As Hillary Clinton starts to ponder the curtains she wants to hang in the Oval Office, there is only one person who can realistically stand in her way: Rand Paul.
Readers of this site will be well aware that I spend very little time focusing on Presidential politics. There are many reasons for this, but more than anything else, I believe there are two key components to genuine cultural change, and none of them have to do with electing a savior. These are:
Rader, a 17-year-old senior at PHS, said that after the officer claimed that he had pushed him Rader denied touching the officer. That’s when the ski-masked man shoved him backward into a walkway.
We can then see on the video that the officer sprayed the completely non-violent teen right in the eyes with pepper spray.

Sen. Coburn: “you could see instances of anarchy.. You could see violence”; Armed Patriots Headed to White House to Arrest Obama
PoliticsUSBy: Joshua Cook Nov 20, 2014
U.S. Tom Coburn told USA Today that if President Obama violates the U.S. Constitution and grants amnesty to illegal aliens, the reaction to his executive order may turn violent.
Salon: Your appearance on Bill Maher’s show last week suggests you intend to court liberals and independents if you run for president. How can a proud member of the Tea Party really achieve this?
Rand Paul: You know, I think there is a great deal of possibility for any candidate who can get out of either party, that doesn’t neatly fit in either party’s mold. So I think if you had a Democrat unusual enough to get through the primary system but to appeal to people outside of the Democrat mold, they could do well. Same goes for a Republican. And I’ll often tell people that a plurality of Americans now no longer consider themselves either Republicans or Democrats, so if you’re a Republican and wanted to get Bill Maher’s vote, it’s probably a difficult sell, but the fact that he’s open and willing because he’s frustrated with both sides, I think is emblematic of a lot of people, particularly young people. I don’t think they’re wedded to one party or the other, and so I think the biggest obstacle to somebody coming out that could attract people from the middle is getting through the primary system, because you’ve got to get through a primary system that, on both sides, you know, sort of demands ideological purity, and then if someone is outside of those bounds, it’s more difficult to get through the primary system.
In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, I am joined by the great antiwar radio host, Scott Horton of the Scott Horton Show! Scott and I discuss anything and everything you could ever hope to know about the latest foreign menace in the news, those rascals known as Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Towards the end of the discussion, Scott comments on how the Republican takeover of Congress will impact United States foreign policy, whether we’ll see combat troops in Iraq, and has some interesting remarks about Senator Rand Paul which his fans and critics alike will undoubtedly find interesting.
Anybody else remember when we "won" the cold war?
Why a star football player traded NFL career for a tractor
Steve Hartman, CBS NEWS, November 14, 2014
LOUISBURG, N.C. - At one point number 60, Jason Brown, was one of the best centers in the NFL. At one point he had a five-year, $37 million contract with the St. Louis Rams. And at one point he decided it was all meaningless - and just walked away from football.
"My agent told me, 'You're making the biggest mistake of your life,'" said Brown. "And I looked right back at him and I said, 'No I'm not. No I'm not.'"
So what could possibly trump the NFL?
You wouldn't believe. Jason Brown quit football to be a plain, old farmer -- even though he'd never farmed a day a in his life. Asked how he learned to even know what to do, Brown said:
"Get on the Internet. Watch Youtube videos."
Details aside, I got a prescription today for a "controlled substance".
Note, the substance isn't being controlled; TwelveOhOne is.
As I handed the paperwork over (this is something they can't do electronically as it's "too dangerous", but it's just heroin-derived), the lady asked, "Can I see your license?"
That specific wording stuck with me.
It wasn't, "Can I see your driver's license?"
It was, "Papers please."
If Obama uses this felonious "Executive Order" to implement his own Immigration Order, that will be the most in your face thing he's done yet. This would be grounds for IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT.
And, I would expect nothing less from the Congress & Senate to do so. And at the least they should pulverize it with a counter-bill to nullify it.
"John Harwood of CNBC and the New York Times reports that President Obama's executive amnesty order is coming Friday in Las Vegas."
This is the most egregious act he has done to date, and the most in-your-face. The Executive Branch CANNOT MAKE LAWS!
These grandmas getting high is classic. Not only are they hilarious, but they demonstrate the harmless effects of marijuana. In my opinion they do a pretty good job representing the true nature of it and how easily it could fit into society.
What is an evaluation?
Guess What? Rand Paul was CORRECT to vote AGAINST the USA 'Freedom' Act, crafted by the Same Author of the USA 'Patriot' Act!Submitted by AnCapMercenary on Wed, 11/19/2014 - 18:32
Guess What? It's a TRAP!!
Have y'all read the bill, as proposed??
Like the 'Patriot' Act, just because they advertise it to be X, Y, Z, don't mean scheisse. It's not a reform, when it's a 'reform.'
In case it wasn't clear how legalese is applied in reality is NEVER how it's advertised: 'not citing' name & number, while NOT STOP COLLECTING CONTENT of the communication, does not constitute cessation of collection of meta-data, as advertised & claimed, in govt terrorist-speak.
The dust has barely settled on the latest high profile banker suicide in which Deutsche Bank's associate general counsel, and former SEC regulator, Charlie Gambino was found dead, having hung himself by the neck from a stairway banister, and here comes the latest sad entrant in the dead banker chronicles of 2014 when earlier today, the Post reports, a Citigroup banker was found dead with his throat slashed in the bathtub "of his swanky downtown apartment, authorities said Wednesday."
