Middle East ‘Insanity’

Middle East ‘Insanity’

on October 16, 2019, 8:59 AM / in Opinion

Patriot Post “Insanity!” That’s the way one Special Forces soldier who helped train and advise Syrian-based Kurds described President Donald Trump’s policy change in the region. One definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results — that’s an apt summary of the situation. George W. Bush was rightly criticized for his premature “Mission Accomplished” […]

on October 3, 2019, 7:05 AM / in Opinion

Do NOT underestimate the combined power of the Democrat Party and its Leftmedia impeachment machine. Last week, as I was preparing a comprehensive analysis on the threat to American Liberty posed by the Democrat Party’s latest proposal to register all firearm transactions, a much more immediate and significant threat to our Constitution emerged.
