RIGHT NOW: Rand Paul Is
Doing A Real, Old-Fashioned
Filibuster On Civil Liberties And
Obama´s CIA Nominee

Business Insider, by Grace Wyler

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 3/6/2013 1:45:06 PM

With the Senate prepared to confirm John Brennan as the next CIA Director, Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul is filibustering the vote over concerns about the President Barack Obama´s record on civil liberties. "I will speak until I can no longer speak," Paul said. "I cannot sit quietly and let [the President] shred the Constitution."

Rebublicans should use this tactic more often as it makes news and it bypasses the usual Kneepad Media filters.

Not sure why Rand Paul is so worked up about Brennan. He folded like a cheap suit over Hagel with that "President is entitled to pick his own people" crap.

I agree Brennan is a scary Islamist apologist, but Hagel and Kerry are frightening choices as well. Paul´s lack of consistency troubles me.

In my opinion, this is fantastic. and I hope he gets others to get up there with him and
talk non-stop for the next 4 years until Obama is out of office. He is arguing for due process of law, which is supposed to be the way justice is conducted in the U>S>A> This administration wants to bypass all civil society and assassinate in secret. Its a Government gone mad with power.

This filibuster is not based upon Brennan´s ability. It is based upon our Constitution.

I suspect Rand was planning this filibuster for a while (he has huge binders full of notes) and he voted for Hagel as a way to avoid being branded a pure partisan. Who knows, but he has to play the politics properly in order to strengthen the stance on the battle he chose to fight.

The MSM will barely cover it. If a conservative filibuster falls in a forest of liberal reporters will it make a sound?

This is the only unequivocal display of principled political backbone from a current Republican Senator that I can recall. The rest of the pack may mean well - but they have proved to be good for very little except target practice by Obama and the Democrats. Some fatal defect hinders them even from defending themselves, much less standing up for principle and counter-attacking the radical Leftists. I don´t know that much about Rand Paul, but he has the courage of his convictions. Would that we had more like him in the Republican party.

Hagel was/is merely incompetent, Brennan, on the other hand apparently believes an American citizen can be targeted by a drone while on American soil. HUGE DIFFERENCE While a case can be made to target a citizen who has taken up arms against this country while on foreign soil (I am not totally comfortable with that), the Constitution of this country protects all while on American soil with no exceptions!

Sen. Mike Lee of Utah has now joined Sen. Paul. This is AWESOME. Don´t assume you know what´s going on here, if you haven´t watched any of it.

Whether the U.S. government can target AMERICANS on AMERICAN SOIL with drone strikes is a HUGE issue. The Southern Poverty Law Center has issued a report that the patriot movement has grown ´with the re-election of the nation´s first black president.´ Returning veterans and 2nd amendment proponents have ALREADY been classified as ´potential domestic terrorists´.

It´s only a liberal jump and skip to categorizing patriotic Americans who want a return to Constitutional, smaller government as ´terrorists´, where drone strikes to kill will be accepted, and even desired.

Wake up. We are standing targets by this administration and its Department of ´Just Us´.

Ted Cruz has joined.

God bless ALL of them there today, in the ´snowstorm´.

It´s a Snow News Day in Washington so this may be the only thing getting some traction.

I applaud these efforts to stand up to a Badministration of In-Just-Us...
We can and will be targeted for death by Obama´s assassins if we don´t toe the mark.

That is the Wannabe Kommie Dicktater´s warning to all of us.
The Gummint is preparing to fight against its own citizens in a civil war.

I listened to some of the C-span coverage. Just my luck I got a forked-tongued Demonrat from Oregon talking about how the preezy would not authorize a Drone strike on America soil against a citizen without benefit of due-process. Yeah, right. Never trust a Demonrat, they would squash a patriot in a heat-beat if they though Leftism could triumph by the elimination of any citizen/s.

We emailed our support to Senator Rand Paul, and phoned his main office in Bowling Green, Kentucky to voice our support, AND emailed our Conservative friends and asked them to do the same.

So happy to see that Rand Paul is backed up by Ted Cruz and other Conservative leaders. Paul is young and fit -- hope he breaks the Senate filibuster record!

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., reiterated on Friday that the House plans to bring up a bill to replace President Barack Obama’s health care law. In a memo to members laying out the House agenda for the remainder of the winter, Cantor noted that the replacement is being finalized, and said that in the meantime, Republicans will work to target parts of the law with which they disagree. “As we continue to work to finalize our Obamacare replacement plan, we will also act to highlight and address the serious consequences of the law,” he said. The memo highlights an onslaught against the

It’s the bland leading the bland as Obamacare enrollment (sort of) ends. The front page of Monday’s Washington Post carries the headline “New fronts in health battle: Challenges after sign-up milestone.” (Yawn.) The pull quote inside on A-2 is “The unresolved issues mean it is far too soon to know how President Obama’s signature domestic achievement will turn out.” In that case, why use the word “achievement”? Did they describe the Iraq War as Bush´s "signature achievement"? In doing so, the Post sounds just like Obama adviser David Plouffe, whom they quoted from ABC saying “The law’s working” and it’s

“When 99 percent of women used birth control in their lifetime and 60 percent use it for something other than family planning, it’s outrageous and I think the Supreme Court will suggest that their case is ridiculous.” – Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, Democratic National Committee chair, on MSNBC’s “The Ed Show,” March 25, 2014 Schultz made these remarks in the context of the Supreme Court case brought by owners of the Hobby Lobby arts-and-crafts chain and Conestoga Wood Specialties cabinetry company, who have objected to paying for all of the birth control procedures required by the Affordable Care Act.

