First of all, I have to make it clear that I am not a Rand Paul supporter.
However, I feel that I have to speak out, in his defense, of how he is being portrayed in the media as of late. It is quite ridiculous that he his harsh on women reporters/journalists.
Here, Sen. Dr. Rand Paul is criticized for ‘shooting’ the interviewer, however, if you will note, she did NOT give him a question, she made a statement and he wanted to correct the statement. At the end of the interview, he was correct in how the media handles these things. They need to come with questions that matter about the voting records, the bills, or the campaigns. What she was doing was not right and it is exactly how ALL journalists and TV hosts are.If it were Hillary Clinton being interviewed in this same way, and she responded in the same way, the outcome would be totally different.
Now here he is, criticized for correcting this interviewer for how she runs through a list at rapid fire, and he is trying to stop her because she is editorializing and not asking questions. If she is going to INTERVIEW someone, she should ASK questions. He has every right to stop the interview to be able to get a chance to ANSWER questions. He has done nothing wrong here. Again I say, if it were Hillary Clinton that were interviewed in the same way, and she responded in the same way, the outcome would be totally different.
Greta is on the ball here as well! This video is only 3:35. There are so many emails that needed responses regarding to the location of Ambassador Chris Stevens. He also had been asking for U.S. Security as it was becoming more hostile and he asked for help and received NO ANSWER. I watched the men that went it regardless of the ‘stand down order’ that has been denounced now. Had they been allowed to go in earlier, they feel they would have been able to secure the building and requesting helicopter rescue of the Ambassador. Too many lies and very little truth from then Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, who dared to blame it on a video and it had nothing to do with the video.

This was taken from an email that I get every day. I usually don’t pay much attention to it but this one caught my eye. What did she have to hide? Why did she use her personal email account instead of the government one that is archived? She has MUCH to answer for, but the big question is WILL SHE? ~ nanarhonda ~ copyright 2015
Clinton used personal email while Secretary of State
Hillary Rodham Clinton used a personal email account during her time as secretary of state, rather than a government-issued email address, potentially hampering efforts to archive official government documents required by law.
Clinton’s office said nothing was illegal or improper about her use of the non-government account and that she believed her business emails to State Department and other .gov accounts would be archived in accordance with government rules.
“Like secretaries of state before her, she used her own email account when engaging with any department officials,” Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said. “For government business, she emailed them on their department accounts, with every expectation they would be retained. When the department asked former secretaries last year for help ensuring their emails were in fact retained, we immediately said ‘yes.’”
I have questions too. It doesn’t matter what side of the “political fence” you are on either, the questions still remain. It doesn’t matter which media outlet you watch either. Each reporter regurgitates the same reports so you are being inundated with the same message. Thanks to lobotero for posting this! I trust his judgement and his inquiry… I hope that you will as well! ~ nanarhonda
With all the news about the atrocities that are committed by ISIS in Iraq and Syria and now in Libya with the execution of those prisoners on a beach…….and then there are reports of a possibility of ISIS harvesting organs from prisoners, selling ancient artifacts and the selling of captured women and they, ISIS keeps expanding the depth of their depravity……brings me to ask a single question…….How far will we go to ‘defeat’ ISIS?….
I know we have been told by numerous admin big shots that we will pursue and defeat ISIS……good propaganda but how far will we actually go?
I mean the influence of ISIS keeps growing and growing at an alarming rate……if it continues is the US willing to pursue and engage them any where they may be operating? Apparently the government is willing but what about the people?
This is an email that I received and I thought I would share with all of you since this came AFTER my questions and his responses (which I blogged about as well)) and he still doesn’t get it! I told him on the messages that I left on his answering service in DC that because of HIM, I would no longer be voting GOP. What does it take to get through to this man? Of course, I unsubscribed after I copied and pasted this so I could share it with you. Keep in mind, Chairman Reince Priebus lives literally a half mile away from me. Congressman Paul Ryan is the entire reason I will never vote GOP again! These are people that have been part of my voting influence for years. Not anymore! I now am interested in The Constitution Party (www.constitutionparty.com) and even if I have to write in a candidate, its better than voting for someone that I have to compromise my own values for! Just wanted to let you know why I was posting this email!
It was an honor to be asked by Chairman Priebus to chair the Presidential Trust for the Republican National Committee, especially during such a transformational time for our Party.
Rhonda, the Presidential Trust is the most important resource our Party will have in the 2016 election. This fund will be used by the RNC to provide direct support to our Party’s eventual presidential nominee.
Thank you to Lorra for posting this on her site for us!
Surprise! You uninsured have until February 15th to sign up or pay fines. Healthcare coverage that is a TAX, how unreal is that? At what point will Capital Hill totally defund Obama Care/ ACA and leave well enough alone? The Government was never meant to be the “savior” of the people. The government has lost its way.
Lord, I pray that it finds its way back soon and the American will once again Bless You, unite the fabric of the country which is the family, and I thank You Lord for Lorra being a willing vessel for Your glory, in Jesus’ Name, Amen… and all that agree, say… amen!
Ladies and gentlemen….gather around! I’m about to give you something extraordinarily special. It’s the gift that keeps on giving long after it should have died….but it will NEVER die…as long as there is a liberal in our midst who wakes up every single day believing that government is the end all, be all answer to our problems. As long as somebody out there in the fruited plain truly believes in their heart of hearts that business and corporations are evil and exist just to take advantage of the poor and the down trodden. As long as somebody in government has a breath with which to promote the Republican myth that government is best when it’s smaller, and leave the trouble shooting to private enterprise, where they can make money from it, we are going to be enjoying the fruits of that wonderous legal legacy known…
This happens in the U.S. as well, don’t kid yourself.As a former foster parent in our government’s system, I know all to well how it works; or better put, how it doesn’t work for the children it is supposed to be serving. This may be from another country… but make no mistake… it is already here and is active and it’s only going to get worse as the government feels they can do a better job of rearing your child than you can!
