Rick Perry Is Dead Wrong
Politico, by Sen. Rand Paul

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/14/2014 9:15:43 AM

There are many things I like about Texas Gov. Rick Perry, including his stance on the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution. But apparently his new glasses haven’t altered his perception of the world, or allowed him to see it any more clearly. There are obviously many important events going on in the world right now, but with 60,000 foreign children streaming across the Texas border, I am surprised Governor Perry has apparently still found time to mischaracterize and attack my foreign policy. Governor Perry writes a fictionalized account of my foreign policy so mischaracterizing my views that I wonder if he’s even

Since the dems will always lose the peace our only option is a promise to NUKE & PAVE if/when we are hit again. It might be a good idea to work towards energy independence in the meantime.

Rand points out his disdain for Perry by mentioning his glasses. As an ophthalmologist he should know that he wears them for a deteriorating vision in one eye not to appear smarter. He´s carrying Dems water to criticize strong 2016 candidate.

To paraphrase Sen. Paul, there are many things I like about him, but his naive, willfully blind foreign policy stance is not one of them. The world is bad neighborhood. Those who oppose the invasion of Iraq are saying we and the world would be better off today with Saddam Hussein in power. That is patently asinine.
Hard won security gains in Iraq are being deliberately squandered away. Pl. see Dinesh D´Souza´s America if you want to know why. How to stop this slide and minimize irreversible damage is the urgent question of the hour. And, frankly, IMO the Governor has a better answer.

When are people going to stop thinking in terms of Democrats, Republicans, and Libertarians? The labels ceased to have meaning a while back.

Americans must proceed under the banner of truth. The banner of lies has taken over the parties, the politicians, business and even religion.

No one reads history, I guess.

I´ve noticed an interesting trend. For a while conservatives were prominent in comments at Daily Beast, Mediaite and Politico with good commentary and facts to back up their disagreement with various articles.

The OFA must have caught wind of this because they´re now filled with the leftist cult talking point regurgitators. Pretty sad. I wonder where all those right-leaning commenters went and if they´re being deleted by mods in favor of the cult.

I was afraid the effects of growing up with Ron Paul would show itself at the wrong time. Fortunately, here it is now, rather than a year from now when the GOP process is getting under way.

Rand Paul lost me when he threw in with Mitch McConnell.... deals have been made, and Rand thinks he sees handwriting on the wall.

But whose handwriting? That wall is further dividing us.

Et tu, Rand? I just leaned further toward Rick Perry.

A week ago, a woman was charged with leaving her child in the car while she went into a store. Her 11-year-old child. This week, a woman was arrested for allowing her 9-year-old daughter to go to the park alone. Which raises just one question: America, what the heck is wrong with you? I’m not interested in defending mothers who are under stress or are low-wage workers without a lot of great child-care options. I mean, fine, but these defenses should be unnecessary because what the heck are we doing arresting parents for things that were perfectly normal 30 years ago? At

Thursday was a head-swiveling day for all of Washington. When not transfixed by the horror of a commercial airliner spread all over the Ukrainian countryside, their eyes are glued to the sight of watching Israeli tanks roll into Gaza. Unfortunately, that´s typical inside-the-Beltway behavior: flitting from one crisis to another, intent on what’s just happened. It would do better to start thinking about what’s going to happen next, and what the U.S. can do to assure the best outcome. What’s next? In Gaza, Hamas will be worse off for picking a fight with the Israeli military. The Arab world isn´t rushing

   

 



 
What would cause Hillary

Washington – Hillary Clinton told Charlie Rose on Thursday that if she does run for president in 2016, she would have "a very specific agenda" about the future of America. But with polls showing her as the favorite for the Democratic nomination and a cadre of groups already organizing for a prospective campaign, what would cause the former secretary of state to not run for office? "It would be wholly personal," Clinton said, according to a transcript of the PBS show. "Because I know so much about the job and how hard it is, I am very struck by the

