Trump's Iran Deal decision -- it could have been worse

October 13, 2017  •  Fox News

It could have been worse. You could almost hear the collective sigh of relief from America's allied capitals when President Donald Trump announced that he was kicking the Iran nuclear deal over to Congress to fix.

True to his campaign pledge, President Trump refused to certify to Congress that Iran has been complying with what he called the "worst" arms control deal the U.S. ever negotiated.

He also asked Congress to impose sanctions on Iran for its continued ballistic missile tests, its aggressive conduct in the region, its support for Syrian president Bashar al Assad, its support for terror and other efforts to destabilize the Middle East, and its human rights abuses.

Las Vegas was the ultimate 'soft target'

October 3, 2017  •  Fox News

There was nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. Some 22,000 people -- young and old, people of all colors and religions -- were attending the final night of a three-day country music festival starring Jason Aldean when they suddenly found themselves cornered in a killing field. Aldean was on the stage when lead began raining down on them as the music played.

This was the ultimate "soft target."

Storm Clouds
Security and intelligence agencies express renewed concern about the terrorist threat.

September 28, 2017  •  City Journal

In his first testimony before a Senate committee, FBI director Christopher A. Wray revealed that the bureau is now investigating 2,000 terrorism cases—an equal number of cases involving radical-Islamic-directed or inspired terror and cases of violence being planned or conducted by white supremacists or other racially motivated extremists. Wednesday's testimony marks the first time that the FBI has divulged that it has about the same number of both types of cases. Wray also told Senator Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, that unlike radical Islamic terrorism, racially motivated domestic terrorism is not a specific crime. While federal law makes it illegal to provide "material support" to a foreign terrorist group, no corresponding law bans support for racially motivated violence.

The two sides of Trump's UN speech -- pro-UN and America First

September 20, 2017  •  Fox News

President Donald Trump spoke his version of truth-to-power -- or powers, all 193 member nations of the United Nations.

His first address to the General Assembly was vintage Trump – a 40-minute mixture of bombast, insults, threats, praise for the ideals of the UN, and a declaration of his belief that America's pursuit of its own interests was in America's best interests and the world's. The speech, which Mr. Trump read from a teleprompter, was also long on contradictions and short on proposals for solving the threats he denounced.

Can Ukraine survive?

September 20, 2017  •  Fox News

The vodka, wine, and bonhomie flowed freely at the 14th annual Yalta European Strategy conference last weekend, where 350 current and former officials, diplomats, academics, and businessmen vowed to support Ukraine, this nation of 45 million which has been locked in a low-intensity war with neighboring Russia for more than three-and-a-half years.

Since Vladimir Putin's 2014 invasion and illegal annexation of Ukraine's Crimean peninsula, the YES conferences have been held not in Yalta, the resort city on the south coast of Crimea and the Black Sea, but in Kiev, Ukraine's capital.
