Rand Paul spent damn near 13 hours trying to publicly block the nomination of John Brennan to head the CIA. Many saw this as a legitimate challenge to the Executive Branch and its supposed over the top abuse of power. Paul took it upon himself to be the voice of reason concerning President Obama’s drone policies as they “might” apply concerning potential use on “innocent” American citizens -at least that is what this filibustering fool tried to convey. In my opinion, this nonsense just made him look even more like the Tea-Party, paranoid and racist asshole that he really is. The best part of this tyranny fearing mongrel ran down his mothers leg after her successful attempt at procreation with his deranged dickheaded pappy- Ron Paul. Too bad, Carol Paul stopped swallowing.
[T]he US government has not carried out drone strikes in the United States and has no intention of doing so. As a policy matter moreover, we reject the use of military force where well-established law enforcement authorities in this country provide the best means for incapacitating a terrorist threat…The question you have posed is therefore entirely hypothetical, unlikely to occur, and one we hope no president will ever have to confront. It is possible, I suppose, to imagine an extraordinary circumstance in which it would be necessary and appropriate under the Constitution and applicable laws of the United States for the President to authorize the military to use lethal force within the territory of the United States. For example, the president could conceivably have no choice but to authorize the military to use such force if necessary to protect the homeland in the circumstances like a catastrophic attack like the ones suffered on December 7, 1941, and September 11, 2001.~Attorney General Eric Holder
Despite this clear-cut statement regarding The Obama Administration’s position on drone strikes, Paul, along with fellow Tea-Party toilet residue, Ted Cruz&Marco Rubio continued to push forward with ridiculous assumptions and hypothetical statements about terrorists sitting with everyday citizens, on U. S. soil, downing their favorite version of Jihad java. Paul blatantly attempted to substitute his political ambitions as legitimate concern for very real questions that SHOULD be addressed as part of this issue. This insolent prick spent over half a fucking day to receive another answer from Eric Holder.
It has come to my attention that you have now asked an additional question: “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.~Attorney General Eric Holder
Rand Paul is nothing more than a grandstanding obstructionist/political opportunist. He is also a racist Ayn Rand worshipping asshole, who thinks it’s acceptable for a “private” business establishment to refuse service to African-Americans. Not surprising for someone who thinks the Civil Rights Act went too far, and that the American with Disabilities Act was an “overreach of the federal government.” The statement below, is every bit, if not more, erroneous as the “not engaged in combat” part of Holder’s response that he can’t seem to digest in his superior mind.
“I like the Civil Rights Act in the sense that it ended discrimination in all public domains, and I’m all in favor of that,” he said. “I don’t like the idea of telling private business owners-I abhor racism…I do believe in private ownership.”~Rand Paul
There was nothing heroic or special about this miscreants mile-long meandering of disgustingly self-absorbed discourse. Paul has been sucking on his own dick since his less than immaculate conception. If he was worth a chip of cow shit, he would have spent just as much time waxing about racial injustice or homelessness. Maybe he could explain the scope of his personal feelings of entitlement regarding his incident with the TSA that led to his ass being detained. Paul and his cronies are being referred to as the future of the Repugnicant Party, when in reality, they represent the same narrow-minded thought process as those that preceded their worthless existence(s). The type of guys, who demand to be blown by their wives, but would find “something” in the Constitution that would prevent them from blowing back-Hypocrites of the highest order. ~Daryl
