Rand Paul Picks Up Important Endorsement for President

The 2012 election was a lot of fun to watch for the endorsements. Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine endorsed Rick Santorum, Gary Busey endorsed Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney bagged Christine O’Donnell (in a manner of speaking). But Rand Paul has picked up an important endorsement for 2016:

Paul has appeared a number of times on Jones’s program and has said he relies on the “Infowars” host for information on the Bilderbergers and the “people who are promoting this globalist agenda,” so it came as no surprise when Jones endorsed him for president yesterday, citing their years of friendship.

Jones’ endorsement came after an interview with the senator’s father, former Rep. Ron Paul, who warned of an imminent economic collapse and foreign calamities.

“Rand Paul is the best,” Jones said after the interview concluded. “I trust him. I’ve known him for 19 years and he’s the guy for president.”

Jones also had an idea for the candidate Paul should pick as his running mate: Sen. Ted Cruz.

“Ted Cruz will make a good VP,” Jones said. “I’m telling you, Ted Cruz is getting more aggressive. That’s why, in polls, he’s now number one. In real polls, Ted Cruz has now taken the lead because he’s being aggressive and that’s what people want.”

A Rand Paul/Ted Cruz ticket would be a lot of fun, but completely incompatible. They disagree on too much to be a workable relationship. And getting the endorsement of conspiracy huckster Alex Jones doesn’t exactly help Paul’s credibility any.

    This Paul-Jones endorsement is just a false flag attack by Hillary. Suck irony. Classic leftist/Marxist tactics!!

    Doesn’t Alex Jones know that Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are in on it? Or does he know, but he’s in on it too? What are we supposed to believe when even the people we believe in can’t be believed?!!!

  • raven

    Alex Jones is on the far reaches of the US lunatic fringe. Which is saying a lot since we have the largest and weirdest lunatic fringes in the Western world.

    An endorsement by Alex Jones should immediately disqualify anyone from any elected office!!!

    I don’t pay much attention to Jones as a waste of time but I’ve never, ever heard him say anything either intelligent or that came true. He’s been predicting doom by “them” for decades and it never happens.

    PS A Rand Paul/Cruz ticket wouldn’t work. Ted Cruz is a power mad kook of dubious santity. He would demand a Ted Cruz for President with Rand as VP. And if he was VP, Rand Paul should be very careful. It wouldn’t surprise me if President Paul fell down a flight of steps or drowned in the bathtub.

    A Rand Paul/Ted Cruz ticket would be a lot of fun, but completely incompatible.

    I first read that as “but completely incomprehensible”. It seemed to make more sense that way.

  • John Pieret

    Ted Cruz will make a good VP

    Having him holding the bucket of spit would be better than having him in the Senate. But then we’d have to keep Paul in the deepest, safest place on Earth with 24/7 medical attention to make sure he didn’t so much as catch cold.

  • Loqi

    Any word on who the Gumbys have endorsed? I’d trust their political insights over those of Jones.

    infowars. Kook June, 2009

    The eugenicists are back with their latest program to kill an untold number of people under the cover of the “swine flu pandemic.” If you line up for a vaccination contaminated with mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde and other toxins — and a possible agent for future cancers designed to decimate world population — you need to have your head examined.

    However, as Ron Paul indicates, you may not have a choice — the government may force you to choose between a toxic vaccine and a FEMA camp.

    From Jones’s website.

    DId you know the Swine flu vaccine is part of a UN depopulation program. It will kill billions of people!!! And you will either get it or get sent to a FEMA concentration camp, according to congressman Ron Paul.

    Of course, this was written in 2009. None of it ever happened. The Swine flu vaccine was a technological triumph that saved tens of thousands of lives.

    I’m not aware that anything Alex Jones ever said either made sense or came to happen.

    and the “people who are promoting this globalist agenda,”

    The Globalist Agenda is a lot like the Gay Agenda. It really doesn’t exist.

    It has a lot in common with the monsters in your closet or under your bed.

    PS I’m feeling left out here. I suppose I’ll have to invent an Agenda…..I’ve got it. The Pagan Agenda. So far it is to have a few cats, drink white wine, and go to a lot of parties.

    A Rand Paul/Ted Cruz ticket would be a lot of fun, but completely incompatible. They disagree on too much to be a workable relationship.

    If they disagree that much, then why are they working together in the same party? Your pretense that Rand Paul is in any way different from, independent of, or a real alternative to, the standard Republican line has gone from laughably naïve to gratingly insulting.

    Rand Paul is nothing but a con-artist, no better than any other con-artist in his party; and when you give him unwarranted attention in posts like this, you participate in his con-game.

    Raging Bee “If they disagree that much, then why are they working together in the same party?”

    Because they agree on the important stuff, like getting theirs and not letting you have any.

  • zenlike

    Raging Bee,

    I agree. On the points that in the end actually matter for them (eg pleasing the 0,01%) their viewpoints are exactly the same. The viewpoints on which they differ don’t actually matter to them. They are just used to market the GOP to different groups, it is a matter of ‘branding’. Yes, Rand might sometimes stand up for some liberties, and he is tolerated as such because whatever he says, in the end his single voice doesn’t matter. And when push comes to shove he fully toes the GOP party line.

    It’s advertising, that’s all.

    @Loqi

    I understand that Rand Paul has a photo op scheduled. He’s going to stand in a stream.

    BTW, thanks for the image. I now know how his opthalmalogical practice ran. “Doctor, I have conjunctivitis.” “Oh! Oh! It will have to come out! I’m going to operate! Nurse! Nurse!”

    It’s the Big Tent theory of political parties. Any nut is welcome as long as they hate gays, Muslims and liberals.

    What president would want a self-promoting, back-stabbing asshole like Cruz serving with him?

    Now you’re just being ridiculous! You forgot gynomericans, The Poors, “urban” people (*wink wink*), Hispanics, scientists, teachers, unions…

    But is it a YELLOW fringe? Because that means it’s an Admiralty Court. Or something.

  • eric

    Ed, I’m disappointed in you. Alex Jones is a HUGE letdown after your above-the-fold build-up of rock stars. I was expecting it to be Ted Nugent or Justin Bieber or someone like that. Don’t do it, man. Don’t be that “details at 11” station that makes us watch in anticipation of a big name but then drops an Alex Jones-level dookie on us.

  • raven

    Of course!!!

    Paganism is a huge tent. As the Wiccans say, “Do what you want as long as it doesn’t hurt anybody.”

    I thought when I became a Pagan we were supposed to paint ourselves blue and dance naked around a fire in an oak grove at midnight. Hasn’t happened yet.

    Woad, the blue dye plant, doesn’t grow here.

    The parks are closed at night.

    And given the usual drought, no one would dare build a fire in an oak grove most of the year. You would end up starting a huge wildfire and burning who knows how many thousands of acres.

    So, yeah, Rand Paul’s a write-off. (Not that he wasn’t before. It’s just extra confirmation.)

  • pocketnerd

    “It’s hard to find politicians as completely delusional as I am,” Jones reportedly said. “But Rand Paul’s reality-denial credentials are enough to satisfy even diehard foil-hat fruitcakes like me.”

  • http://artk.typepad.com ArtK

    It’s always a good plan to tie up the batshit-insane contingent’s votes as early as possible.

  • lorn

    you can tell a lot about a person’s friends and enemies. PZ is stalked by idiots bent on ruining him for not agreeing with their Biblical/ biological/ anti-evolution rants, Rand is friends with idiots who think 9/11 was a false-flag attack because they are both worried about Bilderbergers trying to take over the world. There are many ways of parsing those associations but both cases the associations tell you something about the people involved.
