Krauthammer: Of all issues,
Rand Paul’s drone concern
‘most ridiculous and absurd’

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:ragu, 3/10/2013 8:52:49 PM

On this weekend’s broadcast of the syndicated “Inside Washington” television program, conservative Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer blasted Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul’s recent filibuster and mocked the idea of a drone attack on United States soil.“Well look, I am grateful he raised this issue, because I think we have reached a point in the country where we are sick and tired of the way the administration is going around blowing people to kingdom come while sitting in their living rooms because of a suspicion — I’m talking about Americans,” Krauthammer said.

Who would have thought federal agents would shot an unarmed woman holding her baby? Who would have thought women and children would be attacked by tanks? How absurd did it sound before it happened?

Seems as though Krauthammer and those who are ganging up on Rand Paul are the ones who are being "most ridiculous and absurd".

I count with them those who believe that good smart Conservatives can only focus on one thing a a time. That is really ridiculous and absurd.

The nice thing about not following gurus and pundits like Krauthammer and others, chapter and verse, is that when they slip off into absurdity you don´t have to go with them.

I wonder about Dr. K, sometimes.

The issue, Krauthammer, is that Obama and company were not giving answers that indicated they had America´s best interests at heart. Anyone could have and should have answered that "of course Americans in the U.S. will not be targeted by drone strikes..."

But they hemmed and hawed. They spun and shifted. Their responses indicated a level of malevolent intent that had to be challenged.

If you can´t see that, I feel sorry for you.

It does seem that there have been some 180´s recently, and rather abrupt ones, at that. Leads one to believe that the opinion holders were threatened pretty explicitly. Quite in keeping with the way the Chicago gang does bidness.

Pre-Nixon it may have been absurd, but nowadays absolutely no suspicion about these communist one worlders is absurd. They have no loyalty to the Constitution or the country. The current one is by far the worst.
Krauthammer never impressed me much as an intellectual. More of a party hack. So who got to the party? What was the threat?

Here´s the deal, as far as I´m concerned. Obama has not to my knowledge ever explained or even been challenged on his "civilian national security force" comment. During his entire Administration he has sided with the pro-threatened or actual violence element, whether the New Black Panther cow pies in Philly, the Occupy scum nationwide or the union pukes in Wisconsin during the recall. Make of the DHS ammo and MRAP purchase what you will. Dr. K and the GOP may want to give him the benefit of the doubt. I don´t, not yet anyway.

No, it isn´t. It is a clear violation of the Bill of Rights and the spirit of the country.

It´s a nightmare. Is that the kind of world you want to live in? Do you want your [grand] children to live in that kind of world?

This isn´t a bunker mentality, this is a huge mistake - a significant step towards an intolerable future.

The problem with the elite Republicans is that they can´t imagine they left would once again behave in the manner they´ve already demonstrated throughout history. I´m certain that Stinky would behave as Pol Pot did in Cambodia if he felt he could get away with it.

When the country´s top lawyer can´t give a simple yes or no answer to if it is okay or not to kill Americans on whim or not that is a HUGE concern.

BTW maybe Krauthammer should look at a history book and see what Lincoln and Sherman did from Chattanooga to Savannah.

#7 that´s what I heard too. If confusing their ranks is the goal, they succeeded with me.

That said, I consider this issue a diversion. I´m sure teleprompter is delighted to have this issue dominate the news instead of the many others he is vulnerable to.

If teleprompter kills an American he can face murder charges. And civil damages. That is more real than any promise he might make anyway.

Sauerkraut is making his move - - to take over from Dave Gergen as King Of Conventional Wisdom.

Neither of them has ever had an original thought - - a characteristic which is crucial to claiming the throne.

But I´m not sure Sauerkraut will make it - - ´cause he doesn´t have Gergen´s hunky sex appeal.

Another pseudo-elitist chimes in. Obama and his henchmen would drone kill their political opponents in a heartbeat if they thought they could get away with it. There will be a Ruby Ridge-like murder-by-drone incident within the not-too-distant future.

What Rand Paul did was important because it got to the heart of the matter: Obama´s Leftist intentions. We who´ve known those intentions are bad and cannot be trusted in any situation have been waiting for a Republican to stand up and question them, at the very least. Whether Rand Paul is correct in every aspect of his own defense policy opinions is beside the point here. What matters is that Obama be exposed - and this was just the beginning of what hopefully will be an ongoing process of unmasking the anti-American fraud-in-chief.

