Madness on the Potomac: Trump Administration Joins the Syrian Civil War

During the campaign President Donald Trump had at least one very sensible foreign policy belief: the U.S. should stay out of purposeless wars in the Middle East. Now his appointees are dragging us deeper into the Syrian conflict.

After the ISIS War, a US-Russia Collision?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

If America has decided to use its air power to shoot down Syrian planes attacking rebels we support, this could lead to a confrontation with Russia and a broader, more dangerous, and deadly war for the United States. How would we win such a war, without massive intervention? Is this where we are headed? Is this where we want to go?

Escalation? U.S. Marine Jet Downs Syrian Plane

Does the shooting down of the Syrian plane represent a dangerous “escalation” of America’s involvement in the Syrian civil war? So far, conservatives seem to be breaking against deepening American involvement in the Syrian civil war. Please tell us what you think by using the comments to register your opinion.

Christians Are Disappearing from the Middle East

Eric Metaxas, CNS News

The phenomenon of disappearing Mideast Christians is one of the most massive and under-reported stories of our time. The Center for the Study of Global Christianity at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary says that in 1910, 13.6 percent of the population of the Middle East was Christian. But after a century that saw the explosion of Christianity elsewhere in the world, by 2025, followers of Christ, if current trends hold, will constitute just over 3 percent of Middle Easterners.

EU Gun Grabbers Stymie Czech Plan To Defeat Muslim Terrorists

As of now the Czech Republic has some of the most lenient gun policies in Europe. Unfortunately for the people of the Czech Republic, the European Union has passed a new law that requires all potential gun buyers to go through a psychological check before they can buy a weapon and bans many common guns.

Obama Holdovers Successfully Sabotaging Trump's War Against ISIS

Until President Trump rids himself of those officials and advisers who do not share his foreign policy goals the internal coup against him will continue to the detriment of our war with the Islamic State and the broader success of his administration.

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.

The Trump Administration’s Human Rights Conundrum

Washington obviously can do little to “fix” any of these nations. But America could at least affirm the principle that governments should protect their people’s lives and dignity.

President Trump Needs A New National Security Advisor

President Trump and National Security Advisor General H.R. McMaster are allegedly meeting today to discuss the chain-of-command and General McMaster’s future at the White House. This would be a good time for General McMaster to leave the White House and return to the armored battlefield where he is so adept.

Obama FBI Employee Goes Rogue Marries ISIS Terrorist

The Daniella Greene case shows the incredible level of dysfunction at the Obama-Comey era FBI both in its security clearance procedures and, at the leadership and operational levels, in its understanding of the threat Islamism poses to America and constitutional liberty.

Think Things Can’t Get Worse In Syria?

Taking out Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad would mean we are now aligned with “partners” who include assorted Sunni Sharia-supremacists – including Turkey, Saudi Arabia, al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood – whose agenda is no less murderous and menacing than Assad’s.

Obama Advisers Suckering Trump Further Into Syrian Quagmire

If President Trump truly will not tolerate the Assad government using chemical weapons then he should take out the Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Center where they are made and managed, anything short of that is merely continuing the fantasies of John McCain and the halfhearted measures and follies of Barack Obama.

U.S. Should Favor Most Vulnerable Religious Refugees

Religions are not equal when it comes to evaluating refugees. There are non-sectarian reasons to favor members of minority faiths, especially in the Middle East where religious minorities have suffered disproportionately.

Changing Hearts and Minds to Combat Religious Persecution

U.S. officials have never felt comfortable confronting the crime of religious persecution. They have few answers to offer other than pressing unwilling governments to better protect politically unpopular minorities.

House Democrats Compromise American Intelligence Secrets Again

Chiefs of staff for dozens of Democratic lawmakers who employed four Muslim computer staffers were informed that a criminal probe was underway into their use of congressional information technology systems, including the existence of an external server to which House data was being funneled, and into the theft of and overbilling for computer equipment.

Kuwait Needs Economic Reform, But Democracy May Say No

Kuwait is one of the freest nations in the Persian Gulf, as well as one of America’s best friends. Yet its “liberalish” governance, as one Kuwaiti colleague described it, ironically impedes the adoption of market-oriented economic reforms necessary for the country’s prosperity.

Ft. Lauderdale Airport Terrorist Converted to Islam, Identified as Muslim Years Before Joining Army

Public records uncovered in the days after the massacre suggest Hammad (Santiago) is a radical Islamic terrorist who is seriously committed to Islam. Besides taking on a Muslim name before joining the US military, he recorded three Islamic religious songs, including the Muslim declaration faith, the Shahada: there is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger.

Connecting the Dots Between Mexican Border Corruption and Islam’s War on America

According to the Judicial Watch review of a new report released by Spain’s Defense Ministry, “Latin America represents an important region for Islamic radicalism because conditions enable the free, almost undetectable, movement of their members throughout the region.”

Connecting the Dots Between Boston, Columbus and Berlin

Recognizing that Islam is the threat, and implementing threat-based security procedures devoid of political correctness or ideological agendas is the only way to stop these attacks from continuing in what Muslims now consider to be “the era of total confrontation” with the West.

Trump Needs to Drain the Swamp at the Obama Pentagon

The neo-con counter to Trump’s “Make America Great Again” seems to be shaping up to be “Make Russia Evil Again.” If President-elect Trump wants to drain the swamp in DC, and formulate a new national security policy focused on winning cyberwarfare battles and eradicating ISIS and militant Islam, he should start by draining Obama’s Pentagon.
