  • Rand Paul Quickly Ends Filibuster Against Raising Debt Ceiling

    10/30/2015 6:56:36 AM PDT · by thetallguy24 · 18 replies
    Newsweek ^ | 10/29/15 | Polly Mosendz
    Updated | In an effort to delay passage of a bipartisan budget deal, Senator Rand Paul began a filibuster around 3 p.m. on Thursday. The effort was expected to continue through 1 a.m. on Friday, but ended after speaking for only 18 minutes and 40 seconds, according to MSNBC.  It turns out the Republican senator from Kentucky spoke against the budget bill only until the time the Senate was to vote on the deal. The Senate would have allowed Paul to continue speaking until midnight, but only if he didn't sit down or use the restroom, a physically exhausting feat if nothing else. At midnight,...

    DENVER -- in the face to conservatives." Likely speaker of the House Paul Ryan has said the process that created it "stinks." But Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is the first Republican to pledge outright that he'll try to scutter the compromise debt limit bill designed to kick any tough new vote into 2017. "I will filibuster the new debt ceiling bill," Paul said at an event on the University of Colorado's Denver campus. "It is horrible, it's hard for me not to use profanity describing it." Paul also called the bill a "steaming pile of legislation," and urged fellow Republicans...

    The Gog of Turkey, president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, said his country could not endure Russian violations any longer of its airspace in its campaign in Syria. Gog y Magog Russian involvement in the 4½-year-old Syrian civil war seems to be escalating, with NATO’s secretary general confirming Tuesday a second incursion by Russian planes into Turkish airspace and saying Russian ground troops were in Syria as well. The first violation of Turkey’s airspace is reported to have happened Saturday. The second was Sunday, officials said. Now even CNN says: The tension between Russia and Turkey, however, appears to be escalating. The...

    An obligatory follow-up to last night’s post. Sounds like my theory was largely correct: It’s not just his personal falling-out with Palin, which he elaborates on in his new Facebook post, or her embrace of the progressive Trump that’s bothering him, it’s the whole damned discombobulating phenomenon of Trumpmania among the tea party and its sympathizers.Especially its sympathizers in conservative talk radio. I do not understand her position and love of Trump. He is clearly a progressive, not a small government constitutionalist…But he is also a bully, sexist, cruel, an ego manic and narcissist in ways that makes Barack...

I'll turn him on and invariably, he'll be selling gold, emergency food rations, (I guess he's never heard of bottled water and canned food) or inside joking with his cohorts. Occasionally, his dry drunk surfaces like it did yesterday, when out of the blue, he calls Sarah Palin, "A Clown" because of the speech she gave at the Iran Nuclear rally and that she supports Trump. Then today, he increased his rhetoric on Trump referring to his speech at the Iran Nuclear rally a "Clown...

    I haven’t had a relationship with Sarah since about the time of the shooting of Gabby Giffords. Nothing to do with that at all, but it was around that time that she withdrew from me and my team and it was because, as Todd told me on the phone, “we have been told who our real friends are.” I was stunned. I had backed her hard in every way I knew how. At that time I really believed in her and in fact I really believed she had the ability to change the world for the better. While I have...

On his radio show on The Blaze yesterday, Beck lashed out at Palin over her apparent support for billionaire businessman Donald Trump. He called John McCain’s former running mate a “clown,” adding: “I’m embarrassed I once supported her.” [VIDEO] Beck: "I didn’t listen to her speech. Yeah, I’m going to say it.

Their lobbyists fawn over politicians, giving them little bits of money -- campaign contributions, plane trips, dinners, golf outings -- in exchange for huge chunks of taxpayers’ money.

    Today President Obama gave a speech at American University, urging acceptance of his nuclear deal with Iran. It was the usual exercise in deception and demagoguery, and he skated up to the edge of accusing opponents of the deal–a majority of Americans, apparently–of treason. After some initial reminiscence about the Cold War, Obama leaped right into misrepresenting the agreement’s terms: After two years of negotiations, we have achieved a detailed arrangement that permanently prohibits Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. The “prohibition” consists of a pious declaration by Iran which it can repudiate at any time. The agreement contains no...

He's also appeared alongside YouTube star GloZell Green, in the online series "Between Two Ferns," and Miami radio host DJ Laz, aka "The Pimp with the Limp." Obama has treated the White House like his own personal concert venue, complete with selfie-stick video. After all, as they say, you only live once. Meanwhile, the same week as Obama's final French-kissing session with palace guard Stewart, Obama vowed to push...

Obama said media institutions such as Fox News and political organizations were trying to profit from polarization, and that’s leaving the political...

He also signaled frustration with the National Rifle Association and gun manufacturers for blocking his proposed legislative efforts. During an interview with the “WTF Podcast,” with Marc Maron, Obama complained that gun manufacturers reaped the benefits from shootings, based on the fear that the government would take away their guns. “Each time that these events occur, ironically, gun manufacturers make out like bandits, partly because of this fear that’s churned up that the...

Rand Paul from being able to force a short-term expiration of Patriot Act surveillance authorities at midnight. The overwhelming vote Sunday came after Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., threw in the towel on advancing any short-term extensions of the Patriot Act authorities under the continuing objections of Paul, the fellow Kentuckian he has endorsed for the presidency. The Senate voted 77-17, far above the 60-vote threshold to advance the bill. Several more steps are required, however, before a vote on final passage,...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton accuses Israel of being an occupying force in her new memoir Hard Choices and claims that the Jewish state denies “dignity and self determination” to Palestinians in the West Bank. Clinton recalls being surprised by what she termed “life under occupation for the Palestinians,” according to the book. Pro-Israel officials and insiders on Capitol Hill have called Clinton’s comments tone deaf and said that her claim that Israel is an occupying force reveals a bias against the Jewish state. “When we left the city and visited Jericho, in the West Bank, I got my...

