    Senator John McCain has written President Donald Trump to call out Russian attempts to 'dismember' Ukraine through new attacks, and warning that his new administration is being tested by President Vladimir Putin. He wrote after Russian artillery fired on Ukrainian positions, reigniting the conflict and killing as many as a dozen soldiers.

    (CNN)A bipartisan quartet of high-profile senators said Sunday that "recent reports of Russian interference in our election should alarm every American." The group -- two Republicans and two Democrats -- called for an investigation into American intelligence agencies' conclusion that Russian hacking was intended to help President-elect Donald Trump defeat Hillary Clinton.

    70 Nobel Laureates Endorse Hillary Clinton By ALAN RAPPEPORT OCT. 18, 2016 A group of the world’s leading experts in science, medicine and economics threw their support behind Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, endorsing the Democratic presidential candidate and arguing that her election is crucial for safeguarding freedom and preserving a constitutional government. The forceful endorsement came in a letter signed by 70 Nobel laureates hailing from a variety of fields and making the case that Mrs. Clinton is the candidate who best understands the importance of investing in science and technology at a time when the world faces challenges on...

    Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine said in an interview published Monday that, if elected, Hillary Clinton would quickly ask Congress for fresh legal authority to make war on the so-called Islamic State and other terrorist groups around the world. “Hillary has said that that’s something she wants to do very early in her administration,” the Virginia senator said. He made his remarks in an interview with “The Axe Files,” hosted by David Axelrod, a former top adviser to President Obama. Kaine said the former secretary of state will press lawmakers to rewrite the Sept. 14, 2001, Authorization for Use...

    This is all my opinion but this is the situation as I understand it now on the eve of an election that may spell the end of freedom as we know it. The meddling of Hillary in the Middle East has been disasterous in terms of lives and national prestige. The Left in this country made a big stink out of the loss of prestige over Iran-Contra back in the Eighties. Benghazi really makes Iran-Contra look like a walk in the park. The first thing to understand is that we were never supposed to know about Benghazi and what was...

    Conservative HQ ^ | 9/22/16 | George Rasley
    In the modern era, in most of America’s past presidential elections the two major political parties presented a fairly clear distinction on the great issue of war and peace: Republicans opposed America’s entry into World War I, and into World War II until we were attacked at Pearl Harbor; Democrats eventually led the opposition against the Vietnam War, and to the two Persian Gulf wars conducted by the two Republican presidents Bush. However, under Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton the idea that one party would be the “peace” party and one War Partyparty would be the “war” party has been...

    Abraham Lincoln told an 1864 audience that "the world has never had a good definition of the word 'liberty.'" Different people can define liberty in different, even contradictory ways, so that both sides in a conflict can claim to the mantle of liberty. That was exactly the situation in the Civil War: Slaveholders defined liberty in such a way as to make themselves the guardians of liberty... The South's liberty was the liberty to hold other people as chattel slaves. What the slaveholders called liberty, the North quite rightly called tyranny; namely, the systematic deprivation of the natural rights of...

    Two senior senators called on Sunday for Washington to nearly triple military force levels in Iraq to 10,000 and send an equal number of troops to Syria as part of a multinational ground force to counter Islamic State in both countries. Republicans John McCain and Lindsey Graham criticised Barack Obama's incremental Islamic State strategy, which relies on airstrikes and modest support to local ground forces in Iraq and Syria, and said the need for greater US involvement was underlined by this month's Paris attacks. "The only way you can destroy the caliphate is with a ground component,"said Graham, who is...

    The United States could 'take out' the Islamic State (IS) group with the deployment of 10,000 ground troops, US Senator John McCain has told FRANCE 24 in an exclusive interview. The Republican former presidential candidate said the IS group posed "a direct threat" to the United States that could be dealt a knock-out blow with a ground deployment in Syria. "Ground troops [means] about 10,000 Americans with a coalition of Arab countries, hopefully NATO countries, maybe even France, where we could go in on the ground with sufficient air support to take out ISIS," McCain said, using another acronym for...