#24, do you have any idea how many laws Obama has broken since coming to office? Still, our government has broken so many laws for generations and has NEVER been held accountable. I have known of people who have been "disappeared" and framed by our Federal government. If they could do it for years and years and years, what makes you think that they can´t easily cover it up or manufacture evidence to justify their actions?

The problem Paul is running into is there´s a lot of people who simply can´t or won´t believe that Obama would use drones on people in this country.McCain and Krauthammer are two examples. They can´t read the tea leaves of where Obama is eventually headed. Creating a registry of gun owners is part of the long term plot to make sure they target the right people.

Neville Chamberlain probably never believed Hitler would bomb England.If it wasn´t for Churchill we´d all be speaking German by now.

Pauls speech would have never happened if Holder us gave a simple direct answer to a direct question.He tried his best to leave open the possibility of people minding their own business,not posing an imminent threat, could get an air strike.


One person,playing judge,jury and executioner is not what this country was founded on.

The regents of the University of Michigan (UM) granted a hefty tuition discount to students who are in the country illegally. The vote to establish in-state tuition rates for illegal immigrants took place on Thursday, following months of discussion over the issue. The two Republican members of the Board of Regents voted against the measure. Under the old tuition policy, illegal immigrants living in the state of Michigan were automatically considered out-of-state students. Now all residents of Michigan, regardless of whether they lawfully entered the U.S., will enjoy in-state tuition rates. The difference between in-state

In January, Rush Limbaugh warned that there was “an effort under way to normalize pedophilia,” and was ridiculed by liberals (including CNN’s Soledad O’Brien) for saying so. But now liberals have joined a crusade that, if successful, would effectively legalize sex with 14-year-olds in Florida.

WASHINGTON — While momentum has been building inside the House Republican conference for a special congressional committee to investigate last year’s terrorist attacks in Benghazi, the GOP leadership is making it clear they still have no enthusiasm for establishing such a committee. About two-thirds of House Republicans – 153 in total – have signed on to the resolution offered by Rep.

It was the right thing to do.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - A 46-hour, no-sitting-or-sleeping-allowed dance marathon at Penn State raised more than $12.37 million for pediatric cancer research and care, shattering last year´s record-breaking total by nearly $1.7 million. The announcement delivered by student organizers to more than 700 dancers and thousands of volunteers, along with cancer patients and their families, concluded the weekend-long IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon at 4 p.m. Sunday. The event commonly known as "THON" is billed as the largest student-run philanthropy in the world. Counting Sunday´s total, students have now raised more than $100 million for the Four Diamonds Fund

Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions voiced concerns over the bipartisan proposal for immigration reform introduced on Monday by eight senators, saying the plan will substantially increase the already sky-high national debt and criticizing the federal government for inadequately enforcing existing immigration laws. “No one should expect the members of the Senate are just going to rubber stamp what a group who met decided,” Sessions said on the Senate floor. While immigration system needs to be reformed, Sessions said, the country has been through this dance before. The Alabama senator recalled the failed promise of enforcement following immigration reform in 1986

The maker of Sam Adams beer announced Friday that it is withdrawing its sponsorship of Boston´s St. Patrick´s Day parade because organizers exclude gay groups. Boston Beer Co.´s decision came a day after a bar in Boston´s South End said it would no longer serve Sam Adams beer because of the brewer´s affiliation with the parade, which is scheduled for Sunday. Mayor Martin Walsh and U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch have been trying to broker a deal that would have allowed a gay group to march, but those negotiations broke down. "We were hopeful that both sides of this issue would

Secretary of State John Kerry warned of serious repercussions for Russia on Monday if last-ditch talks over the weekend to resolve the crisis in Ukraine failed to persuade Moscow to soften its stance. Kerry will travel to London for a Friday meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov ahead of a Sunday referendum vote in the Crimea region to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation. U.S. and European officials argue that Moscow is orchestrating the referendum and waging an intimidation campaign with thousands of Russian troops controlling the region. If Russian-backed lawmakers in Crimea go through with the

Fertility is the missing chapter in sex education. Sobering facts about women’s declining fertility after their 20s are being withheld from ambitious young women, who are propelled along a career track devised for men. The refusal by public schools’ sex-education programs to acknowledge gender differences is betraying both boys and girls. The genders should be separated for sex counseling. It is absurd to avoid the harsh reality that boys have less to lose from casual serial sex than do girls, who risk pregnancy and whose future fertility can be compromised by disease. Boys need lessons in basic ethics and moral reasoning

