Dianne Feinstein sneers at Rand
Paul’s ‘stupid’ Jane Fonda argument

Washington Examiner, by Charlie Spiering

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/8/2013 8:30:10 AM

Sen. Dianne Feinstein D-Calif., dismissed Sen. Rand Paul’s nearly 13 hour filibuster protesting the use of drones on American citizens on American soil. “No drone is going to be used in the United States against an American citizen walking down a street, or sitting in a cafe,” Feinstein insisted on MSNBC last night. Feinstein joined Sen. John McCain R-Ariz. ridiculing Paul for warning about a drone targeting an American dissident such as actress Jane Fonda. “And then there was the stupid example of a drone being used against Jane Fonda,” Feinstein added. “I mean,

Comments:
If the situation was reversed and a Democrat had done what Paul did and used a conservaive as an example she would have been celebrating. I´m sick of these duplicitous jerks. It´s not befitting on the Senate floor?? She must have missed the outrageous, inappropriate things her buddy Dingy Harry has said on the Senate floor.

It seems when one starts ridiculing the other" then the "other" is into something. If Dianne´s scenario is that unlikely then tell us why but don´t ridicule us for bringing up the question

Dianne, your ATF shot women and children in their homes at Waco. What were tanks doing at Waco, Dianne? Your ATF shot a woman and child at Ruby Ridge standing in the door of their home.

What is ridiculous is that Obama couldn´t give a straight yes or no answer if this was Constitutional.

I bet in 1935 most Germans thought it was stupid think that their socialist government would tattoo numbers on its citizens and then send them to slaughter.

What #3 said regarding Feinstein. I´m confused, however, as to "Crash" McCain. Is he saying it would have been o.k. to have napalmed her behind off that anti-aircraft gun? Or perhaps, since they were in Hanoi at the same time, he fears he could have been collateral damage.

Military-style tanks and incendiary grenades were used against innocent men, women, and children, at Waco.

Does anyone doubt that if drones had been available, Eric Holder would´ve used ´em?

One of the great ironies of today is that is was Eric Holder --not Janet Reno-- who was actually in charge of that "operation" in Waco. Holder was´ #2 at DOJ at the time.

So it´s neither "stupid" nor "absurd" to imagine a horrifying government assault on American citizens. It´s already happened.

We didn´t have drones back in 1993 did we -that didn´t start the federal government with a Democrat Prsidnet and Attorney General from using other military style weapons to attack Ruby Ridge and Waco. What is it with Democrats ignoring the US Constitution?

Ann one more thing - enough of Dr. Krauthammer using the analogy of the US Civil War to justify the use of drones on Americans in the US today.

#14 is right. The Bill Clinton administration WOULD have used drones against the Branch Davidians. They lied(perjury) on the original search warrant in order to waver posse comitatus. They used tanks against innocent women and children. They fired guns blindly through the roof into the area where there were woman and children. They purposely mutilated dead bodies with their tank treads. Firing into the buildings from drones would have been a minor addition.

Yes, they will use drones to kill Americans on US soil. They use helicopters now and thermal imaging to find people they are chasing in the woods. Someday, maybe not soon but some guy will evade arrest or maybe just be a person of interest and they Feds or the locals will use drones to find him and kill him.

Rand has tapped into a huge reservoir of powerful feelings across the spectrum.

"Taking the Good with the Bad" requires that we be willing to take the Good when it smacks us in the face.

The new heroes of the right are emerging.

I´m thrilled.

A conservative resurgence will allow for a non-violent remedy to this tyranny.

An uncontested and rigged series of wins by the left has been causing the ´pot to boil´ a bit too much.

This is a ´glimmer of hope´, at the very least.

Feinstein plays the part of a responsible legislator on t.v. but in the flesh.......grave concerns about BenGhazi that sort of petered out, etc. As for her view of Hanoi Jane, she may have warm feelings for a fellow Californian but the rest of us AVOID anything Fonda is in like the plague. Paul was right on the money to my point of view, and Donald Sutherland, just out of camera range, should also be noted.

Rand Paul may have shot himself in the foot by mentioning the possibility of taking out Jane Fonda with a drone attack. I suddenly found myself in favor of the idea.

(If we´d had the ability to take out Jane Fonda at her photo op, that would have boosted American morale so much that we might have had a decisive victory. Just saying.)

Re: Post 28
Kerry was not with Fonda in North Vietnam in 1972 when she was photographed sitting on the NVA AA gun.
For that reason there is no legitimate photo of them together there.

But there is a photo of the two sitting near each other at the 1970 anti-war rally in Valley Forge, PA.

Even Snopes had to admit that photo was legitimate.

