Rick Perry, Rand Paul
Tussle Over Iraq

Buzzfeed, by McKay Coppins

Original Article

Posted By:aliciacolon, 7/12/2014 2:49:55 PM

In the latest example of the foreign policy divide within the Republican Party, the Washington Post published a sharply critical op-ed by Texas Gov. Rick Perry Friday attacking Sen. Rand Paul’s position on Iraq and calling him “curiously blind” to national security threats in the region. Perry’s op-ed, headlined “Isolationist policies make the threat of terrorism even greater,” calls out Paul by name repeatedly, and criticizes him for arguing it would be a mistake for the U.S. to take sides in the conflict currently ravaging Iraq: …it’s disheartening to hear fellow Republicans, such as Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), suggest that our nation

Not a fair fight. Rand is a lightweight. He can´t compete with a heavyweight.

I adore Governor Perry´s description of Rand Paul´s foreign policy views as "curiously blind." Talk about an apt description.

Perry is my dream candidate too. There´s a Reagan quality about him. However, more importantly, he´s someone we can trust to do the right thing. I´m also a big fan of Scott Walker.

My Governor, Rick Perry, would make us proud as a president. But, I don´t see how he gets there.

You know, for being an ophthalmologist, Rand Paul has a hard time seeing the forest through the trees. Perhaps he should have his eyes checked.

I have to lean Sen Paul´s way on this one despite Gov Perry´s correct assessment of the situation. 1). Would obama do the correct thing, or if by accident he picked the right path would he follow through? 2). We now engage with ROE´s which cost American lives and neither side is worth one American life. Recent history shows we can win any war and lose the peace by implementing policy to make the terrorists savages like us, thus the only sane policy is to stay out but let them know if/when we are hit again we will NUKE and PAVE. I would start with Mecca.

Palestinians Flee Northern Gaza as
a Cease-Fire Appears Elusive
New York Times, by Steven Erlanger and Isabel Kirshner    Original Article

GAZA CITY — Several thousand Palestinians, defying the urging of Hamas to remain in their homes, fled areas in northern Gaza early Sunday after Israel warned them through fliers and phone calls of major attacks to come. Israel and Hamas seemed to signal little public interest in international appeals for a cease-fire as they continued their barrages. More than 130 rockets were fired out of Gaza into Israel on Sunday, with 22 intercepted, the Israeli Army said, while

Team Hillary is staring daggers at New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, the one journalist who actually won a Pulitzer (for commentary) on a Clinton scandal (Lewinsky). Dowd had the audacity to knock Chelsea Clinton for giving speeches for $75,000 a pop, even if it went to the Clinton Foundation, which is designed for the further aggrandizement of the Clinton reputation. It began: CHELSEA CLINTON never acted out during the eight years she came of age as America’s first daughter.

The ferocity of Friday’s unanimous rejection by the Israeli government of Secretary of State John Kerry’s cease was kept quiet to prevent a formal rupture of relations between the two erstwhile allies, reports Israel’s Channel 2 Television. The popular and widely-watched Saturday evening newscast quotes several unnamed high officials in the Israeli government who claimed that Kerry’s cease fire proposal represented a “complete cave-in” to Hamas’s demands for an end to fighting in its war against Israel. The official, and others cited in The Times of Israel, claimed that Israel was “stunned” and “absolutely horrified” that Kerry’s ceasefire proposal, which contained

President Obama appears poised to take executive action that would legalize as many as 5 million illegal immigrant parents of U.S.-born children, a prospect that riles local immigration critics and adds a new dimension to concern about swelling immigrant populations in states like Massachusetts eyed as hosting sites for thousands of children who crossed the border unaccompanied. The Associated Press reported yesterday White House officials are laying the groundwork for an executive order that would automatically legalize roughly 5 million of an estimated 11 million people who have entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas.

When The Times of Israel’s Avi Issacharoff first reported the content of John Kerry’s ceasefire proposal on Friday afternoon, I wondered if something had gotten lost in translation. It seemed inconceivable that the American secretary of state would have drafted an initiative that, as a priority, did not require the dismantling of Hamas’s rocket arsenal and network of tunnels dug under the Israeli border. Yet the reported text did not address these issues at all, nor call for the demilitarization of Gaza. It seemed inconceivable that the secretary’s initiative would specify the need to address Hamas’s demands for a lifting of

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) believes the House of Representatives will immediately begin impeachment proceedings if President Barack Obama unilaterally grants work permits and amnesty to millions more illegal immigrants by the "end of summer." Appearing on Breitbart News Saturday with co-hosts Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon and Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow from the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas, King said that if Obama "completely destroys the rule of law with the stroke of a pen" and "Congress fails to act," there will be "enough Republicans who didn´t have a desire to do this" that will be "immediately activated" to consider impeachment.

