Senator Rand Paul Speaks for First Time Since Serious Lung Surgery…

Senator Rand Paul had to undergo recent lung surgery as an outcome of an attack by a violent member of the Democrat resistance in 2017.  In his first interview since the surgery Senator Paul discusses his ongoing recovery and the continued expressions of violence from the political left.

      The Boss, well everyone should have someone who ticks them off because that is part of our Republic of freedom and rights. If we all thought the same, did the same, we would wind up looking all the same. Heck, we know a lot of people do not like the way Trump talks. So what. Express what you feel you can do is a good thing. If we don’t like it, so what? For sure I feel confident that many of us don’t like what others say or what we say, but the bottom line is we can say it.

  4. I feel sorry he was injured. I still do not like him because, imho, he is NOT a team player supporting PDJT and the MAGA agenda. Perhaps, if he swallowed his pride for a bit and stood-up for what, again imho, is right and best for the United States, I would have sympathy for the man. Otherwise, he’s on his own. America is 1st – Senator Paul is not.

    I hope he is ok but I don’t appreciate him supporting the red flag law. He says he does support it but only with extreme due process. What he and others don’t understand is that due process takes money and lawyers that most of us can’t afford and I do expect liberals to point fingers at conservatives and abuse this law if it passes.

      I agree. One of many things most nice-people conservatives don’t get is that the modern left has ZERO respect for rule of law and even less for its constraint by constitution. Law and constitution are weapons to be wield against their enemies when convenient and irrelevancies to be ignored when inconvenient. If you give them an inch, they will take 10,000 miles. Conservatives supporting any red flag law put the ‘stupid’ into ‘party of stupid’. They WILL be abused, not might, WILL be abused, openly and as frequently as the marxist-globalists deem necessary.

        Becky, they would definitely you and me with this Red Flag garbage because they don’t like up so why not go after us illegally. What I would like to see is again opening institutions for those with some mental problems as not possible for a parent or parents to completely care for any child or children who need real help mentally whether they are or are not possible dangerous people. When they closed down the institutions that meant dumping those who needed help or more help were on their own and incompetent. Possibly they were made angry to have no “help and home” and decided to get revenge. Difficult to be in any one person’s mind, but to me this is what we need and help them as we did before. Many times as children need help for many reasons and yet are expected to attend school and upset the classroom and no one gets educated. I have seen this way too many times.

          ^^^ THIS ^^^
          The maniac who threw little Landen over the balcony in Minneapolis has been disturbed for a long time and his sister had been trying to get help for him. She got nowhere with her efforts, although she clearly knew that her brother was a risk to himself and others.
          One of the problems is exploitation of the mentally ill when they are confined to institutions. Another problem is that not many people want to guard the mentally ill, it is dangerous and sometimes dirty work (as in feces smeared around, or other anomalies). Generally speaking, people don’t want to pay the people who have to watch over the mentally ill.
          If you are willing and able, please go sign up with one of the agencies that house and protect our mentally ill in subsidized homes. And be aware that what is taught in college Sociology classes (“the mentally ill are not dangerous”) is only true when it is true… don’t turn your back on people who are delusional. They can’t help what they do.

The Senator has had a tough go since his radical Democratic physician neighbor attacked him from behind and caused so many physical injuries. I am glad Senator Paul is recovering with help from his Doctors, nurses and his loyal wife.
      His attacker needs to spend time in the slammer. What a hateful Democrat! Unfortunately there are many like him.

      I read an interview with him where he said he, too, was forced into Obamacare, but I suspect he also pays out of pocket. I remember he shopped around and had an attack-related hernia repaired at a private clinic in Canada because they had good prices and outcomes. Of all the so-called conservatives in the Senate, Rand Paul actually walks the walk.

        That private clinic in Canada is AMAZING
        Its the SHOULDICE repair clinic

        They really don’t use any mesh (that has been causing problems all over the world) in 98% of cases.
        Instead they cobble together the anatomical layers
        The surgery is done by GPs/generalists who specifically trained for this.
        Thats all they do
        And mostly under local anesthetic
        I think they are amazing.

        Yes a very well known Hernia Clinic in Toronto, that many for all walks of life go to. My neighbor did as well, nothing but high praise. The doctors that formed this clinic are making a fortune as OHIP (Ontario Health Plan) does not cover anyone going there. Smart doctors they saw, and see anything the government is involved with is pure s….t. There are many private clinics that have reared their heads.

      Really? Did you watch the interview? He hadn’t had a conversation with the man in 10 years. Rand Paul was a presidential contender (and still could be in the future) and some whacko attacks him; that has nothing to do with our nation? Also, it was nice to hear about his book and have the stories out there about the attack debunked.

    The GOP was way more upset about Ron Paul’s moderate success in the 2012 primaries than they let on – he started people re-thinking the wars. NPR, in particular but all the MSM really, hated Ron Paul in the same way the democrats hate Tulsi. His candidacy was an embarrassment to Bush and it cleared some space for PT to follow 4 yrs later …

    That was about the time Koch brothers started pouring millions into CATO and polluting the far-right corner of the GOP. They cleverly married small government purists and fanatics (who take it to the extreme, believing in no borders) into the overlapping paleoconservative wing (Pat Buchanan for ex). In one decade, they have diluted the Libertarian Party into a “pro-immigration” lobbying group full of complete leftie lunatics.

    Ron Paul didn’t talk a lot about social conservatism, but he now has more in common with Pat Buchanan than the Libertarian Party.

    All the best to Rand and Kelley Paul and a full recovery for Rand with no other problems associated with the injury. 30 days for attacking “a GOP” Senator. I wonder what the Judge doles out if it’s a Dem Senator that’s attacked.

    Exposing socialism or “The Case Against…” it and how it always ends up stripping citizens of their freedom and ruins economies is a well timed book given the rising numbers of low information socialist dreamers today.

    Very disturbed after watching this interview and reading some of the CTH responses to this post. What does it matter whether Senator Rand supports President Trump? For crying out loud, he’s a human being that has been maimed and injured by a deranged forking neighbor who basically gets to walk for his crime. Surgery, at least for myself, would be the VERY LAST RESORT for a healing outcome.
    Adding insult to his real injury, to hear that a hoard of “so called humans” descended on him as if in a swarm of mad hornets to wish him ILL just blows my mind.
    Am working through my thinking re social media (not a participant thank you, did enough time behind the lines to know better).
    Am wondering whether these are these real people who sent ill wishes to Senator Rand? Or is it a generated algorithm without a persona, face or name spewing this stuff? Think it is the latter.
    If you can find it, watch the movie “Brazil.” Truly frightening. My VHS tape of it is broken. Or read a book by Marshall McLuhan.
    For whatever he can accomplish in office, my best to President Trump for even daring to call out “Fake News.” He may not prevail over the Swamp, but he has called out the media for their FAKE NEWS. That is an AMAZING ACCOMPLISHMENT.
    President Trump has tasked us with thinking about what we read in the “newspapers,” or on-line. To me he is saying – develop your ability to DISCERN. the difference between what is real and what is an illusion. Think he is well on the road to break through the Matrix and destroy the Borgs that want to rule us.
    Full Sturgeon Moon in Aquarius tonight. Anniversary of Woodstock. Lots going on in the universe. Will be deeply disturbing to many humans. Hang in there. The war against the Borgs is only beginning. Love to all.

    OMPLISHMENT.

    Myself, I believe the greatest dis-ease of human kind these daze is the instant gratification of posting a comment. Just for the sake of doing so. I write this without judgment or condemnation. Despise that I had to resort to spell check to write this. Amen.
