Inappropriations

Senator Rand Paul says we are funding a war on Christianity — and not just by the IRS.

American taxpayers are paying for a “war on Christianity” at home and abroad, Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul said during a speech at a conservative conference Thursday.

“There is a war on Christianity,” Paul told an audience of mostly evangelical Christians and Jews during a luncheon at the annual Faith and Freedom Conference in Washington. “Not just from liberal elites here at home, but worldwide. And your government, or more correctly, you, the taxpayer, are funding it. You are being taxed to send money to countries that are not only intolerant of Christians, but openly hostile. Christians are imprisoned and threatened with death for their beliefs.”

Paul, who has said he’s considering running for president in 2016, was referring to U.S. financial aid to foreign countries where Christian persecution occurs.

Paul has long called for an end to foreign aid to particularly Muslim-majority countries Egypt, Pakistan and Libya, but he does not always frame his opposition in terms of faith. Last year, he introduced a bill to the Senate that would cut off aid to those countries.

Once again — outraged, but not shocked.

    What should we expect when we financially support the War on America. Obama’s Muslim Brotherhood (and a member or theirs is an aide at the WH) recently said that they are at war with us, when they forgot they were on TV. Instead of Morsi condemning the remark, he reminded the person that they were being recorded and all had a good laugh.

    Okay, nice speech. What he says is true. And he wants to de-fund the Beast. Fine. Great. Then what? Sit back and watch those countries slaughter Christians with money from Russia and China? This strikes me as mere speech-ifying and pandering to his audience. Sen. Paul doesn’t really want to do anything to stop the killing since that would require addressing some very difficult foreign and military policy questions. And I don’t think he has good answers for those.

    I was listening to him being interviewed by Neil Cavutto about a lawsuit he wants to bring regarding the NSA phone records kerfuffle. Cavutto asked him at least 3 times, “Who are you going to sue? The White House? NSA? DOJ? Who?” And Sen. Paul kept dodging, “We’re suing about the constitutionality …” blah, blah, blah.

    When it comes to tough questions about the real world, Sen. Paul is just another politician playing CYA.

    As I’ve said many times before, let the firings and impeachments begin! The Obama admin. has got so much crap on the table now, it would take a good, conservative government 20 years to sort out and undo it all! Good luck muchachos! The longer they stay away from impeaching this mob from Chicago and kick all the Muslims out of the country and keep playing FA with the southern border problem, the more impossible the task becomes! FIRE THEM ALL!
