Isolationist policies make the threat of terrorism even greater

As a veteran, and as a governor who has supported Texas National Guard deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, I can understand the emotions behind isolationism. Many people are tired of war, and the urge to pull back is a natural, human reaction. Unfortunately, we live in a world where isolationist policies would only endanger our national security even further.
That’s why it’s disheartening to hear fellow Republicans, such as Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), suggest that our nation should ignore what’s happening in Iraq. The main problem with this argument is that it means ignoring the profound threat that the group now calling itself the Islamic State poses to the United States and the world.

License, registration—and your cash.
A deputy for the Humboldt County’s Sheriff Office in rural Nevada has been accused of confiscating over $60,000 from drivers who were never charged with a crime. These cash seizures are now the subject of two federal lawsuits and are the latest to spotlight a little-known police practice called civil forfeiture.
Quotes by John Zogby about Frontrunner Rand Paul:
"This is the first time a GOP candidate has reached 20% in a crowded field and the first time a Zogby poll has shown someone emerging a bit from the pack."
"Rand Paul appears to do well among all sub-groups, notably men, voters 30-64 years olds, self-identified Republicans, independents, and conservatives, and moderates. He also leads among Protestants and Born Again/Evangelical GOP voters."

A friend of mine's brother was convicted of a felony for growing marijuana plants in his college dorm. Thirty years later he still can't vote and his felony record prevents him from getting a good job.
Because of his story and others like it, I introduced bipartisan legislation to restore federal voting rights for non-violent offenders upon release from prison.

MCALLEN, Texas—Illegal aliens are being allowed to fly on commercial airliners without valid identification, according to the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC). “The aliens who are getting released on their own recognizance are being allowed to board and travel commercial airliners by simply showing their Notice to Appear forms,” NBPC’s Local 2455 Spokesman, Hector Garza, told Breitbart Texas.

On Tuesday, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) released a proposal for a wide-ranging criminal justice reform bill — authored with Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ). The response focused as much on the coauthors as it did on the bill, with commentators marveling at the bipartisan "bromance" between the two men.
First Lady Of Guatemala: Illegal Immigrants NOT Refugees Escaping Violence
Entering U.S. to be united with families, not escape conflict as U.N. insists

Rosa Leal de Pérez, the first lady of Guatemala, believes the influx of illegal immigrant children into the United States has nothing to do with violence.
Grayson’s letter to Clapper is concise and simple. He wrote, “The Intercept reported that agencies under your purview spied on five Muslim-Americans: Faisal Gill, Asim Ghafoor, Hooshang Amirahmadi, Agha Saeed, and Nihad Awad.”
“Did the intelligence community spy on these five people? If so, why?” Grayson asked.
It would appear that Grayson is the first member of Congress to send a letter demanding more information on why these five individuals were targeted.
Reid, who Tuesday stated he would allow amendments, subsequently backpedaled and “filled the tree” on the bill, a parliamentary procedure in which he refused all amendment branches to the trunk of the act itself. Since the bill was subject to a pending anti-filibuster vote in cloture, it needed three-fifths of the full Senate (60 votes) to pass, and sufficient support was not available.
How in the world does targeting a nuclear reactor anywhere in the Middle East help anyone?
The terrorist group Hamas claimed late Wednesday that it attempted to target Israel's nuclear reactor in the desert town of Dimona by firing three long-range M-75 rockets at the facility. One of the rockets was destroyed in mid-flight by Israel's Iron Dome system, and two fell harmlessly in the rocky Negev. However, merely by targeting the nuclear facility, Hamas has committed nuclear terrorism, according to United Nations treaties.
I came across this on Fox news this morning. I decided to post it because it is a bit concerning.
Not because they want 100 yr olds going into battle (I can see the market for all-terrain walkers soaring) but because they making preparations for another draft. Or at least that's the way it seems to me. Does anyone have another explanation of this besides they are gearing up to draft people for war?

A bill is now making it's way through the gridlock of Congress courtesy of Rep. Matt Salmon that will prohibit funds for being used for the Institute of Peace. What is the Institute of Peace, you ask? Well, I'll tell you.
