Last Sunday, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul said that he won’t support GOP congresswoman Liz Cheney and her endorsement of “endless wars” if she ends up running for Wyoming’s Senate seat.
Paul said on CNN that he’s backing Republican Cynthia Lummis, a former member of the House. Cheney, on the other hand, has stood strong in her belief that Paul’s push for non-interventionism “blames America first” and ends up helping terrorists during an interview on NBC.
This is part of an ongoing ideological scuffle between different factions within the GOP on the issue of foreign policy. Paul has played up Trump’s America First appeal which called for a more restrained foreign policy abroad.
The Kentucky Senator has tried to get Trump to live up to his “America First” platform and reduce U.S. military actions in countries like Afghanistan and Syria. However, other Senators like Lindsey Graham have advised Trump to take a more neoconservative approach to foreign policy, which involves the potential use of intervention.
Trump’s firing of neocon-friendly national security adviser John Bolton, which Paul praised, has had hawkish elected officials worried about future action with Iran.
Cheney is following in the footsteps of her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney, and wants to continue the same interventionist policies that the military-industrial complex loves.
This will likely be one of the first of many ideological scuffles within the GOP in the years to come.
NO MURDER CHARGES: Fired Detective Brett Hankinson Receives Indictment for Wanton Endangerment, No Officers are Charged for the Death of Breonna Taylor
On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.
Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.
Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.
The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.
Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order.
Given the indictment doesn’t match the BLM demands of murder charges for all officers involved, such precautionary measures are necessary to quell potential unrest coming from the Left. Since May, radical leftists have taken advantage of controversial police actions to tear up property and cause mayhem across the country. An incident like Taylor’s death is most assuredly being politicized by the Left and will likely fuel further disturbances across the nation.
Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
