Rand Paul Suggests Lie Detector Tests to Find Anonymous Op-Ed Author

Published

on

A U.S. Senator suggested Thursday that President Donald J. Trump may be justified in using lie detector tests to find out who wrote the anonymous op-ed published in the New York Times Wednesday.

“It’s not unprecedented for people with security clearances to be asked whether or not they’re revealing things against the law under oath and also by lie detector,” Paul said. “We need to get to the bottom of it.”

Paul argued that it is standard procedure to use lie detectors on high level law enforcement and intelligence officials with security clearances.

“We use the lie-detector test routinely for CIA agents and FBI agents,” he said. “If you have a security clearance in the White House, I think it would be acceptable to use a lie detector test and ask people whether or not they’re talking to the media against the policy of the White House.”

The anonymous op-ed rocked the White House Wednesday evening.

Big League Politics reported:

An alleged “senior official in the Trump administration” wrote an anonymous op-ed piece in the New York Times Wednesday claiming to be part of the “resistance” which contained a thinly veiled threat towards President Donald J. Trump.

“Given the instability many witnessed, there were early whispers within the cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment, which would start a complex process for removing the president. But no one wanted to precipitate a constitutional crisis. So we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until — one way or another — it’s over,” the author said.

One way or another? Is a high level Trump administrator threatening the life of the President?

“The dilemma — which he does not fully grasp — is that many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations,” said the author of the piece.

Trump blasted the author of the piece on Twitter.

“Does the so-called ‘Senior Administration Official’ really exist, or is it just the Failing New York Times with another phony source? If the GUTLESS anonymous person does indeed exist, the Times must, for National Security purposes, turn him/her over to government at once!” he said.

Pelosi is Emboldened by Coronavirus Bailout, Vows to Dupe Republicans Harder Next Time

The Democrats’ socialist agenda is winning big during the coronavirus panic.

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pulled the wool over the eyes of President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans with last week’s $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package. The disaster relief money was earmarked for many liberal pet projects, and Pelosi aims to do the same thing for the next round of bailouts.

She said on Monday that House Democrats are already preparing another massive stimulus bill, using the coronavirus pandemic to enact more socialism. She is likely to include massive infrastructure spending and serious government intervention into the health care markets in the upcoming legislation.

“Our first bills were about addressing the emergency. The third bill was about mitigation. The fourth bill would be about recovery. Emergency, mitigation, recovery,” Pelosi said during a conference call.

“I think our country is united in not only wanting to address our immediate needs — emergency, mitigation, and the assault on our lives and livelihoods — but also, how we recover in a very positive way,” she added.

Republican leaders are up in arms about how Pelosi is exploiting a crisis to get her partisan agenda muscled through Congress, but it is unclear if they have the courage to actually stop her.

“They’re approaching it — it seems like — as an opportunity to pass their political and ideological agenda. We’re approaching it as, ‘How do we protect the public health and our economy?’ And those are pretty divergent goals,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said.

Pelosi is eager to exploit the coronavirus crisis quickly and use the panic and fear in the public as an excuse to massively increase government spending and control.

“I do think that it is really important that as soon as we are here, we are ready to pass legislation,” she said.

President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans did Pelosi’s bidding when they moved forward a $2 trillion bailout bill that included funding for liberal policy goals that had nothing to do with the coronavirus.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) sounded the alarm over the sham and attempted to get Congress to actually deliberate and vote on the bill. It instead passed on a voice vote with most legislators sequestered away from Washington D.C.

Massie’s principled stand against Pelosi’s profligate spending bill earned him a tongue lashing from President Trump, who now wants Massie replaced in Congress because he’s too conservative.

With no Republicans seemingly willing to stand up against Pelosi, there will likely be more bailout socialism on the way as the Democrats use coronavirus for their far-left power grabs.
