Why Rand Paul´s Filibuster Matters
Rolling Stone, by John Knefel

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 3/10/2013 10:53:39 PM

Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) held the Senate floor for 12 straight hours this week, from Wednesday afternoon to Thursday morning, in an attempt to block the nomination of John Brennan to lead the CIA. But the junior senator from Kentucky had a much deeper purpose – namely, seeking an answer to what he saw as a fairly straight-forward question: Can the president order the extra-judicial killing of a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil in a non-battlefield context? Though the filibuster is over, the Obama administration still has yet to clearly and directly answer that question.

You´ve got to love the Rolling Stone. Four years of Obama´s indiscretions and still Bush gets attacked. Unbelieveable!

You´re not going to get clarification for Obama or Holder on domestic drone strikes because they don´t want to alarm people that their own government could attack them simply because they have different political beliefs.

Despite what the lame streamers claim,Obama is losing in the court of public opinion.The only reason he´s still alive politically is because you have an incredibly stupid electorate who can´t connect the dots between Obama´s failed policies and the country going down the tubes.

Man on the street interviews continue to prove how stupid and uninformed voters are on the simplest of questions. Many don´t even know who the VP is.I remember a middle aged woman who couldn´t identify who JFK was.

Here´s something else I bet. There´s millions of illiterate people in this country who can´t fill out absentee ballots so they´re getting pro-Obama relatives to fill them out for them.

Rand Paul stood up, defied "the old boys club" mentality, and did something to wake this country up to its duty to protect our liberties, rather than sit quietly while they are taken awa, one by oney.

In my book, anyone, and I mean ANYONE, I don´t care who it is, that attempts to sully Rand Paul´s courage or wisdom in staging that filibuster, is ANTI-American.

I think back to the George W Bush administration and all the hostility he received from the Libs/Dems, code pinkos and Cindy Sheehan for his "war crimes" and yet silence when it comes to this administration´s decision to use drones to kill Americans her in the USA.

The fact that the Administration even mentioned the use of drones this way tells me they are seriously thinking of using them - in spite of what Dr. Krauthammer and other say.

Obama is setting this country up for failure and having men like Rand Paul stand up for our freedoms is not going to sit well with the ruling class. Obama has woven a web of lies and he can´t have anyone exposing them. He has been very successful in shutting down any opposition and uses tools like McCain and Graham to attack anyone who questions his policies. The fact that they went public with their opposition of Mr. Paul´s filibuster exposes their motives. Any criticism could have been made privately, but they deliberately went in front of the cameras for one reason and that was to undermine the message that was communicated by Rand Paul and the men who supported him on the floor. McCain and Graham have proved time and time again they will enthusiastically shove the knife in the back of any Republican who espouses conservative ideas.

With all the lawyers stinking up the joint, maybe what this country needs is a few ´scissor happy´ accountants. They at least understand budgets.

#3, I have maintained for a long time that not all of the lofo problem is not due to deliberate ignorance of the voters. It is due to decades of being deliberately lied to by the press in this country. Combine that with the school system that no longer lets you think independently, and you have a recipe for a crime against humanity.

Wait a few months. The American Left will be united in its support of letting the President be judge, jury, and executioner of any American he takes a dislike to. The "good news": this support will immediately cease should a Republican be elected president.

Two observations. (1.)
Rand´s focus on muslim enabler John Brennan
is a brilliant action, and all who agree need to see the incredible Robert Spencer JIHAD WATCH interview with former FBI agent
John Guandolo. The infiltration of muslim influence in our governemtn is shockingly dangerous and completely overlooked, ignored by the Diane Sawyer mafia media TV traitors-to-the-truth. The betraying media is as dangerous as the covert activities of the stealth muslims in our government and media. And that´s the truth !
(2.) Rand´s artful filibuster reminds movie
nuts of the marvelous image Jimmie Stewart
portrayed in MR SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON, a
Leo Mc Carey classic film about that rare, honest young guy who is elected to go to Washington and makes a breathtaking speech.
Congratulations to Rand for just speaking up. We have over 500 Congress people just sitting there silently on their asses saying NOTHING because they are all so busy stealing, lobbying, corrupting with taxpayer´s fake Fed paper money, while it still has diminishing value. Go ! Rand!

Even frothing libs question this administration´s intentions. Anyone who has read Prairie Fire know where this is heading and it ain´t pretty.

-- Larry Grathwohl, former member of the Weather Underground

I asked, well, what´s going to happen to those people that we can´t re-educate; that are die-hard capitalists. And the reply was that they´d have to be eliminated. And when I pursued this further, they estimated that they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these re-education centers. And when I say eliminate, I mean kill. 25 million people.

I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees from Columbia and other well known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people.

And they were dead serious."

Haven´t heard any of our analyzers yet bring up the following point...

Remember that the President is barred from assassinating foreign leaders?
Isn´t that still the policy?
Probably specifically prohibiting the CIA from carrying out assassinations, right?

If our CIA, overseas, cannot assassinate any foreign leader, no matter how hostile
and how belligerent, including actively fighting our nation...
then what is the distinction between that and this free-kill policy toward the
hapless underlings?

Can we now expect to drone-kill hostile politicos overseas?
Why not drone-kill people like, say, the late not-great Hugo Chavez back in the day?

We could manipulate internal politics in any location by having a drone-kill list
and popping the opposition figures.

What is the difference between this drone-killing stuff and any previous and current
policies on Gummint assassinations?

Just think #21 if one was to backtrack the information that slips out now and then the number of foreign person taken out via assassination drones would be very clear. The problem is the same old one of he who lives by any murder code also risks the same elimination.
Iran says they will photo -op the drone they claim to have when Obama visits the imaginary nation of Palestine in April.

