Hillary blames fake news for her loss, wants congress to ban it

“The epidemic of malicious fake news and false propaganda that flooded social media over the past year — it’s now clear the so-called fake news can have real-world consequences,” Clinton said during a speech on Capitol Hill.

Some Democrats have argued the spread of anti-Clinton fake news online contributed to her electoral loss to Donald Trump.

The issue has received renewed attention this week after a gunman entered a pizzeria in Washington that was at the center of a false viral conspiracy theory that alleged it was home to a pedophilia ring operated by Clinton and her inner circle.

“This isn’t about politics or partisanship,” Clinton continued during her speech Thursday at a ceremony honoring retiring Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).

“Lives are at risk — lives of ordinary people just trying to go about their days, to do their jobs, contribute to their communities.”

“It’s a danger that must be addressed and addressed quickly,” she said.

How about a big resounding “Fuck you” Hillary?

How about we are not taking you, congress or anyone else “Banning” anything?

How about “We have had enough?”

You didn’t get that with the Bundy ranch, the defiance of numerous state gun control laws and just our whole “Go fuck yourself” attitude as disgruntled serfs?

Fake news?

No you vicious old hag, it was you

Your type will not be abided

Not now, not ever

Go crawl under some hedges and die you bitter old bitch

 

FLASHBACK: General David Petraeus Forming Gun Control Group with Mark Kelly

General David Petraeus is forming a gun control group with Gabby Gifford’s husband Mark Kelly.

The goal of the group will be to push national adoption of the same universal background checks that have failed in California, Colorado, Washington state, and Paris. In fact, Petraeus will be pushing the same background checks that Giffords’ attacker passed in order to acquire the gun he used to wound her on January 8, 2011.

According to The Hill, Kelly announced the launch of the group by talking about military members’ commitment to “protect our constitution and homeland.” He suggested political leaders now need to step up and “do more to protect our rights and save lives.”

Kelly did not mention that more lives are lost in parts of the country where gun control is most stringent–places like Chicago–nor did he explain how passing more laws that interfere with the exercise of Second Amendment rights is somehow akin to protecting those rights.

In addition to Petraeus, former CIA director Michael Hayden and retired Admiral Thad Allen have pledged to push for more gun laws with Mark Kelly.

“I’m not going to take it anymore”

“Are we going to so blithely give up our freedom? Are we going to so blindly go along and take it?” the Kentucky Republican and presidential candidate said from the Senate floor, raising his voice to reach the approximately two dozen supporters wearing “Stand with Rand” t-shirts in the chamber gallery.

“I’m not going to take it anymore,” he added. “I don’t think the American people are going to take it anymore.”

“Sen. Rand Paul burst back into Washington on Sunday evening making clear that he is not relenting in his battle to hobble the Patriot Act.”

Give ’em hell Rand and then some

Almost makes me hopeful and want to vote again

I wonder if John “Maverick” McCain went apoplectic

Treasonous old bastard

I am not awake enough yet to commit my full thoughts on McCain to paper

Happy, happy Monday….

Rand Paul vows to force Patriot act to expire

“Rand Paul plans to force the expiration of the PATRIOT Act Sunday by refusing to allow Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to expedite debate on a key surveillance bill.

In a statement to POLITICO Saturday, Paul warned that he would not consent to any efforts to pass either an extension of current law or the USA Freedom Act, a reform bill passed overwhelmingly by the House earlier this month.

“So tomorrow, I will force the expiration of the NSA illegal spy program,” Paul said.

Because of the nature of the Senate rules, Paul can force the expiration of the PATRIOT Act, which he has vowed on the campaign trail to repeal as president because he contends it invades Americans’ privacy rights.”

I just love the names they give to these onerous laws; The Patriot act, The USA freedom act.

What more could we expect from the folks who gave us the Dept. of “Homeland” security.

Live updates from Breitbart: Rand Paul filibusters the Patriot act

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/05/20/live-updates-rand-paul-takes-control-of-senate-floor-to-filibuster-patriot-act/

Paul “calls for “rebellion” against government over this, and people should be saying “enough’s enough.”

“Where is the outrage?” Paul asked. He noted that he thinks “young people” in America tend to get it, as well. He also asked Americans if they want the government to know everything about everybody all the time.”

One of the most onerous and Un- American laws ever passed. I can’t believe the response I get from everybody when I bring it up.

“I don’t care, I’m not doing anything wrong”

Most people can’t stop texting or posting on facebook long enough to care. I guess ignorance truly is bliss.

Rand Paul threatens to filibuster Patriot act

“Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said in an interview published Monday that he will filibuster a reauthorization of provisions within the Patriot Act.

“I’m going to lead the charge in the next couple of weeks as the Patriot Act comes forward,” the GOP presidential candidate told the New Hampshire Union Leader. “We will be filibustering. We will be trying to stop it. We are not going to let them run over us. And we are going to demand amendments and we are going to make sure the American people know that some of us at least are opposed to unlawful searches.”

Where are all the liberals now that hated the Patriot act when it was signed by Bush?  You would think that they would all be lining up behind Rand on this one.

It was horrendous then and still is now, no matter which side passes it.
