Revolt FTL

If justice is what the people want, justice is what they'll get.

Everybody wants to be free, or at least that's what they claim. Everybody wants justice, or at least that's what they claim. You'll only be free when you have your liberty, and in a world that wants what injustice offers, you'll never have your liberty without justice.

Throwing out our leaders won't work. Revolts won't work. Revolution won't work. What we need is a renaissance built on a foundation of liberty, and then I promise, no revolts will be required. There will be NOTHING that can stop us, and that's what Elenour Clift fears.

She doesn't fear revolt. Revolt will legitimize her position. She fears Rand Paul and Libertarians, but not because we're preparing for any kind of revolt.

We're preparing for a world that stops listening to her and starts serving justice rather than injustice.

mindless twit on tv

just another mindless twit on tv , go figure arent they all mindless twits ?

stir revolt, i think lying to the people consistently is what stirs revolt.

The Founding Fathers

didn't start a revolt against the British government, they stopped the British government from their unlawful tyranny over Americans. Rand is not starting a revolt against the fed gov, he is attempting to stop the fed gov's unlawful tyranny over Americans.

Rand Paul, and those of us like him, aren't starting ANYTHING! We/He are/is trying to STOP something!

Tyranny. And she is a big part of it!

Eleanor Clift, Newsweek Reporter. Friend or Foe?

Eleanor Clift, reporter.

She is a regular panelist on the nationally syndicated show The McLaughlin Group, which she has compared to "a televised food fight." Example:

    "But I think what we're coming to grips with is the fact that we actually have a mercenary Army, and it doesn't have a nice ring to it. We call it 'volunteers', but we're basically paying people to serve their country. And if you're going to pay people and have a mercenary Army, you're going to have to pay the market rate. And so the bounties are going up—more money for tuition, higher enlistment bonuses—and I think it's appropriate." - Elenor Clift, McLaughlin "Food Fight" Participant. Relief Pitcher. Based loaded. No outs. August 27, 2005

Eleanor Clift (born July 7, 1940) is a political reporter ("Food Fighter"), television pundit and author. Newsweek magazine. Contributing editor for . Her column, "Capitol Letter", is posted each week on the Newsweek and MSNBC websites.

First marriage was to William Brooks Clift, Jr. (1919–1986), the brother of the actor Montgomery Clift. They had three sons: Edward Montgomery, Woodbury Blair, and Robert Anderson. In September 1989, she married Tom Brazaitis, a Washington columnist for the Cleveland Plain Dealer. They remained together until his death of kidney cancer on 30 March 2005.

Eleanor's hypocrisy is on display...

for all to see, i.e., Rand's opposition to drones is tame compared to the inflamatory rhetoric used by Eleanor during George W's administration. Not that W's treasonous policies didn't warrant condemnation, but when Obama builds on his predecessors treasonous policies, the left is virtually silent.

Damn Right

Damn right, people are revolting...en masse. Time for the crooked corptocracy to quietly step down before all is revealed and they face the prison sentences they deserve.

The corporate "news" can parade the criminals around as reality show stars all they want....but the people are waking up to it.

Thomas Jefferson has a dozen great quotes that apply:

thought these seemed most fitting: "When the people fear the government, there is tyranny, when the government fears the people, there is liberty."

"a Bill of Rights are what the people are entitled to against any government, and what no just government should refuse, or rest on inference."

It is not a revolt...

It's a rEVOLution

Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof

Ahhhh, partisanship! Watch where you tread!

I think she is having a very hard time admitting the fact that she agrees with Rand a, hated by the left, Libertarian Republican, so she has to put the extremist taint on it to wipe the Libertarian poo off her boots.

What ever happened to just being an American?

If my need to be RIGHT is greater than my desire for TRUTH, then I will not recognize it when it arrives ~ Libertybelle

Eleanor, like Rush, Hannity,

Eleanor, like Rush, Hannity, Krugman etc. is ALL about D vs R.

Rand dared to suggest that it might be reasonable for citizens to fear the US govt. Eleanor cannot allow this idea to take hold as long as the leader of the US govt is a member of her cult.

Is there any doubt what she would be saying if Rand was asking the question of Bush? Is there any doubt as to Rush or Hannity's reaction?

I think

that woman has a hard time making friends.


She is a statist douche

A good question to ask her - and other progressive/neocons - is what is more important, the survival of the US government or freedom and individual liberties?

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."

What's that you say?

A revolt?? Count me in!!

"This is where the left and right do meet"

about as good a slogan as "stand with Rand".

If you see something, say something, the government is listening.

I happened to catch this South Park episode last night, awesome.


Matt and Trey seem almost psychic... lol! I quit watching this show years ago, thought they lost their edge, but my son came over and pulled it up. I was pretty amused. Who started "Stand with Rand?" I half wondered if Matt or Trey did - lol! I really like "Stand your ground" better (I know that is not the show's saying.) My biggest "fear" with Rand is that they are going to make this about HIM, so them any personality trait that they can demonize can split his support. If people are standing for THEMSELVES, then all Rand needs to do is show integrity and stand HIS ground, too.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

The issues regarding the morality of drones

and their anonymous pilots has been addressed long ago and is nothing but a side show. As soon as aircraft were utilized as bombers this became a hot topic. The incendiary firebombing of cities, most notably Dresden which was built of mostly stick framed housing, that occurred in WW II as well as the utilization of nuclear weapons against the Japanese had the public's blessing as it was occurring. On the flip side we should look at what public opinion succeeded in doing with regards to the indiscriminate bombing of Hanoi in the 1970's. Kudo's to Rand Paul for taking this issue and at least getting the public to contemplate how it might feel to be a target of such anonymous and indiscriminate assassination program.

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

Serious accusation from clueless media zombie.

Af course, National Public Television worhips the government that funds it. She's not about to bite the feeds her.

So she throws the people's Rights under the bus sensing a threat to her future as a tax parasite.

Free includes debt-free!

I don't think she knows it, but she agrees with Rand


ELEANOR CLIFT, NEWSWEEK: Well, first of all, drones are here to stay. They are the 21st Century modern tool of war. And in many ways they are a blessing.

But, they bring all sorts of ethical and moral concerns, and there should be some sort of judicial review. And the program that appears to be the most troubling is the one run by the CIA. And that’s the one that’s been targeting Afghanistan and Pakistan.

That's funny

She acts like she can't say it... it's unspeackable,, and then it's pulled out of her and it's so shocking... what an act. LOL

She didn't hear the fillabuster...


what a nutcase. The neocons (from both parties)are the ones that are doing such a good job at making sure that everyone hates America.


These Geriatrics just dont get it....

Can't even defend the 'Bill of Rights' for Americans

without being charged with sedition. (Talk about hypocrisy!) Get a grip on reality, Clift, before we all go over the 'tyranny rules' cliff with you.

Propagandist trash

their hubris is will be their end. Hopefully sooner rather than later...


Liberty = Responsibility

Note to Eleanor

Do you ever listen to yourself? If you do, are you embarrassed?
