-- games where we are clearly not buying their love so maybe it's time to stop putting a deposit down on their eight.
While -- burning our flag senator Rand Paul says America continues to burn billions giving them aid.
And the Republican from Kentucky says it's time to pull that plug now thank -- joining us senator tells.
So no waited all I had ten -- you boy I get -- -- all that's going on we don't know who we're giving money to just cut off a completely -- Well the law says that when there's a military to the age should end so the first thing that is a -- the law you know the president.
Seems to think he's above the law he can do whatever he wants.
But you know we pass laws and so this -- it's pretty important that we Obey the law that the president should Obey the law yet he had the age should finish but he isn't -- -- military community.
That -- is the only first in the country he doesn't think it's a military if it's really even beyond debating it such a ridiculous notion.
That you could say -- the military evicted Morrissey but that's not active.
In fact the statute goes one step farther -- the statute says either a military two or anything substantially affected by the military.
The age it and they should I can return to some good news -- the day there's all this talk about the filibuster the nuclear option.
Can you tell us what's going on break it down in simple terms for a -- Well basically the filibuster is when one senator or more stands up and says that you gonna speak and -- you can speak no more.
And it's sometimes it happens.
Where delays in -- you don't speak you just ask for a sixty vote margin which means more than 5060.
Senators have to vote to pass something.
It has been used more recently in the Democrats are unhappy about it.
So they want to change the rules.
That in order change the rules they have to break a rule to change the rules as we don't normally change the rules in the middle of the year.
All that being said.
There -- used for the filibuster I used the filibuster.
To make the president respond can you kill an American with the drone without a trial.
Any -- said no.
I'm using the filibuster or -- hole right now.
To hold up the FBI director because he's using drones to spy on Americans but won't tell us how he's using -- So I'm using the filibuster to get information so I think it's an important tool so tell us a little bit more about that's -- you're putting a hold on -- explain what that means it's a little bit and -- political -- maybe people don't understand what that means go ahead.
A -- is like a filibuster in the sense that I'm saying that if you want it to him to be released from my hole which is kind of figurative.
If you want to vote on him you're gonna have to end my filibuster.
And have a sixty vote margin and didn't do it again.
Now some people -- all -- that's ridiculous your just an obstructionist.
My response would be I'm trying to get a real truth.
Is the FBI using the bill of rights are they seeking a warrant from a judge before they spy on us that to -- is an important truth.
And the only -- do it is by using my leverage as a senator.
So I think the leverage of using the filibuster to get information.
And to make the president of -- the law.
I think it's a very important to our founding fathers put it in there.
For precisely this reason well it could.
For that reason to to call attention to what what they're trying to do especially here in the minority you can do that and in it frankly if if -- didn't have a filibuster.
What what would stop prison Obama from a point and say Al Sharpton do as attorney general or -- -- -- on the Supreme Court.
Right if you -- get it to get an extremist like that someone was an extreme point of view.
The majority here could pass it with 51 votes but with a filibuster.
Then it would take sixty votes here less likely to get someone -- those kind of extreme views to be nominated or approved by the senate.
OK so tell me again what's what's your hold on James no we've got to meet the president bomb once Hudson put him is in in as director of the FBI.
Yeah -- and I'm placing a hold on it not because I have the intention of ultimately defeating him.
But -- at a slow it down enough.
To see if the administration respond to my questions.
I asked the FBI about fifteen questions about three or four weeks ago.
But they haven't responded to me I want to know.
When the FBI uses a drone to fly over my property or someone's house.
Are they getting a warrant first or they just doing it Willy Nilly because they hand.
The thing about a drone is it has an amazing ability to look everywhere.
From 50000 feet you don't know your being spied upon and I think that that kind of spying goes against the right to privacy that all Americans have.
And I want to make sure that this is of being done without a judge's warrant.
If it is not going to be Ohio Iowa highly -- what's going on -- trying to stop him and last thoughts -- why you have this whole on the nominees.
Can they break -- hold.
He did when they break the hold as they bring it to the floor they get sixty votes so a whole really isn't that you stop someone indefinitely.
-- that you threaten to slow down the process.
-- that it's sort of like dug a hole is like the beginning of a filibuster.
And should they bring it to the floor and I choose to speak like I did on the drone.
Then as long as I can speak back and stop the debate.
But there are certain physical limits to how long you could speak when you can't hold things forever you -- edit an hour sir you did thirteen hours what would you do differently this time.
Ten issues gotta have Tennessee next time.
And what about.
Didn't -- you like to eat and drink by doing this I mean it.
It's -- gallery -- I have more food in my pockets I have a lot of candy bars that people were bringing me and now senator Kirk probably a thermos and an apple.
But then it turned out that was against the rules and right sergeant at arms took my -- land permits from me.
Which is kind of comical senators and great -- we have to leave or coming up against the heartbreak appreciate your time but we understand that if you don't hear from president bombing and hang -- -- their whole.
James coming thank you very much senator --
