As many of you know I tweeted SO much that I wound up in the Twitter Gulag. So I came up with a new word ‘FilaTweet’ :)

“It’s been like pulling teeth to get him to say that he’ll support the Constitution,” he added, referring to John Brennan.

* C-Span experienced viewership levels rarely seen (The channel does not release ratings, but called the day “robust.”)

* The hashtag #IstandwithRand topped the Twitter charts.

* Even Liberals like Van Jones, actor John Cusack the far Left group Code Pink were supporting the filibuster.

State run Media Coverage

This picture Says it all to me:

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., walks to a waiting vehicle as he leaves the Capitol after his filibuster of the nomination of John Brennan to be CIA director on Capitol Hill in Washington, early Thursday, March 7, 2013. Senate Democrats pushed Wednesday for speedy confirmation of John Brennan’s nomination to be CIA director but ran into a snag after Paul began a lengthy speech over the legality of potential drone strikes on U.S. soil. But Paul stalled the chamber to start what he called a filibuster of Brennan’s nomination. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak)

Sen. Rand Paul in his first interview since his nearly 13 hour filibuster ended Thursday morning told radio host Glenn Beck that he will not vote for CIA nominee John Brennan unless the White House offers clarification on its secretive drone program.

(Note Brennan speeches begin @ 2pm est)

“I won’t vote for him on any of the votes if I don’t get information from the White House saying they’re going to adhere to the Constitution,” he said.

He reiterated that he’s not against the Obama administration and he’s not against drones. Rather, he simply wants to know what authority the White House believes it has in using drones on U.S. citizens.

“I try to make it less about President Obama and [more about] what if someday we elect someone who would abuse this power,” he said, adding they are legitimate tools of war. “I want to kill terrorists … and I think if you’re in a battlefield fighting us, you don’t get due process.”

The Blaze

On Obama’s civil liberties flip-flop:

“I think its also safe to say that Barack Obama of 2007 would be right down here with me arguing against this drone-strike program if he were in the Senate.”

On John Brennan:

“I have hounded and hounded and hounded him… Only after yanking his chain… does he say he’s going to obey the law. We should be alarmed by that.”

~ MY personal favorite…
On his colleagues in the Senate:

“If there were an ounce of courage in this body I would be joined by other senators… saying they will not tolerate this.”



On White House “kill list”: “The people on the list might be me.”

On Congress: “Nothing ever happens around here.”

Top 10 Quotes From Rand Paul’s Amazing Filibuster

GOP Senators That Participated:

The White House had nothing to say on Wednesday.

Several GOP senators joined Paul in his crusade, however, many others didn’t and were not in attendance. Further, very few Democrats participated. Just one Democrat joined in the filibuster, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.).

The Republican senators who participated in the filibuster with Paul include, Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Mike Lee (R-Utah), Pat Toomey (R-Penn.), John Thune (R-S.D.), John Barrasso (R-Wy.), Tim Scott (R-S.C.), John Cornyn (R-Texas), Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.).

When the late comers began to file in, I knew it was to give the sign they wanted Rand to end it. Especially when McConnell spoke. ~JP

There are a total of 47 Republican members of the U.S. Senate, meaning 33 other GOP senators sat out the filibuster protesting the federal government’s controversial drone program. To find out who those senators are, comb through the full list here.

At obama’s dinner:

Sens. John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Tom Coburn, Kelly Ayotte, Pat Toomey, Bob Corker, Ron Johnson, Saxby Chambliss, John Hoeven, Dan Coats, Richard Burr and Mike Johanns. Toomey, Johnson and Chambliss headed to the Senate floor later that night.

Millions of Americans and others around the world participated via Twitter Wednesday night, making #StandWithRand the number one trending topic worldwide on the social network.

Senator Cruz JUST read this on Senate Floor in Rand’s filibuster:

Col Travis’s speech at the Alamo ..

Colonel David Crockett of Tennessee, played by John Wayne, explains to a young native Texian woman named Flaca why people should be willing to make sacrifices to crush evil, and how that validates the worthiness of a person’s life. He characterizes doing right as being alive, and doing wrong as tantamount to a walking “dead man”.

