Rand Paul

Sorry Libertarians, but I do not like being lied to or misled.  Therefore I must comment on this latest interview.  I hope to get back to exposing and mocking liberals progressives communists here soon!

Reason interviews Rand Paul:

My comments at YouTube:
Would have liked to hear how he would have responded to the MA17 shootdown. Libertarians criticize Dem and Rep actions, but have not yet said what they would do.

His reference to Eisenhower, Reagan and Bush Sr. is flawed - they all had a cold war/bipolar world.  They didn't have to deal with organized terror networks with access to WMDs.

Last - he wants to restrict the NSA, yet he was silent for over a month after Snowden came out.  It turns out, Rand was read-in to the NSA program like every other senator.  He knew about the domestic spying.
Unlike his father who I promised to never vote for, I will vote for Rand Paul if he becomes the Republican nominee in 2016. 

My question to Rand's fans: If Rand fails in the primaries, will you vote for the Republican nominee, or run some nameless pot-head under the Libertarian Party like you did in 2012?

(This is called tough love.  I will understand if you choose to stop visiting Ushanka.) 

Like I said, I'd rather be chronicling the failure that is Obama...

Word of the Day - Symbolism

Symbolism - the practice of representing things by symbols, or of investing things with a symbolic meaning or character.


Anybody Else Confused?

Exhibit A:
A medium-range (30 miles) radar-guided surface-to-air Buk missile takes out an airliner flying over Ukraine at 33,000 feet.
Exhibit B:
A small, crude, fire-and-forget, Qassam surface-to-surface artillery rocket with a 2 to 8 mile range is fired in the direction of the Tel Aviv airport.  It does not hit the airport property and there is no damage.
 Now, enter the Twilight Zone....

Take a guess where flights from the US are cancelled.

The administration says cancelling flights to Israel is in the interest of safety.

These two recent events give us the rare opportunity to see each political party stand for what they believe in.

Republican Response:  We can only assume, but here is what I think a Reagan would do.  Out of both safety and a need to hold Russia accountable for giving Buk missiles to people who might use them against airliners, I see Reagan cancelling all direct US flights into and out of Russia.   I would expect Reagan to confirm flight safety into Israel, and follow the advice he'd receive.

Democrat Response:  Obama will never place serious sanctions on Russia because a) he fears Russia and b) it is an opportunity to bring the US down a notch in foreign affairs.  Obama's FAA has cancelled all flights to Israel.

Libertarian Response:  I've asked for this from Ushanka's Libertarian readers but have not received a response. They've demanded an investigation into the Ukraine event, so I must assume President Ron Paul would have done the same.  I haven't seen any Libertarians comment about the cancelled flights into Israel, so I assume they are in agreement with Obama.

Democrat vs. Libertarian: My Choice

Why I will always prefer the Democrat Party nominee over the Libertarian Party nominee, and why I don't do drugs:

Time:  Ron Paul Says U.S. May Share Responsibility for Malaysia Airlines Plane Crash
He raises the possibility that the U.S. may be using the crash to start a war against Putin.
Former Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul claimed Sunday that the U.S. and European Union may share responsibility for the downing of a Malaysia Airlines plane over Ukraine last week.

Democrats Obama and John Kerry guarantee us two very important things: 
1) Other than using MA17 as a distraction from their failed domestic policies, they will do nothing on the foreign policy front that would lead to war, and
2) They are incapable of diverting blame from Putin and Putin's thugs.
What would a President Ron Paul have done after the MA17 shootdown?

UPDATED 7.22.14, 16 hours later:

"False Flag" mentioned by the Alex Jones show.

I don't know who to feel more sympathy for.  Paulbots who are not embarrassed by Ron Paul's statements, the Alex Jones fan base lured by his 24/7 conspiracy noise, or the American blacks who've re-enslaved themselves under the Democrat Party.  In all cases, interestingly, both victim groups are told what to think and how smart they are by their masters.

I could be wrong, but I'm still attached to the story that a) thugs stealing Ukrainian property on behalf of Russia b) receive Russian military aid to steal Ukrainian property including heave anti-aircraft weapons designed to hit planes at 33,000 feet, and c) either on a whim or an order from their supplier, shoot down an airliner, committing an act of war.

Remember, this isn't Russia's first rodeo.

Keep your conspiracy theories and other noise to yourself.  If you want to leave a comment, please answer my question: 
What would a President Ron Paul have done after the MA17 shootdown?
Oh, and don't smoke crack.

UPDATED 30 minutes later:

Stefan Molyneux rushes to Ron Paul's defense.  My comments at his YouTube video:
Why not walk through the connections of Russia, the Russian thugs fighting in Ukraine, and the Russian heavy anti-aircraft weapons?  Why not talk about the single day between sanctions on Russia and the MA17 shoot down?

Ron Paul's comments were unprofessional. He is lucky to have a fan base that will shout down other ideas.

I'm not part of a lynch mob.  Russia, directly or indirectly, shot down an airliner.  They've done it before and will do it again if not held accountable.

My head hurts.

Fool Me For 5 Years, Shame On Me...

Google News:

 Yes.  The same Obama who has shown no 'Serious Concern' for:
The passengers, families and significance of Malaysia Flight 17,
Rockets fired into an ally's cities,
A jailed Marine in Mexico,
A collapsing Iraq,
A rogue Russia,
An American open border,
40 shot, and 4 killed, in his home town.
(I am purposely limiting the list to just the past week's events.)

Our Dear Leader's magic isn't working anymore...


Of the topics above, only Israel's 'heavy handedness' against Hamas will be mentioned by the dear leader or one of his commissars.

He Will Trade Your Gun For His Smug

Watch as the liberal progressive communist is lured into an anti-constitutional stupor by his own smugness.

If you need more than ten in a clip, you need more than ten in a clip for one reason: you think the federal government's coming to take your crops, you know, to take your cows, or whatever and you want more than ten because you want to kill US Soldiers who come to your door.

This clip (pun intended) isn't just about gun-control.  Notice, now, that the topic of US soldiers coming to your personal residence is, by context, acceptable. 

They haven't given up their quest to disarm you.  They are just re-grouping.

World Policeman? Nyet.

U-2 - May 1, 1960
KAL902 - April 20, 1978
KAL007 - September 1, 1983
TU154 - April 10, 2010
MA17 - July 17, 2014

July 16, 2014 - CNN:  Obama imposes new sanctions on Russia over Ukraine
July 17, 2014 - FoxNews:  Smoking gun? Intercepted calls point finger at Russian separatists in jet downing

Today, the professional journalists in the MSM are linking the missile to the sanctions asking why the plane flew over Ukraine.

The families have no one to turn to for this act of war and crime against humanity.

The US is now officially impotent.

We might be the world's policeman...  But we're on break.

 Edmund Burke:
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

How come Obama and Putin don't get along, when they have so much in common:
