Israel vs. Iran in Syria, Mueller indictments, Pakistan troops to Saudi Arabia, Zuckerberg kneeling to Putin

How Israel intends to defeat Iran in Syria: by military dominance

The key takeaway from Mueller’s latest indictments: Russia isn’t our friend

Why Pakistan is sending soldiers to Saudi Arabia: Mohammed bin Salman

The Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg is betraying U.S. values by bowing to Russian pressure by blocking access to Instagram

Tillerson Lebanon, Common Sense, $10.7

In Beirut, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson masters the Lebanese political waltz. The secretary did a good job facing down U.S. adversaries and holding a smile

Why “common sense” is an utterly useless phrase on gun debates. We don’t even agree to disagree on what it means

$10.7 billion can make our schools a lot safer. That’s how much it would cost to put 2 armed security officers in every public school and college in America

Zuma's South Africa, Netanyahu's future and peace process, Navalny vs. Deripaska/Putin, Omarosa at war

Jacob Zuma has betrayed Nelson Mandela’s legacy and is burning South Africa’s future. He must be dragged from power

Benjamin Netanyahu’s future now rests in the hands of the judiciary. The police recommendation to charge Bibi with corruption affects U.S. foreign policy interests

Alexei Navalny is struggling for free expression and political accountability. Google and Instagram must not kneel to Russian demands to censor the investigative journalist

If Omarosa and Piers Morgan were nation states, who would win a war between them? I provide the answer!

Peter Rabbit muppets, Infrastructure taxes, Ron Wyden, EPA waste, ISIS trials

Peter Rabbit movie protesters are humorless and deserve unrepentant repudiation

In return for a repeal of Davis-Bacon, Republicans should support a gas tax increase

Ron Wyden is probably wasting his time in investigating Donald Trump’s sale of a Palm Beach mansion. The Senator believes money laundering may be involved

EPA chief Pruitt is playing taxpayers by wasting money on first class adventures

It would be a terrible idea to try the ISIS beatles at the Int. Criminal Court. That court system is inefficient and insufficient to the crimes the terrorists have committed

Hamster moron, Russia Syria, Julian Castro

The student who attempted to take a hamster on an aircraft deserves absolutely no sympathy. On the contrary, she deserves criminal charges

Russia's hand lurks close in Syria's attack on US forces. Putin is attempting to push the U.S. out of Syria. Fortunately, Trump is willing to bomb them

Julian Castro is looking towards 2020. And as he does so, the Texan Democrat is burning Biden and Bernie

Al Qaeda linked pilot in Oklahoma, Market fear, Trump Berlusconi

EXCLUSIVE: the flight school which trained a Saudi national (who applied to join al Qaeda in 2000) to get his FAA pilot’s license in 2016, says he wanted to be a commercial pilot

You shouldn’t worry about the markets: human nature and the temptation of fear

We might be heading for the Trump-Berlusconi show. Anything will be possible

The McLaughlin Group

This week on The McLaughlin Group
we discussed the memo, the state of the union and the u.s-u.k. relationship

The Glorious Corps

Just had to share this. Battles won

Nunes memo and Christopher Steele, African migrants drowning, Nunes attitudes

How the Nunes memo inadvertently helps Christopher Steele’s credibility. The former British spy is referred to as credible in a report that purports to show the opposite

African children are drowning in the Mediterranean because of European disinterest. It’s pathetic

Here’s why the memo release won’t change many minds

Poland's Holocaust, China: the U.S. vs. U.K., Nunes and Schiff, terrorism in U.K.

I oppose but can understand Poland’s Holocaust bill. This is about national pride and a fuller rendering of the legacy of Nazi oppression

On China, the U.S. and the U.K. are increasingly divided. The British preference trade, the Americans preference international order

Congressmen Devin Nunes and Adam Schiff need to step down. They are jeopardizing the crucial work of the House Intelligence Oversight Committee

A terrorist has just been convicted for attacking innocent British Muslims. Here’s what we should takeaway from the incident.

Antisemitism in France, Social justice warriors in London, People who take Peacocks on planes, and missile defense failures!

France is suffering with antisemitic violence. Here’s why and how France can stop it

Social justice warriors stormed a cafe. Their gripe? Winston Churchill. Their success? Non-existent

People who want to carry Peacocks on planes should be forced to sit in the cargo hold. Give me a break

The U.S. military has a problem: its latest ballistic missile defense test was a failure. Still, the outcome wasn’t entirely surprising. Here’s what’s going on

SOTU takes

3 foreign policy lines at SOTU, Angela Davis, Iran propaganda, Secret Service at SOTU, Pompeo on Russia

Three foreign policy lines to expect from tonight’s State of the Union address. On Iran, North Korea and Russia, Trump is likely to pledge tough action
Angela Davis is a communist who charges $15,000-$30,000 per speech. But her words don’t offer much intellectual substance
From Iran’s Press TV, 4 examples of propaganda and trolling. The Iranian government’s western focused propaganda outlet revels in conspiracies and craziness

How the Secret Service will secure Trump at the State of the Union. It must strike a balance between security and ceremonial pomp

CIA director Mike Pompeo: the U.S. will retaliate if Russia attempts to interfere with the Midterm elections. Pompeo’s words suggest a tougher approach than that of the Obama administration in the 2016 elections
