Rand Paul Tries to Have Abby Martin Fired From RT For Daring To Ask Him Questions


(FEDERALJACK)   Luke Rudkowski talks with Abby Martin of MediaRoots.org and RT about U.S. Senator Rand Paul’s attempt to get her arrested and stripped of her press credentials for asking him tough questions in the Capitol building. A week after our video with Abby Martin came out on YouTube, the RT office, where Abby works, got an ominous phone call from the Senate Media Relations Committee. The Committee was acting on behalf of Rand Paul and threatened both Abby and the entire RT news organization. The threats included ambiguous “charges” for violating the rules of the Committee floor, Abby’s possible arrest and the termination of her and the entire office’s press credentials. After a month of meetings and deliberation, the Senate Media Relations office backed down and did not make good on any of their threats.

  • Why! does she had to put a ton of red lipstick and black eyelash make-up. Spoiled the whole interview. Get a face wash and stop looking like a cheap starlite :^(

  • Rand Paul is not Libertarian. He’s not even a Constitutionalist. My take on this man is he only got there from his Dad’s good name. I’d like to see nasty, dangerous men like him to never see office ever again.

  • Rand is an A-Hole!

  • george you need to get over your superficiality and hear what she says because its pretty alarming and incredible. the outrageous incident is about FREE PRESS/SPEECH not runway model idol.
    this is happening at the United Nations too where Reuters, AFP, Voice of America, Bloomberg are trying to get the only independent reporter Matthew Lee banned from covering the UN. Lee is persistent and also has covered favors that certain correspondents have received from diplomats to give good coverup.

  • Just can’t have the truth. Oh poor America.

  • Surprise. The corrupt prodigal son of Ron Paul, who treacherously played uncorruptible libertarian is simply a remade, self-serving neo-Dixiecrat puppet.

  • The fact that Ron Paul’s son is a fascist is fitting, as free markets always lead to fascism. Some people win in markets, others lose. Once you win a few times, it’s easier to keep on winning, just like in poker. Once you win enough, you can buy the casino and rig the game. THat’s what happens with free/libertarian markets – they’re just an unstable phase before fascism. Our problem isn’t government – our problem is totally corrupted rigged government.

  • Rand Paul didn’t do anything but practice his right to stay silent despite ambush journalism. He’s given plenty of non-corporate interviews explaining his endorsement while voicing support for his father and supporters.
    How exactly does "Senate Media Relations Committee … his name was Mike something" equal Rand Paul? Luke’s a stooge

  • The paulsheep make apologies for their Deity and his only begotten son as they are sold down the river. The pauls are stalking horses for the aristocracy, pushing to remove any and all limits on the rich plutocrats. There is no such thing as a free market. It does not exist and cannot exist anywhere except in someone’s imagination. There need to be checks and balances in economics just like in government. As these carefully crafted checks and balances have been removed, ever since the reagan regime, the economy has steadily deteriorated. No one, liberal, conservative, democrat, republicon, progressive or liberaricon, will say that we are better off today than we were before 1980.

  • I have a hard time even trying to understand this. What is a reporters job other than to ask questions. Abby Martin is one of the best things to have happened to real journalism and I support her 100%.
    Then you have people like george who should be watching some dancing show as that obviously is all he should be commenting on as he’s superficial beyond belief and I’m certain a foxbot.

  • Part of the problem is if a decent person does happen to get elected, they don’t have the comfort of knowing the American Sheeple have their backs. Look at the unassailable evidence in the Kennedy Assassination, 911, and a host of instances where Americans completely avoid the truth. It can’t all be projected onto "evil politicians".
    I followed the 2008 and 2012 GOP primaries, and RON Paul got fucked, pure and simple. So while Rand is a sordid little fucker, how many of us are any better? We weren’t taking it to the streets, and if one of the Pauls commits suicide by shooting themselves in the head five times in a park, the vast majority of Americans would not even question the official story. We deserve what we get.

  • Abby I wouldn’t let this story die about Rand Paul

  • Oh please some of you. Abby is a sensationalist wanna be with her lip stick for this video how charming. I don’t care who the fuck you are, if you don’t want to answer a question at the time it is a RIGHT. Abby broke this right. RT has fed these young in experienced kids an ego, and one day it is really going to catch up with them. I see both sides to this, not just one. Abby is wrong too, and she brought this on her self it was only a matter of time. Trust me one day Abby is going to fall into the scandal territory and her career and others on RT will be revealed. Suck it in Abby you want to play Mrs Big time? Shut your mouth, take off your lip stick and be a woman and stop your bitching. RT hacks are just as messed up as the rest of ’em. But she is hot so that gives her the following by some people who want the truth but fall for her looks. If your going to be a bully Abby at least have the balls to not whiiiiiiiiiiiine about it. Stupid pretty girl.

  • Abby Martin and Rand Paul = two pieces of dung. Flush ’em ASAP.

  • I’m with you Senator Rand Paul, Abby Martin is so fit she should be stripped

  • Abby, My name is Paul Martin. Can I go to Washington this summer and take you out and tell people we meet, "this is my wife, Abby?" Glad there are idealist journalists with a functioning moral compass, like you and your friend, out there and willing to take the heat to help defend the rights of people who mostly don’t even know that they have rights that need to be defended, but also for the portion of us who do and who still care, as you you.

  • That is one of the main tactics corporations and politicians do to silence anyone who poses a threat or can influence people with their opinions and lifestyles. Gabriel of Urantia (http://gccalliance.org/resume/) comes to mind and others who have been misrepresented by the media. We call for true journalism, courageous journalism! And true advocates of truth in the media… Abby is one of them.

  • @ George Archer…what a dick. She has a sincere situation that we as americans who believe in the constitution and freedom should be outraged over…but never the less, she is completely hot…I personally love her lips and everything about her..so stfu..
