Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Saturday won a GOP presidential straw poll in New Hampshire at the Northeast Republican Leadership Conference. 

Paul brought in 15 percent of the vote at the conference in the first-in-the-nation primary state even though he did not attend, the conference announced in a tweet. 

The Kentucky Republican typically does well in straw polls with a strong base of supporters, similar to his father. A week ago, Paul won the straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference for the second year in a row.

Paul garnered 31 percent of the vote last week in the CPAC poll, while Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) trailed by more than 20 points in second place.

Three cheers+ for Rand Paul.................Patricia Smith

LOL WOW, EVERYONE STEP BACK FOR A MOMENT AND READ ALL THE POSTS SOMETIME, "WE WANT PAUL, NO WE WANT CRUZ, NO WE WANT SOMEONE ELSE" THIS IS EXACTLY THE REASON WE HAVE WHAT WE HAVE TODAY, BECAUSE PEOPLE REFUSED TO VOTE FOR A MORMON!!!! I DON'T KNOW BUT ALL WE CAN HOPE IS THE BEST MAN GETS UP THERE AND WE CAN ALL SUPPORT, AND IF THE RINOS WANT TO KEEP PUTTING UP PEOPLE "WE" DON'T LIKE THEN "WE" GO AROUND THE GOP ESTABLISHMENT'S TRADITION OF TAKING TURNS AS THE CANDIDATE THEY LIKE BEING PUT UP, IE. JOHN MC CAIN, AND ROMNEY, AND WHO EVER IS NEXT IN LINE. WHEN WILL THEY LEARN, EVER? THE WHOLE DAM POLITICAL GAME OF CHESS IS MADDENING BUT YOU KNOW, WE MAY NOT EVEN MAKE IT TO 2016 LET ALONE NOVEMBER FOR MID TERMS THE WAY WE'RE HEADED 

Mitchell- I agree with you as far as it doesn't matter what if any religion a person has. It does matter if the person has a high standard of moral character and intregrity! We talk a lot about history and repeating it. So lets talk about history. More people have been killed in the name of God, a Super Natural being, then for any other reason.

Yes, Robert, let's talk history.  While I agree wholeheartedly with you about the high standard of moral character, I remind you that the high moral character of which you write is based upon those same Judeo-Christian beliefs on which and around which our country was founded and built.  It is most assuredly NOT based upon a man's goodness.  Without laws, we demonstrate our evilness.  If we say it is OUR goodness, then we are denying the God that our founders worshipped.  And, please, do not give me a bunch of gobbledygook about the founders views of God.  I would  not imagine that you would attempt such.  Mark Levin, Dr. James Kennedy, many others, and I could supply you with a bibliography to support that their beliefs were similar to many of the beliefs that were held at that time by the regular Christian churches, most of which still reside with us today....Episcopalian (Anglican), Presbyterian, Baptist, et al.  Why do you think laws were created?  And whose laws do they mimic?  Why, that would Jehovah God's laws, the God of our fathers, the God that gave us liberty to shine from sea to shining sea.  From where did you think that shining city on a hill came originally?  Now, if you check God's word ("word" in this case is another word for "Jesus"...in the beginning was the "word" and the "word" was with Jehovah God and the "word" was Jehovah God), it says that God (Jesus, Holy Spirit, Word) did not come in peace.  Only the devil says that lie.  God came to separate the wheat from the chaff.  We are to do God's work on earth.  That means that we will also separate the wheat from the chaff.  However, some assign what they are doing's to "God's Work," but they are, in fact, doing their own work and the work of the devil and letting Christianity take the punch.  Sounds like the devil is doing his thing there, doesn't it?  Let's talk history.  Do not judge any part of Christendom by the evil works of men.  We are to discern spirits and man's motivation.  The Bible says so.  I discern good moral value and I also discern good Christian doctrine as expressed in one's life.  Please do not misunderstand me; I would vote for Rand in a heart beat if he is our standard bearer.  But before that post is attained by anyone, my vote is with someone who has not even entered the race: Trey Gowdy.  We are not against each other, Robert.  We may hold slightly different views, but we both want liberty, not tyranny.  We want constitutional government, not chaos.  We both want a Republican run government until there is a better option.  DIVIDED WE FALL.  UNITED WE STAND.  I would be pleased to stand next to you, shoulder to shoulder.  Come on elections.  Come on OAS.  Let's Pray.  Let's Roll!

