Eleanor Clift: Rand Paul "Trying To Stir A Revolt Against The U.S. Government" (barf alert!)

On this weekend's broadcast of The McLaughlin Group, regular liberal panelist Eleanor Clift accused Senator Rand Paul of trying to "stir a revolt against the U.S. government."

ELEANOR CLIFT: I'm with John McCain and Lindsey Graham, who basically said this was over the top and creating a sense that the government is really just waiting for this opportunity to drop a drone on you. But, I'll grant you the point. The ACLU put out a statement siding with Rand Paul and this is where the left and the right do meet.

Eleanor...he is part of the government.

He is an elected representative doing his job as such.

It would be someone who wants to prevent that, who is a traitor.

Now, I need brain bleach to cleanse that thought.

With new shipments of billions of rounds of hollow point pistol ammo and thousands of armored vehicles, me thinks that Ms. Clift has it exactly backwards. It is government who is preparing to foment a revolt against any citizen who still expects the Constitution to chain it down.

What’s that quote? Ah here it is:

“The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.” — Thomas Jefferson

That is fueling the notion of ‘us against them


How many times, in so many words, did Obama say “It’s us against them?” Maybe he didn’t use the exact phrase but he made the message quite clear!

Eleanor Clift: Rand Paul "Trying To Stir A Revolt Against The U.S. Government"

Why would Ms Clift say that? I have always seen her as liberal, but not nuts.

If Paul Rand is promoting sedition, then so has Hillary Clinton. And Rand didn't have to screech hysterically...
Remember this?

In 2003, Hillary Clinton screeched "I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you're not patriotic. We should stand up and say we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration!”

That is fueling the notion of 'us against them, it's them against this government.' I didn't hear any of this when President Bush was in the White House

So she went eight years without ears? Every thing from "selected, not elected", to "no blood for oil", to continual accusations of spying and torture, to "chimpy McBush Hitler" signs the left did nothing but fuel "us against them" during Bush's term.

Actually, Paul is trying to stir a defense against those who seek to overthrow our government.

Liberals can't see the danger because they are blinded by the liberal language of our attackers. Language can be twisted to leave a false impression...just as the issue of using drones on Americans on American soil is the tipping point for conservatives but invisible to Libs (because it goes to the very character of Obama...he is the one who gets to decide who is a terrorist and who is not. This is not a problem for Libs because they think Obama is a centrist. They do not see his dark side--they don't want to admit their own blindness).

Tidbits about Eleanor (nee Roeloff) Clift......she is 73, born in Brooklyn of German Lutheran immigrant parents.

Her first marriage was to William Clift Jr., brother of the late actor Montgomery Clift. They had three sons. The couple were later divorced.

Her second marriage was to Tom Brazaitas who was a DC writer for the Cleveland Plain Dealer newspaper. He died of kidney cancer in 2005.

Eleanor Clift has appeared in four movies....."Rising Sun" (1993), "Dave" (1993), "Independence Day" (1996) and "Getting Away With Murder" (1996). These were mostly cameo roles or small parts playing herself.

If it takes a revolt to have any chance at saving the nation then it needs to happen. Too many seem to write off these kinds of things under any circumstance while pretending to admire our founding fathers. We have to do everything we can to salvage what we can of the nation peacefully, but just like we can't do something too soon, we can't refuse to face reality if we find ourselves without other options.

Everyone should be prepared as much as they can be for any conflict, because if it does happen it will almost certainly be escalated to that level with a government attack against us. I think it's clear there are some in our government who are pushing for that. I'm sure they are looking at our law enforcement and military to get an idea of who will do what. Hopefully we have the support needed to prevent something from happening.

Of course, we love Michelle Malkin for what she thinks & says, as well for her awesome looks.

Well, I certainly hope that he riles up enough folks to effect some change. Not going to happen when we are just sitting around on our butts! Need somebody to inspire us and Rand Paul seems to be doing a nice job. If nothing else, he is riling the establishment (especially McCain and his pet). He has my support!

I’ll never forget when I was in the 8th.grade, 1970. 99.9% lilly white, middle-class New Jersey suburb. There was one Japanese-American girl, Heidko’’(Heidi’’) Yamaguchi. She was a doll! Not that all the other girls, the blondes, brunettes and red heads weren’t but Heidi was an absolute doll. Pin-straight,jet black hair so shinny you could see yourself in it. And when she smiled, man, it was like stars twinkling. I always wanted to talk to her, to say something other than an occasional ‘’hello’’ but I was just too shy. At the end of the school year she moved away. Broke my heart.
