Democrats Shamefully Silent on Obama Administration’s Assertion of Right to Assassinate Americans on U.S. Soil
Rand Paul carried out a historic 13-hour filibuster
of dronemaster-in-chief John Brennan’s nomination for CIA chief.
What was most striking about this principled stand is the virtual total absence of Democrats

some of his other positions to avoid dealing with the fact that Obama is
claiming the powers of an Imperial President. I do not agree with Paul
on many things, but I commend him for this stand and condemn those who
remained silent, again, in the face of this authoritarian policy of