Why Airlines Didn´t Avoid

The possibility that the civilian jetliner downed over war-torn eastern Ukraine with nearly 300 people onboard was hit by a missile could have profound consequences for the world´s airlines. Airlines might have to be more vigilant about avoiding trouble spots, making flights longer and causing them to burn more costly fuel. They may even be forced to reconsider many international routes. In the hours after Thursday´s disaster involving a Malaysia Airlines jet, carriers around the globe began rerouting flights to avoid Ukraine. Some had been circumventing the country for weeks. Experts questioned the airline´s decision to fly near the fighting, even as

WASHINGTON – George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley and former Acting U.S. Solicitor General Walter Dellinger engaged in an intense but friendly back-and-forth on Capitol Hill Wednesday. Sitting as witnesses before the House Rules Committee, they debated a host of arcane constitutional issues, lodging points and counterpoints to one another’s arguments about whether the House of Representatives can sue the president of the United States. The Turley/Dellinger tête-à-tête featured court case citations, historical precedent and the intentions of the Founders. Reduced to bystanders, lawmakers listened in rapt attention from the dais, mulling the polite dialogue between two of the nation’s most-nimble

On September 1, 1983, Soviet fighter aircraft shot down Korean Air Lines flight 007 which had inadvertently entered Soviet airspace on its way from Anchorage to Seoul. All 269 people on board were killed. President Reagan swiftly condemned “this crime against humanity,” which only redoubled his desire to bring down the “evil empire” (as he had called the Soviet Union earlier that year). We can only hope for similar moral clarity today from the U.S. and Europe in the aftermath of the equally outrageous shooting down of Malaysian Airlines flight 17 over Ukraine with 295 people on board including more

The plane went down around 11:30 ET, possibly with Americans on board and most assuredly with dire consequences for eastern European geopolitics. But since we’re in the post-optics “YOLO” phase of lame-duckery, that’s really no reason to cancel a fun day out. At approximately 12:50 pm, the motorcade stopped at the Charcoal Pit, a popular, established restaurant just north of Wilmington, Del. Known for its burgers and sundaes. Obama shook hands and mingled with many of the diners, stopping at one point to pick up seven-month old Jaidyn Oates, and pose for a photo. He invoked Vice Presiident Biden’s name

Girkin is the defense minister of the separatist republic that it is battling to enforce Russia´s hold on the Ukraine.

Liberals scoffed in 1983 when President Ronald Reagan first proposed the Strategic Defense Initiative missile defense system. They called it "Star Wars" and claimed the technology was fictional. Other critics took a different tack, arguing that Star Wars would be harmful if it did work because it would upset the delicate nuclear balance between the United States and Soviet Union. The Soviets depended on the threat of mutual assured destruction in order to maintain diplomatic parity with a wealthier, more advanced adversary. To disturb that balance, some analysts argued, would destabilize the international order. Of course, the Soviets, whose entire system

After President Barack Obama breathlessly addressed four different foreign-policy issues during a 10-minute statement, he summed up the state of a crisis-filled world in one sentence. "We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Obama said. Obama touched on the laundry list of global flashpoints situations during a statement from the White House on Wednesday — the disputed elections in Afghanistan, the negotiations on Iran´s nuclear program, the Israeli-Palestinian crisis, and, finally, the conflict in Ukraine. The most significant recent development in these situations was the announcement of new sanctions on Russia shortly before the president spoke. Obama described those

Barack Obama provoked fury in the U.S. by casually devoting mere moments to the deaths of 295 people aboard a Malaysian airliner on Thursday in Wilmington, Delaware, and then launching into jokes and his prepared remarks on the need to expand America´s transportation infrastructure. Twenty-three Americans are feared dead after the jetliner crashed in eastern Ukraine. Obama declared that ´it looks like it may be a terrible tragedy, but not before enthusiastically declaring that ´it is wonderful to be back in Delaware.´ ´Before I begin, obviously the world is watching reports of a downed passenger jet near the Russia-Ukraine border.