Here is a take on ‘all the shootings bombarded in the news. Many of us believe they are deliberately provoked. You decide. All of us conservative Warriors have been shoved, pushed to the wall. We are all tired being bombarded, BOMBED with their tactics. This is no coincidence. obamacare pg 1001: Mark of the Beast. ~ JP

Note the Title ‘Nudge’…Note that the cover has ‘elephants’

From the last line of the story:

The French carbon tax was envisaged as a means to nudge industry toward systemic change by pushing up the cost of using products and services based on fossil fuels.
There’s that word again … nudge.

Doesn’t Obama’s Information and Regulatory Affairs Czar, Cass Sunstein, like to use the word nudge, too?

The Nudge blog is the online companion to Richard Thaler and Cass Sunstein’s “Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness.” Here you’ll find much more about nudging, choice architecture, libertarian paternalism, and many other terms you won’t read about in standard economics books.

JUST look for the ‘true’ meaning of their phraseology. I do with every word every one of them speak. IT IS in the chosen ‘word’.

It’s good to see there are others who are willing to nudge back on Sarkozy’s and Obama’s socialist changes – Brett Simpson

This would be a great Patriotic home schooling lesson!

President Eisenhower told a Women’s Conference:

“I have just come from assisting in the dedication of a new stamp…on it also is stated ‘IN GOD WE TRUST’…”

Eisenhower stated October 24, 1954 at the 75th Anniversary of the Incandescent Lamp:

Let us make sure that familiarity has not made them meaningless for us:

Atheism substitutes men for the Supreme Creator and this leads inevitably to domination and dictatorship…

Our Government is servant, not master, our chosen representatives are our equals, not our czars or commissars.”

He went on to say:

We must jealously guard our foundation in faith. For on it rests the ability of the American individual to live and thrive in this blessed land – and be able to help other less fortunate people to achieve freedom and individual opportunity. These we take for granted, but to others they are often only a wistful dream. ‘IN GOD WE TRUST.’ Often have we heard the words of this wonderful American motto. Let us make sure that familiarity has not made them meaningless for us. We carry the torch of freedom as a sacred trust for all mankind. We do not believe that God intended the light that He created to be put out by men.”

For on it rests the ability of the American individual to live and thrive in this blessed land-and to be able to help other less fortunate people to achieve freedom and individual opportunity. These we take for granted, but to others they are often only a wistful dream.

It seems so, so long…JUST one year ago today our hearts were broken. ~ JP

I see Andrew every day. When I fire up my buddy list there is Bodiaz bringing his dose of happy-sad. Thanks, someone, for not turning his computer off.

On the one-year anniversary of his death, many folks will speak of Andrew’s loss to the cause. Go ahead and cube that vacuum a few times. It’s true, in some measure he lives on in all of us. When I was out campaigning for Romney last year, all my tough decisions were decided by a simple What Would Andrew Do?

But for me, and many, it’s not about politics or movements. I’m still mourning the small “b” Breitbart. I miss my friend terribly. I loved the guy.

A few days after Andrew’s funeral last year I wrote a song. It was never meant for public consumption. With his wife’s Susie’s permission, here’s the demo/lyric:


Here

Gone

Unfinished Song

All was there

All is lost

No Silver Linings

No God’s will

No Sense or Reason

Our heart is still

All that remains is moving on

Lessened

Cheated

Robbed us all

I can’t stand to say goodbye

Oh No…

Memories

Not enough

In the Home of the Brave

You were the best of the lot

There’s no replacing

This hole won’t fill

Death is cold and it’s cruel

Real and unreal

All that remains is to carry on

With Tears and Riddles

We’ll never solve

Here at the bridge we will never cross

Here at the bridge…Lost

I can’t stand to say goodbye

I can’t stand to say goodbye

I can’t stand to say goodbye

Goodbye

Oh No…

“One of the founding pillars of this nation was freedom of speech and freedom of expression and when we give up that freedom by succumbing to political correctness,” Carson said that Americans are allowing that underpinning to be compromised “without debate.”

Dr. Carson said he believes God is with him, and “if God is for you who can be against you?”

“Is it harder to follow God when you want or do not want to do something?” For Dr. Carson, he believes God opens and closes doors and to pray for guidance and see how it feels. He said while some things may feel glamorous, it may not “feel right” and that is what really matters.

