Cruz said, “We should not permit them to return to America.” Those joining a violent group would automatically lose all of their rights as Americans citizens and are to be labeled traitors. Maybe so, or maybe not, but the constitution speaks to the serious nature of convicting an American citizen of treason.

For those who believe in marijuana and cannabis freedom, the future has never been brighter. Right now there is an awakening to the benefits of cannabis for medicinal purposes, specifically something called CBD oil. But is the new CBD craze being manipulated by media and politicians? If it weren’t we wouldn’t need to do a show about it.
The first step toward truth is to be informed.
Take Action: View the "Activate" Plan at the end of the story
I try to listen (or at least I did) to Larry Kudlow's weekly radio show.
Kudlow usually espouses the principles of free market capitalism.
But this past weekend he completely crapped the bed on his show.
All he could talk about was how we should send in our military over there to fight the ISIS threat which he claims "will be coming here next."
He sounded like a posterboy for the GOP war-mongers.
The 2nd thing he said which pissed me off was that he slammed gold and goldbugs (like us I suppose).

Ron Paul and Rand Paul agree on a lot, but they don’t agree on what the U.S. should do about the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria.
Ron Paul, the former Republican congressman from Texas, tells U.S. News he would “definitely not” vote to give President Barack Obama authority to wage war against the jihadi militants.
Fighting the group, he says, "will just hurt us and it will end when we go bankrupt.”
Rand Paul, the Kentucky senator and possible 2016 Republican presidential candidate, held a non-interventionist stance for much of the Syrian Civil War, but told Fox News Monday he would vote to bless Obama's use of force after the group beheaded two American journalists.

“I tell you, freedom and human rights in America are doomed. The U.S. government will lead the American people in — and the West in general — into an unbearable hell and a choking life.”—Osama bin Laden (October 2001), as reported by CNN
What a strange and harrowing road we’ve walked since September 11, 2001, littered with the debris of our once-vaunted liberties. We have gone from a nation that took great pride in being a model of a representative democracy to being a model of how to persuade a freedom-loving people to march in lockstep with a police state.
What began with the passage of the USA Patriot Act in October 2001 has snowballed into the eradication of every vital safeguard against government overreach, corruption and abuse. Since then, we have been terrorized, traumatized, and tricked into a semi-permanent state of compliance. The bogeyman’s names and faces change over time—Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein and now ISIS—but the end result remains the same: our unquestioning acquiescence to anything the government wants to do in exchange for the phantom promise of safety and security.
Ironically, just a short week after the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we find ourselves commemorating the 227th anniversary of the ratification of our Constitution. Yet while there is much to mourn about the loss of our freedoms in the years since 9/11, there has been little to celebrate.
This seems like a promising approach!
"We live in a country where blood flows because of you," yelled one protester, according to Reuters.

The Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur rarely has kind words for Republicans, but on Monday he said he would be willing to bet money that Rand Paul would beat Hillary Clinton and win the presidency in 2016.
Uygur credited Paul as a “voice of reason” on fighting ISIS, in contrast to Clinton’s hawkishness. He agreed that “our invasion of Iraq in the first place and all of the other bombings we’ve done in the Middle East… has in fact led to the rise of ISIS.”
So I am having trouble finding a video that shows the execution. I actually avoided watching the videos because I didn't think I would have the stomach for it, which the most cynical part of my brain tells me that if this was less than genuine, people would count on that very fact.
However, I was told by my brother that he had real questions about whether or not these beheadings occurred because of the way they were edited. At that point I decided that I needed to grit my teeth and watch these videos since they are being used as a pretext for war in the Middle East.
