Discrimination against minority political parties is a real issue.

Ron Paul: Calls for Ebola travel ban ‘politically motivated’ – The Hill

Former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) appeared to split with his own son, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), dismissing calls for a ban on travel to Ebola-stricken nations as “politically motivated.”

"Right now I would say a travel ban is politically motivated more than something done for medical purposes," Paul said in an interview with former Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-Ariz.) Monday on Newsmax TV.

ADVERTISEMENT

He noted that there had been a single Ebola death in the U.S., pointing out that the flu had a much higher death toll.

That stance puts him at odds with his Sen. Paul, a potential 2016 GOP presidential contender, who is open to restrictions on travel from West African countries battling the deadly disease. 

Earlier this month, the senator said that "a temporary suspension of flights should be definitely considered," in an interview on CNN.

Travel restrictions on nations affected by the Ebola outbreak are favored by 73 House members and 15 senators, including some Democrats, according to The Hill's tally.

Asked if he shared his son's opinion on Ebola, the elder Paul said, "probably not exactly, but I haven't dissected every single thing."

It’s not the first time the father-son pair have split over the response to the disease. After the first case of Ebola was diagnosed in the U.S. early this month, the elder Paul warned against an "overreaction." Meanwhile his son said the Obama administration was "underplaying" the threat posed by the virus.

On Sunday, Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) accused the junior Kentucky senator and ophthalmologist of "politicizing" Ebola. Wasserman Schultz said Rand Paul is "a doctor who should know better" after he suggested that a patient could infect someone standing three feet away.

Ron Paul defended his son, dismissing the DNC chief’s criticism.

"I'd like to think that one was a medical opinion and expressed in sincerity and [the] other was pure demagoguery coming from a politician who pretends that she knows how to run the Democratic Party," he said.

Ron Paul Tells Dumb Son To Shut His Big Stupid Yap – Wonkette (satire)

Grab your popcorn, it’s time for another round of Republican Daddy Issues:

Ron Paul, who is a medical doctor, pointed out that an estimated 3,000 to 49,000 people died every year from influenza, but no one was considering a travel ban to stop the flu from spreading.

“So right now, I would say a travel ban is politically motivated more than something done for medical purposes,” he concluded.

Aw, heck, that almost sounds reasonable. Except that Ron Paul, the former doctor and former member of the House and former laugh riot during the last Republican presidential primary season, is pretty much a nobody now, so who cares what he thinks? Besides, his son — who is also A Doctor and A Wingnut and gets to eat lunch at the big boys’ table in the Senate cafeteria — has an entirely different medical opinion.

“It’s not like AIDS,” he explained. “AIDS is difficult to transmit. You’re not going to go into a cocktail party and have someone cough and get AIDS. If you are in a cocktail party with someone with Ebola and they cough, you are at risk for getting Ebola.”

The nutjob doesn’t fall far from the tree, and we wouldn’t trust either Dr. Paul to treat our pet rock, let alone give advice on how to stop the spread of Ebola. But we sure do plan to enjoy the hell out of watching junior run for president, while his dad tells him, “Hush, now, Rand, go back to sleep, there’s no Ebola under the bed.” How ever will Rand respond? We’re hoping he steals the car and stays out all night and then stumbles home drunk and maybe breaks something and yells at his kooky dad, “You’re not the boss of me anymore!” Seems like the kind of thing the senator from Aqua Buddha would do.

Ben & Jerry’s is so mean:

Lianne and Brian Kowiak said last month that they stumbled upon the Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor and were shocked to read the label. Their 19-year-old son Harrison tragically died during a hazing incident six years ago, so when they saw the name of the ice cream, it made them feel uncomfortable.

“I saw there was a flavor named ‘Hazed & Confused’ and I just paused and I was really upset and shocked when I saw it,” said Lianne. “When I saw this name, ‘Hazed & Confused,’ it frankly just struck a nerve with us.”

We have all the not-snark sympathy in the world for the Kowiaks and their loss. But taking offense at the name of an ice cream inspired by the name of a movie and also an ingredient in the ice cream? Come on, now. What next — trigger warnings in the frozen food section at the supermarket? While we do not personally know the owners of Ben & Jerry’s, we feel pretty certain they’re not trying to personally offend anyone. They’re just slinging some ice cream.

