Rand Paul: ´We don´t have money to
spend´ for Trump´s border wall

The Hill, by Brett Samuels

Original Article

Posted By:zoidberg, 1/11/2018 9:14:15 AM

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Wednesday that while he supports additional barriers at the U.S.-Mexico border, he believes some of the estimated costs for President Trump’s border wall are too high to justify. "I remain a fiscal conservative, even on the wall, so I’m not excited about spending $20, $30, $40 billion on a wall. I’m still a believer that we don’t have money to spend. We’re $700 billion in the hole,” Paul said on CNN.  “And while I will vote for money for barriers, I’m not voting for $40 billion for barriers,” Paul added.  A report last week detailed Trump’s

I don’t really care about whether little Rand finds it exciting or not. We need the wall. The expense has been justified. And there are still ways to get Mexico and any country to which remittances are wired by their citizens living here to pay for the wall.

Somebody please tell Rand that perhaps they could take the money being spent to take care of the illegals to build the wall.

It is insane that our tax money is being spent for medical care, food and God knows what else to make sure they are comfortable.

By keeping out 1/2 of the people the savings from medical and education alone would pay for the wall in 2 years.

So Rand let me tell you how we little people decide what we have money to pay for and what we do not.

First we start with priorities, shelter, water, food, transportation to a job. Then we decide what to do with the left overs, more shelter than essential survival needs, better food, a car vs taking the bus, then we look at even lower priorities, like entertainment.

This shouldn´t come as a shock to you sir but your job is to do the same. The constitution will prove helpful in removing any confusion regarding the priorities. Defense and border security are in that top tier. For example all the federal government has accomplished with the department of education is to make education worse so don´t tell me we can´t afford top priority when we spend billions on things not in the constitutional purview of the federal government.

Here´s a little tidbit to consider; what is one third of the cost of the federal prison system? One third of the inmates are illegal intruders. What´s cheaper a wall or all of the associates costs of not having a wall?

Mr. Paul, I have at times thought of you as a true representative of the people. Perhaps I was wrong, way wrong.

If you add up all the decentralized government benefits at all levels being paid out, the government law enforcement costs to deal with the massive illegal alien population, and all the illicit drugs that illegal aliens in the employ of the international cartels are smuggling into and are transporting across the country, the total clearly exceeds $40 billion every year. So even if an effective borderline barrier will look to be expensive at the front end, once completed, the country will no longer have to pay out tens of billions of dollars each year to millions of illegal aliens and for all levels of government to deal with them.

Paul is correct and there will be no "Wall", never was going to be. POTUS himself yesterday admitted as much: "...I´ll take the blame...". He used the imagery to get elected.

We don´t need an literal, continuous, impractical "Wall" (see China). What we do need are sections of barriers, with surveillance, and armed reinforcements to handle the problem.

If memory serves, it was funded way back in 1986 but democrats would not follow through. Then there are all the other many ideas that come to mind for funding, like cutting back on spending, cutting foreign aid to Mexico, installing serious fees for all wire transfers to locations south of our border, etc.

Plenty of ways to fund the border Sparky Paul, and you just better get used to the fact that you aren´t going to get your amnesty. The nation´s voters have spoken when they elected Trump, not YOU.

Milton Friedman knew it. You certainly ought to know it. Unintended consequences of statist nonsense will decrease and liberty/prosperity/revenue will increase under Trump.

Besides we need you more than ever to fight against the FISA surveillance issue and the danger to all of our liberty. I mean that sincerely. Please look over there and stop with the line-item squirrel stuff. Trump’s got this.

Citing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh´s record on privacy issues, Sen. Rand Paul (R–Ky.) said Sunday that he has yet to decide if he´ll vote to confirm the judge. "I´m concerned about Kavanaugh," Paul said on Fox & Friends, alluding to the judge´s views on the Fourth Amendment, which protects American citizens from "unreasonable searches and seizures." Paul explained that since President Donald Trump "did such a great job" with his first Supreme Court pick, Neil Gorsuch, he is keeping an "open mind" regarding Kavanaugh. But the Kentucky Republican is "worried" and "perhaps disappointed" that Kavanaugh may "cancel out Gorsuch´s

"We have to STOP the next Trump nominee!" says a pop-up solicitation on People for the American Way´s website. Before you rush to "donate now," you might want to consider the organization´s assessment of Trump´s last Supreme Court nominee. "Far from being a fair-minded constitutionalist," PFAW says, Neil Gorsuch "has proven to be a narrow-minded elitist who consistently votes in favor of corporations and the powerful." The gap between that description and Gorsuch´s actual performance on the Court speaks volumes about the blind partisanship of Trump critics who care more about scoring political points than defending civil liberties.

