McCainIn case you missed what happened yesterday, because it was not covered by the Mainstream Media, Senator Rand Paul led a 12 hour filibuster of CIA Nominee John Brennan, after the White House refused to say they don’t have the authority to kill American Citizens on American Soil.

In what should have had 100% support by every member of the Senate, only managed to garner the support of a handful of senators. In fact this morning, the Senate, led by Sen. John McCain and Lindsey Graham, took to the Senate floor to denounce Rand Paul’s demands. Senator McCain said he was doing a “disservice” to the country.

A disservice to the country?

Since when is standing up for our right to live a disservice to the country? Every last one of these people needs to be voted the hell out of office. The fact that we couldn’t even get a majority of the U.S. Senate to agree that the President does not have the authority to Kill American Citizens on American Soil (without a trial), is an absolute travesty of justice. What a sad day it is for America when it’s even up for debate.

What the hell happened to America? The sad reality of what happened yesterday, on the Floor of the Senate, should send chills through the spines of every red-blooded American. Can you believe we have come to a place where it’s now being debated whether or not the federal government can ignore the Constitution and kill Americans without a trail?

For the last couple of years we’ve highlighted the drone programs, the effort to disarm America, and how the Department of Homeland Security is stockpiling massive amounts of Ammunition. What some called wild conspiracy theories, don’t seem so wild anymore do they?

Senate Refuses to Pass Non-Binding Bill Saying President doesn’t have the right to Kill Americans

To bring the Filibuster to a close, Senator Rand Paul offered a non-binding resolution opposing the President’s ability to kill Americans in drone strikes on US soil. Something that should have received 100% support in the Senate, couldn’t even get enough votes to pass. We are living in a country where only a handful of our elected representatives seem to have a problem with our government conducting the targeted killing of American Citizens.

Democrat Senator Dick Durbin, speaking for the majority, was designated to say he objects to Paul’s non-binding resolution. The fact that a majority of the U.S. Senate could not even stand together in opposition to something as simple as opposing (in a non-binding resolution) the President’s ability to assassinate citizens in drone attacks on US soil is simply inexcusable.

This is not a Partisan Issue: Both Sides are to Blame

For those that want to claim this as a partisan issue, I want to remind people both political parties, Democrats and Republicans, overwhelmingly supported President Obama’s ability to kill American Citizens without a trial. In fact, at the same time Rand Paul made his stand to say that, “No President has the right to say that he is judge, jury, and executioner”,  a huge number of Republican Senators decided to ignore what was going on in the Senate, and instead attended a swanky dinner with President Obama.

The Following Republicans decided it was more important to be seen eating dinner with the President than it was to Stand with Rand Paul and Support the Constitution and your right to live.

When asked this morning whether the president has the power to kill Americans here at home, Senator Lindsey Graham said “I find the question offensive, I do not believe that question deserves an answer.” Senator John McCain then went to the Senate floor and defended President Obama’s ability to kill American Citizens on American Soil, by arguing that America is part of the worldwide battlefield. He publicly stated that the President has the right to kill Americans (without a trial) who are deemed to be “enemies” of the country.

    • AldoPain says:

      It sounds like it’s time for the American people, to stand up and take back their country. I’m a Quebecer I live up north. And I find it ridiculous that this was even in motion by your gouvernment. The U.S. of America no longer stands for freedom and peace anymore.

      • greg loftus says:

        Inagree with the person from Quebec,and what haappens south may not be that far from happening here. we know where the head of our prime Minster lives.

    • jeff livingston says:

      The stupid people voting them back into office is themselves. Election fraud is so rampant in this country that hardly anyone notices. Until we the people DEMAND a paper receipt of our votes the electronic voting machines will keep flipping the flippin vote in their favor. ever since touch screen voting has been acccepted this has been the case. We the people have allowed this to transpire so we the people Deserve what we’re getting.Put down your glass of poison water,turn off ABCNNBCBSFOX and do your freakin homework on the subject and you will find that the whole system is corrupt 100%. Im just sayin!

    TrIal, not trail.

