There's a lot worth being nostalgic about here when compared to the present moment, but for the reasons Foucalf said it wouldn't be sustainable even if you were somehow able to achieve it. Even in Medieval times I don't believe there was a true pan-Islamic caliphate after the Umayyads of the 8th century.

Mike Huckabee's endorsement might be useful to a social conservative/evengelical candidate. Cruz's, if he doesn't run, might be helpful to another Tea Party candidate.

Doors he drink the blood of the illuminati or partake in a blood drinking illuminati ritual? The answer may not be as interesting as the question.

Rowland is at it again....

Quote
Former Connecticut Gov. John G. Rowland, who resigned from office a decade ago in a corruption scandal, was convicted Friday of federal charges that he conspired to hide payment for work on two congressional campaigns.

Rowland, once a rising star for the Republican Party, served 10 months in prison for taking illegal gifts while in office and now as a repeat offender faces the possibility of a much stiffer sentence.

The government's case centered around a contract between Rowland and a nursing home chain owned by the husband of 2012 congressional candidate Lisa Wilson-Foley. Rowland's attorneys argued he volunteered for the campaign while receiving $35,000 to consult for her husband's company, but prosecutors said the money was an illegal payment for campaign services.

This whole "me-too" ism regarding beating up ISIS even harder than Obama, while at the same time opposing this bill.  It pretty much reeks of trying to have it both ways, and just underscores the lack of a coherent policy he actually has about regarding middle east policy.

It seems that neither party has had a monopoly on power as soon as each party gave up its "traditional" "moderate" bases of support.

Do you think that the era uninterrupted one-party (albeit superfluous at times) rule is over?

Haven't been to Wales yet, but Ive enjoyed my time in England, Scotland and the North. Voted for Ireland.

I'd highly recommend Cymru, especially the Brecon Beacons.

One glaring oversight in this scenario: do you really think all Arabs believe in some perfectly substitutable Islamic faith? Do you really think citizens in Arabic states don't have their own particular nationalisms either?

Pan-Arabism, of course, was tried during the Cold War and failed. Today alliances constantly shift between states, out of mutual mistrust and the desire for each country to be the leading power. Let us imagine an "Islamic caliphate" claiming its legitimacy - and watch it be ravaged by protests and clerical dissent a week later.

(Not to mention that the Ottoman administrative system in the Middle East was held up in part by a slave trade lasting until the early 20th century)
