    C’mon, did you see Vikings with Ragnar Lothbrock and the Alien shows? Even the WWII mini-series was all screwed up historically. I stopped taking History channel as a source of history a long time ago.

    Just enjoy it for what it is— a show! But it is refreshing that the Texans are depicted, generally, in a positive light. With a Hollywood production, I’d have expected the story would be about racist whites killing and raping innocent Mexicans.

    Yeah, the character Brendan Fraser plays called him a “Lorka,” an Indian myth of a person who dies without honour and rises up to avenge his fallen comrades.

    Liotta ain’t supernatural of course, but he’s definitely filled with hate and rage. Did you see that one scene where he witnesses the massacre at Goliad, and his lip is shaking and a tear falls down his cheek? Thought that was pretty good. Liotta is probably not going to stop till someone shoots him.

    I still haven’t forgiven this nasty little prick for his behavior during the campaign last time. Not only was he an infantile— I hated how shallow he was, how absolutely devoid of ideas, how he confused standing in front of banners with the words “courageous” with actually being courageous— but he was entirely destructive to everyone else in that run.

    The scumbag had no real ideas of his own, so he sat there and just tore down every one elses ideas. Then the lying prick, he even promised at one point to stop tearing down “conservatives,” but, of course, I’m still seeing his nasty bloody ads.

    This guy just enters into the race and nukes everybody else— guaranteed! And this freak has no chance of actually winning. He’s unelectable. Always has been. Always will be. Who the heck wants a momma’s boy, sweater vest wearing poindexter like this wannabe?

    There was some pretty brutal scenes of the Karankawas slaughtering men and women, and then some good old classic cowboys vs. indians ensued. Santa Anna is depicted as brutal and as a terrible villain, as are many of his soldiers. But there are also Mexicans fighting on the side of the Texans as well.

    I also liked how the Commanches were depicted. Not savage killers like the Karankawas, but damn scary to face in a fight.

    The Texas are not demonized, but all the main characters are noble or at least likable in some way. I even like Brendon Fraser’s character. He plays a bad a** Texas Ranger who was kidnapped as a baby by Indians and raised as one of them. He’s not a historical character, but the characters that are historical are all great as well.

    ‘A’ part? I cite the ‘law’ as a WHOLE; as in WHOLLY unconstitutional. Take your pick on any number of OTHERS as well, it falls within the same.

    And I'm sure you have a reasonable, logical legal argument that will demonstrate that, eh?

    ‘Violate Federal Law’. What DOESN’T these days??

    When I was listening to that retard Rand Paul a little bit in clips I've seen on the senate floor, I had noticed that he wasn't talking about what the law actually does, but how the government might violate it. It was a whole bunch of "the government always oversteps! Once it receives power it takes more!" blah blah blah.

    But then that got me thinking: If the government has to violate the law in order to abuse it, then what's special about the law? Can't they violate the law even without the Patriot Act?

    So, you believe gobbling up all communication, having biz/corp. install NSA ‘back-doors’/etc. ISN’T an infraction again unreasonable search and seizures? I ain’t seen a warrant yet

    Can you please point to any part of the Patriot Act that authorizes stuff like that? The Patriot act, explicitly, is to target only those who "violate federal law" and are a threat to national security. Ordinary folks can't be targeted under it, not even political groups. If they are, it's a violation of the law. Secondly, warrants are indeed issued for those who are American citizens. These are delayed warrants-- you probably won't know one is issued against you till later-- but that's been standard for drug offenses, and organized crime for a long time.

    So, exactly what part of the Patriot Act do y'all have a problem with? Can you cite a part?

    Russia can’t “return” anywhere. Even before Communism, the Russkies were committing mass murder against folks. Violence and totalitarianism run deep in their veins! They even have fantasies that Joseph Stalin was a late convert to the Russian Orthodox Church, and that he was a hero in his life time who only murdered “5th columnists.” Russia is a degenerate nation, an outright enemy of God, a brutish wildman among more civilized nations.

