Senator Rand Paul delivers his response to Obama’s State of the Union address.
Sen. John McCain says if it in 2016 came down to Sen. Rand Paul or Hillary Clinton for president, he might have a hard time making up his mind.
Asked about the possibility in a new, lengthy interview with The New Republic, McCain (R-Ariz.) quipped: “It’s gonna be a tough choice [laughs].”
McCain said that while a section of the party (including Paul) blocking bills is “of concern,” he understands the Kentucky senator’s agenda.
“Let me just clarify that. I think that Rand Paul represents a segment of the GOP, just like his father. And I think he is trying to expand that, intelligently, to make it larger,” McCain said.
McCain has publicly clashed with Paul before, calling him and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz “wacko birds” for their splits with the party and outspoken political tactics in a March interview. He later apologized. In The New Republic interview, McCain said he tries to keep it respectful.

It has been clear for the past five years that conservative politicians are a bunch of craven cowards. Fear of being called racists (or even “mean-spirited”) sets them to whimpering, trembling, and hand-wringing, eyes rolling as they desperately search for the nearest hole to hide their heads in. They have lost the ability to use words like “liar,” “abuse of power and/or office,” and “criminal acts,” much less “treason” and “traitor.” They cower in the background, literally letting Obama, Holder, H.R. Clinton, Jarrett, Axelrod, Jay“The Mouthpiece” Carney, Rahm Emanuel, et al. get away with murder.
The current rash of “scandals” is but a continuation of the lawlessness that has characterized the Democrats for the past 60 years. The craven cowards seem to have totally forgotten that it was Democrat Lyndon Johnson who completely fabricated from whole cloth – made up a huge lie, for those of you who were “educated” in government schools – the so called Gulf of Tonkin Incident, a supposed attack on U.S. naval forces by the North Vietnamese that he used to justify the massive insertion of American troops into Vietnam. Bush’s supposed lie regarding weapons of mass destruction in Iraq doesn’t even come close (even assuming he did lie), nonsense only far-left Marxist Democrats believe; yet the craven cowards in Congress utter not a peep.
Nor do the cowards have the backbone to bring up the fact that in 2009, the bailout of Chrysler resulted in 789 dealerships being closed, nearly all owned by Republicans (or Democrats who opposed Obama.) Leftist apologists like Snopes and others bent over backwards to spin this as an unintentional coincidence; but given Obama’s abuses of power, before and since, this sure looks like more of the same. Nixon appears a rank amateur compared to Obama & Co.
This despicably craven behavior has allowed Obama and the self-avowed Marxist revolutionaries he has appointed to dozens of positions of power within the administration to move forward, virtually unobstructed, with their looting of the treasury, emasculation and hobbling of the military, undermining of national security, persecution of Christians, and the vilification of conservatives (especially those who believe in government by the Constitution.) The craven ones have allowed the border of our once sovereign nation (and our immigration laws that served us so well for so long) to be turned into a memory. They have said nothing about elections like the blatantly fraudulently one in Minnesota that foisted Al Franken on We the People, or the one in Nevada where the votes of thousands of criminal invaders from Mexico let fascist Harry Reid steal the election from solid Tea Party conservative Sharon Angle and continue his reign of corruption as Democrat Senate Majority Leader. It allowed leftist political hack Sherrod Brown to steal the Ohio Senate election from solid Tea Party conservative Josh Mandel.
The Senate clearly should have had a Republican majority, but the craven cowards can’t object when their heads are…er…uh…buried in the sand. The radical racist who runs the Injustice Department has totally refused to even consider investigating, much less bringing charges. No surprise since, with the unequivocal approval of his boss, he has decided that he and the administration are above the law and can do anything they darn well please.
The chances of any serious resistance to B. Hussein’s selling us out to radical Islam, at home and abroad, are not even slim; they are none. We have a taqiyya Muslim in the White House, a Muslim running the CIA, a Muslim sympathizer running the Department of Homeland Security, and numerous radical Islamists in the State Department and other positions of power in federal agencies. The Benghazi debacle was, among other things, about gun-running to Obama’s al-Qaeda allies who have taken over the anti-Assad forces in Syria. Yet the taqiyya Liar-in-Chief had the temerity to publicly announce – again – that al-Qaeda has been defeated and that Muslims are a “fundamental part of the American Family.”
The corrupt Senate Foreign Relations Committee has just voted 15-3 to approve S. 960 to fund the sending of weapons, money, and American troops to “aid” the al-Qaeda dominated Syrian “rebels.” Strangely, Rand Paul was joined by uber-liberal Democrats Udall (D-NM) and Murphy (D-CT) in voting against it. The rest of the Republicans on the committee turned traitor. It looks like our traitorous Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and his bloodthirsty rubber stamps in the Senate are about to get us into another war in the Middle East, a war in which we have zero, zip, nada national interest.
Our country is being sold out, our Constitutional republic is being undermined, and We the People are being set up for life under a collectivist, totalitarian police state. Unfortunately, We the People, through our neglect of our civic duty to be active in the affairs of our towns, counties, states, and nation, have allowed this to happen. The question is: do we have the necessary backbone ourselves to stop it?

A recently leaked Department of Justice “White Paper” gives the President of the United States and those he designates – “high government officials” – the authority to take the life of any American citizen, even if there is no proof that the citizen in question is involved in nefarious activities.
John Brennan, the Obama administration’s pick to replace Leon Panetta as the next CIA Director, has found his nomination put on hold by Senator Rand Paul after refusing to answer Paul’s question in front of the Senate sub-committee regarding the use of drones to attack American citizens domestically, again without ever having been charged with a crime in a court of law. Senator Paul calls the idea “appalling.”
In this episode of “The Truth Is Viral”, Nate Wessler, a lawyer with the ACLU’s National Security Project, echoes Senator Paul’s sentiments in this exclusive interview in which he calls Obama and the members of his administration “Judge, jury, and executioner.” That is a strong statement of condemnation coming from the historically ultra-liberal ACLU.

Gazillions. That’s the number of times the federal government has spied on Americans since 9/11 through the use of drones, legal search warrants, illegal search warrants, federal agent-written search warrants and just plain government spying. This is according to Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who, when he asked the government to tell him what it was doing to violate our privacy, was given a classified briefing. The senator – one of just a few in the U.S. Senate who believes that the Constitution means what it says – was required by federal law to agree not to reveal what spies and bureaucrats told him during the briefing.
The rules for classified briefings of members of Congress on areas of government behavior that the government wants to keep from its employers – the American people – are a real Catch-22. Those rules allow representatives and senators to interrogate government officials about government behavior that they are afraid to reveal, and they require those officials to answer honestly and completely. But the rules keep the interrogations secret, and they expressly prohibit members of Congress from telling anyone what they have learned.
So Paul and his colleagues who joined in the secret briefing now know the terrible truth about the government watching us, but they cannot reveal what they know. Paul – who is the son of Rep. Ron Paul, the greatest congressional defender of limited government in our era – when asked what he learned at these secret briefings and aware that he could be prosecuted for telling the truth, chose a fictitious word to describe the vast number of violations of privacy at the hands of federal agents: gazillions. Paul’s personal courage in using a word like gazillions to convey an oblique message of truth in the face of an unjust law that commanded his silence reminded me of St. Thomas More’s silence in the face of an unjust law that commanded his assent to the king’s headship of the church.
