  1. Why would any Dem in the House want to be the impeachment trial manager representing the Dem House? It is a career buster — let Pelosi, Schiff, and Nadler be the managers.

  2. Mr. Paul, you voted for giving them billions without a treaty under Obama. So who are you to criticize? This BS was done on your watch. I agree with most of your policies but not this one.

  3. I’m having some trouble with Fox news these days. Every single story swings around to impeachment. Enough with the impeachment discussion let it go on in the background it’s a partisan stunt stop making it headline news. I’m starting to feel like you’re trying to propagandize me. You guys have been straight up and honest for a while now don’t ruin that streak.

  4. Rand Paul is trying only to project himself that's all. He is not agressive enough to condemn the Democrats sham impeachment agenda

  5. People this is organized crime in the justice people wake-up make these satan cockroaches be made to take a lier test to prove what they say and do

  6. Sanctions are hurting the people and it’s making them turn on their leaders. Killing Soleimani weakened the power the Iranian government had on its people. He wasn’t their great leader. They were most likely afraid of him. Thus the protest against their government.

  7. Iran was not keeping their agreement.

    There was a best opportunity for conversation,

    ..only Pelosi stood in front of the flag and made her big announcement of Impeachment.

    It was during important U.N. meetings.

    ..and so, Rouhani talked to France.

    Pelosi?

    Off camera, Pelosi said, “It is a narrative”.

    Now, Pelosi times her next big drama during Davos.

    Haven’t you noticed, Pelosi and Schumer ramp up accusations whenever there is something important happening?

    They deliberatrly interfere.

    Why?

    Democrats prefer bribes and kickbacks from bribes, whether it is international “aid” or an international “agreement” or local GAO contracts.

    They are criminals, and some RINO’s have joined in.

    ..and they could be afraid “talks” will disclose their criminal activities.

    I think Kerry should get full extent of the law for Logan Act violations, during all this smokescreen for Democrat Party leadership crimes.

  8. Dear Rand:

    America, indeed, has a 'carrot' and a 'stick' to deal with Iran.

    The 'carrot' is we're not going to beat the hell out of them with the 'stick.'

  9. I usually agree with Rand Paul but not this time, I can't believe he is that naive to think these terrorist where adhering to the agreement. Hey Rand, I have some property I want to sell, it connects Brooklyn to Manhattan. Rand Paul the new Neville Chamberlain of our time.

  10. Let's make a deal with Iran, first on the list, let's get them to promise that they won't break the deal. That'll stop em.

  11. You can't deal with dishonest dictatorships like Iran. Sanctions don't harm the ruling class, they just starve the masses.

  12. Ukraine Flight 952 from Iran. "NO NOT UNINTENTIONAL" IT WAS INTENTIONAL. The question is why spin the lie? The Word Unintentional was first announced by President Trump before Iran even claimed it to be so. WHY? It is a lie fed to the stupid gullible Media by Trump. Why did Trump do this? What is his agenda? He could not have known so early on unless he was in Iran and he wasn't. This is blatantly untrue. My fellow Canadians were victims along with all the passengers children and all. I want to know why Trump is walking this Attack back and propagandizing a unintentional and USA is quiet on this tragedy. Also investigate who did not board that plane. Who were the two people? Could they have known? Were they American, Diplomats, regime supporters or Iranians? Why are none of you asking these important questions? The UN also pushed out UNINTENTIONAL? THIS IS FISHY. Then we have our Prime Ministr Justin Trudeau pushing the UNINTENTIONAL out to the media. This is before they had even investigated. Look at NATO, The Devils in the UN, The politicians deceiving the public. You're not asking the correct questions. WHY?

  13. Yea because Iran is a terrible regime and no one should be talking with them. You’re a moron for advocating to a government who just lied to the world about shooting down a plane. POS

  14. Rouhani needs a Hellfire MIssile fired directly up his Arsehole, that way he can land on Tehran Airport Runways … 5,6,7 and 10 all at the same time … then he can spend eternity with his beloved brother Solimani (Hell that is)… Then Iran can be FREE !!!

  15. NO AGREEMENTS; THEY DON'T WORK!!! THERE WAS AN AGREEMENT, BUT THEY CONDUCTED
    PROGRESSIVELY UNDER THE TABLE!!! THERE WILL BE A ALL OUT WAR WITH IRAN AND ISRAEL
    WILL BE INVOLVED, SO WILL SOUDI ARABIA AND RUSSIA!!! CHINA TALKS CRAP, BUT THEY
    DON'T GIVE A CRAP!!! THEY JUST WANT TO SELL AND SURVIVE!!! RUSSIA AND IRAN ARE
    ON THEIR OWN!!! SO, THIS IS IT; USA AND NATO VERSUS RUSSIA AND IRAN!!! AFTERWARDS
    THE SCORE WILL BE SETTLED!!! WE NEED PUTIN IN THE MIDDLE OF IT AS BEFORE HE
    PARTS FOR RETIREMENT!!!

