Rand To Announce 2016 Campaign In Front Of Aircraft Carrier


In an apparent effort to toughen up his image, Republican Sen. Rand Paul chose the aircraft carrier USS Yorktown to serve as a backdrop during his April presidential campaign announcement tour.

Paul will make the first announcement in his home state of Kentucky April 7, then head to New Hampshire, South Carolina, Iowa and Nevada to complete the 5-day announcement tour. His backdrop in South Carolina will be the USS Yorktown in Charleston Harbor, reported Politico Playbook.

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz became the first official candidate to enter the race Monday, with an announcement before a crowd of evangelicals at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va. (RELATED: Ted Cruz: ‘Imagine A Conservative President)

Secretary of State John Kerry also announced his bid for president in front of the USS Yorktown in 2003, when he faced wartime president George W. Bush.

Paul’s libertarian image could get him into trouble on foreign policy in the race. He’s working to differentiate himself from his father Ron Paul’s isolationist foreign policy, saying he supports “peace through strength.” (VIDEO: Rubio: Rand Paul Has Become Chief Cheerleader Of Obama’s Foreign Policy)

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military

Dr. Sonny Hernandez

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military is a field manual for US service members and military chaplains. This Gospel-Centered, polemical book exposes the homosexual agenda that adversely affects Religious Liberty for Christians. There are several homosexual activists that will demand equality and tolerance. However, homosexual activists are not so equal or tolerant towards anyone that disagrees with their position on same sex marriage or transgenderism. They will claim to love all, but they really do not mean all—they mean agenda. This is because the homosexual agenda has a definition for inclusivity—their way or the highway.
