President Trump on Budget & Spending Cuts along with the Mulvaney Appointment – a real win for the Taxpayer!

Trump says a lot in a few words  “We must do a lot more with less”  Hiring freezes are already in place and he is working on a cabinet that knows how to manage wisely.  All this bodes well for the overworked American taxpayer.

Congratulations to Mick Mulvaney — here’s the backstory and some insight into how good he is as an appointment —

“Part of the job is saying ‘no,'” Mulvaney told The Post and Courier on Friday, less than 24 hours after being sworn in as the new Director of the Office of Management and Budget.

Sen Rand Paul on Read the Bills Mic Drop.pngSenator Paul objected to the passage of HR 2576. Senator Rand Paul is objecting because he believes lawmakers should read legislation before voting on it. This legislation is being unnecessarily rushed without an opportunity for review.

During a vote on HR 2576, Rand Paul took to the floor to voice his objections of not only the bill, but the way it was being pushed through without giving lawmakers ample time to read and understand it.

Rand Paul Does More than Talk about Veterans and Their Issues

Source Post  Louisiana for Rand Paul

“I recall meeting Mr. Trump at The Citadel in South Carolina. I specifically wanted to talk with him for only a few minutes about Veterans issues. I was in Uniform. I did get a picture, and was then shuttled away. He could have cared less.

Compare this with the first time I met Sen Rand Paul, also at the Citadel, also in uniform. I had been released from the VA Hospital two days prior and still had the bandages on my wrist from a suicide attempt due to the VA mis-managing my medication. After Sen. Rand Paul gave his speech I waited in line to speak with him, again about problems facing Veterans. Sen. Paul noticed my bandages and asked what had happened. I told him. He then postponed a press conference for 20 minutes and walked me behind a curtain with his staffer to talk with me. He said to me, “Forget I am a Senator, I am also a doctor.” He was concerned not only as a Senator and Doctor, but as a human being about what had happened, and what caused my attempt.

Before leaving, I gave him an idea for legislation to help Veterans. Two weeks later, he introduced my idea to the Senate as an amendment to the 2014 National Defense Authorization Act. Sen. Paul also had his staffer give me his personal cell number for me to call if I ever needed anything, or felt the way I did before I was hospitalized.

It’s easy to claim to stand for Veterans, to donate money when you have billions. It takes a different kind of person to put off press conferences, and to take action on behalf of Veterans and the Military. Sen. Rand Paul has introduced legislation and fought for Veterans. He has actually treated untold numbers of Veterans as a Doctor. He helped this old Sergeant when he didn’t have to.

To call Sen Rand Paul “weak” in reference to the troops, or Veterans shows how little Donald Trump knows, or cares about Veterans, other than using them to aggrandize himself. As for beating Sen Rand Paul in a round of golf, we all have skills, one of Mr Trump’s is apparently golf. I hear President Obama is also pretty good at golf, which has no bearing on his ability, or Mr. Trump’s to lead this great country.

My skill is marksmanship, I challenge Donald Trump to a shooting match, any range, anytime. I win, he publicly apologize to Sen. Rand Paul for calling him weak on the Military and Veterans, he can tell me what he wants if he should win.

I have stood for freedom my entire adult life, 12 years in uniform, 12 months in Combat, and now I stand with Rand.”

Rand Paul Owns CPAC 2014

This year’s Conservative Political Action Conference has had something of a deflated feeling floating about it. The crowds are smaller, the panels are fewer, and the entire enterprise has a sneaking feeling of being scrimped on. For Rand Paul, however, CPAC was bigger and better than ever.

At last year’s conference, Paul was freshly coming off of his launch into the full national spotlight thanks to a filibuster of John Brennan’s nomination to the CIA in protest of Justice Department equivocating on executive domestic droning authority. Yet for all the positive attention he received from that filibuster, Paul was still treading softly on the Republican political ground. Libertarian politics had not been overly welcome in the wider GOP, especially after a decade of Bush II foreign policy. So he took to the 2013 stage with a rock star’s reception, complete with Metallica’s “Enter Sandman,” but deployed a sophisticated rhetorical strategy intended to make libertarianism more comfortable for conservative ears.What a difference a year makes.When Paul arrived behind the podium Friday night, he walked and talked with the assurance of a man confident in his base of support, and spoke more to rally the faithful than sell the skeptical. From the beginning, Paul centered his remarks around liberty, telling the audience he was not calling for more Republicans, but more “friends of liberty.” And where last year’s speech was essentially grounded, a friendly pitch to make common cause, Paul deployed much loftier rhetoric, interspersing (as he often has) quotations and references to classic thinkers like Madison and Montesquieu in his rousing call to arms. The running theme was the “great battle” coming, and an urging to not be “lemmings” rushing towards destruction, but rather men who would defend their inalienable rights.

For the second year in a row, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has won the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) presidential straw poll. The poll also found that libertarians are increasingly growing in influence.

Paul took 31% of the 2,459 votes cast, up from the 25% he earned in the 2013 iteration of the straw poll. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) finished in a distant second place, with 11%. Dr. Ben Carson finished third, taking 9%.

“I am grateful to all the attendees who stood with me. The fight for liberty continues, and we must continue to stand up and say: We’re free and no one, no matter how well-intentioned, will take our freedoms from us. Together we will stand up for the Constitution. Together we will fight for what is right,” said Paul in a statement from RandPAC. “Thank you and onwards to victory.”

Rand Paul: Romney’s wrong on Middle East, defense spending

Rand Paul: Romney’s wrong on Middle East, defense spending

CNN
October 10, 2012

This week, I will campaign for Gov. Mitt Romney. I believe this election will and should be about moving America back from the edge of the abyss on which we stand, where our debt and spending threaten to overwhelm and drown us. Romney’s belief in free markets, limited government and trade make him the clear choice to lead our country come January.

I do not, however, support a call for intervention in Syria. And, if such intervention were being contemplated, it is absolutely necessary that Congress give any such authority to the president. No president, Republican or Democrat, has the unilateral power to take our nation to war without the authority of the legislature.

At times, I have been encouraged by Romney’s foreign policy. I agree with his call to end the war in Afghanistan sooner rather than later and with his skepticism of, and call for reform in, foreign aid, but I am a bit dismayed by his foreign policy speech Monday, titled “Mantle of Leadership.”