That is the event where the traitorous Kerry made his infamous "Jenjis-Khan" speech.

The leftists are fine with kill lists as long as they are making them. They don´t consider that someday a conservative will be making that list. (That will happen someday, whatever they think.) They would love the idea that Rush Limbaugh could be targeted, but are horrified that Jane Fonda might be.

We had drones well before 1993, #17, but they were top secret and not discussed by the government and the MSM like new Christmas toys. They only carried cameras.

I just sent the following e-mail to Senator Feinstein, unfortunately my representation in the Senate:

I strongly disagree with your statement that Senator Paul´s argument about use of drones on American citizens was "ridiculous". He was asking about a Constitutional issue, trying to get a simple yes or no answer from the Administration, about how it interprets the 5th Amendment of the Constitution. It was not specifically directed at the use of drones. I take this very personally inasmuch as supporters of the Tea Party have been categorized by Janet Napolitano as some of the greatest "threats" to homeland security. Would that categorization as a "threat" allow the government to act against Tea Party participants, for example, since it deems them to be a "threat" ? The Constitution means something, Senator, and We The People have a right to know how our Government interprets it. I am disappointed, though not surprised, that you find this expectation "ridiculous".

Memo to Media, #29, and all U.S. Senators:

Let´s clear this up. Obviously you did not LISTEN to what Senator Paul said during his filibuster. What he said was that we should NOT take out Jane Fonda on AMERICAN SOIL even if we don´t like her because she sat in a Viet Cong tank while visiting over there. Had the technology been available then, and it was known AT THE MOMENT, she would have been a fair target with the other VC.

John McCain GOT IT WRONG. No surprise there. He gets ALMOST EVERYTHING WRONG.

All it took to authorized military tanks and helicopters at Waco was to claim that drugs were involved. General Clark, commander of the 1st Cavalry Division at Ft. Hood, was happy to oblige, and then his career took off, becoming commander of NATO.
Clark grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas, and was a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford at about the same time as B.J. Clinton, 1968, both in the Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE) program. What a coincidence.
Apparently all it takes to murder large numbers of American citizens are evil politicians and ambitious military/police. We have an overabundance of both.

Well done,#4.

Also during the Clinton years was the attack on Ruby Ridge and the Weaver family. Mrs. Weaver stepped into the doorway of the cabin, while holding their infant, and she was shot dead. Their son was killed hen he went outside to see why the family dog was barking... the dog, too, was killed. --sounds like a lot of "collateral damage" for which a drone would have been even more efficient.

If the report i heard recently is correct, the pretext for the attacks was faulty in the first place... which certainly means that the family members killed did NOT enjoy their 5th Amendment Rights, their "due process."

We also know that every left-wing regime in history has used every means of oppression at its disposal.

AND, those left-wing regimes always have a gaggle of useful idiots to help them.

Our Constitution is our protection. But WE, as President George Washington said, are the protectors of it, what it guarantees.

So, when we have representatives IN government standing as champions of our Constitution (of OUR Rights and Liberty), then we honor them, and treasure them, and thank them.

And this is why we have contempt for those petty little tyrants who have squatted in Congress so long that their fiefdom is what they protect, not the People, not our Liberty.

My letter/email to the following, since he is not taking calls!

Dear Mr. McCain

Resign now! You have shown with your pathetic attempt at running for president back in 2008 and now attacking Senator Paul, that you should be removed from office for your lack of intelligence and failure at following through on your oath to Defend the Constitution. You are not fit for office.

Now you attack one of your own! Who has the right as a Senator to filibust and to bring these issues to the American people because we have a media that is in the bag for the Communist president we have in office. To expose this president for what he is, a communist/fascist/statist, pick one they are all anti liberty godless evil people. But you know that and support that! Time is running out for our Country and you sit on your thumbs.

Frankly, you were a traitor from way back in Vietnam. WE all know why you were released and got special treatment! WE all know you gave info and comfort to the enemy and continue to do so now.

You like the rest of the RINOS and traitorous democRATS in office need to be swept from office, but you as an old dinosaur have rigged the game so you can always have the win and then go home after you decide you are done filling your pockets with MY money and my fellow citizens money.

GO HOME, GO AWAY, YOU ARE A USELESS FEEBLE OLD MAN!

SENATOR RAND PAUL IS THE MAN YOU COULD NEVER BE! That is why you attack him.

Sincerely,

Randall L. Collins
Attorney at Law.

