Thanks for the compliment, but I didn't get it from beck
"Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society."
Where ever you got it you pulled it out of context and totally ignored the part where Holdren rejected compulsory methods of population control. The citation provided by Real Dave proved that but like most right wing whack jobs reading comprehension isn't your strong suit.

For example:
Boy-scout club minding their own business until Liberals desired to rape the kids by allowing them in their camps!
Parents said "No gays or lesbians around my kids" but Liberals do not care about the kids or parents they just want to show control and power and rape the kids in the process!!!
Who's next?
Liberals really do NOT care about the kid's safety or well being. They just want control via an all powerful government!!!
Remember Hitler killed all the Communists!!!
Liberalism ALWAYS destroys itself and others !
So, allowing women to be den mothers to cub scouts means these poor children are being molested by these cougars.

When a Liberal does not like something he or she will file a lawsuit, boycott it and require the government to make a law against it!!!
For example, Conservatives did not like Air America Liberal radio and JUST did not listen to it!!!
It imploded as liberalism always do!!!
Liberals do not like smart, 99.6% right, Rush Limbaugh and want to destroy him with "Fairness Doctrine", because when America does not want to hear Liberal crap, Liberals MUST force it to the people!!!
I wonder why Rush Limbaugh has 20 million listeners?
Liberals hate that number, ha ha!!!
So you claim that conservatives that don't use marijuana, morning after pills and pornography are fine with these things being available to everyone else? You probably heard this BS from your drug addict idol Limbaugh.

You're the idiot, fringe zombie. You're even further left than the ACLU. Didn't you get the memo, libtard?
"On October 19, 2011, the ACLU submitted a Freedom of Information Act request seeking information about the targeted killings of three U.S. citizens in Yemen: Anwar al-Awlaki; his 16-year-old son, Abdulrahman al-Awlaki; and Samir Khan."

Idiots like you made a big deal out of waterboardng, but killing American citizens ..
A N D -
--> their 16 year old kids <--
you defend.
- Bush questionbly stetches the law by pouring water on "known terrorists" face "to get information to save life" = Democrats in an uproar and politisizng the war.
- Obama absolutely stetches the law by becoming judge, jury and EXECUTIONER, also kills 16 year old boy and another guy = Democrats defending Obama the clown.
You are a POS, idiot.
Okay, let's go over the salient facts one more time.
Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan were engaged in hostile acts against the United States aiding and abetting Al Qaeda and actively recruiting terrorists. In taking these actions they essentially renounced their citizenship.
Capturing them and bringing them to trial was not a viable option due to where they ensconced themselves.
Allowing them to continue these hostile actions was also not a viable option.
Awlaki's son was travelling with a group of Al Qaeda operatives when he was killed and there's no evidence that he was intentionally targeted . When you travel with a bad crowd sometimes bad things happen to you.
There's never been any evidence that water boarding ever produced useful intelligence. But more importantly you're creating a false equivalency between someone already in custody and no longer a danger and someone actively avoiding capture and still a menace. A police officer can and in fact has the duty to use deadly force against a suspect resisting arrest and deemed to be a danger to the public. Once a suspect is in custody the rules change and the individual has certain rights under the Constitution.

John Brennan and the Drone Consensus

In the run-up to yesterday’s Senate confirmation hearings for would-be CIA director John Brennan, everyone was waiting for an epic clash over the morality of drones. Brennan, having spent the past four years as Obama’s chief counterterrorism adviser, has been at the center of the administration’s targeted killing program—which seemed to make his nomination the perfect moment for a showdown between Congress and the White House on the subject. The potential for drama was only heightened with the recent leak of a white paper outlining the Obama administration’s legal rationale for targeting American citizens.

And the hearing did get off to an unruly start. Code Pink protesters repeatedly disrupted the proceedings until they were ejected from the room. One woman held up a placard that read “drones fly, children die,” while others called Brennan an “assassin.” There were also plenty of heated exchanges between Brennan and the senators: Democrats bored into him over the drone program’s lack of transparency, and Republicans hammered him with questions about classified leaks and his alleged involvement in the Bush administration’s harsh interrogation program.

Yet despite the testy exchanges and the theatrical protests, it’s worth noting that not a single senator said he or she opposed targeted killings. It was perhaps a recognition that drones are here to stay—a permanent part of America’s hi-tech 21st-century arsenal. Indeed, instead of a dramatic moral showdown, the hearing showcased evidence that Congress and the Obama administration could be moving toward pragmatic compromises which would impose more accountability on, but not eliminate, the drone program.

Fox News' Gretchen Carlson seemed confused on Thursday as to why people are talking so much about the Obama administration's drone policies.

The drone program has dominated political conversation since NBC News released a Justice Department paper which said that the government has the right to kill American citizens even if they are not actively plotting attacks against the United States. The memo's release came just as John Brennan, the administration's nominee for CIA chief, is set to face questions about his role in crafting the drone policy.

But Carlson questioned what the big deal was on Thursday's "Fox and Friends."

"I'm just wondering why this is suddenly becoming a topic of discussion!" she said. "They killed [American citizen Anwar] al-Awlaki, what, two years from now?... I don't remember lawmakers making a humungous stink about this. Some libertarians did. President Obama's fighting the war on terror! Are you against killing terrorists?"

A couple of minutes later, Carlson again tried to figure out what all the fuss was about, apart from people who saw hypocrisy in Obama's embrace of drones and criticism of Bush-era terrorism policies.

"I guess I'm just trying to figure out the exact criticism other than the hypocrisy," she said. "Do we really have criticism about the president taking out members of al-Qaeda?"

After another exchange, she was back. "Are the Democrats upset because innocent civilians are being killed in these drone strikes, or are they upset because the alleged terrorists are being killed?"

Due process, just due process for Americans," co-host Steve Doocy said.

"I don't agree with that," Carlson said.

Mr. President, I haven’t agreed with all of your decisions but of course I haven’t agreed with all of your predecessors decisions. I think you’ve done a hell of a job with what you have been dealt and how you have managed it. I shed a tear the night you were initially elected President in 2008. I never thought that day would occur. A black man elected president in the U.S. in my lifetime.

Do you think they can find another non threatning blackish man to run for president next time? Who are the black/latinos going to vote for in a typical white election? Let me guess lowest voter turn out in years lol. Its just about race for your people and that makes you a racist. I know plenty of white people who voted for obama due to his policy and plans. You ask average black person that voted for obama about his policy and they like huh ???? What you talk about??? Are they going to be disenfranchised next time when theres no black guy to vote for?
