President Obama’s drone policy 
is inconsisistent but mostly correct

Libertarian Rand Paul’s 13-hour filibuster of John Brennan’s nomination as CIA director, a proxy to rail against the Obama administration’s drone policy, created a remarkable…

To help Josh clear his fuzzy minded upper paragrapghs. The premise behind a drone kill has been established in every war fought. If you identify an enemy soldier, you can shoot to kill. Whether the soldier is an American citizen or not, it makes no difference if he has taken up fighting and/or abeting the enemy. From WWI, aircraft has been a vehicle platform for shooting enemies - the difference now is the pilot can be thousands of miles away. Now an enemy might be fortunate enough to be captured, wherein he/she may be held as a POW (enemy combatant) until hostilities cease; and, even be tried as a war criminal.
However, despite his political propaganda one liners, he did come to a final paragraph that showed he did realize “war is hell” and the “white gloves off” is a reality

I, along with millions of other Americans have become seriously allergic to politicians’ manipulative language. Undefined and strategically manipulative sentences and phases such as “strong national security posture is indispensable”, “the threat that terrorists pose to our nation’s interests”, “a man who was consigliore to the butchers of 9/11,” ad infinitum, have grown to be anathema. What cutesy politicians (of both parties) like Penry don’t get is that most Americans just want to hear simple, accurate and direct speech, like “1 + 1 = 2”. Not only are we not interested in the wannabe-clever talking points, we resent them and are angered by them.
What duopoly politicians, faux “conservatives” like Penry, and apparent hawks like Arrington will NEVER talk about is the provably unconstitutional and fraudulent debt-as-money, interest-bearing fiat currency neo-feudalistic global financial oligarchy served by virtually all duopoly politicians, with the notable possible exception of Ron Paul (which is why pols of Penry’s ilk always diss him with faux “reasonable” phrases such as “worldview becomes worrisome”.
The unsustainable and deliberately deceptive “national security” propaganda spawned by the Cold War, got started in earnest with the National Security Act of 1947 and the CIA Act of 1949. “National Security” (NS) is an undefined straw man.
It is not in the best interests of “national security” for Americans to be burdened with a $16Trillion+ fraudulent national debt, $150T+ in unfunded liabilities and $1.5 QUADRILLION in fraudulent derivatives. Even Rumsfeld has said there is $2.3T missing and unaccounted for at the Pentagon. Unacceptable. Also unacceptable are all the “national security” coverups such as JFK, RFK, MLK, 9-11, TWA800, OKC, Waco, Ruby Ridge, Ron Brown, Vince Foster, etc, etc, ad infinitum.
I have friends and relatives in the military and law enforcement, as millions of Americans do, so I am not interested in faux “patriotic”, ignorant, cutesy, simplistic, manipulative or downright deceptive opinions such as those expressed by Josh Penry and Bob Arrington. I want to know things like which specific individuals own the controlling stock in the New York Fed, the flag ship of America’s provably unconstitional monetary system.
The Constitution means what its simple language says. That goes for the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th and all of the rest of the Bill of Rights. “We the People” is a phrase that clearly includes the logical premise that if we can ordain and establish the Constitution, we can darn well understand exactly what it means without a bunch of politicians, lawyers, judges, and other special classes of self-anointed individuals or groups needing to explain it to us.
