    Trump Declares Dead the One-Sided, Unsigned, Un-Agreed-Upon, Non-Agreement

    On Tuesday night, Mark Levin was speaking of the Iran Nuclear deal that was just sent to the scrap heap by president Trump. To this Levin said it was a great decision. And he added that it was also a Statesmen’s decision with an accompanying Statesmen-like speech to the American people. I agree.

    However, as Mark continued, he said something I disagree with and which I think is quite important – ultimately the most important thing to be gleaned from this whole Obama/Kerry foreign policy scam.

    That is that this deal wasn’t and isn’t foreign policy. It’s not a deal, an agreement, a treaty or anything else. It was merely a wish list laid out by Obama and his anti-colonialist, anti-Semitic brothers and sisters – no different than ones crafted for Santa Claus. READ MORE...

  • Trump Was Right To Blow Up The Iran Deal

    Trump Was Right To Blow Up The Iran Deal

    For starters, it wasn’t a treaty.

    Like most of Barack Obama’s legacy, the Iran Deal was brittle and unsustainable because it was undertaken unilaterally. Even with the creation of a media echo chamber and the ugly, relentless attacks on critics, the former president was unable to pull together a consensus. The Obama administration circumvented that accountability. For that reason alone, it’s a good thing Trump nixed the deal.

    Even as John Kerry was acquiescing to one Iranian demand after the next, a number of senators explained to the despots in Tehran that such a deal could be easily scuttled. Nearly every Republican candidate running for the presidency in 2016 — not to mention nearly every GOP candidate running for the Senate — promised to withdraw from (or renegotiate) the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action if they won.

    The College Conservative: Tillerson Out

    On Tuesday President Trump excused ex-Chevron CEO Rex Tillerson from his position as Secretary of State. Trump tweeted on the matter: “Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State. He will do a fantastic job! Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service! Gina Haspel will become the new Director of the CIA, and the first woman so chosen. Congratulations to all!”

    For months rumors have been floating that Trump wanted to replace Tillerson with CIA Director Mike Pompeo. Until now the White House had denied to comment on the hearsay, however Tuesday the rumors were verified. This comes on the heels of Trump agreeing to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un by the end of May. READ MORE...

    Nigeria helpless as Boko Haram trashes entire villages

    Boko Haram on Sunday attacked residents of Attagara, a village in northeast Nigeria near the Cameroon border. Like many villages, Attagara residents were frustrated by the impotence and helplessness of the Nigerian army and security forces to protect them, so they formed vigilante groups to defend themselves. On Sunday, the Attagara vigilante groups immediately came out and retaliated, killing several of the Boko Haram militants.

    On Tuesday, men dressed in army uniforms arrived in Attagara with about 200 motorcycles said they had arrived to protect the residents asked the villagers to gather in the church. Once they were all inside, the men, who were militants in disguise, surrounded the church, killed everyone, and burnt down the entire village. READ MORE...

  • History repeats: the Lessons of 1914

    A recent issue of the German historical magazine Geo Epoche interviewed Christopher Clark, author of the definitive diplomatic history of the events leading to World War I, The Sleepwalkers. In the interview, Dr. Clark said, “The world in which we now live is becoming ever more like that of 1914.”

    Well, no and yes. We do not have two unequal power blocks—the Entente had three Great Powers; the Central Powers only one, Germany, plus a has-been and a wannabe, Austria-Hungary and ever-treacherous Italy—eyeing each other with apprehension. We do not live in a world where, thanks to the advantage conveyed by early mobilization, everyone’s military has a hair trigger. We do not have a major player whose strategic objective requires a war among the Great Powers, as France’s objective of retaking Alsace and Lorraine did then. READ MORE...

  • State Department finally gives an explosive answer

    The State Department bureau tasked with secretly sending to embassies plastic and liquid explosives operates under the guidance of Under Secretary of State for Management Patrick F. Kennedy, whom a congressional panel last year separately found to be largely responsible for security lapses in Benghazi, WND has learned.

    A series of WND articles recently exposed the purchase and international transport of many hundreds of pounds of plastic, sheet and linear explosives along with thousands of containers of high-energy liquid explosives. READ MORE...

  • (VIDEO) Krauthammer: Obama’s Afghanistan Announcement ‘An Act of Personal Narcissism’

    On Tuesday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer reacted to President Barack Obama’s announcement earlier in the day of his plans Tuesday to withdraw all combat troops from Afghanistan by the end of 2016.

    “I think it’s worse than a political act to announce the leaving,” Krauthammer said. “It’s kind of an act of personal narcissism. When this was talk about a few months ago in the press, there was a mention of the fact that if the full withdrawal happened in 2016, that would allow Obama to leave office having fulfilled a promise to liquidate the wars. I mean, is that how we’re now setting the strategy of the United States of America – in a war zone where so many have died and so much treasure and blood has been spent so a president can leave office looking good? It’s certainly been designed as has been suggested by Kelly Ayotte and others to help the Democrats in the 2016 election, but why would you announce it in the first place?” READ MORE...

  • Benghazi 101: College Students Are Clueless About Terrorist Attack

    College students have plenty to say about energy, finance and economics, but virtually nothing about the four Americans killed in the Benghazi terrorist attack or the surrounding controversy.

    As Dan Joseph of the Media Research Center determined, that could be because students don’t know much about what happened in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012.
    Joseph went to George Mason University in Fairfax, Va., located 30 minutes outside Washington, D.C., to ask a few simple questions.

    When he asked them who sings the hit “Happy,” students came up with the answer easily: Pharrell Williams. READ MORE...

  • Globalism’s Failed Promise

    The crisis in Ukraine and the missing Malaysian Airlines Flight have done more than expose weaknesses in regional security and international air safety arrangements. They have exposed fundamental flaws in the bedrock assumptions underlying that secular faith known as globalization.

    George Ball, liberal State Department and Wall Street apparatchik, stated the first axiom of globalism in his famous 1967 testimony to a congressional Joint Economic Committee when he declared nation states “obsolete.” This has been unquestioningly accepted as an article of faith by the smart set. Western elites have come to believe nations will wither away in a brave new economically integrated world. READ MORE...
