Memo to Trump: Can’t We Learn from the Roman Model?

While the world is focused on the upcoming meeting between President Trump and dictator, Kim Jung Un, attention on what Iran, North Korea’s closest ally, is doing is absent from the front-page news coverage. Count me among those who were appalled by the eight years of the Neville Chamberlain-like appeasement model peddled around the globe by the Obama administration. President Trump, we are greatly heartened by your total reversal of such a failed approach to foreign policy. But can we please have a more serious and consistent approach to the Middle East and especially now in Syria?

Is Trump Partnering with China to Bring Down the Kim Dynasty?

Now that President Trump has accepted Kim Jong Un’s invitation to meet, it is worth remembering the events of October 11th and 12th of 1986 when Ronald Reagan and the leader of the Soviet Union, Mikael Gorbachev, met at a summit meeting in Reykjavik Iceland.

Memo to Trump Haters – This President Just Might Save Your Lives

It seems not have occurred to the viewers of CNN, to Anderson Cooper and to the endless guest commentators who form the anti-Trump media that, if they are successful in paralyzing this presidency via some form of legal jeopardy, their own lives could be imperiled.

Please Reconsider and Recognize a Free Kurdistan – A Letter to President Trump and Secretary Tillerson

While most of the media was obsessing over the sexual predations of Harvey Weinstein and the NFL freefall brought on by its own pitifully misinformed “kneelers,” it failed again in its responsibility to understand and fully report on a huge story.

Trump’s Pivot in Afghanistan – A Reality Check

Now President Trump, in what was his most lauded speech since he announced his run for president, has committed an unspecified number of new soldiers to the fight and the United States to a new strategy in Afghanistan.  Inevitably, his critics on the left and even some on the right questioned the wisdom of this, given that the sixteen-year Afghan campaign makes it America’s longest war and one that we’ve lost because roughly 50% of the country is now in the hands of our enemies.

Trump & My Main Character – Western Civilization

It seems that only a President Trump could proclaim, “Let us all fight like the Poles, for freedom, for our country, and for God,” and still provoke an avalanche of attacks from the left and its legions of media allies.  His speech was his finest so far because it drew the left and the right out, compelled us to respond, and was a defining moment, especially for them.

Cleaning Up Obama’s Wartime Messes – 5 Moves Trump Can Make to Succeed

In early April of this year, at a joint news conference with King Abdullah of Jordan, Trump said Syria is now his responsibility, added that Syria had crossed "more than a red line," and that he inherited a worldwide mess and intended to fix it. Predictably, this caused the “destroy-Trump” media, from CNN to the [...]

The Economics of War

As the world watches with increasing apprehension the stand-off between North Korea and the US, wondering if it might be the new Cuban Missile Crisis, it is important to note that at the heart of most wars are economic forces.
