Ron Paul Defends Rand Pausing Ukraine Funding Frenzy

(Tony Sifert, Headline USA) Ron Paul has defended his son, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., for delaying the Biden administration’s ability to send $40 billion dollars in military aid to Ukraine.

“We cannot save Ukraine by dooming the U.S. economy,” Rand Paul argued in his May 12 speech.

“With a $30 trillion debt, America can’t afford to be the world’s policeman,” he continued. “The U.S. is trying to recover from the $1.6 trillion we spent on wars in the Middle East, not to mention the $5 trillion borrowed for COVID.”

Paul went on to introduce an amendment that would allow an inspector general to audit the Ukraine expenditure.

After all hell broke loose in Washington, with Sens. Chuck Schumer, D-NY, and Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., attacking Paul in the press, Paul’s father, Ron, used his weekly column to defend his son’s decision.

“[Rand] wanted at least a bit of oversight on the nearly $50 billion in total that Washington has sent to what Transparency International deems one of the most corrupt countries on earth,” Paul wrote. “Is that too much to ask?”

Paul answered his own question.

“For Washington, the answer is ‘yes’,” he wrote. “Washington doesn’t want to know, and, more importantly, Washington doesn’t want us to know.”

The bipartisan fury displayed by warmongering Schumer and McConnell proved the former presidential candidate’s point.

According to Igor Bobic of the Huffington Post, while McConnell gave a “head nod” to Schumer after Paul’s objection, he “walked out of the chamber without a glance at Paul.”

“Neo-conservatism knows no party,” Townhall’s Kenny Cody wrote.

“Paul stood up against this rule from the establishment side of both parties and represented a majority of modern conservative opposition to that idea.”
