    Paul to serve as top Republican on Senate oversight committee

    Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) announced Thursday that he will take over as the top Republican on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee next year, opting not to become the ranking member on the Senate Health Committee, where he also serves as a senior member.

    The Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee is the Senate’s chief oversight committee, which will give Paul broad jurisdiction over federal departments and agencies.

    Had Republicans won the Senate majority in last week’s elections, Paul could have spearheaded Senate investigations of the Biden administration.

    The committee has authority to receive referrals on all legislation related to the national archives, the census, the federal civil service, the organization of the executive branch and the U.S. Postal Service.

    “The Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee’s mission of oversight and investigations is critical to Congress reasserting itself, and as ranking member, I look forward to continuing the storied history of this committee’s leadership in consequential bipartisan oversight and investigations,” Paul said in a statement.

    Hmmm. Would McConnell give Rand a promotion in order to protect Fauci (in the Senate Health Committee)?
    "Foreign aid is taking money from the poor people of a rich country, and giving it to the rich people of a poor country." - Ron Paul
    "Beware the Military-Industrial-Financial-Pharma-Corporate-Internet-Media-Government Complex." - B4L update of General Dwight D. Eisenhower
    "Debt is the drug, Wall St. Banksters are the dealers, and politicians are the addicts." - B4L
    "Totally free immigration? I've never taken that position. I believe in national sovereignty." - Ron Paul

    Is it up to him? Senate leaders may appoint senators to committees, but I think everything goes by seniority from there. This slot came open when Portman retired, as Johnson is minority leader of another subcommittee. I think Rand had the choice to assume that role for whichever committee he chose, but not both.

    A clear case of Liberty preserving authoritarianism.

    So few freedom-minded congressmen to go around.

    We need a Rand or a Massie on the chair of EVERY committee.

    This should be interesting.

    My prediction is that Paul will do one of two things: go with the flow, in which case nothing good will happen, or become a pariah among the other committee members in which case nothing good will happen.

    I don't see this as making any substantive difference in American reality. Once again I hope to be proven wrong.

    "Government" represents not an entity in sť, but a mob of fellow humans with no more authority to act as bosses, than do you.

    We get what we tolerate and we deserve what we get precisely because we tolerate it.

    Weakmen are the rule, Freemen the exception.

    Convincing the world he didn't exist was the Devil's second greatest trick; the first was convincing us that God didn't exist.

    Speaking of Fauci, I've recently heard that he has a "partner". Is he homosexual? "Partner" seems their favorite phony baloney euphemism for "buttsex affiliate".
