Photos of McCain Yukking-it-Up with ISIS Rebels, Rand Paul Says It's WE Who Armed Them (VIDEO)

Your tax dollars -and international credibility- pissed-away on ISIS

Then there's this one ISIS just posted on their website:
McCain_and_Syrian_rebels-550x251
The guy in the mustache/striped shirt posting with McCain is
General Salim Idris, who was the Free Syrian Army's Chief of Staff
at the time. 
An East German-trained electronics professor, he was a general in the Syrian Army under Assad when he defected to the rebels in July 2012. Idris was thought by McCain to represent the moderate elements of Syria's armed opposition, who subscribed to the pro-democracy Proclamation of Principles.
But ISIS kicked him -and other 'moderates'- out and went on the savage offensive we all now are witnessing.
The ISIS claims that the men on that photo fight with them in Iraq now...
And while I usually give little merit the isolationist foreign policy musings of Rand Paul -and even less the old man- he had a pretty good point on CNN Sunday morning:

It wouldn’t be the first time he played the role of lead GOP cheerleader for Obama to arm “somebody”.

McCain is out of control. John McCain Went To Ukraine And Stood On Stage With A Man Accused Of Being An Anti-Semitic Neo-Nazi.

You don’t need to disrespect something useful like rocks. That wasn’t a fair comparison.

I don’t agree with McCain on arming the Syrian rebels, but Paul’s argument could be applied to our effort during WWII in arming and supplying the Soviets, who turned around and helped kill 100K Americans by instigating, arming and supplying North Korea and North Vietnam, in addition to sending combat pilots to kill US flyers. Ultimately, like his dad, Paul is a retard on foreign policy against whom McCain looks like a sage.

OR maybe the AZ electorate is dumber than a box of rocks. If they can be taken in so easily by him what other explanation could there be?

Anyone who is not an Obama worshiper knows that it was the United States that armed ISIS rebels[ and are still doing it, by the way]. That was what cost Ambassador Stevens his life. The other Americans that were there? Well, they just happened to be at the wrong place and at the wrong time for them. In the eyes of Hillary and Obama, their lives had no value anyway. they were mere peasants, useful only to the extent it furthered their agenda and quest for power. Every son of a bitch that voted for and worships Obama and Hillary has the blood of both Ambassador Stevens and the other Americans who gave their lives there on their heads. I deliberately used the term, “gave their lives” in the place of killed because I believe they could have escaped, but chose not to in order to defend Ambassador Stevens. They had honor, integrity, principles, and courage. The Obama and Hillary worshipers lack each of the forementioned. Each time you look at an Obama voter or someone with a “It is time for Hillary” bumpersticker, see if you can see the blood of those brave Americans on their heads.

Forgetting for a moment the number of Allied lives saved by helping the Soviets fight the Nazis, whats your point?

How does this in any way compare to sending arms and training Muslim extremists in the middle east?

All very true, but Hillary is not the problem. The MSM is. NOTHING will change unless the MSM is shamed into telling the American people the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help them God.

Rand Slams Congress for Funding Egypt's Generals: 'How Does Your Conscience Feel Now?'
Sen. Rand Paul is hammering his fellow senators for keeping billions in financial aid flowing to Egypt's military -- even as Cairo's security forces massacre anti-government activists. [by "anti-government activists" is meant church-burning Christian-murdering jihadists]

Rand Paul On Shutdown: "Even Though It Appeared I Was Participating In It, It Was A Dumb Idea"
I said throughout the whole battle that shutting down the government was a dumb idea. Even though it did appear as if I was participating in it, I said it was a dumb idea. And the reason I voted for it, though, is that it's a conundrum. Here's the conundrum. We have a $17 trillion debt and people at home tell me you can't give the president a blank check. We just can't keep raising the debt ceiling without conditions. So unconditionally raising the debt ceiling, nobody at home wants me to vote for that and I can't vote for that. But the conundrum is if I don't we do approach these deadlines. So there is an impasse. In 2011, though, we had this impasse and the president did negotiate. We got the sequester. If we were to extend the sequester from discretionary spending to all the entitlements we would actually fix our problem within a few years.

Rand Paul: Time for GOP to soften war stance
...by softening its edge on some volatile social issues and altering its image as the party always seemingly "eager to go to war... We do need to expand the party and grow the party and that does mean that we don't always all agree on every issue" ... the party needs to become more welcoming to individuals who disagree with basic Republican doctrine on emotional social issues such as gay marriage... "We're going to have to be a little hands off on some of these issues ... and get people into the party," Paul said.

Rand Paul's immigration speech
...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.

Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.

Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.

Let's start that conversation by acknowledging we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.

If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...

This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.

Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.

Rand Paul calls on conservatives to embrace immigration reform
Latinos, should be a natural constituency for the party, Paul argued, but "Republicans have pushed them away with harsh rhetoric over immigration." ...he would create a bipartisan panel to determine how many visas should be granted for workers already in the United States and those who might follow... [and the buried lead] "Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers...
