Get The Popcorn: John McCain Accuses Rand Paul of Working For Vladimir Putin

Wednesday, March 15, 2017 13:33
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

People tend to think of the House of Representatives is where all of the “action” is, but sometimes things get very heated in the Senate. It’s no secret that John McCain of Arizona and Rand Paul of Kentucky are not the best of friends, but an objection by Paul on the floor of the Senate had McCain seeing red.

From The Washington Examiner:

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., on Wednesday accused Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., of “working for Vladimir Putin” after Paul blocked consideration of a treaty that would allow Montenegro into the United Nations.

McCain tried to call up the treaty and warned that anyone blocking it would be helping Russia maintain its influence over the small country across the Adriatic Sea from Italy.

“If there’s objection, you are achieving the objectives of Vladimir Putin,” McCain warned. “If they object, they are now carrying out the desires and ambitions of Vladimir Putin, and I do not say that lightly.”

Apparently, Rand Paul immediately objected and did not offer a reason for doing so. McCain did not hold back:

“The only conclusion you can draw when he walks away is he has no argument to be made,” he said.

“The senator from Kentucky is now working for Vladimir Putin,” McCain concluded.

Oof. That is rather….harsh. Though I think it is fair that Rand Paul explains himself. We’ll see how this progresses.

    John McCain is demented and senile and still dangerous to America….he hates Rand Paul’s new bill defunding ISIS:

    he Clintons are still sitting in the warmth of their home enjoying all their riches and being praised by all their Liberal Followers. And it is not just liberals who follow them. It is some Republican Traitors like John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Paul Ryan who still praise what the Clintons have done.

    The whole premise behind the takeover of countries and murder of their leaders is the method of madness by how Hillary Clinton operates. Oh, but she does not operate alone. She and Obama were a match made in hell!

    The U.S. government “regime change” schemes overseas that involve providing money, weapons, training, and other support to savage terror organizations was what Hillary Clinton has given her life to. Of course, aiding designated terror groups is already a serious crime, but the laws have not been enforced against federal officials involved in these war crimes. AND WHY NOT???

    This is how Hillary would do it:

    1. Enter target country under false pretenses.
    2. Threaten country to join her or die.
    3. Put together a rebel group from the Muslim Brotherhood to take down country, while killing populace, tearing down architecture, and leaving country in ruin.
    4. Funds rebels to fight with arms and machines paid for by the American taxpayer.
    5. All the while rebels share with ISIS their weapons.
    6. Lo and behold ISIS is being funded by American taxpayers, too, and supported by Obama and Clinton….oh, and John McCain.
    7. Leader of country is savagely murdered.
    8. Country’s riches, resources and land stolen by Obama and Clinton.
    9. Gas pipeline built.
    10. Citizens abused and trafficked.
    11. Country is left as void for terrorists to fill.

    H.R. 608 in the House, bans the provision of any assistance by the federal government to al-Qaeda, Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, and the Islamic State, sometimes known as ISIS, ISIL, or Daesh.

    The “Stop Arming Terrorists Act,” as it is being dubbed, would also prohibit official U.S. aid to any individual or group affiliated with, associated with, or cooperating with any of the proscribed terror organizations.

    Finally, the legislation bans any funds to state sponsors of those groups. Providing anything from cash and weapons to training and intelligence would be prohibited under the bill.

    Senator Paul, a leading constitutionalist Congressman, introduced the “Stop Arming Terrorists Act” last week in the Senate as S. 532.

    “One of the unintended consequences of nation-building and open-ended intervention is American funds and weapons benefiting those who hate us,” Senator Paul said in a statement announcing that the companion legislation to the House measure had been filed. “This legislation will strengthen our foreign policy, enhance our national security, and safeguard our resources.”

    Like his father, retired Congressman and GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul, Senator Paul has been a long time critic of the U.S. government’s illegal policies arming terrorist groups such as al-Qaeda.

    I hate to sound stupid, but I was not aware this was occurring until I discovered what Hillary Clinton and Obama were doing in Libya. I will never forget hearing Hillary say on the tube, “We came, we saw, he died.” She laughed at the gruesome death of Muammar Gaddafi. She and her Team had won, and nothing mattered more to Hillary than winning. Her followers continue to haunt America as they refuse to accept Donald Trump as the new President, thus again abusing the rights of the American citizens.

    Hillary has never paid a dime or a day for her crimes, and it honestly does not look like she will. Unless the honorable AG Jeff Sessions can take action against her, she will die never having spent a day paying for what she has done. However, I know what awaits her when she dies.

    Hillary is a follower of Saul Alinsky who taught his followers that the only thing that mattered was “power”…at any cost. The means justifies the end, and that end should be power. Oh, by the way, Obama also is a follower of Saul Alinsky. That fact provides us with some insight into the character of both Obama and Hillary Clinton.

    At this point the evidence of U.S. government support for terrorists is overwhelming, with President Trump going so far as to call Obama and Hillary Clinton co-founders of ISIS.
