Rick Perry: Isolationist Policies
Make the Threat of Terrorism
Even Greater

Breitbart News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/12/2014 5:49:02 PM

Rick Perry writing at the Washington Post: As a veteran, and as a governor who has supported Texas National Guard deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, I can understand the emotions behind isolationism. Many people are tired of war, and the urge to pull back is a natural, human reaction. Unfortunately, we live in a world where isolationist policies would only endanger our national security even further. That’s why it’s disheartening to hear fellow Republicans, such as Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), suggest that our nation should ignore what’s happening in Iraq. The main problem with this argument is that it means

This is a tough one for me. Washington warned of "foreign entanglements", and the Monroe Doctrine worked for years. There are far too many visas allowing unfriendly "visitors" (let alone the illegal ones) into our country. Our borders are sieves.

Reagan was correct in pointing out that a nation without borders is not a nation. Nations, like good neighbors, need fences.

Yet, we do need eyes and ears on the ground overseas to thwart terrorist activity, and constructive alliances have greatly benefited the nation.

Controlled trade and immigration have contributed to the wealth that we used to have. Uncontrolled trade and immigration have pretty much dissipated that wealth.

We just need to be realistic about how "thin" to spread ourselves, and we need to avoid being pulled into the globalist trap.

An island in a turbulent sea needs sea walls. We are such a political island. We need borders that mean something if we are to avoid being swallowed up by the sea of humanity that surrounds us.

Democratic Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis lied about her Dallas Cowboys fandom, according to information flagged by her Republican opponent Greg Abbott’s campaign. “I heard the coach the other day talking about the fact that he couldn’t make any promises about what he and the team would be able to accomplish this year,” Davis said in a KCTK radio interview Wednesday. “I certainly wish our Cowboys the best. I grew up cheering for the Cowboys and I haven’t stopped since, and I’ll be cheering for them again this year.” But wait a minute. Davis’ daughter Amber told Vogue in August

Sotloff Family Furious with White

The family of Steven Sotloff, the latest American journalist beheaded by ISIS, is reportedly "outraged" at the Obama administration for "deliberate leaks" they interpret as "an attempt to absolve the administration of inaction." This reporting comes Wednesday from no less a source than the New York Times, which chose to bury the news under more than two dozen paragraphs: Last Thursday, Mr. Sotloff’s mother, Shirley, appealed to the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the self-proclaimed caliph of the Muslim world, to grant amnesty to her son. “I ask you to use your authority to spare his life,” she said

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. • Carrying identification documents and bitterness over their sudden joblessness, hundreds of ex-casino workers began filing for unemployment Wednesday morning, the first attendees at an assistance center that expects to process 5,000 newly laid-off workers over the next three days. The session at the Atlantic City Convention Center came after a brutal weekend that saw two casinos, the Showboat and Revel, close. Officials from the state Department of Labor and the main casino workers´ union, Local 54 of Unite-HERE, helped displaced workers file for unemployment and gave them information on signing up for health insurance and other

As CVS sharpens its focus on customer health, the nation´s second-largest drugstore chain will tweak its corporate name and stop the sale of tobacco nearly a month sooner than planned. CVS Caremark said it will now be known as CVS Health, effective immediately. The signs on its roughly 7,700 drugstores won´t change, so the change may not register with shoppers. However, those customers will see a big change when they check out. The cigars and cigarettes that used to fill the shelves behind store cash registers have been replaced with nicotine gum and signs urging visitors to kick the tobacco

The next time you have to take off your belt and shoes to gain access to the airplane you want to board, give a thought to Abdirahmaan Muhumed, the ISIS jihadi killed in Iraq. Because before he left Minnesota to fight for Allah, he worked as an airplane cleaner at Minneapolis St. Paukl International Airport, where he had “unfettered access” to airliners, the ramp area, and other supposedly secure areas. This information was uncovered by Fox affiliate KMSP: He was the second known American killed while fighting for ISIS in Syria, and the second from Minnesota -- and a Fox

Vice President Joe Biden delivered a passionate speech at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in New Hampshire, vowing to bring Islamic State terrorists to justice. Mentioning the deaths of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, Biden referred to the Islamic State terrorists as “barbarians” for beheading them on camera. "If they think the American people will be intimidated, they don´t know us very well,” Biden said, reminding the crowd that the United States came back after 9/11 and defeated Osama bin Laden. “When people harm Americans we don’t retreat, and we don’t forget,” he said. “They should know, we will follow them

Greg Abbott is the Texas Attorney General. He´s the frontrunner to be the next governor of Texas. (You might have heard of his opponent -- Wendy Davis.) Abbott is also a paraplegic, the result of an accident while he was jogging in his mid 20s. In Abbott´s new ad, produced by Erik Potholm and Paul Curcio, Abbott tells the story of how he adjusted to life in a wheelchair. (30-sec.

