John McCain Slips Across Border
Into Syria, Meets With Rebels

Daily Beast, by Josh Rogin

Original Article

Posted By:MDMuskrat, 5/27/2013 2:53:18 PM

Sen. John McCain Monday became the highest-ranking U.S. official to enter Syria since the bloody civil war there began more than two years ago, The Daily Beast has learned. McCain, one of the fiercest critics of the Obama administration’s Syria policy, made the unannounced visit across the Turkey-Syria border with Gen. Salem Idris, the leader of the Supreme Military Council of the Free Syrian Army. (Snip) [Rebel leaders asked the U.S. to] provide them with heavy weapons, a no-fly zone, and airstrikes on the Syrian regime and the forces of Hezbollah, which is increasingly active in Syria.

Comments:
It is disgusting that this self aggrandizing RINO is conducting meetings with the Syrian rebels, whose allegiances are unknown (but suspect) and which co-opt State Department prerogatives.

He probably told jugears he would push his immigration bill if he would let him go to Syria. He wants to feel sooooooooo important. How much would it take to keep him, $100, $200?

Bad idea, Senator. We hated it when the Jim Wright-led Dems tried to line up with Ortega while Reagan was President. Congresspersons and Senators don´t get to run foreign policy.

This is all orchestrated. McCain met Obama for `lunch` and `dinner` a few weeks ago. McCain is gathering info for Obama in order to make a case to provide the `rebels` with armament.

Once again, the president gets McCain to act as his dupe.

I think there´s something to what #4 said. McCain is also pals with Kerry. If Assad takes the town of Qusayr he´s essentially won. Syria will have a clear, direct route to transfer weapons (missiles) to Hezbollah. The war´s about to escalate.

Timely question: Have the wealthy McCains been audited by the IRS during Obama´s reign? How about an OSHA inspection of Mrs McCain´s business? Perhaps an ICE visit?? Have a feeling Obama exempted the McCains from all the hassles imposed on Romney supporters in order to keep John subservient.

As to Syria, someone tell McCain he lost in 2008. Obama is president, not you. Obama has to inform the nation of our options and be responsible for his actions or inactions, not an elderly senator from Arizona.

What happened was they were heading to Paris for a weekend getaway and McC demanded to fly the plane, screaming his father was an admiral. They gave into him and he crashed the plane over Syria./s
This was simply grandstanding. He had no right to pull a stunt like this. It was reckless. It is for the executive branch to deal with these matters. What if the old fool had been captured or killed?
I do like the possible aggravation he might have caused BHO.

He couldn´t be President of the USA, but maybe he can still be King of Syria!

Seriously one has to respect his trip there, but it´s hard to imagine what he could possibly see that isn´t obvious from here, and couldn´t be observed a lot better by others.

#11 and #4, yes, McCain was on board with the Libyan rebels and surely was part of the gunrunning from Benghazi. Boehner changes the subject when Benghazi comes up and starts talking about jobs, Keystone--anything to avoid addressing the mess that McCain and other GOP bigwigs have been in on with the four American deaths unanswered for. McCain tried to take down Michele Bachmann when she criticized Huma´s and our entire government´s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. McCain loves the MoBros and O-bro and is a double agent. Also, despite being rich, I think he is in it for more money as well as feeding his grandiosity.

While i have no use for McCain--old and embarrassing are the kindest things I can think to say about him--pay attention to comments by #4 and 11.
As 0´s emissary, McCain could(will) pull us into a conflict that could cause the much dreaded Mideast meltdown--and possibly worse.
McCain is a an unaccountable, reckless warmonger anxious to spend American blood and treasure. Stay tuned to his sidekick Lindsey Graham´s pronouncements on Syria.....

Yup, McCain assured us the Libyan rebels were our friends. 4 dead Americans later, he wants to try it with the Syrians.

We knew better with Libya and certainly know better with Syria.

McCain´s staffers need to acknowledge he´s either senile or stupid and force him to resign.

I agree with #3. I didn´t like it when dems went to other countries when Bush was President and it´s not the place of the opposition now either - despite my agreement with those who think this was collusion between McCain and Obama. Unfortunately, McCain wants attention so badly he´ll work with someone who has repeatedly humiliated him, and in his old age McCain has horrible judgment. I voted for him but did so holding my nose. I still would prefer him over Obama but he´s really quite unqualified for his current office or any higher one.

This is why McCain won´t push to find out what "really" happened in Benghazi. He already knew what was happening regarding the weapons transfers and approved of it. They were to go to the people he met with.

If McCain weren´t at the bottom of his class at Annapolis, his years as a POW would have taught him that involving yourself in civil wars is like lighting dynamite and sitting on it.

Did he act on his own, or did Zero wiretap him into doing this?

