Army UFO, Brexit, Syria Iraq, Gabbard asset

U.S. Army signs contract to study UFO material and make better weapons. Seriously, it’s a strange but exciting time to be alive!
Britain’s huge Brexit Saturday. Boris Johnson faces a last ditch vote to get Brexit enacted.
A tale of two failures: Obama’s Iraq arrogance, Trump’s Syria ignorance. Please don’t confuse the two.
Tulsi Gabbard isn’t a Russian asset. She’s a Congresswoman whose views align with Russian strategic interests. The difference is important.

Cease fire, Mark Milley, UN credibility, London rebels

Syria cease-fire: Trump orders Kurds to surrender. The cease fire is not an art of the deal, it is a submission to Erdogan’s ambitions.
Trump, Pelosi, and General Mark Milley’s anguish. The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has good reason to lament the nation’s political leadership.
The United Nations hammers another nail in its credibility coffin. Electing Venezuela to the human rights council is truly astonishing.
Londoners rebel against Extinction Rebellion idiots. The battle of Canning Town is a battle in the finest traditions of Agincourt.

Kim's mountain, PKK ISIS, The Report

Kim Jong Un’s white horse offers a dark omen for missile moratorium. The North Korean leader is signalling a major announcement beckons.
No, President Trump, the PKK is not worse than ISIS. They differ in ideology, intent, and tactics.
Amazon Prime’s The Report is a disaster show. It’s a fake news history of the CIA, designed to give you the wrong impression of public servants.

Warren medicare, twitter Harris, Buttigieg America

Elizabeth Warren was ambushed and embarrassed on medicare-for-all. She simply didn’t withstand the barrage of criticism from her Democratic primary opponents.
Why on Earth does Kamala Harris think her ban-Trump-from-Twitter agenda is serious? It is unbecoming of a serious candidate for the American presidency.
Pete Buttigieg mastered the foreign policy debate. He spoke eloquently and with knowledge about America’s role in the world.

Middle East

Trump self-destructs his Middle East policy. Thanks to the president’s withdrawal of U.S. forces from Syria, the three pillars of his regional strategy have been smashed.

Trump hypocrisy, Lexus Vovan, Rand Paul

Trump’s absurd hypocrisy towards Saudi Arabia and the Kurds. Why on Earth is Trump saying he opposes Middle Eastern entanglement with our Kurdish allies, but supports new entanglement with the Saudis?

Personal insight on Lexus and Vovan, the Russian intelligence agents who pranked Lindsey Graham. They are not comedians.

Rand the ridiculous. Rand Paul’s claims of foreign policy realism are paper thin.

ISIS beatles, Florida prisons, Georgetown protesters

Put the ISIS beheader beatles on trial in the US. They deserve to face justice commensurate with their crimes.

Florida’s prison system is a broken crisis zone. It requires major action from the Governor and state legislatures. Here are the problems and some solutions.

Georgetown University needs to decide whether it is a university or a hostage. The two cannot coexist in equilibrium. Time for the university to suspend student protesters.

Turkey attacks, Russia disinformation, UN Cash

Turkey attacks: Civilians will die, allies will fall, and Trump will reap the ISIS whirlwind. This is a terrible decision on President Trump’s part.

Exploring Russia’s western-focus propaganda campaign. The Russians don’t simply rely on RT and Sputnik to get their disinformation messages across.

The United Nations has a cash flow crisis. Good. The U.S. should refuse to provide new funds absent significant UN reform.

Senate report, Daryl Morey, Brexit border, Joe Tsai

The big problem with the Senate’s hacking report. Ultimately, it offers nothing on that which would do most to stop future attacks on our elections.

China helpfully makes Daryl Morey’s point for him. The NBA might be bowing to Beijing, but Beijing doesn’t want to play into the NBA’s defenses.

Why an Irish hard border risks Northern Irish peace. It’s about the symbolism of a physical border at a time of political discord.

Question: why is Joe Tsai regurgitating Chinese propaganda? The owner of the Brooklyn Nets seems to buy into Beijing’s BS on Hong Kong
