Rand Paul Did Not Appear at Denver Event

Rand Paul Joins Ken Cuccinelli At Campaign Rally In Virginia

Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky did not appear in Denver this week for the Colorado Renewal Project's "Rediscovering God in America" event in Westminster, despite widely distributed promotional materials stating that the Kentucky Senator would be in attendance as a "special guest."

Paul was never planning to come to Colorado at all, Paul's press office emailed me Friday, referring to organizers of the event.

"That was an error on their part," wrote Paul spokesperson Sergio Gor.

Paul's visit to Colorado appears to have been organized by evangelical political operative David Lane, who organizes meetings between Republican presidential contenders and pastors in swing states. Lane is associated with the American Renewal Project, which advocates for more involvement by Christians in politics.

Numerous efforts get a comment from Lane or any organizer of the Colorado event were not successful. It was not clear who sponsored Colorado's pastor event this week, but similar events in the past have ties to Colorado for Family Values and the Christian Family Alliance of Colorado.

Paul's visit to Colorado raised eyebrows because Colorado senatorial candidate Cory Gardner has been telling reporters that there is "no federal personhood bill"–and Paul is the unabashed sponsor of a federal personhood bill, called the Life at Conception Act.

Last year, Gardner cosponsored the House version of Paul's legislation, also called the Life at Conception Act, which would ban all abortion, even for rape, as well as common forms of birth control.

Paul appears to have attended one of Lane's conferences for pastors last month in South Carolina, along with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who's been a repeated speaker at Lane's "Pastors and Pews" events this year.

“We have a constituency that we’re mobilizing. My goal is to restore America’s Judeo-Christian heritage and reestablish a Christian culture," Lane told U.S. News' David Catanese in September.

"Huckabee’s done maybe every one," Lane told Catanese. "He’s been in 10 or 11 states with me. But I invite all of them. I’m an honest broker."

    1. Maybe he had a meeting with the folks who publish the "Southern Avenger" to attend.  Or another meet and greet lunch for Rep. Steve "Cantaloupe Calves" King to run in and out of……  You're right though, Zap, he is a nut case (although not quite as nuts as his dad).

       

  1. Paul will not be the GOTP nominee, despite being just another a con-artist clown like the rest of the mentally ill party's confetti-throwing, floppy-shoed, seltzer bottle-packing political geniuses.

    I believe he will attempt a third-party, Ross Perot-like end run after the Teabagger Party gives him the shiv, trying to siphon votes from both parties.

  2. Very likely the victim of both the 'Steve King Syndrome' and the fact the Senator is a co-sponsor of S.583 "The Life at Conception Act".  We wouldn't want any unfortunate slip ups to the media that an actual federal personhood bill exists.

    I will hand it to the Senator from Kentucky, he has the balls to talk truth about the failed 'War on Drugs' which is a problem for the Beauprez crowd Cory is courting given that Beauprez's position is full repeal of our Colorado constitutional amendment.

    Once you understand it from those two perspectives, you can see how terribly problematic it would be for Cory to have the Senator in Colorado ten days before election.

  3. His goal is to what? Rewrite the Bible to include abortion? Rewrite US history to deny the existence of the statements in the Treaty of Tripoli (1797) "As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion…"? 

    Maybe he should just say he wants to create a government based on the fantasies of delusional fruitcakes.