Deserts always feel like my natural habitat, and I am very fond of them. That being said, I have, for my sins, spent a fair amount of time in Clark County, Nev., and it is not the loveliest stretch of desert in these United States, or even in the top twelve. Protecting the pristine beauty of the sun-baked and dust-caked outskirts of Las Vegas and its charismatic fauna from grazing cattle — which the Bureau of Land Management seems to regard as an Old Testament plague — seems to me to be something less than a critical national priority.

Washington- Sen. Ted Cruz said Attorney General Eric Holder should be impeached if he doesn’t indict former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner, who is linked to the agency’s targeting of conservative groups. Speaking on Sean Hannity’s radio program Thursday, the Texas Republican labeled Holder the “most partisan attorney general the country has ever had,” and added that Holder should be impeached for “defying Congress and the rule of law.” Cruz cited the attorney general’s refusal to indict anyone in the months since the inspector general found that conservative and Tea Party groups were singled out for tax purposes.

Armed Rangers were brought in from out of state by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to assist in security surrounding the Bundy Ranch, according to the family. A heated confrontation on Wednesday resulted in Cliven Bundy’s son Ammon being tasered by BLM officials and a 57-year-old protester being shoved to the ground. Stetsy Bundy Cox, Cliven’s daughter, told the Washington Free Beacon that some of the rangers had Oregon and California license plates. “You know, some of these guys don’t even know why they’re here,” she said. “A few people have talked to them and they got called in

Before conservative policy wonks can win any policy victories, they’ll need to overhaul the Republican Party. For an idea of what that might look like and the challenges any transformation will entail, they should look to one of the party’s wonkiest politicians, Louisiana Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal. Last week, as President Obama touted the 7.1 million private plan sign-ups in Obamacare’s first open enrollment period, Jindal gave the world a glimpse at what the outlines of a Republican alternative might look like. Not only would the plan repeal Obamacare; it would, among other things, overhaul the tax code to remove

My reasons will, I hope, also become clear below.

Iowa Democratic Rep. Bruce Braley is still taking flak for his recent put-down of Sen. Chuck Grassley. That´s all wrong. Give the trial lawyer a medal for alerting the electorate to a big—if overlooked—issue in this year´s midterm: legal reform. Mr. Braley, as part of his bid to replace retiring Sen. Tom Harkin, found himself at a fundraiser full of Texas trial attorneys. He scornfully warned that a GOP Senate would put the Judiciary Committee in the hands of "a farmer from Iowa [Mr. Grassley] who never went to law school."

Sen. Ted Cruz has released a dynamic new video featuring highlights of the senator´s biggest moments. Cruz encourages Republicans to stand for the rights enshrined in the Constitution, and to stand on principle. "We can either choose to keep our head down, and not rock the boat, to not stand for anything, or we can stand for principle," the Texas Republican says in the video. "Yes, we can," he concludes, echoing President Obama´s 2008

"If we are lending money that ostensibly we don´t have to kids who have no hope of making it back in order to train them for jobs that clearly don´t exist, I might suggest that we´ve gone around the bend a little bit," says TV personality Mike Rowe. Rowe is the longtime host of Discovery Channel´s Dirty Jobs, where he takes on gigs straight out of Bob Dylan songs: working on fishing boats, sewer systems, oil derricks, slaughterhouses, and more.

As longtime readers may know, Bob Ehrlich, Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., is one of my favorite politicians in America. A Maryland Republican, he served in Congress and also as governor of his state.

Maryland was a very, very Democratic state. There hadn’t been a Republican governor since the 1960s — since Agnew. Moreover, Ehrlich was running against a Kennedy: the lieutenant governor, Kathleen

The Ted Cruz Effect: Political Gold?

Ted Cruz is not on the March 4 primary ballot. But his likeness is all over TV and in campaign materials, as a slew of Republican candidates on the primary ballot are using his words and — in rare occasions — his endorsement to reach out to voters. This year, having Cruz weigh in any way possible “is political gold,” said Mark P. Jones, a political science professor at Rice University in Houston. His thumbs up for a candidate serves “as a signal to Cruz’s plethora of supporters within the GOP primary electorate who the ‘true’ movement conservative in the in the race is,” he said. And that has made a number of candidates try to link themselves

Although Democrats control the Senate, he announced, they would have to convince at least five Republicans to join them in supporting a bill to raise the debt ceiling or else he would delay the bill by filibustering. In doing so, he raised the ire of colleagues like Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who was forced to vote to forestall the filibuster—and might

Sarasota, Florida—The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) just held its winter meeting here, and the wealthy beachfront communities that dot the coast are typically considered one of the beating hearts of the Establishment GOP´s donor community. Tonight, though, it´s Cruz country. An event originally scheduled as a small rally for potential 2016 presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) mushroomed into a major political event after nearly 2,000 people RSVP´d online. “We are shocked at the level of interest that we’ve received for doing this rally,” Sarasota GOP chairman Joe Gruters told Breitbart News.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
