Bring Home Our Troops And, Yes, Throw A Parade

Feb 8th, 2018 | By

By Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) A military parade in the nation’s capital? The last military parade in Washington was in 1991, after our victory in the first Iraq War. Though the martial image of high-stepping soldiers is not one I tend to associate with our nation’s Founders’ distrust of a standing Army, I’m not against

Trump Should Pick A Secretary Of State Who Understands That Iraq Was A Debacle

Nov 29th, 2016 | By

Donald Trump needs a secretary of state who understands that we can’t build nations abroad and have enough money to rebuild our own nation. Both Trump’s foreign policy and domestic policy depend on him picking someone who has fully learned the historic lesson of the Iraq War: regime change and nation-building don’t work and cost too much.

Cotton Speaks On The Senate Floor On The Persecution Of Religious Minorities In Syria And Iraq

Mar 22nd, 2016 | By

Six months ago, a 12-year-old boy stood before a crowd in a Syrian village not far from Aleppo. This boy was a Christian, and standing above him were Islamic State terrorists holding knives. In the crowd was the boy’s father, a Christian minister. Methodically, the terrorists began cutting off the young boy’s fingers. Amidst his screams, they turned to the minister, his father. If he renounced his faith and, in their terms, “returned to Islam,” the boy’s suffering would stop.

Nov 24th, 2015 | By

Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) is Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and a GING-PAC endorsed legislator. He appeared recently on CNN with Jake Tapper to discuss the Syrian refugee crisis and credible reports that the Pentagon was pressured by White House operatives to falsify intelligence reports to give a rosy picture of Obama’s “fight” against the Islamic State.

Obama Veto Of Troops Must Not Stand

Nov 2nd, 2015 | By

At a time when our nation faces numerous security threats from the likes of ISIS, Iran, and North Korea, it is critical that the Department of Defense has the authority to carry out vital programs. Ironically, the President has vetoed this legislation even though just days ago he announced he would extend our military presence in Afghanistan. Our own Commander-in-Chief blocking the authorization for military funding is not the message we should be sending to those across the globe who wish to do our nation harm.

Trump: World Would Have Been Better With Hussein & Gadhafi Still In Power

Oct 26th, 2015 | By

Trump said he believes Iraq and Libya, the respective countries of the since-deceased dictators, would be less fractured and promote a more stable Middle East if the two had not been forcefully pushed out of power. Hussein fell from power following the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003 and Gadhafi was ousted following violent civil strife in 2011 that ultimately drew a NATO-led military intervention.

Time To Involve Congress Over Obama’s Ineffectual Attacks Against ISIS

Oct 6th, 2014 | By

Today the 60-day period designated by the War Powers Resolution that has so far allowed President Obama to take military action against an imminent threat to the United States runs out. It was two months ago that President Obama declared that ISIS expansion from Syria into Iraq triggered the authority given to him by the War Powers Resolution to take unilateral action, absent congressional approval, against ISIS.

Senate Candidate Joni Ernst Explains Her Conservative Values

Sep 8th, 2014 | By

Last year, at a forum sponsored by National Review, U.S. Senate candidate Joni Ernst explained her conservative values — including her belief in limited government, and a strong national defense. Ernst, who grew up on a farm in Iowa, is a commander in the Iowa National Guard and has led men and women in combat areas. She has been endorsed by GING-PAC and has a good chance of being the next U.S. Senator from Iowa in November.

Obama’s Feckless Policies Result In Death For Christians & Other Religious Minorities

Aug 12th, 2014 | By

The United States is back in Iraq, or at least over it, targeting the terror group ISIS in support of the delivery of humanitarian supplies to tens of thousands of terrified religious refugees. ISIS now chasing those innocents into the mountains where many are dying of thirst, starvation, and worse. Their M.O. – ruthless, brutal, and barbaric. The group even al Qaeda considers too extreme. And they are coming for us. They as much as told us. In 2009, Abu Baghdadi, when released by the U.S. – the now leader of ISIS – offered these famous parting words to his jailer: We’ll see you in New York.