    Case in point, these “Christians” in Russia, and also those invading Ukraine, are actively persecuting Catholics and Protestants because they aren’t Russian Orthodox. In Ukraine, in fact, they have kidnapped, tortured and executed pastors, taken over churches, targeted non-ROC Christian owned businesses and taken them over.

    What does Russia return to if it returns to its pre-Communist past?

    The answer: Just another form of barbarism which is its historical norm.

    People who idolize Putin and Russia as some kind of a moral utopia are idiots who probably know nothing about Russia or spoken with an average member of their degenerate population. Russia’s “moral crusade” is mostly directed outside to nationalists and right wing groups across the world, and not really something they do in their own country. It is part of Russia’s larger disinformation strategy to seduce the right wing in order to enable further Russian aggression against its neighbor. “Why should we oppose Russia’s invasion of Georgia, Ukraine, or the Baltics? Clearly he is a Christian nationalists just trying to protect his people from the globalists and homosexuals!”

    Russia, in fact, not only has one of the highest abortion rates in the world, not only has rampant homosexual rape and forced prostitution in the military, all winked at by the officers; but also is a major hub for the global sex trade. Women are routinely abducted or conned in Russia and forced into sex slavery, even transported all across the world to work in brothels. In fact, the entirety of Russia is run not as a government of law and order as we know it in the West, but as a giant Mafia state. Even simple things like a license to drive cannot be done in most cases but by bribery. Businesses are encouraged to break the law, and, when successful, are subject to looting from local mafia crime lords who are also the official law enforcement and justice system.

    Russia is not too far removed from Liberia or other African-states when we look at it from this angle. Even many Russians live in filthy soviet style apartment complexes, taking craps in the hallways, because most of the people there are unemployed and living off of government handouts.

    Could also be Iran bombing itself and not ISIS, though that is a possibility. We will see if ISIS takes credit. If not:

    1) Iran is run by radical Islamists and don’t care who they kill.
    2) Historically, their secret services were modeled on the KGB, and trained by the KGB. And the KGB are well known for fabricating “provocations.” Bombing their own people and blaming it on others, having people throw molotov cocktails in people’s faces just to increase class-warfare, etc. So why wouldn’t the Iranians give this a go?

    Whoops, thought I could get away without having to put the code in for paragraph breaks. Guess not:

    About the FSA:

    "The Free Syrian Army (Arabic: الجيش السوري الحر‎, al-Jaysh as-Sūrī al-Ḥurr, FSA) is a group of defected Syrian Armed Forces officers and soldiers,[15][16] founded during the Syrian Civil War on 29 July 2011[17] by five[16] or seven defected Syrian officers.[17][18] The group defined "all [Syrian] security forces attacking civilians" as their enemies,[17][18] and said its goal to be "to bring down the system"[17] or "to bring this regime down".[16]

    On 23 September 2011, the Free Syrian Army merged with the Free Officers Movement (Arabic: حركة الضباط الأحرار‎, Ḥarakat aḑ-Ḑubbāṭ al-Aḥrār); Western observers like The Wall Street Journal considered the FSA since then the main military defectors group.[19][20][21] 90% of the FSA consists of Sunni Muslims,[22] but a small minority are (Shia) Alawites[22] and some Druze fought in FSA units. About 15% of FSA units are Kurds.[23] some FSA units are led by Druze.[24] As for further ethnic minorities, a Palestinian rebel commander in the Yarmouk enclave in southern Damascus in 2012 considered his rebel brigade to be part of FSA.[25]