President Obama warned young people that if they don´t sign up for Obamacare by March 31, they will face a penalty -- if they can afford it. During an interview with radio host Ryan Seacrest, Obama explained that young people might be charged a fine if they don´t get insured. "If you can afford it — you just decide you don´t want to get it because your attitude is ´nothing´s ever going to happen to me´ — then you´ll be charged a penalty," Obama explained. Obama was careful to specify that people who can´t afford Obamacare will not suffer a

US officials believe that two communications systems aboard Malaysian Airlines flight 370 were shut down separately, 14 minutes apart - which indicates the plane did not come down because of a sudden catastrophic failure. The data reporting system was shut down at 1.07 am and the transponder was turned off at 1.21 am just after the the pilot signed off to Malaysian air traffic controllers with ´All right, good night,´ and before the Boeing 777 apparently changed course and turned west. According to investigators this indicated that the switch-off could have been a deliberate act and officials told ABC News that the

The day before the Iowa caucuses in 2008, I wrote about the massive crowds of young people at Barack Obama rallies, noting that his candidacy would collapse “if they don’t show up.” The next night, after Obama’s victory celebration in Des Moines, Obama strategist Steve Hildebrand spotted me in a crowd. “The kids showed up!” he said fiercely. They did. But where are they now? An army of 15 million voters under 30 swept Obama past Hillary Clinton and John McCain and to the presidency in 2008. More than 12 million helped him return in 2012. But now his presidency is on the line — and the Obama youth are abandoning him in

President Barack Obama lamented on Friday that he´s been unfairly criticized for wearing loose jeans. “I’ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans,” he joked in a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest. “The truth is, generally I look very sharp in jeans." One fashion faux pas at the 2009 MLB All-Star baseball game was a costly learning experience, he added. "There was one episode like four years ago in which I was wearing some loose jeans mainly because I was out on the pitcher’s mound and I didn’t want to feel confined while I was pitching and I think I’ve paid

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) may be popular among hard-line conservatives nationally, but back home he’s in some hot water. According to an Emerson College poll, his favorability is underwater, by a margin of 43 to 48 percent. Moreover, his favorable/unfavorable rating with women is 39 to 50 percent. I asked the poll director for further detail and found: Republicans: 74 percent favorable, 18 percent unfavorable ~Democrats: 8 percent favorable, 82 percent unfavorable ~Independents: 38 percent favorable, 50 percent unfavorable

President Barack Obama hit back at critics calling him out for his "mom jeans. "I´ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans," Obama said Friday in an interview with radio host Ryan Seacrest. "The truth is, generally I look very sharp in jeans. There was one episode like four years ago in which I was wearing some loose jeans, mainly because I was out on the pitcher´s mound and I didn´t want to feel confined while I was pitching, and I think I´ve paid my penance for that. I got whacked pretty good. Since that time, my jeans fit very well."

Will Darrell Issa say he’s sorry? House Democrats again targeted the controversial Issa on Thursday, with a bid to force the California Republican to publicly apologize for what they dub his “repeated history of abuse” toward the minority party. Democratic Rep. Dan Kildee (Mich.)’s resolution condemns Issa for repeated clashes with Democrats – exchanges Kildee said don’t live up to the responsibility of a committee chairman. Issa wields the gavel at the powerful House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which is probing the Internal Revenue Service controversy and Benghazi, among other hot issues. “[I]t seems that Chairman Issa is more

Scientists who don´t believe in catastrophic man-made global warming should be put in prison, a US philosophy professor argues on a website funded by the UK government. Lawrence Torcello - assistant professor of philosophy at Rochester Institute of Technology, NY, writes in an essay at The Conversation that climate scientists who fail to communicate the correct message about "global warming" should face trial for "criminal negligence". (H/T Bishop Hill) The Conversation - no relation of Breitbart´s blogging chatroom - is a website promoting articles by academics and funded by nineteen of Britain´s leading universities, as well as several government agencies, including the

In case you hadn’t heard, young people these days — a.k.a “the Millennials” — are the most cynical and distrusting generation ever recorded. Only 19 percent think most people can be trusted. According to a big study from the Pew Research Center, they are less attached to marriage, religion, and political institutions than Gen Xers, Baby Boomers, and the other demographic flavors journalists love to use. They like their friends, their digital “social networks,” and their toys, and that’s about it. Not even a majority will call themselves “patriotic.” Probably more dismaying for liberals: Of any living generation, they are
