Yes, this was a big red flag....
Such a pretentious show, go out of the way to pick a document
that does not contain the bill of rights...what are the odds of this
being a mistake?




This is the kind of pricks we have in washington. ZERO INTEGRITY!

We confront Rand Paul on endorsing a Goldman Sachs flip flopping war mongering Bilderberg puppet.

LOL


rand is a shill...lol

truth is truth and shall be known.


You mean the truth that he has always said he would endorse the republican nominee? This has been debunked a long time ago.

So now that we know you want to attack his character, how about we discuss the actual topic at hand? Or are you avoiding the address of obamas drone strikes?

hey character is important, tells me something about a person.

i'm not for drone strikes, but don't get carried away little princess...

the guy is still a shill.


playing a part...

got you


You didn't get diddly squat. In fact, you admitted that you are not even here to discuss the OP, instead only here to promote your agenda.

I regret that debate on ATS is reduced to this level, your level.




but don't get carried away little princess...



LOL

and you are so righteous?

my level is very high and i will call anyone out if they are corrupt in any way, i will call out Obama if need be...

i support Obama, i support socialism...

i believe in service to others and sharing, i believe this is a team game called Humanity...

i do not believe in rich/poor class systems..

i do not believe in caste systems..

i do not believe in draconian systems..

i am here to abolish them and will, thank you God



Thank You



That's not Socialism, that's Christianity. True sharing doesn't involve coercion.

Beliefs aside, we should all at the very least applaud Rand Paul for using the fillibuster in the manner in which it was intended.

I guarantee if there was a mandate where the speaker had to do what Rand Paul did, there would be far less filibustering. Reading War &Peace or the phone book had led to the simple declaration of filibuster to point where the entire point of the filibuster has become lost. Same result without the same route is dangerous. It creates the most outrageous obstructionism which we see today.

So I applaud Rand Paul for using it properly.

Did he do this when Cheney was flying drones, or does the squirrel on his head only command him to question the current POTUS?

Rand Paul is nothing but a distraction and a good one for the people who don't know any better. Look at what Rand Paul said during his Filibuster.


no American should be killed by a drone without first being charged with a crime.


Yep, but he can kill you when you have not been convicted of said crime, HELLO!!!


The president still needs to definitively say that the United States will not kill American noncombatants.


Yet we all know they can claim you are a combatant as they please just like today they call Vets terrorist!!

Wake up people you all have been had!!! Just like Ron Paul's election campaign that did nothing!!!!!

Yea its called due process, silly...

If the government suspects an American of wrong doing, they are restrained from 'executing (executive)' that person without first charging them with a crime and finding them guilty.

Why do you get mad at the guy that advocates that process vs getting mad at those that don't?

Where do you people get this stuff!? The only distraction here seems to be you.

Notice how he says he will call out Obama if need be, then continues to say how much he supports Obama.

How disgusting is that...

Where is he to call out Obama for:
Prosecuting whistleblowers?
NDAA?
Lying about the patriot act?
Pretending to advocate the middle class while raising their taxes and giving corporations tax breaks?
Getting us into more wars than Bush?

Cornucopia, you are full of it...but I give you a 'get out of prison free' card because I think you actually believe the crap you say. When the day finally dawns upon you that Obama is not a 'figurative god' and can't actually 'do no wrong', that is the day you have no excuses for all of his heinous acts that you apologize for.

To this day, I have not met ONE Obama support even attempt to justify his NDAA indefinite detention power grab, everybody deep down knows there is nothing to say to protect Obama so they ignore it.

Just stand down and let this nation fall into Hell. Eat some ice cream and ride your bicycle. Nothing really matters. Neither you people nor I can do anything to stop this.

Actually, it is relevant. There was no mention in the article of "Non Combatants".
Just because an enemy traitor is "sleeping" does not give them the status of non combatant.

Just so we are clear, I am Against Domestic Spying, Eavesdropping, Electronic Surveillance,
Drone Monitoring, and the like. Unless ,There is a Court Order. I Am, as an American completely
supportive of The Bill of Rights. Which I further believe in this day and age should be UPDATED to include
the Right of Privacy current with today's level of technology.

In General, No American Citizen should face "The Death Penalty" without Due Process.
I believe in Posse Comitatus. I even am fond of The Magna Carta.
However, It must be understood that under unusual circumstances, For The Greater Good
of The US Population,(or any population) a very sticky situation may arise conducive to the "Story" I posted earlier in this thread.
It should never be accepted practice, however in a "Do or Die" situation, it should be noted that
the rules may have to be , shall I say, "Flexible".

We can only hope and pray that the individuals entrusted with these executive decisions are of
sound mind, and strong moral and ethical fiber. For these attributes would create a great hesitation
to act indifferently and without recourse.

Is that Better?

I noticed. I also understand your comment.
However, you do understand that EVERYTHING is in Flux.
More so now than in decades. Think of a group of people sliding around on a solidly
frozen lake with out any skates or ice creepers.

Now the wind is picking up real strong, and it is getting dark.
One person has a pen, another has a piece of paper, and yet another is the co signer.
suddenly the ice begins to crack. Everyone is grasping,bargaining, and pleading.
In their best clothing.

No, he didn't, because he wasn't in the position to at the time, having not been elected to the Senate when Cheney was VP and all.


He criticized what the Bush admin. did and made it clear during his filibuster that he didn't care which party was in power.

A drone strike on U.S. soil WILL happen...it is only a matter of time. The White House and the Department of Defense will have very LITTLE to do with it. The question is, is the victim of said attack an American Hero or a Terrorist? The Muslim Faith is an enemy to the State. It is a religion that LITERALLY demands the destruction of all of Christianity. This is a country FOUNDED upon the freedom to practice the Christian faith.
Muslims LITERALLY believe that there can be no peace as long as Christians and Jews exist upon this planet...this is quite apparent from their sacred text. THEREFORE....allowing Muslims to exist is contradictory to everything that is American. They cannot go to their version of Heaven as long as a Christian exists upon this Earth....They MUST hunt us down and destroy us and we MUST defend our right to have free religion.....but we CANNOT have a true "Freedom of Religion" as long as this bastardized version is allowed to exist...so we must HUNT them down as well.
The founding fathers of this country were Christian....Not a single Muslim signed the Constitution. They would have NEVER signed a document that was NOT demanded by their version of God(Allah) and gave freedom to the populace. Freedom is NOT allowed in the Muslim Faith.

Wow! I can't deny that Islam is a scourge... I just don't see Genocide as the answer.... Surely we can find some old-school commies to infiltrate it and subvert it for the purposes of the proletariat..... It worked well on the U.S.

Back on topic... I'm all for drones, for the government and civilians alike. They will be a lot of fun in the coming civil war. Rand paul is a joke, all of the right wing no government regulation that makes banksters drool, and none of the libertarian zeal and love of true freedom of his father....

If someone wanted cheap PR there is a lot more efficient ways to do it. The only place broadcasting the senate was CSPAN. Not exactly a top network.