  4. SNIPER says:

    The Dems. in Repub. clothing are going to allow the Pres. to do any thing he wants. The Pres. has been tring to find enough votes to pass his no term limit plan, looks like he found them, who knew they would turn for a piece of chicken. When he passes the [let the illegal stay} bill the Dems will rule the country for many many years to come. Why has no sitting member begain impeachment process, with all he has done,,are they so afraid of the others?

  5. church says:

    All of the people above are enemies of this country …AN should be (( BLASTED )) to hell by drones….well thats what he said….. “I Qoute” the presadent has the right to kill any and all American “deemed enemies of this country Without a trial…. they are the enemies fire um up….

  6. Mrboldman says:

    Lemme get this straight….these people(!?) owe their very well being to the Constitution-protect citizens of these United States and these puffed -up, self-aggrandising sons of bitches say, that our President should be authorised to execute them as threats to the Union? Why is the Hell are we not sending a mountain-sized load of pink slips to these egregious members of our Senate!?

    • SNIPER says:

      Because he whom has the gold makes the rules.

  7. michael says:

    i know for sure Ron Johnson showed up at the filibuster to show his support.. i can tell you didnt watch it

  8. Patriot says:

    I am extremely pissed off that our congress (elected officials) don’t really give a shit about the people anymore! Our votes don’t matter anymore, so why even bother with elections? This country has gone to Hell! As far as McCain goes, if you really want to find out about this Senator, there are a lot of guys at the VA, that can fill you in!

  9. Peter says:

    I was proud of Rand Paul for standing up for us Americans or us U.S. Citizens. Those that did not stand up with Rand should be shamed of themselves. Those that did I think made us sane people proud.

  10. Ian says:

    Correction: I saw Sen. Chambliss come and stand with Rand on the C-SPAN broadcast, but until late in the day.

  11. Pete says:

    Wait a minute, we got this wrong. Lets hack the Drone program and some missiles into the next dinner party. End of problem

  12. Josh says:

    I support you 100% on this…but for the love of God…T-R-I-A-L

    The first time I read it…shrug…typos happen. But I was twitching by the third.

    Regardless, sad indeed…we are on the verge of a second American Revolution…and this is just going to bring us one step closer to that tipping point.

  13. Sue says:

    I think your wrong about Toomey.. didn’t he stand up with Rand Paul last night or yesterday??

    • Frank Dombrowski says:

      He went to the posh dinner with the President
      He is a traitorous piece of shit….

  14. TNSue says:

    So John McCain and all of you Republicans that sat on your butts in the company of obama while your fello Congressman was literally Fighting for your Lives… if the government killed the wrong person by accident like they have raided homes by accident many,many times…do we just shrug it off and blame “Lack of maturity” ??? Did you forget that in the Constitution,the USA has NO KING !!! The Country beggs you…Step Down,you have lost your right to speak for us.

  15. Joy says:

    Excuse me please and correct me if I’m in error… I thought all elected officials worked for us, not we work for them… If we elected them, can we not find a way to un-elect them and get them out of office???…Much like the real world of hiring and firing…

  16. Siobahn says:

    They are all afraid of the President… They know if they don’t agree with him…he will take them out…literally…

    • SNIPER says:

      It appears that the people whom place him in office are going to do whatever it takes to make sure that he stays, and if the no term limit passes he will be a DICKtator in office for a long time that is why he is so againist deportation or closing our borders for a short time untill we get on a good path, instead of the one we are on.

  17. dan says:

    are you really going to register or turn in your weapons…really ….after listening to the leadership of this country…voting has not improved this country…debate has been muzzled…leaves only one box left…..may God bless the 3%….Molon Labe

  18. M.A. Lancaster says:

    Shame ont John McCain, Lindsey Graham and all of the others which chose not stand by rand Paul.

  19. F16hoser says:

    America is a “Battlefield?” Did Insane-McCain actually say that? This is a classic “Bait and Switch.” Our elected servants said we would fight the enemy over there so we wouldn’t have to over here. The real enemy is in Washington DC. Becomes clearer everyday!

