What Rand Paul got right
Los Angeles Times, by Jonah Goldberg

Original Article

Posted By:Oblio, 3/12/2013 7:28:03 AM

I hope I´m not too late to the fight.Last week, freshman Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) held an old-fashioned filibuster against the nomination of John Brennan to head the CIA. Paul´s stated reason for taking to the floor and talking for 13 hours was that the Obama administration wouldn´t give him a straight answer on the question of whether the president can unilaterally order the killing of American citizens on American soil with "lethal force, such as a drone strike … and without trial."

Paul reassured people that there´s at least one person left in DC that cares about the Constitution.

When my father was a small boy in 1940´s NYC, his father told everyone in the house (all native born Americans) that they could no longer speak German, ever. My grandfather was afraid that his kids or his wife could be arrested. The Army was actively looking for German spies.

Don´t have to be wearing a military uniform from a hostile force to be considered hostile.

Everybody is top-toeing around the obvious scenario that wanna-be-Dictator Obama will start using Commander in Chief status to knock off his political enemies.

People (including Jonah Goldberg) let´s please speak like adults.

Does the average American voter really care what the WSJ, Kristol, McCain or Graham think about Paul´s filibuster? I think not. The named scorners are the ones who sound threatened IMO. Heaven forbid the public stand behind Paul. They did, showing these worriers it´s a new day in many parts of America. Could it be their elitist thinking is the one that is outside the norm?

Thank you Jonah for pointing out the writers who bashed Paul and questioning why. Those of us on Lcom have seen the same thing. The moderates attack conservatives with blood and guts while barely laying a glove on the Dems. Then turn around and tell us to shut up and stop complaining...can´t we all get along. That moderates think we do not see thru such insulting tactics shows clearly the degree of disdain they have for Tea people´s intelligence. What is it that happens to good people once they become part of the group think of Protect the Brand Repub at all cost army? Sudddenly, they think they have gained iq points? And, those of us who do not fall in line lose iq points? At least two of the reliable posters who will attack a ´Palin´ type at the drop of a hate and support anything Rove are really nice people. Wish they would rethink some of their knee jerk responses.

The account of drone kills overseas has now been "lost". Although the last time I saw a count it was approaching 3,000. Also mentioned that nearly 300 children had been killed.

The man in our house wants to ban guns to "save the children" here, yet has not concern for the deaths of children there. That´s immoral. Code Pink needs to react to the drone threat everywhere.

Paul´s scenario isn´t that far from reality. Look at how the feds (not the army but feds) handled Ruby Ridge, Waco and the Elian Gonzalez situation. It´s not a far stretch to see how, with the use of modern drones, these types of scenarios could get out of hand and actually have more dire consequences. BTW, if memory serves me correctly, all of the above examples of domestic over-reach happened under Democrat administrations.

P.S. While I think the David Koresh was crazy, I think the way the entire situation was handled was very wrong.

FTA: "A Democratic president, who made his bones as a holier-than-thou antiwar candidate, clings to his constitutional right to rain death from the sky on American citizens drinking Frappuccinos, and conservatives attack the Republican senator who complains about it."

FTA: ´´In other words, if an American member of Al Qaeda is sitting at a cafe, can the president sic one of his death-dealing robots on him?´´

The point of Rand´s filibuster, as I see it, is NOT the ´Al Qaeda´ types who happen to be born or ´converted Americans´ on American soil. (ALLOWED onto American soil, that is.)

It´s the US types.... those of us who drink TEA and not Kool-Aid and threaten the current pro-regressive status quo, who CAN BE and actually have been classified as ´terrorists´. Oh sure, they ´withdrew´ that little publication that got noticed and deny it meant anything, but the current-era Democrat party types are known for what? The big main thing.... THEIR LIES.

These permissible drones for traffic, crowd control, whatever the lame-o excuse now, are another step of the jackboot onto our neck of freedom.

Rand Paul, and We the People, are trying to warn them not to tread further on us. But the Tree of Liberty is becoming mighty parched.

Sorry to say this, Jonah, yes, you are too late to the fight. The political class, including John McCain, Miss Lindsey, John Boehner, et al, are arming the government to fight a war against We The People. They are refusing to fight the real war- a war against a totalitarian political movement, euphamistically called "Islam". Our own political class sees free and independent Americans as the chief enemy and obstacle to their total contol and power. These are extremely dangerous waters and you, Jonah, need to get up to speed with the rest of us.