Harley-Davidson, the iconic American motorcycle brand, will shift some manufacturing overseas in response to the raising of trade barriers on both sides of the Atlantic. In a filing made Monday with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Wisconsin-based Harley-Davidson disclosed plans to move some of its manufacturing facilities from the Rust Belt to the Old World in the hopes of avoiding higher costs created by new European Union tariffs that target American-made motorcycles, along with other cultural products like whiskey and blue jeans.

A Pennsylvania-based company that claims to be the last American manufacturer of steel beer kegs might be driven out of business by the tariffs that President Donald Trump imposed last week. On Thursday, Trump signed an executive order imposing 25 percent tariffs on steel imported into the United States (plus a 10 percent tariff on imported aluminum). The tariff will help steel makers at the expense of steel-consuming businesses like American Keg of Pottstown, Pennsylvania.

One of the ironies of trade protectionism is that tariffs and import quotas are what we do to ourselves in times of peace and what foreign nations do to us with blockades to keep imports from entering our country in times of war. Or consider that we impose sanctions on U.S. enemies such as North Korea, Russia, and Iran because we want them to feel the economic pain of being deprived of imports. But now we are imposing sanctions on our own country, putting up tariffs supposedly to make Americans more prosperous. If ever there were a crisis of logic

Since her surprise primary victory over 10-term Congressman Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th District, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been promoted by the media as the prototype of a new generation of young progressives destined to replace the leadership of the Democratic Party. Unfortunately for her media boosters, however, she keeps blowing her lines. It’s not just her rote advocacy of single-payer healthcare and guaranteed government jobs, or even that she backs wacky ideas like abolishing ICE and occupying airports — Ocasio-Cortez is genuinely clueless.

In a lengthy statement issued late Wednesday, Waters, D-Calif., said she’d been notified about forthcoming protests by the Oath Keepers, which she described as "an anti-government militia" that´s staged armed protests in cities across the country. She warned her supporters against being "baited" into counter-demonstrations or confrontations with the organization, which she said has a track record of "violent and provocative behavior."

Email Scandal: Last week we learned that a "foreign entity" may have been secretly receiving Hillary Clinton´s emails while she was Secretary of State, including many that contained classified information. And that the FBI apparently ignored this information during its "investigation." The reaction by the press to this bombshell? Crickets. At one point during Peter Strzok´s congressional testimony last week, Rep. Louie Gohmert made a stunning claim: FBI investigators were told that Clinton´s emails had been surreptitiously forwarded to a "foreign entity." And the FBI investigators who were allegedly conducting a thorough, unbiased, professional probe into Clinton´s

Beating your wife is worse than protesting during the national anthem. So, too, is sexually assaulting a woman. While that might seem obvious, it needs to be clarified given The Associated Press´ report Thursday that the Miami Dolphins are now including protesting during the anthem on their list of "conduct detrimental to the club." Under NFL rules, that´s an offense punishable by a suspension of up to four games. The Dolphins later told the AP that "all options are still open." But to give you an idea of how heinous at least one NFL team sees trying to draw attention to racial and economic inequality, a four-game suspension is

Michael Avenatti says he’s the “street fighter” Democrats need if they’re going to win the White House in 2020. Avenatti, a lawyer who has become a household name — or at least has sought to become one — with his media appearances representing adult-film star Stormy Daniels, says he’s “giving serious thought” to running for president. He says he’s skeptical that the politicians now seen as likely contenders in the 2020 presidential race can beat President Trump. The Democratic Party needs “a street fighter … someone that can give as good as they take,” he said. “Let us remember that

Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, the reported FBI lovebirds, are the poster children for the next “Don’t Text and Investigate” public service ads airing soon at an FBI office near you. Their extraordinary texting affair on their government phones has given the FBI a black eye, laying bare a raw political bias brought into the workplace that agents are supposed to check at the door when they strap on their guns and badges. It is no longer in dispute that they held animus for Donald Trump, who was a subject of their Russia probe, or that they openly discussed using the powers
