Rand Paul's Stance On Drones
Sen. Rand Paul joined Sean in the show's final hour and explained hasn't changed his position against domestic drones, but admitted that a recent interview he gave "left the mistaken impression" he had done an about face. "My comments last night left the mistaken impression that my position on drones had changed. Let me be clear: it has not. Armed drones should not be used in normal crime situations. They may only be considered in extraordinary, lethal situations where there is an ongoing, imminent threat. I described that scenario previously during my Senate filibuster," said Paul.

Benghazi Report Revealed
A new congressional report has been released, giving us more details on the terrorist attack in Benghazi which led to the death of four brave Americans. All-in-all, it doesn't look good for Secretary Clinton or the Obama administration. The report confirms, "The U.S. government immediately had information that the attacks were conducted by al Qaeda-affiliated terrorists, yet Administration officials downplayed those connections, and focused on the idea that provocation for violence resulted from a YouTube video." During a hearing in the House Foreign Affairs Committee on January 23, 2013, Hillary Clinton stated that she was personally unaware of requests for extra security in Benghazi.

Outrageous Statement: Harry Reid
In a debate over sequestration cuts on the Senate floor yesterday, Democrat Harry Reid felt the need to blame the tea party. He actually compared the tea party to anarchists, saying that they were different in that they are not violent but they don't believe in government at any level. Harry Reid notes that the tea party doesn't say it is against government, but then he goes on to say that this is basically what it amounts to. But that's not all! Harry Reid then went on to say the following: "They're not doing physically destructive things to buildings and people, directly, but they are doing everything they can to throw a monkey-wrench into every form of government ... that's what it's all about." Reid continues, "Government is not inherently bad; Government is inherently good. That's why we have a Constitution and that's what we direct the activities of this government based upon." Government is inherently good? Tea partiers are like anarchists, they don't believe in government? While tea partiers don't do physical destruction "directly," they are trying to destroy our government and its proper process? This is the level of rhetoric we are getting from Democrats nowadays.
