A bill attempting to authorize the use of America's full military force against Iran is being introduced to Congress on Thursday by Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ), who is currently seeking a co-sponsor.
A third candidate stepped into the ring for the Republican nomination for Senate in South Carolina today.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., on what the international community needs to do to stop the situation in Syria from devolving into something even worse.
The terror attack at the Boston Marathon on April 15 is seared into our national conscience. Not since the tragic morning of September 11, 2001 has America experienced such a state of panic, confusion, and uncertainty about its domestic security. And while the casualties of the Boston terror attack fortunately were limited compared to what could have been, the repercussions of the bombing will have a profound affect on public policy in the United States, particularly as it regards law enforcement and national security policies.
"Barack Obama of 2007 would be right down here with me arguing against this drone strike program if he were in the Senate," Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., declared in the course of his 13-hour Senate "talking filibuster," which delayed a confirmation vote for now-CIA chief John Brennan.
Poor, poor John McCain and Lindsey Graham. Here they were discussing new tax hikes and amnesty with Barack Obama over a sumptuous dinner and that rakish scamp Rand Paul made it impossible for them to enjoy the fine cuisine.
Not since the eminently forgettable and now justly forgotten Louis A. Johnson was chosen to dismantle the country's military budget after the Second World War -- just in time to leave this country woefully unprepared for the Korean one -- has a nominee for secretary of defense represented so clear and present a danger to the national security.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., says he doesn't think the nominations of Chuck Hagel to Defense Secretary and John Brennan to CIA Director should move forward until the White House answers some pressing questions on the consulate attack in Benghazi, Libya.
In case you were not sure how Chuck Hagel felt about Israel after his "Jewish lobby" comment.
It is neither "racist" nor "sexist"to question U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice's role in the Benghazi scandal. It is, however, almost entirely beside the point.
The only thing worse than losing in politics is quitting after a loss since the vast and great American sport of politics never stops, and increasingly doesn't even pause for the holidays.
