Strategic Defense Initiative at 34: Building on Reagan’s Vision

Ed Feulner, When a politician promises something that “holds the promise of changing the course of human history,” we naturally assume it’s a typical overstatement. But when President Ronald Reagan said that on March 23, 1983, in reference to his Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), he was exactly right. His speech that day introduced Americans and

Democrats Evidence of Election Fix has been Exposed as the Fakest of Fake news

Jack Kerwick, The Democrats are hoping to break their spectacular, nearly nine year losing streak by forcing Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign. That he recused himself from an investigation into the alleged connections between the Russian government and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign is being chalked up by some as a victory. This is ludicrous.

Pro-Refugee Trudeau Set to Bite His Tongue on Trump Visit

More than two decades ago, with Donald Trump already atop a real-estate empire, a young Justin Trudeau set out to explore the world. He toured Europe and Africa with friends, hiding their beer from customs agents before boarding the Trans-Siberian railway to China. On the train, he sketched, read “War and Peace” and gazed at

Trump administration looks to divide Russia’s relations with Iran

The Trump administration is exploring ways to break Russia’s military and diplomatic alliance with Iran in a bid to both end the Syrian conflict and bolster the fight against Islamic State, said senior administration, European and Arab officials involved in the policy discussions.

Bukovsky: “McCarthyism” No Witch Hunt, Fully Justifiable

Diana West, The movers and shakers of today have little interest in digging for the truth. Who knows what one may come up with? You may start out with the communists, and end up with yourself. — Vladimir Bukovsky, Judgement at Moscow, Chapter 1 In 2009, Vladimir Bukovsky delivered a striking speech setting forth his ideas about why it

A Millennials’ Guide to Angela Davis and Other Stalinists

Lloyd Billingsley, “History cannot be deleted.” On Friday, January 20, Donald J. Trump was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States. The next day, the leftist hordes descended on Washington and cranked up the volume. C-SPAN identified one keynote speaker only as Angela Davis, so millenials, GenXers, and even baby boomers should understand

Pat Buchanan: Reagan and Trump: American Nationalists

Since World War II, the two men who have most terrified this city by winning the presidency are Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump.        And they have much in common.        Both came out of the popular culture, Reagan out of Hollywood, Trump out of a successful reality TV show. Both possessed the gifts of showmen —

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. Reagan (unlike Trump) was at least a two-term governor of California before being elected president. However, I do concede that both men were effective negotiators and already successful before winning the presidency.

Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro dies at age 90

Longtime Cuban leader Fidel Castro, the bearded, cigar-smoking Communist revolutionary who infuriated the United States, inspired both loyalty and loathing from his countrymen and maintained an iron grip on Cuban politics for almost 50 years, died Friday at the age of 90. Castro, who was the only leader most of his countrymen ever knew, outlasted
