Rand Paul Implores Senate: Don’t Arm ‘Feckless Rebels In Syria’
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul implored his fellow senators on Thursday to not authorize President Barack Obama’s request to train and arm the “feckless” rebels in Syria in order to fight the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. “Let’s not compound the problem by arming feckless rebels in Syria who seem to be merely a pit stop for weapons that are really on their way to ISIS,” Paul said during a lengthy floor speech Thursday afternoon before the Senate voted on the bill. The House approved the legislation Wednesday. “If there is a theme that connects the dots in the Middle East, it is that chaos breeds terrorism,” Paul said. “What much of the foreign policy elite fail to grasp, though, is that intervention to topple secular dictators has been the prime source of the chaos.”

‘People’s Climate March’ Hurt By Questions About Carbon Footprint
Hundreds of thousands of environmental activists flocked to New York City over the weekend to take place in what is being called the largest march ever to demand world leaders impose tough regulations to tackle global warming. But the “People’s Climate March” is being hampered by questions about the gathering’s carbon footprint and by the fact that leaders from the world’s largest carbon dioxide emitters are ditching the UN climate conference this week. The march is heavily supported by celebrities and politicians who boast large carbon footprints. According to the march’s organizers, somewhere around 400,000 activists showed up to march ahead of a major United Nations climate summit — based on estimates using number of city blocks of people marching.