Several posters here understand. Sending drones after Americans in a non-combat situation for purposes of counter-terrorism is only part of the story. The rest of the story is a gummint that worries about a massive uprising of Joe Average Citizen who is sick of having his liberty and wealth milked away from him each and every day by a conniving and all too powerful federal gummint. This is the very thing that our founding fathers foresaw and why the Constitution is written the way it is written.

Chances of getting audited

Posted By: tisHimself- 4/13/2014 8:24:08 AM     Post Reply
Washington - As millions of Americans race to meet Tuesday´s tax deadline, their chances of getting audited are lower than they have been in years. Budget cuts and new responsibilities are straining the Internal Revenue Service´s ability to police tax returns. This year, the IRS will have fewer agents auditing returns than at any time since at least the 1980s. Taxpayer services are suffering, too, with millions of phone calls to the IRS going unanswered. "We keep going after the people who look like the worst of the bad guys," IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said in an interview. "But there are going to be some

The U.S. made clear this week that it wants the International Monetary Fund to be the emergency lender for countries like Ukraine, but American lawmakers have persistently refused to give the IMF the additional financial firepower that it has sought. That tension was evident in meetings concluding this weekend of the IMF, the World Bank and representatives of the Group of 20 major economies: Washington´s long delay in ratifying changes to the IMF´s so-called quota system came under fire from finance ministers and other officials of many countries.

A Greenwich, Conn., estate called Copper Beech Farm has sold for $120 million, making it the most expensive recorded home sale in the U.S. Priced as high as $190 million, the 50.5-acre estate centers on an 1890s French Renaissance-style home of 13,519 square feet that sits on 4,000 feet of waterfront. The price surpasses private-equity chief Tully Friedman´s $117.5-million sale last year of a nearly 9,000-square-foot home in Woodside, Calif. Named for copper beech trees on the site, the estate in Greenwich was sold by timber tycoon John Rudey. Reached by way of a 1,800-foot-long driveway, the main house features a three-story paneled

A June 1990 study, called The Desert Tortoise in Relation to Cattle Grazing by Vernon Bostick formerly posted to the University of Arizona website (and still found through Google) should prove once and for all the incredible stupidity of the bumbling bureaucrats with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). he BLM’s self-proclaimed ‘Save the Tortoise’ balderdash is killing off both the tortoise and cows: “While livestock, jack rabbits, and grasshoppers were busy grubbing the range to stave off starvation, the tranquil tortoise whiled away the time snoozing in its burrow. Then how did they survive? Easy enough—they used a different food source.

Jeb Bush immigration remark

With a single phrase of compassion for immigrants in the U.S. illegally, Jeb Bush has prompted questions about his viability as a potential presidential contender and underscored how divisive the immigration issue remains for the Republican Party. The former Florida governor sparked a conservative furor this week when he described illegal immigration in an interview as an “act of love” by people trying to provide for their families. Backing Bush are some of the GOP’s most powerful insiders and financiers, who are hoping the party can woo Hispanic voters and rebound from Mitt Romney’s damaging “self-deportation” rhetoric in 2012. “The worst thing that

For as long as Republicans preached the gospel of “repeal and replace” and then just “repeal” Obamacare, they also assured everyone that the popular parts of the Affordable Care Act would remain. Keeping your kids on your insurance policy until they are 26 would stay. So, too, would the ban on denying coverage due to a preexisting condition. But in an interview with Al Hunt of Bloomberg News, Ryan let the cat out of the bag. Repeal of Obamacare would mean repeal of everything.

You’d think that someone who put his name on a book about immigration would at least know a little bit about it. I’m afraid that may not be the case, if Jeb Bush’s recent comments on illegal immigration are any indication. His “act of love” comment is what’s gotten everyone’s attention, and I agree with Ramesh’s take on the Corner to the extent that there’s some truth to what Jeb said: Yes, they broke the law, but it’s not a felony; it’s an act of love. It’s an act of commitment to your family. I honestly think that this is a different

I’m not of the generation of political reporters who have long known Jeb Bush, and who say on the Sunday shows that he’s a strong candidate for the Republican nomination for president. I’ve actually met him only once, in a gorgeous breakfast room atop Manhattan’s Bloomberg Tower, in front of a sweeping view of the East River. The breakfast was part of a series with a distinctly Bloombergian vibe: editors rather than reporters, healthy snacks, elite centrism. I asked Jeb there about the Republican Party, whose mantle he’s now apparently considering seeking. He didn’t need much prodding, either, to go after

But many of the event’s participants had another, much simpler agenda: launching a Jeb Bush presidential campaign. The two-day festivities featured a widely covered speech by Jeb. And on the sidelines, former Bush retainers were frank about their hopes that the eldest son could save a party the family has led on and off since 1988. “We have a responsibility to make sure Jeb runs,” said longtime Bush adviser Andy Card after the speech. “If Jeb Bush does not run, shame on us.” Card added,

Saigon was falling and the United States was fleeing, desperately evacuating the last of its embassy staff and C.I.A. officers in the final, chaotic hours of April 1975. With the airport under siege by the North Vietnamese, helicopters landed on rooftops to ferry away Americans and some South Vietnamese. Thomas Polgar, the Saigon station chief for the C.I.A., helped lead the effort, lifting people over fences and destroying files. Just before Mr. Polgar destroyed the cable-sending machine the agency had used to communicate, just before he boarded a helicopter himself, he took a moment to type a last dispatch.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

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

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.
