During the Republican debates, Rand Paul was the only candidate that spoke the truth and did not engage in fear mongering. He worked very hard crisscrossing the country and doing his very best. Even then, Rand Paul could not rise from low single digits in the polls. In addition, many of his venues did not have very many people. This simply boggles the mind when we consider the rest of the Republican field of 2016.
Gary Johnson held a rally in Reno and approximately 1500 people showed up. Johnson is holding a rally in the conservative state of Utah on August 6th and it is packed as well.
It seems that Ron Paul’s torch of liberty has been passed to Gary Johnson. Gary Johnson’s poll numbers are double what Rand Paul’s were. In fact, Johnson’s poll numbers may hit 15% in short order.
Rand Paul’s role at the Benghazi Congressional hearings has actually helped Republicans. Now, Wikileaks has some juicy information on Hillary Clinton shipping arms from Libya to Syria and backing ISIS rebels. This suggests that Hillary Clinton lied under oath during Rand Paul’s deposition when he asked the same question. Hillary Clinton has perjured herself over a dozen times, yet the federal government does nothing.
Julian Assange: So, those Hillary Clinton emails, they connect together with the cables that we have published of Hillary Clinton, creating a rich picture of how Hillary Clinton performs in office, but, more broadly, how the U.S. Department of State operates. So, for example, the disastrous, absolutely disastrous intervention in Libya, the destruction of the Gaddafi government, which led to the occupation of ISIS of large segments of that country, weapons flows going over to Syria, being pushed by Hillary Clinton, into jihadists within Syria, including ISIS, that’s there in those emails.There’s more than 1,700 emails in Hillary Clinton’s collection, that we have released, just about Libya alone.
