Terrific!
Senator Rand Paul thumped Secretary of State nominee John Kerry today at his hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee today. Right out of the blocks, Senator Paul stumped Genghis John with a question on the War Powers Clause of the US Constitution,

“I believe in candidate Barack Obama who said in 2007 that the president doesn’t have the power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack. I’d like to know if you agree with me candidate Barack Obama or if you agree with President Barack Obama who took us to war in Libya without Congressional authority unilaterally?”

Rand Paul then went to bust Kerry for double-standard on Libya and Cambodia.

Paul was ready for the hearing unlike most of the other senators with the exception of Senator Marco Rubio.

  1. Rand Paul has been very impressive since he came into the senate. I do like what he is doing lately. The libs hate him which is a great thing.

  2. Rand didnt “stump” anyone. Here’s Kerry’s reply: “You can be ‘absolutist’ and apply it to every circumstance, the problem is, it just doesn’t work in some instances,” Kerry said, adding that as a senator, he supported unilateral action taken by President Ronald Reagan in Grenada, President George H.W. Bush in Panama and President Bill Clinton in Bosnia.

    “When 10,000 people are about to be wiped out by a brutal dictator and you need to make a quick judgment about engagement, you certainly can’t rely on a Congress that has proven itself unwilling to move after weeks and months sometimes,” Kerry said.

  3. Nothing to see here..the mooslime POS will find some way to get ketchup boy in office….

  4. None of this Kabuki Theater will matter. If Rand Paul doesn’t have the guts to ask John Kerry about his dishonorable discharge from the US Military for secretly meeting with the VietCong during the Vietnamese War (while in uniform!) then I don’t want to have anything to do Rand Paul!

  5. Rand Paul is also a Doctor. You have to be precise and accurate, which it seems many in Washington get a failing grade.

    It seems Paul was ready yesterday, also. What is striking is “no fear” attitude and this is what we need in a President, a real shame Obama and other Republicans and Democrats don’t share Paul’s intelligence and honesty.

  6. Go Rand– Hope other GOP senators ask pertinent questions. If the last sentence of Kerry’s reply as noted above is correct, that is really scary. He’s saying an imperial President can commit us to war regardless of Congress and the constitution. Sounds familiar.

  7. Kerry said this –

    that he will do his best to implement “President Obama’s vision for the world” by giving “a voice to the voiceless.”

    That’s what were all afraid of, Lurch.

    Seems the voiceless have been alleviated over the voiced.

    Voiceless = future Democrat voters and likely communists.

  8. You are shameless Jim Hoft. Shamless. You post all these articles supporting Republicans/conservatives, but you include every damn leftist ad that agrees to pay you money, and those ads are buried within each article. Where in the hell do any Republicans/conservatives draw the line? It is reprehensible that any site calling themselves right leaning to agree to take money from the Democrats to run there sorry sick azzed ads.

  9. @ Buzzy – shut your filthy pie hole. Don’t like it here, shove off, dolt.

  10. Hahaha buzzy, you figured it out. Its not about the message, its about the money. Why else would someone sit on their fat @ss all day, ever day regurgitating pabulum for insurrectionist wanna-be’s? There’s a market out there to pander to malcontents, paranoids and conspiratorial nuts and GP is tapping it. Cha-Ching! let those cash registers ring!

    BOTH USE MILITARY AND WAR FOR THEIR POLITICAL CAREERS

  16. Kerry is dangerous. always was. He said Pakistani roads helped us get Bin Laden? Hmmmmm…. i guess that might be so if the helicopters we used in the raid were launched from inside pakistan or after they got him, got him out via the helicopters returning to roads in paksitan.

    jb commented:

    sounds like insulting the seals or you didn’t build that attitude. Kerry is another Obama and in many ways worse.

    He is also the richest senator. Hope Obama takes 2/3rds of his income.
