Senator Rand Paul delivered arguments to put restrictions and conditions on monetary aid to foreign countries moments before the Senate voted to continue those same policies without any restrictions.

 

Brevard Times has more along with the vote tally:

Rubio, Nelson Vote For Foreign Aid To Libya, Pakistan, Egypt

Sen. Paul’s bill, S. 3576, called for a prohibition of U.S. aid funds to the governments of Egypt, Libya and Pakistan contingent upon the release to U.S. authorities the aggressors who attacked our embassy and consulate in Egypt and Libya, respectively, and the release of Dr. Shakil Afridi, currently held by the Pakistani government.

 

“In no way should the United States government be sending money to governments who are not our ally, who blatantly do not respect our country, and who work to compromise the safety of our allies and citizens abroad. I am pleased that the Senate leadership has listened to my pleas for an end to this and have agreed to debate and vote on this pressing issue,” Sen. Paul said.

 

Senators Bill Nelson (D-FL) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) both voted for continued foreign aid to those mid-east countries.  The total U.S. foreign aid given to Pakistan, Libya and Egypt equals roughly $4 billion per year.

If he’s repeating the same lines as 2008, then isn’t he running against himself? Isn’t he admitting he’s done nothing to fix the problems he claims to have inherited or that his policies aren’t working?

The corruption in the Republican Party can no longer be ignored. I recieved a message today and a link to the video evidence from Heidi Thiess concerning the Republican Rules Committee fight that occurred during the first days of the recent RNC convention:

Calling all Conservatives: watch this UPDATE ON REPUBLICAN FLOOR FIGHT. The real story is getting out. Please help spread the word. Have you seen this video of Boehner’s SCRIPTED response to the floor vote? Unfettered, incontrovertible corruption! Please help share his video everywhere because folks still don’t understand the impact of these changes nor the corruption that the RNC and top Republican officials engaged in to shove this down our throats.

The bottom line: these rules would have crushed Reagan in ’76 and if left unchanged mean we’ll never get a conservative choice (like a Reagan) again. We must fight back!

Watch the TelePrompter that PROVES corruption:

Thanks to Heidi and to Ben Swann for following this story.

Disturbing budget news from Government Gone Wild.

 

 

Regular readers of this site probably know what I think. What about you? Fear mongering or truth?

This morning, presidential hopeful Mitt Romney announced what some are calling a bold choice in his pick of House Budget Committee Chair, Representative Paul Ryan (R – WI) as his Vice Presidential running mate. Rep. Ryan, you may recall from 2008 and again in 2010, proposed the comprehensive Roadmap for America’s Future, as it became clearer the Obama administration’s intentions were to tax and spend our way into debt oblivion.

After being chosen to chair the Budget Committee, Rep. Ryan introduced the Path to Prosperity, which further solidified his position as the person who could articulate the problems facing our nation and offer common sense solutions to fix them. Here is a playlist of the three short videos laying out that plan.

AS one can imagine, there is no shortage of commentary on the internet. Here’s a sampling:

This was a bold choice, far more bold than I expected. My first reaction when I heard the news was one of deep ambivalence, drawn naturally from knowing how the Obama campaign and media would distort Ryan and his budget proposals.

The nation now is faced with a stark choice, economic freedom and solvency or creeping socialism. It’s a choice we are not often willing to put to the electorate in such stark contrasts, but it was the choice long before Ryan was selected.

Ryan puts the national debt front and center in the election, on par with or maybe even ahead of jobs. This is a winner of an issue, it’s what motivated people in 2010, and it will cause huge turnout for Romney-Ryan.  Fear not.

David Burge, aka: Iowahawk astutely points out the contrast Romney establishes with his choice of Paul Ryan:

Steve at Motor City Times has a few videos of Rep. Ryan in action and asks:

I wonder how “Plugs” Biden is feeling this morning, with the October 11th VP debate looming?

Heh, good question, Steve.

 

Right Hand Man at Sentry Journal says:

YES!

…Ryan is going to be attacked like he’s never been attacked before.  For the democrats, this is just adding a granny killer to the already wife-killing Romney ticket.  For this reason, I feel for Ryan and his family.

If there is someone who is able to rise above the nonsense, however, it is Ryan.  He talks numbers like a savant but is able to do it eloquently and with charm, never embellishing in distractions and insults.  He’s forceful but not overbearing, he’s willing to challenge the President and he’s equipped to do so…

 

Romney shuns “safe” Portman pick and goes with Rep. Paul Ryan – Conservative Hideout 2.0.

I think Paul Ryan is a great choice, it will allow Romney to have Ryan tackle the budget process while he focuses on job-creation for the remainder of the campaign.

Rightly said, Matt.  I think it also sets Ryan up to be a great choice for president should Romney win the election and serve two terms. We’re going to need a steady hand at the wheel for many years to steer US out of the fiscal maelstrom that years of gross over-spending has brought us into.

Somehow I take great pleasure in linking MSNBS and their announcement. Mainly be cause, let’s face it, the heads of Maddow, Schultz, Sahrpton, O’Donnell, Matthews, and the rest will be exploding. I can see them now, hyperventilating, possibly foaming at the mouth, as they look for ways to demonize Ryan.

Smear campaign? The Other McCain isn’t surprised. New Democrat Campaign Message: Grandma, Cliff, Some Assembly Required

Members of the Democrat-Media Complex like Charles Pierce of Esquire and James Fallows of the Atlantic are already registering their disdain of Paul Ryan, and the Democrats are busy e-mailing their massive oppo-research PDF dossier to reporters, so the media attacks on Ryan are pre-scripted dictation from the DNC research department.

This is predictable, and is the best argument for picking a conservative like Ryan: No matter whom Romney had chosen, the Democrats would have demonized the GOP running mate as a Jekyll-and-Hyde combination of Dick Cheney and Martin Bormann.

 

WyBlog — Liberals are cryin’ because Romney picked Ryan.

Paul Ryan, granny-starver:

Make no mistake. In his decision to make Paul Ryan, the zombie-eyed granny-starver from Wisconsin, his running mate, Romney finally surrendered the tattered remnants of his soul not only to the extreme base of his party, but also to extremist economic policies, and to an extremist view of the country he seeks to lead.

Representative Ryan has stood athwart Obama’s ill-conceived plans time and again, weathering all manner of slander and malignment from our president and his surrogates without falter. In the opinion of this commentator, Chairman Ryan is an excellent choice for Vice President and acknowledges the difficult decisions facing our nation. With the Ryan pick, Romney makes a clear statement that he will tackle those decisions head on and he’s chosen a man notably well equipped to handle the challenge.

Earlier this week, an old friend reminded me of this band from the eighties/nineties called World Party. Karl Wallinger was the crux of the thing as I recall and played most of the instruments on the studio versions of the songs. He’s also a former member of the neo(?) Celtic band The Waterboys.

Seeing World Party and Jelllyfish in Austin along with a thousand of my closest friends ranks up in my top three favorite shows. Good schtuff, that
