Did Senator John McCain, a leading advocate of arming Syria’s Islamist revolutionaries, meet with members or allies of the Islamic State in al-Sham [the Levant] (ISIS) during his trip to Syria on May 27 of last year?
It has long been customary to divide the Republican Party into three “camps”: big business or “Wall Street” Republicans, the religious right and neoconservatives or “national security” Republicans. The third group, it must be admitted, somewhat unsteadily combines neoconservatives proper (such as William Kristol) with old-fashioned defense hawks (such as Donald Rumsfeld), but perhaps this is the Republican “big tent” we keep hearing about.
Another odd solicitation to purchase by the US. government in the month of May. According the FedBizOpp.gov, (A known website for federal procurement opportunities is Federal Business Opportunities. This site has government contract opportunities greater than $25,000) U.S. Department of Agriculture ((USDA) is seeking to purchase sub-machine guns .40 Cal S&W, night sights and other firearm related equipment. Is the FDA going to war with the killer tomato? Or maybe they are doing special operations in the GMO cornfields?

Sen. Paul says Gen. Clapper lied to Congress, the nation under oath; Rep. King says it was an innocent mistake
Under the (literally) crumbling dome of the Congress Building in Washington, D.C., the question/revelation of spying on Americans by the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) is producing deep, and some would say revealing division within both ruling parties.
The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) has issued a notice of proposed rulemaking which if approved, would completely change the criteria for the establishment of National Firearms Act (NFA) trusts by individuals and corporations. It would require any individual using a trust to be photographed, fingerprinted and most egregiously, obtain the approval by signature of their local chief law enforcement officer (CLEO).
"If there were a way to verify that all car passengers were wearing seatbelts, automakers might be able to remove some structural steel, Strickland said. That would help the industry meet requirements to boost fuel economy, among other things, he said.
Strickland proposed the trade-off yesterday to get the technology into the U.S. fleet faster than by regulation. The seatbelt devices were one of three promising technologies NHTSA wants to induce automakers to adopt as soon as possible to save the most lives."
The challenge to the NSA’s domestic surveillance program filed with the Supreme Court by the Electronic Privacy Information Center ended Monday, with the court refusing to consider the challenge at all. EPIC had filed the challenge directly with the Supreme Court rather than going through the lower courts.
