Senator Rand Paul ripped Major League Baseball this week after the organization decided to relocate the All-Star Game out of Atlanta; saying Republicans should “boycott them” in retaliation.
“They started it. Major League Baseball wants to boycott the whole state of Georgia, including Atlanta. They’ve already gotten rid of the All-Star Game and the draft, and they’re doing it because they don’t like a Republican law — a law that actually expands voting; it doesn’t contract voting. Georgia now has more early voting than New York has. It’s kind of ridiculous; even the facts don’t meet what they’re trying to do,” said Paul.
If @mlb is boycotting states that pass Republican election integrity laws, maybe Republicans should boycott Major League Baseball?

“But my point is, yeah, they want to boycott us, why don’t we boycott them,” he added. “This is the only thing that will teach them a lesson. If Coca-Cola wants to only operate in Democrat states and wants only Democrats to drink Coca-Cola, God love ’em. We’ll see how well they do when half of the country is drinking Coca-Cola, when half of the country quits using Delta. So the thing is, they’re all woke but they’re really doing something against the financial interest of every business. Publicly-traded businesses usually don’t get involved with politics because it hurts their bottom line to make half the country unhappy.”

'IT'S OVER': Rand Paul Says Trump Impeachment Trial ‘Dead on Arrival’ in the Senate
Senator Rand Paul labeled Donald Trump’s impending Impeachment Trial “dead on arrival” this week after 45 lawmakers voted to designate the entire process as “Unconstitutional.”
“The Senate just voted on my constitutional point of order. 45 Senators agreed that this sham of a ‘trial’ is unconstitutional. That is more than will be needed to acquit and to eventually end this partisan impeachment process. This ‘trial’ is dead on arrival in the Senate,” posted Paul on Twitter.

“If you voted that it was unconstitutional, how in the world would you ever vote to convict somebody for this?” Paul told reporters after the vote, according to Politico. “This vote indicates it’s over. The trial is all over.”
RAND’S STAND: Paul RIPS Brennan, Says He Should be STRIPPED of Security Clearance
Sen. Rand Paul continued his all-out attack against former CIA Director John Brennan this week; saying the senior Obama aide should have his security clearance revoked after he nearly “cost the life of a double agent.”
Paul was speaking with Fox News shortly after his meeting with President Trump Monday; adding all former CIA agents who become “talking heads” should have their top-secret clearance terminated.
“I don’t think that ex-CIA agents of any stripe who are now talking heads should continue to get classified information. I think it’s wrong,” said Paul.
“John Brennan leaked information that almost cost the life of a double agent,” he added. “Now he’s a talking head on the outside, saying that basically President Trump should be executed. That’s what we do for treason. And so, yeah, I’m very concerned about him having privileges because of his past history.”
