Sen. Rand Paul talks immigration, drones

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Senator Rand Paul joined the radio program this morning to discuss immigration reform and his recent statements regarding drones. While Glenn and the senator are like-minded, and Sen. Paul is one of the few congressman Glenn holds high regard for, they don’t agree on everything.

Glenn took issue with comments Senator Paul made following the Boston bombings regarding drones. While Rand says everything he said aligns with what he said during his infamous filibuster on drones, Glenn couldn’t get on board.

“What I was trying to say is, and interestingly I used this hypothetical in my filibuster, if you look at the filibuster I use the exact same working and the exact same analogy 3 or 4 times,” Sen. Paul noted. “What I was trying to describe was a gun fight where someone is coming out of liquor store and shooting at policemen. Most of us acknowledge that police have the right to shoot back and to use deadly force on criminals who are using deadly force against them or hostages, customers, etc.

The point I was trying to make was, instead of the policemen getting out of his car, was pushes a button and some kind of robotic firing arm is able to engage in the firefight instead of the policeman. That’s what I’m imagining.”

Glenn wasn’t convinced.

“You may in the end be right but I am against it because I don’t want to give the government any more power,” Glenn said.

They did both agree that Tsaernav should have had his Miranda Rights read to him and not have been considered an enemy combatant at any point.

While Glenn and Rand may not find common ground at this point on that issue, however, when it comes to immigration reform, the two men are on the same page. The answers are found in making the student visa program and the border is more secure, while making it easier for good, hardworking people to immigrate to the United States.

    Rand Paul is delusional if he really believes that any enforcement actions will actually be enforced. They have never enforced any of the existing laws in the past 20 years so why now? Rand Paul is what Stalin and Lenin often referred to as a “useful idiot” on this issue, the left will NEVER enforce any laws which restrict the flow of illegal aliens and future democrat voters. We don’t need new laws, we need to enforce the existing laws.

    Would the govt allow the private citizens, who are supposed to be in control of things, to fly armed drones over DC?

  • landofaahs

    I generally support Rand but I drink nobody’s Kool-Ade.

    They say that if someone is “suspected” of doing illegal activity, then drones might be used… and if they are “convicted” of doing illegal activity, then drones Will Be Used… (the term “convicted” as it pertains to this post is from the Gov’ts Own Words, Reviewed by an Informed High Level Person Working For The Federal Government).

    If American Citizens Droned Corrupt Politicians They Would Be Deemed Domestic Terrorist, and in Our Terminology, “convicted” would mean lots of Public Information Showing That They Have Commited Treason and/or High Treason and approved by at least a Grand Jury…

  • landofaahs

    All laws should pertain to bureaucrats and politicians alike. If they can’t live by the law, why should we?

    I think Senator Rand Paul is fast becoming a RINO. The borders should be secured and their should be no amnesty at all. They come up with a amnesty program every time we get over run with ten million illegals. Their should be no compromise. That is part of the problem with this country, the communist element have been pushing  compromising down our throat for years, till now we are but a few more month’s and the government will be completely converted to communist control under our present president.
    We should not be taxed to give foreign aid or stupid projects nor supporting illegal’s.

    Sounds like a combo of Robo Cop and Judge Dread. No thanks. Here’s an idea, how about we use The Constitution of The United States for our  base of law?

    Hey, their ideas of bring other terrorists groups into America to do their job is being detected and brought to light – so how about drones.  Watching our own then all we have to do is decide who is good and who is not, heck, get rid of the good and bad then it will all be legal.  There, the government will take care of killing us one at a time.  Stand by, and we’ll have to wait to see who will be first after that and if they get away with it – game on!!!

