Video: Rand Paul on Fox says he is ready for another filibuster on drones!

Rand Paul lays groundwork for another filibuster on drones

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul signaled Tuesday that he may be gearing up for another filibuster of an administration appointee unless he gets more answers about the government’s use of drones.

Appearing on Fox News, the Republican lawmaker said he has placed a hold on the nomination of James Comey, President Obama’s nominee for FBI director.

“A hold is like the beginning of a filibuster,” Paul told anchor Eric Bolling. “Should they bring it to the floor, and I choose to speak like I did on the drone subject earlier, than as long as I can speak I can stop the debate.”


Paul said he has placed a hold on Comey because he has asked the FBI about 15 questions on their drone policy, but hasn’t heard back yet.

“I’m trying to get a real truth,” he said. “Is the FBI using the Bill of Rights? Are they seeking a warrant from a judge before they spy on us? That to me is an important truth, and the only way I can do it is by using my leverage as a senator.”

You Go Rand, the appointee for the Secretary of Labor....

Thomas Perez, is as detrimental to the rule of law and the Bill of Rights as James Comey is, and has a more dangerous position. Please consider doing the same for him.

Egypt Cannot FEED themselves because of the 'help' and subsidy for decades. It's the dismal truth... and it's because they're a strategic pawn in an International chess game... always controlled, always on the dole.

Thank you, Sen Paul!

Stand your ground!

Well I won't back down, no I won't back down
You could stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won't back down

Gonna stand my ground, won't be turned around
And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down
Gonna stand my ground and I won't back down

Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I won't back down

Well I know what's right, I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin' me around
But I'll stand my ground and I won't back down

Stand with Rand Again!
