Video || Trump: “We’ve Won” and It’s Time to Bring Troops Home from Syria

President Trump is bringing some 2,000 troops home from Syria, claiming the battle against ISIS is won. I can’t say I know what the correct policy is here. I just don’t understand the situation on the ground in Syria well enough. And I expect Trump will maintain some kind of presence in Syria. But I do know that when we have pulled out of these

MSM Meltdown: Washington Post Contradicts Itself on Cause of Suspicious Packages

The Washington Post has two stories running today. One suggests it’s just dumb to speculate on what the motives of the attack were without evidence: We knew nearly nothing, except that the Secret Service had intercepted “potential explosive devices” targeting the Clintons and Obamas, while investigators also looked into a suspicious package at CNN’s New York offices. Days earlier, authorities found an explosive device in

I Don’t Know Who Sent These Packages, But Antifa Makes the Most Sense

The media have utterly abandoned any pretense of objectivity and sobriety in their treatment of the suspicious packages being sent to Democrats, strongly suggesting in numerous articles and TV reports that President Trump is the cause and that a Republican must have done it. While it can never be proven that Trump is the cause unless someone admits it – and Democratic radicalism and violence,

Trump: I’d Consider Sending the NYC Terrorist to Gitmo

Why were we ever thinking of closing such a useful facility? Do you want those people hanging out near your neighborhood? Nice having them in Cuba. I think if we close the Guantanamo Bay prison we should move the prisoners to a detention center in Kalorama, the ritzy section of Washington where Barack Obama lives with a wall in front of his house. Trump, who

Trump Should Wait Before Politicizing the Terrorist Attack

President Trump this morning blasted Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for his sponsorship of legislation that created the Diversity Visa Program, under which Saifullo Saipov, who committed Tuesday’s terror attack in New York City, entered the country. Trump expresses support for a merit-based immigration program. He may be right, but this is not the time to be creating a political issue out of the attack.

Trump Teases Macron: “You Better Do A Good Job” Against Terrorism

Yes, he’d better. But Europe seems more intent on pretending that they have a crime problem, not a cultural one. On the other hand, anyone like Macron who achieves power so young has a Machiavellian streak that may equip him in ways other European leaders are not to deal with the problem of Islamic extremism. BTW, here’s Trump dissing the American media by calling on

New Poll Shows Vast Support for Trump Travel Ban

Well, this certainly contradicts the normal media narrative. A new poll by Politico indicates that American are not ready become a vast sanctuary city for refuguees from countries where terrorists abound. According to Politico: After months of litigation and controversy, six-in-10 voters back the ban — and the survey suggests the actual policy may be more popular when separated from the president. Asked whether they

No, Trump Didn’t Mischaracterize London Mayor Khan’s Remarks

President Trump today tweeted that the mainstream media is abeting London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s spin that Trump took his remarks out of context when he derided Khan for telling Londoners not to be alarmed in the aftermath of a terrorist attack. As far as I can tell, Trump is absolutely right. While, other than to offer support, our president should be staying out of Britain’s

U.S. Strikes al Qaeda in Yemen Under New Trump Fast-Track Rules

Wow. Are we going to fight a war like we’re actually in a war? Treat an enemy that wants to destroy us like it’s an enemy that needs to be destroyed? What a novel idea! And no, despite what Obama told you to get reelected in 2012, al Qaeda is not all but defeated. The U.S. military has opened a new front in the war
