President Trump Sides With Saudi Arabia, Expresses “Great Confidence” In Islamic Dictatorship

The entrenched political regime is undergoing massive upheaval in Saudi Arabia. The Islamic dictatorship, one of the world’s worst human rights violators, has been shaken as at least 10 princes and other royals were arrested recently. This prompted President Donald Trump to voice his wholehearted support for the familiar ally of the U.S. “I have great confidence in King Salman and the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, they know exactly what they are doing,” Trump said in a series of Tweets as he traveled throughout Asia. “Some of those they are harshly treating have been ‘milking’ their country for years!”… Keep Reading

Bannon: Turkey “Biggest Danger” For The United States, Iran “Not Even Close”

Nationalist leader Steve Bannon slammed U.S. allies Turkey and Qatar in an interview with Saudi newspaper Asharq al-Awsat on Saturday. “Turkey is the biggest danger for us,” Bannon declared. “No, not even close to Iran,” he continued, waving his hand in dismissal of the popular notion that Iran and North Korea are the greatest threats the United States faces abroad. “We don’t read well what is going on in Turkey right now, under [Turkish President] Erdogan,” Bannon said. “This is an issue I am going to pursue hard.” Keep Reading

American Foreign Policy Goes Horribly Wrong As Tehran Seizes Control Of Baghdad

Confusion is a powerful tool. Per media reports that revealed that the Iraqi federal government began operations to take control over the region of Iraqi Kurdistan, a lot of confusion still looms. Within the Beltway, people are lost and questioning whether or not the Trump Administration made the best decision to partake in a stance of neutrality in the Iraqi-Kurd dispute. However, the only thing that can be taken seriously is the fact that many in the international community—including President Donald Trump and the leadership of the United Nations—are non-committal to either side. But, something suggests otherwise. Never mind this… Keep Reading

U.S. Remains Silent After Iran And Iraq Sign Agreement To Strengthen Military Alliance

The Defense Ministers of Iraq and Iran have united to sign a pact to fight in a joint effort against “terrorism and extremism,” and the Trump administration–a hostile critic of the Iranian regime–is silent thus far. Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan and Iraqi Defense Minister Erfan al-Hiyali came together on Sunday to sign a memorandum of understanding pertaining not only to fighting terror but also other shared common goals such as border security and logistics. This marks a watershed moment of diplomacy between the frequently hostile nations. “Extending cooperation and exchanging experiences in fighting terrorism and extremism, border security, and… Keep Reading

Trump Announces New Iranian Sanctions That May Jeopardize Obama’s Nuclear Deal

The Trump administration has announced a new regime of sanctions against Iran to push back against their ballistic missile program. Critics believe these new sanctions may jeopardize the Iranian nuclear deal that was one of former President Obama’s signature accomplishments. “Even as we continue to work to prevent Iran from ever obtaining a nuclear weapon, we cannot look away while Iran threatens our country and our allies in ways beyond their nuclear threat,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said to reporters today. The sanctions will be aimed at 18 entities and people who the United States believes to be… Keep Reading

Trump Administration Revives The Bush Doctrine, Calls For Regime Change In Iran

Any person hoping that the Trump administration would depart from the long-standing foreign policy consensus of Washington D.C. should be sorely disappointed by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s congressional testimony this week. “I would tell you that we certainly recognize Iran’s continued destabilizing presence in the region, their payment of foreign fighters, their export of militia forces in Syria, in Iraq, in Yemen,” Tillerson said to the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Wednesday. Tillerson apparently finds it problematic that Iranian forces are working to fight ISIS throughout the Middle East. The Trump administration funnels weapons to states such as Saudi… Keep Reading

Qatar’s Leader Suggests Coup Against Trump, Throws Arab NATO Proposal Into Doubt

Qatari Emir Hamad Al-Thani has thrown the Trump administration’s Arab NATO proposal into disarray by apparently suggesting a coup against President Trump and sparking up a feud with other members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). Al-Thani stated that while Qatar’s relationship with the United States remains fairly good, there are “tensions“, and he believes “the situation will change because of the judicial investigations into the President’s abuses.” The Emir’s surprising remarks strongly  suggest that Qatar believes Trump’s grip on power is tenuous and that there is a strong possibility he may be impeached or forced to resign. His description of Trump’s… Keep Reading

A Lesson From The Tripolitan War

In the west, people tend to have short memories. Typically this isn’t a problem because most lapses in memory tend to be centered around the mundane: Where you left your car keys, picking up the dry-cleaning, the date of your third cousin’s wedding to the Shriner who resembles Dwight Yoakam, only uglier – if you can imagine that. With any luck you’ll find your keys, get to the dry-cleaner, and, hopefully, you chose something more becoming to wear to the nuptial ceremony than a leisure suit. These things are easily understood and forgiven, if not completely relatable. The leisure suit…… Keep Reading

US Will Give Saudi Arabia Nuclear Technology In Deal Pushed By Top Trump Advisors

Several Trump administration officials are pushing a diplomatic deal that would give Saudi Arabia nuclear technology for civilian purposes, according to Mike Cernovich, the independent journalist who broke the stories about Susan Rice spying on Trump officials and H.R. McMaster wanting a massive ground war in Syria. National Security Advisors H.R. McMaster and Dina Powell, along with Chief Economic Advisor Gary Cohn, are all pressuring President Donald Trump to accept the deal in preparation for a ground war in Syria, according to some sources close to Cernovich. Trump, however, is reluctant to go through with the deal. Keep Reading

The New Colossus Criteria

When Emma Lazarus wrote The New Colossus in 1883 she may or may not have been aware that, 6,500 miles to the east in the Arabian Peninsula, the Al Saud were clashing with their bitter rivals, the al-Rashids from the city of Hayil. Things didn’t go well for the Al Saud and, consequently, they were driven from Ndaj into exile, eventually settling in Kuwait. It’s a fascinating story and perhaps Miss Lazarus would have agreed. Warring factions and power struggles aren’t unique to Islam. For centuries, bitter rivalries between the monarchical governments of Europe tormented the continent with near non-stop bloodshed.… Keep Reading

Obama, Rhodes, Iranian Nukes And Presidential Lies

It’s For Your Own Good Elected on a wave of goodwill, hope and change, the Obama administration sought out opportunities to not only “fundamentally transform America,” but to “restore America’s standing in the world.” These efforts included changes to the ways the administration addressed both allies and enemies alike. High up on the Obama regime’s list – even before the 2008 election – was outreach to the rogue state of Iran, well known as the predominant sponsor of terrorism in the Middle East and around the globe, and a threat for nuclear proliferation. Early on in the Obama tenure, domestic… Keep Reading

Cruz To Liberty Movement: No Softballs

Nearly two weeks ago, just prior to his appearance at Steve King’s Iowa Freedom Summit, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz carved out some time to meet with leading liberty activists from around Iowa. The low-key meeting, held in Des Moines, was many activists’ first time to meet the libertarian-leaning Tea Party firebrand. It was also Cruz’s first time fielding questions from a crowd comprised almost exclusively of members of the thriving Iowa Liberty Movement. Cruz opened with high praise for former Rep. Ron Paul’s rapidly-maturing political army. “The power, the energy of the Liberty Movement is inspirational,” said Cruz. “I think… Keep Reading