  16. If the President found not guilty would Nancy reside ? why bite one an others here’s why can they Dem protect Americans people for safety’s for once’s why ! Dem always agree with enemies and brings ours qualities of life down to the drain Dem only care for theirs voted and sad powers of none sense

  17. Hey Rand, the phone lines go both ways. Iran never wants to talk, they just want to hate. If they want to talk to us they have our phone number. Rand Paul is becoming goofier than his father. If Rand Paul was president right now rather than Donald Trump, you wouldn't see all the great things going on as they are right now. I doubt the economy would be as good and our enemies wouldn't fear us right now either.
    Thank God Donald Trump Is Our President

  18. The liars should go to jail !!!!!!!!!! And punishment should be applied for the people running the KANGAROO COURT !!!!!!!!

  19. rand paul is dreaming, he knows nothing, our military knows it all, and if they say the Iranians cant be trusted, then im with our military !! I hate these politicians that think they know it all., I don't care what he thinks

  20. The Tor-M1 has eight missiles, if it was on auto and the crew was outside the vehicle, this was done and over before they realized what was happening.

    02- Because the transponder was turned off, the aircraft, uniquely among the many flights approaching, was identified by the Tor-M1 integrated transport, launch, and radar unit, as hostile.

    If the crew was taking a break and had the unit set on “auto” then the system would have fired a missile as soon as the “hostile” aircraft was in range, never mind that it was moving very slowly, was on a known international commercial trajectory, and no incoming missiles had been reported by the Iranian system of intercept radars with longer-range vision.

    There are reports from the IRGC that communications “jamming” was experienced, this could have been intentional, to eliminate access to contradictory information.

    I personally do not believe the crew was alert and watching their screens because there is no possible confusion between a very high-speed high angle incoming cruise missile and a very slow speed low angle commercial aircraft limping back to its point of origin.

    03- Two missiles appear to have been fired, not one.

    The first took out one of the two engines. A similar aircraft successfully landed once before, in Baghdad, after precisely the same mishap.

    A second missile was launched, perhaps also automatically (if the crew was smoking all of this would have happened in 8 to ten seconds before they could scramble back into their places and shut down the system), and this is what brought the aircraft down.

    The Tor-M1 has eight missiles, if it was on auto and the crew was outside the vehicle, this was done and over before they realized what was happening.

  21. President Trump did not make a COMMENT about Iran never having a nuclear weapons as long as he's president. It was a stern DECLARATION that he made before even greeting the crowd verbally. After the DECLARATION he said Good Morning.

  22. Zionist-controlled mainstream and social media puppets.

    What is missing at this time is an international network able to communicate the truth to the American public generally, and President Donald Trump specifically.

    Our President is being lied to every day by his “minders” from the National Security Council, by the West Point 1986 Mafia, by the Director of the CIA, and by the Zionist-sponsored neo-conservatives including their Iranian wing.

    My recent letter to President Donald Trump will probably not be delivered to him (nor the book that accompanied it) unless the Supreme Leader or his loyal President, or President Vladimir Putin, were to read the letter and ask President Trump what he thinks of the idea of a US Open Source Agency matched by Chinese, Iranian, Russian, and other similar organizations, all designed to educate the public and overcome the lies now so easily carried along by the Zionist-controlled mainstream and social media puppets.

    An Open Source Agency in Istanbul (or Cairo) that has the complete support of China, Egypt, Iran, Russia, and Turkey, among others, is the fastest, cheapest way of changing the balance of power in the Middle East and advancing our shared goal of eliminating the invented, criminal, apartheid, genocidal state of Israel. I salute the Supreme Leader’s vital distinction between the state of Israel which must be eliminated and the preservation of Jewish rights in Palestine.

    One significant mission of the regional OSA might be the translation into Arabic, Chinese, Farsi, Russian, and Turkish of key books such as the four that are reviewed below.

  23. They have been breaking agreements for thousands of years. There's that whole covenant thing in the bible…you don't need a carrot with obstinence. Just the stick.

  24. The Israelis are experts at this and have done it before – remember the Russian IL-20 shot down by Syria, the Israelis were using that plane to shield an incoming jet fighter strike.

    Now you have an airliner heading directly for an IRGC site and it’s protective missile batteries, even worse the IRGC were on high alert, expecting a US strike; so when an unidentified aircraft appeared very close to their base, they had only a matter of seconds to decide whether to engage it.

    IRGC Aerospace Commander Hajizadeh’s said a huge ‘anomaly’ impaired Tehran’s air defense system, leading to the impression an enemy plane was approaching a sensitive military center – the root of the subsequent ‘human error’.

