If Rand gets his coveted speaking slot at the national GOP convention, I'll be sure to bump this thread hours before he's due to speak.

Wow.  This is huge.  Ask a question and go to jail.  Hope Rand enjoys being a one term senator.

Summary?

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. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtO5INu-VY4 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.

The end is nigh when a journalist with press credentials gets threatened for asking questions to "officials".  Rand--enjoy your office while you can.  You'll be thrown out next election.

She had the audacity to ask about his support for Romney.  It's not like she was physically assaulting him.  Guess now asking questions is considered terrorism.  Welcome to the new America.  You're not allowed to ask tough questions of elected "officials".

If anyone ever doubted before, this is proof 110%; Rand Paul stands on the side of the globalist agenda. He must have flown on air force one and was shown the promise land of riches.

It would seem appropriate for Infowars to have Luke Rudkowski and Abby Martin on air very soon,... if not Rand himself or an aid to answer directly for any role Rand had in Abby Martin's prosecution, plus he can answer the Romney question while we're there.

And still Paul supporters think they have a secret plan that will save the republic, at the last moment, that they are not telling anyone. It's hard to give up your hero's once you have so much emotional baggage invested in them. Kind of like the Obama supporters don't you think?

You got it already, "Hey Rand, ah, Abbey Martin, from Media Roots.  I just wanted to ask you one quick question, um, you know your endorsement for Mitt Romney, people have alot of questions about it."

She actually didn't even ask a question, more a statement of his betrayl of ideas that many of us would like, as you say 'sure as hell like to know' why.

The misdirected Rand Paul smearing continues! Why don't you focus on the thugs in the Senate who have been screwing you for decades (95 plus). That would be a better use of your time!

Come on guys! This is getting ridiculous! You are using your energy on things that you could be using on REAL ISSUES like digging up information on all the old fart Senators that have sold us out their entire time in Congress. Those are the guys you should be focusing on and the ones we need to get out of Congress in this upcoming election and going forward as their terms expire.

You can do better, and use your time more wisely. Time to do it!

I don't think it's misdirected.  We need to expose the Benedict Arnold's, Brutus's and Judas Iscariot's when they emerge.   They deserve every bit of the scorn they get.   That doesn't mean that we should ignore the Pelosi's and Boener's of the world.  But Rand made his bed, so he needs to lie in it. 

He could've just as easily stopped, gave some BS answer to Abby and then said "I'm sorry, but I'm late for a meeting" and scurried away.  But nope, he scurries away, head down, and then has the "authorities" threaten to imprison her and take away the press credentials of everyone at RT.  That's a new low in backstabbing.

Why not address what he did? Rather than bash anyone who criticizes him? Had this been any Senator without the last name Paul you would have blown a gasket I bet. This is a real issue, a very dangerous path of intimidation to wipe out part of the first Amendment. Nothing more "real" than that.

Yea we should just Ignore betrayal, especially if it is our hero that did it. They have even more responsibility as they gave people hope then destroyed it, the others are already our enemies we know what to expect and how to respond to them. Why should we treat misbehavior any differently between the two?

The enemy within the gate is far more dangerous then the enemy outside the gate.

Obama voters: "Obama lied to us when he campaigned for office. Instead of 'changing' any of the bad policies of the Bush administration, he's either perpetuated or expanded them."

Self-appointed Thought Police: "The misdirected Obama smearing continues! Why don't you focus on the Republicans who've been screwing you for decades? That would be a better use of your time!"

Lecturing people like school children might be enough to silence dissent among weak-minded Democrats, but all that will do here is make people want to criticize Rand Paul all the more.

So if you're trying to persuade people, you might want to consider a less abrasive approach. But if you're not, then by all means, continue barking orders at people. Just don't be surprised if this has the opposite of its intended affect.

Your quiet right !

When people invest heavily in any doctrine they find it hard to let go, no matter how blatant the facts. It applies across the political spectrum to all political parties. Political Parties are nothing more than cults into which people are inducted, indoctrinated, and throughly brainwashed.

While we continue to to fall in love with these harlots of false doctrines we will always be ultimately let down and betrayed.

Political Parties offer a childish logic that is the panacea of all aliments, when in reality the world is complex and circumstances are always different in each case. Those who have ingested a political doctrine will always regurgitate there brainwashed thinking.

Consider how many people on this forum will always advocate that 'everything' should be run by private business, yet they moan about the Federal Reserve ...

Yes, it is obvious you think this! IMO your priorities are wrong and you are misleading people! Have you ever looked into the actions of the other 99 Senators? Many of them have been betraying people for decades! Do you care about that or does it take too much time to look into these traitors? Priorities are important when we are being attacked on all fronts!

This disappoints me more and more.  I cannot fathom why Rand would do these things, I am thinking that he was more than likely threatened to toe the line or else.

I continue to watch very closely things Rand Paul does.  It definitely appears, to me, he is a sell-out on the face of it, but I know in my gut it is deeper than most of us think.  I am not prepared to buy into the illusion (or delusion) he is doing the things he does to win over the establishment to later slam them with liberty-minded legislature.  We know one man cannot break the power structure that way--his father has tried for over twenty-years and it has failed.  

However, I do understand how politics work.  So my jury is still out on it.  I do not condemn, nor condone any thing Rand has done thus far.  He is definitely sending out mixed messages.

So you totally trust RT on everything they say and do? I think all media is suspect and has agendas.

I'm inclined to believe that Rand doesn't know much about RT other than its a RUSSIAN news site. Therefore, he has right to be leery just like any news person that approaches him to attempt to get him to say something they can later twist. I say it's not a bad thing to reject interviews with the media and avoid creepy media people. Most of them are a bunch of lying troublemakers. Certainly you know that by now.

Congressmen, especially visible ones like the Pauls, are constantly bombarded by news punks. Most are not there to ask appropriate questions but to stir things up. Certainly you should know that also.