FRANKFORT, Ky. — In one of the poorest areas of Appalachia, about 2,500 people have signed up to get health insurance over the last six months — a number that represents more than a tenth of Clay County’s residents. One-hundred-and-twenty miles way, the county’s state senator, Robert Stivers, is laying out his plans to gradually gut the Affordable Care Act in Kentucky, which provided his constituents with insurance. The soft-spoken 52-year-old Republican is hardly a fiery Tea Party type: He first joined the state Legislature in 1997 and slowly rose through the ranks to become the state Senate president. In

US autism estimate
rises to 1 in 68 children

The government’s estimate of autism has moved up again to 1 in 68 U.S. children, a 30 percent increase in two years. But health officials say the new number may not mean autism is more common. Much of the increase is believed to be from a cultural and medical shift, with doctors diagnosing autism more frequently, especially in children with milder problems. “We can’t dismiss the numbers. But we can’t interpret it to mean more people are getting the disorder,” said Marisela Huerta, a psychologist at the New York-Presbyterian Center for Autism and the Developing Brain in suburban White Plains, N.Y.

The state with the most segregated public schools is New York. Other states with exceptionally segregated schools include California, Illinois and Michigan. These findings come from a longitudinal study of enrollment figures conducted by the Civil Rights Project at the University of California at Los Angeles, The Associated Press reports. The period studied was 1998 through 2010. New York, California, Illinois and Michigan are traditionally among the most reliably Democratic states in the union, as an interactive 2012 map created by Slate shows.

Christie´s lawyer: Governor

A law firm hired by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Thursday that the governor was not involved in a plot to create gridlock near a major bridge as part of a political retribution scheme. The taxpayer-funded report released by former federal prosecutor Randy Mastro relies on interviews with Christie and other officials in his administration and 250,000 documents, many of them emails and text messages. "We found that Gov. Christie had no knowledge beforehand of this George Washington Bridge realignment idea," Mastro said at a news conference. His report comes out ahead of any results from independent investigations by federal prosecutors and

Joe Newby at The Washington Examiner has found a real doozy of a “comedian.” Her name is Laura Levites – with obviously no connection to the priests of the Old Testament. (She´s an atheist with a fondness for Ricky Gervais.) "I would personally like to castrate every Male Conservative Christian so that they have NO reproductive rights," she wrote on Twitter, using the hashtag "#HobbyLobby." She certainly knows how to draw attention to herself. Newby said that’s not all. She also expressed her hatred of Christians in a tweet calling conservative Christians "******bags," claiming they are "really trying" her patience.

MSNBC’s ratings are sliding, according to a new Pew Research report. While primetime audiences are down for CNN, Fox News and MSNB, it is MSNBC that “dropped 11% to about 3 million, the smallest it has been since 2007.” The report continues, “The Nielsen Media Research data show that the biggest decline came at MSNBC, which lost nearly a quarter (24%) of its prime-time audience. CNN, under new management, ended . . . in third place, with a 13 percent decline in prime time. Fox, while down 6 percent, still drew more viewers (1.75 million) than its two competitors combined

Russian forces completed their take over of the Ukrainian navy’s assets in Crimea with the storming of the minesweeper Cherkessy. The Ukrainian navy has been reduced to only 10 vessels, with the other 51 it held at the beginning of this month, including its only submarine, now flying the Russian flag. But of all the Ukrainian military assets Russia has seized during the annexation, none is quite as unusual as the combat dolphin program. The Soviet Union began training dolphins and other marine mammals to locate mines, mark underwater and obstacles and detect – and if necessary kill – enemy frogmen in the

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ. The President and the Pontiff will, as the White House said in a statement, focus on "shared commitment

In a meeting with the heads of the five service branches in 2010, President Obama offered the leaders a choice: Support my efforts to end the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy, or resign. In a video obtained by BuzzFeed via a Freedom of Information Act request, Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Robert Papp revealed that Obama was unwilling to compromise with service leaders over DADT during a meeting in 2010. “We were called into the Oval Office and President Obama looked all five service chiefs in the eye and said, ‘This is what I want to do.’ I cannot divulge everything

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. (Snip) His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that Common Core represents educational centralism and having the government ram federal standards down their throats. What I do object to is that Bush is already being heralded as the obvious candidate, the man to whom the big money must and will flow. As the Washington Post reports: Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

The channel took the frequent cable-show guest and handed him his own program, “Ronan Farrow Daily,” which premiered in late February.The theory was that Farrow, a Rhodes scholar who graduated college when he was 15 and went on to score degrees from Yale and Oxford, would bring his 245,000 Twitter followers with him to television

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency.

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in
