ABC News: Obama Admin. Says Rand Paul Risking National Security by Delaying Patriot Act

May 26, 2011 2:24 PM

The Obama Administration today accused Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., of threatening national security by insisting on more debate on extension of the Patriot Act and potentially allowing it to expire at midnight.

Read more about the Kentucky senator's objection and potential lapse of the Patriot Act:


If Congress fails to pass the legislation before it expires at the end of day, it will pose “a significant risk to U.S. national security,” a senior administration official told ABC News.

“The bottom line is that if these provisions are allowed to lapse, even temporarily, the nation will be less safe,” the official said.

Whatever the Obama Administration says...

...then the complete opposite is in our best interest! They might try to bring the tent down on us all. But, we've been working without a net for a loooooooooooooooooong time anyway!


come the false flag attacks blamed on Rand

President Obama is afraid of the u.s. constitution

its a national threat to politicians everywhere.

"The" Nation Will Be Unsafe?

You must remember THEY are talking about THEIR security for THEIR Nation State called The United States which is the District of Columbia not us peasants in the provinces. We are perfectly "safe" except from THEM. The Muslims have no beef with us. It is the D. C. War machine and The New York Banksters the Muslims fight. What I am trying to say is D.C. KNOWS we Americans are figuring out that all The People on Earth a have been declared The Enemy by The Beast which resides in Washington D.C. Neither The Constitution nor The Ten mile Square "district have succeeded in "distraining" The Beast. The Beast has been unleashed and is insanely running rampant all over The Earth taking precious Lives, Liberty, and Property from innocent people.

This killer rabid Dog must be put down.

Remember THEIR CONGRESS declared The American People The Enemy in 1933!
Read Trading With The Enemy Act 1933. It is right there.

Our 50 countries were the first to be fully re-occupied by The Rhodesian Empire (revived British Empire) in the late 1800's before they moved on to enslave the rest of This Planet with their corporations, banks, oil cartels, debtor currencies and bullshit legal systems that glorify THEIR theft and even murder by THEIR SOCIETY MEMBERS against us and imprison innocent Americans for victimless political crimes against THEIR CRIMINAL STATE, New Rome.

This Plantation is being locked down for The Final Solution, a forced liquidation sale of America and The American Serfs/ The Plantation slaves. The "Company/ Plantation" is going out of business and everything including your (butt) is for sale to the highest bidder.

They are accusing Rand Paul of taking the surveilance chains off of the peasants who might then be able to organize and overthrow "Their Nation" The United States which is not and never was these United States.

It is We, The Long Abused and Deceived American Plantation Workers that THEY fear, of course THEY do not fear THEIR own CIA created "terrorists".

It is us We Americans that THEY must watch, search, intimidate, imprison and kill to maintain THEIR subjugation and Reign of Terror over our countries.


Rand is in a lot of trouble, they are setting him up for charges of treason against The Crown.
Of which he and his dad are absolutely guilty.

So were Thomas Paine, Sam Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry.....

May God protect Rand Paul, Son of Ron Paul in his courageous, singular stand against The Beast.

David vs. Goliath all over again.

No doubt The Emperor will secretly sentence Ron and Rand Paul to hang. How The British Loyalists plan to hang Our Leaders is what we need to figure out, and head off, no pun intended.

The Oracle

the nation will be less safe.

the nation will be less safe. We might actually stop letting FBI arrest and search innocent people without a warrant. Who doesn't realize the CIA knows whats going on all the time?

Watching Rand on C-SPAN now...

Boy, does he look tired. Go RAND! Beat back the unreasoning, heavy hand of government!

who doesn't think

that if the PA fails to pass, there will be a false flag / black op to justify more "emergency powers"?

"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav

My first thought too.

Blow up a mall somewhere and blame it on Rand.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

the ABC article:
"...The Senate’s top Republican, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, this morning emphasized that “nothing in this extension has ever been found to be unconstitutional,” telling his colleagues that it is “absolutely imperative” that they pass the extension..."

I think McConnell had better read the Constitution again! Does he have poor reading comprehension skills? The whole Patriot Act is one, bit, fat, ugly, unconstitutional stinking pile of dog crap!!

It is true not having the Patriot Act allows stuff like this to

So why last minute

Agree that Patriot act is bad, Rand is good, Whitehouse is fearmonger, et al.

Buy why do they wait until the Wednesday before the Friday deadline to consider a debate? Or does none of the procedural hooey do anything until then?

Putting the traitors in the senate

on record. Pure genius.

"I know major allies who fund them" Gen. Dempsey referring to ISIS

Traitors !!!

Thats why they tried everything to not allow a vote on his amendments.

Now its a scarlet letter, traitor everyone of them.


Revving up the old White

Freedom Wins!

Dear Mr. President, Do you have proof or supporting studies?

Or are we just supposed to accept your proclamations?

No Sale!

Free includes debt-free!

Keep us Safe?

"The bottom line is that if these provisions are allowed to lapse, even temporarily, the nation will be less safe,”

The governments job is to keep us free, we can keep ourselfs safe.

Durbin Made a Mistake

He made a mistake worrying about the Constitutional rights of Americans. Our rights, which the Constitution requires the government to protect in executing its authorized activity, are ours, regardless of our nationality. The rights are human. The Constitution requires the government to respect the rights of all people and not to violate them.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

He Must Be Doing Something Right

All he wanted was a debate.

Go Rand Go!

Right on Rand!

Real eyes realize real lies

We want our country back

Every year is a year for Ron Paul!

Bad Rand! How dare you slow the march of fascism.

You're being selfish Senator Paul. How could you deprive all those enemies of freedom a chance to spy, molest and torture their fellow citizens?

*Ba-dum-bump* Nice piece of sarcasm!
