| Political Talk|| Arabs Release Pictures Of Pilots Who Are Bombing ISIS - trackfan on 9/25/14 at 7:06 pm|
Included in the group of pilots whose pictures have been released are a woman and a Saudi prince. I wouldn't be surprised if Obama insisted on this in order to deny the Arabs plausible deniability and to prevent the war from being characterized as a crusade on the Arab street.
| Political Talk|| Jordanians Afraid Of Blowback Now That It Has Joined Obama's Anti-ISIS Coalition - trackfan on 9/24/14 at 3:03 pm|
After seeing what happened in Syria and Iraq, I can see why they might be afraid. I also heard a few days ago that the Turks were also afraid that if the joined the fighting against ISIS, bombs would start going off in Istanbul and Ankara.

I guess he's not kidding around when he talks about expanding the GOP base.
[quote]Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) told the San Francisco Chronicle over the weekend that he "is in the process" of opening an office in the Bay Area.
Unorthodox? Yes. Unexpected? No.

This thread seems like it ought to be right up Political Talk's wheelhouse.

It appeared as though Mark Fuller was going to fly below radar without ever paying the price for beating the crap out of his wife, but then the Ray Rice video surfaced, which prompted every politician under the sun to go out and prove his/her anti-domestic violence bona fides.
| Political Talk|| New Al Qaeda Branch Attacks Wrong Ship - trackfan on 9/14/14 at 7:24 am|
One thing we should be grateful for is that apparently Al Qaeda wasted their best and brightest on 9/11/01, because ever since then they've tried to attack us with incompetent nincompoops - the shoe bomber, the underwear bomber, the Time Square bomber (who couldn't make gasoline explode), etc. This ...

Goodell must be really desperate because it appears that the strategy that he's going to use to save his job is to accuse Ray Rice of lying when he met with him. Surely Goodell must know that not only does he have to discredit Rice, but he must also discredit everybody else who was in that room who ...
| Political Talk|| Germany Bans ISIS Propaganda And Symbols In Order To Stop Recruitment - trackfan on 9/12/14 at 10:01 am|
Of course Germany has no 1st Amendment as we know it, so it can get away with passing hate speech laws. Many U.S. extremist organizations would be banned in Germany, and Holocaust denial is a felony that will land you in prison. Personally, I think these type of laws are unnecessary since we already...

| Political Talk|| Analysts Say We Will Have To Coordinate With Assad To Go After ISIS - trackfan on 9/4/14 at 10:45 am|
It seems that one of the reasons that Obama is so reluctant to go after ISIS is because it doesn't wnat to help Assad, but ultumately he will have to pick his poison. Would Obama rather help Assad or turn a blind eye to ISIS, letting them run wild and possibly allowing them to overrun some allies in...

This guy must think we're idiots. The Saudis created Frankenstein's monster that is ISIS, and now they want us to waste American blood and treasure to put it down.

I understand the point he's trying to get across, but unfortunately, Rand's enemies will see to it that he's forced to weigh in on his Dad's comments, and you can't afford to do too much nuance when you're running for President.