Obama statement recognizes ´tragedy´
in Boston; no mention of terrorism
Washington Examiner, by Charles Hoskinson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/15/2014 12:11:40 PM     Post Reply
Here are a few things missing from President Obama´s statement Tuesday marking the anniversary of the 2013 terrorist bombing of the Boston Marathon: • The word "terrorism." • The word "bombing." • The fact that the bombers were motivated by Islamist extremist beliefs. No, in his mind this was a "tragedy" that just somehow happened and from which we need to recover, not a criminal act that may have been preventable. Here´s the statement, in full: A year ago, tragedy struck at the 117th Boston Marathon. Four innocent people were killed that week, and hundreds more were wounded. Today, we remember Krystle Campbell

A new Citizens United Political Victory Fund poll shows that Republican Arizona voters have had it with Sen. John McCain, even though the senator has signaled his intentions to run for a sixth term in 2016. According to the poll, 64.2 percent of likely GOP primary voters said that they are ready for someone new to take the job and only 29.3 percent signaled a willingness to re-elect McCain. The poll also shows that McCain loses to other potential Arizona Repubican candidates in a primary. McCain loses to Gov. Jan Brewer 47.7 percent to 29 percent and to Rep. Matt Salmon 48.2 percent

Al-Qaeda: ´Spreading Like Wildfire´

Last week, a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee held a hearing provocatively titled “Is Al-Qaeda Winning?” The answers that the Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Trade received were profoundly unsettling. Former Senator Joseph Lieberman (I–Conn.) testified that Syria had become a key focal point of al-Qaeda’s efforts. He noted that there are more foreign militants fighting in Syria today than in Iraq and Afghanistan combined over the past 10 years: “Put very bluntly, Syria has become the most dangerous terrorist sanctuary in the world today—and the United States has not coherent or credible policy for dealing with it.”

GOP, Don´t Be Comforted

As horrible as Kathleen Sebelius has been as this nation´s health and human services secretary, she has been exactly who President Barack Obama wanted her to be. This was no rogue incompetent tinkering with America´s health care. This was one of Obama´s chief lieutenants, one who was doing his bidding every step of that treacherous road they traveled together. Don´t get me wrong; Sebelius was inexcusably bad — arrogant, defiant, uncompassionate, dogmatic and unrepentant. Obama cashiered her only because it was time to deflect blame from himself and change the channel. There is nothing incompatible between assigning major blame to Sebelius for all

Marco Rubio is beefing up his political action committee, making significant high-level changes to it and his senatorial staff. The changes are intensifying speculation that Rubio – who many thought that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney would pick to be his vice president in 2102 – is preparing the terrain for the 2016 presidential race. Publicly, Rubio, a Florida Republican, has said he has not yet decided whether to aim for the White House in two years, or whether he’ll seek re-election to the Senate. His announcement, on his website, suggested he might be looking at running in 2016, but stopped short of

Survey shows ObamaCare sending

A recent survey of 148 insurance brokers shows that ObamaCare is sending premiums rising at the fastest clip in decades. "For the last, about, five years they´ve been doing this survey, so this was the largest percentage increase in any quarter since they´ve been doing (it)," says Scott Gottlieb of the American Enterprise Institute. "But at 12 percent, 11 percent increase on average across all the states -- that puts it at the upper end of any increase we´ve seen for decades." That is the national average in a survey done by Morgan Stanley. But in some states, it found rates are soaring. "There are specific states with exorbitant increases," says Gottlieb.

Bill O’Reilly invited Fox News contributor Brit Hume onto The O’Reilly Factor Monday night to expand on comments he made about Attorney General Eric Holder and race over the weekend. Hume said the reaction to his comments about Holder and President Barack Obama “benefitting enormously” because of their race was equal parts positive and negative, with about half of people on Twitter calling him “racist” because there were no African-Americans present for the debate on Fox News Sunday. “In other words, in order to discuss this, you have to have an African-American present,” Hume added. “But if you’re just white,

4 We told you a few weeks back that the Obama Administration was prepared to take an astonishing step of surrender, even for this crew, in giving up control of the Internet’s domain name system. That would threaten the Internet’s independence as it would create an opportunity for regimes far less friendly to freedom to step in and gain power and influence. Well, this idea was so horrendous that even Bill Clinton, in addition to 35 Republican senators, spoke up and told the administration not to do it, as well as a great many other voices. Guess what. You’ll be glad to know there is still some responsiveness in government,

WASHINGTON – The Internal Revenue Service is prepared to rewrite a proposed rule regulating the political activities of non-profit groups to address complaints from the right and left that it goes too far, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said Monday. "In all likelihood we will re-propose a redefined rule and ask for more public comment," Koskinen told USA TODAY´s Capital Download. It´s a process he predicts will take "until the end of the year and beyond" to complete. The proposed regulation of groups known as 501(c)(4)s drew a record 150,000 comments before the deadline in late February. He said the new rule would

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no."

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
