Bill Kristol: Rand Paul is
‘spokesman for the Code
Pink faction’ of the GOP

Daily Caller, by Matt K. Lewis

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 3/11/2013 5:54:23 AM

Rand Paul’s filibuster united and excited disparate wings of the conservative movement, but not everyone is happy. Over at the Weekly Standard, Bill Kristol writes, [P]aul’s political genius strikes us as very much of the short-term variety. Will it ultimately serve him well to be the spokesman for the Code Pink faction of the Republican party? How much staying power is there in a political stance that requires waxing semihysterical about the imminent threat of Obama-ordered drone strikes against Americans sitting in cafés? And as for the other Republican senators who rushed to the floor

I don´t know why Bill Kristol even has a job, writing his opinion. I doubt that there are very many people who value his opinion on anything.

I don´t get this in-your-face, we are better than you, we´re smarter than you, condescension from these mush mouth morons. They are doing the job of forming a third-party, themselves.

Bill Kristol is one of the many spokesmen for the Vichy Faction of the GOP.

This country has been taken in a tragic direction in the past decade and in the past 4 years in particular. The powers of the executive branch have exploded and promise to continue doing so. Normal checks and balances of the courts, media (such as Kristol), and Congress offer no resistance. In shock over this, ordinary Americans spent time and money they didn´t always have to deliver to the House in Nov. 2010 the means to save this country. The gift didn´t go over all that well. Rand Paul at minimum has provided the first resistance to exec. branch. Mr. Kristol is grasping the chandeliers while being shown the door (an image I borrowed from Ms. Crowley).

political/industrial complex owns both parties and they have made the rules to exclude Third Ways from a voice much less power. We have a lot of work to do if we´re going to avoid another national bloodbath.

Ruby Ridge and Waco mean nothing to Kristol. The US government killed civilians because of their stands on the second amendment. Weaver and Koresh could have changed the outcome, but does that give the government the right to use snipers to kill an unarmed woman holding her baby or use tanks to attack a compound where they knew children were living? Napolitano lists returning veterans among terrorist risks to the U.S. Obama says punish your enemies and if they bring a knife you bring a gun.

Kristol is THE Weekly Standard and as such has much going for him on the National Media stage. He is a "constant" on FOX News and is utilized by Ailes to offer up his{Ailes}pov.

F&B is pablum too many of us have believed, but they like other news outlets have an agenda and their guest selections tells us that the power in/of the RNC lay with the mcain/Rove wing, thus dismissing Rand Paul´s filabuster as "fringe",or good, but naive.

Bill Kristol was raised in a liberal household being the son of Irving Kristol who had a road to Damascus conversion to conservatism later in life. I don´t really know if Bill K. had that same conversion but I suspect not.

If Sen. Paul deigns to respond to Code Pink (Slime), the words of President Reagan would do well, "they may support me but I don´t support them."

He could go further. Code Pink (Slime) is waging war against the United States. Sen. Paul could say, "That´s funny, because Code Pink (Slime) is who I had in mind when I asked about people waging war against the United States on our own soil: drone ´em."


Reply 32 - Posted by: msjena, 3/11/2013 12:47:31 PM     (No. 9219451)

If I understand Kristol and Krauthammer, they don´t think there´s an imminent threat of drones being used against US citizens. But that misses the point! The point Rand Paul was trying to make was that the Constitution doesn´t allow the government to kill its own citizens with drones--not now and not ever. Whether or not Obama plans to use drones against citizens, who is to say that someone won´t in the future. We now have Obama on record as saying he agrees with Paul on the Constitutionality issue. That is significant and calls attention to this issue, should it ever come up again.

Asked to name his worst failing, Barack Obama surprised the adoring Barbara Walters with a one-word answer — “Laziness.” “You lazy?” she gasped. “You know, it’s interesting,” the president mused. “There’s a deep-down — underneath all the work I do — I think there’s laziness in me. It’s probably from, you know, growing up in Hawaii and it’s sunny outside, and sitting on a beach.” Notwithstanding the confidence he let slip to one of his admirers, in owning up to a deep-down laziness, Obama has always had a considerable talent for getting his own way —

The administration has popped the bubble of hope some small business had that switching to part-time staff would let them escape the high costs of Obamacare. The Small Business Administration on Thursday created a website to explain to businesses that the government will simply tally up the number of part-time employees firms have to determine if enough hours have been worked to essentially create a "full-time equivalent." Some smaller businesses had thought that if they could get under the 50 full-time employee cap that activates Obamacare by cutting full-time workers and hiring more part-time workers they would escape

I have been studying the transcript of the recent New York Times interview of President Barack Obama. It is a remarkable document—remarkable not for the facts it contains, but for the way it reveals the mentalities of the participants. Remarkable, too, in so far as the transcript allows a curious reader to see, in detail, how journalism is manufactured. Through a process of extraction, distillation, production, transportation, and marketing no less sophisticated than the global supply chain that brings Southeast Asian textiles to your neighborhood big-box store, a rambling, snobbish, and platitudinous discussion between three well-compensated Washingtonians

