    MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. - Days before the primary in military-heavy South Carolina, Ted Cruz came to a warship here to deliver a detailed plan to rebuild America's military after what he called "years of neglect" under President Barack Obama."More tooth, less tail – that will be our guiding philosophy," Cruz declared.In a sign of the speech's seriousness and importance, Cruz, who prefers to speak extemporaneously, stood at a lectern in a blue suit and tie and spoke from notes, with American flags and war planes behind him, aboard the U.S.S. Yorktown.For much of the 2016 race, Cruz has sought a...
  • What does cheap foreign labor cost? Ask France. [FReepathon thread XLVIII]

    11/17/2015 6:46:00 AM PST · by Jim Robinson · 196 replies
    France imported cheap foreign labor (Muslim in this case) for decades and didn't care too much about the culture clash. Then the Muslims did what they've always done for 1400 years in the middle east, in Africa, Asia Minor, Asia, Europe, etc.: Infiltrate, immigrate, increase in numbers, make demands, activate politically, implement Sharia law, take over militarily and or via violence and terrorism. France has now lost their sovereignty, lost their culture, lost their religion, lost their freedom. If they don't wake up and kick out the Muslims soon, they're going to lose their nation and their heads. Islam is...

    Ann Coulter took to Twitter on Friday night to respond to the Paris terror attacks, saying that “Donald Trump was elected president tonight.” The conservative commentator tweeted a series of reactions to the attacks that left more than 120 dead, calling for “no more Muslim immigration.” She also targeted recent U.S. college student protests, as well as American gun and immigration laws and proposals. Coulter ended her string of Tweets with: “They can wait if they like until next November for the actual balloting, but Donald Trump was elected president tonight.”

    Should Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina win the Oval Office, she wouldnt be making any calls to her counterpart in Russia. I wouldnt speak to Vladmir Putin, Fiorina said. She would, however, rebuild a missile defense program in Poland and conduct military exercises in the Baltic States. I would guarantee you that after four or five or six months of that kind of behavior, Vladmir Putin will speak differently with the United States of America, she said. Its how people behave. Hes a bully. Fiorina, the only woman seeking the GOP nomination, is the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard. She ran...
  • Carly Fiorina Says Degree In Medieval History Will Help Her Defeat Isis

    For over three decades, Carly Fiorina's bachelor's degree from Stanford University in medieval history and philosophy has had little real-world application. But as she mounts a presidential bid, the Republican candidate says her degree is finally of use as she considers how she would deal with ISIS as commander-in-chief. "Finally my degree in medieval history and philosophy has come in handy," Fiorina said Sunday night, "because what ISIS wants to do is drive us back to the Middle Ages, literally." Fiorina was responding to a question from a member of the military at a town hall in Windham, New Hampshire,...

    Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina may not be a liberal, but she certainly appears to be a fan of the liberal arts. The 2016 contender said Monday that her college degree in medieval history made her uniquely qualified to combat ISIS and other terrorist groups. My degree in medieval history and philosophy has come in handy, Fiorina said at a town hall in Windham, N.H., because what ISIS wants to do is drive us back to the Middle Ages, literally.

    MOSCOW -- Russian jets carried out a second day of strikes in Syria Thursday, as a senior U.S. politician and activists claimed the targets included rebels backed by the United States. "I can absolutely confirm to you that they were strikes against our Free Syrian Army recruits that have been armed and trained by the CIA, because we have communications with people there," Republican Sen. John McCain, who is head of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said in an interview with CNN, according to the Reuters news agency.

    In an interview with Fox News on Wednesday, Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina chastised the Obama administration, calling its response, or lack thereof, to Russian aggression in Syria, weak and willfully nave. We must be prepared to use force, declared Fiorina in a hawkish response to Russian airstrikes in the central city of Homs this week that have transformed the geopolitical calculus in the region. U.S. Pentagon officials insist that the Russian aerial assault is targeting primarily non-ISIS combatants, including the American-backed moderate Syrian opposition. I can absolutely confirm to you that they were strikes against our Free Syrian Army...

    Amid conflicting reports about Moscow targeting U.S.-alllied groups in Syria, GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina said late Wednesday that she backs military readiness against Russian forces. I believe we must tell the Russians that we will conduct [and] we will secure a no-fly zone around anti-Assad rebel forces that were supporting, she said on Fox Newss "Hannity." Does that mean we might use force against Russian jets? host Sean Hannity then asked. Well, hopefully not, Fiorina responded. "Hopefully, if we are signaling clearly to the Russians are intention, it will not come to that. But if it does come to...

    Governor Sarah Palin brought focus onto the military veterans who have served this nation in a powerful speech delivered at this years CPAC conference. Palin focused on the sacrifice veterans and their families have given to this country, and how our D.C. politicians and the current Obama administration have failed their service. It was a well received emotional speech that resonated strongly with the audience. After her remarks, Palin took a few questions from the event moderator. Palin was introduced by Medal Of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer to a packed audience at the Gaylord Resort in National Harbor, Maryland.

