’ pro-peace/non-interventionist image is at best window dressing.

Under a Sanders presidency, the interventionist status quo will likely stay in place.
