In elaborating the sovereignty of Europe, there is no substitute for the Europeans; Germany cannot be governed from the White House and should not wish to be. It is time for the Germans and French to remember how respectable Great Powers govern themselves and discharge their obligations as allies.
Our elites are more interested in proving to themselves and the world that they’re not xenophobes, not racist, and not against open markets to enrich the Third World than they are in their duty to our country and our citizens.
It doesn’t matter if the peace deal is good or bad, whether it halts the fighting or causes more strife. The American people want out.
For too long, American companies, politicians, and academics have caved to Chinese pressure, and the trend will continue as long as CCP-influenced academic rhetoric continues to dominate.
The Pentagon may finally start moving rather than blocking projects such as 5G and USA Rare Earths now that the Defense Department’s No. 3 man is out.
Economic populism and its political cousin, political populism, are an antidote and a reality check to excessive globalization and globalist values and institutions.
Short of abolishing it and starting from scratch, it’s difficult to imagine how the U.N. could be fixed. America’s discretionary contributions should go only to programs that are consistent with our interests and values.
When Trump says “Make America Great Again,” the message is one of restoring the wealth, honor, and status of this shrinking group, which has been crushed by a pincer movement of a hateful elite and a grasping and desperate underclass.

Through several administrations, the United States has bent at the knee to Communists in China. We should not be surprised when the United Kingdom compromises with them.
A compelling case could be made that the Chinese miracle is built on lies. It’s Enron times a billion.
Jacksonianism is built on instinct, not ideology. Donald Trump is very much the same way—but there’s always the peril that sensible instincts will fall prey to cunning manipulation.
The World Health Organization is a case study of how the Chinese Communist Party infects supposedly apolitical institutions. But it doesn’t end there.
While the lessons of 1939 should not be forgotten, neither should we forget the real lessons of the First World War.
Like Otto von Bismarck’s original Kulturkampf, it is a struggle over whose values, beliefs, and practices will prevail.
Washington must now compete against its rivals in China, Russia, and Iran for as much influence around the world as possible. In such a competition, hard-nosed realism, not airy moralism, must be America’s lodestar.

Far from settling scores, America should be looking for the exits as fast as possible. But, at least here, the president’s transactional calculus prevented us from further running up the bill.
America has a new Iran strategy and we should now embrace it.
Let’s just be thankful that war was avoided and no Americans were killed. We can hope President Trump will avoid escalation with Iran and take the chance to get America out of Iraq. If not, it’s just a matter of time before we get dragged back into the abyss.
