American Troops to Leave Germany: Is It Goodbye or Just Auf Wiedersehen? The continued presence of tens of thousands of American military personnel in Europe seventy-five years after the end of the Second World War is rarely questioned either by politicians or the mainstream media.

Trump Unloads on Bolton After Bolton Unloads on Trump John Bolton's new memoir "The Room Where It Happened," which came out two days ago in spite of White House attempts to block it, is the standard kiss and tell that senior American politicians and officials tend to write to make money for their retirement.

America's Recessional: Time to Bring the Troops Home It is past time for Donald Trump to make a bold move. End the foreign wars, shut down the overseas bases and bring the soldiers home. Spend tax dollars to improve the lives of Americans, not to fight wars for Saudis and Israelis.

Trump the Peace Candidate? This President Abhors International Treaties The Donald Trump White House is currently considering detonating a nuclear weapon. It would be the first "test" of a nuke since 1992 and is clearly intended to send a message that those weapons sitting around in storage will be available for use.

Toothless Congress Fails to Limit Presidential War Powers The American people are stuck with a president who believes that he has the authority to use military force as he sees fit. When things are going badly domestically, as with the coronavirus, a war can serve as a great distraction and a demonstration of strong leadership. Let us hope that no one puts that idea into Donald Trump's head.

Virginia Goes Zionist Politicians, bureaucrats and media talking heads have long turned a blind eye to legislation and policies that benefit the state of Israel to the detriments of United States' interests. The U.S. Treasury is plausibly describable as a gift that never stops giving to the people and governments of Jewish state.

Who Made Coronavirus? Was It the U.S., Israel or China Itself? If it is correct that the virus had either been developed or even produced to be weaponized, it would further suggest that its escape from the Wuhan Institute of Virology Lab and into the animal and human population could have been accidental.

Explaining Syria Ambassador James Jeffrey maintains that "Russia needs to change its policies." That is not correct. It is the United States that must change its policies by getting out of Syria and Iraq while also stopping the deference to feckless "allies" Israel and Saudi Arabia that has produced a debilitating cold war against both Iran and Russia.

Why Both Republicans and Democrats Want Russia to Become the Enemy of Choice Donald Trump's erratic rule has certainly dismayed many of his former supporters, but the Democratic Party is offering nothing but another helping of George W. Bush/Barack Obama-establishment war against the world. But the argument that it is essential to do so because of Russia lurking is complete nonsense.

Killing Free Speech in America Free speech is free speech, no matter how loathsome or misguided. Government officials should be allowed to express private opinions outside the parameters of their public responsibilities, just as students at a university should be able to invite speakers to controversial conferences or seminars without requiring those invited to sign a paper pledging that they will not criticize a certain country.

The Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act: Why Washington Is Both Corrupt and Ignorant One can only wish that politicians would actually commit themselves to doing good for the American people, but the sad reality is that they spend so much time raising and distributing money that they only respond to constituents with the deepest pockets or those who make the most noise.

Donald Trump and Israel: When Does a 'Passionate Attachment' Threaten National Security? The president is elected to represent the interests of all Americans, not just a wealthy and powerful ethno-religious minority that is able and willing to give him a great deal of money to run his political campaigns.

Pompeo Gives Away the Palestinian West Bank The Israelis could continue their creeping annexation of the West Bank for 10 more years or so while also deliberately driving the remaining Arabs out. They will be empowered to do so by the United States, which will never develop either the integrity or the courage to push back against "America's closest ally and best friend in the entire world."

The White House Plan to Strangle Iran Make no mistake, the United States is conducting an economic war against Iran that is undeniably aimed at making the Iranian people so miserable that they will rise up in revolt. And the punishment being meted out will hurt the poorest and weakest most of all while also hardening support for the regime rather than weakening it.

An Imperfect Bit of Statecraft Along the way, President Trump was not exactly acting with a free hand. He has been beleaguered by a Deep State conspiracy against him that began even before he was nominated, though he didn't have to help his enemies by shooting himself in the head at every opportunity through tweets and demeaning language.

Sanctioning Away Free Speech: Americans Meet With Iranians at Their Peril The United States was a country that prior to the "Global war on terror" was generally liked and respected, but today it is widely regarded as the most dangerous threat to peace in the world. This shift in perception is due to the actual wars that the US has started as well as the sanctions regime which has as its objective regime change of governments that it disapproves of.

The Ukraine Impeachment Fiasco: Both Republicans and Democrats Being Manipulated by the Deep State The real question will be how the impeachment product is sold and how the public will regard the activity. The emerging narrative will determine how Senators vote and also on the 2020 election. And it has to be noted, of course, that no matter what happens, Joe Biden and son will come out smelling bad, two more entitled wealthy men exploiting public office to become even richer even if they did not actually break any laws.

Lying for Israel: Why Nearly Everyone in Washington Does It Trump has further exercised his claim to the Jewish vote by accepting the sobriquet "King of Israel" bestowed by a demented talk radio host. As Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has already asserted that Trump's election victory was the result of divine intervention to "save Israel from Iran," the kingship is presumably an inevitable progression. One can only imagine what will come next.
