Brennan Confirmed 63-34 as New CIA Director.

After a protracted and unpredictable Washington political drama, the Senate began voting Thursday on the nomination of John Brennan to be director of the Central Intelligence Agency.


It was close, 60 votes were needed for confirmation. Good effort to Rand and the freedom candidates who helped!

I called both offices of Tester and Baucus and asked their receptionist about the delinquencies of both senators for failing to support Rand's filibuster. Both receptionists hemmed and hawed while fumbling words about some other commitment. Well, senators, evidently you think the issue of allowing the POTUS to unilaterally attack a citizen of a sovereign state which will provoke another civil war isn't really important. Montanans should remember this indifference by Tester and Baucus to the possibility of being targeted when they vote in 2014 and beyond.

A new slogan for senators absent in the stand against unilateral attacks on American citizens by the POTUS and the US military, "Where Were You?" Although written about the aftermath of hurricane, Katrina, I'm reminded of the lyrics to Jackson Browne's song, "Where Were You", when I think of these indifferent senators.

Dining with Obama

A dozen RINO senators were dining with Obama, likely discussing ways to collect more government revenue and plotting the next war in the Middle East. Maybe they were discussing the usefulness of unlimited drone strikes in the Infinite War on Terror.

Oregon Dem votes no

The no votes are listed here.

I'm confused

I like the cut of his jib, though he's openly socialist.

Southern Agrarian


He's got Rand's fillabuster to remind him what the American people think about drones.


God-damned right. The bitches that dined with Obama definitely voted yes.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.