Republican Pat Roberts, the senator who represents Kansas but lives in Virginia, also has an affinity for the Ukraine. Or at least, that’s where he keeps his field of sunflowers:

The national website Buzzfeed has revealed that the Pat Roberts for Senate campaign has been using stock photos of sunflowers from the Ukraine, not Kansas, for its public-relations materials.

The photos, traced back to Ukrainian photographer Mykola Velychko, appear at the top of Roberts’ campaign Web page, his Facebook page and campaign news releases. [...]

Roberts’ campaign manager, Corry Bliss, sought to downplay the “oops” factor involved in using flowers from Ukraine to represent Kansas’ iconic crop.

“Is this a joke?” Bliss told Buzzfeed. “It’s obviously a stock image used by our digital firm to reflect that Kansas is the Sunflower State. But given the many serious issues facing our country right now, I doubt voters care about this silly line of attack by Greg Orman and his liberal allies.”

There is absolutely nothing Kansas about the senator “from Kansas.” Not even his stock photos. Please mock accordingly.

Ron Paul on Monday said that calls for a ban on travel from West African countries affected by Ebola are primarily “politically motivated” — just days after his son Sen. Rand Paul announced his support for one.

Appearing on Newsmax TV’s “America’s Forum” with former Arizona Republican Rep. J.D. Hayworth, Ron Paul said he wouldn’t support a travel ban. “Right now, I would say a travel ban is politically motivated more than something done for medical purposes,” the former Texas congressman and three-time presidential candidate told Hayworth.

Rand Paul, the Kentucky senator openly considering a 2016 presidential bid, said on a radio show last week that a temporary travel ban is “only reasonable,” BuzzFeed noted Monday.

(Also on POLITICO: Rubio to introduce travel ban bill)

Many lawmakers and elected officials, mostly Republicans, have called for the Obama administration to ban travel to the U.S. from West Africa, the region where Ebola is having the heaviest impact. On Monday, GOP Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida announced he would be introducing legislation to create a temporary ban on new visas from the affected West African countries. The White House and many public health experts have pushed back against a ban, saying it would be ineffective and potentially harmful and make it more difficult to root out the disease for good.

Ron Paul, a favorite within the libertarian community, said the death of Thomas Eric Duncan, who died earlier in October in the U.S. after apparently contracting Ebola in Liberia, was not enough to justify a travel ban. “We’re talking about one person that’s died, and we want to close down the world travel system, and yet right now, it doesn’t look anything like that kind of a problem,” he said. He also noted that the expected U.S. death toll for influenza is far higher than that for Ebola.

When asked whether he agreed with his son’s views on Ebola, Ron Paul added: “Probably not exactly, but I haven’t dissected every single thing.”

His comments come after an interview last week with Larry King, in which the former congressman called the response in the U.S. to Ebola “hysterical” and “way overblown.”

Ron Paul: Hillary Clinton would make ‘pretty average, pretty mediocre’ president – Red Alert Politics

Ron Paul

Former presidential candidate and outspoken libertarian Ron Paul thinks Hillary Clinton would make a “pretty mediocre” president.

Paul, who is father to potential presidential candidate Rand Paul, told Larry King in an interview on “PoliticKING” Thursday that Hillary Clinton wouldn’t be a good change — or a change at all — from President Obama if she were to be elected to the Oval Office in 2016.

“I would think she’d be pretty average, pretty mediocre, pretty much for war, pretty much for welfare-ism, pretty much for deficits, pretty supportive of the Federal Reserve and loving the military-industrial complex,” detailed the former presidential candidate and Texas congressman.

“But, that’s what we’ve been having,” Paul added, “so I don’t think she would provide any change whatsoever in a positive sense.”

When asked if Clinton would be “formidable” in her potential bid for president, Paul answered in the affirmative, but emphasized the fact that she won’t be immune to media scrutiny.

“The media love her,” Paul affirmed. “But, she’ll get beat up too.”

Paul’s sentiment about Hillary’s relationship with the media seems generous, especially considering she had reporters at the Clinton Global Initiative event followed to the bathroom. Even former New York Times editor Jill Abramson has complained of Clinton’s “unrealistic” expectations of journalists.

Watch the full interview with Ron Paul below, with the Hillary discussion coming at about 26 minutes.
