  1. What great news and a bold one at that. So relieved to not have a certain sibling/son of a previous president. San Diego GOP is always at the forefront of key Republican activities. Great to see.

  2. I’m curious about something, and I mean this with all due respect. Dr. Paul signed the letter to Iran. How would Republicans feel if the same letter would have been sent by 47 Democrats if there were a Republican president? Thank you.

  3. We probably wouldn’t like it, Dr. Greene, but that’s how the ball bounces.

    Our country has a long history of contentious relations between the legislative and executive branches. It’s almost as if it was designed that way.

  4. Read that it might be 1000 seats..in florida he spoke to over 2000 in February for the party…1000 might be light..

  5. Lorri Greene; I can answer your question – the Democrats have done this many times before!

    The only indictment under the Logan Act was in 1803. Furthermore, the republicans sent an “open letter” that in no way can be construed as “negotiating.”

    Moreover, the real issue here is the hypocrisy of the Democrat Party. Accusations of violation of the Logan Act in the past have been:

    1] In 1975, Senators John Sparkman and George McGovern were accused of violating the Logan Act when they traveled to Cuba and met with officials there.

    2] In 1984, the activities of the Reverend Jesse Jackson, who had traveled to Cuba and Nicaragua that year and had returned with several Cuban political prisoners seeking asylum in the United States, may have violated the Logan Act.

    3] In 1987 and 1988, House Speaker Jim Wright’s “intrusion” into the negotiations between Nicaragua’s Sandinista government and the Contras for a cease-fire in the long civil war. The National Security Council considered using the Logan Act to muzzle Wright.

    4] In June 2007, Representative Steve King introduced legislation that would prohibit then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi from drawing on Federal funds to travel to foreign states which the U.S. deems to sponsor terrorism. King claimed that Pelosi’s dialogue with the Syrian government violated the Logan Act.

    And the worst violation of the Logan Act was by that icon of the Democrats, Teddy Kennedy, trying to deal with the Soviets for POLITICAL PURPOSES. Kennedy’s message was simple. He proposed an unabashed quid pro quo. Kennedy would lend Andropov a hand in dealing with President Reagan. In return, the Soviet leader would lend the Democratic Party a hand in challenging Reagan in the 1984 presidential election. “The only real potential threats to Reagan are problems of war and peace and Soviet-American relations,” the memorandum stated. “These issues, according to the senator, will without a doubt become the most important of the election campaign.”
