Sen Paul Distracts Public While House Approves $1 Trillion Budget Increase

Sen Paul Distracts Public While House Approves $1 Trillion Budget Increase


Paul claimed a victory with this “answer”; however it is glossed over in the mainstream media that the response from Holder did not clarify who is a combatant.

Based on the National Defense Authorization Act, anyone can be suspected of being a combatant by having alleged ties to a terrorist group.

Just recently, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) have said that constitutionalists and anti-government groups are extremists and liken to being terrorist organizations.

While both the mainstream and alternative media were focused on the dog-and-pony show conducted by Paul and Holder regarding drones, the House of Representatives approved a bill that would grant funding to the federal government through September of 2013 while a supposed major budget cut is running rampant, stifling the economic stance of the US government.

House Representative Harold Rogers, head of the Appropriations Committee introduced this resolution to the tune of $982 billion (just shy of 1 trillion dollars) to avoid a near complete governmental shutdown at the end of this month.The very same day of Paul’s 13 hour filibuster, the House secured funding for the federal government at the expense of taxpayer and under cover of a 13 hour distraction.

While the rest of the country faces sequestering measures, the US Military Industrial Complex will be well funded to conduct their business.

The Department of Defense (DoD), the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and Planned Parenthood would continue to remain funded with that nearly $1 trillion appropriated by the House resolution.

Tamara Keith of NPR explains: “Democrats and the White House have made it clear they don’t like this bill because it locks in across-the-board spending cuts and only gives additional budget flexibility to the Defense and Veterans Affairs departments. Senate leaders say they plan to make changes to allow other agencies more flexibility as well. But they aren’t planning to undo the sequester cuts, which means a fight that would threaten a government shutdown is unlikely.”

John Brennan, the Assassination Czar, was sworn in this week as the new director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) by Vice President Joe Biden. The Obama camp made a special note that Brennan took his oath of office over “an original draft of the Constitution that had George Washington’s personal handwriting and annotations on it, dating from 1787.”

The symbolic tone surrounding the document Brennan swore allegiance to was the version of the Constitution prior to the inclusion of the Bill of Rights; “which did not officially go into effect until December 1791 after ratification by states.”original

The statement here is that Brennan swore to uphold the rights of Americans except their freedom of speech, right to bear arms and right to not have to be subjected to unreasonable searches and seizures.

so what the hell else is new...

Our gov has been doing this constantly regardless of the "stunts" being performed. This would have gone down regardless of the filibuster. Was it an opportunistic move? sure maybe, but the notion that this is some kind of pre planned distraction by Rand for the establishment is ridic. And does anyone have any real evidence any more before spouting their mouths? Rand didn't even know he was going to do this until the time came. If you don't recall it was by happen stance that Rand even got the floor. I am not even a Rand supporter, and this is getting old even for me.

Can't anyone just be happy about more awareness to the drone program. That was the whole point. There are millions more paying attention to this now then prior. Does that just count for nothing? The "NWO" is not going to fall over night for crying out loud, to all you folks that believe in that conspiracy.

Everyone is always complaining about being marginalized. But when there is real opportunity to bring people to our beliefs, all the sudden the same people complaining about being placed on the "fringe" become gate keepers like they are some kind of know all be all authority to freedom. It's hypocritical, and helps no one.

Who here honestly believes Ron Paul himself disproves of the filibuster?

i do not support nor oppose Rand

he's done plenty i disagree with.
he did provide some common ground with my lib neighbors and me.
i will give him credit where it's due.

"The two weakest arguments for any issue on the House floor are moral and constitutional"
Ron Paul

Hey entropypress

Don't worry. Rand is playing chess. He's just using politics but he's moving our agenda forward. He's chipping away at the establishment bit by bit. Remember, big changes don't happen fast. Be patient and trust Rand, he's going to turn everything around once he fools the whole country into voting for him for president, then he'll reveal that he's a Libertarian and fix everything.

I know right now it seems like Washington is still just rolling right along (over us) but don't worry, Rand is chipping away. Soon the nation will be 20, 30, 40 or 100 trillion in debt, the currency wrecked, civil war raging and the Federal Government slaughtering citizens. But don't worry, no one will get killed with a drone, (except for combatants, who deserve to get killed) and Rand will still be making those important political inroads that will allow the Liberty Movement to one day seize power in Washington.

I just wanted to tell you to relax because we are winning and everything is alright.

These are the slippery games

this NWO government will play to do whatever they please. Are we really surprised?


very informative.

Obviously it was all coordinated

Yes, obviously Rand Paul is secretly working with Obama and the military industrial complex to publicly stand for the Constitution ...

.. while actually, secretly, acting to cover up the 1 trillion dollar budget increase!

Of course. They're so smart. Why didn't I see it coming??

Now I feel so stupid.

Oh so now its Rands fault...of course

and the whole silly Drone issue isn't important and he should have just sat on his hands so that we wouldn't have been distracted. Everything now is Rands fault. The very next unconstitutional thing Obama does will be Rands Fault. I don't know what it is yet but I'm sure there will be something tomorrow as it's an everyday occurrence. Be sure to twist the knife extra hard and smile at Papa Paul while your doing it. (honestly this rand rage is wearing thin)

Does critical thinking exist in America? I'm beginning to wonder.

Sure it exists, your question answered itself

Here's what I wanna know: does wag the dog exist? Politicians, for sure, whether "libertarian" or not, exist thanks to a carefully orchestrated, trans-generational, nonpartisan effort among the handlers of such so-called leaders. You know, living documents and continuity-of-government and revolutions and shadowy mind control and long knives in the dark and all that.

Mr. someone or other goes to some capital. Repeat whenever plausible, and if possible, rile up the rubes until they're singing & goose-stepping.

Hell, it's probably been playing at your local theater for thousands of years. Where do you suppose Hitler Jungen come from, or killing fields? [edit: or Frank Capra movies for that matter]

Why are the vast majority of atrocities carried out (if not planned) by people under the age of 25? Have they not yet learned how to not be evil? Have they perhaps been tricked? Are they targeted specifically with psy-ops, or are they merely more susceptible to the manipulation and the pretty lights?

Have you been to Disneyland lately and do you want your MTV? Do you like singing in the rain?

Do you own a mansion and a yacht?

Rand did not distract me from the budget increase.

I was distracted from it because of a Kung Fu Grip marathon and also the need to update my facespace status.

Defeat the panda-industrial complex

I am dusk icon. anagram me.

Would it matter if we had

Would it matter if we had seen this coming?(we really did, hat makes anyoen think they wouldnt spend more?) They would pass it anyway.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

I'm sorry.

I don't know what to say.
