Was against willy-nilly drone strikes before he was for them. Must have gotten sideways with his neocon handlers.

Maybe they promised to let him sit behind the joy stick for some of the upcoming automated death raids from the sky. I hear they are giving medals for that now.

reminds me of michael jacksons

n psychology, cognitive dissonance is the excessive mental stress and discomfort[1] experienced by an individual who holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values at the same time.

Anybody see the similarity?

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

I wonder if he and others would consider the following...

The US economy collapses. No jobs, no money, no food and people are mad as hell at Washington. It's reached epic proportions of affected Americans.

Groups form to take back the country. Armed with AR-15s and 30-round mags they march on Washington. Local law enforcement is no match for the number of citizens. Half the group consist of former and active military veterans.


Anyone remember Kent State? Peaceful protesters shot by the National Guard. Ridiculous scenario, yet it happened.

Hey, next Tea Party protest rally, fly drones around them to provoke a reaction. Ridiculous? No, typical government over-reaction.

Whether Rand is being ridiculous or not, isn't it obvious that we are slipping into a police-state? Where do we draw the line?


just the other day he was saying it was genuis,

i guess that was before he heard what graham and mccain had to say

fucken flip floppin sheeple bitch

"He's this eccentric Ghandi-Like figure that you cant touch with the normal bribes that people respond to."
the man Doug Wead on DR. RON PAUL

Hope he or anyone he cares about is never collaterol damage.

It's so easy to dismiss when it's "over there".
Wait until it comes home and all you get is an "Oops, sorry we missed."

Dangerous games are being played.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
Ron Paul - The Revolution

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

Ok, so the NeoCon tactic

to regain the spotlight from Rand Paul will be to create a renewed push to repeal Obama Care... headed by a few select NeoCons. Namely Cruz,Rubio & Paul Ryan etc. :)

Not just a 180 on Rand Paul

I just posted to my FB page a construct of the complete 180 Charles Krauthammer has done on the issue of domestic drone usage. May of last year, he said BAN domestic drone usage. Here's the video:


So not only has he changed his tune about Rand Paul's filibuster, he just did a 180 on his view of drones in the U.S. In fact, his original stance was harsher than what Rand Paul was calling for in his filibuster!

I think you just created a new moniker

like helicopter Ben, we now have Charles 180 :)

Oh yeah, I remember that

Oh yeah, I remember that, Someone should make a video with all those video clips together.

Wow! Great find

These people have no shame, Krauthammer outed as the hypocrite he is, by his own words, priceless!

This dude

is a pure neo-con.

I love how he says war in north Africa. Ummm and how is that of concern to the American people?

"Once you become knowledgeable, you have an obligation to do something about it."- Ron Paul

Here is the script

PNAC http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_for_the_New_American_Ce...

These guys are always trolling for suckers.

Free includes debt-free!

not mocking

I heard the word clever!!!

He's a CFR member, what do

He's a CFR member, what do you expect?

a complete 180

of what he was saying the other day about Rand Paul. I guess Rupert Murdoch re wrote Krauthammer's script.

I bet you hear a similar

turnaround from Rush Limbaugh on his show today. He had the day off yesterday, probably had to be smacked back in line.

Same key word as Graham and McCain: "ridiculous"

They are all reading the same talking points memo. Hint: guys, use a thesaurus.

SO, Krauthammer, The concern over the BIll of Rights is

'absurd' and 'ridiculous'!? Apparently you are no history major! This starts us down a slippery slope to Germany under Hitler, Russia under Stalin, The Roman Empire under Nero...Is that enough examples, or shall I go find more?

But that man should play the tyrant over God, and find Him a better man than himself, is astonishing drama indeed!~~D. Sayers
Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15


When someone does a quick 180

When someone does a quick 180 degree you know they are controlled. Krauthammer just came out as a puppet. I thought Krauthammer was his own man, I guess not. Well see what he decides in the future.

Eh, not always, This time, but not always.

That is what makes this such a dicey game. The OTHER time someone does a quick 180 is when they wake up.
I have come to seek the "Mea Culpa" as evidence that someone has awakened, not merely been handed a new script. You, yourself, unless you are one of those rare birds raised in an awake household, probably had that "OMG!" moment, when you realized how much of what you believed was a lie, and you probably changed the way you lived in some meaningful way. With these shills, Rush especially, all he did was slide his chair the way the wind blew. For him to gripe about "those neocons" was just funny, and proof enough for me that he is still reading scripts.

Sure not always, I'm speaking

Sure not always, I'm speaking of Krauthammer, when was the last time Krauthammer has done a quick 180 this fast? I don't think he was reading from a script when he said Rand's filibuster was genius.

listen here count chocula

stick a spoon of your GMO infested marshmallow cereal up yours. The drone filibuster had everything to do with strikes on USA soil.

His name is Edward Snowden

What is Capitalism?


Wow, Sauerkraut is walking his support back a mile.

Israel lobby must have threatened him or something.

I support Saurkraut's

I support Saurkraut's original comment; "Rand Paul is a political genius."


f**cking idiot. "Everybody agrees". So yes then if "everybody agrees" THEN IT IS A F*CKING ISSUE TO TAKE UP ISN'T IT?

so are we keeping a moron count/tally or anything?

Moron count / tally

I think this is pretty close to what you are looking for...
