With Iran in the news daily as tensions increase in the Persian Gulf over multiple tanker attacks, the Iranian resistance is raising the profile of their movement against the regime in Western capitals in Europe and the U.S. Shares
Several months back at the start of the trade tensions between the Trump White House and China, I spoke with Larry George, CEO of the Northwest Hazelnut Co., who was hopeful for a positive resolution to the negotiations. Mr. George saw the opportunity for a win-win for both American growers and the Chinese consumer, who adore Oregon hazelnuts due to their specific taste. Shares
I sat down yesterday in New York City with Ian Borg, the minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects for the island nation of Malta. Mr. Borg was in the city for meetings and graciously offered his time to discuss serious issues affecting the Mediterranean, such as migration and organized crime. Shares
For a media that has been obsessed with the narrative of Russian collusion in the U.S. for three years, and which has made Russian President Vladimir Putin out to be the Antichrist, it's interesting to see the Western press now spinning the narrative that the Kremlin in this case wants to "fight corruption" by backing the ACUM-Socialist coalition and allegedly '"does not want to interfere" in Moldova's affairs.
As President Trump has declared with his America First agenda, global economic rivalry is a national security issue. Those nations that fall behind economically could face military threats down the road, endangering their sovereignty. Shares
The Central Asian nation of Kazakhstan on Sunday will hold an early presidential election to choose the successor to Nursultan Nazarbayev, the country's one and only post-Cold War leader, who stepped down from power in March of this year. Despite the doubters out there, this is a historic opportunity for the Kazakh people and the region.
Recently, Fort Worth teacher Georgia Clark had the guts to tweet to President Trump that her school district was full of illegal aliens and drug dealers were on campus regularly. She was immediately fired. Shares
The Trump administration has made the decision to push for regime change in Iran, whether U.S. officials want to admit it publicly or not. There is no "negotiating" with the mullahs in Tehran, even if multiple American presidents in recent history have attempted to do just that, with disastrous results.
I was 16 when Ronald Reagan came into office. I was on the cusp of becoming politically aware, and interested in international affairs. Although I couldn't really explain why at that young age, I instinctively knew I was experiencing something really special living through the Reagan presidency. Shares
One of the underappreciated negative consequences of the Obama presidency has been a complete ideological change within America's armed forces. Shares
We've written extensively here about the absolute corruption and dual loyalties of the Obama administration. Our main point has been that to analyze Barack Obama's record, you cannot listen to his eloquent words, but have to discern the malign consequences of his actions, an Islamic caliphate flourishing in the Middle East being in the forefront.

Earlier this week, a memo surfaced in Ukraine, allegedly revealing how former Vice President Joseph R. Biden accepted an "unlawful benefit" from his son's financial ties to local oil and gas producer Burisma. Shares
The State Department is also knee deep in the Deep State with Obama holdovers working their seditious black magic in the cubicles of Foggy Bottom and around the world.
I have been a loyal Donald Trump supporter from almost day one, at least almost to the beginning of the primaries in 2015. So it's painful to write this, but the president's inaction in the face of Big Tech censorship is destroying America. Shares
The left doesn't want to admit it, however, the more time goes by, the more we need to realize that Barack Obama was an evil president. I say this because it is clear Mr. Obama attempted to destroy the one thing that separates America from most of the world and provides for its overwhelming success -- the rule of law. Shares
While Washington obsesses over the Russia-Trump collusion/obstruction narrative being endlessly bandied about by the media and the Democratic Party (even after the misfire of the Mueller Report's big gun for the left), the real story of the U.S.-Russia relationship -- and that of President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin -- is playing out this week in far away Venezuela.

I was glad to hear the president of the United States mention our national debt in a tweet this week regarding the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States and interest rate policy. His point was that if the Fed were to lower short term rates, and restart quantitative easing (in banana republics they call this printing money), then our economy would explode even higher and the debt to GDP ratio would not look that bad.

Thanks to President Trump's America First approach, the U.S. is now the world's biggest energy exporter. And that new reality is affecting more than just the price of a gallon of gas. Shares
Conservatives are being de-platformed, de-banked, and disenfranchised from the public debate. The White House has essentially done nothing. Congress of course has done nothing. Shares
Sometimes individual events occur that bring larger trends into stark perspective. The burning of Notre Dame Cathedral this week was one of those events. Shares
