Donald Trump recently asked minority voters like me, “What the hell do you have to lose [by voting for me]?” This question was part of the presidential nominee’s week-long pitch to minority voters.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s assertion that a 14-year-old Islamic State suicide bomber detonated explosives at a wedding in southern Turkey, killing 54 people including 31 children, is currently in question.

Those who lived through the decades-long Cold War between the old Soviet Union and the United States will remember that everyone seemed to take everything from the Olympics to international chess tournaments as part of the struggle. Chess is once again emerging as a point of controversy as we move toward what some fear could degenerate into yet another Cold War.
A most remarkable set of documents was coughed up recently by WikiLeaks. George Soros’ Open Society Policy Center, it turns out, made donations to two faith-based organizations to the tune of $650,000. Initially, this might cause one to think that perhaps Mr. Soros has finally gotten religion. But, no.
The stakes in the South China Sea (SCS) are apparently reaching down to the murky depths of this contentious waterway as Beijing readies its undersea surveillance network to consolidate its presence in the region.
America is a remarkable country, and sometimes it takes a disaster to remind us of how remarkable it is. The millions who indulge a little self-pity over having to choose between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton should look to Baton Rouge for another view.