Accused mass murderer James “Whitey” Bulger has to decide ­today whether he’ll take the witness stand and try to reshape his reputation, a judge told his defense lawyers, adding that Wednesday night’s defense photo dump convinced her that the answer will be yes. With Bulger’s lawyers still coy on the subject, Judge Denise J. Casper said they must either put him on or rest after their last witness is called today. However, Casper added she believes his lawyers tipped their hand Wednesday night when they filed 20 photos with the court, documenting Bulger’s youth, showing him with a priest and pets,

Here we go again, processing peace in the Middle East. Processed peace is no more peace than Velveeta is cheese, but it beats suicide bombing and killing children. So let the Kerry Games begin. Neither the Israelis nor the Palestinians actually expect to accomplish much, but autumn in Washington can be very nice, with warm days and cool nights, and the restaurants are good. Not a bad place to spend the next eight months, pretending to negotiate “a diplomatic breakthrough to end more than a century of conflict,” as one optimist puts it.

As the Weiner campaign itself bumps up the spectacle of a campaign in disarray, The New York Times has a look at just how involved the Clintons have been in helping — and protecting — Huma Abedin. Abedin, described in the paper as a "beloved surrogate daughter to the Clintons," took a lot of public heat recently for her decision to stand by her husband in a press conference addressing the new round of sexting allegations. It´s no secret that Hillary Clinton is something of a model for Abedin — both as a wife who stayed with her husband

During his speech on the economy last month in Galesburg, Illinois, Barack Obama suggested Washington should stop focusing on an “endless parade of distractions and political posturing and phony scandals.” He repeated the line about “phony scandals” in another speech on July 25 and in his weekly address on July 27. Obama, whose approval rating has been falling since the spring, has been rocked by months of scandal coverage. His administration’s strategy to change the subject, it seems, is to channel its inner Holden Caulfield. White House press secretary Jay Carney kicked things off a few days before Galesburg

Shortly after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, in November of 1963, a Gallup poll found that 52% of the American public believed that the assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, was part of a conspiracy. In the fifty years since, that figure has climbed closer to 80%. You can understand why. It’s painful to accept that an American president was cut down by one small, half-crazy guy with a mail-order rifle who could easily have been stopped in any of a dozen different small ways—but wasn’t. No wonder Norman Mailer called the assassination “the largest mountain of mystery

Mitt Romney may have been right about Russia: Last summer, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee declared in a speech that Russia is our “greatest geopolitical foe.” In a debate soon after, Barack Obama mocked that notion. “Governor Romney, I’m glad that you recognize that al-Qaida is a threat, because a few months ago when you were asked what’s the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia, not al-Qaida,” Obama said, teeing up one of the debate’s most often repeated lines: “The 1980s, they’re now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know,

House Democrats face a conundrum in 2014: They can’t run with the president, but they don’t want to run without his campaign organization either. On the surface, vulnerable Democrats in conservative districts will likely be aided by President Barack Obama’s absence from the ballot in 2014. But in some districts, Democrats will miss the president’s campaign organization and robust turnout operation. “The reality is that there are a handful of districts around the country where the president’s campaign was a hindrance rather than a help, and in those particular races the Democratic candidate will be far better off

Is it time for the GOP to start ignoring Obama and concentrating on Hillary? After all, Peggy Noonan has informed us that most of the country is tuning him out already. Well, not quite. As Daniel Henninger pointed out the other day, there’s plenty of damage our increasingly authoritarian president can yet do in his remaining time in office. But because of the extra-constitutional power grab Henninger describes, it is all the more imperative that Hillary Clinton not step into Obama’s shoes for eight years, cementing policies and programs never voted on by the Congress or approved by the public.

“Friendship” was the main course during Hillary Clinton’s lunch with President Barack Obama this week, according to an Obama spokesman, but no one could have blamed Clinton for ordering a small side of I-told-you-so. Much of the bombastic campaign rhetoric from 2008 — think “3 a.m. call” — proved as ephemeral as the thousands of half-melted “Hillary” candy bars Clinton’s staff handed out on Super Tuesday five years ago. But some of Clinton’s most memorable ‘08 shots at Obama have had resonance far beyond the short shelf life of the standard campaign hit parade:

But, thanks to a new round of joint therapy that continues even now, the couple was able to put the relapse behind them. “They really became a unit, and she feels much closer to Anthony now,” a relative told the magazine.

Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.

If we learned anything about Barack Obama in his first term it is that when he starts repeating the same idea over and over, what´s on his mind is something else. The first term´s over-and-over subject was "the wealthiest 1%." Past some point, people wondered why he kept beating these half-dead horses. After the election, we knew. It was to propagandize the targeted voting base that would provide his 4% popular-vote margin of victory—very young voters and minorities. They believed. He won. The second-term over-and-over, elevated in his summer speech tour, is the shafting of the middle class. But
