1st amendment study, Ukraine assassinations, North Korea nuclear detonation over Pacific?, U.S. progress in Afghanistan, Trump won't visit DMZ

A new CATO institute study shows who is responsible for anti-first amendment attitudes. It’s the partisans, stupid

In Ukraine, it’s dangerous to be anti-Putin. Over the last year, multiple individuals have been targeted for assassination. What unites them is their opposition to Putin’s agenda

North Korea might soon detonate a nuclear warhead over the Pacific Ocean. Here’s how the U.S. should respond if Kim Jong Un follows through on his threat

The U.S. government just released a new report on Afghanistan. It shows that progress remains too slow, but cause for optimism is justified

President Trump won’t visit the DMZ on his trip to South Korea, next week. That’s both good news and bad news

Oswald, CIA reform, Bernie rich, Manafort Ukraine, Saudi nukes, North Korea

In 2017, Lee Harvey Oswald would fail to assassinate a president. Here’s why

CIA Director, Mike Pompeo, wants the agency to take more risks. He’s right, but it’s complicated

Bernie Sanders loves to attack the rich for their wealth and success. Here’s why he and other liberals should love them

Paul Manafort is accused of working for US adversaries in Ukraine. Here’s what you need to know about his Ukrainian political allies

Saudi Arabia is doubling down on its nuclear program for two reasons: Iran and domestic politics.

North Korea just held a marathon. It didn’t go very well

Iran Kurds, Pope Space, Henry V, Democrats Nuclear, Yale Shakespeare

Iran is attempting to seize the Kurdish controlled Iraq-Syria border. It will be a disaster for U.S. interests if they succeed. The Trump administration should respond

Pope Francis and astronauts in Space just proved that science and faith can be allies, not foes

Democrats are introducing legislation to limit President Trump’s nuclear command authority. It shouldn’t and won’t work, but there is an alternative

Yale University has decided that studying Shakespeare will no longer be mandatory for students. Here’s why that’s a terrible decision

North Korea, Trump drones, Lazio racism, Park fees

How 3 fleets and Trump’s tweets are aligning to advance diplomacy with China and North Korea

President Trump has signed a memorandum that will unleash the drone development industry. That’s good news for America and our economy

Lazio is one of Italy’s best soccer clubs, but its president is on the defensive as he challebges anti-Semitic fans. Unfortunately, he’s unlikely to succeed

I support the National Park Service’s decision to raise entry fees. I’d rather have visitors pay a little more than taxpayers bear the entire burden

Saudi Arabia, Secret Service, AUMF debate, Jeff Flake, ISIS returners

Saudi Arabia’s crown prince just declared war on the clerics. Pledging to destroy Islamic extremists and build a capitalist mega-city, Mohammed bin Salman is fundamentally reshaping Saudi society.

No, the Secret Service didn’t fail President Trump when a protester threw Russian flags towards him. Here’s why

When it comes to a new authorization of military force against global terrorist groups, Senator Ron Johnson is both right and wrong

Senator Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., might have announced he’s retiring, but Republican primary voters should remember the respect he showed to a Democratic opponent

Senator Ron Johnson says that ISIS’ returner threat to the U.S. is lower than previously anticipated. Here’s why he’s probably correct

Niger Senators, Shinzo Abe, College administration, Beirut Marines, BBC bias

Senators have no excuses for their Niger ignorance. They were in a position to ask the military for more information

Shinzo Abe should follow the example of William Pitt the Younger and pursue these bold domestic and foreign policy reforms

Colleges waste vast sums on administration costs. We can cut those expenditures

34 years ago, Monday, Iran began its blood feud with America. It started with a suicide bomb attack on thet U.S. marine barracks in Beirut

The BBC's John Simpson just proved that media bias affects us all. The only response is to ensure more media outlets are reporting

Florida protests, Texas MH370, Frederica moron, Wild Boars

At the UF, protesters and the school’s president played straight into Richard Spencer’s hands. Doing so, they proved the left has no conception of free speech

A Texan company is convinced it can find MH-370. Here’s why we should be optimistic about its chances

Frederica Wilson might be an idiot, but she has the right to debate a 4 star U.S. general. Democracy is why

Wild Boars are worthy of hunting. Powerful and abundant in population stock, they are also invading German towns

3/5, Spain, Cambridge

As a Marine infantry officer, Robert Kelly would have wanted us to know the stories of the 3/5 men who died alongside him in Helmand, 2010-2011

Spain must ensure its political and territorial integrity, but if it overplays its hand in Catalonia, history warns that terrorism may follow

Cambridge University has embraced safe spaces. Here’s why the transgender student society is wrong to oppose controversial speakers

Xi China, ISIS territory, US India, Gay Nazis

President Xi of China just delivered a very important speech to his Communist Congress. There’s a lot at stake for US interests

Territory matters a great deal to ISIS’ pursuit of its global mission.
Indeed, for ISIS, territory is theological

To win a better future, the US and India need a stronger alliance. Fortunately, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson just gave a superb speech to that effect

A British neo-Nazi has just quit his organization and come out as gay. But don’t be shocked, there’s nothing new about gay Nazis

Special Report

GOP wants tax reform because they need a win: 47m21s or, if that doesn't work, 35m25s here

Kurdish situation in Iraq poses major regional challenges - 49m04s or, if that doesn't work, 37m24s here

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

Kirkuk Iraq, Cultural appropriation, Venezuela election, Chicken regulations

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

Suppliers want Trump to repeal a cap on the number of chickens an employee can inspect. The president should do so

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

and if you're reading this via email, make sure to check out my Fox News appearance below. It was a fun one!

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
