Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is slamming Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), the GOP chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, for contradicting direct orders from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on the Russia investigation and issuing a subpoena of Donald Trump, Jr., despite McConnell’s statement that the case is closed.
Breaking: No Senate Intelligence Committee Republicans Publicly Stand Up for Richard Burr’s Rogue Donald Trump Jr. Subpoena.
Apparently the Republican chair of the Senate Intel Committee didn’t get the memo from the Majority Leader that this case was closed… https://t.co/jvV5PIX266

Burr, as Breitbart News and other outlets reported late Wednesday, has issued a subpoena of Trump, Jr., which the president’s eldest son is electing to rebuff despite Trump, Jr.’s history of open cooperation on the Russia investigation. Trump, Jr., has been repeatedly cleared, as has the president himself. Continue reading HERE.

Thank you, Ted Yoho for voting NO on the sickening Omnibus spending bill. You’ve proven time and time again that you truly represent We the People. It is sad that so many Republicans? sold us out and voted for this liberty-killing disaster.
Former rep Tom Tancredo (R CO) said it well earlier today: “Congress has adopted a 2016 federal budget that makes it official: The Republican Party and the Democrat Party have merged.”
And to those who supported Paul Ryan (T* WI) for Speaker, I have one question: How is that working out for you? Here’s the link to the complete House roll call vote. And if anybody’s wondering how Marco voted in the Senate: Don’t worry, he didn’t vote.
What do you give a billionaire who has everything and is running for president.
The Omnibus spending bill in Congress is over 2,000 pages and spends another $1.1 trillion we don’t have. A handful of members of Congress and their staffs, the White House and insider lobbyists wrote it over the past six weeks, and outside this small circle, no one had seen it until Wednesday.
In other words, business-as-usual in Washington again. Merry Christmas, Donald Trump.
Americans are sick and tired of the way Washington operates. Outsiders like Trump, Cruz, Carson and Paul are polling at two-thirds of the Republican presidential primary voters. Regardless of how reliable you believe the polling is, there is no doubt: Republicans voters are looking to change the Washington status quo.
In 2014, Americans entrusted Republicans with Senate and House majorities to stop the Obama agenda, but Republicans refused to get in the driver’s seat of Congress. Instead, they offer this back-room, bloated bill to hike spending by another $50 Billion. It is strongly supported by Obama, Pelosi, and Reid – and strongly opposed by nearly every major segment of the Republican Party. Continue reading at breitbart.com.
Mark Levin chats with Sean Hannity about the timidity of the establishment Republican Party and their refusal to stand against the Democrats. Levin adds that the only true conservative presidents in the last 100 years were Calvin Coolidge and Ronald Reagan and that the other Republican “leaders” have merely built on top of what the Left has created. He then went on to talk about the establishment’s love for Common Core and open borders. Leven went on to say that “…We need principled Conservatives and that people under 50 in this country have never had an opportunity to actually vote for a Conservative president…” And that he thinks “…it’s up to us and millions of others in our generation to give them the opportunity. And that’s exciting and invigorating to support somebody not because you want to stop the democrats, but because you really believe in what they are saying…” He then went on to say “…that a Conservative candidate will in fact reignite the excitement of the Reagan Democrats and others.”
They went on to talk about how both the left and right have attacked Conservatives at every turn. Levin talked about the Bush operatives, both Jeb and George, and the Karl Rove operatives using super PACS to trash the new Conservatives who are trying to break through. He said that “…We Conservatives, we Constitutionalists, will never have an opportunity to beat the Democrats unless we bust through, muscle through the Republican Establishment that despises us. People need to remember, particularly young people out there: They tried to stop Reagan; the Bush family tried to stop Reagan; the Republican Establishment tried to stop Reagan. There would have been no Reagan had they succeeded. And we talk about the next Reagan. Look, it doesn’t matter if we have the next Reagan, we need the next fresh faced Conservative, who will connect with the American people, but we’re not going to have that chance as long as we keep getting these long in the tooth, dug in Republicans, these corporatists who are perfectly happy with big government as long as they’re running it.”
In the final portion of the segment Levin and Hannity discussed President Obama’s mishandling of the negotiations with Iran and how he is succeeding in taking this country down. Levin said that it is up to “…People like us, and the Republican Party and Conservatives to try and stop him and then when he’s out of office to try and rebuild what’s left of our Republic.”
Mark Levin is a Constitutional scholar, a former official in the Reagan Justice Department and a radio talk show host.
