Trump Walks Back Syria Pullout As Noose Tightens

If anyone still thinks that Donald Trump has some master plan to kill off his Deep State adversaries they should check themselves into therapy. I know withdrawal is hard, but admitting you have a problem is the first step to curing it. He doesn't have a plan. He may fight them but it won't be … Continue reading Trump Walks Back Syria Pullout As Noose Tightens

Trump Pulls Fast One Pulling Out of Syria

I've been hard on President Trump recently. He's deserved it. But, his decision to announce without any prearranged warning a complete pullout of all U.S. forces in Syria is something I can unreservedly applaud.

What Price Crazy?

“Remember, Remember the Fifth of November…” V for Vendetta Tuesday’s mid-term elections will not be a turning point for the United States.  That happened when we elected Donald Trump in 2016.  The roots of Trump’s win were seeded back in 2008 with Ron Paul. And today the words I wrote then I think hold the … Continue reading What Price Crazy?

Interview: Jeff Rense – Talking Mid-Terms, Kashoggi and Trump’s Temperament

I spent an hour Thursday evening with Jeff Rense chatting about the mid-terms and how the Democrats already look like a party that knows it has lost.  I also try to shed some nuance on Trump's personality and how that relates to his worst foreign policy decisions. We are rapidly approaching the fork in the … Continue reading Interview: Jeff Rense – Talking Mid-Terms, Kashoggi and Trump’s Temperament

When Warren Woke Up to A World Without Her

"When your enemy is making a mistake, why interrupt them?"  - Napoleon. Elizabeth Warren's national political career is over.  And malignant narcissist that she is she keeps trying to score rhetorical points against Donald Trump, thinking if she can just get in a good one, she'll stop being a laughing stock.
