McCain: Get Ready for U.S. Troops on the Ground in Iraq and Syria

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) did not mince words during their joint- appearance on “60 Minutes” Sunday night in berating President Obama’s strategy for defeating ISIS and other terrorist threats in the Middle East.

In a bruising assessment of Obama’s State of the Union address last Tuesday, Boehner complained to CBS’s Scott Pelley, “The president didn’t spend but a few seconds talking about the terrorist threat that we as Americans face. This problem is growing all over the world, and the president is trying to act like it’s not there.

It’s going to be a threat to our homeland if we don’t address it in a bigger way,” he added, pointing to the recent terrorist attacks in Paris and elsewhere.

Chuck Baldwin: My Thoughts On The Movie "American Sniper."

My Thoughts On The Movie "American Sniper." - Via Facebook

As with millions of other Americans, I went to see the hugely popular Clint Eastwood-directed movie, "American Sniper." Here are some of my thoughts:

No one, at least not me, doubts the patriotism, courage, and sacrifice of our nation's military personnel--especially our combat forces. I certainly do not share Michael Moore's opinion that Chris Kyle (and our snipers in general) was a coward. Snipers have been effective in helping to wage America's wars since our War for Independence. In lawful combat, snipers are as needful as any other specialized fighting man.

My issue is not with Chris Kyle, or with any other American fighting man. My issue is with the justness of the war Chris Kyle was ordered to fight. Yes, I realize that we have an all-volunteer army; but let's be honest enough to admit that the vast majority of our young people joining the U.S. military sincerely believe that they are doing their patriotic duty by volunteering to conduct war against America's "enemies." They learn nothing else from family, school, movies and television, and church. The singular message they hear is that everything the U.S. military does is right and righteous and that every military engagement we fight is just and justified. I'm sure Chris Kyle was no different.

However, at the risk of sounding unpatriotic, after watching the real-life military exploits of Chris Kyle on the Big Screen, I left the theater extremely angry.

28 Pieces Of Street Art That Cleverly Interact With Their Surroundings

Street art is usually meant to disrupt its environment and to capture our attention, but the artists on this list practice a special technique that makes their artist even more eye-catching and playful – they tailor their art to its surroundings so that their (usually) 2D paintings seem to interact with their 3D surroundings.

Rand Paul reintroduces Audit the Fed bill

By Michael Flaherty

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican Senator Rand Paul, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, on Wednesday re-introduced a bill that would expose the Federal Reserve's monetary policy discussions and decisions to a congressional audit.

The Kentucky senator's move to re-introduce the bill, along with 30 co-sponsors, comes as Republican lawmakers and some Democrats increase their efforts to rein in the U.S. central bank and make it more transparent.

Why isn't Liberty as popular as the NFL?

Listen, like I said - I'm back Seattle and the Superbowl is a big deal. All these people dressed up in Seahawks blue and green. It is an exciting combination to look at. The 12 flags are everywhere, including one stuck to the side of the Columbia Tower, the tallest building in Seattle, and the huge one flying from the top of the Space Needle.

People are flying them from their cars, they go driving down the street, their 12 flags flapping in the wind.

Ben Swann and Marc Clair Discuss the Root of Police Militarization on the Lions of Liberty Podcast

In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, I welcome in award winning independent journalist, the host and producer of the Truth in Media Project, Ben Swann! Ben fills us in on what’s been happening in the past year with BenSwann.com and the Truth in Media Project, why he decided to focus on the issue of police militarization, and how events in Ferguson, MO caused him to rework the project. Ben and I then go on to discuss exactly what “police militarization” is, the detrimental effects the trend is having on individual liberty, and just what is at the root of it all. Be sure to stay tuned for mywrap-up rant, as I get just a little fired up in the Lions of Liberty Studios.

"I'm just here so I won't get fined."

The NFL threatened to fine Marshawn Lynch $500,000 if he didn't show up to the Superbowl media day so he did, but he really doesn't like talking to the media. So he answered every question the same way.

"I'm just here so I won't get fined."


http://youtu.be/G1kvwXsZtU8

This is basically the same reason millions of Americans have health insurance. So they don't get fined. But insurance hardly pays for anything. Hundreds in premiums, and still a $50 copay to see the doctor. And those mofos will still bankrupt you on a serious illness, even if you have "insurance."

8 Things Happy People Do But Rarely Talk About

Most of us like to think we are fairly happy people, but deep down we might not necessarily believe it or feel happy. When you look around and see people you grew up with making the most out of life while you keep going to a job you don’t like, repeating the same routine day in and day out, it is easy to feel less than grateful for the life you have. So what are the secrets of all those happy people? What are they doing to get the most out of life while the rest of us watch it pass by? -

In Ohio, Two Groups Have Very Different Proposals to Legalize Marijuana

Last week, we reported that a pro-legalization group in Ohio called Responsible Ohio had revealed the details of their campaign to pass a constitutional amendment to legalize recreational marijuana in the state. My analysis noted that the proposal is far from ideal due to the cartelized enterprise the amendment would create.

The proposal would create a seven-member Marijuana Control Commission, five marijuana testing facilities to check potency, and would only license ten legal growing locations. This boondoggle of an amendment would basically hand control for growing, selling, and distributing of marijuana over to the state government.

Luckily, there is another option for the good people of Ohio. A Political Action Committee (PAC) called Responsible Ohioans for Cannabis are pushing to get enough signatures in order to get their ballot initiative, End Ohio Cannabis Prohibition Act (EOCPA), onto the ballot for Ohioans to vote on it in 2016. The proposal presented by the Responsible Ohioans for Cannabis would allow for entrepreneurs, not government bureaucrats, to develop the quickly growing legal marijuana market.
