Man allegedly Threatens to Chop up Rand Paul and His Family with an Ax … Arrested by U.S. Capitol Police
THE CIVIL LEFT …
As reported at the Courier Journal, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and his family was allegedly threaten by a male to be chopped up with an ax. WTH!?! Sen. Paul tweeted his thanks on Monday to the U.S. Capitol Police for arresting a man who allegedly threatened to kill the Republican lawmaker and chop up his family with an ax. Although the police did not comment in an ongoing investigation, speaking at an event on Monday in Litchfield, KY, Paul said the unnamed man had called his Bowling Green office and “threatened to kill me and chop up my family with an ax.” This is not the first time that Sen. Paul has faced such threats and violence and certainly not the first time that Republicans law makers and Trump suppers have been viciously attacked because of their support of President Trump. The uncivil behavior and violence against Republicans is out of control. Are the Democrat leaders only going to denounce this after some one is seriously hurt, or worse?
A man is accused of threatening to chop up U.S. Sen. Rand Paul and his family with an ax.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) set to officially announce his run for president for 2016 on Tuesday …
CNN/ORC International Poll: Sen. Rand Paul (KY-R) Rising to the Top in the GOP Field for 2016 Presidential Race
It is obviously way too early, but Sen. Rand Paul (KY-R) is trending upward and leading the pack for the 2016 Republican presidential race.
According to the most recent CNN poll, the Republican Kentucky Senator top the list of potential Republican presidential candidates for 2016 in a national poll. It is early in the game and one would think these polls are more about name recognition than what a candidate may actually stand for or be against. However, Paul’s surge to the top may have more to do with his libertarian and Tea Party, anti-establishment roots, rather his popularity. One thing is for certain, Rand Paul is on a roll as he recently topped a Republican N.H. poll and overwhelmingly won the straw poll at CPAC. Could we please nominate a GOP candidate who actually believes in the US Constitution, the rule of law and making America that shining city on the hill, rather than just being concerned about their power?
Rand Paul has done something his father never did – top the list of potential Republican presidential candidates in a national poll.
According to a new CNN/ORC International survey, 16% of Republicans and independents who lean toward the GOP say they would be likely to support the senator from Kentucky for the 2016 nomination.
Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, the 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee, garnered 15%, with longtime Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who’s considering another bid for the White House, at 11%.
One thing is for certain, there will be no candidate that we will agree with on 100%; however, it is so important to pick the most conservative and electable of the bunch as this country cannot afford another 4 years of this Democrat insanity as president. Something has to be done to reverse what has transpired during the past 6 years of Obama, before it is too late. Actually, it can begin by voting in non-establishment House and Senate Republicans this Fall in the 2014 midterm elections.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) Wins CPAC Presidential Straw Poll in a Landslide … 2nd Sen. Ted Cuz (TX), 3rd Ben Carson
Look for Democrats and their liberal MSM minions to go after the rising new anti-establishment star of the Conservative movement, Rand Paul.
Rand Paul wins the presidential straw poll at CPAC going away. Paul received 31% of the vote, while his fellow anti-establishment Republican Texas Senator Ted Cruz finished in second place with 11%. Neurosurgeon Ben Carson, who came to prominence when he let America and Barack Obama know what he felt about Obamacare at the 2013 National Prayers Breakfast, finished third with 9%. Paul is a very dangerous and formidable opponent for Democrats as he energizes the GOP base and brings in the young and libertarian vote.
Rand Paul handily won the presidential straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference Saturday, one gauge of the Republican base’s mood less than two years before the 2016 primary season kicks off.
The Kentucky senator received 31 percent, far ahead of second place Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who received 11 percent. Neurosurgeon Ben Carson finished third with 9 percent, ahead of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who received 8 percent.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum tied for fifth place, with 7 percent.
Um, Chris Christie who? The Republican that the media just drools over, including Fox News, finished distant 4th.
- Sen. Rand Paul – KY (31%) – Although I do not agree with all of his policies, Paul is a Conservative and breath of fresh air from the power-elite GOP establishment.
- Sen. Ted Cruz – TX (11%) – A Conservative rock star, who if he can run, would make a great President and follow the US Constitution.
- Neurosurgeon Ben Carson (9%) – From out of nowhere Carson has taken the Conservatives by storm. I would vote for Ben in a heartbeat.
- Gov. Chris Cristie – NJ (8%) – RINO has no chance of winning GOP primary if Republicans ever want to be anything more than Democrat-light.
- Gov. Scott Walker – WI (7%) – A solid GOP governor who will one day be a president.
- Former Sen Rick Santorum – PA (7%)
- Sen. Marco Rubio – FL (6%) – His stance on immigration amnesty has made Rubio toast with the base.
- Rep. Paul Ryan – WI (3%) – The base not enamored with establishment Republican and 2012 VP nominee.
- Gov. Rick Perry – TX (3%) – His performance in the 2012 GOP primaries may be too much to overcome.
Four others pulled 2%: Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
While other addresses at this year’s CPAC focused on specific policies and red-meat issues like gay marriage and ObamaCare, Paul spoke in broad metaphorical terms of the need to “stand together for liberty.”
“It isn’t good enough to pick the lesser of two evils,” he said. “We must elect men of principle and conviction and action who will lead us back to greatness. There is a great and tumultuous battle underway, not for the future of the Republican Party, but for the future of the country.”
Paul framed the libertarian-ideas that have gained prominence within the party in recent years in historical terms, positioning his values as descending from the nation’s Founding Fathers. Paul name-dropped foundational American thinkers ranging from Daniel Webster to John Adams, James Madison to Montesquieu, but also quoted Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters.
One of his biggest applause lines seemed specifically geared toward the digital generation that has special resonance in the wake of the ongoing debate over privacy and NSA surveillance.
“I believe what you do on your cellphone is none of their damn business,” he said, to extended cheers from the crowd.
Rand Paul released the following statement touting his win:
“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,” he said. “Together we will stand up for the Constitution. Together we will fight for what is right. Thank you, and onwards to victory.
Senator Rand Paul (KY-R) Has His Own Obamacare Debacle … Exchange Enrolled His Son Automatically in Medicaid
WHAT A JOKE … EVEN US SENATORS CANNOT PROPERLY ENROLL ONTO OBAMACARE …
Senator Rand Paul discussed this past Sunday on ABC’s ‘This Week’ that even he had trouble signing up his family for Obamacare on the Kentucky state health exchange. So what happened when Paul attempted to sign his family up for Obamacare … why his son was immediately enrolled into Medicaid. Hmm, as Weasel Zippers opinies, “I’m pretty sure his son doesn’t qualify for Medicaid”. I think they would be correct. Can you imagine how many people have been incorrectly enrolled in a Medicaid plan? ,Or individuals that had a private healthcare plan and now have a Medicaid one?
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that he’s had trouble signing up his own family through the Kentucky state health exchange.
“I tried to get my son signed up through the Kentucky exchange, you know, the one Democrats have said is so good, and I have here my son’s Medicaid card. We didn’t try to get him Medicaid,” Paul said.
Kentucky is the only state that voted for Gov. Mitt Romney in the 2012 election that created its own health exchange, and Democrats have repeatedly touted its effectiveness.
“I’m trying to pay for his insurance, but they automatically enrolled him in Medicaid. For a month they wouldn’t talk to us because they weren’t sure he existed. He had to go down to the welfare office, prove his existence, then the next thing we know we get a Medicaid card,” Paul said.
