Rand Paul Tries to Have Journalist Fired for Daring to Ask Questions Unfriendly to Neoconservatives! – *video*

Not a “like father, like son” synergism here. Rand is NOT a principled libertarian like his father. We’re afraid Rand is whatever the Republican neocon leadership tells him to be. Sorry folks. Best to dismount this one trick pony before you get the blame for his disobedience, and the cuddle pet of Mitch McConnell.

Luke Rudkowski talks with Abby Martin of MediaRoots.org and RT about U.S. Senator Rand Paul’s attempt to get her arrested and stripped of her press credentials for asking him tough questions in the Capitol building. 
A week after our video with Abby Martin came out on YouTube, the RT office, where Abby works, got an ominous phone call from the Senate Media Relations Committee. The Committee was acting on behalf of Rand Paul and threatened both Abby and the entire RT news organization. The threats included ambiguous “charges” for violating the rules of the Committee floor, Abby’s possible arrest and the termination of her and the entire office’s press credentials.

After a month of meetings and deliberation, the Senate Media Relations office backed down and did not make good on any of their threats.

  1. Its amazing that these two journalists are surprised by Rand Pauls attitude. I knew he had SOLD OUT when I saw he voted for the 2014 NDAA a few months ago. Every [politician has their price and it seems that he has been bought and paid for just like the rest of the COMMUNISTS in Washington. He has become another member of the RULING ELITE that see Americans as serfs. Therefore, I suggest he be striped of his LIBETARIAN affiliation and considered just another corporate whore like Bath House Barry. Bottom line is that today if one is not a puppet one has no chance in political office. Whether he has been blackmailed by NSA or just bought off by the NWO is irrelevant. He has become just another TRAITOR.

  2. Rand must be a bitter disappointment for his father.
