Rand Paul started talking at 11:47 today about Obama & drone strikes, 9 hours later..

...and Rand Paul is still speaking.

It is on CSPAN-2

http://live.foxnews.com/#/1155606218001

Fox News has a live stream, but no other networks are even covering the issue.

This is also about a filibuster for John Brennan as CIA Director, but that is only part of what Rand is addressing. He is on record as more interested in Obama's response to this. Longest speech was apparently 15 hours, so this is not setting a record. But it should be given ample coverage by all media outlets. It is not often anyone speaks for 2 or 3 hours, much less 7 hours. He may keep going, I do not know when he will stop, but he is still going strong here now as the 7th straight hour approaches.

Apparently President Obama has (up until now) refused to admit that he does not have the power to conduct drone strikes on American citizens on American soil. You would think that our President is aware of the 5th Amendment and that he does not have such power he is hesitant to admit he does not rightfully have.

That's slightly alarming. I wonder how long Rand Paul will go.

Brennan's a shady bastard.

Obama doesn't want to refuse because he doesn't want to limit his (or Brennans possibly) options.

Rand has given other senators time to speak without giving up the floor, too.

It is a bit awkward obama doesnt just say of course we cant and wont kill american citizens on american soil. Its also a bit awkward that harry reid found reason to sulk and even leave early over such an issue.

Good for Rand. About time someone made a significant stance to feed Obama his own ****.

Why are internet kids so fed up with "drones"? Seems to be the go-to circle jerk these days.

What does it say about the state of this country when the nomination of a man who condones drone strikes on American citizens has to be filibustered rather than laughed away?

What is inherently evil about drone strikes on citizens? There are numerous situations where it would have been beneficial if our military and intelligence community had competent tools at their disposal to extinguish threats. Too many narrow minded people cling to the creepy factor of drones and it inhibits their ability to think rationally.

I can't believe he is still going. I'll be amazed if he can break the record. Sure he must be tired, and yes he has repeated himself (more than a few times by now) but this is about Rand making a point and making the media report on this to draw attention from the general public. I wish more than just Fox would cover this on the front of their webpage.

Edited to reflect he is over 9 hours now, pushing for 10.

Just when you thought we had gotten rid of George Bush for good, he comes back as a black man.

Yeah, I guess it's better to make a random account then just call people dumb and not contribute to the discussion. The internet libertarian way!

And I gave a perfectly good reason why it isn't inherently evil which you purposefully neglected to quote. Blowing up the flights on 9/11 would have been an act of good not evil. A thousand lives saved would have been amazing. herp de derp de diddly derp