Now first lady Michelle Obama gets her turn on the comedy website "Funny or Die." Mrs. Obama makes a cameo in a faux movie trailer for a fake film called "Snackpocalypse," in which high school students become junk food zombies. "Don´t you hate when trailers give away the whole movie?" says Mrs. Obama, who has made healthy eating a major theme of her years as first lady. Mrs. Obama also says: "Can we just watch Frozen again?" Earlier this year, President Obama appeared on the "Funny or Die" talk show "Between Two Ferns," trading barbs with host Zach Galifianakis about

As the world burns, President Obama is taking criticism from all sides. Even Salon editor (and Free Beacon aficionado) Joan Walsh has conceded: “I’d probably have suggested not golfing after [Obama’s] moving statement on journalist James Foley’s execution.” Of course, most of this criticism is due to the prevalence of social media, but even so, Obama defenders have returned to one of their favorite arguments: Criticism of our current president is unprecedented; literally no one criticized the sitting president until 2009.

President Obama said Wednesday that the federal government has authenticated a video showing the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff at the hands of Islamist militants, and the U.S. objective now is to “degrade and destroy” those militants so they no longer pose a threat to the civilized world. Speaking at a press conference alongside Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves in the Estonian capital of Tallinn, Mr. Obama seemed to lay the groundwork for expanded U.S. action against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS.

President Obama needs to take action to stop Islamic State (Isis) militants from targeting cities in America and Western Europe, two senators have warned. Without offering specifics on any threats or suggestions on how to confront them, the leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees urged the White House to work to prevent the Islamic State extremists from launching attacks on US soil. The bipartisan pair shared a dire warning against Isis, which now has control of vast swathes of Syria and Iraq, has killed civilians from that region and beheaded American journalist James Foley. “This is

Kerry said Scripture, in particular the Book of Genesis, make clear it is our "duty" to protect the planet and we should look at Muslim countries "with a sense of stewardship of earth," adding, "That responsibility comes from God."

Now the couple are calling on President Barack Obama to step down, citing his reaction to the Foley video and ´lack of leadership´ in confronting ISIS.

President Obama’s spokesman emphasized that the United States tried to save journalist Steven Sotloff, who has reportedly been beheaded by ISIS terrorists. “The United States, as you know, has dedicated significant time and resources to try and rescue Mr. Sotloff,” Earnest told reporters when alerted that ISIS had claimed to have executed the kidnapped reporter. In the video, the authenticity of which Earnest could confirm, Sotloff is apparently killed by the same British jihadist who killed American photojournalist James Foley. “I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State,”

In remarks on the U.S. economy Monday, President Barack Obama said Congressional Republicans will eventually cave to public pressure to raise the federal minimum wage. Obama was speaking at the Laborfest festival hosted by the AFL-CIO in Milwaukee, Wis. “If I cared about these things, I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me,” he said. “I’m just saying. Because when the rest of the country is working to raise wages, but Republicans in Congress won’t, it ain’t right.” Noting the protests in recent months from fast food workers seeking higher wages, Obama said Republicans would open up to the

It took the Washington Post 2,017 words and 59 paragraphs in a feature about Dorian Johnson, who initially said that his friend Michael Brown was shot in the back, to reveal that the federal government´s autopsy also reportedly did not find that to be the case. As the Post noted in its profile of Dorian Johnson, Brown´s "body had been autopsied three times — once each by St. Louis County police, a pathologist hired by Brown’s family and federal authorities.

More important: Stop endangering all of us with your self-indulgent vacations and self-absorbed dithering, along with unconstitutional domestic power plays while the whole world burns. Barack Obama already is derelict in his duties as commander in chief. He ought to abdicate and just step off his self-made throne. Knowledgeable people were calling for Obama to begin air strikes against the Islamic State barbarians months before Obama could rouse himself to admit that the brutes were something other than “jayvee” terrorists. Because he didn’t, thousands of innocents died, villages were razed,
