In a shock move, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has endorsed Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate in New Mexico over the Republican candidate, Mick Rich. Johnson is the former Governor of New Mexico, and ran for president as a Libertarian in both 2012 and 2016.
While Johnson and Paul do align on fiscal and privacy issues, that’s where the similarities seem to end. When looking at past public statements, and his record as Governor of New Mexico, it is clear that Johnson is a pro-abortion, open-borders supporting globalist who is clueless on most issues, especially foreign policy.
Throughout his entire career, Johnson has been consistently opposed abortion restrictions. While he has always been opposed to late term abortion, he has still contended it’s a state’s rights issue. If elected to the U.S. Senate that means he would be unlikely to support any pro-life measures.
For that reason alone Sen. Paul’s endorsement seems confusing, especially with his timing. Just last week, while fighting to defund Planned Parenthood he questioned whether his Republican colleagues are really pro-life. With his endorsement of Johnson, the same could be asked of him.
On the issue of immigration, Johnson goes even further than even many Democrats in support for open borders. In an interview with Townhall, Johnson ranted with the ferocity of a social-justice lunatic over the use of the term “illegal immigrant,” calling it “incendiary.” He also expressed his full support for open borders, stating:
“My vision of the border with Mexico is that a truck from the United States going into Mexico and a truck coming from Mexico into the United States will pass each other at the border going 60 miles an hour. Yes, we should have open borders.”
But perhaps the most troubling of the reasons Paul purports to support Johnson is his belief that he will be a leader for “common sense foreign policy is sorely needed in the United States Senate.”
While it is true that Johnson claims to support a more non-interventionist foreign policy, he has proven that he doesn’t understand foreign policy and can be easily persuaded away from his proclaimed principles. In 2012, almost certainly after watching the debunked “Kony 2012” video, he came out in support of sending U.S. troops to Uganda to fight child soldiers in the Lords Resistance Army.
On top of that, Johnson has been extremely critical of President Trump. After all, he did challenge Trump as a Libertarian during the 2016 election. Johnson has also gone so far as to call Trump a “p***y.”
It is not clear if this endorsement will create a rift in the relationship between Paul and President Trump. In recent months, Paul has made great strides towards supporting Trump on many important issues, and has forged a strong relationship with him.
Overall, this is sure to be an extremely disappointing moment for any Trump supporter who had faith in Rand Paul.

TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District
It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”
Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.
Her lawlessness, ignorance and corruption have gone on for too long!
— DeAnna for Congress🇺🇸vs Nancy (@DeAnna4Congress) February 6, 2020
The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.
Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”
“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”
This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
