Trump Could Be One of America's Great Foreign Policy Presidents

David P. Goldman, PJ Media

Liberal media is aghast at the president's rough handling of Canadian boy-band frontman Justin Trudeau, and his confrontational approach overall at the Group of Seven summit. When the dust settles, though, Trump may accomplish what eluded Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama: a stabler and safer world without the need for millions of American boots on the ground. He well may go down in history as one of our great foreign policy presidents. It's not in the bag, but it is within sight.

Conservative Senators Must Oppose Gina Haspel For CIA Director

In her testimony yesterday, Gina Haspel gave conservatives a rare insight into how operatives of the Deep State think and work – and it should scare everyone who saw it or has read about it. What’s more, Haspel gave conservatives concerned about Russia, China and the war Islam has declared on the West absolutely no reason to vote for her.

Senator Rand Paul Chooses Policy Over Politics On Pompeo Vote

The easy political move for Senator Paul would have been to vote “NO” on Mike Pompeo and claim it was a vote based on principle, the tougher and better move for the country, and Senator Paul’s policy goals, was to get the commitments on policy and vote “YES.”

Saudi Arabia Promotes Radical Wahhabism, Creates Breeding Ground for Terrorists

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has been consolidating power while posing as a reformer. However, while limiting the influence of fundamentalist clerics at home, he has not yet dropped the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s longstanding support for radical Islamism abroad.

Navigating the Middle East Mess Left by Obama and Bush

If President Trump is serious about countering Iranian aggression and repairing the mess in the Middle East left by Obama and Bush, then steps must be taken across the region, otherwise Iran will assert political and economic dominance over the entire northern tier of the Middle East and become the Middle East’s Shi’ite superpower.

What Dubya missed about nationalism

F.H. Buckley, New York Post

There’s a logic to nationalism that demands an affection for fellow citizens of every kind, and that asks us to look out for the less fortunate amongst us. The pure libertarian who doesn’t think his government owes anything to fellow citizens in distress might be faithful to his right-wing ideals, but he’s not much of a nationalist. Along with Jefferson’s liberty and equality, nationalism also embraces an ideal of fraternity.

Trump Makes The DC Establishment Crazier Every Day

So, who’s crazy? President Trump, who is trying to undo the national security disasters shady Senator Bob Corker facilitated on behalf of Barack Obama, or establishment Republicans, like Michael Gerson, who take the side of the shady Senator from Tennessee?

AG Sessions Before The Senate Intelligence Committee: It’s A Hearing About Nothing

President Trump In Saudi Arabia: Just One Important Thing Missing

There was one key point that was missing from the President’s public remarks that we hope he made behind the closed doors of his meetings with the Saudis and other leaders of Muslim-majority countries.

Hire Bush’s People, Get Bush’s Wars

The notion that by sending a few thousand more American troops to Afghanistan we can broker a peace and some sort of coalition with the Taliban is a folly born of desperation to save political face, not win the war Islam has declared on the West.

Conservatives Want A 'No Excuses Budget' From The GOP Congress

We urge our conservative friends and readers to call their Representatives and Senators (the Capitol switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to demand funding of the border wall in the soon-to-be-passed continuing resolution. Tell them no excuses; no border wall funding – means a no vote.

What President Trump Doesn’t Get About the Freedom Caucus

What President Trump doesn’t seem to understand is that when establishment Republicans talk about “governing” and “legislating” what they really mean is growing government at a slightly slower pace or to benefit a different set of cronies than the Democrats would if they were in power.

Dubya Disappoints — Big Time

Judah Friedman, The American Spectator

From where do you get the nerve to speak up now? Why not speak up when you were being attacked and blamed for everything that ails mankind for the past 16 years? Donald Trump said you lied, they said you were Hitler. Why so defensive now? Is it because you did lie? You think the inauguration “was some weird s…”? Well, how about your presidency? That former president “was some weird s….” You think with that “innocent” mind that if President Trump is worse than you, the left will forget about you? Is it some weird sense of relief you are experiencing?

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
On tax reform, economic growth, reducing the size and scope of government and many other areas President Trump has indicated he wants to pass a bold conservative agenda.

With Flynn Out Islamist Sympathizers In At Trump White House?

Mike Flynn was clear-eyed about the threat Islam poses to constitutional liberty and America’s Judeo-Christian culture. Whoever conned President Trump into saying that he thought Islam has been “kidnapped by radical groups” did so by failing to tell him that he was meeting with a representative of one of the chief kidnappers – the Wahhabis of the Saudi royal family.

Time for U.S. To Leave Afghanistan

It would be wonderful if the U.S. could create a liberal future for Afghans who desire to escape the past. But that task is beyond Washington’s capabilities and cannot justify expending more American lives and monies.
