One thing about it. The Neocons have gotten away with lies

One thing about it. The Neocons have gotten away with lies for years if not decades with the help of the media.

They can't run from honest people that care about their country when we have a chance to speak to each other and share information. Youtube is the current vehicle, they can't run away from, but the internet is free market.

And the internet was built to 'protect the state', but it seems to work both ways.

Senator Rand Paul removed

Senator Rand Paul removed unimaginable power from the presidency and congress with his filibusterer. A stroke of genius not fully articulated yet.

I bet his neocon buddies came

I bet his neocon buddies came unglued over his statement about it being "political genius", so the "Kraut" hammer (as a constant warmonger he might be reminiscing about "killin' Krauts" [Germans] in WWII) had to make up for it this way.

I should have figured it was too good to be true that the sour Kraut would say anything positive about opposing tyranny.

Then what is the purpose for a drone program

"There is no conceivable reason the President would use a drone in the United States"

Then what is the purpose for a drone program in the United States?

Exactly. He's so full of mud.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

How to spot a liar.

Catch the smirk of contempt.

Spot the duper's grin.

He also employs hypnotic techniques and tricky language.

That's why I never, ever watch him. He has nothing to say I need to hear.

Free includes debt-free!

Krauthammer says:

"There is no conceivable reason the President would use a drone in the United States"

Complete lie. And no logic to back up his statement.

"This issue is the most ridiculous and absurd"

Why? No reason given. He assumes the viewer will just accept it.

There is no logic or reason to his arguments at all. Break down everything he says, point by point.

I hope you will understand what I mean.

Empirical statements without logic or reason using only word play to make them sound like facts = propaganda.

I hated actually having to listen to the snake in order to refute his arguments....yuck!

That level of intergirty is really impressive.

See? It is people like him that make me say "He FOES look a bit like a reptile..." lol!
To be honest, I feel a little better about Rand now...

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Yeah I always expect him to

Yeah I always expect him to stick out his long serpent tongue to catch flies or something.

Maybe David Icke is right about the reptilian thing?

michelle malkin

is one too.

You know, you're right!

You know, you're right! Freaky gal.

Krauthammer Is Now Telling Us What To Believe About Drone

strikes...

Krauthammer went from praising Rand Paul's Filibuster, calling it Political Genius, to doing an about face and mocking Rand as if he were some kind of nut job.

Same ole Krauthammer, the useful idiot who will do as he is told by Roger Ailes / Rupert Murdock. Rand Paul is gaining national attention which he richly deserves. He is gaining the trust and respect of the American people.

Fox News or Fix News: "All the news that needs to be fixed"

Rand Paul will never be allowed to be the "Front Runner" by those that control Fix News Network..and for that matter the American press.

Maybe Rand needs to filibuster once a month. Rand gaining national attention by what he did. It's so very hard for the establishment to counter with lies because the people can see for themselves on TV who the real champion of liberty is..

Charles Krauthammer

Does as he is told by Bill Kristol, Shel Adelson, Likud and Neo-Cons.

Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdock are only puppets; frontmen.

Krauthammer - 'A Stroke of Political Genius'

Here we go...

Charles Krauthammer on Rand Paul's Filibuster: 'A Stroke of Political Genius'

OK, folks need to watch that again.

He was doing political analysis, not supporting anything Rand said.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

he was full of praise for him

originally. he obviously got a memo with new talking points.

Is there a video?

I thought I remembered that Krauthammer endorsed what Rand did. Now he's saying it's ridiculous? It's crazy how controlled the media is. Very 1984-like.

It would be great to show both videos (with air dates) side by side.

yep here you go

http://youtu.be/tWDhvE6gV-k (just Krauthammer)

http://youtu.be/Xw2QRA3n-uE ( Krauthammer plus panel)

tbf I don't think Krauthammer was mocking Rand as such. He was belittling the idea that drone strikes in the USA were possible though.

Hmm

----------------------------------------------------
Krauthammer's words:

"Stroke of political genius. He will be remembered. This raises his image and he's completely sincere about this. This will be a moment that people will say launched him as a national figure"
----------------------------------------------------

It's Krauthammer might have an "out" here. He can just say "Yes, it was a stroke of political genius but just because it raised his image as a political figure, it was over a silly issue".

Don't get me wrong by the way. I love that Rand did this and I'm absolutely no fan of Krauthammer (who is as establishment as it gets). I'm just saying he can make an argument that he's not doing a 180 on this.

Good point.

Good point.

I'll see if I can find that

I'll see if I can find that video.