  20. Donna g says:

    Did any of these folks read the Constitution before they ran for the Senate?
    Apparently Sen Rand is one of the few who did read it and it shows!

    • Ian Hawk says:

      They ALL read it! They’re lawyers and studied constitutional law when in college.
      You’re right, Sen. Rand and a handful of others read it and abide by it. The rest hate it, reject it and ignore it. There’s a word for them T.R.A.I.T.O.R!

  21. rev. dave says:

    Proof positive that we need a grassroots ‘throw the bums out’ voting movement. I’ll be voting ‘ABI’ – Anybody But Incumbents – for a few rounds of election in order to clean out the pus in DC and end the festering anti-Liberty, anti-Constitution infection.

  22. Greg Workman says:

    The feds have all ready done this twice that I recall. It was reported that they, the feds were going to fly over randy Weavers’ cabin & drop drums of fuel on it then set it on fire, if they could not get him to surrender. In Philly Pa. sometime in the late 70’s, the city police dropped a fire bomb on some criminals hide out, set it on fire which consumed an entire city block of houses.Which left some 100 people homeless… So it has all ready been done, from a helicopter, just not a drone! So, what’s new with the idea?

    • Ian Hawk says:

      They also did it to Koresch in Waco.. remember the complex completely engulfed in fire while the American flag flying was at full display with a 25 mph wind? I watched one of the tanks the feds used to “only penetrate the door in order to introduce tear gas” actually a flame was on the end of the boom and the driver punched a hole the size of the tank into the wall, creating an opening for wind to blow through and set fire to the building. Didn’t take much time after that (minutes) to burn it to the ground.
      Days later Texas Rangers were on site conducting an investigation, they found spent canisters of incendiary devices scattered around the burn site and there was a shit storm about all that even ending up on lame stream media. Fedds were caught in a very embarassing position.
      Hmmm… imagine that, the fedds burning someone out of thier home.

      Here’s another tidbit… they (fedds) got thier man and all the followers then left. leaving behind all kinds of evidence. So later that decade…
      the Murra federal bldg in Okla City gets blasted, Yellow tape everywhere that says Police Line Do Not Cross. They dig out everyone they can find and within 30 days the bldg was destroyed and carted off via dump truck to several different dump sites and a nice clean swath of dirt existed just a little larger than the footprint of the bldg that used to stand there. Seems as though they learned to clean up after themselves since Waco.

  23. Greg Loftus says:

    Verterbns as far back as the revolutionary war are rooling in theirgraves. You fought the British for far less than this. The 40 year cold war was fought to prevent crap like this happeningCIA and Homeland security and a few other of the latest creations are turning into what the KGB used to tand for and probably still does under a new name. Anty senator that would support this crap suould be the first to die under it.Exacute a few of them like this and they would be sqwealin a different tune.

  24. Donna g says:

    Sure, as long as the drones fly over their houses, too.

  25. Brian G says:

    DHS is preparing for a civil uprising, preparing for war on its own citizens while most people want to just blog about it. Take a good, long look at Syria and you can see our future. Stop talking and start preparing. Talk with veterans and find where they stand. Most of all prepare your families for what is coming and what they will have to endure for the right to be free.

  26. okprepr says:

    Being a proud American and Oklahoma Native, I am trying to think of the most appropriate way to say this…… Tom Coburn, showed his true colors on this day. Dispicable. Disgusting. Vile. pathetic. He has gotten way to comfortable on tax payers teet. Piece of shit. Now I’m going to write my congressman.
    OH ITS HIM, that won’t help much!

  27. D. Geil Gustafson says:

    All these brave words will come to nothing when the self-interested, power-drunk old guard decide the only families worth drinking clean water or having sanitation services are their own families … TV, even FOX, have cow towed to D.C.

    If they could do it after Katrina they can do it tomorrow…

  28. Dr. Sanchez says:

    Then by all means the US population should have the moral right to eradicate these cockroaches from the face of the earth all the way down to their gold fish.

    Revolution is coming.