    There is a big difference between a foreign immigrant and an illegal alien.Or as Obama like to call illegals— future Democratic voters. Immigrants from all over the world have come here legally to obtain American citizenship. Illegal aliens cross our border illegally and break our laws. They cost American tax payers billions of dollars every year. By giving amnesty or anything like it to illegal aliens is a slap in the face to all those that came here legally and became citizens,paid taxes and raised their children to be loyal Americans— first. We don’t need immigration reform, we need illegal alien reform and enforce the laws we already have . It doesn’t make any difference if it’s Republican or Democrat they have both failed to protect our borders. If they can’t keep the illegals out of the country and they certainly can’t keep the drugs from crossing our borders how can they keep the terrorists out? Answer–they can’t. Give me a break—- using words like “good”,”hard working” to describe illegal aliens. They are here illegally —in most cases( more than half) they work for cash–no taxes and send millions of dollars home to Mexico, they get government money and assistance for their kids in public schools, medical assistance for free, free housing and several safe cities won’t even admit they are living in their city. I guess that good hard working definition also applies to the hundreds of illegals in our prisons and jails who cost us millons of dollars to keep them in jail. Boy that’s exactly what I want– for my city and neigborhood to resemble— Nuevo Laredo, Tijuana and all those Mexican border towns that have drug cartels,slums,ghettos,barrios,disease, graft, corruption and killings. Just a piece of Old Mexico to call home is all the illegals want. Because they refuse to put Mexico second and America first. America is their meal ticket to the Mexican dream not the American dream.They are trying to recreate Mexico here and render us truly a third world country just like Mexico.
    The drone thing reminds me of “SKY NET” Hello Arnold! Once Big Brother sells everyone the idea it is for our safety and they can better protect us with more security, more cameras more government invasion of our privacy then we will be SOL. With 51 % of the American voters already agreeing with Obama and his policies we are already a breath away from total goverment control.
    Tsaernav should have been eliminated. Whatever so called intelligence he is suppose to give the Feds isn’t worth  the circus that is comming with a trial and media coverage. His family needs to be deported back to where ever as a threat to this country. Or hold them indefinetly at  Guantanamo.We should send a message that anyone who attacks us will be killed not placed on trail and their families will be deported or held as a threat to the safety of our country. A civil trial is the only way to go with Tsernav and he should get the death penalty. And not 10 years down the line. If they want to die for their cause we should do everything we can to assist them.
    LOCK and LOAD People!

    sound scared!    think clean water, grow your own food, small community, harnass local energy supplies(wind, wave, sun, etc.)  Then teach others, and defend with arms against thiefs.  Then you don’t need your elephants or donkeys making decisions for you.  You only need your brain and small community, the EARTH has provided the rest.

    Glenn Beck hates drones against Americans until Glenn Beck loves drones killing Americans that he thinks should die. Yep, that’s Mr. Values and Principles…until  it’s more important to throw red meat to the dogs.

    Beck is your Messiah?  

  • Anonymous

    WOW! That is SUCH an original thought.  Do you always spew Beck’s ignorant nonsense?

    I mocked Beck’s dumb assertion elsewhere, but I’ll recap. The government as all the power. That is how the framers set up the Constitution. Politicians have the power. Citizens have rights.

    The government has hydrogen bombs. Lots of them. You nor Beck can give the government what they already have. The statement makes no sense, like a lot of what comes out of Beck’s mouth.

    Care to reword your “thought” in a way that doesn’t sound like you’re a puppet and Beck has his hand up your backside?

    It’s not proof, Sam, if you refuse to accept facts. Beck was rightfully opposed to killing al Awaki without due process, until he was killed. Then?  Principles?  What principles?

  • http://youtu.be/0iRCvDwF26Q Sam Fisher

    I find it moronic that the liberal does not understand that Glenn Beck is human and there for can change his mind on things. Dude it was a year old story you bring up. So I guess using your logic Obama is against gay marriage that is so homophobe of your god. Or better yet Arana Huffington must be still on the right because no one can change their mind on things. I guess Democrats still support the KKK because people can never change their minds. You see how moronic your argument is or do you need me to write it in crayon so your two year old brain can comprehend logic. He even said for the past year he has been changing his mind on a lot of things but let’s ignore facts and bring out something he said a year ago without taking into an account he changed his mind on the subject completely. Your god Obama did the same thing on same sex marriage I guess that makes Obama a hypocrite as well what it is your logic. God you liberals are really stupid. How in the hell did you pass preschool moron? Look at me I am Victor Tiffany I bring up crap that Beck changed his mind on just so I can call him a liar and look like an uninformed ass all at the same time. your IQ must be -50,000,000,000,000 to be this stupid.