Former presidential nominee Mitt Romney would win the popular vote if a rematch of the 2012 election against President Obama were held today, a CNN/ORC poll has revealed. According to the poll, if the 2012 election were held again today, Romney would receive 53% of the popular vote, and Mr. Obama would receive 44%, CNN reported. Obama beat Romney 51%-47% in the actual election. The poll said, however, that the former Massachusetts governor would lose against Hillary Clinton by double digits in a hypothetical election. Mrs. Clinton would earn 55% of the vote, with Mr. Romney at 42%.

Police detained two men at a Midtown hotel late Friday after a doorman reported they possessed a pair of pressure cookers like those used to make the Boston Marathon bombs. But the men say it was a misunderstanding: They plan to use the pressure cookers to prepare rice, chicken and meat. Mohammad Alotaibi, 21, and Ayoub Alawadhi, 20, pulled up to the InterContinental Hotel on East 48th Street late Friday with the pressure cookers in their car’s trunk, said law enforcement sources. A doorman called Crimestoppers, and NYPD counterterrorism and intelligence officers arrived to question the men. Police did not

Sunday on CNN´s "Fareed Zakaria GPS," former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton discussed the United States standing in the world and said former President George W. Bush is the president who made her "proud to be an American." Clinton then seemingly took a shot at Obama´s current lack of direction in world leadership. "We have to go back out and sell ourselves," Clinton said. "It is not to be taken for granted. What do we stand for and, how do we intend to lead and manage? How do we try to enlist the rest of the world in this struggle between cooperation and order and conflict and disorder which is really at the root of so much

In 2012, four years after sort-of-stumping-but-not-really for her mother’s presidential campaign, Chelsea Clinton sat down for a lengthy, laudatory profile for Vogue. “Historically, I deliberately tried to lead a private life in the public eye,” she said. “And now I am trying to lead a purposefully public life.” Last April, Clinton told Fast Company magazine much the same thing. As she also did with NBC’s Brian Williams, who interviewed Clinton after she was hired by the network as a “special correspondent” — albeit one with no journalism experience. Her starting salary: $600,000 a year. “For most of my life I did deliberately

VILLA PARK, Ill. — Fast food workers from across the country have voted in suburban Chicago to escalate their campaign for higher wages and union representation by including civil disobedience. More than 1,300 workers gathered today in Villa Park, Illinois. Some workers say they’re prepared to engage in sit-down strikes and organize more workers in their campaign to win $15-an-hour wages and a union. Their actions so far have included one-day strikes and a protest outside this year’s McDonald’s Corp. shareholder meeting. Industry officials say a $15 wage would hurt job creation, and that the solution is more education and

World leaders are increasingly pointing to U.S. President Obama’s failures in the Middle East. Some are direct and blunt. For example, during his recent visit to Brazil, Russian President Vladimir Putin was asked by journalists about U.S. sanctions against Russia due to the Ukrainian crisis. While naturally condemning such moves, part of his response was to accuse the Obama administration of “encouraging war between neighboring states.” In the same context, Putin added: American objectives have not been realized, nor have they accomplished anything, because everything has collapsed. Afghanistan faces problems, and Iraq and Libya are falling apart. Egypt also was

Updated 2:00 pm: An Israeli air strike in southern Gaza hours before a humanitarian truce was declared killed 20 people, including 11 children, most of them from a single family, medics said. Separately, the bodies of at least another 85 Palestinians were recovered from rubble across Gaza on Saturday, raising the overall Palestinian death toll in the 19-day Israeli terror campaign to 985, the overwhelming majority of them civilians. "Ambulance crews have recovered the bodies of 85 martyrs under destroyed houses, including children and women, across the Gaza Strip, bringing the total number of martyrs to 985 as a result of the

She walked through her running tests and got winded climbing stairs, yet a physically unfit female FDNY probie was still allowed out in the field like a normal graduate — and given a year to pass, The Post has learned. “She’s literally the most pathetic specimen of physical fitness I’ve ever seen,” fumed an academy classmate of Choeurlyne Doirin, 39, who was given a uniform and a “light-duty” assignment even though she did not graduate on June 2 with the other 286 cadets. (Snip) “She started walking halfway through the run,” the source said. “She couldn’t even make it up
