      Interventionism, ISIS, and Foreign Follies

      August 29, 2014 – Only weeks after the Obama Administration requested $500 million to give to Syrian rebels, the Islamic State has spread across northern Iraq. In this episode, Ron Paul shares his thoughts on ISIS (the Islamic State), Syria, and the failure of U.S. foreign intervention.

      Who remembers the good old days when a few Syrians took to the streets to protest the Assad Regime? Encouraged by western media and other entities, the protests escalated, as did the response from the Police. Would those protestors be happy with what they have now? Are the refugees who used to live in Syria happy with the outcome?

      Here's a flashback to the early days of the protests. Imagine that, the regime was trying to "exploit people’s fears of communal conflict between Syria’s different religions and sects". Such an irrational fear. Some silly people actually thought that it could all turn out badly.

      But not the European communists. Revolt comrades!

      The St. Louis Tea Party made a statement of support by going to Ferguson to provide some revenue to the hardest hit businesses. The media didn't cover it. Don Lemon did not interview them wearing a gas mask. No, the media is too busy with non-stop propaganda meant to divide, demonize, and distract.

      Did anyone hear about this? Even Senator Claire McCaskill attended, but apparently she doesn't rate coverage...
      Why St. Louis Tea Party Went to Ferguson To Shop
      By Bill Hennessy

      You can’t change the world in your living room.

      That’s why a small band of (mostly) white people from (mostly) West County drove to Ferguson (and Dellwood) to shop tonight.

      We targeted the small businesses that were hit hard by violence–violence committed (mostly) by out of town agitators, criminals, vandals, and hooligans.

      We drove to Ferguson to make two statements with our actions: 1) Ferguson is OUR community, and 2) Ferguson is open for business.

      I met Dellena. Dellena owns the 911 Beauty Salon on West Florissant in Dellwood. Her landlord got foreclosed on, which meant she lost her home, just before the riots. So she moved all her inventory from her house to the store. Then the riots happened, and they took her inventory.

      A Realist’s Guide to Grand Strategy
      By William Ruger • August 26, 2014

      Some of the most exciting work in IR [International Relations] has been pursued at MIT over the last few decades.
      Posen depicts the current grand strategy debate as pitted between two main rivals: liberal hegemony and restraint. Liberal hegemony is an activist grand strategy that aims to assertively maintain U.S. dominance and the “unipolar moment” in the service of liberalism and national security. Posen explains that it has been the reigning U.S. grand strategy since the end of the Cold War and remains the consensus view of the foreign-policy establishment of both major parties—of liberal internationalists and neoconservatives alike. Yet he believes it is “unnecessary, counterproductive, costly, and wasteful,” and ultimately “self-defeating.” Posen therefore spends the first half of the book explaining in detail what liberal hegemony is and why it so imperils America. In the book’s second, meatier half, he lays out his overarching restraint strategy and describes the specific military approach required to support it.

      The Final Chapter of Animal Farm has arrived

      August 26, 2014
      by Brian4Liberty

      (RPF) - Many people have pondered what has happened in American politics in recent years. The establishment Progressives, Socialists and Marxists have come to resemble crony corporatists. The US Chamber of Commerce and various big business interests work together with the left on Obamacare and on increasing immigration during a time of high unemployment and recession. The neo-conservatives and progressive interventionists have seemingly merged on foreign policy, with little difference remaining between Hillary Clinton and John McCain. What is going on?

      It may seem as though some unique and striking changes have been occurring, but that is not the ...

      It seems that at least one positive thing may come of the media created Ferguson circus. Obama is actually taking some action on the growing problem of police militarization. But will there be any follow-through? It's all empty rhetoric and report writing until real action is taken to stop the militarization of the Police, and to cut the associated wasteful Federal spending.

      And how could the discussion be complete without a few comments from neoconservative clown Peter King, who hates us for our freedom.

      Obama orders review of strategy of arming local police

      Obama Considering Granting 800K Guest-Worker Visas as 90% Believe American Workers Should Be Favored

      After meeting with a "bevy" of big-business groups, President Barack Obama is reportedly considering granting them up to 800,000 additional guest-worker visas via executive actions.

      According to the Associated Press, "one of the more popular requests among business and family groups is a change in the way green cards are counted," which would "essentially free up some 800,000 additional visas the first year." In addition, "other requests have included removing the requirement that some spouses of U.S. citizens return to their native country for at least three years before they can apply for U.S. residency, as well as extending work permits to the spouses of all temporary H1-B skilled workers." The Obama administration is also considering granting work permits for low-skilled industries as well.

      The Obama administration "has already increased the number of guest-worker permits by possibly 100,000 when it allowed the spouses of high-tech guest-workers who are applying for permanent residency to obtain permits."

      CNN’s Don Lemon had an embarrassing exchange Thursday night when conservative radio host Ben Ferguson called him out on live TV for apparently not knowing what an “automatic weapon” is.

      “The gun law says that you and I can’t just go out and buy an automatic weapon, so let’s deal with the facts here,” Ferguson said. “A semi-automatic weapon is a gun that you and I are allowed to own, and in different places they have different rules. But to imply that anyone can walk out and buy an automatic weapon is just not true, Don.”

      Joni Ernst is backed by Karl Rove and the US Chamber of Commerce.

      Apparently Sarah Palin and the Senate Conservatives Fund decided to further tarnish their reputations with endorsements too.
      The Republican nominee for a critical Senate seat in Iowa is breaking with Tea Party groups on reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank.

      Joni Ernst told CNBC in an interview that aired Wednesday she supports the bank, despite the stiff opposition to renewing its charter from groups on the right.
      While Ernst has garnered some Tea Party support, including endorsements from former Gov. Sarah Palin (R-Alaska) and the Senate Conservatives Fund, she was one of the rare candidates who managed to unite the often-warring factions within the GOP ahead of her June primary. She was endorsed by the Chamber of Commerce, American Crossroads and 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney, among others.

      Ernst's Democratic opponent in Iowa, Bruce Braley, supports Ex-Im as well. Polls have Braley and Ernst in a dead heat in the race to replace retiring Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa).

      Nothing surprising here. Outside agitation is standard procedure in so many riots and "revolutions". CNN, as an organization, has basically the same agenda with their hyped coverage.
      As the outraged community in Ferguson, Missouri, continues to protest the officer-involved shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown, radical communist revolutionaries from places like Chicago and New York City are seemingly infiltrating the local demonstrations and allegedly attempting to “incite” riots.

      A video uploaded on YouTube Tuesday shows Gregory Lee Johnson, a veteran member of the Revolutionary Community Party, riling up a crowd and seemingly discouraging them from listening to police’s advice to calm things down. Watch that video here:
