LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:


 By Kody Fairfield

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) accused fellow Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) of working for Russian President Vladimir Putin, following Paul’s vote to block the consideration of a treaty that would allow Montenegro into the United Nations, reports the Washington Examiner.

“If there’s objection, you are achieving the objectives of Vladimir Putin,” McCain warned. “If they object, they are now carrying out the desires and ambitions of Vladimir Putin, and I do not say that lightly.”

McCain tried to call up the treaty and warned that anyone blocking it would be helping Russia maintain its influence over the small country across the Adriatic Sea from Italy, reports the Examiner.

When McCain attempted to ask for consent to call up a resolution that would have the U.S. ratify the treaty if approved, Paul was quick to object.

“I object,” Paul said before quickly leaving the Senate. Paul’s move shocked McCain, who said Paul didn’t appear to have any good reason for objecting, says the Examiner.

That is really remarkable,” McCain said. “That a senator, blocking a treaty that is supported by the overwhelming number, perhaps 98 at least of his colleagues, would come to the floor and object, and walk away.”

“The only conclusion you can draw when he walks away is he has no argument to be made,” he said.

“The senator from Kentucky is now working for Vladimir Putin,” McCain concluded.
Sen. Rand Paul’s Press Secretary did officially respond to McCain’s statements, telling The Libertarian Republic that the Kentucky Senator has explained:
“Currently, the United States has troops in dozens of countries and is actively fighting in Iraq, Syria, Libya, and Yemen (with the occasional drone strike in Pakistan).  In addition, the United States is pledged to defend 28 countries in NATO.  It is unwise to expand the monetary and military obligations of the United States given the burden of our $20 trillion debt.”

    We all know that John McCain has been working with Isis to make sure Christians throughout the Middle East are murdered. But Rand Paul working for Putin?

    Well, it’s a step up for the US Senate to have at least one Senator who doesn’t want to kowtow to Islamofascism.

    Every little bit helps and is much appreciated.

      Montenegro has a primarily eastern orthodox and catholic population, so I am confused by your point

        Don’t let John know that or he’ll go find some anti-Christian rebels somewhere and send them a weapons’ shipment that’d gag an elephant.

    Wow thats laughable, this has to be an article from The Onion.

    Um, it’s not joining the UN that is under debate. It’s Montenegro joining NATO.

    But the Washington Examiner, from which this article was taken, made the same error.

    John McCain – the man who graduated at the bottom of his class at the US Naval Academy. Who wrecked so many US Navy planes, some showboating, that any other Naval Airman would have been grounded. Yet he went on to fly in Vietnam. Got shot down and squealed his guts to the Viet Cong giving not only ingress and egress information for more Navy fliers to be shot down then went on to make propaganda broadcasts for the Viet Cong.

    Yes, that John McCain. And let us not forget his daddy. Admiral John McCain who had support recalled when Israel attacked the unarmed intelligence ship the USS Liberty. Letting it go through nearly a days worth of repeated attacks without any support from the US Fleet in the region. With many sailors dead. Only through the heroic efforts of the Liberty crew were they able to save the ship. A cover-up of a scale unheard of in our nation going all the way up to POTUS Johnson. We know now the truth from JAG Capt Ward Boston signed affidavit on the affair.
