McCain has lost it completely.

Rand Paul has responded.


GEIST: So, Senator, a little context around that. The vote was around putting Montenegro into NATO. What's your reaction to Senator McCain's characterization of your objection?

PAUL: You know, I think he makes a really, really strong case for term limits. I think maybe he's past his prime; I think maybe he's gotten a little bit unhinged.

Paul makes a good point, and as Mike Krieger noted yesterday, the McCain outburst should alarm all Americans. McCain is accusing a fellow Senator of disloyalty and allegiance to a foreign power simply because he disagrees with him. It’s remarkably similar to what we saw Adam Schiff do a few months ago in an embarrassing interview with Tucker Carlson. It seems yelling “Russia” is simply the new strategy for clueless politicians when they can’t win an argument.

Strangely Paul didn't explain his unusual vote (against the every other republican on the committee) to allow Montenegro to apply to NATO?

McCain never 'had it' to begin with. He's verifiably insane.

McCain had his hands on the Trump Russia dossier so he probably is influenced by that. The intelligence community as a whole doesn't think Trump collides with Russia anymore though.

Half right...

Russia has made a huge push in espionage on the US lately...

Remember Obama uncovered a sleeper cell a few years ago of 10 Russian Spies that were posing as average Americans.

The Steele Dossier was only one of a dozen plus shared with American Intelligence by multiple European intelligence services.

It was just revealed Flynn took money from Russia Today and didn't declare it and he also just retroactively registered as a foreign agent of Turkey, having taken over a half-million from them while working for Trump.

A Russian Intelligence vessel built for covert signal gathering and broadcast has been lurking 20 miles off the coast of Virginia and Maryland. No doubt to circumvent NSA surveillance of communications with Russian Assets in DC.

Former Intelligence chairman: More foreign spies in US than ever

There are currently more foreign intelligence operatives in the United States than at any point in the country’s history, the former head of the House Intelligence Committee claimed on Wednesday.

“There are more spies in the United States today from foreign nation states that at any time in our history — including the Cold War,” former Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) said in an address at the Heritage Foundation

Rand Paul did run for the presidency. He was even in the primary debates. Though it doesn't surprise me you didn't notice considering the fact that he practically had to scream to even be heard over the others.

Or I'm a liberal.

I don't think he has to. Rand Paul is a fiscal conservative with libertarian leanings. NATO is a money pit as few of its members contribute the requisite 2% of GDP on defense spending, nor have they met their readiness requirements. The US takes up the lions share of defense spending in Europe and people wonder why our defense budget is so high.

Taking on another new member is just another mouth to feed while they shirk their responsibilities.

Totally agree with you there. Alliances are great but we cannot keep shelling out money like we have been.

Montenegrin here.
I think there is an issue here, of not having complete information.
First things first.
Those who have forgotten this event:
At that time, Montenegro was part of Yugoslavia, just like Serbia.
And for a few days, it suffered bombs, depleted uranium, tomahawk missiles, etc....
People still have PTSD from that event, and is not easily forgotten.
More still that such operation was against UN Security Council, and banned munitions was used.
Half life of uranium is 4+ billion years.
Now, fast forward, after Noble Anvil/Allied Force, Montenegro administration took a sharp turn and began sporting anti Serbian sentiments. They still "liked" Russians primarily because of tourism along seaside, as a main source of income, and for real estate. After imposing sanctions on Russia as part of EU deal, Russia struck back with sanctions of their own, ban of major Montenegrin goods import to Russia. Now, after ratification of the US to have Montenegro join NATO, Russians began televised campaign to discourage Russians to not have vacation in Montenegro, due to extremely poor conditions and lousy service at high cost [basically, the Russians simply told the truth].

The story about attempted coup is a "false flag" operation, excuse to push Montenegro into NATO and encircle Serbia, A NEUTRAL country, B U T, one that has friendly relations with Russia. The coup was never proven and evidence not provided, no persons have been properly prosecuted, and Prime Minister of Montenegro visited Serbia and met with alleged "mastermind" of the coup, just hours after arrest, turned from "terrorist" agent of Russia into "protected witness". Rumors flying around are that he got paid several hundred EUR for this stunt.
The weapons to be used? Slingshots? No armor vests, no guns, rifles, grenades, sniper rifles, IED, you name it...
Slingshots were to be used to arrest, later assassinate prime minister and take over the parliament.

Despite this, people demand referendum to be organized in the country. However, because of huge anti-nato feeling in the country, referendum [as a democratic tool of a democratic country] has been severely denied, and will take place in parliament, where vote will take place. They just need 50%+1 of votes, and opposition party has been blackmailed or corrupted, so they will have to vote in favor.

The country that has political assassinations, human trafficking, weapons and cigarettes smuggling and financial ties to ISIL, should not have a place in NATO-OTAN.

All you have to do is read Article 10 and requirements for ascension, and you will see that Montenegro does not qualify.

As far as paying is concerned, Montenegro has no resources to pay. Bank loans and IMF/WB have to be taken to plug in holes in the budget. Huge number live below poverty line.

What Rand Paul has said is true. All it takes is, maybe 30 minutes of research. He knows what's up.
