A GOP Ultimatum to Vlad
Townhall.com, by Pat Buchanan

Original Article

Posted By:Blackeagle, 7/29/2014 7:07:00 PM

With the party united, the odds are now at least even that the GOP will not only hold the House but also capture the Senate in November. But before traditional conservatives cheer that prospect, they might take a closer look at the foreign policy that a Republican Senate would seek to impose upon the nation. Specifically, they should spend time reading S. 2277, the "Russian Aggression Prevention Act of 2014," introduced by Sen. Bob Corker on May 1, and endorsed by half of the Senate´s GOP caucus.

Comments:
Busy day for the Russian sanctions crowd, among them apparantly Sen. Corker (R-TN), separated at birth from both Lamar Alexander and John McCain who plans on adopting Moldova, Ukraine, etc as honorary 52nd, 53rd states - or at least honorary members of NATO - Where an attack on one member is an attack on all. All three men share a similar urge for things like amnesty, lots and lots of guest workers, and running for President. Corker is said to be targeting 2016 for his run for the White House.

How depressing, OP. Didn´t know that Corker is actually planning a run for the WH in 2016. How many people outside of Tennessee, other than political junkies and colleagues, even remember having heard of him?

Corker is the genius behind raising the gasoline tax. Reading s.2277 shows that the man is simply an idiot trying to score political points.

Tell me Senator, what would be your suggested course of action if Russia places missiles again in Cuba? What if they put military units in Panama and Venezuela? Do you not think Putin and Russia wouldn´t regard your suggestions the same way?

Oh well, with Obama´s speech about restoring the integrity of Ukraine as being the only way back to normal relations it is obvious that a war is in the making.

Is Pat suggesting that the a GOP win in November would be bad because afterwards the GOP would be nasty to Vlad?

Using that logic we should vote for the Communist Party USA. If it still exists.

As usual on a foreign policy issue, Pat Buchanan is right.

A confusing article, is Pat suggesting we should stand aside while vlad does as he wishes? Hindsight is 20-20 but the best response would have been to take out one of his aircraft carriers before he took the eastern ports.

IMHO, Buchanan´s a senile old fool, grasping for attention by being controversial. [Hey! I think I just defined myself.] RINO Corker is a distasteful politician (sorry for the redundancy there, folks).

There is an old caution, applicable (in paraphrase) to the Russian bear: "**** with the bear and you´re liable to get mauled."

Yeah, I can see it now. Our "warrior" ranks riddled with homosexuals and transgenders up against the Russian Spetsnaz. [The key words are "up against."]

You know, I would guess I could go into the bill bins in the House and the Senate and probably dredge up a bill that calls for the stretching of kangaroo hides on the white house lawn. There´s a bill in the bin for everything from soup to nuts and the olives on the side. It´s stories like this that get attention, though.

The West on the wrong path
Handelsblatt (Germany), by Gabor Steingart    Original Article
Posted By: Blackeagle- 8/8/2014 1:53:10 PM     Post Reply
Every war is accompanied by a kind of mental mobilization: war fever. Even smart people are not immune to controlled bouts of this fever. “This war in all its atrociousness is still a great and wonderful thing. It is an experience worth having“ rejoiced Max Weber in 1914 when the lights went out in Europe. (snip) “History is not repeating itself!” But can we be so sure about that these days? In view of the war events in the Crimean and eastern Ukraine, the heads of states and governments of the West suddenly have no more questions and all the

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday would not say the United States is at war with ISIS, telling CNN in an interview that the administration´s strategy includes "many different things that one doesn´t think of normally in context of war." "What we are doing is engaging in a very significant counterterrorism operation," Kerry told CNN´s Elise Labott in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. "It´s going to go on for some period of time. If somebody wants to think about it as being a war with ISIL, they can do so, but the fact is it´s a major counterterrorism operation that

A majority of the Palin family — Sarah, Todd, Bristol, and Track — was allegedly involved in a booze-filled brawl over the weekend in which the former vice presidential candidate reportedly screamed, “Don’t you know who I am?” According to reports from local bloggers, the Palin crew showed up at a party in Wasilla following a day at the Iron Dog snowmobile race. According to local blogger Amanda Coyne, witnesses at the scene said Palin’s eldest son, Track, showed up to the party in a stretch Hummer. He then confronted a man who had previously dated one of his sisters,

Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) said in an interview with the Washington Free Beacon that the “hatred and bigotry” he encountered when he was booed off the stage at a Middle Eastern Christian conference for defending Israel on Wednesday night was like nothing he has previously seen in his political career. “I’ve certainly encountered audiences that disagreed with a particular point of view. But this virulent display of hatred and bigotry was remarkable, and considerably different from anything I’ve previously encountered,” Cruz said, just a few hours after his pro-Israel speech to the In Defense of Christians conference was drowned

Obama´s Speech on ISIS, in Plain English

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

Kimberly Cole was part of the coalition that voted in 2008 to make Barack Obama the 44th president and gave him another four years in 2012 to deliver on his promises of hope and change. Now, the 36-year-old mother of three young children in Valencia, Calif., is among the majority of Americans who have lost confidence in Obama’s leadership and the job he is doing as president. “He’s been faced with a lot of challenges, and he’s lost his way,” Cole said in an interview. She worries that Obama lacks the resolve needed at a time when things at home

Berlin - President Obama´s declaration of war against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria marks a decisive break in the American constitutional tradition. Nothing attempted by his predecessor, George W. Bush, remotely compares in imperial hubris. Mr. Bush gained explicit congressional consent for his invasions (Snip) Mr. Obama may rightly be frustrated by gridlock in Washington, but his assault on the rule of law is a devastating setback for our constitutional order. His refusal even to ask the Justice Department to provide a formal legal pretext for the war on ISIS is astonishing.

Rarely has a president faced a greater challenge in establishing his credibility for a new foreign-policy move than Barack Obama did in his nationally televised speech tonight. A CNN poll earlier this week found that just 30 percent of voters thought Obama had presented a clear plan for fighting the Islamic State. While Obama now pledges to ask Congress to train and aid Syrian rebels who would fight the group, voters remember that he backed similar plans in Syria in 2013, when his advisers saw Syrian president Bashar Assad as the major threat. The new Fox News poll out today has more

A high school football booster club in Ventura was prohibited from selling Chick-fil-A sandwiches at its back-to-school night event because the principal didn’t like the restaurant owner’s position on gay marriage, according to CBS Los Angeles. Val Wyatt, principal of Ventura High School, was quoted in the Ventura County Star as stating, “With their political stance on gay rights and because the students of Ventura High School and their parents would be at the event, I didn’t want them on campus.” The principal was echoed by Ventura Unified School District Superintendent Trudy Tuttle Arriaga, who said, “We value inclusivity and diversity

SAN DIEGO — African-American elementary students in California were chronically truant at nearly four times the rate of all students during the last school year, according to a state report released Friday. The report by the California Attorney General´s office is the first time the data has been broken down according to race and income levels. Officials say such data is needed to address the problem. Poverty and suspensions are contributing factors. Overall, more than 250,000 elementary school students missed 10 percent or more of the 2013-2014 school year or roughly 18 or more school days. The absences were highest at the kindergarten and

President Obama just announced that he is bringing a counter-terrorism strategy to an insurgency fight. He was at pains to repeat the phrase “counter-terror” four times in a short speech. Noting that ISIL is not a state (partly because the international community thankfully does not recognize it), he declared, “ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.” Neither of those sentences, unfortunately, is true. ISIL is an insurgent group that controls enormous territory in Iraq and Syria that it governs. It maneuvers conventional light

Throughout his presidency, President Obama has emphasized one point while talking about Islamist extremists: They are not practicing Islam, he has said, they are perverting it. He took that a step further Wednesday night. While announcing that he´s expanding the campaign against the Islamic State extremist group into Syria, Obama said flatly that this group, which is trying to install a caliphate in the Middle East, "is not Islamic." He didn´t say they are perverting their religion; he said they´re not even part of that religion. "No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of [the Islamic State´s] victims

Check your hygiene privilege. Cabbies who smell badly are probably just oppressed folks who came directly from their terrorist training camp to the airport and didn’t have time to change. Body odour is among 52 criteria that officials at San Diego International Airport use to judge taxi drivers. Cabbies say that smacks of prejudice and discrimination. It does discriminate between cabbies who smell like an open sewer and those who don’t. It further prejudges what a good smell is.
