Usual Suspects: GOP Senate Scaremongers Claim Passage of 'USA Freedom Act' Will Strengthen ISIS

The GOP never misses an opportunity to scaremonger, and this time they're centering their authoritarian bona fides on the Senate version of the USA Freedom Act. The legislation is rather tame, in my opinion, compared to what is needed to rein in the NSA and other intelligence agencies in their ill-conceived quest to capture every byte of electronic information in the world.

Chuck Todd Spends Better Part Of Sanders Interview Fishing For Soundbites Bashing Obama And Clinton

Host Chuck Todd spent the better part of Bernie Sanders very first appearance on Meet the Press fishing for soundbites of Sanders attacking President Obama and Hillary Clinton. Unlike Sen. John McCain, who has been on Meet the Press sixty nine times and counting, this was Sen. Bernie Sanders first appearance on the show, so naturally host Chuck Todd wanted to spend the better part of it trying to get Sanders to attack President Obama and his potential 2016 presidential rival, Hillary Clinton.

Sen. Graham: 'Apparently Nobody's Been Listening to What...

Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain have been two of the most frequent guests on the Sunday political shows over the past few years, but Graham is beginning to wonder whether anybody has been even been listening to them.* Guest host John Roberts asked Sunday morning if the best way to fight ISIS is to embolden Iraqi and Syrian forces rather than rely on a U.S. military presence that could further inflame anti-American sentiment. "Apparently nobody's been listening to what Senator McCain and I have been saying for the past three years!" a revved-up Graham answered.

My Turn: Fear is pushing America back to war

Maybe it would have been different if the vicious zealots who held journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff captive had simply lined them up against a wall and shot them. But the barbaric beheadings were more than most Americans could bear even to think about.

U.S. foreign policy train wreck

It seems evident that U.S. President Barack Obama today still does not understand how much he owes to Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko. If he did, and if the cease-fire and negotiation terms Poroshenko has signed with the country's pro-Russian insurgents in the southeast of his country and their friends in Moscow continue to hold, he would thank Poroshenko for an invaluable gift of peace to Americans and NATO, as well as to his own country.

Obama repeats plan to 'destroy' ISIS, but again avoids saying 'war'

President Obama on Saturday restated his plan to destroy Islamic State but did not say the United States "is at war" with the Middle East terror group, creating more uncertainty what exactly is the U.S. mission. "We're moving ahead with our strategy to degrade and ultimately destroy this terrorist organization," Obama said in his weekly radio and online address.

Get ready for Congress's hypocrisy on the Islamic State, Mr. Obama

President Obama had better take care in his consultations with Congress on plans to combat the Islamic State. Secretary of State John Kerry may be able to assemble a durable coalition of overseas partners to join with U.S. forces.

No victory without boots on the ground

If a lawmaker or a candidate or any American wants to understand the problems with President Obama's approach to the Islamic State, he or she should look no further than the remarks delivered by Rep. Buck McKeon at the American Enterprise Institute. To be blunt, there is too much magical thinking going on.

Arizona lawmakers want greater say in U.S. strategy against ISIS

Rep. Trent Franks, R-Glendale, thinks President Barack Obama's plan to fight ISIS is 'insufficient,' but believes Congress will ultimately approve his request for military personnel to train fighters in the region. Rep. Matt Salmon, R-Mesa, said that if President Barack Obama wants a declaration of war for the fight against ISIS, he should come to Congress and ask for one.

We finally learn why John McCain is always, always on our 'news'

Someone finally got CNN to explain why Sen. John McCain seems to have a permanent chair on all the major news networks. It certainly is a window into the dark and hollow cable news soul.

2010 McCain Tweet "Last US Troops Leave Iraq, Bush Deserves Credit for Victory"

How come no one in the media ever reminds McCain of his 2010 Tweet where he declared withdrawal of Troops in Iraq was a "Victory" whenever McCain starts foaming at the mouth complaining that President Obama brought the "last US troops" home from Iraq? I think John McCain is a liar. I've heard some people say he's just insane, but I think he both a liar and insane.

ISIS Leads John McCain to Reverse on Illegal Immigration Urgency

After urging national Republicans not to make illegal immigration an issue in the midterms, Sen. John McCain on Wednesday warned that ISIS is trying to exploit the porous U.S.-Mexico border to carry out terrorists attacks on American soil. Appearing on Fox News with Sean Hannity after Obama's foreign policy address to the nation on ISIS, McCain, the Gang of Eight member who has been one of the most prominent advocates of comprehensive amnesty legislation, said that ISIS terrorists are encouraging members to sneak into America through the southern border.