We can see him fighting on a daily basis for our liberty.  I'd definitely vote for him.

Both Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are good ,bright and SMART,and wise young men!  Sarah Palin is in the same class and will say NO when that's the right answer. GOP has plenty young people that will lead this country  forward and upward to  new places where we want to go.------------OKGT

No, Patricia Smith, not Rand Paul.  He does NOT support Israel.  God says: "And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed."  I prefer to be blessed by God.  Don't you?  We have had enough of Rev. Wright's wishes.   Give me Trey Gowdy any day.

Ted Cruz, not Rand Paul, for President. How can anyone who wants to straighten out this country's path, support someone who endorses Mitch McConnell as Paul does?

Can you please give us evidence of that. I get his letters all the time and he seems supportive of Israel. I would like to know for sure. Thx.

I agree. PS.

I believe you are confusing him with his father. Here is an article about his views on Israel and US relations:

http://spectator.org/blog/22498/rand-paul-and-israel

I have an apple tree.  It stands tall and healthy. It produces luscious apples.  We collect them and give them away.  Everyone loves them.  It has generated new apple trees and they all produce luscious apples.  I look very similar to my Mom and Dad, as do you.  My sister even looks exactly like my grandmother.  I brought this up to my father and he said, "Apples don't fall far from the tree."  Now, who is it you say raised Rand Paul?  What church does he regularly attend?  Does he speak of his Christianity often? With boldness?  Under pressure, then, will he crack?  I hear what you say!  But I also know what that which has raised you also has taught you.  I see his voiced predominately raised for anti-abortion.  I do not hear an equally loud voice promoting Israel.  I keep waiting and listening, but.............................................nothing.  I do not get confused and speak my mind.  If confused, I check myself, and then, if appropriate, I speak.  He speaks of anti-abortion partially because he believes in it and partially in order to gain Christian votes.  Listen!  Was that Rand's voice just speaking about Israel's right to exist and flourish!  Sh!  Was it?  ......................No. I didn't think so.  Out of his mouth, a man speaketh his heart.  On a paper, man writes anything.  I will take Rand over any Democrat.  I will NOT choose him in the primaries.  I am too wary for that to occur!  You?  Listen.  Sh.  Is that Rand?  What is he SAYING!

ALERT ALERT

Hillary Clinton Was Not Formally Under
FBI Investigation At Any Time In 2015-2016

On Tuesday, Inspector General Michael Horowitz testified in a joint Congressional hearing to the House Oversight and House Judiciary panels about his review of the FBI’s (mis)handling of the Clinton email investigation.

House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) came out swinging Tuesday in a a joint hearing held by the House Oversight and House Judiciary Committees.

Gowdy ripped into Comey in his opening statement, stating, “we can’t survive with a justice system we don’t trust.”

Investigative journalist Paul Sperry reported Horowitz dropped a bombshell in his testimony.

Horowitz revealed the FBI never named a target or even a subject in the Clinton email probe!

Sperry tweeted: BREAKING: IG Horowitz revealed in Senate testimony FBI never named a target or even subject in Clinton probe. Not Mills, Abedin, Combetta or Clinton herself. “Nobody was listed as a subject of this investigation at any point in time,” adding this was “surprising” for a crim probe

So neither Hillary nor her top aides were formally under investigation by the FBI at any time in 2015-2016, tweeted Sperry.

BREAKING: Horowitz revealed that Hillary was never really under formal investigation, never listed by FBI as a "subject" of investigation.

President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton reacted to this bombshell bias from the FBI.