From the moment you said you agreed with the substance of the critics Jonah, I now no longer consider you a conservative of any note. You have shown your love for the DC elitists inside the beltway one too many times.

I have read where you tell us that you tend to lean libertarian. Most of the libertarians I know are happy someone is finally standing up for the American people and defending the Constitution.

If you are defending the beltway critics Jonah, you are too late to the fight.

With all respect to our esteemed hostess Lucianne.

Jonah and the critics of Rand Paul seem to be missing the big point. Millions of us do not trust the government, especially this administration. I´m not worried about an islamic terrorist being taken out by a drone. I´m worried the government considers veterans potential terrorists.

Susan Patton, the Princeton alumna who became famous for her letter urging Ivy League women to use their college years to find a mate, has been denounced as a traitor to feminism, to coeducation, to the university ideal. But really she’s something much more interesting: a traitor to her class. Her betrayal consists of being gauche enough to acknowledge publicly a truth that everyone who’s come up through Ivy League culture knows intuitively —

A New York hedge fund manager allegedly swindles $12 million from a prominent Baltimore family. An Indiana couple is accused of bilking hundreds of customers by charging for free trials of cosmetic products. A financial manager in Texas promises 23-percent returns but absconds with $33.5 million of his investors’ money in a classic Ponzi scheme.All three cases have one thing in common: money that ended up in offshore accounts and trusts set up in tax havens around the world.

Former News Corp president Peter Chernin has bid around $500 million for Hulu, the online video streaming service he helped create in 2007, according to two sources with knowledge of Hulu´s sale process. The website, jointly controlled by News Corp and Walt Disney Co, reached out to potential buyers in March after initially contemplating a deal in which one would buy out the other. It is not clear whether that transaction is still being contemplated.

After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.

Diplomacy downplay: Obama administration

The Obama administration appeared eager Thursday to downplay the North Korean military’s latest threat that it has the final authority to carry out “cutting-edge, smaller, lighter and diversified” nuclear strikes on the United States.“This is just the latest in a long line of aggressive statements,” (Snip)the recent tension between Washington and Pyongyang “does not need to get hotter.”The remarks were the first public reaction from the Obama administration since Wednesday’s claim by the North Korean military that the “moment of explosion is approaching fast” with the possibility of war breaking out “today or tomorrow.”

Why Obama´s ´Best-Looking Attorney

President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say? Irin Carmon does a great job in Salon in laying out the bounds of propriety for when it´s appropriate to talk about a woman´s looks as a general matter. But I´ve long felt we lack a solid theoretical underpinning for easily discussing these issues, and why precisely it is that

Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.

With a Speech, Cardinal

VATICAN CITY—It took Jorge Mario Bergoglio four minutes to convince fellow cardinals he was their leader. Speaking in the Paul VI grand hall of the Vatican, the Argentine cardinal warned the Catholic Church against focusing too much on matters close to home—advice that came against the backdrop of a papacy that had been consumed by infighting among Vatican officials, a dwindling flock in Europe and secular trends in the West. The 76-year-old Father Jorge, as he is known back home, said Roman Catholicism needed to shift its focus outward, to the world beyond Rome—rather than being "self-referential," he said.

When President Obama gets to Jerusalem next week, one of the signals to listen for is an indication of what country he thinks he’s in. Normally this is clear when the President — any president — goes to the capital of a foreign country. He’s in whatever country the capital is capital of. But Mr. Obama has been refusing to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Not only that, but he has been refusing to admit that Jerusalem is even in Israel.

Approaching his first presidential trip to Israel, President Obama offered a fresh and foolish — if not feckless — assessment of the Iranian nuclear threat. "Right now, we think it would take over a year or so for Iran to actually deliver a nuclear weapon, but obviously we don’t want to cut it too close,” the President told an Israeli television interviewer, in the process cutting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu off at the knees and giving the mullahs breathing room to keep enriching uranium.

An unfortunate story on CBS New York Thursday carried this headline: "Officials: 80 Percent Of Recent NYC High School Graduates Cannot Read." It´s a shocker, but it´s also untrue. And to make things worse, the story that followed was riddled with typos. According to the New York Post, which reported the same story earlier on Thursday, "79.3 percent of city public-school grads who went to CUNY’s six two-year colleges arrived without having mastered the basics" of reading, writing, and math, and had to take non-credit remedial classes to catch up.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.

Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi.

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.
