Obama's ISIS War: Liberals To The Rescue?

President Obama's request for congressional authorization to arm Syrian rebels to help combat the burgeoning threat of the Islamic State would be in serious trouble in the House if not for the unlikely support of liberal Democrats who savaged George W. Bush for the Iraq war. At a closed-door GOP meeting Thursday, Obama's plan to arm Syrian Free Army rebels ran into a buzzsaw of opposition from conservatives, who deemed it both fraught with peril and too modest to do any good.

Lawmakers urge Senate to act on sex predator bill

A group of lawmakers led by Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania on Tuesday called on the Senate to pass a bill to keep sexual predators out of schools, saying added security checks on teachers, coaches and bus drivers are needed to protect students from potential harm. Toomey, a Republican, is co-sponsoring a bill with Sen. Joe Manchin , D-W.Va., that would require states that receive federal education funds to conduct periodic background checks.

Bill Clinton tells Florida Dems to back Charlie Crist with big turnout

"Typically in nonpresidential years, Republicans vote better than Democrats do," the former president said Friday night at a Miami campaign rally for Charlie Crist. "And we're not going to let that happen, are we?" Clinton's concern cropped up time and again in his 25-minute speech designed to vouch for the Democratic bona fides of Crist and fire up the faithful so that Florida Democrats can win their first governor's race since 1994.

Morphing Into 'Conventional Army,' Boko Haram Poised to 'Explode Any Day, Like ISIS'

As the world's attention is captured by the terrifying determination and bloody modus operandi of the Islamic State, an al-Qaeda affiliate that declared a caliphate last week is sweeping across northeast Nigeria with lightning-quick efficiency and equally brutal means in a bid to break up the most populous nation on the continent. Boko Haram was on a steady march through Borno state when it overran Gwoza, a city of about 275,000, declaring on Aug. 24 the town now had "nothing to do with Nigeria" - and declaring it "part of the Islamic caliphate."
