In August, Sen. Scott took time from his busy schedule to honor the veterans of the Vietnam War, a tragic war that was lost by Democrat leaders who refused to pursue victory over Communism in Southeast Asia. More than 58,000 Americans were killed in this no-win war and thousands were wounded in a war that President Lyndon Johnson had no intention of winning. Johnson pursued a “containment policy” instead of a victory policy — the same sort of no-win policies being pursued by Obama in dealing with ISIS terrorist threats throughout the Middle East.

Whether we’re talking about President Barack Obama’s threats to take executive action on immigration, the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) blatant executive regulatory overreach, or Health and Human Services (HHS) cherry-picking which ObamaCare provisions to enforce and which to delay – this president and his administration have a very bad habit of ignoring the law and the Constitution.
Over the Labor Day weekend, Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ) appeared on Fox News to discuss the illegal immigration crisis and the national security crisis along our southern border with Mexico. There are signals coming from the White House that Obama is planning on granting amnesty to millions of illegals who have flooded into our country – but that he won’t make his move until after the mid-term election.
Huckabee notes that no Middle Eastern countries are sending troops to fight Islamist killers and no Western nations are jumping into the battle either. European nations don’t trust Obama to follow through on his empty threats and they don’t think they should sacrifice the lives of their own sons. If Middle Easterner leaders won’t get out of their palaces to defend their lands, why should we?
According to Gohmert, Obama always seems to side with Islamic terrorists against Muslim regimes that pose no threat to the United States. Gohmert points out that if Obama had bombed the Syrian government into oblivion last year, the Islamic State terrorists would have immediately taken control of Syria and would have been even more powerful than they are today.
Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) was on Fox News with Greta van Susteren last night to discuss the latest news on the ongoing IRS/Lois Lerner targeting scandal. Jordan has been a leader on the House Oversight And Government Reform Committee in trying to discover the truth about Lois Lerner’s systematic campaign against conservative and Christian non-profit organizations.
Lerner, who took the Fifth Amendment when brought before congressional committees, is at the center of a congressional investigation and an investigation by Judicial Watch.
I am opposed to the president’s immigration policy because I believe immigrants deserve better. The direct cause of the border crisis that Texas is now forced to address is the president’s 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. In 2011, before this policy was enacted without approval from Congress, roughly 6,000 unaccompanied children were apprehended at the border; in 2014, with the policy in effect, an estimated 90,000 children will cross the border, many of them smuggled by vicious criminals.
“The FBI director previously said…that there were people from terrorist countries who were assuming Hispanic names, and learning a few words of Spanish, and coming in,” Gohmert said. “The FBI director himself testified to that before Congress. So we know that this kind of thing has been going on–Governor Perry isn’t saying anything that’s new, it just takes a little while for the mainstream to catch up.”
Dan Sullivan, has served as a Lt. Colonel in the Marine Corps Reserves for the past 20 years. He also served as U.S. Assistant Secretary of State and as a director on the National Security Council staff under Condoleezza Rice when she was Secretary of State and National Security Advisor.
The Government Accounting Office (GAO) issued a report yesterday declaring that the Pentagon broke two laws when it participated in the trade of five top Taliban commanders for a U.S. Army deserter named Bowe Bergdahl. The report stated that the Pentagon had ignored language in a law that is “clear and unambiguous” about how prisoner exchanges are to be handled.