He also explained where he falls on the political compass and how he supports the constitution:

Beck and Dr. Carson went on to discuss a range of issues including wealth, the medical community, politicians, and whether or not he would ever run for office:

Following the prayer breakfast, Carson revealed that he actually refused repeated requests from the White House to furnish an advance copy of his speech prior to the event.

Carson told The Hill that he rebuffed the White House’s request because he does not write out his speeches in advance of speaking engagements.

“I told them that I don’t have an advance copy because I don’t write out my speeches and I don’t use teleprompters,” he told The Hill. “They asked more than once … I gave them the [Biblical] texts around which the remarks would be framed … I said read those texts, the remarks will be framed around those … that should have told them something.”

“I always pray before I give a speech and ask God to tell me what to say,” the doctor explained in an interview with the Daily Caller about the backlash from his remarks.

In terms of whether or not his speech was offensive, Dr. Carson said it could only be construed as offensive “if you’re an ideologue and don’t like to have anyone challenge what you think.”

But if you’re an individual who understands what our government is supposed to be — and that is something for, of and by the people — then it’s not offensive at all when one of the people comes out with some suggestions; it’s not seen as an attack.”

~ Reverse Racism in Play

Joe Reed of the Alabama DemocRat Party (see the Truth about Joe below). Frightening to think Joe is one of Alabama’s 12 most influential people. He is connected to the other upstart, Paul Hubbert- Executive secretary Alabama Education Association. He’s vice chairman of the Democratic Party and is chairman of the $12 billion teachers retirement system board, which is part of the Retirement Systems of Alabama. He and AEA associate executive secretary Joe Reed merged black and white education organizations in 1969, forming a modern and unified AEA. Hubbert also carried on in Montgomery yesterday and is also one of the 12.

Artur Davis, knows these politics and ran from them, ran all the way to the GOP and moved out of state. His mother went to Alabama State with Joe. She was secretary in the SGA, Joe was President. Arturo has known Joe since he was a child. But that doesn’t mean they stayed friends.


It is important to note Reed, 70, has very dirty hands with Unions/Teachers, uses his group’s base, the court systems and legislative reapportionment apparatus to draw legislative, state school board and congressional district lines. Reed drafted legislative district plans in 1982 and 1992, which increased black representation in the House from 13 to 27 and in the state Senate from 3 to 8.

“We’re the only state in the nation that has black elected legislative representation equal to black population.”

Rant Begins @ 1:45:

“For those who say that things are all right because we’ve got a black president let them come to Alabama,” former Ala. Democratic Party official Joe Reed said. “It was the state of Alabama and the state of Mississippi where the Voting Rights Act was considered to be most needed – these states gave Barack Obama fewer votes than any states in the nation. Racism, racism, racism is very much alive!”

Supporters of the act rallied outside the court today including busloads of Alabamians who say Section 5 is still needed to protect minority voters in places with troubled racial pasts.

Shelby County today argued that Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act that requires certain states like Alabama to get “preclearance” or permission from the government before redrawing districts or polling places is outdated, in part because the formula the government uses is based on voting data from 1964.

At least four of the court’s conservative justices seemed to agree, with swing vote Justice Anthony Kennedy asking how long states like Alabama must live “under the trusteeship of the united states government.”

My FOX Alabama

I would like to give you a little background on Joe Reed, whom I liken to Sharpton & Jackson. And his connection, as many racists, like Wright, Ellison, etc. with obama.

In March of 2008, in obama’s race against Clinton for the nomination, obama was one convention delegate ahead. Alabama AFL-CIO President Stewart Burkhalter as an unpledged add-on delegate for the convention. Burkhalter, who was backed by the Obama campaign, won by six voters over Jerome Green of Birmingham, who was supported by Clinton’s team. Burkhalter pledged his vote to barry.

Obama won Alabama’s presidential primary on Feb. 5 by 14 percentage points back then. HOW that happened I don’t have a clue. Considering Reed cries foul on southern racist votes. Sixty-five people paid the $50 qualifying fee to run for the 10 Obama spots. That I also did not know. Pay to vote for obama, hmmm.

The interesting part is where Joe comes in:

“You wouldn’t want someone who supported another candidate to select the delegates,” Coleman said.

“That’s just a lie,” Reed said. “They had some folks they wanted to pay off.”

