    The disappearance of Saudi journalist and former kingdom insider Jamal Khashoggi sent shockwaves across the Middle East and Washington. On October 10, President Donald Trump said that the US was “demanding” answers after the writer went missing while visiting the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met Saudi Arabia’s King Salman on Tuesday. American Senators and congressmen have urged the White House to support an investigation into the missing man’s whereabouts and Vice President Mike Pence has offered FBI support. U.S.–Saudi relations, which have warmed under Trump after being on the rocks during the...
  • Kerry Should Be Prosecuted For Illegal Iran Meetings

    Foreign Policy: Recent comments by former Democratic presidential candidate, Secretary of State and Senator John Kerry lead to one inevitable conclusion: Making Kerry America's top diplomat was a huge error. Kerry has been seen a lot lately, largely because he's flogging a book, "Every Day Is Extra," seemingly everywhere in the media. He's doing lots of live interviews, some of them quite telling. In one, for instance, he calls President Donald Trump's time in office a matter of "life and death," and suggests that he would "bring a case against Donald Trump for the lives that will be lost" due...

    You know that Logan Act thing that the Dems occasionally got outraged about under Obama. Apparently it no longer exists, because John Kerry certainly acts like it doesn't. Next January, a report appeared that Kerry had met with a top negotiator for the PLO in London. The secret back-channel negotiator, Hussein Agha, was a close confidant of terrorist dictator Mahmoud Abbas, the racist PLO boss who around this same time had delivered a speech in which he cursed President Trump, shouting, “May your house be destroyed.” Agha was a frequent collaborator with Robert Malley, who allegedly ran Soros and Obama’s...

    Former Secretary of State John Kerry is being slammed for conducting shadow diplomacy with Iran after admitting to multiple meetings with Iranian officials behind the backs of Trump administration officials -- including over the scrapped nuclear deal. An administration official on Thursday told Fox News Kerry’s meetings are "shameful," pointing out what Iranian-backed militias are doing to kill and injure people in Syria, Iraq and Yemen. Other Republicans suggested it may not even be legal. “John Kerry is out giving advice to Iran about how to maneuver around what Donald Trump is doing; it's insidious,” Ari Fleischer, the former White...

    Wednesday on The View, the hosts gave a warm welcome to former Secretary of State under President Obama, John Kerry, giving him the chance to promote his new memoir, while lobbing softballs about the Mueller probe, the Iran Deal and his relationship with John McCain. New host Abby Huntsman didn’t even try to represent the conservative viewpoint she was hired to offer, eagerly asking Kerry if he was running for President in 2020: “Are you -- going to run for president? A lot of people think that you should. A lot of people think that you will,” she gushed. A...

    On Friday, US President Donald Trump did an about-face on his North Korea policy when he told Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to cancel his planned visit. For many North Korea and Iran analysts, this is the moment they have waited for: Will Trump stick to his guns and try to negotiate a tough deal with Pyongyang like he has said, even at the risk of his deal-cutting legacy being scattered to the wind? Or will he compromise more than he has said he would in order to secure a deal, even if it is less tough? If Trump stays...

    Washington (CNN)Iranian President Hassan Rouhani issued a challenge to President Donald Trump on Monday, saying the Islamic Republic would welcome talks with the US "right now." "I don't have preconditions. If the US government is willing, let's start right now," Rouhani said during an interview that aired on state television late Monday local time, just hours before the US renewed sanctions on Iran. "If there is sincerity, Iran has always welcomed dialogue and negotiations," Rouhani said. Trump's national security adviser John Bolton, when asked about the offer by CNN's Jake Tapper, dismissed it as possible "propaganda." "Let's see what really...

    In announcing the imposition of the sanctions against Iran promised back in May, President Trump tweeted on Tuesday: “The Iran sanctions have officially been cast. These are among the most biting sanctions ever imposed, and in November they will ratchet up to yet another level. Anyone doing business with Iran will NOT be doing business with the United States. I am asking for WORLD PEACE, nothing less!” On Monday the president explained why he was imposing the sanctions, and asking other nations to cooperate: “We urge all nations to take such steps to make clear that the Iranian regime faces...

Iran now knows that Trump means business. It knows that when Trump speaks of a new and better nuclear agreement that eliminates former President Barack Obama's Potemkin inspections of nuclear or ballistic missile sites and replaces them with real ones, he means it....the mullahs know that they are under extreme and increasing international and domestic pressure.

    Iran has chosen to sow discord and destruction throughout the Middle East and President Trump is fighting back. As of midnight, harsh sanctions on Iran have kicked in as part of the administration’s strategy to keep Tehran from achieving its goal of building a nuclear bomb. The Obama-era Iran deal did not moderate the regime’s actions as was hoped. In fact, it resulted in an economic gift that served to stoke Tehran’s involvement in Syria and Yemen. Iran continued to be a friend and sponsor to terror groups throughout the region. Now, the sanctions ban most transactions with Iran’s central...

    Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has made a big splash in Washington D.C. and the nation despite being a freshman Senator. From pushing for constitutional conservative principles in Congress to defeating leftists such as Senator Bernie Sanders in fierce verbal sparring on live television, from nearly winning the GOP nomination for President in 2016 to now standing by President Donald Trump in both up and down times, it’s been a busy first term for Senator Cruz. Among the 100 Senators in our nation’s upper chamber and the 51 Republicans currently there I have to say I believe Senator Cruz holds a...

    The Trump administration announced Monday the reimposition of sanctions on Iran that were lifted as part of a nuclear agreement with the country. The sanctions will take effect at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday and follow through on the order President Trump gave when he withdrew from the nuclear pact in May. "The United States is fully committed to enforcing all of our sanctions, and we will work closely with nations conducting business with Iran to ensure complete compliance. Individuals or entities that fail to wind down activities with Iran risk severe consequences," Trump said in a statement Monday. "The JCPOA, a...

    Iran has recently faced the largest wave of popular protest since the Green Movement of 2009, mainly focused on economic stagnation but also bleeding into more political issues of foreign policy, personal freedoms, and human rights. The rising wave of discontent is pushing the government to make some concessions. Just yesterday, the regime's security council approved the release of opposition figures Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi, leaders of the 2009 protest movement, from house arrest after seven years. This move illustrates the regime's unease with the rising pressure from the streets, but also shows that it has some tools...

    An Iranian military commander said on Thursday Donald Trump should address any threats against Tehran directly to him, and mocked the US president as using the language of "nightclubs and gambling halls". The comments by Maj-Gen Qassem Suleimani, who heads the Quds Force of Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guards, were the latest salvo in a war of words between the two countries. "As a soldier, it is my duty to respond to Trump’s threats. If he wants to use the language of threat, he should talk to me, not to the president [Hassan Rouhani]," Soleimani was quoted as saying by the...

    BEIRUT, July 26 (Reuters) - Iran's Quds force chief Qassem Soleimani warned U.S. President Donald Trump against war on Thursday, saying it would "destroy all that you possess", the website of Iran's Arabic language Al Alam TV reported. "You know that this war will destroy all that you possess. You will start this war but we will be the ones to impose its end. Therefore you have to be careful about insulting the Iranian people and the president of our Republic," Soleimani said in a speech, as reported by Al Alam in Arabic.