    On Monday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin urged Americans to light a candle and put it in their windows this Christmas eve to show solidarity with Cubans who are still fighting for their freedom and human rights. Palin accused under President Barack Obama of emboldening the oppressive Castro regime with his announcement last week that the two countries will begin to ease its relations. I am so ashamed with what the Obama administration has done to Cuban people. I do not support it, Palin, speaking in front of a lit candle, says in a video that will be seen...

    Military Superiority: By the end of the year, China could deploy an anti-ship missile capable of hitting U.S. aircraft carriers at long range. The naval dominance that American foreign policy depended on may be at an end. When the naval planners of Imperial Japan were laying out the attack on Pearl Harbor, the major question on their mind was where are the American carriers? In the end, their failure to find them doomed Imperial Japan to defeat. Since World War II, every president alerted to a crisis has asked the same question where are the carriers? These floating...

    The American Spectator ^ | July 9, 2010 | Quin Hillyer
    To her great credit, Sarah Palin is absolutely right on target in her insistence on maintaining a strong defense. Yesterday's Washington Post featured a little report about how Palin is "waging a battle inside the "tea party" movement to exempt defense spending from the group's small-government, anti-deficit fervor." Good for her. The GOP Class of 1994 in Congress had too many members who did the same thing Palin warns against: letting their admirable enthusiasm for lower deficits/balanced budgets get in the way of a commitment to putting national defense first. Palin rightly warns against abandoning the central part of the...

    One of the things thats starting to emerge on the Republican side of the political struggle is a world view that can be called the Palin Doctrine. Its remarkable that none of the other leading figures in the party has come to be associated with a particular foreign policy trajectory. Can one think, say, of a Pawlenty Doctrine or a Daniels Doctrine or a even a Perry or a Schwartzenegger or a Romney Doctrine? They each have their own bona fides, but developing the outlines of a coherent foreign policy view isnt one of them. Governor Palin, by contrast, has...

    10. Although Duncan Hunters name is nearly synonymous with the Border Fence on the US-Mexico border (at least the part of the REAL fence that is working), he should also be known for his stances on abolishing the anchor baby laws, beefing up the numbers of Border Patrol officers, scuttling all benefits to illegal aliens, snuffing out the notion of sanctuary cities, and, most importantly, standing firm on his position that illegal aliens must be deported. It is the same position he came to Congress with in 1980. It has not changed. When asked during his 2008 presidential primary run...

    To better understand Sen. Barack Obama, his speech before 200,000 Germans in Berlin is one good place to start. As we shall see, however, it does not leave one secure as to the senator's understanding of history, of America's role in the world, and what to do about evil, among other important issues. Obama: "At the height of the Cold War, my father decided, like so many others in the forgotten corners of the world, that his yearning -- his dream -- required the freedom and opportunity promised by the West." Promised by the West? Or promised by America? It...

    'The separation fence won't be a political border," declared prime minister Ariel Sharon in his 2004 Herzliya speech. Ehud Olmert has repeated this more than once. Recently, however, Defense Minister Ehud Barak has proposed not only treating the security barrier as a de-facto border, but also offering money to evacuate the Jews living on the eastern side of the fence. Barak's spiel is obvious: He aims to convince part of the public that he is a hawk, and the other part that he is the bona fide standard-bearer of the peace camp. And it isn't only Barak.

    Life in southern Israel is unbearable. Since last January, on average, 6.3 mortars and rockets have been fired from Gaza on southern Israel every day. As Deputy Defense Minister Matan Vilna'i warned the heads of the communities around Gaza last week, due to the improvements in the Palestinian arsenal since Israel vacated Gaza two years ago, the Palestinians now field missiles and rockets with extended ranges that place 130,000 Israelis under threat of missile attack. Wednesday, IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi made clear that if Israel wishes to secure its citizens there is only one thing it...

    Pakistan weighed up its chances of surviving a US military assault before joining the "war on terror" after the September 11, 2001 attacks, President Pervez Musharraf says in a new book. In the collection of memoirs, In the Line of Fire, General Musharraf relates how he was told by then-US secretary of state Colin Powell after the attacks, "you are either with us or against us". He says it was quickly obvious his decision was academic. "I war-gamed the United States as an adversary," General Musharraf wrote. "The question was: if we do not join them, can we confront them...

    Well, as it's turned out, it was hardly "another Vietnam," hardly a quagmire, and it looks like the Arab Street got the message that the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof that the Ango-Americans are back in the driver's seat again. Here's how the managing editor of the Arab News put it on the day the Iraqis pulled down the statue of Saddam: "America now rules the world, either directly or by proxy; and there is nothing anyone can do about it." It was the same from the editor of the Daily Star in Beirut, Ramy...
