WASHINGTON (PNN) - July 2, 2019 - Republican senator from Kentucky Rand Paul has praised President Donald Trump for calling off an air strike on Iran, saying, “It really takes a statesman to show restraint amidst a chorus of voices for war.”
The White House was considering the strikes in retaliation to Iran shooting down a Fascist Police States of Amerika surveillance drone that was intruding on Iranian airspace. This incident came shortly on the heels of a fire on a Japanese oil tanker wrongly blamed on Iran; inconsistencies and curiosities about the affair gave it a strong appearance of a Gulf of Tonkin-style false flag.
President Trump, who campaigned on a nationalist/populist platform of disentangling from endless, destructive foreign wars and draining the Washington swamp, has worked hard to deliver on those promises to the Amerikan people, despite the intransigence of the political establishment and the powerful war lobby. Unfortunately, some of Trump’s recent top appointments, including Secretary of State fascist Mike Pompeo, National Security Advisor fascist John Bolton, and fascist Gina Haspel, head of the CIA, have continually revealed themselves as globalist warmongers intent on subverting the president’s agenda.
However, Trump appears to have found a friend and supporter in his former primary opponent, the libertarian-leaning senator Rand Paul, who, along with popular Fox News host Tucker Carlson, appears to have been instrumental in resisting the influence of the hawks and helping the president to stick to his mandate and resist the false flag propaganda of the Deep State, which seeks another destructive Middle Eastern war. The personal connection between the two statesmen should give the Amerikan people encouragement with every successive Bush/Clinton-style foreign disaster averted.