    Iran claims the missiles were launched by an individual who was out of radio contact with his commander and “panicked” upon seeing the fast-moving object on radar.

    The fact that the IRGC operators experienced a communication failure at the precise moment the plane appeared on their radar makes it clear that cyber attacks were also carried out against Iranian command & control systems.

    With no time to delay and no way to consult senior commanders, the operators had to consider the plane heading straight towards them as a military threat and they took the decision to engage the plane and shoot it down.

    There you have it, a couple of hacks was all it took.

    The Israelis are experts at this and have done it before – remember the Russian IL-20 shot down by Syria, the Israelis were using that plane to shield an incoming jet fighter strike.

  25. Leave it alone Paul.
    Let Trump do his job.
    We can see he knows what he's doing even if your field of vision is too narrow to see it.

  26. Boeing Crash, New Footage shows Two Missiles. Why Canada Afraid of Black-Box Secrets?

    Canada, France, and US have declined Iran's request to help extract data from the black box of the Ukrainian plane! Why?

    A new video, recorded by a surveillance camera, released by an Iranian media and published by Sputnik International confirms that the Ukrainian plane shot down in Iran on 8 January was hit with two missiles fired at 23 seconds apart.

    The footage was posted before from New York Times that has verified his authenticity.

    The cruise rockets would have been launched from an IRGC Aerospace military site approximately eight miles (12 km) from the plane. But in the meantime the question concerning the black box of the crashed Boeing opens.

    «Canada, France, and the US have declined Iran’s request to help to extract data from the black box of the Ukrainian plane which suffered an unfortunate accident on Wednesday», Head of the Accident Investigation Board of the Civil Aviation Organization Hassan Rezayeefar announced on Monday.

    According to the Iranian media FarsNews, Rezayeefar said Iran has asked Canada, France, and the US to bring their software and hardware equipment to Tehran to extract data of the black box of the Ukrainian plane that was downed in an air defense incident on the Southwestern outskirt of Tehran on Wednesday, but they have denied Iran’s request.

    .

  27. Boeing 737-800 fo PS752 Ukrainian International Airlines falling down near Tehran in the first hours of the night on January 8 and died 176 persons: 82 Iranians, 63 Canadians, 11 Ukrainians (all the crew) 10 Swedish, then Afghani’s, Germans, British.

    For many days different countries asked for obtaining the black-box to understand the reason for the crash in the flight machine records. On Saturday, January, 12 Iranian authorities admitted that the plane was shot down by an unintentionally launching of air defense missiles.

    Terrible human mistakes! IRGC Aerospace commander explained that the operator in charge of manual control has had a few seconds for choosing how to do when saw in the radar the unidentified object.

    He couldn’t contact the Boeing pilots and the ranking superior too for an unexpected interruption of communications. He decided, wrong, to shoot two missiles, maybe soviet-made Tor M1, that blew up beside the plane, as typical for cruise rockets for doing more damage to the alleged hostile flying object that supposed was a jet foe or a missile.

    Now Sputnik International spreads footage taking fro an Iranian media that shows the double impact, but in the meantime, Canada, the nation that suffered the more important number of victims (after Iran) refused to help Iran to discover the black-boxes secrets. Why???

    About this strange “fire-friend” from the Iranian air defense system to the civilian flight surfaced many different hypotheses, moreover the simple human mistake.
    .

  28. Someone suggests human sabotage inside Pasdaran by an official corrupted from Us intelligence, others suspected a cybernetic or electronic disturbing to the Boeing transponder for hijacking it and hiding his identity to the air defense radar.

    Or much more an attack with a jammer to the communications of IRGC Aerospace for causing the terrible mistake.

    This is the reason because it’s very strange the refusing by Canada to help Iran to discover the black-box secrets.

    Iran offered Ukraine, Sweden, Britain, Canada, and the US to send the black box to an impartial laboratory and France was the country all five countries agreed on» the official added.

    Black box recordings of the Ukrainian airliner will be downloaded in France, head of the accident investigation board of the Civil Aviation Organization of Iran announced on Saturday.

    Iran’s revenge starts from Qom. Thanks to Fordow’s nuclear bunker plant

    He added that although Iran made use of all its facilities to examine the content of the black box inside the country, the efforts yielded no good result. It will be sent to France so that its black box is downloaded there to avoid any damage to it.

  29. Why Canada seems to be afraid to discover black-box secrets?

    As Rezayeefar said, Iran and France have an agreement to download planes’ black boxes. However, all those decisions have been taken before the Saturday statement of the General Staff of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Armed Forces about the plane crash, the official noted.

    Therefore, it is necessary to understand if this decision to entrust the decoding of the black box to a foreign NATO country such as France is still in the interest of Tehran, which is beginning to suspect that there have been disturbing actions in air communications.

    But the riddle remains: why Canada seems to be afraid to discover black-box secrets?
