  • President Trump: Start Hiring Ideological Allies

    Donald Trump was a political neophyte in June 2015. Those of us who backed him that summer – and who remain his core base to this day – did so due to his genuine love for America, his bare-knuckles style, and his insistence on uttering politically-incorrect truths. We believed in him, loved his independent mind, and adored his total disdain for political pieties and the supercilious elite. Nothing has changed. We still love him, but watching him hire so many people who reject his core beliefs has been enormously frustrating. Surrounding oneself with ideological clones is not always wise. Hiring...

    Frankfurt — The Americans accused the Chinese of being modern-day mercantilists who steal intellectual property. The Europeans accused the Americans of provoking a crisis in the world trading system, threatening the global economy. And the Chinese invoked Spider-Man. Unlike Spidey, the Chinese emissary said, America is not using its superpowers with great responsibility. The trash-talking by otherwise restrained diplomats took place at a normally dull occasion: a review of American trade policies at the World Trade Organization in Geneva.

    Donald Trump launched an unprecedented attack on Vladimir Putin for Russia's role in propping up the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad as he demanded urgent action to help the victims of what he called a "mindless" chemical attack. Syrian opposition activists and rescuers said on Sunday that a poison gas attack on a rebel-held town near the capital had killed at least 49 people, according to local estimates. Mr Trump took to Twitter on Sunday morning to condemn the reports and say that Mr Assad's backers would face a high price.

"The spread of bogus stories about the use of chlorine and other poisonous substances by (Syrian) government forces continues. Yet another such fabricated piece of information about an alleged chemical attack in Douma appeared yesterday," the ministry said in a statement.

    Liberal billionaire George Soros threatened President Donald Trump and suggested he wouldn't be around much longer last month, according to the Daily Wire. During a speech at the end of January at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, the Democratic kingpin suggested "dark forces" were involved, and would make Trump disappear by 2020. "Clearly I consider the Trump administration a danger to the world," Soros said. "But I regard it as a purely temporary phenomenon that will disappear in 2020 or even sooner." Soros, still upset he donated more than $30 million to Hillary Clinton's failed 2016 presidential campaign,...

    ABOARD THE PAPAL PLANE (Reuters) – Pope Francis said on Monday he was really afraid about the danger of nuclear war and that the world now stood at “the very limit”. His comment, made as he flew off for a visit to Chile and Peru, came after Hawaii issued a false missile alert that provoked panic in the U.S. state and highlighted the risk of possible unintended nuclear war with North Korea. Asked if he was worried about the possibility of nuclear war, Pope Francis said: “I think we are at the very limit. I am really afraid of this....

    Pope Francis admitted on Monday he was frightened by the prospect of an accidental nuclear apocalypse, as he began a weeklong visit to Chile and Peru to bolster a local Catholic Church riven by sex abuse scandals. “I think we are at the very edge,” the pope told reporters aboard his plane when asked about the threat of a nuclear war in the wake of a recent string of tests by North Korea and a false missile alert last week that sparked panic in the US state of Hawaii. “I am really afraid of this. One accident is enough to...

The notice about the briefing, scheduled for the Jan. 16, features a photograph of a mushroom cloud and notes that “planning...

It is for this reason that a growing number of former defense officials, scholars of military strategy and some members of Congress have begun calling for the elimination of ICBMs.

Speaking with the U.S. and South Korean counterparts at a meeting of Asian defense chiefs in the Philippines, Japanese Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera said “(The) threat posed by North Korea has grown to the unprecedented, critical and imminent level,” according to a Reuters report. “Therefore, we have to take calibrated and different responses to meet with that...

    On September 3, at exactly noon local time, North Korea detonated its sixth nuclear device purportedly releasing 140 kilotons of TNT equivalent, according to a recent U.S. intelligence estimate, and almost ten times greater than the U.S. nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima in August 1945.Shortly after the detonation, which triggered an artificial magnitude 6.3 earthquake, North Korea claimed that it successfully tested a thermonuclear bomb design that can be fitted on the Hwasong-14/KN20 intercontinental-range ballistic missile (ICBM), which was first tested on July 4 and is likely capable of reaching the continental United States.While the test of a hydrogen...

    Chinese Official Says China Might Invade Taiwan If “Peaceful Reunification Takes Too Long” In a recent interview Wang Zaixi (王在希), a former vice-chairman of China’s Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, said that Beijing might resort to the use of force if “peaceful re-unification” between China and Taiwan “takes too long”.

    A former commander of U.S. nuclear forces is leading a call for taking U.S. and Russian nuclear missiles off high alert, arguing that keeping them less ready for prompt launch would reduce the risk of miscalculation in a crisis. It also could keep a possible cyberattack from starting a nuclear war, he said, although neither Washington nor Moscow appears interested in negotiating an agreement to end the practice of keeping nuclear missiles on high alert. Retired Gen. James Cartwright said in an interview that “de-alerting” nuclear arsenals could foil cyber intruders by reducing the chance of firing a weapon in...
