Rand Pauls political action committee just announced that the Kentucky senator is suing President Obama.
Paul will file his lawsuit on Wednesday morning at the U.S. District Court in D.C., joined by former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and FreedomWorks president Matt Kibbe.
The class-action lawsuit will be filed against Obama, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, Director of the National Security Agency Keith Alexander and FBI Director James Comey.
The complaint? I am filing a lawsuit against President Barack Obama because he has publicly refused to stop a clear and continuing violation of the 4th Amendment, Paul said in a statement. The Bill of Rights protects all citizens from general warrants. I expect this case to go all the way to the Supreme Court and I predict the American people will win.
Cuccinelli, acting as lead counsel, said hes excited about the opportunity to get the courts to affirm the rights protected by the 4th Amendment to the Constitution.
We have assembled a legal team and we expect to be opposed by the vast resources of the federal government, yet I am optimistic that we will prevail, because we are seeking to protect a cornerstone of the Constitution, added Cuccinelli, who was defeated in the Virginia governors race last fall by Terry McAuliffe.
This class action suit isnt about Republican versus Democrat, or progressive versus conservative. This is about defending the basic civil liberties of every American from a government that has crossed the line. FreedomWorks is participating in this suit on behalf of our community of 6 million citizens nationwide, along with any American who has a phone, Kibbe said. If you use a phone, you should care about this case. Never in American history has there been such a warrantless gathering of citizens information. We believe it is time to put this before the courts.
Paul, Cuccinelli and Kibbe are expected to discuss their case in greater detail on the steps of the courthouse tomorrow after filing the lawsuit.
Why Putin would be a better President than Obama -
Putin is against same sex marriage
Putin is for organized religion
Putin is against gays
Putin is for strong boarder security
Putin is against muslims
Putin is building up his military
Putin is not gay
Putin is feared by his opponents
How Putin and Obama are alike -
They are marxist, socialist and they hate America.
FReepmail me to subscribe to or unsubscribe from the SCOTUS ping list.
The first order of business after the next congress is sworn in should be impeachment of obama.
I like Putin better than obozo too.
Dismissed. No standing. /s
In other words, Russia has a better Marxist socialist than we do...
No doubt you're right.
It's a shame a case of this seriousness can't be expedited, does anyone know if it can be?
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us...
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
that was the order months ago when the bastard won an illegitimate election because he is a LIAR and lied about Benghazi and obamacare to get elected. His election was based on lies. It is illegitimate But we have gutless flaccid back stabbing republocrats that allow puking on the constitution and do nothing!! They will do nothing in the future. Hillary is in like flynn.You don’t think we are going to support these fraudulent “conservatives” like bush lite or Romney again — do you. NO!!!
They also have a 13% flat tax, a net positive native population growth and are undergoing a Christian revival, so I guess its a matter of some interpretation how "Marxist" the Russian system is.
Saw the sarc tag, Jim. :)
heck, I guess any lawful citizen with a phone has standing.
I like the fact that Ken Cuccinelli is lead counsel.
Putin’s not a Socialist.
He’s the world’s most successful Fascist.
Socialism would mean he has to share some stuff with the little people.
He doesn’t do that. You’re either in the gang...or not.
In which case, you might want to consider leaving. He’s happy to let you go, something that the Communists weren’t so happy to do.
It's a win, win.
I can't wait till the gutsy Rand, his co-plaintiffs and his attorneys release the details.
I'm sure they've taken steps to negate the "no-standing" crappola....and are on solid ground vis a vis this aspect of any suit.
Good point about any lawful citizen with a phone having standing and I’d guess Paul and Cuccinelli have that in their minds as well as many other reasons.
Between the two of them I seriously they’re going off half cocked on this, neither are dummies.
I seriously don’t think...
I trust you can assign the epithets properly.
BRIEF FOR AMICI CURIAE SENATOR JOHN CORNYN, SENATOR TED
CRUZ, SENATOR ORRIN HATCH, SENATOR MIKE LEE, SENATOR ROB
PORTMAN, SENATOR MARCO RUBIO
Putin is not a marxist socialist, he’s more dictator capitalist
Agreed, these guys are sharp and high profile. They get air time and news coverage, especially Paul. The media will be hard pressed to bury this story once it gets going, IMO.
BTW, how did you know my screen is hard of hearing? ; )
LOL! I’m half deaf so I yell alot so I’ll know I’m talking! B^)

It is more Czarist than Marxist at this point...
Which means it is better than the former USSR... but that is about it... Sadly it may get better there than here...
Sorry, boarder = border
If I had to choose between Obama and Putin for President, I would vote for Putin.
I second that motion to the nth degree (Xn).
Standing may actually be a good point. Usually you have to show harm done to your own person to be heard.
I suppose, but you have to prove personal harm, so hopefully they have that.
There’s a lot to like about Rand. He comes across more level-headed than his dad, who was actually a very smart guy and understood the dynamics and benefits of the free market like few others. But in a national forum, Ron Paul would just zing off into never-never land. I hope Rand has a more sensible foreign policy approach than his dad, becasue Rand’s domestic view is spot on IMO.
With Ken Cuccinelli as lead counsel, the standing and personal harm elements are locked down, or he wouldn’t be involved. IMO.
Well described, PGalt.
RP is the new Larry Klayman. Worthless.
Thus the declaration of a class-action. We’ll see.
...Anything to stop this SOB in his tracks. His arrogance is only outdone by his narcissism. (I know...they both mean the same thing...which means there is no end to Obama’s tyrannical actions.) Paul along with a few others, Cruz, etc.... they can take this guy on and win. But Obama has powerful allies and so this needs to be done right.
Listening to Rush today [Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014] I hear him shadowing what I have been saying for a few years: we are seeing STALINISM instituted in order to terminate our Constitutional Republic.
Rush has not really touched on the latest crushing of the Constitution: the executive passing his own law penalizing any company that cuts employees in the wake of Obama Care in order to remain in business. How can one be penalized for violating a law that has not been legally passed? Well, we will see.
Senator Paul is filing his suit in the DC Fed Court - the very court that Harry Reid has made possible for the WH to stack in its favor.
Now, in light of all that I am implying here, I say again [What Rush said today]: What will make Ob@ma leave office in January of 2017? And, even if Hildebeest does win an election, Ob@ma may rule as Putin did in Russia recently - by proxy.
The point of all this is: Who is opposing this power grab in violation of the Constitution? AND - Who trusts the Federal Courts & the SCOTUS to protect the Constitution? Who believes in John Roberts any longer?
We need to do like they did in Egypt last year: take to the streets in the tens of millions! Stop the country from functioning until Constitutional freedom is restored. Ha! There are not that many Americans willing to make the effort! How odd that Egypt has to teach the United States how to preserve some semblance of freedom.
