*VIDEO* Newt Gingrich: Rand Paul is the pioneer for the future

libertyNewt Gingrich appeared on Sean Hannity‘s show Thursday to praise Senator Rand Paul‘s 13 hour long filibuster during the nomination of John Brennan to the position of head of the CIA. Senator Paul took a principled stand during the nomination process as a way to protest President Barack Obama‘s drone program and the indiscriminate extrajudicial killings of American citizens. The President is responsible for the deaths of Anwar Al-Awlaki and his 16 year old son, both killed by drone strikes in separate incidents.Newt Gingrich appeared on Sean Hannity‘s show Thursday to discuss Senator Rand Paul‘s filibuster during the nomination of John Brennan to the position of head of the CIA.

Former presidential candidate Gingrich hailed the leadership of Senator Rand Paul as the beginning of a restoration of a constitutional republic. Gingrich and Hannity celebrated the rise of Republicans such as Paul, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio while castigating Senator John McCain. McCain had vocally opposed Paul’s filibuster against the president, snubbing him in public on the Senate floor on Thursday.

Hannity and Gingrich described what felt like a “seismic shift” towards the politics of people like Senator Paul and away from establishment ways of thinking. Is this the beginning of a new libertarian era in modern American politics?
