Yesterday they told us that President Trump was intent on war – he was about to invade Korea¸ unleash “fire and fury,” and millions would die. Today many of these very same people are telling us that President Trump has been “snookered” by the wily Kim Jong-un, who doesn't really mean all the ...
Surely there has never been a presidential peroration as filled with contradictions – not to mention regrettable rhetoric – as President Donald J. Trump's speech to the nation explaining why he backtracked on his campaign promise to get us out of Syria. Particularly striking was this bit of doubletalk: “To Iran ...

I apologize for the brevity of this column: I'm getting my tri-weekly anti-cancer treatment at a hospital in San Francisco. Yet I didn't want to leave my readers in the lurch, so here I am, trying to explain why I do what I do – because it requires some explanation. After all, why write about foreign policy at all?
A child could see through the fake “chemical attack” supposedly launched by Bashar al-Assad just as his troops defeated the jihadists and Trump said he wanted out of Syria. But our President can't, which raises the question: is he as stupid or stupider than George W. Bush? Or is he crazy? The bad news ...
The other day President Trump told his audience at a rally in Ohio that US troops are leaving Syria “very soon.” “Let others take care of it,” he said, “it's time to build up our own country. It's time to bring them home.” The foreign policy Establishment, the military, and the pro-jihadist “humanitarian ...
Justin Raimondo pointed out that the Novichok class nerve agent has not been in Russia's hands and hasn't been since 1991. The facility that produced Novichok is in Uzbekistan. “Uzbekistan was no longer a part of the Soviet Union: the country declared its independence on August 31, 1991. After that ...

President Trump's Korean peace initiative is the most significant US diplomatic effort since the end of the cold war: if successful, it means the end of an era in northern Asia. The Koreans realize this; the Chinese realize this; it's only the American punditocracy that just doesn't get it. There are a few reasons ...
The appointment of John Bolton as President Trump's National Security Advisor – his third so far – is bad news for anti-interventionists, but hardly the catastrophe #TheResistance is making it out to be. I've covered Bolton's crazed ideology of perpetual conflict in this space on several occasions – you'll ...
Why is the US national security Establishment – the CIA, the FBI, the Dr. Strangeloves – engaged in open warfare against the President? Why, ever since well before Trump's stunning victory, has the political class done everything in its power to destroy him? We've never seen this kind of thing before – at ...
While I hate to dispel the aura of gloom and doom that the various factions – NeverTrumpers, Beltway quasi-libertarians, Californians, etc. – are exuding here in the Age of Trump, I bear really disappointing good news. To begin with, the nuclear war all and sundry were predicting and warning against, which ...

Most of my regular readers – indeed, all of them – know one thing by now: if you've come here for the usual bullshit, rah-rah for Our Team conventional wisdom, you're bound to be disappointed. There are plenty of other places to go for that: I won't name them, but you get the idea. Here I try to challenge my ...
What in the name of all that's holy is going on in Syria, where the US has indicated it intends to keep US troops indefinitely – or maybe not. Here's one report: “On February 11, Secretary of Defense James Mattis stressed that, following the group's defeat, there is no plan for a deeper U.S. commitment in ...
One by one, the plaster gods fall, cracked and crumbled on the ground: the latest is Bernie Sanders, the Great Pinko Hope of the (very few) remaining Democrats with a modicum of sense who reject the “Russia! Russia! Russia!” paranoia of Rep. Adam Schiff and what I call the party's California Crazies.
The indictment handed down by Robert Mueller against 13 Russians connected to the Internet Research Agency, a Russian-owned- and- operated clickbait farm, is the capstone of my case that we have indeed entered Bizarro World, an alternate universe where up is down, black is white and truth is a ...
The personal and the political often meet and merge – and, in my case lately, this has certainly been quite true. I won't go into the details of my recent cancer diagnosis, which I wrote about here, except to say that it has certainly intensified and sharpened my perceptions of what's wrong – and right – with the ...
Oh, the virtue-signaling was hot and heavy as conservative and ostensibly “libertarian” media outlets competed to see who come up with the most self-righteously abusive rhetoric to describe North Korean Politburo member Kim Yo Yong, sister to Kim Jong Un. BuzzFeed grabbed the prize with “a garbage ...
As Vice President Mike Pence made a fool both of himself and the country he is supposed to be representing at the Olympic Games by refusing to stand for the athletes of any nation other than the US, back at home the Washington Post was reporting on a President Trump who appears to have nothing in ...
While the population of Hawaii dove under manhole covers, and #TheResistance screeched that The Orange Monster had finally done it and forced Kim Jong Un to nuke the island paradise, it took Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, the levelheaded, and quite personable representative from that state, to issue a ...
Poor Nikki Haley: she doesn't get that having presidential ambitions and actually being the President are two different things! She went ahead and announced new sanctions on Russia – and was promptly contradicted by the White House, which averred that Nikki is “confused,” and that no new sanctions ...
If President Trump is “Putin's puppet,” as the loonies of #TheResistance claim, then why is the Russian leader making speeches threatening to destroy the United States with “invincible” nuclear weapons – and illustrating his threat with a video rendition of a Russia ICBM circling the globe and hitting Florida ...
