Rand Paul vs. Rick Perry: Who’s winning?
The Christian Science Monitor ^ | July 14, 2014 | Peter GrierPosted on 7/14/2014, 1:37:39 PM by ConservingFreedomThis Rand Paul versus Rick Perry GOP thunderstorm popped up pretty fast, didn’t it?
It was a dark cloud on the horizon on Friday, when Governor Perry of Texas published an op-ed in The Washington Post that attacked Senator Paul as a foreign policy isolationist.
Paul is reluctant to devote more US troops and weapons to Iraq, and Perry used that position to portray the Kentucky lawmaker as the reverse of Ronald Reagan, as someone who wants to hunker down at home rather than lead the world.“Paul is drawing his own red line along the water’s edge, creating a giant moat where superpowers can retire from the world,” Perry wrote, mockingly.

Andrea Mitchell slammed Hillary Clinton saying she ”lacks self-awareness” and is “out of touch” Sunday on Meet The Press.“The book tour has looked like a political campaign. I think it’s a little bit that she was rusty and a little bit of lack of self-awareness, when she talks about being dead broke and she then tried to fix it.
But still, not getting the language – to really understand that she is a little bit out of touch,” Mitchell said.“She doesn’t quite realize as Ruth Marcus wrote in the Washington Post, she should stop giving paid speeches, should stop asking colleges to pay out of a foundation.
She’s got enough money just let it go at this stage, she concluded.Last week, Mitchell’s colleague Chuck Todd also criticized Clinton over her wealth gaffe.

Surviving the National Crisis of 2014
by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD April 28, 2014
The United States has reached a political precipice. The country is facing the greatest Constitutional and existential crisis since the Civil War, a situation which may expose America to assaults on its national security equivalent to Pearl Harbor and 9/11.
In an effort to force a radical transformation of the United States, the rogue Obama Administration, enabled by a complicit Congress and a compliant media, has attempted to undermine the Constitution, usurp the power it reserves for the States and deny the rights it guarantees to the American people.
After an argument about a leave denied, Specialist Ivan Lopez pulled out a .45-caliber Smith & Wesson handgun and began a shooting spree at Fort Hood, America’s biggest stateside base, that left three soldiers dead and 16 wounded. When he did so, he also pulled America’s fading wars out of the closet.
This time, a Fort Hood mass killing, the second in four and a half years, was committed by a man who was neither a religious nor a political “extremist.” He seems to have been merely one of America’s injured and troubled veterans who now number in the hundreds of thousands.

Obama VS. the Generals

After a spate of news stories this summer citing tensions between President Barack Obama and his top military commanders over the possibility of U.S. intervention in Syria, White House chief of staff Denis McDonough hastened to assure the Washington Post that everything was, in fact, copacetic: The president “appreciates” candid military advice “above all else,” McDonough insisted, and has “close, and in some instances warm, relationships with his military chiefs,” as the Post put it.
Originally posted on Lightsigns:
Gen. Keith Alexander, the head of the embattled National Security Agency, is calling on governments to stop journalists from public disclosure of his agency’s secret documents.
“I think it’s wrong that that newspaper reporters have all these documents, the 50,000-whatever they have and are selling them and giving them out as if these-you know it just doesn’t make sense,” Alexander said in an interview with the Defense Department’s “Armed With Science” blog.
“We ought to come up with a way of stopping it. I don’t know how to do that. That’s more of the courts and the policymakers but, from my perspective, it’s wrong to allow this to go on,” the NSA director added.

The Obama administration secretly won permission from a surveillance court in 2011 to reverse restrictions on the National Security Agency’s use of intercepted phone calls and e-mails, permitting the agency to search deliberately for Americans’ communications in its massive databases, according to interviews with government officials and recently declassified material.
The military revolt against the Obama administration’s plan to launch a potentially disastrous attack on Syria is gathering pace, with both top brass and regular service members expressing their vehement opposition to the United States becoming entangled in the conflict.
The backlash began to spread on social media yesterday with numerous members of the military posting photos of themselves holding up signs stating that they would refuse to fight on the same side as Al-Qaeda in Syria. The photos went viral, with one post alone generating over 16,000 shares on Facebook.
Others have posted their photos on Twitter alongside the hashtag #IdidntJoin.

He told Washington Post reporter Barton Gellman that the U.S. intelligence community “will most certainly kill you if they think you are the single point of failure that could stop this disclosure and make them the sole owner of this information.”
