Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has been making waves in the GOP in recent months as he tries to push a more libertarian philosophy in the party. But old guard neocons are hell-bent on ensuring that Paul and his legislative allies do not affect Congress’ beloved military-industrial complex.
Once more, Barack Obama has shown himself to be a pathetic President. The latest disgrace of the vaulted liberal leader is his failure to stand by his conviction to shut down Guantanamo Bay (Gitmo).

Janet Napolitano, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, was coy this week when asked about her Presidential ambitions in 2016. The former Arizona Governor has already received early buzz as a possible 2016 stand-in, should Hillary Clinton decide not to run.
Mass murders like the December 2012 shooting in Connecticut may provide perverse political fodder for gun-control advocates to push for more restrictive Federal gun-ownership laws; but in the eyes of the American public, it appears their gun-grabbing agenda is losing momentum.

In the eyes of many people, the left-right political paradigm has served little purpose beyond saturating political debate with conversations about moral issues, over which legislation has little affirmative power. If Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) gets his way, these conversations may become a thing of the past.
Tim Russert spent decades building NBC News’ “Meet the Press” into the benchmark of Sunday morning appointment television. But his replacement, David Gregory, has fallen into the same pit of partisanship that has turned the rest of NBC’s news apparatus into a weird little carnival of mealymouthed mendacity.
A group of California beekeepers and environmental groups filed suit last week to force the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to restrict insecticides they say has a detrimental effect on honeybees.
The groups filed their lawsuit against the EPA in the Northern District Court of California, demanding that the regulatory agency suspend the use of pesticides clothianidin and thiamethoxam. The pesticides, which are part of a class of systemic insecticides known as neonicotinoids, are absorbed by plants and transported throughout a plant’s vascular tissue, making the plant potentially toxic to insects, the groups said. Neonicotinoids are chemically related to nicotine, the harmful ingredient in tobacco products.