    The FSA coordinated with the Syrian National Council starting in December 2011,[26] and supported the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces after the coalition's November 2012 creation.[27] Between July 2012 and July 2013, ill-discipline and infighting weakened FSA, while jihadist groups entered northern Syria and became more effective than FSA.[28] In April 2013, the US promised $123 million aid to rebels, to be funneled through the then leader of the FSA, Salim Idriss.[29] Since February 2014, Abdul-Ilah al-Bashir is the appointed Chief of Staff and leader of the FSA.[2] A coalition of moderate Muslim rebel groups fighting under the Supreme Military Council of Syria, which includes the FSA, on 25 September 2014 allied with a predominantly Christian coalition called Syriac Military Council, to unite their fight against the Assad government and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).[8]

    At the outset of the civil war, the FSA operated throughout Syria, both in urban areas and in the countryside,[30] in the northwest (Idlib, Aleppo), the central region (Homs, Hama, Al-Rastan), the coast around Latakia, the south (Daraa and Houran), the east (Dayr al-Zawr, Abu Kamal), and the Damascus area, with their largest concentration of forces, nine battalions or more, in Homs, Hama and surrounding areas.[31][32] By November 2014, a growing coalition of 58 US-backed groups, the Southern Front of the Free Syrian Army, was gaining territory south of Damascus in southern Syria.[33][34] In addition to its stronghold in the south, the FSA is active in pockets of Aleppo,[35] takes part in the ongoing offensives in Idlib,[36] and is aligned with the YPG in the defence of and ongoing combat near Kobanî.[37]"

    About the photo:

    On May 27, 2013, McCain slipped across the Turkish border to spend a few hours in Syria with members of the Free Syrian Army. Mouaz Moustafa, executive director of the Syrian Emergency Task Force, who helped arrange the visit and was with McCain, said many soldiers were members or commanders of the Northern Storm brigade, which serves under the army’s Supreme Military Council. One man was Gen. Salim Idriss, who at the time was chief of staff of the Supreme Military Council.

    “These guys, the Northern Storm brigade, are bitter enemies of ISIS,” Moustafa said, in part because they were so effective. As a result of the photos of the fighters with McCain, ISIS declared that “everyone in this picture needs their head chopped off,” he said. “After the meeting, many of the Northern Storm were completely killed by ISIS.”

    In October, Reuters reported on an audio message from the Islamic State, which “accused the Northern Storm brigade of ‘opening a front’ against them in the Azaz area and of conspiring with ‘the American pig, John McCain’ to fight against the Islamists.”

    Moustafa said his own movements in the country were curtailed because of fears that guards at checkpoints would have copies of the photographs. “It is just ridiculous to me that a U.S. senator would pick this up,” Moustafa said.

    Greetings_Puny_Humans to Rockitz; Parley Baer; Shadow44; spokeshave; SoFloFreeper; Norm Lenhart; xzins; no-to-illegals; ...

    Whoever believes this is a goober. I took a look at the 7 page document that Zerohedge references, and there is nothing in there about the CIA allying with ISIS or depicting the rise of ISIS as strategic for the isolation of Syria. In fact, the document mentions the rise of AQI (a forerunner for ISIS) as being a “dire” consequence as the situation “deteriorates.”

    If any of you Truther goobers want to look at the document and show how it supports anything Zerohedge is saying, please quote it out for me:

    I also notice how this Zerohedge article claims that Al-Qaeda is run by the CIA. How the heck is this trash being posted in FR? Obama hysteria shouldn’t make us all 9/11 Truthers folks.

    By the way, notice that Judicial Watch itself isn’t characterizing the document the way Zerohedge is.

    This is from Russia where rampant gang rape occurs in the military, complete with brutal hazing and photographs and videos taken and put online of their homosexual and violent acts.

    The Russkies are just upset because they lost the Eurovision contest.

    You are evading the central issue: Blanket surveillance on every American citizen!

    Except that it's not true. The only surveillance that goes on "without a search warrant" is of foreign terrorists. American calls are not recorded, nor are records that are kept looked at unless by court order.

    I for one don't care if the U.S. government has on file all my phone calls. Verizon Wireless already does that. I can look up all my calls online.

