Senator Rand Paul stated Tuesday that he will ask Tony Blinken, Joe Biden’s pick for secretary of state, to apologize for supporting the war in Iraq.

“On foreign policy, I am very worried that there will be a big shift, and it’s back to those who believe that we should militarily intervene abroad in a big way,” Paul said during a Fox News interview.

“You have neoconservatives on the right who want to intervene for geopolitical reasons, but then you have liberals, like Blinken and Samantha Power and others, who want to intervene for ‘humanitarian’ reasons,” Paul added.

“They want to send our armies and our young men and women around the world. And I think Blinken is a bad choice,” Paul asserted, before noting that Blinken even supported the war in Iraq.

“I’m going to ask him if he’s going to apologize for his support of the Iraq War and what lessons he learned from it, whether he still believes regime change in the Middle East is a good idea, which it was not a good idea. It was not a good idea in Libya either or in Syria,” Paul emphasised.

“I don’t think Biden or Blinken have really fully understood that. And I actually do think President Trump really did get that, that regime change in the Middle East hasn’t made us stronger,” Paul said.

Watch:

While Blinken is being hailed by some legacy media outlets as something akin to the second coming, others have pointed out that he is a dyed in the wool globalist.

Fury As National Guardsmen In D.C. Forced To Sleep Outside And In A Garage

It appears that this is the reward for protecting Democratic lawmakers

Photos and video have emerged of thousands of National Guardsmen in D.C. forced to sleep OUTSIDE and in a parking Garage near the Capitol building after a Democratic lawmaker complained that ONE guardsmen was not wearing a face mask.

It appears that this is the reward for protecting Democratic lawmakers:

Around 5000 guardsmen were forced to sleep in the garage with just one toilet.

According to reports, the soldiers do have hotel rooms in the city, but their strict shift pattern means they means returning there during rest breaks is out of the question.

Reports further indicate that it was Rep. Will Keating (D-MA) who complained to Capitol authorities that a Guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask, and had said to Keating “I appreciate my freedom.” 

Keating yesterday tweeted pictures with guardsmen, thanking them for their protection, yet it seems that his complaints effectively banished hundreds of the soldiers to sleeping rough.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden and his family were not wearing masks, even after he signed an executive order mandating it.

“Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guardsman told Politico.

Another guardsman told CNN “After everything went seamlessly, we were deemed useless and banished to a corner of a parking garage.”

Another told Task & Purpose “Leaving our families for the last two weeks to come down here. It’s certainly important and historic, but the day after inauguration you kick us literally to the curb? Come on, man.”

Other soldiers told The Washington Post “We are on top of each other all day, every day. We’ve given up,” and “Our guidance is if you’re not eating or drinking, you need to be wearing a mask. We’ve already had just some in my unit alone test positive for Covid, and they’re just keeping us packed together with caution tape in small areas. And that’s the only authorized rest area.”

If it’s true? So Schumer is suggesting the guard faked the footage?

After other members of Congress, both Republicans and Democrats, expressed outrage, the guardsmen were allowed back in the Capitol building at around midnight Thursday, and police apologised for banishing them.

Some Democrats just couldn’t help themselves though:

Even though they were allowed back in the Capitol building, is it still OK that these troops are sleeping on the floor?

While the corporate media salivated in anticipation of a repeat of the Capitol building storming, ready to blame Trump supporters, it was crickets when Antifa started rioting again last night.

In Seattle, groups of Antifa marauded through the streets vandalising property and starting fires.

Antifa violence also broke out in Portland, as Antifa attacked the Democratic Party building:

The group of weenie thugs carried flags promising “a new world from the ashes”, and stating “we are ungovernable” and “we don’t want Biden, we want revenge”:

They also burned Biden/Harris flags:

…and dawbed “f*ck Biden” all over the Democratic building:

Meanwhile, in Colorado an Antifa mob also burned flags and clashed with police:

The Antifa mob attacked other protesters, including pro-life and Trump supporters:

They carried banners reading “No honeymoon for Biden”:

It’s clear that this group don’t want ‘healing’, they just want to see America destroyed completely:

It’s all just ‘an idea’ though.

Trump Reportedly Promises “Orderly Transition” Of Power After Pence Certifies Biden As Next President

“While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again”

Americans awoke this morning to the news that President Donald Trump has reportedly promised an “orderly transition” of power following a certification of Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 election by Vice President Mike Pence at 3.41am.

Trump is reported to have said “Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20.”

The statement was released by aides on Twitter, following Trump’s account being suspended, with the tech company claiming the President was inciting violence.

“I have always said we would continue our fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted,” Trump’s reported statement said, adding “While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again.”

The development came after a full day of marches in Washington D.C. that ended in chaos with a bloc of Trump supporters storming the Capitol building.

Senate and House votes on challenges to States’ election results were severely disrupted, with several being abandoned after lawmakers withdrew support.

It has been claimed that it was Pence, not Trump, who ordered the entire National Guard deployed to the Capitol, after police declared a 6pm city-wide curfew.

Pence later spoke, addressing those who stormed the building, saying “To those who wreaked havoc in our capitol today, you did not win. Violence never wins. Freedom wins. And this is still the people’s house”.

Trump was suspended on Twitter, having two tweets completely removed, one of which was a video in which he expressed sympathy for supporters, but urged those at the Capitol to go home.

His last visible tweet was a call for peaceful demonstrations:
