Putin's Tough Choice: China Or The West

Will Putin cave in to the demands of the West to renounce his (China/Iran) allies in exchange for the improved relation and the dropping of sanctions?

Obama Bequeaths A More Dangerous World

The world that President Obama bequeaths to President Trump may not have all the same dangers that Bush left to Obama but the post-Obama world has hazards that Obama did more to create than to resolve - and some of the new risks may be even scarier.

A Foreign Nation Did Interfere In A US Election...In 1980

It was October and the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate was faltering in the polls after the Democratic National Convention. The Republican Party’s presidential candidate began negotiating with a foreign government to cook up a scheme to embarrass the Democratic candidate. The scheme was successful and the Democratic candidate went on to lose the election to a Republican candidate who was feared by many for his unorthodox stance on several domestic and foreign issues...

Live Stream: Key Things To Watch For At General John Kelly's Confirmation Hearing

After an interesting morning of questioning by the Judiciary Committee of Senator Jeff Sessions, complete with numerous interruptions by disaffected, Hillary-supporting snowflakes seeking their 15 minutes of fame, Retired General John F.

Trump Picks Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson As Secretary Of State

In a move that is certain to infuriate those who see Trump as nothing more than a puppet of the Kremlin, moments ago NBC reported that Rex Tillerson, CEO of Exxon Mobil and late entrant into the SecState race, will be picked by Trump to serve as his next Secretary of State.

Putin Tried To Warn Us About Syria Three Years Ago, But Nobody Listened

As Russia and the United States approach arguably the most dangerous crossroads in history - and as Western media continues to crucify Russia for its actions within Syria - a closer look at the rationale Putin used for intervening in the Syrian war paints a sane explanation of how we ended up at this juncture of a global conflict.

Republican Congressman: "Thank God For Wikileaks - Doing The Job That MSM Won't"

Hours after Wikileaks announced that inexplicably Julian Assange's internet connection had been cut, South Carolina Congressman Jeff Duncan, a republican, on Monday cheered the release of hacked emails by WikiLeaks. “Let me be clear:  Thank God for Wikileaks — doing the job that MSM WON'T! #ASSANGE #wikileaks,” Duncan tweeted, referring to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

The Status Quo vs. Donald Trump

"...the corrupt status quo of both useless political parties are making a huge calculated error by coming together so publicly against Trump. By rallying so aggressively and passionately around Hillary Clinton, the worst of the worst from America’s oligarchy have succeeded in the impossible. They have made a billionaire reality tv star look like a counter culture iconoclast."

The New Iron Curtain - A Monument To Washington's Imperial Folly

A foreign army consisting of 31,000 soldiers from an anti-American alliance are conducting military “exercises” a few miles from San Diego. Hundreds of tanks converge on the Rio Grande, while jets from 24 countries converge in attack formation, darting through Mexican skies. It isn’t hard to imagine Washington’s response. Yet that’s precisely what has been happening on Russia’s border with the NATO alliance, as the cold war returns.

The State Department's Collective Madness

Over the past several decades, the U.S. State Department has deteriorated from a reasonably professional home for diplomacy and realism into a den of armchair warriors possessed of imperial delusions, a dangerous phenomenon underscored by the recent mass “dissent” in favor of blowing up more people in Syria. The neocons and liberal hawks who control the State Department – and are eagerly looking forward to a Hillary Clinton presidency – will never stop coming up with these crazy notions until a concerted effort is made to assess accountability for all the failures that that they have inflicted on U.S. foreign policy. Until then, the madness will continue and only grow more dangerous.

The Dreadful Kagan Clan - Hillary's Warmongers-In-Waiting

Not only does Hillary Clinton insist that social security benefits are sacrosanct and actually need to be increased, along with lowering the Medicare age to 50 years, she also insists that Washington remain the world’s policeman and imperial hegemon. In a word, a Clinton presidency would mean Big Government on both sides of the Potomac - a combined Warfare State and Welfare State that would positively bankrupt the nation during the next decade.
