Israel is a major source of Muslim hatred for the United States and everyone knows it.
Careful, that's a very ignorant statement to make concerning Islam.
Islam considers America the Great White Satan, an infidel nation that ALSO sides with Israel.
Orthodox Islam forbids women many freedoms they have here. Orthodox Islam forbids many of the freedoms we all can enjoy here. Sharia forbids 99.9% of what our nation considers freedoms. That's why they hate us.
BTW, take a real close look at nations where they are 100% Muslim. You'll find massive poverty.

He's hard to miss. He's certainly in the news...
Like I said, good thing you're on the corrupt side of the fence so you can defend the double standards and hypocrisy until the cows come home.

Obama has far outdone Nixon in cover ups for political advantage and subversion of democracy.
Edwards far outdid McDonnell in egregious behaviors and misappropriation of funds.

But only Nixon and McDonnell were Republicans.

The liberal courts and the liberal propagandists are like permissive parents when it comes to their precious little bundles of joy who never do anything wrong. But they're everyone else's nightmare.

Obama is waiting for and hoping someone else will take the lead. He wants to be the leader of the UN, not the USA.
The second most dangerous thing in the world would be that idiot in charge of the UN!!! The first of course is him being president.

No need to wonder anymore. He could have gotten the same 30 years but, apparently, that would have been an extraordinary punishment for laws that are usually subverted and ignored.
Thankfully, Edwards had a circus court and four jurors who were clearly in solidarity with Edwards. He was subsequently charged with only one of the six counts.
Only Republicans who are accused of much lesser offenses get the full extent of the law and extraordinary punishment.
But you didn't know anything about Edwards. Glad to help again.

you mean like Reagan and his administration when they sold arms and munitions to terrorists?

so glad to hear that you support the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei
Regime. which explains why you are so gung-ho to attack and destroy ISIS without considering all the consequences. I'm guessing you're also a big supporter of Assad too.

glad to hear that you consider treason, aiding and abeting the enemy is a lesser charge than campaigh hijinks

Bull. Only three countries joined the United States with troops during the initial Iraqi invasion... United Kingdom (45,000 troops), Australia (2,000), and Poland (194).

Italy's new Prime Minister declared Thursday that the war in Iraq was a "grave error" that risked igniting conflict in the entire Middle East region. He said Italy would stick with plans to brime home it's troops.....
Many US allies withdrew their forces quickly while others, Poland for instance, significantly reduced their manpower contributions.
The Bush administration lied to our allies just as it lied to congress and the American people.
You're a fing moron!
Yes, it did get ugly when we faced an unexpected resurgent force and al Qaeda who didn't give up and go home after Saddam was removed from power and his regime destroyed.

But war is ugly. Good thing Bush ordered the surge and left Obama with a stabilized Iraq, right?

If Italy took its purse and went home when things got tough just one year before it was over, it's more of an embarrassment to them. The threat was still there by terrorists who don't carry a purse.

But Italy was all in when they, too, believed Saddam was a threat at the beginning, weren't they? Just like Hillary Clinton and John Kerry. And 109 other Democrats.

President Bush got it Right back in 2007, when he Predicted the Danger/Outcome of withdrawing from Iraq to Soon!!
PRESIDENT BUSH’S 2007 STATEMENT:“I know some in Washington would like us to start leaving Iraq now. To begin withdrawing before our commanders tell us we're ready would be dangerous for Iraq, for the region and for the United States. It would mean surrendering the future of Iraq to Al Qaida … It'd mean that we'd be risking mass killings on a horrific scale. It'd mean we'd allow the terrorists to establish a safe haven in Iraq to replace the one they lost in Afghanistan. It'd mean we'd be increasing the probability that American troops would have to return at some later date to confront an enemy that is even more dangerous!!”
Too bad president Dumbya did listen to President George H.W. Bush who said that if we took out Saddam, Iraq would turn into another Vietnam and we could be there 10 years, the outcome would still be the same, a no win civil war between Iraqi Sunni, shia and Kurds. Removing saddam would destabilize the Middle East, no matter how long we stayed. Its an unwinnable situation.

If President Dumbo was so right in 2007, why did he sign the SOF agreement in 2008 that had all U.S. combat troops out by 2011??

It's amazing, isn't it? The government is controlled by a Democrat in the Executive Branch and Democrats in the Senate - 2/3 of the power.
But when polls show disapproval with Congress - liberals automatically assume it's because Republicans control the House and 1/3 of the power.
The blame game is starting to get old.
FILIBUSTER

Look it up, then look up how many times its been used since President Obama took office. While you're at it, compare that total to the total number of times its been used prior to President Obama and tell me which number is greater

Slanderous opinion? A respected liberal professor and constitutional attorney, Jonathan Turley, of George Washington University Law School has stated publicly and on numerous occasions that Obama has far outdone Nixon in overstepping his Constitutional boundaries as president.

His words: "The Framers would be horrified at Obama’s abuse of power."

Slanderous? Or just another fact you don't want to hear?

Obama is a dictator who thinks that the Constitution gives him the power to write & enforce his own laws in the event that Congress doesn't just roll over and play dead. That you don't want to admit this truth is understandable, as you are a True Believer with no brain of your own. But it's also totally irrelevant.
