Post-JFK, What Will the CIA Do to President Trump?

Jacob G. Hornberger, In a truly remarkable bit of honesty and candor regarding the U.S. national-security establishment, new Senate minority leader Charles Schumer has accused President-elect Trump of “being really dumb.” Was Schumer referring to Trump’s ideology, philosophy, or knowledge about economics or foreign policy? None of the above. According to an article in The

3 Lessons on the 25th Anniversary of the Soviet Union’s Fall

Jamie Glazov, December 25 marked the 25th anniversary of the collapse of the Soviet Union. On this occasion, it is urgent for us to reflect on 3 key lessons that the fall of the Evil Empire provided. They are lessons that the new incoming Trump administration must put into action immediately vis-à-vis our enemy in

Trump and Reagan: Walking a Different Walk

Matt Lewis,    President-elect also provokes and upsets, but perhaps with purpose. I normally scoff when people compare Donald Trump to Ronald Reagan.

People may decide to vote for one of these candidates, but apparently they are not proud of their choice. It is astonishing that some people think that the answer to the problems of ObamaCare

Despite Slime Thrown by Media, Dems, GOP Traitors, Trump Can Still Win

Charles Hurt, LAS VEGAS — Donald Trump is still in this race, and he can still win it. Obviously, he has had a rough couple of weeks. Democrats and the Clinton campaign — by which I mean the media — have thrown more slime and dirt at the Republican presidential nominee than any other politician in

Ken Blackwell: Trumped Up

If you rely on press coverage of the presidential race you probably think everything is fine in America. No foreign threats. No domestic crises. No budget or crime problems.