    In responding to Russian thrusts in Ukraine and Syria, the West has relied on economic sanctions or conceded initiative to Moscow. Experience shows that direct measures-ones that target troublesome behavior-are more likely to be effective. In Ukraine and Syria, the West seems less sure of its aims and less committed to achieving them. In contrast, Russia appears to have clearer goals, cares more about outcomes, lies closer to the contested theater and acts with dispatch. This was also true when the USSR invaded Afghanistan in 1979. President Jimmy Carter responded by seeking to organize a boycott of the 1980 Summer...

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) has declared in a little-noticed TV interview that the United States should go to war against Russia, merely to block a flood of Muslim immigrants that can otherwise be stopped by a few European border guards. Rubio wants to create a “No Fly” zone over Syria to prevent the Syrian air force from bombing rebel and civilian targets. Any Russian sortie into the no-fly-zone would be “no different than any other adversary,” Rubio said Oct. 5 in a CNBC interview. His urge to shoot down Russian aircraft is a sharp break in the nation’s national security...

    Are Americans today war-weary? Sure. The Iraq and Afghanistan wars have been frustrating and tiring. Are Americans today unusually war-weary? No. They were wearier after the much larger and even more frustrating conflicts in Korea and Vietnam. And even though the two world wars of the last century had more satisfactory outcomes, their magnitude was such that they couldnÂ’t help but induce a significant sense of war-weariness. And history shows that they did. So American war-weariness isnÂ’t new. Using it as an excuse to avoid maintaining our defenses or shouldering our responsibilities isnÂ’t new, either. But that doesnÂ’t make it...

    Sen. John McCain blasted the "timidity" of the Obama administration’s sanctions on Russian officials Monday, saying that the White House needs a "fundamental reassessment" of the relationship between the United States and Russian President Vladimir Putin. "This president’s response – I don’t know how it could have been weaker, besides doing nothing," McCain said during an appearance on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports. The Arizona Republican said that Putin is likely "encouraged by the absolute timidity" of the U.S. reaction to Russia's incursion into Crimea. "I don’t know when the president and his advisers are going to wake up to what...

    Sen. John McCain returned from a trip to Ukraine on Sunday, calling for "a fundamental re-assessment" of the United States' relationship with Russian Vladimir Putin. “No more reset buttons," McCain told Candy Crowley on CNN's "State of the Union." “No more reset buttons, no more ‘Tell Vladimir I’ll be more flexible.’ Treat him for what he is. That does not mean re-ignition of the Cold War. But it does mean treating him in the way that we understand an individual who believes in restoring the old Russian empire.” McCain, who has been critical of the Obama administration's response to the...

    Russians deserve better than President Vladimir Putin, who doesn't respect human dignity or the authority of the governed, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said. Putin "doesn't believe that human nature at liberty can rise above its weaknesses and build just, peaceful, prosperous societies," McCain wrote in a commentary published by Pravda Thursday. "Or, at least, he doesn't believe Russians can. So he rules by using those weaknesses, by corruption, repression and violence. He rules for himself, not you." McCain said he isn't "anti-Russian" as he has been portrayed in Russian media.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham is one of the strongest advocates of an American military strike against the Assad regime in Syria. He was unhappy when President Obama decided to seek congressional authorization for an attack, and then unhappy when his fellow lawmakers voiced disapproval of the president's plan. Graham believes the diplomatic path chosen by the administration will lead to a debacle. Given all that, Graham now says he will work with a bipartisan group of senators to craft a resolution authorizing the president to use military force -- not against the Syrian regime but against Iran.

    Yes, We Are the World's Policeman In his speech to the nation on Syria last week, the president twice emphasized that America is not the "world's policeman." According to polls, most Americans agree. Unfortunately, however, relinquishing this role assures catastrophe, both for the world and for America.
