Trump leadership, Trump Twitter, Democrats infrastructure

Trump takes the challenge to Cuba. Trump is absolutely right to threaten Cuba over its continued support for Maduro.

Trump’s leadership was very sorely lacking on Tuesday. The president decided to bow to Democrats, suck up to populists on national security, and abandon Guaido.

Trump’s Twitter war and why Guaido is at a disadvantage. The president seems to think that he can play easy against bad men.
Democrats have one good and two bad infrastructure demands. They are the servants of a bigger state, Trump should be wary.

ISIS leader video, Relaxing and socialism, Beto's bad plan, France 2020 Democrats

Decoding the ISIS leader’s new video. It speaks to the groups evolving strategy and its desire to remain a state based project.

No, David Bentley Hart, we can’t relax about socialism. The need for scrutiny in socialism is a great one.

Beto O’Rourke’s climate change plan is an absurd socialist boondoggle. Also, his national security policy isn’t that hot either.

France, 2020 Democrats, and the better choice of Trump’s economy. The American people should look to what Democratic policies have meant in France.

Special Report

Highwayman Xi, Robert E. Lee, Secret Service, Trump versus Corbyn

Xi Jinping the highwayman hunts the world on China’s belt road. The BRI is a Chinese ponzi scheme designed only to serve Xi’s unilateral international order.

Robert E. Lee was a traitor and a great general. The Confederate commander took a bad hand and made it work for his government. Until he couldn’t.

Why the Secret Service doesn’t like cell phones near presidents. It’s about physical security and avoiding intelligence monitoring.

Donald Trump should meet Jeremy Corbyn and think of some monikers for the Labour leader. Corbyn is an anti-American who deserves no U.S. politeness.

Macron reforms, Amnesty ISIS, Hillsdale journalism

Emmanuel Macron’s yellow vest plan is doomed to fail. The president is doing too little on taxes, and basically nothing on structural reform and spending.

Amnesty International’s insane attack on the US military. Criticizing the operation to secure Raqqa from ISIS, Amnesty endorses utter delusion.

How Hillsdale College helps journalism by hiring Mollie Hemmingway. The lesson of the Mueller report is to get more versatility in journalism education.

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.

Sudan coup, Warren's economics, Assange extradition, Russian agent

Sudan coup is no silver bullet: the military leaders replacing Bashir are nearly as bad as him. Now the question is how the military addresses the protesters.

Elizabeth Warren outlines the next part of her plan to destroy the US economy. Warren’s 7 percent surcharge tax on US businesses is a recipe for capital annihilation.

Why Julian Assange won’t appear in a US courtroom any time soon. The English legal process governing extraditions is lethargic. Assange might avoid ending up on US soil.

The US should have charged Assange as a Russian agent who served the 2016 election attacks. Because he is.