Tom Fitton  @TomFitton

.@RealDonaldTrump is a subject, but Hillary Clinton was never a "subject." Outrageous. Shut the Strzok-Page-Comey-McCabe-Lynch-Yates-Glenn Simpson-Steele-Brennan-Fusion GPS-Muller special counsel "stop @realDonaldTrump" investigation down.

tigation’ into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server was a complete sham.

No subjects were named, immunity was handed out like candy and Hillary was exonerated before witnesses were interviewed, including Hillary Clinton herself.

Hillary Clinton’s ‘interview’ with the FBI wasn’t even under oath.

Even more egregious, Hillary discussed pregnancy and babies during the majority of the 2.5 hour FBI interview because one of her lawyers was pregnant at the time.

Inspector General Horowitz also testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee Monday.

TEA PARTY TARGET

Targeting Of Tea Party Groups
John McCain’s Staff Director Urged Lois Lerner
And IRS To Engage In “Financially Ruinous”

Conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch obtained IRS documents Thursday revealing backstabber Senator John McCain’s former staff director urged the IRS, including the corrupt Lois Lerner to engage in “financially ruinous” targeting of conservative Tea Party groups.

And they did.

The IRS Conservative Targeting Scandal involved:

  • Hundreds of conservative groups were targeted
  • At least 5 pro-Israel groups
  • Constitutional groups
  • Groups that criticized Obama administration
  • At least two pro-life groups
  • An 83 year-old Nazi concentration camp survivor
  • A 180 year-old Baptist paper
  • A Texas voting-rights group
  • A Hollywood conservative group was targeted and harassed
  • Conservative activists and businesses
  • At least one conservative Hispanic group
  • IRS continued to target groups even after the scandal was exposed
  • And… 100% of the 501(c)(4) Groups Audited by IRS Were
  • Conservative

Now this…

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.” Kerner was appointed by President Trump as Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel.

The explosive exchange was contained in notes taken by IRS employees at an April 30, 2013, meeting between Kerner, Lerner, and other high-ranking IRS officials. Just ten days following the meeting, former IRS director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner admitted that the IRS had a policy of improperly and deliberately delaying applications for tax-exempt status from conservative non-profit groups.

Lerner and other IRS officials met with select top staffers from the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee in a “marathon” meeting to discuss concerns raised by both Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) that the IRS was not reining in political advocacy groups in response to the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. Senator McCain had been the chief sponsor of the McCain-Feingold Act and called the Citizens United decision, which overturned portions of the Act, one of the “worst decisions I have ever seen.”

In the full notes of an April 30 meeting, McCain’s high-ranking staffer Kerner recommends harassing non-profit groups until they are unable to continue operating. Kerner tells Lerner, Steve Miller, then chief of staff to IRS commissioner, Nikole Flax, and other IRS officials, “Maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous.” In response, Lerner responded that “it is her job to oversee it all:”

Henry Kerner asked how to get to the abuse of organizations claiming section 501 (c)(4) but designed to be primarily political. Lois Lerner said the system works, but not in real time. Henry Kerner noted that these organizations don’t disclose donors. Lois Lerner said that if they don’t meet the requirements, we can come in and revoke, but it doesn’t happen timely. Nan Marks said if the concern is that organizations engaging in this activity don’t disclose donors, then the system doesn’t work. Henry Kerner said that maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous. Nikole noted that we have budget constraints. Elise Bean suggested using the list of organizations that made independent expenditures. Lois Lerner said that it is her job to oversee it all, not just political campaign activity.

President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton had this to say about the newly obtained IRS documents showing more proof the agency was weaponized under Obama:

“The Obama IRS scandal is bipartisan – McCain and Democrats who wanted to regulate political speech lost at the Supreme Court, so they sought to use the IRS to harass innocent Americans. The Obama IRS scandal is not over – as Judicial Watch continues to uncover smoking gun documents that raise questions about how the Obama administration weaponized the IRS, the FEC, FBI, and DOJ to target the First Amendment rights of Americans.”