    A neoconservative clique seeks to ensnare our country in a series of wars that are not in America’s interest. The War Party may have gotten its war. But it has also gotten something it did not bargain for. Its membership lists and associations have been exposed and its motives challenged. In a rare moment in U.S. journalism, Tim Russert put this question directly to Richard Perle: “Can you assure American viewers … that we’re in this situation against Saddam Hussein and his removal for American security interests? And what would be the link in terms of Israel?” Suddenly, the Israeli...

    Outspoken Republican congressman Ron Paul says Israel had received a green light from the United States to launch an offensive in Gaza. The Texas congressman said the Israeli attack on the impoverished Gaza Strip shapes a bleak future for the whole world as it means that, "the whole idea of preemptive or preventive war is spreading." He went on to challenge the idea of Hamas threatening Israel's security and argued that "Palestinian missiles are so minor compared to the fire power of Israel, who has nuclear weapons." The US Congressman's remarks come as Israel continues to rebuff international efforts to...

    No surprise here. Remember when he called Operation Cast Lead, which was Israel’s response to thousands of Hamas rocket firings, a case of “preemptive war”? America’s Greatest Patriot wants you to believe he’s a study in non-interventionist neutrality, with his knocks on Israel a mere function of the fact that we continue to prop them up with foreign aid. Because the U.S. is kinda sorta responsible for their behavior, goes the logic, they’re fair game for criticism. Why he’d want to maintain a posture of neutrality between Israel and an eliminationist outfit like Hamas, I have no idea, but lay...

    My country has been "torn to shreds,"said Fouad Siniora, the prime minister of Lebanon, as the death toll among his people passed 300 civilian dead, 1000 wounded, with half a million homeless. Israel must pay for the "barbaric destruction," said Siniora. To the contrary, says columnist Lawrence Kudlow, "Israel is doing the Lord's work." On American TV, former Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu says the ruination of Lebanon is Hezbollah's doing. But is it Hezbollah that is using U.S.-built F-16s, with precision-guided bombs and 155-mm artillery pieces to wreak death and devastation on Lebanon? No, Israel is doing this with...

    Ron Paul: Blame Israel First http://frontpagemag.com/2011/12/13/ron-paul-not-anti-foreign-aid-anti-israel/2/ Posted by Daniel Greenfield on Dec 13th, 2011 Do you know who the latest Zionist on the block is? It’s the man who called Israel, “an aggressive, national socialist state” and suggested that the original World Trade Center bombing may have really been carried out by Israel. Then there’s the solicitation letter which boasted that this courageous fellow was exposing the, “Bohemian Grove–perverted, pagan playground of the powerful. Skull & Bones: the demonic fraternity that includes George Bush and leftist Senator John Kerry, Congress’s Mr. New Money. The Israeli lobby, which plays Congress like...

    Russia and other UN Security Council members are unhappy Washington is blocking attempts to pressure Israel over its offensive in Lebanon, Vitaly Churkin, its ambassador to the United Nations, said. Churkin told the Izvestia newspaper in an interview published today that the US position had weakened the position of the United Nations on the crisis. "Discontent has been rising recently among Security Council member countries with the fact that the US is prepared to block any decision which would bring pressure to bear on Israel," Churkin said. "This discontent is expressed practically every day by many delegations during consultations on...

    Hopefully, Russians realize that our House of Representatives often passes thunderous resolutions to pander to special interests, which have no bearing on the thinking or actions of the U.S. government. Last week, the House passed such a resolution 411-10. As ex-Rep. Ron Paul writes, House Resolution 758 is so "full of war propaganda that it rivals the rhetoric from the chilliest era of the Cold War." H. R. 758 is a Russophobic rant full of falsehoods and steeped in superpower hypocrisy. Among the 43 particulars in the House indictment is this gem: "The Russian Federation invaded the Republic of Georgia...

    Former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) accused the U.S. government of “hiding” the truth behind the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, which crashed in eastern Ukraine last month. “The U.S. government has grown strangely quiet on the accusation that it was Russia or her allies that brought down the Malaysian airliner with a Buk anti-aircraft missile,” Paul said on his news website Thursday. […] “It’s hard to believe that the U.S., with all of its spy satellites available for monitoring everything in Ukraine, that precise proof of who did what and when is not available,” the former lawmaker and GOP...

    As Vladimir Putin’s tanks begin to roll forth from Russia like Sauron’s legions from Mordor, a pair of American villains is working hard to undermine our resolve against the greatest threat from Europe to American values and power, and indeed to world peace, since Adolf Hitler.Evgeny Feldman, a photographer for the maverick Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta, recently visited a book store in Moscow and tweeted [1] a photograph from amongst its shelves. Among volumes on one topical shelf such as The Crimes of the U.S.A. and The Third World War and Forward to Victory, in which authors offered bloodthirsty...

    Just days after the tragic crash of a Malaysian Airlines flight over eastern Ukraine, Western politicians and media joined together to gain the maximum propaganda value from the disaster. It had to be Russia; it had to be Putin, they said. President Obama held a press conference to claim - even before an investigation - that it was pro-Russian rebels in the region who were responsible. His ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power, did the same at the UN Security Council - just one day after the crash! While western media outlets rush to repeat government propaganda on the event,...