    "* The delayed notification in Sec. 213 was already the law in cases involving organized crime, narcotics and pornography. It makes common sense because it would be absurd to inform a suspected mobster or a terrorist during the course of an investigation that a listening device had been installed in his home or office.

    * Sec. 215 - the much-feared "assault against librarians" - has not been used even once. Nonetheless, we strongly believe this is a weapon that must remain in the prosecutor's arsenal. There could well be cases, for instance, when it would be critical to learn whether a suspected terrorist is reading books on explosives or the structural design of office buildings, landmark sites, bridges or tunnels. It should also be noted that library records were instrumental in tracking down such murderers as the Zodiac killer and the Unabomber.

    * Sec. 218 merely gives federal agents authority to conduct surveillance of cell phones and the Internet to the same extent they can surveil rotary phones. It would be foolhardy to let terrorists use the technology of modern telecommunications without fear of being detected.

    The bottom line is that the criticisms by Gore and the other critics are shameful and irresponsible. Of course we gave our government added power in the aftermath of 9/11. These powers are essential to confront a new and deadly threat."

    Pre-9/11 ... Yes, back when the Constitution and Bill of Rights still held at least the illusion of being followed ...

    I wasn't aware collecting telephone information that is not viewed but by a court order is destroying the bill of rights. If you have a problem with some aspects of the Patriot Act and other bills, then fix them. You don't scrap the whole thing and forbid law enforcement the tools they need to keep tabs on terrorists. Terrorists are not protected by the Constitution.

    How. How is he a cultural Marxist? Pro gun, pro life. Pro freedom to worship. HOW IS HE A CULTURAL MARXIST?

    I direct you to SunkenCiv's post in this thread:

    http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3200117/posts

    Also consider:

    "Paul made pro-life activists curious when he said that Republicans should agree to disagree on social issues. Then, in an April interview, Paul says he doesn’t anticipate changing the laws on abortion and added that his belief that life begins at conception is a personal and religious one, not a scientific viewpoint.

    “The country is in the middle (and) we’re not changing any of the laws until the country is persuaded otherwise,” he says."

    http://www.lifenews.com/2015/05/19/rand-paul-makes-curious-abortion-comment-that-may-make-some-pro-life-voters-nervous/

    Then there's more. On gay marriage:

    "Paul's staffers say he believes the issue should be left to the states to decide.[43][44] He has said he thought that the Supreme Court's ruling in Windsor v. United States, which struck down the portion of the Defense of Marriage Act that defined marriage at a federal level (as between a man and a woman), was appropriate.[45]

    In April 2013, in an interview with the National Review, he said, "I'm an old-fashioned traditionalist. I believe in the historic and religious definition of marriage," and "That being said, I'm not for eliminating contracts between adults. I think there are ways to make the tax code more neutral, so it doesn't mention marriage. Then we don't have to redefine what marriage is; we just don't have marriage in the tax code."[46]

    Then this stuff in light of Ferguson and the Michael Brown fiasco:

    Police militarization[edit] In a 2014 op-ed in Time magazine, Paul criticized the increased militarization of law enforcement.[47] Paul noted: "When you couple this militarization of law enforcement with an erosion of civil liberties and due process that allows the police to become judge and jury—national security letters, no-knock searches, broad general warrants, pre-conviction forfeiture—we begin to have a very serious problem on our hands." Paul believes that the criminal justice system unjustly impacts African Americans, noting that "Anyone who thinks that race does not still, even if inadvertently, skew the application of criminal justice in this country is just not paying close enough attention." Paul believes the militarization of police has been caused by the US Federal Government through subsidies, equipment, and other incentives as well as the drug war by its creation of a "culture of violence."[48] Both from here:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_positions_of_Rand_Paul#Same-sex_marriage

    Then there's drug legalization, pandering to Convicts, pandering to the race baiters, and so on and so forth.

    Rand Paul is many things, many I do not like. Marxist is not one of them.

    He is a cultural Marxist, not an economic one, though he is as ideological as any Marxist.
