Rep. Justin Amash Votes For Pro-United Nations Resolution Urging War Against Iran

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) voted in favor of a resolution urging crippling sanctions against the Iranian people while calling for the United Nations to play a role in toppling the Islamic Republic of Iran. House Resolution 676 (H.Res.676) was approved by every House member except for Reps. Walter Jones (R-NC) and Thomas Massie (R-KY). Those legislators are frequent associates of Amash, who decided to stray from the liberty-minded Reps and vote with the war party on this resolution. H.Res.676 “calls on all democratic governments and institutions to clearly support the Iranian people’s right to live in a free society” and… Keep Reading

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

You’re more than likely familiar with Aesop’s brief fable of a mouse and a lion. If you’ve lived under a rock your whole life I’ll bring you up to speed: A mouse convinces a lion to spare his life in exchange for the promise of a future favor. Cue the future. The lion finds himself trapped in a hunter’s net and the mouse responds to his roar and saves him from the net. It’s a quaint story with a timeless message, that is, a kindness is never wasted. It’s a nice thought but we don’t live in a fable, we… Keep Reading

President Trump Offers Nothing But Hot Air For His Disingenuous UN Speech

President Donald Trump gave an “America First” speech in front of the United Nations today, speaking out in favor of national sovereignty, deriding the evils of socialism and communism, and calling for other countries to contribute more for global security. However, examining Trump’s record against his rhetoric shows that his speech today consisted of mostly hot air. “As President of the United States, I will always put America first, just like you, as the leaders of your countries will always, and should always, put your countries first,” Trump said toward the beginning of his speech. However, Trump’s foreign policy has… Keep Reading

United Nations Appoints Islamic Dictatorship To Women’s Rights Commission

The United Nations (UN) is showing their commitment to the ongoing struggle for women’s rights throughout the world by including an Islamic dictatorship on their Commission on the Status of Women. They recently announced that Saudi Arabia would be added to the body. The UN had previously made the Saudi Arabian ambassador, Faisal bin Hassan Trad the head of a key human rights panel a couple years back. This outraged watchdog groups, but the UN was oblivious to those concerns and apparently considers Saudi Arabia to be a crucial vanguard for human rights for their organization. Saudi Arabia is an… Keep Reading

The Trump Doctrine Takes Shape

The concept of Presidential Doctrine dates back to when James Monroe adopted a posture of anti-European colonialism in the western hemisphere. Since that time many presidents have come and gone without leaving a signature stamp on the attitude and behavior of our nation vis a vis foreign policy though many have at most sought to merely modify pre-existing positions. Theodore Roosevelt took Monroe’s doctrine and mutated it into the Roosevelt Corollary which would later be reversed by his fifth cousin, Franklin Roosevelt who adopted a Good Neighbor policy toward those nations in the Central and South America. In relatively short… Keep Reading

Tear Down The UN And Build The Wall

Last Wednesday, it was announced that, by way of executive fiat, the United States would begin scaling back its financial support of the United Nations (UN). It was the same day our new President signed an order which jump-starts the construction of his long promised wall along the US-Mexico border. At face value it would seem these two imperatives bare no similarity except for the expanded exertion of executive hegemony over our national governance. There’s more to this picture than meets the eye. For too long the United States has sacrificed its sovereignty on the altar of globalism, all at… Keep Reading

Today In History: United Nations

October 24, 1945 – The United Nations is founded in San Francisco as a very well-intentioned check against the excesses of failed states and colonial imperialism. The Weimar Republic, left to its own devices, had swept Hitler’s Nazi Party into power with a mere quarter of the popular vote. The fanatical regime of Premier Tojo bowled over the moderates in Japan, bringing the military to power with its intent to enslave the surrounding region in the name of the Empire. This recipe left the world ripe for the inevitable collapse into total war. The United Nations, we are told, must… Keep Reading
