Senator Rand Paul: White House issues answer after Senator’s 13-hour speech

http://www.paul.senate.gov/?p=press_release&id=735

Mar 7, 2013

Today, following a historic 13-hour filibuster on the Senate floor that ended early this morning, Sen. Rand Paul received correspondence from the White House regarding the legality and constitutionality of the U.S. government using lethal force, including drone strikes, on Americans and in U.S. territory. Sen. Paul’s repeated correspondence to President Obama’s nominee to be CIA director, John Brennan, was finally answered today, in part, with the following response from Attorney General Eric Holder: “‘Does the President have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on American soil?’ The answer to that question is no.”

“This is a major victory for American civil liberties and ensures the protection of our basic Constitutional rights. We have Separation of Powers to protect our rights. That’s what government was organized to do and that’s what the Constitution was put in place to do,” Sen. Paul said. “I would like to congratulate my fellow colleagues in both the House and Senate and thank them for joining me in protecting the rights of due process.”

Sadly, the die-hards on the Left don’t agree. Or, at least, as long as their messiah is in charge, they don’t agree. If a Republican were in the White House, their hair would be on fire over the idea of a drone targeting an American citizen on American soil.

When you’ve got Jesus, you’ve got everything

Mychal Massie says he has “never held animus and resentment toward any group of people much less a group of people based on color of skin. I wasn’t raised that way.”  He shares what Alveda King answered him when he asked how she can harbor no hatred for white people when whites murdered both her father and her uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.:

“Oh Mychal, don’t you know that I’ve got Jesus?”

She went on to explain what God had done for her and how God’s love, grace and His forgiveness of her sins had made it possible for her to love and forgive others.

Compare this with Barack and Michelle Obama. They have never suffered the painful personal loss that Alveda has, yet they are both filled with hatred for America and a deep resentment of whites. For more than two decades, they chose to regularly attend and raise their daughters in a church that preaches a gospel of extreme anti-Americanism and racial hatred.

While Michelle was at Princeton, she unfriended black classmates she thought were acting too friendly to white students. Then, she wrote her entire thesis about how awful it had been for her to endure all the white people at Princeton. Most folks would have been grateful for the chance to attend an Ivy League college; not born-to-privilege-and-mad-all-the-time Michelle Robinson Obama.

It doesn’t matter what either of them says they’re all about on The View or Oprah or Letterman. What matters is what we see them doing. In Galatians 5:19-23, St. Paul taught us the FRUITS OF SIN include:

St. Paul further taught that the fruits of the Holy Spirit are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. What difference does it make? Nothing more nor less than eternal life.  SINNERS “will not inherit the kingdom of God.”

March 6, 2013: Filibuster in the Senate

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) staged an incredible nearly 13 hour filibuster to block President Barack Obama’s CIA nominee John Brennan, but mostly to bring attention to potential drone strikes against Americans in the U.S.

March 6, 2013: Dinner with the “messiah” at the Jefferson Hotel

President Obama broke bread with a select group of twelve Republican Senators. (Was this in an upper room, do you suppose?) The event was alleged to be “part of a larger effort to jump start budget negotiations.” Say what? BUDGET negotiations? ::snort::

2013_03 Obama's priorities

  • This president has not passed a budget EVAH. Even during his first two years in office, when he had Democrat majorities in BOTH houses of Congress, he didn’t get a budget passed.
  • During the second two years, Republicans had a majority in the House; THEY passed budgets. The Democrat Majority Leader in the Senate wouldn’t bring them to a vote and Democrat President Barack Obama did nothing to make him.
  • The situation is the same with this, the 113th Congress. Democrats hold majority control of 2 of the 3 bodies that are required by BY LAW to pass a federal budget EVERY SINGLE YEAR.

Oddly … the Left spins every iota of economic bad news as being due to eeeeeeeeeevil Republican obstructionism. Apparently, Republicans have super-human powers!

  • 2007-2008: Republican President George W. Bush was more powerful than a locomotive, able to destroy the global economy, drive gas and food prices through the roof and put millions of Americans out of work despite having Democrat majorities in both houses of Congress!
  • 2009-2010: Even in retirement, George W. Bush was faster than a speeding bullet, able to fly UNSEEN from Texas to DC to continue his evil fascist control over the Democrat-majority House, Democrat-majority Senate and Democrat-occupied White House!
  • 2011-Present: Since gaining a majority in just the House of Representatives, Republicans are still leaping over the Democrat majority in the Senate and White House, totally preventing these valiant warriors-for-the-people from doing their jobs!

ABC News called Obama’s dinner last night an “extremely rare” meeting between this president and Republicans in Congress. Duh. I have no recollection that Obama has ever done such a thing before in the entire time he’s been in office.

He played golf with House Majority Leader Boehner once. Ooh. Ahh. And I recall one budget meeting with Republicans where he demonstrated all that famous “cool leadership” when he got really pissed about not getting his way and stomped out.

Two members of the Senate participated in the FILIBUSTER BEFORE attended the DINNER: Sen. Pat Toomey and Sen. Ron Johnson.

Obama Furloughs FDA Inspectors; Keeps $100K First Family Dog Walker

Remember when Malia and Sasha were going to be walking “their” dog, cuz Michelle and Barack just sooooooooo believe in teaching responsibility? It seems the real responsibility for meeting Bo’s needs is left to the taxpayers who cough up $102,000 a year to pay for a professional dog handler.
