Mr. Paul Goes to Washington – Watch Live

mr-smith-goes-to-washington-1
Remember Jimmy Stewart in the Frank Capra classic movie, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington?

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) is doing the same thing RIGHT NOW on the Senate floor.

Rand Paul
Sen. Paul is filibustering the POS regime’s appointment of John Brennan as CIA Director because the administration won’t disavow drone killing American citizens on US soil without due process. In fact, the POS’s attorney general Eric Holder three-times refused to answer the question whether it is constitutional for the the United States to use a drone to kill an American citizen on U.S. soil, even if said citizen does not pose an “imminent [national security] threat”.
This is unconstitutional and Sen. Paul said he’s had a enough of unconstitutional actions by this regime and will talk until he can’t do it any more.
Sen. Paul is getting great support from Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah), John Barrasso (R-Wyoming), and Ted Cruz (R-Texas).
Will any other senators step in when Paul has to quit? Flood your senators’ phone lines with that question.
This is democracy in action, folks!
Sen. Paul and other supporting speakers are also using this occasion to give the American people an excellent crash course on the threats posed to our liberty by the Obama regime’s drones, as well as the fundamentals of the U.S. government as designed by our Founding Fathers — separation of powers into three co-equal branches, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights (especially the Fourth Amendment), and the importance of due process.

  1. Mr. Paul needs to read the Constitution before he complains someone is violating it. The 5th Amendment regarding due process makes an exception in “time of War or public danger”. I think that was what Holder was saying.

     
    • You need to read the Constitution before you open your nasty big mouth. Here’s the text of the 5th Amendment to the United States Constitution:
      “No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”
      The question asked Eric Holder is “Is it constitutional for the U.S. government to use a drone to kill an American citizen on U.S. soil who’s a non-combatant and who does not pose an ‘imminent threat’.”
      Nor does the 5th Amendment has ANYTHING to do with the US govt having the right to kill US citizens on US soil.
      You are a Canadian living in BC, Canada. I suggest you mind your own business.

       
    • Ditto to what Dr. Eowyn has stated. Remember Michael, that “A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.” Once again, a commenter has taken something out of context and not quoted in proper context.

       
  2. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this wonderful post. Hopefully, there will be other senators with similar courage!

     
  3. So refreshing…SO AMERICAN! I am so pleased there are still steadfast people like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Mike Lee…Good solid Constitutional Americans!

     
  4. So proud of these 3 great men. They are doing what the rest of the cowards wish they could do. Of course….they will get crap from the left. That’s par for the course for all of those hyprocrits that would be marching in Washington if this were a Republican administration.

     
  5. Am watching now, Rubio is on board now, too!

     
  6. Dingbat Reid says, “we’re through for the night”, yet Rand still going on!
