Sen. Rand Paul has voiced support for airstrikes, but voted against arming Syrian rebels
ALEXANDRIA, Virginia (CNN) —Sen. Rand Paul said this week that he would vote in favor of going to war with ISIS, but his father, former Rep. Ron Paul, made it clear Friday night that he sharply opposes further U.S. involvement in the Mideast region.
Speaking at a libertarian-leaning conference, Ron Paul slammed the "bipartisan support" among congressional lawmakers for "rubber-stamping what President Obama wants" in the fight against the militant group.
More broadly, he suggested that Senate Republicans aren't that different from their Democratic counterparts.
Why No US Sanctions Against State Sponsors of ISIS: Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey?
Media organizations across the Western World have for years reported a flow of cash, weapons, equipment and fighters from America’s allies in the Persian Gulf as well as … NATO member Turkey, and into the conflict raging within Syria’s borders. … no sanctions have as of yet been leveled against the overt sponsors of militancy and, in fact, terrorism in Syria. … state-sponsored terrorism … as a limited proxy war against Syria has transformed into an immense regional army with tens of thousands of paid soldiers requiring millions of dollars a day to operate across multiple borders and confounding the forces of Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon combined.
ISIS is State-Sponsored, So Why Aren’t These States Being Sanctioned? … ISIS or ISIL, are the benefactors of vast state-sponsorship and yet the West has not identified nor condemned these sponsors, let alone move toward leveling sanctions …
News articles by prominent British and American news outlets like the Daily Beast’s “America’s Allies Are Funding ISIS,” the London Telegraph’s “How ISIL is funded, trained and operating in Iraq and Syria,” and the Daily Mail’s “Cameron tells European leaders to ‘be good to their word’ and stop funding ISIS with ransom payments,” give explanations ranging from outright admissions that Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan, and Turkey are directly arming, funding, aiding and abetting ISIS, to … immense money laundering …
Systematic Hypocrisy Undermines Legitimacy
American and European hypocrisy so stark undermines the legitimacy … Beyond sanctions, the West’s presence across the Middle East has had a negative impact on public perception ….
After a two-week campaign, the Yale University Episcopal chaplain was forced to resign over a letter to the New York Times in which he explained that actions such as the recent Israeli war on Gaza were breeding anti-Semitism in Europe and elsewhere.
The Rev. Bruce Shipman, in a three-sentence letter that was published in the Times on August 26, responded to an Op-Ed article by scholar Deborah Lipstadt discussing European anti-Semitism. Shipman’s letter read, in its entirety, as follows:

Fewer than 50 days before an election that may give Republicans control of the Senate as well as the House, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Saturday skipped past those contests entirely to focus on one in which he may play a more central role — the 2016 presidential race.

SPECIAL GUEST: Dan Johnson, of People Against the NDAA
Mike notes with a bit of disappointment that Texas seems to be constantly outdone by the goings on in Pennsylvania. Lou reads from the PA Oath of Office and then segues into the Pennsylvania Constitution. He skewers state Senator Lisa Baker for removing her sole challenger, Green Party Candidate Jay Sweeney, from the 20th District race. The PA Constitution has once again been “Smuckered,” and by a legislator who has voiced support for the Voters’ Choice Act, no less.
Much like Al Qaeda, the Islamic State (ISIS) is made-in-the-USA, … the United States has a long and torrid history of backing terrorist groups … The CIA first aligned itself with extremist Islam during the Cold War era. …

Police in France found illegal drugs in a vehicle with Holy See diplomatic plates this past week. The car belonged to ninety-one-year-old retired Cardinal Jorge Maria Mejia. The cardinal’s private security team had allowed two men to take the car for service.
College students today have been afforded a choice, pay thousands of dollars for text books, or find the same text books available for illegal download on the internet for a fraction of the price. With the financial burden that is experienced by so many college students, it should not be the least bit surprising that students have been picking the latter choice more frequently.

Alleged ISIS Photo Controversy Engulfs Sen. John McCain
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and his aides swear the Syrian "rebels" he was pictured last year with weren’t ISIS members or supporters, and the mainstream media is by and large buying the 2008 GOP presidential nominee’s story.
But a closer look at the situation tells perhaps a different story than McCain’s office or the mainstream media have pushed.
A group of experts from the Russian Union of Engineers convened to analyze the situation. The situation was also analyzed using a computer simulation of the Su-25. The produced a new 15 page analysis report. The evidence is objectively presented and is laden with additional photos.
The conclusion is MH17 was shot down by air to air rocket-cannon fire.
