Amazon CIA, Raqqa ISIS, Seattle liberalism, Brexit economy, ISIS Philippines

Trump should appoint Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos, his new CIA director if he decides to move his current director, Mike Pompeo, to the State Department

Raqqa has fallen. It’s a big victory, but challenges await over the horizon

Amazon has sparked a battle between Seattle liberals and pragmatists. For Seattle’s sake, the pragmatists need to win

Brexit is likely to harm the British economy in the short term, but it must go ahead anyway

A top ISIS leader in the Philippines has been killed. It will help global security

What's happening in Kirkuk and how the US should respond. Plus, why the crisis in northern Iraq threatens to spill over into a regional conflagration

This Halloween, colleges are warning their students to avoid cultural appropriation. Here’s why students should ignore them

Venezuela just held another fake election. Time to ban Venezuelan oil exports

Iran editorial (I wrote) on President Trump's new Iran deal strategy

President Trump delivered a tough but proportionate speech on Iran. He pledged to improve the nuclear deal with that nation, and counter Iran’s aggression in the region

Britain has ruled that public schools cannot segregate boys and girls. It’s the right decision.

South Africa has decided that its president, Jacob Zuma, should face trial over a corrupt arms deal from 1999. It’s a long overdue step to confront a very corrupt president

A new movie shows how Britain saved Iranian diplomats in London while Iran held American diplomats in Tehran. It also evidences why hostage sieges are so challenging

Sonic Cuba, Pakistan hostages, Millennial taxes

Who is responsible for the sonic attacks on US diplomats in Cuba? Here are three possible culprits with intent and means

Pakistan’s story about the rescue of Caitlan Coleman doesn’t add up. That said, here’s why the Pakistanis released the hostages

Young conservatives must oppose tax reform that adds to the deficit. If we don’t, we are smacking ourselves in the wallet

Special Report + Overtime!

Plus overtime!

Trump Korea, NFL, Trump media, Trump nukes

Is Trump considering stepping inside North Korea? Maybe. Here’s why that would be a mistake

The NFL is broken. The league needs to empower fans, speed up games, and get rid of Roger Goodell

He might like threatening the press, but Trump’s complaints are toothless. Unless, that is, the media take the president’s bait

The US doesn’t need a tenfold increase in its nuclear warhead stockpile, but Trump doesn’t deserve the criticism he’s receiving for suggesting otherwise

Trump Korea, CPP repeal, Austria burqas, Syria soccer, Iran espionage

Did we just find out why President Trump keeps threatening Kim Jong-un on Twitter? The revelation that North Korea hacked South Korea’s defense ministry might explain what’s going on

The Clean Power Plan is immoral. It drives up energy prices and hurts the poor the most

Austria’s shark-man proves that burqa bans are stupid. They deny individual freedom and impose ludicrous infringements on public assembly

Syria’s national soccer team has been defeated in its 2018 World Cup qualification campaign. But although they didn’t make it, Syria’s players deserve immense credit

Of course Iran is proliferating nuclear and ballistic missile materiel. The latest reports of Iranian espionage activity shouldn’t surprise anyone

Che Guevara, Corker deficits, IRGC terrorists

Che Guevara was an evil, possibly psychopathic, idiot and not much in the way of an insurgent, either. The communist guerrilla leader was a loser. Here’s why

Senator Bob Corker is right to point out that Republicans don’t care about the deficit. It’s a crucial issue that demands more attention

The Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps is a terrorist organization and should be labelled as such. But the timing of designating the IRGC a terrorist group is important

SSBN peace, Trump Tillerson, Grace Mugabe, Iran editorial

US and British nuclear ballistic-missile submarine crews deserved this year’s nobel peace prize. Here’s why

Trump must listen to Tillerson or fire him. The current state of affairs damages U.S. diplomacy and is an affront to good government

Grace Mugabe is a venal and violent woman. Let us hope she doesn't become Zimbabwe’s next president

I've written the Washington Examiner's Saturday editorial on Iran, it can be read here

Iran deal, Partisan friends, Green Berets, Rohingya Genocide, Taiwan

Trump should not decertify the Iran nuclear deal, yet. Once we set off down that path, the diplomacy and risks get very complex very quickly. There’s a better alternative

Why and how the US must confront Burma's Rohingya genocide. The suffering is exponential but UN action is non-existent. We have alternatives to end the killings

America's partisan friend zone problem. A new Pew poll shows that many Americans have very few friends from opposite political persuasions. Here’s why that’s a problem

How, in Niger and beyond, the Green Berets serve US security. They are elite soldiers, but they’re also able to speak with, understand, train, and lead very different forces

House Republicans want increased U.S. support for Taiwan. That’s a good thing

Second Amendment, North Korea, Britain Sputnik

Why the European establishment hates the Second Amendment. It’s not because they hate guns, but because they believe government is more trustworthy than individuals

How a CIA report from 1957 explains the North Korean missile threat in 2017

A newly declassified CIA report sheds light on British involvement, 60 years ago, in the Soviet
Union’s Sputnik satellite launches