Then in April of last year, the Truth about Joe became apparent.

A quiet storm brewed inside the Alabama Democratic Party (ADP). Emails were forwarded, notarized letters were Fedex’ed, members of the State Democratic Executive Committee met to hand deliver notarized letters … to what purpose? A formal challenge (filed Thursday with the DNC’s Rules & Bylaws Committee, or RBC) to Dr. Joe L. Reed’s credentials as an “uncommitted” Party Leader/Elected Official (PLEO) delegate to the Democratic National Convention.

The basis for this challenge is that Dr. Reed appeared as both “uncommitted PLEO” and “Barack Obama PLEO” on the ballot at the April 14 SDEC meeting.

From the credentials challenge:

The issue is simple: you can’t hedge your bets. The challenged individual ran in Alabama at the PLEO level simultaneously pledged for opposing presidential preferences. Please see exhibit A. Essentially he “double-dipped” to increase his chance of selection. Rule 12(A) requires all supporters to choose and “be identified as to presidential preference or uncommitted status” at any given level. The language is clear because “or” requires a choice between mutually exclusive options. Rule 12(D) provides further guidance. The challenged became a “bona fide supporter” of Barack Obama when OFA certified him in writing. Therefore, the challenged cannot satisfy Rule 12(J) requiring he “reflect the sentiments of those who elected them.” Simply put, a certified Obama supporter can’t fairly represent uncommitted voters.

The challenge asserts that all males running as “uncommitted” were injured by Dr. Reed’s double dipping. They ask that he “be retroactively stricken from the uncommitted ballot as a corrective remedy,” a remedy which would cascade through the “uncommitted” male delegates as alternates move up in the PLEO and at-large categories.

The challenge also expresses concern for the integrity of future elections if Dr. Reed’s precedent of standing in more than one camp is allowed:

In this case, it can be argued, the challenged individual demonstrated a flagrant disregard for core democratic principles and created a dangerous precedent for 2016. Just like you can’t qualify in multiple districts to increase your odds, you also can’t run for multiple presidential candidates at the same level. Cast in a familiar light, consider it’s 2008 and someone couldn’t choose so they ran for both Barack and Hillary. Left unchallenged we will see this practice deployed widespread next cycle. It is imperative the RBC act decisively to deter further manipulation.

… If unscrupulous people are allowed to run at the same level for multiple presidential candidates they will be unfairly advantaged. Additionally, the RBC’s failure to intervene will greenlight this behavior to other states.

The controversy arises because Dr. Joe L. Reed is the person who did it and his are the credentials being challenged. He’s vice-chair of the SDEC, head of the minority caucus, chairman of the Alabama Democratic Conference and generally the Big Dog in the ADP.

To tell Dr. Reed that the rules apply to him the same as they apply to other people and to revoke his credentials at all levels would be like a cyclone sweeping through the ADP’s power structure.

So you see the connection of Joe Reed JUST being another racist for obama. You see he’s typical lib, by ‘hook or crook to get his way. He likes causing trouble. He enjoys being an upstart. And get this he has a son, Steven Reed is a familiar house-hold name in Montgomery. Frightening he is now a Probate Judge.

Joe has an interesting comment on our Constitution:

I mean who’s worried anymore about some racist language in the constitution? That’s symbolic.

This coming from someone who is using ‘race’ as his game plan. Jessie and Jessie Jr thrive in Alabama as well. I have seen many parallels in the 5 years I’ve been here, to Alabama politics with the Machine in Illinois. Here they are JUST named ‘Reed’. ~ JP

“Glory Hounds.” Its focus is on the combat dogs used in Afghanistan to sniff out buried explosive devices. The program has a fair amount of feel-good filler about the bond between the dogs and their handlers, but when it comes to showing these pairs at work, it is blunt and disturbing.

These dogs have been credited with saving many lives.

I will be watching…

Air Force Tech. Sgt. Leonard Anderson and a bomb-detecting dog, Azza, an 8-year-old Belgian Malinois, in Afghanistan. Animal Planet television special “Glory Hounds,” included coverage of Air Force Tech. Sgt. Anderson and his team, when they embedded four camera crews with front line troops for six weeks. “Glory Hounds” airs Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/PT and repeats on Feb. 24 at 9 a.m. ET/PT.
