AOC Blockbuster, Putin Ukraine, Sanders Putin, Warren policies

Why AOC should be at Blockbuster, not Netflix. The Congresswoman’s new TV show is a testament to capitalism and would be unlikely under her government policies.

President Putin is moving on Ukraine to push the president-elect to concessions. Putin wants to set the negotiating framework in his favor.

If it’s Sanders vs. Trump, Vladimir Putin will be all in for Sanders. The Democratic presidential aspirant is a very friendly face to Moscow.

Elizabeth Warren is the Trump gift that keeps giving. Her policies are an absurd minefield of unaffordable class warfare.

Chinese navy, D-Day, Census, State visit

Mind the Chinese navy’s impressive muscle flexing. The empire of Xi is making increasingly aggressive and credible steps to challenge the U.S. international order.

Gerald Vernon-Jackson dishonors D-Day and America. The British politician shows amazing foolishness by rejecting Trump’s attendance at Portsmouth memorial events.

Yes, ask a citizenship question on the census. The interest of more fully accurate information must come second to the interest of accurate Congressional apportionment.

Why Trump’s state visit to Britain is necessary, now. The president must be seen in the symbolism of the special relationship.

Aircraft carriers, Iran hardliners, Sri Lanka, China-Iran, Veep

The US sends a rare double-aircraft carrier message to Iran. The US Navy has two carrier strike groups near Iran, training in Iran related capabilities.

Iran’s hardliners can ill afford US sanctions. They will retaliate. The removal of US sanctions waivers on Iranian oil imports will harm the hardliners.

Sri Lanka, and the nice words leadership problem of Bernie Sanders and Jeremy Corbyn. Neither leader has what it takes to confront enemy threats.

The defining hypocrisy of a China-Iran alliance. The two nations are ideological opposites but increasing operational partners.

Veep’s Secret Service problem. The HBO series misses an opportunity for better realism and more humor by neglecting the Secret Service.

Biden, Monibot, IRA

Here are three reasons why, if Democrats want to win back the White House, they'll pick Joe Biden. The party needs a centrist minded candidate who can take on Trump on Trump's territory.

George Monibot and the climate change heart of darkness. Monibot evidences the fanatical anti-capitalist hatred that defines the climate change movement.

Why the killer of Lyra McKee is likely to be caught quickly. Northern Ireland is not the place it was during the troubles

Cuba sanctions, Extinction Rebellion, Bolsonaro event

Trump takes more meaningless action against Cuba. The administration doesn’t realize that it can’t prick the edges and expect Cuba to abandon Maduro.

The amazingly arrogant and annoying Extinction Rebellion movement. The protesters are ruining the working lives of others because they oppose democratic decisions.

Barring Bolsonaro, the American Museum of Natural History betrays its mission. The Brazilian leader’s private event should have been allowed to proceed.

Kim vs. deal, Trump on Fox News/Bernie Sanders, EU-US negotiations, France ally

How Kim is killing off Trump’s nuclear deal. The North Korean leader is cleverly moving towards Russia, and fraying US interests in belief of Trump’s unrelenting ego.

Why Trump’s Fox News/Bernie tweet was stupid and self-defeating. The president should value fair journalism, and voters being able to judge Sanders’ policies.

The US should endeavor to alter European Union negotiating baselines before agreeing to any new trade deal.

5 reasons France is a good US ally. The key issues are NATO, intelligence cooperation, China, military operations, and history.

Pompeo Venezuela, Notre Dame, Income returns, Erdogan Istanbul

At the Venezuelan border, Mike Pompeo tries and fails to emulate Reagan in Berlin. Offering words unmatched to action, he reminds us why Maduro remains in power.

The US should contribute 17.83 percent of the Notre Dame reconstruction costs. France is an important ally that deserves a tangible show of American support.

Making income tax returns public would be a betrayal of American tradition and an immoral overreach by government. There is no justification for the idea.

Loser Erdogan throws a tantrum after losing control in Istanbul. The Turkish strongman isn’t looking so strong in what’s supposed to be a key stronghold. Here’s why.

Putin deja, Omar 911, Corbyn, Spying, Star Trek

In St. Petersburg, Putin offers a masterclass in Deza. The art of distraction and deception is one that Putin knows and loves to use.

Don’t rush to judgement on Ilhan Omar’s 9/11 comments. The congresswoman may have been trying to draw positive contrast between American Islam and al Qaeda.

Jeremy Corbyn fires another shot against America. The Labour Party leader is a liar and an anti-American fanatic.

Sorry James Comey, surveillance is spying. It’s an obvious truth evidenced by MI5’s own official website.

Instead of Star Wars, watch Star Trek TNG’s “The Wounded.” A defining episode that shows Star Trek at its best, “The Wounded” explored the harsh reality of war.
